Chapter 1218: Qiuqiu’s Past II
Apparently, the ancient tree was angered by the huge pot’s provocations.
“Mother!” Fu Chen panicked. The roar of the tree had made him more difficult to breathe. “This tree must have something to do with the boundary!”
Feng Ruqing did not say a single word.
Fu Chen continued, “I can feel that something is manipulating its behavior. Initially, it would have been in a deep sleep when there is no intruder. But now, Little Pot has woken it up, and the only way we can leave this place is by killing the ancient tree.”
Qing Han blinked. “Brother Fu Chen, you do know a lot about it,” she said, gazing up at him with sheer adoration.
Even in such a solemn atmosphere, Fu Chen could still blush at her words.
He raised his little head proudly. “Of course. I was with the Ninth Emperor back then.”
“I was also with the Ninth Emperor, but why didn’t I know about any of this…” Little Qing Han bit her finger, pitifully.
Fu Chen touched her small head. “You just enjoy eating, drinking, and being merry because I’ll settle the rest.”
The demon tree was sleeping just now, but a pot had woken it up. And by the time it woke up, it had to watch these two little kids showing affection to one another.
As one who had been single for years, it really could not stand it. The demon tree became furious and charged toward Fu Chen. Its red eyes were fierce and glowing.
‘Damn! These people are so rude, showing affection in front of a lonely and single tree.’
Feng Ruqing quickly dragged Fu Chen behind her. The tree’s punch landed on her chest, and blood spurted out of her mouth. Her face turned pale, and her body was trembling, but she still managed to hold herself up and stand firmly.
The big tree screamed angrily as countless vines appeared from the ground and rushed toward Feng Ruqing.
Feng Ruqing tightly gripped the longsword. She looked calm, but seeing the strength of her grip on the sword, one could tell how she was feeling now…
Fu Chen’s eyes reddened. Just as he wanted to rush toward Feng Ruqing, the tree vines suddenly appeared from the side and wrapped itself around Fu Chen.
Fu Chen, being a Tier-7, was… defenseless under the tree’s attack.
‘Damn, these people deserve to die!’
They all were becoming so lovey-dovey in front of it! In its life, it hated people who risked their lives for others! These people were trying to annoy the friendless demon tree!
Those tree vines were filled with thorns and became very sharp as they fell into Feng Ruqing.
A white-robed figure passed by and pounced at Feng Ruqing. She pushed her down to the ground and rolled a few times, dodging the spiny vines from the big tree…
Feng Ruqing raised her head in a daze. “Qiuqiu, what are you doing here?”
“I’ve been following you.”
The young girl smiled brightly, and her eyes were as clear as water in which one could see their reflections.
“Do you remember when you were about to leave, and you said that… You’ll definitely come back for me once everything is settled…”
“It was the You family who had taken me away back then. Actually, I understand that the You family was trying to save me and had let me stay in the basement. I held onto the thought that the You family would be back, and I was waiting for them to come back for me.
“However, I’ve been waiting for the You family to come back for ten years, but they didn’t. When I was waiting for you… I thought that if I followed you, I would never be alone again…”
