Only then did Huan Qing Yan feel relieved, a Six-Star Spirit Master could escape easily if they intended to do so. Therefore, she immediately dived into the forest while carrying Xing Han in her arms.
Young Xing Han was very sensible, despite the branches scratching him, he did not utter a sound. Huan Qing Yan had discarded her torch and was travelling blindly, she was not aware of the direction she was heading. All she felt was that the vegetation was getting thicker while it felt harder and harder to maintain her speed.
She was also unaware of the young Feather Guard’s current situation.
Only when she heard the growling stomach coming from Xing Han’s stomach did Huan Qing Yan stop herself for a rest while giving him a Spirit Apple to eat.
Their surroundings were calm, only the noises of insects and the occasional beast calls could be heard. Huan Qing Yan also felt fortunate that they did not encounter any snakes while they were travelling, neither were they bitten by any insects, they were somehow saved from the trouble of encountering dangerous wildlife.
A few moments after they stopped, a ghostly voice that felt like it came from hell asked, “Why aren’t you running? If you continue to run, you would have reach the place where this brat escaped…”
The next instant, multiple torches lit up suddenly in front of Huan Qing Yan, men covered in black appeared in front of them.
The way they stared at her was akin to a predator staring at its prey!
Huan Qing Yan wished she could just simply hit her head angrily on the wall and die. What sort of luck was this? She actually ran towards their den!
D*mmit, it was all because of the darkness of this deep mountain forest plus her disease of poor directional sense.
“Boss, Earth Dog and Leopard Lin are currently being held down by that Feather Guard Brat while the rest of us followed this b*tch towards here. I reckon our cave would be discovered by others soon.”
“Feather Guard? They are not easy prey, the few of you should quickly go and support Earth Dog, Plague Chicken, bring this lass and brat back into the cave, we will leave once you are done.” The boss person ordered.
In an instant only two of the men in black remained, they both felt like strong spirit masters as Huan Qing Yan felt a heavy pressure from them. Her instincts were telling her that she could neither win them nor escape from them if she tried to run.
Huan Qing Yan immediately shouted at the top of her voice, “Help! Someone help us! Help!”
Huan Xing Han cried loudly along with Huan Qing Yan’s shouts, he was munching on the apple as he cried.
Their voices resounded throughout the quiet forest.
The boss immediately approached them and pried Huan Xing Han away from Huan Qing Yan’s arms. Huan Qing Yan tried to resist but the boss managed to subdue her with a skill, causing her to be unable to move before he tied the siblings together.
As a finishing touch, he also stuffed a piece of cloth into both of their mouths.
To prevent them from causing any more noises.
“I did not expect a lass like you could find this place so early, what a pleasant surprise! You have also caused us some trouble by bringing along Ji Mo Ya’s underling with you. However, us daddies had never failed in doing the tasks we wanted to do! Lass, the road to heaven was available yet you did not take, the road to hell was blocked yet you still barged in. Hahaha…”
After he finished speaking, the masked boss did not bother to treat Huan Qing Yan like a gentleman, he picked both of them up like a sack of potatoes and dived into the forest.
Aged Consulate. Shortly after total darkness.
Ji Mo Ya had just returned from the palace and had instructed the horse carriage to enter the consulate via the side gate. As the carriage passed by Huan Qing Yan’s accommodations, he noticed that the building was unlit and dark.
‘Went to sleep early? Or at the kitchen to make food?’
Ji Mo Ya looked through the window of the carriage again when it passed by the kitchen, it was also unlit and had no trace of activity.
At that moment, the Captain of the Feather Guards came to him with a report, “Young Master, Lady Huan hasn’t returned to the consulate till now and did not prepare dinner for Young Master tonight.”
