Not all heart devil would kill you. In the process of cultivation, the average person would encounter several or even dozens of heart devils.
There was also many reasons for the heart devil to appear. Sometimes it was because some things have not been figured out, sometimes it was because there were some deviations during cultivation. There were many reasons, and all kinds of people were not clear about it all.
However, everyone knew that as long as it was not because of a heart oath, there was a possibility that it could be overcome, even if it was in the middle of crossing a tribulation, it was entirely based on the cultivation base and mood of each person.
Since it was a matter of a heart devil, Yang Chen was not too anxious. Anyways, with Shi Shanshan’s state now, there would be no need to worry, it would just have a little impact on the speed of her cultivation and there was no need to make a fuss about.
In general, the best way to solve the heart devil was to figure out the cause. It was hard to say at this time how long it would last, sometimes it was very long, sometimes it may be short and so it may be different.
Soon, the two people sat face to face in Shi Shanshan’s fine house. In the middle of the two there was an exquisite wooden table with a set of exquisite tea sets. Next to the table, there was a small stove that was humming and boiling a pot of water.
“Try this, it is mature enough.” Shi Shanshan was about to brew the tea that Yang Chen gave her the last time, but Yang Chen took out another jade bottle, it was the new tea that Yang Chen made on the road.
Because of the huge changes in recent times in the pure bottle medicine garden, the new tea had more maturity and more spiritual power. After Yang Chen specialized in quenching it with the seventh metal true essence, it would not be a general taste for Shi Shanshan. If a cup of the tea goes down, maybe it would be worth at least a week of cultivation.
After coming in, Shi Shanshan’s face always had a faint glamorous look. Only when she heard the words of Yang Chen did she recover a little peace. There was a hint of surprise and anticipation in her eyes, she took the jade bottle and carefully opened it. She used a jade spoon to pour a little of the new tea into the teapot.
He didn’t wait for Shi Shanshan to reach out and hold the kettle, Yang Chen had already reached out and grabbed it. The fire flashed in his hand and the flame rushed directly into the kettle, which instantly boiled the water of the kettle, but did not let the water evaporate.
With a slight tilt, Yang Chen poured the boiling water in the teapot and slowly raised the teapot, he then asked in a relaxed tone “What happened? Why did you suddenly encounter the heart devil?”
This tone was like the kind of chat that two friends who knew each other very well and were undefended against each other would use. In fact, after the past, these two people together with the common hobby of drinking tea, were already good friends. At least in the eyes of Shi Shanshan, there were no friends outside the sect who were closer to her than Yang Chen.
Perhaps Yang Chen’s casual tone made Shi Shanshan’s momentary relaxed, Perhaps the time for Yang Chen’s speech was too good. It’s just the time when Shi Shanshan intended to fully enjoy it. Anyway, when Yang Chen asked, Shi Shanshan didn’t even think about it and answered.
“I recently wanted to break through the middle Jiedan stage, but I have been stuck in this realm. I can’t break through and feel that I am bringing shame to my master’s sect.” Shi Shanshan said it in one breath and suddenly realized that she even unconsciously told everything to Yang Chen and her face turned red.
With this kind of mood, for Shi Shanshan, even if her master did not mention it, since she felt that she was bringing shame to her master, how could she speak about this with her master. However, in front of Yang Chen, it was so casual, even Shi Shanshan felt that her heart jumped, did she really like Yang Chen?
About Yang Chen, Shi Shanshan was somewhat annoyed at first. Of course, it was because of Li Qingchen’s misinformation. Later, she used Yang Chen and was awkward. But then, she was surprised and was shocked by Yang Chen’s shocking things again and again.
However, these were once experienced together with Yang Chen. After discovering that they had a common hobby, Shi Shanshan had a good impression of Yang Chen. The things that Yang Chen did, after Shi Shanshan heard about it, were also very appreciated. Unconsciously, the good feelings have become deeper and deeper.
Only now did Shi Shanshan suddenly discover that many things could not be said to the elders of her sect and they could not talked about with her close friends in the sect, but she could express these feelings in front of Yang Chen. It must be said that this was a very surprising change. In particular, these changes still occurred in silence and even Shi Shanshan did not realize when she had such closeness to Yang Chen.
