Chapter 90: If you can do it then you should go up and do it
The cold spear pierced through Xiao Xiao’s abdomen, spewing a scarlet splash of liquid that resembled a blood lotus. Time seemed to freeze at that very moment.
“Princess Xiao Xiao!”
The audience stared with widened eyes as they gasped.
As they looked carefully, they were taken aback when they realize that the person who had sneakily attacked from behind was WindWithoutTrace!
At this moment, WindWithoutTrace’s eyes were red. His expression was ferocious and he looked like a devil!
A cold, grim voice spat out from WindWithoutTrace’s mouth, sending chills down people’s spine.
Why did WindWithoutTrace suddenly sneakily attack Princess Xiao Xiao who had saved him? Was he pretending to be unconscious?
Questions filled everyone’s minds, but they did not have any time to think because Xiao Xiao’s situation was already critical!
The cold spear would only take at most another second to completely penetrate her frail body!
In this extremely dangerous moment, Xiao Xiao was exceptionally calm. She hurriedly stretched out her right hand to grip the spear tip. As she forcefully pushed the spear backwards, she used Wind Walk to surge forward, allowing her to escape in an instant.
Xiao Xiao spat out a mouthful of blood as she began to feel lucky. She hated pain since she was young; hence, before entering the virtual world, she had instructed the professional technicians to reduce the pain levels to less than 10%. As a result, she only felt a fleeting moment of pain that was like a slight prick when her abdomen was pierced. This allowed her to maintain her consciousness.
However, after running about two steps, Xiao Xiao felt her body turn heavy and her limbs go soft. Only then did she realize that injuries in this extremely realistic virtual world would affect her bodily functions. Having suffered a grievous injury to her abdomen, her body could no longer support her usage of Wind Walk.
Xiao Xiao turned anxious as she heard the air crack, as though there was a sonic boom. She hurriedly turned her head over to see a cold spear tip attacking her. It was just inches away from her throat!
Even in a virtual world, the feeling of an impending death was extremely realistic, it was so realistic that Xiao Xiao unconsciously closed her eyes at that very moment.
In the darkness, she suddenly felt a pair of warm hands grab her waist tightly as her body fell into an alien embrace. Immediately following that, she lost her sense of weight and experienced a centrifugal force. A howling wind blasted across her face as she opened her eyes in astonishment. She looked up to see a clown mask that looked somewhat funny.
At that critical juncture, Shi Xiaobai had swept up Xiao Xiao, helping her to dodge that fatal strike!
“Hurry up and use your Energy Pearl.”
Shi Xiaobai’s reminder echoed in her ears before Xiao Xiao came round to. She immediately used her Energy Pearl, causing a pale red light to shroud her abdomen wound. The wound healed at a speed visible to the naked eye.
With bloodshot eyes, WindWithoutTrace, who appeared as though he had been possessed by the devil, charged over in a crazy manner. He stabbed straight at Shi Xiaobai!
Shi Xiaobai immediately jumped away with Xiao Xiao in his arms. Noticing how WindWithoutTrace did not have any intention to stop his pursuit, he hurriedly began using Crab Steps to retreat. Although he was carrying someone, his Crab Steps was still a little faster than WindWithoutTrace’s Wind Walk. Gradually, he opened up a gap between him and WindWithoutTrace.
Only then did Xiao Xiao heave a sigh of relief. As she relaxed, she suddenly felt a tension around her chest. When she lowered her head, her face immediately blushed.
At this moment, Shi Xiaobai was carrying her like he was carrying a princess. One hand was beneath her legs, propping them up, while the other hand was underneath her armpit. Her chest was tightly adhered to his.
Although this was a virtual world, the close contact felt extremely realistic in the immersive environment. Xiao Xiao, who had yet to date, had never experienced such a situation. She could forget how intimate the princess carry was, but what sort of breast-attacking wandering hands were those?
Despite understanding the extenuating circumstances and knowing how it was likely unintentional on Shi Xiaobai’s part, or how everything was fake, Xiao Xiao could not resist the embarrassment she felt. Immediately, she coldly said, “Let me go!”
“Keep quiet if you want to live.”
Shi Xiaobai’s tone sounded irritated. He had lost the opportunity to have his Crab Steps break through to the Dominating Refinement realm, so he was feeling absolutely terrible.
Upon hearing this, Xiao Xiao turned furious as she struggled in Shi Xiaobai’s embrace. However, she went limp after struggling for a moment or two. The Energy Pearl required a period of time for it to fully heal her, so she was still in an extremely weak state. Xiao Xiao could not help but silently curse herself for designing the Energy Pearl to have a delayed recovery period in order to ensure the game’s balance.
