She slapped the ground with one hand, and she rolled up in mid-air to stand up in on leap.
“Seventh sister, I made you worry.”
The spiritual pressure emanating from her was of the Spiritual King level, Qian Wanyu gave her a worried look, if Qing Mo hadn’t closed up at this critical moment, things might not have been so bad.
“How is it possible!? What secret method did you use??”
With such a big breakthrough, the man in black couldn’t think of any other method other than using a secret method to raise her level. But the act of using a secret method like this was a situation that all cultivators were most unwilling to face.
Although secret methods could truly increase your rank immediately, the person using it would suffer a backlash and stay at that level for life, unable to grow any stronger. Their cultivation would forever stop there and may even go backwards.
Qian Wanyu felt her heart hurt, such a secret method was indeed something that shouldn’t be easily used. The water thunder whip in her hands was so gripped tightly her knuckles turned white.
Dongfang Minghui smiled very brightly to answer, “You shall die.”
“Seventh sister, we’ll team up.”
Dongfang Minghui stretched out her hand, Qian Wanyu felt her heart hurt but grasped her hand, although she was sad they had to solve this enemy first before anything else.
Afterwards, they could talk more about Minghui’s strange power boost.
“It couldn’t be a secret method, what other method did you use?” At most, ordinary secret methods could only raise one level from the base, he had never seen any cultivator like Dongfang Minghui, who went to Spiritual King out of nowhere!
A white mist drifted by, and Qian Wanyu found herself in an illusionary world, it was the home she and Ninth Sister had built together. Since the two of them were holding hands, Dongfang Minghui naturally saw it too.
“Seventh sister, this is the illusionary realm.”
Earlier, Love Flower briefly told her the detailed plan which was to pull this Spiritual King level Dark Spiritual Master into the illusionary realm and take the other person’s head while he was busy fighting his heart demons.
She was currently a third rank Spiritual King, but the other party was an entire six levels higher than her, a ninth rank Spiritual King, one step short of Spiritual Monarch realm, thankfully the other party did not cross into this realm, otherwise, she and Seventh sister would really have to die here.
“Go, Love Flower has found the other party.”
This illusionary realm was controlled by Love Flower, it naturally knew the location of the other party, and had transmitted it to Dongfang Minghui.
Dongfang Minghui pulled Female Protagonist and left, but found that she didn’t budge.
“What method did you use to enhance your spiritual power, tell me.”
“Seventh sister, it’s a seal.”
In fact, she also forgot about this, this sealed power was originally Little Colour’s helpless act when it signed the contract with her because without sealing all of its cultivation, with her status as a little Spiritualist at that time, she would probably explode.
Little Colour was not willing to have years of cultivation ruined, so it sealed it all inside her body.
Qian Wanyu wrinkled her eyebrows but did not loosen them, and instead pursued, “Is it that magic plant?”
“Yes, quickly Seventh sister I have limited time.”
Using this sealed power was not normal like a breakthrough, she would suffer a certain backlash. What exactly it was, she was not sure.
But that person, she was definitely going to kill first before that.
When the two of them found him, the other party, as Love Flower expected, was caught in this realm as well but when he saw the two of them, the other party even shouted and scolded.
“Ninth Miss, come with me!”
Dongfang Minghui frowned, even in the illusionary realm he still had such a heavy obsession, was this heart of the elf really so important?
Vines wrapped around the other party from all sides and Little Colour jumped out of Dongfang Minghui’s soul sea, fiercely smacking the other party a few times.
The dark figure laughed and emitted a dense grey smoke throughout his body, but this time Little Colour’s vine wasn’t instantly eroded by the aura of death.
Little Colour was extremely angry, it still remembered the last time on what happened in the Valley of Death, that little death qi was enough for it to force it to lose its human form which wasn’t easy to transform into.
So it became more aggressive, smacking the person and deliberately pulled the black hat on his head directly off, revealing the other side’s horrible face which looked worse than a ghost.
The face was very thin, his eye sockets were concave and skin on his face was also pale and wrinkled, it looked like a corpse that should’ve been dead lying in the coffin.
Although he looked old, just from his voice you couldn’t tell he was old.
Dongfang Minghui was a little surprised but surprisingly calm, the original plot described Dark Spiritual Masters as having this look if they were even bigger sinners perhaps they wouldn’t even be able to keep this look and would look more inhuman.
“Answer my questions honestly.”
Qian Wanyu cursed that she could not swing her whip over, thinking about what Ninth Sister had suffered before, she had uncontrollable violence in her heart.
“Your purpose is to capture Ninth Sister? Why?”
Dongfang Minghui had a few moments of silence as she pulled out the greenish object in her space, “How did you guys know about the Elven Heart?”
The heart of the elves was a holy relic of the elves, in the original plot it was also involved but because the author dropped the novel, she didn’t know fully what the use of it was.
So did she just open up a new plotline…?
“Heh heh heh, Ninth Miss, your mother is now a guest in our place.”
The expression on Dongfang Minghui’s face changed, “You captured my mother?!”
