Ch 41.01

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

After a moment of dizziness caused by the Instant Travel Technique, the tip of my nose smelled the fragrance of the wild flowers on Chen Ji Mountain, the clamorous noises in my ears gradually disappeared, and everything was properly settled in due course.

Mo Qing took me down to the ground along with Shen Qian Jin. Mo Qing appeared to have already exhausted all of his strength, even when he used the Instant Travel Technique, he lost his accuracy. Even I did not know which mountain top we had landed upon on Chen Ji Mountain. It was pitch black and extremely quiet that only the sound of insects in the early summer could be heard.

As soon as we landed on the ground, Mo Qing immediately went down on one knee and braced himself forcefully to stop his body from collapsing. At the same time, I rolled directly to the ground and lied on my back, while by my side, Shen Qian Jin stood firmly after much difficulty.

For just a moment, the three of us were silent and did not say anything. As I looked at the tranquil night sky, my brain that had just been split open by the golden light and demonic aura finally quieted down.

Then I gradually remembered that moment where it was like I had thrown away my sanity, what was I thinking? I would let Mo Qing take me away, protect me, love me… I… Since when did I start to think about these super messy things called love and feelings.

I looked at the quiet Mo Qing and told myself that it was because the wind was too strong and the golden light was too blinding, therefore, I was tossed from side to side and became foolish.

“Where is this place?” It was as if Shen Qian Jin was finally able to react and calmly spoke.

Mo Qing did not respond, while I lifted my hand and waved it back and forth with much difficulty: “We are probably on Chen Ji Mountain…” I looked towards the starry sky to determine the direction, and then pointed behind my head, “I’m out of strength… But you can still fly, so just take us to South Mountain Lord’s mountain top and find Gu Han Guang to take a look at our wounds…”

When Shen Qian Jin heard these words, her expression suddenly became startled for just a moment: “Gu Han Guang…”

[Oh, right, the name must be very familiar, it is your former lover’s name. Unfortunately, you do not remember it at all.]

As I covered my wound, the corners of my lips curled up and I could not help it but feel a slight anticipation. That brat who always showed people a sour face would all of a sudden see Shen Qian Jin appear in front of him, how wonderful would his expression be…

Shen Qian Jin followed what I said, she used the Instant Travel Technique to take Mo Qing and I to Gu Han Guang’s small residence on the mountain. As soon as we landed here, the scent of medicinal herbs could be immediately detected.

Had not even made a sound yet and the lantern in Gu Han Guang’s room illuminated. The door to the room was angrily opened and the small child-like body of Gu Han Guang with ferret fur draped over his shoulders appeared, his face was gloomy: “It’s only been a few days and this is already the second time. In the end, what are you all tormented…” His words ended halfway.

I sat cross-legged on the ground, watched Gu Han Guang stare dumbfoundedly at Shen Qian Jin, and proactively greeted him: “South Mountain Lord, hurry over and take a look at our wounds.” 

The three of us had either blood or dirt on our bodies. Except for Mo Qing, that black robe showed nothing out of the ordinary, while my clothes and Shen Qian Jin’s clothes looked terrifyingly dreadful. But if it was discussed truthfully, then it was very likely that Mo Qing…

Just thinking of it, I somewhat did not want to watch the play anymore.

I turned my head to quickly look at Mo Qing. I saw his constant, slight frowning appearance and he was focusedly meditating with his hand lightly stroking the center of his heart as if he was voluntarily regulating his breath.

As Gu Ham Quang stared intently at Shen Qian Jin, Shen Qian Jin was also somewhat curiously scrutinizing him. After all in Jiang Hu, the South Mountain Lord of Wan Lu Sect had never made an appearance before. She could not remember his previous appearance nor did she know his current appearance. To her, Gu Han Guang was just a stranger.

“Guan Yu Tower’s Shen Qian Jin, courteous greetings.”

As soon as she spoke, Gu Han Guang appeared to be taken aback and immediately returned to himself. As his super small body slightly retreated back a step, he bowed his head. His expression was unreadable, as he made an “mhm” sound. I did not have the time to take his moods into consideration and hastily called out: “South Mountain Lord.” I glanced toward Mo Qing, Gu Han Guang received my meaningful glance and immediately turned to look in Mo Qing’s direction.

I just saw him frowning fiercely and went straight to Mo Qing’s side. He scrutinized him and became livid: “You cause even more trouble than Lu Zhao Yao!”

I was on the sidelines and silently got shot by an arrow, but I did not say anything.

Mo Qing appeared to be putting in a great amount of effort to suppress the pain, but the voice that came out of his mouth was still hoarse: “Bandage her first.”

“Mine is not that serious.” As soon as I finished speaking, Gu Han Guang immediately took two paper dolls out from his chest. When the paper dolls reached the ground, it instantly turned into two young girls, one left and one right. They separated and supported Shen Qian Jin and I into the room, while Gu Han Guang dragged Mo Qing and teleported to an undisclosed place.

I followed the paper doll into the room and allowed the paper doll to take off the clothes on my shoulders. Then I lied on the bed and my soul flew out. I freed myself from Zhi Yan’s heavy body, circled around the room, and then went straight into the ground to search.

If I remembered correctly, Gu Han Guang had even built a very small alchemy room below this residence that was super quiet.

I plunged straight down and indeed found Gu Han Guang and Mo Qing in that very small alchemy room.


Mo Qing sat cross-legged, while Gu Han Guang took off the clothes on his upper body. Gu Han Guang’s eyebrows furrowed tightly with a serious look that was extremely not suited for his youthful appearance and asked in a heavy voice: “Li Chen Lan, do you dislike that your life is too long?”


I hurriedly glided to Mo Qing’s back and saw a badly mangled and mutilated flesh. Even though I had seen many bloody massacres, I could not help it but be startled inside and clenched my jaw tight in this moment.
