In the room.
Su Shi leaned on Zhan Qingchen’s lap, their eyes met, and the air was filled with a touch of warmth.
Thinking of the loving tenderness just now, Zhan Qingchen’s pretty face flushed slightly.
“Su Shi, isn’t it too dangerous for us to do this?”
She asked in a small voice.
She was a direct disciple of Tianji Pavilion, and after growing up under the influence of her Master, deep down she was very disgusted with the love of men and women, and even felt disgusted when she saw a man.
But Su Shi was an exception.
It was as if she had been struck by a thunderbolt of tribulation, and in front of this man, she could not lift an ounce of energy.
This made her panic and at the same time there was a vague feeling of guilt.
She seemed to have betrayed her Master’s trust ……
Su Shi smiled, “I haven’t done anything more dangerous though.”
Zhan Qingchen looked at him blankly and frowned, “Bastard.”
There was a slight tension in her heart.
If this man really played this kind of idea, she was worried that there was nothing she could do to resist….
Su Shi saw through what she was thinking, shook his head and said, “Don’t worry, I know what’s your thinking, and I won’t do things that are excessive.”
“Your master has a profound way of doing things. If she were to find out, it would not be a good thing for you.”
Tianji Pavilion was, after all, a Daoist cultivation sect.1
And with Sikong Lanyue’s character, if she found out about the relationship between the two of them, Zhan Qingchen would definitely not be able to become the main heir.
When Zhan Qingchen saw that he was thinking of her, she was touched and at the same time apologized slightly.
“Sorry, I can’t …… now.”
Before she could finish her words, her cherry lips were blocked by his fingers.
Su Shi said, “No need to apologize, I’m not in too much of a hurry, besides, you are my woman, sooner or later we will eventually be able to be together.”
“Humph, who are you calling your woman?”
Zhan Qingchen hummed softly, but her eyes were full of laughter.
At that moment, she remembered something and asked, “By the way, do you know where Chen Qingluan is?”
Su Shi shrugged, “I let her go a long time ago, so she should have already returned.”
Zhan Qingchen breathed a sigh of relief.
Su Shi pinched her snowy face, “There are treasures in the Northern Region’s Tianqu Mountain, so you should also go there, you should get something.”
Zhan Qingchen didn’t ask more questions and nodded her head obediently.
Su Shi sighed, “It’s a pity we can’t travel together.”
With Cen Yiren as a bodyguard, they could only go their separate ways.
Zhan Qingchen gave him a quick peck on the cheek and said with a red face, “I will wait for you at Tianqu Mountain.”
After saying that, she was about to get up and leave.
As a result, she was pulled back by Su Shi, “Want to escape?”
“..it’s not that easy!”
Half an hour later.
Zhan Qingchen floated above Fengsha City, an unbroken red halo still visible on her face.
“This bastard, my mouth is swollen again ……”
At this moment, an eagle split the long sky and landed on Zhan Qingchen’s shoulder, holding a jade in its mouth.
“Is this a letter from the sect?”
Zhan Qingchen took the jade, and as its spiritual energy entered into her, the contents naturally appeared in her mind.
“What a coincidence, Master also wants me to go there.”
Immediately afterwards, the wind whistled and another eagle flew over.
“Two messages in a row?”
Zhan Qingchen curiously picked up the jade, and his whole body froze when he saw the contents.
The second jade contained only ten words recorded inside.
[Su Shi, Holy-grade perfect talent, avoid him for now!]
“Holy, Holy-grade perfect?!”
Cen Yiren opened her eyes in a daze.
Looking around her at the unfamiliar surroundings, her eyes quickly regained their clarity and she rolled like a leopard.
“I’m here, don’t shout.”
She heard the voice and looked up, only to see Su Shi sitting on a chair with his legs crossed.
Cen Yiren sighed in relief.
It was good that this man was fine.
“Where is Zhan Qingchen?”
“I clearly saw her just now, could it be that Tianji Pavilion attacked you?”
Su Shi shrugged, “She was the only one who came, and she was already beaten by me.”
“She was alone?”
Cen Yiren froze, confused, “How dare she barge in here alone?”
Now that the Soutwest Region was under the control of the Demonic path, the slightest bit of Zhan Qingchen’s existence was revealed, it could lead to disaster.
“By the way, how did you fight her?”
“That… I first attacked her weak points using my hands, then spat pearls into her mouth to mess with her mind, and finally she was beaten back and fled.”
Cen Yiren nodded, “It looks like it was a fierce battle.”
Su Shi agreed, “It was very intense.”
Cen Yiren frowned slightly, “But how could I faint? At that time, Zhan Qingchen was standing in the distance, so if she was just alone, then who knocked me out?”
“Cough…. it should have been because of her dao.”
Su Shi rubbed his nose awkwardly and looked a little unnatural.
“It should be.”
Ceng Yiren did not think much of it.
Su Shi breathed a sigh of relief and said, “Rest up, and we’ll set out again in the morning.”
Ceng Yiren hummed, “It turns out that you still have a bit of a conscience.”
Su Shi secretly sighed.
Although Cen Yiren was a cruel and brainless maniac, she was indeed a dedicated “bodyguard” who always thought of his safety.
Instead, he slapped her unconscious…. ……
This made Su Shi feel vaguely guilty.
After thinking about it, he took out a piece of golden marrow and threw it to her.
Ceng Yiren was puzzled, “What do you mean by this?”
Su Shi said expressionlessly, “You are too weak, how can you be a competent bodyguard if you don’t cultivate properly?”
After saying that, he got up and left.
“Nonsense, I am not weak!”
Cen Yiren waved her fist dissatisfiedly.
She then looked at the jade in her hand flickering with divine light, her expression slightly puzzled.
Golden marrow is an extremely precious cultivation resource.
Not only does it reserve several times the spiritual power of high-grade spirit stones, it may also contain fragments of Dao intent.
If one could successfully comprehend it, this would be extremely beneficial to one’s cultivation.
Even if she was of high status, she would never have too many of these treasures.
“Hmph, you think that a piece of golden marrow can buy me?”
Ceng Yiren had an arrogant face, but the corners of her mouth were slightly curved upwards.
“Reporting to the commander, Chief Zhan has left the Southwest Region, and this subordinate is confident that no one is following her.”
Wu Mang knelt down on one knee.
Su Shi nodded.
After all, this was Demonic path territory, and he was worried that Zhan Qingchen might be targeted, so he deliberately asked Wu Mang and Shadows to escort her in the shadows.
“Tomorrow I will leave for the Northern Region, and I will leave all of Fengsha City’s affairs to you.”
Wu Mang replied.
He hesitated for a moment and asked, “Does the commander want to take Shadows with you? It would be good to have someone to look after.”
Su Shi shook his head, “No need, let them stay behind to protect Bai Qing.”
The journey to Tianqu Mountain might be dangerous, and five Shadows would not be much help, and he did not want to cause any unnecessary sacrifices.
Knock, knock, knock.
At this moment, there was a knock on the door of the room and Bai Qing’s voice came, “Master, Qing’er has come to help you warm up your bed.”
There was a hint of awkwardness in the atmosphere.
“This subordinate will take his leave!”
Wu Mang quickly walked to the window and turned around.
Su Shi had a black face, “Can’t you take the front door?”
1. I wasn’t too sure at first, but their sect is a sect full of Daoist Priests who naturally forbid male-female relationships
