“Is there nothing else?”
Murong Qingyi’s eyes drifted down and immediately shook her head.
Qian Wanyu thought for a moment and motioned to Li Jing, “Li Jing, let her go.”
Li Jing nodded and lifted Murong Qingyi from the ground just like that, then sent her out of the stone door, with a warning, “It is our young master who gave you a chance if you have the ability to escape from here safely, count yourself lucky.”
If you can’t escape, then you can’t blame them for not keeping their word…
Murong Qingyi touched her face, the wound that had been inflicted before could not be healed immediately and she guessed that she might even have been permanently scarred. She couldn’t even hear Li Jing’s words clearly.
Murong Qingyi took out her long whip and ran along the road Qian Wanyu had come from, but her body was wounded and the pain from her abdomen was unbearable, so she fell to the ground halfway along the road.
There were unsteady footsteps approaching behind her, it was the same people who were standing outside the stone gate before.
Murong Qingyi tried her best to move forward, one step at a time.
Suddenly, the light in front of her dimmed, and she noticed that someone was walking towards her step by step.
Qian Wanyu didn’t have to wait too long before Li Jing pushed open the stone door, and a man carrying a dying Murong Qingyi walked in from behind her.
“Young Master, if you let her go, it will reveal information about the Rose House, so you can’t keep her.” The man casually threw Murong Qingyi on the ground.
Murong Qingyi still had some consciousness, and only after hearing their conversation did she realize that she was stupid enough to believe Qian Wanyu would let her go.
She tried to get up.
Qian Wanyu gave her a faint glance, “Yes, she already knows the secrets of this place, and we can’t just let her go.”
Not to mention divulging the information about the Rose House, even her identity couldn’t be divulged from her mouth.
This sentence was equivalent to a death sentence for Murong Qingyi.
“Just now, right here, you lied to me, and this is the price you pay for your lies.”
Qian Wanyu stretched out her beautiful palm, touched her forehead, and very gently said, “Now, tell me everything you know.”
Murong Qingyi didn’t expect that Qian Wanyu would ask Qing Mo for a way to search her memories the moment she left.
Although it was insidious, it was quite useful, especially in dealing with those who were full of nonsense but refused to tell their secrets.
Qian Wanyu closed her eyes and saw clearly the series of events that had taken place since Murong Qingyi entered the Royal Academy, including the image of her and Ninth Sister colliding with each other and her pulling out a whip.
After the memory search was over, Qian Wanyu needed to sit quietly for a moment to digest the memories she had just read from the other woman’s mind.
It turned out that except for the third time when Murong Qingyi couldn’t wait to kill Ninth Sister, the other two times were actually done by someone else, it was no wonder that she felt that the other party was hiding something.
She quickly remembered the person in Murong Qingyi’s mind who was wearing a black robe, she grabbed the other party by the neck, “Spit it out, who’s that person?”.
Murong Qingyi looked at her with a bloody mouth and a sarcastic smile, “Want to know? Beg me and maybe I’ll tell you as soon as I’m happy.”
Qian Wanyu sneered, her hands tightened and clasped her neck, ready to search her memories for the second time but was stopped by Qing Mo.
“Wanyu, calm down, it’s useless, searching for memories is related to your own spiritual power, those with weak spiritual power can only search for memories of a recent period of time, if you want to search for more memories from her, you must improve yourself as soon as possible.”
Qian Wanyu was reluctant, she couldn’t think of anyone else’s hand reaching out to Ninth Sister besides Murong Qingyi.
The person in the black robe, cape and black hat, who had used Murong Qingyi and Bai Lu, these two foolish women, and also in a few words invited the Blood Fiend Alliance’s assassin, was really something.
The first time, it was a naked warning, the second a declaration of war. Hmph!
If she hadn’t wanted to get to the bottom of this, it would have been easy to confuse even her from all the misdirection, a consequence she wouldn’t have dared to think about.
“No good, she’s going to self-destruct.”
Just as Qing Mo finished speaking, a bright light directly broke through the entire stone door, shaking the flat ground, not to mention the entire underground tunnel.
Qian Wanyu almost jumped towards the door at the same time, but the self-destruct of a Spiritual Master still gave her a certain impact, directly throwing her outside, and then the stone blocks above fell down, burying her completely.
“The movement just now was-”
The guards outside the passage looked at each other and said in unison, “It’s the fluctuations coming from the underground secret passage.”
