1069 Poison-dipped Cold Bead



The control center of the battleship.

The arched ceiling of this cabin had been inlaid with a lot of seven-colored gemstones. Each gemstone represented a life star in Shadow Ghostly Prison. The distances between the gems represented each star's related location in the galaxy. This was an exquisite and precise star map that the Fighting League had spent a lot of money to buy from Potion and Tool Pavilion.

The magnificent star map hung above the two gorgeous women in this room. The two of them sat down opposite each other. Their eyes sparkled with strange lights.

"Before the Divine Light has arrived in Shadow Ghostly Prison, we've received the news from Second Elder of Potion and Tool Pavilion that confirmed that the Dark Shadow Clan had left." Zi Yao smiled warmly and spoke casually, "Well, it's like when the tree is down. Everyone jumps on it with their axes. Anyway, we use power to talk in Shadow Ghostly Prison. Xia xiao-mei, I think you understand the Divine Light's operation here. We take the chance and jump in. Well, it's similar to your Fighting League's operations though."

Xia Xin Yan frowned. She didn't oppose because she knew that Zi Yao was right.

In their peak of glory, the Fighting League had fought here and there in Shadow Ghostly Prison. They used force to threaten the weak. They had many tricks that couldn't be said frank and upright. Well, they were despicable, indeed.

She didn't have the right to mock Divine Light's operation here.

"My senior Sana's in charge of this operation. I'm just a visitor." Zi Yao laughed and then spoke to Xia Xin Yan gently. "But I can help you get out of here."

Xia Xin Yan was surprised. She looked bewildered for a while, her mouth pulling into a strange smile. "You're a member of the Divine Light, but you're kind enough to help me? Tell me, what do you want? You should know I'm not easy to fool. Don't hide your real intentions."

"Haha," Zi Yao giggled and spoke with a lazy complexion, "Divine Light wants to exchange you for half of the Dark Shadow Clan's territories. Those territories are the richest lands of the Dark Shadow Clan. Oh, right. Before I came here, I got news that Hegemon Feng Han has agreed with this. He has sent Miao Rong and his Water Moon War Department. Oh, your Hegemon is generous, indeed. You have a good master."

Xia Xin Yan's countenance was natural.

"You don't think it's weird?" Zi Yao was surprised.

"No," Xia Xin Yan smiled gently and spoke naturally, "When will Miao Rong arrive?"

"I estimate that it will take one month. He brings the hand-written letter from Feng Han. It's the comprehensive treaty. That letter will give us a lot of land without the need to fight for them. Those lands... should belong to the Fighting League though."

Zi Yao focused on her and spoke tenderly, "If you agree with me one thing, I can let you leave discreetly. I'm sure when Sana recognizes it, you guys are all safe. What do you think?"


"You tell me." Xia Xin Yan frowned and suddenly became serious.

It's a one-clause agreement that could help save many lands. Xia Xin Yan thought it would be too big for her to be able to make the deal.

"It's simple." Zi Yao smiled happily, her bright eyes squinting. "You just need to leave him."

"Who?" Xia Xin Yan was baffled.

"You know who." Zi Yao replied gently. Her eyes sparkled strangely. She took a deep breath as she was actually anxious.

Xia Xin Yan's face stiffened. She kept silent as she was pondering. After a while, her eyes became colder. She screamed, "I reject it."

She got the answer.

When Zi Yao arrived, her beautiful eyes had suddenly scanned through the crowd, searching for someone. After she got on the deck of this battleship, she had checked every random area. Apparently, she was looking for someone. At the critical moment, Shi Yan disappeared. Linking these two events, she understood it.

The smile on Zi Yao's face narrowed. She said earnestly, "It can save your Fighting League a big fortune this time. Is he worth you holding on?"

"Well, needless to say, half of the territories of the Dark Shadow Clan. Even if you guys ask the Hegemon for all, he will agree. However, even if you do that, I won't leave him because of this or because of your words."

Xia Xin Yan looked totally relaxed. She smiled lovingly, "Well, if you use this method to force me, I think he hasn't established any relationship with you, right? Ah ha! It makes me curious then. You're so beautiful and he's a lustful bastard. Well, he hasn't done anything to you, right? Could you tell me what has happened? It's not what he would do."

Since Zi Yao had come here, she had always taken the upper hand. However, what Xia Xin Yan told her had put her into a lower position. She gritted her teeth as she mumbled, "It's because he has known you earlier. Or else, he would have kneeled under my dress!"

"So, it has not happened yet, right?" Xia Xin Yan smiled meaningfully. Her beautiful eyes twinkled. She stood up with the bright countenance of a winner.

Zi Yao felt like she had failed. She pondered for a while and then stood up. She spoke casually, "Never mind. If we can't talk to each other into this, I will take him with my abilities. It's my warning to you just in case you say that I'm forcing you."

"No no no," Xia Xin Yan smiled until her eyes squinted. "Come and steal him. I like competing with people a lot. Especially when my rival is at your level. Oh just thinking about it makes my blood boil. Okay, I will shut my mouth. I will say nothing about what happened today between us. Just consider this as a little chit-chat. What do you think?"

