Looking at the red flamed beast, I poked Chu Kong’s arm and whispered: “You mean, you want to go fight this big fire ball?”
“If not, are you going to?”
Chu Kong glanced at me once.
“Now you know how much risk xiaoye needs to take. So later remember to use all your wisdom of this lifetime to quickly steal the stones……”
“I know, I know! Can that mouth of yours not always be so dissatisfied with me, “I interrupted him. “I’m also not stupid. If you die, I’ll become a widow.”
Chu Kong blushed. He still wanted to say something, but the flamed beast below us has awakened by our movements. He looked up and his throat made threatening sounds. This flamed beast really made the demon that we saw a few days ago seem like a kitten.
Chu Kong turned serious. He walked and stood in front of me. A fierce murderous energy made the flamed beast immediately quiet down.
The moon and stars are at the back. I followed the moon and the stars to hide in the shadows. I rushed to find a convenient place to go down the mountain and to hide myself really well.
The flamed beast is a sensitive animal. When he looked up, flames got out of his deep throat. His roar teared the sky. I covered my ears and felt that my heart is stuffed.
In a split of a moment, the flamed beast went into the sky. I saw a mass of flames rushing straight to Chu Kong.
I silently say take care in my heart. While the flamed beast is attacking Chu Kong, I sneaked into the cave. The stones in the cave are in disorder. I look left and right, but didn’t see the pure, white clean stone.
The sound of the battle above came into my ears. The flames looked like fireworks during a feast. I couldn’t see Chu Kong’s figure clearly. I gritted my teeth and walked deeper into the cave. I need to hurry. The flamed beast is an immortal beast. If he gets killed by it, maybe he wouldn’t even have the opportunity to go to the netherworld. I really can’t be a widow.
I was still deep in thoughts, when I suddenly looked up. I saw that not far away another thing flashing a white light. My heart felt happy. I hurriedly went to it. One glance at it; it wasn’t the white stone that I’ve been searching, but two long hairs. Its two little flamed beast that hasn’t formed fire yet.
Two little guys looked at me with watery eyes, while they blinked. My heart flicked. I hesitated for a moment. I haven’t had the time to put my hands on them when suddenly the mouth that hasn’t even formed teeth called out. It sounded as if I’m dismembering them.
The sound of the battle suddenly stopped.
Cold sweat slid down on my forehead. I stiffly turned around. The big fireball in the sky is glaring at me. His feet moved and in a blink of eye, he is rushing towards me. Chu Kong whipped fiercely and bound the flamed beast’s foot.
I hardened my heart and took out the fan that Zihui gifted. I read the spell and violently waved with the fan. A big wind came. Those two guys have been rolled away like two little balls. Sharp screams can be heard.
I walked to the back of the cave and saw a ground full of white stones. I didn’t need to touch them to feel the clean energy. This is certainly the fluorites. I pulled out the bag that I prepared and neatly picked the stones.
I was thinking that today we can return triumphantly when I felt something hot around the corner. I turned and looked.
“Dad, that person is here.”
I haven’t been able to think about that in such a long while. There are children, there’s a mother then certainly there will be a father! Chu Kong led the mother away; how will the father endure this loneliness……..
So from the north of the cave, another more rapid huge flamed beast rushed towards me.
I closed the bag, read a spell and ran. But the burning feeling from behind is getting closer and closer.
Chu Kong’s shout seemed like it came from the other end of the horizon: “Throw the stones! Withdraw!”
My brain didn’t have time to understand his words when an intense heat swallowed me. I subconsciously pulled out the immortal cover to cover myself. But the father seemed really dissatisfied because I hit his children just now. A roar sounded in the sky. The three hundred year old immortal cover broke like ceramics. From behind came a hot tearing pain. The moment before I fainted, what my mind thought of is…….
Chu Kong, you’re about to become a widower.
The world turned black like when I was just a cloud. No soul, no feelings. Time, getting old, the circle of life and death; in my eyes they have no significance. Later, Yue Lao converted me. This move must’ve been done after he was drunk. I became a fairy with little qualified achievements. I have no spiritual power and no system of learning. If I seriously think about the three hundred years that I watched the door for Yue Lao in heaven, every day felt the same.
When did it begin to change……
It seemed that when the red clothed young man barged in, I no longer live a day the same as yesterday. He let me know that life can be so wonderful.
