“Shifu, this disciple promised to introduce you to the girl that this disciple fell in love with .   This is her, her name is Yu Er,” says Gong Sang Mo .

“En, shifu has heard of her long before even meeting her,” says Sheng Xue Tian Zun meaningfully .

“Shifu, Yu Er is smart, kind, beautiful, talented and extraordinary .   Her grasp on martial arts is very high and her medical skill is unrivalled .   She is truly one of a kind,” Gong Sang Mo begins listing Yun Qian Yu’s virtues .

The corner of Yun Qian Yu’s lips twitches .   Even she did not know that she has that many advantages .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun narrows his eyes at Gong Sang Mo, “Might as well adds that she is as beautiful as a celestial figure and can topple cities . ”

Gong Sang Mo looks at Yun Qian Yu before shamelessly saying, “I don’t have to say that part; anyone with eyes can see that . ”

The corner of Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s lips tremble; he is so in love .   He turns to Yun Qian Yu, “What do you think about what Sang Mo said, yatou?”

Yun Qian Yu looks at Gong Sang Mo, “Since he likes me, it is natural that he only sees the good parts about me . ”

Gong Sang Mo laughs .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun gives Yun Qian Yu a probing look, “Then, what do you think about Sang Mo?”

Hearing that, she turns to Gong Sang Mo while smiling, “Just one word: Silly . ”

“Oh,” Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s eyes twinkle in appreciation .   He plays with his long and white eyebrows as he looks at Gong Sang Mo .   “This is the first time a girl has ever called Mo Er ‘silly . ”

Gong Sang Mo understands why Yun Qian Yu calls him that .   The smile on his face deepens .

“In what way is Mo Er silly?  Come and tell me,” asks Sheng Xue Tian Zun in interest .

Yun Qian Yu blinks .   Even a 100-year old man loves to gossip?

“He liked me for three years and never said a word .   And then, he knew he would die and he still did his best to protect me .   He knew it would get him into trouble yet he still killed a junior in order to avenge me .   What is he, if not stupid?” replies Yun Qian Yu seriously as she lists the reasons one by one .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun laughs while playing with his beard, “Correct .   He would be an idiot if he only did one of those, and he actually did all three . ”

When Yun Qian Yu raised the topic of Long Xiang Luo, Gong Sang Mo quickly looked at his teacher .   However, he is not looking at him .   His eyes are trained on Yun Qian Yu .

“Do you think we should punish Mo Er for turning his back against the sect for you?” asks Sheng Xue Tian Zun .

She naturally does not want that to happen .   However, she is not a part of this mountain .   Will her opinion even count?

“Tian Zun, if I say no, will it be no?” asks Yun Qian Yu instead of replying .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun smiles at her, “Of course not .   However, I am interested to hear your opinion about the matter . ”

“Would you like to hear the truth or a lie?” blinks Yun Qian Yu prettily .

“The truth, of course!” replies Sheng Xue Tian Zun without hesitation .

“But truths are often what one would not like to hear .   Are you sure, Tian Zun?” asks Yun Qian Yu hesitantly .  

“Of course!” replies Sheng Xue Tian Zun patiently .

“If you did not like what I am about to say, I hope you will not kick me out of the mountain, Tian Zun,” says Yun Qian Yu uneasily .  

“I will not .   I have lived for over a century, I will not be petty towards a little girl like you,” replies Sheng Xue Tian Zun calmly .

“Then, I will tell the truth,” says Yun Qian Yu .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun nods .

“I naturally think that it is inappropriate to punish Sang Mo,” says Yun Qian Yu .

It is something that Sheng Xue Tian Zun expected to hear .

“Whyever so?  Didn’t Mo Er broke the rule?” asks Sheng Xue Tian Zun .

“Wouldn’t this be a losing transaction if you punish him?” Yun Qian Yu rolls her eyes .

“In what way?” Sheng Xue Tian Zun finds Yun Qian Yu really interesting .

“Punishing an excellent disciple over a morally questionable one, wouldn’t you be the one suffering a loss, Tian Zun?” questions Yun Qian Yu earnestly .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun is momentarily taken aback before bursting out in laughter .

“I will indeed suffer a loss, but sometimes, it still has to be done . ”

Yun Qian Yu’s heart sinks .   That means that Gong Sang Mo truly cannot escape this punishment .

“Then, can I ask one thing of you?” asks Yun Qian Yu .

“It is impossible to beg for mercy for Sang Mo,” says Sheng Xue Tian Zun without giving her the chance to speak .

“I am not going to ask for mercy for Sang Mo,” says Yun Qian Yu earnestly .

The smile on Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s face fades: Sang Mo is about to be punished for what he did for her, and she is actually in the mood to ask for something else?

“What is it?” Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s voice is no longer as amiable .

“Can I bear the punishment along with Sang Mo?” Yun Qian Yu naturally notices the change in his demeanor .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun is taken aback when he hears that .   Turns out that he has misunderstood her .   But still, it is too early to make a conclusion about her real personality .

“What if the punishment is Nine Deaths for One Life?  Are you still willing to take it with him?” Sheng Xue Tian Zun carefully eyes Yun Qian Yu’s expression .

“Yes,” replies Yun Qian Yu without hesitation .

When Sheng Xue Tian Zun sees the earnest look on Yun Qian Yu’s face, his heart unwittingly moves .   Mo Er have good eyesight .

Gong Sang Mo’s heartbeat picks up it’s rate when he hears that .   He pulls Yun Qian Yu up, regardless of whether or not his shifu still wants to speak, “Shifu, we have been on the road for half a month and have only arrived tonight .   Yu Er need to rest properly .   I will bring her to you again tomorrow to chat .   As for the punishment, it is not a big deal .   It’s not like shifu will heavily punish this disciple .   Let’s not scare Yu Er . ”  Gong Sang Mo sends his teacher a look .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun understands that his disciple does not want Yun Qian Yu to know what kind of punishment is awaiting him .   He does not want her to share it with him as well .

Sheng Xue Tan Zun sighs as he looks at his love-sick favourite disciple .   He is just the same as that father of his!

“No, Tian Zun has not promised me yet,” Yun Qian Yu refuses to leave .   This is the only way she can quietly support Gong Sang Mo .

“Yu Er… . ” 

Just as Gong Sang Mo is about to figure out how to best coax Yun Qian Yu into leaving, he can hear a voice from outside, “Sang Mo!”

“Third Senior Brother!”  Gong Sang Mo stiffens .   It is so late, what is his Third Senior Brother doing here?  He originally planned to visit him tomorrow .

Yun Qian Yu remembers this Senior Brother as being Long Xiang Luo’s shifu .   Don’t tell her he is here to settle the score?

Something clicks inside Yun Qian Yu’s head and she immediately gets up and stands in front of Gong Sang Mo, blocking him from whatever is to come .

When Sheng Xue Tian Zun sees that, his heart is eased a little .   At least it is not one-sided .

Qing Ling Xian walks in with large strides .   When he sees what is going on, he snaps at Yun Qian Yu, “This little girl!  What are you doing, blocking Sang Mo from me?”  Then, something dawns on him .   “Don’t tell me you think I am here to seek revenge?”  The look on his face turns ugly .

Yun Qian Yu blinks at him .   So, he isn’t here for revenge?  Why is he looking so urgent, then?

“You really thought so?” demanded Qing Ling Xian .

Gong Sang Mo pulls Yun Qian Yu backwards, “Third Senior Brother, Yu Er was just worried for me .   Please do not mind her . ”

Yun Qian Yu looks at this hasty-looking Senior Brother in confusion .   Here is another with white beard; needless to ponder, his Second Senior Brother ought to also be an old man with white beard .

“This Senior Brother of yours is old and experienced; he will not be petty towards a little girl,” Qing Ling Xian rolls his eyes skyward .   “But still, even if you want to kill that unfilial disciple, you should have just kidnap her and sends her to me .   I will do the dirty work for you .   Why did you have to personally use your own hands!”

“I was in a rush,” Gong Sang Mo’s heart warms up .   How could he possibly let his Senior Brother kill his own disciple?

“That unfilial girl was too calculating, too treacherous .   Death was too easy for her,” says Qing Ling Xian angrily .

After saying all that, Qing Ling Xian finally seems to remembers that his shifu is inside the room .   He bows towards his shifu to beg for Gong Sang Mo, “Shifu, no one else really knows about this matter .   Perhaps, you can… . . ”

Sheng Xue Tian Zun cuts him off, “What do you think?”

