Chapter 6 – Kiêm Điệp’s Deep Love
(Kiêm Điệp is the name of a type of bird from ancient times. The male bird has the left wing and the female bird has the right. They have to be always next to each other to be able to fly, like the deep love and affection of a couple in love.)
The bet that lasted for 16 years ended abruptly with the winner being some random fella from who knows where. All the punters cried and called foul play at the surprising result. This story became the hottest news in the celestial world, no doubt were further flamed by those who had participated in the mortal world.
When Hua Qian Gu regained consciousness, she was at the Hall of Emotionless of Chang Liu Mountain. She still could not see anything but can only hear people talking.
“Gu Tou Shifu, you have awaken?” You Ruo held her hand as Tang Bao, who is now in her original form, crawled out from her ear.
“Shuo Feng?” Hua Qian Gu worriedly asked.
“Qian Gu, I am here.” Shuo Feng smiled widely as he flicked her forehead. She turned around to face Bai Zi Hua, Dong Fang Yu Qing and Sha Qian Mo.
“I saw everyone playing together so happily, so I decided to join out of boredom. I don’t mean any harm. I’m sure that Jun Zhang would not be offended and keep a grudge about it…”
Bai Zi Hua casually casted Shuo Feng a look and did not say anything. Revenge will be sweet, it’s only a matter of when. Shuo Feng suddenly felt a cold chill running through his back.
Sheng Xiao Mo rushed forward to Shuo Feng in anger, “You idiot, everything was going well until you came and messed it all up. What a waste of my efforts in taking care of her all these years!”
Hua Qian Gu held Shuo Feng’s hand, so emotional that she could not anything. Finally Shuo Feng has returned and faster than she had imagined. Now she has no more regrets, except for Zhu Ran…
“You stinking scholar, you knew that Liu Huo was Shuo Feng for a long time now, am I right?” Sha Qian Mo’s eyes narrowed accusingly. Dong Fang Yu Qing smiled knowingly and shrugged.
Everyone has now returned to their original form with a pleasant atmosphere surrounding them. Mo Yan looked to Shuo Feng and silently thought to himself that the result of this bet was not too bad. If the person who had won was Dong Fang Yu Qing or someone else, even if Zi Hua did not say anything, he definitely would hold a grudge.
Sha Qian Mo angrily announced, “The bet is done now, hurry and cure Xiao Bu Dian’s eyes.”
Dong Fang Yu Qing nodded. “The medicine was buried in Yang Huo Mountain for 15 years and is now about ready to be used. However, she would also require acupuncture but this treatment is highly inappropriate for me to perform so….”
Everyone had understood what Dong Fang Yu Qing meant: acupuncture requires one to take off their clothes.
“I will do it.” Bai Zi Hua said.
Dong Fang Yu Qing nodded, “It will hurt as it requires inserting the needles through the bone. Gu Tou you have to tolerate the pain. We will have to wait for a few more days while I show Zun Shang how to do it.”
“No!” Hua Qian Gu protested. “Let’s wait for two more months!”
Everyone looked puzzled. “Why do we have to wait for two more months?”
Hua Qian Gu scrunched up her face and embarrassedly leaned forward on her thighs, hiding her face, “I want to lose weight!”
Everyone laughed out loud at the absurdity. Hua Qian Gu still have a plump body from when she was in the mortal realm so obviously she didn’t want to be exposed like this in front of Bai Zi Hua.
“It’s all your fault!” Hua Qian Gu threw a pillow at Dong Fang Yu Qing.
Dong Fang Yu Qing held the pillow to his body, his smile sincere, “Of course I have to make you a bit chubby so that you know who is sincere to you and who is not.”
“Hmpf!” Hua Qian Gu scrunched her face up in annoyance at Dong Fang. Actually she felt very relieved now…this bet have ended without a hitch, and honestly ended in an even better result than she had anticipated. She did not change her feelings, neither did she let her teacher win. How dare they bet on her? This is far from over…
In a blink of an eye, two months have passed. Hua Qian Gu had focused all her efforts in losing weight. Even though there were many diet pills available up in Heaven, it was nothing compared to just exercising.
On the day of the acupuncture treatment, Hua Qian Gu was nervous. After taking a bath she contemplated for a long time what she would wear and decided to use silk cloth to cover the important areas on her body and put on a see-through robe.
She easily found her way to Hall of Emotionless, her heart beating rapidly with each step.
