“It’s your own fault; this is what you get for getting in our way!” The bucktoothed disciple pulled a chair over and sat down far away from the Curse Pool.
“I…I didn’t do anything… let me go… please let me go…” said the hoarse voice.
“Just stay in there, the longer you spend in the water, the better it is for you/ At least it will be easier for you to adapt to your new form. Otherwise, you will have the urge to bite every inch of your skin off every night.” The bucktoothed disciple sounded like he was sorry, yet he had no intention to save her.
“No…no, I don’t want to become those things, kill me, I’m begging you, just kill me…”
“It’s useless, even if you die now, your soul will still be bound to this Curse Pool,” replied the disciple.
The punishment given by the Black Vatican was the cruelest and most terrifying in the entire world. The bucktoothed disciple used to be an ordinary person, too. He accidentally offended the Gray Priest Lu Geng, and had no choice but to join the Black Vatican.
Once he became a disciple, there was basically no turning back. Those who opposed the Black Vatican never had a good ending!
“Is there any way to save her?” a new voice spoke up suddenly.
The bucktoothed disciple was the kind with a remarkably slow reaction. He turned around looking at the figure in the shadow and assumed him to be some other disciple sent here to guard the Curse Pool. He said, “I guess so. She is still an ordinary person as long as the ritual isn’t completed yet… oh, you’re quite unlucky to be sent here too.”
“Oh, I’ve come to collect the payment,” the figure walked up to the bucktoothed disciple and patted him softly on the shoulder.
The bucktoothed disciple suddenly realized something. He was about to make his move when he felt a strong electric current spreading through his body from the man’s hand.
“You…” The disciple’s face contorted from the electric shock before he could even finish his sentence. It felt like millions of ants were biting inside his body. It was numbing yet painful, and he was also immobilized!
Lightning arcs continued to flicker on Mo Fan’s palm. The numbers kept increasing.
A burned smell lingered in the air. The bucktoothed disciple’s body turned scorched black. He fell to the ground like a lump of burned meat.
The bucktoothed disciple was obviously not a Magician. He usually commanded the Dark Beast Monsters to commit his evil deeds. As the lightning arcs reached a certain intensity, his flesh was no longer able to withstand the shock, and his heart finally stopped beating.
Mo Fan remained expressionless. He brought out the bottle that he took from Yang Qiao and slowly poured the liquid on the disciple’s corpse. Not long after, the corpse began to corrode severely. In less than a minute, even the bones and teeth had disappeared, leaving a pool of black goo behind.
“Are you Wang Xuxu?” asked Mo Fan.
“Yes….yes! Are…are you here to save me?!” said the person in the pool.
“I can’t save you yet,” Mo Fan told her.
Mo Fan was currently in the Black Vatican’s nest. It was easier for him to move alone. If he brought Wang Xuxu, whose body was severely damaged with him, he would easily expose himself.
Normally, Mo Fan would force his way out, but the poison had stopped him from acting rashly.
“Then please kill me, relieve me from this…” said Wang Xuxu.
“I swore I wouldn’t do anything like that again. Are you feeling better?” asked Mo Fan.
“I think…I do feel better,” said Wang Xuxu.
She lifted her gaze and saw a man whose face was shrouded by the darkness. He looked familiar, yet she could not recognize him.
Mo Fan slowly withdrew his hand. He was casting a Space Spell, to create a space around Wang Xuxu to stop the Curse Water from touching her body. The Curse Water had to be corroding her boy slowly. She would not suffer too much as long as she was no longer soaking in the water.
Mo Fan opened the water pack he brought and sprinkled the content in the air.
He straightened his gaze. The water that was about to fall to the ground as water droplets immediately formed a streamline in the air, flowing straight to Wang Xuxu’s mouth.
“Drink some water, just hang in there,” said Mo Fan.
Wang Xuxu was seriously dehydrated. She drank the water greedily as it approached her mouth. She wanted the stream of water to splash at her like a huge wave, and relieve her from the dehydration.
“Are you feeling better?” asked Mo Fan.
“Yeah…I’m a lot better, thank you,” Wang Xuxu lifted her head. She was trying hard to see the man’s face.
She had experienced the worst torture in her whole life over the past few days. Even though she had only received slight help, it brought her a glimpse of hope. She was no longer devoured by darkness.
“As a girl, you should really ask for help earlier when you are in trouble. You shouldn’t just compromise and endure it, hoping that being obedient would make the guy treat you with mercy. You must know that every evil person will only become worse,” Mo Fan looked at Wang Xuxu and spoke in a helpless voice.
Mo Fan could tell that Wang Xuxu was a smart woman, yet she did not use her intelligence to protect herself. If she had exposed Zhao Pinlin’s evilness, if she had simply told Guo Wenyi anything, she would not have ended up like this.
Wang Xuxu was immediately in tears when she heard the words. Her tears were black due to the effect of the Curse Water, running along her initially attractive face…
“Are…are you going to leave me behind?” Wang Xuxu knew that the whole place was crowded with bad guys like Zhao Pinlin. She was scared that if the person left, he would simply forget about her. She was really terrified. She tried her best to remember who the person was, yet she could not remember anything.
Mo Fan looked at her. He did not know what to say for a moment.
The biggest threat had yet to show itself. Even Mo Fan’s life was at risk. How could he possibly promise someone that he could save them?
“The situation outside isn’t any better than what you’re going through here,” Mo Fan did not answer the question directly.
Mo Fan briefly explained about the poison.
Wang Xuxu seemed to know something. She blurted out to Mo Fan, “There was a woman. She seems to be the boss here!”
Mo Fan’s eyes flickered when he heard Wang Xuxu’s words!
“What does she look like? Do you know her name?” asked Mo Fan.
