Girl, please take a look at yourself.
Im definitely not going to keep babying you if you keep up this arrogant bs.
Zu An was a man who didnt simp.
“Are you waiting for me to beg you” As if she saw through his intentions, a pondering expression appeared on Yun Jianyues face.
“Nope, not at all.
Thats nonsense.” Zu An refuted three times in a row.
“Of course, if you want to talk nicely, its not like I wont change my mind.”
Yun Jianyue chuckled.
“Sure, Ill just tell those guards that come that youre my accomplice, that you used your identity as a golden token envoy to bring us assassins.
What do you think about that”
Zu An: “......”
Fine, you win!
Helpless to do anything about it, he could only say, “Itll be hard to bring you out of the palace now.
Hide at my place for now and wait out the storm.
Once you recover, well leave then.”
It wasnt very likely for him to bring her out with the same method he used for Qiu Honglei.
Furthermore, the Left and Right Guard Generals, Zhuxie Chixin, the Guerilla Warfare General, and the others were all over the palace searching for her.
A single mishap and hell end up running into them.
Yun Jianyue was also seriously injured right now, so she might not even be able to make it over the palace walls.
Yun Jinayue didnt refuse.
Zu An left to look around.
He saw that there was no one around, so he waved towards her.
Yun Jiayue got up.
Her body suddenly staggered.
She was clearly a bit dizzy.
Zu An frowned.
“Let me help you.”
She knew that there was no way she would let him carry her.
He didnt deliberately make things harder either.
Yun Jianyue nodded and slowly reached over her hand.
Zu An: “......”
She looked like a concubine who was out for a stroll or something, while he was just a lesser eunuch.
Fine, Ill let you have your way out of respect for Honglei.
He reached out his hand and supported her, and then slowly walked towards his own residence.
“You wont come and kill me just because I held your hand in the future, right”
He learned from his past experiences.
There was a heap of trouble after he touched the crown princess.
He didnt want to go through so much effort saving someone only to end up not only without any benefits, but with a ton of trouble instead.
“Why would I kill you” Yun Jianyue gave him a weird look.
“Just because you touched my hand”
It was now Zu Ans turn to be shocked.
“Do men often touch your hands”
Shes already used to it
But when he thought about how she came from the Devil Sect, he felt that this made sense as well.
However, he still felt weird for some reason.
Sigh, the inferiority complexes of men.
Why do we all become idiots when we meet beautiful women
“I do suddenly feel an urge to kill you after hearing what you just said though.” Yun Jianyue harrumphed.
Zu An instead felt happier when he heard this reply. So no one else touched you… Very good, very good.
Yun Jianyue frowned.
“Stop wasting time chatting already.
There are guards looking everywhere right now.
I dont want to run into them.”
Normally, her divine senses could easily stretch across a range of a few dozen li.
Nothing in that area would escape her detection.
Unfortunately, she was seriously injured right now and didnt have this ability anymore.
She was so used to easily sensing her enemies that she felt deaf and blind right now.
This really was unsettling.
Zu An chuckled.
“Dont worry, theres no one around us.”
Yun Jianyue was confused.
She didnt know where his confidence came from.
Could it be that his cultivation already reached a point where his divine senses could extend outwards
But she was impressed by the rest of their journey.
There were several times when Zu An pulled her to the side.
She thought that he wanted to take advantage of her, but she immediately understood when she saw the guards who came right after he pulled her to the side.
This happened several times, and they managed to hide from them each time.
It was as if he already knew their locations ahead of time.
Yun Jianyue finally couldnt hold back her curiosity.
“How are you doing this”
Zu An smiled.
“Thats a secret.”
He obviously couldnt extend his senses, but he used other methods to achieve similar results.
He had the jade badge in his hands, allowing him to control the surrounding small creatures.
The imperial palace was full of greenery.
There were trees, plants, as well as all types of cats, mice, birds, and other creatures.
