Chapter 0083 – I’m Not A Fool
Ning Cheng was just about to speak, when he once again unexpectedly found a person, moreover it was not just a single person, but rather it was a group of four people.
“Hey, you let that little fish escape again, this time more than once ……” A hoarse voice spoke in a surprised tone.
“Lou Fei, are these the people that chased you?” Ning Cheng stared at the four cultivators in front of him and asked her, of the four people in front of him two of them were at True Condensation 1st Level, one at True Condensation 2nd Level while the last person was at Peak Stage Qi Gathering 9th Level.
“What….” Ji Luo Fei did not seem to understand, and for a moment forgot to reply to Ning Cheng’s words, since she was just chased down and killed by these people, so how could they be back?
That cultivator at the True Condensation 2nd Level did not move, but said to the other three people, “Kill that man first, then we’ll leave with the woman, we have already stayed for 6 months in this damn desert, she is already a faded out bird. The two of you be careful to not kill her, although her face is ugly but she really has a damn good figure.”
The other three did not need the cultivator at the True Condensation 2nd Level to speak, since they had already blocked off Ning Cheng, one of the cultivators at the True Condensation 1st Level immediately jumped into the air, and raised his hands in order to grasp Ning Cheng’s head within it.
Although Ji Luo Fei had still not replied to Ning Cheng’s question, he knew that she was being chased by these four people since before, immediately bringing out his Spear he simultaneously shot out many Spear Shadows, completely enveloping the three people.
The yellow sand in front of him immediately turned into a sheet of ice emanating an intense chill, as more than 20 Ice Spear Shadows instantly connected together to form a huge Ice Spear Net, that wrapped around the three cultivators, completely trapping them within the Spear Net.
“Poof” Ning Cheng just casually leapt ahead of the cultivator of the True Condensation 1st Level who had tried to pounce on him, at this moment he simply did not even have the ability to resist even for a slightest moment, before he was directly shattered into countless ice fragments after being struck once more by one of the Ice Spear Shadow.
“He is not a cultivator at the Qi Gathering 7th Level…….” the other True Condensation 1st Level cultivator had just spoken out when he was immediately bound by more than a dozen Ice Spear Shadows, he only had the time to take out his single edged knife Artefact, but before he could even use his Artefact, he was instantly pierced by a dozen of the Ice Spear Shadows. A dozen arrows of blood shot out from his body, and instantly froze into a dozen bloody icicles.
Although Ning Cheng had brought out more than 20 Spear Shadows, but he had only used them on the two cultivators of the True Condensation Realm, as for that cultivator in the Qi Gathering 9th Level, Ning Cheng did not waste a Spear Shadow on him, but rather he just threw out a punch.
Although that cultivator at the Qi Gathering 9th Level reacted quickly, but the Axe Type Killing Intent from the fist that he had punched out directly bound him, even if could react even more quickly, in front of this kind of strength, he was simply akin to floating clouds.
“Bang” Although this Qi Gathering 9th Level cultivator was able to bring out a shield to protect himself, but in front of Ning Cheng’s Axe Fist, it was just like a thin paper, that broke in a twinkling. As Ning Cheng’s Axe Fist detonated on the body of the Qi Gathering 9th Level Cultivator, he immediately coughed out a mouthful of blood, as he was sent flying several yards back, but by the time he fell to the ground, he was already a corpse.
The True Condensation 2nd Level Cultivator who was standing at a distance, already had enough time to react, and at this time he was holding a glowing long blue hook shaped Artefact in his hands as he stared at Ning Cheng.
“I never thought that you would turn out to be cultivator in the True Condensation Realm, since you really are a cultivator of the True Condensation Realm, for such a problem to occur is just a misunderstanding, just let it go, and in the future we will not meet each other again.” The cultivator at the True Condensation 2nd Level spoke, as he simultaneously started to retreat while keeping a close eye on Ning Cheng.
Ning Cheng knew that the reason why he was saying those words was because of the Profound Grade 36 Ice Spears Technique, even if he did not recognise that it was a Profound Level technique, he could easily guess that he was not Ning Cheng’s opponent, and even showed that he was afraid of him.
But Ning Cheng was not even interested in talking with him, and immediately swept out 22 Ice Spear Shadows again, these Ice Spear Shadows at once formed a vast Spear Net once again and directly sealed up the cultivator at the True Condensation 2nd Level in it.
