Chapter 121: Beheading Spirits
Momo's cries spread far through the quiet Wellington. Not knowing when, the remaining survivors had woken up from their berserk state and climbed to this place.
Woolf, Sharpei, Pupu, and Bai Yi looked at the Spirit Devouring Butterflies flying all around them, and could guess why they were still alive. These butterflies did not devour them even though their souls got polluted. Instead, the butterflies protected them. Otherwise, they would be dead for sure like Yu Han's teammates earlier. One must know, this was the center of Wellington, the center of the ghost city.
Looking at his injuries-ridden teammates, Bai Yi pulled everyone together for a hug as emotions stirred up deeply inside once again.
He was wrong!
He wasn't wrong to seek revenge on Yu Han for his friends, but he was wrong in taking revenge to be everything. He had brought this cruel ending down on everyone. Along the way, just how many delightful things and beautiful sceneries had they neglected? In the future, he must definitely not let his precious friends cry! He definitely mustn't let Momo cry again. This wasn't a life that a father should let his daughter experience.
"What is this place?" Woolf asked.
"This place? Look at the corpse hill below our feet. This is the center of Wellington, the center of the ghost city," Bai Yi gradually said.
Woolf observed the endless corpse hill below him, and couldn't help but shiver in his heart. On the contrary, Momo, Sharpei, and Pupu didn't actually feel anything. A small kid, and two animals didn't have much understanding toward this mountain of corpses. Everyone observed the scenery around them and couldn't help but feel astonished.
In contrast to the corpse hill that covered the surface of the plaza, the top part of the giant tree evoked a sense of beauty.
This giant tree went against the surrounding environment and grew to be so lush. Beautiful pink and blue flowers decorated the branches of the tree. Under the dim illumination of the moonlight, they could see vengeful spirits continuously rushing toward this place from the outside, flying to this giant tree. Once these vengeful spirits came into contact with the tree, it would immediately suck them inside and they would disappear very quickly. In a short while, a pure spiritual body would fly out again, and they could vaguely see their past appearances. These new spiritual bodies would fly around the giant tree like a bunch of gentle mayflies.
However, as these spiritual bodies danced around the tree and came into contact with it continuously, they slowly became more and more transparent. Eventually, they disappeared completely into the air.
They were absorbed!
However, looking at the peaceful expressions of these vengeful spirits at the end, they didn't seem to dislike this situation.
In the surroundings of the giant tree was also the swarm of Spirit Devouring Butterflies that came in here last. The number of Spirit Devouring Butterflies left here were now less than half. The remaining butterflies danced in the quiet moonlight with their spiritual bodies, adding another layer of beauty to this scene.
All of them quietly admired this scenery. Although there was a hill made out of corpses right below their feet, they somehow actually felt a sense of quiet beauty here. Very quickly, all of them slowly got lost in this scenery, and only Bai Yi slowly became wary inside as he looked at the giant tree. This giant tree seemed to have the power to bewitch people's hearts, but it seemed to be more for spiritual bodies. The change in Bai Yi's eyes was probably in part due to the stimulation of this tree.
Suddenly, Bai Yi saw a spiritual body floating toward the tree.
Bai Yi thought he had seen wrongly, but after staring at it for longer he could be sure that his eyes hadn't deceived him. He really wasn't wrong, the spirit that was floating toward the giant tree was Mavis.
Bai Yi staggered clumsily and ran toward her spirit. At this time, the rest of them also followed Bai Yi's line of sight and looked to that direction. They all received a great shock. After a short pause, all of them finally reacted. This place was the ghost city Wellington where a large number of people had died, forming a special environment and energy field. That Anna said before that the souls of the people that died here wouldn't disappear but continue to exist in the form of spirits.
"Momo, quickly stop Mavis! This giant tree has the power to bewitch spiritual bodies. If she goes over she will be consumed," Bai Yi said to Momo immediately after only running a few steps and judging that he couldn't catch up to Mavis.
