Chapter 342: Really annoying!
Gathering qi in the dantian, pouring strength to both fists.
The breaking fist of the 'Art of Breaking body' was about to be released at any moment.
The moonlight was dim, the white-clad youngster's cheeks, under the moonlight, were as pretty as Tiandu's cherry blossom.
Seeing Li Shinian, Li Muyang felt a strong warmth rushing forth from the bottom of his heart, a lump came to his throat, and he was choking back the urge to burst into tears.
This was his little sister Li Shinian!
The little sister who hated him and loved him, bullied him and protected him.
In the illusion, he had countless times imagined seeing Li Shinian again. When the illusion collapsed and he could not find a way out, thinking of the possibility that he may no longer see his parents and little sister Li Shinian again, he could not help roaring to the sky to vent his anger and grievances.
When he finally got out of the illusion and saw the birds and creatures of Flower language plains, he also could not help but want to shout out loud.
He finally came back. He finally has a chance to see his family again.
They were his family. They were the most important people in the world to him.
Li Shinian glared warily at the handsome boy, yelling in an angry voice: "I asked you something, are you deaf? If you don't give your name, I'll call someone over——"
Before her voice died away, Li Shinian had already screamed out loud, "Somebody, help, a thief broke in——"
This was the Li Shinian who always did things that people did not expect.
Have to say that Li Muyang's personality was also somewhat influenced by Li Shinian.
Before he was an innocent and somewhat slow-witted child. Once he has a little sister like Li Shinian, his personality and life had began to change.
"I am Li Muyang." Li Muyang stated aloud.
"You think I'm an idiot? You think I don't know what my brother looks like. If he is so good-looking, would people call him a charcoal?"
"Listen to my voice——"
"You think that just because you can imitate my brother’s voice you could say you're Li Muyang." Li Shinian said irritably. "Who the hell are you? What's your purpose of coming here? I've called people over, if you don't go, you're going to get caught——"
"There's a mole on the bottom of your foot." Li Muyang stated.
Li Shinian was born with a little red mole on the sole of her foot. Only family members knew about this.
"You grind your teeth when you sleep."
"You'll burp when you eat peanuts."
"Big brother——" Li Shinian's eyes brimmed with tears, sobbing: "It really is you?"
"Shinian, it's me——"
Li Shinian threw herself over at Li Muyang.
Li Muyang opened his arms.
Li Shinian rushed forward to Li Muyang like a swallow returning to the woods.
Li Muyang's stomach received a heavy punch.
He hunched over in pain, clutching his stomach.
"Li Muyang, you idiot——"
"You're an idiotic pig——"
"You are perfectly fine, why did you not contact us? Why did you not write a letter back? Why do you have to let people say that you're dead, do you know how worried we are?"
"One forgets his mother after taking a wife, you don't even have a wife yet you've forgotten your mother and little sister——You suddenly appeared like that, should I treat you as a person or a ghost?"
Li Shinian was really furious, pointing and screaming at Li Muyang.
Li Muyang lifted his head up, looking at Li Shinian's angry face with a doting smile.
"My little sister is so beautiful, she is so cute even when she's yelling——"
"Brother——" As Li Shinian was yelling, tears suddenly poured down her cheeks and she threw herself into Li Muyang's arms.
Li Muyang held her tight, with all the strength of his whole body.
"Brother, is it really you? I can't believe it."
"Are you a person or a ghost?"
"Prove it to me?"
"Then I'll find out myself." Li Shinian extended out two fingers of Li Muyang's right hand that he had around her waist and then twisted them. Li Muyang screamed out in agony.
"Brother, you're indeed a person. You're alive. I knew you were alive. The entire Tiandu says you're dead, father said you died, and mother also said you died. But I don't believe it, I told them that you are definitely alive and you will come back——" Li Shinian laid her head on Li Muyang's arm and couldn't stop crying.
"It's my fault. It's my fault——" Li Muyang knew that no matter what he says wouldn't help. He held her tight, gently stroking her hair like when she was a child.
"Shinian, who are you talking to?"
Hearing the noise outside, Luo Qi came out draped with an outer robe.
"Mother——" Li Shinian said tearfully. "My Big brother is back."
"Muyang——" Luo Qi exclaimed.
Li Muyang scampered a few steps then fell to his knees in front of Luo Qi.
