248 Young Lord
“Haha, you’re quite self-aware! “I still don’t know your name,” Xu Fengyu laughed when he saw that the other party was so understanding. He didn’t refute or respond, just laughed.
“My name is Gu Mingzhou. Back then, the 173 members of the Gu family all died in your hands. Why did you spare my life?” Gu Mingzhou was very puzzled. Why did Xu Fengyu ask him to stay behind alone?
“I have my reasons for sparing your life. You’ll find out in the future. I’m actually quite curious. Meng Ao wasn’t weak in the clan, but he was killed by a mere human. What a disgrace!” Xu Fengyu didn’t know how strong He Chuan was, but his race had a unique talent for cultivation that ordinary people couldn’t compare to.
It seemed that the Sacred Soul Island had become weaker and weaker in the hundred years that he had been away. He wanted to regain his power and then kill his way back to the Great Zhou Dynasty. He wanted to take revenge for what had happened in the past.
Xu Fengyu seemed to be melancholic and sighing, and the expression on his face was uncertain.
He raised his head and looked up at the sky. He seemed to have fallen into endless memories and was being pulled further and further away. “You killed my entire family with great difficulty, and in the end, you don’t even have an explanation. That’s not good, is it?” Gu Mingzhou felt that things were not that simple. The other party was definitely hiding something from him.
“I didn’t kill your entire family. You’ll naturally know when the time is right.” Xu Fengyu spoke unhurriedly, and in the end, he seemed to have deliberately paused, a smile flashing across his face. Gu Mingzhou wanted to ask for an explanation, but Xu Fengyu deliberately kept him in suspense and did not make things clear to him at all.
The other party’s strength was too heaven-defying. He was no match for him at all. He wanted to force the matter out, but he did not have the strength.
However, the other party said that he didn’t kill his entire family. What was the reason behind this?
He was truly puzzled.
“However, if I want to regain control of this Sacred Soul Island, you must die!” Xu Fengyu’s somewhat melancholic face suddenly turned cold. A strong killing intent was present in the terrifying pressure. Gu Mingzhou felt a chill run down his spine from the sudden pressure.
He could sense the aura of death from the pressure that Xu Fengyu was exuding. At this moment, Xu Fengyu had already decided to kill Gu Mingzhou! “Why? Why are you doing this? In the end, you still want to kill me!” Gu Mingzhou wanted to clarify. He poured out all the doubts and anger in his heart without holding back. Xu Fengyu was a little dumbfounded by Gu Mingzhou’s question, and he was suddenly stunned.
However, he quickly regained his senses, and an elegant and devilish smile reappeared on his face. “Didn’t you just say that even if you have doubts in your heart, and I won’t tell you? After all, it’s only interesting to kill you like this, right?” Xu Fengyu stared at Gu Mingzhou and revealed a playful expression as he chuckled.
Gu Mingzhou clenched his fists in anger, wishing he could kill the other party immediately.
But he didn’t have that ability.
“In fact, there’s no harm in telling you. Your real father was the previous Island Master of the Sacred Soul Island. You were only sent out when you were born. Back then, your true body was sealed by your father and a group of experts!” before he could finish speaking, the evil look on Xu Fengyu’s face disappeared and was replaced by a demonic, cold expression. The stagnant pressure around him started to roll again. A terrifying vital essence gathered on his right arm, and he suddenly slapped Gu Mingzhou with his palm. Whoosh!
The sky changed color, and a strong wind suddenly rose. Xu Fengyu’s seemingly simple palm seemed to contain a power that could destroy the world. It directly tore the void between Xu Fengyu and Gu Mingzhou, and it instantly struck Gu Mingzhou’s forehead. Gu Mingzhou’s expression was still dull as if he had not sensed the arrival of death. There was no expression on his face and Xu Fengyu’s last words before he attacked echoed in his mind!
“I’m actually the Young Master of the Sacred Soul Island? Who are the people here? Why don’t the others tell me the truth?” Gu Mingzhou looked up at the palm that was coming down fiercely, and a look of unwillingness flashed across his face.
Now, Gu Mingzhou had lost all support and all his abilities. He was like a piece of fish on an anvil waiting to be slaughtered. He looked at the palm that was coming down fiercely, unwilling but helpless, and quietly waited for death to come.
One could see the terrifying power contained in Xu Fengyu’s palm with the naked eye. If he were hit, Gu Mingzhou’s soul would definitely be destroyed, and he would die!
However, just as Xu Fengyu’s palm, which seemed to be able to destroy mountains, was about to land on Gu Mingzhou, an arm wrapped in black suddenly appeared above Gu Mingzhou’s forehead. The palm with a black leather cover suddenly met Xu Fengyu’s palm, which emitted a red light.
Bang! A muffled sound, which was not deafening, was heard. It was like the sound of two mortal fists colliding. It immediately sounded three inches above Gu Mingzhou’s head. “I’ve come to find the Young Lord. Who dares to commit murder on the Sacred Soul Island?” an extremely sinister voice suddenly came from behind Gu Mingzhou. His voice reverberated throughout the broken forest.
Just hearing it was enough to make one’s hair stand on end. A cold wind blew on one’s back, and one shivered. However, it was this cold voice that pulled Gu Mingzhou back from the edge of death. “Who’s there!” Gu Mingzhou was shocked. He, who had just narrowly escaped death, looked at the red-robed man in front of him.
Xu Fengyu, who had been so arrogant just a moment ago, staggered backward. A look of surprise instantly appeared on his face, and he quickly turned around to look. A middle-aged man in a black robe appeared behind Gu Mingzhou. It was a middle-aged man who was nearly two meters tall. His facial expression was closely pressed against Gu Mingzhou’s back.
On his strong and powerful arms, two black leather gloves drooped slightly.
The man was wearing a hooded cloak, and the hat covered his entire head, leaving only his angular bronze face that had been engraved by time. “I am Zhou Yuanba. Greetings, Young Lord.” The black-robed man also looked at Gu Mingzhou the moment he saw him. Their eyes met. Under Gu Mingzhou’s confused expression, the black-robed middle-aged man respectfully knelt behind Gu Mingzhou and called out softly. Gu Mingzhou’s face revealed a panicked expression.
One had to know that this black-robed middle-aged man was an existence who even dared to contend with the red-robed man, Xu Fengyu.
Gu Mingzhou could only look up to them. The two people in front of him were beyond his reach. An existence that even he had to look up to suddenly knelt down and saluted him on their first meeting, which really gave Gu Mingzhou a big shock. “Left Devil Emissary, Zhou Yuanba?” Xu Fengyu, who had been pushed back by the black-robed man, took a few steps back. His eyes were fixed on the black-robed man, and surprise flashed across his handsome face.
Facing Xu Fengyu’s surprise, Zhou Yuanba didn’t seem to care at all. He just stared at Gu Mingzhou, not even daring to blink. It was as if she was afraid that Gu Mingzhou would disappear if she blinked.
