Chapter 77 – Leaving and escaping home

Chapter 77 – Leaving and escaping home


On the way, Jian Luo was eagerly anticipating where Zhan Wentai would take him, carrying beautiful fantasies about these moments. They walked together with the priest leading the way, and Jian Luo followed closely behind.


Zhan Wentai deliberately stopped.


Jian Luo asked, “Where are you taking me?”


“To the sacred place,” Zhan Wentai, with his dignified appearance, naturally gave a sense of loftiness when speaking. “The sacred place of the Phoenix Platform.”


Jian Luo exclaimed, “Wow, impressive.”


The sacred place of the Phoenix Terrace was actually similar to that of the Dragon Clan, with their styles being remarkably alike. The Phoenix Clan deservedly held the status of divine beings, with a strong connection to the divine. The vast Phoenix Platform was shaped like a phoenix spreading its wings, with a hollow center and spiral staircases all around. Climbing up those stairs was a bit tiring.


Jian Luo, panting, asked, “Why don’t we use an elevator here?”


“There are no elevators here,” Zhan Wentai turned and said. “Generally, in places like this, we use flight.”


“Flight?” Jian Luo was surprised. “Really? I haven’t seen a Phoenix fly yet.”


Zhan Wentai glanced at him, as if Jian Luo had made a terrifying request. He cleared his throat.


Jian Luo coughed lightly. “I understand now, it’s about pride.”


“Yes, it’s about loyalty to one’s partner,” Zhan Wentai walked alongside Jian Luo, his voice firm. “It’s a kind of fidelity we show to each other.”


Jian Luo expressed his admiration, thinking about how their culture was so rich in rituals, much like the Dragon Clan.


Zhan Wentai, like a knowledgeable teacher, enlightened his eager student. “Phoenixes fly for others, Dragons allow people to touch their horns easily, Bloodline vampires let people use their coffins, and Pixius reveal their true form to humans.”


Jian Luo blurted out, “Why?”


Zhan Wentai glanced at him. “Which one are you asking about?”


“The first few, I can understand,” Jian Luo scratched his head. “But why does a Pixiu reveal its true form?”


Zhan Wentai explained, “Pixius are known for bringing wealth. They are filled with wealth energy all over their bodies. Their Pixiu bones are valuable, and they will only reveal their true form to someone they trust deeply.”


Jian Luo provided an analogy, “So, you mean Pixius are like treasures themselves?”


Zhan Wentai nodded.


“Oh, I remember now. Long-ge (Elder Brother Dragon) said something similar. Dragon blood and scales are highly precious. Many people covet them. When the Dragon Clan was weaker, there were instances of small dragons being hunted for their scales and blood.”


Following that logic, wouldn’t the Phoenix Clan also have something that attracts others? Jian Luo furrowed his brows. “Do people covet something from the Phoenix Clan?”


Zhan Wentai, acting like a teacher, didn’t directly answer but asked, “What do you think?”


Jian Luo felt a bit uneasy. “Um, let me guess. Maybe they covet your beauty?”


Zhan Wentai glanced at him, and Jian Luo quickly looked away, feeling embarrassed.


“Phoenixes have the ability of rebirth through fire,” Zhan Wentai explained without reservation. “With the blood and bones of a Phoenix, one can resurrect a person.”


Jian Luo widened his eyes. That was incredible! Divine beasts were truly divine. It was almost like they had a cheat code!


Recalling what Zhan Wentai had said, he remembered that Dragon Clan blood could heal all wounds, and their scales were nearly indestructible. People coveted them too. When the Dragon Clan was weaker, if invaded by extraterrestrial forces, young dragons might be hunted for their scales and blood.


By extension, wouldn’t the abilities of the Phoenix Clan be even more coveted? Resurrection was extraordinary.


Jian Luo frowned, thinking about Pixius, the wealth-bringing divine beasts. They were treasures themselves, and their entire beings exuded wealth. Did that also make them targets for covetousness? An innocent person might be wrongly accused, and without strong abilities to protect themselves, they could end up as sacrifices.


Thinking of this, Jian Luo suddenly felt a bit desolate.


Finally, they arrived at the so-called sacred place. It was the treasure of the High Priest, and Jian Luo was filled with curiosity.


Zhan Wentai said, “This is my sacred place. Enter with reverence.”


Jian Luo was ready to enter with joy. “Alright, alright!”


The priest gestured for him to push the door. Though it felt a bit formal, as an obedient student, Jian Luo decided to respect the teacher’s wishes. He reached for the door and pushed it with a bit more force…


A moment of silence.


Not a single movement.


Jian Luo looked somewhat embarrassed. “Uh, this door is heavy, really heavy.”




Zhan Wentai took a step forward and gently pushed the door open.




