Demon King's Repayment - chapter 145
The people abandoned their carriage and left for a boat in Ezhou, changing the waterway back to Dongting Lake.
The river was deep, and the giant ship was light. Hu Qing was sitting in the wing of the building, and immersed herself in writing and drawing on the table. Her desk was covered with a thick stack of papers.
On the way there, she used almost all the time to rest and tasted the specialty snacks of the places she passed by. Sometimes when she went to a place, she would order a table full of dishes, while tasting each dish with chopsticks, while taking notes with paper and pen, she actually sent Sanlang out to buy delicious recipes.
At that moment, she was slowly extracting the transcription, and her desk was covered with thick stacks of papers. Yuan Xiang picked them up and saw that they were full of all kinds of special snacks and classic dishes they ate along the way. For example, Jingdu’s mutton, fruit wood roast duck, Ezhou’s hot dry noodles, four seasons soup dumplings, glutinous soup powder, and Dingzhou’s red simmered Dongting golden turtle, eight treasures pearl fish. Regardless of the large and small dishes or the street food ingredients, the recipes, which restaurants come from, she wrote every detail.
“Ah Qing what is this for?” Yuan Xiang asked.
“Dragons have a good appetite. The blue dragon in the Sirius Mountain comes out every sixty years, eats food, and returns home when he is full. But he is notoriously addicted to food. Since we are going to the dragon cave, I think I should try my best to collect all kinds of dishes and delicacies, and bring them to the mountain.” Hu Qing bowed her head to sort out the recipe record, and smiled embarrassedly, “I just thought about it from my own perspective. It may not necessarily be useful.”
“It turns out you are preparing for me to fetch the Water Spirit Orb. Thank you for your help,” Yuan Xiang hadn’t started to think about how to enter the dragon’s cave, but she didn’t expect Ah Qing to already start making careful preparations for her.
Her method might really work. Yuan Xiang remembered that on the night of the New Year’s Eve, she saw the dragon slowly flying back to Sirius Mountain.
Hu Qing stopped writing and looked at the pile of beautiful handwriting, “Axiang, some kindness could not be repaid by saying thank you. So I have never thanked you. You saved Lord Dushuo. For you, at least I can’t let you be alone in danger,”
“I will definitely help you get the orb,” she immersed herself in writing.
Dushuo’s figure appeared outside the door frame.
“Master Dushuo, why did you get up?” Hu Qing hurriedly got up to help him.
Du Shuo raised an arm and declined her action, “Ah Qing, I’m much better.”
His complexion was much better than that of two days ago, with long straight hair, jet black lips, and in an ordinary cloak, he sat down opposite Yuan Xiang, “What do you need me to do?”
“What do I need you to do?” Yuan Xiang thought for a while. Dushuo’s wound was treated by her. She knew how terrifying and painful it was. It was definitely not a wound that could be healed in two or three days.
Seeing that he could get up had already surprised Yuan Xiang,
“I don’t need you to do anything. You can take a good rest and take care of your injury slowly.”
Dushuo’s facial features stretched a bit, obviously surprised by that statement, “But…”
He did not doubt Yuan Xiang’s kindness toward him.
But he also thought that since this human had borrowed himself, when she would enter the cave to fetch the water spirit orbs, she would at least let him, the great demon, stand in front of her.
After all, the dragon was an ancient divine beast, powerful. No one would be an opponent of a huge real dragon. If the national teacher went on the expedition, his many apostles would definitely stand in front of him.
He also prepared himself to work hard for Yuan Xiang.
But she only allowed him to cultivate and heal his injuries. She didn’t need him to do anything for her.
Dushuo couldn’t help thinking of the mountain forest where he once lived.
At the beginning, he accidentally helped several humans in the mountains. Those humans were grateful to him, offered flowers and fruits, regarded him as a God, and even built a mountain temple for him.
At first he found it very interesting, he was responsive to those people, and those human beings were grateful for it and praised him. But later, Dushuo gradually discovered that human beings were not as easily satisfied and happy as his peers. Their desires were complex and deep, and were difficult. They would never be realized and never end.
Until he could no longer realize everyone’s wishes, until he was dragged into the abyss by these people, who spat and trampled him.
He once thought he had seen through the human race. But then he had discovered that the race was just as diverse as their desires and temperament.
“Du Shuo,” Yuan Xiang looked at the heavy shackles still tied to him, “Perhaps humans have done too much to you, but I still want to tell you, the last time I passed by that mountain temple, I saw an old man there who prays for your peace and joy every day. It is because of him that I know your story and wanted to reach out and give you a little help.”
Dushuo’s eyelashes were drooping, and a smile appeared at the corner of his mouth, “It’s him, that boy.”
It turned out that there were not only those greedy and vicious humans, but also those who were kind to him without asking for anything in return, and there were also humans who cared about him and helped him.
He once loved those creatures, it was not wrong.
After Dongting Lake, Zhou Deyun disembarked in Dingzhou, parted ways with Yuan Xiang, and went home separately.
Zhou Deyun set up a table of food as a farewell.
He bowed to Yuan Xiang, “If you need ingredients or recipes, I’ll help. When I get home, I will collect and prepare them carefully and send them to Queqiu.”
“I’m interested, thank you,” Yuan Xiang patted him on the shoulder.
“Well, I should thank you. Thank you, little master, for your hard work.” Zhou Deyun sighed, “Although Ah Yan didn’t come back, at least I knew what happened. In the past, I prided myself on being chic and broad-minded, but I was just sitting on the well and watching the sky. After this trip, I knew that many things in this world are not what I thought.”
“It’s best if you could think about it. Go back and live your life,” Yuan Xiang comforted him.
“Little master, I…I still can’t let go of Ah Yan.” Zhou Deyun’s face flushed slightly, “I think about reorganizing the family business and relocating to Gaotang. When I have time, I will go to see Ah Yan. If I go there a few times, after a long time, when Ah Yan sees my sincerity, maybe she could change her mind.”
Zhou Deyun’s words surprised Yuan Xiang. She did not expect him, who had always been gentle and weak, to be so persistent about his wife.
What they would do in the future could only be done by themselves.
On the wine table, Ah Qing played a song, and the infinite tenderness flowed unabashedly with the sound of the song. Her eyes were full of happiness, and her scorching eyes only lingered on one person.
