Chapter 2 – Pure and graceful Qin E’nuo

Three days later, outside Yuzhou City.


Sword Qi came from the east, sweeping across a hundred meters.


Soon after, plum blossoms filled the sky, and an elegant and extraordinary figure stepped on the sword, with a grand and imposing manner.


"Wow, Plum Blossom Sword Immortal is here!"


Inside Yuzhou City, the people looked at Plum Blossom Sword Immortal descending from the sky, their faces filled with admiration and respect.


With a gentle breeze, the plum blossoms scattered, and Qin E'nuo landed on the ground, putting away her ancient sword.


In sight, the woman appeared like a fairy from another world, with picturesque features and an unreal beauty. She wore a white dress that was untainted by dust, pure and flawless.


"Fairy, I love you, you are my idol!"


Among the bustling crowd, Li Ziye, who had nothing better to do, watched Qin E'nuo's grand entrance and enthusiastically joined in, waving his arms and shouting loudly.






Perhaps Li Ziye shouted too loudly, as the people around turned their heads and looked at him like he was an idiot, instinctively taking a step back.


As a result, Li Ziye became the most eye-catching person in the crowd.


"Fairy… I love…"


Seeing the situation, Li Ziye's expression froze, and he forcibly swallowed the last word.


What's wrong? Why isn't anyone shouting anymore?


Don't all important figures make their entrance like this? I'm just cooperating!


"Isn't this Li Baiwan's son? Why is he an idiot?"


"I don't know, I've never heard that Li Baiwan's son is an idiot."


"You guys don't understand anything. This Young Master Li is a genius. Geniuses are always a bit different. It's called having character."


In the crowd, someone recognized Li Ziye and whispered to others. Some were puzzled, while others admired.


Of course, those who admired were obviously talking nonsense.




Li Ziye was speechless. Sensing that things were not going well, he covered his face and left dejectedly.


How embarrassing!


In front of the crowd, Qin E'nuo glanced at Li Ziye, who was leaving in embarrassment, with a thoughtful look in her eyes.


An idiot?




Li Residence, Li Ziye returned. By the lake in the backyard, Slovenly Zhang, who was meditating with his eyes closed, asked without opening his eyes, "Did you see her?"


Li Ziye awkwardly touched his nose and said, "Yes, I saw her."


"How is it? Is Qin E'nuo suitable to be your master?" Slovenly Zhang said indifferently.


Li Ziye stopped in his tracks and stared at the old man in front of him for a long time before saying, "Old Zhang, are you mocking me?"


"Yes." Slovenly Zhang nodded.


"Slovenly Zhang, you're someone who sells your integrity for ten jars of Intoxicated Blossom Brew, and yet you have the audacity to mock others."


Li Ziye sneered and then sat down next to Slovenly Zhang, lying down, and asked, "Old Zhang, is Old Qin really as powerful as you say, despite her young age?"


"Martial arts cannot be judged solely by age."


Slovenly Zhang calmly said with his eyes closed, "You have to admit that there are people in this world called geniuses, and Qin E'nuo is the genius among geniuses."


"I'm really envious." Li Ziye sighed.


"Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses. It's not something you can force, and you don't need to be too obsessed." Slovenly Zhang said.


"What are my strengths?" Li Ziye asked.


Slovenly Zhang fell silent, and after a long time, he finally spoke, "You look decent, worthy of being called 'gold and jade on the outside.'"


"Slovenly Zhang, your skill in insulting people is getting better and better. I admire you."


Li Ziye said with a smirk. This old man didn't even use curse words when insulting people. "Gold and jade on the outside," isn't the next line "rubbish on the inside"?


"What's wrong? Am I wrong?" Slovenly Zhang said calmly.


"I heard that another young maid from the mansion voluntarily entered your room last night. How about it, is your virgin body still intact?"


"Get lost!"


Li Ziye said irritably, "It's not my fault that I look good. I'm also troubled by it."


