Her bright eyes were charming and lovely as they studied him closely.
Chu Li’s five senses were still active, so he could feel her sweet breath and her jade-smooth skin.
She had been scrutinizing Chu Li with a thoughtful look on her face as she tried in vain to pinpoint that sense of peculiarity she had felt.
She was a stubborn person, so her failure to identify the source of her uncertainty sparked her determination to find it. This drove her to continue examining Chu Li. It was only when Chu Li decided to avert his attention and shut off his Omniscient Mirror that the odd feeling vanished entirely.
Then, Miss Ruolan sensed someone spying on them, so she picked Chu Li up by his waistband the way one would carry a stick and stepped out of the house before disappearing into the night sky.
Chu Li remained slightly conscious to observe his surroundings.
Miss Ruolan had brought him out of Luo State City and was gliding gracefully as though she was moving with the wind. When dawn came the next day, they had arrived at a place called Ben State City.
Ben State City was more prosperous than Luo State City. Its city walls were two meters higher than Luo State City and its main road was a meter wider. Although he could not check the size of this city himself, he reckoned that it was somewhat bigger than Luo State City.
As the sun rose at dawn, Ben State City seemed to have just awoken from its slumber. The brisk bustle of the place and the morning air felt pleasant and refreshing.
She carried Chu Li and arrived in front of a majestic-looking mansion.
The entrance door was painted in red and was covered with rows of brass tacks that shone like numerous watchful yellow eyes under the dawning sun, giving off a forbidding air of wealth.
The stone lions on either side of the door seemed very lifelike and felt rather powerful and overbearing.
Nonetheless, these stone lions could not hide the imposing presence of the two white-clad young men by the door.
These were two good-looking young men with tall and straight figures. Their gazes were sharp and spirited while their temples were high. At such a young age, they were already Grandmasters.
Chu Li sighed inwardly. How extravagant and confident they were to have Grandmasters as their gatekeepers!
When they saw Miss Ruolan approaching the door, they stepped forward to block her path and locked her in place with their stern presence. Their hands were fastened on the hilts of their long blades, which arched like a full moon.
Miss Ruolan put Chu Li down and took out a white jade tag, which was engraved with a sun that shone with brilliance on one side of it and a flame on the other side. The flame seemed like a continuously burning fire that could never be extinguished.
As she showed the white jade tag to the two young men, they stepped back and gave a fist salute.
“Junior Sister Ruolan, which one is this?” The round-faced young man’s stern expression faded immediately and was replaced by a grin. “Is he dead?”
Miss Ruolan coldly cast him a sidelong glance. “Senior Brother Zhu, don’t ask what you shouldn’t ask!”
The other square-faced young man laughed and said, “Junior Sister Ruolan has come across a good talent?”
Miss Ruolan’s eyes gleamed as she shot a glance at him. “Senior Brother Zou, there’s nothing you need to know about this.”
“Hehe, we’re just bored. There’s no harm in asking about this anyway, right?” the round-faced young man asked with a chuckle. “Was it because of this guy that Junior Sister Ruolan has gone out this time?”
Miss Ruolan replied, “Senior Brother Zhu, focus on your cultivation if you’re bored. Don’t think that everything will be fine just because you’ve achieved the Grandmaster’s Boundary. If you show a lack of advancement, the Saint won’t excuse you for it!”
The round-faced young man’s expression changed at once as he quickly said, “Indeed, indeed. Thank you, Miss Ruolan!”
Chu Li read his mind and detected a sense of awe and admiration in him.
Ruolan picked Chu Li up and walked in while the two men hurriedly opened the side gate for her. Upon entering, there was a screen wall across the gate with a drawing of a Spirit Crane and green pines.
Chu Li smiled to himself. While this Spirit Crane’s profile seemed similar to its real-life counterpart, its aura felt extremely different as if he was comparing a white crane to a pheasant.
Miss Ruolan made her way deeper into the residence with him and walked down a small path surrounded by flowers before arriving at the main hall.
