As Jian Zhi Chu realised Ji Wu Wang was in danger, he risked his life coming to the realm through an unknown black hole. Having been through much hardship, Jian Zhi Chu saved the fainted Ji Wu Wang from Mo Wang Zi in grave danger.
Jian Zhi Chu brought Ji Wu Wang into a safe cave in order to treat her wounds. He thought Ji Wu Wang would have soon recovered. To his surprise, Ji Wu Wang was mumbling at midnight.
Ji Wu Wang: Don’t...Don’t leave me alone, Sister…
Jian Zhi Chu: Si Sim...Si Sim!
Jian Zhi Chu: “This is bad! Her body is stone cold.
Jian Zhi Chu: I must use my energy to stabilise the body temperature before she freezes to death, but i can’t do it without taking off her clothes...”
Ji Wu Wang: Ugh…
Jian Zhi Chu: “No time to hesitate. I must save her!”
Jian Zhi Chu took off the clothes of Ji Wu Wang. He was stunned by the scars and scratches on her body, some of which were in half-arm length. Jian Zhi Chu frowned as he could hardly conceal the pain inside his heart.
Jian Zhi Chu: “It’s all my fault...I failed to protect her...”
Jian Zhi Chu: “I won’t let this happen again...”
Jian Zhi Chu circulated his energy to stabilise the chaotic power inside Ji Wu Wang. Time had passed and her situation was finally in control.
Jian Zhi Chu stopped healing until he made sure Ji Wu Wang was fine. He kept exhaling to reform his pneuma. Suddenly, there was a clap of thunder outside the cave. Jian Zhi Chu helped Ji Wu Wang put on her clothes and then came to the entrance of the cave to figure out what had happened.
The sun-drenched sky was masked by dark clouds, and there was an ominous fluctuation in the air. Jian Zhi Chu focused on the five senses and frowned.
Jian Zhi Chu: “This energy...It’s Qi Tian Di!”
As Jian Zhi Chu wanted to look into it, he heard Ji Wu Wang muttering. Ji Wu Wang finally came out of a coma after recuperation——
Under the care of Jian Zhi Chu, Ji Wu Wang came out of a coma. She insisted on killing Yao Hou regardless of Jian Zhi Chu’s dissuasion. Jian Zhi Chu was worried that the injured Ji Wu Wang would get ambushed by Mo Wang Zi lurking somewhere.
Jian Zhi Chu failed to persuade Ji Wu Wang because of her perverseness. Though he had an uneasy feeling about Qi Tian Di’s existence, it would be too dangerous to leave Ji Wu Wang alone, so he decided to stick with her.
The two followed the trail of evil energy to a rugged mountain. Jian Zhi Chu circulated his energy to make his body as light as a feather. Then he climb up to the mid-level with just a few leaps. At the moment, he heard a mumbling from behind.
Ji Wu Wang: Uh..Dang it! I cannot even climb up a mountain!
Jian Zhi Chu: Don’t push yourself too hard. You haven’t recovered yet, so your stamina is losing fast. C’mon, i’ll help you——
Ji Wu Wang: Don’t! I need no sympathy!
Jian Zhi Chu: You misunderstand me. I...just don’t want you to get hurt…
Ji Wu Wang: ...Pardon me for my temperament. I know i owe you a big favour. You saved my life. I’ll repay for it, and that’s it.
Jian Zhi Chu: But I——
A huge noise interrupted the talk between them. The two turned back and saw there was a volcanic eruption. The sky was masked by dust and smog coming out from the crater, and a dense sulfur spread in the air. Jian Zhi Chu could not help but covered his face with the sleeve.
Jian Zhi Chu: “That unusual eruption...must be related to Qi Tian Di...I have to stop it!”
Ji Wu Wang: Mmm!
Jian Zhi Chu: Si Sim, are you alright?
Ji Wu Wang: The smell of sulfur... makes me want to throw up...
Jian Zhi Chu: Let’s get a rest somewhere. You have no chance confronting Yao Hou if you continue this way.
The two leap into the air, found a tree and rested underneath the shade. He thought Ji Wu Wang's injuries would get better. Unfortunately, she was even worse and kept puking.
Ji Wu Wang: Mmm——!
Jian Zhi Chu: “What can i do to make her better...”
As Jian Zhi Chu was at his wits’ end, an old woman passed through. She saw Ji Wu Wang's uncomfortable look, then came over and expressed her concern.
Old Woman: Alas, are you okay?
Ji Wu Wang: I’m fine...Mmm.
Jian Zhi Chu: Thank you for your kindness. She felt sick after breathing in some marsh gas from the volcano. Taking a rest should be fine.
Old Woman: Alas! Men is always obtuse.
Jian Zhi Chu: What do you mean?
Old Woman: This leaf is for you. Chew it and it will stop the vomit.
Ji Wu Wang: Thank you...very kind of you.
Old Woman: You should get more rest now. Just leave the chores to your husband.
Ji Wu Wang: What? He is not my——
Old Woman: Haaa. Don’t be shy, young one. I’m not going to bother you two any longer then. So long.
The old woman left. What she said had made them feel very embarrassed and Ji Wu Wang eventually broke the silence.
Ji Wu Wang: Ahem...I feel much better now. Let’s go find Yao Hou then.
After a rest, Jian Zhi Chu and Ji Wu Wang continued searching for Yao Hou and got her in an alpine village. They had a dead fight against each other, but Jian Zhi Chu got the upper hand over Yao Hou. As he was going to kill her, the cunning Yao Hou played dirty and attacked the exhausted Ji Wu Wang.
