Blazing sparrows live in groups, and monsters that live in groups were incredibly dangerous, simply because it was too easy to get overwhelmed.
The lightning whip in Qian Wanyu’s hand shone with a cold silver-purple light. The light changed its position, and shot at the resting blazing birds.
The blazing sparrows fluttered their wings, when they saw someone approaching them, they were ready to move. Qian Wanyu always felt that the fiery red light seemed to have grown even more intense.
Mo Ce also sensed that something was wrong, the sword in his hand was out of the sheath. He had to be on guard against any danger that might appear at any time. The blazing sparrows fluttered their wings one after another, and all the sparrows that were resting on the leaves of the grass and on the trees flew up, swarming towards them quickly.
Without hesitation, Qian Wanyu threw out five thunderbolts. The thunder sounded loudly, and it illuminated half of the sky. Then the thunder and lightning swept towards the group of blazing birds. Qian Wanyu could even see the beautiful feathers of the blazing birds clearly. There were also sparrows who were flying amongst the thunder and lightning, but every time they were lucky enough to avoid the thunder and lightning, they kept going forward without fear.
Her worried eyes locked on Minghui’s back.
Were they accidentally brought by Ninth Sister to the Blazing Sparrow’s Nest?
Dongfang Minghui’s pupils were pitch dark, like an abyss, if anyone were to stare at them, they will find that there were lines flowing in those pupils, they looked very beautiful but if you look at them for a long time, you will feel dizzy, and you will be distracted as if being sucked in. The blazing sparrows with fluttering red wings were originally heading towards her eyes, but when they flew into the air, they seemed to have seen something extremely frightening and terrible, they flinched back, rushed forward in groups, then trying to go backwards and then they ended up bumping into each other fiercely, making a number of them fall from the sky.
Dongfang Minghui’s hand started to turn red, and the fiery red light of the Sleepy Dragon Seal suddenly burst out, emitting a dazzling light, but the blazing birds that were slightly illuminated by this light shook twice as if struck by lightning, falling to the ground.
Qian Wanyu and Mo Ce were besieged by Blazing Sparrows. Seeing Ninth Sister walking further and further into the Blazing Sparrow’s lair unimpeded, as calm as Qian Wanyu was, even she couldn’t help becoming anxious, “Mo Ce!”
This was probably the first time Qian Wanyu called the other party’s name in a serious manner, “I’ll make a deal with you, help me block these blazing birds, and I will give you your mother’s relics.”
Mo Ce reacted quickly as if struck by lightning, “Okay.”
“It’s a deal.”
“You must live!”
Before Qian Wanyu left, she unleashed all the spiritual power in her body. The thunder and lightning were mixed with strong winds, and the night sky that originally had bright stars suddenly darkened, just like Qian Wanyu’s mood at this moment. Thunder and lightning appeared in different directions, and the cold wind raged, blowing those blazing birds that were desperately charging into the battle.
Mo Ce was not idle either, the sword in his hand seemed to be alive, and pieces of blazing birds fell down wherever he passed.
Qian Wanyu quickly dodged away from the birds and when she reappeared ten meters later, she quickly trotted after the person in front of her.
As for Jing Ke, who knew what trick he used, those blazing birds couldn’t get close to him. He easily stepped on the corpses of the blazing birds, walked behind Mo Ce step by step, and said with a sly smile, “Thank you for helping us open the path.”
There was no trace of emotion on Mo Ce’s clean face, he glanced at him lightly, and the way of beheading the blazing bird became faster and faster. After Jing Ke left, a black air mass appeared in his hand harvesting the Blazing Sparrow corpses.
Those blazing birds were scared away by the black air in his hand in the end and started to flee.
Mo Ce drew out his long sword, inserted it back into the scabbard and followed Jing Ke’s pace just now, quickly chasing after him.
“Hmm.” Dongfang Minghui felt as if her forehead had been pricked by a needle when she woke up. She snorted softly like a kitten, and before she opened her eyes, she felt a pair of cold hands pressing on her temples helping her relieve the pain gently.
“What else is uncomfortable?”
Dongfang Minghui thought for a moment, “My whole body hurts.” Especially her eyes, Seventh sister pressed them so comfortably that she almost didn’t want to open them.
Qian Wanyu had a complicated look on her face. She chased her all night. When the sun rose, she saw Ninth Sister slowly fall down like how it was on the first day. “We were moving all night.”
