Chapter 428 The Cultivation Master’s Blackened Disciple (5)
Bai Weiwei had no idea that her piece of skirt cloth had already aroused Ning Yishu’s suspicion.
She was still discussing the loopholes in the side quest with the system.
“In the novel, Bai Weiwei’s character setting was stupid and evil, the epitome of a cannon fodder whose brain was eaten by a dog. In other words, as long as I maintain this impression in front of Ning Yishu, it won’t be considered a collapse in character settings?”
System: “Yes, you just have to finish your part of the story’s plot, and let Ning Yishu think that your character setting is stupid and evil. As for other people, it doesn’t matter how much you mess up the side quest or OOC.”
Bai Weiwei earnestly thought about it. “Would the original host suddenly fall in love with Ning Yishu?”
System: “Don’t think about this kind of impossible thing. In the original host’s eyes, Ning Yishu is just a half-grown child.”
Bai Weiwei suddenly thought of something. “How old am I?”
It should have taken a long time to cultivate to early Nascent Soul stage.
System: “Way over a hundred years old.”
Over a hundred… over a hundred… way over?
The system reminded her with good intentions, “Ning Yishu is only 18.”
Bai Weiwei clutched her chest. Was this the old cow grazing on tender grass1?
No, no, it was like the old demoness of Black Hill2 preying on a young boy.
The age difference was not cute at all.
System: “No big deal. In the cultivation cycle, thousands of years is a blink of an eye. Time is like a white horse crossing a gap, gone in a flash. A hundred year old cultivator is like a budding beauty3.”
Bai Weiwei: “Then what is the 18-year-old Ning Yishu? A fertilized egg?”
Bai Weiwei: “So my part in this plot is, while Ning Yishu is in Grand Heavens Mountain, to abuse him and beat him every day. Three months later, I take him to the pill furnace, but also make sure that the pill furnace’s quality is as terrible as tofu dregs so that he can escape. More importantly, when he escapes to the edge of the cliff, I need to make sure I beat him down with one hand?”
The Bai Weiwei in this story was simply an insignificant little villain.
Her part of the plot only amounted to that much.
Bai Weiwei concluded: your mom, millions of novels, and only a few tricks.
The villain targets the protagonist for no reason, the protagonist always jumps off a cliff or mountain, and runs into some great ancestor4 or exotic Qilin.
Then installing a plugin, steamrolling the villain, becoming an immortal, becoming god, and reaching the peak.
Wasn’t there anything new?
System: “Yeah, basically.”
Bai Weiwei: “What if, while I beat him, I kiss him?”
System: “Collapse in character settings.”
Bai Weiwei: “And if I was forced to do it?”
Bai Weiwei: “My character is unscrupulous, right? Ruthless and cruel, right?”
System: This was the first time it heard such a refreshing and unconventional way of describing oneself.
Bai Weiwei: “Suppose that I accidentally get poisoned, ah, or enter qi deviation, and I need pure yang energy to relieve it. Isn’t that being forced to push down Ning Yishu, and not a collapse in character settings?”
The system was dumbstruck. How was it that the host could think of this?
When most people hear that they can’t OOC, wouldn’t they strictly follow the plot and stick to the original character settings?
Bai Weiwei: “In any case, doing it because I had no choice, it can’t be treated as being OOC, right?”
System: “How do you want to be forced into it? Feed yourself spring medicine5?”
Bai Weiwei: “That idea’s not bad.”
Bai Weiwei thought back on her physical condition. “I’m a water single spiritual root, and my cultivation method is the Water Spirit Scripture. And this kind of cultivation method has a disadvantage; when my cultivation reaches a bottleneck, my internal qi will go out of control, and my body temperature will drop. Only pure yang or maybe fire spiritual energy can help me break through.”
This was also the reason why, three months later, the original host wanted to turn Ning Yishu into a pill.
Therefore, as long as she destroyed her body’s spiritual energy, she would fall into a crisis.
She could openly and frankly hug and kiss Ning Yishu, but still fool him into thinking that she was using him.
Kiss like usual, she didn’t believe that the favorability wouldn’t rise.
 老牛吃嫩草: cradle robbing LOL; when there’s a significant age gap between two people in a relationship
 黑山老妖: black + hill + old + demon; the villain in 倩女幽魂 (A Chinese Ghost Story). Very old.
 豆蔻: a girl’s teenage years (like 13-14); maidenhood; budding beauty. Imagine my surprise when “cardamom girl” showed up in my translation engine.
 The original text said 老爷爷. I’m assuming this doesn’t mean a literal, blood-related grandfather, but rather some ancient master/mentor figure
 The generic brand name for Viagra 😉 JK, it’s an aphrodisiac, but like, I’m sure some of you knew that already
