Chen Chang Sheng suddenly remembered that he hadn’t introduced himself. “Oh yeah, my name is Chen Chang Sheng.”
“I know.” Luo Luo laughed as she replied.
Of course she knew that her master’s name was Chen Chang Sheng. Although she never suspected him, the guards who protected her in the Herb Garden had already obtained all the information regarding Cheng Chang Shen through various ways because Lou Lou wanted to be his apprentice. She knew that he came from a small town named Xi Ning, knew that he knew Tang Thirty Six, and knew how he got into the Tradition Academy. With all the information, she believed that master was definitely not a commoner.
Lou Lou remebered her actions just now and said a bit worriedly, “Master, was what I said to the teacher from the Heavenly Academy somewhat improper?”
Chen Chang Sheng thought about it “Hmm, it was actually somewhat improper. ‘What does it have to do this you’, can be said as ‘just fuck off.’”
After saying this, he laughed. Luo Luo laughed too, very happily. She thought, she is happy easily when staying with master. This was truly a very good thing, then she remembered that the people from Dong Yu General’s mansion came to visit right before the teacher from the Heavenly Academy came to visit.
“Why would people from the Dong Yu General’s Mansion come to see master?”
Chen Chang Sheng did not know how to answer. He saw the little girl’s curious look and asked, “You know the Dong Yu General’s Mansion?”
“The legendary phoenix nest, how can I not know.”
The so called phoenix nest, obviously was related to Xu You Rong’s inborn talent and bloodline.
Chen Chang Sheng asked, “You met Xu You Rong personally?”
“I really want to meet her personally.”
Luo Luo said unfortunately, “When I came to the capital, she already went to the South, so I had no chance to meet her.”
Chen Chang Sheng remembered Tang Thirty Six’s evaluation of Xu You Rong and was convinced, “Luo Luo, I know you are very strong, but don’t try to compare yourself to her. We don’t really have to be better than anyone. As long as we are improving, then we are strong.”
Luo Luo knew he misunderstood something and laughed “She is the reincarnation of a phoenix, absolutely unique. Even my family members appreciate her a lot. When I was little, they always used her to motivate me, but I had never thought of comparing me and her. I heard that she’s really nice, besides she’s somewhat cold, yet she’s much better than the Seven Rulings in the South. Actually I just want to meet her and become her friend, master, do you think that’s ok?”
Chen Chang Sheng remained silent for a while “I…don’t really have a good relationship with her.”
After hearing this, Luo Luo was a little surprised, then she thought of something “Master truly likes to lie.”
Chen Chang Sheng felt puzzled and asked, “How did I lie?”
“Master always said he was a commoner.”
“I am a commoner.”
Luo Luo covered her mouth and laughed, said, “How can a commoner…. have a bad relationship with her?”
Chen Chang Sheng was wordless because she had her point. If he’s truly a commoner, then no way he could have any relationship with Xu You Rong who was always on the top of the sky. If they did not have any relationship, then how could their relationship be bad?
After Luo Luo saw Chen Chang Shen’s expression, she stopped laughing and said seriously “Master, starting from today, I don’t like her anymore and I don’t want to be her friend anymore.”
Chen Chang Sheng felt dazed and asked, “Why?”
As a matter of course, Luo Luo said, “Because master doesn’t have a good relationship with her, then she definitely is not a good person.”
Chen Chang Sheng sighed, said, “Do you have any common sense?”
“Master is my teacher, obviously I have to listen to everything you say. Isn’t that common sense?”
Chen Chang Sheng did not know how to reply and suggest her to sit down. He then deliver his hand to her.
Luo Luo wanted to be his apprentice no matter what because of her problem with xiu xing.
Every Xiu Xing method had to have a corresponding Qi operating method. If one completely understood it, one could express the true force of his/her xiu xing method. Her problem, was that she had no way to operate the Qi inside her body according to the book.
Yet that night when the demon elite attempts to assassinate her, Chen Chang Sheng used a few words to prove that he could solve this problem. For her there was at least a possibility.
When Chen Chang Sheng put her name on the roster of the Tradition Academy, he had to be responsible for her xiu xing. He knew approximately what her problem was, so the first lesson he is giving her, obviously needed to start from this aspect. In the beginning he had to know the Qi situation in her body.
The spring wind flew in, lightly touched the pages and skirt hem. Chen Chang Sheng and Luo Luo sat on the black and bright floor facing each other. He closed up his eyes, calmed down his mind, extended his right arm, lifted his right hand, and slowly fell on her wrist.
His action was very casual, yet very accurate. His index finger and middle finger was stuck together, like a sword with forged edge, precisely fell on her pulse, yet when his fingers really fell down, his action was rather very soft, like the falling leaves in the fall, wouldn’t scare the ground under the tree at all.
Luo Luo’s eyes opened up widely, looking at his fingers placed on her wrist. She was very surprised, since childhood, she had seen so many doctors, so she knew that this seemingly common diagnosis was actually professionally done.
Was master also a great doctor?
When she was surprised about these things, Chen Chang Sheng was also very surprised because from his diagnosis, he clearly sensed that, the little girl’s pulse was so strong. He pulse was as clear as wardrum. The problem was…. the drum beat was so dense, how could the pulses be so fast!
