This is the third time Qian Wanyu had to use the reincarnation bow. She pulled the bow string and placed the arrow of spiritual power on it then aimed at the door that disappeared before. She closed her eyes, and her consciousness covered the entire area. It sensed Ninth Sister and the little mute were located behind her left, and another person was located in front of her right.
Dongfang Minghui held her breath. She watched Seventh sister’s arrow move from left to right, and then from right to left. Her whole heart followed that arrow.
After Qian Wanyu aimed at a position, she let go of her hand, and the arrow of spiritual power that combined five strands of spiritual power easily broke through the door. With a bang, the door was blasted into a hole by the spiritual power although it was not too big or small. Just enough for a person’s head to get in.
“Seventh sister, your arrow strength and control is getting better and better now.”
The little mute cautiously poked his head in through the hole, saw Wei Junlan collapsed on the ground, and immediately let out a anxious sound, “Ahh.”
Qian Wanyu smashed the stone door with her fist, and after getting in, she found that the corpse that faced them before was gone and Wei Junlan was lying on one side, breathing heavily. She seemed to have passed out.
Qian Wanyu patted the other person’s cheek, “Wake up.”
The person lying on the ground did not respond.
“Seventh sister, send her out first, we’d better get out of here quickly.”
This place felt too weird.
In desperation, Qian Wanyu sent Wei Junlan out of the cave where the next person could be calmly. The little mute wanted to gather the the bones on the ground, but after searching, he found that there was nothing which means, he was left with only one bone left to remember…
For this reason, the little mute was sad again, and led the way back from the original road with the sole white bone.
Dongfang Minghui dragged Wei Junlan forward, and Qian Wanyu followed behind. It took a little effort to bring a living person out of the narrow corridor.
Dongfang Minghui held the blue pearl in her mouth and dragged Wei Junlan into the sea.
Qian Wanyu and the little mute worked together to move the two boulders back to their original positions. The two of them were working hard when they heard exclamations from behind.
Just after being dragged into the sea, Wei Junlan, who was supposed to appear in the water barrier suddenly went berserk. Her fish tail which was even bigger than before, flipped and shot Dongfang Minghui’s water barrier ten meters away. As if she was crazy, she dove to into the sea and her fish tail slapped heavily on the sea surface causing a huge plume of water to envelop Qian Wanyu and the little mute.
Qian Wanyu was sprayed with sea water all over her face, and the lightning whip in her hand was already shining with purple lightning.
Wei Junlan rolled on the sea without fear of death, soon huge waves rolled from everywhere, this posture was no less than causing a mini tsunami in the sea.
“Seventh sister, let’s go quickly.”
Dongfang Minghui was tied with vines, the other end of the vines was sneaking from the bottom of the sea to the side of the boulders. Some strands of vines planned to hide and bring Qian Wanyu and the little mute out under Wei Junlan’s nose.
They were blocked in the rear, and on the other side was a cliff face, but because of the surging waves, gravel on it was falling down.
Qian Wanyu and the little mute couldn’t dodge, and when they dodged, there were always a few pieces of gravel dropping close by. The little mute was so frightened that his face turned pale. He had grown up so big but he had never seen such strong waves, one layer after another rushing towards them.
A wave hit, and Qian Wanyu was completely buried at the bottom of the sea, choking hard on sea water.
The little mute grabbed her vigorously and pulled her out of the sea but was soon beaten down by a huge wave.
The little mute felt that his waist was being pulled by a vine, and hurriedly gestured towards Qian Wanyu with one hand, but was dragged away by Little Color’s vine.
“Seventh sister, little mute, are you all right?”
“Cough, I’m okay.”
Qian Wanyu spat out a mouthful of seawater, squinted at Wei Junlan who was still ‘making waves’ in the sea, “It seems that we have indeed obtained the treasure.”
“Ah? Seventh sister, what treasure?”
“We won’t know the details until Wei Junlan wakes up.”
They were floating on the sea for three whole days before the shocking waves quieted down. When the sky cleared and the sea calmed down, there lay a beautiful mermaid with a ten-meter-long tail in the sea.
“Little Colour, please drag Wei Junlan back.”
