  1. Chapter 29 Third Aunt’s Unexpected Return
Edited by Marci

   Aunt Zhang was looking for her for a small matter. She just wanted to say that tomorrow she’ll be making a trip to the county city, so she asked her if she want to go together?

   Of course Lian Fang Zhou wanted to go, but she had more important things to do, so she could only say "next time"!

   "Aunt Zhang, I can't go tomorrow," Lian Fang Zhou smiled and said, "Can I trouble Aunt Zhang to help me buy some things?"

   Aunt Zhang did not ask why she's could not go but  frankly nodded and grinned. "Just speak, what do you need to buy, Aunt Zhang ah, promises to buy them while being both of good quality and cheap for you!"

   That being said, and both of them burst out laughing.

   Actually, Lian Fang Zhou didn't have any other things to buy, just the hemp paper for the window,  some cloth to make clothes, and a pair of shoes for everyone at home.

   The others are fine, but when Aunt Zhang heard her mention buying shoes, Aunt Zhang glared at her, saying "You girl, using money is like being on the knife's blade, there can't be big hands big feet (meaning loosely handing out money)! What need is there to buy shoes? Isn't it fine to make them yourselves? There's plenty of things that money will be needed to be spent on in the future! You can't be so wasteful! Such a coincidence that I also have to make shoes, so when the time comes, I'll request for more  leftover cloth from the tailor shop's master. When I'm back, I'll give you some. I guarantee there will be enough for you. You just need to buy a pack of inner soles and do some needlework!"

  "Aunt Zhang, I ..." For a moment, Lian Fang Zhou couldn't speak.

    Aunt Zhang talking like this and not treating her like outsider, made her very grateful, grateful from the bottom of her heart. But damn, she doesn't know how to make shoes ah!

    Whatever inner soles were, she had never seen them before ah!

    She hadn’t even seen the simple ancient chinese commoner clothing style, so when the time comes, she'll invite the village aunt or sister who are good at their work to help give pointers and it'll be fine. Otherwise, she can't even make clothes ah.

    Only the thought that the original Lian Fang Zhou could do it, so for a moment she did not know what to say.

    "Oh!" Aunt Zhang gently sighed and said in 'such a pity' tone: "No wonder you said it like that. Qing er is still small; you, one person having to manage the family, and also having to work on the field, definitely won't have much time to make shoes! Let's not mention anything else, just the inner sole is a lot of work na!"

    Lian Fang Zhou mentally sighed out in relief. Although Aunt Zhang misunderstood, such a misunderstanding is what she was begging for!

    So she smiled and was about to speak -

Who knew that Aunt Zhang continue on and said, "How about this! Ah Juan and I will help you with the soles! And when you're free, just stick the front on and it's done - Ah, you’re not allowed to decline! That's how it'll be settled! "

   Since Aunt Zhang said it like this, Lian Fang Zhou couldn't really say any words of rejection, so she only nodded and agreed, giving her thanks.

   The next day after breakfast, using a dustpan Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze spread out the mushroom which were picked yesterday, left at the front to sun-dry and told Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che to watch the house. If it is going to rain, they had to bring the mushroom into the house; as the sun moves, also move them a bit.

   The two of them then went to Mount Xian Teng again.

   Sun Zhang Xing went really early to get more time to hunt. They don't need to hunt and the mountains have plenty of mushrooms, so they don't need to go out too early.

   There were seven-eight consecutive days of good weather, so the two siblings went to Mount Xian Teng every day. Every day they brought back four large bags of mushrooms looking like groundhogs as they transported them home.

   Due to walking and exploring  the mountains frequently, they also became a lot more familiar with it. Their courage also grew, and, the scope of the activities they completed widened.

  The two sibling's luck was good; later on, they found a lot of Tremella fuciformis, as well as some precious Porcino and Hericium erinaceus. But, they also accidentally found a tremendous amount of Tuber fleeceflower. These are good stuff, making Lian Fang Zhou feel overjoyed.

