“Why is there water under here?”
“This is running water. I remember Mrs. Hua once said that the water in this lake is alive, so we don’t have to worry about all the fish being caught.”
Dongfang Minghui nodded, and she took out a moonstone to look at the water below. It was blue. “It’s strange, the water in this underground passage is very clear, just like the water in the lake.”
Qian Wanyu was not in a hurry to make a conclusion. “Come on, let’s see where this water flow leads to. Maybe we can learn some secrets of this village.”
Dongfang Minghui held the blue pearl in her mouth and held Qian Wanyu’s hand. The water cover enveloped the two of them, and they floated in the narrow passage. Toothless fluttered in the water with all four limbs and claws, playing very happily in the water. There were a few small fish in his mouth, one by one, spitting out some bubbles gently.
They floated out of the underground passage with the current and soon saw the lake surface illuminated by the moonlight.
“I didn’t expect this underground passage to be connected to this lake.” Dongfang Minghui looked very happy. She pointed to the distant shore, where the dry branches beside the bonfire were crackling and igniting. “Seventh sister, look there, that’s the place where we grilled fish just now. The bonfire hasn’t been completely extinguished.”
Qian Wanyu’s cold eyes drifted across the darkness, and Toothless was swimming beside her. All the small fish beside him were scared and hid away, except for a few silly ones that were caught. Toothless whined unhappily and as a result, a stupid fish leaked out of his open mouth, swam away and escaped. Toothless quickly flicked its limbs and chased after the small fish.
“Hahahaha.” Toothless still looked a little child who hasn’t grown up yet.
Qian Wanyu couldn’t see the golden pseudo-dragon at the bottom of the lake. “Bring Toothless back, there is an important thing for him to do.”
“Find that pseudo-dragon.”
Dongfang Minghui put two fingers on the corner of her mouth and whistled. When Toothless, who was swimming in the lake, heard the sound, it swam back and spat out all the small fish into Dongfang Minghui’s hands.
Seeing a lot of small fish, Dongfang Minghui wondered if Toothless, who was hibernating before had heard what she said about making small grilled fish before for food.
“Toothless, you have a good sense of smell. That little gold pseudo-dragon is a treasure. You need to find it.”
“Aww.” Toothless turned around, buried its head in the lake and began to look for the golden pseudo-dragon.
The water cover was floating not far from Toothless, and Dongfang Minghui was puzzled. “Seventh sister, since you’re looking for that pseudo-dragon, why did you let it go just now? Won’t it take this opportunity to escape from this lake?”
After all, the lake was alive.
“It doesn’t matter, it can’t escape.”
“Living water, living water… Seventh sister, do you think there are other outlets for this lake?”
“Let Toothless take us to look for it first.”
They wandered around the bottom of the lake twice, but they couldn’t find the golden pseudo-dragon. Toothless searched everywhere unbelievingly, but the pseudo-dragon could not be found. Instead, it found the source of the water. Dongfang Minghui looked at the water dropping like a waterfall, flowing down from the mountain with strange rocks in the distance, and the sound of clattering waves.
Under the bright moonlight, the flowing water of the lake seemed to be full of vitality and flowed continuously.
The mountain was very ethereal, and it seemed a bit out of reach, not to mention, it is the middle of the night it looked pitch black, so they could only see a hazy outline.
“Seventh sister, this mountain looks a little strange.”
She didn’t know whether her imagination was too rich, or the appearance of this mountain really looks like what she said, “It looks like a hovering snake or a dragon.”
Qian Wanyu looked noncommittally, “Let’s go back to the passage, I think we will wait for the pseudo-dragon there.”
“You’ll find out soon enough.”
The water cover floated back to the underground passage of the village chief’s house. Dongfang Minghui and Qian Wanyu sat in the water cover and waited. Toothless jumped back to the steps after soaking in the water for a long time, shaking his hair, and the water droplets on his body scattered everywhere.
“Hey, don’t make noise, or I’ll send you back to the space ring.”
Little Toothless lay obediently on the steps. It was big and didn’t like the lifeless space. After turning around a dozen times, the two sparkling eyes slowly closed, but his ears were still moving, like it was listening to the sound.
