Ch 34.04

~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~

I sat up, “I just came back from basking in the sun.” Then I asked her, “Did you go and look for Li Chen Lan to get the Nine Reversal Original Pill yet?”

“I did, but he said he was busy… Told me to come back in the evening…”

Ugh, I sneered in dislike and took a quick glance outside. I saw the sun was setting in the west, so I took possession of Zhi Yan’s body and went to Mo Qing’s sleeping hall but he was not there. I was planning to leave when a Dark Guard suddenly appeared in front of me, he respectfully greeted me and treated me in the same polite manners as when I was still the Sect Leader: “Miss, the Great Master is currently busy in Wu E Palace, please wait for a moment.”

“Oh.” I replied, “Then I’m going to go take a little peek.” Hearing me say that, the Dark Guard not only did not stop me but on the contrary answered: “This subordinate will lead the way for Miss.”

This Dark Guard did not have the slightest hesitation in satisfying my request, it sounded like… As if Mo Qing had already gave them instructions beforehand.

The Dark Guard led me to the side hall, just like the last time when I eavesdropped on Mo Qing and North Mountain Lord’s conversation. I quietly hid behind the door, but saw Mo Qing standing high above, while several people were kneeling below. They bowed their heads like they had committed a crime and were brought back to be tried.

He wore a black robe and calmly stood above the palace platform. I looked at his figure from a distance, and in a moment of absent-mindedness, I recalled many years ago, many times when I returned back to the mountain, I stopped the blasting snow, raging inferno spell array and went up to the mountain gate. At that time, the overgrown path was really quite long, but with a glance, I could see Mo Qing’s black clothes standing under the memorial arch of the mountain gate, calmly waiting for me to return.

Every time, it was just like that. In fact, at that time, there was absolutely no stirring emotions, seeing him was like seeing the memorial arch of the mountain gate, it was a sight that I was accustomed to seeing.

Every time I walked closer, he would retreat to the wayside and bow his head to greet me. Just like when I return to the mountain through the mountain gate, there would always be a long procession behind me; arranged lavishly extravagant. I would lift my chin high with my gaze fixed ahead and walk past in front of him.

In the past, he always wore a baggy black cloak that covered him from head to toe. It made it hard for people to see his face clearly.

Obviously, it was a very insignificant memory. Even when I was alive, I simply did not have the heart to remember this scene. But now that I remembered it, this scene was so distinctly clear. He always guarded there; no matter when I return to the mountain, he would always wait there and was the first person to see me.

When I shook myself back to reality, Mo Qing had already finished in dealing with those people. The people in Wu E Palace had all retreated away, he walked straight to the side hall, and looked at me: “Came to get the Nine Reversal Pill?”

“Yes, I came to get the Nine Reversal Pill, but Master, I first want to go to Feng Zhou City to see West Mountain Lord for a little bit. Last time, he asked me to do something, I have to go give him a message.”

“Mhm.” 

He responded to me once and did not say anything more. He came forward to hold my hand and took me to instant traveled to Feng Zhou City. Together we walked towards Sima Rong’s small residence. I quickly looked at him and a thought crossed my mind.

“So, Master, today, I was at the foot of the mountain and heard some information about Jian Xin Sect. I heard that their official residence is being haunted.”

Mo Qing replied: “Today, the Dark Guard came to report about this matter, too. The mind of Jian Xin Sect Leader, Liu Wei, is hazy lately and there have been many strange things going on inside the residence. However, no one knows who’s doing it.”

I carefully looked at his expression: “I’m afraid that it’s my father… So I want to make a trip to Jin Zhou City, can you come with me…” I rubbed my hands together, bit my lower lip, gazed at him hopefully, blinked my eyes at him for a moment, and displayed a look that I thought was the most adorable to silently convey to him my intentions.

Mo Qing’s eyebrows arched slightly and his eyes held a tiny smiling expression: “You want me to go with you?”

My heart jumped; it was really strange. Obviously that was my intention, but when he saw through my thoughts and spoke with a smiling expression like that, I really was somewhat embarrassed.