   The two also caught a good amount of river shrimp. Three fingers big fish can also be seen occasionally, but this wild fish is very sneaky and slippery with its streamlined-like body shape and ability to move lightning fast in the water. Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze crept around, before they could catch this fish, it already flashed to another place!

   They just have to give up.

   But with one whole noon, the two caught a palm-sized turtle. The turtle was lying on the shore rock under the sun and easy fell into their hands. They intended to take it home for Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che play with.

   In the mountains, wild fruits were countless. In addition to those small  jujube trees, there were many mountain chestnuts, pear, wild persimmon, mountain grapes, rose myrtle fruit, another kind of jujube, Elaeagnus fruit, etc., so much that it dazzled the two.

   But unfortunately, home was too far away or else they could bring the two little siblings together to play.

   However, the two chose some fruits each day to take back, so it was a good surprise for Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che.

   Lian Fang Zhou didn't want people to know that they went to the Mount Xian Teng, so they told Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che that those wild fruits could only be eaten at home and could not be brought out.

Since the death of their father and mother, the four siblings’ life became bleak, as they suffered a good bit of bullying. The children of the village, whenever they have something delicious or fun, would deliberately and triumphantly show off in the front of Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che.

   Lian Fang Qing was once angered until she cried. Now it was her turn to have something good, but Lian Fang Qing with great difficulty managed to hold back the impulse to take it out .

   Continuously going out for these many days, Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze were tired, and they already gathered a lot of mushrooms. Lian Fang Zhou intends to go to the county city to sell them and have a look at the market before deciding.

   This way, re-gathering can also have a comparison - of course, picking those with value to gather!

   Not long afterward, the weather cooled down. Once the frost hit, it will be difficult for mushrooms to grow, then there won't be any mushrooms that can be picked.

   The first batch that was brought back has been dried, they just gathered ones that need another two or three days to dry completely. Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze already discussed that they would rest two or three days at home, and then go.

   In the vegetable patch, the seeds that were sprinkled before have long already sprouted. Every evening, Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze will carry two big buckets of water to water the plants at once. Those vegetables not only grew fast, but were also moist and tender.

These two day, there's fresh green vegetables to eat at home, and then another few days, she can transplant some. There's also that turned green pepper, can also plucked.

   Lian Fang Zhou's heart thumped, she felt that they should send some to Aunt Zhang's family. She specifically selected some of the best vegetables and plucked two peppers.

   Although it isn't worth much, nothing beats freshness - at this time other people have not started to sow seeds and pepper has already been long dead.

   When Mrs Zhao saw the fresh vegetables and the tender green pepper, her eyes brightened. She happily thanked her, took them, and could not help but say, "This is really rare na! At this time sowing, wouldn't the seedlings grow moldy? There also peppers, how could there be fresh ones in this season? Fang Zhou how did you do it?"

   This small matter, of course, Lian Fang Zhou wouldn't keep it private. She then laughed and grinned. "Rapeseed can be sprinkled, but the ground must be treated first with ash and mixed well into the soil. You need to use the ready made ash, which were hogweed that was cut off from the mountains and were burned. Do not use the ones from the stove! Sister may not know it, that this pepper after coming to fruition looked like a lost case, but I just loosened the soil, and then fertilize it. Doing so will allow it to bear fruit once again. The second time isn't as much as the first time, just this big!"

   "So it's like that! I'll also try it next year!" Mrs Zhao grinned as she nodded and remembered.

   Lian Fang Zhou laughed: "Our garden pepper plant has a lot of fruit; if sister likes them, in two days I can send some over!"

Mrs Zhao felt overjoyed and continuously gave her thanks.

   Aunt Zhang saw her daughter-in-law like this and could not help but secretly sigh, then could not help but laug.h "Alright Fang Zhou, you ah, are  this thoughtful, so sending once is enough. No need to send again! Leave them for yourselves! If you can't eat them all, leave them to turn red and pick them to be sun dried, or make chili sauce! That way the stuff won't go bad!"