The water was flowing quietly, Dongfang Minghui saw that Seventh sister was practicing, she also kept quiet and did not continue to disturb.
The night passed quickly, when the warm sunlight replaced the night, the lake water on the underground passage also changed color, Dongfang Minghui supported her head, she spent the whole night trying to understand why the Seventh sister was not worried about the pseudo-dragon running.
This is probably the meaning of the so-called monks who can run away but not temples.
The light changed little by little, from the initial bright color to a dark color, and then the water in the underground passage darkened again. Before they knew it, a day has passed like this.
When a golden shadow flashed past, Toothless, who had been dozing with his head on his limbs, heard the sound, swished, and swooped past the water cover.
The loud sound of water splashing woke up Qian Wanyu from her practice, and also startled Dongfang Minghui who was in a daze. Then she saw a golden light in the black passage.
“It’s that little goldfish.” Dongfang Minghui looked surprised, and hurriedly pushed the water cover to float forward.
The cunning little pseudo-dragon had been lurking at the bottom of the lake. It calculated the time and found that the two people by the lake hadn’t appeared all day, so it secretly waited until night. When night came, it happily swam home.
It didn’t know…
There was actually an ambush at the back door of the house by this group of cunning humans!
A golden fish was swimming very fast on the lake, and Toothless’s limbs were also sliding very quickly. He showed all his energy and after swimming around the lake, he took the little goldfish in his mouth in one gulp.
The pseudo-dragon wanted to break free, but Toothless’s fangs pressed hard on its fatal point, scaring it so much that it dared not move again.
“Toothless is awesome!”
The two quickly went up the steps and returned to the fifth room of the village chief’s house. Toothless even shook the wet hair on his body, his two long eyes gleamed proudly, and walked up to Dongfang Minghui proudly asking for praise.
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t help laughing when she saw it, patting his big head, she took out a fire lotus seed from her space ring. The fire lotus seed exudes a strong fire-type spiritual power, which was extremely pure, “This is your reward.”
In fact, the remaining fire lotus seeds were all reserved for Toothless, as well as the fire lotus itself that Little Color picked.
When Toothless saw it, the big eyes were glowing, and it spat out the little goldfish in its mouth in distaste. With a roll of its tongue, it rolled the fire lotus seed into its stomach, and happily circled around in place, flicking its tail non-stop.
“Master Village Chief, don’t pretend to be dead.”
Qian Wanyu saw through its rotten plot at a glance, pulled out the lightning whip, and kindly reminded, “Put on your clothes before transforming, otherwise your flesh will be scraped off piece by piece and eaten as sashimi.”
“Wow, what a vicious human being.”
The little golden pseudo-dragon lying motionless on the ground jumped to a height of more than one meter when he heard the threat from Qian Wanyu’s words. A golden light flashed, and a naked person appeared. Far away, he rummaged around, found a piece of unknown cloth to wrap around his waist and turned around like this.
“Who are you guys? We don’t welcome you humans in Longxian Village. Get lost.”
Qian Wanyu was not annoyed, so she sneered, and the whip in her hand emitted purple lightning, “Let’s try it out to see if my whip is faster, or your escape speed is faster.”
“Y-you, what do you want to do?”
“I don’t want to do anything, but I just want to ask you, where is the Dragon Clan?” Qian Wanyu also tried to ask casually, but seeing the other party’s face change drastically before turning to run she became sure of her guess.
It seems that he really knows something.
As soon as the village chief opened the door and wanted to escape, he was bounced back into the house by the vine net outside. The dense vine branches surrounded the whole house at some point, not to mention the door, even the windows were sealed. In addition, the iron plate leading to the underground passage was closed again. In order to save space in the room, Toothless lay prone on the iron plate, staring at the false dragon spirit with extremely innocent eyes.
Seeing that the opponent’s strength was not as good as it and it turned out to be a human. Toothless subconsciously licked his tongue, wondering if eating this pseudo-dragon would transform him into a human, thinking about it, a handful of flames leaked out of Toothless’s mouth.
“It’s really hot!”
“Toothless, take your flame back quickly.” Dongfang Minghui had seen how powerful the flames of Toothless were, and even everything that could not be burned could be burned by it.
