“Oh, isn’t this the one from the Nangong family?”
“It seems to be, look how handsome it looks.”
Downstairs there were cheering sounds, the crowd was surging, the women’s shouting kept rising and falling, sitting upstairs the bored Dongfang Minghui also heard the screams outside so she was curious and looked down.
“Seventh sister, come and see.”
Qian Wanyu was just like an old woman, she walked to the window slowly, and didn’t poke her head out like Ninth Sister, she looked down from afar and saw the young man in the crowd who just came down from a pallaquin, with sword brows and starry eyes, his face was handsome and there were a dozen slender women beside him gracefully and elegantly opening the way for him. W
Walking through a section, they scattered some pink flower petals until the entire area became a sea of flowers.
“Seventh sister, I suddenly thought of the second stage of my skill.”
Those flowers downstairs were not the highest realm of Heavenly Maiden scattering flowers but if she can make the flowers move without wind and drift as her heart desires, what a beautiful sight it would be. Also, since it was a skill, it could also silently kill people…
Qian Wanyu saw her eyebrows all lit up, “I’ll help you search for some flower petals for you to practice your skills when we get back.”
Dongfang Minghui nodded, she had been completely immersed in the second stage of her skill, she hadn’t found a proper opportunity to practice before, but she didn’t expect that Nangong Yuntian wasn’t useless. At least his show off habits had given her some inspiration.
“They’re already coming up.”
Dongfang Minghui shuddered when she saw that Li Jing had welcomed the people off and was climbing up the stairs, probably not long after that, the people were going to arrive. She quickly stood up and respectfully held Seventh sister’s disguised old hand, “Building owner, please sit first.”
Qian Wanyu nodded her head and her eyes signalled to the teapot.
She immediately served tea and poured some water, and only after doing all this did she go behind her and stand quietly.
Inside the room, it was so quiet that only the sound was that of both of them breathing as well as the slight sound of Qian Wanyu sipping tea.
Until Li Jing came knocking on the door and said, “Building master, young master Nangong has arrived.”
Qian Wanyu’s hoarse false voice was even older than expected, but it contained an unspeakable strength.
The moment the door opened, Dongfang Minghui almost subconsciously straightened her back and raised her chin. Facing a ‘harem’ love rival, one must maintain good fighting strength to not lose the battle.
“Building owner, hearing it over a hundred times is not as good as seeing it in person.”
Nangong Yuntian the moment he saw Qian Wanyu, his eyes had a momentary pause and his facial expression froze, even the smile at the corners of his mouth stiffened. He probably did not expect the Rose House Building Owner to actually be an old woman?
Qian Wanyu’s eyes were cold, she still held the teacup in her hand and slightly covered the corners of her mouth with a smile, to give Nangong Yuntian such a big reaction gave her great satisfaction, at least this makeup wasn’t a waste of time.
“Young master Nangong.”
Li Jing was standing behind Qian Wanyu since she entered the room, the same as Dongfang Minghui.
Nangong Yuntian left all the women who came with him before downstairs, he’d considered going to this appointment just to see Qian Wanyu’s ‘real face’, but all his resentment had to just be swallowed into his belly at reality.
After the two were seated, Dongfang Minghui poured tea and water for him as well with a very good service like attitude, but every time he turned around she couldn’t help but roll her eyes, which just fell into the eyes of Qian Wanyu and Li Jing.
“Young Master Nangong, this time you are invited to come for the ten medicinal plants from Yuntian Pavilion.”
Qian Wanyu took out the medicinal plants list from her space ring and pressed it in the middle of the table, she raised her eyes and looked at the other party, “What conditions does young master Nangong have, tell me by all means.”
Nangong Yuntian looked at her with a smile, “Building Owner, I’m not going to hide it from you, the ten medicinal plants listed in your list are rare and it took some effort for my people to gather them all. But to say what conditions, hey you are being too unfamiliar. Rose House has always been a friend of our Yuntian Pavilion, to give you these medicinal plants with both hands is not impossible.”
Qian Wanyu quietly drank her tea, completely unmoved by his words, she knew that this was just an appetizer and he was preparing for the main event.
Nangong Yuntian saw the other party’s attitude and it seemed as if she did not take the ten medicinal plants seriously, he couldn’t help but secretly speculate whether he’d bet wrongly, “Since we are friends, I believe that you also hope that our two families can maintain this friendship. I have a proposal that will be beneficial to both of us.”
Finally, he’d gotten to the key point. Qian Wanyu put down the tea cup casually, “Young master Nangong, please speak.”
Nangong Yuntian quietly said, “Our Nangong family throughout generations each family member only had a single child, until my generation there is only me left and my mother died early…”
Seeing the other side suddenly jump from a treacherous business man to a poor single child all of a sudden, Dongfang Minghui was a little dumbfounded, she did not know what the other side was about to say to have all this backstory, but soon her jaw dropped.
