“She is deaf and mute?” Guan Xilin was surprised and looked at the girl lying on the stone table with her eyes closed in amazement . If Little Jiu hadn’t told him, he really couldn’t tell, and looking at her now, the girl was actually quite pretty . “Well, she is Duan Manor’s eldest daughter Yingying . She also has an identical twin sister called Linlin . Although the two sisters look alike, they have different lives . She has been living here alone since she was a young child . This is her courtyard and I only happened to chance upon it . ”
Upon hearing this, Guan Xilin nodded and glanced at the girl with sympathy in his heart . He didn’t say much and after he looked away, he signaled for Feng Jiu to sit down .
“Little Jiu, sit down with me and let’s have a good chat . How did you end up in Shun Yan City? I heard from the people outside that you came here to treat City Lord Duan? What’s wrong?”
“Elder brother, you really know me so well . ” Her eyes crinkled up as she smiled at him and spoke: “We haven’t seen each other for a very long time so you don’t know how much has happened in the past two years . That year after I left the academy… . ”
The sworn siblings hadn’t seen each other in such a long time, and Feng Jiu gave a rough overview of what had happened during this period . Finally, after Guan Xilin had heard what Feng Jiu said, he nodded suddenly .
“I see, that’s why I’ve bumped into you here . You’re here for the Exquisite Seven Colour Flower . Even though you have been through a lot over the last two years, at least you have finally been reunited with your mother, and she’s still alive isn’t she?”
She sighed softly and said: “Yes! Nothing else matters! My mother is still alive and I believe all these matters will smooth over eventually . ”
“By the way, didn’t you discover some clues about the whereabouts of your father? Did you find out anything later on?” She asked .
Guan Xilin shook his head: “No, it’s too hard, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack . ” He paused and looked at her: “Little Jiu, sometimes I can’t help but think, is it because my father doesn’t want to return? Otherwise why hasn’t he come back to take a look after so many years?”
“Elder brother, don’t give up . You must have faith in your heart . Didn’t you once say that you will find him whether he returns or not?”
“Yes, I did say that I will find him, I must find him!” He said firmly, then he laughed: “Alright…alright, let’s not talk about this anymore . Little Jiu, so my adoptive mother has been found then? When are you going back? I will go with you . ”
“The Exquisite Seven Colour Flower is here, but I still have to go to Sky Mountain to find another elixir herb . After I have gathered these elixir herbs and expelled the residual poison in my mother’s body, we can return . I think my father will no doubt be very happy to see us reunited . ”
As she thought of this scenario, she couldn’t help but look forward to it and hoped that day would come soon .
“That’s for sure!” He nodded and agreed: “Since you are going to Sky Mountain, then I will go with you! After that, we will go home together!”
“Alright, but I have to go to Hell’s Palace to look for Ah Ze . He went back some time ago to deal with some things . I thought I can go to Hell’s Palace to look for him once everything here is settled and we can go to Sky Mountain together . ”
“Sure, no problem . Then we will stay in this courtyard while we are here! I will be in charge of your safety from here on now!” He said, then stood up and patted his chest .
