Mu Qingfeng and Mo Shanshi stared at each other. From their eyes, one could see shock and disbelief. Yet this was no longer important as Fang Zhengzhi had already stood up and stood in front of the Space-splitting Demon God.
This was more than sufficient!
“Let’s go!” Mu Qingfeng shouted to Mo Shanshi, After looking at the two Gates of God, he finally decided to head downwards with Mo Shanshi.
“Trying to escape? Naive!” Monster Emperor Baizhi immediately gave chase when she saw Mu Qingfeng and Mo Shanshi escape.
“Mother, let them go.” Yun Qingwu’s voice could be heard as she shook her head at Monster Emperor Baizhi.
“Not giving chase?” Monster Emperor Baizhi understood Yun Qingwu. However, she was curious as to why Yun Qingwu made such a decision.
“The Holy Region is not big. Where would they be able to escape to? It is more important to have him stay with us.” Yun Qingwu pointed at Fang Zhengzhi as she spoke.
“This brat?” Monster Emperor Baizhi frowned. Deep inside, she did not agree with the decision Yun Qingwu had made.
After all, it was a fact that Fang Zhengzhi would stay with them.
How could Fang Zhengzhi possibly escape in the presence of the Space-splitting Demon God? What is the purpose of staying behind for someone who was doomed to die?
Monster Emperor Baizhi did not understand.
However, with regards to the current situation, she did not oppose straightaway. As what Yun Qingwu had said, the Holy Region was not big and Mu Qingfeng and Mo Shanshi could not possibly escape to a place too far away. Moreover, how would they be willing to leave behind the Holy Region that took them thousands of years to build?
“Alright, we shall spare their lives for now.” Monster Emperor Baizhi finally nodded and stopped giving chase. She changed to the human form and stood beside Yun Qingwu.
The white furry long dress glistened under the sun. Although she had a dazzling appearance, as compared to Yun Qingwu, she exuded an allure from deep within.
It was really beautiful when the two lady stood beside each other.
However, Fang Zhengzhi clearly did not have the mood to admire their beauty. His attention had been on the Space-splitting Demon God who was standing just four or five steps in front of him.
In reality, he was closer to Yun Qingwu than to the Space-splitting Demon God.
However in terms of strategy, the best strategy would be to capture Yun Qingwu and use her to threaten the Space-splitting Demon God.
However, Fang Zhengzhi did not do so.
It was not because he did not want to, but because he knew that he could not do it. When he saw Space-splitting Demon God’s attack on Yan Yin, he knew it would be impossible for him to capture Yun Qingwu.
Furthermore, even if he did successfully capture Yun Qingwu, how would he be sure that the Space-splitting Demon God would abide by his commands?
Quoting the words of the Space-splitting Demon God…
For a demon who came from the real battlefield, killing someone meant peanuts for him. Who knew what would the so-called loyalty and camaraderie mean to him?
Therefore, as compared to asking for his own death, he would rather pretend to be calm.
At least he had gained some advantage from making use of the bet between Yun Qingwu and Space-splitting Demon God.
“Are you ready?” The Space-splitting Demon God was somewhat impressed as he looked at Fang Zhengzhi who exuded an extraordinary killer aura.
“Do you have wine? I need it to calm myself down!” Fang Zhengzhi shook his head.
“Haha, I am not interested in watching you drink in front of me.” The Space-splitting Demon God smiled. As someone who came from a real battlefield, he knew exactly what his opponent’s attitude was.
Even an ant had the potential to kill an elephant by biting it.
Therefore, as he spoke, he gradually raised his right hand and did not give Fang Zhengzhi any chance to play around.
“Hold on.” As the Space-splitting Demon God raised his hand, Yun Qingwu’s voice could be heard. “I bought a bottle of ‘Apricot Spring’ from the Northern Mountain Village when I was there sometime ago. I heard that the recipe came from you. I still have half a bottle with me now, do you want some?”
“Of course, I would definitely want some ‘Apricot Spring’.” Fang Zhengzhi smiled and walked towards Yun Qingwu slowly.
The Space-splitting Demon God frowned and looked at Fang Zhengzhi. He raised his right hand again but eventually put it down.
