The man eventually intervenes but Jing Yu remains cautious, suggesting that they leave immediately. Not far behind, a hooded figure is silently lurking.
During this critical moment, the hooded figure reappears and calls for the man to surrender what he wants so that he may spare the boys, or else.. the village is full of people too, cue villainous laughter.
Given the looming threat, the man quickly absorbs Jing Yu’s poison, warns Xiao Fan to stay inside and rushes to face the enemy.
The man decides that it is safest to send Xiao Fan and Jing Yu to Qing Yun for fear of their lives. Interestingly, his eyes blaze a glaring bright red and his expression turns eerily sinister as he mentions that teaching one of the boys his Tian Yin Technique may be the key to fulfilling his lifelong wish.
