But who was Ji Feichen?
As a gentle, humble, kind-hearted and slightly macho male protagonist, he didn’t even think about talking nonsense with Shan Wanqing who was holding onto her last breath.
Facing her rebellious remarks, Ji Feichen didn’t say a word, vacated his left hand and directly clicked her sleeping acupoint.
Shen Wanqing’s pupils shook like an earthquake.
Cultivation novels were shameless!
Before she could say “wait,” the word was stuck in her throat, and her consciousness fell into a dream state.
At the moment before she fainted completely into a coma, she finally realized that it was probably not the different kinds of male and female side characters that would hinder her from completing her task.
It was Ji Feichen, the dumb son of a b*tch himself.

Within just a moment of opening and closing her eyes, Ji Feichen had already half-stepped into the crematorium.1 Do you remember the phrase from Chapter 1? No? It’s a common phrase to describe how a male lead f*ks up and has to chase after the female lead by metaphorically chasing her to the crematorium.
Just when she was about to pretend to be asleep, assess the situation and think of a way to deal with it, she heard Ji Feichen’s words: “Ah Yao2 nickname for Feng Yaoqing , Wanqing to me is impossible to give up- “
Kind of touching…wait?
Who cannot be given up by you!
Ask me first! I can give you up! I very much can.
Shen Wanqing became clear-headed in an instant.
She gritted her teeth, endured the tearing pain in her temples and quickly opened up her eyes. She then straightened up her body and began to cough heavily and deliberately, trying to interrupt Ji Feichen’s dangerous speech.
Her meridians were already completely damaged, and such a cough made her whole body feel even more painful.
Sure enough, Ji Feichen’s words stopped abruptly, he lowered his head to look at the person in his arms, his voice was a little eager: “Are you awake?”
Shen Wanqing raised her head and glanced at Feng Yaoqing standing not too far away, she was holding back her tears and looking at her.
As a character who was written and described with a lot of effort by the author, even just from standing there, one could sense Feng Yaoqing’s ethereal quality that was shrouded with pride and elegance.
Even though Feng Yaoqing was currently sad, she still straightened up her back and raised her head with pride. She didn’t shed a single tear, instead she looked at the direction of the two with extra calmness.
There was a big problem.
As a woman, Shen Wanqing certainly knew that the more peaceful it seemed, the sooner this relationship would be over.
Thinking of this, she gritted her teeth and rolled off Ji Feichen’s body.
Her body became weak, and she heavily planted on the ground, choking out a mouthful of blood3this is real blood this time, not a metaphor ~.~ After taking such a fall, it seemed that her internal organs had completely moved about. Shen Wanqing raised her blood-stained hand to cover her chest that was violently moving up and down, trying to stabilize her breath.
“Wanqing!” Upon seeing this, Ji Feichen frowned and stepped forward quickly.
“Don’t come over.” Shen Wanqing held herself up and shouted harshly.
Ji Feichen was taken aback and stopped.
Shen Wanqing took a deep breath, raised her eyes to look at Feng Yaoqing, sniffled her nose, and said in a choked tone: “Sister Feng, I can’t die.”
Feng Yaoqing frowned slightly, but just looked at her without saying a word.
“That Painted Skin Ghost’s cultivation is not weak, and it is difficult to find her. Even if Brother Ji takes action, she can still escape smoothly. However, the Painted Skin Ghost has an almost crazy obsession with the skin she desires. If I don’t die, I can be used as bait and we can destroy her. But if I die, no one knows who the Painted Skin Ghost will choose next.”
Shen Wanqing seemed to be hanging on a thread, but she still tried to hold onto her last breath, every word stabbing at Feng Yaoqing’s soft spots.
“I can die, but if this ghost is not eliminated, her cultivation will become stronger, and then the lives of countless innocent people will be lost. Sister Feng, I believe you don’t want to see such a scene, right?”
In fact, this was indeed a scene at the end of the book.
Ji Feichen used Shen Wanqing to attract the Painted Skin Ghost and then completely destroyed her.
But because of this incident, he felt that he owed Shen Wanqing even more. As a vicious villainess, of course, Shen Wanqing immediately took advantage of the situation to act like a baby and shed tears in his arms, which made the female lead even more disheartened.
But at any rate, this would happen later on. Right now, it was required to get past this situation.
Sure enough, Feng Yaoqing seemed to be moved by her words. She lowered her eyes and furrowed her brows, as if she was debating the pros and cons.
At this moment, Ji Feichen opened his mouth in pain: “Wanqing, you know I will never use you as bait—”
“You will, you will, you will.”
