Li Yunan looked at the two of them, “Since Little Sister can see that I have hidden wounds, she must be someone with some skill, so I’ll be honest with you. I have an uncle who loved me since I was a child, and he’s now at the cultivation of Spiritual Monarch but due to a hidden wound, he has remained there for thirty years and is now very old, if he still can’t make a breakthrough, his life expectancy will come to an end, I’d like to ask little sister you to take a look at my uncle for me.”
Most of their clan, who had awakened the lightning spirit, often had to come into contact with lightning, and over time, they would have hidden wounds on their bodies. This kind of injury was also different from other people’s hidden wounds. Finding the lightning essence in the lightning was actually quite a dangerous thing to do, and if you weren’t careful, you could be struck by lightning strikes. Their hidden wounds were mostly accompanied by residual lightning that tormented them from time to time.
Dongfang Minghui hadn’t expected his casual remark to reveal a secret about Li Yunan’s history, bringing her to attention. If she had any advantage in this world, she at least knew the script in advance.
The Marrow Cleansing Pill she had refined had indeed worked for him, only after using a Marrow Cleansing Pill, Li Yunan found that his stagnant spiritual energy had loosened, and that was a good sign.
He had recently turned to the alchemy academy for help for his hidden injuries, hoping that they could refine a pill to suppress his hidden injuries, unfortunately, the results they gave were far from satisfactory. In recent years, the hidden wounds on his body had been increasing, and his spiritual energy was not moving, Li Yunan thought that he would soon be stepping into his uncle’s footsteps, he didn’t expect an unexpected surprise just three days ago.
Dongfang Minghui was dumbfounded, pointed to her nose, and asked incredulously, “You want me to go see your uncle!?”
Li Yunan nodded, then said, “Little sister I know you’re in a difficult situation, but for my uncle’s sake, I’ll pay any price.”
Don’t pay any price, she didn’t want to get involved with Li Yunan at all, she pulled out a porcelain vase inside her space ring then thought for half a second before taking a pill out of the vase, “Marrow Washing Pill, last bottle, fifty spirit stones, do you want it?”
Li Yunan didn’t know if to laugh or cry from her action, he pondered for a moment, “Little sister, my uncle’s situation is not the same as mine.”
Dongfang Minghui impatiently shook the porcelain vase in her hand, “Do you want it?”
Li Yunan immediately transferred over the fifty spirit stones, “Little Sister, my uncle’s situation is really different from mine, could you consider again? Any condition is fine.”
“Alright, Brother Li, Ninth Sister will consider it, don’t push her.”
Dongfang Wanyu stopped Li Yunan and looked at him very seriously.
She hid behind the Female Protagonist and nodded, it was a very unpleasant thing to be pestered by someone, especially if it was the Female Protagonist’s man.
Li Yunan knew that he was also too anxious and took a step back, “Well, I hope little sister can seriously consider my proposal, any request you have, if I can do it I’ll do it.”
Li Yunan’s favor, if it were a bystander they would have already jumped on it and grabbed it, but Dongfang Minghui was the only one who was afraid and wanted to desperately refuse. Even Dongfang Wanyu couldn’t see through her Ninth Sister’s thoughts.
On the way back, Dongfang Wanyu couldn’t help but mention, “Ninth Sister, before did you have a problem with Senior Brother Li?”
“No no, just that any person who got their hands on your man wouldn’t end up well.” Is what Dongfang Minghui wanted to say. But of course, she didn’t speak it out loud, “No, I have met him a few times in general. Don’t you know Seventh sister?”
It was only when she saw Female Protagonist’s face didn’t change that she had the nerve to say, “I simply don’t like him, just that.”
Dongfang Wanyu gave her a puzzled look she had no idea why her Ninth Sister not only disliked him but seemed to hate him as well.
“You should think about this matter of his uncle today.”
Dongfang Minghui nodded, since Female Protagonist had asked her to consider it, she really needed to mull it over.
The next day, Dongfang Minghui was practicing her flying leaf shooting when she suddenly heard a howl.
