“Ah, so comfortable.”
For medicinal plants such as Love flower and Lucky, they like places with abundant vitality in life energy. Even the man-eating grass and pig fairy grass jumped out of the space ring one after another. Since arriving at the elves, they couldn’t sit still.
The vines of the tree of life were everywhere. This centuries old or even older tree has already penetrated into every inch of the land of the elves. Like a great mother, it has brought strong vitality to the people here.
Love flower and Lucky, found a place that they thought was a good place to take root. On the other side, the pig fairy grass was always on guard against the man eating grass just because of its previous record. The two medicinal plants also searched for a place one after the other to settle under the tree of life.
Little Colour in the sea of souls swayed left and right, secretly protruding a vine, and also followed in their footsteps rolling out of the sea of souls.
“Hey, let’s go out too, this old tree is a bit silly, let’s see if he’s willing to let us borrow its life force.”
The little bean sprout jumped out of the space with a bulky Tianyin helmet. When it came out, the Tianyin helmet was cumbersome and almost fell, but the vines of the tree of life helped it up and straightened it. Then spoke to it directly.
“Little guy, do I look stupid?”
The little bean sprout who was caught speaking ill of people: “…” What can it do now? It would look even more stupid.
Dongfang Minghui woke up from a dream, Little Colour body in the soul sea has undergone earth-shaking changes. The small sapling has become a big tree, and the vines were swaying with the branches, looking full of vitality, “Little Colour, you seem to have grown up?”
This tree of life is still very good, regardless of how it borrowed the strong vitality around it to upgrade, at least it successfully met its expectations for itself.
Dongfang Minghui was trapped in her own world. She couldn’t feel the changes in the outside world. The first thing she saw were her little friends. Then she found that in the space ring, apart from the black medicine plant who was imprisoned and Toothless who was dormant the other medicinal plants disappeared.
“During my cultivation did Entangled Love get stolen?!”
“Look at the outside world.”
Under the tree of life, Dongfang Minghui suddenly opened her eyes, about a meter away from her, Love Flower, Lucky, the man eating grass and pig fairy grass, including the naughty little bean sprouts in the Tianyin helmet have all grown vigorously.
Love Flower has bloomed new flowers, and the bright red blooming flowers added a bit of color to this emerald green land making it look very beautiful.
“Love Flower, are you ready to bloom and bear fruit?”
Love Flower said that it would take a hundred years for it to bloom and bear fruit. Dongfang Minghui hurriedly pinched herself. She must have slept for a long time this time, would she have slept for a hundred years?! Immediately, her face turned pale.
Love Flower pretended to be invisible, and a seed rolled up in the flower and leaves as it handed it to Dongfang Minghui, “Thank you for bringing us to this place, I have discussed with the tree of life, I want to stay here for a while, I hope you can let me succeed in bearing new fruit.”
Love Flower had been staying in Death Valley, feeding on the aura of death in Death Valley, of course, this aura of death and blood that seemed unbearable to the outside world was just nutrition to Love Flower that could resist the aura of death.
It had thought that it would never bloom again, nor bear fruit. Unexpectedly, in this elf land, it had found an opportunity again!
The leaf that was unwilling to take out a seed before slowly loosened on Dongfang Minghui’s palm, but Dongfang Minghui was stunned on the spot, it took a long time to realize that Love Flower was leaving her.
Love Flower didn’t say anything. After Love Flower, Lucky also chose to stay next to Love Flower. The two medicinal plants touched gently with their leaves under Dongfang Minghui’s eyes, which looked very intimate.
“I’m tired of this place, I want to continue to follow you.”
Dongfang Minghui looked surprised. She glanced around and other medicinal plants jumped up one after another. Even the little bean sprouts was about as tall as the palms of an adult, but the pig fairy grass did not seem to have changed at all.
She gently touched the leaves of the pig fairy grass, and the pig fairy grass directly curled and its leaves and slapped her fingers.
The man eating grass of course didn’t dare to resist and obediently followed the pig fairy grass to return to her space. The little bean sprouts also jumped three times, and the bottom of the Tianyin helmet was slightly round again. Like a tumbler, it swayed left and right, causing people to break into a cold sweat thinking it would topple on itself.
