The kimono girl just turned around and glanced at the young witch indifferently and let out a slight cold snort. She then gradually disappeared. There was nothing more important than Master Eric’s wish.
She needed to transform into Amaterasu Omikami, participate in Three Deities’ gathering, capture the other two Three Deities, and bring them to Master Eric.
The firewood of the bonfire broke as it burned, and the cracked wood made a snap.
Before the shrine, the young witch suddenly moved. The witch tilted her head; a hint of doubt flashed in her eyes. But this doubt quickly dissipated.
She sat in front of the bonfire again, occasionally adding new firewood sticks, and continued to read the travel note on her hand.
Time resumed again.
She felt that she could live like this forever.
The things described in the book were exciting. She did not want to finish reading it all at once. The corners of the young witch’s mouth curved up slightly.
Then, I will pause a bit in my reading. The young witch thought so in her heart, but her fingers turned a new page subconsciously. When she was about to finish reading the page, the young witch was surprised to find a black card after flipping the page.
The witch held the black card in her hand. She did not know what kind of material the black card was and why it was sandwiched in this ancient book. But, it seemed appropriate for a bookmark.
Now that she was interrupted by the black card after flipping the page, she stopped there. The young witch closed the ancient book with both hands, then closed her eyes, savoring the reading.
She stood up, and the black card had become a bookmark at this time, only protruding a small section.
Fortunately for Mo Xiaofei, Zixing was unlike that muse. She did not lose the crucial part of her memory during the reset.
Naturally, the secret code, Zhen Long, was not used. Zixing also said indifferently that it did not matter if Mo Xiaofei forgot this secret code.
Since there was no loss of memory, it saved a lot of time.
Without disturbing anyone, Mo Xiaofei joined Zixing, who had come to Nagato’s house this time, and once again discussed the reason for the failure of the ‘last’ time.
“Obviously, the last shadow that appeared in front of Brother Mo and the face that looked like Haru Narukami may be the real reason for the reset.”
Mo Xiaofei directly agreed with Zixing’s idea. After some discussion, Mo Xiaofei and Zixing planned to revisit the dungeon of Nagato’s house. Since Zixing’s approach could unearth some things from Haru Narukami that he had not been able to inquire about, it meant that there was nothing wrong in this direction.
Since the method was to follow the last time, everything took place in a similar manner. There were no accidents when they entered the dungeon. As for whether they experienced the ‘Sasaki Kojiro’ incident, it did not affect anything at all.
“However, there is this one thing.” After discussing the plan again in the evening, Zixing looked at Mo Xiaofei and said what he thought, “How much does Brother Mo know about Chizuko Nagato?”
Mo Xiaofei solemnly said, “According to the movie’s spoilers and discussions on the Internet, her identity is Pen Immortal. The reason why the heroine travels from modern to ancient times is also because of Chizuko Nagato’s resentment. For the storyline, Chizuko Nagato died when she was young, but obviously, Chizuko Nagato is still alive now. Saburo Nagato has also returned. According to the plot, the village will hold a ritual soon. Chizuko Nagato is killed during the process and then becomes a resentful spirit. But you know, the time has been resetting all this while. I can’t get to the day when the ritual starts.”
Zixing lowered her head to ponder, “Haru Narukami’s reaction is fierce at the time. It appears that she is very reluctant to give birth to Chizuko Nagato. She also mentioned the word ‘monster.’ Is Chizuko Nagato a monster? I am afraid there are still many Nagato family members’ secrets we don’t know about.”
Mo Xiaofei sighed and said, “It’s a pity that I can’t use my abilities. Otherwise, I won’t be struggling so much. Master Nagato and Saburo Nagato must know something about Nagato’s family. Unfortunately, Saburo Nagato tends to be alerted even when he is drunk. As a samurai, his strength is probably outstanding too. My time is limited as well. I will enter the reset again in three days. So almost all my efforts failed… As for Master Nagato.”
As if remembering something terrible, Mo Xiaofei solemnly said at this time. “Master Nagato looks older than 50 years old, but he is powerful! Although I don’t know any sword techniques, Sasaki Kojiro’s physique is awesome. But whether it was a sneak attack or a head-on fight, I could not survive in Master Nagato’s hands…”
“Survive?” Zixing opened her mouth.
Mo Xiaofei smiled bitterly, “I have been killed by Master Nagato 34 times.”
“By a dying samurai?” Zixing was surprised.
Mo Xiaofei nodded and said. “Master Nagato is so strong that he doesn’t look like a human being. From a human point of view, it’s at a monster level!”
“Could it have something to do with the terrible thing kept in the dungeon by the Nagato family?” Zixing asked with a frown.
“You mean… the power of Master Nagato comes from the secrets of Nagato’s dungeon?”
“I don’t know the details, but…” Zixing said sternly, “I think we should start with Saburo Nagato. After all, Brother Mo can capture Saburo Nagato and interrogate him.”
Mo Xiaofei shook his head, “It’s useless. Saburo Nagato’s mouth is too tight.”
Zixing suddenly sneered, “So, if we bring Saburo Nagato to Haru Narukami, will it be different? Or, we stir chaos in the entire Unripe Rice Village, exposing the “Eternal Life Palace” in the dungeon, and Haru Narukami is not dead!”
Mo Xiaofei moved his lips with a face as though meeting a ghost.
Why does the Greedy Wolf Clan’s young master think of such a ruthless method every time?!
But after thinking about it, since there was no other righteous way to proceed, then wholly destroying everything could be a way to resolve the situation!
Mo Xiaofei narrowed his eyes. Sometimes, to accomplish something, it should be alright to do whatever it takes, right?
It was still on the hillside where the group came from. Boss Luo threw Dazhe to the Isle of Demon at this place.
The maid looked at Luo Qiu curiously at this time. They entered here to give Christmas gifts. Only Mo Xiaofei had not received it.
Luo Qiu held the gift he prepared beforehand, but it had not been sent out for a long time.
“It’s not the time yet.” Luo Qiu shook his head, put the gift box away, and said to himself, “Something has changed…”
