After three shots of alcohol, the atmosphere started to become cheery.
Gu Qing Shan suddenly took a few shot glasses, saying: “I’ve tried all of these, a few of them I think I can do something like this…”
His hands worked quickly, mixing a few kinds together to make a total of three shots.
Then Gu Qing Shan took a shot for himself, tasting it.
“Hm, still a bit lacking”
As he said that, he already took another bottle, poured it in and lightly shook it.
Gu Qing Shan took another sip, nodded in satisfaction and also mixed the other two shots.
“Here, you can try” he gestured to them.
Qin Xiao Lou opened his eyes wide, waiting until Gu Qing Shan finished to slap the table and said: “Junior brother, you mix all these kinds of wine together, wouldn’t it make the flavor chaotic?”
“Sometimes chaotic actually makes it better” Gu Qing Shan nodded to him, smiled and said: “You can try it”
Qin Xiao Lou looked at his glass, a bit hesitant: “Junior brother, before, have you ——-“
“I’ve also brewed alcohol before” Gu Qing Shan answered.
Finally, Qin Xiao Lou braced himself and took a sip from the glass.
After just one sip, he didn’t say anything else and downed the whole thing in one gulp.
“So junior brother was also a kindred spirit”
The way Qin Xiao Lou looked at Gu Qing Shan changed a bit.
Then he wanted to take the other glass as well.
“Do you want to be punished!?” the white goose knocked his hand away and grabbed it: “This one is mine”
As the white goose slightly gulped, the entire glass was finished.
“Hm, that does taste good, another one” he licked his beaks and said.
“Another one for me too” Qin Xiao Lou also quickly said.
Gu Qing Shan mixed them once again, this time the three of them cheers before downing it all in one gulp
“Another one” the white goose.
“There are other ways to mix them, wait a minute” Gu Qing Shan smiled.
Then another mixing test was done.
This time both white goose and Qin Xiao Lou looked at him with interest.
Xiuxiu who was busy eating her chicken also looked up.
Two minutes later.
Qin Xiao Lou was already a bit tipsy, hung onto Gu Qing Shan’s shoulders and spoke loudly: “Junior brother, I have to tell you, all these years, Shifu really has done so many things to complain about, but the fact that she accepted you into our sect is definitely not a mistake”
As the white goose heard that, he squints his eyes and silently drank another glass.
Gu Qing Shan was silently wishing Qin Xiao Lou luck in his mind.
“I have a spell here, I’ll give it to know as a first meeting gift” as Qin Xiao Lou said that, he took out a jade tag and gave to Gu Qing Shan.
As soon as Gu Qing Shan received it, a line of text appeared on the War God UI.
“Discovered Long-ranged Spirit Energy Massaging Method, would you like to spend 1 Soul Points to comprehend it?”
Gu Qing Shan eyes were sharp, as he saw the white goose already stood up to knock the jade tag out of his hand, he already chose.
“Consumed 1 Soul Points, comprehended Long-ranged Spirit Energy Massaging Method”
“Current Soul Points: 650/7”
Just a second after, the jade tag was knocked down to the table by the white goose.
“You can’t look at it” the white goose swiped and took the jade tag away.
Qin Xiao Lou opened his eyes wide, saying: “This is only a method to train his spirit energy, why can’t he learn it?”
The white goose laughed coldly, asking: “Just training spirit energy? You sure?”
He only glared at Qin Xiao Lou and said nothing else.
Being glared at, Qin Xiao Lou lost his confidence and also said nothing.
Gu Qing Shan also didn’t say anything, only silently studied the spell.
It’s quite strange.
What Qin Xiao Lou said wasn’t wrong, this is simply a method to expand your spirit energy outwards, using it to touch another person and help them remove mental and bodily fatigue.
This spell is extremely simple, but also ingenius, since it’s not something anyone can just think of.
Dismissing the small incident, they all returned to drinking.
While everyone was in high spirits, a shy timid voice asked: “Can I also drink this?”
