Chapter 127

Western Mountain, Fire Phoenix Cave.

Liu Ying tightly held a piece of green jade pendant in her hand, feeling both happy and angry, trembling all over.

Following the Xuanxu Sword Sect on this journey, although brief, had already become an indelible shadow in her life. From today on, she would rather become a nun than ever again flirt with sword cultivators who don’t know any better.

After the firephoenix was roasted by Ning Ning, the group entered the cave. At a glance, Liu Ying saw the jade pendant placed in the corner of the cave. Being the fastest, she quickly stepped forward and snatched it away.

After that, what the elders saw outside the Mystic Mirror was a scene of self-explosion that was touching and inspiring.

“Ni… Niguang Island?”

He Zhizhou stepped back in astonishment, his big eyes filled with huge doubt. “But aren’t you a music cultivator from Mount Liuming?”

“Of course I lied to you, you fool!”

Seeing the dumbfounded look on the faces of these sword cultivators, Liu Ying felt a sense of satisfaction, as if she had finally avenged a great wrong. She tore off the black ash human mask on her face, revealing a charming and beautiful face.

“What’s wrong? Do you only allow yourselves to bully others and not allow us from Niguang Island to use a little strategy?”

She became more and more pleased as she spoke, and the jade pendant in her hand felt as cold as ice and snow, causing Liu Ying to subconsciously grip it tightly.

With it, the divine object passed down by the Fox clan for thousands of years would fall into the hands of Niguang Island.

Unlike the Xuanxu Sword Sect, they didn’t meddle in other people’s business. Their actions were all aimed at winning trials and seizing treasures. Once they had the Sun Blaze Bow in hand, neither of these goals would be out of reach.

“Sister Liu Ying, what do you want to do?”

Qiao Yan’s face turned pale with anxiety as she spoke with a trembling voice. “If we lose the jade pendant, we won’t be able to get the Sun Blaze Bow, and when the demons break through the barrier in the future, the fox clan will be finished!”

Liu Ying raised an eyebrow nonchalantly. “We will naturally consider dealing with the demons.”

Niguang Island wasn’t foolish; they understood that eliminating the demons was a great achievement. Rather than leaving this honor to the Xuanxu Sect, it was better to snatch the Sun Blaze Bow and replace those sword cultivators as heroes who exterminate demons.

Just as she finished speaking, she sensed a cold sword wind attacking from beside her. It turned out Ning Ning had grabbed the Xinghen Sword and swiftly attacked her.

Among the young disciples of the Xuanxu Sword Sect, she had the best agility. Now, as swift as lightning, even Liu Ying didn’t react in time and was directly hit on the wrist by the scabbard, causing the jade pendant in her hand to fall with a painful groan.

Damn it, how does she still have strength?

Seeing the jade pendant fall from her hand and into Ning Ning’s grasp, Liu Ying frowned inwardly, feeling annoyed.

As far as she knew, Ning Ning and Pei Ji had exerted the most effort in the previous battle, consuming a lot of spiritual energy from the fire phoenix. At this moment, they shouldn’t have much energy left, but the result was…


Liu Ying’s eyes narrowed.

Although Ning Ning was agile and caught her off guard with her attack, her body was already trembling slightly, indicating that she was struggling to maintain her strength.

The stunning girl in white lightly curved her lips, urging the spiritual energy that had been suppressed in her body for a long time, swiftly approaching Ning Ning with a ghostly demeanor.

The spiritual pressure was like a mountain, and the sword light was like water.

In the confrontation, naturally, Ning Ning, who had no strength left, was slightly inferior and was struck in the chest by Liu Ying’s palm wind, causing the jade pendant to slip and fall back into the hands of the bewitching cultivator from Niguang Island.

Others nearby were eager to help, but Liu Ying thought it troublesome. With a graceful movement, she dodged backward, her figure gradually dimming like a thin mist. After a slight sway, she quickly fled out of the cave with the help of momentum.

With this trick, Mantis stalks the cicada, unaware of the oriole behind; she had long been secretly looking forward to it.

Ning Ning, Pei Ji, and Xu Ye had already lost most of their spiritual energy; He Zhizhou and Qiao Yan couldn’t pose much threat.

With her extraordinary agility and the fact that she hadn’t even fought from the beginning to the end, her spiritual energy was at its peak, so she would definitely not be caught up with.

The sound of rushing wind passed by her ears, and the sound of pursuit gradually faded away. When only the whistling wind could be heard, Liu Ying finally revealed an undisguised smile at the corner of her mouth.

Not in vain did she endure hardships and humiliation; this jade pendant and the Sun Blaze Bow are now treasures in the possession of Niguang Island!

The Xuanxu Sword Sect, having lost the jade pendant, would certainly hurry to the secret entrance of the waterfall. She couldn’t delay; she must lead her fellow disciples to get the Sun Blaze Bow before they arrived there—

Otherwise, if they were to meet face-to-face, it would definitely lead to a brutal battle.

In terms of agility, they were unmatched among all sects, but in actual combat, the crazy sword cultivators of the Xuanxu Sword Sect were to be avoided.

The base of Niguang Island was not far from the western mountain; with Liu Ying and Rong Ci, there were a total of seven bewitching cultivators.

She dared not waste a moment. After roughly explaining the situation, she quickly led everyone to the waterfall. Qiao Yan’s words were indeed true; passing through the dragon-like current, there was indeed a massive stone door standing on the mountain wall.

“Revenge fulfilled!”

One of the girls was excited; her face flushed. “Once we get the Sun Blaze Bow, we’ll go and kill those people from the Xuanxu Sect first! It’s hilarious to think about their expressions when they’re eliminated by the weapons they painstakingly found!”

But Rong Ci, who had been played by Ning Ning before, frowned slightly. “The process of us obtaining the jade pendant seems too simple. With the style of the Xuanxu Sword Sect, there might be deceit involved.”


Liu Ying pointed to her scorched forehead and snorted coldly. “I’ve been tormented into this state. How can I face people in the future? When we get the Sun Blaze Bow, I will personally seek revenge against those people and relieve my heart’s hatred!”

After saying that, she took out the jade pendant from her bosom and carefully placed it in the groove in the center of the stone door, just right.

Taking a deep breath, Liu Ying couldn’t help but smile, her gaze fixed tightly on the secret door, determined to witness its opening.

However, moments passed, and the stone door showed no sign of reaction.

After waiting a while longer, still nothing happened.

Finally, someone couldn’t wait any longer and hesitantly asked in a low voice, “Senior Sister Liu Ying… what’s going on?”

How should she know!

Liu Ying, frustrated by the antics of the Xuanxu Sect, became even more impatient when the stone door remained as motionless as death. She took the jade pendant out of the groove, changed its direction, and pressed it in again.

The whole world seemed to have died.

Sorrow is like a thick stone door; she is at this end, and the Sun Blaze Bow is at the other end.

—Why is there still no reaction at all?!

Liu Ying’s head buzzed emptily, trembling as she took the jade pendant down, subconsciously recalling the scene of her struggle with Ning Ning in the cave.


Ning Ning had once snatched the jade pendant, only to be snatched back by her later. Liu Ying had assumed that the girl had run out of energy, but if everything was deliberate on her part, if she had hidden the real jade pendant on her person and deliberately let out a fake one…

She had been fooled!