Chu Li detected four Grandmasters hidden in the flowering shrubs. They were all middle-aged men who had been able to hide their presence so well that they were almost unnoticeable. Their cultivation should be at a deeply profound level for them to be able to achieve such a boundary.
In front of the main hall stood two more young Grandmasters. As they saw Miss Ruolan walking over, they took a step forward in an imposing manner.
“Bright moon of the southern sky!” These words which Miss Ruolan had uttered was the secret password to gain entrance.
Without saying the password, she would have been stopped from entering even if they recognized her.
The two young martial arts masters gave a fist salute and smiled. “Junior Sister Ruolan wishes to see the Saint?”
“Is the Saint here?”
“The Saint is cultivating in the backyard.”
“I’ll go there then.”
“This person is…?”
“I’m bringing him to see the Saint,” Miss Ruolan replied.
The two men nodded and watched her as she turned around and went to another Moon Gate.
Miss Ruolan carried Chu Li and went through three courtyards before finally arriving at the backyard.
The backyard was an ocean of flowers and was divided into two parts. One part was the flower ocean while the other was a small lake.
At the center of the flower ocean was a round piece of land where a woman dressed in white stood motionlessly. Her face was covered by a white veil and could not be clearly seen. Only her eyes remained unveiled and were tightly shut.
Her white tunic fluttered in a passing breeze and made her graceful figure faintly discernible.
The flowers also swayed in the breeze and seemed as though they were bowing to her.
Chu Li noticed four Grandmasters in this backyard. They were all elderly men with white hair who appeared as if they had become one with their surroundings. If he had not been observing through the Omniscient Mirror, he would not have managed to detect their presence.
However, under the observation of Chu Li’s Omniscient Mirror, that graceful woman in white had vanished completely from his view.
It was only when he opened his eyes slightly that he could see the woman in white.
His Omniscient Mirror had actually lost its effects and had failed to detect the woman in white!
When he had previously observed Fang Qingyang, the man had been like a blazing sun shining so brightly that it had almost caused the Omniscient Mirror to shatter. Thus, observing him had been a strenuous task.
On the contrary, this woman in white before him had turned into a ray of light that blended with the light around her. This made it impossible for the Omniscient Mirror to observe her, so he could only use his own eyes to see her. It was truly a strange phenomenon.
He felt a sudden urge to escape by using his God’s Limbs to disappear immediately.
This woman in white was too dangerous!
Ruolan lithely walked over to the woman in white.
When she was ten meters away, Ruolan tossed Chu Li aside and greeted the woman with a curtsy. “Greetings, my Saint.”
The woman in white slowly opened her eyes. Her beautiful, almond-shaped eyes were filled with power as she glanced at Ruolan and said, “He has been recommended to join the Church? He’s not very young anymore, right?”
She had a pleasant and attractive voice and was talking at a speed that was neither too fast nor too slow. It felt rather pleasing to hear her speak.
“Eighteen years old,” Miss Ruolan informed politely. “He’s originally a Chivalry Association disciple from Peace Town. During a brawl between Chivalry Association and Ferric Blood Association, he was pushed off a cliff and was rescued by an old monk who then passed on his Sentient Menace to him before achieving a rainbow body.”
“This old monk who had attained a rainbow body should be from the Titanium Temple, right?”
“Yes,” Miss Ruolan replied. “I’ve used the Memory Tracing Skill to verify his claims. After having been rescued, he ate a red fruit, and his Sentient Menace cultivation suddenly advanced into its sixth level.”
The woman in white nodded. “He’s very lucky indeed.”
Miss Ruolan said, “Although he has cultivated the Sentient Menace, the martial art isn’t from the Tempest Temple. If he cultivates our Great Light Scripture in the future and learns to use them hand-in-hand, his power will certainly be incredible!”
“It’s worth a try.” The woman in white nodded again.
Her thoughtful eyes swept over Chu Li, who lay motionless on the ground. “How long has he been dead?”
“He died last night,” Miss Ruolan replied. “After giving him the Light Pill, I took the opportunity to perform the Memory Tracing Skill on him.”
