Jiang Chao Ge and the Spirit Weapon - Chapter 52
Jiang Chao Ge kicked the door open and strutted out .
The guards outside the door rushed in front of them . The old lady tapped her cane and said heavily: “Let them go . ”
Jiang Chao Ge held Zhi Xuan in one hand and the sword in the other, leading Yu Ren Shu and Ruan Qian Xiu through the crowd . The three of them were all slim and graceful with an extraordinary demeanour . That calm and unmatched power allowed them to walk out of Fan mansion under the gaze of everyone .
Jiang Chao Ge whispered to Ruan Qian Xiu: “What happened to you in Fan mansion? Did you meet Chen Xiang Yu? How did you get caught?”
Ruan Qian Xiu sent him a meaningful glance: “We’ll talk after we leave . ”
The three left Fan mansion and returned to the inn with a group of soldiers following behind .
Zheng Cheng caught Ruan Qian Xiu’s scent and ran out of the inn dragging a wounded body . Ruan Qian Xiu rushed over and hugged his head, stroking his mane a few times, then returned him to the weapon to heal his wounds .
Long Xiang closed the door and asked: “You actually came back so fast . How did you free them?”
“Pack your things . We must leave immediately . ” Yu Ren Shu expression was dark, “Xiao Xue is currently on his way to Ying City . ”
“What?!” Zui You yelled: “Hurry we must escape . ”
Jiang Chao Ge grabbed Ruan Qian Xiu: “Chen Xiang Yu… . ”
“I went to find him but he said I shouldn’t have come to find him . He suspected that his own identity had already been exposed to Fan clan and they were monitoring his every move . As expected I was ver quickly discovered by Fan clan people . However he gave me something . ” Ruan Qian Xiu fished out a wooden box from her clothes and gave it to Jiang Chao Ge, “He said before we arrived, he’d already been notified of our situation . This item is for you . ”
Jiang Chao Ge opened the box . There was actually a spirit pill inside and also half a dragon fish jade pendant . He picked up the jade pendant, had a look and muttered: “What does this mean?”
“He said someone with the other half of the pendant will come find you . ”
“There is no time to think about that now . ” Yu Ren Shu gave him a push, “Hurry . ”
Everyone went out of the inn . Tian Rong gave a roar, his tall body instantly expanding . This fierce amber coloured rare beast startled all the soldiers horses in neighing non stop, retreating frantically . Zui You followed closely behind, returning to his true form . There was a clear contrast between a elegant and beautiful nine tailed fox and the fierce and unruly Zheng but they were equally frightening . The opportunity to see two Heaven grade rare beasts at once was one that was hard to come by for ordinary people . In spite of that, the soldiers had already sealed off the entire street . But there were still many residents who climbed on the roof to watch secretly . Ying City began to seethe with excitement in the early morning .
Everyone jumped onto Tian Rong and Zui You’s back, flying over the crowd of people and running towards the city outskirts .
Zui You asked in a panic: “That Hun Dun is really coming? Is it arriving soon?”
Long Xiang rubbed his ears and comforted him: “Life and death are ruled by fate . Don’t worry . ”
Zui You yelled: “Fool . I’ve long since been dead . No matter what happens they can’t kill me . I’m worried about you!”
Long Xiang said proudly: “I’m not afraid of death . ”
Jiang Chao Ge thought, I’m afraid . He yelled against the wind: “I’m the one Xiao Xue wants to kill . If we are really caught up with, you guys can just run . You’ll just be throwing away your lives if you stay anyway . ”
Yu Ren Shu said gravely: “If it really comes to that, we can only say goodbye . ”
“Fuck, don’t you think you’re too ruthless?”
Yu Ren Shu snorted: “Relax . No matter what happens, we’ll fight to the death . ”
Jiang Chao Ge felt somewhat moved . Yu Ren Shu was a noble and honest person, his words directly portrayed his thoughts . These words definitely wouldn’t be all talk . Although the wouldn’t allow these people to remain and court death with him, he was more than satisfied upon hearing these words . While he came to those world on a stroke of bad luck, at least he met a few wonderful friends . It could be considered a worthy death .
Tian Rong and Zui You ran as fast as they could . Yin City was very quickly left far behind them
Zhi Xuan cheek pressed against Jiang Chao Ge’s face and whispered: “I can hear the sound of Xiao Xue . ”
Jiang Chao Ge’s heart sank: “Then can he also sense you?”
“In my current form he can’t sense it, but it won’t be hard to track us from Ying City . With Xiao Xue’s speed, he’ll definitely catch up to us within a hundred Li . ”
Jiang Chao Ge looked back at Ying City that’d almost disappeared behind them and made a decision internally . He yelled: “Tian Rong, Zui You stop!”
