Fey Evolution Merchant - Chapter 521: Crescent Moon Radiant Sunlight Tablet
Chapter 521: Crescent Moon Radiant Sunlight Tablet
Upon hearing Cold Moon’s words, the Moon Empress did not appear particularly surprised.
Over the week that Lin Yuan had been sleeping, the Moon Empress had long noticed Cold Moon’s closeness to Chu Ci.
However, she did not expect Cold Moon, whose personality had always been cold, to voluntarily accept a disciple.
With that thought in mind, the Moon Empress was certain that Cold Moon had only gotten the idea of accepting a disciple after seeing her accept Lin Yuan as her disciple.
Since Cold Moon had learned from her, the Moon Empress felt the need to teach the former how to be a good Master.
From the Moon Empress’ point of view, a Master who did not know how to dote on their disciple could not be considered a good one.
“Cold Moon, you must smile more in Chu Ci’s presence in the future. It is not good to be too serious.”
Having said this, the Moon Empress thought for a while before changing the subject.
“Since you just accepted Chu Ci as a disciple, why don’t you find her a Path Protector? This would also guarantee her safety.”
The Moon Empress’ expression was extremely earnest as she said this. After all, the Moon Empress had just been anxious and frightened because of Lin Yuan’s recent incident.
Upon hearing the Moon Empress’ words, Cold Moon hurriedly replied, “Moon Empress, I see that Chu Ci gets along well with my Icy King Dragon. I plan to name it Chu Ci’s Path Protector.”
The Moon Empress felt that Cold Moon was ready to be a Master.
Suddenly, she turned her gaze to the pitiful little rabbit lying on the table that was looking at the carrot growing in the soil.
The little rabbit sensed someone’s eyes on its body and instantly raised its ears vigilantly.
After it saw that the Moon Empress was looking at it, the rabbit quickly turned around, stood up, and fiercely blocked the flowerpot where it had planted its carrot.
The Moon Empress shifted her gaze somewhat reluctantly. This rabbit was so close to falling into the carrot’s eyes!
At that moment, a clear voice rang from the entrance of the inner palace.
“Moon Empress, the Young Lord’s Path Protector, the Mother of Bloodbath, requests to see you.”
Turning her head to look toward the room within the inner palace, the Moon Empress said, “Let it in.”
With that, she placed one of the Smooth Crystal-Thread Jujubes that she had just peeled on the table.
Cold Moon sharply realized that the Moon Empress’ expression had become more somber.
Right after, Cold Moon saw a red-haired, red-eyed woman dressed in red enter through the inner palace’s entrance.
Cold Moon’s entire body sent out a terrifying force.
Under Cold Moon’s guidance, this force did not affect the plants in the inner palace.
However, when it handed on the Mother of Bloodbath’s body, it made the fey feel as though it was trapped in a glacier.
The Mother of Bloodbath gnashed its teeth and walked forward, against this force, until it stood before the Moon Empress.
At that moment, Cold Moon’s icy voice sounded. “Myth II? Your strength has improved significantly since the last time I saw you, but your alertness is too weak.”
The Mother of Bloodbath had already been extremely worried the past few days. Even though it knew that Lin Yuan was not likely to be in any mortal danger, it still did not know his exact condition. Hence, it still felt uneasy in its heart.
When the evolving dimensional entrance had suddenly swallowed Lin Yuan, the Mother of Bloodbath may not have been the most worried compared to the Moon Empress or Chu Ci.
However, as Lin Yuan’s Path Protector, it had undoubtedly blamed itself the most.
Upon confirming that Liu Jie and Zhou Luo had not been in danger, the Mother of Bloodbath had turned into a fist-sized spider like in the past before landing on the room’s beam.
From there, it had been looking in the direction of Leaning Moon Mountain.
Even when Liu Jie had cooked after waking up, the Mother of Bloodbath had not eaten a mouthful.
Now, it looked at the Moon Empress, someone who had previously saved her life and felt even more remorseful.
Just like what Mystic Moon had said, it had not been by Lin Yuan’s side to ensure his safety.
It had betrayed not only Lin Yuan’s trust but also the Moon Empress’ at the same time.
Even as the Mother of Bloodbath stood before the Moon Empress, it did not know what to say.
Nevertheless, after only two seconds, it broke the silence by asking softly, “Moon Empress, is Lin Yuan doing well now?”
The Moon Empress had originally harbored anger in her heart, but she sighed upon seeing the Mother of Bloodbath’s expression.
“Lin Yuan is no longer in danger now. He will be able to recover fully once he awakes.”
In the past, given the Moon Empress’ temper, it was highly possible that the Mother of Bloodbath would have been sublimated into nothingness the moment the Moon Empress had arrived.
It could be said that the Mother of Bloodbath had not protected Lin Yuan entirely because it had lost her sense of vigilance.
If not, given its Myth II power, the Mother of Bloodbath would never have let Lin Yuan be sucked into the dimensional rift.
However, the present Moon Empress knew that she could not do anything to the Mother of Bloodbath.
When the Moon Empress had been helping Lin Yuan to find a Path Protector, she had been helping him to establish a connection.
This had been comparable to giving Lin Yuan the Extreme Token.
After the Extreme Token had been used, the Moon Empress could replenish its strength by sealing another moonlight domain within it.
Even if a source-type item like the Extreme Token were to be damaged, the Moon Empress could still put some thought into finding a replacement.
Given that Lin Yuan was the Moon Empress’ disciple, she naturally understood his temperament.
With the Mother of Bloodbath’s role of Path Protector as a fetter, it shared a strong bond with Lin Yuan.
Hence, even the Moon Empress, who had never sighed upon encountering a difficult problem, now sighed for the first time as she faced the Mother of Bloodbath.
The Moon Empress sent a brown flowing light flying toward the Mother of Bloodbath with the wave of a hand.
The Mother of Bloodbath quickly grabbed the brown flowing light and found that it was a simple wooden tablet with a first-quarter and a third-quarter crescent moon carved on it.
The wooden tablet’s surface was faintly tinged with a halo of moonlight, making the crescent moons engraved on it appear somewhat hazy.
The Mother of Bloodbath held the wooden tablet somewhat perplexedly. At that moment, it heard the Moon Empress say, “Back then, I chose you as Lin Yuan’s Path Protector because your exclusive skill and abilities would have allowed you to increase your capital strength. That was why This Empress valued you.”
The Mother of Bloodbath quickly responded, “It was I who betrayed the Moon Empress’ trust.”
It spoke very calmly but with unspeakable firmness. It was as though it had committed a previously committed error to memory and would remember it for life.
Looking directly at the Mother of Bloodbath, the Moon Empress said coldly, “You did nothing to disappoint This Empress. It is This Empress’ only hope that you do not betray Lin Yuan’s trust in the future.
“You already repaid your debt to This Empress when you became Lin Yuan’s Path Protector.”
Upon hearing the Moon Empress’ words, the image of Lin Yuan’s determined gaze upon seeing it evolve to Myth II surfaced in the Mother of Bloodbath’s mind...
Along with all the bits and pieces of the times that it had spent with Lin Yuan.
