Try to think about it, a naked cannibalistic flower, being crazy drunk in the middle of a quiet night: flopping in the gleaming lake, chasing fireflies on the grass, swinging among the luminous trees… As an audience, how do you think Mu Ronghen was feeling?
I really want to slap him unconscious.
Although this cannibalistic flower who loved playing had his fair share of silly antics, he had outdone himself so much that it made Mu Ronghen, a leader of a demonic sect who had seen most of the mortal world, open her eyes…
Finally, Mu Ronghen could not bear it anymore. When Lan Xiaohua had played enough and ran back towards her without any care in the world, she quickly tapped on his sleeping acupuncture points and used her vines to help him put on his clothes. Although he was awkwardly dressed, she could finally look straight at him.
Lan Xiaohua must have tired himself out as he was fast asleep. Recalling the scenes in the forest just now, Mu Ronghen slightly lowered her eyes slightly, restraining the urge to drop him, and ended up controlling the vines to drag Lan Xiaohua behind her, slowly towards their mushroom house.
It was very quiet there, at this place where everyone upholds nature, the people of the tribe abide by the rule to rest after sundown, so they were already asleep. Until she walked near the mushroom house, Mu Ronghen suddenly felt someone’s presence. Therefore, she quickly retracted her vines, embraced Lan Xiaohua in her arms, and calmly walked out of the forest.
That person was Lan Dikong, she was currently hovering suspiciously near Lan Xiaohua’s house. When she heard footsteps behind her, she stopped and pretended to pass by this place as if nothing had happened.
Mu Ronghen, “…”
Lan Dikong pretended to look back calmly, and when she saw Mu Ronghen appearing behind her, she could not helped being stunned.
Lan Dikong, “…” No wonder I didn’t hear any movements after listening for a long time, it turns out they weren’t home…
Because of what happened during the day, there was a bit of unnaturalness in Lan Dikong’s face when she was facing Mu Ronghen. However, when she saw Lan Xiaohua who was in Mu Ronghen’s arms, her eyes were immediately rounded.
Lan Dikong, “!!”
At this time, Lan Xiaohua in the woman’s arms, clothes disheveled, long hair slightly damp, face flushed, he looked like he had been played by her badly…
Lan Dikong was a few years older than Lan Xiaohua, so naturally she immediately thought of something.
“You…” Lan Dikong was gritting her teeth, she looked at Mu Ronghen as if looking at an enemy of several generations, “Xiao Hua is so pure and weak, he’s still a child, how could you…”
It was obvious that Lan Dikong was furious, her voice was shaking.
Mu Ronghen, “…” Have you seen a child this big?
Mu Ronghen’s eyes were full of helplessness, but in Lan Dikong’s eyes, they seemed full of ridicule.
“It’s late in the night, and you force Xiao Hua to go into the forest with you… You humans, are really, really… shameless!” Lan Dikong said with grief.
Mu Ronghen, “…” There is indeed someone shameless who had been jumping around naked, but he is not a “human”.
Lan Dikong, seeing the woman in front of her was still indifferent, was about to attack her, and saw Lan Xiaohua who was in Mu Ronghen’s arms moved a bit, as if having his dreams disturbed. He moaned, rubbing against Mu Ronghen’s chest, and then muttered happily, “Da Zhuang… Today… I had so much fun…”
Lan Dikong, “…”
Mu Ronghen, “…”
Since Lan Xiaohua who was being “forced” had said this, Lan Dikong’s words of anger were stuck in her throats. Her face reddened and she leave in anger.
Mu Ronghen was not in a good mood, she put Lan Xiaohua on the bed when they entered the mushroom house. However, Lan Xiaohua seemed to like to sleep in a certain someone’s arms more, he seemed uncomfortable when his body touched the bed, he hugged Mu Ronghen’s waist unwilling to let go.
Mu Ronghen, “…”
The faint fragrance of flower and wine had not dissipated yet, Mu Ronghen was a little dizzy because of them, and suddenly realized something.
