The corner of Qian Wanyu’s mouth twitched into a smile. It turned out that she always felt that there was something missing in the sixty-four topographic maps given by Ninth Sister, and it turned out that it was because of the time changing the labyrinth layout.
“If it’s really based on sixty-four palace maps, there are a total of twelve hours in a day. It’s impossible to change so often. That’s not right.” Qing Mo calculated three hours in the Sea of Souls. Finally, he said, “He’s deliberately misleading you, the time changes are not two hours at all.”
Qian Wanyu had completely mastered the law of time while crossing this terrain. She silently followed behind the false Jing Ke, witnessing the change in the distance. “If my mother were here, maybe she could recognize this person.”
“No, you’ve forgotten an important thing.” Qing Mo had to remind her, “You and your mother look so similar, if he really had met your mother, what he said just now was to test you, to see if the Dragon Seal is in your hands. If he has never seen your mother, even if she came, he may not know her. It can be seen that he is likely the person hiding behind the scenes. The most important thing is, what happened to your mother in this Dragon Valley?”
After what Qing Mo said, Qian Wanyu had to put all her energy into dealing with this seemingly easy-to-handle but secretly scheming person in front of her.
Fake Jing Ke’s brows and eyes widened as he joked, “Maybe it’s one of the long-lost people. Take it easy, this place is relatively safe; there won’t be any monsters coming.”
After hearing his words, Qian Wanyu became even more vigilant. She smelled a bloody scent, but fortunately, it was not too strong; at least, compared to her body, it was considered light.
“Shall we go in and have a look together?”
The fake Jing Ke revealed that once his disguise was put down, his whole person became unrestrained, seemingly casual about everything.
Qian Wanyu’s fingers lingered on the handle of the whip, ready to unleash the weapon if something abnormal happened. She stepped half a step into a dark hole like the person in front of her and soon saw a figure hiding in the innermost part.
“It’s me.” Mo Ce’s voice was weak, and the sword in his hand clanged, making a sound.
Qian Wanyu laid a few moonstones in different positions one after another so that they could gather light together well. Only then did she see the situation in the cave clearly. There were two holes in the cave, which looked like some kind of monster’s nest. The strange thing was that there was nothing in the nest, and the dark bloodstains extended from where they were standing to Mo Ce.
“Oh, it really is your lost friend.” A coldness flashed in Jia Jing Ke’s eyes, as he still remembered that this brat had hindered him in doing many things.
If he wanted to settle accounts, now is the best time.
Qian Wanyu felt a fierce murderous intent emanating from False Jing Ke’s body, and there was a purple halo circulating on the outer layer of the whip in her hand as if to say, if you touch him, our deal is over.
“How could he be here?”
Mo Ce also didn’t like fake Jing Ke. If it weren’t for the four of them going on the road together, he really wished he could stay away from this person. The veins in his hand were twitching violently,
False Jing Ke managed to bring up a smile at the corner of his mouth. “You haven’t seen each other for a long time; you should have a lot to say. I’ll keep watch outside for you.”
After speaking, he walked out first.
Qian Wanyu watched his back disappear and waited for the sound of footsteps to move a certain distance away before she relaxed. She walked over to Mo Ce and whispered, “You are seriously injured.”
Mo Ze glanced at her, and his eyes lingered on the bright red-colored part of her body for a while. “You don’t look good either.”
“You’re mistaken; I’m much better than you. This is the blood of monsters.”
“Here, it might be faster to use this to stop the bleeding.” Qian Wanyu was not a pharmacist. She took out a porcelain bottle to stop the bleeding and handed it to Mo Ce, only to find that there was still a black mist rising from his abdomen. “You were hurt by those things?”
Mo Ce followed her gaze. “Accident.”
Qian Wanyu watched coolly from the side as he uncovered layers of wounds, some of which were already festering and looked hideous.
Mo Ce was also a man. He bit a piece of cloth tightly and used his sword to cut all the rotten flesh. He didn’t even hum during the whole process.
“That man must have noticed Mo Ce’s injury just now. I think he left so easily because he saw Mo Ce being attacked by the black mist. If I gave the liquid medicine to Mo Ce at that time, he would definitely know that we have the medicine formula to cure it.”
“At that time, your Ninth Sister will become a target, plus the group of dead Spiritual Masters behind her who are chasing her for the heart of the elves… This will be very troublesome.”
“If I don’t save him, he will die in a few days at the latest.” Qian Wanyu looked at him as a strong man, but she had a heart of cherishing talent. Not to mention, she had been helped by Mo Ce’s father, Cheng Song, who had helped her increase her dark spiritual power. “I need to save him.”
“Hurry up and find your Ninth Sister, then get rid of that person outside.”
Qian Wanyu saw that his arm was still injured and that he couldn’t reach the awkward spot. “Do you need my help?”
