Zhan Qingchen said curiously, “What kind of deal?”
Chen Qingluan said seriously, “No matter who we fall in love with in the future, we will always be best friends.”
Zhan Qingchen laughed, “I think so, that’s for sure, we are best friends for life.”
Chen Qingluan’s cheeks flushed slightly.
That was exactly what she expected.
Had it not been like that, she was afraid…
Anyway, no matter what, Chen Qingluan did not want to lose her good friend.
She looked at Zhan Qingchen who was at the side.
Since she was lying on the bed, her moon-white daoist robe was pressed underneath her, outlining her delicate and beautiful body.
“Your body seems to be getting better and better?”
“Let me check it out.”
Chen Qingluan drew a bad smile and couldn’t help but spread out her magic fingers.
“No, stop it, it’s ticklish!”
Zhan Qingchen struggled and made a sighing sound.
The two of them made a mess on the bed, and the beautiful scenery was enough to make one stop blinking.
Northern Region, Xuefeng City.
Two figures walked into the city gate.
The man was handsome and unprecedented, the woman was graceful and radiant, attracting many eyeballs for a while.
It was none other than Su Shi and Zhan Qingchen.
“Let’s stop here to rest first.”
Su Shi said.
Zhan Qingchen nodded, “Alright.”
The two of them had left the Central Plains region and entered the Chengtian region after walking north from the Imperial Capital.
The range was not far from the Land of Great Clouds.
But they were in no hurry to get there.
Zhan Qingchen held Su Shi’s arm, and the two of them wandered the streets.
Facing the gazes thrown by the pedestrians around them, her brows furrowed slightly, her heart a little uncomfortable.
Su Shi saw this in her eyes.
He looked up and looked around, then pulled her towards a small stall.
This small stall was filled with all kinds of masks.
Su Shi picked two at random.
One was a rabbit and the other was a pig’s head.
He handed the rabbit mask to Zhan Qingchen, “Here, so you won’t worry about being noticed by people anymore.”
Saying that, he put on the pig head mask himself first.
Looking at the stupid little pig, Zhan Qingchen couldn’t help but laugh, “Childish, you’ll only attract more stares like that, won’t you?”
Nonetheless, warmth swept through her eyes and she put on the little rabbit mask.
The two of them walked on, their strange appearance attracting more attention.
But with the mask blocking their view, Zhan Qingchen felt more comfortable.
Holding Su Shi’s hand, she walked at a brisk pace, her legs jumping up and down, full of the vigor of a young girl.
Looking at that cheerful figure, Su Shi’s eyes were full of tenderness.
In the beginning they didn’t have any relationship, and their identity gap was huge, but this girl still wanted to be with him.
Behind that cold and unfriendly shell, she had a tender heart, with the pure of an innocent little girl.
Zhan Qingchen turned around, “What’s wrong?”
Su Shi said seriously, “I like you.”
Under the rabbit mask, her beautiful face crept with a deep red color, her eyes seemed as bright as the stars, “Bad guy, I like you too.”
The two looked at each other, and Su Shi slowly lowered his head.
The masks clashed against each other.
A little girl passing by saw the scene and said in amazement, “Mommy, look, the pig’s head is biting the rabbit’s mouth!”
“Hush, don’t look! Sorry, you two carry on.”
The woman pulled the child away at a brisk pace.
The atmosphere was a little awkward.
Su Shi scratched his head, “Forgot about this thing, why don’t we take it off and do it again?”
Zhan Qingchen gave him a shy white look, “Who wants to do it again with you? Pig-headed!”
Then she turned around and ran away as fast as she could.
After a long walk, the two of them walked into an inn.
Although the decoration was not very luxurious, it was better because the environment was elegant and not too noisy.
“Sir, would you like to eat or stay?”
The waiter greeted them.
She paused for a moment when she saw what the two people looked like.
But then she returned to her normal self.
There are many people in this city, most of them wearing strange costumes, so wearing a mask is no big deal.
“A room upstairs and two buckets of hot water. The room must be clean, we don’t like to be disturbed.”
Su Shi casually tossed a gold bar.
The waiter weighed it and smiled brightly, “Don’t worry, I will definitely arrange the best room for you!”
“Honored guest, please follow me!”
Inside the room.
Su Shi was lying on the bed, holding a jade hairpin in his hand.
The hairpin was inlaid with gold and jade, luxurious and noble, with a golden phoenix spreading its wings and hovering engraved on it.
This was given to her by Feng Chaoge before he left.
Although it was not a spiritual treasure, she had worn it since the year she reached adulthood, and it had a very important and unique meaning.
[This is an amulet for sugaring you, from now on you will belong to me.]
The empress’s voice still seemed to be ringing in his ears.
Thinking about her drunkenness, her red jade cheeks, her sparkling eyes, and she hugged him obsessively and refused to let go.
Su Shi’s heart beat a little faster.
“Demon Empress attacked Nine Region for the sake of dragon qi.”
“If I can control true dragon qi, I will naturally be able to mediate the conflict between the Demonic path and the empire.”
This was not an imaginary thought.
(Tln: Dragon qi likely means the empire itself. In ancient China, the emperor was always considered to be a descendant of a god/dragon so emperor himself was a dragon.)
He mastered the True Dragon Perceiving Technique.
With enough cultivation, he even has the devastating power to reverse dragon veins and change the sky!
“It is still necessary to raise the realm as soon as possible.”
Su Shi’s thoughts sank into his dantian.
Within the dantian, the clouds billowed, the stars of the Milky Way emitted their light, and above the aura lake, an ancient little bell floated quietly.
After obtaining the bronze bell in Saxin Kingdom, a small piece of the broken bell wall in his dantian was repaired.
But there were still many gaps.
“If there are more than one Nine Profound Bell, just as the Demon Empress said.”
“Then it’s useless at the moment, maybe because there are too many gaps, or my cultivation level is not enough.”
The Nine Realms continent was vast in its unparalleled size.
The Human Realm was only one part of it.
In addition, there are also: Barbarian Realm, Thunder Realm, Earth Realm, Fire Realm, Wood Realm, Water Realm, Wind Realm, and Empyrean Realm.
If the Nine Profound Bells were truly scattered across the world, it would be a huge job to find them all.
“I just don’t know what use this little Dantian bell is?”
Su Shi was a little confused.
Ever since stepping into Nascent Soul, this little bell had basically not moved much.
Only when Han Hao used his soul power to sneak attack, did the sword emit a bell sound, instantly destroying the soul power flying sword.
Su Shi tried to sink his mind into it.
The ancient bell shook lightly, and the ancient seal on the bell wall lit up.
Su Shi’s perception instantly became extremely clear, and his divine sense was actually magnified many times over!
“This ancient bell can really strengthen soul power?”
Su Shi was filled with shock.
In the Nascent Soul Realm, when he first ventured into the divine soul, his soul power was still relatively weak, and his divine sense perception range was also very limited.
But he was now overlooking the surrounding hundred miles, and the entire Xuefeng City was in full view!
Even the slightest movement of wind or grass could not escape his perception!
At that moment, he felt something.
“Hm? This is ……”