“It hurts, it hurts.”
She searched for the painful howl before realizing that it was coming from the tree she was targeting.
“I’m sorry sorry.” Dongfang Minghui said sorry one after another, and she immediately took out a bottle of elixir from her spatial ring. “Take this as compensation.”
She channeled some of the liquid into its wounds and the other part directly into its roots.
“Why didn’t you pay attention to me when I was talking to you before.” Dongfang Minghui was frustrated, she had thought the tree had no spiritual sense.
The wounds on the trunk quickly recovered from the infusion of the spirit liquid, and the old tree’s roots absorbed all of it, and it shook it’s leaves, “There was a scary person before, how dare I speak?”
A scary person?
Dongfang Minghui looked around, “You mean my Seventh sister?”
The tree trunk shook as an answer, “She has the scent of death on her, that thing is our nemesis, one touch and we die.”
Luckily, this old tree mistook her for a kindred spirit, Dongfang Minghui sighed, thinking, Female Protagonist is too careless if this hidden spiritual energy can’t be covered up… Wouldn’t she start a storm in the Royal Academy and then provoke the entire Seven Colored Continent to hunt her down?
The point is, as the Female Protagonist’s Ninth Sister, she’d definitely be the first to suffer.
“You smell nice, I’ll let you sit on my branch.” The old tree stretched out a branch directly and placed Dongfang Minghui easily on the trunk, it pointed to the Forbidden Zone behind, “There’s a lot of good stuff in that place.”
Dongfang Minghui was still thinking about how to hide the aura on the Female Protagonist’s body. She was worried and listening to the tree’s words she asked, “Great Tree, how did you sense the hidden power?”
The tree shook as if in thought, before responding to her for a long time, “Long ago, this place had this death aura before, that last time when that big demon brought you here, I was going to save you. But I didn’t think you’d be harmed by her.”
Dongfang Minghui patted it lightly, thinking to herself that the tree was quite righteous, “Don’t worry, I won’t let her hurt you.”
Besides, as long as you don’t piss off Seventh sister, there probably won’t be any blood and bodies scene, right? Dongfang Minghui thought uncertainly.
“What are you doing?” Dongfang Wanyu had gone to the Master of Thunder Hall’s place and when she got back she saw this naughty girl slacking off!
Dongfang Minghui was frightened by the sudden sound and fell directly from the tree, seeing that she was about to make close contact with the ground.
Strangely the tree, as soon as it saw Dongfang Wanyu, really played dead, it’s promptly stretched out branch froze in mid-air.
“Can’t you be more careful?” Dongfang Wanyu easily caught the person and landed safely on the ground.
“Seventh sister, don’t make sudden noises next time, you’ll scare people to death.” Dongfang Minghui slapped her chest, she was thinking about the Female Protagonist’s thing then the Female Protagonist just popped up and it had the feeling of being guilty and getting caught by the owner.
“As soon as I don’t supervise you, you get lazy.”
Dongfang Minghui threw her hands up in surrender, “I don’t think it’s very good to cut down trees, I’d better practice trying to cut a stone instead, Seventh sister, what do you think?”
Dongfang Wanyu looked at her smilingly for a long time before saying, “Very well, go and bring a stone.”
Dongfang Minghui instantly burst into tears, the tree was not easy to cut, let alone stone.
When Dongfang Minghui went far away, Dongfang Wanyu circled around the old tree, all traces of the previous flying leaves cut out had disappeared without a trace, she smiled and patted the tree.
The tree shook twice after she left.
Dongfang Minghui didn’t want to hurt the tree so she found a big rock instead, did she want to use a leaf to cut this thing open? Her mouth was twitching just thinking about it…
Dongfang Wanyu was watching her from the sidelines, the corners of her mouth quirked in a smile.
The stone was harder than the trunk of a tree, Dongfang Minghui had practiced for a day and there was no sign of anything on the surface of the stone, she couldn’t help but cover her face, it really was a case of lifting a stone and hitting her own feet.
