Bai Jingchen sat on the ground and drank shallowly. He drank leisurely until the evening.
He was now in high spirits and couldn’t fall asleep, so he built a bonfire on the spot and looked at the burning flame silently lost in thought. He let his thoughts wander randomly.
The images of his past appeared in his mind.
He was once trampled underfoot, even though he was unwilling, people insulted and ridiculed him, and he was ostracized openly and secretly.
He used to be unable to sleep all night, even if he was sleepy, but thinking of the humiliating days, he felt his heart burned.
He once begged for an opportunity, but no matter how hard he tried, no opportunity dropped into his lap to help him.
A year ago, he never thought that his cultivation base would leap from the seventh layer of Qi Refining to the middle-stage of Foundation Building in one year.
This kind of cultivation speed was simply unheard of.
And these, it was undeniable, were almost all the credit of Su Wenliang.
Bai Jingchen recalled every detail since his acquaintance with Su Wenliang. He once resented him and wanted to be responsible for him.
But the reality was always changing in various ways, to the extent that these emotions, at this moment after his strength increased, seem completely not worth to mention.
He was not a wolf-hearted disciple, since he indeed received Su Wenliang’s favor, since Su Wenliang was the one who extended a helping hand to him, since Su Wenliang helped him improve his cultivation and he smoothly entered the Foundation Building, he should reflect on his attitude towards Su Wenliang.
In fact, between the two of them, it was nothing more than the deeper matter of Double Cultivation that made the relationship between the two of them so complicated as it is today.
He looked up at the direction of the mansion, where Su Wenliang was sleeping peacefully.
Bai Jingchen thought, ‘Maybe I should treat Su Wenliang better and respect him more. Since he taught me cultivation, no matter what his purpose is, he is a master I should respect.’
Most importantly, according to what Su Wenliang said before, they wouldn’t be involved for too long in this life. So take advantage of this time together to leave some good impressions on each other was much better than memories that both sides dislike.
He just spent the night like this. By the time it was dawn the next day, Su Wenliang walked out of the mansion.
At this time, Su Wenliang was no longer muddle-headed because of drunkenness, and he returned to his former indifferent again.
He took out a storage bag and threw it into Bai Jingchen’s arms, and said in a flat and calm voice, “Since you have already entered the Foundation Building, the following tasks will be entrusted to you. I will wait for you at the exit place for half a month. After half a month, you just come to the exit place to find me, and I will take you out of the training place.”
Bai Jingchen looked up at him and agreed, and took the initiative to ask for the first time, “Then…what about the Double Cultivation on the night of full moon?”
As he spoke, he stared intently at the expression on Su Wenliang’s face, and saw the other party’s face instantly became gloomy when he heard the word “Double Cultivation”. He frowned and looked impatient. His chest heaved a few times, as if he was suppressing his anger.
Seeing his appearance, Bai Jingchen suddenly felt an indescribable pleasure in his heart. He said with a faint expression on his face, “Isn’t we must Double Cultivation on the night of full moon every month for your body? If we split up, are you going to come to me specifically on the night of full moon half a month later?”
Su Wenliang had nothing to say. It was indeed the only choice.
Anyway, he didn’t want to see Bai Jingchen’s face for the time being, so he naturally had to act separately, lest he would kill the male protagonist directly when he was unhappy, then he would court death himself by the way, having a self-destruction with the system.
He frowned as he thought about it, and replied, “I will…come to you on the night of full moon.” After finished speaking, he disappeared in front of Bai Jingchen in an instant, as if he was in a hurry to leave.
Bai Jingchen sat quietly on the spot for a while, subconsciously recalling Su Wenliang’s expression just now, and a kind of almost abnormal pleasure arose involuntarily.
In his opinion, Su Wenliang had always acted so aloof, unattainable, arrogant and fierce. When there was a look of embarrassment and impatience on his face, that look made his heart tremble and beat, and could even be said to be engrossed and happy.
Bai Jingchen was aware of the baffling thought that suddenly arose in his heart, and raised his eyebrows in surprise, but he immediately threw it to the back of his mind.
He extinguished the bonfire and patted the dust on his body and then opened his storage bag to take the map marked by Su Wenliang and started to do the task.
He chose the nearest place marked on the map and walked over.
Because of the improvement of his cultivation base and the inexplicable changes that occurred on his body, his strength increased sharply. Even though the remaining tasks were much more difficult than before, Bai Jingchen completed them much faster.
He also didn’t want to do Double Cultivation in the open, so he consciously speeded up his pace and shortened the time to do the task.
Su Wenliang originally estimated that it would take half a month for Bai Jingchen to come out, but in less than half a month, only eleven days, Bai Jingchen walked up to him and handed the storage bag contained all the collected spiritual plants and demonic beasts over.
Su Wenliang took the storage bag and used his divine sense to see and then looked at Bai Jingchen with a surprise.
For some reason, he always felt that something had changed in Bai Jingchen, and this change shocked him.
Su Wenliang frowned as he looked at Bai Jingchen. After a while, seeing that his face was still handsome, and he was wearing the same clothes and his eyes were still a little dull as before, so he turned around and walked towards the exit.
He thought in his heart, ‘Maybe I’m thinking too much. How could such an astonishing, almost frightening change happen to the male protagonist in just ten days? Well, it must be.’
