Long, slender, beautiful fingers, cold white in color, with well-defined bone joints.
The Empress’ eyes brightened: “Feng’er, is that you?”
She stretched out her hand to Xiao Shao.
When their hands were about to touch, Xiao Shao’s fingers lightly gripped.
The Empress’ eyes widened.
She was the mother of the world, she had been loved and admired throughout her life, but at this moment her eyes were full of dismay and despair, confusion, and heartbreaking pain of madness, like any other person in the world who died of hatred.
Because the next moment, she turned into ash and floated in the boundless blood mist. She disappeared with no trace to be seen in the vast world.
Lin Shu looked at this scene and felt that she was a bit pitiful.
In the end, she could not understand why things had come to this point.
She also did not know how the child she did not even care for, in the past twenty years, had earnestly adored her.
However, it was useless to say more. She had now already turned into dust.
The Phoenix Villa Headmistress shouted “Sister Jin!” and looked in the direction of her disappearance, looking very lost
Finally, she coughed violently once again.
Lin Shu could see that she had been badly injured in the raging fire just now. Even if she could be saved, she would have lost her cultivation skills and could not fall any lower any more.
He did not move.
Only Shangling Grandmaster helped the Phoenix Villa Headmistress and fed her a pill to protect her life.
Lin Shu looked around again.
The two brothers were desperately clinging to each other. They looked at the scene with dull eyes. They even forgot to tremble, as if they had become two statues that depended on each other.
Today, just in a day, too many people had died.
Now, this was another cruel scene. Xiao Xuan was looking a bit better, but most probably Xiao Lingyang’s mind has been shaken to the core.
Of course, there was another important reason. His devastatingly beautiful elder sister had turned into a man.
Xiao Xuan: “He… Who is he?”
He was in a trance: “Why does he look like Her Beautiful Highness?”
Lin Shu: “It’s Ling Fengxiao.”
Xiao Xuan: “… Huh?”
Xiao Lingyang, however, seemed to have been mentally prepared for a long time, and was not as dumb as Xiao Xuan at this time, and even shouted a few words at Xiao Shao.
“Ling Fengxiao? Ling Fengxiao? What’s wrong with you?”
Xiao Shao slowly turned his head.
With that glance, everyone seemed to be splashed with a bucket of ice water and placed in a bottomless cold abyss.
Xiao Lingyang shuddered and looked at Lin Shu: “He ……”
“The situation is not good.” Shangling Grandmaster said, “He seems to be possessed and has lost all his sanity.”
Lin Shu only looked at him, and then said to Shangling Grandmaster, “Lord Grandmaster… Please take Xiao Xuan and Xiao Lingyang back to the Capital.”
After a moment’s pause, he continued, “The affairs of the state are left to you and Lord Xie for the time being, and the matter of ascension to the throne is left to the two of them to decide.”
Shangling Grandmaster looked at him with deep eyes: “Pavilion Master, You are not leaving?”
Lin Shu shook his head.
Xiao Lingyang looked at Xiao Shao and then at him, “He seems to want to kill us.”
There was no other reason, Xiao Shao’s eyes were too cold and hollow, and the aura around him was so cold and frightening.
Lin Shu said, “Leave now.”
Even one step late would be more dangerous.
Shangling Grandmaster said, “I will bring them back now, rest assured, Your Excellency.”
Lin Shu nodded.
Then he saw that with a flick of the sleeve of Shangling Grandmaster’s simple robe, the flying boat of the Academy appeared in the sky. He sent the two younger brothers up. Finally, he looked at the Phoenix Villa Headmistress and took her with him.
Finally, he looked at Lin Shu and said, “Take care, Pavilion Master.”
Lin Shu: “See you later.”
The voices were all lowered, as if they were afraid that Xiao Shao would find them noisy as well and turn them into flying ashes in an instant.
Shangling Grandmaster took a final glance at Lin Shu and boarded the flying boat.
The flying boat slowly went away and disappeared in the thick black sky.
Lin Shu watched them leave safely and turned to Xiao Shao.
What happened to Xiao Shao today was too… Cruel.
Regardless of the Empress, the bloodshed at the Phoenix Mountain Villa, the death of those beautiful and lively girls, even if they had not seen it with their own eyes, was heartbreaking. Lin Shu didn’t have a deep friendship with the girls but he still felt very sorry for them. Then one could only imagine Xiao Shao’s feelings, who grew up in Phoenix Mountain Villa and kept company with these girls day and night.
The one who killed them was his Empress Mother.
Lin Shu could not imagine, this little phoenix with warm feathers, how disappointed and even desperate he was in his heart.
Perhaps if it was Xiao Shao of the past, he might not have been possessed and lost his sanity… But now Xiao Shao, even if these things had not happened, his mind was already at the verge of collapse because he had inherited the grievances of the world. Even the slightest negative emotion would push him to the direction of completely turning into a Demon.
Therefore, after today’s upheaval, Xiao Shao became this way, Lin Shu was not surprised.
As for whether Xiao Shao could recover, Lin Shu was really unsure.
Xiao Shao would not even recognize him, and perhaps he would kill him the way he killed the Empress in the next moment.
But Lin Shu knew he couldn’t leave.
Even if Xiao Shao was really no longer a human being, and was controlled by the resentment and grievances of the world, and became a High Demon Lord that would roam the world and bring about hatred of ghosts, Lin Shu would consider himself as having a black chick.
He took a few steps forward.
Xiao Shao didn’t move. He just stood in the sea of blood in this eternal night and looked at him.
His eyes were so cold and unspeakable.
Lin Shu walked very close to him and reached out to put his hand on the left side of his chest.
The heart, which was still beating like a normal person’s this morning, had completely stopped at this time.
He looked up at Xiao Shao and whispered, “Xiao Shao?”
