It seemed like the relationship between the two of them as siblings before was really good. Either way, having possessed his younger sister’s body, she could not disregard her handsome elder brother. Lei Lei hurried to the window. She leaned and looked out then quickly closed the windows and said nervously, “What are you doing here? Be careful, it would be bad if Xiao Bai found out!”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue sat down, “You’re worried about Elder Brother?”

Having been in Bai Sheng Shan Village for a while, Lei Lei had already discovered that the defence in the village was actually very tight. No wonder he had to ask Star Minister Gu Wan to come in person last time to take her out. Now that the young master was afraid another incident would occur, he had specially sent additional guards here to the north. To be able to avoid so many martial arts elites and enter the village, her handsome elder brother was indeed quite capable.

Turning around and putting a latch on the door, Lei Lei felt more relieved, “There are many people guarding, it’s dangerous.”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue watched as she did all this then laughed again, “You are indeed my good younger sister.”

Their relationship as a brother and sister was a fact. Although “Xiao Bai” was not bad, there was not much progress yet and it was different for her brother. If something happened, he would definitely protect her unconditionally. Besides, this man was a devil and if they were found out, it would be horrible if she was accused of being a spy! Lei Lei hugged his neck and between joking and smiling obsequiously, she said, “You’re my elder brother, if I don’t care about you, who would I care about? From now on, don’t come in so casually, let’s agree on a date and place to meet.”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue took her hand and said softly, “There would be no harm in that. You’ve stayed in the village for so long, have you found anything?”

If she said she found nothing, he might not believe it. Lei Lei deliberately thought about it, “The old study in the east courtyard seems very strange.”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue nodded as expected, “You can tell too. It was the study that Xiao Yuan used when he was still alive. Now the guards there are all first-class elites and there are about 12 or 13 of them. Even I can’t go in easily.”

In fact, apart from the young master, no one could enter the study room. This matter was no secret in Bai Sheng Shan Village. Lei Lei also found it strange. Now that she knew there were special elites guarding it secretly, she could not help but be more surprised. An ordinary study room was guarded so tightly. The only possibility was that…

“Do you suspect that the cultivation method for Xiao Xiao’s Phoenix Crying Blade is in there?”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue did not express any opinion.

Lei Lei looked at him for a moment, then turned to face him, “Elder Brother, there’s no end to learning martial arts in the world. You’re already so good, do you have to practise that?”

Shang Guan Qiu yue shook his head, “Martial arts has its own factions. The Xiao Xiao’s Phoenix Crying Blade must be wielded with the most powerful and pure internal yang power which is contrary to what I’ve learned. Why would I use up my true energy to practise it?”

Discovering that he did not seem to lie, Lei Lei was surprised, “Then you want it for…”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue said, “The Xiao Xiao’s Phoenix Crying Blade claims to uphold justice. Xiao Bai has obstructed us several times, how could I let him keep it any longer? Besides, I need to use it as a testimony.”

Seeing that she was puzzled, he smiled, “The matter should begin with Nan Xing He, the Southern Leader back then.

Lei Lei remembered the name, “The leader of the demonic cult? Didn’t he die under the Phoenix Crying Blade wielded by Xiao Min, the ancestor of the Xiao family?

“It’s the Xing Yue sect. Those who claim to be righteous labelled it as the demonic cult, why are you talking nonsense?!” Shang Guan Qiu Yue reproached, “They set a trap back then and killed the Southern Leader. Xing Yue sect’s vitality was greatly damaged and was divided into Chuan Qi Valley and our Qian Yue Cave. But the two factions had an agreement. Whoever killed the descendant of the Xiao family first and destroyed the Xiao Xiao’s Phoenix Crying Blade cultivation method to avenge the Southern Leader, the other faction will bow and submit to them and Xing Yue sect will be unified again.”

Handsome elder brother was quite ambitious! Lei Lei was dumbfounded.

His slender and beautiful fingers lifted her chin. Shang Guan Qiu Yue looked into her eyes, “It’s related to my great plan for our faction. You don’t want to help Elder Brother?”

His friendly gaze was bewitching. Lei Lei quietly pinched herself with one hand to keep her mind clear, “But Xiao Bai has already practised the Xiao Xiao’s Phoenix Crying Blade cultivation method. Even if the method was stolen, it won’t be lost either.”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue released her, “That’s why I still need to take the Xuan Bing Stone.”

