TMMTMQ – Chapter 1
A few bubbles appeared on the
calm lake, followed by ripples, and then the movement grew bigger and bigger,
as if something was about to come out of the lake. Looking closer, it was
actually a woman dressed in white.
Gong Qingyao (宫青爻
means the solid and broken
lines of the eight trigrams) exhausted her last bit of strength to climb onto
the shore, and then began to meditate with her legs crossed.
This body was too weak.
Yes, this body was not hers. Back
then, when she fought with her enemy on the top of the mountain, she managed to
defeat the enemy, but she was also hit and dropped to the bottom of the sea.
The jade bracelet and magical objects she was wearing were all torn apart at
that moment, and her meridian was completely broken. Her wisp of soul was
sealed in the jade bracelet fragment and sank to the bottom of the sea.
After a long time, Gong Qingyao
woke up, but ahe couldn't break the seal and remained in the fragment. Over the
years, Gong Qingyao felt that her soul was about to dissipate. If she couldn't break
the seal and couldn't find a suitable body, she would lose her soul, and disappeared
forever from the Three Realms.
Unexpectedly, someone came
across this jade bracelet fragment today and broke Gong Qingyao from the seal.
The little girl who came across the fragments of the jade bracelet was also
called Gong Qingyao (宫青瑶
means precious), and the last word had the same
pronunciation. The little girl was playing in the mountains, accidentally fell
into the lake, and drowned, unintentionally lifting Gong Qingyao's seal.
When the little girl learned
that her body could be used by the soul in the jade bracelet, she generously
agreed. Before the little girl went to reincarnation, Gong Qingyao asked her
what she wanted.
The little girl said that she
hadn't won the title of movie queen in her life. Gong Qingyao promised her that
she would help her win this award.
The happy little girl briefly
explained the situation of herself and the entertainment circle to Gong Qingyao
but the time for her reincarnation came before she finished speaking, and Gong
had to go to reincarnation.
After climbing up to the shore,
Gong Qingyao (宫青爻
) regained some strength, and read the reincarnation
scriptures to the original soul of her current body, wishing her to be reborn
in a good family in the next life. But at the same time, Gong Qingyao also had
some headaches. Originally, she didn't know what a movie queen was, but after
the original soul gave some explanations, she knew that a movie queen was probably
similar to an actor.
It's just that she was a
metaphysical master, and it was really difficult to go into acting. Gong
Qingyao intended to take one step at a time. As for the movie queen title, she
must get it.
Thousands of years have passed
since her time period, and the sea she was sealed in has also become a lake.
What made Gong Qingyao sad was that the spiritual energy that was originally
abundant between the heaven and the earth has become thinner. It was really not
a good thing for metaphysical people.
Gong Qingyao sighed and was
about to meditate, but she heard a sound of crying. She originally planned to
ignore it, but the sound of crying got closer and closer to her. Gong Qingyao
had to look up at the people coming.
One man and one woman, the man
was in his early twenties, while women were at least half a decade old. Judging
from their face, the two have no relationship with each other.
Gong Qingyao's eyes stopped the
sobbing of the middle aged woman that was now screaming. She probably didn't
expect to see other people here. Then the woman asked, "Do you saw a child
passing by?" The woman asked and gestured with her hands. "It's about
this high, wearing blue clothes and black pants."
"No." Gong Qingyao only
saw the original owner today.
The woman cried again when she
heard this, "My poor Yi'er, where are you?"
Gong Qingyao frowned slightly.
She looked at the woman's face and the children's palace was abundant, which
really meant that she had children and they were well now. But the youngest of her
children was in the late teens, so didn’t match with the child she was looking
for now, Gong Qingyao raised her head and asked, "What is your
relationship with that child?"
Palaces on a person face used in face reading.
The woman paused, although she
didn't understand why the other party asked so, she replied. "I'm his
Babysitter? Gong Qingyao was a little
puzzled, obviously didn't understand what the word meant.
The man on the side said,
"Xiao Yi is my younger brother. Did you hear any unusual voices just
now?" This woman had obviously been here for a while, and maybe she heard
Gong Qingyao shook her head.
The man's eyes were dull, and he
was about to speak again, but he heard Gong Qingyao say, "You have no younger
brother, only one elder brother."
The man heard it, but his eyes
showed a hint of sarcasm.
The woman on the side was surprised,
"You, are you a master? So accurate"
Gong Qingyao nodded slightly,
and the two people in front of her did not know what to say, and the atmosphere
fell awkward for a while.
The man held up his hands and
said, "Can the master help me calculate, where this child is now?"
She was a master, but Gong
Qingyao didn't hear the man's respectful language, thinking that the child was
probably lost and he was in panic, she let it be and said, "Eight
characters*." (TN: birth date characters used in fortune-telling)
The woman was about to say, but
the man first said a series of numbers.
Gong Qingyao stretched out her
left hand. Even if now was a different time than where she lived previously,
she can quickly calculate the year. Soon she looked up at the man and said,
"The character is wrong."
The man was stunned, but the
woman on the side said, "You are truly a master!" Then she reported a
series of correct numbers.
If it were in the past, Gong
Qingyao would probably not pay attention to these two people. But now that they
were really anxious, so she stretched out her hand and pinched her fingers. The
current situation of the child was not optimistic, so she hurriedly said,
"Hurry to the southeast."
"Thank you!" The woman
said immediately, and then looked at the man on her side.
Although he didn’t know how Gong
Qingyao calculated it, it’s better to have a specific direction than just wandering
around. Combined with Gong Qingyao’s tone just now, the man nodded slightly,
"Thank you." He turned around after he said it. After he ran out, the
middle-aged woman also left.
