“Zhuoxi, did everything go well on this trip?”
As soon as she came home, Qian Zhuoxi went to the main hall to look for her father, who was the head of Qian Family at the moment.
For him to be the head actually made the rest of the Qian Family astonished.
He was the third child in the family, not considered the most talented person, mediocre qualifications in everything and he had a gifted elder brother, the next child his fourth sister awakened three spiritual powers as a child as well. One big and one small were like pearls that made the Qian Family shine brighter and brighter in the Empire. On the contrary, he was caught in the middle, often overlooked and unimpressive.
Among all of the Qian Family’s elders, none of them felt that he could inherit the family business. But, by some random chance, he did.
“Father, everything is fine, nothing major happened.” Qian Zhuoxi went out this time to discuss the matter of cooperation with the Nangong Family’s Yuntian Pavilion, she met Nangong Yuntian himself, and the other party offered very attractive terms, “If I really have to say anything, it’s probably-”
“Family master, it’s not good, someone has forced his way into our back mountain, and now the person has broken into the fourth peak!”
The Qian Family had nine peaks in the back of the mountain, the peaks were connected, each peak held a small living area, the higher up, the more difficult it was to trespass, it was a good place for the Qian Family’s descendants to practice. Every year when the training for major families and the royal family happened they always used the opportunity to insert a few people to train with the Qian Family children.
Qian Zihang stood up abruptly from his stool, “How many people?!”
Being asked this question, the person who reported it was so ashamed that he could hardly speak, he stammered out, “T-Two people.”
“What!?”, Qian Zhuoxi was shocked.
“Answering the family head and Eldest Miss, in fact, there was only one person who fought, there was a woman who was carried on his shoulders and never made a move.”
Qian Zihang walked back and forth, “The four peak elders haven’t blocked him?”
“I don’t think I’ve seen them make a move.”
“Forget it, immediately take me to see what the situation is.”
Qian Zhuoxie followed her father and hurried to the mountain.
“Wood, what are you doing running to the back mountain of the Qian Family?” She remembered that the original story seemed to mention the source of the Qian Family nine peaks, but at first she smiled at the author’s overtly long-winded writing and ignored it therefore now she had no knowledge of the nine peaks…
Wood was carrying her with one hand and fighting the Qian Family’s guarding disciples with another hand, handling all of them with ease. Dongfang Minghui concluded from the various wailing noises around that they were not in danger for the time being. But excluding those mountain-guarding elders, these were all elders from the Qian Family who have lived for a long time.
Dongfang Minghui was actually in despair, if she was free now she’d have bailed long ago but this Wood only knows how to do bad things while carrying her, simply digging a big pit for her to jump into along with him, “Wood, show some mercy to them, it’ll be easier to make an excuse later…”
“Who is it?! Why do you want to break into the back of my Qian Family?”
An extremely loud voice, full of penetrating power caused only the Qian Family disciples to cover their ears, but even Wood temporarily stopped. Dongfang Minghui covered her ears and her mind went blank. When encountering these powerful people, with her current cultivation base, she’d get killed in a minute.
The other party waited for a long time, but no one answered him.
Dongfang Minghui shook her head and realized that the surrounding atmosphere was awkward before she came back to her senses. She immediately shouted, “Actually, this is a misunderstanding.”
She was tired, Wood this bad guy randomly did bad things and she had to desperately to explain it for him…
She had just finished saying it was a misunderstanding when Wood kicked the Qian Family man who was about to sneak up on them and sent him flying ten meters away where he fell to the ground, spitting blood.
Dongfang Minghui: “……”
Wood continued to move forward like no one’s business, his goal seemed to be the ninth peak.
“Arrogant! Qian Family disciples listen to orders and set up the formation.”
Set up the formation!!!
She remembered that the Qian Family had a very powerful formation called the Ten Thousand Clans Returning to the Heart Formation, where all things return to the origin and all the laws return to the heart. This is a formation that only 81 – 99 people and once the formation was formed, few people in the world could escape.
“Fuck! I hope it’s not that broken formation!” Dongfang Minghui was close to reciting Amitabha Buddha!
Before her prayer was heard by heaven, she saw a group of people dressed in white descend in front of them, surrounding her and Wood in a circle, their silhouettes were shown quickly in front of her, she blinked, and more and more people circled around them as it got smaller and smaller with two then three circles of people.
