Dongfang Minghui saw that the two elves who led the way were about four or five years old. They looked very cute. Their white and tender little feet looked very cute. When she got to the gathering place, she couldn’t come up with a good answer as to why she was there.
“Your Majesty said that you will study hard behind Cai Lan today, and she will come to test you in half a month.”
The elf is cute, but what she says isn’t cute at all.
Cai Lan looks like a very beautiful adult elf. She’s small and compact, with a pair of light blue and transparent wings, and long hair that drags down to the bottom of her buttocks. She heard Lu Xing say before that the length of hair and the color of the pupils was the standard for judging the strength and weakness of an elf’s spiritual power.
“Hello, distinguished guest, I’m Cai Lan, you can call me Lan Lan if you want.”
“Lan Lan, I’m Minghui.”
Cai Lan is very responsible. Knowing that the other party was here to learn art, she first took Dongfang Minghui to identify the varieties of white silk. There were more than 50 varieties of white silk so tactile ability, to measure and identify the silk by touch was important.
Fortunately, after Cailan taught her five times, Dongfang Minghui finally found what she wanted. That kind of white silk that the brocade silk that Her Majesty the Queen had mentioned.
“Cai Lan, this brocade cloth feels so comfortable.”
“Naturally. This kind of fabric is more comfortable than Xinli cotton, needle cotton, medium cotton and hand-tipped cotton. It is specially used by the royal family, and is completely unusable by ordinary people.” Cai Lan thought she was sincere in coming here to learn so she gave her all to help, and told the other party all the characteristics of several kinds of white silk without hesitation.
Dongfang Minghui was restless but she learned a lot after studying for a long time.
“Sister Cai Lan, I’m particularly interested in the five kinds of white silk you mentioned just now. Can you tell me more about it?” Dongfang Minghui looked young but having the cheek to call her younger sister seemed to be taking a huge advantage although she wouldn’t admit it.
Cai Lan explained the ins and outs of the five kinds of white silks in seconds, and at the end mentioned, “This brocade silk is generally used by Her Majesty or for entertaining outsiders—Oh, only Her Majesty uses brocade silk but there is also a group of clothing made of brocade silk specially made for those by Her Majesty’s side.”
The other party didn’t know what to think, her expression flickered, and she changed his words halfway through what she said.
“Sister Lan Lan, I want to ask, have you ever seen a painting with brocade silk?”
“That- I’ve never seen it before.”
Dongfang Minghui saw that her face changed so she stopped asking. It was obvious that someone had used brocade silk to draw pictures in the past but who was it? She needed to ask that question to Her Majesty the Queen.
She scratched her head irritably, and dragged her tired body back to their hut. The expected liveliness was not there, the hut was deserted, and there was no one. She looked around for a while, and saw Qian Wanyu and Wei Junlan behind the house through the small window.
The two of them sat on opposite sides. During the cross-legged practice, there were bows and arrows and long swords that they had abandoned on the ground. From the degree of falling leaves, it could be seen that the two had just fought fiercely, but fortunately they did not chop down the trees of the elves.
She watched for a while, then simply lay down on the bed, rolled up the blanket, and fell asleep.
The next day, Cai Lan taught her how to cut, tailor, and create clothing step by step. Dongfang Minghui felt like she had become a tailor, but she was still trying to learn until the third day, when two female elves suddenly came.
They were somewhat out of tune with other elves she had met, and their aura seemed a little fiercer than others.
“We are following the command of Her Majesty and came here to teach Miss Minghui how to refine the holy water.”
“Uh.” Dongfang Minghui thought to herself that Her Majesty the Queen really knew about it, “Give my thanks to Her Majesty the Queen, thank you both, I will trouble you.”
The refining of holy water was much simpler than she imagined, probably because she was a pharmacist and had a very good grasp of quantity control.
“Ms. Minghui, Her Majesty has a request.”
Dongfang Minghui grabbed a bottle of water in her space ring. After she packed up, she went to see Her Majesty the Queen. Facing a table of jams and fragrant fruit wine, her saliva was about to drop because of the fragrance.
