However, it’s good to do so. At least while the enemy was still unknown, they wouldn’t fall into a dangerous situation where they were in full view while the enemy is hidden.
“Master, these are the medicinal pills that Ghost Doctor asked me to bring back. She said that they can repair the ruler’s damaged internal alchemy. She said that even if his cultivation is abolished, he can cultivate again. The pills should be taken regularly. When she comes here, she will take a look at his condition.”
Ren Xiang handed the medicinal pills and his heavy mood finally eased a little after he returned. He knew that as long as Master was in charge, with his strength and means, he would surely stabilize the whole Xuanyuan Empire and make foreign enemies dare not invade their territory.
On the other side, Feng Jiu arranged her subordinates into several teams. They didn’t stay in the Phoenix Empire but at their other base, the valley where Bai Xiao and others gathered.
She planned to settle her parents and the Feng Guards there. On the one hand, they would be able to upgrade their strength. On the other, this place was relatively safer.
“Mistress, Luo Yu and his team went to the valley first.” Du Fan came up and told Feng Jiu. There were only a few people in their team. Apart from the Feng Xiao couple, there were only Feng Jiu, Guan Xilin, as well as Leng Hua and Leng Shuang.
In the carriage, Feng Jiu stuck her head out to look at the sky. “It’s getting late. Let’s find a place nearby to have a rest tonight. After catching up on the journey tomorrow, we should arrive at the place.”
“Yes.” Du Fan responded. After exchanging a few words with Leng Hua, the two men found a place ahead of them. They stopped for a rest.
The party sat around the bonfire. Du Fan went to get some wild game and roasted them. Looking at her father’s silence throughout the journey, Feng Jiu asked. “Father, are you reluctant to give up our home?”
Feng Xiao sighed. “My hometown, where I was born and grew up. Now my family is separated and some have perished….. After everything that I’ve experienced, how can I feel relieved in such a short time? It’s dishonest to say that I won’t feel reluctant and distressed.”
At his side, Shangguan Wanrong patted his hand. “Don’t think too much. Home is where the family is. Besides, it’s not that we will never return. So, later when we have a chance, we can still go back, right?”
“I know.” Feng Xiao nodded and said firmly. “In the future, our family will definitely go back!”
Seeing this, Feng Jiu sliced a piece of the roasted meat and handed it to him. “Father, have some!” With that, she cut another piece for her mother. “Have a good rest after the meal. We’ll arrive after a day’s journey tomorrow.”
“Alright.” The two answered while tearing and eating the roasted meat.
Feng Jiu and Guan Xilin walked around after the meal. Looking at Feng Jiu beside him, Guan Xilin asked, “Little Jiu, do you want to go into seclusion to cultivate once we get to the valley?”
“Mm, I’m going to advance to the Celestial stage. I’ll go out when my strength is more stable.”
She spoke, looking into the distance. “Big Brother, you don’t know, I always hope to protect my family. However, with my grandfather’s accident, Little Feng Ye and Sunny’s accident, I suddenly woke up. No matter how strong I am, I can’t always be at their side to protect them. So, while I want to improve my strength, I also hope the people around me, together with the Feng Guard, can also upgrade their strength!”
