Chapter 24 Mysterious Ice Scales 13
“Ji Yunqing, today in Lin Shuang City you’re going to die…”
A gloomy voice, mixed with the roar of a dragon, came from the sky.
Followed by another rumbling sound, like a muffled thunder in the distance, Ji Yan felt that her eardrum was shaken, and she felt a strong magical energy sweeping over her.
Ji Yunqing narrowly avoided the blow by taking a sharp turn in the air. Encountered the devilish energy his back darkened quickly, and his clothes instantly turned into bursts of smoke and ashes, with blood oozing out.
“Chi Yang!” Ji Yunqing gritted his teeth and said coldly: “If you have the ability , get out of here and fight with me in person!”
Yin Xuezhuo’s demon general? The dragon?
Chi Yang snorted in the darkness, “You’re full of lofty words, who wants to fight with you? You are not qualified yet, and I don’t bother to fight with you.”
Ji Yunqing was choked by him.
Ji Yan: As expected of Yin Xuezhuo’s subordinates, his speech has his style.
She shrank silently. Ji Yunqing rushed towards the direction of the spiritual veins, while Chi Yang chased him all the way, from time to time he made sudden attacks, seeming to want to stop him from rushing over, but he seemed not so attentive. As if he had come here specifically to ruin the scenery.
He also has a mean mouth every once in a while.
Chi Yang: “Ji Yunqing, Where is your beauty? The one you’re holding in your arms doesn’t seem to be your. you’ve found a new one?”
Chi Yang: “Guess where my demon lord is? Do you think you can save the spirit veins?”
Chi Yang: “This Lin shuang city is too remote. I still want to take your Gaodu, but the future is long, so let’s destroy Lin shuang city first.”
Chi Yang: “But to be honest, Lin shuang City is too good to take, could it be you are putting a favor on the demon lord by doing this? ”
Ji Yunqing: “…”
Ji Yunqing: “Get out!”
Even though Ji Yunqing was calm and collected, he was still uncomfortable by Chi Yang’s scattered thoughts. He said “Get out”, at the same time, with a wave of his wide sleeves, the talisman seals at the bottom of the sleeves flew out. It fleed in the direction of Chi Yang, and in an instant, countless fireballs instantly colored the sky in orange.
In a dazzling fire, Ji Yan saw the appearance of Chi Yang clearly.
It’s really…a dragon.
It was a big black dragon, its long tentacles were thicker than her whole body, the black scales were shimmering with silver white cold light, and the pair of golden vertical pupils were icy cold, which made the hair stood upright at first glance.
The moment Chi Yang dodged the attack, Ji Yunqing reversed the direction and continued to accelerate, finally throwing him off.
He flies too fast, if it wasn’t for a systematic setting, Ji Yan would be worried that Yin Xuezhuo would be lost.
In a blink of an eye, they arrived outside the spirit vein.
Feng Liuyun and a few Jianzong disciples had already set up a formation. Countless people were guarding the pattern outside. As soon as Ji Yan entered the formation, she felt an inexplicable sense of oppression that made her feel suffocated.
Fortunately, there was a fragment of mysterious ice scales around her waist, so she could barely support, but her lips were paler.
“This is a spirit return pill(elixir). After you take it, it will gather the spirit roots for a short time, enough for you to get under the spirit veins, and make some simple magic spells to take out the thing inside.” Ji Yunqing took out a pill from his arms and continued: “While you recite the spell, we will immediately drive the magic circle to help you take out the things under the spiritual vein. Once you get the thing, destroy it right away in formation without any hesitation and the reshaping of the spiritual veins will be left to us.”
Ji Yunqing said a lot.
His purpose was to use Ji Yan to destroy the thing under the spiritual veins, and then he would use new things to reform the spiritual veins, and by that time everything would be back to normal.
But Ji Yan’s heart sank.
Back to the spirit pill.
He wants her to take the spirit pill?
