More than that, right? Lin Xuanzhi asked with a deeper meaning.
When he was a child, Wan Yitong once said that he would marry Xiaotian when he grew up. However, for certain reasons, the Wan family ruthlessly annihilated the Bei Family. Bei Shitian almost hates the Wan family to death now. Naturally, he also avoids Wan Yitong, wishing that he had never known him.
In this matter, Wan Yitong really didn’t do anything wrong.
After a pause, Bei Cangmo replied regretfully, Yes, Xiaotian is too decisive. In reality, the Wan family’s actions had nothing to do with Wan Yitong. He was only a teenager at that time. How could he influence the decision-making of the whole family? I ran all the way with Xiaotian and broke into the Five Continents. Unexpectedly, Wan Yitong followed us too. The Wan family has some connections with Esteemed Lan Yue. After taking Xiaotian in as a disciple, Esteemed Lan Yue also accepted Wan Yitong as his disciple.
Lin Xuanzhi nodded. I see. So that’s why I always felt there was something fishy going on between Wan Yitong and Bei Shitian.
It’s not like Bei Shitian was completely unconcerned about Wan Yitong, but he treated him with cold indifference instead.
Wan Yitong’s feelings toward Bei Shitian manifested themselves in even more complicated manners. Sometimes he dearly wished to strangle him to death; he ridiculed Bei Shitian as soon as he opened his mouth, claiming that no one loved Bei Shitian. However, in reality, Wan Yitong obviously cared about Bei Shitian more than anyone else.
Ah, ill-fated relationship.
Lin Xuanzhi took out Lianlian.
Do you recognize this sword? Lin Xuanzhi asked.
Seeing Lianlian, Bei Cangmo answered, This is a double-edged sword found in the great Eastern marshes. Esteemed Lan Yue originally gave this to Xiaotian, then later to you. I’ve also heard from Xiaotian about this matter. Although he’s always on his own and doesn’t talk to people very much, as his elder brother, he’s still willing to tell me when matters come up.
There are currently some problems with this sword, but these problems are not the main point. I just care about how these problems arose.
Bei Cangmo had already sensed the bone-deep murderous intent from Lianlian and could even smell wisps of blood. He also didn’t know how many people one had to kill to change a sword known for its noble and unsullied nature into this appearance that looked like Asura’s path in the human world.
Bei Cangmo’s expression became solemn. He stared at the trembling Lianlian, which wanted to escape from its sheath. Did it become like this in Xiaotian’s hands?
I seldom kill with a sword.
Bei Cangmo couldn’t help gasping. He raised his hand and touched Lianlian’s scabbard.
All of a sudden, Lianlian flew out of its sheath and drew a line on the back of Bei Cangmo’s hand at a speed hard to catch by the naked eye. The blood that fell on the blade was actually swallowed up by Lianlian!
When it wanted to drink blood for the second time, Lin Xuanzhi had already sheathed Lianlian with great swiftness and formed a hand seal to seal it off. His expression was quite fierce.
Bei Cangmo stared at the back of his hand, still dripping blood, and couldn’t speak for a while.
Lin Xuanzhi’s expression was cold. He didn’t expect that Lianlian would actually dare to drink blood right in front of him.
Bei Cangmo took a deep breath, took out a bottle of medicine, applied it to the wound, and waited for it to heal.
He studied at Lianlian with a very complicated expression, Xiaotian often goes out to train and gain experience. I have never followed him. In fact, after coming to Profound Sky Sect, I had much less contact with him. In reality, I’m not a member of the Bei family but its adopted son instead. My mission is not to avenge the Bei family, but to ensure that the Bei family’s bloodline lives on. However, Xiaotian doesn’t think so. He thinks of revenge every day and night. He will not let the Wan family go. As long as he is alive, he will constantly force himself to improve his cultivation. But I didn’t expect that he would commit all manners of crimes and turn himself into this.”
Lin Xuanzhi looked at Bei Cangmo. Bei Shitian has killed too many. It will be easy for him to suffer a deviation on his cultivation path and become obsessed. Moreover, if he kills innocents indiscriminately, he will be contaminated with karma for no reason, and the Dao of Heaven won’t easily let him go either.
