Chapter 1167: Healing!
Translator: Sigma_ Editor: SSins
A corner of the ancient continent.
Harson, Mia, Yue Man, and some members of the Charteris family were moving through an immense forest. They had just survived a lethal deathtrap.
Harson was using the blood bone to locate Shi Yan.
Mia, Yue Man, and the others were exhausted, but they didnâ€™t complain. In this ancient continent, each step was dangerous. And they couldnâ€™t stay idle in a specific area.
Harson led the group. All of a sudden, his brows twitched. He smiled evilly, "I found him."
Everybody was cheered up and they looked at Harson.
"In that direction. Itâ€™s a little far from us. But Iâ€™m sure that we can reach there in twenty hours. Heâ€™s in a desert. I could even feel the heat there." Harson grinned fiendishly. "To get the blood bones from me, he got hurt. He couldnâ€™t recover in a short time. As long as we find him, we will kill him and I will take back the blood bones the Charteris family had refined."
"Then we should move now!" Mia wore a cold face and she snorted. "This man killed my entourage. He even robbed my Seven-colored Spirit Flower and my Seven-colored Demonic Flower. If I donâ€™t destroy him, I will never feel all right again!"
After they had navigated, they moved immediately and headed to the desert.
Also in the forest but in another location, Audrey, Sha Zhao, Jiao Hai, Jiao Shan, Mo Fou, Wu Feng, and Wu Bai were walking to the holy mountain.
They had found Mo Fou, Wu Feng, and Wu Bai ten hours ago. Wu Fengâ€™s team had just gotten rid of the ice sculptures. Audrey found them, so they joined Audreyâ€™s team and headed to the holy mountain.
Sha Zhao arched his brows and looked in the direction ahead of them. He said, "Thereâ€™s a desert ahead of usâ€¦"
Everybody looked at him bewilderedly and asked for more information. Because in this Center, even Audrey couldnâ€™t use her Soul Consciousness to check the surroundings. How could Sha Zhao?
"My name is Sha Zhao, which has the same pronunciation as "desert." I was born and in the desert and I grew up there. The life Gu Iâ€™ve been cultivating is the Sand Wormâ€¦" Sha Zhao looked at the others and said confidently, "Iâ€™m so used to the smell and aura of the desert. My Sand Worm can sense the energy fluctuation and the familiar heat of the desert. Donâ€™t worry. My Life Gu wonâ€™t make a wrong guess this time. Ahead of us is a desert."
"So what?" Mo Fou asked as he didnâ€™t have a clue.
"Heâ€™s there," Sha Zhao smiled.
Mo Fou, Wu Feng, and Wu Bai didnâ€™t understand him, but Audrey, Jiao Hai, and Jiao Shan were bewildered. They reacted immediately as they knew the one who Sha Zhao had referred to as "He" could only be one person they knew: Shi Yan.
"My Life Gu will be boosted marvelously when it comes near the desert because it was incubated and born in the desert. It can be said that my Gu is the master of the desert so it can sense what I canâ€™t." Sha Zhao explained, "Heâ€™s there. My Life Gu remembers his aura. Iâ€™m sure about this."
Audrey, Jiao Shan, and Jiao Hai hesitated for a while, but then, they headed towards the area that Sha Zhao had pointed. They surprised Mo Fou, Wu Feng, and Wu Bai. They looked at Sha Zhao, Jiao Hai, and Jiao Shan skeptically. And then, they realized that something had happened between Shi Yan and these three. Otherwise, they wouldnâ€™t act like that.
In this ancient continent, only joining hands would help them resist the God Clan and survive. Thatâ€™s why Mo Fou, Wu Feng, and Wu Bai didnâ€™t have any strange actions. They all followed the others.
Under the desert where there were so many beautiful crystals, Shi Yan was laughing and talking to Cecilia, making her blush. She shot him her shy glances from time to time.
"Hey, look at you. You are still so reckless even though youâ€™ve gotten such wounds. I donâ€™t know how youâ€™ve managed to survive until now." Cecilia was blushing, but she wasnâ€™t outraged. Her pretty eyes were smiling as she felt really sweet.
"Hey guys, check what Iâ€™ve found!" Shang Ying Yueâ€™s clear and cold voice arose from a distance. It seemed like she got something.
Cecilia retracted her hand from Shi Yanâ€™s hand. She looked awkward as she hastened to adjust her clothes. Right then, she sat upright as if nothing had happened between them. She lifted her head and asked, "What did you find?"
Shang Ying Yue wasnâ€™t as experienced as Cecilia. She couldnâ€™t see anything strange between the other two. She was still sinking in her joy. "Blood Essence Stone! Itâ€™s the Blood Essence Stone! I found the Blood Essence Stone!" She cheered and glided towards the other two. She stood by Shi Yan and showed him around ten strange fist-sized stones. They looked like they had real blood inside.
Ceciliaâ€™s understanding of earth and heaven materials wasnâ€™t as good as Shang Ying Yueâ€™s. At first glance, she looked confused. She didnâ€™t know how precious or magical the Blood Essence Stone was.
Shi Yan was shaken. He gazed at the Blood Essence Stones and sighed, "Turns out the Mighty Heaven does care about me!"
"Itâ€™s really good for you?" Cecilia was also excited, her face cheered up. "Tell me. What can it do for this asshole?"
"The Blood Essence Stone is the Original Incipient Grade material. To the Immortal Demon Clan, itâ€™s the best tonic. It can supply Blood Qi to help condense more Immortal Demon Blood and make the process faster!" Shang Ying Yue beamed weakly and looked at Shi Yan. "Am I correct?"
