Lady Su's Revenge - Chapter 519
Chapter 519 Immortal of Ghost!
The gray gleam of a sword passed from the snake’s head to the tail. The snake was cleaved in two instantly, and fell to the ground with a snap.
Little Junior Sister Apprentice was missing!
The gray light flashed in Wen Hun’s eyes. He threw away the blood on the transparent blade, and looked up at the huge red snake hovering above his head. The fear in his heart was drowned in anger. He paused and didn’t run away anymore.
“Little Junior Sister Apprentice, I will keep you safe!”
In the thick black fog, Su Li stood in the center with her hair falling on her back like a waterfall, letting the gale blow.
She looked up for a moment and retracted her gaze. Then she lifted up the red snake on the ground with sword, which messed up her hair.
“Black Lotus, what is this?”
Black Lotus showed up, and looked up at the sky instead of the dead snake on the ground. With his eyes filled with rare excitement, he licked lips, “It is the ghost. It is not only a natural enemy, but also a good thing for you.”
Su Li raised her brows and then chuckled, “It seems that it’s also useful to you.”
Black Lotus made no secret of his greed, “I didn’t expect that there are ghosts in this world. It seems that unimaginable sins are hidden in the Qingshui Circle.”
Su Li murmured, and continued to ask questions with interest. Her attitude of disregard seemed to annoy the snake in the sky. It shook its body for a while. Countless red dots fell and turned into dense snakes in mid-air. But they were shredded by an invisible force and turned into blood.
“You can consider it as a poison.”
Seeing Su Li’s concentrative expression, Black Lotus found the feeling of being a teacher in those years. He raised his head with arms akimbo, “This poison is not refined by ordinary toxicants, but is caused by all negative moods of sentient beings, like resentment, hatred, anger and so on. The mortals will die when they touch it, so will ordinary practitioners when they encounter it!”
Upon saying this, Black Lotus turned his eyes. He seemed to look though the black fog, and saw Wen Hun who was struggling in the fog, “This kid is not ordinary. Your efforts to add drugs in three meals to strengthen his physical body is not in vain.”
Su Li pursed her lips, and a trace of pride appeared in her eyes, “I always have sharp eyes.”
Black Lotus rolled his eyes, and said in an annoyed manner, “Take time to eat the ghost, or the kid would be devoured by the ghost.”
Su Li’s eyes condensed slightly and the pure ghost energy flew. The shadow behind her sprang out instantly, and grew up to tens of meters in the wind. Then it opened a big mouth and bit off half of the blood-red body of the huge snake with a snap.
The black fog billowed violently. The exhausted Wen Hun felt that he seemed to encounter a formidable enemy, but he did not recognize the deep fear in the crazy roar.
The evil ghost’s instinctive thought rushed into mind intermittently, and its body continued to swell. It wanted to eat the upper body of the huge snake, but the snake rushed into the mountain immediately and disappeared.
The evil ghost would not let it go, and flied to the mountain to chase it. However, it ran into an extremely firm transparent wall when flying to the boundary between the Sect and the deep mountain.
Lightning flashed and thunder rumbled. The earth trembled and the mountains swayed!
“What’s going on?”
“It’s an earthquake. Get out of the house!”
The disciples in the residence at the foot of the mountain were shocked to come out in a mess.
Wen Hun looked at the dark clouds that suddenly dispersed in the sky with a blank face, and then saw Su Li with the same blank face standing not far away from him.
“Little Junior Sister Apprentice!”
He was anxious, and rushed up to Su Li. He grasped Su Li’s arms tightly, and stared at her face nervously, “Junior Sister Apprentice! Junior Sister Apprentice!”
The little girl earthed to herself, turned her eyes wonderingly, and asked, “Senior Fellow Apprentice, what’s wrong?”
Hearing the words, Wen Hun was relieved, and a bright smile appeared on his pale face. Then he blacked out and fell in front of Su Li.
“This kid is exhausted, though, he still worries about you, an old demon.”
Black Lotus sprang out. Su Li put him on the ground slowly and said, “I am eighteen years old.”
Black Lotus, “…”
“Unconsciously, it has been more than four years since rebirth. Time flies so fast.”
As Su Li muttered to herself, she spread her palms and saw the scorched mark. Then contemplation flashed in her eyes.
“Extreme Yang Fire?”
The evil ghost should suffer a minor injury when it hit the barrier, and her real body was also affected a bit. But it was just skin trauma. After all, even if the evil ghost blew itself up, she would recover within a few months of resting.
Unexpectedly, with her ears moving slightly, Su Li went limp and fell beside Wen Hun.
A moment later, the black-clothed woman with cold face flew over. As soon as she landed, she splayed her fingers slightly to stab at the throat of Su Li on the ground with white nails flickering cool light.
