TMMTMQ – Chapter 87
If Gong Qingyao knew Wen Cheng’s thoughts, she would probably be a little helpless. She really wanted to teach everyone what she had learned, but unfortunately what she taught today was only the basic of metaphysics. She found that today’s metaphysicians’ foundation was not solid, so they really needed to continue to study in-depth.
Gong Qingyao suddenly felt melancholy. It seemed like a long way to make metaphysics at its peak again.
The restaurant provided one table for every ten people. Most people didn’t drink, so they finished eating quickly. Some continued to stay and communicated with others, and some would go home first. Even so, there were still many people pulling Gong Qingyao for a chat. But then the people who were still talking heard a scream from outside.
Then someone rushed in, "It's not good, we are trapped here."
"What do you mean?"
Liao Yehong and Tang Ruihe looked at each other, and then walked outside, Gong Qingyao also went out with them.
There were people standing at the door of the hall. At this moment, there was still a person rushing out, but when he reached the door, he bounced back, and then he fell into a coma. Tang Ruihe hurriedly walked over and checked the man. He found that his pulse were disordered, "Hurry up and call for an ambulance."
But the people trapped couldn't get out no matter how they shouted it, and the scene was soon caught in panic.
"What to do, we are controlled by the demon!"
"Do we have to wait for death here?"
"How come this happen?"
In all, these people were some of the most famous metaphysical masters, but they were so fussed just because this little thing.
Gong Qingyao said, "Quiet."
The hall was quiet in an instant. Gong Qingyao first walked to the fainted man and gave him a trace of profound energy. The people saw the person slowly woke up, and then he pointed to the entrance, with a look of horror in his eyes.
The crowd panicked again when they saw this scene, Gong Qingyao walked forward directly, and Liao Yehong called, "Master Gong."
"No problem." Gong Qingyao gently touched the void with her hand and push some energy, and then there was a force pushing her out, which was several times heavier than what she had just give.
Gong Qingyao was clear, it turned out that a formation was arranged here. The greater the force used, the greater the rebound. This was why the faster a person rushed through the barrier, the heavier the injury.
Gong Qingyao asked, "It's just a formation. Can anyone solve it?"
The formation here was very simple. It’s just that Gong Qingyao really wanted to know if the people present could solve it. But she looked around and saw everyone lowered their heads, confirming that they didn’t know how to solve it. The metaphysical master inside indeed didn’t know how to solve it. The formations they knew were all simple feng shui formations. After seeing this formation today, they felt that the formations they had deployed before were too trivial.
Tang Ruihe said, "Let me try." Just now because of the disorder, he was a little flustered for a while. But seeing Gong Qingyao being calm, his heart was not so anxious anymore. He walked forward and began to walk arounf the hall. He stopped back in place after walking a circle.
Gong Qingyao looked at him, "Is there any discovery?"
Tang Ruihe looked ashamed, "Only seven formations were found." He couldn't even see through the whole formation, let alone find out where the eyes of the formation were.
Everyone felt pleasantly surprised when they heard the first half of the sentence, but was a little frustrated when they heard the next few words. Even Tang Ruihe couldn't break through. Were they really going to die today?
Gong Qingyao nodded, and then ordered, "There is a position where the position of the foot is the same as the center of the formation."
This formation was somewhat confusing, it made everyone mistakenly think that there were eight points, but they couldn’t find the last one. However, the fact was that this formation had only six points, and the positioning of the points was disguised as if more points existed.
Everyone was stunned. They thought Gong Qingyao would not be able to break the formation. After all, everyone just heard her asking who could solve the formation. This people heard Gong Qingyao explained the essence of the formation, and this made them realize what Gong Qingyao said before. Her words were "just a formation method", which meany that she not only found the formation, but had already seen the key to breaking it.
After Gong Qingyao's little explanation, Tang Ruihe felt as if he received divine enlightenment, and he said a little excitedly, "Give me five minutes."
Tang Ruihe walked around the hall again. After a while, he looked excitedly at a place in the hall. The eyes were there on a vase. Tang Ruihe picked up the vase and smashed it down. There was finally warm air flowing around.
The people at the door stretched out their hand to test the barrier, and when they found that there were no obstacles, they immediately shouted happily, "The formation is solved."
Everyone was about to shout that Elder Tang was amazing, but then they heard Gong Qingyao saying, "Not yet!"
Immediately there was a sudden change in the surroundings, and the hall that was originally full of sun was immediately shrouded in darkness.
Now everyone was in panic again. Some people started screaming, and some people ran into the wall. These people showed pain on their faces. Gong Qingyao quickly took out some talismans and the chaos eased slightly. Tang Ruihe's face was a little pale, and Liao Yehong suddenly began to pinch his neck.
Gong Qingyao gave a trace of profound energy to Liao Yehong and he instantly woke up. He immediately shuddered, "I..."
Gong Qingyao said, "Stay steady and recite the Book of Changes silently."
Some of the masters immediately sat cross-legged, calmed their minds, and began to recite the Book of Changes. Some were slightly worse, and they were much more miserable. In short, the scene was in chaos for a moment.
Gong Qingyao sat cross-legged and began to meditate. Gong Qingyao's voice was originally of the cold type, and with her profound strength at this moment, it sounded very ethereal, the screams began to decrease, and those who was previously still in chaos stabilized their minds and began to recite the Book of Changes. After an hour, the scene finally calmed down.
