Peach Blossom Debt - Chapter 74
Bihua Lingjun said his goodbye and went out. The sack’s opening above my head revealed light. I looked up and saw Heng Wen.
Looking up like this, Heng Wen’s face was bigger than usual, and I could also see him in more detail than usual. Heng Wen frowned. “You don’t seem to be Xuan Li.” L3SzOu
I broke out in cold sweat. Heng Wen’s eyes were sharp – he could tell that I wasn’t Xuan Li just like that. I tilted my head shamelessly and flicked my tail.
Heng Wen couldn’t help but smile. “You are not Xuan Li, even though you really do look like him. Could it be that the celestial soldiers got it wrong? So, who are you?”
His hand touched the top of my head, I turned my head and licked his hand.
There were no divine forces left in me, and Heng Wen definitely could not figure out who I was. I licked his hand again, and Heng Wen reached behind my two front paws and picked me up. “Well, since you’re a fox that has been caught in the Heavenly Court, and have come to my residence; It can be considered as fate. I will entertain you for one day, and tomorrow I will bring you along to the Jade Emperor and persuade him to let you go back to the mortal world.”
I continued to nod shamelessly and flicked my tail. Pf72sW
I lay on the chair beside Heng Wen and accompanied him to approve official documents for some time. And then I rested on his knees for a while. Heng Wen patted me on the back and said, “Unfortunately, there is nothing you’ll like to eat in the house. I will get some exquisite nectar, would you like to drink it?”
We’re sorry for MTLers or people who like using reading mode, but our translations keep getting stolen by aggregators so we’re going to bring back the copy protection. If you need to MTL please retype the gibberish parts.
I put a dish of exquisite nectar in front of my paws, I lowered my head and drank it, then shamelessly flicked my tail. Heng Wen smiled happily. When I went to bed, Heng Wen put a cushion on the chair beside his bed. I squatted on the mat to watch him go to bed and lay down, then I jumped onto the bed too, by his side.

Heng Wen seemed to be asleep. I got up, shook my fur, and squatted on the pillow to look at him.
Heng Wen, Heng Wen. You don’t know that thousands of years ago, I saw you when I first went to the Heavenly Court. You just came out of the Weiyuan Palace. Although I only saw your back from a distance, I had a desire to cling to you since then. But at that time you were set up on high, and I could only look from afar. Then I saw you again by the lotus pond and you came to my residence. For thousands of years from then, you and I became friends, but I always felt that although I was close to your side, you were still very far away, I still couldn’t touch you. zR3BUo
In the mortal world, what Yao Xiang said may be very true. In fact, in those years, I couldn’t comprehend what love was until I got to the Heavenly Court. I knew of this word, yet I was unable to use it.
The time in the mortal world, it was enough. I think I’ve spent thousands of years very well. Even if I am just a bridge to connect the road, it’s worthwhile.
I wholeheartedly wish to do my duty as an immortal and stay in the Heavenly Court. The days of immortals have no end for a long time. Even if I can’t touch, as long as I can continue being by your side, I will be content.
Now I’m looking at you like this. I don’t owe anyone anything, neither do you. There’s no fate for me to be by your side, but at this moment I can look at you like this and touch you, it’s already a deep enough fate for me. eLu am
I lowered my head and licked Heng Wen’s lips, glanced at him again, and jumped to the ground. And I headed out of the room.
The Heavenly Court was quiet, and I don’t know where the fox went after he disguised himself as this immortal lord. Let him be, he had been told to return to Bihua Lingjun Mansion tomorrow anyway. I returned to my original form and encountered a few celestial soldiers on the road, but perhaps the Jade Emperor had told them that I could walk around in the Heavenly Court freely as the celestial soldiers did not do anything when they saw me.

Before I arrived at the Mansion of Taibai Xingjun, I had not been able to climb over the wall, so I behaved myself and let the immortal envoy report.
