“Miss Tsukihime, the entourage has arranged a place to rest. If you have any needs, please give us your command.”
The Kondo family closed the door. Only Zixing was left in the room. She frowned, her face filled with worry. Is this the sixth or seven tries?
Her memory became fuzzy. The confusion came from the constant rebirth loop on the first day at Unripe Rice Village.
Only less than ten loops, Zixing felt impatient. She had to meditate on some scriptures to stabilize her mood.
She admired Master Long’s disciple, who was stuck in the time reset loop that spanned a year. When she encountered Mo Xiaofei, he was still alerted. How tough is Mo Xiaofei’s spirit?
After reading a paragraph of Heart Sutra, Zixing calmed down her emotions. Before this reset, she used the secret technique on Haru Narukami’s body, but the effect was minimal. So this time, she planned to take a risk.
It was still in the dungeon. Her goal wasn’t looking for Haru Narukami but the secrets of Nagato’s house. Mo Xiaofei once mentioned to her that there were terrifying things and places that should be averted.
As always, Zixing let her handmaid replace her, and then she infiltrated into the dungeon. The whole process went smoothly, but Zixing didn’t seem to be happy about it.
Doing one thing repeatedly wouldn’t bring joy.
This time, she quickly came to the opposite end of the dungeon she had never been to before. There were mechanisms around, but obviously, the guy who created it was not a master in crafting mechanisms. Zixing didn’t have too much trouble finding the way in opening it.
The stone door slowly opened. A cyan mist was slowly drifting in the air behind the stone door. The cyan demon beast power!
The nebulized cyan demon beast power had materialized!
Zixing frowned. This demon beast’s power required long years of accumulation in a sealed place to manifest.
In this space behind the stone door, there were two other small rooms in addition to a square pool in front. Zixing glanced at the square pool before heading directly to the other small room within.
There were a lot of gold and silver treasures in addition to worldly valuables stored in one room. This seemed like the Nagato family’s treasure room. Zixing didn’t take a closer look but went directly to another room.
There were bookshelves full of books in various volumes. Zixing’s eyes lit up suddenly, flipping through the names of these volumes one by one. In the end, she picked one and read it carefully.
It was the battle record between the Nagato family and the demon beast fox. There were also records of the demon beast fox’s history.
“Yu Sanniang was born in Yan Wuyue. But her mother…” Zixing opened the volume quickly. “It seems that Yu Sanniang’s mother is probably from the Divine Land’s Celestial Fox clan, but she somehow has entered the fragment piece at this time. There’s a key to the Penglai Gate mentioned in the inscription on the pedestal’s stone carving situated in Unripe Rice Village, but the Nagato family’s record doesn’t mention it.”
Zixing quickly finished reading it and continued to the next book. But out of the resources here, most of them were Nagato family’s study on the demon beast fox’s heart. Unfortunately, it didn’t contribute anything to the Penglai mystery Yu Sanniang’s mother hid.
A pity flashed in Zixing’s eyes. It seemed outside of confronting the fox demon beast which Yu Sanniang had given birth to, Zixing would have no way of finding out more.
Zixing shook her head. When she was about to exit through the same way she came, she kicked a wooden box placed under the bookshelf. Zixing frowned. She opened the wooden box out of curiosity and took a look at what might be inside.
Unexpectedly, when the wooden box was opened, a hint of surprise flashed in Zixing’s eyes. This wooden box was also filled with a handbook.
“This is the Divine Land’s text! This is the thing left by the mother of the fox demon beast, Yu Sanniang!”
Yu Sanniang had probably built this dungeon. This was the place for her to store valuables. It was just that she was killed under a siege. The team naturally looted all her collections. Back then, the Nagato family was weak. In the end, only some useless ancient books were distributed to them.
The Kondo family’s reward to the Nagato family to be the Unripe Rice Village’s master was quite unfair. The fundamental reason for the reward was to command the Nagato family to guard this place. Back then, the Nagato family was weak. In the face of the arrangement of the master, the family could only obey resignedly.
As the Greedy Wolf Clan’s young master, Zixing inherited many knowledge and skills from ancient times. She was no stranger to the Divine Land’s ancient writings. She disregarded the dust accumulated on the ground for many years and sat directly on the ground. Then, she grabbed a book and read her harvests carefully again.
“I see. In the main world, Yu Sanniang has reached the point of ‘The Five Declines of Heavenly Connection,’ where her vigor was on the verge of dissipating. Hence, she had no choice but to escape into the fragmented world, avoid the rules of the main world, and continue her life.”
“Cyan Jade Ruyi Scepter.”
Suddenly, in one ancient book, an unknown thin animal skin slowly fell from the book under Zixing’s page flipping. Zixing picked it up curiously. It sparked a huge change in her expression.
Zixing opened her eyes incredibly, “This is Penglai’s coordinates! Does Penglai really exist?!”
Zixing took a deep breath, knowing that Divine Land carried the legend of Penglai. Legend says that cultivators had the possibility of Immortal Ascension if they managed to find Penglai. For the demon beasts, they could get anything they wanted in Penglai. Unfortunately, there was no news of Penglai every time during the Penglai Conference in Mount Tai for thousands of years.
If the location recorded on this map were correct, then Penglai would no longer be an illusory legend!
Facing this kind of news that was like a blockbuster for Divine Land’s extraordinary being circle, Zixing couldn’t even calm down at this moment. She did not expect to encounter such a fate-changing event in this Yan Wuyue World!
Without any hesitation, Zixing directly rolled up the hidden map and planned to take it away. But at this moment, a dizzy feeling invaded Zixing. She felt as if she was being pulled out by something. It was a feeling of her soul being separated from the body, making her complexion turned ugly.
“What’s going on? This is completely different from the feeling during the reset loop.”
Zixing didn’t have time to think about it. Instead, she stared at the animal skin map in front of her. Her only desire now was to record this map thoroughly in her mind before she lost consciousness.
But, the pulling force was getting stronger and stronger!
“Hold on for a while. Just hold on for a while. Yes!”
Zixing closed her eyes, and Tsukihime Kondo’s body fell directly to the ground.
On the big screen of the theater room, with rippling waves appearing, the club’s new boss Luo Qiu walked out with a smile on his face.
This was where they first entered the Yan Wuyue World through movies.
“Master, is it done?” The maid stepped up to ask.
Luo Qiu said, “It’s almost done. It doesn’t make much sense for us to stay. Just wait with peace of mind. Miss Witch’s story will have an ending.”
While speaking, Boss Luo glanced at the audience in the front seat.
The audience gradually recovered from being in a daze. Their eyes became clear. Luo Qiu nodded and whispered, “Mr. Eric does set his appropriate boundary.”
“Otherwise, he wouldn’t be able to live until now.” You Ye smiled slightly.
Luo Qiu wasn’t fond of commenting on the customers’ flaws and merits.
At this time, the lights in the theater room suddenly lit up. Boss Luo said, “Let’s go. It took quite some time to watch this movie.”
Of course, the maid understood what the time meant. Before “watching” the movie, they were on the way to give the customers Christmas presents.
The three of them left directly in front of the sober audience without attracting any attention.
After leaving the movie theater, Luo Qiu’s cell phone rang suddenly, and he glanced at it. It was Ren Ziling who called.
Luo Qiu was slightly surprised after listening to Ren Ziling’s nagging on the other end of the phone and curiously asked, “Christmas dinner? Aren’t you working overtime tonight?”
