Qian Wanyu’s words meant that she wants to get a place in the back of the mountain as a non-Qian family member.
This kind of arrogance made the old lady feel surprised.
“I can give you three months of preparation time.”
“Two months will do.”
Since that day after discussing with the old madam, she dispatched Cai Qing to personally pick up Situ Hao and the rest from the Inn.
“We’ve arranged a place for the friends of Third Miss to stay.”
Bai Rou, Situ Hao and the others were confused by the old lady’s words, what Third Miss? They looked at each other.
Qian Wanyu had however, stepped forward and said, “Thank you for the old madam’s arrangement, but I don’t think it’s necessary, in these two months, I will cultivate with them and enter the examination together, this place is fine so I won’t bother the old madam.”
Mu Sheng stared at Wanyu curiously wondering what their relationship was. The old madam and Wanyu they both gazed at each other before the old madam assented.
The old lady gave her a deep look and left after allowing Cai Qing to take care of things in a huff. Qian Wanyu did not want to speculate on the other party’s thoughts, for her, the whereabouts of Qian Yiling was still unknown and she’d lost the trace of even that Aunt Mo who found her before. The Qian Family’s training opportunities she of course had to take advantage of, as for who liked or disliked her what does it have to do with her?
Cai Qing also took the initiative to retreat.
“Little Minghui, what’s happened?” Situ Hao didn’t know about the details. When the Qian Family came to pick them up they were almost scared out of their wits. It seemed to them that they were trying to kidnap them, fortunately the girl who took the lead was quite reasonable.
Dongfang Minghui opened her mouth to explain, she really did not know how to explain but she really wanted to spit at this constant plot change of events. The original plot had Seventh sister storming the Qian family but the actual result ended up being the brother in law storming the family first!
Lu Xing didn’t even have time to ask anything, as soon as he arrived, he felt Wanyu’s gaze shift to him as he slowed down and approached hesitating to take the initiative to ask for forgiveness.
“Wanyu, Qian Wanyu, you are both form the Qian Family?” Situ Hao was still concerned about the words of the old lady’s mouth just now, the third young lady she mentioned he had a bold guess…
“Could it be that the two of them came were just pretending to be the Qian Family people and the old lady trapped them here on purpose and mistakenly recognized your identity?”
If that was the case, there would be no coincidence.
“What is this training?” Bai Ruo’s only concern was this.
“Is Sister Wanyu planning to put us through her demonic training?” Mu Sheng still remembered what she had said before, he felt more power in his whole body and wanted to fight to try out his strength as well.
Qian Wanyu saw that they had a lot of questions that they wanted to ask. The actual fact is that they were all too hard to answer in a few sentences so she had to answer patiently one by one. As for her identity, she learned from the mouth of Aunt Mo, in addition to her surname, and her powerful mother, the incident regarding that year’s Spiritual Saint tomb exploration she happened to also know a few of the details. As for specifics, Qian Yiling had likely not told anyone.
In the past, this surname was as insignificant as the Dongfang family’s to her. She did not know the Qian Family, and the Qian Family did not know her.
This time, if it wasn’t for Ninth Sister, she wouldn’t have bothered to reach out to them at all as can be seen by her attitude towards the old lady.
“Seventh sister, I support you.” Dongfang Minghui had blind confidence in her, no matter how hard the test for the Qian Family was, Seventh sister could definitely pass it.
Qian Wanyu nodded, “Except for Senior Brother Li, our whole team is good to go, since it’s a fight for qualification, I hope we can all go all out to fight. When we get the qualification we can go to the back mountain of Qian Family mountain together.”
Qian Family training sessions always included some children not from the Qian Family so it naturally meant others could join.
Situ Hao’s eyes couldn’t help but glow, the Qian Family’s training place, the outside world had a lot of speculation about this, but because the people who entered the place have to abide by the Qian Family rules and not spread the content of the training outside, many people had no real idea of what it entailed. Many people passed on all sorts of rumors, even his grandfather often kept saying that if he had the opportunity he had to go at least once, he said it all the time while he was training until his ears collapsed but didn’t manage to get a spot for the Situ Family.
“Right. It’s not up to me to decide whether you can qualify to enter the mountain for training, it’s up to your own skill.”
