After thinking about it, it still seemed a little bit inappropriate in his opinion. Hence, he turned his head to the side and ignored the female cultivators near him.
“Chen Chen!” Xia Xishuang exclaimed.
She was obviously trying to suppress her excitement. Chen Shuang turned around and looked at her with a warm and bright smile.
At this moment, Chen Chen could feel how suave, refined and dashing he looked even though he wasn’t looking at the mirror.
However, Xia Xishuang seemed to have not noticed it as she moved quickly and arrived right in front of Chen Chen. She wanted to say something but couldn’t bring herself to.
That was the largest extent of affection that she could show in public.
Looking at the woman in front of him, the smile on Chen Chen’s face gradually became natural, and he reached out to gently tidy her messy hair.
“Xishuang, I have stepped into the Essence Soul realm. From now on, I’ll stay on this battlefield in the Western Border.”
Xia Xishuang was extremely excited to hear that, and then subconsciously looked at the master.
After all, her master said that the two of them could be together only after they had both reached the Essence Soul realm.
Sensing the gaze in Xia Xishuang’s eyes, Chen Chen lowered his head and looked at Demon Emperor Pingshan with a profound gaze.
Seeing this, the Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan’s face twitched a little, and she soon turned around, pretending not to have seen it.
Xia Xishuang was excited, but she didn’t know how to express it and merely looked at Chen Chen, her face flushed.
Chen Chen murmured softly, hugged Xia Xishuang, and then spun her around a few times before putting her down.
The group of cultivators in the distance were extremely agitated and many female cultivators wished they could cry out loud.
It was only human to have feelings and desires.
All young cultivators would yearn to have a wonderful relationship.
In the midst of this cruel war, love seemed to be even more precious. Seeing that a pair of lovers had finally gotten the chance to be together, they were touched and filled with envy.
Fifteen minutes later, the cultivators dispersed.
Chen Chen and Xia Xishuang shared a room and whispered sweet nothings to each other for a long time.
Only then did Chen Chen take out a storage ring and put it on Xia Xishuang’s hand.
“These are the treasures I got in the Boundless Sea. With them, you’ll be able to reach the Essence Soul realm soon too.”
Xia Xishuang did not refute and instead, grabbed the storage ring before saying softly, “Chen Chen, I shouldn’t be turning down the things that you give me but… I feel like you’re losing out greatly by becoming my Dao partner…”
Chen Shuang laid down on Xia Xishuang’s bed and said with a smile, “Don’t say that, there’s no such thing as losing out. Actually, giving you gifts makes me really happy.”
Xia Xishuang gently laid down in Chen Chen’s embrace and said softly, “Unfortunately…we are now facing a life-and-death situation. Otherwise, I would really want to be in a recluse with you for a while.”
Holding Xia Xishuang in his arms, Chen Chen said, “Elites like you and me, will have to ascend to immortality sooner or later. When we become immortals one day, we will get to live forever.”
“But Chen Chen, what if something goes wrong? If the human race is wiped out by the demon race, how can you and I become immortals? There have been too many accidents on this battlefield and one day, I might…”
Before Xia Xishuang could go on, Chen Shuang kissed her and interrupted her.
“I won’t let anything happen to you.”
Chen Chen hugged Xia Xishuang tightly as he said that.
“Even if I slaughter millions and step onto the path of diabolism, it won’t matter.”
Chen Chen stayed in the Demon Suppressing Town for an entire day. Yuan Qingtian and the three giant ships had already arrived. The 5,000 elixirs had also been distributed.
Chen Chen finally felt that a boulder had been lifted off her chest.
Late at night, it was dark and windy. There were no stars in the pitch-black sky, and it seemed exceptionally quiet.
Chen Chen sat cross-legged in his own tent to cultivate. Xia Xishuang’s tent was right beside his.
Outside the Demon Suppressing Town, a figure in a red robe slowly descended, and all sorts of protective arrays in front of him malfunctioned. He stepped into the heavily protected Demon Suppressing Town in a few steps.
Ignoring the rows of tents, the figure in the red robe walked directly toward the innermost tent.
Along the way, he even encountered a few cultivators who were keeping their guards up.
