Chapter 29 – It’s hard to escape the Omegaverse trope!

Chapter 29


Two days before the premiere of “Mountains and Rivers,” Tang Xiyan’s talent show, “One-Tenth,” also premiered its first episode. Although Fang Yingying and Tang Xiyan’s interaction wasn’t part of the main broadcast, it was included in the behind-the-scenes footage, instantly making it the number one trending topic.


Some people thought it was just an attempt to gain attention, but most believed that Fang Yingying was just helping out subconsciously. To avoid more contact, she had only lightly touched Tang Xiyan’s waist with two fingers, which looked rather cute. Moreover, despite not being a great dancer, she surprisingly had a contagious singing voice.


On the second day of the premiere, a fan page was created for her, complete with an official Weibo account, and even the fan club’s official colors and slogans were chosen.


Fang Yingying’s Weibo gained tens of thousands of followers overnight, which, while not a huge number, was quite impressive compared to other contestants.


After the premiere of “Mountains and Rivers,” Qu Di officially left his job with Tang Xiyan and immersed himself in scriptwriting. He had initially planned to bid farewell to Tang Xiyan when he left that day, but when he arrived at her home, he found it empty and had to send her a message before leaving.


“I’m back,” Shu Yi would always inform Qu Di if he was coming home for dinner.


As soon as he entered, the aroma of food greeted him. After changing his shoes, he went into the kitchen to find Qu Di busy cooking.


Qu Di turned around. “You can change into something comfortable. You’ve come back just in time for dinner.”


Shu Yi didn’t move. He walked over to check and asked, “Is there any need to change? I’ve been in the studio all day. Is there something delicious tonight?”


Qu Di gestured for him to take the soup to the dining table. Shu Yi washed his hands and came to help. He glanced at the dishes, all of which he liked. However, he remembered mentioning wanting to eat “mouth-watering chicken” last night. Qu Di had claimed he didn’t know how to make it, but tonight it appeared on the dinner table.


“I smell mouth-watering chicken,” Shu Yi remarked.


Qu Di felt a little guilty. Truthfully, he hadn’t made it himself. He had attempted to cook it, but failed because he didn’t want to waste the entire chicken he’d eaten for lunch. So, he had bought ready-made food from the supermarket for dinner.


“You wanted to eat it… I tried making it,” but he trailed off, swallowing the rest of the sentence. He would make it perfectly next time.


After they sat down to eat, Shu Yi automatically served the rice. He took a piece of mouth-watering chicken for himself. After savoring it, he asked, “This tastes familiar.”


Qu Di had no choice but to confess, “Actually, this is from the supermarket’s prepared foods section.”


Shu Yi paused for a moment, then chuckled. “I thought so. I often eat from there. No need to feel embarrassed. I don’t have to eat what you cook.”


Qu Di served him a piece of lotus root. “I’m learning to make it. I’ll get it right next time.”


Although he had been in the kitchen many times from childhood to university and had often cooked for Yang Ji, the truth was that his culinary skills were only passable. He could make simple, everyday dishes, but for anything slightly more challenging, he had to consult cooking tutorials. Fortunately, he had more free time now. Besides concentrating on writing the script, he had plenty of time for other things. They did household cleaning only when they had spare time, and Shu Yi helped. The house was a bit messy, but it was still relatively clean.


After dinner, Qu Di pushed Shu Yi to take a shower while he cleared up. They had a dishwasher, so there was no issue of who would do the dishes.


Once Shu Yi returned to his room, he received a call from his brother-in-law, Lu Huayan. His smile vanished instantly. It was the first time he didn’t want to answer Lu Huayan’s call, but he eventually picked up.


Lu Huayan said, “We’ve found the person, and everything is arranged. We’re just waiting for the status on your end of things.”


Shu Yi remained silent for a moment before saying, “I understand.”


Lu Huayan sensed that Shu Yi seemed emotionally distant, as they hadn’t contacted each other for two weeks due to their busy schedules.


He cautiously asked, “Is it…?”


Shu Yi quickly interrupted him, “No.”


“I just need a bit more time; he hasn’t given me the finished product yet.”


In truth, Shu Yi hadn’t inquired about it during this time. He had pushed the matter aside, letting himself get immersed in it temporarily.


“…If you don’t want to do it, just let me know at any time. Shu Yi, I don’t want you to do something you’ll regret.”


He hung up the phone and sat on the bed, lost in thought. Suddenly, he noticed a book on the table: “A Thousand Words of Love: Guide to Romantic Phrases.” He picked it up and flipped through it, finding some notes inside.


The first page: “Why are you so impulsive, suddenly crashing into my heart.”


He thought this phrase was good and had even marked it in red.


He had bought this book on a whim back then, rushing through it to say a few words on the night of the meteor shower. He had forgotten it all afterward. Although TV dramas had sets of romantic lines, in reality, Shu Yi couldn’t say a single one.


He had only read this book a few times. After realizing it was of no use, he had abandoned it. Since being together, they hadn’t needed any special effort. Just being together quietly, even if they were leaning against each other to watch an old movie, made time pass by sufficiently.


Lu Huayan probably guessed. Shu Yi was hesitating. The determination he had back then had disappeared, and lately, he had often dreamt that Qu Di was as he had expected, oppressed by him and looking at him in despair before turning and leaving.


He woke up with a racing heart, feeling like he had lost something important. Even in the middle of the night, he went to Qu Di’s room, sitting on the floor and silently watching the person on the bed, hoping to find a sense of security and reassure himself that it was just a dream. Qu Di was still with him. He returned to his own room only as dawn approached.


He had considered giving up, but every time he thought of Shu Man, he felt that his kindness toward Qu Di was shameless. He had easily fallen into that useless love, becoming cowardly and uncertain.


“Why haven’t you gone to shower yet?”


Qu Di appeared at the door, holding sliced fruit and a cup of floral tea. Shu Yi quickly hid the book under the pillow.


“I was thinking about something, got a little distracted. I’ll go now.”


“Then, have some fruit first. The apples today are good; I bought a few.”


After they both showered, they watched a movie together. Shu Yi sat behind Qu Di, and they sat on the couch with the air conditioner on


They could be considered respectful to each other, but the emotions seemed to come so suddenly, just a movie could make them lose control, and the pheromones in the air grew stronger.


Alpha’s voice was magnetic, “If you were an Omega, you would definitely smell my pheromones out of control.”


Qu Di lowered his head and dared not move, “Actually… actually, I can smell it a bit.”


Shu Yi first paused, then smiled and asked, “What does my pheromone smell like?”


Qu Di raised his head, and his eyes turned slightly red due to shyness.


“Peppermint, it’s a very fresh peppermint scent.”


“You… really can feel it?”


