Chapter 28: Seven Hearts Hollow Pill
When Tang Bufan was back at his abode, he angrily threw the jade ring that contained the three sword cultivation slips that he had picked at the third floor of the Red Heaven Library.
“This Nangong Yu is really too insolent. I won’t take this insult lying down. You’ve been warned!”
“What is the point of cursing someone when he isn’t around to hear it?” a beautiful and mesmerizing voice asked.
Tang Bufan was startled. There was another person in his abode and he was not aware of it.
He quickly turned around and saw the Golden Mask Devil Goddess.
“How did you get into here?” he asked weakly.
The Devil Goddess chuckled, “So what if this is the Heavens Ridge Villa? There are no experts here that can stop me from coming and leaving freely. So, why are you looking so gloomy today?”
Tang Bufan smiled weakly, “Nothing. It is just that I don’t really like some of the seniors here.”
The Devil Goddess laughed, “And that includes your master?”
Tang Bufan: …
The Devil Goddess walked around as she played with the curtains, “What if I am able to help you to seduce your master and help you to fulfill your fantasies of bedding her?”
Tang Bufan was thinking, “Actually I don’t mind bedding you too.” But he purposely said, “Oh? This won’t be such a good idea right? And why are you helping me?”
The Devil Goddess laughed, “If you are able to become your master’s favorite disciple then you will be highly respected in the Red Heaven Sword Hall. Moreover you’re helping me to deal with Qin Keqin who is my arch nemesis. It is a win-win proposal for the two of us.”
Tang Bufan nodded slowly and asked curiously, “So what do you propose to help me seduce my master?”
The Devil Goddess laughed coldly as she took out a crimson pill, “This is the Seven Hearts Hollow Pill. It is able to consolidate a golden celestial spiritual inner sea and make it easier to overcome to the golden supremacy level. It is perfect for someone like Celestial Shi Guanyin.”
Tang Bufan was startled, “I have heard of this Seven Hearts Hollow Pill before. It is worth a great fortune and is almost priceless. But even if I give it to my master, she may not be truly impressed by me. I may end up being just a tool for her to advance her own celestial level.”
The Devil Goddess nodded with a soft chuckle, “You are indeed smart. She will indeed just take the Seven Hearts Hollow Pill without blinking her eyes and she will soon forget it is you who have brought her this great gift.”
Tang Bufan was smiling bitterly when he had heard her, “So what is the point then.”
The Devil Goddess lifted the crimson pill in front of Tang Bufan, “Except that I have added something into this Seven Hearts Hollow Pill. When she has taken it, she will be craving for any man. Even the ugliest ones, she will not mind at all.”
Tang Bufan was startled but he was also delighted, “Therefore this is a golden opportunity for me to seduce her?”
“You are so right on the spot and you are so smart. Here, so take this Seven Hearts Hollow Pill and give it to her. I can promise you that she will surely take it as soon as you have presented to her. All you need to do is to sneak into her beauty quarter and get her.”
Tang Bufan was grinning happily as he took the pill but he was still hesitant, “It may not be easy for me to approach her. After all, she is a fifth realm expert and her perceptions are sharp.”
The Devil Goddess chuckled, “Don’t worry. After she has taken the pill, she will lose her spiritual perception momentarily. Then you will have the best opportunity of your life. Moreover I will be there to give you the signal. It is safer than safe.”
Tang Bufan was delighted, “Then I shall present this wonderful gift to her tonight.”
“I shall be away for a few hours. So this is the plan and here how I should give you the signal.” The Devil Goddess explained to him.
Tang Bufan was brimming with joy and he was chuckling nonstop, “Tsk, tsk!”
When the Devil Goddess had finished giving him the briefings, she had quickly departed.
Tang Bufan immediately made his plans.
He quickly approached an elder of the Red Sword Martial Hall and told him that he would like to seek an audience with Celestial Shi Guanyin to give her a gift. As for what the gift was, he wrote it in a sealed letter.
“Please tell master that this will be something that will change her celestial fate.” He said with a broad grin to the elder. “I will be in my quarter if she wants to see me.”
When the Devil Goddess had left Tang Bufan’s quarter, an ordinary protégé was quietly observing in the shadows.
She was none other than Lie Xingyuan.
“Why did sect leader put on that golden mask? Why did she go to Tang Bufan’s quarter for? Why is she trying to harm Celestial Shi Guanyin? What is her purpose?”
These were the questions that she was asking herself.
In order to find out more, she decided to follow her secretly.
