Even facing such accusations, there was nothing Meng Qi couldn’t say. She indeed knew the name of the immortal devouring vine from Su Fox. But when she met this chattery fox in her previous life, he had been injured by the vine for ten days, and couldn’t even maintain his human form. What Meng Qi saw was a fluffy five-tailed white fox. Su Junmo had fallen into a coma at the time, and could only lay on the ground motionless. Dark red blood and mud dirtied his long white fur, making him looked weak and pitiful.

Meng Qi couldn’t get any information from the unconscious white fox. She only smelled the lingering faint floral fragrance in the air. The scent was a bit peculiar but somewhat familiar. It was the smell of the forest after the rain, mixed with the sweet fragrance of white peaches, and the bitter taste of pine leaves. In addition, there was also a faint bittersweet aroma of charred sugar. That kind of smell was actually very relaxing and didn’t make people sensed any danger.

Meng Qi had examined the unconscious Su Fox, but found nothing except for the wound on his body. At that time, the chattery fox had already equivalent to a Spirit Severing cultivator and was even stronger than his current self. It was impossible for him to fell into such a state just because of skin trauma.

She pondered hard for a long time before finally remembered a description in a book she once read about a similar floral fragrance. At that time, she had not met her master yet, and most of her knowledge came from Qingfeng Valley’s Library Pavilion. Besides, she also read various bamboo slips she bought from Cloud Immortal Pavilion with the spirit stones she saved. All of them could be shown to the people here.

Facing Lu Qingran, Meng Qi smiled indifferently: “In Cloud Immortal Pavilion, we can buy three bamboo slips for two hundred first-grade spirit stones.” She paused for a moment, “They are: ‘Record of Demon Method,’ ‘Qingfeng Town Materia Medica’ and ‘Demon Realm’s Scenery.'”

Meng Qi took three bamboo slips from her storage bracelet. They were very ordinary books she bought from Cloud Immortal Pavilion. Because the books only wrote about local specialty and travel notes instead of spell or such, they were sold very cheaply. Even ordinary disciples in Qingfeng Valley could easily buy them after doing several elementary tasks.

Lu Qingran was startled. Chu Tianfeng waved his hand, and the three bamboo slips flew to her.

“Although Qingfeng Town is small, it is located at the border between the Eastern Realm, the Demon Realm, and Devil Realm. There are cracks in the boundary from time to time, allowing demon and devil cultivators to cross the border. So it isn’t strange that some books written by locals will have information about demons and devils. This book writes that the Demon Realm has a strange vine with flowers of various colors growing. The vine is extremely dangerous because it sucks other living being’s flesh, blood, and spiritual aura for its nourishment. After being injured by the vine, the body would exude a strange fragrance. It was as sweet as white peach and as bitter as pine and charred sugar.” Meng Qi said slowly.

Lu Qingran was speechless.

Meng Qi’s expression remained unchanged, and she calmly continued, “This one records the experience of a great senior who once entered the Demon Realm. The senior mentioned seeing a green vine that can bloom multi-colored flowers, and use the body of monster beasts as a nutrient to grow itself. It was an abnormal and dangerous monster. The flowers emit a bitter and sweet fragrance, like sugar and pine, and people should avoid when smelling it.”

Meng Qi pointed to the last bamboo slip: “This book is compiled by the senior who has seen various plants from the Demon Realm. The record is similar to the previous two. In addition, it also mentioned that the monster beasts injured by this fragrant vine will be thirsty and drink a lot of water.”

“Except for these three, there are also several similar books and related records.”

Meng Qi looked at Lu Qingran’s eyes: “When I enter senior sisters’ tent that day, I immediately smell this fragrance. Qingfeng Valley is a medical sect, when I was in the sect, senior sisters mostly only had light medicinal scent on their body, and I never smelled such a scent. So I was suspicious, and after a few inquiries, found out that they were indeed injured by a vine-like weapon, and always feel thirsty and hungry afterward.” She finished her words: “Thus, I suspected that they were injured by the vine described in these books.”

“Even so… “Lan Zhuxuan, who was supposed to soak herself with the five elements blue crane, was still standing in place. She looked at Meng Qi palely, but her eyes were flickering. “How do you know its name? And also the treatment method?” She recalled Xun Yan’s previous accusations and became more and more angry. “Is it also mentioned in those books?”

“No.” Meng Qi shook her head.

“So, you really are lying to us!” Lan Zhuxuan suddenly raised her voice, “You actually don’t know the cure! You…you want to kill us!”

Meng Qi stared at Lan Zhuxuan. She couldn’t tell them that she had once cured a person injured by immortal devouring vine. She, however, could guarantee that the method was correct.

To explain the logic clearly, it would take too much time. But she indeed could tell her thought of process when trying to save that Su Fox and how she reached that conclusion. Thinking of this, Meng Qi couldn’t help but look at Su Junmo again.

At that time, in order to save his life, she tried many methods she could think of, and gave him quite a number of unpleasant experiences. But this chattery fox generally only became noisier when in discomfort, and his endless prattle turned her into the receiving end of the discomfort instead.

  1. Why do the gods favor this woman? she is just a jealous mary-sue who is causing troubles for someone trying to help others…she deserves some hardships…

    1. the last woman isn’t FL

      and to be honest although because of MC’s perspective FL seems like a green/black lotus mary sue, from FL’s perspective that would be MC as well and the things she wants to know more about aren’t ridiculous.
      even from the beginning her personality is the type that’s paranoid of others (as we can see from OG!novel) which isn’t a good thing but maybe this incident is that original one playing out in a different way

  2. God… This.. If Xiao Qi didn’t have the heart of a doctor all of you would be dead by now.
    Meng Qi step down and give them a choice. “If you don’t believe me then don’t. I can only cure the ones that want curing.”

  3. man after such good explanation, they still go at it. If I was MQ i would say “you know what, just forget I tried to help” -_-

  4. Honestly, she just revealed the import “you will die without treatment” bit. So, there’s no harm in the treatment, what’s Meng Qi going to do? Torture them in broad daylight when almost everyone around her outranks her in power.

  5. OMG please tell me she’ll leave that little sect they’re all shit. How dare they accuse her after she tried saving them

  6. Waiting to see how Meng Qi gets out of this predicament. You can do it, girl! ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

    Thank you, Koffean ʕ•ᴥ•ʔノ♡

  7. dem that stupid Lan..still accusing ? while using the treatment created ny Meng Qi?? how shameless..if you don’t want to be cured..get out there..you are wasting resources.. Also, Meng Xiao Qi..makes sure to price her the most… ugh.. so angry..lols

  8. Catsssssss????????????????????

    “Y-y-you want to k-k-kill us!”
    …are you serious? I never knew I could laugh out of anger until now. Never in my life have I met such an entitled people pleaser gaslighter white lotus. I am so glad that I will never have to deal with her special kind of whining in real life.