In principle, Betas in the world shouldn’t be able to sense pheromones, but research shows that some more advanced Beta individuals can slightly sense them, although they are not affected by them. Such Betas account for only 0.5% of Betas. He didn’t expect to have one right in front of him.


Qu Di nodded.


“I didn’t expect to pick up a treasure.”


He kissed Qu Di’s soft cheek, pushed him away, and Qu Di hurriedly picked up the small blanket that had fallen to the ground.


He looked at Alpha, who was about to go upstairs, and asked, “Where are you going?”


Shu Yi helplessly looked at himself, “I’m going to take a shower.”


“I can help you…” For some reason, this sentence just blurted out without thinking, and he was also surprised after saying it, but he didn’t deny it, just stood there waiting for Alpha’s response.


“I don’t want to inconvenience you.”


By the time Qu Di came to his senses, the movie’s plot had already progressed to the next day, and the male and female leads woke up in the sunlight.


In the living room, there was only him left, but he couldn’t help but smile, with no embarrassment of being rejected.


In the bathroom, Shu Yi was lost in thought. He suddenly wanted to know what Qu Di’s scent was like, whether it was as soft and sweet as it looked.

Chapter 29 – Most eligible widow-bachelor in the six realms

Chapter 29


Si Lan and Haowei hurriedly made their way to Baixiang Garden. As they approached, they heard a melodious tune resonating within the courtyard.


“Behind the red gates, a young lord leans gracefully, sipping wine from a jade goblet.”


The voice was as smooth as water, gentle and pleasant, resembling a woman’s, yet more enchanting than one.


Si Lan and Haowei squeezed through the crowd and saw the courtyard adorned with lanterns, casting dancing shadows. Taoyuan, dressed in a red wedding gown, had a delicate and slender figure. His movements were graceful and tender, as if he were on a stage. With half-closed eyes, he sang a song with an absentminded look.


“Ask the music-loving lady and her lord, love and anger make a perfect couple. The young lord flees with flushed cheeks, the lady dances, enchantingly and smiling…”


The song seemed to narrate the first encounter of Taoyuan and Peijia.


Peijia leaned against the wall, watching as the lovely Xiao Lian sang the song next door. He teasingly asked if Xiao Lian was a man or a woman, and Xiao Lian playfully scolded him as her husband, which sent Peijia running in a fluster.


Peijia slowly reached out his hand towards the singer, his arms trembling slightly due to excitement. He embraced Taoyuan and choked out his name.




But Taoyuan seemed oblivious to his words, continuing to sing intermittently.


“Taoyuan, I’m Peijia. Look at me…”


Peijia called Taoyuan softly, but Taoyuan remained in a dazed state, showing no response. Peijia looked at Si Lan with teary eyes. “Doctor Si, what’s happening to him?”


Si Lan approached Taoyuan, placing his hand on Taoyuan’s Baihui acupoint, and realized that Taoyuan’s body was now under the control of a strong obsession.

That was a lingering obsession of Taoyuan that persisted even after his death.


Previously, Taoyuan’s body had been overtaken by impurities, preventing this obsession from entering his body. Later, Si Lan eliminated all the impurities near the General’s Mansion, allowing this obsession to regain control over Taoyuan’s body.


Si Lan didn’t respond to Peijia’s question. Instead, he asked, “General Pei, what is the song that Taoyuan is singing?”


“It’s ‘Playing with Peijia,'” Peijia replied with a moment of melancholy in his expression. “It’s a song Taoyuan composed himself to commemorate our first meeting.”


Si Lan frowned, realizing that Taoyuan’s obsession was related to their initial encounter. Resolving this obsession might briefly restore Taoyuan’s consciousness. Perhaps only Taoyuan’s words could make Peijia accept the fact that Taoyuan was already gone.


“Be careful,” Si Lan warned.


While Si Lan was deep in thought, Haowei suddenly grabbed his elbow.


In the next instant, a surge of malevolent energy rushed towards them, causing everyone to be knocked down by the energy, screaming in fear. The malevolent energy swept through the crowd and swiftly took Taoyuan’s body as if it were lightning fast.


Si Lan, followed by Haowei, immediately used their magic to chase after the malevolent energy. In the distant sky, a massive black cloud of malevolent energy roiled, and once Taoyuan’s body was absorbed into it, it quickly disappeared.


Si Lan entered the malevolent energy, and in an instant, everything turned black, with no visibility. Si Lan swiftly used his techniques to dispel the rolling malevolent energy, clearing the sky.


However, Taoyuan’s figure was nowhere to be seen.


“He went back,” Haowei said in a low voice and turned back.


Si Lan followed him without hesitation. As they got closer to the General’s Mansion, he felt the familiar malevolent energy again.


This cunning demon knew that the most dangerous place was often the safest!


Haowei landed in the General’s Mansion’s backyard, with Si Lan landing behind him.


The courtyard was overgrown with weeds, the walls were dilapidated, and the cold moonlight cast eerie shadows, making the surroundings appear sinister. It seemed to be an abandoned garden.


Si Lan spoke in a hushed tone and stepped forward, asking, “Are you sure it’s here?”


“Yes,” Haowei replied.


Si Lan concentrated and carefully observed the surroundings.


Tattered pieces of burial paper rustled in the night wind, a wooden door lay on the threshold, and the room was half bathed in moonlight, half drowned in shadows. Cobwebs swayed from the ceiling, and dust covered the floor, giving the appearance of nothing unusual.


But just as he turned to leave, he suddenly struck a palm at the person hidden behind the door crack.


The person had hidden their form, thinking they were safe when Si Lan turned away, but they were taken by surprise and struck by Si Lan’s palm.


The person grunted and quickly transformed into a black mist, trying to escape.


Si Lan, however, accurately seized the essence of that black mist with his hand. A cry of pain came from within.


“My lord… It hurts…”


The black mist gradually dispersed, revealing a man in white clothes with black hair. The man’s neck was still being held by Si Lan, and he was gasping for breath, his expression distorted and his face red from choking.


Si Lan released his grip, and the man in white clothes immediately clutched his throat, gasping for air.


“My lord, you were quite ruthless,” he complained.


Si Lan was astonished that the intruder causing chaos in the General’s Mansion was none other than Song Ye, who had been paralyzed for over a hundred years.


Si Lan gritted his teeth and looked around.


Then, another person, presumably realizing that they could no longer hide, revealed their form and silently approached Si Lan.


“I greet my lord,” Song Cheng said, with no signs of embarrassment at being caught, and he made a respectful bow.


Si Lan was getting increasingly furious. “What are the two of you doing here?”


“My lord, we came to the General’s Mansion to remove the Dayong Curse,” Song Ye explained after catching his breath.


“Oh, I see. So why were you sneaking around and not willing to meet me?” Si Lan asked.


Song Ye glanced at Song Cheng as if they were coordinating their stories, but Song Cheng seemed unwilling to continue the deception and said, “We seek your forgiveness, my lord. The Dayong was released when Song Ye and I were fighting, and we accidentally broke the seal on it.”


Song Cheng explained that while they were pursuing each other, they had reached Dayong Mountain. During their fight, they inadvertently shattered Dayong Mountain, which released Dayong. After realizing the gravity of the situation, they followed Dayong into the human realm and arrived at the General’s Mansion.


For the past few days, they had been hiding in the General’s Mansion, trying to find a way to break the Dayong Curse. When they sensed Si Lan’s presence, Song Ye suggested concealing their presence and acting discreetly.


After all, if Si Lan found out that the malevolent creature causing havoc in the human realm was released by them, he might have executed them immediately.


Song Ye had no reservations but was concerned about his brother. After all, his brother was deeply fond of Si Lan.


Thinking of this, Song Ye closed his eyes and looked desperate. “My lord, it has nothing to do with my brother. It was I who inadvertently broke the seal on Dayong Mountain.”


Song Cheng, with an expressionless face, continued, “My lord, it’s not his fault. It’s my recklessness; otherwise, Dayong wouldn’t have been released.”


“No, it’s my mistake. It’s all my fault. It’s because I couldn’t control my sword for a moment that I accidentally split Dayong Mountain open.”


Si Lan watched the touching scene of these two brothers, who usually had a poor relationship, now fighting to take responsibility when trouble arose. He wasn’t sure whether to be moved or angry.


These two brothers were always like this, having a strained relationship in their daily interactions, but once something happened, they would compete to shoulder the blame.


Si Lan was about to speak when Haowei, who had been silent all along, suddenly said, “The Dayong matter has nothing to do with them.”


Song Ye looked at Haowei, not knowing who this mysterious figure with the veil was, but upon hearing him speak in their favor, his face immediately lit up with a smile. He was about to express his gratitude, but then Haowei added coldly, “Their cultivation is too low to break the seal on Dayong.”


Song Ye remained silent.


For some reason, Si Lan felt an inexplicable trust in Haowei’s words. Relieved that it wasn’t his two subordinates’ fault, he still maintained a stern expression and asked, “Where is Taoyuan, and why did you capture him?”

Song Cheng cast a spell, and Taoyuan’s physical body gradually appeared, hovering in mid-air.


At this moment, Taoyuan had closed his eyes, his face pale, but his cheeks were unusually red, like a human puppet.


Song Ye explained, “My lord, we suspect that Dayong was summoned by him after his death. That’s why we wanted to capture him and force him to break the curse.”


Si Lan glanced at Song Ye but didn’t confirm or deny it. He walked to Taoyuan and noticed that the lingering obsession inside him was gone.


Perhaps it had been frightened away by Song Ye, or perhaps its time had expired.


The obsession could enter the physical body, but the time it spent inside was limited, and the presence of excessive Yang energy around the body prevented the obsession from entering.


“You two…” Si Lan sighed. “You’re becoming bolder and bolder.” If he hadn’t received a message from the Heaven-Sent Monkey Spirit to come to the mortal realm to investigate, they might have continued hiding it from him.


While they hadn’t directly released Dayong, they should have informed him as soon as they discovered the malevolent creature wreaking havoc in the mortal realm, rather than keeping it hidden due to fear of punishment.


If their actions caused harm to the mortal realm, both Si Lan and they would be held accountable.


Song Cheng immediately knelt and bowed, apologizing, “My lord, I was wrong in this matter. Please punish me.”


Song Ye looked at Song Cheng, hesitated for a moment, and reluctantly knelt as well, saying, “My lord, you can punish me.”


“Don’t worry,” Si Lan said sternly, “Both of you will face punishment, but for now, return to the Demon Realm. Each of you will receive 100 lashes and be banned for three years.”


“My lord, can we stay by your side and serve you until the Dayong curse is lifted, and then we’ll accept our punishment?” Song Cheng raised his head, his eyes slightly red, pleading.


Song Ye heard his brother’s plea and added, “Yes, my lord, we can assist you in any way you need.”


“You shouldn’t think you can make amends by helping. Even if you manage to lift the Dayong curse, you will still face punishment when you return,” Si Lan warned. While he generally didn’t get angry, when he did, it was not easily appeased.


Song Cheng, upon hearing this, immediately thanked Si Lan, and Song Ye pursed his lips, following his brother’s lead in apologizing.


At this moment, Peijia heard the commotion in the backyard and led a group of servants to investigate.


When he saw Taoyuan, Peijia rushed over, embraced him tightly, his eyes filled with obsession. “Taoyuan… Taoyuan… How can this happen? Lord Si Lan, why has Taoyuan fallen asleep again?”


Si Lan explained, “General Pei, don’t worry. Lady Taoyuan will wake up again.”






“That’s good, that’s good,” Peijia muttered, seemingly lost in his own world, where only Taoyuan existed, and there was no one else.


“General Pei, the Yin energy is strongest at the third quarter of the night,” Si Lan said. “At that time, Lady Taoyuan may wake up again. But it would be helpful if you could recreate the scene of your first encounter, which could stimulate her consciousness.”


The lingering obsession in Taoyuan had been singing “Playing with Peijia” repeatedly, suggesting that it was deeply attached to their initial meeting. If Peijia played the role of the young man on the wall, it might trigger the obsession and awaken Taoyuan.


“Alright,” Peijia responded, and he quickly left with Taoyuan in his arms. His attention never strayed from Taoyuan, and he seemed to have not noticed the two extra people who had appeared suddenly or perhaps noticed them but was too preoccupied with Taoyuan to question who had taken Taoyuan’s body away.


Si Lan watched Peijia’s distraught appearance with mixed feelings. Once Taoyuan’s consciousness returned, he and Peijia would be separated again.


However, if they didn’t wake her up, Taoyuan’s body and obsession wouldn’t remain in the mortal realm for long, and sooner or later, they would have to deal with the situation of separating the two lovers.


Peijia instructed his servants to set up a simple stage in the inner courtyard, repaint the walls, and plant green bamboo to recreate the scene of their first meeting.


When the third quarter of the night arrived, Taoyuan, who had been lying in bed, slowly sat up. His eyes seemed clouded, unfocused, and lacked expression.


He walked to the stage, swaying his slender figure, and gently waved his sleeves. His voice was as clear and melodious as pearls and jade.


“At the vermilion gates, under the carved window, Peijia leans against the par4p3t…”


However, it seemed that Taoyuan hadn’t seen Peijia leaning against the wall. He continued singing the song, seemingly oblivious to Peijia’s presence.


