The Villain Has Something to Say
The Villain Has Something to Say – Chapter 29

Luo Jianqing never thought that he would see this book again in his lifetime, and… it was the second volume.

The previous book “Seeking Immortality” was already destroyed by Luo Jianqing once he confirmed that he remembered everything. If anyone else got their hands on something like that, it would undoubtedly cause a lot of trouble. There was no safe place to hide it, so the only appropriate way was to destroy it.

Luo Jianqing remembered that there were never any numbers like “one, two, three, four” in the first book “Seeking Immortality”. The ending of the book only wrote about Li Xiuchen leaving the Flowing Flame Valley and gaining the trust of many junior brothers and sisters in Taihua Mountain, taking over his position as the eldest disciple.

However, everything changed after Luo Jianqing was reborn.

Li Xiuchen never had any chance to show off, and he was not even the second disciple of Yuxiao Peak, but just an inconspicuous inner disciple of Haoming Peak among many other disciples. Luo Jianqing frowned and thought for a moment before finally clutching this book “Seeking Immortality 2” and flipping through it.

It only took less than fifteen minutes to finish reading it.

The memory of cultivators was always several times better than that of mortals, and Luo Jianqing, who was in the Nascent Soul stage, far surpassed cultivators of the same realm. After reading it, he immediately destroyed the book. The content of the book seemed to continue from the first one “Seeking Immortality”, telling the story of Li Xiuchen coming back from the Flowing Flame Valley with over a hundred Flame Fruits and exchanging them for many resources, causing even Xuan Lingzi to be amazed.

Over a hundred Flame Fruits!

Even if Xuan Lingzi broke through the restrictions of the Flowing Flame Valley and went there in person, it was not certain that he could get so many Flame Fruits.

Xuan Lingzi was capable of sweeping the Flowing Flame Valley, but Flame Fruits had no spiritual power fluctuations. When not being absorbed, they were just ordinary fruits that could not even be detected by spiritual sense. Therefore, Li Xiuchen’s terrifying luck could be seen from this. He became a real celebrity in Taihua Mountain.

These memories are no different from the ones of Luo Jianqing’s past life, but in “Seeking Immortality”, there are some interesting scenes involving him. For example, in the book, it is specifically written that Luo Jianqing left the Liuyan Valley on the last day and immediately took out more than twenty Flame Fruits that he had obtained.

The reactions of the crowd varied from surprise to admiration, and some even kept saying, “Daoist Luo is definitely the first in this Liuyan Valley adventure!”

Then, at the last moment before the gate closed, Li Xiuchen arrived.

With a crash, Li Xiuchen took out more than one hundred Flame Fruits, causing shock among the crowd. The book even says, “Seeing this scene, the exceptionally handsome white-clothed Senior Brother immediately turned black-faced, feeling extremely embarrassed. He angrily left with a swing of his sleeves, but no one noticed his departure. Even the phrase ‘definitely the first’ still echoed in their ears like a vicious slap, searing Luo Jianqing’s face!”

Regarding this, Luo Jianqing touched his face and said, “…”

…Although he was indeed very upset in his past life, his heart was not so narrow that he would be angry just because someone surpassed him. At that time, Luo Jianqing remembered that he was truly angry when he left, but it was not because of the so-called Flame Fruits, but because of Li Xiuchen’s words, “Fortunately, Master gave me some defensive treasures before leaving, otherwise I might not have been able to leave the Liuyan Valley.”

When he went to the Liuyan Valley, Xuan Lingzi only said, “Don’t embarrass Yu Xiao Peak.”

Why did Xuan Lingzi give Li Xiuchen treasures when he went there?

Thinking of this, Luo Jianqing’s blood boiled, but he soon thought of the person he had forced into a corner a few days ago. He felt both bitter and amused in his heart, and he did not understand why that person had treated him that way in his past life. At least, in his past life, Xuan Lingzi did not sever his soul and let him enter the Liuyan Valley.