Qing Ling Xian immediately grows quiet .   Everyone who commits a mistake is punished in this sect, no matter how many contributions they have .  

Yun Qian Yu can sense something off .

Gong Sang Mo hastily pulls her aside, “Shifu, Third Senior Brother, this disciple will send Yu Er to rest first .   I will keep you company later . ”

Before he even finish speaking, he already drags Yun Qian Yu to the door .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun and Qing Ling Xian can still faintly hear Yun Qian Yu’s complain, “What are you so hasty for?  Sheng Xue Tian Zun has not promised me yet!”

Qing Ling Xian turns to his shifu, “Shifu, did the girl beg you to spare Sang Mo?”

“No . ”  When Sheng Xue Tian Zun remembers Yun Qian Yu’s request, his eyes soften .

“No?  Then what is it that she asked from you?  Is it regarding Su Huai Feng?” Qing Ling Xian is thinking all the wrong things .   In his mind, he would kill Yun Qian Yu himself if it means that Gong Sang Mo will stop pouring his unconditional love towards someone so heartless .

“She asked me to let her share the punishment with Mo Er,” Sheng Xue Tian Zun sighs .

“What?  How is that possible?  Does she even know what sort of place that is?  Even Sang Mo may not necessarily be able to return alive .   If she tags along, she will only drag him down .   No, shifu, you must not let her,” decides Qing Ling Xian .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun shakes his head, “She probably does not know what sort of punishment is awaiting Mo Er .   Mo Er does not want her to know either, much less puts her in the direct path of danger . ”

“Hai, this Sang Mo is such a fool when it comes to love,” sighs Qing Ling Xian .

As for the other party, Yun Qian Yu who is getting dragged away can only say, “Will the punishment be really heavy?”

“No .   Did you see my shifu and Senior Brother?  Could they even bear to punish me?” Gong Sang Mo replies her casually .

“My heart is not rea.s.sured,” Yun Qian Yu grips Gong Sang Mo’s arm tight .   If the punishment is not heavy, why was Qing Ling Xian so anxious?

“Don’t worry .   They must be figuring out ways right now, to punish me without hurting me . ”

When Yun Qian Yu remembers how protective Qing Ling Xian had seem, she believes him .

She can see his residence looming nearby and quickly turns to him, “It is rare for you to be here, go and keep your shifu company .   I can go to your house by myself . ”

“No, I will send you first .  Then, I will return to my shifu . ”

Since he looks so insistent, Yun Qian Yu lets him .   After all, they are only a couple of steps away .

When they reach the entrance to the house, she waves him off, “Hurry and go . ”

Gong Sang Mo laughs, “Alright .   Rest first, I will return later . ”

Yun Qian Yu nods .   She watches him walk away until he reaches his shifu’s residence .   Then, just as she is about to enter the house, she hears someone calling her name .

“Princess Hu Guo!”

She slowly turns around, “Crown Prince Jin . ”

This is the first time she ever sees the clear-faced Long Jin looking so malevolent .   His eyes are dark as he looks at her .   The usual haughtiness in which he used to carry himself with is no longer there .

Yun Qian Yu wonders what happened .   What is it that makes him this angry?  Long Xiang Luo alone shouldn’t be enough to reduce him to such a state .

What Yun Qian Yu does not know is that what happened between the impostor Long Xiang Luo and the prince of Jiu Xiao Kingdom has ruined the relationship between the two kingdoms, effectively killing any opportunities that Long Jin ought to reap from the marriage alliance .

Yun Qian Yu fixes her cloak and lets it wrap tight around her body .   Even though she is the owner of a valley and should be used to the cold, this snowy mountain peak is a different matter altogether .

“Yes, Crown Prince Jin?” Yun Qian Yu is not keen to stand here for so long with someone she does not care for .

Long Jin breathes out heavily, his voice cold, “Were you the one who did it to Xiang Luo?”

Yun Qian Yu raises her eyebrows .   “Crown Prince Jin, bengong has been traveling and is a little outdated on the current matters .   Why?  Did anything happen to Princess Long?  And what does it has anything to do with bengong?”

Long Jin does not reply her and simply looks at her darkly, wanting to catch anything off on her face .   However, Yun Qian Yu’s face is still full of confusion as she waits for Long Jin’s answer .

“Xiang Luo is dead,” replies Long Jin faintly .

“Dead?  How is it possible?  Although bengong has never liked her, bengong never really wants her dead,” exclaims Yun Qian Yu in surprise .  

“How confident are you when it comes to Su Huai Feng, Princess Hu Guo?” Long Jin knows he will not get anything out of Yun Qian Yu when it comes to Long Xiang Luo’s death, so he simply changes the topic .

Yun Qian Yu blinks innocently, “How about you?  How confident are you?”

Long Jin trains his eyes on Yun Qian Yu before saying, “Half-half . ”

“Oh . ”  Yun Qian Yu’s eyes light up .   What makes him so confident?  Does he have something up his sleeves that can help him secure Su Huai Feng?

“Bengong is fully confident . ”

“Fully confident?” Long Jin looks at her in shock .

Yun Qian Yu nods .   The truth is, she is just trying to scare him off .    She has never even met Su Huai Feng, how confident could she even be?  She has not even prepared anything and is just going with the flow .

Long Jin frowns, “Just based on that painting alone?”

“I do not plan to use that painting . ”  Yun Qian Yu does not seem surprised that Long Jin knows the painting is in her hands .

She did bring that painting along, but she knows that it will not sway Su Huai Feng .

If Su Huai Feng is that easily swayed, she would not bother to come here to personally recruit him .

After all, if even a painting can easily sway him, what can one do when Yang Ruo Yun herself shows up?

“You won’t?” Long Jin looks at Yun Qian Yu suspiciously .

Yun Qian Yu looks at Long Jin indifferently, “Don’t tell me that you will think that Su Huai Feng will choose sides over a mere painting?”

A look flashes on Long Jin’s eyes, “I underestimated Princess Hu Guo . ”

“Bengong still don’t think that you consider bengong a worthy opponent,” replies Yun Qian Yu .   Does he really believe that she will not see through his little tricks?

Long Jin laughs as he stands with his arms behind him .   “Do you know who Jiu Xiao Kingdom sent?”

Yun Qian Yu knows that for Long Jin to bring him up, that person must be someone capable, “Bei Tang Gu Qiu!”

Long Jin knew Yun Qian Yu wouldn’t know .  Even he didn’t know that the legendary 6th w.a.n.gye, Bei Tang Gu Qiu is here .   Only after the death of the 4th w.a.n.gye did he finally comes to that knowledge .

Yun Qian Yu raises an eyebrow; so it is indeed him .

This Bei Tang Gu Qiu is pretty much a living legend; he is very famous .   It is said that he is supremely talented, a famous prodigy of Jiu Xiao Kingdom . He is said to be very smart and handsome, also talented in martial arts .   Unfortunately, he did not receive the love of Jiu Xiao Kingdom’s Emperor .   He is only 20 years old, but has already experienced myriads of hardship .   To be able to shine under such condition shows that he must be truly talented .

“So what?” says Yun Qian Yu casually .

The smile on Long Jin’s face turns stiff .   He was originally pretty confident that he could recruit Su Huai Feng .   Only after he heard that Jiu Xiao Kingdom’s 6th w.a.n.gye is here that the confidence dropped to only half .   How could Yun Qian Yu treat that fact as though it is nothing?  Is it because she does not know how outstanding Bei Tang Gu Qiu is or is it because she is already confident that victory is within her palm?

“From the look of it, Princess Hu Guo really has an ace card up your sleeves,” Long Jin is not worried .   After all, all the kingdoms are in on this compet.i.tion .   Someone will win and the others are bound to lose .

Yun Qian Yu tips her chin with a smile .

“Then, this prince will just have to wait to see how Princess Hu Guo secure this win . ”  After saying that, Long Jin turns around and walks away .

Yun Qian Yu sniffs twice .   The cold really is getting to her .   Her eyes look at a spot not too far away .   Someone is standing there, hiding amongst the darkness .   Had it not been for her Zi Yu Xin Jing, she would not have sensed him .

When that person realized that she has noticed him, his breathing falters a little .   Then, he composes himself and turns around and leave .

