Chapter 1073: Extremely Weak
The invisible spiritual storm rotated around Tian Huo zun-zhe. His body was floating through the air while wave after wave of strange ripples were continuously formed around his body. His indifferent eyes turned to the shocked Bing Fu, but he did not say anything. Instead, his body moved and mysteriously disappeared…
Bing Fu's heart immediately turned cold the instant Tian Huo zun-zhe disappeared. His body hurriedly withdrew as he loudly cried out, "This friend, the old me is Bing Fu from the Ice River Valley. The matter today is unrelated to you. Please do not interfere in today's matter on account of the Ice River Valley! The Ice River Valley will provide you a great reward as thanks after this matter is over!"
There was a thread of panic that was difficult to hide in Bing Fu's cry. This elite eight star Dou Zong, who had just appeared, completely turned the situation around. He could not understand why a little fellow would possess such a terrifying lineup with him.
"Ice River Valley? Is it very great? This alone cannot deter the old me."
The space in front of Bing Fue fluctuated after his voice sounded. Tian Huo zun-zhe's figure strangely appeared. He smiled faintly at the Bing Fue before he swung his palm in a gentle manner.
This palm might appear weak, but Bing Fu felt a heartfelt chilliness. The Dou Qi within his body completely erupted at this moment. Layer after layer of icy-cold armor was formed on the surface of his body from the cold air that lingered around it. The armor was snow-white in color. It might appear crystal clear and weak, but its defensive strength was impressive.
Of course, this kind of strength was not worthy of being mentioned in the eyes of Tian Huo zun-zhe. Although he currently only possessed the strength of an eight star Dou Zong, his knowledge was that of his Dou Zun self back then. A six star Dou Zong was unworthy of any of his attention.
The palm gently landed on the ice armor on Bing Fu's body without a care of the world. A majestic spiritual strength surged out in a flood-like manner!
That firm ice armor's defenses did not hold up in the face of this vast and mighty strength. The palm fell and crack lines spread. After which, the ice armor emitted a cracking sound as it burst apart!
The ice armor was shattered and Bing Fu's expression instantly turned pale. A mouthful of fresh blood carried a chilly air as it was spat out. His body flew backward after that.
Bing Fu's expression turned savage as he flew backwards. His eyes were red as they glared at Tian Huo zun-zhe. Immediately, he roared, "Bing He, lead the others and kill that brat!"
Not far behind Bing Fu, Bing He gradually recovered from the shock brought by Tian Huo zun-zhe. He heard Bing Fu's cry and could only grit his teeth. After which, he waved his hand and spoke to the dozens of elite Ice River Valley disciples behind him, "Follow me, we must capture the Woeful Poison Lady at all cost and kill that brat!"
The dozens of Ice River Valley disciples glanced at Tian Huo zun-zhe in the sky with fearful eyes after hearing this. After which, they turned toward the other battleground in the mountain stream. Bing Yuan was already showing signs of being defeated under the attack of the Earth Demon Puppet. He could not spare any effort to pay attention to the change in the situation of this place.
"Why aren't all of you attacking!"
Bing He let out a stern cry when the Ice River Valley disciples hesitated. Upon hearing his cry, the disciples from the Ice River Valley shivered. After which, they hurriedly voiced their acknowledgement in a respectful manner.
Bing He nodded his head with a gloomy expression when he saw this. His foot pressed against the empty air and his body shot toward Xiao Yan with lightning-like speed. Many Ice River Valley disciples hurriedly activated all of the Dou Qi within their bodies, turning into many colorful glows that surrounded Xiao Yan.
Bing Fu, who was in the air, saw Bing He's group taking action. After which, his eyes were turned to Tian Huo zun-zhe. A dark, ruthless expression flashed across it. A cold aura once again surged within his body. He took the initiative to rush over and get entangled with Tian Huo zun-zhe. In this current situation, it was likely that only by capturing Xiao Yan would they be able to get the puppet and the mysterious spiritual body to surrender. Otherwise, they would only end up dead!
Xiao Yan looked at the people from the Ice River Valley rushing over from the edge of the mountain stream. A cold smile surfaced on his face. He turned his head to the Little Fairy Doctor and softly ordered, "Leave them to me. Do not intervene."
The Little Fairy Doctor nodded slightly. The leader of this group, Bing He, was a two star Dou Zong. Other than him, there were quite a few Dou Huangs. However, Xiao Yan should be able to deal with them all with his strength.
Xiao Yan's foot slowly stepped forward. His hands quickly formed numerous strange seals as he did so. Immediately, an illusionary figure rushed from between his brows. It fluctuated and formed Xiao Yan's appearance. This was the Three Thousand Lightning Illusionary Body that Xiao Yan had practiced. After the tempering at the Heaven Mountain Blood Pool, its current strength should be at the peak of the Dou Huang class. Although he dared to say that he could deal with Bing He using this, it was not a difficult task to block the other Ice River Valley's disciples.
Xiao Yan flicked his finger and the spiritual avatar beside him nodded. His body moved and a silver glow flashed under his feet. He disappeared in a flash. The next time he appeared, he was already behind Bing He. After which, he blocked the many Ice River Valley's disciples.
The spiritual avatar that had suddenly appeared caused Bing He to be startled. Immediately, his eyes turned slightly cold. His gaze stared at Xiao Yan as he spoke with a cold smile, "Brat, you have quite a number of tactics. However, with this one star Dou Zong strength of yours, you are still no match for the old me!"
