Everyone else stood quietly at the side. At this moment, they didn’t know how to comfort Huo Yuhao. Even though they could guess what had happened, they didn’t want to believe it was the truth.
Wang Qiu’er also appeared to be in a daze as she carried Wang Dong’er. Tears streamed down her cheeks and dripped onto Wang Dong’er’s body.
Finally, Huo Yuhao crawled over in front of her. He tugged at her pants and wanted to get up to see Wang Dong’er.
Wang Qiu’er squatted down and passed Wang Dong’er to Huo Yuhao.
Right now, Wang Dong’er wasn’t breathing. However, her eyes were wide open. Even though she was already dead, Huo Yuhao could still see the reluctance and yearning in her eyes.
“Dong’er, Dong’er...” Huo Yuhao peered into the sky and wailed tragically. His hysterical voice echoed loudly in the air. Tears flowed down his face; he had broken down completely now.
What happened? What happened after the projection disappeared?
“There’s no conclusion from this duel between the two of you. Since this is the case, we’ll use another method. Huo Yuhao is on the brink of death right now. He’ll survive as long as one of you is willing to sacrifice your life for his. However, you must remember that he might end up with the other person if he survives and you die. This means that you might grant your love rival her wish if you sacrifice your life to save him. The two of you only have three seconds to decide.”
Wang Qiu’er was in a daze. She subconsciously looked at Wang Dong’er, and was stunned.
There was a pair of milky-white hands that radiated fearlessness….
There was a pair of eyes that yearned for life and love…
There was a sorrow that carried a sense of reluctance…
There was a natural stroke of decisiveness that gave no regard for anything else….
There wasn’t any hesitation. There was no delay or waiting. It was just for Huo Yuhao, so that he could escape danger a second earlier.
Wang Dong’er’s pressed her milky-white hands against her forehead, and a blinding golden light shone.
Her Radiant Butterfly Goddess’ wings instantly changed into countless spots of light before dissipating.
She wasn’t looking at the sky, but at Wang Qiu’er. There was a look of pleading and exhortation in her eyes. There was also a strong look of reluctance…
“Dong’er!” Wang Qiu’er shouted, and she turned into a beam of flowing light before charging towards Wang Dong’er. She grabbed Dong’er before she collapsed to the ground.
Wang Dong’er didn’t hold back as she attempted suicide. At this moment, there was no longer any vibrancy in her eyes. Blood oozed out from her pores too. However, there was also a tinge of satisfaction in her eyes even though she was reluctant.
“I… have… won…”
Tears flowed uncontrollably from Wang Qiu’er’s eyes at this moment. “You’ve won. Yes. You’ve won. Dong’er, Dong’er, don’t die… you…”
Wang Dong’er smiled, but didn’t shut her eyes. She looked into the sky instead, at the figure that had retracted his golden trident. She also looked at Huo Yuhao, who still hadn’t risen to his feet.
The bluish-gold figure holding the trident seemed to be staring back at her. The light from his body dimmed, and he silently vanished from the sky.
Wang Dong’er was trying to look at Huo Yuhao, even though she was slowly losing her life. However, she still couldn’t bear to shut her eyes even as she was about to die. She still wanted to take a last look at Huo Yuhao.
I really want to be your wife…
I really want to be with you every moment…
I really want to bear our kids…
I really want to love you forever…
I really want to…
The shiny beads of tears in her eyes also seemed to turn powdery-blue as they streamed down Wang Dong’er’s cheeks…
Wang Qiu’er was in a daze as she lifted Dong’er up. Her tears continuously fell onto Wang Dong’er’s clothes. As she watched Wang Dong’er slowly lose her life, she knew that she had lost.
“You win. You love him more than me. You can be completely selfless for him. At that moment, I actually wished that you would die for him so that I could be with him. I don’t feel maligned losing to you. However, why am I in so much pain? Dong’er, I should be the one who’s dying. I’ve lost. I’ve really, completely lost this time. You died for him, and I can’t bring myself to lie to him. I’ve lost, and you’ve won. He’ll only love one person in his entire life. It’ll never change...”
Boundless golden light descended from the sky and quickly engulfed them. In the next moment, the stars realigned, and time was distorted.
“She won. She used her life to tell me that she loves you more than me. She won.” Wang Qiu’er was smiling bitterly as she stood up. Her body trembled as she turned around and walked away step by step. She walked toward the boundless golden world.
No one stopped her. No one could stop her.