"Muyang——" Luo Qi squatted down, tightly hugged Li Muyang and sobbed uncontrollably.
Li Shinian also ran over. The three people huddled together, crying——
In the bedroom, Luo Qi was lying on the bed with a blanket wrapped around her to keep warm, and Li Shinian was sitting on the edge of the bed holding Snowball.
Li Muyang pulled a chair to sit beside Luo Qi, and Luo Qi tightly held both his hands.
Li Muyang began to recount what he had experienced since leaving Jiangnan up to the collapse of the illusion and how he was trapped inside and almost couldn't come back out. He slowly told his sister Li Shinian and mother about his life and his cultivation experiences over this half a year.
Of course, he did not tell them he had been possessed by the divine dragon and how he had fused with the Tear of the Dragon King. He also did not tell them that the little cute Snowball that Li Shinian was holding was the heart of the weak water.
He said all he could say, and did not say a word of what he could not say. There were some things that need to be borne by himself. He did not want to bring about an undeserved calamity to his family.
"Muyang has been through a lot." Luo Qi's eyes were red and teary. "What a few months it has been. Don't go back after this, you should nourish your body. Look at how thin you are now."
"Mother, I've been very well. You don't have to worry." Li Muyang reassured. "Although I have been through a lot, but your son has grown up very quickly. Whether it is martial arts, knowledge or my view, I feel that I have gained a lot. That's what I've been waiting for, and the thing I yearn to do."
"You should still nourish your body." Luo Qi clenched her son's hand and said with a firm face.
"Okay okay okay." Li Muyang nodded. "I will listen to Mother. I'll eat what you make me. I won't be picky about food."
Luo Qi pointed to Li Shinian, "Look, your brother is more obedient than you."
"You have always favoured brother, everything that brother says is right to you." Li Shinian said, pursing her lips.
Luo Qi pinched Li Shinian's little nose. "Shinian is also very obedient, these days thanks to Shinian being by my side——Everyone in Tiandu says that Muyang is not here anymore, they also said that the news came from the palace. Even I believed in the rumours. But Shinian did not believe it at all. She has comforted me all this time, saying that her big brother will safely return."
Luo Qi squeezed Li Muyang's hand, saying in a sorrowful voice: "If Muyang was really gone, Mother don't know how I will live——"
"Mother——" Li Muyang clenched Luo Qi's thing hand, feeling extremely guilty. "It is my fault. I made you guys worried——I wanted to get in touch with you too. But I couldn't find a way——"
"It doesn't matter. I'm glad you're back now. I'm glad you're back. Don't blame yourself." Luo Qi comforted Li Muyang, worried that her son would take things too hard, which would affect his health.
"Big brother, did you really kill Xiaoxin's elder brother?" Li Shinian stroked Snowball's soft white fur, pretending that she did not care. But she was furtively glancing at Li Muyang out of the corner of her eyes.
Her brother's changes were too much. The formerly charcoal-like youngster had unexpectedly turned into such a handsome man.
Also he had entered the most famous Starry Sky Academy in the Divine continent, experiencing things that they could hardly imagine.
Was this really the brother who was always bullied by classmates? Was this really that infamous idiot?
"Shinian, how can you say that about your brother?" Luo Qi interrupted in a scolding tone. "Do you not know how your brother is? How would he hurt other people without any reason? This must not be your brother's doing, your brother can't do such a thing."
"Mother, I am also thinking for brother. If I understand the story, I can explain it to Xiaoxin tomorrow. Although Sister Xiaoxin does not believe that Brother would do such a thing, but, if she asked, my brother have to give an explanation, right?" "
Li Muyang kept silent.
Li Shinian began to panic. "Brother, don't tell me you really——did it? How can you do that? If Sister Xiaoxin asks, you must not admit it——"
Li Muyang calmly looked at Li Shinian. "You don't have to worry about this. If Xiaoxin asks, I will personally explain it to her."
"But, Big brother——"
Li Muyang patted his sister's head and smiled, "Don't worry. It's going to be okay."
Li Shinian's little face turned red. When her brother used to pat her on the head, she would slap his hand away.
Why was her heart beating so unusually fast?
"Well, it must be because my brother has become handsome." Li Shinian thought to herself. "So annoying, what's the good thing about being good-looking? I thought I must beat you up when you come back. Now I can't stand hitting you."
Chapter 343: Reluctant to die!
