Chapter 762: Rescuing Yu Xiangbing
Although there was not much difference between night and day for cultivators, Di Jiu still chose to do it at night.
It was because most Dao cultivators followed the change of Yin and Yang between Heaven and Earth. Even if there was nothing, they were still used to meditating at night.
The Mo Clan’s square was full of Illumination Arrays. The only difference between night and day was that fewer people were walking on the square.
The nomological array flags set up by Di Jiu quickly formed a hidden passage. Without needing to hide, Di Jiu arrived at the Soul-Sealing Pillar from the side.
The Mo Family had never thought that anyone would dare come to their square to save someone, as they were out of bounds in the Innocuous Realm. Anyone who dared provoke the Mo Family had disappeared from this world a long time ago.
Perhaps because of this self-confidence, the Soul-Burning Array set up by the Mo Family on the square was only a level-five Divine Array. In fact, the level-five Divine Array was untouchable in the Innocuous Realm. Would a level-five Divine Array King even appear that easily?
However, these people had not taken into account Di Jiu. Di Jiu did not even take out the array flags before the nomological array flags sealed this Soul-Burning Array. It easily stripped away the Soul-Nailing Restriction on Yu Xiangbing that nailed her down and she fell in his embrace as soon as he lifted his hand. However, the alarm restriction of the Soul-Sealing Pillar was not triggered.
Yu Xiangbing, who had been sealed by the Soul-Sealing Pillar, could still breathe. Even though Di Jiu had rescued her, her aura was about to dissipate between Heaven and Earth.
This was why the Mo Family was not worried. Even if someone saved Yu Xiangbing, she would die without a doubt. Plus, no one would dare take the risk to offend the Mo Family to save her. The only difference it would make was that it would stop Yu Xiangbing from suffering.
Unfortunately, the Mo Family had met Di Jiu this time, who was a Primordial Dao Alchemy Saint and an Alchemy Dao expert who could become a Primordial Chaos Alchemy Saint at any time.
This was not akin to Xiangbing’s soul completely dissipating. Di Jiu put a few drops of First Evolution True Dew in Yu Xiangbing’s mouth and a Dao mist formed by a Dao pill enveloped her. Then, he dropped another healing Dao pill into her mouth. Only a few sects could take out a Primordial Dao pill, not to mention an extremely rare treasure like First Evolution True Dew.
Yu Xiangbing’s soul was instantly stabilized. In a flash, her aura started to get stronger.
Yu Xiangbing was different from Ye Yimo. Not only was her physical body still present, but her soul was also present. The Mo Family had burned her soul on the Stained Abyss Flame, only to make her suffer every moment. Once she was rescued, she would recuperate fast with enough techniques.
After Yu Xiangbing was stabilized, Di Jiu left the Mo Clan as quickly as possible. By using his escape technique, he arrived at a place far from the Mo Clan in just half an hour.
He had rescued Yu Xiangbing for two reasons. First, he could not bear to see the cruel punishment of the Mo Family. Second, he wanted to ask whether the Mo Family had a third-step expert. If they really did, he would have to take back his Heavenly Aqua Saber through other means.
When Yu Xiangbing woke up, she realized that she was lying on a jade bed. Shocked, she got up all of a sudden.
Immediately, she felt that something was wrong. The expert of the Mo Family had plotted against her. She must have been stripped naked and nailed on the Soul-Sealing Pillar while her soul was being burned by the underground flame. Why was she here? Plus, her cultivation level…
Only then did she realize that her foundation had not been lost. Although her cultivation level had dropped to the first step, she was still at Dao Modeling. Not only was the surrounding Divine Spirit Qi rich, but it also had a very high level.
Had someone saved her? Who would save her in the Innocuous Realm? Saving her was not possible with any ordinary elixir pill or treasure. One would need at least a Dao pill or even the Primordial Dao Pill.
Even if the other party had all those things, why would they use them to save her? Primordial Dao Pills were priceless.
