As soon as Zhang Huashui flew into the air, he saw Zhang Tongtian suddenly appear in front of him and stop him. "Junior Brother, take it easy!"
Zhang Huashui said angrily, "Don't be impulsive? Senior brother, our Qingcheng Mountain has suffered such a disaster. How dare you tell me not to be impulsive?"
Zhang Tongtian also said angrily, "What will other sects think of us if you are so impulsive without any evidence? Fox Zen School lives downtown. What if you alert the world? Once something happens, it will not be the Qingcheng Sect that gets into trouble, but the whole cultivation world!"
Zhang Huashui's face turned red, and the blood vessels on his neck stood out. He roared, "Do you want to leave the murderer alone?"
Zhang Tongtian suppressed his anger and said, "There is something wrong. I feel that it's not that simple. Don't worry, just wait until I find out!"
Zhang Huashui was extremely angry. "When you find out the truth, the murderer will already have been out of control!"
Zhang Tongtian put his hands on Zhang Huashui's shoulders and said in a deep voice, "Junior brother, don't worry. I won't let anyone off who dares to hurt our people. Blood must atone for blood! But it's not the right time for us to carry out our plan. It's not too late to take revenge after we figure it out!"
Zhang Huashui took a deep breath, swallowed his anger, and said, "Okay, Senior Brother, I'll listen to you!"
Zhang Tongtian said with a cold face, "Someone wants to stir up the cultivation world... Hum, that's good. Our Qingcheng Sect will accompany him to the end!"
After that, the two Golden-Body masters of the Qingcheng Sect turned into blue lights and flew back in the blink of an eye.
At the same time, when the Qingcheng Sect encountered a terrible murder, Li Yunyang's family received an unexpected invitation.
"Shen Wancai wants to invite you to the dinner party? Who sent it here?" Zi Yuan opened the golden invitation card in her hand, took a look at it, and handed it back to Li Yundong.
Li Yundong nodded. "Yin Mengfan passed it to Zhou Qin, and Zhou Qin handed it to me. He also invited you, do you want to go or not?" As he said this, Li Yundong handed over another invitation.
Zi Yuan frowned. She didn't take the invitation, just shook her head and said, "Forget it. I don't want to deal with these businessmen. You go by yourself. I won't go."
Li Yunyang smiled and said, "You don't want to go with me? There's no point in me going to the dinner party alone."
Zi Yuan smiled and said, "I guess he is still thinking about the Apprentice Plan. What am I going to do?"
Li Yunyang replied with a smile, "Be my disciples? Do those two guys want to be my disciples? Are you kidding me?"
Zi Yuan said, "You can't say that. He hasn't made much progress now, but it doesn't mean that he won't in the future. Besides, if a cultivation sect wants to strengthen its power, the best way is to accept disciples as widely as possible. It's not enough for you to rely on Zhou Qin alone as your disciple. If you accept Shen Wancai's two children as apprentices, at least you won't need to be so worried about funds in the future. You don't even need to make a deal with Wan Zhenyuan, do you?"
Li Yundong sighed and shook his head. "Do you have a cultivation method that doesn't require money? Why is it always the money issue when we talk about cultivation now?"
Zi Yuan laughed and said, "When Zhang Daoling, the founder of our sect, established the Five-Pecks-of-Rice cult, he had to pay the fee. What's more, now? If you think these two guys are useless, you should accept only one."
Li Yunyang said with a serious face, "One can't be careless with taking a disciple. If I open up a path, it won't be easy to refuse the next one. I have my own plan for this matter."
Zi Yuan nodded. "Fine, as long as you have your own plans. Do you want to go to dinner tonight?"
Li Yundong thought for a moment before saying, "I'll go to this dinner party, not for others, but for Zhou Qin ."
Zi Yuan smiled and looked towards Zhou Qin's room. "How is she now? Is she feeling better?"
Li Yundong nodded. "She wanted to go with me, but she is practicing the Heavenly Jindan Technique now. She is at the key moment for changing bones and blood, so she can't go."
Zi Yuan smiled and said, "Then you can find another companion, but I don't want to go."
Li Yunyang saw that Zi Yuan still insisting on not going, so he didn't force her. He smiled bitterly and said, "Well, I'll find Chan'er and have her go to the dinner party with me. However, I don't know where she is. She still hasn't come back now."
While they were talking, they saw two figures rushing across the balcony mountain. It was Ao Wushuang and Su Chan, who had returned from Mount Qingcheng to Tiannan City.