   Lian Fang Zhou: "Aunt Zhang, almost every time you say that I regard you as outsider, now your words really regard me as outsider! Whatever your family has something to eat, don't you think of me? Sister, later I will sent them over. Do not worry!"

   Mrs Zhao froze, then ​​laughed. Originally hearing her mother saying it like this, she was also somewhat embarrassed and unhappy. This time she also very happily answered "Great!" And smiled saying, "Almost forgot, yesterday we just opened an old pumpkin. Wait a bit; I'll cut a piece for you! Bring it back home and cook some pumpkin rice, or fry some or add water to stew. It’s really sweet!"

   Lian Fang Zhou gave her thanks and then stood there waiting.

   Aunt Zhang, who heard her say it like this, feeling like she better not say anymore courteous words again, also laughed.

   Thinking about it, whatever they own, they give more to them!

   Mrs Zhao cut a piece of old pumpkin out and cheerfully handed it to Lian Fang Zhou. Lian Fang Zhou gave her thanks again and took her leave.
   At this time, she saw Li Juan coming in from the outside, while she saw Lian Fang Zhou causing her eyes to flash as she said, "Fang Zhou, Fang Zhou! Your family's Third Aunt came back, and at your uncle and aunt's home she’s causing a stir at this moment! A lot of people are there to watch the fun!"

The whole family is shameless
“Of course master, the reason why I ask you take him home with you is because with him beside you, your cultivation will be quicker, also… if you can do pair cultivation, then it will quicken your breakthrough, master, quickly bring him home to do pair cultivation.”
Pair cultivation?
Yun Luo Feng’s mouth twitched, completely speechless, never thought that there’s something like pair cultivation in this mainland.
“Master, quickly bring him home ah! Right now he’s unconscious due to injuries, after you take him back with you, tie him up, and every night do pair cultivation, I promise you you will breakthrough very quickly.”
Yun Luo Feng was even more speechless why did she feel that after seeing this man, Xiao Mo is more agitated than she is?
Could it be that Xiao Mo fancy him?
“Forget it,” Yun Luo Feng shook her head.” I have no interest in kidnapping, the day isn’t young, I should return!”
That’s right, to Yun Luo Feng, Xiao Mo’s actions is no different from kidnapping.
However, before leaving, Yun Luo Feng took out the needle she just bought along the way, to pause this man’s internal injuries, then took out the herbs the Medical Pavilion gift to her, chewed and feed it to him.
After doing that, she turned around to walk out the lane.
“Alright, I already help him delay his condition, just for the fact that he have spiritual entity constitution, whether he can live, have to look at his good luck. I don’t want the trouble of going to buy treatment herbs again.”
“That can’t do,Master, you have to bring him back with you, don’t go, master…”
Within her mind, was Xiao Mo’s non-stop anxious cry, in order to not let the guy continuously chatter so noisy, Yun Luo Feng just cut their link.
Finally, it’s quiet……
In the mighty and serious palace main hall, a male in a yellow royal robe sitting on the royal seat up high. He gazed down at the non-stop crying in despair General Yun, felt a non-stop headache as he rubbed his forehead.
General Yun’s face full of sorrow and suffering, as if Yun Luo Feng really meet some kind of accident/misfortune.
“If it weren’t not for our Yun family’s guard being so loyalty and dedicated, having the courage to risk offending Mu Family and save my granddaughter, my granddaughter would have already been ruined by that beast’s claws, I beg your Majesty ‘to call the shot'(literal)/ ‘for justice'(the meaning).”
Mu Xing Chou just entered the main hall, had not yet had the time to speak being wronged, and hear General Yun’s shameless words, nearly vomit out his old blood.
“General Yun, you vicious slanderer! You Yun Family not only beaten and injured my grandson, but also come blackmail me, now dare evil report first(meaning-the villain sues his victim before he himself is prosecuted.)
Yun Luo glanced at him, then harrumphed: “Our Yun Family took legitimate action (for safety of public), if Mu Shen didn’t reach his demon claws on my granddaughter first, would he get beaten? This matter, you Prime Minister manor was at fault first, if you gave us an explanation, then I would have kindly let it go!”
Previous || Next


