Chapter 471: The Woman of Unknown Origin
The cursing power on Ye Yu's leg seemed to sense the power of the Lightning Fire Needle and immediately retreated.
Yun Jiuge continued to use her Holy Power to drive the cursing power out.
The golden Holy Power was like a shark that had entered a fish pond and fiercely drove out the cursing power.
The gray cursing power dribbled outwards and was collected in a large jade bottle by Zi Shang.
After half an hour, the last drop of cursing power on Ye Yu's leg was expelled.
Zi Shang swiftly sealed the jade bottle and then sent Ye Yu back to the coffin.
"Whew, I'm exhausted," Yun Jiuge said and wiped her sweat away. Although she only expelled a little bit of cursing power, it had consumed a lot of her Holy Power.
"Take a break," Zi Shang said. He helped Yun Jiuge to wipe her sweat and then supported her to take a seat.
"Help me check how Ye Yu's doing, and if he's awakened." Yun Jiuge said. She felt a little tired, and her stomach was especially swollen.
"He's been sealed for too long, and won't awake so quickly," Zi Shang answered. With just a brief glance, he understood Ye Yu's current state.
"Then give him a few Spiritual Pills," Yun Jiuge said as she took out a jade bottle and poured out two Vitality Strengthening Pills.
Zi Shang flicked his fingers, and the two pills flew into Ye Yu's mouth.
Before long, Ye Yu's eyelashes started to quiver, and he slowly opened his eyes.
"You've finally woken up. How's it that every time I see you, I'm saving you?" Yun Jiuge said. Hearing her voice, he thought that he was still dreaming.
"Quickly wake up, I've something to ask you," Yun Jiuge said. She saw Ye Yu's confused face and waved in front of him.
"Miss, it's really you," Ye Yu replied with an incredulous look on his face.
"Who else could it be besides me?" Yun Jiuge said, almost rolling her eyes.
She didn't know if Ye Yu was lucky or unfortunate, but he was always like this every time she met him.
"How did you end up here?" Ye Yu said and suddenly sat up from the coffin.
"Don't worry about that. Tell me, what happened to Jun Yichen and Luo Tian?" Yun Jiuge asked. She saw that Ye Yu's lips were cracked and poured him a glass of Spiritual Water.
"They were taken away by someone. Go save them as soon as possible," Ye Yu said hurriedly, before even drinking the Spiritual Water.
"Who were they taken away by?" Yun Jiuge asked.
"I don't know," Ye Yu said, clutching his head with a painful expression on his face.
It turned out that after he had left Yun Jiuge in the Lei Kingdom, he went alone to Shiwan Grand Mountains to find Jun Yichen and Luo Tian. He found that both of them had great improvements in their cultivation levels. Their Legendary Venomous Insects were also highly evolved.
Especially Luo Tian's Xiao Hong, which had evolved into a Parasite King.
Jun Yichen told him that they had discovered a very magical cave.
On the surface, it looked like an ominous place with extremely strong Yin Qi, but there was a cave with strong Spiritual Power in the depths of the valley. This cave was more effective for Cultivation and also extremely beneficial for the Legendary Venomous Insects.
Ye Yu had followed them to cultivate in that cave, and his Cultivation Level did improve by leaps and bounds. Soon, he advanced to the Intermediate Foundation Establishment Stage, and Black Dictator also advanced greatly.
"Later on, the Religious Leader of the Five Poison Sect suddenly built a temple in Empress Mountain, and the Spiritual Power in that cave started to feel amiss, so we made a decision to leave. Because Jun Yichen and Luo Tian's Life's Origin Parasites were still in retreat, they asked me to go out and find another place to live first.
"I went out for a walk and found a new cave. When I returned to the valley, both Jun Yichen and Luo Tian were missing.
"I searched the entire valley but did not find any trace of them, so I wanted to go to Five Poison Sect to take a look. I never thought that I would meet Wu Lan and her sister, who were being attacked. After I saved them, I was struck," Ye Yu explained.
After speaking, Ye Yu drank a mouthful of Spiritual Water before letting out a large sigh. He thought that he was dead for sure.
"Then did you go to Empress Mountain to search?" Yun Jiuge asked again.
"I'd originally planned to go to Five Poison Sect to take a look before going to Empress Mountain, but I became cursed and didn't manage to go," Ye Yu said as he shook his head.
"Think again, did you miss any clues?" Yun Jiuge asked. Otherwise, Jun Yichen wouldn't have asked them to come to find Ye Yu.
Ye Yu thought about it carefully and finally shook his head. He said, "That day, I searched the valley high and low, but there were no clues."
"What about your Legendary Venomous Insect?" Zi Shang suddenly asked.
"You mean Black Dictator? It's here," Ye Yu replied. He reached into his pocket and took out a petrified cocoon and continued sadly, "After I became cursed, Black Dictator wanted to help me expel the poison, but it ended up being turned to stone."
"Let me take a look," Yun Jiuge said. She took the stone cocoon, and after feeling it carefully, found that there were still signs of life. "Black Dictator can still be saved."
"Really?" Ye Yu's eyes lit up as he spoke. He begged, "Miss, please save Black Dictator."
"I was planning to do that anyway," Yun Jiuge replied. She had a feeling that Jun Yichen asked them to find Ye Yu because of Black Dictator.
She calmed her mind and once again used Holy Power on the stone cocoon.
The golden Holy Power stained the thumb-sized stone cocoon.
The cocoon slowly melted away, revealing a round, dark figure.
"Black Dictator!" Ye Yu shouted in surprise.
The dark figure moved, and the head of a big bull emerged, evolving into Black Dictator.
"Master, are you okay?" Black Dictator asked. It tried to fly back to its master's side excitedly but was caught midway by Yun Jiuge. She said, "Black Dictator, I've something to ask you."
"Big sister, it's you," Black Dictator said, looking at Yun Jiuge in a daze.
"Yes, it's me. Did you see anything on the day that Jun Yichen and Luo Tian disappeared?" Yun Jiuge asked, handing a Cherry Pill to Black Dictator.
After Black Dictator swallowed the pill, it immediately became rejuvenated and began to recount carefully, "That day, Master went to look for a new abode. I was accompanying Xiao Ming and Xiao Hong who were cultivating. A woman suddenly appeared in the cave and praised the looks of Xiao Ming and Xiao Hong, saying that she wanted to bring them back for decoration.
Jun Yichen and Lord Luo Tian were not happy with that idea, so they fought with her. But the woman was so powerful that she beat both of them with just one hand.
After that, that woman took Xiao Ming and Xiao Hong and planned to kill their masters.
I don't know what happened, but that woman suddenly said that Xiao Ming and Xiao Hong's masters had a familiar smell on them, and took them away instead."
"Why didn't you tell me?" Ye Yu asked anxiously.
"You didn't ask me either. Besides, that woman was so powerful that you would have died if you went to confront her," replied Black Dictator, feeling wronged. His Master was just too weak.
"Black Dictator, do you remember what that woman was called and how she looked like?" Yun Jiuge had a hunch that this woman was the Nascent Soul Cultivator in the Divine Temple.
