Coincidentally, the merpeople took them to the isolated island they wandered to last time. This isolated island has been abandoned for many years and was a suitable place of residence.
This time, they set up tents to resist the cold sea breeze at night and the cold dew of the morning sun. On the dark island, there was just that little spark of light which drove away the long-standing loneliness and made the whole island a little less eerie.
After the merpeople took them to this isolated island, they rolled around in the sea and swam away. As for where, they didn’t say anything and their group didn’t ask much.
Dongfang Minghui was shocked and woke up soon. She opened her eyes and met Qian Wanyu’s worried gaze. She smiled, stretched out her fingers to smooth the other’s frown, and said softly, “Seventh sister doesn’t look good when you frown at all.”
After she finished speaking, she said it again but was only met with a silent world in her ears. No matter how many times she said it, it seemed like she didn’t say anything.
Seeing that she wanted to talk, Qian Wanyu hurriedly covered her mouth with her hands, and opened her mouth slowly to mouth the words – don’t panic.
Dongfang Minghui was of course very panicked, the silence in her ears was too scary, it felt as if she was thrown and abandoned by the world. She couldn’t even be sure if what she said was correct and could only repeat it again and again to feel it in her mouth.
“Come, I’m here.”
Qian Wanyu waited for her to calm down a little, before taking the trouble to say a sentence patiently ten times, just so that the other party could understand what she said, the two looked very intimate teasing the single dog on the side.
Wei Junlan, who was half lying in the tent, didn’t notice that the way the two of them got along in the whole tent was very strange, at this moment she had bigger concerns.
She had become a fish, and it took less than a minute for her to transform from a person to a fish. There was also a red mark on her outer thigh and her inner thigh. She didn’t know how Qian Wanyu hit this tricky angle. She kicked back and forth with her two feet, and regained a little sense of human existence from her two white and tender feet, but it was not enough. The irritating scene just now was so powerful that her mind remained blank on the way back. Coming back from behind with the merpeople, she had of course—been swimming with her fish tail.
A fish tail was indeed faster than a two-legged human in the water after all.
“Hey, Dongfang Minghui.”
Qian Wanyu put the other person’s finger on her lips, and let the other person feel it word by word.
Wei Junlan looked sideways and saw the two of them looking at each other affectionately. Dongfang Minghui was still rubbing Qian Wanyu’s mouth back and forth with one hand. She was obviously teaching but it gave everyone else an ambiguous aura. She saw countless red heart bubbles emerge between the two of them, and the feeling of intimacy made her complain in her heart. The cruelty of dog abuse was inhumane! She was feeling miserable like this, and her fellow villager didn’t consider her feelings.
“Yes, that’s it, try little by little.” Qian Wanyu smiled, but she couldn’t help but ask Qing Mo, “How do I check Sister Ninth’s injury, and how long will it take for her to recover?”
“You can try dual cultivation.”
Wei Junlan was so angry that she didn’t even want to pay attention to them but then she turned around and peeked at them thinking deeper.
Is it really necessary to find a partner on the way of cultivation? Wei Junlan had this idea inexplicably.
When cultivating to the supreme state, it was like standing on a high place alone, no one could enjoy that kind of joy, and no one could easily experience it. However when she thought of such a day, she felt that this feeling was terrible.
In this case, even Qing Mo made a wrong estimate. Even with the double cultivation, Dongfang Minghui still couldn’t hear the conversation, and their exchange plan in the sea of souls came to an abrupt end. Dongfang Minghui felt a little bit of fear in her heart, but seeing Seventh sister beside her all the time cheering her up, she also tried to drive away the feeling of hesitation and fear.
“With me here, don’t be afraid.”
Wei Junlan saw that the two were completely ignoring her. She thought she had made Dongfang Minghui angry, so she played tricks on her and made trouble. Now it was real and after such a big change, no one comforted her…
Qian Wanyu looked at her as if she was insane. After a long time, she held back a sentence that made Wei Junlan vomit three liters of blood, “Ninth Sister is injured and can’t hear for the time being.”
“Oh, what do you mean by can’t hear?”
“Hey, Dongfang Minghui, don’t scare me.” Wei Junlan rolled and crawled in front of Dongfang Minghui, looked at her and blinked a few times like a big fool, then asked, “Dongfang Minghui. ”
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes rolled around, and she fixedly looked at her lips.
Wei Junlan licked her mouth. Facing the ‘disabled person’, she couldn’t say a word, she turned to look at Qian Wanyu, “What’s wrong with her, how did she get hurt? When will it get better?”
Qian Wanyu frowned. She took the opportunity to check Ninth Sister’s ears with her spiritual power. It seemed that there was no problem, but in fact, her eardrum was wrapped with a thin membrane that her spiritual power could not penetrate.
Wei Junlan saw Qian Wanyu’s face, and hurriedly asked, “Will she get better?”
Qian Wanyu stared at her coldly, if her eyes could be turned into a blade, Wei Junlan would have been slashed by a thousand swords, “I will find a way to heal her.”
