Chapter 464: Nightmare (1)
Mu Yinghua was the happiest so far on the trip. Ever since he received the magic cores that he didn’t expect, he had been so happy that he couldn’t stop smiling. He generously offered a few cores to his two lackeys, who were even more determined to serve him. They had made a fortune even before they entered the gods’ relics, which made the people of the De family and the Shang family greedy.
“Damn it, they’re truly lucky! If we had gotten all the cores…”
“Alright, stop imagining the impossible. Yun Feng has given all the cores to him, although I don’t know why. Is the Yun family really fond of the Mu family?”
The De family and the Shang family’s explorers were wondering. If the Yun family was truly fond of the Mu family, then it remained a question if the De family and the Shang family could keep their status. However, Yun Feng didn’t seem to be extra warm to Mu Yinghua at this moment. They couldn’t figure out her attitude just yet.
“How about this? If Yun Feng keeps looking out for Mu Yinghua after we enter the gods’ relics, then it means that the Yun family truly likes Mu Yinghua.”
The cores of the Magic Beasts were nothing for Yun Feng, who was too strong to care about those things. Her companions seemed quite strong too. Even if she had given the cores to Mu Yinghua, it didn’t mean anything. However, if Yun Feng was still so friendly to him in the gods’ relics, then it would suggest the Yun family’s attitude.
Yun Feng and her companions casually walked in the rear. Instead of walking in the lead by himself, Mu Yinghua tried to approach and talk to her several times. Qu Lanyi had been grim the whole time, and subtly pushed him away every time he approached. Mu Yinghua didn’t dare to come close to Ao Jin, who was handsome, but intimidating. As the Young Master of dragons, he carried a lot of pressure.
Naturally, Mu Yinghua misunderstood Qu Lanyi and thought she was being jealous. He was going to confess his love to them after the exploration. If both of the girls were attracted to him, wouldn’t it be a great thing if he had them both?
Yun Feng saw Mu Yinghua’s expression and knew that he was daydreaming. She put on a cold smile.
“Yun Feng, Qu Lanyi, come visit the Mu family after the exploration. My father will be so pleased to meet you!”
Mu Yinghua’s invitation was exactly what Yun Feng needed. She had been looking for an opportunity to visit the Mu family, to repay them for what they did to Xiaojin over the years. Now that she had been invited, she didn’t have to ask.
“That’ll be great,” Yun Feng replied. Qu Lanyi also nodded, with the same angry expression. Mu Yinghua was so thrilled that he was almost floating.
“Just look at how stupid he is. Master is never going to fall for him!” mumbled Little Fire, and Lan Yi nodded in agreement. So did Meatball on Yun Feng’s shoulder. Yun Feng smiled. Indeed, she would never fall for such a man unless she was blind.
Nothing happened on the rest of the trip across the woods. All three teams gathered in an empty ground that was in front of the mysterious buildings they were going to explore. Everybody looked at the relics in excitement. In front of them was a wide-open gate and a dark space channel that led to nobody knows where. It was like an enormous mouth that was going to swallow any trespasser.
Meatball sat straight on Yun Feng’s shoulder, and nuzzled her cheek excitedly. Yun Feng combed its hair with her finger, and finally calmed it down.
Ovey’s and Shengyao’s teams didn’t do anything. Muqing and Xiaoxiao looked at the black hole warily. The gods’ relics were so dangerous that they had to be prudent with their every step.
“What are we waiting for? Let’s go inside!” said Mu Yinghua, but nobody replied to him. The people of the De family and the Shang family looked at him in disdain. “Are you blind? Don’t you see that the other teams are not moving? If you want to get yourself killed, be my guest! I’m really embarrassed to have you as the captain of the Fengyun Empire’s team!”
Mu Yinghua blushed, and glanced at Ovey’s and Shengyao’s teams, which were both waiting and observing. “I was just… too reckless. Then, let’s just wait and see if they’re going to do anything.”
After saying that, the people of the De family and the Shang family snorted in disdain. Staring at the other two teams, Yun Feng asked Meatball in a low voice, “Is there any trap here, Meatball?”
Meatball shook its head and said, “Nana.”
Little Fire couldn’t help but roll its eyes. “Don’t say things that don’t help!”
Meatball bared its sharp teeth at Little Fire, and Little Fire’s ears pricked. “It said that it doesn’t know.”
Doesn’t know? Yun Feng looked at Meatball in surprise, and Meatball looked back at her innocence, obviously implying that it truly didn’t know.
“Yun Feng!” Yun Feng came back to herself when someone called out to her. Muqing and Xiaoxiao approached her. Yun Feng nodded. “What’s wrong?”
“We were discussing the channel,” said Xiaoxiao. “The gods’ relics are extremely dangerous. It remains unknown whether or not this channel is the entrance. If we reckless enter, we might all be annihilated. We should probably send a few scouts for reconnaissance.”
Scouts or pathetic pathfinders? Yun Feng raised her brows, and Muqing said softly, “We don’t have a choice. Special circumstances call for special methods. It’s the only way to keep the majority safe.”
Yun Feng smiled. “Our team is different from yours. We have to make the decision democratically.”
“How troublesome. The Yun family should’ve claimed the exploration task alone.” Xiaoxiao snorted, and looked at Yun Feng in disagreement. If the Yun family had claimed the task, it would essentially be the royal family, and all the trouble could be avoided. Yun Feng shook her head. “The Yun family is not that ambitious. We’re already satisfied with what we have.”
