"You, what did you just put into my mouth?" Lu Chen hurriedly shoved his finger down his throat and tried to dig out whatever he had been forced to swallow. However, his body has already ingested it so there was no way for him to spit it out.
Qianbei Ye glanced at Lu Chen and turned his attention towards Xia Linyu, " I've just fed him a Soul Gnawing Fruit. I had found this Soul Gnawing Fruit by accident but it's nothing good. It can make anyone who has consumed the fruit to be unable to die for three days. This also means that no matter what you do, he cannot die. Even if you were to cut off his head, he would still be alive! However, after three days, this Soul Gnawing Fruit will gradually consume his soul until he no longer exists in this world."
The price of the Soul Gnawing Fruit was rather steep, even if it grants one immortality for three days, it would turn one's soul to ashes in the end. No one would ever use it to lengthen their own lifespan!
Xia Linyu's eyes sparkled and his delicate features lit up with a smile, "Thank you, brother-in-law."
The words 'brother-in-law' make Qianbei Ye's heart melt. His peerlessly-beautiful features blossomed with a mesmerizing and seductive smile. His red eyes no longer held his initially gloomy air.
"My little brother-in-law has been bullied so as his brother-in-law, I should help him vent his anger. Wouldn't you agree, wife?"
Gu Ruoyun rolled her eyes at him and retorted, feeling helpless, "Who are you calling 'wife'?"
"You had mentioned it yourself that I'm your man." Qianbei Ye stared at Gu Ruoyun with distress and replied in a pitiful manner, "Doesn't this mean that you've agreed to marry me? Wife, since you've said these sort of things, you can't go back on your word."
"By the way, do you have any more of that fruit?" Gu Ruoyun raised an eyebrow, "Feed one to Xia Ming and Xia Chuxue while you're at it."
Hearing this, Xia Chuxue and her father instantly turned pale. Xia Ming, who was engulfed in the purple flames, roared angrily.
"Xia Ruoyun, you're worse than an animal! You want to murder your own father, you will definitely be hacked into a thousand pieces!"
Gu Ruoyun smiled then turned towards Xiao Zixie who had remained silent, "Zixie, your flames aren't strong enough. Why is he still able to speak?"
Qianbei Ye's appearance had already made Xiao Zixie very upset. Now, upon hearing Gu Ruoyun's words, he immediately charged furiously towards Xia Ming and put his flames away with a gloomy look on his little face.
"Hacked into a thousand pieces? You seem to enjoy this phrase a lot. Since that's the case, I'll let you experience the feeling of your body being hacked to pieces! Don't worry, I don't have any Soul Gnawing Fruit but my every cut will be perfectly executed. I won't let you die so easily!"
As Xiao Zixie spoke, a wave of daggers appeared in his hands. His little face remained stoic as he mercilessly landed his blow, severing Xia Ming's skin along with his flesh. Fresh red blood began to pour over his entire arm.
Xia Ming let out a heart-wrenching shriek as tears streamed down his cheeks. In this life, he has endured countless wounds yet none had been quite as painful as this.
"This is only the first cut and you already find it unbearable? We still have nine hundred and ninety-nine cuts to go. I won't let you die before the last cut falls!" Xiao Zixie sneered and vented all his frustrations out on Xia Ming.
At this moment, Xia Ming suddenly began to envy Qiu Na who had been able to die so easily without needing to endure such torture.
