Sister-in-law Hua then remembered something important, and hurriedly dragged Dongfang Minghui.
“Ahh, sister-in-law Hua!”
Dongfang Minghui was easily dragged forward by her despite the slow trot. Qian Wanyu quickened her pace from behind to catch up with their speed, and the weird feeling in her heart became even worse.
Dongfang Minghui was a little more confident in identifying the terrain, but she couldn’t remember the road they passed just now.
Qian Wanyu glanced at the house in front of her, it was made of five single-person houses merged into one large house. She then looked at the surrounding huts and immediately had a new understanding of the village chief’s power and status to determine welfare. Just looking at how he was living in such a big house for a long time he obviously had a certain authority in Longxian village.
“Sister Hua, why don’t we go in?”
“The door of the village chief is closed. He must be sleeping. It is not easy to disturb him when he is sleeping, otherwise the whole village will suffer.”
Dongfang Minghui felt that it was a fuss but she still asked curiously, “Sister-in-law Hua, the door of the village chief’s house is closed, how do you know he is sleeping?”
Mrs. Hua pulled Dongfang Minghui closer and pointed to a black bell next to the gate, “Do you see that?”
“It’s a bell, what’s the matter?”
“If the bell is hanging outside, it means that the village chief is sleeping.”
Qian Wanyu always felt that Sister Hua was a little more patient with Ninth Sister, so she also moved over to take a look, “In that case, let’s wait.”
Sister-in-law Hua quickly waved her hand, grabbed Dongfang Minghui’s hand and said, “You said just now that you wanted to help me make dried fish, and what else was that other thing?”
“Yes that’s right, follow me.”
Dongfang Minghui was dragged away again. She used her spiritual power halfway, and thought she would break free from Mrs. Hua’s shackles, but after struggling for a long time, not only could she not break free, but she was dragged along even faster!
In a blink of an eye, they came to another independent cottage again.
From the outside, it looked ordinary to the extreme, a small house made of wood and straw, the kind of country house where two people could live.
“This is the home of my husband and I, come in quickly, sit down first, and wait until the village chief wakes up, then I will take you to report to him.”
Dongfang Minghui gave Seventh sister a wink. She already felt that something was wrong, and while she was secretly on guard, she saw the other party push the wooden door open. The styles inside were completely different from the outside world.
If it looks like a broken thatched cottage on the outside, it looks like an extremely luxurious palace on the inside, but the palace was a little small.
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes straightened, and then she quickly grew cautious.
There was a problem in this village, a big problem.
“Sit down for a while, and I’ll prepare the ingredients. I have the ingredients for the dried fish, little girl, what is the ingredient called the molar stick that you mentioned before, let me hear it again?” Sister Hua didn’t care about her reaction at all.
Dongfang Minghui reported all the ingredients for the molar stick she had prepared before. After speaking, she hesitated, “Sister-in-law Hua, can I discuss something with you?”
Sister-in-law Hua emptied the basket and put it on her wrist again, looking like a rural aunt.
“I’d like to make a batch of molar sticks, but I don’t have the ingredients right now, can you get me one? I’ll use these things to tra—” She wanted to say trade but Dongfang Minghui inexplicably thought of the transaction mark on her forehead which would show if she made a transaction and spoke cautiously, “I want to use spirit stones to buy these ingredients from you.”
Sister-in-law Hua struggled for a long time, and asked, “What is spirit stones?”
Dongfang Minghui took out a spirit stone from her space ring and handed it to her, “It’s this, we use this to exchange for shopping.”
Mrs. Hua looked at the stone in her hand and shook her head, “I don’t want these, I don’t need them, do you have anything else?”
“Leave this matter for now, I will prepare the ingredients first.”
Just like a hurricane, after Sister-in-law Hua finished speaking, she quickly went out, and the door was left open, she didn’t seem to be wary of them at all.
Dongfang Minghui went to the door and poked her head out and seeing no one was there, she retreated into the house, and stretched out her hand cautiously, “Seventh sister, this village is weird, look at my wrist—”
There were two deep marks on the wrist, both of which have turned blue.
Qian Wanyu gently stroked it with her fingers, “Does it hurt?”
“It hurts.” Dongfang Minghui pouted aggrievedly, “Sister-in-law Hua’s hands are very strong, and I couldn’t even break free. But it’s strange, she doesn’t have any spiritual power in her body, could it be because she is born with great strength?”
“It’s not impossible.”
When Qian Wanyu said this, she took out a porcelain bottle from the space ring crushed a pill, and gently rubbed the medicine into Ninth Sister’s skin, “If you know it hurts, why don’t you tell her. Maybe she won’t be so rough.”
“What if she suspects me?”
