Chapter 202: I...

    Chapter 202: I...

    Translator: Tim  Editor: Chrissy

    Ye Mo struggled and found that he was still powerless. It was probably because he exhausted himself too much. He carefully caressed Ning Qingxue's hair. It was very messy, but it still smelt nice.

    He didn't know how Ning Qingxue could arrive here. No one knew he came. If it was Han Yan, he wouldn't feel it strange, but he knew that even if Han Yan knew he fell off the cliff, she might not come.

    Even if Ning Qingxue knew he fell, how could she find this place? Shen Nong Jia wasn't really dangerous for him, but it was too dangerous for Ning Qingxue. It was a miracle she could reach here. Ye Mo really couldn't understand what supported her to come here?

    He felt her back and now realized that not only was her ligaments full of wounds but so was her back. How much pain did she go through to come here?

    Ye Mo held up her hand. It was a bloodied mesh. There was not a patch of good flesh. Ning Qingxue seemed to be hurt in her dreams and frowned but she still didn't wake up.

    At this moment, Ye Mo actually felt pain in his heart. He knew that Ning Qingxue had a good impression of him and might even be in love with him. He could tell by how she went to the desert last time. If Ning Qingxue went to Flowing Snake to repay her gratitude, then it wasn't that simple when she went to the desert. Now, she risked her life to come to the bottom of the cliff. Even if Ye Mo's heart was stone cold, he was touched by her actions.

    He once thought Ning Qingxue was just a pretty rich girl who was arrogant and thought they could never be in the same world. But now, he knew that he didn't completely understand this wealthy girl.

    Underneath her cold expression hid a fiery heart that was obstinate. Other than his master Luo Ying, who would treat him like this? It seemed he was too harsh to her before.

    Ye Mo felt her hair and remembered the words she said that night, "I really want to call you husband but I can't say it..."

    "I already married Ye Mo... that box is his wedding gift to me. Don't separate me with that box. There's a grass that I left for Ye Mo in the yard... if he comes, give this phone to him as well. If not, never mind..."

    He thought about the moment when he left her in the desert-that disappointment and yearning in her eyes. It seemed that she had a lot to say. He remembered the bloodied Silver Heart Grass and the small medical case that she hugged even when she was about to die.

    Was that love?

    Ye Mo lost himself as he thought about this...

    At this moment, the moon was high up in the sky shooting down faint rays on Ye Mo and Ning Qingxue that made everything seem so tranquil.


    The morning sun couldn't completely shine into the bottom but still a few rays passed through the mist. A wild crow's quack woke up Ning Qingxue.

    Ye Mo? As soon as she wanted to get up, she felt a pair of arms around her waist. Her clothes were tattered, and Ye Mo's arm was over her half naked body.

    Ning Qingxue blushed but felt warm at heart. In these few days of terror, she only felt safe in Ye Mo's arms. She felt a fit of hunger.

    Why did Ye Mo still not move? Ning Qingxue just realized this.

    What happened to Ye Mo? She started to panic again, but soon, she discovered that Ye Mo just fainted again and was just asleep. He still had breathing, but his lips cracked heavily.

    He's thirsty? No, he probably lost a lot of blood. Ning Qingxue quickly got up and put Ye Mo in a comfortable position before standing up. She should find some water for him.

    Now, she regretted drinking all the water. She should've saved it for Ye Mo. However, she forgot that if she didn't take it, perhaps she wouldn't even make it here.

    Ning Qingxue walked over to the snake that was killed and picked up Ye Mo's sword. She just realized this snake was more than 6 meters long. She really didn't know how Ye Mo killed it.

    Ning Qingxue put the sword beside Ye Mo and prepared to walk through the thorny passage, but halfway through, she saw a black shadow dash. Even though it was day time, she still couldn't see too clearly.

    She stopped her steps subconsciously as she recalled the eerie green eyes that gave her quite the fright last night. She had no defense now; if she went out, it would be suicide?

