Realms In The Firmament - Chapter 206
Chapter 206 - A Half Year Left To Live
He saw a gorgeous lady who was cold like ice and elegant like the moon standing in front of him.
Her eyes were sharp like two ice arrows shooting right on his eyes coldly.
Ye Xiao stretched his pupils in the eyes.
If he was right, this gorgeous lady was holding killing intent against him.
[Does she want to kill me?]
’’You. Are you Feng Zhi-Ling?’’ The lady in white had a clear and beautiful voice. Her tone was cold like ice, but it gave him a comfortable feeling.
’’I am.’’ Ye Xiao stared at her face for a long time.
The lady in white spoke blandly, ’’What are you looking at?’’
’’I am looking at you. I want to know what cultivation level you are at right now.’’ Ye Xiao smiled, ’’I need to confirm what level you are, so that I can reckon how long can you stay alive.’’
The lady in white heard about the words about life and death, yet her expression was still calm and cold. She just answered blandly, ’’Oh?’’
Ye Xiao nodded, ’’I know you are indifferent. Maybe you truly don't care. Your cultivation ability is far above the limit of this world indeed. You think I cannot recognize what level you are. And you think I am bragging.’’
The lady in white said, ’’Are you not?’’
Ye Xiao shook his head and said, ’’Of course not.’’
He smiled and said, ’’Normally, you should be right about this. However, I, Feng Zhi-Ling, am not a normal person. Girl, you look pale and you have long breaths. It seems everything is fine on you. Nothing bad with your body. You should be very healthy. But deep inside your eyes, there is a color of dark blue. Such blue has been gathering to your pupils. It must have turned into a circle now, right?’’
The lady nodded in agreement
’’Ordinary people cannot see it. Even if someone has a pair of sharp eyes and noticed it, it is possible that they would not be able to understand what it means. Most of them will think that you are a natural born beauty with a beautiful color in your eyes. It does make you look charming and pretty. However, it isn't natural after all.
It is caused by the martial art you have been cultivating.
When someday your pupils became dark blue too, and you still haven't been eaten any Regeneration Jade Lotus, you will be in fatal danger. You can die at any second.
Your pupils have been developing to dark blue.’’
Ye Xiao smiled, ’’So, you don't have a lot of time before you die now. Even if you stop cultivating from now on, you will only have half a year left.’’
He paused and continued, ’’All right. I believe you are aware of your own condition. Am I right? You seem to have a broad mind facing death. I truly admire you.’’
The lady in white was still indifferent. She didn't say anything in response. In fact, she had agreed with Ye Xiao. It seemed she truly didn't care much about her own life.
’’What? What did you say?’’ A scream sounded behind Ye Xiao.
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu arrived and stood in front of Ye Xiao. She stared at him tightly and spoke in a panic, ’’Brother Feng, you... you... Is it true?’’
Ye Xiao spoke blandly, ’’I told you. I can't be sure whether my opinion is right or not. I am not the one to make the call. You can ask this lady. She is the one we are talking about. She knows the best about her own business. Hmm. She must be your master? I wouldn't know it if you don't panic like this.’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu turned around, looked at the lady and said sadly, ’’Master, is it true? Do you really have only half a year left to live?’’
The lady spoke blandly, ’’Maybe not as much. So what?’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's body was shaking after she heard that. She staggered and said, ’’But Master... You... Why...’’
The lady said, ’’That's why I came to the Land of Han-Yang.’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu burst into tears. She wept and said, ’’I see... Master, you have never thought about getting cured. You never want to relieve the disease... You just... You just want to spend the rest of your time with me, right?’’
The lady's cold eyes turned soft. She looked at her disciple and said lightly, ’’No.’’
’’Yes! That's the truth!’’ Wen-Ren Chu-Chu cried like crazy, ’’But... But we have a practical solution now, don't we? Even though you don't want to be touched by Brother Feng, I have found the Regeneration Ink Lotus! It will become the Regeneration Jade Lotus soon. Master, there is still hope! Why do you give up? Why?
Why do you give up?!’’ She cried.
The lady was still looking at her with her soft eyes and didn't say anything for a long while.
The two of them, the master and the disciple, stood together. One had a silk on her face while the other didn't. However, just like Ye Xiao had said, they didn't seem like master and disciple. They were more like sisters standing together.
In fact, the lady looked even younger. She looked like she was only seventeen years old.
In her eyes, which were looking at Wen-Ren Chu-Chu, there was care and love. It was like a mother looking at her own daughter.
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's tears kept dropping down. She turned around looking at Ye Xiao and begged, ’’Brother Feng, look... My master... She... Do you have any other solution?’’
Ye Xiao frowned and said, ’’I can't guarantee you anything though. I need to check more carefully and then come to a better conclusion. However, I need to tell you that the Regeneration Ink Lotus you gave me last time, it won't become a Regeneration Jade Lotus for you... Because it was gone.’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was shocked, ’’What? What did you just say? Did you... Did you ruin the Regeneration Ink Lotus? You...’’ And then her eyes were filled with killing intent. She kept staring at Ye Xiao.
Ye Xiao sensed the danger immediately. He didn't dare to fool her anymore and said, ’’Look at you. I meant... The Regeneration Ink Lotus has been developed successfully by me. It is the Regeneration Jade Lotus now. The Regeneration Ink Lotus is gone, but we have the Regeneration Jade Lotus now... You used your imagination on a negative way. Don't blame me.’’
[Little girl, now you know you shouldn't mess with me.
I can make you feel like in hell and also make you feel like in heaven by only saying some words.]
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was stunned and then smiled through her tears. She said surprisedly, ’’Have you truly developed the Regeneration Ink Lotus successfully?’’
