“Hey, here I am!”
Dongfang Minghui shook the branches of the tree, and with the help of Little Colour’s vines, the whole big tree was pulled out in a slight arc. As soon as the vines loosened, the leaves fell down with a rustling sound.
As soon as the tall monster raised its claws, the tree was snapped by its sharp claws.
Dongfang Minghui spread her hands helplessly and ran away, “You guys should run faster.”
Wei Junlan climbed the tree but the leaves kept shaking, and the sound effect was not very obvious. Qian Wanyu tapped with stones on the left, and the sound came from different directions. Dongfang Minghui searched for a thin bamboo-like tree, pulled one end, and used the tree’s elasticity to climb onto the opponent’s forehead.
“Ninth Sister, be careful.”
Dongfang Minghui was frightened when she saw it. She didn’t know how long the beast was, but it had extremely long legs. She raised her head, but she still couldn’t see the whole shape. At most, she could see a hairy belly. Now, she catapulted to the other’s forehead. When she got up, she felt like she was playing bungee jumping on a ten-story building.
The monster’s attention was immediately attracted by Dongfang Minghui, and just after taking a big step, its attention was turned to Wei Junlan, and before it could do anything, it felt as if there was something on its head.
It scratched in the east and scratched in the west, but still couldn’t catch them. After a few times, it immediately became furious.
“Little Colour, it’s all on you!”
Little Colour’s vines had already tied both of its legs to the surrounding trees. With the strength of three people, they still couldn’t pull down the huge monster after pulling for a long time. Dongfang Minghui was lying on its forehead, looking down, she could vaguely see the place where Seventh Sister’s long sword was shining with a cold glint.
This monster was far from that place.
She took off her silk umbrella and shoved it hard on its forehead, exhausting her strength to poke.
The monster’s forehead hurt, and it grabbed its hands fiercely, but accidentally touched the silk umbrella, this touch made it even more painful. Dongfang Minghui kept dodging the big palm back and forth, and when its hand left, she pressed the silk umbrella down again. The pain made this huge monster go crazy, and its claws were waving in the air. It waved and several big trees were crushed by it and flew out, smashing to the ground creating a huge hole. Without their help pulling, the beast ran forward like crazy, the sword that was hidden in front was adjusted by Little Colour’s vines, and it sank its feet straight into it!
It jumped a bit, and the blade under its feet entered even more smoothly. Dongfang Minghui, who was squatting on its forehead, was apprehensive. Due to the height problem, she seemed to see the shadow of the entire Tanu Forest. As far as the eye could see, there were all towering trees, and she even saw fiery red clouds in front of her.
Dongfang Minghui grabbed the silk umbrella tightly and tried to pull it out, but she couldn’t pull it out despite trying for a long time, but she managed to feel the button. This was the button to shoot the hidden weapons of the silk umbrella. She thought of all the hidden weapons hitting inside the head of this monster…
She hardened her heart and pressed it.
Little Colour’s vines followed the surrounding trees, wrapping around her waist. Even so, due to the sudden impact, Little Minghui was shot out like a cannonball. The entire silk umbrella flew out as well.
The beast roared for a long time and finally collapsed, Qian Wanyu and Wei Junlan didn’t get crushed by the beast. Neither of them had time to take a closer look. After Qian Wanyu pulled out the sword forcefully from its foot, she went to look for the trace of her Ninth Sister.
“Follow the vines and see if we can find her.” Wei Junlan pointed to the broken vines under her feet.
Qian Wanyu picked it up quickly, “These vines are useful to her, you can also help pick up as much as you can.”
Dongfang Minghui was thrown on a big tree. Due to her weight, she was currently tied up by Little Colour’s vines and hung upside down on the tree. Below her, she was listening to the creaking sound. She calmed down a little. Only then did she start to look down, and saw a large area of fiery red… moving.
“Little Colour, what is this?”
“I don’t know,” Little Colour said sullenly.
Little Minghui was upside down and felt dizzy, “Little Colour, what’s the matter with you?”
“Don’t you think the temperature here is very hot?”
When they stepped into the Tanu Forest from the ice and snow, the extreme temperature difference made them feel very comfortable and warm. But this place was really hot, she was hung upside down for a while and sweat permeated all over her body. Sweat beads were sliding down her cheeks towards her forehead, and it was about to drip on the ground.
A drop of sweat dripped from a height of several meters made a sizzling sound when it fell to the ground.
The lizards crawling on the ground raised their heads, spitting out their long scarlet tongues, they stared at Dongfang Minghui hanging upside down on the tree, as if they were staring at their own food.
“Why… do I have a not so good feeling.”
Dongfang Minghui, whose scalp was numb from being stared at by these snakes felt her heart pounding and could vaguely hear something approaching.
Little Colour gave a feeble look, “Those things are climbing up the tree…”
The tounges of these poisonous lizards were bright red and colourful, they look very pleasing to the eye but were extremely poisonous and had a natural fire poison. These snakes could only survive in warm areas, and once they left they cannot survive.
Dongfang Minghui opened her eyes wide, and saw the palm-sized poisonous lizards crawling towards her along the vines.
“What is this strange thing?”
The Poisonous Lizard has a long body, a small head, and four claws. It looked like a gecko. It also had the slithering long tongue similar to a snake. Almost as soon as it approached Dongfang Minghui, sharp thorns appeared on Little Colour’s vine branches, forcing it to stop.
Dongfang Minghui looked back at it in horror, sweat dripping into her eyes, she didn’t even dare to blink.
“Are we going down now?”
“Below is their base.” Going down now would be equivalent to entering the tiger’s mouth.
Dongfang Minghui scanned it out of the corner of her eye, “How about we go to another tree and stay out of their sight?”
“On the tree in front of you, there is a tree hole full of them. Under the tree in front of you is a group of yellow sand ants, which are bigger than your thumb. Relatively speaking… The chosen location I’ve chosen is safer.”
Dongfang Minghui’s sweat kept dripping down, hearing the sizzling sounds as it touched the floor, she always imagined the sound of meat when it was roasted on the fire, it sounded so similar. Every time, her sweat dripped down, a few poisonous lizards began to climb up the tree. When a dozen poisonous lizards gathered on a thick branch, the weight carried by the branch changed. When she felt it sinking down, her heart trembled.
“If it goes on like this, are we going to feed these monsters?!”
“What else can you do?”
“Hold on until your Seventh sister comes, she won’t let you die.”
Thinking of Seventh Sister, she deeply felt that she would not be able to live without Seventh Sister, but sometimes it was not good to be too dependent. Dongfang Minghui firmly believed that she had to use her brain sometimes, “We don’t know where Seventh Sister is now, by the time she comes we’ll be food for these lizards!”
The other little friends she had were all very afraid of the high temperature here, and they are almost lifeless, like medicinal plants that have lost their moisture. The only one that has not been affected is Toothless. Toothless looked even more excited than usual, jumping up and down. She had no doubt that Toothless could climb trees at the moment.
“Mother, mother, mother!”
“What’s wrong with Toothless?”
She guessed it might have something to do with the temperature here, so she poured a bottle of cold water on Toothless to try to calm it down.
Toothless was stunned, shook his head, shook the water droplets, and rolled on the ground, “Treasure!”
After she finished speaking, thinking that Toothless likes those shiny things the most, she quickly reacted, “Toothless, you mean there are treasures here?”
“Mother, mother!” Toothless rolled and screamed even more.
Dongfang Minghui pondered for a moment, “Little Colour, send me down a little bit.” There are many branches on this big tree, what she meant was to let Little Colour put her down slowly, when it was about to get close to the tree, Toothless flew out of her space ring and landed steadily on the ground from mid-air.
Those flaming lizards were startled by the sudden appearance of the big object, and they all fled, leaving a piece of empty land, but it also gave Dongfang Minghui a chance to land. She was upside down for a long time, and her legs were almost weak when she landed. Her head also felt really dizzy.
Toothless shot a small flame of flames towards the flaming lizards that bravely crawled forward. The flames devoured them all at once, and all of the other lizards that wanted to come up were stunned by the flames. Toothless looked up proudly and squatted in front of Dongfang Minghui constantly calling out, “Mother mother!”
“Toothless, where do you want to go?” Dongfang Minghui asked, lying on its back.
Naturally, to go find the treasure!
Qian Wanyu dragged Wei Junlan and ran all the way, picking up a lot of vine branches. When she was halfway, she heard Toothless roar, “Quick, this is the direction.”
Little White took the lead but still felt a little unhappy carrying Wei Junlan as well. He was severely reprimanded by Qian Wanyu, and immediately carried her and Wei Junlan to chase after Toothless. Along the way, they encountered strange things in the woods, which took some time to defeat and run from.
Dongfang Minghui felt that she was about to be roasted, even the surrounding air seemed to be filled with heat. However, she was still leaning on Toothless’s furry back which was also heating up.
She had eaten everything in her space ring that could relieve heat, but she couldn’t relieve her irritability at all.
“Ow.” Toothless seemed to indicate that they were almost there.
The soil under Toothless’s feet made a sizzling sound, making her ears tremble.
Little Colour looked like a magic plant that has been short of water for a long time. Sitting in the sea of souls, watching Toothless walk forward in high spirits, “This kid is so persistent, I think it has found its own chance.”
“This place is so hot, there must be something here to attract it. This little thing has awakened the fire element previously. I think it should be something related to the fire element hidden under the heat…”
Little Colour hated fire and Fire Element Spiritual Masters.
Dongfang Minghui thought to herself, so that’s it!
Little Toothless has always wanted to work hard to grow up, and she could feel this, especially when she had seen Little White growing bigger after going into seclusion for a period of time. Toothless refused to see Little White for a long time, feeling depressed, with a lifeless look. Even when it saw Little White, it would get annoyed at Little White immediately acting violent and attacking directly.
Toothless’ cruelty made her feel surprised when she saw it before. Now that she thought about it, it seemed she was too indifferent to Little Toothless and hadn’t know what its true thoughts and feelings were.
Little Minghui stretched out her hand and touched Little Toothless’ ears soothingly, “Little Toothless, come on.”
Toothless walked another distance, and finally reached the destination it was going towards, “Mother, mother!”
Dongfang Minghui opened her eyelids and saw a dense fog, a vast expanse of whiteness. She felt that the humidity in this place was better than before. She was able to finally take a breath. She got off Toothless’s back and was shocked as soon as she touched the ground.
“It’s so hot, so hot!” Dongfang Minghui felt that she was wearing shoes but the soles of her feet were still scalded by the temperature. Thinking of Toothless walking all the way on just its paws, she pointed at it saying, “Raise your paws for me to see.”
Toothless rubbed her affectionately and raised its swollen paws aggrievedly to show her.
Dongfang Minghui touched its front paws with her hand, and could still feel the heat. It hurt a little to see Toothless like this, “Toothless, what are you looking for?”
She found a pill to treat burns from her space ring, and just as she was about to put it on Toothless, she saw Toothless wailing at the steaming pool. The mist above the pool was so thick that her vision was blurred.
“Toothless, you said the treasure is in this pool?”
She tried to get close to the edge of the pool and saw the edge of the white jade pool in front of her. The water in the pool was bubbling, like boiling water. She was anxious and almost tried to pick up some water but Toothless bit down on her clothes.
Toothless dragged her back to where she was standing before it let go, staring at her with pitiful eyes.
Dongfang Minghui sighed, “You’re saying the treasure is underwater but how should we go down to get it?”
The temperature of the water was so hot that it is even hotter than boiling hot water. If they simply went down like this they’d definitely become boiled suckling pigs.
Toothless entered the space ring with a swish, and rummaged through every space. It was like rummaging through boxes. Finally, it took out the treasure it had been looking for in sharp knife mountain. It was two beads. A dark blue bead and a diamond-shaped bright orange colour bead, these two round beads immediately pulled Dongfang Minghui’s memory back to a long time ago.
The two beads were originally taken into the space ring by Seventh Sister. Later, after Seventh Sister absorbed the dark beads, she returned the two beads to her.
She didn’t know what they were so she threw it in the corner of her space ring, and thanks to Little Toothless’s memory, it managed to dig it up from nowhere. Dongfang Minghui touched Toothless’ two ears, “Awesome!”
Toothless stepped on the dark blue bead with its forelegs, rolled around, and then stepped on another bead with its other legs, staring at Dongfang Minghui with aggrieved eyes.
She didn’t understand it at first, until Toothless rolled the two beads in front of her, and took out another limb to make a pointing movement, she had a bold guess, “Toothless you want to know where the third bead went?”
Toothless’ aggrieved little eyes lit up.
Dongfang Minghui stroked its forehead, seems this little guy was quite vindictive. The last time it didn’t give any reaction before, turns out it was waiting until now to express grievances.
“Toothless—” Little Minghui pressed her head against its small head, looking embarrassed, and didn’t know what to say. She couldn’t say that the third bead was used by Seventh Sister… Maybe Toothless would remember Seventh Sister for the rest of its life! But it won’t work if she didn’t explain it, “Hey, Toothless, actually that bead will get hot, and it will burn me, I don’t think it’s very…”
“The third bead was taken by me.” Qian Wanyu’s frank voice suddenly interjected.
