Ch 58.02

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

Apparently, now that my soul had taken two Resurrection Pills, I could only use Zhi Yan’s body for two hours with some difficulties.

“Where is she?” Mo Qing repeated the question again with his ice-cold intonation.

“Right… Right here…” Zhi Yan pointed at me.

However, Mo Qing could not see me, but when he heard her answer and knew that I was still here, his expression was no longer as terrifying as it was before: “Why did this happen so suddenly?” I knew that Mo Qing was asking me this question.

Zhi Yan also immediately gazed at me intensely.

I looked at her: “Didn’t I tell you the reason before? You can explain it to him.”

“Oh…” It was like she had just remembered that I needed to rely on her to communicate with Mo Qing. She blinked her eyes and thought for a moment, “Great Demon King seemed to say that because she ate some things from the ghost market, so it led to her soul being weaker than before… Right?”

I nodded: “Probably from now on, I can only possess your body at the Hour of the Rat.”

*Hour of the Rat (子时 – zǐ shí) – between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m.

“From now on, she can only possess my body at the Hour of the Rat.” As she properly repeated my words, she was so intimidated that she did not dare to even say one more phrase in front of Mo Qing.

When Mo Qing heard this, he frowned: “What about her body? Where in the world is it?”

I answered: “Qin Qian Xian needs to be asked this.”

“Ask Qin Qian… Haa?” Zhi Yan raised her head to look at me, “My Big Uncle?”

“Yes, your Big Uncle.” I said, “During that year, he took my body out of the Sword Tomb. It’s unknown which frozen ice cave he hid it in, and he embedded my body into the ice wall.”

This answer surprised Zhi Yan, making her forget Mo Qing’s existence: “Why did my Big Uncle want to hide your body?”

I shot her a glance: “Obsession?”

Zhi Yan mumbled something to herself: “Could it be because of the inner demon during that time?” She turned her eyes and landed on Mo Qing, who was next to her, carrying inquisitive eyes. She properly knelt upright once again and said, “Although I had never seen it that year, but I vaguely knew that my Big Uncle had given birth to an inner demon somewhat due to Lu Zhao Yao of Wan Lu Sect. He usually repressed his emotions, so no one knew how his inner demon was handled. However, my father went to see him a few years ago and when he came back, he rather ruefully told me that my Big Uncle finally expelled the inner demon.”


I stroked my chin and asked her: “A few years ago is how many years?”

“About three or four years ago.”

So it happened after my “death.” In other words, before that time, Qin Yu knew that Qin Qian Xian’s inner demon had always been there.

“Could it be that Qin Qian Xian stole my body because he wanted to expel the inner demon?”


Zhi Yan told Mo Qing about my suspicion. Mo Qing was silent for a moment and then summoned the Dark Guard: “Where is the current whereabouts of Xu Zhi and Qin Qian Xian?”

“After East Mountain Lord took Qian Chen Pavilion Leader away from Xian Tai Mountain, this subordinate went ahead to the agreed upon location. However, I waited and never saw East Mountain Lord come by. I searched the surrounding area for a long time, and still there was no trace of the two people. Right now, I’m still looking for them.”

Mo Qing asked: “Where is the agreed upon location?”

“The location is the Celestial Demon Convergence, the celestial sects’ Jiang City is thirty miles away from Su Mountain.”

Su Mountain… This place was not far from Qian Chen Pavilion. It stood to reason that Qin Qian Xian should also be very familiar with it, so it was impossible to get lost.

“There are a lot of magical arrays outside Su Mountain…” Zhi Yan whispered, “That day, I saw that my Big Uncle seemed to be injured, and East Mountain Lord… Um, doesn’t seem to be bothered with trifling matters? Perhaps they carelessly enter into a magical array?”

If that was the case, then it was bothersome.

  1. Qin Zhi Yan will be probably have to mediate between the two for a while. I can’t say she will be too happy about that given her fear for Li Sect Leader.
    I can only imagine the thoughts in Mo Qing’s head.
    “What gave him the right to steal my Zhao Yao’s body? What do they mean he birthed an inner demon because of her? Why did she have to capture him, did she really think he was that beautiful? Will it be too obvious that I am jealous if I murder him when we find him?”

    1. Well, when I think about it, Zhao Yao and Mo Qing should be grateful to Qin Qian Xian for taking her body and putting it in an ice cave. Otherwise she would’ve just deteriorated and be dead for real, no opportunity for resurrection. Or is Sima Rong going to make a puppet body for Zhao Yao?!

  2. Thank you for another chapter. MoQing probably recalls how Zhao Yao brought Qin Qian Xian back to the sect to “look” at him during a time when MoQIng was covered in the ugly seal. So, while MoQing might be a bit miffed that he took her body but it prevented her from completely dying. Or at least, let’s hope he’s thinking from the more generous side of his personality.
