Qin Wanwan instantly reacted, her face turned red as she stammered and said: “I’m …… sorry.”
After saying that, she closed the window and began run towards the opposite side.
If Xie Lutang wasn’t in this side, then Nan Feng might have meant the opposite direction. Qin Wanwan rushed to the opposite hallway, this time she didn’t dare to directly open the windows. She first peeked through the window slit, and only when she saw Xie Lutang sitting behind the table and frowning did she resolutely opened the window and called in a low voice, “Xie-daojun!”
Xie Lutang turned back in surprise, once he saw Qin Wanwan and her appearance, his face instantly turned red. He hurriedly closed his eyes and turned his head away as he greeted, “Miss Qin.”
“Master!” Nan Feng ran out from the room and looked at Qin Wanwan with an excited face, “Master you’re finally here! But why are you dressed like this?”
When questioned by Nan Feng, Qin Wanwan remembered her unsightly appearance and hurriedly took out the clothes from her Qiankun bag and changed them behind the screen. Done changing, she came out from behind the screen and turned her head to speak with Xie Lutang: “Xie-daojun, how are you now? Don’t worry, I’ll rescue you from the city lord’s residence.”
“But ……how do we go out?”
Xie Lutang frowned and said, “Hua Rong is strong, we can’t fight with him. Why don’t you guys go out first? You can ask for help from the Tian Chen Sect, and wait for them to ……”
“Digging a tunnel.”
Qin Wanwan spoke decisively, “There is no barrier or spells set up under the ground. My Master can dig a tunnel very quickly.”
Xie Lutang froze, in that moment, he suddenly remembered the rumour he heard of the Wen Xin Sect being destroyed by someone two months ago.
He did not dare to ask more questions, but only discussed with Qin Wanwan: “Miss Qin came to Guicheng for the Linglong Jade, right? Now if you leave with me, how will you get it back?”
When Qin Wanwan heard his question, she frowned: “Let’s first escape and see what happens. This matter has nothing to do with Xie-daojun, I and my master can not implicate Xie-daojun.”
Hearing this, Xie Lutang shook his head: “Guniang is wrong. The matter of ascending the Immortal Gate through Linglong Jade concerns the entire Immortal Dao, the Tian Chen Sect has the most responsibility to stop this. Besides, I promised your Master to protect you well, which I have already broken last time. I am not injured that much and Hua Rong just likes to collect a bunch of good-looking men in his house, but never goes into anyone’s courtyard. If I want to win his favor, we still need to think of another way, I am safe for the time being, so Guniang can do what you have to do. You do not need to care about me.”
This is the first time Qin Wanwan heard such selfless words from a man. She suddenly remembered those novels she read in her previous life where the male protagonist was always loyal and selfless to the female protagonist and her gaze at Xie Lutang couldn’t help but soften.
“Xie-daojun, I can understand your thoughts, but this situation has nothing to do with you. It’s the job of mine and my Master. My Master is very strong, he likes to fight alone and does not want others to help.”
Jian Xingzhi at that time kicked open the window and tumbled in through it.
He was wearing women’s clothes, and his face was painted with makeup. But his figure was far sturdier than any women, so he looked extraordinarily bizarre.
Xie Lutang and Qin Wanwan turned around in surprise and was shocked to see his appearance. Jian Xingzhi wiped his face, and returned to his usual appearance. He rushed behind the screen to quickly change clothes, when his hands were busy changing clothes, his mouth was busy in scolding Qin Wanwan: “Who said I don’t need anyone’s help? Your Master only formed a Jindan now, I am very weak! I need a lot of help and protection! Gu Beicheng, let me make it clear,” Jian Xingzhi put on his clothes from behind the screen and rushed out as he exclaimed, “the next time you dare to sell me out like that, I’ll expel you from the sect!”
Oh, that’s great.
Qin Wanwan’s face was expressionless. Nan Feng, who stood on the table waved his hand: “That …… don’t argue Masters, we are escaping or not ah?”
“Of course escaping ah.”
Jian Xingzhi immediately spoke: “We came here after so much hardship and won’t escape?”
As soon as the words left his mouth, the sound of noise came from outside. Cuilu’s voice was heard as she commanded: “Search! Search them everywhere!”
When the people inside the room heard it, they panicked. Xie Lutang immediately suggested, “Hurry up and hide.”
Jian Xingzhi and Qin Wanwan immediately ran inside the room. The two of them crawled to the bottom of the bed but found the bottom of the bed too short for two people to hide. They immediately got up and ran to the closet but the closet was too small for both of them to accommodate.
The two wanted to drill under the table, but when the two rushed there, they found that the space under the table couldn’t accommodate two people either. Half of their body would be exposed outside the table cloth. Qin Wanwan gritted her teeth and urged Jian Xingzhi, “You go in!”
Jian Xingzhi said anxiously: “I’m so big, how can I hide in there?!”
Just as he finished speaking, there was a knock at the door. The two looked at each other and with a tacit agreement rushed to the bed. Jian Xingzhi pulled down the bed curtain, and the two squeezed together into the corner before covering themselves with a quilt.
