Unfortunately, there is not even a place to shelter from the rain.
Dongfang Minghui was completely drenched by the rain, and her eyes were covered by the rain. Just as she was thinking about whether to hide in a tree, a piece of animal skin suddenly appeared above her head, temporarily shielding her from the rain. After the rain was wiped away from her eyes, Mo Ce’s paralyzed face could be seen clearly.
Qian Wanyu turned her head and saw Mo Ce standing beside Ninth Sister, trying to protect Ninth Sister from the wind and rain with a piece of rag swaying in the wind.
Dongfang Minghui walked over and whispered in Qian Wanyu’s ear, “There is an uninhabited cave nearby, that’ll allow us to hide from the rain.”
Qian Wanyu glanced at her and reminded, “Where’s your umbrella?”
In order not to arouse Jing Ke’s suspicion, the silk umbrella behind her was thrown into her space ring. She blinked and said with a smile, “Seventh sister, let’s hide from the rain tonight, we will go on our way after the rain. It won’t stop for a while after all.”
Qian Wanyu raised her head, this day was indeed the most suitable for her cultivation.
“Okay, let’s find a place to take shelter from the rain for now.”
The place was provided by Little Color. On the left side of the road they walked before, there was a fork in the road. The fork went all the way to the end, and there was a cliff below. The cave was just a little distance below the cliff, “It’s just below us.”
Due to the rain, the road down the cliff was very slippery and difficult to walk.
Dongfang Minghui was hesitant to let Little Color’s vines appear, since Jing Ke knew about them. As soon as Little Color appeared, she would probably be exposed.
Mo Ce volunteered to stand up, “I’ll go down and have a look first.”
He jumped down about halfway, inserted the sword in his hand into the cliff, and slid all the way down to see a dark cave, “I found it.”
“Jing Ke, you can figure out a way to get down on your own.”
“Yes, my lord.”
Qian Wanyu threw out her whip and found the right place. The tip of the whip got stuck in a crack in a stone. She pulled it hard to check it wasn’t loose then jumped down with Dongfang Minghui in her arms to see the cave.
“Do not talk.”
Dongfang Minghui could still see Seventh sister’s tense face, she seemed very angry so she simply kissed her cheeks twice, and finally kissed her lips.
There were flames beating in Qian Wanyu’s dark eyes, and with a strong shake, she was sent into the cave.
“Ah, how long have you been standing here?”
Mo Ce was dressed in black and stood motionless at the exit of the cave as the background picture. He raised his eyes and glanced at Qian Wanyu before walking into the cave.
There was a strong smell of blood in the cave. Qian Wanyu inserted the moonstone into the wall to light up the cave. There was a severed snake inside. The snake head and tail were separated, and the middle part was cut into three parts.
“You killed it?”
Dongfang Minghui took a look. The snake was about five meters long, occupying most of the cave, and there were some scattered skeletons in the cave, which should be the prey captured by this snake.
“This snake beast is so big, there should be an energy core in its head.”
Mo Ce threw out his sword, squatted down, ran to dig out the snake’s head, a soft wind energy core appeared.
“Ah, my lord, help!”
The last of the group, Jing Ke who came down from the top stumbled and almost fell off the cliff. His fingers barely grabbed a big rock, and most of his body fell off. Qian Wanyu threw out her whip and swept him up.
Jing Ke was paralyzed on the ground, with a face full of panic, panting heavily, “My lord, you saved me again.”
Qian Wanyu didn’t say anything, the rain was still falling outside, and it was worse than before, “We will rest here tonight.”
“Such a big snake, who killed it?” Jing Ke looked horrified when he saw the snake, and then slowly approached it when he saw Dongfang Minghui and Mo Ce muttering beside the snake.
“Brother Jing, it’s Mo Ce who killed it.”
Mo Ce had skinned and drained the snake beast’s blood. In addition to the wind energy core, he also searched for snake pills and chopped the snake into pieces. Mo Ce then set up some branches and lit a fire.
After there was a bonfire in the cave, it wouldn’t be so chilly.
Qian Wanyu has been standing outside the cave, watching the flashes of light outside from mid-air, she pursed her lips tightly.
“If you miss this time, it may not be easy for you to encounter such a heavy rain.” Qing Mo reminded in the sea of souls.
“Seventh sister, what are you looking at?”
Qian Wanyu turned her eyes from the two people in the cave to Dongfang Minghui, leaned down, and smoothed the wet sticky hair on the other’s forehead, “I’m going out for a while, you stay in this cave, be careful.”
“Where are you going?”
A flash of lightning illuminated the deep affection in Qian Wanyu’s eyes.
Dongfang Minghui saw it and her heart was beating wildly, but she was completely confused.
Qian Wanyu pulled the person into her arms with one hand, held her head and sucked a red mark on the other’s neck forcefully, as if punishing her then and rubbed it gently with her teeth.
Dongfang Minghui was ticklish and shrank her neck.
After finishing speaking, with the hook of whip, Qian Wanyu jumped up against the cold rain, and quickly found a place that might allow her to receive the strongest point of lightning.
