Once she consumed the pills, the effect of the pill was instantly brought forth, resulting in her having the quickest rate of recovery for her internal organs. If it wasn’t for these pills, Mu Ru Yue wouldn’t have done such a reckless move.
“Hou!” Ling Ye gave out a beastial roar. Swish! He once again charged towards Mu Ru Yue. He concentrated all of his remaining strength into this sword with the intention to kill that young girl with his final attack.
The tyrannical energy entered Mu Ru Yue’s body, causing her to be heavily tossed back. She quickly took out another pill bottle and consumed the pills within it, instantly restoring her to full health once again.
The heavens knew how much Ye Wu Chen was holding back his impulse to charge out and kill Ling Ye. Yet, he knew Mu Ru Yue didn’t want him to assist, so he must respect her choice.
But whenever he saw Mu Ru Yue get hurt, his heart would bleed. His magnificent face behind the mask turned ashen. He clenched his fist so tightly that he didn’t even notice when blood began to flow out from his palm.
At this instant, he wished that he was the one getting hurt instead, as he couldn’t stand to watch her in pain.
Ling Ye knelt heavily on the ground. He took in deep breathes while panting profusely. The pain wracking his body made his appearance look sinister. He wanted to climb back up and stand on his feet, but his body couldn’t support him, making him fall towards the ground again.
“Have you had enough?” Mu Ru Yue stood up as she emotionlessly walked towards Ling Ye. “Since you had your fun, shouldn’t it be my turn now?”
She gradually lifted her hand. Peng! A red flame lit up atop her palm before landing heavily on Ling Ye’s chest.
Ling Ye’s body was sent flying before crashing into the ground. He lifted his head to look maliciously at Mu Ru Yue. “That was done intentionally in order to make me use up all of my energy?”
Once a martial practitioner was out of energy, they would be sheep for slaughter.
There were two methods in recovering energy. One way was by cultivating, and the other was from consuming pills. It was a pity that Ling Ye’s alchemy ability wasn’t as great as Mu Ru Yue’s, so he couldn’t make an instant recovery with the latter method. If he wanted to recover his energy, he would require at least the time needed to burn an incense stick.
This was more than enough for Mu Ru Yue to do plenty of things to him.
“Didn’t you want to kill me? Didn’t you say I am unworthy to be the owner of the Phoenix Furnace? Didn’t you say that there were people more capable than me in using the Phoenix Furnace?” The corner of Mu Ru Yue’s lips curled slightly upward. Her smile was completely cool. “Yet, I had also mentioned that it would be impossible for you to kill me.”
The next moment, she gradually lifted the sword to stab Ling Ye. An anger-filled holler was then heard behind her. “Stop! Dirty slut, who allowed you to hurt my disciple?!”
A strong force violently struck towards Mu Ru Yue. Mu Ru Yue felt her breathing become sluggish as she was unable to move. At this critical moment, an arm stretched over from her side and pulled her body into his embrace.
“I had previously respected your decision to fight on your own as you had confidence in defeating him. But the current you is not a match for his master, so please let me help you settle it this time.”
Mu Ru Yue’s heart trembled slightly, but she didn’t say anything. She still had self-awareness. It was indeed what Ye Wu Chen had said. The reason why she didn’t want him to interfere during her battle with Ling Ye was due to her being confident that he couldn’t kill her.
But the expert that came forth now was obviously not someone she could resist at her current level. She definitely wouldn’t seek her death by trying to battle him.
Yan Jin shrunk his body, grievance filling his black eyes.
He suddenly felt that his presence was so negligible….
