“Aren’t you afraid of playing with the fire?” Su Yingxue frowned, “That thing is not something an ordinary person can resist.”
Qing Kui scratched his cheek and said, “As long as we act in time, there shouldn’t be any problems. If we really can’t, don’t we still have Master?”
“If this matter were to spread, Little Girl Qu’s reputation would be completely ruined,” Su Yingxue said worriedly, “Especially now that all the forces in the Sect are gathered here for the Dao Exchange Conference, if…”
Qing Kui raised his hand and interrupted her, “Naturally, this matter needs to be done in secret. When the time comes, we must make sure no one sees through it. You don’t want Little Girl Qu to really marry a Fifth Order disciple, right? You should be able to see Master’s intentions. It doesn't matter if this Yang Kai can take the first place, but he must stir some shit!”
Su Yingxue frowned in disgust, “Your words are really unpleasant.”
Qing Kui said, “Yang Kai’s side has already been prepared, so it’s up to you to take care of little Qu. Don’t be too merciful, or her life will be ruined!”
Su Yingxue remained silent, her expression hesitant, obviously not knowing what to do.
If they didn’t do anything and allowed the situation to continue developing like this, then this Dao Exchange Conference would become a joke. Not to mention Yin-Yang Heaven’s face being shamed, Little Girl Qu would definitely not be able to live happily, but if she were to secretly scheme in their back, although it wouldn’t cause any harm, it would also be difficult to make a decision.
“Let me think… I need to think carefully…” Su Yingxue muttered softly.
Qing Kui nodded, not urging her.
Three days later, Yang Kai was meditating when a knock came from the door, followed by the voice of the maid, “Sir Yang, Elder Qing is here.”
Yang Kai quickly got up, pushed open the door, and saw Qing Kui standing outside.
“Senior Brother Qing!” Yang Kai cupped his fists.
Qing Kui looked at him from head to toe and said somewhat unhappily, “Follow me.”
Yang Kai didn’t know what he wanted to do, but he could only follow after him, walking out of the Lookout Pavilion and flying forward. After a while, Yang Kai asked, “Senior Brother Qing, where are we going?”
Qing Kui didn’t even turn his head as he replied, “Didn’t you want to see Little Qu? I’ll take you to see her now.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai was overjoyed and quickly said, “Many thanks, Senior Brother Qing.”
Qing Kui coldly snorted, but Yang Kai didn’t say anything and simply followed behind him.
After a short while, the two of them arrived at a Spirit Peak. The top of the Spirit Peak had a large pit, forming a valley-like area. The valley was filled with lush greenery and flowers, creating a beautiful scenery.
There was a building in the middle of the valley, and the two of them landed directly in front of a palace.
Qing Kui turned around and said, “This is Little Girl Qu’s residence. Go in yourself, Little Girl Qu is inside.”
Yang Kai cupped his fists again and thanked him before walking inside.
Inside the hall, in a room, Su Yingxue was holding Qu Huachang’s hand and seemed to be talking about something. The two of them looked like sisters, but also like mother and daughter.
“Senior Sister, you seem a bit tired? Why do you look so haggard?” Qu Huachang reached out and touched Su Yingxue’s forehead.
Su Yingxue smiled somewhat awkwardly, “Perhaps it’s because I’ve been travelling outside these past few days, it’s nothing serious.”
Qu Huachang said, “If Senior Sister is tired, she should go rest. I’m fine here, why is Senior Sister looking at me like this?”
Su Yingxue reached out and touched the tip of her nose, “Seeing you grow up makes Senior Sister happy. Unknowingly, you have already broken through to Open Heaaven, reaching Senior Sister’s level.”
Qu Huachang giggled and dove into Su Yingxue’s embrace, taking a comfortable position, “I just broke through, I’m still far from being Senior Sister.”
“That’s not the same,” Su Yingxue slowly shook her head, “I broke through to the Fifth Order and slowly cultivated to the Sixth Order. In terms of future potential, I’m inferior to you.”
Qu Huachang raised her head and looked at her, “Then when I cultivate in the future, I will definitely protect Senior Sister and not let you suffer any grievances.”
Su Yingxue smiled gently, “Then I’ll have to wait.”
As she spoke, the sound of footsteps came from behind her, causing Su Yingxue’s body to stiffen. Qu Huachang, who was in her arms, looked up and immediately called out in surprise, “Junior Brother Yang?”
“Uh…” Yang Kai looked at the two women’s intimate posture and couldn’t help feeling a bit embarrassed, “The door wasn’t closed, so I came all the way here. Sorry for disturbing you!”
Taking two steps back, he closed the door behind him.
Qu Huachang blinked and exchanged a glance with Su Yingxue before bursting into laughter, “He seems to have misunderstood something.”
Su Yingxue tapped her forehead lightly and said, “You’re still laughing! Alright, I’ll take my leave now, you two have a good talk.” Saying so, she stood up and walked out.
Pushing open the door, Su Yingxue saw Yang Kai standing outside with an innocent look on his face. Looking at his face, Su Yingxue thought about what might happen next and her stomach filled with anger as she fiercely said, “If you dare bully Little Girl Qu, I won’t let you off.”
“I wouldn’t dare,” Yang Kai bowed and sent him off.
“Hmph!” Su Yingxue flicked her sleeve and brushed past Yang Kai before stomping her foot on his foot.
