Chapter 07: My God! You Look so Familiar!

Lai Yixin’s reaction was abnormally fast. With one rouse of the spear, he blocked that person’s pike while shouting: “Stop!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
That person didn’t react. He retrieved his pike, withdrew behind the shield and moved to ram Lai Yixin.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
As he approached, Lai Yixin couldn’t help but be shocked. He had already absorbed monster essence and went through Bian Ti. The current him that had already absorbed qixi had reactions and speeds which already far surpassed the ordinary person, but as soon as this person moved, Lai Yixin felt that this person’s speed and strength didn’t seem to be inferior to his. Seeing the other person charge over, Lai Yixin didn’t dare to be careless. He changed the spear from blocking to attacking, rapidly thrusting towards the shield.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
As the spear and the shield came into contact, there was only an oddly loud sound of impact. The other person’s strength was no less than that of Lai Yixin. However, he was in the air after all, after this impact he couldn’t help flying backwards, but Lai Yixin was also pushed back a couple steps.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Can’t you understand words?” Lai Yixin’s grip felt numb, he felt secretly afraid and shouted again: “Stop!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
From the moment that person appeared until now, only a split second had passed. Lai Yixin who received that attack had no choice but to react, however the other people seemed to be in a daze. The first to snap out of it was Ye Weishan. She stared in concentration, then suddenly exclaimed in a loud voice: “Yixin, that’s a monster! It has monster essence.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Monster? Everyone was shocked and looked over closely, couldn’t help but agree with what Ye Weishan said. Even if monster essence wasn’t mentioned, that appearance really didn’t seem human.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
At this moment that person had just reach the ground. He let out a strange cry and suddenly flew forward, charging and leaving the ground at an even greater speed, the pike once again thrusting towards Lai Yixin.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
But halfway there, he suddenly twisted his body, pulling the shield back and drew himself behind the shield. Actually, Zhou and Guo from Li Sect had already simultaneously attacked him with swords. All that could be seen was two people send out two waves of sharp qixi, breaking through the empty air, at the same time slamming into that shield. ‘Pah pah’, two sounds ranged out, then that human-like monster seemed to get angry, and with a leap rushed towards Zhou Huai Yun.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Weishan and you guys should move back.” Lai Yixin found time to turn his head and quickly said: “This tusk monster’s strength is even greater than mine, I can’t defend everything.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Ye Weishan was slightly startled and turned around to urgently pull Chen Luonian and Huang Zongru while saying: “Go where the troops are.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Leader Ye.” Lieutenant Wu anxiously approached and asked: “What is that?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“That’s a monster.” Ye Weishan’s eyes didn’t leave the battlefield and rapidly spoke: “Tell the troops to prepare, if we can’t hold it back, open fire and kill the monster.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Understood.” Lieutenant Wu at once turned around to give instructions. The solders immediately picked up their firearms, but looked with dropped jaws at the battlefield, their expressions incredulous.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
And it’s no wonder they were that way. The movements of the three people and one monster on the field had already surpassed their knowledge of the human speed capacity. Even though they couldn’t see it that clearly, it was obviously way too fast.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Observe carefully, this is Jian Xiu Fraction’s battle tactic.” Ye Weishan’s gaze stayed fixed on the battlefield while saying in a low voice to Chen and Huang: “When they cultivate, they force the congregation type’s inner qi outward, the dispersion type’s outer qi inwards. Over time, naturally both styles can be used, so they’re attack style can be close or long range, variable, but in regards to strength, long distance is inferior to me, close range is inferior to Yixin…… Even though they’re better than me in close range combat, but their defensive strength isn’t enough so when they encounter a powerful close combat enemy they still emphasize dodging, on the other hand, if they encounter a long range opponent they’ll think of ways to get close.”

Jian Xiu is Li Sect’s cultivation style.

