Chapter 1193 Only More, Not Less
The sky was getting darker, it was so dark that it looked like it could collapse at any moment.
Amidst the lightning and thunder, Song Yiyan stood alone. The ground around her was riddled with holes, ravines, and lightning. The ground was charred and thick smoke was rising.
Ji Xing watched as a black trail descended from the sky and flashed when it was right in front of her. She did not notice it at the moment and tried to resist, but it was already too late.
"Be careful!" Ji Xing shouted anxiously and ran towards her with bloodshot eyes.
The moment Song Yiyan turned around, she saw the man running towards her like an arrow.
Lightning flashed and thunder rumbled. She didn’t hear what he was shouting, but she could clearly see the wild worry in his eyes.
The man was extremely fast, comparable to the lightning that fell from the sky. In the blink of an eye, he had already rushed to her side and hugged her with great strength. His large hand held the back of her head, protecting her in his embrace.
He heard a loud explosion.
She could feel a warm and sticky liquid dripping down after the man’s painful groan. It mixed with the rainwater and flowed to her lips, the taste of rust spread to her mouth.
In just a breath’s time, they could hear the sound of thunder striking and lightning flashing
The man groaned in pain, but he was trying his best not to make a sound.
When she finally reacted, she wanted to raise her head and push him away with all her might. She was anxious, angry, and heartbroken as she roared, "Let go!"
"Don’t move." Ji Xing’s voice was low and deep, he sighed gently and hugged her tightly without letting go. "Let me do the rest!"
"Ji Xing!" Song Yiyan felt as though her heart was being held in his hands. The pain was suffocating and numbing. She could clearly feel the man’s body enduring the power of lightning that he shouldn’t have.
She wanted to push him away, but her body had already reached its limit. Her strength had long been drained, and the man’s arms were as sturdy as steel bars. No matter how hard she struggled, she could not break free.
She could only listen to the incessant explosions as she groaned in pain with tears streaming down her face.
When Si Chengluo rushed over, he saw a man and a woman hugging each other on the empty ground. The last bolt of lightning seemed to have struck down with flames.
Ji Xing’s body was bent in the perfect position to protect the person in his arms. Just as the lightning was about to hit him, he saw a red glow flash across his body. The bloody aura was like a tidal wave, instantly forcing the lightning back.
With a loud crash, the lightning struck the spot beside him, creating a two-meter deep ravine. It was hard to imagine the impact of such power on a person. After the last bolt of lightning, there was another series of rumbling sounds. The lightning and thunder became softer before gradually calming down.
In an instant, the pouring rain stopped. The dark clouds dispersed, revealing a clear blue sky. A rainbow appeared behind them.
"Ji Xing!" Song Yiyan growled in a hoarse voice. She held on to her last bit of consciousness and didn’t dare to faint. She wanted to push him away, but her hands were trembling badly and she didn’t dare to touch him.
Ji Xing sighed softly and hugged the woman in his arms tightly. He looked at Si Chengluo who was walking towards them and finally closed his eyes in relief, completely losing consciousness. The sun broke through the clouds, lighting up the world. Apart from the scorched earth, the ravines that crisscrossed this place proved that this place had just experienced a large-scale lightning tribulation. Everything was calm and fresh now.
In the hospital, Song Yiyan had already woken up and Ji Xing was still sleeping.
Song Yiyan looked at him for a long time before finally asking, "What exactly happened to him?"
Ji Xing had endured half of the lightning tribulation on her behalf, but there was nothing wrong with his body. Other than his hair being burnt, he was completely unharmed.
On their side, the only one who had complete memories was Si Chengluo.
"His body took the initiative to absorb the power of thunder. You should have let him go out and block everything for you." Si Chengluo looked at the man lying on the bed.
It turned out that even though he had lost his memories, his ability was still there! They had been worried for nothing.
Song Yiyan furrowed her brows and remained silent. Her hand was still held by the man and he refused to let go. She allowed him to hold her hand and looked at the unconscious man with a complicated expression.
She touched her heart and realized that her heart was beating very fast. The lightning tribulation just now seemed to have spooked her.
But why did she still not have any memories of him? She was very sure that Sheng Sheng was not lying to her, and that Ji Xing and her were really lovers.
A person’s heart would never lie. When the man rushed over and hugged her to protect her, she clearly felt a heart-wrenching pain.
Ling Sheng and Jun Shiyan had come over after receiving Si Chengluo’s message. Even though they were in the ward, Song Yiyan did not notice them.
Ling Sheng shushed Si Chengluo, not letting him speak. She looked at Song Yiyan, who was guarding Ji Xing’s bed, her eyes filled with guilt and heartache.
She knew that helping Second Uncle would definitely affect her, but she didn’t expect it to be so serious. It was so serious that she didn’t know how to repay her kindness.
Jun Shiyan held her hand and lowered his voice. He whispered into her ear, "I’ll pay back what we owe them." "Sheng Sheng." Song Yiyan finally noticed them. She turned and smiled at her. "Why are you here?"
Ling Sheng was actually a little crybaby. She rushed over and hugged her, her tears rolling down. "I’m sorry."
"I’m fine, no one can do anything to me." Song Yiyan patted her shoulder and said in a relaxed tone, "To be able to save Second Uncle, this little bit of suffering is nothing."
"If you and Ji Xing have any trouble in the future, look for me and my dad." Ling Sheng wiped her tears and looked at her seriously. "Even if you want my life, I won’t blink."
Song Yiyan pinched her cheek in disdain. "Why would I want your life? Can it be eaten or drunk?!
Si Chengluo didn’t say anything, he just looked deeply at Ji Xing who was lying on the bed and then glanced at Song Yiyan. Who exactly owed who between them? It was actually quite complicated, this debt was unclear.
Jun Shiyan had helped them as much as they had helped him.
