Under such a circumstance, even his four Spirits were of no use to him. He could only handle this by himself.
Huo Yuhao plopped onto his bed and shut his eyes tightly. He looked very pale, and seemed like he couldn’t hold on anymore. He really looked like he couldn’t hold on anymore.
His yearning for Wang Dong’er was too immense. It overwhelmed him completely.
Dong’er, are you really alive? He actually always had a thought in his mind – what should he do if the sect and vice-sect leader of the Clear Sky Sect were only telling him lies?
This was what he feared. Even though he tried his best to steer away from such thinking, he would be overwhelmed with fear every time he had such a thought.
Being unable to see Wang Dong’er forever? What could possibly be more terrifying than that?
“Dong’er, Dong’er, Dong’er…” Huo Yuhao was groaning softly. “Dong’er, if you’ve really left this world, then bring me with you. Don’t leave me alone in this world to suffer. Dong’er, I really miss you.”
Tears flowed down the corners of his eyes.
The senior commanders of the Star Luo Empire’s Northwestern Field Army couldn’t imagine that the young hero in their hearts was actually squirming in his bed right now while crying tears of pain. Huo Yuhao wasn’t even clear-headed right now.
The curtains to his tent were pulled open, and a tall and slender figure walked into his tent. As she heard Huo Yuhao’s groans, her body turned slightly stiff. After that, however, she continued to walk towards Huo Yuhao. Her movements were very slow, as if she found it difficult to walk.
However, she suddenly picked up her pace as she came closer to Huo Yuhao’s bed. She quickly came to his side and sat down by his bedside.
His tears had already wet his blanket. Huo Yuhao’s senses were normally very acute, but right now, he actually didn’t know that there was someone else in the tent. He continued to squirm and groan in pain. His face was very pale, and buckets of tears and sweat had already fused together as they flowed down his cheeks.
Delicate fingers gently caressed his forehead. The movement of the fingers seemed a little stiff and rigid.
Huo Yuhao’s sweat moistened the white and tender fingers. The fingers seemed to be trembling slightly, and there was a tinge of warmth from them. The lady in the tent was shuddering a little, and was also in a slight state of shock.
“Dong’er, don’t leave me.” Suddenly, Huo Yuhao reached out and grabbed her hand.
She was astonished, and wanted to retract her hand. However, his grip was very tight.
She didn’t struggle, but she could sense that his hands were icy-cold. It was icy-cold to a terrifying point. It was as if he had lost all the warmth in his body.
Don’t tell me that he’s always in such great pain after he uses his Haodong Palm?
It was weird, but Huo Yuhao calmed down after grabbing her hand. He stopped shivering as much, but he was still mumbling to himself. However, his pain had evidently been reduced significantly.
He’s really pitiful! I never thought one could turn out like this from loving someone too much. However, why did he turn his love into a skill? Why doesn’t he go and find his lover?
Not far outside the tent, there was a person squatting in a dark corner. This person watched as she walked into the tent.
A slight smile spread across his face. He slowly stood up. It seemed like he didn’t need to stand guard anymore. She didn’t come out, even after a long time.
This person walked out from the corner. Wasn’t he the Eternal Defense, Xu Sanshi?
Huo Yuhao was suffering from the backlash of his Haodong Palm, and his body was very weak. Xu Sanshi understood this the best. This was why he followed Huo Yuhao back and stood guard outside his tent as a means of protecting him.
However, that lady had been in the tent for a long time without leaving yet. It seemed like he didn’t need to carry on with his protection for the rest of the night.
He silently left without making a sound.
Inside the tent.
Huo Yuhao had calmed down. His breathing had become more rhythmic, and he was no longer shivering. At times, he would mumble to himself, but he was evidently in less pain.
He used both his hands to grab tightly onto her tender fingers. It was as if he were grabbing hold of some life-saving grass. He wouldn’t let go of her hands. Slowly, a satisfied grin surfaced on his face.
He had fallen asleep. Following this, moonlight shone in from outside the window. From where she was seated, she caught a view of his profile. She was only here because she was worried about him, and curious about his condition.
However, she discovered that she was unable to leave right now.
She could most certainly pull her hand back, but she was afraid of harming him in that way, so she didn’t do so. He didn’t do anything else either. He only tightly grabbed hold of her hand and squirmed in place . He was falling deeper and deeper into his sleep.
This is the generational talent that everyone is in awe of? A bitter look appeared across her face. So he’s actually this fragile behind the surface. It seems like he has given too much to attain whatever powers he has.