Since this cultivator at the True Condensation 2nd Level was alert all the time, so when he saw Ning Cheng make his move, he also immediately resorted to the long blue hook in his hands.
But just as he decided to use the long blue hook in his hands, he couldn’t even use it to defend himself before it was sucked away by a giant mouldy copper coin. This cultivator at the True Condensation 2nd Level could only watch helplessly as the Ice Spear Shadows plunged into his body.
He was already grasping a Talisman in his hands and had even charged it up with his True Essence to 50%, but this cultivator at the True Condensation 2nd Level could never have dared to believe that he would end up dying so quickly.
He originally wanted to use the long blue hook Magic Weapon to block Ning Cheng’s Ice Spear Shadows, and then use the charged up Level 3 Thunderbolt Talisman in his hands. In his view, even if his Thunderbolt Talisman could not kill Ning Cheng, it would have at least severely injured him.
Although the Level 3 Thunderbolt Talisman was precious, but compared to his poor life, and in front of a Profound Grade Spear Technique, this Thunderbolt Talisman was not worth mentioning.
He had thought about innumerable things, but he had never once thought that he wouldn’t even have enough time to charge his Thunderbolt Talisman. Not only his long blue hook Artefact could not block the Ice Spear Shadows, it was instead pulled away by his opponent.
Ning Cheng lifted his hand and the Five Elemental Treasure Fall Coins immediately fell onto it, simultaneously becoming secretly shocked in his heart, these mouldy coins really were something to be scared of. He had only refined just a single layer of Restriction on them, and it was already this powerful, once he refined all the Restrictions on it, then wouldn’t it mean that as long as the opponent’s Artefact was made from the five elements, he could easily snatch them? Fortunately, he still had the 7 Pleiades Ice Needle, otherwise he would have definitely have died back at that time because of this Five Elemental Treasure Fall Coins.
Even if he did not use these Five Elemental Treasure Fall Coins a moment ago, he still believed that he would have been able to take care of this cultivator at the True Condensation 2nd Level albeit it would have taken a bit more time than usual. But because of the help from the Coin Artefact, this kind of thing became too simple.
“Ning Cheng, we ….” Ji Luo Fei who was still on Ning Cheng’s back, called out with a trembling voice, she felt that something was not right, just what was going on? She had not died yet, but then if she had not died, then how could she have met Ning Cheng? Moreover, how could Ning Cheng be this formidable and be able to kill all those 4 powerful cultivators in under one breath?
Ning Cheng just turned his head slightly towards Ji Luo Fei and smiled, “Luo Fei, I don’t know how you arrived at the Thunder Fall Desert from the Hua Continent, but you do not need to worry anymore. We are both alive and well, and are certainly not dead.”
Ji Luo Fei subconsciously pinched him with her hand, for a moment she had forgotten that she was still holding onto the scruff of Ning Cheng. Ning Cheng immediately felt a bit pain, as he grimaced and said, “Luo Fei, you are pinching me.”
Ji Luo Fei did not hear what Ning Cheng said, and subconsciously embraced Ning Cheng’s neck, and immediately began to cry out loud. She was not glad that she had not died, but rather she was glad that Ning Cheng did not die.
Ning Cheng stretched out his hand back and patted Ji Luo Fei’s back and said, “The living should be happy, don’t cry.”
While he said those words he was feeling somewhat strange in his heart, in his original memories, Ji Luo Fei never ever cried because of anything, thus for him this was the first time he saw Ji Luo Fei crying.
Ning Cheng saw that Ji Luo Fei did not seem to hear him, and quickly asked again, “Luo Fei, just what the hell happened? I remember that when you left Cang Qin Province, you had already advanced to the Qi Gathering 4th Level, right? So how come you are only at Qi Gathering 5th Level now? Moreover, why did you come to the Thunder Fall Desert?”
Ji Luo Fei’s qualifications and talent were not bad, before when she was cultivating in the Cang Qin Academy, she was doing so without having access to any of the resources, but even then Luo Fei was able to advance to the peak of Qi Gathering 3rd Level. So it stood for good reason that when her paternal aunt Ji Yao He brought her to the Hua Continent’s 5 Star Academy, she could easily have a variety of cultivation resources and even guidance from different teachers, and as such should have long since broken into the later stages of the Qi Gathering Realm.
This was when comparing to An Yi, who had always been together with him, as her cultivation speed was much faster than Ji Luo Fei’s.
