In fact, Qin Kaiyi had never forgotten what Yan Gu once said. Yan Gu had said, “I am just a dog of the Hua Lian Sect.” From this sentence, it was obvious that the relationship between Yan Gu and the Hua Lian Sect, and even between him and Ziyang Pei, was not shallow.
However, because every time he mentioned Ziyang Pei Yan Gu’s expression would become ugly, Qin Kaiyi didn’t continue to try to make Yan Gu unhappy. He rarely mentioned the name Ziyang Pei in front of Yan Gu.
But just because he didn’t go to find trouble, that didn’t mean trouble wouldn’t come to him. Qin Kaiyi looked at Ziyang’s somber face, hesitated for a while, and still called Yan Gu in the sea of knowledge: “Yan Gu, are you there? Ziyang Pei said he had something to tell you?”
There was no answer. The Yan Gu who would originally appear with one call seemed to leave no tracks. Qin Kaiyi helplessly found this out after a few yells—if Yan Gu did not appear on his own, he really had no way to grab this guy.
Ziyang Pei seemed to know of Qin Kaiyi’s helplessness, and said with a sneer: “Yan Gu, your unwillingness to come out at this time, don’t regret it.” Then he turned around and left, leaving Qin Kaiyi alone, puzzled.
After Ziyang Pei left, Qin Kaiyi always felt that there was something that was not quite right. When he concentrated and thought about it, cold sweat formed… How could he forget such an important thing? In the novel, ten years after Qin Shi left the Lingshan Sect, the Lingshan Sect suffered a siege from those of the demonic path. Shen Feixiao led the disciples to protect the Lingshan Sect. Since then, his position in the Lingshan Sect skyrocketed, and he completely replaced Qin Shi’s position in Qing Xuzi’s heart.
However, the reason for Qin Kaiyi’s cold sweat was that he was the initiator of this siege of the Lingshan Sect.
According to the plot in the novel, the Qin Shi who had qi deviation hated Shen Feixiao to the extreme. Not only did he kill innumerable shixiong and shidi from the same sect, he also tried to threaten Shen Feixiao with Liu Ling’er’s life–the result was, of course, tragic. Shen Feixiao, with the protagonist’s aura, spared no effort to beat the smug Qin Shi, such that he escaped with serious injuries.
Qin Kaiyi felt dizzy when he thought of this. He had been in this world for so long… and he hadn’t killed a person yet. If the system really wanted him to do those things, he really didn’t know if he could harden his heart and give up his bottom line for the sake of return points.
Although Qin Kaiyi still regarded those other disciples who had no sense of existence as NPCs, from deep in his heart a weak voice sounded–you absolutely cannot kill, if you kill… you really cannot go back.
“Yan Gu, are you alive? Ziyang Pei has left, don’t hide.” The more he thought, the worse his mood became. He called for Yan Gu in his sea of knowledge in an out-of-sorts tone, until finally he saw a ball of flames appearing, which slowly formed into a person’s figure.
“He actually didn’t die? He didn’t die????” Yan Gu’s voice was full of inexplicable panic: “Why didn’t he die?”
“Who didn’t die?” Qin Kaiyi looked at Yan Gu, baffled.
“… Ziyang Shi… How could Ziyang Shi not die…” Qin Kaiyi could even see the cold sweat on Yan Gu’s forehead, as if he had seen some kind of monster.
“What do you mean? Oh right, Yan Gu, do you know Ziyang Shishi?” Qin Kaiyi suddenly thought of something. He asked doubtfully; this changed plot made him feel very strange.
“Zi Yang Shishi? How do you know Zi Yangpei’s little sister?” Yan Gu looked at Qin Kaiyi suspiciously.
“… She really exists,” he whispered softly. The stone hanging in Qin Kaiyi’s heart fell to the ground. He had thought the plot changed.
“Of course she exists.” Yan Gu glanced at Qin Kaiyi and continued to harp on: “But how can Ziyang Shi live… he should have died early.”
“Died? What do you mean?” Qin Kaiyi looked at Yan Gu strangely: “Why is your reaction so extreme.”
“A person who has the godly poisonous insect can still live… what method did Ziyang Pei come up with to save him…” Yan Gu’s tone was extremely difficult: “According to my calculations, he should have died six years ago… “
Qin Kaiyi didn’t know what Yan Gu was entangled about. He only knew that the Hua Lian Sect in the novel did not have a leader. In order to emphasize the supremacy of Ziyang Pei, he seemed to have just written a sentence saying that the leader was dead and skipped it. So now he didn’t understand what Yan Gu was worried about, but Qin Kaiyi felt vaguely… that the power of the butterfly effect had exceeded his imagination.
With a heavy heart, Qin Kaiyi felt like he had lost his way on the road of life–okay ba, the truth was that Ziyang Pei that son of a b*tch had casually left him here, causing him to get lost, mother’s eggs, how come all these rooms look exactly the same ah. There weren’t even any ghosts to be seen around here, how could he ask for directions!!!
After going in several circles and coming to the same place, Qin Kaiyi gave up completely. He sat his butt on the ground and, without regard for his image, pulled out an apple from the storage ring. He crunched and murmured: “Yan Wu, hah duh en geduh (Yan Gu, how do I get there).”