In the blink of an eye, Jing Ke quickly walked outside the cave and there was no trace of Qian Wanyu, “Tong girl, where did the lord go?”
Dongfang Minghui spread her hands, expressing that she didn’t know, “Seventh sister said she has something to do so she let us wait for her in this cave.”
After finishing speaking, she moved to Mo Ce’s side. Although she was not familiar with Mo Ce, she felt that Mo Ce was the more reliable person. It instinctively drove her to sit on his right side and lean towards the fire.
The wet clothes dried quickly from the fire, and the barbeque smell in the cave covered up some of the previous rotting smell, making the smell in the cave less unpleasant.
“Mo Ce, I haven’t seen you in the Blood Fiend Alliance before. When did you join?” Dongfang Minghui wanted to know more about the other party, so she just mentioned it casually. Who knew that Mo Ce would not say a word after this topic was proposed.
After roasting a snake, Mo Ce took out something from his bosom, sprinkled something on the snake, and handed it to her, “Eat.”
Dongfang Minghui sniffed it. The thing sprinkled on top should be seasoning, and the taste would naturally not as good as the seasoning she made herself. She tried a small mouthful, and it was okay, at least better than Jing Ke’s.
“Brother Jing, you eat one too.”
Dongfang Minghui snatched the snake meat from Mo Ce’s hand with familiarity, half-blinked at him, and sent it to Jing Ke.
Jing Ke was obviously absent-minded, staring at the fiery bonfire in a daze, turning a blind eye to the things delivered by Dongfang Minghui.
“Brother Jing, Brother Jing, take a bite.” Dongfang Minghui held the snake skewers in front of his eyes twice before Jing Ke came back to his senses, “Tong girl, thank you.”
After Jing Ke took it, he was full of thoughts while eating, and soon began to feel dazed again.
Dongfang Minghui was unhappy after eating a bunch of skewers, and Mo Ce kept looking at her, which she could ignore at first, but as the number of times increased, her eyebrows twitched together, “Mo Ce, what’s wrong? Just a piece of advice, it’s very unreasonable for you to look at a girl so blatantly.”
Mo Tse nodded slightly.
After that, the atmosphere became awkward again. There were obviously three people, but no one spoke, and the sound of burning branches could be heard in the cave. Just when Dongfang Minghui thought about whether she had said something wrong just now.
“Uhh——” Mo Ce glanced at her, and then quickly looked away. He stretched out his finger and pointed to her neck, “Well, you seem to have been bitten by something here.”
Dongfang Minghui touched the place she pointed to. That place was the trace of love that Seventh sister left on her neck before she left!
Her face turned red all of a sudden and she quickly turned around in shame, she couldn’t see anything in this place and there was neither a mirror, nor a scarf or turtleneck that could cover it….she gritted her teeth lightly, Seventh sister that must’ve been on purpose!!!
“I have medicine.” Mo Ce kindly placed a porcelain bottle of medicine between the two of them.
Dongfang Minghui’s forehead had a black line, “I don’t need this medicine, it’s just a mosquito bite.”
Mo Ce looked at her suspiciously, seeing that she really didn’t need it, he put away the medicine again.
The three of them found a place to rest not far from the bonfire.
In the middle of the night, Dongfang Minghui woke up once, opened her sleepy eyes, and was shocked to find that she was the only one left in the cave, she was wearing a loose black coat. She didn’t need to look to know that it belonged to Mo Ce, “Hmm, where did they all go?”
After she asked Little Colour she found tha it seemed that Jing Ke had snuck out at some point, and Mo Ce followed him.
There was still lightning and thunder outside, Dongfang Minghui struggled for a moment, “Let’s go up and see, what if they are looking for Seventh sister, or doing something that is not good for Seventh sister?”
“It’s raining so hard outside, their traces would have been washed away by the rain, even if you go out, you can’t find their traces.” Little Color said.
“Why didn’t you call me earlier then?!”
Little Color was silent, it wouldn’t admit that it was scared to go out because of the lightning, it wouldn’t go out even if you dragged it out!
Little Color, who was afraid of being struck by lightning, sealed off her five senses, and sat in the sea of souls so intently showing that she didn’t care.
Dongfang Minghui was so pissed off by it, she pondered Little Colour’s words carefully, and found one thing strange. If even Little Colour couldn’t find their trace, Seventh sister would definitely not be found by Jing Ke after going out for so long.
She comforted herself a little, and ran outside the cave. The accumulated water outside the cave flowed into the cave, and the rain showed no sign of stopping.
She went back and forth in the cave, and when it was daylight, Mo Ce rushed back first. When he saw Dongfang Minghui sitting by the campfire, he froze for a moment, and quickly leaned against the wall with his sword in his arms, closing his eyes.
The series of actions made people dizzy.
After a stick of incense, Jing Ke also came down from the top and landed steadily outside the cave.
Dongfang Minghui thought of the “dangerous situation” he was in when he came down before, and secretly scolded him as a scheming bitch. When Seventh sister was there, this man showed a hypocritical face of being weak, and when Seventh sister was gone, he had another face.