Mo Ce glanced at her, opened his mouth, and said, “Aren’t you afraid she might misunderstand?”
Thinking that the Ninth Sister might be jealous, Qian Wanyu was in a good mood and rarely explained. “If she were here, she would clean up the wound herself. Not only would she do it herself, but she would also do it more carefully than anyone else.”
During her time in the mermaid tribe, she had seen that the Ninth Sister was not too fussed, helping the group of mermaids treat their wounds carefully and attentively, making anyone want to hold such a Ninth Sister tightly in their arms.
Thinking about it, Qian Wanyu couldn’t help but show a soft smile.
It was the first time Mo Ce had seen such a soft expression on her face. He couldn’t help but think: can love really make a murderous person soft and gentle?
Qian Wanyu had already taken out clean water from her own space ring, carefully cleaned the wound with a cloth, patiently crushed the pills, applied them to it, and finally bandaged it. As she looked at those wounds, all the voices and smiles of Ninth Sister appeared in her mind.
“We’ll have to find her soon.”
“She’s gone missing?”
Seeing Mo Ce, Qian Wanyu leaned against the wall and chose a clean spot. “Ninth Sister’s pill is very effective. You should take a good rest for two hours before we go on our way.”
Mo Ce smiled and shook his head. “Don’t worry about me; you go first.”
Qian Wanyu frowned slightly and quickly understood what he meant. Mo Ce was smarter than she had imagined. After the black smoke invaded his body, it would continuously devour his spiritual power and vitality. He would lose his spiritual energy soon enough.
“Don’t you want to meet your parents in your lifetime?”
“I do.” Mo Ce had a warm smile in his cold eyes. “But, I’m afraid they are no longer alive?”
Qian Wanyu was stumped by this question. Cheng Song was indeed dead, but Mo Ce’s mother might still have a chance of being alive in this world. However, it was unclear where she was among the elves. There were several levels of probability that she had died. After all, the elves treat their partners very sincerely. When one elf dies, the other elf also wants to be buried with their partner.
“When you took out the things last time, I was thinking that if they were still alive, how could they give you such a precious token of love.” Mo Ce seldom took the initiative to say such long words. When Cheng Feng adopted him, if he couldn’t do what Cheng Feng asked, he would be whipped by Cheng Feng.
What Dongfang Minghui saw at that time was just something that often happened in his daily life. He refused to heal his wounds because once the wounds healed, that person would beat him severely again. But he did not expect that the cute-looking girl would punch him in the abdomen to make him take the pill and put a silver needle in his hand, trying to help him escape from that cage. Unfortunately, a silver needle wouldn’t help him.
In any case, it was the first time he felt warmth from a stranger. Although afterward, Cheng Feng vented all her anger on him because she lost the pill formula and ten pills, he still felt that it was the most memorable day of his life.
Qian Wanyu saw the corners of Mo Ce’s eyes were smiling and couldn’t help thinking that he must have thought of something beautiful.
“Thank you very much for giving me their relics.” Although it was only a transaction, for him, there was nothing more generous than seeing the token of love from his mother and father before he died. At least he could comfort himself, knowing that he was not an orphan abandoned by his parents.
“Mo Ce, your mother may still be alive.” Qian Wanyu frowned slightly. She had seen too many lives and deaths, but she had never been so helpless. From the standpoint of reason, she should inform Mo Ce of his life experience.
Mo Ce shook his head lightly. Even if his mother was still alive, he might not be able to find her anymore.
Every time Jing Ke mentioned the Sleepy Dragon Seal, Mo Ce was worried that Qian Wanyu would really give something to the other party, so he was restless when he was resting.
Qian Wanyu was able to clearly understand what he was thinking, turned her back to the false Jing Ke, poured a little liquid from the porcelain bottle, wrapped it in a cloth, and pressed it on Mo Ce’s abdomen. She shook her head slightly at him and motioned for him to relax.
Mo Ce used the cloth to cover his abdominal wound. He could clearly feel the erosion of the black mist slowing down. He had a slightly strange look and found that there was still a little green spot on the white cloth.
This must be the antidote!
Now, Mo Ce thought about the cause and effect and guessed that Qian Wanyu probably had a purpose in doing this. From the body language of the other party, it could be seen that many things had to be hidden from Jing Ke.
When it was dawn, the false Jing Ke brought the two of them in front of nine caves, pointed to one of the caves, and said, “We’ve arrived at the place, Qian Wanyu, have you figured out where the Dragon Seal is?”
“The Trapped Dragon Seal?” Qian Wanyu sneered, “Why would I have the Trapped Dragon Seal? If I have the Trapped Dragon Seal, would I need you to lead the way? If you want the Trapped Dragon Seal, just continue to lead the way. After entering, maybe you can see it.”
The fake Jing Ke squinted slightly and said aloud, “You are playing with me?”
HAha Wanyu is as sarcastic as ever. What a great FMC.
