“I, I, I…” Sikong Xing almost burst into tears, “I forgot that my cultivation base was already approaching the peak!”
Meng Qi carved the array directly above Sikong Xing’s spiritual sea, which accidentally drained her spiritual aura to activate. But they were now in the Starfallen Sea. The sky above was full of starlight. Noticing that Sikong Xing’s spiritual sea was suddenly dried, the star array in her body mistakenly thought that its master had suffered a fatal threat and began to frantically absorb the surrounding starlight aura to protect her.
Ji Wujiong looked up and down at the blue-robed girl who always maintained that kind of unperturbed calmness from the moment they first met. Apart from the occasions when he witnessed her flustered look because of that mysterious person she persistently called ‘Master,’ he rarely ever saw her expression changing.
“Meng Qiqi, are you robbing my business?” Ji Wujiong squinted his eyes and chuckled angrily. Inside, however, he was actually both surprised and happy. What did this little girl mean? Aware that he had a genius in array by his side, he had taken precautions by drawing very quickly in one go. Let alone learning how ordinary people might not be able to see the moment when he drew.
Meng Qi’s heart skipped a beat: “Venomous snakes.”
Without wasting time, she took out a porcelain bottle from her storage space and made a circle around her friend in one swift movement, distributing three Qingfeng pills for each of them. She refined these pills after leaving the Grand Tournament barrier, making them fourth-realm pills, each imbued with a similar level of Qingfeng spell.
Ji Wujiong snorted with a face full of disdain: “You want to pay me to teach you stuff? Meng Qiqi, what do you think of me?!”
“Forget it if you don’t want to.” Meng Qi narrowed her eyes and resolutely turned her gaze away.
Ji Wujiong chuckled in disdain, “Little girl, has your master never told you? The red foxes and the black tortoises are incompatible by nature. No matter how hard you try, at best, you could only learn one-third of his skills.”
Meng Qi turned to Xu Zijun and Xue Chengxuan: “Fellow Daoist Xue, Fellow Daoist Xu, our number one priority is to find Sister Xue.” She then reached out and pulled Sikong Xing’s arm, “Xingxing, we can beat him together after leaving the Starfallen Sea!”
“Got it.” Sikong Xing nodded sullenly.
“You…” Xu Zijun’s face turned red with anger, yet he was unable to come up with a rebuttal. The sacred Star Lake, which had been passed down in Xingluo Pavilion for thousands of years, was known to be able to help cultivators break through the cultivation base. For this reason, the disciples of Xingluo Pavilion competed hard to win one of the three coveted quotas every year, lest they fall behind their peers. Because of the strong demands, the sect even made a rule that a disciple who won this year could only try again after five years.
This name struck like thunder, especially for Xue Chengxuan, Li Che, and Xu Zijun, whose expressions changed drastically. These three could be said to have a grudge against Ji Wujiong. Needless to say for Li Che and Xue Chengxuan, but with all the charades Ji Wujiong made during the Medical Cultivators Conference, Xingluo Pavilion, who hosted the event, also had their face smeared alongside the Medical Society Alliance.
