THDP Ch 122 Part 4 – What He Has Given Her (IV)

Outside the forest, the rest of the group watched on with mounting apprehension, their hearts pounding with anxiety. They stood at the ready, poised to leap into action at a moment’s notice. When Ji Wujiong and Meng Qi suddenly stopped midway, Chu Tianfeng was the first to lose his composure, “Meng Qiqi, are you all right?!” he called out loudly.

“Um.” Meng Qi turned around and nodded, “I’m fine.”

“Let’s go back first.” She said, trying to pull her hand away from Ji Wujiong’s.

“My ancestor!” Ji Wujiong quickly held her wrist even tighter, “Are you trying to get rid of me?!”

“Sorry.” Meng Qi finally realized that their safety was brought by the token in her hand.

Practically hand in hand, the two walked out of the forest and returned to the group.

Su Junmo watched them return with his mouth agape, feeling extremely antsy inside. He tried to say something, but after a long pause, he finally closed his mouth again in defeat.

“So…” Once they regrouped, Meng Qi spoke: “Can we conclude that this token is working?” She raised her palm.

“Yes.” Ji Wujiong nodded. The corners of his lips curled up into a malicious smile, “Of course, it’s also possible that I’m lying to you. So? Do you want to take the risk?”

“Meng Qiqi.” Chu Tianfeng stepped forward, “Lend me the order. I will go.”

“What nonsense are you talking about?” Ji Wujiong sneered in ridicule, “Unless it was given by the Demon Monarch himself, this order is no more useful than the pebbles on the street.”

Meng Qi’s heart moved slightly. She knew that Ji Wujiong’s words were meant for her. In other words… Sovereign Qingyan should be the Demon Monarch himself. In fact, she had previously speculated about Yun Qingyan’s identity, especially because the clues revealed by Sikong Xing and Su Junmo were not entirely subtle. But she didn’t expect that the token, said to be the ownership token of the Luoyun Manor, turned out to be a detached manifestation of the demon monarch’s order.

“So, only Meng Qiqi can go.” Ji Wujiong spoke again, “If she wants to take two more people out, it’s best for her to go in alone.”

“No!” Without waiting for Meng Qi’s response, Chu Tianfeng and others exclaimed in unison: “Impossible!”

“Then she can take one more person to accompany her in.” Ji Wujiong said. “But it will take two trips instead of one…so you must consider carefully. The Starfallen Sea is not part of the Three Realms and has experienced tens of thousands of years of growth in isolation. Any influence carried in the bloodlines of its inhabitant has long since faded, including their fear and awe for the demon monarch’s order. Even if the order is still somewhat useful now, if you take its power for granted and come in and out as you please, the forest might really be angered and decide to kill you all and for once.”

“Are you fucking kidding me?!” Chu Tianfeng was on the verge of exploding. How could someone be this annoying?!

“I’ll go with Meng Qi.” Qin Xiumo declared, “You guys wait outside.”

“No!” Su Junmo frowned, “I’ll go.”

“I, I,…” Sikong Xing was anxious, “Let me go with Meng Qi!”

Meng Qi took a deep breath: “I’ll go by myself.”

“No!” They objected again in unison.

“Ji Wujiong is right.” Meng Qi reasoned, “No one knows how long the order can guarantee our safety. Cutting the trip short is our safest bet.”

“Actually, Meng Qi is correct.” Ji Wujiong said with a lazy smile: “What’s more, if the demon monarch’s order is proven useless in the end, having one more person going in only means one extra corpse. Why do something useless?”

“Ji Wujiong.” Meng Qi turned to the black-robed young man, “Continue with the previous plan and draw the array on me.”

As she spoke, Meng Qi returned to her five spirits cauldron. At this moment, the fragrance of medicinal herbs emanating from the small cauldron was already quite strong, with a sweet smell wafting from inside. The phoenix fruits inside had been refined into small, translucent beads that were as lovely as coral beads. Who would have thought these things were the Nirvana Pills that could snatch people away from the death’s jaw and regrow their blood, bones, and flesh?

Meng Qi took out a porcelain bottle and filled it with the Nirvana Pills. Xue Chengxuan and Li Che also packed the pills they had refined and handed them over to her.

“Meng Qiqi.” Ji Wujiong walked to her, “Don’t worry. Have I ever lied to you?”

“Well,” Meng Qi nodded, “To be honest, I’m a little worried.” She turned her head and looked into the depths of the forest with slightly furrowed brows: “But this plan is much better than the previous one. What’s more…” She pursed her lips and fell silent.

What’s more, when they entered the forest just now, she felt that the woman’s voice seemed a little familiar. And at that moment, the bamboo slip she received from Lin Yan suddenly jumped up restlessly. The bamboo slip stayed inside Meng Qi’s spiritual sea and was nourished by her aura, so there was a subtle connection between them. This connection told Meng Qi that the bamboo slip was feeling joy, similar to the delight one felt when meeting a long-lost friend.

“Then…” Ji Wujiong shrugged, “Do you want to know more about the demon monarch’s order?” This was the question he didn’t finish just now.

“No.” Meng Qi’s reply was concise.

“Really?” Ji Wujiong stared straight into her eyes. The blue-robed girl looked calm and firm, and her gaze was as bright as ever.

“At least, not now.” Meng Qi said again, “And I also don’t want to hear it from you.” She suddenly raised the corners of her lips and smiled: “Ji Wujiong, I won’t give you a chance to mock him.”

“Tsk…” Knowing what she meant, Ji Wujiong snorted lightly.

At the same time, at one of the entrances to the Starfallen Sea located in the Demon Realm, troops of thousands were standing ready in guard.

Even with so many pairs of eyes, no one realized when the white-robed man appeared.

When they finally saw his figure, he was already standing deep within the troops.

The hem of his white robe was fluttering with the wind, which also carried a low and pleasant voice. There was a trace of helplessness in his tone, “I was too lazy to fight again, but… since I have given the thing to her, I cannot allow others to take it away.”

He glanced around and smiled: “Don’t you agree?”

  1. Boy acting behind the scenes. He better not get more sick or else she’ll be mad lol
    Many thanks

  2. Since the voice in the forest seems to be familiar to Lin Yan, I’m guessing it must a medical cultivator who also fell in the Starfallen Sea, but unfortunately didn’t retain her medical principles and kills beasts and people for fun now. Either that or she’s trying to absorb the aura of any being that crosses over so she can somehow use it to escape from there. She might not allow Meng Qi to take Xue Jinwen and Pei Mufeng out of the forest despite the power of the Monarch Order, but she might resonate with Lin Yan’s presence in Meng Qi and allow her to leave without a problem.

    Thanks for the chapter! 😀
