When Windchaser heard that he could stay in the hospital’s underground training ground and train with Mo Xiaofei, he was delighted. He awakened Greedy Wolf Star, but no one had ever told him about the origin of Greedy Wolf Star.
Windchaser recognized that Greedy Wolf Star’s origin was unique. However, compared to getting the guidance of True Dragon of Divine Land, it was hard to say which was better. After all, he grew up listening to the various legends from True Dragon of Divine Land.
Despite this, Windchaser was displeased when Young Master Long warned him not to get too close to Zixing. The ego within him made him displeased, ruining the anticipation for True Dragon’s guidance in his heart.
Seemingly as if seeing through Windchaser’s mind, Long Xiruo said calmly at this time, “Don’t be dissatisfied with my prohibition of interacting with Greedy Wolf Clan Young Master. The Greedy Wolf Clan’s heritage can be traced back to ancient times. This clan is the core bloodline among the demon beast race. The Greedy Wolf Clan Young Master has the highest status in the clan. As for you…”
Long Xiruo squinted her eyes and said in a playful tone, “To put it bluntly, you are just a wandering little demon beast. Whether it is status or combat power, don’t you feel incomparable to the Greedy Wolf Clan Young Master?”
Windchaser clenched his fist. He felt that his Greedy Wolf Star heritage was exposed.
Long Xiruo said abruptly, “I know you have some secrets. You may think it will help you resolve this kind of predicament. But, the Greedy Wolf Clan is proud. Only when you are strong can you truly conquer the Greedy Wolf Clan. If you rely on foreign elements instead of yourself, you can’t convince the Greedy Wolf Clan.”
Windchaser was taken aback.
Longxi said lightly in the end, “No matter how high the status is, it is not as reliable as your strength. The future is still the future, and the present is the most real. Divine Land’s cultivators make every moment count. The demon beast clan should do the same. Your potential is good, but it’s still potential per se. When the potential has not completely turned into your capability, behave.”
After Windchaser heard it, his clenched fist was loosened.
Windchaser suddenly recalled the jade pendant Zixing had given him. She said that he could enter the plateau and seek shelter from the Greedy Wolf Clan if he faced any future trouble.
He felt that what Young Master Long said was not wrong.
He wanted to appear in front of Zixing in power and not because of his inheritance, identity, or whatsoever.
“I understand.” Windchaser took a deep breath, then bid farewell to Long Xiruo, saying that he had to go home and pack up. After that, he notified his decision to stay directly in the underground training ground, leaving only when he ended his cultivation journey!
Looking at Windchaser’s firm gaze, Long Xiruo raised her hand, wanting to interrupt, and said something. But, she held back in the end. After watching Windchaser finally push the door out and shut the door respectfully, she put down her hand that was held up weakly.
I didn’t allow you to stay in my place. Hey…
“Forget it. It’s better to put this guy under my observation than to let him stroll in the city.” Long Xiruo muttered, “Why did Windchaser’s Greedy Wolf Star suddenly awaken? It’s weird.”
Hot Pot Restaurant.
Ren Ziling ordered a table full of beef and mutton like a starving ghost.
She said this was the correct way to enjoy hot pot. Of course, Li Zi could eat more, but she was much more elegant when she ate even though her hand didn’t stop stuffing food into her mouth.
The hot pot restaurant was not a high-class place. On the contrary, this place was noisy, with steam engulfing each table. The chatters were endless, like a hustle and bustle city.
Luo Qiu hadn’t been with Li Zi at the dining table for a while. The last time should be before Golden Week. That time, it was to welcome Lu Yiyun, who stayed in a remote seaside village and came over to study.
Li Zi stopped after eating halfway as if remembering something. She took out three beautifully packaged gifts separately from her backpack and sent them to Luo Qiu, You Ye, and Ren Ziling.
Her reason was simple, to ride along with the festival’s hype.
Ren Ziling probably did not expect to receive a gift from Li Zi on this occasion. She was about to stuff a piece of beef into her mouth with chopsticks, but she quickly stopped and wiped her mouth. Then, she opened up the gift curiously on the spot.
It was a necklace. The pendant was a small droplet-shaped mineral. It could be a crystal, but it also seemed to be a diamond. Of course, Ren Ziling didn’t think that Li Zi could afford a diamond with her meager salary. The salary was only enough for daily expenses.
When this pendant entered Ren Ziling’s grasp, it gave off a refreshing and comfortable feeling.
The air in this hot pot restaurant was turbid and sultry. Hence, it amplified the comfort of the pendant.
It probably wasn’t an average product. Ren Ziling was knowledgeable, but she wasn’t confident about what the gift was. She couldn’t help but be amazed. Luo Qiu and You Ye opened their gifts as well. They were all jewelry made of droplet-shaped crystals.
You Ye had a small bracelet. As for Luo Qiu, it was a pocket watch inlaid with droplet-sized crystal.
“Li Zi, these gifts are not cheap, right?”
These items were obviously not cheap. Therefore, Ren Ziling was reluctant to accept the gift.
Li Zi was Ren Ziling’s assistant. She only took care of Li Zi with the motive of helping the newcomer. She didn’t intend to ask for anything. Besides, Li Zi had been with her for more than half a year. Their relationship gradually deepened. At this time, she was even more reluctant to make Li Zi spend.
“The gifts? It doesn’t cost much.” Li Zi smiled and picked up her chopsticks again, “I found them in my hometown. When I was a kid, I ran up the mountains, and many of these crystals were there. I dug a large piece before. But then the biggest one was given away already.”
Ren Ziling was taken aback, obviously not very satisfied with this explanation.
This droplet-shaped crystal pendant was precious, but it was round and smooth like jade and had a diamond-like luster. She became more curious and looked at Luo Qiu and You Ye, “Do you two recognize the crystal? What is it?”
The maid shook her head and said she didn’t recognize these crystals but thanked Li Zi for the gift.
Luo Qiu knew what it was but shook his head.
“Where is your hometown? How come there are so many weird crystals there?” Ren Ziling was a little bit fond of this necklace.
When Ren Zilling mixed the sauce for herself, she made it too spicy. She felt like her body was boiling. At this time, holding the necklace, the heaty feeling subsided a lot. In the end, she found the gift more and more magical. It could probably contend with the magical drug that aroused Ma Houde for the whole night back on the ship.
“En, it’s a small village in the north.” Li Zi said casually, “Except for the frequent snow, there is nothing special.”
Ren Ziling recalled that Li Zi’s resume stated where she came from, and it was indeed a small city in the Northeast. But she always felt that that place wasn’t Li Zi’s actual birthplace. It was just that Li Zi didn’t seem to want to disclose more about that place, so it wasn’t quite appropriate for her to explore further.
Those at the dining table were all relatives and friends, not those who need to be interviewed for work purposes. She had a clear line between public and private matters.