Peijia descended from the wall, his eyes red, and his lips quivering slightly. He stared at Taoyuan, who remained unresponsive, seemingly unaffected.


“Taoyuan… Please, stop singing,” Peijia suddenly embraced Taoyuan from behind, his back slightly hunched, his chin resting on Taoyuan’s shoulder. “Please, stop singing…”


Peijia closed his eyes and a tear rolled down his pale and sunken face.


Taoyuan still didn’t react to him until the lingering obsession finally left his body and fell into Peijia’s embrace.


The steward asked, “Lord Si Lan, what’s going on? Why hasn’t Lady Taoyuan awakened?”


“The lingering obsession of Lady Taoy


uan doesn’t seem to be related to their initial meeting,” Si Lan said, furrowing his brows. He couldn’t understand why Taoyuan had been singing the song commemorating their first encounter repeatedly.


Peijia, looking at Si Lan, with a hint of despair in his eyes, said, “What should we do to save Taoyuan now?”


“Find the root of her obsession,” Si Lan said. “So, General Pei, you need to carefully think about what in that song could be Lady Taoyuan’s obsession.”


Peijia raised his head, his lips curled in a self-deprecating smile. “Alright, allow me to think about it carefully.” He then carried Taoyuan and walked toward the Lakeheart Pavilion, focused on his beloved, with no attention spared for the two unexpected figures in the courtyard.

The servants each returned to their rooms, and Si Lan and his companions also retired to their quarters.


After the commotion, everyone felt a bit exhausted. However, due to the influence of the Dayong curse, they were both fatigued and unable to sleep, their bodies feeling extremely uncomfortable.


Si Lan rubbed his temples, trying to ease his headache, while still wrestling with the matter of Taoyuan. “We did nothing wrong. Why can’t we resolve that lingering obsession?”


Haowei looked up at Si Lan and calmly stated, “That General Pei’s words can’t be trusted.”




“Those affected by the Dayong curse have unstable Qi, their spirits are weak, and they appear fatigued. However, General Pei maintains stable Qi and doesn’t show any sign of fatigue. He should be the one who summoned Dayong.”


Only the person who summoned Dayong remains unaffected by the curse.


Haowei had noticed General Pei’s unusual condition when he first saw him. At that time, he believed it was due to General Pei’s profound inner energy and robust physical strength. However, after another day had passed, it was impossible for even a healthy human body to maintain such stable Qi after two days without rest.


Si Lan asked, puzzled, “Can a living person like Pei summon Dayong? I thought only the lingering grudges of the deceased could do that.”




Si Lan contemplated, “I remember you said that Taoyuan was trapped to death by someone. Is General Pei trying to seek revenge for Taoyuan?”


“Or perhaps he wants to make the entire mortal realm pay the price for Taoyuan’s death.” Haowei’s voice turned cold.


Si Lan’s heart sank. He realized that they couldn’t delay any longer. Their immediate priority was to awaken Taoyuan and break the Dayong curse.


Taoyuan’s lingering obsession still lingered near his body. Si Lan planned to capture that obsession to understand what it was fixated on.


So, Si Lan, Haowei, and the Song brothers discreetly concealed their presence and, as if they were thieves, approached the Lakeheart Pavilion.


Inside the room, General Pei was applying powder to Taoyuan’s face.


“I know you love to be beautiful, even when you’re asleep, you can’t slack off.”


After General Pei carefully applied the powder, he leaned down and meticulously painted Taoyuan’s eyebrows. When he made a mistake, he reached out to wipe off the makeup expertly.


“I promised you in the past that I would paint your eyebrows for you every day. Now I’ve fulfilled my promise. But what about you? You said you wanted to stay with me for a long, long time, didn’t you?”


General Pei touched Taoyuan’s cheek gently, his eyes filled with deep affection.


“Is your lingering obsession staying for him?” He? Who was he?


The four eavesdroppers in the room were puzzled. They wanted to hear more but General Pei fell silent. He simply held Taoyuan’s hand tightly, and his body remained motionless, like a statue.


Si Lan cast a spell, causing General Pei in the room to fall into a deep sleep. Then, Si Lan and Haowei stealthily entered the room, while the Song brothers were left outside to stand guard.


Though the Song brothers initially considered joining the action inside, they refrained from doing so as they thought about the time when Song Ye had faked a disability. He had feigned it for a hundred years, deceiving Song Cheng into doing his work for him. Song Cheng couldn’t help but clench his teeth when he remembered it.


However, Song Ye, who always seemed carefree, now wanted to talk with his brother. He used his elbow to nudge Song Cheng and asked, “My lord seems to trust that man with the veil.”


Song Cheng ignored him.


Song Ye saw the change in his brother’s expression and continued, “My lord, if that man is the same one you found on Mount Quansha, what do you think?”


Song Cheng’s expression stiffened, and he glared at Song Ye. His eyes were fixed firmly on his brother, who was standing very close.


“Song Ye, if you do anything foolish, don’t involve me.”


“Brother, if it makes you happy, I don’t mind killing him for you, right away.”


“Song Ye, if you continue to do foolish things, don’t drag me into them.”


“Brother, why pretend to be so virtuous? Do you know what happened to my lord’s three consorts? I’m sure you understand better than anyone…”


Song Cheng’s face gradually became tense as he heard this, and he stared at Song Ye intensely.


Song Ye smiled nonchalantly, “I want my brother to be happy. If you don’t want that person to approach my lord, I’ll kill him immediately.”



Inside the room, General Pei had dozed off beside the bed.


Si Lan performed a secret technique, and above Taoyuan’s physical body, a wisp of Taoyuan’s lingering obsession floated. It carried the memories Taoyuan didn’t want to forget.


Si Lan and Haowei simultaneously reached out for the obsession, and the next moment, they saw the scenes held within.


Before the break of dawn, Taoyuan was already practicing on a dilapidated stage.


At this time, Taoyuan’s face appeared slightly young, with undeveloped features, but his figure was slender and graceful, exuding a hint of femininity.


He twirled his sleeves, swayed his body, and sang slowly, “Gazing upon the distant Qí, where the green bamboo is lush and dense. The gentleman there, he works on himself, as if carving and polishing, as if cutting and grinding…”


He sang with great enthusiasm but didn’t notice there was someone lying on the par4p3t.


The clear and melodious voice woke General Pei, who was rubbing his temples. His face still carried the remnants of


 a blush, as if he had just woken up from a drunken stupor.


Listening to the tune in the courtyard, General Pei couldn’t help closing his eyes, crossing his legs, and occasionally nodding in appreciation.


Si Lan hadn’t expected that General Pei also had such a carefree and playful side. Just as he was feeling surprised, the song ended, and he saw General Pei turn his head, his gaze fixed on the figure on the stage.


