Before I Died, I Forcibly Kissed The Heroine - Chapter 49
Chapter 49 – Chen Qingluan’s Choice!
There was a dead silence in the room.
The crowd’s expressions were dumbfounded, and even Shu Shi froze.
“Imperial Censor Chen, what did you say?”
The bearded old man guessed that he had misheard.
Chen Qingluan said word for word, “I said, I believe what Shu Shi said.”
The bearded old man frowned and said, “Imperial Censor Chen, Shu Shi is a member of the Demonic path, have you thought about the consequences of saying that?”
Chen Qingluan glanced at him, “Are you threatening me?”
The bearded old man’s breath caught and his face turned red.
He never expected that Chen Qingluan would side with Shu Shi!
And with such a strong attitude!
Although Tianyi was not bad, it was only a first-class sect, and there was still a huge gap compared to behemoths like the Demon Extermination Division.
They couldn’t afford to offend the Demon Empress, but they couldn’t afford to offend the Demon Extermination Division either.
“Then Imperial Censor Chen has to give us a reason, right?”
The bearded old man gritted his teeth and said, “I can’t accept if my sect’s disciples die in vain!”
“The Demon Extermination Division will investigate this matter clearly.”
Chen Qingluan said, “An Hongdou just died, and you all arrived in afterwards, so obviously someone had passed on the news beforehand.”
“Call the person who sent the message, and find out what An Hongdou actually said.”
The bearded old man’s face changed and he said, somewhat unnaturally, “It seems to be a little servant, and I no longer know where he went.”
Hongdou had indeed asked someone to report the message.
The content was simple.
Shu Shi is here, kill him for revenge!
When the old man received the news, he rushed here, not to kill Shu Shi, but to stop An Hong Dou!
Even if Shu Shi had to die, he must not die in the Tianyi residence!
Unfortunately, he was a step too late.
Chen Qingluan’s eyes narrowed slightly, “In this Linfeng City there is not a single case that the Demon Extermination Division cannot investigate, so don’t forget the Holy Emperor’s command.”
The Holy Emperor has decreed that all people are equal under the empire, and fighting is prohibited within the city.
Anyone who makes trouble will be considered an enemy of the Imperial Dynasty.
When the foreign treasures are opened in Tianqu Mountain, either the Righteous people or the Demonic people will all gather here, and disputes are very likely to occur.
In order to protect the people of the city, the Imperial Dynasty must remain neutral.
This long-bearded old man naturally understood what was at stake.
If this matter was truly pursued to the end, Shu Shi would not fear the Demon Extermination Division, but the Tianyi residence would definitely not be defended.
“Back in Yulin City, Imperial Censor Chen lost to this demon, why are you now speaking for him?”
The long-bearded old man sneered.
The crowd was also whispering.
It was obvious that they all suspected that she and Shu Shi had some sort of ulterior motive.
Chen Qingluan’s face did not change and her voice was clear and cold, “That is my business, so you all don’t need to know, but if someone dares to cause trouble in the city ……”
She pushed her thumb lightly, revealing the sword blade, the sword qi raging like a shocking wave, “Don’t blame me if I’m not being polite.”
The crowd averted their eyes, not daring to meet her gaze.
The bearded old man thought twice and said with hatred, “Shu Shi, this isn’t over yet!”
With that, he turned to leave.
Shu Shi said indifferently, “Don’t forget to clean my room, I paid for this.”
The bearded old man stopped, stomped his feet angrily and walked out of the room with large strides.
With the elder gone, the crowd naturally did not dare to linger.
Before long, the three of them were left in the room.
Chen Qingluan said, “That old man is a guest from Tianyi Sect, his strength has reached the Late Stage of Nascent Soul Realm, so you’d better be careful.”
Shu Shi shook his head, “Actually, you don’t need to, this will only make people suspect you of colluding with the Demonic path.”
Chen Qingluan said indifferently, “My stance has been clear from the start, I have a clear conscience, what do I care about what others say?”
