Chapter 1515: Her Tribulation!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
At this point, Chu Liuyue felt the cold attacking her bones. This coldness was too strong, causing her to ignore her bodily pain at one moment.
The ice-cold fountain water covered her from all directions, swallowing her whole. She could clearly feel that every inch of her skin was covered by that fountain water.
Vaguely, there seemed to be many sharp and tiny needles stabbing at her body crazily. The piercing pain caused her to widen her eyes.
What entered her eyes was a patch of clear blue.
Am I… in the fountain? Thinking of this, Chu Liuyue instinctively raised her hand. A shaky water ripple flowed across her body.
She looked up. The fountain water was clear, so she could very clearly see the scene in the skies outside even though she was inside.
The dark clouds gathered together, and the lightning bolts flashed.
But… I’m clearly in the fountain water, so why do I not feel any sense of discomfort?
At this point, her entire person had sunken into the water, but she didn’t feel any different from being outside. Only when the water current flowed past her body was she reminded that she was in the fountain.
But very quickly, Chu Liuyue understood why. That was because the water in the fountain wasn’t true fountain water! It was actually liquid formed from extremely pure force!
Chu Liuyue was rather shocked. I’ve been to Million Wine Mountain quite a few times before and have come into close contact with it. However, I never discovered such a secret hidden here!
From outside, she couldn’t tell that there was anything wrong, and the thing that flowed did seem like true water. However, it was only when she was here that she discovered such a mystery within the fountain!
Chu Liuyue looked down and was suddenly dazed.
The fountain was very shallow. From here, she could actually see the bottom.
The surrounding mountain rocks accumulated, and its structure was weird. Upon closer look, there seemed to be traces that were left behind by something sharp.
Those should be… because of those lightning bolts? When this thought just surfaced in Chu Liuyue’s mind, a spark of silver lightning flashed across her eyes.
That lightning bolt was very short and small, only palm-sized. From the corner of Chu Liuyue’s eyes, it seemed like a silver fish that quickly swam across.
That lightning bolt quickly disappeared above a stone wall and left behind a faint mark.
Chu Liuyue’s brows moved slightly as she reached out and gently touched the uneven stone wall. There are so many traces. How much… lightning strength did it endure?
Very quickly, the second one and the third one appeared.
These lightning bolts seemed much restrained in the fountain water and weren’t so strong in their attacks. And for some reason, they seemed to have eyes as they would instantly avoid Chu Liuyue when they passed by her.
Originally, Chu Liuyue didn’t realize it. She only detected something was amiss when the lightning bolt suddenly changed its course when she unintentionally stretched out her hand.
Previously, Tuan Zi absorbed all those lightning bolts and completed its bloodline power awakening here?
Chu Liuyue surveyed her surroundings and realized that the number of lightning bolts here indeed seemed much fewer than before.
But… the bottommost rock seemed rather intact.
Chu Liuyue focused on it and felt that there was something wrong. Logically speaking, the lightning bolts swim around here, and there is no reason for them to intentionally avoid the bottommost rock, right… Why is that one different?
However, this thought just flashed across her mind before she quickly forgot about it. This was because she discovered that her wounds were healing rapidly!
Immersed in this warm and forgiving force, her originally disheveled body—which was covered in wounds—took a turn for the better. Those wounds were recovering rapidly at a shocking speed.
In no time, Chu Liuyue saw the tiny wounds on her arms forming scabs and turning light pink. There was also a portion of force that had already entered her body and slowly rejuvenated her limbs.
Chu Liuyue’s aura recovered by quite a bit.
A faint ripple came from her dantian.
Chu Liuyue’s heart skipped a beat. It’s the black pyramid!
At this point, her surrounding water suddenly shook intensely!
She felt something and looked up. Many lightning bolts were flying down toward her from the skies!
“Why is she suddenly breaking through to reach the God Realm?!” Upon seeing this scene, Elder Bo Yan couldn’t help but holler softly.
Not to mention that it was as hard as ascending the skies to break through to become a true god from an intermediate stage-nine warrior… Even if Shangguan Yue really had this ability, it would be too risky for her with her current condition!
She had just received three moves from Miao Yao, her force had almost dissipated completely, and she was covered in injuries. In the blink of an eye, she had to meet this sudden tribulation…
If it were him, he wouldn’t be able to take it!
He couldn’t help but look at Elder Wan Zheng. “Wan Zheng, she’s your disciple! Why didn’t you know about this earlier at all?!”
Elder Wan Zheng’s expression was difficult.
He was also very worried. After all, that was the disciple he doted on the most!
He hadn’t walked out of the shock of his male disciple being a girl, and those few incidents happened in the blink of an eye. Who could he find reason with?
“How am I supposed to know such a thing in advance?!” yelled Elder Wan Zheng as he clenched his teeth. “Normally, she only cultivates as a heavenly doctor with me. Who knew she—”
“Enough! Stop arguing!” Elder Hua Feng almost spurted out vulgarities. “What time is it now!? It’s imperative to think of how to save that girl’s life first!”
Once he said this, the crowd all fell silent.
Of course, none of them hoped that something would happen to her. Even if they had basically confirmed that the eruption of the fountain was related to her, the incidents were separate.
Ever since this kid stepped into the academy, she had been well-liked and admired by all of them. Even if she had caused some troubles in between, they didn’t really harshly punish her. Of course, it was mainly because those harsh punishments didn’t seem to work on her.
Even if they wanted to punish her now, they had to wait for her to come back in one piece!
“How to save…” Shangguan Jing stood at the side alone. There was no expression on his face as his eyes were glued to the fountain. Previously, Miao Yao activated his bloodline power. Now, Yue’er herself summoned the tribulation… In these two situations, outsiders can’t intervene. It would be as hard as ascending the skies to even take a step closer.
If it was the lightning triggered when she produced Yuan instruments, I might be able to go forward and help her block one or two. However… this is the tribulation triggered when a cultivator breaks through to reach the God Realm! Nobody can help her. Her life and death depend on herself!
Shangguan Jing clenched his fists tightly and slowly exhaled. “Yue’er, you must be… okay…”
The first lightning bolt had already fallen from the skies and struck the fountain precisely!
