Hu Meihui had not imagined that they would be able to leave Getian City so easily. She was still in a state of shock. She had been staying in Xiang Shaoyun's astral cosmos sea, which was like an entirely independent space that exuded an extremely odd aura. There, she seemed to be able to feel Xiang Shaoyun's aura in great clarity.
This independent space was akin to an entirely different world dominated by Xiang Shaoyun alone. Her every move would not be able to escape his eyes. She even had a feeling that the space was Xiang Shaoyun's astral cosmos sea. However, she had never heard of humans possessing an astral cosmos sea capable of storing life.
Before she could even figure out the space she was in, she was released by Xiang Shaoyun. Her curiosity toward Xiang Shaoyun deepened. Her instincts told her that Xiang Shaoyun was not an ordinary human. Because of that, she wasn't willing to leave so easily.
Her brains raced as she said, "I don't know where this is, so how am I supposed to know my way back? C-can I stay with you guys for a bit?"
She spoke tenderly, her appearance one that nobody could say no to.
However, Xiang Shaoyun replied like someone with a heart of stone and said, "No. I am only responsible for bringing you out. Nothing else."
"How can you be so cruel? I haven't even recovered from my injuries," said Hu Meihui as she started shedding tears.
The kind angels felt pity for her. Pudi said, "Child of Light, just allow her to stay with us for a while. It won't be much trouble for us anyway."
"That's right. This girl is quite pitiful. We can't be so heartless," advised a different angel.
Xiang Shaoyun was left speechless. He wondered if she was harboring other intentions toward him.
"Fine, you can stay with us. We will go separate ways when we find a teleportation formation," said Xiang Shaoyun with a strict tone.
He was in a good mood after subduing an expert like the taurus. He also felt that Hu Meihui's charming techniques wouldn't work against him, so he wasn't afraid of her tricks.
"Thank you," said Hu Meihui toward the angels gratefully, disregarding Xiang Shaoyun.
Her response gave Xiang Shaoyun a feeling of helplessness. He thought, No wonder the angels always keep to themselves. They are too pure and can be easily manipulated.
After two days, the taurus was finally fully healed. When he stood respectfully before Xiang Shaoyun, the angels and Hu Meihui were stunned. Xiang Shaoyun had subdued such a powerful Demon Sovereign just like that?
"Let's go. We need to start searching for signs of civilization," said Xiang Shaoyun, not wishing to waste more time. He then sat on the taurus, who had shifted back to his beast form, and started heading forward.
Hu Meihui also wanted to sit on the taurus. However, the taurus was unwilling and shook her off, causing her to feel sullen. She gazed at Xiang Shaoyun with a layer of haze in her eyes, hoping that he would say something for her. However, he disregarded her and continued onward.
Are you still a man? cursed the resentful Hu Meihui inwardly.
Xiang Shaoyun did not hear her thoughts. If he had, he would probably be infuriated. How was he not a man? He wouldn't mind proving how manly he was to her if she wanted.
The group headed westward. After a day, they arrived at a village. After asking around the village, they continued to travel and eventually arrived at a town. At the town, they learned the location of the nearest city and started heading toward the city at top speed.
By the time they arrived, seven days had passed. They were now extremely far away from Getian City. During the journey, Hu Meihui had tried to get closer to Xiang Shaoyun, trying to charm him. However, he continued to turn a blind eye to all her attempts. He even warned her not to use her charming techniques, greatly hurting her heart.
After reaching the city, they prepared to look for a tavern to rest. They would proceed to figure out their exact location and separate the next day. Their group looked rather unique as it had a human, demonic beasts, a fox lady, and angels. Thus, wherever they went, people looked at them with curiosity.
The women looking at them would find their gazes attracted by Xiang Shaoyun without exception, while the men would all be attracted to the fox lady. The two were simply too attractive.
There was even a particularly brazen man who stepped forth to tease Hu Meihui. However, with a single look into his eyes, she used her charming technique to make him repeat an obscene motion at a nearby pillar, turning him into a joke.
The group smoothly reached the largest tavern of the city. After renting several rooms, they sat down in the hall, ordered some food, and started discussing their separation.
"Child of Light, are you not coming back with us?" asked Pudi.
Xiang Shaoyun smiled and said, "I might be an envoy, but it still isn't proper for me to spend all my time at your place. Also, I am still too weak. I will definitely visit you when I grow stronger in the future. Please express my regret to the high priest. If you need something, feel free to look for me at Celestial King Province's Ziling Sect in the Western Desert. That is my birthplace, also my home."
"Western Desert? That's really far. But a place with the Child of Light is most definitely a clean and beautiful place," said Pudi respectfully.
He was the very person who had captured Xiang Shaoyun and purified him atop the tower in the past. If he didn't take this chance to flatter Xiang Shaoyun, he might not be able to preserve his status among the angels in the future.
Xiang Shaoyun smiled and said, "It’s just a normal sect. There is nothing special about it."
A different angel said, "Since the high priest had not given us a time frame for when we need to return, we might as well pay your place a visit. It will make it easier for us when we want to visit others in the future."
"That's a good idea. Even better if we can create a teleportation formation connecting that place and our place," suggested a different angel.
Xiang Shaoyun's eyes lit up. If they made a teleportation formation, he would be able to borrow the angels' might. He would be much more fearless then.
"Sure. Come with me to the Ziling Sect and familiarize yourself with the place. We can then return to your place and talk with the high priest about this," said Xiang Shaoyun in excitement.
The angels did not seem to mind. In fact, they looked excited at the prospect of extending their travel and getting the chance to visit more places.
At this time, Hu Meihui asked weakly, "C-can I go with you?"
"No. Absolutely not. We are not close," said Xiang Shaoyun firmly.
"Wuwuwu, you heartless man. How can you be so heartless that you can watch on as a homeless girl roams around without direction? Evil villains can descend upon me at any time. You are too heartless!" said Hu Meihui, who started bawling.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