The two happened to be talking face to face. Qian Wanyu was tall and almost blocked Wei Junlan’s figure. Their chatting attitude made Dongfang Minghui feel insecure, because she couldn’t hear what they were saying and now she couldn’t even see it so she couldn’t even guess to what they were saying.
The sour feeling of being isolated by the world came back again.
Just this sentence, Qian Wanyu repeated it five times, with a shallow smile on her face, without a trace of impatience. Dongfang Minghui fixedly watched the other person’s mouth open and closed, she stared at the corner of Seventh sister’s mouth and smiled involuntarily.
Wei Junlan held her forehead helplessly. She had a stomach full of words to complain. After encountering Dongfang Minghui’s situation, she was like a gun jammed, and she was anxious to death. But she didn’t have the guts to complain to Qian Wanyu, she probably wouldn’t hear anything good from the other party.
With Litte White patrolling the island, the first night passed peacefully.
Wei Junlan thought about it for most of the night and couldn’t understand what happened to her. She listened to Qian Wanyu’s gentle voice all night, and she was full of thoughts. At night, she had a nightmare, and there was a girl in her dream. She whispered to her softly, and jumped on top of her, pressing her jigglies, it frightened her so much that she woke up immediately.
When she woke up, she found that the sky outside the tent was already bright, and the sound of the water just now was the sound of fish tails flapping around on the sea water.
Wei Junlan found that she was the only one left in the tent, and she did not know where the other two were. Fortunately, Litte White was still guarding outside the tent. She walked a few steps and found that her legs were not as painful as yesterday. She sat down in a place quietly watching the merperson playing in the sea.
She didn’t know the difference between merpeople species, this one seemed a little mute, watching him swim in the sea, the long brown fish tail flashed a peculiar brilliance in the light.
She stared blankly for a long time before she said, “Hey, what’s your name?”
The little mute smiled, as bright as a peach blossom as always, and the bright light in his eyes flashed past.
“Want to die?”
Qian Wanyu pulled Dongfang Minghui out of the jungle. As soon as she looked up, she saw Wei Junlan, like a zombie who had just climbed out of the grave and didn’t understand anything. If there was an abyss ahead, she didn’t doubt that Wei Junlan would jump down without hesitation. So when the lightning whip was thrown out, she used a little more force, at least it hurt more than the place where she had struck on the inside of her leg yesterday.
Wei Junlan later realized that her leg was burning with pain, and she jumped up and down. As a result, her foot touched the ground and the pain was terrifying. She jumped and jumped like a rabbit.
Dongfang Minghui laughed loudly beside her. Even though the laughter could not reach her eardrums, she was still very happy to see Wei Junlan like this.
“Since you made Ninth Sister so happy, I will consider the strength in my hand when I remind you next time.”
“Then what about the time after?!”
Qian Wanyu raised the whip in her hand, “I have warned you twice, but the third time won’t be so lucky.”
“Then tell me, who is this little mute, why is he so evil every time I see him?” Wei Junlan’s head was blank just now, she didn’t even know she got up and walked, this meant that her body and consciousness had been manipulated. Thinking about the whip marks from the previous two sessions, she felt a chill down her spine, “Why did he follow you, and where did you go after you were separated from us?”
Qian Wanyu looked at the sea coldly, “After I got separated from you, I met another group of people on the sea.”
Wei Junlan widened his eyes and repeated it again in disbelief, “Did I hear it wrong just now, you met another group of people?!”
In addition to the merpeople, there was another group of people on the sea. They all seemed to be up to no good. She swam on the sea for an unknown amount of time, and just before her spiritual power was about to run out, she saw a boat. The boat made of rafts seemed luxurious. She threw a whip on the railing of the boat and turned over 180 degrees to see inside.
At that time, there was a naked merman lying onboard, but the upper and lower body of the merman had been separated and the strong smell of blood made people sick to the stomach. There was group of people were still laughing and watching the merman’s last life pass away, and they also discussed how to make the merman’s tail into a variety of delicious dishes, making any normal person shudder.
“They’re hunting mermen.”
“How—how did you escape them?”
Qian Wanyu was exhausted at the time. After getting on the boat with the help of her whip, she sat and rested quietly. She let Little White out to go fight with the group of people. Those group of people were not sure who she was, not to mention that there was an extremely vicious white tiger spirit beast, they did not dare to act rashly. She took advantage of this gap to meditate for a moment, trying to recover her spiritual power.
She looked a bit embarrassed at the time, but the overwhelming aura surrounding her body, coupled with the bravery and skill of Little White they had temporarily shocked the group of extremely vicious people.
“I didn’t really escape, I used another way to…take ownership of the boat.”
Qian Wanyu said it quite easily, but in fact, she picked a few strong people, beat them down and stepped on their faces before she got the right to speak.
Wei Junlan could already imagine what happened to Qian Wanyu, and being able to escape so easily was simply awe-inspiring, “By the way, do you know who they were?”
There were also many treasures among the merpeople. Hunting the merpeople while selling their treasures was probably the main practice of the mercenary group.
“I don’t know.”
