Chapter 105.1 : Paradise City
Mu Lai’s eyes grew unnoticeably red rimmed. Never had she thought that there would be a day that such a proud girl like her would come to trust and depend on someone so much, and neither had she ever thought that she would be so fortunate to have a friend that cared about her as much as she cared for them.
That caused a corner of the rock hard heart of the always cold and aloof girl who had always kept to herself to slowly melt and and soften.
“There are so many rooms here in the Eternal Peace Duke Manor. I’ll have someone get one ready for you to stay here. There is no way I am letting you go stay outside in an inn after you came such a long way here.”
Qing Yu did not wait for her to reply before she went ahead to make the arrangements. Mu Lai was rather taken aback but she did not refuse, but just merely curled up her lips in a smile. She had always been the one acting dominantly over others and she had never thought that she would see the day that someone could be so bossy and tyrannical towards her.
Although this kind of tyranny was something she would gladly accept.
After saying that, Qing Yu immediately instructed the servants to get the room ready. It was only after she was finished with making the arrangements that she came to realize something. “You said that you were thinking to use your spirit essence to keep a little ghost capable of gathering energies. From what I know, only Exorcists would keep and rear little spirit ghosts with them. Did you come here to the Imperial Capital to find an exorcist?”
Mu Lai nodded her head. “I received news that there is a highly mysterious Ghost Cavern here helmed and controlled by a powerful Exorcist, but no one knows where the entrance into the place is.”
“Ghost Cavern?” Qing Yu was a little surprised. “How can such a place exist in such close proximity to the bustling Imperial Capital? Isn’t he afraid that he will be discovered and his nest gets busted?”
“Because the place is so mysterious, it still has not been discovered till today. So I was thinking of getting a person I know from this area to help look into it for me.” Mu Lai sighed mournfully. “No matter what, I must definitely save my father.”
“Don’t worry. I will help you.” Qing Yu said reassuringly as she patted Mu Lai on her hand. Her eyes then flashed with a glint, suddenly having thought of a good idea.
Hence that very night, Bai Zhi Yan who had just finished battling Lou Jun Yao over a few games of chess quickly felt that something wasn’t right the moment he returned to his room. There was a small little shadow was crouched above his window…… What in the world is that?
It was only when he went closer that he saw that it was a cute and adorable little creature whose body was completely snowy white.
It had a pair of blue eyes large and round, its tiny ears sharp and pointed, and a short bobbly tail. It looked both like a cat and a fox at the same time and it was just so unbelievably beautiful and adorable that even Bai Zhi Yan was almost swooning from its cuteness. The little fella was just crouched there obediently, looking rather bored as it puffed up its cheeks to blow bubbles.
“Little cutie, where did you come from?” Bai Zhi Yan exclaimed softly, his face looking highly benign and harmless as he approached the creature.
The little beast blinked its large eyes and stretched a paw up to ruffle its ear. [Hmm….. Seductive and evil looks, dressed in full red robes. Mm. This should be the right guy!]
As that thought rose up in its mind, it then stretched out its tiny paws, and brought them up right in front of his face, to reveal a tiny ball of paper right before his eyes.
Bai Zhi Yan was stunned for a moment, unable to react at all.
The little beast looked highly impatient as it then rolled its eyes before it tossed the ball of paper onto the table. Its tiny body then shot like a bolt that arced through the sky in a beam of light, disappearing in an instant.
Bai Zhi Yan snapped back to his senses and then turned to look at the ball of paper on the table. [Who sent that?]
He had just picked the ball of paper and spread it open but had not even had the chance to read it when he saw Lou Jun Yao pushing the door to come in. His eyes gazed lazily out of the window as he then asked: “What was that that just went out from your window?”
“How did you know?” Bai Zhi Yan asked in bewilderment.
In the end, his question immediately earned him a contemptuous rebuke. “You did not even feel that clear fluctuation of spirit energy at all?”
