Xiao Linfeng looked at Qing Zhu with a more gentle gaze and held up his finger. "I swear to never deceive men."
Qing Zhus expression didnt change, "But Im not human."
Xiao Linfeng, ""
Why is this Little Zhuzi so cute?
Xiao Linfeng couldnt help but laugh, "I swear to never deceive the spirits of plants and trees, especially Inquiring Immortal spiritual grass."
Qing Zhu hummed, looking somewhat satisfied.
He thought for a moment and said, "Do you want to make it up for me?"
Xiao Linfeng nodded, "Id love to."
Qing Zhu pointed to a stall selling roasted chicken legs in front of him and ordered, "I want to eat that. You buy it for me."
Xiao Linfeng laughed, "Buy the biggest and most fragrant, right?"
Qing Zhu nodded, "Yes, the outside skin should be scorched."
Lin Xuanzhi and Yan Tianhen were afraid of Qing Zhu being bullied, so when they arrived quickly, they found Qing Zhu and Xiao Linfeng together. They were sitting on the stone steps by the roadside without scruple. One was holding a roasted chicken leg in hand and eating happily, which seemed to hold a bit of ice-breaker meaning.
Lin Xuanzhi, "."
Yan Tianhen, ""
What was this situation?
Yan Tianhen swallowed his saliva, "Dage, I also want to eat roasted chicken legs."
Lin Xuanzhi replied, " buy whatever you want."
As a result, from two people eating roasted chicken legs, it became four people eating together.
While nibbling on his food, Lin Xuanzhi had a kind of trance-like feeling he finally understood why his father had been able to abduct Qing Zhu with a roasted chicken leg. If he had known that it would be so easy to abduct Qing Zhu, would Liu Mengchen regret that he had spent his time and brain on the deception?
On the evening of that day, Qing Zhu abruptly closed the door of his room, leaving Liu Mengchen, who wanted to talk to him, with a rebuff at the door.
Meanwhile, Xiao Linfengs face was carefree and happy. When he passed by Liu Mengchen, he looked at him with regret and hatred that he couldnt reform himself, "Little Zhuzi is such a simple and inexperienced child that you actually had the heart to deceive his feelings. Youre a beast! Liu Mengchen, would you say your conscience hurts?"
Liu Mengchen muttered, "It hurts."
Well, he was no longer a man inside or outside now.
Liu Mengchen said, "You were in a critical situation at the beginning. If I hadnt thought of a way, youd be in danger."
"Id rather die." Xiao Linfeng lightly spoke.
Liu Mengchen hesitated for a moment, then said, "Youre still the same as before. You would rather break than bend. You wont eat food handed out in pity and contempt. Could this be a bamboos natural character?"
Xiao Linfeng frowned, "What are you babbling about again?"
Xiao Linfengs face changed slightly. He grabbed the shoulder of Liu Mengchen, "What karma? What the hell are you talking about? You used to say things I didnt understand. You said I was a mortal and shouldnt understand these things. But now Im a cultivator. You should explain them to me, right?"
Liu Mengchen didnt answer. He turned around and walked towards his own room.
Xiao Linfeng was unsettled. He frowned for a moment, then looked at the moon again. He also went back to rest.
Anyway, he had never understood Liu Mengchen.
The next morning, Lin Xuanzhi and the others hit the road together and met Ji Yunwei, who had been waiting for them outside the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest for a while.
On Ji Yunweis shoulder stood a bird. Yan Tianhen looked at it intently and almost blurted out the name of the bird.
"Yunwei, where does this bird come from?" Lin Xuanzhi asked without his expression changing.
Ji Yunwei was also a little puzzled, "I dont know. When I woke up in the morning, I saw a bird parked at the head of my bed. I noticed that his feathers were velveted soft, like a young bird that had just been born. I planned to bring him to a peacock in my family to raise him. But unexpectedly, when the peacock saw this little fellow, he trembled in fear and knelt on the ground. I had to bring it with me tsk, I dont know what kind of rare variety it is, but the bloodline is definitely strong."
Feng Jingyu proudly "chirped" a few times, the three feathers on his head swaying and appearing to make him look particularly proud.
What was a peacock? How dare they even raise him?
If he didnt frighten the peacock to pee, then he had given enough face already!
Qing Zhu naturally knew Feng Jingyu, but he also kept quiet this time.
Lin Xuanzhi glanced at Feng Jingyus bad hair, "Maybe this is a hybrid."
Ji Yunwei replied, "Very likely. I have to study it."
Feng Jingyu, ""
If you say so, this king will roast you to ashes!
"Is Yunwei planning to bring it into the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest?" Lin Xuanzhi asked.
Ji Yunwei said, "Originally, I didnt intend to take this little guy with me. He looks so petite and weak. If I enter the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest, I wont be able to watch him. He might be swallowed by a demonic beast nearby. But maybe its because Im naturally close to demonic beasts that this bird stuck to me and followed me all the way here."
Ji Yunwei looked like he was sweetened by this, and shrugged helplessly, "There was no other choice so I brought it along."
Yan Tianhen watched Feng Jingyu playing dumb and trying to elicit peoples sympathy. He couldnt help but think, its true that hes petite, but "weak" probably has nothing to do with him, right?
Although he didnt quite understand the reason why Feng Jingyu did this, Yan Tianhen gave lots of face as he said, "Brother Ji, lets give him a name."
