My Dad Is The Galaxy's Prince Charming Chapter 89
The moment Yao Si stepped into the cave, a gush of cold air washedover her. Even though if was blazing hotoutside, her entire arm went down ingoosebumps.
In order to improve the beginners'training, there would occasionally be gifts in the third district. An encounter with the gift could effectively boost the beginner's mental strength, but that would depend ontheindividual. An encounter with the gift would also bring about a considerable amount of risk for the beginner, so Yao Sihadnever harbored much hope.
Somehowthough, her luck was over the charts. She was actually going toencounter the gift.
The beginner guide mentioned that the gifts were all different, hence she had no idea what it consisted of. As she ventured into the cave, the temperature continued to drop, and the surroundingsturneddarker with each step. She was suddenly reminded of the gigantic bug in the demonic realm. Was there a beast in this cave?
"HeheheSomeoneis here on their own accord," asinister voice said.
The voice was low, frosty. The main problem was however that Yao Sihad no idea where it was coming from.
She couldn't help raising her hand in greeting. "Hi!" With a 360 scan, all she could see was pitch darknessandall she could hear was the drippingof water.
"Why is it another human without spiritual energy?" the voice continued, his tone filled with disgust. Just then, a figure appeared from the darkness. Itwasn't tall but incredibly thin, the bone structure of his arms visibleto the eye. He had on a long robe that covered his face, shielding his appearance.
The instant he appeared, a nauseating rotting stench filled her senses.
"Hello, may I" She was just about to enquire about the gift when the man interrupted her.
He smirked, disregarding her entirely."Forget it, it'll be better without any spiritual energy,justanother soul to fill me up. I guess meeting me was your own misfortune."
"Wait a minute!" What's with this situation? "I'm" Here to collect the gift!
"I'll collect your little gift." Adevilish smile covered his face, and the eerily cold wind becamestronger.
Yao Si felt the temperature drop once more, and it was the same feeling as before in the demonic realm - multipleinvisibleobjects seemedtobecolliding with her body, trying to pull her apart.
Yao Si eye went wide; she nowunderstood the situation.
He He was from the indigenous tribes!
"Ah?" He stilled, the surrounding wind stopping as well."You are resistant to the Soul Devouring Wind!" He started to feel excited, and his maniacally bright eyes went even wider."Great! To think Icould encounter someone with such an amazing external consciousness. I just have to suck your soul for my soul devouring flag to be fully cultivated, hahahaha!"
"Soul eater?" What's that?
Isn't this a little extreme? Where's my level up gift? This was totally not mentioned!
The man lifted his hands abruptly, gesturing weirdly,andthe flag that was floating in midair turned bright red all of a sudden, brightening the entire cave. An enormous suction force came out from within.
Yao Si felt herself getting lighter,herawareness turning unstable, struggling within her, attempting to escape into the flag.
Her heart sank, understanding the situation.
F*ck! Is this the gift? Since my awareness cannot be exerted, they got an indigenous person to force it out?
This method was indeed effective in allowing her to experience what it felt like to have her awareness exerted, but the main point...
Once her awareness was out, how was it going to go back?
He was obviously an indigenous personand nota NPC of thecelestials. After taking her consciousness, there was no way he was going to release it!
What kind of gift is this?Yao Si face-palmed internally.
Celestials' advertisementswere indeed unreliable, especially since they promised many thingsfree of charge.
This was bad!
Yao Si felt her insides churn. She had been too rash, entering this placeall by herself. It was really bad. What couldshe donow?
She bit down on her lip, struggling to retain her consciousness, preventing it from escaping while stumblingbackwards.
"Trying to escape?" The mansmirked, sensing her movements."With such a precious material at hand, do you think you can leave?" He snapped both palms together, murmuringa chant.
A bright glow struck Yao Si,andthe next instant, she felt herself paralyzed,the weight of a step increasing by a few million fold.
Yao Si's heart lifted, he had finally used an ability!
The next moment, a familiar surge of energy erupted within her. Itsent a pipinghotsensation throughout her body,which was instark contrast to theeerily cold air in the cave. The heat chased away the frost inside her,andthe heaviness of her body changed into lightnessand swiftness as herpower gushed out.
With just a step, her entire body rushed forward like an arrow, away from his restriction. Just like a flashing shadow, she glided through the cave, heading forward at full speed. She could barely be seen,until...
She hit a wall!