The other party smiled darkly and it made his eyes look even more sinister, “That’s why I advise Ninth Miss to know the situation and follow me back honestly.”
After saying that, with a bang, all of Little Colour’s vines were broken by the other party.
The other party’s pale hand directly reached for Dongfang Minghui.
“Looking for death!”
Qian Wanyu has been watching out for this, seeing the other party’s movement, she immediately stopped in front of Dongfang Minghui to meet it.
Dongfang Minghui was distracted for a bit, when she just heard about the Second Lady, she was a little confused, the original script mentioned that the Second Lady was very doting on the Ninth Miss, after learning that the Female Protagonist killed her she also tried to take revenge for her.
Such a mother made her suddenly think of her mother in the modern world.
“Seventh sister, let me help you.”
Bringing her mind back to the current situation, the spiritual energy on Dongfang Minghui’s body immediately rippled, Little Colour once again flung its vines but this time it didn’t intend to let the opposite party struggle anymore.
The three of them combined their efforts and Little Colour’s vines tied his legs and hands, hanging him in mid-air.
Qian Wanyu wrapped her whip around his body and used a small strand of purple coloured thunder essence to electrocute him enough to cause sparks to splash
Dongfang Minghui used her flying needles and imbued them with her spiritual power to transform them into a giant sword, much bigger than the one before.
Without mercy, she slashed the sword down just like that in one go, and the spiritual sword directly split the person into two.
The spiritual power split his whole body and grey smoke started to spread out little by little but it dissipated in the air. Dongfang Minghui took a look and thought that this was likely related to Love Flower.
Even though the man was split in half, he still crawled stubbornly on the ground.
“My mother where is she now?”
Dongfang Minghui squatted down, she believed that the other party’s words could not be aimless, something must have happened that she didn’t know about.
The man smiled at Dongfang Minghui, and Qian Wanyu sent a long whip out the moment she saw mist came out of his mouth.
Qian Wanyu stepped forward and twisted his head off directly, stacking the two halves of his body together.
Seeing that the Female Protagonist had killed him so quickly, she was a little disappointed that she could not get any useful information.
As soon as the illusion disappeared, Qian Wanyu was still a bit uncomfortable, she immediately turned to Dongfang Minghui and found the other party sitting against a tree stump, with a bit of a lonely expression on her face.
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes turned slightly, looked at her and pulled a smile with some effort, “Seventh sister.”
Qian Wanyu felt a little distressed when she saw her listless appearance. She understood that the second lady was very important to Ninth Sister. Now that the other party was missing and possibly in danger, she would definitely feel uncomfortable.
“Ninth Sister, have you written a letter back?”
Dongfang Minghui shook her head, naturally, she hadn’t, she had been thinking of all the ways and means to please the Female Protagonist for the sake of her own little life up to now.
Plus she just reincarnated into Dongfang Minghui not too long ago, there was always an unreal feeling about the people and things around her, so she subconsciously chose to escape.
She hadn’t written anything because of all the experiences of near-death in the Purple Devil Mountain Range, and gradually forgot about those annoying things later on. Later, when she settled down in the Royal Academy, she did not know what to write plus she was busy with upgrading and refining pills, so she also forgot about it.
Qian Wanyu opened her mouth and finally did not explain the reason why she just immediately killed the other person. She had read a small portion of information about the man in black in Murong Qingyi’s memory, and the other party was able to both place hints in Murong Qingyi’s mind to make her explode. There was also a chance that he could have self-destructed and hurt Ninth Sister.
“Don’t worry too much, perhaps the other party deliberately made you think about it to let your guard down.” Qian Wanyu stroked the other party’s small head, “Why don’t you write a letter back to ask about the situation when we return to the Royal Academy.”
“Good.” Dongfang Minghui nodded, “Seventh sister, go tend to Mu Sheng, he is more seriously injured than me. Also, Lu Xing, I don’t know if he is safe and sound now either…”
Qian Wanyu saw Mu Sheng blocking the blow for Ninth Sister before and immediately ran over to check him out, “Strange.”
Mu Sheng was obviously attacked by the Aura of Death, but now he was unharmed?
Dongfang Minghui opened her mouth, wanting to tell her that it was because Love Flower had already cleansed the Aura of Death from his body before.
Regardless, Mu Sheng still sacrificed himself by standing in front of her before to block a blow and she had to thank him properly. But before she could say anything…
Dongfang Minghui suddenly felt more and more exhausted, and her consciousness became more and more blurred, after a moment she could no longer feel anything and blacked out.
By the time she woke up again, she was lying in her room.
Toothless was leaning over her bed, it’s little head nestled near her neck and snuggled close. As soon as she opened her eyes, it also woke up.
Dongfang Minghui wanted to touch it but found that she could not move, not to mention move her hand, even her fingers seemed to be stiff.
She checked the inside of her body with her spiritual sense, there was no damage, everything seemed to be intact.
When she looked at her sea of souls, she found that Little Colour had become a seedling again, as if everything she had encountered in the forest had disappeared like an illusion, leaving nothing behind.
