Chapter 471 – Xiao Family’s Plot Part 1
Hei Zhi’s expression turned grim as panic filled his eyes. If Elder Zhang self-destructed, then he would also die…
“Young mistress, I’m sorry. If I do have a next life, I wish to serve you again.”
A satisfied smile filled Elder Zhang’s eyes, but as his sight began to dim, he seemed to see Yao Yun Qing’s frantic expression. He gradually closed his eyes.
A shriek was heard from beside him, causing his body to jolt.
It was the young mistress’s voice. She returned…
Elder Zhang opened his eyes in shock as he watched Yao Yun Qing stumbling rapidly toward him. He hastily shouted, “Young mistress, quickly leave. You must leave now!”
Yao Yun Qing’s steps stumbled and she almost fell. She ran frantically toward Elder Zhang with tears streaming down from her eyes.
“Elder Zhang, no!”
Seeing Elder Zhang’s expanding body, Yao Yun Qing’s legs softened and she finally fell to the ground. She shakily reached out a hand toward Elder Zhang as unparalleled fear surged in her eyes.
“Young mistress, you must survive. This old man can then die without any regrets…”
Elder Zhang smiled toward Yao Yun Qing as he coaxed, “If you still acknowledge this old man, you must leave while you still have the time. If not, it will be too late and you won’t be able to avenge me.”
Yao Yun Qing’s body shuddered violently.
‘I hate myself for being so weak and useless. Must I watch on as Elder Zhang dies?
‘No! I can’t do that!!’
Suddenly, a silver ray of light soared through the air and pierced Elder Zhang’s body.
Elder Zhang’s body that had been swelling up like a balloon, deflated.
Yao Yun Qing was stunned as she stared in shock at Elder Zhang, the tears on her face still watery.
“This… what is going on?” Elder Zhang widened his eyes in astonishment.
He felt that something had restricted his power, making him unable to self-destruct. But… how could this happen?
Elder Zhang was in disbelief and grew stupefied.
Hei Zhi snapped out of his fear and burst out laughing. “Old man, since you want to die, how about I send you to heaven?”
At this moment, a childish voice was heard from behind him, “Heaven? What is that? Is it fun?”
Hei Zhi’s body jolted and he shifted his gaze to where he heard that voice. Instantly, a jade-carving like face appeared in his sight.
It was a toddler boy of about five years of age.
He looked as adorable as an immortal child with his snow-white clothes. His long eyelashes fluttered slightly as his bright large eyes were filled with happiness.
“Whose kid are you?” Hei Zhi frowned and asked.
The little boy giggled innocently and adorably. With a pure ray of light in his eyes, he introduced, “I am Xiao Bai. I am mother’s adopted son. But not everyone can call me Xiao Bai. Uncle, you can call me ‘Reverend Lord Divine Dragon’.”
Hei Zhi sniggered. “Kid of some unknown origin, this matter doesn’t have anything to do with you. Scram! This old man wants to deal with that old fellow.”
Xiao Bai wasn’t angered and instead said, his face brimming with smiles, “Uncle, Xiao Bai has been sealed away for such a long time. You will be the first person to be killed by Xiao Bai after leaving that place today! Previously, your men nearly killed mother’s eldest brother, so you must die!”
Hei Zhi was startled before bursting out into laughter. “Haha! Just by a small fry like yourself? Stop joking around. I need but a finger to deal with you!”
