BBW (Side Story) Chapter 260 : Fu Chengfeng In Trouble

Chu Murong didn't quite believe her words and advised her, "You may have no compassion for Qin Muzhi, but the same cannot be said for Qin Mu'an. Since you used him to test Fu Chengfeng, you should first reveal your intention to him through your words to prevent him from getting too deep into the net, or else he will be so ruthless that he will set his heart on killing Fu Chengfeng."

When Rong Yi heard these words, her eyes showed a complicated look. She bit her lip as she said, "When we meet in battle later, I will let him take a detour once to repay the damage I caused to his feelings by using him to test Fu Chengfeng."

When Chu Murong heard Rong Yi's words, he let out a faint, long sigh as if he was sighing with regret. After a moment of silence, he asked, "Do you really think that Qin Mu'an fell for your beauty trick?"

Rong Yi was startled and asked: "Wasn't he?"

"Whether or not he fell for your beauty trick, I'm afraid only he knows for sure. However, from what I know of Qin Mu'an, he is cool-headed and collected, not a sentimental type of person. You already clarified it, but he still jumped into the pit you dug for him. This reaction from him is too different from his usual style. A person who would do such an unusual thing must have something even more unusual brewing in his heart," Chu Murong pointed out.

Chu Murong's words opened up the muddy darkness of Rong Yi's mind1. When Qin Mu'an walked towards her without hesitation, her heart was actually surprised. She had expected her beauty trick to affect Qin Mu'an's emotional state, but she hadn't thought that the effect would be so great that it would cause him to turn his horse around and lose his head2.

"His purpose is to take me back to Jinling. What else could make him do something that would give me a chance to escape?" Rong Yi was baffled.

Chu Murong also shook his head inexplicably and said, "I can tell that Qin Mu'an has another plan, but I don't know what it is." After a pause, he added, "Maybe he really..." He stopped just as his words began and shook his head slowly, thinking: Yi-er and Qin Mu'an had only been together for a few days. Qin Mu'an could not have been so devoted to Yi-er that he would have betrayed the Kaoshan Wang3 for her.

Chu Murong stopped talking, but Rong Yi would not let him as she continued to ask, ''Maybe he really what?"’

"It's nothing. Just my wild guess." Chu Murong brushed off Rong Yi's follow-up question and then changed the subject, "Now that you already know that Fu Chengfeng's feelings for you have not changed, do you decide to save him?"’

Rong Yi raised an eyebrow and replied, "No."

"Aren't you worried about his safety? Aren't you nervous at all?" Chu Murong couldn't believe that Rong Yi was so carefree and not at all worried about Fu Chengfeng's safety.

Rong Yi asked instead, "Is his life in danger?"

Chu Murong mentally weighed Fu Chengfeng's strength and shook his head. "Probably not."

"Is he in danger of being ****?"📝

"Huh?" Chu Murong flinched for a moment before confirming that he had heard correctly. His meizi5 had indeed used the word '****'. The corners of his mouth twitched violently for a few moments before he said, "Qin Mu'an's cavalry is full of men. He wouldn't have the conditions to be **** even if he wanted to."

Compared to Chu Murong, Rong Yi seemed much more relaxed. She looked impassively at Chu Murong, whose face was covered with black lines, and slowly said, "Since he is not in danger of losing his life or being ****, why should I be nervous and worried about him?"

"......" This girl's hard-heartedness could make one's blood boil. "As long as his life and body are not in danger, you won't save him?" Chu Murong asked.

Rong Yi nodded. "You could say that."

"What if he is tortured?" Chu Murong reminded Rong Yi that there was still a state in this world called 'living a life that was far worse than death'. If Qin Mu'an had been more ruthless, Fu Chengfeng would have been half dead by now.

Upon hearing these words, Rong Yi still didn't take them seriously. With a sly smile curved at the corner of her mouth, she said mysteriously, "Don't worry, he's an M. The more he's tortured, the happier he'll be."