The grand door slowly rotated, and Jian Luo, full of anticipation for the Phoenix’s sacred place, was presented with rows upon rows of towering bookshelves that seemed to stretch to the horizon. It was truly breathtaking.


Jian Luo couldn’t help but speak, “Oh my, is this the sacred place?”


Zhan Wentai stood behind him and explained, “Knowledge is the most sacred power, and this is the treasure of the Phoenix Clan.”


Jian Luo was amazed.


He had thought that the entire floor of bookshelves on the 15th floor was impressive enough, but this was on a whole new level. Zhan Wentai continued, “When my heart is at peace, I come here to read. It helps me forget the pain.”


Jian Luo nodded, “Reading all of this, my head is buzzing with information. Teacher was right.”


Zhan Wentai gave him a cool glance.


Jian Luo, feeling guilty, mumbled, “Sorry.” There were stairs everywhere here, and since he was pregnant, he needed to be careful while walking. He easily got tired, especially after the long journey they had just taken.


Zhan Wentai extended his hand, his voice unusually gentle for the High Priest. “This place has steep stairs. Let me guide you.”


Jian Luo looked up at his face, the High Priest truly had an advanced appearance, and combined with his ethereal aura, he gave off the impression of being ready to ascend to the heavens at any moment. Moreover, he seemed quite gentle.


Thinking back, Jian Luo had previously considered Zhan Wentai to be rather stern, but now, he didn’t appear as strict as before.


Jian Luo walked over to Zhan Wentai, holding the priest’s slightly cold hand. It was a stark contrast to Zhan Wentai’s usual warm touch. “Thank you.”


Zhan Wentai led him down the stairs.


After a few levels, Zhan Wentai finally stopped on one of them and pointed upward, saying, “These are records left by humans when they first arrived on the Dark Star.”


Jian Luo was astonished. “Huh?”


He stared wide-eyed at the rows of text in front of him, then slowly walked to the next row and discovered that it was a series of dusty books. However, their preservation seemed nearly perfect.


Jian Luo turned to look at Zhan Wentai. “Have you studied these?”


“Yes,” Zhan Wentai nodded and pointed at the books. “Human languages are incredibly diverse, making translation a challenge.”


Jian Luo agreed wholeheartedly. Aside from Chinese and English, he couldn’t claim to be fluent in the other eight languages. He randomly picked up a book from the shelf, and luckily, it was in Chinese. The title read, “Records of the Underground City?”


A history book, perhaps. Jian Luo hadn’t lived through that period, but it didn’t hinder his interest in that part of history.


There were many books on the shelves, and Jian Luo began flipping through them one by one. He discovered that over the years, humans as a species had recorded and surveyed many planets during their long space travels, searching for a new home.


The Dark Star, according to human data analysis, was the most ecologically similar to Earth among the advanced planets. Jian Luo kept flipping until he thought he had reached the end of the book. However, as he was about to close it, he noticed a line of text at the very end: “Initial research suggests that the Dark Star’s original ecological circle has been disrupted, with the planet’s creatures losing their reproductive functions.”


This page was entirely in Chinese.


Jian Luo continued flipping and found some recipes and medicinal formulas at the end of the book. However, some of the characters were strange and unfamiliar.


It seemed that over the years, language had evolved and changed, even for the major languages like Chinese and English. Jian Luo turned to Zhan Wentai and asked, “Do you recognize these human languages?”


“I’ve studied them,” Zhan Wentai replied, walking beside Jian Luo. “If you need help, I can assist you.”


Jian Luo felt touched. “Thank you.”


What he thought was going to be a leisurely visit turned into a whole day immersed in the library. He had forgotten about everything else, engrossed in reading various records. He particularly focused on recipes, especially spicy ones, and diligently recorded them for future practical use.


Zhan Wentai asked, “Do you like spicy food?”


Jian Luo, still recording, replied, “Yes, Long-ge also likes spicy food.”


Zhan Wentai fell silent for a while.


After speaking, Jian Luo suddenly realized he was unconsciously paying attention to others’ preferences. Well, he was practically a half-boss now, so it made sense to care about these things. On the other hand, it was already evening.


Secretary Jin tried to contact Jian Luo several times, but there was no response. Normally, at this time, Jian Luo would have left the Planting base. Zhan Wentai might have requested for him to work overtime, but even in such cases, Jian Luo would have notified her in advance. Secretary Jin wondered what could be wrong.


She reluctantly called Lu Shifeng. “General.”


Lu Shifeng’s voice came through. “What is it?”


“Well, um…” Secretary Jin hesitated, “It seems that Luo Luo has temporarily lost contact. I tried to reach him several times, but he didn’t respond. Should we try to find him?”


Lu Shifeng furrowed his brows. “Where did he go?”