Gong Qingyao adjusted her
sitting posture and continued to meditate. The spiritual energy here was thin,
but Gong Qingyao was surprised to find that this body ability to refine spiritual
energy was very fast, and between exhaling and inhaling, it absorbed the
surrounding spiritual energies cleanly.
After dusk, Gong Qingyao opened
her eyes again. Even though she was not an emotional, she still showed a hint
of surprise in her eyes. She knew how to practice Qi*, but not at such a speed.
Even if it were placed in the past, on the location with the most ample spiritual
energy, it was impossible even for an extremely talented person to complete a
breakthrough within half a day. (TN: *Qi = vital force, here
That's right, by meditating for
most of the day, Gong Qingyao broke through a layer of Qi training, refining a
lot of the body's muscles and bones, and expelling all turbid Qi from the
original owner. She stood up and walked to the lake, staring at herself using
the lake’s reflection, Gong Qingyao took a deep breath, and finally knew why
the middle-aged woman screamed.
The original owner was probably wearing
a heavy makeup today. After falling into the lake and soaking for a while, the
makeup was completely spent, the eye shadow smeared on the entire palm-sized
face, and her lips were surrounded by big red lipstick, which looked a bit
scary. It's no wonder that after Gong Qingyao said she was a master just now,
the two people previously didn't believe it.
Gong Qingyao squatted down and washed
off her makeup with the lake water little by little. The pool of lake water in
front of her immediately turned into black, and it took a while to disperse.
Gong Qingyao finally saw her appearance, she showed a trace of doubt in her
eyes. Her original face was a little different from the little girl's, but this
was not the time to think about this question.
Because Gong Qingyao’s stomach
growled, she missed the time when it was okay even if she didn't eat for seven
days. Gong Qingyao stood up, pulled up a piece of cloth on her body, bit her
finger, and drew on the cloth. Cinnabar was the best choice for drawing
symbols. However, Gong Qingyao had no cinnabar on her at the moment, so she
could only replace it with her own blood. (TN: Cinnabar here
Although this body only broke
through the first level of Qi training, the essence was strong, so the effect
of the drawn talisman was not bad.
"Successful." Gong Qingyao
shouted, the blood on the cloth immediately dried up and merged with the cloth
to emit a faint yellow light. After this life-saving talisman was done, it
consumed most of Gong Qingyao's physical strength. She was even hungrier now,
so Gong Qingyao collected the talisman, and walked towards the forest.
The lake was surrounded by
woods. She heard from the original owner, this was a mountain. As she left,
Gong Qingyao smelled a scent and walked towards a place. At a distance of about
ten meters, Gong Qingyao saw a young and beautiful woman, frowning as if
thinking about a problem, holding a piece of food in her hand. That scent came
The young woman was shocked when
she saw Gong Qingyao that suddenly appeared. Gong Qingyao glanced at the food
in the woman's hand and felt that her stomach became more and more hungry.
After a while, the woman issued
a kind question, "Are you a friend of Brother Shan?"
Gong Qingyao didn't know who
Brother Shan was, she showed a trace of doubt, but then glanced at the food in
the hands of the opposite woman.
The woman understood, and
immediately passed the food in her hand to Gong Qingyao.
Gong Qingyao looked at the
woman, only this time, she saw some scenes, the woman in front of her was asked
to a place, and then a man hugged the woman and together they fell down the
stairs. Gong Qingyao looked at these tall buildings and was very surprised. She
didn't expect the world to become so strange after thousands of years.
Seeing that Gong Qingyao did not
answer, the woman on the other side explained, "I haven't eaten it."
Gong Qingyao was still in shock,
so she didn't pay attention to what the woman on the other side said, except
that she had never seen the tall building in the vision. The shocking thing was
that she could see all this because she has opened the heavenly eyes.
Unexpectedly, this body only broke through the first level of Qi training, but
it could open the heavenly eyes. First, it refined the spiritual energy
quickly, and second, this heavenly eyes. Many people couldn’t open their
heavenly eyes even after training their entire lives. It was not easy.
Seeing that Gong Qingyao hadn't picked
the food, the woman on the other side thought about it and said, "I'm not
hungry, this lamb still has a lot." There was a barbecue at the top of the
mountain today, but she walked here because she was worried.
Gong Qingyao came back to her
senses, took the mutton, and began to eat. The woman in front of her sat
quietly beside her without saying a word.
This lamb tasted very good, the
meat was very tender, Gong Qingyao ate it clean in one bite, then raised her
head and said, "Thank you."
"You're welcome." The
woman asked, "Do you want anything else? I'll get it."
After a portion of mutton, Gong
Qingyao was already full, so she said directly, "You are reborn."
While eating mutton, Gong Qingyao had already seen the woman's face, if she took
over the little girl body, then the woman in front of her was reborn.
The woman was taken aback for a
moment, and then there was a hint of vigilance in her eyes, but Gong Qingyao
didn't care, and then said, "You were wealthy, but your previous life was different."
Gong Qingyao drew another
talisman and handed it to the woman, "Take it with you to keep you
safe." What Gong Qingyao didn't say was that this talisman could protect the
woman from falling from a tall building.
The woman took the talisman and
put it on her body, "Thank you."
"Thank you for the
mutton." Gong Qingyao got up and left.
The woman behind her seemed to
have a lot of words, but at last she said, "May I ask your name?"
"Gong Qingyao." Gong
Qingyao said without looking back, "Go southwest, someone is looking for
As the last word fell, the young
woman could no longer see the white figure.
