The two warmed each other up, and the Queen, who followed them out, felt strange, and couldn’t help but glance at them, “You—”
“Your Majesty the Queen.”
As soon as Dongfang Minghui lowered her head, she found that she had inserted her hand into Seventh Sister’s arms, and it looked a bit like she was touching something. As for Seventh Sister’s hand, it was in her arms again. Seeing this posture, why did it seem a little…obscene? She laughed dryly, and in a hurry, she took out her hand from the other’s arms, and at the same time took out the other’s hand from her own.
“It was too cold in there just now.”
Qian Wanyu had a cold face, obviously a little unwilling to be disturbed.
After this commotion, both of them felt a lot warmer. They returned to the place before. The tenth elder left beforehand. Wei Junlan was the only one left in the room, and when Dongfang Minghui came back, there was still a little surprise on her face.
“What’s wrong with your face?”
After the two looked at each other, Dongfang Minghui was startled and she touched the scales on Wei Junlan’s cheeks without any hesitation.
The color of the scales on her face has increased, and her eyes were changing colours as well.
“What’s the matter?”
Dongfang Minghui’s whole body felt weak, Qian Wanyu’s cold eyes made Wei Junlan feel like she was sitting on pins and needles, she hurriedly pushed the person who was close to her away, and had a terrible headache trying to explain, “You ask me, who do I ask?”
Wei Junlan didn’t know the source of her change. She hasn’t looked in the mirror for a long time since scales developed on her face. Who would be happy to see these disgusting things on their face?
Dongfang Minghui had a calm face, the more obvious the features on her body, the more it meant that Wei Junlan’s blood was gradually merging with the blood of the merpeople, “How many pills do you have left?”
“Not many, three more…”
Wei Junlan planned to leave if Dongfang Minghui didn’t wake up, she would probably leave without saying goodbye to find the legendary merman.
“Seventh sister, the elves—”
“Ms. Minghui, our queen has extended an invitation.”
Dongfang Minghui was just about to discuss with Qian Wanyu whether they should leave now, but before she could finish, she was interrupted by a beautiful female elf. She was so beautiful that it felt like her whole soul was about to be hooked away.
Qian Wanyu gave the female elf a displeased look and scratched her nose, “What did you say just now.”
“Ugh, Seventh sister, I’ll tell you later when I get back.”
Qian Wanyu watched her follow the beautiful female elf and stood firmly outside the door, as if competing with something.
Wei Junlan couldn’t help laughing, “I didn’t expect the third miss to show jealousy one day, it’s really strange to see.”
On normal days, she wanted to find some clues from the dead face of the other party but it was as hard as ascending to heaven. She didn’t expect a little female elf to cause her to show a little displeasure on her expressionless face, the comparison felt really strange.
Wei Junlan always thought it was Dongfang Minghui the shameless scumbag who was pursuing Qian Wanyu. But the real result seemed to be different from her imagination.
“I don’t know what she’s doing with that female elf. She looks pure and cute, and she has a pair of fluttering wings, which look very charming. Really, I told you before that the people of the elf tribe look really beautiful and moving. They were all born to be stunners, no wonder someone was willing to spend a lot of money just to get a elf.”
During this period of time, when she was bored, she went everywhere to watch the elves. They liked to walk barefoot when no one else was around, and their jade-like skin made people want to touch them twice, of course out of pure appreciation.
“Heh.” Qian Wanyu made a sneer-like laugh.
Wei Junlan’s scalp tightened inexplicably, “What are you laughing at?”
“It’s nothing.” Qian Wanyu didn’t want to laugh. Of course, she didn’t believe what Wei Junlan said, “I don’t know if priest Larkin will appear in the elves and I don’t know if Xuan Zhu will suffer from following him.”
The answer would likely be yes.
Even though Xuan Zhu was the only person that Larkin still recognized, it’s hard to imagine Xuan Zhu not suffering from Priest Larking’s chaotic temperament.
One sentence stabbed Wei Junlan’s weak point and she shut up immediately.
Dongfang Minghui had no idea that after she was gone, the two people were fighting each other as if they were fighting cocks. She was taken to a beautiful place by the little elf who was flying in front of her flapping her wings.
In midair, sparkling bubbles refracted in the sunlight were beautiful. She poked one of them with her finger and found that the bubbles were soft and could not be pierced. Dongfang Minghui almost got lost in playing.
“Ms. Minghui likes it here very much?”
“Your Majesty the Queen.”
Her Majesty the Queen stood with her hands behind her back. As she stood there, the bubbles in the air moved to one side automatically, looking like a series of fish bubbles.
