Meng Qi slept for a long time. When she woke up again, the pain in her body was slightly better, but she still felt very weak and lethargic. She then dived into her spiritual sea. Her spiritual sea was still dry, but the cracks seemed less than before. Above the sea, strands of aura from the bamboo slip were still wrapped around the Five Spirits Cauldron, and the revolving inner core next to them looked a bit brighter now.
Despite feeling very tired, Meng Qi knew that she was recuperating. Her eyelids were still very heavy, but at least she could open them now, albeit with much effort.
Meng Qi’s long eyelashes fluttered twice, and she slowly opened her eyes. Her surrounding was a bit dark — not pitch black, but a kind of comfortable dimness suitable for sleeping. When Meng Qi’s eyes completely opened, the first thing she saw was a light gauze hanging from the bed ceiling.
Meng Qi slowly blinked; her body was still very lethargic, but her mind was slowly becoming clearer.
Where is she?
Meng Qi moved her body a bit and felt the soft and thin silk quilt fall from her chin. Her body was clean and fresh, and so did her clothes. Except for the still lingering soreness, she didn’t feel any discomfort.
Meng Qi closed her eyes, and the memories of yesterday suddenly flooded into her mind.
She and Yun Qingyan…
Meng Qi’s heart suddenly jumped wildly.
Stop it! She must not recall that particular incident! Sovereign Qingyan lost consciousness at the time and didn’t know what he was doing!
She must act as if there was nothing…
Right! As if there was nothing! Otherwise, Yun Qingyan may feel guilty or even feel sorry for her!
Right! That’s what she is supposed to do!
Meng Qi took a deep breath and made up her mind to pretend that nothing had ever happened between them. Anyway, Yun Qingyan was about to fall into the qi deviation at the time. He had no consciousness, so he naturally shouldn’t remember anything. Taking a deep breath, Meng Qi opened her eyes again and propped her hand on the bed, trying to sit up.
As soon as Meng Qi tried to rise, a hand reached out and pulled the thin quilt from her body, while another hand hugged her back and helped her up. When Meng Qi turned her head in surprise, she saw Yun Qingyan sitting on a reclining chair next to the bed.
Under the soft glow of luminous pearl, Meng Qi could see every line of his figure very clearly, as the handsome man in the white robe gently supported her body. She was a little nervous at first, but when she saw his obvious improvement, she immediately forgot everything else.
Meng Qi’s eyes lit up: “Are you all right?”
“…” Yun Qingyan stared at the girl with a complicated expression. The joy on her face was sincere, and her bright eyes were full of undisguised emotions.
Out of reflex, Meng Qi touched Yun Qingyan’s wrist with her right hand, and the tips of her fingers began to shine. “Ouch—” she groaned. She thought that she had slept for a long time, but actually, only a full day had passed. The side effect of the Cangmingsan Pill had yet to fade, so when she used her aura just now, her spiritual sea trembled in tremor, making her head dizzy.
Yun Qingyan quickly clasped Meng Qi’s hand. When she came back to her sense, a large amount of spiritual aura was slowly flowing into her body. Her spiritual sea seemed to be sprinkled with nourishing rain, making her feel rejuvenated in an instant.
However, the pleasant flow of aura was soon cut off, and she heard Yun Qingyan say, “Your spiritual sea is still not recovered. You cannot bear too much aura.”
“Yes.” Meng Qi nodded obediently. Yun Qingyan was much more powerful than her, but he was not a medical cultivator and was not trained in the art of healing. Although he could take a small action like this to help her stabilize the turbulent spiritual sea, if he really poured a lot of aura into her body in an attempt to hasten the recovery of her spiritual sea, maybe the sea would end up exploding, taking her life with it.
“Sovereign Qingyan.” Meng Qi looked up at him, “Are you all right?”
“…I’m okay.” Yun Qingyan replied.
“I’m glad!” Meng Qi sighed in relief. Now that she had been assured of Yun Qingyan’s recovery, she finally had time to check on her own condition. Although she still couldn’t use aura, her spiritual sense had completely recovered, so she quickly closed her eyes and dived into her spiritual sea.
Alright! Seeing that her inner core was undamaged, Meng Qi sighed in relief again. Floating above the spiritual sea, the sphere was still spinning quietly, oozing out strands of aura. Next to the inner core, even the prototype of the Five Spirit Cauldron was still there, covered by the white light from the bamboo slip Lin Yan gave her.
Meng Qi was truly relieved. She was also taking a big risk at that time. Fortunately, there was Senior Lin Yan’s bamboo slip, or her Five Spirit Cauldron would have failed in the initial refining process. Without the bamboo slip that recorded the refining method of the Five Spirit Cauldron, even if she had managed to gather all the five materials, she would no longer be able to refine this lost artifact again.
Meng Qi was surprised to find that her Heart-clearing Spell, together with the Five Aggregates Heart-clearing Spell, had reached the peak of the fifth realm and was only one step away from the sixth realm.
A sixth realm spell — even if it was only the most basic spell, it was no trivial matter.
In addition, her medical cultivation had also advanced a bit, from the first realm of the fourth rank to the second realm of the fourth rank.
Well, not bad!
Meng Qi was elated. The Five Spirit Cauldron she was most worried about was still there, and she even had additional gains. Now, the only inconvenience was that she couldn’t use aura for three days.
But that is nothing!
When Meng Qi opened her eyes again, she met Yun Qingyan’s gaze. She couldn’t help but smile: “Sovereign Qingyan, my medical cultivation level has advanced to the second realm of the fourth rank!”
Yun Qingyan: “…”
