Chapter 692: Rainbow Stream
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
At one moment, Chu Liuyue even felt that Tuan Zi had once been here.
However, this thought disappeared in no time.
The first time she met Tuan Zi was in the forest outside Country Yao Chens Imperial City, and this was the Tianling Dynastys Dahuang Swamp.
The two places were thousands of miles apart, and there was a Heavens Canopy in between.
No matter how she thought of it, it was impossible.
Chu Liuyue kept following Tuan Zi, and they continued going forward.
Qiang Wanzhou quickly caught up.
After a while, Mu Hongyu and Ye Ranran came too.
Seeing that everyone was safe, Chu Liuyue felt more at ease.
Tuan Zi had previously left too suddenly, so she didnt even have the time to explain to the rest.
While following Chu Liuyue forward, Mu Hongyu couldnt help but ask, “Liuyue, where are we going now”
The Mystic Forest was eerily silent, and it was even more so the further in they went.
In addition to the earlier frustrated movements of the golden mane bear cub, she felt very uneasy.
Chu Liuyue gently shook her head.
“Tuan Zi suddenly went in this direction.
I also dont know where it wants to go.”
Mu Hongyu looked in front, and expectedly, she saw Tuan Zi waiting for them at the front.
It seemed like it didnt run like this without reason.
“Is Tuan Zi bringing us to some place” asked Mu Hongyu softly.
Chu Liuyue nodded.
“I guess so.”
Even she still wasnt clear about what exactly was going on.
“Ah! Quickly, look!” Ye Ranran—who was following behind—suddenly gasped and couldnt conceal the shock in her voice.
Upon hearing this, Chu Liuyue and the rest immediately turned back to look.
Shock flashed across their faces with this one glance.
They saw that the forest they had left behind was suddenly covered by a sea of black clouds, and it became as dark as ever.
Moreover, the originally lush greenery suddenly all wilted, leaving behind bald and dry outlines.
In that terrifying and oppressing shadow, it was as if a ferocious ghost climbed out from the ground and was showing off wildly, leaving people petrified.
“Wh-what exactly is going on!” stammered Mu Hongyu as she was stunned.
Who wouldve expected that the normal forest would suddenly become like this
“What about those people The people—” Mu Hongyu raised her finger to point at the place that was like a ghost town, and her hands trembled slightly.
There didnt seem to be anyones figures left in that place.
Chu Liuyues eyes narrowed as she stared in front closely.
It seemed like she could vaguely see a thin red mist floating around in that forest.
Ye Ranran—who was the youngest—was also frightened to no end when she saw this scene, and she couldnt help but ask, “I-Is it because we walked too far away that we cant see their figures They should still be there, right”
The few of them did not say a word.
The surroundings fell into eerie silence.
Tears welled up in Ye Ranrans eyes, and they kept moving around as she subconsciously looked at Chu Liuyue.
It seemed as though she was begging for help.
“Liuyue… Liuyue, what exactly is going on” Actually, she also knew how illogical her previous thought was.
They were indeed a distance away, but there were more than thousands of people there.
If they were still around, why would they not be able to see their figures at all
Even though that forest was very dark, they could still see the outlines of the trees and branches upon closer inspection.
Hence, it was impossible that they couldnt see so many people.
The most terrifying thing was that… all those people disappeared, and it was done silently!
If it werent because she looked back unintentionally, they might not even know such a big issue had occurred there.
Chu Liuyue pulled her over and comforted, “Dont worry first.
I think the mist in the Mystic Forest has acted up.
This mist is very poisonous, and it can cause one to hallucinate.
That mist has already spread to our area here, so perhaps what we see isnt the real scene.”
Ye Ranran felt more at ease.
Chu Liuyue gave her an assuring gaze and patiently convinced her.
“Think about it.
The few of us are doing okay, and there are so many of them together.
What can happen to them Lets not talk about the few elders and the many disciples.
Just the Black Guards alone have formidable combat strength.
With Lieutenant Mu leading them, there shouldnt be a problem.”
Hearing this, Ye Ranran felt that it was very reasonable and believed it even more.
Mu Hongyu looked at Chu Liuyue, and worry filled her eyes.
Chu Liuyue silently shook her head.
“No matter what, this place is very dangerous.
We must leave as soon as possible! When were safe, well think of another way to meet those people!”
Ye Ranran believed in Chu Liuyue very much, so when she heard this, she hurriedly nodded in agreement.
With Chu Liuyue around, she always felt that she had a backbone.
What she could do now was try her best not to become their burden.
Looking at Qiang Wanzhou and Mu Hongyu at the side—who seemed to be calmer than herself—Ye Ranran felt guilty and reproached herself.
“Ill listen to you, Liuyue, for everything!”
Chu Liuyue looked up at the end.
The countless wilted trees were like different skeletons yelling at the top of their lungs and moaning painfully.
She hid the emotions in her eyes as she turned around and chased after Tuan Zi.
The few of them traveled very quickly as the wind howled beside their ears.
As Chu Liuyue rapidly ran forward, she kept thinking of what happened earlier.
That red mist that spread all over is humid, but it isnt only that.
She had come to the Mystic Forest before.
Normally speaking, humid mist would only appear in the forest around evening.
But not only was the timing off now, even the color… was not right!
The true humid mist was pale white in color, and it wasnt that different from normal mist.
It wasnt this strange red color.
Moreover, she had never seen the forest present itself in such a manner…
If we were also there earlier… Chu Liuyue looked up and gazed toward Tuan Zi as she knitted her brows slightly.
Did Tuan Zi long know that this would happen… so it purposely brought us away But how did Tuan Zi know It even knew where to escape to.
Chu Liuyue had long known that Tuan Zi was different from ordinary blood ferrets, but it was only until now that she discovered that she seemed to have underestimated it.
Perhaps the previous scene was too impactful, so for a period of time afterward, the few of them kept silent.
Nobody said anything as they silently proceeded forward.
Even if they didnt turn back, they seemed to feel the invisible, harsh, and sinister feeling approaching them.
After some time, Tuan Zi stopped again.
This time, it didnt continue forward.
Chu Liuyue braved herself and directly rushed to Tuan Zis side.
Qiang Wanzhou and the rest hurriedly followed.
After standing still, Chu Liuyue then realized that a small stream was flowing in front of Tuan Zi.
It squatted by the bank—as obedient as ever.
“Tuan Zi.” Chu Liuyue called out to it.
Tuan Zi looked up and jumped onto her shoulders.
Then, it raised its claws and pointed toward the stream.
Chu Liuyue took a closer look, and her gaze focused.
That stream of water was actually glowing in rainbow scales, which looked very magnificent!