Shen Wanqing acted swiftly and immediately shouted these words hoarsely to interrupt him, the last breath she was holding almost left her.
No wonder he was the male lead, he was too righteous.
He was desperately sending himself to the crematorium.
Shen Wanqing took a deep breath and didn’t fumble over a single word as she said to him: “I know that Brother Ji, you deeply know that Sister Feng is just like you, a person who has a heart for the world. She is a righteous and kind-hearted person who is tolerant and caring for the people of the world, which is why you brought me to Xuantian Sect to ask for medicine.”
I even kissed their *ss by praising the beautiful love of this couple, she thought.
Ji Feichen clenched his fists, his eyes seemed to be filled with disappointment and pain due to his sister’s assumptions about him. He pressed her lips together tightly, not saying a single world.
Shen Wanqing glanced at him.
Good brother, I know you are kind.
Just aggrieve yourself a little bit, otherwise we’ll die one after the other in this story.
The female lead was no wonder the female lead.
As the heroine, with the thought of “loving the world”, she determined the pros and cons almost without any hesitation.
Come, bring the Sustaining Soul Pill over,” said Feng Yaoqing, “Save her.”
Someone immediately said anxiously: “But…”
“Even if there are family rules, I cannot disregard human lives. What’s more, this is also related to the safety of the people.” Feng Yaoqing said in a firm voice, “If the elders punish me for saving lives, I will bear it alone.”
Actually, Feng Yaoqing could tell that Shen Wanqing was acting.
But it didn’t matter if she was doing so to survive, it was not important to Feng Yaoqing.
The important thing was that what Shen Wanqing said made sense.
Feng Yaoqing could not allow personal grievances to cause innocent people to suffer from this catastrophe.
Shen Wanqing was moved to tears.
After letting go of her worries, the feeling of a loss of strength slowly came about.
Just before she had been relying solely on her tenacious desire to survive. Now she could finally be relieved. After her whole body loosened up, the pain caused by her excessive range of emotions became clearer.
Shen Wanqing spouted a mouthful of blood4yes, this is real blood again, and everything went black.
As the secret treasure of Xuantian Sect, the Sustaining Soul Pill was very effective.
When Shen Wanqing opened her eyes again, most of the pain in Shen Wanqing’s body had disappeared. After moving her wrists, she didn’t feel the pain from her internal organs anymore.
The meridians had been re-connected, and most of the demonic energy in her body had been passed out.
The only thing left was the weakness of her body caused by the serious injury.
Shen Wanqing sighed and turned her head.
Then, she faced the cold and arrogant face of Feng Yaoqing, and a pair of cold eyes.
Because the Sustaining Soul Pill required the spiritual power of a Xuantian disciple to promote the integration, and Shen Wanqing’s injury was too serious, only Feng Yaoqing could do so personally.
Thus, during this period of time, she would treat Shen Wanqing every day.
…thinking about it this way, you could understand why Feng Yaoqing got so angry that she called off the engagement.
Imagine treating the homewrecker’s illness everyday, but as soon as she wakes up, she clings onto Ji Feichen like a baby, who wouldn’t call it off?
The lawful wife meeting the homewrecker.
And it was a small room with just them two.
It was quite awkward.
Feng Yaoqing saw that she was awake, but didn’t say a word and stretched out her hand to take her pulse.
“Thank you.” Shen Wanqing just woke up, her voice was still a little hoarse.
“Ji Feichen is not here.” Feng Yaoqing said in a cold tone, “There is no need to act.”
The atmosphere was frozen.
Shen Wanqing thought about it.
If she wanted to stay with these two people for a long time and prevent them from breaking up, the best solution was to become a good girlfriend of the heroine.
But if she said to the female lead now: “Let’s become sworn sisters.”
She would probably be hit out of here.
So this matter still had to be taken slowly.
She pondered for a while, then decided to relax the atmosphere first by finding something to say: “Sister Feng’s dress is really beautiful today, and it matches your hairpin.”
There was no reaction from Feng Yaoqing, she raised her eyes and glanced at her, and then said lightly: “You have said this before.”
That was unexpected.
The original character had a sweet mouth.
“Then you also said, but it’s a pity that Brother Ji doesn’t like women dressed like me. I don’t have the slightest bit of femininity, so he will only treat people like me as a companion to exterminate demons, not someone to love.” Feng Yaoqing glanced at her and said faintly, “By the way, you also advised me not to overthink things.”
I made a mistake.
How could the original character have praised the heroine?
