101 Part 1
But now, with this suspicious patriarch Qi, as long as they kept observing and collecting evidence, not only they could catch the insider of the Jiang family, they might also be able to prove that monsters were coming to besiege the city.
“This patriarch Qi is an insider.” Xu Ziyan was also pleasantly surprised by this unexpected discovery. This was a ready-made ‘evidence’. They just needed to catch this patriarch Qi, and they would certainly find a way to persuade Jiang Tianxing.
After the two returned to Jiang’s house, Xu Ziyan went to look for Jiang Tianxing’s secret agent, while at the same time, Xu Zirong quietly entered the secret room of Jiang Ying’s (m.) prison cell again.
“What are you doing?” When Jiang Ying saw Xu Zirong appear, he wasn’t pleased at all. Especially when he saw that Xu Ziyan wasn’t coming along, he became more cautious to Xu Zirong.
Xu Zirong looked at him up and down, and his facial expression became a little delicate, “your primordial yang is gone.”
Jiang Ying’s face suddenly became red, and he stuttered so much that he couldn’t even speak, “you…how…you…”
Xu Zirong’s squinted eyes flashed, and he didn’t admit that it’s jealousy.
“Hey, what do you want to do?” Jiang Ying (m.) instinctively sensed the danger, and took a few steps back in reflection.
“You seem to be in a good mood.” Xu Zirong walked slowly to the table and sat down, without paying attention to Jiang Ying.
Jiang Ying’s facial expression changed a few times. When he was about to get angry, he suddenly twisted and became calm again, “what’s the matter with you?”
Xu Zirong glanced at him, frowned slightly, then showed a dazzled expression while muttering to himself, “one body with two souls? A demonic body plus two souls in one body, what an interesting combination you have there.”
When the gentle Jiang Ying was about to disappear when he heard the term “demonic body”, he almost stared at Xu Zirong in panic, “you…how did you know?” It would at most bring him some troubles after people knew that he had two souls in one body, but if anyone knew that he also possessed a demonic body, and he might become the target of “walking in” by those high-level demon cultivators!
“Don’t do stupid things.” Xu Zirong looked icy cold, he just tapped a few times on the desk with his fingers.
Jiang Ying’s expression remained unchanged, but he slightly hooked his fingers covered under his clothes.
“Ah!” Jiang Ying exclaimed. There was a tingling pain from his fingertips, then the numbness began to spread from his fingertips to the whole body.
Jiang Ying was shocked, as he didn’t expect that he would be calculated silently. He had always been vigilant towards Xu Zirong, and the demonic power that he cultivated with his demonic body was more powerful than an ordinary cultivator at his mid-stage of building base. Although Xu Zirong was in the late stage of building base, their differences could not have enabled Xu Zirong to crush him so easily, unless the type of cultivation that Xu Zirong practiced was far more advanced that his “lost soul spell”.
Upon seeing this, Xu Zirong gave him a cold smile, “I told you already not to do stupid things.”
The gentle Jiang Ying’s eyes were dull, and he looked at Xu Zirong suspiciously.
Xu Zirong was not in a hurry, he slowly sorted out the wrinkles on the hem of his clothes. After smoothing them out, he seemed to have thought of something else, then he rubbed the sleeves and made it wrinkled, Jiang Ying felt speechless.
What’s his problem? Smoothing out his clothes then wrinkling them again? He’s got too much free time, right?
Regardless of the purpose of Xu Zirong, Jiang Ying, who’s numb all over his body at this moment, quickly thought about the purpose of Xu Zirong showing up in his cell.
The last time he came, he was with his brother, the purpose was to find the suspicious figure in the Jiang family. However, this time he appeared alone, and he immediately used a powerful technique. So, what’s his real purpose?
“Do you want to understand?” Xu Zirong raised the corner of his mouth.
Jiang Ying was not very happy, “just put it straight, I know I can’t beat you, but if you want to kill me, you would have killed me long time ago. Let’s just tell me, what do you want me to do?”
Xu Zirong nodded, “I like smart people. What you practiced is the lost soul spell, right?” Xu Zirong put it as a matter-of-fact manner.
Jiang Ying smiled coldly, “didn’t you know about it a long time ago?”
“It’s not too early.” Xu Zirong said indifferently, “the lost soul spell that you practiced is not complete, you know that?”
“I know, but this is the most complete and the most advanced demonic techniques that I could find.” With the limitations that he had, Jiang Ying was already grateful to have found this high-level practice, how would he care further whether it’s complete?
A person with a demonic body couldn’t cultivate the “righteous” way. But Jiang Ying didn’t have enough strength to cultivate low-level practices and he couldn’t leave the Jiang family in this way.
For high-level demon cultivation which could cause serious damages to the body, the possession of a demonic body would be an irresistible temptation. Usually, demon cultivation would be harmful to the body, yet having a demonic body would make a person totally immune to these damages.
The term “walking in” was like a sword hanging on top of Jiang Ying’s head. For him, once any high-level demon cultivator found out that he had a demonic body, it would certainly be fatal for him.
