In Three Thousand Worlds, medical society’s influence was the strongest in the Western Realm, and many medical cultivators originated there. Su Junmo also made acquaintances with many medical cultivators during his long stay in the Western Realm. Meng Qi and her group had just sat down for less than one incense stick of time, and six or seven people had already come to greet Su Junmo.
Sikong Xing sat next to Meng Qi, watching in boredom as Su Junmo was busy socializing. She wanted to continue chatting with Meng Qi, but when she turned her head, she saw that the other girl had closed her eyes, clearly entering a state of meditation.
That night, Meng Qi didn’t sleep at all. The efficiency of the newly-learned cultivation technique was significantly higher, so she simply sat cross-legged on the bed and cultivated. Even without resting all night, she was full of energy the following day.
At breakfast, Sikong Xing couldn’t help but stared at Meng Qi for a while and asked: “Meng Qiqi, did anything good happen? I feel that you are in a good mood today.”
“But Meng Qiqi.” Su Junmo turned his head and asked, “Didn’t you afraid that they will attack you in anger?”
“I’m afraid.” Meng Qi said, “So, when detoxifying Xue Lingfeng, I put a protective array made from Four Orders And Four Seasons Array inside the room. I also fed Xue Lingfeng a Ningshen pill, which made her sleep for twelve hours. After that, we just waited for you. The reason they devise this cumbersome plan is because they don’t want to tear their relationship with you, nor do they want to offend Pavilion Master Pei too much. And…” She smiled, “Don’t they still have two other poisoned disciples? I didn’t tell them anything about the array. I think they either didn’t go to Sect Leader Shen, or he simply didn’t tell them anything. Otherwise, Feng Alliance wouldn’t come to me.”
Six more hours passed. Suddenly, there was a rapid knock on the door. Su Junmo’s anxious voice came from outside: “Meng Qiqi, Sikong Xing, are you inside?”
Meng Qi opened her eyes and turned her gaze towards the door. She jumped out of bed and quickly erased the traces of the array on the floor.
“All of you, please go out.” Meng Qi said.
“Hmph!” Wen He snorted coldly. He turned and strode towards the door.
Wen Su flicked his robe and followed his son out.
This old fart is truly despicable! He is clearly threatening Meng Qiqi!
Why were these people so annoying? On the surface, they behaved like benevolent immortals. But just for such a small thing, they acted so despicably.
“He’er!” At this moment, Wen Su and Xue Chuan walked into the room. Wen He’s last remarks fell into their ears completely. Wen Su’s face sank, and he sternly reprimanded his son, “What are you talking about?”
“Father.” Wen He seemed a little dissatisfied, but he turned at his father and didn’t retort.
Meng Qi raised her lips, letting Wen He drag her forward. Sikong Xing quickly rushed over to keep up and gently pulled Meng Qi’s sleeve.
Xue Chuan and Wen Su were farther behind, looking at the three with a smile, like a kind elder who was watching their family’s talented children. A little helpless and a little proud.
Meng Qi was equally surprised. Seeing the two old men, who were old enough to be her father, greeted her so amiably, her attitude was also softened a lot. Meng Qi said politely, “This junior has indeed met Fellow Daoist Xue and Fellow Daoist Wen before. But this junior is inexperienced and can’t afford such praise.”
“Haha.” Wen Su glanced at Xue Chuan, who was smiling, and said gently, “Young Daoist Meng doesn’t need to be so humble. We watch Chengxuan grows up. Even though he has a good relationship with my son, he never praises others this much.” After a pause, he said again: “Young Daoist Meng is a medical cultivator. You come to Xingluo City this time should be for Medical Cultivator Conference. I wonder from which sect Young Daoist Meng is? Do you come here with your elders?”
“The Lord of Xingluo City?” Meng Qi was stunned. It was the first time she heard such a statement. Three Thousand World had a specific rule. There was one sect per city, and the sect located nearest to the city was responsible for protecting the ordinary people residing there. In exchange, part of the city’s tax revenue would be paid to maintain the sect’s daily operation.