Shu Shi smiled and said, “Then why do you trust me?”
Chen Qingluan was speechless.
Just now, when she saw the way Shu Shi faced the accusations of the crowd but did not stand up for himself, she instinctively wanted to defend him.
“Although you were h*rny, you didn’t kill in doing so. And An Hongdou is not good enough for you to do violence to her.”
Shu Shi laughed bitterly, “How am I h*rny?”
Chen Qingluan glanced at Cen Yiren and said coldly, “You know very well in your own heart, continue your SM activities with that Big Bear Sister.” 1
She said and walked out of the room shaking her shawl.
Cen Yiren was so angry that she rolled up her sleeves and shouted, “What are you two talking about? Who is she calling Big Bear Sister?”
Shu Shi rubbed his temple.
It seemed that he could not get rid of the lustful man label.
Cen Yiren grabbed his shoulders and looked at him with a suspicious expression, “What exactly is your relationship with Chen Qingluan? Why did she not even care about her own position for you?”
Chen Qingluan was the imperial censor of the Demon Extermination Division and was known to be cynical and ruthless.
Even if Shu Shi had more reasons, the fact that he had killed three people was an indisputable fact, but she left it at that?
If he said there was no suspicious relationship between the two, she wouldn’t believe him.
Shu Shi said earnestly, “I guess she was impressed by my sincerity.”
“Sincerity? There is no one more evil in this world than you!”
Thinking of what had just happened, Cen Yiren gritted her teeth angrily.
She had actually been seen through by this man!
Shu Shi scratched his head, “It was an emergency, and I didn’t know you were in the bath ……”
“Your eyes are still staring so wide then!”
“…I can’t see them if I don’t open my eyes wide!”
“I, I’ll bite you to death!”
At the foot of the mountain, a crowd of cultivators gathered here.
The crowd was divided into two camps, with the Righteous people on one side and the Demonic people on the other; the two groups were clearly separated.
There were also scattered small groups of cultivators, all of whom had chosen to side with the Righteous path as well.
“I heard that this time Tianji Pavilion is also coming?”
“Of course, the Land of the Great Clouds is not far from here, so there’s definitely no reason to miss the opportunity.”
“Let’s hope it’s Fairy Zhan who comes, with such a prominent heavenly pride sitting here, I believe the demonic path will not dare to move.”
“It’s been a long time since I caught a glimpse of Fairy Zhan.”
“But this time, the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect has also come, and it is none other than the genius Holy-grade Perfect Shu Shi!”
“Holy-grade perfect? Really!”
“That demon even committed a murder at the Spring Breeze Pavilion last night!”
Just as the crowd was discussing, a green-clothed figure swept in from afar.
“This is Imperial Censor Chen!”
Without seeing her appearance, one could tell her identity from her incomparable sword Qi alone.
Demon Extermination Division, Chen Qingluan!
Chen Qingluan fell from the air and quietly walked to the side, grasping her long sword with the appearance of a figure who should not be approached.
The people from the Righteous path looked excited.
Although she was from the palace, she was still considered the pride of the Righteous path, and with her presence, the people of the Demonic path would not dare to go wild!
Only the faces of the people from Tianyi were slightly different.
At this moment, the crowd suddenly moved.
“It’s Fairy Zhan!”
“Fairy Zhan is here!”
A Daoist Priestess wearing a moon-white Daoist robe was seen slowly stepping into the air.
Her expression was cool and her eyes were calm, as if the white moon was in the sky.
It was none other than Zhan Qingchen.
Upon seeing her, Chen Qingluan couldn’t help but smile.
“Qingluan? You’re here too!”
The two laughed and hugged, their beautiful and stunning looks reflecting each other so well that even the sunlight seemed to dim by a few degrees.
1. Given what Shu Shi did to Chen Qingluan when he kidnapped her, the impression of Shu Shi as an SM is now even stronger and unstoppable.
