Dongfang Minghui thought the Female Protagonist’s brain had broken. Experiencing beautiful dreams? Wasn’t it meant to be experiencing nightmares?
She stroked her forehead, later on when the Female Protagonist left, she wanted to have a good talk with the Love Flower about this unfairness.
Thinking of the person in front of her, Dongfang Wanyu couldn’t help but take back her smile again and continued to apply medicine to her thighs, Dongfang Minghui shuddered, she was actually a little afraid of the itch.
“Seventh sister tell me, what was your beautiful dream like?” Dongfang Minghui was curious. No wonder the Female Protagonist was trapped for so long, if she also had a beautiful dream, she would definitely be reluctant to wake up.
Thinking about it this way, that sort of illusion was really terrifying, no matter if it was a nightmare or a beautiful dream, they were both testing one’s mind, and the slightest mistake would be doom and gloom.
“You just rest well and don’t think about nonsense.”
Dongfang Wanyu helped her apply the medicine, then left her with some advice.
Dongfang Minghui didn’t dare to retort, so she fell back straight down on the bed, “Love Flower, why did Seventh sister say she was experiencing a beautiful dream?”
Love Flower emerged from the space ring, “She probably encountered a dream as dangerous as a nightmare.”
It didn’t really know so it just gave a vague response.
Dongfang Minghui had a good night’s sleep and it was dawn before she had woken up, all soothed. The three of them packed up and left straight back to the city.
It was only when they returned to Snow Capital that Dongfang Minghui’s heart settled down.
“Are you guys going straight back to the Royal Academy or are you going to follow me to my house as guests?” Situ Hao actually kinda liked the two sisters.
Dongfang Minghui waved her hand, “I have to go shopping.”
She swore she was going to get a fancy space ring, but she cried when she felt her pocket.
Dongfang Wanyu saw the tangle on her face, “Let’s go, I need to buy you a belt.”
She felt very insecure when she looked at the other’s loose belt, and made up her mind to go back to the academy after shopping, or else it would probably be a month before she came out again next time.
Dongfang Minghui snuck a glance at her, she could sense that the other person was still in a good mood, did this mean that she had already gotten what was inside the cave?
“What did you just say you wanted to buy?” Dongfang Wanyu suddenly asked.
She scratched her head and looked embarrassed, “Seventh sister, I just remembered that I don’t seem to need to buy it anymore.”
“What is it?”
Dongfang Minghui coughed dryly, “Actually, it’s like this, that gift that Seventh sister gave me before, that egg, it takes up too much space, plus there’s Love Flower as well this time, I think my space ring is a bit insufficient to put everything in, so I wanted to buy a-”
She suddenly made the tragic discovery that she was so poor she didn’t even have a single coin!
Dongfang Minghui’s mouth was left wide open, she was a daughter worth a thousand taels of gold, but in the end, she didn’t even have a single penny now. This matter was so humiliating, she was almost embarrassed to say it.
“Why don’t you want to buy it.” Dongfang Wanyu couldn’t help but reach out and touch her head when she saw her hanging her head.
“I didn’t bring any money out.”
Dongfang Wanyu smiled, “You little fool, don’t you usually make a lot of pills? If you set up a stall inside the Royal Academy, you’ll get a lot of spirit stones, and spirit stones can buy whatever you want in the outside world.”
“Right.” Dongfang Minghui slapped her head so hard that her eyes lit up, “I forgot about that.”
She calculated then she suddenly realized that she was still a rich woman, Dongfang Minghui secretly wondered if she should take out some of the pills and stuff she had found in the cave and put them up for auction.
When Dongfang Wanyu saw the bad smile on her face, she found it amusing and didn’t point it out to her, “Forget it, let’s just go back today.”
Walking around the Snow Capital with Love Flower in tow, there was probably no one else but her idiot ninth sister who could do this.
“Well, Seventh sister let’s go see the Dean first.”
They returned to the pharmacy and went to the dean’s office together.
“You’re back at last, how was the trip?” The smile on the chubby old man’s face was all piled up, he hadn’t dared to believe it when Hao’er had come to say speak to him before.
The moment Dongfang Minghui saw the dean’s face piled up with smiles till it looked like he had many chins, she immediately knew he had bad intentions, “Dean, there’s something to declare beforehand.”
“It’s about Love Flower?”
Dongfang Minghui nodded, “I promised the Love Flower that I wouldn’t give it to anyone, it must follow me. As for the seeds mentioned before, it’s also offering one for Nan Fei’s leg.”