“Let’s wait and see what happens. If she really just wants you to just make some small dried fish, it’s fine.” Even Qing Mo couldn’t feel that there was something wrong with them, maybe they were thinking too much.
Mrs. Hua was indeed a hot-tempered person. In less than half an hour, she came back with a piglet and a basket of vegetables, and there were fish bouncing inside it. “All the ingredients are ready for you, now let’s go.”
Dongfang Minghui was somewhat dumbfounded, and pointed to the big fish that was still alive and kicking in the basket, “Sister-in-law Hua, are you going to use this fish to make small dried fish?”
“Yeah, I used this kind of small fish before, what’s the problem?”
“Yes, but what I need is not such a big fish.” Dongfang Minghui gestured the size distance with two fingers, “I just need a small fish, small fish like this kind of fish is more delicious.”
“That’s a small shrimp, what do you mean by a small fish?”
Dongfang Minghui: “…”
Dongfang Minghui, who was completely defeated by Mrs. Hua’s taste, took a few big fish feebly and made them into dried fish.
Qian Wanyu watched from the side, and asked in a low voice, “Do you want me to help?”
As a result, Qian Wanyu and Mrs. Hua stared at each other with big eyes and small eyes, it seems they still didn’t like each other.
Dongfang Minghui, who had been busy all the time, didn’t see the undercurrents that were raging in the dark. She was almost bewitched by the smell of the big dried fish that she fried, and her stomach was growling. She hadn’t eaten a decent meal for a long time. She added a bit of spirit liquid and when she smelled the fragrance her saliva was about to flow out.
Not to mention that she was drooling in front of the dried the fish, Sister-in-law Hua who was staring at Qian Wanyu outside also got tempted. When the scent wafted out of the house, she quickly stood up, rushed into the kitchen, and was stared at by Qian Wanyu. She sniffed and sniffed, and kept licking her tongue looking a bit like a certain little white ball and Toothless begging for food.
“Well, it’s not ready yet, sister-in-law Hua, you go out first, and I will give it to you when I finish it.”
Sister-in-law Hua, who was pushed out by Dongfang Minghui, reluctantly turned her head three times, drooling all over the floor, but at the same time she was also thinking, why didn’t the small dried fish she made smell like this?
Naturally, the dried fish had to wait until it cools down a bit, and when you chew it when it is crisp, it is enjoyable as a snack.
She waited until all the big dried fish had cooled down before sending out the dried fish in a basket, “Sister-in-law Hua, your dried fish is ready.”
In order to be firm about her character, she didn’t steal a single one. But she has already started to plan in his head. Later, she wanted to go to see the small river, catch a bag of small fish and make some small dried fish, she could also feed it to Toothless after he is out.
Sister-in-law Hua quickly took out a fish, sniffed it and stuffed a fish into her stomach in a short breath.
Before Dongfang Minghui had time to react, most of the big dried fish had been finished! She hurriedly persuaded, “Eat the dried fish slowly. Although the bones are soft, if you eat too much all at once, it will be difficult to digest.”
While she was talking, Mrs. Hua had already wiped out all the dried fish. After eating, she licked her lips and said, “It’s so delicious. I’ve never eaten such delicious dried fish. Little girl, I’ll go find some more ingredients, and you can make another batch for me.”
After speaking, she ran away like a tornado, and disappeared together with the basket on her wrist.
Qian Wanyu pursed her lips lightly, and praised, “The cooking skills are good.”
Dongfang Minghui was a bit dumbfounded. When Sister-in-law Hua came back again, her husband came back with her. He was tall, about 1.9 meters tall, and his muscles were displayed in front of them.
After Mrs. Hua tasted the small dried fish she made, she bewitched and incited her husband. The two had just gone to the lake to catch a net of fish. Just dragged it back and threw it in front of Dongfang Minghui.
“Thanks for your hard work, little girl. Can you make all of these into small dried fish? As a reward, I will help you with your ingredients, Mrs. Hua, and I can take you to stay at our house for a few nights as well.”
“Didn’t you say to report to the village chief?”
Sister-in-law Hua sighed, “When we came back just now, we walked around to the village chief’s house. The village chief is still sleeping. He probably won’t be able to wake up in a few days. You can stay here temporarily. When he wakes up, I will bring you to see him.”
Dongfang Minghui: “…”
The village head slept for so long that it turned into several days. Did Mrs. Hua really not deceive her in order to keep her at home to help make dried fish?
Also… the fish in this net are getting bigger and bigger, how would she make small dried fish with these? Maybe she could make salted fish instead.
With a heart of slight complaints, Dongfang Minghui resigned to her fate and ran to the kitchen, put the pot on the rack, and diligently started frying some large dried fish for this temporary landlord. After a whole night, she managed to finish all the fish in their nets.
