Chapter 108: The Demon Girl 17
T/N I never knew self-quarantine all by myself is hard~ Last quarantine, I stayed with my family, but I went back to university to settle my thesis correction last month and stuck here. CMCO started 10 days ago and students were not allowed to venture out of the university compound even if they were postgrad… I’m sad and a bit stressful with the correction also….
BTW, Thank you K-san for the ko-fi. I am not sure for which novel was it intended to, but thank you very much~
In the lush valley, two young girls have been chasing the butterflies in the forest——
“A’ Lan, hurry up! There is a beautiful butterfly here!”
“Ah! A’ Man! You caught it. You are so amazing!”
A black swallowtail butterfly was carefully circled between the two hands by the girl. The beautiful butterfly flapping wings appeared as if it could fly out from the girl’s palm at any time. However, at this time, it seemed to be attracted by the girl’s white palms as it lingered and refused to fly away.
The young Ye Lan ran to A’ Man’s side with a look of excitement: “It’s so beautiful, ah! A’ Man, it seems to like you very much!”
Aman blinked, then opened her palms flat: “Butterfly, ah, butterfly. Although I like you too, but…you and I are from two different worlds. So, you have to go back to your world.”
The young girl’s tender and sweet voice slowly sounded. As if understanding the young girl’s words, the black swallowtail butterfly danced lightly and gracefully on the girl’s palm before it stirred its wings to fly.
At this moment, a strange cold wind blew, and a red-figure suddenly appeared beside the two girls——
When A’ Man and Ye Lan saw the woman in red with a half-mask, they immediately called out respectfully.
The woman in red raised her eyebrows slightly and then raised her hand. The swallowtail butterfly that had just flown away appeared in her palm. At this moment, there seemed to be an invisible net on her hand. It covered the body of the butterfly, letting it unable to fly no matter how hard it struggles.
“A’ Man, in this world, the more beautiful things are, the more fragile it will be. Why couldn’t you understand this?”
Hu Yandian was awakened from her sleep. At this time, the night outside the window had not yet wholly faded. It was just a little bit before dawn, making it the darkest hour of the day.
Hu Yandian subconsciously raised her hand to touch the butterfly mask next to her pillow—-
The more beautiful it is, the more fragile it will be.
The more you love, the more inconsistent that relationship will be.
The butterfly mask in the palm of her hand resembled the black swallowtail butterfly she had encountered when she was a child. Hu Yandian still clearly remembered the picture of the black swallowtail butterfly struggling and die in vain.
The more you struggle, the more painful it will be.
The swallowtail is dead.
Just like A’ Man of that year.
Hu Yandian lowered her eyes and slowly raised her hand to put the butterfly mask on her face. This mask was not used to cover her face, and she did not need to use anything to enhance her aura of mysteriousness.
She just wanted to remind herself —
Aman is dead.
There is no such thing as Aman in this world.
Feng Yanwang, even if you return to the Central Plains, you will never find the little girl back then.
The wound on her shoulder was still aching. Hu Yandian eyes forcefully turned cold. She shouldn’t have got injured yesterday, but when she had been absent-minded while facing Feng Yanwang that she ended up getting caught with his sword qi.
Hu Yandian looked at her hands coldly. These hands are murderous. These sinful hand had been stained with blood——
Feng dage, I will never have the face to see you again…
[T/N: See the usual novel trope here? The villainess vs Female Lead. Evil hand vs Benevolent hand, sigh~]
Above the mountain peak, the morning fog is thick.
Xia Beibei was wearing a red dress as she stood facing the wind on top of the mountain.
Looking around, you can still vaguely see two groups of people who are still fighting under the mountain. The Xueyi sect’s disciples wore red attires while people in various outfits were naturally from the Wulin Alliance.
“Aiyou, what a lively fight.”
A lazy male voice suddenly sounded from behind her. Xia Beibei’s eyes immediately turned cold. At the moment she turned around, countless ray of lights whizzed in the direction of the sound.