A shocking ice-cold Dou Qi slowly surged out of Bing He's body after his voice sounded. Cold air lingered over his ten fingers. After which, they transformed into ten sharp ice pricks.
"If word of what happens today reaches the Ice River Valley, you will no longer be able to stay in this Pill Region!"
Bing He let out a dense laugh. His feet stepped through the empty air, and his body transformed into lightning as he shot toward Xiao Yan while carrying a shockingly chilly air.
Xiao Yan merely shook his head slightly as he looked at Bing He, who was rushing over. This person was merely a two star Dou Zong. Xiao Yan had personally killed such a person before he had advanced to the Dou Zong class, there was even less need to discuss this…
Bing He's figure flashed. He appeared in front of Xiao Yan, and he revealed a dark vicious expression in his eyes. His fist that was covered with ice pricks smashed toward Xiao Yan's chest in a vicious manner.
The fist that contained a cold air suddenly arrived within Xiao Yan's dark-black eyes. However, he merely revealed a cold smile. His hand spread out and a jade-green flame slowly surged with a 'puff' sound.
The fist that was filled with ice pricks accurately struck Xiao Yan's palm. However, the ice pricks on it instantly melted when he did so! Even the shockingly cold aura that the fist contained seemed to have met its nemesis at this moment as it quickly scattered. Without the support of the cold air, this punch from Bing He immediately had its strength greatly reduced. It even failed to force Xiao Yan back a single step.
"A two star Dou Zong of the Ice River Valley is actually so weak…"
Xiao Yan's hand was just like a vice-grip as he firmly grabbed Bing He's fist. He gently shook his head and his voice contained faint ridicule. Due to the Heavenly Flame, he was completely immune to the cold force from the Ice River Valley…
Disbelief surged into Bing He's eyes when he saw his attack was so easily blocked by Xiao Yan. His eyes suddenly shrank when he saw the jade-green flame that lingered over Xiao Yan's palm. Immediately, he screamed, "Heavenly Flame?"
Xiao Yan smiled. The chillness in his smile was exceptionally dense. His palm curled and tightened into a fist. After which, he swung his arm forward!
His punch violently smashed into Bing He's body and a shocking hidden force entered him in a lightning-like manner while possessing a wild and violent heat!
The icy-cold Dou Qi within Bing He's body was completely without resistance under the hidden force of this Heavenly Flame. A chi chi sound was emitted as the Dou Qi miserably fled.
The chaotic flow of Dou Qi within his body caused Bing He to spit out a mouthful of fresh blood. Immediately, he clenched his teeth and did his best to maneuver all the Dou Qi within his body. After which, the Dou Qi swiftly agglomerated on his hand!
An increasing amount of ice-cold Dou Qi gathered. One could see a thick layer of ice being formed on Bing He's hand. This ice was crystal clear, appearing just like an icicle. Moreover, there was a serpent-like line on the ice that wiggled like it was alive.
"Ice Serpent Arm!"
Bing He's face was bright-red as a low roar surged from his throat!
The cold air around Bing he instantly surged after his roar sounded. The strength within his arm also increased by multiple times as this occurred!
"Little Bastard, receive a punch from me if you got the guts!"
Bing He's eyes was filled with a crazy killing intent as his face turned red. A furious cry was emitted before he threw his punch forward!
One could see the surrounding air swiftly agglomerate into many ice cubes after he threw his fist forward. This cold air caused the moisture within the air to turn into ice cubes.
The shocking cold air rushed over. However, Xiao Yan's expression did not change. A jade-green flame surged out of his body like a volcano. After which, it gathered onto his right fist in a lightning-like manner. Within a couple of breaths, it had agglomerated into a half-foot-large jade-green fire wolf.
Xiao Yan did not hesitate any longer after the fire wolf was formed. He threw his fist forward!
The fire wolf roared out like rolling waves of water on Xiao Yan's fist. The frightening temperature vaporized the cold air that had come over. After which, it violently collided with Bing He's arm the next instant!
An air wave scattered all around in a ring-like manner after the two collided. The surrounding large rocks emitted cracking sounds and formed numerous cracks with a cracking sound.
This collision continued for merely an instant before that Bing He discovered that the ice on his hand swiftly melted with a shocked expression…
A chillness flashed through Xiao Yan's eyes when he sensed the stalemate between both parties. The strength on his arm surged.
Another force once again surged out. Finally, it broke apart the ice on Bing He's hand. Ice fragments scattered in all directions…
A paleness surged onto Bing He's face in the face of this heavy blow. His footsteps swiftly shifted back. Finally, they violently collided with a large rock. A mouthful of fresh blood was spat out. After which, he raised his head. His face was filled with shock. He really had difficulty imagining that a one star Dou Zong could unleash such a frightening fighting strength…
While Bing He was struggling to stand up once again, a figure appeared in front of him in a ghost-like manner. His toes gently pressed on his forehead, causing Bing He's entire body to immediately stiffened.
"The people from the Ice River Valley are only at this level…"
Chapter 1074: Leave No One
Bing He's expression turned white. His body did not dare to even move a little. He knew that if he dared to make even the slightest unusual movement, his head would be smashed into pieces with a 'bang,' appearing just like a watermelon that had landed on the ground.
