Chapter 708: Not Mine

Chu Liuyue’s eyes shrunk. That’s the feather of a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant!

The previous faint fragrance abruptly became intense, and now, there suddenly seemed to be an invisible screen that cracked in Chu Liuyue’s mind. Right! This smell—isn’t it the special smell that only comes from a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant?

Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasants had very special physical features. Their bodies contained a portion of a legendary fiend’s bloodline strength. When they used this bloodline strength, they would exude this type of aura and smell to the surroundings.

The greater the bloodline strength, the stronger the smell.

Chu Liuyue’s lips turned dry, and she watched on without blinking, her heart beating wildly.

Following the strong smell spreading around, Chu Liuyue’s boiling heart gradually turned cold.

She remembered that her own Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant didn’t have such a rich bloodline strength. Even when its abilities were at its peak, the smell it had wasn’t half as strong as this.

It seems like… the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant here isn’t mine… Even though she was already long prepared, indescribable loss and bitterness still swarmed up Chu Liuyue’s heart when she learned of the answer.

Lei Laosi’s barrier shook violently, and it couldn’t hold on any longer.

He secretly felt anxious. When the strength of the eighth lightning bolt was absorbed by that fellow, even I couldn’t defend against the terrifying energy. Besides, there’s still the ninth bolt of lightning. Seeing this scenario, I don’t need to guard this place by that time…

A thought popped up in Lei Laosi’s mind, and he looked at Chu Liuyue. I must advise this girl to leave as soon as possible! If something really happens—

He suddenly felt dazed when he discovered that Chu Liuyue didn’t move forward. On the other hand, she stood rooted to the ground, and her expression… was strange. It was like she was heartbroken but also relieved.

“Girl, what are you thinking?! Hurry up and leave!” Lei Laosi didn’t care about much as he yelled loudly.

Her lips unwittingly curled up as if she was mocking herself. That’s right! What am I thinking? Jiang Yucheng and Shangguan Wan were so ruthless toward my people, so why would they let my fiend off? Besides, this is Dahuang Swamp. It’s miles away from Xi Ling. Why would it be here… It’s all my one-sided hallucination.

Chu Liuyue took a deep breath in and looked up calmly.

At this point, the strength of the eighth lightning bolt had gradually dissipated.

She could roughly see the situation within the barrier. On top of the brown branch were two sharp, red claws.

Further up was a pile of tidy rainbow feathers.


That pile of rainbow feathers suddenly moved—it was a pair of brilliant and powerful wings.

Chu Liuyue closed her eyes and felt her entire body relax. Without a doubt, the fiend inside is indeed a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant.

“Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant?!” The moment they saw the fiend inside the barrier, even Mu Qinghe—who had always been calm and composed—couldn’t help but widen his eyes and gasp out loud.

Even though he only saw a pair of claws and wings, he could already confirm that this was a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant.

All the blood in his body seemed to freeze as his entire person was stunned. He couldn’t recover from his trance for a long time.

H-how can it be—

Countless possibilities had popped up in his mind, but he had never guessed this.

He almost instinctively sealed up that person and everything related to her. After all, everyone in the Tianling Dynasty knew that the fiend the Princess had an agreement with was a ninth-grade Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant.

This type of fiend was born as a ninth-grade fiend, and it had feathers with nine different colors. As it grew older and stronger, the colors of its feathers would slowly become more intense and brighter.

Almost at that moment, a very ridiculous thought popped up in his mind. However, he immediately rejected it. How is that possible? That fiend definitely didn’t survive! The one here must be some other Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant! From this commotion and this smell, it’s definitely not the one I’m familiar with.

But even though he thought this way, Mu Qinghe still felt faintly uneasy. He also didn’t know where this uneasiness came from, but he just felt that something was about to happen…

The Qiang Wanzhou trio also saw the same scene. Even though they didn’t know what a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant was, they heard the sentence Mu Qinghe yelled out very clearly.

Mu Hongyu asked with some confusion, “Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant? What kind of fiend is that?”

She always didn’t know much about such things.

Ye Ranran also looked very shocked as she took a deep breath in to calm herself down. Then, she softly said, “Don’t you know? In the past, the Princess’s fiend was a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant. But when the Princess passed away back then, the fiend must’ve died too. This… should be another Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant.”

She didn’t think much about it. This was because even though the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant was very famous, she had only personally seen it twice, and it was all from a distance away.

She only confirmed that it was a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant after hearing what Mu Qinghe said.

Mu Hongyu widened her almond-like eyes. “I see! I was still wondering what kind of fiend is this amazing!”

She had heard some rumors regarding that Princess. In Mu Hongyu’s memory, she was the genius among geniuses—the legend among legends.

The fiend that she had an agreement with must be something formidable as well. Look, a random Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant is also one that is about to break through and become a legendary fiend!

She turned her eyes and silently asked, “Oh yes, since the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant clan is all so formidable, then… Could the one that the Princess had back then become a legendary fiend too?”

Ye Ranran glanced at Mu Qinghe, who was not far away.

Everyone was actually pretty strong, and they were quite near each other. So no matter how softly they spoke, the others could also hear it.

Mu Qinghe definitely knew that they were talking about this… But only the side of his face was facing them, and they couldn’t see his expression clearly.

Ye Ranran hesitantly nodded. “I heard so… You might not know, but the Princess didn’t force the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant to make an agreement with her. It flew over on its own and willingly became the Princess’s fiend… But all of this happened when the Princess was young. In the end… That fiend accompanied the Princess for many years, and it became stronger and stronger. According to rumors, that Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant had intentions of breaking through before the thing happened to the Princess… But nobody expected…”

Nobody expected that the Princess would fall afterward, and even that Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant wasn’t lucky enough to survive.

What a pity.

Mu Hongyu revealed a regretful expression. “That’s really… Liuyue? Why did you come back?”

Just as she was being emotional, she unintentionally looked up and saw Chu Liuyue walking toward her.

Chu Liuyue didn’t have much of an expression on her face, but she was exuding a lonely and devastating aura for some reason.

Didn’t she want to see that fiend break through? Why—

Chu Liuyue lightly shook her head, and her lips even curled up slightly. However, her smiling intent did not reach her eyes. I should’ve thought of it earlier…

Hong long!

The ninth bolt of lightning finally landed!

At the same time, a figure suddenly rushed out from another direction and went straight for that barrier.

Chu Liuyue suddenly turned around. Shangguan Wan!
