Chapter 3 – The School Of Chang Liu

Dawn just arrived and Hua Qian Gu was already woken up by Sheng Xiao Mo to do her make up. Her face was covered in white foundation, even her lips were painted red; she wore new clothes, her hair decorated with a jade brooch; around her neck was a gold necklace, her wrist a jade bracelet. Hua Qian Gu felt like she was dressed like an old landlady but this old landlady was in such a rush that she couldn’t even eat 1 steamed bun before leaving.

Sheng Xiao Mo was afraid that she would escape from school mid-way so he purposely hired a sedan chair and had several tall and muscly men to transport her to the school of Chang Liu. Hua Qian Gu cried tearfully when she left.

When people saw her, they couldn’t help but whispered amongst themselves and laughed, wondering which wealthy family this white and chubby miss belongs to, whom could barely walk.

Hua Qian Gu lifted her head to see four large words newly painted in gold hanging at the top of the entrance – School Of Chang Liu.

Fine, she’ll study since she already did so in the past for a couple of days and her father also taught her a few words. Although she wasn’t a genius but as long as she doesn’t hate learning then it is fine.

All the students at the school ranged from 6 to 30 years old and mostly comprise of students of her age. She heard that this school was previously known as School of Bodhi and its headmaster was a senior scholar surnamed Qin. The number of students started to dwindle and the school was almost on the brink of closing down. Fortunately, the school recently received a large amount of funding and was able to invite a lot of high calibre teachers who were famous to come and teach. There were also a lot of high ranking officials who came for the inauguration and they also helped with the school’s promotions. This time there are a lot of rich businessmen from Hangzhou who have sent their children to come and learn; Hua Qian Gu also falls into this category.

She’s not sure why her father had taken studying at this school so seriously. She guessed that it must be because her father hated her now and wanted her to find someone nice at this school to marry her off. Besides, a good amount of people had the same reasoning for coming here.

About 100 new students have registered this year. They all gathered at the school’s main hall to announce their attendance. Later, they would be divided into 4 separate classes called: Plum Blossom, Orchid, Chrysanthemum and Bamboo class.

Although the school’s name had changed but the headmaster was still senior scholar Qin. He was quite old in age and seemed weak compared to the other invited teachers sitting next to him.

Headmaster Qin welcomed the new students first and expressed his hope for their future. He then started to introduce the teachers to the students. In this school, besides the Four Books and Five Classics which were compulsory to learn from, the students were allowed to choose other subjects as well.

“This is elder teacher Yan Wen Dao Yan who will be teaching you literature. This is Dong Fang Yu Qing who will be teaching you…”

“Calligraphy.” Dong Fang Yu Qing finished for him. He smiled gracefully and the students below drew a deep breath.

Hua Qian Gu was so hungry to the point that she felt dizzy and didn’t have the energy to lift her head. The morning sun wasn’t too much but it still caused her forehead to sweat profusely.

Afterwards, the teachers introduced themselves one by one and what they’ll be teaching.

“I am Lie Huo, my responsibility is to teach cooking.” The students below were all bewildered at this.

“I am Lei Yin, I will be teaching you medicine and acupuncture.” The students were once again bewildered at this.

“I am Qing Liu, I’ll be teaching you how to brew wine and drink wine.”

This time even headmaster Qin scrunched up his face in surprise, softly asking, “You’re teaching how to drink wine as well?”

“Of course, it’s an effective way to communicate and make connections with others.”

“Is that so…” Headmaster Qin said as his stroke his beard.

“I am Luo Shi Yi, I happily welcome you to participate in my animal farming program.”

“I am elder Luo He Dong, specialising in exterminating demons and subduing monsters.” His voice sounded like thunder. The students were all stunned, this school is really special - they teach everything!

“Immortal Mo Bing, I’ll be teaching you art.” The students all exhaled, finally a subject that was normal.

At this moment there was a red haired female who looked like a foreigner spoke, “Everyone can call me Bei Hai*. I don’t know what to teach you students right now…I’ll just open a swimming class.” Everyone had their mouths hanging open, they couldn’t believe there was a female teacher and not just the one either. Bei Hai had just finished her introduction when the other female teacher also spoke up.

*Bei Hai = North Sea

“I am Sha Qian Mo, things such as embroidery, tailoring, makeup, fashion design; anything that’s got to do with beauty, just come and ask me.”

Bei Hai can be considered as a beauty already but if one was to compare her with the other female teacher then there’s still a big difference. Everyone below were astonished, especially the male students who had on the look of determination to choose the subjects that the beautiful female teachers were teaching.

Sha Qian Mo had been scanning the students below several times but still he could not see his lovely Xiao Bu Dian* anywhere. He had wanted to participate in the bet but he did not agree to use a normal appearance. In his eyes, normal is ugly and ugly means nothing special! He annoyed Dong Fang Yu Qing for more than half a day and finally he was able to negotiate a deal. He could use an extraordinary appearance but for the first 3 months, he must live as a female.

*Xiao Bu Dian = Small child = Little tiny thing = what Sha Qian Mo calls Hua Qian Gu

Sha Qian Mo’s thinking was quite simple. His Xiao Bu Dian had also mistaken him to be a female before; coupled with the fact that he had low expectations of winning this bet anyway. He only wanted to come play and annoy Dong Fang Yu Qing. He thought it was fine to lose to Bai Zi Hua (he can accept this reality) but if he was to lose to that silly scholar then no way in hell will he accept that. Therefore, if he was to use a female appearance then he, Sha Qian Mo, must be the most beautiful person compared to all the others.

Eventually a lot more teachers introduced themselves. All kinds of subjects were available: martial arts, law, planting, weaponry, sculpturing…not just the students but even Headmaster Qin continuously wiped his sweat wondering to himself what kind of teachers did he invite to come teach!

Hua Qian Gu was both hungry and tired. When she left the house, Sheng Xiao Mo had used up all his strength to fit her into something called a ‘corset’. It was tightened around her waist to the point of suffocation. She felt her head spinning when a kind female student next to her caught her in time.

“Are you alright?”

Hua Qian Gu waved her arms - even talking is hard. Her face swollen red like a pig’s liver when suddenly she heard a clear but cold voice speak up.

“I am Bai Zi Hua, I will teach you students what it means to be patient.”

His voice was like water flowing through her giving her a sense of calm but hearing the teacher’s introductions just now had given her indication that her future was bleak. She thought that coming to this school meant learning literature and art and learning the Four Books and Five Classics, who would’ve known this was what they had to learn.

There were about 30 teachers standing at the front. After the introductions were finished the drawing for the classes began.