Lan Xiaohua had said before that there was “something” in the wine, but he could not fine it even after drinking it all. Mu Ronghen guessed that Lan Xiaohua may have got it wrong, the thing inside the wine… Could it be something similar to aphrodisiac in her original world, that couples drink on the night of their wedding?
Thinking of this, Mu Ronghen looked at Lan Xiaohua who was hugging her wait and swaying his butt and rubbing against her, and she felt certain.
Mu Ronghen, “…”
“Da Zhuang, I feel so hot… I feel unwell…” Lan Xiaohua said softly, his voice wet.
Mu Ronghen frowned slightly, she had also drank a few glasses of the wine. Although the effect was not as strong as it was for Lan Xiaohua, but she felt uncomfortable being hugged and rubbed against by Lan Xiaohua.
Mu Ronghen looked around the house, looking for something that could temporarily distract Lan Xiaohua. In the end, she controlled the vines and took the huge egg which was on the table here.
The feeling of the slightly cool eggshell sticking to his face seemed to be useful on Lan Xiaohua. He was in dilemma between the woman’s waist and the cool egg.
“Listen to me, hug your egg to sleep, and I will cook it for you tomorrow.” Mu Ronghen whispered.
Lan Xiaohua closed his mouth when he heard the words, hesitated for a moment while being haf-dreaming and half-awake, finally letting go of Mu Ronghen’s waist and fell into the embrace of his beloved egg.
Mu Ronghen straightened her waist, leaned over and concentrated her internal strength on her fingertips and tapped two acupuncture points on Lan Xiaohua’s back. Seeing Lan Xiaohua’s breathing gradually stabilized, and his body no longer writhing uncomfortably, Mu Ronghen turned around and left.
Mu Ronghen sat beside the table and poured a wat4er for herself.
She did not see Lan Xiaohua for the past few days. When she saw him today, she realized that the progress bar above his head kept on shining slowly.
When they entered the mangrove forest, Lan Xiaohua’s progress bar was also like this. So Mu Ronghen guessed that Lan Xiaohua’s next danger would happen soon.
But now he had returned to his tribe. This place was so quiet and safe, what kind of danger could it be?
Mu Ronghen was thinking about it while adjusting her breath. Time flew quickly, and it dawned in a blink of an eye. Then, Mu Ronghen heard Lan Xiaohua’s scream:
“Ah~~~ Da Zhuang, help me!!”
Mu Ronghen rushed to the bed when she heard it, and saw Lan Xiaohua sitting on the bed looking terrified, eyes brimming with tears, “Da Zhuang, the egg’s broken…”
Mu Ronghen looked at the egg in Lan Xiaohua’s arms which was full of cracks, “…” She thought that last night’s drug made a certain flower’s balls broken…
“If it’s broken, it’s broken, we can still eat it.” Mu Ronghen said indifferently, and had thought of a hundred and eight ways to cook this egg.
That huge egg seemingly have sensed Mu Ronghen’s thoughts, it shook violently.
“Ah~~ Da Zhuang, my egg’s moving!” Lan Xiaohua said in fear.
At this moment, they heard a cracking sound and its shell was broken from the inside, and then, a fluffly head came out of it while chirping.
“Ah~~ A chicken came out of my egg!” Lan Xiaohua continued to scream.
Mu Ronghen’s eardrums were about to be cracked by Lan Xiaohua.
Then, the cracks in the eggshell continued to be pecked open, and a chicken tremblingly swayed out of it, looking around with a bewildered expression.
Mu Ronghen, “…” The vitality of this egg was very strong. It heard that it was about to be eaten, it immediately broke its shells. Moreover, it paid great attention to its image, its hair was clean and tidy.
Lan Xiaohua, “This chicken is very similar to the one I have seen before, it was very fluffly, so cute.”
The chick seemed to have understood Lan Xiaohua’s words. It glanced at Mu Ronghen, then glanced back at Lan Xiaohua, then chose to pounce on Lan Xiaohua flatteringly.
“This little chick seems to like me.” Lan Xiaohua said in joy.
Seeing this, the chick instinctively flattered him harder and harder, rubbing its little fluffy head against Lan Xiaohua’s legs.
