She wiggled her fingers, counting the days, and realized that she would be in the city for another twenty days or so before returning to the Royal Academy.
Female Protagonist would be going to her competition soon, and after their preliminary round, there would be a rematch, after which they would be able to compete for the top three.
As for the Pharmacy and Alchemy teams, they would both end a day earlier.
“Love Flower, didn’t the judge from before say earlier that the winning team this time would give out an unexpectedly large gift? If that’s true I’ll give you a big gift.”
Dongfang Minghui chatted with Love Flower, who had been silent lately and not active at all. On the contrary, Toothless in her space ring often ran around to provoke Love Flower.
Of course, Toothless always returned with a black face…
Dongfang Minghui was also curious as to why Toothless’ combat strength was as trash as hers, a small beast couldn’t even beat a flower!
“No need, just remember what you promised me.”
At the mention of this, she just collapsed internally, Blood Fiend Alliance wasn’t an easy place to break into, not to mention that they must have a use for that false Love Flower. There was a chance that by the time she she had broken in that Love Flower would be gone, ok??
But even if she said that to Love Flower, it would still continue to insist.
Geez, she found Love Flower’s obsession was really scary.
Dongfang Minghui grabbed Toothless right out of her space ring and gave it a scrub with a small tub.
As soon as Toothless came out, it scratched her arm with its paws and even opened its mouth to lick her fingers, licking and biting them.
“Toothless stop it.”
Dongfang Minghui knocked away his pawn and held it in her laps to examine its wounds.
While she was trapped, Toothless had been out and about on its own, getting itself dirty and it got quite a number of injuries, it broke her heart to look at it.
She propped its mouth open and found some teeth coming out of Toothless’ mouth, “Toothless have you grown lately?”
Toothless licked his paw and nibbled on it, “Ngmgmuh Ngmgmuhfh.”
Dongfang Minghui saw that it was always trying to bite things, and when it couldn’t find something to bite, it nibbled on its own paws, she secretly decided to make it a couple of teething sticks for when it wanted to bite something.
Qian Wanyu had just returned and saw her sitting and staring with Toothless in her arms, Toothless was jumping around in her lap and being restless for a moment but her eyes were vacant, and Wanyu didn’t know where her silly sister’s mind had wandered.
She guessed that the other was frightened by this incident.
After Dongfang Minghui was rescued, Qian Wanyu went to the team leader to explain the details of the incident.
As for Bai Lu, she was sent back to the Royal Academy by the lead teacher, along with a letter to inform the pharmacy, so she was sure to be severely punished.
Liu Qi should have been punished in this matter as well but Qian Wanyu considered that they still had competitions to attend so she interceded on her behalf and convinced the lead teacher to think of the bigger picture.
“What’s Ninth Sister thinking?”
“Seventh sister, you’re back, did the teacher say anything?” She placed Toothless on the bed and personally poured her a cup of water and handed it to her, “Seventh sister, take a sip of water.”
Qian Wanyu smiled lightly at the cup in her hand, “No issues, he wants you to rest for a few days and will try to help you postpone the last contest. But there are no results yet.”
“I don’t have any injuries though, I think the competition should go on as usual, but Seventh sister you, your competition is tomorrow, is it really not going to be affected?”
After all, even though she had taken the pill before, no matter how powerful it was, it couldn’t instantly restore the Female Protagonist to her peak.
She was actually worried, but it was hard to ask directly.
Qian Wanyu was very amused to see her worried face and she pointed to her injury, “It’s already healed.”
The thought of that killer Mu Yang’s sword piercing through the Female Protagonist’s body brought back an image of the Female Protagonist’s blood spraying all over her face.
Qian Wanyu saw that she was lost in thought yet again, she drank all the water in one gulp and pinched her face, as expected, this incident had still caused some psychological trauma to her, she couldn’t help but say, “Don’t go watch my match for the next two days, just rest well in your room.”