"You read my mind," Zi Yao looked at her and sighed. She knew that this rival was extremely tough. Compared to the characters she had met, she was much tougher.

Thinking about competing for a man against this sort of opponent, she had a headache. However, thinking about that man, she couldn't help it.

That bastard! Why do you have to hide? Am I that frightening? Or are you afraid of seeing the fight between your lover and me? Asshole!

She was cursing him under her breath. When Zi Yao's and Xia Xin Yan's eyes locked, the two pairs of beautiful eyes seemed to send sparks into the air. They immediately left the control center, their faces even brighter and happier. They looked like two sisters who had just had a good talk. They made the warriors of Fighting League and Divine Light wear awkward complexions.

"Mei-mei..." Sana frowned. He looked as if he wanted to say something.

He was worried that Zi Yao and Xia Xin Yan's talk would stand in the way of Divine Light's big plan. He didn't know what to do now.

"Miss Xia and I couldn't talk it through." Zi Yao opened her hand and she said with a smile, "So, you should do what you need to do. I won't interfere."

Sana and the Divine Light warriors exhaled in relief.

"Miss Xia, Miao Rong will arrive in one month. After we get the letter from him, we will let you go," said Sana coldly. He immediately escorted Zi Yao together with the other experts and left.

Xia Xin Yan didn't look dispirited. Quite the contrary, she looked as if she had won a big game. She was even a little content.

Her subordinates also didn't understand. They sighed that the world of women was truly something men couldn't reason. They could never know what the two beautiful women had just discussed.

--------------------

In the secret chamber of the battleship, Shi Yan was sitting cross-legged on a jade platform. However, it was just his empty body. His soul seemed to leave his body to a fairyland. At this moment, he didn't have a bit of life energy surging.

When Zi Yao came, he had tried his best to avoid because he didn't want to meet Zi Yao at this moment. He didn't want to see Zi Yao and Xia Xin Yan have any dispute. Anyway, he didn't know that this dispute still happened.

Shi Yan knew Feng Han of Fighting League would agree with Divine Light's conditions because Feng Han had taken care of Xia Xin Yan and protected her as his blood sister. He also knew that if Zi Yao knew how Shi Yan cared about Xia Xin Yan, she would hurt her.

At most, they would complicate the conditions in the treaty between Fighting League and Divine Light. No matter what, Xia Xin Yan's life wouldn't be threatened.

With this premise, Shi Yan didn't mind the competition between the Divine Light and Fighting League regarding the Dark Shadow Clan's territories that much.

He was carefree enough to let his soul enter the fountainhead of power Upanishad.

There, he received signals of Fires power Upanishad and his two souls found the life energy fluctuations of Xuan Fei.

His souls moved forward and sent her his soul message from a distance, "I'm here to explain to you."

"Despicable!" Seeing him, Xuan Fei was enraged. She spoke resentfully, "To solve your problem, my master and I had to cross the border to get into Agate Star Area. My master had to stop her cultivation too. She had to consume a lot of energy to refine the Departed Spirit Jellyfish. Well, you're good. You didn't do anything and you took in the essence soul of the Departed Spirit Jellyfish. It was the Poison-dipped Cold Bead. You didn't even signal us. You'd planned it earlier, hadn't you?"

Shi Yan beamed a forced smile. "It was unexpected. It... it's called Poison-dipped Cold Bead?"

After he had absorbed the soul gossamers of the Departed Spirit Jellyfish, he did have an inky bead in his soul. That bead was cold and it contained magical soul energy fluctuations. However, he didn't know why it was magical. Listening to Xuan Fei, Shi Yan knew that the bead was called Poison-dipped Cold Bead.

"Unexpected?" Xuan Fei's small face was filled with disdain. "If it was unexpected, you should return the bead to my master, so we can trust you again."

It was beyond Xuan Fei's estimation that Shi Yan chuckled and nodded. "I'm here to tell you and your teacher that if you have free time, come and take that poison-dipped bead. I can't bring it to the fountainhead of power Upanishad and I don't have free time to come to your place. So, I would ask for your labor to come here once again."

Xuan Fei was surprised. "Are you serious?"

Shi Yan smiled and confirmed it.

"My master said that the Poison-dipped Cold Bead is the condensed soul of the Departed Spirit Jellyfish. It can gather extremely toxic poisons in the world and release toxic smokes. Besides, it was the source of energy so as the jellyfish could live in the cold Yin sea. It's much more useful to the warriors who have fused with heaven flames like us. If we have the Poison-dipped Cold Bead in our soul while cultivating, we won't be backfired or fall into bedevilment. The heaven flames wouldn't be able to burn our body and soul. You also know that warriors with heaven flames like us will be burned into ashes when we fall into bedevilment. The usage of the Poison-dipped Cold Bead can prevent it. It's really precious. Do you really want to return it to us?"

Xuan Fei was suspicious.

"Yeah, I came here this time to ask you to tell your master. When she has free time, please come to take the Poison-dipped Cold Bead. It belongs to her."

"Okay, I will tell her."

"Okay. I have to go now. Goodbye."

Shi Yan smiled and left the area of Fires power Upanishads. His souls flashed and then faded away as his figured disappeared.
