The Master of Metaphysics is The Movie Queen – Chapter 1

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 (宫青爻), but the time for her reincarnation came before she finished speaking, and Gong Qingyao (宫青瑶) 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."
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 some voices.
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 from here.
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 you."
As the last word fell, the young woman could no longer see the white figure.
Author has something to say:
Hello everyone, the new novel of Ah Qi (author) is open. In this book, our protagonist is Gong Qingyao. Finally, a very very serious protagonist. Welcome all the readers to jump into the pit.
Ah Qi: As the protagonist, anything you would like to say?
Gong Qingyao: ...
Ah Qi: If you say it well, I will add chicken legs, duck legs, lamb chops, steaks...
Gong Qingyao: I wish all of you who read the novel happiness every day and everything in your life goes well.
The second project is started~
TMMTMQ will for now be released 1 chapter a day at 16:00 (GMT +8) until ATBBMPL finished or I pick up another project.
This novel is quite a bit different from ATBBMPL and it also uses many new words related to metaphysics and fortune telling. It will be challenging, but I am up for it.
Thank you for your support!