Yun Qian Yu narrows her eyes .   If she is right, that person ought to be Bei Tang Gu Qiu .

A gust of cold wind blows by .   Yun Qian Yu shrinks her neck and turns around to enter Gong Sang Mo’s palace .   It is then that two people in white fly by .   One of them, she already knows; Gong Sang Mo’s Eldest Senior Brother, Qing Yuan Xian .   The other old man ought to be his Second Senior Brother, Qing Yun Xian, who is also Su Huai Feng’s teacher .   She watches them as they enter Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s residence .   Why does she have a bad feeling about this?

She stops for a moment before turning around and entering Gong Sang Mo’s residence .

Gong Sang Mo’s palace is carved from stone as well, the layout is very similar to Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s palace .

Chen Xiang and the rest are already busy doing ch.o.r.es .   The smell of cooked rice from the kitchen can be smelled from where she is standing .   All of them are dividing the ch.o.r.es equally; one is brewing tea, one is boiling water, one is busy watching the stove, while the other is cleaning up .

All four curtsy in front of Yun Qian Yu when she enters, “Dinner will be ready soon .   You should rest first, Mistress . ”

Yun Qian Yu nods and pushes open one of the doors there .   Gong Sang Mo is not here, even if dinner is ready, she will still have to wait for him .   Might as well get some alone time for herself .

She walks along the stone corridor .   As expected, it leads to another room .

Hot water are boiling on a portable stove as San Qiu and Yi Ri bustle around, cleaning the room .

Both of them bow at her when she walks in .  

The smell of jasmine tea fills the air as San Qiu promptly brews a pot of tea .

Yun Qian Yu looks at the stone bed .   These people sleep on rock bed despite the weather?  How cold and hard would it be?

San Qiu pours some tea on a cup as he says, “This is a jade stone bed, they are very warm . ”

Yi Ri, on the other hand, takes out some bedding materials from the closet and spreads them out for Yun Qian Yu .

Yun Qian Yu looks at them before saying, “Do you know what the punishment for breaking the rules of this mountain will be?”

A certain light flashes on those two’s eyes as one of them reply, “This subordinate has never seen anyone receiving their punishment here, and thus, does not know what sort of punishments there are . ”

She looks at their faces, comprehension dawning her .   Gong Sang Mo told them not to tell her anything .   This serves to tell her one thing: the punishment will be severe .

“Both of you can go,” Yun Qian Yu knows that neither of these two will say anything no matter how hard she tries .

“You should rest, Your Highness .   This subordinate will call Chen Xiang to wait on you,” says San Qiu .

Yun Qian Yu waves them away, “No need .   I would like to rest by myself . ”

San Qiu and Yi Ri exchange a look before bowing and leaving .

Yun Qian Yu walks over to the stone bed and sits there .   It is indeed warm .   The kind of warmth that spreads throughout your body .

She picks up the tea cup and takes a small sip of the tea, warming her from the inside .

After finishing the cup, she gently lies on the bed even though she does not feel tired at all .

At this moment, in Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s residence, three white-bearded old men kneels in front of the old Shifu as he sits on his bed .

“Shifu, please spare Sang Mo this one time!”

“Just take it as this disciple was the one who killed that wretched disciple!  Please,” begs Qing Yuan Xian .

Even the usually indifferent Qing Yun Xian speaks up, “There are only four of us .   Three have been learning Xue Lian Han Gong from you for over four decades and only managed to reach the 8thlevel .   When it comes to other disciples, only Su Huai Feng managed to reach the 5th level .   Junior Brother Sang Mo, on the other hand, is the only one who managed to reach the 9th level, and he only took 13 years .   At this rate, he is the only one who can completely master Xue Lian Han Gong .   Shifu, for the last hundreds of years, people have only been entering Nine Deaths for One Life, none of them managed to return .   If anything happens to Junior Brother, the art will become extinct!”

“He is right, Shifu!  Please reconsider your decision!” Qing Yuan Xian and Qing Ling Xian speak up .

Gong Sang Mo watches them quietly from the sideline .   His heart is warmed by the sight of his three seniors begging on his behalf .

Years ago, when his heart grew cold by his parents and brother’s death, it was his Shifu and Senior Brothers who warmed his heart back again .   Back then, they were all like a father figure to him, doting on him like he was a treasure .   These people as well as his grandfather were the ones who gave him enough courage and confidence to protect the kingdom in the battlefield .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun is quiet as he looks at the three disciples .   Then, he rubs his beard and turns to Gong Sang Mo, “What do you think, Mo Er?”

“This disciple think that punishment is only right,” replies Gong Sang Mo .

All three Senior Brothers look at him panickingly .   This Junior Brother was usually slippery like a fox, why is he suddenly so uncharastically honest now?

Gong Sang Mo turns to them, “Sang Mo understand that Senior Brothers dote on Sang Mo, but please get up first .   Listen to Sang Mo, first . ”

The three old men exchange looks .   They slowly stand up .

“Shifu’s biggest wish in life is to see how Xue Lian Han Gong looks like when it is fully mastered .   We have tried our best to do that for him .   First Senior Brother and Third Senior Brother even started taking in disciples .   Sang Mo have always wanted to give ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ a try, perhaps it can help my cultivation .   But Sang Mo never truly made up my mind about it .   Now that Sang Mo has someone to protect, Sang Mo wants to try his best for her .   Killing Long Xiang Luo will not only get rid of that threat for Yu Er, but it will also force Sang Mo to go through the route that Sang Mo have always wanted to try . ”  When he speaks of Yun Qian Yu, his eyes becomes gentle .   He becomes even more resolute to give ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ a try .

All three men becomes stumped .  

Qing Yun Xian is the first to recover from his stupor, “You mean, in order to master Xue Lian Han Gong, one must go through ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’?”

“Perhaps,” Gong Sang Mo nods . “I reached the ninth level when I was fifteen .   That was three years ago and until now, I cannot sense any further development .   I had traveled to other kingdoms in hopes for other arts that might be able to help me pierce through the 10th level, but no such luck . ”

Gong Sang Mo turns to Sheng Xue Tian Zun, “That day, I was under Tian En Temple’s paG.o.da with Yu Er .   Just when I thought I was going to die, Yu Er managed to master the art .   She channelled her power to me and gave me time to master the art on my own .   But because of that, her own power never truly recovers .   Even until now . ”

He becomes a little agitated when he remembers that .   That was the first time he ever saw the indifferent Yun Qian Yu losing control over her emotions .   His heart aches for her .

“That actually happened?” the three Senior Brothers exchange looks .   No wonder their Junior Brother is so taken by the girl .   Turns out, they already went through life and death together .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s eyes light up, “Show it to Shifu . ”

Gong Sang Mo channels his power out and a beautiful lotus hovers above his palm .   The petals are half white and half gold .   Yun Qian Yu would have been shocked if she sees this .   Their inner power are both in the shape of lotus .   Just, Gong Sang Mo’s is exceptionally cold .  

“After that experience, Sang Mo finally understands why our ancestors left the punishment site for ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ as it is and puts out the rule that only the exceptionally good students are eligible for that punishment .   Because only the best of us could conquer ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ and master Xue Lian Han Gong,” guesses Gong Sang Mo .

“If it is so, Sang Mo must go for it no matter what!”  Sheng Xue Tian Zun is very agitated .   He himself can only master up to only the 9th level .   At this age, never mind him, even his three other disciples are not fit for ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ .   The only reason two of his disciples started taking in disciples for themselves is in order to find the one who can continue the art of Xue Lian Han Gong .

Unfortunately, no matter how many disciples Qing Yuan Xian and Qing Ling Xian takes, none of them are talented enough to even come close to mastering the art .   The only disciple that Qing Ling Xian took, Su Huai Feng is talented, but even he can only master it to the 5th level .

Since all of his three disciples are famous, the common people began calling the sect Mount San Xian instead of just Mount Xian .  

(TN:  Mount San Xian = Mount Three Celestials .   Mount Xian = Mount Celestial . )

Luckily, the heavens does not permit the art to go extinct yet .   When Sheng Xue Tian Zun was 93 years old, he stumbled upon a young martial arts prodigy, Gong Sang Mo .   He was ecstatic and took in the boy as a disciple immediately .   He personally taught him as best as he could .   Gong Sang Mo did not disappoint; he reached the 9th level of Xue Lian Han Gong when he was just 15 years old .   He is this close to fully mastering the art .