His finger, just like the raindrop bounced back from the drum, withdrew immediately.
He looked up and stared at her eyes, looked at the clean and calm eyes, to made sure that it’s because she was too excited and therefore had a super fast heartbeat. After thinking for a while, he put his two fingers on her wrist again, but he did not expect the heartbeat he sensed was still so fast.
Luo Luo’s heart beated faster than twice a regular human.
If a regular human was keeping such fast heartbeat frequency, his face would definitely be red, sweat a lot and pass out. The person might even die from the explosion of blood vessel.
But….Luo Luo did not have any such symptom. She looked very normal, even her blood vessel appeared to be very calm and steady, why?
Chen Chang Sheng did not take back his fingers, attentively observing her pulse. He frowned more and more, until after a very long time, he saw that her heartbeat rate did not decrease as time passed, but had rather became faster and faster!
He looked up at Luo Luo’s face again, seeing that the little girl had more sweats, breathed more frequently, he knew that this time she’s really nervous.
Luo Luo indeed was very nervous, she never thought that master’s first action on the first lesson, was actually to help her diagnose. Until Chen Chang Sheng’s fingers had fell on her wrist, she remembered that her pulse was very different from common people….what could she do?
Chen Chang Sheng took back his fingers, looked at her and remained silent for a very long time before he asked “Was your pulse…..always like this?”
Luo Luo looked down, lightly replied, like a child who did something wrong, “It was like this since I was born.”
Chen Chang Sheng continued to remain silent, as if he were thinking a very complicated problem.
He faintly guessed Luo Luo’s identity.
Any human could not live for so long with such fast heartbeat frequency, of course no one could live to Luo Luo’s age.
There was only one explanation, Luo Luo was not a human.
The spring wind continued to fly in, lightly touched the pages and little girl’s skirt hem and also her wet hair.
The library was completely silent.
Luo Luo looked down, looked very pitiful.
Chen Chang Sheng looked at her, wanted to ask something, yet did not know how to open the conversation.
Luo Luo suddenly looked up, looked at him who wished to speak but stop on a second thought, and said bravely, “Master, if you ask, I will answer everything.”
Chen Chang Sheng looked at her, suddenly felt her bravery and thought for a while “Then I won’t ask.”
Luo Luo opened up her eyes, looked at him surprisingly, “Why, master? Aren’t you….curious?”
Curiosity was the itch that every intelligent being could not stop. It was the biggest temptation. For example, she’s very curious now why wouldn’t Chen Chang Sheng ask about her identity. She already said, as long as he asks, she would tell everything completely to him.
“Curiosity, sometimes aren’t good.”
Chen Chang Sheng sighed and said, “Am I your teacher?”
Luo Luo was puzzled, said, “Of course you are, master.”
Chen Chang Sheng used his hand to lightly touch her head, laughed and said, “Teacher needs to have a teacher’s appearance. If the truth was too surprising, your identity is too scary, then how will we interact in the future? How do I protect a teacher’s respect?”
Luo Luo had never thought about this reason. She dazed a bit and asked carefully, “Master, aren’t you scared?”
Chen Chang Sheng said, “This is not scary at all. It’s just that I had never encountered it before, so I’m not used to it.”
Luo Luo felt very happy after hearing this, used her head to touch his palm, like a cute little animal, said, “Master is the best!”
Probably because she thought Chen Chang Sheng, from inside to outside, every single hair was good, Luo Luo’s firm trust on him, at this moment, enlarged unimaginably, like morning sunlight bursting out. Although he didn’t ask, she still wanted to say something.
“Master, the amount of Qi in my body is not little.” She said.
Chen Chang Sheng thought about the previous pulse and knew that it was true. Her soul was extremely strong. If she had such an identity, then the amount of Qi in her body obviously wouldn’t be little. It should be at least much more than people’s in her age.
“But I don’t know how to use them.”
Luo Luo explained, “Of course my family has xiu xing method, yet the best method in my family are only suitable for males…..even if my bloodline is awakening, I won’t be able to reach the top. The most I can get to is Starfusing stage, I can never reach saint stage.”
Chen Chang Sheng felt a little wordless, thinking that if one could get into Starfusing, then he would be one of the limited elites in the continent, yet his little girl student was actually not satisfied. From this point, he could imagine how high her criteria was, or how amazing her identity was.
“If I am not the strongest, then in the future I can’t inherit my dad’s power. I then will have to marry his successor.”
Luo Luo looked at him said grimly, “ I don’t want to marry something.”
“So I want to learn human’s xiu xing method, see if there’s way to break through such limit.”
Chen Chang Sheng thought a little, then said, “No problem, we will definitely become the strongest teacher and pupil on the continent.”
Luo Luo opened up her eyes, although she had an almost blind trust on Chen Chang Sheng, yet hearing this sentence, she still dared not to believe in it.
Chen Chang Sheng thought about his own issue, looked at the direction of the Ling Yan Pavilion in the royal palace, had a mixed feeling. The things he had to do, in everyone’s eyes, were simply wishful thinking, yet he must think that way, and fight for it, because fate did not give him a second way.
“Dare to think. Before your dream comes true, never limit yourself beforehand. Never find any excuses for yourself, or reasons to fail, only so will we have the possibility to make the seemingly distant dream reality.”
“This, is my first lesson for you.”