The chick was very well-behaved in Lan Xiaohua’s arms, enjoying his caress.
Then, it heard Lan Xiaohua, with a tender expression, said, “I wonder if it would taste as delicious as its mom?”
The chick, “!!”
Mu Ronghen, “…” She was not sure if she was hallucinating, but she felt that the chick in Lan Xiaohua’s arms went stiff after hearing Lan Xiaohua’s words.
Lan Xiaohua seemed to have not sensed that there was something wrong with the chick, and continued to caress its feathers while drooling.
Then, the chick fainted in Lan Xiaohua’s arms…
“Ah~~ Da Zhuang, my little chicken fainted!” Lan Xiaohua said, alarmed.
Mu Ronghen, “…”
Lan Xiaohua, “Da Zhuang, is it hungry?”
Mu Ronghen, “…” I’m 80% sure that it’s scared of you…
Lan Xiaohua looked at the chick that was unconscious, and seemed very worried, “I don’t now what it usually eats… Da Zhuang, will it starve to death?”
Lan Xiaohua looked at Mu Ronghen.
Mu Ronghen, “…” How would she know?
Lan Xiaohua looked at Mu Ronghen’s reaction, and naturally knew that the woman was the same as him, other than the taste this chick would have after being cooked, they did not know anything.
“Looks like I could only ask big sis.” Lan Xiaohua said and frowned, he seemed a little hesitant. He fought with his sister yesterday, and now, he was afraid that his sister did not want to see him. But he looked at the little chick lying softly in his arms, shook off his thoughts and was about to get off the bed. Just as soon as his foot touched the ground, his body leaned forward uncontrollably. Fortunately, Mu Ronghen quickly got a hold of him, otherwise, Lan Xiaohua’s head would have hit the ground.
“Strange, why am I running out of strength? Also, my body’s sore and painful.” Lan Xiaohua hung on Mu Ronghen’s arm, wondering.
Mu Ronghen, “…” It seems that he did not remember the things that occurred last night.
Lan Xiaohua had been drunk and wandered in the woods naked for the most half of the night. After returning home, Mu Ronghen had been worried that the drug in the wine would make him so weird things, so she used her internal strength and tapped his two acupoints, relieving his strength. Now, of course his body would be sore and painful.
“Since you feel uncomfortable, I’ll go to your sister in your stead.” Mu Ronghen said indifferently, put Lan Xiaohua on the bed, and took the chick from Lan Xiaohua’s arms.
“But, Big Sis…” Lan Xiaohua was worried.
“It’s okay, she can’t beat me.” Mu Ronghen walked out while holding the chick.
Lan Xiaohua, “…” If Big Sis heard it, she would definitely be furious on the spot.
Of course, Mu Ronghen walking on the road to Lan Dikong’s house gained a lot of attention. But Mu Ronghen did not care one bit, she knew that she should be doing, so how did others look at her have anything to do with her?
When Lan Dikong opened the door and saw Mu Ronghen, she was surprised. However, she calmed her expression and said coldly, “What are you doing here? Where’s Xiao Hua?”
“Xiao Hua’s still resting,” Mu Ronghen said indifferently.
Hearing this, Lan Dikong recalled the scene that she had seen last night, her teeth were itching with hate, “You liar! Don’t you think that with Lan Xiaohua protecting you, you can do whatever you want! I ask you, since you said it before, Lan Xiaohua married you because he wants to save you, then last night… How could you trick Xiaohua into being with you last night… With you…”
Lan Dikong’s face flushed, not sure if it was anger or something else.
Mu Ronghen felt that Lan Dikong had been speaking incoherently and strangely since yesterday. Since she misunderstood that she had been disrespectful towards her baby brother, then why had not she taken Lan Xiaohua away to protect him, and looking at her while being worried now. What was the point of it?
She really could not understand the world of the cannibalistic flowers.
Lan Dikong gasped for a long time before she gradually calmed down. Only then did she notice that Mu Ronghen was holding something in her hand.
Lan Dikong, “What is that in your hand?”
Mu Ronghen, “You little brother’s chick.”
