Chapter 525: Blood-grown Carrots
Yun Jiuge looked at this vibrant scene and was inexplicably happy.
She didn’t want to disturb the human-beast hybrids who were working, so she covered her body with Moon Spirit Silk Thread and walked along the fence.
When passing by the human-rabbit hybrid territory, she happened to see the Rabbit Clan Leader walking under his stilted building. He seemed to be watering.
Yun Jiuge took a closer look and found that the field was planted with carrots.
After the Black Rain Disaster, countless edible plants died, and only powerful weeds were left.
Now that only human-rabbit hybrids were able to plant carrots in Yun City, she felt that it was necessary to take a closer look.
Yun Jiuge jumped off the fence and removed the disguise, pretending to casually pass by the door of the human-rabbit hybrid clan.
“Miss Yun, why have you come? Quickly, come in and sit down,” Guo’er greeted her excitedly once she saw her.
The Rabbit Clan Leader who had just been watering the plants came over and invited Yun Jiuge to enter.
Other busy human-rabbit hybrids also rushed over and looked at her, full of respect.
“How is living here like?” Yun Jiuge asked as she entered the human-rabbit hybrid territory with a light smile.
“It’s very good here, thank you for giving us such a secure territory,” replied the Elder Rabbit, who was genuinely happy. After the Black Rain Disaster, they had not felt so safe and relaxed for a very long time.
“That’s good, please go back to work. I’ll just talk to the Clan Leader for a moment,” Yun Jiuge said, waving her hands and shooing the human-rabbit hybrids back to work.
“Miss Yun, this way please.” The Rabbit Clan Leader thought that Yun Jiuge had something to discuss with her and took her to her stilted building.
The Clan Leader’s stilted building was at the farthest corner of their territory. Other than a bunch of dried blue radish leaves hanging at the door, it was no different from other human-rabbit hybrids’ stilted buildings.
Yun Jiuge didn’t go upstairs but went directly to the first floor.
The Rabbit Clan Leader hurried in, and said with a smile, “This place is dirty and broken, there’s nothing to look at.”
“Is that so? I think that you’re very good at growing carrots here,” Yun Jiuge said while smiling.
The Rabbit Clan Leader froze, then smiled and said, “I really can’t hide anything from you. These carrots are planted for the young clan members to eat. They’ve just been planted and will take at least a month to grow. If it successfully grows, I’ll give you some to try.”
“What method did you use to plant it?” Yun Jiuge casually asked.
“I just planted them randomly. The land here is fertile, and we should be able to plant it successfully!” said the Elder Rabbit.
But Yun Jiuge sniffed the air and immediately frowned. She asked, “Did you grow the carrots with blood?”
The Rabbit Clan Leader was stunned and did not answer for a long while.
“I found that the weeds in your territory are growing very well. Are you also growing them with blood?” Yun Jiuge asked, looking directly into the eyes of the Rabbit Clan Leader.
“No.” The Rabbit Clan Leader smiled bitterly and said, “We’re not blood rabbits. How can we use blood to water everything? I’ve no choice. Newborn rabbits can only eat carrots.”
“Have you always used blood to grow them?” Yun Jiuge asked.
“No, we only watered them with blood because the carrots would no longer grow after the Black Rain Disaster,” the Rabbit Clan Leader said as she shook her head.
“What about before the Black Rain Disaster?” Yun Jiuge continued asking.
“At that time, as long as we regularly watered them, the carrots would grow,” the Rabbit Clan Leader said. This was why she hated the Black Rain Disaster.
“How about this, let me give you a task. Use two more plots of land to grow the carrots. On one plot of land, sprinkle water on them. On the other plot of land, use your feces,” Yun Jiuge said. She wanted to do an experiment to see how different the carrots grown from these three different plots of land were.
“If we use feces to water the carrots, wouldn’t it make them dirty?” The Rabbit Clan Leader asked hesitantly, unsure of Yun Jiuge’s intention.
“Animal feces is a good source of nutrients for the land,” Yun Jiuge said. She saw that the Rabbit Clan Leader was confused and explained to her how to ferment feces. She then said encouragingly, “Try it, you might make a new discovery.”
“Okay, I’ll ask the clan members to give it a try,” the Rabbit Clan Leader said and nodded seriously.
She could sense that the information that Yun Jiuge had just given her was very important.
“As a reward, I’ll give these cabbage seeds to you. You can try growing them when you’re free,” said Yun Jiuge. She took out cabbage seeds commonly found in the mortal world from the Magical Bottomless Bag. She had collected them back then before the riots in Lei Kingdom.
This cabbage was easy to grow, and its yield was high. After growing, it would make a good source of food.
“Thank you, Miss Yun,” the Rabbit Clan Leader said as she took the vegetable seeds respectfully. She felt that she was being valued, and spoke kindly to Yun Jiuge.
“Don’t tell anyone else about using blood to grow carrots, understand?” Yun Jiuge warned her seriously.
If carrots grown from rabbit blood had any special effect, then these rabbits must be well protected. Otherwise, this might lead to trouble.
“Miss Yun, don’t worry, only you know about this,” the Rabbit Clan Leader said. She was not a fool, and this carrot field was a secret even within their clan. No one knew about it except the elders.
“That’s good. Please take care of your health. Your clan members still need you,” Yun Jiuge said. She looked at the knife marks hidden under the Elder Rabbit’s skin and admired her self-sacrificial spirit.
The Rabbit Clan Leader smiled. She was very grateful for Yun Jiuge’s concern.
Yun Jiuge left under the warm gaze of the human-rabbit hybrid clan and went directly to find Yin Shili.
Yin Shili, his wife and his children were laying bricks in a circle. Beside him, Feifei worked hard to convert the barren land into fertile land.
After Zi Shang had built the city and taken Feifei away that day, this little black and white butterfly had been constantly working diligently and was just like a Divine Beast in the eyes of the human-beast hybrids who worshipped her.
“Master, look at how I’ve created a lot of fertile lands,” Feifei said as she saw Yun Jiuge. She immediately flapped her wings while flying past, full of pride.
“Good job.” Yun Jiuge encouragingly patted Feifei’s head and fed her a few Cherry Pills.
Feifei swallowed the Cherry Pills and went right back to work.
It now had a sense of purpose. The more fertile land it created, the more crops could be grown. This would save many human-beast hybrid lives.
“Miss Yun, why have you come here?” Yin Shili asked. He finished laying the brick and walked over while his wife and children continued on.
“I want you to help me create an Illusion,” Yun Jiuge said straightforwardly.
“My Yin Yang Qi has been completely expended in building the wall. I’m afraid I can’t create an Illusion!” Yin Shili said and frowned. Zi Shang was tragically exploiting him to build the wall.
“I’ll create the Spell Formation first. You’ll just need to input some Yin Yang Qi into it. Not much effort is needed,” Yun Jiuge said. She couldn’t bear to use the little bit Holy Power that she had, so she came to find Yin Shili.
“Okay!” said Yin Shili, who was just complaining for the sake of it. He had not forgotten that Fan Yin had told him to obey all of Yun Jiuge’s instructions.
