Tang Tian’s subordinates formed their own system, and thus there was no need for him to worry about the mattersof the Null Division, and as for the matters of Purple Cuckoo City, Tang Tian left it to the Four Families. To him,Purple Cuckoo City was just a temporary holding which he would not stay long. The Four Families were locals andwere much more experienced in handling the affairs than him.
In the blink of the eye, Tang Tian realized that he had time for himself again, and he could train again.
“Roland Su stepped forward and spoke respectfully: “Master, we have another captive.”
Tang Tian was startled: “Captive? Is he one of us?”
Roland Su shook her head: “No, he is the Second General under Qin Zhen. When we attacked the Qin Family, shewas always in a coma. Furthermore, her situation seems to be even stranger, does Master want to take a look?”
Xu Ye was helpless against Roland Su’s perseverance, to him, the Second General should be killed. Since they werethe arms and legs of Qin Zhen, recruiting them would have no meaning, and thus killing them would be the rightchoice. But Roland Su was a kind person at heart, and seeing that the Second General was also a lady, she wanted toprotect her.
It was a pity that despite trying different methods, Roland Su could not wake the girl up.
“Even stranger?” Tang Tian became somewhat interested.
Roland Su heaved a sigh of relief, she was afraid that Ghost Face Mask was actually a ferocious and murderousperson, and might be extremely impatient, but he was instead very different from the rumors, and was much kinder,so she immediately replied: “Yes, this subordinate feels that the lady was confused by others, and killing her wouldbe a pity.”
Victor was standing by the side, and said: “Her background is mysterious, she is not from Purple Cuckoo City, whynot take a look at her, Master.”
Without hesitation, Tang Tian nodded his head: “Let’s go take a look.”
took the lead, and Tang Tian followed them and arrived deeper in the City Master’s home. At that time,only Zong Zheng Yan Mei was left out of the entire Qin Family, and the resistance the four families met was weak, sothey did not afflict too much damage on the City Master’s home, and it was rather well maintained.
Although she was in a coma, but Roland Su dared not be careless, and got many people to stand guard for her.
Upon entering the room, Tang Tian frowned, the air had a unique aura emitting from it.
On the bed lay a lady donning a silver mask, and a blue mist coiled around her entire body.
As expected, when Tang Tian entered the room, he immediately sensed the aura belonging to that of the sound mistand blue flames. Compared to the thread of law imprint in him, the mist on the lady was much heavier, to the pointthat her entire body was enveloped with the blue mist.
The strange blue mist was coming out from the lady’s body, it swirled around like a living thing, and then returnedinto her body.
Everyone’s face turned serious, Xu Ye gave a glance at Roland Su. He trained in the Life and Death Laws, and wasextremely sensitive towards the aura of death, but he had never seen or felt the blue mist before, and had difficultyjudging what it truly was.
That was why he would rather kill her, the blue mist was strange and not stable, it had the probability of affectingothers, and for the sake of this captive, it was not worth it. He had his worries, and was not happy with Roland Suand Victor, if something were to happen to the Master, who would be able to bear the consequences?
Xu Ye remained silent.
Tang Tian’s eyes lit up, although the blue mist was like poison to others, but it was a huge nourishment for him. Theblue flames and the sound mist on the Demon Figure’s hands were too little.
He walked to the bed, the Demon Figure congealed in his mind, and at the same time, his hands formed the GraspingFlower Seal.
Everyone was experts, and immediately sensed the aura around Tang Tian immediately changing. With thecompletion of the hand seal, a warm, gentle, and still aura emitted out from Tang Tian, making it as though he was acompletely different person without any killing intent.
~What technique is that?~ Everyone was spooked, they did not sense any undulation of Laws. ~Without the undulation of Laws, how could his aura change?~ And they had never seen such a warm and gentle aura before, suddenly, they felt as if they were basking under the sun. They were all strong seniors with powerful willpower, they were startled for a moment before regaining their consciousness, but their hearts were overwhelmed with shock, immediately thinking that Tang Tian was unfathomable.
Xu Ye heaved a sigh of relief, although he did not know what inheritance Tang Tian had obtained, but for it to be ableto unravel the blue mist in front of them, then it was good.
A sound came out, everyone watched as the swirling blue mist was being attracted by something, and transformedinto a slender smoke arrow that entered Tang Tian’s fingertip.
Tang Tian was immersed in the Grasping Flower Seal, his expression was gentle, his face revealing a smile.
In his mind, the gigantic Demon Figure appeared behind him, with the same posture. The Blue Mist entered his bodyand flew onto the Demon Figure’s Grasping Flower Seal fingertip. The blue flames became ablaze, and the initialbean sized small blue flames gradually became the size of a candlelight, quietly floating on its finger. The sound miston the other hand also swelled quickly, its size becoming multiple times larger, and the thread of music also becamemuch louder.
For an hour, Tang Tian sat there unmoving like a statue.
The blue mist curling around grew lesser and lesser, and the figure of the lady on the bed became clearer, the silvermask being an eyesore.
When the last trace of blue mist entered Tang Tian’s fingertips, he opened his eyes, a faint look of joy flashing past.The blue flames on the Demon Figure’s palm was already close to the size of a fist, while the sound mist on the otherpalm was around the thickness of a finger.
Even the dumb Tang Tian knew that these were useful to the Demon Figure.
