“Host, you must not tell the others about me, normal people cannot know about the existence of the system.” 179 reminded him.
“I know, I won’t.”
“You cannot mention it even if Gu Wen Zhu asks you during your pillow-talks. I need you to promise me. Men are totally vulnerable when they are sweet-talked by attractive people.” 179 was still worried.
“I will keep my promise, you can rest assured.”
“That’s right, you are not that kind of inexperienced guy. You are a dignified individual who has been through thick and thin just like me.”
179 recalled something, “Host, you haven’t accepted new missions since completing one yesterday. When are you going to accept the next one?”
Xia Yi glared at Gu Wen Zhu, seeing that he was dozing out and was not in the mood to talk with him, he replied, “Now.”
As he finished saying the word, a huge interface appeared in his mind with the voice of 179 echoing along.
“Now, cultivation system 179 will announce the fourth mission for you.”
“Mission description: Awakening the Honourable Immortal Leader CangYi.
Award 1: Huge Gift Pack.”
The honourable immortal leader CangYi? This name of the target sounds familiar. Isn’t that the one who Cheng Ming was always calling Zhu when he was acting crazy? This mission sounds about right. It sounds like I know something about it.
“What do I have to farm this time?”
“Winter gourd? According to my knowledge, although there is the word winter in its name, the seeds of winter gourds are not supposed to be sowed during autumn, right?” Xia Yi was a little startled, are you trying to make it difficult for me?
“Host you only have to farm, you do not have to care about the seasons.”
“Is that so?”
“We will adjust the temperature, worry not, host.”
“Okay, understood, plant winter gourds.” Xia Yi was somehow absent-minded, “Speaking of which, 179. Last time I completed a mission of finding clues about the disappearance of the sect master. Then I really found some clues when I was transmigrated to the cultivation world. Is that the effects caused by the mission?”
“I am not sure, host. We systems did not have any experience in giving out missions with transmigrations through worlds. This is the first time we encounter this, we are still learning.”
Gu Wen Zhu was walking in silence, however, he was actually suffering from the heavy blow, he was so overwhelmed that his emotions were as if the overturned seas and rivers.
He had heard that people who were deceived by that Fang Xian Dao believed deeply about what they were told as if they were bewitched, the victims would not hesitate even if they were being told to die. He must not force Yi to leave the Fang Xian Dao, Yi looked like a gentle person but he had a fierce personality. He had to take it slow for Yi.
You are his only family. If you do not believe him, who can he turn to? As long as he believes in that, I have to go along with it no matter what.
Right, that’s the way.
As long as he is safe and still knows the way home.
Gu Wen Zhu was feeling even more sad, he said in a suppressed tone, “If there is a next time, that you have to go and cultivate, remember to come back. I will wait for you no matter how long it takes.”
“I surely will come back.” Xia Yi felt bad for him, “The cultivation world is good, but you are not there, so I will never stay there.”
Both of them halted and gazed at each other with love in their eyes.
Under the moonlight, Xia Yi’s skin was veiled by a layer of delicate and transparent soft light. His lips were rosy, his almond eyes were with long and thin eyelashes. Gu Wen Zhu was moved by the view, he swallowed without even noticing, his Adam’s apple moved along.
“179, go away, don’t peek.” Xia Yi thought it was time, thus he urged 179 to not look, with Gu Wen Zhu’s face closing up, he slowly closed his eyes and pursed his lips.
“Yi! Wen Zhu!” Mr. Wang’s calling reached them from afar, interrupting the two.
I knew Mr. Wang would be here.
I can’t even.
“Yi!” Mr. Wang ran towards them, panting, catching his breath, “Your, your uncle, your uncle he,”
“Talk slowly, Mr. Wang, has he been seeing something in someone’s land and gone crazy?” Xia Yi asked.
“No, I thought that you two were back, I was bringing him back to the old house. We were talking, but when I turned to look at him, I turned to look at him,” Mr. Wang was so shocked that he stammered, “I turned to look at him and he was gone.”
“Is Ming back? 179.” Xia Yi asked System immediately.
“Yes, his status was shown as transmigrating back to the cultivation world just now.”
“The fact is, Mr. Wang.” Xia Yi did a few coughs, his brain was processing at high speed, “My uncle had been mentioning that he wanted to go home, so he must have gone back.”
“He disappeared just like that?” Mr. Wang was still in shock.