So many years have pa.s.sed, he dotes on Sang Mo more than anything in this world .   He does not want him to undergo ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ and loses him in the process .   That was why he never told Gong Sang Mo that he would need to go through ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ .   Seems like the heavens are not on his side; Gong Sang Mo has come to that realization by himself .

The other three disciples are quiet .   If this is indeed the only way to master Xue Lian Han Gong, they are completely powerless to stop Sang Mo .   In fact, they ought to encourage him even more .   However, they do not want anything bad to happen to him .

“Senior Brothers, danger will definitely be there, but so will the possibilities .   I managed to leave Tian En Temple alive, I believe I can leave ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ alive as well .   Besides, I have all of you and Yu Er waiting for me .   I must succeed,” Gong Sang Mo comforts his Senior Brothers, and secretly, his shifu too .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun has lived for over a century .   He has seen a lot of things .   How could he possibly not see what Gong Sang Mo is trying to do?  “This child, ah . ”

Gong Sang Mo smiles, “Shifu, Sang Mo wants to try it tomorrow . ”

Sheng Xue Tian Zun looks at Gong Sang Mo .   After a while, he says, “Since you have made up your mind, then go as soon as you can . ”

Gong Sang Mo nods .   He thinks so too .   Since he has decided to go, he should go as soon as he can .   After all, a slight show of hesitation from him will send waves of panic to his Senior Brothers .

“There is a favour Sang Mo would like to ask from Senior Brothers,” says he .

“What is it?” asks Qing Yuan Xian .

Qing Yun Xian speaks up, “If it’s regarding Su Huai Feng, I cannot help you .   I already promised him I will not interfere . ”

Qing Yun Xian thought Gong Sang Mo is going to ask for favour on behalf of Yun Qian Yu .

“When it comes to Huai Feng, Yu Er can handle it with her own ability .   What I want to ask of you is to never tell Yu Er that I am going to face ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ .   If anything, tell her that I was only going to reflect and meditate for three days .   She will be very busy because of Huai Feng, so she might not noticed it is a lie if it comes from all three of you . ”

The three Senior Brothers grow quiet .   One needs to pa.s.s ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ within three days .   If you can’t make it out within three days, you will no longer have the chance to get out alive .

“Alright,” Qing Yuan Xian nods .

Gong Sang Mo bows to them in grat.i.tude .

Now that everything is set, the three Senior Brothers left to give Gong Sang Mo some time alone with their Shifu .  

Sheng Xue Tian Zun looks at this beloved disciple of his and pats the s.p.a.ce next to him, “Come sit here, Mo Er . ”

Gong Sang Mo walks over and kneels next to Sheng Xue Tian Zun .  

The warmth of the jade stone reminds Gong Sang Mo of one of his early experiences in the mountain .   Of his Shifu letting him sit on the warm stone while patiently teaching him Xue Lian Han Gong .

In the blink of an eye, 13 years have pa.s.sed .   Shifu is already 106 years old .   Even though learning Xue Lian Han Gong can help extend one’s lifetime, his shifu is still a man at the dusk of his life .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun is also lost in memory .   The pretty little child that he used to carry around is now a handsome young man .   That child is now going to do something that he himself could never do .   His heart is wrought in worry, for the first time in decades .  

The two of them look at each other for a while .

Then, Sheng Xue Tian Zun breaks the silence, “Go back .   The girl must be waiting for you . ”

Gong Sang Mo stands up before kowtowing in front of Sheng Xue Tian Zun, “Don’t worry, Shifu .   This disciple will return safely . ”

Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s eyes sting a little as he waves Gong Sang Mo away .

Gong Sang Mo turns around and leaves .

When he walks out of his Shifu’s abode, his eyes falls on his own residence that is lit brightly by lanterns .   Something warms up his heart .   The woman that he loves is waiting for him over there .

So this is what happiness feels like .

He glances at the snowflakes descending from the sky .   Then, he walks to his own residence .

Inside, the servant girls, his guards, and Feng Ran and Yun Nian are all circling the main heater, trying to warm themselves up .

When they see him coming, they stand up to greet him .

“Where is Yu Er?” asks Gong Sang Mo as he shakes the snow off of him .

“Mistress is resting in the chamber .   She said she wants to wait for w.a.n.gye for dinner,” replies Chen Xiang .

Gong Sang Mo looks at the dishes that are being warmed on the stove, “Bring the food to our room . ”

“Yes!”

Gong Sang Mo pushes open the door and walks through the stone corridor .   When he reaches another door at the end of the corridor, he pushes it open .   The first thing he sees is Yun Qian Yu lying on the jade bed with her eyes closed .

She slowly opens her eyes, “You are back . ”

“En .   You must be hungry .   I asked Chen Xiang and the rest to bring dinner here,” Gong Sang Mo takes off his coat and walks to the bed to help Yun Qian Yu stand up .

Yun Qian Yu sits up and leans her head on his shoulder, wrapping her arm around his waist .

Something flashes in Gong Sang Mo’s eyes as he wraps his arms around her tight .   “Yu Er, you actually took the initiative to run into my arms,” teases Gong Sang Mo .

Yun Qian Yu quietly rests her head on his chest, not saying a word .

When the servant girls arrive, they do not know whether they should walk in or just leave .

“Come in,” says Gong Sang Mo .

Yun Qian Yu sits up and lets go of Gong Sang Mo .   She puts on her shoes .

When Chen Xiang and the rest are done serving the dishes, they retreat as fast as they could .

Yun Qian Yu regards the dishes in disinterest .

“What’s wrong?  Are you tired?” asks Gong Sang Mo .

Yun Qian Yu glances up at him before lowering her eyes, “A little . ”

“Eat first, and then you should rest early,” Gong Sang Mo puts some of her favourite dishes into her bowl .

“En,” says Yun Qian Yu as she eats .

After dinner, Man Er brings in some water for her to wash with .   After bathing, Yun Qian Yu lies down on the bed, facing sideway .

When Gong Sang Mo returns after bathing, he lies next to her and spoons her from behind .   “Don’t worry, it’s just a little confinement . ”

Yun Qian Yu’s eyelashes tremble a little as she asks, “How long?”

“3 days .   I would be out by the time Yu Er secured Su Huai Feng,” Gong Sang Mo cracks a rare joke .

“When will it start?” Yun Qian Yu does not smile .

“Tomorrow . ” Gong Sang Mo helplessly sighs: this clever girl .

“Go to bed . ”  Yun Qian Yu surprisingly did not pursue the matter .   All the excuses that Gong Sang Mo has prepared ended being unused .

Both of them fall asleep while in each other’s embrace .

Early after breakfast next morning, Gong Sang Mo turns to Yun Qian Yu, “Yu Er, San Qiu will take you to see Huai Feng .   I will attend to my punishment first, we’ll see each other after three days . ”

Yun Qian Yu nods, “Alright . ”

Qing Ling Xian’s voice can be heard outside, “Sang Mo, it is time for your confinement . ”

“Coming!” replies Gong Sang Mo loudly .   He leans down and give Yun Qian Yu’s forehead a kiss, “Wait for me . ”

“Alright . ” 

After Yun Qian Yu’s reply, Gong Sang Mo turns around and leaves .

“San Qiu,” calls Yun Qian Yu .

“Your Highness,” San Qiu appears in front of her .

“Take me to Su Huai Feng,” Yun Qian Yu puts on her fox-fur robe .

San Qiu looks at Yun Qian Yu suspiciously; isn’t it to early to go to Su Huai Feng’s place right now?

When he sees that she is set to go, he has no other choice but to lead her to Su Huai Feng’s house .

Only when they get there that San Qiu realized that they are not early at all .   The representatives from Mo Dai Kingdom and Jiu Xiao Kingdom are already there .

 Long Jin eyes Yun Qian Yu, before looking at Bei Tang Gu Qiu who is sitting beside him .   He smiles helplessly; these two people are not ordinary people .   With them around, he does not feel confident at all .

When Yun Qian Yu walks in and sees Bei Tang Gu Qiu, she is now sure that he was the man from yesterday .

