The idle clouds in the sky slowly passed by. There were no more frogs beside the small pond in the old courtyard.
Not far away from the corridor of the house, the maid who came in was dozing off. Her head suddenly lowered, as if she was about to wake up soon, but such an action somehow did not wake her up in her sleep.
The maid sank into sleep again.
Chizuko Nagato also retracted her gaze at this time, and looked at the elder brother who suddenly appeared. She found that the other person was also looking at her at this time.
Boss Luo put his finger to his lips and made a gesture to lower volume before smiling.
Chizuko Nagato nodded and squatted at the side of the pond again, as if looking forward to another frog.
The boss stood up at this time. Chizuko Nagato heard the movement and did not get up, just squatting on her knees, raising her face and asking curiously, “Are you going to leave?”
“Can you do something for me?” asked Luo Qiu softly.
Chizuko Nagato nodded.
A small gift box suddenly appeared on the palm of the boss. Chizuko Nagato’s eyes widened, full of curiosity about such a magical situation.
“Later, someone will come to you. Can you give this box to him for me? However, if you don’t want to give it to him, you can also not give it to him. It depends on your wishes. Do you think it is okay?”
Chizuko Nagato nodded.
Luo Qiu smiled slightly and sent a box to Chizuko Nagato. He then looked up at the cherry blossom tree in front of him. Since there was no spring, the tree was no different from ordinary trees.
“When the cherry blossoms are dancing in the sky, they are beautiful.”
“Have you seen them?”
“I’m quite lucky to see it before.” Boss Luo finally leaned slightly towards Chizuko Nagato, “We shall meet again if fate allows us to meet again.”
In the blink of an eye, the elder brother who suddenly appeared, and then read her the story had disappeared. Chizuko Nagato blinked and looked at the small box that had been delivered to her.
She held it up. The rectangular box was light in her palm. Chizuko Nagato shook it at this time. She found that there was nothing inside, so she quickly put it down again, no longer caring about it.
As the mysterious elder brother said, someone did come to this old courtyard to look for Chizuko Nagato in a while, but it was obviously someone Chizuko Nagato knew.
At the hallway outside the house, Shinji Nagato had arrived. He yelled at the maid who was secretly dozing off. Chizuko Nagato heard the sound. Shinji Nagato snorted coldly and waved his hand. The maid quickly walked into the house in fear.
After that, Shinji Nagato walked towards Chizuko Nagato in a wooden expression.
“Brother Shinji, do you want to play with me?” Chizuko Nagato blinked her eyes and asked.
Shinji Nagato frowned. He did not like the existence of Chizuko Nagato very much. All the servants knew she was leftovers of fornication between his father and Uncle Saburo’s wife.
This was too unbearable for Shinji Nagato, who attached great importance to the reputation of the Nagato family. What was even more unbearable was that although Master Nagato would not call Chizuko Nagato to his side often, he occasionally gazed at her when eating. Shinji Nagato could sense that she garnered more eyes and attention than him.
Shinji Nagato vaguely felt that in his father’s mind, Chizuko Nagato seemed to be more important than him.
“Does it still hurt?” Shinji Nagato asked indifferently.
Chizuko Nagato touched his bandaged forehead, then shook her head.
Shinji Nagato let out an ‘en,‘ and then he said in a deep voice, “Remember! Do not tell others that you’re hurt because I push you to the ground. Otherwise, Axiu and you will suffer! Got it!?”
Chizuko Nagato nodded, then stood up, “Brother Shinji, play with me.”
“Play on your own! I don’t have time to fool with you!” Shinji Nagato flicked his sleeves away. Chizuko Nagato looked bad with the injury, so naturally she would not attend the dinner. But, he got to attend. This was a good opportunity to get close to Kondo’s Tsukihime.
Chizuko Nagato watched Shinji Nagato leave, tilted her neck, then looked in another direction for a while.
In the direction of the corner of the room that she stared at, a figure slowly walked out. It was Mo Xiaofei wearing the disguise of ‘Sasaki Kojiro.’
At this time, Mo Xiaofei also frowned, looked around, hesitated for a moment before approaching Chizuko Nagato. He asked probingly, “You knew I was here already?”