Although the two were separated by some distance, General Pei looked closer and squinted his eyes, asking, “Young lady, what song are you singing?”


At this time, Taoyuan had disheveled hair, was dressed in a colorful dress, and his facial features hadn’t fully developed yet, making it hard to distinguish his gender. Upon hearing General Pei’s question, Taoyuan felt embarrassed and raised his head, glaring at General Pei.

Later, Taoyuan, for some unknown reason, raised his eyebrows slightly and deliberately deepened his voice, saying, “Good husband, the title of the song I just sang is ‘Qí Ào’.”


It’s unclear whether General Pei was startled by the term “good husband” or the sudden change in Taoyuan’s voice, but he stumbled and fell from the par4p3t, then hastily fled.


Seeing this, Taoyuan couldn’t help but cover his face and chuckle.


Si Lan, upon seeing this, couldn’t contain his laughter either.


General Pei had tried to flirt but ended up being teased instead.


Across the room, Haowei heard Si Lan’s laughter and glanced at him through the black veil.


The second scene depicted by the obsession was the troupe leader holding a thick stick, similar to a baby’s arm, and repeatedly striking Taoyuan.


Taoyuan knelt on the ground, his delicate body jerking with every blow, but he refused to admit that he had stolen the jade pendant.


General Pei, as usual, was sunbathing on the par4p3t when he saw the scene of Taoyuan being beaten. He immediately leaped into the courtyard, taking the stick from the troupe leader.


“Why are you beating him?” General Pei asked.


“This rebel stole my jade pendant, hid it in his room, and won’t admit it!” The troupe leader recognized General Pei, as he was the eldest son of General Pei. He had no choice but to explain.


General Pei asked with a cold face, “Is it the jade pendant carved like a big cabbage?”


“Yes… Master Pei, how do you know about it?”


General Pei chuckled and pointed to a little actor in the corner, saying, “I was sunbathing on the par4p3t, and I saw him sneaking into Taoyuan’s room with a cabbage-shaped jade pendant.”


As General Pei finished speaking, the little actor’s face changed instantly. He quickly knelt down, begging for mercy. The troupe leader became furious and began beating him with a broom.


For a moment, everyone in the theater troupe’s room was focused on the troupe leader and the actor who was begging for mercy.


Only General Pei watched Taoyuan, who was still kneeling on the ground.


General Pei helped Taoyuan up, but Taoyuan blushed slightly and avoided his touch, thanking him with a lowered head.


After this incident, General Pei and Taoyuan’s relationship grew much closer. To express his gratitude, Taoyuan made soup for General Pei.


General Pei opened the porcelain bowl with excitement. However, when he saw that it contained meatball soup with radishes, his expression changed for a moment, but he still smiled and finished the soup.


In truth, General Pei hated two things in his life: radishes and meatballs.


But General Pei knew that this was the best thing Taoyuan could offer him.


Their friendship from their youth blossomed quickly, and they became the closest of friends, sharing every aspect of their lives despite being from entirely different worlds. Thanks to a par4p3t wall, they were closely connected.


Unfortunately, these good days didn’t last long. The Pei family was summoned back to the capital by the Holy Yu family.


Before leaving, General Pei found Taoyuan and brought a jug of wine. He poured it for Taoyuan, saying, “This wine is remarkable. Drinking it will strengthen your body. You’re so thin; you should have more nourishment.” Seeing Taoyuan’s skeptical expression, he added, “Even my elder brother, who has been bedridden for many years, can get up and take a few walks after drinking it.”


Taoyuan chuckled and broke his abstinence from alcohol that night.


In his drowsy state, Taoyuan heard General Pei say, “I really want to take you with me to the capital. The snow in the capital is beautiful.”


Taoyuan reached out to touch General Pei’s face and fell into a deep sleep.


When Taoyuan woke up, General Pei was already gone. In a rush, Taoyuan ran outside, leaving behind one of his shoes. He didn’t care about it and chased after the Pei family’s procession.


Fourteen or fifteen-year-old General Pei rode a black steed, his back straight, tall and imposing. He led his family out of the city gates.


Taoyuan only managed to give General Pei one last glance.


Upon returning to the theater troupe, the troupe leader noticed Taoyuan’s bloodied and mangled right foot. He couldn’t help but sneer, “Young Master Pei has returned to the capital, where there are many beautiful actors and handymen. Do you think he’ll remember who you are?”


Taoyuan kept his head down and said nothing.


“Your Highness, someone is approaching,” suddenly, Song Cheng’s voice echoed from outside.


Si Lan immediately withdrew his hand, and the current scene stopped abruptly.


A group of people had arrived, including some practitioners. Si Lan didn’t want to cause trouble, so he pulled Haowei’s arm and disappeared back into their room.


Song Cheng and Song Ye also returned using magic.


The initial scenes that the obsession revealed were mostly consistent with General Pei’s previous account. However, it was unclear what was wrong, preventing Taoyuan’s obsession from awakening?


Furthermore, the “he” mentioned by General Pei remained a mystery. Who was he referring to?


In those brief scenes, there didn’t seem to be anyone particularly significant.


Si Lan was perplexed and turned to Haowei. “Chongwei, did you discover anything?”


Haowei was about to respond when a strange bell suddenly rang outside, echoing with an eerie tone, filling the air above the General’s Mansion.


It was a soul-binding bell.


Si Lan and the others rushed outside, following the strange bell sound, which led them to the Lakeheart Pavilion. There, several servants were gathered at the edge of the lake.


In front of the Lakeheart Pavilion, several practitioners stood with their eyes closed, shaking the soul-binding bells in peculiar postures.


Inside the Lakeheart Pavilion, through the official yellow beaded curtains, they could faint


ly see several practitioners. Using a thread as a medium, they sent layer after layer of white light into Taoyuan’s body.


General Pei was left outside the pavilion, clenching his fists and staring intently at what was happening inside.


Seeing this, Si Lan and the others attempted to step into the Lakeheart Pavilion but were stopped by the elderly steward.


The steward explained awkwardly, “Doctor Si, the practitioners are performing a ritual. Please refrain from disturbing them. Please don’t misunderstand; it’s not that the General’s Mansion doesn’t trust your medical skills. The General’s Mansion had previously issued a notice, inviting renowned doctors from all over to treat the Madam’s illness. These practitioners just arrived and claimed they could help, so the General allowed them to perform their rituals.”


“Ah, I see,” Si Lan nodded and looked at the practitioners ringing the bells in front of the Lakeheart Pavilion, noticing a few familiar figures.


Despite their disguises, Si Lan still recognized them as the men who were discussing General Pei and Taoyuan at the teahouse yesterday.


Si Lan’s expression grew serious, and he asked the steward, “Are the identities of those practitioners reliable?”


