Gu Yue lowered her head and didn't say anything. All of a sudden, she threw herself into Tang Wulin's arms and raised her head to kiss him.
Tang Wulin was startled by her intense passion, but he was almost instantly completely entranced as he basked in her familiar aura and felt her scorching lips.
Her movements were very jerky and unrefined, just like during their first kiss, but her lips were filled with passion and love.
Their breathing began to accelerate, and even the temperature in the cave seemed to be gradually on the rise. A scorching sensation began to mount in Tang Wulin's heart, and they tore away at each other's clothes in a frenzied manner, as if they were trying to vent all of their innermost feelings that they'd repressed for so long in an instant.
Right at this moment, Tang Wulin suddenly felt a stinging pain on his chest, and his heart suddenly began to throb in an indescribable manner. This sense of pain abruptly doused the burning desire in his heart, and it seemed to be telling him something.
Gu Yue was still pressing her body desperately against his, but his eyes were gradually regaining the clarity. All of a sudden, golden light erupted from his right hand, and it transformed into a pair of sharp claws before grabbing viciously onto her head.
He roared with fury, "You're not her!"
Dazzling golden light flashed, and Gu Yue's body instantly vanished like an illusion. Golden light was still swirling around Tang Wulin's golden dragon claws as he gasped for breath.
Only then did the light emanating from the silver scale pendant in front of his chest finally dim.
It was none other than the reminder from that scale that allowed Tang Wulin to regain his clarity of mind and identify that the person in his arms wasn't Gu Yue.
A surprised yet enticing voice suddenly rang out. "I conjured up that illusion based on the innermost feelings and memories in your heart; I'm quite surprised that you were able to snap out of it. However, you don't seem to have done so through your own power. This is the trial of love and boundless desire; I am Old Demon Desire."
A woman emerged in a graceful manner from within a dark corner. She referred to herself as an old demon, but she didn't look old at all. She appeared to only be in her twenties, and she was extremely scantily-clad. Her long legs were supple and toned, and the smile on her face evoked flames of desire in the onlooker's heart.
Tang Wulin found her facial features to be rather blurry, but he felt like she bore a strong resemblance to Gu Yue. In reality, anyone would see their lover when they looked at her.
A cold light flashed through Tang Wulin's eyes. "Why would you torture me in such a sick twisted way? You..."
Old Demon Desire smiled, and she was very honest in the face of Tang Wulin's accusatory gaze. "No reason; I simply wanted to see just how deep your love was. I only have lust and desire, but I've never loved before, so I really like to love vicariously through others; it's something that gives me endless joy."
Tang Wulin's expression cooled even further, and he was just about to say something when Old Demon Desire continued, "I actually already guessed well in advance that you would be the most difficult to fool among everyone. You're very difficult to swindle, and you didn't come here with your lover, but unfortunately, you still completely fell into my trap. From that, I can tell that you truly love her very much. Do you want to see everyone else's reaction to this trial of mine?"
Tang Wulin faltered slightly upon hearing this, yet before he had a chance to reply, Old Demon Desire had already waved a hand through the air. A streak of light flashed past, and six screens of light appeared before him.
These six screens obviously depicted images of the six other members of Shrek’s Seven Monsters.
They were also all situated in caves, and their caves seemed to be identical to the one that Tang Wulin was in. Within the first cave was none other than Xie Xie and a transparent Yuanen Yehui. It was quite clear that the latter was an illusion.
At this moment, Xie Xie already had his arms around Yuanen Yehui, but strangely enough, he didn't go any further.
He was panting slightly as if he were trying to repress something, and Yuanen Yehui's hands were rubbing up and down his back seductively while she pressed her body against his.
Xie Xie's breathing accelerated even further, but her movements were rather stiff and robotic.
"D, didn't you say that you were only going to allow me to do this after we get married?" Xie Xie panted.
Yuanen Yehui's seductive voice sounded in reply, "I don't even know if we're going to make it off this demonic island; I'm so scared that we won't even be able to get to the point where we get married. I want to give my first time to you so that even if I die, I'll have no regrets. Xie Xie, make love to me."
Xie Xie's entire body shuddered and he reflexively reached out toward Yuanen Yehui's backside.
However, his hand suddenly stiffened an instant before it made contact with her rear end. Immediately thereafter, he roared with rage, "Go f*cking kill yourself!"
