Chapter 132: Move your hand away
“Release her!” Upon viewing Wei Suo’s despicable action of seizing that absolute beauty, that black robed cultivator issued with menacing iciness; his appearance still masked by his robe. A wave of killing intent had seemingly congealed in the air around him.
“Ah, did you think I’m stupid?! Big boss, I reckon I’ll be instantly beaten to dregs upon releasing her.” Wei Suo refuted. “I’m warning you, don’t try and pull any tricks. I have several artifacts that can be cast extremely rapidly. If my hand were to tremble slightly, and accidentally lands on her body, then it wouldn’t be good for everyone. I swear, I was honestly just passing by, and rescued her along the way. You can just treat it as nothing happened, and spare me alright?”
The black robed cultivator remained still, but his killing intent compounded densely; as though he was deliberating for any method that could swiftly assassinate Wei Suo, without him harming the female cultivator.
“He truly doesn’t harbor any ill intent.” Yet at this moment, that absolutely beauty that was seized by Wei Suo voiced out with exceptional composure. “Just let him leave.”
That black robed male cultivator was slightly taken aback.
Then, the absolute beauty gently glanced towards the lateral Wei Suo and continued, “After you release me, you are free to leave. We’ll definitely not obstruct you.”
“Ah?” Wei Suo, still in the midst of his criminal act, became slightly speechless.
“Previously, it was indeed you who’d saved me. If not, I wouldn’t have made it out of that region.” Apprehensive that the black robed cultivator would pull a fast one, that absolute beauty further explained. “Moreover, it was also true that you were about to leave previously, and you hadn’t extracted the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus. Indeed, there isn’t the slightest bit of malice.”
After listening to the absolute beauty’s words, that black robed cultivator remained silent but the murderous aura around him had dispersed greatly.
“NO!” Wei Suo was still unwilling and directly shook his head, immediately refuting her. “My cultivation is much lower than yours; if you guys decided to renege on your words, it would be impossible for me to even flee.”
“This one have always valued a promise as a thousand in gold, I have never reneged on my words before.” Hearing Wei Suo’s worry, the black robed cultivator immediately pacified solemnly.
“Well you can say that, but I’ve never experienced it before.” Wei Suo twitched his lips. “Whatever the case, it’s not possible.”
The black robed cultivator felt his fury flaring up, but forcefully suppressed it and coldly replied, “Then what do you suggest?”
“How about you remain here without moving, and allow her to escort me there. Once I turn to leave, we’ll go our separate ways and not tangle with each other anymore. What do you say?” Wei Suo pointed towards the distant forest near this earthen pit.
The black robed robe cultivator argued coldly, “Then how do you expect me to trust you?”
Wei Suo curled his lips and answered, “This one has always valued a promise as a thousand in gold, I have never reneged on my words before.”
“Fine.” Just when that black robed cultivator could no longer resist the urge to attack, the female cultivator hostage interrupted. “We’ll just listen to what he says.”
Hearing her speak, that black robed cultivator no longer replied but proceeded to keep this four directional flags; dissipating that silver-black smokescreen. Without moving, he continued to glare at Wei Suo.
“Alright.” After pulling away from the pit of that Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus, and distancing away from that black robed cultivator for an entire 600 metres, that female cultivator, the number 1 beauty Wei Suo had ever seen, finally spoke out. “Can you release me now?”
“No, no.” Wei Suo rejected and shook his head. “I’m being honest, as long as you escort me to there then it’ll be fine. Releasing you now is really too dangerous for me.”
The female cultivator paused and replied, “Then, can you at least move away your hand?”
This time, Wei Suo was instantly stunned. All this time, his hand had actually been placed over one of the female cultivator’s perk; no wonder it felt so soft and comfortable. Wei Suo perspired frantically as he shifted his hand away, and hurriedly explained, “This was really an accident. This is the first time committing such an act, I was too nervous and had no choice. I’m just at Heavenly Circuit Stage level 1, that big boss was probably at Heavenly Circuit Stage level 4-5.”
“I’ll give you two lotus leaves of the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus. If your luck is good, you can still become a half-spirit root cultivator even if an Ice Spirit Root cannot be formed. If you have certain suitable pellet recipe, and can concoct out high grade pellets, then the chances of forming an Ice Spirit Root is still above 60%.” It was as though the female cultivator had ignored his earlier explanation, and abruptly added in such a statement.
“Eh?” Wei Suo was immediately dumbfounded, his awkward hand still lingering after moving it away from her chest.
“Based on your concealment robe and your concealment skill technique, if you had stolen this perfect Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus and hid yourself, he wouldn’t have entered; or perhaps, he would think someone had infiltrated in and killed me, this choosing to pursue the perpetrator.” The female cultivator very seriously uttered. “You were probably desiring to harvest this Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus, but your cultivation was too shallow to do so. Furthermore, I had coincidentally arrived, and thus hid yourself. Although I wasn’t like you, and was able to harvest this lotus, you had truly saved my life. Take it as we were cooperating, and this two lotus leaves as your reasonable remuneration.”
“Ah, then thank you.” Wei Suo wasn’t a fool that would lose all memories upon seeing her face. With such a pleasant gift presented to him, he obviously wouldn’t refuse and very bluntly accepted.
The female cultivator breathed deeply, as though she was adjusting her current emotions before she gently added, “However, I also wish that you would completely forget everything you saw tonight.”
