Question: What is the first thing you did wrong when you were a kid? When was it? Do you remember?
I don’t remember.
Q: Why don’t you remember?
Why should I remember it? It’s what it is.
Generally speaking, the young witch was much weaker than Chizuko Nagato today. This might be because Chizuko Nagato had become a demon beast, or because the young witch and Miki had merged, or because Chizuko Nagato was calmer than the younger witch now.
But instead, Mo Xiaofei had another perspective as to why ‘Chizuko Nagato’ was so much cool-headed compared to the young witch. Even though the demon beast Chizuko Nagato was riled up, Mo Xiaofei still keenly felt the awe-inspiring indifference in her eyes.
Mo Xiaofei also felt that this young witch was indifferent, but this indifference was more due to her temperament.
The indifference of the demon beast-like Chizuko Nagato was the indifference to ordinary beings. To put it bluntly, she looked down on all mortals as though she was a higher-level life form.
No matter the situation, the young witch did not hesitate to fire arrows one after another to the sky, moving steadily without hesitation. Mo Xiaofei did not know if this was the level which a good archer could possess. However, it certainly was not easy for a fourteen years old girl to achieve this.
No matter what, the young witch was firing at herself. The arrow that was imbued with spiritual power was aimed at herself – she in the past.
Windchaser was still confused, but Mo Xiaofei gradually figured out some context.
Long Xiruo said that people who had developed their brains would become more intelligent sooner or later, just like the Buddha’s saying that they had opened up the roots of wisdom. Mo Xiaofei couldn’t realize enlightenment, but he was able to grasp the context.
Of course, other factors contributed to Mo Xiaofei grasping what was happening. These factors include the experience in the one-year time reset loop nightmare, the magical experience to be synchronized with Chizuko Nagato’s chaotic spirit, and watching the fight between the young witch and the fox demon beast Chizuko Nagato. Otherwise, he couldn’t get a sense of the matter even if he had the wisdom roots like what Long Xiruo said.
Unripe Rice Village must have been destroyed long ago. The village no longer existed. When he and Zixing roamed around Unripe Rice Village, they should have fallen into place similar to an illusion. The source of this illusion was Chizuko Nagato, who was six years old.
Miki should be the abandoned six years old Chizuko Nagato after the destruction of Unripe Rice Village. It was the self who destroyed everything and destroyed the root cause.
The witch should be the Chizuko Nagato when she grew up.
With this thought in mind, the Chizuko Nagato that Mo Xiaofei and Zixing saw in Unripe Rice Village should have been created by Miki. In theory, it should be.
However, Mo Xiaofei had not been able to figure out how. Miki created this six years old Chizuko Nagato in the fantasy world, but how did she move from fantasy to reality and merge with herself. At this time, why was she confronting herself who grew up to become a witch?
There was another Miki.
Mo Xiaofei subconsciously raised his head and looked at the towering cherry blossom tree. At a particular section of the trunk, there was also a Miki.
Could it be that even the current environment is just a dream?
“Windchaser, did you see Zixing?” Mo Xiaofei thought he had figured out some clues, but in the end, he found that he seemed to be caught in a bigger mystery again. He couldn’t help but think of Zixing at this time. He only knew for the time being that she was the Greedy Wolf Clan Young Master, and she had excellent critical thinking skills. Perhaps if Mo Xiaofei told her these things, she could give himself an answer.
“Zixing! Is she here too!?” Windchaser hurriedly said, at this time!
“Hey, don’t you know?” Mo Xiaofei was taken aback and then said, “Zixing was the first one you rescued when you were at the ritual plaza.”
“She… but she looks like…” Windchaser wanted to say something, but a realization came to his mind. Whether it was him or his elder brother Mo Xiaofei, they looked like someone else now!
“Oh! She is there!”
Mo Xiaofei seemed to have forgotten about him running rampant just now. However, Windchaser was well aware of it. For example, when the girl in the white kimono appeared, there was also Zixing who followed suit!
Windchaser climbed up the tree root. His eyes searched around quickly, and soon he found Tsukihime Kondo, which Zixing possessed. She seemed to be unconscious. She was lying on the ground at this time, fortunately not far from him.
“Brother, I’ll be back soon!” said Windchaser directly.
Greedy Wolf Ensoulment consumed too much power. Windchaser had halted the activation of that ability. However, it wasn’t too straining to activate Godspeed.
Windchaser disappeared suddenly; he went to Zixing’s side in the blink of an eye. Mo Xiaofei moved his lips, not because Windchaser was too fast, but because the scene was shocking.
“Is he Quicksilver? No, I should name him Windchaser Quicktime.” Mo Xiaofei shook his head and looked at the battle between the young witch and the fox demon beast – Chizuko Nagato.
This was a struggle between the present self and the abandoned self in the past. Although the demon beast – Chizuko Nagato, was much stronger than the young witch on the surface, both sides were on equal ground.
Suddenly a black shadow flickered. Mo Xiaofei took a look. It turned out that Windchaser had returned here with his arms holding Zixing. However, Windchaser was also carrying another man at this moment.
