In that instant, the light pink immortal barrier flashed, like there was a powerful energy clashing against it.
A light blue spiritual energy caught Xi Ying who had been falling into the gates of hell.
She was stunned, but joy flashed in her eyes filled with blood. Her lips slowly called out without any sound at the owner of this spiritual energy, “Ling Xiu——”
Was he here to save her? This was her first time feeling his spiritual energy around her. That spiritual energy was warm, making it very addictive.
Luo Qing Chen slightly pursed her lips and a faint mist appeared over her eyes.
She knew who the light blue spiritual energy belonged to and knew who was behind her.
When she lifted her head, her eyes were cold. Her right fist was tightly clenched and her slender fingers dug into her skin, looking like it hurt a bit.
“Ping pa——” The sound of a barrier shattering filled her ears. The pink immortal barrier shattered like it was made of glass, as dazzling pink light scattered all over the sacrificial altar.
Ling Xiu was standing not far away and seeing the young girl in the pink immortal dress on the altar made his heart skip a beat. The pink spiritual energy surrounding her was like the most dazzling light of the sun. As long as she stood there, she could instantly light up even the darkest nights.
He bit his lip and his eyes had a crystal like glow as all the blood in his body began to boil.
There was no one in this world who could understand his current feelings. This was not just getting back what one has lost, this was a bright flame shining in a dark world of despair.
It was a joy that shook his very soul.
The Sacrificial Spiritual Sword on his back twinkled with a faint blue glow. It was like it could sense the excitement inside him and was like the joy of meeting an acquaintance.
The Sacrificial Spiritual Sword trembled. Without waiting for its master, it flew out at Luo Qing Chen.
The Noble Sound Sword covered in a faint pink light felt the other side’s powerful sword energy before it quickly charged at the Sacrificial Spiritual Sword to block it.
Luo Qing Chen slightly knit her brows. She turned around and gazed at the distant Ling Xiu with emotionless eyes.
In that moment, she suddenly understood what it meant by a glance lasting an eternity. Whether it was as a mortal or the princess, whether she was weak or she had a powerful cultivation like she did now.
In his eyes, she would always be the little girl who charged into the Star Palace.
The two ancient divine swords clashed in the air and the Sacrificial Spiritual Sword twisted itself to pass by the Noble Sound Sword.
It stopped in front of Luo Qing Chen and its blade went down. Its hilt slowly fell onto the belt of Luo Qing Chen’s robe and softly rubbed up against it twice.
Luo Qing Chen raised her right hand and the Noble Sound Sword suddenly stopped. It was only a few millimeters away from Ling Xiu’s throat.
With a gentle breeze, pear flowers were sent flying.
There was also Xi Ying in the air who was wrapped up in his spiritual energy. She didn’t know why he saved her, all she felt was the coldness in her heart.
Luo Qing Chen slightly raised her right hand and the Noble Sound Sword flew back, landing in her hand.
“Today, I will take her life.” She slowly raised the Noble Sound Sword to point at Ling Xiu as she said in a cold voice, “This is what she owes me. If she lives, you will be unrelated to me.”
“Good.” He looked right into her eyes and his lips curled into a faint smile as he said, “But this face can’t go with her.”
After saying this, he jumped into the air. His right hand pulled in the direction of Xi Ying’s face and the sound of flesh being torn grated against everyone’s ears.
“Ah!” With a pitiful wail, the blue spiritual energy around Xi Ying instantly disappeared. She was covered in blood as she fell into hell.