Ji Yunwei was very interested, "Whats a good name?"
Feng Jingyu held out his bosom and chirped twice. Did it even need to be said? Of course, it must be a powerful and domineering name like Feng Jingyu!
"Lets call it Maomao!" A kind Ji Yunwei clapped, "It looks like a feather ball. Ive never seen such a hairy bird before. The name Maomao is the most appropriate."
Yan Tianhen, ""
Lin Xuanzhi, ""
Feng Jingyu, "."
One didnt know when to inappropriately say a dirty word.
These humans were really stupid. He suddenly missed Ling Chigu very much, but after looking all over Qi City, he couldnt find even a shadow of him. But he could feel that Ling Chigu was around.
Feng Jingyu thought so but it made him feel upset.
Feng Jingyu angrily took a few shots on Ji Yunweis forehead and pecked his hair to express his dissatisfaction.
Ji Yunwei smiled with good temper, "Look, demonic beasts are sometimes like this. When he is happy, he likes to express it like this. However, Maomao looks like a young bird that has not yet been domesticated. After domestication, Maomao will not be so rude."
Feng Jingyu, "."
You are rude. Your whole family is rude!
Looking at Feng Jingyus face, Yan Tianhen couldnt help but laugh for a moment. He said, "Brother Yunwei, you must tame this bird well, or people will laugh when you take it around."
Ji Yunwei felt the same and nodded heavily.
Without saying much, the line of people made a brief introduction to each other and then all went on the road together.
They were at the edge of most of the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest. From time to time, they would see a mercenary team passing by and heading into the deeper parts of the forest. When Yan Tianhen and the rest entered the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest, they came in together on those winged unicorns so as to make faster speed.
The original carriage was unloaded since the carriage would affect the speed of the unicorns. In the forest, it would also make them a bigger target.
Ji Yunwei hadnt planned to take his mount in, but seeing that everyone else had mounts, he had to summon up his own.
Ji Yunweis mount was a lion demonic beast that looked extremely strong. The demonic beast had not yet transformed, but it had already attained spiritual wisdom. Standing there majestically, it scared the flying unicorns back.
Ah Bai and Hu Po also went around the lion, but they were not afraid of it.
Yan Tianhen reached out to touch the lions head, "Brother Yunwei, this lion looks so powerful."
"Yes." Ji Yunwei was a little proud, "My familys Curly Fur was a local tyrant in the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest."
"Curly Fur?" Yan Tianhen almost fell off his horse.
Ji Yunwei nodded, "Dont you think its fur is all curly?"
Yan Tianhen, "" It was indeed curly.
However, he still had some doubts about Ji Yunweis naming capabilities.
The shadow guards of the Yuan family also snuck into the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest with their group. However, shadow guards could only show their body shape at a critical time or when they were summoned. They couldnt be easily seen.
However, after entering the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest, Yuan Tianwen quickly called out the head of the shadow guard.
"The Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest is extremely dangerous. Your usual hiding methods may not be very suitable. You may as well join us on the road." Yuan Tianwen said to the silent man with a veneer on his face that couldnt be seen.
Yuan One answered, "This is not good. We are better suited to protecting the Young Master and the Young Mistress in the dark."
Duan Yuyang clicked his tongue, "Dont be so hard-headed. Rules are dead and people are alive. Its safer to go on the road together than to hide."
Yuan One still had some worries. They had helped Yuan Tianwen solve many enemies in secret. If they were exposed, the hidden dangers around them would be exposed to Yuan Tianwen and the others. In this way, wouldnt there be no meaning for a shadow guards existence?
However, due to Duan Yuyangs request, Yuan One thought for a while and decided, "Since Young Mistress has already spoken, Yuan One will naturally follow suit."
Yuan One continued, "However, the shadow guards will still have to abide by their duties. Lets say that there are twenty of us, ten of us will follow the Young Mistress while ten of us will protect in the dark. How about this?"
Duan Yuyang was speechless. He wanted to help them be a bit more safe but the shadow guard raised by the Yuan family turned out to be such a block-head.
Yuan Tianwen said, "Then lets arrange it this way."
Yuan One disappeared immediately.
Yuan Tianwen turned to Duan Yuyang, "They have only one muscle in their brain. Dont worry about it."
Duan Yuyang replied, "Why shouldnt I worry about it? This shadow guard team of your Yuan family might be destroyed before they reach the depths of the forest."
Yuan Tianwen explained, "Thats not true. Although their cultivations are at most only in the Primary Realm, they have learned the art of assassination since their childhood. They know the ways of living in various environments. They are more suitable for living in the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest than we are."
Not too long later, ten cultivators came out wearing similar masks with the same appearance.
Yan Tianhen glanced over in surprise, "Your body shape and height are almost all the same!"
Yuan One said, "Only in this way can we better protect the Young Master."
Lin Xuanzhi looked at Yuan Tianwen, "As Ah Hen noticed, their body shapes seem to be based on Tianwen."
Looking at it closely, it seemed that this was indeed the case.
Yan Tianhen couldnt help asking in wonder, "Why is that?"
Yuan One said, "This is so that we can change identities with Young Master anytime and anywhere."
Yuan Tianwen acted a little bit of shame and annoyance. He stared at Yuan One like hes asking why should these things be said?
If it werent for his father treasuring him too much for fear that hed encounter danger one day, how could one think of replacing the Young Master with a copycat even when he had no chance of escape?