Dongfang Minghui looked at everyone’s eagerness to try, and the battle spirit in her heart grew a little more, she glanced at Lu Xing who was standing next to Wood, the two were like two dead people who wouldn’t move staring at each other.
She quietly walked over and gave Lu Xing a light push from behind.
Lu Xing was thinking carefully about how to face Wood but suddenly his body involuntarily leaned forward, Wood naturally stretched out his arms and caught him in a full embrace.
“Hee hee, Lu Xing ah.”
Dongfang Minghui seeing these two people who both don’t speak yet still understand each other was quite anxious to try mend their relationship, “Aiya, big uncle Wood I’ll borrow Lu Xing from you.”
She pulled Lu Xing’s hand, but the result was she did not manage to pull anything. She looked back, Wood’s arms tightly shielded Lu Xing, the eyes of his were like a predator as if he’d dash in and bite at the next second.
“Aiya what the fuck!” She immediately let go, this damn Uncle Wood indeed had the aggressiveness of a beast, as for possessiveness, she had never seen it in an undead, could it be that Lu Xing is really Wood’s emotional anchor?
As soon as she made a scene on her side, Qian Wanyu’s attention was drawn to that sound she just made.
“Wanyu, if he is really Qian Ziyan, wouldn’t he be your uncle?” Everyone completely ignored the scene where Wood was protecting Lu Xing tightly in his arms, they showed a strong interest in Wood’s other identity being Qian Ziyan.
“Stay away from him, don’t get yourself hurt again when the time comes.” Qian Wanyu did not forget the fighting power of Wood when he was controlled, even she could not defend herself from him let alone Ninth Sister. She pulled Dongfang Minghui over to her side, “Since the old lady has admitted his identity, he is most likely the one that the outside world is buzzing about. ”
Qian Wanyu’s attitude towards Wood was the same as to the Old Madam before, cold and uncaring.
“But I have something to say to Lu Xing.”
“Let go Wood!” Lu Xing heard that Minghui had something to say to himself and was in an awkward position of being held down. He found that the other party’s chest was as hard as a brick wall, the more he pushed the more anxious he became and threatened in a low voice, “Wood, if you don’t let go of me, I’ll ignore you from now on…”
“Hey, you see Wood seems to listen more to Lu Xing than me! Why do you think an undead will be so choosy?” Situ Hao was a bit puzzled, at first he only thought this person was just strange and quirky but after the reveal of him being undead it seemed weird compared to the undead he knew about.
In Return Town, they did not expect the other side would temporarily help an outsider.
Situ Hao rubbed his chin and suddenly said something that scared everyone, “Could he not be undead?”
The process of undead evolving from a normal person to undead, he had discussed with Minghui, basically to the point of becoming undead, their senses to the outside world and all perception, including intelligence were limited.
If so, how could this one recognize people and go back to the Qian Family?
Dongfang Minghui was also very curious, she has long wanted to experiment on Wood, but the other party was not cooperative, “He carries a little corrosive aura, but overall he’s much better than the ordinary undead.”
“Perhaps because he is a Spiritual Emperor, the level of his spiritual power is higher than that group, will that itself inhibit part of the poison of the undead?” Qian Wanyu always believed that since the other party was so clever as to lure them all to the Qian Family, he must be partly sane.
The crowd felt that all of these scenarios were possible.
“In that case, let me test if he is undead.” Situ Hao took a step back and moved away from them.
“How do you want to try?”
As soon as Dongfang Minghui’s words fell, she saw a blinding light emanating from behind Situ Hao, the dazzling light covered the entire small courtyard.
This is the Eye of Light, an especially effective skill against the Dark Spiritual Masters and the undead.
Remembering Seventh sister’s dark spiritual power, Dongfang Minghui subconsciously hugged the person beside her tightly, trying to use her entire body to shield her from the light, “Seventh sister?”
Along with a miserable scream, the light in the small courtyard suddenly disappeared.
Situ Hao had been slammed to the other side of the wall and he miserably stood up, “You people just stand aside to watch the show, doesn’t anyone know to stop him ugh.”
It turned out that the light was too dazzling so everyone just blinked their eyes for a while, and Wood suddenly kicked the man away without mercy.
Dongfang Minghui laughed, “Situ Hao, now there is no need to try, Wood has been kind of merciful to you, otherwise you’d probably be on the other side of the wall now.”
