Chapter 1002 – Zi Qian Jing’s Crisis Part 6
In his point of view, how could a man step up for a woman not caring about offending the North Devil Palace backing the Yuan family unless he had feelings for her?
“Su Zhen!” Shu Ning’s complexion turned ashen as she continued fumingly, “I will say it one more time. Since you had chased me out of the Su family ten odd-years ago, you lost the qualification in meddling with my matters. I still have a maternal grandfather. Even if I was to marry, it will be Grandfather that will step in for me!”
Su Zhen glared at Shu Ning.
‘This brat is really powerful. If I can rope him in as the Su family’s son-in-law, it will only be benefits and no demerits to me…’
Zi Qian Jing looked coldly at Su Zhen. He didn’t say anything from the start. But when he wanted to step up, a wave of laughs suddenly came out from Yuan Luo Xin’s mouth.
He looked cynically at Zi Qian Jing as he said heavily on each of his following words, “Do you think it will suffice just by defeating me? It’s a pity but I have the North Devil Palace backing me. It is an existence that you can’t afford to provoke…”
Zi Qian Jing raised his brows slightly. But he didn’t show any expression that showed that he cared about what he said.
It was at this moment that Yuan Luo Xin’s voice was heard suddenly, echoing within the large hall.
“To every elders of the North Devil Palace, please assist me in killing this stinky brat!”
Swish! Swish! Swish!
At that instant, countless sinister cold aura pressured toward Zi Qian Jing, forcing Zi Qian Jing to retreat a couple steps.
Following that, several figures appeared out of thin air under the crowd’s gaze, standing before Zi Qian Jing.
“North Devil Palace? Spiritual Realm?”
Zi Qian Jing’s gaze darkened.
‘These people are all at the Spiritual Realm. It will be a little difficult for me to face so many Spiritual Realm practitioners by myself…’
“Zi Qian Jing, we have finally found you. I didn’t expect for you to survive the fall from the Heaven Cliff!” The man in green robes sniggered as he looked arrogantly at Zi Qian Jing’s face and continued, “You won’t be able to escape this time! Hahaha! Once we kill you, we can head back to report to the Palace Master. Perhaps all of us will be able to break through to the Supreme Realm. It is a power that everyone strives to possess…”
Zi Qian Jing’s gaze slowly turned cold. He shifted his head to look at Shu Ning that was standing behind him and frowned slightly.
‘It may be possible for me to escape from here but what about Shu Ning? She will definitely be killed if she stays here!’
Shu Ning obviously saw through Zi Qian Jing’s thoughts as she pursed her lips and said, “Quickly leave! I am the cause for this matter. I don’t want to implicate you!”
Zi Qian Jing didn’t say anything. He withdrew his gaze and looked coldly at the crowd before him.
‘Shu Ning had saved my life no matter what. Moreover, she is Mother’s friend. I can’t just leave her behind and escape on my own…’
Currently, white doors had suddenly appeared in the mountain range near the Su City. Two figures walked out from those doors.
“Where are we?” Mu Ru Yue frowned slightly as she silently surveyed the area that she was in now.
But Ye Si Huang’s voice was heard from within the Alchemy Book before she could figure out where she was.
“Mother, I can feel that this place is Su City. Elder Brother Qian Jing’s aura is nearby. He is facing some people now and all of them are at the Spiritual Realm.”
Mu Ru Yue’s heart shuddered as her expression turned serious when she said, “Can it be people of the North Devil Palace? Jing Er is in danger. Wu Chen, we must quickly rush to his side now.”
Ye Wu Chen looked gently at Mu Ru Yue. Yet, when he cast his gaze to the nearby sky, a dark glow flashed past his eyes…