These people were different from the group of people just now, they all had very balanced spiritual power, the weakest was above the fifth rank of Spiritual Master. The most important thing was that the formation strength was not based on individual strength, but the whole group’s combined strength. Dongfang Minghui immediately knew something was wrong.
When Wood saw this, he probably realized that things would get a little tricky and took her off his shoulders.
“You-” Dongfang Minghui was so angry that she almost bit off her teeth, she immediately summoned Little Colour, “Little Colour, come out and fight.”
The fourth mountain peak had green grass and trees everywhere, some trees were towering like mountains, there was one standing not far from her, Little Colour’s vines dug deep into the ground, scampering nimbly and bound the roots of those trees together.
“If only Mu Sheng was here.” She missed Mu Sheng’s little summon that could emit poisonous smoke when people weren’t looking. Now there were so many people here it’d be useful…
“This formation.” The Pig Fairy Grass suddenly turned into a small grass and stayed next to Dongfang Minghui’s feet, rubbing it, “Actually, the Ten Thousand Clans Returning to the Heart Formation is extended from the Sword Cultivator’s Ten Thousand Clans Returning to One.”
Dongfang Minghui was dumbfounded, was this grass discussing the mysteries of formations with her? She was a formation illiterate, if Seventh sister was here maybe she could still understand some of it.
“If you have seen that formation before you’ll know that it is actually quite simple, although the form changes the essence is the same, I see that you do not seem to understand, I will demonstrate it to you.” The pig fairy grass just waved its curly tail and it felt Little Colour’s vines under the ground.
Dongfang Minghui saw the pig fairy grass suddenly split, turning into three plants at once, all three wiggling their fat ears toward her at the same time.
“Pig Fairy Grass, which one is the real you?!”
Dongfang Minghui was amazed. How come she never knew that pig fairy grass could do transformation on top of illusions, it was simply too amazing.
“All three are me but at the same time none of them are.”
Next, the pig fairy grass turned back into one, still remaining in its original position, “Do you understand?”
Dongfang Minghui for the first time found the pig fairy grass quite cute, although it was actually serious now she did scrape through what it was, “Is it that those eighty-one people are actually a single person and they will eventually merge into one?”
The pig fairy grass shook its fat leaves and went back into the space ring all of a sudden.
At the same time, the formation unfolded.
Dongfang Minghui thought suspiciously, “That shouldn’t be right, just now the Pig Fairy Grass meant that this formation was extended from the original, so the eighty-one of them would eventually return to one whole, they wanted to completely strangle them by the time the eighty-one of them became one.
Her eyes swept the crowd extremely quickly.
“There are three people missing.”
“Five people missing.”
She looked at them with dazzling eyes and roughly calculated the time. Just as she was calculating when the eighty-one people returned to their places, Wood suddenly unlocked the iron box behind him which had been with him since he appeared.
When the box was opened, it finally revealed its true nature, it was an instrument like a harp with many strings on it and a very neat row of circles next to the strings.
Wood’s whole body emitted a kind of light green spiritual energy with a black thread in the middle, he moved the strings slightly and a murderous aura radiated out from the strings towards the group, the spiritual energy of the strings encountered a strong force and bounced back.
Wood carrying the iron zither dodged the recoil, Dongfang Minghui also dodged and looked back at the big hole, “What a big hole!”
After the formation opened, they automatically formed a protective field to block their attack.
Little Colour heard her call and immediately tumbled out of the mud, bringing along with it the surrounding trees and vines that paved the ground, stopping them from moving around.
“Where did these vines come from?!”
“Cut it off!”
Every time Wood plucked the strings, the spiritual power grew by one point, the spiritual power turned into knife marks scraping the field as he moved persistently, soon, a crack appeared, then two, then three, and it looked like a few more strokes would break it completely!
“It’s almost over.” Dongfang Minghui also aimed at the cracks in the field and shot out many flying needles, they all bounced to various places when they met it, “It’s so hard.”
Not only that, the boundary that was about to break had healed a little bit as well, also a lot of Little Colour’s vines have been cut off. Although the formation slowed down a lot, it was still running.
“This can’t go on.”
Dongfang Minghui racked her brains, if Pig Fairy Grass was right, the single person among the eighty-one people who remained the same should be the person leading the formation, if she can find this person and strike, does that mean breaking the formation?
