As soon as his voice fell, Meng Qi, Chu Tianfeng, and Qin Xiumo were staring at him.
“What? Did I say wrong? Or are you two also from Qingfeng Valley? Chu Tianfeng, aren’t you the Fentian Palace’s young master? I met your dad at the Wanxian Conference three years ago, and we exchanged a few words. Qin Xiumo, aren’t you a disciple from the Southern Realm? What are you looking at me like that? I said Qingfeng Valley stupid, but didn’t say anything about you, don’t be nervous!”
Meng Qi suddenly turned around. “Let’s go.” Her face was rigid, and her steps were quick. She actually didn’t want to accept Su Junmo’s spirit stones that day, let alone allowed him to follow them. Even if others were ignorant, she knew this noisy fox too well!
The torture of his non-stop chattering was really beyond the imagination of ordinary people.
But Su Junmo’s cultivation level was too high. After he stuffed the spirit stone into Meng Qi’s hand, he jumped far away. Meng Qi wanted to catch up and return it to him, but couldn’t keep up with his speed.
Then they saw a five elements blue crane. And luckily, it turned out to be a fourth realm one. Meng Qi and the others were caught off guard, and even Chu Tianfeng couldn’t keep up with the five elements blue crane whose cultivation was one level higher than him. Among the four, only Su Junmo could handle it. Meng Qi acted decisively and didn’t waste time tangling with Su Junmo again. She must kill the five elements blue crane with the Suixin spell. So with the help of Su Junmo, the four spent another day and finally succeeded in hunting down the crane.
Su Junmo indeed helped a lot. He spent money and helped them twice, and he just claimed to be lost. It was really unreasonable to forcibly drive him away. Meng Qi had to let the chattery fox follow them. After that, they returned quickly.
They had actually arrived here for some time ago, right when Lan Zhuxuan was crying to find the sect leader. The four were not far apart, and Lan Zhuxuan didn’t control the volume of her voice. Those accusations clearly fell into Meng Qi and her group’s ears.
Chu Tianfeng’s face became colder and colder.
Qin Xiumo’s eyes glinted sharply, and his natal long sword even has been floating in the air, ready to shoot.
Meng Qi was also very angry. When having a dispute in the sect, it was still alright for Lan Zhuxuan to disregard her. But she shouldn’t slander her like this.
Meng Qi was about to come out to rectify her name. However, no one expected that Elder Xun Yan would suddenly stand up and speak for her. Although his tone was no longer gentle, and somewhat very sharp, the elder’s every word fell clearly on Meng Qi’s ears.
Meng Qi was holding her back against the tree trunk, looking up at the sky through the dense foliage of the forest. Just because there were people like Elder Xun Yan in this world, Meng Qi understood why Elder Yan made the vow to travel the world and save as many people as possible.
The disciples of Fentian Palace finally noticed Meng Qi’s group.
“Elder, it seems to be…young palace master!” A disciple said excitedly: “Young palace master is back!”
Meng Qi walked very fast, with Chu Tianfeng and Qin Xiumo were following on her each side half a step behind. Su Junmo finally closed his mouth. In front of strangers, he was the cold and aloof young man with a high cultivation base and an equally high pride.
Meng Qi soon returned to the camp. Xun Yan brought the disciples of Fentian Palace to greet them: “Is everything going well?” He didn’t mention the commotion that had just happened and first examined Meng Qi up and down: “Did you get hurt?”
“No.” Meng Qi looked at Xun Yan. The corners of her lips curled up in a smile: “Everything is well.”
After Meng Qi finished speaking, she turned her head and nodded towards Chu Tianfeng. The young man stepped forward and took out the fourth-rank five elements blue crane from his storage space. The carcass of a fourth-rank monster beast was very huge, and Meng Qi’s own storage space was too small for it.
“Drain its blood.” She said: “Then collect it in a wooden barrel and let the person who was injured by the immortal devouring vine to soak their whole body in it.”
“Alright.” Xun Yan nodded. Without the slightest doubt, he immediately ordered several disciples to follow Meng Qi’s instruction. He then looked back at Meng Qi with a kindly smile: “Young Daoist Meng has been working hard these few days. You should take a break first.”
“Junior sister Meng Qi.” Before Meng Qi could respond, Lu Qingran’s voice suddenly came from behind. “Please come here.”
Meng Qi turned to look at the other party.
Lu Qingran was standing next to the sect leader, whose complexion was not very good. Lu Qingran stood straight, and there were bravery and righteousness in her eyes. “Junior sister.” Lu Qingran bowed to Meng Qi, “Senior sister has a few questions about the immortal devouring vine, please ask junior sister Meng Qi to answer.”
With Lu Qingran’s words, all the gazes which initially focused on Meng Qi turned at her. Chu Tianfeng and Qin Xiumo were still expressionless, but a trace of disgust flashed in their eyes.
Especially Qin Xiumo, who stared at Lu Qingran coldly. How familiar was this scene? Although he hadn’t fully recovered his past memory, he remembered how he was impressed by the bravery and uprightness showed by Lu Qingran. He was once fascinated by her like this, thinking that she was brave and kind, truly innocent, and never tainted by the world.
Qin Xiumo’s lips raised in a sneer. The real bravery, kindness, and uprightness, should not be like this!
Meng Qi still calm and indifferent. She just glanced at Lu Qingran lightly and said, “Senior Sister Lu, you may.”
