Liu Jingning was totally shocked.
He destroyed the magic inscriptions for my cage with just one hit! I cannot believe this.
She stared at Xu Que’s palm and asked, “What is that fire?”
Xu Que looked at Liu Jingning and smiled: “I have said already that I do not want to answer any of your questions. Are you going to stay or leave? If you choose to leave, then leave! If you want to stay, then let’s fight!”
“There is no need to be like this. I just want to ask you some questions which concern Jiang Hong Yan’s safety. Are you sure you really don’t want to answer any of them?” Liu Jingning did not want to fight with Xu Que, so she told him that the questions had a lot to do with the Water Empress’ safety.
Hearing this, Xu Que frowned and said, “How?”
Liu Jingning then said, “You do not know who Jiang Hong Yan really is? It seems that she simply regards you as her inferior, not her helper!”
“What do you mean?” Xu Que asked.
“Nothing. Since she has not told you about this, that means she did not want to drag you into this mess. There is also no need for me to ask you!” Liu Jingning was a bit disappointed. She shook her head, about to leave.
“Wait!” Xu Que shouted. “Tell me everything you know.”
Liu Jingning smiled and shook her head. “Although I do not get along with her now, when we were young, we were very good friends to each other. This is her business, and it should be up to her to tell this to others. It is not my place to tell you!”
“I asked you to leave and you did not leave. Now I will not let you go!” Xu Que sneered.
In fact, he already knew that there was something about the Water Empress that he did not know. Since the Ice Queen did not want to tell him, he though that perhaps he should just stop—after all, it was private.
But the Ice Queen had said that this had a lot to do with the Water Empress’ safety, which meant that the Water Empress might have been in danger.
Liu Jingning was angry. She said in a low voice, “Young man! You really want to fight me? You are too full of yourself. If it were not for the powerful backup you have, I would already…”
“Ha, strange how I have no idea what this powerful backup is. I think it is you who are arrogant. Killing you would be a piece of cake for me.”
Xu Que sneered.
In a moment, an eight-star sword appeared in his hand.
Liu Jingning suddenly recalled what Hong Yan had told him.
This young man killed the Old God of Killing and the late Emperor of Fire Country. Abroad, only the Holy Son, or the elite among the holy sons, can be as powerful as he is.
“Maybe I was wrong about the relationship between you and Hong Yan.”
Liu Jingning mocked herself and looked at Xu Que.
“Young man, are you in love with Hong Yan? Is that why you are so concerned about her safety?”
“It’s none of your business!” Xu Que replied.
Hearing this, Liu Jingning laughed. “You aren’t joking. You know, we just regard you as someone who is younger than us. You cannot possibly be in love with her.”
Xu Que waved his wrist and executed The Nine Grids Sword Art of Celestial Thunder. In the blink of an eye, the sword was against Liu Jingning’s neck.
“I do not care how you two see me. Tell me, what happened to Hong Yan? Where is she?”
Liu Jingning was shocked when she saw the sword—she had not even noticed any of this happen.
She sneered. “Young man! Let me tell you, Jiang Hongyan is not someone you can love. First, she is a member of the Jiang family. Second, she is cursed. If you are really in love with her, I suggest you forget her soon.”
Liu Jingning snapped her fingers, and the next minute, a coldness quickly filled Xu Que’s body.
His arm felt numb and there was now a thin layer of ice on his arm. Meanwhile, he felt that his True Core Strength had been blocked somehow…
He sneered and began to activate the Mystical Fires inside him, trying to stop the coldness.
Liu Jingning smiled and snapped her fingers again. The space between them twisted and her body grew transparent. At last, she disappeared.
“Young man. It is not that easy to kill me. Remember Jiang Hong Yan is not in danger now, but she will be in danger soon! I suggest you forget her and never, ever have anything to do with her. Otherwise, no matter how gifted or powerful you are, you will lose your life for her!”
She was clearly using an advanced magic inscription.
He managed to expel the coldness from his body. The ice on his arm fell into pieces.
He could not feel Liu Jingning’s presence anymore. She had run away.
“F*ck! I was tricked!”
When his arm was still frozen, he could have still killed her if he wanted.
Although Liu Jingning was injured, she still managed to run away. How powerful that woman is.
The reason why he had not killed her was because he wanted to know the secret behind Hong Yan. But he had never thought that she would be able to use such an advanced magic inscription.
“Well, I should upgrade my own magic inscriptions now!”
