Chapter 2634 – Meet Again (2)
The man with the corgi was shirtless but wore a pair of light grey military pants and boots. Once again, the material was foreign to Gu Xijiu. She observed the man who was squatting in the garden but could only see his back. With just a glance, she could tell that he was a man with a good physical build.
The man possessed what was referred to as the ‘perfect inverted triangle’ – broad shoulders with a healthy thin waist. The muscles on his back look visibly bulged, and the vein line of his skin was well-defined. His skin was also of healthy wheat color, and the muscles on his arms made him look extremely strong. Probably due to the humid environment inside the dome, this person had a large amount of sweat on his back. This only accentuated his masculinity.
Who was this person? Gu Xijiu had to find out, so she walked over stood in front of the man. Since this person could not see her, there was no reason for her to feel shy about seeing him topless. Her heart raced as his face slowly became visible to her. This person looked mixed-race. If anything, his features were a combination of the best of both the West and the East. His sword-like eyebrows were long, and his phoenix eyes were sharp and deep. To add to that, he had a tall nose along with slightly thin lips.
This person’s beauty was exceptional. He was perfect without a single flaw, which looked unreal. Although he was merely planting herbs, he looked as though he was a crouching cheetah. The man’s aura was undoubtedly compelling! Gu Xijiu could not help but wonder if this man was the leader of the pack.
Her gaze then fell upon the pair of white gloves on his hands. There was a certain sense of nobility or status that seemed to be attached to those gloves. It appeared to be something that only high-ranking officials would wear. Guan Yaning had worn a pair on his hands too.
Gu Xijiu slightly squinted her eyes to try to study the gloves in more detail. She tried to connect the dots with the information that she had retrieved from all these invaders. According to what she got, these invaders were attacking Tianju Hall, and Guan Yaning just happened to have left the battlefield. He returned to the station because he had to repair his damaged ships; otherwise, he would have returned to the battlefield.
The description made it sound as though the battle was very intense at Tianju Hall. Yet, this person was leisurely planting herbs in the base. Therefore, he must be holding an extremely high post, which gave Gu Xijiu a dilemma. She pinched her fingers together carefully to assess her next move. She was not sure if she should kill this person now or go to Lan Yue before doing so.
She was hesitant to make any rash moves as she knew that she had not fully grasped what was going on. Whi;e she was distracted in her thoughts, the man suddenly looked up at her with a pair of eagle eyes! Gu Xijiu’s heart jumped!
This person had two layers of pupils! The color of his inner pupils was dark purple, which looked like a deep whirlpool. When he looked at people, it seemed to be able to ingest the soul of the person. That certainly gave Gu Xijiu a scare.
Although she did not believe that he could see her with his bare eyes, Gu Xijiu remained still. It was only a moment later that she realized that his sight was not on actually her, but the person behind her. Gu Xijiu looked behind her and shivered involuntarily.
A man in a light blue robe stood behind her. He had long hair and had a handsome face. It was Lan Yue! He looked at the man who squatted in his garden and asked, “Duan Muyan, is the herb done? She is not in good condition.”
Apparently, the handsome mixed-race man was Duan Muyan. He glanced at Lan Yue momentarily but then looked down and focused on the herb he was planting. His fingers lightly wiped on the surface of the herb which was rather unusual.
Fortunately, Gu Xijiu was very focused on the man’s every move. She noticed that there seemed to be a magnetic field on the man’s finger, which made the herb blossom at a visible speed under his touch. When the flower opened to the size of a large cup, Duan Muyan plucked it and then stood up. “Let’s go and see her.” He then strode forward like a tall and sturdy military general.
Although it might be an illusion, Gu Xijiu felt as though the man could actually see her!