The Dean immediately frowned as he stroked in his beard, “Did you think of this condition yourself? Or did it ask for it?”
“Naturally, it asked for it, otherwise how could it follow me back.” Dongfang Minghui was also concerned about her little life, Love Flower had made a big statement before saying that if she dared to betray it the Love Flower would poison her to death!
It could even resist the aura of death, obviously, Love Flower was a particularly strong plant, she couldn’t help but shiver just thinking about it.
The headmaster paced around the office with his hands behind his back, looking at Dongfang Minghui every now and then.
Dongfang Minghui hair stood up from all the glances and she really didn’t know what the chubby old man was considering.
“Little Minghui ah.”
“Can I have another seed?” The dean squinted and asked carefully, he extended a chubby hungry finger, “Just one more.”
Dongfang Minghui was dumbfounded, “Dean what do you need a love flower seed for?”
“Just tell me if you can.”
She gave a quick thieving roll of her eyes, “I can’t make a decision on that, I have to ask Love Flower before I can answer you.”
Dongfang Wanyu was tickled at the sight of her little fox-like look, she loved her when she acted like this.
The chubby old man rubbed his hands, “Then can you ask it for me.”
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes blinked at him for a while, “Love Flower doesn’t want to see you guys for now!”
Dongfang Wanyu was also curious to see that there was another plant in the world that was so proud. Although there was something to be said that the Love Flower species was indeed a coveted medicinal plant. It was the only thing in the world that could resist the aura of death.
“Dean, I’ve never seen the true appearance of the Love Flower either.” Dongfang Wanyu’s words showed that she really didn’t mean to target the dean, but that for normal people, the Love Flower, unfortunately, didn’t give a damn about them
The dean touched his forehead, rubbing his beard, slightly irritated, “Little Minghui, go back and help me. Ask it, just ask it to provide me a seed, the terms are whatever it wants.”
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes widened a little more, just great, that was all she needed…
They returned to the small courtyard and Dongfang Minghui immediately moved Love Flower out of the space ring.
“This small courtyard, you like it, right?”
Dongfang Minghui squatted down and pointed out the beautiful geranium that had sprouted a flower head, and some other medicinal plants, not many, just twenty or so.
After Love Flower made a domineering tour around the garden, it soon found a place to settle, and it pointed to the location of Blue Star Dream, “I’ll stay next to it! Okay?”
After saying that, not even needing her hands to help, it moved over and rooted itself.
Dongfang Minghui was baffled, why did all of them pick this inconspicuous nook, before Little Colour also said that there was something in this courtyard, she felt that there was, perhaps, really something.
Dongfang Wanyu stood by the side, surprised for a long time, this plant had cultivated quite a unique character, right?
“Love Flower, you heard what the dean said just now, right?” She moved over and squatted right next to Blue Star Dream to talk to it.
Love Flower was completely disrespectful, “It takes a hundred years for me to bloom and bear fruit once, I’ve had a hard time just having three, and I’ve agreed to give one to you as well.”
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes fell out of their sockets as she wiggled her fingers, by this calculation, the other party was at least three or four hundred years old.
A seed took a hundred years of cultivation. She suddenly felt that those legs of Nan Fei’s were quite valuable!
“It’s fine if you don’t want to, I’ll go back to the dean and you can settle down here.”
Love Flower was satisfied that the other party didn’t reach out for a mile after getting an inch, shaking a bit and turning into a beautiful geranium then turning to its quiet neighbor, Blue Star Dream.
Dongfang Wanyu wouldn’t have recognized the beautiful geranium was actually Love Flower if she hadn’t been observing it, she wasn’t sure what Love Flower and Ninth Sister had talked about, but she could tell from the other party’s demeanor that the request the dean had made earlier was probably rejected.
“Ninth sister, you, me, the dean and Situ Hao are the only ones who know about Love Flower, don’t reveal it to anyone else.” Dongfang Wanyu warned in a low voice.
“Okay, I got it.” Seeing everyone’s cautious expressions, she suddenly felt as if she had brought back a hot potato.
Even the Dean just wanted a single seed and was willing to exchange it for anything. It must be quite a valuable thing!
“Minghui, Wanyu, you’re back.”
As soon as they finished speaking, they saw Nan Nan pushing Nan Fei in.
Dongfang Wanyu nodded towards them and said in a rare and amicable manner, “The Love Flower seeds have arrived, your brother’s leg will be fine soon.”
“Really?” Nan Fei had a smile on his face.
Nan Nan happily took both of their hands and said, “Really? Did you really get a Love Flower seed?”
