He Wan: "Uh..."

Tao Ran and Qiang Wei turned their heads at the same time, and the three fell into silence for a second.

After that, the two ashamed people jumped up and put on their clothes quickly. Tao Ran stood in place, embarrassed to see He Wan. Needless to say, He Wan was in a complicated mood. Her thoughts were also very confused, "Master..."

"Don't say anything." Tao Ran said to her: "You leave us for a while and let your Master be with Qiang... Fellow Daoist Qiang. She and I have something to discuss."

Qiang Wei looked at Tao Ran with a smile. In her heart, Xuan Qing had fully turned into a stinky Taoist spouting a bunch of nonsense.

Seeing that her Master was going to let her walk away by herself, He Wan was aggrieved: "Master..."

"I'll talk about it later, so go somewhere else and wait for your Master." Tao Ran looked at her and said, "Be good, listen to your Master."

Wow...Master has never been so gentle...

He Wan was still dizzy but still walked away, replaying the scene just now in her mind. The master wasn’t wearing anything, lying on the ground with hair loose, and covered in sweat...

Huh...Why do I remember so clearly?

After He Wan left, Qiang Wei smiled and said, "Shouldn't you not be shy anymore? You have deliberately distracted your apprentice. Is there anything embarrassing to say?"

Tao Ran looked at Qiang Wei and sighed, "Are you...are you comfortable now?"

Qiang Wei narrowed her eyes, "What do you mean?"

Tao Ran said: "You blame me for lying to you. I admit that I did lie to you. But I indeed saved you. You have grievances in your heart, just now... Anyway, I don't blame you. In short, what I want to say is, go back to the Southern Wilderness when you feel comfortable. Here is not the place where you should be."

"Are you trying to drive me away?" Qiang Wei said with a cold face: "The great Sword Sovereign Xuan Qing also commits this sort of madness and abandons me?"

"It is said that it started with madness, and it is not my responsibility to have had this happen. How could I abandon it?" Tao Ran said, "I don't blame you, but it doesn't mean I will accept it."

This world is different from other worlds not because he doesn't like Qiang Wei, but because he can't always be with Qiang Wei. If it were in other worlds, he would be with Qiang Wei for a lifetime. But in this world, they are all monks. Qiang Wei has a high cultivation, and her life is almost eternal. If he is with her, he will leave her sooner or later, and he doesn’t know if Qiang Wei could endure it.

So Tao Ran can't be with Qiang Wei, whether it's because of her or the task.

Qiang Wei obviously couldn't accept it, so she finally stopped liking the Demon Emperor. During the time when she returned to the Acacia Sect, she always thought of Xuan Qing. When thinking of practicing, she seemed to hear Xuan Qing playing the guqin in her ears. Then she thought, this time it definitely cannot be the same as before. Since she was sure she liked Xuan Qing, she must fight for it.

Besides, Xuan Qing is not necessarily ruthless towards her. In order to save herself, he was willing to use his own strength to fight against the Demon Emperor. He was seriously injured but wanted to help her escape. How can a righteous monk treat a demon cultivator like this? So she believed that Xuan Qing must also have some affection for her.

That's why she left the Southern Wilderness and came here. She didn't dare to go to Penglai but followed Xuan Qing's apprentice He Wan. After hearing He Wan say that Xuan Qing gave her a spell, a plan was formed in her heart. She couldn't go to Penglai to see Xuan Qing, but Xuan Qing could come here to see her.

She approached Xuan Qing deliberately and set him down, first to see what he really looked like, and secondly, to take the initiative and create opportunities for herself. Everything went well. She did see many unknown aspects of Xuan Qing and had the closest contact with him, but now this person wants her to go?

Qiang Wei wanted to ask him what he thought of herself, but her pride did not allow her to ask. She just looked at Tao Ran and said, "Are you doing this because of your identity?"

"No." Tao Ran said apologetically: "I'm just telling you the truth with all my heart. I don't want to form a Taoist couple or have a lover hold me down."

"What about your apprentice? Isn't the apprentice tied?"

"No." Tao Ran smiled: "The apprentice is used to inherit the mantle. Sooner or later, she will grow up to be a person of her own. How can it be said that it is bondage."

Qiang Wei squeezed her fist tightly, stared at Tao Ran, and said, "Don't regret it."

Tao Ran felt that something was wrong with her state of mind and asked, "You... will be a good person, right?"

"Sword Sovereign, what is the relationship between you and me? What kind of person am I? I don't care about you." Qiang Wei got angrier and angrier and stormed off.

Tao Ran looked at her back with an ominous feeling. He asked Xiaomei: "Xiaomei, Qiang Wei doesn't like the male lead anymore. She shouldn't be blackened, right?"

Xiao Mei couldn't be sure: "She shouldn't be anymore, logically speaking."