Secretary Jin had previously checked. “Luoluo should be with the High Priest, as he was there before. But now he’s not answering my calls, and I’m starting to think… he might be upset.”


It’s going to be a cold war!


After all, he had left home in anger but was thinking of making up later.

Chapter 17 – It’s hard to escape the Omegaverse trope!

Chapter 17


During the day, Qu Di had slept too long, so at this moment, he couldn’t sleep at all. He turned over, found his phone, turned it on, and checked the battery, which was at a pitiful 31%. As soon as he powered it up, he saw 109 missed calls and numerous messages, including hundreds of messages on social media apps that were rarely used.


First, he checked the missed calls. Besides mostly unknown numbers, there were only two familiar ones: Qi Shan and his mother. What surprised him was that his stepfather had also called him several times. He had been staying at the police station and had no idea about what was happening outside or the fact that his stepfather had been suspended due to his actions.


He decided to call his mother first. The call rang for a long time before she picked up, and her voice sounded cautious, “Is that you, Qu Di?”




As soon as she heard his voice, his mother started complaining with a hint of tearfulness, “How could you do such a thing? Do you want to kill us? There are people staking out our house every day. Mother is too scared to go to school, and your stepfather is suspended for investigation because of your actions… Why don’t you answer your phone when we call? You’re like a jinx. You brought this on us! I shouldn’t have brought you here in the first place! You’re nothing but trouble, causing all this trouble!”


These words hit him like bombs, and then they ignited around him like a fierce fire. He was at a loss and could only say instinctively, “I’m sorry.”


But his mother wasn’t willing to let him off the hook, “Sorry? What good does ‘sorry’ do? I gave you money to live on your own. Wasn’t that enough? I provided for you, and all you do is cause trouble. I just want a normal life.”


So that was it? He was just a burden. The familial warmth he had imagined before was nothing more than his mother’s way of pushing him away. He had foolishly cherished this meager affection as “maternal love.”


His own mother truly had no feelings for him.


He said in a muted voice, “I’m sorry, Mother.”


But his mother still didn’t relent. She cried even harder, “Zhiping wants a divorce! Can you Qu family people just leave me alone? You’ve ruined my life. Your father and you are both vampires, sucking my blood, and your father forced me to marry him. Now you’re ruining my life again! Qu Di, why don’t you just die?”


Qu Di, why don’t you just die?


Qu Di shivered all over, a chilling feeling surging from the depths of his soul. Those painful memories slowly resurfaced. There was a time when someone had whispered in his ear and said, “Qu Di, why don’t you just die?” It was all because he wasn’t the Alpha his father wanted.


Fear invaded his body, and he felt as if the voice in his ear was a demon from hell, ready to tear his tendons, drink his blood, strip his flesh from his bones, and then spit on him, saying, “Garbage.”


“Stop it…”


He threw his phone against the wall, and the screen shattered. Cracks spread out like spiderwebs. Everything fell silent.


Qu Di felt terribly cold, as if he had been thrown into a ditch in the village on a bitterly cold day. Filthy moss clung to his clean old cotton clothes, and the foul-smelling water gradually soaked his pants.


His drunken father held a whip in his hand, lashing him again and again. It didn’t hurt, but his cherished cotton clothes were ruined. He reached out to protect them, and the whip hit his hand, drawing blood. He couldn’t see his father’s face clearly, only the firecrackers in the background were making loud noises.


He wrapped himself tightly in a blanket, hoping to find some warmth inside, but it was still very cold, and he shivered all over, his limbs stiff.


Shu Yi came in with a cup of milk. Seeing him burying his head under the covers, he noticed a seemingly broken phone lying at the foot of the bed, which he had heard earlier.


He walked over and patted him, “Qu Di, are you okay?”


Qu Di didn’t say anything, but Shu Yi felt him trembling, as if someone were shivering in the dead of winter. He frowned, trying to lift the blanket off him, but Qu Di held onto it tightly, refusing to let go.


“Qu Di, you’ll suffocate like this.”


Qu Di’s voice was muffled, “I’m very cold… I’m really, really cold.”


He kept repeating this sentence, and his voice gradually faded, even though he tried to conceal it. Shu Yi could still hear his sobbing, small, like a little dog licking its wounds and occasionally crying out in pain.


Shu Yi sat down, used a bit of force to uncover the blanket, and indeed, he saw Qu Di curled up, shivering. He looked at him, his eyes conveying a sense of helplessness, as if he were a desperate person clutching at the last straw, begging for help. Qu Di was pleading with his eyes, and his tears fell freely, as if they didn’t cost a thing.


Shu Yi reached out and brushed Qu Di’s hair away from his forehead, asking, “What’s wrong? Is there something you want to tell me?”


Qu Di avoided his eyes, pulling the blanket to hide himself again, but Shu Yi wasn’t going to let him have his way. The two of them struggled over the blanket.


