I’m Actually a Cultivation Bigshot - Chapter 104
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Holy Emperor and Luo Shiyu had almost reached their limits. Finally, they managed to finish eating their ice pops as soon as they could.
They felt as if they had died more than ten times. The worst part was that every time, they had to keep a calm face to conceal their true feelings.
Sigh! So difficult!
The Holy Emperor said, “Mr. Li, thank you for today. We’ll leave now.”
They had died one too many times today, blasted with lots of new insights. They had to rush home to digest them all.
“You’re welcome.” Li Ninafan smiled. Then, he continued, “Oh right, do you know if any big events are happening?”
“Big event?” The Holy Emperor paused as his face turned serious.
‘Mr. Li’s words must have deeper meanings!’
He thought quickly on his feet, trying to decipher the expert’s deeper meanings with no success. He was panicking.
After a moment, he bit his tongue and asked with a low voice, “May I know what event you’re referring to?”
Li Nianfan said, “Something like the Lunar New Year festival the other day. I want to bring Daji out to have some fun.”
He was bored staying at home all the time. Since he was here, he thought he should explore the Immortal Realm, especially now that he had Daji. They should both go and see the outside world.
The Holy Emperor’s forehead was already covered in sweat. He was too dumb! He still had no idea what the expert was implying. What did he mean by an event like the Lunar New Year festival?
Seeing that the Holy Emperor did not speak for a while, Li Nianfan smiled. “If there’s none, it’s fine for now. Just tell me when the next one comes.”
Perhaps there were only a few events like that per year. It was likely no events were happening at the moment.
The Holy Emperor nodded hastily. “Will do!”
Li Nianfan walked the Holy Emperor and Luo Shiyu to the gate. Then, he suddenly said, “Oh right, I have one more thing to trouble you with.”
He walked into a room before coming out with a small box. He handed it to Luo Shiyu. “I promised Qin Manyun this sheet music, but she hasn’t come by lately. Is it possible for you to hand this to her?”
To Qin Manyun?
Luo Shiyu and the Holy Emperor stared at the small box with red eyes.
Linxian Palace! Qin Manyun! Oh, how skilled were they to be favored by the expert!
The Linxian Palace cultivated the Insights of Music, so a music sheet from the expert was probably more precious to them than the highest grade of any of their own cultivational items!
Luo Shiyu had mixed feelings, but she did not dare harbor any ill-thought. She said respectfully, “Don’t worry, Mr. Li. I’ll bring it to her.”
“Thank you so much.” Li Nianfan smiled. He had one less thing to worry about now.
Luo Shiyu and the Holy Emperor walked out of the four-part architecture. Looking at the small box in her hand, their eyes were filled with envy.
A big opportunity!
This was definitely a big opportunity!
The value of this music sheet would be the same as his words on a piece of paper!
“Sigh, the Linxian Palace brought over their entire Thousand-Year Black Ice for Mr. Li. They’re quite good at licking the expert’s boots!” The Holy Emperor sighed with envy. “The old dude Yao Mengji pretends to be arrogant but behind the scenes, he’s just another boot licker of the expert!”
He could not help feeling bitter when he thought about how he failed to understand the deeper implications of the expert’s words. Perhaps Yao Mengji was able to grasp his deeper implications and thus, becoming the expert’s favorite!
“Shiyu, do you have any thoughts on the event the expert mentioned?” the Holy Emperor asked.
Luo Shiyu frowned. “I don’t know. But now that I think about it, it’s probably not just any ordinary event.”
The Holy Emperor sighed. “I thought so, too. Sigh, if only we can understand the expert’s words quicker, we would have become his favorite.”
Luo Shiyu said, “Father, what we have to do now is to complete the task the expert gave us.”
“You’re right. To make sure nothing goes wrong, I’ll go with you to the Linxian Palace.” The Holy Emperor nodded. Instantly, the both of them turned into light and flew straight to the Linxian Palace.
Although they knew that the music sheet was a great treasure, they did not have any thought of owning it, not even the slightest curiosity to open it.
Four hours later.
Luo Shiyu and the Holy Emperor landed outside the Linxian Palace. After passing on the message, someone came out instantly to invite them into the main hall where Qin Manyun welcomed them.
Qin Manyun smiled. “Greetings to the Holy Emperor, Shiyu. Long time no see.”
Luo Shiyu said, “Sister Manyun, we came on behalf of Mr. Li to hand you something.”
Qin Manyun’s eyes lit up. She asked hastily, “What did Mr. Li ask you to hand me? Did he say anything?”
“Mr. Li said it’s a music sheet,” Luo Shiyu said.
“Could it be the music sheet to ‘Ambush’?” Qin Manyun’s breathing quickened. Her beautiful eyes looked right into Luo Shiyu’s. “Show it to me right away!”
Recently, she had been residing in the Linxian Palace. The tune of ‘Ambush’ would be ringing in her head, on a loop. However, she did not dare to ask the expert for the music sheet.
Before the Sect Master went into retreat, he warned her not to misbehave. So, she could not visit the expert out of the blue to get the music sheet. Thus, she had been waiting silently, waiting for the right timing to visit Li Nianfan.
Who would have thought that the expert would ask them to bring it to her! How shocking!
As Luo Shiyu took out the small box, she asked curiously, “Sister Manyun, how did you do it? What made Mr. Li send this to you?”
“Of course, it wasn’t me. It was my teacher!”
Qin Manyun smiled and continued, “Since Mr. Li’s an expert, his every word contains deeper implications. My teacher would analyze every word of his until he fully understood its deeper implications, to ensure he fully understood everything the expert asked him to do so that he wouldn’t miss a thing. Perhaps that’s why Mr. Li is pleased.”
“I knew it!” The Holy Emperor sighed. A brain was a useful thing. Knowledge could indeed change one’s fate!
Luo Shiyu nodded and handed the small box to Qin Manyun.
Qin Manyun’s face lit up with a faint blush. She opened the box in anticipation.
Inside the box laid a cotton sheet. She unfolded it. Printed on it was the music score of ‘Ambush’!
Qin Manyun took in a sharp breath as her beautiful eyes skimmed through the music sheet. Her breathing quickened as a big grin appeared on her lips.
Music sheet of the Immortals! Definitely music for the Immortals!
As the Saintess of the Linxian Palace, she had learned music from a young age. She could tell from just one look that this music sheet was greater than any music sheet in the Linxian Palace. Once they learned it, they would be able to play music of the Immortals!
It took a while for her to repress the excitement rising in her.
A moment later, a flashing light passed through her mind.
Why would the expert ask them to send her the music sheet out of the blue? There must be…deeper implications!
