Princess Qian Qian, Luo Hua City Mistress and Yue Yu waited for one whole night and day, but Yue Yang and Yue Bing had not come back out. They were worried out of their wits.
Let alone the three of them, even Ye Kong, Fatty Hai and the Li Clan Brothers who came afterwards were all restless and fidgety. They had never seen anyone staying for so long inside. If it was another person other than Yue Yang, everyone would have felt despair and hopeless. Yue Yang and Yue Bing had originally entered the Gemini Temple yesterday afternoon, but even until sunset today, the two people still had not come back out.
According to their initial plans, clearing the Gemini Temple shouldn’t take more than two hours.
However, they were still not done even after one full day and night.
The Gold-armoured Guard Captain gave Princess Qian Qian and the others some food and drink to eat, but the three girls didn’t have any appetite to eat at all. They only held each other’s hands and encouraged each other, standing in front of the teleportation gate and continued to wait.
Ye Kong and Fatty Hai were so worried that they walked around in circles. However, they didn’t dare to comfort the girls, they were afraid that the three girls’ reason would collapse the moment they started talking. Until sunset the next day, Yue Yang and Yue Bing still had not come out, but that mysterious beauty who liked to read books had arrived, her eyes filled with worry. When she came, the four girls immediately hugged each other, and comforted Luo Hua City Mistress and Yue Yu whose eyes had turned red from crying, “It’s okay, we must have confidence that he will definitely be able to clear the trial!”
“It was all my fault for asking him to challenge the Twelve Zodiac Temples. Knowing fully well that he was challenging the Gemini Temple, I still encouraged him to clear it…” Princess Qian Qian hugged the mysterious beauty’s shoulders tightly. No matter how strong she was, she needed consolation from the mysterious beauty.
“If a man doesn’t face some trials in his life, how could he be successful in the future? Qian Qian, it’s not your fault. If it were me instead, I will also do the same, supporting his decision.” The mysterious beauty patted Princess Qian Qian’s back and said with an extremely determined and certain voice, “Maybe some problems occured, but I believe that he will be able to overcome them. Everyone, believe in me. He will definitely come back with his sister, he will!”
With such an affirmation from her, even Yue Yu who had the weakest willpower was greatly encouraged.
Luo Hua City Mistress slowly recovered the confidence she had with Yue Yang. She nodded towards the mysterious beauty, affirming her that she is okay now.
Princess Qian Qian secretly wiped away the tears on her face. She was about to say something when she saw rays of light suddenly shining from the teleportation gate. She immediately shouted happily, “They are back, they are finally back!”
A person covered in blood and injured all over suddenly charged out. As he had charged forward with too much force, he collided into Princess Qian Qian who was welcoming them and fell onto the ground.
The person who was covered in blood was Yue Yang indeed.
He was carrying Yue Bing on his back, whose face was also covered in blood. Some parts of the flesh at her thigh and back was completely disfigured, but her injuries was much better than Yue Yang’s. Furthermore, unlike Yue Yang, she didn’t immediately faint the moment they charged out. She was more clear-headed. When she saw Luo Hua City Mistress and her Second Sister Yue Yu, she immediately burst into tears. The mysterious beauty hurriedly carried her away and looked over Yue Yang’s wounds. She discovered that Yue Yang was heavily injured, and hurriedly signaled to Yue Yu, “Quick, heal him. Sister Luo Hua, here, carry Yue Bing. I will help Sister Yu… Ye Kong, you guys stay away and don’t make things worse. Give us space to save him… Okay, his heart rate and pulse is normal, he is not in danger of losing his life… Sister Yu, can you summon a [Healing Waterball]?”
Everyone was completely anxious and panicked, only the mysterious beauty was calm enough to handle the situation.
Yue Yu’s hands trembled as she summoned a [Healing Waterball], but Yue Yang’s injuries were far too severe. Her two or three [Healing Waterballs] were merely a cup of water thrown into a burning forest.
Ye Kong and Fatty Hai were about to break a Healing Crystal, but the mysterious beauty stopped them. This was because she discovered that forcefully healing Yue Yang’s injuries would not be good for his body. What he needed was healing from inside. As long as he had enough strength, his body had his own strong recovery abilities. Using the Healing Crystal to heal his wounds might even spoil his recovery later, which would not be a good thing.
