Chapter 496: Removing Demon Qi to Save A’dai
“There’ll always be a way,” Yin Shili said, feeling feeble. Even he did not believe it himself.
“Yes, there must be a way,” Yun Jiuge encouraged herself. Moreover, Zi Shang was still around. That despicable and unscrupulous guy would always come up with a way at the critical juncture.
Just then, a fluttering sound came from outside the overhanging cliff.
A’dai was trussed up and carried back by the human-bird hybrids, while Zi Shang came back by holding onto A’ze’s leg.
“What happened to A’dai?” Yun Jiuge hurried to the front and saw A’dai looking bruised and swollen-lipped from being beaten up. He had a sad and miserable look.
“He couldn’t stop flying too fast, so I helped him,” said Zi Shang as he jumped to the front of Yun Jiuge.
“You used too much force,” said Yun Jiuge as she viciously stared at Zi Shang. What if he seriously hurt A’dai?
“I know what I’m doing,” replied Zi Shang, who hit A’dai in the places where there was more flesh.
“A’dai, A’dai, do you still recognize me?” Yun Jiuge patted A’dai’s dull and chubby face. When she saw his eyes in a daze, she hastened to open her Spiritual Eye to check him. She was surprised to find that the black and red light in A’dai’s brain had actually reduced by a lot.
“What have you done to him?” Yun Jiuge could not help asking Zi Shang.
“What’s wrong with him?” Zi Shang asked a little nervously. Surely this fat bird could not have been broken by him!
“The Demon Qi in his brain is gone,” said Yun Jiuge. She gave an account of the improvement in A’dai’s condition to get everyone to think about anything unusual that had happened.
Zi Shang thought about it carefully and then shook his head saying, “I didn’t do anything. I just gave him a few punches.” With that, he glanced at the fat A’dai, looking like he was itching to do it again.
“That’s not the reason,” Yun Jiuge decisively dispelled Zi Shang’s wicked intention. She looked at A’ze and Advisor Jun with an inquiring expression.
“His Highness was already like this by the time we caught up,” they said. A’ze, Advisor Jun and the others also indicated that they did not find anything unusual.
“Why don’t you find another human-beast hybrid to compare? Like that human-snake hybrid called Aunt Gaga?” Zi Shang kindly suggested.
“Aunt Gaga’s condition is different from that of A’dai’s. A’dai’s brain has a ball of golden light, which can keep the Demon Qi at bay. Aunt Gaga doesn’t have that,” Yun Jiuge explained, shaking her head. All of a sudden, she had a flash of inspiration in her mind.
That’s right, the golden light in A’dai’s head could tenaciously fight against the Demon Qi when he was outside. Once he entered the Secret Realm, he was more able to directly withstand the Demon Qi and keep it out.
If she could crack the secret of the golden light, then the human-beast hybrids in the Secret Realm would be saved.
“I remember you said before that your prince was the only human-beast hybrid in the Secret Realm who could fully undergo transmutation,” said Yun Jiuge, who suspected that A’dai’s transmutation was related to the golden light.
“Yes, we human-beast hybrids are half humans and half beasts. Only His Highness can switch between beast form and human form at will. He’s been the only one in our Secret Realm for hundreds of years,” Advisor Jun nodded as he spoke. It was the reason why their Eagle Clan was superior to other beast clans.
“Can he still change into a human?” Yun Jiuge asked in surprise.
“Of course, His Highness’s human form is perfect,” Advisor Jun proudly replied.
Yun Jiuge lowered her head to glance at roly-poly A’dai and an image of a fat blob immediately sprang to mind.
But that was not the important part. The focus was still how the golden light in A’dai’s brain was formed.
“After all these years, you still haven’t thought about why Ling Fei can change his form at will?” Yun Jiuge asked.
“This is a skill that God has given His Highness. What’s there to think about?” Advisor Jun answered, looking puzzled. How could they casually speculate about God’s will?
“It’s not God’s will but a matter of physique. It’s likely that A’dai had eaten something that led him to evolve,” said Yun Jiuge. She thought of A’dai’s physique as a glutton and felt that she had uncovered the truth of the matter.
“I don’t know about this. His Royal Highness has always loved to find food everywhere since young. So much so that we could not track him at times,” Advisor Jun said, shaking his head. Things had been difficult within the clan these few years. Even A’dai did not have any preferential treatment as the prince. He could only find his own way if he wanted to eat more.
He was fast, had a good sense, and would often come back with some food after having a full meal.
These foodstuffs were generally offered to Elder Bai to pay his respects.
However, Elder Bai had eaten so much without any signs that he had evolved.
“It looks like we’ve to wake A’dai up.” This meant using too much of the Holy Power.
Yun Jiuge looked to Zi Shang, wanting to ask his opinion.
“Go ahead,” Zi Shang agreed with this. When he rode on A’dai earlier, he also discovered a lot of his special features.
It was more accurate to say A’dai was a Demon rather than a human-beast hybrid.
He did not go through special Cultivation, but his physical body was extremely strong. If he were to cultivate their Demonic Cultivation Technique, he would certainly become a great Demon of his time.
He intended to wait until after A’dai was conscious before examining him. If he were indeed loyal to Yun Jiuge, he could be cultivated properly.
“A’ze, Advisor Jun, take some people and stand guard outside. Ye Zi and Yin Shili will stay on to help me draw up a protective spell to keep him safe from harm. I want to help your Royal Highness resolve the Demon Qi problem in his brain,” Yun Jiuge instructed.
“Yes,” replied Advisor Jun. He immediately flew out of A’dai’s nest with the Eagle Clan warriors. They hid by the overhanging cliff outside.
“What do you need me to do?” Yin Shili asked.
“Have a good rest and try not to use too much power of the Heart of the Heavens and the Earth,” Yun Jiuge said. The Secret Realm would devour Spiritual Power, which was extremely dangerous for Yin Shili.
“Then I’ll try to stay in the state of a Living Corpse during normal circumstances!” Yin Shili said and went to a corner to crouch down.
“Help me draw up a protective spell,” Yun Jiuge said to Zi Shang.
“Don’t worry.” He guaranteed that there would not be a problem with him around.
Yun Jiuge then threw A’dai into his grass nest. After which, she used her palm to press against his Baihui Acupoint. The golden Holy Power surged into it.
In order to wipe out the Demon Qi in A’dai’s brain at one go, she did not hold back at all and imbued all the Holy Power from her body into him.
The black and red Demon Qi scattered in a frenzy all over the place the moment it saw Yun Jiuge’s Holy Power enter. It wanted to follow the Meridians and enter A’dai’s blood.
Yun Jiuge was about to mobilize her Holy Power to seal its escape route when the golden light in A’dai’s brain had already surrounded the black and red Demon Qi. A part of it even rushed over to fuse with her.
Yun Jiuge’s eyes unexpectedly narrowed when she felt the force of A’dai’s golden light. This force and her Holy Power were so similar.
But her Holy Power was incomparably pure from refinement and could be fused with the Holy Soul to become eternally indestructible.
A’dai’s golden light was full of impurities. He merely had power but could not become a god. Even so, it was enough to astonish Yun Jiuge.
If she could also get the power of the golden light, then it would be within reach to restore her Holy Power.
Although she coveted the golden power, she was not so base as to devour A’dai’s power. Now that she had set her mind to the task, she did her utmost to remove the Demon Qi.
A’dai’s golden light acted together with her, and she finally succeeded in completely eliminating the Demon Qi.
Yun Jiuge’s Elixir Field was completely hollowed out. Her body swayed and she almost crumpled to the ground.