“Quickly take a seat.”
Dongfang Minghui was a little surprised, and she was a little restrained when she sat down. Her Majesty the Queen in her mind was noble and solemn. But after she really got to know her, it seems Her Majesty the Queen in her mind was replaced by kindness and gentleness, without any majesty.
But, today, this woman dressed in noble and luxurious clothes showed a side she has never had before.
“If Your Majesty is doing it for us, I think you have invited two less people?”
In the past few days, she has been busy like a spinning top, hoping to make holy water as quickly as possible, so that she can leave here and go to the merpeople. As for Seventh Sister and Wei Junlan, both of them seem to be cultivating. The elves forest felt very safe and no one came to disturb her, so she felt relieved.
“Ms. Minghui, you’ve been thinking too much. I set this banquet just to thank Xing’er for saving your life.”
Lu Xing’s tragic situation is entirely because of her. Her Majesty said the truth, it is possible that she is actually here to… Dongfang Minghui’s mind wasn’t bright enough to think about reasons making her miss the existence of Seventh sister a little, if Seventh sister’s there, she can quickly figure out the meaning of the other party, instead of being like her, a blind person.
“Come on, this is the fruit brew specially refined by our clan. Miss Minghui has to taste.”
“Okay, thank you, Your Majesty.”
The other party didn’t go deep into the topic, so Dongfang Minghui naturally didn’t touch this serious topic. Following the other party’s words, she tasted the taste of the fruit fermented fruit. As soon as the tip of her tongue touched the sweet and sour taste, her eyes narrowed sourly. Her mouth opened a gap and she took a sip, there was still a choking taste deep in her throat, “Wow.”
The taste seemed simple, sour, sweet and astringent all at the same time!
Her Majesty the Queen looked at her with a smile, and filled her with bowl after bowl.
Dongfang Minghui felt a little dizzy after drinking it. She couldn’t see people clearly, but she felt a little bad in her heart, “Seventh sister.”
“I’ve sent someone to summon your Seventh sister, so wait a minute.”
The vines in the soul sea were also drunk and dizzy, like a pool of mud. When it heard Minghui calling, Little Colour also danced like a boneless dance similar to the pig fairy grass.
Dongfang Minghui narrowed her eyes slightly, she could still see the branches of a vine sneaking out from her side, and poking a few times towards the bottom of an empty bowl.
Aiya, how dare Little Colour steal something on this table at the beginning and how could she not find it?!
“Little bean sprouts.”
“Hey, here I am.”
“Hey, I’m the little bean sprout, you get out of here.”
The two flower buds started fighting again, you bumped me, I bumped you, like marbles bumping into each other, Dongfang Minghui angrily pointed at Tianyin helmet, thinking to herself, when she has time, she has to ask these two and figure out which one was the real little bean sprout she first planted.
“Love Flower, Lucky?.”
She called out for Love Flower who she hadn’t heard for a long time, and only after realizing it did she realize that Love Flower and Lucky planned to cultivate well beside the tree of life. The two plants were far away from her, she stumbled and stood up. She couldn’t tell the difference between east, west and north, so she randomly chose a path.
“Pig fairy grass.”
The Pig fairy grass suddenly appeared on her shoulder, and the pig’s tail swung desperately, slamming it on her cheek, trying to shake the person sober, but the weak force felt more like tickling. It made people want to laugh more than anything else.
Her Majesty the Queen followed closely behind, and was not surprised when she saw the pig fairy grass, but when she looked at the person in front of her, her eyes burst into a kind of joy, “Searching for a long time has finally paid off.”
After searching for so many years, she finally found it.
“Hey, we meet again.”
The vines on the tree of life slowly stretched out in front of Dongfang Minghui like a hand, and let the other party grab the vines, it guided the other party to move forward little by little. Dongfang Minghui also climbed up the trunk of the tree of life step by step as expected.
“Tsk tsk, why haven’t you woken up yet?”
