Chapter 45 I Tell You This Is My Expression ( ´_ゝ｀) (2)
Regular release 5/14
After Xu Shenxing and Moli’s effort, finally they stopped the main hall of the White-hart Taoist Temple falling and crashing on the ground, miraculously, no one in the main hall was hurt.
Gratifying! Their effort was worth celebrating!
“Why do you look so happy? Weren’t you the person who caused this?”
Qin Xingyan couldn’t tolerate his attitude and berated.
“Eh, I have already apologized…”
“If apology could solve problems, why does hell exist?”
“Eh? Does hell really exist?”
“I don’t know.” The girl said stoutly.
“Hey, you don’t know? Aren’t you a cultivation practicer?”
To see Qin Xingyan talked in such a breezy way with the far stronger person who beat down the entire temple members (Moli was just looking them on the side), the survivors of the White-hart Taoist Temple… Ok, it wasn’t suitable a word. Anyway, Xu Shenxing didn’t land any heavy blows to anyone when he broke in. Except for when he had he punched that group of old men and women to the sky (then caught them when they dropped down), the heaviest injury any of the disciples suffered was merely a scratch. In a word, the other disciples looked adoringly at their senior apprentice sister.
“So, how can I make amends?” Xu Shenxing rascally sat on the ground. “I have to warn you. I have no money.”
“I don’t need you to emphasize this…” Of course, as a member, Qin Xingyan lived in the Sukura Apartment for a period of time, thus, she knew how poor Xu Shenxing was. “Our White-hart Taoist Temple has almost been destroyed. I hope that you can help us rebuild the temple. ”
“Humph. Even though I’m poor, I won’t be a construction worker!”
Wasn’t being a delivery man at the same level with construction work?
“Two hundred yuan per day.”
“My total 150 pounds body is waiting for your order!”
Qin Xingyan speechlessly looked at Xu Shening, who was talking nonsense with a straight face. She suddenly understood why Moli was so unscrupulous and who was the person taught her those things.
In this case, the reconstruction work of the White-hart Taoist Temple started.
“M…Master.” One day at noon, a disciple of the temple meticulously came to Xu Shenxing, who was eating his dinner. His face was covered with cold sweat as he nervously said, “My master call you to the Wing Palace.”
Xu Shenxing forced a smile. “Okay, I know.”
Then the disciple immediately ran away, as if he was a prisoner who was just released from the jail.
Xu Shenxing poked the feet of Moli, who was lying on the tree and basking in the sun. “Do you want to go with me?”
“No, I want to go home… a world without Internet… shouldn’t continue to exist…”
Though she murmured that, it seemed that Moli wasn’t going to leave Xu Shenxing here and return to Sakura Apartment alone.
Xu Shenxing shrugged his shoulders, walking to the Wing Palace of the White-hart Taoist Temple… This was the only building that had escaped the disaster due to it being too far from the main hall of the temple.
“Hello, can I help you?” Xu Shenxing walked to the door and saw that a group of people were talking about something.
“We do need your help.”
The sprightly old man who was sitting on the chair was the current master of the White Taoist Taoist Temple. His strength was pretty good, with the help of the ley line of the temple, he stopped Xu Shenxing for 30 seconds… this was also the main reason that Xu Shenxing felt impatient and threw the temple to the sky.
Incidentally, though Xu Shenxing himself said that he was a 20-year-old young man, the old man said that he was just a low-pitched old-timer otherwise he couldn’t be so strong. Afterwards, the old man’s respectful words made Xu Shenxing feel a little pain in his stomach.
“In fact, some developers took a fancy to Dan Xiao Mountain. They wanted to build a tourist attraction on it… Of course, after our secular disciples negotiated with them, they agreed that they would only develop the lower part of the mountain. They wouldn’t let their hands reach behind the mountain.”
“I thought it wasn’t a difficult thing to make a few mortals give up their plan, right? ” Xu Shenxing asked curiously.
“Because they accept to share their profits with us, and undertake the rebuilding and maintenance cost of our White-hart Taoist Temple.” The old man smiled bitterly. “Without money, it’s difficult to move a single step in this era. Even though we are regarded as hermits, we are the same. Of course, they don’t know that we are special. They just think that we are a common temple that has good connections.”
So, even the old, secret cultivation sect couldn’t escape the effect of money…
After all, everyone needed food to fill their stomachs. Even though they didn’t need a lot of things, they still need to eat. Spirit medicinal herbs were planted in every area of the temple. After all, it was a place rich in spirit qi, as such planting priceless spirit medicinal herbs was far more better than planting vegetables…
Because they was in the range of the Jiujiang National Park, the nearby mountains were a popular option for travel. So, it was impossible to send disciples to hunt… besides, it would be awkward if they hunted national protected animals.
For cultivation practitioners; money, partners, methods of cultivation and land were four necessary elements. Since “money” was the first element, it had its reason. Thinking from this angle, it was not difficult to understand that the White-hart Taoist Temple would agree to their claims.
“So, what do you want me to do?” As Xu Shenxing thought of it, he had to ask with puzzlement, “Do you want me to threaten the developers to give you more money?”
“No, not so.”
“Don’t you want me to raise the devil, drag them into troubles and finally have them seek help from your White-hart Taoist Temple? I’m pretty good at it, you can count on me.”
“No, we don’t! By the way, senpai, I’m surprised to know that you have that kind of experience!” Beside him, Qin Xingyan couldn’t stop her desire to ridicule him.
“You want me to kidnap their family members? Even it’s me, it’s a little beyond my mortal baseline…” Xu Shenxing seemed quite distressed.
“What are we, the White-hart Taoist Temple, in your heart?”
“…an illegal religious organization hidden in the mountain?” Just when his voice faded away, Xu Shenxing clamped Qin Xingyan’s tingling flying sword with his two fingers, then laughed out loudly under the girl’s ferocious gaze. “I’m kidding, just a joke. But what do you really want me to do?”
“I hope that you can persuade the youkai in Dan Xiao Mountain to move their houses to the back of the mountain.” The old man acted like he didn’t see their farce and said with an abstracted look. “After all, commercial development would destroy their habitats. Before they make some troubles with the humans, we hope that they can move their houses to the back of the mountain, living together with us… we will share the spirit qi lay line with them.”
“I’m sorry, but aren’t youkai fundamentally hostile to you cultivation practitioners?” Xu Shenxing raised his hand like a curious pupil.
Despite all that, his fingers still clamped Qin Xingyan’s powerful flying sword, Red Sleeves, so it looked pretty weird.
After a long silence, the old man finally uttered a deep sigh. His stooped body seemed more desolate. “We are all the foundlings of the time. I hope I can help them while we still can… Otherwise, in the future people will only know of the existence of youkai in mythologies.”
