The Thrush Chapter 29

CSI

Perverted Mentality

This time Chu Liuxiang’s crisis had indeed passed, but when he thought of Hu Tiehua and the others’ current situation, inwardly he could not help feeling even more difficult to bear, even more anxious.

Now that the Water Matriarch has returned, most probably Hu Tiehua and the others have met with treacherous assault.

Chu Liuxiang himself was not far from death. He was hiding in this closet, he could neither advance nor retreat. Sooner or later, he would be discovered.

If it were someone else, perhaps he would have already gone crazy with anxiety.

But coming to this point, Chu Liuxiang was not anxious instead, because he knew that being anxious was useless, on the contrary, it would make him lose his calm.

Now, he must be calm, calmly waiting for the opportunity.

Too bad the opportunity was indeed very slim.

Half a day later, Gong Nanyan also came back.

In all the world, when a disciple enters the master’s bedroom, they will make the report first, and then pay their respects. Although Wulin people did not bother about trifles, but the etiquette between master and disciple must not be missed.

What’s more, the strict rules of Shen Shui Gong were known all over the world.

The strange thing was that Gong Nanyan simply walked in casually, like a wife walking into her husband’s bedroom. Furthermore, unexpectedly she sat on the bed.

Yin Ji was lying there, she did not even show the least bit of reaction. Her disciple sat on her bed, but she, a person who was obsessed with cleanliness in all her life, did not care at all.

Only to hear Gong Nanyan say, “Those three men have been locked up. When they wake up, San Jie [third (older) sister] will interrogate [orig. force a confession] them.”

Chu Liuxiang could not help feeling relieved inwardly. Although Hu Tiehua and the others were in a dangerous situation, at least they were not dead yet. As long as they were not dead, there was still a chance.

Gong Nanyan continued, “But Jiu Mei [ninth (younger) sister] thinks it’s somewhat inappropriate for San Jie to question them.”

“Inappropriate?”, ‘Shui Mu’ Yin Ji said.

Gong Nanyan said, “She thinks what they said is not false, they are indeed coming here looking for someone, because someone has indeed come here.”

Shui Mu said, “Oh?”

Gong Nanyan said, “She said that she had indeed found some footprints in front of the Buddhist Hall, but the guarding-inside-the-Buddhist-Hall San Jie insisted that there was no one, so she thought there’s something quite strange going on.”

Yin Ji only laughed coldly, but did not say anything.

Chu Liuxiang was even more worried. If Yin Ji found out that the ‘third sister’ was suspected of following her own interests and releasing the enemy, her situation would be really worrying. Chu Liuxiang really could not bear to let be in trouble for his sake.

After half a day, Yin Ji suddenly said, “Who do you think they are looking for?”

Gong Nanyan pondered silently for a moment, she said, “They have been wandering the Jianghu for a long time, their friends must be very many, how do I know which friends they are looking for?”

Yin Ji asked, “You don’t know that Huang Luzhi?”

Gong Nanyan said, “Why would I know him?”

Yin Ji said, “But he seems to know you.”

Gong Nanyan said, “Oh?”

Yin Ji said, “Could it be that you don’t know that Huang Luzhi is ‘his’ best friend in all his life, also ‘his’ only friend?”

Gong Nanyan bit her lip, she laughed coldly and said, “How would I know? ‘He’ is not my lover, why would he tell me these things?”

Yin Ji suddenly turned over, grabbed her hair, and spoke sternly, “I know you must be hiding a lot of things from me, right?”

Gong Nanyan bit her lip hard, but she did not speak.

Yin Ji said, “After you saw ‘him’ last night, what exactly happened? Why did you wait until this morning before you came back?”

She turned her hand around and wrapped her hair around her hand, Gong Nanyan was so much in pain that she nearly burst into tears, but there a smile appeared on the corner of her mouth, she said, “Are you jealous?”

Yin Ji said, “What am I jealous of?” [Just so you know, the original text was, ‘You eat vinegar?’ ‘What vinegar am I eating?’]

Gong Nanyan laughed maliciously and said, “You are afraid that I have some relationships with him, hence you’re jealous.”

Yin Ji laughed, but her laugh was a bit uneasy.

She laughed and said, “How can you have any relationship with him?”

Gong Nanyan blinked, she said, “Why can’t I? He’s a man, I’m a woman, a man and a woman together, wouldn’t it be a very normal thing?”

Yin Ji’s hand suddenly trembled. Loosening up her hair, she spoke hoarsely, “But you definitely wouldn’t do such a thing, would you?”

Gong Nanyan pulled her hair in front of her, she stroked it gently, and muttered, “He is really a very interesting man, no wonder you will never forget him.”

A blush gradually appeared on her face, as if a stream of heat rose up from the bottom of her heart.