“He ran away and hid nearby when you were not watching, then he came out again when you were gone. That’s how he did it.” Xia Yi used his fingers to point at his own head, “There is something wrong here with him.”
Mr. Wang nodded with his burden lifted, “Then it’s alright, it’s alright.”
After saying goodbye to Mr. Wang, Gu Wen Zhu asked Xia Yi, attempting to dig more about the matter, “Did he say he wanted to go home? I haven’t heard about that.”
“Yes.” Xia Yi nodded firmly, “He was from the cultivation world, he was transported here only because parts of the two worlds overlapped, the dimensions were mixed. So now he is back.”
Gu Wen Zhu: …
It was a good thing that that uncle had gone, Gu Wen Zhu took a long imaginary exhale in relief. Looking at Xia Yi beside him, he still could not help but feel anxious, he was afraid that he would disappear with just a blink. And so he held Xia Yi’s hands tight, thinking that he must be careful from now on.
Xia Yi sensed Gu Wen Zhu’s anxiety, he took the chance and leaned on his shoulder. The two of them walked home leaning on each other.
The next morning, Xia Yi went to the farmland, wanting to harvest his radishes.
25 point land of radishes were harvested within two hours. Those which were planted in the soil were put into the trailer to be carried away, those extra three acres of harvested radishes were kept in the storage space by 179.
After lunch, Xia Yi started to search the little wooden box of Gu Wen Zhu’s on his bedside. He remembered that there was a nice looking silver ingot with high purity. He was preparing to take it to the neighboring village to make it into a pair of rings.
With witnessing Gu Wen Zhu being distressed during this period of time, Xia Yi felt that he should give the one he loved some comfort as a man and therefore had made this decision in his heart.
He was going to propose to Gu Wen Zhu.
Having the silver ingot in his hand, Xia Yi went to see Gu Wen Zhu who was washing dishes in the kitchen, he threw himself towards his back and said affectionately, “I am going to the neighboring village to do something, I will be back soon.”
Gu Wen Zhu did not stop his motion, “Do you want me to go with you?”
Of course not, it would not be a surprise if you come.
“There is no need. I am only buying some seeds of winter gourd.” Xia Yi wanted to buy some seeds on his way anyway. There were hawkers in the neighboring village.
“Then come back earlier, if you are not back at dinner time, I will go and fetch you.” Gu Wen Zhu was a bit clingy these few days. That might have been caused by insecurity.
“Fine, you behave as well.” Xia Yi gave Gu Wen Zhu’s face a kiss, then he turned and left.
Gu Wen Zhu turned and looked at him until his figure vanished behind the front door, then he continued to wash the dishes.
The neighboring village was not far, only three or four miles away, he arrived without taking much time. This village was much bigger than theirs, ite was also more populated, and hence there existed a few more stores selling different things.
Xia Yi found the silversmith very quickly, he had been telling the silversmith with the help of plenty of gestures for half a day about how he should carve ‘XY’ and ‘GWZ’ in the ring, but the silversmith did not seem to understand it.
The silversmith blinked in confusion and said, troubled, “I usually make some tags for the children in the village or some little things like that, I don’t know how to carve what you have just told me to.”
“How about this, I will make it easy for you, only carve one letter, okay? Only carve a Y and a G.” After saying so, he started to draw on the ground with a stick. Xia Yi had no other choices, a silversmith in a village in the countryside would not know how to satisfy his request.
“Alright, I will try.” The silversmith took the piece of silver ingot, “Go look around the village and come back a while later.”
“Right, then I will buy some winter gourd seeds.” Xia Yi raised his foot and stepped outside.
This village was lively. It was like a town. Not only had Xia Yi bought some seeds, he had also bought some threads and needles for Gu Wen Zhu. He had bought a bell for collaring it on Kirin’s neck. This bell was made of brass, with a leather string attached to it, making it look quite nice.
“Why do I have nothing?” 179’s uncontented voice rang, “I want that hair band for gers, the pink one.”
“How would a system need anything? Even if I buy you something, you cannot wear it.” Xia Yi said resignedly.
“You bought something for Gu Wen Zhu and Kirin but not me.” 179 began to take his gloves off, “Even if I can’t wear it, I will still feel happy when I see it every day.”
Xia Yi could only compromise and used a few dollars to buy one pink hair band for gers.
“I want letters too, make Gu Wen Zhu sew three numbers on it, 179.”
Okay okay okay.
