Suddenly, Wood took one stride and arrived behind Qian Wanyu, he stretched out his hand and attacked Qian Wanyu from the back.
Lu Xing was the first to notice the difference and shouted.
Everyone’s attention turned on him only to see that Wood’s eyes were blood-red, looking even more terrifying than before. The tips of his five fingers were opened and stabbed forward just like five giant blades.
“Seventh sister, be careful!”
Qian Wanyu had long thought of Wood as a problem and had been wary of him the whole time. Among the whole team, she was only unfamiliar with this person brought by Lu Xing, especially with what Ninth Sister muttered before that this Wood smelled like an undead.
So early on when the other side launched an attack, she immediately managed to avoid that fatal blow.
“He’s undead.” Li Yunan shouted as several people joined together to launch an attack on him.
With this shout, the seniors who were on the sidelines also woke up. They were completely stunned by the scene before them, there was suddenly infighting among the team that had escaped Return Town, whats more a Dark Spiritual Master, and then an undead, they felt their brains had been fried.
Lu Xing stood in place silently not knowing what to do.
Everyone collectively besieged Wood but his obsessive target was… Qian Wanyu.
“Deal with him carefully.”
Qing Mo had a headache, there were too many changes all of a sudden, amidst these many people some of Wanyu’s skills which should have been hidden as trump cards had to be used to battle. If she continued to hold back she’d be beaten black and blue.
Xian took advantage of the chaos to choke Dongfang Minghui and draw back from the chaos of the battle.
Since she did not know what would happen, Dongfang Minghui did not think that a berserk Wood could be beaten by Seventh Sister, she might have to expose her dark spiritual power and that would be an extremely bad outcome…
Now that they were out of Return Town, she could once again use the plants as her biggest helpers.
Qian Wanyu was slightly anxious, she was watching Dongfang Minghui disappear slowly in front of her eyes by Xian, a furious spiritual power spread around her body. If not for Qing Mo’s reminder she might have not been able to suppress it.
“Qian Wanyu, long time no see.” Ye Feng suddenly appeared in mid-air.
Then Ji Ye also appeared, “Leave this place to us.”
It was the first time the three of them had met since the Inner Academy test, Qian Wanyu could barely recognize them and hadn’t been expecting their presence among the people leading the team from the academy. She hesitated for a moment, but still urged them, “You guys be careful of him.”
The other side was on par with a Spiritual Emperor, no one here was his match, but she remembered this favor in her heart.
“Dongfang Minghui you think I can’t do anything to you just because you escaped?” Xian was full of anger.
Just a moment ago, she was about to take her away but from nowhere vines leapt out and wrapped her hands and feet causing her a lapse in her attention which Dongfang Minghui used to break free and run.
Dongfang Minghui concealed her aura and hid in the grass, not daring to move.
“Dongfang Minghui, if you don’t come out I’ll make sure no grass will ever grow here.” Xian threatened, she actually could not sense the other party’s presence, it was as if the person was no longer here so even she slightly panicked.
“Little Colour, what should I do?” She picked at her hair with some annoyance, if she went out, it would be a death sentence. If she didn’t go out, she would still be caught by Xian when all the plants were swallowed by the aura of death.
The difference was dying early or dying late.
“I think we should just kill her and get it over with.”
Dongfang Minghui thought so as well but she did not know why Seventh sister kept her alive, if they killed her would it spoil Seventh sister’s business?
“She really used the Aura of Death!” Little Colour shouted inside the space ring. Having tried this death qi once, Little Colour never wanted to try it a second time.
“What to do?”
Dongfang Minghui was suddenly tapped on the shoulder and was scared out of her wits, when she looked at the person behind her she was even more dumbfounded, she opened her mouth wide and moved her lips, asking wordlessly, “Lu Xing, why are you here?”
Lu Xing looked frustrated, he still couldn’t accept that Wood was actually an undead. Normally he would obviously express his feelings, but looking at the Wood who was surrounded by people and had red eyes, he felt a little strange… He stood frozen in place and was accidentally pushed over before coming to his sense just in time to see Xian holding Minghui hostage so he snuck over to follow her.
“I’m worried about you.”
Dongfang Minghui was quite touched, looking at his lifeless look, she guessed that him and Wood most likely were in some sort of intimate relationship, she felt that if two people loved each other there was no need to care so much. What’s more, she always felt that Wood’s sudden outburst had a strong relation with the sound that Xian made before.
