"Master…" A beautiful woman was standing in front of the cave entrance with a complicated face. She called out gently.
With her realm, she could immediately sense that there were three corpses in the cave just with one quick glance; she and also knew what had happened to them.
The male with his bare upper body was much stronger than an average person. His body was as hard as steel and was filled with power that could charm many beauties.
"What are you here for?" s.h.i.+Yan's face darkened while his soul consciousness spread out, covering the deserted island. After having realized that it was only YuRou, his face relaxed a little bit, but he was still vigilant and said, "Your Wings Race is now one of the Demon Dwellers' branches. When Demon Dwellers invaded the Snow Dragon Island, perhaps they didn't give you a hard time?"
YuRou revealed a smile and nodded, "Demon Dwellers haven't troubled us indeed."
"How did you find this place?"
"It is not me who found it. It is the three people of Yi TianMo's group. The Snow Dragon Island is not far away from here. Yi TianMo's group and you have a soul connection; they have the ability to join souls. Therefore, within this short distance, as soon as you appeared here, they could already sense you."
"Why are you here then?"
"You still call me Master?"
"Our oath is not that cheap."
s.h.i.+Yan was silent; his eyes glinted with a trace of irony.
"Sigh…" The matriarch of the White Wings Clan, YuRou, slightly released a sigh and sadly said, "After you left, something came up on the Snow Dragon Island. When Demon Dwellers occupied the island, we knew our true ident.i.ty. It turns out that the two races have bonded with Demon Dwellers."
s.h.i.+Yan frowned and quietly looked at her.
"They are a.s.similated..." YuRou let out a sigh once again, "Many pagans have shown their loyalty toward Demon Dwellers after they knew their ident.i.ty, especially when Demon King BoXun appeared and used demon aura covering the entire Snow Dragon Island. Through absorbing the demon aura, many of our pagans realized that their bodies
could adapt well with the aura which helped increase their power significantly."
"BoXun will probably enter the Endless Sea."
"It is his White Bones True Body. However, even if DiShan and I unite, we are not a match. BoXun's mightiness has frightened our two tribes' pagans. After he revealed our ident.i.ty and released demon aura penetrating the Snow Dragon Island, our pagans have benefited a lot from it, and thus, the situation on the island has quickly changed."
s.h.i.+Yan's face slightly changed.
"Although DiShan and I are the patriarch and the matriarch of the Black Wings Clan and the White Wings Clan, we no longer have control of the situation. After realizing the transformation in their bodies, our pagans have considered themselves Demon Dwellers and started having hatred toward humanity. It has been challenging for us to restrain them." YuRou said reluctantly.
"Did you and DiShan gain any benefits from the demon aura?" s.h.i.+Yan's face was sullen, silently sensing for a moment and suddenly sneered, "How come I can feel that you are much stronger than before?"
YuRou nodded, forced a smile and said, "That's right. DiShan and I couldn't resist the enchantment, and thus our strengths have substantially increased. By absorbing demon aura to refine our bodies, we have had a big harvest indeed."
"So, what did you come here for?" s.h.i.+Yan said indifferently.
"I come here to tell you that you shouldn't return to the Snow Dragon Island. The White Bones Truth Body of Demon King BoXun was on the island. You are not his match. Once you appear, he will kill you immediately." YuRou advised s.h.i.+Yan with a heavy face, "Master, your potential is limitless. I think that your achievements in the future will far surpa.s.s those of ChiYan and BoXun. However, before having that ability, you should… We all know how their abilities are now."
s.h.i.+Yan frowned but didn't say anything.
"Leave the Endless Sea. It is too chaotic here. Someone will find you sooner or later." YuRou looked at him and advised, "The fact that we have followed to serve you before actually came from our sincerity. Even after the Demon Dwellers invaded the Snow Dragon Island, we still wanted to find a chance to take our people and leave there. Unfortunately, we have underestimated the power of Demon King BoXun. Currently, all tribes are a.s.similated. We have no other ways."
After a short pause, YuRou continued, "Anyway, we cannot give up our people."
s.h.i.+Yan was stunned and then nodded after a long while. His face regained the calmness while he said indifferently, "You can go. I will remember your good will of coming here to inform me. From now on, you and the Demon Dwellers should get along well. Perhaps it is the best way for you. I understand it."
"Master, please leave Endless Sea. The Corpse Soul Bridge is almost complete. At that time when the three worlds can connect, the Endless Sea's warriors cannot withstand the Demon Dwellers' invasion."
"I will leave but not now," s.h.i.+Yan contemplated a little bit and then beamed a faint smile, "I haven't killed enough."