After Momo heard Bai Yi's words, she immediately rushed toward Mavis, her small body climbing up the hill of corpses. Momo seemingly really had some connection to dead spirits, or perhaps it was the Spirit Devouring Butterflies protecting her, but among all of them, only Momo's soul didn't suffer much damage. She could still move freely now.
"Aunt Mavis, Aunt Mavis! Stop!" Momo ran to Mavis' side and shouted loudly while running around Mavis.
However, the Mavis now just seemed like a spirit that had lost all self-awareness, and slowly floated toward the giant tree. She completely ignored Momo's shouts. Even if Momo blocked in front of her, Mavis didn't dodge but directly passed through Momo's body. When Mavis passed through her, Momo suddenly gave a low groan and started shivering as if she was cold.
"Aunt Mavis, please stop!!" Momo continued to shout loudly.
Hearing Momo's shouts, those Spirit Devouring Butterflies flew over as well. They wanted to pounce on Mavis' spirit. To these butterflies, Mavis' soul was just another spiritual body, it too was food for them to consume. Momo immediately shouted for the butterflies to stop.. In that short moment, Mavis' spirit had drifted forward more.
At this time, the rest of them were also climbing upward with great difficulty, their speed now was pitifully slow. However, even if they were slow, nobody stopped. Mavis' death had already caused them great pain. However, if they could preserve her soul then maybe, just maybe there might be a way to revive her in the future?
Momo desperately tried to stop Mavis, but Mavis was completely unreactive.
Seeing that Mavis was getting closer and closer to the giant tree, Momo drew her short sword with a 'shing!' in her panic. But when she pulled her sword out, she blanked for a moment as one of the Spirit Devouring Butterflies that merged into her body flew out from the back of her hand.
Momo looked at the butterfly fly one round around her, before it returned to the back of her hand again, leaving behind an image of a Spirit Devouring Butterfly. Momo just held her short sword like this, her small face incomparably solemn. It was like she was trying to sense and feel something.
This was that feeling, the feeling that came from her eyes. The drop of blood that the Progenitor dripped on her eyes back then was quietly and unnoticeably changing Momo's body. It wasn't obvious in the past only because she hadn't met a suitable opportunity yet. However, Momo could now clearly feel something flowing inside her body and the air around her.
It's like this, right?
Momo was still a small kid, she didn't know fear. She followed her own intuition and swung her short sword lightly across Mavis. Momo's actions were very slow, very gentle, just like she was doing a sword dance. It was not how she normally wielded a sword in battle. At this instant, a spirit happened to appear in front of Momo's short sword.
Soundlessly, as if her sword hadn't come into contact with anything. The spirit didn't give off a scream, and only slowly turned into little motes of light that disappeared into the air after being sliced into half by Momo's sword.
Momo suddenly got an idea and she immediately put her short sword in front of Mavis. Just what was she doing? Just based on her intuition, she actually pointed her weapon at her Aunt Mavis. The merging of the Spirit Devouring Butterflies with her and the stimulation from the Progenitor's source blood actually changed Momo and gave her the ability to kill spiritual bodies. If not for this random spirit abruptly coming between them, then she would have probably done something irreversible.
However, no matter what, she still had to stop her Aunt Mavis.
Seeing that Mavis was not more than 10 meters away from the tree now, Momo gritted her teeth and chased after her. Momo blocked Mavis' path again. She thought of how her daddy usually looked when he used his Reverse Flower Eyes. Momo also stared at Mavis directly, and her eyes started to change as well, almost as if mist was spreading out from her eyes.
Stop Aunt Mavis, stop!
Momo screamed loudly in her heart. However, if her ability could manifest so easily then it would have been a little too unfair. Mavis still didn't stop as she drifted toward the giant tree.
"Aunt Mavis!" In the end, Momo could only kneel and watch helplessly as Mavis delved into the giant tree.
"AUNT MAVISSS!!!" Momo kneeled on a corpse and started wailing loudly. Momo didn't remember many people inside her little heart. It was just her father (her dearest daddy), Sara (the older sister who likes her), and Mavis (the aunt who always had a straight face but actually really liked her). Sara taught her about being strong at the end, was Aunt Mavis going to leave her as well?