“Skills are not meant to be acquired overnight, let’s take our time, Seventh sister will be with you.” Dongfang Wanyu couldn’t help but comfort her.
“Okay, we’ll continue tomorrow.”
Dongfang Minghui patted her chest and peeked into her space ring, suddenly remembering Toothless, “Toothless?”
“Did Toothless come with you?”
Dongfang Wanyu was pretty sure she hadn’t seen the little guy when she arrived.
“Yeah, it wouldn’t have been carried away, would it?” Dongfang Minghui was worried that Toothless was too young and can’t talk and it also had no combat ability.
Dongfang Minghui was in a bit of a hurry, but she forced herself to calm down, she thought about how the little guy was still around her feet when she was practicing her flying leaf shooting at the tree earlier.
When the tree made some noise, she got distracted and was speaking to it she had thought the little one followed but he actually disappeared!
“Seventh sister, what to do?”
Dongfang Wanyu looked at her face that was on the verge of tears, “Don’t worry, we’ll look for it.”
The two split up and Dongfang Minghui saw Dongfang Wanyu heading towards another place. As soon as she went away to look for it, she immediately hugged the tree, “Tree, tell me where Toothless has run off to play.”
The tree’s stiff branches immediately drooped, Damn, the demon was just there and it didn’t dare to move a muscle, “It went to the other side the place before where I said there’s a lot of good stuff.”
The other side? Where’s that place?
Dongfang Minghui took a look in the direction it was pointing, wanting to faint to death, isn’t the place the tree was pointing at the restricted area of the Royal Academy?
“Are you sure, big tree?” Dongfang Minghui wanted to cry, what’s Toothless doing in a forbidden place?
When Dongfang Wanyu came back, she saw Dongfang Minghui’s unrecognizable face. Sitting on the floor, she looked like she was out of it, “Ninth Sister, what’s the matter with you?”
“Toothless ran off into the forbidden zone, Seventh sister, what to do?”
Dongfang Wanyu was so sure of this that she didn’t ask her how she could be so sure, “Go back first and think of something.”
Dongfang Minghui had already decided that if Toothless could still come back in one piece, she would use a chain to lock it up and take it wherever she went, never to let it run wild again.
“Wanyu, are you sure you want to break into the forbidden area, if the Royal Academy finds out, the consequences would be unthinkable, have you ever thought about that?”
“When did you become so cowardly, Qing Mo, since it’s a forbidden area, it must have something to do with the secret of the Royal Academy, maybe in the forbidden area, we can find the answers we want to find. In any case, I need to break into this forbidden place eventually.”
“Alright.” Qing Mo was convinced by her line of thought.
Dongfang Wanyu had wanted to trespass the forbidden area alone before as part of her plan, if she saw that little thing Toothless, she’d just take it along and bring it back with her. But as soon as she opened the door, she saw Dongfang Minghui sitting in her doorway.
“Seventh sister, I’m going too.” Dongfang Minghui was unusually determined this time.
The Forbidden Area was one of the great secrets of the Royal Academy, it had existed for hundreds of years, and anyone who entered the Royal Academy would try to find out what was going on, but they all ended up coming back in vain.
Dongfang Wanyu thought for a moment before agreeing as they both headed to the Forbidden Zone.
Dongfang Wanyu was feeling a little annoyed when they arrived. As she had expected, there was a formation outside the Forbidden Zone, and anything that came near it would be discovered.
“Are you sure Toothless ran in there?” Dongfang Wanyu asked again.
Dongfang Minghui also asked the surrounding plants, they mentioned that just in the afternoon, they did see a little guy crawling through a dog-sized hole.
“Yes, you see, there are still its little paw prints near the hole.” Dongfang Minghui crouched down and pointed to a hole not far away, and every time she gave Toothless a shower and was familiar with his size and claw marks so naturally, she recognized it at once.
“Qing Mo, I’m going to trouble you for this part.”