That being said, the next day Qian Wanyu left for her match but Dongfang Minghui quietly went to watch the match with Toothless and Love Flower in her pocket.
As soon as she sat down, she felt a line of sight staring at her.
Dongfang Minghui looked around, and strangely, didn’t see anyone familiar.
But as soon as she sat back down, the sight drifted over again.
“There’s something fishy here…”
“Little Sister, you’re okay, right?” Li Yunan appeared in front of her with a happy face.
He had been very worried since Dongfang Minghui’s accident and wanted to pay a visit afterwards, but was turned away by Qian Wanyu.
The reason Qian Wanyu gave was that the other party was in shock, and the assessment was that she needed rest so she couldn’t see visitors for a while.
But out of nowhere, the person who should have been recuperating appeared here in the crowd, how could he not be pleased.
Dongfang Minghui smiled at him with an embarrassed face, and in hindsight noticed that other people next to her were looking at them. She immediately waved her hand, “Brother Li you should sit down first, the match will start soon.”
She had originally found a remote place, but it turned out to be a perfect spot with Li Yunan sitting beside her.
Many people moved over in order to get closer to Li Yunan, but when Dongfang Minghui saw this, her buttocks twisted and grinded, and she wanted to leave.
In no time at all, Dongfang Minghui was surrounded by a large group of people, everyone’s eyes were focused on the two people, she felt as if there was like a thorn on her back, how uncomfortable…
“Brother Li, I’m not feeling too well, I’m leaving first, take a good look at Seventh sister’s match for me.”
After saying that, Dongfang Minghui was like a frightened rabbit that quickly scampered away with how fast she escaped. While running away she suddenly bumped into someone.
“Ouch, who’s the one that doesn’t have eyes.”
Dongfang Minghui felt a bit dizzy from this hit, the key was that Toothless, who was hidden inside her clothes, was hit solidly as well and rolled right out of her clothes.
Toothless rolled over and quickly ran back to Dongfang Minghui’s side, both paws firmly picking at the other’s clothes.
“Ugh, what a coincidence.”
Xuan Zhu was very unhappy at being bumped into, but once she saw Dongfang Minghui’s face, she smiled. You wear out iron shoes running around but in the end still find nothing yet somehow she bumped into this girl again.
Dongfang Minghui had a bad feeling, why did this person look a little familiar.
Dongfang Minghui had seen Xuan Zhu once, when the other party was dressed in a very gorgeous and extravagant outfit, and was a girl, completely different from the person in front of her right now.
Dongfang Minghui thought for a moment, unable to figure out where she had seen this person before.
“Hey, you’re the one who made a big splash in Yundu City?” Xuan Zhu’s arrogant attitude was at max as she kept looking up and down examining Dongfang Minghui, she couldn’t believe she was actually fooled by such a person.
Dongfang Minghui on the other hand didn’t care too much about this incident, blaming it on the day the lead teacher panicked and ran to the royal family to seek help, they deliberately drew her portrait and spread it around so people must’ve thought she looked familiar.
Dongfang Minghui simply ignored the strange person, she always encountered such weird people lately.
“Hey, I’m talking to you, why don’t you answer?”
Xuan Zhu felt a little less charming lately, how could it be that not just one but two people didn’t give a shit about her.
“I don’t know you, what’s the point of talking to you, I’m busy.”
Dongfang Minghui was a bit annoyed, just because she had been held hostage once, she had become a celebrity in Yundu City, everywhere she went people were pointing at her, those who knew were sympathetic to her, those who didn’t treated her as if she had done something shameful.
Xuan Zhu was stunned by her words, then remembered her identity and pointed to her jade belt, “I like this, if you let me have this, I won’t pester you anymore.”
Dongfang Minghui followed her gaze and looked at the jade belt, she suddenly remembered that just a few days ago a crazy girl saw her jade belt and said she wanted to buy it too.
