Chen Fan adjusted his facial expression, then stretched out his hand and knocked on the door a few times.
A woman's voice sounded in the room, a little wary.
Chen Fan nodded secretly in his heart, it is always good to be more vigilant. Although Anshan City seems to be calm at the moment, there is a mixed bag of fish and dragons, and there may be some people with bad intentions.
When the beast tide breaks out soon, these people will most likely be ready to take action.
“Mom, it’s me.”
He said softly.
A voice of surprise echoed in the room.
“It’s my brother. Is my brother back?”
At the same time, another voice of joy sounded.
“It’s me, Mom.”
Chen Fan responded.
Soon, there was a sound of rapid footsteps coming from far and near. There was a click, the door opened, and two figures appeared in front of them.
Chen Chen exclaimed, and then suddenly threw himself into Chen Fan's arms.
“How old a man is, but still like this.”
Chen Fan didn't know whether to laugh or cry, and patted his back gently.
“Xiaofan, you are back.”
Yin Fang’s eyes were filled with tears.
From the afternoon until now, she has been worried about Chen Fan's safety.
I just heard from my husband that Chen Fan is very busy now and has a lot of things to do, so I refrained from contacting him.
"Yes," Chen Fan also noticed her inner uneasiness. He glanced outside and said softly, "Let's talk about it after we enter the room."
Yin Fang nodded repeatedly, walked inside, then turned around and asked, "Have you eaten? If not, I'll cook it for you? It won't take long."
“I’ve eaten, Mom.”
A warm current flowed through Chen Fan's body.
The saying that home is a haven from the wind is indeed true.
"Have you eaten?" Yin Fang showed a look of disappointment on her face, and then said: "Then you are thirsty, I will give you a glass of water."
Chen Fan hesitated for a moment and nodded.
Yin Fang immediately smiled.
Chen Chen spoke out: "You came back a little late. Dad, Uncle Zhang and the others were all here just now. Many people were discussing the beast tide together."
Chen Fan pretended not to know: "Then what? Why didn't I see anyone? Where's dad? Where did he go?"
"They are all gone. Dad, Uncle Zhang and the others should have gone out to chat, but they will be back in a while. Brother, why don't you leave tonight?" Chen Chen's eyes were filled with anticipation.
Although today’s life is much better than in the past.
At the very least, you won’t fall asleep hungry every day, nor will you wake up hungry every night. You can only drink some water to satisfy your hunger.
But he still misses the days in Chenjiazhai, when the two brothers slept on the same bed and talked about everything.
“Well, I’m not leaving tonight.”
Chen Fan smiled.
Chen Chen's eyes narrowed with laughter, "Brother, I just have some doubts about boxing skills and I want to ask you for advice."
"Okay, if you have any questions later, just ask me." Chen Fan touched his head.
“Brother, can you stop touching my head all the time? I won’t grow taller.” Chen Chen took away Chen Fan’s hand and protested.
At this time, Yin Fang also came over with two glasses of boiled water.
“It’s all warm water, you can drink it right away.”
She gently placed the two glasses of water on the table and said with a smile.
Chen Fan took a couple of sips from the cup, slowly put it down, and said, "Mom, in addition to seeing you when I come back this time, I also have something I want to tell you."
“You say it.” Yin Fang nodded.
"I told you about the beast tide before. Now, a notice has been issued in the city. It is 80% certain that it will happen, but you don't have to worry too much."
He said: "I will try my best to ensure that Anshan City is not breached, but if that day comes, I will also take you out of here and go to a safe place."
Hearing this, the two people in the room looked at each other and relaxed a little.
“That’s what I said, but Xiaofan, you still have to be more careful.”
Yin Fang glanced outside the door and said: "In addition, if possible, you should try to take care of your father and the others as much as possible. I just heard them say that they are going to join the guards in the city tomorrow morning and go to the city wall to stop the murderers. Beast, to be honest, I don’t want him to go, but everyone else is going and your dad won’t go, so that’s..."
“Well, don’t worry, Mom, nothing dangerous will happen.”
Chen Fan said seriously.
“Well, Mom believes in you.”
