The man stroked her cheek gently and said in a soft voice: “This is good as well. You don’t remember me anymore and you no longer have to suffer pain.”
“You know me? Who are you?” Seeing that the man was gradually disappearing, Qing Lan Fei reached her hands out in a panic, grasping nothing but air.
“Fei Er, I will always be watching over you.”
At the point just before he disappeared, the man merely left her with those words.
Qing Lan Fei sat up suddenly in bed from shock, her back soaked in sweat.
In agony, she cradled her head in her arms and whimpered softly, the tiny sound awakening Ah Yue who was sleeping not too faraway. Peering through barely open eyes still groggy with sleep, she immediately saw that scene. Scrambling out from her bed in a hurry, the little girl asked worriedly: “Sis Fei, what’s wrong?”
“My head hurts…..” Qing Lan Fei clenched her teeth tight, pausing between each word that came out.
“Did you manage to remember something?” Ah Yue asked carefully.
“I….. think I dreamt of a person, who felt so familiar, but I cannot remember who he is.” Qing Lan Fei muttered softly.
A smile came onto Ah Yue’s face. “It is a good sign that someone familiar to you appeared in your mind Sis Fei. I think it will not be long that you will slowly start to regain your memory.”
Qing Lan Fei was rather dazed as she looked at the little girl. “Really?”
“Of course! I will never lie to you.” Ah Yue said with a laugh.
Qing Lan Fei’s headache had faded away slightly and upon hearing the little girl’s words, she felt somewhat comforted. “Hope that happens.”
Ah Yue saw that the woman was still as beautiful even with her brows furrowed together and could not help but be mesmerized for a moment. [When would she be able to grow up quickly and it will be great if she can be as beautiful as Sis Fei.]
As she continued to fantasize, she suddenly remembered what her grandfather had said to her earlier that day. She opened her mouth and said a little worriedly: “Sis Fei, you must remember to remain inside the tent for the next few days, and not wander your way outside!”
The Barbarian Tribe disliked people who were not from their tribe and that was why Ah Yue had kept Qing Lan Fei so carefully hidden all this time. As every tent maintained quite a distance between each other, Qing Lan Fei had gone outside the tent before, and had never been discovered. But in the next few days, it would be highly inadvisable for her to go outside.
Hearing the grave tone in the little girl’s voice, Qing Lan Fei asked puzzledly: “What happened?”
Ah Yue bit on her lip, looking like she was hesitant to speak.
“It’s not convenient for you to tell me? Then I will not probe. I will just remain inside.” Qing Lan Fei said understandingly.
“It really isn’t anything that I can’t tell you. I heard from Grandfather that the Tribe Chieftain seemed to have been possessed, his temperament greatly changed, becoming absolutely ruthless. I am afraid that if you happen to accidentally bump into him, he will surely have you killed.” Ah Yue said, her heart filled with dread.
“That’s right. I am planning to go have a look at the Tribe Chieftain tomorrow to see whether he has fallen into devilry while cultivating. Our Tribe Chieftain is actually a very kind person, and rarely has he even lost his temper, much less turning into someone like that…..”
