Chapter 445 -I Will Be Responsible For You Part 3
A slight change in expression could be seen on Mu Ru Yue's face. Who would have expected that there would be such a ferocious beast in the Xiao family?
Even if this beast wasn't as powerful as it was in the past, it was still a force to be reckoned with.
"Fresh and beautiful human meat!"
Tao Tie sucked in a mouthful of breath before expressing a baby-like smile. That kind of smile and voice on such an ugly face only gave people the goosebumps.
"It has been such a long time since I had human meat. Since that is the case, I shall be unceremonious."
Tao Tie's body pounced in a flash toward Mu Ru Yue.
When the tyrannical aura of its enormous body pressed against Mu Ru Yue, she felt suffocated. Yan Jin and Xiao Bai were both anxious in the Alchemy Book, but they couldn't be of any help...
"Tao Tie, you are too gutsy. You dare to harm the painstakingly-found mother's body of This Emperor!"
Suddenly, a childish voice was heard from an unknown place. It alarmed the Tao Tie beast so much that it froze in midair. Its bodily hair rose as it expressed terror with its eyes.
That voice and that grandeur...
'How... how can that be? How can that fellow still be alive?'
"Tao Tie, if you dare to touch her, This Emperor will chop you up into countless pieces once This Emperor is born! Even your father won't be able to protect you! Quickly scram for This Emperor!"
Tao Tie's eyes slowly widened. An intense wave of fright washed over it that its body shivered.
'It is that monster! Why? Why is that monster here?
'Even if there is still a few more years before that monster is born, if I have to constantly stay on high-alert for the next few years, it will practically be a life worse than death!'
"No!" The Tao Tie shrieked. It looked terrified at Mu Ru Yue as it muttered, "Don't come near me. Don't come over..."
Mu Ru Yue was stunned as she looked shocked at the Tao Tie beast shrieking in fright. Under her puzzled gaze, the Tao Tie didn't stay anywhere close to her.
He leaped away as though it was trying to escape.
That speed was so rapid that it was as though someone was chasing after his life...
"What did I do?" Mu Ru Yue looked startled at the escaping figure of Tao Tie. "I don't think I did anything. Did it need to be so terrified?"
'Is my appearance that horrifying?'
"Forget it. I will continue to cultivate in the meantime."
Mu Ru Yue shook her head as she withdrew her gaze. She then sat with crossed-legs to started meditating. Following that, it was an astonishing sight...
Countless energy gathered from her surroundings, so much so that a white fog appeared. If it were the cultivating room of the academy, the energy there wasn't as dense as it was here. She didn't even need to cultivate hard before that energy entered her body voluntarily...
Yet, not all of the energy was being absorbed by her. There was a small portion that entered her lower abdomen before disappearing entirely.
Mu Ru Yue raised her hand to caress her lower abdomen as she knitted her long, shapely brows tightly and muttered, "What is happening? Why do I feel that the child in my womb is cultivating?"
'How is this possible? How can a child cultivate when it hasn't been born yet?
'Moreover, if it is normal pregnancy then at the fourth month of gestation, a small bulge should start to appear, but my lower abdomen remains flat as though there isn't life growing in it...'
"Perhaps the origin of this child isn't simple. If I can meet with Mu Rong Qing Chu, perhaps I will know his origin."
More importantly, the Tao Tie was initially and clearly unafraid of her. There wasn't anyone here except her. Could it have been due to this child?