After releasing the Grasping Flower Seal, he got out of the strange state of mind, and his gaze landed on the lady onthe bed. ~Mask?~ Thinking about his own Ghost Face Mask, Tang Tian became pleased, ~Seems like everyone likesto wear a mask now.~
Since she was a captive, Tang Tian was not polite at all, without saying a word, he took the mask off, revealing abeautiful face.
Tang Tian was startled, but in the next second, he blurted out: “Gu Xue!”
Xu Ye and the rest were dumbstruck, but in the next moment, everyone could not help but look at each other, withfear in their eyes. ~Master recognizes…..Master actually recognizes the lady!~
Xu Ye subconsciously wiped the perspiration off his forehead, unknowingly, there were droplets there. His heartjumped, ~Lucky for me, I did not stop them, If I had killed this girl….~
Thinking about the consequence, his heart trembled.
The young lady on the bed could vaguely hear someone shouting for her, she slowly opened her eyes, and whatentered her vision was the face that she had thought of for days and nights.
~I’m dreaming again.~
She chuckled, then closed her eyes.
“Hey hey hey, Gu Xue, wake up!”
She then felt as someone pulled her up, shaking her vigorously.
~This dream is a bit too intense.~
Gu Xue continued to smile, and continued to brew over her sleepiness, she wanted to sleep.
Tang Tian saw the smile on Gu Xue’s face, and sensed something wrong, ~Is Gu Xue injured somewhere? Or did I notremove the Law Imprint properly?~ In the anxiousness, Tang Tian’s eyes became furious, he roared out: “Gu Xue!”
His roar exploded suddenly, causing the air inside the room to be lifted and churned endlessly.
Xu Ye and the rest felt their eardrums buzzing, their brains stupefied.
Gu Xie was completely awakened by the furious roar, she opened her eyes in a daze, but the face in front of her didnot disappear, but looked at her anxiously, she was stunned, and after a moment, she muttered with uncertainty:“Tang Tian?”
Tang Tian was immediately ecstatic, he laughed out loud: “Hahahaha, Gu Xue, It’s me! You finally recognize me!That’s great!”
~How can I not recognize you…..even if you became ash, I will still recognize you….~
Gu Xue’s face suddenly blossomed out an enchanting smile, and her pupils became two bright vortices, like rainbowssuddenly twirling, the room was suddenly filled with rainbows, and Gu Xue who was on the bed started to float inthe air.
Everyone were stunned by the scene before them, Roland Su subconsciously reached for the rainbow in front of her,but grabbed nothing.
“Let us retreat.”
Tang Tian kept his smiles, his tone of speech was filled with joy, he never thought that he would be able to meet GuXue, and furthermore, after saving her, he also did not expect her to actually break through at such a time.
Xu An Zhong’s face was overwhelmed with shock, sword concept!
~Inside these rainbows, there is actually sword concept!~
~It isn’t cold at all, but illusory and warm, what kind of sword concept is this?~
After leaving the room, Tang Tian noticed a gigantic rainbow appearing in the sky above Purple Cuckoo City,causing the surprise of countless of people. Sin Domain did not have a sun, so naturally they could not haverainbows, and only heard of such an event from their ancestors, about the beautiful rainbows.
Every citizen of Purple Cuckoo City walked to the streets and raised their heads, to look at the unprecedentedbeautiful rainbow.
Tang Tian looked at the rainbow above him, the warm and illusory sword concept, made him reminisce.
Monarch Yearning Strike Sword!
Gu Xue looked as though she was basking in the sun, being cleansed by the blue sky, rainbows after rainbowsappeared in the sky, her face maintained a satisfied smile.
~Monarch Yearning Strike, my yearnings will never be destroyed.~
~The rainbows are my yearnings.~
Inside the blue mist imprisonment that confused her state of mind, she was in a half lucid state, dreaming and havingillusions. But she had never given up, she had personally experienced the destruction of her family, and had topersonally build her family back up from scraps, so she was not one with a weak personality.
She knew that she was lacking far behind Tang Tian, she knew of the minute help that she could provide him. He waslike the hero that could subdue Heaven’s Road, and she was just part of a small family in a small planet.
~But like what Tang Tian said, so what?~
~If I am weak, then I just have to become strong, strong enough to help him, just like how he helped me.~ She arranged everything in her family until they were stable and safe, before leaving on a journey without hesitation.
She had unintentionally wandered to Sin Domain, and was controlled by Qin Zhen’s blue mist, but her state of mindthat was imprisoned never gave up. For herself, for the figure that she was chasing, for the rainbows, for the manymore.
~If it’s him, he will definitely not give up.~
That was how she encouraged herself countless of times.
The resistance in her mind was extremely difficult, because in a person’s mind, nothing could be hidden, nothingcould be covered up, nothing could be avoided. Like how a bayonet could easily draw blood, she was beaten blackand blue, but she never gave up, and never subdued to it.
~I am the young lady of rainbows, How can I ever yield to them? How can I give up?~
The illusions from the blue mist, and the confusing riddling music, made Gu Xue feel extreme pain, but at the sametime it benefited her.
The Monarch Yearning Strike was an extremely unique martial technique, it embodies thoughts, emotions,conviction, trust, and thus her state of mind was being sharpened, causing her enlightenment and understanding ofMonarch Yearning Strike to become even more unfathomable.
She had unknowingly surpassed the Demon Slayer Wang Yong a long time ago.
Until finally, when she opened her eyes and saw Tang Tian, all the accumulations from the sharpening, all the scarsand wounds in her mind, and all the rainbows that never disappeared, finally found the perfect converging point, andfused together, allowing her to step into a new realm.
~The rainbows are my yearnings.~