YuRou was startled and bewilderedly looked at s.h.i.+Yan, feeling his malevolent intent. She then s.h.i.+fted her eyes to the three dead bodies in the cave and was stunned for a moment.
After a long time, YuRou suddenly said, "Master, your murderous intent is too strong. You seem to enjoy the killing. You have fallen in a 'Possessed by the Devil' state…"
s.h.i.+Yan was still calm, shook his head, slightly laughed, and said, "It is an evil way to you, but it is the way of my heart."
YuRou was astonished; her eyes were full of inexplicable suspicion. Her soft body gradually flew up, turned into a white dot, and disappeared into the horizon.
Ten minutes later.
YuRou stopped in the middle of a cl.u.s.ter of white clouds.
DiShan was holding He QingMan in one hand and bowed his head looking at the deserted island below with a cold face.
"I have told him everything." YuRou released a sigh, "According to his att.i.tude when we were talking, he will not go to the Snow Dragon Island, but he will not leave the Endless Sea soon either."
DiShan nodded, "I knew that he would do so."
YuRou was surprised.
DiShan didn't explain anything, s.h.i.+fted his eyes toward He QingMan's gloomily beautiful eyes and said, "He is there right on that deserted island. I can let you go now. You choose the destination for yourself."
"Let me down on that deserted island." He QingMan pondered for a while, and then her eyes suddenly became determined.
"Little girl, it has not been easy for us to protect your life, and you still want to go down there now?" YuRou asked with doubt, "Currently, either Demon Dwellers or Endless Sea warriors are hunting him down. Going with him is not different from finding death."
He QingMan nodded.
DiShan frowned and didn't say anything further. He brought He QingMan down to the island and then flew away with YuRou.
He QingMan stood alone as her graceful body gently s.h.i.+vered. She then suddenly flew away like a burst of breeze.
In front of the cave entrance.
s.h.i.+Yan was indifferently looking ahead.
Not long after that, He QingMan's prominent figure appeared.
s.h.i.+Yan slightly squinted, looking at the beautiful figure that was approaching him. His eyes brightened while he secretly complimented her in his thoughts.
It was unknown when He QingMan had reached the Nirvana Realm, but her Sea of Consciousness had formed, and the aura inside her body was vigorous. The wind sound resounded, howling nonstop around her, producing an impressive momentum.
"What are you doing here?" s.h.i.+Yan grunted and coldly sneered, "You are lucky to be able to survive on the Snow Dragon Island.
Why do you come here? I think you should know my current situation."
"I have survived because DiShan and YuRou have regard for you."
He QingMan quickly dashed toward s.h.i.+Yyan and said with a gloomy face, "I obviously know your current situation."
"So why are you here then?"
"I have nowhere else to go."
s.h.i.+Yan was silent.
"Everyone is dead." He QingMan miserably shook her head and held her face, crying, "All the people of the He family died when Demon Dwellers invaded the Kyara Sea. My father, my brothers, and all of my relatives have all been killed. Our fellows have betrayed us; our houses have been destroyed. In this huge Endless Sea, we have no place to stay. You tell me, what should I do now?"
He QingMan was crying and slowly crouching down. Her shoulder slightly s.h.i.+vered as she looked lonely and helpless.
"How is this related to me?" s.h.i.+Yan looked indifferent without any trace of the slightest sympathy. He didn't agree with her nor comforted her.
LinDa and Xia ShengChuan had been killed right in front of him. The Yang family in the Demon Area probably have more bad things than good things. He didn't know if YangMu's group was still alive in the Chasm Battlefield.
It seemed that there was no good ending for people who were with him. Thus, his originally calm mind had a subtle change.
When he had arrived in the Endless Sea, he had gained a lot but also lost a lot. Watching the people beside him die one by one, he felt regretful at heart. If he hadn't come to the Endless Sea, perhaps all these things would not have happened.
After going through many things, he realized that if he wanted to survive in this world, he had to be stronger than others. Only overriding others would allow him to take control over his fate and not let his beloved ones be bullied.
"I want to take revenge with you." Tears flooded in He QingMan's eyes, but she raised her head stubbornly, looking at him. Her beautiful eyes were full of hatred while she spoke up with a resolute face.
"You are not qualified." s.h.i.+Yan coldly shook his head, refusing.
"Do you remember our bet on the Fire Cloud Island?" He QingMan's face was now covered with tears, but she still strongly said, "As I have told you, if you saved XinYan-jie sister, I would let you see my body. I will fulfill that promise now."
As soon as she had finished her words, her clothes fell on the floor, and her perfect snow white body was exposed under the sun.