Chen Luonian listened to Ye Weishan’s narration as he watched the battle. Sure enough, Zhou and Guo were currently circling the monster. They seemed to be using inner qi and outer qi simultaneously to increase their speed, rapidly moving and surrounding, continuously sending out sword qi to attack from a distance and occasionally quickly closing in to give a sword slash before dodging back again, not engaging in direct battle with the opponent.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
The monster blocked while madly pursuing. After several broken pursuits, the monster seemed to have sense that something wasn’t right and stopped pursuing everywhere and focused on chasing Guo Jia Nian. Like this, Guo Jia Nian had a more and more difficult time, after several close dodges the monster’s pike finally caught up to Guo Jia Nian’s sword, his body being hit with this huge amount of force was sent flying backwards.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
And Lai Yixin had already rushed up. Once he got close, his spear flew forward, speedily stabbing towards the monster while continuously shifting. Though his shifting speed was not greater than that of the monster, and inferior to Zhou and Guo, but his spear strength was formidable so the opponent for a time also couldn’t enter his spear range. But also because his speed was the slowest, the monster’s attack focus shifted once again onto Lai Yixin allowing Zhou and Gou to finally release a breath of relief and to continue their approach and retreat strategy of attack.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Outside the area, Ye Weishan, seeing this couldn’t help but grumble. She pointed her dagger towards the field but didn’t dare to rashly make a move. After all, right now the three were really close to the monster and their movements were really fast, she was not coordinated with the two from the Li Sect so it was really hard to find the right timing to intervene.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
At this time, since there was Lai Yixin to oppose the enemy, Zhou and Guo’s offensive started flowing again. The two rapidly attacked from close up and far away, continuously bothering the monster from the back. Like this they intertwined unceasingly. The monster had to, on one hand block Lai Yixin’s powerful spear, on the other hand had to deal with the two’s ceaseless attacks. As they continued to fight, he suddenly let out a strange roar and an amount of monster essence imploded from within his body out to protect his body. The short pike and long shield simultaneously slashed towards Lai Yixin, in the wake of that he unceasingly roared while commencing one strike after another at Lai Yixin irrationally.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Now he completely ignored Zhou and Gou’s long range outer qi attacks until they approached him to stab, then he would suddenly raise his shield and knocked them far out of the way.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
And the two had no way of competing with the opponent’s strength, after a few times they didn’t dare to approach anymore. Though they were aware that their long range attacks were ineffective, but the two didn’t dare to stop and could only continue firing sword qi with all their power.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
As for Lai Yixin who kept receiving the entire blunt of the monster’s attacks, he became paler and paler. He already knew that his strength was inferior to the opponent and was relying on his spear techniques to skillfully fight, shifting while dispersing the opponent’s strength, but no matter how much he shifted, he still had to protect the direction Ye Weishan and the rest were at. Naturally, he continuously bore quite an amount of pressure, but right now there was no other way so Lai Yixin could only clench his teeth and endure.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
At this moment the sound of air being broken through sounded out, qi arrows shot out one after another and headed straight towards the monster, hitting the monster to the point that it cried out continuously in pain and had to lift the shield to protect its body.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
It turned out that because Zhou and Guo had retreated, Ye Weishan no longer felt hesitation and immediately linked with the dagger, condensing outer qi and forming it into arrows which shot out and drew an arc in the air, bombarding the monster from all sides.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
This qi arrow’s strength was not small, the tusk monster could not afford to ignore Ye Weishan’s attacks and could only ward them off with the shield. However, Ye Weishan’s strength and speed were great, with a right twist, a left point, the wrist only made a slight movement but the resulting shot of qixi attacked a completely different location. If the tusk monster blocked the east he couldn’t deal with the west, suddenly many cracks appeared on his body.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
The monster cried out repeatedly in pain, immediately shifting his attention to Ye Weishan. He suddenly struck out fiercely, wanting to push Lai Yixin out of the way to get revenge on Ye Weishan’ but Lai Yixin also understood that if he moved out of the way, the moment the monster got close Ye Weishan was done for, so, unable to deflect the approaching force, he could only stand firm and receive the opponent’s attack.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Ye Weishan, upon discovering that even she could only cause small wounds, her expression turned more and more grave. She increased her attack speed while thinking ‘oh no’.

’oh no’ as in crap we’re doomed. I really wanted to just put crap but it really didn’t suit Weishan. In Chinese, the saying for like crap kinda translates to messy cake and it’s informal but not as slang as ‘crap’. And I didn’t want to put ‘oh shoot’ because of the unnecessary pun.

