Chapter 891: Qian Bai Two Elders
The two gray-colored human figures had appeared without the slightest forewarning. Xiao Yan had not sensed anything before his eyes saw them. This sudden unexpected change had also caused his changing hand seals to pause a little. He was silent for a moment as his eyes glanced at the large fireball. Finally, he involuntarily cried out in a stern voice, "Two sirs, the fireball is about to explode. Hurry up and leave!"
Having heard the reminder from Xiao Yan's cry, the two gray-robed figures beside the enormous fireball slowly raised their heads. Their old and experienced eyes calmly glanced at Xiao Yan. This random glance caused Xiao Yan to realize that the intensely churning wild and violent medicinal strength within his body had actually calmed down…
Surprise involuntarily surfaced in Xiao Yan's eyes as he sensed this change within his body. They were able to suppress the revolting medicinal strength within his body from such a great distance. This strength… was it not too unnatural and frightening? Just who were these two mysterious gray-robed experts? Since when did such frightening experts exist in the 'Black-Corner Region?'
While Xiao Yan was feeling shocked in his heart, Su Qian, Han Feng, and the others who had withdrew some distance had also discovered the existence of the two mysterious gray figures. They were startled. It was awhile later before Su Qian appeared to have suddenly recalled something. A wild joy swiftly surged up into his eyes as he softly muttered, "These old fellows, who will not die… they are finally willing to intervene."
"First Elder, they are?" A couple of Inner Academy's Elders behind Su Qian asked with some surprise. Although they did not sense any strength from the bodies of the two mysterious figures, they could vaguely sense a kind of unusual pressure covering their hearts and souls.
"The Guardians of the Jia Nan Academy…" Su Qian slowly said, "However, if the Jia Nan Academy is not faced with a situation of life and death, they would never intervene. Fortunately, this time around… otherwise, this Inner Academy…" Some fear involuntarily surfaced on Su Qian's face when he spoke until the end.
"Guardians?" The eyes of the many Inner Academy Elders flickered as they looked at the two gray figures while they muttered softly to themselves.
The two mysterious gray figures did not respond even a little to the many gazes that shot from all directions. They withdrew their gazes from Xiao Yan. After which, they focused on the enormous fireball in front of them. Shock flashed across the rippleless old-well-like eyes of theirs as they sensed the destructive force contained within. They exchanged looks with one another and two pairs of shriveled hands slowly extended from their sleeves. After which, they slowly formed some strange seals.
Numerous intense spatial ripples suddenly spread from around the bodies of the two gray figures following their actions. With the ripples, the space around them had become extremely distorted. It was as though it was filled with a countless number of folds, giving it a twisted appearance. One's sight was directly distorted by it.
The spatial ripple became increasingly intense. In the end, two strange dark-black glows slowly appeared on the gray figures. Immediately, two shriveled fingers gently floated through the air. After which, everyone was shocked to discover that the space where the enormous fireball had been located at appeared as though it was suddenly torn by a large invisible hand. A huge spatial crack quietly appeared…
A voice that had experienced many vicissitudes of life slowly resounded over the place as a frightening wind suddenly appeared in the sky. Immediately, it gently pushed the enormous fireball, that contained a destructive strength, into a bottomless black spatial crack.
The frightening temperature in the sky immediately fell when the last corner of the enormous fireball entered the spatial crack. Two deep black glows on the fingers of the two gray figures slowly flickered. One could see the enormous spatial crack swiftly begin to close. Within less than a minute, the spatial crack completely recovered. The sky had once again become as smooth as a mirror…
The two gray figures finally sighed in relief after doing this. Even though they had joined hands, such a large-scale manipulation of spatial strength was not as easy as they had imagined. If the fireball's strength had not already caused many tiny cracks to appear in space, it was likely that they would have had difficulty tearing such an enormous line to chase the fireball into.
Even though this was the case, this act of theirs had also caused everyone in the sky to descend into a dull state. Tearing space by simply raising their hands and expelling the destructive fireball into it. Just what kind of unnatural and frightening strength did one need in order to do this? It was likely that even the Old Ground Demon Ghost would have difficulty reaching this level. Just who were these two mysterious gray figures?