“The Young Master is still inside.”
When the two of them went down together, they realized that the underground tunnel had turned into a pile of ruins, and that the stones were blocking the only entrance.
“Quick, tell the sisters upstairs to come down and help clear out all these stones.”
Li Jing immediately went to call the sisters upstairs, and a group of people came over to move the stones blocking the entrance out, when they were halfway there, they noticed that the stones not far away moved twice.
Everyone looked surprised, forgetting to move the rocks.
Qian Wanyu’s left hand was covered in blood, and she crawled out from underneath it, but her right hand was hanging by her side, looking badly injured.
Qian Wanyu stepped on the stone block and jumped in front of them, her body was covered with scars and her face looked very bad.
“Li Jing, clean this place up and see what else you can find.”
“Young Master, you’re injured, we’d better go up and heal you first.”
That was the first time she’d experienced the power of self-destructing, if it wasn’t for Qing Mo blocking that final strike just now, she might not have been able to live today.
“Qing Mo, are you okay?”
Although the other party was merely a wisp, he was important in her heart as a teacher and a friend.
“Wanyu, I may need to go into hibernation for some time. Murong Qingyi did not voluntarily self-destruct it must have been triggered by someone else…”
Qing Mo’s voice was silent after he finished speaking.
In the meantime, Qian Wanyu caressed her broken arm, and ordered, “If you find anything related to Murong Qingyi, bring it to me.”
She disappeared for two whole days, and Dongfang Minghui couldn’t guess where the Female Protagonist had gone.
On the other hand, the disappearance of one of the new students attracted attention from the royal family, and Nan Nan made some inquiries and gossiped, “Apparently it was a student from the Fire Hall. She disappeared for two days before her roommates discovered it.
Dongfang Minghui didn’t care at all. People who were arrogant and domineering easily offended, and they are indeed not well-liked by others, “Nan Nan why do I hear your tone of gloating? Did she get you in trouble before?”
Mu Sheng had never met anyone who was slower than he was. He laughed lowly and explained, “She’s the one who got you into trouble before. Sister Wanyu hadn’t returned for two days, and that person had also been missing for two days.”
If there was no relationship between them, Mu Sheng didn’t believe it.
“The one who harmed me?”
Dongfang Minghui looked surprised, she was going to work hard to cultivate her skills, then she was going to end this feud herself after a period of time, so as not to cause unnecessary trouble for the Female Protagonist.
“Are you talking about Murong Qingyi?”
Mu Sheng nodded, “Last time in our last match, Wanyu went to test her personally and basically confirmed that she was the one who hurt you.”
Hey, had Female Protagonist already confirmed this? How come she never told her about this matter?
Dongfang Minghui was a bit dumbfounded. Last time when she said she was suspicious of the other party, she thought that Seventh sister did not care at all.
“So, what’s Murong Qingyi’s whereabouts?” Dongfang Minghui asked nervously.
Nan Nan shook her head and smiled, “Ever since we came to the White Moon Empire, first you and then Murong Qingyi went missing one after another, the lead teacher’s furious, blaming the White Moon Empire for not doing enough to protect the students. They have now gone to investigate, and seem to have found that the other party went to a teahouse, after which the clues were broken.”
Dongfang Minghui had no idea what to do. With the Female Protagonist’s methods, it probably wouldn’t take two days to clean up a person. Why didn’t she return after two days? Did she encounter something difficult? She was so absent-minded and distracted that she didn’t even listen to what Mu Sheng and Lu Xing said afterwards.
“Minghui, are you too tired from your recent cultivation? I see you don’t look too good, why don’t you go to your room and rest for a while.”
In these past few days, the three of them would always accompany her, while Dongfang Minghui cultivated her skills, they would each do their own thing in the small courtyard, basically making sure to accompany her every step of the way.
Since it was hard to find an excuse to get away, Dongfang Minghui nodded her head.
“Love Flower, do you think Seventh sister will be okay?”
Love Flower was educating Lucky, and when it heard Dongfang Minghui’s question, it crawled out of the space and rubbed her with its flower.
“She’s much stronger than you, she should be fine.”
Satisfied with Love Flower’s confirmation she perked up and proceeded to pick up the materials she had purchased earlier to make a teething rod for Toothless in the room.
Love Flower also went back in the space ring to continue its education of Lucky.