"Ying Yue is right. The Blood Essence Stone is the top treasure to me. It can give me a speedy recovery. Iâ€™ve heard about this but never seen it with my own eyes. I heard that only the Ancient Demon Continent has this kind of stone. I didnâ€™t expect to see it here. It seems like I will be healed soon." Shi Yan grinned. Because his mood was so good, he fondly called Shang Ying Yue by her name "Ying Yue."
Shang Ying Yue was always indifferent and cold. Hearing him addressing her dearly, her lukewarm face blushed. She became a little helpless and didnâ€™t know what to say.
She fumbled and placed the Blood Essence Stones in front of Shi Yan. She looked panicked as she took several steps back. She shivered and her mind was like a ball of cotton. She didnâ€™t know how to deal with this awkward situationâ€¦
In fact, she hated Shi Yan a lot, even before they had entered the ancient continent. She had made up her mind that she would trouble Shi Yan a lot because he had seized her brotherâ€™s chance to enter the ancient continent. And he had come to assist her and caught her in odd situations, which deepened the grudge she had against him.
Everything had escalated quickly beyond her estimation. As she wanted to take revenge on the Bai family, she had unwillingly accompanied Shi Yan. Inside the invisible light cage, Shi Yan had taunted her and made her hate him more.
Gradually, the longer she had stayed with him, the more mysterious she found that he was. Shi Yan was like a deep lake that she wanted to explore how deep it went. As things had changed, she had eventually accepted Shi Yan under the threat of the God Clan. She had grouped him with Mo Fou, Wu Feng, and the others. After some serious events, the way she treated him also changed.
In the desert, while she and Cecilia were hopeless without a hand reaching over them, Shi Yan appeared out of nowhere. It was the first time he had touched her heart.
Currently, Shi Yan had protected her regardless of his life. He was willing to let his body be smashed so she could be safe. It was a final arrow hitting her heart that left an image there.
However, since she was a little girl until now, she had never had a feeling for any man. She also lacked experience in talking to men. Hearing him calling her dearly like that, she blushed and got flustered. She felt a little dizzy as she didnâ€™t know what had just happened to her. Instinctively, she dodged and didnâ€™t dare to look at him in the eyes. However, after thinking about it, she found out that she wasnâ€™t angry when he called her fondly like that.
Quite the contrary, she felt a little joyâ€¦
He called me so fondly but not Ceciliaâ€¦ Does it mean that Iâ€™m more important than Cecilia to him? Shang Ying Yue thought.
"With these Blood Essence Stones, my God Body will be healed fast!" Shi Yan threw Shang Ying Yue a glance. She looked like she had a bunch of fawn running around. "Ying Yue, youâ€™re excellent. If it wasnâ€™t for you, I wouldnâ€™t be getting better soon."
Shang Ying Yueâ€™s face was tepid, but the corners of her mouth pulled into a curve of joy, her bright eyes twinkling.
Cecilia smiled but her eyes didnâ€™t. She glared at Shi Yan and said awkwardly, "Oh right, sheâ€™s useful while Iâ€™m useless. I canâ€™t help you with anything."
Shi Yan gave a reluctant dry cough and then said, "I need to recover using the Blood Essence Stones now. You guys should collect all the crystals here. We shouldnâ€™t give this good chance to anybody else."
The two women were stirred up listening to him. Since his situation was stable now, they didnâ€™t need to worry about him more. Their flames of desire for the treasures burned one more time. They regarded him and didnâ€™t wait for him to talk more. They rushed around like the two butterflies. They started to harvest the precious stones.
Taking a deep breath, Shi Yan adjusted his mood to the best condition, picking up one stone from the other ten lying in front of him.
Immortal Demon Blood boiled in his body as if it was stirring up the energy of the Blood Essence Stone. The smaller crystals inside the Blood Essence Stone looked like a blood diamond releasing abundant waves of energy.
The Immortal Demon Blood in his body ignited. Beams of magical, pure Blood Qi flooded in, fusing with the Immortal Demon Blood in his veins. As soon as they had entered his veins, his Demon Blood condensed faster. It was almost instantaneous as one ruby drop was produced and it gave him a marvelous feeling.
It seemed like the Blood Essence Stone had helped him urge the energy of his flesh body. It was just a small Blood Essence Stone but the energy it had sent him was endless. Shi Yan thought that he couldnâ€™t use it up this time.
The Blood Essence Stone was worth the top treasure and was most suitable for the Immortal Demon Clan. The Blood Qi from one stone had brought him incredible energy. Shi Yan felt so good that he wanted to laugh out loud.
The wounds in his body closed and healed at a speed that naked eyes could observe. However, it was several times faster than before.
The cut veins were connected. The broken bones were fixed and become even tougher. His flesh wiggled and closed little by little as if someone was sewing them all together. After a while, he looked intact without even a tiny scar.
The Immortal Demon Body was so marvelous. After he got the supply of energy from the stone, he knew that he would fully recover quickly with only one piece of the Blood Essence Stone. The energy stored in this stone was way beyond his estimation!
What a wonderful Original Incipient Grade treasure!
He suddenly felt grateful for Shang Chen because he had arranged for him to enter this area. To Shi Yan, this place was a treasure. As long as he put his head in it and searched more, he would receive the best surprise of earth and heaven.
Finally, Shi Yan knew why the outstanding prodigies of the God Clan and the other star areas in this cosmos had risked everything to get here. This place had things worth paying with their lives!
