Venerated Venomous Consort Chapter 1869
The figure then rose and hit forcibly on the rock that he sat on. The rock did not shatter right away. Instead, a hole appeared. He kept the box away in the hole and performed a spell to seal it.
Gu Xijiu watched in awe as the scene passed before her eyes. She took one step closer in order to recognize the shadow’s face. One step later, the white shadow disappeared from sight.
Gu Xijiu stood her ground and heaved a sigh of relief. The hallucination lasted longer this time, about four minutes or so. Was this a sign of improvement? She took another step forward and realized something; it might be more than just a hallucination.
Usually, there would be two characters in all the images that she had seen before. Although she could not see their faces clearly, she could almost tell that the woman must be a representation of herself.
The hallucinations that she used to have were the events that she had gone through personally, the ones that had been unfortunately forgotten. This one, however, was different. There was only a shadow throughout the entire vision.
The vision could be a real event, not just a hallucination. It could have been captured by some interactions of magnetic fields. Gu Xijiu was aware of the possibility of such occurrences.
When a storm raged in the past, some old houses would suddenly display the signs of the people who had previously lived in the house. By a strange combination of circumstances, the rare sighting was captured when the lightning hit the wall and accidentally recorded a small piece of the ongoing event. Under the same circumstances, the same sighting would be played again like a rewind.
Was it happening here, for what she had just seen? Her heart started to throb anxiously. If the vision was true, the box could still be in the rock. Gu Xijiu turned and stared fixedly at the huge rock from a distance. It was the rock that had been hit by the white shadow.
Quickly, she took a huge leap towards the rock and paced around it, trying to find the correct angle. Once the spot was located, she started to split the rock open.
The rock was far more solid that she thought it would be. She used an ordinary sword to split the rock, but it could not even cause a small crack on its surface. Gu Xijiu tried using different weapons, but none of them worked. However, the golden ruler emerged from her storage bag eagerly, jostling for prominence.
Gu Xijiu felt a surging hope. Quickly, she got a grip of the ruler and aimed directly at the rock.
“Bang!” There was a sound of a huge impact. The golden ruler bounced back, leaving the rock perfectly untouched. How could it be so solid? It seemed to be even tougher than a diamond!
Gu Xijiu frowned, obviously in disbelief. She saw it with her own eyes, how the white shadow split the rock open simply with a punch. Why didn’t her weapons work? Was the white shadow’s strength very much stronger than hers?
In skepticism, she clenched the ruler tightly and tried once more. However, there was a sharp pain on her palm like she had just been bitten! She let go of her grip and found a bloody wound on her palm. It seemed like the ruler had cut her flesh open. Blood was oozing out from the wound and slowly dripped along the edge of the golden ruler.
The golden ruler failed to cut the rock open. Instead, it slashed her flesh open.
She tried to stop the bleeding, but something on the rock caught her attention. When her blood touched the surface of the rock, it did not evaporate despite the raging fire. Slowly, it continued to flow.
She decided to keep her blood flowing. The blood flowed in an assigned pattern on the rock. Slowly, the rock presented itself in the shape of a box amidst the stirring blood.
