Chapter 14: Is He This Kind To Everyone?
The Secret Servant division was located in the Capital, right next to the Imperial Palace.
Li Guoshi, Empress Dowager Xianyi’s confidant, had three Demon Slayers in the Secret Servant division. As its name suggested, they worked for the Royal Family to eliminate demons and ensure peace.
At this time, Qi Ci was looking around, somewhat surprised.
Even though this was the place where the Demon Slayers lived, there was no such thing as weird or mysterious furnishings. In fact, it looked like an ordinary mansion.
There were some maids in the courtyard, and when they saw Bian Zhonghua, they bowed their heads and gently saluted ‘Lord Bian’.
Qi Ci, who was following behind Bian Zhonghua, said: “This place is like a mansion, and you look like a Young Master returning home.”
Bian Zhonghua smiled, but when he was about to reply, he suddenly raised his head to look ahead.
Qi Ci followed his gaze forward and saw a man standing on the stone path in front of them.
It was a young man dressed with white clothes. His posture was slender and long, and he had a cinnabar mole at the corner of his left eye, which was quite eye-catching. In his hand, he was holding a mountain ink painted fan, and as he shook it from time to time, he smiled wantonly as he said, word by word, quite maliciously: “Are you back?”
Qi Ci, inexplicably, felt a sudden cold surrounding all around, and when he took a closer look, he saw that the young man’s feet were covered with ice! That thin ice produced a soft crackling sound, quite mysteriously.
Bian Zhonghua raised his eyelids and said: “It’s still cold in March, after all, it’s early Spring. Why are you fanning yourself?”
The white-clothed youth fanned even harder, until his black hair flew up: “What’s wrong with it? I look handsome with this fan, you’re just jealous because I’m beautiful. Do I look more beautiful or not? Tell me if I’m beautiful or not…. achoo, achoo….”
Before the young man could finish his words, he suddenly started to sneeze a few times. The ice on his feet also disappeared.
Qi Ci: “…..”
The white-clothed youth recovered from sneezing and his eyes fell on Qi Ci: “Huh? Who is this?”
Qi Ci was about to reply, but in a blink of an eye, the white-clothed young man had already appeared right in front of him. Qi Ci was so shocked that he took a step back violently.
The young man rubbed his chin and said: “He’s quite pretty.”
Bian Zhonghua said: “Don’t scare him, you can’t afford to scare him.”
Qi Ci’s heart tightened at the thought that Bian Zhonghua would tell the white-clothed youth about his life. However, after he said those meaningful words, Bian Zhonghua no longer spoke, nor did he try to explain.
This, on the contrary, made the young man misunderstand.
As the white-clothed young man looked back and forth between Qi Ci and Bian Zhonghua with astonishment, he fanned himself quickly, as if he was thinking about what to say.
Bian Zhonghua snatched the fan from the youth’s hand and said: “Don’t fan it. Even if you’re a weirdo who’s not afraid of the cold, it doesn’t mean that others won’t be afraid.”
The white-clothed youth’s eyes become even rounder.
Qi Ci felt numb by the way he looked at him as he blurted out: “I came here to find a job.”
The white-clothed youth asked: “What’s your name?”
“Since you dare to come to the Secret Servant division to ask for a job, you may recognize my name.” The white-clothed youth straightened his back, put his hands behind him, raised his head high and said: “That’s right, I’m the famous Qin! Yi! Cang!”
Qi Ci was at a loss: “Who?”
Qin Yicang: “…..”
Bian Zhonghua clenched his fist against his lips and laughed out loud: “Pfft.”
Qin Yicang circled around Qi Ci and said: “You don’t even know about the Demon Slayers and you dare to come to the Secret Servant division to ask for a job? Huh? Could it be possible that you have great skills? How about this? If you come under my clan, I’ll guarantee you glory and prosperity. How about that?”
Bian Zhonghua said: “You can’t afford him.”
Qin Yicang was surprised: “Huh?! I can’t? What on earth is he able to do? Can you draw life and death talismans?”
Qi Ci: “….. I can’t.”
“Are you a Master of Gu Cultivation then?”
“A Master of the Sword?”
“A Master in the art of Medicine?”
“Then what the hell do you use to kill demons?!”
“I can’t kill demons…..”
Qin Yicang picked up Qi Ci by his collar and threw him at Bian Zhonghua with a cold face: “I’m returning him to you.”
Qi Ci staggered, but he was tightly protected by Bian Zhonghua’s arms. After he helped him stabilize his body, Bian Zhonghua lazily looked at Qin Yicang: “What do you mean by returning? When did I even give him to you?”
Qin Yicang inhaled cold air and asked Qi Ci: “Do you know ‘charming’ techniques? Humph! You can’t use them on me, I have a sweetheart, and you can’t seduce me!”
Qi Ci: “……”
Bian Zhonghua whispered to Qi Ci: “Look, there’s something definitely wrong with him, right? What I said before wasn’t wrong.”
Qi Ci nodded: “Yes, you’re right.”
Qin Yicang said angrily: “Can you two lower your voices? I can still hear you!!!!”
Bian Zhonghua released Qi Ci and said to Qin Yicang: “Stop messing around, what do you want from me?”
Qin Yicang also calmed down his face, becoming serious: “Li Guoshi is urgently looking for you. You should go to the Hall now.”
“But….” Bian Zhonghua frowned and looked at Qi Ci.
“Do you want to send him to Steward Wu? I’ll do it for you.” Qin Yicang said.
“Alright.” Bian Zhonghua thought about it, nodded, and turned to Qi Ci to say to him: “Follow him, he’ll ask for a job for you. I’ll come see you later.”
Qi Ci nodded his head, and in the blink of an eye, Bian Zhonghua left. Qin Yicang stepped forward and put an arm around Qi Ci’s neck, pressing him down: “Hey, are you two in a relationship?”
Qi Ci was confused and didn’t know what to say.
But, he still knew one thing; if a person saved you from the fire and water when your life was hopeless, and then proceeded to protect you warmly and tenderly when your relatives and friends betray you.
Then, it meant he was really kind. No matter if he changed, Qi Ci wouldn’t dare to forget about his kindness.
Qi Ci thought about it and replied: “He saved me.”
Qin Yicang wasn’t surprised: “It’s his thing, helping others to the end, sending Buddha to the West1. Alright, let’s go, I’ll take you to find a job.”
Qi Ci followed Qin Yicang, when suddenly, he asked: “Is he this kind to everyone?”
Qin Yicang smiled: “He, ah, has a clear distinction between what he likes and what he hates. Even though he can be quite amusing when he’s kind, he can also be quite ruthless when he’s angry.”
Qi Ci nodded his head and no longer spoke, simply following Qin Yicang closely behind.
A new character!! What’s your first impression on Qin Yicang?
Ahh~ QC and BZH are still so cute (*n´ω`n*)
