On the way to the cinema, Mo Xiaofei and Windchaser walked ahead while Zixing and the class president followed behind. This class president was a gentle person. Zixing was the Greedy Wolf Clan Young Master. Naturally, there was no barrier in conversation. They chatted indiscriminately.
“Brother, don’t you need to cultivate today?” asked Windchaser curiously.
In the past, Mo Xiaofei went back home to cultivate after class, but today he didn’t. Instead, he went out shopping in his school uniform.
Mo Xiaofei said bitterly, “I requested for one week of leave in advance. Otherwise, I might not be able to get out.”
They said that the entire demon beast world wanted the qualification to get the True Dragon of Divine Land’s cultivation guidance and be acknowledged as their student. Windchaser naturally thought so too, but he was not as lucky as Mo Xiaofei, “Hmm…Master Long is indeed a bit strict. But, I haven’t seen Master Long much recently. How is she?”
Long Xiruo told Mo Xiaofei not to disclose what she was doing now. Mo Xiaofei knew the stake involved, so naturally, he wouldn’t say much, “She is doing fine, probably went out to gather medicine. It will take a while for her to return. Young Master Long has been guiding me recently.”
“Oh.” Windchaser nodded. He knew Young Master Long with one encounter in the past, but he didn’t know her origin. “By the way, brother, you just said you have something to ask me. What is it? ”
Mo Xiaofei took the Wolf Warrior’s soul painter’s painting from the bag and said resignedly, “You… have you seen the person on this painting recently? The teacher asked me to find this person, taking it for cultivation practice.”
Windchaser took the painting and looked at it seriously. He was keen to help Mo Xiaofei.
Mo Xiaofei looked at the sky, “Uh…you took it upside down.”
Windchaser, “This painting is great and unique. Sorry, brother, I haven’t seen this person in the past, but I will pay more attention!”
Mo Xiaofei shook his head, put the painting away, and said with a smile, “Well, if you have any news, please let me know. It doesn’t matter if there is no news.”
These days at night, Mo Xiaofei roamed quietly in the city’s night sky. He was exhausted every night to achieve his goal. Yet, he still couldn’t find a clue related to the Greedy Wolf Clan Young Master in this painting. If it weren’t for the two warriors in the hospital who insisted, claiming that they could sense that the young master was in this city despite being unable to pinpoint the coordinate, Mo Xiaofei would feel like giving up.
“Then brother, do you have any other information about this person, for example, his name?” Windchaser asked.
Mo Xiaofei thought for a while, then shook his head. This involved the Greedy Wolf Clan’s internal affairs. It might involve internal strife. In his opinion, Windchaser was just a child. Despite Windchaser’s older age, it was still not suitable for Windchaser to get involved. “The teacher only asked me to look for this person.”
Windchaser had been walking in the city all the time. Mo Xiaofei was trying his luck. He wasn’t too serious about the search at the moment.
“Let’s queue up and buy the tickets. You all should wait here.” Mo Xiaofei smiled, patted Windchaser on the shoulder, and asked Windchaser to stay put.
Zixing only had time to talk to Windchaser alone at this time. She looked at Windchaser and frowned, “These two human beings are your friends?”
Windchaser did not hear the faint displeasure in Zixing’s words and said casually, “Yes! Brother Mo Xiaofei is the most respected person in my life! If it weren’t for him, I would have died long ago! A life-saving grace is like a new parent !”
Zixing finally frowned, “You mean he already knows your identity as a demon beast? This human?”
Windchaser said matter-of-factly, “Yes, what’s so weird about it? Brother Xiaofei is still Master Long’s disciple. Hush, don’t tell this to others. Not many people know this!”
Naturally, Long Xiruo did not admit him as a disciple. However, in Windchaser’s view, there seemed to be no difference between student and disciple.
However, Zixing thought otherwise.
What did Master Long’s existence mean? It was the Divine Land’s most powerful true dragon – the apex of the demon beast world. It set the rules for the demon beast world and the human world. Demon beasts dared not follow it. Even in those remote places that were not being affected heavily by the central forces, the demon beast dared to do something illegal, but only sneakily in a limit.
Master Long’s disciple. The noble status was beyond her status as the Greedy Wolf Can Young Master.