Bei Cangmo responded gravely, I’ll find him to better understand the situation. In the future, when he goes out to train, I will follow him.
Lin Xuanzhi nodded and changed the subject, sighing, I just didn’t expect that there would be so many people from the Nine Lands in this small Five Continents.
However, Bei Cangmo was not concerned. It’s not too surprising. After all, there is an untold number of Nine Lands cultivators in similar situations; it is also common for them to go to different smaller realms to train and hunt for treasures.
Lin Xuanzhi nodded, You said earlier that my master has some connections with the Wan family. Who was Master in the Nine Lands?
Bei Cangmo shook his head, I don’t know about this either. Wan Yitong told me this, but when I was in the Nine Lands, I’ve never heard of Esteemed Lan Yue’s great name before. I think it is probably a pseudonym.
Any mention of Bei Shitian’s matter made one feel stifled and gave them a headache, but the matters that could give one a headache weren’t merely limited to this one.
Bei Cangmo came to find Lin Xuanzhi today because he had other things to say.
Recently, that Lin Yurou from your family is very close to Du Qiying. There are many rumors inside Broken Sword Peak. You should pay it some attention. Bei Cangmo warned.
Lin Xuanzhi did hear Lin Yufan mention a few words before, so he didn’t care much, I already know about this matter and I have already sent someone to discourage and warn Lin Yurou, but I can’t help it if she doesn’t listen to advice.
Bei Cangmo narrowed his eyes, You’re just going to let her do whatever she wants? Du Qiying is a man with a fiance, and that person is even a senior martial sister from the same sect. Although Senior Martial Sister has recently gone out to train and doesn’t know what’s happening in the sect, paper cannot contain a fire. It’s not like you don’t know Senior Martial Sister’s temperament either. She will make a ruckus so that everyone knows.
What does this have to do with me? Lin Xuanzhi was ruthless, My relationship with Lin Yurou is not comparable to your relationship with Bei Shitian. All I need to do is to ensure that Lin Yurou does not betray my Lin family’s bottom line. As for the rest, there will naturally be someone to warn her about things she should keep in mind. As for whether she listens or not, that’s her own business.
Bei Cangmo thought for a moment, You’re right.
Bei Cangmo was quite ruthless. He chopped down with a single hand; as a result, Jing Luo didn’t wake up, even when he was about to leave. In the end, Bei Cangmo had to carry the person away.
For Lin Xuanzhi, he didn’t want to bother with Jing Luo’s past actions anymore, but he also didn’t plan to have more contact with him. Although Jing Luo once owed him karma, he had already used his entire cultivation to repay it in the past life!
It had already been a thousand years, so Lin Xuanzhi had become indifferent to a lot of matters. He didn’t want to bother with these matters unless it was a deep hatred.
Not long after Bei Cangmo left, Yan Tianhen came running over.
Dage. Yan Tianhen called Lin Xuanzhi and threw himself into his arms. When I was climbing the mountain earlier, I met that former senior martial brother of yours. He was carrying someone I had never seen on his back.
The person you’ve never seen before is one of my former junior martial brothers.
Yan Tianhen blinked. How come he seems to have been knocked unconscious by someone?
Lin Xuanzhi calmly answered, Senior Martial Brother Bei has a bad temper. That boy accidentally provoked him.
Ah, so that’s it. Yan Tianhen exclaimed with lingering fear, I didn’t expect that anyone with a surname of Bei shouldn’t be provoked.
By the way, Dage, I refined a lot of Hardened Body Pills. Although it took me a little longer, I finally got something. Yan Tianhen’s eyes were bright, full of self-satisfaction.
Duan Yuyang and Yuan Tianwen were indeed correct. As soon as Yan Tianhen had a slight achievement, he would immediately show off before Lin Xuanzhi.
Lin Xuanzhi smiled, My family’s Ah Hen really is incredible. Even in the entire sect, there are very few alchemists who can successfully refine those medicinal pills. If you’re willing to go to Hundred Refinement Peak, you will certainly be valued heavily.