Xiao Yan in the distant sky also heaved a great sigh of relief upon seeing the fireball being expelled. If the fireball were to continue swelling as it pleased, it was likely that the Inner Academy would cease to exist. At that time, he would become the culprit who had destroyed the Inner Academy. This was definitely something similar to a nightmare for him. It seemed that he would really have to think thrice if he wanted to use this frightening 'Extermination Fire Lotus'…
Of course, this 'Extermination Fire Lotus' was formed from the merger of four kinds of flame. Currently, half of the 'Life Transforming Flame' he had absorbed back then had been used. If Xiao Yan were unable to find another replacement in the future, he would only be able to use it one more time. Moreover, whether he would succeed again or not was unknown. This 'Extermination Lotus Flame' that he had relied on his strength to successfully unleash had also been filled with luck.
A couple of rushing wind sounds were transmitted over while Xiao Yan felt as though he had put down a heavy burden. Immediately, Su Qian, the Little Fairy Doctor, and the others appeared beside Xiao Yan. After seeing that Xiao Yan was not badly hurt, Su Qian finally waved his hand and softly said, "Follow me. Don't randomly say anything."
Su Qian's body moved after he spoke and he swiftly rushed to the two gray figures in the sky. Xiao Yan hesitated a little behind before he dragged the Little Fairy Doctor along and followed.
"Ke ke, Old Bai, Old Qian, thank you both for intervening today. Otherwise, it is likely that this Inner Academy would cease to exist…" Su Qian cupped his hands to the two gray figures and smiled after appearing in front of them.
"Little fellow Su Qian, you are really not competent in your job as First Elder. If the Inner Academy were to really suffer such a great calamity, it is likely that you would have difficulty compensating for it even if you were to die ten times." A gray-clothed elder looked at Su Qian before he frowned and chastised in a calm yet somewhat stern voice.
"Two old sirs, today's matter is entirely caused by Xiao Yan. If you wish to blame someone, Xiao Yan shall bear the burden. It has nothing to do with First Elder Su Qian." While Su Qian was smiling bitterly, Xiao Yan, who had hurried over, quickly spoke up.
The two gray-clothed elders' calm water-like eyes slowly swept over Xiao Yan. Surprise suddenly flashed across their eyes. They opened their mouths and said, "You… you are the young man who controlled the 'Green Lotus Core Flame' back then?"
Xiao Yan rubbed his head in the face of these two elders who actually remembered him. Finally, he nodded.
"I recall that you seemed to be a mere small Da Dou Shi when we met you back then. You have actually reached this level within a short few years… the Jia Nan Academy has finally produced quite a good student. If that old fellow Mang Tian Chi knew about this, he would likely be proud." A gray-clothed elder clicked his tongue as he spoke.
"Moreover, it seems that there is more than one kind of 'Heavenly Flame' being controlled within your body. Being able to stably merge a couple of 'Heavenly Flames' within one's body. Such a Qi Method would be considered unrivaled. Little fellow, you should be more careful when you head out to train in the future…" The other gray-clothed elder's gaze was also somewhat surprised as he slowly spoke.
"This little fellow has learned from the both of you." Xiao Yan naturally did not dare to slight these two ultimate experts of unknown origin. Therefore, he hurriedly replied.
"Huh?" The two gray-clothed elders nodded slightly. Their roaming gazes suddenly paused on the Little Fairy Doctor beside Xiao Yan, and they involuntarily exclaimed a little.
The Little Fairy Doctor involuntarily became cautious as she sensed the gazes of the two gray-clothed elders. The Dou Qi within her body flowed quietly.
"He he, it is unexpected that I would actually be able to meet an owner of a 'Woeful Poison Body' after so many years. It is really surprising." A gray-clothed elder laughed softly.
"Unfortunately… every owner of the 'Woeful Poison Body' eventually ends up with a similar fate…" The other gray-clothed elder sighed somewhat emotionally.
Su Qian rolled his eyes upon hearing the three of them converse. He said to the two gray-clothed elders, "The both of you should not scare someone after you just appear. If the both of you had appeared earlier, such a matter would not have happened. The both of you should be extremely clear about the strength of the Old Ground Demon Ghost. What can I do to him if he wants to come and find trouble? If Xiao Yan had not stepped forward, no one knows just what the current situation would be.
"All of you are merely sleeping managers. The headmaster has not returned once after many years and the both of you have hid yourselves until one cannot even see your figures. Such a large academy relies entirely on me to manage." Su Qian's resentment was extremely dense when he spoke until the end.
