Little Colour huffed and puffed and moved the vines behind it to her. One of its vines had several strange types of grass tied to it, one was in a knot shape, looking comically like a vine with a twisted braid.
It nonchalantly used its vine to heavily slam those grasses to the ground, pick them up again, and slam them several more times to relieve its boredom all night.
“Knock, knock, knock.”
With every moment Little Colour slammed the grasses, Dongfang Minghui heard the familiar knocking sound, when she reacted she managed to confirm that it came out of the grass’ mouth and her jaw dropped open, “Can’t be!”
Yesterday she brainstormed the knocking sound and thought she had encountered some kind of ghost event, how could she have been teased by these few plants.
Dongfang Minghui squatted down and rescued one of the grasses from Little Colour’s vine. They were the same species, with a small fan shape flower on top of their heads and small bodies, she couldn’t help but feel bad for them when she looked at them.
What if these plants walk around one day and land on their heads?
She squeezed the roots of the other side, “Do you know this is my territory?”
“Speak normal grass language.”
The fat doll stroked its forehead, “They’re called knock knock grasses, they don’t speak anything else but the word knock knock.”
Otherwise, it would not be so angry that it wanted to directly extinguish these grasses.
Dongfang Minghui: “……”
So they were all teased by these knock knock grasses?
Qian Wanyu opened her eyes long ago, but the fat doll and Dongfang Minghui were playing so hard that they naturally didn’t notice her, she smiled as she watched the other party chatting seriously with a strain of grass, the conversation didn’t seem very pleasant.
Dongfang Minghui was still trying to negotiate with the other party when she turned around and saw Seventh sister waking up, immediately pinching the roots of the knock knock grass, “Make some noise.”
“Seventh sister, do you hear something?”
Qian Wanyu listened carefully and shook her head, “Not really, what’s wrong?”
No wonder only she could hear strange noises yesterday, but Seventh sister was completely fine, the problem was here.
Dongfang Minghui tossed the knock knock grass aside, “I don’t know who it was that played such a big joke on me and actually scared me with a few knock knock grasses.”
It’s a good thing she had Little Colour with her, if there were a few more, she would have been scared out of her wits.
“What’s the situation? Talk to me.”
Qian Wanyu didn’t know what was going on, but with Ninth Sister’s pale face when she opened the door yesterday and her impulse to kill with the plum blossom nails, she figured something strange and weird had happened during her absence.
Dongfang Minghui also did not hide what happened, she summarised that yesterday night she heard knocking on the door and Little Colour caught the knock knock grasses.
“Could it be that the spiritual energy in the courtyard is so abundant that it attracts them?” Qian Wanyu suddenly asked, she had seen many medicinal plants that had opened their wisdom want to soak in the yard such as Love Flower and Blue Star Dream they all took the initiative to select the most favourable location for them to grow.
In addition, Qing Mo had reminded her that there was a treasure hidden in the ground in the small courtyard, and Qian Wanyu had a bold guess as to what it was.
The fat doll stepped on them fiercely.
Dongfang Minghui heard a series of rhythmic ‘knocking’ sounds in her mind. Instinctively, she felt uncomfortable all over her body when she heard these sounds, and her back hair raised up.
“Don’t step on them, Little Colour throw them into the small yard and see if they will find their own place to live.”
The fat baby wrapped its arms around its chest, and pulled them one by one to the small courtyard with extreme disdain. The vines were lifted high up in the air, swayed twice, and then slammed to the ground fiercely. The grasses were knocked out directly by Little Colour and fainted so no more noises came out.
“It’s not dead, is it?”
“Blue Star Dream, let’s whip them a little.”
After Little Colour finished speaking, the vines behind it and the thorny branches attached to the wall from Blue Star Dream danced in the air, one to the left and one to the right, flicking them back and forth.
Seeing that their vines were about to hit the knock knock grass, Dongfang Minghui covered her face and couldn’t bear to look at it, Little Colour was simply too evil, even if he was doing bad things, it had to bring down Blue Star Dream too.
As soon as the grasses that were lying on the ground saw this, they immediately got up from the ground, and ran far away from Blue Star Dream to settle in.
They ploughed the soil directly and buried themselves.
Fat doll towards Dongfang Minghui cast a you’re wrong again expression. It retracted the vines, ran to the grass, stomped on the dirt around them several times, and finally sat its ass next to them.
