Although he was somewhat prepared, Ling Chen’s heart still trembled when he heard this system announcement.

However, Ling Chen did not immediately accept. He looked at Xi Ling as he gently placed his hand on her beautiful feathers, “Xi Ling, it was a great blessing for me to meet you. Back then, I only rescued you at the Lonely Spirit Ridge out of curiosity, and I never thought that you would repay me like this… you’ve even sacrificed your life twice to save me.

“Although you’re not the Golden Crow, I’m sure you possess the Golden Crow’s bloodline within you. That is the bloodline of a Saint Destroyer beast that represents sovereignty in this world. Back then, I was incredibly weak, and was an otherworlder at the lowest hierarchy in this world. In order to save me, you burned the flames of your lifeforce twice. Your actions caused me to feel moved for the first time in this world, and helped me realise that Saint Destroyer beasts aren’t all high and mighty; instead, their hearts are even purer and kinder than those of humans.”

Xi Ling gave a gentle caw, the meaning of which Ling Chen did not fully understand.

“Back then, you became my pet so that I could save your life. But now…” Ling Chen shook his head, “Xi Ling, you should know that once you become a player’s pet, although your Grade will not change, your power will drop to maintain the balance of pets. Moreover, you’ll completely lose your freedom, so…”

Before Ling Chen could finish speaking, Xi Ling’s body flashed with a resplendent and warm red light which covered her entire body. The light gradually contracted and became narrower and shorter. By the time it disappeared, there was a young girl in front of Ling Chen.

Xi Ling was gone and instead there was a cute and pearl-like young girl wearing red clothes.

“Xi… Ling… you can become human again?” Looking at the girl in front of him, Ling Chen cried out emotionally. This was the girl who he had met back in the Lonely Spirit Ridge… Xi Ling’s human form.

“Hehe!” The girl was much shorter than Ling Chen and had to look up to face him. She grinned as she met his gaze. Her large eyes looked clear like glass and she was small and cute. Her waist was quite thin and her beautiful, soft hair fell on her shoulders. Her flame-red dress was quite cute and looked like a princess-style dress, making her look like a doll, “Big brother – no – master, did you forget our promise? Wherever master goes, Xi Ling will go as well. Wherever master is, that will be where Xi Ling’s home is. This is the promise we made the first day we met; master already agreed to this.”

“But…”

“No ‘buts’,” Xi Ling cut Ling Chen off with her sweet voice. “I know that master’s saying this for my own good because he doesn’t want me to lose my strength and my freedom. Hehe, master’s always so good to me. However, even though I have so much power, because of the rules, I can’t fight with master or protect master. If that’s the case, what’s the point of this strength? Although I’ll lose some of my strength, if I become master’s pet I’ll at least be able to fight by master’s side and can face all those difficult enemies with master together. I am willing to even if I have to lose all of my current strength.

“Even though I’ll lose my ‘freedom’, I was happiest back when I was by master’s side. Even though I’ll lose my freedom, I’ll be able to stay by master’s side. Even if master wants to chase me away or abandon me, he won’t be able to do so.” Xi Ling’s eyes glittered like shining stars. There was a deep look of hope and expectation within those beautiful eyes, making Ling Chen feel as if his heart was going to melt. Xi Ling continued, “So master, please let Xi Ling continue to stay by your side just like before, alright?”

Looking at this girl who was as beautiful as a rose, Ling Chen felt as if none of this was real. He put his hands on Xi Ling’s small shoulders as he asked emotionally, “Xi Ling, am I really worth it for you to do all this?”

“Of course!” Xi Ling earnestly nodded and then smiled. “Master saved Xi Ling’s life, so Xi Ling’s life belongs to master anyways. If master doesn’t dislike Xi Ling, please don’t reject her.”

“Ding… the Mysterious God grade beast ‘Crimson Spirit’ has recognised you as its master and is willing to become your pet. Would you like to accept?”

Hearing this system announcement, Ling Chen did not hesitate anymore. He smiled as he nodded and accepted. A white light enveloped him and Xi Ling before it quickly disappeared.

“Ding… ‘Crimson Spirit’ has become your pet. ‘Crimson Spirit’ was once your pet and was named ‘Xi Ling’. Would you like to rename her?”

“No!” Ling Chen immediately declined.

“Ding… your pet ‘Crimson Spirit’ ranks as the number 1 pet on China’s Pet Rankings. Do you wish to hide your personal information?”

“No need.” Ling Chen was slightly surprised, but then he quickly realised something. Snow Cherry had originally been at the top of the Pet Rankings, but this position was now taken by Xi Ling. This meant that Xi Ling was still at least Mysterious God grade! At the Lava Purgatory, under the Vermillion Bird’s soul flames, she had not only been reborn, but had become even stronger.