Yin Fang nodded repeatedly.
Late at night, the waning moon hangs high.
Jiangnan City is still brightly lit and bustling with lively scenes. Bars, restaurants, and KTVs are overcrowded, and the streets are busy with traffic. There is no tense atmosphere at all.
Even in small cities, many people have heard the news, let alone Jiangnan City.
Many people have actually heard about the outbreak of the beast tide, and also know that the scale this time is far greater than before.
But they are in a big city after all, so they feel relatively relaxed. Even if the beast tide does arrive at the city, there is no need to worry too much because the guards in the city are so strong.
Thinking of what people in small cities will face soon, most people feel a little proud.
The headquarters of the Martial Arts Association.
The sound of footsteps was particularly loud in the silent corridor.
The owner of the footsteps is a sturdy man with a resolute face and a glint in his eyes.
This person is none other than Shi Tao, the president of the Jiangnan District Martial Arts Association.
He walked forward and finally came to a secret room. He stretched out his hand and knocked on the stone door three times.
After the third knock, the stone door suddenly opened to both sides, revealing the scene in the stone chamber.
This seems to be a place where books are placed. At a glance, there are bookshelves as tall as one person, filled with all kinds of books, many of which are made of bamboo tubes.
An old man with white beard and hair was holding a book, lying on a recliner, reading with gusto.
Seeing him coming, he put down the book in his hand and said with a smile: "Shi Tao, you're here."
“I’ve met Mr. Wang.”
Shi Tao bowed and saluted.
Lao Wang nodded, put the book aside and said, "Looking at your expression, it's a little different from before. Why, did something happen?"
Shi Tao sighed and said, "The tide of beasts has broken out."
“There is a tide of beasts.” The smile on Mr. Wang’s face also froze.
“If it were the previous beast tides, it would be okay, but the scale this time is far greater than before. It is very likely that this will be the final battle between our Yan Kingdom and the ferocious beasts.”
“This day has come.”
Lao Wang sighed softly.
He seemed to have seen a scene of mountains of bones and rivers of blood.
Shi Tao also had a look of regret on his face, "I thought that if you gave me a little more time, I would be able to break through to the middle stage of the Heavenly Realm, and be more confident in fighting ferocious beasts, and even reach the late stage of the Heavenly Realm, even with the Beast King. A super ferocious beast can still fight, but it's a pity..."
When Mr. Wang heard this, he didn't know what to say for a moment.
The great calamity of heaven and earth is both a disaster and an opportunity.
Having passed it, with Shi Tao's talent, let alone the late stage of the Heavenly and Human Realm, even the Divine Refining Realm above the Heavenly and Human Realm has a chance to touch it.
But if you can't survive it, you will have to stop at the early stage of the heaven-human realm.
“Don’t put too much pressure on yourself.”
He comforted: "You are not the only one in the Yan Kingdom. Those beast king-level ferocious beasts will naturally be stopped by the three S-level awakeners. If it is really a matter of life and death, those aristocratic families will not stand idly by. of."
Shi Tao smiled bitterly upon hearing this.
If they wanted to take action, they would have done so ten years ago.
However, those aristocratic families all have their own paradises.
If the Yan Kingdom really comes to an end, the worst they can do is take the elites of their families and hide in the Paradise of Cave Heaven. No matter how powerful the ferocious beasts are, they won't be able to get in.
With such a retreat, how could those old guys in the Heavenly Realm take action? Who doesn't cherish their own life? The longer people live, the more afraid they are of death.
“Mr. Wang, to be honest, I am here this time. In addition to telling you this matter, I also want to ask you for a favor.”
As if he was afraid of the latter misunderstanding, he added: "Don't worry, Mr. Wang, I don't want to ask you to come out and help us deal with the beast. Every generation has its destiny. For our generation, do what you have to do." Enough is enough."
"Not so polite."
Mr. Wang smiled and shook his head, "I have lived for such a long time, and I am old enough. Tell me, what is it that you want to ask me for help?"
“I would like to ask Mr. Wang to secretly protect someone for me.”
“Secretly protecting someone for you?”
Mr. Wang looked surprised.
