Those energy wires were very sharp, and when the three of them broke the nets, Li Yue had disappeared in the forest.
Lian Yu touched a bloody cut on his face by the energy wire, looked in that direction and sighed: “Beauty is ruthless, but I like it.”
Bai Rui and Liu Guang also suffered minor injuries. Liu Guang gritted his teeth and said, “He runs fast! Hey, little white face, are you still fighting?”
Lian Yu looked at the two men’s guarded appearance, relaxed his whole body and smiled: “The beauty has abandoned me, and naturally I won’t fight anymore. It’s more comfortable to relax your muscles and bones like this with you.”
The attendants quickly walked over, and one took another ornately decorated chariot from the storage bag, and the four of them carried it up. Lian Yu jumped up holding the attendant who had been injured by Liu Guang before, took out a brocade handkerchief and gently wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth, and said pitifully: “Hongyi, does it hurt?”
The attendant’s face was red as he pressed himself against his chest and said, “There is a young master who loves me, so naturally it doesn’t hurt.”
With a wave of Lian Yu’s hand, the attendants quickly carried the chariot and left. The bandits did not dare to resist, and they all gave way when they saw them coming.
Liu Guang was still angry with himself, but he also knew that he could no longer catch up with Li Yue’s escape. He was probably not Lian Yu’s opponent to fight on his own, and it was useless to entangle him.
Remembering his mission, he pointed his sword at the people in Lanyue Village who were far away from him, raised his chin slightly and said, “Where is your village master? Quickly bring out all the people and things you robbed this time!”
Liu Wu was taken aback, only then did he understand the origin of these two teenagers.
How could anyone be willing to spit out the meat they swallowed? But now the main hall is ruined, and almost half of the bandits were injured. Both of them were too strong, and he was afraid the follow-up rescuers would arrive soon…
He gritted his teeth and helped his men to stand up and said in a cold voice: “You can have the people, but the goods have already been swallowed, if you take them by force, Lanyue Village will fight to the death!”
Most of the bandits here came from the slums, and Liu Guang did not want to fight with them. He thought for a while; his mission is to rescue the young master, so he casually put his sword on his waist and said, “Okay, deal, release the young master and the imprisoned guards.”
Liu Wu breathed a sigh of relief and said, “Good! Bring up all those captives!”
During the fight, the females were transferred to the back hall, and the other prisoners were in the cell, but they were not affected by the fight just now.
While Liu Guang was talking, Bai Rui had quietly returned to Cheng Nuo’s side, and Cheng Nuo was almost startled.
Cheng Nuo was dazzled by the battle just now, but his blood boiled like boiling water. He patted Bai Rui lightly on the shoulder, smiled and said, “Bai Rui, you are very good.”
Bai Rui’s eyes just looked at him quietly, and he didn’t answer. Cheng Nuo became embarrassed and nervous. He glanced awkwardly at Cao Tou next to him, but the Cao Tou’s attention was elsewhere, just staring at Liu Guang.
He quickly avoided Bai Rui’s gaze and turned his eyes to Liu Guang, but his face was already hot.
When Liu Guang found that Bai Rui was not there, he guessed that he had gone to Cheng Nuo’s side and could not help but grind his teeth. However, he also knew that Cheng Nuo would be safer with Bai Rui, so he secretly endured and commanded the uninjured guards to send all those females to the cart.
Cheng Nuo looked at his dazzling appearance from afar with his eyebrows raised, and couldn’t help but smile, “Liu Guang has really grown up.”
Cao Tou looked at him strangely. In his heart, Liu Guang was his eldest brother since childhood. Why did Cheng Nuo still talk about Liu Guang with that kind of affectionate tone?
He smiled and whispered, “Brother Cheng, Jin Yu and I will stay in the village. You and Brother Guang take care.” With that, he walked slowly towards Liu Wu and Chu Yunxuan over there.
Cheng Nuo was dumbfounded and immediately remembered the position of these two people.
A thought suddenly popped up in his mind: if Liu Guang had not met him back then, would he also have gone to become a bandit? He didn’t like a lot of the things that nobles did, but life in the sect was more acceptable to him than banditry…
Liu Guang also saw Cao Tou beside Liu Wu and laughed from afar: “You boy is promising now.”
