On this kind of a night, there would always be too many sorrows–for example, Qin Kaiyi finally didn’t feel pain and woke up, only to find rain falling from the sky.
He lay on his back on the ground, letting the slight rain fall on his forehead, then sighed faintly.
“Qin Shi.” Right on time, Yan Gu’s voice sounded. “I have a bad feeling.”
“What’s wrong?” Qin Kaiyi’s voice was still very soft, and the weakness caused by the severe pain just now did not recede.
“… After you fainted, guess who I saw?” Yan Gu’s tone sounded very heavy.
“Who?” Qin Kaiyi stumbled up from the ground and wiped his face with his hand. “You saw Hei Bai Wu Chang?” (T/N: two deities, one short, one tall, chained together at the ankle. They reward the good and punish the bad).
“…” Yan Gu was speechless for a while, and then said, “More horrible than that.”
“Ah?” Qin Kaiyi was startled. “How horrible is it?”
“I saw Shen Feixiao and Zi Yangpei together.” Yan Gu’s voice was cool.
“… Is your ‘together’ and the one I think of when I think ‘together’ the same ‘together’?” Qin Kaiyi asked obscurely.
“What do you mean?” Yan Gu didn’t quite understand Qin Kaiyi’s words.
“… I’ll ask one thing.” Qin Kaiyi supported his chin and said in a deep tone, “Is my son on the top or on the bottom?”
“…” Yan Gu suddenly had the misperception that Qin Kaiyi’s brain was already broken…
“Okay okay, I’m just kidding.” Looking at Yan Gu’s face looking like he was eating stool, Qin Kaiyi laughed loudly, and then waved his hands after chuckling, “They should have been together long ago.”
In the novel, Zi Yangpei was originally the brother-in-law of Shen Feixiao, and the plot which was distorted because of him finally corrected.
“You already knew?” Yan Gu looked at Qin Kaiyi doubtfully.
“I didn’t know.” The sprinkling of spring rainfall gradually wet Qin Kaiyi’s clothes. He looked up at the hazy sky and sighed, “My son has his own ideas now that he’s grown up, ai, this sorrow from marrying off a daughter, what’s going on?”
“There is that kind of sorrow because there is a pit in your head,” Yan Gu said coldly, “You don’t want to think about what to do next? The poisonous insect in your golden core obviously is related to Zi Yangpei, and Shen Feixiao is colluding with him… I think your life is in danger.”
“Brother Yan Gu, don’t forget who caused me to include that insect in my golden core.” Qin Kaiyi gritted his teeth. “Would it kill you to be reliable one time?”
“… cough cough, Yan Gu coughed twice and didn’t know what to say. He was indeed responsible for this matter.
“I suddenly had an idea.” Standing up from the ground, Qin Kaiyi’s whole body was embarrassingly dirty, but he didn’t care. Without making an immortal hand seal, he instead walked back slowly. “Wu… if Qing Xuzi knew that I was possessed, instead of me betraying the Lingshan Sect voluntarily, would he be a little bit happy? “
“What?” Yan Gu hollered once he heard these words: “You want to betray the Lingshan Sect?”
“Yeah, didn’t I tell you?” Touching his nose, Qin Kaiyi felt itchy, and sneezed involuntarily.
“…” Yan Gu expressed that he couldn’t understand Qin Kaiyi’s brain circuitry at all: “Why do you want to betray Qing Xuzi??”
“Because on this kind of a night, there is always too much sorrow.” Qin Kaiyi’s logic had already been eaten by a dog.
After Yan Gu heard this, he decided to shut up. Qin Kaiyi was clearly not in a normal condition now…
Then Qin Kaiyi swayed back to his dòngfu slowly. He could approximately guess what Shen Feixiao wanted to do. In fact, what Shen Feixiao wanted to do was quite simple–he wanted to step on Qin Shi, this shixiong of his, completely.
What would happen if a demonic cultivator were to be discovered in a righteous cultivation world? If the demonic cultivator once held a position even higher than head disciple, then what? And what if the demonic cultivator disappeared inexplicably for half a year, and his shifu was in seclusion?
Even his toes could think of the answer to these questions.
Possession–what a good excuse. Qin Kaiyi thought this and couldn’t resist looking at the sky and laughing. Shen Feixiao helped him solve a big problem. Compared with betrayal by his beloved disciple, possession of his beloved disciple seemed to be less sorrowful. There would be more of a kind of anger… anger that would want for revenge.
“Fuck me, I found out that I was too great,” Qin Kaiyi lamented, “sacrificing myself like this, I’m practically Lei Feng… what do you think Yan Gu?” (T/N: Lei Feng–Communist revolution era figure).
“Who is Lei Feng?” Yan Gu had no expression.
“Fuck, I also don’t know.” Qin Kaiyi suddenly calmed down with his hand covering his face. Mother’s eggs (T/N: curse), he should have been happy. Everything had been solved. Shouldn’t he be… happy?
“Qin Shi… what on earth do you want to do?” Yan Gu sighed heavily, and finally quieted down, leaving Qin Kaiyi sitting alone in the dòngfu.
