Chapter 1103 Setting the Trap
In a valley tens of thousands of miles away from Zhou Yuan and the others, tents were set up everywhere.
On the highest point of the valley, w.a.n.g Xuanyang was peering into the distance and fanning a black-and-white jade fan. After a while, he opened his mouth and said, “Are all the secret sentry posts around the Zixiao Region set up?”
“All set up. Any team leaving the Zixiao Region territory will be under our control.” Qianhu, who had one arm broken, replied in a low voice.
w.a.n.g Xuanyang nodded with a satisfied smile, and his eyes gleamed l.u.s.tfully. “Su Youwei is a superb furnace, if we can seize her Yin source, it will be of great benefit to me. But it’s a pity that we have to operate incomplete secrecy and clean up well afterwards. We have to get rid of her in the end. Otherwise it would be enjoyable to have her around.”
Qianhu said after some hesitation, “I’m worried Dong Ye will go crazy then.”
“If we do things cleanly, she can’t do anything to me even if she has her suspicions.” w.a.n.g Xuanyang smiled.
“Wu Yao from the Wushen Region is also excellent, but Guan Qinglong seems to have a thing for her. That guy shouldn’t be messed with, so it’s best to not anger him for the time being.”
w.a.n.g Xuanyang licked his lips, and a sinister smile curved the corners of his mouth. “But if we can collect those two Yin sources, Guan Qinglong might not be able to do anything to me afterwards…”
Qianhu looked a little terrified. After all, Guan Qinglong, who was ranked number one on the Heavenly Sun List, was too powerful. Even someone as fierce as Qianhu feared Guan Qinglong from the bottom of his heart.
w.a.n.g Xuanyang shot a glance at him, and contempt flashed across his eyes. Waving his fan, he strode down the mountain.
“Remember to report any updates to me.”
While w.a.n.g Xuanyang waited, six days had pa.s.sed.
But he wasn’t anxious at all. Dong Ye valued Su Youwei very much and wouldn’t let her out; however, w.a.n.g Xuanyang didn’t believe she could lock her in all the time. After all, Su Youwei also came to Guyuan Heaven to search for opportunities and did not come as a prisoner.
And it was indeed as w.a.n.g Xuanyang thought.
On the ninth day, a message arrived.
“The Zixiao Region will search for a low-cla.s.s vein, and the team will be led by a veteran advanced Heavenly Sun expert and Su Youwei will a.s.sist…”
In the camp, as w.a.n.g Xuanyang read the scroll in front of him, his eyes fixed fiercely on Su Youwei’s name. Then, he stretched out his finger and stroked it gently with a drunken look.
“Little beauty, you will soon fall into my hands.
“I heard you have a good relations.h.i.+p with Zhou Yuan.
“Haha, that’s even better…”
He flicked his sleeve, got up and walked out of the camp. At that moment, the night sky was dotted with stars like grains of sand.
However, w.a.n.g Xuanyang was in no mood to admire the stars or moon. Black-and-white light flowed around his body as he vanished into thin air.
But when w.a.n.g Xuanyang disappeared, a figure sitting cross-legged that he didn’t see opened his eyes. It was Zhao Mushen.
A strange arc curved his lips as he peered in the direction that w.a.n.g Xuanyang left.
A team of more than 300 people from the Zixiao region was stationed somewhere in the mountains. The cl.u.s.ters of campfire broke up the dim light of night.
Su Youwei stood gracefully on the hill where the camp was set up. Her slim and beautiful figure was even more captivating in the hazy night. Her eyes flickered like stars over the forest shrouded by the dark night.
The leader of her team was a veteran advanced Heavenly Sun expert from the Zixiao Region and the mission of their trip was to capture a low-cla.s.s ancestral qi vein in this mountain range.
Of course, this was only what it appeared on the surface.
Their real goal was to lure w.a.n.g Xuanyang out.
However, they had stayed in the camp for a few days, yet there were no signs of w.a.n.g Xuanyang. He must be secretly checking whether there is any danger. But Zhou Yuan and Dong Ye were both extremely well prepared, so how could w.a.n.g Xuanyang detect their presence?
The two sides were like hunters eyeing on the same prey, except that one of the hunters didn’t know that the prey had already cooperated with the other hunter.
In truth, Su Youwei wasn’t too angry that w.a.n.g Xuanyang was after all because her mind was only focussed on the fact that Zhou Yuan came to protect her the moment he knew someone wanted to harm her.
“His Highness still cares about me…”
Under the dim light of night, the beautiful girl secretly pursed her lips and smiled. Her flirtatious expression mesmerized everyone in the camp, be it male or female.
It was at that moment when Su Youwei suddenly felt an extremely hot gaze that fixated on her in the dark night.
Su Youwei pursed her little red lips, but a chilling murderous intent flashed across the depths of her eyes.
w.a.n.g Xuanyang is indeed here!
As the campfires blazed, Su Youwei suddenly felt that the noisy camp become quieter. She narrowed her beautiful eyes and s.h.i.+fted her gaze to the camp. All figures stood in the same spot and their eyes were clearly open, but there was a dead lifeless look on everyone’s faces.
“Poisoned…” Su Youwei’s face turned icy-cold.
“When did this happen?”
Su Youwei smelled a whiff of a very faint aroma emitted from the burning campfires.
w.a.n.g Xuanyang must have put poison into the campfires without anybody knowing…
The strange scent also penetrated Su Youwei’s nose, and even if she held her breath, it still invaded her body. However, the poisonous gas had no effect on her. Su Youwei circulated her Genesis Qi and completely dissolved the poison.
“Huh? You dissolved my Spirit Confusion Fog? Only extremely high-grade Genesis Qi can do that. And even among the grade 7 Genesis Qi, only very few top Genesis Qi can just about withstand it’s effect. But no one could dispel the poison as fast as you.”
A surprised voice sounded from the darkness.
Su Youwei peered coldly in the direction the voice sounded from and saw a figure slowly emerging. Black-and-white light flowed around his body, making him appear illusionary and difficult to perceive.
But Su Youwei was relieved to see the person. It was w.a.n.g Xuanyang!
If that was the case, then senior sister Dong Ye wouldn’t get mad at His Highness Zhou Yuan.
Su Youwei stared coldly at w.a.n.g Xuanyang, but she didn’t want to say even half a word to him because she found him disgusting.
But w.a.n.g Xuanyang didn’t mind the look of disgust in Su Youwei’s eyes. Instead, he drew in a long whiff, seeming intoxicated by the delicate fragrance coming from Su Youwei’s body.
He smiled. “Miss, the scenery is beautiful and the time is perfect, would you like to spend the night with me—?”
But before Su Youwei said anything, a woman filled with murderous rage blasted through the mountains and forests. At the same time, Genesis Qi acc.u.mulated in s.p.a.ce and transformed into an icy white gla.s.s roaring towards w.a.n.g Xuanyang.
“w.a.n.g Xuanyang, go to your Wanzu Region to find a dog to spend the night with you!”