Unless it had been her sisters. However, ever since Mo Ge had provoked Dao Lord Ning, where had her sisters been? Shan Li, Yin Shu, and Ruan Yi had all been killed in battle. She and Shi Man had escaped to the Mo Family with Zhu Yinghua to ask for help. He he… In the end, Zhu Yinghua and Mo Ge’s uncle, Mo Zhou, had gotten together and forcefully trampled on Shi Man. Then, Sister Shi Man had committed suicide.
Not only was that slut Zhu Yinghua’s cultivation level becoming stronger and stronger, but she was also becoming increasingly more vicious. Thus, Zhu Yinghua would never save her. If Zhu Yinghua saw her, she would probably kill her immediately.
Upon thinking of the deaths of her sisters and her soul being burned for tens of thousands of years, Yu Xiangbing felt sorrowful.
“You woke up!” A man’s voice suddenly interrupted Yu Xiangbing’s sorrow. Yu Xiangbing looked up to see a young man walk out of the room.
“You saved me?” Yu Xiangbing subconsciously asked.
Di Jiu nodded. “Yes, I saved you.”
“Why did you save me?” Yu Xiangbing looked at Di Jiu blankly.
Indeed, she was a beauty. However, after being burned for tens of thousands of years, her good looks were gone.
Di Jiu smiled. “If I said that I just couldn’t bear to see the Mo Family’s behavior and I saved you just to ask you a few questions, would you believe me?”
Di Jiu had not expected that Yu Xiangbing would nod her head without hesitation. “I believe you.”
Di Jiu froze. He had thought Yu Xiangbing would not believe him. After all, cultivators who thought like him had gone extinct.
Yu Xiangbing looked at Di Jiu and said earnestly, “That year, our cultivation level got stronger because we had a backing and we did not take anyone seriously. Finally, one day, one of my sisters met a young cultivator like you. Our husband wanted to take his cultivation partner away from him right in front of him, which provoked this young man and made him angry…”
Yu Xiangbing seemed to be lost in her memories once again. “We thought that killing this young man would be as simple as eating and breathing, but we didn’t expect that he would be a true expert. We met a formidable person for the first time. This incident taught the few of us a lesson. However, there was not much of an effect. Afterward, our husband was killed by that man, and so were three of my sisters. Then, someone betrayed us and plotted against us, so there wasn’t a second time…”
Di Jiu frowned. Suddenly, he believed some of the information he had acquired by asking around. This woman’s husband had tried to take away someone else’s cultivation partner right in front of her. Based on her tone, this woman seemed to have found it normal at the time.
This made him a little sick. Maybe he had really saved the wrong person.
Yu Xiangbing snapped out of her memories. When she saw Di Jiu’s frown, she laughed self-derisively. “After that incident, I realized how many mistakes we had made. In the beginning, I still thought of taking revenge on his behalf. I later understood that I had been wrong since the first day I had followed him. Sister Man had been killed, so I wanted to avenge her and kill Mo Zhou. However, my cultivation level was too low. Without Dao Lord Ning, I would have died in Mo Zhou’s hands.”
Upon hearing Mo Zhou’s name, Di Jiu was immediately spirited. He really wanted to hear about Mo Zhou.
Yu Xiangbing took a look at Di Jiu and said with a sigh, “Dao Lord Ning was the person we wanted to deal with. I really didn’t expect him to help me. He was a true expert and a real man. He made me understand that there is morality and kindness in the world, but by the time I understood that, my sisters were all dead.”
“What happened later?” Di Jiu was mostly concerned about this and what had happened to Mo Zhou.
Yu Xiangbing continued speaking. “Although Mo Zhou was not killed at the time, I was satisfied that I was able to seriously injure him. I planned to get far away from this side of the universe and go to a quiet place without any acquaintances to spend my life there. However, at the time, I was chased down by the people of the Mo Family, who plotted against me, nailed me on their square, and burned me.”
“What about Mo Zhou?” Di Jiu was mostly concerned about Mo Zhou. In his opinion, even before Yu Xiangbing had been burned, she had only been at half-step Dao Integration. Even though he had overestimated her a little, she was only an early-stage Dao Integration cultivator, so he would not take her seriously.