Bing He's body maintained his pose of being about to climb to his feet. He swallowed a mouthful of saliva. A moment later, he quietly turned around a little and spoke in a hoarse voice, "If you kill me, this Pill Region will have nowhere that you can hide!"
Xiao Yan looked down at the pale-white face of Bing He from above. However, he merely laughed and said, "Since I have intervened, I am naturally not afraid of whatever Ice River Valley of yours."
"Humph, what an arrogant tone. Don't think that you possess the qualification to fight with the Ice River Valley by possessing an eight star Dou Zong spiritual body and puppet. My strength is merely ranked among the weakest among the Elders of the Ice River Valley. Moreover, even Bing He and Bing Yuan are ranked at the middle. If the true experts from my Ice River Valley come out, the capital that you are proud of will immediately become not even worth mentioning!" Even though Bing had sensed the the situation was a little wrong after hearing Xiao Yan's words, he still involuntarily let out a cold laugh.
Xiao Yan narrowed his eyes. This Ice River Valley was also one of the three valleys. It was likely that its strength was not weaker than the Burning Flame Valley. Just the third Elder of the Burning Flame Valley alone had the strength of an eight star Dou Zong. That second Elder had already reached the peak of the Dou Zong class. Of course, the most frightening person was naturally the Burning Flame Valley's Tang Zhen. Even with Xiao Yan's eyesight, he could only describe Tang Zhen with the words 'unfathomable.' Although it was extremely difficult for Xiao Yan to accurately determine how strong or weak a Dou Zun class expert was, his instincts told him that Tang Zhen's strength was definitely even stronger than Lei zun-zhe from the Wind Lightning Pavilion!
Since the Burning Flame Valley possessed such strength, the Ice River Valley, which was ranked alongside it, would definitely not be weaker. Hence, Xiao Yan did not doubt what Bing He had said. Before he had come to the Pill Region, he had already understood that he would be enemies with the Ice River Valley after rescuing the Little Fairy Doctor. However, with Xiao Yan's character, would he just abandon the Little Fairy Doctor just because of the strength of this Ice River Valley? Back then, when he was merely a small Dou Zhe, who had just stepped onto the path of Dou Qi training, he had already dared to oppose the great being of the Jia Ma Empire. Even less needed to be said now…
Bing He looked at Xiao Yan's silence and thought that he had a change of mind. His tone had also become a little calmer as he said, "If you take the initiative to hand the body of that Woeful Poison Lady to the Ice River Valley, my Ice River Valley will definitely not let you lose out. With your talent, you will definitely be placed in an important position by the Valley Chief. It should be known that our Valley Chief loves getting to know experts from all over the place…"
Bing He's words had just sounded when he saw Xiao Yan's face slowly turn gloomy. Immediately, a chill rose within his heart. His hand slammed against the ground as he hurriedly withdrew with the help of the pushing force.
However, his body had just moved when a cold smile surfaced on Xiao Yan's face. His leg kicked out in a lightning-like manner. It ruthlessly struck Bing He's body. The powerful force caused his body to fly like a kite with a broken string. After which, he heavily smashed into an enormous rock. The sound of bones cracking could faintly be heard.
Droplets of cold perspiration continuously surged onto Bing He's forehead as he slowly rolled down from the large rock. He raised his head and his eyes looked at Xiao Yan viciously. He furiously roared, "Little bastard, you will sooner or later regret these actions of yours today!"
Bing He's roar had just sounded when a white figure suddenly shot over from the sky. It immediately smashed into the enormous rock beside him. A mouthful of fresh blood was spat out. After which, this figure slowly rolled down like a corpse, appearing just like a pile of mud.
Bing He hurriedly turned his head and shock immediately surged into his eyes. He could see that the figure was actually Bing Fu. However, his entire body was covered with fresh blood. His breath was extremely weary and he appeared close to death.
"Ugh, it is really troublesome without a body. It is this annoying just to deal with a Dou Zong…"
An elderly figure slowly appeared beside Xiao Yan. This person was naturally Tian Huo zun-zhe. He glanced at the mud-like Bing Fu and laughed, "I really had an enjoyable time beating him up. However, you can rest assured that the old me made sure that he still had a breath left."
Xiao Yan nodded. He softly said, "Old mister Yao, you can rest assured that the matter of the medicinal ingredients are more or less settled. It is likely that you will be able to soon possess a body once again."
A joy that was difficult to hide surfaced on Tian Huo zun-zhe's face when he heard this. The matter of his body was something that he had always been concerned about. After hearing these words of Xiao Yan, it seemed that the day would not be far away…
"Little fellow, you are really reliable. Ha ha, the eyesight of the old me is as good as ever…"
A glint immediately flickered in the eyes of Bing He when he heard Tian Huo zun-zhe's words, "This elder, our Ice River Valley specializes in refining bodies. Moreover, the bodies that we create will possess some special ability. As long as you help my Ice River Valley perform one task, you will be able to obtain it for free."
The smile on Xiao Yan's face was withdrawn. Dense, cold killing intent gradually surged within his eyes.
Tian Huo zun-zhe was also startled because of Bing He's words. He glanced at Xiao Yan. A strange smile appeared on his face a moment later. He slowly walked to Bing He, lowered his body, and slammed his hand gently on his back. He smiled and said, "Do what? We can discuss it."
