This is the first part of today’s sponsored chapters.

Meng Qi closed the door and entered Beyond The Heaven with the jade slip in her hand. Xue Jinwen’s courtyard gate was closed, and Meng Qi was about to contact Xue Jinwen via the nameplate when she saw Xiang Linmo walked towards her: “Fellow Daoist, are you here to find third Miss Xue?”

“Fellow Daoist Xiang.” Meng Qi nodded in greetings.

“She said she has an urgent business and won’t be able to come to Beyond The Heaven temporarily. Before leaving, she left something and asked me to give it when you come to find her.” Xiang Linmo took out a brocade bag and handed it to Meng Qi.

“Thank you.” Meng Qi marked the bag with her spiritual consciousness.

“Third Miss Xue said it will arrive tomorrow at the latest.” Xiang Linmo smiled slightly at Meng Qi. “I hope it won’t delay your business.”

After a pause, Xiang Linmo asked: “Have you heard about the Medical Cultivator Conference? I wonder if fellow Daoist will also attend?”

“Yes.” Meng Qi replied.

“That’s great.” Xiang Linmo suddenly smiled. He cupped his hands at Meng Qi. “I heard that the first-rate medical sects from the four realms would attend this conference. The decennial Grand Tournament for young medical cultivators will also be held as scheduled.”

Xiang Linmo looked a little embarrassed: “I’m also going to participate. I don’t know about third Miss Xue and fellow Daoist, but if we see each other in Xingluo City, I hope fellow Daoist can spend some time to chat over the wine.”

Meng Qi smiled slightly: “Alright.”

“That’s good.” Xiang Linmo clapped his hands excitedly, “At that time, I will also invite third Miss Xue. See you later in Xingluo City.” The man cupped his hands again, then turned around and went back to his courtyard.

Meng Qi also turned around and walked towards the teleportation array that would take her back. So it turned out that she really visited Beyond The Heaven. But why did she feel that besides asking sister Xue’s help, something else also happened?

Meng Qi walked in a daze. On the Profound floating island, there were still many cultivators from various sects waiting for the ‘rabbit’ to come. But other than that, everything seemed so quiet, nothing unusual.

Maybe she was confused by her drunkenness. Meng Qi raised her head and looked at the sky above. Several islands floating on top of one another, each was larger than the one below. At the highest point, the largest island that also seemed to be different than the others was floating leisurely on the other side of the sky above Beyond The Heaven City, keeping some distance from the remaining six floating islands. It looked so majestic and free.

Meng Qi shook her head again. She must be confused by the wine. After stepping into the teleportation array, some jumbled images suddenly flashed into her mind. Cloud waterfall, bamboo groove, tall sky, and the warm and powerful embrace of a white-robed man… But those images flashed too fast. They ran through Meng Qi’s mind and disappeared before she could catch anything.

She returned to her room at Ruyi Inn and stared dazedly at the jade slip in her hand.

Why did she have the feeling that….after she was drunk, she seemed to dream of her master?

Ah! And it was a very realistic Master!

He sternly refused to admit her as his disciple. Even his tone was so realistic. Like he did whenever he insisted that he wouldn’t be her master, despite all the things he taught her.

Meng Qi turned over and put the jade slip back into the storage space. The array for refining medicine, the array to assist her cultivations, and all kinds of spell… Anything he knew, and that was within Meng Qi’s comprehension, he would teach her. He never laughed at her ideas as whimsical, and instead would think it together with her and did his best to turn the ideas into reality.

She knew why Master didn’t want to recognize her as a disciple. It must be because her cultivation talent was so bad. Master was a peerless genius whose ability could pass through heaven and earth. Of course he didn’t want to accept a stupid disciple whose even Golden Core breakthrough has to be assisted.

But it’s okay. She remembered the time and place she met Master. Before that day came, she would train very hard and would no longer make him feel ashamed again.

In her previous life, she also used so many of Master’s spirit stones and precious materials. In this life, she would return them all.

Meng Qi cheered up instantly. Full of energy, she opened the door.

Qin Xiumo was still waiting outside. He stared at Meng Qi, looking up and down: “Something happened?”

“Yeah.” Meng Qi gave him a glance and answered vaguely. Qin Xiumo owed her so many spirit stones, and was selling himself to pay off his debts. She didn’t have an obligation to explain her private affairs to him.

Qin Xiu’s face became cold: “Where are you going now?”

“Where are you going?” Before Meng Qi could answer, another room in the courtyard suddenly opened. Before his figure could even be seen, Su Junmo’s voice has flown out first: “Coincidentally, I’m also free today. Since this is your first time in Fentian City, let’s go take a stroll together. If you need my help, don’t need to be polite. I will gladly help you.”

Qin Xiumo’s face darkened even more. Even Meng Qi’s calm expression turned ugly. The two looked at each other, and in a rare moment, had a tacit understanding.

  1. Lmao her master refusing to be called master because master-disciple romantic relationship is forbidden in cultivation realm?

    Speaking of which, despite being most likely the ML, we still dont know his actual name, just master or xiao qi lol