“This, I will try my best.” Wei Suo smiled wryly as he nodded. He was indeed speaking the truth. For such a scenery like tonight, it would be arduously difficult to forget; unless he chose to cultivate those ‘sentiment severing techniques’ or any ‘heartless emotion cultivation divine arts’.
Unknown if the female cultivator’s body was too overly feeble or her emotions were agitated, but after hearing Wei Suo’s response, her body trembled slightly.
Feeling sorry, Wei Suo immediately compensated with another line. “But I can promise that I wouldn’t tell anyone this, because I myself am unaware of your identity.”
His sentence seemed to have reminded the female cultivator of something as she immediately replied. “Then you must swear to me on one condition. Even for that cultivator that was with me, you cannot divulge any news pertaining to him.”
“Fine, I swear that if he’s ever leaked, then I would be unable to reach the Thought Division Stage in the future.” Wei Suo very blatantly sore a death-oath to this Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator. Besides, he had only frequented the Sky Valley to test his luck for the Amethyst-Fox rose and to earn some spiritual stones. Although he had accidentally heard that male cultivator was called Dugu Yun, he had no interest in his status whatsoever. In fact, he was dying to immediately disappear from his eyes, the further he distanced himself from such a person with vastly higher cultivation, the better.”
The female cultivator then paused silently.
“You must be careful yourself, I cannot confirm that there isn’t any cultivator lying in ambush here, waiting to kill and plunder. I’ll help you attract some attention, hurry up and get your dude to protect you.” After reaching the exit of this pit, and receiving and storing the two leaves of the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus, he once again stole a glance at this female of unprecedented beauty. Then, Wei Suo soared and entered the forest, simultaneously and purposefully laughing hysterically. “HAHA, the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus is finally in my hands!”
“How are you feeling?” Within a snap of one’s fingers, that black robed cultivator had arrived beside the female.
“I’m fine, you don’t have to chase. Let’s prepare to leave Sky Valley.” Still clad in her violet palace robes, the female cultivator retrieved a pellet medicine from her Treasure Receiving Pocket and swallowed it.
While regulating her breathing, she quietly glanced towards the direction Wei Suo took off in, and kept a tiny cyan pellet medicine in her palm.
Although she was genuine excessively weak and was incapable of activating her true energy, if she really wished for Wei Suo to stay, she could’ve definitely done so.
“Haha, Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus! The Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus has a total of 7 petals, two leaves can still be considered a treasure! Hurry, Wei Suo, produce it for me to examine it closely. I’ve never once come close to even viewing a Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus!”
At the instant Wei Suo dashed into the forest, the green gowned Old Man laughed wildly in ecstasy.
“Damn, we’ll talk after I can successfully preserve this life. Only a ghost would know if there are other cultivators nearby, I don’t want to be reduced to dead dregs even before having the opportunity to look at the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus up close.” The anxious Wei Suo soared frantically for a while before finally halting. Then, he immediately executed his ‘Secret-Concealment Art’ and gently circulated it. Even if there had been a cultivator following him, his traces had long vanished to oblivion.
“There shouldn’t be a problem. The area here could’ve been swept clean by that Heavenly Circuit Stage level 4-5 cultivator already.” After a two incense sticks’ worth of time had elapsed, the Old Man’s voice rang in Wei Suo’s ears. By now, he had already silently shifted himself to a faraway position without a trace. “What did you witness just now? Why did you promise her that you wouldn’t divulge what you saw tonight to anyone.”
Wei Suo whispered out a curse. “I just told her I wouldn’t mention it to anyone, I even took an oath; did you really expect me to tell you?”
“Wakao, what a good Wei Suo you are.” The Old Man turned infuriated as he angrily fumed. “I’ll stop helping you search for spirit medicines!”
Wei Suo snorted in response. “Don’t search then, I implore you to quiet down first. I have to first seek out a path. Besides, I’m not in a rush to do so, at most I’ll just breakthrough at a slower rate.”
“…..” The old man became utterly speechless at Wei Suo’s resolution. However after a brief moment, the green gowned Old Man seemed to have suddenly thought of something as he laughed loudly. “Flame Marrow Pellet! No wonder that female cultivator was burning within as though she was about to die from it. It appears that she had consumed that spirit medicine; first she employed a unique fire elemental cultivation technique, before utilizing a Flame Marrow Pellet to suppress the chilling yin energy! In the end, the fire energy within her couldn’t discharge out smoothly, and reduced her into a dried lantern. Haha, I understand now. She must’ve stripped naked, and you saw everything right. No wonder you appeared as if you had been poisoned just now. A youth is truly a youth, one that has no restrain!”
“Wakao!” This time, it was Wei Suo’s turn to turn speechless.
“Your luck with women is really too excellent. That female cultivator was truly a rare absolute beauty in this cultivation world. I reckon she isn’t inferior at all to Shui Ling’er.” Instead, the Old Man immediately turned gloomy, and rebuked, “Such a wonder affair ongoing, and you didn’t invite me to watch! It has been 20,000 years since I’ve seen a naked female cultivator, you are really inhumane.”
After hearing the last sentence, Wei Suo’s vision darkened and almost fainted to the ground. Concurrently he thought to himself, if I ever have the chance to spark something with that female cultivator, I’ll definitely place this Ghost Raising Jar further away. If not, this green gowned Old Man would definitely spy on everything.
