Ch 62.02

He carried Wan Jun Sword and left. Even though his injuries were still not completely healed, I was still reassured. No matter how powerful the magical arrays in Su Mountain were, with Mo Qing’s current level, even though he would not be able to freely move around, at least his life would not be in danger. The only difficult problem was finding which magical array both Shi Qi and Qin Qian Xian had charge into.

I waited quietly at Chen Ji Mountain for two days. During these two days, I only idled my time away teaching Zhi Yan external martial arts and going to the ghost market to visit Zi You. Every day, he would go to the Da Yin Netherworld Bank to watch his past because he was afraid that he would forget.

So then, I became curious about his older brother, Zi Yu. Logically speaking, if his older brother was dead and was at Chen Ji Mountain, then when he died, he would definitely drift to this ghost market. However, Zi You had no knowledge about it, so that proved that his brother was still alive. Therefore, he was living from my era of Dark Guards to Mo Qing’s era, so what was he doing now?

If he was so loyal to me like Zi You had said he was, then after I died, how did he get along with Mo Qing?

Or rather, he did not die nor did he stay in Wan Lu Sect, but was wandering around Jiang Hu by himself?

I used this free time and made Zhi Yan go investigate for any news about Zi Yu. However, any news about the Dark Guards, the Dark Guards themselves refused to talk about it and other disciples would not know much about it either. So this investigation had no results.

However, on the third day, Mo Qing still did not return and Chen Ji Mountain experienced a slight change.

A lot of Wu E Palace’s guards had changed.

Zhi Yan did not notice it because she was not familiar with Wan Lu Sect, but I sensed something strange. I felt that there was something wrong with Wan Lu Sect.

On the fourth day, Mo Qing still had not returned like before. The time frame was so long that Zhi Yan started to realize that there was something wrong: “Li Chen Lan has been out for so many days, even if he couldn’t find my Big Uncle, he should come back to see you, why isn’t there any news coming back?”

As I listened, my expression was solemn.

That same evening, I circled around Chen Ji Mountain. Each mountain and each peak did not appear to have any strange movements. However, when I was drifting across a corner in Wu E Palace, I caught sight of Mo Qing’s Chief of the Dark Guards. His face was covered with a thick, black cloth, hiding his true identity.

Yi, was he not dispatched by Mo Qing to look for Shi Qi and Qin Qian Xian? So he should currently be by Mo Qing’s side.

Just right at this moment, he was assigning tasks to  a Dark Guard in the corner: “On South Mountain Lord’s side, dispatch more people to keep watch, also in Sima Rong’s residence in Feng Zhou City, don’t let your guard down.”

I pricked up my ears, crossed my arms, and floated by his side, coldly staring at him.

After he finished assigning tasks to the other person, he glanced around, then walked into Wu E Palace. In the palace, on the west side, on the third brick, he stomped down three times. I raised my eyebrow, my expression became even colder.

Was he wanting to go to the dungeon underneath the main peak?

Under each named mountain peak in Chen Ji Mountain, there were dungeons, like the dungeon under Xi Yue Peak, where it used to imprison Liu Cang Ling, was only for regular “criminals,” but the dungeon under the main peak was used only to imprison some powerful people who I wanted to tame, because they were unwilling to surrender and pay allegiance to me. Later, these people either died or truly surrendered to me, but after I died, it seemed that Mo Qing did not have the urge to make people submit to him. He was benevolent in his teaching, therefore, this dungeon got deserted. The only one imprisoned inside…

Not long ago, when the person inside joined forces with Jiang Wu, coordinating internal and external offenses that nearly harmed everyone, it was my North Mountain Lord, Yuan Jie.


This Chief of the Dark Guards wanted to go down and look for Yuan Jie?

There was a magical array in the dungeon, so the Instantaneous Travel Technique could not be used, only by engaging this mechanism in Wu E Palace was when one could go down. However, this mechanism’s passage was only known to the Chief of the Dark Guards and the Sect Leader.

I crossed my arms and drifted down together with the Chief of the Dark Guards. As I drifted down, I scolded Mo Qing for not being capable of recruiting someone. Look at what kind of trusted confidant that he recruited and placed by his side!

I truly felt resentment towards someone who did not meet my expectations!

  1. Thanks so much for the update! This is the plot point I’ve been wondering about since the start. Whether or not the Lin Zi Yu character from the show was an addition to the adaptation, or whether she (he?) was originally in the novel. I’m really curious to see where this goes, and how it’ll differ from the show. Thanks so much for your hard work in translating this! Till next time!
