Meng Qi clutched the jade slip. There was a usage instruction on its surface. She had heard about Beyond The Heaven before and knew that besides Cloud Immortal Pavilion, this was another famous trading place patronized by the cultivators. Rumor said that you could buy anything here. Heavenly treasure, various magic tools, herbs and poisons, weapons…even some spells.

This sentence sounded familiar. Meng Qi couldn’t help but glance at Chu Tianfeng. Was this Elder soliciting her?

“And……” Xun Yan continued: “…the ordinary disciples from the medicine hall can get ten third-grade spirit stones as a subsidy every day. If they get promoted to a higher position or leveled up their medical cultivation to a higher rank, their daily subsidy will also increase.”

Ten third-grade spirit stones every day. Compared with the five sixth-grade spirit stones Meng Qi just received, that was nothing. But it was paid daily, so after some time, the accumulated number was still very impressive.

Xun Yan looked at Meng Qi with some expectations. His eyes fell on the bamboo slips in Meng Qi’s hands: “We also have a special medical library.” He cleared his throat: “Cough…from the leader up above to disciple below, our sect attached great importance to the medical hall. One of Fentian Palace’s five peaks, the places with the highest density of spiritual aura in the whole sect, belongs to the medical hall. All members of the medical hall can freely enter the library. Except for a small number of bamboo slips that require the Palace Master’s permission to read, most of them can be accessed at will.”

Meng Qi was tempted. Fentian Palace was a large sect ranked in the top ten in the Eastern Realm. Coupled with thousands of years of history, the rich collection of books they accumulated was obviously far beyond the Qingfeng Valley.

But…

She was hesitant because Chu Tianfeng was also there.

“Young Daoist doesn’t need to worry.” Xun Yan was an experienced old man. He could see Meng Qi’s hesitation at a glance, “You can think carefully.”

“Thanks for Elder’s consideration.” Meng Qi politely saluted.

The looks on Qingfeng Valley’s disciples became even more marvelous. Everyone harbored a little calculation: they all wanted their sect to join under Fentian Palace’s banner, seeking the larger sect’s protection. Except for the sect leader, most of the disciples would happily accept this offer. Compared to the Qingfeng Valley, a sect so small that no one in the Eastern Realm cared about it, they would definitely be much better off to put on identity as Fentian Palace’s disciple.

Originally, they all thought that Lu Qingran, who was brought back by Chu Tianfeng, would be taken as an honored guest by Fentian Palace. So when they were badly gossiping about Meng Qi before, they also had the intention to please Lu Qingran. After all, no one ever believed that Meng Qi could be able to cure Chu Tianfeng. She was simply trying to attract the attention of the future Fentian Palace Master.

Who could have imagined that in just a few days, the situation was reversed? Junior Sister Meng Qi really cured Young Master Chu, who didn’t give Junior Sister Lu Qingran’s face for her sake. Moreover, the high-ranking elder of Fentian Palace, a master who already reached the peak of the Nascent Soul stage, personally invited Junior Sister Meng to join Fentian Palace, and even offered such generous conditions.

The disciples’ eyes looking at Meng Qi became more eager.

After Xun Yan exchanged several polite words with the sect leader, the hall was dispersed.

Meng Qi followed behind Yan Mingfeng and walked towards the library pavilion.

“Do you want to go?” Yan Mingfeng looked at the quiet disciple. There was a faint smile in his eyes.

“This disciple is indeed a little bit moved.” Meng Qi replied: “Fentian Palace is such a large sect, their book collection must be very rich.”
Yan Mingfeng nodded. “This kind of opportunity is indeed very rare.” Yan Mingfeng couldn’t see through this disciple. He recalled how this girl asked for money in public, making the Nascent Soul elder visibly flustered.

The smile in Yan Minfeng’s eyes deepened. “Moreover, they even give out ten third-grade spirit stones every day. Fentian Palace is a real money house.” Rarely joked, he teased Meng Qi, “You should go.”

Meng Qi’s cheek reddened. Although she looked calm just now, so fearless and frank in front of the Nascent Soul elder, she suddenly felt a little embarrassed.

“Do you know that besides the Cloud Immortal Pavillion, Three Thousand Worlds also has a place called Beyond The Heaven?” Yan Mingfeng saw Meng Qi’s reddening cheek and changed the topic. Hands behind his back, he continued talking: “Beyond The Heaven is quite mysterious. No one knows where it is truly located. But many rare items that cannot be found in Cloud Immortal Pavilion are sold in Beyond The Heaven. As long as you have enough spirit stones, there is nothing you cannot buy there.”

“Disciple has heard about it.” Meng Qi’s curiosity rose. However, rumor said that Beyond The Heaven was very mysterious. Unless by recommendation, one might be unable to even find its entrance. In her previous life, Meng Qi never got a chance to visit it.

Yan Mingfeng lightly moved his hand, and a small jade slip fell on his palm. “Take it.” He handed the jade slip into Meng Qi’s hands. “After you imprint your spiritual sense into it, you can enter Beyond The Heaven via this jade slip anytime you want.”