“I understand, it’s normal!” Yang Chen opened the lid of the teapot and poured the hot water into the teapot that had been warmed up, he covered the lid and waited for a while. After that he picked up the teapot and poured the tea into the fragrant cup.
Yang Chen’s tea was cooked with the yin-yang heaven burning fire, what kind of impurities and dust could not be contaminated in the tea, so there was no need to take the step of washing the tea leaves. And this tea was just enough to completely leave the essence of the tea.
After saying this, Yang Chen had already finished a set of movements in his hand and reached out to make a gesture of action, indicating for Shi Shanshan to taste it.
Shi Shanshan listened to Yang Chen’s words and did not feel that there was anything strange. Everyone would have a heart devil at one point, so why would Yang Chen not say that? There was no need to block him, she just stuck out her delicate hands and used a skilled movement to hold the cup, then she picked it up and brought it in front of her nose slowly sniffing the unique fragrance.
“The type of peerless genius that is difficult to appear even in thousands of years, their qualifications of cultivation are rare, and it is even rare in the cultivation world.” Yang Chen did the same thing, but he did not stop talking at all, he continued “The previous cultivation, all the way if the situation is as ruined, even if there is a slight bottleneck, it will be broken through in a short period of time. These outstanding disciples are of course the pride of their sect. Once their cultivation is suddenly unable to break through, they naturally become the laughing stock in the eyes of others. The genius disciple of the Green Jade Immortal Island is no different.”
Yang Chen’s words, let Shi Shanshan suddenly stopped the action in her hand and looked at Yang Chen with some surprise. She did not expect that Yang Chen actually said what was in her current state of mind. It was extremely shocking, it directly made Shi Shanshan, the strong a Jiedan stage expert, stunned and sat in the same place, she could no longer say anything.
“However, Shi Shanshan!” Yang Chen’s voice suddenly grew bigger and more serious “Cold Plum Fairy Maiden, did you think too highly of yourself?”
Suddenly talking about Shi Shanshan’s thoughts, in the state of Shi Shanshan’s shock, Yang Chen almost immediately angered Shi Shanshan.
“What are you talking about?” Shi Shanshan’s angry voice came out directly and in front of Yang Chen there appeared a frosty flying sword. It seemed that as long as she wished, in the next moment this flying sword could pass through Yang Chen’s head.
Yang Chen did not seem to see this flying sword. The movements of his hands were not deformed, he was calm, then he picked up the teacup to taste the tea with his small mouth and faced the beautiful fairy who was so angry that she was shivering opposite of him with an innocent look.
After drinking a small cup of tea, Yang Chen added another cup to his cup and looked up at Shi Shanshan. Shi Shanshan was glamorous and unparalleled. At this moment, she was full of frost, with a charm that could only be imagined.
“If you don’t drink your tea it will become cold!” Yang Chen reminded her, he began to pick up the kettle again and began to boil the water.
Shi Shanshan’s teeth bite her lower lip tightly, but she did not say a word. The flying sword in her hand still did not move. She stared in Yang Chen’s eyes and almost burst out of fire from her eyes.
“What’s wrong? Are you not convinced?” Yang Chen’s eyelids lifted and looked at the beautiful woman who was angry in front of him.
“The Green Jade Immortal Island is in the mortal world and is listed as a first-grade sect along with several major sects. Their expectations are like clouds. They have stood for thousands of years and must not be disrespected. They must have the vast majority of credit from the cold plum fairy.” His hands kept on but his mouth did not stop and his words were not urgent but slowly said, his words directly made the opposite Shi Shanshan forget her anger and she began crying and laughing.
“That is the credit of the predecessors, what is the relationship with me?” This time, Shi Shanshan no longer stretched out but retorted.
“Oh? It doesn’t matter to you, I thought it was your credit!” Yang Chen suddenly had an enlightened appearance and it looked particularly abominable in the eyes of Shi Shanshan.
“That said, with so many predecessors, there must be some who were better than Shi Shanshan in qualifications, they must have cultivated to excellence, this has made the name of the Green Jade Immortal Island so prestigious.” Yang Chen’s words turned and then redirected back to the relationship between the Green Jade Immortal and Shi Shanshan.