Shu Yi assumed he was struggling because of the recent case and tried to comfort him, “Don’t worry, everything will get better.”


But Qu Di suddenly asked, “Shu Yi, should I even be alive?”


“…” Shu Yi didn’t know how to respond to that question for a moment, but he lowered himself and pulled Qu Di into his arms. “No one should or shouldn’t be alive. There’s no ‘should’ or ‘shouldn’t,’ only ‘want’ or ‘don’t want.'”


“Why… why doesn’t anyone want me?” Qu Di’s voice sounded helpless and lost. He couldn’t understand why, if no one expected him, he had been brought into this world.


“Qu Di, you’re not living for others; you’re living for yourself.” Shu Yi paused, holding him tighter. “And you still have me…”


Upon hearing these words, Qu Di finally calmed down completely. He leaned against Shu Yi’s chest, and the two of them didn’t say another word. But Qu Di felt comforted, and that bone-chilling feeling gradually faded.


With the calmness came awkwardness. Shu Yi didn’t mind, though. He felt that Qu Di had regained his composure, and he said, half-jokingly, “Are you feeling better now? If you don’t get better soon, my back will break.”


Qu Di quickly moved away from his embrace. His eyes were still a little red, but even more noticeable were his ears, which were blushing so much they looked ready to drip blood. Those heated ears were giving away their owner’s thoughts without mercy.


Shu Yi didn’t put Qu Di on the spot; he didn’t mention what had just happened. He simply reminded him, “Remember to drink your milk,” and left, closing the door behind him.


Qu Di patted his cheeks. His eyes were sore, and his head ached. He took a sip of the warm milk. It was just regular milk, but he could taste a hint of something special in it. What that was, Qu Di dared not think.


The next afternoon, Qu Di received good news from Shu Yi. The police had found the mastermind of the recent case and had enough evidence to arrest him.


“Yang… Yang Ji?” Qu Di looked at the official police announcement in surprise. How was Yang Ji involved?


He flipped through the news. Yang Ji had apparently contacted a drug dealer named Guo the night before and conducted a transaction without meeting in person. Guo had left the goods at a certain location the previous night, Yang Ji had paid online, and then gone to pick up the drugs. Now, there were records of their transactions, along with drug matching reports, which all pointed to Yang Ji as the culprit.



Don’t Drink Strawberry Milk: What a twist! The road takes an unexpected turn! Where are all those fans who were jumping around saying this and that? Aren’t you going to face the music?


High Fly Will Kill Me: Shouldn’t some of the “privileged” fans apologize? Now that they’re all quiet? I heard his parents got fired because of this!?


I’m Just Here for the Food: Really? I heard some people sat outside the police station. It’s a stinking fan circle, true to its name.


Wow, the King: Isn’t it funny how they were so enthusiastic before, and now they don’t even say a word? I heard someone sat in front of the police station. A smelly fan circle indeed.


I Apologize: We, fans of Wenguo, hereby apologize to Mr. Qu. This time, it was our mistake, and we caused harm. We will reflect on ourselves and be more reasonable in the future. Please keep an eye on us.


Living in a Seashell: Shu Fei Lei also apologizes for his previous excessive behavior. In the future, he will be more mature in his actions.


Gentle but Explosive: Is this really what humans say? All those marketing accounts are all over the place. They think they’re internet police? Do they still have brains?


Little Rabbit Kid: This thing isn’t his doing. It doesn’t mean all those stories are false.


Just Ignoring You: Are the comments above human words? With a change of leadership at the top, didn’t they almost get sent to the guillotine?


Mickey Mouse 123: You’ve lost your account. [Dab]


Loyal Fans: Go check the water meter.


TRACY: Your account is gone. [Dab]


Eat a Good Meal: It’s a shame to meet you in this way.


How Did You Fail Again: Haven’t you heard there’s been a change in leadership up top? They almost sacrificed him to the gods!


Mi Ershu 123: Your account is gone. [Dab]


Kind Explosive Anger: Your account, please check the water meter.


I apologize on behalf of the Warmth Fans: The Warmth fans sincerely apologize to Mr. Qu. We made a mistake this time, and we caused harm. We will reflect on ourselves and be more rational in the future. Please supervise us.


This entire exchange leaves Qu Di startled. His fans seem to have turned against him, and he can’t help but feel overwhelmed.


“Would you like me to call Siyi to drive you home?”


“No, it’s fine. I can manage on my own. Don’t worry; I’m okay now.” Qu Di smiled and then added, “Thank you for this. I don’t have much to offer you, but if you don’t mind, I’d like to treat you to a meal sometime.”


Shu Yi’s expression suddenly became serious, “Is that your way of offering payment? Well, that might not be enough. After all, I’m a highly priced leading actor. What do you think?”


