“Thank you, mister,” Evangeline replied as she knelt before him.
“In the meantime, you will have to assume the identity of my friend so that no one else will know about this. The Gunderson family’s reputation will be ruined if word gets out about Evangeline being possessed by another soul! After all, such incidents are especially frowned upon by spiritual energy cultivators!”
Evangeline nodded, “All right, I understand. Come on, let’s get out of here!”
“Not so fast. I came here to look for the Century Eye Herb, so I need to find it before I leave,” Jagoan said.
“The Century Eye Herb?” Evangeline frowned slightly as she tried to recall what it was.
After giving it some thought, she asked, “Is it the one that only has three leaves? The leaves have a pattern that looks like eyes, right?”
“Yes, that’s the one! Do you know where I can find it?” Jagoan asked excitedly.
“I’m sorry. That stuff has been growing on my coffin, so I absorbed it all…” Evangeline replied with an awkward expression.
By absorbing the energy from the Century Eye Herb, the holy maiden’s soul was able to sustain itself till this day.
Jagoan was a little disappointed when he heard that, but he knew there wasn’t much he could do in this situation. As such, he had no choice but to head back up the volcano with Evangeline.
As Evangeline had swallowed the Fire Immunity Pearl, Jagoan no longer felt the intense heat from the molten lava when he was near her.
While they were taking their time swimming back up, Jagoan was on the verge of breaking down from anxiety.
Both Jagoan and Evangeline have been down there for such a long time now! It’s obvious that something bad must’ve happened to them!
“Oh, Jagoan… Who would’ve thought this is how you’d go out… Well, at least you died with a beautiful woman by your side, so you won’t be too lonely in the afterlife!” Jagoan did not expect Jagoan to end up dying here.
He turned around and was about to leave when Jagoan’s voice rang out from behind him.
“Hey, Mr. Jagoan! You can’t just leave on your own after bringing me all the way here! That’s not very nice!”
Jagoan spun around in shock when he heard that, only to let out a snicker when he saw how funny Jagoan looked in his underwear. “Jagoan! You’re alive! I thought you were dead!”
Jagoan threw himself at Jagoan and hugged him tightly.
Jagoan’s face turned red as he coughed loudly. “M-Mr. Jagoan, you’ll crush me to death if you don’t let go…”
With an apologetic look on his face, Jagoan quickly let go of him and asked, “Well? Did you manage to get the Century Eye Herb?”
Jagoan nodded. “Yes, I did. And Evangeline has returned to normal as well.”
He was lying in Jagoan’s face like it was the most natural thing in the world.
Jagoan glanced at Evangeline and was surprised to see that her eyes no longer looked lifeless.
“Wow, she really has returned to normal! Not only did she regain her spiritual energy, but she also looks a lot prettier than before! You sure are a lucky guy when it comes to women, Jagoan!”
Jagoan shot him a glare in response. “Ahem…. What are you saying, Mr. Jagoan?”
Jagoan let out a mischievous chuckle before holding his hand out toward Evangeline. “Hey, there! Since you’re back to normal, let’s get reacquainted! You can call me Mr. Jagoan!”
Evangeline flashed him a smile as she shook his hand. “My name is Evangeline. It’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance, Mr. Jagoan.”
The look on Jagoan’s face changed abruptly.
The next thing they knew, a few of his charms flew into the air and surrounded Evangeline.
