Chapter 18: The Two Lolitas Return Safely
Zi Linglong finally broke through the fire snake restriction. When her body landed, she swooped over to the black-robed man. Her fist also smashed at him the same time, making the sounds of “snapping” and bones breaking.
Zi Linglong did not stop because of this. She continued to break his neck and arms. In short, her methods were extremely cruel.
At this moment, Long Shiyan suddenly jumped out of the corner and moved behind Zi Linglong, shielding her eyes with the cloth. Zi Linglong subconsciously grabbed Long Shiyan’s arm and then threw her away.
Long Shiyan smashed onto the wall, obtaining new wounds. She crawled out from the ruins, but the remains of the wall could not support her body as it collapsed.
However, her actions weren’t meaningless.
After the berserk Zi Linglong hurled Long Shiyan away, her eyes remained covered. Zi Linglong’s body swayed unsteadily and soon fell onto the ground.
After her eyes burst out with an intense red light, the light disappeared. Zi Linglong closed her eyes and toppled onto the ground. Her dark skin finally came off as if she was molting, and her skin was soon restored back to her original skin tone.
The sky thundered and flashed, and the heavy rain fell down. At this moment, the blue pearl suddenly floated out, and then with a few flashes of light, it disappeared.
When Long Shiyan woke up, she found that she was safe. But… the room she was in was not her own, which meant that she did not return to the Long family.
However, there was no trace of Zi Linglong.
“Waaah, Host, you finally woke up!” System Qian Qian suddenly emerged from the bed. “I was worried that you died.”
Long Shiyan turned toward the system and asked, “Where am I?”
“Screech.” The sound of a wooden door pushing open echoed. Long Shiyan glanced at the doorway and saw Zi Linglong moving inside with a basin of water. The system temporarily stopped talking.
Zi Linglong looked up and made eye contact with Long Shiyan. In her excitement, she almost dropped the basin. She quickly placed the basin on the table, rushed toward Long Shiyan, and sat on the edge of the bed. She wiped her tears and stammered, “Yan, Master, has finally woke up…”
“Don’t cry!” Long Shiyan extended her hand to wipe the tears off Zi Linglong’s eyes. “This is no problem. I’ll recover in a few days.”
Zi Linglong bit her lip and lowered her head as she did not speak.
At this moment, System Qian Qian suddenly popped out. “Host, you have been in a coma for more than half a month. Your life was hanging on a thread. If it wasn’t for your special constitution, then I wouldn’t know what could have happened to you.”
Half a month!?
Long Shiyan was a little shocked. She didn’t expect to be injured enough to be a coma for so long. No wonder Zi Linglong could barely speak. Just what happened during this period of time? How did Zi Linglong recover after she fainted?
System Qian Qian seemed to understand her thoughts and replied, “Although you have fainted, you also successfully sealed Zi Linglong’s Red Yin Demon Qi, then I went to find help.”
“Elder Sister Yan Yan, Zi’er will wipe you up.” Zi Linglong suddenly stood up, went to the table, sloshed a towel a few times in the basin, and returned to Long Shiyan’s side to wash her face.
“I quickly ran to the Long family house and was thinking about bringing the people of the Long family, but I didn’t think a major event was happening at the same time.” Long Shiyan paused for a bit, “Your Long family house…”
“Don’t say it!” Even though it hadn’t finished yet, a pale hand quickly grabbed it and chucked it out the window.
“Zi’er, you can see it!” Long Shiyan moved her gaze to Zi Linglong, her blood-red pupils were filled with astonishment.
“That…” Zi Linglong lowered her head, then softly confirmed Long Shiyan’s words as she gently wiped her hands.
System Qian Qian quickly flew back, and then hid behind Long Shiyan. It anxiously said, “Her body must have changed, otherwise, it would be impossible to see me. Oh, no! It’s a problem that she learned of my existence so early. Did I make a mistake?”
“Sorry, Mr. Pearl, Zi’er wants to wipe the body of Master Yan Yan, so I want to ask you to get out.” Zi Linglong’s blood-red pupils stared at the system. A strange red light flashed as if it was from the purgatory.
“Please don’t! While two petite loli’s bodies are nice to look at, I’m not a male, so don’t look at me like a predator would at its prey.” System Qian Qian was slightly dissatisfied. At this moment, Long Shiyan finished hearing all of its words and asked with a smile, “So, who were you talking about?”
“Uh, you know what…I will leave now.” System Qian Qian did a hollow chuckle and quickly escaped from the devil’s claws.
Zi Linglong looked at the disappearing pearl and then uncovered the blanket, revealing Long Shiyan’s lovely toned body. She changed the towel and wiped Long Shiyan’s body. “Master Yan Yan…I’m sorry!” Her little hand suddenly paused as she whispered in a low voice.