It was the first time that Mo Xiaofei came so close to Chizuko Nagato to observe her. In the past, he had been peeping from a distance. After all, he did not have Zixing’s aid in the past. He did not have the identity of the Kondo’s Ashigaru too. He could not walk in the Nagato house blatantly.
This little girl is too cute, it seems that a trace of Haru Narukami can be seen between her eyebrows. But thinking of Haru Narukami’s crazy and terrifying appearance in the dungeon now, Mo Xiaofei was really unable to connect Chizuko Nagato and Haru Narukami… He thought of Zixing’s proposal again.
If I fail to bring Saburo Nagato into the dungeon, then I should just bring Chizuko Nagato with me. Now there is no one around, should I?
Mo Xiaofei’s gaze suddenly seemed uncertain. It would take a lot of effort to catch Saburo Nagato, but for a small child like Chizuko Nagato.
Plus, at this time, no one was around!
While hesitating, Mo Xiaofei suddenly saw something behind Chizuko Nagato. He subconsciously looked at it, only to find that it turned out to be just a gift box that could be seen everywhere. He noticed that he was really too nervous. Wait! How come there is such a gift box here!?
Although the Yan Wuyue World was an alternative time, it was older in historical time. How could such a modern gift box appear? This kind of packaging and ribbon. This was clearly the product of a modern society!
While Mo Xiaofei was surprised, Chizuko Nagato quickly picked up the box on the ground, hugged it, and then took a step back in front of Mo Xiaofei.
“I have no ill will!” Mo Xiaofei felt like a pot of cold water doused over him. He felt the alert in Chizuko Nagato’s gaze, and had to tone down his voice, “Can I look at your box? It may be important to me! Please let me have a look, can you?”
Chizuko Nagato still shook her head and took a step back again.
“Give it to me!” Mo Xiaofei couldn’t control the impulse in his heart, and he demanded aggressively. This modern item that should not be here might be related to him to solve the mystery of time reset!
Chizuko Nagato turned around and ran away. Mo Xiaofei was anxious and did not bother explaining too much, so he chased her up. Unexpectedly, there was a small pond in front of him. Chizuko Nagato did not notice and fell into the water. She was drowning!
Mo Xiaofei was startled, only feeling cold in his hands and feet. What the hell am I doing!
He ignored the shuddering feeling and jumped directly into the pool. Fortunately the pool was not deep, he finally got Chizuko Nagato by his side and brought her out.
“What sound is that? Who are you!? What did you do to Miss Chizuko!? Someone!”
It was the maid who returned to the house to clean up after being scolded by Shinji Nagato. Hearing the commotion, she hurriedly came out, only to catch sight of this. She could not help but yell in a panic.
Mo Xiaofei saw that things had developed until this point; he quickly ran to the maid and knocked the person unconscious on the ground. He looked at Chizuko Nagato who was in a coma after drowning, and then at the maid whom he knocked out on the ground. He leaned weakly against the fence with a panic face, “Is this really me?”
Zixing quietly returned to the place arranged for her by Nagato’s house. Then, the handmaid pretending to be her stepped back. She opened a door and walked into the room.
Zixing frowned when she walked in here.
She saw Mo Xiaofei was sitting alone, leaning against the wall, desperately. Hearing the sound, Mo Xiaofei moved a bit with a zombie-like appearance, which made Zixing feel that the atmosphere was a little uncomfortable, “What happened, Brother Mo?”
“Can you change her clothes first?” Mo Xiaofei pointed his finger next to him at this time.
Chizuko Nagato lay on a quilt like this, wet and she could not seem to wake up.
“Change her clothes. I will come back later.” Mo Xiaofei stood up suddenly at this time, “Yes, you change her clothes. I will wait for you outside. Call me when you are done!”
He walked out of the bedroom quickly, sliding the door, which seemed heavy to Zixing.
Zixing frowned immediately. She sighed across this ancient paper door. She knew that Mo Xiaofei had not walked far outside this door. Probably he had found a place to sit down again.
Some strange syllables began to emanate from her mouth, and became a continuous piece, like a continuous drizzle. Then, they finally reached Mo Xiaofei’s ears.
