Chapter 265: I Will Withdraw When the Task Is Completed
Translator: Novel Saga Editor: Novel Saga
How could the experienced Mr. Wen not understand the situation he was in?
He had been planning to save the Princess. However, this person had then appeared very inconveniently. Moreover, it was evident that this person had the strength to rescue the Princess. But, he had tossed the Princess into his arms as soon as he had escaped outside. [But how was this man certain that Ive come to save her?]
[This hateful man! He framed me for his actions to cover his tracks now what do I do?]
[This is very problematic!]
He had initially decided to follow them in secrecy. It wouldve been a case of a mantis hunting a cicada unaware of the oriole behind it. Or perhaps it was like an elderly fisherman taking advantage of the fight between two cranes. However, not only was the elderly fisherman unable to take the advantage he had been made a scapegoat! This was ridiculous.
His presence had been exposed. He would no longer be able investigate the mysterious Sky Xuan expert anymore Moreover, he had been rendered incapable of capturing each of the kidnappers since the Princess was in his arms now. And his plan to interrogate them individually had obviously gone down the drain as well. This had obviously turned into a big problem for him since he had no one to look for help. Hence, he was left staring at the kidnappers with a stupefied expression on his face.
He analyzed the situation, [I wont be able to investigate anything since these young kidnappers have spotted me]
Mr. Wen was obviously much more powerful than Lei Jian Hong and his companions. However, his mood was still very regretful.
[That mysterious man had come to save the Princess but then why would he bring her here? And why would you leave her mid-way; especially with these three in pursuit? They couldve captured her back again! Lets say your plot worked how could you call yourself a man even if you were to succeed like this?]
Princess Ling Meng was still struggling and pleading non-stop, Senior, I beg you to kill these people and avenge my uncle Ye
Princess Ling Meng hadnt been able to see the mysterious senior properly despite the fact that she had been in his arms. However, she had still felt safe. [He is very much like Uncle Ye. Ill be in no danger as long as hes here.] Hence, her mind had subconsciously shifted to Ye Gu Hans well-being.
Then, that towering person had tossed her away. She had then been caught by another person. The young girl had been born with a keen sensing ability. She could tell from his persons odor that he was the Imperial Palaces honored guest; the Emperors mysterious friend Mr. Wen.
[He has also arrived here! Now these two extremely skilled people can join hands! No one can escape their combined strength. Theyll be able to avenge Uncle Ye! And such skilled people can also save Uncle Yes life...]
Mr. Wens arms were also warm. But they lacked that inner-warmth which gives rise to a sense of security
Princess Ling Mengs thought process was wonderful. However, it was also nave and fantastical. How could life ever move according to ones wishes? The reality of this matter was as different as from her wishes as it couldve been. In fact, there were no similarities between them
Mr. Wen had already been angered by the way things had turned out. Naturally, he was more than brimming with a desire to fight. He secured Princess Ling Meng with one hand the other he positioned in front to fight with. That hand didnt bear any weapon. Yet, it looked like he held a huge cleaver in it. He seemed so formidable that he had already secured an advantage. He fiercely looked at the three individuals from his younger generation; it seemed as if he would cut them up to pieces.
Mr. Wen had figured that the man had somehow managed to follow their trail without getting discovered. He was sure that the mysterious expert had saved the princess, and had then choreographed this ridiculous scene to protect his own identity. He could tell that this mysterious man didnt wish to expose his identity since it couldve meant a great deal to him. Hence, this highly skilled person had shifted the blame on Mr. Wen. The person who stands up first is always considered superior; such was the thought process of this world. Naturally, Mr. Wen was somewhat embarrassed to be the second. However, what pinched Mr. Wen the most was the fact that he hadnt been able to catch a single glimpse of that mysterious expert.
He had been left with a sense of gloom and inferiority, and had hence remained silent. This was the main reason behind his enraged state of mind. He was a man of extraordinary self. But Mr. Wen had never felt so inferior in his entire life. Mr. Wens strength was unpredictable. No one could ever consider him a mere peak Sky Xuan expert. In fact, even the Eight Great Masters wouldnt find him an easy opponent.
However, Mr. Wen had been caught up in a tricky play here. But he was an experienced man, and was quickly able to assess the variables involved. He jumped out of the circle and spoke with a solemn expression on his face, So, you guys are the Supreme Cold Blooded Masters disciples? I am not aware of the Supreme Master Leis well-being of late. And I certainly dont know how my Tian Xiang Empire has offended the Supreme Master Lei! What could have we possibly done for him to take an action such as this sending his disciples to capture our Imperial Princess? Has the honored senior forgotten the treaty we have as allies?
Supreme Master? What do you speak of Old Man? Come here and die by your fathers hands! Lei Jian Hong denied and abused. Though, he was rather amazed by these turn of events.
[Who is this old man? His strength is barely at the peak Sky Xuan realm. Hes alone, and surrounded by enemies on all sides but hes so calm in this situation... His strength is nowhere near my fathers and whats more he even knows about the treaty of alliance that was signed all those years ago! How did such a high-level personality arrive here at this critical juncture? This matter just got harder to get over with!]
[However, this old bastards Xuan level must be very high. He had managed to kill four of my brother disciples with those throwing knives But such an enmity cannot be recompensed very easily!] Old fool, have the guts to tell us your name! We have a deep-seated blood feud with you, and it is important to settle that debt!
