Wei Junlan rolled her eyes, “No, it’s angry.”
“What would I be lying to you for?” This spiritual pet she has had a bigger temper than a human. It always pointed its little butt at her and refuses to communicate with her so she hit it three more times.
Now, Lulu hasn’t shown up for several days.
Dongfang Minghui was stunned for a moment, and then laughed unkindly. She thought Toothless was difficult to raise before, but now that she thought about it, at least this little guy would help you dig for treasure. It often acted like a spoiled child from time to time but it was much better than Lulu.
“Spiritual beasts also have emotions, so don’t get too angry at it. If it doesn’t listen to you in the future, you’ll cry.”
“It’s too much trouble.”
At first, she thought having a pet was amusing and interesting, but after this enthusiasm passed, she found that there were troubles everywhere.
Raising a spirit beast was like raising a child. You have to take care of everything from food, clothing, housing and transportation. Wei Junlan used to take her younger brother everywhere, but a younger brother and a spirit beast were different.
“You can raise it like your younger brother.” Dongfang Minghui suggested. In fact she didn’t know how to raise Toothless at the time. At first, she thought of how she would raise a dog… Toothless would shake its head and tail then drown her in saliva when it was happy just like a dog after all…
But later, she gradually raised Toothless as a child and wanted to teach it to recognize medicinal herbs, learn to read, and also speak. Of course, she also hoped that one day it can transform into a human form.
“Human form?” Wei Junlan thought she was whimsical, “Do you know how good of a chance it would be for a spirit beast to transform into a human form?”
“I don’t know.” Dongfang Minghui said frankly, with Seventh sister, there were always more good opportunities than usual, what’s more, the opportunity that should belong to Toothless will be given to Toothless, “Don’t dampen our enthusiasm, maybe Toothless will become the ruler of a race at the end~”
“Hah I think you’re full of it.”
The two people raising spirit beasts ran into the major issue of spirit beasts’ disillusionment. In the end, because of a disagreement, they kept tossing sarcasm at each other, and they were about to fight.
Qian Wanyu woke up from her practice and stared at the two of them with interest.
Dongfang Minghui and Wei Junlan felt themselves being stared at for a long time, and then felt that they were making a big fuss so they quickly shut up.
“Since it’s boring, I’ll find something fun for you.” Qian Wanyu did not wait for the two to refuse, and let Little White out to chase and bite Wei Junlan’s ass.
“You’re ganging up one me!”
Little White would ignore Dongfang Minghui’s hand, but it was really chasing after Wei Junlan!
Wei Junlan ran away, and Little White chased after her like a gust of wind, roaring constantly, to a certain extent, it was quite a funny scene.
“Seventh sister, this is not a good idea.” Dongfang Minghui saw two shadows, Little White was trying its best to catch up while Wei Junlan was running away desperately, she was a Wind Spiritual Master so she had good control over wind and her speed was fast.
“Her promotion is too fast, all because the blood in her body that does not belong to her is at work.” This is not conducive to her future practice. Qian Wanyu intentionally let Wei Junlan gain experience many times along the way to let her lay a solid foundation.
“Seventh sister, once the elf issue is resolved, we need to go directly to the merpeople.” The pills from priest Larkin will soon be gone. Dongfang Minghui had studied the blood in Wei Junlan’s body, and found that most of her blood was biased towards the blue tinge, that is to say, the blood of the merpeople has a greater influence on her body, almost occupying a dominant position.
Wei Junlan was really unable to run. She felt a movement in her soul sea followed by Little Lulu running out of the soul sea like a small cannonball, hitting Little White with its forelegs. It fiddled with it twice like a ball before running towards Wei Junlan again.
“Fuck, Qian Wanyu, what kind of hatred do I have with you?!”
“Nothing really.” Qian Wanyu replied solemnly.
There was a lot of commotion here, but Dongfang Minghui heard the sound of rustling in the grass again. She followed the sound to find it, thinking that she had heard it wrong, but she saw Xiao Cai pushed through the grass and popping out a head.
Xiao Cai got up from the grass, his clothes were stained with a lot of grass debris, and some stained his head. He patted a few times, those blue and beautiful eyes stared at her nervously, and he delivered the package in his hand to her.
Dongfang Minghui opened the package uncertainly, and saw a neatly folded piece of clothing. The fabric was the same as before, but the workmanship was more refined. Even the stitching was repaired with a little pattern. The stitching and mending lines combined like a graceful and uneven figure, it would be impossible to tell that this was a repaired garment unless someone looked closely.
“Seventh sister, look!”
Qian Wanyu nodded with satisfaction, “Very good.”
It’s a little more beautiful than the previous dress, adding a touch of mysterious beauty.
“I think so too.” Dongfang Minghui was delighted, but looking at this dress and her height, she suddenly remembered that she might not have the chance to wear this dress again… so she thought of just keeping it as a souvenir.
“Since he has repaired your clothes, you should also give him the white silk he needs,” Qian Wanyu reminded.
Xiao Cai was very excited. Although it was a child’s clothes, the damage to the clothes was so great that many cloth strips could not be restored. He begged others to work on it together, and finally managed to repair it after two days and three nights in a row. He also changed some places in private for the sake of beauty but feared that the other party would not be satisfied.
“Yes, yes I forgot about it as soon as I got excited.” Dongfang Minghui folded the clothes, and when she saw the pattern created by the white silk thread, she was curious, “You said before that you need to repair the clothes with white silk but you have it as well? Why do you still insist on having mine?”
Xiao Cai looked embarrassed, he hesitated, and asked in a low voice, “Is it possible that you won’t give me white silk if I don’t tell you the reason?”
“It doesn’t matter if you don’t say it, I’m just curious.” Dongfang Minghui called out the Man Eater plant, the Man Eater plant was a little embarrassed, it hadn’t eaten anything aside from the spirit liquid for a long time, and the spiritual liquid was not enough to fill its stomach…
The Pig Fairy Grass was acting as its supervisor, and its tail was fastened to the other’s.
“They’re so cute!” As soon as Xiao Cai saw the Man Eater grass and the pig fairy grass, his eyes shone brightly. The elves have always been close to nature, and they were very friendly to these plants that have gained wisdom. Courageously, he even reached out to touch the Man Eater plant.
“Don’t touch it!” Dongfang Minghui reprimanded in a low voice, and then felt that she was making a fuss, so she slowed down, “It doesn’t like the smell of strangers very much, when a stranger touches it, it will attack.”
Xiao Cai was startled, he quickly retracted his outstretched hand, and said, “That’s very strange…”
She nodded lightly in agreement. The medicinal plants around her were all very strong minded and more assertive than her, she didn’t know whether it was good or bad. She placed Lu Xing lightly on the ground, and then said to the Man Eater plant, “Suck this white thread away.”
The Man Eater plant opened its mouth obediently, and after a while, it sucked the white silk back, revealing Lu Xing in the cocoon. Lu Xing was lying on the ground with a brocade box on his chest, and his hands naturally hugged it. There was a smile on the corner of his mouth, as if he was experiencing an unforgettable dream.
Wei Junlan almost didn’t recognize that the person in front of him was Lu Xing!
His previously beautiful long black hair was replaced by white, and the skin on his face seemed to be in his twilight years, his face was drooping and it seemed as though there was no vitality at all. It was very different from the elf with smart eyes in front of them. Dongfang Minghui crouched down and felt the stump of the tree of life in the brocade box then carefully arranged his hair that was about to wither.
“Lu Xing, you can go home soon…”
Xiao Cai’s eyes widened, he never thought that there would actually be a person lying in the cocoon, also the person looked like an old man in his twilight years. He swallowed and couldn’t help but step back, but Qian Wanyu blocked his way and forced him to continue watching.
