Ch 48.02

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

The thorny problem was that Xu Zhi had a very vague concept about “gender.” She was raised by me. I did not bother with trifling details, so she also did not bother with trifling details. After raising her to a certain age, I discovered that she did not have the awareness of “the differences between a male and a female.” By then, it was already too late to correct.

Anyways, since she was East Mountain Lord, no one even thought about taking advantage of her, so I just conveniently complied with her ways. 

Therefore, when she licked Qin Qian Xian’s neck just now, she, herself, did not feel that there was anything wrong.

It was because I had told her to protect Qin Qian Xian, so she wanted to protect him in every aspect; if she failed, then it would even become her fault. Qin Qian Xian got injured, so it was also her fault. However, he was already injured, so she could only help him by licking his injury.

Off to the side, Shen Qian Jin stroked her chin with a solemn expression and said, “I did not expect that in this life, there would be a day where I would witness Qin Qian Xian being teased by someone.”

Oh, yes, back in the day, I only captured this Bodhisattva to take a look. I looked at him all night, and under his dignified jewel-like face, I could not act wantonly and be carelessly frivolous. On the contrary, this lass immediately approached, using her mouth.

“Now is not the time to talk about this!” Zhi Yan was very anxious, “Must think of a way to save Brother Cang Ling…”


My face darkened: “Tell Xu Zhi to take Qin Qian Xian away…” Over here, I had just spoken, but over there,  the wooden-headed puppet, controlled by Sima Rong, immediately said: “Shi Qi, you take Qin Qian Xian away first, I’ll cut them off from behind.”


After saying that, beyond anyone’s expectation, Xu Zhi saucily hugged Qin Qian Xian’s waist, leapt high into the sky, trod on a sword, and flew away.


As soon as Qin Qian Xian left with Xu Zhi, this side naturally fell into a more dangerous crisis. The mirror swayed, but in the very last scene, a wooden-headed puppet was seen carrying Liu Cang Ling, getting ready to leave.

Immediately afterwards, the mirror seemed to have fallen on the ground and the chaotic image inside no longer existed. 

Shen Qian Jin’s confidant said anxiously: “The remaining sisters and the other people…”

Shen Qian Jin said: “It actually doesn’t matter. As soon as Qin Qian Xian left, on the basis of each one of their anger, they’ll fight for a while. But the person they were fighting over is no longer there, so these celestial sects won’t really be too harsh with the same celestial sects. The only culprits responsible for this anger was the people of Wan Lu Sect, but they sent a pile of wooden-headed…” Shen Qian Jin smiled, “Wan Lu Sect Leader is actually brilliant. Without sending an army or losing a person, he still manages to divide the Ten Great Celestial Sects.”

I shot a glance over at Shen Qian Jin. The Ten Great Celestial Sect being torn apart was not Mo Qing’s fault. 

As long as they have someone who wanted to use Qin Qian Xian’s blood to resurrect Luo Ming Xuan, the Ten Great Celestial Sects would still be divided because of differing opinions. What could tear them apart from the inside was only the human heart.

However, Mo Qing really did a great job… Even though in this dispute, he did not even appear at all, but he left his imprint everywhere…

The son of the Demon King, that year I really did save an awfully fearsome child.

In the evening, a wooden-headed puppet brought Liu Cang Ling back and went directly to Gu Han Guang’s place. Zhi Yan was the first to storm out, seeing Liu Cang Ling’s appearance, her tears uncontrollably fell pitter-patter onto the ground: “How can Liu Su Ruo do this.” She mutteringly whispered, “You’re her relative, how can she use you like this…”

Liu Cang Ling was carried to the bed. When Gu Han Guang was treating him, he turned his head towards Zhi Yan in annoyance: “Hindrance!”

Still, Zhi Yan did not get angry. She returned to her room, allowed me to possess her body, turned into a soul, and then, went back to take a look. I possessed her body and went into the courtyard, but I saw that the wooden-headed puppet that brought Liu Cang Ling back was already gone. As soon as I thought about it, I immediately winked to Wu E Palace.

I had not been here for some days, but the guards at Wu E Palace still bowed and welcomed me respectfully, without the slightest intention to obstruct my path. 

I entered directly into Mo Qing’s sleeping chamber, but saw the wooden-headed puppet from before stand in front of Mo Qing and it said to him: “It’s unknown where Shi Qi had taken Qin Qian Xian. Currently, I still haven’t found her yet, but today, having seen her appearance, she must have experienced a lot overseas, on the Immortal Island. Compared to before, she  is much stronger, so nothing unexpected should happen.”

“Mhm.” Mo Qing responded. His hand that was approving the document stopped for a moment, but said neither saltily nor blandly: “Abilities have grown, but still runs her mouth off, she lacks discipline.”

Oh, hey, listening to this opinion, was he trying to teach Little Shi Qi on my behalf? 

This would not do. I entered the room immediately.

Sima Rong’s wooden-headed puppet laughed softly for a moment and said: “After she brings Qin Qian Xian back this time, what are you going to arrange for her to do? Right now, the demon path is basically settled internally, there is no longer a lot of resistance as before. Also, the Ten Great Celestial Sects had already split up and lacked unity, therefore, they cannot accomplish anything in any situation. Only Jiang Wu of Xin Mountain is a bit difficult to deal with. I heard that he has recently contacted a lot of demon cultivators, many of whom were previously banished by Zhao Yao and has a deep resentment towards Wan Lu Sect… If these people gather together, then I’m afraid that it’ll be unseemly, so have Shi Qi go handle them?”


“Oh?” Sima Rong seemed quite fascinated and said, “So you will let Shi Qi stay in Wan Lu Sect… Waiting for her to kill you?”

“I will resolve Jiang Wu of Xin Mountain by myself, Shi Qi has more important things.” As Mo Qing spoke, he placed his brush down and raised his head to gaze at me. Among the flickering lights, his gaze actually resembled gently flowing water, “I want her to do her utmost to protect someone, so that’s plenty.”

My footstep paused, while my heart tightened and warmed for a moment. Just when I wanted to ask Mo Qing a question, without any difficulty, I had completely forgotten everything.

  1. For a moment, you could feel that Zhao Yao was congratulating herself for being discerning enough to save Mo Qing. She was proud of him and his craftiness. And his forethought about having Shi Qi protect her stopped her in her tracks and hit her right in the heart. I love it!

    Thanks for another chapter. I pray you are well and I’m good health.
