Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 503
Chapter 503: – Life“Senior Brother Chen, you can’t do it?” Tianming asked .
“That’s not it . I’m just seeking your opinion . Tianming, I’m not very good at talking, but I really admire you . Not only for your talent, but other aspects as well,” Chen Jinghong said seriously . His gaze had changed when he looked at Tianming; there was deep admiration in his eyes .
“I’m just lucky, not to mention that I had everyone’s help . ” Tianming smiled . He turned to look at Meng Qingqing, whose face was pale . She didn’t dare to raise her head at all .
“Senior Brother Chen, what do you plan to do with her?” Tianming asked .
“The Dazzling Pavilion doesn’t belong to the Ancient Theocrats, at least on the surface . But in my opinion, they’re together with them . With something this big happening in the Divine Tomb, we can’t let anyone who knows the truth leave this place alive,” said Chen Jinghong .
“Okay . Then let’s do it . ” Tianming looked at Meng Qingqing, but she didn’t have any response . Seeing that, Tianming asked, “You’re not afraid of death?”
“I am . But that’s also part of life . ” Meng Qingqing looked at Dongyang Fengchen far away and asked, “What are you guys going to do with him?”
“Make sure that he cries for his life,” replied Tianming .
“Then kill me first . I don’t want to watch . Life is just a dream, and it will end one day . Death is the same, early or late . It’s meaningless to seek a few more years of life . This fate and this life, it’s fine giving it up,” replied Meng Qingqing .
“That’s because you were born in the vortex of evil . So there’s no meaning in your life . On the other hand, there’s meaning in my life,” said Tianming .
Listening to his words, Meng Qingqing was briefly stunned, then smiled bitterly .
“Let’s send her on her way,” Tianming said to Chen Jinghong . He turned around and threw out the Three-Thousand Starfield, binding Dongyang Fengchen . When he pulled back, he found out that Dongyang Fengchen’s face was swollen and his legs covered in blood . It seemed that Bai Xiaozhu and the rest had been ‘serving’ him well .
“Let’s go . ” Tianming dragged Dongyang Fengchen behind him and walked to the only exit .
“You’re not going to let us see it?” Bai Xiaozhu asked .
“You can, but I’m just worried that you might be traumatized by meat for the rest of your life . ” Tianming turned back and smiled . His words sent a chill down Bai Xiaozhu’s spine .
“Is it necessary? He’s already in this state . ” Meng Qingqing collapsed in Chen Jinghong’s hands .
“Yes . Since I’ve said it, I will keep up to my own words . He might seem pitiful now, but who would pity me if I lost instead? He thinks he can do whatever he wants because he’s a villain? Is it that hard to be a devil?” Tianming said while dragging Dongyang Fengchen into the corner .
Shortly after, screams echoed out from that direction . When Tianming returned, Bai Xiaozhu asked in a speechless tone, “What did you do to him to make him scream so badly?”
“Well, since he said he doesn’t know how to write the word ‘death,’ I merely taught it to him . He’s pretty smart, and he finally learned it before dying,” replied Tianming .
When everyone heard what Tianming said, they took in a cold breath .
Tianming then went to look for ‘Jiang Yanwu,’ which ended up in failure . That fellow clearly hates Dongyang Fengchen, since he ran . But given the Demon City’s massive size, how am I going to find him?
He didn’t dare to be too far away from Feiling . If he couldn’t see her around, he would start feeling uneasy . This battle was dangerous . Even now, he still had wounds left on his body from the Nineshades Poison .
Tianming stood on the altar, looking at the woman lying in the crystal coffin . Chen Jinghong and the other three were below the altar . They didn’t dare to ask much when they saw the grave expression on Tianming’s face .
“It’s almost been an hour since Feng’s soul left his body . ” Tianming was a little worried, but there weren’t any dangers in the surroundings . The Soulfiend spat out Ye Lingfeng’s body, allowing Tianming to move it beside the coffin . That way, Ye Lingfeng could return to it when he came out .
“Can the coffin be opened when Ling’er awakens? This crystal coffin seems to be part of the Demon City . ”
“It should be possible . If it succeeds, she’ll be a fusion between an innate and acquired godchild . She should be able to do whatever ‘that’ existence can do,” said Tianming .
“I wonder how she’ll turn out . Who knows, she might even be too high up for you to reach . ” Ying Huo smiled .
There’s a possibility that she might possess a divine physique . A god physique? Tianming pondered .
As time slowly passed, Tianming noticed that Ye Lingfeng’s body had started turning purple . Upon seeing this, he couldn’t help feeling nervous . He wanted Feiling to live, but at the same time, he didn’t wish to see it at the expense of Ye Lingfeng’s life .
Suddenly, the woman in the coffin opened her eyes . Judging from her gaze, she was still the Feiling he knew . But there were some changes to her temperament . She felt more ethereal, like a deity .
“Big brother!” She immediately started tearing up as she came out of the coffin .
