Wait until Zhi Yan repossessed her body later, she would be in charge of suppressing the eye of the array. While Shi Qi would stay by her side, not letting other things in the array disturb her. Qin Qian Xian would enter the array to lead the way. I would follow him in and find my body.
As I finished saying these words, the Hour of the Rat ended and Zhi Yan returned to her body.
*Hour of the Rat (子时 – zǐ shí) – between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m.
Seeing the current situation, she became a little confused: “Everyone… Is here…”
Without having much time to explain to her in detail, I told her to stand by Mo Qing’s side and use all of her strength to suppress the eye of the array. Then I glided before her, staring at her intently: “Zhi Yan, whether I can resurrect or not, it’s all in your hands.”
She froze for a moment. Then she gritted her teeth, pulled the sword out of its sheath, and calmed her state of mind: “Great Demon King, you have saved me so many times. This time, even if I risk my life, I will still help you suppress the eye of the array.”
I smiled and stepped aside.
I saw Zhi Yan raise Liu He Tian Yi Sword high, as she gathered all of the magic in her body. All of a sudden, she made the sword’s blade pierced into the earth where the eye of the array was located. As a resounding “boom” shook heaven and earth, Zhi Yan clenched her teeth tightly. When Mo Qing withdrew Wan Jun Sword, all of the power that was suppressing the eye of the array instantly transferred to Zhi Yan’s hands.
“In four hours, I’ll be out.”
Zhi Yan’s power was not as strong as Mo Qing’s, so suppressing the eye of the array had consumed all of her energy. She did not even have the time to talk to the people beside her; she just lowered her eyes and focused on the eye of the array. As the cold sweat accumulated on her forehead, it fell down drop by drop.
Qin Qian Xian got up, and led me into the cave. Before entering the cave, I turned my head to look at Mo Qing. He was looking at the entrance of the cave. Although he could not see me, his gaze was attentive: “Lu Zhao Yao.” As he called out my name, his voice was so calm. I could not help it but be emotionally affected, “I will purge the disorder in Wan Lu Sect, and wait for you to come back.”
He could not hear me, but I solemnly answered: “Okay.”
I would return.
This time, I would no longer disappoint your waiting.
I followed Qin Qian Xian and glided into the magic array. His steps were steady, neither fast nor slow. I blindly followed behind him, only to see that the scene of ice and snow beside me was exactly the same cave I saw when I consumed the Resurrection Pills.
Also, the deeper I walked inside, that indescribable throbbing in my chest got stronger.
This was perhaps… The bond between the soul and the body?
“I placed your body here, do you hate me?” He abruptly started talking, knowing that he could not hear
