Chapter 22 – Lin Mu: I think this fox really wants to hurt the great me.


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.

Lin Mu was stunned, then let of out slight sigh of relief then shook his head, “it’s okay, I…… still want to go up and see.”

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.

Yan Xuanjing turned to look at the little Relaxed Emperor who could attract moon essence, and when Lin Mu looked over, he subconsciously hid those moon essence in his sleeve.

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.

Before, in this house, there should have been something that could attract moon essence.</p
As a dog monster, Da Hei had been called over. Lin Mu stood at the same spot, staring at the blood stains on the walls of the house and the tire marks on the soil that hadn’t vanished yet. He took out his phone and searched his contact list for Di Wu’s number, edited the information and changed Di Wu’s name to No. 1.

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.”

Yan Xuanjing looked at the shocked Lin Mu, paused, then said, “you can continue thinking.”

Lin Mu: “……”

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.”

So this should have been left here before.

“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: “……”

Damnit.

Does this fox spirit have some problems!

Yan Xuanjing looked at the shocked Lin Mu, paused, then said, “you can continue thinking.”

Lin Mu: “……”

Jealous!

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.

Lin Mu bit his lips and gave a small smile to Yan Xuanjing, “thank you.”

Yan Xuanjing nodded his head slightly and turned to look at the house in front of him and stopped.

“Ghost energy.” Yan Xuanjing looked around slowly, and said calmly, “there’s a lot of them.”

Da Hei heard him, and his expression became solemn as he concentrated on looking around him.

The faces of several people and Wu Gui who were at the gates of the house had gloomy expressions, and seeing Yan Xuanjing heading their way, they raised their voice, “a group of people were killed by fierce ghosts!”

Yan Xuanjing wasn’t surprised, but it was just that the death of someone bitten to death by firece ghosts wasn’t a good sigh. He hesistated for the moment, and stopped the little Relaxed Emperor and didn’t let him go.

Lin Mu, who was stopped, paid more attention to the method of death. He turned to look at Da Hei and asked, “what’s the matter with being bitten to death by firece ghosts?”

Lin Mu wavered, and he looked a little distracted.

What’s going on!

Does this fox spirit have some problems!

Yan Xuanjing looked at the shocked Lin Mu, paused, then said, “you can continue thinking.”

Lin Mu: “……”

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.

Yan Xuanjing turned to look at the little Relaxed Emperor who could attract moon essence, and when Lin Mu looked over, he subconsciously hid those moon essence in his sleeve.

Before, in this house, there should have been something that could attract moon essence.

Such as Di Xiu.

Yan Xuanjing thought about Lin Mu, who assumed his father had died because he had never met him before, and thought about Di Wu, who was torn into pieces, and felt worse.

Lin Mu bit his lips and gave a small smile to Yan Xuanjing, “thank you.”

Yan Xuanjing nodded his head slightly and turned to look at the house in front of him and stopped.

“Ghost energy.” Yan Xuanjing looked around slowly, and said calmly, “there’s a lot of them.”

Da Hei heard him, and his expression became solemn as he concentrated on looking around him.

The faces of several people and Wu Gui who were at the gates of the house had gloomy expressions, and seeing Yan Xuanjing heading their way, they raised their voice, “a group of people were killed by fierce ghosts!”

Yan Xuanjing wasn’t surprised, but it was just that the death of someone bitten to death by firece ghosts wasn’t a good sigh. He hesistated for the moment, and stopped the little Relaxed Emperor and didn’t let him go.

Lin Mu, who was stopped, paid more attention to the method of death. He turned to look at Da Hei and asked, “what’s the matter with being bitten to death by firece ghosts?”

Lin Mu wavered, and he looked a little distracted.

What’s going on!

Does this fox spirit have some problems!

Yan Xuanjing looked at the shocked Lin Mu, paused, then said, “you can continue thinking.”

Lin Mu: “……”

I’m sure this fox must have some problem.

Yan Xuanjing hugged Lin Mu like a baby.

Although theis was the first time he took care of others, he felt that he was quite considerate.

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.

please read this at “the potato room (dot) com”

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?”

Lin Mu jolted, he followed Da Hei’s line of sight and lowered his head to look at Yan Xuanjing holding his hand, and it was only then he realised it, and his mind started rining, and hesistated for a moment between withdrawing his hand and continuing to hold it, and chose the latter.

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?”

Before, in this house, there should have been something that could attract moon essence./p
“Okay.” Yan Xuanjing nodded, then stood up and said goodbye to Lin Mu.

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.

Lin Mu jolted, he followed Da Hei’s line of sight and lowered his head to look at Yan Xuanjing holding his hand, and it was only then he realised it, and his mind started rining, and hesistated for a moment between withdrawing his hand and continuing to hold it, and chose the latter.