Dongfang Minghui saw a wisp of white mist floating out from Dongfang Wanyu’s space ring, what was presented in front of the formation was a very handsome man, dressed in a blue coat, the clothes seemed a bit familiar, with the logo of Qing Lan Sect on it, his black hair was bound only with a jade hairpin, he looked a bit otherworldly and aloof.
Qing Mo, she had finally seen a strand of his remaining soul today.
“I will hold out for half an hour at most, whether or not you find Toothless, you must come out.”
Qing Mo was good at laying out and undoing formations.
Dongfang Minghui pretended to look frightened and was pulled straight into the forbidden area by Dongfang Wanyu, the forbidden area at night exuded a strange atmosphere.
As soon as the two of them stepped foot inside, they heard crunching noises and Dongfang Minghui was too frightened to move.
With that being the case, how could Dongfang Wanyu feel comfortable splitting up to find Toothless, she whispered, “Can you feel the presence of Toothless?”
Dongfang Minghui asked Little Colour in her head, “Little Colour, I need your help now, quick, can you help me feel Toothless’ presence?”
She stayed with Toothless all the time, with more or less a bit of Toothless’ feeling around her, she wasn’t sure what the little guy had encountered all the way in. Plus, outside Qing Mo mentioned that he could only hold on for half an hour at most.
Dongfang Minghui felt that finding Toothless in such a dark place was undoubtedly a needle in a haystack.
Little Colour immediately gave directions, the vine pointed, and Dongfang Minghui immediately tugged on the Female Protagonist’s sleeve, “Go this way.”
The two of them walked around seven times to a quiet little loft that was exactly the same style as the complex’s courtyard office, with a few large trees outside, and Dongfang Minghui thought she had gone the wrong way when she saw it.
Dongfang Wanyu took a big step and walked straight in. Dongfang Minghui sensing the direction of Little Colour’s vine had to walk a little further inside, so she had no choice but to follow.
The more they walked inside, the more Dongfang Minghui felt that there was something wrong with Little Colour in the Sea of Souls, Little Colour was trembling all over, and in the end, was about to shrivel up into a ball.
“Seventh sister, something’s wrong.”
Dongfang Wanyu knew something was wrong because she felt an aura of death that shouldn’t be here, “You stay here, for now, I’ll go in and look for Toothless.”
“Okay, Seventh sister be careful, make sure you find Toothless.”
Dongfang Minghui just stood there and waited, but the more she waited the more anxious she became, the dark night and the surrounding area was quiet enough that she could hear her own breathing. No matter how much she hid, she always felt like there were eyes on her in this place and there was some dark energy that was trying to break through the boundary.
In a rush, Dongfang Minghui recited a sutra out of fear. She had been really frightened by the Aura of Death after the previous experience. Judging by Little Colour’s situation in the Sea of Souls, it too had been scared shitless from it. She definitely didn’t want to experience it a second time in her life.
No wonder this place was classified as a forbidden area of the Royal Academy, a long time ago, something must have happened to a Dark Spiritual Master, and it was probably all sealed off as a secret by those in the know.
Dongfang Minghui tilted her head to carefully recall the script, after coming to the Royal Academy, the Female Protagonist would meet all kinds of beautiful men, and then once by chance, she had sex with the young prince of the Elves, it seems that in order to hide the Dark Spiritual Power of the Female Protagonist, she had to double cultivate with this male several times, as a way to confuse the scent on her body, so that others could not detect her Dark Spiritual Power.
By the way, the Female Protagonist should have found a copy of a double cultivation method here…
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief as she thought of this, finally able to settle down. Before she knew it, her little life was already tied up with the Female Protagonist.
It was a good thing that the Female Protagonist’s protagonist aura had been working, or else she probably wouldn’t have been able to cover it up for her if she’d just fucked it up.
Dongfang Minghui’s back was slapped, scaring her so much that she screamed and then had her mouth covered.
“Ninth Sister, it’s me, Toothless has been found, let’s go.”
Dongfang Minghui could feel the cold breath of the Female Protagonistst, seems like she had found something in this forbidden area, she nodded.
