Dual Cultivation Companions
“What? Little kid Su Yun? You are the Little Kid Su Yun?”
Inside Pill King’s room, Pill King in the midst of creating pills stared at the cloaked figure, he suddenly shouted out, not even feeling the ingredients in his hands dropping.
“Senior, it is me.”
Su Yun took off the hat, exposing his extremely pale white face.
“It truly is you! I never thought you would still be alive, child, you truly are blessed by the heavens. It’s good that you’re alright, good that you’re alright! The talent of my medicine world is still here! That’s good!”
Su Yun: “….”
Pill King laughed out loud, and anxiously grabbed Su Yun to sit on the table and asked immediately: “Child, where have you been all these years? I have heard that you were forced to death by an expert of the Spirit Demon Realm and you were sent to hell! What exactly happened? Quickly tell me, what exactly happened? Did you obtain some kind of fortuitous encounter?”
“Me?” Su Yun shook his head and laughed bitterly: “I went to the Evil Realm and walked around the entire place!”
“Evil Realm!” Pill King and Gui Mo Jue jumped up in shock.
Su Yun nodded his head, then told them everything that had happened in the Evil Realm, of course, hiding the important points, some things would be better left unknown.
“No wonder, your Qi seems to be very cold now, your face is so pale, your pupils look so evil, you look like a dead person brought to life, but the strength of your life is very strong, so weird!” Pill King said: “I think you have been influenced by the Evil Realm for staying inside too long.”
“You can say so.”
Su Yun did not explain, and was about to ask about Qing Er, when two familiar voices came out from outside.
“Disciples Su Xin Yue and Su Xing Yang, request to see Pill King Clan Elder!”
“Xin Yue and Xing Yang?”
Su Yun was startled, immediately rushing to open the door.
The door opened.
The two persons outside raised their head to look and were immediately petrified. After a while, Xin Yue reacted, but her eyes turned red, she started sobbing, she pounced forward and crashed into Su Yun’s bosom, tugging at his sleeves with all might.
“Big brother Su Yun! You’re alive! You’re still alive! That’s so good! That’s truly good, wuuuuuu.”
Su Xin Yue was already crying heavily wetting Su Yun’s chest, her fragrant shoulders kept shaking uncontrollably, she was deeply hurt.
“Big brother, is it really you? Really you? You’re back? That’s great! I already said, big brother will definitely be fine, but Xin Yue just did not believe in me, and always reminisced about you, to the point that made me almost go crazy.” Su Xing Yang rubbed his head, and spoke out.
“You’re the crazy one!” Su Xin yue wiped her tears and shot back at Su Xing Yang.
“Hey, hey, I was just saying.” Su Xing Yang laughed.
“Alright alright, I’m fine, I’m here, you guys don’t have to worry anymore!”
Su Yun rubbed on Xin Yue’s head and laughed.
“Come in to talk, it is not convenient for Su Yun to be outside!” Gui Mo Jue laughed and said.
They all entered the house.
Su Yun then repeated his story that he told to Pill King and Gui Mo Jue to the siblings again, after knowing that Su Yun had gone to the Evil Realm, Xin Yue and Xing Yang jumped in shock, but knowing that Su Yun was right in front of them safe and sound, the both of them were more relaxed.
After going through about what had happened to him, countless of sighs were heard. The two of them then chatted with Su Yun for a while, then Su Yun decided to go straight to the main point.
“Speaking about it, Senior Pill King, Xin Yue, Xing Yang, did you have new news of Qing Er?
“Sister Qing Er.”
Xin Yue lowered her head, becoming quiet.
Su Yun’s eyes swept across everyone, then, everyone to sigh.
“What’s wrong?” Su Yun frowned.
“Child! I will tell you honestly, Since the revolt, our Blossom Heart Valley had already sent out people to look for you and Su Qing Er! Just that, we sent out 12 people a year, once every month, but they could not find any traces of you and Miss Qing Er!”
“Xin Yue and Xing Yang had just came back from the outside, but did not find anything either, the continent is so big, there are no information of Miss Qing Er’s whereabouts!”
“Her cultivation level is not low either, if she was safe and sound, she would had definitely left Blossom Heart Valley, but she did not.”
“Hey, Mo Jue, you’re wrong. Child, Su Yun, you may not like hearing this, but I still have to say it, I feel that Su Qing Er, she…”
Pill King’s metal table crumbled into pieces, Su Yun held up his fist, his expression fierce and firm: “Qing Er will be fine! Senior Pill King, you don’t have to say anymore!”
Pill King was startled, then said: “Child, who said Qing Er would be in trouble? I just wanted to say, she might still be in hiding, and might even be looking for you still!”
Hearing that, Su Yun’s cold heart calmed down, and asked: “Why does senior say that?”
“Because Profound Sky Sect and the Su Family people are still watching Blossom Heart Valley!” Pill King shook his head: “I think, since they had not found Qing Er, if not they would not be staring at our Blossom Heart Valley. Although Qing Er had not stayed long in our Blossom Heart Valley, I know somethings about her. This girl, she is very clever, with a nimble mind. She did not come to Blossom Heart Valley, most definitely the reason being that the Profound Sky Sect and Su family are still looking for her, why would she come and give herself away? So I think that, she must be hiding somewhere and waiting for you!”