“Love Flower, do you think there is something that can make one person block out another person’s voice?”
Lu Xing saw a decaying aura spreading over and pulled Dongfang Minghui, “Let’s go.”
When Qian Wanyu arrived, she saw the whole forest was gray and decayed, some grass and trees were all withered, not even a bit of life left, and Xian was screaming and stamping her feet, “Dongfang Minghui even if I have to dig the ground, I will find you!”
Dongfang Minghui and Lu Xing were now crouching in a deep hole, the surrounding plants were rotting away. Listening to the sound of complaints, she had mixed feelings, she always felt like if they did not immediately show themselves it’d be sinful for those plants.
Ninth Sister escaped?
Don’t know why, but when she learned that she had escaped, the corners of Qian Wanyu’s mouth lightly hooked up and her mood was a bit better, the water thunder whip was unceremoniously flung over. Xian was still calculating how to get Dongfang Minghui who was hiding like a turtle. Hearing the sound of wind behind her ears, she dodged a little, but her wrist was still hooked by the whip end leaving a bloody scar as it tore off some flesh.
“Dongfang Wanyu! Heaven gave you a way out but you chose to step into hell! You really think I can’t kill you?!”
“Come try if you can.”
Qian Wanyu was a person of action, the water thunder whip swung above Xian’s head, she added several purple thunderbolts, one after another it shot from the water thunder whip turning it into a bright purple snake of lightning.
“Look at Seventh sister, she seems to be very angry!” In her current state she won’t accidentally kill Xian right?
Dongfang Minghui and Lu Xing remained hidden in the shadows and watched.
“It’s normal to be angry.” Lu Xing thought to himself, if his brother or sister was being held hostage, he would probably be angry too, but everyone probably shows anger in a different way.
Xian’s mouth moved, and soon a sharp sound emerged from her mouth.
Hearing this sound, Lu Xing tentatively emerged from the pit with a large portion of his head.
“Too shameless.” Dongfang Minghui gritted her teeth wanting to rush over and bite Xian to death, unable to fight seventh sister so she invited a helper. Really shameless as usual. She rubbed her fist, moving back and forth in the pit, thinking about what to do.
Lu Xing’s face turned white, he did not want to see Wood and Wanyu fight, but… he could not stop it.
“Wood… why did he become like this?”
Just as his words fell, he saw a figure land in front of Xian, grabbing her collar and dodging the bombardment of the thunder from Minghui’s whip, his speed was so fast that he jumped out of the range of the lightning bombardment in a few moves.
Dongfang Minghui looked straight ahead, the other party was carrying such a heavy iron box behind him but could still dodge so fast.
Seventh sister couldn’t beat him.
Xian gave a command to Wood, her patience with Dongfang Wanyu had come to an end, the other party was too powerful, much more powerful than she had imagined. After only two years of growth, she had grown to this point where even she could not handle her, if she continued to let her grow… she might have created an extremely powerful enemy for herself.
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes turned wide when she saw Wood rushing to Seventh sister and stretching out his hand to grab at her chest. Qian Wanyu resisted but was knocked out with one blow.
This was the first time she’d seen Qian Wanyu spewing out a mouthful of blood, Dongfang Minghui immediately climbed out of the pit, and Lu Xing tried to pull her back but couldn’t, the pit where they were hiding was also exposed by this.
“Seventh sister, how are you doing?”
When Xian saw Dongfang Minghui, she smiled warmly, “If you’re hurt your Seventh sister will definitely come to save you.”
Dongfang Minghui swore for the first time in front of Seventh sister, the image of a meek little rabbit was completely destroyed.
Qian Wanyu showed a cold face and said with some displeasure, “Who told you to come out?”
“I wanted to come out.” As if it was acting like a child, Dongfang Minghui stared at her angrily, but her hand gently caressed the corner of her mouth, wiping the blood her tone softened a few points, “Seventh sister.”
Qian Wanyu couldn’t help it, seeing her pathetic look, she couldn’t seem to get angry, Qian Wanyu reached out her hand to wipe her face stained with ash and mud.
“Are you afraid?”
What is there to be afraid of with the Female Protagonist, even if there is a mountain of fire in front of her, she was not afraid.
