My Wife Is The Final Boss - Chapter 39
Chapter 39 Internal View of the Chess Game
When Xu Chang’an returned to Sunset Rain Peak, he could clearly feel that the atmosphere here was different from other places.
If Tianming Peak was very nervous, everyone came and went like the wind. The steep cliff that was broken by a sword gave off a Xianxia feeling, but Sunset Rain Peak did not feel like an immortal sect at all. This place was like a water village, making people feel comfortable in Jiangnan.
There was none of the simplicity of Tianming Peak, only complicated terrain and exquisite buildings.
Xu Chang’an walked down the teleportation array and saw a clean limestone brick in front of him. A stone bridge was set up on the clear lake. Looking to the left, there was a large lake with no edges. To the right, there was an ancient city. It was very romantic.
The cultivators of Sunset Rain Peak did not live in cave abodes or tall buildings. Instead, they lived in single-family wooden houses, courtyard houses, and even small boats. It could only be said that this was indeed a place where only girls lived. It was extremely unique in the entire immortal sect.
Xu Chang’an was not used to it when he first went up the mountain, but ever since he found out that the cultivators here were different from ordinary cultivators and that there were people cultivating in the four arts, such as zither, chess, calligraphy, dancing, and tea, he understood the uniqueness of this place.
Life had to be romantic. If there was no mood, how could there be music, chess, calligraphy, and painting?
He walked along the path not far away.
As an outer sect disciple, Xu Chang’an was very famous on Sunset Rain Peak.
After all, he was a man, so anyone could come and talk to him.
This area was really peaceful. There were two or three girls walking together. When they saw him, they smiled and many people looked at him gently.
“Junior Brother, you’re back.” When Xu Chang’an passed by the stone bridge, a young girl in a long dress sat on the boat and waved at him.
“Yes.” Xu Chang’an bowed back.
When the woman walking by the road saw Xu Chang’an, she said calmly, “Junior Brother, I need to raise a pot of Devil’s ilvy there. Well… as usual, help me raise it for two days before sending it over.”
“Okay.” Xu Chang’an expressed that he understood.
The woman watched Xu Chang’an leave.
It was just a pot of Devil’s Ivy hat could be found anywhere. However, the ones that Xu Chang’an had taken care of was more energetic than ordinary ones, and its vitality distribution was more agile.
On Sunset Rain Peak, Xu Chang’an was an internal affairs deacon, but the girls on Sunset Rain Peak were too strange, so they asked him to do anything. There were many people who invited him to tea or even watch the sword dance.
Xu Chang’an wouldn’t resist, because this was his job. He would earn a considerable amount of contribution points every month.
Beside the stone pavilion, two girls were playing chess. There was a chessboard and two chess boxes on the round table in front of them.
The girl in black grabbed a few black chess pieces from the chess box and put them back. When the black chess pieces fell back into the chess box, they collided with the other chess pieces, producing a crisp sound.
She saw Xu Chang’an passing by and gave the girl in white a look. The latter pursed her lips and smiled. She stood up and said, “Young Master Xu, come over for a while.”
Xu Chang’an turned around and cupped his hands. “Senior.”
On Sunset Rain Peak, there were people who called him anything. For example, Junior Brother, Junior Brother Xu, Young Master Xu, Young Master… He was already used to it.
The girl in white stood up from the stone bench and gave up her seat. She said, “You’ll be the judge. Accompany her for the second
Xu Chang’an didn’t hesitate. He sat down beside the chessboard and looked at the girl in black opposite him.

The girl in black did not look at Xu Chang’an. Her gaze was only on the chessboard. She slowly said, “Watch the game.”
“Then I’ll play chess with her.” The girl in white naturally stood behind Xu Chang’an and propped her hand up to watch the game.
Xu Chang’an sized up the chessboard in front of him with an extremely focused gaze.
The chess games played by the girls here were different from the ones he knew, but they had the same effect. Xu Chang’an had learned some of them in a year on Sunset Rain Peak.
Not long after, Xu Chang’an picked up a white chess piece and placed it on the upper left corner of the chessboard.
The girl in black’s eyes moved. She picked up a black chess piece and threw it at another star on the chessboard.
Xu Chang’an continued to place his piece on the chessboard without thinking. The girl in black was not to be outdone.
The two of them did not stop at all.
The sound of chess pieces falling could be heard in the stone pavilion. Every chess piece landed extremely steadily. Not long after, the black and white chess pieces had already occupied more than half of the chessboard.
Xu Chang’an, who was focused on the chess game, did not notice that the entire chessboard was like a dense starry sky. The eyes of the black-clothed girl opposite her became deeper and deeper, and her brows were furrowed. It was as if a spiritual power storm was wreaking havoc in her eyes, and even her breathing became much faster.
Xu Chang’an gradually slowed down.
Not long after, he put down the chess piece in his hand and looked up. “Senior Sister, I lost.”
“Yes, you’re quite powerful.” The girl in white looked at the girl in black who was still immersed in the chess game and said to Xu Chang’an with a faint smile, “Sorry to have troubled you. Go ahead.”
Xu Changan nodded, walked down the stone pavilion, and followed the path.
Although it sounded strange, playing chess with the girls here could be considered a part of his job. After recording it, he would also be given contribution points and spirit stones at the end of the month.
In front of the chessboard, the eyes of the girl in black who was playing chess with Xu Chang’an were filled with mixed emotions. She took a deep breath and asked the girl in white in front of her, “How is it?”
“Your chess style is stable, but you’re still a little inexperienced and don’t know how to be flexible.” The white-clothed girl tilted her head. She looked at the weakness in the black-clothed girl’s eyes and said seriously in the direction where Xu Chang’an left, “Our junior brother is getting stranger and stranger.”
They were not simply playing chess.
The chessboard was a Dharma artifact, and the chess pieces were also Dharma artifacts. The entire game was a murderous array. Every step was a mental tribulation.
Even people at their realm would fall into the internal scene and be consigned to eternal damnation.
Of course, it wouldn’t be so cruel for her to play chess with her own people, but it would also affect her mental state. For example, the girl in black would take the fall. Every step would magnify her dark thoughts.
But Xu Chang’an was different.
Logically speaking, he should have been controlled by the chessboard the moment he sat down. However, from the beginning to the end, Xu Chang’an was not affected by the chessboard. His gaze was clear and focused. After completing the game, he calmly admitted defeat.

On the other hand, the winner’s face was pale and she could not extricate himself from the internal scene.
In the past, they had also played internal chess with Xu Chang’an, but it was all low-level chess pieces and was controlled within the Origin Source Realm.
“This is the inner scene of a late-stage Brightheart Realm cultivator, but it still can’t affect him.” The white-clothed girl curled her lips. “No wonder Senior Sister Wen said that cultivation at Sunset Rain Peak is based on him… Pingniang really picked up a treasure for us.”
“I guessed it.” The girl in black had recovered.
“Senior Sister, why don’t we do it for Master first?” The white-clothed girl said seriously, “When he opens up, he will fight with others.”
