Because she really wanted to go there and train as well.
After all, she hadn't had any true training after she had been reborn, except for that incident at Hulan Mountain.
She could not grow stronger unless she endlessly trained and obtained more experience from real combat.
She never dared to slow down because she did not have the right to slow down.
Moreover, she wanted to take a look at how unbeatable Qinghe Town was—the zombie stronghold that struck terror into everyone who mentioned it.
"Help yourself, City Lord." Then, Qiao Mu turned around and slipped away from the tip of Murong Xun's fingers, rushing out of the door.
City Lord Gu's mouth couldn't help but twitch when he looked up.
The typically calm and confident child actually looked a bit tussled from the back as she fled with horror…
A chuckle broke out of Murong Xun. With a step, she ethereally floated in the air and drifted behind the child. "Little One, why don't you make a bet with Master? If you can tie Master up for 15 minutes today, it will be considered your win, and Master won't disturb you anymore."
The peculiar scene of having an apparition floating behind her as she walked was so wondrous that Qiao Mu could not bear to look directly at it.
Qiaoqiao madly dashed out of Pear Blossom Alley. When she turned the corner, she happened to run into Duan Yue. He was walking toward her with a smile and lifted his hand in a greeting. "Qiaoqiao, how coincidental… Huh?"
The youth was dumbfounded as he watched Mentor Murong drift pass him.
Qiao Mu felt like she was using every bit of her strength from both this life and her past life…
She had pasted three speed talismans in a row onto herself for this mad dash, but when she looked back… 'F*ck me! The ghost behind me is still here and is cheerfully tailing me without any change in her expression!'
Qiao Mu bounded toward the eastern district. She felt like she ran thousands of miles and more than four hours, but she still could not lose that woman behind her.
"Little one, don't blame Master for not reminding you! The direction you're running brings you closer to the waters. That place is especially spacious, so you won't be able to run away, okay?" A certain master had drifted behind Qiao Mu the whole way without a flush on her face or a pant of her breath. She was even grinning the whole time.
'What okay?! Screw you…'
"This body of water eventually leads to Hope Sea, so it can be considered a part of the Hope Sea. The waters might look placid right now, but there are high tides at noon. It's very thrilling and turbulent, alright?"
An expansive body of water appeared in front of Qiao Mu.
She finally stopped running and turned to look at the "ghost" tailing her.
"Why aren't you running anymore?" Murong Xun paused in the air and looked at Qiao Mu with amusement in her eyes.
"You can't go back on your word," Qiao Mu suddenly said this before whipping out the Spirit Binding Rope and swiftly latching it onto Murong Xun's wrist.
The child tightly bound her captive with a pull and tug. Then she dragged the floating Murong Xun toward a nearby short tree and tied her to the tree with several tight loops.
Murong Xun's eyes twitched as she looked at her little disciple with both amusement and exasperation. "Dear disciple, isn't this a bit too far? You tied Master here, but the high tide will come in less than seven minutes. Master will drown with a single wave!"
Clatter clatter clatter…
As soon as the child let go, she madly ran back to the city and abandoned Murong Xun.
As she ran, she thought, 'The Spirit Binding Rope is truly fearsome! It shouldn't be any problem to bind Murong Xun for 15 minutes, right?!'
Several minutes later…
Qiao Mu paused and glanced behind her with agitation. Murong Xun said it would be high tide soon, but she should not drown to death with how strong she is…
However, the Spirit Binding Rope was always used to bind people without room for escape.
Qiao Mu hesitated for a few seconds before finally deciding to go back and take a look.
However, when she got there, she could not help but be dumbstruck…
She did not see Murong Xun, but she did see that pig teammate, Duan Yue, standing in the water and calling her in distress, "Qiaoqiao, Qiaoqiao…"
Qiao Mu: …
'Oh my f*cking god, you got bound by the Spirit Binding Rope again…'
