Mo Xiaofei closed his eyes, doing simple meditation practice. The origin of his superpowers came from the club’s development of his brain. A powerful mental power could enhance the superpowers more easily.
The meditation practice was the Daoist visualization method taught by Long Xiruo. There was no doubt that this magnificent visualization method had given Mo Xiaofei many surprises in his early days of training.
At this moment, Mo Xiaofei was attempting to speed up the recovery of his superpowers through the visualization method.
While meditating on the Heart Sutra taught by Zixing in his heart, he utilized the visualization method as well. Such multitasking was easy for Mo Xiaofei, who had passed the training of levitating and maneuvering multiple stones simultaneously.
The bedroom door opened gently. Zixing didn’t open the veil on her face until she closed the door. After a while, Mo Xiaofei slowly halted his cultivation and woke up, “Why did that Liang Tian come to you suddenly?”
Zixing said calmly, “I asked him to look up the names of all the villagers in Unripe Rice Village to see if we overlook someone.”
Mo Xiaofei was taken aback and then nodded. Although he had a year’s worth of reset loop, he didn’t dare say that he didn’t miss anything. In his heart, he admired Zixing’s meticulous approach.
There are still many shortcomings in me. Mo Xiaofei cautioned himself in his heart. Then, he once again entered the visualization flow.
Before the end of the third day, he had discussed with Zixing and tried not to trigger any event. He would validate if he could proceed over the third day and enter the fourth day, Unripe Rice Village’s ritual day.
Zixing watched Mo Xiaofei entering a state similar to cultivation and sat beside him. She recalled the text rubbings that Liang Tian had brought to him, but she fell into contemplation.
This day passed peacefully in such a quiet environment.
Since the Nagato family was under the Kondo family, the people in the Nagato family didn’t dare to bother casually. As for Nagato Munechika, he never left the place where he lived, claiming that he was unwell and needed to rest alone. Even Nagato Munechika’s wife could not get close to him.
Although it was unreasonable for the wife not able to approach him, Nagato Munechika’s words had supreme power in this household. No one could resist the command.
Chizuko Nagato still didn’t wake up. The family arranged a handmaid for her and fed her some rice soup for her meals.
Saburo Nagato went missing as well, and the subordinates didn’t mention it much.
Time flew to the third day in the quiet Nagato’s mansion. Mo Xiaofei and Zixing still hid in the courtyard, did not come out, quietly waiting for the night to come.
According to Mo Xiaofei, after midnight on the third day, he would be reset back to the first day. With the arrival of midnight, the two sitting still in the bedroom lost their calm.
Mo Xiaofei halted his visualization practice but just meditated Heart Sutra silently in his heart. He didn’t know if he would be able to bear it if he returned to the first day in the end. This time he had unprecedented anticipations.
Zixing could even hear Me Xiaofei gradually turbid breathing. She suddenly said, “Brother Mo, how much do you know about Divine Land?”
Mo Xiaofei was taken aback, not knowing why Zixing suddenly asked about this, so he subconsciously said, “Divine Land, do you mean our Great Celestial Empire?”
“Um…” Zixing pondered for a while and asked again, “Then, let me ask you again, Brother Mo. Do you know why there are so many demon beasts in this world, but there is so little news about it in human society? Demon beasts have great power, but the state allows us to exist. Don’t you think it’s strange?”
Mo Xiaofei said, “I heard the teacher mentioning it occasionally. It seems there is an agreement. But the teacher didn’t wish to say more, so I didn’t dare to ask further.”
“Divine Land Two-world Agreement.” Zixing said indifferently at this time, “I believe Brother Mo will not be unfamiliar at the time of signing. It was the day when the country was founded. Master Long and the first generation of great person, who both were still lying in the crystal coffin, signed it.”
“Grandpa Mao?” Mo Xiaofei’s eyes widened.
Zixing nodded, “That great person is a human who possesses a true dragon fate. Strictly speaking, as the guardian true dragon of Divine Land, Master Long has some stories with this great person.”
True Dragon of Divine Land, the true dragon fate… Even though Mo Xiaofei gained much knowledge and experience, he was still shocked by this secret.
