Chapter 360: Seeing Off Murong Lanyi (2)
After Gu Bailu left the garden with the Soul Collecting Bracelet, Feng Qingtian said carefully, “Its body will wither away if it stays here.”
Gu Bailu nodded. “I know. Yin Neng… you have to consider setting it free.”
“Unless it’s with me, it’ll be caught by someone else even if it’s released,” said Yin Neng.
“I can rescind the contract, and you can go live your own life with Chen Mu.”
Gu Bailu felt that she could rely on herself now without needing Yin Neng’s help anymore. She didn’t want Chen Mu to die like this.
Yin Neng looked at her in surprise, not expecting her to make such an offer.
She wasn’t very strong yet. If the contract was broken, could she deal with future danger?
“Are you sure that you can manage on your own?” Yin Neng asked uncertainly.
Feng Qingtian wasn’t happy to hear that. He said coldly, “I’ve got her back. Just get out of here.”
Yin Neng was contracted as a beast, but he could also turn into a man. Feng Qingtian had been angry about that for a long time.
“You can’t be with her all the time. What really matters is one’s own strength,” said Yin Neng solemnly.
“I’ll be stronger soon.”
As long as she saw Murong Lanyi off, she would have done enough good deeds for her to level up. Then, she would be completely different.
If she could also get a spirit fruit and develop a spirit root, she would be even stronger.
“Then let’s wait until you’re stronger. Nothing will happen to Chen Mu anytime soon anyway.” Yin Neng quickly made the decision.
Gu Bailu was a little surprised, not expecting Yin Neng to be so… loyal.
She put on the Soul Collecting Bracelet and said to Murong Lanyi, “If my guess is correct, Nan Ningxin will take action today to protect herself.”
Murong Lanyi asked nervously, “Take action against whom?”
“Lady Murong. Considering how smart Lady Murong is, she’s definitely suspicious about Nan Ningxin, and Nan Ningxin has to take action now.”
“What do we do? Even if my grandmother is suspicious of her, she won’t expect her to be so ruthless.”
“You go back to the Murong family house and keep an eye out for any unusual movements from Nan Ningxin.” Gu Bailu freed Murong Lanyi from the Soul Collecting Bracelet.
She had let Nan Ningxin return to the Murong family precisely to force Nan Ningxin to take action.
As long as Nan Ningxin took action, whoever was behind her would show up.
Gu Bailu had been curious about who her enemies were for a very long time.
Murong Lanyi nodded and drifted away.
Feng Qingtian patted her and asked, “Why do you care about the Murong family?”
“Because I don’t want the Murong family to become a second Gu family. Do you want to know my past?” Gu Bailu decided to tell him her history with Nan Ningxin.
He had been too protective of Nan Ningxin before to listen to Gu Bailu, but she was sure that he would listen now.
“Of course. I’m very interested.”
He had been upset that he couldn’t see into her previous lives.
“Nan Ningxin is my nemesis. She killed more than a hundred people in my family, and I was the only lucky survivor…”
Gu Bailu told Feng Qingtian everything, including her foolishness.
She was unwilling to give her heart to Feng Qingtian, but she was sure that Feng Qingtian was someone she could trust, and who wouldn’t hurt her for now.
“The Gu family had the Sky Splitting Mirror?” Feng Qingtian pointed out the key issue.