UNEDITED Dissolving engagement part 1

In the main hall, the officials kept their head down, dare not make a squeak, deeply afraid these two Mt Tai of Long Yuan's fighting will bring trouble to the innocent.
Mu Xing Chou's face was like he ate poo, extremely ugly, vicious eyes, unmovingly stared at Yun Luo's shameless face. If it wasn't because he can't win that old guy (in fighting), he would already go over and punch him.
"Yun Luo don't you know shame? Is your whole family that shameless? Your granddaughter is completely fine over there now, as oppose to my grandson, who now unconscious. So who's actually in the wrong, His Majesty knows very well."
   Yun Luo mockingly laughed, stood up from the ground, his eyes were tyranical/bossy/domineering and fierce like a sharp sword.
"My granddaughter is safe and sound now is thanks to our Yun Family's guards capable protection, or else, afraid I'm going to lose my only kin! However, even though my granddaughter may have escape this matter but was traumatized heavily, today if you don't give me an explaination, I'll let my men/soldier trample your manor to the ground!"
Mu Xing Chou was angered til his body trembled. He took a deep breath to suppress his wrath from a moment ago, no longer giving the old guy a single glance, turning his line of sight to Gao Tu(the emperor) to request.
"Your Majesty, right or wrong, may Your Majesty make it clear/decide."
His own daughter is His Majesty's beloved consort, his granddaughter Mu Wu Shang also have fallen in love with each other, if it were not for  Yun Luo Feng blocking in the middle, Wu Shuang would have already been Crown Prince Consort.
However, her becoming the Princess Consort is a sooner or later matter! Yun Luo Feng that waste, how could she fit the four word 'Mother of the World'?
 "This......"  Gao Tu's brows tightly pinched up, he watched the two courtiers/vassal/officials pointing at each other. In the end, he lightly sighed, "Prime Minister, the Mu Manor is certainly/indeed wrong in this matter, Yun Family did was self-defense. You let Mu Shen go to Yun Family to apologise."
It's not that Gao Tu didn't want to favor/biased toward Prime Minister Mu, it's just that this Yun Luo left his home for ten years for Long Yuan, if he continue favor Prime Minister Mu at this moment, it will definitely let the world's common people's heart cold.
Anyhow, no matter whether it's Yun Luo Feng's parents or the Yun Family's genius Yun Qing Ya, their end result happened because he was biased toward the Mu Manor! And this Yun Luo Feng is Yun Family's one and only seed, if something really happened, afraid that old guy will go crazy right then.
"Your Majesty!"
"Alright," Seeing Mu Xing Chou wanting to open his mouth, Gao Tu waved his hand, stopping his words. Immediately looked at Yun Luo, majestically/ with dignity said "This matter end like this, Mu Shen harass Yun Luo Feng, in the end he received retribution, so this compensation matter, just drop it, since Yun Luo Feng didn't receive any harm. If future, no one is allowed to mention this matter!"
It was clearly Mu Shen wanting to rape Yun Luo Feng, but from Gao Tu's mouth it became harassment.
The difference between two, is completely not the same meaning.
Yun Luo eyes looked down, hiding the touch of disappointment. Indiifferently/blandly said: "Since Your Majesty has already ordered, this subject obey! It's just that this subject is now advance in age, so in future can't lead troops to war, this Command Token will be returned to Your Majesty
Finsh saying this, he took out a Command Token from his sleeves, slowly approahed forward two steps and handed it to the eunuch at the side.
The eunuch took the Command Token, went to Gao Tu's side, respectfully brought it in front of him.
Gao Tu was precisely worried about how to take back the power of hundreds of thousand troop back, never thought that this old guy would take the initative to hand it over. From the bottom of his heart, it immediately burst out in ecstasy.

