The Husky and His White Cat Shizun - Chap 186
The person who came had a handsome appearance. His eyes were wide open, and the lantern shone on his face.
Chu Wanning was speechless for a moment. He didn’t know how much Xue Meng had seen or heard. After a moment of silence, Mo Ran broke the silence first.
“I have some matters to discuss with Master.”
Xue Meng narrowed his eyes slightly. When he walked over, he vaguely heard low breathing sounds in the woods. He thought it was a pair of disciples who didn’t know what was good for them and were having a private meeting at the back of the mountain.
Logically speaking, Xue Meng didn’t have the right to care about this kind of thing. Except for Wubei Temple and Shang Qing Pavilion, none of the ten major sects prohibited talking about Dual Cultivation. Although the Peak of Life and Death had a so-called “lecherous” rule, it also referred to “not going to brothels” and “not going against human relations”.
But who was Xue Meng?
He was Chu Wanning’s disciple, the chief disciple.
For so many years, Xue Meng had always treated Chu Wanning’s words and actions as his own standards. Since Chu Wanning didn’t like to see other people having private conversations, Xue Meng didn’t care about anything else. He also disdained this pair of Dao companions holding hands and detested the Dual Cultivation.
The back of the mountain was an important place where the boundary of the Ghost World was easily damaged. How could they be so lovey-dovey in this place? Xue Meng wasn’t happy at all. He carried the lantern and came to find trouble.
He didn’t expect that under the flickering lantern, the two people would be illuminated.
Xue Meng was stunned and stunned. So he didn’t even greet Chu Wanning according to the rules. Instead, he blurted out, “Why are you here?”
The boundary of this place was not broken, so it didn’t need to be repaired.
There were no fragrant herbs or rare flowers, so there was no scenery to speak of.
It was located in a remote area, so it was impossible to wander around here.
If he asked Xue Meng normally, he would say, “There are two people in the dark and silent. They don’t want to walk on the open road, nor do they want to sit in the beautiful back garden. They insist on going to a secluded place to talk. Young Master, what do you think?”
Xue Meng would definitely laugh coldly and say, “What else can we say in that kind of place? Words of love? ”
If he was asked again, “These two are both men, they have known each other for a long time, they are both unmarried, their appearance and status are similar, what kind of relationship does Young Master think they have?”
Xue Meng would definitely roll his eyes and say, “What else could it be? Homosexual fetishes, homosexual fetishes, it’s disgusting. ”
At this moment, he said to him, “Haha, Young Master’s words are incorrect. In fact, these two people are a pair of master and disciple. Young Master, please don’t be presumptuous.”
Most likely, Xue Meng would not even wait for her to finish before slapping the table in anger and shouting, “Ridiculous! What kind of scandal is this?! Which pair of immoral beasts are they? I will immediately expel them from the mountain gate, from the peak of life and death! ”
But at this time, if he were to be told that this pair of master and disciple, one was called Mo Weiyu, the other was called Chu Wanning, then Xue Meng would definitely, definitely, definitely be stunned. All kinds of strange colors flashed across his face like a revolving lantern. In the end, he held his forehead and sat down, saying, “Then, what I said earlier doesn’t count. You, you, you, you, you, ask that question again and start from the beginning. I feel that there must be a second possibility. ”
— — That was the case.
Xue Meng would definitely not, and really could not, relate Chu Wanning to any kind of chaotic, unruly, or unethical matter. So he immediately felt that he had heard wrongly.
But he still felt that his mind was in a mess. He muttered to himself, “What do you want to say here?”
Chu Wanning was just about to open his mouth to explain, but Mo Ran lightly pinched his hand under the cover of his wide sleeves, indicating that he should not speak.
If this person were to lie, even a three-year-old child would not be able to deceive him. It was better to do it himself.
And so, Mo Ran said, “Before evening, I found a sweet osmanthus candy rice cake here.”
Chu Wanning, “… …”
Xue Meng was dumbfounded, “What is it?”
“A sweet osmanthus candy rice cake that has cultivated into a spirit.” Mo Ran said in all seriousness, “It’s only about ten inches tall. It has a lotus leaf on its head and a tail. At the tip of its tail is a burning blue lamp.”
