Dongfang Minghui quickly calmed down, “Are you a member of the Blood Fiend Alliance?”
Now it was Mo Ce’s turn to be surprised.
Qian Wanyu also heard from Wei Junlan that she was in a dangerous situation before but a person named Mo Ce once tried to rescue her, however he failed so he later sent a distress message for her. In other words, the other party actually knew them from a long time ago. She put the whip back on her waist, “Can you take off your shirt so I can have a look at it?”
Dongfang Minghui: “…”
Mo Ce took a step back instinctively, with a calm expression on his face. If you don’t look carefully, you won’t see the redness of his ears at all.
The other party was so innocent!
“Well, cough cough, Seventh sister, how is Jing Ke?” Dongfang Minghui intentionally blocked Qian Wanyu’s gaze from looking at Mo Ce. Although she knew that Seventh sister probably wanted to check the mark of the elves on Mo Ce’s body, but in front of her is it really good to see other men’s naked bodies?!
Dongfang Minghui was a little apprehensive, her erratic eyes and Jing Ke’s complex expression met unexpectedly, and the other party’s eyes seemed to avoid her.
Jing Ke’s attitude towards Qian Wanyu was respectful as always, he struggled to get up from the ground, “My lord, it’s great to see you again, this girl is—?”
Dongfang Minghui suddenly recalled that when she got along with Jing Ke, she was still a little girl, and the backlash of the seal had not been withdrawn.
Qian Wanyu looked at Jing Ke thoughtfully, “This is my friend.”
Jing Ke stared intently at Dongfang Minghui’s face for a while, and said hesitantly, “My lord, this girl looks…very similar to the little doctor. Why isn’t the little doctor with you?”
Why did Seventh sister lie?
Dongfang Minghui glanced at the other party suspiciously, and found that Seventh sister’s face was cold without any joy of seeing an old friend, “Don’t talk about me first, how did you appear in this wilderness?”
“My lord, I, at that time—” Jing Ke spoke hesitantly, his eyes wandered, and he always turned to Mo Ce intentionally or unintentionally, as if he was worried about the presence of outsiders.
Dongfang Minghui also looked at Mo Ce suspiciously, and asked, “Why were you fighting?”
Jing Ke wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth, and explained to Qian Wanyu, “It was a misunderstanding. I thought he was the one chasing and killing me, so I fought him. Is senior also familiar with this friend?”
Qian Wanyu glanced at Mo Ce lightly, “I’m not familiar with you, this is the first time I’ve seen you.”
Dongfang Minghui seemed to feel the fleeting relaxation in Jing Ke’s tense expression. She glanced at Mo Ce thoughtfully, and found that the other party was very calm, as if the reason they fought and killed was precisely because of what Jing Ke said.
“Since it’s a misunderstanding and we’re acquainted now, let’s end this matter. Do you two have any opinions?” Qian Wanyu suggested casually, her eyes wandering around Jing Ke and Mo Ce.
“It was just a misunderstanding. Brother, I offended you just now. Please don’t take it to heart.”
Dongfang Minghui thought to herself, the two of them had a deadly fight just now, if it wasn’t for the quick hands of Seventh sister, Jing Ke might have died in the hands of Mo Ce. Now, if Seventh sister said a word, the other party would be relieved. She didn’t know if it was really that she thought they wouldn’t hold grudges or if there was another purpose.
“Heh.” Mo Ce replied coldly, with a trace of displeasure flashing across his face, he seemed dissatisfied, but he took the long sword away, which was considered to be accepting Seventh sister’s proposal.
The two put aside the previous matter, but the atmosphere was still weirdly tense.
Dongfang Minghui, who was sandwiched between the two, moved towards the direction of Seventh sister with small steps, only to hear Qian Wanyu say again, “Where were you going?”
Jing Ke covered his chest and spat out another mouthful of blood. His face was as pale as a piece of paper, “I have been looking for the trail of the Lord, and heaven really answers. I finally found the Lord.”
Mo Ce didn’t speak, and stood where he was, with a very weak sense of existence.
Dongfang Minghui found that Mo Ce didn’t like talking, so she started the conversation, “Mo Ce, your mission is completed, don’t you want to return to the Blood Fiend Alliance?”
“I won’t return.”
“Then where are you going next?”
Mo Ce gave Dongfang Minghui a complicated look, and there seemed to be a thousand words in his eyes, but in the end it turned into a light sentence, “I’ll follow you.”
