Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 672: Frozen
“Big Senior Apprentice Brother…”
Zhu Sijia quickly greeted with anxiety on her face.
When Ye Chuan hadn’t come out for seven straight days, she had also stayed outside for seven straight days. Old Demon of Mount Yin, Little Long’er and others were also the same. Everyone understood the condition of Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia. They were worried that Ye Chuan wouldn’t be able to bear this heavy blow.
Ye Chuan didn’t say anything. He just looked indifferently at Zhu Sijia and walked past everyone carrying Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia towards the edge of Evil Dragon Abyss. That place was the highest position of Heavenly Dragon Peak. It was also the best place to enjoy the sunrise. Zhu Sijia wanted to follow him, but Old Demon of Mount Yin stopped her and shook his head.
“Jiajia, let His Excellency calm down a bit.”
The complexion of Old Demon of Mount Yin was cloudy. They had intruded Heavenly Yao Sect and recused Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia with great difficulty, but beyond their expectation, the final result was like this. In order to help Ye Chuan block the fatal move of White Haired Heavenly Empress, Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia was about to pass away. One can well imagine Ye Chuan’s pain. At this time, instead of making meaningless consolation, letting Ye Chuan clam down a bit and let him enjoy his last moment together with Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia was much better.
“Big Senior Apprentice Brother, you must stand firm…”
Zhu Sijia muttered and stopped following. But, looking at the somewhat staggering back view of Ye Chuan, her heart was very unwell.
Ye Chuan didn’t pay any attention to anyone outside. He gradually got further away, carrying Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia on his back. Feeling the life force of the latter was getting weaker and weaker, his heart sunk more and more. On the contrary, Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia who was at the end of her life, however, got all the more energetic. Although she was still unable to open her eyes, her voice got a bit louder, “Ye Chuan, the woman who spoke just now, was she your junior apprentice sister Zhu Sijia?”
“Yes, what’s wrong?” Ye Chuan nodded his head, wondering why Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia suddenly asked this.
“Her voice truly is pleasant to hear, she must be very beautiful too. After I die, with her beside you helping me take care of you, I can rest assured.” Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia said.
Ye Chuan’s heart ached. He walked towards Evil Dragon Abyss in large strides, “No, Zixia, you will not die. Didn’t you say you still want me to accompany you to watch the sunrise?”
“The sun, is it out yet?” asked Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia.
“It’s already out, just rising from the east, now, it’s gradually crossing the dark clouds.”
Ye Chuan looked up and quickened his steps towards Evil Dragon Abyss.
“Mmm, I can already feel it, this sunlight is truly warm…” Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia said as her voice got weaker and weaker, “Ye Chuan, you say, is there really underworld and afterlife? After people die, can they really meet again?”
Ye Chuan nodded as he walked faster, dragging his exhausted body towards the edge of Evil Dragon Abyss.
In the sky, the sun was gradually coming out from layer upon layer of dark clouds, spilling myriads of golden rays. This golden light illuminated the cloud layer, making the sky look magnificent, and once this light reached the ground, it made all creations on earth charged with vitality. Under the illumination of the sunlight, Ye Chuan’s spirit shook and his speed clearly accelerated, but when he was just ten or so meters away from the edge of Evil Dragon Abyss, he suddenly stopped.
The hands of Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia that had been hugging his neck had come loose at an unknown time and was hanging down loosely. Her body had also gotten colder. Even under the illumination of the sunlight, her body was cold.
Ye Chuan called out in a small voice, slowly laying down Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia from his back and hugging in his embrace. He then reached out to touch. The latter had already stopped breathing. This time, no matter how much vitality he injected, it was useless.
At the final moment of her life, Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia insisted Ye Chuan to take her to watch the sunrise of Cloud Mist Sect. Myriads of golden rays sprinkled from the horizon as the rose from the horizon, creating a magnificent scenery, unfortunately, Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia was already unable to see this. Before she opened her eyes to watch this sunrise, she stopped breathing forever in Ye Chuan’s back.
