Chapter 82 – Little Liu Huo (1)
Zuo Nuo dazedly held the blueprint, dashing off to choose some ores from the storage room.
For the next few days, Yang Jian brought the Howling Heaven Hound to mine ores for the day, coming back at night to hand them over to Ji Fengyan. Meanwhile, Zuo Nuo researched how to forge the Triple-Bladed Double-Edged Lance. After some time, he managed to make a bit of progress and had already started forging.
At first, the guards in the residence were full of curiosity about Yang Jian but didn’t dare to show it too much in front of Ji Fengyan. They could only secretly sneak off to the room where Yang Jian stayed in the middle of the night and silently take a peek.
Although that room was given to him by Ji Fengyan, Yang Jian basically didn’t need to sleep or eat any food. When he came back everyday, he would just stiffly stand in the middle of the room with unblinking eyes. Even the Howling Heaven Hound who laid down on the floor was more animate than him.
After five days, Zuo Nuo handed the completed Triple-Bladed Double-Edged Lance over to Ji Fengyan. Originally, he was an extremely thin man, but after the intense labour of those several days, his entire face was clearly despondent. When the other guards curiously looked at him about it, Zuo Nuo would just spiritlessly wave his hand.
He was just a part-time blacksmith and the first task that his lady gave him was so complicated… His heart really felt bitter!
Opposite of the tragic Zuo Nuo, Ji Fengyan was completely satisfied about the Triple-Bladed Double-Edged Lance. Casually taking out a container of flowing gold ink rom her Spatial Soul Jade, she began drawing a series of runes on the Triple-Bladed Double-Edged Lance with a brush.
When all of the runes were drawn out, that originally normal and somewhat bizarre Triple-Bladed Double-Edged Lance seemed to be completely covered in a silver light. Looking at it with satisfaction, Ji Fengyan dashed off with it to look for Yang Jian, not even noticing Zuo Nuo’s flabbergasted expression at all.
“Hey, little Nuo Nuo, your blacksmithing skills seems to be getting better and better. That thing really looks domineering!” A guard joked.
Zuo Nuo had a face of innocence. He could guarantee that when he handed the Triple-Bladed Double-Edged Lance over to Ji Fengyan, that thing absolutely didn’t look as domineering as it did now!
The devil knew what weird magic his lady once again used to cause that thing to change like that.
If Zuo Nuo knew about a thing called “Released Light”, perhaps he wouldn’t have been so confused.
Ji Fengyan dragged the Triple-Bladed Double-Edged Lance through the courtyard while Bai Ze followed at her side with a galloping sound. Suddenly a figure appeared in front of her vision.
Under an old tree in the courtyard, Liu Huo rested there in slumber. He sat there, leaning against the tree, his simple silver grey clothes smeared with a bit of dirt, those long eyelashes of his casting a light shadow over his tightly shut eyes. As light shone down from between the tree’s flowing leaves and landed on his exquisite little face, it almost looking as if his face was covered in a layer of starlight.
“This kid.” Ji Fengyan couldn’t help but laugh as she looked at Liu Huo who slumbered in dreamland. She made a shushing motion towards Bai Ze and then tiptoed over. Squatting down next to Liu Huo and seeing him happily sleep away, the depth of her eyes flashed with mischievousness.
Picking up a fallen tree leave from off to the side, Ji Fengyan lightly swept it under Liu Huo’s nose.
The sleeping Liu Huo slightly furrowed his brows as his nose twitched but didn’t wake up.
Feeling that it was interesting, Ji Fengyan did it once again.
In an instant, Liu Huo’s tightly shut eyes suddenly burst open, his pair of crimson-coloured eyes which carried a powerful killing intent suddenly clashing with Ji Fengyan’s amber-coloured ones!
She became a bit dazed.
Liu Huo quickly realized that the person in front of him was Ji Fengyan. Feeling somewhat shocked in his heart, he unconsciously covered his eyes.
