117 — Ant Ling; Have Some Tea, Brother Bai!
Ye Ling felt the atmosphere in his surroundings shift and turn unpleasant out of nowhere.
The world around him turned silent, and soon, he felt as if a strong figure was about to rush at him.
A terrifying, oppressive aura descended upon him and made his face change color.
“Who is it!”
Ye Ling’s vigilance shot to the sky as he stared outside the mansion.
The wind halted.
Under the dim moonlight, he could only see a hazy, otherworldly figure standing outside his mansion.
The figure seemed to be ethereal and untouched by the dust of the world around it, and he felt as if it didn’t exist even though he could see it right in front of him.
Endless fog shrouded the figure’s features and strange runes circulated it to release a terrifying might.
Ye Ling could only see a pair of indifferent eyes that stared at him with a gaze that resembled a hunter’s when he stared at his prey.
‘Who is this person When did he appear here Why didn’t I notice him before’
Ye Ling’s heart tightened and a chill went down his back as cold sweat covered his hands and feet; a feeling of unease clawed at his heart.
His aura surged and a terrifying, dark talisman with the breath of the Dao of Reincarnation and extremely destructive might appeared in his hands — he readied himself to attack at a moment’s notice.
At the same time, nervousness overwhelmed Ye Ling.
The person in front of him was the most terrifying person he had ever come across.
It wasn’t his cultivation that scared him, but the aura that he radiated!
The blurred figure let out a chilling laugh, and then his figure blurred and disappeared into thin air.
“We will meet again, ant…”
Ye Ling frowned once the figure disappeared, and even the turtle in his pendant noticed that something had gone wrong outside.
In the next moment, Ye Ling’s expression showed a drastic change as he shouted, “Not good!”
An old man in black appeared from the Void with a jet-black weapon in his hand and slashed at him with the intent to destroy everything in his path!
“Who are you Why are you trying to kill me”
Ye Ling’s complexion changed further.
The man in black turned out to be a God King hiding his aura, who wanted to appear out of thin air and assassinate him in a single stroke.
Immediately, the black talisman in Ye Ling’s hand radiated a terrifying aura that could turn the heavens asunder.
‘He just failed in your assassination, so he won’t dare to make another move in a short time…’
The turtle inside the pendant yelled at Ye Ling to flee from the scene as soon as possible — they couldn’t stay here anymore.
Ye Ling, too, didn’t hesitate and fled as soon as he heard the turtle’s words.
What puzzled him, however, was the fact that the man in black behind him seemed to fear him for some reason, and dared not to go all out with his God King Realm power.
Otherwise, if he went all out, then his attack wouldn’t be so lousy.
Ye Ling couldn’t figure out the ins and outs of the matter, nor did he have the time for that, so he ran as fast as possible to save his life.
What’s more He didn’t want to waste a precious life-saving treasure just to run from a mere God King.
After all, one used meant one less, and using such a mighty treasure against a God King would be a great waste.
‘Young Master, just why did you ask me to do something like this Why can’t I kill that brat, and instead, have to keep him at the edge for his life…’
The old man in black chasing after Ye Ling was none other than Old Ming.
Old Ming couldn’t help but frown as he tried to guess Gu Changge’s intention behind such an order.
Just now, he felt a terrifying aura from the hands of the man in front of him and noticed a pitch-black rune that made him feel as if it could destroy him with ease, so he dared not get too close to Ye Ling.
Either way, Gu Changge’s command was to scare the man without pushing him too hard.
Still, although Old Ming was confused, he followed Gu Changge’s command; Gu Changge’s thoughts weren’t something he could guess, after all.
After Bai Lie sent his followers and retainer to catch Ye Ling, he rushed to the remote courtyard Yin Mei told him about.
Outside the courtyard stood two magnificent white lions made of jade.
‘Yin Mei must be waiting for me, right’
Bai Lie smiled when he felt Yin Mei’s aura from inside the courtyard and pushed open the door at once.
It was a quiet and desolate courtyard, and only after passing through several corridors did he reach a place in the depths of the courtyard that was illuminated by the glow of a candle.
He could see a pot of warm wine on the stone table that gave off an intoxicating fragrance that drifted in all directions.
Beside the table sat a graceful figure in red holding fluffy foxtails in her arms.
A charming smile adorned the beauty’s visage as she appeared to be waiting for someone with her gaze lowered in thought.
‘YIN MEI WAS WAITING FOR ME! She even warmed the wine before I could arrive.’
Bai Lie’s heart roared in joy as he concluded that Yin Mei’s parting words were indeed a hint for him.
“Yin Mei, I am here!”
Bai Lie announced his arrival and walked into the room in excitement while radiating his powerful aura.
Right then, Yin Mei raised her gaze with a strange expression on her face after hearing his words, and said with an unabated smile, “Master was correct! You did indeed come.”
“What Yin Mei, what do you mean Weren’t you waiting for me”
“Also, Master What Master”
The smile on Bai Lie’s face froze as he realized that Yin Mei wasn’t surprised by his arrival, and instead, looked at him with a hint of indifference and ridicule in her eyes.
At the same time, he wondered if he misheard Yin Mei’s words
Who was his fiancee, Yin Mei, referring to as Master
“Master will be here soon, so you can see him then.”
Yin Mei didn’t bother to say anything more after saying those words.
Her expression no longer showed the gentleness Bai Lie was familiar with, and instead, she sat there with a bored and indifferent expression.
Bai Lie was stunned by her words and stood rooted to his spot with a dumbfounded expression like he was struck by a bolt from the blue.
He couldn’t believe that Yin Mei, the gentle and caring fiancee who even helped him see Ye Ling’s true face, would suddenly act like she had nothing to do with him.
She treated him like a stranger!
“Brother Bai, you aren’t wrong; Yin Mei was indeed waiting for you.”
Right then, Bai Lie heard a faint voice from outside the room and saw a figure dressed in white descend towards them under the moonlight.
As soon as Yin Mei saw the newcomer, a respectful and pleased expression appeared on her face and she greeted him, “Yin Mei greets Master!”
Gu Changge landed with a nod.
He casually raised a wine glass made of jade sitting on the stone table, and brought it to his lips for a sip, “Good, I arrived just in time for a drink! The wine hasn’t gone cold yet.”
He downed the wine in one gulp and exclaimed, “Your Dao of Wine Warming is getting better and better.”
“Thank you for your praise, Master.”
Yin Mei showed a sweet smile and looked ecstatic as she heard Gu Changge’s compliment.
“Brother Bai, why are you standing there like that Come, have a drink!”
Gu Changge turned towards Bai Lie, who stood on his spot with a sluggish expression of disbelief and chuckled.
