161 Li Shentan, the abandoned son of the Li Consortium

The atmosphere in the room stiffened for a while. Honestly, not even Ren Xiaosu expected such a reversal. The strange frequency the two mental patients were communicating on actually connected.

How… unexpected.

As a matter of fact, the scriptures seeking group was becoming more and more complete. Chen Wudi had not only gathered his master and his three disciples, he even considered they would need the carrying pole as well.

Ren Xiaosu thought all that was needed now were the two baskets and the White Dragon Horse to join the group.

At this moment, Yan Liuyuan looked at the girl and said with a smile, "Little girl, what are you called in this life?"

"I'm Si Liren," the girl replied.

"What's your superpower?" Yan Liuyuan continued asking.

"I have extraordinary strength," Si Liren said proudly.

When Ren Xiaosu heard this, he felt a little hesitant. The last person who said something like that was still tied up and held in a bedroom...

However, Ren Xiaosu felt he could not be too arbitrary. She had successfully reunited with Chen Wudi after all...

Yan Liuyuan smiled and said, "How strong are you? Can you show us?"

Si Liren made a noise of agreement as she casually lifted Wang Dalong. Wang Dalong was so frightened he kept screaming.

Yan Liuyuan said with a sigh, "Looks like Friar Sand is the one who's getting carried around by the carrying pole in this reincarnation."

Next to them, Xiaoyu smiled and said, "Liren, are you hungry? Do you want Big Sis to cook something for you?"

"I'm not hungry," Si Liren said cutely.

Luo Lan could not accept this. He just could not understand why the people he worked so hard to rescue always ended up joining the Western Paradise scriptures seeking group.

After so many days of planning, Ren Xiaosu got the better end of the deal? Why did all the supernatural beings keep flocking to Ren Xiaosu?!

"I don't believe it. This little girl must have taken a blind guess!" Luo Lan shouted.

"But no one colluded with her beforehand or anything…" Ren Xiaosu said awkwardly. "She was brought here by you and hasn't left your line of sight either."

"Chen Wudi mentioned the White Dragon Horse earlier," Luo Lan said, "so she might have guessed something from that."

In Luo Lan's view, how could there be such a coincidence in this world? 'If you shouted out "carrying pole," I would shout out "senior apprentice brother?" Who are you fucking trying to bluff?! Is this some kind of comedy?!'

Luo Lan looked at Ren Xiaosu, but Ren Xiaosu immediately said, "Why are you looking at me? I don't know what's going on either."

It would be justifiable to say that one person was acting crazy, but two people acting crazy together? That was just too strange. At some point, Ren Xiaosu started to believe he might really be the reincarnation of Tripitaka.

Of course, he was very sure this was impossible.

Suddenly, Yan Liuyuan pointed at Luo Lan and asked the girl, "Who is he?"

The girl looked at Luo Lan. "Benbo'erba."

Luo Lan was confounded and nearly broke down. Ben? Ben, my ass! How could she have also gotten this right?

Yan Liuyuan then pointed at Ren Xiaosu and said, "Who is he?"

"Master!" the little girl said with a sweet smile.

"Who am I?" Yan Liuyuan asked the girl while watching her closely.

"Oh, you're Little White Dragon," the girl answered matter-of-factly.

It was Yan Liuyuan's turn to laugh. "Sadly, I'm not."

The girl was stunned. She was at a loss. At this moment, they heard clapping come from outside the shop. A handsome young man walked in with a smile on his face. "Sure enough, we can't fool everyone. Liren, come back over here."

In that instant, the atmosphere in the room became tense. Ren Xiaosu did not even notice when the young man had stepped in.

Simultaneously, Luo Lan, Tang Zhou, and his men raised their guns and aimed at that young man as though they were facing a formidable foe.

It was not that Luo Lan was getting nervous, but that he knew of his identity as a Demon Whisperer!

