The surrounding tree roots protruded from the ground. Essentially, the cherry blossom tree roots covered the whole area. It was as if the tree was ingesting all the nutrients coming from the entire Yan Wuyue world.
Looking at such a desolate Yan Wuyue World, Orochi felt heartache, but it was helpless to it. As for the Yin Greedy Wolf, which Orochi had just allied with, Orochi did not expect the wolf to be of help at all.
“Judging from how these tree roots are overgrowing, I am afraid that this is the end. Even you and I will not be spared. Orochi, you have dwelled in the Yan Wuyue World for many years, is there no other way?” Yin Greedy Wolf asked hurriedly at this time.
Orochi said resignedly, “I have been sealed for thousands of years. I have only broken the seal in the past few days. I thought I could make a comeback, but I didn’t expect to be in a worse condition than when I was sealed. I was injured in this attempt. How long will it take to recover from that? Brother Alioth, I know you are in a tight spot, but so am I.”
The black shadow transformed by Yin Greedy Wolf’s will stopped at this time. It was unreconciled, unwilling to perish just after gaining freedom.
“Unless…” Orochi stopped talking at this moment.
“Unless what?” Yin Greedy Wolf asked hurriedly.
“Unless you and I leave the Yan Wuyue World and return to the main world.” Orochi’s tone was dignified, “This tree root has spread throughout Yan Wuyue, that is to say, the guy behind it has almost acquired the Yan Wuyue World. He’s on his path to becoming the true master of Yan Wuyue. In the current state of you and me, let alone conspiracy, I am afraid that we can’t even fend for ourselves. For our optimum plan, we can only leave and make a comeback another day.”
Yin Greedy Wolf was silent for a moment before it said, “You have stayed here in Yan Wuyue for so many years. Are you willing to leave like this?”
Orochi said indifferently, “Brother Alioth, have you ever heard such a saying, you need your life to enjoy your earnings?”
Yin Greedy Wolf’s will suddenly laughed, “You’re quite free and easy. Fine, Greedy Wolf Star and Alioth Star belong to the Big Dipper in the sky. As long as the stars shine, they will never be lost. Both stars will run into each other another day sooner or later. But how are we going to leave?”
Orochi said, “In the past when I entered this world fragment, I left a retreat route for myself just in case. With it, I can escape from the Yan Wuyue World. If you trust me, then stick to me.”
“You and I have made an oath, which is more intimate than blood brothers. Why shouldn’t I trust you? Brother Orochi, lead the path.”
After speaking, the black shadow transformed by Yin Greedy Wolf’s will quietly merged into the purple snake’s body.
Orochi didn’t hesitate. It glanced back and suddenly felt a sense of desolation. However, it had experienced many ups and downs, including worse situations than now. Yet, it survived until this day. It believed that it would have another chance in the future.
I still have to return to Divine Land, after all.
I wonder how the Xiangliu clan is like now. The purple snake’s figure drifted away. Orochi had the feeling of a scholar returning home like those during the Chinese imperial era.
Mo Xiaofei had forgotten how many times he woke up with a dizzy head.
Blue Sky with white clouds, clear breeze in the mountains, and whirling tree shadows. Watching the familiar scene before him, Mo Xiaofei stood quietly. Not far away, a young girl carrying a basket was walking with her head down, full of thoughts.
I’m back here again. I’m back on the first day.
Mo Xiaofei knew where he was. He was not at all irritable this time, nor was he uneasy. He even found this ability to “go back to the past” interesting. If this setting were placed on the protagonist of a novel, it would be like a cheating mechanism. After all, having an insight into the opportunities would guarantee various benefits.
It was a pity this cheat only lasted for three days, so it was useless.
Mo Xiaofei muttered Heart Sutra silently in his heart, making him calmer. His spirit was still a bit tired. Looking at the girl in the village carrying a basket while walking toward him out of curiosity and remembering the scenes she might have experienced long ago, a wild idea came into his heart all of a sudden.
“Takeko…” Mo Xiaofei muttered softly.
The girl who approached seemed to have also spotted a stranger who appeared in this place. It appeared that he was a Sir Samurai. Only when her eyes met this Sir Samurai, she saw Sir Samurai beckoning to her again.
“Sir, are you calling me out?” Takeko was a little uneasy.
“Can you let me stay for the night?” Mo Xiaofei smiled slightly, “I’m a little tired after traveling to this place.”
Takeko was taken aback, looking at this strong and tall Sir Samurai, who was far more handsome than the man in the village. In her memories, only the Young Master Shinji of the Nagato family could match it.
When praying for the New Year this year, she glanced at the Young Master Shinji of Nagato’s family from a distance and wondered how there could be such a good-looking person in the world. However, the Sir Samurai in front of her was far more surreal. He even had a bit more breathtaking temperament than Master Shinji. A feeling that made people find him reliable.
“Yes, it’s okay.” Takeko lowered her head slightly anxiously. A slightly red hue appeared on her face.
“Then, lead the way.” Mo Xiaofei nodded.
Takeko led the handsome Sir Samurai into Unripe Rice Village. At this moment, Mo Xiaofei once again looked at the village he had seen countless times. He recalled some scenes on the destruction of Unripe Rice Village. Both scenes were worlds apart.
This time, I wonder if Zixing will appear again?
“Takeko, in a few days, you will be fourteen years old.” On the way, Mo Xiaofei suddenly asked.
“Yeah, three more days later, which happens to be the ritual day,” Takeko replied subconsciously. She soon found it unbelievable. She opened her mouth slightly and said in surprise, “Sir, how do you know Takeko’s name? You also know my birthday?”
“Because I have the prophecy ability.” Mo Xiaofei stopped and looked at Takeko seriously, “I can see the future.”
“Ah!” Takeko was taken aback, then shook her head. She did not believe what Samurai said, even in the civilian’s shoes to a noble Samurai.
“I know you don’t believe it, but I can prove it.” Mo Xiaofei suddenly pointed his finger forward, “After a while, there will be a child coming out there along with a grandfather. A child will fall off because of playfulness. There will be a bruise on his right knee.”
Takeko looked toward the direction subconsciously and waited quietly for a while, only to see an old man walking with a pile of firewood on his back and a child behind him. Takeko recognized that the kid was a naughty kid. Then, the child suddenly tripped over a stone and fell to the ground. Sure enough, there was a bruise on his right knee, bleeding. The child started crying.
“In the field over there, they will catch a snake later.” Mo Xiaofei pointed again.
Takeko looked toward there again. The farmer suddenly yelled out, claiming to catch the snake. After a while, several nearby farmers worked together to catch a big snake.
“A group of wild geese will fly from the west. There should be 23 of them,” claimed Mo Xiaofei again.
“The two people will have a dispute immediately. Then, they will fight. The one on the left will be beaten to the ground first.”
