Fey Evolution Merchant - Chapter 522: Smile and Smile Until Tears Fall
Chapter 522: Smile and Smile Until Tears Fall
The Mother of Bloodbath bowed to the Moon Empress and said, “Moon Empress, since Lin Yuan is no longer in any danger, I will return to the mansion to await his return.”
After speaking, it prepared to place the wooden tablet that the Moon Empress had just thrown to it on the table before her.
At that moment, the Mother of Bloodbath heard the Moon Empress speak again.
“Am I right to say that your strength is insufficient against a veteran faction like the Zheng family?
“Before the veteran factions, the Myth Breed’s emperor-class combat power will eventually become a shield that does not let a trace of frost pass through.
“However, it’s another matter if you can attain Creation Breed combat power.
“This Crescent Moon Radiant Sunlight Tablet will protect you through the Trial of World Creation, such that you will not fall when you evolve to the Creation Breed. The rest is up to you.”
The Mother of Bloodbath froze with the wooden tablet in its hands. It had a complicated expression on its face.
However, it regained its original composure in an instant.
The Mother of Bloodbath thanked the Moon Empress again. Then, it gripped the Crescent Moon Radiant Sunlight Tablet tightly in its hand and left the Radiant Moon Palace to return to the mansion.
After the Mother of Bloodbath left, Cold Moon looked at the Moon Empress as though she was meeting her for the first time. She asked, perplexed, “You could have directly awarded the Crescent Moon Radiant Sunlight Tablet to the Mother of Bloodbath. Why did you put so much thought into it?”
Cold Moon knew that the Moon Empress had never been a woman of many words.
However, she had unexpectedly disclosed the Zheng family’s might when giving the Crescent Moon Radiant Sunlight Tablet to the Mother of Bloodbath.
Although the Moon Empress had only said one more sentence, it had completely transformed Cold Moon’s impression of her.
At that moment, the Moon Empress picked up the Smooth Crystal-Thread Jujubes that she had just put down and began using the jade-textured osmanthus wood pestle to continue pounding them.
Upon hearing Cold Moon’s question, she replied, “This small spider’s self-respect is very great. If This Empress did not mention Lin Yuan and the Zheng family, even if this Crescent Moon Radiant Sunlight Tablet could help it weather the Trial of World Creation, it would not have accepted it.”
Having said this, the Moon Empress glanced at Cold Moon before continuing. “Once you’ve become a Master, you will realize that martial force cannot solve every problem. In This Empress’ view, the wisdom required to be a Master far outweighs that required to be a Class 5 Creation Master.”
Upon hearing this, the corner of Cold Moon’s mouth could not help but twitch.
She did not understand why the Moon Empress had said this.
In Cold Moon’s opinion, it was very easy to be a Master.
In the future, as long as Chu Ci needed it, she would give Chu Ci everything that she could and create the conditions to give everything that she could not. Wasn’t that all there was to it?
It was this simple!
Just then, Mystic Moon’s clear voice rang from the inner palace’s entrance again.
After entering, he immediately reported, “Moon Empress, about the Spirit Savory Pigs that you asked me to get from Chef Supreme... Chef Supreme said that only the last three pigs were left, and I only managed to get one after much struggle.”
Upon hearing this, the Moon Empress’s brows knitted together.
“How can there only be three left this year? Hasn’t old Chef Supreme been studying the Spirit Savory Pigs’ breeding process and the postpartum care of sows in Kitchen Fragrant House these few years?”
Mystic Moon’s face revealed an indescribable expression. After organizing his messy thoughts, he responded, “According to Chef Supreme’s first disciple, his second disciple has been studying how to make braised pork more delicious since the latter’s return.
“Because Chef Supreme hadn’t seen his daughter in a long while, he let his second disciple and his daughter live in Kitchen Fragrant House for half a month.
“However, during this half a month, Chef Supreme’s second disciple had his eyes on those Spirit Savory Pigs. His second disciple slaughtered even the three old sows that had been responsible for producing piglets.
“In my view, it might not only be this year that there are only three Spirit Savory Pigs but every year from now on.”
The Moon Empress and Cold Moon were silent for a long while before responding in unison.
“Lin Yuan is still the best.”
“Chu Ci is still the best.”
Blinking his eyes, Mystic Moon reached out and touched the back of his head.
It looked like he was now the only one without a disciple in the Radiant Moon Palace.
Why did he suddenly feel as though he was being isolated?
Lin Yuan had originally been fully immersed in his strange dream.
After an indeterminate period of time, he felt his thoughts return to his body. He could even faintly perceive everything around him through the faint spiritual energy in his mind.
He could feel the soft bed beneath his body, Morbius on his wrist, and the Flowing Cloud Beeswax pendant on his neck.
Although he could sense everything, he could not lift his heavy eyelids no matter how hard he tried.
However, Lin Yuan could already begin interacting with his feys in his mind.
Apart from the sleeping Chimey, Genius, Red Thorn, the Source Sand, and the Ethereal Jellyfish that had returned to his spiritual spatial zone at some unknown time were all interacting with Lin Yuan now.
Especially when communicating with Lin Yuan, Genius had an unusually obvious tearful note in its child-like voice.
After Lin Yuan comforted it for a while, Genius finally calmed down.
However, Lin Yuan found that no matter how he called for Morbius, he was unable to establish a connection with it.
He was extremely familiar with Morbius’ current state.
Morbius was now in the state of deep sleep that it had been in when he had just contracted it.
Suddenly, Lin Yuan inexplicably thought about the reddish-gold light in his dream.
Just at that moment, an ethereal voice sounded from the deepest depths of his soul.
Upon hearing this voice, Lin Yuan initially thought of responding. Unfortunately, he fell once again into a deep sleep in his fatigued state.
When he awoke, he found that he could open his eyes.
In the instant that Lin Yuan opened his eyes, he immediately saw Chu Ci standing guard by his bedside.
It was obvious that Chu Ci had been sitting there for a long time. Her hair was rather unkempt, its dull ends sticking up.
Lin Yuan did not know what the dozing Chu Ci had been dreaming about, but there were obviously traces of undried tears in the corners of her eyes.
Lin Yuan subconsciously reached out to help her wipe the corners of her eyes.
Yet, immediately after stretching his hands out, he found that they had returned to their initial positions.
Still, Lin Yuan could not help but recall the pain in his hands at that time, the pain of countless blooming blades.
After experiencing that kind of pain once, one would never wish to experience it again.
When he reached out to wipe the corners of Chu Ci’s eyes, Lin Yuan’s slight movement woke her up in a moment.
In that instant, Chu Ci appeared as though she had not returned from her shallow dream. Panic was still written plainly on her face.
However, upon seeing that Lin Yuan had awakened, a bright smile broke out on Chu Ci’s face.
It was comparable to the bright and beautiful spring sun in April.
Yet, as she smiled and smiled, large teardrops fell from her eyes onto Lin Yuan’s arms, which still carried the warmth of Chu Ci’s body temperature.
