“Sovereign Qingyan?” Meng Qi’s footsteps paused, and her expression became tense and wary.
When Yun Qingyan was in his original form, his eyes were as blue as the sea, and when he turned into a human form in a white robe, they were dark brown, no different from ordinary people except for being deeper and brighter in color. At this moment, however, his eyes were so red that they seemed to be soaked in blood, looking very strange and eerie.
Yun Qingyan was looking at Meng Qi with those pair of bloody-red eyes devoid of any emotions. His face was expressionless, and his gaze was even colder than his face, as if no shred of humanity was left on him, leaving only blankness and coldness.
“Sovereign Qingyan.” The countless books Meng Qi had read flashed across her mind. She took two steps forward before being forcefully stopped. Her breath stagnated. A huge pressure came from the front, making it hard for her to even take a single step forward.
Meng Qi raised her eyes and looked around in surprise. There was no wind in the room, but the curtain hung down above quietly fell to the ground.
What is it?!
She stared at the erratic Yun Qingyan. What was this pressure that made her hard to breathe?
Meng Qi held her breath and slowly took another step forward. The tips of her fingers dangling by her side shone slightly. Her right hand flicked her storage space item, taking out her trusted silver knife.
Yun Qingyan’s gaze finally changed. His eyes moved slightly, looking at the silver medical knife in Meng Qi’s right hand. The corners of his lips rose into a slight curvature, but that smile was condescending, as if mocking Meng Qi’s futile action.
“Ugh—” Meng Qi groaned slightly. Just by taking a single step, she felt like stepping into a huge vortex. There was nothing around her, yet her body was overwhelmed with tearing pain from all directions. On top of that, there was also tremendous pressure, so strong that it seemed to crush her.
“Sov-…” Meng Qi tried to speak, but even though her lips moved, she couldn’t hear the slightest sound. Meng Qi tried again. But no matter what she tried to say, her voice seemed to be completely swallowed up by this invisible power.
Meng Qi’s expression froze; could it be…
Yun Qingyan’s left hand still pointed to the sky, and his right pointed to the ground. The light fabric covering the bed frame did not move at all, but his sleeves moved slowly. This scene was very surreal, as if an invisible hand was pulling his sleeve, very slowly.
Is it five primal aura?!
Meng Qi reacted immediately. What filled the room should be the five primal aura from the Starfallen Sea, and Yun Qingyan… should be using the aura to heal his injuries.
Meng Qi stared blankly at the white-robed man whose clothes were still moving slowly, as if being pulled and pushed by something invisible. Meng Qi suddenly remembered. When she first picked up the injured little white tiger, she was surprised to find no existence of spiritual sea in his body. There was only a pitch-black void in the place where a spiritual sea was supposed to be, which seemed to be able to swallow everything. There was nothing else in the little guy’s body — no spiritual sea, no spiritual aura, no inner core.
Meng Qi once treated Su Junmo’s injuries and had seen the spiritual sea of a demon cultivator, which was not much different from that of a human cultivator. The inner core of a demon cultivator and a human cultivator was somewhat different, but the spiritual sea itself was pretty much the same. At that time, she didn’t think that the little white tiger’s spiritual sea was destroyed and simply thought that the cub was still very young. Even for a celestial demon royal clan, their spiritual sea probably hadn’t taken shape yet at such a young age.
Meng Qi recalled everything from that day. In addition to the missing spiritual sea, the little white tiger was injured so badly, and there was even damage caused by the realm’s boundary on his body. Could it be that Yun Qingyan was like Ye Wu, so badly injured that his spiritual sea was completely destroyed?
But he was clearly always so powerful on the few occasions he appeared before!
Meng Qi’s mind was a little chaotic, and all of a sudden, many different thoughts came to her. She raised her eyes to look at the white-robed man in front and saw that the blood-red color in his eyes was growing even thicker.
Yun Qingyan was very good-looking. Even with countless handsome guys in the tree realms, he was definitely the best. At this time, his eyes were blood red and his gaze was frighteningly cold. Not only did he look very eerie now, but compared to his usual loftiness, he looked more mysterious and evilly seductive.
Meng Qi and Yun Qingyan had only looked at each other for a moment, but the girl soon felt a little flustered, and her heart suddenly beat faster — as if her soul was about to be sucked away by those bloody-red eyes.
Meng Qi hurriedly turned her head aside, not daring to look at Yun Qingyan any longer. She was quite shocked at the beginning, but it seemed that Yun Qingyan was alright, and he was simply using the five primal aura to heal his injuries.
Meng Qi sighed in relief and slowly took two steps back. With the silver knife still in her hand, she turned her gaze at the door. At this moment, there was a third person on this Great Wilderness Island, which was a devil realm’s war maiden Ji Yewu. Yun Qingyan should be in a critical moment of his recuperation process, so it was just prudent to be on guard.
After pondering for a while, Meng Qi walked to the door and quickly carved an array with her silver medical knife. She then took several spirit stones from her space item and embedded them into the array. After confirming the array was working, she returned to the chair and sat down.
Meng Qi stared at Yun Qingyan for a while. Although the redness in his eyes seemed to grow thicker, his condition looked relatively stable. She regretted her rashness just now — at this time, Yun Qingyan must not be disturbed, and her action might have stirred him up for a moment.
Meng Qi held a few more spirit stones in her hands, making preparation in case she might need them later. She then took out the bamboo slip that recorded the refining methods of the Five Spirit Cauldron and poured her aura into it.
After a while, a white light flashed, and the bamboo slip disappeared from her hand.
