“The jade card is the proof of your status, with that jade card, there’s nowhere that you cannot go in this Bai Hua Immortal country and Bai Hua Palace” Bai Hua Fairy smiled softly.
“Our sect has so few people so there aren’t any rules to talk about, you can all cultivate as you like, if there is anything you don’t understand you can always ask your first or second brother, if they can’t explain it, you can even come ask me”
Gu Qing Shan and Xiuxiu took their respective jade cards.
Bai Hua Fairy then ordered: “Bai Ying Tian, from today Xiuxiu and Qing Shan will officially live in our sect, go prepare their accommodations”
The white goose spoke, then flew away.
“Hopeless disciple” Bai Hua Fairy spoke again. (1)
“Yes Shifu” Qin Xiao Lou bowed and looked down.
“You can take Qing Shan around for a tour first, explain our sect’s situation, in the afternoon you’ll replace your first brother, go to the green rock to pick people to attempt Bai Hua lists”
“Yes” Qin Xiao Lou said.
“Qing Shan, Xiuxiu, tomorrow you two can begin your cultivation, it’s almost time for the semester examination already, when that time comes, the two of you will both go to see the other cultivators of the land”
“Go, you can leave now”
Gu Qing Shan and Xiuxiu both bowed: “Yes”
The three of them left Bai Hua Palace.
Walking on the road paved with white jade, Qin Xiao Lou rubbed his stomach and suddenly said: “I’m a bit hungry”
Xiuxiu’s eyes lit up, and even Gu Qing Shan held a bit of expectation.
The Womanizer is famous for being an expert in all of the 6 arts, but he’s most known for his skills with cooking.
Spirit Cooking made by Qin Xiao Lou is not only beneficial to the cultivator’s body, but it also tastes amazing, definitely first-rate in the world.
In the past life, Qin Xiao Lou is the target of many gluttonous players to flatter and try to get close to.
Xiuxiu asked with a soft voice: “Second brother, what do we eat today?”
Qin Xiao Lou looked at her a bit, then at Gu Qing Shan, then said: “Ok, since first brother isn’t here, and today is both of your happy day, we’ll have some roasted goose” (TN: “happy day” the way Xiao Lou said it can also mean wedding day)
Gu Qing Shan suddenly understood why Bai Hua Fairy called him “hopeless disciple”.
“No, no, no” Xiuxiu’s angry face became red: “What you do mean our happy day, also, if you dare to cook roasted goose, I’ll tell first brother”
“No don’t, don’t tell him, junior sister Xiuxiu” Qin Xiao Lou panicked.
Gu Qing Shan suggested: “I heard that Bai Hua Immortal country’s spirit flowers and spirit herbs are highly desirable everywhere, can we have a vegetarian meal today?”
Qin Xiao Lou ‘hoh’ in surprise, then said: “Seems like junior brother has done his homework, my vegetarian meals are the best in the world you know”
“Ok then” he thought for a bit “We can use the Cloud ship, just outside Bai Hua country, around Cang Shan sect’s territory, there’s a Yi Hong Lou there, we can listen to the songs, as well as ——–“
Xiuxiu glared at him strictly.
Qin Xiao Lou immediately changed his words: “Hm, or maybe we won’t go there, let’s instead go to the Bai Gie Temple on South Street, they have ready-made vegetarian ingredients there”
However, he secretly blinked a few times at Gu Qing Shan, hinting that there will be more chances from now on.
What a piece of work this guy is, Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but think so in his mind.
The three of them left the palace and went to Bai Gie Temple in the South.
While Qin Xiao Lou was busying preparing the meal, Xiuxiu weren’t too familiar with Gu Qing Shan yet, so she was a bit shy, stood up and walked around looking at the Buddha statues.
It was only now that Gu Qing Shan was a bit free, so he opened the War God UI.
On it, a text box has opened for a long time.
