The Yun Familys Ninth Child Is An Imp Chapter 716
Just as the Merman was about to speak, he suddenly clutched his head with his hands. It was obvious that he was in great pain. Ah, why cant I remember? My head hurts!
Ah! Brother Merman, dont think about it if you cant remember! Lets talk about something else. Yun Chujiu quickly changed the topic when she saw that the merman was in pain.
The Merman took a while to calm down, then said with a bitter smile, The person who trapped me here must have sealed off a part of my memory. In the beginning, I didnt even remember what I said to you just now. Maybe I only remembered a little after the seal was broken.
Brother Merman, who trapped you here? Can you still remember that?
The Merman shook his head. I cant. Ive been trapped here for more than ten thousand years!
Then, how did you survive these ten thousand years? Yun Chujiu asked curiously.
The Merman laughed self-deprecatingly. I dont know what methods the people who trapped me here used. After some time, some corpses of demon beasts and humans would appear on the round platform, and I would eat them. After a thousand years, there would occasionally be cultivators who would find their way in. No one could resist my illusions, and they were all eaten by me.
Yun Chujius heart moved. Big Brother Merman, can you let me see those corpses that appeared on their own?
A few days ago, a few more people happened to fall in. Theyre in that corner. Go and see for yourself! The Merman pointed to a corner in the west.
Yun Chujiu jumped over and saw the bodies of six people. Yun Chujiu saw that the nails of the six people were slightly blue, and her heart stirred. She further inspected the bodies before she returned.
Brother Merman, Im afraid that you will gradually lose your memory. Its not just the seal. Those people were all poisoned to death. After you eat them, the poison will naturally seep into your body. Over time, your memory will be completely lost. Moreover, the poison will make you lose your mind and even go crazy.
The merman was stunned for a moment before he smiled bitterly. The person who trapped me was really cunning. If thats the case, why didnt he just kill me? Could it be that he wanted to torture me?
We merfolk have never eaten humans. To survive, I had to become as brutal as those low-level demon beasts. Perhaps this is the persons goal. Not only did he destroy our people, but he also wanted to turn me into a demon!
Brother Merman, I see that your spiritual power is quite high. Cant you do anything to this iron chain? Yun Chujiu saw that the merman was about to fall into madness again, so she quickly changed the topic.
This is a Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Darksteel chain. Ive tried countless methods over the past ten thousand years, but I still cant get rid of this chain. Only the person with the key can open it, the Merman said with a bitter smile.
Yun Chujiu recalled that the cage that Xue Wuji had trapped her in back then was also made of Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Darksteel. It was indeed extremely tough and could not be opened without a key, however, Big Brother Merman, isnt the Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Darksteel able to trap spiritual power? Why can you still create illusions and even use them to obtain food?
The Merman said proudly, Our merfolk race cultivates differently from other races. What we cultivate is not spiritual power but elemental energy. Therefore, this Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Darksteel can not trap our elemental energy.
Yun Chujius heart moved. Big Brother Merman, Im afraid this is the reason why that Old Bastard Tian Dao sent down the heavenly punishment. He will suppress those who might threaten him. Like how I have the Heavenly Thunder Spirit Root in me, so he keeps trying to kill me because of it.
