Staying in this place all day long and hoping to find a Seventh Stage Venerable wasn’t easy!
The woman with the beauty mark gazed at Venerable White, and said, “Can you think about it a little and decide if you want to help me support the Jade Lake Realm?”
There was no test about one’s character or any other type of test. It didn’t matter if the opposite party was good or evil, nor how their character was… as long as they were a Seventh Stage Venerable and were willing to accept the duty, the woman with the beauty mark would slowly transfer the control of the core of the Jade Lake Realm to them.
“Help you support the Jade Lake Realm? No, I refuse.” Venerable White refused without a second thought.
“Ah?” Song Shuhang gazed at Venerable White in puzzlement. Earlier, Senior White went through all that trouble to pull out Venerable Lushan Street’s soul and make him sign the contract to become the teapot spirit… didn’t he do all that so that he could find the core of the Jade Lake Realm and take the whole place away?
Why had he suddenly changed his mind?
“What I want is the whole Jade Lake Realm. I’m planning to take the whole thing away… therefore, I don’t want to ‘help’ you support it,” Venerable White added.
After some time… the woman with the beauty mark laughed charmingly. “You are really an interesting fellow. If you think you can support the whole Jade Lake Realm by relying on your strength alone, I don’t have any problem handing the place over to you.”
Although the Jade Lake Realm was built using the ‘illusory reality’ of Seventh Stage Venerables as the foundation, the ancient Heavenly City had later become the way to immortality of the Heavenly Emperor, and was thus very different from ordinary ‘illusory realities’. The surface area of the Jade Lake Realm was very large, and one could forget about supporting the whole place by themselves unless they had the strength of a Ninth Stage Tribulation Transcender.
The woman with the beauty mark was planning to give Venerable White control over the core of the Jade Lake Realm step by step, allowing him to slowly make the whole place his own. Then, after Venerable White had advanced to the Ninth Stage Tribulation Transcender Realm, he would finally be able to control the whole Jade Lake Realm. At that time, by using his strength of the Ninth Stage Tribulation Transcender Realm, he would be able to make the Jade Lake Realm flourish again. The dried up Jade Lake, the bleak prairie, and the wilderness would return to what they were before.
Ah~ that was something that brought back memories of the Jade Lake Realm from ancient times! The beautiful landscape, and the familiar people…
Actually, speaking of familiar people…
After some time, the woman with the beauty mark turned her head around and looked at Song Shuhang. “I felt that there was an old acquaintance… so it was you!”
“No, it can’t be me!” Song Shuhang immediately said. “Calm down and carefully look at my face. You are mistaking me for someone else!”
Song Shuhang still remembered the time that bamboo shoot and small white dragon mistook him for someone else, beating him up for no reason and then saying that they had gotten the wrong person. What a vile turn of events!
“I’m not mistaking you for someone else. It’s definitely you!” the woman with the beauty mark said resolutely.
“But I have no idea who you are,” Song Shuhang said. “I’ve never seen you before!”
“Cheng Lin, you rascal…” The woman with the beauty mark smiled charmingly. “Do you think I won’t recognize you just because you altered your appearance? I would recognize your aura even if you were to turn into ashes!”
“Who is this Cheng Lin?” Song Shuhang asked in puzzlement.
[I don’t know, either. It’s my first time hearing this name,] Ye Si replied inwardly.
[Ye Si, is it possible that you met her while you were using the name ‘Cheng Lin’ as your alias?] Song Shuhang asked. After all, Ye Si got really nervous as soon as she saw that woman with the beauty mark. Therefore, there was definitely some relationship between the two.
[Impossible, my name has a very special meaning to me. Therefore, I wouldn’t use an alias no matter what. In addition, this ‘Cheng Lin’ name doesn’t even ring a bell,] Ye Si replied.
“Cheng Lin?” At this time, the nearby Venerable White held his chin, and said, “Are you talking about that ‘Immortal’ that liked to take selfies? Fairy Cheng Lin?”
The woman with the beauty mark turned her head around and looked at Venerable White. Then, she looked at Song Shuhang again. “Do you still have something to say? Cheng Lin! Even your companion confessed!”
“…” Song Shuhang.
But right at this time, Venerable White added, “Hmm, you misunderstood. That Fairy Cheng Lin you knew is very likely dead already.”
“Ah?” the woman with the beauty mark opened her eyes wide.
“The reason I know her name is because I explored some ancient ruins recently and those ruins happened to be Immortal Cheng Lin’s immortal cave,” Venerable White slowly explained. “Afterward, I found a recording in those ruins. In the recording, I saw another Immortal, whose arms were covered with eyes, barging into Fairy Cheng Lin’s immortal cave. Then, this guy grabbed her by the throat and lifted her up. Then, he squeezed her head until it exploded.”
It was really a sad and cruel story.
“Arms covered with eyes… so it was that guy! Cheng Lin didn’t try to resist?” the woman with the beauty mark asked in a soft voice.
“She didn’t,” Venerable White said calmly.
“That’s not very Cheng Lin-like!” The woman with the beauty mark sighed. Then, she said to Venerable White, “Such being the case, I’m even surer of it. Cheng Lin isn’t that easy to kill! Therefore, the recording you saw must be fake!”
Venerable White shrugged his shoulders. “I’m just telling you what I saw. As for how you want to interpret this information, it’s up to you.”