Momo suddenly stood up, and the incomparably sharp short sword hacked toward the giant tree.
At this time, Momo only thought in her heart that if she was unable to wake Mavis up, then the only thing she could do was to destroy this giant tree. However, just when Momo lifted up her sword, she suddenly saw a tearful face staring at her. The Mavis that she couldn't wake up no matter what was looking at her with a smile now. At this time, Mavis was completely different from before, as if all the pollution in her body had been purified. She now appeared incomparably pure and transparent.
"What is Momo thinking of doing?"
"Wu…wu…Aunt Mavis!!" Momo's little face scrunched up and she almost started crying.
"Momo is a strong girl, don't cry ok, let's get down first," Mavis said to Momo. When Mavis was sucked into the tree for the first time, it was as if her soul had been filtered. In that instant, she heard Momo's cries and regained her consciousness. However, remaining close to this tree was very dangerous. The Mavis that had already turned into a spiritual body felt this even more severely.
Although Bai Yi and the rest of them didn't know what happened, they still gave a breath of relief after seeing Mavis return safely.
"Mavis!" Bai Yi saw Mavis' spirit drifting over and wanted to say something, but in the end he couldn't form his words and only this simple word came out of his mouth.
"Stop blaming yourself, let's leave this place first. I can't resist the temptation if I am near this tree," Mavis said.
Chapter 122: Healing Wounds
The few of them chose a nearby house. At this distance, they could avoid the attraction of the giant tree to spiritual bodies and were also not too deep into the vengeful spirits' territory. Although the vengeful spirits had a chaotic mind, they could more or less understand that the giant tree at the center was attracting them like a poppy flower. It made them desire to get close to it but also instinctively fear it.
There were a few more corpses in the house, but they were all long desensitized to this sight and didn't even bother to tidy them up.
"What is it? Why isn't anybody talking?" Nobody spoke for a long time after entering the room, and all of them stared at Mavis with an apologetic look. Mavis' body now wasn't stable. It continuously distorted and warped, and they could only see a vague shape of her. The others who saw this didn't say a word, and it was actually Mavis who spoke first.
"Aunt Mavis!" Momo looked at Mavis with eyes full of longing.
Mavis smiled and wanted to go and stroke her head, but when she was about to touch Momo she suddenly realized that she wasn't suitable to touch Momo anymore. When a ghost and a human came into contact, it didn't just cause damage to the human's soul but the ghost itself would also receive a shock.
"I was wrong, it was me who was too engulfed by hate that brought everyone to this state now," Bai Yi said painfully.
"You don't have to blame yourself so much, this isn't your fault. All of us had the resolution and awareness of all this before coming here. Even so, it isn't too late since you managed to see this point now," Mavis said.
"Revenge isn't everything. In reality, in many stories, even if the revenge was successful, what was left was only emptiness. I don't understand this too much, but the you before wouldn't listen to anybody else's words, so I didn't bother saying anything either. However now, did you wake up? You understand that in this world, there are things more important more revenge, right?" Mavis continued speaking. Bai Yi looked at Mavis in surprise. So Mavis realized this long ago? It was just that she didn't try to persuade him, but waited for Bai Yi himself to come to this realization. Although, this realization came at the price of Mavis' life.
"I'm sorry, I'm really sorry!" Bai Yi's composed image crumbled and tears poured down his face.
Just like watching a big kid cry, Mavis didn't try and continue talking either. Nobody could be perfectly wise and mature from birth. Mavis didn't know about the Bai Yi from before, but she had watched him grow every step of the way since he came to New Zealand.
"Don't say sorry anymore, I actually think that dying in this place isn't too bad of an ending. How do I say this? So far, only dying in Wellington, this ghost city, can people retain their souls. From what Johnny and Anna said, the soul can't maintain its existence in the outside world," Mavis smiled casually.
Although they knew that Mavis was just trying to console them, all of them still unknowingly believed her.