28. Chapter 28 Dinner
    Lian Fang Zhou thought about her blunder, suddenly feeling a bit embarrassed.

    She coughed once and then laughed. Afterwards, she lightly grinned at Sun Zhang Xing. "Uncle Sun, there's something I want to ask. Please don't be angry!"

    "If there's something, ask!" Sun Zhang Xing froze.

    Lian Fang Zhou then blandly said, "I don't know when Uncle Sun goes hunting every time, ah, but what if you send some game to the judge's house?"

    Sun Zhang Xing abruptly looked at Lian Fang Zhou, feeling surprised with his eyes wide open.

    "Fang Zhou, thank you for telling me!" Sun Zhang Xing immediately understood Lian Fang Zhou's meaning as he embarrassingly smiled. Secretly, he felt ashamed in his heart; even a little girl knows this logical reasoning, How could he be so muddled head!

    The judge serves as the village official. The position may not be grand, but it held real power. The sale of land, the collection of crops tax, and the responsibilities of resolving neighborhood disputes, settling household registration, opening road guide, establishing various official requirements on proof, etc., are all managed by him!

  At least, going through him is necessary for the first step.

   Sun Zhang Xing and his wife lived at the edge of the village. Normally, they upheld  the belief of having less matters rather than more, so basically they made sure not to mingle with the village people. Over time, they become more and more isolated.

   Not only do they have no connections in the village, but no one would think of informing them about whatever matters that happen in the village.

   In fact, several times a few households wanted to sell their paddy fields, and sometimes the prices weren't bad. If they grit their teeth, Sun Zhang Xing and his wife could still buy two acres.

   Unfortunately, when they came to know about it, the new owner has already sowed the field. Sun Zhang Xing could only silently regret and envy other people's luck.

   They can only wait until next time. And this "next time" really means forever.

   But if they have a good relationship with the judge, then it is not the same. At least if there's something, the judge would give them a heads up. When it is time to give allowance, they will give more allowance once or twice, rather than always being indifferent and separating business from personal life.

   "Oh, Uncle Sun these words of gratitude I dare not accept!" Lian Fang Zhou smiled.

   So, the atmosphere suddenly got more lively. On the way back, Sun Zhang Hang took the initiative to talk a lot about the Mount Xian Teng matter to Lian Fang Zhou and her sibling.

Gradually they got out of the mountains. The mountain range did not carry a type of unapproachable atmosphere, and crops also began to appear from afar. There were also more footprints on the road.

   Now they're near home. The three people gently sighed in relief, and their hearts relaxed.

   Home is always the dock of the harbor, especially after exhausting themselves for the whole day.

   "I have to go to Shang village to see if Landlord Zhou needs anything and also to go ask several other people, so we're not taking the same road. You siblings go back first then!" At the fork of the road, Sun Zhang Zhang stopped.

   Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze naturally didn't have any objections. The two parties said their goodbye.

   Sun Zhang Xing then took two spotted feathered chickens that hung from his shoulder. One is worth around 4 liang or so. While handing them over to Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze, Sun Zhang Xing became somewhat embarrassed as he laughed, "Take these back with you to have a taste! Ah, today's luck wasn't great. If it was better, I would give you some more... ... "

   Although the chickens weren't large, but the meat was very delicious and fresh. Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze, already feeling delighted, hurried to smile as they gave their thanks.

   Lian Ze hung the two chickens at one end of the pole. The more he looked at them, the more he love them and could not help but talk to Lian Fang Zhou with envy saying, "It'll be great if could hunt like Uncle Sun. There's endless amount of game to be caught! If I could do it as well, that'll be good! Sister, what do you say if I ask Uncle Sun to accept me as his disciple and teach me archery? Will he accept?"

Lian Fang Zhou glanced at him and laughed. "You think about things too simply! Although he can hunt, if hunting is an essential means of making a living, then it's not as good as you thought it would be or else how can you see Uncle Sun's home in that state? If there's paddy field and a stable living, he certainly wouldn't want to go hunting! You want him to accept you as his disciple? Forget about it! This is his ability to survive. How could it be so easily taught to you?"