Ji Luo Fei just tightly hugged Ning Cheng, and did not reply to Ning Cheng’s words. Which made Ning Cheng helpless, he could only tidy up the several things of the cultivators that he had killed, after doing that he carried Ji Luo Fei and rapidly departed.
After a long time, Ji Luo Fei who was still on Ning Cheng’s back spoke, “I am sorry, Ning Cheng.”
Ning Cheng once again turned to look at Ji Luo Fei as he smiled and said, “Luo Fei, you do not have to apologize for anything, if you would have not come back for me, then I would have long since died.”
Ning Cheng knew, that if Ji Luo Fei had not promptly come to pick him from the prison entrance, then as to what kind of fate would he have, it really would not be something very difficult to predict.
“On that day when I was carrying you, I did not care much if you lived or died, it was only because I was sorry for Grandpa Ning, I am sorry….” Ji Luo Fei was talking in a very small voice, as if she was rebuking herself.
Initially when she had been carrying Ning Cheng on her back, she had wholeheartedly thought that Ning Cheng was already dead, even when afterwards Ning Cheng revived on her back, she still did not have a shred of astonishment or surprise on her. For her, at that time whether Ning Cheng was dead or alive, it really did not matter to her for even half a moment. If Ning Cheng was alive, she would look after him, if Ning Cheng was dead, she would bury him.
Ning Cheng was silent for a moment and then said, “Luo Fei, you should not blame yourself, before I was always hard on you, for you to not care about me is normal.”
“No.” Ji Luo Fei immediately denied Ning Cheng’s words and said, “I only realized this later that you are the only one best for me, after Grandfather passed away, no one had ever been good to me like this other than you.”
Ning Cheng felt really ashamed of himself and absentmindedly scratched his head and said, “Luo Fei, you should not think like this. In case you meet a person with bad intentions, they will always pretend to be good to you at first, you should really not think like this, otherwise you will really fall into their trap.”
He did not know how should he explain this to Ji Luo Fei, as Ji Luo Fei was person who could easily be swindled. He himself knew that he had never done much for her in her life other than his predecessor tormenting and bullying her. If she saw someone being good to her even once, she would immediately give herself wholeheartedly to that person. Such an idea was very dangerous. Although the time that the present Ning Cheng had been living with Ji Luo Fei was shorter than what she had spent with him, but he had already come to realize that this person here was really simple and honest in nature.
Ji Luo Fei was silent for a long time, before she spoke in a low voice, “I am not a fool.”
She understood the meaning behind Ning Cheng’s words, but Ning Cheng could not understand what she meant.
Ning Cheng sighed, he did not continue this line of thought and asked, “Luo Fei, even you know that even an Essence Building Realm cultivator would have a tough time in the Thunder Fall Desert, aren’t you clear that lightning can intermittently fall on you? You are only at Qi Gathering 5th Level, for you to come to the Thunder Fall Dessert, I really do not know what to say to you.”
Ji Luo Fei still did not speak, how could she not know that with her strength coming to the Thunder Fall Dessert would be akin to suicide? But where else could she go? For a cultivator at the Qi Gathering 5th Level, just where in the world could she go? Even if she left the Falling Star Academy, she knew that if she did not find a safe place for herself, then at most she would only be able to survive for a few more years.
If it was before, then she had planned to go to the Cang Qin 2 Star Academy and then help Ning Chen escape from that place, she had thought of trying to find a few cultivation resources along the way to continue with her cultivation, and then head out to find her parents.
But after that day, she was continuously thinking about Ning Cheng more and more as Ning Cheng’s shadow continued to grow in her heart. The only person willing to die for her, was her fiancé. As for finding her long lost parents, she knew that the chance for that happening were very slim. But she knew that Ning Cheng was still in the Cang Qin Province, moreover she knew that once she left, Ning Cheng’s chances of surviving were very slim.
She had wanted to go back to the Cang Qin Province to look for Ning Cheng when she woke up on the airship, but she found that she had already left the Ping Continent by that time, although it had happened she still wished to go back to find him. If she was able to cross the Thunder Fall Desert, then she thought she would then have a chance to return back to the Cang Qin Province. If she ended up dying in the Thunder Fall Dessert, then at least she would still be closer to the Cang Qin Province.
Nobody knew what thoughts were going through her mind, and she also did not tell anyone about it.
