Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
The demure female cultivator’s small mouth was slightly open, somewhat surprised. In the next second, her expression became vigilant.
As for the Junior Sister behind her, her face was full of curiosity, as if she wanted to know what kind of ominous sign it was.
Seeing the disbelief on the demure female cultivator’s face, the corners of Chen Chen’s mouth curled up slightly. He shook his head slightly with a cynical look, and then pretended to leave.
However, he had only taken two steps when the young female cultivator’s shout came from behind him.
“Senior, what’s wrong with my Senior Sister? Did you say that she is showing ominous signs?”
Chen Chen’s figure came to an abrupt stop. He turned around, and his eyes shone brightly. He began to use the system in his mind to continuously track down the items on the two female cultivators, and it did not take long for the system to clearly investigate the items on their bodies.
After learning about the items on their bodies, Chen Chen said with a faint smile, “Hehe, your Senior Sister has a very bad item on her. That item can unknowingly hurt the essence souls of others. If you wear it for a long time, it will definitely become a big problem!”
The young female cultivator heard this and quickly caught up with him. She asked curiously, “Senior, what exactly is it?”
“Junior Sister, don’t listen to nonsense from outsiders!”
The Senior Sister behind him rebuked but the Junior Sister didn’t listen at all. She nevertheless looked at Chen Chen with a curious face.
Chen Chen glanced at the Senior Sister’s chest and said indifferently, “If my senses aren’t wrong, there should be something on your body that has the soul of a True Spirit descendant, right?”
“This True Spirit descendant’s attribute was originally born with your own attribute, but as time passed, its resentment intensified and turned into a negative attribute, which instead countered you.”
Hearing this, the Junior Sister was extremely shocked. She quickly turned around and said, “Senior Sister, is this Senior talking about that Vermilion Bird Pendant on your chest?”
Hearing this, the Senior Sister’s eyes also flashed with uncertainty.
The divine senses of an ordinary expert wouldn’t allow him or her to see what was beneath a cultivator’s clothes. Otherwise, how could a female cultivator dare to go out?
Moreover, if she did not perceive wrongly just now, that old man was looking at the position of the Vermilion Bird Pendant on her chest.
Could it be that this old man was really an extraordinary expert?
Although she was hesitant, calmness was quickly restored on her face. She said indifferently, “That was something Senior Brother Li gave me before I left. Until now, I haven’t worn it for long. How could there be a problem?”
When Chen Chen saw that the sorrow between her brows instantly increased at the mention of Senior Brother Li, he vaguely had some guesses in his heart.
This female cultivator was most likely interested in that Senior Brother Li. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have worn that gift from him, on her body.
However, there was quite a bit of resistance between her and that Senior Brother Li, so she was very worried.
With this thought in mind, Chen Chen humphed lightly and said, “Little girl, are you willing to show me that jade pendant?”
A trace of hesitation flashed through the Senior Sister’s eyes when she heard this, but the Junior Sister beside her was urging her on the side. Clearly, she didn’t mind watching the show.
“Senior Sister, just show it to him. Is there anyone who dares to rob in this Supreme Immortal City?”
The Senior Sister was also somewhat moved when she heard this. To be honest, if it was something else, she definitely wouldn’t be willing to show it to this Senior.
But what Senior Brother Li gave her… she had to figure it out no matter what, or else there would be a grudge in her heart,
Thinking of this, she waved her hand, and a scarlet jade pendant appeared in her palm. Then, she handed it to Chen Chen.
When Chen Chen saw the jade pendant, his pupils constricted. This was a good thing, its value was probably extremely high!
“Ah, it’s really a ferocious thing! Uh, no, it seems that someone has done something and tampered with it!”
This time, before the young Junior Sister could speak, the Senior Sister directly asked, “Tampered with it? How is that possible? Senior, please don’t talk nonsense!”
Chen Chen gently stroked the jade pendant, then returned it to the Senior Sister, his face full of disdain.
“I, Tian Yunzi, can’t be bothered to deceive a little girl like you. Do you know that this jade pendant has been set up with a Love Hex?”
“Love Hex? What is that?” The two female cultivators were puzzled.
Chen Chen’s expression was indifferent, he said nonsensically, “It’s a small-scale heretical hex that can make people lose their minds. If you wear this jade pendant for a long time, you will uncontrollably develop a crush on the giver of the jade pendant. If it can weaken the essence soul of the wearer, the effect will be even better.