Since the other party took the initiative to hold, it would be embarassing to pull back.

Lin Mu thought with great confidence.

Yan Xuanjing didn’t respond to Da Hei.

Lin Mu thought for a bit and said to Da Hei, “not going?”

Da Hei returned to his senses, looked at Lin Mu, then looked at Yan Xuanjing and the the hands that the both of them were holding, wiped his face, “go!”

The closer they got to the house, the stronger the smell.

Lin Mu’s brows furrowed even greater, Yan Xuanjing glanced at him, flicked his fingers, and Lin Mu realised that the unpleasant smell had disappeared completely.

Just as the fox spirit finished, he saw a glimmer of light, and then he released Lin Mu’s hand and went to the side of the house, raising his hand a few moon essence that weren’t willing to land on the the yard, that were being blown by the wind.

Moon essence didn’t work as well for human beings as they did for monsters, but the fact that it would keep the land cultivated would be enough for the humans to benefit for generations.

But Emperor’s Shelter’s talent of defending against bad omens and violence wasn’t capable of attracting moon essence.

The house, now a site of carnage, would not attract the moon essence.

So this should have been left here before.

Yan Xuanjing turned to look at the little Relaxed Emperor who could attract moon essence, and when Lin Mu looked over, he subconsciously hid those moon essence in his sleeve.

Before, in this house, there should have been something that could attract moon essence.

Such as Di Xiu.

Yan Xuanjing thought about Lin Mu, who assumed his father had died because he had never met him before, and thought about Di Wu, who was torn into pieces, and felt worse.

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.

Yan Xuanjing hugged Lin Mu like a baby.

Although theis was the first time he took care of others, he felt that he was quite considerate.

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.

see this = scrambled version on aggregator site

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.

“……”

Holy shit!

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?”

What’s going on!

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?”

Yan Xuanjing didn’t respond to Da Hei.

Lin Mu thought for a bit and said to Da Hei, “not going?”

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.

Lin Mu didn’t understand how grudges were dealt with in the world of monsters, he just felt that after Di Wu took his blood, he killed more than twenty people and more than sixty monsters, which made him a little confused.

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.

Yan Xuanjing wasn’t surprised, but it was just that the death of someone bitten to death by firece ghosts wasn’t a good sigh. He hesistated for the moment, and stopped the little Relaxed Emperor and didn’t let him go.

Lin Mu, who was stopped, paid more attention to the method of death. He turned to look at Da Hei and asked, “what’s the matter with being bitten to death by firece ghosts?”

Lin Mu wavered, and he looked a little distracted.

What’s going on!

Does this fox spirit have some problems!

Yan Xuanjing looked at the shocked Lin Mu, paused, then said, “you can continue thinking.”

Lin Mu: “……”

I’m sure this fox must have some problem.

Yan Xuanjing hugged Lin Mu like a baby.

Although theis was the first time he took care of others, he felt that he was quite considerate.

he mountain road wasn’t easy to walk on, and the little half-monster was really weak, what if he fell and broke his neck or something?

The nine-tailed fox thought so, and then Lin Mu, whom he was holding, made a pained groaned and bent down, covering his head.

Yan Xuanjing looked up at Lin Mu, whom he was holding.

Lin Mu looked down at Yan Xuanjing, who was holding him.

Above their heads, the thick branch that Lin Mu had just hit was still swinging gently.

Yan Xuanjing: “……”

Lin Mu: “……”

Yan Xuanjing silently placed Lin Mu, who was rubbing his head, down.

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.

please read this at ‘thepot atoroom (.) com’

“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.

Yan Xuanjing turned to look at the little Relaxed Emperor who could attract moon essence, and when Lin Mu looked over, he subconsciously hid those moon essence in his sleeve.

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.

Yan Xuanjing turned to look at the little Relaxed Emperor who could attract moon essence, and when Lin Mu looked over, he subconsciously hid those moon essence in his sleeve.

“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.

see this? go to ‘thepot atoroom (.) com’ to read the unscrambled version

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?”

he mountain road wasn’t easy to walk on, and the little half-monster was really weak, what if he fell and broke his neck or something?

Lin Mu made a light hiss, rubbed his head whihc had just ran into a branch, watched as Yan Xuanjing raised in hand, and broke the branch which was the size of an adult man’s arms with a ‘snap’.

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.

Di Wu: Balding.jpg


The translator has this to add:

    Di Xiu’s little antics towards Di Wu is really cute and funny. XD
    TBH I thought Di Xiu had an intact soul. Turns out his soul was fragmented and divided by greedy creatures alike. Dem. His soul was divided and his body also? 🙁
