The tremors caused by the two sword energies to the underground cave made the rocks on the cave ceiling to fall down. The cliff walls in the cave were also affected, making rumbling sounds. With much difficulty, Lin Zi Yu pushed his body up to stand firmly from down below. He looked up and saw that the Shadow Night Guards were still entwined with the puppet, Little Short Hair. He shouted: “This place is about to collapse, hurry up and get out!”

On Shi Qi’s side, she crawled out from the fallen rock covered in dirt. She did not know how to use the Teleportation Technique, and she could not fly fast enough. So, I was going to help her, when I suddenly saw a shadow flashing to her side. It was Qin Qian Xian who lifted Shi Qi up to leave. Jiang Wu tried to stop him, intending to use Shi Qi as a hostage. Mo Qing was being unreasonable and released another sword energy that slashed outward. 

This sword energy went vertically like a wall, separating Jiang Wu and Qin Qian Xian. 

Qin Qian Xian lifted the back of Shi Qi’s collar, and teleported up towards the sky. While in mid-air, Shi Qi shouted: “Ah! Hey! Bring the Sect Leader along, too!” 

Even at this time, she still did not forget to worry about me. 

As I looked out through the protective shield that Mo Qing created, I saw that all the rocks outside that fell on me were shattered into smithereens by the force of the shield. As for Mo Qing, he stood before me, without looking back. Just his back was enough to give me a sense of security that others could not give me. 

He did not tell me to leave, nor did I want to leave. 

“Heh.” Jiang Wu, who was forced into a corner, sneered coldly, “As expected from someone who is my senior, your strength should not be underestimated.” 


My attention was grabbed by this word. 

“Who gave you permission to talk nonsense?” Mo Qing asked coldly. Then the surrounding air suddenly increased in pressure. The Wan Jun Sword had the power of ten thousand troops. With its power, it broke the rock next to Jiang Wu and the octahedron sword in his hand. 

Jiang Wu’s face became somewhat unsightly, but he still managed to hold his body upright. 

“You used your puppets to escape twice, this time, let’s see if you can escape again.” After he said that, suddenly there was a muffled sound in the air. I did not feel anything, but this invisible force made Jiang Wu spit out a mouthful of blood. 

As I was standing behind Mo Qing, with the light from the sky up above, I could faintly see traces of wetness on Mo Qing’s robes made of mermaid threads instantly. Just when I was about to take a closer look, off on the sidelines, Little Short Hair Jiang Wu suddenly jumped down and landed beside me. He raised his blade to hack at Mo Qing who was standing in front of the protective shield. Without looking back, Mo Qing lifted his hand and caught Little Short Hair out of thin air. 

The puppet, Little Short Hair, was pulled into Mo Qing’s hand by an invisible force. When Mo Qing exerted the strength in his hand, he wrung the puppet’s neck without hesitation, threw the puppet’s body on the ground, and then stepped over him. 

As the ground trembled, on the other side, Jiang Wu, who was not afraid of death, was still smiling: “Lu Zhao Yao, oh, Lu Zhao Yao. I never thought that you were so important in Li Chen Lan’s heart. Just kidnapping you for a moment, it made him so angry.” 

“There’s a lot more that you wouldn’t expect.” I said coolly, “So, just shut up and go to hell.” 

“Hell, no.” He said, “I still have a secret that I haven’t told you yet…” Before he could finish his words, the force around him increased sharply. The mountainous rocks crumbled, and the red-headed Jiang Wu’s body was instantly squeezed into a mass of minced meat. 

However, right after that, a red astral body soared into the sky. It suddenly flew towards me, and I heard Jiang Wu’s voice echoing in my ear: “Before you, the person that you like is the same as me.” 

As soon as his words faded away, I immediately understood what he meant, and my pupils suddenly constricted. Just when I wanted to ask one more question, Jiang Wu’s red astral body suddenly moved to Mo Qing’s back and entered his body. 

“Mo Qing!” I cried out in surprise. Mo Qing turned his head to look at me. 

“What happened?” 

I stared at him in a daze, his expression was still the same as usual. While Jiang Wu’s mass of bloodied minced meat was quietly spreading over the rocky ground, buried by the falling mountainous rocks from above. 

Mo Qing appeared completely oblivious to Jiang Wu’s words that were breathed into my ears from just a moment ago. 

He did not hear what Jiang Wu said about the two of them being the same species, nor did he hear Jiang Wu telling me, as if he was placing a curse: “If I can’t have you, then I absolutely will never let anyone else have you. This time, do you understand what’s called an inner demon?”

  1. I am happy to hear that your family are better now. I pray that you all continue to be healthy.

    What a wonderful surprise. So MoQing is not the Demon King’s son but a heart demon like Jiang Wu. I wonder how Jiang Wu’s astral body entering MoQing’s will alter his personality. Just when our OTP reconnected something has to happen…
