Chapter 76 – Even light would get tired if it encountered creatures that were too dark (1)
He was going to lose his wife soon.
Yuan Jue didn’t know why he used that word, but it felt as if a cold wind swept over him when he thought of that possibility. That feeling felt so oppressive and painful that it felt hard to breath.
His demon consciousness was getting depleted. As the image grew blurry, it froze on Ruan Qiuqiu’s thoughtful and serious expression. Yuan Jue pressed his pale lips together as his world plunged into darkness again.
He didn’t know what he should do right now or what he would do after Ruan Qiuqiu discovered the truth. Overcome with panic, he waited for Ruan Qiuqiu’s judgement. It felt as his body was encased in ice.
At the cave’s entrance, Ruan Qiuqiu was extremely nervous, but that didn’t stop her from trying to lightly shake Mo Yu and ask him what was wrong.
After a brief panic, Ruan Qiuqiu laid Mo Yu flat on the ground. Holding the small cup that was less than half-filled with healing water that she had just condensed, she opened Mo Yu’s mouth and fed him the water.
Once all of the healing water was drunk, Mo Yu gradually stopped coughing up blood, and his face became slightly rosy. However, he was still unconscious.
Little Yu’s eyes were closed, and his hand was clenched around the old bone stick.
Ruan Qiuqiu checked the breath under his nose. After confirming that Little Yu’s breathing was gradually stabilizing, she finally sighed in relief.
She used her mutant water energy to check why Little Yu would suddenly faint. He had looked healthy to begin with, and he had also drank healing water before coming here.
Ruan Qiuqiu furrowed her brow as she carefully controlled the amount of energy that she was slowly putting into Mo Yu.
As soon as she sensed the result, she rowned. There was actually a trace of fiend energy in Mo Yu’s body. If she hadn’t used mutant water energy to check, there was no way she would have found out. The mutated water energy from the water that Little Yu had drank was resisting and slowly clearing away the fiend energy from his body.
Not only that, she discovered that Mo Yu’s body was very weak, far worse than his outer appearance would suggest. There were many areas in his body where his meridians were very weak. It was because of this that the faint fiend energy could cause him so much pain.
As for why fiend energy would enter Little Yu’s body…
In addition to him being susceptible because he was weak, it was probably also because he had touched the animal skin that Mr. Gray Wolf had been using.
Ruan Qiuqiu’s gaze fell on the blood-stained animal skin that had fallen onto the ground. Her eyes were full of guilt and self-blame.
This happened because she had been negligent.
She clearly knew there was a lot of fiend energy in Mr. Gray Wolf’s body, and it made sense that the stuff he used might get contaminated by the fiend energy. And yet, she had carelessly brought it over to Little Yu to use.
Compared to the amount of fiend in energy in Mr. Gray Wolf’s body, the amount emitted by his body was actually very little, and it didn’t seem to come from the fiend that Mr. Gray Wolf had killed.
That fiend energy was very special and hard to detect. She only slowly noticed its unusualness after helping Mr. Gray wolf suppress it a few times.
Ruan Qiuqiu bit her lip and blamed herself even more.
Even after she had noticed the fiend energy, she hadn’t cared about it because she knew that it couldn’t hurt her. Even when it got onto her body, it would automatically be removed by her mutant water energy.
Ruan Qiuqiu looked at the scattered items on the ground and sighed. She wryly laughed, patted Mo Yu’s head, and comforted herself with the thought that Mr. Gray Wolf was fortunately unconscious. Otherwise, if he knew that he had unintentionally hurt someone, and it was a weak little boy too, he would probably blame himself more than she was blaming herself.
If that awkward and stubborn gray wolf Tianluo knew about this, he would be so upset.
Although they hadn’t known each for long, Ruan Qiuqiu had already figured out gray wolf Tianluo’s personality for the most part.
The first time they met, he had looked frightening, but in reality, he was just a wolf pup silently eating snow.
She had brought him back into the cave when he fainted, and he had saved her that night when she had needed him the most.
The first words he said to her was “stay away”, and it was followed by “one meter”.
In the past, she hadn’t known why he had set that requirement and thought it was because he didn’t like her or that he didn’t like to be touched, but now that she thought about those words in light of her new knowledge and came to the conclusion that her original guesses were wrong.