And though those soldiers took out firearms and aimed, they didn’t dare to shoot because Lai Yixin and the opponent were too close, it would be troublesome if he accidentally got injured. So everyone aimed and aimed, but didn’t dare to press the trigger.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
As for Zhou and Guo, the two had already retreated with ugly expressions to the outer side. Right now, the monster was using his entire strength to attack Lai Yixin, the protective monster essence had already been attacked to sheds by Ye Weishan so the two people’s attacks were suddenly effective again. Immediately they coordinated with Ye Weishan, continuously shooting out sword qi. Even if they could only cause a small wound, it was still something nevertheless.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
But Lai Yixin was not made of iron. Though the tusk monster was covered with wounds and had blood all over him, his power actually continued to increase until finally, under a massive attack, Lai Yixin staggered, his internal qixi flowed backwards and a mouthful of blood sprayed out as he flew backwards, flipping and tumbling onto the ground.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Yixin!” Ye Weishan was greatly shocked and couldn’t help crying out.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“My God, isn’t it time to run!” As Chen Luonian saw the tusk monster charge over, his brain broke down again and his body automatically moved in front of Ye Weishan to shield her.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
At this time, the soldiers didn’t wait for orders and all started firing, concentrating their attack on the monster but the monster didn’t pay attention at all and had already flashed in front of Chen Luonian, with a jab of the pike, thrusted into Chen Luonian’s chest with one swing tossed him to the shield, then moving the long shield, sliced towards Ye Weishan’s head.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Ye Weishan saw Chen Luonian suddenly move up in front of her, then suddenly fly upwards, following that a large sheet of blood sprayed down and the monster was already right in front of her. She was stupefied for a moment, then with a shriek, all the qixi enveloping her body rushed forth in one huge burst.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
This direct shove actually pushed the monster back several meters. At the same time, the troops shot out rocket artillery and bullets, but this weapons seemed unable to penetrate the monster essence enveloping the monster. Though it continued to push him back, it seemed unable to cause any damage.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
A period of time passed and the firing gradually stopped. Amidst the gunpowder the monster showed a delighted smile. An ominous glint flashed in his eyes and he started walking towards Ye Weishan again.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
In that burst just now, Ye Weishan’s outer qi had been mostly depleted. Right now, all that was left was that her physique was a bit better than ordinary people and she didn’t have any attack power. Watching the monster approach, Ye Weishan’s heart turned cold, she could only close her eyes and wait for death.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Even though they had a bit of dispute, they couldn’t stand to the side and watch this girl die in front of them. Zhou Huai Yun and Guo Jia Nian from the Li Sect moved protectively in front of Ye Weishan at the same time, brandishing their swords like their lives depended on it.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
But the monster didn’t care about those two at all and took a step forward. With a right stab of the pike and a left wave of the shield the two were instantly knocked flying back. Just as he was going to deal with the deathly pale faced Ye Weishan, a rock suddenly hit the monster’s head.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Everyone was shocked, even the monster was a bit surprised. Turning around slowly, he actually saw that not far to the side, Chen Luonian whose stomach wound was still bleeding profusely was currently standing there glaring at him.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Come ah! Huh, you damned toothy monster, why don’t you come!” As Chen Luonian yelled blood was still gushing out. He didn’t know where he got the strength as he picked up another rock and threw it over.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
He’s not dead? Ye Weishan was extremely shocked. That pike just now clearly pierced through Chen Luonian’s stomach. Even if he was lucky and didn’t die, how could he still stand up?
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Being hit twice by the rocks Chen Luonian threw, the monster was of course fine, not even tickled, but he couldn’t help but get angry. Turning away, he started walking towards Chen Luonian.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Damn, what did I just do?  I’m seriously done for! Now Chen Luonian finally started to regret when suddenly, from the west side of the forest came the sound of gusting wind. A loud rumbling sound from far away approached. In the forest flying around randomly was a giant, snow white creature about ten or so meters tall. Like lightening, it rushed into the human crowd as if it were trampling through wood. Opening its jaws, it suddenly bit that tusked monster.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Huh? Chen Luonian was shocked, looking that that giant, snow-white creature…… my god! You look so familiar! Should I say hello?
