Nie Zhen'er seemed to have a dream.
When she woke up, her head was dizzy.
As she opened her eyes in a daze, she found herself lying in Luan Qing Xiao's embrace.

    “Mistress,” Nie Zhen'er buried her face in Luan Qing Xiao's robe, “I still want to sleep~”

    Luan Qing Xiao stroked her long black hair, “What a lazy pig, you already slept the entire night.”

    “Mistress, I think I had a dream.” Following that, she winked and peered at Luan Qing Xiao mischievously.

    “What dream?” Luan Qing Xiao asked with a smile.

    “I dreamed that Mistress and I went to San Wen Mountain and recognized a younger brother.
When I went out with my younger brother, we met a bad guy.
And then the bad guy made us unconscious.” Nie Zhen'er sat up from Luan Qing Xiao's arms.
“How come the more I say it, the more I think it's true?”

    Her almond eyes glanced around, this wasn’t the furnishings of the Shang Qing Palace’s courtyard.

    “Mistress! I was really knocked out by the bad guy?!” Nie Zhen'er exclaimed in surprise.

    Luan Qing Xiao tapped her forehead, “Little fool, remembering such an important event as a dream.”

    “By the way, where did you guys faint? When I rescued you and Xiao Quan, I didn't see Little Cutie.”

    Nie Zhen'er freaked out, “Little Cutie will be fine, right?” She quickly communicated with Little Cutie in her mind.
Fortunately, Little Cutie responded.

    “Boohooho, Master, where are you and Xiao Quan? How come I am left alone in the maze after a nap? Little Cutie is extremely afraid, wa wa wa.”

    “Little Cutie, don't move around.
I'm going to find you right away!”

    “Mistress, Little Cutie is still in the Underground Maze.” Right now, Nie Zhen'er couldn’t care less about Luan Qing Xiao's warm embrace.
She got up from her embrace, “We have to go find the Mountain Lord, the Underground Maze needs a key to enter.”

    Luan Qing Xiao said, “Let's go, Mountain Lord Wen, his wife and Xiao Quan are in the Wen Xin Hall right now.”

    Internally, she wondered: How did the two female Demonic cultivators enter the Underground Maze? Did they steal the key?

    When Luan Qing Xiao brought Nie Zhen'er to Wen Xin Hall, Xiao Quan was also awake.
He  was currently crying in Shang Chen Qing’s arms.

    Seeing Luan Qing Xiao and Nie Zhen'er walking in, Shang Jin Quan quickly wiped away his tears and called aggrieved.
“Elder Luan, Elder Sister.”

    Luan Qing Xiao introduced them to Nie Zhen'er, “This is Mountain Lord Wen and this is his wife.

    Nie Zhen'er greeted the two of them before quickly going to check on Shang Jin Quan, “Xiao Quan, are you alright now? How come you’re crying?”

    Shang Jin Quan's eyes were full of tears as he sobbed, “Elder Sister, everything happened because I didn't properly cultivate normally.
As a man, I couldn't protect you.
In the future, I will cultivate harder in order to prevent bad guys from hurting you.”

    Nie Zhen'er comforted, “Elder sisters should also be protecting their younger brothers.
I used to think that my cultivation conditions weren’t good and was always not diligent in my cultivation.
In the future, we siblings will work hard together.”

    “Speaking of which, Xiao Quan, Little Cutie is still in the Underground Maze.
I came here to ask you for the key to pick up Little Cutie.”

    Shang Chen Qing asked curiously, “Who is Little Cutie?”

    “Mother,  Little Cutie is Elder Sister's spiritual pet.
He can become a little toddler and even talk!” Shang Jin Quan proclaimed.

    “Does Xiao Quan also want a spiritual pet too?” Shang Chen Qing rubbed the top of Jin Quan's hair and asked.

    Shang Jin Quan hugged Shang Chen Qing's waist and coquettishly answered, “I do! There won’t be anyone to play with me after Elder Sister returns to Shang Qing Palace.
If I were to have a spiritual pet, I wouldn't be lonely.”

    “As long as you cultivate hard, Mother will find you a spiritual pet that can transform and talk.”

    “Really?” Shang Jin Quan's eyes lit up.

