After sending Wan Zhenyuan away, Li Yundong knew that both Su Chan and Zi Yuan were very curious about Wan Zhenyuan's purpose, but Li Yundong still calmly brought the matter over. After dinner, he saw everyone return to their own rooms, then called Zi Yuan off the balcony and told her the purpose of Wan Zhenyuan's visit.
After hearing Li Yundong's words, Zi Yuan was a little surprised and asked, "You refused?"
Li Yundong shook his head and said, "No, I just said that I needed to think about it. But, like Du Fei, Wan Zhenyuan didn't want me to transfer the Heavenly Jindan Technique to others, either."
Zi Yuan smiled slightly. The corner of her mouth contained a mocking smile. "They all don't want the opponents of their own sects to grow stronger! This 'Heavenly Jindan Technique' has now become a hot commodity. Are you planning to wait for the highest bidder?"
Li Yundong sighed lightly. "No, I'm just doubtful of Wan Zhenyuan's purpose. Don't you think it's too coincidental?"
Zi Yuan couldn't help but ask, "Are you worried about...?"
"Yes, I have always felt that these things are coming one after another, one upon another, which is very strange and too coincidental! The Diyuan Jindan of Wan Zhenyuan lacks a kind of guiding drug, and this drug happens to be the 1,000-year-old snow lotus. Moreover, this snow lotus happens to be on the holy mountain in Tibet, and the Esoteric Sect in charge of the holy mountain has now been taken over by Banda Lam. And this Banda Lam happens to be Meiduo, who I knew when I was in Zhuji phase! Isn't this too weird?"
Zi Yuan thought for a moment and also frowned slightly. "Indeed, these things are like exquisite mechanical elements, all working together. But the possibility of coincidence can't be ruled out."
Li Yundong shook his head and said, "But all this seems so coincidental that it's as if someone deliberately made such a situation, and as if there is a pair of hands behind adding fuel to the fire! Do you still remember the two big golden snakes that were stolen? Once you told me that if I wanted to refine the Diyuan Jindan, I would have to use the Neidan of the big golden snake as a guiding drug. Otherwise, I wouldn't succeed. Do you still remember?"
Zi Yuan nodded. "Yes, I do!"
"Wan Zhenyuan must have something to do with the person who stole the big golden snake! And this person who stole the snake must have some clues in connection with what's happening in the Fox Zen School! If this person was Liu Ye, why would he do that? Because he wanted to resurrect the Mystical Silver Fox? If so, what is the relationship between the Diyuan Jindan and the Mystical Silver Fox? Why did Yan Fang desperately want to kill Cao Kefei before? Could it be..."
Zi Yuan pondered for a while before saying, "When I saw Cao Kefei for the first time, I felt that there was something wrong with her. Ordinary people have three transcendent components and seven material components of the human soul, but she only had one transcendent component and three material ones. Yan Fang once said that the soul of the Mystical Silver Fox had been destroyed, and she had always wanted to kill Cao Kefei at all costs after seeing her. Do you think there is any connection between them?"
Li Yundong's face was gloomy, and he didn't speak for a long time. Eventually, he said in a gloomy voice, "Do you mean... President Cao... No, Cao Kefei is the Mystical Silver Fox?"
Zi Yuan shook her head and said, "No, that's not necessarily true. I just think that the Mystical Silver Fox must have something to do with Cao Kefei, but it may not necessarily be her. It may be the remnant soul of the Mystical Silver Fox that escaped, or maybe she was born weak, so she has fewer souls than others."
Li Yundong didn't comment. He was silent for a long time and didn't say a word.
Zi Yuan saw him frown and she almost frowned together with him. She couldn't help but sigh slightly and said, "Others call you incredible Li and see that you are surrounded by beautiful women. You even showed your divine power in the Taoist assembly and made a name for yourself in the world. But who could imagine that even though you seem to be very glorious now, in fact, you are walking on thin ice over an abyss, and you are in danger of being doomed eternally at any time?"
Li Yundong let out a long sigh and looked at the tightly closed rooms of Su Chan and others. He sighed and said, "Those who know me say I am worried, those who don't know me ask what I want! You still know me the best!"
Zi Yuan listened to his sigh. For some reason, she suddenly felt good in her heart, as if there was a faint warmth flowing in her chest, as if she could share the burden of this young cultivator. She felt very gratified and happy. She smiled lightly and said, "Don't worry, so many troubles have gone before. Have you become timid since you've become so strong now?"
Li Yundong also laughed when he heard that. Just as he was about to speak, he suddenly saw two beams of green light flash across the roof, quickly crossing the sky and disappearing into the horizon.
He was stunned. "Who was that?"
Zi Yuan was also surprised and said, "Judging from the figure just now, it seemed to be Su Chan and Ao Wushuang?"
Li Yundong was surprised. "It's so late. Why are they going out?"
Zi Yuan smiled and said, "Maybe since the two of them have met again, they want to go out for relaxation. Don't worry. With Ao Wushuang around, Su Chan won't be able to turn the world upside down."
Li Yundong couldn't help laughing. "You're right. I wanted to follow them to have a look, but now it seems that I was being too worried."
Zi Yuan laughed and said, "Su Chan is still young and has a child's personality, but she has grown up a lot. She will gradually become more mature and sensible. You don't have to worry about her." Speaking of this, a thought suddenly flashed across Zi Yuan's mind. "If Su Chan grows into a Mystical Silver Fox in the future, and the Cultivation World wants to kill her, what will you do?"
