“What is it specifically that you want to do”

Ming Feizhen crossed his arms. “Hm… One thing in Kongcangs story doesnt add up for me. If he suspects Zhuo Fengru is responsible for killing Shaolins disciples, why did he go to Shennong At a surface level, the two arent remotely related.”

“Are you saying that hes withholding information”

“I trust Shaolin Temples monks far, far more than other sects. Dont ask me why because I wont tell you. He might have his reasons for not telling us everything; however, it suggests that Zhuo Fengru and Miguo Branch arent likely connected.” Ming Feizhen jerked his head up. “My initial guess was that Zhuo Fengru was the only person who knew Xu Clan had the item in their possession. Lets ignore the reason for that and how unbelievable it may sound. As long as he disclosed the secret, Miguo Branch could make end Xu Clan. Slice it how you like it, but nobody knows more about Xu Clan than he does.”

If the case didnt have an effect on his guilt or innocence, Hua Qing wouldve blindly argued otherwise. It wasnt the first time Ming Feizhen asserted Zhuo Fengru was the most likely culprit, but there was one point that Hua Qing had yet to understand. “… If we dont know the reason, lets find out what the reason is.”

“You must have too much time to kill, or do you have a crush on him I promised to help you, not to help you for the rest of your life. Now Im helping Xu Yanran, Lass Su and your shifu. Thats four people. Im raising my price.”

“The deal was that you clear my name, and I give you Repository Jade… By the way, is it really worth a hundred thousand Are you sure you can sell it for a hundred thousand”

Ming Feizhen shrugged. “Maybe. I dont know for sure what price itd fetch.”

“Doesnt Zhuo Clan have a hundred thousand What would he harm his best friend for”

Ming Feizhen didnt reply.

“Hes famous, accomplished, filthy rich and a notch above you at fighting.”

“Scratch that last one out. I was taking it easy on him.”

“Isnt it weird You think its weird for Liu Shan Men to investigate me. You think its weird for Venerable Kongcang to be on guard around him, too. Has it every crossed your mind that its weird for him to do what youre suggesting he did He has done many good deeds for many years.”

After a long silence, Ming Feizhen raised his hand. “Well roll with what you say.”

Hua Qing ducked under the table. “Dont hurt me! Do what you want! I wont say anything s-, huh What did you just say” Jumping up instinctively led to him hitting his head on the table. “Ah, that hurt! Did you say were going with what I say”

Ming Feizhen nodded. “You make sense.”

“… Didnt expect to hear you agreeing with my viewpoint.”

“Im a newbie to this world, so I probably dont know that much more than you. I merely act on my thoughts. If you dont share your opinion, Ill just do things my way. Thats all there is to it.”

Ming Feizhen had a lot of peculiar traits, but perchance he was similar to any other fourteen year old deep down, making blunders, needing friends and reminders to rein him in. Based on the things he said and did, it was quite likely that he didnt have anyone who could fill those roles around him all this time. Mayhap he was the outlier in this world because he was always progressing along a path that went against “normal”.

Hua Qing took a seat beside Ming Feizhen, then slapped the latters shoulder. “Bro.”


Hua Qing, bearing with the sting in his hand, smiled. “Lets become sworn brothers.”

That day, Hua Qing learnt what was called “spitting profanity without uttering a word” from the look on Ming Feizhens face.

“… All right.”

“Thats not what your expression says!”

“What can I do when I dont think highly of you”

“You just spoke your mind! Take that back!”

“What a waste of energy. After this drink, remember to die on the same day as I die.”

“Arent you being too casual about it! Kowtow with me. My knees are itchy! By the way, you stopped paying attention to me after you insulted me! I still havent paid you back for looking down on me!” Thirsty due to his rant, Hua Qing knocked back a cup of tea.

“Okay, brotherhood established. Lets head to bed.”

“Do you not have a single ounce of respect for me!”

“Your fault for being a Zhuo Fengru fanboy.” Ming Feizhen paused to wait for two familiar, pretty faces to pop in, then finished, “I respect your love for old men.”

Su Li and Xu Yanran fossilised.

“Thats not it. Its a form of resp-, oi! Ming Feizhen, you set me up again! Miss Su, Yanran, dont go! Im not some sick freak of nature! Dont just walk out! Hes spouting nonsense! Wait for me! Ming Feizhen!”

“Glad to see youre all happy. Night,” Ming Feizhen stopped at the door to turn around and give Hua Qing a smile, “Brother Hua.”


Knock, knock.

“Come in.” Zhuo Fengru gently shut his book.

Anyone who assumed Zhuo Fengru was illiterate because he was associated with bandits wa wrong. While true that he was purely invested in martial arts early in his life, once people started hailing him as Hero Zhuo, he decided it was time to live up to the name. Thus, he took up the pen, developing a habit of reading every night.

“Dad, I am not interrupting you, am I”

“Not at all, my young master. Since you are paying your old man a visit late at night, is it safe to assume you need more spending money”

Zhuo Yupin went red in the face. “I do have money, but I do not have enough to buy Yanran some jewellery… But I am not here to talk about this.”

“I know.” Zhuo Fengru gestured to the chair in front of him. “Sit.”

Zhuo Yupin kept fidgeting with his hands once he was seated.

“How much did Miguo Branch pay you for your father”

Zhuo Yupins fidgeting came to an immediate halt.