As soon as she turned around, Toothless pounced on her.
“Mother.” Toothless took advantage of Dongfang Wanyu’s turn and spat something icy from its mouth into her hand, Dongfang Minghui touched what seemed to be a bit like iron, and threw it into the space ring without looking at it.
With a warm little one in her arms, Dongfang Minghui, who had just been shivering from the cold wind, felt as if she had come to life, and as soon as she did, she immediately picked up Toothless’ ear.
“How dare you run here alone, ah, don’t you know what this place is?” Dongfang Minghui gritted her teeth, she knew the little one had to be disciplined at a young age, and it was her fault. It was so busy that it didn’t seem to have been taught anything except to play by itself.
“Mother mother mother mother.”
Dongfang Minghui felt she absolutely could not be soft, and as soon as they returned to the small courtyard, she just put Toothless on the ground, took a tree branch, and gave it a good smack on the ground.
Toothless had thought she was playing with it, but after accidentally getting a few hard smacks on herself, it immediately played dead and got down on the ground and didn’t move a muscle.
“Are you going to run around later?”
Dongfang Minghui felt pained to hit it, so she simply threw the branch away and lay down on the bed to sulk.
Toothless was lying on all fours on the ground with its head resting on its paws, looking innocent. It looked as if it still didn’t understand why its mother was angry.
Dongfang Minghui gasped for a moment, realized the other was silent, looked back, and, well, she was mad as hell, the little guy was asleep on the floor.
She could only resign herself to the fact that Toothless had to be picked up again and cleaned. She scrubbed its four paws with a clean, damp cloth.
Toothless snuck one eye open while she went to put the damp cloth away, then quickly closed it again and went back to sleep, purring shortly afterward.
“What’s in the forbidden zone?” Qing Mo asked.
Dongfang Wanyu thought for a moment, and finally said, “It turns out that the Royal Academy also suffered from death aura a hundred years ago! But this didn’t come from Death Valley, but from a teacher at this academy.”
She found a little remnant of the events of that year in that attic, too far back in time to contain much, but enough to be shocking. No wonder the Dark Spiritual types are considered a big no-no. In the Royal Academy, even this place was considered a forbidden ground, buried in the many years of time at this place.
“Can you find a way to hide the dark spiritual power in you?”
This was Dongfang Wanyu’s ultimate goal in coming to the Royal Academy, of course, it was also for self-preservation.
Dongfang Wanyu took out a book from her space ring, it was a book she found in the attic, it was put together with the previous journal she casually flipped through a few pages. The diagram on it was very clear, it drew a picture of a man and woman having intercourse, she roughly flipped through it once and set it aside.
It turned out that this was that teacher’s method back then, he was using the method of double cultivation, where two people’s spiritual energy intermingled, it could be used as a way to disturb the sight of bystanders. It was not a bad method, however…
“There isn’t any.”
Qing Mo was a bit disappointed, “In that case, let’s try to find another method.”
Dongfang Wanyu directly burned it completely with some fire, looking at the fire with a shadowy look, she muttered, “I’ll find one…”
A more appropriate way to overcome the dark spirit power in her body must be found…
The next day, Dongfang Minghui got up early, and she waited for Female Protagonist to appear before suggesting, “Seventh sister, I’m going to go to the library. Gonna see if I can find out about Toothless’ origins.”
“Let’s go together then.”
The library was the place where Dongfang Wanyu had received the first place reward and obtained the skill scroll last time, but this time it wasn’t the same door they had entered before.
There were a total of twelve floors and eight doors in the Hidden Book Pavilion, making it the largest library in all the academies.
Dongfang Minghui and Dongfang Wanyu entered the regular door, from which there were all sorts of books that the students wanted to know about. But before you can read anything, you need spirit stones because taking away a book will automatically deduct three spirit stones. If you return it within the set timeframe then nothing would be deducted after that but if you don’t heh, ten times more will be deducted as late fees.
Counting it as a serious matter, Dongfang Minghui read over the rules of the first level of the Hidden Book Pavilion and decided to behave herself in accordance with the Academy rules.
