Chapter 17 - The Beautiful Senior Martial Sister Caressing His Head

 

17 The Beautiful Senior Martial Sister Caressing His Head

How could he react? Of course, he gladly accepted it.

Not only was she extraordinarily powerful, but also breathtakingly beautiful. Who wouldn’t love such a senior martial sister?

However, Yan Zhen appeared hesitant.

Why the hesitation? Because that’s how the script was written.

As a dedicated actor, he naturally had to fully express the nuances.

After contemplating for quite a while, Yan Zhen finally made up his mind, kneeling down and loudly declaring:

“This disciple greets the Senior Martial Sister!”

Bowing, prostrating, kowtowing – he performed almost all the proper rites of accepting a master, except for the “tea ceremony” as there was no tea available, which was an unavoidable circumstance.

“Very good.” Chen Xi nodded in satisfaction, her chilly expression softening somewhat. “Little one, what is your name?”

Yan Zhen had already immersed himself in his role and respectfully answered:

“In response to the Senior Martial Sister, this disciple’s name is Yan Zhen – ‘Yan’ as in the brilliant flames, ‘Zhen’ as in true and real.”

Upon hearing his name, Chen Xi’s eyes glazed over momentarily, recalling her past life, and her expression grew even warmer.

“Yan Zhen? Then I shall call you ‘Zhen’er’. Is that alright?”

“Er, of course it’s alright.”

Although simply calling him Yan Zhen would be more consistent with the script, his grandfather had also called him Zhen’er, so it felt natural.

“Zhen’er, I have never taken in a disciple before. You are the first and will also be the last, holding extraordinary significance. On our first meeting, I have no precious gift to present you. So allow me to instead unravel all the mystical meridian gates throughout your body. I shall make up for the gift later.”

“Unravel all the mystical meridian gates?” Yan Zhen was immensely surprised. “The Senior Martial Sister can even accomplish such a feat?”

Meridian gates referred to the checkpoints along the energy channels. Only meridians with open gates could circulate mystic power, also known as mystic meridians.

The more mystic meridians one had, the faster the mystic power could flow.

Ordinary people only had the eight extraordinary meridians open, while the gates of the twelve primary meridians were usually sealed, only opened by a few rare talents.

However, highly skilled alchemists could forcibly unravel the gates of the twelve primary meridians using external forces, allowing ordinary people to become talents!

Wow, the beautiful senior martial sister is so powerful—even though he had already known this from reading the script.

However, the senior martial sister’s abilities didn’t stop there. Not only could she unravel the gates of the twelve primary meridians, but she could even unravel the gates of the secondary meridians, allowing all the mystic meridians in the body to reach thirty-six, supplemented by seventy-two subsidiary channels. Subsequently, at the Mystic Master realm, he could open one hundred and eight apertures, forming the formidable “Hundred Apertures Gathering Spirit” state.

“It’s just some minor tricks, nothing difficult,” Chen Xi calmly said. “If you wish to learn, I can teach you later.”

“Great, thank you Senior Martial Sister!”

Seeing Yan Zhen’s excitement, Chen Xi found it hard to maintain her expressionless demeanor, coughing lightly before continuing:

“Unraveling the meridian gates will cause intense pain. It’s best to have medicinal aid to alleviate the suffering. Zhen’er, go prepare three stalks of ‘Blood Drop Grass’, two ‘Magnolia Blossoms’, one water-patterned pearl, and a large bucket of water. Once you’ve prepared them, I’ll unravel your meridian gates. These are just common pain-relieving materials that should be easy to obtain.”

“Oh~”

“Oh, right. Zhen’er, come over here for a moment.”

Chen Xi raised her hand beckoning him, causing her wide sleeve to slide down, revealing a dazzlingly fair wrist.

Go over? Yan Zhen blinked, suddenly recalling a similar scene from the script.

She must be about to impart him with the mark allowing free entry into this space.

In the script, however, Chen Xi only let him in during the middle part and imparted the mark then. This was happening sooner.

“Come a bit closer so I can reach you.”

Invisible chains bound Chen Xi in place, restricting her movements, so Yan Zhen had to approach her.

Thus, Yan Zhen took a few more steps forward and knelt before Chen Xi.

Seeing the beautiful senior martial sister’s face up close, Yan Zhen couldn’t help feeling nervous – not acting, but his genuine reaction.

For she was simply too beautiful. Whether it was her silver hair, voluptuous figure, the faintly elegant fragrance wafting from her, or that fresh, transcendent, extraordinary beauty – it all greatly appealed to Yan Zhen.

Yet, in this world without a female lead, he only held reverence for his senior martial sister, harboring no improper thoughts.

Ridiculous ideas like romancing one’s master could lead to a wretched death!

Chen Xi also stared unblinkingly at Yan Zhen, showing no awkwardness even when their eyes met. Instead, she felt an overwhelming urge to caress his head.

In her previous life, she had always wanted to do so, but refrained to maintain her aloof senior martial sister persona.

Though there was one time she did stroke his head, to comfort him after he got injured yet still insisted on fighting, leaving him quite dejected after her scolding.

Little did she expect that single caress would leave her addicted to the feeling.

—No, that would be too abrupt and scare him!

Her rational mind warned, but Chen Xi ultimately couldn’t resist, her jade hand trembling slightly as she placed it on his head, gently stroking his hair.

Her disciple’s soft tresses brushed against her palm, shattering the icy facade on her face in an instant, replaced by a tender warmth that caused the corners of her mouth to unconsciously curve upward into a slight smile.

Seeing him with hunched shoulders, bowed head, obedient yet bashful – such an adorable sight made Chen Xi’s heart want to melt.

“Zhen’er.”

“Present!”

“Stretch out your hand.”

“Yes!”

Yan Zhen seriously complied, like an elementary student eagerly answering the teacher’s question, nervous yet striving to prove himself.

Without removing her caressing hand, Chen Xi extended her other hand and covered Yan Zhen’s palm with her own.

The senior martial sister’s hand is so soft~

As he thought this, Yan Zhen felt a scorching sensation on his palm, as if placing his hand above a burning candle’s flame – searing heat accompanied by a stinging pain.

She must be imparting the “Star Shifting Fire Seal” to him.

After a moment, Chen Xi withdrew her jade hand, and Yan Zhen immediately saw a blazing sun-like mark had appeared on his palm.

“Senior Martial Sister, what is this?”

“The Star Shifting Fire Seal. With this, you can freely enter and exit this place—just channel your mystic power into your hand when using it.”

“That’s so convenient, thank you Senior Martial Sister.”

Chen Xi withdrew her other hand without a sound, striving not to show her reluctance as she coolly said:

“Go on, return once you’ve prepared the materials.”

“Understood, Senior Martial Sister. I’ll prepare them right away.”

With that, Yan Zhen channeled his mystic power into his hand, causing the mark to heat up. In an instant, he vanished from sight.

Chen Xi instinctively reached out to grab him but grasped at emptiness, letting out a soft sigh.

“Why am I in such a hurry? I’m being foolish.”

After all, she had been reborn, so she would have plenty of opportunities to make up for her previous life’s regrets.

This time, she didn’t just want to be his senior martial sister, but to become the most important person in his life.

She no longer wished to serve the tea at his grand wedding, nor receive his and his bride’s bows. Instead, she longed to share the marital cup with him and exchange marriage bows as husband and wife.

Raising the hand that had stroked Yan Zhen’s head, Chen Xi nuzzled her face against it, her expression one of infatuation.

“Zhen’er, your master loves you~”
