Ying Yuan Yu turned to face Luan Qing Xiao immediately: She found a spirit weapon but didn't leave it to him and instead gave it to her disciple !
Ying Yuan Yu has long been accustomed to Luan Qing Xiao putting himself prior to everything, which made him unable to accept this kind of thing at all.
“You, why…” Ying Yuan Yu's eyes flashed with confusion and disappointment.
Luan Qing Xiao: “…
…” This male lead really makes a person speechless.
You say you don't like me, yet when I treat others nicely, you become unhappy.
“It’s a pink silk sash, which was only suitable for Zhen’er.” Luan Qing Xiao lied through her teeth.
She didn't want Ying Yuan Yu to know that she had found other spiritual tools suitable for him.
Ying Yuan Yu raised his eyes slightly to look at the silk sash Nie Zhen'er described.
As expected, the color was a tender pink.
It was indeed suitable for women as well as… … Nie Zhen'er.
After fooling Ying Yuan Yu, Luan Qing Xiao said, “There are still seven days before the Snowy Gale Secret Realm closes.
Zhen'er and I have already found a suitable spiritual weapon and don’t plan to stay here.
Yuan Yu, you, are you going to leave with us or not?”
Ying Yuan Yu shook his head, “Luan Shi Shu, I still need a defensive weapon, so I won't be coming with you.”
Luan Qing Xiao nodded, “Alright, pay attention to your safety.”
After Luan Qing Xiao and Nie Zhen'er left Feng Xue Mountain, she released Little Cutie.
Little Cutie finally calmed down after spending the entire night in Luan Qing Xiao's space.
As soon as Little Cutie saw Luan Qing Xiao, she immediately complained.
“Mistress, that is the enemy who killed my mother.
Why won't you let me take revenge?”
Luan Qing Xiao said, “If you want to take revenge, you have to look at your own cultivation base first.
Your cultivation bases are realms apart.
You trying to kill him is just giving him a free kill.”
Nie Zhen'er knelt down and rubbed the top of Little Cutie’s head, “If the Mistress hadn't stopped you, you would have been killed by him already.”
Little Cutie whimmed in disappointment, “But I finally met him.
Where else would I go looking for that enemy in the future?”
Nie Zhen'er hugged him, “We’re from the same sect.
Once you head back to the Shang Qing Palace with us, you can meet him whenever you want.
Just don't be impulsive the next time you see him.”
Little Cutie thought for a while, “Although I can't kill him, I can hurt him.
Today I slashed the back of his neck.
Mistress and Master will definitely protect me, right?” He could make a few wounds on his body everyday.
As long as Luan Qing Xiao protected him, Ying Yuan Yu couldn't do anything to him.
Plus, it could also make him more uncomfortable than just killing him directly.
Little Cutie looked at Luan Qing Xiao eagerly.
Luan Qing Xiao nodded and said, “Right.”
“Oh, yeah! Mistress is the best!” Little Cutie kicked his short legs and wanted to be hugged by Luan Qing Xiao.
Nie Zhen'er brought him closer to Luan Qing Xiao's side.
Little Cutie immediately jumped to the ground obediently.
Nie Zhen'er couldn't help but smile at Luan Qing Xiao, while Luan Qing Xiao petted the top of her head, “Don’t baby him too much.”
“Zhen’er understands, Mistress.”
The Snowy Gale Secret Realm was so extremely large that the two still didn’t reach the end after walking for seven days.
On the last hour when the Snowy Gale Secret Realm was about to close, Luan Qing Xiao flew on her sword, holding onto Nie Zhen'er from behind, to check out the entire secret realm’s scenery.
When the time was up, a big hole suddenly appeared in the Snowy Gale Secret Realm.
All cultivators who didn’t belong to the realm were sucked into it by the big hole except those trapped in the Maze of Illusions.
Little Cutie saw Luan Qing Xiao and Nie Zhen'er about to be sucked away, yet he still showed no sign of movement himself.
He anxiously shouted, “Mistress, place me into your space!”
Luan Qing Xiao leaned over and stretched out her hand towards Little Cutie, and Little Cutie sprinted onto Luan Qing Xiao's hand.
With the flash of a white light, he entered the space.
Exiting the Snowy Gale Secret Realm, the air around them finally filled with qi.
Everyone had stayed in the secret realm for ten days and the spiritual power in their body was almost used.
Therefore, as soon as they came out, they sat cross-legged and absorbed the qi.
Since they were all absorbing the qi in the same place, the qi here will definitely not be enough.
Because Luan Qing Xiao had eaten the Fire Fruit, she had some excess spiritual power, which she used to take Nie Zhen'er on her sword to find a qi abundant valley and meditated there to restore her spiritual power.
Their place was quite some distance from Shang Qing Palace.
Luan Qing Xiao didn't get up until the sky had darkened.