"Help the Ice River Valley capture the Woeful Poison Lady. My Ice River Valley can help you refine a body that you will be extremely satisfied with." A wild joy surged over the deep regions of Bing He's eyes when he heard this.
Tian Huo zun-zhe slowly nodded. After which, his hand gently shifted to Bing He's neck. He also sensed this abruptly and all the pores on his body immediately opened up. He threw a palm toward Tian Huo zun-zhe in front of him.
The wind from the palm had yet to reach Tian Huo zun-zhe when his expression turned slightly cold. His hand suddenly used some strength and Bing He's neck was broken amid a cracking sound.
"Little fellow, you should not give such a person the chance to speak in the future. Otherwise, an unexpected change might occur sooner or later…"
Tian Huo zun-zhe randomly tossed aside the ice-cold Bing He before turning his head to Xiao Yan and speaking in a faint manner.
Xiao Yan quietly relaxed his tightly clenched fist. He nodded to Tian Huo zun-zhe, cupped his hands together, and said, "Thank you for your reminder old mister Yao. The battle on the other side should also be ending…"
A silver glow immediately rushed out of the mountain stream after his voice sounded. After which, it appeared in front of Xiao Yan. At this moment, the hands of the Earth Demon Puppet held a bloody-faced Bing Yuan. When he saw Bing Fu, who was like a pile of mud and Bing He with his neck broken, a viciousness immediately shot out of his eyes. He stared intently at Xiao Yan as he said with a hoarse voice, "Little bastard, all of you will not be able to escape!"
Xiao Yan faintly smiled. He received the seriously injured Bing Fu from the hands of the Earth Demon Puppet. After which, his eyes turned to those disciples from the Ice River Valley. He commanded, "Kill them, leave no one alive."
The Earth Demon Puppet immediately flashed out when these words sounded. It charged into the group of Ice River Valley's disciples like a ferocious tiger. Immediately, numerous miserable screams sounded from the edge of this mountain stream.
Under the fierce might of this Earth Demon Puppet, only four of these Ice River Valley's disciples managed to flee. However, their speed was far inferior to the Earth Demon Puppet. They were all caught after a brief chase. After which, they toppled over like wheat in the hands of the Earth Demon puppet.
The Earth Demon Puppet, which was covered with the scent of blood, finally returned after having killed all the disciples from the Ice River Valley within the shortest amount of time. The spiritual avatar of Xiao Yan also returned along with it.
Xiao Yan returned the spiritual avatar to between his eyebrows. After which, he turned his eyes toward the quivering Bing Fu and smiles as he said, "I wish to know something…"
Bing Fu's eyes stared viciously at Xiao Yan. He did not expect Xiao Yan to be so ruthless. He had killed all of them off!
"Little bastard, don't think that the Ice River Valley will not be aware of what has happened here by killing everyone. Just wait, a short while later, you will become the wanted target of the Ice River Valley. At that time, there will not be a single place you can hide in the Pill Region!"
Xiao Yan slightly frowned. He curled his fingers as a wisp of a jade-green flame slowly rose. After which, it was gently pressed on Bing Fu's shoulder. A wave of 'chi chi' sounds was immediately emitted from where Xiao Yan's fingers landed. Bing Fu's face had also become distorted from the intense pain.
"I wish to know what that Ice Zun Force is you mentioned earlier."
Xiao Yan withdrew his finger after watching Bing Fu's distorted face and demanded an answer.
Bing Fu's eyes were vicious. He completely ignored Xiao Yan's words.
Xiao Yan's face was indifferent. His finger pressed onto Bing Fu once again without saying anything!
White smoke rose and Bing Fu's entire body shook. His face had become unusually savage because of the intense pain.
Xiao Yan slowly withdrew his finger and indifferently demanded, "Speak."
Bing Fu's breathing had become ragged. A moment later, he finally clenched his teeth and said with a hoarse voice, "Ice Zun Force is a unique Dou Qi of my Ice River Valley. One much reach the Dou Zong class in order to create it. If this Ice Zun Force enters one's body, it will quietly conceal itself and gradually freeze the blood and veins in one's body…"
"How can it be undone?"
"There is no method to undo it unless you get the Valley Chief of my Ice River Valley to personally do it. However, I don't think that you are capable of that." Bing Fu let out a dense laugh.
Xiao Yan's eyes turned icy-cold. He ignored him and nodded slightly to Tian Huo zun-zhe. After which, he turned around and walked away. He had just taken a few steps when he heard a bone-cracking sound being emitted from behind.
"These are their souls. Keep them…"
Xiao Yan grabbed the three jade bottles that shot over from behind him. He glanced at them and stored them in his Storage Ring. After which, he swiftly walked to the Little Fairy Doctor. He involuntarily felt his heart ache when he saw her pale-white face. He softly said, "Let's leave this place first. I will think of a way to deal with the so-called Ice Zun Force."
The Little Fairy Doctor gently nodded. Her pretty eyes looked at the young man in front of her. Within less than a year, he seemed about to catch up with her…
Xiao Yan extended his arm, grabbed the Little Fairy Doctor's tiny waist. After which, he got the Earth Demon Puppet to bring Xin Lan, who was hiding in one corner. His body moved and he swiftly rushed toward the deeper regions of the Fallen God Stream…
The surroundings of this mountain stream immediately became quiet after Xiao Yan's group left. Only the corpses and fresh blood all over the place gave an indication of the intense battle that had erupted at this spot earlier…
Chapter 1075: Recuperate
Sticky fresh blood was scattered on the stone fragments beside the mountain stream. A dense bloody scent was emitted. Numerous ice-cold corpses had collapsed in a mess beside the stone fragments.