On the other hand, when Monster Emperor Baizhi saw Fang Zhengzhi approaching, she felt worried and without hesitation, she stood in front of Yun Qingwu.
“Rest assured mother, he will not kill me, at least not now,” Yun Qingwu said to Monster Emperor Baizhi as she shook her head gently.
“Oh?” Monster Emperor Baizhi was slightly confused. Even with her intelligence, she did not understand why Yun Qingwu was so certain that Fang Zhengzhi would not kill her.
“He needs me to help him delay some time.” Yun Qingwu pointed at the sages and disciples who were escaping.
Monster Emperor Baizhi frowned again.
She had obviously noticed how the people beneath had left in all directions like flood water after Mu Qingfeng and Mo Shanshi chose to escape.
The Yin Yang Hall, Heaven Dao Pavilion, Fu Xi Valley, Ling Yun Tower and the remaining factions of the Great Xia Dynasty had all retreated from the mountain.
This was within expectations.
However, Monster Emperor Baizhi did not understand why Yun Qingwu had no intention to make use of such a good opportunity to give chase. Instead, she intentionally allowed Mu Qingfeng and the disciples to leave.
Since Yun Qingwu did not give an explanation, Monster Emperor Baizhi did not probe further. In fact, she could not ask for the reason why in such a situation.
The breeze was chilly and Yun Qingwu’s expression suddenly turned awkward.
That was because when she touched her neck, she realized that the pendant on her neck was no longer there.
“The wine is with you,” Yun Qingwu spoke after being dazed for a moment.
“With me? Oh… yes, it’s with me.” Fang Zhengzhi was also shocked for a moment but reacted quickly and touched his Heart Protection Mirror in front of his chest.
Then, a jug of wine appeared on his hand. Two words, ‘Apricot Spring’, was scribbled on the jug.
Fang Zhengzhi lifted the cork of the bottle and took a whiff at the opening of the wine bottle, giving a satisfying look.
“Naturally-brewed wine is the best!” Fang Zhengzhi exclaimed as he took a glimpse at the situation beneath.
He could see that Dao Xin and Dao Hun had already successfully brought Yan Xiu and the disciples of the Yin Yang Hall down the mountain peak of the Heaven Zen Mountain.
Besides the disciples of the Yin Yang Hall, the disciples of the Heaven Dao Pavilion, Fu Xi Valley and Ling Yun Tower had mostly escaped too.
“I initially thought that auntie Qian Yu… would stay back,” Fang Zhengzhi sighed. He had always thought Qian Yu would be the one who was most likely to stay.
That was because as compared to Mu Qingfeng and Mo Shanshi, Qian Yu was the only one apart from Dao Hun who had suffered the least injuries.
Yet, Qian Yu left.
She left with the disciples of the Ling Yun Tower, Emperor Lin Mubai and Ping Yang.
When she left, she took a glance back at the direction of the top of the Tree of God, though Fang Zhengzhi was not sure if she was looking at the two opened Gates of God or himself.
The tea turns cold when people leave, the breeze of the mountain added to that coldness.
Yet, there were a few people who did not leave immediately. Instead, they stood at the bottom of the Tree of God silently and glanced at the sky.
Out of the few people, Chi Guyan and Wu Yuer were the most eye-catching.
One was in pink and the other in black. The two figures looked like they were two blooming flowers in the bushes, it was impossible to not notice them.
They were not standing together. Instead, they were at least twenty steps away from each other.
The pink dress on Chi Guyan swayed, the blood stains looked like burning red flames.
As compared to Chi Guyan, Wu Yuer had much lesser blood stains on her body. The black muslin dress accentuated her slim figure and added to her allure.
Both of them did not leave, or at least they had not leave yet.
Of course, apart from Chi Guyan and Wu Yuer, there were a few others who stayed. One of them was the Heavenly Oasis Saint and the other was Yan Qianli.
The disciples of the Shadow Sect had left, yet the Heavenly Oasis Saint and Yan Qianli did not. Perhaps they were waiting for Wu Yuer to leave together with her.
This was not surprising.