The two gray-clothed elders could not help but become a little embarrassed in the face of Su Qian's reprimand. They had indeed lived peacefully during these years without needing to worry about anything. They immediately emitted a dry cough and said, "Didn't we also experience this back then. It is not so easy to be the First Elder… However, is that old fellow not back yet… This is indeed extremely irresponsible. It has been about a decade since he left, right…"
"If I had known this back then, I would not have taken over your post…" Su Qian groaned somewhat regretfully. After which, he turned his head to Xiao Yan and said, "You can call these two Old Bai and Old Qian. They were also the First Elders of the Jia Nan Academy a long time ago. Now, they have retired and are enjoying life."
Xiao Yan hurriedly greeted the two of them when he heard this.
The two gray-clothed elders waved their hands, indicating that there was no need for all these greetings. After which, they slowly said, "The Old Ground Demon Ghost, huh? We have also not seen each other for many years. It is unexpected that we are actually able to meet today, don't you agree?"
The two people's gazes strangely turned to an empty space not far away when they finished speaking. A strange smile hung on their old faces.
Chapter 892: Hope
Xiao Yan and the others were startled when they saw the way the two gray-clothed elders acted. They immediately faced the direction where the elders were looking, only to see an empty space. There was not a single human figure or any slight energy ripple.
Although their hearts carried some doubt, Xiao Yan and the others were clearly aware that given the strength of these two people, it was natural that they would not act senselessly. If they had said such words, it was likely that the empty space should possess a secret that was difficult to discover.
"Even after so many years, you are still the same hateful old self. This spatial hiding method is useless against the two of us…" Old Qian smiled faintly and gently waved his sleeves. Following the waving of his sleeves, Xiao Yan's group immediately sensed the surrounding space emit an intense fluctuation. A water-wave-like ripple spread out from an elder's fingertip. In the blink of an eye, it completely covered the empty space…
The ripple gently brushed by like a wave of water. Xiao Yan's group was surprised to see that the space had actually split and formed a black line in a strange manner. A miserable human figure was spat out from within it.
Xiao Yan's expression immediately changed when he saw the human figure that had been spat out from the spatial crack line. Who else could this fellow be other than the Old Ground Demon Ghost who had been struck by the 'Extermination Fire Lotus' a moment ago? He was actually able to survive the fire lotus?
"This old ghost actually survived?" Su Qian's face was shocked as he spoke with disbelief.
At this moment, the Old Ground Demon Ghost was indeed still alive. However, the clothes on his body had been completely turned into powder. His body was also covered with extremely ugly and disgusting sear wounds, causing his entire body to not have any good flesh. Bright-red fresh blood had solidified all over his body, causing his entire being to look as though he had been skinned and rolled in a pot of hot oil. His appearance was extremely terrifying. His original skull-like face was even more frightening. One could almost fail to differentiate his eyes from his nose. Clearly, the Old Ground Demon Ghost might have survived Xiao Yan's 'Elimination Fire Lotus' with some tactic but… the price was too great.
The Old Ground Demon Ghost that had just came out glared at Xiao Yan with an extremely vicious gaze. When his eyes swept over the two gray-clothed elders, however, his naked body immediately trembled. A fear that was difficult to hide appeared in his sinister tone, "Bai Lie, Qian Mu? It is unexpected that you two old fellows are still alive…"
Old Bai and Old Qian used a pitiful gaze to look at the Old Ground Demon Ghost, who had been turned into a manner that was neither human nor ghost. They smiled faintly and said, "Even an old ghost like you is still alive, how can we die?"
The face of the Old Ground Demon Ghost twitched slightly as his heart became darker and more solemn. The appearance of these two old fellows today had caused his plans to completely fall through. With his strength, he would be extremely strained just dealing with one of the two of them, much less the both of them. Moreover, there was still Su Qian and the others looking maliciously from the side. It seemed that the situation today was really quite bad…
"Old Bai, Old Qian, you cannot let this old fellow off. These years, quite a number of students from our Jia Nan Academy has been harmed by the Demon Flame Valley. If you were to let him off today, he will definitely become a great scourge in the future!" A cold glint flashed in Su Qian's eyes. His tone was also filled with killing intent.
