“Don’t be rash, Qingqing. Listen to me—” Old Master Yu’s voice suddenly turned hoarse.
Su Huiqing didn’t let him continue. She just hung up and continued walking up the mountain.
The last time she came to the mountain, it had changed a lot.
She still remembered the last time Qu Yan complained that there were no roads or cable cars here. It was so primitive that it didn’t seem like modern society. This time, a boardwalk was finally built on the mountain. Although there were no cable cars, it was indeed much better than the last time.
Although everything didn’t change much for Su Huiqing.
Green City was much colder than the International Association. The mountain was still covered in a layer of snow that had yet to melt. Su Huiqing tugged at her coat and couldn’t help but shiver.
This time, she finally knew how different she was from usual.
In the past, she would never be afraid of the cold. However, this time, even though she was wearing a large coat, she still felt very cold.
When she reached the peak, she saw a group of young people.
The leader seemed to have also seen Su Huiqing. The youth’s face revealed a pleasantly surprised expression. “Miss Su?”
Su Huiqing stuffed her hands into her furry pockets and squinted at the leader. Only then did she realize that it was someone familiar.
“Gu Sheng?” She was a little hesitant.
At this distance, she could not see his face clearly, but his voice was somewhat familiar.
“It’s me, Miss Su. I didn’t expect you to still remember me!” Gu Sheng’s voice was a little agitated when he heard Su Huiqing’s words.
Su Huiqing pursed her lips and glanced at him before looking at the door behind him. The Gu Family Village had indeed changed. The door must have just been renovated and looked much more luxurious than before.
“Mmm, is your chief around?” Su Huiqing asked.
“Yes.” Gu Sheng hurriedly led the way. He didn’t dare to waste Su Huiqing’s time. “Miss Su, I will bring you over.”
He left with Su Huiqing. There were a few people behind him who didn’t know her. They just asked curiously, “Who is this person? Can she meet the chief just because she wants to?”
When the young man standing beside Gu Sheng earlier heard this, he finally turned his gaze from where Su Huiqing disappeared. Upon hearing this, he said softly, “A very important person.”
“How important is a very important person?”
The young man looked down the mountain. “Without her, we would probably be living dead now. How important do you think it is?”
The person who asked was shocked and looked curiously at the place where Su Huiqing was last seen.
The chief was initially in seclusion. Upon hearing that Su Huiqing was coming, he hurriedly went out to welcome her. He was more respectful than anyone else.
Su Huiqing didn’t say much to him and just said, “Chief Gu, I want to enter your family’s secret grounds.”
The chief was stunned. However, he was not stunned that Su Huiqing wanted to enter their family’s secret grounds. Instead, he was stunned by another reason. “Why are you all going there?”
Su Huiqing tilted her head. “Who else has been here besides me?”
“Master Yu.” The chief smiled. “He came yesterday. He said he wanted to go in and get something, but he hasn’t come out yet.”
Su Huiqing’s heart skipped a beat.
As expected, she didn’t find the wrong place. “I want to go in as soon as possible.”
“Sure. Master Yu went in yesterday. I didn’t know when he would come out so I didn’t seal the secret ground. You can enter anytime,” the chief said.
Su Huiqing nodded. “Let’s go then.”
The chief didn’t ask further and just brought Su Huiqing over.
Before entering, Su Huiqing passed the phone to the chief. “If Gu Li and the rest come, help me pass this phone to him when you see him.”
Chief Gu nodded. “Alright, I will definitely do it.”
Su Huiqing paused for a moment before adding, “Go back now and get the entire family to prepare to move out. Gu Li and the rest will be here in less than half a day. Just leave with him. They know what to do.”
With that, she disappeared into the cave.
Meanwhile, Chief Gu was still standing there, holding the phone that Su Huiqing left for him. Because of her final words, he didn’t recover for a long time.
The sky had already turned light gray, and a large snowflake fell from the sky.
Chief Gu looked at the snowflakes above his head and finally understood.
The long summer was over, and winter was coming.
Chi Yue and the rest were still looking for a place where Su Huiqing might appear, while Qu Yan, Yu Xiangyang, and the rest had already returned to the International Association.
While Chi Yue, Dugu Yusheng, and the rest were still looking for someone; Qu Yan had already received news about Su Huiqing online. She looked at Su Huiqing’s back view and the location of the airport and immediately determined that Su Huiqing was in the Gu Family Village.
However, these three people didn’t act rashly. Instead, they went to look for Chi Yue and told them this news. However, the premise was that Chi Yue wanted to bring them along.
After Chi Yue received their news, he sent someone to the Yu Family and the Dugu Family. He finally confirmed where Su Huiqing might be.
This time, he didn’t stop Gu Li and the rest.
Gu Family Village…
Su Huiqing had never been to the mystic realm before. There were three forks inside. She didn’t know which path was the most accurate.
It was very dark inside, and the temperature was almost the same as outside. The only light source was the lamp in her hand.
Su Huiqing was even clearer about the changes in her body. In the past, no matter how dark it was, it could not block her vision. However, this time, she could only see a meter.
In front of her was a bottomless abyss.
A strange sound of footsteps came from an entrance on the left side of her body. Su Huiqing’s hand paused, and she immediately took out a silver needle from her left hand and threw it over.
The footsteps instantly disappeared.
Su Huiqing moved the lamp over and saw a dried corpse wrapped in a black robe.
She had seen this many times, and it didn’t affect her at all. She just glanced at it and continued walking.
Through the lights, she could clearly feel that the road ahead was getting wider and wider.
In front, there was also a faint light. Su Huiqing knew that she was finally reaching her destination.
The sudden light made Su Huiqing involuntarily narrow her eyes. When she got used to it, she saw a faint figure in front of her.
Just as she looked over, that figure also turned around. “So that person is you.”
Su Huiqing only heard him say that.
