Poison Genius Consort 2: Emperor's Swallow Chapter 2 – Prologue (2)
He was dressed in white; had a tall, handsome, and godlike figure too. He looked young, but the laziness in his eyes transcended the world. It was as if he was a being who lived for thousands of years.
Gu Feiyan did not know his name, but because he liked to wear the color white, she called this master of hers “Bai Yi”.
Her master looked at her lovingly and sighed. “The eastern wind is blowing, and spring is on its way. My little Yan’er, another year has passed and you are a year older.
Gu Feiyan did not mention anything about her nightmare.
In the past ten years, every time she dreamed of that dream, she’d mention it to her master, and each time her master would reply that he was deaf, unable to answer her question.
Though she knew that to be a foolish lie.
Her master once said that nightmares are something that could never be spoken, that what he said was true and should be followed.
After that, she stopped speaking of this to him.
“Master, what good stuff do you have prepared for Yan’er this year?”
Gu Feiyan stretched out her hand anticipatingly—her big black eyes wore a touch of a smile as if stars shone brightly in them.
Today was her eighteenth birthday and it’d also be the tenth year since spending time inside the Ice Sea Spirit Realm. Her master said that she was like a lonely swallow, so he gave her the name “Gu Feiyan”. Her birthday was also set on the day she came to this place on a Spring Day.
Bai Yi raised his hand gracefully and summoned a small cauldron of thin air. He smiled lazily. “Little Yan’er, when you grow up, the Medicine King Cauldron… I will reward it to you.”
The Medicine King Cauldron had a divine flame within that could refine hundreds of thousands of medicinal recipes. The space within the cauldron could create hundreds and thousands of acres long of medicinal fields.
So… this was Master Bai Yi’s treasure!
Gu Feiyan staggered, shock filling her core, but soon, her eyes lit up in excitement. She hurriedly snatched the Medicine King Cauldron and hid it behind her back.
She coughed and earnestly said, “So… since Master gave this to me as a gift, you must not go back on your words!”
Bai Yi chuckled, a look that was thirty percent helpless and seventy percent doting. He gently rubbed Gu Feiyan’s hair and smiled softly. “Little girl, when did I ever go back on my words?”
Gu Feiyan felt that her master’s words seemed a little strange, but she didn’t think too much into it. She happily bit her finger and used her blood essence to make a contract with the Medicine King Cauldron, but at this moment, her master unexpectedly pushed her into the abyss that was behind her.
Gu Feiyan fell down, but fortunately, she managed to grab hold of the overgrown branch sticking out slightly. She was incomparably shocked, beautiful brows raised slightly.
“Master, what are you doing?!” She shouted. “Master…”
There was a slight reluctance in her master’s pleasant voice, but he remained. “Yan’er, you have to go to the Profound Sky Continent. One day, you will understand!”
Only then did Gu Feiyan realize he was not joking.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about!” She shouted in fright. “Master, save me… Save me…”
What responded to her was not the voice of her master, the crunching of the broken branches.
“Ah… Master, you bastard! You will regret it! You will definitely regret it…”
Gu Feiyan quickly descended down the abyss in a straight line. It was as if she’d fallen into a pit of endless darkness. This kind of feeling, it wasn’t the feeling of falling, but rather, it was her soul falling…
