“Come on, let’s continue to play throwing stones.”
The broad-minded Xuan Zhu dragged Dongfang Minghui back to the small courtyard and drew another line one meter in front of the previous position.
“Minghui, although I lost the last game, this princess is not convinced, so today this game we’ll increase the difficulty, if you can still hit the stones on the line, I will give you a big gift.”
Dongfang Minghui rolled her eyes. She didn’t care about any big gift, as long as the other party didn’t try to take money from her.
“Well, what do you want to bet on this time?”
She was used to Princess Xuan Zhu’s routine of throwing stones, winning, and then getting a big prize.
Dongfang Minghui felt that Princess Xuan Zhu was probably a fool to gamble on something so simple, and she felt guilty.
“I’ll throw first this time, and if you can hit my stone out and still get it on the line, I’ll offer a big gift, no need for you to put up anything.” Xuan Zhu said boldly.
Dongfang Minghui had planned that no matter if she won or lost she wouldn’t take her gift, she’d just consider it as playing and having fun.
The distance was almost three meters.
It was good that she had been diligent in her cultivation for some time, otherwise, she would have been unsure.
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t help but give a thumbs-up as Xuan Zhu quickly threw ten stones, each of which was almost exactly on the line.
She weighed the weight of the stones, and each of the ten stones was different, she made a rough estimate and threw the stones lightly, each one hitting the stones that Xuan Zhu threw.
Dongfang Minghui’s stones wobbled but fell back to the line.
She clapped her hands and turned back with a wry smile on her face to find Xuan Zhu staring at her.
Xuan Zhu’s eyes were so wide that they looked like they were about to pop out.
“Minghui, I’m going to give you a super gift.”
Dongfang Minghui immediately waved her hand, “Forget it, it’s embarrassing to ask you to give me a gift every time, I won’t do it this time.”
“No, you definitely need to accept this gift!”
Xuan Zhu grabbed her shoulders with a serious look on her face, “I’m telling you, you have to have this gift.”
“I have to?” Dongfang Minghui laughed bitterly, why did she feel that the other party was a bit nervous and her mood seemed weird.
As a result, Dongfang Minghui was dragged out by Xuan Zhu, and they appeared on the street of Yundu City.
“Xuan Zhu, what are you trying to do making me wear this outfit?”
She pulled on her men’s clothing, it was a little uncomfortable, if the people of Qing Lan Sect saw her in Yundu City, she would be finished.
“Ugh, be natural, or you’ll be recognized” Xuan Zhu said with a calm face, winking at her.
Dongfang Minghui was speechless, could she act natural in this? She had at least worn men’s clothing before but the one she was wearing right now was too showy…
“Are you taking me somewhere?”
The matter of Murong Qingyi was still unresolved, although the other party was now missing, they could accidentally meet again.
With her three-legged kung fu, and this princess who was even more useless could they escape?
“Don’t worry, since I promised your Seventh sister to take care of you, I’ll keep my word.” Xuan Zhu patted her chest and promised.
Dongfang Minghui was sceptical. When the time came, she didn’t know who would protect who if anything happened.
After eight turns and three more blocks, Dongfang Minghui was already fully confused as to where they were going as Xuan Zhu led her into a dark alley.
“Hey, I think you’d better keep that big gift for yourself.”
What if Xuan Zhu sold her out? She didn’t know yet, but Dongfang Minghui looked at the alley and began to think about retreating.
She stepped backwards.
“Hey, why are you running, worried that I’ll eat you?” Xuanzhu’s sharp eyes caught her.
Dongfang Minghui was grabbed by the collar, and with a slight spin, she broke free of Xuan Zhu’s restraint.
“Yo, I underestimated you.” Xuan Zhu’s hands were empty, and when she flinched, she saw that the other party was looking at her with a guarded face.
She had thought that the other party was a freshman pharmacist, unarmed, caught once and almost harmed once, such a person must be weak in spirit.
But to her surprise, the other party was nimble and quite smart.