“Is it true that only after he did something, Xuan Lingzi developed a relationship with him beyond master and disciple?

Ultimately, everything is unsolvable.

That person is hiding in the bamboo house next door like a turtle with a shrunken head, refusing to come out to see him. At this point, Luo Jianqing couldn’t think of any way to force that person out. At least he knelt in front of the bamboo house for over forty days, but that person didn’t budge.

Luo Jianqing looked down at the gray debris on the ground—the remains of “Seeking Immortality 2” after it was burned. He couldn’t help but laugh and loudly said, “Master, the sect’s grand competition, which takes place once every seven years, is coming up in a year. This time, will you come out to advise me and not let me shame Yu Xiao Peak again?”

There was even a hint of spiritual power mixed in his voice. As long as Wu Yin hadn’t completely abandoned his senses, he could definitely hear it.

However, there was only silence in response to Luo Jianqing.

Luo Jianqing was not angry. Instead, he shouted loudly again, “Master, what will you do if I lose in the sect’s grand competition?”

Still no response.

Luo Jianqing calmly said, “Since you’re not answering me, then I’ll just lose.”

“Click—”

A golden sword light suddenly shot through the crack of the door of the bamboo house, separating a strand of hair on Luo Jianqing’s forehead, as if threatening and warning him. However, seeing this scene, Luo Jianqing was even more pleasantly surprised. He was about to speak, but he felt a huge and terrifying pressure suddenly smashing down from the sky, pressing him onto the bamboo couch and unable to move.

The pressure of a Nascent Soul stage cultivator made Luo Jianqing unable to breathe, and sweat oozed from his full forehead. He tried hard to lift his body, but it was like being suppressed by millions of pounds of boulders; he tried to speak, but every word was stuck in his throat, as if someone had sealed his mouth.

Luo Jianqing refused to bow his head, but the pressure did not dissipate.

After a day and a night, as mysteriously as it came, the pressure suddenly disappeared.

Luo Jianqing’s tense body suddenly collapsed, and he lay on the bamboo couch, unable to even lift his fingers. He had been trying to resist the other party, but the difference of several major cultivation stages allowed the other party to seal his mouth with just a thought, which was really unreasonable.

However…

“For the first time in forty-one years, I seem to have defied you like this… Wu Yin?”

This sentence fell like a stone in the ocean, without any echo.

Luo Jianqing, however, lay on the bamboo couch and chuckled softly. He covered his eyes with his palm, but the laughter couldn’t help but spill out of his throat.

This person liked him. This person really liked him. This person really, really liked him…

Afterwards, Luo Jianqing stopped intentionally provoking Xuan Lingzi and began to recall various plot points from “Seeking Immortality 2”. He then sat cross-legged and began to meditate, repairing his body and consolidating his cultivation.

Smooth spiritual energy circulated through his body, nourishing every dried up meridian. However, when it reached his shoulders, it suddenly stopped. Xuan Lingzi had pierced through Luo Jianqing’s shoulder with a magnificent golden sword qi, severely damaging the meridians in that area. Even Yu Qingzi had said that only external application of medicine was possible and the main method of healing was relying on Luo Jianqing to repair it with his own spiritual energy.

For the next ten days, Luo Jianqing kept his eyes tightly closed, continuously trying to clear the blocked meridians with his spiritual energy.

The meridians in Luo Jianqing’s body were like great rivers and were almost twice as wide as those of an ordinary Nascent Soul cultivator. Each meridian was incredibly tough and could withstand rough impacts of spiritual energy, but when they were damaged, it naturally became much more difficult to repair them compared to an ordinary cultivator.

After several unsuccessful attempts, Luo Jianqing took out a “Return to Jade Pill” and swallowed it. The pill instantly dissolved in his mouth, and suddenly, fierce spiritual energy surged in his dantian. The energy was incredibly vast, yet very gentle, obediently remaining still in his dantian.