After saying this much, Venerable White glanced at Song Shuhang. He had to find the time to bring Song Shuhang to Immortal Cheng Lin’s immortal cave. Who knew, perhaps they would obtain some unexpected benefits?
But right at this time, the woman with the beauty mark turned her head toward Song Shuhang with a smile, and said, “My judgment after interpreting that piece of information isCheng Lin, stop pretending!”
Song Shuhang sighed, and said, “We are back to the starting point.”
At the same time, he said to Ye Si, [Ye Si, do you want to come out and meet this black-haired woman?] Song Shuhang felt that there was definitely some relationship between Senior Sister Ye Si and this black-haired woman.
[No, I refuse!] Senior Sister Ye Si readily refused. She got incredibly nervous after seeing this woman with the beauty mark through Song Shuhang. Therefore, she wouldn’t come out to meet her even if she got beaten to death.
“Alright, regardless of me being this ‘Immortal Cheng Lin’ you know of or notwhich I’m pretty sure I’m notthere is nothing I can do if you insist on saying that we are the same person,” Song Shuhang said to the woman with the beauty mark after heaving a sigh.
“Hehe. Cheng Lin, you rascal, you’ve finally admitted it.” The woman with the beauty mark laughed charmingly.
Song Shuhang shrugged his shoulders…Just do as you wish.
With a nod, Venerable White said, “Can we put off this matter related to Cheng Lin’s identity until later? And have you considered leaving the core of the Jade Lake Realm to me? Given your condition, I don’t think you can support this place for long.”
After a while, the woman with the beauty mark said, “Indeed! That’s the reason I’m looking for someone to inherit this place with such haste. I don’t have a problem with leaving you the core. However, there is something I want to do before that.”
“Fine,” Venerable White said.
The woman with the beauty mark turned toward Song Shuhang, and said, “Cheng Lin, just as we’ve agreed, I preserved the Jade Lake Realm for you. Such being the case, it’s now time for you to do what you’ve promised me back then.”
“…” Song Shuhang.
Was he going to bear the consequences of someone else’s actions?
He felt that it was going to be a very troublesome promise!
Therefore, he was unwilling to become the scapegoat!
Venerable White was in deep thought. He had gained some important information from the words of that woman with the beauty mark. From the looks of it, Immortal Cheng Lin was the original master of this Jade Lake Realm…
But right at this time, the woman with the beauty mark stared at Song Shuhang, and said in a gentle voice, “Cheng Lin, kiss me.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen turned her head around and looked at Shuhang.
Venerable White also tilted his head and looked at Shuhang, laughing.
Song Shuhang continuously waved his hand, and said, “Hold on. As expected, I can by no means accept this Cheng Lin’s identity!”
In addition, wasn’t Cheng Lin a fairy maiden?
And this woman with the beauty mark before his eyes should be a fairy maiden as well, right?
Was it really okay for them to do this while having the same gender?
No, wait a moment… thinking of it, even if they were wearing a phoenix coronet and that gorgeous phoenix robe, this person with the beauty mark never said anything about their name, status, or gender.
Was it possible that they were actually a man?
Song Shuhang, who was a seasoned netizen, had learned that it was wise not to determine the gender of a person from their outward appearance.
“Cheng Lin, do you want to break your promise?” The woman with the beauty mark turned her body around, lying on her side and revealing her long and slender white legs from within the phoenix robe, lazily overlapping them.
When matched with her posture, this movement looked extremely charming.
“What I mean is that I’m not really that Fairy Cheng Lin. Even if I kiss you, I won’t be able to fulfill what you two have promised to each other!” Song Shuhang explained.
The woman with the beauty mark rolled her eyes. “Is it going to kill you to give a kiss?”
“It might happen,” Song Shuhang replied.
Speaking of which, it was rather embarrassing.
This was his first kiss… as such, how could he casually give it someone he didn’t even know?
If this woman with the beauty mark turned out to be a man, his first kiss would turn into a life-long nightmare. He would get shivers whenever he thought of it!
“It might happen? Oh, I get what you mean!” The woman with the beauty mark laughed.
She got what I meant? But I just replied thoughtlessly! What meaning did she exactly get from my words?
At this time, the woman with the beauty mark stretched out her hand and gently tapped.
Afterward, that small independent dimension was split into other three smaller but still independent spaces.
Venerable White and Su Clan’s Sixteen were sent into one of the other spaces.
“I have to agree that it’s not too appropriate to kiss me in front of your new sweetheart. In that case, can you kiss me now that I’ve separated you from your sweetheart? Cheng Lin, it’s time to fulfill your promise from back then.” The woman with the beauty mark assumed an even more charming posture and beckoned Song Shuhang over with her finger. “I even did more than what I had to do while fulfilling our promise from back then. The whole basic structure of the Jade Lake Realm is still intact. As such, Cheng Lin, you are not going to break your promise, right?”
“I feel that there is a deep misunderstanding between us,” Song Shuhang said.
“After receiving this kiss and fulfilling the promise, I’ll be able to leave this world without regrets. Are you telling me that you want to break your promise right at the end?” the woman with the beauty mark said bitterly.
“Wait a moment. Can you give me a little more time and let me ask you something?” Song Shuhang had thought of a possibility. “Can you tell me what this Cheng Lin looks like?”
Song Shuhang had a lot of fragmentary clues in his mind, and they were about to link together.
There could be only one truth!
As long as he could get an idea of what Fairy Cheng Lin looked like, he would get to the truth!
