The Ladyboy (4)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Yun Yanli studied the area but did not find any hideout. There were only some corals, seaweed, green algae, and all kinds of fishes and sea creatures. Without the crystal palace to provide them with refuge, Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi couldn’t stay underwater for an extended period.
Disappointed, he started to doubt his thoughts. Could it be that Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi were never here? Had they gone to Leguo City instead? Perhaps, the squid man was just a distraction? It would appear that he fell for another trick.
Yun Yanli’s clenched his fists tightly in frustration. He had fought along with Gu Xijiu before, and the two of them had overcome many obstacles together, so he thought that he knew her style quite well. Gu Xijiu had once told him that the most dangerous place would often turn out to be the safest. Hence, they could be hiding in his residence back in Leguo City.
The sudden thought made Yun Yanli very anxious. He could no longer care about the squid man and wanted to return to Leguo City as soon as possible. However, in thedistance, he noticed some movements in the water, as if something swimming by him. Even though he was initially puzzled, the answer came to him very quickly when he caught the scent of the squid man.
Therefore, he had a change of plan. It would take him at least four hours to return to Leguo City, and there was a chance that he would find nothing there. Nonetheless, if the squid man was one of Di Fuyi’s trusted men, he could capture him and use him as a bait to drive Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi out of hiding. That way, he would have leverage on them rather than blindly chasing them around the place.
Yun Yanli quickly surveyed the area as he knew that the squid man was nearby.He knew that the man was swimming in different directions around him just to get him confused. Perhaps, the man was using some invisibility spell. This made Yun Yanli annoyed, and he could no longer suppress his urge to kill the creature. “Find your way through!” He called out while casting a spell.
All of a sudden, a streak of bright light surrounded Yun Yanli’s body and broke away in a violent expansion, transmitting energy outwards like a massive shockwave. Through the waves, the man could finally be seen.This time, he was wearing another set of dark blue robes, which shared the same color as the sea. Obviously injured, he shed some blood as soon as the waves brushed him through.
“Damn it, ladyboy! There is no way you can escape this time.”
His lips curved upward at its edges as a self-satisfied smirk appeared on Yun Yanli’s face. At that very moment, he started launching deadly attacks at the squid man that only a Great Deity was capable of performing.
The man noticed that things were taking a quick, dangerous turn, so he wanted to escape. A swift turn had caused him to run into an ice wall that blocked his way. Caught in a daze, he was still determined not to engage. He turned to another direction and soon realized that the surrounding water was quickly turning into ice. Soon, he was unable to move.
“How dare you challenge me, you insignificant squid monster! What an overconfident creature!” Yun Yanli stood before the big ice cube and looked at the squid monster with an egotistic smile.
The man was not able to move but was still conscious. “How blind!” He called out.
Yun Yanli did not quite understand the man’s reply. However, he could see that the man continued to wink his eyes charmingly. Soon, his long, thick lashes brushed across the surface of the ice. “Have you ever seen a squid monster with my unparalleled beauty?”
“What are you then?”
The man smiled as he said, “Guess.”
As attractive as a blossoming flower, his smiling face was the only thing that was worth paying attention to in the sea of plain, dull water. His eyes glistened along with his smile, which looked like stars in the night sky.The man was trying to use the Bewitching Spell to make Yun Yanli get rid of the ice cube. Only members of his species knew how to utilize this spell.
Yun Yanli smiled at him and added softly, “I hate guessing. If you refuse to tell me, I shall end your life right here.”
