Chapter 1056 Muhuang Xiu

Ding Hao’s heart skipped a beat as he decided to wait and see.

The strength of that black figure was not very strong, but it was very light, like an invisible wind. Like a ghost in the moonlight, the figure soon arrived at Surging Waves Mansion. His body movement was extremely special, completely avoiding the monitoring of hundreds of Muhuang family masters around him.

Carefully approaching Ding Hao’s room, he stood at the door and hesitated for a moment. He was about to raise his hand and gently knock on the door, but right at this time-

“The door is unlocked. Come in.”

Ding Hao’s voice sounded in his ears through the Secret voice transmissions.

The man was obviously shocked. He didn’t expect to be discovered by Ding Hao. While he was hesitating, the door in front of him opened a little. Without hesitation, he turned into a blue smoke and entered the room in an instant.

“Who are you? Why were you looking for me?”

A clear, dignified voice rang out in the black-robed man’s ears.

When he looked up, he saw a handsome young man in a cyan shirt standing in front of the desk, whose eyes were shining. As Ding Hao looked at him, his bright eyes were like stars as if they could see through all the secrets of the world.

The man in black looked around and asked in a low voice, “Are you Young Master Ding?”

Ding Hao nodded.

The man in black breathed a sigh of relief, showed an item in his hand, and said, “Then, do you recognize this thing, Young Master Ding?” It was a sleeve, which should have been torn from a certain piece of clothing. Its linen material was not expensive, and it looked ordinary, especially with a black bloodstain on it, which made it look a bit dirty.

However, Ding Hao was shocked in an instant.

Because the sleeve was extremely familiar to him. It was clearly the clothes worn by the old profiteer Tianshu the last time he left, especially because of the plum blossom petal pattern on the cuff. Ding Hao took a closer look and was sure that it was definitely the clothing of the profiteer Tianshu.

“Who are you? Why would Senior Tianshu’s sleeve be in your hands?” Ding Hao had a bad feeling in his heart.

Hearing Ding Hao’s words, the man in black was completely relieved.

He reached out and took off the black scarf on his face, revealing a delicate and beautiful face. It turned out to be a young woman. She bowed and said, “It seems that I’m right. I’m Muhuang Xiu, a disciple of the Muhuang family. Young Master Ding, you’re finally here. If I had come a little later, I would have been transferred out of the island and I wouldn’t have been able to see you. I came here presumptuously because I was entrusted by someone to tell you something very important. Is it convenient for us to talk here?”

Ding Hao flicked his finger.

Two streams of golden and silver light flashed out from his fingertips, turning into inscriptions of some characters around the room, which filled the void like swimming dragons and phoenixes. They completely sealed everything in the room off. Then, he said, “Now you can tell me, did Senior Tianshu ask you to come to me?”

A look of surprise appeared on the delicate face of the young woman in black. She was slightly surprised. “How did you know that? You’re right. Great Martial Uncle Tianshu asked me to wait here for you. He asked me to tell you something.”

“What is it?” Ding Hao asked curiously.

“Stop investigating Ding Ke’er’s matter,” the woman in black, Muhuang Xiu, said word by word.

Ding Hao was shocked and did not speak for quite a while.

His eyebrows were about to knit into a rope.

After a long while, Ding Hao heaved a long sigh, nodded gently, and then thought of something. He asked again, “Where is Senior Tianshu? Why didn’t he tell me that in person?”

A trace of anger and bewilderment appeared on the face of the young woman in black clothes as she said, “I don’t know where he is now. About a year ago, at the celebration ceremony of the Muhuang family, Great Martial Uncle quarreled with the Patriarch and several elders over something, and then they parted unhappily. About a month later, he received a strange letter. After reading it, he hurried out and disappeared. Although he used to leave Heaven Island to travel, whenever he did, he would always leave some arrangements in advance. This time, he left so suddenly and there was no trace of him. We looked for him for a long time, but there was no news of him…”

Hearing this, Ding Hao frowned even harder.

“Then, where did you get this broken sleeve?” Ding Hao asked this crucial question.

The young woman in black said, “About half a year after the disappearance of Great Martial Uncle, a horrible battle broke out in Muhuang City one night. It was definitely a battle between God Realm Masters because the whole city felt the destructive energy fluctuation. Later, it was said that a divine-level sea beast had sneaked into Heaven Island to make trouble and was jointly killed by the Four Great Families. That night, when I returned to my bedroom from the secret chamber of my family, I saw this sleeve on the table and a message left by Great Martial Uncle.”

“What did he say in the message?” Ding Hao’s heart skipped a beat.

Muhuang Xiu said, “Great Martial Uncle asked me not to disclose what I saw that night. I’ll pretend that nothing happened and I’ll just wait on Heaven Island. If one day a foreign young man named Ding Hao comes to Heaven Island, I’ll find a way to inform him to stop investigating Ding Ke’er’s matter. He wants you to leave Heaven Island as soon as possible…”

Ding Hao had realized something.

He had a rough idea in his mind.

Things were developing toward the worst end.

After a pause, Ding Hao asked again, “Ms. Xiu, are you a descendant of Senior Tianshu?”