A heartbreaking cry suddenly resounded throughout the sky.
Zhu Sijia, Little Long’er and others’ hearts shook. They knew what had happened. Zhu Sijia couldn’t endure anymore and rushed towards Evil Dragon Abyss. Little Long’er, Old Demon of Mount Yin and others also followed behind. They were filled with worries. Nan Tiandu who was rushing over from a distant big mountain of Cloud Mist Sect paused. He was holding a jade bottle and inside that jade bottle, there was a green-colored medicinal pill.
When everyone was waiting outside Heavenly Dragon Hall, Nan Tiandu had resolutely left the sect to look for his Master Wilderness Guardian Meng Qi. He knelt before him for three days and three nights. Finally, his master consumed a thousand years’ worth of energy to refine this life-extending pill. Originally, Wilderness Guardian Meng Qi intended to use this pill when he had to cross his calamity, but since Nan Tiandu, his disciple, begged him, he gave it to him.
As Wilderness Guardian who was above any forces and sects, Cyan Robed Elder Meng Qi never took part in the private affairs of Wilderness World. Because of a chance encounter, he gave Ye Chuan a few pointers, but it was impossible for him to use all his strength to help Ye Chuan. However, although he could remain indifferent to anyone else, it was impossible towards Nan Tiandu. After fusing with Evil Dragon Meng Ao on the physical and spiritual level, now, Nan Tiandu was his only personal disciple.
Nan Tiandu suddenly roared and revealing his Soaring Dragon Rat form, he didn’t waste any time to fly rapidly towards Heavenly Dragon Peak. When he reached Evil Dragon Abyss, he discovered that Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia had truly stopped breathing. He was a step too late.
Ye Chuan didn’t utter a word, turning a blind eye to the people arrived here. It was unknown where he found a sarcophagus, he gently picked up Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia and placed her into it, then quietly stared at her face without moving. Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia seemed peaceful, it looked like she had just fallen asleep and was even dreaming something good as a hint of smile could be seen on her face.
At the last moment of her life, although she was unable to see the sunrise of Cloud Mist Sect, being able to die on Ye Chuan’s back, perhaps, she was already very satisfied and happy.
The sounds of sobs resounded. Ye Chuan didn’t cry, just looked stupefied. Zhu Sijia and other disciples of Cloud Mist Sect who had rushed over, however, kept wiping their tears.
Little Long’er also cried. Among the numerous dear ones and followers around Ye Chuan, only he followed Ye Chuan to explore Demonic Dragon Paradise Realm. He was perfectly clear about how hard it was for Ye Chuan and Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia to walk together. In the end, they came to an agreement to cultivate together and promised to break off the binding of the sects, then explore the world together. Ye Chuan climbed up one step at a time with painstaking effort and experienced the baptism of blood and fire, gradually becoming an expert, but, Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia passed away, she was unable to wait for that day.
In the ice-cold sarcophagus, a cold qi formation was placed which quickly wrapped Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia’s body. This was Cold Icebound Restriction Ye Chuan placed on the sarcophagus, which froze Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia’s body.
After a long period of time, Ye Chuan finally covered the sarcophagus and began to lay down heavy restrictions on the sarcophagus. In Heavenly Yao Sect, even when facing the danger of White Haired Heavenly Empress Zhao Tianbi, he was reluctant to easily use the dragon vein crystal, but he inlaid it on the sarcophagus without any hesitation in order to supply continuous energy to the restrictions of the sarcophagus.
After a person’s life ended, even a Peak Sage Realm expert had no way to resurrect that person, but what about after surpassing his previous life’s pinnacle, what about breaking past Peak Sage Realm?
Ye Chuan had a great regret in his heart. He froze Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia’s body because he wanted to preserve her body until he surpassed his previous life’s pinnacle.
In his previous life, he just concealed heaven, in this life, he wanted to swallow heaven. Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia quietly lying in the sarcophagus urged him to long even more for the might to swallow heaven.