“Yes, I will discuss with the dean about how to diagnose and treat you, you just need to take good care of your big brother.” Dongfang Minghui patted her hand reassuringly.
Afterward, Yong Xing told Dongfang Minghui that during the few days she was away, Nan Nan was the one who took care of the medicinal plants and hygiene in the courtyard, and that on weekdays she just pushed her brother around the Dean’s courtyard for a walk and nowhere else.
Dongfang Minghui nodded, she guessed that Nan Nan really wanted to repay the kindness, but the object of this kindness was not right!
What can we do about this?
When she robbed one of the Female Protagonist’s men in the original plot it just ended up with her dead, if she robbed one of the people that was supposed to be her little brother as well, Dongfang Minghui wouldn’t be able to sleep at night.
Everything’s easy to rob on this continent, everything except the Female Protagonist’s stuff those all can’t be robbed…
Dongfang Minghui tossed and turned, thinking about it all night.
“I have to close up for some time.” Dongfang Wanyu mentioned the next day, early in the morning.
“Is there anything you need me to do?” Dongfang Minghui already knew the other party was a cultivation fanatic, let alone the Female Protagonist just got back from Death Valley, there should be a lot for her to research.
Dongfang Wanyu touched her head, “Just take care of yourself and don’t let me worry about you.”
Dongfang Minghui always felt that something wasn’t quite right about this gesture, and nodded without thinking about it.
For a long time after that, Dongfang Minghui was busy in the dean’s office, refining medicinal plants and taking all the medicinal plants that Nan Fei needed out of from the back of the mountain, she got really busy.
“Little girl, little Minghui ask the love flower again, let it give me a seed, I will compensate it.” Humpty Dumpty Old Man was constantly sticking behind Dongfang Minghui.
After all, he still wanted the Love Flower seed.
“Old man, Love Flower only blooms and bears fruit once every hundred years, what do you think you can compensate it with?” Dongfang Minghui was bored to death. If it wasn’t for Nan Fei’s legs, she would have found a place to hide out in peace.
The Love Flower had seen all the human emotions after hundreds of years, its mind was very developed, she sometimes felt that this plant’s mind was even brighter than hers, although it was a bit shocking to think so.
The chubby old man blew his beard in anger, “There’s really no way at all?”
Dongfang Minghui answered without even thinking about it.
The old man grumbled, “Hmph, if you don’t get me a love flower seed, I won’t save this person.”
“Hey, hey, old man how can you go back on your word, you can’t just burn the bridge like that.” Dongfang Minghui was out of breath, she really had never seen such a stubborn person before.
She turned her back in anger, but in her heart she was wondering, seeing that Nan Fei’s legs were hopefully saved, if this old man really didn’t save her, how would she explain to them ah.
The stubby old man saw that she was really angry, immediately softening his tone, “Hey hey, little girl are you angry? I take back what I said. I’m just desperate since I really need one of the Love Flower’s seeds. You should know that the Love Flower is the only kind of thing that can resist the aura of death. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be so many people going to Death Valley without fear of death just to catch it.”
Dongfang Minghui’s heart was bleeding, daring her to go and take the Love Flower actually this dean’s personal agenda, no wonder the other party made Situ Hao follow her, she felt like she was being jointly pitied.
“Then you can wait another hundred years.”
Humpty Dumpty Old Man: “……..”
“A hundred years later, the love flower will definitely bloom and bear fruit again, then I can talk to it properly and maybe it’ll give you one of its seeds.”
What Dongfang Minghui said was reasonable. But she had forgotten that a hundred years later would she still be in this place?
Once again, the fat old man returned without success.
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t help but sputter at heart, hmph, giving you Love Flower’s seed, isn’t it just going to be used against the Female Protagonist later?
With all the medicinal plants ready, Dongfang Minghui and Humpty Dumpty Old Man discussed the exact day to treat Nan Fei.
“Tomorrow we’ll start, you tell them to prepare properly today.” The dean was still the same dean, he would only become abnormal when facing the love flower.
Dongfang Minghui nodded and went back to knock on Nan Fei’s door.
She took a look and Nan Nan was actually not there, “Big Brother Nan, where did Nan Nan go?”
“Nan Nan said she has some business over at the alchemy academy, she’ll be back in a few minutes.”
She entered the room and pushed Nan Fei into the courtyard, and poured him a cup of spiritual liquid, “Brother Nan, drink it, and replenish your spiritual energy, tomorrow we’ll start.”