“If you don’t tell the truth, I’ll never go with you again.” Having experienced several incidents, Dongfang Minghui was already on guard. Regardless of whether Xuanzhu was trustworthy or not, the fact that she had brought herself here seemed very strange.
They had only met a few times at most and had gambled twice, so they were not the best of friends, it was only a matter of time before someone like this could sell you out.
Xuan Zhu’s mouth hung open, she truly didn’t think of harming Minghui, but the other person was so on guard. Then again, when she thought of the other party going through so many bad things, she could also understand, once bitten twice shy.
“If I was going to hurt you, I could have done it when we were in the Royal grounds before, why would I wait till here and now?”
Dongfang Minghui directly touched her jade belt.
As soon as Xuan Zhu saw her move, she immediately shouted, “Stop, I know what you’re doing, don’t move or I can’t guarantee about what’ll happen later.”
Xuan Zhu stared straight at Dongfang Minghui’s hand, fearing that the other party would suddenly fire a secret weapon at her.
She knew too well the function of Entangled Love, which was hidden with the jade belt.
“In that case, what do you honestly want to do by bringing me here?” Dongfang Minghui was really planning to give her a couple of stitches if it was anything bad.
Xuan Zhu walked back and forth with difficulty, her eyes still glued to Dongfang Minghui’s hand, and she bit her fingers, “Actually-”
“If you’re here why don’t you come in?”
A loud voice came out from the house in the dark alley, deafening and directly penetrating their eardrums.
Dongfang Minghui stepped forward and pointed a silver needle directly at Xuan Zhu’s throat, as long as she gently bent her fingers, Xuanzhu would have one of these silver needles in her throat.
Xuan Zhu immediately raised her hand, swallowed, and whispered, “Qian Minghui, I treated you with kindness, why are you still treating me like this.”
If she wasn’t wrong, the person inside was at least above Spiritual King!
“Tell me how do I leave?”
“That man inside is my master, think about it, what do I, a princess, want with you?”
Dongfang Minghui thought about it carefully, it seems to be true, the other party bet a medicinal plant and ended up giving away the plant for free to her.
“What is the purpose of you bringing me here?”
At this point, Xuan Zhu had no choice but to tell the truth, “You meet all the conditions.”
Dongfang Minghui was dumbfounded, and with that distraction, Xuan Zhu took the opportunity to spit out a stream of grey smoke toward her.
Xuan Zhu caught Dongfang Minghui, who was about to faint, and took a deep breath, “It’s better to fall asleep.”
She only knew that Qian Wanyu was a very difficult person to deal with, but she didn’t know that Qian Minghui was also a very difficult one to deal with…
These two sisters were really similar, neither was easy to fool.
“Little brothers and sisters, come help.”
Xuan Zhu tried to pick the person up but found the sad fact that she couldn’t.
Soon a group of children rushed out through that door and carried the person to the house.
A man sat on a chair in the room, wearing a blue gown, with nothing under his legs, and he looked at Xuanzhu with a smiling face.
“Who is she?”
Xuan Zhu, with a smiling face, leaned over and said, “Master, I’m telling you, this person is the kind of gifted person you’ve been looking for.”
The man called Master immediately sat up straight and asked seriously, “Seriously?”
I have tested her twice, and her eyes and hands are very flexible and precise.” Xuan Zhu told the man her observations, “If you don’t believe me, wait until she wakes up.”
When Dongfang Minghui came to she felt something was wrong and rubbed her head.
“The other party is a Dark Spiritual Master, what you were sprayed with before was just a little mist. It won’t hurt the human body to absorb it.”
As soon as she woke up, Love Flower spilled the beans on what that man and Xuan Zhu had just been plotting.
“Hey, do they all think I’m stupid?”
Dongfang Minghui was amazed. Did she really seem so stupid…?
“Hey, are you awake? My master says he wants to see you.” A little boy shorter than her said arrogantly to her.
Dongfang Minghui simply ignored it, she would not bother with a child.
She followed the other party, through the hall, and walked to a small room, “This is my master’s room, you can go in.”