“Zhen'er, you’ve worked hard.” Nie Zhen'er kept guard by her side while Luan Qing Xiao meditated.
Nie Zhen'er shook her head, causing her ponytail to swing side to side.
“No need to be so polite towards Zhen’er, Mistress.”
Luan Qing Xiao touched Nie Zhen'er's somewhat cold face, “Have a good rest when we return tonight.
Tomorrow, I’ll give you a day off to take Little Cutie out to have fun.”
To begin with, Nie Zhen'er had no companions of her similar age, so no matter where she went, she could only go by herself.
Now that she has Little Cutie, she won’t be as lonely when she’s busy.
“Thank you, Mistress.” Nie Zhen'er beamed.
Returning to Shang Qing Palace, Luan Qing Xiao dropped Nie Zhen'er off at Luscious Spring Hall.
“Go rest first, I need to stop by Flowing Dream Hall for a bit.”
Luan Qing Xiao didn't see Ying Yuan Yu when she came back.
Who knows if he was back yet?
As soon as Luan Qing Xiao arrived at Flowing Dream Hall, she saw Jing Meng Jun and Ying Yuan Yu who were currently outside the gates of Flowing Dream Hall.
Jing Meng Jun looked at the two spiritual tools in Ying Yuan Yu's hands and broke into a face-splitting grin.
“As expected from my good disciple.
Both of these spiritual tools are great, you won’t need to switch them out until after Primordial Yuan.”
“Palace Lord.” Luan Qing Xiao retracted her long sword and landed in front of them.
Ying Yuan Yu bowed his hands, “Luan Shi Bo.”
Jing Meng Jun patted Ying Yuan Yu on the shoulder, “I’ve heard Yuan Yu say how much you defend him in the Snowy Gale Secret Realm.”
“Don’t mention it.” Luan Qing Xiao accepted Jing Meng Jun's thanks without blinking.
Ying Yuan Yu was really scheming.
She hadn't helped him at all in the Snowy Gale Secret Realm, but he actually spoke kindly for her in front of Jing Meng Jun.
If the original owner was still there, she’s afraid that she would already be moved to tears.
Ying Yuan Yu secretly glanced at Luan Qing Xiao's face, a little dejected that he didn't see the expression he wanted on her face.
Luan Qing Xiao was too calm.
So calm that Ying Yuan Yu was starting to wonder if he really did receive a lot of care from her in the Snowy Gale Secret Realm.
“Yuan Yu, go back and rest.
You can come back to Flowing Dream Hall tomorrow afternoon.”
“Thank you, Master.
Master, Shi Bo, This Disciple will be excusing himself.”
After Ying Yuan Yu left, Jing Meng Jun strolled with Luan Qing Xiao into Flowing Dream Hall.
The candles in the Flowing Dream Hall were lit as Jing Meng Jun walked in, illuminating the icy hall with a warm light.
“Junior Sister Qing Xiao, my disciple isn’t too shabby, right?” Jing Meng Jun proudly asked once he sat down.
“Not bad.” Her lie came out smoothly.
“Presumably you also know that Yuan Yu found two spiritual weapons in the Snowy Gale Secret Realm.
Moreover, they are both suitable for him.”
“I know.” Luan Qing Xiao withdrew her gaze, cherishing her words like gold.
Even so, it failed to dispel Jing Meng Jun's interest in flaunting his disciple.
Jing Meng Jun had already begun to imagine the scene of Ying Yuan Yu breaking through to Golden Core.
Jing Meng Jun didn't hear her.
“Palace Lord.” Luan Qing Xiao slightly emphasized her words.
Jing Meng Jun waved with his hands around in joy.
Jing Meng Jun froze.
He shut his mouth and peered at Luan Qing Xiao with a smile, “Junior Sister, if you have anything to say, just say it.
No need to be polite with Senior Brother.”
Luan Qing Xiao glanced at him helplessly.
The relationship between the original owner and Jing Meng Jun used to be pretty decent.
However, after Jing Meng Jun became the palace lord of the Shang Qing Palace, the original owner never called him Senior Brother ever again.
Since Luan Qing Xiao already “accidentally” called Jing Meng Jun the wrong title, she simply stopped arguing with him and simply changed the way she addressed him.
“Senior Brother, during our trip to the Snowy Gale Secret Realm, Zhen'er and I also found a few decent spiritual weapons, some of which aren’t suitable for either of us.
Therefore, I planned to store them in the Spiritual Artifact Inventory of Shang Qing Palace.”
“Oh?” Jing Meng Jun was a little surprised, “If it's one or two, you can just take it and give it to anyone to gain their goodwill.
You don't need to put it in the inventory.”
“It’s not just one or two.” Luan Qing Xiao said.
“It seems Junior Sister’s trip has been quite fruitful.” Jing Meng Jun wasn’t too concerned about three or four spiritual weapons.
“If you want to put them away, then you can.
