Chapter 151 – Grandpa, didn’t you say that people have to be honest? (1)
In an instant, Qing Ruyi stopped moving. The willow branches, which were imbued with fiend energy and on the verge of thrashing down on Ruan Qiuqiu, froze mid-air and only displaced the icy raindrops.
Ruan Qiuqiu furrowed her brow. Taking advantage of the other person’s stunned state, she swiftly rolled away on the slippery snow. She picked up the spear that she had thrown to the side, got up from the ground, and ran away.
She turned her head to keep an eye on her attacker, but once she got a clear look, her heart trembled.
That person, who looked like a big sister figure, was crying?
Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t know why that fiend would suddenly become like this. Was it because she had heard Little Yu and Grandpa Mo’s voices? It couldn’t be that she was scared by Grandpa Mo’s threatening words, right?
As those thoughts flashed through her mind, Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t stop running. She couldn’t lower her guard just because she had the good fortune to survive her brush with death.
The blood on her cheek dripped down her chin. There was a tearing pain as the sleet fell on her wound. Ruan Qiuqiu clutched her injured cheek. “Don’t come here. It’s dangerous!”
“No…” Qing Ruyi instinctively shouted. She shook her pale lips. Helpless and scared, she lowered her head. Her light brown eyes even looked pleading. “… Not dangerous. I… I’m not dangerous.”
Ruan Qiuqiu turned her head in surprise. It was only a vigilant glance over there from surprise and she saw that strong fiend, which had been full of killing intent before, was now curled up in a ball in panic.
There were tears in Qing Ruyi’s eyes. She was very flustered and wanted to pull back her willow branches. She looked like a child who had done something wrong and was at a loss. However, she was panicking too much. She had suddenly lost control of the strong willow branches that she had so easily brandished before. The willow branches tangled together and continued to extend out.
Ruan Qiuqiu was very surprised. Before she had time to think more, she ran into a serious-looking little face. It was Mo Yu and… Grandpa Mo?
Ruan Qiuqiu was somewhat stunned when she saw the stone axe-holding man. He was wearing light brown animal skin clothing and standing next to Little Yu.
Grandpa Mo tightened his grip on the stone axe that he hadn’t used in a long time. His short silver and black hair had been messed up by the wind. The age spots on his face were gone. The wrinkles were still there, but there were a lot less of them than before. His voice was still gentle. “Qiuiqu, where’s the danger? Grandpa has become stronger. I can beat those wolf demon brats.”
Due to him accidentally absorbing a lot of spiritual energy from the spiritual energy stone the children had given him, Mo Bugui looked younger now and was much more clear-headed. His death date had also been extended.
Although he still had less than a year to live, he looked closer to his actual age. He hadn’t fully recovered to what a person in their 40’s would like, but he no longer looked like an old person with one foot in the grave.
Hearing him referring to himself as Grandpa, Ruan Qiuqiu was somewhat able to make out the facial features she had seen on Grandpa Mo.
She was very curious why Grandpa Mo had become younger, but she knew that this wasn’t the time to ask this question. She stood in front of him and quickly said in an anxious tone, “… It’s a fiend. Little Yu, Grandpa Mo, run away. I’ll lead the fiend to the Fire Wolf Tribe…”
Before she could finish speaking, Ruan Qiuqiu heard a loud clattering sound next to her. She looked down and saw that Grandpa Mo’s stone axe had fallen onto the snow.
