Chapter 235.3: Little Demoness, Really Want To Eat You Up
“I went into the Faint Mist Sect’s forbidden grounds and I heard the roar of a powerful divine beast.”
“The ground suddenly split open after that, and both Lu Ji and I fell underground. It was another world down below and there was a cave down there, where the remnant consciousness of a divine beast, the Crimson Gold Fiery Phoenix resided. I thought that it was trapped in there and had wanted to rescue it, never expecting that it was guarding my mother’s soul fragment that was inside the cave.”
Speaking about that, Qing Yu’s eyes were slightly moist. In the Soul Nourishing Orb held within the palm of her hand, a frail soul fragment lay quietly.
“I did not know why that divine beast trusted me so much. Its consciousness dissipated away when it saw me. After I kept my mother’s soul fragment safely away, I was careless and was surprised by a sneak attack from a man wrapped in black robes. The next thing I knew, I found myself here in this place when I woke up.”
Lou Jun Yao listened in silence, and he came to understand how it all happened.
The divine temple had probably detected the Crimson Gold Fiery Phoenix’s aura and had gone there seeking to capture it. But they had probably not expected the thing that the divine beast had been guarding was not any Heavenly treasure but just a fragment of Aunt Lan’s soul.
Lou Jun Yao laughed softly as he caressed the young lady’s face gently. He then opened his mouth to say: “Do you know why it was guarding Aunt Lan’s soul and why it chose to hand it over to you?”
Qing Yu’s brows furrowed together and she shook her head. “I don’t know.”
“The Crimson Gold Fiery Phoenix was a divine beast Aunt Lan contracted back then and it shared a very deep and close relationship with Aunt Lan. You carry her blood in you and your body carries a tinge of her aura. That is why the Crimson Gold Fiery Phoenix would naturally trust you.” Lou Jun Yao explained slowly.
Qing Yu’s eyes widened up in surprise. “It was….. mother’s contracted divine beast?”
[Such Heaven defying power?]
[Her mother, actually had a divine beast! ?]
[A divine beast!]
And it had looked like the divine creature had come from an extremely pure and noble bloodline of phoenixes, of a highly kingly type.
[Her mother really possessed some great power!]
Undisguised astoundment and worship was showing on the young lady’s face. Lou Jun Yao could not help but laugh. “That is nothing. Aunt Lan was someone that rocked the entire Cloud Heaven back then. Merely possessing one divine beast would not be surprising for a person like her.”
The man’s violet eyes surged turbulently for an instant.
When the day where the one destined by Heaven comes back to life arrives, it will be the day the Divine Temple’s lord and master will change!
“Let me take you away from here first.” Lou Jun Yao pushed back the emotions rising up inside. He carried the young lady up horizontally in his arms, and was about to leave through a dimensional tunnel.
“Wait.” Qing Yu placed her hands on the man’s shoulders and looked at him to say: “I am not ready to leave this place just yet”