Senior Brother won’t need to worry about the Grand Competition’s awards in the next few years, ha ha ha– –”
Luan Qing Xiao smiled faintly, “Next few years? There’s more than enough for the next few decades.”
After speaking, Luan Qing Xiao took out ten spiritual weapons from her space.
A golden light suddenly shone in the Flowing Dream Hall.
The dazzling ray radiated from the ten spiritual weapons, making the laughter in Jing Meng Jun's mouth choke.
His small eyes popped wide open.
“This, this, this!” Jing Meng Jun pointed to the spiritual weapons piled up on the ground like a bargain sale, and stuttered to Luan Qing Xiao incredulously.
“Junior Sister, you found all these in the Snowy Gale Secret Realm??! !”
Luan Qing Xiao nodded, “Naturally.”
Jing Meng Jun fell silent.
He recalled that he had just proudly told Renjia how awesome Ying Yuan Yu was with the discovery of two spiritual weapons.
Yet in a blink of an eye, Luan Qing Xiao gave him ten of them!
This feeling was like Luan Qing Xiao had soundly slapped him in front of all the cultivators in the Shang Qing Palace, loudly.
An incredibly humiliating one at that.
Jing Meng Jun couldn't laugh anymore.
“Junior Sister ah.
You said you and your apprentice found these together, so why didn't you leave some for your disciple?” Jing Meng Jun probed cautiously.
Luan Qing Xiao answered, “I left her with three suitable ones, and I also kept a few of them myself.
All these here are all leftovers…
… By the way, four of them were found by my disciple Nie Zhen'er.
Senior Brother, don't forget to record them in Zhen'er’s name.”
Jing Meng Jun choked.
His disciple only found two, while Rennjia’s disciple found four, four!
“I won’t forget, how can I forget?”
Jing Meng Jun felt a little pain in his chest.
He clutched his head and placed his elbows on the low table.
Luan Qing Xiao saw it and stood up, “Since Senior Brother seems tired, I won't bother you any longer.”
Jing Meng Jun weakly replied, “Junior Sister, take care.”
Luan Qing Xiao walked out of Flowing Dream Hall.
She looked back at the dark hall where the candlelight was instantly extinguished, and said with a smirk.
“Show off your disciple with me?”
Returning to Luscious Spring Hall on her sword, Luan Qing Xiao didn't see Nie Zhen'er after entering the main hall.
Hearing movement in the back hall, she headed to the back hall to search for her.
Nie Zhen'er was actually soaking her body in the Snow Pond.
“Mistress, you’re back.” Nie Zhen'er swam over from a distance and touched the water on her face.
“I felt a little hot, so I decided to cool off in the Snow Pond.”
“Careful of getting sick, come out soon.” Luan Qing Xiao stood by the pool and said, lowering her head.
Nie Zhen'er smiled and stepped against the bottom of the pool to the place nearest to Luan Qing Xiao and stretched out her hand to Luan Qing Xiao.
Her slender arm glowed like an ice jade, but her five fingertips were light pink.
Luan Qing Xiao leaned over and held her hand.
Nie Zhen'er revealed a mischievous smile on her face before yanking hard.
Luan Qing Xiao couldn't keep her balance and fell into the Snow Pond.
The splashing water instantly turned into ice the moment it fell onto the ground.
“Zhen'er, how can you be this naughty?” Luan Qing Xiao's clothes were mostly wet, and her wet plastered against her body.
She was reluctant to blame Nie Zhen'er and could only sigh helplessly.
“Mistress also ate the Fire Fruit, so you definitely feel hot too.
Since you feel hot, why not soak in the Snow Pond with Zhen'er?” Nie Zhen'er said with a lovely smile.
Luan Qing Xiao bopped the tip of her nose, “Zhen'er has a point.
Mistress will not punish you this time.”
Nie Zhen'er's eyes widened in surprise, “Mistress wanted to punish Zhen'er just now?”
She was actually looking forward to it.
If Mistress punishes her to reflect in the back mountain again, wouldn't she be able to re-experience the feeling of sleeping in her arms?
“Zhen’er, what are you looking forward to?” Luan Qing Xiao couldn't keep up with her little disciple's bizarre thinking.
This happy and looking forward to being punished by her?
Nie Zhen'er turned around in embarrassment, “Mistress, Zhen'er wasn't expecting anything.
You must have read me wrong.” If Mistress knew her thoughts, she would be shocked.
But at that time, Mistress was afraid that she would be cold, so she would head to the back mountain to warm herself at night.
Now that she has eaten the Fire Fruit, she is no longer afraid of the cold.
Even if the Mistress punishes her, she guessed that she won’t accompany her again.
Then wouldn't she have to sleep in the dark cave by herself?
“Mistress, Zhen'er was wrong just now.
In the future, Zhen'er will definitely be obedient.” Nie Zhen'er quickly admitted her mistake after thinking it through.
