Divine Map had already established Su Mo as its master, so he could sense everything that happened inside.
Su Mo sank his mind into the Divine Map and soon realised that Hong Qingxuan was calling him.
Su Mo then released Hong Qingxuan from the Divine Map.
“Brother Su Mo, my master’s here!” Hong Qingxuan exclaimed excitedly as soon as she got out.
“What?” Su Mo was too stunned to react to her words.
Hong Qingxuan quickly lifted her hand and revealed a marine jade pendant which was glowing brightly.
“This is a Marine Jade. My master and I could detect each other thanks to the formation inside the jades which would react when they are within 50,000 kilometers away from each other!”
Hong Qingxuan was overjoyed as she continued with a big smile, “This means that my master and I are less than 50,000 kilometers apart from each other!”
Su Mo froze and became anxious when he heard that.
“Qian Xunyue’s here?”
“What should I do?”
Su Mo was not afraid of confronting Qian Xunyue, because he was trying to save her back then.
Hong Qingxuan was his greatest concern!
If she knew about what had happened, they could probably never be friends again!
Evergreen Palace would lose its descendant if that happened!
Su Mo was thinking as hard as he could, but he did not know what to do!
He was not avoiding Qian Xunyue because he was irresponsible. It was because what happened between them was just a coincident that they should both forget about.
Otherwise, things would get really awkward.
“Brother Su Mo, what’s wrong?” Hong Qingxuan was puzzled that Su Mo seemed to be upset.
“Qingxuan, if your master could sense your location, she’ll be here soon, right?” Su Mo replied with a question instead.
“Of course!” Hong Qingxuan nodded. Qian Xunyue would definitely come to find her as soon as possible, so she just had to wait.
After much consideration, Su Mo gritted his teeth and said, “Qingxuan, I’ve to go first. You should wait for your master here!”
Su Mo decided to leave because this was not the best time to face Qian Xunyue.
He would not meet her even if he wanted to, because Hong Qingxuan was here.
“Why?” Hong Qingxuan was extremely confused. She did not understand why Su Mo was unwilling to meet her master!
“There are some misunderstandings between us!” Said Su Mo in a deep voice.
Then, he passed her a Messaging Charm and said, “You could message me at anytime!”
Su Mo flew toward Ancient City before Hong Qingxuan could even reply.
“This…” Hong Qingxuan was bewildered by the situation.
When Su Mo disappeared from her sight after a moment, Hong Qingxuan sighed because she had to wait for her master alone.
It did not take long before a stream of blue light appeared in the sky.
The stream of light reached Hong Qingxuan instantly and turned into a lady in white with a veil covering her face.
The lady was tall and slender. She gave off a holy aura just like a fairy that descended from heaven.
“Master!” Hong Qingxuan shouted excitedly when she saw the lady.
Although her face was covered by a white veil, Hong Qingxuan immediately knew that she was her master – Qian Xunyue, Fairy of the Ninth Heaven.
They had lived together for a long time, so she knew her master better than anyone else.
“Qingxuan, why are you here?” Qian Xunyue asked in a puzzled tone after she scanned the surroundings and discovered that Hong Qingxuan was alone.
She came here because she was tracking Su Mo, but she did not expect to find Hong Qingxuan. Therefore, she believed that Hong Qingxuan must be together with Su Mo.
However, Su Mo was nowhere to be found.
“Brother Su Mo brought me here!” Hong Qingxuan replied with a smile.
“I knew it!” Qian Xunyue suddenly turned fierce and asked, “Where is he?”
“He has already left!” Qingxuan replied with a frown. She felt a hint of killing desire from her master when she mentioned Su Mo just now.
Although it disappeared very quickly, Hong Qingxuan was certain that she felt Qian Xunyue’s killing desire.
This made Qingxuan more confused. Su Mo did not want to see her master, and her master somehow wanted to kill him. What was going on?
“Where did he go? The city ahead?” Qian Xunyue asked as she glanced at the barely visible Ancient City. Her voice was chilling and emotionless.
Instead of answering her, Hong Qingxuan asked in a confused tone, “Master, what happened between you and Brother Su Mo?”
Qian Xunyue went silent with a hint of pain in her eyes.
After a short while, Qian Xunyue took a deep breath to calm herself down and said, “Qingxuan, from now on, you’re not allowed to meet or interact with Su Mo anymore!”
“Ah?” Startled and puzzled, Hong Qingxuan asked, “Master, is there a misunderstanding between you and Brother Su Mo?”
She was desperate to know the answer, because she could not accept her master’s order.
“There is no misunderstanding between us. This is your master’s order!”
Qian Xunyue shook her head and said firmly, “If you still want to see him, our master-disciple relationship would be over! I’ll not be your master anymore!”
Qian Xunyue was coercing Hong Qingxuan into staying away from Su Mo by threatening to sever their relationship.
That was definitely cruel!
Although she was cruel, it was for Hong Qingxuan’s own good. She did not want Su Mo destroying Hong Qingxuan’s innocense.
“No! No! No!” Hong Qingxuan was tearing up and shaking her head nonstop.
“Master, didn’t you say that you would no longer interfere with our relationship? Why are you forcing me to break up with him? Why?” Hong Qingxuan was agitated and shouting loudly. It was impossible for her to make a choice between Su Mo and her master.
She was extremely fond of Su Mo, so stopping her from seeing him was the same as taking her life away.
However, she could not sever her relationship with her master either. Qian Xunyue was her master and her friend. Their bond had long surpassed that between a normal master and disciple.
It was impossible for her to pick a side.