Wouldn’t having instant recovery be great?
“So what if I die!? Hurry up and let me go!”
Xiao Xiao felt aggrieved.
What was so frightening about dying in a virtual world? A sex pervert like you was most frightening, do you get that?
“If you were to die, what will This King do?” Shi Xiaobai was angered.
If Xiao Xiao were to die, how was he to cultivate his Crab Steps?
“Ah?” Xiao Xiao was dumbfounded.
“This King needs you.”
If he did not need Xiao Xiao to help cultivate his Crab Steps, he would not have gone through such great efforts to save her. After all, this was a virtual world. Death just meant leaving the game.
Shi Xiaobai sighed and tightened his embrace. WindWithoutTrace was still incessantly chasing after him, so he did not dare relax. He sped up once again.
When Xiao Xiao heard Shi Xiaobai’s words, she suddenly recalled the feeling they previously shared as mutual opponents. As her heart softened, she whispered, “Piggyback me, we shall counterattack.”
Shi Xiaobai was slightly stunned before he understood what Xiao Xiao meant. As he turned his head to see that WindWithoutTrace was still a distance away, he gritted his teeth and hurriedly put down Xiao Xiao. He bent down and roughly piggybacked Xiao Xiao. He pushed Xiao Xiao’s buttocks up from below in order to adjust his body before he began running ahead again.
Having her buttocks attacked, Xiao Xiao was close to tears.
This rascal was definitely doing it on purpose! He was nothing but a pervert!
Xiao Xiao took a deep breath to force herself to calm down. She summoned her crystal bow and made a half turn with her body. She immediately saw WindWithoutTrace, whose hair was disheveled and eyes bloodshot, crazily pursuing them.
“It’s all WindWithoutTrace’s fault!”
Xiao Xiao immediately found a target to vent her anger. If not for WindWithoutTrace’s sudden sneak attack, would she have been in such a… Hmph, if this battle could carry on, she swore to riddle the sex pervert with holes that made him look like a beehive.
This arrow of Xiao Xiao’s contained her rage. Although she was being piggybacked by Shi Xiaobai, resulting in tremors and an awkward position, she was still able to shoot out an arrow at her usual standard.
This arrow had to kill WindWithoutTrace!
The red beam shot out before an explosive blast happened. As dust billowed, a figure dashed out once again like a fierce wolf!
Xiao Xiao was stunned. Why did WindWithoutTrace appear unhurt despite her shooting an arrow?
“Can you do it?”
Upon noticing the situation, Shi Xiaobai could not help but question her.
Xiao Xiao coldly grunted before she consecutively shot out another three “Crimson Netherworld” in a fit of rage.
“Boom! Boom! Boom!”
The sound of explosions resounded once again. This time Xiao Xiao realized why “Crimson Netherworld” did not manage to kill WindWithoutTrace. Every time her arrow was about to hit its target, it would collide into a black barrier that suddenly appeared. The black barrier only lasted for a moment, but it perfectly resisted Crimson Netherworld. WindWithoutTrace remained unharmed underneath the protection of the black barrier!
What was the deal with the barrier?
Only a Psionic Soul Realm warrior could perfectly block her Crimson Netherworld, so with WindWithoutTrace’s strength, it was impossible for him to produce such a powerful barrier!
“Hey, can you really do it?”
Shi Xiaobai was running with his fastest speed while piggybacking Xiao Xiao, so he was gradually feeling tired. Noticing how WindWithoutTrace was still unharmed despite her shooting four arrows, he could not help but question her.
Xiao Xiao’s expression changed. The black barrier could have very well entered the domain of the Psionic Soul Realm, so she truly had no means of shattering it. However, she immediately felt wronged when she heard Shi Xiaobai’s questioning.
What evil have I committed to be bullied by you in this manner?
Xiao Xiao retorted, “If you can do it then you should go up and do it!”
If you can’t do it then don’t even criticize!
Shi Xiaobai calmly responded. He came to an abrupt stop and let Xiao Xiao down before he turned to face WindWithoutTrace, who was desperately pursuing them.
Xiao Xiao was stunned, unsure of what Shi Xiaobai’s intentions were.
“This King shall go ahead.”
Shi Xiaobai pulled out the short knife DualBladesToTraverseTheWorld had lent him from his waist as he stepped forward to block Xiao Xiao behind him.
He raised his short knife and charged straight at WindWithoutTrace!
