Volume 10 – Chapter 13: Jade Butterfly (Part 1)
“Wow! Is this Mountain Tai!”
Putting her hand above her eyebrows, she tried her best to survey the area. Just as she got off the train and stepped on the platform, Luo Pianju was filled with excitement already.
As people rushed to and fro, Long Xiruo looked at the little butterfly with some reluctance. In the beginning, she brought the little butterfly with her, not for protection but to handle some matters in her place. After all, there were many things inconvenient for her to come forward directly in her current appearance.
This demon regarded this matter as a vacation. Long Xiruo tried so hard on the train to tell Luo Pianju about this Mountain Tai trip. Probably this demon had forgotten about it a long time ago.
But, what the hell is going on with her breast?
Long Xiruo was in awe as she caught sight of it. Especially with the little demon’s current dress, it just seemed unfair.
“Speaking of which, I haven’t seen this dress before. When did you buy it?” Long Xiruo asked curiously.
“This dress?” Luo Pianju blinked, reached out, and pulled up the skirt. She slightly revealed the lace inside and said with a smile, “Sister Zijun gave it to me!”
“Oh.” Long Xiruo didn’t overthink it but just complained in her heart. That brat goes where she wants without saying a word.
But… How could that brat find such suitable clothes? Could it be that she had already encountered this situation before Little Butterfly left her cocoon?
This breast size…
Quietly, a cold voice appeared behind Long Xiruo and Luo Pianju. It was nothing for Long Xiruo, but Butterfly was taken aback, panicking and grasping her palm nervously.
“Don’t be nervous. It’s Ghost Infant.” Long Xiruo whispered.
“Huh? Mr. Ghost Infant?”
“This is a special ability of his race. You should treat it as an invisibility-like ability,” explained Long Xiruo briefly. She left the platform. Luo Pianju could only follow quickly, but she still tried to detect the Ghost Infant nervously.
Long Xiruo lowered her voice and said, “What’s the situation in Mountain Tai now?”
Ghost Infant’s voice sounded at this time, “It’s chaotic. Taking this as an opportunity, the daoist circle and demon beast clans broke into a fight, but there was no movement on the imperial court. They have no intention to intervene.”
Long Xiruo said calmly, “They prefer to watch both sides depleting their strength. Although the demon beast signed an agreement with the country’s founder, some people have different opinions on the initial agreement after so many years.”
As she said, she sneered, “It seems that the daoist circle can’t sit still either. Are they planning to take the opportunity to suppress the demon beast race? It seems that the suppression over the years is going to erupt adverse effects.”
Ghost Ying said slowly, “The prime minister also said that the demon beast clans also have a lot of dissatisfaction with the daoist circle. Sooner or later something will happen. This time, the emergence of Emperor Dongyue’s inheritance is just an opening for the situation.”
Long Xiruo frowned, “Gui Qianyi said on the phone that the person who got the talisman is missing?”
“Yes.” Ghost Infant said hurriedly, “That person is a Huanzhen Dao descendant. His master is Yang Taizi. He is a brat who has just entered Daoism not long ago. He has diminutive strength. In addition, he disappeared with a Long Hushan Celestial Master’s Way’s descendant.”
“Long Hushan Celestial Master’s Way?” Long Xiruo was taken aback, “Zhang Daoling’s Confucian Orthodoxy…”
—If I ascend into an immortal, the world will be peaceful!
Suddenly a sonorous voice sounded in her heart… Long Xiruo smiled slightly and whispered, “The kid back then had changed.”
“Master Long?” Ghost Infant heard a puzzled voice.
Long Xiruo shook her head and said, “It’s nothing. I just remembered an acquaintance. Take me to see Gui Qianyi. He seems anxious on the phone. He requests for my presence to explain in detail. Do you know what happened?”
“I don’t know.” Ghost Infant’s words were filled with worry, “Ever since this incident, Master Turtle has not gone out. He locks himself in. As his subordinate, I’m also quite worried. This time, the Mountain Tai undercurrent is raging. The people from the imperial court visited Xuan Yuan Palace multiple times. Master Turtle didn’t meet them with the excuse of illness.”
Amidst the conversation, Long Xiruo and Luo Pianju had already walked out of the train station together. To Luo Pianju’s surprise, she suddenly couldn’t hear Ghost Infant’s voice. She looked in front of her. A black car had been parked in front of her.
As for Ghost Infant, he had already appeared at this time. He wore a black suit and even wore a driver’s hat. He opened the car door and welcomed the two of them.
“Mr. Ghost Infant?” Luo Pianju exclaimed in surprise. Although his face looked the same, his appearance had changed too much!
Luo Pianju didn’t have many contacts with Ghost Infant, but this Elysium Bar’s gatekeeper did give Luo Pianju a deep impression.
In her memories, Ghost Infant wore clothes with many nails and even earrings on the nostrils. Back then, his hair was always dyed in multiple colors. But at this moment, Ghost Infant seemed like an intellectual, coupled with paler skin, just like a noble son.
Ghost Infant said calmly at this time, “After all, I’m going to participate in the Mountain Tai meeting, so I need to pay attention to my appearance. Is there a problem?”
“No…no.” Luo Pianju shook her head quickly.
Still the same intimidating gaze… Luo Pianju walked into the back of the car lightly and then pulled Long Xiruo over.
“Mr. Ghost Infant, where are we going now?” Luo Pianju asked curiously.
Ghost Infant turned his head from the driving seat and said, “We’re heading to the vicinity of Two-dragons Pond. Xuan Yuan Palace has its property there. Okay, please sit firmly. I’m going to start the car.”
Sitting cross-legged in the humble room, Momo began to rejuvenate his body with qi. With the medicine that the woman named Qin applied to him, his injury had healed. 30% of his meridians had recovered after several days of cultivation. He had become somewhat capable of fending for himself.
After the mysterious woman surnamed Qin left that day, Momo carried Zhan’er on his back to find the exit. Then, he found a village that was at least 60 kilometers away from the place where he fell off the cliff. He then realized why he didn’t encounter any daoist or demon beast. The woman transferred him and Zhan’er to a much safer place.
Momo quickly found a local family surnamed Wang, who appeared like a simple villager name. He made up an excuse and then took some money to pay the villager. With that, he temporarily stayed in this family’s home.