“In fact, I came today to ask for marriage to you on behalf of my father.”
Qian Wanyu’s hands directly burst the teacup into pieces, the fragments also flew directly to Nangong Yuntian’s face, if he hadn’t dodged fast enough, that tender face would probably be ruined with scars.
“Hey hey, Building owner, please do not be angry, you are not married, my father is also alone, why not support each other in old age.”
“Jing, send out the guest.”
Qian Wanyu had never seen such a direct person, for the purpose of this meeting to just be trying to ask for marriage, the words evaluating him outside were too good, if she were to evaluate, a single word – cheap.
“Hey building owner.”
“Young master Nangong , please.”
Nangong Yuntian also knew that he said the wrong thing, he originally intended to propose his own marriage, but who would have thought the Rose House owner would look like this… He’d inevitably babbled a bit in frustration. But since the matter has come to this, he couldn’t say anything more.
“The medicinal plants that are needed by the Building Owner I will let Yuntian Pavilion prepare them and present it to you with both hands another day.”
Qian Wanyu didn’t even look at him, if not for the ten medicinal plants, she even wanted to break his neck.
Dongfang Minghui has never seen the Female Protagonist’s face so angry, love rival or whatever suddenly turned into a deadly enemy, he actually dared to propose marriage in front of her, and even better it was on behalf of his father!
When they all went downstairs, Qian Wanyu suddenly asked.
Dongfang Minghui covered her mouth and laughed, mainly because Seventh sister’s makeup was too shocking, it was so powerful that face to face it instantly killed a love rival and helped her solve a big problem. Additionally, Seventh sister now seems to have a very bad impression of Nangong Yuntian.
It was simply a double win.
Qian Wanyu also couldn’t help but curl the corners of her mouth, but the words that came out were half polite, “Little Nine, come and hold me.”
Dongfang Minghui giggled and ran, holding the other side’s arm, and asked in a small voice, “Just now Nangong Yuntian’s last words were not true right? Isn’t it rumoured in the outside world that he is a treacherous businessman who eats people without spitting bones and only makes deals where he can profit?”
“The outside world’s evaluation of him is true, he generously sent ten medicinal plants as a small compensation but with the Nangong family’s background, ten medicinal plants is nothing, even if he took out a hundred medicinal plants I also think he could do it.”
Don’t look at the other party seemingly acting nonchalantly, he was actually testing his bottom line, if she hadn’t sent him out today, more shocking things would come out of his mouth. Anyway, from just the exterior age, she was considered and elder while he was a junior.
If she had let this nonsense of his go, tomorrow she could guarantee Nangong Yuntian would twist the words of the conversation and publicise it outside in his favour.
Dongfang Minghui was completely unaware that just from the two people speaking a few words, there were so many things involved in the middle. Hidden daggers flying everywhere.
It seems that she was happy too early, with the other party’s shameless behaviour, in the future, if he managed to see Seventh sister’s real face, he’d most likely be obsessed.
“But it’s okay, it just so happens that I also have a gift for him.”
Qian Wanyu had already prepared a complete plan, just in case the other party didn’t play by the rules.
She really felt that the Female Protagonist’s brain was too smart to see through.
Qian Wanyu saw her looking with an adoring face and smiled slightly then rubbed the other party’s hair, “Let’s go, go back.”
The next day, Nangong Yuntian really did as he said, there were ten medicinal plants and not only that, just like his first appearance, he appeared in a very high profile at the Rose House even more grand than yesterday in fact!
Qian Wanyu did not dress up using a normal dress to appear on the third floor to look at him, Dongfang Minghui also came together to look at the side, she couldn’t help but shake her head. She really did admire this tawdry Nangong Yuntian from the bottom of her heart. He was also a second-generation young master but he had used the family’s ancestral wealth to establish the Yuntian Pavilion, with the auctions always causing a huge boom. On the contrary, Lu Peng, also considered the only son of a great wealthy man, not only did disgraceful acts but was also talentless and useless, these two people couldn’t be compared at all.
“Seventh sister, you’re not going down to see him?”
Qian Wanyu just sat in the room, and asked strangely, “Why should I see him?”
Dongfang Minghui smiled brightly and thought yes, she definitely should not see, the more contact they had the easier it was for hearts to change, she came over with a pleased face and said, “Seventh sister, I am curious what sort of gift did you send to Nangong Yuntian?”
“Want to know?”
Dongfang Minghui nodded repeatedly, looking at Seventh sister’s impression of Nangong Yuntian, it should not be a good thing so this time the gift ……
Qian Wanyu poured her a glass of water, “In fact, it is nothing, before didn’t Nangong Yuntian say that his family only had him? I asked Li Jing to check the history of the Nangong family and found that his old man had also raised two lovers outside, as to whether there anything after, this matter will depend on him to check.”