"That f*cking hurts..." She grabbed onto her headwhilekneeling onto the ground. When she touched the back of her head,there was indeed a bulgethere.
Why was a speed ability awakenedat this time?Just because she was paralyzed at that moment, the counter to it was speed? This kind of ability was useless to bloodlings who were already blessed with physical qualities that were out of this world! The main problem was just that she wasn't familiar with it!
"You are indeed someone with an ability!" the man said, having frozen for a moment."Let's see where you canrun to." He waved his armsonce more,andthis time, several black spiritual swords appeared. They allseemed to have eyes as they headed toward her.
Yao Si's heart sank. With her newly gained lighting speed, she hid within the cave, her figure becoming yet another shadow.
The spiritual swords continued to chase after her continuously, but all she could do was utilizethe unfamiliar speed ability to change her directions, avoiding the attacks.
The swordsheaded to the left, she escaped to the right, casually punching the man in the middle - then proceedingto hita wall.
The swordsheaded to the right, she escaped forward, casually punching the man once more - then proceeding to hit a wall.
The sword headed forward, she escaped backward, casually punching the man in the middle -thenproceeding to hit a wall.
Loud banging sounds rangin the cavefor a time. After about ten minutes, multiple wounds had formed around Yao Si' head. At this rate, it was soongoing to be filled with buddha-like bumps.
The manwas almost at his end as well. Under her relentless attacks, his plight was similarto hers;they both ended up looking like pig heads.
The cave started to gain an odd sense of liveliness due to the noise ofcombat,andthe two opponents with pig-like swollen heads glared at each other as they panted uncontrollably!
"F*ck." Pant,pant. The mancaressed his face as hepanted continuously."How dare you hit my face!"
"What's wrong with hitting you?"
He is speaking as though it was an easy feat! Ouch,ouch,ouch,ouch,ouch.It was so painful! Why did that pig head want to make things difficult for this pig head?
"You-you- If I don't defeat you today, I won't be worthy of my Best Demonic Cultivator title!" The manglared at Yao Si as thoughhe'd beenforced to his wit's end. He raised his arm then anddid a weird gesture. The red glow within the cave intensified, and with a violent swing, a huge gush of dark energy erupted from his body.
Bone-chilling temperaturespread through the cave,and cold wind swept toward Yao Si. Italsobecame even harder to see in the already dark cave.
Was thisgoing to be a strong move?!
Yao Si'sheart sank. Even though she wasn't sure what the black air was, it was definitely something bad. She instinctively turned to run;she had to escape! Without wasting a moment, she turned around and bolted.
Just thenshe smashed right into somethingthat felt soft against her face, and her entire consciousnessseemed to have been caught.
A spiritual light flashed, and she understood whathadhappened - shehadsmashed right onto the Soul Eating flag!
She had actually headed right into the flagall by herself!
A certain someone who had prepared for his finishing blowwas left speechless.
And so was Yao Si.
F*ck this speed ability!
After half a minute...
The man in the cave summoned the Soul Eating flag with mixed feelings. His tone of his wordswas a mixbetween joy and perplexity."Heh, serves you right for going through this calamity, but your initiative indeed saved me some energy."
He kept his dark energy, returning the cave back to its original brightness. He then glanced at the ground suspiciously as though trying to find something. After a while, he frowned."Where's the corpse?"Did the body perhaps get sucked into the Soul Eating flag together with the soul? HisSoul Eating ability must have risen to another level.At that thought, his face brightened withjoy, and with a badly bruised face, he returned to the depths of the cave with his flag.
Outside the cave...
Gu Shucheng glanced down at the time, counting the minutes silently.
It was currently five hours, twenty-seven minutes, thirty-six... thirty-fivethirty-four seconds... from Her Highness'dinner time.
Yao Si felt her body become light, as though all her weight had disappeared. It was just as how she'd felt when she had first entered the Galactic Web. She could distinctively sense her awareness leaving her body,barely feeling its presence,yetshe could stillsense everything around her.
It looked like a fog was floating towards her... Was it made up ofhumans?
Her heart clenched, and her eyes went wide. Was sheall right?
"Heh, you're awake!" a mocking voice asked with a scoff."Another one is here."
A white ball of fog suddenly appeared before her, floating around like a cloud.
"What-what are you?" Yao Si jumped backwards in shock, but just as she was about to lift her hand, she felt a layer of fog around her. Instinctively, she lowered her headand discoveredanother ball of white fog. "What the f*ck!"
Where's my body? Why is it just fog below me?
