“Uncle, you must have been mistaken, I am no honourable immortal leader, my name is Gu Wen Zhu. Yi’s aunt is my stepmother.” Gu Wen Zhu stood there at a loss of what to do.
Dude, stop it! Do you have the slightest idea of self control? Xia Yi had an urge to roll his eyes.
Cheng Ming was still crying on Gu Wen Zhu’s shoulder and seemed to be full of real emotions, “Leader, it have been twenty years since you went traveling, we have been searching for you for many times but could not find you. We were wondering if you had ascended, but I now see that you have become a farmer.”
Gu Wen Zhu looked at Xia Yi helplessly, Xia Yi shook his head to show that there was no way to fix him. Then Xia Yi pointed at his head, implying that there was something wrong with Cheng Ming’s brain.
“Um, uncle, come over here.” Xia Yi retreated to the edge of the yard. When Cheng Ming came over wiping his tears, Xia Yi said in a low voice, “Enough, Mingie, that was too over the top, calling Zhu some leader? I am telling you, Zhu is a good person, even if you do not pretend to be friends with him, he will let you stay.”
“Don’t call him Zhu, be more respectful. Do you have any idea who he is? He is the leader of the Qi Shan Sect. Although you have saved my life, if you do not pay respect to our leader, I will still turn against you.” Cheng Ming said seriously
[179, is he addicted to acting?] Xia Yi was shocked, he looked closely at Cheng Ming’s expressions and started to have questions when he found that Cheng Ming did not seem like lying. “You are not acting? Why do you think he is your leader?”
“It is not just a thought, it is the truth. He surely is our leader.”
He is done for. He bumped his head during transmigration.
[179, I think he is not lying, his acting skills would be too good if he was, I think he bumped his head during transmigration.] Xia Yi had an increasing belief that there was something wrong with Cheng Ming.
[Host, I have reported the issue to the main system, the technical system will check if his condition of delirium, hallucination and cosplaying was caused by the transmigration.] System said in a stern tone.
[Okay then.] Xia Yi thus relaxed, then he sensed that it was still not right, [Technical system? That one that do MLM and had been off for three months?]
[What MLM? He went to exchange and learn.] 179 felt wronged, Host you could talk about me, but not my colleges.
[Now we have morning meetings every day, we memorize positive quotations together, we have mental lifts and improvements in the whole system.] 179 was defending himself angrily, Xia Yi did not say a word, System then continued, [I can forgive you if you buy five pieces of chips from me and help me to become a third level manager.]
You call this exchange and learn? No wonder those people from the Qi Shan Sect keep transmigrating.
Xia Yi walked to the side of Gu Wen Zhu, “My fourth uncle is not very sharp, he has to say that he was from a cultivation sect, and that you are their leader. Zhu, just go along with whatever he says.”
“Okay, I will do so. He is your uncle, I am supposed to take good care of him anyways.” Gu Wen Zhu lowered his voice and replied, “I will invite a doctor here to see him tomorrow.”
“There is no need, he will be better after some time.” Xia Yi declined immediately, this sequela of transmigration could not be healed by some doctor. “I will cook some medicine that is good for the brain for him.”
Gu Wen Zhu nodded, this brain disease could not be easily cured, “You do not have to save money about this, all the money is in the cupboard. Bring plenty with you when you buy the ingredients.”
“I understand, go and cook, I am starving.” Xia Yi said loudly and pushed Gu Wen Zhu into the kitchen.
“The leader is going to cook?” Cheng Ming took a breath nervously, “You are not going to serve him?”
Gu Wen Zhu was beginning to pour the food into the wok to fry them. Smoke came out with sizzling sounds, he grabbed a few dried peppers and threw them in, Yi loves spicy food. He flipped the wok with ease, and the delicious smell started to waft around. He used chopsticks to carry a piece into his mouth. It’s good, then he dished up the food.
Cheng Ming stood at the door absentmindedly, looking at Gu Wen Zhu cooking and dishing up the food skillfully. He felt as if everything happening in front of him was an illusion.
“Our leader could not even smell the smoke from the oil, let alone frying food in front of the dusty stove. He only drank from the YunLi Spring; the immortal crane would fly for a few thousand miles to take two hu to ensure the water was pure. And rolling up his sleeves and the leg of his trousers to farm with a hoe on his shoulder? The leader always wore white, he was elegant and graceful, his clothes were made by the hands of the best tailors in the TengXiu Mountain with the carefully selected silk.”
“Did the leader come here to experience hardship?”
