Chapter 224: Life’s Origin Parasite Advancement
“I never thought that the Bloodthirsty Patriarch would set such a trap.” Jun Yichen had returned to his formerly expressionless way of speaking.
“What do you intend to do? Leaving the blood essence in you is dangerous. You might die!” Ye Jiuge felt that if she did not exaggerate the issue, this brat would not be sufficiently afraid.
“Absorb and digest the blood essence.” Jun Yichen was firm in his decision. He did not hesitate one bit.
He carried the weight of seeking revenge for his clan members on his shoulders, so he had to find ways to get stronger—even if it meant risking his life.
Seeing him like this, Ye Jiuge could not discourage him. She looked to Zi Shang for help. “Do you have any way to help him?”
“The battle is between him and the Bloodthirsty Patriarch.” Zi Shang’s expression was calm.
If Jun Yichen could not absorb the blood essence and make it his own, he could forget about taking revenge.
“That’s right. It is my destiny and obstacle. Only I can break past this.” Jun Yichen stood up, reaching behind him to pluck out the Lighting Fire Needle. It fell from his hand, and the rest of the golden needles on his body dropped away too.
Ye Jiuge summoned the Lightning Fire Needle and the rest of the golden needles back with a spell. Then, she took out the newly produced Cherry Pills and told Jun Yichen, “These are the new Spiritual Beast Pills that I produced. I hope they will serve you well!”
“Why are they red?” Jun Yichen opened the bottle and looked at Ye Jiuge in confusion.
“I made a little tweak to the recipe. I’m confident that you will be happy with them.” Ye Jiuge did not elaborate. Connoisseurs knew when they ate something good.
Jun Yichen doubtfully took a pill to his mouth, then his eyes widened. His expression was one of disbelief.
“Look! Mind-calming and qi-gathering!”
Ye Jiuge felt proud. Jun Yichen was rather adept at identifying the good stuff.
Jun Yichen was not paying attention to what Ye Jiuge was saying. He just poured the whole bottle down his throat and swallowed the pills without biting.
The drop of blood essence had also realized that something was off. It split in two, turning into two blood-red horns protruding from Jun Yichen’s forehead.
Jun Yichen sat down cross-legged. The force in his abdomen started churning, and a golden-red light sped from his stomach in the direction of the two blood-red horns.
The edges of the horns shrank, and it ran in different directions trying to evade the attack.
The golden-red light swiftly chased after the blood-red horn on the left, swallowing it whole instantly.
The blood-red horn on the right suddenly exploded. Iit even burst through Jun Yichen’s neck and flew out.
Jun Yichen calmly opened his mouth. His golden, glittering Life’s Origin Parasite looked menacing as it flew out. With a stretch of its mouth, it swallowed the blood essence as it ran away.
Jun Yichen’s Life’s Origin Parasite had changed a lot.
Its head had already become human-like, and it had features resembling Jun Yichen’s cocky and proud expression.
Besides the head, it had also formed two thin arms. The rest of it was still worm-like.
It flew back to Jun Yichen’s head, then landed and griped, “Are there any more of the Cherry Pills? Give me some more.”
Jun Yichen raised his palm, poured out two Cherry Pills, and placed them in his mouth.
The Life’s Origin Parasite screamed. With a whoosh, it turned into a golden light and burrowed back into Jun Yichen’s mouth.
“You’ve succeeded?” Ye Jiuge asked.
“Yeah!” Jun Yichen nodded. He took out a red cloth package from his chest and threw it at Ye Jiuge.
After receiving Ye Jiuge’s help, he felt very grateful. But his awkward personality made him unable to express gratitude directly. He could only express his thanks through his actions.
Zi Shang snagged the cloth package from mid-air and opened it. It was half of the treasure map.
“At least you know what you have to do, brat.” Ye Jiuge did not stand on ceremony and stowed the treasure map.
“I still have to solidify my cultivation. I’ll leave Luo Tian in your care.” Jun Yichen was worse than Ye Jiuge when it came to immodesty. After throwing Luo Tian at Ye Jiuge, he headed for his room to continue cultivating.
“Wait a moment! Have you settled Dongfang Que’s issue for me?” Ye Jiuge shouted after him.
“Dongfang Que’s poison has been eliminated,” Jun Yichen replied without turning his head, then slammed the door shut.
Ye Jiuge could not abandon him at such a time. She could only suck it up and protect him from outside the door.
“Have a seat.” Zi Shang waved a hand, and two chairs appeared in front of them.
Ye Jiuge sat next to Zi Shang, then asked, “Say, if we openly strike Bloodcloud Peak, what do you think the Bloodthirsty Patriarch will do when he finds out?”
Zi Shang was silent for a moment, then answered, “Most likely, he will think about how to use the opportunity to eat more people!”
“Do you think he’s treating us like cabbage?” Ye Jiuge did not believe that the Bloodthirsty Patriarch was so powerful.
If he were that powerful, he would have become a god long ago. Why would he hole up at Bloodcloud Peak?
“If it were me, that was what I would have done,” Zi Shang stated, matter-of-fact.
“I’m not asking about you. I’m asking about the Bloodthirsty Patriarch.” Ye Jiuge didn’t know what to say to Zi Shang.
“I’m not the Bloodthirsty Patriarch. If you want to know, go ask him yourself,” Zi Shang refused to answer such a stupid question.
Meanwhile, at Bloodcloud Peak, the Bloodthirsty Patriarch was submerged in cultivation at the center of a large Blood Pond.
Liu Yunfei and Old Master Su’s corpses were submerged in two smaller Blood Ponds beside him.
Their bodies had already melted, leaving only two heads floating on the surface. It was a horrifying scene.
Soon, the two heads would also melt away and turn into two thick bloody lights that gathered in the middle where the Bloodthirsty Patriarch was.
The two bloody lights were the most critical part of the technique. The Bloodthirsty Patriarch calmed his mind and prepared to absorb them.
Suddenly, his heart contracted, and the spiritual channels in his body became blocked.
He had already absorbed half of the bloody lights, but the part that remained unabsorbed vanished instantly.
“Curses!” Bloodthirsty Patriarch’s technique had failed, and he was furious. His anger caused the Blood Pond to boil, and bubbles gurgled on the surface.
He had never imagined that, at this crucial point in his cultivation, his Life’s Origin Blood Essence would be wholly absorbed by someone else. Even the trap he’d set had been eliminated.
Shou Hou had been protecting the Bloodthirsty Patriarch nearby. When he heard the Patriarch’s scream of rage, his heart rang stopped for a moment.
Having protected the Bloodthirsty Patriarch for so many years, he had never once seen his cultivation being interrupted by anything.
“What’s the matter, Patriarch?” Shou Hou did not dare enter, so he could only call out worriedly from outside.
“I’m fine!” Bloodthirsty Patriarch’s chest heaved with anger, but he quickly brought his temper under control.
The Bloodthirsty Sect was not a place for the weak. The disciples beneath him were cunning wolves, and it would be dangerous if he showed even a hint of weakness.
Now that a situation had cropped up during his cultivation, he had to make sure this news did not reach them.
The Bloodthirsty Patriarch suddenly thought about the plan he had been hatching for a long while.
Initially, he had thought that sending Liu Yunfei and Xiong Yunhu out together would ensure that Dongfang Yao could be successfully brought to him to be used as an ingredient. Never could he have imagined that the plan would fail so spectacularly—he’d even lost his Life’s Origin Blood Essence.
Although Su Junqing had brought back the bodies of Liu Yunfei and his grandfather, it could not make up for his losses.