She carefully identified the other girl’s face, “You-”
Her eyes looked up and down, the other person had not only changed into a new set of men’s clothes, but her face had been changed a bit, it was no wonder she couldn’t remember just now.
“So it’s you.”
Xuan Zhu smiled, her face changing as she threatened, “You played a trick on me last time, I’ll remember that. Name a price, give me this, and I’ll leave you alone. What do you think?”
Dongfang Minghui looked at her for a moment, then hugged Toothless and walked right away.
Naturally, Xuan Zhu saw Toothless too, but she had been treating the other as a pet dog, she didn’t expect the little animal lying on Dongfang Minghui’s shoulder to turn its little head to show its teeth.
It seemed to be protective of its owner.
There was a concerted scream from the stands, and Xuan Zhu was immediately distracted as she picked a seat.
When she got a good look at the people in the arena, her eyes glazed over and she almost lost her soul in fear.
Then she thought about it, it was actually normal to meet here, the owner of the jade belt was here, so that person would definitely not be too far away from her, but she didn’t expect that the other person was also a freshman.
“Hey, do you know the name of the woman leading the team?”
After Xuan Zhu calmed down, she leaned over to a person nearby to ask for some more information.
“Junior Brother, you can’t be serious, you don’t even know Qian Wanyu? Didn’t you watch the previous inner court assessment ah? She led our freshmen group to take first place straight away.”
The person next to him, with an adoring face, kept talking and going on about Qian Wanyu’s deeds to Xuan Zhu were poured out as he kept retelling Qian Wanyu’s previous glorious battle performance again.
In the end, just as the battle was at its peak in the arena, the person immediately roared, “Wow, not bad worthy of being the object of my adoration.”
Xuan Zhu looked excited at his appearance, after hearing about Qian Wanyu’s deeds a little envious, she has been living in the royal family since she awakened her dark spiritual power, and she has paid a lot for it.
She couldn’t cultivate, couldn’t expose herself, and lived a life of dread, the only fun she had was probably dressing up as a thief to steal things every now and then.
But compared to the person in the field, it was the difference of heaven and earth.
Seeing the unrestrained figure of that woman, Xuan Zhu suddenly lost interest in watching the game.
Dongfang Minghui felt that she should have listened to the Female Protagonist and stayed in her room to rest.
Now she only went out once and met a weird person.
She carried Toothless on her bed and picked up his four paws to inspect them, “Not banged up, right?”
Toothless nibbled on one of his paws, licking and licking.
“I’ll make you something you can chew on, you can play with these first.”
She looked over the medicinal plants in the space and found a few, shaking each of them under Toothless’s little nose.
Toothless chased after her as she gave him several medicinal plants to play with in batches, the first few, he was uninterested until she pulled out a jasmine medicinal plant, which he immediately jumped on.
“Hey, so you like this.”
After that, she got down to work on the Toothless brand teething sticks, which she hadn’t finished until Qian Wanyu came home.
She had to make sure that Toothless would like to bite on it, but she also had to consider its nutritional content, the type of medicinal plant and whether it was safe.
Qian Wanyu just stood by and watched her work. Toothless probably smelled something and kept circling her ankles, and even tried to climb up her pants from time to time.
Qian Wanyu quietly watched this cosy scene, somewhat envious of Toothless’ place in Ninth Sister’s heart.
“You can also properly ask your Ninth Sister about the ingredients of that Mixed Heaven Pill, she has time to concoct whatever mess she’s making here, why doesn’t she have time to help you concoct some pills out?”
Qing Mo still had a strong opinion about this, especially after experiencing the last time when Qian Wanyu like a moth to flame to block a fatal sword for Dongfang Minghui, he completely understood.
The other party’s normal actions that seemed abnormally odd, as well as occasionally erecting a barrier to shield him in the Sea of Souls …… all linked together to a good explanation.
