At that moment, blood spurted everywhere! The warm and metallic blood landed on her face, causing her to look more miserable!

The instant the arrow pierced her body, Chu Liuyue grabbed the end of the arrow! However, that arrow had already pierced her chest and was only half an inch away from her heart!

The fresh red blood oozed out of her wound!

As she was wearing red clothes, it wasn’t very obvious when the blood flowed out. Additionally, as she kept absorbing the force earlier, it had already left quite a few wounds and bloodstains on her body. Hence, it was even harder to identify the blood in such a situation!

But that extremely brilliant arrow was very conspicuous as it dazzled so brightly that everyone could see it clearly!

“Liuyue!”

“Your Majesty!” When Yuwen Jinghong and the rest saw this scene, they all gasped in unison!

Out of impulse, Mu Hongyu wanted to run over directly, but she was stopped by Jian Fengchi! “What are you doing?”

“Saving Liuyue!” Mu Hongyu was very anxious and forcefully shook his hand off. “Why are you holding me back!? It’s too late if we don’t go now!”

“You’re still injured now. Are you courting death?” The usual flippant smile on Jian Fengchi’s face disappeared and was replaced with cold nonchalance. Given her current state, she won’t be able to help even if she goes over!

Mu Hongyu was so anxious that tears welled up in her eyes. “How do you know I can’t?! I have the Faint Yuan Body! I just need to go over and bring Liuyue back first—”

Jian Fengchi held her hand tightly and locked her beside him. He looked up and met her slightly red almond-like eyes.

His stern words were instantly stuck in his throat. He paused for a moment, and the harsh and cold aura around his body was gradually appeased. “That arrow isn’t enough to take her life.”

“Why do you—”

“If she didn’t want it to, that arrow wouldn’t even have a chance to hit her,” Jian Fengchi rapidly explained, but this instantly stunned Mu Hongyu and the rest.

“You’re saying…” Mu Hongyu suddenly thought of something as she turned around and checked Chu Liuyue’s condition without blinking. “Then… she did it on purpose?”

Because she couldn’t believe it, Mu Hongyu’s voice was extremely light and barely audible. However, she was calmer than before.

Jian Fengchi heaved a sigh of relief in his heart as he looked up, his icy peach blossom eyes conflicted. I’m definitely one of the people who understood Shangguan Yue the most in this world, especially when she is battling… She never suffers a loss for no reason.

Mu Hongyu clenched her teeth and calmed down quite a bit. Jun Jiuqing is extremely strong. If I went alone, it would be very hard to bring Chu Liuyue back safe and sound, let alone when I’m also injured. Now, Liuyue can only depend on herself…

Yuwen Jinghong glanced at Jian Fengchi strangely. Why… was he so nervous about Mu Hongyu just now? He almost never shows such coldness to a woman… At that moment, did he really… panic?

As if sensing his gaze, Jian Fengchi’s expression changed slightly as he glanced at Yuwen Jinghong from the corner of his eyes. His eyes were filled with an unconcealable warning.

Yuwen Jinghong immediately stretched out his hand obediently and zipped his lips up.

Jian Fengchi then retracted his gaze in satisfaction as he loosened his grip on Mu Hongyu’s hand. However, he didn’t completely let go of it and just held it loosely.

“Ancestor?!” When that arrow suddenly flew back, Jun Jiuqing knew that something was amiss and immediately went forward to stop it! It was a pity that he was a step too late.

In the blink of an eye, that arrow had already pierced Chu Liuyue’s chest!

When he saw fresh blood continuously oozing out of her chest, Jun Jiuqing’s eyes were immediately drowned by blood.

He exuded a sinister, bone-chilling coldness—the surrounding air seemed to freeze!

Sinister! Harsh! Wrathful!

However, such emotions only lasted for a moment. This was because he saw Chu Liuyue holding the end of the arrow and burning it with fire.

The fire enveloped that arrow once again, but this time, the fire seemed much stronger than before!

In the blink of an eye, the color on the arrow rapidly faded away!

Jun Jiuqing only heard his ancestor’s hurried and rushed shouts before he fell silent.

As if detecting his gaze, Chu Liuyue looked up. Her lips that were dyed with fresh red blood curled up slightly into a cunning and arrogant smile!

Jun Jiuqing instantly understood, and the blood color in his eyes rapidly faded away like a ripple being quickly appeased.

When he looked again, he was completely calm. It was as if that momentary loss of control was just an illusion.

His expression recovered too quickly, causing nobody to notice the quick change.

“…You did it on purpose?” said Jun Jiuqing gradually.

Even though it was a question, it had an affirmative tone to it.

Chu Liuyue raised her eyebrows and smiled with slightly deeper meaning. “Ah… It seems like my acting skills still aren’t up to par, but it’s enough if I can use them, right?”

She admitted to it! Jun Jiuqing’s expression became cold. When I took action, Chu Liuyue intentionally showed her weakness and attracted the arrow to fly out. She knew that Ancestor had already wanted to kill her and wouldn’t stop trying, so she purposely allowed this to happen. She was waiting for Ancestor’s retaliation!

“There’s no use even if you snatch this holy force. If you can’t remove Ancestor’s consciousness, this holy force will never belong to you!” Jun Jiuqing raised his hand. “Return it to me, and I’ll give you something in return. I can help you—”

“Thank you for your kind intentions, but there’s no need.” Chu Liuyue smiled brightly and directly plucked the arrow out.

Two balls of fire rapidly spread from her palms and enveloped the arrow completely. Then, it flashed and disappeared before the crowd’s eyes!

Jun Jiuqing furrowed his brows tightly, his aura vague. “What are you doing?”

“It’s not what I want to do, but you’re forcing me to do something.” Chu Liuyue talked as she used the surrounding fire to set up a translucent barrier. At the same time, that arrow was rapidly being sucked into the Heavenly Square Cauldron in her dantian.

Detecting the overwhelming and heavy suppression, the Beiming Ancestor finally realized that something was wrong. Hence, the arrow crazily flew around, wanting to escape!

But the Heavenly Square Cauldron could even suppress the legendary three-eyed eagle at its peak back then, let alone this scarce holy force.

No matter how much that arrow struggled within, the Heavenly Square Cauldron wouldn’t budge.

“W-what’s going on?!” The Beiming Ancestor’s voice had a hint of panic. How can a mere stage-six warrior suppress my holy force?!

An idea surfaced in Chu Liuyue’s mind, and the transparent fire started burning crazily!

Short and rushed shouts were heard, but that arrow actually started melting at an observable speed!

“I’ll keep this force!”