Otherwise, the spirit stones she had just earned wouldn’t be enough to be deducted!
“Seventh sister, I might be here till late, so if you can’t find me, you can go back first.” Dongfang Minghui also had her little guy in her arms.
Of course, it was brought in secretly.
“Toothless, be a good boy, and don’t mess around, or I’ll whip your little butt when I get back.” Dongfang Minghui touched its newly emerged tail, just a little clump. Toothless shook twice thinking it was quite fun.
“Shh, don’t scream.” Dongfang Minghui peeked at the information on it and soon found a book of beasts. She flipped through it and quickly became interested.
It also recorded the magical rank of the Poison Flower Lightning Rat and such, she tsked as she read it. It turned out that in very ancient times, magical beasts would hunt humans, and humans were often beaten without a chance to fight back, their homes destroyed, this kind of vulnerability was common. The duel got turned around quickly after the humans grew stronger and started to cultivate, and then there was the situation of humans hunting beasts today.
Like humans, beasts could also cultivate in the Seven Colored Continent, and it also records the classification of beast levels, and whether the beast of the corresponding level corresponds to the Spiritual Master or Spiritual Emperor among humans.
Dongfang Minghui read with great interest, but Toothless clawed at the books and covered them, quickly hooking another one with his paw and placing it in front of her.
“Toothless is so smart.”
Dongfang Minghui picked up his little paw and kissed it, and then one pet and one human each continued to look for Toothless’ photos.
As a result, Dongfang Minghui had piles of books piled up in front of her from morning to night, but none of them had Toothless in them.
Toothless hid directly in her arms and fell asleep, Dongfang Minghui didn’t want to move anymore, took something, and hurried out.
As soon as she heard the signature sound, Dongfang Minghui understood that Toothless was asleep.
She couldn’t help but rub her head, she had looked at too many pictures of beasts today, and not one of them was Toothless. Dongfang Minghui returned to the house only to find that the light in the next room wasn’t even on.
Apparently, the Female Protagonist was even busier than she was and simply hadn’t even come back.
“Toothless, you little slacker.”
After a quick freshening up, Dongfang Minghui cuddled it and fell asleep.
Dongfang Wanyu had actually found a strange book in the nook and cranny of the library, a book that didn’t even have a name on it, not even a title.
The picture depicted on it was faint as if it had been written a long, long time ago.
When she opened it, she found that it was written by a woman, and she was drawn to it because the book was about her lover, who was also a woman.
It was as if a door had been opened for her, and the untold secrets of her previous understandings had been unraveled and released.
She had even changed the character in it to her Ninth Sister…
There was also the dual cultivation book that she had burned yesterday. If there was a method for both men and women, why couldn’t there be a dual cultivation method for both women and women?
Dongfang Wanyu insisted on wanting to find another way to hide her dark spiritual energy.
For three days, Dongfang Wanyu stayed in the library and never left.
Dongfang Minghui tried to look for her in the Hidden Book Pavilion, but she didn’t find anyone and she didn’t have much luck, just as she was about to leave, Toothless suddenly jumped up and then swiped a pile of books down with a paw, a few of them hitting her directly on the head.
Dongfang Minghui gritted her teeth, this little guy is definitely gonna be detained in the house for three days.
Toothless dragged and bit into a book and threw it in front of her, gesturing for her to keep reading, then automatically jumped back onto her chest and nestled there, ready to read together.
“You can try to look too, but the point is that none of them are written about you ah.”
Since it was the little one who took it, Dongfang Minghui opened it and read it, it recorded the nine different sons of the ancient dragon god.
She knew a little about this legend, so naturally, she was quick to turn the book over.
Who would have expected Toothless to cover a picture directly, Dongfang Minghui glanced at it, “Little guy, let me see what it is, you don’t really look like it…?”
Dongfang Minghui said that but still looked at it very seriously, “This mythical animal is a good luck charm good at devouring evil spirits. Hmph, the only thing you’re good at is causing me trouble, I haven’t forgotten about the last time.”