“You’re right… What do you want, then? I’ll do my best to fulfill your request. How about I write you an IOU… Huh?”


Shu Yi leaned down and stole a kiss, revealing a satisfied smile, “This is your payment. For me, it’s priceless.”

T/N: Hey there! There is plenty more where that came from, so stay tuned! And stay healthy! Straighten your posture, so some stretches and drink some water before continuing hehe~

Chapter 17 – Spirit Embryo Carrying Blood Jade

 Chapter 17


Si Lan inexplicably felt that the little white dragon was angry. He explained softly, “This matter is a long story, but Xie Li is not really my son.”


the little white dragon’s lips twitched, and his two dragon whiskers moved up and down, as if he wasn’t sure whether to believe it.


“Don’t talk nonsense,” Xuyi suddenly lowered his voice and reprimanded the fellow disciples, “If the Supreme Master is watching from the heavens and sees you slandering Master Si Lan like this, he might be angered again.”


Several junior disciples and sisters had never seen Xuyi so angry, and they fell silent, following Xuyi.


Si Lan nodded, and Xuyi’s current demeanor was impressive. Si Lan thought that if Xuyi took charge of the Xuanling Sect, Luyu would be able to relax. Si Lan was about to use magic to sneak away when a female disciple suddenly screamed, “Ah… there’s a big spider…”


“Where is it? Where is it?”


“On… on me… Ah…”


The female disciple patted her body while hiding behind a large rock, and her eyes unexpectedly met Si Lan’s hidden in the shadows.


“…” Si Lan.


“…” Female disciple.


“Ah… help…” The female disciple screamed even louder this time, as if she had seen a ghost, and she jumped and leaped out in fear.


Si Lan never expected that he would be more terrifying than a big spider.


The other junior disciples, thinking that there might be a monster hiding in the big rock, quickly drew their swords and surrounded the rock.


“What kind of monster is it?”


Si Lan had no choice but to step out of the shadows and say, “It’s me.”


“Master Si Lan…” Xuyi quickly sheathed his sword and signaled the other disciples to do the same. “What are you doing here?”


After he spoke, Xuyi saw that Si Lan was currently holding a fish in each hand, and the two fish were still alive and jumping.


“…” Xuyi.


Si Lan also didn’t know whether to throw the fish or hide them, feeling that the night air was filled with an awkward atmosphere, making him want to escape.


He cleared his throat and explained, “I was planning to roast these two fish to satisfy my hunger.”


Xuyi, thinking about what the junior disciples and sisters had just said, seemed embarrassed. He blushed and seemed to want to explain something but didn’t know how to begin.


Si Lan, seeing Xuyi’s expression, could only say, “I’ll go back to roast the fish. You can continue.”


“Master Si Lan…”


Si Lan pretended not to hear Xuyi’s voice and walked away.


Xuyi watched Si Lan leave, regretfully tapping his forehead. How did Master Si Lan always manage to overhear the junior disciples’ gossip?


Thinking about this, Xuyi looked at the junior disciples and sisters behind him and said, “If you gossip again in the future, you’ll be punished according to the sect’s rules!”



Si Lan found a quiet spot, made a fire, and started roasting the small crucian carp. Soon, the fragrance began to waft from the fish.


Estimating that it was cooked, Si Lan picked a piece of fish and placed it on a leaf, handing it to the little white dragon in his arms.


The little white dragon looked at the fish with a cold expression.


Previously, it had returned to the Heavenly Court, searched for information about Jiu Ying, and hurried back to share the news with Si Lan. However, it had overheard the disciples gossiping about Si Lan’s child.


Was that little green-robed troublemaker truly Si Lan’s son? Or had Si Lan given birth himself?


Thinking of this, the little white dragon’s gaze fixed firmly on Si Lan’s abdomen.


It hadn’t imagined that Si Lan possessed such a talent.


Si Lan, seeing that it wasn’t eating, said, “Little one, you’re not still upset about Xie Li not being my son, are you?”


The little white dragon instantly bristled, irritated and embarrassed after having its feelings exposed. It raised its scales all over its body, feeling like thorns poking into Si Lan’s heart.


Si Lan winced and hastily pulled the little creature out of his arms. “Why are you so moody…”


Could it be because it was too young?


Unable to speak or express itself, so it resorted to tantrums?


Si Lan placed the little white dragon on the ground and said, “Xie Li is not my son, but his connection with me runs deep.”


Si Lan himself had not fully understood this matter. According to his mother, when he was born, she found a red bead inside his eggshell while cleaning. She drilled a hole through it and threaded it as a talisman on his wrist.


As he grew, that bead quietly transformed into the appearance of a piece of jade.


He then tied the jade around his waist as a pendant.