The flame whirring sound never stopped. I opened my eyes with much effort and looked at the scene before me. I foolishly froze.
Doesn’t matter if it’s a person or an immortal; in the space where time flies, there’ll always be some things that even if you glanced at them once, will leave a heavy imprint engraved in the mind.
No matter how many years has passed, whenever that page is turned, the images will come back as new as ever.
At this time, Chu Kong’s back carved a timeless heavy imprint on the back of my mind.
In the burning cave, the grunts of the flamed beast can be heard. Chu Kong stood in front of me like a barrier, cutting out a safe region for me. His appearance didn’t look an ounce cool or chic. His hair is scattered. His whole body is soaked in blood. His left hand is hanging weakly, like it has been broken.
I didn’t know for how long I fainted. I can’t imagine the scene of Chu Kong fighting with these two flamed beasts. I only know that he has always been in front of me, guarding me like a real hero.
I moved my body. I wanted to get up, but the pain in my back made me lay back while groaning in pain.
Hearing my groan, the flamed beasts became more restless. Their situation isn’t that optimistic either. One is lying on the floor like its dying. The other one has many wounds on its body.
“Can you still read a spell?”
Chu Kong didn’t look back. With his back to me in a tired and hoarse voice which still is calm he asked: “How far can you run?”
I silently measured my ability. I shook my head: “Can run, but the flamed beast will be certainly faster than me.”
Chu Kong was silent. Timely, the flamed beast shouted. It seemed like he prepared himself for the last combat. He stood up and rushed toward us.
Chu Kong put the crimson whip on his chest. He sang a spell. The whip changed into a sword. The sword was really red like it’s soaked in blood.
This is the first time that I knew that his whip can also be used like this.
Chu Kong held the sword. His whole body emitted an immortal energy. He didn’t look back and said: “When you spot an opportunity, run. These two animals won’t be able to catch up with you. Hold the stones. Remember to go fill the hole.”
What about you……
I didn’t need to ask these words; I can already guess his mind. He made up his mind to fight to death. But with this death, nobody knows if he can reincarnate again.
“I……don’t want to be a widow.”
Chu Kong heard my speech. With some surprise, he turned around.
Smoke formed on my body, making the entire cave full of white mist. Even the flames on the flamed beast have been extinguished for a moment.
Chu was furious: “Stupid thing. Not allowed to transform into your real form! Do you really want to be grilled?!”
When he finished saying those words, I’ve already transformed into my real form. I turned into a mass of clouds and wrapped Chu Kong. I flew to the sky. I didn’t fly fast. Besides, I dragged a long string of old clouds.
The flamed beasts below couldn’t see their opponent because of the smoke. They were furious. A fireball flew towards me. Because I was without a shell, he couldn’t hurt me. But he dried a lot of the mist on my body.
Dawn’s light passes through Kun Wu Mountain before it sprinkled on the earth. Sharp cries can be heard from the cave of the little flamed beasts. They are presumably hungry.
The flamed beast roared a few times at me, but he didn’t come after me.
I flew with the wind and floated in the sky. It’s been a long time since I’ve such a feeling of freedom.
“Hey! Are you alright?”
Chu Kong’s head drilled out of the clouds, while he loudly asked me.
I couldn’t speak. My body went to below.
In fact…..I’m really not alright……
The smoke cleared. Once again, I turned into a human. Without the power of an immortal, I can only fall straight down. My back is tearing in pain. My heart felt really unbearable, making me feel a pain like being baked.
Chu Kong pulled me into his arms. The wind blew my hair. Chu Kong patted my face while scolding me: “Now you know it’s unbearable! Say to not change to your real form, but you just don’t listen! Did it feel comfortable being roasted as a cloud fairy?!”
His voice has been broken by the wind. I also shouted hoarsely: “If I didn’t see that you’re nearly dying, why would I do so?! Ungrateful thing!”
“Who is the ungrateful thing?! Do you think I saved you to let you sacrifice yourself?!”
I was paused and then said: “Got it! Is it interesting fighting for this?! Fill the hole. After filling the hole, go back and get married!”
I didn’t blog for five days, because I was sad from a break up. I broke the relationship, but it still feel like I’m the one being dumped.
Letting go of feelings is really hard, maintaining a relationship is also hard. But I realized it’s time to let go. Freeing him is freeing myself.