“Shifu, this disciple promised to introduce you to the girl that this disciple fell in love with .   This is her, her name is Yu Er,” says Gong Sang Mo

“En, shifu has heard of her long before even meeting her,” says Sheng Xue Tian Zun meaningfully

“Shifu, Yu Er is smart, kind, beautiful, talented and extraordinary .   Her grasp on martial arts is very high and her medical skill is unrivalled .   She is truly one of a kind,” Gong Sang Mo begins listing Yun Qian Yu’s virtues

The corner of Yun Qian Yu’s lips twitches .   Even she did not know that she has that many advantages

Sheng Xue Tian Zun narrows his eyes at Gong Sang Mo, “Might as well adds that she is as beautiful as a celestial figure and can topple cities . ”.

Gong Sang Mo looks at Yun Qian Yu before shamelessly saying, “I don’t have to say that part; anyone with eyes can see that . ”.

The corner of Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s lips tremble; he is so in love .   He turns to Yun Qian Yu, “What do you think about what Sang Mo said, yatou?”.

Yun Qian Yu looks at Gong Sang Mo, “Since he likes me, it is natural that he only sees the good parts about me . ”.

Gong Sang Mo laughs

Sheng Xue Tian Zun gives Yun Qian Yu a probing look, “Then, what do you think about Sang Mo?”.

Hearing that, she turns to Gong Sang Mo while smiling, “Just one word: Silly . ”.

“Oh,” Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s eyes twinkle in appreciation .   He plays with his long and white eyebrows as he looks at Gong Sang Mo .   “This is the first time a girl has ever called Mo Er ‘silly . ”.

Gong Sang Mo understands why Yun Qian Yu calls him that .   The smile on his face deepens

“In what way is Mo Er silly?  Come and tell me,” asks Sheng Xue Tian Zun in interest

Yun Qian Yu blinks .   Even a 100-year old man loves to gossip?.

“He liked me for three years and never said a word .   And then, he knew he would die and he still did his best to protect me .   He knew it would get him into trouble yet he still killed a junior in order to avenge me .   What is he, if not stupid?” replies Yun Qian Yu seriously as she lists the reasons one by one

Sheng Xue Tian Zun laughs while playing with his beard, “Correct .   He would be an idiot if he only did one of those, and he actually did all three . ”.

When Yun Qian Yu raised the topic of Long Xiang Luo, Gong Sang Mo quickly looked at his teacher .   However, he is not looking at him .   His eyes are trained on Yun Qian Yu

“Do you think we should punish Mo Er for turning his back against the sect for you?” asks Sheng Xue Tian Zun

She naturally does not want that to happen .   However, she is not a part of this mountain .   Will her opinion even count?.

“Tian Zun, if I say no, will it be no?” asks Yun Qian Yu instead of replying

Sheng Xue Tian Zun smiles at her, “Of course not .   However, I am interested to hear your opinion about the matter . ”.

“Would you like to hear the truth or a lie?” blinks Yun Qian Yu prettily

“The truth, of course!” replies Sheng Xue Tian Zun without hesitation

“But truths are often what one would not like to hear .   Are you sure, Tian Zun?” asks Yun Qian Yu hesitantly .  .

“Of course!” replies Sheng Xue Tian Zun patiently

“If you did not like what I am about to say, I hope you will not kick me out of the mountain, Tian Zun,” says Yun Qian Yu uneasily .  .

“I will not .   I have lived for over a century, I will not be petty towards a little girl like you,” replies Sheng Xue Tian Zun calmly

“Then, I will tell the truth,” says Yun Qian Yu

Sheng Xue Tian Zun nods

“I naturally think that it is inappropriate to punish Sang Mo,” says Yun Qian Yu

It is something that Sheng Xue Tian Zun expected to hear

“Whyever so?  Didn’t Mo Er broke the rule?” asks Sheng Xue Tian Zun

“Wouldn’t this be a losing transaction if you punish him?” Yun Qian Yu rolls her eyes

“In what way?” Sheng Xue Tian Zun finds Yun Qian Yu really interesting

“Punishing an excellent disciple over a morally questionable one, wouldn’t you be the one suffering a loss, Tian Zun?” questions Yun Qian Yu earnestly

Sheng Xue Tian Zun is momentarily taken aback before bursting out in laughter

“I will indeed suffer a loss, but sometimes, it still has to be done . ”.

Yun Qian Yu’s heart sinks .   That means that Gong Sang Mo truly cannot escape this punishment

“Then, can I ask one thing of you?” asks Yun Qian Yu

“It is impossible to beg for mercy for Sang Mo,” says Sheng Xue Tian Zun without giving her the chance to speak

“I am not going to ask for mercy for Sang Mo,” says Yun Qian Yu earnestly

The smile on Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s face fades: Sang Mo is about to be punished for what he did for her, and she is actually in the mood to ask for something else?.

“What is it?” Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s voice is no longer as amiable

“Can I bear the punishment along with Sang Mo?” Yun Qian Yu naturally notices the change in his demeanor

Sheng Xue Tian Zun is taken aback when he hears that .   Turns out that he has misunderstood her .   But still, it is too early to make a conclusion about her real personality

“What if the punishment is Nine Deaths for One Life?  Are you still willing to take it with him?” Sheng Xue Tian Zun carefully eyes Yun Qian Yu’s expression

“Yes,” replies Yun Qian Yu without hesitation

When Sheng Xue Tian Zun sees the earnest look on Yun Qian Yu’s face, his heart unwittingly moves .   Mo Er have good eyesight

Gong Sang Mo’s heartbeat picks up it’s rate when he hears that .   He pulls Yun Qian Yu up, regardless of whether or not his shifu still wants to speak, “Shifu, we have been on the road for half a month and have only arrived tonight .   Yu Er need to rest properly .   I will bring her to you again tomorrow to chat .   As for the punishment, it is not a big deal .   It’s not like shifu will heavily punish this disciple .   Let’s not scare Yu Er . ”  Gong Sang Mo sends his teacher a look

Sheng Xue Tian Zun understands that his disciple does not want Yun Qian Yu to know what kind of punishment is awaiting him .   He does not want her to share it with him as well

Sheng Xue Tan Zun sighs as he looks at his love-sick favourite disciple .   He is just the same as that father of his!.

“No, Tian Zun has not promised me yet,” Yun Qian Yu refuses to leave .   This is the only way she can quietly support Gong Sang Mo

“Yu Er… . ” .

Just as Gong Sang Mo is about to figure out how to best coax Yun Qian Yu into leaving, he can hear a voice from outside, “Sang Mo!”.

“Third Senior Brother!”  Gong Sang Mo stiffens .   It is so late, what is his Third Senior Brother doing here?  He originally planned to visit him tomorrow

Yun Qian Yu remembers this Senior Brother as being Long Xiang Luo’s shifu .   Don’t tell her he is here to settle the score?.

Something clicks inside Yun Qian Yu’s head and she immediately gets up and stands in front of Gong Sang Mo, blocking him from whatever is to come

When Sheng Xue Tian Zun sees that, his heart is eased a little .   At least it is not one-sided

Qing Ling Xian walks in with large strides .   When he sees what is going on, he snaps at Yun Qian Yu, “This little girl!  What are you doing, blocking Sang Mo from me?”  Then, something dawns on him .   “Don’t tell me you think I am here to seek revenge?”  The look on his face turns ugly

Yun Qian Yu blinks at him .   So, he isn’t here for revenge?  Why is he looking so urgent, then?.

“You really thought so?” demanded Qing Ling Xian

Gong Sang Mo pulls Yun Qian Yu backwards, “Third Senior Brother, Yu Er was just worried for me .   Please do not mind her . ”.

Yun Qian Yu looks at this hasty-looking Senior Brother in confusion .   Here is another with white beard; needless to ponder, his Second Senior Brother ought to also be an old man with white beard

“This Senior Brother of yours is old and experienced; he will not be petty towards a little girl,” Qing Ling Xian rolls his eyes skyward .   “But still, even if you want to kill that unfilial disciple, you should have just kidnap her and sends her to me .   I will do the dirty work for you .   Why did you have to personally use your own hands!”.

“I was in a rush,” Gong Sang Mo’s heart warms up .   How could he possibly let his Senior Brother kill his own disciple?.

“That unfilial girl was too calculating, too treacherous .   Death was too easy for her,” says Qing Ling Xian angrily

After saying all that, Qing Ling Xian finally seems to remembers that his shifu is inside the room .   He bows towards his shifu to beg for Gong Sang Mo, “Shifu, no one else really knows about this matter .   Perhaps, you can… ”.

