Only until Zi Xi forced Bai Li Qing Yan into the Devil Path did he finally understood that the former had deceived him. She had no intention to return to the clan and repent, she was just here to take revenge!
Yet what can he do? Bai Li Ye Jun’s heart was split into two, his logical side was telling him that what was done was not right; he has let down the upbringing of the clan, he is a traitor!
However, his feelings destroyed logic, whenever he looked at Zi Xi, everything else no longer mattered. As long as Zi Xi wants to do it, he would do everything in his abilities to fulfill it for her, even if it meant traveling to hell!
Bai Li Zi Xi finally regained a little of her strength after some time and felt her heart skipped a beat when she noticed that Bai Li Ye Jun was displaying a struggled expression. The pair had been very close during the time they were escaping, she used these moments to covertly inject Devil Energy into Bai Li Ye Jun.
With Devil Energy corrupting him, he would naturally be infatuated with her and will listen to her.
She did not expect to discover that Bai Li Ye Jun was now showing signs of shaking away the shackles of infatuation.
Bai Li Zi Xi immediately injected the Devil Energy that she had just regained into Bai Li Ye Jun and it calmed him down.
He opened his eyes and looked at Bai Li Zi Xi with restored infatuation: “Zi Xi, we need to quickly leave. If Ji Mo Ya can locate us, it means that this place is no longer safe! His subordinates will likely arrive soon, we need to leave!”
Bai Li Zi Xi agreed, she had also thought about this point. However, her stamina has yet to recover and she did not have much Devil Energy as well, making it impossible for her to leave even if she wanted to.
Bai Li Zi Xi pondered for a moment before displaying a pained and decisive expression: “Brother Jun, I do not have enough stamina and is also suffering from internal injuries. I cannot move and I cannot hold you back, you should go alone! I will stay to stop the pursuers!”
Bai Li Ye Jun was greatly moved, he did not expect to Zi Xi feel so deeply for him, willing to sacrifice herself for him!
As a man, how could he allow the woman he loves to sacrifice herself for him?
He ignored the sharp pain from Ji Mo Ya’s palm strike, only feeling the sweetness in his heart as he replied: “Zi Xi, I will stay and attract their attention. They will not dare to do anything to me as I am still a member of the Bai Li Clan.”
Bai Li Zi Xi was waiting for him to say that. If it were normal times, she would have replied and drag the conversation longer to portray the façade of great affections before leaving unwillingly.
However, they were now in a critical situation where every second matter, it was unknown when would Ji Mo Ya’s Ink Guards arrive. She could not even handle a True Spirit Master in her current state and if it drags on, likely she would not be able to escape.
Her eyes turned red as she looked at Bai Li Ye Jun with a lovely and pitiful gaze: “Brother Jun, I understand. I will only be a bother for you if I remain and drag you down. If I leave, they will not make things difficult for you due to the blood of Bai Li running inside of you! Brother Jn, I will find a place to hide and leave markings for you to follow. Once you escape, you must come and find me! I will not leave until I see you!”
The words caused Bai Li Ye Jun’s heart to ache and turn soft; he looked at Bai Li Zi Xi, wanting to imprint this moment inside of him before waving his hand: “Go, quick! If I survive, I will certainly find you!”
Bai Li Zi Xi acted as though she did not understand the determined underlying tone used by Bai Li Ye Jun, she slowly turned and left the area.
Bai Li Ye Jun watched her departing back, she did not turn her head. When suddenly, the sweet taste of iron welled up in his mouth, causing his eyes to darken a lot more.