Seeing Feiling standing before him alive and well, Tianming’s eyes started turning red . Her tears contained passion, and the joy of having escaped death—she was still the same person Tianming knew .
“Feng, we’re out!” Feiling called out . Shortly after, a white mist rose from her head, took on a humanoid form, and entered Ye Lingfeng’s body .
When Ye Lingfeng opened his eyes, he started coughing and moved his limbs . The purple shade on his body also began receding . However, his expression was somewhat wilted and he was having a hard time opening his eyelids .
“Big brother Tianming, I’m fine . You don’t have to worry about me . I just need to rest for a few days,” he said in a weak voice .
“Okay . ” Tianming nodded heavily . At this moment, all the worries in his heart had finally dissipated .
After Ye Lingfeng came out, the Soulfiend climbed onto the altar and grabbed him . He managed to force a smile before he fainted . The Soulfiend whimpered softly and held on to him as if it was holding onto a rare treasure . The relationship it shared with Ye Lingfeng wasn’t like Tianming’s relationship with his lifebound beasts . They had the relationship of a master and servant .
At this moment, Tianming and Feiling were the only ones left on the altar . Feiling suddenly burst into tears and opened her arms . “Big brother!”
“It’s fine . It’s all good now!” Tianming hugged Feiling tightly . They could hear each other’s heartbeat . Even Tianming’s speech had become incoherent from the happiness he felt .
Now that Feiling was in Tianming’s embrace, she finally couldn’t hold back anymore and started crying . She was a mortal, regardless of the resilience she had shown when fighting with the innate godchild’s soul . Now that everything had come to an end, her heart was fragile before her beloved one .
“It’s fine now, don’t cry . ” Tianming patted Feiling’s back .
“It’s fine . I’m just happy,” Feiling choked on her tears .
Tianming wanted to give her another promise, such as protecting her from any danger . But nothing came out of his mouth . After all, who could have complete control over their lives? What Feiling needed was support and a hug .
When Feiling’s tears wet his clothes, he could feel her soul . She was a living person, with flesh and blood . Her tenacity and strong love was the reason why she had survived .
As they hugged, they were also marking each other . The love between youngsters might be innocent, but there was nothing more beautiful than it . Tianming wasn’t joking when he said that he was willing to die for her . He wasn’t afraid of others calling him a fool; you only live once, and no one was perfect . He just wanted to do whatever he wants, and kill anyone who tries to take her away from him .
Who cared about that god’s hundred years of hard work? Tianming only cared about this girl who was currently in his embrace .
After Feiling was done crying, she raised her head and bit her lips . “Big brother, are you going to cry too?”
“What nonsense are you talking about? I’m just showing you my new technique, the Golden Dazzle Eyes . What do you think of it? Isn’t it cool?” Tianming coughed to hide his awkwardness .
“I saw it: one black and one golden . Big brother, you look coquettish,” Feiling laughed . Her response made Tianming speechless . Ying Huo had taught Feiling all the wrong things .
“Say that again?” Tianming raged .
“You’re . . . mmmmmmh!” Tianming interrupted Feiling with a kiss . Their tongues tangled together for a long time . It was a beautiful scene on the altar . At that moment, they were the manifestation of passion and youth .
“Holy shit!” Bai Xiaozhu covered his eyes with one hand and covered Situ Yiyi’s face with another .
“Get lost! They’re so touching . ” Situ Yiyi started crying as well .
“Do you know what happened?” Bai Xiaozhu asked in shock .
“I don’t,” said Situ Yiyi .
“Then what the hell are you so touched about!” Bai Xiaozhu rebuked .
“Tianming is really romantic . I’m so touched! I can’t stand it anymore, I want a divorce!” Situ Yiyi continued to cry
“What’s it got to do with you?! You want a divorce again?!” Bai Xiaozhu was speechless at Situ Yiyi’s impulsive decision .
“That’s because you’re not romantic at all! Do you remember what you gave me for our anniversary?!” Situ Yiyi rebuked .
“Didn’t I give you a luminous comb? It’s even engraved with ‘Love from Zhu . ’ I personally engraved it myself! That’s not romantic enough for you?” Bai Xiaozhu was puzzled .
“Get lost!” As a result, Bai Xiaozhu and Situ Yiyi started fighting .
“It’s nice to be single!” Chen Jinghong immediately distanced himself from the squabbling pair .
Suddenly, the Demon City started shrinking and all of them were thrown out of the city . They landed in a dark and spacious underground space . This place initially stood below the Demon City, but because the Demon City had shrunk in size, a large space was naturally opened up .
All of them were dumbfounded, watching the still-shrinking Demon City above their heads . In the end, the massive city had already shrunk down to palm size before falling into Feiling’s hand . But that wasn’t the end of it . The next second, the Demon City merged into her forehead, becoming a black dot between her brows .
When Tianming raised his head, he saw the Abyssal Battlefield above his head . Due to the disappearance of the Demon City, the second Divine Capital started collapsing .