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
The red eyes of the creature gave Chen Luonian an angry glare, then tapping the ground floated up. With a twist of the body, it flew away with the wind.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
So she knows how to fly? Chen Luonian looked towards the sky in a daze. Suddenly he was attacked with a sharp pain from his stomach. His strength abruptly vanished and he couldn’t stand anymore. His whole body turned soft and he sat down on the floor.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Luonian, you…… are you ok?” Huang Zongru who was hiding to the side trembling just now was the first to rush over.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I don’t know” Chen Luonian was puzzled as well. Just now his stomach was clearly very painful, but right now it seemed a lot better.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Let me see.” A young soldier seeming to be a medic carried the medicine box over and lifted Chen Luonian’s clothes to look at his stomach. Holding a large cotton wad to clean the bloodstain, he saw that the wound didn’t seem to be as deep as they thought.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
This kind of wound doesn’t seem deep enough to go through the body, how could there be an injury on the back? ……he looked at it with suspicion, then also pried apart the clothes on Chen Luonian’s back. As expected, on his back was also a huge mass of blood, but the injury was far smaller than imagined. This soldier medic didn’t understand how this wound on the back was created and puzzled over it as he applied medicine, then used bandages around Chen Luonian to bind his wound. After this, then he allowed several soldier to lift Chen Luonian onto a stretcher and carry him to the truck.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Entering the truck, Chen Luonian discovered that Lai Yixin was also lying on a stretcher and just happened to be aligned side by side with him. Ye Weishan was currently worriedly squatting next to him. When she saw Chen Luonian, she was slightly surprised and stood up as she said: “You…… is your injury ok?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
It was obvious that she had just completely forgotten about him. Chen Luonian yelled at himself silently, couldn’t help but feel it was funny, and could only shake his head and say: “I’m fine. How are you and Yixin?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Yixin only fainted from overexertion and a bit of internal injuries. He’ll be fine after some rest.” Ye Weishan sat next to Chen Luonian and used her handkerchief to wipe the blood off of the corner of Chen Luonian’s mouth, saying with doubt: “If you weren’t heavily injured, why would you spit out blood? Did your lungs get injured?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“My mouth was probably torn.” Chen Luonian said.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Torn…… that…… that monster clearly threw you up……” Ye Weishan apparently became a bit dizzy at this moment. She held her head and said: “Could I have mistakened it?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Probably.”Chen Luonian said.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“That’s right……” Ye Weishan spoke a bit embarrassed: “Thank you for saving me just now.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
If you really were grateful, you wouldn’t have forgotten me! Although this was what Chen Luonian thought inside, on the surface he just shook his head and didn’t say anything.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I’ve never encountered such a strong monster before…… I was too flustered and confused, otherwise it wouldn’t be like this.” Ye Weishan bit her lip: “Sorry, it’s all my fault.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“The monster was strong, how can it be your fault?” Chen Luonian was baffled.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“This monster seemed unable to fly.” Ye Weishan said in a low voice: “I should have used outer qi to fly up in the air to attack. That way, Yixin wouldn’t have had to continuously battle the monster and I also wouldn’t have been in danger…… and wouldn’t have caused you harm.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
My god, so you can actually fly? Then that really was your fault! Chen Luonian rolled his eyes, wanting to complain but seeing Ye Weishan’s expression of sadness and self-blame, really felt it was not the right time to throw stones at someone who already fell down a well, so could only say: “Just remember next time.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“En.” Ye Weishan took a deep breath and returned to her usual expression. She said: “If you’re uncomfortable, call me.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Got it.” Chen Luonian reached out and rubbed his stomach injury, feeling a bit uneasy.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What’s wrong? Does it hurt?” Ye Weishan’s eyes were sharp. Seeing Chen Luonian rub his stomach with his brows knitted could not help asking.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“No.” In Luo Shen quickly said: “It’s nothing.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
In fact, the reason Chen Luonian actually frowned was because——for some reason, it didn’t really hurt anymore.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Chen Luonian was very clear on the fact that the monster’s pike did pierce through his stomach. That time blood mixed with his pulmonary alveolus and caused him to violently cough uncontrollably, and he almost could not breathe. But as time passed, the pain in his stomach constantly decreased. Just now when the soldier medic was examining him, the wound on his back had already shrunk…… If he took off his bandages now, his front wound would probably be smaller as well.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Does he still count as human? Chen Luonian thought about it and then suddenly said: “Weishan.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Yes?” Ye Weishan immediately approached.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I want to ask a question …… after Bian Ti, would injuries heal faster?” Chen Luonian asked.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Of course.” Ye Weishan nodded.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“How much faster?” Chen Luonian asked.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Depends on the kind of injury.” Ye Weishan thought about it and said: “For tendons and muscles, acupuncture points, and blood and vital breath problems, qi can thread them together really fast. But injuries or bone fractures aren’t that fast…… For example, for normal bone fractures, it probably takes around three to five months to heal. For someone who has already gone through Bian Ti and can absorb qi, they still have to spend two, three weeks. Of course, if it is supplemented with some advanced medical treatment, for example surgery or ultrasound therapy, the like, it’ll be even faster.