“Damn you!” Izanami was so infuriated that the rotting flesh all over her body squirmed suddenly.
Eric continued, “Remember the question I asked you, Ms. Izanami. If you and Izanagi didn’t make a declaration in front of the massive boulder, how good would it be?”
“Damn it! The illusion you put onto me at Yahiro-dono, you peeped on me…” Izanami screamed. The underworld water rushed towards Eric frantically!
“I can help you wash away the underworld qi of this body and restore you to your original appearance,” said Eric softly.
The turbulent underworld water stopped abruptly. Izanami stared at Eric tightly without saying a word.
Looking at Izanami, who stopped, Eric said again, “Do you know about the club? I know that after I leave, the maid of that club will not let go of the opportunity to promote in front of you. I also know that as long as you are willing to trade with the club, you can also wash away the underworld qi and restore your true face. But you must know that this requires a huge price. After all, the underworld qi has been completely integrated with your soul. Think about how hard it is to strip them from your soul. I think you should know better than me. However, as long as you let me go, the price will be reduced by a great margin.”
“Why should I believe you?” Izanami was silent for a long time before finally speaking out.
Eric sighed and said faintly, “No matter how good it is to have a fragmented world, it is only one of me. Even with the slightest possibility of becoming no longer alone, I’ll be the moth rushing to the fire. Even if I know, it may still be illusory.”
“You too…” Izanami suddenly calmed down, but after a long time, she said coldly, “Orochi, how much has he succeeded?”
“Come with me.” Eric nodded.
When Izanami asked this sentence, it proved that an unstable temporary cooperative relationship began.
Unripe Rice Village was still peaceful, at least on the surface.
The next day, no one noticed the disappearance of Saburo Nagato. Or, even if Saburo Nagato suddenly disappeared for a day or two, everyone would not feel strange.
Saburo Nagato had often been intoxicated since he came back from the battlefield to recover from his wounds. He fell into the river once. Half of his body was immersed in the water. Luckily, he was not washed away by the river. But there was another thing for the servants of the Nagato family to talk about.
Miss Chizuko Nagato had suffered an illness. She had never woken up since then. There were no doctors in Unripe Rice Village, but there were some elderly who knew some pharmacology.
But after the old man investigated it, he shook his head and said that he didn’t know what happened. But, Miss Chizuko did not show pain, as if she was just asleep, breathing smoothly.
“It seems that the handmaid who took care of Chizuko Nagato temporarily didn’t dare to say anything out.”
In the yard where Miss Tsukihime of Kondo’s family stayed, Zixing and Mo Xiaofei discussed the next plan after dismissing all her subordinates.
“Chizuko Nagato is in a coma, but somehow she is still fine.” Mo Xiaofei rubbed his chin and said, “So even if the maid saw me, knew that I knocked him unconscious, and even though Chizuko Nagato’s coma was related to me, she didn’t dare to say it. She was even more afraid of the punishment from the Nagato family, so she chose to remain silent.”
“That’s reasonable.” Zixing nodded and said, “Nagato Munechika did not show up today. He said that he contracted the cold and became sick after dinner last night. It became difficult for him to show himself. I guess he probably is in the dungeon at this time. Don’t forget that he took a deity away!”
Mo Xiaofei nodded, “But no matter what, we can’t act rashly now. See if we can survive the third day without resetting the time. If the time is reset, then history can be repeated once again. We will find out what Nagato Munechika did after taking the muse away.”
If the time is reset again, that is to make Saburo Nagato die again. Anyway, if I follow the steps, there should not be much deviation.
Zixing nodded and suddenly asked, “Brother Mo, how do you feel? I seem to feel like I’ve recovered a little bit further.”
After a night’s rest, Zixing felt that her faint demon beast power had increased a lot, although it was still weak.
“About 20%.” Mo Xiaofei sharpened his senses, “I feel my power is still recovering, but the recovery is starting to slow down. There should be a limit.”
“For these two days, let’s just hold and wait for the end of the third day.” Zixing also nodded.
At this moment, the Kondo family’s samurai outside suddenly called out. Zixing made a silent gesture to Mo Xiaofei. Mo Xiaofei also hid behind a screen carefully.
“What’s the matter?” Zixing replied indifferently at this moment.
“Miss Tsukihime, there is a guy named Liang Tian outside the yard who claims to be a subordinate of the Nagato family.” The samurai explained without missing any details, “He claimed that he was looking for a handmaid called Azi. But there is no such person called Azi at this place. But, I think he isn’t lying, lest there are pending matters. Hence, I came to inform you about it!”
“I see. Let this person wait in the side room. I will make arrangements.” Zixing ordered indifferently.
Liang Tian. Is there any news about the fuzzy font carved on the stone pedestal of the fox demon beast?
“Liang Tian, what are you looking for?”
“Sure enough, it is Miss Azi! I have mentioned it, but Sir Samurai outside insists on saying that I am a liar!” Liang Tian cupped his hands at this time, still showing flattery.
“Tell me what you came here for.” Zixing still wore a veil this time, but her eyes exuded pressure.
Liang Tian was startled. He didn’t dare to look up, lowered his head, and said, “This is the case. About the text carved on the stone pedestal that Miss Azi instructed, I found the stone rubbing from someone in the village after further investigation. Miss Azi, I know you are interested in it, so I took a lot of effort to get it!”
Zixing calmly nodded and said, “Good job. After I go back, I will tell Miss Tsukihime and ask her to compliment you in front of Master Nagato. Let me see the things first.”
Liang Tian pushed a moldy scroll slowly to Zixing. He even opened it up carefully for Zixing.
Zixing had keen eyesight. She could read the text in a glance and won’t forget it. In just one glance, she comprehended the content.
Her expression was calm. Liang Tian was proficient in discerning other’s thoughts from facial expression language, and yet he did not get any clue. It seems that Miss Azi of the Kondo family doesn’t seem to be too pleased.
Liang Tian couldn’t help but get a little disappointed in his heart.
But, Zixing was far from at peace like what she showed on the surface.
A monstrous tide had already set off in her heart!