Everything in this place was quiet. Only a bloody scent that refused to disappear lingered, indicating that an intense battle had occurred here earlier.
The silence in this place continued for a long time. Only then was it broken by the many sounds of rushing wind that suddenly appeared in the sky. Their expressions changed suddenly when they discovered the corpses on the ground.
An elderly figure slowly landed on an enormous rock. From the looks of his appearance, he was that elder from the Ice River Valley who had been guarding the entrance to the Fallen God Stream.
The Ice River Valley elder stopped and looked on with shock at the ground full of bodies. With a twist of his body, he appeared behind a large stone and stared unbelieving at three corpses before him. A couple seconds later, he took in a deep breath.
"Elder Bing Xian…"
An Ice River Valley's disciple with a similarly pale-white face landed beside the old man. He swallowed a mouthful of saliva and softly said, "All the corpses of the elites from the Ice River Valley, who had headed to the Fallen God Stream to search for the Woeful Poison Body, are here. They include… Bing Fu and the other two Elders."
The Elder, who was called Bing Xian, involuntarily shut his eyes. His eyes were already murky when he opened them once again. "Carry all the corpses back. I want to return to the Ice River Valley immediately!" Bing Xian turned around and left after speaking. His expression appeared unusually gloomy.
The disciple from the Ice River Valley nodded. He looked at the corpses of the three old men and a chill involuntarily rose within his heart. These are three expert Dou Zongs. Who possessed such a frightening strength to kill all of them?
Although Bing Xian did not know who the murderer was, he knew that this Pill Region might well cease to be calm in the future. With the strength of the Ice River Valley, it would definitely not sit back and do nothing in the face of three of its Elders being killed!
While these Ice River Valley's disciples were dealing with the messy situation, Xiao Yan was gently placing the Little Fairy Doctor down in a secret mountain cave in the deepest parts of this Fallen God Stream, far from the mountain stream. He took out a Moonlight Stone and shot it into the wall of the cave. A gentle light immediately scattered down, expelling the darkness within the cave.
Xin Lan stood beside the Little Fairy Doctor. She hurriedly took out some warm fur from her Storage Ring when she saw her pale face. After which, she placed it on the ground and softly said, "Little Fairy Doctor jie-jie, rest first."
The Little Fairy Doctor smiled and nodded to Xin Lan. She sat down on the warm fur before lifting her eyes to look at Xiao Yan by the side. She appeared to have recalled something as she suddenly said, "It has been less than a year, but you have broken through to the Dou Zong class… in that case, have you resolved the Demon Poison Spot in your body?"
Xiao Yan involuntarily and helplessly smiled when he heard this. He said, "Now is not the time to bother about that Demon Poison Spot. You should take care of your body fist."
The Little Fairy Doctor held her cheeks with her hands. She blinked her curly eyelashes. Her voice appeared extremely soft due to her weak tone, "I'm still alright. It will be fine if I rest for a period of time…"
Xiao Yan understood the Little Fairy Doctor's character extremely well. He ignored her words, squatted down, and grabbed the Little Fairy Doctor's snow-white hand. A thread of Spiritual Strength was carefully transmitted into the her body. It was only slowly withdrawn after a careful examination.
Xiao Yan's expression was a little ugly when he withdrew his Spiritual Strength. At this moment, the situation in the Little Fairy Doctor's body was extremely terrible. Quite a number of places within her were seriously injured. Moreover, the thing that caused Xiao Yan's heart to sink was that so-called Ice Zun Force. He was unable to detect where it was. However, he could vaguely sense that the Ice Zun Force hidden in Little Fairy Doctor's body was emitting an ice cold temperature, gradually freezing the blood and veins in the Little Fairy Doctor's body…
"Xin Lan, do you know about the Ice River Valley Ice Zun Force?" Xiao Yan turned his head, looked at Xin Lan, and asked.
Xin Lan mused for a moment after hearing his question. After which, she replied, "Based on what I know, this Ice Zun Force is a unique Dou Qi that the Ice River Valley possesses. Moreover, only an expert Dou Zong will be able to practice and form a tiny amount of it. However, if this Ice Zun Force is inserted into the opponent's body when exchanging blow, it would cause the situation to become extremely troublesome for the opponent. Therefore, quite a number of experts specifically defend against the Ice Zun Force when fighting against the people from the Ice River Valley… even I am uncertain about the method to remove it…"
Xiao Yan slightly frowned. He looked at the pale-white face of the Little Fairy Doctor and involuntarily felt a heartache. His hand gently fondled her long, snow-white hair. He must get rid of this Ice Zun Force as soon as possible. Otherwise, the Little Fairy Doctor would never be able to recover from her injuries.
"This Ice Zun Force is indeed strange and unique. However, it is not something that only the Ice River Valley's Valley Chief could remove as Bing Fu had mentioned."
Xiao Yan once again inserted his Spiritual Strength into the Little Fairy Doctor's body. He sensed the uniqueness of the Ice Zun Force, and he slowly opened his eyes. He knit his eyebrows and fell deep into thought. This continued for half an hour before he relaxed his tight frown. He waved his hand and a wooden box appeared in the mountain cave. With a flick of his finger, some water that he had prepared in his Storage Ring flowed out and filled the wooden tub.
