Strictly speaking, this place under the cherry blossom trees on the hillside was like the Yan Wuyue World’s origin, Pillar of Heaven. Not only mortals, but even the so-called ‘deities’ could not step into this place.
Even Izanagi and Izanami could not come in easily. It applied similarly to Eric too. Of course, Izanagi and Izanami would not leave Yahiro-dono easily.
When Eric invaded Yan Wuyue and stole nearly one-third of the world’s origin rules, both sides would not tolerate each other.
Eric was drinking black tea leisurely. There was already a petite figure appearing under the sakura tree. It was Miki, a girl in a kimono.
However, Miki was not the only one. At this moment, Miki’s hands held another woman. A Tachi was inserted into the alluring Amaterasu Omikami’s chest!
“How did you achieve that?” asked Eric curiously.
He was unlike the laid-back boss with the ability to know he wanted to know. Although he could vaguely guess it, he couldn’t go to every step in detail.
“Takiribime.” Miki smiled slightly with a smug look, “She plans to go back to report something. I intercepted her on the way, then replaced her and approached Amaterasu.”
While speaking, Miki let go of her hands. Amaterasu Omikami, held in her hands at this moment, slowly floated in front of Eric.
“Splendid work.” Eric gently swept his fingers across Amaterasu Omikami’s delicate face but finally pulled out the Tachi inserted into Amaterasu Omikami.
Miki looked at Eric’s actions in a puzzled manner, frowned, and said, “Master Eric, Amaterasu has inherited some of the powers of the two origin deities over the world. Don’t you plan to absorb it?”
“As you said, Amaterasu inherited the powers of Izanagi and Izanami. Since they are the source, it is not optimal to grab it now, or else you will be discovered immediately.” Eric smiled slightly and let the sleeping Amaterasu sink to the ground.
At this time, among the soil under the cherry tree, the tree’s roots slowly stretched out. The tree roots seemed to be alive. It split out at once like a beast’s mouth. It swallowed the Amaterasu into it and only exposed her head.
The roots then stood upright. It hardened and turned into wood-colored pillars.
“Of course, it’s not that I won’t absorb it. It’s just that it’s not time yet.” Eric assessed her like looking at a masterpiece.
He suddenly sighed and said, “If we had a little more time, it would be more foolproof, but I don’t expect him to come over suddenly.”
Miki frowned. “Sir Eric, are you talking about that businessman?”
Eric sat down again and said slowly, “You know, my original plan was to consume Yan Wuyue world slowly. This is the safest way. But since he is here, even the safest way will have a lot of variables.”
Miki shook her head.
Eric said calmly, “He… or that place will only help customers. In other words, he is at nobody’s side. If I don’t take action in advance, based on the deities in Yahiro-dono’s perception over Yan Wuyue, they will soon be able to discover this boss’s arrival. If they were to make a deal earlier than me, I am afraid that my efforts during this period will be ruined.”
Eric shook his head, seemingly discouraged, but it was more of resignation, “So I have to give up some of the benefits and even need to advance my plan.”
“Master Eric… Is that person so strong? Even you…” Miki looked puzzled.
She had walked in front of Eric and sat down with her hands in a lotus flower posture, looking up while supporting her cheeks.
“You don’t understand.” Eric shook his head and reached out to tidy up Miki’s bangs. “It’s messed up.”
“It’s fine,” Miki said nonchalantly but enjoyed it.
She then looked at the Amaterasu Omikami sleeping among the roots of the cherry tree. She suddenly said, “Master Eric, do I need to get Tsukuyomi and Susanoo together as well?”
“I need you to replace Amaterasu for the time being.” Eric said, “If Izanagi and Izanami are interested in letting Three Deities take the lead against me, how can I ruin such a great opportunity?”
Miki said, “I will help Master Eric fulfill your wish and successfully obtain the Yan Wuyue world!”
“Then, please do. Miki is reliable.” Eric smiled softly and then said, “Before you set off, let’s have something to eat.”
“Yeah!” The girl raised her head and looked happy.
Watching Miki leave, Eric whispered to himself, “Unfortunately, you have not successfully intercept Takiribime. After all, you still lack experience. This is the so-called variable.”
He sighed faintly, “Then, Miki. How much can you do for me?”
He suddenly took out the club owner’s gift, wrapped his fingers on the ribbon for packaging, hesitating whether to open it up and take a look.
The current club owner gave gifts to regular customers purely. The previous club owner would never do this kind of thing. He could not comprehend the young new club owner.
“If it’s a surprise, let’s keep it to the end.”
If it were not a pleasant surprise, opening it now would affect his mood.
Somewhere in the room of the Nagato’s house, a samurai named Sasaki Kojiro had his hands tied and was being pressed to the ground by a samurai from the Kondo family.
“Don’t struggle! Hold your head up!” The Kondo family’s samurai said fiercely at this time, “Spit it out! Who sent you here! Is it the Nagato family? What is your purpose!? Listen, if you dare not to spit it out, I will let you know what is called pain!”
Sasaki Kojiro. Mo Xiaofei raised his head at this time, looking at the woman sitting quietly in front of him, who seemed to be called Tsukihime Kondo.
In his memory, Tsukihime Kondo should also be one of the plot characters in the movie.
But that was not right; this main plot character shouldn’t appear in Unripe Rice Village!
According to the plot that Mo Xiaofei knew: The modern-times heroine who came here through crossing the time did not appear in Unripe Rice Village at first but in other places. The heroine would pass through the Kondo family’s castle. Then, it should be the plot of utilizing modern knowledge to cure the malnutrition of Tsukihime Kondo or the problem of poor appetite. Why did Tsukihime Kondo come to Unripe Rice Village?
Sure enough, only the characters were similar here, but the plot development was completely different. Then, had the heroine in the movie existed in this world?
Mo Xiaofei’s gaze was filled with a tired look that was apparent. At this time, the Kondo family’s samurai saw that the peeper hadn’t spoken for a long time, so he planned to impose some necessary measures.
“Since you are so stubborn, don’t blame me for being rude!” sneered the samurai.
Mo Xiaofei struggled with his head pressed to the ground at this time but suddenly thundered, “Narukami, Kushina Narukami! Do you know her!?”
“I don’t know what you are saying!” The Kondo family’s samurai snorted coldly and directly put his hand on the back of Mo Xiaofei’s neck.
“Wait a minute.” Unexpectedly, Miss Tsukihime of the Kondo family said calmly at this time, “Stop first. I have some questions to ask.”
“Yes!” Naturally, the samurai would not defy Miss Tsukihime’s orders and lifted Mo Xiaofei directly.
Tsukihime Kondo said calmly at this time, “Kushina Narukami, who are you?”
