Xiang Nan's heart skipped a beat for no reason. He carefully observed.
She noticed that Whampoa Ruyan was alone, clutching her stomach and hurrying along the street, as if she was running away.
Xiang Nan's gaze shifted backwards. Two people in the crowd lowered their hands. Although they looked like they were walking, they were actually walking faster than they were running. They were running in the same direction as Whampoa Ruyan.
"What's going on? Is there anyone else who dares to attack the Whampoa Aristocrat Clan?"
Thinking of this, Xiang Nan immediately put down his glass and jumped out of the window.
He didn't have the means of the middle-aged man, and he couldn't land on the ground in an instant. Instead, he spread out his arms and let himself slowly descend towards the road in front of Whampoa Ruyan in a soaring manner.
After that, Xiang Nan's figure was well protected by the starless night and the pitch-black sky.
A long river runs through Zijing City. Five hundred meters in front of Whampoa Ruyan is a bridge connecting the two ends of the street.
The silent river water hadn't frozen yet. Occasionally, red and green flower boats would slowly sail past, and bursts of laughter and singing could be heard from men and women.
Whampoa Ruyan lowered her head and walked forward quickly. The two people behind her were getting closer and closer to her, and they were about to catch up.
When he arrived near the arch bridge, Xiang Nan suddenly flashed in front of him. He covered Whampoa Ruyan's mouth and pulled her to the other side of the corner.
Whampoa Ruyan's reaction was swift. She held an ice-cold dagger in her hand. The sharp dagger had already pressed against Xiang Nan's stomach for the first time.
After seeing that the person in front of her was Xiang Nan, a trace of surprise flashed in Whampoa Ruyan's eyes. Immediately after, she relaxed and fainted in Xiang Nan's arms.
Xiang Nan supported her with his Dipper Qi, letting her lean against the wall first, and then he suddenly stretched out his hands towards the opposite side.
At the same time, the two pursuers of Whampoa Ruyan also flashed out. Both of them held cold daggers in their hands and stabbed towards Xiang Nan's eyes and throat at the same time.
The two of them had extremely high cultivation bases, and both of them were at the Heaven Scryer Level 1!
Xiang Nan bent his body, his left hand gave one person a close Weituo Palm, while his right hand gave another person a Mo Ke finger against his chest!
One palm and one finger immediately shattered the hearts of the two of them.
Xiang Nan supported the two of them, took out some wine and spilled it on them, then let them sit in the corner, disguised as drunkards who were drunk and asleep.
Then, he supported Whampoa Ruyan and quickly left the scene.
He randomly found a small inn, laid Whampoa Ruyan on her back, and asked the waiter for hot water.
Xiang Nan carefully opened Whampoa Ruyan's clothes and couldn't help but frown.
On Whampoa Ruyan's snow-white lower abdomen, there was a cut across her entire stomach! With a single glance, one could immediately see the internal organs inside.
Xiang Nan had never expected such a serious injury to appear on Whampoa Ruyan.
"Too much blood has been lost." Xiang Nan first cleaned her wounds and then used the Nine Purities Cosmos Skill to treat her injuries.
After a long time, Whampoa Ruyan finally woke up with her lips pale. The first time she woke up, she reached out to touch the pillow, as if she was looking for a weapon.
"You're awake." Xiang Nan walked in with a basin of hot water and smiled.
After seeing Xiang Nan, Whampoa Ruyan's eyes turned red and she leaned against the bed rail and started crying softly.
This scene caught Xiang Nan off guard. He knew that Whampoa Ruyan was a strong woman and had never seen her show such emotions.
"Don't be afraid, don't be afraid. With me here, no one can touch you." Xiang Nan hurriedly sat over and held Whampoa Ruyan in his arms, comforting her softly.
Whampoa Ruyan's small mouth was curled up, as if she had suffered a great grievance.
"I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid." Xiang Nan said softly, patting her back gently.
After a while, Whampoa Ruyan pushed Xiang Nan away embarrassedly. There was a morbid blush on her face.
"I made you laugh." As she wiped away her tears, she whispered, "I've never been like this before. I don't know why I suddenly saw your face just now, but I suddenly feel all sorts of grievances in my heart. It seems like only by your side can I vent this grievance."
"What are you saying? Do you still need to treat us this differently?" Xiang Nan wet the towel and wiped the blood off her hands.
"I let you save me again." Whampoa Ruyan lowered her head and watched Xiang Nan wipe her hands for her. She said softly, "I don't know how much you owe me in your previous life, but I feel a little sorry for letting you save us sisters again and again in this life."
"Who was the one who chased you earlier?" Xiang Nan asked.
Whampoa Ruyan said, "I knew you wouldn't die. After the Battle of Beast Spirit Island, I found Dream butterfly through various relationships. I wanted to ask her for something from your life as a memento."
"But she told me that you ate the Resurrection Pill and that you are still alive."
Xiang Nan nodded. Seeing Whampoa Ruyan deliberately changing the topic, he asked, "Are those two people trying to steal you away or just kill you?"
Whampoa Ruyan said, "Why did you appear in such a place?"
Xiang Nan sighed. He knew that Whampoa Ruyan was unwilling to tell him some secrets. He said, "Do some personal things."
"Don't move. Your injuries haven't fully healed yet. I only healed your wounds, but your body is still very weak."
Xiang Nan brought over another bowl of ginseng soup and said, "Just now, you cooked it while you were unconscious. Drink it and replenish your body."
Whampoa Ruyan held the bowl of medicine in her hands and drank it in small mouthfuls. She narrowed her eyes bitterly after taking a sip.
Xiang Nan rarely saw such a little girl acting like this on her face, so he couldn't help but curl his lips.
"You're still laughing!" Whampoa Ruyan stretched out her hand and hit Xiang Nan, but the wound that had just healed was affected. She let out a loud sigh of pain.
"Tell me, what kind of trouble are you in? Let's see if I can help you." Xiang Nan asked.
Whampoa Ruyan looked at the sky outside and said, "How long have I been unconscious?"
Xiang Nan said, "It's been a day and night. You were attacked last night, and now it's the next night."
Whampoa Ruyan covered her stomach and said, "I want to eat roasted chicken."
Xiang Nan didn't know whether to laugh or cry, "I have it here."
"I won't eat from your storage ring." Whampoa Ruyan pursed her lips and said coquettishly, "I want to eat roasted chicken with lotus leaves from Pine Boulevard."
"Ah, this" Xiang Nan rubbed his nose. "I have to stay and protect you."
"Hurry up and go." Whampoa Ruyan pushed Xiang Nan hard and said, "Hurry up and buy it for me."
Xiang Nan was really helpless. His head was filled with confusion, but Whampoa Ruyan refused to say anything. She could only shake her head and go out to buy roasted chicken for her.
After Xiang Nan left, Whampoa Ruyan sat back down disappointedly. She covered her stomach and muttered to herself, "I don't know how much longer I can live."
"If this is the only time left in my life, I really want to let go of my identity, let go of everything, and leave with Young Master Xiang Nan."
"But I know, I can't let it go …"
A message flew in from the window and landed in Whampoa Ruyan's hand. She opened the message and a deep voice came from inside.
"Ruyan, the Northern Clan already has ulterior motives. We need to retreat from the Northern Domain as soon as possible!"