“And he does not remember me, has he forgotten about me? That’s impossible, the leader has already cultivated to the level of the gods, he can remember everything. He should not forget about his beloved Mingie even if he forgot about everyone else.”
“Is he experiencing memory loss?”
Gu Wen Zhu had made preserved meat with bamboo shoots which Xia Yi loved, he had even added a handful of garlic. Xia Yi did not touch the fatty meat, he ate all except the piece of fatty meat. He ate the lean meat from the piece and threw the remaining piece in irregular shape into Gu Wen Zhu’s bowl.
With Cheng Ming staring in shock, Gu Wen Zhu calmly held the half piece of meat with chopsticks and ate it.
The next morning, Xia Yi got up. The white radishes should be almost ready for harvest after one more round of fertilizing, this should be a busy day. He had breakfast and had a sweet and temporary departure with Gu Wen Zhu, carrying two buns and two hoes, he arrived at the outside of the yard of the old house, humming.
“Mingie, Mingie.” Xia Yi urged Cheng Ming to get up. “Mingie, you should get up and work.”
Cheng Ming opened the door with a scrunched face, he took the bun, mumbling that he was going to the farmland with Xia Yi. “When I was in the Sect, we had servants to serve us every morning. Although we had been practicing inedia, we still have delicacies from time to time, buns like these were for the servants. We would go to the top of the mountain to intake the aura of Heaven and Earth. We would focus on cultivating after performing guiyuan-tunafa, we have never farmed in our lives.”
Xia Yi laughed coldly, he opened his palm in front of Cheng Ming, “Give that back if you are not going to eat it. Your immortal honourable leader had cooked for me after waking up, then he fed the dog and the cow and cleaned the chicken yard, now he is in the farmland. As your leader, he has not been complaining.”
Cheng Ming, alert, held the bun in his hand more tightly, and stopped talking abruptly.
In the field, Xia Yi threw Cheng Ming a hoe, “Go, loosen the soil for every radish. Be careful, don’t harm the radish skin.”
Cheng Ming reluctantly took the hoe and dug the soil gently.
Suddenly, he halted. A portion of dirt had been dug off by him, showing some radish skin. He put the hoe aside, crouched and brushed off the soil around the radish, staring with widely opened eyes. He rubbed his eyes in disbelief, then he brushed off some more of the soil. Then, he showed an extremely delighted face and said in a shivering voice, “The fruit of the heavens, this is the fruit of the heavens.”
There he goes again.
Xia Yi resignedly stood supported by the hoe.
[179, is there any response from the system yet since you have reported?] Xia Yi called for the system. “His brain is damaged by the transmigration, and his condition is becoming worse.]
[The technical system had checked thoroughly right after the report of the situation. However, no abnormalities have been found throughout the check up. The technical system felt like he needed more training and went out to learn more.] 179 answered.
Hence, Cheng Ming had been looking at the radishes for the whole morning with a broad smile, “I have never seen the fruits of the heavens in such a huge size, and with this kind of quality. I have only seen it years ago in the gathering of all sects. The head of the Wen Dao Sect let me see it, that was far from these, and he was constantly hiding it, as if it would be eaten by us just looking at it. A whole field of the fruits of the heavens, the head of the Wen Dao Sect should be stupefied if he saw this hahahahahaha. Eating one of these should be worth one hundred years of cultivation. It’s a pity that my fellow apprentices can not see this.” Sobbing again.
Xia Yi could not hold it anymore, “If you’re going to farm, just farm. Don’t get excited all over the place the whole morning.”
Cheng Ming looked at him with discontent, “You say these fruits of the heavens are radishes, you really think I don’t know what radishes are?”
Xia Yi nodded with a cold laugh, he pulled Cheng Ming forward. They came to the radish farm of the others, he dug off the dirt from one radish and asked, “What is this?”
“Radish.” Cheng Ming answered without any issues and seemed discontented because of the simple question.
Oh? He is normal now?
Then Xia Yi pulled him to his land and pointed at a radish, “What is this?”
“The fruit of the heavens.” Cheng Ming replied giggling.
How do you fail to recognize my radishes? It happens intermittently?
“Whatever, I am not going to argue with you. Let’s go. Go and have lunch.” It was already noon, there was not much to do these days, Zhu might have finished cooking by now.
“I am not eating, I am guarding the fruits.” Cheng Ming waved his hand without even looking up, but he said after some thoughts, “You can bring me a couple of buns when you are back.”
Xia Yi did not invite him again. He relaxed and went back home to eat.
