It took Bai Jingchen a lot of effort to leave White Horse Mountain this time. He returned to the gate of White Horse City and planned to continue to receive tasks. He had gained a lot from the intensive training arrangement last month, so he planned to go on like this for the next three years.
He went to the mission distribution place, sent Jiang Yanbei a communication talisman, and then began to browse the tasks arranged above.
But the chaotic environment in the mission distribution hall suddenly became quiet.
Bai Jingchen was puzzled, and when he turned his head, he saw everyone was looking toward the doorway with a little flattering expression on their face. He frowned, and looked over, and saw a handsome young male cultivator, carrying a young man, walked in.
Bai Jingchen’s eyes swept over this young male cultivator, and then he looked away without interest. He glanced at the somewhat familiar young man and realized this was the arrogant young man who suddenly appeared when he was doing the Flame Bird mission on White Horse Mountain a few days ago.
Seeing the young male cultivator’s gaze swept across the mission distribution hall, and finally fell on his body, Bai Jingchen understood this person might be the young city lord of White Horse City. It was no wonder so many people pay attention to him, as he was indeed a person with a very high status in White Horse City.
Bai Jingchen didn’t want to offend him, so he pulled himself together to deal with this person.
The young city lord came over with his wife’s younger brother, and said to Bai Jingchen, “I’m Jimo Wenhan. My wife’s younger brother a few days ago rashly bothered Sir to do a task, and I have always wanted to come to say sorry to you. It’s just that you have been gone for many days without a trace, and I can’t find you, so I dragged it until today. I hope you will forgive me.”
After his words fell, everyone here either let out a ‘oh’ in their hearts or in their mouths, and then turned their head away, each doing their own things.
After all, such a scene was common in White Horse City. The young city lord’s brother-in-law was indeed a troublesome character. It was difficult for the young city lord to have such an identity, but was burdened by his brother-in-law.
When the young man heard this, he sneered disdainfully, and muttered in a low voice, “Who wants you to meddle in my affairs? It’s annoying.”
Although he lowered his voice, the five senses of cultivators were strong, and even the slightest disturbance couldn’t escape their eyes and ears, and his words naturally heard by Bai Jingchen and Jimo Wenhan, who were closer to him.
A trace of embarrassment and a wry smile appeared on Jimo Wenhan’s face. He glanced at Bai Jingchen, and saw his face was expressionless, so he said to the young man, “I don’t want to interfere with your affairs, but if I don’t, your big sister will come to discipline you, your big sister...sigh, forget it, you apologized to this sir, I...”
The young man interrupted him impatiently, glared at Bai Jingchen angrily, and said, “I just want the Flame Bird’s demon core. Why didn’t he give it to me?”
Hearing this young man’s words, Bai Jingchen found it laughable. He raised his eyebrows with a half-smile, and said to Jimo Wenhan, “This is just a trivial matter, I didn’t take it to heart at all. Young City Lord is being polite. As for apologizing, there is no need. Please allow me to continue to find some tasks to do.”
Jimo Wenhan smiled and agreed. He pulled the young man by force and turned around to leave.
From the corner of his eye, Bai Jingchen glimpsed the young man looking at him with bright eyes when he was leaving, and couldn’t help feeling a chill in his heart.
He turned his head to continue looking at the tasks. At this time, Jiang Yanbei had already walked to his side and asked, “What happened just now? I came late, and only saw the young city lord walked out. By the way, the young man next to him is the one we met at White Horse Mountain.”
Bai Jingchen summarized what happened just now in a few words and told Jiang Yanbei.
Hearing this, Jiang Yanbei clicked his tongue twice, and said, “Young City Lord is kind in nature, very humble and gentle. As for that young man, his name is Shangguan Jin. He is the legitimate young master of the second largest clan in White Horse City. His older sister is Shangguan Yao, the young city lord’s wife. It’s said that she is the most beautiful woman in White Horse City, but her health is extremely bad. She took medicine frequently and almost died many times. Sigh...with such a troublesome younger brother, no matter how good her health is, she will be dragged down.”
Bai Jingchen just listened, went in his left ear and went out his right ear. While Jiang Yanbei was still sighing, he had already received three tasks with comparatively large difficulty.
