Vol.1 – Chapter 38 – After a month, Fifth Peak came to knock on the door in the morning

One month later.


Green Bamboo Residence.




Xu Taiping tore off a page of the calendar on the wall, revealing a new page—July 9th, it's good to entertain guests, but avoid going out.


"In the blink of an eye, it's been almost a month since Sister Lingyue fell asleep."


He stretched and muttered to himself.


"I wonder if the injuries of that demon tiger have healed by now?"


Thinking of the demon tiger that had been eyeing him, Xu Taiping's eyes suddenly became sharp.


After breaking through the Opening Realm, the childishness on his face had completely disappeared, replaced by the aura of a cultivator. If he didn't deliberately restrain himself, even his every move could give ordinary people an inexplicable sense of oppression.


"I'm not afraid even if it comes."


Xu Taiping clenched his fists and looked resolutely out the window.


Although only a month had passed, during this time, Xu Taiping had been practicing almost non-stop. Because of his breakthrough, he could now fast for half a month without causing any harm to his body, and he could use meditation to replace sleep.


As a result, his cultivation time had doubled. Those cultivators who could only practice for three or four hours a day naturally couldn't compare to him.


During this period of hard practice, Xu Taiping had almost mastered the Ice Breath Technique taught by Fairy Lingyue. The martial art he had previously practiced, the "Green Bull Fist," had also made significant progress. For example, the Charging Bull Formation, which could only be performed with a dozen punches before, could now be completed with a full 108 punches, and its power was quite considerable.


In addition, during this period, he also purchased a "Seven Killings Blade" to make up for the lack of mid-range attack power, and now he had almost mastered it.


Coupled with the magical flying sword obtained from the Evil Ghost, and the remaining Gathering Qi Pill, Xu Taiping now had at least the ability to protect himself from the demon tiger.


"Bang, bang, bang!…"


Just as Xu Taiping was about to wash up, the courtyard door of the Green Bamboo Residence was suddenly knocked on.


"Is the friend of Green Bamboo Residence in the courtyard? We are disciples of the Fifth Peak of the Qingxuan Sect, and we have something to ask today."


A pleasant voice of a young girl came from outside the door.


"The Fifth Peak's disciples?"


Xu Taiping's heart stirred.


He remembered that the younger sister of Liu Qingmei, and the one who killed her, Lu Chen, were also disciples of the Fifth Peak.


"Is the friend of Green Bamboo Residence in the courtyard?"


The girl asked again.






By this time, Xu Taiping had almost reached the front yard, and was about to respond, but the courtyard door was kicked open by someone.


The barrier of the Green Bamboo Residence only prevented demons, not humans.


"An outer disciple like him doesn't need to be so polite."


After the door was kicked open, a tall and handsome young man walked in grumbling.


"Oh, aren't you in the courtyard?"


After seeing Xu Taiping standing in the center of the courtyard, the young man raised his chin slightly and looked at Xu Taiping arrogantly.


Xu Taiping didn't say anything, just looked quietly at the young man.


He wasn't intimidated by the powerful aura emanating from the young man, but recognized the face of the young man.


Yes, this person was Lu Chen, the Fifth Peak disciple who killed Liu Qingmei.


"Speak up, why are you silent for so long? Are you doing something that you don't want others to see?"


Seeing Xu Taiping not speaking, Lu Chen immediately sneered and accused Xu Taiping.


"According to the rules of the Qingxuan Sect, trespassing into someone else's residence will result in the expulsion of an outer disciple, and a named disciple will be punished once and forbidden to leave for three months."


Xu Taiping's disgust for Lu Chen flashed in his eyes, then he looked at him calmly.


"Do you dare to threaten me? You, an unnamed outer disciple, dare to threaten me, Lu Chen?"


Lu Chen sneered, his eyes filled with killing intent.


"If you don't leave my residence now, I will report you to the higher-ups."


Xu Taiping took out a communication talisman.


This was sent by the Gale Hall after the meal, as a special gesture to show respect to Uncle Nine.


"How dare you!"


Although Lu Chen was still very tough, from his uncertain eyes, it was clear that he was very afraid of the rules of the Qingxuan Sect.


The reason why Xu Taiping was not afraid of Lu Chen was that he knew the rules of the Qingxuan Sect were strict, especially for inner disciples. If they made too many mistakes, they would definitely be expelled from the Fifth Peak.


"Brother Lu!"


At this time, the girl next to him pulled Lu Chen back, then looked apologetically at Xu Taiping and said:


"Please calm down, Brother Lu is just a little impatient, and means no harm."


Seeing Xu Taiping's expression soften, the girl's face immediately showed a hint of joy, and she continued:


"I will compensate for the damage to the courtyard door, but before that, I have a question for the young friend."


"What do you want to ask?"


Xu Taiping looked calmly at the girl.


"I want to ask if you have seen a woman who looks somewhat similar to me in this area in the past six months. She is a little taller than me, with longer hair than me…"


As the girl spoke, she tried to describe the appearance of the woman she was looking for.


"Is she about this tall? Have you seen her, young friend?"After her description, the girl looked at Xu Taiping with eyes brimming with urgency.


Beside her, Lu Chen remained silent at this moment, his gaze fixed intently on Xu Taiping, as if he was even more concerned about Xu Taiping's response than the girl.


"In the past six months, I indeed encountered a woman," Xu Taiping said, his eyes casually glancing towards Lu Chen next to the girl.


Upon hearing this, Lu Chen's eyes immediately revealed a hint of murderous intent, and his hand went straight to the hilt of the sword at his waist.