The two hid their spiritual power, and wrapped themselves with their divine senses to prevent others from prying into it. Their hearts were pounding as they stared straight wide-eyed at the quilt.
Cuilu knocked on the door and spoke to Xie Lutang when the door was opened.
She spoke respectfully and seemed to hold Xie Lutang in high regard: “Xie-gongzi, a pervert has appeared at the female bath. This humble one was ordered to catch it, so I hope Xie-gongzi can co-operate.”
“I haven’t seen any perverts.”
Xie Lutang’s voice was calm, blocking the people outside the door. Cuilu smiled as she said, “Xie-gongzi, these two perverts seem to be your friends. They escaped from the prison and roamed into the women’s bathroom.”
“My friends, they don’t have any interest in roaming around the women’s bathroom.”
Qin Wanwan: “……”
Jian Xingzhi: “……”
Suddenly, they couldn’t help but feel guilty.
“Xie-gongzi, if you don’t let me search, then I can’t be polite.”
Cuilu spoke in a cold voice, but Xie Lutang still didn’t let them in.
Seeing him unmoving, Cuilu did not hesitate to strike, and Xie Lutang raised his hand to stop Cuilu.
Xie Lutang’s spiritual power was sealed, but Cuilu still didn’t dare to hurt him. The two of them actually played with their hands and feet a little bit at the doorway.
Qin Wanwan and Jian Xingzhi listened to the commotion from under the blanket and raised their eyes to look at each other. Jian Xingzhi asked with his eyes, “What do you plan to do now?”
Qin Wanwan hesitated for a moment, grabbed the hand of Jian Xingzhi, and wrote four words quickly in his palm “what was your mission?”.
The two of them were wrapped tightly in the quilt, so the distance was very close. Because of their closeness, the temperature under the quilt was extremely high. Plus, the occasional skin contact made the impulse in Jian Xingzhi raising its head again.
He subconsciously backed up some, pulling away from Qin Wanwan. He slightly grasped Qin Wanwan’s hand and wrote in abbreviation, “Feng Yalou House, Hua Ling, the most beloved male pet of the city lord.”
Qin Wanwan nodded and continued to write: progress?
Jian Xingzhi felt a little breathless, he pretended to be calm and wrote back: 80.
Qin Wanwan’s movements paused.
Jian Xingzhi didn’t enter Hua Rong’s house as the Hua Ling, but his task still progressed 80%, which means the core of this task was getting into the city lord, Hua Rong’s house.
Now that he has entered by any means, 80% of the task was completed and the last 20% was the requirement for him to become Hua Rong’s most favourite male pet.
According to Qin Wanwan’s last task of selecting a spiritual sword from the Sword Mound, Jian Xingzhi’s task was to help her in the task. So Jian Xingzhi’s task of entering the city lord, Hua Rong’s house and becoming his favourite male pet must be connected to her task, “Enter the city, Guicheng and obtain Linglong Jade“.
So as long as the mission also guaranteed that Qin Wanwan had the chance to obtain the Linglong Jade, Jian Xingzhi’s mission could be completed too.
Qin Wanwan checked her mission panel and found that her mission progress had only reached 30%. She was sure of her hypothesis that both her and Jian Xingzhi’s tasks were connected. As she listened to the sound of the fight outside, she thought about the man she had just seen and also thought about Xie Lutang’s handsome face before raising her head and looking at Jian Xingzhi who was sweating with a red face for some reason, and suddenly a bold idea lit up in her mind.
“Change back to your face in the Immortal Realm.”
When Qin Wanwan wrote on his hand, Jian Xingzhi froze, and then felt Qin Wanwan starting to pull his clothes.
Jian Xingzhi grabbed the waistband of his pants and spoke in shock: “What are you doing!”
Outside, Cuilu stopped fighting as soon as she heard the sound. She looked accusingly at Xie Lutang and exclaimed, “There really is someone hiding here!”
Saying this, Cuilu hesitated no longer and raised her hand to push Xie Lutang away. Xie Lutang was surprised, but before he could do anything, he was thrown backward by Cuilu. The guards beside Cuilu immediately rushed forward and pressed a sword on Xie Lutang’s neck.
Cuilu walked towards the inner room in an aggressive manner. Qin Wanwan pressed Jian Xingzhi dominantly and coldly peeled off his clothes, revealing his snow-white chest. She kicked him out of the quilt as she instructed him, “Take advantage of your beauty and seduce Cuilu!”
Just as the words left her mouth, Cuilu fiercely pulled open the curtain.
Qin Wanwan curled up in the quilt and chanted a magic spell as she listened nervously to the movement outside. She started to prepare herself to fight if it was necessary.
However, even after waiting for a long time, there was no movement heard outside.
As the curtain was pulled by Cuilu, she stared at the bed with a shocked expression.
Her eyes landed on a man lying on the bed with his hair spread on the bed sheet and his snow white chest revealing outside. His face was red because he had been stuck inside the quilt for a while. With his disheveled appearance, he didn’t look vulgar but rather seductive and pure.
This kind of pure appearance mixed with seduction was too much for Cuilu. As she stared at Jian Xingzhi, the images she had seen in the picture book appeared one by one in her mind.
She stared dazedly at the person and couldn’t form any words for a long time.
