Gu Xijiu patted Lan Waihu’s head. It had been eight years since they last met but this girl had not changed much and still looked like a 15 or 16-year-old girl. Her big and round eyes looked pure like water. Gu Xijiu hugged her tightly to compensate.
“Miss Gu, I have heard a lot about you. My name is Lan Yue.” Lan Yue came forward to greet. At the same time, he took the opportunity to pull Lan Waihu back to his side quietly.“You are a big girl now, don’t just hug other people or else people would say that you are frivolous.”
Lan Waihu seemed like she was afraid of him and she did not refute at all. Although she was unhappy, she just bit her lips and did not say anything else.
Yan Chen’s handsome face was still pale. His eyes glanced at Lan Yue and Lan Waihu for a second then he moved away.
Qian Lingyu frowned. After eight years, this arrogant boy had grown into a steady and calm man. He softly said, “Lan Yue, you joined us late so you would never understand the relationship between Waihu and Xijiu. Without Xijiu, Waihu would not be like this today. Don’t you think it is a bit too much for you to feel jealous about Xijiu?”
Lan Yue coldly replied, “I am just trying to remind my fiancé to pay attention to her words and attitude so that other people would not gossip about her. I did not feel jealous.” He pulled Lan Waihu to the side and asked, “Did you get injured just now?”
Lan Waihu shook her head
Yan Chen finally spoke, “Alright, now that the crisis has been lifted, you all should go back to report to the school.”
Lan Waihu could not help but look at him. However, he did not look at her but just patted Qian Lingyu. “Your responsibility is to bring them back safely. I will not forgive you if any one of them loses one strand of hair!”
Qian Lingyu nodded. “Senior Yan, don’t you want to go back with us?”
Yan Chen smiled. “No, I have graduated from Tianju Hall, so I still need to go back to my family to report on my status.” He looked at Gu Xijiu. “Xijiu, let’s gather again when we have an opportunity in thefuture.” He turned and wanted to leave.
“Wait.” Gu Xijiu continued, “Yan Chen, I hope that you can go back together with us this time. There is something that I need help on from everyone.”
Yan Chen was surprised.
Gu Xijiu smiled. “This thing is crucial!”
Yan Chen pondered for a moment before he answered, “Alright!”
There was an isolated small village. At first, when Gu Xijiu heard about it, she thought that it was a paradise. However, when she arrived at the town, she realized that this place was abysmal. The soil road was bumpy. The cottages were built in mud and stone, and the villagers’ head and face were filthy with grime.
As some of the spies could fly, Gu Canmo never thought of living here for too long. Therefore, they also followed the culture and asked the students to build the same cottages as the villagers so that they looked likeordinary villagers and would not be easily found.
The villagers had not gone out from the mountain before, and they had no idea about the situation of the outside world. Thus, everyone from the famous Tianju Hall did not get any special treatment from the villagers. In fact, they were generally destitute and could only afford to feed their stomachs. Even if they wanted to give special treatment to the migrants, they had no capital to do so.
Besides, the god they prayed to was not The Lord but instead, Huang DaxianDue to the unique skills that the people from Tianju Hall possessed, the villagers gave them a very special nickname – Huang Daxian’s family.
The Huang Daxian family gained a lot of respect from the villagers, because when they went outside, they often brought back some fine things, rice, flour, oil, salt and so on. They even bought some fine food and other items to give the people from Tianju Hall and helped to improve their lifestyle a lot.