Shocked, Yin Ji looked at her, she said, “You … could it be you really …”

Gong Nanyan’s almond eyes turned hazy, she spoke softly, “The strange thing is that his actions towards me are unexpectedly completely the same as yours towards me. When his hand was fondling me, I thought it was you, but compare to you, he …”

‘Slap!’ Yin Ji’s hand already slapped her face, she said angrily, “You are not allowed to continue.”

Gong Nanyan’s hand stroked her face, suddenly she tittered and said, “You are jealous, I know you are jealous.”

She wrapped her arms around Yin Ji’s neck, nibbled her ear lightly with her teeth, and spoke softly, “I like to see you jealous, as long as you are also willing to be jealous for me, even if I die for you immediately, I won’t have a problem.”

Yin Ji sat numbly, her eyes seemed to be a little moist, she muttered, “Why do you do this? Why?”

Gong Nanyan said, “Just because I can’t stand it, I’m going crazy, I want revenge.”

“Revenge?” Yin Ji said.

Gong Nanyan said, “Every time you are being good to me, I would think, is it because I look like him that you are being good to me? Whenever you hold me, I would think, did he hold you like this that you are holding me this way? When you are holding me, were you thinking about him in your heart?”

Yin Ji said, “You … you are thinking too much.”

Gong Nanyan said, “Not only I want revenge for myself, but also for you.”

Yin Ji’s voice trembling, she said, “For me?”

Gong Nanyan said, “Because he abandoned you, but you have never forgotten him. You love him, but he used this to threaten you, to force you that you did not have any choice but to let him leave this place …”

Yin Ji did not speak, but tears already flowed down her cheeks.

Chu Liuxiang really could not have imagined that the walking-alone-in-Wulin [unrivalled], considered-herself-unexcelled-in-the-world ‘Water Matriarch’ Yin Ji was also trapped by love, was turned upside down by passion; he never thought even more that her love was unexpectedly this abnormal.

Chu Liuxiang finally understood what was going on.

Yin Ji was originally an abnormal woman, her lust was abnormal, she hated men, but she vented her lust on women.

Hence the reason she accepted a lot of beautiful female disciples, and built a lot of secret passages, which could reach directly to all her female disciples’ bedroom.

The beautiful woman in white once warned Su Rongrong that she must not roam around randomly, precisely because she was afraid that if ‘Shui Mu’ Yin Ji saw her, she might grow an abnormal love and desire toward her.

It would really be an ‘unexpected dreadful disaster’.

In the past, ‘Xiong Niangzi’ came to Shen Shui Gong, he also had an abnormal relationship with Yin Ji. By the time Yin Ji found out that he was not a woman, it was already too late.

But ‘Xiong Niangzi’ had both feminine tenderness and masculine charm. ‘Shui Mu’ Yin Ji finally fell in love with him and could not extricate herself.

Thereupon they gave birth to Situ Jing.

However, ‘Xiong Niangzi’ was not willing to submit himself to be the ‘female’ under Yin Ji’s skirt forever. He wholeheartedly wanted to leave this place, although Yin Ji would not let him go, Xiong Niangzi used this secret to threaten her.

‘Shui Mu’ Yin Ji naturally did not want others to know that she was a perverted woman, so she finally had no choice but to let him go, but also did not allow him to come back, ever.

Yet she still could not forget him, because, someone like Xiong Niangzi, who had the advantages of male and female, both sexes, perhaps there would not be any second person in the world.

Therefore, Yin Ji chose Gong Nanyan, who looked very similar to ‘Xiong Niangzi’, as her lover, to fill the emptiness in her heart.

It was precisely because of this abnormal feeling that gave rise to many abnormal things.

Now, Chu Liuxiang has finally discovered Yin Ji’s secret.

But, what could he do?

He was not ‘Xiong Niangzi’; furthermore, he could not use this kind of secret to threaten Yin Ji like Xiong Niangzi. His situation was still the same as before.

His hope of survival was perhaps less than one in a hundred.

Gong Nanyan used her tongue to gently lick the tears on Yin Ji’s face, she used her breast to rubbed her breast, while some kind of a moan-like gasping noise was coming out of her throat.

But Yin Ji pushed her away, she said, “I want take a quiet rest, you go!”

Biting her lip, Gong Nanyan said, “You … you don’t want …”

Yin Ji said, “Now my mood is bad, I don’t want to think about anything.”

Gong Nanyan was silent for half a day, suddenly she rushed over and jumped into the pool.

Yin Ji waited for the ripples on the pool to disappear, suddenly she got out of bed and walked over to the wardrobe. She seemed to want to change clothes before going to bed.

Chu Liuxiang almost stopped breathing.

But Yin Ji went to the closet without opening the door.

