Chapter 365: Cutting Off Contact (2)
No matter how much one is disguised, no one can change the nature within them. Just like how Royal Sister was able to disguise as a noble man, warrior, or even an artist, but she never feared! There was no way she could pretend to be afraid!
Plus, the reason why he was ill at ease was because he would have the feeling that he and Royal Sister were connected. Whenever they were together, he could read through her thoughts with just a gaze or action. He knew whether she was happy or not, but right then, he had lost the connection! He couldn’t feel it at all!
This knowledge made him almost insane and he was unable to keep calm!
At this time, he suddenly grabbed a stash of banknotes from his pocket and threw it on the ground!
Countless men subconsciously went to pick it up, but after seeing the banknotes, they were all shocked! They started to gasp and all began to snatch the banknotes!
The scene began chaotic right then! At this time, Luo Qi suddenly pulled out his sword and the chilly light flashed! Then, all the other guards behind Gong Jue also followed suit! They coldly glanced at the group of people kneeling on the ground…
The chilly murderous aura made them stop their actions and they all kneeled there fearfully. They knew in their hearts that the man wasn’t sent by the Bodhisattva, but rather a murderous God!
“Speak! Have you guys seen a young woman back then?”
Young woman? How could there be a young woman in this worn-down temple?
No one said anything and Gong Jue tugged his sleeves, a bit annoyed. At this time, his gaze landed on a skinny boy and Luo Qi rushed over to tug him over, causing the boy to scream in pain.
“Shut up! I’ll cut your tongue off if you make another noise!”
Luo Qi threatened in a low voice, making the boy shut up quickly. His gaze flickered about and he glanced at them in a fearful manner.
Gong Jue pointed at him and said to the group again, “Did anyone of the same height as him, no matter the gender, barge in in the middle of the night?”
At this time, the kindhearted old man secretly glanced up.
When he looked up, he was absolutely dumbstruck!
He was originally sleeping under the tree and he walked in after hearing the movement. Then, all of this happened… It seemed like these people were here to look for someone…
The man they held was skinny and tiny, actually the same height as the strange boy back then. Could they be looking for that little boy?
His shocked expression didn’t escape Gong Jue’s eyes, making Luo Qi toss the man down and drag the old man over.
“Talk! Did you see anyone suspicious?” Luo Qi asked in a cold manner.
The old man seemed to be struggling internally and he was also quite frightened. He was scared that these people were here to carry out a vendetta, so wouldn’t he be putting the boy in danger had he told them?
But glancing at the banknotes…uh, he had never seen that much money in his life! If he had told them, maybe they would give him the banknotes, enough for him to live a life without worry…
Thinking of this, he felt a bit shameful, but then nodded firmly.
Gong Jue’s eyes brightened and he hurried forward.
He had a strong imposing manner around him and the old man was unable to breathe near him.
Yet, Gong Jue didn’t care. He stared at him with a fiery gaze and he tried his best to ask with a calm tone, “Is that person still here?”
He recalled the young lad who felt extremely uncomfortable. Since he was sleeping in the temple, he was definitely still here. Therefore, he nodded.
“He should be.”
“Where?” Gong Jue grabbed him and turned around, letting him look at the people kneeling.
“Everyone raise your heads!”
Everyone trembled at the order and they hurriedly raised their heads.
Gong Jue glanced at them with a complicated gaze and asked the old man eagerly, “Look carefully. Who…is that?”