“You can’t forget us too!”
Dongfang Minghui looked at the little bean sprout swaying, she was afraid that the little bean sprout would break into two parts, because the two buds of the bean sprouts were heavier than its body, “Don’t worry little bean sprouts, I won’t leave you here.”
The little bean sprouts swooped into her space ring. The red and yellow flower buds on the bean sprouts became splendid colours. The red flower buds had already bloomed with brilliant flowers, but the flowers and the ghost face tree spirit’s appearance seemed to be somewhat different. As for the other small yellow bud, it was a little fuller than the shriveled appearance from before, but it was not yet ready to bloom.
“The stupid one is you.”
“Are you a pig?
“You’re the pig.”
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes swept back and forth on the yellow buds and red flowers of the bean sprouts. Listening to their boring conversations, she finally sorted out some ideas, but she still didn’t understand, she clearly planted only one seed, how could there be two flowers of different colors?
The two flower buds quarreled to the point where they were about to fight. No, in fact, they had already started. The yellow flower bud attacked the red flower with force, relying on the fact that it had not yet bloomed. The two were aggressive, and so a civil war began.
“Both of you shut up.”
Dongfang Minghui’s forehead blushed violently. She felt that something important had been ignored by her. She took the Tianyin helmet out of the space ring again, and poked her finger at the yellow flower bud, who was acting a little arrogant and domineering before, “Are you the little bean sprouts? “Then she pointed to the red flower that bloomed, “Or are you the little bean sprout?”
According to the explanation of the three old trees before, it is difficult for the buds of the ghost-faced tree spirits to bloom and bear fruit. As for the ghost-faced tree spirits, it would take hundreds of years to grow a spiritual intelligence.
The two flowers shivered a bit, and they were both obediently silent, pretending to be dead.
“Please explain to me, there must be only be one bean sprout, what’s the matter with you?”
“No, I’m little bean sprout!” The two flower buds said in unison, with a hint of urgency in their tender voices.
Dongfang Minghui was also confused by them. Thinking back carefully, the little bean sprouts did indeed only have a single bud, the size of a thumb but then a second bud rushed out.
“It’s a case of one body and two souls.”
Little Colour couldn’t bear to see its little friend making a fool of herself, and reminded, “In the gold-loving rat cave, the Tianyin helmet was refined by the fire of the soul refining furnace. An accident probably happened at that time.”
“Huh?” After listening to Little Colour’s speculation and explanation, Dongfang Minghui couldn’t believe it, “You mean, there’s a gold rat’s soul in little bean sprout’s body?!”
“You should ask your Seventh sister this question.”
As soon as Qian Wanyu was mentioned, Dongfang Minghui instantly remembered where she was. The leaves of the tree of life rustled as if to greet her.
The spiritual power in her body has reached a full state, and the mark sealed by Little Colour in her body had loosened a little. She checked the spiritual power in her body. She had soared past Spiritual Scholar all the way up to Level 1 Spiritual King!
Before Dongfang Minghui could ask her how long she was in here, she heard a familiar call.
As soon as she woke up, the elves guarding the tree of life flew to report to Her Majesty the Queen. Qian Wanyu also knew, and rushed over. When she saw the person as if caressing a child, she walked over and stretched out her hands to take the person in her arms.
“Seventh sister, how long have I been in retreat?”
“More than a month.”
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief when she heard the number, “I thought it had been a hundred years!”
“A hundred years?” Qian Wanyu laughed, holding her even more tightly, “Sister Ninth is really greedy, do you want me to wait for you for a hundred years?”
“Ha, I didn’t say that!”
A hundred years, how lonely it would be if she had to wait!
Her Majesty the Queen was standing at a distance and watching them silently, feeling that they seem to have a lot to say, she simply left the space for them, turned to leave, and the group followed her into the holy spring, “I’ll go see Xing’er, you all guard outside.”
In the past month, a lot of things have happened in the elves. For the first time in a hundred years, the group of elves felt a little nervous and worried due to not knowing about the Queen’s situation. But under Qian Wanyu and Her Majesty the Queen, the turmoil quickly disappeared, and it was peace as always, the elves still lived a life of carefree happiness from sunrise to sunset.