When Qian Wanyu returned, it was already dark, and the three people were ready to leave.
Lu Xing was the first to notice that something was wrong. He looked Qian Wanyu up and down and asked, “Wanyu, did you make a breakthrough?
Lu Xing was an Elf, his senses were far stronger than that of ordinary people.
When he mentioned this, Mu Sheng immediately circled around Qian Wanyu, smiling and congratulating her, “So Sister Wanyu has gone to the next level, no wonder we couldn’t find you.
This was good because it was also a good alibi for what had happened before, no one would have associated the disappearance of Murong Qingyi with Wanyu’s disappearance these two days.
Since it was obvious to everyone, Qian Wanyu nodded her head and admitted, “Indeed, this tournament gave me great inspiration, so I found a quiet place to practice, and I was lucky enough to break through to Great Spiritualist.
Qian Wanyu kept her hands behind her back, and her facial expression remained indifferent. Lu Xing and the rest did not notice anything wrong at all, so they congratulated her and went back to their own houses.
Nan Nan was the last to leave. She whispered in Qian Wanyu’s ear, “You haven’t been home for two days, Minghui is very worried about you.
Dongfang Minghui had already heard the voices outside, she opened the door and said with a smile, “Seventh sister, you’re finally back.”
Breakthrough to Great Spiritualist?
Dongfang Minghui’s eyeballs rolled slightly. Didn’t the Female Protagonist breakthrough during her spiritual empowerment? How could it be earlier?
“Ninth Sister, have you been practising well these past two days?”
“Yes, I spend at least five hours a day practising skills.” Dongfang Minghui basically freed some time to sleep but after a few days of practice she found that it didn’t seem to matter if she didn’t sleep, the next day she had the same amount of energy as usual. When she discovered this benefit, she naturally intensified her practice, and night time became the best time for her to practice.
Qian Wanyu wanted to raise her hand, but found that her right hand was injured, so she simply overtook her and entered the room.
Dongfang Minghui immediately followed her in, cautiously probing, “Seventh sister, where have you been for the past two days?”
Qian Wanyu gave her a puzzled look, “Some time ago, I noticed my spiritual energy was unstable, and I found a place to retreat for two days.” She said frankly, seemingly not hiding anything.
Dongfang Minghui was a little disappointed, she thought to herself, Female Protagonist really was a cultivation maniac who never forgets to practice anywhere.
“Seventh sister, I don’t think your complexion is so good, so take a good rest in the room.”
Dongfang Minghui closed the door lost, thinking she took Mu Sheng and the others too seriously.
Even if Murong Qingyi had disappeared, it probably had nothing to do with the Female Protagonist.
She kicked the stone bench hard, but it was her own foot that hurt. Aiya!
“Forget it, keep practicing.”
Little Colour said before that she could only breakthrough if she has cultivated her first skill to the extreme.
Qian Wanyu stretched out her right arm and moved it a little, because of the sudden breakthrough in her spiritual energy, all the other injuries on her body were almost healed, except for this arm, it was still a little hard to move.
She guessed that it had something to do with her touching the hint of that black robed person in Murong Qingyi’s memories that caused her to self-destruct as well as force Qing Mo to go into hibernation. She was really unwilling to let it end like this…
In Murong Qingyi’s memory, that person wearing a black robe was the one who did the planning. It was clear that that person’s target was her and Ninth Sister, but somehow, it had suddenly shifted to just targeting Ninth Sister.
If this person wasn’t found, Ninth Sister would not be able to live in peace from now on.
Qian Wanyu sighed, she was the one who was weak at the end of the day, otherwise, she wouldn’t have given a hint to that person in Murong Qingyi’s mind when she searched the other person’s memories, and what happened next wouldn’t have happened.
It took awhile before Qian Wanyu managed to calm herself down.
She could clearly hear every breath of the person next door, as well as the number of flying needles the other person threw.
She took out three silver needles of different lengths from her space ring, these were all around the stone room, forced out of her body due to Murong Qingyi’s self-destruction.
After the secret passage was emptied at the bottom, nothing was found inside except these.
When Qian Wanyu opened her eyes again later, Dongfang Minghui was sitting on the chair opposite her, looking straight at her.
She smiled a little.