At this point everybody at the front became more focused. This is because not one person was able to spot Hua Qian Gu anywhere amongst the students. Of course, save for Dong Fang Yu Qing who was currently waving his fan.

Nan Xiang.”

“Here.”

The student who was called drew his card and gave it to Luo Shi Yi.

“Plum Blossom class.”

The student heard his designation and quickly stood in the respective class line.

“Huo Xi, Bamboo class.”

“Liu Huo, Bamboo class.”

Ru Shuang, Orchid class.”



Everything went according to plan. You Ruo, Huo Xi, Wu Qing Luo, Tang Bao and other students of Chang Liu were all arranged to be in the same Bamboo class as Hua Qian Gu. Unlike the ones who became teachers, all the ones who were students had their memory temporarily erased.

At the end, they all waited for a familiar name being called out: “Hua Qian Gu.”

Everybody at the front unconsciously held their breath, the game they waited for 15 years had finally begun.

Luo Shi Yi called her name twice but there was no movement so he repeated her name.

Hua Qian Gu was falling in and out of consciousness when she finally realized it was her turn to go up and pick her class. She tried her hardest to move her large legs, moving out of line and walked in front of Luo Shi Yi. Luo Shi Yi stared at her with wide eyes and mouth hanging open.

Xiao Bu Dian!” The fan in Sha Qian Mo’s hand dropped to the floor and he abruptly stood up from his seat. He scrunched his face to analyse her. Although she had put on weight to the point of an unrecognizable size, but he could not go wrong with her face, who else could it be but Hua Qian Gu.

Sha Qian Mo tottered and almost fainted, thankfully Immortal Mo Bing was there to catch him as he also starred at her wide-eyed.

Her surroundings fell into a strange silence. Hua Qian Gu drew her card - Bamboo class.

Exhaling, her job done, she’s starving to death. She unsteadily went back to her line, not detecting all the hurting pairs of eyes looking at her from the front.

The sun also seem to not able to take it anymore and hid behind the clouds. A huge force of wind came blowing. Her nose feeling itchy, Hua Qian Gu opened her mouth.

“Ah Choo!”

The sound of material ripping sounded throughout the hall. She froze, realising a huge hole had ripped open at the back, her fat all came rushing out as the corset heroically sacrificed itself.

Instantly she felt her whole body relax. Hua Qian Gu took in a huge breath and then she fell down and subsequently fainted on the floor.

The whole school was silent for 3 seconds before regaining composure. Luo Shi Yi and Immortal Mo Bing were the first to run to her.

Sha Qian Mo pulled up his sleeves and cursed out loud, “That damn Sheng Xiao Mo, I’ll murder him!”

When Hua Qian Gu woke up the sky was already dark and she was lying in her house.

“Father! I’m hungry!” She just woke up and already she’s yelling for food.

“Just a moment.”

Seconds later, Sheng Xiao Mo brought in a bowl of porridge from outside. Hua Qian Gu was happy to see a few grains of rice in the bowl and 2 pieces of food that she hurriedly devoured it.

“Father, I’m still hungry.”

“Hungry, hungry, hungry! You only know how to say that you’re hungry all day! I told you to be good and study. Yet school just started and you embarrassed your father like that!” Sheng Xiao Mo couldn’t help himself and knocked on her forehead with his hand.

Hua Qian Gu cried pathetically. She held onto her father’s long sleeve and conveniently also used it to wipe her mouth. Lifting up her head she noticed something strange. “Father, what happened to your face?”

There was a huge bruise on his eye!

Sheng Xiao Mo angrily clutched his chest and said, “I had an accident!”

Not knowing what embarrassment is and yet she still asked him what happened - wasn’t this all her doing?!

Sha Qian Mo had carried her home, the doors just opened and Sha Qian Mo immediately threw a punch at him.

Haizz…that’s right. Sha Qian Mo couldn’t carry her home properly. It wasn’t due to her weight but it was a matter of her size that he had to carry her home like a sandbag. Sha Qian Mo was so infuriated to the point of losing all colour on his face.

But how could they blame him for it? Whether she eats or not, it still becomes his fault.

He couldn’t believe that he is the upright Ri Zun but now he had to become someone’s nanny and he had to suffer being struck upon without a proper reason to counter attack, haizzz…

Hua Qian Gu returned to school the next day. It took a lot of coaxing but after eating a steamed bun she finally agreed to go to school.

In class, she continued to watch intently as other female students next to her ate baked sesame flatbread. She swallowed her saliva.

“You want to eat?” This was the student who helped caught her last time, she was a very beautiful girl.

Hua Qian Gu did not stand on ceremony and immediately reached for the flatbread and took a bite.

“I am You Ruo, you fainted last time, are you feeling better?”

“I’m alright,” Hua Qian Gu nodded, “I was just starving. My father wanted me to reduce weight.”

A bright girl wearing a green dress sitting at the front also turned her head around, “I have some peach blossom cake leftover, do you want some?”

Hua Qian Gu continuously expressed her gratitude for their kindness. So this school turns out to be really nice. She was sure that she would be punished!

“I am Tang Bao, what is your name?”

“Hua Qian Gu.”

“You want to reduce your weight?”

“Yes I do, but I love to eat more.”

“Then from today onwards if I have anything nice to eat I’ll share it with you.”

“Me too.” You Ruo chuckled, she leaned over and poked Hua Qian Gu’s chubby face. Where ever she poked, a hollow would form.

Moved by their kind gestures, Hua Qian Gu nodded.

It hadn’t been a few days and Hua Qian Gu already made a lot of friends. It turns out making friends was not how she thought it would be. Though there are those who looked down on her because of her weight, but when they saw her naive smile and easy-going nature, even if they mock her it would be useless. So all their energy was aimed at the teachers instead.

Most of the subjects taught at the school were self-chosen. Hua Qian Gu chose Lie Huo’s cooking class and Immortal Mo Bing’s art class. Later, Tang Bao persuaded her to register in Dong Fang Yu Qing’s class and then she was dragged by You Ruo to join Bai Zi Hua’s class. At the end, Sha Qian Mo came up to her and forced her to join his class. It was all quite overwhelming for her.

All the Immortals who wanted to use this chance to step in between Hua Qian Gu’s and Bai Zi Hua’s relationship was determined to use their best seducing skills to win. After all, it was their only opportunity to have the chance to win against Chang Liu’s Zun Shang. They decided to put all their energy to participate in the bet but when they saw Hua Qian Gu’s appearance about half of the participants gave up on the very first day. They opted not to chase after her and became spectators instead.

