On reaching the third floor, Qin Yi very naturally followed Lu Heng into his room. Seeing Lu Heng’s eyes sweeping over, he said in a positive tone, “We are legitimate husbands who has been certified by the Dao of Heaven.”


The corners of Ly Heng’s mouth were raised. “I just wanted to ask, haven’t we returned here to change our clothes, huh?”


Qin Yi looked down at his clothes, ragged and smeared with blood. He shrugged his shoulders. “All the clothes in your wardrobe are mine anyways.”


However, the successive high-intensity battles had exhausted Lu Heng and his companion. Once they entered the room, upon seeing the soft big bed, they took off their clothes lay down together in the soft big bed, and slept deeply for the whole day.


In his trance, Lu Heng had a dream, a very beautiful dream. In the familiar cold pool, the dreamer himself was intertwined with another man’s limbs, and the two couldn’t be differentiated. However, the cold pool water felt a little too warm, the feeling of touch from these limbs was too real, as if he was really being held in someone’s arms.


Lu Heng woke up.


He opened his eyes and found himself lying in the bathtub surrounded by warm water. Behind him was not a hard cold bathtub, but someone’s chest, and a pair of powerful arms held him tightly.


Lu Heng moved with some discomfort.


“Woke up?” Qin Yi’s voice came from behind.


“Why am I here?” Lu Heng asked.


“I think you’re as dirty as puff when he ran away for three days. You looked so pitiful, that I couldn’t help but wash you up. Come on, close your eyes.” Qin Yi reached out to grab a bottle of shampoo on a shelf beside him and formed bubbles on Lu Heng’s soft hair.


“Puff?” After closing his eyes, the touch became even more perceptible. Lu Heng felt the hand on his scalp was exerting just the right amount of strength. He was so comfortable that he almost wanted to sleep again.


“Well, it was a cat I raised when I was a child. It was very cute and furry, just like you.”


Lu Heng felt Qin Yi’s hand being retracted. After a moment, water started rushing down his scalp. Afraid that the water would flow into his eyes, Lu Heng tried to close his eyes tighter, even instinctively shrunk his neck.


Qin Yi chuckled softly: “You look more like it this way. It’s the same when Puff took a bath. He was terribly scared, but he used to obediently huddle into a ball and stayed still.”


A soft towel covered Lu Heng’s head.


Lu Heng frowned for a moment and said, “You like me because I am like your cat?”


“Pooh.” Qin Yi buried his face in Lu Heng’s neck and laughed, “I’m not a pervert.”


Lu Heng felt the other person’s shaking from his back and realized that what he had just said was indeed a bit mentally retarded. Seeing Qin Yi unable to stop laughing, he suddenly patted the surface of the water and splashed the water on the face of the person behind him.


“If it was because you’re like Puff, how could I want to do this to you?” Qin Yi’s right hand slowly sank into the water, and his left hand turned Lu Heng’s face with gentle force.


The room was filled with a scene of spring. [T/N: ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ]


The night sky was clear, and the cool night wind took away the heat in the house.


Lu Heng sat cross-legged on the bed, his face tinged with regret upon realizing that his morning exercise plan for the next day was disrupted.


Qin Yi gently pressed Lu Heng’s lower waist, and his palm slightly raised the temperature with fire abilities: “Is this too hot?”


“We wasted this opportunity by forgetting to use the dual cultivation method.” Lu Heng said.


Qin Yi was somewhat helpless: “Shixiong, this is not only for cultivation, but also for husband’s interest.”


However, Lu Heng did not take heed to his words, and put an end to the rising amorous feelings: “But now the effect of cultivation would be better than usual.”


After that, Lu Heng closed his eyes and began to cultivate.


What his chosen partner decided is what he would do. Qin Yi reached out and brushed the messy, curly hair of the man who had been totally immersed in his cultivation. He closed his eyes and crossed his legs and began to comprehend the instructions that Old Ancestral Master had poured into his mind.


When Lu Heng woke up from his cultivation state, the sky was bright. His side was empty. Lu Heng looked around and found a figure on the balcony. He pushed out the door, but unexpectedly coughed a few times by the incoming smoke.


Qin Yi turned around and saw Lu Heng. He quickly extinguished the cigarette in his hand.


“Do you smoke?”