Sheng Xue Tian Zun cuts him off, “What do you think?”.

Qing Ling Xian immediately grows quiet .   Everyone who commits a mistake is punished in this sect, no matter how many contributions they have .  .

Yun Qian Yu can sense something off

Gong Sang Mo hastily pulls her aside, “Shifu, Third Senior Brother, this disciple will send Yu Er to rest first .   I will keep you company later . ”.

Before he even finish speaking, he already drags Yun Qian Yu to the door

Sheng Xue Tian Zun and Qing Ling Xian can still faintly hear Yun Qian Yu’s complain, “What are you so hasty for?  Sheng Xue Tian Zun has not promised me yet!”.

Qing Ling Xian turns to his shifu, “Shifu, did the girl beg you to spare Sang Mo?”.

“No . ”  When Sheng Xue Tian Zun remembers Yun Qian Yu’s request, his eyes soften

“No?  Then what is it that she asked from you?  Is it regarding Su Huai Feng?” Qing Ling Xian is thinking all the wrong things .   In his mind, he would kill Yun Qian Yu himself if it means that Gong Sang Mo will stop pouring his unconditional love towards someone so heartless

“She asked me to let her share the punishment with Mo Er,” Sheng Xue Tian Zun sighs

“What?  How is that possible?  Does she even know what sort of place that is?  Even Sang Mo may not necessarily be able to return alive .   If she tags along, she will only drag him down .   No, shifu, you must not let her,” decides Qing Ling Xian

Sheng Xue Tian Zun shakes his head, “She probably does not know what sort of punishment is awaiting Mo Er .   Mo Er does not want her to know either, much less puts her in the direct path of danger . ”.

“Hai, this Sang Mo is such a fool when it comes to love,” sighs Qing Ling Xian

As for the other party, Yun Qian Yu who is getting dragged away can only say, “Will the punishment be really heavy?”.

“No .   Did you see my shifu and Senior Brother?  Could they even bear to punish me?” Gong Sang Mo replies her casually

“My heart is not rea.s.sured,” Yun Qian Yu grips Gong Sang Mo’s arm tight .   If the punishment is not heavy, why was Qing Ling Xian so anxious?.

“Don’t worry .   They must be figuring out ways right now, to punish me without hurting me . ”.

When Yun Qian Yu remembers how protective Qing Ling Xian had seem, she believes him

She can see his residence looming nearby and quickly turns to him, “It is rare for you to be here, go and keep your shifu company .   I can go to your house by myself . ”.

“No, I will send you first .  Then, I will return to my shifu . ”.

Since he looks so insistent, Yun Qian Yu lets him .   After all, they are only a couple of steps away

When they reach the entrance to the house, she waves him off, “Hurry and go . ”.

Gong Sang Mo laughs, “Alright .   Rest first, I will return later . ”.

Yun Qian Yu nods .   She watches him walk away until he reaches his shifu’s residence .   Then, just as she is about to enter the house, she hears someone calling her name

“Princess Hu Guo!”.

She slowly turns around, “Crown Prince Jin . ”.

This is the first time she ever sees the clear-faced Long Jin looking so malevolent .   His eyes are dark as he looks at her .   The usual haughtiness in which he used to carry himself with is no longer there

Yun Qian Yu wonders what happened .   What is it that makes him this angry?  Long Xiang Luo alone shouldn’t be enough to reduce him to such a state

What Yun Qian Yu does not know is that what happened between the impostor Long Xiang Luo and the prince of Jiu Xiao Kingdom has ruined the relationship between the two kingdoms, effectively killing any opportunities that Long Jin ought to reap from the marriage alliance

Yun Qian Yu fixes her cloak and lets it wrap tight around her body .   Even though she is the owner of a valley and should be used to the cold, this snowy mountain peak is a different matter altogether

“Yes, Crown Prince Jin?” Yun Qian Yu is not keen to stand here for so long with someone she does not care for

Long Jin breathes out heavily, his voice cold, “Were you the one who did it to Xiang Luo?”.

Yun Qian Yu raises her eyebrows .   “Crown Prince Jin, bengong has been traveling and is a little outdated on the current matters .   Why?  Did anything happen to Princess Long?  And what does it has anything to do with bengong?”.

Long Jin does not reply her and simply looks at her darkly, wanting to catch anything off on her face .   However, Yun Qian Yu’s face is still full of confusion as she waits for Long Jin’s answer

“Xiang Luo is dead,” replies Long Jin faintly

“Dead?  How is it possible?  Although bengong has never liked her, bengong never really wants her dead,” exclaims Yun Qian Yu in surprise .  .

“How confident are you when it comes to Su Huai Feng, Princess Hu Guo?” Long Jin knows he will not get anything out of Yun Qian Yu when it comes to Long Xiang Luo’s death, so he simply changes the topic

Yun Qian Yu blinks innocently, “How about you?  How confident are you?”.

Long Jin trains his eyes on Yun Qian Yu before saying, “Half-half . ”.

“Oh . ”  Yun Qian Yu’s eyes light up .   What makes him so confident?  Does he have something up his sleeves that can help him secure Su Huai Feng?.

“Bengong is fully confident . ”.

“Fully confident?” Long Jin looks at her in shock

Yun Qian Yu nods .   The truth is, she is just trying to scare him off .    She has never even met Su Huai Feng, how confident could she even be?  She has not even prepared anything and is just going with the flow

Long Jin frowns, “Just based on that painting alone?”.

“I do not plan to use that painting . ”  Yun Qian Yu does not seem surprised that Long Jin knows the painting is in her hands

She did bring that painting along, but she knows that it will not sway Su Huai Feng

If Su Huai Feng is that easily swayed, she would not bother to come here to personally recruit him

After all, if even a painting can easily sway him, what can one do when Yang Ruo Yun herself shows up?.

“You won’t?” Long Jin looks at Yun Qian Yu suspiciously

Yun Qian Yu looks at Long Jin indifferently, “Don’t tell me that you will think that Su Huai Feng will choose sides over a mere painting?”.

A look flashes on Long Jin’s eyes, “I underestimated Princess Hu Guo . ”.

“Bengong still don’t think that you consider bengong a worthy opponent,” replies Yun Qian Yu .   Does he really believe that she will not see through his little tricks?.

Long Jin laughs as he stands with his arms behind him .   “Do you know who Jiu Xiao Kingdom sent?”.

Yun Qian Yu knows that for Long Jin to bring him up, that person must be someone capable, “Bei Tang Gu Qiu!”.

Long Jin knew Yun Qian Yu wouldn’t know .  Even he didn’t know that the legendary 6th w.a.n.gye, Bei Tang Gu Qiu is here .   Only after the death of the 4th w.a.n.gye did he finally comes to that knowledge

Yun Qian Yu raises an eyebrow; so it is indeed him

This Bei Tang Gu Qiu is pretty much a living legend; he is very famous .   It is said that he is supremely talented, a famous prodigy of Jiu Xiao Kingdom . He is said to be very smart and handsome, also talented in martial arts .   Unfortunately, he did not receive the love of Jiu Xiao Kingdom’s Emperor .   He is only 20 years old, but has already experienced myriads of hardship .   To be able to shine under such condition shows that he must be truly talented

“So what?” says Yun Qian Yu casually

The smile on Long Jin’s face turns stiff .   He was originally pretty confident that he could recruit Su Huai Feng .   Only after he heard that Jiu Xiao Kingdom’s 6th w.a.n.gye is here that the confidence dropped to only half .   How could Yun Qian Yu treat that fact as though it is nothing?  Is it because she does not know how outstanding Bei Tang Gu Qiu is or is it because she is already confident that victory is within her palm?.