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Two, three weeks?No, his recovery speed wasn’t that slow.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Weishan……” Huang Zongru look ashamed as he said in a low voice:. “I……I’m sorry, I couldn’t help.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“You still haven’t gone through Bian Ti, not being able to help is very normal. Don’t worry about it.” Ye Weishan said, shaking her head.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“That snow white, really beautiful large dog at the end. What was that?” Huang Zongru hesitated to ask: “Is it also a monster? Or is it related to Zong Sect?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“It has nothing to do with us, it’s probably a monster.” Ye Weishan’s expression became serious as she said in a heavy voice: “But this type of monster shouldn’t appear at this sort of time, and why would it help us? That humanoid monster was completely powerless as that large dog monster bit it. If it was attacking us, I’m afraid we would’ve all been eaten.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Calling her a large dog monster? She’ll get mad you know. Chen Luonian secretly stuck out his tongue.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I’ve already gotten in touch. After getting off the mountain, I’ll bring Yixin to the Sect Leader and have the Sect Leader look at him, and I’ll ask about this as well.” Ye Weishan said: “A different ambulance will take Luonian to the hospital. Zongru, would you accompany him there?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Of course, of course.” Huang Zongru said immediately.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I don’t need to go to the hospital.” Chen Luonian quickly said: “I’ll be fine if I just go home and change the dressing.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What nonsense are you saying?” Ye Weishan’s face was slightly severe as she said: “Your whole body is covered with blood, how can you not go to the hospital? We don’t know if that pike had poison on it, you have to go get a full body examination!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Oh…… This beauty seems to be a bit excited. Arguing with her is too troublesome, right now silence is golden. Chen Luonian’s eyes gave a roll, then obediently closed his mouth.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
The military vehicle exited the mountain road and right as it re-entered the northern road, there really were two ambulances waiting below. Everyone said goodbye to the still dazed soldiers, Ye Weishan gave a few more sentences of briefing and the four finally splitted up and entered the two ambulances. As for those youths from the Li Sect, it seems they were embarrassed to talk to them and had already slipped away at some unknown point.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
◇◇◇◇
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
After splitting into different vehicles, when ten or so minutes passed, Chen Luonian opened his mouth and said: “Zongru, is their vehicle still behind us?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“They’re turned into a different road.” Huang Zongru looked outside, then turned back and asked: “What about it?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Then we don’t need to go to the hospital.” Chen Luonian suddenly sat up, scaring the doctor that was sitting at the side. Chen Luonian struggled to squeeze out a smile to that person: “My friend was over worrying. I’m actually fine and I don’t need to go to the hospital.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Eh?” The doctor looked at the blood soaked bandages and clothes on Chen Luonian’s body and his mouth opened wide: “How can you be fine?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“That’s someone else’s blood.” Chen Luonian blabbered nonsense: “I only have a small wound  on me. The person who’s heavily injured is in the other ambulance.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“You should still go in for an examination just in case?” The doctor said worriedly.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“There’s no need.” Chen Luonian’s brows slightly knitted as he said: “I hate going to hospitals. Whatever pledge you need me to sign is fine, let me get off.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Upon seeing this the doctor couldn’t say anymore and notified the driver, letting the two off at Xindian Station.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Finally he doesn’t have to go to the hospital. Chen Luonian gave a relieved sigh. After arriving at the hospital, if it was discovered that his recovery speed was strange, that would not be fun.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Are you really alright?” Huang Zongru, although worried, still quite believed Chen Luonian’s words. Afterall, he was scared to the point that he closed his eyes earlier, he didn’t see with his own eyes the scene in which the monster used his pike to fling Chen Luonian, so he’s also not too clear about how serious Chen Luonian’s injury was.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I’m fine.” Chen Luonian said: “Let’s go home. Where do you live?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Shulin. I’ll send you back to Banqiao first, then change cars to go back.” Huang Zongru shyly smiled and said: “Tianliang and Zhiwen also live in that neighborhood.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Are you guys close friends?” The two brought tickets. As they walked towards the platform, Chen Luonian asked curiously. Huang Zongru’s personality was really too different from those two.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Huang Zongru thought about it before saying: “We’ve known each other for a long time. Sometimes we would…… play together.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Finally getting to Banqiao with great difficulty, after saying goodbye to Huang Zongru and at last getting away from the online gaming world, Chen Luonian walked towards his house with quick steps. When he gets home he would first change out of these bloody clothes, and while at it, check if his stomach wound had actually healed completely.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
