But when he thought that he could not simply use his high-level cultivation in this world, and the 20 years old boy in front of him already had a terrifying Soul Splitting stage’s strength. If they were really fighting, he was not necessarily his opponent.
Immortal Xuan Qing’s face suddenly became unsightly. He was really really in a bad mood!
So, hearing Hexi’s words, Immortal Xuan Qing immediately raised his eyebrows and said, “Okay! Good disciple, you want my help, of course, master is willing to help you! But this kid is unpleasing to my eyes. You ask him to stay away from you, then master will help you. How about that?”
Hexi was taken aback, and she couldn’t help smiling. When she turned around and saw Nangong Yu’s gloomy face, she could no longer hold her smile.
At this time, Gu Liufeng had already caught up with Shen Qingchuo.
Shen Qingchuo was standing alone by the lake. She was wiping her tears, and her shoulders were twitched as she cried. The sobbing sound could even soften people’s hearts.
Gu Liufeng only felt that his heart was also aching with the low sobbing sound, but he was more at a loss.
He raised his hand and wanted to pat Shen Qingchuo’s shoulder to comfort her, but he still didn’t have the gut to pat her.
It took him a long while to say in a low voice, “Qingchuo, don’t cry. You won’t look pretty if your eyes get swollen!”
Shen Qingchuo was even sadder hearing that, and she cried even harder. She complained with a grievance in a sobbing tone, “You all are laughing at me behind me anyway; I hate you all!”
Gu Liufeng hurriedly said, “Why would I laugh at you? I didn’t tell you Xi Yue’s identity as a woman at the beginning because it would be harmful to Xi Yue; I didn’t mean to hide from you.”
After hearing Shen Qingchuo’s cry, she choked and wiped her tears again.
But this time she looked at Gu Liufeng with her tearful eyes.
Seeing that she was really so sad, Gu Liufeng felt uncomfortable as if his chest was blocked by something.
He sighed slightly and said, “Do you really like Xi Yue that much?”
Shen Qingchuo was taken aback. She put down the hand covering his face, revealing a small face full of tears and big red eyes.
She flattened her lips and nodded, then she shook her head again. She wiped the tears from her face embarrassedly and said, “Actually, knowing that Xi Yue is a woman, I… I’m not particularly sad. Now I think about it, I think she is amazing! She is obviously a girl like me; she is not older than me and her cultivation is about the same as mine, but she is so amazing. She operates the Shengde Hall, and she can teach the Feng Family bastards a good lesson. I… I really admire her when I think about it!”
Gu Liufeng saw her eyes sparkling when she talked about it; it was full of admiration and excitement as if she had forgotten all the sadness she had just said. He also felt funny for her in his mind.
He took out a clean handkerchief and handed it to Shen Qingchuo, then he said with a soft tone, “Since you are not sad, what do you still cry? Even your little face becomes so dirty.”
Shen Qingchuo took the handkerchief and wiped her face. As soon as the silk handkerchief came close to the end of her nose, she smelled a faint fragrance.
It was like the smell of this person; it was warm and not strong, but it smelled like sunshine.
Shen Qingchuo blushed, put his handkerchief on her face, and said in a low voice, “I just felt too embarrassed. At that time, I was very courteous to Xi Yue in Shengde Hall. You must have seen it. You… do you think I’m stupid?”
