“As for the woman, she insisted on defending the mussel without first identifying the truth. The third Guardian, Tie Liu, is injured because of her. Therefore, I would like her to come with us to the ninth heaven.”
Di Fuyi took a look at the mussel, who was now resting on the back of Lu Wu. Instinctively, the mussel trembled a little when their eyes met. It could not explain the awe and veneration that it had for the man.
Di Fuyi lay his body down lazily on the back of Bai Ze, with his hand supporting his chin. “Hmm, I see. Mussel, come here. Tell me everything that you have been through over the past few days. I would like to know,” he demanded smilingly.
Before the mussel could say anything, Tie Zheng quickly interrupted, “My Prince, the mussel is a sly old fox. What it says may not be the truth.”
“How will you know that it is not the truth before the mussel even speaks?” Di Fuyi answered with a sarcastic smile.
Tie Zheng argued, “This… This is its cunning nature.”
The mussel could no longer hold back its rage. “I will not lie about it! I will admit whatever that I have committed! I dare to take the blame for what I have done!”
Bai Ze suddenly offered, “Master, I can replay the entire scenario.”
No one dared to refute its offer. Therefore, Bai Ze transformed into its human figure and leaped onto the back of Lu Wu. Firstly, it had to find out the time when the mussel encountered the three Senior Immortals. Then, it put his hand on the mussel’s shells to make a connection. On another palm, streaks of white rays slowly emerged. It aimed the light the surface of a rock to project the images.
Slowly, the scenes started to replay. The first one to make the appearance was the mussel. In its human form, it crouched down among the foliage, carefreely grilling its meat. Its human figure was in the form of a cute and adorable child. It was wearing its bellyband, with two twisted knots on each side of its head. Its white and plump skin made it look very adorable.
Three Senior Immortals were exiting the woods when they saw the mussel. Quickly, they approached it. They hid behind the bushes to secretly discuss a plan. From their conversation, it was known that they had mistaken the mussel as a baby ginseng that had cultivated long enough to acquire its human form.They were planning to catch it. They had even discussed how they should cook it.
The three Senior Immortals looked decent, very unlike how they planned to cook it, which was rather brutal. For example, the most valuable part about a baby ginseng was its heart. Hence, they planned to dig out its heart first.
The delicacies before its eyes had caught the mussel’s full attention, so it was unaware of the approaching danger. Before the three Senior Immortals could attack the mussel, its sense of danger was suddenly triggered. Intuitively, it looked up and caught the figure of a man standing afar, obscured by a layer of black fog.
It could not see his face clearly, but his aura was extremely intimidating. He was not a man that it should mess with. Immediately, the mussel used its Ground Drilling to make its escape. The three Senior Immortals were obviously unaware of the presence of the mysterious man, so they were all surprised by the mussel’s sudden escape. With their mouth ajar, they gave each other a look. Reluctant to let their prey escape, they decided to chase after the mussel with Ground Drilling, too.
At one of the hills, they finally caught up with the mussel. The mussel had already returned to its original form. Upon seeing the mussel, the Senior Immortals were indeed disappointed to find out that it was not a baby ginseng.
In their discussion, they all agreed that it was still a rare encounter to witness a mussel that had cultivated long enough to acquire its human form. The internal pearl must be lying somewhere between its shells, and that was a priceless asset.However, the only problem was that the mussel obviously possessed great Kung Fu. Moreover, the majestic being had an owner. They knew because they heard the mussel blabbering that it was going to hunt a musk deer for its master.
It was a crime to kill a majestic being with an owner for no reason at all. In the Saha World, it was a crime that bore severe punishments.