She stood there with blank expression on her face, it was unclear what she was thinking in her heart. After a long time, she suddenly closed the wardrobe and locked it from the outside.

This wardrobe was also made of very thick marble. No matter who was locked inside, anybody could forget about breaking out through the wall. Chu Liuxiang’s heart sank immediately.

Could it be that she discovered someone was inside the wardrobe?

In that case, why did she not let him out, but locked him inside the wardrobe instead?

Fortunately, there are some carved decorative holes on the top of the wardrobe, so that when someone was locked in, they would not suffocate, only this kind of feeling was not pleasant.

If Yin Ji did not pick up the clothes, Chu Liuxiang would be locked in this stone prison-like wardrobe forever. If Yin Ji came to pick up the clothes, she would immediately discover him.

While Chu Liuxiang was at a loss of what to do, suddenly he heard Yin Ji said, “You already vowed never to enter Shen Shui Gong again, why are you coming back here now?”

Her voice was brimming with bitter resentment. At first Chu Liuxiang was shocked, but he understood in an instant: turned out she thought the one locked inside the wardrobe was Xiong Niangzi. She did not know that inside was not Xiong Niangzi at all, she thought that other than Xiong Niangzi, there was absolutely no other person in the world who could sneak into her bedroom.

Chu Liuxiang did not know if he should reveal it, for the time being, he could only keep his mouth shut.

Yin Ji said, “You ought to know, I don’t want to see you again.”

Chu Liuxiang mused inwardly, “No wonder after discovering there is someone inside the wardrobe, she locked it. Turned out she did not want to see Xiong Niangzi’s face again.”

Yin Ji went on, “Do you know why I sent Gong Nanyan go?”

She continued bitterly, “Because I also don’t want Nanyan to see you again, she is still a child, why did you defile her? Could it be that you just wanted to hurt me? Could it be that you have not hurt me enough?”

Chu Liuxiang did not dare to speak, but he promptly sighed.

Yin Ji said, “You don’t need to sigh, and you don’t need to deceive me with graceful words, flowery speech either. I will never forgive you again; you should know that.”

She continued with stern voice, “You have violated your oath in the past, since you dare to come here again, I don’t have to care about old feeling of the past either.”

All along Chu Liuxiang was trying to recall the tone of Xiong Niangzi’s voice, this moment he suddenly said, “You really want me to die here?”

He was also aware that his imitation was not too similar, but Yin Ji and Xiong Niangzi have not seen each other for many years, plus a person’s voice will more or less change with age.

He only hoped that Yin Ji could not tell the difference.

Indeed Yin Ji did not hear it, she laughed coldly and said, “Could it be that you still think I will let you go again like last time?”

Chu Liuxiang said, “But … but you should let me see you for the last time.”

Yin Ji was silent for a long time before speaking hoarsely, “Why do you still want to see me?”

Chu Liuxiang said, “Because I …”

Yin Ji spoke sternly, “Don’t say it, whatever you say, I definitely will not believe it.”

Chu Liuxiang said, “Are you afraid that after seeing me, you can’t bear to kill me again?” Every sentence he said has gone through his consideration three times, he absolutely did not dare to say one wrong word. He knew that the more he wanted Yin Ji to see ‘him’, the more Yin Ji would not want to see him.

Sure enough, Yin Ji said, “No matter what you say, I will never see you again.”

Chu Liuxiang said, “But you should at least tell me first, how did Jing’er die?”

Yin Ji pondered silently for a long time again, she spoke sadly, “She never knew that I was her mother.”

Chu Liuxiang said, “Of course you wouldn’t say it, because you are a ‘sheng nu’ [holy maiden], how could you give birth to a child? And in order to keep my old oath, I had no choice but to deceive her, telling her that her mother had already died.”

Yin Ji said, “Because our manner is too ambiguous, she thought her mother was killed by me, she always wanted revenge.”

Chu Liuxiang sighed and said, “Poor child, could it be that she did not understand that she would never have a chance?”

Yin Ji said, “Hence she looked for an opportunity, until that evil monk Wuhua came. She knew Wuhua was a Shaolin disciple, plus he had a very good relationship with people in Jianghu, she thought of using Wuhua’s power to deal with me, therefore, unexpectedly she did not hesitate to lure Wuhua with sex.”

Chu Liuxiang suddenly saw the light.

He was originally baffled that Situ Jing was just a young girl, even if she yearned for love, it would be unlikely that she would be this loose in morals, unexpectedly she took the initiative to throw herself at Wuhua.

Only now did he know that turned out Situ Jing also had a purpose for Wuhua. The two persons were you hoodwink me and I cheat you [idiom], neither harbored good intention in their hearts.