Seeing that they were all at peace, Dongfang Minghui also let out a sigh of relief. She couldn’t help thinking that these grasses came running here today. If something weird came in again another day, would she be falsely alarmed again?
“Seventh sister, do you think we can just set up a kind of formation to wrap the spiritual energy of the small courtyard to keep people from coveting it?”
She even thought about digging a secret passage or something that would lead from the courtyard to the outside world, so that if Seventh sister was ever discovered to be carrying dark spiritual energy, at least they could escape from here.
Qian Wanyu nodded, “I know what you mean, today I will give you an answer.”
“Seventh sister, where are you going?”
“To the library.”
Even if Dongfang Minghui did not mention it, she had thought about setting up a boundary, or a formation in the small courtyard, now it seems that a formation is a little more reliable, “Qing Mo, I want to learn about formations now, please guide me a little.”
Qing Mo was so angry from her words that he almost vomited blood, just thinking about how he persuaded fooled and tried to trick the other party before she firmly expressed no interest in the studies of formations. Now just because of a broken courtyard it suddenly made her willing to ask for lessons…
“Now you want to learn? I don’t want to teach now hmph.”
Qian Wanyu did not change her face and continued to walk towards the library, she had a way to make sure the other party would not be able to resist instructing her later.
“Pharmacist Qian, recently did you get some new medicinal plants?” Little Junyi asked curiously after he finished watering.
“Yes, there are a few more plants recently, but they are not medicinal plants, they are knock knock grass.”
Hearing this explanation from the other party, Wei Junyi understood, he wondererd how he always felt that there were more things in the small courtyard, it always seemed to be off, turns out to be a few grasses, “Got it, Pharmacist Qian.”
Dongfang Minghui did not pay much attention to his words, she cleaned up and ran to the dean’s office, she looked through the notebook, and tool out one porcelain bottle of black mist, then took some of the Love Flower leaf from the two love flower leaves she was given and put a piece on the table, later she will be use them to refine potions and continue to do experiments.
“No way, I can’t believe I forgot?”
She rummaged around in space and found that today she was so confused that she had actually forgotten to bring a scented flower, which is an auxiliary medicine, putting it together with the Love Flower leaves could assist in maximizing their effect.
Dongfang Minghui looked again, the result is still nothing there.
“Strange, I remember that last time I clearly took two plants.”
In any case, before doing the experiment since she found medicinal plants missing, she certainly can’t continue. Dongfang Minghui took all the plants back into her space ring, she has a habit if grouping things together if they were similar like a stack for notebooks and a stack for plants etc.
The leaves of the Love Flower were in the space where Love Flower and Lucky often played, because it is more valuable, she would like to let the two medicinal plants look after it personally.
“Love Flower .”
She put it in and noticed something was wrong, she clearly took out a Love Flower leaf and placed it right next to the porcelain vase, now there was a porcelain vase left on the table and the love flower leaf next to it was missing, she looked at the space ring and there was just one left.
The moment she was looking for something, the Love Flower leaf on the table disappeared?
Dongfang Minghui hairs on the back of her hand were erected again, like the day before the same bizarre feeling popped up again.
Love Flower emerged from the space ring, “You said you were going to continue to study? How come you packed up your stuff?”
“One of your leaves is missing, just now, I remember I put it on the table.” Dongfang Minghui said within her consciousness.
As soon as it heard that its leaf might have been stolen, Love Flower directly pulled Lucky out of the space ring and ran out, gazing at the table underneath and shuttling around the room, “Didn’t find anything ah, did you forget?”
Dongfang Minghui stroked her forehead, it was two leaves that she had gone to a lot of trouble and effort to ask for from the other party, she could not have forgotten to bring the Love Flower leaves even if she had forgotten the auxiliary medicine, “Do you think it’s possible?”
She rubbed her head, rummaged around and cleaned out her space ring then suddenly found a packet from a nook of the space ring that she had almost forgotten about.
“I’ll go look for Seventh sister.”
Qian Wanyu is a person who does what she says she will do. Since that day she said she would go to the Library, she read books on formations for several days, and occasionally returned to the small courtyard to set a few stones on the stone table to constantly set up various formations.
Dongfang Minghui looked at it once and her eyes couldn’t make heads or tails of it so she didn’t see a reason to continue studying it.
She first returned to the room then took out a bright orange cystal from her space ring and she picked Toothless up, “Little Toothless, you seem to have gotten a lot lazier recently, I’ll take you out for a walk.”
Toothless responded with a few cheerful owls.