Wei Junlan plucked a leaf from the vines on the wall, and poked around Dongfang Minghui’s nose as if tickling a puppy. After fiddling for a long time, the person on the bed breathed evenly and smacked her lips as if dreaming of something good.
“Pack up, we’re leaving today.”
Qian Wanyu’s face was a little stinky. Ever since she found her under the tree of life, her entire face has been tense, and the air pressure releasing from her body has been very ominous. However there’d still be a certain someone who is not afraid of death coming to taunt her with a few words.
Wei Junlan’s willpower had also been strengthened, especially after being abused by Qian Wanyu for various reasons, she didn’t give up continuing and carried out her “not afraid of death” act to the end.
Dongfang Minghui woke up after hearing the loud noise. She turned over, rubbed her sleepy eyes, and saw a red mark on Wei Junlan’s side face, “Wei Junlan, what are you doing?”
Wei Junlan brows had blue veins popping out, the evidence of the crime was still on her face, and she still asks what she is doing? She smiled viciously at the other party, stretched out her hands to grab the other party’s neck, but a flexible long whip around her waist pulled her back.
“Seventh sister, why did I fall asleep?”
As for the memory of that day, Dongfang Minghui’s mind went blank. She had no idea how she got back to this place. She rubbed her head and felt nauseated from the hangover.
Qian Wanyu had a cold face, and after throwing Wei Junlan out of the door, she leaned in front of Dongfang Minghui with a cold face, “You don’t remember how you got back, but you still remember being with Her Majesty the Queen and enjoying drinking?”
When talking about drinking, Dongfang Minghui beat her head hard, she shook her head, and asked seriously, “Drinking with Her Majesty the Queen? When did I do that?”
“You don’t remember?”
“Seventh sister, what should I remember, and how did I get back?” She tried to think back, she seemed to have refined a bottle of holy water but then she was invited by Her Majesty the Queen, then, there was no then.
Thinking of the holy water, Dongfang Minghui quickly checked her space ring, “It’s okay, it’s still there.”
“Your Ninth Sister seems to have really forgotten.” Qing Mo said in her soul sea, “Could it be that Her Majesty the Queen did something to her memory?”
Qian Wanyu’s brows deepened, “Something must have happened in the middle.”
“Seventh sister, what’s wrong with you?” Dongfang Minghui automatically smoothed the other’s raised eyebrows, “Seventh sister, should we leave? It’s time to say goodbye to Her Majesty the Queen.”
“Hey, why, Sister Seventh doesn’t want to leave the elves yet?”
“Her Majesty the Queen has retreated two days ago. We said goodbye before.” Qian Wanyu felt more and more that something strange had happened in the middle. How could the host of the place leave and seclude themselves to practice before the guests left?
If it was said that the black medicine was the cause before, now that Her Majesty had secluded herself again after being cured it seemed unreasonable.
“Let’s go.” If conditions permitted, she didn’t want to stay here any longer.
“Seventh sister, wait, I also want to see Lu Xing.”
“Her Majesty the Queen is in retreat. Without her, the guards will not let you see Lu Xing.” Qian Wanyu had discovered that the Holy Spring was a forbidden area for the elves. It was only because of the Queen that they were allowed to enter before.
When Dongfang Minghui walked away, she turned back three times, very attached. When the group was about to leave the elves, she suddenly stopped, “Seventh sister, I don’t know if there will be a chance to come next time. I want to see Lu Xing before leaving. Just a glance.”
Qian Wanyu’s face was sullen, and her body exuded a cold breath. Wei Junlan couldn’t help but go forward and pull Dongfang Minghui’s sleeves.
It was the first time that she had fought against Seventh sister’s decision, especially knowing that the other party would stop her and insisting on doing it.
Qian Wanyu grabbed her hand, and the two of them strode towards the road leading to the holy spring.
Dongfang Minghui’s wrist was hurt by her tugging but she didn’t say a word. When they arrived, the elves guarding outside the holy spring all fell asleep as they did last time.
“It’s you, right?”
