Xie Ru Zhuo felt a little bit dumbfounded. All it took was one arrow to defeat the bear. She can’t believe that the bear was actually so weak, all she did was stabbing an arrow right on its eye.

The assassin was hiding in the bush near them, he gritted his teeth bitterly. He originally thought that this bear could kill Xiao Jun Xi, but suddenly this woman appeared out of nowhere. Consequently, not only did this woman heroically saved Xiao Jun Xi, she also managed to kill the bear!

The killer was overwhelmed with a sense of dread. If he failed to assassinate Xiao Jun Xi today, his master would definitely be furious!

The killer suddenly has an idea.

"Are you okay?" Xiao Jun Xi carefully helped Xie Ru Zhuo up.

Xie Ru Zhuo was thrown to the ground by the bear just now, her ankle sore, and it seemed to be twisted. When she heard Xiao Jun Xi's question, she replied with a pained expression: "I won’t die, it's just that it's very painful."

Xiao Jun Xi smiled when he heard her. He has a type of smile that will gradually melt into people's hearts like sunshine, making people feel attracted to him, and people would fall in love with him if they were not careful.

Xie Ru Zhuo couldn't help but blush when she saw his breath-taking smile. She always knew that Xiao Jun Xi was an extremely good-looking man. Unfortunately, due to his life long illness, his complexion was like a thousand-year-old ancient jade, flawless and pale. His eyes had the same startling clarity as a mountain stream. Such a handsome man, but he always showed a stoic face, but when he smiles it could light up the darkest room.

Xiao Jun Xi felt embarrassed when caught Xie Ru Zhuo staring at him with a dazed look in her eyes. He coughed a few times and said: "Let's go back to the camp first, and then let the royal physicians take a look at your injuries, but about today's matters…"

Xiao Jun Xi's cold gaze fixed on Xie Ru Zhuo’s face: "Don't tell anyone, I will deal with it myself!"

"Okay." Xie Ru Zhuo nodded when she heard a warning tone in Xiao Jun Xi's voice.

Watching Xie Ru Zhuo trying her best to endure her pain, Xiao Jun Xi decided to help her regardless of the no touching rules set by the society between unmarried men and women. He carefully supported her so they could leave, he believed that his people would find them soon.

Xie Ru Zhuo no longer put the importance of the society rule as she was injured and it's impossible for him to help her without touching her, so she let Xiao Jun Xi help her.

They only took a few steps before Xie Ru Zhuo suddenly became alert, she had a feeling that there was a disaster looming in the distance!

"What's wrong? Did your feet hurt?" Xiao Jun Xi unsuspectingly asked with concern when Xie Ru Zhuo suddenly stopped.

Xie Ru Zhuo replied to him in a calm voice: "We need to leave now!"

Thinking the bear must have traumatized her, he nodded, "Okay!"

Xiao Jun Xi supported Xie Ru Zhuo and they walked even faster than before. However, Xie Ru Zhuo was getting more relentless, she subconsciously looked behind her and she broke out in a cold sweat when she saw it.

An arrow!

There is an arrow pointing towards them. More specifically, pointing towards Xiao Jun Xi!

"Be careful!" without thinking twice, Xie Ru Xhuo pushed Xiao Jun Xi away, however she was unable to avoid the arrow.

Unable to bear the pain, Xie Ru Zhuo fell to the ground with an arrow in her chest and before she lost consciousness, all she could think of was how much she wanted to curse at the God.

Xie Ru Zhuo wanted to smile bitterly, but she had no strength left. She looked at Xiao Jun Xi who was holding her anxiously, and thought of the deal Xiao Jun Xi had made with Shen Jing Ci in order to save her life.

She silently said in her heart: "I'm sorry, I hurt you, you must be safe."

Just when Xie Ru Zhuo lost consciousness, Shen Jing Ci rushed over with a group of soldiers.

"Third prince, it’s our fault for being too late!" A man in armour and a group of soldiers immediately knelt towards Xiao Jun Xi pleading guilty!

Xiao Jun Xi was still holding Xie Ru Zhuo in his arms. When he saw the shocked Shen Jing Ci, his eyes turned cold. Who is this woman?

Although Xiao Jun Xi was doubtful of the situation just now, he coldly said: "Catch me the assassin, I want to see him, if he is dead I want to see his dead body!"

"Yes!" Hearing Xiao Jun Xi's order, the man got up and signalled to the soldiers beside him to catch the assassin.

Xiao Jun Xi looked at the horse brought by the soldiers. He then looked down at Xie Ru Zhuo, who was still unconscious. He immediately put her on the horse, got up and sat behind her.

Everyone was shocked, the Third Prince who had the reputation as a reclusive person, rode a horse with a woman!