"You're really asking for a beating with those words." Slovenly Zhang said.


"Slovenly Zhang, I've made up my mind!"


Li Ziye suddenly sat up straight, his expression determined, "I must worship Old Qin as my master, succeed in the path of martial arts, and then become famous and invincible."


Slovenly Zhang opened his eyes, looked at the young man in front of him for a while, and asked, "Are you serious?"


"Of course."


Li Ziye nodded.


"Youth is truly wonderful."


Slovenly Zhang sighed, "Even daydreams are said with such grandeur."




This old man is really bad, Li Ziye couldn't be bothered to pay him any attention.


"Young Master, Old Sir is calling for you."


At this moment, a servant hurriedly walked over and said anxiously.


"What's the matter?" Li Ziye asked.


"The Sword Immortal, Plum Blossom Sword Immortal, has arrived." The servant said.


"Old… Old Qin?"


Li Ziye stood up in surprise when he heard this, "So soon."


After speaking, Li Ziye immediately walked quickly towards the front yard.


"Indeed, young people can't hold back their excitement."


By the lake, Slovenly Zhang closed his eyes again and said calmly.




In the front yard, inside the main hall.


Li Baiwan accompanied Qin E'nuo with a bootlicker-like expression, all for the sake of his son's apprenticeship. It was all nonsense.


"Fairy, this tea suits your taste."


"Fairy, I also have the best Cloud Mist Tea."


"Fairy, would you like some wine? I have ten-year-old Intoxicated Blossom Brew and Daughter's Red, which is twenty years old."






When Li Ziye arrived at the main hall, he saw his father's bootlicking appearance and wished he could stuff him into a crack in the ground.


So embarrassing!"Fairy, after traveling for so many days, you must be tired. I have learned a few massage techniques from the doctor in the residence. Would you like me to help relieve your fatigue?" Li Ziye quickly stepped forward with a smile as bright as a blooming flower.


"No need."


Qin E'nuo was not fooled by the father and son's act, her expression indifferent as she said, "I assume you both understand the purpose of my visit. The conditions for becoming my disciple are simple: pass my test and you can become my student."


"What test?" Li Ziye immediately became alert and asked.


Beside them, Li Baiwan also approached, listening attentively.


"Don't block me, your face is too big."


Li Ziye pushed Li Baiwan's face away without a good temper.


Li Baiwan smiled apologetically and took two steps back.


"Three tasks."


Qin E'nuo glanced at the strange father and son and calmly said, "Complete three tasks, and I will acknowledge that you have passed the test."


"Three tasks?" Li Ziye's mind tightened. There were so many tasks; it wouldn't be easy to deceive Old Qin.


"Of course, I won't make you complete all three tasks immediately. I will give you time. Today, I am here to tell you about the first task."


Qin E'nuo stood up and said calmly, "The first task is to find or forge a sword within one day. It must be crafted with exceptional skill and be extraordinary."


After speaking, Qin E'nuo didn't linger or give any further instructions. She walked out of the main hall and left gracefully.


In the hall, the father and son exchanged glances, their expressions different.


"Is Old Qin match-fixing?" Li Ziye asked with a puzzled expression.


Who didn't know that his father had money? Not to mention one sword, he could buy ten thousand swords.


"Could there be something fishy? Fairy Qin said it must be crafted with exceptional skill," Li Baiwan asked with some concern.


Li Ziye looked at him disdainfully and said, "Father, can you not be so naive? What does 'crafted with exceptional skill' and 'extraordinary' mean? It's like an open-ended question. Whether the answer is correct or not, it's all up to Old Qin."


Speaking of this, Li Ziye suddenly seemed to remember something and asked anxiously, "By the way, Father, did you give her the silver?"


"Look at my memory."


Li Baiwan slapped his thigh, his stomach trembling, and regretfully said, "I was too busy entertaining Fairy Qin and forgot about it."


"Old Li, how can you not forget to eat!"