The leaves rustled and there was a warm breeze blowing.
“It must be you.”
Dongfang Minghui believed that this was the back door opened by the tree of life for her. She dragged Qian Wanyu into the holy spring and filled several bottles of holy water with a porcelain bottle. Just enough for helping her to refine potions.
“I just need a little to refine my potions I hope you don’t get angry…”
Qian Wanyu stood behind her, and after listening to her muttered words, she thought that the other party was saying it for her, her frowning brows loosened, and the corners of her mouth rose slightly.
“Is it ready?”
The water in the holy spring was still cold, and the dense aura spread around the two of them, making it hard to see each other’s expressions.
Dongfang Minghui had lingering fears, she wanted to take this opportunity to get some water from the holy spring before she had to come back. Of course, seeing Lu Xing accounted for a larger proportion of her reasons but both were indispensable, the appearance of Seventh sister just now scared her.
“Seventh sister, no need.”
When she got up, Qian Wanyu stretched out her hand to help her, her fingers wrapped her five fingers firmly, and they walked towards the cold jade bed in the corner, “The cold is too heavy, it needs two cultivators together to resist the cold.”
Before Dongfang Minghui could say the last word of rejection, she was conquered by the other party’s domineering behavior.
That’s right, she was a little angry at Qian Wanyu’s inexplicable attitude just now, and she was ready not to talk to her all the way. As a result, this kind of persistence was broken by the opponent’s step-by-step pressing, especially when the opponent’s spiritual power invaded her soul sea without any reason, and all her persistence just now became a fart.
“Say goodbye to Lu Xing.”
The spiritual energy on Qian Wanyu’s body was warm, more than half of it resisted the cold air emanating from the cold jade bed, and the rest went to their clasped fingers.
Dongfang Minghui focused all her attention on Lu Xing. She stretched out her other hand, trying to probe Lu Xing’s breath. Seeing him lying quietly, she always had an unreal feeling, deeply afraid that he will leave them like this.
“I know, you Lu Xing… You will definitely want to see Uncle Wood again. Lu Xing, I will help you fulfill your wish. Next time, okay? Next time when you open your eyes, I promise you will be able to see him.”
Qian Wanyu could clearly feel the discomfort of the other party through the connection of spiritual power. The heart-wrenching pain made her very uncomfortable.
“Okay, we should leave.”
When walking out, Dongfang Minghui just saw the tree of life swaying with thick stalks, she bowed slightly towards it, “I hope you can bless Lu Xing, at least hold his breath until we find a way.”
“Can we go now?” Wei Junlan, who had never had a good impression of the elves, changed the subject abruptly when she saw Dongfang Minghui’s reddish eyes, “Let’s go, for the sake of my life, we have to find the whereabouts of the merpeople.”
“No need to look for it.”
The two said in unison, then looked at each other and put their eyes on Qian Wanyu.
“Miss Qian, what do you mean by that?”
Qian Wanyu glanced at the two of them, and took out a prepared topographic map from her space ring, “Map of the merpeople.”
“Wow, Seventh sister, show me.” Dongfang Minghui instantly forgot about the elves, took a look at the map, her eyes widened, “It’s over, I forgot one very important thing!”
Dongfang Minghui and Wei Junlan turned pale at the same time, Wei Junlan was better, at least she could swim in her previous life, but she was just afraid of water. Dongfang Minghui was however an out an out land whale. If they needed to go to the merpeople they had to spend some effort on learning how to swim. The climate was also particularly cold.
Qian Wanyu pursed her lips and smiled, then followed the elf who was leading the way with a blank face.
After the three of them went out, they were still a little dazed in the wild jungle.
Dongfang Minghui felt a wave of enchantment, and after saying goodbye to the elf, she still couldn’t get back to her senses, and there was a sense of loss, “Next time, how can we find the way to the elves?”
Wei Junlan and Qian Wanyu breathed a sigh of relief when they finally came out.
“It’s hard to find, the entrance to the enchantment is changing at any time.”