Toothless probably just ate that fire lotus seed, before digesting it, and accidentally spewed out a little flame. Tilting its head, it watched the flames grow from a handful to a mass, and then everything in the house suffered.
Toothless looked at Dongfang Minghui aggrievedly, it tried to keep the flames from spraying it out thinking for a while to close its mouth with its paws but then it burned itself…
“Suck it back with your mouth.”
Toothless simply used his own mouth to bite it, and the flame was indeed killed by a few bites, and then according to Qian Wanyu’s instructions, the flame was brought sucked back in again.
After being busy for a while, Dongfang Minghui couldn’t bear to look directly at her silly pet.
Qian Wanyu looked at Toothless, then at Ninth Sister, her mouth was tightly pursed into a line, the expressionless face was somewhat serious, as if she was about to discuss a very important matter.
Dongfang Minghui looked at her toes guiltily, with an expression of knowing nothing.
The most stunned person in the whole room was the village head, who looked at Toothless in a daze, and said with a puff, “D-dragon, dragon, dragon god?!”
Toothless glanced at the village chief, and pressed the village chief’s head directly to the ground with his forelegs.
“Toothless, don’t mess it up.”
Toothless doesn’t understand any complicated things it just follows what it wants to do and accidentally played with the village chief to death, it is estimated that Seventh sister’s plan would be ruined…
When Qian Wanyu saw it, she was actually overjoyed, this saved her a lot of talking, “You saw it too, it’s looking for the Dragon Clan, tell us the truth.”
The village chief finally rescued his head from Toothless’s claws, and looked at Qian Wanyu and Dongfang Minghui warily, “I don’t know about the land of dragons. I will only know when I break through the boundaries of growth and transform into an adult.”
Qian Wanyu walked around the house twice, before saying for a long time, “You are lying, if that’s true, how can you recognize it.”
Toothless glanced at it, lazily resting on his own limbs, looking sadly at the scorched fur on his forelegs.
The village chief didn’t dare to swallow his breath because of her suffocating aura. He rolled his eyes slightly, “I didn’t lie to you, this village is the sanctuary of the dragon clan. It’s been a hundred years, but no one has ever set foot here, except for you.”
“What does that mean?”
Longxian Village was actually hidden within a barrier. He didn’t know how many years ago, but the Dragon Clan blocked the way to enter the Dragon Valley, and even all the affiliated lands of the Dragon Clan were blocked. Unless there was a certain medium, there was no way to enter this land.
“The reason why I was able to sneak into Longxian Village was because of the dragon immortal fruit I got by accident, and under the leadership of an elder from the Dragon Clan, I was able to find my way here.”
Dongfang Minghui and Qian Wanyu looked at each other, and they both saw the surprise in each other’s eyes, “You mean we entered Longxian Village by mistake?”
After the village chief finished speaking, he turned his gaze to Toothless. It had a slightly strange expression, hesitated to speak, and had a sad face. Finally, he asked cautiously, “This dragon god seems to be immature.”
Dongfang Minghui looked at Toothless and rubbed her nose guilty. Back then, she didn’t know what kind of animal Toothless was, so she raised it as a dog… If the Dragon Clan knew about it, they would probably chop her up.
It’s scary to think about it.
“Toothless is still a baby dragon cub.”
“No, the two of you haven’t understood what I meant. What I meant is that this Dragon God is an adult, but he doesn’t seem to be spiritually enlightened.”
“Oh, what do you mean?” Dongfang Minghui frowned involuntarily.
Qian Wanyu grabbed Ninth Sister’s wrist, “You said before that you entered Longxian Village that a member of the dragon clan brought you in. If that’s the case, take us to meet that person of the dragon clan.”
The pseudo-dragon retreated again and again, with a sad face, “The dragon clan elder passed away not long after we entered here…”
The whip in Qian Wanyu’s hand swung at him, and the whip was slightly tightened, the pseudo-dragon turned red, “To be honest, I might spare your life but if you talk nonsense again, you will be destroyed.”
“Seventh sister, it’s not too late for you to listen to it, anyway, it won’t be able to leave for the time being.”
Qian Wanyu didn’t want to kill it, this whip was just to warn it not to play tricks, to talk nonsense or to deliberately change the subject, “Tell me why he died, where he’s buried and take us there.”