“Wood, you’re the fastest, can you see who’s the one leading?”
Her words just fell and then she saw Wood rushed out a long way and directly stretched out his fingers to tear open the field, in the constant circulating and rotating formation he managed to grab a person. He was immediately met with a siege by all of the people around but he gritted his teeth and blocked all of them kicking the person to Dongfang Minghui’s front.
Dongfang Minghui didn’t mind, Little Colour’s vines sprang out from the ground and trapped the person’s whole body in a fixed cage, gluing him to the ground.
“No good, Zixiao got caught by them.”
“Wood, come back.”
The formation almost managed to hurt Wood, but there were so many people wrapped around him, Dongfang Minghui was furious at them as well and flying needles shot out from the broken field, unceremoniously shooting into those who were defenseless.
Then, Little Colour’s vines wrapped around the ankles and waist of the men, pulling them back together with Wood as they retreated back.
A ship without the captain couldn’t navigate. With the formation leader gone, the formation naturally became chaotic.
The formation immediately slowed down a little bit until it stopped completely and the people got caught in the vines and branches tying up their feet. All eighty-one people instantly fell apart.
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t believe it, the formation was broken! The Qian Family’s formation was broken by her and Wood!
“Be thankful for this grass.” Pig Fairy Grass emerged with its pig ears twitching, its fat leaves patted Dongfang Minghui’s hand as it took the most credit.
“Heh fine fine.”
But they hadn’t yet left the Qian Family territory, she was always on guard.
If she didn’t understand the meaning of the formation, when they merged into one, she would really be powerless, so she would wait until they returned to a safe place to treat pig fairy grass.
Wood closed the iron box with his zither again.
Dongfang Minghui rolled her eyes, she was curious before what he had been carrying, who knew it was actually a strange-shaped zither, but the other party made it seem like some soft of treasure, “Wood, just like this you want to continue to go up?”
“The two of you are good.”
Qian Zihang was very surprised when he heard that the formation was broken, since he took over the Qian Family that’s never happened! Not to mention the other side only had two people, he suddenly got the idea to meet them personally. Qian Zhuoxi followed him to the fourth peak.
“What are you guys…and who are you..?”
He looked up and saw Wood looking at him expressionlessly, the familiar face made him take three steps backwards in horror, he stared wide-eyed for a long time and incoherently stammered, “Y-y-you are big brother?!!”
“Father, are you all right?” Qian Zhuoxi saw that he was not standing still and went forward to give him a hand.
“What?!” Dongfang Minghui couldn’t believe her ears, why did she feel like she was hearing things, big brother? Who’s big brother?
She looked at the other party dressed in the Qian Family formal clothes with a large Qian character on the chest. The other party emitted an air of majesty and the group of people behind him were very respectful, the other party seemed likely to be the Qian Family’s head or something right?
The girl next to him seemed even more familiar.
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes widened as she made a careful identification, and her jaw dropped wasn’t it the same nervous woman she saw yesterday at the teahouse, mumbling that Wood looked familiar and that she wanted to make friends with them?
So it really was an acquaintance!
There was a meltdown brewing inside her from all these revelations…
“Is it really big brother? I’m your third brother.” Qian Zihang got even more excited, he carelessly moved closer, wanting to have a more intimate reuning with Wood, “Big brother, where have you been all these years? Why haven’t you come home?”
Dongfang Minghui was immersed in brainstorming what she should do and how to explain, before she had time to remind the other side, she saw Wood raised his other leg out of nowhere it was only thanks to Qian Zihang’s similarly strong spiritual energy that he managed to agilely dodge otherwise if this kick hit him, even he most likely would be injured.
“Father, look at uncle, something seems wrong.”
“Hey, hey, how can you talk badly about others? What do you mean something is wrong.” Just a second before, Dongfang Minghui suddenly thought of a brilliant idea, since the other party was likely to be the elder brother of this Qian Family family head, according to the generation, Seventh sister should also have to call Wood uncle. If Lu Xing got together with Wood, wouldn’t he also be a generation above them…? Aiya no, if Wood is the uncle, maybe it can help Seventh sister and Qian Family have a closer relationship.
It should be Seventh sister’s time to take back all her rightful things nothing could be missed.