Situ Hao climbed up and patted some dirt stained on his body, he huffed, “Little Minghui, you’re so heartless. Who am I doing this for? It’s all for you guys. What if one day he is controlled by someone again?”
When he said this, everyone was shocked, especially Lu Xing, who had his head hung low so no one could see his expression clearly.
“Uh – actually he won’t be controlled by Xian for now…” Dongfang Minghui saw the atmosphere had turned odd, she secretly spit out her tongue, she was so excited to meet with Seventh sister that she forgot to tell them about Wood’s situation, “Before, this Uncle Wood took me captive, he walked some distance and left Xian at a certain place, then ran away with just me. ”
She still remembered the way Xian shouted with anger, in fact sometimes Wood also had the ability to drive people mad.
“What happened after that?” Qian Wanyu’s expression looked slightly better after hearing that.
“Later, when Xian tracked us, I found a way to block Uncle Wood’s hearing from the outside world, now Wood can’t listen to her summons, and a few times after that Wood was normal even after hearing it.” Although…the black pupils of his did always have a little reddish blood like tinge, even she sometimes stared for a long time wondering and worried if he would go crazy again.
Everyone breathed a sigh of relief.
“But-” Dongfang Minghui observed their expressions and swallowed, “But the old lady knows that Wood is undead.”
She did not trust Qian Zihang and the others, she was afraid they would take the opportunity to do something so she had no choice but to pick a Qian Family that would be the most harmless to Wood to confess to and suppress the situation.
“Well? There are still things you hid from us?” Qian Wanyu hooked up the corners of her mouth, smiling at her.
Dongfang Minghui felt a chill, she always felt as if Seventh sister knew something, she said noisily, “There should be nothing more!”
“The outside world’s rumor is that Qian Ziyan not only returned strongly, but also brought back a wife, what is that about?” Qian Wanyu reminded her.
“Ahem- cough -ach-ack”
She choked on her own saliva, she waved her hand, “Temporary temporary, Seventh sister believe me, I definitely did not want to take advantage of uncle.”
Yes, she just wanted to avoid unnecessary trouble, to wander around the Qian Family’s people, if her identity was a little lower, she didn’t know what would happen, “It’s not like you don’t know Wood can’t talk, the Qian Family’s people saw how he reacts differently with me so I had to improvise…”
“Ninth Sister had worked hard.” Qian Wanyu symbolically patted her shoulder.
Being pat by Seventh sister, Dongfang Minghui almost kneeled down, she swallowed her saliva, her eyes swept around, “By the way, where is Brother Li? How come I don’t see him?”
“I followed the Li family in, they either returned to the Li family or are still in the main hall.” Qian Wanyu frowned, the old lady sent all her friends here, wonder if she made anything difficult for the Li family.
“Actually, there is one more thing that I need everyone’s help for.” Dongfang Minghui did not dare to continue the topic lest Seventh sister suspected something, “In fact, the outside world has a prescription, specializing in the treatment of sound on people, if you can get this prescription, you can completely make Wood free from the control of Xian. ”
This matter, she has mentioned with the old lady, the Qian Family people were also searching everywhere for this but the night is long, she needed to find that remedy as soon as possible so that Wood could get rid of the control of that group of people.
“Minghui, can you describe it?” Lu Xing couldn’t help but get on board when it came to Wood.
“I can be sure that it exists but…” Love flower did not remember the name of the prescription, only the effect so they had to search extensively.
Qian Wanyu nodded, “Don’t worry, I’ll have someone look for it.”
She’d have to use the Rose House information network to search out the prescription, if it is in the Yuntian Pavilion that’d be best although Nangong Yuntian was a little annoying.
Looking at the girls discussing their cultivation plans, Dongfang Minghui pulled Lu Xing aside, “Lu Xing, there is a very important matter that needs your help.”
“What do you need me to do?” Lu Xing asked with a smile.
She extended two fingers and waved them in front of him, “There are two things, one is about wood.”
As soon as Wood was mentioned, Lu Xing’s expression became grave, “What’s wrong with Wood? Is it not a good situation?” He even felt that the good news Minghui had just said was all to appease the rest of the group.
“Actually, it’s like this.” Dongfang Minghui had some difficulty saying, after all, she needed to take a piece of his body to study the makeup of the undead, Wood may be like this for the rest of his life if she can’t find a cure. She clenched her teeth, her heart steeled up, “Lu Xing, it is like this, you should understand, in order to refine a potion to inhibit the poison of the undead, a little sacrifice is needed right?”
