Lady Su's Revenge - Chapter 460
As Ling Qinglan murmured, he looked at Su Li, “You are her heir and should know all. I will tell you everything I know.”
Su Li had not pointed out Ling Qinglan’s misunderstanding and didn’t intend to point out even at this time.
By far, her ident.i.ty was no secret for only three people, besides Immortal Tea Plant and Su Yuanhai who were soul-controlled by her. Needless to say, Hua Yan was one of the three. As for Dongfang Wuxue and Yan Ziye, they pa.s.sed her test and were under control.
Therefore, she must remain cautious for Ling Qinglan and Yin Xue.
It was not a bad thing to be misunderstood as the heir of herself.
It seemed to be complicated, but it happened in a flash in Su Li’s mind. She glanced at the cloudless sky and said after withdrawing her gaze.
“Who planned to force my master into the Reincarnation Mirror back then?”
Ling Qinglan’s pupils shrunk slightly, but he was not surprised at Su Li’s question. He said in a serious tone, “I have also been investigating that. But I only found that it was related to a holy sect and didn’t get its name.”
“A holy sect.”
Su Li narrowed her eyes slightly, “There are too many holy sects in Qingshui Circle.”
“I am clear that a sect will not be simple if it is known as a holy sect.”
Ling Qinglan sighed slightly. Every word and gesture of Su Jiuzhou in front of him were remarkably similar to that of Su Li. He attributed the resemblance to the influence of the inheritance. But he unconsciously treated her as Su Li and showed respect like a subordinate to his master.
“After I left the Yin Family, I went to lots of great regions to investigate. But every holy sect has at least one person who pa.s.sed nature’s test, so it was difficult to investigate the happening back then.”
After Ling Qinglan finished, Su Li pondered for a moment and continued, “So, you were injured during that time?”
Ling Qinglan was slightly stunned. He touched the icy-cold crystal on his chest and nodded.
“After Mo came out from the Reincarnation Mirror, his strength skyrocketed, a half-step away from pa.s.sing nature’s test within just two hundred years.”
Yin Xue seemed to be calm and added in a m.u.f.fled voice, “The family had high hopes for him, but he stopped his practice at this time and confronted those holy sects. So, he was mistaken to be someone of soul deprivation.”
Su Li had heard this phrase for the first time and seemed to ask.
Yin Xue seemed to be stuck in the fear left by Su Li from the Reincarnation Mirror. She could not help but s.h.i.+ver as she met Su Li’s gaze. Then she said what she knew.
“After the Reincarnation Mirror shattered, many people returned Qingshui Circle, but they seemed to become completely different. After the return of their Life Rings, the memories of their souls returned as well. But their loyalty to their original families never came back. Your master…”
Yin Xue paused helplessly and said sincerely, “She was really very charming.”
As Ling Qinglan heard this, the memory flashed in his mind and an extremely faint smile was seen on his scarred face, “A tremendous change in temperament? I don’t think so. I have just gotten better.”
Yin Xue nodded helplessly. She was not disgusted by her brother’s change.
On the contrary, she was even glad to see that.
His brother, Yi Mo, grew up in the Yin Family and was trained as an executioner. He would never take the initiative to talk with her and was ruthless.
In just a few hundred years in the Reincarnation Mirror, her brother became humane again. Yin Xue was grateful for that, except the fear for Su Li.
However, it was bad news for the Yin Family that Yi Mo who was ruthless before became complex.
Su Li tilted her head, as if she was thinking.
She had figured out quite a few things. Leaving the Reincarnation Mirror alive and leaving deadly were two entirely different things.
The former took away all the emotions and memories and integrated them into the soul to dominate; the latter did not remember anything in the Reincarnation Mirror at all but took the practice methods and instincts acquired in it.
Ling Qinglan and Yin Xue should be the former, but Su Li was not very sure of that. So, she continued taking the tone of the heir of herself.
“It seems that you are not far from what I have investigated. I found out that a pract.i.tioner of Huashen Realm in the Su Family named Su Huanli has a history with her.”
Ling Qinglan nodded in agreement, “That’s why you lurked in the Su Family. Because you want to find out what happened.”
Su Li smiled sweetly, and her gaze towards Ling Qinglan became gentle, “It could not be better if you two join me.”
Ling Qinglan was tempted by Su Li’s invitation, because he already had a guilty conscience. It was the best way for him to join the investigation with Su Li’s heir.
However, a look of hesitation soon appeared on his face.
“We can’t stay anymore.”
Yin Xue looked regretted, “Su Jiuzhou, we understand very well what’s in your mind. But we’ll only get you in trouble if we stay.”
Su Li raised her eyebrows, “Because of the Yin Family?”
“Yes, but not exactly.”
Yin Xue hesitated and seemed to consider whether to tell Su Li the whole story. But when she saw Ling Qinglan cover his chest inadvertently all the time, she sighed and told all the story in the past.
“We were in a tight spot after Mo left the Yin Family. I followed him as well to stayed in this region.
