Chapter 14 – Individual Roles
“Do you know how to treat mental disorders, Mo Bai?” asked Gu Qingyu.
Mo Bai shook his head and could not help but reveal a faint smile.
“At least, I know…” Gu Qingyu sighed. She realized that their team didn’t lack anything! Assassination? Jia Qizhe. Injury? Mo Bai. Consolation or persuasion? Qi Yichen. Shopping? Xiao Qi. [Xiao Qi, “Hey! Why is my specialty, ‘haggling’?!”]; As for herself… evaluating and studying people??
Gu Qingyu started to feel that she actually… was quite useful after all!
Once she came to this conclusion, she happily strutted along the way.
Everyone just stared at her oddly.
Roughly an hour later…
“Huuuu~~!” Gu Qingyu let out a lengthy breath, “We’re finally here!”
She gazed towards a small house. The house was surrounded by a beautiful bamboo grove which acted as protection, as well as a babbling and burbling river.
A classic paradise!
“It’s so beautiful here!” Gu Qingyu couldn’t help but exclaim.
“If Qingyu wishes, you could stay here forever.” said Qi Yichen suddenly.
“Che~ As if! This is your home, not mine.” She waved her hands dismissively, “Hurry up and go report to your master!”
“No need.” A rather young voice came through. A figure landed in front of them, “I’m here.”
Gu Qingyu gaped at him, “Master? Hey! Why the f**k is he completely different from my imagination!!”
The man before her was dressed in black and had a completely different feel from Qi Yichen; His eyebrows were slightly upturned, and seemed to have quite the vigor. He looked to be about Qi Yichen’s age, and his hair was put up with a black hairband—
Qi Yichen, are you sure he’s suffering from a mental disorder?
“You… are Qi Yichen’s master?” Gu Qingyu couldn’t keep it in anymore.
The others just acted as if nothing was out of the ordinary.
“I am! As expected, Xiao Chen brought you here~ Come on in and rest please~” said the man as he just went in alone by himself.
“…”, Gu Qingyu and the gang followed suit quietly.
“It’s rather late tonight. Since we have many rooms here, please go and rest in your individual chambers. Qingyu, come with me.” That “Master” casually called out her name “Qingyu” very naturally.
“Ok…” Gu Qingyu curled her lips and followed him.
Mo Bai glanced at Gu Qingyu with a worried look, but he didn’t say anything. When no one paid attention, his hand, let out a faint green glow.
She followed the black robed man, endlessly twisting and turning. This house looked small on the surface, but the terrain was quite complex…
At last, they stopped at a place that seemed to be a secret chamber.
He pushed open the door and went in, Gu Qingyu followed closely behind.
Right when she entered, the door slowly closed by itself.
A candle lit up on the table.
The black robed man smiled, “How are you, Young Miss from another world.”
“You…” She stared at the person in front of her in astonishment, “He knows about my identity? Does that mean he also knew… the cause of my death, and my purpose for being here?”
“This old man know what you’re thinking. First, calm down and settle your distraught thoughts…” The black robed man pretended to stroke his chin, when in actual fact, he didn’t even have any beard.
Old man? How old is he even?
“That…” She asked in a low voice, “May I ask how old you are?”
The smile on his face froze, the black robed man looked as if he suddenly received a heavy blow.
Age?? What she wanted to know the most, was not the reason for her to be here, but his age??
“Cough, cough…” The black robed man weakly coughed a couple of times, “This old man is past fifty.”
Gu Qingyu stared suspiciously at him, “I don’t think so?”
“No wonder you’re the chosen one of the Bloodlife Jade… you’re… quite… unique…” The black robed man coughed again and looked extremely weak, “I don’t have much longer…you, must go and do one thing for me.” As he said, a bright red light flashed in his palm, and a red colored rock appeared.