But why is he able to calm down after grabbing hold of my hand? Is it because he feels comforted?
She retrieved a handkerchief with her other hand and dabbed at the perspiration on his head. Even she didn’t know why she did something as intimate as his.
He appeared evidently less tense after she wiped off his sweat. It was as if she possessed some kind of magical power that helped him to calm down.
His hands started to regain some warmth, and he stopped holding on so tightly. His body also moved with greater ease.
She continued to wipe away his sweat. Slowly, she placed her handkerchief to one side, and started to gently caress his hair.
He doesn’t look too bad. The lines on his face are smooth, and his eyelashes are long. There’s some rosiness to his cheeks right now and the life energy that he’s exuding seems to be stronger than anyone else.
Unwittingly, she became a little dazed. Just as she was in a daze, he slowly weakened his grip on her hands.
“Oh… I can finally leave.” She gently retracted her hand, which was already covered with sweat. However, she subconsciously clenched her fist, as if she wanted to preserve the warmth that she felt in her hand.
After she retracted the hand that she had placed on his head, she silently stood up. He was still sleeping very calmly, and didn’t move at all.
She silently walked towards the exit of his tent. However, for some reason, she couldn’t help but turn back every few steps.
His breathing was still as rhythmic as ever. There wasn’t any change.
Finally, she got to the exit. She turned back and took one last deep look at him.
Someone who’s so persistent in love like him should be a good guy.
Goodnight, good guy!
Morning. The warm sunlight bore down on Huo Yuhao’s face through the window. The heat jolted him from his sleep.
As he opened his eyes and felt the blinding sunlight, he subconsciously used his hand to cover his eyes.
Oh? It’s already so late. Why am I not up yet? Normally, he would already be cultivating in bed at this time!
As he sat up, everything that had happened the previous night quickly surfaced in his mind. Huo Yuhao subconsciously took a look at his Starlight Sapphire ring. In his ring were more than ten high altitude aerial surveillance soul tools.
Yes, we didn’t just manage to successfully steal the high altitude aerial surveillance soul tools last night. We should have killed the Mad Bull Douluo too. I used my Haodong Palm. After I returned, I was in excruciating pain. But why am I not feeling anything right now?
In the past, he couldn’t recover in one night after unleashing his Haodong Palm. He needed a period of time to fully recover. Furthermore, he would always be very groggy the next day.
However, he was filled with energy right now, and his body was completely at ease. There weren’t any side effects. It was as if he had had a perfect night’s sleep, and had even overslept.
Weird! After scratching his head, Huo Yuhao stood up and walked out of his tent.
The sun was shining brightly today, and the air was very refreshing. As he took in a deep breath, the refreshing air nourished his body, and he was feeling extremely energetic.
Huo Yuhao was a little amused as he asked himself, Why do I feel so relaxed? And why am I in such a good mood?
However, he didn’t have an answer. No matter what kind of delicacies he consumed, they weren’t able to improve his mood to such a stage. However, he was feeling extremely good today! What exactly happened last night?
He furrowed his brow and pondered.
He could subtly remember that he was in excruciating pain then. However, Wang Dong’er seemed to have arrived after that and comforted him, alleviating his yearning for her and the pain that he experienced. After that, his pain disappeared, and he fell into a comfortable sleep.
Dong’er, did you really come? Huo Yuhao opened his eyes wide. Don’t tell me Dong’er has always been hiding by my side and she comes when I’m in pain? To comfort me? It’s Dong’er. It must have been her. I must have sensed her aura.
He suddenly turned around and charged back into his tent. He leaped onto his bed and took in a deep breath, seeking Wang Dong’er’s scent.
However, what scent would be left over after one night? There was only his own smell on his bed.
Am I just hallucinating? A strong sense of disappointment left Huo Yuhao clenching his fists. However, it was at this moment that his attention was drawn to a corner.
He subconsciously reached out his hand and grabbed a squarish handkerchief.
This handkerchief was made of silk, and felt very soft. It felt like the complexion of a young girl, and there were sweat stains on it.
It doesn’t belong to me! It clearly belongs to a lady.
Huo Yuhao looked at the handkerchief a few times. There weren’t any markings on it. There was only a gentle fragrance that came from it.
Wang Dong’er. This really seemed likeWang Dong’er’s scent.
Don’t tell me that my feeling was right? That Dong’er really came last night to take care of and comfort me? And she helped me out of my pain?Previous Chapter Next Chapter