In order to protect Ji Wu Wang, Jian Zhi Chu covered her but got hit by Yao Hou. The demonic energy flew into his blood, affecting his inner power. It might possibly corrupted his mind. At the same time, Yao Hou took this chance to escape. Instead of chasing Yao Hou, Ji Wu Wang eventually chose to save Jian Zhi Chu.
Ji Wu Wang carried him up and brought him to a house in the village. Jian Zhi Chu was tired out, kneeling on one knee.
Ji Wu Wang: Are you alright?
Jian Zhi Chu: “Hang in there. I need to protect her...”
However, his body went against his will. Jian Zhi Chu felt a sudden black out as the demonic energy inside was nibbling him up. He could no longer take it and fell into a faint.
Ji Wu Wang: Jian Zhi Chu!
Ji Wu Wang held on Jian Zhi Chu promptly. The passion she intentionally covered up had completely revealed. Her eyes were filling with tears. Jian Zhi Chu, also, could hardly hold the emotion, reached out and touched her face. It had been a long wait, and here she was. It was surreal somehow.
Jian Zhi Chu: Years, I’ve been finding you for years...Uh,puff!
Affected by the demonic energy, Jian Zhi Chu was puking blood stasis; Ji Wu Wang was shocked and immediately examined his condition.
Ji Wu Wang: “The demonic energy...must be from Yao Hou’s attack...”
Ji Wu Wang: Why did you make such a sacrifice …
Jian Zhi Chu: Ahemm...as long as you won’t leave…
Ji Wu Wang: “I must release that demonic energy...”
As Ji Wu Wang was holding Jian Zhi Chu tight, he no longer could control his lust under the influence of the demonic energy, so he hugged her down…
The full moon rose, colouring the alpine village with the silver light. Ji Wu Wang and Jian Zhi Chu were too shy to look at each other in the moonlight. The delirious lust had made them speechless again.
Jian Zhi Chu: Why did you save me?
Ji Wu Wang: ...I save you because i owe you a favour, nothing else. Please forget what we just did.
Jian Zhi Chu: I...I can’t.
Ji Wu Wang: I can, I have to——
Suddenly, there was a violent vibration, which made Ji Wu Wang barely tumble and fell down. Jian Zhi Chu immediately held her tight, and glanced at the ominous power simmering in the air.
Jian Zhi Chu: “It’s the power of Qi Tian Di...and Su Huan Jen!”
Jian Zhi Chu: “I must get going and help him...But I'm afraid that Ji Wu Wang will act impulsively if I leave her alone...Forgive me!”
Jian Zhi Chu sneaked up and put up two fingers stimulating Ji Wu Wang's sleeping pulse through his energy. The exhausted Ji Wu Wang immediately fell into a faint. Jian Zhi Chu touched her face and said gently.
Jian Zhi Chu: I will come back to you. I felt regretful letting you go last time. But this time, I’ll never let it happen!
The demonic energy nearly drove Jian Zhi Chu losing his sanity. Fortunately, with the help of Ji Wu Wang, he gradually recovered. The passion of the two, however, had shook Ji Wu Wang’s mind. She decided to cut off the bonding with Jian Zhi Chu and left him alone.
Nevertheless, A sudden earthquake had stopped her intent of leaving. At the same time, Jian Zhi Chu felt something wrong based on the energy of Qi Tian Di and Su Huan Jen. He then knocked out Ji Wu Wang using his blade energy, and went to the source of ominous power.
Jian Zhi Chu could sense the powerful energy far from where he was. After a while, he cautiously arrived at the destination.
Jian Zhi Chu: “Su Huan Jen! Looks like he was faint...Ye Shiao Chai was healing him, and there is an unfamiliar person protecting Su Huan Jen…”
Jian Zhi Chu: “The others are defending Qi Tian Di’s attacks!”
Qi Tian Di: Humph! Mankind is struggling to survive! What a fool!
Qi Tian Di gave a wave, then the dark elements were combining into countless power spheres.
Qi Tian Di: Hah!
The dark elemental spheres were unleashed towards those persons defending Qi Tian Di’s attacks, but they were no longer able to block them all——
Jian Zhi Chu: “I need to protect them!”
Jian Zhi Chu concentrated his energy, dashed like a white dragon and strode right in front of them. He put up both left and right finger, circling on his chest.
Jian Zhi Chu: Hah! Endless Divine Swords!
A swirling vortex of thousand swords, as if a swarm of horses, created a firm shield blocking the elemental spheres of Qi Tian Di. The two power had stirred up a violent earthquake and storm wind for a while, blowing away countless dust and stones.
Yi Yeh Shu: Great! You finally come, Jian Zhi Chu.
Qi Tian Di: Humph! One more to the corpse pile. Die!
Jian Zhi Chu circulated power with the others to withstand the intense attacks of Qi Tian Di. As they were about to lose, Su Huan Jen finally woke up!
Su Huan Jen: We will prevail if we gather our strength!
Jian Zhi Chu: We are counting on you, Su Huan Jen!
With the concerted effort, they successfully defeated Qi Tian Di. Jian Zhi Chu was finally relieved once he witnessed Qi Tian Di turning into light dots and vanishing in the air.
As Jian Zhi Chu wanted to bid farewell to Su Huan Jen and the others, and came back to Ji Wu Wang, the Trio used their energy to create a portal returning to Shen Zhou. The portal would sent back all those from Shen Zhou.
Jian Zhi Chu: “I strive to find you, but now we separate again, Si Sim...”
Jian Zhi Chu: No matter what stands ahead, I will find you again, I promise…