After climbing to the fifth floor, Chen Luonian opened the door and hadn’t even turned on the lights yet when he saw a white figure on the sofa, that pair of red eyes were currently staring at him.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Is that her? Why did she become smaller? Chen Luonian closed the door, turned on the light and closely examined that creature. That creature and the snow white giant creature that appeared just now were indeed alike, but smaller. Even counting in the tail, it was only as big as the length of the sofa which seats three people. That head was only slightly bigger than human head and wasn’t as terrifying as before.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Why aren’t you changing into a human?” Chen Luonian studied her. Seeing her pointy ears and long snout she did seem a bit like a fox, but that white fluffy long fur that extended from her neck all the way to the tip of her tail wasn’t very similar to that of foxes.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
The creature gave a low hiss, got up and approached Chen Luonian. When she was only one step away, she suddenly stood up like a person and pushed her front paws onto Chen Luonian’s shoulders and pushed her nose in front of him.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Wh……what is it? Why aren’t you speaking?” Chen Luonian stammered.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
The creature lightly sniffed Chen Luonian’s nose and mouth. Chen Luonian started and quickly opened his mouth while slightly loosening his control over the Hun Dun Yuan Xi. Sure enough, the creature sucked it in forcefully, after sucking away a huge chunk of Hun Dun Yuan Xi she finally let Chen Luonian go, leaped onto the sofa and settled herself down. Then, her body gradually started twisting, shifting. The head area was the first to slowly transform into Huai Zhen’s face, next her body also gradually changed. The limbs that were originally identical in length gradually changed to that of human proportions, that fluffy long tail shrinked and withdrew to somewhere unknown.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Chen Luonian felt more and more off as he watched. The figure of a beautiful naked girl was gradually forming so he ran to the bathroom and grabbed a large bath towel to cover Huai Zhen’s body. But with this, naturally he could not see anymore and he couldn’t help but feel somewhat regretful.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
It seems she could not speak while she was in a nonhuman form. Huai Zhen shot Chen Luonian a glare and still didn’t speak a word until after a while when her arms and legs completely formed, her snow-white hair turned jet black and all the white fur on her body disappeared. Only then did Huai Zhen give a cough and opened her mouth furiously: “You bastard, what the hell did you do?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“You’re a fox spirit, right?” In fact, Chen Luonian always wanted to ask this.

In Chinese myth, fox spirits can be good or bad and some villages have worshipped them and generally take the form of young beautiful girls. But in my exposure to them in most traditional Chinese films, fox spirits are usually evil seductresses that suck the life out of men somehow. It’s also commonly used as a curse like saying ‘you bitch’.

“What fox spirit, you think I’m some little red fox? I’m an Immortal Fox! Also known as a Celestial Fox!” Huai Zhen jumped up and reached out to jostle Chen Luonian’s head.

With this, the towel naturally fluttered due to the wind and Huai Zhen’s enchanting figure became completely visible. Chen Luonian stared and couldn’t help crying out: “God, if you’re really going to let me look then I won’t be polite!” Who’s scared of who? This lady sure is a monster beneath the surface, not the least bit shy.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Huai Zhen gave a humph and picked up the towel to properly secure around her body while saying with a serious face: “You still haven’t answered me. How did you guys summon a Chisel Tooth?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What tooth?” Chen Luonian was startled: “Is it that tusk monster? I don’t know. “
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“You still dare to say you don’t know!” Huai Zhen smacked Chen Luonian’s head again: “It’s impossible for that sort of monster to appear currently. It definitely has something to do with your Yuan Xi.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Is that type really rare? Didn’t it still get swallowed by you in one gulp, doesn’t that mean your appearance is even more strange?” Chen Luonian replied unhappily.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I stayed in the mortal realm and never left!” Huai Zhen said: “Not to mention, showing myself in this kind of environment for the sake of saving you wasted so much of my strength! I didn’t even have the strength left to take on a human form…… and do you know how uncomfortable the transformation process is? And! Changing back to my original form caused the clothes I was wearing at that time to tear. I really liked that outfit, how are you going to compensate me?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
For every complaint, Huai Zhen smacked Chen Luonian’s head once. Cursing the entire way, Chen Luonian’s head was dizzy from being beat around and hurriedly got up out of the way and said: “Stop smacking, I really don’t know what happened. Ah, that’s right, how did you make it right in time to save me?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“That’s right, there’s this too!” Huai Zhen said angrily: “How hateful. Give me your hand, I want to break the vow!” Meanwhile she lifted the ring finger of her left hand.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What’s wrong?” Chen Luonian asked in surprise.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I’ve been cheated!” Huai Zhen said: “The Contract Vow does have to be balanced! Do you still remember the contents of the vow?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Just that I’ll let you freely absorb Yuan Xi, wasn’t it?” Chen Luonian said.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“And there was a phrase after——’until forever’ right?” Huai Zhen said indignantly: “Because the front part was your responsibility, the latter part became my responsibility!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Huh?” Chen Luonian didn’t understand.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“It means that if it doesn’t last until forever, then it’ll count as I violated the contact!” Huai Zhen’s anger burst out: “I was perfectly fine and cultivating when suddenly the Blood Ice Ring transformed into ice needles and started piercing my heart. I almost died from the pain, so I could only rush from the mountains to find you! And as expected you were currently seeking death! I almost died because of you!