“Seventh sister, I forgot to tell you something.” The smile from the female protagonist momentarily stunned her, Dongfang Minghui immediately came back to her senses, wondering how she found the female protagonist seemed to look more and more beautiful, and she scratched her face a little embarrassed.
“The two days you were away, Xuan Zhu came to see you twice, it seemed like it was something particularly urgent, she wouldn’t say even if I asked her.”
As soon as Qian Wanyu heard this, she guessed that it must be the recipe of Mixed Heaven Pill, she immediately stood up, “Indeed, it is very important I should see her.”
Dongfang Minghui followed her out of the doorway, and just watched as the Female Protagonist quickly left, not even throwing her an unnecessary glance, she could feel the other party’s eagerness.
“What’s so urgent?”
She was alone and mumbling to herself, the script hadn’t written anything about the Female Protagonist having anything to do with Princess Xuan Zhu.
She scratched her head, thinking that she really couldn’t understand the whole situation.
To her surprise, the Female Protagonist went out for the whole day and only came back at night.
At that time, she was shooting flying needles, which formed a semi-circle and shot straight at the trees in the distance.
She had made a deal with the trees, exchanging five bottles of spiritual liquid for the damage she would do to them when she practised her skill.
Lately, however, probably because she had really accomplished something, the trees had been asking for more and more, or else they would not let her practice.
Dongfang Minghui had the feeling that she would soon breakthrough.
“Ninth Sister.” Qian Wanyu didn’t find Xuan Zhu in the royal family. She was a little worried about the change in situation from the incident before, so she stayed in the pavilion near where her medicinal plants garden was. Who knew that as soon as she practiced, a day passed.
“Seventh sister, it seems that you are going to the Phoenix Pond to receive spiritual empowerment tomorrow, right?”
So, it seems that she’s going to be left alone again.
Ever since Murong Qingyi blew herself up, Qian Wanyu was even more worried about the other party’s safety, especially when she wasn’t by her side.
“How about this, tomorrow I’ll have Xuan Zhu come over to accompany you, what do you think?”
Xuan Zhu again…
Dongfang Minghui curled her lips reluctantly. Why did she suddenly feel that Xuan Zhu and Seventh sister seemed to have some sort of secret, this sort of intimacy that others couldn’t break in to.
“What’s wrong? You don’t like Xuan Zhu accompanying you?” Qian Wanyu raised her eyebrows. The last time she saw Ninth Sister and Xuan Zhu seemed to get along fine.
She couldn’t help but reach out her left hand and lightly touch her head, “When I return, we can go back to the Royal Academy.”
Once back in the Snow Capital, with the Dean of the Pharmacy as her background, Qian Wanyu would feel a lot more at ease.
“All right, Seventh sister.”
Dongfang Minghui readily accepted the arrangement, knowing that it was for her own sake.
The next day, Dongfang Minghui saw the three victorious teams fly from the royal family towards the Phoenix Pond with flying beasts.
Liu Qi was beside her, “Minghui, are we going to take the awards back to the academy?”
The day after the competition, she left on her own. Liu Qi perfectly accepted the prizes on her behalf, including what the pharmacy judges called a great gift, an advanced medicinal plant.
“Liu Qi, when I go back, I will tell the dean about your contribution, and I believe he will give you an extra reward.
It was true that a high-grade medicinal plant did not interest her, but for pharmacists, it was a great gift that could not be found elsewhere.
Selfishly, she believed that Liu Qi and Bai Lu were not the same kinds of people. However, objectively, there were some things that should be made clear earlier to avoid unnecessary troubles.
Liu Qi smiled, “Minghui, after going back, I will personally report to the dean about everything that happened, including the danger you almost encountered because of me, I believe the dean will also make the right judgment.
Dongfang Minghui remembered the day when she was stunned by the beast rampaging before but this little girl in front of her stood in front of her despite being so scared.
Just as she was about to speak, she saw Princess Xuan Zhu running over from afar, jumping in spite of her image, and Liu Qi upon seeing this immediately took it as a cue to leave, “Minghui, it seems like your friend is here, I’m leaving first.”
Female Protagonist really dragged the other party to accompany her, really did what she said she would do… Dongfang Minghui grimaced.
“Hey, Qian Minghui, I came over to kindly play with you, why are you looking at this princess with this expression?” Xuan Zhu’s eyes glazed over, expressing great displeasure.
“How dare I?” Dongfang Minghui turned around and walked away.
