Chapter 709: Fifth Layer of Seal (3)
Without a break, Shen Yanxiao assigned tasks for everyone.
Then, she ran back to her room and sat down on her bed quietly, waiting for Xiu to undo the fifth layer of seal for her.
While she was waiting, a subtle shadow emerged right in front of her.
Xiu, with his ankle-length dark hair and bare feet, was standing before her without her knowing.
Different from before, Xiu appeared to be very corporeal.
The glow from the light crystals in the room cast over his skin, instead of penetrating through his skin.
Shen Yanxiao blinked.
She looked at the shadow behind Xiu.
Hesitating, she stood up and slowly reached her hand towards Xiu.
Her delicate finger touched Xius chest, and the trace of warmth coming from the tip of her finger made her heart pump.
She looked up in surprise and stared at Xiu who was standing here unmistakably.
“Was that you… I felt” Shen Yanxiaos voice was full of astonishment.
The warmth that came through from the tip of her finger was too realistic to be fake.
She could not imagine that Xiu, who had always been showing up in front of her as a shadow, was standing right here in front of her with a tangible body.
He was no longer a fleeting illusion, a shadow that was unreal.
She had touched him.
She had felt his warmth.
There was a trace of gentleness that was almost imperceptible appearing on Xius cold face.
He whispered a hum as an answer.
Shen Yanxiao hopped up like a startled bunny.
“What is happening here Arent you just a soul” Shen Yanxiao felt as if she was in a dream.
Xiu explained slowly, “I am a soul, but with the gradual recovery of my strength, I can form a body.
Previously, I could only sustain the illusion because I was too weak.
But even now, I cannot keep my corporeal body for too long, probably about 10 minutes.”
A body could be formed from a soul
Shen Yanxiao could not believe what she was hearing.
The only thing she was sure was that Xiu could not have been a human being!
No matter what the humans were capable of, they could not rely on their souls to create a body.
There were only two races in the world that could achieve this…
The God race and the Devil race.
Only the most powerful races in the world could maintain this immortal state.
The destruction of the physical body was not enough to kill anyone from either the God race and the Devil race.
Only by ruining their primordial spirit could their lives be taken for real.
“Xiu… are you a god or a devil” All of a sudden, Shen Yanxiao became curious about Xius identity.
Once, Vermilion Bird suspected that Xiu was a god.
However, only devils and demons could absorb dark elements.
Xiu titled his head.
There was no expression on his stunningly handsome face.
His dark hair cascaded down his left shoulder because of his head movement.
It was such a beautiful view that Shen Yanxiao could not look away.
“Is that important to you Whether I am a god or a devil,” Xiu asked.
Shen Yanxiao opened her mouth.
Before today, she never minded what Xius race was.
It was just that she wanted to find out right now.
“I am just trying to make sure if you are the last god in the world or the last devil.
It is understandable that I want to brush up on my history, right” Shen Yanxiao found herself an awkward excuse.
She just could not explain the sudden burst of curiosity.
Xius mouth moved, as if he was smiling.
“The Devil race is not wiped out.
They were just pushed back to the Devil Realm temporarily by the God race.
The last god of the god race used his own godhood to seal the passageway between the Devil Realm and the human world.
The devils are just gone from the human world for now.”