Muhuang Xiu nodded. She had a slightly ashamed expression as she said, “My grandfather is one of Great Martial Uncle’s personal disciples. However, my natural talent is ordinary, so I was unable to obtain Great Martial Uncle’s personal guidance. I’ve rarely seen him throughout the years, and I don’t understand why he would come to ask for my help…”

“I saw that your body movement was so skilled that you could avoid being monitored by hundreds of masters around. With such strength, how could your talent be bad?” Ding Hao asked calmly.

Muhuang Xiu looked even more ashamed and said, “I’ve had no interest in fighting since I was a child, but I’m particularly interested in the cultivation of body movement. When I was training outside my family’s place, I had a fortuitous encounter and practiced a martial skill called Overwave Surge. When I used it at full strength, I could hide from the perception and vision of experts below the peak of the Saint Realm under the moonlight…”

Ding Hao nodded and said, “I see.”

After a pause, he asked again, “Ms. Xiu, do you know who Ding Ke’er is that Senior Tianshu spoke of? Has such a person ever appeared in the Muhuang family?”

“No, I have never heard of her.” Muhuang Xiu recalled for a moment and gave this extremely certain answer. She said, “Most of the people on Heaven Island are from the Four Great Families. Almost no one has another surname. After I received the message from Great Martial Uncle half a year ago, I paid special attention to the one he mentioned in secret, but I have never heard of Ding Ke’er.”

Ding Hao nodded disappointedly.

“Have you ever heard of Muhuang Tianji?” Ding Hao asked again.

Muhuang Xiu answered quickly this time and said, “Of course, I know her. Great Martial Aunt Tianji was once a famous war goddess in our Muhuang family. She used to travel around the entire Land of Infinity and made a breakthrough in her martial arts. When she was less than 300 years old, she entered the God Realm and set a cultivation record in the Southern Wilderness. Even many outstanding men could not compare with her. Great Martial Aunt Tianji used to be the idol of all the girls in the Muhuang family and even the Four Great Families on Heaven Island. Unfortunately, she began to cultivate in seclusion 10 years ago to break through to a higher realm of martial arts and never showed up again…”

“As expected, Tianji is from the Muhuang family.

“And her status is so prominent.

“It seems that Muhuang Tianji has been brilliant for an era.

“But is it that she entered secluded cultivation ten years ago?

“What a coincidence!”

For God Realm Masters, it was normal for them to have secluded cultivation for more than ten years or longer. However, the intuition developed by the Mind Essential made Ding Hao feel that there must be some unspeakable reasons behind it.

“Tianji brought my sister Ding Ke’er from the Northern Region to the Southern Wilderness, leaving a message that Ke’er was destined to be with her. In theory, it would be Ke’er’s opportunity to join the Heaven Sect. But what happened later?”

Ding Hao felt greatly troubled.

“Well, Young Master Ding, I have told you everything I know. Please don’t mention Ding Ke’er in the city. You should find an excuse to leave Heaven Island as soon as possible. Great Martial Uncle can’t be wrong about this,” Muhuang Xiu advised.

“I have my own plan.” Ding Hao cupped his hands and said, “Thank you for taking the risk to inform me. I can’t thank you enough. This is a small gift for you. Please accept it.”

Muhuang Xiu looked at the divine medicine handed over by Ding Hao and was immediately stunned.

After a long while, the beautiful girl came to her senses, waved her hand in a panic, and said, “No, no, no… It’s too precious. I… I just did what I should do according to Great Martial Uncle’s order. In fact, I should have told you this before you came to the island. Unfortunately… I couldn’t approach you during the day.”

Ding Hao smiled and stuffed the divine medicine into Muhuang Xiu’s hand, saying, “This herb contains fragments of the wind and space element, which can help you improve your body movement. Take it. You’ve done me a great favor.”

Muhuang Xiu was unable to turn him down and accepted the divine medicine happily in the end.

She had been keeping in mind Muhuang Tianshu’s message during these days and treated it as her greatest secret guardian. Tonight, she had indeed taken the risk of being discovered and punished by her family. This required a lot of courage and resolution, but she did not expect such a generous reward.

After answering Ding Hao’s questions, Muhuang Xiu turned around and left.

Her figure flashed in the moonlight as she turned into a faint silver yarn and disappeared into the night. The hundreds of guards around still did not find her. It seemed that this girl really had a special hobby and understanding of body movement.

Ding Hao closed the door and was lost in thought.

The so-called god-level sea beast’s attack on Heaven Island was probably a disguise. Ding Hao was not sure what had happened that night, but he was sure that it definitely had something to do with Muhuang Tianshu. Otherwise, why would he leave a broken sleeve with blood on it?

“I definitely cannot leave Heaven Island like this.”

Ding Hao wanted to stay.

That night, he gave up the idea of being a spy. Instead, he continued to cultivate in his room. It was only near dawn that he returned to his bedroom to hug his beautiful wife and have a good night’s sleep.

When he got up for lunch in the morning, a middle-aged superior who looked like a steward respectfully delivered a gorgeous golden invitation card.

“Hmm? A once-in-a-three-years Genius Gathering of the Heaven Sect? It seems that all the outstanding young talents of the Four Great Families of Heaven Island will attend, and some experienced masters will also show up.” Ding Hao looked at the invitation card, held his chin, and fell into deep thought.
