Chapter 47: Into the Misty Desolate Valley (4)
Lu Qingyun had taken out a silver pill and popped it into Leng Qiuyue’s mouth as he said, “Xingyuan, I need your help”. This silver pill was actually the Triple Divine Essence Pill.
Lie Xingyuan immediately understood what he was thinking and she gently used her profound strength to melt the pill that was in Leng Qiuyue’s mouth by rubbing her stomach.
“Thank you…” he said. He did not want to take any close advantage of Leng Qiuyue while she was unconscious.
When Ouyang Xue saw the silver pill, she was startled. It was because this was the Triple Divine Essence Pill, an extremely rare pill that cost a huge bomb of rare resources. This rare pill could even aid Leng Qiuyue to overcome her cultivation deadlock and had a good chance of propelling her into the fourth realm level!
And yet Lu Qingyun had so casually taken it out to give it to her?
Lu Qingyun did not have any other pills that could treat severe internal injuries and moreover he had suddenly understood that Leng Qiuyue had been severely injured three days back. It was just that she managed to keep her condition a secret with her casual countenance. But the truth was that she had been struggling with her internal injuries.
The strength of a fourth rank desolate beast was powerful enough to whack any second and first realm cultivators to death even if they managed to block the attack. Although Leng Qiuyue had blocked off the attacks from the two fourth rank desolate beasts, she suffered severe internal injuries as she did so.
But he knew that the Triple Divine Essence Pill was not only good for raising the cultivation strength of the cultivator but it could also heal internal injuries. Therefore he had taken it out without any hesitation.
Ouyang Xue looked at Lu Qingyun as she asked quietly, “Senior brother, what realm are you at now?”
Lu Qingyun was startled when Ouyang Xue had suddenly asked him this question. So he casually replied, “Upper third realm.”
Ouyang Xue gasped in shock. He was the same realm as her now? But she had always thought that he was just a lowly first realm cultivator…
Behind Lu Qingyun, the rest of the ordinary protégés were muttering.
“Did you see that? Our senior brother has actually killed a fourth rank desolate beast in a single strike.”
“I always knew that our senior brother is a hidden dragon. He is just pretending to be weak. Or else our sect leader won’t make him her direct disciple.”
“I always know that our senior brother is a high level expert. It’s just that you guys may not believe me if I tell you so…”
Ouyang Xue smiled weakly as she looked at Lu Qingyun, “Thank you for saving all of us.” This was heartfelt thank that was coming from the bottom of her heart as she felt that she may not be able to defeat the Star Desolate Ape alone after Leng Qiuyue was down.
Lu Qingyun replied awkwardly, “This is nothing at all. I have owed it to Xingyuan for the successful attack.”
Ouyang Xue nodded and turned to Lie Xingyuan, “Xingyuan, that Winds Entropy Dance. Are you…”
Lie Xingyuan panicky replied, “I actually have a lot of practice with such that stroke. I am only at the second realm. Maybe in my panicky moment, I did much better than my usual self.” She really did not want anyone to know that she was a third realm cultivator or else she would be promoted to be a core protege. She just wanted to be Lu Qingyun’s attendant forever…
Ouyang Xue nodded but she did not force Lie Xingyuan to admit otherwise. It was because she herself was a third realm cultivator and she knew from the way Lie Xingyuan reacted that she was already a third realm cultivator.
She thought, “So we actually have four third realm cultivators in this experiential mission…”
Leng Qiuyue was aroused from her unconsciousness and was looking blankly at Lie Xingyuan and Lu Qingyun as she muttered weakly, “What did you feed me just now?” It was because she had suddenly felt her strength renewing and that her internal injuries were smoothened.
Ouyang Xue could not resist replying for Lu Qingyun as she smiled weakly, “Senior brother he has given you the Triple Divine Essence Pill to consume and has saved you. You ought to say thank you to him.”
Leng Qiuyue was startled as she stared blankly at Lu Qingyun. Although she did not say thanks but in her heart, she had already sworn to follow him…
Lu Qingyun smiled awkwardly as he quickly said, “There is no need to say thank you at all. I’m only helping what I can do.”
Then he said, “You should try to take a good rest first.”
Rushuang was immediately at the side of Leng Qiuyue as she said softly, “Senior sister, let me take you to the tent to rest.”
Leng Qiuyue nodded lightly but her eyes had never left Lu Qingyun…
However Lu Qingyun did not notice it as his eyes had already wandered off to the scene of the carnage as he looked at the vicinity keenly but it was not lost on both Ouyang Xue and Lie Xingyuan who were watching them keenly.
Somehow Lu Qingyun’s sixth sense had told him that there was something amiss in the vicinity. Well, his sixth had always been accurate. At least it did warn him right never to court Qin Keqin and it was proven to be right…
He gave a weak smile as he said, “I’m going out of the camp to scout the vicinity for a while.”
Ouyang Xue gasped, “Let me go with you. You won’t be safe alone.”
Lu Qingyun smiled, “Someone needs to be around to protect the camp. Am I right?”
Ouyang Xue was forced to nod reluctantly…
“Well, I’ll just bring Xingyuan along.” He said soon after. “I will be back in no time at all. I am just curious about the vicinity.”
Ouyang Xue lowered glances, “Alright, you’ve got to watch your back.” Then she took out a fire flare and said, “Please bring this along with you. If you have met with any danger, please light this fire flare and please don’t wander too far.”
Lu Qingyun took the fire flare with a smile, “Don’t worry. I’ll be fine.”
As Lu Qingyun and Lie Xingyuan walked out of the camp, Lie Xingyuan was smiling. “Senior brother, you are indeed generous.”
Lu Qingyun laughed awkwardly, “You mean that Triple Divine Essence Pill?”
She nodded and said, “If I were you, I will never use it for a stranger. Moreover it is for an icy maiden like Leng Qiuyue.”
“I think she isn’t really that bad based on my past encounter with her.” He said thoughtfully.
“You have actually met her before?”
“Yes. I’ve met her and talk to her once when I was at the Red Heaven Sword Library.”
Lie Xingyuan: …
She was actually quite surprised that they had actually been talking to each other prior to this experiential mission.
