“Chuanxiong, safflower, rehmannia…”
Windchaser lowered his head and recited the names of the medicinal materials that Zixing had written for him in front of the master in the Traditional Chinese Pharmacy. Of course, it was impossible for him to know exactly what the effects of these medicinal materials were. However, if Zixing could write these medicinal materials out, she should be familiar with medical properties.
Soon after, he left the Traditional Chinese Pharmacy and rushed to another place. A river bank in Riverside Park. This was what Zixing requested him to do, asking him to check the place out. He might probably meet some of her friends there.
Use this as a token of recognition.
Windchaser looked at the Pisces Jade Pendant whichZixing had given him. He was a little distracted. Did Zixing keep this item closely to her…? Despite it being in my grasp for some time, I could still sense the warmth of Zixing’s body on it.
Seemingly her smell too.
The approaching car honked, which made Windchaser wake up from this state of distraction. He shook his head vigorously, and then hurriedly moved toward the Riverside Park.
At a long-abandoned wooden house situated in the bamboo forest occupying a mountain… Nero fell directly on the ground since opening the door and entering. Once she managed to open her eyes, she immediately sat up.
She stretched her neck, producing bones crackling sounds. Nero habitually took out a piece of bubble gum and put it in her mouth to chew. Then, she started checking the time on her phone.
I was unconscious for the entire day.
“Fortunately, the boss can send me back here, otherwise…” Nero got up and continued to move her muscles and bones.
She felt rather insecure to be unconscious in the outside world rather than this place, even if it was a club with a higher safety rating.
That kind of place despite being safe, it did not give people any sense of security.
Nero put the Yama Blade on a small wooden table in the wooden house, then pushed open the secret door hidden in the living room, and walked into the quiet room inside.
Her parents stayed hidden in this place since the past. She was also born in this place. At least, she could still remember some bits and pieces of this place now. Nero, who had to make herself optimistic, lowered her head and smiled. In general, she still had a relatively complete childhood.
In the quiet room, Nero sat directly on the ground, and took out a few things. One was the box that the club got to preserve the quality of the soul, while the other was used to catch the mutated ‘Prometheus’ iron whistle.
On the way to track the iron whistle, Nero ran into the Greedy Wolf Clan from the plateau. At this time, next to the little compass used for tracking was the so-called Greedy Wolf Clan’s secret treasure.
A black bead but it didn’t look like a jade material. There was no reaction when held in hand, but the Greedy Wolf Clan attached so much importance to it. It probably needed a special procedure from the Greedy Wolf Clan member to catalyze it.
Speaking of it, since she had obtained this item, would the boss accept it as a transaction fee?
She seemed to be catching some strange attention again. Her eyes narrowed together.
Soon after, Nero found some ingredients around the bamboo forest. Then, she prepared a simple dinner here alone.
In the evening, Nero closed the door, humming a song, and finally whispered to the empty cabin, “I’m out!”
It was just like the past. The difference was only one sentence: Mom and Dad, I’m out!
If it was the past
She toiled away and finally left this place.
Windchaser quickly walked around the river bank in Riverside Park, and then hurried back to his home on the roof of the building.
In the past two days, he had not even contacted Cheese and Nini, just for the time being not to disclose Zixing’s matters. He didn’t intend to hide it on purpose, but he just felt that the fewer people who knew Zixing, the better it would be. It was the vigilance he cultivated after wandering in the street.
After boiling these medicinal materials into medicine with the simple tools placed here, she drank the syrup. She couldn’t get out of bed and walk around immediately, but her complexion improved.
Watching Zixing meditate, the surrounding spiritual qi began to converge into her body. Windchaser couldn’t help being a little envious. In this case, it should be Zixing’s unique cultivation method. For the demon beasts in the world, due to the rapid decline, there were already many demon beasts who could not use the high-efficiency cultivation methods during the ancient times.
Most of them were some superficial breathing exercises. Some even rely on instinct to absorb the spiritual qi from the world. For example, Windchaser himself used the superficial method of breathing exercise that he discovered by himself.
Zixing’s cultivation method seemed efficient, probably only the ancient demon beast family with inheritance would have it, or perhaps a well-established elder.
Even though Windchased had a very powerful power previously, that power was taken away by the boss alongside the Demon Wolf Spirit. Right now, he was ordinary as ever.
A noble-born demon beast clan like Zixing, probably would not have any special feeling for the most common little coyote like him.
“Is there anything on my face?” Zixing suddenly opened her eyes, and found Windchaser staring at her at this time. She asked in suspicion.
“No!” Windchaser hurriedly waved his hands, “I’m just seeing how quickly you absorb spiritual qi! It’s awesome!”
Zixing smiled slightly, then she had an idea. She said softly, “Windchaser, can you absorb spiritual qi for once and let me see it?”
“Huh? Now?” Windchaser was taken aback.
“Can you?” Zixing asked softly.
“Sure!” Windchaser shook his head quickly, sitting cross-legged awkwardly. He straightened his back, but said in embarrassment, “But, my efficiency is poor. I’m afraid it will only be a joke to you.”
With that said, Windchaser stopped hesitating, so he closed his eyes. In fact, night time should be the best time to absorb spiritual qi. During the day, the initially unsatisfactory effect became much worse.
Zixing watched silently, feeling the concentration changes of spiritual qi around Windchaser. She finally spoke slowly, “Windchaser, listen, I only say it once. It depends on you for how much you can master it… Take it as my gratitude for saving me. It’s a great method in my clan. I hope it can be of some help to you.”
Some of Windchaser’s incomprehensible paragraphs seemed to have been carved into his mind. He couldn’t understand a single word. Somehow, as Zixing incarnated the method, the spiritual qi that gathered slowly had become active at once.
His body, even without his own control, had naturally undergone a certain change. This change was indeed invisible from the outside.
With Zixing’s chanting proceeded, Windchaser gradually entered a thoughtless state.
Seeing the changes in the spiritual qi flow, Zixing’s eyes lit up after reciting the method. Of course, she couldn’t reveal the important methods of the Greedy Wolf Clan casually. After all, he had saved her life. So, she gave her the best method she could think of.
In fact, it could be regarded as a simplified version of a certain great technique in the Greedy Wolf Clan’s inheritance. If it was placed in the world of demon beasts outside today, many demon beasts in the wild would fight for it intensely.
“Unexpectedly, an ordinary coyote bloodline has such a good grasp…” Zixing’s astonishment gradually grew, but at last she sighed, “Unfortunately, with such a good comprehension, he has the coyote bloodline…”
How can it be changed?
Zixing shook her head. Destiny.. Who could challenge it?