However, what made Fang Zhengzhi slightly surprised was the fact that Nangong Tian had not left too. In fact, none of the sages of the Nangong Nobles left.
Therefore, Nangong Mu who was lying on the floor was also not carried away.
Fang Zhengzhi started laughing out of the blue.
He did not expect Nangong Tian, a guy who could kill his biological son in order to achive his motives, to stay in such a situation.
Was it for Nangong Hao?
Or was it because Nangong Tian had not given up?
If it was the latter, Fang Zhengzhi was really impressed by Nangong Tian’s determination. The determination that remained even though he knew that there was completely no hope.
Fang Zhengzhi took a deep breath, then he placed his mouth near the opening of the wine bottle and the rich and spicy ‘Apricot Spring’ flowed into his mouth.
Gulp… As he took a sudden sip of wine, he felt a burning sensation flowing from his stomach.
Unlike the fruit wine he brewed himself, this ‘Apricot Spring’ was much more stronger. It was usually meant for the hunters to get rid of the cold in their body.
Yet, that sip made him feel extremely satisfied.
“How boring for you to drink alone.” As Yun Qingwu said this, she reached out her right hand and her face was as calm as water.
“That’s right.” Fang Zhengzhi nodded and took another sip. Then, he put on the cork and tossed the wine bottle over to Yun Qingwu. “What are you going to do with Nangong Hao after releasing Mu Qingfeng?”
“Are you trying to save him?” Yun Qingwu caught the wine bottle with one hand and used the other to open the bottle. Much to the shock of dozens of monster kings, she took a sip directly from the wine bottle.
This scene definitely shocked the monster kings as they had always had the impression that Yun Qingwu was a prim and proper person.
Since when did she ever drink from the same wine bottle as another person?
“Since I am going to die soon and the Gate of God of the Realm of Monsters and Demons are opened, under this circumstance, if I managed to save Nangong Hao, perhaps he would become the next hope for humankind,” Fang Zhengzhi said casually.
“Hmm, you make sense.” After completing her sentence, Yun Qingwu tossed the wine bottle to Fang Zhengzhi again and said, “But why should we leave another hope for humankind?”
“So, there are times when Yun Qingwu would be scared too?” Fang Zhengzhi caught the wine bottle and took another sip before tossing it back to Yun Qingwu.
“Do you think prodding me works?”
“Not sure, but I would still try it anyway.”
“Before you die, do you… have any last wishes?”
“I haven’t married and spent a night with my wife.”
“Hmm, it does fit your personality. However, I did not say that I will grant you your wish, hence you can just think about it.”
“Yun Qingwu is indeed Yun Qingwu.” Fang Zhengzhi nodded and shook the wine bottle in his hand. After discovering that it was empty, he smiled bitterly. “We have finished the wine and the people who wants to leave have already left. Let’s begin.”
“Wait,” Yun Qingwu spoke again.
“You changed your mind? Reluctant to kill me?”
“Your confidence feels more like shamelessness. Let me ask you one last time, do you really want to save Nangong Hao?” Yun Qingwu bit her lips unknowingly as she spoke.
“It’s just a casual remark. If I had a choice, I would rather save myself.” Fang Zhengzhi gave a bright smile.
“Haha.” Yun Qingwu smiled like a white lotus flower that suddenly bloomed. Under the sunlight, it felt as if it had just emerged from the soil. “Fine, I would grant your wish and not kill him for now. It doesn’t matter to me as I can also enjoy myself in the days to come.”
As Yun Qingwu spoke, dim light flashed across her eyes like a meteor that fell past the corner of her eyes.
As this light flashed past…
Nangong Hao who was standing quietly nearby suddenly sank down like a giant stone that lost its gravity.
“Indeed, ‘godly charm, the skill of stealing souls’, came from you.” Fang Zhengzhi looked at Nangong Hao and proved his hypothesis.
“Hmm, you are right. However, I think you should… keep a lookout for your back.” Yun Qingwu nodded her head lightly.
Fang Zhengzhi actually did not hear the later part of Yun Qingwu’s sentence. He had already felt a gust of coldness surging towards the back of his neck before Yun Qingwu had said it.
“Son of a b*tch, how dare you spring a sneak attack?!”