“I used to smoke when I was ignorant, but after I joined the army, I found that smoking reduced my reaction ability, so I quit.” Qin Yi said.


“What’s bothering you?” Lu Heng asked.


“…” Qin Yi tossed the cigarette butt between his fingers into the trash can. “The time for sealing is approaching.”


“What?” Lu Heng knew it in his heart. It had also been mentioned in the sect records, and it was almost time for the death of the original world.


“According to Old Ancestral Master’s arrangements, there should be a massive formation to seal the demon plane. The time limit for sealing is coming.” Qin Yi said, “Originally, in his plan, before the sealing time had arrived, the earth vein of this plane would emit its own spiritual energy, so naturally there would have been no need to be afraid of the demonic energy coming from the demon plane.”


Now, with the seal being broken, it will be worse. The world had already begun to assimilate with the demon plane, and even produced low-level demons like the zombie king. Once the seal becomes useless, this plane is supposed to be merged with the demon plane.


“There is no solution. By laying nine phase formation in the earth veins, we can turn all the demonic qi in the world into spiritual qi. However, I can’t even touch the edge of the arranged formation 1. For the first time, I realize how incompetent I am.” Qin Yi grinned bitterly.


“There’s a way.” Lu Heng patted Qin Yi on the shoulder. Although Qin Yi had a great talent for comprehension, his time for cultivation has still been very short, and some things were not very clear.


Seeing Qin Yi’s eyes shining, Lu Heng continued, “Just use the already perfect formation in the mustard seed space.”


Qin Yi was somewhat puzzled: “That nine-phase formation is entrenched in an independent small world, and it is impossible to take out the whole array. Even if we take it apart in parts, we need to merge them into one. If we just join the pieces, it will not be able to recreate the formation.”


“I mean, merge the mustard seed space directly in the earth vein of this world.” Lu Heng said, “That way the formation will be directly integrated into the earth’s vein.”


“What else are we waiting for? Let’s hurry up and get rid of the biggest hidden danger so that we can celebrate a happy birthday.” Qin Yi said.


“Now we are not strong enough to do this, and the seal can still be maintained for a period of time, during which time we should step up our cultivation.” Lu Heng countered.


Without the evil lurking in the dark, Lu Heng had a quiet time during this period. Every day involved using crystal nucleus for cultivating or going out to cultivate and hunt. Occasionally, dual cultivation would be used to speed up the progress of cultivating, made their days filled with happiness.


{666 here, one day before Yunlan’s death}, the little assistant appeared, ruthlessly breaking the quiet and happy time.


{I see. }


At the time of this conversation, Lu Heng was practicing with his sword in the yard. Not far away, Mu Fei sat at the stone table, feeding Jiang Sile spoonfuls of food. Before he had even eaten a few mouthfuls, Jiang Sile suddenly smashed his rice bowl and jumped up and roared, “Who wants you to come and pretend! Shouldn’t you be together with that Pan Rongxi bitch? ”


Mu Fei’s face was covered with oil. He just wiped his face and said with a warm voice, “Little Le, don’t make trouble. Let’s have a good meal. Only when you eat can you be strong enough to beat monsters.”


“Beat monsters! Beat monsters! I really have abilities! I want to fight monsters!” Jiang Sile slowly squatted down and began to giggle.


Jiang Sile was crazy, and being forcefully unbound with the Jade Card, his soul was injured. When he woke up from the coma, it was like he lost his mind.


Everything about Jiang Sile was recorded in the shadow beads in the space. From the misuse of Cang Ming’s jade card to sneak into the battle formation of Heavenly Masters sect, followed by stealing the lingyuan. Later, after being completely demonized, handing over the crystal nucleus to Pan Rongxi, and at the key moment reversing the array in the nucleus, converting spiritual energy into demonic energy, and infecting Pan Rongxi. In addition, having Song Kunyu incite the three major powers to lead a large number of forces out of the base before the zombie siege, and forcing Qin Yi and Lu Heng to go out.


Although all the mistakes made by Jiang Sile were under the devil’s control, the appearance of the devil was due to his own extremely malicious intentions. Who was right and who was wrong? It was hard to distinguish between them. One could only sigh and foolishly keep pondering about it.