“Xiao Cai, how much white silk do you need?”
“Ah?” Xiaocai was slightly stunned, and it took a long time to regain his sanity, “I only need a short roll…”
He gestured for the length, and according to his request, the Man Eater plant spit out new white silk again, just a small piece. After that, it was pulled back into the space ring by the pig fairy grass. Xiao Cai watched two smart plants emerge out of thin air and then disappear into thin air. He felt that today he had opened his eyes and couldn’t help but admire Dongfang Minghui.
“Are they all plants you called out to help?”
“Yes.” Dongfang Minghui looked at the piece of white silk in his hand, which was shorter than the fairy boy’s body tied on her wrist, it showed that Xiao Cai was not greedy, “Xiao Cai, I have a very important question I want to ask you.”
“What is it?” Xiao Cai was very satisfied when he got what he dreamed of, his yes curled up in happiness.
“I heard from a friend that you can find the elves here.” Dongfang Minghui kept staring at the other party’s eyes when she said this. She saw Xiao Cai’s blue pupils tightened, and then asked word by word, “Do you know where the elves live?”
Xiao Cai hurriedly shook his head, “I don’t know.”
“I have a friend who is from your elf tribe, and he said he wants me to take him home.”
“I don’t know what elves are!” Xiao Cai stepped back after saying that, “I’ve been out for too long, I have to leave.”
Qian Wanyu stepped forward and stopped the other party, “She hasn’t finished speaking, you can’t leave for the time being.”
Dongfang Minghui smiled and pulled Xiao Cai to face Lu Xing, “Look, his long hair was dragging on the ground before and he had a pair of beautiful wings, he is seriously injured now, and he needs to be rescued by the tree of life of the elves. Can you help him?”
Xiao Cai was about to die of fright when he got stopped but when he heard that the old man in front of him was actually an elf, Xiao Cai tried his best to open his eyes, trying to see this person clearly, “What’s wrong with him?”
“He burned his life force, and there is not much time left…”
Xiao Cai didn’t understand very well. He was still a child and wasn’t sure how to judge the situation. He held the white silk in his hand tightly and lowered his head, “The land of elves is not for outsiders to enter, you should leave quickly.”
“No, he has to go back to the elves!”
“He…” Xiao Cai couldn’t tell if the other party was an elf, he had never seen such an old elf and he couldn’t make up his mind for a while.
“He’s the little prince of your elves. You can ask someone from your clan to come to us.” Qian Wanyu was still worried about handing over the jade token to Xiao Cai, who looked too simple and childish, “We’ll wait for you here, two days at most.”
If it really didn’t work, she would use her own method to forcefully break into the elves’ forest.
Xiao Cai had a bitter face, he just wanted to trade a white silk thread…
After he left, Dongfang Minghui let the Man Eater plant spit out white silk and wrap Lu Xing as a cocoon again, “Seventh sister, will they come?”
“The elves are pure in nature. When they hear that there are clansmen left behind, they will definitely send someone to investigate.” Qian Wanyu was actually also unsure. Hundreds of years ago, the elves were indeed pure and kind. However after hundreds of years, she didn’t know how many elves still retained their original nature.
“For the time being, we’ll take one step at a time.” Wei Junlan didn’t hold much hope for Xiao Cai, she felt that the matter was not so simple. She held Little Lulu in her arms and pounded it upside down. She was defeated by Lulu running out to take risks and confronting Little White. Facts have proved that the little things was still her pet and came to her side at a critical moment.
Dongfang Minghui felt very worried, Lu Xing’s situation was so bad, why couldn’t she even bring him home?
“Don’t worry, they will definitely come back.”
On the first night of their tossing and turning, Qian Wanyu felt a wind blowing towards them. Before she could sense it, she felt that his brain was chaotic, and she lost consciousness.
The voice seemed to be a call from afar, and Qian Wanyu almost struggled to wake up immediately.
