As An Immortal, I Only Learn Forbidden Skills - Chapter 753
753 The Past Is Like Smoke
Liang Sisi was very curious about what they were doing and kept looking at them.
“Then, you’ll have to dress up as a man. Otherwise, you won’t be able to get close to Madam Zhenguo.”
Sikong Wuyuan sized up Liang Sisi’s body and nodded.
Liang Sisi was stunned for a moment before she asked curiously, “Lord Sikong, what you said shouldn’t be right. If I were a woman, it would be easier for me to get close to Madam Zhenguo. After all, there’s a saying that women definitely understand women better.”
Sikong Wuyuan said something unexpected. “No, no, no. Madam Zhenguo hates women. She hates women your age even more.”
These words made Liang Sisi and Jiang Ming turn to him at the same time.
The two of them stared at Sikong Wuyuan and asked simultaneously, “She’s misogynistic? How can this be?”
“You must have never thought that this is her secret. Even her personal maid does not know,” Sikong Wuyuan said proudly, his eyes filled with admiration.
These words attracted Jiang Ming and Liang Sisi’s attention again. They were confused. “How do you know? Aren’t you not related to Madam Zhenguo?”
Seeing that he seemed to have been exposed, Sikong Wuyuan felt a little embarrassed. He waved his hand and said, “Forget it. I’ll tell you guys. Actually, I had an affair with Madam Zhenguo. It was only because Madam Zhenguo became like this that I broke up with her!”
Liang Sisi opened her mouth wide.
Jiang Ming was still calm.
He had already guessed the relationship between Sikong Wuyuan and Madam Zhenguo, so he could understand Sikong Wuyuan’s feelings.
He guessed that Sikong Wuyuan had most likely been dumped by Madam Zhenguo.
Upon hearing this, Liang Sisi imagined something very melodramatic. She looked at Sikong Wuyuan and asked curiously, “Sikong Wuyuan, did you and Madam Zhenguo separate peacefully? Or is there a terrible story behind it?”
Hearing Liang Sisi’s words, Sikong Wuyuan suddenly felt guilty. He stuttered, “You’re thinking too much. We definitely separated peacefully. What else could we do? Even if there was something else, it was all in the past. There was no affair or anything.”
Liang Sisi did not say anything else. She was still curious, but she could only bury her curiosity in her heart.
She knew when to stop. If he were unwilling to tell her, she would not delve into it.
Seeing that Liang Sisi did not continue asking, Sikong Wuyuan heaved a sigh of relief. He recalled the past and wanted to slap himself.
It was humiliating back then. He had actually desperately hoped that Madam Zhenguo could stay.
In the end, he had a massive realization and went elsewhere.
When he came to this place again, the people here had forgotten the relationship between him and Madam Zhenguo.
Otherwise, he would not have been able to open an inn here. He would have had to crawl into a hole if the people of this place remembered what had happened.
“By the way, when are we leaving?”
Jiang Ming thought about how he still had to swindle Madam Zhenguo, so he looked at Sikong Wuyuan.
Sikong Wuyuan fell silent and turned to Liang Sisi. “Are you coming? If you are, I’ll dress you up.”
“Of course, I’m coming! I definitely have to join in the fun. You can’t abandon me.”
Liang Sisi nodded her head frantically, her eyes filled with anticipation.
She had heard rumors about Madam Zhenguo in Fengyu. She had heard that Madam Zhenguo was a rare beauty. Aside from her arrogant and domineering personality, she was actually kind and had helped many people.
If it was not for the fact that they wanted to get Liang Shengsheng’s bracelet, they would not have bothered to cheat Madam Zhenguo of her gold bracelet.
They could just return the gold bracelet after they used it.
Seeing Liang Sisi’s enthusiasm, Sikong Wuyuan was in a daze.
He vaguely remembered that once, on a sunny morning, Madam Zhenguo was also like this and asked him to help him make some candy.
Sikong Wuyuan’s eyes dimmed when he thought of the candy they had worked so hard to make.
Now that everything was gone, he was nothing.
Perhaps Madam Zhenguo had forgotten about him.
Thinking of this, he laughed bitterly.
Seeing Sikong Wuyuan’s strange expression, Liang Sisi and Jiang Ming were both puzzled. They called out to Sikong Wuyuan, “Lord Sikong? Lord Sikong?”
Hearing their voices, Sikong Wuyuan came back to his senses.
Realizing that he was distracted, he could not help but cough. Then, he thought to himself and said, “I’m fine. I was just thinking about how to dress you up.”
This excuse was very clumsy, but Liang Sisi and Jiang Ming did not say anything.
To them, everyone had their own secrets, and they did not need to get to the bottom of it.
Sikong Wuyuan waved his hand, and Liang Sisi immediately put on her male attire.
She tried her hair up as well to look more like a man.
Liang Sisi looked at the clothes she was wearing and felt that it was very novel. She could not help but ask, “Lord Sikong, how did you do it? I feel that this spell is very difficult to learn, and I’ve never heard of this spell before.”
Sikong Wuyuan smiled. “It was originally taught to me by the same person we’re going to see. However, she has become a stranger to me now, so it’s nothing much.”
Liang Sisi pursed her lips and looked at Sikong Wuyuan. “That person can’t be Madam Zhenguo, right? Lord Sikong, please don’t think too much about it. Those things are all in the past.”
She sympathized with Sikong Wuyuan’s tragic love story, but she could not empathize.
She had never experienced it before, so she could only comfort Sikong Wuyuan verbally.
Sikong Wuyuan understood what Liang Sisi meant, so he did not say much. He continued, “Madam Zhenguo is going to start giving out porridge tomorrow. Let’s go tomorrow. Why don’t we go out and practice? We don’t want to expose ourselves.”
“I think we should read palms.”
Jiang Ming thought for a moment, and then his eyes lit up.
“But you know medicine. You can infer some things from palmistry, but we can’t. So, should we think about something else?”
Sikong Wuyuan scratched his head, not knowing what to think.
This kind of thing was really troublesome for him. He could change his clothes, but he could not read fortunes out of thin air!
Jiang Ming knew what Sikong Wuyuan was worried about, but he said mysteriously, “That’s easy. Wait for me.”
