694 This Is an Order
When Xue Fanxin suggested fighting alone, Heiyao, Heiran, and Heiyue strongly objected, because they could not let the consort fight alone.
They were Black Shadow Guards. No matter what happened, especially during dangerous battles, they should be at the front. How could they watch their master fight from the side?
“You’ll only die if you go, and you’ll even drag me down. Therefore, I’ll go to the battle in three days’ time alone. At most, you can only watch from the edge of the sandstone pit. If anything goes wrong, immediately jump back into the sandstone pit.”
“That’s an order.”
With this order, Heiyao and the others had nothing to say.
Forget it. At that time, they would watch the battle from the edge of the sandstone pit. If the consort was in danger, they could save her in time.
“Alright, I’m going to rest. All of you can leave.”
When everyone left, Xue Fanxin heaved a sigh of relief. She admired and yet felt helpless towards these loyal and stubborn subordinates.
She really did not know how Ah Jiu had trained these people. All of them were so outstanding.
Forget it. Anyways, as long as she fought a few more times and showed them her ability, they would probably be relieved.
The rock monsters would only appear again in three days. In other words, she had three days to rest.
“Forget it, I’m going to sleep.” Xue Fanxin lay on the bed and planned to have a good sleep first. As for everything else, she would think about it when she woke up.
When Xue Fanxin was sleeping soundly, some people could not even eat.
Du Yuxuan was still depressed that Xue Fanxin had not been killed by the rock monster. When she returned to her tent, she flared up at her senior brothers and sisters and scolded them.
At this moment, Old Man Yin Feng came to talk to Du Yuxuan in private.
“Miss Du, I’m not afraid to tell you the truth. With the ability of the Nine Cloud Palace, it’s not difficult to destroy the Heavenly Spirit Sect. If the people of the Heavenly Spirit Sect find out that you provoked the Nine Cloud Palace and the wife of the Palace Master of the Nine Cloud Palace, I’m certain that your Sect Master will definitely send your head to the Nine Cloud Palace in exchange for the safety of the Heavenly Spirit Sect.”
“What… what did you say?” Du Yuxuan was frightened by Old Master Yin Feng’s words and panicked.
The Heavenly Spirit Sect was one of the three great sects of the Mystic Realm. It had a heritage of thousands of years and the Nine Cloud Palace was not even ranked. Even if it had a good reputation over the years, she had never thought that the Nine Cloud Palace had the ability to resist the Heavenly Spirit Sect.
Because of this, she was not afraid of those from the Nine Cloud Palace, nor did she take Xue Fanxin, the wife of the Palace Master, seriously. She even thought that when she returned to the Heavenly Spirit Sect, she would definitely get her grandfather to fight back on her behalf.
If the truth was as Old Man Yin Feng said, wouldn’t she be in a terrible state?
The more Du Yuxuan thought about it, the more panicked she became. Thinking of what Old Man Yin Feng had done previously, she questioned him unhappily, “Then why did you still dare to injure the people from the Nine Cloud Palace? Although I asked you to do this, since you know how powerful the Nine Cloud Palace is, why did you still provoke them?”
“Previously, we were trapped in this desert and I had a favor to ask of Miss Du. I thought that those people from the Nine Cloud Palace most likely could not leave this place alive, so I made such a choice. Now that the wife of the Palace Master of the Nine Cloud Palace is here, I feel that she is a variable. If she leaves alive with these people from the Nine Cloud Palace, you and I will be finished.”
The Nine Cloud Palace was indeed not to be trifled with, and the Lord of the Nine Cloud Palace was even more so not to be trifled with.
However, he had already provoked this person. He had to think of a way to resolve the matter as soon as possible.