The mysterious beauty slowly laid Yue Yang on the ground, carefully inspecting his wounds. She discovered claw marks, bite marks, stabbing marks, sting marks, blunt-weapon marks and other kinds of injuries. Other than his face, his whole body, chest and back, was all filled with injuries.
Princess Qian Qian calm her anxiety as she started to examine Yue Yang’s body up and down. She shouted happily, “His bones are all fine, he only had superficial injuries and suffered a shock on his internal organs!”
Luo Hua City Mistress also examined Yue Bing quickly and nodded, “Bing-er is also okay… What had actually happened? Bing-er, why did you guys stayed inside for so long? What had actually happened?”
Yue Bing cried out when she heard Luo Hua City Mistress’ question, “In the Virgo Temple, there are doubles of mom, Shuang-er and myself. They are all similar to the shadows in the Gemini Temple, they are the ones who turned brother into this! The moment we entered, the Virgo Temple’s teleportation gate immediately disappeared. We have no way to leave, so brother carried me continuously as we ran away. We don’t know how long had passed before the teleportation gate finally re-appeared again. Brother hurriedly escaped while carrying me!”
“What?” Princess Qian Qian and the others froze when they heard her.
Didn’t Yue Yang and Yue Bing challenged the Gemini Temple?
How did they go to the Virgo Temple? Could it be that this brat had cleared the Gemini Temple, Cancer Temple and Leo Temple, before charging towards the Virgo Temple straight away?
The mysterious beauty immediately carried Yue Yang and gave Luo Hua City Mistress and Princess Qian Qian a glance. It would not be good for them to discuss this matter in public. Yue Yu quickly reacted and covered Yue Bing’s mouth as she consoled her, “Bing-er, good girl, let’s go back first and we can discuss this again at home!”
Ye Kong, Fatty Hai and the others were completely frozen, they could only come back to their senses after a long time.
In the end, when they saw the mysterious beauty carrying Yue Yang and walking away, they immediately followed behind.
The Gold-armoured Guard Captain approached them quickly and said, “You guys, leave this place quickly and forget everything that happened here!”
Fatty Hai had wanted to shout “Stop meddling into our business”, but seeing the serious expression on the Gold-armoured Guard Captain’s face gave him a fright, and he hurriedly nodded.
When Ye Kong and the others left, the Silver-armoured Guards couldn’t help but to start talking, “Which Temple did they challenge? Why did they say Virgo Temple? Didn’t they challenge the Gemini Temple at first?”
“What are you guys gossiping about? Is this kind of thing something you can talk about?” The Gold-armoured Guard Captain shouted at them sternly.
“No, we are just…” Some of the Silver-armoured Guards were so frightened that they started to stutter.
“Forget everything here!” The Gold-armoured Guard Captain suddenly took out a Crystal Staff that was specially carved with a rune and raised it up high. In an instant, a white light a thousand times stronger than sunlight engulfed the whole area outside the Twelve Zodiac Temples in its sea of light. Ten seconds later, the Gold-armoured Guard Captain’s Crystal Staff disappeared without a trace along with the blinding white light.
On the other hand, all the silver-armoured Guards collapsed onto the ground.
The Gold-armoured Guard Captain kicked them awake one by one, shouting loudly, “What the heck are you guys doing? How dare you sleep during your duty?”
The Silver-armoured Guards hurriedly got up, their faces filled with panic and confusion as they completely couldn’t remember how they fell asleep on the ground during their duty. However, they didn’t dare to ask much and hurriedly went to their designated post, continuing to guard the Twelve Zodiac Temple’s entrance diligently.
Despite this, the Gold-armoured Guard Captain was still insecure, attentively observing each and everyone of the Silver-armoured Guards eyes, afraid that their memories had not been erased completely.
At the Windchime Inn, Ye Kong, Fatty Hai and the Li Clan Brothers all circled around outside the residence.
Inside the residence, they couldn’t be of help at all.
However, they wouldn’t feel assured if they didn’t stay here to wait for news.
