As An Immortal, I Only Learn Forbidden Skills - Chapter 762
762 Sudden Situation
Liang Sisi had already disguised herself. She looked at Sikong Wuyuan, who was also disguised.
Sikong Wuyuan did not notice that there was a small mask hanging around his neck.
Liang Sisi helped him pull the mask off and showed it to him. “Didn’t you see what’s hanging around your neck? This mask looks quite interesting.”
There was a small divine beast inside the mask. The divine beast had a strange appearance and a fierce expression.
Sikong Wuyuan saw the eyes of the divine beast.
There seemed to be a vortex in its eyes. It sucked Sikong Wuyuan in.
Liang Sisi had turned around for less than a second when Sikong Wuyuan disappeared.
This made her panic. She started to stutter as she looked in the direction where Sikong Wuyuan had disappeared. “Sikong Wuyuan, Sikong Wuyuan? Where did you go?”
However, Sikong Wuyuan did not reply to her at all.
Liang Sisi looked at the small mask in her hand and could not help but feel nervous.
She had a vague feeling that the little mask had taken Sikong Wuyuan away.
Liang Sisi put the mask in her pocket and rushed to the inn.
Madam Zhenguo was having a good chat with Jiang Ming. When she saw Liang Sisi rush in, she immediately thought that she was very familiar.
Jiang Ming felt that something big had happened and asked Liang Sisi with concern, “What’s wrong? What happened?”
Liang Sisi gulped and glanced at Madam Zhenguo. She said vaguely, “Lord Ning Caichen, I have to tell you this in private.”
Knowing what Liang Sisi meant, Jiang Ming looked at Madam Zhenguo. “Excuse me.”
He brought Liang Sisi to the inner room, closed the door, and asked anxiously, “What happened?”
“Sikong Wuyuan has gone missing. He seems to be inside this little mask,” Liang Sisi said as she took out the small mask from her pocket.
However, her finger felt as if it had been bitten. She immediately took her hand away.
His finger was bleeding non-stop. The blood was black.
Jiang Ming felt that the black blood was very strange. He took out a silver needle and inserted it into the wound.
The needle sank into her flesh.
Large black worms suddenly came out of her finger. They squirmed, giving Liang Sisi a fright.
However, she dared not move recklessly and could only tremble in fear.
“These worms are so strange.”
Jiang Ming picked up another silver needle and stabbed the worms to death one by one.
However, the strange thing was that after the worms died, they did not become corpses. Instead, they turned into a layer of smoke and dissipated in front of Liang Sisi and Jiang Ming.
Liang Sisi asked, “What exactly is this?”
“I don’t know either. What’s in your pocket?”
Jiang Ming could not figure it out and wanted to look at Liang Sisi’s pocket.
Liang Sisi frowned. “I only have a small mask in my pocket. There’s nothing else. I don’t even know how I got bitten.”
“How about I take it out for you?”
Jiang Ming roughly understood what was going on.
The source of the black blood was probably the small mask that Liang Sisi had mentioned.
That small mask just looked like a mask. However, it was probably some kind of demonic item.
“Of course, thank you. However, be careful when searching around for the mask. My dress is rather thin.”
Jiang Ming understood what Liang Sisi meant. He put his hand in her pocket but kept a distance from the inner layer of her dress. He was extremely gentlemanly.
In order to prevent the same thing from happening to him, Jiang Ming protected his hand with a spell.
When he reached for the pocket, Jiang Ming and Liang Sisi heard a scream.
Jiang Ming and Liang Sisi looked at each other. Then, Jiang Ming put his hand in recklessly and took out the small mask.
At this moment, the body of the divine beast with the small mask had already changed color. It was silver-green.
The silver-green mask was glowing. If one looked closely, they would think that something was wrong with the mask.
“Was the mask waiting for me?”
Jiang Ming was a little worried. He conjured some smoke in his hand and spread it on the small mask. However, not long after, the divine beast on the small mask had disappeared.
“What’s going on?”
Liang Sisi’s hand fell down and she let go of the mask.
The mask fell to the ground and immediately turned into a cloud of smoke, dissipating directly.
“Oh no, doesn’t that mean Lord Sikong won’t be able to return?”
Liang Sisi suddenly thought of something, and she felt terrible.
If this thing had disappeared, how could they save Sikong Wuyuan?
“Where did you get this mask?”
Jiang Ming looked at Liang Sisi.
Liang Sisi thought about it carefully, but she could not think of the answer. In the end, her head started to hurt badly.
Seeing that Liang Sisi was also in trouble, Jiang Ming quickly stopped her and signaled for her to stop thinking about it.
Liang Sisi stopped thinking, but the pain was not resolved at all. Not only that, but her entire body was affected.
Just like Feng Yunche’s illness, Liang Sisi’s entire body was covered in large pustules as well.
However, unlike Feng Yunche, the pustules were green.
Fortunately, Liang Sisi only had pustules on her body and nothing else.
However, this was enough to give Liang Sisi a huge blow.
Liang Sisi’s eyes became unfocused, and she could not muster up any energy at all. She muttered to herself, “How could this be?”
However, Madam Zhenguo was getting impatient. She walked into the room and asked curiously, “Lord Ning Caichen? Lord Ning Caichen?”
She called out twice in a row, which was enough for Jiang Ming to hear.
Jiang Ming did not have time to comfort Liang Sisi. He only said, “Wait here for a while. I’ll go and placate Madam Zhenguo.”
However, Madam Zhenguo had already smelled Liang Sisi’s illness and could not help but frown.
This was the same illness she had contracted when she came here after losing the war.
When she saw Jiang Ming, she asked subtly, “Is someone sick?”
Jiang Ming did not expect Madam Zhenguo to know and immediately asked, “How did you know?”
Madam Zhenguo was caught up in bad memories and continued, “Green pustules… unfocused eyes… no energy… an inability to respond… Those are the symptoms, aren’t they?”
These symptoms were exactly the same as Liang Sisi’s.
Jiang Ming realized that something was wrong. “Don’t tell me you had the same illness!”