The “Return to Jade Pill” was a seventh-grade earth tier pill, and less than three people in the entire Taihua Mountain could refine it! This pill was given to Luo Jianqing by Yu Qingzi to help him recover. The ingredients of this pill were extremely rare, and even Yu Qingzi was missing two of them. It was said that Xuan Lingzi had found one of the rare spiritual herbs from his own collection, and the other one was obtained after begging Hao Xingzi, the head of Cangshuang Peak, for a day.

After all, Luo Jianqing was only a Nascent Soul cultivator, so not all the spiritual energy and medicinal properties of the “Return to Jade Pill” were fully utilized. There was still a pill the size of a fingernail spinning in his dantian, while the rest had turned into spiritual energy.

With the help of this spiritual energy, Luo Jianqing began to clear the blocked meridians.

With the help of the spiritual power, Luo Jianqing began to attack the blocked meridians.

When the spiritual power collided with the meridians clogged with blood, Luo Jianqing groaned and his face turned pale. It felt like a knife was cutting through his body, using spiritual power as a blade, cutting through the shrunken meridians one by one and clearing the blood inside. The once tough and resilient meridians were now so painful to cut that even Luo Jianqing couldn’t suppress the groans in his throat, and his lips turned white.

With each cut, Luo Jianqing’s body trembled slightly. And unknowingly, the white-robed elder who was meditating on a bamboo bed behind a wall also turned pale, tightly gripping his fingers and closing his eyes.

The initial meridians were painful but still bearable for Luo Jianqing. However, when the spiritual power and medicinal properties of the Pill reached the point where Xuan Lingzi’s sword aura had pierced, Luo Jianqing trembled all over and finally fainted from the pain.

In the adjacent bamboo house, Xuan Lingzi suddenly stood up and instinctively walked towards the door. However, he stopped after taking two steps and hesitantly looked at the ground. After an hour, he suddenly waved his sleeve and turned back to the bamboo bed.

A day later, Luo Jianqing woke up, and the Pill in his dantian had dimmed somewhat.

Luo Jianqing’s pupils shrank, and he quickly controlled the sharp spiritual power to cut through the blood in his meridians.

“Ah!”

The intense pain surged to his brain, causing Luo Jianqing to involuntarily scream in pain. As soon as he made the sound, Xuan Lingzi next door trembled all over, and his fingers shook slightly.

Meanwhile, Luo Jianqing realized that he couldn’t waste any more time. He couldn’t keep fainting because the Return to Jade Pill wouldn’t wait for him. If he kept wasting time like this, the pill’s power would run out, and he would need to take another one.

“Earth-level seventh-grade Return to jade Pill, where can I find so many?”

“Even if  Venerable Yu Qingzi can refine it again, where can the materials be found?”

Jianqing’s eyebrows furrowed tightly, and his clothes were already soaked with sweat. He pondered for a moment and suddenly took out a white jade bottle from his storage ring, then hesitated for no moment before swallowing the black pill inside the bottle.

Xuan Lingzi next door suddenly opened his eyes and exclaimed, “Jianqing!”

Naturally, this sound did not reach Jianqing’s ears. He had already been eroded by the excruciating pain, which was like cutting flesh and crushing bones. The moment the black pill entered his mouth, the pain in his shoulder immediately increased a hundredfold! If the pain earlier had caused Jianqing to faint uncontrollably, then the pain now was as if his heart and bones were being gouged out, and his flesh was being cut into strips, and then he was being roasted on a scorching fire.

This was the second thing that Venerable Yu Qingzi gave to Jianqing when he left Qinglan Peak, a heavenly-grade sixth-grade Qingshen Pill.

The use of the Qingshen Pill was not significant; it only made the user stay awake for ten days and nights.

The heavenly-grade Qingshen Pill was terrifying. Once taken, the user’s spirit would not dissipate even if they were chopped into ten thousand pieces. They would feel the excruciating pain for the entire ten days before finally dying.

However, for Jianqing, he did not want to kill himself but force himself to stay awake.