Cao Tou smiled shyly at him, and then said to Liu Wu, “Grand Master, this is Brother Guang, also from the slums.”
When he said that, the tense atmosphere obviously eased up, Liu Wu clasped his fist towards Liu Guang and smiled, “It’s true that we don’t know each other without fighting, I hope that the next time we meet I won’t be so rude.”
Liu Guang also clasped a fist in return. When these people hurt Cheng Nuo, he naturally didn’t bother to answer, but Cao Tou and Jin Yu obviously chose to stay here, so he couldn’t be too cold.
The team was quickly organized, and Cheng Nuo and Bai Rui also walked over.
After meeting in a hurry, Liu Guang didn’t even take a good look at Cheng Nuo. At this time, he couldn’t help but hold Cheng Nuo and jump on a leopard-headed magical beast, holding his waist tightly behind his back.
In front of everyone, especially Bai Rui, Cheng Nuo suddenly became embarrassed, and his eyes could only look ahead pretending to be natural.
Bai Rui glanced at the Liu Guang faintly, then turned over and jumped on the other beast.
The convoy began to move quickly, and Liu Guang smiled at Cao Tou and said, “Take care of yourself and the Jin Yu. If you anything happens, you can go to Qinghua Sect to find me.” Cheng Nuo also turned his head and smiled at him, waving vigorously.
Caotou nodded reluctantly, watching the group of convoys gradually disappear into the night.
Liu Guang carefully probed Cheng Nuo’s pulse and made sure that there was nothing wrong with it, only then he was relieved. So many days without seeing him, but he couldn’t say many words because of the crowd, especially a super eyesore person around.
He turned his head impatiently to look at Bai Rui and said, “Are you dark guards so idle? Those people have been rescued, why are you still following us?”
Bai Rui stared straight ahead and said simply: “Lian Yu and Li Yue haven’t gone far yet.”
Liu Guang tsk’d*, and finally swallowed the sentence “I can protect him by myself”. Indeed, if he ran into Lian Yu now, he might not be able to protect Cheng Nuo by himself.
(* same as last chapter, 切 is meant to express a sound of disdain, like ‘tch’ or ‘che’.)
Listening to the conversation between the two of them, Cheng Nuo felt very guilty for some reason, shrinking his neck without saying a word.
Liu Guang thought he was tired, so he relaxed his body to make him more comfortable, and whispered: “You can take a break. I’m afraid we won’t be able to reach the town ahead until the day after tomorrow. Then you can take a good rest.”
Cheng Nuo gave an unceremonious “hmm”, and slowly closed his eyes. In fact, he had a lot to say lot to Liu Guang, and he wanted to talk to Bai Rui too, but now when the two of them were in front of him at the same time, he didn’t know what to say.
Fatigue slowly crept up and Cheng Nuo really fell asleep. It was early in the morning when he was awakened again by the noise.
Liu Guang and Bai Rui obviously stayed up all night and kept on the road, but they were both in good spirits. Liu Guang smiled at Cheng Nuo and said, “Take a break and eat something before leaving.”
The rich ingredients brought by the earlier team were all lost. Liu Guang divided the guards into teams, one team picked up firewood and water, one team hunted, and the rest stayed to protect the females. The current carts were far less comfortable than before, and the mountain roads were bumpy. The females were now wilting after the previous shock.
Liu Guang slightly raised his chin and said to Bai Rui, “You, the idle dark guard who has nothing to do, can also do something. Go and find food.”
“Dark guards are not under the command of Qinghua Sect.” Bai Rui calmly replied and went to a secluded place to sit down.
Liu Guang glared at him and whispered to Cheng Nuo, “I’ll be back soon.
Cheng Nuo nodded and said with a smile, “be careful.”
He (Cheng Nuo) had lost a lot of blood before. At this time, his face was still a little pale and his lips were dry.
Liu Guang looked distressed and instructed anxiously: “Well, you sit down and have a good rest.”
As soon as Liu Guang left, Bai Rui walked towards him and hesitantly asked: “Are you okay?”
