The Cultivation Master’s Blackened Disciple (61)
“Shifu, I know you don’t like me.”
He said quietly.
Bai Weiwei: Truly knowing one’s own limitations.
Seeing the indifference she didn’t know how to hide in her eyes, he sneered.
“Unfortunately, you and I, master and disciple, will be together for life.”
The array was activated.
The sky was ablaze with a golden light.
Ning Yishu said loudly, “I, Ning Yishu, am willing to be forever bound with Bai Weiwei in sacred matrimony. With the heaven and earth as the medium, and all living things as witness, let my soul be my offering, to live and die as one.”
One by one, these oaths triggered the array.
Bai Weiwei felt as though she were the backdrop. As Ning Yishu finished reciting his vows, he continued by himself through the marriage ceremony.
She was trussed up like a pig and thrown into the center of the array, unable to move.
System: “Something’s wrong with this array.”
Bai Weiwei: “It’s not the same in the cultivation world. Dual cultivation partners branding themselves with a mark is like marking pork on sale with a quality assurance stamp.”
At most, Ning Yishu’s array was just a bit more complicated, and they couldn’t divorce.
It was just as well that they couldn’t get divorced. He would feel more secure, allowing her to brush up the favorability.
The system was silent for a while, as though rummaging through something.
Suddenly, its tone turned grave. “I’ll take Ning Yishu’s lungs1, ah. This ancient array really can lock the soul.”
This was the first time Bai Weiwei had heard it speak so seriously.
“You can’t bind your souls. I’ll break the chain for you, quickly go and do him, ah.”
Bai Weiwei: “Do? No, how many life points do you need to break the chain?”
The system exploded. “This time I’ll pay, it’s free, quickly go and stop the soul-locking array.”
Bai Weiwei’s heart was tired. “Why do you want to stop it? I haven’t OOC’d, ah.”
The system went crazy. “The problem is not OOCing, but the special array Ning Yishu created. It can lock a system’s ability to travel through space. You really will bind your soul with him. You won’t be able to leave even after sixteen months pass.”
Bai Weiwei: “…”
This broken system. Are you on wholesale for fifty cents in the countryside? How could your return trip be locked by someone from a world plane?
This went beyond being trash.
Ning Yishu came to her side. Her body was swathed in red, and her face was dreadfully pale. She seemed to be desperately struggling.
She looked up, her mask finally thoroughly gone. “Ning Yishu, you’re crazy. This array will entwine our souls together.”
Of course Ning Yishu knew what she was afraid of.
She originally wouldn’t watch him through the corners of her eyes. Although she was vicious and superficial.
What she hated the most was being tied up and threatened. And he wanted to imprison her at his side.
Ning Yishu slowly placed his hand on her chest. In his palm was the shrinking array formation.
His eyes were red, his expression firm but warped. “Shifu, stay with me. Whatever you want, I will give it all to you.”
Instead of giving in, she kicked him away.
“One cannot be too greedy. You can’t only want my abilities, and not want me.”
These words, when spoken, sounded miserable and aggrieved.
But his actions were completely ruthless as he pushed the array into her chest, bit by bit.
In the golden light, the despair in her eyes couldn’t be avoided.
Ning Yishu completely submerged the array formation into her body. At the same time, the same array appeared on his chest.
The two people’s souls slowly became entangled.
Ning Yishu reached out, treasuring every inch of her delicate and beautiful face. His body couldn’t stop shaking.
“Shifu, I know you aren’t willing, but I’m happy. I’m so happy2 that we can be together forever.”
His brows relaxed, and his smile spread from his eyes to the corners of his mouth. It was a smile of extreme content.
【Ding. The male lead’s favorability has increased to 80.】