The next day was like the calm before the storm. Shen Feixiao and Zi Yangpei didn’t come to bother Qin Kaiyi again, and even Liu Ling’er didn’t show up again. Qin Kaiyi didn’t know Liu Ling’er’s reason, and just thought that this girl was completely reduced to Shen Feixiao’s harem member. After sighing a few times, he began to fervently cultivate.
Well, during this time, Qin Kaiyi did not know what to do except cultivate.
This calm continued until a sunny afternoon. Qin Kaiyi took an apple and gnawed it as usual, studying the insect in his dantian as he chewed. Conclusion–without dismantling his golden core, he estimated that there was no chance of taking that thing out in this life.
Zi Yangpei, this dude, was really vicious…… whenever he thought of this matter, Qin Kaiyi would silently spurn that perverted guy. He should have long known that that guy was not easy to provoke.
While Qin Kaiyi was thinking about these messy things, a soft voice suddenly sounded outside the door. When Qin Kaiyi heard it, he realized it was Liu Ling’er, who hadn’t appeared in a long time.
“Shixiong? Shixiong?” Liu Ling’er’s voice was inexplicably cautious. She stood outside the dòngfu and yelled for Qin Kaiyi again and again, as if she was afraid he was not there.
“Ling’er?” Qin Kaiyi froze, then said, “What’s wrong with you?”
“Shixiong, I have some things I want to find you for, you… come out first?” Liu Ling’er’s tone revealed a tenseness.
“Don’t go!!” Before Qin Kaiyi could open his mouth, Yan Gu’s voice rang out in his sea of knowledge: “There are a lot of people outside, it seems Liu Ling’er has bad intentions!”
“If there are bad intentions, then how can I not go out.” Qin Kaiyi smiled bitterly–he had been waiting for those bad intentions, but even so, he still did not expect him and Liu Ling’er to finally reach this step.
“I know, I know, don’t be nervous, I won’t die.” Probably. Qin Kaiyi appeased Yan Gu. In fact, he didn’t know whether or not he would die, but according to the system’s special attitude (T/N: lit.: urine quality; Northeastern China dialect meaning you have a really surprising/special kind of attitude/personality), for the sake of the future plot it wouldn’t just let him hang here… right?
With this thought, Qin Kaiyi’s heart was a little calmer. He took a deep breath, stroked the bracelet that Qing Xuzi gave him, and then went out calmly.
As a result, it turned out that Yan Gu’s words were correct, and the people outside really didn’t have good intentions.
“Ling’er, what is everyone doing?” Qin Kaiyi’s tone was calm when he looked at the people who surrounded his dòngfu.
“Don’t call me Ling’er, you possessing demonic cultivator!!!” The girl who had grown into an adult had such a fascinating bearing even when she was angry. Liu Linger’s eyes were red, staring angrily at Qin Kaiyi: “You are not my shixiong! Give me back my shixiong!”
“… why do you say this?” Sighing out a breath, Qin Kaiyi suppressed the unhappiness in his heart and tried to calm down his mood. “Who taught you to say such nonsense?”
“Don’t talk nonsense with him, this kind of demonic cultivator should be punished by all!” It wasn’t clear who said this among the crowd surrounding Qin Kaiyi. This remark caused the crowd that could originally be considered peaceful to become like boiling water, buzzing with noise and rancor. Of course, what they were discussing could only be Qin Kaiyi, this “possessing” demonic cultivator.
In fact, Qin Kaiyi wanted to say a lot, but he couldn’t say anything. What was there to say? He was indeed not Qin Shi, and he was definitely demonically cultivating. To a certain extent, wasn’t he just someone possessing another body and demonically cultivating? But the young girl in front of him with tears in her eyes somehow made Qin Kaiyi’s solid resolution have a bit of fretfulness. He didn’t want to imagine how Qing Xuzi would react upon hearing this news.
“Everyone don’t quarrel.” Shen Feixiao slowly walked out from behind Liu Ling’er. He stared at Qin Kaiyi’s face with no special expression: “Ling’er, your statement that you saw him demonically cultivating that day, is it true? “
“It’s true, shidi, how can you not believe me!” Liu Ling’er heard Shen Feixiao seemingly questioning her, and immediately became anxious. The rims of her eyes which held wetness began to drip with tears.
“It’s not that I don’t believe you,” Shen Feixiao said softly, “but I’m afraid… to wrongly blame shixiong ah, that’s right, beloved, shixiong.” (T/N: strange comma placement intentional)
These words were obviously refuting on his behalf, but inexplicably made Qin Kaiyi’s goosebumps rise. He looked at Shen Feixiao, who had no particular expression, and clenched his teeth secretly. He then showed a cold smile: “I am a demonic cultivator, how about it. Just relying on you lot, you don’t have the qualifications to apprehend me. “
As soon as this remark came out, it completely confirmed Liu Ling’er’s suspicion. Shen Feixiao didn’t seem to expect that Qin Kaiyi could be so brainless, and there was a trace of surprise in his eyes.
“Hahahahaha, your master Qing Xuzi is now in retreat. There are only you few small shrimps and fish left, and you still want to stop me?” When saying this, Qin Kaiyi was really full of bloody tears… he didn’t think he’d have the opportunity to give such a brainless villain’s declaration.
“Then I will meet with my shixiong,” Shen Feixiao expressionlessly declared war with Qin Kaiyi.
“…” At this moment, Qin Kaiyi wanted to slap his own mouth.