Then he called out Ling Fengxiao, Big Miss, Your Highness and Shao gege. Even his cousin and brother had called, but there was no response. Xiao Shao felt disturbed by the noise and frowned in displeasure.
When this person was displeased, there was a chance that people would be turned into dust.
Lin Shu had to step back.
The next moment, Xiao Shao turned into a mist and dissipated.
The phantom body can only phantom away their own self, the other objects on the body, fell to the ground with a clang.
Xiao Shao had only one thing outside his body, that was the Guiltless Blade.
Lin Shu: “…….”
He felt a moment of suffocation.
He didn’t even take his blade, the situation was dangerous this time.
He picked up the Guiltless Blade and saw the Yi Ri Divine Arrow that had fallen at the side. After thinking about it, he took it with him.
Now, where to look for Xiao Shao?
He looked back blankly and saw that the way he came was already filled with a boundless sea of blood, and he couldn’t even see the road.
He let out his divine thoughts again, observing the situation in a thousand miles radius.
Phoenix Mountain Villa was submerged in the sea of blood mist, and the land thousands of miles around was covered by a dark night.
Perhaps, even the whole world was covered by this dark night, but his divine thoughts had a limitation and could not see beyond it.
The first priority was still to find Xiao Shao, as to whether he can be coaxed back to normalcy was another story.
Lin Shu walked through the Mountain Villa blankly holding the Guiltless Blade, but the blood mist was so dense that he could only see a foot around him. It was like a blind man touching an elephant and looking for a needle in a haystack — he even nearly hit the wall several times.
Lin Shu shouted “Xiao Shao” in the deep blood mist, and there was no response.
When he fell into despair, the Guiltless Blade suddenly trembled.
It seems that it was full of blood. The blood evil spirit of this blade was so thick that it almost dripped down. Guiltless had changed greatly compared to the original one.
Fruit also said, the Folding Bamboo Sword could be transformed into a person, the Identical Sorrow could be transformed into a person, all the weapons under the sky could be transformed into a person, but he didn’t want Guiltless to transform into a person after eating the spiritual fruit. This was because the blade’s evil aura was too heavy and blood was too thick. It was also an ancient divine weapon, so one could only imagine what a brutal person this blade could turn into.
But at this time, Lin Shu didn’t care too much. Guiltless Blade’s strength increased which means its spiritual intelligence increased. The weapon was connected with the master’s spirit. It may be able to perceive Xiao Shao’s location.
When asked, “Do you know where he is?”
Guiltless Blade trembled again.
It seemed to know.
Lin Shu: “Show me the way.”
Immediately, he felt a tugging force on the Guiltless Blade in his hand, leading him in a certain direction in the dark.
He followed Guiltless’ guidance and went in an unknown number of directions before he finally vaguely recognized the scenery around him. He had been to this place before.
This was Big Miss’ room.
The room drawers were stuffed with a lot of gold and silver jewelry, beaded hairpin and dresses.
The Phoenix Villa Headmistress was strict. The girls in the Villa bought too bright things and didn’t dare to take them by themselves. The girls had entrusted the Big Miss to hide them on their behalf.
In the main hall of the room, he saw Xiao Shao.
He walked over and called out the various names and tested Xiao Shao’s heartbeat.
Xiao Shao was impatient with this noisy chatter and moved away in a flash.
Lin Shu continued to look.
He caught the chick again in the main hall of Phoenix Mountain Villa.
The chick teleported again.
He caught him again in the Sword Training Hall.
He ran away again.
Lin Shu no longer remembered how many places he had searched. He was simply exhausted, and even Guiltless Blade must be very tired.
Xiao Shao didn’t kill Lin Shu. Instead whenever Lin Shu caught him, Xiao Shao just looked at him, and teleported away.
Lin Shu didn’t know how long it took. He finally caught up with Xiao Shao again and found that he was familiar with this place.
In the lake, where the red lotus swayed.
It was the view outside the wedding room. He followed the Guiltless Blade’s guidance to the Lake Pavilion.
Xiao Shao was dressed in gorgeous black clothes, with his inky hair, half-bundled up. He was upright with a noble temperament. His back was facing him. Looking at his back, Lin Shu felt that Xiao Shao seemed desolate and lonely.
Lin Shu had no other way, so he went forward and continued to call: “Xiao Shao? Shao Ge? Ge?”
Xiao Shao, this time, did not even look at him, directly frowned, and then expressionlessly grabbed Lin Shu’s shoulder.
A cold aura enveloped his whole body, and Lin Shu immediately felt the fear of being near-death.
He couldn’t die yet, so he struggled: “You can’t kill me, I’m your-”
Before he could finish his words, he was brought forward by Xiao Shao, with extreme roughness, but not with the intention of killing.
Lin Shu shut up.
He was thrown into the room by Xiao Shao.
Oh, not the room, but on the bed in the room.
Lin Shu was horrified, however, thinking about it, I see you have not forgotten anything.
But the next moment, Xiao Shao turned around and left.
After leaving, he closed the door.
Lin Shu: “?”
He was ready to feed the devil with his body, and he left?
The chick seemed to have a strange logic.
He got up from the bed and walked to the door, ready to push it open and continue to try to catch the chick.
The moment his fingertips just touched the door frame, he abruptly stopped.
Wisps of black aura, starting from his fingertips, wrapped around his hand, and then like a vine, wrapped around his arm and waist. One of them split and wrapped around his neck, dragging him back.
This aura was clear and pure. It was from Xiao Shao. Unlike the blood mist which was condensed from resentment, this was Xiao Shao’s own spiritual power.
Since it came from Xiao Shao, Lin Shu’s cultivation couldn’t resist.
Sure enough, the resistance failed.
Lin Shu: “?”
This was to prevent him from going out?
