Huhuh, relax Elder You, relax. Wen Yiqing moved forward, displayed a high-quality crystal, and stuffed it in the elders hands.
Only then did Elder Yous face ease a little. He took the crystal without turning a hair as his eyes glanced at the others.
Seeing this, they sighed with relief. It turned out that he had deliberately been making things difficult to extort some benefits.
Everyone smiled as they presented valuable gifts to Elder You, putting a sprinkle of joy on his face. He loosened his lips. You may proceed.
What baffled everyone, including Wei Yiqing, was that Elder You did not demand any gifts from Su Yu and treated him as if he didnt exist.
But peculiarities aside, they were reluctant to complicate things at this crucial moment, and thus, entered the teleportation station alongside Su Yu.
After inserting the crystal, the teleportation portal slowly began spiraling, and they felt a deep sense of relief.
There was a thud, indicating they had been successfully teleported.
However, they felt something strange was going on.
This isnt right! The prefecture I live in is very far away. The teleportation would at least go on for an hour, why would it
Beware everyone! This is a short-distance teleportation spell!! It is not the divine-level teleportation spell!
Within the Great Teleportation Hall, Elder You revealed a cruel smirk at the corner of his mouth as he retrieved a hidden magical treasure from an inconspicuous corner of the teleportation station.
The magical treasure was a simple teleportation portal capable of being disguised.
They had all believed they were stepping on a divine-level teleportation portal. Little did they know that they had actually stepped onto a simple teleportation portal that had been swapped out.
The place they were teleported to was naturally not the prefecture they had wanted to go to.
They were panic-stricken. They quickly sized up their surroundings, only to find a scene that sent chills down their bones.
They had not been teleported to any recognizable part of Jiuzhou. They had been sent into a dark chamber.
In the chamber, corpses were lying all over the ground. All their hearts had been dug out, and their souls had gone astray!
The soaring stench of blood accompanied by the strong putrid smell of death was extremely uncomfortable.
Huh-uh, so many have arrived. How thoughtful of you, Yiqing. A hoarse yet pleasant voice came from a murky corner.
A demonic lady came toward them with light footsteps. She had streaming white hair, purple lips, and bloody eyes!
Her face was ethereal, but a demonic aura was emanating from all over her body!
Seeing this person, everyones heart sank.
The Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy!!
No one had seen her in person, but they had seen her portrait that had been circulated across the realm!
With astonishment, they realized that the person in the chamber was the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy herself!
Wen Yiqing! Y you betrayed us! The previously apathetic old woman was trembling, either in anger or fear.
Wen Yiqing was respectfully kneeling in front of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy. His back was facing the crowd and without even looking back, he said indifferently, How great an honor it is to supply the master with your flesh and blood and to become one with her splendor!
You! Have you been lying to us all along? Have you forged the story of your fathers death too?
Wen Yiqing stood up, turned around, and looked at the crowd with compassion. Of course that is true! It is just that after I received the message about my father, I felt that we should all turn to the master. No good will dawn upon us if we were to oppose her. Hence, I wished to go with the current, aiding the master by subtly gathering all the aces from the city for her to replenish her Primordial Qi.
To gain your trust, I had to put up a better act in everything, whether important or trivial.
Hearing his words, the crowd felt iciness in their limbs!
This was simply a trap that had been set for them!
Who would care about the whereabouts of those powerful individuals who had left the Central Prefecture?
Even if someone discovered their disappearance, it had not happened within the boundaries of the Central Prefecture!
You, scum, devoid of conscience, to hell with you! The old woman surged with killing intent and jabbed her crutch at Wen Yiqing.
In the next moment, her body was abruptly blown up like a balloon, and she became a pile of flesh!
A beating heart appeared in the hands of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy who was standing in the same spot as if she hadnt moved at all. Amidst a bloody smile, she devoured the beating heart!
The scene struck fear into the crowd, depriving them of even the courage to resist as they waited to be slaughtered.
The Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy was indulging in pleasure as she acclaimed, Well done. Carry on your work in luring those aces from the city. When my Primordial Qi recovers, aiding you into becoming a mortal fairy will be a cakewalk.