But, the status holder was a human being. Demon beast clan’s Master Dragon had accepted a human disciple. Even with Zixing’s knowledge, she was stunned at this time.
She naturally had a method of observing facial expressions. It was apparent that Windchaser’s words were not a lie. Although she still had a lot of disbelief in her heart with many unknown mysteries involved, she did not dare to ask too many questions when it involved Longjun’s private affairs.
She was the demon beast clan’s leader and a priest. Naturally, she was more aware of the demon beast class distinction more than ordinary demon beasts.
It was just that Master Long’s disciple suddenly appeared. Is it a coincidence?
With that said, she utilized Greedy Wolf Descend on that day, exposing Greedy Wolf Star. This commotion would attract Master Long’s attention. That master probably discovered her, so he let this disciple inspect it.
It was just that she was severely injured and devolved to her current state. Yin Greedy Wolf was unresponsive now. Even Master Long might not be able to realize it for a while. It could be her chance to get in contact with Master Long’s disciple.
She didn’t want to involve the True Dragon of Divine Land in this matter. It would tarnish Greedy Wolf Clan’s reputation after all. But, since she ran into the True Dragon, she would have to take advantage of it.
“Huh… So close. We almost ran out of empty seats.” Mo Xiaofei and the class president squeezed out of the crowd and handed the ticket to Windchaser.
Windchaser took it with one hand.
However, Zixing was a little more reserved. She took it with both hands from Mo Xiaofei and said thoughtfully, “Sir Mo, I am grateful for the ticket!”
“What?” Mo Xiaofei was taken aback, “Sir…? Please don’t act like our Windchaser. Well, let’s not dawdle on this. We should get in soon. It’s about to start!”
Zixing nodded. If it was a demon beast, it could still sense the demon beast’s power intensity. If it was a cultivating fellow of Divine Land, he could also distinguish the other’s power. The question was, Mo Xiaofei did not have demon beast power nor the Taoist power. How could he be Master Long’s disciple?
“It’s impossible for others to predict what the master does.” Zixing shook her head slightly. She followed the others and walked into the movie theater silently.
Speaking of which, she had no shortage of clothes and food with a worry-free life as the Greedy Wolf Clan’s young master. Yet, it was her first experience of the human world’s leisure.
“By the way, brother, what movie are we watching?”
“Pen Immortal!” Mo Xiaofei smiled and said, “Thriller that has been popular recently!”
The crime was murder, disturbing public places, creating panic, and so on. Finally, he was sentenced to death and was now under a suspended sentence.
They said that the Legal Aid Bureau lawyer wanted to use the prisoner’s mental problem as a reason, but the prisoner voluntarily admitted the crime.
Death-sentenced inmates on reprieve were naturally different from the cells in which ordinary prisoners live. Most prisoners waiting for the death sentence were often irritable, emotional, or depressed. But, a death-sentenced inmate in a particular cell was much calmer than others.
He was a death-sentenced prisoner who was blind. They said he killed his girlfriend and hid her corpse at home.
No one cared about a death row inmate. Besides, this guy was more like a lunatic because he would always be in the cell by himself. He opened his hands and danced by himself, humming an unknown tune.
It was as if his palm was holding a beloved woman.
He had most likely gone mad.
The same happened that day. The patrolling guards were used to it. The guards plan to get off work early to meet with their girlfriends and then spend an unforgettable Spring Festival’s night.
Therefore, the prison guard did not notice a beautifully packaged box arrived at the death row mad inmate’s bed.
Guo Yushuo hummed and stopped, smiled slightly. He then sat down by the bed, touching the wall.
He seemed to touch something with his hand. After fumbling it a few times, it should be something like a box. It was a little light. He continued to explore it. It looked like a packaging box, still tied with a ribbon.
He was a little baffled, so he shook it gently with his hand. It seemed to be empty with nothing inside, so he opened it.
He couldn’t see anything, but if he had a vision, he would know that a bright light flashed by the moment the gift box was opened.
In the end, Guo Yushuo smelled a strong fragrance.
The fragrance of fish-scented eggplant. The fragrance engraved deep in his memory.
He knelt on the ground, facing the little sky, toward the position of the bars he knew, and kowtowed. He held a place of warm and fragrant eggplant, fascinated.
