Chapter 174 – Do you want to take a gamble? (2)
Grandma Ruyi slightly raised her eyes to look at this child, who hadn’t taken long to calm down, analyze, and come to a determination after finding out the truth. She appreciated her even more and didn’t point out the little gaps in logic of Ruan Qiuqiu’s analysis. “Take a gamble on what?”
Ruan Qiuqiu took a deep breath. “Take a gamble on Yuan Jue and my future.”
Grandma Ruyi looked at her with a serious expression. Should she cooperate by voicing her agreement or smile?
Grandma Ruyi squinted her eyes. “Oh? But Grandma doesn’t think there’s any future between you and him to speak of.”
Ruan Qiuqi took her time to ask, “Grandma Ruyi, can you still absorb spiritual energy after you entered your fiend transformation period?”
Qing Ruyi froze in surprise for a moment. Soon after, she blinked and answered, “Grandma didn’t have the conditions to come into contact with spiritual energy stones during that period. So if you want to persuade me because Yuan Jue can absorb spiritual energy, then you can give up on that idea.”
Ruan Qiuqiu tried again. “Were you able to control your demon power enough to fight off level 3 demons during that period?”
Grandma Ruyi touched her chin. “That I wasn’t able to do.”
Ruan Qiuqiu secretly sighed in relief and continued her unremitting efforts. “Grandma Ruyi, you said my ability is very special. Would you be willing to let me try to clear the fiend energy that your master left in your body?”
Grandma Ruyi’s expression showed that she was a bit tempted.
She stretched her hand out. Her expression became a bit fierce as a layer of red fiend energy rapidly filled a finger. In the span of two seconds, it caused her right finger to rot and bleed.
However, Grandma Ruyi seemed as if she wasn’t in any pain. She didn’t even wrinkle her brow.
Ruan Qiuqiu gritted her teeth. Without wasting time, she drew out her mutated water ability and wrapped it around Grandma Ruyi’s finger.
The fiend energy in Grandma Ruyi was much stronger than the one in Yuan Jue’s, so she was surprised to see that it was easier to cleanse and heal.
Ruan Qiuqiu’s full attention was on Qing Ruyi’s finger, and she did her best to mobilize the spiritual energy in her body. Sweat beaded on her forehead.
Without her noticing, Qing Ruyi’s gaze had softened.
Actually, what Ruan Qiuqiu said today wasn’t new information to her. Brother Mo, who said he wouldn’t accept her, but didn’t really mean it, had already analyzed this with her last night.
She had already decided from the start to not hurt Ruan Qiuqiu, but she hadn’t expected that she would do this.
Perhaps, she really should take a gamble. The only prerequisite was that Yuan Jue was worthy of Ruan Qiuqiu’s efforts.
Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t know how long she spent. By the time the fiend energy on Grandma Ruyi’s fingertip had completely disappeared, she had completely exhausted the spiritual energy in her dantian.
Ruan Qiuqiu’s face was deathly pale. She had overdrawn on her energy. Her vision went black, her legs felt weak, and she fell.
Qing Ruyi stretched out a willow branch to support her. She softly sighed. There was amazement and relief in her voice. “Okay, Grandma will take a gamble.”
Sweat beaded on Ruan Qiuqiu’s forehead. She forced herself to sit up. Her voice was somewhat hoarse. “… Grandma Ruyi, is there somewhere where I can find a lot of spiritual energy stones?”
Her cultivation and Mr. Gray Wolf’s recuperation required a lot of spiritual energy stones.
