After finishing his pointless talk with Zi Yangpei, Qin Kaiyi realized that the golden lion had suddenly slowed down its absorption of his demonic qi. His heart skipped a beat, and before he could say anything, he heard Zi Yangpei coldly say: “Let’s leave together.” As he said this, his right hand reached for Tang Shayun, who was still kneeling and whimpering, and grabbed her collar. His left hand threw Shen Feixiao into Qin Kaiyi’s arms.
At the moment when these actions happened, the chair that Qin Kaiyi was sitting on suddenly moved to the right, revealing a hole that was originally blocked by the chair. Zi Yangpei didn’t continue his small talk anymore, and grabbed Tang Shayun to enter the hole first.
Qin Kaiyi looked at the Shen Feixiao in his embrace, and saw that his expression had become extremely ugly. Suddenly he felt a sadness in his heart that was difficult to explain. He sighed and reached out to touch Shen Feixiao’s head: “Don’t be sad, you will be stronger than him in the future. “
“…” Shen Feixiao still said nothing, but his eyes told Qin Kaiyi of his determination.
Without saying anything more, Qin Kaiyi just held Shen Feixiao and followed behind Zi Yangpei.
For a long time after his mother died, Shen Feixiao thought that his future life would always be difficult–he was bullied by his stepmother and half-siblings, scorned by his family’s servants, and had only cold leftovers to eat. Whether in the spring, summer, autumn, or winter, he always slept under a thin single sheet on a hard bed.
He knew he hated this kind of life, but he didn’t have the power to change it. How could a thin and weak child who was only a few years old escape from the torment of life?
When the change approached him, Shen Feixiao almost didn’t dare to believe it. He looked at the sagelike old man with the air of an immortal in front of him silently stretching out his hand. The crowd around him looked on with disdain and whispered harshly.
“That little bastard still wants to immortally cultivate? He should keep dreaming! Even my son hasn’t been selected, but someone like him?! Hmph!” “It’s just a waste of time. That immortal master would be better off using this bit of time to come to my family to take a look.” □’s son can cultivate to immortality? Aiyo… don’t laugh and send him away. “
Shen Feixiao listened to these voices, and felt that there was a fire burning in his chest. He fiercely gritted his teeth, resisting the urge to roar… This wasn’t the right time yet, he must endure, he must endure!
The immortal master who pinched his frame looked up at him, and then said something to him that changed his life: “Medium spirit roots, also not bad, go back with me, next one.”
Shen Feixiao was dumbfounded when he heard this sentence, and the phrase “go back with me, go back with me” echoed in his ears over and over. He felt something wet leak out from the rims of his eyes.
In fact, in many cases, what changes a person’s life is just one sentence.
“Shen Feixiao? Shen Feixiao?” Qin Kaiyi looked at Shen Feixiao, who had buried his head in Qin Kaiyi’s neck, and whispered, “What’s wrong with you?”
“Nothing.” Shen Feixiao’s voice came out stuffy.
“Uncomfortable?” Qin Kaiyi was worried. He patted Shen Feixiao’s back: “It’s okay, don’t be afraid.”
“En,” Shen Feixiao said through gritted teeth.
Zi Yangpei, walking in front, turned and saw the interaction between Qin Kaiyi and Shen Feixiao. “Yo, it’s really a scene of the benevolent father and filial son.” He mocked: “You love your son this much?” (T/N: lit.: your heart hurts this much for your son?)
“You!” Not expecting Zi Yangpei to directly say this, Qin Kaiyi said angrily: “Just walk on the path, be careful not to sprain an ankle.”
“Haha, thank you for your concern.” Zi Yangpei’s expression was crafty: “Do you know how to cross the path ahead?”
“How would I know.” Qin Kaiyi glanced at the forked road in front of him and said with dissatisfaction: “Weren’t you leading the way?”
“Yeah.” Zi Yangpei looked innocent: “When there’s only one way forward of course it’s me who leads, but now it’s bifurcated.”
“…” Qin Kaiyi was speechless.
“Hurry and ask Yan Gu how to go.” Zi Yangpei said directly: “Also tell him that if he dares to carelessly pick a path, I will give Xue Xian’s body to the dogs to eat.”
“… En.” Qin Kaiyi responded. He first glanced at Shen Feixiao who was still in his embrace and was stiff all over. A little bit worried about whether Shen Feixiao believed Zi Yangpei’s words, he only whispered: “Don’t listen to that man talking nonsense, he has mental problems.”
“What mental problems do I have?” Zi Yangpei’s hearing was clearly good.
“Who said you have mental problems.” Qin Kaiyi looked innocent.
“…” Zi Yangpei was speechless. He didn’t expect Qin Kaiyi to be so fair and aboveboard, so out in the open about playing stupid.
“Yan Gu, Yan Gu.” Qin Kaiyi waited for a while before he heard Yan Gu’s response in his sea of knowledge.
“I’m dead, don’t call me.” That face was still the same as Qin Kaiyi’s, but now it was full of resentment.
“Oh, you have heard what Zi Yangpei said.” Qin Kaiyi said cautiously: “Do you have anything to say?”
“… what do you think I can say?” Yan Gu managed to squeeze a sentence out from the gaps between his teeth.
“Well, for example, how to walk ahead, what way to go.” Qin Kaiyi inexplicably felt a bit guilty.
