“You’re loyal to Zhao Yao, so after you serve your three year sentence, there will still be room to use you in the future.” Mo Qing took my hand, “I punished them because they committed the crime of defamation. Cut their tongues out as a warning to the others.” 

“What were they discussing?” Mo Qing did not speak, so I asked again, “Was the discussion about me?” 

Lin Zi Yu kowtowed and admitted his fault: “They were discussing a few of the Former Sect Leader’s past in Jiang Hu. It was this subordinate’s fault that they weren’t governed strictly. Sect Leader, please punish this subordinate instead.” 

Oh… I could probably guess what the rumors pertaining to me were about in Jiang Hu. There were bound to be a few appalling stories about relationships between a man and a woman. Even between Gu Han Guang and I, through the storytelling of some people in Jiang Hu, an entire collection of tales were already formed. Not to mention that this time, they saw Jiang Wu and Mo Qing’s attitude towards me, it was enough to let their imagination fly far away. 

It was inevitable that Mo Qing was angry, but the method of punishment this time around was a bit beyond my imagination. 

These wooden stakes nailed in front of the Memorial Arch… Although I was not present at that time, he had already gotten rid of the Hanging Corpse Pillar. Was it not to prevent such punishments from happening ever again? This time, why did it look so ruthless? 

I did not intercede on behalf of those Shadow Night Guards. I already said it this morning, the person they betrayed was Mo Qing. How he wanted to punish them was his business. I just flipped my hand over to hold Mo Qing’s hand, then I asked him: “Mo Qing, why did you do this in front of the Memorial Arch?” 

Mo Qing was stunned, and confusion marred his expression for a moment. 

“You went overboard.” Finally, behind me, Gu Han Guang said, “Li Chen Lan, in the past five years, you’ve never done anything like this. If you’re angry because of their wagging tongues, then kill them, it’s not a big deal. A method like this is not your style at all.” 

As soon as the light in Mo Qing’s eyes flashed, he turned his head away and immediately closed his eyes. His mind seemed to be in some sort of disorder. 

“In the past few days, I’ve been residing in the Southern Mountain and I’ve heard a lot of rumors going around privately. Recently, you’ve been much more violent. Come with me, I’ll tell you why your strange wound miraculously healed.” 

I dragged Mo Qing along and left with Gu Han Guang. Before leaving, I turned my head and signaled Lin Zi Yu with my eyes. Lin Zi Yu kowtowed his head in thanks. 

In fact, there was no need to thank me, I was not helping him, I was just helping Mo Qing, who was gradually becoming weirder. In the past few days, in places that I could not see, Mo Qing had slowly become stranger and more bloodthirsty. 

Following Gu Han Guang back to the top of Southern Mountain, he took out a mirror and placed a bowl of water in front of it. He had Mo Qing sit down in front of the mirror and asked: “In the mirror, what does this bowl contain?” 

Mo Qing frowned: “Blood.” 

I looked into the mirror, too. I saw that the clear water was still clear, there was no red to be seen. However, why did Mo Qing see… I looked at Gu Han Guang: “Is this Jian Xin Sect’s mirror?” Gu Han Guang nodded: “I borrowed it through Shen Qian Jin.” 

I did not ask further. Right now was not the time to inquire about his relationship with Shen Qian Jin. 

The reason why Jian Xin Sect was called Jian Xin Sect was because on the hilt of each disciple’s sword always hung a mirror. Their founding ancestor had a bronze mirror that could reflect a person’s heart. If the heart was crystal clear, then the person looking at the object in the mirror would stay the same. However, if the heart gave birth to a demon, then the person looking at the object in the mirror would turn evil. 

When I looked in the mirror, I saw water, but what Mo Qing saw was blood, which meant that his heart had already given birth to a demon. 

However, just like before, Mo Qing did not show any signs of walking through fire and entering the dark side. He was just a little more violent and vicious than before. 

And his methods… Had gradually become somewhat similar to Jiang Wu’s. 

They both created an atmosphere that instilled fear in people’s hearts. In fact, demon cultivators often encountered many scenarios of slaughtering. However, by using such methods that made people unable to live or die, it was to deliberately create panic and fear in people’s hearts. 

My heart tightened, with Jiang Wu’s dissipation and the last words he left behind, had become the curse that binded Mo Qing and I. 

“Li Chen Lan, you’re not human, right?” Finally, Gu Han Guang had said what I had suspected, “You’re not the son of the Demon King. You’re… More like a part that the Demon King abandoned.” 

He… was the Demon King’s inner demon, the inner demon that the Demon King abandoned. 

Actually, I did not need Gu Han Guang to point it out, I could make the guess myself. If Mo Qing could make the Wan Jun Sword recognize him as its master, then in his bloodline, there must be a correlation with the Demon King who lived a thousand years ago. 

The seal in the huge cave, the Demon King did not appear to be sealing his son, but he was sealing the monster in his heart. The cliff walls that were filled with talismans and the sacrificial ceremonies that my clan performed on the cliff every year… 

The existence of my clan was not at all like what Luo Ming Xuan said, to protect the Demon King’s son. Instead, the Demon King clearly gave my ancestors a mission, to guard his seal.

In fact, when I thought about it carefully, I could figure it out. It was just that when I looked at Mo Qing, through so many difficulties, I was finally able to hold his hand and constantly lie within his warm embrace, never parting. Therefore, I was unwilling to face this type of storm again. 

I just wanted to hold his hand, and without much turbulence, spend the rest of my life with him in tranquility. 

So, what the hell was this thing about being an immortal’s widow, could this life even be called protected by the heavens? If so, I really wanted to rock the heavens. 

Was it even possible to let people properly fall in love?

  1. Wow. Isn’t ironic that after Zhao Yao finds someone she loves wholeheartedly, she discovers that he is actually a heart demon?! She was finally able to join hands with him- only for another storm to be looming.

    Thank you for your continued hard work. I really appreciate it.