Yang Kai shivered and didn’t dare to dodge, the smile on his face twitching.
Su Yingxue’s footsteps gradually faded away.
Qu Huachang poked her head out of the room and beckoned to Yang Kai, “Junior Brother, come in and talk!”
Yang Kai limped into the room and immediately smelled a refreshing fragrance. Looking around, the interior of the room was also very warm, allowing one to relax.
Qu Huachang invited him to sit down and poured some tea while pursing her lips and smiling, “I’ve let Junior Brother suffer. My Senior Sister is cold on the outside but warm on the inside, she’s not a cold person.”
Yang Kai stretched his nearly flattened toes and said insincerely, “Thank you.”
Receiving the cup of tea Qu Huachang handed him, he asked, “Is this Senior Sister Qu’s room? Do you want to talk somewhere else?”
He hadn’t expected that Qing Kui would actually bring him to Qu Huachang’s room. A man and a woman sharing a room together was not a good idea.
“Why do you want to change? Can’t you talk in the room? Or is Junior Brother afraid I’ll eat you?” Qu Huachang smiled charmingly and sat down opposite Yang Kai.
“Senior Sister must be joking,” Yang Kai’s mouth twitched as he thought to himself; if she’s not afraid of me, what’s there to be afraid of?
Opposite him, Qu Huachang rested her chin on her hand and smiled at him, “Junior Brother, are you here to see me?”
Yang Kai nodded seriously, “I heard that Yin-Yang Heaven is holding a Dao Exchange to select a husband for Senior Sister. Sigh… I’ve implicated Senior Sister.”
Qu Huachang said indifferently, “I don’t think so, it’s just someone trying to make a fuss. This matter has nothing to do with you, so you don’t have to feel guilty. Speaking of which, I have to thank you for helping me break through to Open Heaven.”
Yang Kai blushed with shame, “I wasn’t able to help Senior Sister much.”
Speaking of which, Qu Huachang fell in love with him, so he really hadn’t used any strength at all. It was all Qu Huachang’s own efforts.
“To be able to meet Junior Brother at the critical moment before my breakthrough to Open Heaven and also make me fall in love with him is the greatest help Junior Brother has given me. If it weren’t for Junior Brother, I don’t know how long it would have taken me to find a suitable candidate.”
Yang Kai secretly clicked his tongue. Only a disciple of Yin-Yang Heaven could be so bold as to say such a thing. How could any other woman dare to say such a thing?
Unwilling to dwell on this topic, Yang Kai asked, “But in this current situation, does Senior Sister have any plans?”
Qu Huachang smiled lightly and said, “What plans can I have? I can only wait for the Dao Exchange Conference to end and then come out of seclusion to marry that champion.”
“Senior Sister is really willing?” Yang Kai frowned.
“As a Cave Heaven Disciple, there are many times when I have no choice. Even if I am unwilling, so what? The Sect has raised me for so many years, and now that the Sect has a need for me, as its Disciple, I naturally can’t refuse. What’s more, this matter was caused by me.”
Her casual attitude made Yang Kai’s heart clench for some reason, making him feel even more guilty.
Suddenly looking at Yang Kai, her beautiful eyes lit up as she said, “How about Junior Brother attend the Dao Exchange Conference and win first place? I’ll marry you.”
Looking at the beautiful face in front of him and hearing these bold words, Yang Kai’s heart suddenly skipped a beat.
Qu Huachang lowered her head to look at his chest and smiled lightly, “Is Junior Brother tempted?”
Yang Kai didn’t know why this was happening, but his face was burning hot. This was not the first time he had interacted with Qu Huachang. In the past, they had been more intimate, but he had never found this woman in front of him so attractive. Listening to her words and seeing her smile, he couldn’t help feeling his blood flow quicken, his mouth dry, and his heart constantly stirring.
He quickly drank some tea to moisten his throat, “Senior Sister’s room is a bit hot.”
Qu Huachang was stunned for a moment before she looked around and said, “I also feel a bit warm.” She giggled, “It must be because Junior Brother was able to come see me at this time that it makes my heart warm.”
Yang Kai stared at her in a daze, feeling that the woman in front of him was becoming more alluring, more difficult to resist. Demonic thoughts filled his heart as he stared greedily at the snow-white skin on Qu Huachang’s clothes, his vision becoming blurry.
“Junior Brother…” Qu Huachang suddenly called out softly, her face turning red.
“En?” Yang Kai was startled, but when he came back to his senses, he found that he had grabbed Qu Huachang’s hand at some point. Her skin was quite smooth.
Instinctively, a trace of vigilance appeared in his heart. This situation was not right! However, before he could finish his thought, he felt Qu Huachang’s hand grab his hand and that trace of vigilance instantly disappeared.
Outside the mountain valley, three figures stood quietly. One stood quietly while the other two sat cross-legged.
Standing there was Yin-Yang Heaven’s Inner Sect Elder Xu Linggong, and sitting there were Su Yingxue and Qing Kui.
At this moment, Qing Kui and Su Yingxue’s strength surged as they formed hand seals, seemingly performing some kind of Secret Technique. Both of them were shrouded in white mist.
Qing Kui suddenly let out a long sigh and grit his teeth, “This little brat’s mind is actually so firm and vigilant, almost allowing him to escape from the Yang Demon’s influence.”