Xuan Zhu didn’t believe it and chased her, and slapped her back fiercely, “Hey, you and your Seventh sister are too unjust. Last time you picked a medicinal plant from our royal family. For this reason, I was also scolded by my father. You know, he’s never been willing to scold me since I grew up. He actually made a big deal of it at that time, and he was angry with me for several days.”
Listening to Xuan Zhu’s complaint, Dongfang Minghui did feel a little guilty. Maybe there was something special about Lucky.
However, according to her observations over the past few days, Lucky still seemed like a dead person, sick and half dead.
This trick of pretending to be dead was really amazing.
“Princess Xuan Zhu, the bet was proposed by you, you don’t think-” Dongfang Minghui squinted with a disdainful expression.
If the other party dared to nod her head, she was going to spray her to death with words.
“How can that be, this princess has a mouth of gold. There’s no reason to take back what I have said, but my father wants to see you.”
The last sentence, Xuan Zhu’s voice was so small that even ants couldn’t hear it clearly.
Dongfang Minghui pretended not to have heard it and did not change her face but she communicated with her mind to Love Flower in her space ring, “Love Flower, you didn’t pick up the Royal Family’s treasured plant did you?”
“Lucky is not it.”
Listening to Love Flower’s words, Dongfang Minghui sighed in relief, but then was a bit disappointed.
What about the promised good vision from having lots of experience, the promised partner and friend?!
Instead of that you picked up a random plant that only knows how to play dead ?!?!
“Ah, Princess Xuan Zhu, what did you say just now, I don’t think I heard you clearly.” Dongfang Minghui played dumb and blinked her eyes cutely.
“Come on, let’s continue to play throwing stones.”
The broad-minded Xuan Zhu dragged Dongfang Minghui back to the small courtyard and drew another line one meter in front of the previous position.
“Minghui, although I lost the last game, this princess is not convinced, so today this game we’ll increase the difficulty, if you can still hit the stones on the line, I will give you a big gift.”
Dongfang Minghui rolled her eyes. She didn’t care about any big gift, as long as the other party didn’t try to take money from her.
“Well, what do you want to bet on this time?”
She was used to Princess Xuan Zhu’s routine of throwing stones, winning, and then getting a big prize.
Dongfang Minghui felt that Princess Xuan Zhu was probably a fool to gamble on something so simple, and she felt guilty.
“I’ll throw first this time, and if you can hit my stone out and still get it on the line, I’ll offer a big gift, no need for you to put up anything.” Xuan Zhu said boldly.
Dongfang Minghui had planned that no matter if she won or lost she wouldn’t take her gift, she’d just consider it as playing and having fun.
The distance was almost three meters.
It was good that she had been diligent in her cultivation for some time, otherwise, she would have been unsure.
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t help but give a thumbs-up as Xuan Zhu quickly threw ten stones, each of which was almost exactly on the line.
She weighed the weight of the stones, and each of the ten stones was different, she made a rough estimate and threw the stones lightly, each one hitting the stones that Xuan Zhu threw.
Dongfang Minghui’s stones wobbled but fell back to the line.
She clapped her hands and turned back with a wry smile on her face to find Xuan Zhu staring at her.
Xuan Zhu’s eyes were so wide that they looked like they were about to pop out.
“Minghui, I’m going to give you a super gift.”
Dongfang Minghui immediately waved her hand, “Forget it, it’s embarrassing to ask you to give me a gift every time, I won’t do it this time.”
“No, you definitely need to accept this gift!”
Xuan Zhu grabbed her shoulders with a serious look on her face, “I’m telling you, you have to have this gift.”
“I have to?” Dongfang Minghui laughed bitterly, why did she feel that the other party was a bit nervous and her mood seemed weird.
As a result, Dongfang Minghui was dragged out by Xuan Zhu, and they appeared on the street of Yundu City.
“Xuan Zhu, what are you trying to do making me wear this outfit?”
She pulled on her men’s clothing, it was a little uncomfortable, if the people of Qing Lan Sect saw her in Yundu City, she would be finished.
“Ugh, be natural, or you’ll be recognized” Xuan Zhu said with a calm face, winking at her.
Dongfang Minghui was speechless, could she act natural in this? She had at least worn men’s clothing before but the one she was wearing right now was too showy…
“Are you taking me somewhere?”
The matter of Murong Qingyi was still unresolved, although the other party was now missing, they could accidentally meet again.