Ji Yan wanted to continue to play dumb, but the “Sprit Returning Pill” had appeared too many times in “Wen Dao”.(Q&A)
This was a truly miraculous pill that could instantly restore the strength of the waste to the heyday, and it also allowed ordinary people to grow spiritual roots, yet it’s true magic lay not in its effects but in the consequences after it was taken.
As long as you took this pill, you were definitely doomed to die.
In fact, it was not by a normal means of death, but by bleeding from the seven orifices, gradually losing consciousness, and turning into a pool of blood.
Therefore, in “Wen Dao”, except for those villains who want to squeeze others, the general effect of this medicine was to torture people to death.
In the original text, in order to save Yin Miaorou, Jian Xian Shao Bai finally took this pill to increase his strength, and eventually there were no bones left in his corpse. Afterwards in order to avenge Shao Bai, Yin Miaorou fed Hui Ling Pill to the villains who killed him.
But Ji Yunqing now handed this medicine to her.
In a gentle tone, he coaxed her word by word, to exert her last strength to mend their spiritual veins.
Ji Yan stared at the pill and didn’t move for a while.
Ji Yunqing looked at her with smil. “Yan’er, what’s the matter? Don’t worry, brother is here, nothing will happen.”
Ji Yan looked up at him.
Suddenly, her heart grew cold.
Somehow, she suddenly got reminded of that night, the sky filled with debris as beautiful as a meteor shower, the boy whose legs were scraped, but pulled her in front of him to resist the debris.
She had no malice towards this group of people. Even if she didn’t stop Yin Xuezhuo, nor did she actively want their lives. She was almost strangled to death by Yin Xuezhuo that night, but they still chose this way.
Everyone wanted her to die.
There is no difference between the devil and the person, who cares who is right and who is wrong, who wants to harm whom.
Even if she were to die, she wouldn’t be cheap to these people.
Ji Yan sneered in her heart, without hesitation she took the pill, and swallowed it with her head up.
Soon after, she suddenly felt a hot stream of heat on her body, along with dantian rose quickly, burning the internal organs. Ji Yan raised her hand, and she saw a faint aura surge in her palm.
Ji Yunqing’s eyes flashed slightly.
His smile became more gentle, and he raised his hand to touch Ji Yan’s soft long hair, “Good girl, come on, if you go you can save the entire Lin shuang City, and everyone will be grateful for your kindness.”
Like a gentle enchantment, Ji Yan raised her head blankly.
Ji Yunqing’s smile was really ironic.
It was not the first time that she hated him, but at this moment, she felt sick.
Why does “Ji Yan” have no spiritual roots?
If she hadn’t protected Ji Yunqing from being injured when she was a child, how could she have no spiritual roots and be repeatedly criticized for being a waste for her entire life? Ji Yan repeatedly targeted Yin Miaorou, and Ji Yunqing felt that he had tolerated “Ji Yan”‘s nonsense repeatedly and that he had done his best.
Even giving poison as a last resort was a lie.
Ji Yan suddenly asked Ji Yunqing: “Brother, if I die, will you regret it?”
Ji Yunqing’s eyes flickered, “You won’t die.”
“I just want to know, will you regret it?”
Ji Yunqing frowned, but due to the situation, he temporarily suppressed his impatience, and said in a deep voice: “Yes.”
Ji Yan grinned sweetly at him, revealing a smile that was not a smile at all seeing that Ji Yunqing’s heart sank inexplicably, she didn’t wait for him to speak, turned around and walked towards the spirit veins. As soon as she walked into the black mist, she saw Yin Xuezhuo coming out of the mist. For some reason, tears flowed down uncontrollably.
“Are you so sad? Because he wants to kill you?”
Yin Xuezhuo stood beside her with his sleeves hanging down, watching her crying and laughing, unable to stop tears anyway, his brows frowned and he muttered with disgust. “Do you like Ji Yunqing?”
