“This girl is quite well, not sick at all.” This was the result of several doctors diagnosing her.
As for why she was unconscious, the doctors looked at her for a long time and gave this conclusion, “She’s just got a case of sleepiness which I think is because she’s too tired or she’s overexerted herself.”
Sleepiness? Will that cause you to sleep for 10 days with no reaction?
After sending off a few doctors in succession, Dongfang Wanyu almost smashed her teacup.
“Wanyu, I’ve already assured you, she’s just unconscious because she ran out of spiritual energy.” Qing Mo was about to curse to the heavens.
Dongfang Wanyu picked up a damp handkerchief on the side and resigned herself to gently wiping the sleeping beauty’s face on the bed, and then wiping her hands, then her ten slender fingers, one by one, very attentively, “You have said this no less than ten times, the premise is that even if the spiritual energy of the ninth sister was exhausted, she should’ve woken up by now.”
Qing Mo had never seen a person sleep for such a long time either, he pondered for a moment, “Could it be related to her spiritual attribute?”
Dongfang Wanyu put the handkerchief away and racked her brain for a tiny bit of recollection about Dongfang Minghui’s past, “Previously in the Dongfang Family, Ninth Sister’s spiritual awakening was considered to be the earliest, and after that, because her attributes were not within the ten systems, she wasn’t focused on for cultivation by the family, it’s probably because of that that she acted so spoilt and never cultivated.” It seemed that some of their experiences were actually somewhat similar.
“Could it be related to the magic plant she contracted?”
The two people who didn’t know much about wood system properties were taking wild guesses.
Dongfang Minghui had never had a good night’s sleep when she was in the Beast Forest, due to her fear. After a few days of sleep, she felt quite comfortable, but her body couldn’t move, she could feel people coming and going around her, occasionally hearing the Female Protagonist but she just couldn’t respond to the sound of her speaking voice.
She couldn’t open her eyes and could only shout to her little friend in her head, “Little Colour, Little. Colour, get up now.”
In the battle with Mu Qing, she thought that Little Colour had died, but then she thought about it for more and realised that they had a blood contract and as long as she didn’t die, Little Colour would be fine.
But still Little Colour remained motionless.
Dongfang Minghui waited and waited, until one day she went crazy, “Little Colour! You’re a useless magic plant, and you still claim to be the king of the Beast Forest? One little Great Spiritualist could crush you so easily and you can still blow up yourself until reaching heaven?! Hmph!”
Words like this disparaging Little Colour were said no less than a million times, so much so that her mouth went dry.
“Okay, can you just let me practice in peace.” Little Colour’s extremely feeble voice suddenly interrupted her shattered thoughts.
Dongfang Minghui immediately hugged her head and cried, “Arghhhh, what should we do, I can’t wake up!”
“When do you plan to leave for the Royal Academy?”
One early morning, Dongfang Wanyu was giving Dongfang Minghui a simple grooming, and Qing Mo suddenly asked.
Seeing that the Royal Academy’s annual enrollment was about to start, and they were still staying inside a remote small countryside in the Venus Empire and neither cultivating nor asking about the outside world, he didn’t even know what Wanyu was thinking of doing.
“Don’t forget what you should be doing.” Qing Mo said and sank back into silence.
Dongfang Wanyu sat on the edge of the bed and picked up Dongfang Minghui’s hand to play with, Dongfang Minghui’s hands were very delicate, white and clean, with smooth skin, but she had two calluses on her palms, and it felt a little rough to the touch. It’s a little stiff, but and probably newly acquired from these few months. “If you don’t wake up, Seventh sister is going to… leave you behind.”
The two of them had gotten along with each other all the way away from home to the Purple Devil Mountain Range for two to three months, and during those two to three months, Dongfang Minghui had been careful to please her at every turn, she could feel it.
If she hadn’t gone through these experiences, she would have definitely left Dongfang Minghui alone on the road, not caring if she was dead or alive.
But the Ninth Sister who had grabbed her hands in a death grip and mumbled about not leaving her before she passed out actually made her feel a bit hard to put down.
“We’ve been in Ning Yuan County for a full half month, and you’ve been sleeping for more than half a month, I’ve never seen a girl as sleepy as you are. If you continue to be so unruly, I’ll have to have someone send you back to the Dongfang family.”
“Seventh sister, don’t leave me.”
Dongfang Minghui suddenly opened her eyes and grabbed the Female Protagonist’s hand, holding it tightly with almost all her strength.
Seeing her wake up, Dongfang Wanyu’s face was happy, her smile widened and she patted the back of her hand lightly, “Seventh sister was joking. I’ve got a carriage ready. If you hadn’t woken up I was going to put you in the carriage and drag you to the Royal Academy, I wouldn’t leave you behind.”
It was only after hearing the Female Protagonist explain this that her entire body relaxed.
Dongfang Minghui was paralyzed on the bed, and it took a lot of effort to sit up with the Female Protagonist’s help.
“Seventh sister, I need the stamens of ten red peonies, the roots of three purple grass, and five umbrella-shaped plants, can you help me find them?”
Dongfang Wanyu couldn’t help but ask more as she looked at her unhappy appearance, “Is it to restore your pet’s spiritual energy?”
She nodded, if it wasn’t for Little Colour giving some of the Purple Cloud Fruit’s aura to her, she was afraid that she would have to continue sleeping, slumbering until Little Colour woke up from cultivation.
This useless and powerless feeling was too unbearable.
Dongfang Minghui handed over her bag to the Female Protagonist, and also let the Female Protagonist help her pawn all her jewellery.
Minghui and Female Protagonist are so cute aren’t they? :^)