However, just as Zi Yuan was about to say this to Li Yundong, she saw that his face was full of doting and sweet smiles as he spoke about Su Chan. She swallowed back the words at the tip of her tongue and sighed in her heart.
Li Yundong didn't know what Zi Yuan was thinking. He looked in the direction in which Su Chan and Ao Wushuang had left with a smile, and said, "Forget it, let's go in. Anyway, Su Chan was taken by her master. Her master couldn't take her to make trouble, could she?"
Li Yundong and Zi Yuan didn't know that what Su Chan and Ao Wushuang wanted to do was far more than just causing trouble.
The two fox spirits, one big and the other small, turned into two beams of blue light and flew into the air in the blink of an eye. It was winter, the least rainy season. The two were not afraid of anything, so they flew very high.
They flew for a long time. When they landed, they were in the western region of Sichuan. Ao Wushuang took Su Chan's hand and slowly put it down. She said with a smile, "Chan'er, how long has it been since we last flew together like this?"
"It's been a while!" Su Chan said with a smile. She looked around and found that she was already in a lush forest. She asked curiously, "Is this Mount Qingcheng?"
Ao Wushuang also looked around. She couldn't help sighing and said, "That's right! Look at the verdant trees all around, the peaks are ringed around each other, like a city outline, like a forest city, so it's called Mount Qingcheng by the world. Alas, I've been here for a long time ago. I hadn't expected there to be no change here at all!"
Su Chan took Ao Wushuang's hand and asked curiously, "Master, have you been here before?"
Ao Wushuang nodded slightly. "Yes, I've been here before."
Su Chan asked again, "So what were you doing here?"
Ao Wushuang sighed softly and said, "I came with Wang Yuanshan to tour the scenic spots..."
Su Chan immediately shut her mouth sensibly and didn't ask any more questions, hoping to avoid bringing back the sad memories of the past to Ao Wushuang.
However, Ao Wushuang sighed emotionally and said, "I've always wanted to bring you here, but it's a pity that I never had the time. Look, the Shangqing Temple is located in the depths of Mount Qingcheng. From the foot of the mountain to the Taoist temple, there are thousands of stairs, and the path is deep and secluded. Therefore, Mount Qingcheng has a beautiful reputation as 'Mt. Qingcheng the World Quiet'."
Su Chan followed Ao Wushuang's gaze and saw a Taoist temple sign looming in the deep mountains. The cornices of the Taoist temple were arched in the green forest, revealing a small horn under the faint starlight and moonlight.
She could only see that Mount Qingcheng was surrounded by green mountains. The peaks were undulating up and down, and a valley and Taoist temple were reflected in it. At first glance, although it was not as majestic as Mount Longhu, in such an environment, it could make people feel peaceful.
The little girl took a deep breath and couldn't help sighing, "What a good place! No wonder it is as famous as the precipice of Jianmen Pass, the elegance of Mount Emei and the majesty of Kuimen Gate! Cultivating in such a place will yield twice the result with half the effort! It's good that our Fox Zen School has such a good cultivation place!"
Ao Wushuang also sighed and said, "Don't even dream about it. For thousands of years, the pioneer of every sect in the Cultivation World had to occupy a mountain before establishing a sect! After so many years, almost all the sacred places have been robbed! It wasn't easy to get Mount Tianlong, and now we can't live there anymore. Alas, there have been too many disasters in our Fox Zen School."
Su Chan also sighed with a sad face, but she was optimistic and cheerful. Soon, she took Ao Wushuang's arm and said with a smile, "Don't worry, Yundong said that he would bring back Mount Tianlong again!"
Ao Wushuang chuckled and said, "I don't doubt his ability, but I suspect that you don't have the ability to control him."
Su Chan's mouth immediately swelled, and she felt unhappy in her heart. But soon, she pulled Ao Wushuang's arm anxiously and urged, "So, master, you have to teach me Sexual Yoga! Otherwise, I will be a burden and Yundong won't want me anymore!"
Ao Wushuang was experienced. She knew very well that Li Yundong's character and temper were the same as Wang Yuanshan's, who was generally affectionate. However, Wan Yuanshan was more elegant and never lost his temper. From Su Chan's description of Li Yundong, Ao Wushuang had learned that he was quite emotional. Although he was usually gentle and elegant, once someone crossed his bottom line, he would be furious.
Ao Wushuang knew this well. She was also confident that her eyes would not be wrong. People like Li Yundong would never dislike Su Chan on the basis that her cultivation could not keep up with his own. However, Ao Wushuang was very happy to see Su Chan forcing herself to cultivate and improve her strength because of this unnecessary sense of crisis.
Therefore, Ao Wushuang knew it very well, but she deliberately didn't say it out. On the contrary, she smiled and said, "Now you know why you should be in a hurry? Don't worry. Let me think about where the Qingcheng Secret Record will be hidden."
When Su Chan heard this, her anxious heart immediately turned cold. She exclaimed, "Ah? Don't you know where the Qingcheng Secret Record is? Then why are we here? To search the mountains?"
Ao Wushuang thought for a moment and said, "Is it hidden in Jianfu Palace? Or in the Supreme Old Lord Temple? Could it be hidden in Yuanming Palace? No, such an important thing should be hidden in the Shangqing Temple! Hey, could it be in the Tianshi Cave?"
The little girl listened with her eyes wide open, and she couldn't help but say in her heart, "Oh my god, I thought I was unreliable, but I hadn't expected... master would be even more unreliable than me."
