THDP Ch 72 Part 6 – Scheme and Ploy (VI)

“But Meng Qiqi.” Su Junmo turned his head and asked, “Didn’t you afraid that they will attack you in anger?”

“I’m afraid.” Meng Qi said, “So, when detoxifying Xue Lingfeng, I put a protective array made from Four Orders And Four Seasons Array inside the room. I also fed Xue Lingfeng a Ningshen pill, which made her sleep for twelve hours. After that, we just waited for you. The reason they devise this cumbersome plan is because they don’t want to tear their relationship with you, nor do they want to offend Pavilion Master Pei too much. And…” She smiled, “Don’t they still have two other poisoned disciples? I didn’t tell them anything about the array. I think they either didn’t go to Sect Leader Shen, or he simply didn’t tell them anything. Otherwise, Feng Alliance wouldn’t come to me.”

“Tsk…” Su Junmo leaned closer and stared at Meng Qi carefully. He smiled brightly: “Meng Qiqi, you have become cunning!”

“I want to live well and become stronger.” Meng Qi smiled slightly and said with a seemingly joking tone, “There is a person I still want to meet and things I want to do.” She was no longer an ignorant person who only cared about improving her medical skills.

“Good job!” Su Junmo gave Meng Qi a thumb up, “This also vented my anger. Humph!” He paced the room several times. “But Feng Alliance is really hateful. No! I still have to pay them back!”

“Haha.” Su Junmo looked at Meng Qi, “I don’t know who the one behind the scene is, but I suddenly wanted to thank this person.”

The relationship between him and Feng Alliance was not bad. But from the moment First Elder Xue almost harmed Meng Qi without even asking a reason, Su Junmo had been very dissatisfied with them. It was not that he didn’t know how prideful these large sects were, but he didn’t expect it to be this serious. It seemed that the matter of Xue Chengxuan persuaded them to accept Xingluo Pavilion’s proposal to host this year’s Medical Cultivator Conference was not as simple as he said.

Feng Alliance might have a bigger problem.

Su Jun pondered for a moment. He didn’t plan to tell Meng Qi and Sikong Xing about this, but he had to make a report to the Lord.

“I don’t know who it is.” Meng Qi shook her head, “This person should be a cultivator who is good at both medical skills and arrays, and is also dissatisfied with either Feng Alliance or Medical Society Alliance.”

A hundred miles outside Xingluo City, two green mountains towered into the sky, hiding a canyon behind. Daylight hardly reached the canyon. Except for some sparse weeds on the ground, the place was bare.

Lu Qingran sat kneeling on the ground. Her eyes were red. From time to time, she cast a quick glance towards the black-robed man who was sitting cross-legged on the ground.

The man sat with his back towards her, and the black gauzed hat that he usually wore was now placed on his side. From Lu Qingran’s position, she could clearly see three long black scars on the man’s right cheek. She didn’t know which weapon caused the scars, which looked very deep and narrow, stretching from the man’s forehead to the back of his ear.

Even after so long time passed, there was no sign of healing.

The man’s body suddenly stiffened. With three scary scars, his face distorted, and he looked extremely terrifying.

Lu Qingran quickly retracted her gaze and nervously grabbed the hem of his robe.

“Hah.” The black-robed man exhaled. A large area of weed in front of him, which was already sparse enough, instantly withered. In no time, they turned into black ash and dissipated with the wind.

Only then did the man’s body relaxed again. He grabbed the gauzed hat and turned to look at Lu Qingran, who was shrinking in fear.

“Get up.”

Lu Qingran quickly raised her head, then slowly stood up.

“Ah!” She softly exclaimed. The man’s slender and pale but powerful fingers suddenly pinched her jaw tightly, forcing her to look up at him.

“Why are you so nervous?” He stared into her eyes. “Didn’t I told you when I caught that Xue little girl? I’m merely adding some fun to their little gathering and won’t take anyone’s life. You didn’t save that Xue little girl, but dared to go behind my back and released that Canglang Academy’s disciple…” His strength wasn’t small, and Lu Qingran’s body was almost lifted by him. “If there is another time.” His voice was cold to the bone, “I will grab that pretty boy back and slowly tear him into pieces before your very eyes.”

Tears instantly fell from Lu Qingran’s eyes. She desperately trying to shake her head. “I won’t dare! I won’t dare anymore! Please let me go!”

“Humph!” The man snorted again, “You better remember my warning.” He let go of his hand and let Lu Qingran fall to the ground.

The girl’s beautiful eyes were red, and there were also two shocking red marks on her tender jaw. But she didn’t dare to cry too loudly, for fear that she would anger this man again.

Since…since their departure from Huajiang Manor, this man’s originally unusual character had become more and more unpredictable.

The man turned around and looked in the direction of Xingluo City. His eyes flashed with bloodthirsty excitement: “Didn’t that Meng Qi wants to participate in the Medical Cultivator Conference, and also want to join Feng Alliance? Hahahaha….” He sneered, “I will never make her so happy, let alone get her wish! That group of prideful old men in Feng Alliance must be hard-pressed now, and has no time to care about such a small cultivator like her. Hahahaha…” He burst into laughter.

Having laughed enough, he turned around and said to Lu Qingran: “Now you follow me into Xingluo City. I will find people to disturb the conference tomorrow. And you…remember the method I taught you. You must detoxify those people well. I want to make the whole Medical Cultivator Conference and Meng Qi lose face! Hahahaha!”

Translator’s note:

At this point, I started to feel pity for this duo. Like, their level of failure is already a Team Rocket-style…
