Many thoughts flashed through Meng Qi’s mind, but in just a moment, her feet had already landed on the ground. She closed her eyes and put all the reluctance behind her. Thankfully enough, her landing place was very precise, next to Sikong Xing and right into the middle of the black wave she used to protect her allies, so accurate that Meng Qi suspected this to be another of Yun Qingyan’s help. Right above her was a wall of flames coming out from the blooming red lotus, maintained by Chu Tianfeng’s great effort to block the snow fang bees.
For thousands of years following the large-scale extermination, no snow fang bees had ever been seen again in Three Thousand Worlds. It was no wonder that Meng Qi didn’t recognize them. On top of that, the books and records said that the bees were around the size of an adult’s fingers, but the ones she saw attacking Sikong Xing and the others were about the size of her palm.
And the poison effect…
Meng Qi watched the battle for a while. Spell lights and sword aura intertwined, mixed with the raging flame and black wave. Yet, Meng Qi still didn’t see the enemies. Well aware of her low cultivation base, Meng Qi was desperate to gather as much information as possible before going to her friend’s aid. Without a solid plan, not only might she be unhelpful, but she could end up dragging them down.
Did Ji Wujiong fall into the Starfallen Sea just like her? Astonishment flashed in Meng Qi’s eyes, and she hurriedly stared at the sky-viewing mirror again. Amidst the terrifying night of the Starfallen Sea, a man in a black robe stood arrogantly at the top of the green mountain peak. The mirror was a bit far, and a mere reflection could not match that of a direct view, making Meng Qi unable to see the man’s face clearly.
Meng Qi frowned slightly. After a while, she forced her eyes shut, and when she opened them again, her gaze had become firm. Meng Qi looked at Yun Qingyan and said strongly, “Sovereign Qingyan, I will definitely come back alive!”
“Meng Qi.” Yun Qingyan said, “You have to think carefully. They don’t need you now. Moreover, after failing to find you for a few days, they probably would just leave on their own.”
“Thank you, Sovereign Qingyan!” Meng Qi hesitated a bit, but still put all the phoenix fruits into the wooden box. She made up her mind. Once she left the Starfallen Sea, she would refine all the fruits into Nirvana Pills and return them to Yun Qingyan.
Meng Qi’s eyes widened suddenly: “Pho-pho-phoenix fruit?!”
“Yes.” Yun Qingyan had just thrown another one into his mouth when he replied casually.
“Phoenix fruit?!” Meng Qi repeated, almost jumping up in fright, “I ate… phoenix fruits?!”
The blue-robed girl sat cross-legged on the white jade platform; her expression was clear and serene. Inside her spiritual sea, a white light slowly revolved around the five spirits cauldron, only one step away from finishing its initial form.
Meng Qi had experience in refining a natal magic weapon. She moved a trace of spiritual sense and controlled her golden core to slowly float over the small cauldron. Threads of white light hung down from the core, slowly covering the cauldron below. Lin Yan’s bamboo slip also flew in the same direction, pouring out another batch of white lights covering the small cauldron completely.
Qin Xiumo opened his eyes and stood up. His fingers flicked slightly, and his natal long sword appeared beside him, gleaming with cold light and emitting a strong sword aura. The sword circled around the rest of the group, who were still meditating to recover their spent aura. Qin Xiumo was protecting his allies, but he was also doing it out of vigilance.
“That’s right.” After listening to the story, another thing came to Sikong Xing’s mind, “Before the battle started, you suddenly said that you had to go to Beyond The Heaven. Have you finished your business?”
Hearing Sikong Xing’s question, Chu Tianfeng and the others also looked over in curiosity.