Old Qian's and Old Bai's eyes narrowed when they heard this. There was little emotion on their old faces. All they did was nod indifferently. They clearly understood just what kind of threat an enemy who had reached a seven star Dou Zong was to the Jia Nan Academy. One must eliminate the threat at its root. This was naturally something that these two extremely old and experienced fellows clearly understood.
At their level, they would need to frequently undertake retreats in order to breakthrough to the Dou Zun class. At times, they would undertake a retreat for an extremely long time in one go. During such a period of time, they would have difficulty sensing anything happening to the Jia Nan Academy. If the energy of the 'Elimination Fire Lotus' had not been overly frightening this time around, it was likely to have been extremely difficult to wake them up from their state of retreat. However, despite having such good luck this time around, it was difficult to predict what would happen the next time…
The eyes of the Old Ground Demon Ghost immediately shrank a little after having sensed the vague killing intent that lingered around the bodies of Old Qian and Old Bai. From the moment they met, the former knew that the current strength of these two old fellows was definitely stronger than him. Moreover, he was currently quite seriously injured, and it was difficult for him to unleash his peak strength. If these two were to attack him, it was likely that he would really lose his life in this place today.
This thought lingered in a lightning-like manner in the Old Ground Demon Ghost's heart. An instant later, his eyes immediately turned cold. Before waiting for Old Qian and Old Bai to attack, he violently smashed a fist against his chest. A mouthful of fresh blood was spat out and scattered before covering his body. After his body was covered by the blood fog, the space around the Old Ground Demon Ghost's body swiftly became distorted.
"He is about to flee! Stop him!" This unexpected change occurred within a split second. By the time everyone recovered, the Old Ground Demon Ghost's body had already been wrapped by the blood fog. Su Qian hurriedly cried out upon discovering the former's intent.
The cluster of blood fog blasted apart with an explosive sound after Su Qian's voice sounded. The space became distorted and the body of the Old Ground Demon Ghost simply disappeared into nowhere.
The expressions of Xiao Yan's group changed slightly upon seeing the disappearance of the Old Ground Demon Ghost. They had managed to force the old fellow into such a manner today after much difficulty. If he were allowed to flee, recuperate, and return again, it would definitely be an extremely great trouble for the Jia Nan Academy and Xiao Yan.
"Old Bai, Old Qian, quickly give chase. Don't allow that old fellow to flee!" Su Qian could only anxiously urge Old Bai and Old Qian in his unsettled state.
"Ke ke, there is no need to panic. This old fellow will not be able to escape." Old Qian slightly smiled. His eyes immediately turned to Old Bai as he said, "Why don't you do it this time around…"
"It is still the same Spatial Blood Escape…" Old Bai nodded his head. His hoarse voice contained ridicule as he slowly said, "It has been so many years, yet you are still at the level of a seven star Dou Zong. Today, I will be the one to resolve some of the grudges of the past…"
Old Bai's body moved gently after his voice sounded. He appeared to have teleported as he quietly appeared a couple of hundred meters away. With a couple of such flashes, he disappeared from the sight of Xiao Yan's group.
Xiao Yan involuntarily wiped off his cold sweat as he looked at the frightening speed of Old Bai. He muttered, "Is this the speed of an elite Dou Zun?" After seeing the shocking tactics of Old Qian and Old Bai earlier with his own eyes, Xiao Yan had naturally treated them as experts from the Dou Zun class.
"Dou Zun? You have really overestimated us, these two old fellows. We merely only know how to use some superficial spatial strength. We still have quite a big gap when compared to a genuine Dou Zun…" That Old Qian involuntarily laughed upon hearing Xiao Yan's mutterings.
Xiao Yan was immediately shocked when he heard this. He said in surprised, "One cannot be called an elite Dou Zun even at this level?"
"Old Bai and I can at the very most be considered to have the strength of a nine star Dou Zong. Although there is only one star difference to the strength of a Dou Zun, it is this gap that caused us to spend decades without successfully breaking through… we might not even have a hope of breaking through in our lifetime." Old Qian sighed softly and slowly explained.
Xiao Yan was silent. Although he had spent unimaginable amount of effort compared to an ordinary person during his training journey, his journey was still considered smooth sailing. This kind of feeling where one was not even able to advance an inch over decades was something that he had never experienced nor did he wish to experience. Perhaps, this route might be one that many people would have to undergo, but he knew that for him, who was practicing 'Flame Mantra', his journey to obtain strength would be different from others… similarly, however, this route would also possess a much greater risk than usual training.