The spirit liquid she made was according to the method given to her by Situ Hao when she got bored after returning, she made some of it herself, watering a little for the medicinal plants in the yard on weekdays, and they were very cheerful.
Nan Fei sniffed gently and knew that the other party had given something good. He smiled and said, “This thing should be of great value. Qian girl has treated us so well. I don’t know how to repay your kindness in the future.”
Dongfang Minghui blinked, “Nan Nan is my friend, Brother Nan Fei you’re speaking like an outsider. If you really want to repay me, it’s better to cooperate well for the treatment, then Nan Nan will be better off as well.”
Nan Fei smiled and nodded, “Miss Qian is right, I’m not as good at seeing the bigger picture as you are.”
Only when you’re better yourself can you make the people around you better.
Nan Fei drank all of the spirit liquid in one gulp and soon felt the spiritual energy start to run into his organs all the way to the bottom of his heart.
“Mmm.” He grabbed the handle of the wheelchair with a painful expression.
Dongfang Minghui was shocked, reacting quickly.
She immediately pushed Nan Fei, who was in the wheelchair and ran inside the dean’s office.
Along the way, Yong Xing saw it and immediately came to help, “Yong Xing, you should go and inform the dean, his reaction to the situation is even more severe than we thought!”
Dongfang Minghui also wondered, “Who exactly have you offended? Such a cruel method.”
As soon as he applied his body’s spiritual energy, he was in excruciating pain, no wonder the two people before thought that it was the result of Nan Fei’s own cultivation deviating.
Nan Fei smiled bitterly, the other party didn’t want his life but ruined his entire cultivation, this person, he kind of knew who it was.
“Miss Qian don’t worry, I’m fine.”
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t help but give him a thumbs up, this is still called fine.
“It’s better to let the dean take a look, he’ll start the treatment today if he thinks you’re ready to proceed.”
She gave him a precautionary shot in advance.
Dean’s chubby form soon appeared in front of the two, he picked up Nan Fei’s wrist and prodded it, he couldn’t help but stare at Dongfang Minghui looked at him, “I told you to give him some medicinal plants, why did you give him a bottle of elixir, you think he’s lived for too long ah?”
The dean beckoned for Yong Xing to carry the man to the bed that was already prepared.
“Yong Xing you guard outside the door, don’t let anyone come in and disturb us.”
Dongfang Minghui watched as the dean stuffed the pill they had been concocting for days into Nan Fei’s mouth, a pill that contained the essence of the Love Flower Seed, which was extremely poisonous.
She watched as Nan Fei’s face instantly turned blue then purple, his entire face looking particularly terrifying.
Nan Fei clenched his lips till they bled but did not utter a word.
“The Love Flower Poison can really suppress the poison he was previously poisoned with.” She couldn’t believe the existence of attacking poison with poison, this sort of method…weren’t they afraid of accidentally being overly poisoned and directly dying?
The headmaster disgustedly pushed her outside, “You just stand in the corner, shut up, and don’t disturb me.”
Then Dongfang Minghui witnessed the bloody brutality, she covered her mouth and watched as the dean knocked all of Nan Fei’s legs and leg bones off.
She watched Nan Fei struggle in pain, it was all a bit too much for her heart to bear. After that, she then saw the dean straining to pick up his leg bones little by little with his spiritual energy, the process was very slow.
She even saw sweat dripping down from the dean’s forehead.
These three days and three nights of treatment were a kind of torture for all three of them, both mental and physical.
After everything was over, the first thing Dongfang Minghui asked was, “Dean, why did you break it first? For his legs, didn’t you say before that they were just blocked?”
Breaking someone’s leg had caused more damage to the patient, and if Nan Fei wasn’t strong enough, the treatment probably wouldn’t have been successful.
“Both of his legs have been disabled for so long, not allowing them to grow back to what they once were. He’d have a handicap for life if he tried to cultivate in the future. I’m setting it right before then, what do you know little girl, go back and have a good rest.”
Dongfang Minghui nodded her head seeming to understand but not really.
“Minghui, how is my big brother?” Nan Nan was anxiously waiting, having been held back outside the door before.
“Don’t worry, the dean said it’s fine.” She patted the other person, “I’m going to go back and rest, you go check on him, it won’t be long before he wakes up.”
Dongfang Minghui went back to her place, and without saying a word, she just fell into bed and went to sleep. In her sleep, she always felt that something was bothering her, a little itchy feeling, also a little sweet and fragrant.
She couldn’t resist smacking her lips.
Mmmm Minghui x Wanyu coming right up!
