As a result, he had barely gone far when he saw a sight that made him so angry he tore the perpetrators to pieces.

“Run!” the old man shouted with his last breath, and then his ordinary and tragic life ended.

After disposing of that evil cultivation trash, Gu Feng no longer could recall what mood he’d been in when he’d buried the old man’s emaciated body.

He only recalled that from that day forward, he felt a deep conviction that it was necessary to return the continent to its original peaceful and beautiful state. 

Here, the memory ended, but it was plenty.
Those events had not occurred yet in this life, and there was still the chance to avert such a crisis.

Gu Feng had just closed his eyes, but when he reopened them, his entire aura had transformed.
It was as though an ancient and dusty sword had finally been unsheathed to reveal its sharp edged glory.


“Gege?” Su Mujin was hesitant.

“Xiao Jin, how long have we been in these spiritual ruins?” Gu Feng returned to his senses. 

Su Mujin pondered before answering, “Roughly four months.”

That meant there was exactly one year and eight months before the Hundred Flowers Sect held the festival.
Gu Feng thought a bit and muttered to himself, “Even though this is Yan Jun’s independent realm, the boundary is not impenetrable.
If our cultivation can break through to nascent soul, and invoke the tribulation thunder, then when the Celestial Lightning strikes down, it’ll open a gap that we can escape through.”

“Gege, that’s exactly what I was thinking, too.
It should be possible.” Su Mujin nodded his head in agreement.

“Can you do it within a year and a half?” 

Su Mujin was currently only in the middle stage of golden core, and it would be difficult to achieve nascent soul in just eighteen months.

“If Gege desires it, I can do it.”

“Okay, I’ll give you a reward if you can.” He reckoned that the Fengming Qin would perfectly suit Su Mujin.

“Oh right, take out the Shengmai Pill and use it.” Gu Feng just then recalled that Su Mujin had acquired that treasure.
After taking the pill, Su Mujin’s circulation would increase, and it would elevate his cultivation ability. 

“Okay.” Su Mujin wasted no words, taking out the pill and swallowing it.

So painful! That was Su Mujin’s immediate thought.
The intensity of this pain was a hundred fold greater than when he had previously taken the pill for washing his spiritual roots.

Heart-rendingly painful!

Bone-piercingly painful! 

Unspeakably painful!

His entire body felt as though it had been dissected and rearranged.
The torment was great enough to destroy a person’s will.
Su Mujin’s face turned white from the agony, cold sweat dripped from his forehead, and blood seeped through his skin.
But he refused to show his suffering in his facial expression, because he didn’t want his gege to once again .
worry about him.

Gu Feng was already concerned when he saw Su Mujin’s skin begin to bleed.
He had never obtained the Shengmai pill in his previous life, and hadn’t expected it to be so painful.
Although he knew that Su Mujin was okay, he still felt overwhelmingly distressed.

Su Mujin’s consciousness grew hazy.
His fingers twitched and he began to scratch at and rend his own flesh as it continually repaired itself.
It was both painful and itchy! 

“Don’t scratch! If you leave scars, I’ll .
no longer like you!!” Gu Feng stepped forward and wrapped Su Mujin in his embrace.
Both his hands gripped his companion’s to keep him from scratching at himself any longer.

His companion was in intense agony, something Gu Feng felt he never should have to experience.
Gu Feng was anxious to do something to fix it..


“Itchy? Let me help you.” Gu Feng softly lapped at Su Mujin’s face, licking away the drops of blood and beads of sweat.
He showed no disgust, only caring about whether or not Su Mujin’s discomfort was relieved.

Su Mujin was horrified.
He must be hallucinating from the pain.
Not only did Gege say he liked him, he also rubbed his lips all over his face. 

After a long while, Su Mujin finally calmed down.
Gu Feng let out a quiet sigh.
He had been terrified that Su Mujin might not be able to hold out.
After casting a cleaning art on both of them, Gu Feng began to ponder how the two of them should interact after this.
During all the excitement, he had an unstoppable urge, and in a moment of carelessness .
he had confessed his feelings.

Three days passed before Su Mujin awoke.
As he came to consciousness, he noticed that his body felt relaxed and healthy.
His whole being was imbued with inexhaustible strength, and he discovered his cultivation had raised to the summit of the late stage of golden core.
He was now at the same level as Gege.

Oh right, Gege? Su Mujin blushed. Was what happened that day real or his hallucination?

“Awake?” Without giving Su Mujin the time to ponder over the incident, Gu Feng called out to him, appearing as cool as a cucumber, if you overlooked the fact that his trembling sleeve betrayed his true emotions. 

“Um, Gege, did anything unusual happen when I took the Shengmai pill?” Seeing Gu Feng look so  unperturbed, Su Mujin began to think it really had been just a hallucination, but he wanted to make sure.

Gu Feng raised an eyebrow. So .
did he forget? Well that works, too.
All that I did and all that I said that day was for the purpose of easing his suffering.

He had already decided.
He was definitely interested in his companion, but now was not the time.
Such a careless and casual confession was disrespectful to the other party.
He wanted to give him something better.

“Nope, nothing.
Let’s get started cultivating.” Gu Feng breezily replied, while also thinking about how best to confess his feelings. 

In the blink of an eye, a year and a half passed by.

“Okay, is there anyone else who still wants to sign up? If not, I’ll go turn in the list.” Xu Li was exhausted.
The Hundred Flowers Festival that occurred only once every fifty years was about to commence.
She had been registering entrants for days on end, but fortunately she was just about done.

“Wait a moment!” A pleasant male voice sounded in the distance.

Note from the Translator:
