“Hooho——” After fighting all night, Little White was happy to be out. The sticky feeling that couldn’t be shaken in the formation completely disappeared. It was the first one was to roar towards the sky just like sending a message.
After that, he desperately shook the white fluffy fur on his body.
“Yu’er.” Qian Yiling thought that since the two of them fought side by side once it could at least bring the relationship between mother and daughter closer. Who knew that as soon as they came out of the formation, the sense of alienation from the other side was revealed.
Qian Wanyu patted Little White’s head with a heavy heart, and the hair on Little White’s body almost stood up.
This embarrassment was resolved quietly when Toothless rushed in front of them with Little Minghui behind.
Little Minghui’s eyes were full of her Seventh sister. She glanced at Qian Yiling who was standing beside her. There was nothing on Qian Yiling’s face. The other person’s face was slightly more mature than when she saw it in the past mirror. However, as expected of Qian Wanyu’s mother, the years have left nothing on her, it was only the mark on her cheek that ruined her whole beauty.
When she got off Toothless, she paused for a while, and quickly threw herself into Qian Wanyu’s arms, hugging her tightly, she felt sorry for Seventh sister. Sure enough, Seventh sister knew everything, but she didn’t care at all.
“Seventh sister, you scared me to death, do you know that?”
“I know, sorry.”
Qian Wanyu buried her whole face in the little guy’s neck, and took a deep breath of the herbal scent from the other person’s body. The familiar smell calmed her down. She took Little Minghui in her arms and turned around and said, “The sky is dark and it’s getting late, you’d better go back to rest early.”
Qian Yiling could feel the Wanyu’s resistance to her. She glanced at the Little Minghui who was hugged tightly by her daughter, nodded, turning around and disappeared into the darkness.
It wasn’t until the person was gone that Little Minghui shrugged and apologized in a low voice, “I’m sorry.”
Dongfang Minghui also breathed a sigh of relief. Qian Mama and Seventh sister faced each other directly at least… that was better than hiding. She grabbed Qian Wanyu’s clothes and said softly, “Seventh sister, don’t be angry with me, okay?”
She got closer and smelled a strong bloody smell, which was choking her nose, “Seventh sister, what happened to you?”
“Well, a group of people set up an ambush and set up a blood formation in order to capture Larkin Shaman.”
“So, Sister Seventh, you got trapped with her by accident?”
Qian Wanyu hummed softly, as an answer.
Little Minghui lay on top of her, holding her tighter than before, wishing she could stick to her arms like this for the rest of her life.
The little guy in her arms was about to choke her to death but Qian Wanyu’s bewildered heart felt like it was soaking in a hot spring, which was warm and made her very comfortable, “Don’t worry, I will handle it.”
Hearing her say so calmly, Little Minghui was even more worried and distressed. She tried to kiss Seventh sister, but as soon as she licked the other’s face, she frowned, “Bah ah ah.”
Qian Wanyu was stunned for a while, then couldn’t help laughing out loud, the bad mood before was swept away, and then she became worried again, “Open your mouth and let me see what went inside, I’m a little dirty so I need to shower.”
Ignoring her protests, Qian Wanyu grabbed her mouth and pried it open, she checked it carefully before she was relieved. Good thing it was still just human blood, she was afraid that the red mud in there was also poisonous.
“Seventh sister, are you all right?”
The other party’s focused gaze was about to melt her heart. Qian Wanyu couldn’t help but reached out and rubbed her head, “Don’t worry, Sister Seventh is not mad at you.”
Dongfang Minghui was not worried about this, “Seventh sister, you said just now that the group of people wanted to capture Larkin Shaman? But he has already escaped!”
Qian Wanyu also wanted to probe the other party’s details after this incident but who knew that the other party was so cunning and had ran away ahead of time.
Dongfang Minghui told her everything that happened before, “We have to get over there to pick up Wei Junlan.”
Thinking of Wei Junlan’s friendship with Xuan Zhu, she felt a little guilty for just abandoning her back there. The only good news was that Wei Junlan’s animalization reaction could be delayed, and she had more time to prolong her life.
When they found the place again, Wei Junlan had swept away the previous embarrassing figure and returned back to her former graceful appearance, as if nothing had happened.