Dongfang Minghui forced herself to focus on the woman in front of her, an elf that looked exactly like Lu Xing, but since she came to the elf tribe, she had never seen the queen appear in the form of a true elf queen.
“Is Your Majesty calling me because of Lu Xing?”
“I want to know the whole process of Xing’er’s injury.” Her Majesty the Queen turned around suddenly, “Although Miss Qian told me part of it, I think that only you who stayed with Xing’er at that time can tell me the whole thing.”
Dongfang Minghui was stung by the sadness from the other side’s eyes, and her heart was very uncomfortable, so she tried her best to tell the whole process of the matter in the calmest manner.
“You said that the Meng Yixiao you described was an elf?”
“Yes, that’s what Lu Xing told me.” However, strangely enough, she never saw Meng Yixiao appear in the form of an elf, “Lu Xing said that Meng Yixiao’s true identity was an elf and the features he revealed are very similar to an elf that you expelled.”
As a close friend, she didn’t know what Lu Xing’s skills were. She always thought that Lu Xing, as an elf, was good at listening to the wind, speed and getting close to plants but she had never seen him use any special skills.
“I think Lu Xing’s guess might be right.”
These were the last messages that Lu Xing obtained with the time of burning his vitality. Dongfang Minghui was inexplicably sentimental, “Your Majesty, you still have questions?”
Her Majesty the Queen took out the brocade box from her sleeve. Dongfang Minghui did not know how many times she had opened the brocade box, and even dripped blood on the stump of the tree of life, trying to prolong Lu Xing’s life by this method.
In front of Dongfang Minghui, Her Majesty the Queen took out the stubble root that had lost its luster of life, “This is something I asked Xing’er to keep safe, but I didn’t think it would become like this.”
After she finished speaking, she tried to throw it away.
“Wait, Your Majesty, can you show me this stubble?”
“I just think there is something wrong with this stump.” The time before she entered the elves, she had opened the brocade box. At that time, the remnants of life force were still on its last legs. Although this tree of life has become a stump, it protected Lu Xing’s life over and over again along the way, it would still be valuable even if just for collection.
Thinking of this, Dongfang Minghui frowned when she got the remaining stump, “Your Majesty, have you always kept this brocade box in your custody?”
“Your Majesty, has anyone else touched this thing besides you?”
Her Majesty the Queen smiled and kept looking at Dongfang Minghui quietly, with an appearance of waiting for her to slip up, “I exchanged the items in the brocade box. Although you are Xing’er’s friend, do you know that anyone who disrespects the tree of life would be severely punished?”
“Uh.” Dongfang Minghui was frightened and stunned. After thinking about the past, she said loudly, “Your Majesty, I have never thought of being disrespectful to the tree of life, even if it is this brocade box, I will not— ”
She suddenly remembered the mouthful she fed Wei Junlan, and couldn’t say anything.
“Now you know why I’m looking for you?” Her Majesty stared at her with interest, “I gave you face in front of Xing’er, but for now it depends on how you explain to me.”
Dongfang Minghui wasn’t too stupid. Not convicting her before meant that Her Majesty the Queen intended to let her live. The meaning of being disrespectful to the Tree of Life was too broad of a concept. The Queen could also take her life if she was accused of any crime, “Your Majesty, What else do you want to know?”
“There is a bloody smell on the stubble in the brocade box. It can be seen that someone has dripped blood on it. Do you know this?”
“I don’t know.”
Thinking of Lu Xing’s solemn warning to her before, Dongfang Minghui denied it expressionlessly, “The brocade box has always been kept by Lu Xing. We lost contact for a certain period of time, so I don’t know.”
“Afterwards, Lu Xing was seriously injured. What he was thinking about was that he wanted me to bring the brocade box back to the elves and give it to Your Majesty the Queen.” Dongfang Minghui didn’t blink, but the sound of her heartbeat revealed her nervousness at the moment. If Her Majesty the Queen found out that there would be any problem with her dripping blood on the stump…
Her Majesty the Queen glanced at Dongfang Minghui, put the stump back into the brocade box, and thoughtfully said, “He is a good boy.”
Lu Xing was indeed a good boy.
When she was sent out, she was still concerned about the bubbles in the air, and she was still immersed in the grief from Her Majesty the Queen. The inexplicable pain also infected her, making her involuntarily think of Lu Xing lying there like this on the cold jade bed.
This emotion continued until she returned to the room, and the atmosphere in the room was also weird. Wei Junlan was sitting by the window, and there was a table under the window. The table was covered with vines and crawled away from her on their own, looking very interesting.
On her knees, there was a white ball, which should be Lulu who ran outside from the sea of souls. Lulu was lying on her back, her posture seemed quite casual.
“Why did Her Majesty call you to go?”
