“Senior Brother Chen, you can’t do it?” Tianming asked.
“That’s not it. I’m just seeking your opinion. Tianming, I’m not very good at talking, but I really admire you. Not only for your talent, but other aspects as well,” Chen Jinghong said seriously. His gaze had changed when he looked at Tianming; there was deep admiration in his eyes.
“I’m just lucky, not to mention that I had everyone’s help.” Tianming smiled. He turned to look at Meng Qingqing, whose face was pale. She didn’t dare to raise her head at all.
“Senior Brother Chen, what do you plan to do with her?” Tianming asked.
“The Dazzling Pavilion doesn’t belong to the Ancient Theocrats, at least on the surface. But in my opinion, they’re together with them. With something this big happening in the Divine Tomb, we can’t let anyone who knows the truth leave this place alive,” said Chen Jinghong.
“Okay. Then let’s do it.” Tianming looked at Meng Qingqing, but she didn’t have any response. Seeing that, Tianming asked, “You’re not afraid of death?”
“I am. But that’s also part of life.” Meng Qingqing looked at Dongyang Fengchen far away and asked, “What are you guys going to do with him?”
“Make sure that he cries for his life,” replied Tianming.
“Then kill me first. I don’t want to watch. Life is just a dream, and it will end one day. Death is the same, early or late. It’s meaningless to seek a few more years of life. This fate and this life, it’s fine giving it up,” replied Meng Qingqing.
“That’s because you were born in the vortex of evil. So there’s no meaning in your life. On the other hand, there’s meaning in my life,” said Tianming.
Listening to his words, Meng Qingqing was briefly stunned, then smiled bitterly.
“Let’s send her on her way,” Tianming said to Chen Jinghong. He turned around and threw out the Three-Thousand Starfield, binding Dongyang Fengchen. When he pulled back, he found out that Dongyang Fengchen’s face was swollen and his legs covered in blood. It seemed that Bai Xiaozhu and the rest had been ‘serving’ him well.
“Let’s go.” Tianming dragged Dongyang Fengchen behind him and walked to the only exit.
“You’re not going to let us see it?” Bai Xiaozhu asked.
“You can, but I’m just worried that you might be traumatized by meat for the rest of your life.” Tianming turned back and smiled. His words sent a chill down Bai Xiaozhu’s spine.
“Is it necessary? He’s already in this state.” Meng Qingqing collapsed in Chen Jinghong’s hands.
“Yes. Since I’ve said it, I will keep up to my own words. He might seem pitiful now, but who would pity me if I lost instead? He thinks he can do whatever he wants because he’s a villain? Is it that hard to be a devil?” Tianming said while dragging Dongyang Fengchen into the corner.
Shortly after, screams echoed out from that direction. When Tianming returned, Bai Xiaozhu asked in a speechless tone, “What did you do to him to make him scream so badly?”
“Well, since he said he doesn’t know how to write the word ‘death,’ I merely taught it to him. He’s pretty smart, and he finally learned it before dying,” replied Tianming.
When everyone heard what Tianming said, they took in a cold breath.
Tianming then went to look for ‘Jiang Yanwu,’ which ended up in failure. That fellow clearly hates Dongyang Fengchen, since he ran. But given the Demon City’s massive size, how am I going to find him?
He didn’t dare to be too far away from Feiling. If he couldn’t see her around, he would start feeling uneasy. This battle was dangerous. Even now, he still had wounds left on his body from the Nineshades Poison.
Tianming stood on the altar, looking at the woman lying in the crystal coffin. Chen Jinghong and the other three were below the altar. They didn’t dare to ask much when they saw the grave expression on Tianming’s face.
“It’s almost been an hour since Feng’s soul left his body.” Tianming was a little worried, but there weren’t any dangers in the surroundings. The Soulfiend spat out Ye Lingfeng’s body, allowing Tianming to move it beside the coffin. That way, Ye Lingfeng could return to it when he came out.
“Can the coffin be opened when Ling’er awakens? This crystal coffin seems to be part of the Demon City.”
“It should be possible. If it succeeds, she’ll be a fusion between an innate and acquired godchild. She should be able to do whatever ‘that’ existence can do,” said Tianming.
“I wonder how she’ll turn out. Who knows, she might even be too high up for you to reach.” Ying Huo smiled.
There’s a possibility that she might possess a divine physique. A god physique? Tianming pondered.
As time slowly passed, Tianming noticed that Ye Lingfeng’s body had started turning purple. Upon seeing this, he couldn’t help feeling nervous. He wanted Feiling to live, but at the same time, he didn’t wish to see it at the expense of Ye Lingfeng’s life.
Suddenly, the woman in the coffin opened her eyes. Judging from her gaze, she was still the Feiling he knew. But there were some changes to her temperament. She felt more ethereal, like a deity.
“Big brother!” She immediately started tearing up as she came out of the coffin.
