Desolate Mind Scripture was her merit law, a foundational block of Immortal Demon System passed down by Everlasting Forefather .
Guo Jiahui has been training with this law ever since joining Mountguard . Alas, she showed no signs of improvement and limited accomplishments . Thus, she couldn’t move on to a more powerful merit law .
On the contrary, this merit law was too simple for Li Qiye . He just needed to listen to a couple of chants before gaining a full grasp of its mysteries .
He knew Everlasting Forefather the best in this world . They have existed together for millions of years . Moreover, he could easily figure out a law from a system on his own at his current level . Unfortunately, this proved to be an arduous task for Jiahui - something that could affect her future .
In this second, she felt a door opening inside her mind allowing her to see a whole new world . The light from there illuminated her path . She found hope for the future and this increased her determination and courage to tread onward .
It took a while before she regained her wits from this beautiful immersion .
“Thank you for your guidance, Senior . ” She bowed deeply towards him and didn’t know how to address the guy . She eventually chose to go with ‘senior’ .
Though Li Qiye looked quite young, she didn’t want to be wrong . A slow girl like her could still tell that he was a hidden master despite his current state . Otherwise, he wouldn’t understand this scripture so well .
Li Qiye sitting in his wheelchair didn’t respond at all to her bowing .
She had no idea what was going on with Li Qiye and the reason for his pitiful state . Alas, she restrained her curiosity since the guy might ignore her anyway .
She accompanied him for a while longer under the sun before pushing him back home .
In the next several days, he continued to be sleeping just like before . She realized that he might not be in a vegetative state but couldn’t come up with another answer . Thus, she resumed her normal duty in taking care of him .
However, she stopped talking as much after finding out, no longer confiding in him about her days .
His imprinted law benefited her greatly and allowed her to understand the scripture . Her cultivation started becoming smooth with great improvements, almost like a fish returning to the water .
She quickly surpassed many peers in a short time . Her master praised her many times, thinking that it was a little miracle and that it was thanks to his teachings .
With this, her state of mind naturally improved and this also played a positive role in her cultivation .
On this night, she and Li Qiye observed the stars . Normally, she would be talking nonstop to him right now . Alas, she became afraid of him after the previous awakening .
“Why aren’t you talking anymore?” Li Qiye suddenly asked with his eyes open .
“Se-senior . ” She was still startled but fared much better than last time .
“You’re awake now?” She thought that he was alternating between consciousness and otherwise .
“It has been peaceful without your yabbering . ” Li Qiye said .
“I… I’m afraid of disturbing you, Senior . ” She became awkward and lowered her head .
“I’m only eighteen so don’t call me Senior . You may call me Young Noble instead . ” Li Qiye closed his eyes .
The girl wanted to chuckle but didn’t dare to; her lips curled into a faint smile .
“Yes, Young Noble . ” She nodded, finding herself to be very obedient before him for some unknown reason even though he couldn’t move at all .
Li Qiye seemingly had a natural dominating affinity over other living beings . His words must be obeyed even though he didn’t exert an imperious aura right now . This made Jiahui feel quite strange .
This brief conversation relaxed her . She slowly got used to his style and became normal again, chatting with him while taking care of his daily essentials .
She didn’t mind a lack of response from him, thinking that he has entered a deep slumber once more .
She didn’t know when he would wake up again and wanted to help . Alas, she didn’t know where to start . Even the reason for his need to sleep eluded her .
Days passed on and the status quo remained the same between the two . Li Qiye focused on refining the being in his dao heart while she took care of him .
Guo Jiahui brought home a senior sister today . The girl wore a red dress and was slightly older than Jiahui, also more noticeably gorgeous .
“Young Noble, this is my senior sister . ” Jiahui introduced the two .
“Young Noble . ” The girl bowed respectfully towards Li Qiye .
Alas, the “cripple” in the wheelchair didn’t respond, still deep in his slumber .
The girl seemed unsure and looked over towards Jiahui . The latter pulled her away and whispered: “Let’s make something tasty . ”
The two then became very busy in the kitchen .
The older girl’s name was Zhao Zhiting, Jiahui’s best friend in Mountguard . She joined the sect earlier and had the status of First Sister .
Jiahui didn’t stand out in any way so most peers didn’t give her the time of day . Only Zhao Zhiting watched over her like a sister and helped her with various matters . They slowly became friends and sisters as a result .
Zhiting had better talents so her cultivation was also stronger than Jiahui . However, Jiahui improved by leaps and bounds in recent days and almost caught up with her . This made her very curious .