"...... Yi-er, just because you like torturing people, you can't pretend that everyone enjoys being tortured by you to lessen your guilt." Chu Murong said.

"I don't feel guilty, and I don't like torturing people. Besides, I only think that Fu Chengfeng is an M." Rong Yi dismissed Chu Murong's words in one breath.

By this time, they had unconsciously walked to a horse ranch. Chu Murong knew in his heart that Rong Yi wanted to buy a horse, and he happened to need a horse himself, so he stopped bickering with her and followed her forward to pick a horse.

Most of the stables were filled with tall, black horses with reddish-brown hair on top of their heads. They were well-built, heroic in spirit and all good horses for long-distance journeys.

"Our family horses are all sweat-blood horses6 and can travel thousands of miles effortlessly. Whichever one you fancy, you can test-ride it for a few laps, and I'm sure you'll be satisfied." The horse ranch owner followed Rong Yi and Chu Murong step by step, all the while promoting his horses with a big smile.

When Chu Murong heard the words 'sweat-blood horse', his eyes lit up for a moment and then turned into a smile, like when you hear a child bragging. The sweat-blood horses were so precious because they were very hard to find. How could they be sold in bulk in this town? "If you say it's a sweat-blood horse, I'll take a ride on it. If what you say is false, I will hold you responsible." Chu Murong said with a smile.

Even though Chu Murong was smiling, the horse ranch owner couldn't feel any warmth, especially when Chu Murong said, 'I will hold you responsible'. It was like seeing the dignified Son of Heaven. The horse ranch owner had seen countless people. From the moment Rong Yi and Chu Murong walked through the door, he knew they came from extraordinary backgrounds, so he drove all his pages away from there to receive them personally. Sensing the nobility revealed in Chu Murong's indifferent words, he didn't dare to fool the two of them with nonsense and said honestly with some embarrassment: "Gongzi7, I'm serious. In fact, these horses of mine are crossbreeds of sweat-blooded horses and ordinary black horses."

"Where is the sweat-blood horse that was crossed with the dark horse?" It was Rong Yi who asked this question, not Chu Murong.

The horse ranch owner replied, "You two are a step too late. A Gongzi7 has bought that horse."

Chu Murong looked regretful and was about to choose a random hybrid to ride when he heard Rong Yi ask, "What kind of Gongzi7?"

The horse ranch owner replied, "A very handsome and dashing gentleman, but there was something special about him. At a glance, he clearly looked like a chivalrous man who roamed the jianghu8, but he was followed by a mighty cavalry, like a nobleman."

By this time, a faint smile had appeared at the corner of Rong Yi's lips as she asked, "When did this happen?"

The horse ranch owner replied, "About a shichen9 ago."

"Very well." Rong Yi patted the head of the horse closest to her, tossed a bag of silver to the horse ranch owner and said, "This is the one."

Chu Murong also randomly picked a horse after Rong Yi had chosen one.

After the two of them rode out of the city, Chu Murong looked at the empty road ahead, raised his head and shouted happily, "Yi-er, I want to see the Gongzi7 who bought the sweat-blood horse. What about you?"

"I want to see the horse." Rong Yi said with a smile.

That smile betrayed the actual thoughts in Rong Yi's heart. Chu Murong didn't point it out, and with a tug on the horse's bridle, he said, "Let's race to see who gets to Jinling first. If you get there first, I will let you have that horse."

Rong Yi swung her whip defiantly to run neck and neck with him and smilingly said: "Better to change the prize. That horse wasn't yours to begin with, so why are you the one to 'let me have it'?"

"I can snatch it."

"Do you think you can snatch it from him with me around?"

"Didn't you say you wouldn't do anything unless his life and body were in danger?"

"Did I say that?"

"Imperial Sister, be a man of your word."