The little mute was dizzy, it took him a long time to identify the correct position after being rocked constantly by the waves. He led the way in front, grabbed the vine with one hand, and pulled the water barrier behind which had a huge blue mermaid behind it.
After Wei Junlan went crazy she seemed to have fallen asleep now.
When they returned to the isolated island, the group of rescued merpeople and charm merpeople who had stayed on the isolated island for more than ten days came to welcome them one after another. Especially after seeing Wei Junlan’s new appearance, they all knelt down and bowed together, crossing their hands over their heads or prostrating on their knees. They were all lying on the ground and muttering words they couldn’t understand.
Little Color pulled Wei Junlan to the shore, letting her blue fish tail sink to the bottom of the water.
The bonfire had already been extinguished, Qian Wanyu got closer and found that there was no residual heat left.
“Seventh sister, what are they doing, do they regard her as the holy ancestor in the history of the merpeople?”
The two changed their clothes and rested for a while.
Wei Junlan who was half lying on the shore with half of her body submerged in the sea, suddenly raised her head, and the scales that had disappeared before covered her face again. She narrowed her eyes and took a few breaths to try to get her bearings on where she was.
“How did I get back here?!”
All her memories were still in that closed hole. She remembered she accidentally touched the skeleton, and as a result, a series of information flew into her mind. Thinking of this, Wei Junlan still felt dizzy, especially her head, which hurt a little.
“Hey, do you two have no conscience, just leaving me here?!” As soon as Wei Junlan stretched out her hand, Ba Tian quickly brought two mermen to help her up from the sea.
“Oh, don’t move me so fast.”
Wei Junlan felt weird, she flicked her fish tail and heard the sound of splashing water from behind her. She turned her head and was stunned at her own huge fish tail! She pinched herself vigorously until it hurt but it was still there!
“You all turn around…”
The merpeople obediently turned around and lined up in a row.
Dongfang Minghui looked at Wei Junlan helplessly, “Don’t lie to yourself, come ashore quickly, Seventh sister still has something to ask you.”
Wei Junlan soaked in the sea for a long time before walking onto the isolated island with her human legs. She looked at her legs suspiciously but found that her human legs hadn’t grown, just the fish tail had grown a lot.
“I think it is probably because of that skeleton…” She muttered
“That skeleton was a merman.” Qian Wanyu moved her lips, “Did you get his power—”
“Yes.” Wei Junlan shrugged helplessly, “I just touched it by accident, and it wasn’t on purpose. It was actually because of that dark blue bead. I think the skeleton should be related to that bead, my hands got dragged in and I accidentally…”
Dongfang Minghui took out the dark blue bead that protected her the whole time at sea, “Is it this kind?”
“The appearance is similar, but it is a little bigger than this.”
“It should be the spirit core of the Merpeople.” Qing Mo boldly speculated, “Maybe that skeleton is the ancestor of the merpeople who became famous in the first battle. I have to say that your friend’s fortune is also good, her luck is quite good.”
“I don’t know if it’s good or not. If it’s truly according to what you said and what the Qing Lan Sect people are looking for is that bead, what exactly were they trying to do?”
“Could it be that they want to recreate a Spirit Saint?” Qing Mo said it jokingly but even he was inexplicably startled at the possibility.
“A bunch of lunatics.”
Qian Wanyu had a serious face, and Dongfang Minghui didn’t know what Seventh sister was thinking. For a moment, the atmosphere among the three was very strange.
After the little mute landed on the shore, he ran to the depths of the woods alone, found an excellent place, dug a hole, buried the bone in the soil, and ran back in disgrace.
“How did I get back?” Wei Junlan glanced at them and asked cautiously.
Dongfang Minghui didn’t expect this guy to create a sea tsunami. If it wasn’t for Little Color, she would have been blown to the other side of the sea.
Wei Junlan felt even more uneasy when she heard Dongfang Minghui snort softly.
Qian Wanyu glanced at Wei Junlan thoughtfully, and asked softly, “How are you feeling?”
Wei Junlan felt great, she was full of spiritual energy, and felt more comfortable than ever before. She nodded slightly, “Very good, very comfortable.”
“Ninth Sister, take her to the tent and take a sample.”