One day, while he was in seclusion practicing, he suddenly heard crying coming from his waist. He opened his eyes and found a naked chubby baby, lying on his waist, crying loudly.


And the piece of jade on his waist had disappeared.


To be honest, he had speculated that the red jade might be a gallstone he brought out from the womb, but he never thought that the “gallstone” would turn out to be a chubby baby.


Si Lan recounted this strange story to the little white dragon one by one. After finishing his words, he still felt it was absurd. “After Little Xie Li was born, I used his spiritual sense to check the bloodline of his parents and found the traces of three individuals.”


So, regardless of whether it was two fathers and one mother or two mothers and one father, it seemed like a complicated family drama.


He felt like he had stumbled upon some unspeakable secret, so he cautiously kept it to himself, not providing a detailed explanation of Xie Li’s origins to outsiders. He only said that Xie Li was a jade pendant spirit he found at the foot of Zhuyun Peak. However, he hadn’t expected rumors to circulate outside, suggesting that Xie Li was his son.


In his mind, he couldn’t help but complain that the situation was even more bizarre than a virgin giving birth. Perhaps the only thing stranger than virgin birth was male virgin birth.


Although he had lived in the demon realm for over a thousand years, he had never heard of anyone possessing such an ability.


After hearing Si Lan’s complaints, the little white dragon half-closed its eyes, its expression unreadable.


“Um, it’s really delicious,” Si Lan’s thoughts were quickly drawn back to the roasted fish. He gnawed on the fragrant fish bones, nearly moved to tears.


For the past thousand years, to conceal his identity, he had only consumed divine nectar and jade nectar and had not eaten ordinary human food. Now, even without any seasoning, the roasted fish tasted incredibly delicious to him.


After filling his stomach, he wiped his mouth contentedly and picked up the little white dragon to head back.


In the quiet forest, moonlight poured through the dense branches and leaves like a delicate veil. The interlocking gaps between the branches and leaves seemed like pairs of eyes watching everything that happened in the forest.


Si Lan saw that Quze had not yet fallen asleep and was walking alone into the depths of the forest. His steps were exceptionally light, almost ghostly.


Si Lan didn’t think too much about it and continued walking. However, the little white dragon tugged at his clothes, suggesting that he should follow Quze.


Si Lan noticed the little white dragon’s intent and patted its head, “Little one, my disciple needs to relieve himself. Let’s not intrude.”


“…” Little white dragon.


Why was there such an “innocent” Demon Lord in this world?


When he unified the Five Realms, why did he spare the Demon Realm?


Which spy had told him that Demon Lord Si Lan was of immeasurable cultivation and unparalleled wisdom?


Next time he returned to the Heavenly Court, the little white dragon decided to expose that spy.


Quze walked into the depths of the forest, made sure there was no one around, and set up a barrier to prevent outsiders from seeing what was happening inside the barrier.


The huge snake head slowly emerged, its brown eyes half-squinted, emanating a fierce look.


“Next, find a way to lure him into the Extreme Sound Eight Trigrams Array,” the snake head said.


“Understood,” Quze responded without expression, meeting the snake head’s gaze confidently.


“When necessary, use Xie Li to threaten him,” the snake head continued.


“Very well.”


“Does he suspect you?”


“No, he trusts me completely.”


“Do you feel no guilt about betraying him?”


“What do you mean by ‘betrayal’?” Quze suddenly sneered, and he slowly extended his mechanical right hand. His five fingers stretched and clenched in mid-air, making a difficult fist motion. “This hand was given to me by him. Everything I do now is simply seeking revenge.”


The snake head chuckled hoarsely, “As long as you help me with the final task, I will help you reshape your arm.”


Quze’s eyes flickered slightly, as he seemed tempted by this offer. “You’ve already reshaped my spine, so why do you need the Immortal Box?”


The snake head didn’t move but shifted its gaze toward Quze. “It’s an insignificant matter.”


Was it really insignificant?


Perhaps not.


Opening the Golden Orb Immortal Box might be more important to him than reshaping his physical body.


The snake head changed the subject, “What’s the origin of the little white snake in his arms?” The snake head couldn’t sense the aura of that little white snake, either because it had low cultivation or its power surpassed even the snake head.


Quze answered concisely, “I’m not quite sure.”


The snake head didn’t inquire further, thinking that in this world, apart from the two deities in heaven, whose aura was immeasurable, everyone else was of no concern.


The snake head gradually disappeared into thin air.


Quze withdrew the barrier and stood motionless in the moonlight.


When he returned, he saw Si Lan leaning against a tree trunk, eyes closed and resting.


Most likely, it was his footsteps that had awakened Si Lan. Si Lan opened his eyes, looked at Quze, and softly said, “Rest a while.”