Selling the merpeople or selling their treasures was both the same for Qian Wanyu, there wasn’t any difference. She changed the subject and looked Wei Junlan up and down meaningfully, “Should I call you Young Master Wei, or Young Miss Wei?”
Wei Junlan turned her back without care, ignoring Qian Wanyu’s mocking, her heart wanted to vomit blood. Qian Wanyu’s words were so out of nowhere she almost died of internal injuries.
The corner of Qian Wanyu’s mouth rose, and with a very doting smile on her cheeks, she arranged Dongfang Minghui to sit down in the tent, and patted her palm twice, “Here, what does Sister Ninth want to do?”
Dongfang Minghui stared at her lips, watching what she was saying one by one, “Seventh sister, are my ears still good?”
Wei Junlan watched the little mute flutter a few times in the sea and then moved to the bottom of the sea. After a while, he disappeared. There were a few stranded fish not far from the shore. It was a very common kind of fish.
She picked it up suspiciously, “Are you here to repay?”
She’s heard that a cat catches a mouse to repay kindness, and a weasel catches a chicken to repay kindness. This is the first time she’d seen a merman who repays kindness with a fish.
“Can you eat?”
“Should be able to.”
Seeing the fish that was still beating vigorously, Wei Junlan swallowed, and the inexplicable desire to eat appeared again even if it was eaten raw. She was so frightened that she threw the fish aside, and fled far away, looking terrified.
Qian Wanyu looked at her face that seemed to be greatly frightened, and said kindly, “If it were me, I would accept this change calmly. It is better to work hard to become stronger than to resist with fear.”
Few people could easily accept this experience from being forced into becoming a half beast, and then into a mermaid but in the face of reality, so what if you don’t accept it?
“Your blood is fused with the blood of the merpeople. Now the scales on your body have disappeared, and the color of your eyeballs have recovered, but you also have an additional fish tail. It can be seen that the blood of the merpeople is replacing your original blood…” It is even possible that the blood of the merpeople in her body was so strong it would devour the remainder of the blood of the eagle clan inside.
At least it all seemed to be a good thing for now.
Wei Junlan silently hugged her legs and shrank aside, feeling sad until Dongfang Minghui delivered a grilled fish to her, looking at her with a smile from the corner of her eyes.
“Fill your stomach first.”
Wei Junlan thought more than once that the acceptance ability of her fellow villager was really high. She even despised herself, but the other party didn’t seem to despise her at all, but instead comforted her earnestly. Thinking of the previous time when the other party had sworn and carefully asked to trust each other, Wei Junlan felt that it was really tempting seeing the fish in her hand.
Everyone ate their meal quietly. After the meal, Dongfang Minghui was pushed into the tent by Qian Wanyu. She took off the other party’s clothes and checked the wound on her back. The wounds from being crushed by that iron door before was still very unsightly. Qian Wanyu held a medicinal pill, crushed it and pressed it on the other party’s back until the medicine was absorbed by the skin. Then she pulled up the quilt and wrapped her up into a dumpling.
“Just fall asleep like this.” Qian Wanyu lightly scratched her finger on the other’s nose.
The person lying on the quilt fell asleep quietly, and there was no sign of waking up at all.
“That little mute is here again.”
Wei Junlan pointed to the merman that was stranded on the shore of the isolated island. The other party seemed to be basking in the sun. The front half of his body was lying on a rock, and his fish tail was playing in the water. Since she was warned twice by Qian Wanyu, she didn’t dare to keep her eyes on his face at will, but she was still curious, how could this merman be imprisoned by his own people even though he was such a handsome merman?
Qian Wanyu stared at him for a while, “Let him be.”
The merman who she nicknamed Mute, piled up a few fish everyday and swam away in no time afterwards. About two times a day, the first time would be there in the early morning, and the second time was in the evening. There were even still a few silly fish that were jumping up and down, trying to jump back into the sea from the shore.
Wei Junlan felt really puzzled. After eating fish before, she still enjoyed it, and always looked forward to the next day’s meal, “Last time you said to the group of merpeople that we were looking for a doctor…”
Qian Wanyu’s gaze turned to her from the burning bonfire.
“The purpose of our coming to the this place…didn’t we only just help me with the scales on my cheeks?” Wei Junlan sneered. Now that they have stayed in this isolated island for a day, they still didn’t know what to do.
“Yeah.” It took a long time for Qian Wanyu to say such a sentence. She also had to find a shaman from the merpeople tribes to look at Ninth Sister’s eardrums, “Wei Junlan, when the little mute comes back tomorrow, you follow him. See where he goes.”
“You want me to follow him?”
“If you want to find the true gathering place of the merpeople, we have to rely on him.” The merpeople were all a hybrid of fish and people. There must be some reason for him to run back and forth. Qian Wanyu wanted to follow him and turned her head to look. Glancing at the man who was still sleeping in the tent, she said lightly, “Follow him carefully, don’t be fooled by his eyes.”
Wei Junlan sneered, having been fooled twice, it is absolutely impossible for her to be that stupid again.
Alrightyy Wei Junlan the fish is back in business! Poor Minghui I hope she recovers soon 🙁