After doing all this, Xiao Yan clenched his hand and a cluster of jade-green flames surged out. His finger was gently flicked and many medicinal ingredients rushed out of his Storage Ring. After which, they were inserted into the flame and swiftly vaporized, transforming into a somewhat bright-red powders and liquids.
After having thrown all these powders and liquids into the tub, the clear water within immediately transformed into a bright-red color. Moreover, there were still water bubbles rising on the surface, causing it to appear as though it was boiling…
The clear water within the wooden tub was immediately filled with a hot fire affinity energy following the many powders and liquids that were poured in. This fire affinity energy was extremely dense. However, it was strangely gentle.
"Xin Lan, remove the Little Fairy Doctor clothes and help her into the tub…"
Xiao Yan suddenly turned around after throwing in the final medicinal ingredient before speaking in a faint voice.
Xin Lan and the Little Fairy Doctor were startled when they heard this. An alluring bright redness immediately surged onto the Little Fairy Doctor's pale-white face
Xin Lan's eyes exchanged looks with the Little Fairy Doctor. Only after that did she move gently and walk to the Little Fairy Doctor's side. After which, Xin Lu gently removed her clothes even though the Little Fairy Doctor's bright-red peach-blossom face was clearly visible.
After the removal of her clothes, one could see her perfect-white jade-like smooth body revealed in this ice-cold air.
Xiao Yan let out a soft sigh of relief after hearing the slight sound of someone entering the water. He turned around and saw the Little Fairy Doctor curling herself up in the wooden tub. The pretty face, that was revealed over the surface of the water, was an alluring bashful-red.
"Absorb the energy inside and circulate it around your body! It might be a little pain, but it will be fine if you endure it a little."
Xiao Yan softly instructed. After which, he flicked his ten fingers gently and ten wisps of jade-green flames suddenly shot out. After which, they emitted 'chi' sounds as they entered the wooden tub like jade-green water snakes.
The surface of the water appeared to be boiling as it repeatedly emitted hundreds of bubbles following the entry of the Glazed Lotus Heart Flame into the wooden tub. The Little Fairy Doctor, who was soaking within it, emitted a groan from her throat. The boiling hot feeling caused her to feel as though she was in a sea of flames.
"Although it will be a little painful, the Heavenly Flame will allow the medicinal strength to enter your body in an even more perfect manner. At the same time, it will also suppress the Ice Zun Force from spreading…"
Xiao Yan hurriedly explained when he saw the Little Fairy Doctor tightly frowning.
The Little Fairy Doctor tightly bit her lower red lip with the back of her teeth. She nodded and formed a training seal with her hands under the water. After which, she endured the boiling hot feeling and swiftly absorbed the dense fire affinity medicinal strength that was within the wooden basin.
The water within the wooden basin gradually formed a whirlpool under the Little Fairy Doctor's absorption. Numerous wisps of red-colored energy repeatedly surged into the Little Fairy Doctor's body at a speed visible to the naked eye.
Following the bright-red energy entering the Little Fairy Doctor's body, her pale-white face gradually turned red. Strangely, an extremely icy-cold vapor was being emitted from one side while a faint-red-colored, hot vapor was being emitted on the other side. At a glance, the entire situation was exceptionally strange.
"It is really effective!"
Xin Lan by the side joyfully exclaimed after seeing this scene.
Xiao Yan sighed in relief within his heart. It was fortunate that there was not much Ice Zun Force within the Little Fairy Doctor's body. Otherwise, even if he had a method that could work, it was likely impossible to completely remove the Ice Zun Force without at least ten days or half a month.
"Xin Lan, you have a better understanding of the Pill Region. Therefore, I wish to ask you for help." Xiao Yan turned his head, looked at Xin Lan, and spoke in a deep voice after seeing that the Ice Zun Force in the Little Fairy Doctor's body was gradually being removed.
"Yes, big brother Xiao Yan, please tell me what to do."
"Leave this Fallen God Stream and help me gather all of these medicinal ingredients…" Xiao Yan took out a piece of white paper from his Storage Ring. The names of some medicinal ingredients were written on it. All of them were the medicinal ingredients he needed to help Tian Huo zun-zhe refine a body. He had already killed many people from the Ice River Valley. It was likely that he had formed a death feud with them. Therefore, Xiao Yan needed to be prepared!
Xin Lan glanced at the white paper after receiving it. She involuntarily became speechless. The names of the medicinal ingredients that were written on it were some she had never even heard of. However, she still nodded and said, "Big brother Xiao Yan, please be reassured that if I fail to gather all of them, I will return to the clan and take them for you!"
Xiao Yan quietly nodded. He flicked his finger and the Earth Demon Puppet flashed and appeared, "It will protect you during this trip. However, it is best that you place some clothing over it before leaving the Fallen God Stream in order to avoid attention."
Xin Lan solemnly nodded. She could guess the importance of this matter to Xiao Yan and did not stay for long. After carefully storing the white paper into her Storage Ring, she swiftly walked out of the cave. The Earth Demon Puppet followed close behind her.
Xiao Yan withdrew his gaze after watching Xin Lan disappear from the cave's exit. He threw his eyes back to the Little Fairy Doctor in the wooden tub. A cold glint flashed across his eyes. Ice River Valley… this matter will not be resolved easily!
