Chapter 57 – In the midst of the burning pain, Yuan Jue felt soft and cool spiritual energy flowing through his meridians (2)
Ruan Qiuqiu, who had a cognitive block to her husband’s ability, thought his current fragile state was indicative of his prior ability. Thus, she was distressed about using up the fiend core for herself. She had no idea that before the gray wolf had gotten seriously injured, he had been far stronger than that arrogant lion demon, Lu Ziran.
If Yuan Jue knew that his little wife thought he was so weak, he would definitely overthink things, but he couldn’t hear anything right now or see Ruan Qiuqiu’s conflicted expression.
His memory was stuck on that winter night when he had fallen in the snow. His entire body was racked with pain.
It wasn’t like simple pain from his physical injuries. The pain came from the depths of his demon core. It felt like he was being ripped apart and swallowed bit by bit.
He never had much close contact with anyone, so he was especially sensitive to any contact. But right now, he was in so much pain that he didn’t even feel that Ruan Qiuqiu was tightly holding his hand.
The black spots were spreading so quickly on the wolf’s body that it seemed as if they were going to become a veined pattern soon. Ruan Qiuqiu couldn’t care anymore about how valuable the fiend core was. Holding Mr. Gray Wolf’s hand in one hand, she tightened her hold on the fiend core in her other hand. She closed her eyes.
She had thought of an idea and wanted to try it.
Ruan Qiuqiu absorbed the pure spiritual water energy from the fiend core and guided it through her meridians. Bit by bit, she circulated the spiritual water energy until it was condensed at her dantian. After waiting until the spiritual water energy had changed into her mutated water energy, she transferred a small strand of the energy into Mr. Gray Wolf’s body. She didn’t dare to transfer too much energy.
She opened her eyes and observed Mr. Gray Wolf’s condition.
His long eyelashes were trembling, and his eyeballs moved. Although he didn’t open his eyes, his thick eyebrows didn’t seem as tightly furrowed as before. The previously frantically spreading black spots had also slowed down.
This method seemed more efficient than directly feeding him healing water.
Ruan Qiuqiu sighed in relief. After confirming this method was effective, she was no longer conflicted about using up this valuable fiend core. Holding the fiend core in one hand and holding Mr. Gray Wolf’s big hand in the other, she frantically absorbed the spiritual water energy in the fiend core and changed it.
In the midst of the burning pain, Yuan Jue felt soft and cool spiritual energy flowing through his meridians. Little by little, it spread to his limbs and bones and suppressed the dark energy that was born in his blood vessels.
The spiritual energy lingered in his body and alleviated his pain. However, he didn’t have strength left and couldn’t sense anything.
Ruan Qiuqiu knew that Mr. Gray Wolf was very weak. From the hideous wounds on his body to how the spiritual energy she was giving him was only enough to stop the black spots from spreading further, she could clearly see his predicament.
Ruan Qiuqiu gritted her teeth. Enduring the pain in her dantian from over-cultivating, she continued changing the spiritual water energy into a usable form to fight against those black spots.
This process lasted about half an hour. By this time, Ruan Qiuqiu felt pain in her meridians too. The black spots on Mr. Gray Wolf’s body, which seemed like it was from fiend energy, were finally defeated and slowly retreated.
However, Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t cheer up when she saw this.
The black spots on Mr. Gray Wolf’s body had only retreated. They hadn’t completely disappeared, and the wolf still had a fever.