"Given the current condition of the Old Ground Demon Ghost, he will not be able to escape from Old Bai. Moreover, the two of them also had some grudges back then that they can coincidentally settle today. Therefore, all of you need not be worried in the future… additionally, the two of us cannot stay for long. We need to once again undertake a retreat after everything is settled. The matters of the Jia Nan Academy will still be left to you." Old Qian turned his head, looked at Su Qian and spoke faintly.
Su Qian nodded a little. After which, he dispatched some of the Inner Academy's Elders to pacify the many students of the Inner Academy.
Taking advantage of this free time, Xiao Yan's gaze swept all around. His heart involuntarily sank a little. The cunning Han Feng had taken the lead to flee the moment he saw Old Qian and Old Bai appearing.
"That bastard fled really quickly…" Xiao Yan softly cursed. He originally intended to capture this fellow and see if he could obtain some information regarding the 'Hall of Souls' and the place where Yao Lao had been imprisoned.
"Forget it, there will still be opportunities in the future… how are your injuries?" The Little Fairy Doctor by his side comforted him before asking with a frown. Xiao Yan's current aura was extremely volatile. Moreover, his expression was also pale-white. Clearly, the display of the so-called 'Extermination Fire Lotus' earlier had resulted in a backlash.
"I'm still alright and will be able to completely recover after recuperating for awhile. On the other hand you… earlier, you had to unleash the 'Woeful Poison Body'…" Xiao Yan waved his hand, wiped off the remaining blood on the corner of his mouth, and sighed.
Little Fairy Doctor gently parted the snow-white hair in front of her forehead and smiled slightly. She did not say anything.
"Ugh, you can rest assured that after we find the last ingredient, you will be able to be free of it…" Xiao Yan could only helplessly speak upon seeing her non-committal manner.
The Little Fairy Doctor nodded slightly. She immediately spoke in a gentle voice, "The strength of these two elders is extremely powerful. I wonder if they are able to resolve the 'Demon Poison Spot' in your body…"
Xiao Yan's heart immediately pounded when he heard this. His original purpose for coming to the Jia Nan Academy was to inquire about the mysterious headmaster and some of the extremely strong people hidden within the Jia Nan Academy. Now that he did not find the headmaster, these two guardians of the academy had become his greatest hope. Moreover, from the various techniques that these two had displayed earlier, they might … really be able to undo the 'Demon Poison Spot' within his body…
Chapter 893: Fail
Su Qian seemed to be aware of what Xiao Yan was thinking as he watched his eyes suddenly become fiery hot. He waved his hand toward Xiao Yan and indicated for him to calm down.
"Old Qian, please head down to rest for awhile. Old Bai should be back in awhile." Su Qian smiled. He gave Old Qian, who was suspended in the sky, a suggestion. His gaze swept over the sky. Those experts from the Demon Flame Valley from earlier had also followed Han Feng in fleeing. Hence, the sky appeared empty at this moment. The silence was without the soul-stirring big battle from earlier.
Old Qian did not reject Su Qian when he heard this. He nodded slightly before his footsteps gently pressed on the sky and slowly landed on the ground. Su Qian, Xiao Yan, and the rest followed behind.
The students of the Inner Academy where they had landed had already been scattered by the Elders. Xiao Li and the rest who had been waiting by the side, swiftly came forward. Their anxious eyes swept over Xiao Yan before they hurriedly asked, "Are you alright?"
"I'm fine. Second brother, this in Old Qian from the Inner Academy. Fortunately, he intervened earlier. Otherwise, I would have ended up creating a big disaster." Xiao Yan smiled faintly, and explained everything before pointing to Old Qian in front of him.
"Xiao Li greets Old Qian." Xiao Li hurriedly greeted him upon hearing this. The frightening strength that Old Qian and Old Bai had displayed earlier had also been captured by his eyes. Naturally, he did not dare to slight Old Qian.
"He he." Old Qian smiled as he nodded. Xiao Li's strength was naturally not something that he would take note of. However, Xiao Yan was someone whom he valued greatly. Hence, his attitude toward Xiao Li had also become somewhat friendly.