I coughed once and hastily suppressed this bizarre feeling: “Jin Zhou City is located in the depths of the celestial sects; not to mention what that Liu Wei did to my father; even though I am now your disciple… My cultivation is still not up to par. If there’s no one to protect me, I’ll be discovered by those Jian Xin Sect people… Then it will be very bad.”

“If that’s the case, then let’s order the Dark Guards to continue inquiring about the news.”

“But what if it’s really my father… In this type of matter, it’s still better for me to go there personally.”

“So, you still want to go?”

I nodded my head forcefully. I wanted to go, of course, I wanted to go. Among those celestial sect people, it did not matter who it was that wanted to repeatedly find ways to resurrect a person; if the person being resurrected is someone else, then I would not care. However, if that person wanted to make my enemy come back to life.

Then I would make that person take a trip to hell first.

Mo Qing was silently grave for a moment: “Tomorrow, I will make arrangements for the sect matters. Then the day after tomorrow, I will go with you.” It seems that whenever Mo Qing agreed to my requests, he always agreed so easily. It was to the point that it made me feel that it was absolutely not a big deal for him to place aside his Sect Leader’s duties and accompany me on a trip. 

But I used to be a Sect Leader; I knew that this was one very big deal.

Currently, Mo Qing was very captivated by the charms of a woman.

Upon entering West Mountain Lord’s small residence, the interior was already tidied up neatly. In the same moment, West Mountain Lord was sitting in his wheelchair and holding a tool to repair the damaged wooden person. Seeing that Mo Qing and I had come, he reluctantly smiled and said: “They haven’t been fully repaired yet and it’s inconvenient because of my legs, so I cannot serve you guys tea.”

“That’s not a problem.” Mo Qing replied. Standing beside Mo Qing, I said: “I came here to simply brief you on something. Last time, you entrusted me with a matter, I’ve completed it, and just like what I said before, from now on, your heart doesn’t need to be burdened anymore.”

West Mountain Lord was dumbfounded, immediately smiled, and nodded: “I know.” He looked at Mo Qing, sighed for a bit, and said, “From start to finish, the previous Sect Leader’s heart is big. No matter what it is, her heart is always big.”

Yi, when he said it like that, why did I feel like there was another meaning somewhat hidden inside.

I turned my head to look at Mo Qing, but saw the look on Mo Qing’s face was also a somewhat helpless smiling expression similar to West Mountain Lord’s.

While I was still pondering, Sima Dung suddenly asked me: “Little martial niece, are you satisfied with the sword sheath for the Liu He Tian Yi Sword?”

Little… Little martial niece?

I became senseless for an instant, but then immediately understood. Oh! That was right! Mo Qing and Sima Rong were once disciples under the same master, Sima Rong was Mo Qing’s junior brother. Now that Mo Qing was my master, would that not make Sima Rong my martial uncle now?!

I…

In a blink of an eye, I felt a type of loss; from being someone’s grandfather to being someone’s grandson.

But I could not display my sense of loss; I could only clench my teeth and endure: “The sheath… Is very nice.”

Sima Rong lowered his head, and as he mended the gears on the wooden person, he secretly laughed: “At my place, I don’t have anything to entertain you guys with, so standing here is really boring. You guys should take a stroll in Feng Zhou City by yourselves.”

I also did not want to stay here anymore!

  1. Thank you so much. I love the way this is developing. I wonder what’s going to happen with the haunting, how it’s going to play a part. I wonder why they changed it in the drama. Is there currently a ban with ghosts and things, I noticed similar changes in the untamed ?

    1. I think it’s changed in the drama because how would Zhao Yao (Bai Lu) get her screen time? Another thing is… Does Zhi Yan have to kiss Mo Qing when Zhao Yao take possession of her body? I dont know about you, but I would throw a fit!! The only kissing I want to see is between Zhao Yao and Mo Qing!

      Anyway, I still like the concept in the drama, too.

      1. I’d actually never thought about it that way, It would be weird thinking Zhi Yan was kissing Mo Qing but then that’s what everyone else saw. Now I’m even more curious as to how things play out. I love the drama but I know that their decision to change certain elements means that other things have changed. Like her getting her appearance back, how would that work here ? Always so excited to find out what happens next. Now I want to watch the drama again.
