Although his words about her love for He Wenchao felt like a blow to Baili Qingmaio’s head, she was different from Yin Hanjiang. Yin Hanjiang could not care about the lives of others but Baili Qingmiao from the very beginning was not that kind of person.
The words that woke her up were “willing to give up everything for He Wenchao”. She had always recognized her feelings and Baili Qingmiao subconsciously felt that she had already given up so much for He Wenchao so if she loved him so much, why did He Wenchao still treat her like this? She couldn’t accept it.
But now it suddenly occurred to her that she didn’t seem to have done too much for He Wenchao.
Baili Qingmiao asked: “Patriarch Yin, why do you think I gave up everything for my senior martial brother?”
Yin Hanjiang said: “You took the snow flame for him…”
No, Venerable did tell him before that originally the snow flame was obtained by Baili Qingmiao for He Wenchao, but now it was absorbed by Yin Hanjiang. The Broken Mountain Meteorite Iron was also originally obtained by Baili Qingmiao for He Wenchao but now it also belonged to Yin Hanjiang.
The person who took a lot of things from Baili Qingmiao and Venerable was Yin Hanjiang.
Yin Hanjiang instantly became silent and quietly looked at Baili Qingmiao, making it a little awkward.
Yin Hanjiang didn’t care about outsiders’ life or death, but he had been alone for so many years and except for Wen Renhe’s saving grace and teaching righteousness, he didn’t owe anyone anything. However, when you thought about it, he owed Baili Qingmiao through Wen Renhe, at least the snow flame which Baili Qingmiao got only after she had nearly frozen to death in Wanli Ice Field.
Fortunately, Baili Qingmiao didn’t care about Yin Hanjiang’s attitude, she shook her head and said: “You also think I don’t seem to give anything for my senior brother, right? But why do I always have a feeling that for my love for my senior martial brother, I have already given up a lot of things?”
“When my senior martial brother’s foundation was destroyed, I did get the seven-colored blue lotus heart for him but in the end seven-colored blue lotus heart was given to elder martial sister Liu. I know that it was protector Shu who dug up my senior martial brother’s nascent soul, but now I am in the Xuanyuan sect being taken care of by sister Shu, our relationship might not be close but we get along well. I left my sect after marriage between my senior martial brother and sister Liu and traveled the world with brother Zhong, master Qingxue and Xiu Huai. In the Purple Spirit Pavilion in Taiyin Mountain, it’s true that I got lock core herb but it was not for my senior brother but for the sect master.
“After I barely returned to the sect, elder martial brother asked me to assassinate Protector Qiu and I didn’t agree.”
The more she said, the more bizarre her eyes became.
“What happened?” Baili Qingmiao scratched her hair into a mess and puzzled said: “I was separated from my senior brother when he got married, nothing was done so far so why do I always have the feeling that he has wronged me and I should give up on this relationship? If he failed me, he should also fail sister Liu, right?”
Yin Hanjiang was familiar with this feeling. Up to now, when he saw Baili Qingmiao he could not calm down his killing intent, feeling that she had failed Wen Renhe’s deep love.
When he saw Baili Qingmiao’s confused look, Yin Hanjiang slowly pulled her sleeve and tore out a piece of fabric to wipe the non-existent dust from his sheath of alkaid triangular bayonet.
Whenever he wanted to kill Baili Qingmiao, Yin Hanjiang would restrain himself in this way.
Baili Qingmiao, who had half of her sleeve torn off, had her thoughts disrupted. She looked at her tattered robe a little speechlessly, not understanding Yin Hanjiang’s habit of using her as a rag.
She coughed twice and looked at altar master Shitan who was looking eagerly at her, and said with some embarrassment: “Altar master Shitan I can’t release sickness Qi, so I still need to bother you to do it yourself. Don’t worry, I won’t seek death anymore. Thank you for taking care of me.”
“Cough, cough, I didn’t take care of you, you snatched it yourself.” Altar master Shitan coughed vainly twice and stepped forward to put his palm against Baili Qingmiao’s undershirt, drawing back the sickness Qi he had cultivated for years.
