Chapter 1617: She Actually…
“How is she?!” Feng Wu grabbed his collar and stared at him furiously.
The man remained calm in the face of Feng Wu’s agitation and said indifferently, “She committed suicide.”
Feng Wu slapped the man hard in the face.
The man was dumbfounded.
He didn’t expect that the girl would be bold enough to hit him.
Feng Wu’s eyes widened and her face twisted. She looked like she was going to lose control. “I’m going to kill you!”
“She survived.” The man stared at Feng Wu, his face dark.
Only then did Feng Wu slowly calm down, panting for breath.
With a gloomy look in his eyes, the man grabbed Feng Wu’s neck with his right hand. “In choosing your death or hers, she chose to die herself. Although she didn’t die in the end, I still respect the rules of the game, and I won’t kill you.”
With that, the man in black finally let go of Feng Wu.
“Remember it. That girl saved your life.” After another glance at Feng Wu, the man turned to leave.
“Where is she?” Feng Wu yelled after him. “Where are you hiding her? How can I get her back?”
The man waved at Feng Wu and only said one sentence.
That single sentence made Feng Wu freeze on the spot.
By the time she realized it, the man was already gone.
“Xiao Wu! Xiao Wu! Are you alright?”
Feng Xun finally arrived at that moment. When he saw the way Feng Wu stood in bewilderment at the edge of the cliff, he immediately pulled her back and asked anxiously, “Xiao Wu, are you alright? Don’t frighten me!”
Turning around, Feng Wu saw him. Her legs gave way, and she fainted.
“Hey! Xiao Wu! Xiao Wu!” Feng Xun was so scared that his entire face went pale.
Luckily, when he checked her, he saw that she was still breathing. Only then was he relieved.
He then quickly took Feng Wu back to the campsite. As soon as he put her down, Master Chu arrived in a hurry. The old man usually moved at an unhurried pace, but he was running very fast now.
After he checked her pulse —
“How is it? How is Xiao Wu?” Feng Xun was almost in tears.
Master Chu heaved a long sigh. “It’s nothing life-threatening. The girl was under a lot of pressure and her emotions fluctuated so much that she passed out. She’ll be fine after some rest.”
He smiled bitterly. “Come to think of it, the girl has indeed been under a lot of pressure. She had to save Her Majesty on our way here, and since arriving at the Senal Grassland, she was wronged over and over again. She’s barely had a peaceful day. No wonder she feels so much stress.”
“What should we do?” Feng Xun didn’t expect to hear that; he had thought that the girl was as carefree as he was.
Soon, word of Feng Wu passing out got around.
Hearing that, Emperor Wu was surprised. He stared at Master Chu and asked, “I didn’t know that that lively girl could pass out. And it was because of stress? How strange.”
Before he knew it, Master Chu was taking Feng Wu’s side. “Your Majesty, it’s not like that.”
“Really?” Emperor Wu gave Master Chu an amused look.
Master Chu smiled bitterly. “Miss Feng Wu’s best friend was kidnapped, and we don’t know if she’s dead or alive. It’s inevitable that Miss Wu is worried.”
“Are you talking about that Chaoge girl?” Emperor Wu didn’t expect the friendship between the two girls to be so deep.
Master Chu immediately nodded. “Yes, it’s that Chaoge girl. She’s been kidnapped, and we haven’t received any news yet.”
“She fainted because of a mere girl? Isn’t Feng Wu supposed to be able to do everything?” Emperor Wu suddenly realized that —