Ji Yan cried and denied: “I don’t like it!”
Yin Xuezhuo: “If you don’t like it, then why are you crying?”
Ji Yan: “I don’t want to cry… Oh… I’m so angry that’s why i’m crying… Actually, I also want to cry a little bit. That’s Hui Ling Pill, I’m going to die…”
She wept with a runny nose, and looked particularly distressed, so she simply squatted down and wiped her tears with her sleeves.
Yin Xuezhuo looked down at her, his thin lips pursed slightly, revealing a slightly confused expression, which passed away instantly.
He paused, then suddenly whispered: “Actually you can avoid it.”
At the time, he was watching her intently and was even ready to make a move.
As a result, she ate Hui Ling Pill.
He really had never seen someone as stupid as her, even after knowing that Hui Ling pill would kill her, she still ate it.
Ji Yan raised her hand to wipe her tears, then choked up: “But, don’t you want to get your things back? If I don’t eat, you won’t get your things back… You will also be upset to kill me.”
Both sides were dead, she would rather accomplish Yin Xuezhuo than let those people succeed.
“…” Yin Xuezhuo didn’t speak, his dark eyes stared at her fixedly.
He did say that he wanted to kill her. Now when he thought about it, his eyes were a little dazed, and he was speechless.
The black mist around him became thicker and thicker. The wind blew his sleeves up and black hair fluttered behind him. The jade-like face gradually became demonic, as if he felt the familiar breath under the spirit veins beckoning, Yin Xuezhuo lips reddened, and there was a strange glow in the corner of his eyes.
He was losing control, his black eyes were surging, but his hands in his sleeves were tightly clenched, he didn’t look at the spiritual veins behind him, just at Ji Yan.
She was also an abandoned person.
Same as him.
But what if he was abandoned? He was enjoying the pleasure of revenge, and it was great to watch how they hated the sight of him not being killed.
Yin Xuezhuo narrowed his black eyes, a strange smile appeared on the corner of his lips, and a cold grin spread across his face.
“Why bother with them?” He picked her up by the collar, and leaned over to her ear, “Don’t cry, take out the black ice scales below, I will kill them for you.”
His smile instantly became crazy, and he pressed Ji Yan to the edge of the huge pit.
“They don’t want you, but so what I want you.” His words softened, and each word was like a gentle bewitching, “Be my person, you’re not gonna die, and you can live forever with me, isn’t it wonderful?”
She looked at him quietly, and her eyelashes fluttered.
This… seems pretty good too.
Accompany Yin Xuezhuo forever…
Although he always bullied her to play, but he did treat her very well…
She looked blank, her heart seemed to be gradually covered in a dark cloud, and the air became thinner, making her dizzy.
Dazed and confused, I hate to sink into this.
She nodded slowly, and merely whispered. “This… seems not bad, anyway, with you I can live a long life, and no one will bully me…”
“Only I can bully you.” Yin Xuezhuo suddenly moved closed and whispered into her ear, with a gentle tone.
Ji Yan repeated blankly: “Only you…”
Yin Xuezhuo smiled evilly, “It’s only me.”
His cold fingertips slid across her cheeks, his dark eyes gleaming with excitement, and he pulled her to the giant pit, the back of his hand was densely covered with black lines, and his black nails firmly pinched Ji Yan’s shoulder.
He couldn’t wait anymore, the corners of his eyes were red, and the murderous excitement gnawed away at his senses.
Ji Yan raised her hand, a faint spiritual energy poured out from her palm, drawing the things under the spiritual vein.
At the same time, the people outside began to cast spells, and the surrounding magic circle swiftly moved to help her.
A thing gradually flew out from inside.
That was Yin Xuezhuo’s scales.
The thing he lost for more than ten years, finally reappeared in the light today.
The scale floated in the air and gradually flew into Ji Yan’s palm. It was completely dark, but glowed with a blue light, which inexplicably reminded her of the very beautiful butterfly that Yin Xuezhuo raised.