“Xiao Gu, close the door.”
Bai Zi Hua’s voice resonated from inside his room, Hua Qian Gu could not help but gulped nervously. Inside, the room was decorated with soft flowing silk hanging from the ceiling, the burned incense had a peculiar smell, inciting passion from within her.
She took a step inside and heard Bai Zi Hua speak, “Watch out for the step.” Hua Qian Gu purposely fell forward.
And without a doubt, she instantly felt the familiar arms warmly wrapping around her to catch her fall.
“Xiao Gu.” He sounded displeased, as if he didn’t approve of her defiant ways.
Hua Qian Gu held onto Bai Zi Hua’s neck, leaned in and whispered, “Teacher, carry me over.”
Bai Zi Hua felt a little incredulous as he gently carried her across and placed her on the chaise lounge.
Hua Qian Gu’s long hair was swept to the side, her figure was alluring. This is the first time that Bai Zi Hua have seen her like this and in a rare moment his face blushed. Afraid that this might distract his concentration in treating her, he tore a white cloth and covered his eyes with it.
Hua Qian Gu felt slightly disappointed. They’re an old married couple already, what is there to be shy about? She settled herself on the lounge and refused to do anything else. Bai Zi Hua had no choice but to unclothe her robe and unwrap the silk cloth himself.
Hua Qian Gu could feel the acupuncture needles by the side. Some needles were long and some were short, with about a hundred needles in total; she felt a chill run down her spine.
“Xiao Gu, don’t be afraid.” Bai Zi Hua tried to calm her down. His left hand inserted a needle into her nape and in a blink of an eye, 3 more needles were inserted into her spinal area.
Hua Qian Gu felt pain shooting throughout her body. This acupuncture treatment is not through the skin but through the bones. Every part of her body tensed up in agony, she bit her lip as to not make a sound. Her teacher’s cold hands felt like flowing water that elicited all of her painful memories.
Realising that she was shivering from the pain, Bai Zi Hua frowned.
“Can you still take it?”
Hua Qian Gu laughed, “Don’t worry and just continue on. I could take the Vanquish of the Soul Nails before so this is nothing.”
The hand behind her stopped and Hua Qian Gu realised that she had said something that shouldn’t be said. She quickly tried to change the topic so Bai Zi Hua could continue on.
Bai Zi Hua remembered the bloody image of Hua Qian Gu nailed to the pole on Chang Liu Mountain that his hand began to involuntarily shake.
Knowing that the faster he works the less she will suffer from the pain, Bai Zi Hua forced himself to erase the image from his mind and quickly inserted a few more needles.
Even though his eyes were blindfolded and he could not see Hua Qian Gu’s pain or even a sound of discomfort from her, he could still feel her cold sweat and her heavy breathing making him lose his calm.
He inserts the needles through the bones then withdraw them all out. Then he starts on her pressure points. Bai Zi Hua gently wiped the sweat on her face and her body while he performs the treatment.
On the other hand, Hua Qian Gu felt more discomfort, the pain is bearable now but the fingers that kept inserting the needles in her body is giving her chills! And he had the nerve to tell her to stay still! She would like him to try it and see it for himself if can stay still or not!
Bai Zi Hua couldn’t comprehend why Hua Qian Gu was silent before but is writhing in pain now. Her soft voice pricked into his heart, making him anxious.
After he finished the pressure points on Hua Qian Gu’s body, he proceeded to her legs. She felt even more uncomfortable, especially in her inner thighs. If she hadn’t known of Bai Zi Hua’s uprightness, she would have thought that he was seducing her.
Hua Qian Gu seethed internally, ‘payback will be hell’ she thought.
Finally Bai Zi Hua finished the back, he let out a sigh of relief.
After sipping a cup of tea, Hua Qian Gu felt sleepy as Bai Zua withdraw the remaining needles out from her back. Hua Qian Gu then wearily turned around and prepared for the acupuncture on her chest area.
Opening her eyes, she was surprised to discover that she had regained her eyesight. She smiled happily but did not let out a sound as she observed Bai Zi Hua’s frowning face of concentration.
Bai Zi Hua was afraid that he would become distracted so he blindfolded his eyes, that way he was able to pretend that the person in front of him was a normal patient. But he was thrown off by her figure, the more he thought of it, the more he was distracted.
