Sikong Xing’s shoulder trembled a few times: “Did you learn that from a member of the white tiger clan… no!” She shook her head and said, “As far as I know, that array and killing formation is the clan’s great secret that can only be used by the White Tiger Sovereign.”
Meng Qi: “???”
Sikong Xing added: “The whereabouts of His Majesty are unknown, and he has not been seen in public for a few months. The members of the royal clans who harbored ambitions to become a Demon Monarch have become more courageous as a result. They are currently blocking all the entrances to the Starfallen Sea.”
“That’s why, Meng Qiqi…” She grabbed Meng Qi’s hand, “I asked my father, but he said it is difficult to enter or leave the Starfallen Sea from the Demon Realm now. Anyone who does so must have the consent of the clan leaders of the three royal clans besides the white tiger clan.”
Sikong Xing suddenly gasped and covered her mouth with her hand: “Ah! This pastry is delicious. Meng Qiqi, you should try it.” It was a bit too late, but she actually shouldn’t tell Meng Qi about this.
“…” Meng Qi instantly understood what was happening. It seemed that her friends still didn’t believe that she was perfectly safe now. She was not in a hurry to leave the Starfallen Sea, yet Sikong Xing was busy gathering information for her and even told her insider information that was considered the secret of the Demon Realm.
Meng Qi was very grateful: “Thank you, Xingxing. But for now I…”
Before Meng Qi could finish her words, the private room door opened again. This time, Su Junmo, Chu Tianfeng, and the others walked in. They all seemed surprised to find that Meng Qi was also there.
Meng Qi was helpless. She turned at Su Junmo and the others and said: “I should have known.”
“Meng Qiqi.” Su Junmo frowned. Knowing that they couldn’t hide it anymore, he simply sat down in front of Meng Qi with a serious expression, “We have decided to form an elite team to break into the Starfallen Sea from the Western Realm’s entrance.”
“Huh?” Before Meng Qi could react, Sikong Xing’s eyes lit up first, “When to depart? I’m going too!” She took separate action with Su Junmo yesterday, so this was news for her too.
“This evening.” Su Junmo answered, “In addition to me, Chu Tianfeng, and Qin Xiumo, Xue Chengxuan from the Xue clan will join too. On top of that, the junior brother of the Xingluo Pavilion Master Xu Zijun, whose swordsmanship is second only to Pavilion Master Pei himself, will also come. Xue Clan has also agreed to contact various sword and spell sects throughout the four realms to gather more people, and it is expected that a team of about 20 people will be gathered just before the departure time.” As Su Junmo spoke, he took out a piece of blank paper and quickly drew the map of the Starfallen Sea according to the information they had gathered so far.
“Meng Qiqi, if your place is safe, stay there and wait until we find you and bring you back.”
“Don’t worry.” Su Junmo assured her, “I also have a group of elite subordinates I can deploy, and they will be included in our manpower.”
“Meng Qiqi!” The black-robed Chu Tianfeng sat down beside Meng Qi and interrupted her anxiously, “No buts! Don’t worry. Just stay where you are, and we will definitely find you.”
Meng Qi frowned: “I am now…”
“Meng Qi.” Qin Xiumo, who was usually silent, raised his jaw slightly and said, “Don’t run around and don’t try to save people even if you meet one. The Starfallen Sea is extremely dangerous, and you are just a Golden Core cultivator. Just focus on protecting your life.”
“Yes!” Chu Tianfeng exchanged glances with Qin Xiumo — both of them saw the worry in each other’s eyes. The young man then turned his head and warned Meng Qi with an unprecedented graveness: “Qin Xiumo is right. That’s the Starfallen Sea, so you must focus on yourself first. Your own life is more important than anything else!”
“Meng Qiqi.” Xue Jinwen smiled, “Don’t worry. This time, the Xue clan will provide a lot of medicinal support. In addition to my elder brother, two elders with sixth-rank medical cultivation will also join the group.” She walked to Meng Qi’s side, bent down, and hugged her shoulders: “My cultivation base and medical ability are far inferior to my brother, so I cannot accompany them to pick you up, but I believe that my brother will do his best to take you out of the Starfallen Sea.”
Meng Qi was stunned: “I…”
“Ah, right.” Xue Jinwen smiled, “My brother said that his blood moon is with you. This blood moon is the treasure of the Xue Clan and has been worn on his body since he was a child.” She said again, “Meng Qiqi, if you wear the blood moon on your body and pour a small amount of spiritual aura into it, my brother will be able to detect your location.”
“Fellow Daoist Xue doesn’t need to…”
“Enough.” Su Junmo waved his hand, “Meng Qiqi, you should remember two points for the time being. First, put the blood moon on your body and never let it go. Second, protect yourself. Don’t run away, and stay in that safe place until we come.”
Meng Qi: “…”
She felt helpless. Since Su Junmo and the others arrived, she had been interrupted continuously and couldn’t even say a complete sentence until now.
“Su Junmo.” Meng Qi took a deep breath and said, “I have something to say.”
“Speak.” Su Junmo raised his jaw at her, “Be quick. We still have to prepare for tonight’s departure.”
Meng Qi pursed her lips: “Su Junmo, I’m not planning to leave Starfallen Sea yet, so you guys shouldn’t come.”
Su Junmo was stunned for a moment, then turned to exchange glances with Xue Jinwen and the others hurriedly.
Meng Qi continued: “Starfallen Sea… is actually not as dangerous as we thought. I’m fine and safe now. There are some rare natural treasures only available there that are very useful for me, so I don’t plan to leave for the time being. ”
“…” Su Junmo cast a glance again at the rest of the group before turning back to Meng Qi and said, “Meng Qiqi, you don’t have to worry about us. We won’t act recklessly and will naturally be fully prepared before entering the Starfallen Sea.”
“I’m really fine and safe.” Meng Qi deeply regretted it. Sure enough, their quick acceptance yesterday was just an act to appease her, but they actually still decided to enter the Starfallen Sea.
Meng Qi stood up and bowed to her friends: “The place where I am currently staying is perfectly safe, so you guys don’t have to worry. Please do not risk entering the Starfallen Sea for me. When I find everything that I need, I will naturally leave on my own.”
Su Junmo gave Meng Qi a deep gaze in silence. Next to him, Xue Jinwen sighed. Her eyes drooped slightly, as if she couldn’t bear seeing the anxious look on Meng Qi’s face. Chu Tianfeng and Qin Xiumo looked at each other, and both of them smiled helplessly.
“Meng Qiqi.” Su Junmo said gravely, “I know you are worried about our safety. But please rest assured and believe that we will be fine.”
“I don’t mean that!” Meng Qi was very helpless. She couldn’t say anything about Yun Qingyan, so her explanation sounded no more than weak excuses. “I’m really okay now! I’m safe!” Meng Qi took a deep breath to make herself appear calmer, “The Starfallen Sea is really not as dangerous as the rumors made it to be. I am still alive and kicking now, isn’t it the best proof?”
“Meng Qiqi.” Qin Xiumo said suddenly, “What are you looking for?”