Li Ziye said with a resentful expression, "Quickly send someone to find out where Old Qin is staying and give her the silver!"


"No need to find out. I had someone follow Qin E'nuo when she entered the city."


Just then, a beautiful woman with a graceful figure walked into the hall. Li Baiwan respectfully greeted her, "Sister Youwei."


"Sister Youwei."


Seeing the newcomer, Li Ziye immediately approached with a joyful smile, "Sister Youwei is the best. I can trust you with anything, unlike Father, who is unreliable."


Li Youwei smiled lightly and said softly, "Little brother has good taste. Qin E'nuo looks good and has a nice figure. She seems well-nurtured. She's got a big ass, too. Must be great at giving birth.First, become her disciple, then conquer her. It's a good plan."


Li Ziye: "…"


Li Baiwan: "…"


What a dirty word!


"Sister Youwei."


Li Ziye quickly changed the subject and said, "Since you have been following Old Qin, did you find out where she is staying?"


"West of the city, Yuelai Inn. Our family's property is nothing special, except for one word: expensive! This shows that Fairy Qin is a person who pays attention to details," Li Youwei said.


"If she pays attention to details, it's easy to handle. Father, did you hear that clearly?"


Upon hearing this, Li Ziye immediately turned around and shouted, "Hurry up and prepare a gift. It must be valuable, the more valuable the better. We must let Old Qin feel our sincerity."


"I'll go now."


Li Baiwan smiled apologetically and left the hall to make preparations.


Seeing his father leave, Li Ziye turned to his elder sister in the hall and smiled, "Sister Youwei, I'll trouble you to deliver the gift to Old Qin later. I don't trust anyone else."




Li Youwei nodded and softly replied, "Your matters are the most important to the Li Residence."


At sunset, when the sun was setting in the west, Li Youwei arrived alone at Yuelai Inn.


"Knock, knock."


She knocked on the door, and then Qin E'nuo opened it.


"Li Youwei, Li Ziye's elder sister," Li Youwei got straight to the point and introduced herself.


"What's the matter?" Qin E'nuo asked.


Li Youwei approached without any nonsense, placed the package she was carrying on the ground, and opened three boxes one by one.


"Night Pearl from the Eastern Sea, found in the depths of the Eastern Sea, worth ten thousand gold."


"Heavenly Silkworm Soft Armor, impervious to blades and fire, worth one million gold."


"Fish Intestine Sword, once owned by Duke Wei in ancient times, priceless treasure."


The three boxes displayed three priceless treasures, and Li Youwei put down the items without lingering and prepared to leave.


Before leaving, Li Youwei turned around and asked only one question, "Does the Fairy have any guidance?"


Qin E'nuo remained silent for a moment before speaking, "Do your best is enough."


Li Youwei nodded without asking any further questions and left.


The night was long. Li Ziye stood in the courtyard, looking at the night sky. After a long time, he was filled with poetic inspiration.


"Ah, money can make the devil be the worker. Ah, money can make the worker be the devil!"


"My son is truly a genius!"


In the room, Li Baiwan looked at his son through the window, his face filled with pride.




The next day, at the agreed time.


All eyes were on them as plum blossoms danced in the sky. The Fairy arrived, stepping on the sword, her appearance transcendent and untainted by the mortal world.


She seemed like an ice and snow fairy descending to the mortal world, so perfect, so ethereal, so pure as jade.In the grand hall, Li Ziye took out a pure gold-cast treasure sword and handed it over.


The golden light was dazzling, extremely blinding.


Qin E'nuo took the golden treasure sword, gazed at it for a long time, then nodded with a calm expression, praising:


"Not bad, the art of sword cultivation lies not in the sword itself, but in the cultivation. At the highest realm, even falling flowers and leaves can be swords. Being too obsessed with external objects will only lead to inferior achievements. Your answer is very good, you've passed the test."


Li Baiwan: "……"


Li Ziye: "……"