Su Li didn’t move. The black-clothed woman stabbed at her faster, with her eyes full of intention to murder.
With the chilly wind blowing, the woman stopped the long pointed white nails on the surface of Su Li’s snow-white neck, and finally retracted them.
The black-clothed woman straightened up, squinted her eyes, and saw the disciples in a mess at the foot of the mountain. Then she bent over to pick up Su Li and Wen Hun, and flew towards their residences.
Three days later—
Wen Hun woke up and looked at the ceiling of his room. With the last image of his collapse flashing in his eyes, he couldn’t help getting up from the bed and stumbled over the door with a splitting headache. Then he saw Su Li approaching.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice!”
Su Li was dumbfounded. Then she stepped forward to hold the tottering Wen Hun with surprise and joy, and dragged him into the room, “Senior Fellow Apprentice, you awake up. That’s great! Senior Sister Apprentice Yue said you can’t get up yet, and need to rest in bed.”
“I am not so vulnerable.”
Wen Hun smiled. Suddenly, he was taken aback and asked in a nervous tone, “Did Senior Sister Apprentice Yue talk?”
The girl shook her head and pointed to the paper with characters on the table, “Senior Sister Apprentice Yue guards the hall for you.”
Wen Hun breathed a sigh of relief. The Master once told him secretly that if Senior Sister Apprentice Yue spoke one day, he should activate the tactical matrix of the Sect to kill her immediately!
At that time, he was too young to understand it. Now he experienced many strange things, and understood the Master’s instruction, which must be related to those ghosts.
“Since Senior Sister Apprentice Yue guards the hall in person, I could be relieved to wait for the Master to return.”
Wen Hun went back to the bed, and looked a little relaxed. Even a ruddy complexion appeared on his face, which was hard to see.
He felt a little confused. Once he had fought against those ghosts in deep mountain. Every time he exhausted that power, he would feel achy all over his body for several days. The headache was much worse than now. It was like a living hell.
However, this time he consumed much more power than before, though, he felt he was not so fragile.
“Could it be the Erosion Period that Master said before?”
Wen Hun’s complexion was a little pale. He clenched his fists subconsciously.
He was only ninety-eight years old, and it shouldn’t be so. Master clearly said that the Erosion Period would only occur after he was two hundred years old.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice, what’s the matter with you? You look terrible.”
As Su Li said, she also wondered. She cured him out of kindness, but this guy had a grim face, as if he was going to die.
Wen Hun earthed to himself and waved his hands, “Nothing. Maybe I’m too tired.”
Although he didn’t tell the truth, Su Li didn’t force him and leave him alone to have a rest.
Returning to the adytum in her room, Su Li took out the bottles from the universe ring, and frowned slightly, “Is there any problem with the medicine I refined? But that guy indeed recovers well. Well… Just go ahead. I can make adjustment later.”
Three days later, Wen Hun completely recovered. But his expression became more solemn. Whenever he stayed with Su Li, he was in a daze from time to time. No one knew what he was thinking.
Although many cracks appeared on some mountains of the Sect because of the hit of the evil ghost, fortunately, the tactical matrix of the Sect repaired itself, and the disturbance subsided quickly.
After Wen Hun completely recovered, he continued to guard the hall of the Sect, and Senior Sister Apprentice Yue returned to the deep mountain. When she was about to leave, she seemed to be very anxious.
After her figure completely disappeared in the deep mountain, Su Li touched her neck.
She didn’t forget the situation on that day.
She couldn’t sense wrong. “Senior Sister Apprentice Yue” really wanted to kill her at that moment, but stopped for some reason.
In the boring waiting, another few days passed.
Wen Hun changed a lot in the few days. His grim and anxious expression changed into calmness.
“Junior Sister Apprentice.”
The sun was setting and glowed blood red. The cold wind blew the snow.
Su Li patted the snow on her shoulder, and turned her head in confusion, “Senior Fellow Apprentice, what’s the matter?”
Wen Hun showed a gentle smile as he saw her for the first time, “You must keep in mind what I tell you today.”
Su Li frowned since Wen Hun seemed to say his last words. She asked, “Senior Fellow Apprentice, what’s the matter with you? Just say it, I will bear it with you!”
Wen Hun couldn’t help laughing bitterly, “Listen, Master looks very kind. But he can give up everything at critical moments. You…don’t trust him too much.”
Su Li was surprised and blurted out, “Why? Master is very…”
“That’s an illusion.”
Wen Hun interrupted her and touched her cold chest, “If I was not special, he wouldn’t teach me carefully.”
At this moment, Wen Hun suddenly stopped talking and transmitted the sound, “Immortal Cultivation Sect, as its name indicates, raises an immortal! Immortal of Ghost!”
