Chu Liuyue found it weird. “Senior Yi Zhao… should be here soon, right?”
“Have you sent him news?” Miao Zhen asked.
Chu Liuyue nodded her head in confusion. “Of course. I sent your message at the same time.”
Peach Blossom Dock was relatively far from Godly Phoenix Mountain and Godly Dragon Island, but this wasn't a problem for Yi Zhao and Miao Zhen. With their speed, they could arrive in less than a day.
However, Miao Zhen came faster than expected.
As for Yi Zhao… A moment or two later didn't seem to matter.
Why does Miao Zhen look a little worried?
“Senior Yi Zhao followed me back to Peach Blossom Dock previously. He just left not long ago. I reckon he'll come a little later this time, right?”
Miao Zhen gradually frowned. “No, he knows the seriousness of this matter. Logically speaking, he should have arrived before me. Why isn't he here yet?”
He looked outside, but there was no movement.
Chu Liuyue gradually felt a trace of uneasiness. Miao Zhen is straightforward. If he hasn't really encountered any trouble, he won't have reacted like this. And his worries about Yi Zhao now don't seem to be without reason.
“He might be able to arrive in a while,” Chu Liuyue said. “Senior Miao Zhen, you said just now that we shouldn't be too anxious about going to the Fantasy Divine Palace because the ancestor of the great phoenix dragon race died there?”
Miao Zhen nodded and shook his head. “Yes, but not entirely. There are some things that I can't explain to you clearly now. You'll know when you hear about it when Yi Zhao is here.”
At this moment, Cen Yi suddenly came in from outside in a hurry.
Chu Liuyue's heart skipped a beat when she saw his unusual expression.
“Master, something happened to the Flying Star Sect.” Cen Yi walked in and handed her a black feather with both hands.
Chu Liuyue immediately stood up and walked over. She held the black feather in her hand, which was still stained with blood.
Chu Liuyue was very familiar with the aura on it.
“This is the feather of the legendary three-eyed eagle that Shi Rui'er contracted.” She frowned.
Cen Yi explained, “Someone sent this feather over just now, but before I could ask, that person had already died. I recognize him. That person is one of the elders who accompanied Shi Rui'er to the Red Moon Desert previously.”
Chu Liuyue immediately asked, “Where is he?”
Cen Yi shook his head. “He was poisoned. Half an hour after he died, he turned into a pool of blood.”
What a ruthless method!
“Xiao Ba has already gone over, but it's unknown if she can find out.”
“Did that person leave any words?”
“No. When he came, he was already mute.”
Chu Liuyue's heart trembled. What kind of person would do such a thing to the disciples of the Flying Star Sect? Furthermore, this method is really powerful!
No matter what, the Flying Star Sect was a first-rate family in the God Residence Realm. Furthermore, according to Chu Liuyue's understanding, they didn't have a deep hatred for anyone. Logically speaking, it was impossible for them to attract such a disaster.
Those who went to the Red Moon Desert with Shi Rui'er that time were basically all legendary warriors. What kind of force could force them to such a sorry state?
Chu Liuyue put away the feather. “To Xiao Ba.”
As soon as she took a half-step, she turned to look at Miao Zhen hesitantly.
Miao Zhen immediately said, “I'll go with you.”
Chu Liuyue and the rest quickly arrived at the city gate.
At this moment, Xiao Ba was standing there with her arms crossed, carefully staring at a pool of dark-red blood on the ground.
“Xiao Ba.” Chu Liuyue quickly went forward.
When Xiao Ba heard the voice, she looked up. However, there was a trace of worry on her beautiful face.
Chu Liuyue walked closer and looked at the ground.
The pool of blood had already dried up, leaving only a dark-red blood stain and a faint fishy smell.
“Did you see something?”
Xiao Ba shook her head in defeat. “No.”
She was usually the best at fiddling with these things. She had seen countless strange poisons, but this time, she really couldn't recognize it.
Chu Liuyue bent down to take a look.
This smell… is a little familiar. It seems as if I have smelled it somewhere before, but I can't remember where. Chu Liuyue knitted her brows slightly.
At Yue Manor.
Tuan Zi was still asleep on the bed.
Zi Chen had already woken up early in the morning. Seeing that Tuan Zi was restlessly pushing the blanket away, he stood up and walked over.
As soon as he tucked her in, Tuan Zi rolled over and kicked it away.
She almost kicked Zi Chen in the face.
His face darkened as he grabbed her fair feet and stuffed them under the blanket. However, Tuan Zi started to struggle uneasily again.
Zi Chen was about to speak when he suddenly saw Tuan Zi frowning slightly. There seemed to be tears in the corners of her eyes, and there was panic and uneasiness in her eyes.
Is she having a nightmare?
He paused and gently patted Tuan Zi's face. “Tuan Zi, wake up. Tuan Zi?”
Tuan Zi seemed to have fallen into a deep nightmare and subconsciously hugged his hand tightly. Tears kept rolling down from the corners of her eyes.
Sparkling tears landed on the pillow and quickly soaked it.
Zi Chen frowned and felt a little worried. He helped her wipe her tears.
Tuan Zi suddenly woke up. “Clan Leader Grandpa!”
She sat up abruptly and looked at Zi Chen, her eyes filled with panic. “Zi Chen, not good! Something happened to Clan Leader Grandpa!”
Zi Chen picked her up and patted her back. “No, you had a nightmare.”
Tuan Zi shook her head. “No! It's true! It's true!”