Long Shiyan blinked and looked at her.
“I’m sorry! I don’t know why, but my body suddenly didn’t listen to me.” She wiped her tears. “If it weren’t for me, then Master wouldn’t…”
“If it wasn’t for Linglong, then I don’t know what would have happened.” Long Shiyan stretched out her hand and wiped away the tears at the corner of Zi Linglong’s eyes. “I am very grateful to Little Linglong for saving me.”
Zi Linglong looked up at her, biting her lip and not speaking.
“Yeah.” Zi Linglong lowered her head and then continued to wipe Long Shiyan’s body with a warm towel. “Master’s body couldn’t accept light magic healing, so it could only be gradually healed.” She stroked Long Shiyan’s smooth belly, “But it’s okay now, the wounds are gone.”
“Linglong let a light magician heal me?” Long Shiyan looked at her in alarm. If she was treated while she was unconscious, it would produce the opposite effect of healing. Light and darkness had opposite properties that would restrain each other.
“Yeah.” Zi Linglong nodded lightly. “It was a beautiful big sister who treated you. She wasn’t a person from the Radiant Church. After discovering that the master had the dark attribute, she could only use ordinary medicine.”
“So…” Long Shiyan let her little sister wipe her thigh. She immersed herself in her thoughts before looking down at her body. While she had already been restored her original appearance, she was still weakened in health.
She was clearly injured. Of course, the burns caused by the flames were lessened. Now, she could only rely on her special physique to heal herself. If an ordinary ten-year-old child was in her situation, how many times would that child have died?
“That big sister didn’t despise my dark constitution?” Long Shiyan suddenly came to this issue. Zi Linglong lowered her eyebrows and wiped Long Shiyan’s calf as she replied. “She is a good friend of the Young Miss.”
“Yeah.” Zi Linglong nodded lightly. She got a hot towel. “She took care of me when I woke up.”
“Is that so!” Long Shiyan retracted her gaze, laid on her bed with her eyes closed, and then opened her eyes and looked at Zi Linglong. “Linglong, I have dark Douqi in my body! Shouldn’t you be afraid?”
“I’m not afraid at all!” Zi Linglong bit her lip and wiped Long Shiyan’s feet. After she had finished, she covered her with a blanket.
“Why bite your lip if you’re not afraid?” Long Shiyan raised her eyebrows. In this world, dark magic and dark Douqi were considered evil. Generally, people who possessed this kind of magic or Douqi would be faced with extreme hostility and would be disposed of.
Although their location was far east from the Radiant Church’s headquarters, the church’s influence was not weak. Zi Linglong’s facial expression revealed that she was aware of this.
When Zi Linglong gave her the blanket and heard what she said, she burst out with tears and spoke, “I was originally a ghost from the underworld. But the master who saved this evil spirit from the darkness is you. I don’t care if Master isn’t a good person. Even if Master is a bad person, then I will be a bad person with Master.”
“It’s not that big of a deal!” She choked with emotions.
Long Shiyan was astonished.
“After I transformed, I knew.” Zi Linglong calmed down, held a hand towel, and sat in front of her, but her face still had tears.
“Linglong, are you disappointed? I practice dark Douqi and refused the light. Do you really like me even though I am like this?” Long Shiyan stared at her. For the present Zi Linglong, there was no such thing as values. She had been walking in the dark world all her life. But even though she was eager for redemption, she had finally run into…
“I’m not disappointed!” Zi Linglong screamed as if she was angry.
“You can still respond so strongly!” Long Shiyan smiled. “You’re pouting!” Zi Linglong looked at her and then laughed at herself. She couldn’t say a single word in retort.
She thought that she’d be the only one that could act like an adult. She didn’t expect this servant girl to do the same! Long Shiyan tried not to smile, and unhurriedly spoke, “Is it really difficult to say ‘Zi Linglong believes that Elder Sister is a bad person’?”
Zi Linglong did not dare to look at her, but her actions revealed her thoughts clearly.
“Why does Linglong think that Elder Sister is a bad person?” said Long Shiyan. She then added another sentence, “After this, call me ‘Elder Sister’, not Master.”
“The people who have dark Douqi are all bad guys!” Zi Linglong finally said what was in her heart. She muttered under her breath before saying, “The master is not a villain. Master is only a child. I am the real bad guy. Of course, after growing up, maybe we’ll both be two big villains,” she said, holding up her fingers.
Long Shiyan: “…”
“Linglong,” Long Shiyan’s face became very serious as she said, “Elder Sister has something very important to tell you. You have to remember this.”
“This elder sister is a good person!”
