Dongfang Minghui kept turning her head to look at the isolated island. She sat down again until she could no longer see it. She never expected that this journey of sharks would end in this way, “Seventh sister, can we see Wei Junlan again?”
In the past, in the Seven Coloured Continent, there were only three empires, as long as you found the Blood Fiend Alliance, you could contact Wei Junlan. But now, if she wanted to see this fellow villager again, she’d really have to cross mountains and rivers… There were many difficulties.
Qian Wanyu and Dongfang Minghui drifted in the sea for seven days, watching the sunrise and sunset, the ebb and flow of the tide, and every time they deviated slightly from their direction, Little Color’s vines would try their best to find a reference and use its vines to steer them back on the right track.
Qian Wanyu worked day and night to seize the time to practice. The speed of the arrows she condensed with spiritual power was getting faster and faster, and the shape was changing anytime and anywhere.
“Seventh sister, this arrow looks more and more real, but…”
Dongfang Minghui thought of Meng Yixiao, “I was thinking that if the things you condense can be preserved, they can be used to save your life in times of crisis in the future, just like before how Meng Yixiao condensed his icicles.”
“It is indeed a good way to use it that way.”
Qian Wanyu had this idea for a long time herself but after listening to Ninth Sister’s words, her impression of the idea deepened. She asked Qing Mo, who was cultivating in her soul sea, “Is there any way to preserve the spiritual power I condensed? It’ll be useful in case I need it.”
“There might be.”
“So, there is still a way.”
“There must be.”
What Qing Mo could think of was a small trick, which is the method that could divide one person into two, “Do you still remember getting a fragment of this skill in Lanserburg.”
“I remember, at that time you said that the illusion technique was somewhat similar to the technique practiced by Meng Yixiao.”
“Yes.” Qing Mo thought for a moment, “Before you were not allowed to practice the illusion technique because I was afraid that your spiritual power would not be enough to separate the two. Now, the timing is just right, you can try it.”
“When practicing the illusion technique, don’t rush. Some people may be exhaust their spiritual energy after decades of practice. The person in Lanserburg went mad because he couldn’t practice it properly. This just shows how evil this illusion technique is.”
While it was still dark, Qian Wanyu quickly read the scrolls that she had collected earlier. She had a good memory and could almost read ten lines at a glance, she quickly threw them back into the space ring again.
Then she close her eyes to start practicing.
Dongfang Minghui had long been used to this kind of Seventh sister, so watching the other party cultivate, while condensing spiritual power into a solid body then having the solid body disappear without a trace as if juggling bodies was strange but she didn’t mind.
What to do…
When Dongfang Minghui wasn’t practicing with the other party, she crushed the seabed medicinal plants picked from the seabed before into a liquid medicine, and refined several pills with unique effects, which she carefully packed in porcelain bottles.
When she looked up, she saw the shoreline.
There was no shore around the sea area, either small islands or bare cliffs surrounded every place. This is the first time she had seen lush forests. From a distance, she could see a large piece of land and the vines of Little Color moved up ittle by little creeping forward slowly and climbing around before whizzing down again.
“There are a lot of people hiding in the woods above, it looks like an ambush.”
Dongfang Minghui was very pleasantly surprised at first, but after hearing this, she was scared, “Let’s talk about it after Seventh sister wakes up from the practice, maybe the people laying in ambush there are not waiting for us.”
Seeing that she still hadn’t given up, Little Color saw that the vine branches were rising up little by little, and just as soon as her vines came out, they heard a slight conversation, “Brother, the elder sent a flying letter, did someone tell us to wait here? Who was it? We have been waiting for nearly ten days…”
“I don’t know, the letter just said that that person robbed the elders of what they wanted, so we must find a way to let them remain.” The man called senior brother spoke softly.
Little Color was able to catch a glimpse of the other’s figure, which looked very young.
“It’s the Qing Lan Sect’s people, they are waiting for us.”
“It’s the Qing Lan Sect again…”
These bunch of ghosts!
Now the only bit of luck in Dongfang Minghui’s heart was gone, she pouted, “We’ll talk about it after Seventh sister wakes up.”
This wait turned to most of the day, from dawn until dark.
Probably because she couldn’t feel the fluctuation of the water, Qian Wanyu opened her eyes suddenly, and saw Ninth Sister staring at her with her head propped up on her knees, “Ninth Sister, what’s wrong?”