Quze didn’t say anything, settled down next to Si Lan, and began meditating with crossed legs.


After a while, Quze spoke in a low voice, “Supreme Lord, have you ever considered reshaping my arm?”


He thought Si Lan was asleep, but Si Lan responded with a drowsy tone, “I have considered it, but I can’t do it.”


Was it that he couldn’t do it, or he didn’t want to do it?


Clearly, for Si Lan, reshaping an arm was a trivial task, yet he said he couldn’t do it.


Quze chuckled self-deprecatingly.


He didn’t understand why the Demon Lord, who had always claimed to govern the Demon Realm with “benevolence,” had been so cruel to him, severing his right arm.


This Demon Lord, who had always advocated ruling the Demon Realm with “benevolence,” was inexplicably cruel only to him.

Chapter 92 – Who Says Omegas Can’t be as Explosive as Alphas

Chapter 92


Near the stadium of the league competition, someone was also waiting for the match to begin.


With his white hair simply tied back, Bai Chen sat quietly on a lounge chair, gazing at the brilliant stars in the sky. His enigmatic green eyes held a mysterious expression.


Among these stars, perhaps there was one that was his desolate home planet, or maybe it was too far away to see the faint light of that barren world.


Since their defeat in the war against humans, they had been living in darkness.


Bai Chen lowered his head and quietly looked at the sword lying on the table, as if he heard a faint, mournful sword cry.


The bathroom door opened, and a man walked out, running his wet hair through his fingers. He looked at Bai Chen with a half-smile, “Oh, is it because of the last qualifying match tomorrow that you can’t sleep with excitement? Bai Chen, you don’t seem as calm as you look.”


There was a hint of sarcasm in Kang’s voice.


Although they were both warriors, the difference in their talents meant they enjoyed different privileges, which inevitably led to envy.


Bai Chen raised his gaze.


His expression was mild, but his eyes, with their eerie and icy hue, completely stifled Kang’s words.


Kang couldn’t help but pause, and then, because of his own show of weakness, he felt somewhat annoyed. He sneered, “We’ve been assigned the same mission this time. Who is nobler than whom? What’s with this attitude? Instead of showing off to me, I advise you to think about how to complete the mission and bring back the crystal core. The last mission failed, and the Zerg Emperor has given you absolute leniency! You should know that the Zerg Tribe never tolerates repeated failures. Even with your high talent, don’t expect the Zerg Emperor to have more patience with you.”


“Thank you for the reminder.” Bai Chen’s tone was icy, and his gaze fell on Kang’s wet neck with a meaningful lick of his lips.


He didn’t say much, but under the weight of that gaze, Kang felt a chill run through his body. Confronted with the sudden surge of murderous intent, he chose not to provoke Bai Chen any further.


Once you cross that line, you might not see the light of the next day.


Bai Chen seemed to be indifferent to Kang’s resentment, turning back to his original position, lying down to enjoy the night.


The evening breeze was a bit chilly, but it was rather pleasant.


Since their defeat by humans years ago, the Zerg Tribe had been living a life of constant vigilance, biding their time on that desolate planet, all in anticipation of the day when their toxic night crystals would be repaired, allowing them to make a comeback and avenge their humiliation from the Sphera Battle.


Bai Chen was born into a prestigious family, carrying pure blood in his veins. At the age of only twenty, he already possessed extraordinary strength beyond his years, and if everything went as planned, he would be granted a title in a few more years. For many Zerg Tribe members, this was highly enviable, but all of this paled in comparison to the favor he received from the Zerg Emperor.


Just this alone could elevate Bai Chen and his family to heights that other Zerg Tribe members could only dream of.


Unlike most other Zerg Tribe warriors, Bai Chen’s full form was innate, akin to the S-Rank holders on the human side, a one-in-a-million prodigy.


This undoubtedly earned him the trust and attention of the Zerg Emperor.


The toxic night crystals had been damaged for too long, and after over a hundred years of effort, it was now 80% restored. They were eager to see this treasure shine with its crimson light once again, to declare war on those humans who had caused them such hatred, and to wipe away the shame of the Sphera Battle.


However, while on a mission as a space pirate in the Watcher’s island, he encountered a group of unknown merchants who disrupted their plans.


If it weren’t for the fact that causing a commotion would be inconvenient, he should have eliminated that annoying boy that night.


But as luck would have it, he unexpectedly encountered him again when he came to participate in the Bounty League. That golden-haired figure was just too distinctive; he couldn’t be mistaken.


What he hadn’t expected was that the boy he once thought of as a mere pet turned out to be a student of the Imperial Navy. The mystery of that time was completely unraveled.


As if it were the hand of fate, they met again, this time as opponents.


At the thought of their upcoming official match at the arena, Bai Chen couldn’t help but feel a sense of excitement.