Li Yunyang saw Su Chan and Ao Wushuang and laughed. "I haven't seen your guys all night. Where did you go?"
Su Chan was still in a state of shock. Although before they got back, Ao Wushuang and she had cleaned up their clothes, her heart still could not help beating wildly.
Hearing Li Yundong say hello to her, Su Chan opened her mouth. She subconsciously wanted to tell Li Yundong about the horrible thing that had happened during the night, but she heard Ao Wushuang cough intentionally to stop her. She swallowed back the words that were about to come out from her mouth.
Su Chan took a deep breath and flashed a grudging smile. "I didn't go anywhere."
Li Yunyang saw that her expression was stiff, and he couldn't help but be stunned. He asked curiously, "What's wrong with you?"
Su Chan looked at him, tongue-tied and speechless. Although she was usually cunning and chatty, she had suddenly changed a lot now. Facing Li Yundong, whom she loved deeply, she opened her eyes and lied. It was really a little hard to say the words. What made Su Chan most pained was that she didn't understand why her master wouldn't let her tell Li Yundong these things.
This mysterious man in black wanted to frame the Fox Zen School. As the head of the school, shouldn't Li Yunyang know?
However, Su Chan also knew that her master no doubt had her own reasons for asking her to do this. Still, when she asked her master, she refused to say them. She was really worried!
Su Chan forced herself to smile, which was uglier than crying. She had no choice but to turn her head back and look at Ao Wushuang.
On the other hand, Ao Wushuang's expression was the same as usual. She chuckled and said, "I'm worried about you, Sect Leader. I'm taking Su Chan out to practice."
Li Yundong didn't doubt her and said with a smile, "Alright."
Su Chan was afraid that Li Yundong would ask her questions, so she said in a panic, "Yundong, I, I'll go back to sleep now."
He saw her running to her room as if she was running for her life, so he hurriedly stopped her and said, "Hey, Zhou Qin is practicing inside. Go to my room instead. But you can't sleep for long. We will go out to attend dinner later."
Su Chan suddenly stopped, turned her face, and looked at Li Yundong pitifully. "Where are you going? Can I not go with you?"
Li Yundong was angry and said, "No! If Zi Yuan doesn't want to go, Zhou Qin won't be able to go. Only you can go with me. Why don't you want to?"
Su Chan rolled her eyes. After thinking for a while, she covered her stomach and complained, "I, I have a stomachache!"
Li Yundong's eyes widened. "It didn't hurt just a moment ago. Now it hurts?"
Su Chan put on a bitter face and cried out, "It only just started hurting!"
Li Yundong's heart stopped beating for a while when he saw Su Chan's pained expression. He thought that Su Chan really had a stomachache, so he couldn't help asking, "What's going on? Why does your stomach hurt for no reason?"
Su Chan's mind was in a mess. She said without thinking, "Isn't it normal for your stomach to hurt?"
Li Yundong was stunned and asked subconsciously, "Is it that time of the month?"
When Su Chan heard that Li Yundong had found an excuse for her, she nodded subconsciously and said, "Yes, yes, my period is coming. My stomach hurts a lot!"
As soon as she said this, Zi Yuan burst into laughter and immediately turned her head, her shoulders shaking.
Li Yundong couldn't help laughing. "Come on, you are a Foundation Building Realm cultivator. You have an unpunctured body! How can you be on your period?"
Su Chan was instantly dumbfounded. Her eyes were wide open. It was only then that she realized that any man who had reached the Foundation Building Realm would never have the physical phenomenon of an ordinary person. Women would not have menstruation every month. It was also because of this that cultivators who had reached the Foundation Building Realm would all have unpunctured bodies. They would be able to be perfect and to the greatest extent ensure that their essence, Qi, and blood would not leak out.
Su Chan complained in her heart, "How could I have forgotten about this?"
The little girl smiled awkwardly and said, "Well, maybe there is an exception to every rule?"
Li Yundong glared at Su Chan and said, "Don't talk nonsense! Go and rest and take care of yourself. Come out with me later!"
Su Chan had no choice but to reply with her cheeks puffed out, "Oh!"
Li Yundong watched her enter his room, turned his head back, and said to Ao Wushuang with a smile, "I don't know where she was all night."
However, as he spoke, he saw Ao Wushuang lowering her head and blinking her eyes. She seemed to be thinking about something and turning a deaf ear to him.
Li Yundong was stunned and couldn't help but raise his voice. "Senior Ao Wushuang?"
Only then did Ao Wushuang wake up as if from a dream. She suddenly raised her head and replied, "Ah? I took Chan'er out to practice at night. Head, you don't have to worry." After that, she forced a smile at him and rushed into her room like a gust of wind.