Xiuxiu’s eyes were full of anticipation and said: “I also want to cheers with brothers”
Gu Qing Shan and Qin Xiao Lou looked at the white goose.
“First brother?” Qin Xiao Lou asked.
The white goose reluctantly shook his head and silently sent his voice: “She can’t drink yet, the wound on her soul vessel hasn’t fully healed, and her body is still in treatment, she can’t drink alcohol or there might be problems” (1)
When Xiuxiu saw first brother shook his head, she sorrowfully lowered her head.
The two men and a goose looked at each other, feeling a bit awkward.
Gu Qing Shan then thought a bit, smiled and said: “Xiuxiu, I actually have something here that you could drink”
He grabbed a few spirit fruits on the table, threw them all in the air and shouted: “Secret Art!”
Both the white goose and Qin Xiao Lou became serious, expand their inner sight to see Gu Qing Shan’s movements.
Only to see Gu Qing Shan made a single hand seal and said: “Juicer!”
As spirit energy escaped his body, it crushed and squeezed the fruits flat.
When the juice flowed out, it was caught and guided by the spirit energy into an empty cup on the table.
A refreshing cup of juice was made.
This is one of many daily skills that players made after spirit energy became commonplace.
“This is a juice mix” Gu Qing Shan held the cup and put it in front of Xiuxiu, “I remember these fruits taste quite good together, you can try”
Xiuxiu’s eyes lit up as she extends her small hands to hold the cup and drink.
Once started, she didn’t let go, as a gulping sound was continuously heard from behind the cup.
Xiuxiu drank the entire cup in one go, placed it down on the table and cheerfully said: “Third brother, I want another one!”
Gu Qing Shan smiled and said: “Here, I’ll teach you how to, then you can change the flavor yourself”
On the other side, both the white goose and Qin Xiao Lou had already made their own cups of juice.
This type of simple spell, they only need to look to know how to use.
However, this world has only ever known to eat fruits, no one has ever thought of the concept of drinking the juice from them before.
Xiuxiu also very quickly grasped the spell, made her own cup of juice and knocked her cup with white goose.
“May first brother become strong without equal”
The she knocked cups with Qin Xiao Lou: “May second brother become more reliable soon”
“Hey, I don’t like to hear that” Qin Xiao Lou said, a bit annoyed.
White goose looked at Xiuxiu being happy, glanced at Gu Qing Shan and nodded, showing a hint of a smile in his eyes.
Xiuxiu raised the cup again, smiling sweetly: “Third brother, thank you for teaching me such a cool spell, you’re always welcome at my Orchid Cactus Hall”
“That’s great to hear” Gu Qing Shan also raised his cup and lightly knocked it with Xiuxiu.
Right now, Gu Qing Shan’s mood couldn’t be better.
A happy meal for both guest and host.
Qin Xiao Lou learnt to make cocktail and drank himself to sleep.
His cultivation originally wasn’t that high, yet still drank so much spirit alcohol without expelling the alcohol, so he just slept on the table.
Gu Qing Shan can’t help but bring him to his bed and let him continue to slumber.
White goose carried Xiuxiu, who was also sleeping and reminded him before leaving: “Third brother, sleep well tonight, tomorrow I’ll help you with cultivation”
“Thank you first brother” Gu Qing Shan answered.
He doesn’t ask why it’s him but not Shifu, and he also doesn’t ask what kind of cultivation.
This really pleased white goose.
“Shifu took you in” white goose burped, “seems like she took in the right person”
Then he brought Xiuxiu away.
Gu Qing Shan laughed a bit, then slowly returned to his own Orchid Hall, recalling all that has happened today.
With this meal, he seems to have successfully settled himself into Bai Hua sect.
Returning to Orchid Hall, he silently sat on a cushion to rest, waiting for the hourglass to run out of sand.
As the screen lit up, Gu Qing Shan disappeared from the big hall.

Basically one-way telepathy, some novels explain it as using a technique to control so that only the person and people you want is able to hear your voice, so it can be tapped, unlike real telepathy.