The ones who stayed and have a high chance of winning were Bai Zi Hua, Dong Fang Yu Qing, Sha Qian Mo and Immortal Mo Bing. Besides Sha Qian Mo who was around Hua Qian Gu all the time (sometimes he would drag her to watch musicals, fly kites, or take her to restaurants) the other participants had made no particular movements.

To uphold his promise, Sha Qian Mo could only tell Hua Qian Gu that he is a man after 3 months. So he thought to overcome this disadvantage by impressing her, hoping that the more time they spend together, the deeper the bond.

Hua Qian Gu also began to notice that suddenly there were a lot of people around her, making her feel a little uncomfortable. But besides eating she did not care much about anything else. Occasionally she would receive fresh flowers, presents or love letters but she felt that it was all a running joke. She kept anything that was edible and threw the rest of her presents away.

For this reason, everybody now knows the key to her heart. Anyone with delicious food will get Hua Qian Gu to follow them obediently. So every day they would bring her food to entice her interest. Hua Qian Gu wondered why there are so many teachers and students offering her food.

Today, after eating together, Hua Qian Gu, Tang Bao and You Ruo went home.

Normally to avoid any suspicions, people would invite all 3 of them together to eat – even Luo Shi Yi is no different. But You Ruo noticed that other people would spend all their energy to pick food for Hua Qian Gu; save for Luo Shi Yi who helped pick food for Tang Bao.

“Qian Gu, all the teachers in our school seem to like you very much.”

Hua Qian Gu nodded, “It might be because they know my father, or did some behind the door activities that made them to focus on me more.” Hua Qian Gu felt that this was the most reasonable explanation.

“Oh, where’s your father? How come we didn’t see him today?” You Ruo awkwardly asked. Every time she came to Hua Qian Gu’s house, she could see Sheng Xiao Mo’s lazy nature that her heart began to beat rapidly.

“Um, he must be out to play with his crickets, he’ll be back soon.”

“Qian Gu, where’s your mother?”

Hua Qian Gu shook her head, “I don’t know. I asked father but he was lazy to explain. He only said that she ran away with another man.”

You Ruo looked at her with tears in her eyes, “Your father took care of you by himself, the hardships he must have gone through. I find him to be still young, why doesn’t he find another companion?”

“He’s always playing around all day, even if he finds another companion they’ll probably run away too.” Hua Qian Gu was already full but she still nibbled on some melon seeds.

You Ruo thought, ‘No, if it was me, I will definitely not run away.’

Tang Bao asked, “Qian Gu, do you have a someone in mind? My family sent me to school to find a good man.” Of course her family that Tang Bao speaks of was acted by other Immortals.

Besides Hua Qian Gu and Sheng Xiao Mo, all the other Immortals have been on the mortal realm for no more than a year.

“A lover?”

“Yes, did you not see Huo Xi and Wu Qing Luo from our class? I heard their family already approved of each other, they’ll probably be married.”

Hua Qian Gu tilted her head in deep thought, the people who made a good impression on her so far was only three people. One was Dong Fang Yu Qing who always smiled at her. Sometimes he would hold her hand to teach her how to write making her heart to beat faster. The other was Immortal Mo Bing whose art skills were beyond exceptional. He would draw a painting wherever he went. She usually felt the emotions behind his eyes, a painful emotion that befall on her from afar, making her feel like she had done something wrong. The last one was Liu Huo who was in her class. Other people would bring her food but only he remembered to bring her water to drink. Every time that she ate too much and choked on her food, he would become her saviour. Additionally, he was smart too, his academic records were superb. Anything that they learn, he would perform the best, making even someone stupid like her to be impressed at his ability.

“Speaking of a lover, I’m quite worried.” Hua Qian Gu wrinkled her eyebrows.

“Worried about what?”

“I’m worried that I might be married to a fool in the future.”

“What?” Tang Bao and You Ruo burst out laughing.

“That’s right, it’s true. When I was born, there’s a strange birthmark on my arm - it’s a sentence!”

Hua Qian Gu pulled her sleeves up for both of them to see. There are definitely 4 words written on her arm.

I Love A Fool.

You Ruo and Tang Bao immediately burst out laughing again, “It wasn’t you who wrote it?”

“Of course not. No matter what I do, it won’t wash off. Every time I asked father what it means, he just laughed, fell to the ground and kept praising that someone was great. I don’t understand it at all.”

“It is quite strange.”

“Exactly but also very interesting too. Could it really be that I will like a fool in the future?”

Tang Bao laughed, “As long as you like him, whether he’s a fool or not, it does not matter!”

“You’re right. Tang Bao, have you found the one already?”

Tang Bao did not shy away but nodded her head, laughing loudly as she declared: “I like Teacher Luo! I couldn’t believe that he knows I don’t like to eat meat but vegetables. A few days ago he even bought me jam and taught me papercutting (Jianzhi).”

You Ruo could not understand what Tang Bao was saying but Hua Qian Gu sympathetically nodded, “I just want my future husband to not criticize my weight and treats my father well. As long as he won’t stop me from eating, even if he may be a fool, it’s still okay with me.”

Chapter 2 - Taking Chances

Hua Qian Gu angrily locked herself in her room and refused to have dinner. Night arrived and Bai Zi Hua eventually showed up in her room. Hua Qian Gu felt even more miserable knowing the fact she could not escape from his grasp. Locking the door won’t do, beating him up won’t do, running away won’t do and no matter how hard she tries, she could not see him.

She wrapped herself in the blanket from head to toe and turned her back to Bai Zi Hua. Sometime later, she could not hear any movements so she curiously lowered the blanket a little to listen. Suddenly she heard the rustling sounds of undressing a robe. Her face burning red; she mumbled under her breath that using the ‘beauty’ trick to make her accept the bet won’t work on her.

Bai Zi Hua stripped off his robe and laid down next to Hua Qian Gu without saying a word. Hua Qian Gu could not restrain herself and slowly wriggled towards him like how Tang Bao would wriggle. Her legs covered him like a blanket and her body wrapped around him. She had no choice but to act this way.

They had been sleeping in different rooms for too long already. Initially, they slept in separate beds but by the end Bai Zi Hua even moved into the next room. She could not accept this, so every night she would cause a loud noise or cry her eyes out to force Bai Zi Hua to come over to her room. He would stay with her and wait until she falls asleep but still he would not sleep with her. Slowly she found her actions to be meaningless. It was rare that he would take the initiative to climb in her bed tonight. Of course she’s not stupid not to take advantage of this.

As per her habit, she climbed onto Bai Zi Hua and placed her pointy chin on his chest. Her small hands searched for his, all parts of her body were closely attached to his body. Her upset, grumpy mood only now began to subside.

