The Couple’s Challenge (3)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Fu Xiaotian was no longer the romantic gentleman that he was before entering the desert; he reprimanded Le Yingying for drinking too much water during their stay here and even began to stop supplying her with any.
The cruel reality for survival shredded the veil of ‘love’ that the two had for one another, revealing their true nature deep down.
On the third day, the two love birds began to calculate and ration how much water they could drink to the point where they fought with each other.
Di Hao was hiding in the dark, watching them arguing from day to night, and then he asked the pink candle dragon next to him, “Is it true that everyone who comes here will argue?”
The pink candle dragon nodded, “Most of them. Some started to fight early on, and some took time to break down. This desert is a bit strange. How quickly it took for them to feel hungry and thirsty was not based on their skills or abilities, but the degree of loyalty they had for each other. The earlier they fought, the faster they got hungry; the later they fought, the later they got hungry. I had seen a very persistent couple that survived for a month. During that time, the man even cut the flesh on his arm for his lover to eat. But in the end, the woman killed him, just to drink his blood.”
Di Hao remained silent.
Perhaps, fate wanted to teach him a lesson about love and give him a phobia toward relationships.
“What happened next?” he asked.
“Then, the woman lived on the flesh and blood of the man for two more days. But after that, she died from the heat. Before she died, she really regretted what she had done. She frequently shed tears and called the man’s name…”
“The flesh and blood of her lover supported her for only two days?” Di Hao did not believe it.
“When she killed the man, the man’s flesh and blood immediately became rotten; she couldn’t consume it anymore.”
Di Hao felt rather uncomfortable by the sharing he heard.
In the beginning, he thought that the woman who made this desert had been getting more hot-tempered, which resulted in the temperature rising. Now, he was wondered if she was the demonic side of his mother. Perhaps, the person behind this desert used the resentment between the couples as a form of nutrients to grow this place.
Also, it seemed that the only way to break out of here was to get rid of that demon.
However, this demon had surely grown stronger after feeding on the couples for more than 10,000 years; it was probably even more powerful than the Omen.
If he were in his prime, he might have a chance of defeating her and turn the sky into ashes, but now…
His small body no match to her!
Although this was a demon from his mother’s past life, she should not know him and would not show him any mercy. So what can he do?
He was so worried!
When he was thinking of a way to get out, the pink candle dragon beside him suddenly hooked his sleeves with its claws, “She is here! She is here!”
Di Hao was surprised that she had returned! It seemed that the woman in white appeared out of thin air!
He quickly asked the pink candle dragon, “Are we going to dive into the ground this time?”
The pink candle dragon shook its head, “No, you can watch the show this time.”
Di Hao sat to watch what would happen next.
The couple that was fighting suddenly stopped when the darkness suddenly surrounded them; then, they saw the woman in white.
Le Yingying called out, “The Drought Demon! The demon has emerged!”
Di Hao was speechless.
Such an idiot! Although this woman was not a fairy, she was not a demon either, okay?!
If she were, they would already be dead.
Fu Xiaotian also breathed a sigh of relief, “We finally scammed her out!”
Di Hao frowned when he heard that. Was this couple just pretending to fight?
If they did, this would be interesting!
The woman stared at Fu Xiaotian, “Do you really love her? Can you sacrifice anything for her?”
