Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Sheng Xiao was about to go back to the hotel to rest when he saw Lin Jiansheng returning with a familiar-looking young lady behind him. Sheng Xiao was surprised when he recognized Yu Huang.
Sheng Xiao bowed to Lin Jiansheng and asked, “Mr. Lin, what happened?”
Before Yu Huang could think of a way to explain herself, she heard Lin Jiansheng say, “It’s like this. Miss Yu Huang wants to ask about her failure to awaken her beast form. This child has the talent to be a Beast Tamer. I can’t bear to see her talent being drowned like this, so I want to perform another deep cleansing spirit for her and see if it can help her awaken her beast form.”
“After all, there are fewer and fewer new Beast Tamers nowadays. If we can have one more Beast Tamer, our country will have more hope.” Sheng Xiao must have understood this.
As expected, when Sheng Xiao heard that Lin Jiansheng was willing to do a thorough purifying for Yu Huang, his expression became solemn.
Sheng Xiao bowed to Lin Jiansheng again. “I am impressed by your kindness.” He looked at Yu Huang and said, “Little Yu, this is a rare opportunity. You must grasp it.”
Yu Huang hurriedly nodded.
“I’ll take my leave then. See you later, Mr. Lin.” Sheng Xiao walked past them and was about to leave when he suddenly turned around and called Yu Huang. “Little Yu!”
Yu Huang stopped and turned to look at Sheng Xiao. Her eyes were filled with confusion.
Sheng Xiao said to her, “Give me your contact number.”
Yu Huang was confused.
Were they very close?
Sheng Xiao was the young master of the Sheng family. He was the disciplinary executive of Divine Realm Academy. He was also the most respected Supreme Master Beast Tamer. On the other hand, Sheng Xiao was just a disfigured commoner. They would not have a deeper relationship in the future.
Despite her confusion, Yu Huang still took the phone and typed in her phone number. It was necessary for her to get to know a few more big shots if she wanted to take down Yin Mingchong.
After Yu Huang returned the phone to Sheng Xiao, she left with Lin Jiansheng.
Sheng Xiao asked for her phone number not because of their personal relationship or favoritism, but purely because of justice. If Yu Huang was really poisoned by Spirit Restraining Parasite, it would mean that the six families owed her.
When Sheng Xiao went back this time, he would look into the information about the Spirit Restraining Parasite. If he was sure that Yu Huang was really poisoned by the Spirit Restraining Parasite, he would do everything he could to help her solve the problem and help her awaken as a beast tamer.
Sheng Xiao touched the pen on his chest and thought to himself, ‘It’s not that I think she’s as good as a cactus and that’s why I want to help her, but I just cherish her talent.’
Yu Huang walked along the winding and quiet corridor with Lin Jiansheng. This was her first time entering the inner part of the Purifying Spirit Academy. She looked at the carvings on both sides of the corridor curiously. Suddenly, she heard Lin Jiansheng ask, “When did you establish a relationship with Sheng Xiao?”
When the phrase ‘establish a relationship’ came out of Lin Jiansheng’s mouth, it made Yu Huang feel that it sounded out of place. It made her feel like he was being disrespectful to her.
Yu Huang rubbed her nose and explained, “I didn’t establish a relationship with him. We only met a few times.”
Lin Jiansheng’s lips curled up. He stroked his beard and said, “Sheng Xiao is very capable. If you can win him over and become the Young Madam of the Sheng family, you won’t have to worry about anything in the future.”
Yu Huang was unconvinced and subconsciously replied in an even more arrogant manner, “Isn’t becoming stronger than him and becoming the leader of a clan better than being the Young Madam of the Sheng clan?”
Lin Jiansheng was stunned.
He stopped in his tracks and narrowed his eyes at Yu Huang. With a nonchalant smile, he asked, “Become the head of a clan? What, little girl, are you planning to build a Yu Clan? Make the six great cultivation clans into the seven great cultivation clans?”
As soon as he finished speaking, he even laughed lightly and sighed. “A newborn calf isn’t afraid of a tiger because it’s young and cocky!”
Yu Huang stared at Lin Jiansheng’s face and asked seriously, “Dean Lin, if I successfully awaken my beast form, do you think it’s possible?”
When Dean Lin thought of Yu Huang’s powerful and terrifying beastly energy, he instantly pursed his lips and did not speak.
After a while, he said, “So you came to me with an old friend’s token, to ask me to remove the parasite from your body and help you become a Beast Tamer?”
This time, Yu Huang was truly shocked. “Even you know that I was poisoned?”
Lin Jiansheng snorted and ridiculed, “That old thing knew about the existence of the Spirit Restraining Parasite because he peeked at my notes. Otherwise, how would a Beast Tamer know about the things only a Purifying Spirit Master would know?!”
So that was how it was.
Yu Huang hypocritically praised Lin Jiansheng. “Dean Lin is knowledgeable. I’m impressed.”
“Shut up. I find your hypocritical demeanor annoying. You’re just like that old fart.” After saying that, Lin Jiansheng continued to walk forward. As he walked, he said, “The person who created the Spirit Restraining Parasite was a Rank 9 Purifying Spirit Master. That person created this thing to destroy the future of Beast Tamers. Since he wanted to destroy Beast Tamers, he would not leave behind a solution.”
“If you’re looking for me, there’s no use.”
Hearing this, Yu Huang did not despair. She asked curiously, “Why did that person want to destroy Beast Tamers?”
A complicated expression appeared on Lin Jiansheng’s face. For a moment, he didn’t know what to say.
“I’m sure you know that every single Purifying Spirit Master possesses an incomparably powerful Spiritual Strength. Furthermore, those with powerful Spiritual Strength often possess powerful beast natures and are able to awaken their beast form.”
Yu Huang nodded. “I know.”
Lin Jiansheng narrowed his eyes and looked at the crystal ball above his head. He sighed in disappointment and frustration. “However, there are a portion of people with strong Spiritual Strength who are born without a beast form and are destined to be unable to become Beast Tamers.. They are half-finished products abandoned by God.”
