Ye Chenyuan’s hand that had been by his side suddenly flashed with lightning. Before he could do anything, he heard Mu Qinghan continue.
“However, I’ll definitely help her to get rid of the bloodthirsty tree!” He looked at Ye Chenyuan as he said earnestly, “No matter how huge the cost, even if it costs me my life, I will not hesitate to do so.”
Seeing that Ye Chenyuan had his head lowered and he wasn’t speaking, he stepped forward and his handsome face turned slightly red as he said firmly.
“You don’t have to doubt my resolve. Towards her, I……I-I want to marry her! Although she’s still young, but I can wait! I……”
The people outside the book hall only saw successive explosions on the fourth floor. It seems like someone was having a fight in the book hall? Then they watched as a person burst out from the wall and fell to the ground.
Soon after, someone jumped down from the fourth floor and with a sword in his hand, he headed straight for Mu Qinghan.
The people that were protecting Mu Qinghan appeared at once and three Nascent Souls stood in front of Ye Chenyuan, stopping his alarmingly imposing sword.
If this blow had reached Mu Qinghan, he would barely be alive even if he didn’t die. Who was this person? Was he perhaps the assassin that wanted to assassinate their young master?!
The three Nascent Souls exchanged glances and decided to capture Ye Chenyuan first and put off any discussion till later. Ye Chenyuan was currently shrouded in a formless red evil aura and he looked at them as if he were looking at the dead.
Seeing that a fight was about to occur, the surrounding people quickly went to notify the academy.
Mu Qinghan spat out a mouthful of blood and gritted his teeth as he stopped the few Nascent Souls, “D-Don’t hurt him!”
Mu Qinghan thought that Ye Chenyuan must’ve hit him to avenge his master. After all, if it wasn’t for him, Yuan Chu wouldn’t have to go through that kind of pain. So, even though Ye Chenyuan had broken three of his ribs with that one punch, he couldn’t fight back.
He wiped away the bloodstains by his lips and said to Ye Chenyuan, “Hit me if you want to! I deserve this, she has endured so much suffering because of me. I won’t let her down in this lifetime……so, vent your anger if you want, I won’t retaliate……”
Ye Chenyuan’s sleeves were fluttering in the wind and his entire body was tense like a sharp sword. As he stood there, a killing intent soared. No one would think that he was merely “venting his anger”, he really wanted to kill him!
“Heh……you won’t retaliate?”
Ye Chenyuan’s bottomless eyes narrowed slightly, then his thin lips hooked into a smile.
“Alright, don’t retaliate!”
Saying this, he walked towards Mu Qinghan and the three Nascent Souls quickly moved to stop him but Mu Qinghan stood up and said, “Stand back.”
“Young master……” The situation looked bad……
They had no choice but to step back……what should they do? They’d wait till the young master realises that this person actually wants to kill him then they’ll try to save him.
Mu Qinghan looked at Ye Chenyuan, his cold eyes were full of seriousness.
“You’re her disciple, I won’t make things difficult for you, after all……we’ll be family in the future.”
Once he said this, the surroundings suddenly became chilly.
One of the Nascent Soul bodyguards stroked his own arms and said, “Young Master has used the frost martial technique?”
The other person was shivering all over as he gave him a tug, “L-Look at that person’s eyes……”
When he looked over, he was instantly pushed away by a rush of killing intent.
Ye Chenyuan looked at Mu Qinghan with a very strange smile as he said word by word.
“Alright, I’ll kill you.”
With a bang, black smoke appeared out of nowhere and it enveloped the two, obscuring their view of what was happening inside.
“Oh no! Save him quick!”
Successive and quick groans sounded from within the black smoke. By the time they got rid of the black smoke with a magic treasure, Ye Chenyuan was holding Mu Qinghan up by the collar.
Mu Qinghan had sustained serious internal injuries, he didn’t think that Ye Chenyuan would make his move so ruthlessly. His defensive treasures had been smashed by Ye Chenyuan and he’d even broken a few bones on his body!
He looked at Ye Chenyuan in astonishment, only to hear him say beside his ear, fuming with rage between gritted teeth.
“Remember this, master is mine alone! Anyone who even thinks of getting involved must die!”
Saying this, he clenched his other hand that was hidden in his sleeve. In his palm was a thunderbolt and the consequences would be unthinkable if one was struck in the chest by it.
In this moment of imminent peril, Yuan Chu rushed over and grabbed him.
“You! What are you doing?!”
Yuan Chu was quite shocked. With Mu Qinghan in the way, no one had seen Ye Chenyuan’s fatal iron fist that hid murderous intentions. The consequences for Mu Qinghan would be terrible if he was hit.
She was struck by an electric current when she grabbed onto Ye Chenyuan’s hand, but for the sake of Mu Qinghan’s life, she didn’t let go.
Ye Chenyuan was looking at Yuan Chu with a very scary gaze. At the thought that Yuan Chu had acted recklessly for this person’s sake and how she’d purposely kept it from him because she was afraid that he would find trouble with Mu Qinghan……a red glint flashed in Ye Chenyuan’s eyes and on his deity-like handsome face, a faint bright red appeared on his forehead.
This scared Yuan Chu, and thinking that he was about to Qi deviate, she quickly made a chop to his neck, knocking him out.
Ye Chenyuan didn’t have his guard up against Yuan Chu so he was hit. Mu Qinghan’s bodyguards held onto him while Yuan Chu held onto Ye Chenyuan as she looked at him with a frown.
“Bring your young master to treat his injuries, this matter……we’ll talk about it next time.”
Saying this, she moved to bring Ye Chenyuan away.
Thinking of leaving after beating up their young master? One of the bodyguards was about to make a move when Mu Qinghan stopped him, “You’re not allowed to go!”
At this moment, Ye Chenyuan’s words were repeating over and over again in Mu Qinghan’s mind and he was feeling quite shocked.
Could it be that……Yuan Chu’s disciple actually had that kind of feelings towards her?
He frowned, but because his internal injuries were serious, he said weakly, “Help me back to treat my injuries.”
“What about her……”
Mu Qinghan shot him a cold glare, “If you’re that free……you can go and help Fei Heng to investigate the matter of the switched tokens.”
That Nascent Soul was embarrassed and he shut up, not daring to even give a word of retort.
The Empire was different from the Immortal Sect and this was one of the differences. In the Immortal Sect, strength equaled to power, but in the Empire, strength would sometimes have to bow to power.
After returning, Yuan Chu couldn’t understand why Ye Chenyuan had attacked Mu Qinghan so after she placed him down on the bed, she shouted huffily.
“Venerable Li, quick! Come out and tell me what happened!”
Venerable Li quietly came out. There was curiosity in his eyes as he looked at Yuan Chu.
“What are you looking at me like that for?”
Venerable Li looked at her as he said earnestly, “When he was young, Little Yuan liked to stick to you and I’d thought that this desire to possess you would fade a little as he grew up, but unexpectedly, it’s actually growing in intensity. I’m thinking if……could it be because……”
Yuan Chu became anxious. She looked at Ye Chenyuan who had been placed on the princess bed and asked in a tense voice.
“Because of what?”
Venerable Li said with a sigh, “It must be because you’re too worrisome and is constantly causing trouble so Little Yuan has become a father before he even became a husband!”
