The Cultivation Master’s Blackened Disciple (71)
The Void Refining stage cultivator leading the assault grit his teeth and spat out a mouthful of heart’s blood1. Having been critically injured, he was forced to use the forbidden art of breaking through space to escape.
His face twisted with hate, he roared, “Bai Weiwei, my loss today, I’ll be sure to repay it in the future. Just you wait for laozi2.”
Bai Weiwei sneered, her brows arrogantly raised. “I have no intention of running, ah, old turtle3.”
As the great array finished attacking the enemy, it gradually grew still.
Bai Weiwei turned around and headed back. Before she could take a few steps, she couldn’t hold back the mouthful of old blood.
A Nascent Soul stage cultivator forcibly activating the array would suffer immense damage.
On top of Bai Weiwei’s meridians being damaged when she was trying to get close to Ning Yishu without breaking character settings, it was simply a disaster after a misfortune4.
Ning Yishu lay on the ground, his expression somewhere between joy and anger. Seeing her stagger as she spit up blood, those intense emotions in his heart finally broke out.
He gripped the earth’s surface, nearly bleeding from the abrasion. With an unbelievable speed, he got up and rushed to her.
Just as she was about to fall, he reached out and hugged her.
But his body was weak, and he fell to his knees. Yet he didn’t feel any pain.
He just vigorously rubbed away the blood at the edges of Bai Weiwei’s mouth.
Bai Weiwei coughed a few times before listlessly laying her head against his chest.
“Why did you save me?” He asked, as though he were still in a dream.
With Bai Weiwei’s personality, how could she risk it all to save him?
The protective array could only attack once, and the caster had to pay a huge price.
If the enemies came by again, how could a Nascent Soul stage cultivator like her survive?
Ning Yishu’s head was filled with confusion and doubt. The corners of his eyes were red, and his eyes stung.
Bai Weiwei seemed somewhat dazed. “I also don’t know…”
The tears in Ning Yishu’s eyes finally fell. He clenched his teeth as he said fiercely, “How could you not know, are you trying to anger me to death5?”
Her hot and cold treatment towards him made him go insane with despair.
Just when he was about to sacrifice himself, this woman gave up everything to save him.
So capricious, so vicious, so affectionate.
Driving him to love her so strongly he became a madman.
Bai Weiwei laughed shortly. “What, are you dissatisfied that I saved you? Did you want me to apologize to you, to say sorry for running to save you?”
Talking about saving someone, yet saying it so maliciously.
Ning Yishu couldn’t help laughing. It was still the same temper. The tears wouldn’t stop flowing.
He laughed and cried, looking extremely pathetic.
“You shouldn’t have saved me…”
He whispered as he picked her up and headed back.
He was greedy. She gave him a bit of hope, and he wanted to be tied to her forever and ever6.
She saved him, and he would never let her go for the rest of his life.
【Ding. The male lead’s favorability has increased to 95.】
Bai Weiwei leaned into his arms and peacefully closed her eyes.
She silently communicated with the system: “What should I do if he keeps crying? Who said that men don’t cry easily? This miserable crying is like he suffered from abuse.”
The system flipped through the original novel and gave a faint sigh. “If I were Ning Yishu, I’d cry more miserably than him.”
Bai Weiwei: “…”
System: “He’s a perfectly good shuangwen male lead. Muddling along until now without ability, a little beauty7, or brothers, you tell me if it’s wretched or not.”
Bai Weiwei: “…Isn’t there still me?”
The system paused, then said: “Having you, isn’t that even more wretched?”
Bai Weiwei: “…”
