When he woke up, the lights in the hotel room hadn’t been turned off. Liu Zixing slept like this all night. Although it was already daytime outside with rare good weather, it was just that the lights were still on in the room where all the curtains were closed. The room was only slightly brighter after all.
Looking at the time, it was almost three o’clock in the afternoon. Liu Zixing didn’t expect that he would be so tired that he missed lunchtime; he was hungry at this time.
He quickly got up and rinsed himself. Finally, he shaved off the mustache that had grown in the past few days. There was no way to change his clothes, but he thought it would be better to wash himself up.
The wound on the ear tore open last night had coagulated. Liu Zixing looked at it and shook his head, feeling that missing the ear on this side would be more suitable.
If he had ears, he wouldn’t have been unable to listen to the mother’s and wife’s words and gambled all day long. Since he couldn’t listen to it previously, it was better not to have it. Even if he wanted to hear it now, it seemed he would not have the chance anymore.
He was thinking about what he was going to do today. He quickly took care of himself, put on his hat again, and left the hotel after checking out.
The uncle reading the newspaper at the front desk was graciously talking to a woman wearing a skirt and coat. Seeing Liu Zixing was about to check out, he was not very enthusiastic. He only asked Liu Zixing to put the money at the front desk.
Liu Zixing didn’t mind. He just glanced at this woman and felt that this woman’s beauty could be regarded as stunning. No wonder the owner of this hotel was so enthusiastic.
It was just that he used to be a gambler, so he didn’t care much about female’s beauty and didn’t even have much interest. His life had been turned upside down. It was even more impossible to raise much interest. On the contrary, he had an affinity to see through the facade of the world, like an outsider.
He pushed open the door. He only vaguely heard that the boss was still talking diligently, “Miss Heishui, today is Christmas Eve. Are you free tonight…”
Although she was going to the tallest building in the middle of the city, there was still a lot of free time for Zixing. Hence, she did not hush Windchaser. Before reaching the destination, they could stroll around.
She knew the young man’s thought; she felt he resembled the young clan member who had just evolved into demon beasts. Zixing felt that when one was born as a demon beast, they should be free and unconstrained. Although she was optimistic about Windchaser’s future, his potential had been limited. It still did not prevent the young master of the Greedy Wolf Clan from being on good terms with Windchaser.
There were countless monks and lamas on the plateau. The Greedy Wolf Clan, who was the plateau resident for a long time, would naturally interact with them. Over the years, they were also influenced by Buddhism. At the Young Master Zixing level, who was also the clan’s priest, she believed in reincarnation.
Predestined fate and impermanence existed.
“What is this?”
The bicycle stopped in front of the plaza. Windchaser was holding two portions of hot food. Zixing asked curiously.
“Fried Squid! There are sauces in it!” Windchaser gave one to Zixing.
Zixing also saw what Windchaser did just now. He took advantage of the fact that the stall’s boss was not paying attention, and he quickly took two sticks of it. It was as if he had become accustomed to such things and was skilled.
Zixing shook her head but didn’t accept it. She said calmly, “Send it back.”
Windchaser was startled, thinking that his behavior might not have escaped Zixing’s eyes. She was so beautiful and had a noble temperament. She could even casually instruct a high-level cultivation method. She should be from a wealthy family in the demon beast world.
“I will pay the money back in a few days.” Windchaser flushed, at a loss. However, his eyes appeared to be eager for it.
“The wolf is lonely and prideful. Remember that.” Zixing smiled lightly before taking it, but it seemed like a teacher teaching students.
“I will return it in double!” Windchaser did not blindly delve into guilt. He was an easy-going type. He laughed a little and ate the hot food in his hands.
Zixing smiled and said nothing because there were karmas. Today, Windchaser stole something. Since he would return it one fold another day, he would end the karma in a good way.
This little coyote was able to understand karma so quickly. It took place like it was heaven’s script. Despite him not noticing it and grasping it instinctually, it was enough to show that his inclination to Buddhism in his heart was relatively high.