“Destiny Quest: The fight to death (completed)”
“Quest description: Gong Sun Zhi and Ning Yue Xi have made it safely back to humanity’s territory, bringing the world’s secret with them to report to other human cultivators. At the same time, the traitor in humanity’s top brass ———Blade Emperor has been killed by Bai Hua Fairy, humanity as a whole is now in a never before seen situation”
“Quest rewards: War God Thaumaturgy (special story quest)”
“Would you like to receive the quest reward?”
Gu Qing Shan didn’t hesitate to choose: “Yes”
On the War God UI, the text box disappeared, replaced with a round wheel.
There were five slots in the wheel, on them were some complicated patterns and symbols.
Another line of text appeared.
“The user has 48 hours to collect items that match the description of the wheel and put them in the slots”
“No matter if the 5 items are collected or not, after 48 hours, the user will get the chance to pick one War God Thaumaturgy”
“The quicker the collection speed, the higher grade the items, the higher the chance to get a powerful thaumaturgy”
Gu Qing Shan looked at the description, then rubbed his chin.
No matter if he collects the items or not, he’ll still get a thaumaturgy.
But if he doesn’t take too long, and the items he collects are high quality, he’ll be able to guarantee himself a strong thaumaturgy.
The time limit is only 48 hours.
Gu Qing Shan also quickly looked at the 5 patterns.
The first one, a monster whose face can’t be seen laid on the ground, gnawing on corpses.
The second one, a complicated stairway that leads downwards, all the way to a black bottomless pit.
The third one, a sea of stars, in it a planet being swallowed up by a monster with its body.
Gu Qing Shan looked at that and contemplated: “These patterns, could it be…”
He then continued looking, the fourth pattern was a scene of the dead rising from their graves, while the fifth is a thick sea of clouds with arms and legs sticking out of them.
They are Huang Quan type and Unknown type respectively, Unknown type is also called chaos-species.
The Faceless Giant is one of those chaos-species monsters.
Sure enough, Gu Qing Shan felt relieved.
This is thanks to him returning from the Apocalypse that he’d know so many types of monsters.
If it was anyone else, they probably wouldn’t even understand what these patterns are meant to represent.
These five patterns depict the types of monsters and demons that attacked the two worlds, dividing into 5 types total.
In order, they are Chaos type, Abyss type, Space type, Huang Quan type and Unknown type (TN: chaos type and chaos species are apparently different)
If that’s the case, then these 5 slots are meant to be filled with the body parts of those five monster types?
Gu Qing Shan has already solved the puzzle.
But then, he frowned.
I don’t have much time, where the heck would I go to find enough materials from the five types?
While he was thinking, he felt someone tapping his shoulder.
“What are you thinking about that so deeply that you’d frown?” Qin Xiao Lou set out the plates on the table and asked.
“Ah, I was thinking of where to get some monster body parts” Gu Qing Shan answered.
Qin Xiao Lou face turned serious, then said: “I’ll give you some advice, those things don’t taste very good”
From the way he said it, it seems he has already tried.
Gu Qing Shan felt a chill and quickly explained: “Not for eating, I was going to use them for something else”
Qin Xiao Lou then laughed and said: “I was wondering why you looked so worried, it seems like you haven’t understood what your status means”
“Status?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“That’s right” Qin Xiao Lou stuck his chest out, saying: “You’re a part of Bai Hua sect, direct disciple of one of the three Saints, the entire Bai Hua Immortal country belongs to your Shifu, what kind of cultivation resources could you possibly want that you can’t get?”
He then continued: “I’m managing about half the treasuries, after lunch I’ll bring you there ——–you can take as much as you can carry”
Gu Qing Shan: “Shifu won’t say anything?”
Qin Xiao Lou turned around and looked at him again: “She won’t mind, just take whatever you like, as long as you don’t make her lose face during the semester examination”
Gu Qing Shan understood, saying: “Naturally”
“Is the semester examinations hard?” a young girl’s voice was heard.
As they looked back, they saw it was Xiuxiu who just returned.
(1) Hopeless disciple: the original word had a much stronger meaning, usually this is what masters call students that have betrayed their expectations, with a slight tone of wanting to kick them out.
