Shocking Venomous Consort: Frivolous Miss - Chapter 639 - Like a King Above the World
Chapter 639: Like a King Above the World
Ling Chuxi forcefully circulated her Qi of True Essence to withstand this mighty suppression. When she raised her head to look at the sky, she did not notice any human figures above.
Shortly after this, she felt an odd feeling sweeping past her body, as if a pair of eyes close at hand was observing her.
Cold sweat beaded on her forehead. Divine consciousness. Someone out there was using divine consciousness to probe her. Having cultivated with the Mind Training Chant, Ling Chuxi was no stranger to this kind of sensation. However, she never thought that someone’s divine consciousness could actually be so strong to such an extent and emit such a terrifying suppression.
Ling Chuxi did not even dare to move. It was just a divine consciousness and already it was so strong. If the other party wanted to kill her, it would be as easy as squishing an ant to death.
‘Who exactly was doing this? And why did they suddenly appear here? Could it be because of Qingjue?’ guessed Ling Chuxi as an unprecedented level of worry and concern arose in her heart.
The divine consciousness swept past her body and then directed its focus onto the Luo Chen Sword. Ling Chuxi suddenly felt that in her mind, her minute relation with the sword spirit suddenly disappeared, as if it had been completely cut off. The Luo Chen Sword also suddenly lost also its spirituality, becoming no different than any other ordinary iron blade sword.
The Cang Yuan sword spirit had actually at this moment, fallen into a deep and total sleep. Obviously, the Cang Yuan sword spirit had noticed the probing divine consciousness and therefore at this moment cut off its mental connection with Ling Chuxi.
The divine consciousness kept its focus on the Luo Chen Sword for a long time, sweeping past it again and again. In light of this, Ling Chuxi felt that this divine consciousness was not here because of Huangfu Qingjue, but rather because of the Luo Chen Sword. Or to be more exact, it was here for the Cang Yuan sword spirit.
This realization made her nervous, but at the same time, her heart also bafflingly felt much more at ease.
Finally, the divine consciousness retreated and left. Ling Chuxi’s head was covered in sweat, and she actually even had a feeling that she had just had a brush with death.
After a short while, a man in a long robe with his sleeves dancing in the wind appeared in the midst of the endless sky, looking like a king above the world who was watching over all living beings.
Although there were more than thousands of meters between them, Ling Chuxi seemed to have been able to see the sharp light in the man’s eyes. The man stared at Ling Chuxi for a long while, as if pondering something.
Suddenly, a surge of heavenly-shocking aura went forward in another direction, diffusing into precisely the direction in which Huangfu Qingjue had gone.
That man’s gaze scattered, and he seemed to chase after something in the direction Huangfu Qingjue went in.
The whole mountain covered in silvery snow once again returned to its previous peace and calm. Within the forest, there were even a few joyous birds chirping and beasts howling once more. The snowflakes and ice crystals in the air also once again lightly floated to the ground.
In Ling Chuxi’s eyes, a mist began to cloud her view.
In turns out that Huangfu Qingjue did not leave because of issues concerning his identity but for her sake. That man just now should be the strong reclusive cultivator he mentioned. Huangfu Qingjue left precisely in order to lure that man away.
Huangfu Qingjue led him away instead of meeting him straight on. What did this mean? It meant that he did not have absolute certainty he would win and was afraid that Ling Chuxi would be in danger as a result, and therefore could only lead the man away.
Ling Chuxi did not move, allowing the snowflakes to fall on her hair and cover her shoulders, unable to calm down for a long while.
After quite some time, Ling Chuxi’s thoughts returned to reality.
It was all down to cultivation. Everything was because her own cultivation was insufficient right now. Otherwise, Huangfu Qingjue would also not need to put himself at risk like this.
Only now did Ling Chuxi deeply experience the meaning of what Huangfu Qingjue said before he left. Before her cultivation was sufficiently strong enough, even if she was willing to help him share his burdens in everything, she would only end up becoming an additional burden.
A deep sense of helplessness flooded her heart, but after that came an unparalleled determination.