As Bai Jingchen walked behind him, Su Wenliang turned around and took out a jade plate from the mustard space, then threw it to Bai Jingchen and said, “Your cultivation is growing too fast, and it’s easy to attract suspicion. The training place on the back mountain is a place well known by everyone in the sect. It has been visited by disciples for a long time, and there is not such a big opportunity. You wear this jade pendant first. It can hide your real cultivation base. Unless it’s a cultivator at the Nascent Soul stage or higher, no one will see your current cultivation base.”
Bai Jingchen held the jade plate and looked at it, then slightly curled his lips and said with a smile, “Thank you, Master.”
When Su Wenliang heard this, he looked at him with wide eyes, and when he saw the smile on his face that made people feel like a spring breeze, he turned his head away uncomfortably.
He took the lead in walking out of the exit of the training place. After they arrived at the sect station, he handed over the token and the assigned storage bag, and after completing the procedures, he took Bai Jingchen to the teleportation array to return to the Heaven Spread Sect’s main mountain range.
Seeing Bai Jingchen’s strange look along the way, Su Wenliang endured and endured, and finally asked, “Did something happen to you in the past few days?”
Bai Jingchen looked at him puzzled and said, “No, why did Master ask such a question?”
When Su Wenliang heard Bai Jingchen called himself “Master”, he frowned unconsciously and asked, “Didn’t you just call me Su Wenliang before?”
Bai Jingchen smiled shyly when he heard this and said, “In the past, it’s me who was ignorant and didn’t understand Master’s kindness to me, so I forgot the principles of master-student ethics. This is my fault. After today, I will definitely fix it, and I hope Master won’t have an estrangement with me because of this.”
Su Wenliang clenched his back molar teeth tightly. What’s the matter with this feeling of powerlessness? Why did the male protagonist suddenly change his style? Completely unsuitable, scoundrel!
Su Wenliang went to the Mission Hall to do the handover with a stiff expression. He handed the storage bag over to the steward for counting and exchange.
This period of time was a bit long. Because they got a lot of things this time, the steward was a little shocked when he was counting. He couldn’t help turning his head to look at Su Wenliang and Bai Jingchen several times, and then lowered his head again.
After he finally finished counting, he calculated the approximate points, about over 100,000 points, which were very much better than ordinary disciples who only return with a few hundred points at a time. The strength of the youngest Core Formation cultivator in the Heaven Spread Sect was really not to be underestimated.
According to Su Wenliang’s instructions, the steward divided the points into two and assigned them to the identity tokens of Su Wenliang and Bai Jingchen, respectively.
After this matter was dealt with, Bai Jingchen originally thought that Su Wenliang would return to the Aohan Peak immediately, but he didn’t expect that he would take him to the Library Pavilion.
Bai Jingchen looked up at the Library Pavilion, and his heart felt a little turbulent. He originally thought that it would take him a long time to enter here, but he didn’t expect that today, he came to the Library Pavilion and entered the second floor.
Because of the led of Su Wenliang who was disguised as a Core Formation cultivator, Bai Jingchen also entered the second floor with his Qi Refining cultivator disguised.
According to Su Wenliang’s instructions, he selected a few cultivation methods that were suitable for him. After choosing, he followed Su Wenliang to record it and returned to the Aohan Peak.
Su Wenliang sat on the white jade lotus seat and said to Bai Jingchen, “I will give you a month to consolidate your cultivation. Ten days later, we will go to the Mission Hall to get some tasks outside the sect. You will follow me to travel around the Rook Islet World to practice and increase your knowledge.”
Bai Jingchen nodded when he heard this, and said, “Yes, Master.” He originally had this plan, so he naturally agreed when Su Wenliang proposed it.
After Su Wenliang finished speaking, he calculated the time and knew that tonight was the night of full moon. He said to Bai Jingchen with a complicated expression, “You know what day it is today, right?”
Bai Jingchen was stunned for a while, then realized the deep meaning in Su Wenliang’s words, and said, “I will take the initiative to come over tonight.”
Hearing this, Su Wenliang looked at Bai Jingchen with puzzled eyes. If it wasn’t for the fact that the soul of the person in front of him was still Bai Jingchen, he would have thought that this person was a fake, otherwise how could he become so obedient and respectful? He was completely unlike the person who called him “Su Wenliang” and “Pervert” before.
He couldn’t figure out the change in Bai Jingchen’s heart, so he waved his hands and said, “Then you can withdraw and come back after you wash up.”
The corners of Bai Jingchen’s mouth twitched when he heard this, but he still walked out respectfully.
Bai Jingchen returned to his room. He sat in front of the table and ordered the puppet to make spiritual tea, and then began to think silently.
He was actually looking forward to this Double Cultivation, otherwise he wouldn’t have mentioned it in front of Su Wenliang many times. Although he didn’t know the specific reason, he found a reason to look forward to the Double Cultivation.
On the one hand, it was because after the Double Cultivation, his cultivation base would improve, and on the other hand, he wanted to see the dream similar to the foreseen dream again.
Bai Jingchen poured a cup of spiritual tea and drank it slowly. He didn’t want to cultivate for the time being, so he sat and rested for a while, then went to the bathroom to take a bath, and after making sure he was clean, he changed his clothes.
He sat down and waited for his hair to dry naturally. Seeing that the sky outside was darkening, he knew it was almost time, so he got up and directly went to Su Wenliang’s secret room.