However, it was as if he didn’t belong to this world at all because the cultivators didn’t notice his existence at all.
He walked slowly but firmly to the tent where Chen Chen was and entered.
At this moment, Chen Chen was still cultivating, and he didn’t notice that outsiders had entered.
Sensing the fluctuation of spiritual energy in the world, the figure in the red robe could not help but sigh softly.
“The innate spirit body is indeed extraordinary.”
Unfortunately, in his eyes, even those who had innate spirit bodies would mean nothing to him as long as they were below the Void Refinement realm.
However, just as he was about to make a move, a clear and pleasant voice rang out next to him.
“What are you doing?”
As soon as he said that, a girl who was only slightly taller than one meter, stood in front of him to block him.
Her skin was as fair as snow, her eyes were bright and clear. She was extremely adorable, but there was a small morning glory on her head that made her look rather peculiar.
“You can see me?”
The man in the red robe asked in bewilderment.
“I can sense that you want to kill my master!”
As the little girl spoke, the morning glory on her head suddenly became longer, and it tried to scratch Chen Chen who was cultivating. For some reason, there seemed to be a barrier between her and her master as she couldn’t touch Chen Chen no matter how hard she tried to.
“Who…who are you!?!” The girl panicked and yelled loudly.
However, her voice did not attract anyone’s attention.
“Plant-based demon… Hah, since you’re a demon, why do you have to protect the humans?”
The figure in the red robe stretched his hand out and scratched the little girl’s face affectionately.
The little girl said viciously, “Demon or human, I don’t care! If it weren’t for my master, I wouldn’t have had the chance to transform. I might have been trampled to death! If you want to kill my master, kill me first!”
At the same time, many branches started growing from her body to shield Chen Chen.
Immediately afterwards, Little Yellow, the Ochre Yellow Spirit, also climbed out of the Little Carefree Immortal Palace with great excitement, but after seeing that scene, she scrambled behind the little morning glory that had already transformed. It seemed to be secretly observing the figure in the red robe.
“Hah, how interesting, a human elite actually has two plant demons with him.”
The red-robed figure laughed lightly and waved his hand, after which Little Yellow had already flown into his palm.
“Little thing, your master didn’t eat you? If he eats you, he’d be able to live for 10,000 more years.”
Little Yellow flailed its limbs continuously, but all it could do was whimper.
The red-robed figure looked at Little Yellow and didn’t say anything more, while Little Morning Glory seemed to be extremely nervous.
At this moment, the figure in the red robe suddenly put down Little Yellow and looked at Chen Chen, his eyes full of astonishment and dismay.
“Adversity-Overcoming Seal! This human actually has the Adversity-Overcoming Seal!”
The red-robed figure bellowed and subconsciously looked at Chen Chen’s gloved hand.
As a Void Refinement realm expert, he could naturally sense the presence of the Adversity-Overcoming Seal!
“I didn’t expect us to be fellow cultivators of the same path.”
The figure in the red robe muttered and then reached a fair hand out from the robe.
There was also an Adversity-Overcoming Seal on his palm that was identical to Chen Chen’s!
“Interesting, if I kill him, won’t the heavens give me merit and spare me? Haha, interesting.”
After laughing neurotically twice, the red-robed figure suddenly retracted his hand and said coldly, “Unfortunately, I don’t want anyone’s sympathy, including Heaven!”
After saying that, he vanished into thin air, leaving only two leaves that floated downwards slowly and landed on the heads of Little Morning Glory and Little Yellow respectively.
“Little ones, since you can see me, it means that you are destined to meet me. These leaves are for you, I hope that your master will treat you well.”
The ethereal voice spread into their ears and immediately afterwards, the world seemed to have spun.
The next moment, Chen Chen opened his eyes and looked at the two little ones in front of him.
“How did you guys get out? Hey, little morning glory, you’ve turned into humanoid form?”
Although it was Chen Chen’s first time seeing the girl, the morning glory on her head was way too recognizable, and he could tell that it was formed from little morning glory.
The little morning glory was feeling rather aggrieved after experiencing that encounter. Seeing that Chen Chen had finally reacted, she pouted and could not help but leap into Chen Chen’s arms. She then began sobbing incessantly.
