Outside of the cabin, a gentle breeze makes its way across the forest and the leaves shook in harmony. The only thing out of the ordinary with the scene was a young girl standing on a tree branch, peering down on the cabin's door.
That person was Yuan Qiang.
The person she had fallen in love with had married another woman right in front of her. The very thought of that made her grind her teeth in anger and frustration.
Yuan Qiang was currently standing on a thick branch, hundreds of meters in the air. The trunk that she was grasping with her right hand exploded in fine dust. In the blink of an eye, she was gone from where she was standing as if she was never there.
Jiang Chen was oblivious to his current predicament about Yuan Qiang. He had just told Fen Tang to rest early before he went into another room. As Jiang Chen was closing the door behind him, she had a face filled with disappointment.
Jiang Chen went into the other room and broke into a smile.
These days haven't been easy!
"System, use Book of Alchemy."
[Comsuming Book Of Alchemy...]
Streams of information poured into Jiang Chen's mind in a flash. Thunder god vine, yellow-spring flower, soul lotus, blood ginseng...
Even the current champion in refining pills couldn't hold a candle against the current Jiang Chen in terms of knowledge! Reciting with his eyes closed? Easy. Curing any type of illness? Piece of cake. Pill refining without a cauldron? Once I get a pill flame, no one can stand in my way!
The only problem that Jiang Chen currently is facing was the materials. Although he has the knowledge of what and where the ingredients are, his cultivation level won't allow him to easily get these herbs. Without the various herbs to create medical pills, the application of his knowledge can be said as nonexistent.
"I really need to focus on my cultivation now..."
Jiang Chen grimaced and began to sort the new knowledge inside of his brain.
An hour later, Jiang Chen opens his eyes and blew outwards. A smile cracked across his face as he got up and went out of the room.
Fen Tang was already outside setting up the table for dinner.
She looked up from what she was doing and had a big blush on her face.
"You don't have to address me like that if you're uncomfortable. You can just call me by my name for now."
Jiang Chen sat down across from Fen Tang and the two began eating.
Since Fen Tang was a princess and didn't have much experience with household chores growing up, the dishes she made had a treacherous amount of sugar or salt and really burnt.
Even so, Jiang Chen just ate the meal without any complaints.
From his previous life, you get what you got or else you would go hungry for the day. Life as an orphan was a harsh one as you constantly had to search for your next meal and you might not be so lucky. Occasions and holidays, such as Christmas and Thanksgiving, were the best as better leftovers would be thrown out.
Jiang Chen looked up and saw Fen Tang happily picking up bits of food and placing it into his bowl. Since he was tricking her into falling in love with him, Jiang Chen had a guilty conscious as if a knife seemed to be stabbing him in the heart. Even though he only married Fen Tang for completing the mission, he felt morally obligated to do the right thing.
I can't just leave, right?
"What's wrong, Jiang Chen?"
Jiang Chen shook his head in a hurry and proceeded to eat.
On Yuan Qiang's side, Grandpa Bai had just come back from his investigation on Jiang Chen.
They were currently located in a secluded mansion which Yuan Qiang's grandfather had left her right after his death. The whole mansion has an uplifting feeling as if it has come straight from a fairy tale. The main gates were grandiose and the gardens were well kept. Grandpa Bai walked down the stone path through the garden before arriving at a golden throne room.
Yuan Qiang was walking around in the throne room before she heard a light step from afar.
"Little Qiang, I have some stuff about the boy."
"Please tell me quickly, Grandpa Bai."
Yuan Qiang quickly got up and excitedly ran up to the old man in anticipation. She had a desperate look on her face, as she was running towards Grandpa Bai. Even though he noticed this look, Grandpa Bai didn't say anything.
"So it turned out that his name, Jiang Chen, was fake. Jiang Chen's real name is Tai Yang. He is part of the Tai Family and was released from exile just a few months ago. Immediately after that, he joined the Divine Sect as an outer disciple but offended the son of the headmaster and he was sent to a branch sect, the Sky Divine Sect. He participated in Heaven's Accent and managed to place first as well as improved the relations of the Sky Divine Sect with other sects drastically."
As Yuan Qiang hears more, the smile on her face became more and more pronounced.
"There also seemed to be traces of his aura within a castle which I assumed that he destroyed. That's all I have regarding him."
Grandpa Bai's cultivation level and reputation allowed him to quickly gather the information within just a few hours. The only thing that was wrong with what he had said was that Tai Yang was no longer Tai Yang but Jiang Chen.
"That's fine. Can you tell me his house number in the sect, Grandpa Bai?"
"Sure, it's house number 121. Why do you want to know this?"
Yuan Qiang smiled as she lightly skipped towards the door.
"I'm gonna surprise him when he gets back!"
Before Grandpa Bai can stop her, Yuan Qiang disappeared from his sight.
"Sigh... I hope I made the right choice, Senior Qiang..."