Jing Ke was startled, quickly restrained his expression, and slowly walked out from behind the stone pillar, “My lord.”
Dongfang Minghui heard Seventh sister’s cold voice, and felt a little strange. She tried to open her eyes, but found that her eyes were stinging. She rubbed them, and saw a dim light, followed by Seventh sister’s tense beautiful face.
For some reason, she could read from Seventh sister’s expression that she was suppressing a violent aura.
Qian Wanyu’s hand stopped, and Dongfang Minghui felt a sharp pain in her forehead. Her eyeballs turned slightly, and she saw the top as high as the sky, and many stone pillars stood around, giving people a feeling of emptiness.
She stood up, “Seventh sister, we rushed here last night? I don’t have any memory?!”
After waking up these two days, she felt very strange, she seem to have appeared in other places inexplicably, and it would be even more weird if there was no one around her.
“Tong girl, you forgot, you brought us here last night, and you also made us—”
Qian Wanyu became angry, the anger index from her whole body continued to rise, and the spiritual power in her body was also released, the pressure hitting Jing Ke directly.
Jing Ke was so suppressed by her pressure that he couldn’t move, his hands and feet made intermittent crunching sounds, as if his bones were being torn apart one by one.
Dongfang Minghui stretched out her hand to intercede, but on second thought, no, this Jing Ke must have no good intentions to provoke Seventh sister at this time, but what the other party said was like a key unlocking the doubts in her heart.
She tapped her head, trying to think of something.
Seeing this, Qian Wanyu grabbed her wrist, “Don’t knock, you’re already stupid enough.”
“…” I know stupid but you have to be so brutal, Seventh sister…
Qian Wanyu easily took back the pressure of spiritual power, and Jing Ke fell to his knees on the ground with a thud. His whole body was soaked in sweat, as if he had walked through water.
Dongfang Minghui felt that he deserved it, and after watching it for a bit, she found that there was one person missing, “Seventh sister, where did Mo Ce go?”
Qian Wanyu squinted her eyes, and found it difficult to answer this question for a while.
Jing Ke stood up as if nothing had happened, and wiped off the dust on his knees. His tone towards Qian Wanyu was less respectful and more playful, “My lord, why don’t you tell Ms. Tong the truth, lest she be kept in the dark. Since we came here, isn’t it all thanks to the gift of Tong girl? As for Mo Ce—oh, is he still alive?”
Those blazing sparrows were monsters that live in groups after all.
“Me?” Dongfang Minghui looked surprised, she pointed to her nose, “Seventh sister, what’s wrong with Mo Ce?”
Qian Wanyu didn’t appear very angry, on the contrary, she was in a very good mood. She rubbed her hand on the lightning whip, and the other party seemed a little out of control.
Just when the atmosphere among the three of them was particularly awkward, Mo Ce walked in at a leisurely pace, holding a bunch of fruits that he found from who knows where. He casually put the fruits on his clothes wiped them a bit and delivered them to Qian Wanyu and Dongfang Minghui respectively.
“I just went to pick fruit, do you want me to die so much.” Mo Ce muttered.
“Mo Ce, you are so amazing, you can find fruits in this place?” Dongfang Minghui saw Mo Ce’s eyes light up, and heard Jing Ke’s words just now. She thought something bad had happened yesterday, and it almost scared her to death.
Qian Wanyu breathed a sigh of relief, “Looking at you sleeping soundly yesterday, people from the beast tribe were looking for us everywhere, so I will take you here to hide for a while.”
Dongfang Minghui nodded suddenly while eating the fruit, “So that’s the case.” She didn’t suspect that Seventh sister had lied to her at all.
Mo Ce glanced sideways at Jing Ke, who was looking gloomy, and hummed lightly as if mocking him.
“Looking at your Ninth Sister’s situation, it seems that the Sleepy Dragon Seal was controlling her body.” Qing Mo observed for two days, and found that all this might be the masterpiece of the Sleepy Dragon Seal that they had completely ignored.
“I heard from my mother that the Sleepy Dragon Seal is a living key and has self-awareness, but in the past many years, its consciousness has been incomplete. If it’s controlling the mind of Ninth Sister and bringing us here. Is it trying to tell us something?”
“Sleepy Dragon Valley.”