Suddenly, her heart fluttered. Although the coyote bloodline was the most inferior wolf clan bloodline, Windchaser had an excellent perception of the cultivation method. After attending the Penglai Conference, she could bring him back as a student to the clan and nurture him during his journey back from the conference.
He had no further possibility to ascend beyond the greater demon beast. In the doomsday world, a greater demon beast was the second grade of combat power. For a large demon beast clan group, he was still the cornerstone. Though, there was no precedent of accepting inferior bloodlines.
Even now, the Greedy Wolf Clan on the plateau was scattered. There were a large number of inferior bloodlines as servants. Thinking about it, Zixing suddenly asked softly, “Windchaser, you said you have no father and no mother. But, how long have you settled in this city?”
“For ten years,” Windchaser replied without thinking.
Zixing asked, “Then have you ever thought about leaving this city?”
Windchaser was taken aback. He raised his head to look at Zixing and said blankly, “Leave this place?”
Zixing smiled and said, “I’m born on a plateau. It is wide. The human government rarely manages there. In addition to the sparse population, it is naturally much less scrupulous for a demon beast and more convenient to grow. Why don’t you try?”
Plateau… The mountains and water. A wolf entering such an environment was like a sea dragon entering the sea. Probably, each had their natural inclination toward a particular environment. Windchaser was already fascinated.
He knew that it was Zixing’s invitation to him. Although he didn’t know how to communicate with the female he liked, it didn’t mean that he was a coward.
Windchaser shook his head in the end. There was a trace of antiquity on Zixing. Windchaser felt it quite challenging to even speak to her. At this time, he muttered to himself, “The plateau is great, but it is not my hometown.”
There were naturally things that concerned him.
Zixing didn’t feel too disappointed, smiled slightly, and didn’t continue the topic. She just took a few bites of the fried squid on her hand and put it down.
As Greedy Wolf Clan, they were not averted to meat. However, humans added many impurities to it. So, she only intended to taste it a little.
Not far away, the young man looked like a high school student waved his arm at this moment and then walked over quickly. Beside him was another girl of the same age.
“Brother!” Windchaser suddenly stood up. It was Mo Xiaofei who came.
Mo Xiaofei looked at his respectful composure like an older kid. He couldn’t help but laughed and said, “Don’t be like that. Huh, who is this?”
“She… She is my friend.” Windchaser glanced at Zixing subconsciously but saw that her brows slightly burrowed, so he didn’t reveal her name.
“Really…” Mo Xiaofei rubbed his chin, looked at Windchaser, and showed a meaningful gaze, lengthening his word.
Windchaser said hurriedly, “Brother, it’s not what you think!”
Mo Xiaofei spread his palm and said, “I didn’t think about anything.”
“Xiaofei, is this the friend you often talk about?” The girl next to Mo Xiaofei asked curiously.
Mo Xiaofei smiled and said, “Yes, I have acquainted a few friends recently. Please let me know if you have time. By the way, Windchaser, where are you going?”
“We…” Windchaser thought for a while and finally said, “I haven’t thought about it yet.”
Mo Xiaofei continued to rub his chin, then glanced at the girl next to him. The president only smiled. “Why don’t we go to the movie together? I happen to have some questions for you too.”
“This…” Windchaser hesitated and looked at Zixing again.
Seeing Windchaser embarrassed, Zixing said generously, “You can decide.”
“All right! Brother!” Windchaser made a decision, then his face changed slightly, “I have no money.”
“Haha!” Mo Xiaofei laughed and said, “That’s not a big deal. Let’s go. It just happens that after watching the movie, we can eat together.”
As Mo Xiaofei spoke, he held Windchaser’s shoulders and walked a few steps forward, “But, it will be free activity after the meal. Windchaser, no wonder I haven’t seen you for the past few days. So, you were pursuing girls.”
“No, it is not what you think.” Windchaser still flushed.
If he weren’t acquainted with Xiaofei as his benefactor and brother for a long time, he would have rushed forward and punched Mo Xiaofei.
“Haha, forget it. I will stop mocking at you now.” Mo Xiaofei chuckled, “Anyway, let’s go on a dating competition!”