After a long while, the mysterious beauty and Princess Qian Qian finally came out. When they saw Ye Kong and the others quickly approaching them, the mysterious beauty immediately shook her hands, “You guys, don’t worry. Yue Yang is alright now. However, it seemed like he would need more time to completely recover. Now, you guys should immediately return to the Ivy Academy and train yourselves as per norm. Go and participate in the Hundred Schools Elite Tournament, we will also quickly return back as soon as possible. Other than Grandma Wu Teng, Principal and Vice Principal, don’t tell anyone else about Yue Yang clearing the trials. It would be best if less people know about this matter. If you can find Yi Nan, tell her to come here quickly. She seemed to be an expert in healing too, so she should be able to help to heal Yue Yang’s injuries and speed up his recovery.”
“Understood.” When Ye Kong heard this, he was extremely moved.
As long as Yue Yang was fine, then everything was fine.
Fatty Hai was even more touched. It seemed like whatever Yue Bing said just now was true. Yue Yang had really cleared the Gemini Temple all the way to the Virgo Temple.
Otherwise, Yue Yang would not receive such serious injuries.
Of course, Fatty Hai believed in Yue Yang’s abnormal body and abilities. Such injuries was nothing much to him, maybe it actually meant nothing to him. He should just go back and wait for Yue Yang’s good news!
Fatty Hai and Ye Kong looked at each other for a moment before hurriedly turning around and making their way out.
The Li Clan Brothers were more respectful, bowing towards the mysterious beauty and Princess Qian Qian before they left.
Their bow also had a hidden meaning of leaving Yue Yang’s safety to their care.
Returning to the residence, the mysterious beauty made a shocking declaration, “Yue Yu will take care of Bing-er while the three of us will help Yue Yang to bandage his injuries… His internal injury has almost recovered due to his good foundation as an Innate. It’s just that his superficial injuries are a little troublesome. We must quickly clean his wounds and bandage it up. Luo Hua, Qian Qian, let’s not hesitate anymore. Let’s throw our reservations and modesty out for a moment. All of us have a clear conscience anyway. Come here and help!”
Seeing the mysterious beauty carrying Yue Yang into the bathroom, Luo Hua City Mistress gritted her teeth lightly and followed in.
Princess Qian Qian, on the other hand, was still hesitating, unable to make her decision.
She went out to the door, then turned around again and sat on the chair, then stood up again.
Yue Yu had just carried Yue Bing into her room to bandage her wounds, but when she saw Princess Qian Qian’s worried expression, she hurriedly came out. Princess Qian Qian lowered her head and refused to look Yue Yu in the eyes as she spoke her words without meaning it, “Sister Yu, I think it will be better for me to help you instead!”
“Qian Qian, what are you still hesitating about in this situation? Quickly go and save Yue Yang!” Seeing Princess Qian Qian’s sad expression made Yue Yu sad too.
“Yue Yang and I, we are not even engaged. Furthermore, he is more or less okay. I won’t help him to bandage his wounds, let me help you instead!” Princess Qian Qian had a tomboy personality, she was outspoken and straightforward. However, she was actually very shy inside, and she couldn’t throw away her face easily. It wasn’t that she didn’t have any feelings towards Yue Yang, but Yue Yang didn’t even promise her anything officially. She was afraid that she would become enemies with her sisters because of Yue Yang. She didn’t want to become a shameless woman who stole others’ husbands.
“You are thinking too much. Didn’t we agree that our sisterhood is stronger than anything? It’s all my little brother’s fault, he is stubborn and he has the mentality to get whatever he wanted. How long do you think you can avoid him for? Qian Qian, be a good girl, just go and save my little brother now, I beg you!” Yue Yu knew that Qian Qian was very shy, she needed herself to give her a push. She hurriedly tried to coax Qian Qian and pushed her towards the bathroom.
When they opened the door, the two girls realized that Luo Hua was trying to take off Yue Yang’s trousers with trembling hands.
Yue Yu immediately turned around and left, leaving Princess Qian Qian staring at the scene foolishly, dumbstruck.
The mysterious beauty was examining Yue Yang’s head. She was extremely focused as she called out to Princess Qian Qian to ask for her help without even turning to look at her, “Sister Luo Hua is in charge of cleaning the wounds, Qian Qian, go and check his crucial parts, see if he was injured at those parts…”
Princess Qian Qian almost fainted when she heard that, “You are asking me to check? Wu Xia, why don’t you ask Sister Luo Hua to do that? I don’t understand how to check it at all!”
“I also don’t!” Luo Hua City Mistress blushed furiously as she waved her hands panickedly.