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I didn’t know it would be like this ah. Until forever?” Chen Luonian still didn’t quite understand: “Then what if I die from old age?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Who cares why you die? As long as you allow me to have access to the Yuan Xi, if it doesn’t reach until forever it’ll all became my fault. Like this one day it’ll definitely kill me. Why should I accompany a short-lived human like you to die?” Huai Zhen said: “Hurry, break the contract first then we’ll talk about establishing another new balanced vow.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Chen Luonian had no other choice and could only extend his hand and say: “How do I break it?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Have both hands facing each other, the vow fingers lightly touching…… What did you stick this thing on for?” Huai Zhen tore off the band-aid in one stroke while continuing: “Repeat after me——matters fickle, hearts change, fates extinct, contract break.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
After the two finished, Huai Zhen murmured some incantation, and then a surge of soft power slowly floated out from the two rings. Huai Zhen hurriedly lowered her head to inspect it, but immediately cried: “Why didn’t it cancel?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Chen Luonian looked and the Blood Ice Ring was indeed still on his hand.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Why!” Huai Zhen stared at Chen Luonian: “You must have not truly wanted to cancel it, right?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Huh?” Chen Luonian was stunned for a moment, before saying: “I did.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Then why is it still here?” Huai Zhen said angrily.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Maybe……” Chen Luonian thought about it, and scratched his head: “My heart faintly thought that leaving this Contract Vow isn’t so bad.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“That won’t do!” Huai Zhen’s eyes widened as she grabbed Chen Luonian’s shoulders and shook him: “There can’t be a single trace of reluctance in your heart. Come on, one more time.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Alright……”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
So like this, the two repeated it seven, eight times, but didn’t succeed a single time. Huai Zhen exhausted her patience and abruptly reached out to clutch Chen Luonian’s neck: “You stinking brat, you really want to cause my death, don’t you?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Uh……” Chen Luonian was choked to the point that he started gagging. His face turned red, soon he’s run out of air. The temperature of the ring on Huai Zhen’s finger suddenly drops, apparently about to flare up again. She started and released Chen Luonian’s neck, the covered her face as she cried: “How can you do this! Scoundrel!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I’m not…… cough cough…… I’m not doing it on purpose.” Chen Luonian rubbed his throat: “Give me some time, I’ll try to make myself as sincere as possible.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I have to preserve your life forever. How could you be sincere in giving up something so good as this?” Huai Zhen sobbed.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Now that you mention it, you’re right. No wonder it’s so hard.” Chen Luonian looked at Huai Zhen as he said: “But why do I feel like you’re fake crying?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Huai Zhen froze, recalled that the opponent’s body harbored the Hun Duan Yuan Xi so charm techniques were ineffective and could only lower her hands to glare at Chen Luonian. She placed her hands on her hips as she said: “Hateful, I can’t trick you. In any case, you’re a scoundrel!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Alright, let’s put this aside for now.” Chen Luonian felt a headache: “I’m sincere, I’ll do my best to give up on the contract vow. You explain how that whatever tooth thing appeared first.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What tooth! Chisel Tooth! I still have to ask you about that. What the hell did you guys do? How did you guys end up provoking a Chisel Tooth? Answer me in complete detail!” Huai Zhen spoke while glaring.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
So Chen Luonian could only narrate the entire night’s happenings again. When he got to the part when the two from Li Sect in addition to Ye Weishan couldn’t open the portal and the bit where he kindheartedly helped give them a leg up Huai Zhen’s hand smacked over again: “You imbecile!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What is it again!” Earlier at least there were reasons, but this time he was just thoughtlessly knocked around. Chen Luonian finally got angry and loudly shouted: “It hurts you know! You damned white furred dog monster!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What did you say? Seeking death!?” Huai Zhen lunged forward, pushing Chen Luonian down and pressed on his body clutching his throat again, but the Blood Ice Ring reacted again. Huai Zhen started and angrily released him, jumping up as she cursed: “Bastard.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Shit!” Chen Luonian got up as he swore: “If you want to kill me do it more refreshingly.”

Like give me a quick painless death.

“If I can kill you would I still need to pick the days?” Huai Zhen said as she glowered: “You actually dare to swear at me. You’re bullying me because I can’t touch you, you scoundrel!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“If you didn’t hit me around what would I swear at you for?” Chen Luonian glared back: “Who is actually bullying who?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Huai Zhen gave it a thought and also calmed down. Pouting, she said: “So I won’t hit you, you also can’t swear at me.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Whatever.” Chen Luonian gave a humph: “Where did I get to earlier? Why did you get angry?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Stupid…… If portals could usually be opened and that time it suddenly couldn’t open then it means there’s a problem. You actually used Yuan Xi to join in the mess, of course I got angry.” Huai Zhen finished scolding, then suddenly thought of something and smiled: “A human like you actually dare to argue with me, this is actually a bit amusing.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What, no one ever argued with you before?” After Chen Luonian finished speaking he suddenly recalled that weird Enrapture thing Huai Zhen’s body had. Perhaps there really was no one that would argue with her.

