The Obsession (4)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
All of his thoughts at that moment were negative, so Di Hao naturally found himself quite depressed.
One day, some visitors disrupted their solitary time while Di Hao was leaning against the candle dragon and trying to get asleep.
A man and a woman showed up, both with seemingly excellent Kung Fu – at least the level of a Mighty Immortal.
They looked like a couple, as the man had never stopped stroking the woman’s waist. The woman enjoyed resting her face on the man’s chest, too, though rather bashfully.
Di Hao could finally feel what the candle dragon felt. The sight of visitors certainly excited him.
However, he decided to hold back and observe them first.
Meanwhile, the candle dragon just stayed where it was and did not bother. It was invisible to everyone, anyway. Its presence would not make any difference.
It was quite bothered by the heat in the desert, so seeing two visitors cuddling with one another was quite baffling to it. “Don’t they feel warm?” It turned to ask Di Hao.
Di Hao gave its scaled skin a gentle tap and signaled it to be quiet.
The couple did not seem very eager to explore the place. After a quick look around, they seemed only to want to make sure that they were alone. Once they determined that the area was clear, the man made the first move and gave the woman a hard squeeze. “Baby, we are finally at a place where no one can disturb us. Let’s get hot.” Soon, the man began to pant vigorously. He then gave the woman a series of long kisses.
Both of them embraced passionately in the desert as they rolled all over on the sandy ground, while eagerly undressing one another.
Di Hao never saw it coming. Awkwardly, he decided to take the pink candle dragon away from the scene. “Let’s take a walk somewhere else.”
Nevertheless, the pink candle dragon was now intrigued, so it refused to go. “Hey, what are they doing? Are they fighting? At least they are aware that the place is hot. They are stripped down to nothing.”
Di Hao did not have an answer for its confusion. With a spell, two pieces of handkerchiefs were pulled out from his sleeves to blindfold the pink candle dragon. “Little Pink, if you refuse to go, I will never talk to you again,” he threatened.
The threat seemed to work as the pink candle dragon followed him right away.
They did not go far. In fact, they stopped when they could no longer see or hear anything.
The pink candle dragon did not think it was a big deal at all. “They are just two people messing around. Is there anything inappropriate for us to see? I have seen many of them like that. Some started to fight as soon as they came in. Some took their time and fought later.”
That was a remarkable piece of information to Di Hao.
He suddenly thought of something. “Were they all couples? A man and a woman?”
“Yes, they all came in pairs,” the pink candle dragon answered with a nod.
Di Hao finally had a clue. Only couples were allowed to enter the desert!
Di Hao was not involved in any relationship yet, so without the pink candle dragon’s interruption, he would never have made it in here.
The realization prompted him to give the pink candle dragon a strange look. Innocently, the candle dragon had no idea what was going on in Di Hao’s head.
About an hour later, it was finally time for them to head back.
The couple was already done with their activity and were just sitting face-to-face and having a talk.
From their conversations, Di Hao learned about things from the outside world.
The continent was called the Collateral Shenwu Land. The desert lay within the very center of the continent, which happened to be a forbidden area for the inhabitants of the land.
In the desert, the sun never set, but the course of the sun remained normal in the outside world. The sun and the moon would rise and set as usual.
Life used to flourish on the continent, and the land used to be ablaze with blossoming trees and flowers. It was a lively place where crops continued to grow, and animals lived freely in the wild. All courses of life went on undisturbed.
However, as the desert expanded, its unrelenting heat affected the entire continent. Crops were unable to survive and died. Rivers dried, and life was becoming tougher by the day.
Many powerful men were dispatched to take a look at the desert, but it was difficult for them to get past the barrier. Even when they did, they never returned.