If he hadn’t died yet, I’m afraid he wouldn’t be able to understand, much less accept, this kind of emotion. But as a lost soul that had been wandering outside for hundreds of years he had seen the world, killing his father and brother, killing his brother and taking his sister-in-law, and all kinds of paradoxical actions he had seen too many.
“Hey.” Qing Mo sighed, he felt as if he couldn’t do anything but sigh.
“Give her some time.” Qian Wanyu didn’t want to put too much pressure on the other party, the last few nights she noticed that the other party wasn’t sleeping peacefully, so she didn’t want to bring it up even more.
“The main thing is that you don’t have time!” Qing Mo was exasperated.
Dongfang Minghui used the pill-making method to concoct a finger-sized molar stick.
“Alas, it failed.”
A molar stick almost the size of an index finger, and it also emitted a burst of jasmine fragrance.
“Toothless, look at this.”
She crouched down and dangled the short molar in front of Toothless, and Toothless jumped and bounced anxiously.
“You eat it first, and then I’ll make you a new longer one if you like it.”
Toothless took it in one bite and jumped on the bed alone to grind his teeth in silence.
It seemed that her control of spirit power still needed to be strengthened, and she might as well practice her skills more in the last few days with nothing else to do.
She secretly resolved to practice the skill of Scattering Flowers. If she encountered Mu Yang again in the future, she would just poke him to death with a poison needle.
“Oh my, Seventh sister you scared me to death.”
Dongfang Minghui was secretly thinking of how to cut Mu Yang to death by a thousand cuts, and was thinking happily when she turned back and found the Female Protagonist gently gazing at her.
That gaze was the most gentle gaze she had ever seen, and her heart jumped a few beats uncontrollably.
Dongfang Minghui ignored it with the excuse of being too surprised, and she patted her chest, forgetting where her mind had wandered off to.
“You looked busy when I got back, Ninth Sister what were you doing?”
“Ooooh, that’s right, Toothless has been getting some new teeth lately and I saw him chewing on things everywhere so I made him a teething stick to sharpen his teeth. Seventh sister is your match over?”
Qian Wanyu nodded, “Yes, you can take a day off tomorrow, and the day after and the day after that if you need.”
Dongfang Minghui didn’t intend to ask any further detailed questions.
Qian Wanyu also offhandedly remarked, “Today I saw someone who particularly resembled you appear on the stands, I guess my eyes were blurry and I was mistaken.”
Female Protagonist said she was mistaken ……
Dongfang Minghui immediately raised the white flag in surrender, “Seventh sister, I was going to watch your game. But-”
Qian Wanyu spread her hands, she actually didn’t see anything today, but she heard a lot of people talking about Ninth Sister and Li Yunan, curious she tried to inquire more about it but that’s all she heard.
In regards to Dongfang Minghui not listening to her and resting in her room, but instead running off to hang out with Li Yunan she had one or two things to say.
However, the other party’s light-hearted words had righted the jealousy jar that had been turned over in Qian Wanyu’s heart again.
“Watching my match?” Qian Wanyu had a satisfied smile on her lips.
Being gazed at so intently by Female Protagonist, Dongfang Minghui’s heart suddenly missed a few beats, she uncomfortably looked away and nodded lightly, “I wanted to sneak off to watch your match, I didn’t expect to meet Senior Brother Li there, I, didn’t really like him sitting next to me, and then I left first. ”
“Well, I believe you. The next match is the day after tomorrow, so you can go over there if you want to watch it.”
Dongfang Minghui counted the time. Seems as if her match had been postponed as well?
“I can go see it the day after tomorrow.”
Qian Wanyu was in a good mood and settled down to practice straight away.
Dongfang Minghui woke up early in the morning to find Toothless tearing at the blanket, she checked the short grinder from yesterday and all but a little crumb remained.
“Toothless, you can’t eat this, spit it out”
Toothless, however, thought she was playing with it and with a tug, the bedding, which already had a hole chewed through by Toothless, ripped in half.
“Toothless when did your strength get so strong.”
