Due to poison, his entire body was currently feeling numb while he was experiencing pain that felt as though insects were biting him, and the antidote he used did not seem to be effective. He felt very frustrated and had no thoughts of drinking water, yet he was unable to reject the flask of water offered by Huan Qing Yan.
After receiving it, “Thanks.”
He symbolically took a sip and discovered that it has an extremely refreshing taste, so he uncontrollably started to drink a few more mouthfuls.
The numb feeling throughout his body have also slowly subsided as well.
Nan Gong Bei Cheng was having some difficulty just simply lifting his head earlier on, but now he felt much better. He glanced at Huan Qing Yan and saw her smiling yet concerned face,and he was slightly touched.
“I… did you knew what poison I got?”
“Ah, I did not know! Are you poisoned?” Huan Qing Yan acted silly, however, seeing that the water was effective she felt happy.
Nan Gong Bei Cheng gave a look as though he was looking at an idiot, but since she was not willing to say then he shall not ask anymore.
He gulped down a few more mouthful of water and felt the numbing poison almost completely neutralized so he passed the flask back to Huan Qing Yan. This was a good item, he did not want to take advantage her, so he did not drink much.
Huan Qing Yan did not take it back and smiled, “It is only a flask of water, there is no need to return, I have some still.”
Seeing that she was not acting and was being frank, Nan Gong Bei Cheng kept it. “Thanks.”
“No need for the politeness, you have helped me many times in the past and I have never been able to repay my gratitude.”
Nan Gong Bei Cheng gave a mocking laugh, “Is this flask of water your way of repaying your gratitude? I heard of a phrase; the gratitude of a drop of water, repaid with a gushing fountain. This flask, seems a bit too little?”
Huan Qing Yan’s smile froze, “Eh, how about slowly repaying, or I can give you more water?”
Nan Gong Bei Cheng conditioned his body so when he could move, he jumped to the tree branch in a whoosh and sat beside Huan Qing Yan.
Huan Qing Yan unconsciously backed away.
Nan Gong Bei Cheng got even closer, “The gratitude of a drop of water, repaid with a gushing fountain. However, the gratitude of saving a life, is normally repaid by devoting one’s life…”
His eagle eyes were filled with a domineering aggressiveness.
Huan Qing Yan retreated again, until she was nearly at the tip of the tree branch. The thin branch seems to be unable to handle her weight as it was shaking, “Nan Gong Bei Cheng, you are overthinking it.”
Nan Gong Bei Cheng replied, “Yes, I overthink, I overthink too much.”
If not for the gratitude that he had saved her before, Huan Qing Yan would have thrown a kick directly at Nan Gong Bei Cheng.
The current Nan Gong Bei Cheng had not caught up to her cultivation yet; he did not even breakthrough to become a True Spirit Master yet.
After Nan Gong Bei Cheng self-deprecated, he retreated and went down the tree, as though he would be hurt just by being close to Huan Qing Yan.
He sat below the tree and no longer spoke, instead he chose to start meditation.
Huan Qing Yan returned to her original position on the tree but she really wanted to ask, since your poison was cured, shouldn’t you continue walking? Yet she was afraid it could cause him to be unhappy.
With that, the two people maintained their positions, one on the tree while the other at the bottom. Huan Qing Yan also continued to practice her Clear Sight Spell.
Not long after, Huan Qing Yan felt a great surge of spirit energy, and it was heading towards them!
Huan Qing Yan immediately went on alert, what was happening?
Why was there so much spirit energy suddenly?
The spirit energy within the Blood Moon Hidden Realm was exceptionally rich, it was much thicker and purer than within the Holy City of Spirit Treasure Continent…
However, it would not suddenly turn into this situation as well.
She looked down and saw a mist circling above Nan Gong Bei Cheng’s head, it felt as though he has entered a deep state of meditation and was about to have a breakthrough?