Seeing this, Jiang Yanbei couldn’t help saying in his heart, ‘No wonder Bai Jingchen’s cultivation has improved so fast, he practiced so frantically day and night, he is simply a cultivation maniac. I now somewhat understand why Master likes him.’
Jiang Yanbei saw that Bai Jingchen went to get the task token by himself, so he followed behind him and went to White Horse Mountain to do the task together.
However, in the middle of the journey, they met that young man named Shangguan Jin. He somehow got rid of Jimo Wenhan and came to White Horse Mountain faster than them to wait for them.
Jiang Yanbei said, “What are you doing here again? Could it be that you are unwilling to concede the last matter, so you want to make up for it this time?”
Shangguan Jin shrugged his shoulders innocently and said, “I just have nothing to do, and want to make trouble for you guys.”
Bai Jingchen looked at him coldly, stepped forward, and directly knocked him out, and then turned to leave.
Seeing this, Jiang Yanbei chuckled, and followed Bai Jingchen.
It was just that he didn’t know what was going on, but Bai Jingchen often encountered Shangguan Jin on the way to the task. He usually ignored him, but as long as Shangguan Jin spoke rudely or caused trouble for them, then Bai Jingchen wouldn’t show mercy.
Shangguan Jin was the legitimate young master of the Shangguan clan, and his older sister was the young city lord’s wife, so Bai Jingchen naturally wouldn’t kill him. But he knew that even if he taught Shangguan Jin a lesson, no one would come out to stop him, so he did it unceremoniously.
In this way, after a year of such a life, Bai Jingchen tired of it, so he sat down face to face with Shangguan Jin, planning to have a good conversation.
Bai Jingchen said, “You made things difficult for me and Jiang Yanbei. You blocked us in every possible way, isn’t it because you want to retaliate with us? I sincerely apologize to you again. I was blind before. I shouldn’t have offended you.”
Shangguan Jin raised his eyebrows and smiled brightly when he heard this, and said, “It’s good that you know. I’m very satisfied.”
“Then you shouldn’t argue with small people like us and leave.”
When Bai Jingchen got up, Shangguan Jin suddenly said, “Bai Jingchen, the concubine son of the Bai clan. It’s said that four years ago he was still an eighth layer Qi Refining outer sect attendant, but a year later, his strength improved by leaps and bounds, and he became a peak middle-stage Foundation Building disciple. In three years, he has cultivated to the peak late-stage of Foundation Building, which is much faster than ordinary people’s cultivation speed. What tricks do you have?”
Upon hearing this, Bai Jingchen knew he hadn’t said the main point, so he sat back expressionlessly and watched him to continue talking.
Shangguan Jin guessed innocently, “Could it be because of your master, who has changed his personality, Yang Aohan?”
After that, he carefully looked at Bai Jingchen’s expression, and saw that he was actually calm, so he said boringly, “I won't tell outsiders, and you can’t kill me, because...”
He leaned over and said in a low voice, “I’m a late-stage Core Formation cultivator. It’s still too early for you to deal with me. But with your cultivation speed, it won’t be long before you can reach the late-stage Core Formation.”
Speaking of this, he clicked his tongue twice, and suddenly said with a smile, “I may know something I must not. Who let you so good-looking, made me can’t give up, so I always like to tease you?”
He laughed heartily, and said, “In exchange, I will tell you my secret.” He tapped the table with his index finger, and said coldly, “I have four selves, so my behavior is sometimes mad. Since so, I simply show more thoroughly and completely hide myself. The reason why I followed you before was because I valued your growth, and I have a hunch that you will become extraordinary in the future.”
“So...do you want to cooperate to see? Cooperate with me, this future patriarch of the Shangguan clan and the new city lord of White Horse City?”
Bai Jingchen’s heart moved, and after looking at him for a while, he raised his eyebrows and smiled slightly, nodded, and said, “Why not?”
The two of them were talking alone, so Jiang Yanbei didn’t know the content. The only thing he knew was that there was an extra young master who stirred up trouble in their two people team.
He didn’t know what happened between the two, so that Bai Jingchen, who originally wanted to make a clean break with Shangguan Jin, not only changed his mind, but accepted Shangguan Jin, and started the task together from then on.
