Chapter 207: About Level 9 (Part Two)
“I don’t want him to flatter me.” Ma Lilian drank a mouthful of liquor and said while staring at the dark sky, “I also don’t want to be always rescued by others. Father, you are right. I need to improve! I will study in the Martial Arts Academy and then join the military! I will become the first female general in the history of Great Sui! No! The first female chief general!”
“Huh?” Ma Biao was stunned, and he asked with a bitter expression, “Can you change your goal?”
“No!” Ma Lilian clenched her fists and said decisively, “Why should men feel like they are better than women? Why can’t women go on the battlefield? I don’t believe in such things! I’m going to let everyone see that a woman can also dominate the battlefield with the red battle flag of Great Sui!”
Ma Biao sat onto the ground and murmured with his liquor cup in hand, “Dear, I have failed you. Our daughter… is truly possessed.”
Both Da Quan and Qi Lin didn’t get involved in the prior battle.
First, both were too weak. Second, they had to guard the outside, just in case that the assassin had accomplices.
On the way back, Da Quan and Qi Lin looked at Chen Qingshan with different looks on their faces. This woman was powerful enough for them to look up at.
Qi Lin was the driver of the horse-drawn carriage, and Da Quan was eating a chicken wing that was already cold.
Fang Jie stole this chicken wing from the celebration in the Royal Palace, and it made him look stingy.
In Fang Jie’s defense, he would save money by stealing food for Da Quan from the Royal Palace.
Inside the horse-drawn carriage, Chen Qingshan asked as she looked at Fang Jie who frowned hard, “What is going on?”
“I’m thinking about that lotus technique of the Buddhist Sect. If one is powerful enough, that white lotus could be considered invulnerable. Even when it shatters, the person could instantly escape. I don’t understand how; this makes no sense.”
Chen Qingshan nodded and said, “This technique sure is perplexing. However, when I was in my faction, my master told me that nothing in the world is absolutely good or absolutely bad. The user must pay a hefty price to use such a powerful technique. If every member of the Buddhist Sect could use this technique freely, then no sects or factions could stand up to it.”
“Perhaps.” Fang Jie shook his head.
“I know what you are thinking about,” Chen Qingshan said with a smile.
Fang Jie turned to look at her and asked, “What am I thinking about?”
“You are thinking that it would be great if you can learn this technique. Then, you can escape when you can’t defeat a powerful opponent, and you don’t even have to worry when fighting a level 9 master, right?”
Fang Jie rolled his eyes and asked, “Am I this unambitious?”
Chen Qingshan said with a smile, “Isn’t this your life goal?”
Fang Jie chuckled and said, “You have a point. You must beat your enemy, or you need to escape as soon as you can. This sure is a great technique. If I’m not wrong, did something inspire you to enter the level 9 realm? Even a level 9 cultivation master couldn’t kill that guy; this technique is great for escaping.”
Chen Qingshan shook her head and said, “I’m not at level 9 yet. Only one of my feet is touching the threshold. Also, it wouldn’t mean much if I become a level 9 cultivation master. The difference between level 9 cultivation masters is huge. Both Mr. Zhuo and Phoenix-Chirp Daoist are at level 9, but they might not be able to defeat Great General Luo Yao of Left Advance Guard together.”
“How come there aren’t more levels above level 9?” Fang Jie asked.
