Yan Xuanjing placed his hands in his sleeves and didn’t feel that great.
These two sacred trees should not have been so unlucky until this extent.
It wasn’t enough that one had crashed and burned, but the other also became a one for one deal.
Yan Xuanjing hid those few moon essence and thought that he really should go and ask his father.
His father should be the clearest about what really happened.
However, if Di Xiu really followed in Di Xiu’s footsteps, the possibility of his father exploding was higher.
But exploding is just an explosion, what does that have to do with a poor and innocent little animal like him?
Yan Xuanjing glanced at the house at the side then turned around and walked to Lin Mu who had stayed at the same place.
Yan Xuanjing returned to Lin Mu, watched him keep his phone and asked, “are you going in to see?”
Lin Mu looked at the bloodstains on the outside wall, hesitated for a moment, then shook his head and asked, “so many people died, won’t Di Wu be punished?”
Yan Xuanjing said, “if it’s to eliminate evil, he won’t.”
As for the sins caused by killing, which monster in the Great Wilderness didn’t carry it? Furthermore, it was hardly ever a one-time thing. The current situation was a little more special because of Di Wu’s unstable soul.
…… Oh, and the fact that they might have to add another Di Xiu now.
But that wasn’t necessarily the case. What if there was something else that could draw moon essence?
Yan Xuanjing did not tell Lin Mu about his speculations. In terms of Lin Mu’s current strength, it didn’t benefit him to know such things.
As long as this weak little half-monster became stronger, there would be no need to consider such things.
Yan Xuanjing looked at Lin Mu, and since he didn’t intend to go in and have a look, it was time for the little brat to go home.
“Going back?” He asked.
Lin Mu made a sound of acknowledgement, and just as he turned and took a step down the mountain, he was picked up by Yan Xuanjing, who held him like he was holding a child and rose in the air.
Lin Mu was so scared that he became tense and held onto the clothes on Yan Xuanjing’s shoulders with a death grip, staring at the ground that was moving further and further away.
Yan Xuanjing patted Lin Mu on the back, “don’t like flying?”
Lin Mu forze for a long while, and returned to his senses after being blown by the high altitude wind. He looked down at the earth below, then looked up at the moon above his head, and after a while, he blinked, “it’s quite good.”
“This time, you won’t hit your head,” Yan Xuanjing said very seriously.
Lin Mu: “…… En.”
Yan Xuanjing looked at Lin Mu who seemed curious and asked, “want to learn?”
Lin Mu’s eyes lit up, “I can learn?”
“Yes,” Yan Xuanjing replied, and like a meteor, flew far away.
Da Hei, who was diligently doing work in the house, felt a shadow pass by above his head. He raised his head, and saw Yan Xuanjing’s back as he flew away with Lin Mu.
Da Hei: “……”
Wu Gui also followed along and looked up, then patted Da Hei’s head, “other people are fated, what are you looking for? Focus on your work.”
Da Hei whimpered as he felt wronged, and continued to diligently immerse himself in his work.
Yan Xuanjing flew back carrying Lin Mu.
It was the first time Lin Mu looked down at his small yard from above. From this glance, he found out that the two circles of Morning Dusk really looked like a fried egg.
Lin Mu fell silent for two seconds, silently took back his line of sight, and landed in his yard with Yan Xuanjing.
The little Ginseng ran out of the soil and reached out to hug Lin Mu’s thigh, then took a careful look at Yan Xuanjing.
Yan Xuanjing kept his aura tightly bound, until not a single bit leaked, and the little Ginseng didn’t recognise him, and only tightly held Lin Mu’s thigh, and looked up at him nervously and warily.
Lin Mu rubbed the little Ginseng’s head and looked up at Yan Xuanjing, “thank you very much.”
Yan Xuanjing shook his head and glanced at the Ginseng Baby, which scared him so much he shivered and hid behind Lin Mu.
“I have some things with me that some little monsters wanted to hand over to you,” Lin Mu said, and explained how the little monsters were seeking asylum lately.