“It’s not a big deal, she just wanted to know who injured Lu Xing.” Dongfang Minghui replied briefly.
Qian Wanyu nodded in agreement, “What did you want to say to me just now?”
Dongfang Minghui stared at Seventh sister’s focused and serious eyes for a long time before remembering what she wanted to say before she had been interrupted before, “Seventh sister, now that Lu Xing has arrived home, I’m wondering if we should leave here and look for Wei Junlan’s merpeople blood source?”
“When are you going to leave?”
At least a few more days, Dongfang Minghui thought silently in her heart.
The elves were very beautiful, and there were many beautiful places. Most elves like to live in trees, just like the house of the tenth elder.
However, this kind of tree hole can be wished for but cannot be easily found. After wandering around, Dongfang Minghui found that only two elves lived in a house similar to the tenth elder. They opened a hole under the tree with permission and entered from the ground. It looked different from the tenth elder’s house.
The ground was a little damp, Dongfang Minghui went in and quickly came out again, she still preferred the houses built on the tree.
“If you like it, when everything is over, we will come to the elves again and build a house on a tree.” Qian Wanyu knew that she was a little reluctant leave so she sacrificed her time for cultivation to accompany Dongfang Minghui for a day.
“Okay, this is what you said to me don’t regret it later hehe.”
Hopefully by then it will all be over.
Qian Wanyu watched her jump up and down dotingly, and climbed from the bottom to the tree house like a monkey, but occasionally a tree vine bound them and pulled them to the top to see the collective scenery of the elf forest.
One day later, Dongfang Minghui met with Her Majesty the Queen alone under the pretense of visiting Lu Xing and made a request.
“I heard that you are leaving soon.”
“Yes, Your Majesty.”
The ears of the elves were really keen, she remembered that she seemed to have said a plan to leave once, and it was estimated that some elves had heard it. Dongfang Minghui spread her hands helplessly, “Your Majesty, your clan’s listening skills are really strong.”
Speaking of skills, she had never seen an elf clansman practicing shooting arrows with a bow in this place, which was really strange.
Hearing her clansmen being praised, the Queen’s face was filled with a smile, and it was no exaggeration to say that she was proud, “Are you here to say goodbye?”
“Your Majesty, I have a request. If you think it’s too much, you can pretend that I haven’t been here today.”
“Since you say that, why not just mention it first?”
“I want to know about the feather demon picture.” Dongfang Minghui remembered seeing Seventh Sister’s face showing a look of horror, as if she had discovered something terrible, she wanted to know what was the reason, “The outside world has spread many rumours about the feather demon picture. There are many versions, and to be honest, I don’t know anything about it. I want to take a look at the feather demon picture and I hope Your Majesty the Queen will allow it.”
Speaking of this the Queen recalled that the feather demon did indeed get taken from her, and the tenth elder returned it.
“I heard from the tenth elder that this picture was successfully retrieved with your help?”
Her Majesty the Queen has already understood that although the other party assisted in obtaining it, she handed it back to them without even opening it. It can be seen that it was really as she was saying, that she was curious and wanted to see.
“Okay, is there anything else you want?”
Dongfang Minghui blushed, shook her head and said, “Thank you, Your Majesty.”
The feather demon picture was taken by Her Majesty the Queen herself personally and placed on the stone table, “The Feather Demon Picture is here, you can open it and see for yourself.”
Dongfang Minghui felt a sense of wonder when she saw the real feather demon picture that were passed on from the outside world so close at hand. She held the feather demon picture in her hand. The weight of the paper was completely different from normal paintings.
Her Majesty the Queen has been observing her expression, and seeing her stupefied expression, she couldn’t help but explain with a smile, “This is a kind of fabric specially refined by our people, this fabric looks like a piece of white silk to outsiders.
Dongfang Minghui opened the feather demon picture little by little, and with an uneasy and excited mood, pulled it to the end little by little. She saw that there was a little difference at the bottom of the white silk. Like the one described by Seventh sister, there were two different feathers crossed together.
There’s nothing at all?
Dongfang Minghui’s face was bewildered, so why did Seventh sister look so shocked?
Her Majesty the Queen was very amused when she saw her like this. She understood a little why Xing’er wanted to protect this girl at all costs. She was really cute and lovable, “You have seen the feather demon picture, but what are your doubts?”
Dongfang Minghui didn’t believe it and looked left and right, wishing she could cut open the middle of the white silk to see if there was anything hidden inside.
“Did they snatch this up just to look at nothing?”
No, it’s not a picture at all, it’s just a piece of cloth! Suddenly, Dongfang Minghui thought of something.
Thanks for the support as usual guys!