Jiang Sile’s rebirth had also been exposed. From his crazy words and scenes in the beads, Mu Fei pieced together this fact. Only in this way could he explain the cause of everything, the source of malice in Jiang Sile’s heart.


During this period, Mu Fei fell into frenzied self-accusation. He had abandoned Jiang Sile in his previous life, and later became together with Pan Rongxi, who killed Jiang Sile. This guilt almost overwhelmed Mu Fei. If Jiang Sile did not need his care, maybe he would not have the strength to live on.


Their entanglement had little to do with Lu Heng. Now, all he cared about was Qin Yi.


Chapter 56.2


The apocalypse’s heavenly master poorly versed in the world’s affairs (18.2)

___________


The night was dark, and in less than a day, it would be the point of death for Yunlan. Lu Heng half raised his body and looked at the sleeping face of the man beside him. The quilt slipped from his bare chest, and Lu Heng did not stretch out his hand to pull it over. He held a tranquil charm between his fingers, and despite hesitating for a moment, he still pasted it on Qin Yi’s forehead.


The note turned into bright light and went into Qin Yi’s head. His breathing deepened immediately. Lu Heng wore back his original narrow sleeved dress, which he hadn’t worn for a long time. It took a lot of effort.


He carried his di chen sword on his back and left as he had originally come. Only, he had a jade card in his hand.


Lu Heng, whose cultivation was much higher now, arrived at the foot of the sect when the horizon was still painted with the colour of dawn. This was thanks to the special maps that Qin Yi painstakingly drew for Lu Heng after his last return.


Lu Heng subconsciously squeezed the map in his hand and was about to move up. But he suddenly felt a pain in his heart, and a rush of uncontrolled memories flooded his mind.


That was the memory that Lu Heng was most reluctant to recall- the memory of Shi Kong falling into becoming a devil. The white-clothed monk, with a clear breeze expression and a bright moon-like face suddenly steeled his heart and forced his way out of the illusion. But only in time to witness the scene of the death of his beloved, and finally he fell into becoming a devil on the spot.


Lu Heng clenched his fist tightly and fiercely bit his lower lip. He turned around and walked back. No matter how it was, as two people with one heart, he shouldn’t make decisions for the other person so rashly. He should always let the other party know the facts and give the other party the chance to choose.


But before he could exit the forest, he came face to face with a tall figure.


Seeing the familiar person, Lu Heng did not say anything. Then he saw the figure of the man arrive in front of him in a flash.


It was Qin Yi, but it was not.


This man was not quite right.


“Why do you want to leave me, damn it!” At present, the person with red eyes and distinct looks overlapped with Shi Kong. “Do you want to die alone again?”


Lu Heng wanted to explain with a few words, but Qin Yi did not care and bit him in the lips. The rusty scent spread rapidly in Lu Heng’s mouth. Lu Heng intended to let Qin Yi vent and waited for him to calm down slowly.


Seeing this person not making any movements, he even pushed Lu Heng to the ground, and his right hand grabbed the neck of Landing Heng with an indelible force, and kissed him more crazily.


Lu Heng saw that Qin Yi had almost fallen into a state of insanity, and refused to hear anything at all. If he went on like this, he was afraid that he would fall into a devil again. He gritted his teeth and chopped on the back of his neck, knocking the other person unconscious.


Lu Heng pushed aside the person who was pressing down on him and turned over. Then he slung Qin Yi on his shoulder and journeyed towards the sect. He touched his deeply wounded lips and thought that thankfully, Yunlan’s strength was good; otherwise he could only drag the man up the hill.


When Qin Yi woke up, he found himself on the cliff in the sect. He somewhat panicked and turned over and sat up, but saw Lu Heng sitting far away from him.


“Why didn’t you say goodbye? How am I here?” Qin Yi’s mind was full of doubts.


He woke up in the middle of the night and found that his bedding was already cold. The di chen sword and jade card had disappeared, and inexplicably an enormous sense of panic overwhelmed him. Later, he fell into endless darkness.


Lu Heng laughed at him: “It was my mistake not to say goodbye. But I’m aware of my mistake, so you can stop thinking about it.”


Seeing Lu Heng hardly showing such a soft smile, the anger in Qin Yi’s heart vanished instantly. He moved forward and rubbed Lu Heng’s hair. “I don’t blame you for anything except leaving me.”


