The General's Mansion was located on a mountain peak by the sea. The back door of the backyard was a cliff, and the distance was facing the sea.
When Xiang Nan chased after him, Gao Zhuang's bodyguard had already brought Jiang Xue Lu along the path behind the mountain and hurriedly walked down the mountain.
As Xiang Nan chased after them, he looked at the back of the two of them and thought to himself, this guard had easily cheated Jiang Xuelu of her trust, making her willing to follow him and leave in a hurry.
There seems to be something wrong with the situation.
"No!" On the mountain road, Jiang Xuelu suddenly shouted, "My father is in danger, I can't leave!"
"Miss! The Patriarch has experts protecting him. Don't worry, you should leave with me."
Xiang Nan looked at the two of them and glanced down the road.
"I don't even have a bird." Xiang Nan rubbed his chin and said, "In such a remote area of the back mountain, there is no sound of birds or insects on this lush path."
"I'm afraid there are quite a few people already ambushing there."
"That tall and sturdy guard is at the second level of the Heavenly Yuan Realm, while Jiang Xuelu is powerless. Is he doing this to wait for her or her father?"
"Little Sparrow." Xiang Nan touched the little bird's forehead and said, "Go down the mountain and take a look. As long as you find someone ambushed in the bushes, explode all the way and blow them out."
Upon receiving the order, the little bird immediately turned into a line of fire and rushed down in an instant.
Just as Xue Lu was arguing with Gao Zhuang's guards, a flame suddenly burst out from below. A violent explosion occurred, and black figures ran around in a sorry state from the sea of fire.
"There's an ambush!" Shocked, Jiang Xuelu turned around and was about to run up the mountain.
However, a cold light flashed in the eyes of the tall and sturdy guard. He directly carried Xue Lu up and sprinted down the mountain.
Jiang Xuelu did not panic at all. She nodded silently and said, "Pour."
Looking at the tall and sturdy guard, his body trembled and he fell to the ground.
She lifted Xue Lu's skirt and ran up the mountain. She saw Xiang Nan at a glance.
"It's not safe on the mountain. Follow me." Xiang Nan grabbed Jiang Xue Lu's hand and whistled again.
The little bird turned into a line of fire and flew over, letting Xiang Nan grab its small claws, and then directly flew towards the sea with the two of them.
"Is there a hiding place here?" Xiang Nan hurriedly asked.
Then Jiang Xue Lu immediately took out two pills and said, "This is the Water Avoiding Pill. Follow me into the sea."
"Little Sparrow, move by yourself. Wait for me to come out." Xiang Nan greeted them, and after swallowing the pills, the two of them fell into the sea one after another.
When they landed in the ocean, the effect of the Water-avoiding Pill came into being. A faint layer of fluorescence appeared on the two of them, separating the sea water. It looked like two bubbles.
The two of them quickly sank, sinking for more than a thousand meters before hiding in a gap in a trench.
"I knew he was secretly manipulating me." Jiang Xue revealed a strange calm and said, "He thought he poisoned me, but I didn't notice."
"But in fact, not only did I discover it, I also secretly poisoned him with chronic poison. Today, his fox tail was finally exposed."
Xiang Nan looked at Jiang Xuelu in surprise and thought to himself, "This woman really has some skills."
"Did you knock over the teacup on purpose that day because you saw something?" Xue Lu's eyes shone like stars in the depths of the dark ocean.
Xiang Nan did not comment. He shrugged his shoulders and said, "Stay here for a while. Your father shouldn't be in too much danger."
"Your guards should have already rushed into the banquet hall."
"Let's go out after the outside is calm."
Jiang Xue Lu held her cheeks and looked at Xiang Nan seriously. Her gaze did not dodge, and she felt a little uncomfortable looking at Xiang Nan as a grown man.
"Is there something on my face?" Xiang Nan asked.
"What do you think of the role of Xiang Nan?" Jiang Xue Lu asked.
Xiang Nanqi said, "When has it been? Are you still thinking about the performance?"
Xue Lu waved her hand and said, "We knew this would happen today. The birthday banquet was deliberately staged for them to see. The purpose is to lure them out."
"That's why." Xiang Nan suddenly realized that it was no wonder this General Xue Lu had always been calm.
Then Jiang Xue Lu said, "Did that Xiang Nan really come together with his master in the end?"
"No, Xiang Nan is dead." Xiang Nan shook his head.
Jiang Xuelu said, "Then do you think it would be good or bad for the Iron Blood Heroic Soul to bring Xiang Nan and Xu Caiyue together in the end?"
Xiang Nan said impatiently, "Are you so attentive to such trivial matters? Think of your family's enemies."
Jiang Xue Lu wasn't angry either. She examined Xiang Nan's reaction and said, "You've been observing me these past few days. Isn't it just to get close to me? Now is the best opportunity. Are you planning to keep me silent?"
Xiang Nan was stunned. She didn't expect this woman to be so observant. She actually discovered that she was paying attention to her.
However, what she said was reasonable. Even if she discovered it, so what? He could take advantage of this opportunity to get acquainted with her.
"Do you want to hear the truth or lie?" Xiang Nan said.
"Of course it's the truth," Xue Lu said spiritedly.
Xiang Nan nodded and said, "I don't think this ending is good. They created Xiang Nan to be too perfect and too heroic."
"By doing so, some young people began to worship Xiang Nan blindly, even willing to be Xiang Nan."
"But I think the best outcome should be the opposite. Let Xiang Nan be the last Xiang Nan. Never again will there be someone like him. That's the perfect ending."
"What do you mean?" Jiang Xuelu simply sat in a comfortable position, earnestly wanting to hear Xiang Nan's analysis.
Xiang Nan was really speechless. Was this woman's head broken? Why are you so serious about a show? Can't tell the difference between reality and performance?
Xiang Nan sighed. He laughed self-deprecatingly and said, "Xiang Nan is just a pitiful bug. He is not a hero. He is not willing to be a hero."
"Why?" Xue Lu asked, "Where did the pitiful bug start? I think he is very powerful and enjoys fighting."
Xiang Nan lowered his head and remained silent for a long time.
Then, Jiang Xue Lu lowered her head and tilted her head to look at Xiang Nan's expression.
After a long silence, Xiang Nan said in a deep voice, "Only those who truly love peace and want to enjoy life will fight and fight for the people they care about."
"In my eyes, Xiang Nan never showed any excitement after killing. Every time he killed someone, his mood was very low, even when he killed a villain."
"I don't think he ever expected to kill, but he had no choice. In order to protect what he wanted to protect, he could only throw himself into battle time and time again."
Xiang Nan looked into Jiang Xue Lu's eyes and said, "Do you think the more such a pitiful creature, the better, or the less the better?"
"At the very least, I think the reason Xiang Nan is working so hard is because he doesn't want people like him to appear in the world. His destiny is not as beautiful as it was on the stage."
Jiang Xue Lu stared at Xiang Nan blankly for a long time before she said, "So you have such an idea in your heart. You are a person with a story."
Xiang Nan smiled and said, "I would rather have no stories of my own. I would rather live an ordinary life like any ordinary person in the world."