“From the look of it, Princess Hu Guo really has an ace card up your sleeves,” Long Jin is not worried .   After all, all the kingdoms are in on this compet.i.tion .   Someone will win and the others are bound to lose

Yun Qian Yu tips her chin with a smile

“Then, this prince will just have to wait to see how Princess Hu Guo secure this win . ”  After saying that, Long Jin turns around and walks away

Yun Qian Yu sniffs twice .   The cold really is getting to her .   Her eyes look at a spot not too far away .   Someone is standing there, hiding amongst the darkness .   Had it not been for her Zi Yu Xin Jing, she would not have sensed him

When that person realized that she has noticed him, his breathing falters a little .   Then, he composes himself and turns around and leave

Yun Qian Yu narrows her eyes .   If she is right, that person ought to be Bei Tang Gu Qiu

A gust of cold wind blows by .   Yun Qian Yu shrinks her neck and turns around to enter Gong Sang Mo’s palace .   It is then that two people in white fly by .   One of them, she already knows; Gong Sang Mo’s Eldest Senior Brother, Qing Yuan Xian .   The other old man ought to be his Second Senior Brother, Qing Yun Xian, who is also Su Huai Feng’s teacher .   She watches them as they enter Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s residence .   Why does she have a bad feeling about this?.

She stops for a moment before turning around and entering Gong Sang Mo’s residence

Gong Sang Mo’s palace is carved from stone as well, the layout is very similar to Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s palace

Chen Xiang and the rest are already busy doing ch.o.r.es .   The smell of cooked rice from the kitchen can be smelled from where she is standing .   All of them are dividing the ch.o.r.es equally; one is brewing tea, one is boiling water, one is busy watching the stove, while the other is cleaning up

All four curtsy in front of Yun Qian Yu when she enters, “Dinner will be ready soon .   You should rest first, Mistress . ”.

Yun Qian Yu nods and pushes open one of the doors there .   Gong Sang Mo is not here, even if dinner is ready, she will still have to wait for him .   Might as well get some alone time for herself

She walks along the stone corridor .   As expected, it leads to another room

Hot water are boiling on a portable stove as San Qiu and Yi Ri bustle around, cleaning the room

Both of them bow at her when she walks in .  .

The smell of jasmine tea fills the air as San Qiu promptly brews a pot of tea

Yun Qian Yu looks at the stone bed .   These people sleep on rock bed despite the weather?  How cold and hard would it be?.

San Qiu pours some tea on a cup as he says, “This is a jade stone bed, they are very warm . ”.

Yi Ri, on the other hand, takes out some bedding materials from the closet and spreads them out for Yun Qian Yu

Yun Qian Yu looks at them before saying, “Do you know what the punishment for breaking the rules of this mountain will be?”.

A certain light flashes on those two’s eyes as one of them reply, “This subordinate has never seen anyone receiving their punishment here, and thus, does not know what sort of punishments there are . ”.

She looks at their faces, comprehension dawning her .   Gong Sang Mo told them not to tell her anything .   This serves to tell her one thing: the punishment will be severe

“Both of you can go,” Yun Qian Yu knows that neither of these two will say anything no matter how hard she tries

“You should rest, Your Highness .   This subordinate will call Chen Xiang to wait on you,” says San Qiu

Yun Qian Yu waves them away, “No need .   I would like to rest by myself . ”.

San Qiu and Yi Ri exchange a look before bowing and leaving

Yun Qian Yu walks over to the stone bed and sits there .   It is indeed warm .   The kind of warmth that spreads throughout your body

She picks up the tea cup and takes a small sip of the tea, warming her from the inside

After finishing the cup, she gently lies on the bed even though she does not feel tired at all

At this moment, in Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s residence, three white-bearded old men kneels in front of the old Shifu as he sits on his bed

“Shifu, please spare Sang Mo this one time!”.

“Just take it as this disciple was the one who killed that wretched disciple!  Please,” begs Qing Yuan Xian

Even the usually indifferent Qing Yun Xian speaks up, “There are only four of us .   Three have been learning Xue Lian Han Gong from you for over four decades and only managed to reach the 8thlevel .   When it comes to other disciples, only Su Huai Feng managed to reach the 5th level .   Junior Brother Sang Mo, on the other hand, is the only one who managed to reach the 9th level, and he only took 13 years .   At this rate, he is the only one who can completely master Xue Lian Han Gong .   Shifu, for the last hundreds of years, people have only been entering Nine Deaths for One Life, none of them managed to return .   If anything happens to Junior Brother, the art will become extinct!”.

“He is right, Shifu!  Please reconsider your decision!” Qing Yuan Xian and Qing Ling Xian speak up

Gong Sang Mo watches them quietly from the sideline .   His heart is warmed by the sight of his three seniors begging on his behalf

Years ago, when his heart grew cold by his parents and brother’s death, it was his Shifu and Senior Brothers who warmed his heart back again .   Back then, they were all like a father figure to him, doting on him like he was a treasure .   These people as well as his grandfather were the ones who gave him enough courage and confidence to protect the kingdom in the battlefield

Sheng Xue Tian Zun is quiet as he looks at the three disciples .   Then, he rubs his beard and turns to Gong Sang Mo, “What do you think, Mo Er?”.

“This disciple think that punishment is only right,” replies Gong Sang Mo

All three Senior Brothers look at him panickingly .   This Junior Brother was usually slippery like a fox, why is he suddenly so uncharastically honest now?.

Gong Sang Mo turns to them, “Sang Mo understand that Senior Brothers dote on Sang Mo, but please get up first .   Listen to Sang Mo, first . ”.

The three old men exchange looks .   They slowly stand up

“Shifu’s biggest wish in life is to see how Xue Lian Han Gong looks like when it is fully mastered .   We have tried our best to do that for him .   First Senior Brother and Third Senior Brother even started taking in disciples .   Sang Mo have always wanted to give ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ a try, perhaps it can help my cultivation .   But Sang Mo never truly made up my mind about it .   Now that Sang Mo has someone to protect, Sang Mo wants to try his best for her .   Killing Long Xiang Luo will not only get rid of that threat for Yu Er, but it will also force Sang Mo to go through the route that Sang Mo have always wanted to try . ”  When he speaks of Yun Qian Yu, his eyes becomes gentle .   He becomes even more resolute to give ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ a try

All three men becomes stumped .  .

Qing Yun Xian is the first to recover from his stupor, “You mean, in order to master Xue Lian Han Gong, one must go through ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’?”.

“Perhaps,” Gong Sang Mo nods . “I reached the ninth level when I was fifteen .   That was three years ago and until now, I cannot sense any further development .   I had traveled to other kingdoms in hopes for other arts that might be able to help me pierce through the 10th level, but no such luck . ”.

Gong Sang Mo turns to Sheng Xue Tian Zun, “That day, I was under Tian En Temple’s paG.o.da with Yu Er .   Just when I thought I was going to die, Yu Er managed to master the art .   She channelled her power to me and gave me time to master the art on my own .   But because of that, her own power never truly recovers .   Even until now . ”.

He becomes a little agitated when he remembers that .   That was the first time he ever saw the indifferent Yun Qian Yu losing control over her emotions .   His heart aches for her

“That actually happened?” the three Senior Brothers exchange looks .   No wonder their Junior Brother is so taken by the girl .   Turns out, they already went through life and death together

Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s eyes light up, “Show it to Shifu . ”.

Gong Sang Mo channels his power out and a beautiful lotus hovers above his palm .   The petals are half white and half gold .   Yun Qian Yu would have been shocked if she sees this .   Their inner power are both in the shape of lotus .   Just, Gong Sang Mo’s is exceptionally cold .  .

“After that experience, Sang Mo finally understands why our ancestors left the punishment site for ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ as it is and puts out the rule that only the exceptionally good students are eligible for that punishment .   Because only the best of us could conquer ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ and master Xue Lian Han Gong,” guesses Gong Sang Mo

“If it is so, Sang Mo must go for it no matter what!”  Sheng Xue Tian Zun is very agitated .   He himself can only master up to only the 9th level .   At this age, never mind him, even his three other disciples are not fit for ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ .   The only reason two of his disciples started taking in disciples for themselves is in order to find the one who can continue the art of Xue Lian Han Gong

Unfortunately, no matter how many disciples Qing Yuan Xian and Qing Ling Xian takes, none of them are talented enough to even come close to mastering the art .   The only disciple that Qing Ling Xian took, Su Huai Feng is talented, but even he can only master it to the 5th level

Since all of his three disciples are famous, the common people began calling the sect Mount San Xian instead of just Mount Xian .  .

(TN:  Mount San Xian = Mount Three Celestials .   Mount Xian = Mount Celestial . ).