Little Colour’s vines were chasing Leen, and there was wind under Leen’s feet allowing him to escape further. Under the control of the wind, his arrows were essentially a sure hit. Qian Wanyu stared at him for a long time, and finally set her eyes on the cave, “Is this another hiding place for Larkin?”
“It’s likely that Larkin must have done something to cause people to come find him.” Little Minghui said.
Qian Wanyu suddenly remembered that when Xuan Zhu was there, Larkin would always go out at night, she didn’t know where he went. Plus the other party could easily cure the that poisonous medicine on Ninth Sister’s body, with all those kinds of clues put together, she always felt like she could almost see through the mysterious fog on this relationship between Larkin and the men in black.
It’s a pity that Larkin left with Xuan Zhu at this time.
“I knew you would be fine, let’s go.”
When the group of them returned to the hut, the sky turned blue again, and a new day began.
Wei Junlan, uncharacteristically, followed behind Dongfang Minghui.
“You, w-what do you want to do?”
“Giving you a little luck to let you live a long life.”
Little Minghui glanced at the other party with contempt. She actually knew that this was just an excuse for Wei Junlan. Xuan Zhu’s departure seemed to be a really big blow to her.
Larkin told her that if she wanted to delay the situation of transforming into a beast, she must find the right medicine to see which two kinds of blood were mixed. Then according to the different blood inside her body she could find the correct answer to detoxify it.
Little Colour also gave her a potion in a porcelain bottle. The potion could temporarily suppress the transformation of Wei Junlan. One potion can delay it for a month. There were about ten potions in the bottle, which meant a maximum delay of almost one year.
“Don’t let me find this old man!”
Before Little Minghui left, she first looked at Qian Mo’s situation.
Qian Mo asked in a low voice while Wei Junlan was going out, “You told the young lady?”
“Aunt Mo, please don’t think of Seventh Sister as dumb, okay?” She was the one who was crushed by Seventh Sister’s IQ and also the one who suffered the most.
“What’s going on?” Qian Mo was a little worried.
“It’s a matter between mother and daughter, it’s best for them to figure it out on their own.”
“Yes, they seem to be solving it… do you want to go take a look?” Wei Junlan actually went out to watch the scenery. Coincidentally, she saw Qian Wanyu and Qian Yiling sitting face to face and seemed as if they were talking about something important.
Little Minghui only struggled for a second before quickly approaching them shamelessly.
“The remuneration has been paid, when will the second half of the transaction information be given?”
“Yu’er.” Qian Yiling actually didn’t agree with them going against the people behind the scenes of the arena. It was too dangerous!
“Lord, I’m talking to you about the transaction.” Qian Wanyu reminded with a serious look.
Seeing the stalemate in the discussion, Little Minghui coughed dryly, “Seventh sister?”
As soon as Qian Wanyu heard the voice of Little Minghui, the rigid expression on her face softened a lot. She stretched out her hand and hugged the person on her lap. At this moment, she needed her Ninth Sister to comfort her.
“My lord, Aunt Mo has woken up. She will be able to walk around by herself in a few days, so you should give us the transaction information right?”
Qian Yiling envied this child a little, because she seemed to be a very special existence to her daughter, she nodded lightly, “Yes, but I hope you all think twice…”
“Don’t worry, we will.” Little Minghui twisted her fingers and motioned Seventh sister to continue.
“Since one transaction has ended, I don’t know if the lord is willing to accept another transaction?”
Qian Yiling really worried that she had no reason to keep her daughter here after the transaction ended. Now, it was good! The opportunity was given to her, “Let’s talk.”
“We want to find a way to find the elves.”
“Elves?” Qian Yiling moved back and forth with her hands rubbing the teacup, all her emotions were covered under the mask.
It was silent for a while, but it made them unable to guess each other’s thoughts.
“Lord?” Little Minghui urged.
Qian Wanyu lowered her head and played with her small hand with her own. She was very patient. She guessed that the other party would agree.
“Sorry, I can’t take this deal.”
“Why?” Qian Wanyu didn’t understand. The other party thought about it for so long, which means she must know the way to the elves, but now she refused? Qian Wanyu narrowed her eyes, but all her emotions were hidden,
“No reason, sorry, I will let Zhilan give you the first transaction information. If it’s all right, please leave first…”
Little Minghui, who was dragged out called hastily, “Seventh sister, my legs are not long enough!”
Qian Wanyu’s tense face also relaxed because of her words, “I’m sorry, I didn’t think about you…”
“Seventh sister, you bullied me for becoming smaller, didn’t you?” Little Minghui pretended to be angry and stuck her waist in a fit of rage.
Qian Wanyu’s heart felt very warm. In order to make herself happy, Ninth Sister always sacrifices her face to embarrass herself. She lightly squeezed the other person’s bulging face, ” I don’t dare, let’s go.”
“My lord, the little shaman said that the captain is in good health. She is leaving today. I have given them the following information according to your instructions.”
“What else did they have to say?”
Qian Yiling stood in the pavilion for a long time, and Zhilan who was behind her called her three times without any response.
Zhilan went back to Qian Mo in a hurry.
Qian Mo walked to the pavilion with difficulty under the support of Zhilan. After Zhilan sent her to the lord, she wisely left. She felt that there was an inseparable intimacy between the captain and the lord and it was impossible in this lifetime to come between them.
“Miss, are you worried about the little lady’s affairs?”
The elves were a very beautiful group. They were beautiful, generous, considerate, and had a pair of very cute wings. Those little angels always made her astonished.
Twenty years ago, she and her eldest brother, Qian Ziyan, broke into the elf clan by accident, and when she left, she and her eldest brother swore a solemn oath that they would never reveal the place where the elf clan lived. The people and things they had seen, including the elves, must be forgotten.
Those who broke their promises would be severely punished by the tree of the elves, with serious consequences.
“Miss, Miss, she suffered a lot in Dongfang’s house, you don’t know when she was…” Qian Mo felt distressed when she talked let alone this genuine mother.
“The oath cannot be broken.” Qian Yiling sighed.
“Is there no other way?”
“Yes.” How could there be no other way to find the elves? But this method can’t be said by her, “But I can’t tell them.”
“If the young lady finds out, she will understand your difficulties.” Qian Mo said with relief.
“I hope she doesn’t understand!” She actually would have preferred if Qian Wanyu was like other people’s children, losing her temper, smashing things and even fighting her to vent her anger and unhappiness so she could act as a mother.
The other party didn’t say a word, turned around and left without saying a word, as if they were strangers.
Perhaps there was nothing in this world more cruel than the current situation.
Qian Mo didn’t know what to do. When she met the young lady, she felt that she was more mature than any child, thoughtful and calm, and all the words that represented strength were perfect for her, “Miss, she just suffered too much. You don’t know that when I found her, she lived alone in a dilapidated house, and I don’t know what happened. She was obviously supposed to be raised by the second lady, but she became a child under Miss Biao and she must have been hating her mother for abandoning her since finding out about you…”
Qian Yiling’s eyes were red. She thought she had given her a safe place to live, but in fact she pushed her daughter into the fire.
Qian Mo said again, “I checked, Mrs. Qin never received your letter back then, and that letter was cut off by Miss Biao, Miss, you should be kinder to Miss, she has suffered in that house since she was a child and was bullied a lot, no one treated her well.”
Qian Yiling squeezed the red bar in the pavilion tightly, and forcibly crushed the red bar made of fine iron.
After Xiao Minghui’s comfort, Qian Wanyu’s mood recovered after she walked out of the guard’s camp.
“Seventh sister, I thought of a way.”
In fact, it’s not a good solution, because this method still required Seventh sister to come forward, “The Yuntian Pavilion also has branches in the beast race. I met one in a small town before. Back then, didn’t the Yuntian Pavilion catch an elf? Back at the auction house…
Qian Wanyu understood that the other party wanted to offer a high price to let Yuntian Pavilion find the elves, the elves could definitely be found wherever they were with that kind of force looking for them.
This was a no-brainer solution.
“It seems that I have to find a way to ask Nangong Yuntian.”
Little Minghui obediently gave Qian Wanyu the name and contact information of the shopkeeper of Yuntian Pavilion, “It just so happens that I still have a poisonous medicine plant in my space ring and I also need to settle accounts with Nangong Yuntian.”