Dongfang Minghui looked at the half of the broken bedding in her hands, Toothless immediately recognized his mistake and stoically slumped down on its forelegs, blinking at her.
“Come on, I happen to be free today, let’s get you some materials and make you a long, thick teething stick.”
She plunged two fingers into Toothless’ mouth and touched its newly emerged teeth, which seemed even larger than the ones she’d touched yesterday.
“Toothless, it looks like you’ve been growing lately.”
Toothless had been given plenty of nourishment by Dongfang Minghui while it was still inside its shell, had you ever seen an egg bathed in spirit liquid?
The daily feedings after that were also spirit liquid, but from all that she still couldn’t see it grow up, but now with this improvement, Dongfang Minghui was naturally very motivated.
When she walked out of the room, she saw that the Female Protagonist was still practising, and after a moment’s hesitation, she quietly closed the door.
“Minghui, where are you going?”
Dongfang Minghui encountered Liu Qi just outside the small courtyard, and they hadn’t spoken properly since she’d been taken hostage.
“Liu Qi, is something wrong?”
Liu Qi was a bit embarrassed, she handed the thing in her hand to the other party, “This is some medicine I made, I’ll give it to you.”
Dongfang Minghui probably knew the reason why the other party was doing this, and simply took it away and put it into her space ring.
Liu Qi looked at her, wanting to speak, then she saw Toothless in Dongfang Minghui’s arms, and found a topic, “Are you taking your spirit pet out to play?”
“Yeah, I’m going out to get it something to eat.”
“Can I go with you?” Liu Qi asked quietly, she knew she had made a mistake, but she didn’t know how to apologize.
Liu Qi was not a bad person, Dongfang Minghui also guessed what she wanted to do, the two of them still had a match tomorrow, if the atmosphere was awkward, it would instead make others laugh.
The two people went to a few places selling cakes to see, Dongfang Minghui casually bought a few exquisite-looking cakes, after tasting she thought they were delicious and went back to buy a few more boxes.
Then she ran to the marketplace to find some ingredients, some vegetables and some other bits and pieces.
Liu Qi took out the flour on the side and wondered, “Minghui what did you buy these for?”
“To make food for Toothless.”
A kind of teething stick would also be enough, but she wanted to make some vegetable and meat-based ones for little Toothless to gnaw on and get its teeth faster.
Liu Qi shrugged, she never knew there was so much work to do when taking care of a pet. She was only concerned about how many medicinal plants were used in the preparation.
By the time the two of them came out, they had already purchased almost everything they needed to purchase today.
As they walked along, the atmosphere was slightly awkward as neither of them mentioned the day’s events.
Liu Qi took several deep breaths before opening her mouth, “Minghui, I want to tell you that I’m really sorry about the last time, I didn’t know-”
Liu Qi screamed, she just turned back and saw a crazy beast rushing towards this side.
The hairs on Dongfang Minghui’s back stood up, she instinctively looked towards the back, a one-horned reptilian beast was rampaging straight at her, and there was a group of people chasing after it.
“Quickly make way, quickly make way.”
Since the one-horned beast was a vehicle in itself, it was huge and could carry many people it was dangerous for people standing in the way.
Few people would let this sort of beast appear on the street, the street’s narrow opening made it limited as to where you could dodge to and it would literally kill them if it came barreling over like that.
For some unknown reason, just when the one-horned reptilian beast was half a meter away from them, Liu Qi pulled her behind, closing her eyes in fear, making a big show of not going to see what would happen to her if she was trampled to death by this huge beast.
Dongfang Minghui also froze, looking at the girl in front of her with trembling shoulders.
Even if you want to apologize, you don’t have to put your life on the line…
Suddenly two silhouettes descended from the sky, one carried her and Liu Qi’s collar and flew to the opposite side of the teahouse, and one directly stomped on the one-horned reptilian beast’s head, hard into the ground.
The ground cracked and pedestrians retreated.
