In the next few days, Qin Yi stayed indoors and made pills wholeheartedly.
He seemed to have forgotten that the entire crown prince mansion had been granted to him, and he still lived in that guest courtyard. Except that Li Qinglin’s family members moved away, and the mansion became much deserted, nothing seemed to have changed.
Ming He lived in another guest house in the courtyard. She spent most of her time comprehending the sword array. It seemed that Liu Su’s sword array was really a good reference for her. It was indeed as she said before. He refined his pills and she comprehended her Tao. Even though they were under the same roof, there was no intersection between them at all.
It seemed that Ming He didn’t need to eat, bath, and defecate after reaching her current cultivation level, so there wasn’t even a chance for an awkward moment. The kind of ambiguous scene like “Living with Ming He” was even impossible. When they occasionally met outside the house, Ming He would bow at him, and then they walked past each other.
Qin Yi couldn’t even know how to talk to her. The sense of distance like the Milky Way hanging in the sky did not disappear because of “cohabitation”. Instead, as long as she didn’t speak, the distance she gave was so far that one could process his words.
No one would speak to a star that was an unknown number of light-years away.
Now, he could slightly understand Dong Huazi’s pain in the balls when she stayed in the Longevity Temple. He knew that bootlicking her would give endless benefits, but he didn’t what to do when standing in front of her. If he begged for her protection, he would be despised. If he were to discuss Tao with her, he didn’t have that kind of knowledge. She didn’t even pay for the accommodation. Instead, her big aoe array killed a bunch of his beastkins.
The more he thought about it, the more he sympathized with this boss. He was probably the most unlucky boss in history.
Fortunately, Qin Yi never thought about talking to Ming He at all. Ming He was too beautiful, and the Taoist robe was a typical uniform temptation. Qin Yi always felt that too much contact was not good. It would cause Li Qingjun to be suspicious, right? Therefore, he felt that this attitude of not bothering each other was very comfortable.
“By the way, Stick Stick, you are well-informed, have you ever seen the legendary eyes that purely appreciate beautiful things without a trace of obscenity?”
Liu Su, “What is that?”
“Why do I hear that a beautiful woman will always go through such a thing? Like others look at her with evil eyes, but she especially admires a certain person’s eyes, so she confirms that this is the person she is waiting for?”
“What nonsense are you talking about…”
Qin Yi sighed, “I always feel that my eyes belong to the latter.”
Liu Su finally understood. It couldn’t help laughing, “Just a few glances, and you want Ming He to think this and that? Did your head get hit by a stick?”
“…I’m sure you didn’t hit me.” Qin Yi smiled, “It’s just a joke. I don’t have any thoughts about her.”
Liu Su doubted, “Really no thoughts?”
“I’ve told you. My eyes are purely admiring beautiful things.”
Liu Su said, “Then look at me.”
Qin Yi cast a disgusted look.
“That’s right, this gaze is very good. I just like the way you put medicine on me while disgusting me.”
“Damn…” Qin Yi sat down with the pounded herbs and laid Liu Su flat on the cushion.
Although everyone had something on their minds these days, Qin Yi sometimes felt very comfortable in the current life as if he had returned to the old house in Immortal Track Village with Liu Su… At that time, he and Liu Su were wary of each other, but now their relationship had improved. They could make casual jokes, which was much more comfortable than when they were in the Immortal Track Village.
But Qin Yi also felt a little strange.
Li Qingjun had been very busy recently, so she rarely came to see him. But he didn’t have the eagerness and unbearable feeling that he had when falling in love. He just focused on refining pills and cultivating. His moods and emotions didn’t affect his calm mental state. Only when he was free, he would miss her, which made him feel that it was normal.
But this doesn’t look like falling in love right? Qin Yi, who experienced this for the first time, was not very sure. Hmph, but those super scholars who got into relationships did not affect their studies right? So are the romance novels deceiving me?
“Stick Stick.” He slowly applied herbal medicine to Liu Su and asked, “Am I a little too heartless?”
