Chapter 296 –Mu Ru Yue’s Return Part 2
Old Man Xiao’s expression turned sorrowful as his heart was completely engulfed in despair. Nonetheless, being trapped within the protective barrier made his actions useless despite wanting to stop Elder Xiao…
Xiao Tian Yu hugged Madam Sheng Yue’s body tightly, his gaze locked onto Elder Xiao’s expanding body. With a layer of gloom on his handsome face, his tightly clenched fists quivered.
In a corner of the family hall, Xiao Qing Qing was curled up in terror. Her big eyes filling with tears, she bit on her lower lips firmly to prevent herself from wailing.
Since her father had previously told her to stay here, she obediently did so. However, when she felt an inexplicable sense of unease, she wanted to look for her parents. Just as she tried to leave the family hall, she was blocked by a transparent barrier.
She tried to pass the barrier, but it was to no avail…
“Daddy… Mommy… Where are you? Qing Qing is really scared…”
Xiao Qing Qing’s little body started to tremble as she stared fearfully around the empty family hall.
Even though she didn’t know what was going on, she didn’t want to stay here alone. She wanted to go to her parents’ side… Why couldn’t she leave the hall? Where was her mother right now?
Seeing that she was the only one in the family hall, Xiao Qing Qing crouched down and hugged her knees, burying her face. Only her large eyes that were full of unease could be seen…
When Old Man Xiao looked at Elder Xiao’s slowly expanding body, which was on the verge of exploding, he immediately yelled. Sorrowful screams also echoed from within the Xiao family courtyard…
Just when everyone had given up on hope, a silver ray shot through the sky and pierced Elder Xiao’s body. The next moment, Elder Xiao’s expanding body seemed to gradually shrink like a deflating balloon. His body’s tyrannical energy dissipated into the wind.
“Wha… what’s going on?”
Old Man Xiao blinked his eyes as he gazed in astonishment at the person standing in midair, wearing a robe as white and pure as snow.
This young girl’s white clothes fluttered as she glided elegantly in the wind while looking at the crowd below. When she looked up at Nangong Zi Feng, a trace of frost flashed in her eyes.
Madam Sheng Yue was startled when she saw the young girl standing in midair.
In this continent, only Xiantian experts could fly…
‘Can it be that Yue Er had broken through to the Xiantian realm? But, didn’t Mu Rong Qing Chu say she was in danger, with her powers sealed?’
Seeing that her daughter was fine, Madam Sheng Yue felt excitement. She hastily covered her lips as she stared unblinkingly at the young girl with her slightly fluttering white robe.
Mu Ru Yue looked coldly at Nangong Zi Feng before her gaze landed on the flabbergasted Elder Xiao. Her figure flashed through the sky then landed gently before the senior.
Elder Xiao got back to his senses. Astonished, he asked her, “What did you just do to me?”
He clearly felt his body on the verge of exploding, yet Mu Ru Yue shot something unknown into his body. That act had somehow made the rampaging power within him calm down mysteriously…
“I merely used a silver needle to seal your blood vessel to forcefully stop your power from bursting forth.” Mu Ru Yue raised her head slightly as she spoke in a calm and collected manner.
At this moment, her heart felt finally relaxed.
Fortunately, she had rushed back to the Xiao family.
If she had been late by even a second, Elder Xiao and Nangong Zi Feng would have died together…
Elder Xiao was stunned, shaking his head while laughing bitterly. “Eldest young mistress, you shouldn’t have done that. I was already prepared to die. If I had died with Nangong Zi Feng, the Xiao family would be safe and I would have died in the place I have chosen. Cough! Cough…”
