Chapter 1006 Li Mu Arrived
A small ship surrounded by precious energy quickly moved through the Star Rivers.
Little Peach stood at the bow of the ship and looked back at the Bitter Star disappearing in her sight. Her heart was filled with endless sorrow.
She held Ye Sili in her arms, who was still sleeping soundly. She thought helplessly, “Sister, is it worth it for you to do this?”
It was said that that person had gone to the planet of Heavenly Land.
That planet was also one of the few big planets that had not been conquered by the Divine Chaos Dynasty. But if he was there, he should have received the news of the disaster on the Bitter Star. Why hadn’t he shown up yet?
“Li Mu, where on earth are you?
“If you are an immortal destined to appear in my sister’s life, please show up quickly. Do you know it? Your son, your wife, your friends, and your believers are waiting for you to save them.”
Little Peach held the child in her arms and prayed again and again in her heart.
In the lonely and dark void in the distance, light spots flashed.
Then, a few things quickly approached.
Little Peach was shocked. When she took a closer look, she saw dozens of silver flying ships coming at her extremely fast. In the blink of an eye, they were close to her.
“Oh, no! They were battleships from the Divine Chaos Dynasty!”
Little Peach was shocked and cried out in her heart.
She had just escaped from the Bitter Star and broke free from the forces of the Divine Chaos Dynasty with the Junior Chief. She didn’t expect that she would be so unlucky. She had encountered the reinforcements of the Divine Chaos Dynasty. At this time, it was too late for her to turn around and avoid them.
“What should I do?”
Little Peach was extremely anxious.
“The flying shuttle ahead, stop.”
Someone shouted from a silver flying ship. At the same time, several beams of light shot out from a scout big ship on the right front. It was a small flying shuttle, on which stood fully-armed guards. They quickly surrounded the small ship.
“Who are you?”
The leader of the guards sized up Little Peach.
Little Peach pretended to be trembling with fear and said timidly, “I’m a refugee merchant. I have just escaped from the Bitter Star. My child’s father died in the war, leaving only me and my child.”
“Get on the ship and search,” the leader of the guards shouted.
The two guards boarded the boat and searched. Then, they shook their heads at the leader and said, “Your honor, there’s nothing suspicious.”
The leader of the guards nodded and said to Little Peach, “You can go now.”
Little Peach breathed a sigh of relief and thanked him profusely. She was going to start the flying ship and leave.
At this time, the flagship of the silver fleet passed by. Suddenly, a lofty voice came from a high place on the deck, “Wait a minute.”
When the armored guards on the flying shuttle heard the voice, they immediately got down on one knee with great respect and said, “Your honor, Prince.”
“Bring the child over for me to see.” The voice on the flagship came again.
“Okay.” The leader of the armored guards stood up.
Two guards were about to snatch the child from Little Peach’s arms.
Little Peach took a step back like a hen protecting a chick and said, “No. What are you doing? Don’t touch my child. Please don’t take my child away. He’s my lifeblood.”
The two guards continued, but Little Peach dodged them. Therefore, they didn’t grab the child.
The leader of the armored guards looked angry and was about to send more people to deal with her.
“Forget it.” The lofty voice on the deck of the flagship sounded again, saying, “In fact, you are not a refugee merchant. You escaped from the Sword Sect of Mount Shu, and your status should not be low. This child should be the son of Ye Wuhen, the Sword Chief of the Sword Sect of Mount Shu. He is so cute.”
Little Peach’s expression changed drastically. “No. I don’t understand what you mean. I’m a poor refugee merchant. Your honor, you must have mistaken me for someone else.”
“Ha… The son of a small refugee merchant shouldn’t dress like this, nor should he have such a good appearance. He is wearing a robe. Even if a merchant works hard for ten years, he can’t afford it, right?” The lofty voice with faint confidence hit the nail on the head.
Little Peach subconsciously looked at Ye Sili’s clothes.
“I left in a hurry and didn’t have time to change Junior Chief’s clothes. Therefore, we were seen through in an instant.”
“Capture them!” The leader of the armored guards bellowed.
At this time, he came to his senses and broke out in a cold sweat. Just now, he had almost let go of the two important people.
Little Peach was anxious.
If the Junior Chief were to fall into the hands of this group, she would fail to live up to her sister’s expectations. If anything were to happen to the Junior Chief, she wouldn’t be able to atone for her crime even if she died ten thousand times over.
“Hurry up and surrender!”
More than a dozen guards attacked at the same time.
There was no other choice.
Little Peach gritted her teeth. She held Ye Sili sleeping in her left hand. A bright long sword instantly appeared in her right hand. With a flash of sword light, the armored guards who had boarded the ship fell one after another like wheat stalks under the sickle of a farmer.
As the personal guard of Ye Wuhen, the Chieftain of the Sword Sect of Mount Shu, her strength was strong. How could these armored guards resist her?
After succeeding in one move, Little Peach immediately drove the flying ship frantically, trying to escape.
This was the only way she could think of now.
“Do you think you can escape from my place?”
As soon as the voice of the prince on the flagship sounded, an irresistible force gushed out from the flagship and directly imprisoned the small ship on the spot. Even Little Peach was frozen and could not move on the small ship.