“…” Yan Gu wanted to cover his eyes and pretend not to see anything, but he still endured, took a deep breath, and said, “Do you have a paper crane to deliver messages? Deliver one to Ziyang Pei. There is a formation here, without him bringing you don’t think of leaving in this lifetime. “
“…” Qin Kaiyi supported his forehead. He just knew that Ziyang Pei so straightforwardly walking away was a problem. Was it possible for such a petty guy to not leave a last move? (T/N: 留后手, basically leave yourself another method).
Helpless, Qin Kaiyi had to pull out a paper crane out, attach his own demonic qi, and send the paper crane to Ziyang Pei.
Again waiting a few more hours, after Qin Kaiyi ate up all the apples he had brought, Ziyang Pei who had received the paper crane slowly arrived. He looked at Qin Kaiyi sitting on the ground like a hoodlum, and a corner of his mouth twitched. “Can’t you pay attention to your image?”
“What’s the use of paying attention to my image, there are no sisters here,” Qin Kaiyi said indifferently.
“Let’s go.” As if he had had enough of Qin Kaiyi’s behavior, Ziyang Pei didn’t speak any more, and led Qin Kaiyi out. (T/N: 拿秦开奕没有办法 = take it as he didn’t have a method to deal with Qin Kaiyi. Points to when someone has a bad habit/behavior, and you can’t fix it no matter what).
Following Ziyang Pei, Qin Kaiyi quickly walked out of the formation that had trapped him, and more Hua Lian disciples appeared around him. He took a closer look and found that they were at what looked like an altar.
“Cultivate well.” Ziyang Pei’s mood was still not very good. Even that habitual smile that hung on his face couldn’t be seen: “Your little shidi is really not good to provoke.”
“Why?” Qin Kaiyi looked at Zi Yangpei, puzzled.
“He actually formed a core,” Ziyang Pei expressionlessly replied. “He is the only cultivator I know who has formed a core when he is not yet twenty.”
“He formed a core?????” Qin Kaiyi looked horrified. “You aren’t kidding me?” He remembered that in the original work, Shen Feixiao hadn’t formed a core even ten years from now ah!
“Is this joke funny?” Ziyang Pei said, “On the fifth day after we left, a Heavenly Tribulation appeared at the Lingshan Sect, and then the sky filled with magical clouds. With one glance you can tell that the sky’s appearance indicated successful core formation. He, I didn’t expect it. A righteous cultivator shidi actually caught up to a demonic cultivator shixiong like you. If I were you, I would long be ashamed to death.”
“…” Qin Kaiyi listened to Ziyang Pei’s ridicule, but his mood was extremely heavy–this kind of cultivation speed, no matter how he thought of it it didn’t seem right. What kind of problem did Shen Feixiao have???
“He has a heart demon.” Ziyang Pei knew Qin Kaiyi’s doubts, but he didn’t keep him in suspense: “Some heart demons can make people’s psyches collapse, while others can make people’s skill advance thousands of miles.”
“Why?” Qin Kaiyi still didn’t understand the meaning of Ziyang Pei’s words.
“Why?” Hearing Qin Kaiyi’s question, Ziyang Pei looked at the main culprit in front of his eyes with a smile that was not a smile: “Heart demons can also be called obsessions. Lecherous men confused by loveliness, powerful people crazy for power… then what if this person’s obsession is to become strong? If his ultimate desire is to dominate everything, to become strong enough to obtain his beloved thing?”
“… No, there are always people who have the same obsessions as him. How come those people haven’t cultivated so quickly?” Qin Kaiyi didn’t dare to believe him.
“Do others have the Mountain Cloud Notes to build their foundation?” Ziyang Pei retorted. “Do other people have the Rain-Soaked Bell to make their mind clear?”
“… Okay.” Qin Kaiyi was embarrassed… He didn’t think of this point.
“You should pray that he will know that you are the masked person a bit later,” Ziyang Pei said lightly, “otherwise I am really worried about what bitter experiences you will have in the future.”
“…” Qin Kaiyi’s expression was ugly and he didn’t know what to say.
“Seeing Shen Feixiao’s temper, I’m just afraid that he will shut you in a cage,” Ziyang Pei said to Qin Kaiyi. It was a joke that held a little seriousness.
“… not funny at all.” Qin Kaiyi frowned.
“Yes, it’s really not funny.” Ziyang Pei restrained his grin and looked at Qin Kaiyi thoughtfully: “Stay away from Ziyang Shi, he’s not easy to provoke… Also, in Hua Lian Sect, where you shouldn’t go you absolutely mustn’t. Otherwise even I won’t be able to save you. ”
“En.” Qin Kaiyi had no objections. He knew that this sect was best known for its poisonous insects and talismans.
“Let’s go and see where you live.” With that said, Ziyang Pei took Qin Kaiyi to an unassuming hut. Unknown species of flowers grew on the rocks around the house. Some looked like clusters of small daisies, with strong fragrance. Qin Kaiyi involuntarily sneezed twice.
“Don’t run around, practice well.” Ziyang Pei, who brought Qin Kaiyi into the hut, said lightly, “You have to know that people without value are not eligible to stay in Hua Lian Sect.”
“Of course I know.” Qin Kaiyi thought that Ziyang Pei’s attitude was very strange, as if he had continually been hinting at something.
“If you know then good.” Looking at Qin Kaiyi again, Ziyang Pei turned and left. “Then I’ll go first, you’re on your own.”
“En.” Qin Kaiyi didn’t say anything more. The strange feeling became more and more intense. It was so intense that he suspected that there was something wrong with Ziyang Pei. This intuition made his mood difficult to calm. It was only when he saw a certain scene that he understood where the problem actually was.