“Girl, I’m Qian Zihang, dare I ask what is the relationship between you and my big brother? How did you suddenly appear in the Qian Family? And also my big brother he–” After the kick just now, Qian Zihang did not dare to go closer and asked cautiously.
The other party’s question seemed quite tricky, if she answered wrongly… she and Wood would have be exposed.
“Qian Family Master, you have so many questions, which one do you want me to answer? Also do you think this place is a good place to talk?” Dongfang Minghui took a wary look around, there were many people observing and whispering. She didn’t really know how to answer his words either could she say that she was taken here by Wood? Did she dare tell them Wood was…undead?
Tsk, once the words come out, not to mention the Qian Family, everyone else would join up to chase them.
If Wood is really a member of the Qian Family, rushing to the Zilang Empire and then the Qian Family’s back mountain was actually understandable. There were some answers to the questions that she’d been puzzled about before.
Qian Zihang smiled apologetically, “Sorry, it was my poor consideration.” He turned around and said to the girl standing proudly on the side, “Zhuoxi, first arrange two rooms for big brother and this girl, take them to rest first.”
Zhuoxi? Qian Zhuoxi?
Dongfang Minghui was very surprised, this girl had been working against Seventh sister everywhere in the novel, but from yesterday’s behavior from her it didn’t really give her the feeling that she was as bad as she was in the book.”
“Uncle, follow this girl please.”
Dongfang Minghui looked at her two more times, she felt that the other party’s voice seemed a little colder and harsher than yesterday’s, “Good.”
Once she left, Wood also followed.
Qian Zihang gazed at Wood’s departing back with a grave expression.
“Family head, should we inform the old lady?” A person next to him asked in a whisper.
“No need for the time being, back then, big brother and fourth sister’s disappearance gave Mother a heavy blow, now big brother’s situation seems a bit wrong, if we let Mother know, it’ll cause her to be worried and anxious.”
“The family head has considered well.”
After the group walked out a good distance, Dongfang Minghui took a look at Qian Zhuoxi walking in front of her, and then looked at Wood that followed her, she could not help but wonder, yesterday the other party seemed so enthusiastic chasing after them, today why was she cold as frost?
Ah women were also the same as the weather, one time hot the next time cold, no one could figure it out.
“Girl, my uncle looks as if he listens to you a lot?” Qian Zhuoxi felt very strange, she had talked to this eldest uncle but the other party did not say a word, she could only adopt a roundabout strategy. After walking a good distance, only then did she slow down and ask tentatively.
“For big things I listen to him, for small things naturally he listens to me.” Dongfang Minghui secretly rolled her eyes, she couldn’t fall for the other party’s trick so she deliberately replied ambiguously. In truth, many times for all the big things it was Wood making his own decisions, he wanted to come to the Qian Family and carried her without saying anything or giving her any consideration…
The thought that in the future she may have to call him great uncle along with Seventh sister made her face sour up. If Wood was the great uncle… Lu Xing was also a great uncle?
Qian Zhuoxi laughed dryly, “Your relationship looks really enviable, girl, how did you and uncle meet?”
“Our relationship is naturally good, we have never fought.” Dongfang Minghui told a big lie without blushing, she smiled and said, “Actually my life was saved by your uncle, before I met a group of people with bad intentions, they wanted to capture me, your uncle came down from the sky and fought all those people away. I was seriously injured and he treated my wounds and carried me all the way here even though I was a stranger to him…”
Dongfang Minghui finished with a giggle, in her heart she said sorry to Lu Xing. Sorry Lu Xing ah, I need to borrow your story for a bit.
Knowing that she couldn’t get any details, Qian Zhuoxi no longer asked.
“Qian girl, do you have a twin sister in your family or something?”
When she heard what was said Zhuoxi was surprised, “How did you know that I have a twin sister named Zhuoyin?”
Dongfang Minghui secretly said, no wonder! She was wondering why the other party did not mention yesterday’s matter, she really had a twin sister, “I came to Meng City before, I heard someone saying that the Qian Family had a pair of identical flower sisters, so I was curious.”
The two people chatted along the way although both still had misgivings, soon they arrived at the Qian Family home.
A servant immediately greeted.
“Miss is back.”
Qian Zhuoxi nodded slightly and personally led Dongfang Minghui and Wood through the main hall, through the corridor and arranged a residence.