“You both, you make me speechless.” The mysterious beauty took in a deep breath as she calmed her trembling heart. She quickly took off Yue Yang’s last piece of clothing and resist her shame with great difficulties to touch him for a while. She then spoke out with an uncertain voice, “Seems like he was not injured here at all. I have no knowledge about this part, so I couldn’t be 100% sure. You two come and examine this for a while, everyone should verify together to ensure that this part of his is alright!”
“Wu Xia, if you say he wasn’t injured then we’ll believe you. We really don’t understand at all!” Luo Hua City Mistress was as red as a lobster, but out of concern and curiosity, she still stole a few glances.
“What if I’m not here? There will be only the two of you. Would you just let him die? Come over here and help. No matter how you two try to resist, this brat will also take advantage of you sooner or later. Don’t be difficult now, I beg you two to learn to have the responsibility of becoming his future wife… Your precious darling is seriously injured, why are you still clinging to your pride? Come over here, quick!” The mysterious beauty rolled her eyes as she covered Yue Yang’s waist with a towel. She then quickly use [Healing Water] to cleanse Yue Yang’s wound-covered body.
Seeing that Yue Yang had been covered with a towel, Luo Hua City Mistress hurriedly went over to help.
Princess Qian Qian watched dumbstruck for a while, only returning to her senses after a while later as she quickly went over to help.
The three girls worked together, but at the start, their teamwork was not very good.
They were completely flustered.
But as Luo Hua City Mistress and Princess Qian Qian slowly calmed down, the three girls co-operated more smoothly. One washed Yue Yang’s wounds, the other wiped it clean slowly, while the last one quickly bandaged it… In the end, even though the towel was put away, the three girls still busily treat Yue Yang’s wounds, ignoring that part of him. When mysterious beauty finally carried Yue Yang, whose wounds had all been bandaged well, back into the room, Princess Qian Qian and Luo Hua City Mistress could finally sigh a breath of relief as they leaned against each other and sat on the bathroom floor weakly.
Their face had continued to blush for a long time.
Previously, they didn’t have time to think because they were focused on treating Yue Yang.
Now that they had finished treating Yue Yang, when they remembered everything that they had seen just now, when they remembered Yue Yang’s male part which was completely different from a girl’s, they couldn’t help but to feel an embarrassment that caused them to blush to their ears.
Yue Yang slept very soundly, not knowing that Luo Hua, Qian Qian and the mysterious beauty had seen every nook and corner of his body.
Of course, even if he knew about it, he would probably not mind it at all.
Go ahead and see if you want, we would need to see each other sooner or later anyway…
On the second day, when Yue Yang woke up, he discovered Luo Hua City Mistress’s head lying right on his bedside, sleeping. Princess Qian Qian, on the other hand, was sleeping with her body against the wall. On the floor, Yue Bing was sleeping on top of a snow-white rug, her legs even kicking her blanket away. His cousin Yue Yu seemed to be busy cooking in the kitchen. Yue Yang swept a glance across the room, feeling as if someone was missing. He remembered that before he passed out yesterday, he seemed to see that mysterious beauty who liked to read books amongst the people waiting for him outside. Where did she go?
In the morning, Yue Yang was still feeling very weak. He had lost a lot of blood after all.
However, in the afternoon, after drinking three huge bowls of meat broth, Yue Yang felt his body recovering better, especially after Xiao Wen Li came out and released a ball of pure light to him. Yue Yang immediately stood up from the bed and rushed into the bathroom, feeling an urgent nature’s call. When he took off his pants, he immediately screamed in alarm, “Who bandaged this part of mine? My god, that person even tied a ribbon knot! This part of mine was not injured at all, you know!”
Luo Hua City Mistress and Princess Qian Qian who heard Yue Yang’s screams from inside the room started to blush furiously.
Seems like the bandage was their masterpiece.
On the other hand, Yue Bing didn’t understand anything at all. She blinked her eyes as if she was curious and wanted to ask which part of Yue Yang was not injured but was bandaged. Seeing Yue Bing’s pure, innocent and curious expression, Princess Qian Qian, Luo Hua City Mistress and Yue Yu were greatly distressed.
For the sake of changing the topic, Yue Yu immediately asked Yue Bing, “Bing-er, what actually happened yesterday? Tell us quickly!”
