Seeing that Long Shiyan did not speak, Zi Linglong could not help but call out once again, but she still did not answer.
After thinking for a while, she moved from her position. Bypassing the trunk, she moved to Long Shiyan’s side and then hugged her little body.
It was extremely easy for her to do this. There was no resistance, and her movements were smooth. Obviously, her skills in approaching Long Shiyan had already reached the point of perfection.
Long Shiyan raised her head and glanced at her. She then closed her eyes once again since she was too lazy to speak.
Long Shiyan still did not answer.
Long Shiyan did not move a single muscle.
“Head of the Group?”
Long Shiyan adjusted her position into a more comfortable posture.
Long Shiyan laughed a bit, lazily leaning against her. She was currently feeling very comfortable as her strength and motivation to speak went away. She was too lazy to answer.
When she saw that Long Shiyan ignored her, she couldn’t help but puff her cheeks and threaten her, “If Master does not care about Ling’er, then Ling’er might need to coerce her!”
Long Shiyan finally opened her eyes and made a single remark in an admonishing tone. “I don’t want to yield to you. If you dare bother me…I will deduct your pocket money—no! I will also deduct your group member wages.”
“Oh…” Zi Linglong dragged her voice out and began to count her funds one by one. “I still have a lot of pocket money that Master gave me before. I can probably hold on for around three months. But that doesn’t include the group member wages that I have received over time.”
Zi Linglong mumbled.
“One year?” Long Shiyan was stupefied as she looked at her with a doubtful gaze. “It can’t be that you haven’t been spending your money at all. How could you still have around a year’s worth of money? That’s not a small amount. ”
After a while, Zi Linglong said, “Other than for my weapons and equipment, my daily expenses aren’t very high. I only use them to buy food or gifts for Master, otherwise, the money isn’t very useful to me.
Usually, students would invite me to eat or take me out to play something, so I normally don’t need to spend any money at all. We can even make our own clothes since the materials are provided by the clothing department for free. Furthermore, female students often send me food. Elder Sister also has a share, but they were all sent by other female students and upperclassmen. It has been slowly accumulating for more than a year!” She contemplated while dragging her words on.
Long Shiyan: “…”
“But Elder Sister, you should really stop! You don’t say hello nor tell me what you’re going to do. You never come out to play. The only thing you do is cultivation, cultivation, cultivation, reading, reading, and even more reading, just like how all nerds do. You don’t even have many good friends who are willing to talk to you.” Zi Linglong grabbed her soft hand and said with a gloomy expression.
Long Shiyan: “…”
“Elder Sister, when we return to the school, you should go with us to see the Holy Spirit Heavenly Springs, where you can get rid of fatigue and play with Daliana. It will be fun.” Zi Linglong pinched her thigh and continued, “Don’t just sit down and cultivate or read all day long, or else your body is going to become rusty.”
Long Shiyan: “…”
“Isn’t that right, Little Qian?” Zi Linglong squatted and asked the system on her head.
(TLN: Combination of Qian Qian and MM, and MM is slang for Meimei, little sister, or little miss in a teasing tone.)
System Qian Qian couldn’t help but roll her eyes. She wrapped her arms around her thighs and indifferently replied, “You don’t know the host’s situation. If you let her go to that place, with her super cute appearance, she will destroy the atmosphere of the group. Then, the outcome will be terrible. You also have to remember that the host is shy.”
“Why should you be shy? Everyone, there definitely will be at least one girl, even if Elder Sister’s body is…” Her words stopped as she seemed distracted; it was difficult to say the next words. Immersed in her thoughts, her eyes could not help but redden.
Long Shiyan said, “It’s not what you think, I am not that vulnerable to let my current form affect me.”
“Elder Sister doesn’t need to be upset,” Zi Linglong resumed. “Nowadays, you’re much better. It used to be difficult to hug Elder Sister, but now, it’s easy and very comfortable to hold your body,” she said. She couldn’t help but touch Long Shiyan’s soft body; she liked it very much.
Long Shiyan completely ignored her groping and calmly said, “I don’t really feel the same way though. Will just hugging and kissing me make you happy?”
“No.” Zi Linglong shook her head and hurriedly argued, “Ling’er isn’t thinking of those kinds of thoughts, she just likes the current Elder Sister.” She had no choice but to concede to Long Shiyan’s stubborn beliefs, but she had to admit that she hoped her sister will always stay like this forever. She didn’t know why she felt that way. Of course, she also felt distressed and conflicted by these thoughts.