The holy spring was the guardian spring of the elves. It existed along with the tree of life and was full of dense spring water. When Her Majesty the Queen walked in, she paused to get used to it, and when the fog gradually dissipated, she walked towards a familiar position step by step.
The holy spring was very large, and the water in it was still bubbling, there was constant replenishment for the spring from the bottom of the pool.
Legend has it that the holy water of the spring had the effect of resurrecting the dead. Therefore, the holy spring was a forbidden place for the elves, and ordinary people were not allowed to enter.
In a corner of the holy spring, there was a thick ice bed, and a figure laid atop the ice bed.
“Son, your two friends are very enthusiastic, I heard the tenth elder say that you gave them a jade card, you found a friend in the human race, as your Queen mother I am really happy for you.”
The fog on the ice bed was thicker than when she first came in. The person lying down couldn’t respond to her words, but the corners of his mouth were raised, with a faint smile of satisfaction, his hands were folded and placed on his abdomen, as if simply asleep.
“Do you like the girl named Minghui?”
Her Majesty the Queen said with a smile, “The Tree of Life also likes her very much. Her aura is very kind and familiar…”
The two embraced each other quietly. After a while, Dongfang Minghui suddenly pushed her away and said with a serious face, “Seventh sister, where is Lu Xing?”
When it came to Lu Xing, the topic turned heavy.
Especially the calm expression on Qian Wanyu’s face made Dongfang Minghui’s whole heart lift up, “Lu Xing is in the holy spring.”
As soon as she heard that he was in the holy spring, all Dongfang Minghui could think of was that the other party had fully recovered. He told her that he had went to the holy spring to fetch holy water and water the medicinal plants before. Lu Xing had told her that the medicinal plants of the elves were almost all watered by the water in the holy spring, “Her Majesty the Queen healed him? Then Seventh sister, let’s go see him now!”
Qian Wanyu followed her passively, looking at the hand holding her before she stopped walking, then stood still, letting the person leading the way in front not able to pull her as she stood firmly like a mountain.
“Seventh sister, why aren’t you moving?”
“Ninth Sister.” The last thing Qian Wanyu wanted was to see a look of disappointment or even despair on this small face, but some things have to be said sooner or later, “Before you go see Lu Xing, you must be mentally prepared.”
Dongfang Minghui’s heart skip a beat, “What kind of mental preparation? Is Lu Xing okay?”
Qian Wanyu had a sullen face and was organizing her thoughts, trying to think of which answer would make the other person feel better. In fact, even for the Queen of the elves, there was only helplessness in the face of life and death.
She witnessed Her Majesty the Queen weeping with her own eyes. She wanted to be a mother, and she didn’t want to see her closest person disappear like this, so she thought of another way, hoping to take advantage of the tree of life and the vitality of the holy spring to let him gradually get better.
However, this approach was also the equivalent of confirmed Lu Xing’s coming death… As it meant she had no other idea to cure him.
“Is there nothing her majesty can do?!”
“If there’s nothing she can do, who else can save Lu Xing?!”
Qian Wanyu looked at the other party’s lost soul, and felt a little heartbroken, “He agreed to this method.”
“He is very happy to know that he has returned to the elves.”
After the joy was over, that last breath of Lu Xing was exhausted. Her Majesty the Queen spent a lot of effort to put him in such a place where the power of life gathered, hoping to see him safely recovered in a few years.
Dongfang Minghui covered her mouth in surprise and couldn’t believe it.
Qian Wanyu took her into her arms again, stroking her back to comfort, “You have to believe that he will wake up again, if he knows that you feel guilty about him, he will definitely not sleep well. So, don’t do this to yourself anymore.” She couldn’t help but feel distressed when she looked at her like this.
When Her Majesty the Queen saw Dongfang Minghui, she found that this lovely human had red eyes, as if she had secretly cried, she felt consolation in her heart, and couldn’t help but sent out an invitation, “Would you like to come and have a look?”
