Chapter 9 – He is one of my people, not something you can kill just because you want to.
The Southern Border of Northern Region.
A cliff stretches for thousands of miles.
Deeply shrouded in mist, the view is less than half a meter and you cannot see where the other side is.
Yet beneath this cliff, which is difficult for birds to cross, lies a great demonic sect that makes the world tremble.
The Rakshasa Sect of Netherworld!
Through a layer of mist, a shocking array of buildings came into view.
Houses were scattered all over the place.
It was a wonder who had the power to create such a huge complex of buildings under a steep cliff!
The palace in the center was extremely luxurious. With a shiny golden roof emitting endless light, a black plaque hung above the door with two large blood-colored letters that read:
Inside the palace.
A beautiful figure could be faintly seen behind the phoenix curtains.
Her silhouette leaned lazily on the embroidered sofa, although her appearance could not be seen, her every behavior moved the heart.
The messenger in black knelt on the ground, his head bowed low and his eyes unblinking.
Because he knew that if he dared to look up once more, his head would leave his body forever.
“Your Majesty, a clue has come from the Southwest Region.”
The woman’s voice sounded lazy.
The messenger in black said, “Five days ago, Su Shi, the leader of Fengsha City, dueled with Zhan Qingchen, the Chief Disciple of Tianji Pavilion, and the outcome of the fight is unknown.”
“But Zhan Qingchen returned to her sect that night, while Su Shi we haven’t heard anything so far, most likely ……”
“He is already dead.”
The woman said indifferently, “Zhan Qingchen is at the Realm of Golden Elixir, while Su Shi is only at the Late Stage of Foundation Establishment, he will certainly die if he insists on duel.”
“It’s unfortunate, I still want to use the Su family to enter Nanli City, but now it seems that plan will be put on hold for the time being.”
Her tone did not fluctuate in the slightest, as if she did not care about Su Shi’s death.
The messenger in black asked, “With Su Shi’s death, what about Fengsha City’s affairs?”
“Just find someone to take over, it’s just a small place, not worthy of undue attention.”
Speaking at this point, the woman looked a little tired and waved her hand, “You can leave.”
The messenger in black bowed and retreated.
The great hall became deathly quiet.
After an unknown period of time, a sigh came from behind the phoenix curtain.
“Su Shi …… He seems to have been in my care since he was seven years old, doesn’t he?”
“Although he has average talent and a stupid brain, but after all, he is one of my people, not something you can kill just because you want to.”
“This subordinate is here.”
The air swirled in the corner of the palace and a shadow-like figure knelt on one knee.
“Tell Cen Baihu to issue the Black Killing Order, I want Zhan Qingchen dead!”
Su Shi wore a pure white brocade robe, outlining a straight and erect figure.
He was a handsome and dashing man, with his sword brows and starry eyes, like a true gentleman in a turbulent world.
Zhan Qingchen stared at him with unblinking eyes.
Why didn’t I realize that he looked so handsome before?
“Su Shi, do you really want to leave now?”
Zhan Qingchen asked aloud.
Su Shi nodded, “There is no impenetrable wall in this world, should news of my being here spread, it would not be a good thing for you and me.”
After all, Medicinal House was the residence of Tianji Pavilion.
As a Demon General, it was already a very risky act for him to stay here for a few days.
Moreover, his duel with Zhan Qingchen was no secret.
After so long without any news, he still did not know what kind of chaos would occur in Fengsha City.
But with that Nether Demon Empress’s character, I’m afraid she won’t care whether I live or die.
Su Shi shook his head and smiled bitterly.
Zhan Qingchen looked a little glum.
She understood all his reasons, but when it came time to part, her heart was still full of longing and unwillingness.
It was strange to say.
She had been alone before and didn’t feel anything wrong, but after spending these few days with Su Shi, the loneliness became so unbearable.
Su Shi said comfortingly, “This place is not far from Nanli City, Chief Zhan can come and sit at my house sometime.”
“To your house?”
Zhan Qingchen’s heart skipped a beat.
Doesn’t that mean I’m going to meet his parents?
Su Shi saw her thoughts and said with a smile, “Don’t be nervous, an ugly daughter-in-law has to meet her father-in-law sooner or later.”
“I’m not ugly!”
“No, I’m not even a daughter-in-law yet!”
Zhan Qingchen exhaled in anger and pinched him.
After he interrupted, the sadness of separation faded a little.
Su Shi reached out and took her in his arms, gently stroking her satin hair.
“Chief Zhan, I will miss you.”
It started off as a misunderstanding.
But after a few days together, he was deeply touched by this cold-hearted fairy.
Zhan Qingchen snorted, “But I don’t miss you at all.”
Although she said so, her hands clung to him, refusing to let go in any way.
Smelling the refreshing scent of her body, Su Shi’s eyes twinkled, “Since we are separated, can Chief Zhan grant me one wish?”
Zhan Qingchen raised her head, “What wish …… Mmm!”
The words suddenly stopped.
Her beautiful eyes opened wide, her eyes were colored with mist, even her earlobes gradually turned red, and her body stiffened like a doll.
After a long time, the two separated.
She remained frozen in place, as if she had lost her soul.
Su Shi leaned closer to her ear and whispered, “Chief Zhan, you are really sweet.”
“You, you temptress!!!”
Zhan Qingchen regained consciousness, her pretty face flushed and she raised her hand to hit him.
But Su Shi had already escaped in an instant.
She stomped her feet in shame and anger.
“That p*rverted bastard!”
After a while, she calmed down and her eyes glazed over slightly.
“Is this what it feels like …… to be in love?”
Confused, embarrassed, uncomfortable, and with a hint of longing.
An unprecedented feeling filled the heart and for a moment made Zhan Qingchen a little obsessed.
At this moment, Xiaoqing walked in.
“Huh, where’s Su Shi?”
Zhan Qingchen whispered, “Gone.”
“That ungrateful bastard, he didn’t tell me when he left.”
Xiaoqing muttered angrily, “How could he not say anything after I took care of him for days?”
Zhan Qingchen glared at her, “Have you finished cleaning the hut?”
“Yes. Chief, why is your mouth red? Is the rouge not evenly spread?”
“…… I’ve already decided.”
“To fine you another six months’ salary.”
