Meng Qi suddenly blushed. Although she could confidently say to had never done anything that couldn’t be shown to the public, it didn’t mean that she wouldn’t be embarrassed. Especially the time she spent with ‘Yun Qingyan’ inside the illusion, had everyone also seen this? Was her attempt at Yun Qingyan known by so many strangers?!
Meng Qi’s cheeks instantly turned bright red. Her long eyelashes quivered slightly. How embarrassing! So many people saw her saying that she wanted to become Yun Qingyan’s disciple, only to be turned down every time.
Very embarrassing indeed…
“Meng Qiqi?” Sikong Xing was about to continue speaking when she suddenly noticed Meng Qi’s strangeness. Sikong Xing was startled; did she say something wrong?
“No-nothing…” Meng Qi stammered.
Sikong Xing didn’t believe her. Her face flushed so much, and yet she said it was nothing?!
Sikong Xing turned her head in puzzlement and turned at Su Junmo and the others: “What’s wrong with Meng Qiqi?”
“It’s really nothing!” Meng Qi muttered.
Never mind! Since others had known, there was nothing she could do anyway! Yun Qingyan was powerful, gentle, and excellent. He patiently guided her and never mocked her whimsical and childish ideas. She didn’t believe that others would feel nothing when they met such a wonderful man like Yun Qingyan, and wouldn’t have the same thoughts as her!
“Meng Qiqi…” Now even Su Junmo looked at her suspiciously, “Are you perhaps…”
Chu Tianfeng and Qin Xiumo exchanged a look and saw a touch of surprise in each other’s eyes. They all saw how Meng Qi and that Ji Wujiong got along at the sea of devil aura. One refused to leave and never gave up on the man. The other was powerful and arrogant, but clearly protected the woman at any cost.
The two fought side-by-side in the trials, lived together day and night, and overcame life-threatening situations together. Did nothing really happen between them?
In the beast house inside Meng Qi’s storage space, even the little white tiger narrowed his eyes slightly.
Meng Qi actually… blushed?
Only Xue Jinwen looked at Meng Qi with a smile. In her opinion, Meng Qi was a person with a firm heart and lived unrestrainedly according to her belief. So what if Ji Wujiong was an arrogant man who dared to come to provoke the entire Medical Society Alliance on his strength alone? Meng Qi could like whoever she liked.
“No!” Meng Qi’s cheeks were still flushed, but she shook her head repeatedly and insisted: “I’m fine!”
Now, even Sikong Xing felt something was wrong with Meng Qi. However, she didn’t continue to ask. “Later, we saw you heal Ji Wujiong, and then he destroyed the sea of devil aura. After that, the powerful senior…Senior Lin Yan’s voice appeared and said that she wanted to take you as her disciple, but you refused.”
“I see.” Although Meng Qi didn’t regret her choice, there was still a pang of pain in her chest.
“Oh, right!” Sikong Xing said again, “Before Ji Wujiong woke up, the medical cultivators in the Apricot Forest were afraid of your safety and wanted to do something to assist you. Many of them tried to pass you their life-saving spells, saying that as long as you can return, even if you were in your last breath, they would definitely use the power of their entire sect to save you.”
“I see.” Meng Qi was startled, and a warm feeling flowed into her heart. Although she didn’t see it herself, she could imagine the scene at that time from Sikong Xing’s vivid description.
She knew that Ji Wujiong’s words were nonsense. The majority of cultivators who embarked on the road of medicine were gentle and kindhearted, and would never let someone die without trying to give a helping hand.
Just like Senior Lin Yan.
Just like Elder Yan Mingfeng.
Just like these medical cultivators who never knew her before and probably would never have the slightest intersection with her in the future.
“Everyone was really worried at the time. Even Su Junmo couldn’t help but attack the barrier along with your two friends over there…” Sikong Xing pointed her jaw at Chu Tianfeng and Qin Xiumo. “There are also Sister Xue and the Xingluo Pavilion Master…everyone tried to destroy the barrier, wanting to save you.”
“Xingxing.” Xue Jinwen smiled, “You were the first to rush up.”
“Ah, that because I was so scared!” Sikong Xing shook her head and continued: “Then Ji Wujiong woke up, and you two safely passed the final test.”
“I see.” Meng Qi nodded. The heat on her face finally subsided, and she silently looked at the people in the courtyard. Seeing that no one mentioned Yun Qingyan, Meng Qi secretly sighed in relief.
She reached out her hands and hugged Sikong Xing: “Thank you, Xingxing. Thank you, everyone.”
Although Meng Qi had just returned from twelve days of test with a few near-death experiences, she felt very warm and didn’t feel tired at all.
“Ah, right.” Sikong Xing broke the hug, “Meng Qiqi, have you successfully formed your golden core?”
“Yeah.” Meng Qi nodded and wiped the nonexistent sweat, “It’s really not easy! I thought I would need at least one year!” She added: “In the future, I will no longer drag you too much!”
“Bah, bah!” Sikong Xing shouted, “What’s holding back?! Meng Qiqi, you are super awesome, don’t you know? Let me tell you, all the medical cultivators in the Apricot Forest were completely shocked by you! Even that Feng Alliance and its four clans didn’t dare to speak!”
“It’s because of Senior Lin Yan.” Meng Qi replied. Even if she had successfully broken through, she was just a Golden Core cultivator. Although her self-protection ability improved slightly, it was still not enough in Three Thousand Worlds, and she still needed to work harder.
“Meng Qiqi.” Qin Xiumo called, “What happened afterward? After Lin Yan says you can be her friend, we couldn’t see you anymore.”
“Ji Wujiong and I walked eastward, found the exit, and left the barrier.” Meng Qi looked at Qin Xiumo and asked: “Nascent Soul stage?”
“Yeah.” Qin Xiumo nodded slightly.
Meng Qi looked at the young man whose eyes were as dark as the night sky itself. After Qin Xiumo recovered from his internal injuries in the previous life, she remembered that he began to cultivate like a madman. Soon, the name ‘Little Devil Lord’ became known by Three Thousand Worlds cultivators. Later, he returned to the Southern Realm with only a sword in his hand, successfully taking his revenge on his former best friend, purging the enemies, and brazenly taking control of the entire sect.
According to the timeline, shouldn’t Qin Xiumo be cultivating madly at this moment? How came he had time to go to Xingluo City?
According to Sikong Xing, he also joined the others trying to save her. Therefore, she would remember this kindness.
Meng Qi hesitated for a moment. She was not short of spirit stones now, should she perhaps…
