Chapter 1336: Master, Are You Crazy?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Jiang Yi was quite seriously injured, but Gu Mu’s injuries were worse!
Still, two of them were very strong. Gu Mu, in particular, was comparable to a Chaos Beast. Even without recuperation medicine, his recuperation abilities alone would heal him significantly in just one or two Lower-Domain days. If he could escape dangerous situations, he would be out of trouble.
In just half a day, Gu Mu could sit up straight while cross-legged and recuperate. During this time, Jiang Yi also managed to heal his broken bones. The Rootless Water’s effect wore off earlier on. The good thing was he had Gu Mu around. This helped him to relax considerably while he was in this weak state.
Once he regained his alertness, he became antsy. Another day of recuperation passed before Jiang Yi opened his eyes and sent a thought to Gu Mu through their spiritual connection: “Should we go and find another place to hide? If someone comes to kill us, we’ll be in trouble.”
“Master, don’t worry!”
Gu Mu answered respectfully. “There are no formidable martial artists of the Battle God Pavilion Luo Clan nearby. That Primitive-Grade Chaos Beast was scared away by your flames, but it should still be in the Fire Lake. The God Generals of the Battle God Pavilion Luo Clan would not dare to come down alone. By the time they send a message back to their clan and reinforcements arrive, more than a day would have passed. As for the Earth Emanations Pavilion Luo Clan, you don’t need to worry as well. This time, I was made responsible for the mission. Without any orders from me, the others would not dare to come near the Demon Fire Mountain.”
Gu Mu was now Jiang Yi’s soul slave; there was no way he would set Jiang Yi up. Thus, Jiang Yi relaxed again and continued recuperating. At the same time, he thought about his next steps. Even with a God King as his soul slave, he could not say that he would be completely safe. The Battle God Pavilion Luo Clan and the Earth Emanations Pavilion Luo Clan still had many God Kings under them.
Thus, even with Gu Mu leading him, escaping would be dangerous. The moment either of these two clans received news of his escape, there would be trouble. The Battle God Pavilion Luo Clan needed him as a witness to go after the people responsible; there was no way they would let him go. The Earth Emanations Pavilion Luo Clan would be even more ruthless for sure. Jiang Yi guessed that they would send at a group of God Kings after him soon.
Most importantly, where would he run?
The Battle God Pavilion and the Earth Emanations Pavilion Luo Clan were extremely powerful. They had strong connections all around Blue Eagle Prefecture. The Battle God Pavilion, in particular, still had a formidable martial artist in Blue Eagle Prefecture’s Battle God Pavilion. Just one order would send countless God Kings from Battle God Pavilion after Jiang Yi. It was hard to say if he and Gu Mu would even be able to make it to the next city. Even if they could, perhaps they might die there.
Leave Blue Eagle Prefecture?
This journey was long. Without Teleportation Formations, he would have to travel a long way. Yet, Teleportation Formations came at a sky-high price. The divine roots that Gu Mu had were not enough to carry them far. There was no way that they would be able to leave Blue Eagle Prefecture.
Ask Gu Mu!
Jiang Yi pondered for a while and decided to focus on recuperating. Once the two of them felt better, they would figure a way out.
After a day of using his recuperation techniques, Jiang Yi was much better. At the very least, his injuries would no longer affect his running or fighting. Gu Mu recovered even faster. He was about seventy to eighty percent recovered by now.
Jiang Yi walked over and sat down next to him. In a low voice, he asked, “What should we do now? Where should we go?”
Gu Mu stopped recuperating for a moment as his eyebrows twitched. He mumbled to himself for a while before he answered, “Master, your situation is very dangerous. You have no other choice now but to find a tribe to cultivate in. You should only try to leave once you are strong enough. Otherwise, you will die if you attempt to leave. Both you and I will have the same ending. Once we enter a tribe, however, no one would dare to assassinate you, even in Divine Eagle Tribe. These are the rules. The Earth Emanations Pavilion Luo Clan cannot break these rules.”
A pained look crossed Jiang Yi’s face. If Stellarsky Domain was not in trouble, he would be willing to cultivate in the Higher Domain for tens or hundreds of years, so that he could become a Demon-Killing Battle God. If he could do that, he would be able to roam Earth Emanations Domain as he pleased.
However, Stellarsky Domain was on the brink of destruction. How could he hide in Divine Eagle Tribe to train?