Chapter 1076: Traces of the Sky Poison Dragon Scorpion Beast
The expulsion of the Ice Zun Force from the Little Fairy Doctor's body took nearly four days of Xiao Yan's time. Xiao Yan had mixed around a hundred types of medicinal ingredients' medicinal strength into the water during these four days. After which, he allowed the Little Fairy Doctor to absorb all of them into her body. Only then was the Ice Zun Force, hidden in her body, gradually forced out.
Due to this, Xiao Yan felt that the Ice Zun Force of the Ice River Valley was troublesome to deal with. However, this special Dou Qi that could only be practiced after one had reached the strength of a Dou Zong did indeed have extraordinary aspects.
Xiao Yan was seated cross-legged on a stone within the warmly lit mountain cave. A wooden tub with rising heat was in front of him. The wooden tub was filled with a bright-red medicinal liquid. The Little Fairy Doctor was seated within it. She bit her lower red lip with the back of her teeth and droplets of perspiration formed while carrying some cold air. After which, they rolled down her face and fell into the wooden tub. The perspiration was subsequently scattered by the heat within the medicinal liquid.
At this moment, most of the medicinal liquid within the wooden tub had been absorbed. Hence, the Little Fairy Doctor's smooth shoulders had been revealed. The medicinal liquid dripped onto one and quietly rolled down. She appeared like a top quality suet-jade, causing one to feel an unwillingness to part with her.
A faint fog rose from the wooden tub. A couple of threads of snow-white hair fell onto Little Fairy Doctor's forehead. They set off her pretty face, that was dripping some sweet perspiration, causing her to appear exceptionally enchanting. Her grayish-purple eyes gently blinked, releasing an unusually shocking allure.
Bright-red medicinal strength surged into the Little Fairy Doctor's body from the wooden tub. This continued for a long time before her lovely body suddenly shook. Her small mouth widened and a small ice cube, formed from cold air, shot out of her mouth and struck an enormous rock in the cave. Immediately, that piece of rock was covered by a thick layer of ice amid a cracking sound. The paleness on the Little Fairy Doctor's face diminished after this tiny ice cube left her body. A sleek-red color slowly appeared.
Xiao Yan, who was training with his eyes shut, quickly opened them to this commotion. He saw the Little Fairy Doctor's expression as he involuntarily rejoiced. He asked, "Has the Ice Zun Force been removed from your body?"
The Little Fairy Doctor smiled sweetly and nodded.
"That's good. This thing is troublesome to deal with. I have tried nearly a hundred types of medicinal ingredients in order to concoct a suitable medicinal strength…" Xiao Yan sighed in relief when he saw her nod. He immediately sighed in relief and smiled as he said, "Since the Ice Zun Force had been removed, you should not be in a serious condition. The injuries in your body are a small matter now. I have the confidence to help you swiftly recover."
The Little Fairy Doctor nodded once again. She did not doubt Xiao Yan's pill refinement abilities at all.
"You… can you turn around first?" The Little Fairy Doctor's eyes turned away. A bright redness suddenly flew onto her pretty face as she softly asked.
Xiao Yan was initially startled when he heard this. Immediately, he gave her an embarrassed smile and hurriedly turned around. He twisted his head to one side as he did so.
The Little Fairy Doctor quietly sighed in relief after seeing Xiao Yan turn around as he had been told. She bit her lower red lip with the back of her teeth and moved her lovely body. Her hand moved as her body rose from the wooden tub and a clean, white-colored dress flew out of her Storage Ring. Within an instant, it wrapped around her perfect, clean body…
Xiao Yan only turned around after hearing her gentle voice escape her lips from behind him. He looked at the lady, who appeared exceptionally fresh in a white-colored dress, and an amazed expression involuntarily flashed past his eyes. The Little Fairy Doctor's current demeanor was just like when Xiao Yan had met her for the first time back in Qingshan Town. She was just like a piece of jade that warmed one's heart.
The current her was truly like the Little Fairy Doctor from back then. She was viewed as a goddess in the hearts of those mercenaries from Qingshan Town and not the Poison Sect Poison Lady from the Chu Yun Empire, a name everyone feared…
Xiao Yan slowly withdrew the surprise in his eyes and involuntarily felt a little pleased. The period of time in the Chu Yun Empire was likely the darkest period in the Little Fairy Doctor's heart. Even with his company later on, she still appeared a little quiet. Clearly, she was influenced by her memories of that time. However, when Xiao Yan saw her today, this girl, who had a desolate and pitiful background, appeared to have begun to walk away from the shadow of her memory during that period of time.
The current her was truly the Little Fairy Doctor whom Xiao Yan was acquainted with back then.
"What are you looking at?" The Little Fairy Doctor curled her pretty eyes a little as she softly laughed. Her beautiful eyes danced.
"Looking at a beauty…" Xiao Yan teasingly laughed. After which, he leaped down from the large rock and landed beside the Little Fairy Doctor. He grabbed the other party's snow-white wrist, shut his eyes, and once again begin to probe the injuries within her body.
The Little Fairy Doctor's pretty eyes looked at the young face in front of her. This face might not be as young nor as handsome as those she had seen over the years, but he was just like good wine as it seeped into one's heart, causing one to feel exceptionally warm.
