EIF - Book 04 Chapter 050: Waner Appears Again
The blood dragon opened its mouth as it charged at Gu Hai.
I can’t get out? Gu Hai did not think of trying again. Instead, he took out a flying ship and fled into the city.
Gu Hai flew into the distance in the blink of an eye.
“Humph! Fleeing? Where can you flee to? To think that you want to flee when you are in the Blood Dragon Lifespan Ritual Array?” Mister Dongfang said with a ferocious expression.
The blood dragon quickly weaved through the city, no longer caring about the others. Mister Dongfang wanted it to swallow up Gu Hai quickly.
“Brother-in-Law, it is all my fault! It is all my fault!” Long Wanyu stood on the flying ship, feeling frustrated and anxious.
“Princess, don’t worry. Since Mister Gu told you to go first, he must have a way to deal with this,” Sima Feng consoled.
Long Wanyu ignored Sima Feng. Instead, she looked at Ju Lu and said, “Does Brother-in-Law have more of those sword talismans?”
“There’s no more. The earlier two people gave him only two.” Ju Lu shook his head.
Sima Feng glared at him.
Will it kill you to lie and say that there is more? What if the princess acts on impulse again?
“Only two? Both have already been used? Brother-in-Law, nothing must happen to you!” Long Wanyu clenched her fists in anxiety.
Flames spewed out in the city’s western sector, a large amount of Hanba’s fire emerging. However, the blood dragon only focused on chasing Gu Hai, allowing the surrounding cultivators to catch a breath. On the other side, Qin Zibai and the Bi-An King continued their stalemate.
The blood dragon narrowed the gap in the blink of an eye.
Gu Hai showed a sullen expression. Then, he suddenly remembered what Sha said previously.
Qing Feng and I will go ahead. If that woman comes out…ha! I can’t do anything about her with my current strength. Goodbye!
Seal? Who is suppressed under Dragon Vein City?
The eastern sector? The western sector?
“Everyone, do you want to go out?” Gu Hai shouted.
The surrounding cultivators paused.
“There is an underground palace seal in the eastern sector of the city. I believe everyone knows where it is. Break it, and we will be safe. I’ll draw the blood dragon’s attention. You all go break that underground palace!” Gu Hai shouted.
Gu Hai’s voice spread to every corner of the city.
“Seal? Underground palace?”
Many cultivators immediately rushed to the underground palace in the eastern sector without hesitating.
Mister Dongfang raised his eyebrows. “You know something? You bastard! You can’t do that!”
“Why can’t I do that?” Gu Hai retorted coldly.
“Humph! I’ll kill you first. If you don’t die, you will always be a danger!” Mister Dongfang seemed obsessed as he controlled the blood dragon to charge at Gu Hai.
Gu Hai suddenly realized that the blood dragon intentionally avoided the Hanba’s fire in the western sector.
“You are afraid of fire?” Gu Hai’s eyes narrowed.
Gu Hai’s flying ship flew into the fire above. The blood dragon flew up as well, doing its best to avoid the fire.
“Ha! It is good that you have something you fear!” Gu Hai said with a cold smile.
Gu Hai flew around the endlessly spewing flames. The movements of the blood dragon’s vast body immediately became restrained.
Sizzle! Sizzle! Sizzle! Sizzle! Sizzle!
Indeed, when Hanba’s fire touched the blood dragon, black smoke came out of the blood dragon as though Hanba’s fire was burning it.
“Sure enough, you are afraid of fire. Haha!” Gu Hai’s eyes lit up.
As long as the blood dragon feared fire, he could slowly lure the blood dragon into disaster. The blood dragon would run out of energy sooner or later.
Gu Hai flew among the flames in the sky while a group of cultivators opened the underground palace in the distance, breaking the seal.
Mister Dongfang appeared tense, showing a ferocious expression while gritting his teeth.
Suddenly, the blood dragon seemed to ignore its well-being, letting the fire burn it. It coiled its body, forming a large enclosure trapping Gu Hai’s flying ship. Now, there was nowhere for Gu Hai to go. The dragon head approached from the top, forcing the flying ship downwards towards the center of the fire.
“Taking me down with you?” Gu Hai’s face sank.
The sky was right above, but if Gu Hai headed up, he would get swallowed. The blood dragon’s body was all around him. There was nowhere else to go but down.
However, there was the surging fire below.
Sizzle! Sizzle! Sizzle! Sizzle! Sizzle!
The fire burned the blood dragon everywhere, making thick black smoke appear. However, the blood dragon seemed not to care as it faced Gu Hai.
Gu Hai’s flying ship could only head towards the sea of flames to avoid the coiled-up blood dragon.
“Going down together? You underestimate my blood dragon. Indeed, the fire can hurt the blood dragon, but it is only hurt. The blood dragon consumed everyone to store up energy so that it could last longer in the fire and enter the ground beneath the fire. Hanba’s fire? Gu Hai, if you don’t die today, all my efforts will go to waste. Although I suffered great losses, the blood dragon can eat the others and return to its peak as long as you die! Now, die!” Mister Dongfang roared.
The blood dragon’s head pressed down. The flying ship crashed into something within the fire.
The fire was where the altar was previously. Now, it was spewing out Hanba’s fire like a volcano.
After the flying ship shattered, Gu Hai fell into the depths of that volcano.
“No! Brother-in-Law!” Long Wanyu started crying in horror outside the city.
Gu Hai fell into that volcano?
“Your Majesty?” Ju Lu exclaimed.
“Hanba’s fire? Is Mister Gu…” Sima Feng’s expression changed.
