Chapter 679 Burying the wine
Countless black threads of light passed through Zhou Yuan's body, reaching the location of the Dragon's Resentment Poison in the blink of an eye. Then, the black threads charged towards the Dragon's Resentment Poison.
Countless blood red threads exploded from the Dragon's Resentment Poison in an attempt to destroy the black threads.
However, the black threads were endless. They continuously charged through the blood red threads like black chains and rushed towards the core of the Dragon Resentment Poison.
The Dragon's Resentment Poison trembled violently.
Black thread after thread began to wrap around the Dragon Grudge Poison, slowly forming what seemed to be a black prison made of ancient runes, completely sealing the Dragon Grudge Poison within it.
The Dragon's Resentment Poison struggled violently, but the prison made by the Great Dragon Subjugation Rune was similar to the magma of the red threads, causing them to shrink when touched.
The wonders of the Great Dragon Subjugation Rune were finally revealed.
The Dragon's resentment poison fought for a long time. In the end, he realized the futility of his efforts and slowly began to huddle inside the prison.
When the poison stopped, Zhou Yuan finally felt the activity in his body begin to slow down. Drenched in sweat, he looked down at his palm with a sickly pale face where a black ancient rune had appeared.
The rune was composed of multiple black circles, and within the center most circle was a blood red dot. If one listened carefully, they would be able to hear the faint angry roar of an upset Dragon.
"It worked?" Zhou Yuan murmured.
In the past, Zhou Yuan had always felt as if there was an arrow pointing at his back when he looked at the Dragon 's Resentment Poison . It was a time bomb inside his body that could explode at any moment.
But now, she no longer had that feeling when she looked at him. The Great Dragon Subjugation Rune seemed to have worked.
The poison of the Dragon's resentment had been sealed and suppressed.
"Yes, you no longer have to worry about the Dragon's resentment poison erupting and attacking you." Yaoyao's voice rang from behind.
Zhou Yuan was alarmed when he heard it, because it sounded quite weak. He immediately turned around and saw a rarely seen pallor on Yaoyao's beautiful face.
Zhou Yuan hurriedly stood up and reached out to hold Yaoyao's slender arms as he said somewhat tenderly, "What happened to you?"
Yaoyao shook her head and said, "I'll be fine after I get some rest."
Zhou Yuan frowned. It felt like Yaoyao's core had been damaged. His eyes flickered thoughtfully before suddenly saying, “When the Dragon Resentment Poison broke through my defenses earlier, a mysterious purplish-gold substance appeared in my body and stopped the poison. What was that?"
He had tried to probe it before, but the mysterious purplish-gold substance seemed to have vanished without a trace, as if it was hiding in the deepest recesses of his body.
The mysterious substance gave Zhou Yuan an indescribable feeling.
Ancient, mysterious and powerful.
Yaoyao's eyes flickered for a moment as she replied, "You're overthinking things."
Zhou Yuan was helpless in the face of her denial. He knew that Yaoyao had too many secrets, things that his current self was still unable to understand.
Regardless, the elimination of the Dragon's Resentment Poison problem was cause for celebration. Since Yaoyao refused to talk about it, he wouldn't pressure her further.
Yaoyao sat by the table and retrieved a flask of Taoyao wine. He looked at Zhou Yuan as his lips curled up slightly. "We will use this to celebrate that you no longer have to suffer the pain of relapses of the Dragon's Resentment Poison."
Zhou Yuan smiled. “I will accompany you until the end.”
When tomorrow came, he planned to take advantage of every waking moment to practice the Mythical Saint Body to increase his strength as quickly as possible. But tonight, he would allow himself to let go for a while.
Crystalline ruby red wine spilled from the jug, filling a bowl to the brim. On the side, Tuntun's eyes sparkled as he carefully pushed his bowl. Without Yaoyao's approval, he did not dare to touch the Taoyao Wine.
Yaoayo glanced at him, causing Tuntun to immediately reveal a fawning smile.
In the end, Yaoyao did not object and helped him fill his bowl.
In the cave, a young man, a young woman, and a beast clinked their bowls before draining everything in one gulp.
Yaoyao's red lips glowed as her eyes gently closed, enjoying the wonderful feeling. A long time later, he finally opened his eyes again while laughing. "It's a truly unique flavor."
The flavor seemed to flow into the deepest part of the heart, sour and bitter with a lingering aftertaste.
I knew that there would only be one batch of this flavor in this world, because it would not taste the same in the future.
Even if Zhou Yuan made another batch exactly as he had before, the taste would be slightly different. Because the spirit blood peach needed to be nourished by blood, and the blood of the future Zhou Yuan would be filled with even more power as he became stronger, causing the many variations in the final product.
As such, these three flasks of Taoyao wine would never appear again.
Of course, for Yaoyao, it was more about how there was once a guy who had foolishly used his own blood to nourish ingredients for half a year to prepare a batch of wine for her…
It was these same idiotic actions that had caused small ripples to appear in Yaoyao's normally calm, deep-pond heart.
As the bowls continued to tinkle, the fragrance of wine filled the cave.
Later, both Yaoyao and Zhou Yuan blushed slightly as faint traces of drunkenness appeared in their eyes. They had deliberately chosen not to expel the alcohol in their bodies using Genesis Qi or Spirit power.
Yaoyao grabbed the jar and tilted it repeatedly but nothing came out.
A jar of Taoyao wine had been finished unknowingly.
Yaoyao hugged the jar while pouting, a sight that was adorable to a fault. Usually, such an appearance would never appear.
"There is more?" Zhou Yuan chuckled.
Yaoyao shook her head before she suddenly put a vial into her space bag. "Little by little I will taste this bottle."
He pondered for a moment before grabbing the last vial. She turned around and stumbled towards the small stream in the cave where pink flower petals bloomed on the peach tree, a backdrop that made her look even more beautiful than usual.
Zhou Yuan scratched his head awkwardly and followed him, having no idea what he was doing.
Yaoyao arrived under the tree and spiritual power gushed out from between her eyebrows. A deep hole was dug for herself before she placed the last jar of Taoyao wine inside.
"What are you doing?" Zhou Yuan asked in a puzzled manner.
Yaoyao stared at the mound of dirt as a slightly dazed look appeared in her eyes. She stumbled when a hand hastily reached out from behind, grabbing her slim waist.
Yaoyao's eyes narrowed as she turned around and wrapped her arms around Zhou Yuan's waist. With a flushed face, he gently rubbed his face against Zhou Yuan's shoulders as a barely audible dreamy voice sounded, "Let's hide this jar here..."
“Its flavor is very unique, so unique that I will never forget it…”
“Zhou Yuan…if one day comes…”
“When I forget everything, even you and Tuntun… you will have to bring me back here…”
"To drink this Taoyao wine again."