“They are reliable; they are all disciples of the Xuanling Sect,” the steward replied.


Si Lan fell into thought, and then Haowei suddenly spoke in a low voice, “This is the art of necromancy.”


“So, they aren’t planning to revive Taoyuan but turn him into a puppet?” Si Lan inquired.


“Yes,” Haowei confirmed.


Si Lan was about to speak up to stop them when he heard voices coming from inside the room.


“General Pei, he’s awake!”


General Pei immediately rushed into the room, and Si Lan and the others followed suit.


Inside the room, incense wafted through the air, and the beaded curtains swayed. The person lying on the bed had eyes that slowly moved, as if they had lost focus. After a while, those eyes settled on General Pei.


General Pei couldn’t help but grip Taoyuan’s hand, and his chest trembled involuntarily with excitement.




The person on the bed had a pale face, and at the corner of their lips, they murmured, “Am I asleep?”

Chapter 89 – Specialised at treating infertility

Chapter 89 – Specialised at treating infertility


Jian Luo’s heart tightened. 


This topic forced him to reminisce about the one and only intimate encounter he had with Lu Shifeng. Truly, don’t be fooled by Lu Shifeng’s usual aloof demeanor; that time, his passion burned like an unquenchable fire, as if devouring a sumptuous meal.




It was only that one time.


Since then, General Lu had put on a completely different facade. It was as if that night had never happened!


Jian Luo choked back his words, “Maybe, I don’t want to.”


“How is that possible?” Aya glanced at him, her tone slightly teasing. “Men always want it, especially if they’ve crossed that line, unless…”


Jian Luo’s curiosity was piqued. “Unless what?”


Aya smiled mysteriously. “Unless there are certain… performance issues.”


Jian Luo’s eyes widened in shock. For a moment, his survival instincts were stronger than Aya’s, and he hastily interrupted her, “Aya!”


Aya stared at him, puzzled. “Lolo, what’s wrong?”


Before Jian Luo could respond, he noticed someone standing at the door. He focused his gaze and saw that it was Lu Shifeng, who had just returned, accompanied by a leader. It seemed that trouble had a knack for finding them.


“…” Jian Luo’s scalp tingled. “When did you guys get back?”


Lu Shifeng gave him a nonchalant glance but remained silent.


Jian Luo felt incredibly uneasy under Lu Shifeng’s gaze and silently prayed that the boss hadn’t heard anything. It’s not like he couldn’t perform!


The leader behind them cleared his throat, attempting to ease the awkward atmosphere. “Esteemed guests, today I’d like to show you around our base.”


Jian Luo quickly took over the conversation, standing up. “Sure, that sounds great.”


Anything to avoid standing here looking foolish!


Lu Shifeng asked, “Have you eaten?”


“Huh?” Jian Luo blinked, then slowly realized and somewhat guiltily admitted, “Oh, I forgot.”


The food here didn’t look particularly appealing, but it smelled delicious. Perhaps it was due to being a breakfast menu with simple choices. Jian Luo glanced at Lu Shifeng, confirmed there was no objection, and began to eat. It wasn’t because of anything else but the fear of upsetting the magnetic field. It wouldn’t be good if this food was harmful to little dragons.


The leader and Aya left to eat separately to avoid disturbing their meal.


Jian Luo looked at Lu Shifeng and asked, “Dragon brother, are you hungry? Would you like to have something?”


“No need,” Lu Shifeng replied as he sat beside Jian Luo. He glanced at Jian Luo meaningfully. “I can endure.”


Jian Luo’s movements stuttered, and he almost choked on his food.


Was he bluffing or did he actually hear it?


This was getting tricky.


They finished breakfast with Jian Luo’s heart pounding, but he unexpectedly discovered that despite the unappetizing appearance of the fauna and flora here, the taste was quite good. It was just like the normal Earth food he used to eat. In fact, with a bit of responsibility, the taste might even be better.


It seemed that even with the highly restored soil of the Dark Star, it couldn’t completely replicate the ability to nurture Earth’s seeds to perfection.


After the meal, the leader and Aya returned.


Aya asked Jian Luo, “Lolo, where do you want to visit the most?”


“The energy stones,” Jian Luo replied without hesitation. “I want to see how they are manufactured. Is that possible?”


Aya seemed surprised but still replied, “Of course.”


Lu Shifeng, naturally, had no objections, and neither did the leader. After all, something like the production of energy stones was not meant to be kept secret.


The group arrived at the energy stone mine, and as they approached, the heat grew more intense. People and armored vehicles were constantly shuttling back and forth, transporting stones in and out. There were nearly ten openings emitting hot air.


The leader explained, “We rely on mining minerals as a source of energy to maintain the daily needs of our protective shield.”


Jian Luo furrowed his brow. “How much manpower is required daily?”


The leader didn’t expect this question but answered honestly, “If we calculate it realistically, I would estimate that more than half of the men are needed, with the rest engaged in hunting, excluding women and children.”


Jian Luo nodded in understanding.


Since the interior of the energy stone mine was heated, it was not convenient to enter directly, so Jian Luo tactfully didn’t ask to go inside.


While touring the base, he spotted a school. Jian Luo pointed and asked, “Is that where the students study?”


“Yes,” the leader replied, glancing at it. “Children study there until they are old enough to work.”


Jian Luo furrowed his brow. He had already figured out the current situation on this planet. It was incredibly challenging to develop here, even less prosperous than Earth in the 21st century. What limited their development was the environment.


In ancient Earth history, there were five thousand years of uninterrupted development without magnetic field interference. If they wanted to free up resources, the first thing to tackle was the magnetic field issue, even though it was a difficult problem to solve.




As they continued walking, Jian Luo accidentally bumped his foot on a stone slab, causing a sharp pain.


Lu Shifeng, who was nearby, frowned. “Watch your step.”


“Okay,” Jian Luo replied.


He wanted to continue walking but found that the pain from the injury persisted. So, he chose to stand in place and wait for the pain to subside.


Lu Shifeng simply lifted him horizontally.


Jian Luo exclaimed in surprise and instinctively hugged Lu Shifeng’s neck, fearing that he might fall. He also added, “I’m quite heavy.”


“So what?” Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow. “Even if I’m not ready, I can still carry you.”


Jian Luo blushed a little and averted his gaze. “I didn’t say that.”


“Hmm,” Lu Shifeng drawled. “After all, I know best whether I can or cannot carry you.”


Jian Luo chose to ignore that comment.


In reality, he didn’t really doubt Lu Shifeng’s ability to carry him. The General’s strength was truly astonishing, and in retrospect, Jian Luo wanted to give himself a pat on the back for still being alive.