“What kind of monster is this? I’ve never seen it in the illustrated handbook. ”
Mo Ran laughed, “I’ve never seen it before either, so I was wondering if the Confucian Wind Sect’s Demon Subduing Pagoda was destroyed a few days ago, releasing some extinct monster. So I brought Shizun here to take a look.”
Hearing him say this, Xue Meng immediately let out a sigh of relief. He did not know why, but he felt even more comforted in his heart. His tense face finally regained its liveliness. He walked over with the wind lantern in hand, looked around, and asked, “Then did you guys find the sweet rice cake monster?”
Xue Meng glared at him, “I’m not asking you, I’m asking Shizun.”
Chu Wanning said, “… … We didn’t find it.”
Mo Ran laughed, “That sweet rice cake probably saw Shizun and was afraid that Shizun would eat it as a dessert, so it immediately hid.”
Chu Wanning was stunned, then angrily rebuked, “Mo Weiyu! Do you want to go to the library to copy books again? ”
After this commotion, Xue Meng’s initial uneasiness gradually disappeared. He sighed in his heart, really, just now, there was actually a moment when he vaguely felt that his Shizun and that guy Mo Ran had some kind of unclear relationship … … It was really absurd, how could that be possible?
His Shizun was the coldest holy water in the world. No one could touch him, and no one could taint him.
At this time, Mo Ran asked him, “Since we’ve talked so much, let’s talk about you. What are you doing here?”
Xue Meng mumbled, “I’m looking for vegetable buns for my mother.”
Mo Ran raised his eyebrows, “You mean that fat cat you just picked up?”
“The orange one with the ‘wang’ character on its head, the one that only eats fish and not meat?”
“Yes, have you seen it?” Xue Meng sighed, looking very helpless, “It’s so fat, but it can run very fast. I went to the front mountain to the back mountain, I went to all the places that people can go, but I didn’t see its shadow … …” He suddenly thought of something, and suddenly widened his eyes, “Ah! Do you think it was eaten by the sweet rice cake monster? ”
Mo Ran actually wanted to laugh, but he held it in and coughed lightly, “Well, I see that sweet rice cake is so small, even though it’s a monster, it’s not very useful. If vegetable buns meet it, the one who should be worried is not the orange cat, but the sweet rice cake.”
Xue Meng touched his chin, thought about vegetable buns’ body size, and agreed, “Yes … … you’re right … …”
Chu Wanning said, “The back mountain is dangerous, don’t go any further, I’ll help you find it.”
Xue Meng hurriedly waved his hand, “I wouldn’t dare to trouble you, Master.”
Chu Wanning said, “I have nothing to do, so I’ll help you look for it for a while. After that, I have to go to Dan Xin Palace to attend the Elders’ Meeting. Mo Ran, come with me, it’ll be faster.”
Mo Ran, “… …”
He really admired Chu Wanning. Chu Wanning probably thought that his body was like a fire, burning and extinguishing at will, but he actually asked him to stand up and look for the cat at this time? … … He had not even extinguished it yet.
Xue Meng saw that he was not moving, and his expression was strange, so he asked, “What’s wrong with you?”
Mo Ran said, “Nothing, I’ve been feeling a little uncomfortable since just now. You guys go ahead, I’ll be there soon.”
Chu Wanning glanced at him, and suddenly realized that Mo Ran’s clothes were different from his. Mo Ran was used to wearing black and gold clothes, which were very tight, and were very suitable for fighting. However, the flaw was also very obvious. If he did not wear a cloak, once the lower part of his body reacted violently, it would be very obvious.
“…” Chu Wanning didn’t say anything else. In the darkness, her originally cold face suddenly reddened, as if the sunset had shone on a translucent ice. Extreme cold and extreme warmth merged and dyed her face with sparkling and translucent splendor.
From that day on, Chu Wanning was unwilling to meet Mo Ran privately at the Peak of Life and Death.