Our protagonist was only one character off from remembering the correct name this time. Instead of ‘Aura of Enrapture’ he called it ‘Strange Aura Enrapture’, the ‘of’ was replaced with ‘strange’.

Huai Zhen didn’t reply to this and only continued the earlier topic: “You said they’ve already caught monsters there multiple times?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Yeah.” Chen Luonian nodded.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“The fact that that place will have a channel on full moon nights may have already been noticed.” Huai Zhen said: “That Chisel Tooth perhaps happened to wake up and his interest was aroused, so he guarded that channel, wanting to get a headstart into the human world. Idiot.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Is the idiot cursing at him or at the Chisel Tooth? Chen Luonian wasn’t sure and thought it was best to stay silent.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Huai Zhen continued: “Because he drove away all the other small monsters, the channel opened using those three’s combined strength had no way of allowing a Chisel Tooth which had comparatively large amount of monster essence through. Originally this was fine……”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Oh……” Chen Luonian said: “So because I……”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“That’s right!” Huai Zhen wanted to hit someone again. Her hand had just lifted when she saw Chen Luonian had already started glaring. She couldn’t help smiling and lowered her hand: “You idiot. The random dispersing of Hun Dun Yuan Xi already opens small channels, what’s more you concentrated it then sent it out? Were you looking to die?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I won’t dare anymore.” Chen Luonian rubbed his stomach: “My wound healed really quick. Do you know why?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Hun Dun Yuan Xi is the purest Primary Fundamental Life Force, to have your recovery strength be strong is nothing strange. Huai Zhen said: “Unless you receive a fatal injury, you probably won’t die easily……”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What counts as a fatal injury?” Chen Luonian asked: “Being beheaded? Or having my heart gouged out? The injury I received earlier…… in fact was already pretty fatal.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Anyways you probably had life threatening danger, otherwise the Blood Ice Ring wouldn’t react.” Huai Zhen suddenly got mad and glared: “I’m not the one that got his spirit exchanged by the Phoenix! Who would know this much?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Well……” Looks like she recalled the incident when she was cheated by him. Chen Luonian gave a cough: “I’ll go change, how about you? It’s not like you can wear a bath towel out, do you want me to give you some of my clothes?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Whatever!” Huai Zhen was currently pissed and gave a humph: “You humans, degenerating your fur until you have to find clothes to wear, then in the end dictated that everyone must wear clothes all the time. Seriously unfathomable.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Yes, yes……” Chen Luonian half-heartedly replied as he walked into his room. He first removed his bloody shirt, took of the bandage, then wiped away the bloodstains. Sure enough, even the wound on his chest had already closed, only leaving behind a long scar. Chen Luonian rubbed his stomach, although the insides still ached dully, but it couldn’t really be seen on the surface.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Hey! Brat, don’t get one that wraps too tightly.” Huai Zhen shouted from the living room: “I don’t like pants!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Don’t look for trouble! Where would there be a dress in my house?” Chen Luonian shouted towards the outside: “I’ll just look for a looser one. After you leave switch to one you like yourself.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Leave? I’m not leaving anymore!” Huai Zhen yelled: “Before the contract vow disappears, I must look after you, this idiot! In order to avoid being killed because of you!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Hah?” Chen Luonian cried: “What do you mean by not leaving? Where are you planning to live? My house doesn’t have any unnecessary rooms.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Do I care! I’m staying at your house! Ah…… ah…… um……. Luonian…… come here a second.” Huai Zhen’s voice suddenly became three times smaller and much gentler.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Why did she suddenly turn polite and started calling his name? Just now wasn’t she continuously rotating through “imbecile, idiot, stinking brat”? Chen Luonian poked his head out and in shock, the clothes he was holding in his hands all dropped onto the ground.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Currently at the wide open entrance door, Uncle Shen Shangshan and four young guys and girls were holding bags of beer and snacks. The crowd stood at the door, currently staring blankly at the beautiful naked Huai Zhen who was wrapped in a towel.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Chen Shangshan’s gaze shifted from Huai Zhen to Chen Luonian. Seeing his naked upper body, Chen Shangshan took a deep breath, gave two dry coughs and said: “This…… We’ll come back in five minutes.” While holding his forehead, he closed the iron door again.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Damn, I’m finished…… Chen Luonian’s jaw dropped. This time how is he supposed to explain?