Dongfang Minghui was dumbfounded.
Qian Wanyu glanced over with a meaningful smile on her face, “Follow her?”
“Seventh sister, this, that, me and him—” Dongfang Minghui waved her hands again and again, explaining for a long time, but she couldn’t explain clearly, her eyes widened, her face puffed up, and she said angrily, “Aren’t we both clear now? What are you doing following me?”
Mo Tse said nothing.
Dongfang Minghui was so pissed off!
“Let’s talk about it first, we are going back to the beast tribe. If any of you want to change the route, you can leave now.” Qian Wanyu glanced at Mo Ce intentionally or unintentionally.
“Wherever my lord is going, I will go.” Jing Ke expressed his determination to follow Qian Wanyu as always.
The words of this oath made Dongfang Minghui inexplicably uncomfortable.
Mo Ce took two steps closer to Dongfang Minghui, expressing his determination to follow Dongfang Minghui in the future with actions.
“In that case, let’s go.”
Originally, it was just the two of them along the way, holding hands, kissing anytime, anywhere, and even casually when they were in the mood. As a result, after adding two big light bulbs, Dongfang Minghui looked at her two little hands sadly.
No one was pulling it…
“My lord, the tribe is now at war, why don’t we just go back to the empire?” Jing Ke asked with a puzzled face.
“War has already started? When did it happen?” Qian Wanyu was most concerned about whether the trading market was also affected by the war, “Who started the war and with whom?”
“My lord, I also heard this from other people. From Shichuan Town, the towns that are closer to the Beast Tribe have suffered because of the internal war of the Beast Tribe, so I think if we go back at this time, it’s going to be bad luck.”
Qian Wanyu didn’t ask any more questions, she probably couldn’t get anything more out of Jing Ke’s mouth.
Dongfang Minghui opened her mouth, but didn’t say anything.
After they walked for about five hours, they found a spacious place to sit down. Jing Ke volunteered to search and said, “My lord, I’ll go to see if there is anything to eat nearby.”
When leaving, he said to Mo Ce again, “Brother Mo, you should come with me.”
Mo Ce didn’t even give him a look, he looked at the sword in his hand seriously and intently, as if the sword was his closest friend.
Jing Ke was completely ignored by him, and laughed dryly with a good temper, “Since Brother Mo doesn’t want to go, then I’d better go by myself.”
After he left, Dongfang Minghui was free to talk to Qian Wanyu, “Seventh sister, Jing Ke, isn’t—”
Qian Wanyu covered her mouth with one hand, and shook her head lightly at her.
Dongfang Minghui didn’t know the meaning of Seventh sister at all. She restrained her curiosity and changed the subject, “Seventh sister, the beast tribe has lived peacefully for so many years, why did the struggle suddenly break out?”
“When we were here, Cyril and Hillary were already about to move. I hope that the Cass tribe will not be defeated so soon.” A trace of worry flashed in Qian Wanyu’s eyes.
“With the help of the Yuntian Pavilion, the Cass tribe pushed back one of Cyril’s troops thirty miles.” Mo Ce said quickly, which was the longest sentence they had ever said since they met.
Dongfang Minghui was taken aback for a while, and then said happily, “That’s great.”
Qian Wanyu was not very happy, “How about the Hillary tribe?”
“After the Cyril tribe was defeated once, I don’t know what kind of deal they made with the Hillary tribe. With the help of a group of war beasts from the Hillary tribe, they attacked again, breaking the defense set up by Cass–“
There were countless casualties…
Dongfang Minghui was silent for a moment, “Mo Ce, how do you know?”
Mo Ze raised his eyelids and glanced at them, “I was still in the beast tribe at that time.”
“Do you know what’s going on?”
Mo Ce shook his head. It had been almost three to five months since he left the orc tribe.
When Jing Ke came back with a beast on his back, the three of them still maintained the posture from when he left. Qian Wanyu sat cross-legged, as if practicing. His gaze swept across Dongfang Minghui, and finally landed on Mo Ce’s head.
“This girl is a friend of the Lord, but I haven’t asked your name yet.” Jing Ke put down the heavy object, picked a place closer to Dongfang Minghui, and began to chat intentionally or unintentionally.
Dongfang Minghui knew that Seventh sister was deliberately hiding her true identity from Jing Ke, so she simply used her previous name.