A person appeared in Shi Tao's mind and he said: "In the next period of time, I really have nothing to do, but I am very optimistic about this person. If something happens to him, it will definitely be a great loss for our Yan country."
"who is he?"
Lao Wang couldn't help but become curious.
Shi Tao said two words.
“Chen Fan? Why do I seem to have heard of this name?”
Lao Wang was stunned.
“That’s right, that’s the guy.”
Shi Tao smiled bitterly.
“Is it really him?”
Mr. Wang looked into his eyes and asked, "Is that the Chen Fan who reached the True Essence Realm at a young age? The one who can improve the elixir recipe?"
Mr. Wang nodded slightly, and suddenly frowned, "I remember that he was in a small town called Anshan City, and the beast tide broke out. That place was indeed very dangerous, but for his ability, there seemed to be no one at the headquarters. , what can you do to him?"
“What if he doesn’t want to come?”
Even Mr. Wang couldn't hold back after hearing this.
“He refuses to come?”
Shi Tao also looked helpless.
“When I left the headquarters in the morning, I asked Chang Fei and the others to contact him and tell him about the outbreak of the beast tide, and asked him to bring his family to the headquarters immediately. However, he refused.”
"how could be?"
Mr. Wang’s face was full of confusion.
You must know that the outermost areas are not only facing an endless tide of beasts, but also beast kings, and even beast king-level ferocious beasts!
Such a tiny place can be easily razed to the ground in front of a beast king-level ferocious beast.
If he stays, isn’t he seeking death?
“Chen Fan said that he wants to stay and guard Anshan City.” Shi Tao’s voice sounded, “If the day comes that we can no longer defend Anshan City, he will come, but not now.”
Lao Wang's mouth was half open, and for a moment, he didn't know what to say.
Say he is overestimating his abilities? Really overestimating one's abilities.
Even S-level awakened people would not dare to do such a thing.
Just a True Yuan realm warrior, why?
But he did this for the sake of ordinary people. If he were in his time, he would be a well-deserved knight.
It’s just that most of these knights will not end well.
“So, you want me to go to Anshan City.”
Shi Tao nodded, "Mr. Wang, you don't care what happens in Anshan City, but if Chen Fan's life is in danger, I hope that Mr. Wang, you can rescue him, and preferably, bring him to the headquarters, just like I did before As I said, if he dies, it will not only be a loss for our Jiangnan Division Martial Arts Association, but also a loss for our Yan Country."
Mr. Wang agreed: "Originally, I was a little interested in that little guy. I was thinking about when he would come to the headquarters to meet him. If he was a good character, I would give him some good fortune.
Now that I hear what you say, he interests me even more. Throughout the ages, there have been many talented people, but those who have both talent and moral character are rare. Go out and take a look, it’s time for this old bone to get some exercise. "
Hearing this, Shi Tao was overjoyed and couldn't help but said: "Mr. Wang, do you agree?"
“Why don’t you agree?”
Mr. Wang looked at him and smiled and said: "You finally asked me for a favor, and I can't refuse, right? I just happened to go and see what kind of person that little guy is, and whether he deserves your attention. "
“Then, I’m going to trouble Mr. Wang.”
Shi Tao bowed deeply.
Although he had already guessed before he came, given Mr. Wang's personality, there was a high probability that he would agree to do this favor for him.
However, there is also a probability of rejection.
"Hehehe, what's the trouble? Give me his information later, and I'll set off early tomorrow morning."
“Yes, Mr. Wang, actually, the information has been prepared.” Shi Tao said, taking out a folder from the space ring.
“You, boy, have thought it through quite carefully.” Mr. Wang couldn’t even laugh, but he still stretched out his hand, took the folder, and started reading.
After a few minutes, he closed the document and said, "I'll take care of this matter. If you have something else to do, go ahead and do it. You don't need to stay here with me."
Shi Tao bowed, then turned and left.
The moment he walked out, a look of relief appeared on his face.
With Mr. Wang taking action, there shouldn't be any danger from Chen Fan's side.
Next, he has to do what he has to do.
“I hope that this time, the final winner will be us, the human race.”
He thought to himself and walked forward.
