After arriving at Fengyi Restaurant, the two of them sat on a bench at the side, waiting for Kong Li and the others to arrive.
As minutes goes by, the three disciples were still nowhere to be seen.
It had been a long time and was past midnight.
“Why aren’t they here yet?” Jiang Yun gradually became suspicious. Even if they had gone to the suburbs, they should have arrived by now. “Xiaoxi, I’m a little worried. I don’t know if they will encounter any danger.”
Qin Xiaoxi had the same thought, but she hugged Jiang Yun and comforted him. “I don’t think so. Why don’t you wait here while I go to the suburbs to look for them?”
Jiang Yun quickly shook his head. He definitely wouldn’t let Qin Xiaoxi go to the suburbs alone.
However, at this moment, a strange cold wind started to surge around them. Jiang Yun couldn’t help but frown and looked around vigilantly.
Qin Xiaoxi also realized that something was wrong.
Jiang Yun felt a familiar aura. This aura was none other than He Zhao, who carried the Power of Blood Shadow at the Qin family’s banquet! However, this time, He Zhao’s aura seemed to be stronger than before.
Yet, this wasn’t the end. He also sensed another terrifying power.
The two of them stood up one after another. Qin Xiaoxi also drew the Yue Maiden Sword from behind her back. The two of them looked around vigilantly. At that moment, a few streaks of black fog instantly descended from the sky.
In the end, they turned into people wearing hoods and terrifying masks.
Jiang Yun was naturally very familiar with them. They were the Blood Shadow Sect’s minions who had attended the Qin family’s banquet with He Zhao.
After they landed, they continued to approach the two of them.
Following that, two more black fog landed on the ground, one on the left and one on the right.
One of them was He Zhao, whom he was extremely familiar with. He Zhao had bare arms, and countless dark red marks covered half of his body. He looked neither human nor ghost.
The other person was a woman wearing a veil. This woman was very similar to the description given by the clerk of the Emerald Pavilion. She had long red hair that was slightly curled. Under the veil, her eyes revealed a hint of charm and seductiveness, and her figure was extremely graceful.
The woman’s attire was extremely strange. She was dressed in a foreign style.
It seemed that there was no mistake. This was the image described by the Emerald Pavilion clerk.
“Long time no see, Jiang Yun. This is… your lover?” He Zhao looked at Jiang Yun and Qin Xiaoxi coldly. A chilling smile appeared on his face.
“What? Are you here to look for a fight again? Did you bring helpers this time?” The corners of Jiang Yun’s mouth curled up slightly. He did not take He Zhao seriously at all. However, the woman beside him was the one he should be worried about.
“You!” When He Zhao heard these words, he was enraged. He immediately clenched his right hand that had already changed its appearance. Dark red energy began to fluctuate in his hand.
However, he was stopped by the woman beside him.
“Don’t be rude to the guest we want to invite!” The woman chuckled and slowly walked forward.
For some reason, this woman actually revealed an extremely terrifying aura. Even Jiang Yun was unable to see through her.
“I’ve long heard of Sect Master Jiang. I wonder if I could invite you and your beloved to the residence for a cup of tea?” The woman’s voice revealed some teasing.
“What’s your purpose?” Jiang Yun frowned and raised his voice.
“Do you think there’s any room for questions?” The woman laughed, and then her voice gradually became cold.
Although this woman didn’t look simple, Jiang Yun wasn’t a pushover. In terms of imposing manner, he didn’t lose out to this woman.
“Why do you think I’ll go with you?” Jiang Yun laughed coldly.
“It’s all up to Sect Master Jiang. I wonder what will happen to your three disciples…” the woman laughed as if she had heard a joke.
Jiang Yun and Qin Xiaoxi’s hearts were instantly gripped. Jiang Yun couldn’t hold it in any longer.
“What did you do to them?”
Jiang Yun’s eyes gradually showed traces of anger. However, he still restrained himself and calmly spoke to the woman.
“I will only say this once. You have no right to ask questions, and if you don’t follow me, then I am sorry. Your three obedient disciples will become corpses in the gutter.”
The woman no longer had a smile on her face. Every word she said indicated that she had captured Kong Li and the others and she could take their lives at any time.
“You despicable woman!” Qin Xiaoxi also cursed but was stopped by Jiang Yun.
“Okay, I’ll go with you but she has to stay.” Jiang Yun stared at the woman in front of him.
“No! I want to go with you.” Qin Xiaoxi immediately stopped him.
The woman chuckled and said, “I’m sorry, Sect Master Jiang. I said that you two will come together.”
“Okay, let’s go!” Qin Xiaoxi looked at the woman angrily. If she hadn’t used Jiang Yun’s three disciples as bargaining chips, she would have already drawn her sword and charged forward.
“Hehehe, young lady, you’re really straightforward.” The woman covered her mouth and laughed, then turned around.
“How do we…” Qin Xiaoxi wanted to ask where to go, but the woman raised her right hand and snapped her fingers. Then, an endless black fog instantly surged toward Qin Xiaoxi and Jiang Yun. The surrounding area seemed to be torn apart.
Jiang Yun and Qin Xiaoxi could clearly feel that they were being pulled and shaken in the darkness.
Everything fell into chaos. Qin Xiaoxi wanted to reach out and grab something, but she felt very powerless.
In her panic, Jiang Yun’s familiar voice sounded again.
“Don’t be afraid, Xiaoxi.”
Immediately after, Jiang Yun gave her a warm hug. Just like when she was trapped in the avalanche in the Northern Region, Jiang Yun protected her again.
At this moment, the woman’s ghostly laughter kept coming from the surroundings.
The tearing from the darkness lasted for an unknown amount of time, and finally, a strong sense of weightlessness came.. Jiang Yun only felt his body falling continuously, and he could not use any spiritual power.