Dongfang Minghui pointed to the top, “The only way through is above, we must pass there but there are people from Qing Lan Sect ambushing.”
“How many people?”
“About twenty or thirty people.” Little Color didn’t count in detail, and came down after checking for a while.
Qian Wanyu pulled Dongfang Minghui to stand up together, and the two jumped from the water cover to the shore, “Their news is pretty good, let’s go straight up and pretend we don’t know anything.”
“If we attract the Qing Lan Sect’s attention to us and let them know that we have taken the things instead of her, Wei Junlan can carry out her plan boldly in the merpeople race.”
Qian Wanyu had already figured out a way to get out. She wrapped Dongfang Minghui’s waist with one hand, and threw out her whip with the other. The tip of the whip made a big mark on the cliff, and the sound at night was infinitely amplified in everyone’s ears.
Dongfang Minghui was also thinking quickly, “Do you still have the spirit beads found in the palace?”
“Yes, when we go up, I’ll give you a few more.”
“Those seem to be spiritual beads condensed from various types of spiritual energy. I don’t know how that person collected them. I absorbed one last time, and the spiritual energy inside is very abundant.”
Qian Wanyu smiled without saying a word. Before she went up, her consciousness covered the area first. She felt that the people guarding the forest were about to move. Obviously, they were also very interested in the spirit beads in Ninth Sister’s mouth.
The two jumped up, and as if they didn’t notice, they sat down on the ground first, gasping a few times.
“Seventh sister, what about those things, give me one!” Dongfang Minghui couldn’t wait to show off her pout.
Qian Wanyu rummaged in her space ring for a while, but there were not many spirit beads left. Except for three green beads and two fiery red beads, she had absorbed all the remaining beads.
Dongfang Minghui looked shocked. She didn’t know what method Seventh sister used to make the already sparkling fiery red spirit beads shine even more brightly. Not only that, the huge fire type spiritual power was like a burning flame, attracting people’s gaze.
The disciples of the Qing Lan Sect had sharp ears, and when they heard their conversation, they dismissed them at first, but when they felt the scorching heat blowing towards their faces, they all gasped.
Qian Wanyu appropriately discovered their existence ‘just in time’, she retracted her wrist, and the flaming orb just now entered her space ring again. Darkness once more shrouded everyone’s heads, except for the silvery moonlight elongating their figures there was nothing else.
The rustling sound made the quiet night a bit weird.
Dongfang Minghui grabbed Qian Wanyu’s clothes and hid behind her in fear, “Seventh sister, who are they?”
The lightning whip in Qian Wanyu’s hand also reflected the silver light, and purple lightning flowed back and forth on the whip, which seemed to have a shocking beauty, “Hiding your head and tail, it seems that everyone has been waiting here for a long time, why don’t you report your name? Come and let me know who you are.”
“I don’t want to make things difficult for you two girls. I will keep the space rings in your hands, but I need you two to stay for a while.” The other party’s voice was very soft, and the words he said were very gentle. As if he wasn’t robbing someone but merely stating a fact.
When Dongfang Minghui heard it, her heart was filled with shock. She was very familiar with this voice. She had never had a good impression of Qing Lan Sect. The only thing she was familiar with was probably the past event hidden in her heart, which was Qing Yan!
Fortunately, it was night time, even though everyone was face to face, they couldn’t tell the features.
Qian Wanyu also noticed that her breathing was unsteady, but she moved her steps calmly, completely blocking Minghui behind her, “Why?”
“Just relying on the three words Qing Lan Sect.”
“Oh, Kang Hu.” Qing Yan sighed heavily, and said with some regret, “I think you both heard clearly, I gave you a choice before but now, you two not only have to keep the space rings in your hands here, your life needs to be left behind as well.”
Qian Wanyu’s cold voice suddenly turned into insolent laughter, “What an arrogant tone, I think the three words Qing Lan Sect should be written backwards. You guys specialize in killing people and stealing goods, yet you still want to set yourself up as a just and clean sect? Ridiculous.”
Qing Mo, who was standing in the sea of souls, wished he could seal her mouth, so that these dirty words never appeared!
In the dark night, half of the sky was illuminated by a few thunderbolts. Suddenly there was a gust of wind blowing around the calm sea. Everyone’s sleeves were blown up and their hair was flying in a mess. “What are we waiting for Brother Qing Yan—”
After getting the exact name, Qian Wanyu’s aura became murderous, she was planning to kill all of them.