“Huh?” Liu Su was enjoying, so it couldn’t react immediately, “What do you mean?”
“I don’t seem to have the feeling that I want to cling to Qingjun all the time. Shouldn’t man and woman in love always miss each other?”
“How do I know? I didn’t…” Speaking halfway through, Liu Su felt that it had misspoken, which ruined its experienced image. It immediately stopped talking.
Qin Yi was lost in thought, so he didn’t notice.
Liu Su breathed a sigh of relief, then switched to a confident tone, “I think it’s quite normal. Since when is Li Qingjun clinging to you?”
Qin Yi was taken aback for a moment. It’s really true…
“Maybe it’s not the time.” Liu Su casually said, “Now you both have a lot of things in your mind. If you both can still be lovey-dovey, that is really heartless. Besides, Li Qingjun is not suitable to participate in politics at all. I’m afraid that she is exhausted now, so how does she have time to think about you.”
“Why do I seem to hear a sense of gloating?” Qin Yi finally regained his consciousness.
“Did I?” Liu Su refused to admit, “You have been restless recently. You think too much.”
“How am I restless? The success rate of refining pills is more than 90%? It’s better than before.”
“Why are you not serious when applying the soul bind grass for me.” Liu Su educated, “You have to focus when you do things. Now you can think about other things when you are applying the medicine, then you can also think wildly and go mad when you are training in the future. You must know that the embankment of a thousand miles was destroyed by an ant nest, so be vigilant…”
Qin Yi felt that there was some truth to it, so he acknowledged it and applied the medicine honestly.
Liu Su let out a comfortable sigh.
One mace really did take much time to smear, so the medicine was spread evenly quickly. Qin Yi put it nicely and asked, “Is it really useful for you to smear like this? What you want is the nourishment of the soul, not the damage to the body.”
“This stick is not my body. I want you to apply it evenly so that the power of the medicine can be distributed evenly. I can absorb soul power from all angles.” Liu Su said suddenly, “Hey, although this herb has mediocre medicinal power, it is very beneficial to me who didn’t receive external help for many years like rain after a long drought. I didn’t even have the strength to knock you before, but now I can knock you to death while you are sleeping at any time. Aren’t you afraid?”
Qin Yi flicked the spike casually as if teasing a domestic cat, “Good Stick, don’t be arrogant.”
“…” If Liu Su was really a cat, it would probably fluff up.
“Qin Yi!” Li Qingjun’s shout came from outside. Qin Yi was overjoyed and went out to greet her.
But he saw Li Qingjun coming with a haggard look. Qin Yi stepped forward to support her and asked, “What’s wrong?”
“It’s nothing. It’s just so difficult…” Li Qingjun was not only haggard, but she just collapsed on Qin Yin, “It turns out that kingdom affairs are so troublesome…”
Liu Su really got it right.
This girl is not suitable for this at all. She is just being forced to learn. The torture may not necessarily lead to any growth.
Qin Yi pursed her lips. The thought of taking her far away from the South Li Kingdom was a little stronger. Of course, he wouldn’t show it. He just took out the elixir made from the main material of purple lotus root, “This elixir is done. Melt it when you go back, then you soak it in a medicinal bath. It can nourish true qi and relieve fatigue.”
Li Qingjun leaned over her head and pecked the elixir away. The cute and lazy appearance was somewhat similar to Ye Ling.
Qin Yi couldn’t help rubbing her head. Finally, he couldn’t help but tentatively say, “Since you are not suitable for state affairs, why are you forcing yourself?”
Li Qingjun entered the courtyard and lay down on the stone table, “No way… You don’t know how bad South Li Kingdom is already… The treasury’s money is almost not enough for the military pay… There are many, many… Anyway, it’s a mess. It may not be possible to solve in a few years. Mang Zhan also got away this time. Dong Huazi knew our situation very well, so he must have told Mang Zhan everything… There is an enemy who knows our current state. How can I give up…”
Qin Yi was silent.
