Chapter 15 – The Love Between Men And Women is a Poison that Pierces the Heart (2)
In an ancient pavilion.
Zhan Qingchen and the white figure sat opposite each other.
The person seemed to be surrounded by clouds and mist, unable to see her figure or appearance, and exuding an ethereal and dusty aura.
It was as if she was not from this world.
“This disciple has come to meet Master.”
Zhan Qingchen greeted respectfully.
This was her personal master in front of her, a powerhouse who could be said to be on the same level as the Netherworld Demon Empress and suppress the demon hordes with the strength of one person.
Patriarch of Tianji Pavilion, Sikong Lanyue!
Sikong Lanyue nodded slightly and asked, “Zhaozhao, how is the situation in the Southwest Region?”
The voice was unclear and hard to catch, and it was even impossible to hear whether it was a man or a woman.
Zhan Qingchen replied, “The Southwest Region is occupied by the Demon Sect, and it is difficult for the Righteous forces to penetrate it, so I’m afraid it will take a lot of effort to completely eradicate it.”
Sikong Lanyue shook her head, “The mission given to you by the sect is to kill Fengsha City’s commander Su Shi, when did I ask you to eradicate the Demon Sect forces?”
Zhan Qingchen’s heart jumped.
Could it be that Master already knew about it?
This is a big deal!
“Sorry, Master, I ……”
“You’ve done well.”
Sikong Lanyue said, “With Su Shi’s death confirmed, the Netherworld Demon Empress’s plan to enter Nanli City is temporarily put on hold, which is tantamount to slowing down the progress of the Demonic Sect in the Central Plains in disguise.”
Zhan Qingchen froze, “What are you saying? Su Shi is dead?”
Sikong Lanyue was puzzled, “The person you killed with your own hands is still unclear to you?”
Zhan Qingchen’s eyes drifted and she said faintly, “I did stab him in the vitals at the time, but then there was a slight accident …… cough, how did you determine that he was dead?”
Sikong Lanyue didn’t think much of it and said, “Netherworld Demon Empress issued a Black Killing Order to kill you to avenge Su Shi, isn’t the answer obvious?”
“So that’s how it is.”
Zhan Qingchen breathed a sigh of relief.
It was clear that this was a misunderstanding.
Su Shi is not dead at all, it’s just that the Demon Empress doesn’t know it yet.
But there was no way she could explain this, in case it aroused the Master’s suspicion.
Seeing her silent, Sikong Lanyue thought she was afraid and said comfortingly, “You don’t need to be too afraid, this Black Killing Order is complicated but as long as you remain in the sect, no one can touch a single hair on your head.”
Saying this, Sikong Lanyue was actually also somewhat uneasy.
Because when the Black Killing Order came out, they would not stop until the target was dead.
As the highest level killing unit of the Demon Sect, it had been decades since the Order had appeared.
This time, it was suddenly issued without warning.
They even sent Western Saint Cen Baihu!
Under the Demon Empress were four Saints, twenty-eight constellations, and one hundred and ninety-six demon generals.
Being a demon general was enough to be in charge of city affairs.
A constellation was in charge of a continent.
And the Saints did not go out at will and represented the top combat power of the demonic sect.
This time, sending out the Western Saint showed how strong the Netherworld Demon Empress’ killing intent was!
And that was to fight Zhan Qingchen, a Chief Disciple, who had nothing less than declared war on the entire Tianji Pavilion!
Although Nanli City was important, but the Su family was not the only way to control the city. Why would they go to such lengths?
Sikong Lanyue pondered darkly.
Zhan Qingchen frowned, “Does Master mean this disciple can only stay in the sect from now on?”
Sikong Lanyue nodded, “Unless the Demon Empress retracts the order, it’s too dangerous to venture outside.”
Zhan Qingchen lowered her head sadly.
Didn’t that mean I wouldn’t be able to see Su Shi for a long time?
“The mundane world is flashy and chaotic, it’s good to stay in the sect, lest you let the mundane world affect your dao heart.”
Zhan Qingchen’s cheeks flushed slightly.
Her daoist heart already been corrupted by Su Shi ……
“Master, is the mundane world really as terrifying as you say?” Zhan Qingchen couldn’t help but ask.
Sikong Lanyue said, “When treading the path of immortality, you must forget your emotions and forget your desires. The affairs of men and women will only cloud the dao and undermine your foundation, pulling you into the abyss of degradation.”
“Is that so?”
Zhan Qingchen said curiously, “Then how does Master know all this?”
Sikong Lanyue replied, “My Master told me about it.”
Zhan Qingchen understood, “That means you haven’t actually tried it?”
Sikong Lanyue frowned and said, “How could I possibly try such a dirty thing?”
Zhan Qingchen bit his lip and said carefully, “Action is a way to confirm whether knowledge is true before coming to a conclusion. Master must fall in love first, what if it is completely different from what you imagined?”
“What are you saying?”
Sikong Lanyue froze for a moment, and then the clouds fluctuated violently.
“How dare you ask me to fall in love?”
“I’m just giving you advice ……”
“Presumptuous! You will be punished with half a month of seclusion!”
Before Zhan Qingchen could finish her sentence, Sikong Lanyue waved her sleeve robe and directly threw her out.
“This rebel, getting more and more impudent, how dare you utter such obscenities in front of me!”
Sikong Lanyue’s body was surrounded by clouds and mist, clearly not feeling happy.
After a long time, humming could be heard in the room.
“The love between a man and a woman is a poison that pierces the heart. I will never be fooled!”
In the study, Su Shi leisurely sipped his tea, and the fragrant aroma of the tea permeated the air.
Opposite him stood six men, looking somewhat frightened and agitated.
“Commander Su, what were your orders to summon us here?”
One of them asked cautiously.
After seeing Su Shi’s methods, facing this Commander again, several people were under great pressure in their hearts.
Su Shi put down his teacup and cleared his throat.
“I will give you all an opportunity, it depends on you whether you can achieve it, though.”