“The Divine Land Two-world Agreement between the two worlds, one is the human world, that is our current society. The other is our demon beast world.” Zixing looked at Mo Xiaofei at this time and said, “The demon beast race’s fortune is dissipating, but humanity is prosperous. In another hundred years, the demon beast race in Divine Land will be extinct. The agreement that Master Long signed with that great person stipulated that the demon beast race is not allowed to appear in modern society. However, the real content is to borrow a trace of prosperity from humanity so that the demon beast race can continue to exist.”
“Borrow prosperity? Can this thing be borrowed?” Mo Xiaofei found it inexplicable. Time passed unknowingly amidst their chatter.
“It’s prosperity,’ but it is more than mere luck.”
Zixing said indifferently, “However, only Master Long, Xuan Yuan Royal Family, and some ancient core ethnic groups in the demon beast race know about the content of this part of the agreement. Even for those core ethnic groups who knew, those aware of it are limited to those in power.”
“But why are you telling me this?” Mo Xiaofei frowned.
“I haven’t heard of Master Long accepting as a disciple for so many years.” Zixing said sternly at this time, “Brother Mo, although you are a human being, you are in more power than the authorities in the ancient demon beast clan in terms of status. Under the circumstances, you’re naturally qualified to know this matter.”
Mo Xiaofei thought that he was just Long Xiruo’s student without anticipating this. After thinking deeply for a moment, he recalled the demon beast group’s respectful demeanor in front of him, and he frowned. He could not accept it and averted it.
Mo Xiaofei shook his head, but thinking of the content of this agreement, he was also puzzled at the moment, “That… I don’t have ill intent. I don’t understand it. Why was Mao…that great person willing to agree to lend a part of humanity’s fortune? After all… Anyway… I mean…”
“Brother Mo wanted to say that we are off different races with different motives. Why should he help us who pose a huge threat to humans?” Zixing narrowed her eyes.
Zixing shook her head and said, “Actually, you don’t need to mind this. To be honest, the great person lent away a part of the fortune resignedly. After all, it was at the emergency. Many demon beast clans were full of anxiety. Many extremists even thought of dangerous ideas. That is since humanity is prosperous, then they will wipe out the entire humanity. Without the human race in this world, human fortune is non-existent. But with that, It will inevitably cause the Divine Land to become a land of death. This is something Master Long and the great person are unwilling to see. Again, at that time, it coincided with the founding of a new country and the return of the gold era. If there is a war with the demon beast race again, it will worsen the new country. The great person also had to consider the ability of the new country to bear it.”
Zixing sighed and then said, “Although there came an agreement to borrow some of the human’s fortune, the demon beast race did not get it freely. First of all, we can hardly hold this fortune firmly. It does not benefit a lot of demon beast clans. Those demon beast clans that failed to acquire the allocation of fortune will die gradually. In the past 100 years, the number of demon beasts has dropped sharply to the point that terrifies us. As for the rest, most of them have already withdrawn from the major cities of the world and moved into the mountains and forests. There are also some secluded in their territories since ancient times. Of course, there are also masters like Master Long that create a city where the demon beast lives. But in such cities, the restrictions on the demon beast are generally stringent.”
“Are there many cities like this?”
“Not many. There are only seven such cities in the current Celestial Empire.” Zixing sighed, “There are also some wild demon beasts roaming in other cities. Some dwell in deep mountains and forests. But, they can’t get the shelter of this part of the fortune. They usually die earlier. At the same time, it will be processed by the special department of your country. The number shall not exceed 500,000! The number of demon beasts is not allowed to exceed 500,000! This is also stipulated in the agreement. Moreover, at least a hundred greater demon beasts must be sent to serve your national institutions every ten years. For what these supernatural forces do, Brother Mo, you will understand later. You will even encounter them.”
“This is so unexpected…” Mo Xiaofei gave a wry smile, “This kind of agreement is a bit…”
“Humiliate your country and lose power?” replied Zixing calmly.
Mo Xiaofei hurriedly said, “I didn’t mean that. It’s just. How do I put it? How could the teacher accept such an agreement!? For the demon beasts, this is a bit…”
