The Ink Guard took a step forward and fixedly stared at the Shadow Man, “Young Mistress, you should leave first, I will hold him back.”
The Shadow Man sneered, “Do you think both of you will be able to leave?”
After he spoke, he stretched out his hand and a sharp sword appeared in his hands; with a wave of his hand a heavy pressure pressed down on the Ink Guard. At the same time, another shadow headed towards Huan Qing Yan.
The Ink Guard had released his spirit treasure, a Forest Bag Bear.
The Forest Bag Bear is a forest animal and not large in size, the thing it liked to do the most was to hang on a tree branch and swing. From afar, it has the look of a bag hanging on a tree and thus the name.
For cultivators of the same rank, it is a type of spirit treasure that is harder to deal with because of its agile movements and was also a very capable meat shield during crucial times.
However, the current situation was one of absolute strength suppression; there were no advantages for it. Within a few seconds, the Ink Guard felt greatly pressured.
On the other side, Huan Qing Yan’s Flying Pig appeared, and without hesitation charged towards the black shadow.
“Dong!” the two parties pulled apart and each retreated several steps.
“Eh?” the Shadow Man released a startled cry.
His Fox Monkey may not specialize in strength, but Huan Qing Yan was only a Mid-Stage True Spirit Master whose spirit treasure was able to face it equally, hence he was very surprised.
However, that was all it could do as well.
The Shadow Man released a cold snort, a sword beam appeared and envelop Huan Qing Yan and her spirit treasure within.
While his Fox Monkey was jumping around within, randomly ambushing them, the main target was Huan Qing Yan.
This was also the Shadow Man’s mission. As for the Ink Guard, it was not of importance.
Fortunately, Huan Qing Yan was already very proficient with Phantom Shifting Steps, plus she was wearing the Golden Silk Soft Armor, the occasional shockwave was not much of a problem.
However, it was also very obvious that it cannot be a long-term plan.
After some while, Huan Qing Yan started panting and was covered in sweat. After being swept by the shockwave several times, the situation was turning dangerous…
Ji Mo Ya came to the small island that floated up.
There was no one on the island, not even a spell formation or anything similar. Only several large crabs moving here and there…
Ji Mo Ya released his divine sense and searched.
Within a sealed mountain cave, there was an unconscious young lady, quietly curled up within it.
It was Mu Rong Xin Nuo.
Ji Mo Ya reached there in a few steps before observing his surroundings another time. There was truly no one around, no one was laying an ambush.
He unlocked Mu Rong Xin Nuo’s acupoints and she slowly woke up.
When she saw Ji Mo Ya, she displayed an expression as though she was dreaming, “Cousin? Is that you? No, this might be a dream! Cousin, why have you appeared here, where are we?”
She looked at her surroundings before she returned her gaze onto Ji Mo Ya.
Her gaze was longing, “Cousin, I have not dreamt of you for a long time already. You are so vicious, even in my dream, you still did not come… Cousin, Xin Nuo knew that you are having a hard time recently, you have suffered many hardships for Lady Huan. Xin Nuo visited this time and hope that she can take a small step back and ask her to not cause you to make things difficult for you, I did not have other intentions… Cousin, Xin Nuo misses you every day…”
Ji Mo Ya instructed his Dragon Spirit Treasure to summon a rain onto Mu Rong Xin Nuo, pulling her out of her delusions, waking her up completely.
Mu Rong Xin Nuo’s words did indeed managed to touch him, he did not expect that her feelings for him had reached to such an extent. From the looks of it, he must distance himself from her as he did not want her to waste her time.
