Chapter 217: God Habitat Grass
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Following Duanmu Xingling, Zhang Ruochen arrived at the gate of Qingxuan Pavilion.
Raising his head and looking upward, Zhang Ruochen was astonished. He smiled and asked, "You know the shopkeeper here, senior sister apprentice Duanmu?" "
"Of course...You know him as well?" Duanmu Xingling was a bit surprised. She opened her eyes wide and round, with astonishment.
Zhang Ruochen naturally felt the change in her facial expression and made a detailed inquiry, "Are you surprised?"
"No!" She shook her head and said, "The real host of Qingxuan Pavilion is my aunt. I'm just curious, if you know the shopkeeper here, how come my aunt has never mentioned you before?"
"Your aunt is the charming host" Thinking of the gorgeous host, he looked at Duanmu Xingling again and felt even more incredible.
She forced a smile to hide her anxiety. She said, "You already know my aunt. That's good!"
Mo Hanlin, the shopkeeper of Qingxuan Pavilion, saw Duanmu Xingling and a young man in a metal mask come in. He was a little surprised by the intimate interaction between them but adjusted his composure quickly. He cupped his hands and bowed to them, "I sincerely greet you, Ms. Duanmu."
"Thank you, Mo." Duanmu Xingling smiled.
Mo Hanlin looked at Zhang Ruochen and asked puzzledly, "Who is he, Ms. Duanmu?"
Duanmu Xingling answered, "Chen Ruo, the secret disciple of the Hall Master of the Silver Gowned Elder Hall in the School of the Martial Market. He has become a celebrity in all commanderies. And also, he is my boyfriend."
Even though Mo Hanlin was well-cultivated, he was largely surprised hearing these words. With his heart almost jumping out, he groaned inwardly, "What is she doing, my young child?"
Zhang Ruochen glanced at Mo Hanlin. He felt like at least six pairs of eyes were staring at him.
It was quite unusual for them to all stare at him with vigilance, sharpness and hostility.
"Things are not that simple in Qing Xuan Pavilion. There may hide secrets." Zhang Ruochen thought in his mind. But he didn't ask instantly. Instead, he wore a calm expression.
Duanmu Xingling glanced at Zhang Ruochen, and said in a shy voice, "Feel free to tell Mo if you want to buy any spiritual doses. If you cannot find it here, you won't find it anywhere."
Zhang Ruochen asked, "Have you ever heard of God Habitat Grass?"
Mo Hanlin frowned and shook his head, "I have run Qingxuan Pavilion for decades and seen over a thousand types of medicines and pills. I've also read many medicinal books. But I've never heard of God Habitat Grass. I'm sorry to disappoint you, Mr. Chen."
Zhang Ruochen had already prepared for this mentally. He hadn't brought much hope. So he nodded his head slightly and smiled, "I was just curious. Since there is no God Habitat Grass, let's go!"
Duanmu Xingling was quite clear that it must be something important for Zhang Ruochen to come here to buy the God Habitat Grass. It was nonsense to "just be curious".
Zhang Ruochen was sent out of Qingxuan Pavilion. Duanmu Xingling asked him, "Why are you looking for the God Habitat Grass?"
Zhang Ruochen answered, "Just a kind of dispensable medicine. It doesn't matter if I cannot find it."
"Then what are you going to do? The situation in Yunwu City is quite complicated now. All parties have come here. Even though all the troops of Yunwu Commandery have been sent out, I'm afraid the situation cannot be stabilized. Moreover, you're a hit on the Board of Bounty Hunter. Many people want to kill you now. Once you pick up your identity as Zhang Ruochen, it will be dangerous even if you stay in the palace." Duanmu Xingling said.
Zhang Ruochen smiled and said, "That's why I'm going to find the God Habitat Grass and break through my realm. Only in this way can I protect myself. You should watch out as well, senior sister. You are a disciple of the School of the Martial Market. Evil Warriors from the Black Market and Moon Worship Demonic Sect will deal with you as well."
Duanmu Xingling said, "I live in my aunt's home. Ordinary Evil Warriors could never break in. So I'm safe. Do you want to live in my aunt's home as well?"
"Well...forget it! I'm now Chen Ruo, not Zhang Ruochen on the Board of Bounty Hunter. Not many enemies want to kill me now." Thinking of the fascinating host, Zhang Ruochen felt a bit uncomfortable.
If he lived in the host's home, wouldn't he have to take precautions against her?
Duanmu Xingling saw the expression on Zhang Ruochen's face. She guessed some of his thoughts and stopped embarrassing him. She said, "If you come into dangerous conditions, you can always come to my aunts for help. You know that my aunt is also a figure in Yunwu City."
Zhang Ruochen nodded with smile. Looking at the horizontal inscribed board hung on Qingxuan Pavilion one last time, he immersed himself in thought and then left the Martial Market.
Seeing that Zhang Ruochen had walked away from the Martial Market, Duanmu Xingling left Qingxuan Pavilion as well. She hurried to Qin Ya's mansion.