After altar master Shitan completely drew back his sickness Qi, he suddenly found that his cultivation had become stronger. It was reasonable to say that for him sickness Qi was just like genuine Qi so it consumed a lot of it to transmit it. Altar master Shitan was prepared for the weakening of his strength, but unexpectedly his sickness Qi became stronger.
Baili Qingmiao after this period of recuperation, had all her injuries basically healed so as long as she found the right materials to re-refine her soul-bound magic weapon, she would be okay. Being weak and motionless was also due to the influence of sickness Qi so after returning sickness Qi to altar master Shitan, she was a lot more energetic and her thoughts also became clearer.
She said to Yin Hanjiang: “I can go back to Shangqing sect with you and lure out my older brother. Not only that, master Qingxue …… Protector Qiu has given me the weapon to control elder martial sister Liu’s soul oath. I can order elder martial sister Liu to do things, but I have one condition. “
“No negotiation.” Yin Hanjiang said, his intuition telling him that it was impossible for him to agree.
However, Baili Qingmiao was persistent, when the Shangqing Sect asked her to frame Qiu Congxue she did not agree, so now that Yin Hanjiang wanted her help to do things to Shangqing sect, she also wouldn’t agree.
Even if Yan Hanjiang did not agree, she still had to say it: “Your ultimate goal is the blood demon ancestor. I heard from my brother Zhong that this blood demon ancestor killed 17 masters of the righteous path. After he breaks free, he will probably endanger the whole cultivation world. I, as the cultivator from the righteous path, must not let such a demon endanger the Cultivation World, or even other realms. Putting aside my personal feelings, even if He Wenchao did not know about it and was used by the blood demon ancestor, he is still to blame and cannot be considered innocent.”
Her words were reasonable and justified, which impressed Yin Hanjiang and made him listen patiently.
“So I’m willing to go to the Shangqing sect to lure out He Wenchao, along with the blood demon ancestor. But He Wenchao must be handed over to the Shangqing sect or even other five major sects for public trial, we can’t just do it casually.” Baili Qingmiao said seriously.
Even without considering Baili Qingmiao, how could Yin Hanjiang let go of He Wenchao? But Baili Qingmiao’s idea matched his, Yin Hanjiang wanted justice for his lord and wanted to show these people from the righteous path how blind they were, aiding the evil-doer and trying to kill his lord!
However, even after making this matter public, Yin Hanjiang was not going to spare the cultivators who participated in the siege that day as well as He Wenchao. He smiled coldly toward Baili Qingmiao not intending to tell her his thoughts and just nodded: “A public trial is fine.”
“Patriarch Yin is righteous, Baili will follow the patriarch.” Baili Qingmiao said innocently, clasping her fist.
With her cooperation, Yin Hanjiang and Baili Qingmiao decided to set off immediately. The clothes she was wearing were already torn and tattered, so she asked Yin Hanjiang to go out and wait while she changed into a robe that hasn’t been used as a rag for alkaid triangular bayonet yet.
As soon as she changed into a yellow light robe worn by the disciples of the Shangqing sect, Baili Qingmiao saw a person appear in front of her. It was no other than Wen Renhe.
“Senior Wen Renhe.” She clasped her fist and said.
Wen Renhe was very surprised to see Baili Qingmiao’s decision through 《Abusive Love Affair》and had actually made a plan that if Baili Qingmiao refused to agree to Yin Hanjiang request he would possess Baili Qingmiao and return to Shangqing sect with the help of her body to lure out He Wenchao. But it was very likely to be noticed by the blood demonic ancestor, so it was not the best choice. Now that Baili Qingmiao agreed to cooperate, Wen Renhe was relieved but at the same time a little puzzled.
“You are actually willing to assist the Xuanyuan sect in scheming against He Wenchao. This venerable thought that it would be impossible for Baili Qingmiao to get rid of He Wenchao for the rest of her life.” Wen Renhe said.
