Chapter 238.2: Daggers Hidden Behind A Smile
“Oh?” Qing Luo Fei raised an eyebrow with interest. “So how did that come about?”
“I am an Elixir Cultivator and I happened to save a very troublesome man by accident. That man was afflicted with voodoo poison and a rather special kind of curse. Although it took me quite a lot of effort, I was fortunately able to cure him.” Qing Yu told her story slowly, an unreadable smile on her face as she looked at the woman before her.
As expected, the expression on Qing Luo Fei’s face changed when she heard that, slight shock and disbelief coming to show on it.
Qing Yu’s lips curved up almost unnoticeably as she continued to say: “Then came the time where I was attacked by a mysterious person. It was a woman, but she looked heinously ugly, and her body exuded an evil aura. She said she wanted to kill me as I was the one who caused her to turn into that horrifying state that looked neither human nor ghost. She even claimed to be a grand priestess in Cloud Heaven and I did not know at that time, but I understand where she is from now.”
“That woman’s manner of dress was exactly like what everyone here in the divine temple wears. But….. isn’t the divine temple a sacred place blessed by the gods? How could such an evil being appear in a place like this? This is what I really find very puzzling.”
Upon saying that, the young lady knitted up her brows, her face looking highly confused.
At that moment, Qing Luo Fei’s heart surged up in tumult.
[If what the young lady said is true, then the man she saved….. would definitely be the Overlord of the Dark Lands, Lou Jun Yao.]
She had initially wondered how the lower realms was able to produce a person of such great skill, who was able to unravel the curse they had spent so many years to plant into the body of that man.
Even the Emotion Devouring Curse had been dispelled, which was something she had not thought to be possible.
But despite what she thought, someone had really done that.
For someone to possess such unparalleled skill in healing, they would usually be some reclusive sage or monstrously old freaks who had lived for a very long time. But right before her eyes at that moment was instead a flawlessly beautiful young lady who looked to be only in her teens, and was telling her with a big smile on her face that she was the one who did it.
It all sounded just too incredulous.
“What is the Temple Lord thinking about? Are you trying to recall if such a person really existed in the Divine Temple?”
The young lady spoke up with a smile, pulling the woman back from her thoughts.
Qing Luo Fei was pulled back to the present. Long used to never ever revealing her emotions for so many years, she was able to regain her composure very quickly. She then gave a soft laugh and said: “There was indeed such a person here before. But she secretly practised evil arts and fell into the ways of devilry. I have thrown her out from here, seen as a traitor of the Divine Temple. What she got her herself into was not made known to me and I had not thought that she would actually go down to the lower realms to commit such atrocities.”
“So I see.” Qing Yu nodded her head with a look of realization on her face. “That’s what I was thinking as well. The Temple Lord does not look like a person who would shield such a sly and treacherous snake, but is a righteous person who is upright and aboveboard.
