As the circulation of True Energy produced heat, both of them were completely drenched in sweat. Hence, Cynthia removed her clothes, wearing only a thin undergarment.
Although she was young, her figure was curvaceous. Her features were also fine and delicate.
At that moment, the door opened.
Thea walked in. Upon seeing James and Cynthia hugging each other, she froze.
James could sense another presence in the room. Upon noticing Thea by the door, he panicked, which caused his True Energy to disperse.
The sudden dispersion of True Energy interrupted the cultivation, and Cynthia and he immediately vomited a mouthful of blood.
“Wh-What are you!” Upon seeing how intimate the two were and the tight undergarments Cynthia was wearing, Thea was enraged.
However, her expression remained composed. Walking in, she glanced at the two.
But, seeing that they had vomited blood, she asked, “D-Did I interrupt you?”
Wiping the blood trace off his lips, James looked at the approaching Thea and asked, “Why are you here?”
“Can’t I be here?” Thea returned the question.
Cynthia stood up and glared at Thea, “Why didn’t you knock? Don’t you know abruptly interrupting a cultivation would cause one to experience Energy Deviation?”
James explained, “We’re just cultivating, that’s all.”
“I know…” Thea took a deep breath.
She forcibly suppressed the fury inside her heart and the churning blood inside her body. If she had not known that James was only cultivating, she would have gone berserk.
James stood up. However, his body was harmed by the abrupt stop of the movement of True Energy. The moment he stood up, he felt his head spinning. Then, he vomited another mouthful of blood.
Thea hurriedly walked over to him and supported him.
The anger inside her heart dissipated.
She apologized profusely, “I’m sorry, Darling… I should’ve knocked…”
James waved slightly. “Everything’s fine. My Blood Energy just underwent a retrograde motion. I’ll be fine after some rest,”
“I-I only came in to have a look… Continue with your cultivation… I’ll be taking my leave…”
Thea turned to leave.
Looking at James, Cynthia said, “What are you standing there for? Hurry up and give chase…”
Instead, James spoke in a soft voice, “Thea’s a mature woman. She won’t bear a grudge over something as trivial as this…”
“Sigh…” Cynthia sighed in frustration.
Just as she thought, James knew nothing about women.
Thea went downstairs.
“How did it go, Thea?” Quincy stood up.
Thea said smilingly, “James is still cultivating, I shouldn’t bother him too much. I have something else to do. I’ll be taking my leave.”
After saying that, she left.
Stepping outside of the house, her smile disappeared from her face, and her expression darkened.
She hated herself for being weak. If she was stronger, she could solve James’ problem for him. That way, he would not have to cultivate the 18-meridian diagram with some other woman to heal his injuries. If she was stronger, she could have protected James better.
The determination to become stronger only grew stronger in her heart. She clenched her fists.
I have to become stronger!
Then, she drove home.
After greeting her family, she went upstairs, locked the door of her room, and switched on the computer.
She continued deciphering the ancient script from a thousand years ago on the internet in an effort to understand the meaning of every move of the Demonic Sword.
