Chapter 1793 Qiuqiu’s Sacrifice
Qiao Mu caught the fruit and looked around her. “Qiuqiu, where are you?”
She didn’t hear from Qiuqiu anymore, but the water child stumbled toward her as the space they were in shook.
It clutched to Qiao Mu’s skirt with two transparent arms and urged, “Masta, Masta, quickly eat it.” Qiao Mu also knew that she was in critical condition right now. An advanced-level zombie had bitten her arm. Under these circumstances, she was going to zombify in less than 15 minutes. However, she could clearly sense that there seemed to be an intangible force inside her body suppressing the corpse poison.
Even though Qiao Mu was puzzled, she had no time to ponder over it, and she quickly swallowed the fruit at Little Water’s urging.
“Where did this fruit come from?” Qiao Mu hastily asked, “Where is Qiuqiu? Why didn’t Qiuqiu come out to see me?”
The water child immediately hung its head and whimpered, afraid to answer her. “Where is Qiuqiu??” A bad premonition slipped past Qiao Mu’s mind. She quickly caught the water child in her hands and questioned sternly, “Quickly tell me the truth.”
“Waa, just now, just now when that thing bit Master. Qiuqiu had Little Earth and I help hasten its growth. So that it could flower and bear fruit faster!”
Qiao Mu’s heart sank to the bottom of her stomach. “And then? This is a sacred fruit?”
She remembered Qiuqiu telling her that it could flower and bear fruit. The resulting sacred fruit could make her cultivation soar by at least two levels.
So she had always thought that Qiuqiu’s fruit could at most be used for level advancement.
But it turned out that it could also detoxify corpse poison?
“Then how about Qiuqiu?” Qiao Mu couldn’t stop her voice from turning grave in her anxiousness.
Qiuqiu was only in the late-toddler stage right now. Forcibly hastening its growth right now would certainly do it no good at all.
Qiao Mu gave the water child such a scare that it burst out in tears. “Qiuqiu, Qiuqiu fell unconscious. Li-Little Earth is taking care of
Hearing this, Qiao Mu’s eyes reddened. She struggled to utilize her inner sight, wanting to go see Qiuqiu.
Yet the water child hastily latched onto her and pleaded, “Master, Master. Please advance first. If you continue on like this, the spiritual energy will explode inside your body.” “No, I must first take a look at Qiuqiu.” Qiao Mu asserted while clenching her fists.
Qiuqiu had been steadfastly taking care of and helping her ever since her rebirth. Qiuqiu had given her too, too much. How could she just look on unfeelingly when it was in danger?
“Master.” The water child hung on to her and wailed, “Master, you’re bleeding from your skin. You have to block your senses and immediately enter closed-door cultivation. Master, you cannot drag it on any longer!”
How could Qiao Mu possibly heed the water child’s words right now? She anxiously delved in with her inner sight.
Sure enough, the sapling in her dantian looked luxuriant. Even though it wasn’t a towering tree, it was clearly visible that its growth had been forcibly hastened to the adolescent stage. Compared to its previous toddler stage, it had advanced by an entire stage.
However, Qiuqiu was in critical condition right now. Its roots were wilting rapidly, and its leaves were also slowly curling up and falling.
Little Earth was currently wrapped around Qiuqiu’s roots, trying its hardest to nourish and nurture it. But by the looks of Qiuqiu’s worsening condition, it was evident that Little Earth, which was only in the late-toddler stage, could not catch up to the rate that the sapling was withering at.
“Qiuqiu, how do I help you? How do I help you??” Qiao Mu’s eyes reddened at once as tears gushed out uncontrollably.
