Xuanniao1reminder that xuanniao is a type of mythical divine bird that resembles a black sparrow was feeling a little flustered now.
As a great demon who had been worshipped by several generations of monarchs, who had stood on Xie Wuyan’s shoulder and watched countless demons bow their heads to him, and who had fought tens of thousands of cultivators…it stood to reason that he had seen it all.
Thus, when Shen Wanqing said she was going to stew it, Xuanniao scoffed.
How could a measly human dare to be so arrogant? I am a dignified divine bird!
Until Shen Wanqing really took it to the kitchen, borrowed a pot from the cook, and started to seriously boil water and add firewood, and even cut white radish as an ingredient-
Xuanniao whose beak was covered went: “Cuckoo!!”
The cook on the side watched happily: “This pigeon is quite lively.”
Xuanniao: The disrespect! Who are you calling a pigeon? I am a divine bird! Divine! Bird!

Jydt! Vy! Uzydt!
The bottles and cans in the kitchen were knocked over by the bird.
Upon seeing this, Shen Wanqing resignedly put down the kitchen knife in her hand and rolled up her sleeves to catch it.
So, one human and one bird teamed up and almost blew up the kitchen.
Seeing that the situation was not right, the cook broke out in a cold sweat. In order to save his kitchen, he sneaked away and went to complain to Feng Yaoqing.
When Feng Yaoqing and Ji Feichen arrived, Shen Wanqing just happened to catch Xuanniao, and its body was splashed with all sorts of colors.
However, the kitchen was already a mess, and even dust was falling from the ceiling.
Ji Feichen frowned: “Wanqing, you are…”
“Ah… I caught a pigeon.” Shen Wanqing was taken aback, and quickly put the hand holding Xuanniao behind her back, explaining, “I wanted to stew some soup for Sister Feng.”
Xuanniao was so angry that it began to flap its wings again.
You are a pigeon! Your whole family are pigeons!
Feng Yaoqing seemed to be startled. She glanced at the cook next to her and gave a questioning look.
The cook touched his head and said, “It is true. Miss Shen came to borrow a pot from me and said that she wanted to make soup for Miss Feng. I saw her sincere attitude and let her use it. But I didn’t expect—”
Unexpectedly, the kitchen almost burned down.
Ji Feichen frowned and was about to say something, but was stopped by Feng Yaoqing.
“Soup?” She repeated tentatively.
Shen Wanqing nodded, and sniffled her nose as if she was wronged, expressing sincerely: “Because during this time Sister Feng worked too hard to take care of me.”
Feng Yaoqing walked in front of Shen Wanqing and stared at her for a while.
Shen Wanqing’s eyes didn’t shy away at all.
After a long time, Feng Yaoqing lowered her eyes, thought for a moment, and her tone became softer: “In this case, I will help you.”
Xuanniao’s eyes widened in horror.
It had to escape from this place!
After speaking, it lifted its beak and pecked Shen Wanqing’s index finger vigorously.
Shen Wanqing frowned in pain and let go of it subconsciously.
Xuanniao flapped its wings and flew right out.
The kitchen door was getting closer and closer, it was about to leave this room to regain its long-lost freedom.
But at this moment, it bumped into a person’s shoulder abruptly, making it dizzy.
Xuanniao’s heart was dead.
It seemed that this great divine bird was about to die in the hands of this poisonous woman today.
At this moment, a familiar male voice suddenly sounded.
Xuanniao raised its head in surprise, hot tears almost poured out.
His Royal Highness! It was His Royal Highness!
Xie Wuyan lowered his eyes and scanned the little pet who was in a utter mess, and paused for a while. He then stretched out his hand and calmly grabbed its wings, walked into the kitchen, looked at Shen Wanqing, and said with a smile: “Miss Shen?”
Shen Wanqing turned her head away with a guilty conscience, her expression was filled with ‘don’t ask me, I don’t know anything, this is not related to me’.
Then Feng Yaoqing kindly explained for her: “Oh, it’s Master Xie. It’s nothing, this is the pigeon caught by Ms. Shen. She said she was preparing to stew soup, but she didn’t realise things got out of hand.”
“Oh?” Xie Wuyan swept his gaze to the little beast in his hands, with the corner of his lips curled. He then walked up to Shen Wanqing, reached out and handed it to her, “In this case, Miss Shen, take it.”
Shen Wanqing: “…”
This was a threat.
This was definitely a threat.
Who would dare eat the pet in front of the owner?
Xuanniao felt as if it had been hit by a heavy blow, it started crying, choking, and flapping its wings in the direction of Xie Wuyan. Even though its mouth was tied up and unable to speak, one could vaguely feel its sorrow and grief.
It tried to make Xie Wuyan feel its intense emotions with its small eyes.
Your Royal Highness, don’t you remember me? Back then, I was a treasured pet who would fight alongside you in the battlefield. Although most of the time you were the one fighting and I was mocking others by your side, the deep connection between us cannot be erased!
Feng Yaoqing glanced at it, sighed softly, and then lamented: “It seems the bird and Master Xie have a fated connection.”
As soon as Xuanniao heard these words, it nodded its head like a chick pecking at rice.
Upon seeing this, Ji Feichen shook his head, raised his hand and patted Shen Wanqing’s shoulder, persuading: “All things were created with a spiritual purpose, since this pigeon carries so much spirituality, it’s not apt to continue hurting its life.”
Xuanniao’s head nodded even more happily.
In the face of life and death, if it was a pigeon then it was a pigeon!
The owner of the pet was here and even the two protagonists were pleading for it, Shen Wanqing did not intend to continue to seek her own demise in front of these people.
She gritted her teeth and nodded: “In this case, we let it go, right?”
“No need.” Xie Wuyan laughed, let go of his hand, raised his finger to the air, and released the restraint on Xuanniao’s feet.
Xuanniao immediately stumbled and threw itself at him, standing on his shoulder.
“It seems that it is destined to be with me.” Xie Wuyan looked at Shen Wanqing, with a deeper smile reaching his eyes, “Miss Shen, do you mind if I keep it by my side?”
Shen Wanqing: “…I don’t mind.”
Xuanniao, who was standing on Xie Wuyan’s shoulders looked quite prideful, and even raised its small head, looking at Shen Wanqing with contempt in its eyes, filled with an arrogance that translated to ‘you’re toast.’
Shen Wanqing regretted everything from the beginning.
If she had known this would happen, she would have definitely chosen to throw it directly into the firewood and burn it, because that would have been much faster.
Regarding the matter of leaving the Sect to go and catch demons, Ji Feichen called Xie Wuyan away, they were seemingly going to discuss in detail.
The two of them left side by side, but Feng Yaoqing was not in a rush to leave. She glanced at the depressed Shen Wanqing next to her, then turned back to look at the cut side ingredients on the cutting board, seemingly deep in thought.
“Miss Shen.” Finally, Feng Yaoqing began to speak. She pursed her lips, paused for a long time, and then said two words softly, “Thank you.”
After speaking, she turned and left.
Congratulations to the host for completing the hidden mission and easing your relationship with Feng Yaoqing]
Shen Wanqing was taken aback, she stared at Feng Yaoqing’s silhouette as she left, and smiled softly.
Although Feng Yaoqing looked cold and distant, she was actually a soft-hearted person. The author once described her by saying, “No matter how many times she gets deceived, she still sees the good in everything.” She was a real demon eliminator who had a heart full of compassion.
It was precisely because of this that she was hurt again and again in the original novel.
Although she failed to get rid of the Xuanniao this time, fortunately, she successfully broke the ice between her and Feng Yaoqing.
No loss for her.