He flicked his wrist, and his Light Dragon Dagger appeared in his grasp as he plunged it into one of Yuanen Yehui's vital regions.
Tang Wulin's eyes widened upon seeing this. Since when did Xie Xie develop such immense willpower? In his mind, Xie Xie had always been someone to whom restraint was quite difficult.
Furthermore, he didn't possess any items like Tang Wulin's silver dragon scale that could awaken him from that illusion, so he'd snapped out of it through his own willpower alone.
Old Demon Desire was just as surprised as Tang Wulin as she looked on in a flabbergasted manner. What just happened?
The fake Yuanen Yehui's body vanished into nothingness, and tears flowed down Xie Xie's face as he murmured to himself, "I really want this to be true! But with Yuanen's personality, she wouldn't offer her body to me just because we could die here! She's so principled and reserved; I've only ever held her hand a few times! I really want this to be true, but it's just not possible! If only that were real!"
Tang Wulin was rendered completely speechless. So Xie Xie's willpower hadn't saved him there; this could all be attributed to Yuanen Yehui's personality. Furthermore, he still most likely harbored a sense of fear deep in his heart toward Yuanen Yehui. After all, he had almost been killed on the two occasions that he'd accidentally stumbled upon Yuanen Yehui as she was bathing, and those two experiences had to have traumatized him to a certain extent.
Tang Wulin's gaze almost reflexively turned toward the light screen that was depicting Yuanen Yehui's cave.
"Slap!" Yuanen Yehui sent the fake Xie Xie flying with a vicious slap to the face. The fake Xie Xie had used an excuse that was similar to the one that the fake Yuanen Yehui had used, but Yuanen Yehui wasn't buying it at all.
A blush had appeared on her face, but she still sent the fake Xie Xie flying without any hesitation.
"H, how could you do this to me? That hurt so much." Xie Xie crawled up from the ground with sorrow in his eyes.
Yuanen Yehui chuckled coldly, "That hurt, did it? There's more pain to come for you! You're not him; he'd never have the guts to ask this of me! You're just an imposter!"
Tang Wulin was shaking his head internally upon seeing this. Just how fearful was Xie Xie of Yuanen Yehui for her to be so certain that he wouldn't dare to make sexual advances toward her, even in this dire situation that they were in! This didn't normally show in their daily interactions, but it was quite clear that Yuanen had exerted a lot of dominance over Xie Xie in their relationship!
He was watching his friends being tortured by Old Demon Desire, but for some reason, after watching Yuanen Yehui and Xie Xie's interactions, Tang Wulin was struck by the urge to burst into laughter.
The next cave he cast his gaze toward was the one that Xu Lizhi was situated in.
"No! I can't do it, Sister Xinglan! You're so perfect and sacred in my heart; I, I'm still not prepared. Don't do this, Sister Xinglan, you're making me uncomfortable! You're not like this in my heart! Don't touch me! I, I, I..."
Xu Lizhi was like a trembling little piglet as he trembled uncontrollably. He was completely curled up into a ball in the corner, and fake Ye Xinglan was squatting down beside him, but she had no idea how to get him to open up.
Tang Wulin's lips twitched involuntarily upon seeing this because Xu Lizhi was putting on a very amusing display. Not only was he curled up in the corner, he'd covered his important region and his eyes, not even daring to look at the seductive Ye Xinglan.
"What are you doing, Lizhi? You know the situation that we're in; I'm truly afraid that something will happen to us, and by then, it'll be too late. While we're together, I want to give you the most precious thing that I have. I know that you've always loved me, so what's there for you to be afraid of?"
Xu Lizhi was panting heavily as he curled up into an even tighter ball. "I can't, Sister Xinglan; I can't take advantage of you like this! Please don't force me to do this, Sister Xinglan; I'm still not prepared! I've always dreamed one day that I would be able to marry you during a lavish wedding, and the two of us will receive blessings from the entire world. I'll carry you into a red room during our wedding night, and lay you down onto the bed in your wedding gown so I can be with you after you've officially become my wife. I really really love you, which is why I can't defile you here. Sex is sacred and it's something that should only be engaged in after a sacred ceremony that binds two people together."Previous Chapter Next Chapter
Gosh, I read the raws a few years ago, and I recall Xie Xie being kinda soft, but this is just sad >_<
Should seriously consider changing the title of this generation of Shrek's Seven Monsters to Shrek's Six Monsters and a Beta Cuck
