Qian Rongzhi said, “If you dare to use your true qi, I’ll cut off your arms and your legs . I’ll turn you into a quadruple amputee . If you don’t believe me, you’re more than welcome to try it . ”
Wei Yingjie panicked inside and immediately became afraid to use his true qi . Crushed bones could be healed with medicine, but if his arms or legs were cut off, he would truly become a cripple . A great future still awaited him, along with many beautiful women . If he became a cripple, he would much rather be dead .
“That’s clever of you!” Qian Rongzhi praised . She made her way over, grabbed a handful of Pills of Passion, and shoved them into Wei Yingjie’s mouth . Wei Yingjie struggled and shook his head desperately . The Pills of Passion were an extremely powerful aphrodisiac, in order to make women lose themselves for the sake of harvesting from them . Just two days ago, he had forced Qian Rongzhi to eat two . Even one was far more than what he could endure, so how could he eat so many?
Qian Rongzhi smiled . “Weren’t you so happy when you fed me them two days ago?” Her face suddenly coldened . “Eat it! If you don’t, I’ll cut off your limbs . ”
Wei Yingjie hesitated slightly before producing a howl . Qian Rongzhi cut off one of his fingers and showed it to him .
Wei Yingjie experienced pain, anger, and hatred . However, he was forced to oblige now that he was under the mercy of others . He ate all of the Pills of Passion reluctantly . Very soon, a raging flame of lust exploded in his crotch . His gaze towards Qian Rongzhi gradually became replaced with desire .
Qian Rongzhi smiled and ate a Pill of Calming .
Quite a while later, Qian Rongzhi put her clothes back on . She was brimming with energy, as if she had just drunk some nourishing soup . Her eyes were filled with vigour, and the true qi in her body had basically doubled . She only stopped when she could not withstand it any longer .
However, the additional form of different true qi was not particularly harmonious with her own . Fortunately, both of them practised the Method of Clouds and Rain, so it was not a particularly big problem . Moreover, the Sect of Clouds and Rain produced Pills of Spring Breeze and Rain to address this exact issue . She consumed one of those pills before meditating on the spot, purifying her true qi .
Wei Yingjie heaved heavily . He was haggard and extremely frail . Even if he wanted to release his true qi in resistance, he was powerless now . He recovered most of his clarity and begged, “Please spare me!”
“An idiot like you sure has a lot of true qi . However, I can go slowly . I have plenty of time!” Qian Rongzhi picked up the Water-splitting barb with a smile and made her way over to Wei Yingjie .
“W- what are you trying to do?”
Qian Rongzhi said, “It’s too dangerous! I better cut them off!” There was a splash of blood, and a howl resounded through the underground palace .
Under the starry skies, Li Qingshan left Jiaping silently with Xiao An, like they had never returned to there in the first place . He believed that Qian Rongzhi would behave like she knew nothing either . Everything that happened in Jiaping city would only erupt after a delayed period of time .
He made his way to the back of the Hawkwolf Guard and dove into the raging Clear river that flowed southward . Afterwards, he crossed it and arrived below the cliff on the other side . After quite the effort, he finally found the cave recorded on the map .
Li Qingshan dove in head first . Only after swimming for a whole hour did he emerge in a cave .
What he needed to avoid right now was not just the Sect of Clouds and Rain, but the Hawkwolf Guard as well . If the Hawkwolf Guard discovered him, they would definitely take him back for interrogation, and the Sect of Clouds and Rain would learn about it too . He heavily doubted whether the Hawkwolf Guard could protect him, or should he say, Xiao An, from a great group of Qi Practitioners under the determination of an entire sect . The gaze of the Hawkwolf Guard spanned the world . If he wanted to run around on the surface, he would be discovered sooner or later .
He would not be particularly well-hidden in the wilderness either given the various things cultivators were capable of . As a result, he decided to go to the Zombie Daoist’s dwelling . It possessed all the facilities he required, and it was extremely well-hidden . It would be enough for him to cultivate peacefully for a while so that he could break through to the second layer of the Ox Demon’s Fist of Great Strength .
Underground was not like the flat stretch of land on the surface . Instead, it was extremely twisted . As one moved through the maze-like tunnels, even someone with a particularly good sense of direction would become lost if they did not have a map .
It was said that dark, narrow caves could make people claustrophobic, but Li Qingshan found it alright . Anyone who possessed a great piece of wealth would be in a good mood . He also had Xiao An as company, so he did not feel lonely at all .
Instead, he felt a wondrous sensation of relief in the dark depths of the earth, like a beast returning to the wilderness . He no longer needed to deal with humans under various guises and appearances . Right now, he possessed absolute freedom . From a certain perspective, he really did become more and more like a daemon .
Li Qingshan strode forward, while Xiao An sat on a huge skull that had transformed from a Skull Prayer Bead, studying the underground mental map from the Zombie Daoist with her head lowered . Whenever they encountered a fork, she would indicate which way to go . Li Qingshan did not have the patience to study the map .
This continued until they reached the Zombie Daoist’s dwelling . Li Qingshan was in no hurry to immediately begin cultivating . Instead, he lit a fire and began cooking . There was quite a lot of food across the hundred treasure pouches he had obtained, so he cooked up a feast very soon .
Li Qingshan smiled . “Let’s celebrate!”
The two of them brought their cups together in the pitch-black darkness, producing a clink .
Li Qingshan told Xiao An, “I might take some time with cultivation this time . Don’t run around outside, alright?”
Xiao An nodded obediently .
Li Qingshan rubbed her head . He thought about how she either spent all day fighting and killing with him, or hiding and fleeing with him . This was not the lifestyle that a child should experience . However, just where in this world did no conflict exist? Even if he went to the legendary Academy of the Hundred Schools, would it really be different?
He activated a mechanism, and a great, stone door fell down, sealing off the cultivation room completely .
In the absolute darkness and silence, Li Qingshan took out a bottle of Qi Gathering pills . He would protect her . He had never doubted this fact, no matter when .
Raising his head, he directly tipped the entire bottle into his mouth . Li Qingshan closed his eyes and converted the medicine into true qi according to the methods detailed by the Innate Method of Practising Qi .
After who knows how long, he digested all of the pills . He stood up and daemonified, beginning to practise the Ox Demon’s Fist of Great Strength . The medicinal effects then turned into daemon qi .
This repeated constantly . As he moved and paused, Li Qingshan comprehended the path of humans and daemons, constantly becoming stronger .
Time passed day by day, while the pills were consumed bottle by bottle .