The Little Fairy Doctor muttered to herself using a soft voice only she could hear. Immediately, a faint warm smile was lifted on her pretty face. This smile was different from the past. At this moment, it seemed that something was added to it, causing this pretty smile to appear even more alluring and warm.
Xiao Yan had shut his eyes. He slowly opened them a moment later and said to the Little Fairy Doctor with a grin, "The situation is much better than I had thought. Take this medicinal pill. You should be able to recover to your peak within two to three days." Xiao Yan took out a round medicinal pill from his Storage Ring and handed it to the Little Fairy Doctor.
The Little Fairy Doctor extended her hand and took the medicinal pill. She slightly nodded. It seemed that she could be much more relaxed with Xiao Yan beside her.
"How is your Woeful Poison Body?" Xiao Yan's glanced at the Little Fairy Doctor's expression and suddenly asked a question.
"I'm alright. However, there should only be two to three months until it erupts. I am able to sense it." The Little Fairy Doctor smiled. That causal manner of hers appeared as though she was speaking about something else.
"This is alright?" Xiao Yan intently frowned. His voice involuntarily dipped. He was a little unhappy about the attitude the Little Fairy Doctor used to treat herself.
The Little Fairy Doctor slightly smiled after appearing to have heard the displeasure in Xiao Yan's voice. She softly said, "Even if the poison body really erupts and attacks my consciousness, I will definitely still recognize you at that time…"
The memory of the person in front of her occupied a large portion of her life. He was her first friend, and her only good friend that she acknowledged from her heart. This simple friend seemed to have deviated into something else within her heart. His weight in her heart had become heavier…
"You are really only speaking nonsense. Relax, I will obtain the Monster Core of the Sky Poison Dragon Scorpion Beast within these two to three months. At that time, I will be able to allow you to completely control the Woeful Poison Body…" Xiao Yan helplessly shook his head as he promised. Although he already possessed a rank 6 Monster Core of the Sky Poison Dragon Scorpion Beast in his Storage Ring, it did not satisfy the requirements. Unless he really ended up reaching that stage, Xiao Yan did not intend to risk using it. After all, this was related to whether or not the Little Fairy Doctor would live or die.
"Sky Poison Dragon Scorpion Beast…"
The Little Fairy Doctor's pretty eyes blinked when she heard this. A strange expression surfaced on her face. She hesitated for a moment before saying, "If it is the Sky Poison Dragon Scorpion Beast, we will be able to find one in this Fallen God Stream…"
Xiao Yan was startled. A wild joy suddenly appeared on his face as he asked, "What rank is it at?"
"Rank 7, I think. It is able to transform into a human form." Little Fairy Doctor softly replied.
"You have seen it? Where?" The wild joy in Xiao Yan's eyes became denser as he hurriedly asked.
"Poison objects roam the interior of the Fallen God Stream. It does not lack poison Magical Beasts with terrifying strengths. This place possesses some Magical Beast factions scattered around. Moreover, the Sky Poison Dragon Scorpion Beast is coincidentally an overlord of this Fallen God Stream." The Little Fairy Doctor's hand parted a thread of snow-white hair on her forehead. The strange expression on her face became even more prominent as she said, "Not long after I entered the Fallen God Stream, I met that Sky Poison Dragon Scorpion Beast… that fellow was like a lunatic after seeing me. He repeatedly howled, wanting to capture me to be his woman. Back then, I was seriously injured and did not wish to get entangled with that maniac. All I could do was think of a way to escape…"
Xiao Yan was stunned. He looked at the strange expression on the Little Fairy Doctor's face with surprise. A moment later, he could not help but shake his head. He laughed, feeling that the entire situation was comical, "Looks like your charm is too much to handle. Even a Magical Beast has become crazily attracted to you. He even wishes to capture you to make you his wife."
"What is there to laugh about! That fellow clearly fancies the Woeful Poison Body!" A bright redness surfaced on the Little Fairy Doctor's face as she chided when she heard Xiao Yan's teasing.
Xiao Yan ceased laughing, aware that the Little Fairy Doctor was right. His eyes revealed an excited expression as he said, "What is that large fellow's strength like?"
"I never exchanged blows with him. However, it is likely that his strength is even greater than Bing Fu and the others. Based on my guess, he should have reached the eight star Dou Zong level…" The Little Fairy Doctor voiced her thoughts.
"An eight star Dou Zong huh…" Xiao Yan nodded in acknowledgement. Fortunately, it was not a bone that he could not chew.
"You should recuperate first. Once your injuries are completely healed, we will attack that Sky Poison Dragon Scorpion Beast. If we can obtain its Monster Core, the problem of the Woeful Poison Body will be completely resolved…" Xiao Yan mused for a moment before waving his hand and announcing his decision.
The Little Fairy Doctor gently nodded when she heard his words. The Woeful Poison Body was a large stone that had been pressing on her heart for a long time. It would naturally be best if she could completely resolve it…
"Before this, I will also need to make some preparations and ensure that no accidents will occur…"
Xiao Yan smiled. His body moved, and he once again sat on the rock. An excited expression flashed across his dark-black eyes. He really wanted to know just what level the Little Fairy Doctor would reach after completely controlling her Woeful Poison Body. Would she leap to the Dou Zun class? If that was possible, would he not possess two elite Dou Zuns beside him, including Tian Huo zun-zhe?
Even Xiao Yan could not help but feel his emotions surge when he thought of this. In the past, he never would have expected two extraordinary experts to gather beside him.