Coincidentally, that period of time was also busy. The various sects felt that as long as Xu Shuanglin lived, he could not sleep peacefully. They asked for help from the “Heavenly Music Pavilion”, which was a public trial organization independent of the Ten Great Sects. It was good at investigating difficult and complicated matters, but Xu Shuanglin was too ruthless and did not leave behind any clues. The Heavenly Music Pavilion expressed that it was unable to help.
At the end of the month, Li Wuxin could not wait any longer, so he sent out invitations to invite the leaders of the large and small sects, as well as the chief elders, to Spirited Mountain for a meeting.
Chu Wanning and Xue Zhengyong naturally went as well.
The last time all the heroes gathered at Spirited Mountain was when Xue Meng, Nangong Si and the others were discussing the sword. In the blink of an eye, the situation in the cultivation world changed dramatically. The seat that originally belonged to the Confucian Wind School was now empty. The Fire Phoenix Pavilion was also unable to recover from the setback. The new leader was a young man who even stuttered when he spoke, shrinking into the crowd and not uttering a single word. The masters of the Wubei Temple were very cautious in their words and actions, and did not say a single word to preside over the scandal …
Xue Zhengyong recalled that day when all the heroes gathered and the scene was harmonious. He felt as if it was a lifetime ago, so he could not help but sigh in a low voice.
After sitting down, Jiang Xi was elected as the First Lord of the Reverend. He was to be the commander of the investigation of Nan Gongxu. He was completely different from the previous First Lord of the Reverend, Nangong Liu. Nangong Liu was always smiling. No matter his position, he was always polite and did not like to offend people.
What about Jiang Xi?
When all the leaders showed the results of the voting and asked him to preside, he was already cold and indifferent. Without any trace of politeness, he sat down on the seat of honor that Nangong Liu had previously sat on.
Before Nangong Liu sat on this seat, he tried his best to decline but gave in several times. He was more or less modest and respectful. After sitting on the seat, he earnestly spoke for half an hour, saying that he was indebted to everyone for thinking highly of him. Everyone, please support him. If he made a mistake, please forgive him. His saliva flew everywhere.
Jiang Xi only had three words.
“It’s my duty.”
He actually said that this seat should be his.
Sect Leader Jiang was really rich, really arrogant, really bad-tempered, and really thick-skinned.
Xue Zhengyong suddenly remembered something. In a low voice, he muttered to Chu Wanning, “He didn’t come to the Spirited Mountain Conference, more than once.”
Chu Wanning didn’t understand these power struggles. He frowned slightly and asked, “What do you mean?”
“I mean, ever since Nangong Liu became the First Sect Leader and the Confucian Wind Sect was recognized as the First Sect, Jiang Xi didn’t come to any of the Sect Leaders’ conferences …”
Chu Wanning looked at Jiang Xi for a while and said, “This person is proud and arrogant. It seems that he doesn’t want to be inferior to a piece of trash.”
Xue Zhengyong felt wronged. “I don’t want to be inferior to a piece of trash either.”
Chu Wanning smiled faintly. “The Sect Leader is forbearing. It doesn’t count as being inferior.”
As they were talking, one of Lonemoon’s attendants suddenly came over. He stopped by their table, bowed, and then presented a brocade box.
Xue Zhengyong turned around and asked, “What’s wrong?”
The attendant shook his head and pointed to his ears and then to his mouth. He was actually a deaf and mute servant who couldn’t speak or hear.
Chu Wanning carefully observed him and found that this person was different from the other disciples of Lonemoon Night. Around his neck was a silver snake-shaped collar.
“Han Lin Divine Hand …?”
The mute servant noticed that Chu Wanning was looking at his collar. Nodding repeatedly, he bowed and raised the box over his head to present it to Chu Wanning.
There was also an exquisite snake-shaped emblem on the top of the box. Xue Zhengyong looked at it and said to Chu Wanning: “He should be a direct disciple of Han Lin Divine Hand.”
Saying so, he then looked towards Lonemoon Ye’s seat. Sure enough, he saw the number one Medicine Sect’s Grandmaster, Hua Binan. Wearing a veil over her face, only her eyes could be seen, quietly staring at them.
