Volume 2 Chapter 16 Offering a sacrifice to you
Happy new year everyone!! I hope everyone had an awesome countdown and have a few new year resolutions they will aim for, mine will be to finish translating one of the two novels this year!!
Yan Qiyue’s eyes lit up like a lightbulb. Bashfully keeping close: “Is it that kind of heat? Ah Qing don’t be scared. With me here, we can quickly go behind the thickets and resolve this.”
“What are you thinking?” Shao Qing indifferently shot him a glance. Then she closed her eyes recalling her past experience: “It has an energizing effect and some stimulating effect. The flow of power and blood is circulating a lot quicker. It’s a good thing, but we don’t know if there’s any side effects.”
Yan Qiyue was extremely disappointed. He thought that today he could finally eat a meal after fasting for so long…..
After being disappointed for a while, he brought his energy back up and asked Qiao Mo: “Can we gather and bring some back?”
Qiao Mo naturally heard what Shao Qing said, that stimulation ** side effect wasn’t much, but if they were able to create a pill that was even better than the invincible pill, then it will be the biggest reaping.
Waving his hand, immediately a few superhumans took our some jars and began collecting some liquid from the flower. After Shao Qing instructed them, they all put on see through gloves to avoid getting infected by the liquid.
After all Shao Qing was a zombie. For her it might just a little stimulation, but for these superhumans, it could be……
When the superhumans went over to the flowers preparing to collect the liquid, Shao Qing suddenly heard a weak rustling sound. Before she could react, she saw a greenish black shadow rocketing out bringing along the falling petals. As it came towards them, it opened its big bloody mouth.
It was a python that was as thick as a bucket. With one bite it swallowed an unprepared superhuman whole. Shao Qing and them could see the shape of its body as it went down the snake’s throat and became a bulge that stuck out.
In an instant the bulge was digested. After all the digestive abilities of a variation animal has also strengthened by quite a lot.
The other alarmed superhumans immediately reacted. All of them utilized their abilities immediately wanting to kill the snake. If they were quick, they might even be able to rescue the unfortunate man who was swallowed whole. Yet the scales on the python was sturdier than they had imagined. No matter if it was a fireball or earth thorns, there wasn’t even a trace left behind.
The big python was very smart. Knowing that it had met its goal, it immediately tried to flee. It had no intention of staying behind at all.
Shao Qing looked at Qiao Mo. He appeared to have no interest in helping out at all, so she decided to give them a helping hand. Vines came soaring out, breaking apart the flowers and causing petals to fly everywhere, and wrapped itself around the python.
Cunning and slippery, regular vines definitely would not be able to restrain it. But Shao Qing’s vines had special sharp thorns. The moment the vines wrapped around the python, it fiercely stabbed into its flesh.
The skin that the superhumans spent half a day fighting but couldn’t even mark was easily punctured by the thorns.
The python who originally wanted to run away, in a moment was detained where it was. Those superhumans were delighted and immediately threw themselves over. An earth elemental who was quite smart knowing that its earth thorns couldn’t puncture the pythons skin stabbed at its eyes, blinding it.
When the earth thorn stabbed into the pythons eye, the python let out a painful snarl. Shaking its head and tail, but no matter what, it wasn’t able to shake off the numbing vines that had restrained it.
Strength users then pressed down its head. Different colour superpowers covered the sky as they landed, directly drowning out the python. But the fatal attack was the earth thorn that had penetrated through his eye socket and into its brain.
Once the python died, they promptly cut open its stomach. It’s a pity that the superhuman inside had already stopped breathing. His arms, legs and face were corroded by the gastric acid revealing his bones.
When they went back to see the brilliant red flower, it was as if they were looking at Man Tuo Luo that blooms by the side of the river of forgetfulness. This flower was extremely pretty and alluring, but it probably hides countless dangers inside.
Returning back to harvesting the juice, they were very careful. Even with that being the case, two superhumans still received injuries.
In fact, they only dared to harvest the ones at the side, not daring to go into the field. In the end they only got three jars worth.