"To speak of it, where's Warner?" Mavis changed the topic.
"Warner disappeared. When we got attacked by the vengeful spirits, everyone fell into the berserk state, so we don't know what happened exactly either. Warner, Yu Han, and his teammates aren't in the area surrounding this giant tree, so we don't know where they are either." After crying his heart out, Bai Yi quickly pulled himself together again and answered Mavis' question.
"So that's what happened, I hope that child is fine." Mavis nodded.
"Let's leave it at that for now, what do you guys plan to do from now on?"
"Treat our wounds, find Heloise and Warner, then leave this place to search for the way to save everyone. If we meet Yu Han again in the future, I will be more level-headed and not act recklessly. I will never, never again let my friends get hurt!" Bai Yi promised seriously.
"You are the team leader, it's good enough as long as you think it through!" Mavis nodded.
"I will find a way to revive Aunt Mavis!" Momo suddenly said loudly as well, her little face full of seriousness.
Mavis blanked for a moment, and revealed a smile at Momo.
"En, then I will wait for that day. To speak of it, my words earlier really weren't to console you guys, but my heartfelt words. Not everyone can experience what it's like to be in a spiritual form. Since I've already become like this, then I can carefully try to understand Wellington's change, the changes in this form of life, and what exactly is the relationship between the body and soul. After that, well I'll just have to wait for Momo to come and revive me," Mavis said to Momo dearly.
"En, I will!" Momo said seriously.
Everyone looked at Momo's little face, and couldn't help but really believe that Momo could find a way to revive a dead person. It wasn't just because Momo could directly see ghosts or her mysterious changes. Instead, the most important factor was just that everyone genuinely believed that Momo could do this.
"All of your injuries seem to be very severe, do you guys know how to treat your wounds?" Mavis asked.
"To heal the injuries of the soul, naturally we have to use the Dead Soul Flower." Bai Yi looked at the little white flower at the corner. Although they couldn't say that the Dead Soul Flower was everywhere, it really wasn't too hard to find one at the center of the ghost city Wellington.
"How to harvest it though?"
This indeed is a problem, if they didn't have the proper way of picking the Dead Soul Flower then it could be even more dangerous than the vengeful spirits. Moreover, all of them suffered from injuries to their soul now, so it was an even more serious issue for them. However, before they spoke again, Momo started walking towards that flower. Bai Yi just wanted to say something but Momo suddenly drew her short sword.
Under all of their shocked gazes, Momo held her sword horizontally and faint mist emitted from the blade. Very clearly, this wasn't the moonlight reflecting off her blade from the outside, but real mist that was emitted from her short sword.
There was definitely no other explanation now, but everyone was very shocked. Even for Bai Yi, he could only get the special energy to passively gather at his eyes when he used the Reverse Flower Eyes, but Momo could actually gather the special energy on her blade with such a simple action. Could Momo's talent be even greater than Bai Yi's?
Momo's short sword stabbed into the roots of the Dead Soul Flower, and black smoke immediately started rising from it. It was even darker than the vengeful spirits. However, the moment this black smoke came into contact with Momo's sword, it immediately rapidly retreated. Afterward, Momo flicked her sword and picked the Dead Soul Flower up from the corpse.
All of them looked at the flower. Was it considered harvested now?
However, it still felt like something was missing.
"Bai Yi, do you remember when Yu Han's team was running toward the center, they dripped something on their bodies?" Mavis suddenly said. Sure enough, a women's thoughts were still more meticulous. The rest of them immediately recalled the Soul Purifying Tree sap that Yu Han's team had dripped on themselves while running. They didn't know what that thing was, but it seemed to have the effect of countering spiritual bodies.
"That's right! Yu Han definitely entered Wellington for the sake of the Dead Soul Flower, so their preparations should be more thorough than ours."
Momo didn't wait for Bai Yi to speak and stretched out her right hand, and a bunch of Spirit Devouring Butterflies landed on the back of her hand. Everybody then looked as Momo and the butterflies communicate wordlessly. After the bunch of butterflies flew away, Momo realized that everyone was looking at her dumbly.
