Old Ma nodded, but he did not say anything, just patted his shoulder lightly before standing up to pack up.
Lu Chen showed him a gentle smile.
When packing up his things and preparing to leave, Lu Chen asked Old Ma, “After you leave Clear Stream village, where have you been and what have you been doing?”
Old Ma lifted his trousers’ belt with manner, patted his chubby belly, and then walked along the mountain road with Lu Chen, “To heal my wounds, of course. After that, I went to Kunwu City on the way, and opened a small shop.”
Lu Chen paused. He glanced at him with a strange expression on his face, “You… have been making early preparations?”
Old Ma nonchalantly said, “It’s hard to call it an early preparation, but I have nothing to do anyway. I thought that you will definitely have connections with Kunlun Sect in the future somehow, so I just ran to Kunwu City.”
“It’s strange to believe you.” Lu Chen sneered, and walked forward, but a complicated light seemed to be flickering in his eyes.
Ah Tu ran past the two of them, shaking its head and wagging its tail, looking very excited. It was limping due to his leg injury while running, so the black dog seemed very awkward.
Old Ma glanced at Lu Chen and said, “What’s the matter with this puppy?”
Lu Chen said, “I picked it up on the road the other day.”
Old Ma was a little surprised, and said, “Huh? You have changed your temper? Your heart has become softer.”
Lu Chen explained, “No, I just thought that if I can’t find anything to eat when I am hungry, I will eat dog meat to satisfy my hunger.”
Old Ma: “…Pretend I never asked.”
Lu Chen continued, “By the way, since you settled down in Kunwu City, you must have used your means to study the details of Kunlun Sect a lot. I want to ask you something, does Kunlun Sect have any young disciples who are outstanding recently?”
Old Ma smiled smugly, and concentrated on thinking for a moment. He shared, “The Kunlun Sect is a great sect with many disciples, and there are quite a few talented beans. If you ask, I don’t know how to tell you, because there are just too many candidates.”
Lu Chen hesitated for a while, and said, “A few days ago, I met someone in the middle of the night.” After that, explained the whole situation about that night to Old Ma, then uttered, “‘Moonlight Slash’ is a magical power that is extremely difficult to cultivate in Kunlun Sect. It is difficult for non-talented people to cultivate this, plus she is a young woman. Maybe you will know?”
Old Ma frowned, and after pondering carefully for a while, he still shook his head, “I know the magical power of Moonlight Slash, but if it’s a peculiar young female disciple of Kunlun Sect that can cultivate this in the past few years, then I really can’t remember. Let’s go back to Kunwu City first. I’ll secretly help you inquire the people there. If there are no problems, maybe we can find her.”
As he said, he paused, “What’s wrong? You never see the woman’s face, so why are you so interested in her suddenly?”
Lu Chen smiled, put a finger in front of his eyebrows, and then slowly tapped his forehead a few times. He calmly said, “The tip of her sword was here that night. If she pierced forward, she would pierce through my head.”
The smile on Old Ma’s face suddenly faded. He looked straight at Lu Chen.
Lu Chen continued, but the expression on his face did not change to agitation. He just said indifferently, “For many years, no one has pointed a sword at my head like this.”
“Woof woof, woof woof…” Ah Tu, the dog, had already ran a long way in front of him. Turning its head, it called to them, as if urging them to go quickly.
Lu Chen quickened his pace, and at the same time said quietly, “Find her.”
Old Ma nodded. He sighed, and promised, “Alright, I get it.”
