When Beauty Meets Beasts - Chapter 659
659 Please Let Me Go!
Xing Chen was wearing a black robe. He raised his hand to pull back the hood. His grayish-white curly hair was a little messy and fluffy. There was no color on his pale, almost sickly face.
He looked at Lin Huanhuan, who was so close to him, and curled his bright red lips. “Do you remember your previous promise?”
For a moment, Huanhuan did not react to what he was asking.
Xing Chen approached her. “From the looks of it, you’ve forgotten your promise.”
Huanhuan quickly shrank back. “What do you want?”
“You promised me before that you’d come with me if I saved you. It’s time you kept that promise.”
After his reminder, Huanhuan remembered that she was kidnapped by Cynthia on Elven Divine Mountain previously. That was when she asked Xing Chen to save her life.
The price she promised him back then was to go with him.
Huanhuan swallowed involuntarily. She was doomed. The creditor had come looking for her.
Xing Chen reached out and grabbed her slender neck. His cold fingertips brushed past her skin. “Will you come with me obediently, or do you want me to knock you out and take you away?” he said softly.
“Can I choose neither?”
Huanhuan was about to cry. “I was wrong! Please let me go!”
“Do you think I’ll let you go?”
Huanhuan knew that it was impossible, but she still said firmly, “I believe you’re a good person. You definitely can’t bear to see such a beautiful girl locked up in the Sea of Illusions. You’ll definitely let me go!”
“…We’re not going to the Sea of Illusions.”
Xing Chen looked at her stunned expression and couldn’t help but lower his head to kiss her on the mouth. “We’re not going to the Sea of Illusions. We’re going straight back to the abyss.”
Huanhuan was so frightened that she almost fainted.
Damn, the demon king had just kissed her!
She felt like she was about to die from poison!
“Let’s go. After we return to the abyss, you won’t be able to leave me again.”
Huanhuan couldn’t take it anymore. As she pushed Xing Chen out, she shouted in horror, “Help! This guy is snatching a good woman!”
Although the current situation was not right, Little Brat couldn’t help but complain.
“Didn’t you just say that you were a beautiful girl? How did you become a good woman in the blink of an eye?”
Huanhuan shouted, “As long as you save me, you have the final say, Daddy!”
The lotus and Little Green rushed out, wanting to protect Huanhuan. Unfortunately, they were no match for Xing Chen. Xing Chen gripped them in his hand, and they could not move.
Xing Chen hated anything that blocked him from being with Huanhuan.
He mercilessly broke the skullcap and Little Green, throwing them to the ground. He reached out and hugged Huanhuan, preparing to leave.
Huanhuan hugged the foot of the bed with her hands and feet, refusing to let go.
“I’m not leaving! I don’t want to go to the abyss with you. Let go of me!”
Xue Ling came to look for Huanhuan with a wooden bucket filled with hot water. As soon as he reached the door, he heard Huanhuan’s heart-wrenching cries. His expression immediately changed, and he kicked open the door!
The door slammed into the wall and broke with a crack.
Huanhuan heard the sound and immediately looked at the door. When she saw that it was Xue Ling, she was so excited that tears almost fell. “Xue Ling, save me!”
Xing Chen grabbed the back of her neck and lifted her like she was a chick.
“Lin Huanhuan, you promised to come with me. Are you going to break your promise?”
This position made Huanhuan very uncomfortable, and it was difficult for her to breathe.
Her cheeks flushed as she said with difficulty, “It’s impossible for anything to happen between us. You’d better give up.”
These words seemed to have hit Xing Chen’s sore spot. His expression immediately turned extremely ugly.
“Little liar, you want to kick me away after using me. I won’t let that happen.”
As they spoke, Xue Ling put down the hot water and rushed over.
He reached for Huanhuan.
Dozens of black vines extended from Xing Chen’s sleeve and stabbed at Xue Ling!
Xue Ling raised his hand and threw out a ball of flames.
The vines were burning. They waved and twisted crazily. Sparks fell to the ground and instantly burned the wooden floor.
Huanhuan was shocked. “F*ck, there’s a fire! Put it out!”
Most of the ship was made of wood. If this fire spread, the entire ship would be burned to ashes!
Xue Ling had no choice but to stop attacking and avoid the vines. He spread his wings to extinguish the flames on the floor.
While he was distracted, Xing Chen rushed out of the cabin with Huanhuan.
Bai Di, Shuang Yun, and Yun Hui had already rushed over after hearing the news.
The three of them surrounded Xing Chen.
Xing Chen could not shake them off. By the time Xue Ling finished extinguishing the fire and rushed out to join the battle, Xing Chen was completely at a disadvantage. He could only watch as Huanhuan was snatched away. He was helpless.
Huanhuan was in Bai Di’s arms. She was sweating from fear.
She saw Xing Chen shake off the men’s pursuit and jump into the sea.
Before leaving, he took a last look at Huanhuan.
She saw his lips move.
He didn’t make a sound, but she understood what he was saying.
‘You’ll regret it.’
Soon, Xing Chen’s figure completely disappeared into the vast sea. The tree people who had been hiding in the cabins and did not dare to come out now walked to the deck. They discussed animatedly, very curious about Xing Chen’s appearance and background.
Bai Di carried Huanhuan back to the room.
As soon as she sat on the bed, Shuang Yun, Xue Ling, and Yun Hui followed her in. Even Eggy crawled out of a corner.
When Eggy learned that her mother had just been in danger, she took the initiative to crawl into Huanhuan’s arms. She chirped, trying to comfort her mother.
Huanhuan touched her feathery daughter.
Xue Ling bent down and picked up the lotus and Little Green from the floor. He handed them to Huanhuan. Huanhuan bit her finger and dripped her blood on them.
Their bodies quickly recovered.
Huanhuan touched them. “Don’t act rashly if you encounter Xing Chen again.”
They were no match for Xing Chen. They would definitely suffer if they fought him head-on.
The skullcap and Little Green were a little indignant, but they still nodded obediently.
Shuang Yun looked at the dark patch on the floor where it had just been burned. He wiped the floor with a wet rag and nailed two planks to the burned spot so that Huanhuan wouldn’t step on that area and fall.
As he was doing this, he heard Xue Ling ask, “Why did Xing Chen suddenly appear on the ship?”
Bai Di thought for a moment. “Maybe he deliberately hid his identity and got on the ship with the tree people without us knowing.”
“That’s a possibility…”
With Xing Chen’s ability, it was too easy for him to hide his identity without being discovered.
Bai Di stroked Huanhuan’s head. “He’s gone. You’re safe now. You don’t have to be afraid anymore.”
Huanhuan still felt very uneasy.
Xing Chen’s words before he left were clearly a warning to her.
He was angry.
He would make her pay for breaking her promise.