“Xiao Gu, junior sect uncle will accompany you in the mortal realm, he will be disguising as your father to look after you.”

Hua Qian Gu was suddenly reminded of the bet, angrily turned around and faced her back to him again, “I told you already: I’m, not, going.”

“Soon you’d be able to see. It’s only 15 years, teacher will come pick you up then…”

Bai Zi Hua hugged her from behind, his right hand gently laid on her eyes.

Hua Qian Gu was so angry that she grit her teeth as she said, “Then I’ll just be blind forever.”

“Xiao Gu!” Bai Zi Hua scolded.

Hua Qian Gu pouted, “You have the heart to be away from me for that long?”

Bai Zi Hua froze for a moment and then said, “I do.”

“You’re not afraid that I might be seduced by someone else?” Hua Qian Gu asked angrily.

“I’m not afraid.”

Hua Qian Gu could not understand if he meant that it is okay for her to be seduced by someone else or he believes that she won’t be seduced by someone else. How is there anyone who allows their lover to do this? It’s really intolerable!

“Fine! I’ll play! I’ll do this bet! And might as well just start tomorrow! By then don’t you regret it!”

Hua Qian Gu crawled out of bed and huffily ran outside.

Bai Zi Hua watched as she slightly staggered her way out and his eyes showed even more determination. He knows that Hua Qian Gu had been upset with him lately, blaming him for being nonchalant with her. However, to cultivate Immortality requires a tranquil heart, he had to focus all his strength to cultivate to a higher level and use it to restore her soul. All her life she had to suffer so much because of him. No matter what, he wants her to be healthy in front of him, to be able to see him, to see everything.

Hua Qian Gu paced back and forth in You Ruo’s room as You Ruo picked up the ink brush and teased Tang Bao with it.

“Teacher, so you’ve agreed to the bet.”

Hua Qian Gu angrily stomped her feet, “He had agreed to it already, so my refusal will have no effect. At the end I have to participate anyway. Might as well just get it over and done with.”

It’s normal that she would be angry now, but the thing that she’s worried about most is not whether to bet or not to bet, but what she can do to win the bet. If the person she likes turns out not to be Bai Zi Hua then it will a big problem.

“Why does teacher not have any confidence? Wasn’t it during the Immortal Feast at Yao Chi that you fell head over heels in love at first sight with Zun Shang?”

“Back then I was young and naive. I was seduced by his beauty. This time we’re in the mortal realm where they can only use a normal appearance, how the hell am I supposed to distinguish them apart? Besides even you know how Bai Zi Hua is, always cold like ice and doesn’t like to talk. Dong Fang just has to smile and he would cause so much heartache. It’s obvious they are bullying me!”

You Ruo giggled, “It’s only been half a day and the news has spread across the Immortal realm. I heard that there are a lot of people who will be participating in this bet. Besides Sha Qian Mo and Immortal Mo Bing, there are a lot of people who secretly admired you or have a grudge against Zun Shang. There are also those who are free and have nothing to do who are also joining. I also just registered myself. Obviously even Tang Bao, Huo Xi and Shi Yi will also be participating. I wanted to use the image I have now, but Chang Liu’s disciples thought I might reveal everything by then, so I would probably have my memory temporarily erased as well.”

Hua Qian Gu felt her head spinning, why is this bet becoming the topic of the town and that she’s turned into a bone that everyone is vying for?

“No! We have to find a way to definitely win this!”

“You cannot cheat, Dong Fang Yu Qing has invited the Southern Dipper Immortal and the Northern Dipper Immortal to closely monitor you for 24 hours. If there’s anyone who tells you the truth, whether it be accidental or secretly guiding you to the truth, they will be struck by lightning.”

“….”

Hua Qian Gu could not speak. Why are there so many obstacles?

“Now the ones who are not participating are placing bets and guessing who the winner will be. Everyone’s quite excited!”

Hua Qian Gu grit her teeth in annoyance, suddenly she thought of something, “Will they change their names once they come down to the mortal realm?”

“A lot of people will be participating in this bet, Ru Zun and Qing Liu will act as supporting characters. As for others who want to impress Teacher like Dong Fang Yu Qing and Zun Shang, they won’t have their memories erased but they’re not allowed to speak the truth to you. They’re also not allowed to use their actual appearance to seduce you. As there are just too many people to account for, for convenience and to prevent any cheaters, everybody can keep their own name, this won’t affect the results of the bet.”

“Then that’s perfect.” Hua Qian Gu hit the table, “Give me the ink brush.”

You Ruo passed the ink brush in her hands to her teacher, “What do you want to do?”

“Quick, help me write a few words. Use your magic to write “I love Bai Zi Hua’ on my arm. That way when I descend to the mortal realm I would be able to see it. If I look at it from young, it should influence my choices in the future. I’ll wait 15 years later and if Bai Zi Hua actually appears then I will focus on him only, that way it’ll be easier to love him.”

You Ruo happily clapped her hands, “Secretly giving yourself a hint, teacher is very smart!”

The bet begins the next afternoon. Bai Zi Hua and she will be separated for 15 years and during this time she will be living with Sheng Xiao Mo in the mortal realm. No one was allowed to find them or even spy on them. All contact must be cut to prevent anyone from starting earlier or secretly guiding her.

Hua Qian Gu still resented Bai Zi Hua and even though she did not want to go, she did not linger any longer. It was almost time to leave, at the end she was not able to resist and ran to Bai Zi Hua’s room to find that he was not there. Could he have gone to the Heavenly Immortal Pool already?

“Gu Tou.” Someone called her from behind. It was Dong Fang Yu Qing.

Hua Qian Gu was extremely angry at him. There were so many things she wanted to ask him but Dong Fang Yu Qing took one step forward and placed his index finger on her lips.

“Don’t ask why, I will explain everything to you later. Be good, open your mouth.”

She automatically opened her mouth and Dong Fang Yu Qing threw something inside.

“What did you give me?”

“Health supplements.” Dong Fang Yu Qing laughed as his hands brushed lightly over where she wrote the name ‘Bai Zi Hua’.

“I’ll take you to the Heavenly Immortal Pool, everyone is already there waiting.”

Dong Fang Yu Qing did not respond to any of Hua Qian Gu’s questions the whole way there.

From the Nine Heavens to the Heavenly Immortal Pool, this is the road where Immortals would take if they were banished to the mortal realm or descend to the mortal realm through reincarnation. Hua Qian Gu knew that if she was to say anything it would be useless at this point, but she could not help feeling doubt and fear inside.