“Tong girl, did we meet somewhere before? If not, how would you know the Lord?” Jing Ke was worried about the fact that Dongfang Minghui knew his name. Taking advantage of Qian Wanyu cultivating, he wanted to test the waters.
Dongfang Minghui was at a loss for words. She didn’t know what Seventh sister was hiding from Jing Ke, so she spoke quickly and called out the other party’s name. Her cheeks were blushing, as if dyed with a layer of rouge. “Seventh sister always chats in my ear, after a while, of course I will know who you are.”
Jing Ke looked stunned, “Tong girl, you also call the adult Seventh sister… Are you and the little doctor also sisters?”
Dongfang Minghui looked bewildered, and began to pretend to be stupid, “Brother Jing, who is the little doctor you are talking about?”
Jing Ke took out a knife from nowhere, and quickly removed the animal skin. The meat was handled well and skillfully.
Her knowledge of Jing Ke was only during the period in the Cass tribe. Jing Ke often accompanied Li En to practice, and he had never done this kind of thing with a knife. “Brother Jing is planning to grill meat for us to eat?”
“I used to follow the caravan, and I’m good at fighting, and I became proficient over time.” Jing Ke smiled at her, quickly set up a wooden frame, skewered the meat piece by piece, and skillfully lit the fire.
“Brother Jing is very powerful.” Dongfang Minghui praised.
When the meat was fragrant, Jing Ke divided the meat on the shelf and offered a piece to Mo Ce, “Brother Mo, please.”
When she saw Mo Ce ignore him as before, she turned her head directly and moved a little further away from Jing Ke.
Jing Ke was a little embarrassed, he took back the barbecue, and delivered the skewer of meat that Mo Ce didn’t want to Dongfang Minghui, “Tong girl, don’t laugh at my poor craftsmanship.”
“Brother Jing was joking, I haven’t eaten for a few days, and it smells delicious.” Dongfang Minghui took the skewer of barbecued meat from him with a face of ‘joy’. Freshly baked meat without any additives.
When she just took it, she could smell a fishy smell, inexplicably remembering how Seventh sister had dealt with the corpses of Qing Lan Sect disciples before, there was something rolling in her stomach, she licked her tongue. She asked in her sea of souls, “Little Colour, is there anything added to this meat?”
“Nothing has been added, however, this beast was poisoned to death.”
Dongfang Minghui endured the nausea, opened her mouth, and ate a piece of shredded pork in small bites, “Brother Jing, Seventh sister said that you were separated from her before, what have you been during this time?”
Jing Ke paused and said slowly, “I met a friend who was in the same caravan as me before. He often ran back and forth between the beast tribe and the human races. He told me the news of my family’s disaster…I-I went back to the empire on impulse.”
Dongfang Minghui saw that he was downplaying this incident, as if he was just commenting on a small issue without any sadness at all. She looked at the unpalatable barbecue in front of her, which was a bit hard to swallow, “Brother Jing, I’m really sorry of reminding you of sad things.”
Jing Ke smiled bitterly, staring blankly at the fire.
The atmosphere was rather awkward.
At this moment, Mo Ce wrapped a bunch of red, green and purple fruits with a piece of cloth, sat aside, wiped a green fruit on his clothes, then bit into it, and started to eat it.
Dongfang Minghui swallowed instinctively when she saw that he was eating something sweet, and then looked at the piece of meat in her hand that was about to cool down, a trace of pain flashed across her face, and she was feeling a little bit aggrieved. This Mo Ce must know that the meat is not good so he went to the woods to find fruit.
Just after she scolded Mo Ce fiercely a dozen times, something flashed by quickly, and Dongfang Minghui swiped her head to dodge, only to see a red fruit falling on the ground alone.
Mo Ce stared with a cold face, and then concentrated on eating the fruit.
“Why can’t you just give it normally ah, you have to throw it?” She was used to using hidden weapons, so her first reaction is of course to dodge, if she doesn’t dodge should she just foolishly get hit? If it were really a hidden weapon, her hands would even have moved to attack back!
Seeing her pouting, Mo Ce strode up to her after eating the green fruit.
Dongfang Minghui stared at him blankly.
As a result, Mo Ze squatted down, picked up the red fruit behind her, wiped it on his shirt, and started eating it again.
Dongfang Minghui: “…”
She suffered 10,000 points of damage inexplicably!
When Qian Wanyu opened her eyes, she saw Ninth Sister puffing her face and poking the flesh in her hand with her fingers, as if she had a grudge against it, she chuckled lightly, although she sat there motionlessly her spiritual consciousness covered the entire area, she could see everything around them.
