If Li Yunmu allowed Miss An to die, the doors to the Ancient Lands would open, but his consciousness would never find peace for the rest of his life. Could there be another way that did not require the sacrifice of Miss An?
A moment ago, the mysterious woman had said that if he wanted to see Crow Soul Valley reinstated to its original state, he had to allow her to sacrifice her daughter to resurrect herself!
Li Yunmu was somewhat at a loss. Although the mysterious woman's words might not have been completely true, she was someone from Crow Soul Valley and would thus have a better understanding of the secrets hidden around her.
But if Li Yunmu really ignored Miss An and allowed her to be sacrificed, he would find it difficult to calm his conscience.
"An Ning, mother wants to use you as a sacrifice, but you mustn't blame me by any means!"
The mysterious woman moved to devour Miss An, who had lost consciousness once more.
Li Yunmu still couldn't accept her being used as a sacrifice in front of him. He attacked and sent the mysterious woman flying away.
"Don't touch her! Tell me, is she really your daughter? If she knew that her mother was acting in such a manner, do you know how bitterly disappointed she would be?"
"Her life in exchange for the lives of people of Crow Soul Valley, how is it not worth it? You think that as her mother, I don't feel pain? But what other choice do I have? I can do nothing!"
The mysterious woman almost went crazy. Crow Soul Valley, which looked completely desolate, had been the entrance to the Ancient Lands for hundreds of thousands of years, but some time ago, it had been destroyed.
The people of Crow Soul Valley had been entrusted with the burden by the gods of Ancient Lands, but their territory had turned into ruins.
The mysterious woman suddenly began to explain what had happened to Crow Soul Valley. "From the time she was born, my child was viewed as a disaster. Who would be ruthless enough to abandon their own child? Yet for the clan, I did so! I had no other choice!"
"You abandoned your child, but still were unable to protect Crow Soul Valley?"
The mysterious woman's expression filled with desolation. "It was completely unexpected! A complete catastrophe! Who could control a natural calamity? Crow Soul Valley turned into what you see because of an unexpected disaster! It destroyed the whole place."
Li Yunmu looked at her with calmness. "Natural disaster? Don't tell me that the gods of Ancient Lands won't assist you and help stop the natural disaster from reaching Crow Soul Valley?
"It is an entrance to the Ancient Lands. Everyone knows that once Crow Soul Valley is destroyed, no one will be able to reach the Ancient Lands. Don't tell me that you've never thought about this problem?"
Li Yunmu's words brought an unwelcome thought to the mysterious woman, and she violently shook her head.
"Impossible! You think that the gods of the Ancient Lands would want to destroy Crow Soul Valley? Impossible! They have been protecting Crow Soul Valley for generations! They would never attack us!"
"Perhaps one of them had an ulterior motive!" Li Yunmu said indifferently. "Don't tell me you truly intend to sacrifice your life to return Crow Soul Valley to its original state?"
That mysterious woman's voice grew cold. "Don't stop me! Isn't your aim for coming to Crow Soul Valley to reach the Ancient Lands? If Crow Soul Valley cannot be restored to its original state, you can eternally forget about reaching the Ancient Lands."
A hint of hesitation appeared on Li Yunmu's face. His gaze fell on Miss An's body, which had turned into the key to open the Ancient Lands.
"I won't allow you to injure her. Even if I can't enter the Ancient Lands, I won't allow you to hurt her."
Finally, Li Yunmu made his choice. If worse came to worst, he would find another way to enter the Ancient Lands. There simply had to be another entrance.
Seeing Li Yunmu's confusion, the system spoke to him in a calm voice. [Don't bother with this issue. There is a better way. If Miss An was made the master of Crow Soul Valley in place of her mother, she could return Crow Soul Valley to its former glory.]
Li Yunmu was astonished. "How should we do this? I don't want to watch blankly while Miss An dies."
[First, wake Miss An up and help her break out of that woman's control. After that, ask her to use her consciousness to devour that woman's consciousness. She would then become the master of Crow Soul Valley.
[Both of them are from Crow Soul Valley, so they can devour each other's consciousness. The reason why that woman wants to be resurrected is because she feels that her daughter doesn't know the method to restore Crow Soul Valley. Tell her that she doesn't need to worry about it. I have a way!]
After hearing the system's words, Li Yunmu calmed down and said with a snort to the mysterious woman, "Why can't you allow your daughter to become the master of Crow Soul Valley? Why should a live person be sacrificed for a dead like you? This is clearly not fair to her!"
"Too pesky, drop dead!"
With those words, the mysterious woman suddenly charged toward Li Yunmu. He had clearly hit her weak point.
At some point in time, additional runes had appeared on the divine cyan blade, and with every strike, a layer of golden light would surround the woman.
"I want to live! I want to live!" she screamed while baring her teeth at him.
Li Yunmu sneered at her. "You aren't her mother. You have only received her mother's memories!"
The mysterious woman's body quivered, and she returned to her original shape while Miss An's mother body fell on the ground. It did not move, but there were tears falling out from her eyes.
"Ha ha ha ha…. That's right, I am not the clan's elder, but I don't want to die! I know the method to restore Crow Soul Valley! As long as I can devour An Ning, Crow Soul Valley will be mine!"
With a cold look at the deranged woman, Li Yunmu struck without the slightest hesitation. The woman disappeared like smoke with a miserable shriek.
"Ah, ah, ahhhh!"
Li Yunmu frowned and looked at Miss An who seemed to be recovering her consciousness. She wavered and staggered a few steps.
Fortunately, Li Yunmu was close and supported her. Then, he faintly said, "Your coming to the eastern domain wasn't in vain. It can be considered as you returning to your home."
But Miss An had lost consciousness once more without hearing anything that Li Yunmu said.
However, the spell formation in front of their eyes gradually disappeared. The instant the mysterious spirit vanished, everything returned to normal.
The woman was still lying on the bed. Based on the spirit's words, she should be Miss An's mother.