Teacher…

She bit her lower lip and did not say a word. She pushed away Bai Zi Hua’s guiding hand and ignoring everyone, she angrily jumped into the Heavenly Immortal Pool. When she fell through, her body became smaller and smaller. In a few moments, she had turned into a little child. When she became a baby, Sheng Xiao Mo swung his sleeves up and scooped the baby back in his arms. This method allows her to avoid the cycle of reincarnation and other complicated matters.

Bai Zi Hua stepped forward and pinched Hua Qian Gu’s little baby cheeks. In this state, she was able to see. She curiously observed Bai Zi Hua and then opened her mouth and bit his finger.

Bai Zi Hua’s lips curved upwards, in a low voice he said, “Take good care of her.”

Sheng Xiao Mo looked at the adorable baby whose hands and feet were waving wildly, he laughed, “Don’t worry and leave her to me. I’ll see you in 15 years.”

Then he left everybody and took Hua Qian Gu down to the mortal realm.

****

In a blink of an eye, it had already been 15 years. Sheng Xiao Mo not only regretted his spontaneous actions but also regretted inviting trouble onto himself. Taking care of a baby is not an easy task at all. Besides, this bet had too many rules, unless it’s a matter of life and death, no one was allowed to use their magic.

He and Hua Qian Gu have lived in many places since they never ran out of money. It is not every day that Sheng Xiao Mo was able to descend to the mortal realm, so obviously he wanted to tour the whole place. No one broke the rules to disturb them, everything went according to plan, only there was one thing.

….Hua Qian Gu had turned into a fat pig.

Sheng Xiao Mo cried without shedding any tears. He doesn’t even know why she turned out that way. Before he used to think that for babies to grow up faster, it is normal to eat like that. But then he realised something was strange, Hua Qian Gu had turned into a piglet and her figure was two times larger than kids her age. Her relationship with food can be quite a shock for others. She’s never full and would always feel hungry. Her mouth would never stop working.

Now 15 years have passed and the bet is starting soon. For everyone’s convenience, the bet will take place at a school in Hangzhou. All the participants will be acting the role of students and teachers. It is anyone’s guess who will be able to steal this teenager’s heart.

But when they see Hua Qian Gu’s current state, probably about a half of the participants will back out, right? *Cries* Sheng Xiao Mo thinks he’ll definitely have to accept death this time.

Chapter 1 - Life Is Like A Dream

In the middle of the night, a white figure sneaked into the kitchen and started to rummage around the area. Searching through the vegetables, the rice container…ransacked every corner of the kitchen but still the white figure came up empty handed.

“Where could it be, where could it be..?”

Muttering aloud in a clear voice with a touch of childlike innocence, like the sound of shattered jade, who else could it be but Hua Qian Gu?

However, if one was to see her now one was bound to not recognize her, it’s really…Finding nothing in the kitchen she decided to climb the wall to escape. Breathing heavily, she inserted two bricks by the corner, gripped the wall and then kicked with all her might, but still she could not climb up.

Haizz, she retreated to her room in defeat. Softly opening the door with her foot, Hua Qian Gu noticed the person on the bed with his back turned to her was sound asleep. His long black hair flowing down his back like a waterfall.

Hua Qian Gu gently walked towards the front of the bed and slightly angled her neck. Undoubtedly, she could glimpse a tightly wrapped box at the front of the bed. Hua Qian Gu became extremely excited.

With her left hand placed on the edge of the bed, her right hand carefully reached out to the box.

Finally she held the box in her hands. She was thrilled, when suddenly a voice coldly called out, “Xiao Gu.”

Trembling with fear, the box slipped out of her hands and landed on top of the other person’s head with a ‘thud!’

“Ouch!” The person on the bed yelped from the sudden pain, holding his injured head. He looked at her angrily, indeed this was Ru Zun, Sheng Xiao Mo.

Startled, Hua Qian Gu quickly rushed forward and rubbed on his injury to ease the pain, “Father, are you alright?” she asked worriedly.

“Of course not! You unfilial daughter, you wanted to murder your father just for a few steamed buns?!” Sheng Xiao Mo angrily accused.

A dark shadow casted down on Hua Qian Gu’s face. She looked like she was attending a funeral. Grabbing onto his sleeve she whined, “But father, I’m hungry…”

“Learn to tolerate it! If you’re hungry then go to sleep!”

“But I’m so hungry that I can’t go to sleep…” Hua Qian Gu pursed her lips and looked at him pitifully.

“If you can’t sleep then go find something else to do. Heat the water, chop firewood, wipe the table or take out the trash. Ah, quickly go wash the clothes for me, be good.”

“But I don’t have any energy at all.” Hua Qian Gu felt like dying and promptly collapsed on the bed. Sheng Xiao Mo was immediately suffocated due to her weight on him and tried his best to kick her off the bed. Hua Qian Gu did not get up and continued to lay on the floor, crying loudly.

“I’m hungry, hungry, hungry, hungry, hungry! I want to eat steamed buns, steamed buns, steamed buns, buns, buns, buns, buns…!”

She tossed and turned a few dozen times, eventually dirtying her cotton flower printed dress. Sheng Xiao Mo watched as Hua Qian Gu whined on the floor, not knowing whether to laugh or to cry. What he saw in front of him was a ball rolling around. Hua Qian Gu had gained so much weight that her neck became invisible and yet she still insisted on eating more steamed buns.

“No! You’ll be attending school in less than a month. This time I must make you diet successfully.”

With tears in her eyes, Hua Qian Gu grabbed his leg and swayed violently in protest, “I don’t want to diet! I don’t want to go to school!”

It’s all because of that weird school! Before she was able to eat happily every day, going from village to village and without a care. Now, her father forced her to diet, imprisoned her in her own home, and not leaving her side for even a second to monitor her meals. To control her insatiable hunger, Sheng Xiao Mo also sacrificed his own diet and only ate steamed buns with her every day. Only thing is, Hua Qian Gu can only have 1 steamed bun a day while Sheng Xiao Mo was allowed to have 9 steamed buns a day. Oh Heavens, it is so unfair!

Sheng Xiao Mo raised his hand at her, “You must go to school! I’ve toiled and raised you for the past 15 years just to see this day! You dare not go?!”

Haizz, all of this happened due to his kindness. Every time he saw tears streaming down her face, he had to give up, accept defeat and let her eat. It’s just he couldn’t believe that his promise of 15 years had finally arrived and she had blown up like a ball. Hua Qian Gu was not the same slender cute girl of the past. How is he going to explain the situation to his second senior brother? What if Dong Fang Yu Qing and Sha Qian Mo sees her now? It’ll be a miracle if he comes out of this alive. Heaven take pity on him, why did he stupidly agree to take on this heavily burdened task? Still it was too late for him to regret now…

Sheng Xiao Mo looked miserably at the meatball on the floor and let out a long sigh. All of this came about due to a bet made 15 years ago.