Knowing the other’s scheme, Dongfang Minghui was not afraid. She pushed open the door of the room with extreme frankness.
The room was a mess, and there was a strong smell that almost killed her.
It was the stinkiest room she had ever been in.
Inside the room, Xuan Zhu was kneeling on the floor with her head hanging low, expresionless. In front of Xuan Zhu, there was a man sitting there quietly.
“What exactly do you want to do by bringing me here?”
Dongfang Minghui made a pre-emptive strike but actually came to watch the show. Just now, Love Flower had told her everything that the two had discussed.
The man struck Xuan Zhu with his cane, “How should you be punished for bringing an outsider here and revealing my secret?”
Xuanzhu immediately fell down in front of the other party and cried, “Master, have mercy, I just wanted to relieve your worries, I didn’t mean to bring outsiders in.”
Dongfang Minghui stood aside and watched Xuan Zhu and her master act, with a slightly torn expression on her face.
The main thing is that the other person’s acting was so bad, this sort of fake crying with no tears, did they really think they could fool her…?
“Ever heard the saying a beating is a kiss, and scolding is love? It should be more like this.” Dongfang Minghui went straight over and snatched up the cane.
Just a second later, she realized something was wrong.
The cane was too damn heavy.
“Never mind, I’ll show you with this.” Dongfang Minghui threw the cane back, hurried outside, talked to a tree, and broke one of its thin branches.
“Xuan Zhu, I’ll teach you, about how a real beating is a kiss, and scolding is love.”
Dongfang Minghui said, and then she smacked Xuan Zhu several times with the thin twig which was very painful.
“Ahhh, you’re seriously whipping me!?” Xuan Zhu was directly hit and jumped up, thinking that she was a princess and had never been treated like this before.
“Yeah, could it be that you guys were just acting?”
Dongfang Minghui gritted her teeth and ran after her, whipping as she ran, “Xuan Zhu, don’t run, this is real love, okay?”
“Ah, don’t fight, don’t fight, I was wrong ok?” Xuan Zhu was in tears, she felt so painful at the area where she had just been smacked, it should be red and swollen now…
“Good to know.”
Dongfang Minghui threw the thin branch behind and said with a cold face, “In that case, send me away.”
Xuan Zhu bit her lip, “Qian Minghui, my master is the most powerful thief in the Seven Colored Continent. If you become his disciple, wouldn’t anything you want in the future be easily stolen?”
Strange, how did that feel a little familiar.
“Tsk, so you’re a thief.” Dongfang Minghui only discovered Xuan Zhu’s real identity at this moment.
“Yes, I am.” Hyun-joo admitted generously, “Your Seventh sister already knows by the way.”
Dongfang Minghui: “……”
What’s the point of mentioning her Seventh sister…?
“I’m not interested in acknowledging any master or anything, we’re not from the White Moon Empire, we should be leaving when Seventh sister returns.”
She even felt that the White Moon Empire was simply a place of calamity for her constantly being kidnapped, almost getting crushed and drowning…
“I see that you are an extremely dexterous young lady, and you are very precise in your movements of smacking people with a branch, why don’t we have a contest.” The man himself came out pushing his wheelchair and looked at her calmly.
When the wheelchair came down, the wind gently lifted a corner of the blanket on the other’s leg, and Dongfang Minghui realized that the strange thief was actually a man who had lost both legs.
No wonder the other party had to use crutches, it seems that it couldn’t be helped.
“What’s the contest?”
Dongfang Minghui looked into her opponent’s eyes and couldn’t say no if she wanted to.
It was nothing more than a contest, and she would have nothing to do if she lost.
“Xuan Zhu, bring your friend here.”
The thief’s hand propelled the wheelchair itself toward the hall where Dongfang Minghui had just walked.
After passing through the hall, he turned to the rightmost open space.
Dongfang Minghui followed Xuanzhu and watched in puzzlement as a group of small kids dragged many things out of the house.
“Hey, what are they doing?”