Qing Mo could only think of the most suitable place for the Sleepy Dragon Seal to act up and that would be Sleepy Dragon Valley being close by.
“Seventh sister, this grotto looks a bit big, do you know where it is?” Dongfang Minghui looked around while eating the fruit. Strange places always gave her a hint of novelty.
“Sleepy Dragon Valley.”
Qian Wanyu said it subconsciously.
Dongfang Minghui froze, and the other half of the fruit fell out of her hands before she had time to gnaw it. She swallowed with some fear, “Seventh sister, are you kidding me?”
Qian Wanyu glanced at Jing Ke indifferently, and the other party retreated to the stone pillar, the shadow covered his expression, “I’m just kidding, Sleepy Dragon Valley is not so easy to find, let alone, I just picked a random place.”
But, in fact, this place was chosen by the Ninth Sister. Would Ninth Sister’s Sleepy Dragon Seal really bring them to the Sleepy Dragon Valley?
Hearing that Seventh sister was joking, Dongfang Minghui was relieved, but looked at everyone suspiciously, always feeling that everyone looked at her a little strangely, she sat silently by the side, communicating with Little Color in the sea of souls, “Little Colour, are they hiding something from me?”
“What Jing Ke said just now is correct. You indeed brought them here. No, it should be said that the Sleepy Dragon Seal brought you all here.” Little Color wanted to get rid of the Sleepy Dragon Seal, but it lacked the ability. It’s just some malicious thing and it even took over the body of Minghui.
Fortunately, at the critical moment, the Sleepy Dragon Seal can still protect itself, otherwise the little friend might have cried waking up to the Blazing Sparrows yesterday.
Dongfang Minghui shivered in fright, “Surely there is something else you haven’t told me?”
“You killed a person the day before yesterday, and yesterday you killed a group of monsters.” Little Color simply explained the result. As for the bloody process, it can be ignored directly.
“Then, what does this have to do with Mo Ce?”
“He almost died.”
Dongfang Minghui glanced at Mo Ce suspiciously. Mo Ce didn’t look like a person who was about to die at all. He ate the fruit with a click, as if he had a special liking for the fruit, with focused and affectionate eyes. He accidentally met her small eyes, and subconsciously thought that the other party wanted to eat some fruit, so he generously threw all the remaining fruit to her, “Here you are.”
“Uh, Mo Ce, are you okay?”
Qian Wanyu approached Dongfang Minghui and whispered, “Ninth Sister, show me the topographical map you drew earlier.”
Dongfang Minghui understood, took out all the stacks of topographic maps in the space, and secretly glanced at Jing Ke who was not far away, and found that the other party’s eyes were not looking at this side, “Seventh sister, don’t lose it.”
These sixty-four topographic maps seem to be unrelated, but they were definitely related.
Before she had time to study, she was tossed half to death by the trapped dragon seal. Thinking of the trapped dragon seal, she suddenly gasped, “Seventh sister, my hands don’t hurt anymore.”
Qian Wanyu took the other party’s hand in front of her and looked carefully. The sleepy dragon seal in her hand was still circulating, but it was indeed calmer than the previous two days. She touched it lightly with her fingers, and the expected burning sensation was also gone.
“Just hold on.”
Dongfang Minghui didn’t know what was happening, so at night, she leaned against the stone pillar and yawned, tilted her head, and soon fell asleep.
“Didn’t I tell you not to sleep?!”
In the sea of souls, even though Little Color was furious, she couldn’t wake up the other party. It was so angry that it almost vomited blood.
After Qian Wanyu looked at the topographical maps one after another, she only saw half of them when the person next to him suddenly woke up and stared into the distance motionlessly.
“Here we go again.” Qing Mo vomited blood silently in the sea of souls, and he suggested maliciously, “Tomorrow, try to lock your Ninth Sister with a chain and see how she runs.”
Qian Wanyu carefully put the stack of papers into her space ring, rubbing her fingers back and forth on the long whip at her waist.
As soon as Dongfang Minghui moved, the three people present all opened their sleepy eyes, looking at each other, and at the same time being on guard all the time.
“My lord, has the Tong girl been possessed by an evil thing?” Jing Ke asked loudly.
If it wasn’t for the wrong timing, Qian Wanyu really wanted to use the soul search method on Jing Ke to find out what was going on in his head, she gave him a cold glance, as if warning him.