***


“Trouble! Trouble!” A disciple carrying a temple bell hurriedly ran towards the pavilion located at the back of Chang Liu Mountain.

Mo Yan and You Ruo was playing a game of chess in the pavilion. In order for You Ruo to retire from her sect leader role of Chang Liu, the condition was to beat Mo Yan in 3 games of chess. To quickly rid her of the hardships of being sect leader, You Ruo would challenge Mo Yan to a game whenever she’s free. Though her skills have improved greatly and at an impressive speed, it was still not enough to beat Mo Yan.

This time they were enjoying a game of chess when they were disturbed by the student. “What trouble are you talking about?!” Mo Yan asked annoyed.

He looked up from the chess board and You Ruo quickly took the chance to swipe 2 pieces away, satisfied.

“Shi Zun! There’s trouble at the Immortal Sword Assembly. It was going smoothly when suddenly the leader of Yi Xiu Ge* stormed through and brought in a lot of people. Our disciples were unable to stop them…”

*Yi Xiu Ge = Pavilion of Strange Decay

You Ruo jumped up from hearing the news. “Dong Fang Yu Qing! He reincarnated already!” She did some calculations with her fingers and figured something was not right. Her teacher’s recovery of her senses hadn’t been 10 years yet. If Dong Fang Yu Qing had indeed reincarnated he would only be about 10 years old. How was he able to come so early? Ignoring the chess game in front of her, You Ruo quickly headed towards Chang Liu’s main square, completely forgetting her status as the sect leader.

“There’s no peace around here!” Mo Yan cried out as he followed after her.

The main square was bustling with excitement but now it is eerily calm and quiet. This was the annual Immortal Sword Assembly where Immortals gathered together to compare their skills. Suddenly a man named Dong Fang Yu Qing charged in and interrupted the qualifying round.

Dong Fang Yu Qing was the one who helped Hua Qian Gu in collecting the Instruments of the Gods at Mount Tai Bai. He also sacrificed himself in protecting her at the great battle between Immortals and Demons - to this a lot of people had witnessed. In addition, with You Ruo’s and Huo Xi’s talent for gossip that fuelled this love triangle tale (perhaps even a love square), this story had been messily retold again and again; bringing people to tears and becoming well-known in the Immortal realm.

And now Dong Fang Yu Qing dared to stage a huge scene marking his return. Could it be that he wanted to come and take Hua Qian Gu away? All the Immortals and their disciples tried to guess his motives while eagerly looking forward to the events unfolding before them.

Dong Fang Yu Qing did not come alone. He also brought 18 of his minions who all wore demon masks. Their actions were extremely weird like they were being controlled by a spell. Holding a fan in his hand and the same unchanging smile, if anyone was to look at him they would find it hard to contain themselves and wishing they could be closer to him.

Dong Fang Yu Qing smiled as he surveyed everybody in one circle and then he stared at Bai Zi Hua who was sitting at the very top. To Bai Zi Hua’s right was someone who both observed the Immortal Sword Assembly and snoring at the same time. Unlike You Ruo who dared to hide away from today’s events, this person was rubbing her tired eyes and yawning. Indeed this was the Hua Qian Gu whom he was missing day and night.

“Dong Fang?” Hearing the murmurs of everybody around her, Hua Qian Gu knew that Dong Fang Yu Qing have arrived. She immediately stood up and hurriedly tried to locate him but she couldn’t hear Dong Fang Yu Qing’s voice so she was unable to pinpoint his exact location, not to mention that her eyes could not see him.

Hua Qian Gu still could not see.

Nonetheless, she was able to hear and speak now. Her speed of recovery have exceeded Dong Fang Yu Qing’s expectations. He wondered what Bai Zi Hua have done through all these years to help Hua Qian Gu recover at lightning speed. Yet, he knows that her eyesight is a different matter. If she wants to see again then her spirit must be restored completely, which means it will take at least another 40 years.

With Dong Fang Yu Qing’s reappearance, Hua Qian Gu felt happy and also confused. Her feelings in disarray, she hurriedly head down to meet him but was immediately stopped from making any movements by Bai Zi Hua. Tang Bao crawled on Hua Qian Gu’s head and snickered. Tang Bao is a Ling Chong* from Yi Xiu Ge and would always be a little spy for Dong Fang Yu Qing. Obviously they have planned this from the beginning and Tang Bao knew that Dong Fang Yu Qing would be coming.

*Ling Chong = Spirit Bug

“Yi Xiu Jun have suddenly graced us with your presence, I wonder what the matter is?” Bai Zi Hua asked as he gazed at Dong Fang Yu Qing like he is seeing through him rather than at him.

Unlike Dong Fang Yu Qing who have not changed in appearance even if he had reincarnated, Bai Zi Hua seemed to be more strict and distant than before. He was like the clouds in the sky, unable to reach but now, even if you were able to reach the clouds it will evaporate in your hands. Dong Fang Yu Qing does not care what cultivation level Bai Zi Hua have achieved already but he was just curious about one thing: was this the look of someone who was married?

Hua Qian Gu’s worry grew excessively but she was stopped by everyone including Bai Zi Hua so she had to resort to sitting still in her seat. If Dong Fang already arrived then why isn’t he talking to her? His actions have always been secretive, always choosing to act alone. Why did he openly bring so many people here to Chang Liu during the Immortal Sword Assembly?

Dong Fang Yu Qing folded his fan and then pointed at the two people who was about to duel in the main square, “I’ve heard of the infamous Immortal Sword Assembly for a while now. This time I especially brought my disciples from Yi Xiu Ge to come and participate. I wonder if this is alright with everyone?”

There were lots of noises from the crowd as people were whispering amongst themselves trying to guess if Dong Fang Yu Qing was really there to participate or if there was another purpose for his presence today.

Bai Zi Hua and Sheng Xiao Mo looked at each other. The Immortal Sword Assembly was similar to the Martial Arts Competition in the mortal realm. As long as they are not from the evil sect then anyone is allowed to participate. Yi Xiu Ge may be an unorthodox place but they are not to be underestimated. They also had credit in retrieving the Instruments of the Gods at Mount Tai Bai. Evil or good cannot be determined in this instance.