Yan Xuanjing already knew about this. He followed Lin Mu into the house and watched as Lin Mu carried a big box out. He glanced at it, gently brushed his hand across those little things, and then watched as they flew out of the room and went in all directions.
Lin Mu paused, “ay?”
“Don’t want.” Yan Xuanjing said.
He wasn’t planning on staying here for long.
Once the coast was clear, perhaps he could consider bringing Lin Mu back to the Great Wilderness.
A Relaxed Emperor wasn’t suited for staying in the Central Plains.
He would draw other’s covetous eyes, yet there’s no one to protect him. Half-monsters were born disadvantaged, so it wasn’t safe.
Lin Mu didn’t feel anything seeing the items in the box.
After all, this originally was for Yan Xuanjing, so he could deal with them however he wanted.
Lin Mu placed the empty box to the side, looked at Yan Xuanjing then cleared his throat and said, “I, I would like your contact information.”
Yan Xuanjing was shocked, “contact information?”
Lin Mu nodded, “yes, your phone or something else.”
Yan Xuanjing didn’t bring along anything that could contact him this time, because the only one he needed to contact was the Old Turtle, and no matter where he was, the Old Turtle could find him.
The fox spirit shook his head, “don’t have.”
“Its…… there’s no phone?” Lin Mu asked.
Yan Xuanjing nodded.
Lin Mu let out a sigh of relief.
As long as it’s not him unwilling to hand over his contact information.
“You can buy one!” Lin Mu said, “it’s convenient for getting in touch.”
Yan Xuanjing said coldly and straightforwardly, “no money.”
The currency used in the Great Wilderness obviously couldn’t be used in the Central Plains.
Yan Xuanjing didn’t need to spend any money at all. Even eating wasn’t a must, so money wasn’t an issue at all.
Lin Mu completely did not think about this point, he was stunned by Yan Xuanjing’s lack of money for a long time, and asked, “then I’ll buy one for you?”
He would take it as a tuition fee.
Yan Xuanjing didn’t think that there was anything wrong in accepting what Lin Mu gave him, and since Lin Mu said this, he just simply nodded.
Lin Mu, who thought that he would be rejected, was a little happy. He slightly curled his lips to reveal two small dimples, “then, could you come again tomorrow night?”
Lin Mu sent him to the door and watched as the other party’s figure disappear. He raised his hand and rubbed his face hard, then took out his phone to dial Di Wu’s number.
Before the phone rang, Di Wu was looking at the jade that contained the fragments of Di Xiu’s soul in the eye.
— Although he could not tell where the eyes of this jade were.
Di Wu looked at all of his cigarettes which had been mercilessly crushed by Di Xiu and snorted, “hey, I told you that the marks on you is because resentful energy, not caused by my smoking. If your resentful energy hasn’t dispersed, I can’t bring you to see your son. What if it affects him? The little kiddo’s really weak.”
The jade on the table didn’t move.
Di Wu sighed, “your head’s not a head and your butt’s not a butt, why are you sulking for?”
He took out another packet of cigarettes from his pocket. Before he could light it, the jade on the table jumped up and smashed the cigarette out of his hand. The jade jumped twice on the cigarette box, smashing it flat and crushing it again.
Di Wu: “……”
Di Wu took a strawberry flavoured lollipop out of the drawer, and just as he put it into his mouth, his phone rang.
As soon as he turned his head, he saw the jade jump up, and with a ‘bam’, smashed on the screen of his mobile phone, turning the screen into a snowflake.
Di Wi looked at the jade that was going around in circles on his phone, reached out and placed him aside. He glanced at the caller ID and understood why Di Xiu was so excited.
The caller was Lin Mu.
Di Wu answered the phone, reached out a finger to hold the jade that tried to jump on his face down, pressed the speaker button and gave a lazy hello.
“Di Wu……” Lin Mu called.
“En, en. Here.” Noticing that the jade under his hand quietened down, Di Wu released his hand and said, “what’s the matter?”
Lin Mu held his phone, sat in the living room and licked his lips, “A City that…… family which had a lot of humans and monsters died, did you do it?”