However, when Sima Feng looked at Long Wanyu, he worried she would act on impulse again. He immediately put on a calm front and said, “Mister Gu should be alright, right?”
“Brother-in-Law burned to death! Brother-in-Law! Sob! Sob! Sob!” Long Wanyu revealed an expression of despair.
“Princess, His Majesty is still alive,” someone at the side said.
“The fire swallowed up Brother-in-Law, but he is still alive? How do you know?” Long Wanyu countered in pain and sorrow.
“This humble one is a Han Royal Dynasty official, connected to the Han Nation’s blessings. If anything were to happen to His Majesty, my Han Royal Dynasty’s blessings would scatter. I would be able to sense that. Right now, the blessings are still there. His Majesty is still there,” that person said.
“Really?” Long Wanyu immediately said excitedly.
“I don’t dare to lie.” That Han Royal Dynasty official nodded.
“Brother-in-Law, you have to come out. You must. I will listen to everything you say in the future.” Long Wanyu looked at the volcano’s mouth, praying.
The western sector had the volcano mouth, and the eastern sector had the underground palace.
Many cultivators rushed to the underground palace to destroy it. After the blood dragon pushed Gu Hai into the volcano, Mister Dongfang felt sure that Gu Hai had died, so he immediately controlled the blood dragon to head for the eastern sector.
Large portions of the blood dragon were burned. Clearly, the earlier fire dealt the blood dragon significant damage.
“You bastards! Don’t touch the underground palace! I’ll eat all of you up!” Mister Dongfang said with a ferocious expression.
The burned blood dragon roared as it rushed towards the underground palace.
Mister Dongfang did not notice that as he forced Gu Hai into the volcano mouth, a black-clad figure had leaped into the fire as well.
Inside the volcano:
The fire instantly burned away Gu Hai’s clothes.
Gu Hai felt incredible pain as the fire burned him.
Many bones appeared over Gu Hai’s body as he tried to block Hanba’s fire.
The previously incredibly tough bones all vaporized in the blink of an eye, burned by the fire.
Gu Hai operated his fire deity palace at full power, absorbing the fire on his skin.
However, there was too much fire. The earlier spark already took Gu Hai quite a while to absorb and even burned his arm before he could do so. Now, there was fire everywhere around him.
There was no way for Gu Hai to block it.
Is it over? Am I going to burn to death here?
The fire was too ferocious. Gu Hai’s consciousness started to lose focus.
Just at this moment, a figure arrived by Gu Hai’s side, grabbing hold of him.
Despite his blurry state of mind, Gu Hai clearly saw this person’s face.
“Fairy Waner? Why did you not leave the city? Quickly leave. This place is dangerous,” Gu Hai said weakly.
It was Fairy Waner. Right now, she bit her lips as she looked at Gu Hai amid the fire.
The fire could not do anything to Fairy Waner due to her fire cauldron physique. Previously, Qin Zibai and Xi Yan had targeted her because of this, and Gu Hai saved her.
Right now, Gu Hai was already burned to the point where his flesh split.
“Hanba’s fire already entered your body? Even if you get out, you will burn to death unless my nascent soul enters your body and helps you refine and absorb the fire.” Mixed emotions flashed in Fairy Waner’s eyes, suggesting a mental struggle.
However, the look in her eyes turned resolute after a while. She hugged Gu Hai, and her moist lips suddenly pressed against his burning tongue.
Fairy Waner’s clothes instantly vanished as she hugged Gu Hai.
While in a daze, Gu Hai suddenly felt his Worldly Sorrowful Endowment automatically circulating.
The Worldly Sorrowful Endowment only circulates when I am doing the thing that a man and a woman do together. Now…
Gu Hai suddenly felt a cool sensation moving around on its own in his body.
The source of this cool sensation seemed to be something that had entered him through his lower body. Everywhere it went, it drew the fire in his body.
Gu Hai’s consciousness slowly regained focus. Then, his consciousness entered his fire deity palace.
There, he saw Fairy Waner’s nascent soul. It was in his body again.
Fairy Waner’s nascent soul had entered Gu Hai’s fire deity palace and appeared to be interacting with his nascent embryo. Fairy Waner’s nascent soul absorbed all of the surging Hanba’s fire, refined it, and sent a portion of it to the nascent embryo.
Suddenly, a tear appeared in Gu Hai’s nascent embryo. Then, it wildly absorbed a large amount of fire through that tear.
Outside, Gu Hai’s and Fairy Waner’s naked bodies connected to each other. The surrounding Hanba’s fire flooded into Gu Hai’s body.
With the protection of Fairy Waner’s nascent soul, Hanba’s fire no longer harmed Gu Hai. Instead, it nourished his body, bolstering the energy of his nascent soul.
Crack! Crack! Crack! Crack!
The burned parts of Gu Hai’s body fell off, and his skin regenerated, now even fairer than before.
The nascent embryo cracked open. This is the second layer of the Nascent Soul Realm? The nascent embryo is still growing stronger? This energy? Gu Hai’s consciousness grew increasingly clearer.
Gu Hai finally understood what had happened. In order to save him, Fairy Waner…
As his body moved instinctively, his eyes opened, and he looked at Fairy Waner.
At this moment, her eyes were narrowed to lines. She seemed intoxicated as she let out soft moans.
After a while, her body suddenly trembled and spasmed.
A loud sound came from Fairy Waner’s body. Then, a strong aura spread out.
Feeling confused, Fairy Waner opened her eyes. “I…? Why did my heavenly palace suddenly get established?”