Li Muyang talked with Luo Qi and Li Shinian until very late at night. Luo Qi asked Li Muyang about everything ever since he left Jiangnan, even the most trial matters. Li Muayng very patiently answered every single question and was not irritated in the slightest.
Being able to talk and laugh with his family was what he wanted most when he was studying at Starry Sky Academy. This hope soared to its peak when the Land of illusion collapsed and there was no path for him to escape.
Let alone talking like they were at this moment, he would be content to watch them from a distance——
Luo Qi's illness had not healed, but her mental state was very good, refusing to sleep despite Li Muyang and Li Shinian repeatedly urging her.
Li Muyang helped massage her for a while, pushing out the damp qi and the stagnant qi inside her body.
When Li Muyang's essential qi had circulated once around Luo Qi's body, Luo Qi was finally sleepy.
Li Muyang tucked her into bed, doused the light, and the siblings tiptoed out of the room.
In the living room, Li Shinian was unblinkingly staring at Li Muyang.
"Big brother——" Li Shinian's voice sweet and soft.
Li Muyang knew it wasn't anything good. "Say it, what do you want?"
Li Shinian was gazing adoringly at Snowball, "Can you give me it? Oh, it's so cute, I'm going to keep it as a pet."
Li Muyang's eyebrows lifted as he mumbled, "This isn't suitable? This——"
"Brother, you don't want to?" Li Shinian bit her lower lip with her pointed teeth. "It's so small, and white, it's obvious a present prepared for girls. Don't tell me this little Snowball is something that you've prepared for another girl——For example a girl of the Cui family?"
Li Muyang, with a wry smile, stroked her head. "This isn't a pet prepared for others, Snowball is not a pet. If you like it, you can play with it for now. Before I return to Starry Sky Academy, Snowball can stay with you. But when I go back to the Academy, you have to give me Snowball back. Because it's not an ordinary pet, it can't live in Tiandu——"
"Hey, Li Muyang, can you find a worse excuse? It's fine if you don't want to give me it, there's no need to say that it can't adapt to the life of Tiandu. Please, we also come from Jiangnan City and we adapted just fine. It's just a dog, what can it not adapt to?"
"It's not a dog——"
"It's not a dog? What is it then if its not a dog? I say its a dog——"
"Okay okay okay. If you say it's a dog then it is a dog." Facing his little sister, Li Muyang was helpless. He was bullied by her before, and now there was still no change.
But, you are holding the heart of the weak water. You think the source of all water is a dog, what about its face?
Snowball, who had been leisurely spitting out bubbles, as though ithad sensed something, stared at Li Shinian with its big round eyes, then looked at Li Muyang, and then swung its short legs about wanting to break away from Li Shinian's arms and attempting to escape over to Li Muyang's side.
Li Shinian held it tight, stopping it from running away.
Snowball aimed a bubble at Li Shinian, and giggled at the fact that its attack had succeeded.
Li Shinian smacked its forehead and said with her voice raised, "I'm talking with my brother, what does it have to do with you? Be quiet."
Li Muyang and Snowball both shut up at the same time. 。
Li Muyang looked at the snowball sympathetically, feeling really sorry for it.
The divine weapon ranked in [Treasure weapons], the precious treasure that everyone in the world wanted to take possession of, his saviour that had repeatedly saved his life, was mistaken by Li Shinian for a pet dog, and also had to bear this sort of humiliating beating——
Snowball looked at Li Muyang innocently, blinking its huge eyes puzzledly, as though saying what is going on? Why didn't this woman let me go and hit me?
"You should be nicer to it." Li Muyang warmly advised. "Look how pitiful it is."
"Of course I'll be good to it. As long as it is something like, whether it is a person or a dog, I will be very good to them." Li Shinian looked at Li Muyang, grinning widely. "But if it's not obedient, for example it wants to run away——I'll slice it up for hotpot. Winter has arrived, eating a pot of dog meat can keep us warm."
Li Muyang helplessly looked at Li Shinian, then at Snowball saying, "Snowball, endure it. Shinian is a very good girl——"
Snowball spat out a bubble to express his dissatisfaction with Li Muyang this owner.
Snowball's head was slapped again.
Li Shinian lifted Snowball up to eye level, glaring fiercely as she warned, "Don't spit on my brother. Don't spit on me. This is the first order that your new owner is giving you."