    She walked back again. If she died, what would happen to Ye Mo? Although she didn't know why the black shadow didn't dare to walk into the thorny brush, but she still used the sword to block the way with some thorny brush.

    There was a shadow that could dash to her in an instant, and Ning Qingxue no longer dared to go out.

    Ning Qingxue turned around and examined the place. The thorny brush covered quite a large area, around 5 to 6 acres. She looked at the dead snake and thought if this place was the snake's territory so other things didn't dare to come.

    As the sun gradually rose, Ning Qingxue saw more clearly. A few meters out, there were a few trees on the cliff face, but the smallest one was 4 meters tall.

    There were a few green fruits on the tree about the size of eggs. Other than those, there didn't seem to be anything edible elsewhere.

    She looked at Ye Mo who was still unconscious and started to dig on the cliff face. Ning Qingxue didn't expect the dagger to be so sharp that it wasn't hard digging into stone.

    She subconsciously looked at it. She picked it up at the top of the cliff but didn't expect it to be this sharp.

    4 meters high wasn't easy, but with the help of the dagger, she climbed up quickly.

    There were 5 fruits all together. Only 2 was half red, and the other 3 were still green.

    Although she picked 5, she didn't know if they were edible. She had never seen this fruit before. It looked like peaches, but she ate peaches yesterday and they didn't look like this.

    She bit one. It tasted sweet and was quite watery. She wanted to eat more after taking a bite, but she knew it was probably because she was too hungry. She resisted the urge to eat the rest and put it aside.

    After a while, she felt she was okay. This meant the fruit wasn't poisonous. Then, she took the fruit and walked up to Ye Mo and carefully helped him up. It was just like yesterday, she continued to press on his chest.

    After a while, Ye Mo woke up and looked apologetically at Ning Qingxue. He didn't talk,; he knew he had lost a lot of blood. If he didn't have a way to recover his chi, the result would be unknown.

    "You're awake, quickly eat something. I think you're a bit dehydrated now." Ning Qingxue gave the fruits to Ye Mo in joy.

    Ye Mo knew that he had to eat something and took one and started eating.

    "Where did you get this? It tastes really good, have you eaten?" Ye Mo felt he had recovered some and asked in surprise.

    "I've already eaten, I just don't like the taste of the fruit. Keep eating, there's another 4." Ning Qingxue passed the rest of them to Ye Mo.

    He looked at Ning Qingxue's lips and saw that she really seemed to have eaten. Then, he was rest assured and ate the remaining fruits. But at the 5th one, he saw this one seemed to have been bitten once. He looked at her in surprise.

    When Ye Mo looked at her, Ning Qingxue quickly said, "I ate a few just then, I don't really like the taste. I just bit one and I don't want it, you wouldn't mind me, right?"

    Ye Mo seemed to have understood something and smiled. He didn't talk. Although he didn't know how many Ning Qingxue ate, he knew that Ning Qingxue wouldn't dislike the fruit. Although it was a bit bitter, it still tasted pretty good.

    However, he didn't pass it back. If he didn't recover, it would be too dangerous here.

    Seeing Ye Mo finish the 5th one, Ning Qingxue finally let out a gasp of relief. She stood up and said, "I'll go out and see if there's anything else that is edible..."

    She just spoke one sentence and wobbled, almost falling over. She knew that she was too exhausted and couldn't hold much longer.

    Ning Qingxue turned around and gave Ye Mo a smile that she was okay. She wanted to find a place to rest and see if she could climb up to that tree 7 or 8 meters high.

    However, Ye Mo stood up slowly and held on Ning Qingxue's shoulder. He said apologetically, "Sorry, Qingxue, although I don't know how you know I'm here, but I probably brought this trouble on you."

    Ning Qingxue shook and slowly turned around. It was the first time Ye Mo spoke to her so gently. She could no longer resist the yearning and nervousness in her heart and rushed into Ye Mo's arms, "Ye Mo, I... I..."