Yan Qiyue was a bit reluctant to part with such a large field of flowers. Looking at his tiny jar, his legs couldn’t move.
All of this were exquisite experimental material. If he were to just give up like this, his heart was unwilling. Yet he knew, if they were to go deep into the field, the possibility of a lot of superhumans not returning was high.
It was while Yan Qiyue was being reluctant about leaving, Shao Qing suddenly went over. Yan Qiyue’s expression immediately changed. Grabbing Shao Qing: “Ah Qing, what are you doing?”
Shao Qing gave him a suspicious look. Wasn’t the one who was reluctant to depart Yan Qiyue? Seeing his pitiful expression, her heart softened for him.
“I don’t want it. This is enough.” Being stared at by Shao Qing, Yan Qiyue felt his heart repeatedly being kneaded into a soft dough. He lightly spoke: “Let’s go….” No matter how precious that material might be, it couldn’t compare to Shao Qing.
“I’ll be fine.” Shao Qing patted Yan Qiyue’s shoulder, then give him a modest smile. Ordinarily, her face was always straight, it was quite rare to see a smile. Now being able to see it, it made Yan Qiyue’s heart skip a beat.
In spite of everything, he stared blankly as Shao Qing walked into the field of flower. Going inside, once Shao Qing lifted her hand up countless vines soared into the sky, forcefully clearing a road. This was when everyone discovered that underneath these beautiful flowers were piles of bones.
Some were left behind by animals while some were left behind by people. It was because of the skeleton underneath that these flowers could bloom and become so beautiful.
Treading on the bones, she directed the vines as if they were straws and collected the juice from the flowers into jars. Once in a while there might be variation animals that tried to mount a sneak attack, but was easily whipped away.
Qiao Mo concentrated on Shao Qing and added the words dangerous to her name. Her strength was not low, her character was unknown, and she was capable of taming Yan Qiyue. She definitely wasn’t simple.
With this thought, Qiao Mo couldn’t help but look at Yan Qiyue who seemed as if he was in heat.
On his face it seemed as if he was in heat but also completely dissatisfied.
Qiao Mo covered his eyes. I’m going to become blind…..
Shao Qing quickly collected a heap of liquid, then she flung it over to the Xiao Di* to carry. Before they entered the forest, they had found a hidden place to stop the caravan. After all wanting to drive a car not mentioning a caravan through the forest was completely impossible.
* Xiao Di = little brother but she means it as kind of a friendly way to say younger guys and not really her little brother
The people who had a relationship with the superhuman who died at the beginning were somewhat unsatisfied. Looking rather young, he widened his eyes and glared at Shao Qing asking: “It’s obvious you had the ability to acquire those liquids. If you had done this at the beginning, no one would have died. Why didn’t you make a move right from the start?”
With regards to this rather naive youngster, still rather forgiving in the way she replied, she gave him a vile smirk: “Why do you think that if you have the ability that you have to do it? Following what you are saying, does that mean if I have the strength and ability I should be going everywhere saving people? Become some shining goddess?”
“No….. I don’t mean that….” The youngster urgently replied stammering: “It was obviously… obviously right in front of your eyes… that comrade…..”
“Ah…. I didn’t want to make a move.” Shao Qing’s expression in an instant became cold. She had no obligations at all to do anything. Just like earlier, she had only harvested the liquid for Yan Qiyue’s sake. It wasn’t something she had to do but something she wanted to do.
“You……” The youngster’s eyes became a bit red. But it wasn’t because of hatred, instead it was him feeling a bit wronged. If Shao Qing had made a move, then his friend wouldn’t have died.
Speaking with good intentions, she said: “If because I have the strength and I had to go do everything and face countless of dangers, would that be fair?”
The youngster tried to refute her, but finally realized that if he had Shao Qing’s ability and was willing to do it then that was his wish. If Shao Qing didn’t want to do it, then that is Shao Qing’s choice.
He had overstepped his boundaries.