Seeing Bai Zi Hua nodding in agreement Sheng Xiao Mo said, “Of course...“

“Of course not!” Mo Yan interrupted as he and You Ruo flew down to the main square together. Mo Yan pointed at Dong Fang Yu Qing and said, “You do not have an invitation to come here. It is already impolite that you had stormed into Chang Liu Mountain without sending a messenger announcing your arrival. Now the Immortal Sword Assembly has begun and the drawing of the match is done. If you really want to participate then please come early again next time.”

Dong Fang Yu Qing looked as if he had anticipated this and smiled, “No need, my main purpose is to officially challenge Chang Liu’s Zun Shang* for a round.”

*Zun Shang = Honorable One = Bai Zi Hua

The crowd audibly voiced their excitement at the sudden events. So it is a case of the love rival arriving at the door and officially announcing a challenge. In the past, both Sha Qian Mo and Dou Lan Gan had raised their swords at Bai Zi Hua for Hua Qian Gu. Only Dong Fang Yu Qing watched on with silent indifference so no one actually knows how powerful he really is. Unexpectedly today, Dong Fang Yu Qing had come to challenge Bai Zi Hua. All the disciples watched on in anticipation wondering how Bai Zi Hua will reply. It’s quite an insolent challenge but based on Bai Zi Hua’s personality, he will not agree to it. However, Dong Fang Yu Qing is a man known for his crafty mind and full of cunning ideas, what is he up to exactly?

As expected, Bai Zi Hua replied, “The Immortal Sword Assembly was set up to allow the disciples to compete and exchange skills with each other. I am afraid that I cannot accept this challenge of yours.”

Dong Fang Yu Qing thought for a while and said, “Bai Zi Hua, don’t you think that our feud has gone on for too long already? You’ve took the position of Gu Tou’s teacher, they say that ‘the closer you are the easier it is’…don’t you think that this is quite unfair for everybody else?”

Bai Zi Hua continued to stare at him.

“Take me for example or Sha Qian Mo or Meng Xuan Lang or even Immortal Mo Bing…”

The name ‘Mo Bing’ just left Dong Fang’s lips and it caused Bai Zi Hua to unwittingly raise his eyebrows.

“I am certain that you know Xiao Gu and I have already married.”

Hua Qian Gu cannot see but she could sense that the atmosphere was beginning to get more tense and strange. One can cut the tension with a knife. She wanted to stop them but she could not haphazardly interrupt when everyone else is there. With the position she is in now, words are not enough. What does Dong Fang want to do? She suddenly felt that her magic have disappeared and she was unable to convey the question to him using her inner strength.

“I’m not here to take Gu Tou away from you. I know she only has you in her heart, that’s why in the past I backed out and did not pursue Gu Tou. This time I’ve come to see who actually is the winner and loser amongst us. I want to challenge you. Whether I win or lose, I am willing to treat Gu Tou’s eyes within 16 years. Both of you will still be the loveliest Immortal couple in front of everybody. Even if I’m lucky to have won, I still do not want anything in return. I will leave and not bother you anymore.”

More whispers from the spectators arose. Not want anything in return even if he wins? Dong Fang Yu Qing only wants to challenge his love rival? But no matter how powerful he is, how could Dong Fang Yu Qing beat Chang Liu’s Zun Shang? Could it be that it’s only an excuse to treat Hua Qian Gu’s eyes? Strange, it is not necessary to do so.

Everybody in the Immortal realm knows that using 16 years to treat Hua Qian Gu’s eyesight is an attractive condition. This is because for the past 10 years, Bai Zi Hua went to all the six realms to think of all methods of treatment. There was also Immortal Mo Bing, Sha Qian Mo, Dou Lan Gan and other Immortals from Heaven who contributed greatly to Hua Qian Gu’s incredible speedy recovery. Everybody knows that whoever can lend a helping hand to treat Hua Qian Gu’s eyesight will get lots of benefits from Chang Liu and even from Sha Qian Mo’s sect. That’s why they all sent their rarest medicinal herbs over. However, her eyesight requires all her souls to be gathered and complete. No matter how much effort is used, it would take at least another 40 more years for her full recovery. Now Dong Fang Yu Qing have come forward saying that he could treat her eyes within 16 years, this is something that all of the six realms cannot do.

Indeed Bai Zi Hua went silent like he was considering the deal.

Mo Yan furrowed his brows. He also knows that this is an attractive condition and considering how important Hua Qian Gu is to Bai Zi Hua, he will readily agree to any challenge even more ridiculous than this.

Hua Qian Gu felt something was not right and worriedly pulled on Bai Zi Hua’s sleeve. She does not want to see her teacher and Dong Fang fight with each other.

Bai Zi Hua looked at Dong Fang Yu Qing’s honest but actually devious eyes. He knows that if he doesn’t agree to this challenge, Dong Fang Yu Qing would still treat Hua Qian Gu’s eyes if he had found a way. But if Dong Fang Yu Qing have already set the condition then how could he not accept it? He really hoped that Xiao Gu’s eyes could be treated as soon as possible so that she could see him. He does not want to wait for a dozen more years and neither does he want to owe Dong Fang Yu Qing any favours. So at the end, he could only agree.

Everybody drew in a deep breath as Bai Zi Hua slowly raised his hands out as if he seemingly accepted, “Please.”

“Teacher!” Hua Qian Gu cried out anxiously. From her understanding of Dong Fang, this is definitely not a normal challenge between metal swords.

“Wait.” Dong Fang Yu Qing opened his fan and waved it, “I just said I want to challenge you for a round not that I want to fight with you. I’m only a mere mortal, how can I go up against Chang Liu’s Zun Shang? Is it not like a big tree bullying a small tree?”

“What do you want exactly?” Mo Yan dared to ask.

Dong Fang Yu Qing’s expression turned serious, “Bai Zi Hua, I want to make a bet with you for a period of 16 years. Back when Gu Tou died by your hands...I want to bet on when she said she will never love you again!”

Everyone was shocked at what they just heard. Not only Hua Qian Gu but also Mo Yan and his group was shocked. Even Bai Zi Hua had turned deathly pale.

When Hua Qian Gu said those words, a lot of people were present. No one could ever forget Bai Zi Hua’s crazy demeanour at that time.

“Well? You don’t dare to take on the bet with me? Rightly so, when Gu Tou had lost her memory and became a retarded child, you’ve already lost. She did not love you, she wanted to leave you for me, but you forced her to stay by your side. Finally she was able to regain her memories and returned to the same Hua Qian Gu who loved you. There’s no other way, she was always a stubborn person.” There appears to be a smile at the corner of Dong Fang Yu Qing’s eyes as he watched Bai Zi Hua’s face turned even paler. Dong Fang knew he had touched a sore spot.

Everybody present could tell that Bai Zi Hua was a bit unstable, the atmosphere became icy cold and they cautiously retreated a few steps.

