The maid in green winced, “Chief, you’re hurting me.”
Only then did Zhan Qingchen realize that she had lost her temper and hurriedly removed her hand.
Xiaoqing rubbed her arm, looking confused.
Chief’s focus didn’t seem right…
Righteous force suffered a defeat and she was instead worrying about that demon?
“I noticed at the Medicinal House that Chief is very concerned about Su Shi.”
Xiaoqing frowned, “Could it be that you ……”
Zhan Qingchen’s head shook, “I’m not, I’m not.”
“Was he blackmailing you?”1
Xiaoqing analyzed, “Chef has always hated men, but it’s strange that you care so much about this demon, other than that, I can’t think of any other reason.”
This was the only explanation she could think of.
As for falling in love?
Don’t be silly.
Even if all the bikkhuni2 in the world became p*rverts, it would be impossible for Zhan Qingchen to fall in love.
Her excessive obsession with cleanliness, and her deep hatred for men.
How could she possibly have an affair with a demon from a demonic sect?
Xiaoqing simply thought this way.
Zhan Qingchen breathed a sigh of relief and shook her head, “It’s not what you think …… it’s a long story, I’ll tell you later when I have the chance. You answer first, how was Su Shi in the end? Was he injured?”
Xiaoqing shook her head and said, “Not only was Su Shi unharmed, but he also soared to great heights, defeating Chen Qingluan in public and becoming the Number One Genius in the Demonic path.”
Zhan Qingchen breathed a sigh of relief and suddenly froze for a moment.
“Wait a minute, what did you just say? Chen Qingluan?”
“That’s right, in the battle of Yulin City, Imperial Censor Chen disappeared and her whereabouts are still unknown.”
Hearing what Xiaoqing said, Zhan Qingchen’s delicate brows frowned slightly.
“I didn’t expect Qingluan to be involved in this as well.”
“But she should be fine, otherwise, the Demon Extermination Division would have already issued a notice as soon as possible.”
Chen Qingluan was bound to the Soul Jade.
In the event of an accident, the jade will break.
As for missing…
For some reason, she always felt that this had something to do with Su Shi.
“Looks like it’s time for me to travel to the Southwest Region.”
Hmph, I’m doing it for Qingluan, not to see that p*rvert ……
Thinking of that kiss when they parted, Zhan Qingchen’s eyes rippled and her fair and beautiful face faintly shone with a blush.
Seeing her shy appearance, Xiaoqing said with concern, “Chief, your face is so red, you don’t have a fever, do you?”
“You, who are you to say to have a h*rny3?!”
“You’ll be fined another one year’s salary!”
Su Shi stood in the empty room, looked at the ropes scattered on the floor, and sighed, “Looks like she recovered faster than I thought.”
Chen Qingluan was a genius of the sword dao.
Born with sword intent engraved in her bones, she had been forged with sword qi since she was young.
Whether it was the strength of her physical body or her ability to recover, she far surpassed ordinary Golden Elixir practitioners.
“Tsk, how could she just leave without saying a word after I took care of her the past few days?”
“That ungrateful woman.”
Su Shi snorted unhappily.
At that moment, a slurred voice sounded behind him.
“Who are you calling ungrateful?”
Su Shi turned to look.
He only saw Chen Qingluan standing in the doorway, holding a stack of pastries in her arms, her mouth stuffed full and both cheeks puffed out like a hamster.
Su Shi said suspiciously, “You’re not leaving?”
Chen Qingluan slurred as she ate the pastries, “My body had just recovered and I was really too hungry, so I went downstairs to buy some food.”
Saying that, she casually handed a piece of plum blossom pastry to Su Shi.
“Would you like to try it?”
Only after handing it out did she realize something was wrong.
The plum pasty was missing a piece and there were faint tooth marks on it, obviously she had just bitten into it.
She just wanted to take it back, but Su Shi had already picked it up and put it in his mouth.
“Not bad, it tastes good.”
Su Shi nodded his head.
Chen Qingluan pursed her lips, a hint of embarrassment sweeping across her eyes.
Su Shi scanned her chest, “Looks like you’ve recovered from your wounds?”
Chen Qingluan frowned slightly and covered her collar, “You p*rverted bastard, which way are you looking?”
Su Shi shrugged, “Hey what else do you need to cover up? Besides, it’s not like I’ve never touched them…”
Su Shi has to admit that Chen Qingluan has a good build.
Her waist was slender, her legs were long, and her br*asts were round and smooth like jade.
Perhaps due to the many years of sword qi softening her body, her skin was not as rough as other sword cultivators, instead it was white and smooth, like solid white jade.
Chen Qingluan stomped onto his foot hard.
I knew I should had left, I’m really annoyed with this perverted bastard!
Thinking of what happened two days ago, she was so embarrassed and angry that she wanted to pounce and bite him!
But then a sense of helplessness arose in her heart.
She can’t beat this guy ……
“By the way, I have something for you.”
Su Shi took out a long sword from his storage ring and casually tossed it to Chen Qingluan.
It was found among the spoils of war sent by Qiu Ao.
Chen Qingluan froze.
Surprise filled her eyes as she felt the blood connection from it.
Although this sword was not a supreme divine weapon, she had long been attached to it, having kept it close to her body for many years.
Now, after it was lost and found, her heart was filled with unspeakable joy.
Chen Qingluan whispered.
Su Shi waved his hand, unconcerned, “You treat me to a plum blossom pastry, and I’ve returned this broken sword to you, now we’re even.”
“It’s not a broken sword!”
Chen Qingluan’s nose wrinkled slightly.
Then she burst out laughing.
This man didn’t seem so obnoxious.
Seeing her flowery smile, Su Shi nodded and said, “Imperial Censor Chen should smile more often.”
Chen Qingluan blushed and snorted, “What difference does it make to you if I smile or not?”
Su Shi said seriously, “Imperial Censor Chen is easily offended and has serious violent tendencies. I am doing this for your own good.”
Chen Qingluan’s smile froze.
The long sword in her hand trembled slightly.
I retracted my previous thought, this Su Shi is so obnoxious!
