Chapter 259: The Jade Spiritual Pill’s Might
“Give his ashes to your sister!” Ye Jiuge believed that Shou Hou would have wanted that.
Ye Yu nodded in silence. He then dowsed Shou Hou’s corpse with kerosene and lit a fire.
A blaze soon engulfed the body. Before long, there was nothing left but ashes.
Ye Yu gingerly stored Shou Hou’s ashes in a container and returned to Ye Jiuge’s side.
At that moment, Baili Moyun, Gong Honglei and the rest of the spiritual practitioners safely made their way onto Bloodcloud Peak with Luo Tian’s help.
It took Gong Honglei a while to settle. When he did, he told Ye Jiuge in a frantic voice, “Miss, my uncle has been captured. We need to save him now!”
“Don’t worry. We’ll save Great Master Gong.” Ye Jiuge nodded before leading the team to Bloodcloud Peak.
Meanwhile, in the main hall at Bloodcloud Peak, Si Youyue looked at the black box curiously and asked, “Is this the spiritual tool with the ability to influence the protective formation?” She slid her delicate white fingers across the box’s wooden surface. “What’s inside?”
“I’m not sure. We did not have a chance to open it on our way here.” Wang Haoqiang shook his head.
“Ye Jiuge said that the spiritual tool has immense power. Apparently, it requires a person to cast a protective spell over it from the side while someone else opens the box. We did not dare to touch it this entire time,” Lin Yanxi added, standing to the side.
“In that case, can I trouble the Patriarch to cast a protective spell over me while I take a look inside?” Si Youyue wanted to gift the spiritual tool to Elder Qiu Sen, but she had to know what it was first.
“Sure. Please, don’t worry, I’ll do all that I can to protect you from harm.” The Bloodthirsty Patriarch was also dying to know what was inside the box.
Neither Lin Yanxi nor Wang Haoqiang had what it took to cast a protective spell for Si Youyue. All they could do was stand aside and watch.
Si Youyue crossed her legs and sat on the floor. A faint reddish light enveloped her silky white hand as she cautiously peeled away the yellow tape pasted over the black box.
The box made a clattering sound as it opened.
Si Youyue peered in and noticed a pearl. Its exterior was slightly black, but the interior was the color of jade. The pearl gave off a faint aroma.
“What is this?” Si Youyue held up the pearl curiously. She brought it closer to her eyes to take a better look.
The black-green pearl suddenly exploded into smithereens right before her eyes.
Within seconds, dark green smoke rushed out and engulfed the Blood Cave.
Lin Yanxi collapsed to the ground the moment she got a whiff of the green smoke. Countless bloody blisters formed over her once beautiful face, making her look as frightening as a toad.
Wang Haoqiang, on the other hand, suffered from excruciating pain all over his body. His stomach twisted in agony, and he began vomiting black blood. Not only that, but blood also began seeping through the seven apertures in his head.
“This is the Jade Spiritual Pill. We’ve been had!” The Bloodthirsty Patriarch was able to discern the scent’s source at once.
The Jade Spiritual Pill was a top-grade medicinal pill capable of getting rid of toxins in the blood and maintaining beauty.
If an average person smelled the Jade Spiritual Pill’s strong fragrance, they felt wholly refreshed and looked more youthful.
However, things were vastly different for members of the Bloodthirsty Sect. They drew on their blood for power, and the Jade Spiritual Pill was a lethal poison for them.
To manipulate their blood, the Bloodthirsty Sect’s members congealed their blood into blood essences. They would essentially be stripped of all their power if the Jade Spiritual Pill eliminated the blood essences from their bodies.
“You pieces of trash! You didn’t realize that they were using you!” Si Youyue lashed out angrily.
Si Youyue primarily practiced necromancy, which was why she was not profoundly affected by the Jade Spiritual Pill.
However, she still ended up losing quite a bit of her powers because she practiced the Blood Refinement Technique as a way of complementing her existing skills.
“There’s no use in complaining now. We have to reach the Blood Pond straightaway. We’ll be able to minimize the pill’s damage if we can quickly replenish our blood.” The Bloodthirsty Patriarch was in a worse state than Si Youyue.
Raven black blood oozed out of his skin as the Jade Spiritual Pill’s effects continued to flush out his blood essences.
Even if he could replenish them, he would still end up losing quite a bit of his powers. They would not be coming back anytime soon.
Si Youyue was about to agree to the Bloodthirsty Patriarch’s proposition when she heard the ear-splitting sound of an ongoing battle mixed with the cries of the Bloodthirsty Sect’s disciples.