With her three-legged kung fu, and this princess who was even more useless could they escape?
“Don’t worry, since I promised your Seventh sister to take care of you, I’ll keep my word.” Xuan Zhu patted her chest and promised.
Dongfang Minghui was sceptical. When the time came, she didn’t know who would protect who if anything happened.
After eight turns and three more blocks, Dongfang Minghui was already fully confused as to where they were going as Xuan Zhu led her into a dark alley.
“Hey, I think you’d better keep that big gift for yourself.”
What if Xuan Zhu sold her out? She didn’t know yet, but Dongfang Minghui looked at the alley and began to think about retreating.
She stepped backwards.
“Hey, why are you running, worried that I’ll eat you?” Xuanzhu’s sharp eyes caught her.
Dongfang Minghui was grabbed by the collar, and with a slight spin, she broke free of Xuan Zhu’s restraint.
“Yo, I underestimated you.” Xuan Zhu’s hands were empty, and when she flinched, she saw that the other party was looking at her with a guarded face.
She had thought that the other party was a freshman pharmacist, unarmed, caught once and almost harmed once, such a person must be weak in spirit.
But to her surprise, the other party was nimble and quite smart.
“If you don’t tell the truth, I’ll never go with you again.” Having experienced several incidents, Dongfang Minghui was already on guard. Regardless of whether Xuanzhu was trustworthy or not, the fact that she had brought herself here seemed very strange.
They had only met a few times at most and had gambled twice, so they were not the best of friends, it was only a matter of time before someone like this could sell you out.
Xuan Zhu’s mouth hung open, she truly didn’t think of harming Minghui, but the other person was so on guard. Then again, when she thought of the other party going through so many bad things, she could also understand, once bitten twice shy.
“If I was going to hurt you, I could have done it when we were in the Royal grounds before, why would I wait till here and now?”
Dongfang Minghui directly touched her jade belt.
As soon as Xuan Zhu saw her move, she immediately shouted, “Stop, I know what you’re doing, don’t move or I can’t guarantee about what’ll happen later.”
Xuan Zhu stared straight at Dongfang Minghui’s hand, fearing that the other party would suddenly fire a secret weapon at her.
She knew too well the function of Entangled Love, which was hidden with the jade belt.
“In that case, what do you honestly want to do by bringing me here?” Dongfang Minghui was really planning to give her a couple of stitches if it was anything bad.
Xuan Zhu walked back and forth with difficulty, her eyes still glued to Dongfang Minghui’s hand, and she bit her fingers, “Actually-”
“If you’re here why don’t you come in?”
A loud voice came out from the house in the dark alley, deafening and directly penetrating their eardrums.
Dongfang Minghui stepped forward and pointed a silver needle directly at Xuan Zhu’s throat, as long as she gently bent her fingers, Xuanzhu would have one of these silver needles in her throat.
Xuan Zhu immediately raised her hand, swallowed, and whispered, “Qian Minghui, I treated you with kindness, why are you still treating me like this.”
If she wasn’t wrong, the person inside was at least above Spiritual King!
“Tell me how do I leave?”
“That man inside is my master, think about it, what do I, a princess, want with you?”
Dongfang Minghui thought about it carefully, it seems to be true, the other party bet a medicinal plant and ended up giving away the plant for free to her.
“What is the purpose of you bringing me here?”
At this point, Xuan Zhu had no choice but to tell the truth, “You meet all the conditions.”
Dongfang Minghui was dumbfounded, and with that distraction, Xuan Zhu took the opportunity to spit out a stream of grey smoke toward her.
Xuan Zhu caught Dongfang Minghui, who was about to faint, and took a deep breath, “It’s better to fall asleep.”
She only knew that Qian Wanyu was a very difficult person to deal with, but she didn’t know that Qian Minghui was also a very difficult one to deal with…
These two sisters were really similar, neither was easy to fool.
“Little brothers and sisters, come help.”
Xuan Zhu tried to pick the person up but found the sad fact that she couldn’t.
Soon a group of children rushed out through that door and carried the person to the house.
A man sat on a chair in the room, wearing a blue gown, with nothing under his legs, and he looked at Xuanzhu with a smiling face.
“Who is she?”
Xuan Zhu, with a smiling face, leaned over and said, “Master, I’m telling you, this person is the kind of gifted person you’ve been looking for.”