“Thank you, Elder. But if you gave it to me, then you…”

“Don’t worry.” Yan Mingfeng waved his hand. “I still have another one.”

Meng Qi blinked. Elder Yan was indeed a respected elder of Qingfeng Valley, a powerful Golden Core cultivator. But a place like Beyond The Heaven, even the sect leader herself probably never entered. It was said that in the entire Three Thousand World, very few cultivators could enter Beyond The Heaven, and the majority of them were at least in the Nascent Soul stage.

Meng Qi bowed her head, studying the warm jade slip in her hand. She then looked towards Elder Yan, who was walking slowly. The elder was so calm and composed, didn’t look even a little bit lofty. Meng Qi merely heard a part of his experiences and already had great respect towards this elder whose medical cultivation level was the highest in the entire sect. So she liked to ask Elder Yan for advice and guidance, both before and after her rebirth.

She never expected…

“If there is something you don’t understand in that bamboo slip, you can come to the library pavilion tomorrow.”

“Yes, Elder.” Meng Qi saluted his back. She carefully stored the jade slip and turned to walk back to her room.

The door was still closed properly. When Meng Qi pushed the door open, the little white tiger who had been lying on the bed suddenly looked up. After seeing it was Meng Qi, the little guy lazily lay down again.

“Xiao Qi.” Meng Qi stepped forward. She happily rubbed the little tiger’s soft fur for a while, enjoying the comfortable touch on her palm.

Little white tiger: “…”

He seemed to completely have given up struggling, his eyes narrowed with helplessness.

“I probably have gotten the clue about the poison in your paw.” Meng Qi told him. She took out the bamboo slips again. “Today, I collected the spirit stones from Chu Tianfeng, so now I have money to buy the herbs needed for your medicine.” Meng Qi smiled and squeezed the little white tiger’s ear. Although her worries have still remained, she should focus on what she could do right now.

Meng Qi took out the jade slip given by Elder Yan. It should be much easier to buy rare and exotic medicinal ingredients in Beyond The Heaven.

The little white tiger was lying on his back, letting her patting his body. When he saw the jade slip, a surprise flashed in the blue eyes.

Beyond The Heaven? The little white tiger looked at Meng Qi, then at the jade slip. Qingfeng Valley seemed to be not as simple as he thought.

“Meng Qi!” Qingfeng Valley’s sect leader blushed and quickly scolded Meng Qi, “Don’t be rude.”

The great hall was immediately engulfed in an awkward atmosphere. Qingfeng Valley disciples looked at the familiar scene being re-enacted in front of their eyes. A few days ago, they seemed to see a similar scene. They collectively thought in a trance: they never expected that this junior sister Meng Qi could really cure Young Master Chu.

Qingfeng Valley was not very vast. After asking enough questions, Elder Yan accelerated his pace. They quickly entered the great hall via the side entrance. The two disciples hurriedly stepped forward and respectfully opened the door for Elder Yan.

The people in the main hall seemed to be in the middle of a conversation. When the door creaked open, everyone stopped talking and turned to look at the entrance.

This is the first part of this week’s mass release.


Meng Qi looked at the two disciples. She then turned to salute Elder Yan: “Elder, this disciple will leave first. I will come to see you tomorrow.”

“Wait.” Elder Yan glanced at the two disciples: “Did the sect leader tell you why she called Meng Qi?”

He wasn’t doubting the sect leader, but Fentian Palace’s Elder mentioned by these disciples made him a little wary. Meng Qi was a disciple he valued. This girl had a calm temperament and genuinely loved medical skills. Elder Yan hoped that she could reach the higher part of the medical path.

One of the disciples respectfully replied: “People from Fentian Palace were visiting our sect today.” Although the disciples in Qingfeng Valley didn’t want to be a personal disciple of Elder Yan, who was famous for being distant to the sect’s internal affairs and authority, this elder was still one of the only three Golden Core cultivators in their sect. Moreover, his medical cultivation was also the highest in the sect.

“The young master of Fentian Palace was injured and poisoned when saving Junior Sister Lu Qingran. Later, he was cured in Qingfeng Valley.”

Elder Yan nodded slightly. He also knew this.

“However, the poison that harmed their young master came from a fifth-rank devil beast. People from Fentian Palace, led by an elder in the peak of the Nascent Soul stage, wanted to inquire about the details, so the sect leader asked Junior Sister Meng Qi to come to meet them at the great hall.”

The other disciple looked at the expressionless Elder Yan and couldn’t help adding: “Fentian Palace’s Elder is really powerful. He had just arrived today and never met junior sister Meng Qi before. Still, he knows that she is in the library pavilion.” After a pause, he said, “Sure enough, Junior Sister really comes to visit Elder Yan again.”

Elder Yan slowly closed his eyes before opened them again. He stood up and gave the disciple a deep look. This Elder usually never stayed long in the sect premise. When he was here, he would remain in the library, so the disciples had little contact with him. But now, when his cold eyes swept them away, the two disciples buried their heads even lower and didn’t dare to meet his gaze.

“Let’s go.” Elder Yan said to Meng Qi, “I will go with you.”

“Elder, this disciple can cope by herself.”

