As time passed, the students returned to their dormitory one after another. Tang Nazhi came back as well.
The moment he saw Shen Yanxiao in the dormitory, he revealed a smile.
"Has everything gone well? Has your teacher thought of a way?" He had waited at the Priest Branch all morning and fortunately, nothing had happened.
Shen Yanxiao smiled and said: "Everything is fine. I have now a way to escape Ouyang Huanyu's Perceptual Magic." If not because Ouyang Huanyu had the support of his magic, she wouldn't be found easily considering her current strength. But now, with the protection of the Moonlight Necklace, she was hundred percent sure that she could slip into the Warlock Branch, even under Ouyang Huanyu's surveillance.
"That's good then. Right, you haven't eaten yet. Let's go to Qi Xia and the others. They asked us to have lunch with them." Tang Nazhi was also relieved. He laughed and stretched out his hand towards Shen Yanxiao's shoulder.
But the next second, he remembered the little guy's real gender, and embarrassingly, withdrew his hand.
Shen Yanxiao didn't know whether to laugh or cry at Tang Nazhi's stiff action. Her mood was rather good as she put out her arms on Tang Nazhi’s shoulders. Smiling, she said: "Let's go and eat then."
[TL Sky: Hahahaha, could you imagine a small body putting their arms around a big guy? XD]
[Editor MangoDragon: yea....just picture a monkey hanging off a human...or tree (does it even matter…) :P]
[TL Raz: That will be the most beautiful and OP monkey then.]
Tang Nazhi's whole body was startled and he immediately resembled a well-behaved kitten. Shen Yanxiao dragged him away from the dormitory, causing his little heart to beat wildly with a thump thump sound along their way.
After knowing Shen Yanxiao's actual gender, he felt as though something was different. Before, he only thought that Shen Yanxiao had a really nice scent. It wasn't like a flowery fragrance or an incense odor; just a faint but pleasing scent. It was totally different from the other groups of smelly teenagers there, which was why he was so fond of being around Shen Yanxiao.
[Background Effect Sky: So maybe I like you. Maybe you'd like me too. If given a chance, I'd stand up and grab you by the hand if I can~]
[Editor MangoDragon: sakura falling slowly, everything in slow motion...the moment you know!!]
But now, he felt that the scent was even more attractive.
Could it be that...
This was the legendary fragrance of a woman?
[TL Sky: *hits head at the wall*]
Tang Nazhi was speechless as he looked up at the sky. Shen Yanxiao was only 13 years old!!! She's simply a wimpy kid who hadn't even matured yet. How desperate was he to think that this little girl's scent was a women's fragrance.
Had it really been a long time since he had touch a beautiful woman to produce such a bizarre illusion?
Tang Nazhi had been looking at the sky the whole way. In the blink of an eye, they had arrived at the previously agreed place with Qi Xia and the others.
The five people ate their meal together. They didn't know where on earth Qi Xia found a chef, but the five of them had unknowingly received special treatment. The food they had just eaten was far more delicious than the cafeteria's food.
After their meal, Shen Yanxiao handed a list of medicinal herbs she had prepared in advance over to Qi Xia, asking him to collect those herbs.
Qi Xia looked at the list of medicinal herbs and his eyebrows slightly rose. Although he knew nothing about pharmaceutical, with his insight alone, he could easily determine the value of these medicinal herbs.
"To collect all the herbs on this list, at least millions of gold coins are needed." Not even mentioning the rest, just the value of the first three precious herbs listed on the list would cost them thousands of gold coins.
"Try to help me out. If you are unable to find the herbs, then I will just think of another way." Shen Yanxiao shrugged her shoulders. The formula for the Blood Feast Potion couldn't be leaked. If she let other people help her find and collect the medicinal herbs, she wouldn't feel at ease.
"I'll do my best. However, some of these herbs cannot be bought with money." Qi Xia said.
Shen Yanxiao knitted her brows. She knew these herbs were not easy to get. Yun Qi had said that even Ouyang Huanyu hadn't succeed getting his hands on all of the herbs in the formula.
"Are these medicinal herbs very important to you?" Qi Xia watched Shen Yanxiao's reaction before he asked.
Shen Yanxiao nodded her head.
