Chapter 60: Black Tortoise?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Eh? There’s actually a snake on the turtle’s back? Could this be the legendary Xuanwu? Xuanwu was a mythical creature in the Chinese constellation, also known as the Black Tortoise.
However, upon closer inspection, this little black snake looked very familiar. It seemed to be the one that she lost?
Dong Xi was currently thinking, could it be that the little black snake did not leave on its own, but that she had left the little black snake at home when she went out?
But that was not right either. The little black snake was usually stuck to her body and could not be removed no matter what.
It seemed that he had come down on his own.
Dong Xi thought for a while and immediately reached out to take the little black snake from the turtle’s back. She smiled and guessed, “I guess you’re afraid of seeing my Master?”
The little black snake did not make a sound, nor did it move. It just lay on her hand and did not pay any attention to her.
Dong Xi was not going to let this go. She immediately reached out to pick up the little turtle and walked out. “Since that’s the case, I’ll take you to find Master.”
As soon as he finished speaking, she felt the little black snake that was wrapped around her hand suddenly disappear.
She stopped in her tracks and hurriedly looked around. She saw the little black snake on the bed.
Dong Xi was furious. As expected, people with low cultivation have no human rights. A little snake dares to play tricks on me!
Su Cheng did not know what human rights were. He only knew that this human girl’s spiritual energy could heal his injuries.
There was poison in his body, and ordinary healing spells were useless. He did not know what kind of spirit body she had, but her spiritual energy had such a special effect.
He now realized that this human girl was a ruthless person. She did not sleep or rest, and was even more hardworking than he was back then.
Just this point alone made him admire her.
In the future, when this human girl grew up, she would definitely be a big shot.
Dong Xi frowned as she pounced at the little black snake, but in the end, she pounced on nothing.
After a few times, she recognized the reality. She could not catch this little black snake at all, or rather, this little black snake was not as harmless as it looked.
In the end, Dong Xi could only give up. She picked up the White Jade Sword and began to practice the basic sword moves in the courtyard.
She did not return to the training room until sunset. She had stayed at the second level of Qi Refinement for a long time. Her Du Meridian was just a little bit away from completing the tempering. In a few days, she would be able to break through to the third level of Qi Refinement.
She closed her eyes and immersed herself in cultivation. She felt the changes in her body and was very pleased.
The spirit gathering array was indeed useful. Compared to when she was in the outer sect, her cultivation speed had at least doubled.
While she was cultivating, she suddenly felt that the spiritual energy seemed to have become less and less. She opened her eyes in a daze and saw a slender figure lying on her bed.
The man’s upper body was bare, and his long hair was spread over his body. His lower body was a thick black snake tail, and the scales on the snake tail gave off a sharp and cold light.
Dong Xi’s consciousness instantly became highly focused, and she stood up in a panic.
“Litte… snake…” She pointed at Su Cheng, her fingers trembling.
Su Cheng opened his eyes and looked at Dong Xi with a sharp gaze. Dong Xi felt a chill on her back, as if she was being watched as prey.
There was nothing wrong with this feeling. After all, she was indeed prey.
After taking a few steps back, she heard the man’s cold voice ring out in the dark night, “Turn around.”
Dong Xi obeyed instinctively and turned around obediently. Suddenly, she remembered that this was not her cave abode, and her Master was on the neighboring mountain peak. Why would she be threatened by a snake?
She turned around and saw that the man had put on a robe. The large robe covered the snake’s tail.
He was lying lazily on the bed as if he had no bones. His snake tail was huge, and a small section of it was even coiled into a circle.
With a slight movement, his hair fell from his shoulders, revealing his strong chest.
This lively scene made Dong Xi swallow her saliva.
Quietly swallowing her saliva, stammered, “Y-you… are… are the little black snake?”
“That’s right,” Su Cheng said casually.
His voice was low and magnetic, making Dong Xi feel as if her ears were pregnant.
“Your nose is bleeding,” Su Cheng reminded her.
Dong Xi was stunned for a moment. She hurriedly touched her nose and felt something wet, causing her face to instantly turn red.
Su Cheng sat up, his strong and sharp snake tail rolled Dong Xi up and threw her outside. All the restrictions seemed to have disappeared.
Dong Xi did not even have time to think before she already arrived in the courtyard, and a voice came.” Go and wash up, it’s so dirty.”
Dong Xi looked at the entrance of the Immortal’s cave in silence.
At this moment, she felt like a husband who had just returned home from work and had not taken a shower. Just as she was about to go to bed, she was chased out by her wife to take a shower.
She was speechless. This was clearly her own Immortal’s cave, so what did it have to do with the little snake whether she was dirty or not?
However, a nosebleed was still a little embarrassing. She walked to the pond to wash her face and used the cold water to pat her forehead.
She felt the heat in her heart cool down, and she heaved a sigh of relief.
Never in her dreams would she have thought that the little black snake she had saved would turn out to be a handsome man. If it was in the past, she would have scoffed at the mention of such fairy tales.
