Chapter 1618: Become a Cultivator for Him
Although it was very late, Leng Shaoting stayed up for Gu Nings call.
They had only been apart for half a day, but he was already missing her.
He badly wanted to hear her voice and talk with her.
However, Leng Shaoting knew that Gu Ning was driving, so he didnt talk with her for long.
Gu Ning went to bed after she got home.
It was rainy the next day, so she didnt go running in the morning.
She called Qiao Ya and told her not to prepare breakfast because they would be eating outside.
Qiao Ya went to work together with Gu Ning.
Gu Ning read a book again this morning, because she had nothing important to deal with.
At noon, Gu Ning called Shangguan Yang and asked him whether he was comfortable living in the siheyuan.
Leng Shaoting gave Stone a bank card to provide Shangguan Yang with whatever he wanted, but Gu Ning thought that she still needed to care about him.
Stone and Shangguan Yang werent very familiar with each other yet, so Gu Ning was worried that Shangguan Yang might hesitate to ask for what he wanted.
Because Leng Shaoting was absent, Gu Ning should take good care of Shangguan Yang.
Luckily, Shangguan Yang had great adaptability, and he enjoyed his life now.
Gu Ning then told Shangguan Yang that she would go to visit him that afternoon, but she felt a little sad after having the call with him.
She planned to ask Shangguan Yang the question she always wanted to ask him, and she was afraid that she might hear a negative answer.
When it was 5 pm, Gu Ning left her company.
She drove to the siheyuan by herself, and it was about 6 pm when she arrived.
Lao Zhang had already prepared dinner for them and Shangguan Yang was waiting for her.
Shangguan Yang didnt feel bored being alone, but he was still very happy to see Gu Ning.
Gu Ning was soon full, but Shangguan Yang was still pouring food into his mouth like he had been hungry for years.
Normally, Shangguan Yang ate as much as five or six adults.
Lao Zhang and Stone dined in the siheyuan as well, but they quickly finished their dinner in the kitchen.
Shangguan Yang was in a higher position than them after all, so they never dined together at the same table.
Leng Shaoting gave them great treatment, and they could eat whatever they wanted, they only needed to serve Shangguan Yang to the best of their ability.
After dinner, Shangguan Yang told Gu Ning to show him the two new sets of kung fu skills he taught her yesterday.
He wanted to see whether Gu Ning was able to remember them clearly after a day.
To his surprise, Gu Ning already bore them in her mind.
She indeed had a photographic memory!
Actually, Gu Ning only remembered the moves, she still needed more time and practice to master the skills.
In the following hour, Shangguan Yang taught Gu Ning how to control her strength and speed.
Gu Ning was very smart and a quick learner.
“Very good!” Shangguan Yang was satisfied with her performance.
After practicing for a while, they stopped to have a rest.
“Grandpa Shangguan, can I ask you about something” said Gu Ning all of a sudden.
“Sure.” Shangguan Yang smiled.
“Can a mortal become a cultivator” asked Gu Ning with a serious expression.
Hearing that, Shangguan Yang fixed his eyes at her.
“Why do you ask that question Do you want to be a cultivator” In fact, Shangguan Yang already had the answer in his heart, but he still wanted to hear it from Gu Nings mouth.
“Yes, I want to become a cultivator for Shaoting.
I dont want to die before him and leave him alone in this world,” said Gu Ning.
“You want to become a cultivator for him” asked Shangguan Yang.
“Yes.” Gu Ning nodded with determination.
Shangguan Yang remained silent for a while, then said, “Well, he asked me the same question.”
“What Shaoting asked you the same question” Gu Ning was surprised.
The next second, she realized that the answer must be negative, or Leng Shaoting would have talked with her about it.
“Right,” Shangguan Yang said.
“A mortal can become a cultivator, but its very dangerous, and most mortals will die in the process.
All the people in the cultivation world were born with the talent for becoming a good cultivator.
Mortals, however, dont have the talent.”
Gu Ning figured out that Leng Shaoting didnt want her to risk her life for him.
She could also die during the process.
Her life was totally different now, because she had a loving family and found the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with.
She couldnt die.
