“Right, because Im also a cultivator like them.
I just hide the air of cultivation well, so you cant sense it,” said Gu Ning.
Then she deliberately released the air of cultivation to let Zhan Zhiyin sense it before hiding it away.
“You…” Zhan Zhiyin was taken aback.
To her astonishment, Gu Ning was also a cultivator and could hide it as she liked.
In that case, she must be at a very high level.
She originally thought that Gu Ning was a mortal and could be together with Leng Shaoting, so it wouldnt be a problem if she wanted to be together with Leng Shaoming.
However, Gu Ning was also a cultivator.
“Tell me, what do you want to do” Gu Ning asked.
She now looked cold and wasnt as friendly as before.
Zhan Zhiyin took a deep breath.
Since Gu Ning already knew she was a monster, it would only cause her trouble if she refused to admit it.
“Well, I just want to be together with Leng Shaoming,” said Zhan Zhiyin sincerely.
It was her real thought.
“Why Although you two know each other, you arent familiar, so you cant do that just because you like him,” said Gu Ning.
She didnt believe that Zhan Zhiyin did it just because she liked Leng Shaoming.
Gu Ning didnt deny that Zhan Zhiyin might really like Leng Shaoming, so she wanted to be together with him.
After all, Gu Ning wasnt sure whether they were really unfamiliar with each other.
Sometimes, people liked each other precisely because they were unfamiliar and had a good impression of one another.
If they got too familiar with each other, they would somehow hate one another.
Different people had different opinions, so Gu Ning wouldnt force other people to agree with her.
I actually have no special affection for him, but I do want to be together with him.
After were together, Ill treat him as best as I can.
I wont betray him.
If you want a reason, I just want to return his favor,” said Zhan Zhiyin.
It was true that Zhan Zhiyin badly wanted to be together with Leng Shaoming simply to return his favor.
Left with no choice, Zhan Zhiyin had to tell Gu Ning her story.
“I am Zhan Zhiyin, but not really Zhan Zhiyin.
To be specific, this body is Zhan Zhiyins, but the soul isnt.
I used to be a monster fox living at the Heavenly Mountain for five hundred years.
About three years ago, Zhan Zhiyin went to have an adventure at the mountain covered by snow, but she accidentally fell down the cliff.
I was cultivating back then, and she hit me.”
“I was about to have a human shape at that time.
Because at the early stage of a monster becoming a human, there is only a strand of invisible soul.
The soul needs to absorb magical power and cultivate for a long time to become a concrete entity.
When Zhan Zhiyin hit me, my soul entered her body and I became her afterwards.”
“Its the story between me and Zhan Zhiyin.
The story between Leng Shaoming and me also happened at the Heavenly Mountain.
Five years ago, I didnt have a human shape yet.
I was attacked by a mortal while cultivating.
Leng Shaoming showed up and saved me.
I thought it would be the end of us, but I met Zhan Zhiyin.”
“Because I have her memories, I know Grandpa Zhan and Grandpa Leng are good old friends.
I know Leng Shaoming too, but we are just not familiar.
Ever since then, I have had the idea of returning Leng Shaomings favor by marrying him,” said Zhan Zhiyin.
Not every monster was evil, and there were kind monsters too.
Zhan Zhiyin was grateful to Leng Shaoming for saving her life, which proved that she had a sense of gratitude.
Gu Ning was quite surprised that the monster foxs soul could possess Zhan Zhiyins body, which was basically the same as her soul in Gu Nings body.
“There are many ways to return ones favor.
You dont have to marry him.
Its not allowed, so youre not returning his favor; youre harming him,” said Gu Ning.
She didnt approve of that, because it wouldnt have a happy ending.
If it happened to other people, she wouldnt care, but the Leng family was involved this time.
She must do something.
Hearing that, Zhan Zhiyin seemed upset.
She understood it as well, but she still wanted to return Leng Shaomings favor.
She still wanted to marry him.
However, she was unwilling to hurt him.
“Well, we wont interfere in Leng Shaomings personal affairs.
We just hope you wont harm the Leng family or any member of it.
Leng Shaoming is a grown man.
He can make decisions on his own.
If he can accept you after he knows that youre actually a monster, we wont stop him.
Youll bear the result on your own no matter what it is,” said Gu Ning.
She had this talk with Zhan Zhiyin not for Leng Shaoming, but for Master Leng and the Leng family.
As long as the people she cared about in the Leng family could be safe, she didnt care what Zhan Zhiyin did.
She only needed to make sure of Zhan Zhiyins purpose and see whether it was harmful for the Leng family.
Zhan Zhiyin hadnt done anything unacceptable before, so Gu Ning didnt bother to get rid of her.
For now, Gu Ning only sensed slight evil from Zhan Zhiyin, which meant she hadnt done any killings.
As a result, Gu Ning could believe that she wasnt an evil monster for the time being.
Gu Ning needed a further investigation to make sure of it.
Zhan Zhiyin was relieved.
She knew it was hard for Leng Shaoming to accept the fact that she was a monster, but the Leng family wouldnt separate them as long as Leng Shaoming accepted her.
There was hope! Since there was hope, she would try.
“You cant use magical skills on him.
You must allow him to be truly willing to accept you,” said Gu Ning.
“Of course,” said Zhan Zhiyin.
Even if it was difficult, she had a chance.
“Oh, dont do anything you shouldnt do, or…” Gu Ning said, but didnt finish.
This wasnt a warning.
She just kindly reminded Zhan Zhiyin to behave herself.
Zhan Zhiyin understood what Gu Ning was implying, so she said at once, “I know.
Ill never hurt ordinary people, but I wont hesitate to fight back if Im in danger..
I can only promise that I wont kill.”
