Transmigrated into the Cannon Fodder’s Daughter - Chapter 50.2
The diary began when Zeng Lunian was 20-years-old. Li Xiao didn’t understand why people wrote in diaries. Was it to make it easier to look back on your feelings?
According to the diary, after his grandfather’s death, Zeng Lunian was left alone to study his family’s Taoism. In order to do experiments, he used a tiger ghost to lure villagers into the mountain. But because of his antics, he was discovered by some Taoist priests and was chased away. When he was seriously injured, Zhan Jiayin saved him. (His love for Zhan Jiayin was depicted in the diary.)
Zhan Jiayin’s daughter, Li Qianfei, was not very lucky. She often got involved in messy situations. She fell into a pit while walking and encountered a robber, which made Zhan Jiayin get involved.
Using the ancient book, Zeng Lunian made use of the scales passed down in his family to make a magical treasure that could steal luck. He placed the scales on Li Qianfei and made her become the so-called Koi. But you could always turn good fortune into evil.
Zeng Lunian used some of the stolen Qi from Li Qianfei to cultivate himself, allowing his cultivation to progress by leaps and bounds. Because Zhan Jiayin and Li Qianxing were always around Li Qianfei, they were also able to reap some of the benefits.
While Zhan Jiayin was abroad, she was often bullied because of her weak appearance and Chinese heritage. All of her bullies were secretly taken out by Zeng Lunian, who had run into her coincidentally. He had accidentally found fake dragon pearls and was auctioning them off abroad, intending to follow the trail of forgeries to find the real dragons.
When Zhan Jiayin returned to China, Zeng Lunian utilized all of his skills to help Zhan Jiayin clear her obstacles. He destroyed the Feng Shui of the Xu family, broke the Feng Shui on the Hua Dance Building, and lured Zhan Jiayin’s opponents into believing in ghosts. In the process, he inadvertently learned that his ancestors had some legendary dragon blood. In order to awaken the bloodline, Zeng Lunian dutifully practiced his family’s Kungfu. He collected fear and resentment, slaughtered his childhood village, and made them believe it was the work of the demons. He was simultaneously hiding in Yun Miao Mountain.
According to his original plan, he was going to stimulate the demon power in his body this year. However, he hadn’t expected the scales on Li Qianfei’s body to be stolen. As a result, he was injured.
Li Xiao finished flipping through the diary with a frown on her face. She had let Zeng Lunian die too easily! His diary said there were at least a few hundred deaths on his hands.
She stashed away the diary as relevant physical evidence and destroyed everything else. By the time she had finished disposing of them, Zeng Lunian’s corpse had been ravaged by the ghosts.
Li Xiao sighed softly and recited a chant, allowing the ghosts to be reincarnated. As for the two beads, she kept them as a gift for Zhan Jiayin and her daughter. The residual evil Qi would be enough to give them nightmares.
Xiao Lu gave a surprised giggle. “You’re reciting the Yun Miao Sutra! Are you a disciple of the Yun Miao Sect?”
The spirits on Yun Miao Mountain had good relations with all the masters of the Yun Miao Sect, and in the past, they even went to listen to scriptures. There were more monsters on the mountain than anywhere else, partly because of the abundance of spiritual energy and partly because the Yun Miao masters always spoiled the spirits.
“I’m a disciple of the 16th generation of the Yun Miao Sect,” Li Xiao said. In fact, she was also the head of the sect. After all, she was the only disciple of the 16th generation.
Xiao Lu seemed happy. “No wonder I feel so comfortable with you!”
After having found a reason to believe in Li Xiao, Xiao Lu was very happy and became even more chummy with Li Xiao.
Li Xiao, who wasn’t in a good mood, smiled softly. “Take me to the temple.” She needed to pay her respects to her ancestors.
Although she could traverse the mountain on her own, why bother walking by herself when she had a mount?!
Xiao Lu was in a good mood so she turned back into a python, allowing Li Xiao to sit on her and admire the scenery.
The Yin Cave wasn’t far from the Yun Miao temples, so they quickly arrived. Although there were no more worshippers at Yun Miao temple, it was surprisingly clean and tidy.
The spirits in the mountain must have come to clean it because they had been friends for many years.
Li Xiao walked in, lit a few incense sticks, and paid her respects to her ancestors. As the head of the Yun Miao Sect, she knew where all the scriptures were kept. She quickly found them and took them with her.
Before she went back to civilization, she would need to find a suitable successor for Yun Miao temples no matter what.
When Xiao Lu saw Li Xiao, she was convinced that Li Xiao was a disciple of Yun Miao temples. There must have been some reason why Li Xiao hadn’t come back for all these years, but she must have learned of the spirits’ existence from the previous generations.
Although Li Xiao took the scriptures, she didn’t leave right away and strolled around the temples. The familiar environment made it feel as though she had never left.
Strangely enough, this world was different from her original world in many things. But it still had many things in common like Yun Miao Mountain, Yun Miao Sect, and the old spirits.
The sparrow spirits suddenly gave an alarmed cry.
Li Xiao looked over. “What’s wrong? Did you not save your manuscript?” Li Xiao knew that the sparrow spirit had to pull an all-nighter to work on her book’s manuscript to accompany Li Xiao.
The sparrow spirit shook her head. “I just remembered something very important!” She vigorously trembled.
“Xiao Xiao, you killed Zeng Lunian. What if Zhan Jiayin and Li Qianfei report you for murder? Will you go to jail? Are we going to have to go to the next world?”
The sparrow spirit’s voice cracked. She had been living comfortably for Li Xiao, so she was terrified at the prospect of having to live a life on the run.
Li Xiao was silent.
The sparrow spirit was pretty knowledgeable about humans!
