“Meng Qiqi, are you finished?” As soon as Meng Qi opened the door, Sikong Xing jumped in front of her: “I’m waiting for you to have lunch.”
With her cultivation level, Sikong Xing no longer needed to eat. However, the cuisine of Three Thousand Worlds was famous even in the other two realms. Sikong Xing often heard about it in the Demon Realm. Now that she was here, of course she had to go and have a feast.
“Meng Qiqi.” Sikong Xing took Meng Qi’s arm affectionately, “Where are we going next?”
“I want to go back to Fentian City.” Meng Qi said as she looked up. Chu Tianfeng and Qin Xiumo were still standing under a tree in the courtyard. Su Junmo sat on a stone bench, murmuring endlessly as if he was being bullied by the other two.
“Afterward, I will depart for Xingluo City.” Meng Qi asked: “What about you?”
“Of course I’m going with you.” Sikong Xing replied cheerfully: “I am unfamiliar with Three Thousand Worlds, and I don’t know anything. Wherever you go, I’m accompanying you.”
“Aren’t you going to find your mother?” Meng Qi asked.
“Yes, yes.” Sikong Xing nodded vigorously, “but I don’t know her identity or whereabouts, so it’s fine to follow you. Maybe I can meet her on the way.”
Meng Qi: “…”
“Meng Qiqi.” Sikong Xing took her arm, “I only know you here…”
“Sikong Xing.” Su Junmo disagreed, “Don’t you also know me?”
Sikong Xing pretended to be deaf. She spoke cheerfully as she took Meng Qi’s hand and walked out. “Anyway, I am free. I heard that you are going to attend the Medical Cultivator Conference. Let me go too. We don’t have a specialized medical sect back home, so I have never seen so many medical cultivators in one place.”
“Sikong Xing, did you lie to me before? It wasn’t your father who asked you to come to Three Thousand Worlds, but you sneaked here to play?” Su Junmo chased the two girls. “Did something really happen to your father?”
The figures of three, alongside Su Junmo and Sikong Xing’s arguing voice, drifted farther and farther.
Chu Tianfeng and Qin Xiumo exchanged a glance.
“My injury is not healed yet.” Qin Xiumo said unhurriedly, “I can still follow her.”
Chu Tianfeng punched the tree trunk next to him. What excuse could he make? This was the case last time in Qingfeng Valley. He couldn’t find a suitable excuse and had to go home in dejection.
“Heh—” Qin Xiumo threw him a glance, then turned around and strode to chase the other three. The internal injuries caused by the qi deviation last time had not yet been completely healed, and it would take some time before he could finally be promoted into the Nascent Soul stage. But Qin Xiumo wasn’t in a hurry. He could recover slowly, and it would be best if Meng Qi didn’t do anything so he could slowly drag on for another half a year.
“Qin Xiumo.” After eating, Meng Qi went to the Beyond The Heaven relay station. Besides the Blazing Feather and that mysterious jade slip she got at the auction, she also ordered several medicines. “After we return to Fentian City, I will treat your injuries first.” Meng Qi said. “Afterward, we—”
“What about the jade cicada vine?” Qin Xiumo asked quickly. “Didn’t you say you were going to take some jade cicada vines? You don’t need it anymore?”
“I’ll accompany Meng Qiqi.” Sikong Xing smiled brilliantly and held Meng Qi’s arm. “I heard it is a place where ancient powerhouse fought fiercely, so nothing could grow there except for jade cicada vine. I also want to go and have a look.”
Qin Xiumo: “…”
For a long time, Qin Xiumo couldn’t say anything.
Chu Tianfeng glanced gleefully. This guy could no longer cling shamelessly, right?
When Meng Qi and her group departed for Huajiang Manor, they were with Xue Chengxuan and his two colleagues. When they went back, there was an extra Sikong Xing, which made the journey more lively.
On their way back to Fentian City, the group rode Su Junmo’s flying artifact. It was Sikong Xing’s first time coming to Three Thousand Worlds. She was curious about everything, so she stuck to Meng Qi and asked many questions along the way. Being in a good mood after obtaining the Blazing Feather, Meng Qi patiently answered her questions.
“So the Medical Cultivators Conference is a grand gathering of medical cultivators from all four realms in Three Thousand Worlds. Then why does Xingluo City host it?” Sikong Xing asked. “You just said that Xingluo Pavilion is a very influential sword sect in the Eastern Realm, right?”
“Yes.” Meng qi nodded. “Xingluo Pavilion Master promised the medical society that he would enter the Starfallen Sea for ten years. In exchange for the right to host the Medical Cultivators Conference this year, he will hunt various monster beasts and spiritual plants that can be used as medicinal ingredients.”
“Wow!” Sikong Xing’s eyes widened: “Starfallen Sea! This pavilion master is truly amazing!”
“Yeah.” Meng Qi raised her eyebrows and smiled, “Right? You think so too.”
“There is a legend in our Demon Realm.” Sikong Xing hugged her knees and sat down beside Meng Qi. Su Junmo’s flying artifact was not slow, and the wind blew upon her red dress and long hair. In Sikong Xing’s bright eyes, her gaze became somewhat distant.
“No matter how powerful a celestial demon is, once they fall into the Starfallen Sea, none of their bones or soul would remain.” Sikong Xing turned at Meng Qi, moved closer, and whispered: “I heard my father say that the Demon Monarch’s disappearance this time is rumored to be falling into the Starfallen Sea.”
“Sikong Xing!” Su Junmo was furious. “Do you believe in that nonsense?”
“I don’t believe it.” Sikong Xing replied: “But the rumor is spreading everywhere. At this moment, even the most elite guards who served the Monarch are trapped in the Seventh Heaven. The Demon Monarch Order has yet to appear, and every force begins to show their ambition.”
Su Junmo: “…”
This time, Su Junmo didn’t refute Sikong Xing. He frowned and looked at the distance. He was also very confused. The Lord wasn’t disappearing, nor was he seriously injured as the rumor said. Su Junmo himself even met him before but couldn’t feel the Lord’s existence in the entire Demon Realm.
The Demon Realm was indeed very chaotic right now. What is the Lord thinking?
Why doesn’t he go back?
Su Junmo’s mind was in a messy state. He no longer bothered to argue with Sikong Xing, yet he also didn’t dare to directly question the Lord.