Yin Ji went on, “Who would have thought that Wuhua also wanted to exploit her to steal the Tian Yi Shen Shui [Heavenly One Divine Water]? Once succeeded, he immediately abandoned her. At that time, she was already pregnant. Afraid that I would deal with her in accordance with the school’s rules, unexpectedly she committed suicide, harboring the hatred in her heart.”

Speaking to this point, her voice was choked with emotion, she spoke in grief, “She did not know that I would not kill her no matter what. Even to her death, she … she still did not know that I was her biological mother.” Only now was this winding and tragic contentious issue as the water recedes, the rocks appear [idiom: the truth comes to light].

Chu Liuxiang heaved a deep sigh and said, “In that case, you already know the inside story early on.”

Yin Ji said, “Of course I do.”

Chu Liuxiang said, “Then why do you still suspect that someone else stole the Tian Yi Shen Shui?”

Yin Ji said, “I never suspected anyone else at all, however, this secret absolutely must never be revealed to others, therefore, I have to find a scapegoat.”

Chu Liuxiang deliberately asked, “Who did you find?”

Yin Ji replied, “Chu Liuxiang.”

Smiling wryly, Chu Liuxiang said, “You did, after all, find the right person.”

Yin Ji said, “I must seek him, because only he has the ability to do these things. If I seek someone else, how could Jianghu people believe?”

Surprisingly, in the tone of her voice, there was not the slightest bit of regret, on the contrary, it sounded like she was very proud of herself.

Chu Liuxiang could not help asking, “In order to protect Shen Shui Gong’s reputation, unexpectedly you did not hesitate to sacrifice the life of an innocent person?”

Yin Ji laughed sternly, she said, “In order to protect Shen Shui Gong’s reputation, I would not hesitate to do anything.”

She stopped talking for half a day, suddenly she let out a faint sigh and said, “Besides, except for you, in my eyes, other men are inferior to dog. Let’s not talk about the death of one Chu Liuxiang, even if a thousand, ten thousand men die, what harm is there?”

Chu Liuxiang sighed inwardly, he said, “In that case, it was not because he did not make an appointment that you wanted to kill him.”

“That’s right,” Yin Ji said, “If he doesn’t come, he will die, but if he comes, he will definitely die too.”

Chu Liuxiang pondered silently for a long time, he said slowly, “Do you still remember someone called Liu Wumei?”

Yin Ji said, “Of course I remember, she is a disciple of Shi Guanyin.” Suddenly her voice became excited, she spoke loudly, “How did you know her?”

Chu Liuxiang chuckled and said, “No need to be jealous, I don’t really know her, but because she had done a very sensational thing recently, hence I know her name.”

Yin Ji said, “A very sensational thing? What thing?”

Chu Liuxiang said, “In order to ask you to neutralize her poison, she killed Chu Liuxiang.”

Yin Ji said, “Neutralize her poison? What kind of poison hit her?”

Chu Liuxiang said in astonishment, “You don’t know?”

Yin Ji said, “I only know that she is practically not poisoned.”

Now Chu Liuxiang was really stunned.

Turned out that this was Liu Wumei’s trick, she wanted him to walk right into the trap, turned out he did not guess wrong after all, she really was a spy sent by Shi Guanyin to the Central Plains.

Chu Liuxiang almost vomited blood. He originally thought he would never be fooled by a woman, who would have thought that in the end he still fell once.

And this time he was duped really bad.

Yin Ji suddenly said again, “Do you know how am I going to deal with you?”

Chu Liuxiang smiled wryly and said, “I just hope you won’t sink this wardrobe to the bottom of the lake.”

Yin Ji heaved a sigh, he said, “You are really a smart person, too bad that smart people often do some very stupid things.”

Chu Liuxiang felt his mouth bitter, he spoke hoarsely, “Could it be that you really are unwilling to let me see you for the last time?”

Yin Ji pondered silently for a long time again, suddenly she laughed coldly and said, “Chu Liuxiang, you don’t need to play tricks anymore. Since you know so many of my secrets, do you think I will let you live?”

Chu Liuxiang’s entire body turned cold, his stomach produced acid right away; heaving a long sigh, he said, “Turns out you already know.”

Yin Ji spoke coldly, “Originally you did deceive me, but you shouldn’t say that Chu Liuxiang has been killed by Liu Wumei. Even if Liu Wumei really did harm Chu Liuxiang, she definitely would not dare to let other people know. Although Chu Liuxiang is not a good person, his friends are not a few, could it be that she is not afraid that others will seek her for revenge?”

Chu Liuxiang sighed and said, “I really underestimated you, you are much more astute than I thought.”

Yin Ji said, “But I did not underestimate you. I know that based on her skill, Liu Wumei absolutely cannot kill you.”

Chu Liuxiang suddenly laughed aloud and said, “No wonder you don’t dare to let me out so that you and I can have a life and death decisive battle.”