“The other party is a Spiritual Master of both lightning and wind elements. She’s already making movements, kill her.” Qing Yan had just finished telling him, when he felt an extremely dangerous gaze sweeping over him. He instinctively dodged and the big tree behind him fell to the ground.
“Your vigilance is quite high.”
With that miss, Qian Wanyu lost the best chance to kill Qing Yan, the reincarnation bow in her hand was thrown back into her space ring again.
That little junior who followed Mu Qing back then has grown to such a degree. Qian Wanyu felt that Qing Lan Sect’s level of talent cultivation was a bit high so she wanted to take this opportunity to kill Qing Yan.
“Seventh sister, I’ll kill him.”
Qing Yan stood at the outermost edge, and he still felt chills in his heart, he felt that the information sent by the elder’s flying letter was wrong. These two people were very difficult to deal with! He was considering whether to release the signal flare when he felt that someone was approaching.
He summoned a water ball to hit from all directions towards the person approaching.
The silk umbrella in Dongfang Minghui’s hand lightly propped up to block the attack of the water ball. When the button in her hand released, the ball shot back towards Qing Yan but at the same time exposed herself.
“Ambushing here like you is called a sneak attack, just die for me.”
Dongfang Minghui laughed angrily at his brazen appearance, and shot the remaining silver needles towards Qing Yan one after another. Qing Yan’s water ball buffered the sneak attack of the silver needles and hidden weapons, he turned around and took out the signal flare from his body.
The signal flew into the air, emitting colorful lights.
Under the cover of the trees, the vine branches of Little Color quietly tied their legs, and with a force, the group of proud Qing Lan Sect disciples ate soil.
“Brother, the vines!”
One or two fireballs hit the woods, flames ignited the trees, and the light illuminated everyone’s panicked faces again.
Qian Wanyu looked gloomy, her eyes shifted from the faces of the group of people to Qing Yan’s face, she remembered that there was another girl besides Qing Yan back then, but this girl wasn’t here now.
Qing Yan looked a bit embarrassed, there were several holes in his clothes, which were made by the hidden weapons. When his eyes casually met Qian Wanyu, he suddenly frowned deeply, “You—”
Qian Wanyu’s face looked a little familiar.
Qian Wanyu spun around and sent the attacker flying from behind.
The man fell directly in mid-air, falling from a high cliff, “Ah, brother, help me!”
Several images flashed through Qing Yan’s mind, and before he could catch any of them, he saw a vines disappearing from his eyes, and he hurriedly said, “Vines are afraid of fire, everyone use fire to attack!”
The psychological quality of this group of Qing Lan Sect disciples was indeed higher than that of ordinary people. When the Qing Lan Sect disciples who were dragged to other places heard that the vines were afraid of fire, they quickly used their spiritual power one after another. Colorful spiritual power glittered in the woods.
Little Color responded extremely quickly but even so, some of her vines were still damaged a lot.
“Hey, I have to kill this group of people with a thousands of knives!”
Dongfang Minghui watched the flames separate her and Seventh sister. After releasing some spiritual power, the scattered leaves floated up from the ground, turned into hidden weapons, and flew towards the group of people in unison.
“It’s a wood-type Spiritual King!”
“Senior brother, she is a dual type Spiritual Monarch!”
Qing Yan’s cheek was scratched by the flying leaf, and the wound was still bleeding. His neck was almost cut off by a leaf?! After decisively judging the combat strength of the two parties, he made a quick decision, “Quick retreat now!”
“Want to leave? Haha.”
Qian Wanyu suddenly floated in mid-air, and a series of earthen walls were built to stop those Qing Lan Sect disciples who were trying to flee like stray dogs.
Looking at the earth wall that popped up suddenly, and the earth spikes on the earth wall, everyone looked like they had seen a ghost, “Big brother, it’s an earth type spiritual power! S-she’s a three element Spiritual Master!”
The vines of Little Color also laid a net in the sky and on the earth. The sharp thorns on the vines swept everyone’s legs unexpectedly, but they dodged quickly. They even threw a fireball at the vines. The ones who were slower however were directly dragged away by Little Color, only to hear sharp and piercing screams after.
“Are we going to die here?”
These were just a group of brothers who came out to practice and accidentally received a flying letter from an elder of Qing Lan Sect. They hadn’t really even seen the wonderful and colorful side of this world, let alone the cruel and bloody side of this world. Therefore, after facing a series of suppressions, those with weak minds began to cry in low voices, and some had lost their combat effectiveness.
