Qin Xiao Lou then smiled: “Ah, it’s not a matter of hard or not, all we have to do is show up there, the only problem is that I already went last time so I can’t go again, so we’ll need you and third brother this time”
Xiuxiu looked at Gu Qing Shan anxiously, as well as anticipation and asked: “Will we be alright?”
Since they’ve only just met, the little girl being a bit on guard against him is understandable.
Gu Qing Shan smiled: “There’s no problem, you can relax”
As everyone is here, Qin Xiao Lou started to set up the table.
While doing that, he was also complaining: “Qing Shan, you don’t know this, but first brother is a demon beast, while I don’t particularly like cultivating, Xiuxiu is still small, so in our whole sect there isn’t a single normal cultivator to keep up reputation”
Gu Qing Shan smiled: “No worries, I’ll do my best”
Qin Xiao Lou was very pleased with his attitude and put his hand over his shoulder: “That’s right, we’ll be depending on you from now on”
“You just want to slack off” Xiuxiu squints her nose and muttered.
Qin Xiao Lou acted like he didn’t hear it and pushed them to eat.
His cooking really was exceptional, completely fitting for his reputation of being an expert in all the 6 arts.
Gu Qing Shan and Xiuxiu just sat and ate without saying much.
After lunch, when she heard they wanted to go get monster parts, Xiuxiu left.
Qin Xiao Lou brought Gu Qing Shan to a barren mountain area.
“Monsters stink very badly when they’re alive, and even worse when they’re dead, so we put all of them here” Qin Xiao Lou said.
Gu Qing Shan extends his sight.
This is a completely barren, dead mountain without any signs of living beings for thousands of miles.
Looking at the bottom of the mountain, you can see all sorts of strange things laying everywhere.
A giant stone ball as big as 7 people, a white stone monument, a bruised bronze wood coffin, a bloody doll.
All these items that you can’t quite explain, everywhere, filing the entire mountain.
Qin Xiao Lou said: “These things are all a bunch of corpses and other boring stuff, let’s go, there’s more at the top”
“Yes” Gu Qing Shan answered.
As they walked along the stone path, they very quickly ascended the mountain.
Along the way, Qin Xiao Lou picked up a broken Longsword, muttering: “Strange, last time I didn’t see this thing here”
Before he could even finish, a phantom of a middle-age man flew out from the sword.
“Young one, you’re blessed, I’m a Tian Wang realm cultivator, due to being wounded too badly I can’t not hide in the sword to save my strength, take me out of here and I’ll teach you how to cultivate” the middle-age man’s phantom said.
“Ah? You’re in Tian Wang in which age?” Qin Xiao Lou asked with interest.
The middle-age phantom was stunned as he didn’t expect to get this kind of reaction.
He thought for a bit, then: “3000 years ago…”
“You’re already out of date, old man”
Qin Xiao Lou didn’t wait for him to finish, only put the sword back in the sheath and threw it on the ground.
As the sheath glowed, the sword inside struggled twice before becoming silent again.
“Bullshit Tian Wang realm, never heard of it before”
“Even dared to try taking over this young master’s body, I’ve only let you go because you’re a property of our sect”
As Qin Xiao Lou said that, he kept going.
“Wait” Gu Qing Shan suddenly picked up the broken sword “Can I take it?”
“As long as you have a use for it” Qin Xiao Lou answered.
Gu Qing Shan tapped his Inventory Bag and put the sword inside.
This would be a Huang Quan type, and quite the unique one as well.
Gu Qing Shan was very happy to find it.
After that, he found a duo-horned Grey Dragonewt claw, a monster skull with ten eyes, and a corpse piece that’s covered by a small cloud on the mountain.
Gu Qing Shan was convinced that there’s nowhere else that’s easier to get monster corpse parts than here.
The broken sword is a unique Huang Quan type, the duo-horned Grey Dragonewt is a Chaos type, the ten-eyed monster is an Abyss type, and the cloud-covered corpse piece is an Unknown type.
The only one left is Space type.
This world doesn’t have any Space type, so Gu Qing Shan will have to find one after he returns to Reality.
This Quest would be at least 100 times harder to complete if he weren’t Bai Hua Fairy’s disciple.
Gu Qing Shan looked a bit in his Inventory Bag, confirming that all the parts he picked were also high quality.
He breathed out in relief.
The Quest is already more than half-done; Gu Qing Shan is itching to know what kind of Thaumaturgy will he be able to get.
While they went down the mountain, Gu Qing Shan looked at all the corpses and couldn’t help but ask: “Who killed all these? Shifu?”
Qin Xiao Lou shrinks his neck, a rare sight, and said: “Shifu isn’t that free, all this is the goose’s doing”
So it IS her.
Gu Qing Shan silently said in his mind.
Where they got off the mountain was conveniently not too far from the green rock.
Around the green rock, hundreds of cultivators were sitting down, silently meditating, a very magnificent sight.
This was the Saint’s territory, so no one dares to riot of complain.
Since there’s no one here mediate the Bai Hua list attempts, and they didn’t want to just leave, they all decided to just sit and meditate on the spot.
Qin Xiao Lou: “Ok, I’ll have to replace that goose with choosing the people to attempt the lists, are you going to wait for me or go back first?”
Gu Qing Shan answered, since Qin Xiao Lou already went with him to pick out corpse parts for so long, if he were to leave right now that’ll be rude.
“Ok then, if you feel like you can’t wait you can just go back to Bai Hua palace first, the goose is probably almost done anyways”
As they finished speaking, Qin Xiao Lou flew upwards, landing on the green rock.
He shouted: “Now! Bai Ying Tian have business to attend to, for the rest of today, I, Qin Xiao Lou, will be picking people for the lists”
Numerous cultivators stood up, saying: “Then please give us the test, fellow Dao seeker”
“Hm, that’s right, the test for today, let me think” Qin Xiao Lou thought for a bit.
While every cultivator was tensely waiting, he clapped his hand and said: “Right”
“The test for today, is to make me pleased”
All the cultivators were speechless.
Qin Xiao Lou looked happy beyond compare, as if he was so proud of what he had thought of: “All of you line up, if you can please me in any way at all, you can go left and attempt a list!”
“Fair warning, no seduction allows, and I don’t need spirit stones!” he thought a bit more then added.
As Gu Qing Shan saw this, he was completely flabbergasted.
He knows from history that Qin Xiao Lou was a person with a free spirit. But having lived 2 lives, this is the first time he knows that someone can be this free-spirited.
“See, clearly unacceptable right? That’s why we urgently need a normal human cultivator” a voice was heard from behind him.
As Gu Qing Shan turned around, it was the white goose, Bai Ying Tian.
Could it be this is the real reason why Bai Hua Fairy took me in as a disciple?
Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but think that.
“Let’s go, no need to watch his antics, your place is already settled, I’ll guide you” the white goose said.
Gu Qing Shan clasped his hand: “Thank you first brother”
The white goose nodded and took Gu Qing Shan flying.
“If you can, try to take care of your junior sister a bit more” the white goose said.
Even though Gu Qing Shan wasn’t very clear why, but since Bai Hua Fairy said so, he just agreed.
As the white goose was afraid Gu Qing Shan wouldn’t understand, he continued to explain: “She was an old acquaintance of the Saint”