Hearing that, Su Yun’s eyes lit up and replied: “That’s right! Since profound sky sect and Su family are still looking for her, that means she is still alright, but how am I supposed to find her?”
“That I do not know.” Pill King shook his head and answered.
Su Yun became quiet.
“This old man will definitely help you.”
“Thank you senior!”
Su Yun heaved a sigh of relief, and said: “I think I will go to the northern continent to walk around, gather some information, maybe I will find Qing Er’s location there.”
“You decide for yourself.” Pill King nodded as though he had something else to say. Just then, footsteps came from afar and then, a disciple of Blossom Heart Valley ran out and shouted.
“Disciple Zhang Shi Song wish to meet you!”
The Pill King glanced at Su Yun and instantly, Su Yun covered his face with his cape.
“Come on in!” Gui Mo Jue called out.
Immediately, the door was pushed opened. Disciple Zhang Shi Song walked in with a piece of blood red invitation in his hands as he walked towards Pill King with his body bowed.
The Pill King was confused as he took the invitation.
“Reporting to clan elder, just earlier on, someone from Ming Ying Sect sent this invitation over and invited all clan elders in our valley to head towards Ming Ying Sect to attend this wedding.”
The Pill King was stunned: “Which almighty being from Ming Ying Sect is going to get married?”
Usually, a spirit cultivator would not get to make such a grand wedding ceremony. Unless both the spirit cultivators were extremely powerful or had high authorities, only then would such a grand ceremony be executed. As for blessings, of course, the blessings would not be so simple. It had to be facilitated by a mystical technique. This mystical technique could let both the parties get benefits. But, a stronger person would be needed to give them their blessings.
“Disciple do not know who are the ones becoming dual cultivation companions. The man came fast and left quickly. He did not even stay for tea.”
“Oh, I see.”
Pill King then tore open the envelope and right away, he was surprised. After a while later, he spoke: “I never really thought that the Left protector, Liu Xin Dong and Right protector, Hu Qian Mei from Ming Ying Sect to… Tsk tsk, I see, if it truly is these two people then it’s worth the watch.”
“Senior Pill King, who did you say are becoming dual cultivation companions?” Su Yun felt as though there were water in his ears, unabling to hear properly as he enquired anxiously.
“Liu Xin Dong and Hu Qian Mei.” Pill King looked at him in a daze.
Su Yun almost jumped up.
“Child, why are you so agitated? You’re not the one getting married!”
Pill King did not understand. But in the next second, Su Yun snatched the invitation from his hands and flipped through the invitation as he scanned through the invitation.
Indeed, it was Liu Xin Dong and Hu Qian Mei!
He looked at the date.
It was stated on the nineteen of the month.
That meant that he only had six days left.
Why was it in such a hurry?
Why did Hu Qian Mei suddenly agree to get married to Liu Xin Dong? There might be something fishy going on. After all, Hu Qian Mei’s special innate body physique was already obtained by him, why would she become a dual cultivation partner with somebody else?
Su Yun’s eyes glistened as he handed the invitation back into Pill King’s hands and turned to walk out.
“Child, where are you going?”
The Pill King called out.
But Su Yun could wait no longer. He had the Death Sword out. Leaping onto the sword’s body, he flew into the sky.
“Senior, I have to settle some private issues. I’ll leave for the moment. Xin Yun and Xing Yang, stay here in the Blossom Heart Valley. Don’t worry about me!”
With that, he turned into a beam of black radiance and vanished.
Everybody looked at one another in a daze.
What was happening?
The Death Sword trembled as it whistled through the skies.
Su Yun enveloped the death sword with Profound Spirit Qi and flew frantically forward towards the Ming Ying Sect.
Now that his cultivation had grown, the speed of maneuvering the swords had increased substantially.
However, Blossom Heart Valley and Ming Ying Sect had a distance apart. At this speed, he would only arrive a few days later.
Su Yun could simply not understand why Hu Qian Mei would become Liu Xin Dong’s cultivation partner. But he understood one thing, Hu Qian Mei was definitely not willing to marry Liu Xin Dong. Or In other words, she just did not like that man.
Hu Qian Mei was most probably forced.
Su Yun thought.
Hu Qian Mei and himself had some relationship. If she was in danger, he would not be anywhere better. Moreover, Hu Qian Mei had saved him. How could he just stand by one side and watch?
Thinking of when he hid in the room and eavesdropped the conversation between herself and Liu Xin Dong, Su Yun got even more anxious. He increased his speed to the max.
A Few days later.
The Death Sword fiercely crashed into the Ming Ying Sect.
Evil Qi reeked thick here. The baleful aura pervaded the entire place, The ground in the area was crushed to pieces.
There was a huge pit at the top of the mountain. Su Yun flicked his arm, dispersing the thick dust around him as walked out of the pit with the Death Sword.
The silhouette of the mountain peaks undulated up and down in the distance, the place was filled with rugged rocks with sparse vegetation. A few low cultivation spirit beasts roamed the mountains.
He set his gaze on the school located inside the mountain range, adjusted his cape and advanced forward.