Dongfang Minghui’s trust in Seventh sister could be said to be blind, but she never doubted anything since she was the Female Protagonist.
“Wood.” Lu Xing looked at the expressionless Wood standing behind Xian and felt his heart ache, it took him a long time to make Wood show a little reaction to the outside world, the other party always maintained a dead expression but his eyes sometimes showed emotion.
But now Wood with crimson eyes there was not even a hint of emotion.
He was not the same person he knew before…
“Wood this Wood that, ridiculous.” Xian snorted at Lu Xing, then coldly gave an order to Wood, “Kill him.”
A killing tool free of any emotion coudln’t say no even when ordered to kill the person who was close to him.
Wood moved step by step towards Lu Xing, the bottom of his eyes were cold and without the slightest hesitation he was about to strike but Dongfang Minghui immediately stood up amd blocked in front of Lu Xing with her arms open, “No, you cannot kill him.”
Qian Wanyu pulled them together and took several steps back, “You guys run, I’ll deal with him.”
“Want to run? Haha not that easy.” Xian shouted at the side, “Her, I want alive. Everyone else, kill them.”
She pointed at Dongfang Minghui for who she wanted alive. Wood didn’t blink and targeted Qian Wanyu again. Probably in his mind, the most threatening of the three was this person, so the first one to be dealt with was also her.
Dongfang Minghui saw Wood step towards Seventh sister and immediately stood in front of Seventh sister as well as she said fiercely, “What are you looking at, I told you not to hurt Seventh sister or I’ll really get mad.”
Wood’s footsteps turned slightly and rushed towards the unprepared Lu Xing with great speed.
This undead could actually still use the trick of moving the tiger away from the mountain, Dongfang Minghui really wanted to check how high his IQ was.
Lu Xing didn’t dodge when he saw him and watched him just like every time they came face to face, using words to accuse Wood of being rude, violent as well as never talking.
Dongfang Minghui didn’t hesitate to jump in front of Lu Xing when he saw him extend his five-fingered sharp claws.
The imagined pain did not appear and Lu Xing felt a soft embrace, e opened his eyes only to find Dongfang Minghui with a painful face spurting out a mouthful of blood toward him, the scarlet blood completely stunned him.
Wood looked hesitantly at his five fingers, he watched the blood dripping down from Minghui little by little and it got absorbed into his body until the bright red blood completely dissapeared. The blood red in his eyes was suddenly replaced by black but soon became blood red again. Suddenly black pupils and red pupils seemed to be alternating with each other.
Qian Wanyu also did not expect this silly girl to defiantly lunge over and block the fatal blow for Lu Xing. She angrily lashed the water thunder whip at Wood who stood there and didn’t even dodge he just stood there frozen and let her whip him several times.
Xian looked at Wood indifferently and immediately issued another sharp command.
“Minghui, are you okay? Why did you block him for me?” Lu Xing was at a loss for words, he didn’t know what to do.
Dongfang Minghui shook her head to show that she was fine, she tried to move but the big bloody hole in her back made her suck in a breath of pain, “Go and take care of Seventh sister for me, don’t let Wood hurt her.”
“Okay, I will definitely not let him hurt Wanyu,” Lu Xing secretly decided that if Wood wanted Wanyu’s life, it would be impossible unless he stepped over his corpse.
He put Dongfang Minghui against a withered tree trunk, “You stay here and don’t move.”
Qian Wanyu and Wood were fighting again, she got hit many times by Wood but everytime she immediately got up again. Today it was either you kill me, or I kill you, a life or death fight.
“Do not fight!” Lu Xing was anxiously waiting at the side, he then thought of something and immediately rushed towards Xian who was creeping close to Dongfang Minghui, “Hey, what are you doing, don’t touch her.”
Qian Wanyu’s mind wandered and she was blown to the ground by Wood, Wood rushed towards Qian Wanyu’s heart to stab her but she always dodged by just an inch.
“Wanyu! Just use dark spiritual power.” Qing Mo shouted wildly in the sea of souls, when it came to saving her own life, she didn’t need to care whether or not she was recognized as a Dark Spiritual Master.
She already had ten strands of Dark Spiritual Power stored up at her fingertips, and was just about to try the result of Death Qi on an undead, when she felt one person lunge forward.
