I Have Refined Qi For 3000 Years! - Book 6 Chapter 21
Speaking of this topic, Jiang Lan seemed a little unwilling to continue.
After closing the topic hastily, the little girl drove Bai Qiuran out and went into the house to rest by herself.
Days passed quickly. After Bai Qiuran had collected food for Jiang Lan in the daytime, he would go to the nearby human settlement to see if Li was still alive. At night, he made Wise Immortal teach him the spells about space.
At any rate, he finally had the True Qi, so he wanted to try difficult things.
Moreover, according to Wise Immortal, space spells were the prerequisite skills of time spells. To decipher the time runes in the god rune model, Bai Qiuran must first become proficient in space spells.
After a few days, relying on his own talents, it could be regarded as a fruitful harvest, at least Bai Qiuran currently had no problem opening up a simple small space on the object.
A few days later, outside Jiang Lan’s yard, two uninvited guests suddenly arrived.
The people who came were two gods, but they did not come in. Instead, they wandered outside the miasma ring near Jiang Lan’s house. It seemed that they also knew the power of the poisonous fog made by the righteous god of plague and poison.
When they came, Jiang Lan had already gone to work. Sensing their breath, Bai Qiuran walked out of the miasma range, and saw two blue-faced gods standing in the woods with a height of tens of meters.
“Excuse me, is the high god Bai Qiuran here?”
Seeing Bai Qiuran coming out, the two gods bowed very politely.
“I am Bai Qiuran, yes.”
Bai Qiuran nodded.
The two gods looked at each other, and then one of the gods took out a huge golden scroll from his waist and drew it apart and read:
“The high god Bai Qiuran, listen to His Majesty’s order.”
Bai Qiuran lowered his head slightly.
Maybe it was thinking that Bai Qiuran was a new-born god, and didn’t understand all the rules, so the two gods didn’t say anything, they just started to read:
“The new god Bai Qiuran is infinitely powerful and brave. He is specially appointed as the Mighty Marshal of the Eastern Army. From now he is in charge of the eastern land, guarding the tranquility of the mortal realm.”
“…Bai Qiuran took the order.”
Bai Qiuran raised his hands high and took over the huge golden scrolls that the two gods had put down.
It was estimated that it was also a deliberate temptation. The golden scrolls handed over by the two gods did not shrink but kept their original size and weight. When they were placed in Bai Qiuran’s hand, the surrounding tree trunks shook lightly.
But when they saw Bai Qiuran taking over the scroll as usual, and letting it shrink and hold it around his waist, they really showed a respectful look.
“The high god, please come with us.”
One of the gods looked at the house surrounded by miasma and whispered:
“It’s not auspicious here… After going back, His Majesty has prepared a place for you.”
Bai Qiuran just wanted to ask Jiang Lan what was going on, when suddenly she saw the little girl appearing on the road ahead.
The two tall gods also saw her, but at this time, the two giants seemed to have encountered something terrible and avoided it very badly. One of the gods whispered to Bai Qiuran:
“The high god, please excuse us for a while. We will come to you again later.”
“Well, go go go.”
Bai Qiuran nodded.
The two gods flew into the sky as if they had fled from something dangerous. Jiang Lan also saw this when she came over and asked:
“Are you leaving?”
“What godhood has the Emperor of Heaven bestowed upon you?”
“Something like… Mighty Marshal of Eastern Army?”
Bai Qiuran replied:
“It seems that he let me manage the Eastern Land.”
“It’s quite good. You are equivalent to one of the five great emperors on the earth, and the Eastern Land was the richest of them all. Although your poisition is still lower than the five great emperors, but it is enough to see that the emperor places high hopes on you.”
Jiang Lan nodded and said lightly:
“Go ahead. Goodbye.”
Bai Qiuran also gave her a hand:
“In the past few days, I would like to thank Miss Jiang for taking care of me. I don’t say thank you very much. If you need any help in the future, you can come to me. Bai Qiuran will definitely help you.”
Jiang Lan didn’t reply, silently walked past Bai Qiuran, then waved her hand with her back to him as the response.
After parting ways with Jiang Lan, he had been going around outside. Not long after, the two gods came up. Perhaps it was because Lu Wu had informed them in advance, they consciously took Bai Qiuran into the clouds and flew to the destination.
During the flight, Bai Qiuran asked:
“Can I ask you a little question?”
“The high god, please do not hesitate to ask.”
The two gods bowed their heads and said:
“We will tell everything we know.”
Bai Qiuran smiled, knowing that their “everything” was definitely a polite remark. But to him who knew nothing, any information was a gain, so he asked:
“Speaking of which, about the human race…”
“Human race? Ah, does high god care because they look similar to you?”
One of the gods laughed and said:
“They are indeed the best-looking race on this land. Speaking of which, apart from His Majesty the Emperor, you are the second deity we have seen that looks like a human. But you have to remember that we and they are two different races. You are born noble. For them, you can treat them as subjects, livestock, or even objects, but you must not sympathize with them and stand with them. You are a God, they are humans. Gods and humans are different.”
The problem was that I am actually a human being.
Bai Qiuran slandered a few words and then asked:
“So, how many human settlements are there on this land like the one next to me?”
“It’s not a lot. The human race is not a strong race in the first place. Thanks to us seeing that they are beautifully born and taking care of them, they barely survive. They surrendered to our feet in order to save their lives.”
One of the blue-faced gods replied:
“At present, there are about a dozen settlements in the human race, most of which are distributed in the vicinity. In other places, the human race cannot survive.”
Bai Qiuran nodded and then asked:
“So, what about girl Jiang Lan? She has been taking care of me these days. I don’t think she is a god with a bad personality… Why do you reject her so much?”
The two gods looked at each other, and then the other god lowered his voice and said:
“Because she is the Goddess of Plague, which is an unlucky charm.”
Bai Qiuran raised his eyebrows.
“Aren’t you saying that you know everything? Why do you perfuse me, do you think I’m stupid?”
“No, this little god dare not, dare not.”
The two gods hurriedly waved their hands.
“Then tell me the truth.”
Bai Qiuran nodded and said:
“Don’t worry, my mouth is tightly shut and I won’t go around talking nonsense.”
The two gods exchanged their eyes, hesitated for a long time, and finally confided the truth under Bai Qiuran’s gaze.
“Because she… she is the remnant of the previous dynasty.”