Luo Lan clearly had not bothered rescuing this young man, so how did he escape from that room? Or was it… 

Suddenly, Luo Lan understood. It was likely this young man was not under the control of the psychiatric hospital and had already gained control over everyone in it.

That magical hypnotism was able to control others silently. Although the staff of the psychiatric hospital had been wary enough of him, they might not have even known they were already under his control.

This Demon Whisperer was not released by Luo Lan. He was capable of freely passing through the hospital doors since a long time ago.

Hypnotism like this was truly enough to make all of the powers that be afraid.

Stronghold 109 was probably going to become even more chaotic.

They saw the young man smiling while being held at gunpoint. He said, "Let me introduce myself. My name is Li Shentan, the abandoned son of the Li Consortium. I don't have any malice towards you all."

Ren Xiaosu looked at Luo Lan. This guy was actually with the Li Consortium? Ren Xiaosu realized who this person was. He was probably that very dangerous person Yang Xiaojin had talked about. However, she had not mentioned he was from the Li Consortium.

Luo Lan whispered, "He's a Demon Whisperer, and he's extremely dangerous."

Actually, Luo Lan was also very puzzled. Even he was unaware that Li Shentan was actually with the Li Consortium. But why did someone from the Li Consortium get locked up in the psychiatric hospital? Wasn't this the Li Consortium's own territory?

It seemed like there was much more behind this "abandoned son" phrase he mentioned.

The girl named Si Liren had already returned to Li Shentan's side. It seemed he had purposely allowed the girl to get saved by Luo Lan. But what was their motive in doing that? Was it just for the sake of locating where they stayed?

Ren Xiaosu suddenly had a feeling of being exposed. Li Shentan knew about Chen Wudi and knew what he had said before. He even knew Chen Wudi identified Luo Lan as Benbo'erba!

What a terrible feeling this was. It felt as though everything was in his control.

But how did he know about all that? Did the Qing Consortium get infiltrated? With his power, it would be a piece of cake for him to obtain intel from members of the Qing Consortium.

Ren Xiaosu asked calmly, "What do you want?"

Li Shentan looked at Ren Xiaosu and said with a smile, "It's just that the two of us are getting a little lonely in this stronghold. Now that so many friends have gathered here, I feel we should come out to greet everyone."

"Alright, the introductions are over." Ren Xiaosu prepared to see them out. He did not have any intention of crossing paths with this Demon Whisperer.

But for some reason, Ren Xiaosu felt like a huge burden had been lifted off his chest after learning that Si Liren was not really a "carrying pole." He truly did not want to be Tripitaka.

Li Shentan seemed quite surprised about Ren Xiaosu's attitude, but he wasn't particularly bothered.

He suddenly said to Ren Xiaosu with a smile, "Somehow, I get the feeling there's something very special about you."

It was Ren Xiaosu's turn to be surprised. "I'm super handsome?"

"No, no, no." Li Shentan pointed at his head and said with a laugh, "You're very special here, so… let's meet again if fate allows. On top of that, Boss Luo, I didn't hypnotize any of your subordinates, so don't worry too much."

Curious, Ren Xiaosu asked, "Why didn't you leave the psychiatric hospital before now?"

Li Shentan gave it some thought and said, "Because it wasn't the right time to come out." Li Shentan then led Si Liren out and walked off into the darkness.

Before they left, Si Liren even turned around and waved to everyone. "Bye bye, everyone. I'm very happy to have met you all!"

Ren Xiaosu realized from Li Shentan's words that he must have something he needed to do since he decided to leave the hospital. Could it also have something to do with the Li Consortium's research results?

Luo Lan let out a sigh beside him. "It was all for naught in the end. I had better keep chatting up Dong Funan. I think she's still the more reliable one."

Ren Xiaosu remained speechless as he stared at Luo Lan. He hesitated over whether he should tell Luo Lan that Dong Funan was actually not reliable either.Baskets go on either end of the carrying pole.Little White Dragon is the third son of the Dragon King of the West Sea.