The Forbidden Zone. Is that a good place to enter?
Toothless dozed its head directly onto the book with a slightly innocent glance and a flick of its tail.
“Since you’ve admitted your mistake so sincerely, I’ll forgive you.” Dongfang Minghui kept flipping the book, but there was not a single match. “Is it hard to believe you’re a hybrid?”
Different species of animals probably give birth to different pups, so Toothless was probably abandoned. Dongfang Minghui was already thinking about its tragic birth.
“Toothless, don’t be sad, I’ll help you find your kind.” Dongfang Minghui was quick to promise, but her heart was not in it at all.
Dongfang Minghui had been so busy looking for books lately, along with dodging that whole Li Yunan thing, that she hasn’t set up her stall for a few days now.
It’s a good thing the Female Protagonist is nowhere to be seen and doesn’t even supervise her training anymore.
“Toothless, let’s go practice darts.”
Dongfang Minghui compared her skill to shooting darts when a flying leaf can strike through stone, it means her skill has the power to kill.
As she practiced, Toothless sniffed around on the floor, occasionally picking at it with his own paws, incurring the wrath of Dongfang Minghui.
“Toothless, is it dirty?”
She kept throwing for about two hours and still felt energized. She picked up Toothless and squeezed its little paws, “If you keep this up today I won’t let you sleep in the bed.”
Dongfang Minghui thought that when Toothless grows up, she won’t have enough room for it to sleep in her bed, and immediately got the idea to make a little nest.
Practicing her flying leaves until the evening, Dongfang Minghui looked down at the stubborn stone, which had no scars just a bit of green juice, and felt she had to keep working hard.
“That’s not how flying leaves should be practiced.” Suddenly a beautiful and ethereal voice appeared above her, Dongfang Minghui was startled, and at the same time, Toothless bellowed twice at the top.
It really roared! Although it’s roar was quite small and kind of cute rather than scary, Dongfang Minghui was still pleasantly surprised and hugged Toothless kissing him twice, “Toothless, you’re actually being protective, awesome.”
A beast should behave like a beast, or else how humiliating would it be to look like a puppy.
The man in the tree was dressed in white and landed lightly beside Dongfang Minghui, “This is what you raised? A puppy? I see you’re very close.”
Dongfang Minghui looked black in the face, “Which eye of your’s made you think it’s a dog?!”
What kind of dog comes out of an eggshell?
Then it hit her, Dongfang Minghui felt as if she had been looking in the wrong direction. She had always thought that Toothless was a land beast, so all the information she was looking for revolved around those beasts.
But Toothless jumped out of an eggshell!
Dongfang Minghui tapped her head, “Hey, when did you get here, and why are you spying on people practicing skills?”
Lu Xing spread his hands and said, very gently, “I’ve always been here, you just haven’t seen me.”
She saw that the other didn’t seem to mean any harm and nodded, “Well, since you’re here, I’ll find a new place to practice my skills.”
Lu Xing didn’t quite understand, “Why? Is it just because I’m here?”
He actually came this way because he was too bored, but he didn’t expect to be meet the human and beast that got along well in the Hidden Book Pavilion.
“Yeah, practicing skills would require finding a place where no one was around, and with you here, I’ll have to find somewhere else.” Dongfang Minghui was helpless as she picked up Toothless and prepared to go back.
Lu Xing hesitated for a moment, “Maybe you should practice over here and I won’t come next time.”
Dongfang Minghui snickered and pretended to be embarrassed, “I’d be too embarrassed to let you that.”
“It’s okay, I was the one who accidentally wandered in here, so can I come to watch you practice flying leaves next time?”
Dongfang Minghui hesitated, “Are you a student of the Royal Academy? What temple are you from? How come I haven’t seen you before.”
At least from the freshmen, she had indeed never seen his face.
“I’m from the Temple of Wood, and my name is Lu Xing.”