She held his scale and handed it to Yin Xuezhuo.
Yin Xuezhuo’s eyes shone with excitement, the moment his fingers touched the Xuan bing(black icy) scales, all the pent-up demonic energy around him was finally released.
Like a stormy sea, it rushes down, annihilating heaven and earth.
The surrounding sword formation was shattered by this unrestrained blow, and countless demons flocked here.
The only thing Ji Yan could see in close range was a large wing.
It was very large, and Ji Yan could hardly see the edge.
It was a pair of transparent blue wings, like the thin wings of a dragonfly, and like a butterfly’s wings, covered with gorgeous lines, fluttering rapidly at a speed inaccessible to the naked eye.
It was scary at the same time beautiful, with a fatal attraction.
Ji Yan was stunned.
Being so close, she could even see the veins on it. The wings were not covered with setae scales like butterflies, instead they were densely packed with countless, profound ice scales.
The scale returned to its place.
Yin Xuezhuo chuckled in her ear, holding Ji Yan he rose straight into the sky!
Countless screams sounded at the same time, the huge wings rolled with cold wind, and the place where it passed was frozen for thousands of miles.
Ji Yan hugged Yin Xuezhuo’s waist and looked down.
What magic circle, what Jianzong disciple.
At this moment, everything was a mess.
In Yin Xuezhuo’s words, it was just a group of “crowds”.
The little cabbage chicken in Xinshou Village was vulnerable to a full-level boss.
Ji Yan was really shocked.
… Is this the strength of Yin Xuezhuo?
A sword light chased him, and Ji Yunqing quickly slashed him, smashing like thunder.
Yin Xuezhuo dodged sideways and waved his sleeves. Ji Yunqing was forced back several meters, floating in the air, staring at him coldly.
He quickly noticed Ji Yan in Yin Xuezhuo’s arms.
“Ji Yan!” He finally reacted, gritted his teeth fiercely, and said angrily: “I wonder why the formation suddenly collapsed, so you have been lying to me all along?!”
Ji Yan grasped Yin Xuezhuo’s clothes tightly.
Eventually, she couldn’t hold it any more. Taking a deep breath:
“If you can lie to me to take poison, why can’t I lie to you?” Ji Yan sneered and cursed: “Why the f*** don’t you die by yourself, and urging me to die. What kind of blindness did I have before to see you? Asshole get the hell away from me, and go back to your mother’s womb to rebuild!”
Ji Yunqing was stunned by her scolding, “You!”
“Ji Yan, giving you back the spirit pill is only to take out the profound ice scales brother didn’t try to kill you.” He took a deep breath and calmed down quickly, “I am your brother, how can I harm you? I have the antidote for Hui Ling Pill in my hands. I was planning to give you the antidote after everything is done. Would you rather trust this demon than me?”
Ji Yan sneered, “You won’t hurt me?”
Ji Yunqing frowned and continued: “Yan’er, what resentment do you have, let’s talk about it later, it is better for you to follow me now than to follow this demon. No one can survive by his side. If you take refuge in me and kill this demon, I will immediately give you the antidote and bring you back to Gaodu.”
For Hui Ling Pill, there was no antidote.
Even now, he still wants to lie to me?
Ji Yan didn’t want to pay attention to him anymore, so leaned her head in Yin Xuezhuo’s arms and called him: “Yin Xuezhuo.”
“Huh?” Yin Xuezhuo responded lazily.
He seemed to be in a good mood, as he carelessly stroked the top of her hair.
The movements were gentle, like stroking a small pet.
Ji Yan sullenly said: “You kill whoever you want, and help me to take revenge by stabbing the evil men on the other side. If you can’t stab him to death, you can beat him for good.”
Yin Xuezhuo was startled slightly, and soon his corner of mouth raised excitedly, a bloodthirsty light flickering under his eyes.