Rong Yi laughed out loud and said, "Imperial Brother, don't be too serious." With that, she shouted 'drive', lifted the reins and rode off, leaving Chu Murong behind to curse 'scoundrel' after her.

Rong Yi didn't care about him at all because her heart felt extremely good at that moment. A man had passed through the horse ranch for a shichen9; he was handsome, with a chivalrous demeanour, followed by a majestic cavalry. Who else could there be besides Fu Chengfeng? However, although the person who bought the horse was indeed Fu Chengfeng, it was not the happiest or proudest thing for her. What made her happiest and most proud was that the cavalry followed behind Fu Chengfeng. According to the horse ranch owner, Fu Chengfeng clearly led the cavalry when he went to the horse ranch to buy a horse.

In just a few hours, he had gone from prisoner to the one who took the lead. How could she not be proud?

The more Rong Yi thought about it, the happier she became. The rhythm of her whip became even brisker as if the purpose of this journey was not to get rid of the tumour on the land but to go to Jinling for a day out.

At the same time, Fu Chengfeng steered his horse briskly, but not the kind Rong Yi had, but rather——a bleak one, as he was forced to hasten his journey.

Rong Yi thought correctly. The person who had bought the sweat-blood horse and taken the lead over the cavalry at the horse ranch was undoubtedly Fu Chengfeng. Shortly after Chu Murong had rescued Rong Yi, Fu Chengfeng was tied to the horse's back, causing him enough pain from being jolted around. When the cavalry took a break, he took the opportunity to untie himself and use the sixth form of the Duantian Sword, 'Silent World', to seal everyone rigid instantly. The characteristic of 'Silent World' was that it could subdue the enemy immediately. However, since he had just mastered the sixth form, he could not use it freely. As a result, while he inflicted 800 damage on the enemy, he suffered 3,000 damage to himself.

Activating the Terrifying Dragon's Leaf required a certain level of internal strength. The cavalry led by Qin Muan could not perform their martial arts after being rigidly sealed by him, so Fu Chengfeng could temporarily escape. After subduing the cavalry, he originally wanted to run away, but unexpectedly, Qin Mu'an was very stubborn. Qin Mu'an couldn't hurt him, but he wouldn't let him go and followed him like a dog-skin plaster. Due to the backlash from the 'Silent World', his vitality was severely damaged. Since his skill level was less than one level, he could not recover quickly and was unable to deal with Qin Muan's entanglement. Therefore, he was forced to go on the road with them, which led to the scene where he led the cavalry to buy a horse.

But that was not why Fu Chengfeng's pace was so 'brisk' then. The real reason was that shortly after getting the sweat-blood horse, he discovered that Xu Qingshan was chasing him with people from the Tianshan Escort Agency. With his current skill, he was definitely no match for Xu Qingshan and the others. Rather than being captured and sent to Riyue Mansion, he would instead visit Kaoshan Wang3's cell. So he used all his remaining skills to unseal Qin Mu'an and let Qin Mu'an deal with Xu Qingshan and the others in exchange for allowing him to continue riding the sweat-blood horse.

Fu Chengfeng's remaining internal strength could only unseal Qin Mu'an's skill alone. Since Qin Mu'an had been injured by Qinglong earlier, one of his arms was almost useless, so he could only pull out the Terrifying Dragon's Leaf to temporarily bluff Xu Qingshan. After scaring off the people from the Tianshan Dart Bureau, they started spurring their horse at full speed10 down to Jinling, hence the 'brisk' state at this point.

Fu Chengfeng silently regretted in his heart: if I had known this, I would not have taken the risk of using the 'Silent World'. Although his body was no longer suffering, his heart was still full of fear. He always felt that this journey would not be peaceful.

As Fu Chengfeng was thinking about this, he saw a man dressed in form-fitting clothes standing not far before him with a large sword on his back.

Fu Chengfeng recognised him as an old friend at a glance. He couldn't help but sigh deeply. What he had feared finally came true.