It was like a lightning strike from out of nowhere, Dongfang Minghui was annoyed, everywhere she went she met the Female Protagonist’s men, isn’t this the little prince of the elves?
Dongfang Minghui tensed her little face, this little elven prince was the source of all her sad fates from the original plot, she gave Toothless a hard pinch, resulting in Toothless screaming owlishly twice.
Dongfang Minghui nodded and went off in a state of disbelief.
When Dongfang Wanyu came back, she noticed that the house next was quiet and there was no sound.
Dongfang Minghui had a nightmare, she dreamt she was back in the dream world and was trapped in the nightmare and couldn’t break free. Toothless on the other hand was alarmed by her.
Four limbs and claws stomped on her face, and instead of waking up, Dongfang Minghui looked pained.
When Dongfang Wanyu arrived, she noticed that the other party’s face was flushed as if she was hot, and when she touched her, her forehead was red. Scalding hot as well. Next to her Toothless was still eyeing her.
“Don’t, I’m not, don’t, I’m not-” she wasn’t Dongfang Minghui, she shouldn’t suffer these consequences, she didn’t like any of those men at all.
Dongfang Wanyu saw that she was still in a nightmare and simply inputted spiritual energy into her body, and after the spiritual energy circulated around, Dongfang Minghui’s mood stabilized.
But her forehead was still hot, and Dongfang Wanyu’s initial guess was that she had a cold.
When she woke up the next day, Dongfang Minghui was still a little confused and had no strength left in her, she turned her head to see the Female Protagonist with her eyes closed.
Toothless saw her awake and immediately leaned in to lick her.
As soon as she shouted this, Dongfang Wanyu woke up and she carried Toothless off the bed, “You were burning up last night. Is it better now? If it’s not, I’ll ask your dean to come over and heal you.”
She had really intended to do that yesterday, and if she hadn’t been holding her hand so tightly, Wanyu would have invited someone over.
Dongfang Wanyu touched her forehead, the fever seemed to have subsided.
“Seventh sister, I’m much better, you go about your business.”
It really sucks to see her after a night of facing that cold, heartless woman in her dreams, she doesn’t want to see Dongfang Wanyu at all now.
Dongfang Wanyu thought she was being polite, “You can go back to sleep for a while, and don’t go practice today! Also, don’t set up your stall, you must be overworked from the last few days.”
Dongfang Minghui flipped right back around and didn’t face the Female Protagonist.
“Seventh sister, I’m going to rest a little longer.”
Whether the other party is asleep or not, Dongfang Wanyu was too familiar with it, sometimes she listened to the other party’s breathing sound to enter into cultivation but now this girl was actually lying to her.
This awkwardness continued until Dongfang Minghui got out of bed and she couldn’t reverse it.
Dongfang Wanyu seemed a bit distracted, she just can’t understand why Minghui seemed to be actively avoiding her after getting sick once. She wouldn’t even speak to her.
How would Dongfang Minghui dare to mess with the Female Protagonist, she just couldn’t stand the fact that all these men from the Female Protagonist’s harem were all out there running to her, what is she going to do!?
It’s best to just stay at the pharmacy every day to tend to plants so she doesn’t run into any of them…
Dongfang Wanyu listened for the sound of someone breathing next to her before quietly opening her door, Toothless grimaced at her as she threw her spiritual energy right out to trap Toothless so it couldn’t make any noise.
“What do you want, Ninth Sister?” Dongfang Wanyu leaned into the nape of her neck. She closed her eyes and sniffed, feeling that addictive smell like a magical flower, “It’s exactly like the illusion.”
Dongfang Wanyu leaned into the nape of her neck, feeling the warmth of her body, which was the only way her anxiety could be slightly reduced.
Dongfang Minghui always felt like something was bothering her and thought it was Toothless, she rolled over and put her face right up against the Female Protagonist.
Dongfang Wanyu’s fingers gently caressed her face, in the illusion she was as quiet as she was right now.
Her lips were slightly open in a beautiful looking shape.
Dongfang Wanyu leaned in and gave it a gentle lick.
