The spirit was stunned. Suddenly, he cackled icily. His gloomy and eerie laughter filled the cave dwelling and caused goosebumps to appear on one’s skin.
“Hehe, so what if you’ve managed to identify me as a demibeast human? It doesn’t change the final conclusion anyway.”
The spirit laughed icily as if he does not place any importance on Gu Ruoyun’s words.
Gu Ruoyun ignored his attitude as she continued to speak with a small smile on her face, “I’ve heard that if one were to refine the soul of a demibeast human, it would be a great tonic for a fellow demibeast human.”
The spirit’s face sank immediately and he stared eerily at Gu Ruoyun as his body was enveloped with murderous intent.
“You want to use my soul and give it to this brat as a tonic?”
Gu Ruoyun smiled serenely, “If I can use your soul as a tonic, his cultivation speed would become even faster in the future! Otherwise, why did you think I had wanted to follow him here?”
She had come here today to help Lan Ge increase his power.
After all, one can only come across a demibeast human’s soul serendipitously.
Especially since this demibeast human had the power of a ninth transformation cultivator when he was alive!
If Lan Ge could ingest this demibeast human’s soul, he could be promoted to the ninth transformation state!
Hearing this, Lan Ge’s eyes carried a complicated air and his thoughts were conflicted. He had never expected Gu Ruoyun to journey into this cave dwelling to help him raise his power.
“Little girl, if you want to refine my spirit, that would depend on whether you have that ability!” The spirit narrowed his eyes as he exclaimed eerily.
“I alone do not have this power but…” Gu Ruoyun’s eyes flashed as she smiled gently. “If I were to use the Ninth Underworld Flames?”
As soon as Gu Ruoyun had spoken, the Ninth Underworld Flames ignited on her palm. The flames illuminated the entire cave dwelling as it danced in her hand.
The Ninth Underworld Flame was the bane of any soul!
If the spirit still has the level of power he had when he was alive, Gu Ruoyun would not be able to do anything to him even if she had used the Ninth Underworld Flames. Unfortunately, his powers have regressed after so many years. Furthermore, because he does not have a physical body and was a spirit, the Ninth Underworld Flames in Gu Ruoyun’s hand was a fatal weapon to him!
The spirit finally felt fear when he saw the Ninth Underworld Flames. He let out a sharp shriek but before he could beg for mercy, the Ninth Underworld Flame had started to burn his soul.
The severe agony made the spirit tremble all over and he could no longer behave arrogantly. He shook as he pleaded, “I was wrong, I should not have coveted this boy’s body. Please spare me, I will give everything I’ve saved up these past few years to you.”
Unfortunately, Gu Ruoyun had remained indifferent to the spirit’s pleas.
Very soon, the spirit had been turned into a speck of light under the immense agony and landed in Gu Ruoyun’s hands.
Gu Ruoyun gave the soul orb over to Lan Ge and calmly said, “He had wanted to take your physical body and now, I’ve given you his soul as a form of revenge. Swallow it.”
Lan Ge looked at Gu Ruoyun with gratitude before he swallowed the soul without hesitation.
However, he did not feel anything after he had swallowed the soul, it was almost as if he had just swallowed a bit of air.
“His soul holds the power of a cultivator at the early stage of the ninth transformation state. If you digest his soul completely, you can also break through to the ninth transformation state. However, you can’t digest this soul all in one go. Everything must be done slowly.”