Dongfang Minghui probably knew what was happening.
After forcibly breaking the seal, the aftermath she had to bear afterwards, the result of the backlash, was it to lie in bed and become a vegetable?
As if sensing her mood, Toothless snuggled her neck and licked her affectionately.
“Despite living hundreds of years, I don’t even know what grade your magic plant is…”
The voice of Love Flower suddenly sounded in her consciousness.
The implication was that it didn’t know what kind of backlash she’d face if the other party’s seal was broken.
Little Colour had no way to solve this problem for her either for the time being.
Dongfang Minghui opened her eyes wide and did not move, suddenly the door of the room was pushed open. Qian Wanyu was holding a basin of water, and when she saw her waking up, she smiled and said, “Ninth Sister, you lazy sleeper you finally woke up?”
Although she couldn’t move, she felt that the aura on Seventh sister was more stable if her state when she first came to the royal academy was sharp and oppressing, now it was a hidden sharpness it felt harmless and mellow yet hid a sharp blade underneath.
“Don’t worry, I have written a letter back home for you, I think there will be a reply in a few days.” Qian Wanyu carefully wiped her fingers with a towel, and finally simply held her hand and did not let go.
That day, as soon as the other party fell into a coma, she immediately took her and Mu Sheng back to the Royal Academy, and the first thing she did was to ask the dean of the pharmacy to come and see her.
She didn’t hide what they had encountered on the way, but the other party’s diagnosis was that she had suffered a certain backlash and the situation was not too optimistic.
She has been waiting for the other party to wake up, and this wait had turned into two months.
When Dongfang Minghui heard what the other party said about the letter, she noticed something was wrong. The Royal Academy and Dongfang House were at least tens of thousands of miles apart. If they didn’t cross the Purple Devil Mountain, they would have to take a detour, going between two countries. If they were talking about letters, most of them were sent via flying beasts, so it would take at least a month how could a reply be back so fast?
She opened her mouth and found that she couldn’t speak, so she gave up.
Qian Wanyu put her hand on her mouth and took a few bites. “You have been in a coma for two months.”
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes moved slightly, remembering that the thing she was most concerned about before she fell into a coma was Mu Sheng and Lu Xing.
This time, however, Qian Wanyu was not explaining more, “The dean had been coming to your courtyard daily to see how you are doing, he would be very happy if he knew you woke up.”
“There’s also that Blue Stars Dream outside, it’s grown taller and bigger, according to Yong Xing, when a few medicine gardeners came to this small courtyard unintentionally before, they were directly thrown out by Blue Stars Dream, and they were all terrified.”
This is was something they did when they were in the White Moon Empire. Several of the medicinal gardeners were instructed by Xu Lian to come and make trouble for Dongfang Minghui’s medicinal plants and destroy some of them.
The other party was sneaky, but was attacked by Blue Stars Dream and ran out in fright. Soon news that there was something dirty in the small yard spread like wildfire. Later, the dean suppressed it.
Of course, those few medicine children disappeared afterwards as well…
If not for that, Qian Wanyu would’ve definitely cleaned them up herself.
Dongfang Minghui was surprised, but more than that amazed, according to her projection, Blue Stars Dream would need five years before it could return to that previous appearance.
It must be because of the spiritual energy gathering object inside the yard!
She suddenly thought of a brilliant idea, since even Blue Stars Dream could recover quickly, if she was also near the location of Bluestar Dream, couldn’t she also get well quickly?
Unfortunately, although her solution seemed good, she couldn’t speak!
Knowing her dilemma, Love Flower, seemed to understand her mind a little, it immediately jumped out from within the space ring and jumped to Qian Wanyu’s front.
It shook its flower and pointed a small leaf, then ran away from her.
Qian Wanyu originally did not understand what the meaning was but after Love Flower made several demonstrations back and forth she followed the other party out and saw that Love Flower was running to where Blue Star Dream was rooted.
“Are you are trying to tell me that there is a thing under Blue Star Dream that can help you?” Qian Wanyu asked.
Dongfang Minghui blinked, blinked, and blinked again.
“Will that thing help you recover?”
She blinked again and suddenly felt that the Female Protagonist was too smart being able to understand so fast. But whether it worked or not, she would only know after using it.
Qian Wanyu pondered for a moment, looking at Love Flower who had rooted itself there as well, she asked in a daze, “You’re trying to say you want to go over there to be near like Love Flower right?”
The meaning was spot on, talking to smart people was really easy and convenient.
Together with a capable sidekick like Love Flower, Dongfang Minghui blinked three more times.
“Okay, I understand.”
Qian Wanyu hurriedly went out for a trip, soon Nan Nan came over with her and said, “You finally woke up, you don’t even know that when Wanyu saw your unconscious she went so crazy from the anxiety she spent all her days going to the arena to challenge all the famous people always coming home bruised and injured it really made us uncomfortable…”
Dongfang Minghui blinked, seventh sister really cared so much about her?