Elder Yan simply didn’t like to entangle in mundane affairs, but he was not a fool. It was evident that something was wrong from these disciples’ explanations, and even Meng Qi could see it. Over the years, Elder Yan had been traveling to countless places and encountered all kinds of people. How could he, who was very experienced in dealing with innumerable troubles, didn’t perceive?

“Let’s go.” Elder Yan walked first. “Fentian Palace’s elder is visiting in person. As a Qingfeng Valley’s elder, I need to show my face.” His tone when speaking to Meng Qi was much kinder.

In fact, Elder Yan did not seem to be very old. Her hair was still dark, and his face had no wrinkles. When he stood tall, even in a simple blue robe, it was hard to hide his sage-like aura.

“Yes.” Meng Qi was grateful. She died once and thus became more touched by others’ kindness.

She followed Elder Yan. This elder, who made a great vow to heal all the patients in the world, was a bit limp when walking. Meng Qi hurriedly walked forward to support his arm.

This was the wound Elder Yan got on his previous trip. He went to save the people in a small town injured by a poisonous monster beast. At that time, time was running out, so Elder Yan had no choice but to transfer the poison from the patients into his own body, then pushed it under his knees to not hinder his movement when healing other patients.

But the monster beast was powerful, and the poisonous aura was staying for too long in Elder Yan’s body. Later, although he managed to force it out, some poison still left. Meng Qi had browsed through many records, only to find that this matter couldn’t be hurried, and could only wait slowly for the poison to be dissipated. Elder Yan was now in the sixth realm of the Golden Core stage. When he broke through into the next realm, the residual poison would be dissipated naturally.

The two disciples were following from far behind. Elder Yan’s pace wasn’t fast, but they didn’t dare to urge him.

“What poison?” Elder Yan asked on the way.

“A poison from fifth-rank devil beast, but fourth-rank devil beast can also use it. Fentian Palace’s young master is a Golden Core cultivator, so this disciple can use the fourth realm Qingfeng spell to detoxify him.” Meng Qi had nothing to hide from this elder who took good care of herself.

The two disciples following from behind couldn’t help but gasp in shock. They instantly looked at each other in doubt.

Qingfeng spell?!

Fourth realm?!

Did they mishear her?!

They entered the sect three or four years earlier than Meng Qi, but their Qingfeng spell was still in the second realm. Everyone knew that the higher the realm, the harder it was to breakthrough. What’s more, it was only a low-level, first-grade spell. Why should they bother to improve it?

“Good.” Elder Yan nodded. It was unknown whether he praised Meng Qi for curing Chu Tianfeng, or for her idea of using Qingfeng spell.

“Did you get injured?” Elder Yan asked again. At the same time, he raised his hand, sweeping a light across Meng Qi’s body. “Very good.” He nodded. The warmth in his eyes got deeper.

“It’s good for a medical cultivator to heal other people, but you should not forget to protect yourself.”

“Yes.” Meng Qi couldn’t help but smile slightly. Elder Yan, who lectured her like this, was still suffering from the poison he got because of his determination to heal others without caring for his own safety. But Meng Qi said nothing. There were three thousand cultivation paths, and among them, medical cultivation has never been very popular. But probably because of the existence of seniors like Elder Yan, Meng Qi never regretted her choice to embark on this path.

Actually, she knew. Elder Yan was a Golden Core cultivator. Even if his walks were limped, he didn’t need her help. After forming their core, a cultivator was able to control the magic tools that enable them to fly. This residual poison couldn’t hinder his movement at all. He just wanted to ask about the situation, all out of his care for her.

THDP Ch.10 Part 2 – Elder Yan (II)

Although Qingfeng Valley was small, it had been established for more than one hundred years. Its history as a medical sect was also close to two hundred years. Every time a disciple return to the sect after traveling outside, they would record their experiences in the bamboo slips and handed them over to the sect in exchange for a certain number of contribution points. All of these records could be found in the library pavilion. The elder who managed the library was Elder Yan. He was also the teacher Meng Qi admired the most in Qingfeng Valley.

THDP Ch.10 Part 1 – Elder Yan (I)

After walking through the main gate, Meng Qi directly returned to her room. She hugged the little white tiger tightly on the way back, didn’t want to meet another curious person like Lu Qingran.

As an ordinary disciple, her room was not large. It was furnished with a simple bed, table, and a few chairs, all made from bamboo. The little white tiger lazily scanned around with his eyes. Meng Qi had placed him on the only bed in the room. This bamboo bed was covered with a mattress that wasn’t soft nor hard. All in all, the room didn’t look like a typical girl’s boudoir.

“Little guy.” Meng Qi took a pill from the storage bracelet and stuffed it into the tiger’s mouth. “Your injuries are very complicated. For the time being, I may not be able to heal you.” She rubbed his fluffy head: “But rest assured, I will definitely heal you.”

Meng Qi’s voice was soft and sweet. Even when she spoke very seriously, she wouldn’t scare people. So when she whispered gently like now, it seemed to make the little tiger more relaxed. And it also made Chu Tianfeng, who was standing nearby, felt an indescribable feeling arose in his heart.