At that time, Mo was extremely close to nature’s test, so the Su Family cozied up to him. Mo got information from the old ancestor of the Su Family and planned to leave for Ghost Region to investigate. I was worried and insisted on going with him, so my husband came with me as well. Later, Mo was ambushed and seriously injured. He risked his life to save me, but my husband…”
As Yin Xue spoke of this, tears emerged in her eyes and she choked with sobs, “My husband was an excellent man, but unfortunately I was not able to give him an heir.”
Su Li asked in a proper time. Yin Xue took a deep breath and composed herself, “She was adopted before I went into the Reincarnation Mirror. Due to the inconvenience of taking her into action, I put her in the Su Family. She showed her talent of being a cultivator and was held in great esteem. After Mo and I returned, Mo took the name of Ling Guang. The outside world thought Mo died in Ghost Region and didn’t doubt about him.”
Su Li was silent.
She still had questions in her heart, because she could smell a hint of the familiar pneuma of the soul from both Yan Ziye and Dongfang Wuxue.
However, both in front of her did not have that pneuma.
It was a question that she couldn’t ask.
Because she couldn’t explain why she was familiar with the pneuma. If she asked, her ident.i.ty as the heir of Su Li would be unfounded.
After quite a while, she raised her head, stared into Ling Qinglan’s eyes and asked, “Which holy sect did hurt you?”
Ling Qinglan was stunned. The face in his memory overlapped with the face of the young girl in front of him again. An absurd thought came to his mind.
It was impossible…
Ling Qinglan’s voice was low as if he were suppressing something.
“Han Sect, Ghost Region…”
As Yin Xue heard the name, her face became pale. She smiled bitterly and said, “Han Sect collected a lot of fragments of the Reincarnation Mirror, so Mo had an idea. However, the two Grand Elders in Han Sect has pa.s.sed nature’s test. We were lucky to escape alive.”
Hearing the fragments of the Reincarnation Mirror, Su Li turned to look at Ling Qinglan with a sharp gaze, “Your injury must be left by Han Sect. It’s similar to your injury in the Reincarnation Mirror.”
Ling Qinglan curled his lips slightly and asked, “Are there lots of memories about me that you get from the inheritance?”
Su Li smiled but did not reply. She continued, “Han Sect, as a holy sect, must have forgotten your willingness to revenge since you have faked your death for so long.”
Ling Qinglan changed his expression slightly, and stiffened his body which was relaxed just before, “What are you indicating?”
“You should be clear what I’m trying to say.”
Su Li sighed, while Yin Xue bewilderedly looked at them and had no idea why the atmosphere suddenly became tense.
“You’re very smart, but I can’t trust you completely.”
Ling Qinglan showed a cold face and shook his hands slightly. The two spiritual daggers appeared again. Yin Xue suddenly panicked.
Su Li, however, seemed not to see his movements. She lowered her eyes and said softly, “Do not cut your own throat. You have some fragments of the Reincarnation Mirror. Let’s make a deal.”
Ling Qinglan’s movements stalled, “What kind of deal?”
If he had other options, he would reasonably not take action, because he had seen Su Jiuzhou’s capability. With his current physical condition, the situation would be desperate for him only.
Besides, Yin Xue was still beside him. He had owed his sister so much.
Su Li pointed to Ling Qinglan’s chest and said, “If this ice crystal disappears, Han Sect will not be able to sense you. Am I right?”
“Right, but the ice toxin of Han Sect is not as simple as you thought.”
Ling Qinglan understood what she was planning, “This piece of ice toxin can not only make me traceable but also suppress my strength. Its structure is extremely complex. Even if you inherited your master’s realm of the medical circle, it would not be possible…”
As he was in the middle of his sentence, he saw that Su Li suddenly pointed out like lightning and a faint ray of lightning flashed.
Ling Qinglan was shocked to see that the ice crystal, which he had been fighting for nearly a thousand years, shattered into powder with a bang.
Yin Xue was surprised and pleased. She could not help but touch Ling Qinglan’s chest and couldn’t keep back her tears as she touched the hole.
White vapor rose from Ling Qinglan’s body. Without the suppression of the ice crystal, his pneuma was quickly restored. In a blink of an eye, most of his injuries were healed and the blood scabs kept falling off.
“How did you make it?”
He looked at Su Jiuzhou, who was sitting across from him, with a trace of disbelief in his eyes. What was that ray of lightning?
Although he saw it, he could not look into its nature.
This woman must have other adventures besides Su Li’s inheritance.
A person with great luck!
As this word came to Ling Qinglan’s mind, his body shook slightly.
The new daughter of luck?
Su Li shrugged and did not answer his question. Although the Divine Thunder of Earth was only a part of the Thunder of l.u.s.tration, it had the effect of the Thunder of l.u.s.tration to dispel the evil.
No matter how complex the structure of the ice toxin of the Ghost Region might be, it was just a crystal with ghost energy by its very nature.
It was enough to use a ray of the Thunder of l.u.s.tration to deal it!
“Juniors are to be respected.”
Ling Qinglan sighed while looking at Su Li. He took a pouch with the fragments out from his universe ring. Su Li showed a smile after taking and checking them.
At that moment—