After greeting each other, the group followed Su Qian and entered into a deep area of the Inner Academy. After which, they found a spacious hall where everyone surged in and filled the room until it was packed.
Everyone sat at their own seats as they chatted softly with each other. Su Qian was also reporting to Old Qian about the matters that had happened to the Inner Academy during this period of time. This included a brief summary of the Fallen Heart Flame of the Inner Academy as well as some of the big issues that had occurred during these years.
Old Qian was slightly stunned when he heard that the Fallen Heart Flame of the Inner Academy had ended up landing in Xiao Yan's hands. He immediately said to Xiao Yan, "You are really lucky. Back then, Mang Tian Chi has discovered the Fallen Heart Flame and ended up sealing it. Originally, he had planned to absorb and refine it. However, the Fallen Heart Flame had evolved and formed some intelligence. It ended up stubbornly resisting and continued to hide within the underground magma without being willing to come up. It is unexpected that you ended up benefiting from it…"
Xiao Yan involuntarily let out an embarrassed smile upon hearing this. This Fallen Heart Flame was after all something that belonged to the Inner Academy. Although there were various reason that caused Xiao Yan to end up currently possessing it, his heart still had a kind of guilty feeling when this was mentioned.
"A person with affinity will obtain the treasures that belong to nature. One cannot try to force one's will. Hence, there is no need for you to feel guilty. The Fallen Heart Flame is also a hidden danger that was waiting to erupt if it had continued to be sealed. If it had been left to completely erupt in the future, the Inner Academy would be destroyed as a result. Back then, even I did not really support sealing it. The more one seals it, the harder it will be to deal with it in the future." Old Qian spoke with a faint smile after being aware of what Xiao Yan was thinking in his heart.
"I understand." Xiao Yan hurriedly replied.
Su Qain smiled slightly when he heard this. After which, he diverted the conversation topic.
Around half an hour or so after Xiao Yan's group had entered the hall, a vague figure suddenly appeared slowly in the hall in a strange manner. After which, Old Bai's elderly figure appeared. With a random flip of his hand, an icy-cold corpse was tossed to the ground.
The eyes of everyone in the hall hurriedly looked over. Who else could the corpse covered with solidified crimson blood scars be other than the Old Ground Demon Ghost who had been extremely arrogant half a day ago?
However, at this moment, the founder of the Demon Flame Valley, a renowned expert within the 'Black-Corner Region,' had turned into a corpse. Such an extreme change caused quite a number of people to quietly sigh.
Old Qian looked at the ice-cold corpse with eyes was covered in a viciousness. After which, he glanced at the cold and indifferent face of Old Bai. He sighed and said, "Forget about the grudge back then. You have also undone a knot in your heart. The chances of you successfully charging to the Dou Zun class will also be a little greater."
Old Bai nodded slightly. He silently sat down in a chair on one side. After which, he shut his eyes.
"Today's matter is already over. Old Bai and I need to continue our retreat. We do not know when the next time we will appear. The Inner Academy shall be left to you during this period of time." Old Qian turned his head and spoke to Su Qian after seeing Old Bai return.
Su Qian nodded. However, he slowly stood up and said with a deep voice, "Two Elders, Su Qian hopes that the both of you can lend a hand."
"This little fellow has unluckily been poisoned by a potent poison and he needs an elite Dou Zun in order to completely expel it. However, how is it easy to search for an elite Dou Zun? May I know if Old Qian and Old Bai can join hands and help him eliminate the poison?" Su Qian pointed to Xiao Yan and spoke with a solemn face.
Old Qian and Old Bai quietly raised their heads upon hearing Su Qian's words. Their gazes swept to Xiao Yan and surprise flashed through their eyes, "It actually requires an elite Dou Zun to eliminate it? This is the first time that the two of us have seen such a potent poison after having lived for so many years. Little fellow, come over and let me take a look…"
"Third brother, you are poisoned? Why did you not mention this matter to me?" Beside Xiao Yan, Xiao Li's expression was also stunned as he spoke with shock and fear.
