Mu Wanqing closed her eyes in resignation, but the imaginary fall did not happen. She opened her eyes in doubt and found the two of them standing on a platform protruding from the cliff wall. The mountains were often surrounded by rain and mist, so naturally no one knew that there was another mystery hidden here.
Realizing that she was in the arms of another man, Mu Wanqing quickly pushed Song Qingshu away, and awkwardly looked for something to say, “This is where you live?”
Reminiscing about the unique scent of the girl which resembled the distinct fragrance of orchids, a smile appeared at the corner of Song Qingshu’s mouth, “Yes. It’s going to rain, come with me.”
Mu Wanqing cautiously followed behind him. When she found the tombstone of the “Golden Serpent Gentleman”, she was startled, and her voice trembled, “Here… why is there a grave here?”
“What’s all the fuss about?” Song Qingshu glanced at her strangely, and nonchalantly said, “His grave is so fresh and refined, I am sure that this “Golden Serpent Gentleman” must have been a hermit expert.”
“Come in, no misfortune, no resentment.” Mu Wanqing read the writing on the wall and said with a strange expression, “From what it says, this senior seems to have left some martial arts secrets…”
“When I found this place, there were not even a few bird feathers here.” Song Qingshu said angrily, and handed the dry food in the parcel to Mu Wanqing.
Looking at the big pie in her hand, she hesitated to eat it. Out of her woman’s precaution, Mu Wanqing subconsciously worried that there might be questionable medicine in it. But then she thought, even when she had her acupuncture point sealed, this Little Fool didn’t do anything. So, she just raised it to her lips and started eating it bit by bit.
Alone and silent, Mu Wanqing felt very uncomfortable. She was unwilling to continue eating in silence, so she started asking one question after another, “Little Fool, what are you going to do tomorrow?”
“Searching for treasures.” Song Qingshu’s answer was completely beyond Mu Wanqing’s expectation.
“What kind of treasure do you want to search for?” Mu Wanqing looked at him in surprise.
“I heard that there are treasures on Mount Hua, so I came to search for treasures. I just found this place a few days ago.” Song Qingshu thought for a while and replied.
“Is the treasure you’re talking about martial arts secrets or gold and silver treasures?” Mu Wanqing recalled the scene in the cave, and suddenly realized.
“Can you eat those martial arts secrets or gold and silver treasures?” Song Qingshu said stupidly, “I’m here to look for my wife. I heard that there are fairies on Mount Hua. Although you are very beautiful, I still want to look for some again. See if I can find a more beautiful little fairy wife.”
Mu Wanqing gave him a silent glance, and was too lazy to pay attention to him, so she just closed her eyes and rested, holding the hilt of the sword tightly with her right hand, and quietly guarding.
After a long time, Mu Wanqing opened her eyes and saw that the other party was already lying on the ground and fell asleep, she couldn’t help but smile, and fell asleep with confidence.
When she woke up the next day, Mu Wanqing looked at the cliff that was several feet high, and felt a little troubled about how to get back up. Song Qingshu came to her, “Hey, leave it to me.”
As soon as he finished speaking, he naturally took hold of Mu Wanqing’s slender waist, and Mu Wanqing’s body stiffened, but she gradually softened. Song Qingshu hugged her, and using both hands and feet, began vigorously climbing up.
Originally, Mu Wanqing had always suspected that he was a martial arts master pretending to be dumb, but noticed that his climbing posture was terrible, like a monkey. So she suddenly smiled comfortably, thinking that he might have grown up in the mountains since childhood. And he learned these physical abilities from the mountain beasts.
Stepping on the flat ground, Mu Wanqing swiftly pushed Song Qingshu away as usual. She was originally planning to leave, but thinking that she didn’t have a place to go, and wondering what the treasure Song Qingshu was talking about, she followed him step by step.
Song Qingshu saw that she didn’t mean to leave, his eyes lit up, and he teased, “Wife, you really can’t bear to leave me.”
“If you talk more nonsense, I’ll shoot you with a poisoned arrow!” Mu Wanqing warned with a sullen eye. “You are not allowed to call me your wife in the future.”
“Okay, wife~” Song Qingshu agreed with a grin.
The two of them fought and made a ruckus all the way to Mount Hua of the Five Sacred Mountains.
Although Mount Hua Sect’s Qi Faction was a decent and upright sect in the past, their pool of talents were now withered, and it was not as powerful as the Sword Faction of the Chaoyang Peak. The two travelled all the way in while hiding their presence, and none of the Qi Faction disciples found them.
“Are you going to trespass there? I think that cliff is right in front of Mount Hua Sect.” Mu Wanqing looked at the steep mountain road in front of her, and hesitantly said.
“We will find the treasure there! Are you feeling scared, my wife?” Song Qingshu asked while winking his eyebrows.
“Huh, what is this girl afraid of!” Mu Wanqing was originally a reckless girl from the start. She was feeling a little hesitant due to the name of Mount Hua before, but when Song Qingshu provoked her, she didn’t care about it anymore.
The two walked through the long wooden steps, and finally came to the top of the Cogitation Cliff. The Cogitation Cliff had three sides, on one side was a mountain wall, and there was a cave on the mountain wall. This place seemed very deserted.
“The last one to visit here should have been Linghu Chong.” Song Qingshu thought, “Linghu Chong is quite good among the many protagonists. Although he has already learned the “Nine Swords of Dugu”, the “Five Sacred Mountain Sword Art” should remain in the cave intact.”
Song Qingshu had already figured out that he couldn’t compete with the original protagonists in terms of luck. Therefore, he had given up on acquiring all the unique skills of the original protagonists. However, there were still many martial arts in the original work that the protagonists had never monopolized, and the “Five Sacred Mountain Sword Art” was one of them.
“Little Fool, what do you do with a wooden sword all day long?” Mu Wanqing wondered very early on about the thin wooden sword on Song Qingshu’s back. With her knowledge, of course, she knew that it was possible to fight with a wooden sword. But, that required a higher realm of attainment in the way of the sword, so she purely thought it was just a toy.
“This husband doesn’t want to hurt my wife, so I disdained the use of sharp swords from a long time ago.” Song Qingshu looked intoxicated.
“Too lazy to care about your words.” Mu Wanqing had long become accustomed to his bragging hobbies in the past few days, so she didn’t even bother to give him a look of contempt.
Although Song Qingshu was quite sure of his speculation in his heart, he didn’t see those sword moves with his own eyes. So, everything was unknown. As soon as he entered the cave, he paid special attention to the traces on the wall, and soon found a faint crack on the wall behind a tree vine.
With a light palm strike, Song Qingshu knocked down the rock covering it and bent down to get in.
“Ah!” When she looked at the bones all over the floor, Mu Wanqing’s heart became tense, and she held the sword firmly in her hand.
“I thought it was some kind of treasure, but it turned out to be some crappy paintings.” Although Song Qingshu seemed disappointed, his eyes quickly swept across the various sword moves on the wall.
“You stupid ghost, this is clearly a superb sword technique.” Hearing his voice, Mu Wanqing looked up and saw the “Five Sacred Mountain Sword Art” technique on the wall, as well as a detailed description of various evasion techniques.
