Ch 41.03

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

“Several celestial sects have advocated for the Ten Great Celestial Sects’ Sect Leaders to convene and discuss matters concerning what happened last night in Jin Zhou City. But the whereabouts of Jian Xin Sect’s Sect Leader, Liu Wei, is still unknown. Tower Leader, the day before yesterday, you were invited to go to Jin Zhou by Jian Xin Sect, and then the next day, after Jin Zhou was met with a disaster, you’re presently at Wan Lu Sect. I’m afraid that it will be difficult to explain to every celestial sect…”

Shen Qian Jin sat in the chair and sipped a mouthful of tea indifferently: “Nothing is difficult to explain. When will every sect’s sect leader convene? I actually have something that I want to inform each of the sect leaders.”

“Five days from now on Xian Tai Mountain.”

Shen Qian Jin nodded and turned around to look for Zhi Yan. The first phrase out of her mouth was to make Zhi Yan follow her to Xian Tai Mountain and report everything that Liu Wei had done for all the sect leaders to hear.

Zhi Yan became grave for a moment, and then turned her head to look at me, her eyes seemed to be seeking for an opinion.

I indifferently swept her a glance and replied:

“This is your body and also your business, if you want to go, then just go. It’s just that I want to remind you that the person Liu Wei wants to resurrect is not just some other person, but the Golden Immortal Luo Ming Xuan. Those old men of the celestial sects are not like the person in front of you, Shen Qian Jin, who is sensible and easy to talk to. If it’s not done well, then they’ll capture you and together you’ll go resurrect Luo Ming Xuan. Oh, however, if Qin Qian Xian is present, then he’ll probably protect you.”

For a moment, Zhi Yan became grave again and finally gritted her teeth to politely refuse: “Shen Tower Leader, I’m already someone who had entered the demonic path, so I should not go to the celestial sects’ meeting to avoid provoking gossip about you.”

I raised my eyebrow, it seems that Qin Qian Xian had chosen to trust Liu Wei instead of Zhi Yan. Therefore, it had caused a lot of trauma to Zhi Yan, so now, Zhi Yan was not willing to believe in him anymore.

Shen Qian Jin listened to her words and carefully thought about it. She understood Zhi Yan’s apprehensions and did not force the issue.


I saw that they had nothing else to talk about, so I had just planned on going down to the alchemy room to see Mo Qing. However, from outside the window, I saw a big black bird break through the window in Gu Han Guang’s room. The big bird rudely and arrogantly charged in. It spread its wings and landed on the table. 

Zhi Yan was immediately frightened by it. I saw the big bird circle around the room, its vermilion eyes landed intently on Zhi Yan who was sitting on the bed. With a strange “wa” cry, it flew towards her body.

Zhi Yan cried out in alarm, while at her side, Shen Qian Jin withdrew her sword and wanted to behead it. However, the big bird pecked at the letter tied to its foot, and then just like when it appeared, it struttingly flew out the window.


Zhi Yan stared blankly at the black bird prints on the bedding, and then picked up the envelope to open it. I glided behind Zhi Yan, looked over her shoulder, and read the cursive script letter with her and did not comment on the written grammar one bit —


Little Beauty, last night, I got to Jin Zhou City a little late, did you get hurt? Li Chen Lan did not protect you well, why not come find me?

Signed, Jiang Wu.

As I read, my lips twitched. So yesterday’s demonic energy from outside the city was actually this guy’s effort to make it lively.


Last time, Mo Qing did not beat him to death, so he got to rest for a while and now he wanted to stir up havoc in Jiang Hu again?

Truly immature.

Zhi Yan read the letter and frowned. Then she crumpled up the cursive script letter and threw it on the ground: “This lecher!”


Just as she finished cursing, she took the crumpled paper and threw it out the door, but a foot stepped on it instead. My gaze followed that foot upwards, and it turned out to be Mo Qing, whose complexion was still somewhat pale.


As he swept Zhi Yan a glance, Zhi Yan stiffened completely from head to foot on the spot.


Mo Qing expressionlessly moved his gaze away, picked up the crumpled paper on the ground, and opened it to take a look. As he furrowed his eyebrows, his eyes flickered coldly. Then that crumpled up paper ball was immediately burnt into a crisp.


As Mo Qing walked into the room, suddenly outside in the courtyard, a big bird’s strange “ah ah” cry could be heard. I looked out the window that was broken by the big bird, and immediately saw that the mighty and overbearing black bird from earlier was dragged back by some unknown force. In this moment, it was crushed resolutely into the ground. No matter how much it struggled, it could not fly away. It could only pitifully struggle up a body full of dust.


Was it… Because Mo Qing had discovered this bird, therefore he had only come over?


He stepped back, turned his head, and a Dark Guard immediately appeared behind him. He coldly gave an order: “Throw it into boiling water, pluck its feathers, and take it to Jiang City to sell.”


Jiang City was primarily the place where Jiang Wu chose as his base… This was Mo Qing demonstrating his powers to others…

“Shen Tower Leader.” As the Dark Guard outside carried the black bird far, far away, Mo Qing walked over to Shen Qian Jin and said, “Let’s take an opportunity to talk.”

Mhm, what? These wounds of his had not even healed yet and he had already begun to devise a new scheme? The last time, he cooperated with Qian Chen Pavilion to draw out Jiang Wu’s base in Jiang City. So this time, what was he planning to do by joining forces with Guan Yu Tower?

  1. I love seeing Zhao Yao keep switching between caring for Mo Qing, and wondering what he is plotting. She doesn’t trust her own feelings yet, so I am excited to see her continue to grow. Thank you for your wonderful translations~