Dongfang Minghui ignored them, got up, and went straight out of the crooked part of the grotto. The three people who were following her were almost got lost in the grotto despite the short distance.
After the huge grottoes, there was a wide land.
Although the land was huge, not a single blade of grass grew here. Yellow sand rolled down everywhere on the vast land. The front and back were like two extremes.
Seeing that the distance between the two was getting bigger and bigger, Qian Wanyu threw out her lightning whip, but the tip of the whip was clearly aimed at the opponent’s wrist. When the critical moment came, a gust of wind blew past, and she barely grabbed it.
The wind and sand gathered and started to grow bigger and bigger.
“My lord, the wind and sand is too big, let’s go back first.” Jing Ke walked at the end and seemed to be the first to exhaust himself. In order to resist the wind and sand, he was almost blown away.
Mo Ce took out his sword and waved it, but to his surprise, the wind and sand stuck to his sword, “This wind and sand is a bit strange, it is actually magnetic.”
After his reminder, Qian Wanyu found that the tip of her whip was also covered by wind and sand, so when she aimed at Ninth Sister’s wrist just now it went off course.
A lightning whip clasped her arm, and Little Color took advantage of the opportunity to wrap the whip with vines, dragging her back before the three people quickly disappeared into the wind and sand.
Jing Ke, who was at the end, swooped and missed Mo Ce’s hand and leg. The wind and sand hit again, almost drowning him completely.
When Dongfang Minghui woke up, her head was tilted, one arm was completely stuck in a hole, she was upside down, her feet were still hooked on some vines and her position looked precarious. In this position, she might fall at any time with a broken neck.
There were echoes in the empty place, as if she was the only one left in the whole world.
The bunch of small vines above Little Color’s head became sickly, and it was about to be tossed to death by this partner. Not only did she lead the way right into a ditch, she even cheated the other two people to follow her in!
Behind what Dongfang Minghui couldn’t see, Little Color’s vines split into two strands, tying up two people each like a swing.
Below them was a bottomless abyss, so Dongfang Minghui was well positioned, otherwise the three of them would probably have to feed the monsters in the abyss.
Both Qian Wanyu and Mo Ce were half-hanging in the dark abyss. They probably had the same dark attributes, so they quickly adapted to the darkness. Some monsters below kept jumping up and down in the abyss, just like fleas. There were even some gnawing on the vines. The two vines staggered away from each other, and the long whip and sword swept towards the dark things on the opposite wall.
Little Colour tried hard to lift the two of them up, even urging Dongfang Minghui to save herself.
Dongfang Minghui saw a tree, and tried to communicate with the dry and empty trunk. To Little Color’s surprise, the dry tree was still alive, and it really extended a helping hand to his little friend! The dry branches looked like they would break if anyone broke it lightly so it looked a bit unreliable.
“My arm is stuck.” Dongfang Minghui tugged and tugged, almost breaking her arm. She pushed hard, and the hole that stuck her arm burst. Dongfang Minghui felt that there was an egg in her hand, a fiery red egg.
Thinking of Seventh sister and Mo Ce who were still below, she quickly threw the egg into her space ring. She shook her shoulder, it hurt when she moved, grinning her teeth for a long time, she realized that because her arm was stuck for too long it appears to have be dislocated….
When Qian Wanyu and Mo Ce were pulled up by the Little Color vines, their faces were covered with dense red dots, as if they were disfigured.
“Seventh sister, Mo Ce, are you alright?!”
From Little Colour, she learned that she was the one who was messed up at night again and brought the two of them to such a strange place, so she had an unshirkable responsibility for the two of them to become like this…
Qian Wanyu gritted her teeth from the pain, and there was a little tingling on her face, but seeing Ninth Sister’s arm hanging limp, she seemed to be hurt too, “It’s okay, what’s wrong with your hand?”
Dongfang Minghui stretched out her other hand, and gently touched Qian Wanyu’s face. As a result, the corners of Qian Wanyu’s eyes visibly twitched, and her mouth was broken. “Seventh sister, let me help you look at your face first.”
Damn, Seventh sister’s face was ruined as well, she really wanted to cut off her hand, it was all the fault of Sleepy Dragon Seal!
Sleepy Dragon Seal: “…” I don’t want to bear all the blame.
