Girls were much more meticulous than guys, especially those that had just fallen in love. Wang Dong'er discriminated against Wang Qiu'er and her identical looks. Right now, this discrimination grew even deeper.
She lowered her head subconsciously, and her body turned slightly rigid. That was because she saw Wang Qiu'er's bloodstained clothing strewn all over her place.
Those fragments were once part of her clothing? Then she's…
As she thought till here, she couldn't take it anymore. She walked in front of the test and took a peek.
As she peeked in, she bit her lower lip with her teeth and her face turned even paler.
Han Ruoruo was also beside the tent. She was a control-type soul master, so naturally she couldn't be guarding the perimeter. She clearly saw what Wang Dong'er did. She rushed up a few steps and whispered, "Dong'er, don't think blindly. The matter was critical, and he had to adapt. It seems that they've gone through more than one fight. I believe those fights were quite intense too. Wang Qiu'er must have suffered injuries. Look at how bloody her clothing is. A normal person would have died from such extreme blood loss."
Wang Dong'er shook her head slightly and glanced at Huo Yuhao before she replied, "Sister Ruoruo, I'm not thinking blindly. I believe in Yuhao. He's not that kind of person."
Han Ruoruo looked into her eyes and was stunned to realize that she wore a clear and serious expression as she said that. Her light blue eyes were extremely beautiful.
She couldn't help but caress the younger woman's head and smile, "Huo Yuhao is really lucky to have such a girlfriend like you. If I were a guy, I would've given up everything to challenge him for you. However, you need to watch your man at times. While Yuhao isn't some handsome bloke, his talents cannot be matched by most people. There are many girls that he'll attract."
Wang Dong'er shook her head and looked at Huo Yuhao. She said gently, "I trust him."
Han Ruoruo hugged her and didn't say anything else.
Wang Dong'er squatted down beside Huo Yuhao again and said to Cai Mei'er softly. "Dean Cai, how's Yuhao?"
Cai Mei'er was completely relaxed at this point, and replied, "He's fine. His body is just a little weak, and his soul power has almost been completely exhausted. However, there aren't really any injuries on him. There shouldn't be any problems. He just needs some time to rest before he'll recover."
Wang Dong'er twisted her head to look at Wang Qiu'er. She said, "Take a look at her too."
Cai Mei'er was stunned. Even though she wasn't with the team earlier, she knew about the conflict between Wang Dong'er and Wang Qiu'er. For Wang Dong'er to spout such words revealed her kindness.
Cai Mei'er came to Wang Qiu'er and shifted her further into the tent, away from Huo Yuhao's legs. After that, she crawled into the tent and lifted Wang Qiu'er's body.
Wang Dong'er retrieved her own portable tent and moved Huo Yuhao inside so that he could sleep more comfortably. After finishing this, she also felt a wave of fatigue.
"Ah!" Cai Mei'er's exclamation shocked everyone.
Wang Dong'er rushed into the tent to find out what was going on.
She only heard Cai Mei'er shouting, "Her injuries are serious. These wounds were all fatal! But they were stitched up well, and the blood loss was stopped in time. Her body signs are normal. Fortunately, the wounds are no longer fatal, even though her injuries are still serious."
After some time, Cai Mei'er exited the tent. She said, "They indeed met strong enemies. However, I don't know if that was the work of those evil soul masters. This place is quite far from where we were. I'm guessing that these dead soul beasts should have fought them. Wang Qiu'er suffered several deadly wounds. Fortunately, her blood loss was stopped in time, and she managed to preserve her life. Furthermore, there seems to be a strong life power in her body that's supporting her recovery, and she's very tough physically. With sufficient rest, she can recover. She's been changed into Huo Yuhao's clothing. I guess he helped stitch up her wounds. This kid is really meticulous. He's indeed a soul engineer, the wounds were bound nicely. Dong'er, he had to adapt given the situation. Don't think too much into it."
Wang Dong'er shook her head slightly and smiled, "I overthought things when I saw them before, but I'm fine now. I trust Yuhao. He's not that kind of person."
Cai Mei'er smiled before she said, "Alright. Guys, take this opportunity to rest. I'll guard this place tonight. Today has really been taxing on all of us."
Zhang Lexuan smiled and replied, "Fortunately, you're around, and everyone's safe."
Cai Mei'er answered, "The most important thing is that everyone's safe. Lexuan, you're tired, too. Go and rest."
