After Becoming the Hero’s Ex-fiancée - Chapter 116
Non-Emptiness Sutra (3)
Especially Qing Shuang; he had initially thought that this Little Junior Sister would ask him for help when they were halfway up the mountain. After all, even those in the late phase of the Gateway stage might not be able to reach the summit; this was also one of the peak’s entrance tests——
Who would’ve thought that this Little Junior Sister actually managed to bear it, and even walked all the way up without a peep.
“Little Junior Sister is really amazing.”
Qing Shuang recalled the past, scratched the back of his head and said, “I was carried up by Master back then.”
Zheng Wan gasped for breath, and only said as she climbed, “Eldest Senior Brother, cast a cleansing spell on me.” When she entered the late phase of the Gateway stage, this must be the first arts she would learn.
The earlier phases of the Gateway stage was for tempering the body and strengthening it, it wasn’t too different from being a regular mortal.
“Little Junior Sister, we’re here.”
Qing Shuang really cast a cleansing spell on her; Zheng Wan smoothed her skirt and stood blankly at the so-called peak master’s residence.
The majestic splendour was like that of a palace on earth; putting aside the fact that there was no immortal flair, there were even all red sandalwood and gold pillar carvings of… erotic pictures?
Zheng Wan looked away, her cheeks flaming red.
Qing Shuang coughed.
“Little Junior Sister, don’t misunderstand, this, this is Master’s cultivation needs. Maintaining an unstirred heart in the face of obscenity, is what makes this manor d-different.”
Zheng Wan nodded and walked in with her eyes kept down.
In the main house, it was, on the contrary, a burst of elegant sandalwood, and all the sinuous figures in the courtyard were gone. The goose-yellow shirted Daojun she had met in the trial hall was sitting solemnly in the seat of honour. He had a pair of long, narrow eyes; long brows that tapered off to his temples; a straight, upturned nose; and lips that were thin and defined, yet displayed a peach blossom red that’s only seen in early spring.
He cast his gaze at her, and it was like the rippling waters in autumn. Zheng Wan squeezed her skirts and thought, if it had to be said, as a real woman, against her master, a real man, she seemed to be coarser in comparison.
Just when Zheng Wan was about to kneel to pay respects to her master, a clear voice rang out from the side. A female cultivator wearing a white hidden flower dress came fluttering in. With every step she took, there was the jingle of silver bells. Immediately after, a face appeared in front of her; it was thin and long, but had a pair of huge eyes, and looked rather innocent and cherubic.
It’s just that, this innocence soon became ferocious, and she ran to Zi Xiu Daojun’s, pouting.
“Master, who is she? I don’t like her face, I’ll cut it!”
Qing Shuang hastily stopped her.
“Third Junior Sister, this is Master’s newly accepted little disciple, you can’t——”
In a flash, Zheng Wan suddenly remembered that in her dream, there was an extremely talented but eccentric female cultivator whose name was ‘Zi Cha’. It was said that she was mentally incomplete, and whenever she saw a good-looking person, she would want to cut their faces. Because of that, she had even chased after Cui Wang for quite a while, saying that she wanted to cut his face.
Zi Cha put her dagger away hesitantly and turned to their master.
Zi Xiu Daojun sent her aside and beckoned Zheng Wan over. “Zi Cha, she will be your Little Junior Sister from now on, you have to take care of her, understand?”
Zi Cha looked at Zheng Wan’s face with uncertainty.
“But she’s pretty!”
Zheng Wan covered her face, “Thank you, Senior Sister, for the compliment.”
“Granny Jin, what cultivation level is this silly fool at? Can I win against her?”
“You can’t,” said Granny Jin in a manner of one who had been through everything, “She’s the same as your ex-lover, Savant stage.”
Zheng Wan was scared off. She smiled at Zi Cha and said sweetly, “Third Senior Sister.”
Recalling from the dream that this Zi Cha loved sweet fruits, she took out the Hongxin fruit she ordered yesterday at the inn. “This is for you.”
Zi Cha received it falteringly, took a bite, and immediately broke into a smile.
Zi Xiu Daojun couldn’t be bothered about such trifles and asked Zheng Wan about the scriptures she had practiced thus far. When he learned that it was the ‘Returning to the Origin Sutra’, he nodded. “It’s not bad. Even though it takes a long time to learn, it doesn’t conflict with any of the techniques in existence, and is the most neutral and peaceful of them all.
