At this moment, bright light cascaded down.
The transparent cauldron suddenly vibrated. It then flew into the air and started shrinking at an observable speed.
In the blink of an eye, the cauldron had shrunk to the size of a human palm.
Chu Liuyue looked at the mini cauldron in her palm in surprise.
The cauldron was clear, clean, and intricate. Rather than looking like a cauldron, it appeared like a perfume stand used to give tribute gifts!
In mid-air, the black eagle—which was glaring at Chu Liuyue sinisterly—had shock written all over its face when it saw this scene. Chu Liuyue can actually go close to that cauldron! Moreover, that cauldron is actually—
The eagle’s wings expanded with much strength as it charged toward Chu Liuyue.
Chu Liuyue looked up!
At this moment, the tiny transparent cauldron suddenly spun! Its sharp feet quickly cut Chu Liuyue’s palm.
The bright-red blood flowed out, and the cauldron speedily absorbed it. Then, it disappeared!
The next moment, the cauldron turned into bright light and directly entered Chu Liuyue’s body through her wound.
Dazed, Chu Liuyue quickly discovered that there was something extra in her dantian. Upon taking a closer look, she realized that it was indeed the transparent cauldron!
It actually entered my dantian silently! Chu Liuyue knitted her brows. Before I have figured out what exactly this cauldron is, this type of situation is too risky…
But when Chu Liuyue wanted to extract the small cauldron, the water droplet—which had been quiet since the start—suddenly floated.
Black fire emerged from the cauldron. When the fire then tried to suck the water droplet—
The black fire suddenly died out!
At the same time, a devastating shrill sounded in Chu Liuyue’s ear.
The fiend—which was about to reach her—suddenly stopped and flew into the air with a painful shriek.
Chu Liuyue was dazed; then, a bold assumption flashed across her heart.
Chu Liuyue attempted to control the water droplet and move it toward the cauldron.
Every time it inched closer, the black karmic fire in the cauldron would move back one step. At the same time, the originally ferocious apparition in front of Chu Liuyue started to weaken.
Chu Liuyue gathered her thoughts, and the water droplet hurriedly spun in the cauldron.
The black apparition finally broke down, and it completely disappeared.
Chu Liuyue looked at her dantian. More than half of the black karmic fire in the cauldron was gone, leaving only a small speck.
One could still vaguely see a pair of red eyes. The ferocious fiend’s soul was obviously still hiding in that last speck of fire.
As long as the water droplet got close to it, it could easily destroy the fiend’s soul.
Chu Liuyue raised her eyebrows slightly. “It looks like you’re just so-so.”
Indignance flashed across the red eyes, which were filled with murderous intent. It never would’ve thought that not only did the cauldron not kill Chu Liuyue, but it had even…
Chu Liuyue could feel its vengeance and said, “I know you’re indignant, but that’s not important. The cauldron doesn’t look bad, but as for you… There really isn’t a need for you to continue staying here.”
As Chu Liuyue said that, she gathered her thoughts, and the water droplet rapidly flew toward the last speck of fire.
A scream of mercy immediately sounded.
Chu Liuyue paused. “Are you willing to admit defeat now?”
Fear flashed across the pair of eyes, but it kept quiet, obviously agreeing silently.
“It’s a pity I don’t need it.” Although Chu Liuyue didn’t know why the cauldron had entered her dantian, it was obvious that teaching the beast a lesson was now as easy as ABC for her.
Hong Yao excitedly flew around Chu Liuyue, its eyes sparkling. It had heard the beast’s devastating cry clearly.
Chu Liuyue glanced at Hong Yao and smiled with understanding. “You want to take revenge?”
Hong Yao nodded and shook its head. As long as that beast can be taught a lesson, I don’t really care about anything else, even if I can’t personally end the other party’s life. Besides, she is the one taking action!
Hong Yao was very satisfied. Luckily I didn’t beg Mu Qinghe to come help earlier on. Even without him, I can still take revenge!
Chu Liuyue had long expected Hong Yao’s answer, and she tapped its forehead. As expected, it likes to be as lazy as usual.
Tuan Zi chuckled in contempt and waved its tail.
Hong Yao glared at Tuan Zi angrily.
Tuan Zi raised its claws and turned around to flaunt. There were no injuries on Tuan Zi’s body at all, and it looked much more decent compared to the injured Hong Yao.
Hong Yao was furious.
Chu Liuyue decisively ignored the conflict between the two small ones as she gathered her focus and decided to destroy the ferocious fiend completely.
Just as the last speck of black fire was about to be extinguished, a low voice sounded. “You can’t kill me!”
Chu Liuyue’s eyes shrunk. This voice is the ferocious fiend’s; it actually can talk!
“You’re… a legendary fiend?” asked Chu Liuyue in disbelief.
In Mainland Xuan Wu, the levels of fiends were very strict. Rumors had it that a fiend could break past the barrier to transform into human form and speak when their cultivation level surpassed the ninth grade.
A fiend that had surpassed such existences was known as a legendary fiend.
Even in her previous life as the Heavenly Princess, she had never seen such an existence.
She always thought that it was just a rumor, so she didn’t expect a legendary fiend to be sealed under Jiuyou Tower!
A translucent figure suddenly appeared in the fire. Like the engraving on Jiuyou Tower’s main door, it was an eagle.
It stared at Chu Liuyue. Even though its figure looked very illusory, the suppression emanating from its body couldn’t be neglected.
Chu Liuyue carefully sized the eagle up as many thoughts flashed across her mind. However, she still couldn’t recall what kind of legendary fiend it was.
“…I have lived with the Heavenly Square Cauldron for thousands of years, and we depend on each other. If you’re willing to let me go, I’ll be very thankful toward you!”
Chu Liuyue was tempted. Heavenly Square Cauldron? This name sounds familiar, but I can’t remember where I heard it before.
After a while, she decisively put the matter aside and focused on the legendary fiend again. “You… want me to let you go?”
“If I really let you go, how are you going to repay me?”
“As long as it’s within my abilities, I’ll do my best.”
Chu Liuyue paused and didn’t say anything.
“This Heavenly Square Cauldron is very precious. If you let me leave, this item will automatically become yours.”
In a seemingly smiling manner, Chu Liuyue said, “I think it has already willingly acknowledged me as its master. What should I do if I let you go and you come back to kill me? If I haven’t recalled wrongly, you already had this thought when I first entered Jiuyou Tower, right?”
Silence answered Chu Liuyue.
“I’m someone who likes to solve the problem by taking out its roots, so…” said Chu Liuyue as she prepared to destroy it utterly.
“With the legendary three-eyed eagle clan’s reputation on the line, I swear that I will not harm you at all if you let me go back!”