    Nie Zhen'er watched their mother-child interaction enviously.
Luan Qing Xiao noticed her eyes and smiled apologetically at Wen Huai Wen before calling out to Nie Zhen'er, “Come here to Mistress’ side.”

    Nie Zhen'er walked over to Luan Qing Xiao's side in confusion, “Mistress, what's the matter?”

    “Mistress will pamper you, no need to envy Xiao Quan.”

    Nie Zhen'er glanced at Luan Qing Xiao in surprise as her cheeks gradually warmed up.
She could care less about how there were other people around and couldn't resist holding Luan Qing Xiao, “Mistress, Mistress.” She really really liked Mistress.

    【Ding! The female lead's favorability value has risen to 80%! Good job, Host dada! It’s going to be full soon~】

    Because Wen Huai Wen wanted to talk to Luan Qing Xiao, he let Shang Chen Qing take Nie Zhen'er and Shang Jin Quan to the Underground Maze to find Little Cutie.

    With Shang Chen Qing, Luan Qing Xiao didn't need to worry about Nie Zhen'er's safety.
She can rest assured while discussing with Wen Huai Wen.

    “Mountain Lord Wen, how many keys are there for the Underground Maze? Is there any other way to get in?”

    Wen Huai Wen frowned, “The Underground Maze can only be entered through with the key.
There were originally three sets of keys to it.
After my father’s life was exhausted, one went missing.
At that time, I was shouldering such a sudden and heavy burden, so I didn’t have the energy to tend to this trivial matter.
Now it seems that the key must have been stolen by the Demonic Path.”

    “It has been more than ten years since the key was stolen.
Why did the Demonic Path suddenly appear in the Underground Maze today? What is their purpose?…
Is it related to the Inter-Sect Grand Competition this time?


    “The Demonic Dao even had people infiltrating in Qiu Luo Zong.
Who knows if the other sects also have people from the Demonic Path? The disciples in this year’s Inter-Sect Grand Competition are the beacons of all the Righteous Path’s sects.
There must be no mishaps.”

    As long as something happens to these disciples, the Righteous Dao will be greatly impacted.
By that time, the Demonic Dao will definitely take advantage of it.
Whether it is snatching the Righteous sects’ disciples to raise as furnaces, harvesting yin to replenish the yang, or collecting yang to replenish yin, these are all catastrophic for the Righteous Dao.

    On the other side, Ying Yuan Yu, who was abducted by Yin Yin, woke up and found himself in a red cloud.

    After fully waking up, he realized it wasn’t a red cloud, but a red gauze tent, layered on top of each other like a cloud.

    He sat up, clutching his forehead, his expression uncertain.

    He clearly remembered that he was hiding on the huge tree outside Qiu Luo Zong’s courtyard.
How did he suddenly arrive at this place?

    “You’re awake?” A soft and charming voice suddenly sounded outside the tent.

    Ying Yuan Yu only felt a tremor in his heart as he saw a woman with enchanting temperament lifted the layers of veil and walked in.
She sat on the bed and put her arms around him, “I was so worried since Lang Jun didn't wake up for a long time~”

    “You are?” Ying Yuan Yu was sure that he didn't know her.
The uproar in his heart disappeared, allowing his head to calm down.

    “Lang Jun actually forgot about Yin Yin, Yin Yin is so sad~” Yin Yin's head drooped slightly and her crystal teardrops fell on Ying Yuan Yu's clothes.

    Ying Yuan Yu looked at her vigilantly.
His heart still didn’t soften at all, seeing this woman who claimed to be Yin Yin crying.

    After crying for a while, Yin Yin realized that her tears had no effect on Yuan Yu and stopped her sobbing.
Looking at Ying Yuan Yu with red eyes, she said, “Once Lang Jun used my body, he’s pretending to not recognize me.
What can I do? Lang Jun, look at Yin Yin, look at Yin Yin's face, look at Yin Yin's eyes… …”

    As Yin Yin's voice became lighter and lighter, Ying Yuan Yu couldn't help staring at Yin Yin's eyes.
Inside those eyes were sorrow, love, hate and sweetness from infatuation and Nie Zhen'er's face.


    “Lang Jun, I am Zhen'er.”
