Chapter 1686 Transforming Clone Charm
As the two of them were talking, several sudden flashes of light appeared, and with it came martial energy sharp as blades that charged toward them.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Clang! Clang! Clang!
The bursts of martial energy hit Evangeline and were promptly shattered into pieces. However, her body remained unscathed.
The woman’s body could withstand the attack of a sacred martial arts relic, let alone a few bursts of martial energy.
Kai remained in one piece since he was hiding behind Evangeline.
However, Flaxseed was not that lucky. Those bursts of martial energy that originated from a charm cut his body, and blood gushed out of his wounds.
“What the f*ck? There are still charms that haven’t been activated?” he cursed out loud angrily.
Seeing the state that he was in, Kai chortled.
“What are you laughing at?” Flaxseed pinned him with a withering look.
However, at the sight of Kai remaining unharmed from hiding behind Evangeline, he promptly rushed over to join him.
“Mr. Flaxseed, didn’t you say it’s not manly to hide behind a woman?” Kai teased.
Hearing that, Flaxseed immediately protested, “I’m not hiding behind a woman. This is a corpse; she’s not a human, so she can’t be called a woman.”
Instead of replying to him, Kai put his guard up and made his way forward carefully.
Both men hid behind Evangeline and inched forward step by step.
Soon, they reached the gate of Skywrath Sect’s ancient ruins, at which Kai stopped because he dared not proceed forward.
“Mr. Flaxseed, where is the charm spell? I won’t be going in even if you insist,” Kai said to Flaxseed.
Flaxseed replied, “We don’t have to go in. Our destination is right beside it.”
He then led the other two to a path aside.
Soon, a huge boulder covered with symbols Kai did not recognize appeared in their sight.
“What is this?” Kai asked.
“This is a charm boulder, and on it is the charm spell,” Flaxseed revealed.
“D*mn, it’s right here. Can’t you memorize everything yourself?” A wave of fury crashed through Kai. How could Flaxseed trick me into coming all the way here when the charm spell is right here?
Flaxseed stared at Kai quietly. Suddenly, a smile tugged at his lips as he said, “Do you think I can utilize the charm spell once I memorize it? How naïve of you. If it’s that easy, everyone will be able to master charm spells.”
“Then how can one master them?” Kai was surprised.
“One will have to tame the charm spirit to master an advanced charm spell like this. It isn’t as simple as memorizing the charm spell,” Flaxseed explained patiently.
“The charm spirit?” Kai was confused, for it was the first time he had ever heard about charm spirits.
“There is a charm spirit in every advanced charm spell. To master the charm spell, one will have to tame its charm spirit. Do you understand now?” Flaxseed had no choice but to explain everything again in detail.
“Go tame it, then!” Kai urged.
Flaxseed was speechless. “I wouldn’t have had to ask for your help if I could tame it!” he retorted.
Kai regarded him with a look of despair on his face. “If I am able to tame the charm spirit, I will be the one to master the charm spell. What does that have to do with you?”
“After you master it, you can pass it to me. That way, I don’t have to tame the charm spirit.” Flaxseed revealed his plan as a smirk played about his lips.
“You…” To Kai’s dismay, he found himself at a loss for words.
In the end, he sighed and relented. “Fine. I’ll go tame the charm spirit.”
“You only have to put your hand on the boulder. This is a Transforming Clone Charm, so don’t trust anything you see,” Flaxseed exhorted.
“Okay, got it.”
With that, Kai reached out to touch that boulder.
At once, the symbols on the boulder radiated a blindingly bright light that enveloped him whole.
A white light flashed across his eyes, making him fall into a daze.