“Sister Ninth, if Yuntian Pavilion supports the Cass tribe, what chance do you think we have?” Qian Wanyu thought further ahead, seeing that some people like Xian and Qing Lan Sect were hiding in the dark among the beast race tribes, the situation would only become more confusing and chaotic.
If they managed to find some backing for the Cass tribe as well, this battle may not be lost.
“Seventh sister, this is a good solution.” Anyway, the wealth of the Nangong family is comparable to that of a country. If a trade exchange between the human race and the beast race is opened, the idea could be profitable for him. “Seventh sister, we can unite the weapons of the dwarves as well!”
The two of you looked at each other and without saying a word it was as if they had already outlined a huge plan. Nangong Yuntian, who was thousands of miles away, kept sneezing and didn’t know who was gossiping about him!
The plan needed to be improved a little more but the two of them could divide the labour and cooperate.
Dongfang Minghui was in charge of handing over a new batch of weapons to Kurt from the dwarves. Since the iron chains they customized contain a formation which increases the difficulty factor and increases the workload it would only be completed after a few months.
Fortunately, the quantity they ordered was not very large, more than a hundred. Her pills to pay for them have also been refined.
“How do you divide these?”
Wei Junlan followed Dongfang Minghui’s ass for three days. Many times the other party was still refining a new batch of pills, like pinching some small dumplings. She watched it for a long time, but couldn’t see anything magical about this process.
She had read a lot of the books on medicine but when she really had to use it, she found it difficult to combine theory with reality.
However, at least it meant reading the books wasn’t fully in vain right…?
“It doesn’t matter.”
Dongfang Minghui said without looking up. She made full use of her advantages. Most medicinal plants would take the initiative to tell her the efficacy of the medicine. She would use the minimum cost to achieve the maximum efficacy, so there was no need to calculate anything at all.
Wei Junlan really managed to hit the nail on its head with a random question and asked, “Why don’t you calculate it somewhere? Could it be that you have mind-reading skills and can read what these herbs are saying?”
The dried medicinal materials were basically useless, but fresh medicinal plants can condense intelligence, which is why she liked to grow medicinal plants.
“Yeah, I can read minds.”
Wei Junlan was even more unconvinced when she saw that she didn’t care. She chased after her butt and kept asking questions. At first, Minghui patiently answered them one by one, but the more the other party asked, the more annoyed she got. In the end, everytime she grabbed a new plant, Wei Junlan will immediately ask about the characteristics of medicinal plants, their living environment, habits and so on.
As a result, her affairs were interrupted again and again, and in the end she went crazy!
“Seventh sister, help meeeee.”
After being questioned for a day, Little Minghui had calluses in her ears and buzzing in her head from the noise. Her mind was full of Wei Junlan’s 100,000 whys! She hugged Seventh Sister’s waist tightly and insisted, “I’m going crazy.”
Qian Wanyu picked her up and glanced at Wei Junlan lightly, “Since Young Master Wei is in a hurry, why don’t I give you a very important task.”
Qian Wanyu reassured her, and took Wei Junlan to a place, “This is what Larkin Shaman left behind, you can help to sort it out, maybe we can find his hiding place soon, and your Xuan Zhu can also be found…”
Larkin didn’t bring anything else with him before he left. She didn’t know if he thought he would come back again, or he left it for them on purpose. He left behind a bunch of messy things, all piled up in the depths of the cave from before.
Qian Wanyu also had an eye for detail and returned to this place again quickly discovering a secret section behind the earth wall deep in the cave.
As soon as Wei Junlan heard this, she immediately rolled up her sleeves and started tidying up.
The most important thing she found was Larkin’s diary, which she got from that secret section before she came to Wei Junlan, “I’ll ask Little Colour and Leen to accompany you.”
“Seventh sister, where did you take Wei Junlan?”
“In the cave before there are some things that Larkin left behind during the treatment. I asked her to sort it out so that she could have more confidence in her own situation.”
Dongfang Minghui nodded, now she can rest assured and can continue to make pills.
Qian Wanyu sat aside and opened Larkin’s notebook. The beginning of the notebook read: Everything started more than fifty years ago…
Aw mother daughter argument 🙁 Hopefully they make up soon~
Thank you to all donators, and supporters. Your support means a lot to me 🙂
