After walking for a distance, Bai Luochu stopped and looked back to see that Pei Rumo’s figure was no longer there. She then took out the map that Qin Feng marked out for her in the morning. If it was really as Qin Feng mentioned and the ruins were located towards the east, it would mean that Pei Rumo was slightly off when carrying out his investigation. If she wanted to use the closest path to reach the ruins that Qin Feng mentioned, she would need to make minor adjustments to her plan.
After taking a closer look at the map, Bai Luochu confirmed the location before heading to the so-called ruins.
The path Bai Luochu took brought her closer to the so-called ruins. However, the closer she got, the stranger the atmosphere became.
There were definitely people with formidable strength present. With her ability, she detected more than one such individual. She didn’t know if they were from the same group or if they were silently following her. Are they here for something or are they looking at me?
Before she could think about it, one of her questions was answered. They were indeed observing her. When she noticed their presence, she was already halfway to the ruins. The further she traveled down the path, the more unbridled the strong presences behaved. It was obvious they didn’t put Bai Luochu in their eyes.
However, no one could blame them as Bai Luochu was really a nobody with weak spirit qi. To them, she was more of an ant-like existence.
Bai Luochu might be releasing her spiritual energy, but she didn’t use it to attack anyone. With her powerful spiritual energy, it wasn’t a surprise that no one detected it.
The corner of Bai Luochu’s mouth curled upwards as she sneered, “It seems like the Desolate Region is more lively than I had imagined.”
Even though there were people staring at her, Bai Luochu didn’t have any intention to stop. After all, she wasn’t going to make a move and she was merely there to conduct some reconnaissance. If she discovered anything new, she would have to discuss it with Pei Rumo before doing anything.
The more she thought, the more she wanted to return to the inn before noon. As such, she didn’t stop to rest and she started to walk even faster.
As Bai Luochu was getting closer to the ruins, those people who were looking at her in the dark no longer held themselves back. They originally tried restraining their presence but they no longer did so. It was obvious that they were trying to scare her off.
Bai Luochu was obviously able to feel their intent and she immediately raised her brows. She felt that they were being too anxious. She only wanted to take a look at the ruins and she wasn’t there to do anything else. According to her, those people hiding in the dark were short-tempered b*stards.
Bai Luochu wasn’t anxious to enter the ruins, after all, her original objective was to confirm its exact location. She didn’t know the exact situation in the ruins and if she were to lose her life immediately after entering, it would be a world-class joke. The losses would greatly outweigh the gains. It would be more appropriate to say that there wouldn’t be any gains at all...
In the end, Bai Luochu disregarded the people who were releasing their spirit qi to pressure her. She simply stood outside the ruins before taking a look at her map. After comparing the location of the campaign and the ruins before her, her expression turned grave.
If the map was drawn correctly, the ruins were located in the central region of the Desolate Region...
Bai Luochu sat on the horse and observed the towering ruins quietly. Her brows were locked tightly together and no one knew what she was thinking about.
After a long time, Bai Luochu turned her horse around and returned to where she came from.
The moment Bai Luochu turned around, she could feel that the people observing her in the dark were stunned. They probably never expected her to give up before entering the ruins.
Seeing that Bai Luochu was no longer going to enter the central region, all of the presence withdrew their spirit qi. All but one. The only person left locked onto Bai Luochu as he tried to follow her back to where she came from.
Of course, Bai Luochu wasn’t stupid. After realizing that someone was following her, she didn’t make her way back to the inn as that would expose her whereabouts. She made her way back to the tea stall before ordering a pot of tea. After tying up the horse, she sat down at a table and waited patiently.
Whatever. I’ll take it as if I’m waiting for Pei Rumo. Bai Luochu thought silently.
The presence didn’t leave as he merely concealed his presence a little better.
It seems like this person isn’t going to give up easily… Bai Luochu’s expression turned grave and she felt a sense of danger.
How many people are eyeing our group?!
Bai Luochu continued to drink pot after pot of tea. So much so that the owner of the tea stall couldn’t take it anymore. She persuaded, “This customer. My tea leaves might be a little inferior, but you cannot just treat it as water and keep pouring it down your stomach, right? You wouldn’t be able to sleep at night.”
Bai Luochu heard the lady boss’ words and placed the cup down on the table. She spoke with a little embarrassment, “Lady boss, your tea leaves are pretty good. However, I’m waiting for someone and failed to realize the amount of tea I drank.”
The lady boss who was always cold and indifferent felt a sudden impulse to tease Bai Luochu, “Tsk tsk tsk. Oh? You must be waiting here for your little lover.”
Bai Luochu suddenly blushed before frantically denying, “No, no, we are merely working partners.”
“Alright… There is no need to be in such a hurry to explain yourself.” The lady boss spoke and refilled her pot of tea. “With my experience, I can see that the young master is definitely interested in you. However, I can’t see through your thoughts and I have no idea if you are interested in him.”
Bai Luochu might not be very clear about Pei Rumo’s intentions, but it was impossible for her not to sense anything. Despite already knowing Pei Rumo’s feelings, she felt a little awkward when someone openly spoke about it.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