"I only asked the butterflies if they knew where Yu Han's team drop their stuff!" Momo immediately said nervously.
"Don't be nervous, you did well!" Bai Yi rubbed Momo's little head.
They were just amazed, amazed at Momo's abilities now. Before entering Wellington, there wasn't anything special about Momo other than her composure that far exceeded a child her age and her strong will. It could be said that at that time, Momo was really at the bottom of the team. However, after entering Wellington, Momo seemed to receive some stimulus and gradually started to change. From the ability to see ghosts at the start, to killing spiritual bodies now, this kind of change was astonishingly fast.
Sure enough, it wasn't that Momo didn't change, but that she just lacked an opportunity. The drop of blood from the Progenitor that fell into her eyes was definitely very important.
However, her ability was actually related to the soul. Could Momo endure a life of seeing ghosts every day?
Bai Yi gently stroked Momo, worrying in his heart. At this time, nobody thought this far yet, they couldn't even imagine what Momo would become in the future.
Very quickly, Momo obtained information from the Spirit Devouring Butterflies and they found the leather briefcase that Yu Han's team had lost. This briefcase wasn't too different from the one that Bai Yi's team had acquired initially at the research facility and was also very sturdy. After spending nearly a day on it, they finally managed to break it open with brute force and obtain the things inside.
The sap of the Soul Purifying Tree, and some important information.
"It seems to be even more than the things we acquired," Woolf said.
"En, that really seems to be the case. His luck had always been good. Perhaps he was saved by somebody and gained some good things after surviving his calamity," Bai Yi said with slight ridicule. Actually, Yu Han's luck had really been very good, it was almost at the level of the protagonist in a novel. If it wasn't for his crooked heart at the start, maybe it would have been a completely different scenario now. However, what Bai Yi didn't know was that his simple ridiculing actually turned out to be the truth.
Very quickly, all of them figured out the way to use the sap of the Soul Purifying Tree. When the soul pollutants at the stem of the first Dead Soul Flower was purified and revealed a slight glow, they knew that they had guessed correctly. This was the true method to pick the Dead Soul Flower. Although Momo had managed to pick the Dead Soul Flower too, that flower probably still had some side effects.
"I'm sorry, I don't know how to concoct this Dead Soul Flower," Mavis said.
"Doesn't matter, we can just eat it directly," Bai Yi said nonchalantly and munched the flower in his mouth.
Mavis was a doctor, and she was very familiar with the human body and modern treatment methods. However, she wasn't very proficient in the extraction and concoction of these evolved plants now. To put it simply, Mavis was a doctor, and the young woman that Yu Han's team met was the 'Medicinal Maker' that was very popular in New Zealand now.
Medicinal Maker - Somebody who was proficient in extracting medicinal properties from plants, and could to a certain extent extract the useful components from every single type of plant and process it.
Chapter 123: Failed Invitation
While Bai Yi's team was searching for the Dead Soul Flower and slowly healing their soul, Yu Han was also treating his wounds. Of course, just like what Bai Yi had unintentionally said, Yu Han's luck was really good. He actually met a young Medicinal Maker girl that was staying alone in Wellington by chance. In the end, he was saved by her. Moreover, this young Medicinal Maker had heard about Bai Yi and Yu Han before and carried great curiosity toward them.
However, Yu Han's situation wasn't as comfortable as they imagined.
"Aren't you going to say anything?" Adams stared at Yu Han.
"I'm sorry!" Yu Han's expression was very heavy and dejected.
"Only sorry? Just sorry?!" Adams roared immediately after seeing Yu Han's expression and exploded in fury. "Evelynn, Athena, Gaute…The 6 of them all died, died you understand?! Just because you provoked that Bai Yi, the 6 of them died..." Adams became more and more agitated as he spoke, and at the end, he was completely shouting. However, his voice became more and more choked toward the end. Eventually, he couldn't continue speaking.
"Sorry!" Yu Han's voice was very low.
