The next day, Ling is tired and wants to consult with his master about his cultivation. He tells his master that he's tired because he hasn't had much time to learn anything. Ling asks his master to teach him some of his skills, but his master tells him to be steady and to stand still. Ling wants to know why Ling's foundation isn't as strong as his, and his master says it's because Ling doesn't have as much free time as he does. Ling says that if he had that much time, he'd be able to cultivate more. He also tells Ling that he overheard his master and the sect leader discussing the plague, and he wants to get rid of it. He says he overheard the two of them discussing a plague on the foot of a mountain, and that Ling will be sent to the mountain to help him. Ling is so angry that he threatens to break his legs if he disobeys his master's orders. Ling tells his father-in-law that Ling is making his blood boil. He asks why Ling wasn't supposed to lead the group on the trip, and why Ling was the one giving them orders throughout the journey. Ling thinks that the reason Ling was supposed to be the one leading the group was because she knew how to use her body to gain what she now has. She even lied to the whole group about how powerful she was, and how she could sleep with her. She's too serious, and boring to be trusted.