After she finished speaking, she felt some regret. In fact the Holy Spring was a forbidden place, even the elves rarely set foot inside, let alone outsiders.
However, seeing Dongfang Minghui, Her Majesty the Queen felt a sense of intimacy. This feeling made her feel very close with her for some reason, and she couldn’t help but become intimate with her.
Dongfang Minghui asked cautiously, “Is it okay?”
“You are Xing’er’s friends, and you are also friends of the elves, of course it’s okay.” She would only make this one exception.
Qian Wanyu was a little surprised. A month ago, the day when Lu Xing woke up, she also mentioned that she wanted to see Lu Xing but when she walked to the Holy Spring, she was stopped by the elves.
This would also be her first time stepping inside the Holy Spring.
Following in the footsteps of Her Majesty the Queen, Qian Wanyu felt that the water in the holy spring kept bubbling and gurgling, even the water surface became extremely unsteady. She stopped for a moment and stood quietly on the edge of the holy spring to watch.
This caught the attention of Dongfang Minghui, and the Queen, who was leading the way, also stopped.
“Seventh sister, what’s wrong with you?”
“It’s nothing.” Dongfang Minghui raised her brows slightly, there seemed to be something under the holy spring.
The two saw Lu Xing lying on the ice bed from a distance, and before they got close, they felt the extreme coldness coming out of it. The two of them were frozen by the sudden chill.
“This is a cold jade bed, the material is the same as the material from the cold jade coffin.” Qing Mo said again, “It seems that Her Majesty the Queen has worked hard to make Lu Xing better.”
Whether it’s the cold jade coffin or cold jade bed, these were both for people who were dying or close to dying.
“Lu Xing!” Dongfang Minghui found that the brocade box that Lu Xing was holding in his arms was missing, and immediately asked, “Your Majesty, did you put away the brocade box that Lu Xing was holding before?”
“Yes.” Her Majesty the Queen looked at Dongfang Minghui calmly, wanting to see something from the other’s face, and then asked tentatively, “When I took back the brocade box, I found that some of the stumps in the brocade box were missing. Does Minghui know where this other part has gone?”
“This—” Dongfang Minghui couldn’t imagine what would happen if the Queen knew that the stump was bitten off by Wei Junlan and used to heal the wounds of the elder before… she hesitated, “I accidentally bit it off.”
“Huh?” Her Majesty the Queen saw that she was hesitant just now, obviously there was an inside story, so she just continued to listen, “Ms. Minghui you should know that that was a piece of essence taken from the Tree of Life?”
“I know, but at that time, the stump of the tree of life had lost its vitality, and it was just like an ordinary stump. I also wanted to save people so I made that decision. I hope Your Majesty the Queen will forgive me…”
Harming the tree of life was a mortal sin to the elves.
If Dongfang Minghui knew about such a rule, she probably wouldn’t take this matter on herself.
Her Majesty the Queen was stunned, and her voice couldn’t help raising a few decibels, “Ms. Minghui you just said that the Tree of Life has lost its power of life? Is this true?!”
Dongfang Minghui was still thinking about whether she had said something she shouldn’t have said. When asked, she just nodded.
Qian Wanyu frowned and couldn’t help reminding her, “Didn’t you come here to see Lu Xing?”
Dongfang Minghui was stunned, and quickly stepped forward. Lu Xing body was laying on the bed, almost the same as the last time he saw him, the only thing that changed was the satisfied smile on his face, “Lu Xing, I will definitely find a way to save you.”
Staying next to the bed for less than an hour, Dongfang Minghui shivered all over, and finally Qian Wanyu couldn’t take it anymore, she grabbed her tightly and dragged her out of the holy spring.
“The cold jade bed comes from the extreme north, even spiritual power can’t resist it, let alone you, even me and Her Majesty the Queen can’t stay for long.” Qian Wanyu put her hand in her own, covering it then felt that the temperature of her hands was extremely cold, so she simply put both small hands on her chest and covered them to warm them a little.
Dongfang Minghui was feeling so cold that she was about to lose consciousness, but there was a warm current flowing from her heart, which made her feel warm, “Seventh sister, I’ll cover yours too.”
Aw Lu Xing 🙁