"ARGHHHH…!" Adams gave a long prolonged shout, tears gathering in his eyes. He appeared to be in deep grief.
At this time, Yu Han suddenly heard a soft sound coming from the outside, and he immediately thought of who it was. It was that female Medicinal Maker. Yu Han didn't know how strong she was or the standard of her medicinal skills, but she couldn't be weak since she could stay in this ghost city alone. If something like this hadn't happened to him, Yu Han had the confidence to draw the female Medicinal Maker into his team but it was very troublesome now. After such an argument, Bai Yi and his past would probably all be exposed. As long as the person was still normal, she would never choose to follow him.
"Then what did you want me to do? Did you think I didn't want to resolve it peacefully, that did I not try? But what did Bai Yi do, did he give me a chance? Think of how Evelynn died, that kind of decisiveness and ruthlessness, was it all my fault? Do you think I'm not in pain, weren't they my teammates too? Wasn't Ning Xue my girlfriend? Now that they've become like this, do you think I'm feeling good?!" The more Yu Han said, the more agitated he got. At the end, his face became similarly covered with mucus and tears.
A grown-up man being like this was really a total loss of image, but it had an even greater effect on people.
However, how much of it was real?
"That was what you created! If you did not do those things in the past, why would Bai Yi come and seek revenge?!" Adams also shouted loudly, almost standing up from his agitation.
At that time, Adams recalled the words that Bai Yi had said at the start of the battle - Don't blame me if you die!
That's right, Bai Yi had already warned them all at the start of the battle. This didn't have anything to do with them, but since they stubbornly wanted to get involved, they better be prepared for death. Thinking about Bai Yi's bewitching Reverse Flower Eyes, thinking back to the scene of Evelynn's head flying, Adams couldn't help but shut his eyes. It was really so damn not worth it, and Evelynn had died the most unjustly. Thinking about it now, she purely charged into Bai Yi's blade dumbly.
Two soft knocks came from the door. Nancy was actually quite curious about their conversation, they actually mentioned that Bai Yi in it. Just what had happened? However, due to the education she received since she was young, Nancy didn't eavesdrop on them and only heard a few sentences at the start of the conversation when she hesitated for a moment.
Hearing the knock on the door, the two of them seemingly woke up from their fight and both hurriedly tried to tidy up their sorry looks.
Nancy opened the door and walked in, seemingly not seeing the awkward scene between the two of them. However, their miserable looks now couldn't possibly be covered up completely.
"Time to change the medicine!"
"Thank you, really thank you very much. If not for you, then perhaps we…I'm sorry, I still don't know the name of Miss?" Yu Han was seemingly very embarrassed at letting Nancy see his crying face now.
"Nancy, Nancy right? Thank you, Miss Nancy so much. If not for you, then we might have been dead by now. I'm sorry to let you see such an embarrassing scene. I am Yu Han, this is my girlfriend Ning Xue, and this is…" Yu Han wiped away his tears with his left hand, but the tears seemingly just couldn't stop flowing. The more he wanted to stop, the more it wouldn't stop flowing.
"I'm called Adams!" Adams did not let Yu Han introduce him and spoke up himself.
"Orh." Although her reply was simple, Nancy actually felt great surprise in her heart. Honestly speaking, staying here by herself, her curiosity wasn't actually that great. One must know that those with too much curiosity couldn't live for long in Devil Island now.
However, Nancy's curiosity was aroused by what happened to these people.
Bai Yi and Yu Han, it was actually these two people! Seemingly, the two of them had a very unordinary past. Initially, Nancy was just curious toward the two of them that released the information about the activated cells and helped all the evolved humans. However, she was unexpectedly lucky enough to stumble onto the history between the two of them.
However, Nancy looked at Yu Han unmovingly and noticed in her heart that Yu Han's crying was a bit fake. As a Medicinal Maker staying here alone, an acute sense of observation and a precise analytical ability were very necessary. Otherwise, she couldn't have possibly survived. Yu Han's acting was getting more and more skillful, but he completely didn't expect to meet someone who had impeccable observation skills like Hong Qi Hua.
