Beastmaster of the Ages

Chapter 1941: Parasite Soul

Tianming couldn't even fathom something like that happening. Qingyu and Yu Ziqian basically didn't have any ties with one another—they only ever interacted when he brought her some medicine. Tianming deeply trusted Yu Ziqian, as they had fought together back in the Voidsky Realm. He had even obtained the Divine Worldeater Cauldron for him, so he believed he could trust him. Yin Chen had also never reported that he’d interacted with the celestial orderians in any way.

"Don't tell me it isn’t the celestial orderians?" There would be time later for pondering. They quickly went back to the ship. While the path back was short, Tianming and Lingfeng's hearts nervously beat nonstop from the disbelief and worry. Tianming already felt like his sister had been put through so much already, and now, out of nowhere, Yu Ziqian was going to cause her even more trouble.

There weren't many people left in the Ninedragon Imperial Tomb. Tianming and Lingfeng had left to fight Sovereign Sanctquility not long before, leaving only Yu Ziqian, Weisheng Moran, and Qingyu within. Weisheng Moran had tagged along because her powerful divine wonders would be a huge help, but Yu Ziqian's participation hadn't been in their original plans. His skills weren't what they needed for the current situation, but he had insisted on coming to contribute to the Myriad Solar Sects regardless.

Tianming and Lingfeng were greeted with a sight that enraged them. The purple-haired Yu Ziqian was giving off a sinister aura as he pulled Qingyu's left hand with one hand and held a miniaturized Divine Worldeater Cauldron in the other, covering her head with it. The opening of the cauldron was choking her out! Tianming also spotted a fine detail: one of Yu Ziqian's arm also had a large bulge that seemed to have exploded into hundreds of black, hair-like threads that tied themselves around Qingyu's arm. Their tips dug into the tenth bump on her arm!

The two of them immediately kicked into action, filling the entire place with their killing intent.

"Don't be so rash, gentlemen! Otherwise, I'll have my cauldron shrink and crush her ugly head. You don't want her to turn into meat paste, do you? Hahaha!" Yu ZIqian laughed maniacally, his mouth appearing much larger than before. A black miasma wafted out from the depths of his mouth. He did in fact hold Qingyu's life within his hands. Not even Shuo Yue could do much after leaving her lifebound space.

As for Weisheng Moran, her eyes were red with tears. She didn't know Yu Ziqian that well, apart from the fact that he was Tianming's friend. "Qingyu suddenly felt unwell just now, and he said that he had a pill that could relieve her symptoms. He came to help, and then...." She seemed confused and was blaming herself for what happened.

"It's not your fault. None of us expected this," Tianming said. He suppressed the killing urge in his heart and forced himself to calm down, lest he lose control of the situation. He also had to make sure Lingfeng didn't do anything reckless.

Lingfeng had already absorbed quite a lot of terrae and was covered in a sinister black miasma. The Soulfiend pressed its arms on the ground, glaring at Yu Ziqian. He didn't speak, but he kept taking steps forward. The power in his body was reaching a point of losing control, as was apparent from his bloodshot eyes. The killing intent caused Yu Ziqian to take a few steps back, but he recalled the hostage he had and smiled. Qingyu yelped in pain as he gave the Divine Worldeater Cauldron a few knocks.

That cry raised the tension within the ship even more. Tianming hurriedly stopped Lingfeng; losing control would do nobody any favors. He took a deep breath to suppress his rage. "Brother, there's no need to do this, right? If you have anything to say, you can tell me. Our priority right now is stopping the invasion of Skywolf. Not to mention, I can't figure out what problem you'd ever have with me."

"Brother? Who's your brother? Look closely at who I am!" Yu Ziqian laughed and his facial features exploded into dust before reforming into a completely different face. Even the gender changed!

Tianming felt a chill throughout his entire body and almost vomited blood. That was the face of the voidheart worm! He couldn't figure out how Yu Ziqian had become the voidheart worm out of nowhere. Seeing Lingfeng almost lose control again, Tianming forcefully held him down.

"Li Tianming, I told you I wouldn't die that easily! Now, you finally see! Hahahaha!" The womanly face contorted unpleasantly as it laughed.

Tianming was enraged and confused. There were far too many questions and doubts in his heart, but he knew that rage wouldn't solve anything. Since he was dealing with the voidheart worm, he knew he couldn't lose his head here. It had limited intelligence, so he had to stay calm and play to his strengths.

"You're still alive? How’d you do it?" Tianming feigned horror and inserted a hint of fear in his voice.

"Hehehe.... People think that my only body is powerful, but they don’t know that my soul is just as resilient as well. My child spawn can parasitize things, and so can my soul! Hiding in a soul...." It stopped talking and glared at Tianming.

"Soul? Parasitizing?" Tianming gave Lingfeng a look. The latter was a master of the soul, yet he furrowed his brow and said, "Brother Tianming, Gan Gangan's soul is complete, but there have been changes. That's probably what it’s talking about."

"Does that mean that he's dead?" Tianming felt slightly relieved that his friend hadn't betrayed him, but that didn't change the fact that he had become a victim. How had Yu Ziqian's soul been infested by the voidheart worm? He racked his mind and thought of a key vector: the Sky Palace stigma.
