Chapter 293: Kill Her
When Weisheng Ji heard Yuan Chu’s cheerful voice, he realised that he was actually unable to turn her down……
He looked at the two mortals who were standing by the fire with sincere imploring looks yet not daring to speak, then he looked at Yuan Chu’s fawning smile. In the past, he would’ve never done something like that, but right now……he unexpectedly agreed.
“I’ll try my best……”
“Ah! Little Ji, thank you!”
When the two men heard this, they rejoiced and kowtowed repeatedly, “Thank you Great Immortal! Thank you Great Immortal!” After this, Yuan Chu got Weisheng Ji to give them some food, which Weisheng Ji had a lot of. The only thing was that those items could’ve been sold for money but he now had to give them away for free. Moreover, looking at Yuan Chu’s attitude on this, he might have to give away more in the future.
Yuan Chu knew what he was thinking when she saw his pained expression, so she moved closer and said with a smile, “Don’t worry, don’t worry. I’ll return all your losses by two fold~!”
She had an idea, saying mischievously, “If you find it embarrassing to ask it from me, you can get it from Uncle Sect Master when you return. Just tell him that I’m the one who said so and he’ll definitely return it to you.”
Weisheng Ji looked at Yuan Chu’s lively expression, looked at how she squatted down beside him, how her body formed a small ball yet her expression was filled with boundless energy like a little sun……and his hands suddenly felt itchy. Elder Yuan Chu’s face looked very soft, he wanted to pinch it……
When Weisheng Ji came to his senses, he promptly shook off those thoughts and he awkwardly looked in another direction, “I’m not that stingy……”
Yuan Chu snorted with laughter, then she stood up and patted his shoulder, “Yeah! You’re not stingy, you just know how to live your life. You’re actually pretty good, there’s many young girls that like your type!”
Weisheng Ji turned slightly red at Yuan Chu’s words that were deviating more and more from the main topic. He then said in all seriousness, “Alright, they’ve finished eating, we should get down to business after finding out more about the situation.”
Yuan Chu saw the two mortal’s excited smiles. She, the messenger of justice will save the world! She felt a little excited just thinking about it.
Meanwhile, Ye Chenyuan came out of the illusion with many more wounds on his body but his gaze was as resolute as ever.
At this moment, he had already reached the flight of white jade steps that led to the dragon throne. It had taken him about a hundred steps to reach here and every step was some kind of test. However, he got through the tests very quickly, so much so that even the voice that was hiding in the dark was clicking his tongue.
“Not bad! You didn’t spare a sideways glance to the peerless beauty and you even remained unmoved by supreme power, are you like that……who was it……the person who came before you who cultivated the Heaven Destroyer? Have you also cut off all human emotions and desires?”
Ye Chenyuan shook his head, “I didn’t.” “That’s strange……” The voice was very curious, “You’re only this big yet you’re already an early stage Nascent Soul. You’re also proficient in medicines, talismans and arrays, and even have some knowledge about refining weapons……your abilities are enough for you to regard the world with disdain yet you don’t have any desires. Aren’t you wasting your life like this?”
Ye Chenyuan pretended not to have heard him as he walked up the steps.
“The man that came here last time, although he’s slightly below you, he had also managed to reach this stage. Aren’t you curious about why he ended up failing?”
Ye Chenyuan ignored him as usual, but that voice came closer and closer until finally, it was as if someone was speaking into his ear.
“Do you have to be so cautious? I can’t guess your thoughts anyway. I’m just curious about whether you have any weaknesses.”
“Hey hey hey, give me a reply!”
Ye Chenyuan ignored him. Finally, step by step, he walked and stood in front of the dragon throne.
At this moment, his clothes were blood-soaked yet it didn’t give people the feeling that he was dirty and he even appeared otherworldly and pure. Behind him was a trail of bloody footsteps that proved his speed in clearing the tests, and how some of them weren’t as easy as he had made them look.
When he saw the divine sword that was stuck into the dragon throne, Ye Chenyuan’s cold look became a little gentler. Master would be very happy if he could obtain the divine sword’s acknowledgement, right?
She had said that he’d be able to obtain it, so how could he let her down?
But the moment he reached out his hand, he suddenly heard an eerie cold voice, “So, your master is your weakness……”
Once this was said, in the next second, the scene transformed in front of Ye Chenyuan’s eyes. There was a sword in his hand and Yuan Chu was standing opposite him.
However, Yuan Chu seemed to have been locked up in some place. She was glancing around but was unable to see him. If Yuan Chu was here, she’d realise that this scene was when she had first arrived in the Mystic Realm of Bones. It had actually been recorded!
“Master!” Ye Chenyuan took a few steps forward, and the sword in his hand became heavier as the noisy voice from before came from it, “Come on, it’s the final test, kill her!” Ye Chenyuan was stunned. An even more infuriating voice came from the pitch-black divine sword, “Do you know why the previous person was unable to obtain my acknowledgement? It’s because I asked him to kill someone but he was unable to do it. I, the Lone Sword, don’t want to follow such an indecisive person!” He let out a ‘hmph’ as he continued to press him, “So hurry up and make your move! This little girl has already been locked up by me, she won’t be able to see you but you can kill her! How is it? As long as you’re willing to truly be alone for a lifetime and pursue the Great Dao with me, I’ll definitely accept you as my master and aid you in ascending.”
He started to regret it once he said this……did he set this last test to be a little too easy? After all, he was the most powerful divine tool and obtaining him was tantamount to obtaining all the hidden treasures that the Empire’s founding Emperor had left behind. There probably weren’t many people who would be able to resist this kind of temptation. What if this person stabbed that little girl to death without a second thought? Would he really have to accept him?
Ye Chenyuan looked at Yuan Chu. Suddenly, the corners of his mouth raised, then he threw away the Lone Sword in his hand.
After discarding the sword, Ye Chenyuan felt a sweetness in his heart as he watched Yuan Chu looking lost as she searched everywhere for someone.
Just now, he hadn’t even been listening to what the divine sword was saying. His full attention had been on Yuan Chu’s lips as she talked to herself. Then, he had read her lips as she said, “Why hasn’t Little Yuan Yuan come to find me yet……”
He was very happy. Was his darling……missing him after being separated for a little while?
Ye Chenyuan was overwhelmed with emotions at this thought and he immediately turned to leave.
With a “whoosh”, the divine sword that was stunned after being thrown to the ground flew in front of Ye Chenyuan and blocked his path.
“Hey, hold on! You’d really rather not have the divine sword than to kill her? I’m the most powerful divine tool! Why don’t you think about it some more?”
He guessed that Ye Chenyuan must be feeling very hesitant right now, and he was probably suffering. Although he was very happy to see Ye Chenyuan’s current expression, he still had to test him. Who knew that Ye Chenyuan would swat him away in annoyance.