“Tsk tsk tsk, it turned out that a wasp’s tail needle is the most poisonous as a woman’s heart.”
Feng Jiutian who dressed in black, avoided Xia Beibei’s hidden weapon, as he narrowed his eyes and looked at her mockingly.
Xia Beibei was relieved when she found out that the person behind her turned out to be Feng Jiutian: “If I knew it was Landlord Feng, how could I used my hidden weapons against you?”
No matter what was said, it is much better to chop him with a kitchen knife, cough cough.
Feng Jiutian raised his eyebrows and looked at Xia Beibei indifferently: “As the holy priestess of the Xueyi sect, you seem to have not participated in the battle. Why? Are your old injuries still not good?”
With that being said, Feng Jiutian couldn’t help but look at Xia Beibei up and down for a few times.
“Thank you for your concern. I’m actually pretty good.”
Xia Beibei answered indifferently and then turned to look at the battlefield below the mountain: “If I’m not mistaken, Landlord Feng, you should be looking for that person, right?”
That person was naturally Chu Ran.
Although she didn’t know who Chu Ran was, his existence has been destroying the plot of this world.
Yesterday, Xia Beibei had been suspecting that the person who had been spreading those rumours in the Wulin circle should be Chu Ran. Now seeing Feng Jiutian’s figure, Xia Beibei was almost sure that that person must be Chu Ran, and he should have been hiding among the people in the Wulin Alliance. Naturally, Feng Jiutian came here for that.
Hearing Chu Ran’s name from Xia Beibei’s mouth, Feng Jiutian’s expression became solemn, but it was only a momentary matter.
In an instant, Feng Jiutian regained his lazy look.
In this world, no one can tell that he is not the real Feng Jiutian.
He almost flawlessly performed everything about Feng Jiutian. From his venomous tongue to his grumpy, languid and sloppy manner.
Even the people of the Tianxiang’s building did not know that their Landlord’s core has been replaced with someone else…
As an excellent law enforcement officer, you must be able to perform various roles perfectly.
Yan Yicheng looked at Xia Beibei who stood on the top of the mountain, with a faint smile in his eyes——
Qing Zhi told him that he liked Xia Beibei, but Yan Yicheng didn’t believe her.
He didn’t show up near Xia Beibei on purpose, nor did he need to prove to anyone that he didn’t like her.
He appeared here because he wanted to take Chu Ran back, nothing more…
“Do you know Feng Yanwang?”
A burst of morning wind blew by, blowing Xia Beibei’s fine black hair and make her red dress fluttered in the breeze.
She suddenly turned around and looked at Feng Jiutian with cold eyes: “Landlord Feng, your Tianxiang’s building was known to be omniscient and omnipotent, so do you know why Feng Yanwang had come to Central Plains?”
Hearing Xia Beibei mentioning the name, Feng Jiutian raised his eyebrows with interest: “I naturally know his purpose for coming here. Why, Ye Lan? Are you interested in him?”
“Sell it to me.”
Xia Beibei suddenly raised her hand. A stack of banknotes fluttered with the wind: “Sell me the news of Feng Yanwang, and I will give you all the money!”
“What do you want his news for?”
Feng Jiutian stood still, staring at Xia Beibei intensely.
“I just want to pursue him, can’t I?”
Xia Beibei rolled her eyes. Why did Feng Jiutian being so long-winded today? It is really not according to his style who love making a profit by conning other people’s wealth.
Hearing Xia Beibei’s words, Feng Jiutian’s face changed a bit, before turning back to normal again: “Aiya, why didn’t you say it earlier? Since it’s not impossible to sell to you like this, then give me ten thousand taels. This is a fixed price!”
Why don’t you just become a robber?
No, even robbery won’t let you grab that much.
Xia Beibei took out another stack of silver bills—the Xueyi sect is wealthy. Therefore, Lan jie decided to become willful this time around.
