Chapter 470: Saving Ye Yu
Zi Shang and Yun Jiuge left the Divine Temple and hurried down the passageway.
The devouring gray silk threads lurched and swayed in the air menacingly with an urge to rush toward the two of them.
Feifei automatically flew back into the Spiritual Beast Bag and did not dare to come out.
Yun Jiuge had to increase the strength of her Holy Power so that she and Zi Shang could escape the passageway safely.
The gray silk threads gushed out of the passageway and immediately submerged the entire space.
“Yin Shili has already left this place and is waiting for us outside,” Zi Shang said. He did a Cognitive sweep and found that that Yin Shili was already outside the valley.
He pulled Yun Jiuge up into the air, stepped on a demon cloud formed out of condensed Demon Qi and flew out of the cave.
“Caw caw caw!” A’dai immediately flew over.
Yun Jiuge and Zi Shang landed on its muscular back. In midair, they looked down and saw that gray Yin Qi had flooded the whole valley. The land became barren with no sign of life anywhere.
“Miss Yun, are you okay!” Wu Lan greeted from afar while riding on Da Shun.
There was also a black eagle beside her, carrying a pale and unconscious Yin Shili.
“We’re fine,” Yun Jiuge said and instructed A’dai to fly over. Using her Cognitive power to check Yin Shili again, she was relieved to find that he was in a coma only because of exhaustion.
“This must be your senior from the Yin Corpse Sect. Pardon us please, Da Shun had abit of a shock earlier on. When we flew over here again, we saw him lying near the valley,” Wu Lan said, feeling a little guilty.
Da Shun had run away too quickly earlier, and she had to coax it for a long time before it agreed to fly back.
When he saw this Golden Core Cultivator senior, Da Shun agreed to save him but did not allow Wu Lan to go to the valley.
Since Da Shun had the ability to get through precarious situations, she listened to it and just waited in the vicinity.
“That’s right, this is our senior from the Yin Corpse Sect. It was fortunate that you did not enter the valley,” Yun Jiuge remarked.
“The valley is not only covered by the cursing power, but also a kind of devouring power. It likely came from Empress Mountain!” Yun Jiuge said. She didn’t want to tell Wu Lan that there was a passageway in the valley that led to Empress Temple.
“How could this be?” Wu Lan exclaimed, her face pale. The cursing power had already wiped out the entire army of the Five Poison Sect. Now, there was another devouring power as well. Weren’t they all doomed then?
“If you don’t believe me, you can send someone to check,” replied Yun Jiuge.
“Of course I believe Miss Yun,” Wu Lan said. Looking at the valley filled with dense gray Qi, she did not dare to go investigate.
“Miss Wu Lan, Senior Yin is likely cursed. May I send him to your Ice Stone Palace for inspection?” Yun Jiuge asked.
“Of course,” Wu Lan replied. After Wu Lan took Yun Jiuge back to the encampment, they headed directly to the Ice Stone Palace.
“Miss Wu Lan, you can just wait outside,” Yun Jiuge said. She brought Yin Shili to the third floor.
“I have experience with sealing curses. Why not let me stay here to help you?” Wu Lan asked. She didn’t want to leave as she instinctively felt that Yun Jiuge was hiding something from her.
“There’s no need to, I can manage this. You’d better go deal with the Yin Qi valley. Hurry up and don’t let anyone get close to it. The monsters nearby must also be removed, otherwise, the more energy they devour, the faster it will diffuse. Corpse poison has a certain isolating function, while other poisons may also have the same effect. You’ll need to verify this by yourself,” Yun Jiuge said solemnly.
“Okay, I’ll leave. If you need me here, please let me know,” Wu Lan said. She thought for a while and felt that Yin Qi valley was a more serious issue.
If the devouring power really spread and devoured the entire Shiwan Grand Mountain, they would lose their secure settlement.
“Rest assured, we’re allies now. If I don’t call on you, who else can I call on?” Yun Jiuge said confidently.
Wu Lan reluctantly walked away, leaving Wu Ya and a group of religious followers outside to guard the building.
“Why are you so guarded against her?” asked Yin Shili. He had just opened his eyes and sat up.
“We must always be on our guard. There’re a lot of things that Wu Lan hasn’t told us. Of course, we can’t be entirely open with her either,” Yun Jiuge explained. She had long realized that Yin Shili was pretending to be unconscious.
“That’s true,” Yin Shili said in agreement. He looked at Ye Yunzhi, who was guarding Ye Yu’s coffin. Stroking his chin, he said, “This Yin Corpse looks a bit familiar, like the one called Su Junqing.”
“You can tell that even when she’s become like this?” Yun Jiuge asked in shock. Even her brother Ye Yu could not recognize her ghostly appearance.
“When we look at Yin Corpses, we don’t look at the appearance. I’ve seen her Yin Spiritual Body before in the Yin Corpse Sect. Just so you know, I’m also aware of Liu Tian’er’s Nine Purgatories Body,” Yin Shili said with a smile. If it weren’t for the Liu Sisters’ close relationship with Yun Jiuge, he would have taken them away long ago.
After all, the Nine Purgatories Body was really rare, and he had a Cultivation Technique that would allow the twin sisters to cultivate dually.
“Indeed, Sect Leader is wise. Could I trouble Sect Leader to go to the second floor to wait for me? After I’m done, I’ll go look for you,” Yun Jiuge said with a smile.
“You’re guarding against me too?” Yin Shili asked, stunned.
“Of course,” Yun Jiuge replied flatly. Yin Shili could not know that she was going to use Holy Power to get rid of the cursing power on Ye Yu.
“Okay then!” Yin Shili said. Yun Jiuge was someone he respected, so he didn’t want to disobey her request. He obediently walked to the second floor.
“Zi Shang, help me set up a Spell Barrier,” Yun Jiuge said. She was still a little worried.
“I’ve already done it,” Zi Shang replied, appearing with residual Demonic Power still flowing in his hand.
On the door behind him, circles of runes condensed into chains and thoroughly covered the entire third floor.
“Then let’s start treating Ye Yu now!” Yun Jiuge instructed. She walked up to the coffin and saw that the cursing power had started moving up Ye Yu’s leg.
Ye Yunzhi’s cold Yin Qi could only freeze but not eliminate it. Even maintaining the current state now was very difficult.
“Let’s start!” Zi Shang said. He hovered his palm on Ye Yu’s body, and a soft cloud lifted his body up until it floated in mid-air.
Ye Yunzhi was restless and wanted to stop them.
“We’re saving your brother now. If you want him to live, go guard the door. No matter what happens, don’t become agitated,” Yun Jiuge emphasized to Ye Yunzhi.
Yun Jiuge was someone whom Ye Yunzhi had entrusted her life with in the past. She naturally believed her. She silently walked to the door to guard it.
It was only then did Yun Jiuge calm down and open her Spiritual Eye to observe Ye Yu’s physical condition. After determining that the cursing power was concentrated in his thigh and downwards, she took out the Lightning Fire Needle and inserted it into his acupuncture points.