“Yeah, why else would I go to A City?” Di Wu didn’t have anything to hide and openly said, “what’s the matter with me taking my own things back? You’re gonna seek justice for those guys?”
After Di Wu’s generous confession, Lin Mu didn’t know what to say for a while.
After a long silence, he whispered, “then are you still okay?”
Di Wu was shocked, and the lollipop in his mouth moved from the left to the right, then moved from the right to the front of his mouth. He sucked in a cheek and chuckled, “you’re here to worry about me?”
Lin Mu muttered, “…… otherwise?”
“I thought that you called me to scold me.” Di Wu supported his face, with the candy in his mouth, then smiled at the jade that was circling around, “don’t worry, I’m good, and will continue to be good.”
Lin Mu let out a sigh of relief, sat on the stool, and nervously picked at his own pants. He started to imply, “that, I can continue to give you my blood. You need to be careful, there’s somebody here that wants to find you.”
This implication, Di Wu understood, Lin Mu still persuaded him to kill less.
Di Wu scoffed, and felt that this father and son pair, no matter if they were big or small, were too kind and naive.
Before he could say anything, the jade beside his hand jumped up to hit Di Wu’s head, and then landed on the ground and even mercilessly smashed his toe.
Di Wu hissed, answered Lin Mu with a perfunctorily statement and hung up the phone.
Lin Mu held the phone, and gave a slight sigh of relief. A glance at the side door, and he saw Milky who had a magpie in his mouth. After a couple of seconds, he rushed up to save the magpie.
Lin Mu recognise that this magpie as the one who helped the little Ginseng wake him up those two days.
“Going out in the middle of the night to pick up a magpie?” Lin Mu rubbed Milky’s head, and brought the shivering magpie out of the door and to the little Ginseng.
Yan Xuanjing looked at Lin Mu who seemed upset, and when Lin Mu was ready to sleep, he jumped into bed again.
“Again?” Lin Mu buried his head into the dog’s fur, and happily turned off the lights.
This time, Yan Xuanjing was alert. After Lin Mu fell asleep, he made a pre-emptive strike and wrapped Lin Mu into a roll, then laid on his side safely. He bathed in the moon essence that floated in from the window, clutched his tail and slept next to Lin Mu.
The next day was the weekend. Lin Mu brought the list of materials that the little Ginseng had passed to him and went to the market to order them. Then he went to pick up a cool business-type phone and a new phone card and went phone with a bleeding wallet before dark.
By the time he returned, Yan Xuanjing was already waiting outside.
Today, he had also gone out to take a look at the passageway and send his father a letter.
The passage was very long and even monsters known for their speed would take two days to pass through.
Lin Mu looked at Yan Xuanjing, who was standing quietly outside the courtyard. His shadow was drawn long by the setting sun, and his back was straight as he watched the yard. The sunset seemed to have a layer of shadow over it, making it look particularly weak and thin.
Yan Xuanjing sensed Lin Mu’s gaze and looked back, “you’ve returned?”
Lin Mu heard this and shook his head to clear his mind.
“Sorry I came late.”
Lin Mu ran over in a few steps and quickly opened the door to let Yan Xuanjing in.
He had brought home a large pile of bags today, so he searched around a little and gave the new phone to Yan Xuanjing.
The fox spirit held a mobile phone and didn’t know how to use it.
Lin Mu then taught him the basics step by step. Yan Xuanjing learnt from a single example, and very quickly got it.
Lin Mu looked at Yan Xuanjing’s phone number and WeChat, then turned to at Yan Xuanjing, who was looking at the mobile and tapping away. He thought about the fact that they other party only had his contact information, and felt happy.
Yan Xuanjing saw Lin Mu put away his phone and placed his own down, then asked Lin Mu, “would you like to fight or learn to fly?”
Lin Mu didn’t expect to be able to choose and chose the latter without hesitation,”learn to fly!”
Yan Xuanjing nodded, took Lin Mu to the roof and pointed to the bottom, “jump down.”
Lin Mu looked at the concrete floor below.
Are you trying to hurt me?
The author has this to say:
Lin Mu: I think this fox really wants to hurt the great me.