Yu Ren Shu and Long Xiang looked towards him . Jiang Chao Ge repeated his words .
Tian Rong and Zui You’s footsteps halted .
Jiang Chao Ge stood up and said calmly: “Companions, let us seperate here . Zhi Xuan said Xiao Xue will catch up to us within a hundred Li . We won’t be his match no matter what . Since he is only after me, there is no need to drag you all down to court death . ”
Long Xiang immediately said: “Big Brother Jiang, I accepted your money, I should naturally put my life on the line for you . I won’t leave . ”
Yu Ren Shu said: “Chao Ge, on our journey from Tian Ao City to here, I’ve already considered you a brother* . Back then when I was met with slander and was wanted, you didn’t abandon me and leave . Today you are facing danger, I also won’t leave . ”
Ruan Qian Xiu looked at him with crossed arms: “I’m still counting on you to succeed and help me take revenge . I won’t let you just die here . ”
Jiang Chao Ge was stunned frozen, momentarily speechless as if he had a fishbone stuck in his throat . They had originally only come together by chance, each having their own goal in mind . Honestly speaking, he had a overly suspicious frame of mind and had never truly trusted someone from start to finish . In order to return to his own world, he was using everyone including Zhi Xuan . Yet at a crucial moment they were willing to die with him . Dying together sounded easy . Movies and stories would often portray brothers* risking their lives for each other . But after mixing in the right and wrong paths for several years, Jiang Chao Ge had not seen many that would stand by each other in a life or death crisis . Looking at everyone’s sincere and resolute gaze, he felt ashamed for the first time . He coughed lightly: “With your words, I can lay down my life without regret . But let’s be rational here . Even if you stay you can’t help me . Zhi Xuan could have a way to save me . Instead you will be a burden if you stay . Let’s arrange to meet at Kun Lun Fairylands in a month . If I don’t appear after a month, don’t wait for me anymore . ”
Yu Ren Shu said disapprovingly: “Chao Ge, if we leave how can you escape?”
“That’s right big brother Jiang . You can’t even summon Zhi Xuan right now . ”
“I obviously have a way . With you guys here, you might actually prevent Zhi Xuan from utilising it fully . ” Jiang Chao Ge smiled, “You guys are really something . Relax I won’t die . I haven’t returned to my own world yet, how could I die here? We agreed to go to Kun Lun Fairylands together to find Yin Chuan, I definitely won’t break my promise . But there is really no benefit if you guys stay . Instead you might distract Zhi Xuan . Listen to me, leave first . We’ll meet again at Kun Lun City . ”
The three looked at each other with equal dismay but were hesitant . On this journey, they had become used to listening to Jiang Chao Ge’s plans because Jiang Chao Ge’s mind was the most flexible . But the plan this time was extremely abnormal . If Jiang Chao Ge really died here today, they wouldn’t be at ease for the rest of their lives .
Zhi Xuan looked at them coldly: “What are you frozen for? Hurry and go . I can protect my people . Rather I don’t want to care about you guys . ”
Yu Ren Shu asked back: “How do you plan to protect Chao Ge?”
Zhi Xuan spoke fiercely: “I have my own way . I won’t tell you . Hurry and go!”
Yu Ren Shu looked at Jiang Chao Ge with a frown, wanting to speak but hesitated .
Jiang Chao Ge smiled: “Really . You go . Xiao Xue will catch up soon . We agreed to meet again at Kun Lun City after a month . No one is allowed to break this promise . ”
Yu Ren Shu hesitated for a moment and finally made a decision: “Alright, no one is allowed to break this promise . ”
Long Xiang’s childish face showed worry for the first time: “Big Brother Jiang… . ”
Jiang Chao Ge stroked his head: “Long Xiang, leave with them . Without me, you listen to third prince . I will definitely reunite with you are Kun Lun City .
Jiang Chao Ge jumped off Tian Rong’s body while carrying Zhi Xuan . He raised his head to look at the three of them and yelled: “Everyone, see you at Kun Lun City!”
Yu Ren Shu looked at him with a deep gaze: “See you at Kun Lun City!”
Tian Rong and Zui You bother lowered their heads to look at him, then raised their heads and dashed towards the west .
Jiang Chao Ge’s gaze followed them into the distance and sighed .
Zhi Xuan jumped down from his hold . The moment he touched the ground, he’d already transformed into adult form .
Jiang Chao Ge glanced at him and forced a smile: “There’s only us left . ”
“I’m more than enough . ” Zhi Xuan looked towards the distance, “Xiao Xue’s scent is getting stronger . ”
“What kind of scent is it?”
“It’s filled with the smell of blood . ”
Jiang Chao Ge remembered the hell like Da Liang City and felt his heart tremble: “Zhi Xuan, can you really protect me?”
