Chapter 838: Gu Yue?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When Tang Wulin looked at Xu Xiaoyan who could no longer restrain herself and was inching toward him, he was flustered. No matter how resolute he was, he would have no choice but to compromise under such a situation.
“What’re you afraid of? Enjoy life, how wonderful it is to be able to do that. Look, such a beautiful young lady is coming toward you, why would you want to suppress your desires? Let loose, give free rein to your desires!”
The voice was not Old Demon Nightmare’s. Instead, it was a female voice, a very seductive female voice. Although it was subtle, at this moment, it was like a lighted fuse.
Tang Wulin’s vision blurred. Xu Xiaoyan who was inching toward him seemed to have changed. Her appearance changed into Na’er, and then Gu Yue.
Tang Wulin told himself with all his might that the person who was getting closer to him was not Gu Yue, nor Na’er. However, the potency of the pink mist was too powerful. It was so potent that it not only invaded his body and aroused his instincts, it even began to invade his spiritual world.
A series of illusions appeared ceaselessly within his mind. The good times he spent with Gu Yue replayed in his mind continuously.
Tang Wulin balled his hands into tight fists. He tried repeatedly to struggle out of this illusion. However, he was overwhelmed by these illusions.
Finally, a wet and hot hand grabbed his shoulder. Tang Wulin instantly felt his body was about to erupt like a volcano.
He turned around instinctively. His eyes were reddened.
At this very moment, the pink mist disappeared from the cavern as if it was water that was being sucked by an adult whale. Shortly after, icy water gushed down like a waterfall. It drenched the seven of them completely amidst their screams.
All their desires were snuffed out completely. Their muddled minds were also instantly refreshed.
Tang Wulin shivered greatly. He saw that Xu Xiaoyan was already very close to him with her hand on his shoulder. His hand was already raised. If it were not for that icy water, his hand might have reached her body already.
The situation in the other two compartments was almost similar.
Yuanen Yehui had one foot on Xu Lizhi’s back. Xu Lizhi was sprawled on the floor as he panted heavily.
Ye Xinglan’s willpower was slightly stronger, but she was no longer sitting cross-legged. Instead, she had propped up her body and was in a stance from which she was ready to pounce.
The most awkward situation involved Xie Xie and Yue Zhengyu. The two of them were locked in an embrace. After they were drenched in cold water, both of them regained their senses and were glaring at each other.
“Ugh…” The two of them moved their heads away at the same time and feigned vomiting. They quickly parted at the drop of a hat.
“You, did you do anything to me?” They shouted furiously at each other almost at the same time.
Fortunately, the garments on their bodies were still tidy. They obviously had not proceeded beyond their embrace.
Following this incident, a strong sense of fear filled all their minds. They could not imagine the consequences if the pink mist had persisted just now. What kind of situation would they have found themselves in?
It would have left an indelible mark on them. It might even make them abandon their lives. Such was the severity of the incident.
There was nothing like mental torture.
“I bet you’re more obedient now, right?” came Old Demon Nightmare’s voice which sounded somewhat peculiar. Shortly after, a succession of strange laughing sounds pervaded the pain they felt.
The walls of the cavern shook as the loud voice resonated within. Tang Wulin and the others fell into a stupor once more under the intense sound waves.
Ever since they came here, they had met the old demons Blight, Nightmare, Devour, and Loathe. The methods by which the old demons tortured them were endless. Each of them was so terrifying that they could not resist them.
These old demons had completely exploited the weaknesses of their humanity. For half a year, their bodies and spirits had been mercilessly tyrannized upon by the demons’ torture.
When Tang Wulin woke up from his stupor, he noticed that he was still inside the cavern. There was another figure inside the cavern. The person leaned on the stone wall and wore a purple cloak. He could not make out the person’s looks.
He took a deep breath. Tang Wulin noticed that he could control his soul power and blood essence power once again. He instinctively flipped over and sat up. Other than the lingering dizziness in his head, everything was normal.
Tang Wulin calmed his spirits down. Then, he carefully approached the person to take a look at the person.
What he saw made his eyes bulge and surprised him.
Under the purple hood was a beautiful face so delicate that it seemed fragile to the touch. Her skin was fair and exquisite. Her looks were not perfect, but it had an unparalleled important position in Tang Wulin’s heart.
When he saw her, the first thought that crossed Tang Wulin’s mind was that this was impossible. However, shortly afterward, he felt his body and spirit greatly shaken.
He instinctively pinched himself on the thigh. He pinched rather strongly, and it was painful.
So, he was not dreaming. Everything before him was real. He instinctively reached out to pinch her cheek.
“Hmm!” The young girl grunted softly. Her long eyelashes moved and she opened her eyes slowly.
Their eyes locked. Tang Wulin got excited instantly. However, her gaze seemed to be momentarily lost as if she was in a trance.
“I… where am I?” the young girl asked absentmindedly.
Tang Wulin smiled bitterly and said, “This is Demon Island. Are you really you?”
The young girl sat up straight abruptly. She seemed to have regained her senses. She said hysterically, “You, why are you here? You…”
Yes, this young girl was none other than the long-lost Gu Yue.
Tang Wulin looked at her absentmindedly. He was looking at her shocked expression. “Gu Yue, you’ve given me much trouble to find you!”
Gu Yue’s breathing became rushed noticeably. She stood up swiftly and looked around her. She muttered, “You, you, why are you here? I was clearly in Spirit Pagoda just moments ago. You…”
Tang Wulin shook his head. “If I said I don’t know, would you believe me?”
Gu Yue pressed a hand onto her fair chest. She suddenly turned around with her back facing Tang Wulin as if she was unwilling to face him. Her breathing was rushed.
“Why did you leave? What is it that we can’t face and overcome together? Sure, I know that the current me isn’t strong enough and might not be able to protect you completely, but I will work hard. I’ll work hard to become stronger. The future me will surely be able to protect you. Gu Yue, can you not leave me again?”
Tang Wulin approached her. His slightly trembling hands latched onto her arms and he slowly turned her around.
“You don’t understand, you don’t understand. It’s not that simple,” Gu Yue’s voice was slightly shaky, “How could I bear to leave you? But, I can’t stay by your side. This is for your safety, and for your future.”
Tang Wulin turned her around forcefully so that she faced him. “Even if you’re worried that I won’t be able to accept it, can you at least tell me what it is? Could it be that you think I might love someone else other than you in this world?”
Gu Yue said drily, “There are so many exceptional girls who like you. You can go pick one of them.”
“Are you being serious?” Tang Wulin lowered his voice.
Gu Yue looked away. She did not make a sound.
Tang Wulin drew a deep breath. “Just tell me. I don’t care what it is, but you should at least let me know the truth of the matter. Together, we can still think of a way to overcome it in the future! Maybe I don’t have the strength to protect you yet, and I agree that we can be temporarily apart for now. But, you must at least let me know the reason. At least give me some hope to hold on to. You love me, and the feelings we have for each other is real. That is enough. I believe that I’d be able to protect you in the future and be by your side. What is it that bothers you? Just tell me.”
