Chapter 199: Fright

    Chapter 199: Fright

    Translator: Tim  Editor: Chrissy

    Ning Qingxue quickly came to the place where they set up camp last time. It was an open space and it was in the middle of the day but Ning Qingxue had a frosty feeling.

    She subconsciously shivered; the dead silence made her skin tingle. She remembered there used to be bird humming here when they camped here, but now, it was just dead silence. If it wasn't for Ye Mo, she wouldn't come here a second time no matter what.

    She carefully walked over to the camp site. Not far ahead was the sky ditch; the large hole was still there, and there were no marks around. However, Ning Qingxue felt a sudden frosty feeling coming at her as though something was trying to grab her.

    Ning Qingxue was so scared that she didn't dare to move. She realized that it seemed to be blurry ahead. The Evil Repellent Charm near her chest spread a warmness which dispersed quick.

    Ning Qingxue seemed to have heard a sharp scream. It was the same scream they heard that day. Then, she felt that approaching frosty feeling disappear and so did the tingling of her skin. The misty environment also seemed to have cleared up.

    "Is it really useful?" Ning Qingxue subconsciously touched it. Although she didn't know what happened just then, she felt it was related to the charm at her chest.

    The sky ditch was still the same but just without that frightening feeling. Ning Qingxue took a deep breath and continued forward avoiding the hole.

    A shoe appeared in front of her, giving her quite a scare. She quickly avoided it. It was a military shoe, was it from the rescue team?

    Ning Qingxue didn't dare to keep thinking. She had the feeling that something was constantly looking at her but afraid to close in. It should be due to the Evil Repellent Charm. Thinking about this, Ning Qingxue didn't dare to linger around and quickly ran towards the cliff.

    After running out a few kilometers. Ning Qingxue just realized that her clothes were torn up. However, there was still that almost indiscernible feeling that she was being watched.

    She suddenly turned around and her skin tingled again. She looked nervously at a place. She felt that thing was there. That feeling was very strange, not logical at all. But after experiencing all this, she was no longer a non believer.

    She held tightly the Fireball Charm, looked behind her, waved the charm and said, "I don't care what you are, but if you dare to come close, I will burn you with the fireball. I'll will get my husband to eradicate your soul later."

    Although Ning Qingxue shouted this out, it was just to boost her courage. She didn't know if her feelings were right. Perhaps she was just scaring herself, but this was all she could do.

    That frosty feeling seemed to have kept staring at Ning Qingxue for a while, but it also seemed to be scared of Ning Qingxue's words and slowly disappeared.

    Ning Qingxue felt it when that the frigidness disappeared and immediately turned and ran. Despite carrying a big bag and having obstacles everywhere, Ning Qingxue still ran out a few kms in one breath before dropping the bag and catching her breath desperately.

    What made her feel safe was that frosty feeling finally disappearing and there were birds humming again. She didn't know if she was scaring herself, but perhaps there really was those unexplainbale things in the world. She rested for a while before taking out some cream and rubbing it on her skin. Her snowy white skin had marks everywhere.

    Ning Qingxue rested a while before looking around. This was a valley and a small stream ran by Ning Qingxue. It seemed very poetic but Ning Qingxue didn't have that feeling at all. She was on high alert. If it wasn't because she could find Ye Mo in front, perhaps she would've collapsed.

    She drank some water and packed her bag. Just when she wanted to stand up, a black shadow dashed over. The speed was so fast that Ning Qingxue couldn't even react.

    Stump, the black shadow bumped into a barrier that arose in front of Ning Qingxue and was thrown into the stream. However, it quickly crawled out and looked at Ning Qingxue with terror. It turned and ran.

    If there wasn't the splash of water at the stream, people would've thought it was a blur of the eye.

    Ning Qingxue realized now that the animal that ran away seemed like a feral monkey. She subconsciously looked at her bracelet. Another bead broke.

    She didn't even get into the depths and lost another ebad. She didn't know how long she could use the Evil Repellent Charm for. She just used it once, but luckily, she had two. If it weren't for those, she might've died many times just then.

    Her back sweated and she didn't dare to stay. She ran quickly towards the cliff. She was feeling lucky. If she didn't ask about how to use the charms at Ning Hai, she wouldn't even have made it here.


    After being ambushed twice, Ye Mo was more careful. He knew there was danger everywhere and anything could happen. He wasn't afraid of attacks but instead afraid of bitten with venom. In that case, he would die since he had no medicine nor could he use his chi.

    A thorny bush blocked Ye Mo's path. He looked around, but the visibility was too low, not to mention he still couldn't use his spirit sense now. As for what was inside the thorns, he didn't know. However, he knew that if he didn't make a way, he could only retreat.

    If he couldn't find a safe place to recover, he would still die.

    He would die either way so he didn't care and hacked towards the bush with his sword.

    He had to admit that Bian Po's sword was good indeed. The strong looking thorns were like hay under his sword.

    He carefully hacked the thorns aside and made a way. Ye Mo didn't know how large this pact of thorns were but he hacked for more than half an hour before seeing the other side. It was a cliff face.

    This cliff face seemed very wide. Ye Mo thought that if he could make a hole on the cliff face and cover the entrance with thorns, then he only needed to find some food and could recover safely.

    With hope in sight, although he was extremely tired and dizzy, his sword didn't stop at all.

    When Ye Mo finally hacked his way through, there was a buzzing sound. Ye Mo looked and discovered there were tens of huge wasps charging at him. The wasps hid in the thorns, if they didn't move, they wouldn't be seen at all.

    Each one was the size of a fist. He didn't need to look to know that it was pretty much one life gone if he was stung. Plus, tens of them charged at him. Ye Mo's sword turned into a veil of blade images.

    Although his sword technique wasn't as good as Bian Po, it wasn't hard for him to make a veil of sword images. It was just that his body was too weak now.

    After a while, none of this group of wasps ran away as they were all killed by Ye Mo.

    Ye Mo coughed and subconsciously looked around. There only seemed to be these wasps. He let out a gasp of relief and shook as he almost fell over. However, he used the sword to support him and stopped wobbling.

    A putrid stench came from behind him. Ye Mo immediately knew it wasn't good; he was scared of being coiled by a anaconda the most but it came. He only noticed it when the stench was behind him.

    Ye Mo charged forward and swung his sword back. However, he had another fit of weakness. He couldn't even hold up the sword in his hand. The hack and slash before had used up his energy.

    It was just a brief moment and a cold stench, and he was already coiled. The snake didn't bite him but was trying to strangle him to death.

    Ye Mo also felt himself suffocating. His head started to grow dizzy drastically, but he knew that if he fainted, he would die for sure.

    He bit down on the tip of his tongue and spat out a mouthful of blood. He forcefully twisted the sword in his hand using all of his might to lever it to the outside.
