Meng Qi: “???”
Meng Qi: “!!!”
Meng Qi didn’t know how long she had been dazed. Her breathing was chaotic, and her mind went totally blank. It was as if her consciousness had been completely detached from her body and was now floating on cloud nine. Meng Qi didn’t know when she returned to her sense. As if dreaming, her mind was floating up and down in the wind.
What Yun Qingyan just did to her was completely outside her expectation. His lips were warm. His slender fingers seemed to hold mysterious power; despite the fact that he didn’t use aura or spells, she found herself stunned and completely unable to move.
Still, purely out of instinctive reaction, Meng Qi continued to hold Yun Qingyan’s hand tightly and never let it go. She had used the Five Aggregates Heart-clearing Spell hundreds of times today and had become so familiar that she no longer needed to actively think when using it. One after another, an endless stream of aura kept pouring into the man’s body.
She must hold on……
That was the only thought that still occupied Meng Qi’s mind. Exerting more strength, she tightened her grip on Yun Qingyan’s left hand.
The sound of disordered breathing mixed with wetness filled her ears, driving her mind even messier.
On her skin, she felt the man’s strong touch that seemed to become even hotter.
In the midst of haziness, Meng Qi seemed to hear Yun Qingyan’s low chuckle.
But she could no longer think clearly; she felt like she had returned to the dream leaf boat, being thrown high by the waves, only to fall heavily again.
Up and down, up and down, totally at the mercy of the sea.
Meng Qi didn’t know how much time had passed. In drowsiness, she felt the effect of the Cangmingsan pill gradually dissipate. The forcibly enlarged spiritual sea was slowly returning to its original size, leaving tiny cracks here and there. For the duration of three days, these small cracks would slowly be repaired on their own, during which she couldn’t use her spiritual aura. If she forcibly used aura or even took another Cangmingsan Pill, her spiritual sea would be seriously damaged and even completely shattered. At best, her cultivation base would fall on one stage, and at worst, she would completely lose her cultivation base, never to advance again in this life, and her life might even be in danger.
Through Meng Qi’s persistent effort, the last Five Aggregates Heart-clearing Spell went from her fingertips and entered Yun Qingyan’s body. She then frowned. Her spiritual sea dried up, and the sequelae caused by the powerful Cangmingsan Pill made her sore and aching, drying every drop of energy from her body.
Totally exhausted, Meng Qi opened her eyes with great effort and took a look at Yun Qingyan. At this moment, the man’s usually calm and indifferent face was painted with a look she had never seen before. A few strands of sweat soaked his hair, sticking them to his face. However, his slightly disheveled appearance did not make Yun Qingyan ugly — on the contrary, it added another, formerly unknown, charm to his already peerless look.
The blood color in Yun Qingyan’s eyes had faded, and the reflection of stars returned to the deep and bright eyes that had become clear once again. He seemed to be in disbelief upon finding himself pressing down Meng Qi under him. Several red marks of different shades covered the girl’s slender neck, looking very conspicuous, with even more further down…
“Meng…Meng Qi…” Yun Qingyan’s voice was slightly hoarse, but his tone was tender.
“Ugh…” Meng Qi groaned softly. Her head tilted to the side, and she completely fainted.
“…” Yun Qingyan was stunned for a moment. Seeing the pale-faced unconscious girl in his arms, he quickly reached out to her wrist in surprise.
Yun Qingyan sighed in relief. Thankfully, she just fainted from exhaustion. The effect of the Cangmingsan Pill was severe, especially after Meng Qi repeatedly overdrew her spiritual aura, and there was also him…
Yun Qingyan’s eyes slightly flickered as he stared at the traces he had left on Meng Qi’s body. He then closed his eyes and flicked his fingers, conjuring a bright light that enveloped the two of them. In an instant, their bodies became clean and fresh again, and Meng Qi’s thin body was now wrapped in a soft and clean white robe.
Yun Qingyan took Meng Qi into his arms and stood up. The expression on his face was complicated, but the chaotic aura in his body had finally quieted down. Moreover, at the void occupying the place of his spiritual sea, there was now a small vortex of spiritual aura, turning and revolving slowly, as if about to continue to grow stronger and bigger.
Yun Qingyan glanced across the originally elegant room, which now looked to have been devastated by a passing storm. He then lowered his head and looked at the unconscious girl in his arms. Meng Qi’s soft cherry-colored lips were slightly red and swollen, making her face look even paler.
“…” Yun Qingyan’s expression turned even more complicated. At this time, he was completely awake, his consciousness had returned, and he remembered with clarity what had just happened.
Yun Qingyan’s eyes slowly went across Meng Qi’s delicate face, down to her jaw. He then continued gazing at her white and slender neck, thin shoulders, willowy arms… and finally stopped on her fragile-looking fingers.
Meng Qi clearly didn’t look very strong — quite the opposite, actually. However, Yun Qingyan clearly remembered! Just now, this girl never let go of his hand. From beginning to the end, she persistently and stubbornly kept sending spiritual aura into his body, even when she was treated like that…
The white-robed man exhaled heavily, as if to expel the turbid feeling in his chest.
Why did she do so much?
Yun Qingyan had witnessed Meng Qi’s stubbornness and tenacity first-hand, and knew that once she made up her mind, she would stick with it to the end, no matter the consequences.
But why? Why did she even sacrifice herself to save him?!