He looked at Zi Yuan, his eyes full of confusion. "What's going on between that master and disciple?"
Zi Yuan looked at Ao Wushuang doubtfully. Suddenly, her nostrils twitched, and she frowned slightly. In a low voice, she asked, "Do you smell anything?"
Li Yundong also sniffed and shook his head. "No, what's the smell?"
Zi Yuan pondered for a while before saying, "It seems to be the smell of blood, but it's very light."
Li Yundong couldn't help laughing and said, "Is it possible that Chan'er's strength has really regressed a lot?"
Zi Yuan couldn't help laughing. "Nonsense! Don't you talk rubbish about such things!"
They were chatting outside the door. Although their voices were being clearly transmitted around the room, Su Chan couldn't hear them at all. She kept pacing back and forth in Li Yundong's room like an ant on a hot pot.
"What should I do? What should I do?" Su Chan bit her lip, and the back of her right hand kept patting the palm of her left hand. "After such a big event, why won't Master ask me to tell Yundong? I'm so anxious! Why does this person want to frame our school again? What blood feud do we have with him? If others find out that this thing was done by the Fox Zen School, it will be a disaster! No matter how powerful Yundong is, he can't bear such a huge disaster!"
Su Chan was lost in thought. She bit her red lips and made two deep teeth marks. Blood oozed out. She didn't even notice, feeling as if she had plunged into a dark fog. She was in a dangerous situation, but she didn't know where the danger was coming from. Moreover, she couldn't shout or open her mouth. She couldn't warn Li Yundong of such horrible danger.
There were thousands of thoughts swirling in her mind, but after thinking for a while, she finally narrowed her focus down to a few questions: Who was this person? Why did he want to massacre Mount Qingcheng? And why did he want to frame the Linghuchan Sect?
Su Chan was puzzled. Thinking restlessly, she couldn't help stamping her feet and whispering, "Is it just because we are from Fox Zen School and we are fox spirits? Can just anyone sully us in this world?"
Su Chan thought for a while and suddenly made a decision: "No, I still have to tell Yundong, I don't care!"
As soon as she made up her mind, she heard a knock on the door. Li Yundong shouted from outside, "Chan'er, have you had a good rest? We're going out! It's getting dark!"
Su Chan turned around and saw that it was almost dark outside. She had been in the room with a sad face for a long time, but she hadn't noticed at all!
As soon as Li Yundong said this, he pushed the door open and came in. Dressed in a Tang suit with dark red and gold threads on it, he stood at the door proudly. He saw Su Chan standing in the room in a daze and looking at him blankly. She looked like she wanted to say something but stopped on second thought. He couldn't help wondering aloud, "You didn't rest? Why haven't you changed your clothes? Didn't I tell you that you were going out?"
Su Chan opened her mouth and wanted to speak, but she saw Li Yundong wave his hand and smile. "Forget it. Anyway, you were born with natural beauty. Even if you don't dress up, you will be a beautiful little girl. Let's go. The car is waiting outside."
Su Chan was about to say something, but for some reason, she suddenly remembered Ao Wushuang's stern warning and swallowed her words. The girl showed a smile and said, "Let's go."
Li Yundong was praising her. Normally, she would smile and act like a spoiled child, but today she was very quiet. She walked as if she was Xi Shi, a beauty of ancient China.
Li Yundong said curiously, "Have you changed your character today? Do you want to become a lady?"
Su Chan lowered her head, full of worries, and walked out of the door on her own.
Li Yundong was full of doubts, but he didn't think too much about it. He walked over with a smile, gently hugged Su Chan, walked out of the door with her, and got into the car.
After getting into the car, she didn't dare to look at him again. She was afraid that she would be discovered by him if she took one more look, so she just turned her head and gazed out of the window.
It was winter. Although Tiannan City was in the south of the country, it was already a little dark at this time. The street lights were lit, and the city was a flourishing scene of red and green lights.
Through the window, Su Chan looked at the bustling view outside, which was like a horse lamp. What appeared in her mind was the horrible corpse-viewing tower of Mount Qingcheng. She looked at the busy pedestrians outside the window with a blank look in her eyes. Looking at the high-rise buildings with lights all around, Su Chan suddenly shivered for no reason, as if there were a terrible ferocity and murderous intent in this otherwise familiar world.
No one knew what was about to happen, nor did they know what kind of terrifying storm was brewing. Everything was as calm as before, the quiet before the storm.