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes darted around, she looked at the Qian Family butlers and maids they all seemed very young. It seems they had all never seen Wood so they completely treated them as strange guests. Wood did not care either as if having no impression of the Qian Family.
“Girl, this is the courtyard where my uncle used to live before, someone has been cleaning it for the past ten years or so, you will stay here for the time being.” After Qian Zhuoxi explained everything properly, a few house servants and maids soon came to attend to them.
“Good day to the master and the girl.”
“There is no need for you to serve here, all of you go back.”
Everyone looked at each other and all retreated, but only to the outside courtyard, ready at stand by.
Dongfang Minghui walked around the small courtyard and sensed, hey, in addition to those family members and maids, there were many Spiritual Master level people guarding behind the wall, probably the Qian Family people acting like thieves to prevent her and Wood from doing anything or they must be playing some kind of trick. She had a plan for this though, she pulled Wood back into the room and forced the person to sit down. First they needed to examine the situation.
Wood’s face was expressionless, he just kept staring at her.
Minghui tried several times to make her voice thicker and eventually produced a deep male-ish sound, “Minghui, listen to my explanation, this is not the case.”
After she finished, she was so scared by her own voice that goose bumps appeared all over the place, but she continued to act happily, switching between male and her own voice. The sound of chatter spread throughout the small courtyard for a time.
Eventually she got a bit tired and stretched her back then lied down to rest.
The person listening on the side of the wall saw the lights dim and the two people seemed to be resting, so the spiritual master secretly went to report to Qian Zhuoxi, “Eldest Miss, this is what happened.”
Qian Zhuoxi nodded, it seems that it is as she expected, the other party should be the beloved person of eldest uncle, otherwise she would not have been brought back to the Qian Family, but…eldest uncle suddenly appeared when she was about to be tested by the peak masters, will it affect her plan?
“Continue to keep an eye on them and write down every word they say then inform me.”
“Yes, Eldest Miss.”
None of them expected that after they left, a few vine branches slowly retracted and returned back to Dongfang Minghui’s side, “Hah, I knew it was her own little trick.”
Today she observed the reaction of the Qian Family head closely, he did not seem to be the type that would order this kind of supervision of Wood.
If this Qian Zhuoxi met Seventh sister and knew that Seventh sister was also a Qian Family person, she’d probably try to trip Seventh sister everywhere. Maybe she should consider getting rid of this person before Seventh sister returned, that might be better.
“Wood, you’re a real demon you know.”
The two of them glared at each other in the dark room, and she lowered her voice to a volume that only the two people could hear, “Wood, we have to find a way to go out and tell Seventh sister what happened.”
She had been thinking about it all night and didn’t expect the opportunity to be delivered to her so soon.
“Miss! Why are you here?”
Qian Zhuoyin pretended to have a serious face, she glanced over with cold eyes, “Has uncle and the other miss woken up yet?”
“Awake.” Dongfang Minghui heard the maid’s voice from a long distance, Qian Zhuoxi really needed to practice her acting skills, doesn’t she know that they could hear her clearly.
When she returned yesterday she overheard father talking to elder sister, and then she found out that elder sister was back.
Dongfang Minghui has some dislike for Qian Zhuoxi, had she known that this girl would be a stumbling block for Seventh sister, she would have wanted to exterminate her earlier. But now they were in the Qian Family, it was better for her and Wood to keep a low profile for the time being, “What wind blew eldest miss here early in the morning?”
“Sure enough, it’s you guys.” As soon as Qian Zhuoyin entered the courtyard, she saw Dongfang Minghui and Wood sitting together painting a very harmonious picture.
The voice of Qian Zhuoyin was much softer than Qian Zhuoxi’s, Dongfang Minghui heard it and raised her eyes, she frowned slightly, “Qian Zhuoyin?”
The expression on the other side’s face was also much softer than Qian Zhuoxi’s. Although the two looked the same, their personalities were completely different. When she saw the other side’s smile, she was able to determine which of the two sisters was which.
“How do you know my name?” Qian Zhuoyin was very surprised, and then added, “You’re quite good, you can actually identify me and my elder sister at a glance.”
Dongfang Minghui suddenly laughed, she really thought about how to get out who knew God would send her a gift, “Should I call you Zhuoyin, or Second Miss?”
“Naturally, Zhuoyin is more friendly, from now on we are all family, I should also call you aunt?”
