Chapter 820: Magic Show
Lu Shu had always been vigilant.
The controller had wanted Lu Shu to come to the Changbai Mountains. He had even revealed some details about Lu Xiaoyu’s secret, as if they were waiting for him to come.
He was now here. He wanted to see what they were up to.
Lu Shu had always been on the lookout for any special people or incidents. He had tried to find clues about the controller from every incident that happened on the Changbai Mountains.
But at this moment, a beautiful girl had suddenly pulled on Lu Shu’s clothes and wanted Lu Shu to take her away. He carefully observed her. There were only waves of energy from a Class D.
If she did not have anything to block her waves of energy, Lu Shu could kill her in seconds…
But a girl suddenly pulling on his clothes now was very strange. Had his presence in the Changbai Mountains been exposed to the controller? No. Lu Shu did not think that they were infinitely resourceful. Even the Heavenly Network could not recognize their Ninth Heavenly King. How could a stranger be any better? Lu Shu did not believe that there was anyone in this world who was omniscient and omnipotent.
He recalled Chen Zuan and got slightly angry…
Of course, Lu Shu had only started thinking about how long the controller would be able to wait since he arrived at the Changbai Mountains two days ago. He looked down on people who carried out such plans while hiding behind the scenes. He suspected that they were not as strong as he had imagined.
They were like a magician. Everything seemed like an illusion during the performance. But after the secret was revealed, many felt that the performance was just decent.
Some liked to know the secret behind magic tricks as their curiosity spurred them to uncover the truth.
Others just liked to watch the performance. They liked mystery and entertainment in their lives.
As for Lu Shu… he decided to kill the magician…
He had become a participant in this performance without his knowledge. This made Lu Shu rather unhappy.
Are you going to pay me for this?!
When the beautiful lady saw that Lu Shu did not intend to take her away, she said in a pitiful voice, “I am very clean. If you take me away, I’ll be yours. You’ve struck lucky.”
Lu Shu was unhappy. “Who are you talking to? You speak as if I’m not clean.”
“From Cloud Yi’s distress, +199!”
What… Lu Shu felt goosebumps forming.
Cloud Yi? She was a Puppet Master, right? Why were there waves of energy from just a Class D?! Sister, this is cheating!
Lu Shu carefully observed her. From the shape of her face, she was indeed Cloud Yi. But she had become a completely different person with just some makeup. No wonder makeup was called one of the four great methods of witchcraft in Asia! She looked completely different.
But Lu Shu also knew that many other girls could do this. Light makeup, bare faced, heavy makeup, a girl could look like three completely different people…
This meant that she had already known who he was right? Definitely! He was very sure that she recognized him. If not, why would Cloud Yi find him out of the thousands of secret practitioners here? She definitely had an aim in mind.
Cloud Yi was still in character. “Since when did I say that you’re not clean…”
Before she could finish speaking, Lu Shu bowed. “I’m not clean.”
Cloud Yi was speechless.
Lu Shu turned and ran.
But Lu Shu was puzzled. What… all along, he had guessed that the Puppet Masters were behind this. After all, the Puppet Masters were the only ones in the entire realm of cultivation whose origins were unclear. They would be most suitable to carry out schemes behind the scenes, right?
The fact that the Puppet Masters had protected the Kunlun Mountains had confused Lu Shu even more. Were they the rebels in the legends? Were they… Lu Shu had never seen any rebels who protected the world. That would be outrageous.
Lu Shu’s impression of the Puppet Masters now was confusing. But Lu Shu was even more confused… were they here to kill him? If they were the ones behind this, that would be the best opportunity to do so.
To be honest, Lu Shu had only cared about following the crowd to run away from the Tiger Back. He had not noticed Cloud Yi approaching him. If she were to attack then, Lu Shu might have died!
Then, if the Puppet Masters were not behind this, who was?
There was another problem. How mysterious were the Puppet Masters? Why did they want to approach him in this crowd?
But at least, they did not attack him. They did not even seem like a threat to him.
With this encounter, Lu Shu could only hold his doubts as he ran…
After a while, Lu Shu turned around and realized that Cloud Yi was not following him. He could finally be at ease. But the first thing that Lu Shu did was to notify Nie Ting. “The Puppet Masters are here. Be careful.”
Lu Shu did not know why the Puppet Masters took part in this war. He did not know what Cloud Yi was plotting against him. But he felt that he should distance himself from her.
Suddenly, a female practitioner pulled on Lu Shu’s clothes again. “Take me away…”
Before she could finish speaking, Lu Shu ran away. The female practitioner was almost thrown to the ground by the massive inertia.
Cloud Yi silently stood in the battle field and watched as Lu Shu ran. She broke into a smile. She wiped the makeup off her face. Somehow, she had managed to wipe her makeup clean without a trace.
When she was removing her makeup, many secret practitioners who were running away could not help but look at her. Others put on makeup to look pretty, but Cloud Yi put on makeup to conceal her colors.
A robust man walked towards Cloud Yi and laughed. “Did he recognize you?”
“He should know that I’m the Puppet Master. Although I don’t know how he did it.” Cloud Yi’s words were full of information.
Tiger Zhi did not notice. “He has many secrets. Have you forgotten how the old King of Gods was infinitely resourceful? He knew the names of others even before they introduced themselves.”
Cloud Yi did not continue talking about this. She said, “You’re right. He’s… not quite the same as the old king. But for some reason, I like this kind of king more.”
“I see that he bowed to you. Cloud Yi, today might be the peak of your life…” Tiger Zhi laughed.
For some reason, Cloud Yi suddenly laughed silently. This smile made her look very charming. “Looks like the king doesn’t need our protection. Let’s get down to business.”