The pseudo-dragon had no choice but to go back to the house and change to a set of clothes.
As soon as the group of them went out, they saw curious eyes from the surrounding villagers. They probably didn’t expect that these two outsiders would walk out with the village chief.
“Village Chief, you woke up, this time you slept five days less than last time.”
“I woke up early this time and couldn’t sleep anymore.” The pseudo dragon seemed to have changed his previous personality in front of them and became very serious.
Dongfang Minghui listened all the way, most of the villagers were talking, and the false dragon replied concisely.
Sister-in-law Hua only knew that the village chief had woken up after hearing what the villagers said. She squeezed out from the crowd and saw the village chief walking towards the lake with the two little girls. She couldn’t wait to follow with Hua Yi
“Village Chief, you finally woke up, these two little girls want to live in our village for a period of time, please approve.”
The village chief glanced at the Hua family couple secretly, “Okay, go back first, I’ll take them around.”
Sister-in-law Hua wondered as she walked, “When did the girls go to the village chief’s house? By the way, the village chief obviously didn’t sleep in his own house when we were looking for things at the village chief’s house before…”
“Shh, do you still want others to know what we did at the village head’s house? Go, go home.”
“Alas, the village chief hasn’t told me whether to keep those two little girls or not. Should I keep the door open for them or not?”
“We’ll talk about that later.”
Seeing that there was no one around, Dongfang Minghui asked curiously, “Why do people in the whole village say you were sleeping?”
Pseudo-dragon took a look at Toothless who was following Dongfang Minghui step by step, and the shock in his eyes lingered for a long time, “What is your relationship with the Dragon God?”
Dongfang Minghui bent down and gently stroked Toothless’ big head, “We are relatives.”
Toothless was very happy when he heard that, he rubbed Dongfang Minghui’s palm with his big head, and habitually rubbed against her twice.
The pseudo-dragon gave a complicated look at Toothless, “I said before that I was able to break through the growth limit by swallowing the dragon immortal fruit, and it was a fluke to transform into a human form, but I have to soak the essence of the sun and the moon for half a month every month to maintain my human form. I just tell them that I’m sleeping.”
Qian Wanyu glanced at him.
The pseudo-dragon circled them around the lake, and finally on the left side of the lake, there was some dense grass. He pushed the grass away, and there was a piece of land where there was no grass. In the middle, there was a big black rock sign.
The pseudo-dragon stopped about ten meters away from the dark boulder.
“The elder of the dragon clan was buried under that stone.”
Just as Qian Wanyu was about to set foot on it but she was grabbed by him, “This is a forbidden area of Longxian Village, you can’t set foot on it, if you hadn’t insisted on coming, I definitely wouldn’t want to set foot on this place again, this is the place where the Dragon Clan elder spoke to avoid.”
Dongfang Minghui was being bitten by Toothless’s sleeve and he was pulling her back desperately. She squatted down and stroked Toothless, looking at the darkness, “Seventh sister, doesn’t this look like what happens after the black medicine has spread?”
In the beast tribe, before they fell into the ice cellar, they had also seen a mutated land, but the color was not as deep.
Qian Wanyu scratched the dirt with a stone and handed it to Dongfang Minghui.
“How did the Dragon clan elder pass away?”
That was a long time ago. The pseudo-dragon was still a small pseudo-dragon at that time, and the figure of the dragon clan elder was high above him, but he was seriously injured. Every time his injury flared up it would be worse than death. The wound was entangled with a black silk thread that seemed to be devouring his life.
“However, before the Dragon Clan elder died, he sealed his spiritual power on that big stone, and told me to use this stone to suppress his body after his death. As time went by, this stone slowly began to change color, and the surrounding area also turned black, so I listed this place as a forbidden area.”
“Seems those group of ghosts have really infiltrated every place, it’s so annoying.”
“The dragon clan’s choice of enchantment seal is somewhat similar to the elves clan back then, maybe there is a connection there.” Qian Wanyu didn’t dare to make a conclusion for the time being, but she still believed about half of what this pseudo-dragon said.
Hmm seems like those death spiritual masters are trying something SUS!