As soon as Qian Wanyu woke up, she felt that her hands were being restrained. The more she struggled, the tighter the restraint became, “What is this?”
“It’s a binding vine, Sister Seventh, don’t struggle, it will slowly loosen.”
In the darkness, no one could see and they could only tell the location of everyone from the source of the sound. Qian Wanyu closed her eyes a little, then opened them again, the surrounding environment was still dark and she couldn’t see anything.
“Seventh sister, we are now in the land of the elves.”
From the other party’s voice, Qian Wanyu could hear a hint of joy, and the bad mood when she woke up seemed to have dissipated a bit. After she relaxed her whole body, the things behind her that bound her hands really relaxed a bit.
“You’ve been in a coma for two hours.” Qing Mo kindly informed her, “It’s a tree of the elves that is particularly good at releasing smoke, you inhaled too much smoke unknowingly which made them have opportunity.”
“In a coma?”
Qian Wanyu found this unbelievable. She had always been wary of the wind, but she indeed overlooked one point. The elves have always been close to nature so they could easily take advantage of the surrounding plants, “What is this place?”
“It should be regarded as a big tree.” Qing Mo didn’t know much about the trees in the elf clan. Before he knew Dongfang Minghui, he always felt that the Spiritual Master of the wood type were a bunch of weaklings so he never bothered learning about them. He looked at the group of elves. He also felt strange about why the people of the elf clan imprisoned them inside the big tree.
Dongfang Minghui scrutinized her for a while, and quickly untied the vines behind her then walked in the direction of Qian Wanyu. She first saw Seventh sister in a coma, and Wei Junlan lost consciousness afterward. She also pretended to be in a coma and was brought in by the elves. She even heard Xiao Cai’s begging along the way.
However it was useless for Xiao Cai to plead for mercy. The three of them were thrown into the tree hole together. She never thought that the place where the elves used to imprison people was actually a tree hole, but the tree hole was very warm and she didn’t feel cold even after staying here for two hours.
She wet a bit of her lips before she said that the restraining vine would loosen her bondage, “Seventh sister, relax your hands.”
“Where’s Wei Junlan?”
“She’s still in a coma.” She shouted for almost an hour so her voice was hoarse, but she still couldn’t wake the other party up, “Lu Xing was taken away by them.”
“They will come to us soon.”
It was useless to take Lu Xing away. The white silk binding Lu Xing was invulnerable to weapons, water and fire, it would be difficult for anyone to cut it off easily.
As Qian Wanyu expected, the group of people who had taken Lu Xing away had run into trouble with the white silk. Soon enough there was movement outside.
“Seventh sister, someone is here.”
When the first person climbed into the tree hole, Qian Wanyu hooked the other person’s neck with her whip, “Don’t move, or your neck and head will be separated.”
“I-I won’t move.”
“Go in, why don’t you go in?” The people behind urged, only to see that the first person was strangled and stepped out of the tree hole. The group of them immediately formed a circle. There were people pulling bows and arrows in the trees.
Qian Wanyu chuckled softly, “Let both of them come down from the tree, otherwise we will see who’s faster.” She squeezed hard, and the man felt that he was out of breath.
The group of elves were a little flustered at first sight. They stepped back step by step and hurriedly compromised, “Okay, don’t hurt anyone.”
The two elves on the tree also had to jump down from the tree, and the bows and arrows in their hands were still aimed at Qian Wanyu.
Dongfang Minghui followed closely, supported Wei Junlan, and jumped out of the tree hole. She patted Wei Junlan on the face, “Wake up, wake up.”
When she got out of the tree hole, she could see the whole picture of where they were. A thick tree stump on each side, like two guardian angels, blocked the only way. On the other side, they turned around and there was an open road. The trees on both sides of the road were still green and verdant, there seemed to be absolutely no sign of the cold of winter and the place felt like spring.
“You there, lead the way.”