Luckily, the heavens does not permit the art to go extinct yet .   When Sheng Xue Tian Zun was 93 years old, he stumbled upon a young martial arts prodigy, Gong Sang Mo .   He was ecstatic and took in the boy as a disciple immediately .   He personally taught him as best as he could .   Gong Sang Mo did not disappoint; he reached the 9th level of Xue Lian Han Gong when he was just 15 years old .   He is this close to fully mastering the art

So many years have pa.s.sed, he dotes on Sang Mo more than anything in this world .   He does not want him to undergo ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ and loses him in the process .   That was why he never told Gong Sang Mo that he would need to go through ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ .   Seems like the heavens are not on his side; Gong Sang Mo has come to that realization by himself

The other three disciples are quiet .   If this is indeed the only way to master Xue Lian Han Gong, they are completely powerless to stop Sang Mo .   In fact, they ought to encourage him even more .   However, they do not want anything bad to happen to him

“Senior Brothers, danger will definitely be there, but so will the possibilities .   I managed to leave Tian En Temple alive, I believe I can leave ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ alive as well .   Besides, I have all of you and Yu Er waiting for me .   I must succeed,” Gong Sang Mo comforts his Senior Brothers, and secretly, his shifu too

Sheng Xue Tian Zun has lived for over a century .   He has seen a lot of things .   How could he possibly not see what Gong Sang Mo is trying to do?  “This child, ah . ”.

Gong Sang Mo smiles, “Shifu, Sang Mo wants to try it tomorrow . ”.

Sheng Xue Tian Zun looks at Gong Sang Mo .   After a while, he says, “Since you have made up your mind, then go as soon as you can . ”.

Gong Sang Mo nods .   He thinks so too .   Since he has decided to go, he should go as soon as he can .   After all, a slight show of hesitation from him will send waves of panic to his Senior Brothers

“There is a favour Sang Mo would like to ask from Senior Brothers,” says he

“What is it?” asks Qing Yuan Xian

Qing Yun Xian speaks up, “If it’s regarding Su Huai Feng, I cannot help you .   I already promised him I will not interfere . ”.

Qing Yun Xian thought Gong Sang Mo is going to ask for favour on behalf of Yun Qian Yu

“When it comes to Huai Feng, Yu Er can handle it with her own ability .   What I want to ask of you is to never tell Yu Er that I am going to face ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ .   If anything, tell her that I was only going to reflect and meditate for three days .   She will be very busy because of Huai Feng, so she might not noticed it is a lie if it comes from all three of you . ”.

The three Senior Brothers grow quiet .   One needs to pa.s.s ‘Nine Deaths for One Life’ within three days .   If you can’t make it out within three days, you will no longer have the chance to get out alive

“Alright,” Qing Yuan Xian nods

Gong Sang Mo bows to them in grat.i.tude

Now that everything is set, the three Senior Brothers left to give Gong Sang Mo some time alone with their Shifu .  .

Sheng Xue Tian Zun looks at this beloved disciple of his and pats the s.p.a.ce next to him, “Come sit here, Mo Er . ”.

Gong Sang Mo walks over and kneels next to Sheng Xue Tian Zun .  .

The warmth of the jade stone reminds Gong Sang Mo of one of his early experiences in the mountain .   Of his Shifu letting him sit on the warm stone while patiently teaching him Xue Lian Han Gong

In the blink of an eye, 13 years have pa.s.sed .   Shifu is already 106 years old .   Even though learning Xue Lian Han Gong can help extend one’s lifetime, his shifu is still a man at the dusk of his life

Sheng Xue Tian Zun is also lost in memory .   The pretty little child that he used to carry around is now a handsome young man .   That child is now going to do something that he himself could never do .   His heart is wrought in worry, for the first time in decades .  .

The two of them look at each other for a while

Then, Sheng Xue Tian Zun breaks the silence, “Go back .   The girl must be waiting for you . ”.

Gong Sang Mo stands up before kowtowing in front of Sheng Xue Tian Zun, “Don’t worry, Shifu .   This disciple will return safely . ”.

Sheng Xue Tian Zun’s eyes sting a little as he waves Gong Sang Mo away

Gong Sang Mo turns around and leaves

When he walks out of his Shifu’s abode, his eyes falls on his own residence that is lit brightly by lanterns .   Something warms up his heart .   The woman that he loves is waiting for him over there

So this is what happiness feels like

He glances at the snowflakes descending from the sky .   Then, he walks to his own residence

Inside, the servant girls, his guards, and Feng Ran and Yun Nian are all circling the main heater, trying to warm themselves up

When they see him coming, they stand up to greet him

“Where is Yu Er?” asks Gong Sang Mo as he shakes the snow off of him

“Mistress is resting in the chamber .   She said she wants to wait for w.a.n.gye for dinner,” replies Chen Xiang

Gong Sang Mo looks at the dishes that are being warmed on the stove, “Bring the food to our room . ”.

“Yes!”.

Gong Sang Mo pushes open the door and walks through the stone corridor .   When he reaches another door at the end of the corridor, he pushes it open .   The first thing he sees is Yun Qian Yu lying on the jade bed with her eyes closed

She slowly opens her eyes, “You are back . ”.

“En .   You must be hungry .   I asked Chen Xiang and the rest to bring dinner here,” Gong Sang Mo takes off his coat and walks to the bed to help Yun Qian Yu stand up

Yun Qian Yu sits up and leans her head on his shoulder, wrapping her arm around his waist

Something flashes in Gong Sang Mo’s eyes as he wraps his arms around her tight .   “Yu Er, you actually took the initiative to run into my arms,” teases Gong Sang Mo

Yun Qian Yu quietly rests her head on his chest, not saying a word

When the servant girls arrive, they do not know whether they should walk in or just leave

“Come in,” says Gong Sang Mo

Yun Qian Yu sits up and lets go of Gong Sang Mo .   She puts on her shoes

When Chen Xiang and the rest are done serving the dishes, they retreat as fast as they could

Yun Qian Yu regards the dishes in disinterest

“What’s wrong?  Are you tired?” asks Gong Sang Mo

Yun Qian Yu glances up at him before lowering her eyes, “A little . ”.

“Eat first, and then you should rest early,” Gong Sang Mo puts some of her favourite dishes into her bowl

“En,” says Yun Qian Yu as she eats

After dinner, Man Er brings in some water for her to wash with .   After bathing, Yun Qian Yu lies down on the bed, facing sideway

When Gong Sang Mo returns after bathing, he lies next to her and spoons her from behind .   “Don’t worry, it’s just a little confinement . ”.

Yun Qian Yu’s eyelashes tremble a little as she asks, “How long?”.

“3 days .   I would be out by the time Yu Er secured Su Huai Feng,” Gong Sang Mo cracks a rare joke

“When will it start?” Yun Qian Yu does not smile

“Tomorrow . ” Gong Sang Mo helplessly sighs: this clever girl

“Go to bed . ”  Yun Qian Yu surprisingly did not pursue the matter .   All the excuses that Gong Sang Mo has prepared ended being unused

Both of them fall asleep while in each other’s embrace

Early after breakfast next morning, Gong Sang Mo turns to Yun Qian Yu, “Yu Er, San Qiu will take you to see Huai Feng .   I will attend to my punishment first, we’ll see each other after three days . ”.

Yun Qian Yu nods, “Alright . ”.

Qing Ling Xian’s voice can be heard outside, “Sang Mo, it is time for your confinement . ”.

“Coming!” replies Gong Sang Mo loudly .   He leans down and give Yun Qian Yu’s forehead a kiss, “Wait for me . ”.

“Alright . ” .

After Yun Qian Yu’s reply, Gong Sang Mo turns around and leaves

“San Qiu,” calls Yun Qian Yu

“Your Highness,” San Qiu appears in front of her

“Take me to Su Huai Feng,” Yun Qian Yu puts on her fox-fur robe

San Qiu looks at Yun Qian Yu suspiciously; isn’t it to early to go to Su Huai Feng’s place right now?.

When he sees that she is set to go, he has no other choice but to lead her to Su Huai Feng’s house

Only when they get there that San Qiu realized that they are not early at all .   The representatives from Mo Dai Kingdom and Jiu Xiao Kingdom are already there

 Long Jin eyes Yun Qian Yu, before looking at Bei Tang Gu Qiu who is sitting beside him .   He smiles helplessly; these two people are not ordinary people .   With them around, he does not feel confident at all

When Yun Qian Yu walks in and sees Bei Tang Gu Qiu, she is now sure that he was the man from yesterday
