A genius, a monster, a waste.
The glory of her potential vanished in the instant she tried to cultivate. Her family watched, horrified, as their precious young one bled black blood while crying out in agony.
From then on, no matter what devastating pain Ying Yue endured to cultivate, one thing remained unchanged.
Her power had never risen.

"Such sweet words claim to move mountains and uproot kingdoms. Why offer it to me?"
His lips broke out into a smirk, almost smile. "You have something that is important to me. As long as you give it, I will accompany you and be at your disposal until you can cultivate."
Ying Yue frowned, "What do you want then?"
The expression on his face grew even more mischievous.

Without further deliberation, her lips devoured his.