Cheng Nuo quickly smiled at him and said, “It’s all right, almost all of the poison from before is gone.”
He recalled Bai Rui’s mission and said worriedly: “Li Yue has escaped… Is it okay if you can’t complete your mission?”
Bai Rui nodded carelessly and said, “No matter. Escort you first.”
Cheng Nuo looked at his confident appearance and could only choose to believe it. Every time Bai Rui mentioned his own situation, he just brushed it off, maybe because of the dark guard.
When Bai Rui’s hand fell, a drop of blood dripped along his finger to the ground. Cheng Nuo’s heart tightened, and he suddenly tensed up. “Are you injured?”
“Just a minor injury.” Bai Rui glanced at it indifferently.
Cheng Nuo rolled up his sleeves forcefully and was immediately shocked by the hideous wound.
This wound should have been caused by Li Yue’s energy wires, which penetrated deeply into the flesh, three or four inches long and more than an inch deep. Because Bai Rui’s skin was too fair, the wound became more dazzling.
He glanced up at Bai Rui speechlessly. Bai Rui should have secretly changed the dusty clothes before. With such a neat personality, why didn’t he care about his wounds? He stopped talking, and quickly used healing techniques to help Bai Rui stop the bleeding, then applied medicine to his wound and wrapped it up.
During the treatment, Bai Rui kept his head down and looked at the top of his (Cheng Nuo’s) hair, his eyes especially soft. Cheng Nuo was very embarrassed. He had rolled in the mud several times before, and his clothes were already dirty. He was afraid that he would have gray marks on his face…
Somehow, when Bai Rui looked at him so quietly, he became very nervous, and his mind was out of control.
When Liu Guang came back from hunting with a few guards, he saw Cheng Nuo and Bai Rui standing very close from afar. Cheng Nuo was still holding the arm of that surnamed Bai! He threw the prey on the ground for the guards to handle, walked over with a calm face and said, “Cheng Nuo, what are you doing?”
Startled by the sudden sound, Cheng Nuo raised his head abruptly, almost hitting Bai Rui’s chin.
He hurriedly smiled at Liu Guang and explained: “Bai Rui is injured, I’ll help treat him.”
Liu Guang glanced at Bai Rui’s arm, grabbed Cheng Nuo’s hand and pulled him aside, disdainfully saying: “That’s also considered an injury? Surnamed Bai, you are too useless!”
He grinded his teeth secretly. In fact, the energy wire cut into his ankle, but he knew Cheng Nuo’s temperament and concealed it without saying anything. Anyway, it didn’t matter. The person surnamed Bai was really more delicate than a female!
Cheng Nuo turned his head and smiled apologetically at him (Bai Rui) and his body was pulled away by Liu Guang.
Bai Rui’s face was still very calm. He found an empty corner and sat down again.
They set up seven or eight fires, and the processed meat was quickly roasted on the fire. Fearing that Cheng Nuo would be hungry, Liu Guang directly roasted it with fire energy and soon cooked a goat sized beast.
Cheng Nuo first asked the guards to give them to the females. Although there are no women in this world, after being here for a long time, he had become more and more sympathetic to those females. In this world, females are indeed not to be seen as real men… He saw that Bai Rui never came over, so he cut off a beast leg with a knife to send over.
Liuguang rolled his eyes and said: “Why give it to him? Since he won’t come over, he’s probably not hungry.”
Cheng Nuo was speechless. He found that Liu Guang still had the temperament of a leader in front of everyone, but when he met Bai Rui, he completely turned into a child. He saw that there was no one around, so he lightly tapped on Liu Guang’s head and smiled: “He doesn’t like crowds. I’ll give it to him and come back soon.”
Liu Guang glanced at Cheng Nuo’s back and grinded his teeth angrily.
Cheng Nuo said that he didn’t like being treated as a female, so he tried not to look at him that way. Cheng Nuo associated with other males, and he endured it even if he was unhappy in his heart. But why be so nice to Bai Rui ah? Although he owed Bai Rui a lot of favors…
His ears pricked up unconsciously, and he listened carefully to the conversation between the two of them.
