“You are hurting me!”
“You are talking nonsense! I am very gentle. How can you feel hurt?”
“Joker, you know you will probably die if you keep giving me your energy?! Listen! Stop giving me your energy, and get out of here!”
“No! Zixia, even if I wanted to leave here, I can’t. The power of the Array has covered the entire region. There is simply no way out!”
Hearing this, Zixia Fairy turned around and was shocked. The sea had spread out and covered the entire land, which meant this place had been locked in completely. Just like Xu Que had said, it was too late to leave.
Right at this moment, Xu Que looked at her, saying gently, “Zixia, can you promise me one thing?!”
“If I die, take my ashes with you. In the future, whenever you are in danger, throw my ashes at whatever is bad, and you will be fine!”
Hearing this, Zixia was stunned and terribly upset by his words. She had never met anyone who would be willing to sacrifice his life for her. In the past, she had heard about this sort of thing and thought that it would mostly happen between a couple. However, she had also heard a lot about cultivators who would kill their partners to keep their own lives. Even if these were just rumors, she still believed them.
After all, the Cultivation World in fact was a world where the weak would be killed by the strong. Many people would sacrifice everything they had to enhance their cultivation or to pursue being immortal. It was quite normal that people got killed or robbed.
Even I would not sacrifice what I have got to help others. But now a pure and naive young man takes the risk of losing his life to save me! How noble he is!
How can there be such a man in this world? The only reason I can think of is that he likes beauties and is willing to save beauties. But I am not a beauty…I haven’t got the time to make a beautiful body. If it were not for my managing to temporarily lower my cultivation level, I couldn’t even be here. Why he is doing this for me?
I am just a ugly stranger to him. Why is he being so nice to me?
Xu Que was feeling very good now and was happy that he had found a way to release the already abundant energy inside his body to Zixia Fairy; otherwise, his body would have already exploded.
“Joker, why are you being this nice to me?” Zixia Fairy asked gently while staring at him with a complex facial expression.
Xu Que smiled and shook his head, “When someone does something, he just does it, and you don’t need to find a reason to explain his motivation. The reason I saved you was because I wanted to save you!”
Hearing this, Zixia Fairy got silent. With the energy continuously transferring to her, she felt very warm and energetic. At the same time, she also got very worried. In fact, Zixia Fairy could not die, since she came inside the cave with her Magical Body, not her real body. Even if she died now, her real body would immediately come out and would be kicked out from this place due to her higher level of cultivation.
That was why, from the very beginning, she kept asking Xu Que to leave her behind. She never thought Xu Que would do such a thing for her.
This handsome young man would even risk his life to give me his energy to keep me alive!
Zixia Fairy sighed and did not want to tell Xu Que the truth when she saw his innocent face.
I can’t tell him that he is just saving my Magical Body! This is too cruel. Even if I tell him, there is nothing I can do to get him out of here.…Never mind, just let him die with the idea that he has tried his best.
“Zixia, have ever eaten roasted chicken wings?” Xu Que asked suddenly.
Zixia Fairy was a bit surprised and had no idea why he asked such an interesting question. She shook her head and answered seriously, “No, I haven’t.”
He is about to die, so I have to stay beside him and talk to him.
“Neither have I. I heard that it is the most delicious food in the world. I am afraid that I no longer will have the chance to eat it,” Xu Que raised up his head and said sadly.
What a good young man! What a noble young man, and now he is going to die here! The only regret he has is that he has not tasted roasted chicken wings.
“Zixia, can you promise me one more thing? After I die, can you do me a favor to find a young man called Xu Que and ask him to cook a few chicken wings for me. Then you can lay them in front of my tomb!”
Zixia Fairy nodded and promised, “I promise you!”
“Good! I am very happy to leave this world without any regrets now!” Then he slowly turned his face away and said no more words. He was not moving either, as if he had already passed away.
Seeing this, Zixia Fairy’s eyes were watering up.She was terribly moved by Xu Que’s kindness.
May you have a good eternal rest! I will never forget you, and when I get out of this place, I will make a most splendid tomb for you! I will learn how to cook the roasted chicken wings from Xu Que and lay them in front of your tomb on the day of your death anniversary each year.
“Zixia, have you ever eaten the Stinky Tofu?” Xu Que asked suddenly.
“What?!” Zixia Fairy jumped.
I thought he had already passed away. The stinky tofu? My goodness, can a piece of tofu still be eaten when it’s gone smelly?
“I suddenly recalled that I haven’t even had the chance to eat stinky tofu! I have been told that Xu Que can also cook it. I am afraid I can’t eat it in this life now!” Xu Que sighed.
Zixia Fairy was completely stunned. Then she realized that Xu Que was still transferring his energy to her with his hands on her hand.
He is still alive! How can this be?! He is in the Golden Core Stage. How can he have this amount of energy?! Even I cannot do this! This is too weird.
“Zixia, why are you so silent? Please be an angel and chat with me!” Xu Que stared at her and said gently, “I didn’t have any friends when I was young. I never thought I would die alone too!”
“I am here! I will talk with you! I would never let you die alone!” Zixia Fairy said aloud.
“Thank you! You are such a nice person!” Xu Que smiled and asked, “Zixia, can you sing?”
“I…can’t, I am not good with songs or any other forms of arts.” Zixia Fairy shook her head awkwardly.
“Never mind. I can sing, and I would like to sing for you!”
Zixia Fairy nodded instantly and smiled.
“Wait a minute!” Xu Que took out some audio equipment and pressed the “on” button. The next moment, beautiful music came on.
“The past is in the past; red leaves are buried under the ground; nothing has ever changed; you are far away from me and are wandering in the air…”
Hearing the sound, Zixia Fairy was in a daze.
The rhythm is so beautiful, and at the same time, it is also a bit sad and seems like the sound from heaven. His voice is just so wonderful.
The next minute, Xu Que began to sing in a higher pitch:
“The love and the hatred begin to tumble in the sea of misery; no one can ever run away from their fate; you are a darling to me, but I can’t get close to you; maybe I have to make myself believe that we are destined to be together.”
Zixia Fairy was totally stunned and deeply moved by the sound. Realizing Xu Que was about to die, she felt terribly, terribly sad.
“Ahahahah…” A delicate female voice came from the musical device.
Suddenly, Xu Que did not move at all, stopped singing, and closed his eyes.
“He’s gone.…” Zixia Fairy was very upset and felt a complicated feeling she had never felt before.
I really hope he is still alive! He is such a good young man, a real man! God, why do you have to take away his life?! Why does such a wonderful young man have to die at this young age?! Goodbye, Joker, you are the best man I have ever met since I woke up. I will stick to my words and make your wishes come true, I will always remember.…
“Oops, I forgot the lyrics, I am sorry!” Xu Que suddenly turned around and smiled at Zixia Fairy.
Zixia Fairy was speechless.
Are you gonna die or not?! For god’s sake!