After Nancy appeared and broke their argument off, Adams also calmed down slightly and wasn't that agitated anymore. When Nancy finally left the room, Yu Han looked at Adams again.
"It's my fault but maybe they aren't dead. Didn't we get saved by somebody too?" Yu Han consoled.
"How possible do you think that is?"
Yu Han was rendered speechless by Adams' impolite words. Just how possible was it? Yu Han of course knew that after falling into the berserk state in that mass of vengeful spirits, it was practically impossible for them to survive. Not everyone was as lucky as him to have somebody that just happened to save him. However, Yu Han felt that Bai Yi didn't die, he definitely didn't.
"You can't say anything now right?" Adams mocked, but after that, he felt that this was utterly meaningless. Then, he sat in the corner lifelessly and looked up at the mottled ceiling.
"I know, the chances of them surviving isn't great. Not everyone would be as lucky as us to get saved by chance. But I know that Bai Yi is definitely still alive. There's no basis for this but I just know. Now, the things between me and him can no longer be judged by right and wrong." Yu Han slowly struggled to climb up.
"I don't care what you choose, but this time I will take the initiative to find him and put a close to everything. Between the two of us, there is no longer any room for compromise, only one of us can live," Yu Han said with a grieved but malevolent expression.
"What about you, what will you do? Are you going to stop and back out like this? Or are you going to stay together with me to find Bai Yi and put a close to everything, regardless of right or wrong?" Yu Han looked at Adams seriously.
"Ha~~!" Adams sighed very deeply and closed his eyes. "Let me think about this." He didn't continue speaking after this. Yu Han didn't pressure him either. He knew that Adams was very rational and smart, it wouldn't be so easy to make Adams continue to follow him.
The 3 of them had stayed in this place quietly recuperating, and Adams still hadn't replied to Yu Han's question. However, Yu Han was even more worried about another problem. Ning Xue still hadn't woken up. However, after receiving treatment from Nancy, they found that their injuries were swiftly recovering in this one week.
This let Yu Han ascertain that putting aside her strength, this Nancy was already very good just based on her Medicinal Maker talent alone.
"Nancy, I have the original form drug outside. Although it doesn't have an absolute effect, it can still let you regain your human form to a certain extent. I really don't know how else to repay you for saving our lives, and this drug could probably be of use to you. Do you want it?" Yu Han asked and tested her. At this time, he didn't directly invite her to the team because he knew that would be very unrealistic. Nancy had already more or less learned about the history between him and Bai Yi.
"Prototy original form drug!"
"I'm indeed very curious, but still, forget about it. Anyways, it can't make me completely regain my human form after all. It's still better to wait for somebody to invent the drug that can let people completely regain their human forms. It hasn't been long since I started studying medicines, but I still know that sometimes similar drugs would clash with each other. If I use the Prototy drug now, perhaps it would affect the effects of the real drug to help us regain our human form completely." Nancy shook her head and declined with a smile.
"Is that so, then I'm really sorry. Other than that, I don't know how else to repay you."
"Nope, it's fine." Nancy shook her head.
"Nancy, don't you want to see the New Zealand outside now?" Yu Han still asked again in the end.
"En, I'm indeed quite curious, but I still don't want to leave now. After all, New Zealand now is too dangerous. Although this place is dangerous too, I'm generally familiar with this place. At least, it wouldn't be a problem to survive here."
"Is that so, if you leave in the future you must remember to come and find me. I must repay this debt of you saving my life."
"Sure, if there's a chance." Nancy tactfully rejected Yu Han's invitation. Of course, she understood that Yu Han was inviting her to his team, but after learning the inside story, how could she agree to follow Yu Han? On the contrary, Nancy was even more curious about Bai Yi now. From the few words leaked from their conversations, she knew that although they saw him as an enemy, they had a very high evaluation of him.
After getting rejected by Nancy, Yu Han still felt quite disappointed in his heart even though his face didn't change much. Sure enough, after knowing about their history, it was too difficult to get Nancy to join him.