Qing Yan watched them attack back and forth, knowing that this time was more likely end in disaster he calmly began to look at the surrounding environment. After seeing the power of the two Spiritual Master levels, Qing Yan felt that this ambush was a joke, how could they ambush a Spirit King and Spirit Monarch?
Dongfang Minghui tilted her head and looked at Qing Yan, the only person she really wanted to kill today was this person.
The corner of Qian Wanyu’s mouth hooked slightly, “I’ll give you a chance to survive.”
The cool and pleasant voice suddenly entered the ears of everyone present.
“Kill this man, and you can get out of here alive.” The direction Qian Wanyu pointed was exactly where Qing Yan was. A big fire was burning on the big tree beside Qing Yan, and the flames wiped out illuminated Qing Yan clearly. The facial expressions on his face was clearly illuminated.
Qing Yan could capture the coldness and murderous intent in Qian Wanyu’s eyes by taking advantage of the situation but he couldn’t understand it.
“Seventh sister, they have called in reinforcements just now, they are just stalling for time.”
“I’ll give you five breaths of time to prepare, if he doesn’t die, then you all will die.”
There was a dead silence at the scene, and then someone’s footsteps began to move, as heavy as a thousand catties, but they still moved. Qing Yan secretly carried a water ball in his hands, and the sea water below the cliff surged up silently, one after another, waves slapped on the shore.
Dongfang Minghui nervously held her silk umbrella in her hand. If Qing Yan died in the hands of his own people, it would be Qing Lan Sect’s own housework. She had to admire Seventh sister’s great proposal. However, seeing the different expressions of everyone, she was also secretly on guard.
The green leaves around her slowly floated up.
Qing Yan looked at the “brothers” who were approaching him. It was the first time he had encountered such a realistic problem. He smiled wryly, “If I can sacrifice myself and save everyone as a senior brother I have a duty to do it, but—how do you know? Will these two women let you go easily?”
Qian Wanyu gave them a fixed amount of time, “Since you can’t do anything, then go and accompany him—”
“Seventh sister, watch out from behind.”
With the help of the fiery red light, Dongfang Minghui could clearly see that hidden behind the darkness, a water dragon slowly opening its bloody mouth appeared behind Qian Wanyu, behind the cliffs and on the path leading to the sea.
“It seems that you have all made your choice.”
Qian Wanyu felt a bit regretful that she couldn’t see the Qing Lan Sect’s disciples killing each other to save their lives. She suddenly disappeared in front of everyone.
Qing Yan threw the water dragon transformed from spiritual power into the air and had no choice but to sweep towards Dongfang Minghui.
The silk umbrella in her hand opened slightly, and it blocked the huge head of the water dragon.
Qing Yan suddenly felt the danger, he wanted to move, but found that he couldn’t avoid it and couldn’t move. Feeling a cold breath behind him, he stared wide-eyed, watching his spiritual power disappear little by little. In the end, even his vitality gradually disappeared!
What is this?!
Countless fears arose in Qing Yan’s heart.
Without the support of spiritual power, the water dragon turned into a puddle of sea water.
Dongfang Minghui put away her silk umbrella, and shouted to the person behind Qing Yan, “Seventh sister!”
Qing Yan’s eyes widened, and a memory hidden in the deepest part of his memory was taken out again before he died, his entire body trembled, he wanted to reach out, but in the end, he couldn’t do anything.
He remembered, he remembered!
Back then, in the Purple Demon Mountains, the three of them, three brothers and sisters, he saw a very immature young man and a young girl next to the campfire, and that young man was the woman in front of him…
It’s no wonder that after senior brother’s soul card was broken, they dispatched so many senior brothers but they never found the pair of siblings. It turned out that it was because he had misidentified one of their genders!
An ugly smile showed and he could only cry—it turned out to be you! Seventh sister…Seventh sister…Seventh sister… Such an obvious hint, yet he hadn’t thought of it until now…damn
With a wave of Qian Wanyu’s finger, Qing Yan was engulfed by the flames like a paper man, and was wiped out into ashes.
This night, the Qing Lan Sect was very lively, the sound of broken soul cards came from the soul pavilion like a constant ringing bell, frightening the group of brothers and sisters.
Haha he couldn’t think of it until he died! Oh well looks like Qing Lan Sect might be onto them at some point though since the girl is still alive.
