CHAPTER: Xiao Bai Huayin

Once more, Mo Yao asked to be taught about cultivation. But she was stunned for a moment thanks to being refused right away by Hua Yin. She didn't expect this kind of result at all. She had already imagined a powerful image of herself cultivating and making the people who bullied her pay the price, but she didn't predict that she wouldn’t get to practice at all.

After thinking about how she was insulted by others but couldn’t dare to refute, beaten up but unable to fight back, and how she was once helpless and in despair... She bit her lip. A hint of firmness flashed in her beautiful eyes.

【Mo Yao】: Huh? I’m not from the mortal world. There used to be immortals and cultivators in my world, but since the fall of the cultivation system, cultivators or immortals are quite rare now.

【Taoist Master Hua Yin】: What? There used to be immortals in your world?!

Hua Yin was really shocked. Even in a realm such as Canglan, filled with abundant aura and rich resources, only a few could soar to the immortal level. That barren world of Mo Yao’s, where even the Beautifying pill was unheard of, also had immortals? How could he not be shocked?

【Mo Yao】: Well, there was Zhang Guolao [1], He Xiangu [2], Lan Caihe [3], and also the fox spirit Su Daji [4], and the snake spirit Bai Suzhen [5]...

What she said sounded very plausible, and Hua Yin was almost convinced by it. The names that she had mentioned made it clear that her world must’ve had a glorious period of spiritual cultivation. Otherwise, it would be impossible to have so many immortals! Could it really be that the cultivation practices of her world had a downfall? Hua Yin was deep in thought when he suddenly received a private message from the Grim Reaper——

"Hehe, she’s treating myths and legends as history and making a fool out of you, Xiao Bai! Take a look at your own experience. JPG*."

[TL NOTE: Xiao Bai is slang for novice, idiot]

Hua Yin: ...

Nevertheless, Hua Yin believed Wen Qing's words because she had no reason to lie to him. Her suggestions were for his own good. He would end up bearing the consequences if he found out that she was from an ordinary world after teaching her about cultivation.

And thinking about Mo Yao's text before and after, the change was too unnatural. It was clearly a lie. If it were someone else in this situation, the change might’ve been noticed long ago. But it was Hua Yin, the most simple-minded of the seven, so Mo Yao would naturally target him.

After figuring it out, Hua Yin couldn't help but be angry at Mo Yao for lying to him.

【Taoist Master Hua Yin】: @Mo Yao you’re obviously an ordinary mortal, but you lied to me saying you belong to a world with cultivation. You had almost tricked me into bearing the consequences! Too despicable! Don't talk to me anymore from now on!

Hua Yin wanted to scold her more but felt that it would only degrade his status to fuss about this kind of person. He decided to put on airs and ignore her. Moreover, Hua Yin felt quite embarrassed being tricked by a mortal. He then went offline to cultivate. He didn't want to join the group for the time being.

Mo Yao, who was exposed by Hua Yin, suddenly panicked. Although she didn't know how Hua Yin knew that she had lied. But she couldn’t accept his accusation. Otherwise, how would she still mingle with the group in the future?

【Mo Yao】: Great God Hua Yin, let me explain. I didn’t know that those myths don’t count. Since I’ve contacted you great gods, I thought those legends were true. I didn’t intend to lie to you!

【Mo Yao】: Sorry, it was my mistake. But, I really didn't mean it.

【Mo Yao】: Are you still there, Great God Hua Yin?

……

Mo Yao made many excuses, but no one replied. They had all left to cultivate. Wen Qing saw the messages, but she didn't respond. She had more important matters to deal with.

Wen Qing walked into a dim alley. The rain had just stopped, and the roads were full of puddles. The garbage was soaked in sewage, giving off an unpleasant smell, and flies buzzed around. Wen Qing calmly walked through the rubbish pile to the innermost spot.

A blood-stained man was lying on the ground. It was unclear whether he was dead or alive. This place was relatively remote, and the stench of rubbish concealed the scent of the man’s blood, making it impossible to notice the motionless body. Wen Qing frowned in disgust. She didn't know how Mo Yao came to such a remote and messy place by accident. Fortunately, she found the man here and saved him in passing. Moreover, this man even had an extraordinary identity! He could be called a humanoid plug-in!