“No” Not waiting for Shi Shanshan to refute, Yang Chen has taken care of it himself “ Cold plum fairy maiden Shi Shanshan, isn’t she a peerless genius that has been seen for thousands of years? How could there be so many predecessors like her?.”
Looking at Yang Chen’s self-directed and self-speaking words, Shi Shanshan’s heart seems to have no idea what Yang Chen was going to do, but her hand that was holding the sword has been slightly trembling.
“The things of the predecessors have nothing to do with fairy Shi, Now how could the prestige of the Green Jade Immortal Island be related to fairy Shi.” Yang Chen has picked up the tea cup again and gently sipped a bit. After having a taste, he said, ” If the cold plum fairy has an accident, it will definitely be a disaster for the Green Jade Immortal Island, Isn’t that the case?”
“You are talking nonsense!” Even if Shi Shanshan was proud, it was impossible for her to have such a state of mind. The Green Jade Immortal Island would never be built on the accomplishments of her alone.
“Isn’t that the case?” Yang Chen looked at Shi Shanshan’s trembling delicate body, posing an inexplicable posture and shrugging his shoulders, He suddenly asked “Then when I said that you think too highly of yourself, it seems that I was not wrong! You thought that without you the Green Jade Immortal Island would be wiped out? Wake up little girl, you are not that important!”
Yang Chen’s words seem to have hit the most proud part of Shi Shanshan’s heart and Shi Shanshan’s disguised bones have been broken, her petite body shook and the flying sword in her hand began to sway excitedly.
“In this world, no one is the same. Without you fairy Shi, maybe there would be another fairy in the Green Jade Immortal Island.” Yang Chen’s words were like poisonous snakes which directly drilled into the ear of Shi Shanshan “Little girl, you can’t represent the Green Jade Immortal Island alone, the Green Jade Immortal Island is not relying on you to raise it up. If your cultivation is excellent, it adds brilliance to the sect. If your cultivation is poor, you will not let the sect lose face. Which martial art sect has not had a few unfilial disciples, are you saying that these martial art sects could not lift their heads.”
Shi Shanshan finally put down the flying sword in her hand and her eyes began to show a trace of confusion. Maybe she did not understand the last point and it was still bothering her.
“Think about it, did the sect ask you for anything?” Yang Chen sighed slightly and continued “has the sect asked you when you have to achieve what you have done? Have you said that you can’t reach it? What will happen?”
“You have already fought a lot for the sect. At least until I appeared, the record of the Heavenly Stairs was still maintained by you and in less than two hundred years, you have hit the threshold of the middle Jiedan stage and there is no one who has done it before. For the sect, it is already the biggest dignity.” He has already scolded her, so Yang Chen certainly had to say something good, lest Shi Shanshan run away.
“In the end, you just felt that you have a good qualification cultivation so you should have such smooth sailing, you never thought that you would encounter a bottleneck, that’s why you have such a heart devil.” Yang Chen finally came to a concluding speech “Your true heart devil is not that you are afraid to bring shame to your master’s sect, but rather you just can’t overcome your own pride.”
This was the real heart of Shi Shanshan, it made Shi Shanshan have a correct understanding of her own heart demons. Shi Shanshan, who was sitting opposite him, finally completely took away the flying sword and her face also showed a serious thought.
“Well, don’t think so much!” Yang Chen directly interrupted Shi Shanshan’s thoughts. It seems that she was immersed in a world of reflection “I made a new tea specially made for you, if you don’t taste well it will be a pity.”
Shi Shanshan was awakened, and after a glimpse, she immediately showed a look. She was a very intelligent person and immediately realized the purpose of Yang Chen, he did not want her to entangle on this issue.
The famous cold plum fairy of course, could also afford to put down her characters and soon realized what her problem was, now she was no longer tangled, her slender jade hand took the cup and the fresh tea that has been slightly cooled was sent into her mouth.
Tasting the wonderful taste of the seventh metal spirit power tea, Shi Shanshan had a long-lasting look after her eyes closed. When she opened her eyes, she saw that Yang Chen was waiting for her evaluation. A frosty and mischievous look flashed in her eyes, suddenly she said “the tea is cold!”
