Chapter 711: Little Nine, it’s Me!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Even though times had changed and many things were different, Chu Liuyue could still recognize at first glance that it was the Little Nine that accompanied her for countless days and nights when she saw the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant.
This was an absolute silent agreement, an instinct they only had after understanding each other deeply as they had experienced countless life-and-death scenarios together.
Chu Liuyue clenched her fists tightly until her knuckles turned white. After her heart stopped for a moment, it started beating wildly, and all the blood in her body seemed to be coursing through her veins.
Even she didn’t know how much effort she used to control her urge to rush forward, but her eyes were already filled with sourness as if something suddenly overwhelmed her and wrapped around her.
Little Nine! That’s my Little Nine! I thought that we were already separated by life and death, but I didn’t expect us to be able to meet again at a place like this. Her previous disappointment and regret completely disappeared, leaving behind endless surprise and gratefulness. It was as if a flower suddenly grew and bloomed below the dusty ground as it swayed with the wind.
With just one light move, all her bitterness and sufferings instantly became nothing.
Chu Liuyue didn’t even blink as she was afraid that everything before her was just an illusion.
Suddenly, she focused on something and saw that Little Nine’s eyes… were actually gray! Chu Liuyue was stunned. That’s not right… Little Nine’s eyes are normally black, but its eyes would become a brilliant rainbow when it executes its powers. It’s never gray. The most important point is that in its pair of gray eyes, there are no irises!
With just one glance, they looked like two gray Yuan Stones that didn’t have any energy or liveliness to them.
Even though it was also ‘looking’ at Chu Liuyue, only Chu Liuyue—who was looking at it—could see that its eyes were like a dried-up well. They were lonely, empty, and void of any emotions.
After a moment, it calmly retracted its gaze.
Chu Liuyue’s lips quivered as she seemingly stepped forward uncontrollably.
The Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant suddenly flapped its wings.
The wind howled, and the leaves rustled in the wind!
The violent wind spread in all directions. The nearby crowd was affected, and they all had to move back a few steps.
Chu Liuyue originally wanted to go forward, but the man behind her pulled her back by a distance.
On the other end, Lei Laosi and Shangguan Wan—who were fighting—were also respectively separated.
Lei Laosi didn’t notice this at that moment, and he landed harshly on the ground due to the impact. He couldn’t help but scold, “Damn you! You don’t have any conscience left! I guarded you with much difficulty, but you’re not even making it easy for me!”
But that Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant was unaffected as if it didn’t even hear him. It seemed like it was angered because the people in the surroundings disturbed its breakthrough.
Lei Laosi instantly felt his head ache. I must’ve been crazy to tell it all of this! If it listens to people, Big Brother and I wouldn’t have to watch it here! It previously spent all its time hibernating and not causing trouble. It was decent when it was quiet and peaceful. Now that it’s about to break through, its abilities have strengthened greatly. Let alone me, Big Brother might not even be this fellow’s match!
However, Shangguan Wan’s situation was better than Lei Laosi. In the moment of panic just now, she used her black shield to block herself, and it blocked most of the energy.
Hence, she didn’t fall to the ground and look as badly as Lei Laosi. Instead, she stood still after stumbling backward for a few steps.
She gently breathed out and silently thought, This black shield is much more useful than I thought. Without this, I might’ve collapsed long ago.
Shangguan Wan looked up at that Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant again and slightly knitted her brows. Why must it be a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant…
Previously, she had all sorts of imaginations about this ninth-grade fiend, but she had never expected it to be a Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant.
If it were any other ninth-grade fiend, she wouldn’t have any problems. She only had problems with this Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant—it was the fiend that Shangguan Yue made an agreement with when she was alive!
This made Shangguan Wan quite uncomfortable, but she couldn’t care about much now! It’s the best time to attack since this thing hasn’t completely broken through to become a legendary fiend.
Shangguan Wan crazily burned the force in her body as she went on her toes and flew up again.
She went straight for that Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant. As long as I pluck off the red feather from its head, I can take it and become its owner!
The Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant tilted its head and glanced at Shangguan Wan. Just as it was about to make a move again, its gaze suddenly landed on the black shield in front of Shangguan Wan.
Its actions had a momentary hesitation.
Shangguan Wan was surprised in her heart. This Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant doesn’t seem to have that much enmity toward me! Or perhaps it hasn’t reacted yet, so it let me get closer to it! Perhaps the heavens want to give me a legendary fiend as well!
Shangguan Wan was very agitated. As she was excited, her eyes turned red.
In the blink of an eye, she was already before the barrier.
The transparent barrier suddenly rippled.
The terrifying aura gradually gathered and formed a wave as it went toward Shangguan Wan.
Shangguan Wan had seen how formidable this barrier was, so she held up the black shield with lingering fears, completely hiding her body behind it.
That wave of energy harshly slammed against the black shield! It let out a thick and low sound that spread far and wide.
The Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant ‘looked’ toward this side as it stared at the black shield closely. It tilted its head slightly as if it was thinking of something.
That terrifying force was so great that Shangguan Wan’s two hands holding the black shield were completely numb.
Just as she was worried about what to do next, she suddenly felt that the heavy suppression disappeared.
She looked up and saw that the force was flowing toward the sides of the black shield.
An opening suddenly appeared in the barrier.
My chance is here! Shangguan Wan was elated as she charged toward that opening without hesitation.
When Lei Laosi saw this scene, he was so angry that his lungs hurt. “You! You!”
Stupid thing, do you know who that is?! Why did you become so stupid after waking up from your sleep?! Are you blind?!
Chu Liuyue’s heart tingled. Shangguan Wan could go over clearly because of that black shield! Little Nine seems not to recognize me anymore, but it has an unknown reminiscence toward my items.
Chu Liuyue clenched her teeth and also rushed over.
This time, the man beside her no longer stopped her as he stood with his hands behind his back and silently watched Chu Liuyue fly over. He slightly squinted his narrow eyes as if in deep thought.
Chu Liuyue moved too quickly, and she almost rushed through the hole right after Shangguan Wan.
Lei Laosi gasped. “Stupid girl, are you crazy?! Quickly, come out!”
That’s not a place she can enter!
But Chu Liuyue didn’t turn around. Instead, she looked up at the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant.
The Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant also detected her arrival as it waved its wings, and a rainbow light formed a rope and tightly tied Chu Liuyue up.
Shangguan Wan turned around and sneered coldly. She doesn’t know her limits!
Chu Liuyue just felt that her organs and limbs were tightly pressed against each other, and she couldn’t breathe.
Her face rapidly flushed red, and her vision started turning black, but she still looked at the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant stubbornly.
The Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant seemed to feel something as it finally turned around again.
Chu Liuyue’s tears welled up, but she smiled.. Then, she opened her mouth and silently said, “Little Nine, it’s me.”