She spilled a mouthful of water all over the floor and almost choked coughing dryly and pointing at Qian Zhuoyin in pain, she was so shocked that she didn’t know what to say.
“Sorry sorry sorry, are you okay?”
“C-call me Minghui.” Auntie!? What the fuck ah! If Seventh sister knews…she’s gonna be unlucky again.
The other party did not seem to be older than her, and even seemed to be a little younger than her, calling her aunt was indeed a bit too much so she simply agreed, “Minghui, how do you and my uncle know each other?”
Dongfang Minghui took great pains to tell the story of Lu Xing and Wood’s heroic history again, with a rich voice, even she almost had tears from her moving story.
Qian Zhuoyin looked envious, “Wow, so there is such a story between you guys.”
She nodded, then said, “Zhuoyin, the teahouse dim sum we had last time was really delicious, is that a specialty of your Meng City? You see, it’s also my first time, why don’t we go out to eat again?”
“Minghui, it’s still too early, besides, if you really want to eat, I can ask the maids to buy it and bring it here.”
“No, the freshly baked ones are more tasty, the pastries would have cooled down a lot on the way back, they don’t taste as good as the freshly made ones, my mouth is very picky.” Dongfang Minghui puffed out her cheeks, “Since you don’t want to go, I’ll ask your uncle to accompany me later.”
“Minghui you misunderstood, in fact today father wants to host a feast for you guys, if I take you out, it’s a bit -” Qian Zhuoxi had some difficulties, although she was the second young lady, her status in the Qian Family wasn’t much different from the other members, in fact she had even more restrictions.
“Let’s go secretly and return secretly, what do you think?”
“Not here, not there. Your Qian Family has so many rules, Wood let’s go.” Dongfang Minghui huffed and stood up, turned around and left. Wood really followed her, as if he didn’t care if it was the Qian Family or another family.
When Qian Zhuoyin saw that this new aunt of her’s suddenly got angry, although she was young, she was still quite anxious so she immediately went forward to pull her sleeve, “No, I was wrong, aunt, don’t be angry, I’ll take you there, okay?”
“Are you sure?”
Qian Zhuoyin nodded fiercely, “It’s more real than real gold, now you can rest assured.”
Dongfang Minghui knew that their words would soon reach Qian Zhuoxi’s ears but this was the effect she wanted, to secretly send a message to Seventh sister right under her nose.
They followed Qian Zhuoyin in an upright manner out of the building, and everyone on the road yelled out after seeing Qian Zhuoyin, “Eldest Miss!”
Qian Zhuoyin nodded, but she didn’t say anything. She acted a little bit like Qian Zhuoxi.
“Do they often mistake you and your big sister for each other?”
As soon as they walked out of the Qian Family gate, Dongfang Minghui felt freer and in a good mood, with Wood behind them following, he was not making a fuss. It seemed to be peaceful for now.
“Yes.” She slightly enviously came up to Dongfang Minghui’s ear and whispered, “Minghui your relationship with eldest uncle is so sweet, eldest uncle follows you for everything, even going to the street to eat he’s following!”
Her mother and father were very different, the two people were always busy cultivating and doing their own things all year round. The number of times their family of four sat together to eat a meal was few and far in between.
Qian Zhuoyin could not help but sigh.
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes rolled, “He just does not like to talk, you also saw him last time, just a dead face man.”
“Yes, eldest uncle really doesn’t talk much. The first time I saw him, I thought he was going to be a little bit of a jerk.”
“Zhuoyin don’t talk about your uncle for now, let’s talk about you, so as a big miss has the family not given you a marriage? Have you fallen in love with any young master?” Dongfang Minghui acted as an elder and talked about marriage with Qian Zhuoyin in a very sophisticated manner, but of course her final goal was, “Also, your elder sister, she should be of marriageable age like you, right?”
Once she mentioned Qian Zhuoxi, Qian Zhuoyin became depressed, “Big sister has no intention to get married for the time being.”
Aiya the result fell dead on its head.
Dongfang Minghui know that Lu Peng liked Qian Zhuoxi, to the point of willing to fight for her, but seeing Qian Zhuoyin’s face now there was probably a story in the middle, “Hey, Zhuoyin the teahouse is actually not open yet.”
Qian Zhuoyin slapped the back of her head, “Aiya, Minghui sorry, I forgot to tell you.”