“Seventh sister, my whole body is sore, please help me press it quickly.” Dongfang Minghui wanted to cry, but at the end of frying the dried fish, she was even using her spiritual power to reduce the burden. She said it was simple work, but in fact it was quite tough to do it all night.
Even so, she still felt pain in all her bones.
Qian Wanyu sat cross-legged, a little dumbfounded by her appearance, and quickly patted the soft bed, “Lie down, Seventh sister will help you massage.”
Dongfang Minghui unbuttoned her coat and only in her underwear, she threw herself on the soft bed. The bed under her was very soft, as soft as a feather. Dongfang Minghui rubbed her face twice and murmured, “Seventh Sister, what is this, it’s so comfortable.”
If she could sleep on it in the future, she would probably die without regret.
Qian Wanyu circulated her spiritual power, pressing and beating her right arm with just the right amount of force.
“Yeah—ah, it’s so comfortable, Seventh sister, press it again.” Dongfang Minghui turned her head away, continuing to enjoy the service exclusively for her, and hummed comfortably. The consciousness in her mind began to blur, and the last idea she had was that Seventh sister’s massage skills were too good.
Qian Wanyu wanted to use something to block the moaning in Ninth Sister’s mouth, her eyes were dark, and her heart didn’t stop beating until the sound of long breathing could be heard from the person below her.
This soft quilt was made of the silk thread released by the ice silkworm. It is said that these ice silkworms only lived on icebergs.
This village is truly hiding something, she almost got tricked by the initial impression from her eyes.
“However, it’s true that I can’t sense anyone’s spiritual power fluctuations. If one person hides, there is still some possibility, but the whole village hiding their strength?” Qing Mo had never seen such a monstrous scenario, generally when you can’t sense spiritual power there were only two possibilities, either the other party was really an ordinary person, or they were a master who was significantly stronger than them, he had seen one or two masters like that but a whole village…
Because of this, Qian Wanyu repeatedly tried to ignored that strange feeling.
Now, that feeling came up again.
“I think you should wait and see what happens, they don’t seem to want to do anything to you.” Except for eating dried fish… thinking of the speed at which the couple ate dried fish was truly amazing in itself…
“Let’s assume that the whole village of people are masters, even if you tried to do something do you have a certain level of confidence you can escape this place with your Ninth Sister?”
Qian Wanyu had to admit that this answer was very troublesome, “Maybe we guessed wrong, they may really be ordinary people…?”
The next day, before dawn, Dongfang Minghui was woken up by Mrs. Hua, “Let’s go, let’s go fishing!”
“Huh?” Dongfang Minghui suspected that she had heard it wrong, she rubbed her sleepy eyes, “Didn’t you just catch a net yesterday, why are you still fishing?”
“After eating, everyone praised your good craftsmanship, so we want to go throw a few more nets this time and see how many we can catch.”
Dongfang Minghui wailed, and she felt that she had returned to the role of a cook, but after all, she couldn’t stand sister-in-law Hua’s enthusiasm. She discovered yesterday that her net was very big, the kind that can be stretched out with a fist for each hole… The net holes being so big would normally be considered defective goods.
No wonder not a single small fish was caught, even if they caught any, they would all slip away.
Sister-in-law Hua was even more enthusiastic than last time, and the words of foodie came to mind. She kept dragging Dongfang Minghui to visit relatives and friends, and introduced everyone in the village.
Qian Wanyu followed behind them at a leisurely pace, seeing hundreds of people appearing in the village, she had a very subtle feeling compared to when they first arrived yesterday, they had actually only seen a few people at that time…
“Come on, let’s go fishing.”
Dongfang Minghui watched them walk to the lake in high spirits. Behind the whole village, there was a very wide lake. The water in the lake was blue, which looked the same as the water in the sea area, but the color was slightly lighter.
She tugged at Sister-in-law Hua’s clothes, “Sister-in-law Hua, you are all fishing, are you going to catch all the fish at once? If you want to eat dried fish in the future, I normally wait until the little fish grows up and breeds offspring before fishing.”
“Well, don’t worry, this lake is alive.”
Dongfang Minghui was a little confused, she turned her head to look at Qian Wanyu, and saw Qian Wanyu shaking her head meaningfully at her.
“Come on, you throw the first net.”
Unable to stand everyone watching, she looked at the net with a big hole in a bit of embarrassment, and threw it down casually. The net sank into the lake, and Mrs. Hua was watching at the side. When it was ready, she tightened it. She dragged and dragged all the big fish in the net up.
Dongfang Minghui was dumbfounded watching from the side, she finally understood why the this sister in law’s strength was so great, if she spent all her life fishing like this…
Everyone went forward to catch a net from every household, and happily lifted the net back to each house. The man from Mrs. Hua’s house heard that the fish was caught, and rushed over quickly to help. He easily put the net together with his carrying them along on his back.
