“There seem to be too many cultivators in this city.”
Su Shi’s divine sense swept away.
He only saw that there were quite a few cultivators living in each restaurant, and they all seemed not too low.
Most of them were at the end of Foundation Establishment to Golden Elixir Realm, and some had reached the Perfect Stage of Golden Elixir Realm.
This was indeed somewhat abnormal for a small town in the Northern Region.
Hearing the sound of their conversation, Su Shi couldn’t help but frown.
“Feng Jiang? A demonic beast?”
These people seemed to be here to get rid of demonic beasts?
Su Shi thought for a moment, and it seemed ~ there was no relevant plot in the book.
He didn’t bother to investigate further, it had nothing to do with himself anyway.
He retracted his divine sense and returned his consciousness to the room.
The extraordinary use of the Dantian Ancient Bell was a considerable advantage.
He had mastered several top-level techniques, but there was indeed a shortcoming in the field of divine soul attacks.
This ancient bell could barely make up for the deficiency. At least a sneak attack like Han Hao’s wouldn’t be able to hurt him.
Su Shi opened his eyes.
He saw Zhan Qingchen lying beside him, her right hand supporting her chin, her bright eyes unblinkingly looking at him.
“What are you looking at? Are there flowers on my face?”
Zhan Qingchen nodded, “There is a peach blossom.”
Su Shi froze for a moment, “You …… are still not jealous, right?”
“I’m not jealous.”
Zhan Qingchen turned her head to ignore him.
Su Shi came to her ear, “Qingchen?”
Zhan Qingchen seemed to be deaf.
“…… cough cough!”
Zhan Qingchen couldn’t hold back any longer and her pretty face flushed, “Who, who are you calling baby?”
Su Shi smiled and said, “Of course it’s my little baby Qingchen.”
“Don’t say that!”
Zhan Qingchen covered her mouth, unable to raise her head in embarrassment.
How did this person say such embarrassing words?
“Not jealous anymore?”
Su Shi asked.
“Hmph, don’t think you’ve gotten away with it.”
“You haven’t told me clearly about the Western Princess matter.”
Zhan Qingchen snorted, “What a touching love to save the princess from falling deep into a heavy siege?”
Seeing that wry look, Su Shi couldn’t help but let out a small laugh.
But this matter really shouldn’t be hidden from her.
So he told her about his journey to obtain the divine pearl, his first meeting with Alia, and the crisis of the destruction of the Saxin Kingdom.
He told her the whole story.
Zhan Qingchen’s mouth opened slightly.
I didn’t expect that Su Shi had experienced so many things in the Western Region?
After listening to everything, she fell silent.
Su Shi sighed, “Qingchen, I know you might be very angry, but I ……”
Before he could finish his words, Zhan Qingchen buried herself into his arms, her beautiful face buried in his solid chest.
Feeling the moist coolness coming from his chest, Su Shi suddenly panicked.
“Qingchen, what’s wrong with you? Don’t cry.”
He was really panicking.
Zhan Qingchen raised her head, her eyes moist with water, and whispered, “I’m not angry, I just feel useless, like I can’t help with anything.”
“You’ve gone through so much danger, but I don’t know anything about it, and I’m still playing around a little.”
“If you really have been buried in the sand or fallen in the middle of a war, I, I ……”
As she spoke, her small mouth shrunk, and tears almost fell again.
Su Shi was stunned.
He had not expected the other party’s concern to be not with Alia, but with how much danger he had been in all this time.
He gently stroked her long hair and said softly, “Who said you were useless? You may not know it, but you are the one who changed my life.”
Zhan Qingchen shook her head, “You have also changed my life.”
Leaning into the strong arms, her slender fingers drew circles on his chest.
“I knew there would be many girls around you, and I didn’t expect you to only like me.”
“I just wish I could occupy a small corner of your heart.”
She measured with her thumb and forefinger, “A little, just a little is enough.”
Seeing that serious gaze, Su Shi couldn’t help but sigh.
The two embraced each other quietly and the air felt hushed and quiet.
After a while, Zhan Qingchen whispered, “The words you just said, can you say it again?”
Su Shi was confused, “Which words?”
Zhan Qingchen’s voice whispered, her voice like a mosquito, “You just called me a little, little baby…”
Su Shi suppressed a smile, “Little Qingchen baby?”
Zhan Qingchen’s cheeks burned, but the corners of her mouth curled up in a charming curve.
“I’m his baby~…”
Knock, knock, knock
At that moment, there was a knock on the door.
“Guest, the water has been boiled.”
Su Shi got up and opened the door.
The servant brought two bathing buckets with gusts of hot air still steaming from them.
“Enjoy your time.”
The servant retreated.
Su Shi looked back, only to see Zhan Qingchen set up a screen between the two bathtubs, blushed and said:
“You are not allowed to peep.”
He shook his head, “I should have known that I only needed a bucket of water.”
Soon, the sound of water came from behind the screen.
The screen was a semi-permeable cloth, and through the dim candlelight, ethereal figures could be seen.
“Chief Zhan, would you like me to help with the back rub? I’m very professional.”
Hearing her rejection voice, Su Shi smiled and entered the bathtub alone.
Although the two of them were deeply in love, he still held back and did not cross the finish line.
The reason was simple.
If something really happened between the two of them, it would definitely not be able to be hidden from Sikong Lanyue.
What Zhan Qingchen would face then would not only be as simple as being punished, but perhaps she would not even be able to maintain her position as Chief Disciple.
“It’s not an easy task to get rid of that Daoist nun.”
Su Shi sighed.
Soaking in the warm clear water, his mind slowly disengaged and his soul calmed down.
He didn’t know how long it took, but he suddenly felt the water shake.
Su Shi opened his eyes.
His entire body froze instantly.
He only saw Zhan Qingchen soaking in the same tub as him, with only a small head exposed outside.
“What are you ……”
Zhan Qingchen’s cheeks flushed and his eyes fluttered, “I, I want to help you rub your back.”
Su Shi swallowed.
It’s already hard for me to continue holding back, why are you provoking me instead?
The next day at noon.
Su Shi’s nose felt itchy.
A soft voice sounded in his ear: “Stop sleeping, slacker, the sun is already shining!”
He did not even open his eyes, and directly took her body into his arms.
“I purposely held back last night, why are you provoking me?”
Pressing her beautiful body beneath him, he placed his hands on her slender waist.
Zhan Qingchen looked confused, she stammered, “What, what do you say all of a sudden!”
Su Shi was just about to say something when suddenly a shout came from outside the window: “Man-eater, demonic beast is eating people again!”
