“Seventh sister is looking for the man lurking in the Cass tribe.”
The two consciousnesses collided fiercely. When Little Minghui saw Seventh Sister’s consciousness subside in an instant, she hesitated for a moment and continued to follow quietly. This consciousness was very subtle. It took her around the Cass tribe in a big circle and disappeared in a certain spot.
When Qian Wanyu opened her eyes, she spat out a mouthful of blood.
“I seem to have seen a consciousness like Ninth Sister just now.”
“It’s not like, it is.” Qing Mo sighed, “I don’t think your Ninth Sister has been discovered though.”
Qian Wanyu quickly stood up and opened Little Colour’s door, “When did she enter meditation?”
Little Colour didn’t want to answer her but seeing that Qian Wanyu’s face was not good, she still said the truth, “It’s been more than half an hour.”
Qing Mo could only comfort her, “Don’t worry, maybe your Ninth Sister can find something.”
It’s okay if he didn’t say it. When he said that Qian Wanyu was even more anxious, she was afraid of the danger of this matter, so she didn’t let Ninth Sister get involved. She didn’t expect the little guy’s wings to be so hard and dare to do this without her permission. If she and Ninth Sister hadn’t both cultivated and knew the breath of each other, even she would have been deceived by the other party.
Qian Wanyu waited anxiously in the room for an hour, and when she was about to grow worried, Little Minghui opened her eyes. When she saw that there was one more person in the room, she immediately retreated with a guilty conscience, “Seventh Sister, why haven’t you rested yet?”
“You still want to hide from me?”
“No, no.” She shook her head and waved her hands quickly, “I just wanted to go out and play for a while, but I never thought I would meet that person, the one we have been looking for.”
Seeing that she wasn’t hurt, Qian Wanyu calmed down a little, “Did he play any tricks?”
“Yes.” Little Minghui wanted to say this, “It took me around for a while, and finally disappeared inexplicably.”
“Does that mean he didn’t find you?”
“He shouldn’t have found me.” Little Minghui pondered uncertainly, “I saw that the consciousness finally disappeared into thin air at a place. Could he actually be there?”
It should be quite normal to go home after a walk around.
The only pity was that in order to track this person, she could not hear the secret between Cass and Karu.
Qian Wanyu didn’t expect the little guy to find out by accident. Qing Mo urged her in the soul sea, and she asked helplessly, “Where did it finally disappear?”
Little Minghui took out a piece of paper and drew a map with a swipe. After the map was drawn, the path she travelled became clear, “This place.”
“It’s actually here?”
The next day, the two got up early in the morning and planned to go to that place again. There was no other reason aside from the address Little Minghui drew was the back of the mountain in this area, which is the border of the Cass tribe.
They squatted beside the creek, secretly looking at the time when the two groups of people patrolling here alternated.
“Seventh sister, will that person continue to tease us?”
“Maybe.” Qian Wanyu didn’t rule out this possibility, but even if it was a trap, she wanted to find the person who came and went freely, “Let’s find out if there is another way to reach the other side of the mountain.”
“You guard me, I’ll go down and have a look.”
Little Minghui tried to catch but couldn’t catch her, so she watched Qian Wanyu dive into the water. A few bubbles appeared in the stream and she disappeared. She just sat there and waited for the news. She raised her head and saw the old tree behind her, “Big tree, do you know any way to get to the mountain behind?”
The big tree shook its branches, “It can be reached from below.”
“Below? Underwater? Or under your roots?” Little Minghui asked, tilting her head, she had a vague guess that there might be a dungeon below, and the person went into the ground yesterday and disappeared.
When Qian Wanyu climbed out of the stream, she also grabbed two fish. The Beast People patrolling in the distance kept staring at the movement here, and saw that Qian Wanyu had fished out several fish as if they were here to catch fish like yesterday, without thinking about it, they turned around and went to inspect another place nearby.
“Seventh sister, what did you find down there?”
It was a hole that only one person could fit into. The hole was several years old, and it was covered with a kind of moss that only existed under the river. Qian Wanyu stretched out her hand and collected some in her sleeve in order to explore the secret of the cave.
“Seventh sister, I also have good news.”
“Shh, let’s go back and talk.”
Qian Wanyu brought the two fish back and her body was wet and looked very funny. She held the small hand, and the two exchanged secrets with each other through double cultivation.
The big tree just said that the Cass tribe was originally a mountain, and this mountain and the mountain behind it were originally connected but were flattened.
Later, when the mountain was flattened, some people migrated to this place, digging up the land, and gradually it developed to the current appearance.
The road leading to the other mountain was filled up, and the underground passage was the place Seventh Sister had just found in the stream. At first, the stream hadn’t left the mountain, but as time passed, the stream gradually became a river hiding the hole underneath
Qian Wanyu had a plan in mind, “There is a time difference between the two patrols. I will take advantage of their shift tomorrow to check the truth.”
“No.” Little Minghui refused, “It’s too dangerous, I want to follow.”