"Relax. It's fine…" Xiao Yan helplessly shook his head. He reassured Xiao Li before hurriedly standing up and swiftly pulling apart his robe to reveal the strange black poison spot on his chest that was sealed by a seal. He bitterly laughed, "This thing is called the 'Demon Poison Spot.' It is done using all the Dou Qi of a Dou Zong and is extremely poisonous. Unless one is a Dou Zun, it will be difficult to expel it…"
"You are actually able to cause an elite Dou Zong to exhaust all of his Dou Qi to poison you… that person really gives you face, little fellow." Old Qian teased. After which, his eyes studied the dark-black spot. A moment later, he frowned slightly and an additional solemness appeared in his eyes. He exchanged glances with Old Bai by the side. After which, the two of them extended their fingers together. An extremely dense Dou Qi surged out. The Dou Qi churned and actually solidified into two half inch long energy crystals.
The faces of everyone seated revealed some shock when they saw that the two of them were actually able to solidify Dou Qi. Legend had it that only an elite Dou Zun could solidify their Dou Qi. It was unexpected that these two people could also do it.
With a gentle flick of their fingers, the Dou Qi crystal escaped Old Qian and Old Bai fingers before gently drifting to the black spot on Xiao Yan's chest. When it was merely an inch or so away, it suddenly burst apart, transforming into a countless number of tiny crystals that drifted and landed on the black spot.
Xiao Yan's entire body trembled intensely following the entrance of these crystal powders. His face also became distorted. The powder was just like hot sparks that caused waves of intense pain to be transmitted from his chest.
The black-colored poison spot suddenly began to wiggle like a living thing after the Dou Qi crystal powder fell onto it. The black spot moved up and down as its luster flickered from deep blackness…
The light endured for around two minutes or so before it suddenly disappeared. An unusual black fog suddenly seeped out of the poison spot before finally curling out and scattering.
"Be careful, its poisonous!"
The Little Fairy Doctor's pretty face changed slightly when she saw the spreading black fog. She beckoned with her hand and gray-colored Dou Qi surged from her hand. It immediately wrapped the black fog within it before carefully withdrawing back into her body. Her body was originally a poison refining cauldron. Therefore just this little amount did not pose much of a threat to her despite the potentness of the Demon Poison Spot.
"What lethal poison…" Old Qian's and Old Bai's faces moved slightly after they slowly withdrew their fingers. The Dou Qi crystal of theirs had actually weakened this Demon Poison Spot just a little. It was indeed worthy of being a strange thing that required all the Dou Qi of a Dou Zong in order to create…
"Two elders, how is it?" Su Qian hurriedly asked when he saw the two of them stop.
Old Qian shook his head slowly and said, "Difficult. The two of us aren't genuine Dou Zuns and we cannot create many of the kind of Dou Qi crystal body earlier. The person who had used this poison is too vicious… It seems that you can only go and search for an elite Dou Zun to lend a hand."
"Even the both of you are helpless?" Hearing this, Xiao Yan's heart involuntarily felt a little disappointed as he asked.
"It is not that we are totally helpless against this thing. You have also seen earlier that we were indeed able to expel some poison. However, the amount that we will expel each time is too little. At this rate, it is likely that we would require a couple of years in order to completely remove the poison. Do you have that amount of time?" Old Bai shut his eyes as he responded.
Xiao Yan once again bitterly laughed. A couple of years? At that time, it was likely that the seal would have broken automatically before the poison was completely removed. If that was the case, it would be better for him to search for an elite Dou Zun or to swallow a third kind of 'Heavenly Flame'…
Su Qian also sighed when he saw Xiao Yan's expression. He patted Xiao Yan's shoulders to comfort him.
Xiao Yan inhaled a deep breath of air, bowed to Old Qian and Old Bai before slowly returning to his seat. Although his heart felt a little disappointed, he was not dismayed over this. Honestly speaking, when he saw that Old Qian and Old Bai could only expel the poison, he had felt that perhaps allowing them to expel the poison was not a good method.
This Demon Poison Spot did indeed bring about a great threat to Xiao Yan. However, at the same time, it also contained all the Dou Qi of an elite Dou Zong. This also caused Xiao Yan to covet it. If he could refine such energy a little at a time like he did back then, it would undoubtedly allow his strength to advance. Hence, it was indeed somewhat wasteful if he allowed it to scatter…
"Looks like this thing… I must still rely on myself. As long as I obtained a third type of 'Heavenly Flame'… I will be able to rely on my own strength to refine the Demon Poison Spot. At that time, my strength would greatly advance!"
Xiao Yan's somewhat disappointed feelings immediately became heated ones as he thought this.
