Demon King's Repayment - chapter 174
A girl with a ribbon in her hair appeared on the branch and sat beside Yuan Xiang. She swayed her slender and translucent legs, looked down at the empty tree with her cheeks supported, and complained.
A feeling of loneliness flooded Yuan Xiang’s heart like a tide.
The girl turned to look at Yuan Xiang who was sitting beside her, and smiled in the mild sunlight, “I’m sorry, I accidentally pulled you in.”
She took Yuan Xiang’s hand and pushed her gently, “I haven’t seen a human for a long time, I’m really happy. I’ll send you out, thank you.”
Yuan Xiang was in a trance, and found that she was still standing in front of the ancient plane tree. Her palm was still on the trunk. Hu Qing beside her had raised her head to look at her.
Time had only passed for a short moment. She was just affected by the soul in the tree. The long time she saw turned out to be a distant memory of the tree in front of her.
“You…” Yuan Xiang looked up at the huge tree that covered the sky, “I will return to the human world soon, if you still want, give me a branch of yours, I can plant it in the world where human beings live.”
After a while, as if the wind was blowing, the dense branches and leaves made a thin sound, and a small branch fell in the air. The front end of the tender branch curled with two small buds, shining brightly. It was bright and rich in spiritual energy, which could keep it alive for a long time after leaving the trunk.
Yuan Xiang wrapped the small branch with pieces of spiritual jades together, and carefully put it into her backpack.
When they set off and continued to walk forward, there was a sound of waves from the forest behind them, as if saying goodbye to the small branch in Yuan Xiang’s backpack.
Yuan Xiang turned her head. The shrine standing under the ancient tree in the mountain was no longer visible, only the dense green leaves on the towering canopy beckoned gently in the wind.
“What’s wrong, Ah Xiang? What did you pick up that branch for?” Hu Qing asked Yuan Xiang.
“I seem to have seen the tree God here just now. She told me that she misses the human world very much. So I plan to take her back to see it.”
“Just now? Were you affected by the tree spirit?” Hu Qing stretched out her hand and held Yuan Xiang, “These trees have been flexible for many years, although they can’t move, they often have special abilities, especially good at seducing humans. Not to mention taking away your soul, it is possible to take away your whole being. You should stay away from them. It’s better to go far.”
Nan He turned into a wolf, and shook his beautiful hair, “The road here is not easy to walk, so I’ll carry you.”
Yuan Xiang felt very guilty when she saw Nan He.
“Ah, no, no need. I’ll just go by myself,” she blushed slightly, declined Nan He’s invitation, and stuck two divine talismans on her legs to help herself walk quickly.
She had had that kind of particularly unspeakable dream for two or three days in a row.
In the dream, Nan He was lying in the wild with his tail provoking her, but if she hadn’t woken up halfway, she would have almost been unable to resist the temptation several times, and she would have almost pressed him to the tree and brought him to justice.
Nan He glanced at her silently, turned back into human form, and walked ahead without saying a word.
The Golden Crow (sun) fell to the west, the Jade Rabbit (moon) rose to the east, Yuan Xiang and her party surrounded the bonfire and slept in the wilderness at night.
Wu Yuan’s stomach was full, and he had already fallen asleep on the blanket Yuan Xiang had placed for him.
Dushuo stood up to inspect the surrounding security. Yuan Xiang and Hu Qing huddled together to chat.
“What’s the matter with you? Are you trying to avoid Nan He on purpose?” Hu Qing whispered, she raised her chin and pointed in the direction of Nan He, “Why did you treat Xiao Nan like this all of a sudden? Can’t you see how sad he is?”
“Ah, is it so obvious?” Yuan Xiang touched her nose, not knowing how to explain it.
In order to prevent herself from having that kind of dream again, she deliberately kept a little distance from Nan He. But did she really act so distant that even Ah Qing could see it at a glance?
She glanced at Nan He secretly. The silver Sirius curled up at the other end of the bonfire. His head silently buried in his tail, his ears drooping listlessly. On every cold night along the way, Yuan Xiang squeezed beside him to fall asleep early, only that night she did not.
This sensitive guy was really sad.
Yuan Xiang walked over embarrassingly with the blanket in her arms. She was lying beside Nan He, wrapped in a blanket. His claws were tucked away, and she silently recited the meditation mantra twice in her heart, praying that she would not be beastly in her dream and reveal something wrong.
“Did I do something wrong?” A familiar voice suddenly sounded in her mind.
It was low, bitter and sad.