“Sister-in-law Hua, can the fish be temporarily frozen?”
Sister-in-law Hua was very worried about her family who ate a few more dried fish than her yesterday, she was planning to let go of her diet and have a big feast today, but the chef quit! She became anxious immediately, “Why do you want to freeze it?”
Dongfang Minghui shook her hands and said aggrievedly, “I accidentally twisted my wrist while frying dried fish yesterday, I need to rest.”
Mrs. Hua stared eagerly at her wrist.
Dongfang Minghui simply picked up her wrist and showed it to her. The wrist was red, and there were handprints around it. Normally, her wounds healed easily, but for some reason, the place where Mrs. Hua pinched was still bruised and purple. It looked a little shocking.
Qian Wanyu gave Sister-in-law Hua a disapproving look, “It’s true that we should rest for a while until these marks disappear.” This is also to let the other party know to not take her for granted.
Mrs. Hua glanced at the mark a few times guilty, then rubbed her hands secretly, and subconsciously rubbed them twice, “Wait for me, I’ll be back soon.”
After speaking, she flew away like a gust of wind.
Seeing her leave, Dongfang Minghui breathed a sigh of relief, “Seventh sister, I want to make some small dried fish for Little White and Toothless.”
The lake in this village was very clear, and she didn’t know what was going on here but she felt that the fish in the lake look very fat and tender, also they taste different.
“Yes, but you must wait until your wrist is no longer swollen.” Qian Wanyu wanted to remind her about the ingredients. The ingredients for the molar sticks were still on the backlog to make too. Yesterday, she saw Ninth Sister turning over fried dried fish in the kitchen. How much of those dried fish went into the stomachs of Mrs. Hua and her husband?!
“This injury is a bit strange.” Dongfang Minghui knew her own physique very well. Generally, wounds like this would have healed long ago. What’s more, this could only be regarded as the result of being pressed hard, it’s not even a wound.
Qian Wanyu took out the porcelain bottle again from her space ring, before crushing the pills.
Sister-in-law Hua came back like a gust of wind, and picked a herb in her hand. She grabbed Qian Wanyu’s hand, and the two faced each other.
Only then did Qian Wanyu truly feel this sister in law’s strength, frowning slightly, she asked in puzzlement, “Why did sister-in-law Hua stop me?”
“Use mine, this medicine is very effective, give it a try.” Mrs. Hua put the herb directly in the palm of her hand, and patted it together, the herb turned into mush, and the medicine juice just flowed like this on Dongfang Minghui’s wrist.
Dongfang Minghui was really frozen, the concoction felt very cold, and she couldn’t help shivering when it was applied to her wrist.
“Little sister, looking at your young age, your body doesn’t seem too strong, are you afraid of the cold?” Sister-in-law Hua took out a piece of cloth from nowhere, and tied a bow around the wrist for her, She sighed, “You have a good rest, when your wrist is healed, then fry the dried fish for me.”
“Sister-in-law Hua, can I go to the lake in your village to catch some fish?” Dongfang Minghui felt that her behavior was quite reckless, but she was idle anyway, so she simply tried to bargain more ingredients.
“Yes.” Mrs. Hua glanced lightly, and finally her eyes fell on the other’s wrist, doubting, “You can still catch fish with this hand?”
“No, I’m getting Seventh sister to help fish.”
“That’s fine, I’ll lend you the net.”
Sister-in-law Hua flicked the net and all the big fish fell on the ground, and some of them were dying and wanted to jump back to the lake.
The two held the big net and looked at each other, and then walked to a place where no one was around. Dongfang Minghui summoned the man-eating plant, and used the silk thread it made to make a big finer net.
“This will work.”
Qian Wanyu held the net, sprinkled the net bag on the lake and waited patiently. She felt that the net seemed to move twice in her hand so she slowly began to gather the net to pull it up.
“A little heavy”
“Seventh sister, if you actually think it’s heavy could it be because we caught too many small fish?” Dongfang Minghui couldn’t believe it, she had seen how heavy Seventh sister’s reincarnation bow was and she could still lift it it was surprising that this net could be considered that heavy.
Qian Wanyu didn’t know why either but she thought something about this lake was strange.
What Dongfang Minghui said this time is not right, the net is only so big, even if she caught all the small fish in the lake, it should not be so heavy.
“Ninth Sister, you step back.”
The spiritual power in Qian Wanyu’s body was running rapidly, and she moved her legs back little by little. When they were shoulder-width apart, she gritted her teeth, stomped her feet, and threw the net upwards fiercely.
They saw a golden object flying up like a parabola.
Haha poor Minghui forced to be a cook
I did various server upgrades this week I hope the site is faster 🙂