Dongfang Minghui was in shock, she patted Liu Qi’s shoulder and said in a false scared voice, “Liu Qi, it’s okay.”
Liu Qi’s eyes were red with fear, she had never experienced such a frightening scene before.
A tall man was standing right next to them, Dongfang Minghui tilted her head up only to see the other’s chin.
The man had a beard, a strong smell of sheep, a necklace of unknown animal teeth strung around his neck, the fabric of his clothes was animal skin, and he had very large pecs.
She took two steps back before she could see the other’s entire face, the other’s eyebrows were very thick, and the slight downwards angle of his two thick eyebrows gave a sense of pressure.
She probably knew exactly who this person was who had saved the two of them.
The man below had a very large sword on his back, and he only used his feet to directly make the one-horned reptilian beast bow down and struggle for half a second before it couldn’t move.
“Oh my, you barbarian, how dare you kill my family’s one-horned reptilian beast!?”
The man below just jumped off the reptilian beast, and he was stared at by the family servant who came after the reptilian beast.
The other man was somewhat at a loss for words in the face of such questioning, and Dongfang Minghui tugged at the taller one next to him, “Let us down.”
“Do you know which family we are? Quickly compensate us for our losses, or I’ll make sure you won’t feel better.”
This servant was rampant enough to dare threaten people after letting their own beast go wild like that and possibly causing injury or death to other people. They even wanted to be compensated!
“Hey, you two enough, do you know who I am?” Dongfang Minghui was trying to pull the tall one who killed the reptilian beast behind her, but she tugged twice and the person didn’t move.
Frustrated, she jumped directly in front of the man and pointed at the two servants, “Do you know who this girl is? Your stupid beast almost ran me over just now, do you know what would happen if you ran me over?”
Dongfang Minghui glared at them fiercely, not to mention, her face was really useful.
They had seen a portrait before when they had set off a frenzied search for her in Yundu City.
The girl in that portrait was somewhat similar to the one in front of them.
When the two household servants saw her, they immediately muttered and bit their ears, checking her out with their eyes as they muttered.
“But, girl, this reptilian beast is our young master’s constant companion when he goes out, this, if you kill it we won’t be able to explain it when we go back.”
Sure enough, wicked people had to be dealt with using wicked means.
She saw that the other party’s attitude had softened, so she didn’t want to embarrass them, “You guys released this thing, do you know what consequences it will cause? If the one-horned reptilian beast didn’t die, a few more people would have to die, and what if some of them are too much for your young master to handle?”
The two household servants had a cold sweat, one of them tried to make an excuse for the sake of it, “Girl, we didn’t let it out, it was originally brought back in the cage, but the cage that locked it was opened up halfway by someone and it just escaped and went on a rampage.
“Someone let it out on purpose to try and kill you.”
When Dongfang Minghui looked up, she saw a pair of blue eyes looking at him with a smile.
“How do you know?”
She asked a question subconsciously.
The other pointed to his eyes, “It was a girl that Mu and I saw with our own eyes.”
Liu Qi pulled Dongfang Minghui’s hand as soon as she heard, “Minghui, we’d better go back.”
This repeated accident was not a coincidence, there was someone trying to target them.
Dongfang Minghui looked at the two household servants, “You just heard, it was simply someone trying to kill me using your hands. It’s already fortunate that I’m not coming after you guys, but since I’m still in a good mood, you guys should hurry up and leave.”
“By the way, take this with you.”
Dongfang Minghui pointed to the corpse on the ground, she saw that the two household servants were both thin-armed and probably couldn’t drag it.
Both of them had just heard what was said and were too frightened to say anything else, immediately pulling on the reptilian beast’s corpse, but after pulling for so long, it wouldn’t budge. They simply left the corpse and just slipped away.
Dongfang Minghui watched them flee with a smile on her face as they ran away, then pulled a little distance away from the two tall men before lifting her head in order to talk to them properly.