The metaphysical masters had lingering fears. The incidents today were really scary, but they were also full of gratitude. If it weren't for Gong Qingyao, they would not know what to do. Previously they felt as if someone was pinching them, or they felt their whole body was so painful that they just wanted to hit the wall.
Seeing everyone came back to their senses, Gong Qingyao said, "We are now in another formation, you must concentrate." Otherwise, they could accidentally fall into the blind eye.
Unexpectedly, the opponent set up a double formation, a weak formation inside a stronger dark formation. Just now they were in the weak formation, and now they were in the dark formation. This time Gong Qingyao didn't let someone else break it, because even she herself would take some time to break this formation.
The rest of the people felt a dangerous aura, Tang Ruihe looked around, but this time he couldn't see anything. Gong Qingyao walked to the door vigilantly, watched for a while and then opened the door, only to see that the original road became an empty land.
"Ah, where is this?"
"Look at it!" Someone stretched out his hand and pointed away.
Everyone looked at where the man was pointing, and it was a tomb.
"Ah!" There was a scream.
"What's the noise? Don't forget what you need to do!" Tang Ruihe couldn't help but roared. Although Tang Ruihe didn't have profound energy on his body, he had studied metaphysics for many years, so his voice was still full of energy.
Everyone finally calmed down. They were all metaphysical masters, how could they be so anxious when they encounter things now?
A ghost floated towards the front of Gong Qingyao, and someone pointed at the ghost, "Be careful", Gong Qingyao took out a piece of talisman paper, and then she glanced at Wen Cheng. It was Wen Cheng who just gave the reminder.
It was at this moment that he turned his head, Wen Cheng pointed forward again and shouted, "Many ghosts!"
Anyone who knew Wen family knew that this kid Wen Cheng had yin yang eyes. To put it bluntly, he could see ghosts. But this kid was full of righteousness, so these ghosts didn't dare to come close normally. This was why people with yin yang eyes were generally weak people, but Wen Cheng was not.
Seeing these ghostw, Gong Qingyao took out the soul-breaking knife on her body and said, "Stay back." While speaking, Gong Qingyao used profound energy to push the people around her to a place two meters away.
Gong Qingyao quickly pulled away the knife cober, and the evil spirit gushed out in an instant. Gong Qingyao slashed down with the knife and the ghosts were now less than half. But in the blink of an eye, there were more ghosts than before coming. Gong Qingyao herself was not afraid, but there were too many innocent people here, so Gong Qingyao flew into the air while slaying these ghosts with the soul-breaking knife.
The person standing in the front was a little dumbfounded, "Fly, you can fly?"
Liao Yehong pressed his own surprise and shouted, "What are you doing in a daze, start helping!"
Everyone reacted and began to take the talisman papers that they brought. There were a lot of ghosts here, and they became stronger and stronger. So gradually, many people actually could see the dark shadows clearly. The masters began to use their own abilities, hoping that they could help, but they together only managed to clean up the ghosts that slipped through the net.
Gong Qingyao usually study the formation first before breaking it, and she found that this formation was a bit familiar. However, the situation was urgent now, so Gong Qingyao couldn't afford the distraction. She must quickly break the formation. These ghosts would come endlessly, so if she didn’t break the formation, sooner or later, everyone would be either exhausted or killed by the ghosts.
Thinking of this, Gong Qingyao speeded up even more.
Everyone only heard "Broken!" And then the darkness in front of them turned into thick fog. Everyone looked nervous, but then they saw the thick fog slowly disappeared, and the surroundings returned to normal.
"Is the Elder okay?" Tang Ruihe asked first, he found Gong Qingyao standing not far in front, motionless.
Gong Qingyao turned her back and said, "Let everyone leave first."
Tang Ruihe nodded, and then and Liao Yehong immediately organized everyone to leave, including the staff still in the office building.
Tang Ruihe saw Gong Qingyao walked around on the first floor and asked, "What's the problem?"
"Not sure." Gong Qingyao said, "I need to look around this building."
"I will accompany you." Tang Ruihe said.
"No need." Gong Qingyao finished speaking and leave.
Tang Ruihe saw that Gong Qingyao, who was still on the first floor, suddenly appeared on the second floor, and then he couldn't see her anymore.
Tang Ruihe swallowed. Even if he knew Gong Qingyao was very powerful, Gong Qingyao still broke through his cognition again and again today.
After Liao Yehong arranged for everyone to leave, he saw his master in a daze. He walked over and sighed, "I don't know if the Elder is willing to take disciples."
Tang Ruihe glanced at Liao Yehong thoughtfully.
Liao Yehong said immediately, "Master, I didn't mean that, but I just think that the elder's ability should be passed down." Although Gong Qingyao was still young, there should be someone who could succeed her.
Tang Ruihe looked upstairs, silently thinking, if Gong Qingyao could accept him as an apprentice, it would be great.
Half an hour later, Gong Qingyao returned to the first floor. Tang Ruihe and Liao Yehong hurriedly greeted her, "Is there a problem?"
"No." Gong Qingyao left the ancient city building after speaking. There was no problem, but because of this, it seemed even stranger. Gong Qingyao walked to the parking lot, drove away, and suddenly at a certain intersection, she stepped on the brakes fiercely.
Why did she forget one thing!
