Chapter 1056 – Departure and Return Part 5
Lu Yang cupped his fists respectfully while his gaze shot toward the little princess’s gravely paled face.
‘I’ve not forgotten that this woman nearly took Master’s life…’
The little princess’s legs gave way, sitting on the ground. Despair was expressed on her face.
‘Originally, I wanted to see how Grandfather kills this woman. Yet, I didn’t expect that I will be seeing the sight where Grandfather was killed in the end.
‘I’ve been relying on Grandfather’s influence to do whatever I wanted all these years. Currently, I’ve lost that support. My good days are over…’
It was laughable that the current little princess didn’t feel sorrowful regarding the death of her grandfather who had always been showering her with love. Yet, what she feared only was that since her grandfather died, she wouldn’t have any backer behind her back…
“Mo Xi, we can leave this place to Lu Yang. What about you? Do you want to leave with me?”
Mu Ru Yue smiled as she focused her gaze on the youth’s fair face.
Mo Xi nodded. With a candid smile on his face, his star-like gaze landed on Mu Ru Yue’s body as he replied, “I want to go wherever Xiao Yue goes. Anywhere with Xiao Yue will be my second home…”
“Alright, let’s head home.”
Mo Xi’s body shuddered when he heard the word home. The smile on his face intensified.
‘That’s right, we’re heading home…’
Mu Ru Yue halted her steps once she was outside the fire sea purgatory, releasing Feng Jing Tian from the Alchemy Book. With a slight smile, she asked, “Feng Jing Tian, where do you plan to go now?”
“Your physical body has already been destroyed. If you want to follow me in leaving this place, you must stay within the Alchemy Book. I can help you so that your soul won’t dissipate during the gracing period of time for you to find a suitable host.”
A soul could remain living inside the continent for a period of time after they died. But they needed to find a suitable host during that time frame. If they weren’t able to find one during that period of time, they would have two outcomes. One would be to head to a hell where nobody had gone to before while the other was to have their soul dissipated.
Hell was different from the eighteen layers of purgatory. The eighteen layers of purgatory was a training ground constructed similarly to hell. However, hell was the genuine place of terror and there were countless experts within it!
“I will stay at this place.” Feng Jing Tian’s scarlet eyes locked onto Mu Ru Yue’s body. With a magnificent smile on his charming face, he continued, “Woman, I want to help you and staying here will be the best way in helping you. I definitely won’t want to stay within the Alchemy Book. More importantly, I don’t want to survive under your protection.”
Mu Ru Yue smirked slightly as she replied, “I had already predicted your decision. Hence, I will support your decision no matter what.”
‘I am a man. I am especially a man that dislikes being a weakling.
‘Since so, how can I depend on a woman to survive? I will rather stay within this purgatory to increase my might. Following that, I will head out to seek for her…’
“Mo Xi, let’s go.”
Mu Ru Yue cast a final glance at Feng Jing Tian before she turned around and walked forward. Quickly, her figure disappeared from Feng Jing Tian’s gaze…
Yet, Feng Jing Tian didn’t withdraw his gaze even after the white robes had vanished from his sight. He just quietly looked in the direction where she left…
It was only after a long time that he withdrew his gaze. He turned around heading toward another direction…
Red robes fluttered among the wind. The expression of his handsome face became increasingly resolute under the red glow from the sky…
‘I will definitely let her see a new me the next time we meet. I will also have a better qualification to stand behind her back…’