The Qingshen Pill amplified every sensation in his body, making his five senses a hundred times more sensitive. Whether it was pain or anything else, it would be magnified a hundredfold. But as long as he could remain conscious, everything would be enough.

Without hesitation, Luo Jianqing wielded his spiritual energy blade and once again sliced into his meridians. He gritted his teeth, continuously removing the blockages in his blood vessels. The pain was so intense that a metallic taste filled his throat, and he wished he could die immediately. But three days later, he had completed the task, clearing all the blockages.

Next was the process of stitching his meridians with spiritual energy.

In truth, Master Yu Qingzi could have helped Luo Jianqing with his recovery, but there was a chance that it could leave hidden injuries. So Master Yu Qingzi gave Luo Jianqing the choice of whether to choose painlessness or a complete recovery.

Luo Jianqing’s choice was clear.

Stitching his meridians was also very painful, but after enduring the previous pain, Luo Jianqing had already grown accustomed to it.

When he finished the last meridian, Luo Jianqing’s body shook, and he spat out a mouthful of blood before falling backward.

In the neighboring bamboo hut, Xuan Lingzi finally released his grip, his palm already bloody and mangled, but he didn’t say a word.

After three days of unconsciousness, Luo Jianqing slowly woke up.

He scanned his body with his spiritual sense and found that his body had fully recovered, and his meridians were even stronger and wider, thanks to the invisible nourishment of the jade pill’s medicinal properties. He nodded in satisfaction and officially began to consolidate his primordial spirit.

In the center of his dantian, the small primordial spirit had just formed and was still sleeping with its eyes closed.

When Luo Jianqing first formed his Nascent Soul in Liuyan Valley, he quickly left the valley with Mo Qiu and didn’t have time to solidify his realm. After arriving at Gujia Family Village, he was tested by the fate of his parents and couldn’t settle down. Back at Taihua Mountain, he even had a dispute with Xuan Lingzi.

Therefore, Luo Jianqing’s Nascent Soul realm is still quite unstable to this day, and as the venerable Yu Qingzi said, he is likely to fall back to the Golden Core realm.

Time is running out, so Luo Jianqing activated his spiritual power. Strands of invisible power formed in the air, lightly waving and grabbing the abundant spiritual energy in the air.

The spiritual energy originally looked very disgusted with Luo Jianqing, and refused to come near him. However, the overbearing invisible power forcibly snatched the spiritual energy and stuffed it into Luo Jianqing’s body without giving it any chance to refuse.

This invisible power is like a bully who bullies others, and the spiritual energy is like a poor weakling. The bully rudely snatches all the spiritual energy he sees, and you dare to resist? Just grab it! Snatch it from the hands of the heavens and take it!

As the invisible power slowly stretches out and is about to touch the adjacent bamboo house, it suddenly stops.

If Luo Jianqing were to open his eyes at this moment, he would probably see that the usually “bullying men and women” invisible power actually nodded its head twice obediently, as if greeting someone. Then, like a coward, it avoided Xuan Lingzi’s bamboo house and continued to rush towards the spiritual energy in other places.

When Luo Jianqing first practiced the “Nine Seizing Heavens Scriptures,” he tried to reveal a little bit of his power, but Xuan Lingzi had no reaction. Then he tried a few more times, and when he found that even Xuan Lingzi seemed unable to sense this power, he confidently used it.

The “Nine Heavens Stealing Scriptures” frantically stole the spiritual energy on Yuxiao Peak, all of which were captured into Luo Jianqing’s body. The spiritual power increased more and more, and came in faster and faster, until it suddenly formed a whirlpool, continuously squeezing out the spiritual energy on Yuxiao Peak.

Taihua Mountain is located in the center of the Xuantian Continent and already has one of the best spiritual veins in the world. Yuxiao Peak is located in the center of the seven peaks of Taihua Mountain, and a whole top-level spiritual vein is only available for Xuan Lingzi and Luo Jianqing to use, which has always been envied by others.