“Brother Jing.” She pretended to have just woken up, rubbed her eyes, stood up, and the baggy coat slipped off her body. She identified it and put the clothes on Mo Ce’s head casually.
As soon as Mo Ce picked it up with his hand, he knocked off the clothes from the top of his head, and rubbed his eyes too, probably because of using too much force, his eyes were still a little red.
“Ah, sorry to wake you up.”
“Brother Jing, why are you soaked all over? Did you go out?” Dongfang Minghui pointed at his wet clothes in a fuss, and then glanced at Mo Ce. When Mo Ce came back, his clothes were also soaked but after a short while his clothes were suddenly all dry.
Jing Ke had snuck out under an unknown pretense, and when he came back without knowing it, he was bumped into by Dongfang Minghui. He took out a very small rabbit beast, “I saw that you were all asleep, so I went up to see if I could find something to eat, pity I couldn’t find anything bigger.”
Tsk, this guy is very versatile, he seems to have come prepared with an excuse.
Dongfang Minghui pretended not to know and laughed, taking Jing Ke to the place where the bonfire was burning, “Brother Jing, we are not hungry, what’s more, we haven’t finished eating the snake meat yesterday. It’s raining heavily outside, not to mention food, even the animals are probably looking for a place to hide from the rain, so don’t do such a dangerous thing next time.”
Jing Ke nodded again and again, Dongfang Minghui threw the dead rabbit in his hand aside, she took a closer look, there was a bloodstain on the neck of the rabbit but there was no wound elsewhere.
It should have been killed by Jing Ke in one go.
Jing Ke was a Spiritual Master of the water system so he could make use of the rainwater outside, the disadvantaged environment for most people would become a big advantage for water system users.
If this guy was really someone fishy, she didn’t know if Mo Ce and her could beat him.
After a few months, she actually couldn’t see through his current strength.
In this way, they stayed in this cave for a full half a month, eating snake and rabbit meat. When they finally ran out of dry branches, they had to suffer from the cold in the cave.
Dongfang Minghui and Mo Ce tacitly staggered the time. When she was resting, Mo Ce was keeping watch. When Mo Ce was resting, she would stay up staring at Jing Ke with wide eyes.
Since that day, Jing Ke seemed to be quite peaceful and hadn’t made any more movements.
The gloomy sky disappeared, and a ray of golden sunlight appeared in front of everyone. The brilliance hit the cave, warming it, and dispelling the cold air in the cave.
“Isn’t it time for the lord to come back?”
Speak of Cao Cao and Cao Cao would be there.
Just as they were discussing whether to wait in the cave or go up, Qian Wanyu’s whip appeared in front of them.
Qian Wanyu felt relieved when she saw that Dongfang Minghui was fine. Her eyes wandered over Jing Ke’s body, “Let’s go, it’s sunny outside, we should go up too.”
“Seventh sister, what are you doing?”
She was collecting lightning. The natural lightning bolts this time was a great opportunity to take its essence.
Dongfang Minghui knew it, she pouted, and before Mo Ce and the others came up, she whispered, “The night you left, Jing Ke went out once while we were asleep.”
Qian Wanyu said it quite easily, but in fact, if she hadn’t used some special methods, she might have been discovered by Jing Ke when she was practicing on the top of the mountain. She was undergoing the test of thunder and lightning at that time but she deliberately released a wisp of consciousness outside to keep watch.
She saw Jing Ke coming towards the hill where she was, and Mo Ce following unhurriedly behind him. If Mo Ce hadn’t made a noise on purpose to test him, she doubted that Jing Ke would appear in front of her, but at the same time, an opportunity to test Jing Ke’s loyalty was missed.
“What are you girls talking about?”
Dongfang Minghui felt that the current Jing Ke gave her a strange feeling, although he was smiling, for some reason, it made her heart feel chilly.
She was lucky enough to think that he couldn’t find Seventh sister, but in fact, maybe the other party was very smart, and he actually guessed what Seventh sister was going to do. Dongfang Minghui pulled out a professional smile, “I’m discussing the next step with Seventh sister. I’m wondering how do we go on the road to beast tribe faster, Seventh sister joked that we should fly…”
“No matter what the lord say, I will follow the words of the lord.”
Good dog act!
After Mo Ce got ready, they really set off. During this period, Dongfang Minghui felt a dull pain in her palms. She watched Seventh sister and Jing Ke walking together. She was probably wary of the other party acting as a demon. She looked at the palm of her hand, and the sleepy dragon seal after many months began to go crazy again.
“Why didn’t it happen before…”
The sleepy dragon’s seal was faintly red, and the seal kept turning, like crazy. She found that the flowing marks began to change every other stick of incense. Enduring the pain, she hurriedly took out all the topographic maps of the sleepy dragon seal that she had drawn before comparing them one by one, and also identifying the order.
What she had never seen before, she would draw again.
Mo Ce was the first to notice that something was wrong with her, her face was pale, the hair on her forehead was wet, and she kept covering her hands, “What’s wrong with you?”
Lmao Mo Ce is actually kind of adorable, not Wanyu tier but protective of MC haha.