“We’ve had enough rest, everyone pack up, and we’ll continue on our way.”
Dongfang Minghui threw the inedible piece of meat into the space ring with a whoosh, Little Color tossed it out in disgust, and found an inconspicuous place to bury it.
“My lord, this is the meat I roasted for you.” Jing Ke graciously delivered a piece of meat to Qian Wanyu.
“I don’t eat barbecue.” Qian Wanyu didn’t even look at it.
Seeing him look depressed, Dongfang Minghui compared her thumbs and silently lit twenty-three candles for Jing Ke.
Mo Ce ate about a dozen fruits, and when he stood up, he packed up the package, tied it, and then stuffed the package into Dongfang Minghui’s hand, “I’ll eat it for you.”
Dongfang Minghui really wanted to smash these fruits on his head! He only gave them to her after eating but the few bites of meat she ate just now were still stuck in her throat, unable to go up or down, very greasy, especially the fishy taste in her mouth made her sick.
As if venting, she wiped the wrapped fruit on her clothes casually, and started to eat it. With the juice from the fruit, she felt much more comfortable.
“Little Colour, was the fruit poisonous?”
“You’re only asking me after you finish eating, isn’t it too late?” Little Color rolled her eyes in the sea of souls, “If it were poisonous, the person in front of you would already be dead.”
After eating one, she felt very comfortable, she rinsed two with water, and delivered them to Seventh sister and Jing Ke respectively, “Just now I ate meat, come, satisfy your craving with fruit.”
“Thank you, Miss Tong.” Jing Ke was not polite at all, and took two fruits from Dongfang Minghui, he picked out a green fruit, and she handed the remaining one to Qian Wanyu.
Dongfang Minghui was a little heartbroken.
That was the one she washed for Seventh sister to eat, but it was given to someone else…ahhhh!
There is probably nothing more annoying than someone taking thing from her lover in front of her, Dongfang Minghui immediately turned cold.
Qian Wanyu glanced at Jing Ke, and walked in front without saying a word.
Dongfang Minghui breathed a sigh of relief, washed the rest of the fruit, took half of it and threw it into her space ring, she raised the remaining half in her hand, and said to Mo Ce, “I will keep these for you. If you want to eat, let me know.”
Mo Ce gave her a strange look.
Jing Ke quickly followed Qian Wanyu’s footsteps, while Dongfang Minghui and Mo Ce slowly lagged behind. While eating the fruit, she couldn’t stop talking, “Mo Ce, since you plan to follow me, do you want to know your life experience?”
Mo Ze remained silent as usual.
“If you don’t want to know, I won’t tell you.” Dongfang Minghui snapped and bit into a nutshell, feeling an inexplicable toothache, “Master Wei is my best friend, thank you for delivering the distress letter for her, just treat it as me repaying a debt to you for that favour.”
Mo Ce didn’t say a word, but his steps became slower and slower, and gradually the distance between the four of them widened.
Dongfang Minghui wanted to catch up with the person in front of her, but Mo Ce grabbed her wrist.
“What are you doing?”
“Y—Young Master Wei, is he okay now?”
The corners of Dongfang Minghui’s mouth turned up slightly, she didn’t know if it was good or not, but Wei Junlan seemed to have a kind of halo everywhere she went, even being able to become the Lord of the mermaid clan, “I mean which aspect do you want to ask about?”
Mo Ce’s words were caught in his throat by her words, “When I saw him before, he was not well.”
Dongfang Minghui understood. Mo Ce had seen someone in the Arena forcibly drugging Wei Junlan, so she thought about it before answering, “Don’t worry, she’s fine. If you are destined, you will see him again.”
Mo Ce nodded and breathed a sigh of relief.
“What are you doing?”
Qian Wanyu looked back and forth between her and Mo Ce with her icy eyes, and finally her dark and deep eyes fixed on Mo Ce’s hand that was holding onto her wrist.
Dongfang Minghui quickly shook off Mo Ce’s hand, took two steps back, and quickly explained, “Seventh sister, we didn’t do anything!”
“We were just talking about what happened before.”
“Hurry up, we’re going to the next town before it gets dark.”
It turned out that the weather was not good, the sky was still clear before, but two hours later, the sky was gloomy, and a long-lost downpour fell without warning. Everyone was walking on the road and got drenched in water.
Hoho what is Jing Ke up to???!