Yan Tianhen received Lin Xuanzhi’s acknowledgment and was naturally delighted. However, he didn’t want to leave Broken Sword Peak.
Although my master seems quite unreliable, his level of alchemy is the best I have ever seen. Moreover, my master is also very attentive to my cultivation and does not hide anything at all when teaching. He is not afraid that I will surpass him. Yan Tianhen felt very fortunate, If it was someone else, it would be very difficult for them to treat me the same way.
Lin Xuanzhi nodded slightly, That’s true.
Yan Tianhen thought for a moment. Dage, what do you think about me bringing Ah Gu up the mountain?
If Yan Tianhen wanted to cultivate the Imperial Corpse Technique, then he must have a corpse to practice it on. Ling Chigu was the first corpse puppet that he refined, and he also entered into a contract with Ah Gu. Thus, it was naturally the most convenient to control Ling Chigu. However, he couldn’t easily let people know about this kind of Imperial Corpse Technique, or else it was easy to cause trouble.
Lin Xuanzhi pondered for a moment, You may as well practice the Yin Flame Palm and Ancient Divine Devil Dance first. The Imperial Corpse Technique can wait until I secretly bring Ah Gu up the mountain.
Yan Tianhen’s eyes lit up, Sneak Ah Gu up the mountain?
Don’t forget that I have a soul plate that can function as a pocket dimension in my sea of consciousness. After I take Ah Gu up the mountain, I will place him on the mountain peak where you hunt, so you can take the opportunity to practice Imperial Corpse Technique every day when you hunt.
Yan Tianhen thought it was a very good method, but he was more interested in the pocket dimension and couldn’t help asking, Dage, you said before that you would let me enter the space to have a look. Can I go and have a look now?
Lin Xuanzhi nodded, Exactly what I want.
A pocket dimension was a tiny invisiblemustard seedin the world. Although it can’t be seen or touched, it always exists.
Although the soul plate was now in Lin Xuanzhi’s sea of consciousness, it was actually in another independent space system. It had nothing to do with Lin Xuanzhi’s body, but at the same time, it had everything to do with it.
Lin Xuanzhi formed a hand seal. A magic seal appeared between his eyebrows. One could see a palm-sized soul plate appear in the light and shadow on Lin Xuanzhi’s palm.
The soul plate had eight corners, with two round holes in the middle, which signified how the sky is round and the earth is square. There were countless lines of Sanskrit engraved on it. If you studied it carefully, you could see the infinitely-compressed mountains and rivers, sun and moon, as well as the morning stars, just like a magnificent picture scroll of mountains and rivers.
However, this was only the soul plate’s appearance, not its spirit.
There was only one spirit within the soul plate, and that was the wisp of soul that had lived in the soul plate for a long time.
Lin Xuanzhi didn’t know the name of the soul. The soul asked him to directly call him Soul Plate.
Yan Tianhen stared unblinkingly at the soul plate and wanted to reach out and touch it, but the soul plate, which was sending out faint fluorescence and spinning slowly over Lin Xuanzhi’s palm, had a kind of icy aura that seemed thousands of miles away.
Yan Tianhen touched the soul plate and was startled by the sudden electric shock the soul plate released.
Dage, what is this?” Yan Tianhen was surprised.
Lin Xuanzhi knew that Soul Plate was playing a trick on Yan Tianhen, so he narrowed his eyes, Go straight in and have a look.
After saying that, Lin Xuanzhi pulled Yan Tianhen’s hand and, with a single thought, the two arrived in a separate space when they opened their eyes again.
Inside the room, the soul plate that was suspended in mid-air also disappeared. Even if someone came in, they would not see anything.
This was the first time Yan Tianhen saw the world inside the soul plate.
This place seemed small but also seemed large.
The sky was a dark blue, incomparably clear and transparent, like a huge crystal, but the ground looked somewhat more pitiful in comparison. It was full of weeds everywhere, which were as tall as people. If it wasn’t for Lin Xuanzhi holding him while flying on a sword, Yan Tianhen estimated that as soon as he came in, he would be submerged in weeds.