“Thank you for saving our lives today.” Dongfang Minghui thanked them and after thinking about it she found a few bottles of pills and medicinal pills from within her space ring, “This is my thank you gift, please accept it.”
The pills were the same ones she had taken out of Death Valley before, and they were all of very good quality. The medicinal pills were all made by her own hands, so naturally, they were not far behind.
However, those two were waving their hands, and the man who killed the reptilian beast smiled, “Just a small effort, no need to-”
“No need to be polite.”
Dongfang Minghui looked at their silly appearance, really wondering how these two had survived in this place.
After thinking about it, she threw them all back into her space ring and brought out a porcelain bottle.
Before she spoke, she was met with rejection again.
Dongfang Minghui, however, insisted, “These are easy-to-use pills, I’m sure you’ll need it later.”
“Easy to use pills?” The man repeated.
Dongfang Minghui pointed to his face, “Yes, you will definitely need it.”
The man held out his hand and took the porcelain vase, “Thank you then girl, goodbye.”
Dongfang Minghui, however, pulled at the man’s hem and was almost dragged away, she quickly let go in embarrassment and saw the man’s confused face.
She pointed to the crowd of people coming and going, and then to the other person’s clothing, “You guys look too different, you better change your appearance a little so you don’t get recognized.”
Dongfang Minghui said that then quickly pulled Liu Qi to hurry away.
“Minghui, what did you mean by what you just said to them?” Liu Qi’s head was in a dense fog.
Dongfang Minghui shook her head and didn’t explain a word more, “It’s better to go back quickly, it’s too dangerous out here.”
When they got back, no matter how much she tried to rack her brain, she still couldn’t figure out who she had offended, “Seventh sister, who do you think would harm me?”
Qian Wanyu heard that the two of them encountered danger again when they went and her face was cloudy, “You must tell me when you go out in the future.”
Enemies hiding in the shadows, it’s really hard to guard against them. She took a look at Liu Qi, “Liu Qi, thank you for following her out today.”
Although the other party didn’t help much, she reminded her, otherwise by the time this silly Ninth Sister of hers reacted, it really would be too late.
She didn’t even dare to think further.
Dongfang Minghui knocked her head, she looked at Liu Qi, “Liu Qi, we still have to participate in the assessment tomorrow, you’ve suffered a shock today, go back and rest early.”
Liu Qi nodded her head, “Minghui you also rest early, see you tomorrow.”
“Seventh sister, today Liu Qi shield me behind her when she saw the one-horned reptilian beast.”
Dongfang Minghui felt really lucky, if that big guy had run over her, she would have turned into a meat pie.
“Yeah?” Qian Wanyu sullenly said, “If Seventh sister is there, Seventh sister will protect you too.”
Dongfang Minghui blushed slightly, and the atmosphere that was still somewhat sentimental was ruined by this sentence.
“By the way, you said that two people saved you? Who were they?” Qian Wanyu asked.
It’s the barbarians.
Dongfang Minghui was puzzled by this development, the barbarians shouldn’t have appeared at this time, unless there was some change in the script.
“I’m not quite sure, but in the future, if I encounter one, I’ll be sure to thank them.”
Dongfang Minghui wouldn’t have been so worried if she hadn’t seen those two with her own eyes, she felt she’d overlooked something.
“You’ll be competing tomorrow, the people behind the scenes shouldn’t be so bold, you should rest early today and refresh yourself.” Qian Wanyu had a few headaches as well, she and Dongfang Minghui were practically inseparable and she had never seen her offend anyone.
If there were some to offend, there might be a few like Xu Lian and Xu Jin but both were at the Royal Academy, so it was impossible for them to travel to such a faraway place to commit murder.
Apart from these two, there didn’t seem to be anyone else.
She shook her head, unable to understand so she simply started meditating quietly.
The next day, Dongfang Minghui and Liu Qi made an appointment to head straight to the assessment location.
