Chapter 181: Being Followed 2
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
She pretended to run back and forth as if nothing had happened. One moment, she ran forward, and the next, she bounced back to walk with Madam Qian and the others.
Everyone thought she was just being naughty.
Madam Zhao had instructed her to be careful and not fall.
Along the way, Su Xiaolu could still feel that she was being followed, but she did not see any suspicious figures.
She was a little puzzled. Someone was obviously following her, but where were they?
She walked quietly. Suddenly she heard a few birds chirping.
She looked toward the jungle. A few birds flew away. She had an epiphany.
Eyes all bright, she began to pay attention to the jungle trees. With that attention, she detailed the pattern.
Along the way, birds startled and flew away. Sometimes a few, sometimes one. It seemed normal, but there was something abnormal behind it.
Su Xiaolu scratched her head. The old man had said that the master who would teach her swordsmanship was very powerful, but he didn’t say his name.
He’s not showing his face. Maybe he’s testing me??She thought.
Su Xiaolu smiled cleverly. When they were almost home, Su Xiaolu suddenly made a sound with her hands and turned to shout at the forest not far away, “Master, I found you. Come out.”
Madam Zhao and the others were shocked.
Everyone looked at her in shock.
“What are you talking about, Xiaolu?”
Madam Zhao looked puzzled.
“Mother, someone was following us, but there’s no malice along the way. Xiaolu called him master. It’s okay.”
Su Chong said, his expression clearly relaxed.
When he’d first felt it, he’d been worried about the possibility of a bad guy. He’d been afraid to tell his family for fear that everyone would panic.
However, there had been no movement along the way. Su Chong felt that there might be no malice. He was relieved to see his home. Now that he heard Su Xiaolu shout, he immediately understood everything.
Madam Zhao was shocked when she heard Su Chong’s words.
Madam Qian was also afraid. They did not notice that someone was following them.
Su Hua and Zhou Heng frowned.
At that moment, a black shadow swept towards them.
Su Xiaolu was stunned. This… this was Qinggong…
He flew through the air like that from so far away. He was dressed in black and flew in front of her.
The person had cold facial features and looked to be about forty years old. He was dressed thinly and only held a sword in his hand. When Su Xiaolu looked at him, he was also looking at Su Xiaolu. He said expressionlessly, “Girl, when did you discover me?”
He hid very well. How did Su Xiaolu discover him?
He didn’t want to appear in front of Su Xiaolu so quickly. He wanted to observe her more, but the little girl was too agile and had already sensed him. Her family was just as the old man had said. They were ordinary farmers and didn’t have much courage.
They would be uneasy if he didn’t show himself.
He didn’t come here to scare people, so he showed his face.
Su Xiaolu’s eyes were bright and beautiful. She smiled and said, “The person who followed me in town is also Master, right? I noticed it long ago, but I’m not sure yet. But just now, I guessed that it should be Master. Now, I’m sure that it’s really Master.”
She guessed that it might be, but she also thought that perhaps it was sent by Zhou Heng’s mother.
Since the old man could bring Zhou Heng along to treat his leg, he was probably not an ordinary person.
Since Zhou Heng could not return, it was only right to send someone to protect him.
So, whether it was Zhou Heng’s people or her master, she could only know when they showed up. Her shout was to confirm who it was.
Now, it was confirmed that her master was here.
The little girl looked up into his eyes, her face smug.
“You are, as your master says, bright and clever.”
Looking at Su Xiaolu, he knew that the old man was not lying to him or exaggerating. He would indeed be very satisfied with such a disciple.
Therefore, he said seriously, “Girl, my name is Gui You. From now on, I’ll teach you martial arts. You need to acknowledge me as your master and learn my sword technique.”
Gui You had decided to accept Su Xiaolu.
Madam Zhao and the others were stunned. They had been stunned since they saw Gui You fly over. Only now did they come back to their senses.
Madam Zhao looked at Su Xiaolu with indescribable emotions.
Su Xiaolu’s face was filled with joy and excitement. She asked impatiently, “Master, can I fly in the future?”
In ancient times, people could really fly. They really had Qinggong.
Su Xiaolu kept wondering about how powerful the powerful swordsman Old Wu mentioned was. Now, she knew how powerful he was.
He was able to walk on the wind.
If she worked hard to learn, could she also fly in the future??
Gui You looked at Su Xiaolu and nodded under her expectant gaze. “Yes.”
As long as she was not afraid of hardship and focused on practicing, she would definitely be able to.
Su Xiaolu almost jumped with joy when she received an affirmative answer.
Gui You looked at the overly lively little girl and shifted her gaze to Madam Zhao and Madam Qian.
He said lightly, “I’m sorry to disturb you, I’ll leave when the girl has learned.”
Madam Zhao hurriedly waved her hand and said, “It’s fine, it’s fine.”
Gui You and the rest went back together.
Gui You had moved into Old Wu’s house next door. He usually ate with Su Sanlang’s family.
In terms of acknowledging a master, Gui You was exactly the same as Old Wu.
At dinner tonight, Su Xiaolu could just pour a cup of tea for the ceremony.
Su Sanlang looked at Gui You’s thin clothes and wondered how to begin.
Guiyou seemed to know what he was thinking and said calmly, “I’m not cold.”
Su Sanlang smiled warmly. “Good, good.”
Su Chong and Su Hua were both secretly sizing up Gui You.
Zhou Heng was the same. Gui You was too skilled. To be able to have a relationship with the divine doctor, he was probably famous in the martial world.
Many people would be envious of Su Xiaolu’s luck.
The arrival of Gui You had no impact on their lives.
Other than Su Xiaolu, no one else’s life had changed.
The next day, Su Xiaolu began to practice martial arts with Gui You.
Guiyou gave Su Xiaolu a set of mental cultivation techniques to memorize. Guiyou went out.
She started knocking around the yard after returning.
Su Xiaolu memorized the mental cultivation techniques and followed the instructions, but she did not feel anything. Her meridians were not blocked, so she naturally did not stop practicing. When she heard the knocking outside, she could not help but go out to take a look.
Gui You has returned from cutting down trees of various sizes and was pinning them all in the yard.
Su Xiaolu was curious. “Master Gui You, what are you doing?”
They were of different sizes, lengths, and were arranged in rows. It was unrealistic to squat on them.
She didn’t know what this was about, so she asked.
Gui You said lightly, “For you to practice handstands and standing on one leg. Big ones for feed, small ones for hands.”
Su Xiaolu was confused when she heard that.
How to do handstands?
She watched Gui You set up the stakes and gave Su Xiaolu a demonstration as if he knew Su Xiaolu’s doubts.
He stood on one leg, unmoving. Then, he used one finger to balance himself on the stake.