But this brought up another question. Jian Luo asked, “What happened to you that night? You seemed really scared.”


Lu Shifeng, holding him like a featherweight toy, casually replied, “Dragon mating season.”


Jian Luo choked and shivered. “Do you have a fixed mating season?”


Lu Shifeng said, “Yes.”


Jian Luo breathed a sigh of relief.


“So, it happened before you became a dragon,” Lu Shifeng continued, a hint of amusement in his eyes. “After that, it never occurred again.”


Jian Luo blinked. “Did you… count the days until you could become a dragon?”


Lu Shifeng walked slowly, responding, “Dragon transformations aren’t determined by age but by the time you first engage in sexual activity.”


Jian Luo choked again.


That was incredibly hard to guard against! It wasn’t as if he could easily enter a mating period, right? 


Trying to console himself and not display everything on his face, Jian Luo glanced at Lu Shifeng, who seemed to be aware of his thoughts.


To tease Jian Luo for his morning grumbling, Lu Shifeng leisurely remarked, “According to the books, during the first eight months of pregnancy, it’s best to avoid strenuous activities. If you have any desires…”




Jian Luo hastily interjected, “I don’t have any desires!”


Due to his excitement, his voice unintentionally carried, and the leader walking ahead turned around curiously, observing Jian Luo.


Jian Luo’s face turned crimson. He couldn’t explain, but not explaining was also not an option. Unfortunately, the curiosity of the group persisted as they continued to stare.


“What are you all looking at?” Jian Luo’s voice was small, filled with embarrassment, as he buried his face in Lu Shifeng’s embrace. “Can’t we chat about something else?”


A faint smile tugged at the corner of Lu Shifeng’s lips.


The group finally arrived at the school, which was quite large. Each classroom could hold sixty to seventy children, and there were several such classrooms. Next to the school was the base’s breeding facility, where various animals were raised—likely for reserves. In case external circumstances prevented hunting, these animals would serve as the primary food source.


Jian Luo noticed a peculiar phenomenon and remarked, “You have a lot of children here. It seems the birth rate is quite high on this side.”


In their paradise, the birth rate was low, and even the school couldn’t fill all the seats.


The leader responded, “In our base, pregnant husbands always give birth to twins.”


Jian Luo widened his eyes. “Is it a probability issue, or is it always like this?”


“It’s always like this,” the leader replied and, as if to provide proof, pointed to the nearby breeding area. He said proudly, “The animals we raise here also have a high reproduction rate. Of course, our casualty rate is not low either. Gathering energy, hunting—there are sacrifices every day. And these animals in the breeding facility come and go daily as well.”


Jian Luo found it unbelievable. Based on what he knew, the birth rate of their species shouldn’t be that high. Was it due to natural selection, or was it because of the magnetic field? Was it a result of their species’ unique physiology, or did it apply to Earth’s surviving species after the magnetic field changed? If it was the latter, did this magnetic field have some kind of enhancement?


Jian Luo subtly turned his head to glance at Lu Shifeng.

Chapter 6 – The Capital (3)

       After Qin Yun took a shower, he looked at his back in the bathroom mirror for a long time. As Shen Zhuofan said, although the area of ​​the mental mark was large, the colour was too light, and even after looking at it for a long time, he couldn’t see what it was.

       “But this is a bit too big.” Qin Yun muttered. He gestured and found that the size almost occupied the entire back. He reluctantly looked closer for a long time, “It seems… there are wings?”

       Eagle? Qin Yun thought about it and put on a loose T-shirt. As he wiped the water from his hair, he passed by the living room and suddenly saw a figure from the corner of his eye.

       Qin Yun’s hand holding the towel froze on his head.

       Xi Zhao frowned impatiently, “Are you a woman? You take so long to take a bath.”

       Qin Yun: “…” Who is this guy? Damn it! Is he really someone great?!


       When Qin Yun returned to the bedroom after brushing his teeth, Xi Zhao had already claimed the only bed, holding an ‘antique’ phone while reading a novel. Qin Yun was almost blinded by the oversized rhinestone KITTY cat on the mobile phone case.

       “…” He took a deep breath and pulled the quilt, “I’m going to sleep.”

       Xi Zhao stared at the phone screen without raising his head, “Sleep.”

       Qin Yun desperately told himself not to argue with a lunatic, and said patiently, “How am I supposed to sleep like this?”

       Xi Zhao finally gave him a look, “Lie down yourself, do I have to carry you to bed?”

       Qin Yun: “…”

       Xi Zhao sneered, “Don’t be angry, little girl.”


       Qin Yun’s bed was not big, and it was a bit crowded when two men were lying side by side. There was no other way, so Qin Yun could only sleep on his side with his back to Xi Zhao.

       While he was in a daze, Xi Zhao’s pheromones suddenly spread vaguely. Because the mental mark was established, Qin Yun subconsciously reached out for the guiding tendrils and skillfully reached into the other party’s consciousness cloud.

       The more powerful the sentinel was, the more able they were to transform the cloud of consciousness into a mirage of reality. Because the spiritual connection was not established last time, Qin Yun never really entered there.


       In the vast desert land, there was a huge black creature coiled on the huge sand dunes in the distance. Qin Yun glanced at the ‘blue dome’ above his head and confirmed that he was in Xi Zhao’s consciousness illusion.

       “What is that?” Qin Yun said to himself.

       But Xi Zhao seemed to be asleep and no one would answer him.

       At this moment, the sentinel’s consciousness illusion was gentle and peaceful, but he could still see the traces of the barren land that once filled his eyes. Qin Yun knew that it was the after-effect of the mania episode. He looks around, and the guiding tendrils move along with him, but his attention is irresistibly drawn to the dark and unidentified giant creature on top of the sand dune.

       …It seems like something shiny fell on its back?

       Qin Yun squinted his eyes for a long time, and a strange expression slowly appeared on his face.

       HELLO KITTY’s…rhinestone phone case?!


       Qin Yun was awakened by the sudden heat. He turned over at some point and huddled in Xi Zhao’s arms. With a slight movement, the other party also woke up.

       The direct result of excessive use of mental guiding throughout the night was that Qin Yun couldn’t even move a finger now. He can only let Xi Zhao pinch the back of his neck and force his head to rise.

       Qin Yun: “…I hafen brus mah teet yeh (I haven’t brushed my teeth yet)”

       Xi Zhao’s kissing movement paused, and he clamped the other person’s chin with some bad temper, “At this time, just open your mouth obediently, don’t talk nonsense.”

       Qin Yun: “…”


       After being forced to establish a mental mark for a long time, Xi Zhao finally let him go. Sentinel’s pheromone was simply a double-edged sword for the guide. Before the mark was established, it was an aphrodisiac, and after the mark was established, it became a super herbal tonic.