Wen Yiqing wore a passionate expression but was slightly surprised after he glanced at Su Yu behind him. Master, are you not planning to feast on that person?
Hm? Is there someone behind you? The Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy looked around. There was no one.
Wen Yiqing was shocked. He turned his head around to look at Su Yu who was right in front of his very eyes and turned back to look at the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy with a bewildered expression.
The Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy narrowed her eyes slightly. Could I not see the person that you could?
Who are you? Wen Yiqing asked Su Yu, coming to his senses.
In spite of that, Su Yu just stood in front of him. He was motionless and his hands were clasped behind his back.
Feeling that something wasnt right, Wen Yiqing yelled and charged towards Su Yu. His attack pierced through his body. Su Yus body of blood and flesh crumbled, splattering blood everywhere.
Wen Yiqing became even more confused. Could he have seen a ghost?
Master, I Wen Yiqing was unable to comprehend what had just happened.
The Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy closed her eyes. When she reopened them, a slender ray penetrated Wen Yiqing.
Wen Yiqing was abruptly possessed. His vision rippled as if something was dispelled.
Ah! His corpse is missing! Appalled, Wen Yiqing discovered that Su Yus body had vanished into thin air. Even the bloodstains on his body were all gone.
You have run into a master in illusionary techniques, the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy said faintly. What I lifted from you just now was an illusion technique. Im afraid that this person has already seen through your luring schemes.
Wen Yiqing was shocked. What? An illusionary technique? Was what I saw of him an illusion all along?
He suddenly recalled that Elder You who was looking after the teleportation station had also disregarded Su Yus existence entirely.
At first, he thought that Elder You had been looking down on his cultivation and so, was treating him most contemptuously, not even bothering to ask him for some benefits.
Thinking about it now, it was because Elder You was not under an illusionary technique. Hence, he had never seen Su Yu!
In the meantime, he and the rest of the All Creation Old Monsters were all put under an illusion and thought that Su Yu was around.
In fact, Su Yus actual-self had already retreated long ago when he placed all of them under an illusion.
They had not discovered anything about him from the beginning until the end!
So where is he now? said Wen Yiqing in dismay.
The Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy said, Well find out presently. Our plans have almost succeeded. We should leave via the divine-level teleportation portal.
What? Wouldnt we mess things up in this way? Master, your existence might be exposed, drawing powerful individuals from all across Jiuzhou. Wen Yiqing turned pale.
The Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy, however, said casually, I have recovered 30% of my Primordial Qi. If it isnt at least two Mortal Fairies working together, whoever comes to me will become mere supplements to my Primordial Qi!
Hearing that, We Yiqing was slightly relieved.
There is still someone in here, but Im afraid that she has also escaped, the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy said indifferently while pointing at an unsightly woman. This body has long withered and has already been taken away. I presume that she is already close to success in using the divine-level teleportation portal by now.
Wen Yiqing was drenched in cold sweat as he dropped to his knees. Please forgive me, Master! My incompetence has allowed two people to escape!
Your cultivation is too low. Youre not to be blamed. Um, are you aware of the identity of the two? the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy asked. After the emergence of the divine energy outburst, she had been cautious. She relocated herself to the chamber and had completely sealed her aura.
Now that two suspicious individuals had appeared, she couldnt resist asking about them as she had always felt uneasy on the inside.
Im not quite sure about that woman, but I do recognize that young man! Speaking of which, you wouldve recognized him too, master. My original intention was to bring him back for you as a surprise.
The Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy was surprised. Oh? Who is he?
What? Him?! In an instant, the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairys white hair rose into the air as a terrifying aura rippled across her body with her demonic face inundated within rage and bitterness. The expression on her face was just like that of a malicious spirit!
Hahahaha, Su Yu, Su Yu. You refuse to walk on the path of heaven but have chosen to break into hell with no door!!! The Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy lifted her head unleashing a sinister laugh, while awe-inspiringly ejecting chilling demonic energy from her fingers as she morphed into an inky mist and vanished within the chamber.