When Jiang Yanbei reported this almost unbelievable matter to Su Wenliang through the communication talisman, Su Wenliang only listened indifferently and burned the communication talisman.
In the plot, since Bai Jingchen was the male protagonist, there would inevitably be one or another male supporting character around him to help him or hinder him.
And this Shangguan Jin was one of them, but the time they met in the plot was five years earlier.
Shangguan Jin was a person with quite awkward identity in the Shangguan clan.
As for the Shangguan clan, in this novel, it was a strange clan. The women of this clan wouldn’t live too long. It was said that because the men of the Shangguan clan have a relatively strong life, all the women of this clan were restrained to die.
Not only the daughters of the Shangguan clan but also the women who married into the Shangguan clan, strangely couldn't live for too long.
For example, the patriarch of the Shangguan clan of this generation, that was Shangguan Jin’s father, married more than a dozen wives and had over twenty children in his life. In the end, only one daughter survived for a long time, which was Shangguan Jin’s older sister from the same mother who married to the young city lord.
The children born from these different wives would naturally not be very close. The men of the Shangguan clan were also in an abnormal state, but this sickness differed from the sickness that women manifest. Their sickness was manifested in the spirit.
According to Su Wenliang’s understanding, all the men in this clan were mental disorder.
Shangguan Jin was one of them, and his sickness manifested as schizophrenia.
Don’t be fooled by the fact that he was a young man who caused trouble most of the time, but he had a quadruple personality, and the main personality could be switched to the sub-personality at will, which was equivalent to an activated skill. He could show a personality at any time, and then kill in all directions.
His main personality was usually sloppy, but the first sub-personality was a serious and rigid late-stage Core Formation cultivator, the second sub-personality was a ruthless devil cultivator, and the third sub-personality was a strategist wise man and trusted adviser.
The combination of these four personalities was enough to make him stand out from the masses.
The main personality that he usually displayed was actually a show of disguise and sickness flare up.
Anyone had never discovered the matter of his split personality. Only his twin sister knew a little about it, so she entrusted the young city lord to take care of him, because she knew that her younger brother, Shangguan Jin, was not simple.
To sum up the above points, Su Wenliang didn’t mind at all that the male protagonist Bai Jingchen got along with such a mental disorder. After all, Bai Jingchen sometimes acted too upright, but such an upright character was the easiest to court trouble.
In that case, let Shangguan Jin, who could switch his personality and skills at any time, guide Bai Jingchen to grow and progress.
Thus, Su Wenliang turned a blind eye to this matter and completely ignored it.
The reason why Bai Jingchen agreed to form an alliance with Shangguan Jin was precisely because of Shangguan Jin’s extraordinary strength and strong wisdom.
He had long since discovered that Shangguan Jin had hidden his cultivation base, otherwise he wouldn’t have appeared on his path several times, which was enough to show his ability.
So, when he heard Shangguan Jin’s proposal, he thought for a while and agreed.
In fact, after getting along, he realized Shangguan Jin’s split and abnormality more deeply. The way they get along with each other was still noisy and unpleasant to the eye, but this didn’t prevent them from establishing a stable cooperative relationship.
In this way, three years passed in a flash.
After Bai Jingchen said goodbye to Jiang Yanbei, he saw Shangguan Jin standing on the side overcome with boredom. After three years together, he knew Shangguan Jin’s nature well, so he said, “Goodbye.”
Shangguan Jin glanced at him and said peculiarly, “Are you going to stay with your master again?”
Bai Jingchen was choked by him and had nothing to say. Once on the night of full moon before, Shangguan Jin came to his Immortal’s Cave to look for him, but he couldn’t find him. Then he paid attention to this matter, and suddenly remembered that when they got along before, for a few days around the night of full moon, he wouldn’t go out to do tasks, so he paid attention to this matter. In the final analysis, it was because his days were too leisurely.
Later, Shangguan Jin followed him, and found out about the matter of meeting with his master, and he would always mock him about it.
Bai Jingchen ignored him, and after glancing at him, he said, “Yes, I’m leaving. See you later.”
His sword flew towards the cultivation cave opened up by Su Wenliang in White Horse Mountain.