Today’s examination questions were almost the same as the last one, similar, nothing more than a slight increase in difficulty.
Because of the successive events, Dongfang Minghui was a little distracted, she thought over and over again yesterday a night, after listing the people she had offended she found that she had neglected a person.
Fourth sister, Dongfang Lizhu.
But in the end she had been away from home for too long, two years, could a woman who had married someone still make waves?
“Minghui, Minghui, the examiner is calling you.”
Liu Qi sneakily pushed her in the back.
Dongfang Minghui had just thought of this key person, and her thoughts went blank after being pushed like that.
The examiner was wondering what was going on, it was the first time he had seen such an inattentive student.
“You may begin.”
This match, except for the second round when Liu Qi almost made a mistake on it, all of them were considered to have passed the assessment smoothly.
The people from the other side, Sacred Plume Academy, were very gracious and came to congratulate them when they saw that the two of them were on the field and had won the match.
Dongfang Minghui was smiling, but the smile wasn’t in her eyes, her whole body was distracted as she kept thinking. Liu Qi who was beside her could tell that her mind wasn’t here, and simply said, “Minghui, I see that you seem to be a bit mentally exhausted, so why don’t you go back to rest first, and leave the rest to me.”
She had just thought of someone but forgot again…
Dongfang Minghui kept walking, not knowing where she was going she just randomly wandered, she didn’t think much about it, and continued walking, she went through all the things that had happened since she came to this world.
Visualizing all the people she had met, then it came to her.
“I thought of it.”
Aside from Dongfang Lizhu, she had indirectly offended someone who by all rights shouldn’t hold a grudge against her.
Dongfang Minghui realized upon returning to her senses that she wasn’t sure where she was yet.
There happened to be a beautiful lake in the pavilion next to her, the surface of the lake was crystal clear, and fish could be seen swimming in the water, as well as scattered medicinal plants around the area.
She saw the scenery was good, so she found a place to sit down and just watched the rippling lake.
But it was only a short while before she felt the powerlessness that was weighing on her heart disappear.
If it was the same person who had harmed her twice, then at least there had to be a stronger reason ah, she had neither stopped her fortune nor done anything to harm her.
At most, it was from when she accidentally bumped into last time.
The person she was thinking of was Murong Qingyi, the person she had met in the Royal Academy ……
Dongfang Minghui suddenly hit herself on the head, “I’m so stupid, obviously she’s also someone who participated in the freshman tryouts this year.”
She had met her before, but turned around and forgot about the person.
Dongfang Minghui immediately stood up, but inadvertently caught a glimpse of someone behind her from the reflection of the lake.
She was scared out of her wits.
The person ended up kicking her right in the knee, pulling her by the hair with one hand and just holding her down towards the lake.
Cold water poured directly through her nose, eyes and ears, Dongfang Minghui felt like she was going to die.
She struggled a bit, but found that the other party was super strong and she couldn’t get free.
For just a short moment, her face had remained on the surface of the water for no more than ten seconds.
“No – gulp – teeth.”
Several water bubbles appeared on top of the lake’s water.
Dongfang Minghui struggled unsuccessfully, gradually losing her strength and her mind became dizzy, the suffocating feeling was very uncomfortable for her.
She was trying to grab the other’s hand, but inadvertently touched something cold.
A jade belt.
Dongfang Minghui immediately groped for the silver needles concealed inside and shot them away with her spirit power.
She heard a yelp from the other as she wished.
The other person was poked somewhere, a hand loosened its hold on her, and Dongfang Minghui took the opportunity to raise her head and take a couple of quick breaths.
Before she could turn back to see what her killer looked like, her head was pressed down again.
Toothless slipped out of her space ring and pounced right on the person.
It bit into the man’s hand.
“Hey, what are you doing!”
Dongfang Minghui suddenly heard a particularly familiar voice, the next thing she felt was the person’s hold on her loosening, she then looked up and saw a silhouette of a person in her eyes.