Lu Xing also did not hesitate to pounce on her, Wood tore down with his claws and stabbed him directly through his chest, the moment his body was penetrated, he felt a extreme pain, now he understood what sort of blow Minghui had blocked for him before.
It really fucking hurts…
The blood sprayed on Wood’s face as he suddenly froze again looking at his hands, his hands stained with Lu Xing’s blood slowly seeped into his skin as well and dissapeared.
The blood red at the bottom of Wood’s eyes also slowly faded, leaving a little hint of it. Now his eyes were mostly black with a hint of red so he looked particularly demonic.
“Wanyu, quickly go to Minghui.” Lu Xing guessed that Xian probably wanted to take advantage of the chaos so that she could take Minghui away. The situation was indeed similar to what he expected, but the process was not quite the same.
Dongfang Minghui laughed when she saw Xian come closer step by step, “So persistent and you won’t even let me get hurt, you’re not in love with me, are you?”
Xian’s mouth hooked up with a bad smile, “In love with you? Probably only that idiot Dongfang Wanyu is blind enough to care about you.”
“Yes, I have Seventh sister already, what do I need so many people to love me for? The most important thing is that you are lonely, you are not satisfied, you just hook up with people everywhere, you’re a loose woman.” Dongfang Minghui leaned against the tree trunk behind her with a face of indifference, the wound on her back was still bleeding, blood was falling drop by drop, no one seemed to notice that as her bright red blood was dripping into the ground, the original decaying tree seemed to have suddenly gained a new lease on life as roots slowly began to grow again.
This Minghui suddenly grew some sharp teeth and a sharp tounge causing Xian to laugh, “Dongfang Minghui, you can only rely on me not daring to kill you. But it does not matter, when your value is gone, I’ll see how you can still be arrogant, after that time I want you to have a life worse than death!”
After saying that, Xian stepped forward and tried to lift her up.
Little Colour’s vines had been laid as they were talking, as soon as Xian made her move, she basically stepped into a trap that Dongfang Minghui had laid out for her.
“Ah, Dongfang Minghui, you-”
She leaned back helplessly, her brave spirit just now was all faked, she actually felt a little dizzy and very weak probably from the blood loss.
Xian couldn’t do anything with these plants wrapping her but when the Qi of Death came out, any plant had to retreat, even these annoying vines were no exception.
“It’s the Qi of Death again.” Little Colour was extremely angry this time and as if unafraid to die slapped Xian a few times, thanks to the pills before specialised in treating the Qi of Death, it could resist it for some time. Now when it saw some vines being stained it just swallowed a pill and continued to attack.
“Why do I seem to hear that voice again.” When Dongfang Minghui’s head was dizzy she vaguely sensed Xian’s weird voice command which was sharp and shrill. After hearing it so many times, she instinctively reacted to it as if there was danger.
Just like now.
She opened her eyes and found herself being carried on her shoulders then she saw a huge iron box. Her brain immediately came back to reality, she looked at the scene of the forest rapidly dissapearing and guessed that she had been taken by Wood.
Xian screamed a few times but Wood did not respond which made her unable to do anything…
How did things come to this?
Little Colour was paralyzed in the space ring, the fat doll was laying on all fours with a look of lifelessness.
“What’s going on?”
“He beat down everyone present and insisted on taking you with him.”
Dongfang Minghui calmed down and asked again, “Where’s Lu Xing?”
Little Colour rolled around in the space ring, “Shouldn’t you be asking how that cultivation furnace of yours is doing?”
The Seventh sister is not a furnace…
Dongfang Minghui sighed, she seemed to have gotten in between Lu Xing and Wood but after that she was not sure what happened, “Seventh sister, will she be okay, she’ll be okay right?”
The vine branch above Little Colour’s head wobbled a bit, the situation was a bit complicated, Xian made that sharp sound again when she realized that her dark spiritual power was not effective on the vines.
After knocking Qian Wanyu down, Wood plucked its vines without saying a word and easily carried Xian with one hand and Dongfang Minghui, who had fallen into unconsciousness with the other before running away.
Dongfang Minghui learned all this from Little Colour’s mouth and had her head hung low feeling emotionally depressed.
Taken away once again… she really didn’t know if she still had any face to look at Seventh sister.
“Will you have mercy you stupid undead!”
The three of them arrived at some place and Wood threw Xian directly to the ground unceremonoisly, causing the other party to wail.