Lei Lei was confused, “Xuan Bing Stone?”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue said, “Xiao Xiao’s Phoenix Crying Blade was created by Xiao Sheng. It was famous all over the world at that time. Unexpectedly, after practising it, he found that this mental technique had demonic implications and the more times it was used, the easier it was to be possessed by demons. So he did everything possible to find a solution and finally, he found an extremely rare black ice stone that would suppress demonic nature when worn. So although Xiao Xiao’s Phoenix Crying Blade was powerful, even when the Xiao family was at its most prosperous, it was always only passed on to the eldest son because of this secret.”

Lei Lei suddenly asked, “Is the Xuan Bing Stone blue?”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue nodded.

The young master did wear a light blue pendant. She discovered this when flirting with him. No wonder he always wore this ornament when he had always dressed plain and simple. It turned out there was a reason for it.

Lei Lei was secretly started, “How did you know?”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue smiled, “Is there anything Elder Brother doesn’t know?”

Lei Lei began to worry. That was an important thing that “Xiao Bai” wore on his body, how could she get it easily? Moreover, without the stone, “Xiao Bai” would be possessed by demons in the future. That would not do.

“Has your heart softened?” Shang Guan Qiu Yue pulled her into his arms and rested his nose on her nose, just like a brother who doted on his younger sister, “You have the kindest heart, but Xiao Bai would not think so. If he knew who you are, he would never be merciful. You think that they’re all good people because they speak of justice? At the beginning, they conspired to plot against Leader Nan and used all means to do so.”

With her thoughts seen through again, Lei Lei did not dare to be careless again, “How did they harm Master Nan?”

“Elder Brother will tell you when we have time,” Shang Guan Qiu Yue pushed her away and got up, “Since Xiao Bai wears the Xuan Bing Stone with him all the time, you need not rush to get it. Just find a way into study and have a look.”

Lei Lei was silent.

Shang Guan Qiu Yue looked at her for a while, then sighed, “Forget it. If you don’t like doing these things, then come back with me now.”

If she would not be a spy and steal, then she had no need to stay here? Lei Lei rolled her eyes and was in a quandary. Go back? Although this man was a first-class handsome man, he was her elder brother after all. How could he compare with “Xiao Bai”? *** was not conducive to the inheritance of good genes, no way! She wanted to follow “Xiao Bai”. She would promise first then talk later. There would always be a way.

Making up her mind, Lei Lei pulled him immediately and put on a firm appearance, “Okay, I’ll find a way to get into the study.”

With a smile in his eyes like bright spring flowers, Shang Guan Qiu Yue touched her face, “That’s right, no matter how good they are, you’re an outsider after all. Only Elder Brother will treat you sincerely.”

It would be a pity to not eat tofu delivered to your doorstep. Lei Lei hugged and rubbed against him, “What about your Duo Qing Veil from last time? It’s so beautiful, I want to see!”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue had a faint smile that was not really a smile, “That’s not possible.”

“Show me, show me!”


Lei Lei was angry and let him go, “Stingy! Isn’t it just a Duo Qing Veil? Even the name sounds like something used by women. What’s a man doing using women’s things?! I don’t want it!”

Shang Guan Qiu Yue stopped coaxing her and just looked at her, laughing, “Be careful when acting.”

He opened the door to leave and was gone in a flash.

In fact, her handsome elder brother was not as easy to bully as “Xiao Bai’. No wonder it was said that “A priest climbs a foot, the devil climbs ten”. Still, the devil was the most handsome. Lei Lei looked at the door as she came to this conclusion.

To the east, there was a small courtyard. Hidden in the lush evergreen forest, there was an old study room used by the old master, Xiao Yuan, when he was still alive. Although Lei Lei had no intention to actually steal the cultivation method for Shang Guan Qiu Yue, she was curious so she pretended to help clean up and tried to get closer twice. Each time, someone came out to stop her. This reinforced her thoughts even more — there was indeed something up!

It was so tightly guarded. Was this not clearly telling others that there was something important inside?!

“Xiao Bai” did not look like such a stupid person…
