Li Yan nodded and took Beibei from Chu Luo. The two of them left together.
Nangong Yi watched them leave before shifting his gaze to Chu Yichen.
Chu Yichen had just finished his cup of wine. At this moment, he looked up at him and said, "Drink with me."
Nangong Yi walked to his previous seat and sat down. He poured some wine and raised his cup at him.
After the two of them drank, he asked, "Forgive me for asking, but what exactly is your relationship with Junior…?"
Chu Yichen looked at him with his knife-like eyes. His powerful aura spread throughout the entire space. In Nangong Yi’s impression, only soldiers had that aura.
"You’re a soldier?" Nangong Yi frowned. Everyone knew that Chu Yichen was a tomb raider.
Nangong Yi thought for a while and asked, "I heard that you slept in the ancient tomb for 18 years. Could it be that you…"
He suddenly had a bold guess.
"Yes, I don’t belong here," Chu Yichen suddenly said.

"Then… why are you here?"
Chu Yichen was about to pour more wine when he realized that the wine in the bottle beside him had been emptied. He took another bottle, opened it, and drank directly from the bottle.
Nangong Yi watched in surprise as he gulped down the entire bottle of wine. He wanted to persuade him, but he didn’t know what to do. He also picked up the wine in front of him and took a sip.
He couldn’t hold his liquor well and didn’t intend to get drunk, so he drank slowly.
After drinking for god knew how long, Chu Yichen’s arm shook and the wine cup beside him fell to the ground with a bang.
Seeing him like this, Nangong Yi guessed that he was drunk. He stood up and suggested, "Mr. Chu, why don’t we call it a night?"
Chu Yichen didn’t refuse. However, he propped himself up and tried to stand up a few times, but to no avail.
Seeing him like this, Nangong Yi quickly walked over to help him.
After steadying his footing, Chu Yichen walked towards the door.
However, he staggered and took a few steps, looking like he was about to fall.
Nangong Yi quickly walked up to hold his arm and said, "I’ll support you."
Chu Yichen didn’t refuse this time.
After the two of them walked out, Chu Yichen suddenly said, "We’re all from Phoenix Skies."
"Phoenix Skies?" Nangong Yi suddenly thought of the ancient tomb Chu Luo and the others had gone to. "It’s that legendary ancient tomb. Which dynasty did you come from?"
"You and Junior both?"
"And Li Yan."
Nangong Yi was shocked. He knew that Chu Luo wasn’t from this era, but he hadn’t expected that besides her, Li Yan and Chu Yichen weren’t either.
Nangong Yi looked at Chu Yichen and asked, "What’s your identity in that dynasty? And… what were Junior and CEO Li’s identities?"
"I was a general, Li Yan was the king, and she was…" Chu Yichen suddenly paused. "She was the most respected High Priestess in Phoenix Skies. "
"High Priestess." Nangong Yi finally understood how Chu Luo’s abilities came about.
The High Priestess had always been a powerful figure in history.
Nangong Yi digested this in silence for a while before looking at Chu Yichen, who was standing there and thinking about something. He asked, "Do you like Junior?"
Chu Yichen’s body trembled and he slowly turned to look at Nangong Yi. His expression was a little strange, as if his secret had been seen through, or as if he had long wanted to tell this secret.
After a while, he nodded. "Yes."
Then, he jumped onto the stone mountain in front of him.
Nangong Yi followed and stood under the stone mountain.
Chu Yichen said, "She was chosen as the successor of the High Priestess when she was very young. The successor of the High Priestess has to learn all kinds of abilities from the High Priest. It’s very boring and lonely. However, she has liked to read all kinds of books since she was young, so she has never felt lonely."
When Nangong Yi heard this, a strange feeling surged in his heart, but he didn’t interrupt.
Chu Yichen: "The first time I saw her, she was learning the sacrificial dance from the High Priestess… Some people are born dancers. When she danced the sacrificial dance, she naturally exuded a calming energy.
"At that time, I had just returned from the battlefield with my father. I couldn’t suppress the ruthlessness in my body. It was her sacrificial dance that suppressed my ruthlessness.