       Qin Yun felt so comfortable after being kissed that he lay on the bed and refused to get up. He thought about the pheromone just now, and his brain finally became clearer. He didn’t understand why Xi Zhao marked him.

       “Are you a high-level sentinel?” Qin Yun asked cautiously, “S-level?”

       Xi Zhao glanced at him and bent down to put on his military boots.

       Qin Yun refused to give up, “Averio Academy didn’t introduce anyone to you? There should be many guides willing to be marked by you, right?”

       Xi Zhao’s expression didn’t look good, “You don’t want to be marked by me?”

       “How is that possible?” Qin Yun widened his eyes and joked. For the guide, the strength of the sentinel determines the status of the military and politics. Even the guide who was very powerful still needed the pheromones of the sentinel to soothe the consequences of excessive use of mental power. Just like sentinel’s mania could only be controlled by a guide, the two were inseparable from each other.

       “Thought so.” Xi Zhao sneered. He put on his shoes, stood up and looked at the other party condescendingly, “What qualifications do sanitary pads have to be picky?”

       Qin Yun: “…” Damn it, who the hell was it that used the ‘sanitary pads’ so well last night?! I haven’t even complained about you being too much, and now you’re complaining that I’m too cheap?!


       His military leave had expired, so Qin Yun started packing his luggage in the afternoon. Xi Zhao had nothing to do, but he didn’t help either. He watched and played with his incomparably gorgeous ‘antique’ mobile phone case.

       “Don’t you need to go back to the military headquarters?” Qin Yun picked out a few handy ornaments and put them in his bag, “By the way, do you have a position in the military headquarters?”

       Xi Zhao had a ‘it’s higher than yours anyway’ face.

       Qin Yun couldn’t stand him, “Don’t you have anything else to do…”

       Xi Zhao thought for a while, “I haven’t read today’s news yet.”

       Qin Yun: “…”


       The Empire’s news network circulated important news every day, and when Qin Yun opened it, he happened to see the war on Eta Star.

       As the third fortress of the Olympus planet, Eta Star was mainly stationed by a kind of highly intelligent bird-like people. There were not many of them, and they were only males. They had a very high mental power but not strong combat effectiveness.

       Olympus nominally provided them with military equipment, but even the Empire didn’t know what they were doing privately.

       “The population of Olympus is only one-fifth of the Empire, but the number of guides is twice that of ours…” Qin Yun frowned, “They are not even willing to send high-level guides to small places like G Planet. …”

       “God-level guide project.” Xi Zhao looked at Qin Yun, “Olympus claims that they have the gene fragment of the god-level guide.”

       Qin Yun was stunned, scratching his head, “This… telling me such a confidential matter…”

       Xi Zhao sneered coldly, “Do you believe it?”

       Qin Yun said seriously, “Since they said so, they must have something to make them that confident.”

       Xi Zhao snorted, “I… no one can change the fact that the emperor will die alone.”

       “…” Qin Yun, “It’s not that absolute, right? Even if one can’t find a guide… being together with someone one loves is always a possibility.”

       “Together with the person you love?” Xi Zhao smiled sarcastically, “And then? One unable to control mania, the other deeply embroiled in political struggles, forced to harm, forced to separate, unable to protect even the beloved?”

       Qin Yun’s mouth was half open, speechless.

       Xi Zhao looked at him expressionlessly, “If that’s how one loves, then I would rather not have it.”


       When Tristana was re-tending the lawn in her garden, she received the news that the S-level weapons warehouse in the military department had been opened. She thought it was Skarter, but was shocked when she saw the other party’s smart scanning card.

       “Why is Your Majesty here at the military headquarters?!” Tristana quickly changed her clothes while contacting Skarter, “Didn’t he just change his sword a few days ago!”

      Skarter was very calm, “Did you forget that he killed 500 sentinels on Planet G? Maybe the sword was broken.”

       Tristana: “…Do you think the dragon scales are just pieces of tofu?!” As soon as she finished speaking, the password on her wrist rang twice more, “Wait! …The S-level battlefield simulation training room is also open?!”

      Skarter was silent for a while and said sympathetically, “I sincerely hope the practice room will still be working when you arrive, General.”

       Tristana: “…”


       Qin Yun had never been to an S-level weapons warehouse or practice room. He watched as Xi Zhao effortlessly swiped his face (…) and sensed the sinister malice of the level difference.

       “Don’t you have a sword?” Qin Yun looked at Xi Zhao and picked out a pair of daggers, “Why do you need to change them?”

       Xi Zhao stuffed one of the daggers into his boots and said calmly, “Can you afford to pay for the damage to the practice room?”

       Qin Yun was shocked, “Of course I can’t afford it!”

       Xi Zhao: “That’s fine.”

       Qin Yun: “??”

       Xi Zhao: “Go and pick one too.”

       Qin Yun chose a bow and arrows in a daze. He glanced at the quiver1A quiver is a container for holding arrows or bolts. It can be carried on an archer’s body, the bow, or the ground, depending on the type of shooting and the archer’s personal preference next to him and hesitated for a moment before taking it.

       Xi Zhao didn’t ask why. The moment the door to the training room opened, he lifted Qin Yun onto his shoulders.


       “I don’t want this position, aaaaaaaaa!” Qin Yun grabbed the other person’s coat and screamed.

       Xi Zhao turned a deaf ear to Qin Yun’s scream and quickly leapt to the high ground. The military training room was highly realistic, faithfully replicating the authenticity of the battlefield. The digitally simulated monsters could actually kill people.

       Qin Yun was almost scared to death when he saw the first Flame Crocodile coming out. Born and raised as a rare native of D Star, where the Empire spent the longest time, with countless high-level guides and sentinels, even His Majesty Moschery, who had just ascended the throne, had to personally lead the expedition to conquer this troublesome territory. Everyone knew about the fighting prowess of the Flame Crocodile. The most disgusting part is that such a huge creature actually has intelligence. Indeed, a big brain does not grow for nothing!

       “What level did you choose?!” Qin Yun no longer had time to worry about the pain in his stomach, “One, two, three, four… four?! What the hell are you going to do with four of them?!!”

       “Are you here to count?” Xi Zhao said sarcastically. He threw out a dagger and inserted it into the neck of the nearest Flame Crocodile, and then jumped onto the crocodile’s back with the handle of the knife.

       The thick tail swept towards the two of them sideways, Qin Yun was thrown up violently, Xi Zhao pulled out another dagger and stabbed the Flame Crocodile cleanly between the eyes.

       Qin Yun: “…This is the second time you have thrown me into the sky like a gymnastic ball.”

       Xi Zhao pulled out two daggers, wiped the blood on his trouser legs, and said indifferently, “Don’t worry, there will be a third time.”