His left hand searched for the pressure point, his right hand inserted the needle, he repeated the same process but when he glided his hand down he accidentally brushed past Hua Qian Gu’s breast, and immediately jerked his hand back. Unexpectedly, she grabbed his hand and held it to her chest. The situation now was different from the past, this soft gentle feeling made Bai Zi Hua become lightheaded.
“Teacher, it hurts…” Hua Qian Gu tried to hold back her laugh, watching Bai Zi Hua’s forehead covered with huge droplets of sweat.
“Xiao Gu, stop playing…” Bai Zi Hua wanted to take his hand back but Hua Qian Gu had a tight grip and she let him feel around her chest a couple of times, making him blush profusely.
“Teacher, can you feel my heart beating?” Hua Qian Gu almost couldn’t hold in her laugh.
Hearing her words, Bai Zi Hua became more aware of the soft skin under his hand and the sound of her beating heart.
“Teacher, you’re embarrassed.”
“Stop playing, I might do it incorrectly.” Bai Zi Hua withdrew his hand and leaned back a bit.
He calmed his nerves once again and resumed the acupuncture treatment.
Hua Qian Gu’s arms were next so she couldn’t move around anymore. Seeing his embarrassed face made her think that this bet was well worth it.
An hour passed by, finally the acupuncture treatment was done.
Bai Zi Hua withdrew the last needle from her body and asked, “Xiao Gu, are you able to see now? How are you feeling?”
“My whole body feels hot, like I’m on fire. Teacher, help me cool down.”
Hua Qian Gu sat up and flew towards Bai Zi Hua’s body. Bai Zi Hua hugged her naked body and again felt shy.
“Put on your clothes first.”
“No, this way feels cooler.”
Hua Qian Gu leaned in closer to Bai Zi Hua’s face and planted a chaste kiss on his nose.
“Teacher, I can see now…”
A glimpse of a smile appeared on his lips.
“It was you who said that once I regain my eyesight, we can…”
Her lips perked up, Bai Zi Hua was a little confused. He half wanted to take off his blindfold but was blocked by Hua Qian Gu’s face. She wanted him to know what the feeling of not having sight was like. Hmpf, wasn’t he the bold one who kissed her at the Milky Way that night? Now he is being shy? As if!
Hua Qian Gu kissed his eyes through the blindfold.
Bai Zi Hua felt her naughty hands roaming across his chest and back. Her breathe heavy on his ears. She then kissed his ear and licked the edges and then gently sucked. His head was pounding, he hugged Hua Qian Gu tightly and all he could do was succumbed to her touches.
He couldn’t be intimate with her before because he was afraid that it would interrupt his training and rendered him unable to treat her properly. But now…now there’s nothing for him to worry about, so he allowed himself to go with the flow.
Bai Zi Hua kissed her passionately, his tongue went in strong and flexible. Hua Qian Gu suddenly softened as Bai Zi Hua pressed down towards her.
It was at this point that Bai Zi Hua’s tongue was bitten hard, drawing a small amount of blood. Hua Qian Gu chuckled lightly as she escaped from his grasp.
“Teacher always said: Xiao Gu is still young, too young! Besides I can already see now, I don’t need you to look after me anymore. From now on, we’ll continue to have separate rooms. As for our unfinished business, let’s wait for another two years and we’ll talk then!”
Who told you to allow them to make me the target of the bet and had the audacity to use that kissing technique on me to make me love you? Her rage is not yet over, she also knows how to seduce others, see how good she is now? Too bad if you don’t like it! Ha ha ha!
Bai Zi Hua could not help but sighed. He put his blindfold down and gave her a glance.
He pondered to himself, who was the naughty girl who slid into his covers and tried to take advantage of him every night?
Hua Qian Gu saw the serious stare in Bai Zi Hua’s eyes and was momentarily taken aback. She quickly regained her composure, “Oh, don’t you underestimate me! If you don’t believe, then let’s make a bet. I am absolutely confident I could wait two years before I would eat you whole! Just you wait!”
Hua Qian Gu jeered at him, put on her clothes and quickly ran outside. Bai Zi Hua didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry and resided to a deep long sigh instead.
A two year bet? Could it be that she is now addicted to gambling now?
It’s not because he was overconfident of his attractiveness, but it was the other person’s determination that was just too weak. And besides, it’s not like he can’t be the one to eat her whole, right?
Xiao Gu, you are sure to lose the bet this time!