“If it wasn’t for you who deemed yourself a high being and always staying by Gu Tou’s side, who wins or loses is still undetermined. You dare to bet with me?” Then Dong Fang Yu Qing proceeded to explain the rules of the bet. In short, he wants Hua Qian Gu to return to the mortal realm, in a state of her memories temporarily erased to find out who she will love: Bai Zi Hua, Dong Fang Yu Qing, Sha Qian Mo or anyone else who wants to participate in this bet.

The more Dong Fang Yu Qing explains, the more the crowd raised their brows and the more fear Hua Qian Gu felt. She gripped Bai Zi Hua’s hand tightly.

“The bet ends when Gu Tou says the name of the person she loves. At that instant, Gu Tou’s memories will naturally return. Whether the name she calls out is Chang Liu’s Zun Shang or not, I believe she will continue to stay by your side like before. She will also regain her eyesight and magic. Everything will return back to normal. You’ve got nothing to lose, right?” Dong Fang Yu Qing asked as he stared at Bai Zi Hua.

“No! What kind of bet is this? Such a child’s game!” Mo Yan angrily shouted. Sheng Xiao Mo sat up, his eyes shining brightly.

Everybody at the Immortal Sword Assembly have finally understood Dong Fang Yu Qing’s main purpose in coming today. He wanted to have a fair chance in vying for Hua Qian Gu’s affections and so he could only use this method. It may seem that Bai Zi Hua would have nothing to lose in this bet, but if she really does do as she says and not love him anymore but someone else, then no matter how short or deep that love may be, she will still continue to stay by Bai Zi Hua’s side. But between them two, it will cause a rift in their relationship that can never be mended. The bet has not begun but Bai Zi Hua seemed to have already lost. This proposal from Dong Fang Yu Qing was really a cruel move.

While everybody could see the evil intentions behind those eyes of Dong Fang Yu Qing, Bai Zi Hua only contemplated for two seconds and calmly said, “I will bet with you.”

Everybody was surprised by the answer. Dong Fang Yu Qing smiled knowingly like he knew it in the first place.

Hua Qian Gu thought angrily, ‘Teacher has agreed? Are you kidding me?’ She stood up in protest, “I don’t want to!”

Both of them did this on purpose! How dare they bet on her feelings? What does it got to do with them who she likes or dislikes? She would rather continue to be blind than participate in this bet. If her amnesia self was to go to the mortal realm and in her state of confusion came to really like somebody else, then what? How is she supposed to face her teacher ever again?!

“Gu tou, you don’t want to? I thought you have a lot of confidence in your feelings, right?” Dong Fang covered his smile with his fan.

Bai Zi Hua looked at her.

“I – I – I of course am confident…” Her face turned bright red. What does Dong Fang want exactly? It’s not exactly a big matter neither is it a small matter. Still, feelings cannot be played around.

“If you feel that in any circumstances you can still love Bai Zi Hua then bet with me. Think of it as a child’s game. Besides when you lose your memories in the mortal realm, your soul will be restored and you’re able to see again immediately. After 16 years, your eyesight will be restored and you don’t have to suffer in the dark anymore.”

“No! I’m not agreeing to this!” Hua Qian Gu declared, raising her arms. She refuses to be a part of this bet of theirs. She still felt scared the last time she forgot her memories. She really did want to leave her teacher and go with Dong Fang. If she was to commit a wrong again then what will she do? The stupid child from before was also raised by teacher, but this time according to Dong Fang Yu Qing’s rules, they can only meet 15 years later. Teacher and everyone else are also not allowed to use their real faces when they are in the mortal realm. How is she supposed to figure out who is Bai Zi Hua and love him? She’s not at ease for one bit. Truthfully, this bet may not affect the others, but at the end the one who loses might just be her.

“Xiao Gu, don’t be afraid.” Bai Zi Hua patted her head to comfort her.

Hua Qian Gu cannot understand where Bai Zi Hua’s confidence is coming from. How could he risk everything even if it meant he might lose her? She turned to Bai Zi Hua unable to see his face.

Day by day, it was getting harder for her to see and harder for her to understand him. They’ve been married for so long already but he still haven’t touched her. His excuse is that they shouldn’t do it when she still couldn’t see. He wanted to wait until her eyesight fully recovers. For the past few years, he’s been cultivating every day and slowly he’s beginning to act nonchalant with her as well.

The words “if I could go back, I will not love you again” was said in the heat of the moment when she was at her lowest point in her life, she hadn’t meant it. She didn’t know that Bai Zi Hua had taken it seriously. Or is it because he now hates taking care of a blind person like her now?

He would rather leave her for 15 years, risk the possibility of losing her, just to participate in this bet? If her words stayed true as Dong Fang Yu Qing says then whatever her choices at the end will be, as long as her memory recovers she will still continue to stay by his side. But does he know that her choice will cause a rift in their relationship? Does he not care about these things?

In this world, the things you cannot bet on, the things that you could easily lose, are feelings.

“I don’t care! I’m not agreeing to this! If you all want to bet then do whatever you want. I’m not playing!” Hua Qian Gu angrily turned around and walked away. Unfortunately, she was blind and unstable, causing her to almost fall in her haste. You Ruo quickly got hold of her. Pain flashed through Bai Zi Hua’s eyes.

With the protagonist having already left, the rest of the people stayed behind and looked around in bewilderment. They could not blame Hua Qian Gu, who was usually of a gentle nature, to not be infuriated with this situation.

Dong Fang Yu Qing finalized the bet with Bai Zi Hua. “If you have already agreed to this bet then all the Immortals can be witnesses. As for Gu Tou, I believe you will have your way of convincing her.”

Sheng Xiao Mo hit the table’s surface and asked, “You just have to erase Hua Qian Gu’s memory, why do we have to wait for 15 years?”

Dong Fang Yu Qing smiled, “I believe everyone wants to see an honest Hua Qian Gu who does not carry any fake memories. Besides, I need time to prepare the antidote to treat her eyesight. But of course, the main important reason is that how could my 10 year old self be able to participate in this bet? You have to give me some time! Ha ha…”

Everybody was surprised at this revelation. Not one was able to detect Dong Fang Yu Qing’s illusion. So he had reincarnated however he still was 10 years old. He still had the image of a young child so of course he doesn’t want to compete in this bet with the way he is now.

Dong Fang Yu Qing took his minions from Yi Xiu Ge away and the Immortal Sword Assembly resumed. However, everybody was not in the mood to watch anymore. The Immortal Sword Assembly was an annual event, but something as exciting as this had not happened in the six realms for a long time already.