No one had expected that the person to perish in this Yin-Yang Love Querying Valley would eventually be Wang Dong’er.
Huo Yuhao hugged Wang Dong’er’s body tightly. He only felt that his heart had left with her. At this moment, the others were surrounding him. Bei Bei squatted down and softly clasped Huo Yuhao’s shoulder.
However, no one was able to say any comforting words. Xiao Xiao and Jiang Nannan were already crying miserably.
Dong’er’s dead. Dong’er’s actually dead… she’s dead because she wanted Yuhao to remain alive…
Suddenly, Huo Yuhao lifted his head and opened his eyes wide. He shouted, “Dong’er isn’t dead. Dong’er isn’t dead. This, this is the Yin-Yang Love Querying Valley. You can revive her, right? Right?” Huo Yuhao looked into the sky. After this, he placed Wang Dong’er down beside him and crawled forward a bit before starting to kowtow.
“Please, please, revive Dong’er. I’m willing to exchange my life and spirit for hers. Please…”
He was crying his guts out at this moment. In just a few kowtows, Huo Yuhao’s forehead was already bruising and bleeding.
Xu Sanshi wanted to go forward to pull him up, but he was stopped by Bei Bei. Bei Bei knew that this was the only way in Huo Yuhao’s eyes.
The entire place suddenly lit up. Wang Qiu’er was dragged back by an irresistible force. Different streaks of light illuminated everyone’s bodies, sealing them all.
At this point, the indifferent voice that everyone was afraid of echoed forth.
“Dai Huabin, have you realized what you truly want after going through so much?”
Dai Huabin was stunned. He lifted his head into the sky and replied, “I just want to be with my Lulu. Nothing else matters.” Zhu Lu’s injuries left him grief-stricken. However, he felt that he was very fortunate as he looked at Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’er. At least Zhu Lu was still alive…
“You were drawn by beauty, but you managed to find yourself in the end. This shows that affection is important to you. You’ve passed your Sincerity Adventure round, and you’ll be rewarded. Your reward will be a Substitution of Love. You can choose to move Zhu Lu’s injuries to your own body to fully heal her. If you don’t want to, you can choose to increase both yours and Zhu Lu’s soul power by five ranks.”
After hearing the the voice, Dai Huabin’s eyes lit up. “I choose to accept the Substitution of Love. Please begin.”
After hearing until here, even Huo Yuhao lifted his head. He was surprised as he looked at Dai Huabin and Zhu Lu. Substitution of Love. If there’s such a thing, does it mean I can substitute my own life for Dong’er’s? He suppressed his sorrow and hugged Wang Dong’er tightly as he watched Dai Huabin and Zhu Lu’s bodies change.
A streak of golden light flashed by and landed on their bodies. Something strange occurred instantly. Dai Huabin’s right arm vanished like melting ice, while Zhu Lu’s right arm was slowly growing out. She was also trembling slightly.
Dai Huabin seemed to be in great pain, but he didn’t even look at his right arm. He only grit his teeth and bore the pain.
It wasn’t just his right arm that was experiencing changes. His face was also experiencing changes… it was starting to rot!
Dai Huabin lowered his head to look at Zhu Lu. Seeing that her injuries were slowly healing, the look in his eyes turned gentler even though he was perspiring from the intense pain.
Suddenly, the golden lights that engulfed them became stronger before vanishing along with the two of them.
“Xu Sanshi, you were willing to give up your future as a soul master for love. It’s very touching. You are also filled with kindness. You’ve passed your Sincerity Adventure round. I believe you’ve already obtained the best reward that you could possibly get.”
Xu Sanshi’s gaze shifted away from Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’er. He nodded and said, “Yes, I’ve obtained the best reward. I’ll treasure Nannan in the future.”
“Jiang Nannan, you’ve also rid yourself of the trauma in your heart. You are gentle and kind, but you couldn’t fulfill your filial duties because of what happened to you. But Xu Sanshi fulfilled them for you, and thus you’ve also passed. Compared to Xu Sanshi’s complete awakening of his Xuanwu, your reward will be less grand. Your soul power will be increased to Rank 60. You can go and find a suitable soul ring now.”
A huge beam of golden light descended from the sky and engulfed them. Jiang Nannan also lit up with white halos. As the light flashed, the two of them disappeared.
Rewards. They all passed, and are being rewarded.
The sorrow in Huo Yuhao’s eyes slowly turned into hope. When will it be my turn? When will it be our turn? I don’t want anything else but to revive Dong’er...Previous Chapter Next Chapter