“You don’t believe me?”
Jiang Chao Ge smiled: “I believe you . ”
Zhi Xuan held his waist, thin lips resting on his nose: “How could I let you die? You might even be my mate . ”
“I already said I wasn’t . ”
“What you say doesn’t count . ”
“Yin Chuan has never met me . Does his words count?”
“So we’ll see when we meet him . ” Zhi Xuan kissed from Jiang Chao Ge’s nose to his cheek then moved to his neck . There was a warm pleasant smell from Jiang Chao Ge’s neck . It made one very comfortable .
“Uh, if… . I’m just saying if… . Yin Chuan says I am… . . then what?”
An excited light flashed across Zhi Xuan’s eyes: “Then I’ll immediately mate with you . ”
Jiang Chao Ge stretched his neck away, avoiding Zhi Xuan: “Don’t talk nonsense . I’m male . ”
“I don’t care . ” Zhi Xuan was so excited he almost wagged his tail, “I want you to give me a den of little Qilins . ”
“Don’t talk nonsense! I can’t give birth . ”
“If you are my mate, then there’s a possibility you can . ”
“I’m not and I also can’t . ”
“Only Yin Chuan’s words count . ”
“Is Yin Chuan your… . ” Jiang Chao Ge wanted to say ‘is Yin Chuan your father?!’ but didn’t dare and forcefully swallowed it back down .
Zhi Xuan seemed to become increasingly excited at the thought . He couldn’t help hugging Jiang Chao Ge and began to gnaw and kiss his cheeks . He only let go when he’d truly kissed Jiang Chao Ge’s lips to a bright red .
Zhi Xuan licked his lips in satisfaction: “Weren’t you curious how I’m going to protect you?”
Jiang Chao Ge took several deep breaths: “What?”
Zhi Xuan looked towards the distance: “When Xiao Xue arrives, you’ll find out . ”
Jiang Chao Ge suddenly felt slightly uneasy: “What do you plan to do?”
“I can appear in my true form without relying on you . ”
“What?” Jiang Chao Ge said surprised: “Why didn’t you say so before?”
“Because I wouldn’t use it unless it was the last resort . ” Zhi Xuan stared at Jiang Chao Ge fixedly: “Appearing in my true form by burning spiritual power, every minute and second I’m in my true form, what is being consumed is my cultivation . ”
Jiang Chao Ge froze .
Zhi Xuan stroked his cheek, deep eyes appearing to suck him in . He smiled demonically: “To fight against Xiao Xue, at least a millennium of cultivation will be wasted . If you aren’t my mate, I’ll have lost a lot . ”
Jiang Chao Ge grabbed his hand: “Is there no other way?!”
“No . ” Zhi Xuan hugged his waist, lips pressing against his ear and said slowly: “If I waste a millennium of cultivation just to save a human like you with a lifespan of a fe decades, then from now on, regardless of whether you’re my mate or not, you have to become one of my people . ”
Jiang Chao Ge’s mind was in complete shock . The ear that directly heard Zhi Xuan’s words suddenly became burning hot . Half his body began to heat up too .
In the distance, a crimson figure dashed towards them . The earth shook, the clouds changed colour . A thick wave of demonic spiritual power flooded Jiang Chao Ge’s heart . He felt that the air was suffused with the heavy scent of blood . It made breathing difficult and fear grow .
In a blink of an eye, that mountain like ancient rare beast, Hun Dun, had already appeared nearby . Zhi Xuan stood in front of Jiang Chao Ge, looking at Xiao Xue coldly, not retreating a single step .
Xiao Xue’s body shrunk rapidly . That ferocious rare beast disappeared and was replaced by a tall man floating in midair . He had a head of long curly crimson hair . That curly hair was like red seaweed . It seemed as if one would never escape if they got caught within it . His features were demonically pretty like the Ghost of Envy from hell, lips as red as blood, gaze as deep as the sea, full of the smell of death . He held a beautiful little girl in the crook of his arm . It was precisely the maiden of Ming Yin Association .
Xiao Xue smiled slightly: “Zhi Xuan, this time Ren Wang’s not here to interrupt . I can play properly . ”
Zhi Xuan said haughtily: “That’s right . This time I’ll let you enjoy it to your heart’s content . ”
Brother*/兄弟- this doesn’t mean brothers in the traditional sense . It’s moreso like a close friendship between two unrelated people . Kinda like when you would say that you and your bestie are like actual brothers or sisters . From now on if brother appears with an asterisk beside it, it means this definition of brother .
Damn… . What happened to Zhi Xuan the selfish brat? He’s gonna sacrifice his cultivation for Jiang Chao Ge uwu (///▽///)
