Offering Salted Fish To Master - chapter 19
Liao Tingyan heard it scold ‘Sima Jiao’ and guessed that it was probably the name of the ancestor.
The flame suddenly stopped.
Liao Tingyan noticed it. She turned her head to look, and saw the ancestor in a black robe at the door. His expression was grumpy. He came forward and tore off the red lotus petals under the flame one by one. Six pieces! After pulling a piece, Liao Tingyan could hear a low sob full of pain.
In front of the ancestor, the arrogant flame no longer dared to cry as loud as before. It was very weak and angry.
Sima Jiao finished pulling the petals, and then floated out like a ghost.
“Woo, my flower, the flower I had finally raised!” The flame cried softly, and said to Liao Tingyan fiercely, “If you help me, I’ll help you! Anyone who followed Sima Jiao, a lunatic would have no good end. Even if you help him, he will definitely kill you in the future. But if you help me, I can give you many treasures. Have you seen my red lotus? A petal is a thousand-year cultivation base. As long as you help me, I will give you twenty petals!”
Liao Tingyan: “…” Was the flame mentally retardated? No wonder, it was a flame. A flame had no brains.
She put away the six petals on the ground that Sima Jiao had just torn off as well as the one he first crushed into a ball. She kept a total of seven petals.
“Thank you, I know this is a treasure now.”
This should count as salary.
Unexpectedly, she had a salary, and Liao Tingyan felt shocked. No matter what hard work one needed to do, as long as they had enough wages, it was easy to negotiate.
The flame was angry, “As long as you help me, I will give you more. You have to know that except for Sima Jiao in this world, only I can pick red lotus petals!”
Liao Tingyan said, “No need.”
A human heart couldn’t swallow the elephant. She didn’t dare to think about it. What did cultivation of thousands of years mean? Even if one needed it, and they took it casually, they couldn’t stand it. There were many such plots in novels.
The flame continued to lure her like a pyramid scheme. Liao Tingyan took out her homemade sleep earplugs and stuffed them into her ears.
The task of watering the flower was complete. She should be able to take a break. Those who bring a full set of bedding and beds with them could enjoy a leisurely rest anytime, anywhere.
The big black snake crawled in at this time. It was very happy to see his new owner. When the flame saw the black snake, it screamed, “Get out of here!”
The big black snake climbed to the flames, drank tons of water, then raised his head and sprayed all the water on the flames.
It turned out that the black snake’s work task was also watering the flower.
The flame that had been poured twice was like a bullied kid. It kept yelling and crying, screaming, “That woman has watered me. Why do you, a stupid snake, come to water me?”
The big black snake squirted again, and when the flame wilted down, he slowly swam to Liao Tingyan’s side and arched his head to his boss’s hand.
Liao Tingyan: “…” Brother, you are a snake, not a dog.
She took out the basin used by the big black snake and poured bamboo liquid on it. The big black snake happily drank the bamboo liquid. Liao Tingyan asked, “Brother, do you know when I can get off work?”
The big black snake was busy.
Liao Tingyan went back paralyzed, “Forget it. I will wait for a while. I’m exhausted from climbing the stairs. Wait for me to recharge my energy.”
It seemed as if the big black snake suddenly understood her. He turned his head, crawled out and hissed at her. Liao Tingyan put her things away and followed. She sat with his tail curled on her body.
The big black snake often carried Sima Jiao like this, and was very used to having a person sitting on him, but Liao Tingyan was a bit motion sick for the first time.
The black snake carried her out. It passed through tall pillars and wide-open windows. They were at a very high place. Outside the window were those thick and criss-crossed iron chains, and there were floating jade plaques. They exuded a depressing aura. Liao Tingyan had no doubt that these were used to imprison the Great Demon Master. It was indeed a prison, as she guessed.
Liao Tingyan was in a daze, and was dragged into a room by the black snake. This room was also empty, but there were more things than other places, a long table and shelves, a bed and a rectangular pool.
The water in the pool was chilling which lowered the temperature of the entire room, and there was a person floating in the pool. The wide black hem and jet-black hair spread out in the water like seaweed, the overly pale face showed a strange cold color in the water. His clothes were wide open, exposing the collarbone of the neck and the large chest, which could only be fascinating.
Liao Tingyan even saw the two points on the Master’s chest…no, she didn’t want to die! She grabbed the scales of the big black snake with both hands and pulled its head back.
‘Hurry up! If I am found peeking at this ancestor in the bath, I will be dead! You scheming snake. Did you deliberately frame your colleague?’
The big black snake didn’t know what she was frightened from, and hissed in doubt. Liao Tingyan watched the ancestor soaking in the pool awakened. He opened his eyes, and sat up to look at them.
“Shizu, I watered the flower. Can I get off work?” Liao Tingyan asked in the softest voice in her life.
Sima Jiao stared at her for a while, precisely at her bursting scalp, and then slowly hummed. That stupid snake was dragged out by Liao Tingyan and he laughed.
