Chapter 162 - A Battle Of 3000 Rounds
The moment the system gave off an alert, Luo Tian smiled excitedly and shouted: "I knew it!"
He instantly rushed out.
On his way back to Tang Jiu, Luo Tian immediately made a thought and learned the Healing Art skill given by the system reward. His skill list was then populated with another skill.
Martial Skill: Healing Art
Consumption: 1000 profound energy
Cool down time: 3 seconds
Skill Description: This skill is a supportive healing skill that can be activated on yourself or onto others. Each activation can cure a single wound and can be infinitely overlaid with each other.
To summarize this skill in one sentence...
As long as one isn't dead, they can still be saved!
Another skill that went against the heavens!
As long as Luo Tian had enough profound energy, he wouldn't ever have to worry about dying in the future! Of course that didn't include the chance of him being instakilled!
Luo Tian had rushed forth and back like crazy.
Bai Mei and Qin Yue'er had no clue what was going because they couldn't figure out what Luo Tian was trying to do.
Qin Yue'er then said: "Luo Tian, don't be like this. Tang Jiu had chosen this path himself… even if you torture yourself, it'll be of no use. The dead cannot be revived…"
She thought Luo Tian was mentally torturing himself.
Bai Mei also tried comforting him: "Kid, you've already tried your best. You can see that he left with a smile. I believe he didn't regret the path he chose, and you haven't let him down. He's at his last breath so you should stop torturing yourself over it."
Bai Mei also thought Luo Tian was trying to hurt himself.
If he wasn't trying to hurt himself, why would he crazily rush forth and back? What else was he trying to do?
Luo Tian held up Tang Jiu and sent out his senses. His heart felt like a rock had been lifted from it as he said: "It's still good, I still have some time!"
Bai Me was startled by those words and looked at Luo Tian even more confused. He then said: "His internal organ functions have pretty much stopped working and even if Gods descended cannot help him. It's really too late so just let him pass on peacefully."
Qin Yue'er just stared at Luo Tian with a confused look but she didn't say anything.
Luo Tian was acting in a way that no one could figure out.
Luo Tian grinned and said: "Today I will impersonate the ancestor of the Gods. Old man, it should work if the ancestor of the Gods came right?"
As his voice faded...
Luo Tian didn't bother elaborating more as his brows scrunched up. A crystal like glow surrounded his hand before he reached towards Tang Jiu.
The light seem to spill down onto Tang Jiu's body before quickly disappearing.
There was no reaction from Tang Jiu.
Bai Mei and Qin Yue'er looked at Luo Tian and couldn't figure out what he was doing.
Luo Tian looked like he was giving the dead their final rites.
Was he performing some sort of ceremony to help Tang Jiu's soul find peace?
After three seconds went by, Luo Tian activated his skill again and another 1000 profound energy was consumed. The crystal light was similar to a holy light as it scattered down. Tang Jiu's body was enclosed by that light before the light disappeared half a second later.
Luo Tian continued...
The light disappeared again...
This was continuously repeated.
After his big battle with Yin Shang and the ten thousand combo he did, Luo Tian's profound energy was pretty much exhausted.
At this time...
Luo Tian swallowed several medicinal pills and some normal demon cores together. Some of his profound energy came back so he started activating his Healing Art again. His actions right now made him look just like a madman.
Qin Yue'er started crying at Luo Tian's actions as she grabbed onto his arm. "Stop torturing yourself. He's already dead so can you stop acting like this? Wuuu~..."
Luo Tian's crazy like actions made her heart ache.
Seeing how tired Luo Tian looked, she knew he was in anguish. When Luo Tian was in pain, Qin Yue'er also felt pain in her heart.
Bai Mei faintly shouted: "Kid, it's no use! I've already said that no one can save him. Yin Shang's attack contains the devouring power of death, and his bodily functions have been thoroughly destroyed by it. What you're doing now is just harming yourself, so why bother continuing?"
Luo Tian didn't stop.
He didn't want to explain, and didn't have time or energy to explain.
Luo Tian was currently experiencing the uncomfortable effects of having one's profound energy depleted. It felt like someone had opened up his skull and started viciously punching his brains. The pain made him feel like he was drowning in despair but he still desperately continued casting his Healing Art.
He clenched his teeth and struggled on.
Whenever his profound energy rose back to 1000, he immediately activated the skill again.
Luo Tian shouted internally: "I have to save him! Ninth brother, you have to hold on!"
"You have to hold on!"
"You cannot die like this!"
Right off the bat, Tang Jiu disregarded his life and used everything he had in order to help Luo Tian stall for more time. And he even tried standing back up for another fight on his last breath. That moment onwards, Luo Tian had made up his mind that he was definitely going to become brothers with Tang Jiu this lifetime!
Someone used their life to help you? Now that was true brotherhood!
Luo Tian was using his life on the line to save Tang Jiu because he was treating him like a real brother.
This was a brotherhood through life and death!
He then struggled to cast another Healing Art!
He was acting like a crazy demon!
Qin Yue'er started crying out loud as she grabbed onto Luo Tian's powerless hand. "Stop it, I'm begging you! Stop it! If you keep on doing this, you will tire yourself to death. You will really die from it!"
Bai Mei angrily shouted: "Kid, can you wake up?! He's already dead and won't come back! Why are you…"
"Cough~ cough~ cough~..."
Bai Mei hadn't managed to finish his sentence when a fit of coughing was heard from Tang Jiu's mouth.
Bai Mei's gaze turned towards Tang Jiu lying on the ground and incomparable shock showed on his face.
It was the same with Qin Yue'er as she stared at Tang Jiu with eyes wide and mouth agape. The emotions she was feeling couldn't be described with words.
At this moment...
Tang Jiu's originally pale and ashen face became a few shades rosier. His eyes gradually opened and when he saw stunned expressions on Bai Mei and Qin Yue'er, he asked in a shaky voice: "I… I… haven't I died already? What are you, you all doing here?"
A few minutes ago, he was barely breathing like he was about to die. Now he was speaking and his face was becoming rosier.
Bai Mei was dumbfounded. His throat kept swallowing as he turned to Luo Tian and said: "You brat, you're simply… simply… simply not human!"
A smile broke out on Qin Yue'er as she said: "You're still alive, and it was him that saved you again."
"Little handsome brother, you've saved my senior brother again."
"As his junior sister, I should really repay you very well. Just tell this sister what you want. As long as you say it, this sister will do her best no matter what the request is."
Her voice contained endless seduction.
Add that with her temptress like voice, it could cause anyone's thoughts to start roaming.
This hot demoness Qin Yue'er could really steal one's life away!
Luo Tian looked at Tang Jiu and faintly smiled. His voice was very weak as he said: "Ninth brother, you've finally woken up… cough~, cough~…"
His voice was very weak and faint.
It was similar to a sick person who was just about to die.
In order to save Tang Jiu, Luo Tian almost felt like he ran through the gates of hell and back. His profound energy was completely exhausted, his body stiff, and he truly felt he was going to die any second. But the main point was that he didn't give up!
Just like Tang Jiu who never gave up!
Luo Tian looked at Qin Yue'er and said with a smile: "We'll battle it out on the bed for 3000 rounds!"
After saying that, he collapsed into Qin Yue'er's arms and his head accurately landed against her chest. The elasticity and softness of those twin peaks were out of this world!
So freaking awesome!
