On another side.

Gu Qing Shan and everyone followed the guard cultivator outside.

As they walked, the guard cultivator asked: “Which sects are you from?”

“Bai Hua sect”

“Yao Guang sect”

“Heaven’s Limit sect”

The guard cultivator turned around, looked at the Xiao Qi Chaplain armor Gu Qing Shan wore and said: “Ah, so you’re the famous Sword 15 of Bai Hua sect”

His face was a bit less cold than before, thinking a bit before saying: “At this place we only have you that’s in Bai Hua sect, there aren’t any from Heaven’s Limit sect as well, but there are a few Yao Guang sect cultivators that came just yesterday”

“Is there someone here called Leng Tian Xing?” Gu Qing Shan asked.

“Leng Tian Xing? He’s here” the guard cultivator said, “want me to guide you?”

“We still have some wounded here, please help arrange a place for them to rest and recover first” Gu Qing Shan quickly said.

The guard cultivator nodded and brought them to a place where cultivators were gathering.

At this place, the ground was soaked in smelly black blood, many cultivators were wounded all over, quite a few were receiving treatment, but even more were left groaning and moaning in pain.

Looking around, it was a scene of complete carnage and chaos.

Seeing that, Gu Qing Shan frowned, then clasped his hand to the guard cultivator, asking: “Can you help find a better place for them? The girls were all hurt really badly, not to mention very mentally shaken on the march here, so if they are placed here, it would be hard for them to even meditate properly”

Saying so, he secretly handed a few spirit stones to him.

“There’s no need for that, what’s with you, hah!”

The guard cultivator refused for the sake of refusal, but when it was pushed back by Gu Qing Shan again, he swiftly pocketed it.

After thinking a bit more, he still showed a reluctant face, saying: “The camp is already quite full of people, so it’s a bit ——-“

Gu Qing Shan then took out a communication talisman, saying: “This is mine, in the future, you can take this talisman as my invitation for you to be a guest at our Bai Hua sect”

An invitation to Bai Hua sect.

The guard cultivator would not be able to get anything other benefits better than this out of him.

Looking at the female cultivators, he indeed saw that their clothes were stained with blood, their faces haggard, barely able to stand up straight, dragging their feet while supporting each other.

One of the thinner girls were even shaking.

Under these conditions, they certainly couldn’t be left here, otherwise if they fall to demonic possession, it would be very troublesome.

The guard cultivator couldn’t help but nod.

He thought for a bit, then said: “Hm, these are wounds from killing demons for the good of mankind, certain they do need some better conditions. I do remember one place, come with me”

The group followed the guard cultivator through the camp, going towards a corner at the East of the camp.

This place was relatively clean, and since it’s a secluded place, loud noises wouldn’t travel here easily, making for a peaceful place to rest and recover.

Feeling around with his inner sight, he noticed there was a spirit funnel formation at one corner, providing ample spirit energy.

Seeing that, the female cultivators group was very satisfied.

Gu Qing Shan thanked the guard cultivator.

He then looked at the girls, saying gently: “You girls rest here first, don’t think about other matters, recover to your peak conditions first then we’ll talk more”

“Thank you, senior brother Gu”

The girls all looked at him, thinking about the frightening journey before, they couldn’t help but feel gratitude.

Wang Ning Xiang gave him an active communication talisman.

Gu Qing Shan took it and infused it with spirit energy, hearing Ning Yue Xi’s voice: “You girls tell him to contact me after everything is done”

Giving it back to Wang Ning Xiang, Gu Qing Shan said: “Ok, I got it, I’ll contact her now”

Gu Qing Shan nodded at the girls, walked outside with Bai Hai Dong and left with the guard cultivator.

On the way, he took out a communication talisman, frowned and use inner sight to record something inside.

On the talisman was a small Orchid insignia.

All the girls only need a glance to recognize it was Ning Yue Xi’s communication talisman.

Looking at how serious Gu Qing Shan was acting, they imagine he’s talking about something extremely important.

———he clearly risked his life to rescue everyone from the horde of demons, as well as protecting them all the way here, but not only did he not take all the credit, he wasn’t acting all prideful about it either.

Thinking back at the rest of the male cultivators in the sect, whenever they could do anything to help Ning Yue Xi, they all gloated about it for at least half a month, as if that got them so much closer to the Saintess or something.

Wang Ning Xiang put her head on Liu Qing Yan’s shoulder, staring at the manly back that’s leaving, she sighed, then started again.

“What’s with you?” Zhang Cui Wei and Dong Xue asked her together.

All the sisters here have a very close relationship with each other, hearing her sighed, they all asked with interest.

“I’ve always thought that the best part about the Saintess is her cultivation talents” Wang Ning Xiang said, ‘but now I can see that’s not the case”

“Then what is it?” Dong Xue asked.

“It’s her discerning eyes” Wang Ning Xiang answered vaguely.

Gu Qing Shan and Bai Hai Dong were walking on the camp road, following the guard cultivator to meet Leng Tian Xing.


Suddenly, a cultivator jumped out to block their way.

This was a young male cultivator; his eyes were bloodshot almost like he just cried.

Glaring at Gu Qing Shan, he shouted: “Were you the one that killed Li Chu Chen?”

Gu Qing Shan evaluated him a bit, seeing that he held a beast tamer’s whip in hand and hung 4-5 spirit beast bags on his waist, he instantly knew where he came from.

“I did” Gu Qing Shan nodded.

“You fucking bastard ——“ just as the male cultivator wanted to pounce on him, the guard cultivator already held him back.

“What are you doing?” the guard cultivator strictly asked.

“Who gave him the right to kill my big brother!” the male cultivator shouted, “I’ll get revenge for my big brother!”

The guard cultivator glared sharply, about to take out a communication talisman.

Right at that moment, a group of cultivators came running, both young and old, holding the male cultivator back.

A cultivator that looked like an Elder came, bowed to the guard cultivator and said: “No need to use the talisman, no need to, he still young, this is only the first time he went out so he doesn’t understand matters in the camp”

The guard cultivator recognized the man to be an elder of Spirit Beast sect, putting away the communication talisman and spoke in a low voice: “Watch him well! If he doesn’t follow the rules of the camp and gets caught by a General, no one can save him”

The elder smiled to pass it off, then looked at Gu Qing Shan.

“Brat, which sect are you from? What a cruel thing you did” he spoke without a specific tone in his voice.

Hearing that, Gu Qing Shan frowned.

“You don’t need to care about which sect I’m from” Gu Qing Shan slowly spoke, “your sect’s disciple was a coward, so afraid of death that he ran away on his own when he was stationed guard the camp, leading to the death of a Xiao Qi Chaplain, if we were just a bit unfortunate, the 5 wounded female cultivators would have also died right there”

“That’s why I followed military law and killed him, everything had already passed the Heart Appraisal, confirming that there was no problem”

He stared at the other party: “He was a deserter, so I killed him. Questioning me like this, you mean to take advantage of being stronger to frighten me?”

Hearing that, all the cultivators that gathered to watch all nodded in agreement, a few even yelled out supporting Gu Qing Shan.

The worst thing to do in the military is abandoning your comrade, so everyone unanimously looks down on cowards.