Li Muyang wiped the saliva off his face and said, "Don't blame it. This is its habit."
"A bad habit needs to be get rid of it. When you were little you pee everywhere, and now you know how to find a toilet, right?"
At ordinary times, Li Muyang was also regarded as having a sharp tongue, he thinks himself as having an unrivalled mouth.
But in front of Li Shinian, he was always at a loss for words and bullied.
It was probably because she knew all his bad points from his childhood?
"All right, all right, you don’t have to look so upset." Li Shinian held Snowball tight in her arms, looking at Li Muyang. "I will feed it well, what does it like to eat? I’ll prepare it for tomorrow."
"It——" Li Muyang did not know what to say.
Snowball was the heart of weak water, the mother of water, it did not necessary need to eat.
However, if he told Li Shinian that it eats nothing, then Li Shinian would certainly eat it——What pet doesn't eat anything? Is a pet that doesn’t eat anything still a pet? It's an immortal?
So, Li Muyang avoided Snowball's stare, whispering: "It eats grass."
"Eats grass?" Li Shinian was surprised. "What grass does it eat? There's no fresh grass in winter. Well, tomorrow I'll pick some fresh lettuce leaves for it to eat."
"Yes, It’s going to love it. Thanks Shinian." Li Muyang whimpered.
"Heh, as I said, as long as I like something, I will try my best to be nice to it." Li Shinian said proudly.
Looking at Li Shinian's little cute face, Li Muyang felt a strong, warm current surging inside him.
They haven't seen in six months, Li Shinian had grown a lot taller, reaching the height of his chin. Fortunately during these six months he had been practicing diligently, and his height had increased quite a lot, otherwise he would lose to her?
Before the age of 10, Li Shinian was always taller than Li Muyang, which was a blow to Li Muyang's confidence.
Her cheeks were thin and her baby fat was gone. Probably due to the lack of rest these days, there were deep dark circles under her eyes.
Thinking of all the things that mother had just said, Li Muyang couldn’t help feeling pain in his heart.
During this half a year of time, he had experienced far too many things. And so had this little girl.
She was originally living happily in the quiet and affluent Jiangnan, where there were teachers that she's familiar with, classmates that she gets along with, streets that she knew well and faces that she recognised. However, because of him, they were forced to leave Jiangnan to come to Tiandu, where she was unfamiliar with the place and people, and everything had to start anew.
They were under great psychological pressure and were likely to meet the storm-like retaliation of the enemy at any time.
The most important thing was that bad news of him came one after another. The last news was that he had died in the illusion——How difficult would that be for a teenage girl?
"Shinian, it has been hard for you." Li Muyang softly said. "If it wasn't because of me, you wouldn't have to go to the unfamiliar Tiandu and live this worrying life. Also, I don't know what's going to happen in the future——"
Thinking of his hidden identity, Li Muyang was constantly worried.
He had fused with the Tear of the Dragon King, but the energy absorbed was still limited. When he fully combined with it, will he become a black dragon who wanted to destroy the Human race?
Also, there were numerous masters and mysterious people in the Divine continent. Could he really keep his identity hidden forever?
If his identity was exposed, then what was waiting for him was probably only death. What about his parents? What about Li Shinian?
Li Muyang did not care about his own life, but he did not want his parents and sister to be drawn into one vortex after another——
"But no matter what, I will try my best. I have worked hard at Starry Sky Academy and had became the apprentice of several masters. They are all very nice to me, gave me a lot of treasures, and also taught me a lot of things. Shinian, I will be very, very powerful later, I will protect you guys——so that no one can hurt you." "
"Big brother——" Li Shinian looked up at Li Muyang, saying softly.
"What's the matter?"
"Did you know? Before you came back, just before tonight, I was thinking, as long as you came back, I am willing to do anything——" said Li Shinian. "Even if my life is shortened, even if I suffer a serious illness, and even if I die, I am willing to. I also secretly made a made a wish to Guanyin Bodhisattva. "
"Li Shinian——" Li Muyang angrily shouted.
Li Shinian's eyes were blurred by tears, she gently rubbed the corner of her eyes, looking at Li Muyang, "I was just thinking about it."
"Seeing that you have come back, I am reluctant to be sick, reluctant to have my life shorten, reluctant to die. I lied to Bodhisattva, do you think Bodhisattva will be angry at me?"