Undoubtedly, the mission on the Watcher’s island was destined to be a stain that couldn’t be erased from his life.


Since it’s a stain, then he’ll personally wash it away with his own hands.


Bai Chen never allowed any stumbling block in his path. From birth, he was destined to step steadily towards the highest point.


When their toxic night crystals are completely repaired, and the battle between the Zerg Tribe and humans is waged once more, he will use the thick blood of humans to nourish his beloved sword.


His long fingertips gently brushed over the cold blade, and he could see the faint green blood oozing out. A strange and sinister smile tugged at the corners of his mouth.


The opening ceremony for his beloved sword still lacked a sacrifice, and that guy named Lu Jingning seemed to be a perfect fit.


The pure starlight fell on his face, making him look strangely pale.


In Kang’s eyes, this scene unintentionally sent a shiver down his spine, and he cursed in his heart, “He’s truly insane!”



Lu Jingning inexplicably sneezed several times when he woke up. The feeling of being watched gave him a slight chill down his spine, making him furrow his brow.


However, he didn’t pay too much attention to it. As soon as he entered the waiting area, he headed straight for Lan Yuanzhou with a beaming smile. “Little Zhou… I mean, Lan Yuanzhou, good morning!”


With just this greeting, Lan Yuanzhou was immediately on guard. The previous experience of teaming up with Lu Jingning was still fresh in his memory, and he had to be cautious.


As the saying goes, no good comes from undue flattery.


Just based on this sly attitude, Lan Yuanzhou almost blurted out, “Today is an individual match, and we’re not familiar, so let’s not get too chummy.”


Lu Jingning seemed a bit hurt by his response, “Is our revolutionary camaraderie in battle that fragile?”


He hadn’t mentioned it, but as soon as he brought up the topic of teaming, Lan Yuanzhou’s mouth twitched involuntarily.


Fighting side by side? Leading a bunch of enemies to him and then running away? This was what they called fighting side by side?!


Did he even brush shoulders with him for a fraction of a second at that time?


Lan Yuanzhou’s long, narrow eyelashes lifted slightly, and he maintained an attitude of “strangers, stay away.” “Speak quickly or pass gas quickly.”


Lu Jingning was direct, “How about teaming up again?”


Lan Yuanzhou chuckled, “No chance!”


Lu Jingning, “Are you so heartless?”


Lan Yuanzhou, “With you, can we even talk about sentiment?”


Just afraid that in a matter of seconds, he would be sold and not even know it.


Negotiating with such a firm attitude from Lan Yuanzhou meant that there was no hope for it, and it was a done deal.


Lu Jingning fell silent for a moment, “Don’t regret it.”


Lan Yuanzhou, “Regret what? I’ve never even known you!”


Lu Jingning made a clucking sound and turned to leave.


Lan Yuanzhou had thought that Lu Jingning would pester him for a while, but seeing him give up so easily, he couldn’t help but feel a somewhat uneasy premonition.


That didn’t seem like this guy’s style!


As for Lu Jingning, now that he’s ignored me, in the future, I’ll make sure you can’t even climb up to me!


Not teaming up with me? Wait for it; I’ll show you what a massive “true blissful moment” is!


While the competition hadn’t started yet, Lu Jingning lazily shifted his position and was about to close his eyes for a quick nap.


But before he could relax, he felt an unusual chill creeping up his spine.


This made him abruptly open his eyes and look up, only to find himself locking eyes with someone not too far away.


His heart skipped a beat, and he was instantly wide awake.


Bai Chen’s enigmatic green eyes held minimal expression, but his lips curled up with no warmth, which was enough to confirm for Lu Jingning that the Zerg Tribe had indeed spotted him on that night at the Watcher’s Island.


This obviously wasn’t a good sign.


But Lu Jingning had thought about this scenario and wasn’t too shocked. He just grinned back at Bai Chen.


From this simple attitude, anyone unaware might think that they were old friends who hadn’t seen each other in a long time.


Lu Jingning’s response made Bai Chen feel intrigued and amused. His pupils slightly contracted, and finally, he nodded in acknowledgment from a distance.


Polite and decent.


However, even with this, Lu Jingning still sensed a strong sense of hostility in Bai Chen’s eyes.


He raised an eyebrow slightly and withdrew his gaze.


In usual circumstances, such a clear attitude might have made him a bit cautious, but now they were both in the virtual map. What did it matter if they killed each other a hundred times here? Once they left this map, they would still be alive and kicking as before!


Furthermore, they hadn’t even fought yet, so who knew who would come out on top in the end?


This was like a mental game, and once they entered, the real test would begin. Who would back down first?

T/N: Hey there! There is plenty more where that came from, so stay tuned! And stay healthy! Straighten your posture, so some stretches and drink some water before continuing hehe~
