795 Mysterious Family

    Seeing that she had stopped, Bai Xiao looked to his left and then right and asked: "What's the matter? Why have you stopped walking?"

    "There is a formation." She glanced around and her eyes landed on the road in front of her: "There is a formation from this point onwards. It is not just any maze formation."

    Her eyes were focused straight ahead as a thought came to her: "Is this family clan really a small one?"

    Bai Xiao saw that she was deep in thought so he hadn't interrupted and looked about their surroundings instead. He wasn't sure if it was an illusion, but he thought he saw someone looking at them from afar. When he looked again, the person had disappeared.

    "Am I seeing things?" He murmured as he rubbed his eyes.

    "Seeing things?" Feng Jiu asked.

    "I thought I saw someone." He replied.

    "A person? Not possible. Besides the two of us, there is not another person's breath nearby." She continued: "There is fog here, maybe you didn't see clearly. Follow me closely and don't get lost in the formation. The maze formation changes."

    "Okay, I understand." He replied and followed closely.

    Because Feng Jiu was familiar with formations, they didn't have any problems when she brought Bai Xiao into the formation with her. However, just as they were about to continue walking forwards, a voice sounded out near them.

    "This is not a place the both of you should have come into."

    Feng Jiu looked back startled and saw a figure looming on the left. The man was wrapped up in his black robe, his eyes were like stagnant water, and made one shiver looking at them.

    "You, are you a human or a ghost?" Bai Xiao was startled and asked in a quivering voice.

    The man's gaze swept past Bai Xiao and landed on Feng Jiu, and he replied: "Go back. This is not a place you should come to."

    His voice was light and floaty, like it was emitting from everywhere. If they hadn't seen him standing there, they would have wondered where the voice was coming from.

    Feng Jiu came out of her reverie and extended her hand to the man: "Senior, we have not come here harbouring ill intentions. We have come to warn you and give you a message."

    The man looked at Feng Jiu quietly and said: "Speak."

    "I wonder if Senior has heard of Tianyuan Palace?" She asked.

    "Yes." The man in black robes nodded but said nothing more.

    Upon seeing this, Feng Jiu proceeded to tell him about how the faction of Tianyuan Palace had intended to take over Centenarian Mountain. Finally, she added: "Because they have a Nascent Soul cultivator among their ranks and several Golden Core cultivators, when I learnt of the news, I came to inform you. If your forces are not strong enough to deal with them, you can retreat."

    "Thank you, you can leave now." After he spoke, the man in black robes hadn't left, but he stood there and stared at the both of them.

    "Farewell." Feng Jiu bowed and dragged Bai Xiao away with her.

    The man in black robes watched as walked into the formation. When their figures disappeared from his view, he finally turned and walked away.

    Feng Jiu who had left with Bai Xiao felt uneasy. She hadn't thought much of it before she came here. But after she met with the man in black robes, she realised that this family clan was not just an ordinary family, nor a small family at all.