“Bring the child to me.”
The prince’s voice rang out.
The leader of the guards boarded the boat to pick up the child.
“No! You can’t touch him.” Little Peach was anxious and shouted, “Well, I admit that he is indeed Sword Chief Ye’s son, but do you know who his father is?”
“Oh? Do you mean the father of this child has a strong background?” The prince, who had always been arrogant and indifferent, said with a hint of curiosity in his voice. “It is said that Ye Wuhen, the most beautiful woman in this Zone, gave birth to a son before marriage, but no one knows who the child’s father is. It has always been a big mystery in this Zone. Do you know it?”
Little Peach said, “His father is Li Mu, the God of Broadswords. If you take this child away, Li Mu will find you.”
Now, Little Peach could only resort to her last means.
Since she could no longer protect the child, she had to expose the child’s family background directly and try her best to make the child more valuable so that he would not be killed by the Divine Chaos Dynasty.
She believed that after the other party learned about the child’s biological father, the Divine Chaos Dynasty would use the child as bait to release the news and lure Li Mu to rescue him.
Little Peach believed that the Divine Chaos Dynasty, which was determined to conquer the Ziwei Star Zone, must have regarded Li Mu as one of the biggest obstacles and tried every means to get rid of him.
After all, in the past few years, Li Mu had become so famous in this Zone that any force that wanted to be the most powerful here could not ignore him.
Therefore, these people couldn’t kill Ye Sili easily.
She didn’t care about if she would die or not.
The leader of the armored guards and the others were all stunned.
They didn’t expect the father of Ye Wuhen’s son to turn out to be Li Mu, the God of Broadswords.
Of course. They had all heard of Li Mu.
In the Ziwei Star Zone, very few warriors didn’t know the famous God of Broadswords.
Li Mu rose too fast, and his achievements were too dazzling. Moreover, he had created an Aspect of Virtue in the Brilliance Immortal Star Region. Later, with his words and deeds in the Ziwei Star Zone, he was regarded as a hero. Both the decent and the evil had a very high evaluation of him. Even though these people were now on the opposite side of Li Mu and worked for the Divine Chaos Dynasty, they still respected him.
Therefore, when the guards heard the news, the way they looked at Ye Sili changed.
“It is so surprising.” The prince on the flagship sounded a little surprised. After a pause, he said to Little Peach, “Then you must be the person Ye Wuhen trusts the most. Otherwise, she couldn’t let you escape with her son. You told me the identity of this child because you want me to hold back from killing him for the time being, don’t you?”
Little Peach didn’t say anything.
“What a smart woman,” the prince said lightly. “But it’s just an illusion. Do you think I will leave this child alive to lure Li Mu to come and save him? Ha… Have you ever thought that as long as I kill this child, Li Mu will also show up? He will be crazier at all costs. It may be better for me.”
Little Peach’s expression changed drastically.
She didn’t think of this.
“Don’t do that,” Little Peach said in a trembling voice. “He’s just a child. He doesn’t know anything.”
“Ha…” The voice of the prince was cold and ruthless. He said without any pity, “If I don’t kill him, he will deal with me after he grows up. I’ll kill this child and let the public know that I have killed him.”
“No.” Little Peach roared, her voice full of despair. “You can’t do this. He’s just a child. He’s still little and doesn’t know anything. Let him go. Let him go and I can do anything for you.”
The armored guards and the others hesitated for a moment.
The prince said coldly, “What are you waiting for? Do you want to disobey my order? Li Mu’s child deserves to die.”
The leader of the guards gritted his teeth and was about to take action himself.
At this moment, a voice sounded.
“My child? What’s going on? When did I have a child?”
A ray of light flashed.
A figure in white suddenly appeared on the small ship and stood beside Little Peach.
The moment that figure appeared, the restrictive power that enveloped the small ship vanished immediately.
Little Peach instantly felt that she could move again.
Her eyes fell on the man who suddenly appeared. After a moment of shock, she rubbed her eyes and immediately became ecstatic. “Your honor Li Mu? Is it you?”
She recognized in disbelief that the man who had suddenly appeared in such a desperate situation was exactly the person that her sister Chieftain had been missing day and night. He was also the biological father of the child in her arms. He was a man respected as a god by countless disciples of the Sword Sect of Mount Shu.
“Did he appear at the right time?”
Little Peach even subconsciously reached out to touch Li Mu for fear that it was a dream.
“Little Peach, what happened?”
At this time, Li Mu was also confused.
He had wanted to go to Earth, but for some reason, he thought of Mount Shu on the way just like the people in the imperial sect who had a sudden impulse. He also thought that there was actually a space-time passage on the Bitter Star that led to Earth. Therefore, he decided to go to Mount Shu and visit his old friends by the way.
He didn’t expect to encounter such a scene on the way.
He didn’t expect he clearly heard his name being mentioned, and he was said to be the biological father of the child. He was surprised and showed up. When he took a closer look, he recognized that the woman on the ship, who had fallen into a desperate situation, was actually the maid of Ye Wuhen.
