“Rumeng, what kind of nonsense are you talking?” Nalan Ruyue knocked the head of her little sister as she reprimanded.
“Aiyo, I am not talking nonsense, stingy big sister.” Nalan Rumeng pouted.
“I am stingy? You, do you know what ‘serving’ means?” Nalan Ruyue said feeling irritated.
“Of course, I know, if brother-in-law serves me, then, hereafter, if someone bullies me, I can look for brother-in-law for help, if I want to go anywhere to play, he will take me there, if I want to eat something, then he will buy me foods to eat, moreover, he will help me to catch butterflies and smash cockroaches.” Nalan Rumeng said while counting on her fingers.
As for Long Yi, the more he listened the more wrong he felt, as it turned out, this girl had interpreted him serving her as becoming her slave, truly was preposterous.
“Stop, go look for other people to serve you, this brother-in-law is very busy, I don’t have much time to accompany you.” Long Yi wiped the cold sweat from his forehead and said with a smile.
“Ximen Yu, I think, seeing you serving my little sister should be very amusing.” Nalan Ruyue looked at Long Yi with provocation.
“Good, good, now I can hug brother-in-law to sleep every day.” Nalan Rumeng happily laughed.
“Eh, now, it’s already late, so shouldn’t we go eat the dinner? Ximen Yu, didn’t you say you will take us to eat barbeque at the beach?” Nalan Ruyue hastily changed the subject of the conversation hearing her little sister’s words.
At this time, the sun had already sunk into the western horizon and there was only a magnificent gleam of sunset glow at the horizon, moreover, a part of the moon had also come out of the layer of cloud.
Long Yi sneaked out of the palace with this pair of sisters and came to a secluded sandy beach. After that, he lit a bonfire and from his space ring, he took out birds he had caught in the sky and fishes he had caught in the sea. Now the materials were plentiful, Long Yi skillfully began to wash these games, then began roasting them placing on the frame above the bonfire.
At the seaside, a light breeze brought about a salty and humid flavor. But at this time, Long Yi was turning over the roasted meat while thinking about how to mention the matter of leaving for Lightning God Forbidden Area to Nalan Ruyue, moreover, tomorrow was the date of agreement with Wushuang.
“Ximen Yu, what are you thinking?” Nalan Ruyue saw Long Yi was somewhat absent-minded, so she couldn’t help asking.
“I am thinking about you.” Long Yi raised his head and said.
“Who believes you, keep your sweet words to your other women. By the way, you still have yet to tell me where you were last night.” Although Nalan Ruyue said so but there was a sweet smile on her face.
“Last night? I went on a date with a mermaid.” Long Yi said with a smile.
“If you don’t want to tell, then forget it. Even if you don’t tell me, I know that you were definitely philandering, humph.” Nalan Ruyue thought Long Yi was muddling through, so she couldn’t help getting angry and said.
Long Yi shrugged his shoulders knowing she didn’t believe him.
“Brother-in-law, are there truly mermaids?” Nalan Rumeng however walked over and asked.
“Of course, there are, when have your brother-in-law deceive you?” Long Yi laughed.
“Then, what do mermaids look like?” Nalan Rumeng curiously asked.
“Mermaids, they are the spirits of the seas, and they look similar to the legendary Siren, but they however are much better looking and beautiful just like Rumeng.” Long Yi said with a smile.
“Really? Then, did they have blue hair and blue eyes?” Nalan Rumeng thought for a bit and asked again.
Long Yi was startled and asked: “How do you know?” Among those three mermaids, other than Liuli who had golden hair, Bifei and Xiaomi had blue hair and blue eyes.
“I dreamed, moreover, I dreamed more than once. And I seemed to start having that dream when I was still very young.” Nalan Rumeng placed her hands on her cheeks and said.
“It’s merely a dream, nothing else. Do you still truly believe that is true?” Nalan Ruyue nevertheless didn’t believe.
Long Yi didn’t reason with Nalan Ruyue because he knew the whole story of this matter, so he asked: “Do you remember what you dreamed?”
Nalan Rumeng’s beautiful eyes blurred as she muttered: “That seemed to have happened on the beach. One very beautiful and pretty aunt warmly looked at me then her hand gently touched my head. After that…after that, I remember nothing.”
The eyes of Nalan Ruyue flashed and she seemed to be lost in thought as she suddenly thought of that strange blue protective barrier of her little sister. Could it be that there truly are so-called mermaids?
“Brother-in-law, did you truly see mermaids?” Nalan Rumeng pulled the sleeve of Long Yi and asked.
Long Yi nodded his head with a smile.
“Then, brother-in-law, can you take me to see them?” Nalan Rumeng said with shining eyes.
“Of course, I can, the mermaids live in the stomach of a kind of sea monster. They build gorgeous palace inside it, moreover, they can play harp too.” Long Yi smiled and said.
“Don’t talk nonsense, you shouldn’t deceive little girl.” Nalan Ruyue obviously didn’t believe.
“I believe in my brother-in-law, brother-in-law, when will you take me to see them?” Nalan Rumeng nevertheless unquestioningly believed Long Yi.
Long Yi hesitated for a moment and said: “After your brother-in-law return, I will take you to see them, and even if you want to stay there, it will also not be a problem.”
