Mu Yao watched as the man took shallow breaths. She then picked up her clothes and turned around, lifting them up in a beautiful arc.
The next moment, the woman was dressed neatly, her mind full of what they had just done.
She subconsciously blushed yet again.
A hint of reluctance and guilt flashed across her eyes as images flashed through her mind.
Throughout the duration of the Dual Cultivation, Mu Yao had sensed the power from the man’s elixir.
And the moment they had become one, the golden light had appeared, lighting the man’s entire body up and throwing Mu Yao several meters away. Then, the man started shouting as if he was possessed by a ghost.
Immediately after, a yellow light floated out of nowhere, before strands of yellow light entered the man’s body. The man closed his eyes and endured the pain of spiritual powers entering his body.
Then, Mu Yao saw the man open his mouth slightly, allowing a golden spherical elixir to float out of his mouth.
In that instant, Mu Yao understood why the man had such a strong force of resistance around him. It was all thanks to this elixir!
In that instant, Mu Yao recalled how the Blood Pupil seemed to have called the man “Netherworld Demon Lord” when it was fighting against the man.
From Mu Yao’s memories, she recalled that even the most powerful priest of Tianxiang might not have such a pure elemental elixir. The elixir was something that only priests, immortals, or demons possessed.
At that thought, Mu Yao dared not think any further.
All of a sudden, the man roared loudly and an invisible wave shot out from his body. The power of this wave was so great that it actually caused the entire cave to tremble in an instant.
Immediately, a loud tearing sound erupted from the rock wall above the cave.
Mu Yao looked up and her eyes narrowed.
There was now a crack running across the incomparably hard rock wall above her.
As long as Mu Yao wanted to, she could slice it open with her silver sword. She was confident of enlarging the crack and breaking out of the cave. But she didn’t do so right away.
‘You have so much power just by recovering your spiritual power. Xiaohuo, who exactly are you? Is this as far as our fate goes?’
Suddenly, the man fell heavily onto the ground with a loud bang after recovering his powers. He had fallen unconscious yet again!
Mu Yao knew that this was the best time for her to escape while she was still full of energy from his spiritual powers. Once Xiaohuo recovered his spiritual power, Mu Yao would be no match for him. What if Xiaohuo didn’t let her go or went back on his word? What would she do then?
After all, Xiaohuo was a one night stand, and a secret she couldn’t expose to the world. However, she could not help but miss the last moments of this life. She lay down beside the man and rested quietly for a while.
Once Mu Yao awoke again, she understood it would be too late if she didn’t leave immediately. She gritted her teeth and tightened her grip on the silver sword at her waist.
After taking one last look at the man, she turned around swiftly and drew her silver sword. With a loud bang, Mu Yao pierced through the peak.
A blinding ray of sunlight shone into the cave.
The moment Mu Yao jumped out of the cave, she breathed in the fresh air that she’d not tasted for ages. She did not look back this time.
What she did not realize was that the moment she broke out of the cave, the man had woken up. The man suddenly widened his deep eyes as he watched the woman leave.
As he recovered all his spiritual power and memories, he flared up.
Just as he was about to use his spiritual power to make the woman return, he realized that he could not control his spiritual power as he wished. He had to gather more energy than before in order to use his spiritual power.
There was only one reason for all of this: The woman had stolen his elixir while he wasn’t paying attention!
The Netherworld Demon Lord stood up slowly and glanced at the broken cave before laughing coldly. “Woman, you can have the elixir, but you and the child in your stomach must belong to me!”
Mu Yao yawned for some reason. Pinching her nose, she thought to herself, ‘Is someone cursing me?’
Just as Mu Yao had expected, it was a dense forest outside the cave. Unlike ordinary ones, Mu Yao could sense the power hidden in the trees and the air here. This was a place that was especially suitable for cultivating one’s body and mind.
Mu Yao jumped onto a tall tree branch and looked into the distance.
This forest was very large, so it would take some time to walk out of this place.
Suddenly, just as she was calculating how to get out of the forest quicker, arrows shot out from somewhere toward her.
Mu Yao swiftly turned around and dodged the attack. With an agile backflip, she hid somewhere to observe her surroundings. She lowered her gaze.
It seemed that Blood Pupil was right when he said that he would be back. His people had been lying in ambush outside the forest.
However, there was one thing that puzzled Mu Yao: Why were they lying in ambush instead of entering the cave?
Mu Yao shot a cold glance through the trees at the cave she had just escaped.
All of a sudden, there was a loud bang and a cloud of black smoke rose from the cave and soared into the sky.
Mu Yao tightened her grip on the silver sword at her waist and swallowed. A hint of panic flashed across her clear eyes.
Xiaohuo had escaped too.
She had to speed up her escape from this forest and find a place where she could rest and think about what to do next.
Suddenly, Mu Yao felt a sharp pain in her stomach. She looked down at her stomach and her eyes widened. She was at a loss for words!
Her stomach was getting bigger and bigger!
What was going on?!
At this moment, it wasn’t just the Blood Pupil’s men who were chasing her, but also the man who had recovered his spiritual power and was looking for his elixir.
At the same time, her stomach grew bigger and bigger, and even the thick foliage couldn’t hide her figure. She suddenly shot her head up and thought to herself, ‘This isn’t good!’
Hundreds of arrows were aimed at Mu Yao’s hiding place.
“Sir, she’s there!” The voices of the assassins came from behind.
As the group of people ran toward the tree, they gathered their energy and kicked the sturdy tree all at once, causing the tree to fall to the ground with a loud boom.
Yet, there was no sign of the woman behind the tree.
The leader shouted, “How is this possible? I saw her here just moments earlier!”