And now, the spiritual power was rushing over, crowding into Luo Jianqing’s body. Seeing this, Xuan Lingzi suddenly got up from his bamboo bed, walked to the bed, and waved his sleeve to cast a barrier. Immediately, the movements on Yuxiao Peak were isolated from the outside world, even Hao Xingzi, the head of the sect, could not know what was happening.

Luo Jianqing naturally had no idea about all of this. Once the forcibly taken spiritual power entered his body, it became his own. He circulated this spiritual power throughout his entire body, carefully delivering it to the small infant in his dantian, causing the weak infant to slowly become stronger. [1]his primordial spirit

The infant was like a miniature version of Luo Jianqing, exquisitely beautiful. Originally pale, with weak limbs, it was lying in a blue spherical spiritual power barrier, with closed eyes and sleeping deeply. As more and more spiritual power gently touched and flowed into its body, its skin gradually became rosy and its cheeks were plump and tender.

Luo Jianqing held his breath and looked solemnly at the small infant. Until the last strand of spiritual power was infused, Luo Jianqing was just about to manipulate the void power to snatch some more spiritual energy. Unexpectedly, the small infant slowly opened its eyes! Rubbing its sleepy eyes with its small hands, the infant slowly sat up.

Luo Jianqing’s heart trembled, and just as he was about to carefully examine it, he saw a green light radiating from the infant’s forehead. With widened eyes, the next moment, Luo Jianqing saw a four-petal green lotus suddenly appearing between the infant’s eyebrows!

“Could it be that after cultivating the Nine Lotus Heart Scripture, even the eyebrow of the Nascent Soul will have the lotus sword pattern? No, what I am cultivating is not the Nine Lotus Heart Scripture, but the Nine Seizure Heaven Record. So, is it because of the Nine Lotus Heart Scripture or the Nine Seizure Heaven Record? Does Master’s Nascent Soul also have this sword pattern?”

Luo Jianqing thought about it for a long time in his heart, but he couldn’t come up with a conclusion. Of course, he couldn’t ask Xuan Lingzi either. Even if Xuan Lingzi would talk to him, if the sword pattern on the Nascent Soul was caused by the Nine Seizure Heaven Record instead of the Nine Lotus Heart Scripture, Luo Jianqing would expose himself.

“It seems that it’s better not to let the primordial spirit leave the body after entering the Nascent Soul stage in the future,” Luo Jianqing thought to himself. “Unless… one day I meet Master’s primordial spirit and he also has the sword pattern, then it’s possible.”

Unless it is a life and death battle, the primordial spirit of a cultivator will not easily leave the body.

Even in the past, Luo Jianqing did not dare to make such a request to his master. It was too disrespectful. And now, it is even more difficult.

Luo Jianqing temporarily suppressed these worries in his heart. He continued to cultivate for two more months, and when he confirmed that he had consolidated his realm, he got up and left the bamboo house.

When he came to the door of another bamboo house, Luo Jianqing bowed respectfully, but his words could make people faint: “Master, do you know how to cultivate the dual cultivation technique?”

In response to Luo Jianqing, a terrifying sword aura surged out.

This time, the golden sword aura was very careful. It only knocked Luo Jianqing away without causing any harm, and then ignored him.

Luo Jianqing laughed softly twice, whispered “disciple is going to discuss something with Fourth Junior Brother,” and then turned and left. His figure turned into a stream of light and flew away from YuXiao Peak, leaving Xuan Lingzi with a grim face in the bamboo house, wishing to expel this disciple who spoke nonsense and had no manners from the sect and never see him again.

However, after calming down, Xuan Lingzi couldn’t help but mutter, “The method of dual cultivation? How exactly is it done…”

His voice abruptly stopped, and Xuan Lingzi angrily waved his sleeve, causing the bamboo house next door belonging to Luo Jianqing to instantly disappear.

At this moment, Luo Jianqing was unaware that his own bamboo house had been destroyed by his furious master. He stopped on the Haoming Peak and soon saw Xie Zizhuo whom he hadn’t seen in a long time.