“Brother-in-law, are you leaving?” Nalan Rumeng quickly understood the hidden meaning behind the words of Long Yi.
“M-hm, I will be leaving for a period of time.” Long Yi nodded his head and said.
“Do you want to return?” Nalan Ruyue became silent for a moment, then looking at Long Yi, she asked.
At that time, a fragrant smell spread out from the barbecue of the bonfire, and the color and luster of the barbeque also had already changed into golden. So, Long Yi took out seasonings and sprinkling them on the barbeque as he said: “The meat is cooked, how about we talk while eating?”
Long Yi handed over seasoned meat skewers to two women and he picked up a meat skewer to himself too, then began to wolf down. But when he was eating, he saw two sisters were watching him without eating the barbecue.
“Eat, why are you looking at me, could it be that mine is comparatively tasty? Then, let’s exchange.” Long Yi said with a smile.
“Don’t talk nonsense, where exactly are you going? Speak clearly, or……or I will not eat.” Nalan Ruyue fixedly stared at Long Yi, angrily pursuing up her lips.
What a terrifying threat, Long Yi helplessly smiled, then after biting a mouthful of roasted meat, he casually said: “Tomorrow, I’m going to take a trip to Ye Principality with a friend. You should also know about that Lightning God Forbidden Area mission recently issued by Mercenary Guild, we intend to go and take a look.”
“You are going to Lightning God Forbidden Area with just two people, do you not fear for your life? You are not allowed to go.” The complexion of Nalan Ruyue suddenly changed and pulling the hand of Long Yi, she said in a panic.
Long Yi looked at Nalan Ruyue who had worried written all over her face, and he soothingly patted her little hand then said: “It’s impossible to not go. I have already made an arrangement with other people. But, we are only going to widen our knowledge. You should know my strength, I can certainly escape unscathed without any problem.”
“Although your strength is high, but didn’t you also hear the terror of Lightning God Forbidden Area? How many people with great strength turned into a resentful soul inside there? Do you want to become one of them?” Nalan Ruyue somewhat agitatedly said.
“Worried?” Long Yi smiled gently and extend his big hand to caress the beautiful face of Nalan Ruyue.
Nalan Ruyue didn’t refute and also let Long Yi’s big hand caress her beautiful face, but her eyes however were stubbornly staring at him as if she would disagree even if she was beaten to death.
“Brother-in-law, I have also heard about Lightning God Forbidden Area outside, how about you take me with you?” Nalan Rumeng chipped in.
“Rumeng, is your ** itching?” Nalan Ruyue glared at her little sister. And as for this little girl, she stuck out her tongue making a funny face.
Long Yi gently stroke the beautiful face of Nalan Ruyue and then tucking her hair behind her ears, he said: “I know you are worried but I must go.”
“Only ghosts are worried about you, in any case, you are not allowed to go.” Nalan Ruyue’s beautiful face reddened and slapped off the big hand of Long Yi, then suddenly thinking of something, she suspiciously looked at Long Yi and asked: “Perhaps, is that friend of yours a woman?”
Long Yi was dumbfounded but he felt that there was nothing to hide, so he honestly said: “Yes, she is a woman, accurately speaking, she is my woman although she has yet to admit.”
Nalan Ruyue got up and then pulling away her little sister from Long Yi, she yelled at Long Yi: “Go, go with your woman. It would be best if you die in Lightning God Forbidden Area.” After speaking, Nalan Ruyue carried Nalan Rumeng and flew away without turning back.
Long Yi opened his mouth to say something, but he only sighed softly as he had clearly seen that the eyes of Nalan Ruyue were red, presumably, she was very sad.
“Whose mother is hiding there, come out for your father.” Long Yi suddenly noticed a person had arrived not far away, and as he was in a bad mood, he loudly cursed.
After he shouted, a silhouette came out from not far away and then quickly walked over to Long Yi.
“Skynet Number 308 pays respect to Young Master.” This figure was a middle-aged person with ordinary appearance. He immediately knelt down and greeted Long Yi, making an exclusive sign of Skynet with his hands.
“What’s the matter?” Long Yi indifferently asked.
“There are two secret letters for Young Master, please look over, Young Master, this Number 308 ask to leave.” This middle-aged man handed over two sealed bamboo tubes of magic letters to Long Yi then disappeared.
These letter bamboos were sealed using the unique magic of Skynet so no outsiders could examine it. Long Yi opened the first bamboo. It was the letter sent by Intoxicated Fragrant Building’s Proprietress, Ru Yu. It mentioned that the strange writing on that thin paper he had obtained from the place of Han Yan was already determined to be a kind of magic scripts of the previous dynasty. As for its content, it was still unknown.
“Can it be that the surviving members of the previous dynasty are also involved?” Long Yi raised his eyebrows and thought.
But without thinking about that deeply, he opened the second bamboo and spread out the letter inside it. Looking at that letter, Long Yi became very happy. This second letter nevertheless was written by Yin Jian who was dispatched to Hengduan Mountains by Long Yi. The letter stated that, he had already opened up multiple joints with Bimeng Imperial Clan and drawn a number of beast-men to become a planted agent. Now, the Skynet intelligence organization in Hengduan Mountains was already beginning to take the shape.
“This kid, he is capable.” Long Yi happily chuckled and a trace of satisfaction could be seen flashing in his eyes.