Zhang Lexuan acknowledged her words and replied, "Alright. I'll take over for you in two hours."
Everyone surrounded the two tents and sat down before entering their cultivation states. Wang Dong'er guarded Huo Yuhao's tent. She didn't look at Wang Qiu'er's tent anymore. In her heart, she was really not bothered by what she had seen earlier.
Wang Dong'er was a clever lady. The greatest strength of an intelligent woman was that she wouldn't find problems for herself. She knew that many things must have happened between Huo Yuhao and Wang Qiu'er throughout the day, and they must have gone through many intense fights. However, she was just delighted that he had managed to survive. Furthermore, she had spoken from the bottom of her heart just now. Since she understood Huo Yuhao, she trusted him completely. With this trust, she naturally didn't need to think too much. She also didn't want to know what had happened between Huo Yuhao and Wang Qiu'er earlier. As long as he was fine, she was satisfied.
It was inevitable for women to feel jealous. However, the smart and confident ones were more resistant in this aspect.
For some reason, Wang Dong'er felt more open-minded following a temporary heartache after she saw Wang Qiu'er in Huo Yuhao's clothes.
She knew that she had been very mindful of Wang Qiu'er earlier because they looked identical. She had the appearance of the Goddess of Light that Huo Yuhao had fallen in love with at first sight.
However, there could only be one Goddess of Light, which was the one developed from her martial soul fusion skill with Huo Yuhao. Was appearance really so important? If that was the case, the equally ravishing Ju Zi would have captured Huo Yuhao's heart before he knew about her identity as the Goddess of Light. However, he still remained very prim and proper with her.
He didn't start anything with her. After two and a half years, his heart was still with Wang Dong'er. What did she have to worry about?
It had to be the intense jealousy, or perhaps even the discomfort that enabled her to resolve her dilemma. She didn't suspect anything, and even accepted Wang Qiu'er now. At least, she didn't feel the same hostility towards Qiu'er that she had before.
Wang Dong'er also slowly entered deep meditation with her newfound acceptance. A slight undulation of the aura of light surrounded the tent and made the temperature inside it warmer.
They were finally rid of troubles. This night was especially peaceful.
In the meantime, Cai Mei'er, Zhang Lexuan and Han Ruoruo took turns standing guard. They didn't wake anyone else up.
When Huo Yuhao woke up from his deep sleep, he felt extremely sore, and had a splitting headache. His soul power had only recovered by thirty percent, but he was no longer as weak as before.
As he opened his eyes, he was a little lost as he looked at the dim blue ceiling of the tent. Where, where am I?
He didn't want to move because of his aches, but the scent in the tent reminded him of someone, because it was too familiar.
"Dong'er, Dong'er!" Huo Yuhao shouted almost immediately, and struggled to sit up.
Even though he didn't have any injuries, he was still very dizzy as he sat up. He almost fell back down.
The curtains to the tent opened, and a surprised face peeked in. "Yuhao, you're finally awake!"
Wang Dong'er bent her waist and entered the tent. She was secretly delighted. Yuhao called my name first after he awoke.
After seeing Wang Dong'er, Huo Yuhao didn't even think, and reached out for her. He pulled her into his arms and hugged her tightly.
Wang Dong'er was also stunned by his passion. However, she hugged him back with even more force after she froze momentarily.
"Dong'er, do you know something? I'm really scared." Huo Yuhao muttered softly.
Wang Dong'er was stunned. She felt a little weird. I should be the one who's scared, right?
"I was scared that I wouldn't see you again. I was almost on the verge of death twice, but I managed to survive in the end. Dong'er, I really missed you." As he spoke, he hugged her even tighter.
No matter what strong enemies he faced, he had always managed to maintain his composure. However, he was filled with an indescribable sense of happiness and bliss when he saw Wang Dong'er again after narrowly avoiding death. He also recited his deepest feelings to her.
Wang Dong'er smacked his shoulder, "Idiot, why did you take that risk? Why didn't you stay with the rest of us? Why didn't you bring me along?"
Huo Yuhao didn't answer her questions. That was because he knew that she knew the answer.
The two of them hugged tightly just like that and felt each other's heartbeat. Their hearts were finally together after they reunited and established their relationship. In Huo Yuhao's heart, the figure that belonged to Goddess of Light now finally and completely belonged to her.