“This is bad! We are under attack! It’s the Spiritual Practitioner Alliance!”
“What’s going on?” Si Youyue glowered at the Bloodthirsty Patriarch. Didn’t he say that the protective formation could not be destroyed?
“Now’s not the time to care about that. Hurry up and summon the Demonic Corpse!” commanded the Bloodthirsty Patriarch with an ashen face.
Bad things truly come in succession! He had not expected the Spiritual Practitioner Alliance to destroy the protective formation at a time like this.
Si Youyue fished out the amulet she used to control the Demonic Corpse, but she quickly realized that it was shrouded in black smoke. The smoke’s presence was a sign that the Demonic Corpse was currently engaged in a fight.
Needless to say, the Demonic Corpse was battling Ye Zi.
She would only make the situation worse if she were to summon the Demonic Corpse now.
D*mn it! Initially, she’d wanted to make use of the Bloodthirsty Patriarch to finish off the Spiritual Practitioner Alliance, but it seemed like her plan to kill two birds with one stone had gone astray.
She had not expected the Bloodthirsty Patriarch to be so useless. He had actually allowed the Spiritual Practitioner Alliance to gain entry to this place!
It looks like a change of plans is needed, she thought to herself.
Si Youyue said without hesitation, “Let’s retreat for now. We’ll see how things unfold from here on out.”
Then, she fled from the scene at breakneck speed.
That crafty little b*tch! The Bloodthirsty Patriarch swore inwardly as he set off in the direction of the Blood Pond.
“Patriarch! Please save me!” Wang Haoqiang, who was drenched in blood, pleaded as he reached out and grabbed the Bloodthirsty Patriarch’s ankle.
“Get lost!” The Bloodthirsty Patriarch was disgusted and kicked his chest.
Wang Haoqiang’s insides had been damaged by smoke earlier, and he was on the brink of death. The kick from the Bloodthirsty Patriarch was the finishing blow needed to end his life.
He collapsed to the ground with his eyes wide open. He looked like someone who had died with a grudge.
Lin Yanxi trembled in fear and did not dare breathe.
The Bloodthirsty Patriarch had neither the time nor the energy to bother with her. He turned around and raced toward the Blood Pond.
“Kill all of them!”
The Bloodthirsty Sect had been turned upside down. There was chaos everywhere.
Ye Jiuge led Baili Moyun and the rest of the spiritual practitioners on a rampage.
The Bloodthirsty Sect’s disciples were caught off guard, and several of them were killed by Ye Jiuge and her team in the chaos.
However, the Bloodthirsty Sect’s disciples were not idiots. The ones who managed to survive the initial onslaught immediately fled into the inner regions of Bloodcloud Peak. They made full of use of the maze-like structure and narrow passageways to carry out their counterattacks.
A thick blood fog obscured the area. The Bloodthirsty Sect launched a frenzied attack on Ye Jiuge and the rest using the blood fog’s cover.
Rays of bloody spiritual light shot out from all directions.
Extremely thin poison, paralysis, and blood needles were hidden within the bloody spiritual light. These needles were incredibly difficult to notice and defend against.
Baili Moyun stood at the front and waved his Dragonslayer Blade. The light from his sword was able to deflect most of the bloody spiritual light.
Nangong Li assisted him from the side. His Magic Talismans helped to defend against the Bloodthirsty Sect’s attacks, and they let out all kinds of explosive sounds in the process.
Gong Honglei was positioned at the rear. His job was to make sure that no one attacked them from behind.
Sadly, their efforts were not enough to prevent several spiritual practitioners from being injured.
Su Xun’er was hit by a paralysis needle during the fight, and half of her body became paralyzed. She had to be supported by another person for the remainder of the battle.
Xia Chenxi, on the other hand, was hit by a blood needle, and she acquired a scar on her face as a result. There was not even time for her to apply ointment to her face.
Sun Shufeng used too much of his spiritual power and was quickly drained of all his energy. He collapsed to the ground and began taking one Spiritual Revitalization Pill after another to regain his spiritual power.
“Miss, I don’t think we can keep this up for long!” Baili Moyun yelled from the front. He could not hold on much longer.
“Luo Tian, where’s your Little Master?” Ye Jiuge asked. They desperately needed Jun Yichen’s help right now.
Luo Tian did not answer, but he glanced toward a corner behind him.
Ye Jiuge instantly understood his meaning. She took a few steps toward the wall behind Luo Tian and said, “Little Mute, come out and help us now.”
