Chapter 271: Establishing A Passageway

The serum-filled bullet entered Ka Daiwen’s body. It affected the rapid dissolution of her cells. Her vital signs were disappearing fast. Qiao Yi went insane and channeled whatever energy he had remaining into Ka Daiwen.
It was not enough! He desperately stood atop the highest peak so he could let Ryle have one last look. If she was not with him, to begin with, would there still be any meaning to anything at all?
Qiao Yi hissed madly, causing dragon chants to fill the sky and rock the earth. Xu Lan’s ears bled as a result!
“Cough cough, Qiao Yi, send me to the Mother Nest.” Ka Daiwen handed over her engagement ring, but Qiao Yi’s dragon claws were so robust that the ring could not fit.
“No! NO! It’s okay, Ryle, you’ll be fine!” His stiff bones were not able to simply bend. All he could do was hug Ka Daiwen in emptiness as he frantically wore the ring on his fingernail and exclaimed sadly.
Dragon chants were sounding urgently and rapidly beside his ear. All of a sudden, the vegetation began losing its fresh green color, and the ground started to crack. The clan members – who were barely alive – collapsed to the ground; they roared and screamed in a mess of confusion. The sky turned dark in an instant, while blood was streaming out of Xu Lan’s eyes, nostrils, and mouth.
“Why did it turn out like this?” With a bloodstained mouth, Xu Lan ran hurriedly over to Bai Wu, and even the latter could feel his energy slowly draining away.
Qiao Yi continuously absorbed every single energy source available to him. As long as it was a source of energy – be it the earth, a river, grasses, or trees – he absorbed it.
“Ptoo, cough cough, Qiao Yi, stop it!” Ka Daiwen looked at the change in the surroundings and shouted alarmingly.
Qiao Yi, however, was deaf to his surroundings. He even channeled his own energy into Ka Daiwen’s body, but most of her internal organs were suffering from various degrees of injury.
“Xu Lan.” Bai Wu transformed into his human form and crawled to Xu Lan’s side. Xu Lan’s energy was draining comparatively slower, perhaps because he was not originally a part of that world. Even so, his flesh and muscle had shrunk by about twenty percent. Dragons who were of lower status had already turned into an empty, skin-wrapped skeleton! The remaining portion of their bodies had disappeared.
“Bai Wu, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have interfered. I saw… I saw that he was still attacking you even though you were unable to defend yourself.” Xu Lan was experiencing a fear that he had never experienced before. He had meddled in the affairs of Bai Wu’s clan, and he was afraid to invoke Bai Wu’s wrath.
“Mm. I know. Can you open up the passageway?” Bai Wu did not ask how he managed to slip from Tang’s grasp and return. Instead, he tried his best to curl his lips into a smile.
“…” Bai Wu’s heart ached when he looked at Xu Lan’s bloody face. He reached out to Xu Lan’s face to wipe them off, but fresh blood came pouring out once more. Xu Lan remained silent.
“First things first, establish the passageway. In a moment, Tang and I will send Qiao Yi to the Mother Nest. Then we’ll leave together!” Bai Wu said and did not let Xu Lan have a say on the matter. He placed his bloodstained hands on Xu Lan’s face and stroked gently.
“Can we really leave together? I still have another bullet in my gun.” Xu Lan trembled as he took the handgun from his waist. Out of the five bullets, there was one remaining.
“Yes. Cover your ears!” Bai Wu kissed Xu Lan’s forehead while saying so, his expression turned gloomy.
As soon as Xu Lan covered his ears, Bai Wu seized away all the equipment that Xu Lan had on him. Bai Wu quickly found the injection and gave Tang a look. The passageway was then opened.
“Bai Wu. I will leave. Just let me look at you a bit more.” Xu Lan stared deeply into Bai Wu’s golden eyes. He was unable to determine if it was blood or tears that were flowing out. The atmosphere was distinctly tranquil, but the wind was blowing fiercely as if it was also in tears.
Bai Wu stood motionless. They both looked silently at each other as though they were trying to etch the memories of each other deep inside their minds. White fog then rose abruptly and Bai Wu disappeared within it. Tang stood immediately in Xu Lan’s way and forced him to leave.
He could not, he could not let Xu Lan stay there. He could not bear to imagine the consequences if Xu Lan were to see him die since Xu Lan already saw it once back in the catacomb. Bai Wu no longer had any energy to fight Qiao Yi; the latter had already destroyed the entire dragon clan.