Baili Qingmiao blushed slightly, but she spoke from the bottom of her heart in front of her “predecessor,” who was a little cold, but had always taken good care of her: “I was also very strange. At the age of 18, I thought I could live and die for my senior material brother; after the massive demonic war, I felt heartache when I saw my senior martial brother and wanted to give him my nascent soul. When my brother got married, I was in so much pain that if it wasn’t for the help of brother Zhong I would have run back to the Shangqing sect to see him secretly. If he and sister Liu were unhappy I might have gone against my old principles and willingly committed myself to my brother, being someone I would not even spit on.”
Wen Renhe felt that her analysis was logical, the Baili Qingmiao recorded in the book would have been with He Wenchao if it hadn’t been for Purple Spirit Pavilion Master’s repeated obstruction and become one of He Wenchao harem.
She had been entangled with He Wenchao many times and even with her divine consciousness, she was not able to get rid of this abusive love.
But now, everything was different. During their thirty years of travel, Zhong Liqian had taught Baili Qingmiao well, Qiu Congxue …… probably also played a small role.
Baili Qingmiao quietly thought about it before finally saying: “I just carefully thought back to the action of my elder martial brother before he became married. It’s probably because since childhood, I have loved my elder martial brother and given him more than 20 years of my youth and affection that it’s hard for me to give him up. But now, I am almost seventy years old. In the mortal world, you already know your fate and you are less emotional and more rational at this age. Some things, some people, the more you invest, the more they want to get something in return. But if they don’t get anything in return, they will hold on. But once you put them down early, you will find that all kinds of things back then were only obsessions.
“Patriarch Yin’s words are not all right, but one sentence was right. I thought carefully about my entanglement with my elder martial brother and suddenly realized that I perhaps did not love him that much, but clung to the feeling of a person being moved by my love.”
“Senior Wen Renhe don’t laugh at this junior, junior…. can’t even remember why she wanted to commit suicide for a whole year.”
Baili Qingmiao’s expression was indifferent, she was really awakened by Yin Hanjiang’s scolding.
Wen Renhe smiled faintly, thinking of the words he saw in the《Abusive Love Affair》just now, and could not help saying somewhat smugly: “About the matter of your love toward He Wenchao, I have been asking all over the place, from the Xuanyuan sect to Zhong Liqian to Zhong Lifei and couldn’t even get the answer from memories of Yao Jiaping. But I didn’t expect that the person who would understand love would be right next to me.”
He worked hard, even thinking of methods such as tracking spell and compulsion Gu, but still failed to wake up Baili Qingmiao. But on the contrary, Yin Hanjiang saw it much more thoroughly than Wen Renhe.
Yin Hanjiang loved a person without asking for anything in return and didn’t need to hear Wen Renhe’s response as long as he was alive. Even if Wen Renhe loved Baili Qingmiao in the book, he could still protect Baili Qingmiao and endure the heartache for the sake of his lord.
It was also because he had such an experience that Yin Hanjiang could see through the crux of Baili Qingmiao’s issue at a glance, but he just couldn’t keep calm.
“Baili Qingmiao,” Wen Renhe took out the divine blood and placed it in front of her: “The karma I owed you back then, I will pay it back this time. This object is from your body as long as you don’t get too close to the godhood, you will not be affected by your feelings. From now on, you and I have no more cause and effect.”
Baili Qingmiao took the divine blood, and for a moment, she only felt her body filled with power as the divine blood transformed into a red ribbon, becoming her new soul bound magic weapon. She sat cross legged and ran genuine Qi to refine her magic weapon and Wen Renhe could clearly see that she was practicing none other than the merciless path!
Wen Renhe entered the Dao because of the war caused by the innate gods and gained the power to avenge his family. Yin Hanjiang was saved by Wen Renhe who was obsessed with his thoughts, and deeply loved his lord. Baili Qingmiao was haunted by her love and was awakened by Yin Hanjiang’s words, from which she became completely free from her love and entered the new path.
The so-called cause and effect seemed to have been decided long ago in the underworld.