“Ding… your pet ‘Xi Ling’ has returned to you and has become Mysterious God grade. All of her stats have been greatly increased and her Passive Skills have been upgraded. Her [Rootless Flames] have been levelled up to LV5, [Wild Flames] have been upgraded to [Heaven-Burning Flames], [Red Laser] has been upgraded into [Solar Laser], [Burning Fire Array] has been levelled up to LV5. She has unlocked the new skills [Pale Flames], [Phoenix Arrow], [Vermillion Judgment], [Dazzling Red Lotus] and [World Burning Heavenly Flames].”

Xi Ling had returned even stronger than she was before. As the system announcement sounded out, Xi Ling’s stats appeared in front of Ling Chen.

Crimson Spirit: Type: Beast Pet, Level: LV50, Grade: Mysterious God, Master: Ling Tian. A Fire Spirit Beast that possesses the Golden Crow’s bloodline. It has a beautiful appearance and extreme Fire abilities. It can also use the sun’s flames. It is currently not yet mature, and its power has not fully matured either. After exhausting its lifeforce, it was brought back to life by the Vermillion Bird’s soul flames and received part of the Vermillion Bird’s strength, awakening its dormant Phoenix bloodline.

“Wait! Phoenix?” Ling Chen was dumbfounded.

The words ‘Golden Crow’ had appeared within Xi Ling’s description, which meant that the system recognised that she possessed the Golden Crow’s bloodline. However, that bloodline was not pure – the description had also mentioned the ‘Phoenix’.

Back then, Qi Yue had told him that Phoenixes were ancient godly beasts and that the strongest being within the Phoenix Clan had been at the Saint Destroyer grade. Back then, the Phoenix Clan and Dragon Clan were the overlords, but after a catastrophe, the Phoenix Clan became extinct and no one had seen a Phoenix ever again. By now, ‘Phoenixes’ had become a myth. Qi Yue possessed 10,000 years of knowledge, which meant that even 10,000 years ago, the Phoenix Clan had already been extinct… so why was the Phoenix bloodline mentioned in Xi Ling’s description?

Could it be that she not only possessed the Golden Crow’s bloodline but also the Phoenix Clan’s bloodline? Could she be the offspring of the Golden Crow and a Phoenix?

Ling Chen continued to read:

Takes 5 seconds to set up the formation array and burns for 3 seconds. Consumes 13,000 MP. Cooldown time: 2 hours.

[Nine Suns Rebirth]: Fixed Skill, cannot be levelled up. After dying, it uses the power of the Nine Suns to revive. After reviving, there will not be any loss, but will not be able to fight within 1 hour. The power of the Nine Suns is limitless and the Nine Suns Rebirth can be used an unlimited number of times.

[Pale Flames]: Special Skill, cannot be levelled up. A unique flame that belongs solely to Xi Ling created by combining the Golden Crow, Phoenix, and Vermillion Bird’s flames. After fusing these flames from different origins, a terrifying white flame is created. Once activated, all of the flames Xi Ling releases will become white. The white flames ignore all resistances to Fire and deal triple the amount of Fire damage. They also destroy everything they come into contact with. After activating, consumes 3,000 MP per second and can be maintained for 30 seconds at most. Can be used once every day. Because Xi Ling’s strength is insufficient, the power of her flames will fall asleep for 3 hours after use.

[Dazzling Red Lotus]: Forbidden Skill, cannot be levelled up. The most destructive ability from the Vermillion Bird Clan. Cannot be used yet because the Vermillion Bird’s flames have not yet fully fused with Xi Ling’s soul.

[World Burning Heavenly Flames]: Forbidden Skill, cannot be levelled up. The most destructive ability from the Phoenix bloodline. Cannot be used yet because Xi Ling’s Phoenix bloodline has not fully awakened.

[Heavenly Wrath of the Nine Suns]: A destructive Forbidden Skill from the Golden Crow’s bloodline, cannot be upgraded. It releases its own source of power and condenses flames similar to the nine suns into an ultimate flame that can burn anything. When it reaches the peak of its strength, the Flames of the Sun can be directly used. The fire doesn’t distinguish friend from foe, and the damage is equivalent to (Magic Attack Power x 9 x Crimson Spirit’s current level). The maximum range can be controlled within a range equivalent to Xi Ling’s Magic Attack Power. Consumes all current MP. Cooldown time: 1 month. Because Xi Ling’s strength is vastly insufficient, it is best not to use it. If forcefully used, Xi Ling will fall unconscious for 3 days, her maximum HP will permanently decrease by 20%, and her level will fall by 10.
