Accompanying the Phoenix – Chapter 16

Previous Chapter | Project Page | Next Chapter


The dark clouds rumbled. There was no lightning, yet thunderclaps boomed loudly. For this abnormal phenomenon, the people were in a state of panic and anxiety.

Within the Rui Palace, the small room was overflowing with killing intent. Although Chi Rong’s face still held a smile, his hands have already waved open a folding fan. Qing Yan had also already unsheathed his sword. The atmosphere within the chamber was enough to start a battle with a mere dropping of a hair. Both sides knew that if it were to be started, the other party would not be met with mercy due to relationships. The battle will be fought as if it were a war.

“King,” Chi Rong waved his fan, laughing, “You’ve already caused a lot of trouble to the Demon Emperor, making him furious. Now, soldiers are prowling every inch of this world.” He looked at the sickly Xing Yun behind her, “You as the Azure Sky King may be able to preserve your own life, but you definitely cannot save him as well. I hope that King will re-evaluate her own situation and  not act rashly.”

Chen Li paid no attention to him, only slightly leaning her body to turn her head at pale Xing Yun to shoot him a look, speaking, “Are you still alive?’

“Alive,” Xing Yun shook his head, laughing, “But may die soon.”

“You cannot die.” Chen Li’s right hand gripped the Hongying Spear, then roughly, with the sharp edge of the spearpoint, slashed the hollow of her palm. The Hongying Spear absorbed the blood, dazzling light immediately shining.

Qing Yan frowned, about to go forward in an attempt to seize Chen Li. Chen Li waved her left hand, splatters of blood landing 3 foot away in front of Qing Yan. When he stepped foot onto the bloodstain, he felt a red hot glowing flame was cooking him from head to toe! He used his magical power, forcing the flame to scatter. But unexpectedly, the broiling fire only seemed to get hotter! It was as if it had it’s own consciousness as it leaped, going so far as to even attack his 2 eyes. Qing Yan, to protect his eyes, had no choice but to retreat back to the door.

Chen Li spun the Hongying Spear, thrusting it straight into the ground in front of her. One could see the blood on the speartip moved along with the shaft, sliding down as it seeped into the earth. One could only see a golden flash as the blood condensed into a circle around 2 inco Chen Li’s hes wide, surrounding Chen Li. Another one appeared, circling Xing Yun. She then tore off off piece of her robe and bandaged her left hand as she turned to Xing Yun, speaking:

“If I’m here, you cannot die.”

Xing Yun stared at her distractedly, the light behind her twinkling. Yet that dazzling ray couldn’t even be compared to Chen Li’s own vivid aura. It filled all of his sight, never ending, almost even making himself forget………..

Chen Li’s arm looped through his armpit, hauling his body onto her back. Their bodies were pasted together, her body heating his, blood coursing through his internal organs.* Xing Yun’s lips held a seldom seen curve, making it impossible for one to decipher his mood, only pitch black.

“King,” Qing Yan spoke solemnly, “A blood sacrifice technique will harm the soul. The wedding day is near, hopes King will treasure one’s health.”

Chen Li sneered, “If hasn’t, then my feet and hands would’ve been cut off and I would’ve been bound and sent to marriage. This is just a soul wound, what’s to fear?” Her gaze examined the room, although she couldn’t see what was going on outside, she could still sense the general position of the soldiers outside. She wanted to find the direction with the least amount of people to force her way out.

But Qing Yan and Chu Rong both instantly understood what she planned to do. They shared a look with each other- This matter cannot be dragged on any further.

They both waved their weapons, and suddenly, 2 thunderbolts strook the golden circle, making a gap in the magic. Spotting it, the two charged in.

When such powerful supernatural powers collided, the remnants surged into the air, and after a loud boom, the little wing of the house disintegrated into ashes. Before the dust settled down, the dark clouds in the sky revealed themselves. The space was filled with innumerable rays of arrows. It was the pursuing soliders, who were hiding in the clouds and took advantage of the array to attack, magic boosting the arrows.

Among the rain of arrows, a black figure and a red figure lept from the derbis.
