Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 465: Heart has a fierce tiger
The night shrouded the vast sea.
The sea was calm as if a mirror plane. The sea was always especially calm before the dawn as if it was also asleep. Everything was quiet and silent.
At that time, a burst of cold wind blew over the sea surface faster than a flying sword.
Plague Archfiend Abasi was burning with impatience. He was using all his power to fly at his full speed.
He didn’t care no matter what happened to Tuoba Xiaoniao, moreover, she had already gotten rid of the seal on her cultivation using the technique imparted by Ye Chuan, but the situation of Ye Chuan was anything but reassuring.
After forcibly using Spirit Division Technique twice, the spirit of Ye Chuan had suffered great damage and his spirit was getting weaker and weaker. Now, he was not even able to condense his small man form, only vague qi cyclone remained. If his spirit was not quickly returned into his body, then his spirit might completely dissipate.
Spirit Division Technique was an amazing technique, was heaven-defying ancient technique, but the consequences of forcibly using it was also very serious.
With the current Rank 4 Daoist Master realm cultivation of Ye Chuan, just using once was already peeling off a layer of skin, using twice, it was already far beyond his limits. In addition, he had also suffered the attack of Lord Qi. Thus, his spirit was already so greatly damaged that he only had one last breath left, and even after Plague Archfiend Abasi using his technique, it was hard to maintain this one last breath, his spirit was already on the brink of collapse.
“Your Excellency, hold on, you must hold on, we are almost there!”
Plague Archfiend Abasi gritted his teeth and used all his strength to fly. He hadn’t expected the condition of Ye Chuan to be so serious. Now, he was regretting for not making a move earlier. And while flying, he said to Tuoba Xiaoniao, “Miss Tuoba, quick, speak to His Excellency, don’t let his spirit lose consciousness.”
After letting out one’s spirit, one should fear encountering heaven-defying evil spirits, and secondly, one should also worry about not being able to return to one’s body in time after one’s spirit was injured. En route, if the spirit lost consciousness, then they might never wake up and no longer be able to return to their body.
“Okay, I understand!”
Tuoba Xiaoniao nodded her head with tears in her eyes. Seeing the spirit of Ye Chuan getting weaker and weaker, she wanted to help but she didn’t know where to start. She reached out her hand wanting to touch him, but her fingertip passed through him. It was impossible to touch him.
“Noble son Ye, it’s all my fault, I implicated you!”
“Noble son Ye, why did you let out your spirit to save me? Why were you so stupid like that?”
“Noble son Ye, don’t leave, don’t leave me, I am Tuoba Xiaoniao, didn’t you say I am your wife? Do you already not recognize me? Noble son Ye……”
Tuoba Xiaoniao said and burst out in tears. Helplessly watching the spirit of Ye Chuan getting weaker and weaker, and already not recognizing anyone, tears flowed down her cheeks.
Plague Archfiend Abasi accelerated again, he recklessly began to burn his own spirit in change for even faster speed. Now, they could already see the vague outline of nameless deserted island where the sea dragon boat was docked. But, his heart was getting heavier and heavier as he sensed that the spirit of Ye Chuan had already dissipated.
In the beginning, there was a faint phantom of Ye Chuan’s spirit, but now, he was unable to maintain even a small qi cyclone. It changed into specks of starlight wanting to dissipate between heaven and earth. At the same time, the physical body of Ye Chuan that was sitting cross-legged on the nameless deserted island also closed his eyes and stopped breathing.
When the spirit dissipated, it signifies the end of life. Even if the physical body was not rotted, it would not have any thoughts and consciousness, becoming a living corpse.
Zhu Sijia, Little Long’er and others who had rushed over earlier after sensing something was wrong couldn’t help crying. They wished to help him somehow, but they didn’t know what to do. Ever since the ancient times, Cloud Mist Sect was good at refining all kinds of pill medicines, but in the current situation before them, Zhu Sijia was completely helpless. Even if Great Elder was here, he might also be at his wit’s end. Even experienced and knowledgeable Old Demon of Mount Yin Rhodes was also helpless and didn’t know what to do. Now, everyone knew that the spirit of Ye Chuan had met a mishap, but they were also at their wits’ end.
A clear and crisp hasty ringing of a bell suddenly resounded on the sea surface.
A small bell suddenly flew out from within the body of Ye Chuan. If Nan Tiandu was here, then he would have noticed that this bell was something given to Ye Chuan by that cyan robed Seventh Elder.
This clear and crisp sound of bell got louder and louder, directly reverberating in the mind of people, seemingly penetrating the time and space.
The stopped heart of Ye Chuan began to beat again and his body suddenly shook. But, his eyes were still closed and he subconsciously made hand gestures.
Then, Cyan Lotus Lamp floating above his head suddenly emitted cyan light.
This cyan light penetrated through clouds and spread out, then the spirit of Ye Chuan that was about to completely dissipated condensed again.
Sensing the changes in the spirit of Ye Chuan, Plague Archfiend Abasi was overjoyed. He roared and accelerated again towards that nameless deserted island, and the spirit of Ye Chuan rushed into his body on its own.
Fuu! Ye Chuan opened his mouth and exhaled a mouthful of chaotic qi and slowly opened his eyes.
Compared to usual time, his spirit was exhausted and the energy fluctuation within his body was far inferior, but when all was said and done, he was still alive. Upon seeing this, Zhu Sijia, Little Long’er and others who were waiting around him rejoiced and relaxed. Tuoba Xiaoniao was also happy and she stared fixedly at Ye Chuan in fear that if she blink her eyes, she would discover that this was a dream and Ye Chuan would disappear if she wakes up from this dream.
A disciple of Cloud Mist Sect rushed over and kneeling in front of Ye Chuan, he said, “Reporting to Big Senior Apprentice Brother, we discover a dozen or so armored warships in the east, they are rushing straight towards us!”
Before Zhu Sijia and others understood what was going on, a scout brought back a piece of astonishing news.
It was dark, but a dozen or so armored warships were sailing straight towards them, this was not accidental. Clearly, their whereabouts was exposed. These armored warships had come prepared!
Came so quickly!
Ye Chuan and Plague Archfiend Abasi looked at each and became solemn, “How far are they?”
The aura of Ye Chuan was weak. He was not recovered, but his time was calm and sharp. Just as in the past, he was calm and composed. This time, he absolutely shouldn’t lose his calm. If he loses his calm, then the disciples of Cloud Mist Sect, warriors of Sea Demon Clan and the disciples of Bellowing Waves Sect would be unable to bear.
“Roughly 50 li away, but their speed is very fast, it wouldn’t take long for them to arrive!” The scout answered tensely.
“Transmit my order to withdraw immediately. Other than sea demon warriors, all others are to board the captured armored warship and prepare to fight!” Ye Chuan gave orders making a prompt decision, then turning around, he said, “Jiajia, how many Five Step Fragrance have you refined?”
“175 bottles, only two-thirds of the task is complete.”
Zhu Sijia looked ashamed.
When Ye Chuan entered seclusion cultivation and went out to explore Bellowing Waves Island in spirit form, she had been refining Five Step Fragrance, unfortunately, her refining speed was much slower than she had imagined. Moreover, with the exhaustion of physical strength and energy, his refining speed got slower and slower.
“That’s enough, instruct Li Dingxi and other disciples of Bellowing Waves Sect to prepare.”
Ye Chuan slowly stood up and looked at the distant sea enveloped in the dim light of night. Although his spirit was exhausted and his body was weak, his heart had a fierce together and his eyes were blazing like torches.