“Hehe, this kind of thing is usually used by perverts with evil intentions.”
“Ah!” The young Junior Sister cried out in surprise, her face full of disbelief.
As for that Senior Sister, she seemed distracted and lost. Her eyes were blurred, as if she was already dumbfounded on the spot.
However, she had to admit that ever since she left the sect and came to this uncivilized land, she had been missing Senior Brother Li even more. One day apart from him felt like three years.
‘Could it be that this jade pendant is really the cause of it?’
“Senior Sister… is… is this true? Senior Brother Li has a Dao companion!”
The young female cultivator cried out in surprise, her voice traveling far away.
Chen Chen secretly gave her a thumbs up. Without this invisible teammate, he would have to brag a lot more if he wanted to successfully fool her.
“I… I didn’t.” The Senior Sister quickly waved her hand to deny it, her eyes becoming more and more confused.
At this moment, she had no idea if her good impression of Senior Brother Li had appeared naturally or if it was because of the jade pendant.
As for this Senior saying that Senior Brother Li had an evil heart… she hadn’t thought about it at first, but Senior Brother Li clearly had a Dao partner, and yet he gave her a personal jade pendant. It really seemed a bit fishy.
‘Could it be…’
She didn’t dare to continue thinking about it, and a beautiful thing in her mind had unknowingly been shattered.
Seeing her Senior Sister’s expression, the Junior Sister covered her mouth in shock. Then, she turned to look at Chen Chen, her eyes filled with admiration.
It was rumored that some unworldly experts could see through the secrets of the heavens. She did not expect it to be true!
“Senior! Can my Senior Sister still be saved?”
Chen Chen’s expression was indifferent when he heard this, he said seriously, “Love arrays are usually used in conjunction with each other. If it was just this jade pendant, it would be fine. I guess there are some other items that have affected your Senior Sister. They might even have secretly set up a formation at your Senior Sister’s residence. Previously, I thought that your Senior Sister wouldn’t be too affected. But now, looking at her reaction… Hehe.”
The two female cultivators looked at each other when they heard this. For a moment, they were at a loss and didn’t know what to do.
When Chen Chen saw this, he intentionally or unintentionally talked about the disadvantages of being a mistress and the impact it had on other people’s marriages and families. Coupled with the persuasive words he learned in his previous life, it didn’t take long for his Senior Sister to burst into tears. She even wished she could slap herself twice on the spot to express her regret.
She sobbed and said, “Senior, it’s my fault. I didn’t expect Senior Brother Li to be that kind of person. I shouldn’t have taken Senior Brother Li’s gift so casually. Senior Sister Wang has always treated me well. She usually calls me her sister, but I took Senior Brother Li’s gift in private. I’m really not a good person…”
“Senior Sister, you were influenced by that love hex. It’s not your fault. It’s all Senior Brother Li’s misdeed. Don’t cry…”
The Junior Sister next to her comforted her in a soft voice.
Looking at the two female cultivators who had been tricked, Chen Chen sighed and said, “There’s an 80-90% chance that things don’t turn out well in life.”
After saying this, he turned around and was about to leave again.
“Senior, wait a minute. You said that there might be a love array in my residence. How do I break it?”
The Senior Sister’s voice rang out from behind him.
Chen Chen shook his head and said, “If I can’t see the array, how am I supposed to know how to break it? Don’t beg me to break the array for you. I don’t have time to go to the southern mountain range. I’m free and unfettered in this place. I haven’t stayed long enough.”
“Senior, I’m willing to pay Spirit Stones…”
Before he could finish his words, Chen Chen suddenly turned around. A trace of disgust flashed across his face.
“Spirit Stones? Haha, Do I look like the kind of person who accepts Spirit Stones in exchange for favors? I accepted your Spirit Stones today, but it seems like I’m lying to you for the sake of Spirit Stones.”
The two female cultivators immediately didn’t dare to mention Spirit Stones. It was also true… how could such an unworldly expert care about such a small amount of Spirit Stones?
Seeing that Chen Chen still wanted to leave, the Senior Sister suddenly said pitifully, “Senior, you said that I look like your old friend… why don’t you do it for the sake of your old friend? As the saying goes, you should save a person to the end…”
Hearing this, Chen Chen turned around, and a hint of embarrassment flashed across his face. In the end, this embarrassment gradually turned into determination.
He sighed again and said, “Forget it.. Since you’ve already mentioned my old friend, then I’ll help you this time.”