Seeing Feiling standing before him alive and well, Tianming’s eyes started turning red. Her tears contained passion, and the joy of having escaped death—she was still the same person Tianming knew.
“Feng, we’re out!” Feiling called out. Shortly after, a white mist rose from her head, took on a humanoid form, and entered Ye Lingfeng’s body.
When Ye Lingfeng opened his eyes, he started coughing and moved his limbs. The purple shade on his body also began receding. However, his expression was somewhat wilted and he was having a hard time opening his eyelids.
“Big brother Tianming, I’m fine. You don’t have to worry about me. I just need to rest for a few days,” he said in a weak voice.
“Okay.” Tianming nodded heavily. At this moment, all the worries in his heart had finally dissipated.
After Ye Lingfeng came out, the Soulfiend climbed onto the altar and grabbed him. He managed to force a smile before he fainted. The Soulfiend whimpered softly and held on to him as if it was holding onto a rare treasure. The relationship it shared with Ye Lingfeng wasn’t like Tianming’s relationship with his lifebound beasts. They had the relationship of a master and servant.
At this moment, Tianming and Feiling were the only ones left on the altar. Feiling suddenly burst into tears and opened her arms. “Big brother!”
“It’s fine. It’s all good now!” Tianming hugged Feiling tightly. They could hear each other’s heartbeat. Even Tianming’s speech had become incoherent from the happiness he felt.
Now that Feiling was in Tianming’s embrace, she finally couldn’t hold back anymore and started crying. She was a mortal, regardless of the resilience she had shown when fighting with the innate godchild’s soul. Now that everything had come to an end, her heart was fragile before her beloved one.
“It’s fine now, don’t cry.” Tianming patted Feiling’s back.
“It’s fine. I’m just happy,” Feiling choked on her tears.
Tianming wanted to give her another promise, such as protecting her from any danger. But nothing came out of his mouth. After all, who could have complete control over their lives? What Feiling needed was support and a hug.
When Feiling’s tears wet his clothes, he could feel her soul. She was a living person, with flesh and blood. Her tenacity and strong love was the reason why she had survived.
As they hugged, they were also marking each other. The love between youngsters might be innocent, but there was nothing more beautiful than it. Tianming wasn’t joking when he said that he was willing to die for her. He wasn’t afraid of others calling him a fool; you only live once, and no one was perfect. He just wanted to do whatever he wants, and kill anyone who tries to take her away from him.
Who cared about that god’s hundred years of hard work? Tianming only cared about this girl who was currently in his embrace.
After Feiling was done crying, she raised her head and bit her lips. “Big brother, are you going to cry too?”
“What nonsense are you talking about? I’m just showing you my new technique, the Golden Dazzle Eyes. What do you think of it? Isn’t it cool?” Tianming coughed to hide his awkwardness.
“I saw it: one black and one golden. Big brother, you look coquettish,” Feiling laughed. Her response made Tianming speechless. Ying Huo had taught Feiling all the wrong things.
“Say that again?” Tianming raged.
“You’re...mmmmmmh!” Tianming interrupted Feiling with a kiss. Their tongues tangled together for a long time. It was a beautiful scene on the altar. At that moment, they were the manifestation of passion and youth.
“Holy shit!” Bai Xiaozhu covered his eyes with one hand and covered Situ Yiyi’s face with another.
“Get lost! They’re so touching.” Situ Yiyi started crying as well.
“Do you know what happened?” Bai Xiaozhu asked in shock.
“I don’t,” said Situ Yiyi.
“Then what the hell are you so touched about!” Bai Xiaozhu rebuked.
“Tianming is really romantic. I’m so touched! I can’t stand it anymore, I want a divorce!” Situ Yiyi continued to cry
“What’s it got to do with you?! You want a divorce again?!” Bai Xiaozhu was speechless at Situ Yiyi’s impulsive decision.
“That’s because you’re not romantic at all! Do you remember what you gave me for our anniversary?!” Situ Yiyi rebuked.
“Didn’t I give you a luminous comb? It’s even engraved with ‘Love from Zhu.’ I personally engraved it myself! That’s not romantic enough for you?” Bai Xiaozhu was puzzled.
“Get lost!” As a result, Bai Xiaozhu and Situ Yiyi started fighting.
“It’s nice to be single!” Chen Jinghong immediately distanced himself from the squabbling pair.
Suddenly, the Demon City started shrinking and all of them were thrown out of the city. They landed in a dark and spacious underground space. This place initially stood below the Demon City, but because the Demon City had shrunk in size, a large space was naturally opened up.
All of them were dumbfounded, watching the still-shrinking Demon City above their heads. In the end, the massive city had already shrunk down to palm size before falling into Feiling’s hand. But that wasn’t the end of it. The next second, the Demon City merged into her forehead, becoming a black dot between her brows.
When Tianming raised his head, he saw the Abyssal Battlefield above his head. Due to the disappearance of the Demon City, the second Divine Capital started collapsing.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