The guards wouldnt be on guard against them, so how could they know that these little things already became his eyes and ears
By borrowing these small creatures, Zu An was able to detect the guards whereabouts ahead of time.
That was why he was able to calmly bring her to his own residence even with people searching everywhere in the palace.
Yun Jianyue couldnt bring herself to ask more when she saw him put on this mysterious act.
For cultivators, many skills were their life saving measures.
It was indeed not wise to reveal them to outsiders.
She thought to herself that she would find a chance to ask her disciple in the future and see if she knew.
Zu An used his waist token to open up the residences restrictions, and then he invited Yun Jianyue inside.
“This is the golden token envoys residence.
Normally speaking, no one would come in, so you can peacefully nurse yourself here.”
He even deliberately stuck out his chest when he mentioned the golden token.
He wanted to flaunt and impress the other party a bit, yet she didnt show any interest.
“Thanks.” Yun Jianyue looked around.
This place was indeed quite secluded and suitable for her to weather the storm.
Seeing that she didnt play along, Zu Ans interest also waned.
“By the way, how did you end up in the rock garden That place isnt too far from the emperors imperial study.
Werent you scared of being discovered”
Yun Jianyue slowly sat down on a chair.
Even though she was seriously injured, there were no issues that could be picked from her bearing.
Her posture was upright, making her chest rise and waist look thin.
Her body lines looked especially enchanting.
Her lips parted, her gentle voice carrying a bit of coldness.
“The most dangerous place will often be the safest.
It is because it was closest to the imperial study that the guards would subconsciously choose to overlook that area.
That is why I could useMirror Mirage to hide my aura and escape their detection.
She paused for a moment and said, “If the emperor really was in the palace, then I wouldnt have dared to take this risk.”
Zu Ans eyes lit up.
He remembered the task the emperor gave him and quickly asked, “How did you know that the emperor wasnt in the palace”
Yun Jianyue gave him an expressionless look.
She clearly didnt plan to reply to him.
Zu An didnt expect things to change that quickly.
He could only say, “How about I exchange information with you Werent you curious about how I avoided those guards detection”
Yun Jianyue sneered in mockery.
These two pieces of information arent equal.
Of course, I wouldnt tell you even if you had something worth trading.
I will not sell out that person.”
Seeing how firm her expression was, Zu An was a bit disappointed. Seems like I have to look for a different method.
“How did you meet Honglei” Yun Jianyue suddenly gave the Embroidered Envoy before her a curious look.
She understood her own disciple the best.
She looked nice to everyone on the surface, making them feel wonderful, but she was actually an extremely proud and aloof woman who would never accept other men.
She only treated them like a game.
Yet she became friends with this person, and her precious disciple even gave him her Mirror Mirage.
Meanwhile, he was willing to risk nine generations of clan eradication to save her.
Their relationship was definitely close.
Zu Ans first reaction was to use this information for exchange, but he quickly dispelled this thought.
This wasnt something worth hiding, since she would find out once she asked Honglei.
He might as well just tell her to get some brownie points.
Once he got enough of these brownie points, he would make her realize that he wasnt some easy prostitute.
What was the most expensive thing in this world It was often free things that were the most expensive.
“We met in Brightmoon City.”
Yun Jianyue was stirred when she heard his reply.
“Youre Zu An”
Zu An was shocked.
He removed his mask.
“I didnt expect you to know me.”
“Hmph, it would be harder for me to not know you.” Yun Jianyue recalled the intelligence she received earlier.
Qiu Honglei was going to marry into the Chu clan as a concubine! Back then, she thought that the girl was merely finding a way to plot against the Chu clan.
But during Zu Ans journey to the capital, Qiu Honglei showed Zu An mercy several times.
The sects Solitary Eight noted all of these things.
Furthermore, there was this interaction this time.
It would be more strange if there wasnt something going on between them.
Zu An was about to say something when he heard Zhuxie Chixins voice.
“Eleven, are you there”