He would rather die. At least then, he would be spared of so much pain. Jiang Yi heaved a long sigh and asked hopefully, “Can you bring me to Blue Lion City? If I have to cultivate, I want to cultivate at Blue Lion City.”
Jiang Xiaonu was there. If he went to Blue Lion City, at least he would be reunited with her. As for Stellarsky Domain’s problems, he could think of a resolution once he arrived at Blue Lion City. Jiang Xiaonu was a pure and innocent girl. Jiang Yi would always be worried about her as long as she was alone in Blue Lion Tribe.
Gu Mu’s answer caused Jiang Yi’s heart to sink to his feet. Gu Mu said frustratedly, “My skills are not considered powerful. Blue Lion City is very far away. If we fly there, we would probably be killed along the way…”
Jiang Yi refused to give up. “We can take Teleportation Formations. Your divine roots should take us as far as Blue Lion City. Don’t worry, I will return the divine roots to you once I get the chance!”
“Master, this is not a problem of divine roots. Teleportation Formations are all controlled by Earth Emanations Pavilion!”
Gu Mu laughed mirthlessly. “If I go with you to another city, the Earth Emanations Pavilion Luo Clan would find out about us. Then, they will see me as a traitor. Although they would not dare to kill me while I am in another city, they would surely not let us use their Teleportation Formations. What’s more… the nearest city is Divine Fire City. It would take me at least half a day to bring you there. The formidable martial artists of Earth Emanations Pavilion Luo Clan would surely teleport to Divine Fire City by then and wait for us outside the city. We would have no way of entering!”
“It’s another dead end?”
Jiang Yi narrowed his eyes. He thought that with a God King as his soul slave, he would be able to roam around easily. Now, it looked like he had just gotten his hopes up for nothing. Rage and helplessness burned in his chest. It felt like no matter how hard he tried, he would always be just an ant in this world.
“No way, I have to go to Blue Lion City. Even if I die, I want to make sure that Jiang Xiaonu is safe first. I don’t care if I only get a glance of her from afar!”
Jiang Yi’s gaze was crazed, and the corner of his mouth was twitching. He looked almost evil. His eyes glinted. When he turned to Gu Mu, Gu Mu’s heart jumped; he just had an ominous feeling.
Indeed, Jiang Yi opened his mouth again. “Gu Mu, if… we hold Luo Qingyan hostage, can we use the Teleportation Formations to go to Blue Lion City?”
“What? Master, are you crazy?”
Gu Mu’s eyes widened as he exclaimed, “Master, we cannot do this! Young Mistress Luo is the only daughter of the Earth Emanations Pavilion Luo Clan’s City Lord. Whoever dares to touch her will drive the City Lord mad for sure. Then, he would want to kill us at all costs. This would put us in danger even after we arrive in another city. He is the City Lord. His father was once a servant of Blue Eagle Prefecture’s Prefecture Lord. Even in another city, he can get us. The Prefecture Lord would just reprimand him at the very most…”
Jiang Yi laughed to himself and spoke as if this was nothing to him. “If I can take Luo Qingyan hostage, would City Lord Luo still kill us before making sure that his daughter was alright?
A cold look crossed Jiang Yi’s eyes as he continued, “You and I can’t even get to Divine Fire City. We will only be able to escape to Divine Eagle Tribe. This tribe is the territory of the Earth Emanations Pavilion Luo Clan and the Battle God Pavilion Luo Clan. Are you sure we will be safe there?
“Even if they won’t dare to kill us in broad daylight, they could still do so in secret. Would the Demon-Killing Pavilion fight with both of these great powers for the sake of a small character like me? If City Lord Luo accuses me of being a spy for the Netherworld Realm and gives orders for me to be caught, who would dare to stop him? If I die, would you survive?”
Gu Mu pondered this for a moment. This made sense. City Lord Luo was the City Lord. If he wanted to come at them, even the Demon-Killing Pavilion would not be able to stop him. However, he answered very hesitantly. “Master, don’t be rash. We have to slowly think of another solution…”
“You can think slowly on your own!”
Jiang Yi answered aggressively, waving his hand. “There’s still some time before we return. If you don’t think of another plan by the time we reach Divine Eagle Tribe, we are taking Luo Qingyan hostage! Keke, this woman planned everything so perfectly. I wonder if we will be able to take her.”
