THDP Ch 102 Part 3 – War Maiden (III)

Yun Qingyan turned his eyes away, evading Meng Qi’s bright eyes. He continued: “The Great Devil Seat is often an ancient clan of devil cultivators. After surviving tens of thousands of years of countless war, they are extremely powerful. And…” Yun Qingyan’s eyes fell on the unconscious girl: “A tattoo like the one behind her ear means that she has a position in one of the Great Devil Seats.”

Meng Qi: “…”

“Such female cultivators are called War Maiden in the Devil Realm. They are strong fighters who have been baptized by countless wars. Every time a war is ignited, they will rise arms, protecting the master of the Great Devil Seat they swear allegiance to.” Yun Qingyan said. “As a War Maiden, it is impossible for her to not have lives on her hands. Of course I cannot tell whether it was devil cultivators, devil beasts, or…” Yun Qingyan slowly glanced at Meng Qi; the meaning was self-evident.

Meng Qi’s face was full of disappointment. In fact, she already understood that devil cultivators were the enemies of the Three Thousand Worlds. Although she swore to never let anyone die without trying to save their lives, she would never try to save an enemy who might kill her brethren one day.

“…I see.” Meng Qi replied in a low voice. Sovereign Qingyan had made it so clear, and she could no longer deceive herself by making such weak excuses.

Meng Qi’s fingers hanging on her side bent slightly again.

“Meng Qi.” Yun Qingyan’s eyes brightened, “You can save her.”

“Huh?” Meng Qi turned her head suddenly. Her eyes lit up, but they quickly dimmed again: “I cannot.”

Meng Qi pursed her lips and said in a low voice, “Senior Lin Yan, whom I met in the Grand Tournament barrier, was originally the most talented person in the history of medical cultivation. At the Comprehending Perfection stage, she reached the Profound Realm of medical cultivation. In her era, she really had the chance to become the legendary healer of the Earth or even Heaven Realm.”

Meng Qi continued: “But devil cultivators invaded, and the people of Three Thousand Worlds, cultivators and ordinary people alike, were in danger. When six cities and eight towns nearby were in danger of annihilation, Senior Lin Yan voluntarily scattered her cultivation base, falling into two realms below, and saved their lives. However, from then on, it would be difficult for her to make further progress in life.”

Meng Qi’s voice was low, “We medical cultivators will never save venomous snakes that will bite us after they wake up.”

“Her spiritual sea is completely damaged, and repairing it is not an overnight effort.” Yun Qingyan said: “It just so happens that you need to refine the Five Spirits Cauldron. That’s being said, you can use her to practice your hands and help you refine the Five Spirits Cauldron.” His tone was indifferent: “Even if her spiritual sea was repaired, it would take at least three to five days for her to recover, during which you can kill her anytime.”

Meng Qi: “…”

Yun Qingyan said, “How?”

Meng Qi stared at him blankly, but said nothing.

The corners of Yun Qingyan’s lips raised slightly: “Besides, you want to refine the Five Spirits Cauldron to mend someone’s spiritual sea. Five primal aura is not something you can handle easily. Are you going to try it directly on the person you want to save without practicing it beforehand?”

Meng Qi was stunned, and seemed to lose her words for a while. Yun Qingyan’s words made sense, but at the same time, a sense of coldness that she had never felt when facing him before was slowly rising on her back.

Meng Qi’s body couldn’t help shaking slightly. Since the black-clothed woman is a devil realm’s war maiden whose hands were stained with countless blood, she had no intention of saving her. But even though the other party was a devil cultivator, an enemy, she never thought that she could do such a thing.

In Meng Qi’s eyes, medical skills were something used to save people. That is, even when she was on the verge of death, she would firmly continue to pursue the path she had chosen. Of course, as a cultivator, she wouldn’t hesitate to take lives in order to protect herself and others, but…

Meng Qi stared down at the woman lying on the ground. The other party’s face was pale. Just looking at her appearance, they shouldn’t be too different in age.

Even if this person deserved to die, she couldn’t make herself do that kind of thing. Meng Qi took a deep breath. For the first time, she refuted Yun Qingyan’s words. “Sovereign Qingyan.” She raised her eyes, as if she could look straight into Yun Qingyan’s heart, “I can’t do this.”

Her tone was firm: “Saving people and harming others are two distinct actions. It’s one thing to harm others in order to protect oneself or other people. However, I can’t do this…” Meng Qi frowned slightly. For a while, she seemed to be looking for words. “I cannot do such a thing. To save one person with the sacrifice of another doesn’t match the dao path I follow.”

After Meng Qi finished speaking, she cupped her hands at Yun Qingyan in a salute: “I am very grateful for Sovereign Qingyan’s guidance, but please forgive me for not being able to follow your instruction.”

“Are you sure?” Yun Qingyan raised an eyebrow, slowly and relaxedly, “You have to know that this war maiden is about to reach the peak of the Spirit Severing stage, but very conveniently has her spiritual sea shattered. If you use her spiritual sea to refine your Five Spirits Cauldron, you will be able to obtain a very powerful natal magic weapon. In the next few hundred years, no one will be able to match you in the medical field.”

“No.” Meng Qi shook her head firmly, “No matter how powerful the Five Spirits Cauldron I might obtain in that way, it can’t become my natal magic weapon.”

For Three Thousand Worlds’ cultivators, one’s natal magic weapon was the weapon for life connected to them via spiritual communication. Imagining of using a Five Spirits Cauldron obtained in such a way as her natal magic weapon, each cell of Meng Qi’s body screamed repulsion. On top of that, Meng Qi also had a good reason to believe that her Dao heart would be damaged once she did such an atrocity, and it would be difficult for her cultivation to advance thereafter.

“Haha.” Yun Qingyan chuckled softly, “Meng Qi, what about the friend you want to save by refining the Five Spirits Cauldron? Are you giving up on him?”