“You can swim?” Qian Wanyu blocked her in one sentence. The last time she passed from the third peak to the fourth peak, Dongfang Minghui showed that she was afraid of water. Qian Wanyu added another knife, “That cave can only hold one person.”
Little Minghui put her hands on her hips and pouted, very dissatisfied, “Seventh sister, you dislike me and think I’ll hold you back.”
Seeing her appearance, Qian Wanyu couldn’t help but touch her little head, “No.”
“Then take me there.”
The two debated this issue for a long time until they reached the door of the small courtyard and decided on a best of both worlds solution. As soon as they opened the door, they saw a few Beast People standing in the small courtyard. Cass carried Karu on his back pacing around the courtyard.
“You guys are finally back.” Cass saw Little Minghui and it was like seeing a little angel flapping wings and shining brightly, “Help me check Karu, he won’t wake up no matter what we do!”
Before little Minghui could get close, she smelled a smoky wine smell. The smell was unpleasant. She pinched her nose and stared at Cass with a serious face, “How much wine have you two been drinking?!”
Cass laughed a few times and put Karu down in a hurry. The Beast People on the side hurriedly spread a layer of animal skins on the ground so that he could lie on the ground.
Little Minghui didn’t even have to look to know what happened to the other party. Just because of the way the two of them drank yesterday, it was a lucky thing that they didn’t drink themselves to death. She still stepped forward and glanced at Karu’s eyelids, “He’s just drunk, he’ll be fine after a few days and nights of sleep.”
Hearing this conclusion, Cass was dumbfounded. He sat on the ground and kicked Karu’s thigh angrily. As a result, Karu who was supposed to be unconscious didn’t respond at all and turned over to snore.
“It’s too noisy, take him away.”
“Thank you little shaman.”
“Hey, Cass, don’t go yet.” Seeing that he was so concerned, Little Minghui was curious. Maybe the two were brothers? But they don’t look alike? After listening to the words of the two of them yesterday, she made up a family drama in her head, “I have something to discuss with you.”
Cass suddenly cheered up, “If you need something I will do it for you.”
Qian Wanyu pushed open the door and motioned for the two of them not to stand in the courtyard and talk.
“Actually, you can definitely help with this matter.” Little Minghui had already thought about her words. “It’s a matter of life and death. I would like to ask you to help me find the elves.”
“Elves?” Cass tugged at the messy hair on top of his head. “Although we often trade goods with other clansmen, the elves have always lived in seclusion. It’s not easy to find them.”
Little Minghui looked disappointed, “Cass, you mean you don’t know where the elves are?”
“Yes.” Cass nodded helplessly. He couldn’t see the disappointed look on Minghui’s face. He added another sentence, “But, there is a place where you might be able to find out the specific location of the elves.”
“Our Beast People have a very large trading place, and there, maybe you can exchange something for the position of the elves.”
Little Minghui rolled her eyes slightly, and asked with joy, “Really?”
Cass met those expecting eyes, and he could only say the truth, “It is said that if you have any questions, as long as you can afford the payment, you can find your answer in the trading venue, but it is only a rumour. I don’t know if it’s true.”
“Is this an exchange of information with anything?” She couldn’t help asking.
“Almost.” Cass just heard someone mention the trading venue in passing. “If you want to go, you can go with the clansmen who purchase from the living area at the beginning of next month. The trading venue is open at the beginning of every month. On the day of the opening, the opening will last for about ten days, and the Cass tribe will also send a team of people who need things to it.”
“There’s still half a month left?”
“You can wait.”
When there were only two people left in the room, Little Minghui tilted her head and looked at Qian Wanyu, “Seventh sister, do you think the exchange is somewhat similar to the Rose Building? Doesn’t the Rose Building sell intelligence?”
“Hmm.” There is indeed some similarity.
But she had never heard Aunt Mo mention that Rose Building having a branch in the Beast Land. It might just be a coincidence.
“Seventh sister, take me with you.”
Little Minghui cheated, she took advantage of Qian Wanyu sitting on the stool, to jump up with her calves wrapped around her waist with strength acting like she wouldn’t come down unless she brought her along.
Qian Wanyu was afraid that she would fall so she had to support her with her hands.
“Seventh sister, take me with you, or you won’t be allowed to go!” Dongfang Minghui put her arms around her neck and said softly, “I’ll be worried.”
“You are afraid of water.”
This is simply an endless argument.
“I don’t care, didn’t the Seventh Sister take me out safely last time I was afraid of water?” Dongfang Minghui planned to be cheeky for a while, anyway, she knew she was a hindrance but she still wanted to accompany Seventh Sister.
Qian Wanyu was so worn out by her that she finally made an exception and said, “If you can solve the water problem, I will take you there.”
“Seventh sister, this is what you said!”
Dongfang Minghui climbed off her and walked towards Little Colour’s room, “Little Colour, please help me.”
“I can help you but what’s in it for me? Also what about him?” Little Colour pointed to Lu Xing behind her. Lu Xing was wrapped in white silk. In addition to him still being unconcious, his ageing problem hadn’t been resolved, Little Colour was still paying attention to him every day.
