Meng Qi returned to her room. The sect leader, all the elders, and people from Fentian palace had gone out to fight the devil beasts and haven’t returned yet. Chu Tianfeng didn’t look worried after he was back, so Meng Qi estimated that the battle was going on their favor. She stopped thinking about it, then reached out her hand to gently pulled Xiao Qi’s paw, who was still lying on the bed, and carefully checking his wound.
“Without the blazing feather, I must find a way to suppress the jackdaw grass effect as soon as possible.” She reached out to lightly squeezed Xiao Qi’s ear. After getting along for days, they had reached harmony. Xiao Qi was now completely used having his body petted by Meng Qi from time to time, his ears squeezed, and his fur combed….the little white tiger was also wholly helpless. He turned his body slightly, his little fluffy ears twitched a bit, but he didn’t try to avoid Meng Qi’s touch.
“Let’s sleep.” Having been busy most of the day, Meng Qi was utterly exhausted. She rubbed Xiao Qi’s head again and was about to lie down on her bed. But suddenly, there was a rush of footsteps outside the door: “Junior Sister Meng Qi! Is Junior Sister here?”
Someone was calling her, and also knocked on the door loudly: “Junior Sister, I’m your senior brother, Yu Jianbo.”
Meng Qi didn’t remember this name, but still opened the door. The one outside her room was a young and honest-looking disciple whose face she was somewhat familiar with.
“Junior Sister, it’s great that you are here!” He said, “Senior Sister Lu Qingran invites you to gather in the great hall. Elder Lu was coming back injured, he instructs us to immediately organize more personnel to follow him as reinforcement.”
“Huh?” Meng Qi strode out of the room, “What’s happen?” After Chu Tianfeng returned, she saw him kept hanging out near her room and didn’t seem to have any intention to go back to the battlefield. That’s why she thought things were going well.
“I don’t know.” Yu Jianbo said: “Let’s go to the hall first.”
When Meng Qi arrived, there were already seventeen or eighteen people standing inside the hall. Elder Lu stood in the center. He was one of Qingfeng Valley’s elders. There was blood on his arm, and his complexion didn’t look good.
“To make it short.” Elder Lu said: “This time, Fentian Palace received some news and discovered a gap in the boundary near Qingfeng Valley that separates Three Thousand Worlds with Demon and Devil Realm. Some devil beasts took the opportunity to invade. Everyone knows that under the command of elder Xun Yan and the sect leader, we went to exterminate the devils.”
“In the beginning, everything went smoothly. At this rate, in less than twenty days, we estimated all the invading devils could completely be wiped out.” Elder Lu spoke almost non-stop: “Who knows that this time the invasion to Qingfeng Valley was not from the Devil Realm. Several demon cultivators were lying in ambush in the dark, taking advantage of our battle with the devil beasts, and attacked from behind. Many disciples, both from Fentian Palace and our own sect, are injured.”
“Although the demon cultivators are powerful, their number is not large. However, because we have to fight both the demon cultivators and devil beasts at once, we don’t have enough hands to treat the injured disciples. So you should follow me to the battle area to help treating the casualties.” Elder Lu waved his hand, “Now go back and prepare commonly used medicines, mainly Ganlin and Beiming pills. If there are other hemostatic or trauma medicines, like Qingfeng pill, you can also prepare some.” He paused, remembering something, and looked at Meng Qi with a gleam in his eyes: “Meng Qi, you also follow us.”
The sect leader initially brought most of the disciples at the Foundation Establishment stage, leaving behind those with lower cultivation base. So Elder Lu simply called the remaining Foundation Establishment disciples, plus a few in the peak of Qi Condensation, and Meng Qi.
The disciples quickly dispersed and returned to their room to pack up. Many of them had some experiences of going out for practice, so they already knew what to do. Meng Qi also didn’t have any problem, but the little white tiger put her in a dilemma. Xiao Qi was injured, she definitely couldn’t take him with her. But to leave him in the sect, she also was not at ease.
And there was also Qin Xiumo…it would take at least half a month before she could calm the rest of the chaotic aura inside his body. Moreover, for a complete recovery from his qi deviation, other medicines were also needed.
Forget it. She just has to tell him to stay near the cold pond for the time being and wait for her return.
Meng Qi made up her mind and was about to go out when she heard two knocks at the door. Chu Tianfeng’s voice came from outside: “Meng Qi, are you going to go with Elder Lu’s reinforcement team?”
“Mm.” Meng Qi answered casually.
“Open the door.” Chu Tianfeng knocked again.
Meng Qi stepped forward and opened the door. Outside her room, Chu Tianfeng and Qin Xiumo were standing side by side.
“Why are you here?” Meng Qi frowned at Qin Xiumo, who had appeared so casually.
“I am a friend of Fentian Palace’s young master. Why can’t I be here?” Qin Xiumo smiled. His gaze crossed Meng Qi’s shoulder and fell into the room.
Inside, Xiao Qi was lying lazily on the bed. After hiding away the characteristics of a demon race, he looked no different from ordinary spirit beasts of Three Thousand Worlds. Except that his age was still too young, practically made him useless as a spirit beast companion.
Sensing Qin Xiumo’s gaze, Xiao Qi raised his head and looked back casually.
Across Meng Qi’s back, one human and one tiger looked at each other.
Qin Xiumo remembered Chu Tianfeng’s previous words. This little white tiger was probably Meng Qi’s precious pet. “Are you going to take him?” He asked Meng Qi.
“I’m afraid it won’t do.” Meng Qi shook her head, “Young master Chu should have also heard about it. This time, demon cultivators are involved. They must be very powerful. Elder Lu is also injured.”
“Ao-” Xiao Qi, who had barely made a sound after Meng Qi brought him back, suddenly stood up from the bamboo bed.
“Eh?” Meng Qi turned around.
“Ao-” Xiao Qi called again. After a brief thought, he simply kicked his hind legs and rushed towards Meng Qi.
“Hey, be careful!” Meng Qi hurriedly stepped forward and hugged the little tiger. “You also want to go?” She asked, a bit hesitant.
Xiao Qi should understand her words. He was lying in Meng Qi’s arms, his head tilted. Then, seemingly a little embarrassed, he reached out his tiny paw and gently put it on Meng Qi’s shoulder.
It looks like that he is… acting cutely?
Finally finished! This is all for this week, wait until Tuesday to see how Meng Qi handles a certain tiger’s cute act. Enjoy!