Lu Xing nodded dumbfoundedly and looked at her with an innocent face.
“In that case, I’d like you to help me collect a little sample from Wood.” Dongfang Minghui held out two fingers, her eyes slightly narrowed suggestively.
Dongfang Minghui looked at him who still had a bewildered look and said angrily, “I mean I need you to cut a small piece of his flesh for me.”
Lu Xing jerked backwards two steps, drew two breaths, and his face turned white all of a sudden, not knowing if it was from heartache or from being scared by her words.
She looked at him like this and thought this was probably going to be annoying. She pulled her hair down and thought for a moment that if someone were to ask her to cut a piece of Seventh sister’s flesh with her own hands, she would probably rush up and fight with them.
What to do?
Lu Xing was at a bit of a loss, and looking at her dilemma, he apprehensively asked, “Is the sample really that important?”
Dongfang Minghui nodded dejectedly, she wanted to do it herself, but Wood ignored her completely, she didn’t dare to pluck the hair from the tiger’s head. If it was Lu Xing maybe the other party would agree…
“With the sample, I can refine a potion and test it on the sample to see the best reaction.” Doing experiments always needed to be repeated several times, recording data until the efficacy was completely refined.
It was really Wood’s fault for not being able to speak so even if she used it on him directly he couldn’t respond.
“What did you just say?”
She thought she was probably hearing things.
Lu Xing nodded in agreement, he knew nothing about potions, and he couldn’t help much with Wood’s condition. Seeing Minghui hurt her head about Wood and looking around for that remedy, he felt he was really useless, and this was probably all he could do.
“Give me a dagger, I’ll go get the sample for you.” Lu Xing held out his hand with a determined look.
Dongfang Minghui was startled, she looked for it from within her space ring and took out a small fingertip knife, “It seems like this is all that’s left, use it carefully?”
Lu Xing pinched the blade and walked firmly towards Wood.
Wood saw him and his feet turned slightly looking at him head-on as he came over.
Dongfang Minghui covered her face, she was afraid that Wood would be angry with Lu Xing, or like last time directly kick him away. When she thought of this, she immediately shouted, “Lu Xing, or maybe don’t-”
Lu Xing listened but did not hear, he walked to the side of Wood, reached out with one hand to grab his arm and with his other hand squeezed the blade gently into his arm.
Dongfang Minghui covered her mouth as she watched the scene with wide eyes.
Wood was probably unprepared for Lu Xing’s sudden action, from the moment the blade crossed his skin, he did not even blink, but there was a look in his eyes that she could not understand, then she saw Wood reach out and pull Lu Xing back into his arms.
“I’m sorry.” Lu Xing’s hand trembled a bit as he held the piece of flesh samples Minghui needed, his mood was pretty depressed, his fingertips slightly gripped the knife so hard that his fingers accidentally got cut by the blade, drops of blood flowed out from his fingers mixing with it.
“Lu Xing, your blood is flowing onto the sample!” She really didn’t want to make a sound to disturb them, but the sample was stained with his blood and could probably change the results, wouldn’t Lu Xing’s big action just now be wasted?!
Lu Xing came to his senses and pushed Wood away, annoyed at his carelessness.
“Minghui, what to do, is it still useful?”
Dongfang Minghui cocked her head and looked at the sample in Lu Xing’s hand, Lu Xing’s blood hadn’t stained it too much, after it penetrated inside, it was actually absorbed directly by the sample!
She then looked at the previous wound on Wood’s arm, the wound was smooth, it could be seen that Lu Xing’s knife incision was fast and clean. The strange thing was that the other side’s wound did not have a trace of blood flowing out at all.
The undead have no vitality, does that mean they don’t even have blood?
Dongfang Minghui took the sample in Lu Xing’s hand and walked back into the room in a daze, even when Seventh sister called out to her she did not respond.
“What’s wrong with Minghui?”
“She should be troubled by something.” Lu Xing was not sure but he looked at the wound on Wood’s wrist with some guilt.
Thanks for waiting and reading another chapter! I hope you’ve all enjoyed this one. Can’t wait for the new arc with Wanyu and Minghui back together!