This is why Dongfang Minghui was eager to find the elves.
“I asked Seventh Sister to set up a barrier in the room, Toothless can take care of it, let Leen and Jing Ke stay outside, there should be no accident.”
Little Colour put her arms around her chest, “What’s the benefit?”
“I’ll find a medicinal plant you need.”
“Give me that colourful flower.”
“No.” Little Minghui curled her lips, then softened her tone and said, “How about another plant?”
Little Colour rolled her eyes at her, “Forget about it.”
“Yes, yes let’s just put it on the tab!”
After one person and one plant reached an agreement, Little Colour returned to her soul sea. One big and one small walked towards the stream as usual. The Beast People on the patrol were no longer surprised thinking they were catching fish in the stream.
As expected, Qian Wanyu jumped into the water, touched a few fish from the stream, and threw them ashore. After they left, Qian Wanyu waved to Little Minghui on the shore, “Come down.”
Dongfang Minghui was a little afraid of the clear stream, she was still afraid of water, “Little Colour, pull me down.”
With Little Colour around, she wouldn’t drown, but she couldn’t avoid choking.
Little Colour’s vines were very direct. She first probed into the mouth of the cave then tied Little Minghui into a dumpling dragging her into the stream with a swish.
There is indeed a secret passage under the stream, and the entrance of the secret passage was only enough for a single person to crawl, but the people who built the secret passage probably did not expect that the secret passage would end up underwater, the water flow on both sides was not connected. Qian Wanyu just came down while fishing and had already explored how long this secret road was.
They quickly found a landing spot. Qian Wanyu saw the little guy’s face was purple and her eyes were closed, she looked like she was about to drown holding her breath. She quickly pressed her abdomen a few times, “Ninth Sister!”
“Cough cough cough.”
They only came down for a stick of incense worth of time, but Dongfang Minghui felt as if a century had passed, the feeling of water pouring in was uncomfortable, “Ahem, Seventh sister.”
“I told you not to come, you have to listen.” Qian Wanyu rubbed her hands and stood up until she warmed them. “Can you stand up?”
Dongfang Minghui found that they were standing at the high point of the secret passage, there would be no water flow when they continued up, “Seventh sister, isn’t this secret passage one where water flows down?”
Naturally not, although the direction of the water flow was the same, but the water flow flows out from another road. Qian Wanyu also suspected that the source of the stream’s formation was this way, but after observation, she found that it was not. The two of them were wet, after using some spiritual power the clothes on their bodies were dry again.
The passage felt quite long, after walking for half an hour, they felt a damp wind. When the wind blew on them, there was a chilly feeling, not only that, but they also smelled a strong corrosive smell.
The two looked at each other.
This sort of rotten smell means something old or dead.
They guessed correctly, they turned a corner and the passage became wider. The passage that used to accommodate one person could now accommodate two people. Qian Wanyu held Dongfang Minghui’s hand tightly, “Don’t move, just follow in my footsteps.”
The bigger the passage, the stronger the wind blew as if someone was blowing it out. Not far away, they saw a mountain of corpses piled up. The corpses were all divided, and there was nothing left, just a bunch of skeletons.
Little Minghui widened her eyes and looked around. She was afraid that something strange would suddenly jump out. She pulled Qian Wanyu’s hand and whispered, “Seventh sister, did you hear that? It seems that someone is talking.”
No no, not someone talking, but singing!
Qian Wanyu listened carefully and heard the whistling wind. They stood at the wind vent and listened. It was indeed a hoarse singing, the voice sounded like a Beast Person. She carefully distinguished, and after a long time, she murmured, “It’s a battle song.”
The war songs of the Beast People were very bold and arrogant. Just like their people, they will sing it loudly and feel passionate and enthusiastic. Soon, Qian Wanyu felt that her spiritual power was running wildly, she felt that she was about to lose control of it due to the singing! She was stunned for a moment and her face turned serious, “This song actually has the power to inspire spiritual power!”
Little Minghui immediately took out two pills from her space ring, “Seventh sister, take one.”
When she was refining the pills for Qian Ziyan, she had a lot of materials, so she made a few more bottles of the pill. She didn’t expect it to be really useful in this place. They both breathed a sigh of relief at the same time.
“Follow the song, maybe we’ll find someone.” The two turned three corners, and there were countless corpses piled up on each corner. They walked and finally came to an empty secret room, the singing became louder and louder. The louder it became the more it turned into a piercing magic sound, chains moved alongside as if to accompany the singing, with a hint of desolation.
The secret room was blocked by a wall, and the singing came from behind the wall.
Qian Wanyu made her take a few steps back, after retreating to a safe position, she pulled out the thunder whip. She threw out a bolt of lightning and blasted a hole into the wall with devastating spiritual power.
The singing stopped, and everything seemed to stand still.
Dongfang Minghui squatted down, she was already short so she couldn’t clearly see the scene behind the wall. She stretched her neck, raised her head slightly, looked up, and met a pair of pale eyes, “Ah!”