"When did you meet Zhang Ruochen? Why did you never mention him before?" Duanmu Xingling sat in front of Qin Ya, with an expression of anger.
Qin Ya gave a charming smile, her eyes as bright as clear water. She said, "Is he the Ninth Prince? Two years ago, I met him several times and was quite impressed by him. It is widely acknowledged that in Yunwu Commandery, the Seventh Prince, Zhang Tiangui, was the first genius. Nobody could beat him. But from my perspective, the talent of the Ninth Prince, Zhang Ruochen, is comparable to that of Zhang Tiangui. Why do you mention him so abruptly?"
"I've just met him!" Duanming Xingling replied.
Hearing these words, Qin Ya stopped serving tea for Duanmu Xingling and said, "It was reported that you went to Qingxuan Pavilion with Chen Ruo and called yourself his girlfriend. Is Chen Ruo actually Zhang Ruochen?"
Duanmu Xingling didn't lie but nodded her head.
Qin Ya became serious and said, "As your aunt, I must remind you, Xingling, that every three years an outstanding girl in Kunlun's Field will be chosen by the Sect to be cultivated into the Saintness. This girl will not only obtain great power and rights, but also rich resources to practice. But there are also restraints for the Saintness."
"Once you become the Saintness, you can only marry the Saint and serve him for your whole lifetime. This is your destiny."
"You can play tricks as you did just now, because your mission at present is to spy in the School of the Martial Market. Few people know your identity. And here in the thirty-six commanderies of the Omen Ridge, the disciples are all my followers. They dare not spread your real identity."
"But if you make the situation troublesome in the future, the Dark Messengers will report it to the Altar. Then you and Zhang Ruochen will both be in great danger."
Putting her head in her hands, Duanmu Xingling said, "As the Saintness, I must marry the hundred-year-old man? Then can I give up being the Saintness?"
Qin Ya shook her head and said, "Once you're chosen to be the Saintness, you cannot choose your destiny on your own. Although every three years there is a Saintness chosen by the Sect, once she gets married, she won't be the Saintness anymore. That's why there are only twelve Saintnesses in the entire Sect. Each Saintness is in a very important position in the Sect, as they represent the younger generation of the Sect. Even the Chiefs of the commanderies should obey her order."
"If you want to control your own destiny, you must learn from the superior Saintness, Ling Feiyu, who practiced to the realm of Saint by herself."
"If you are more advantageous than the Saints, the Sect Master naturally won't force you to marry them."
Duanmu Xingling's eyes sparked and she asked, "Really?"
Qin Ya answered, "It's too early to celebrate. If you are not gifted enough, you will have to marry the Saint before you practice to the realm of the Saint. The Moon Worship Demonic Sect has been established for so many years, how many of the Saintnesses do you know that can choose their own destinies?"
Duanmu Xingling promised Qin Ya, "Don't worry. I will try my best to practice. Although the chance is slim, I'll strive to become a Saint."
Qin Ya nodded her head and smiled with her eyes squinting, "You come to me only to talk about this?"
"Indeed, there is one more thing."
Duanmu Xingling asked, "Have you ever heard of God Habitat Grass?"
"God Habitat Grass!"
Qin Ya stood up suddenly. She thought for a while and asked, "Why do you ask about it?"
"You have heard about it!" Duanmu Xingling couldn't help but become cheerful, with excitement showing on her delicate face.
Qin Ya nodded her head and said, "In the Eastern Region, there is a superior-level heritage of the middle age, the God Habitat Valley. In Kunlun's Field, only in the God Habitat valley can one find the God Habitat Grass."
"It is said that the God Habitat Grass is a kind of fatal poisonous grass. The poison extracted from God Habitat Grass can even poison a Half-Saint to death."
"Xingling, tell me the truth. Why are you looking for God Habitat Grass?"
Duanmu Xingling was much delighted and said, "Stop asking me! I just want to know whether I can get the God Habitat Grass by using the power of the Sect."
"Sure," Qin Ya answered.
Duanmu Xingling asked, "How soon can it be sent to Yunwu Commandery?"
Qin Ya frowned slightly. She wrinkled her eyebrows and said, "If you dispatch someone to pick God Habitat Grass in the God Habitat Valley, it will take at least two months to fetch the Grass. But on the other hand, it is also a kind of fatal poison used to deal with the warriors of Martial Arts. Yunwu Commandery is an inferior commandery where God Habitat Grass cannot be found. However, Qianshui Commandery is a superior commandery that may have some stored."
"You just need to make a secret order to the Chief of Qianshui Commandery using your identity as a Saintness. People there will naturally look for the God Habitat Grass at the fastest speed. Qianshui Commandery is near Yunwu Commandery. If they are fast enough, there will be a reply within three days."
"I will go to make the order." Duanmu Xingling moved her body quickly. She turned into a shadow, flew over the pavilion and the surface of water, leaving only her lovely laughter in the air.
"Things are not going well." Qin Ya stood up with a charming figure. She stared at the way in which Duanmu Xingling left with a worried look.