Seeing the Female Protagonist say those words with a calm face, Dongfang Minghui had no idea how to describe how black-hearted the Female Protagonist was.
She had thought that the Female Protagonist had suffered a secret loss, and if the other party openly tried to please her, she could not refuse. Who expected that she’d turn around and set a fire to the Nangong family’s backyard, tsk, Nangong Yuntian temporarily wouldn’t have time to pester Seventh sister.
Not long after, Li Jing knocked on the door of the room.
“Young master, young master Nangong said thank you for the information you provided, it was very helpful, and when his family business is settled, he will personally come to say thank you.” Li Jing also imitated the other party’s gnashing of teeth style while saying it which amused Dongfang Minghui to no end.
“Young master, I brought up the ten medicinal plants, should I bring them to the room?”
“Just bring them up directly.”
She went around and around, just for these twenty-three medicinal plants, their journey in Yundu City would soon be done, soon they’ll depart back to the Snow Capital, the medicinal plant’s matter could temporarily be left to the other sisters in the Rose House.
Dongfang Minghui also wanted to search for medicinal plants for Seventh sister, with her knowledge, she could determine that there were nine medicinal plants in the Royal Academy, but it was not clear whether all the nine plants would compete with the ten plants from the Yuntian Pavilion.
When Li Jing brought it up, she went over and looked at it, and after reading it, she couldn’t help but giggle.
“Only four are the same.”
Qian Wanyu frowned, before reacting to what the other party said, “Ninth Sister you mean, you know all the other medicinal plants?”
Dongfang Minghui was busy shaking her head as she held out a palm, “There should be some on the hill behind the academy, I’ll try to get them when I get back.”
With this, it was almost fifteen medicinal plants, but eight medicinal plants were still missing.
Qian Wanyu originally thought that by gathering two mercenary groups, it should not be difficult to find eight medicinal plants, but later she realized that she had thought too simply.
The medicinal plants’ matter was put aside for the time being, the matter of Yundu City was over. Dongfang Minghui was anxious to return to the royal academy because of the black mist on the forelimbs of Toothless, and Qian Wanyu after arranging some remaining matters embarked on the return journey with her.
The two of them went out this time to experience and had a lot of gains, especially Qian Wanyu, her dark system spiritual power has reached the ninth level spiritualist stage, still a little short of advancing. On the contrary, Dongfang Minghui felt that her biggest gain from this training trip was probably – Seventh sister.
“Seventh sister, do you think Lu Xing has returned to the academy?”
Dongfang Minghui is still worried, she was afraid that if a male lead died and another copy couldn’t be found then the whole world would collapse, she was really scared of death!
Qian Wanyu shook her head, “Don’t worry, he should be fine.”
In fact, when she returned to Yundu City, she had Li Jing send people out to find useful information, hoping to find Lu Xing’s whereabouts. But unfortunately, nothing was found.
“I hope so.”
The two of them rushed for three consecutive days before they found a random inn in the area to rest. The inn was extremely simple, and there were only two or three guests coming and going.
When Qian Wanyu was booking a room, Dongfang Minghui took a look around and saw someone who looked particularly familiar.
The other person was hiding in the far corner, and there were only one or two dishes on the table, which he was quietly eating. His movements were very slow, like an old man in his late age. A quick glance revealed that he had an aura that was out of place from the others, and he carried an iron box behind him, it was so huge that it almost blocked his entire body.
Dongfang Minghui saw the side of the other man’s face, it was a face as memorable as a knife carving, and as she cocked her head to take a closer look, she was pulled away by the Female Protagonist.
“Ninth Sister, go away.”
“Strange, I must have seen him somewhere.”
It was like the novel was in her head, the people she had seen in the Seven Colored Continent, she could draw them out from the plot and sort out the people who were beneficial or harmful to the Female Protagonist so she always remembered especially well. But that person just now, it seemed that he didn’t belong to either category.
“Seventh sister, do you remember when we were in the magical beast forest before, I saw a person…” Dongfang Minghui shook her head. She saw it, but the Female Protagonist didn’t. It was like a person who watched her from afar in the forest.
She was not sure whether the other party was carrying a huge iron box at that time, perhaps the light was too dim or the other party’s body blocked the iron box.
Qian Wanyu did remember such an incident, but at that time she thought Ninth Sister was distracted, if there was someone there, how could she not notice? Now that she heard the other party mention the previous scene, she had to pay attention to it.
She found that Ninth Sister’s sensitivity to dangerous things was very high. She often just finished talking before and what she said would happen ended up happening later.
“The man in the forest, what was strange about him?”
“Hmm, I think the iron box he was carrying on his back was a very powerful weapon, and ah, I think the man’s facial expression was very stiff, especially-”