   Lian Ze suddenly lost his energy and silently sighed out. "A pity!"

   Lian Fang Zhou laughed. "The mountain is full of beasts, wandering here and there. It is very dangerous. Even if he is willing to accept you, I can't help but worry! So we better not think of that. We'll decently live our days!"

   Lian Fang Zhou believes that with her own knowledge of agriculture, their lives will definitely get better and better, and she does not want Lian Ze to have wild thoughts and become a hunter - having it as an occasional pastime is fine, but being like Sun Zhang Xing is too hard!

   The two talked all the way back without noticing time passing by quickly.

   At this time, night has already fallen. The horizon of the sunset displayed only a thin afterglow, an unusually gorgeous orange hue.

   "Sister! Second brother!"

   In the distant village under a big locust tree, two small figures happily shouted, flying toward them as they ran. They didn’t need ask to know who they were.

The two siblings(LFZ&LZ) looked at each other and laughed. Their hearts warmed up a little.

   Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che ran to the two of them, completely panting. Their eyes looked exceptionally clear and bright.

   "Sister, second brother, you're finally back. We waited for so long!" Lian Fang Qing tugged Lian Fang Zhou's dress, as her little face raised up with a smile.

   "Rest assured Sister, the front door is locked! Two old hens were also penned!" Lian Che also added.

   "Good, good!" Lian Fang Zhou laughed. "You both are good children, but next time best obediently wait at home. Don't come out around this time, since it's cold in evening!"

   While they laughed and talked, they showed them the big and red dates, which were very very sweet, and also the large shrimps, as well as the spotted chickens, the mushrooms and yam. Tonight, there's plenty of delicious things!

   Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che were overjoyed. The four people's happy laughter spread as they walked all the way home.

   When they reached home, Lian Fang Zhou took those dates out and let the two little ones wash them for everyone to eat. Sweet dates entered their mouth, making Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che delighted. The two of them didn't forget their brother and sister and brought it to them to eat, so Lian Fang Zhou was completely moved.

After a short break, the four started getting busy.

   Lian Fang Zhou spread the mushrooms on the clean ground, letting Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che sorted them out, picking out those that were crushed. Then, she went to the kitchen with Lian Ze to make dinner.

   Tonight's dishes were quite lavish. The two chicken's feathers were plucked and were then washed. Using a knife, she cut each into four pieces, and together with fresh mushrooms she made a stew.Simultaneously, she boiled the large shrimp in clear water, while simply frying the slice yams!

   Originally, Lian Fang Zhou was prepared to deep-fry the big shrimp, but she can't waste oil ah, so they can only be boiled. There was rather a lot of shrimp. Therefore tonight they’ll only eat half, then after dinner she plans to use a small fire to slowly evaporate the water in the rest, , leaving them tomorrow for Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che to eat. This is because tomorrow they still have to go back to the Mount Xian Teng.

   The four siblings have not eaten such a lavish dinner for such a long time, so when the stewed chicken and mushrooms' aroma permeated throughout the house, the four couldn't help their eyes lighting up. They  looked at each other and burst out laughing.

   At the same time as she laughed, Lian Fang Zhou's heart secretly felt ashamed; she's almost a thirty-year-old person, but she can actually be gluttonous like a child.

After a splendid dinner, the bones and shrimp skins were collected to be used to feed the chickens tomorrow. When hens eat a lot of shrimp, they will lay more eggs.

    After dinner, the four continued to sort the mushrooms, while Lian Che suddenly said,
"Ah, my sister, I forgot to tell you that sister Ah Juan came over to our house and said that Aunt Zhang was looking for you!"
    "Aunt Zhang was looking for me? I'll go over then!" Lian Fang Zhou stood up and washed her hands, heading over to Aunt Zhang's.

    Initially, she wanted to bring some fresh mushrooms and yams to give Aunt Zhang, but then after thinking about it, when the time comes Aunt Zhang and others will definitely ask where did these come from, and if they heard that they went to Mount Xian Teng, they will certainly discourage them from going again.

