Fengsha City, Commander Building.
A woman wearing a moon-white daoist robe and a veil over her face stood at the door.
It was none other than Zhan Qingchen.
The Black Killing Order had been lifted and the Sect Patriarch no longer forbade her from going out, so she had sneaked away to the Southwest Region.
Currently, the Southwest Region had been completely controlled by Demonic forces, with the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect’s ears and eyes everywhere, for a righteous practitioner like her it was as if walking into a tiger cage.
Fortunately, she had a deep cultivation base and was safe and sound along the way.
After a detour of nearly a thousand miles to make sure no one was following her, she arrived at Fengsha City.
Thinking that she would soon meet Su Shi, Zhan Qingchen’s bright eyes shone with surprise and anticipation, with a hint of shyness.
Knock knock knock.
She walked over and knocked on the door.
A moment later, the door opened and a beautiful young girl poked her head out.
Looking at the female cultivator in front of her, Bai Qing was puzzled, “Who are you looking for?”
Zhan Qingchen froze for a moment.
She sensed a familiar aura in the other party.
Super Grade Perfect!
Although she could not distinguish the roots and bones, but her senses could not be wrong.
This girl, like herself, was a Super Grade Perfect talent!
Since when did the demonic force have such a genius?
And more importantly.
Why did she appear in Su Shi’s house?
This young girl had delicate features, looking sweet and filled with the brightness of youth.
At first glance, she was the embryo of an extraordinary beauty.
I came all the way here to see him, but he’s already living with another woman?
Could it be that all the words he spoke to me were all lies since beginning?
Zhan Qingchen’s chest felt tight, and her nose was slightly sour.
The original surprise and anticipation had turned into sadness and sorrow at this moment.
Seeing that she hadn’t said anything for a long time, Bai Qing frowned and said, “Did you go to the wrong place? This is Commander Su’s house.”
“The one I’m looking for is Su Shi.”
Zhan Qingchen bolted and took a deep breath, “Tell him to come out and see me!”
No matter what happened.
She decided to give him a chance to explain.
Bai Qing rolled her eyes, “Who are you? How can you meet my Master just because you want to?”
Noticing the other party’s tone, Zhan Qingchen frowned slightly, “You called Su Shi like that, are you his servant?”
Bai Qing snorted, “Yes, what’s the problem?”
Zhan Qingchen froze.
A genius with Super Grade Perfect talent is actually willing to work as a servant for Su Shi?!
It seemed as if she is even proud of herself!
This was too outrageous!
At that moment, a slight rattling woke her up.
Looking back, she saw six men standing by her side, vaguely forming a group.
Six people in the Golden Elixir Realm?!
Zhan Qingchen was stunned for a while.
Isn’t Fengsha the most remote and weakest city in the Southwest Region?
But in just a short period of time, she had already seen six Golden Elixir practitioners and a Super Grade Perfect genius!
And that did not even include Su Shi, who was the commander!
Crouching tiger, hidden dragon!1
Sure enough, my suspicions were right, he deliberately lost to me from the very beginning….
Zhan Qingchen’s cherry lips curled slightly.
It seems that she is really important in Su Shi’s heart!
Wu Mang blocked in front of Bai Qing and said vigilantly, “Who has come to visit?”
This female cultivator was very strong.
He could not see through it.
Zhan Qingchen gathered her emotions and said, “I am …… a friend of Su Shi, and I came all the way here to see him.”
“A friend of the commander?”
Wu Mang asked in a deep voice, “Is there anything that can prove it?”
Zhan Qingchen hesitated for a moment, her cheeks flushed slightly under the veil, “Just say that Zhaozhao has come to see him, he will naturally understand when he hears it.”
“So this is the guest of honor.”
Wu Mang’s expression changed and he arched his hand, “I didn’t know that it was you who came to the door, so I hope you will forgive me if I offended you.”
Zhan Qingchen was puzzled, “You know me?”
Wu Mang said, “But the commander has instructed that if a girl named Zhaozhao comes here, he must fulfill all her requests and treat her as his guest, not to drive her away.”
Zhan Qingchen’s heart felt sweet when he heard that.
So Su Shi had been waiting for her all this time!
“Then where is he, why didn’t he come out to see me immediately?”
Zhan Qingchen’s voice jumped with joy, already looking forward to seeing him.
Wu Mang scratched his head, “This might be a bit difficult, the commander was summoned by the Demon Empress and already left to The Southern Border of Northern Region yesterday.”
“He’s not here?”
Zhan Qingchen’s mood instantly sank.
It seemed that she had traveled to no avail?
Wu Mang thought for a moment and said, “If you don’t mind, you can stay in the residence for a while, the Commander will be back in a few days.”
Zhan Qingchen nodded and said, “But you must remember not to let anyone know that I am here.”
Wu Mang replied, “Then please enter.”
I wonder what Su Shi’s face will look like when he sees me when he comes back?
Zhan Qingchen’s eyes narrowed as if they were curved crescents.
Seeing her aloof and cloudy aura, Bai Qing was a little puzzled for a moment.
When did master have a friend who was a female cultivator?
Northern Region Rift Valley.
Under the fog, the magnificent buildings were like layers of mountains, with drastic and rough air.
Disciples and deacons walked by, looking like an underground city-state.
A man in white slowly stepped into the mountain gate.
The air instantly became silent.
All eyes were focused on him.
He was the genius of the demonic path who had destroyed Chen Qingluan, occupied the Southwest Region and rose to the pinnacle of fame.
1. The name “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon” is a literal translation of the Chinese idiom “卧虎藏龙” which describes a place that is full of talented or extraordinary people who remain hidden and undiscovered, or simply means “talented or extraordinary people hidden from view”. It is from a poem of the ancient Chinese poet Yu Xin (513-581) that reads “暗石疑藏虎，盘根似卧龙”, meaning “behind the rock in the dark likely hides a tiger, and the coiled giant root resembles a crouching dragon.”