“It’s not a big deal, don’t blame yourself for everything, let’s go to some neighborhood of your Meng City and take a stroll, we’ll come back here for pastries in a bit.” Dongfang Minghui did not actually have any intention to eat, she had left her mark in the most abandoned part of this neighborhood before, she had to go again to make sure it was still there.
“This seems good, boss, pack it up for me.”
Dongfang Minghui was a shopaholic buying whatever she fancied, only after a short stroll later, Wood ended up carrying a lot of things in his hands. She obviously had a space ring, but she wanted to let Wood carry it instead as a small retaliation surprisingly he seemed fine with it.
Seeing them acting so ‘loving’ unconsciously reminded Qian Zhuoyin of that marriage, she was in a depressed mood, hanging her head and thinking about various things. They continued walking towards the front, she wasn’t paying attention so she didn’t even know when the person behind her snuck away.
Dongfang Minghui looked around and tossed all the stuff she bought over to Wood. When the other side let down their guard, she immediately flashed inside an alley and quickly left a mark on the wall.
After that, she found the previous mark again, and her eyes widened at the sight of a character for seven next to it.
“Wood, Seventh sister and Lu Xing are in Meng city!” She gleefully shared the good news with Wood, only to have no reaction from the other side.
“Come on, let’s leave a little more information.”
Qian Zhuoyin came back to her senses and turned around and couldn’t see Dongfang Minghui and Wood, “Oops, where did they go?”
Dongfang Minghui left another good mark on the wall, then followed the path she just took to find Qian Zhuoyin, she saw the other party running in her direction from a long distance, she immediately pulled Wood towards a vendor, “Boss, do you sell this?”
This stall in front of her just happened to have lyre samples, it seemed to have samples of small lyres all the way to the big lyres, she looked through a few, and then saw a lyre similar to the weapon Wood used before, “Wood, this is a small version of your weapon, I’ll give it to you as a thank you gift.”
For the first time Wood seemed to show a little reaction. His hand reached out and he took the lyre in his hand, rubbing his thumb over it.
“Hehe you’re free to buy it dear customer.”
When Qian Zhuoyin found them, she was hearing Dongfang Minghui shouting, “Do you know how many spirit stones that boss just stole from me? Even if you like it, you can’t show it, otherwise how else could he scam me like that!”
“Minghui, uncle, what’s wrong with you guys?”
“Actually, it’s nothing.” The displeasure on Dongfang Minghui’s face did not match with her nothing answer.
Qian Zhuoyin snickered at the side, she felt that the couple in front of her were the ones who really knew how to be a husband and wife, she looked up and the smile on her face dropped for a few moments, “Oh no, it’s big sister’s people coming.”
Dongfang Minghui was standing next to Wood with an indifferent face, she just snuck away with Wood before waiting for this Qian Zhuoxi to come out.
“Eldest uncle, eldest aunt.”
Qian Zhuoyin stood aside, not saying anything at all, not even raising her head when she was spoken to.
“Your second sister is very nice, I like her very much, let your second sister accompany your eldest uncle and me back.” Dongfang Minghui chose the most lively place, and even though Qian Zhuoxi lowered her voice, the word eldest uncle had a very far-reaching influence.
In the previous generation, the Qian Family produced two monstrous characters, Qian Ziyan, the eldest son of the Qian Family, and the second was the fourth sister Qian Yiling. At the age of three, Qian Ziyan awakened wind spiritual power, and at the age of five, he integrated the Qian Family’s wind skill into his own technique and derived a new skill. At the age of ten, he killed a level four wind beast and took its energy nucleus, successfully allowing himself to advance to level nine Spiritual Master, becoming the most feared genius of his generation. He grew up fast, from Great Spiritualist to Spiritual Scholar to Spiritual King and then to Spiritual Monarch at the age of eighteen.
If you look around, there was no other person in the entire Seven Colored Continent this monstrous. Unfortunately, at the age of nineteen, he and that fourth sister of the Qian Family disappeared at the same time, the two people had became a scar that the Qian Family did not want to mention…
If not for the Qian Family’s deep heritage, the loss of two extremely talented children within a year would probably have been a disaster.
Dongfang Minghui’s shouted back as she smiled slightly towards Qian Zhuoxi, “Eldest Miss, please lead the way.”