"Oh, then I can rest assured." Tao Ran said: "I'd better die quickly. It's too bad to be here."

Xiaomei reminded: "The host can leave as soon as possible, but he must never do anything to hurt himself. Doing so will leave a bug in the world."

"I know, you have said it many times..."

He Wan was waiting for her master to come out on the periphery of Linzi. How could she say she was also a monk of the Golden Core stage? She knew exactly what the Master and Qiang Wei were doing just now. She was shocked that her master, who was as cold as the snow lotus on the ice, would even dual cultivate with others in the wild, with his apprentice unconscious next to him.

Tao Ran saw He Wan, walked over, and said, "Let's go."

"Ah? Oh!" He Wan came back to her senses and followed Tao Ran unnaturally. She thought for a while and asked: "You...have discussed with Senior Qiang Wei?"

What do you mean by discussing it? Why does this sound so wrong?

Tao Ran felt a pang in his heart: "Yes, it's okay. She was joking with you before. Now we can go back to Penglai, and your seniors are fine."

"That's good." He Wan felt relieved, still thinking about what she had seen before. Maybe it's because she has been with Xuan Qing since she was a child, maybe because she discovered that Master has become much gentler recently, He Wan boldly asked, "Master."

Tao Ran: "Huh?"

He Wan: "Did you and Senior Qiang Wei dual cultivate?"

"..." Tao Ran was speechless for a while, but he didn't expect He Wan to ask. He could only sternly adopt a very serious look: "Yeah."

He Wan got the answer and couldn't help but continue to ask: "Why do you want to dual cultivate with Senior Qiang Wei?"

Because I was drugged by her...

At this time, admitting that he was drugged was far more serious than admitting that he was a sex monster. Tao Ran could only say with a cold face, "There are some things children don't need to know."

"But I'm not a kid anymore. Master Yun has forgotten that the disciple has reached the age to find a Taoist companion." He Wan opened a pair of pure eyes and said: "The disciple can know these things."

Tao Ran was struggling. How could such a thing be said? Just say that your master was given medicine by the devil in order to save you, and then the devil was in front of you. Not only does your master not blame her, but he also feels very cool. Did the two of them keep doing things until you woke up?

There is no way to say this. He Wan may doubt life when he says it. After all, in her heart, Master is a serious person.

Without getting Tao Ran's answer, He Wan with a big brain suddenly realized: "Master, I understand."

Tao Ran was startled, and said in his heart, what have you understood?

"Master did dual cultivation with Senior Qiang Wei to heal, right? After all, the double cultivation technique of the Acacia Sect is the best in the world." He Wan opened her eyes to look at Tao Ran as if she was so smart and saying, come and praise me.

Tao Ran's mouth twitched slightly, and then said: "Yes, that's it, you are so smart."

Being praised by the master is simply the happiest thing in the world. He Wan asked again: "Surely it can't be healed by dual cultivating once, right?"

Why would I want to talk about dual cultivation with a little girl? Tao Ran said with a grimace: "No."

"Then why doesn't Master dual cultivate with Senior Qiang Wei several times?"

Tao Ran: "..."

"Because she is a member of the Southern Wilderness Demon Way. She cannot have too much contact with me as a teacher."

"Oh." He Wan nodded as if she understood. She lowered her head and followed Tao Ran. Suddenly raised his head and said, "Master, what about your injury?"

Tao Ran: "I need to cultivate slowly."

"The headmaster said that your injury is very difficult to heal, you..." He Wan said in a weak voice suddenly: "Master, have you ever thought of finding a righteous monk for dual cultivation?"

After listening to her, Tao Ran suddenly appeared in his mind that the Penglai faction issued a hero post, hiring various heroines for Sword Sovereign Xuan Qing to dual cultivate. He was struck by something he had thought of, and said with a tangled face: "I never thought. Don't worry too much about your master."

I don't know what's going on. He Wan was a little happy, but also a little disappointed. This feeling was very complicated. She didn't know the reason, but she thought that even if Master didn't practice with others, she would definitely help Master find medicine to help him heal his injuries.

Tao Ran didn't know He Wan's thoughts. He had never thought much about people other than vicious female partners. Even though the heroine didn't like the hero this time, he didn't pay much attention to it. As Xiaomei said, he only needs to be responsible for Qiang Wei, and it doesn't matter to him what other people are doing. It's best not to invest too much in the virtual characters in the novel.

When he returned to Penglai, he was meditating and healing his injuries on the surface as before, but in fact, he was just in a daze. If he can't do things that hurt himself, that is, he can't commit suicide. Then the only way he wants to leave early is to let the injury get worse without healing so that it doesn't hurt him.

He Wan was very anxious as she watched her master's condition worsen day by day, but she could do nothing. She only thought that Master had fought the Demon Emperor for her sake and was injured. The reason why Master became like this was all because of her.