The man called Master immediately sat up straight and asked seriously, “Seriously?”
I have tested her twice, and her eyes and hands are very flexible and precise.” Xuan Zhu told the man her observations, “If you don’t believe me, wait until she wakes up.”
When Dongfang Minghui came to she felt something was wrong and rubbed her head.
“The other party is a Dark Spiritual Master, what you were sprayed with before was just a little mist. It won’t hurt the human body to absorb it.”
As soon as she woke up, Love Flower spilled the beans on what that man and Xuan Zhu had just been plotting.
“Hey, do they all think I’m stupid?”
Dongfang Minghui was amazed. Did she really seem so stupid…?
“Hey, are you awake? My master says he wants to see you.” A little boy shorter than her said arrogantly to her.
Dongfang Minghui simply ignored it, she would not bother with a child.
She followed the other party, through the hall, and walked to a small room, “This is my master’s room, you can go in.”
Knowing the other’s scheme, Dongfang Minghui was not afraid. She pushed open the door of the room with extreme frankness.
The room was a mess, and there was a strong smell that almost killed her.
It was the stinkiest room she had ever been in.
Inside the room, Xuan Zhu was kneeling on the floor with her head hanging low, expresionless. In front of Xuan Zhu, there was a man sitting there quietly.
“What exactly do you want to do by bringing me here?”
Dongfang Minghui made a pre-emptive strike but actually came to watch the show. Just now, Love Flower had told her everything that the two had discussed.
The man struck Xuan Zhu with his cane, “How should you be punished for bringing an outsider here and revealing my secret?”
Xuanzhu immediately fell down in front of the other party and cried, “Master, have mercy, I just wanted to relieve your worries, I didn’t mean to bring outsiders in.”
Dongfang Minghui stood aside and watched Xuan Zhu and her master act, with a slightly torn expression on her face.
The main thing is that the other person’s acting was so bad, this sort of fake crying with no tears, did they really think they could fool her…?
“Ever heard the saying a beating is a kiss, and scolding is love? It should be more like this.” Dongfang Minghui went straight over and snatched up the cane.
Just a second later, she realized something was wrong.
The cane was too damn heavy.
“Never mind, I’ll show you with this.” Dongfang Minghui threw the cane back, hurried outside, talked to a tree, and broke one of its thin branches.
“Xuan Zhu, I’ll teach you, about how a real beating is a kiss, and scolding is love.”
Dongfang Minghui said, and then she smacked Xuan Zhu several times with the thin twig which was very painful.
“Ahhh, you’re seriously whipping me!?” Xuan Zhu was directly hit and jumped up, thinking that she was a princess and had never been treated like this before.
“Yeah, could it be that you guys were just acting?”
Dongfang Minghui gritted her teeth and ran after her, whipping as she ran, “Xuan Zhu, don’t run, this is real love, okay?”
“Ah, don’t fight, don’t fight, I was wrong ok?” Xuan Zhu was in tears, she felt so painful at the area where she had just been smacked, it should be red and swollen now…
“Good to know.”
Dongfang Minghui threw the thin branch behind and said with a cold face, “In that case, send me away.”
Xuan Zhu bit her lip, “Qian Minghui, my master is the most powerful thief in the Seven Colored Continent. If you become his disciple, wouldn’t anything you want in the future be easily stolen?”
Strange, how did that feel a little familiar.
“Tsk, so you’re a thief.” Dongfang Minghui only discovered Xuan Zhu’s real identity at this moment.
“Yes, I am.” Hyun-joo admitted generously, “Your Seventh sister already knows by the way.”
Dongfang Minghui: “……”
What’s the point of mentioning her Seventh sister…?
“I’m not interested in acknowledging any master or anything, we’re not from the White Moon Empire, we should be leaving when Seventh sister returns.”
She even felt that the White Moon Empire was simply a place of calamity for her constantly being kidnapped, almost getting crushed and drowning…
“I see that you are an extremely dexterous young lady, and you are very precise in your movements of smacking people with a branch, why don’t we have a contest.” The man himself came out pushing his wheelchair and looked at her calmly.
When the wheelchair came down, the wind gently lifted a corner of the blanket on the other’s leg, and Dongfang Minghui realized that the strange thief was actually a man who had lost both legs.
No wonder the other party had to use crutches, it seems that it couldn’t be helped.
