Seeing all the cuts on Feng Wu’s body, Qiuling burst into tears again .
Why was it always Miss Wu? She kept getting hurt, and it never seemed to end!
Hearing the sobs, Feng Wu turned around to find Qiuling weeping .
“Why are you crying?” Feng Wu rolled her eyes at her maid .
“Miss, can you try not to get hurt?” Qiuling said between broken sobs . “You’ve got amazing skin, and it’s being ruined by all these cuts . I don’t know what to do…”
Qiuling was still feeling distraught, when she sensed spiritual essence rushing into Feng Wu .
There was the sound of chanting in the air .
To cultivators, that had to be the most amazing sound in the world .
As a junior cultivator herself, Qiuling recognized that sound . She covered her mouth and stared at Feng Wu in amazement .
Meanwhile, her mistress had already entered a state of meditation .
It was midnight when Feng Wu woke up again .
Qiuling had stayed with her the entire time, in case Feng Wu needed her help .
Looking down, Feng Wu saw the scab remains that were scattered over the floor .
She was happy to see the way she looked in the mirror .
The skin on her face and her body was fair, smooth, and as translucent as white jade . The cuts were nowhere to be seen .
Feng Wu beamed at Qiuling . “See? Problem solved . ”
Feng Wu had enjoyed some personal gain from Grand Secretary Fang’s breakthrough as well . She was a Level 6 Spiritual Grandmaster now .
She wondered what level Zuo Qingluan was at now . A Level 6 Spiritual Elder?
At that thought, the smile on Feng Wu’s face grew cold .
She had been making progress at the fastest pace possible; it was now time for her to slow it down to a steady pace . She needed a solid foundation, or her future cultivation might be compromised .
She would kill Zuo Qingluan eventually, but that woman was just one of the obstacles she needed to overcome on her journey toward becoming the top cultivator of this world . She wouldn’t let Zuo Qingluan affect her cultivation progress .
Feng Wu was still lost in her thoughts when she heard a knock on the door .
Throwing a robe over her shoulders, Feng Wu opened the door .
Feng Xiaoqi looked up at her with the eyes of an innocent boy .
So many things had happened recently, and her beautiful master’s unexpected appearance had only added to everything . As a result, Feng Wu had neglected the other members of her family .
Feng Wu rubbed the little guy’s head . “Xiaoqi, what’s wrong?”
“Sister, I want to get stronger, too!” Feng Xiaoqi said eagerly . “You were just next door, but there was nothing I could do to get in and help you . I felt so useless! Sister, I want to get stronger! I want to protect you!”
An idea struck Feng Wu .
She was so busy with her own cultivation and searching for the broken star pieces that she had no time to teach Xiaoqi herself .
But Grand Secretary Fang had the time .
Didn’t he say that he was among the top five cultivators of the empire now, and was as capable as Northern Feng General? That made him almost unmatched!
One couldn’t find a better teacher!
And she took action right away!
Taking Feng Xiaoqi’s hand, Feng Wu said, “Come, I’m going to find you a new teacher . ”
Qiuling and Granny Zhao cried out in unison . “Miss, it’s the middle of the night…”
That was the best thing about living next door . Help was only a wall away .
And she wouldn’t need to worry about Xiaoqi getting kidnapped or lured away on his way to his classes .
The more she thought about it, the more excited Feng Wu was . Tossing a “we’ll be back soon” over her shoulder, she then jumped over the wall .