Jinxing was already asleep. He came out with a messy beard and drowsy look, and said, “Song Yao Yuanjun, what is the matter for you to look for me?” A5FetV
I apologetically smiled and said, “I want to secretly get out of the Heavenly Court to escape and lay low. I beg you to find a way to get me out of the Heavenly Court.”
Jinxing’s beard suddenly puffed up. “You wish to escape to the mortal world? What about Tian Shu Xingjun and Heng Wen Qingjun? You’ve implicated these two immortal lords and want to slip away by yourself?”
I said, “I have no choice. As you can see, if I’m in the Heavenly Court, the Jade Emperor must not let private affairs interfere with public duty and hold public trials in front of all the immortals in the Lingxiao Hall. Even if I take all the charges, Tian Shu Xingjun and Heng Wen Qingjun would certainly take it with me and they would be punished as well. It would be better for me to escape to the mortal world, I can avoid the limelight and all the charges must be on me. Tian Shu and Heng Wen can do nothing.”
Jinxing looked at me and said, “You have a nice plan.” He stroked his beard with his hand, “Well, let’s see if I can take you out of the Heavenly Court today.” 0OKtWS
I was overjoyed. “Thank you, Xingjun.”
Taibai Xingjun said, “No need to be polite, but don’t blame this lord if you hide badly in the mortal world and are taken up again.”
I cupped my hand and said, “That’s natural.”
Taibai Xingjun took a golden veil and hid me in his sleeves and went out of the mansion. From the gap within his cuffs, I saw faintly that we reached the Southern Heavenly Gate, and the celestial soldiers who guard the door said, “Where goes, Xingjun?” WKXRtv
Taibai Jinxing said, “Complying with the Jade Emperor’s decree, I had to go to the land to see the current situation of the world.”
After handing in the gate amulet, the celestial soldiers let us pass. Taibai JinXing brought me down to the world and released me from the golden veil. I looked around, it was a hilltop.
Taibai Jinxing said, “You abscond from the mortal world, wherever you hide in the world, this lord does not know.”
I said, “Of course, of course.” n3xdu0
Taibai Xingjun released the cloud and rode back to the Heavenly Court.
I struggled from the hilltop to the middle of the hillside. I had used up all my divine forces. Just to prevent Taibai Xingjun from seeing my state, I wasted more of the divine magic. Now it’s almost impossible to hold out any longer.
I found a cave in the bushes on the hillside and went in.
The inside of the cave was quite clean, and the soil on the ground was soft and smooth. The entrance of the cave faced east, and I could see the morning mist and a touch of sunlight when I lied down like this. WQpzOi
After seeing Tian Shu, the immortals of the Heavenly Court should be able to understand bits and pieces. Then when they see the fox, they can understand completely. This would be the best result. I was originally a mortal, and I should return to the mortal world after I got annihilated. Heng Wen, there’s no need to see him. He would be less heartbroken and he would be able to recover sooner.
At this moment, I was about to be annihilated, I admit that I felt heartbroken. I even wish that if I could leave a wisp of a soul behind, even as a grasshopper, it would have been nice. But being illuminated by the morning sun, I suddenly figured it out.
Whether it was an eternal lone phoenix, whether it’s a stick to beat paired birds or a bridge across the river, it’s just from one perspective. If you think about it the other way around, Heng Wen and I have been in heaven for so many years, which no mortal can obtain. I have it all day and night. I will be annihilated at this time, I am nothing in the world, and the world is nothing to me. Heng Wen and I stayed together until I’m gone, and it has been generation after generation, everlasting and unchanging.
All of a sudden, I felt relieved. The immortal qi all over my body had been exhausted. I felt empty, and I began to be unable to see things clearly. So this is what dying feels like? In fact, it was not a big deal. jhsgnJ
In a daze, I seemed to see Heng Wen standing beside me. Some say that when a mortal dies, they hallucinate, who would have thought that one would also hallucinate when one disappears into nothingness.
To be able to take another glimpse like this, even if it’s an illusion, it’s not bad.