    Lian Fang Zhou was neither willing to refute their kindness nor willing to give up Mount Xian Teng. Also, she did not want the people in the village to know that they went there. After thinking about it, she decided that it would be better not bring them for now and wait until after they collected enough mushroom to sell for money. Then, she can buy some gifts for them as a long overdue thank you gift.

VGAFH 27.2

Maggie here! Sorry! Was busier than I thought I would be T.T
 Edited by Marci

The road back is not too far away, and also having to carry the two bags of mushrooms, that is strenuous work ah.

So Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze still looked for a few yams to dig out.

These were real wild yams, a bit flat and twisted in some places probably because it grew around a piece of rock, making it deformed.
Each were about 2 or 3 fingers wide. The big ones were half an arm long, while the short ones were palm sized neither neat nor too regularly shaped.
However, it doesn’t matter e if they taste really delicious after being roasted.

    From the cracks of the yams, a warm aroma spread. Inside them looked as white as snow. When eaten, they were powdery and waxy (kinda like mashed potato), whetting one’s appetite.

    This is authentic natural wild food, not to mention Lian Fang Zhou,  it also garnered Lian Ze’s never-ending praise as he ate.

    Then,  the two dug out three or four more yams, cleaned them with water and got some leaves to wrap them to bring back as an ingredient for cooking.

    Full and satisfied, they noticed it was almost time to leave. So the two of them decided not to go anywhere and rest to maintain their physical strength. They chose a place without  sunshine to sit down and rest.

The autumn afternoon's rays warmly shone on their bodies. From time to time, an autumn breeze blew by, making the leaves rustle. The two people grew  a little tired, and unconsciously drifted to sleep, until they were woken up by Sun Zhang Xing.

   They rubbed their eyes as they burst into laughter and greeted Sun Zhang Xing with a few words. They saw Sun Zhang Xing shouldered strings of colorful feathers from a pheasant. There were also two fat hares. The two could not help feel envious. They grinned as they said, "Uncle Sun harvested a lot today ah!"

   Who knew that Sun Zhang Xing would give a wry smile, and lightly sighed replying, "Just some small things, not worth much!"

   "Those still aren't worth much! How could that be!" Lian Ze exclaimed with surprise.

   Sun Zhang Xing just laughed responding,  "Do not worry about it! We're not near the city from here or else the city's restaurants will want a lot of them.  So, you can only sell these to landlord Zhou, Assistant Minister Zhu, Master Zhao, and other major families. All of them know that no one else will buy these besides them. And when I keep for ourselves, I can't scratch it (meaning-don't have the heart to eat them), so the price isn't high! Unless I hunt mountain otters, gray martens, squirrels, deer and the like, the fur can be worth some money. A large goat or a wild boar, will also be worth even more money! Of course, we often don’t have that kind of luck."

   Sun Zhang Xing looked slightly vexed as he explained, so Lian Fang Zhou knew that he told the truth. He was neither being perfunctory with the two siblings, nor  pretending to complain.

   Originally, Lian Fang Zhou had also became somewhat confused; having such a large forest  is equal to an endless treasure trove. Why is Sun Zhang Xing, who has wandered here to hunt for so many years, still so poor?

   Today, she finally understood.

He doesn't recognise the value of the mountain’s resources. He only knew how to hunt,so it was as if half of the treasure became wasted.

And when hunting just having the tool is not enough, you still need luck and time.

   If you do not hit valuable prey, then naturally your harvest will not be worth as much. But most of the large beasts lived deep in the forest, so no matter how good Sun Zhang Xing’s skills were with a bow and arrow, he still did not dare to go further inside  alone.

   And this forest is so vast and full of countless dangers - especially in the evening, so he could only come in the morning and return home in the afternoon. With just that amount of time, how much opportunity would he have to hunt for valuable things? Many hunters enter the mountains, staying for good few days or even ten days.

