Lu Qingyu’s plan was perfect. After returning to his territory, he would immediately close the border to the Devil Realm. Even with Yao Jiuxiao’s strength, it would be impossible to forcefully tear open the realm’s boundary within a short amount of time.
As long as he had ten to twenty years, Lu Qingyu could raise the child as a proper devil race member. When the time came, all the dust would have been settled, and Yao Jiuxiao would be powerless to change the result.
On the first day on the set, the filming had not yet to be officially started. The crew was busy preparing for the opening ceremony under the deputy director’s supervision. The opening ceremony started on time at eight o’clock, but the venue had been full of people more than one hour prior.
Si Yue arrived in a low-key manner just before seven o’clock. He was now sitting in his exclusive lounge. As the male lead, he didn’t have to be busy, and simply needed to come out to show his face when the time came.
As he spoke, the black-robed man reached out to his storage space item. After suffering the great change, he had almost nothing left on his body, only some spiritual herbs and medicines.
Meng Qi also reached out for her own storage space to take out the medicinal ingredients she prepared beforehand. “Huh?” Meng Qi suddenly froze. She raised her eyes and looked at the black-robed man: “None of the medicinal ingredients can be taken out.” She asked: “What about you?”
Cheng Yuanjing was very angry. A flame was burning under his calm facade, which he forcefully suppressed. But when he lowered his head and met Cheng Yujin’s innocent eyes, he suddenly found no outlet for his burning anger.
Cheng Yuanjing knew well that she was pretending. This girl was sleek and cunning and had countless tactics to deceive others. She was especially best at confusing a man’s mind, including how she used a coquettish and subservient look.
After announcing the starting time for tomorrow, Fu Yunruo ended the live stream. The time she chose to broadcast her live stream was not a popular one. She started before seven in the morning and ended at around ten o’clock. At these hours, the majority of people were still dreaming in bed or rushing to work. This also the time when students were at school, so the traffic in general was the lowest. The peak time for a live streaming platform was on weekends, public holidays, and after 6 pm on weekdays.
This year’s snow had been falling longer compared with previous years. After three days of continuous fall, the snow showed no sign of stopping and was getting heavier instead. Almost the entire Demon Realm was covered in snowflakes, turning the scenery into a boring white-clad world.
An old wooden door suddenly squeaked open. Storm-engulfed snowflakes blew into the building, followed by the cold air that shook the dim candlelight.
The tea on the stove was still gurgling and bubbling. Cheng Yuanjing glanced down through the water vapor and said: “It seems that you were very preoccupied when I came in. Sit down and pour me a tea.”
Cheng Yujin’s eyebrows jumped, and she quickly instructed Du Ruo to remove the boiling tea. Cheng Yujin sat next to Cheng Yuanjing in an obedient manner, like a good little girl. She raised her head and smiled flatteringly: “Ninth Uncle, this tea has been brewed for a long time and already old. Ninth Uncle is a man of both literary and military talent, truly a peerless of your generation. I admire Ninth Uncle so much. How can I let you use inferior things? Du Ruo, change to new water.”
“Hey!” The black-robed man finally became impatient. “Where should we go now?”
“This is my first time here.” Meng Qi said seriously. “Moreover, according to the legend, every time the barrier is opened, the situation inside will totally change. So no one knows what they will face the next time they enter the barrier, or what they should do there.”
Chi Wen’s small body was as red as a boiled crayfish. After a long time, he finally got rid of the woman’s harassment, crawled to the innermost part of the bed, and curled with his back facing outward.
This woman is so hateful! He very kindly comforted her, but she treated him this way!
Did she think he doesn’t need a face?
He is furious!
Outside the barrier, the peach blossom demon kept calling the name of the two stone demons as she anxiously walked around in a circle. It was very urgent! These two stone demons were even more reclusive than most old demons. They could hole inside their territory and didn’t come out for weeks to come. Even if they came out, they did it without schedules or signs. She was obviously their closest neighbor, but even she only saw them very rarely.
If it weren’t for the situation, she wouldn’t come to disturb them either. Now, only the two stone demons could help. Thinking of this, the peach blossom demon called out their names again.
