Whose Life Are You Trying To Save?

She did not utter a word to Di Hao for the entire time that they traveled together.
The little one was acting weird as well; he only cared about Yun Yanli and never gave Ming-Die any attention.
When Yun Yanli had to be away for some errands, he would ask Ming-Die to take care of Di Hao for a while, but Di Hao was never keen on it. The way he looked at Ming-Die was always unfriendly. Sometimes even with a feeling of revulsion.
All in all, Di Hao and Ming-Die were deemed to be incompatible in many ways.
Yun Yanli was quite troubled by the tension, but he was at least happy to know that the boy relied on him. The little one is Xijiu’s child, so he thought it would be good if they could be close. In fact, he was glad to be needed and to have her child around. Little did he know that the child had a hidden agenda.
Still puzzled, Yun Yanli looked at Di Hao sternly. “Why did you have to make such a big plot involving me? If you really needed the other half of the Flood Dragon’s heart, you could have brought your father here. He would have done the same thing with ease.”
Why did the boy insist on playing the fool and following Yun Yanli around?
Di Hao explained, “The Flood Dragon has been cultivating for more than 10,000 years and has never hurt a single soul. From the way it cultivates, it will one day become a celestial being. It has to submit its heart of its own free will. We are not supposed to kill it or threaten it, or else the heart will lose its effect.”
Yun Yanli was surprised.
“What do you need half of its heart for?”
“Its heart can be used to purify even the darkest form of evil energy.”
“You said that you needed it to save a life. Whose life are you trying to save?”
Di Hao took a deep breath before answering, “A very close relative of mine.” There was no reason to lie to Yun Yanli, for he had helped to retrieve the heart.
“A close relative? Who is it?” Yun Yanli was baffled.
Di Hao only smiled at him. It was yet another heavenly secret.
With a sneer, Yun Yanli said nothing more and was ready to leave.
From the way Di Hao fought with the Flood Dragon, the boy’s Kung Fu was already so advanced that he would be just fine going on his own. Therefore, Yun Yanli found himself feeling a little foolish to think that the naughty boy actually needed his care and protection. Now that the boy already had what he wanted, Yun Yanli would not be of any good to him anymore.
However, Di Hao seemed to be still following him. “Where are you going?”
Yun Yanli did not even turn around to answer him.
With a sigh, Di Hao knew how much he had offended Yun Yanli. He decided to tell Yun Yanli from far behind, “Stay away from Ming-Die. She is not the one for you. You are going to endure plenty of suffering if you stick with her.”
With a hiss, he disdained the boy’s warning, for he knew how incompatible they were.
Ming-Die was his most loyal companion with a heart of complete dedication. Now that she was swept far away by the Flood Dragon, he felt obliged to find her.
Di Hao watched as Yun Yanli disappeared from his sight. He shook his head in disapproval, for he realized how soft-hearted Yun Yanli was for the woman. He would never be able to kill her, even though she would eventually become the greatest obstacle in his life.
Di Hao started thinking if he should help Yun Yanli as a favor for what the man had done for him. He felt the need to kill the woman.
When Di Hao found Ming-Die, she was unconscious. She had been sent flying through the air with such great force that she managed to bring down two trees with her before finally stopped at a big rock.
Her celestial physique managed to keep her alive even though she was fatally injured. Her breathing was very weak, like a candle flickering in the wind.
Di Hao looked at her for a while. Slowly, he raised his hand that was already loaded with a seven-colored ray.
He never liked killing a woman, especially one who was already fatally injured. It would hurt his dignity, but he needed to help Yun Yanli.