“… Turn right turn right then turn right.” Yan Gu looked dead.
“… Isn’t that a circle?” Qin Kaiyi was like 囧.
“Qin Shi!!! Zi Yangpei is going to get your shizu’s treasures, do you still want me to show him the way?? You are his descendant and yet lack backbone to this extent? I, Yan Gu, was wrong about you!!” Yan Gu exploded!
“I truly don’t have any guts, but at least I wasn’t like a certain someone who hid so quickly.” Qin Kaiyi whispered.
“You!!!” Yan Gu’s expression seemed as if he would be angered to death by Qin Kaiyi.
“Hurry up, or else he will kill me and then wear you on his face, what do you think would happen then?” Qin Kaiyi used reason and reality to move Yan Gu: “Besides, I will work hard not to let Zi Yangpei get the Rain-Soaked Bell. “
“… You actually know about the Rain-Soaked Bell?” Yan Gu was a little surprised: “You know the Rain-Soaked Bell but don’t know how to get to it?”
“… Is there necessarily a connection between the two?” Qin Kaiyi held his own forehead.
“It doesn’t seem so oh…” Yan Gu looked like an idiot.
“…” Qin Kaiyi suddenly felt that Yan Gu was also infected by Zi Yangpei.
“Okay, go to the right.” Seeming as if he had come to terms with something, Yan Gu shouted: “Even if I take you there, none of you think about getting the Rain-Soaked Bell.”
“Oh.” Qin Kaiyi responded dryly.
Qin Kaiyi was still a bit worried about whether Yan Gu would give nonsense directions, but later it turned out that Qin Kaiyi had gauged the heart of a gentleman with his own mean measure… Yan Gu brought them along the right path, and this path actually led to the location where the Rain-Soaked Bell was kept.
Although Qin Kaiyi knew that the Rain-Soaked Bell was placed in the center of lava, when he saw this scene, he was still shocked.
They were in front of a vast main hall, atop which stood an upright stone of about one square meter. A cyan gauze cloth swam above the stone pillar, like a fish wading in midair. The bottom of the stone pillar was covered by fiery magma, with only about one chi (T/N: ⅓ a meter) of pavement leading to the stone’s top.
Qin Kaiyi already put Shen Feixiao on the ground. He looked up at the Rain-Soaked Bell and suddenly understood why someone like Zi Yangpei would also want to have this magic weapon.
“This, this is the Rain-Soaked Bell?” The miserable-looking Tang Shayun stared at the magic weapon not far away from her with tears in her eyes, and there was only one idea in her mind–she must get this magic weapon, and as long as she got it, she believed she could definitely become the protagonist of this book!
Perhaps Tang Shayun’s idea was not wrong to some extent; such a treasure could only be obtained by the protagonist.
Although Qin Kaiyi felt that the Rain-Soaked Bell was indeed beautiful, he still had clarity in his heart. He knew how difficult it was to win the Rain-Soaked Bell from Zi Yangpei’s hands.
And he didn’t know why but… he had a bad feeling about this situation right now.
“Ah, if one falls into the magma… I don’t know if he could survive?” Smiling at the Rain-Soaked Bell in the distance, Zi Yangpei turned and said to Qin Kaiyi: “What do you think?”
“… What do you mean?” Qin Kaiyi’s bad hunch rose the surface.
“I don’t know, so… you can try it for me.” Zi Yangpei was still grinning, but his smile made Qin Kaiyi cold all over, and he took a deep breath: “Brother Zi Yang, don’t joke, how could a nameless foot soldier like me pass Xue Xian shizu’s formation. “
“I didn’t want you to pass.” Zi Yangpei looked at Qin Kaiyi seriously: “I only want you to go and see how this formation is launched.”
Having spoken thusly, Zi Yangpei’s meaning was already very obvious–he wanted to send Qin Kaiyi to his death.
“What if I disagree,” Qin Kaiyi’s voice was hoarse; he didn’t want to die.
“Disagree?” Zi Yangpei’s eyes were full of mockery: “Are you qualified to disagree?”
“…” Qin Kaiyi gritted his teeth without saying a word.
“Don’t you love your son a lot?” Still using the same tone of voice, Zi Yangpei walked slowly to the Shen Feixiao standing next to Qin Kaiyi, squatting down with a smile on his face and looking at him with an ugly expression: “If you don’t go… I will let your son go, how about it?”
Worthy of being Zi Yangpei. Qin Kaiyi smiled bitterly. No matter what he chose, he would meet death. Go to get the Rain-Soaked Bell? He didn’t have the confidence to crack Xue Xian’s formation. Refuse to get it? If something went wrong with Shen Feixiao, what was waiting for him was death by system.
There really was no choice. Qin Kaiyi sighed heavily and reached out again to pet Shen Feixiao’s head: “If I’m no longer here, take care of yourself.”
“… Do not go.” Shen Feixiao tightly grabbed the corner of Qin Kaiyi’s robe. He didn’t know what to say to Qin Kaiyi, and could only spit out those three words from his mouth.
“It’s okay.” Qin Kaiyi gave a soothing smile, and then stepped on that narrow path without turning back.
… He would never expose the trembling of his legs, *crying noises*… he didn’t want to be a hero… *crying noises* … he just wanted to go home, ah ah ah, Zi Yangpei, you split personality disorder madman!!