Mr. Wen snorted. He knew that he had been unjustly implicated. He was aware that it wouldnt be worthwhile to explain his true status to these argumentative youngsters. And even if he did try to explain would he be able to do it properly?
But, he was angered by the rude manner in which Lei Jian Hong spoke to him. He then suddenly flew towards Lei Jian Hong and hit his face hard. Then, he shouted, Youre not fit to know this old mans name! You youngsters have ruined Lei Wu Beis reputation! Lei Wu Bei wont be able to save you from my wrath if you violate the alliance-treaty again not even if youre his own flesh! Now get lost!
His feet left the ground once he finished speaking; he was still facing Lei Jian Hong and his companions, and was still holding the Princesss body. Then, he slowly started to float backwards and deeper into the lush woods. But he didnt bump into a single tree it seemed like he had eyes at the back of his head. It even looked as if he was riding a cloud However, they heard his faint voice again, Tell Lei Wu Bei that the old man you spoke to is called Wen. Be sure to tell him properly so that he understands it clearly.
Lei Jian Hong and the others couldnt help but be overwhelmed with shock as they looked at each other. Zhou Jian Ming shouted angrily after a good while had passed, That old bastard kills four of my brothers, and yet he shamelessly talks big! We must settle this debt! Well see where this bastard escapes-to when the Master arrives!
Lei Jian Hong and Fang Piao Hong agreed in unison. Their enemys skills were extraordinary. There was no way those three couldve dealt with him by themselves. Therefore, they were left with no option but to give-up on fighting him at that point even if they did so unwillingly. They could just wait for their masters arrival, and then make a plan
Young Master Jun whistled as he slowly and leisurely returned to his tethered horse. The strong horse freed itself, and Jun Mo Xie mounted it. The Young Master Jun felt rather proud of his achievement. He raised his whip to urge his horse to return home.
He had quickly laid out the whole plan when he had realized that the mysterious expert was also following Lei Jian Hongs trail. He knew that no one could see him once hed initiate the Yin Yang Escape. [Humph! First, come to find me; then you dogs can fight each other! This uncle doesnt have free time to play with you!]
[This is good; Ive saved Princess Ling Meng without exposing my identity. Ive completed my task with above satisfactory rating. The Princess should thank me by clapping her hands.]
He returned home to find Jun Wu Yi anxiously waiting for his arrival.
[What? But why?]
Ye Gu Hans condition had become so bad that he could stop breathing any moment... Even asking the Solitary Falcon to transfer his Xuan Qi had been useless. Even the so-called pure Xuan Qi didnt have any effect on Ye Gu Hans condition even an excess of Xuan Qi had been useless in his case...
because he lacked the vitality needed to produce flesh and blood
Even Solitary Falcon was unable to help he didnt have any means to! The Solitary Falcon had transferred a lot of pure and high-level Xuan Qi into Ye Gu Han without knowing if the man was capable of supporting it
Everyone stood-up as Jun Mo Xie walked in. His face immediately deflated as they asked, Did you find the Princess? Jun Mo Xie shook his head listlessly as he sat down on a chair. He then drank some tea and complained, You thought too highly of me! Those people had captured her, and had escaped a long while ago. How would I be able to find her? I couldnt!
Jun Wu Yi sighed and kept quiet. Dugu Xiao Yi wanted to say something but remained shut since Sun Xiao Mei took her small hand and pinched it. But Solitary Falcon snorted and said, This old man has squandered a lot of Xuan Qi by pouring it into his man. I will waste no more since the Jun Kid has returned. This old man shall return to his cultivation, Then, he suddenly left without any indication. He seemed very carefree as he left.
Dugu Xiao Yis lips twitched, This old man is a quack. He just checked the pulse and nothing else how could your Jun Family invite in such a swindler? What a waste of food!
The Solitary Falcon had reached the door. He staggered when he heard this line; in fact, he almost collapsed. He snorted angrily, [what is wrong with this little girl? This injured boy couldnt have lasted if it werent for this old mans assistance. He wouldnt have survived till this scheming Jun Brat returned unless this Old Man had poured his Xuan Qi and replenished his life-force!]
However, the Solitary Falcon couldnt remain angry after he looked at that little girls pretty face. He then waved his sleeves and disappeared without a trace.
Jun Mo Xie and Jun Wu Yis expression turned strange. They wouldve noisily laughed-out if it werent for Ye Gu Han lying at the doors of death.
Sun Xiao Mei, the Sun Familys eldest daughter had more experience and knowledge than the other little girl. She couldnt completely understand Solitary Falcons origins. But she could tell that this person was someone very extraordinary by just looking at how he had prolonged the near-dead Ye Gu Hans life by transferring his pure Qi until now. She could tell that this seemingly powerful expert was quite smart as well since he had restrained his temper when he was provoked by a nave and inexperienced girl. [The consequences couldve been very serious if he had lost his cool.]
Mo Xie, hurry up and take a look at little Ye! His condition is quite serious! Jun Wu Yi said.
Jun Mo Xie cleared his throat and sat down besides the injured man. To be honest he didnt like Ye Gu Han. And similarly, Ye Gu Han didnt like the debauchee of the Jun Family. However, he would save the mans life since he had promised his uncle.
Either dont try saving him or revive him completely. This was Hit-man Juns standard behavior.
Moreover, Ye Gu Han was an iron-boned warrior, and a good man. There was no harm in saving him.