Lu Heng grabbed Qin Yi’s hand and stood up. “Do you remember how the Life Lamps in the Heavenly Masters sect went out?”


In the past, Qin Yi had heard Lu Heng saying: “The place with plenty of spiritual energy was suddenly exposed, which led to the siege by a zombie tide…”


“It takes time for the mustard seed space to merge with the big world. In the meantime, due to an instantaneous surge of spiritual energy, an endless tide of zombies will be attracted.” Lu Heng nodded.


When Qin Yi heard this, he understood the reason why Lu Heng did not say goodbye: “You want to stand guard in that moment alone!”


Lu Heng said without concealing anything, “I thought so. I wanted to face this life threatening danger by myself. But at the foot of the hill, I started regretting it. Between Dao companions, we should not hide things or decide for you arbitrarily.”


After that, Lu Heng reached out to Qin Yi and said, “There may be no return. What is your choice?”


The exact same scene. Not long ago, it was here, the same person, who held out his hand to him. 1


“Does it need to be said? With you, even if there is a sea of fire in front of me, I will walk beside you without any regrets.” Qin Yi heartily laughed and held the person in front of him firmly.


It was also a familiar enclosed small space, but Lu Heng’s mood was very different. Even at the last moment, the man still held his hand tightly. In trance, Lu Heng even heard a sentence like “Wait for me.”


“Little assistant, turn on the screen and write the concluding report. Let’s hurry to the next one.”


The little assistant looked at Lu Heng, whose eyes were full of vigor and vitality. Somehow it felt stuffed with a mouthful of dog food.


Lu Heng’s formation transformed all the demonic energy raging over the mainland into spiritual energy through the earth’s veins. Awakening abilities, more precisely, it led to activation of the spiritual roots of more and more people. The members of the Jian Dao team, led by Yu Shan, reestablished heavenly masters sect with the information Lu Heng had left behind. The word “heaven and earth” was worshipped and the Life lamps were lit, and the Heavenly Masters sect was inherited again.


Even after the seal failed, the demonic energy coming from the demon plane changed into an endless source of spiritual energy under the effect of the nine-phase formation. This low-level plane will soon be upgraded to a repair plane. Heavenly masters sect still held the indisputable first place, even amidst the myriad cultivation sects in full bloom.


The location of the sect’s cliff became a holy place for cultivators. It was not only because of the nine phase formation that provided spiritual energy for the whole plane, but also because of the two people who became jade statues for thousands of years because of the constant overuse of spiritual energy.


Two jade statues stood side by side, one holding a knife in his right hand and the other holding the sword across his chest with his left hand. Until the last moment of their lives, the two men remained in the combat stance. The two remaining hands were clasped tightly together.


These two holy statues had the same status as that of the Old Ancestral Master. They were said to have formed arrays to guard these nine phase formation and had fought against thousands of demons with their bodies. It was not until the formation was completed that their minds relaxed and they passed away from exhaustion.


Lu Heng thought for a moment, and clicked on the picture of Yunlan’s brother, Mu Fei.


The outcomes of those two men were rather shocking.


After years of quietly caring for Jiang Sile, Mu Fei heard that there were some psychotropic drugs in a place that could cure depression, so he wanted to find the cure for Jiang Sile. Unexpectedly, no one in the jian dao team wanted to go with him.


As soon as it was mentioned, everyone was angry: “If it hadn’t been for that Jiang Sile, Boss Qin would not have died. We let him live and have to see his crazy face every day, and now you also want us to go find medicine for him? Have you also gone crazy? ”


Others jabbed sarcastically, “Your brother was indirectly murdered by Jiang Sile. You now want to go searching for medicine for him. That’s truly… a radiant holy father.”


Mu Fei just whispered, “It’s not Little Le’s fault.”


Later, Mu Fei went to find the medicine alone, but never came back.


The picture was divided into two halves. On one hand, there was a dead body eaten by wild animals in the wilderness and became a still image, while on the other side, it was a still image of the scene of Jiang Sile living in the street, picking up garbage to survive.


Although Lu Heng was a little sorrowful in his heart, he also knew that this was the bitter result of their own actions, and no one could blame them.


“Go straight to the next commission.” Lu Heng said to his assistant.


“Shouldn’t you take a break for a few days?”


“For me, being in the task world itself is a break.”