   No wonder that even when the day has yet to brighten, he has to hurriedly depart to the forest. But this way of fighting for time, in fact only earns an effectiveness that is almost equal to zero.

   After thinking for a short period of time, Lian Fang Zhou completely understood the situation.

   She could not help but look at Sun Zhang Xing with sympathy.
   Sun Zhang Xing just inadvertently glanced over, just happening to meet Lian Fang Zhou's eyes. He could not help, but freeze for a second, before immediately shifting his eyes away. His heart felt slightly a bit unhappy; what did he do to make a little girl feel sympathetic?He didn't mingle around that badly, right?

Chapter 25 -Yun Luofeng was press down.
 Translated by Maggie    Edited by Marci
“Master, there’s someone following behind us.”
On the street, Yun Luofeng was just going toward the General Manor’s direction when suddenly a soft, creeping voice from her soul spread straight into her mind……
“It’s that woman, Mu Wushuang’s henchmen.”
Xiao Mo explained yet again.
Yun Luofeng slightly frowned; her agile body stealthily dashed into a lane at the side. And then, she saw a few silhouettes quickly dashing toward the street where she had just stood.
As they walked, they searched for something in the crowd.

“Seems like I should raise my strength as soon as possible.”
Yun Luofeng lightly wrinkled her brows, eyes flashing with determination.
On this mainland, only one’s fist is the real justification. When the fist is strong, even the emperor has to listen to your orders!
“Alright, they’re gone. I should return now.”
When she saw those silhouettes completely disappearing from the street, Yun Luofeng clapped her hands and walked forward. Just when she was about to walk out of the lane, a black shadow jumped out from over the wall. Yun Luofeng was caught off guard, so with a boom, it crashed right on top her.
By chance, when that black shadow dropped down, his face was right in front of Yun Luofeng’s. Then logically , his lips pressed against the young girl’s lips.
Similarly, his body also pressed the young girl down to the ground. Two bodies were close together. This position could easily make people’s imaginations run wild.
Yun Luofeng slightly squinted her eyes; a dangerous glint flashed from her pupil.
The guy had no reaction whatsoever and still pressed the young girl down on the ground. At this moment, the young girl could feel the other person’s weak breaths.
Seeing that guy still relentlessly pressed down on her, Yun Luofeng’s gaze grew increasingly more threatening. She raised her hands and used force to push the guy away. Under her strength, the guy’s head couldn’t help but hit against the wall. He weakly cried out.
At the same time, the man’s mask fell off……
Even if Yun Luofeng had seen countless beautiful people, she was utterly surprised when she saw his face. He didn’t possess Gao Ling’s cool handsome appearance or like Yun Qingya’s stunning elegance, not even Gao Shaochen’s warm like jade mien.
However, he was completely flawless. If this man’s appearance was brought out to public, it will cause an uproar with countless screaming women left in his wake.
Such sharp eyebrows, he possessed a heroic face with completely perfect facial features as if  they were meticulously carved out. Especially his figure, his opened up black robe revealed those eight pack abs. Any woman who saw this couldn’t help but drool.
His lips carried a tint of red, looking really soft. At the moment his lips were pursed, indicating that he felt immense pain.

“Master, his body constitution is of the spiritual entity!”
Inside the God’s code space, Xiao Mo became excited. He had forgotten that his owner was just molested by this guy.
“Quickly take him back with you. He will be of use to you.”
“Spiritual entity?” Yun Luofeng frowned. She looked at the unconscious man and asked: “What kind of system is that?”
“Master, didn’t I tell you? Your constitution is an empty spiritual body, so your body is really weak, which causes non stop bleeding during cultivation! Only with my special method can you cultivate! This spiritual entity and your body are similar. Only his body can’t cultivate before age of 10. After 10 years old, his strength will be speedily grow.”
Normally, in Long Xiao Mainland, sorcerers start practicing from a young age.  This spiritual entity is different; he has no way of cultivating before the age of 10.
Once past 10 years old, he will cultivate incredibly fast.
