Chapter 357: Running With Her In Her Arms


The sharp arrow whizzed past the top of her head.

A strand of jet-black hair was sliced off and pinned by the arrow to a tree in front of her.

At the same time, Chu Jiu had already dashed forward and scooped Lu Liangwei into her arms.

Lu Liangwei knew that it was not the time for her to be distracted, but…

Seeing Chu Jiu carrying her effortlessly, she could not help laughing. “Jiu, you’re so strong!”

Chu Jiu was not in the mood to joke with Lu Liangwei, and she darted into the trees on the other side while carrying her.

At the sight of her anxious face, Lu Liangwei’s smile disappeared. Holding onto Chu Jiu’s shoulders, she looked back, and sure enough, she saw a dozen black-clothed masked assassins chasing after them with sharp blades in their hands.

She patted Chu Jiu’s tense body reassuringly. “Don’t worry, put me down.”

However, Chu Jiu did not dare to relax.

She had been careless just now and almost…

She pursed her lips and did not say anything.

Seeing Chu Jiu like this, Lu Liangwei did not push her any further. She took out a few homemade medicine balls and hurled them to the back with all her might.

In an instant, a cloud of smoke engulfed the forest.

She had added a special coma-inducing medicine in the medicine balls this time, and whoever inhaled it would immediately fall unconscious.

Not sparing a thought for the people behind them, she quickly took out a handkerchief and tied it over Chu Jiu’s nose and mouth.

Chu Jiu was startled.

“The medicine balls I just threw contain coma-inducing medicine. I’m tying this handkerchief to prevent you from inhaling it.” After saying that, she pressed her face into Chu Jiu’s chest to protect herself from inhaling the medicine.

Chu Jiu’s mouth twitched hard at this sight.

However, when she remembered what Zhao Qian had instructed her to do, she continued to hold Lu Liangwei and run like the responsible person she was.

Thump thump!

Several strange sounds came from behind them, followed by shouts, “Oh no, it’s coma-inducing smoke… Cough, I think there’s chili pepper too. Everyone, cover your noses and mouths, don’t inhale the smoke…”

There was no more sound after that. The speaker had clearly fallen victim to the medicine.

Chu Jiu continued to run with Lu Liangwei in her arms. When there was no more sound behind them, she finally stopped and looked back, only to see an empty forest. The assassins were nowhere to be seen.

Chu Jiu was puzzled.

Lu Liangwei patted her arm. “Jiu, you can let me down now.”

Only then did Chu Jiu put her down. She thought for a while and asked, “Were those assassins stunned by the medicine balls you cast?”

Lu Liangwei nodded. “Yes, only stunned, but they won’t be waking up for quite a while after falling victim to my homemade coma-inducing medicine. Let’s sit down and rest for a bit.”

When Chu Jiu heard this, a murderous glint appeared in her eyes, and she tore off the handkerchief on her face. “I’ll go back and finish them off first.”

Lu Liangwei sat down on a rock and looked at her with her chin resting on her hands. Chu Jiu was pretty cool when she was like this.

Although she had delicate features, she was really cool in menswear, and with that icy expression, just that her complexion was a little dark at the moment.

She could not help but wonder what kind of man would be able to win over such a cold girl.

Chu Jiu finally noticed her stare, and her grim expression shattered. She asked in confusion, “Why are you staring at me?”

“Chu Jiu, I admire you very much,” Lu Liangwei said frankly. She did not feel that there was anything wrong with saying this. They were both girls, anyway.

A blush suddenly appeared on Chu Jiu’s cheeks, and she turned her face away a little uncomfortably.

Lu Liangwei noted her reaction, and seeing that she was so easily flustered, she stopped teasing her and stood up from the ground. “Let’s go and finish them off. But before that, we need to ask where they came from and who sent them.”