“Hey wait—ah——” Wei Junlan looked at her wrist that was bitten, and pointed at Dongfang Minghui angrily, “You are so cruel now, don’t you know how to use a knife? You actually chewed my wrist with your mouth?!”
Who knows where the knife went, with no alternative, Dongfang Minghui had no choice but to bite it herself.
“Love Flower isn’t here, Little Colour, can you tell the difference between her blood and the normal mermaid’s blood?”
“Her spiritual power is very pure. The violent beast blood left in her body should be gone now as well.” Little Color could feel a huge spiritual power contained in the blood, she glanced greedily and returned to Dongfang Minghui’s soul sea before she did something drastic.
Dongfang Minghui was worried, she bit her own finger, and dripped a little red blood into the blue blood. The red immediately covered the blue blood. The red and blue blended together, looking very beautiful. She thought to herself, it seems her blood can purify the blood of the mermaids, but sooner or later the red blood would be swallowed by the blue blood.
“You must be addicted to biting.” Wei Junlan randomly found a piece of cloth to bandage her wound, bent her legs habitually, and said casually, “Tell me, what happened, I can bear it.”
Dongfang Minghui pursed her lips tightly, rubbed her fingers behind his back, and the bitten place quickly recovered, “Seventh sister knows more about it, I’ll let Seventh sister tell you.”
Qian Wanyu was looking at Ba Tian and the others. Just now, Wei Junlan screamed and howled, which decisively attracted Ba Tian’s hatred to her. With a light whip however, Ba Tian immediately froze when a lightning bolt struck the ground next to them.
The group of merpeople were so frightened that they all retreated and fell to the ground.
Only Ba Tian was frightened that his legs went limp yet he stood resolutely where he was, looking like he had a bit of backbone.
“Seventh sister, come here.”
“I’m warning you, don’t come in, or my whip will be merciless.”
Holding the long whip in her hand, Qian Wanyu looked around Wei Junlan again and again, “Young Master Wei, I regret to tell you some bad news.”
When Wei Junlan heard that, her spine felt chills, especially the half-smile of the other party, which was really scary, “What news, Third Miss please don’t go around in circles.”
“I gave you two choices before, before you still had the right to choose, but now – you have no choice.”
“What do you mean?” Wei Junlan’s low voice trembled a little, she thought about it, and still remembered the two options at that time, “How could there be no choice?!”
Seeing her face turn pale, Qian Wanyu didn’t bother to tease her, so she restrained his expression and sat down solemnly, “If my guess is not wrong, the merman corpse you touched by accident is one that was active a hundred years ago from the merman clan.” That person must have been a generation of Spiritual Saint, the merpeople all worshiped him as a god, and they called him the holy ancestor. Unfortunately, for some reason, he disappeared a hundred years ago. You could say it’s because of him that your fish tail appeared.”
“W-what does it have to do with my fishtail?!” Wei Junlan was about to curse.
“I learned from this little book just now that the color of your fish tail represents the strength and weakness of a merperson’s spiritual power. There are also grades of color, but the closer to the color of the sea, the purer the spiritual power. That is why when the ordinary merpeople see your fish tail they automatically associate you with that Holy Ancestor from a hundred years ago. He must have had a fish tail with the same color as yours…”
Wei Junlan looked at her feet, which had been soaked in sea water for too long, with a gloomy expression.
“They regard you as the god of the merpeople. If you leave like this, their clan will face annihilation.” Qian Wanyu frowned, opened half of the tent, and pointed at Ba Tian and the others outside, “Look, Ba Tian and the others stood by your side, and suffered a lot for you.”
Although some wounds could be healed, the scars were always imprinted there.
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes widened when she heard it, she looked at Wei Junlan and then at Seventh sister, and was speechless for a long time.
How did an unintentional move lead to the current dilemma now?
“I don’t care.” Wei Junlan murmured, she stood up suddenly, “One more mermaid is not too much, and one less is not much. Before I came, they were barely living as well weren’t they? I don’t believe that I can change their situation.”
Qian Wanyu looked at her quietly.
“Yes, one less mermaid is not a lot, and one more of you is not much. But, the Death spiritual masters are after you and Ninth Sister. Do you want to escape to the ends of the world, or face them head-on, the choice is yours!”