“Okay, okay, Elder Sister doesn’t feel that she is lacking compared to others because of her body. Instead, Elder Sister agrees with you. Besides, Elder Sister is starting to like her own small body,” Long Shiyan answered helplessly.
Yes, there were both advantages and disadvantages to her current body. She wasn’t serious when she said she didn’t think her body was as great as Zi Linglong believed it was. Nowadays, her body was better than an ordinary one. The most important benefit was, of course, her constitution’s vitality and rapid recovery. She no longer full-heartedly abhorred her constitution since there was no telling how many times it saved her.
Of course, her everyday life was pretty good with this body. Since her body was still that of a ten-year old’s, she won’t ever get a period, which saved her a lot of trouble. In her past life, she suffered from her menstruation periods because she couldn’t eat properly and always felt irritated.
Sometimes, when she was in danger and the other side was a shady person, she could use her cute charms to take care of the situation. It was also convenient to pretend to be an innocent child from time to time.
Although it was slightly regrettable that she couldn’t grow up, it wasn’t completely unbearable. As for beauty, marriage, and childbirth, she didn’t need any of those at all. No! It could be said that she was wholeheartedly engrossed with finishing her “missions.”
Furthermore, she had leisure time outside of completing tasks or seeking worldly desires.
“Since that’s not the reason, why doesn’t Elder Sister want to go to the Holy Spirit Heavenly Springs? It’s very beneficial for cultivation.” Zi Linglong appeared puzzled, looking down at the unperturbed Long Shiyan. She really didn’t understand what was going on in her sister’s mind, no, it could be said that sometimes, she was better off not knowing.
Before Long Shiyan opened her mouth, the system above them flapped her wings and said, “Little Linglong shouldn’t pursue this matter any longer. Your elder sister is the type of person who everyone swarms around because of how charming she is. If she went to that kind of crowded place, I don’t know how many perverted senior sisters will become enamored and twisted in sexual orientation by her appearance. If that happened, we must have a moment of silence for those poor souls.
Besides, your elder sister is, in reality, a great pervert as well. This should already be obvious. Little Linglong, you must be careful. If not, then she will whip you and then gobble you up. Before you realize what calamity you brought upon yourself, it will be too late. ”
Long Shiyan’s complexion was filled with black lines.
(TLN: The black lines you see in manga/anime when a character feels depressed or shocked)
While speaking together, the topic became strange. She wanted Zi Linglong to grow up normal and forget about the bad things. But how could she explain what the system said without leading Zi Linglong astray?
Indeed, Long Shiyan was completely treating Zi Linglong as a child, probably because she wanted to retain her pure mentality. Long Shiyan would completely handle the bad things herself while leaving Zi Linglong in a safe and good environment so she could slowly forget her past lifestyle.
Although she couldn’t completely forget, it was still possible to gradually cultivate her character. After all, the environment around one could possibly change that individual.
Providing Long Shiyan with the opportunity to make friends with others was just a decision she came up with on a whim. However, she did not expect it would create such a commotion. It was truly shocking. In the end, she could only slowly give up.
Until now, she did not regret her decisions. She wanted to cherish her fun life on campus even though she already understood how terrible the outside world was. Shouldn’t this be fine?
However, she always felt that she needed to grow up and become independent as if she needed to leave her nest and spread out her wings. But, she was reluctant to do so.
“Hahaha, Qian Qian, you’re so funny.” Zi Linglong laughed. “If my sister really can eat me, I will let her. I am afraid that she might be too small to eat me, so it should be me who can eat her.”
System Qian Qian snorted twice and said, “Little Linglong, don’t say that. If you could really eat your elder sister, then I will change my name into Qian Mei and grant three of your wishes.”
“Okay, okay. Be obedient and go to sleep.” Zi Linglong suddenly reached out and touched the system on her head. “If I wanted to eat my sister, it would still be impossible to. Even if I really could swallow her, I won’t. You’re really a naughty child.”
“Zi Linglong, you’re too pure and innocent. I think it is about time for you to expand your world views. I have a book that you should take a look at. Then, you will know the meaning of what ‘being eaten’ is.” System Qian Qian touched Zi Linglong’s larger hand and helplessly said.
“Okay, I’ll leave now.” Long Shiyan couldn’t take it anymore. She had to temporarily appease these two small spoiled children, otherwise, who knew what they’d do in the future.