Shen Wanqing was a little embarrassed. She racked her brains and prepared to change the topic: “Was that not because I was ignorant before? In fact, it’s not just the dress, but also the beauty of Sister Feng…”
“You have said this before too, you told me to dispel the idea of using my face to steal Ji Feichen away and that he would not like a woman based off just looks. You told me to recognise my place early.” Feng Yaoing said. “So, you don’t have to use this sentence to ridicule me again.”
The original character was worthy to be called the evil villainess, how could she say things in such a weird manner?
Shen Wanqing froze for a long time, then gritted her teeth and said with a wry smile: “Actually, I can see that Brother Ji cares about Sister Feng very much.”
“You said this too.”
Shen Wanqing: “…”
Feng Yaoqing finished checking her pulse, withdrew her hand, looked at Shen Wanqing’s eyes, and said word for word: “You said, it’s just the care of a companion, he also has the heart to love random cats and dogs, you told me not to think that I was special.”
All the good and bad was said by the original character.
Shen Wanqing was choked from being unable to speak.
“Ji Feichen has gone to find medicine for you. He is not in the Tianxuan Sect, so you don’t have to act in front of me.” Feng Yaoqing stood up and said indifferently, “Your physical injury has basically recovered and will not hurt your life. Taking some rest will help you heal, so I won’t bother you anymore.”
After speaking, she turned and left.
‘Looking at it this way, although Feng Yaoqing seemed to be a lot colder to Ji Feichen, but because of my forced explanation, at any rate, she is not angry enough to break off the engagement,’ Shen Wanqing thought.
Shen Wanqing was able to settle down her worries a bit.
And according to the original novel, Ji Feichen said that he was looking for medicine for Shen Wanqing, but in fact, he discovered that Feng Yaoqing was hurt so he found some special herbs to help cure her.
It’s a pity that according to the original story line, Feng Yaoqing had already broken off the engagement and avoided seeing Ji Feichen.
Therefore, Ji Feichen could only entrust the special herb to someone else. Until the end, the heroine didn’t know that the hero had found the herb for her.
But now that Shen Wanqing was not acting up, the engagement probably was not to be broken off as fast.
Thinking about this, she was prepared to first go to sleep comfortably, and also rest her tortured body.
However, as soon as she closed my eyes, she heard a few people conversing outside the door.
“Miss Feng, the Tianxuan disciples are ready to go to the back mountain at any time.”
The back mountain?
Is the Tianxuan Sect patrolling tonight?
Shen Wanqing stood up immediately, and a cold sweat broke out on her back.
Almost forgot the villain, the great demon king.
In the plot of “Betrayal,” while leading the other disciples to patrol the back mountain, Feng Yanqing happened to pick up this male side character who was seriously injured. After taking good care of him, she succeeded in turning him into her suitor. Together, he joined the demon fighting squad and made Ji Feichen jealous from time to time.
This side male character was the villain Xie Wuyan.
He had forcibly broken out of the seal that controlled him and escaped from the Sealed Demon Cave, only to fall on the Tianxuan Sect back mountain with his last breath, and then was rescued by the female lead.
He suppressed the demon power in his body and kept pretending to be harmless to follow the protagonist team. When the protagonist team finally found the Solitary Light sword that could seal him, he immediately took the sword.
He also abducted the female lead.
Speaking of what made Xie Wuyan scary, it did not lie in how cruel his methods were.
It was his ability to disguise.
The author revealed the identity of Xie Wuyan only in the second half of the book. Before that, almost all readers thought that he was the same as Ji Feichen, a valiant, courageous and philanthropic demon eliminator.
Shen Wanqing could not let Feng Yaoqing save Xie Wuyan.
Nor could she let this paranoid demon king develop feelings for the heroine.
What’s more, it was her own mission to stop this cruel “black lotus”5Black lotus is a saying to describe someone who looks weak and gentle but is scheming on the inside. from killing the human realm, she couldn’t easily let this opportunity pass.
She rubbed her chin for a long time, and finally thought of a way—
Taking advantage of the fact that this demon king was on his last breath and severely wounded and powerless…what about, simply stabbing him to death?
Shen Wanqing felt like she was a genius.
As such, the genius herself immediately found a dagger and began her plan.
[The author has something to say: Shen Wanqing, a vicious villainess who always prioritizes completing the task by first stabbing the supporting roles.]
[Translator Note: Ji Feichen is literally sending himself to the crematorium without knowing haha! Also, I want to apologise for my typo for Feng Yaoqing’s name, I have fixed it now! Happy reading! ]