Dongfang Minghui walked halfway, and Toothless scratched its ears, she was worried about leaving Toothless alone in the room in case its dangerous.
She searched the library for a long time before she found Seventh sister, who had been surrounded with books.
Qian Wanyu was sitting in the middle of a pile of books, beside her were all books about the beginner’s introduction, intermediate introduction, and the evolution of formations etc. Dongfang Minghui picked one up at random and read it, but couldn’t read it at all!
It turns out that she has no talent for formations and boundaries…
Qian Wanyu listened but did not hear or not notice Dongfang Minghui’s arrival, even with the other party calling twice she did not hear, she was reading and her hands were moving to imitate what was on the books.
Seeing her so focused, Dongfang Minghui didn’t dare to still disturb her, she silently sat aside, thinking about the strange things that happened recently, one after another, she used her consciousness to communicate with Love Flower, “Could it be the pig immortal grass?”
Seventh sister said today that this cunning spirit grass would come to her to take back its strange and exotic treasures.
“From the style, it kind of looks like something it would do.”
Love flower has seen clearly the nature of this pig immortal grass, first-class escape technique, cunning and it loved to set traps for others, tsk, it really had never seen such a shameless medicinal plant, where exactly did it run out from?
Dongfang Minghui also felt like the other side had this style, if the previous knock knock grass thing is also the work of the pig immortal grass, she really should properly tie it up to settle accounts.
“Can’t be so passive every time after all.”
The other party scared her for a night and Love Flower’s leaf also got stolen, hey, she suddenly found this medicinal plant actually had the potential of a first-class thief! Maybe she should introduce it to the Thief Master…
Thinking of this, Dongfang Minghui giggled.
She really has not seen such a naughty medicinal plant, when was she so easy to bully huh?
“Don’t laugh so disgustingly, did you think of any good method?”
The things that can attract the attention of Love Flower, in the seven-colored continent, there are only two, one of them is the poisonous fake medicine and the second is this pig immortal grass.
“Let’s dig a trap and let the other party jump in voluntarily.”
Dongfang Minghui waited for about a day in the library, Qian Wanyu pondered while rehearsing on the side, and only after it was over did she look up slightly, and saw the other party looking at her with a dumbfounded face.
Dongfang Minghui nodded her head, she was neither sitting here to practice nor leaving.
“Looking for me?”
“The pig immortal grass seems to have found us.”
As soon as Qian Wanyu heard this, she stood up and pulled the other person up as well, “Go, help Seventh sister put these books back to their original position.”
It took more than an hour for the two of them to stuff all the books back into their original places.
“No way, Seventh sister, you’re taking all these books out?”
If Ninth Sister hadn’t come, she would probably stay in the library, after all, the days without any disturbance passed especially fast, plus she had just gained some insights from her research on the formations and this time was perfect to practice it.
The two of them went out of the library.
When the two of them went out, Qian Wanyu said, “Did something happen again?”
Once she mentioned this, Dongfang Minghui still felt a little bit of pain, if she lost something else maybe she will not want to settle accounts with the pig immortal grass, but the other side took a Love Flower leaf!
“It took a Love Flower leaf.”
Qian Wanyu instantly understand why the other was so sullen. Since Toothless’ forelimbs were tainted with black fog, her Ninth Sister dug in with all her might to crack the black fog, the love flower leaf was considered the most important part of any of her experiments now she usually only saw her use a tiny part for each experiment.
“Since the other side, Ninth Sister what do you want to do?”
“Don’t want to do anything, we’ll lure it into a jar, and then catch it!”
After the two went back, Qian Wanyu continued to study her formations taking some stones and practicing it right on the stone table.
“What kind of formation do you want to set up in this small courtyard?” Qing Mo curiously asked, looking at her recent period of study, as well as the creation of those small formations, Qing Mo was a little ashamed, he spent about fifteen years learning formations and didn’t understand anything for the first few years. It took him three years to get a little hang of it…
The other side only read books like crazy so her head was full of a variety of formations but she was not willing to take the old path, she studied the evolution of formations at the same time and even had no teacher to teach her how to make new formations!
Although the formation methods she had now were just average, Qing Mo believed that, given enough time to grow, Qian Wanyu could become another generation of Formation Master.
Qian Wanyu suddenly remembered what Ninth Sister said, and the corners of her mouth turned up slightly, “Let’s call it the urn formation.”
A new specially prepared formation to catch those naughty plants…
