After I dumped the villain - Chapter 76
“Boss, there are jewelry sellers in front of you. Now, gold, jewelry and antiques are not worth much. I heard from the people under the mountain that they have to prepare a gift for marriage. Buy an engagement gift for Su Mian!” Luo Qi said excitedly.
Marriage? Engagement gift? What was he talking about? Su Mian gritted her teeth and smiled, “Xiao Qi, that’s worthless. Even if one wanted to have an engagement gift, they should have a ninth-level crystal core.”
When she died in her previous life, the highest level Elemental Beast was only eighth-level. There was no ninth-level Elemental Beast at all.
From where the crystal core would come from? She only wanted to dig a pit for Luo Hansheng to jump in.
“Okay, I’ll find you a ninth-level crystal core as an engagement gift in the future,” Luo Hansheng nodded. The crystal cores are the most valuable, he must send the best one to her.
“Boss, no, what if there are no ninth-level Elemental Beast?” Luo Qi was so anxious that he said, “Seventh-level crystal core is the highest now. It can’t be higher, otherwise you won’t have her as your wife.”
Su Mian’s eyes widened and she desperately stared at him. Luo Xiao Qi, If you have trouble in the future, your sister will never save you!
“Ninth-level it is, Luo Hansheng’s woman deserves the best,” the man said, a flash of arrogance flashed under his eyes. As long as Xiao Mian was happy, even if he was picking the sun, he could get it for her.
“Go and keep buying.”
“Buy, buy, buy!” Luo Qi rushed to the front.
Luo Hansheng nearly bought all the jewellery and antiques in the base, and piled them all in her room.
“Sooner or later, the end of the world will come to an end. Jewelry, antiques, and other collections would be useful then,” the man said while Luo Qi piled all the toys he bought on the bed, looked at the filled room, and nodded in satisfaction.
“After seven days, we go into the mountain.”
Su Mian stared blankly at the room.
Were all these gifts for her?
Looking at the furry bears piled up on the bed, and the antique and jewelry all over the place, Su Mian pressed her forehead. Somehow, she was a little elated and happy. It seemed that she had received so many gifts for the first time.
The next day, Luo Hansheng didn’t call Su Mian and chose to retreat.
Su Mian practiced for a day, and when Luo Hansheng didn’t go out, she quietly slipped out of the base and returned directly to Hantan Village.
When she came back, she met old man Mu who was up early. The old man took care of the flowers, plants and vegetables in the glass house. When they saw each other, both were surprised as they saw the power of the elements from each other.
“Girl, good, good,” the old man of the Mu family touched his gray beard and nodded happily. At a young age, she became a fourth-level ability-user, her talent was very good.
“Grandpa Mu, why did you get up so early? Is Mu Gui home?” Su Mian was also a little surprised that the old man was actually a fourth-level ability-user. After knowing that, she wouldn’t have to worry about home even if she was on a mission.
“I feel less sleepy because I am older. Xiao Gui is resting. This time I should be able to break through the late stage of level 4.” The old man said with a smile, “Su Mian, your grandmother is missing you very much. Go home quickly.”
“Ah, okay!” Su Mian went home in a hurry. Grandma Su got up early, cooked porridge in the kitchen, washed the rice with water, and then took out the pickles in the refrigerator.
Su Mian felt sour when she saw that even though she had left so many supplies, her grandmother was so frugal. She smiled, ran over, and hugged her, “I’m back, grandma. I want to eat something delicious.”
“Xiao Mian?” Grandma Su turned back in surprise, pulled Su Mian, and looked at her. When she saw that she was safe and sound, she sighed in relief, “What do you want to eat, grandma will make it for you.”
“I like everything grandma makes,” Su Mian said. She took out the fruits and vegetables she had picked from the space, stuffed them in the bamboo baskets, and blinked her big black eyes, “These must be eaten quickly, or they will rot.”
“Okay, okay,” Grandma Su went to cook cheerfully.
Su Mian and her grandma ate while talking.
“Your uncle Hongqi made tables and chairs with the village head and Liu, and took them to the base to exchange for food. The business is quite good.”
“Grandma Mu is teaching Xiao Pang and Huzi to read.”
“Do you like the grandson of the Mu family next door?”
When the topic turned to Mu Gui, Su Mian almost choked and she shook her head desperately, “No, we are friends.”
“Speaking of him, Mu Gui is really nice, polite, and good-looking, and his family is kind. If you really like him, grandma is very open-minded. Now in this world, there must be no waste.”
Grandma Su was a little worried. Although Xiao Mian was young, they were in the doomsdays, so it was also good to get married early.
“Grandma, I’ll tell you about the harvest of our trip to Ningcheng,” Su Mian was horrified and changed the subject.
“Although the harvest is great, you still need to pay more attention to safety,” Grandma Su urged.
“I know, grandma, I am very sorry,” Su Mian held her arm and said coquettishly.
“You child, you just went out and learned how to be coquettish,” Grandma Su couldn’t help but smile and poke her forehead.
Su Mian froze for a moment, and smiled silently. Now it seemed that the end of the world wasn’t so terrible.
Luo Hansheng didn’t send someone over. Su Mian just stayed at home all the time. She worked as her grandmother’s servant, planting vegetables, cleaning up the room and cooking. With her grandma, she had a relaxed life for several days.
On the evening of the sixth day, Mu Gui’s ability broke through the late stage of the fourth-level. The whole cold pool was full of green wood elements, and flowers and trees grew wantonly.
A breakthrough? As soon as Su Mian’s eyes opened, she went out of the room and saw Mu Gui coming out of the next door.
“You broke through?” The two said in unison and then looked at each other with a smile.
“I heard that you and Lao Luo were okay, so I retreated. I realized that I was still too weak,” Mu Gui said with a gentle smile.
“You are already very strong. Now that there are only two fifth-level ability-users in China, you can at least rank in the top ten.” Su Mian gave a thumb up and said with a smile, “You’re a wood ability-user. How can you let others live if you have too much fighting power?”
“My power attributes are not strong or weak. I was too comfortable before. Now because we don’t practice anymore, I am afraid that sooner or later, we will be devoured by Elemental Beasts.”
“By the way, Mu Gui, can you recognize my natal plant?” Su Mian said, stretched out her palm and showed him the natal plant.
“The vine is still blooming? Your power has entered the intermediate level, this should be the prototype of the native plant,” Mu Gui was slightly surprised.
“You wait, I’ll ask Grandpa.”
The old man Mu was sitting in the glass room, playing with the antique radio, receiving information from various channels.
“Flowering vine?” The old man touched his beard.
“It seems that my grandfather mentioned that there are some rare species in our natural plants, which are extraordinary from birth. The plant is similar to what you mentioned. It is a young bud at the beginning, and it gradually grows into a leaf. Then it will evolve into a vine. Finally, it will bloom into the most beautiful rootless flower in the world. It is said to be extinct. That flower is called Sui Han. It grows colder day by day. It is a rare healing flower in the world. It has the miraculous effect of flesh and bones.”
(TL note: Sui Han. Sui= Annual Han= Cold ⇒ Annual Cold.)
“Sui Han?” Su Mian and Mu Gui stared at each other.
“But Sui Han is a wonderful flower recorded in ancient books. I don’t know about it, but it almost looks the same. If the aura of the world didn’t change, this kind of flower would exist. This flower was associated with the spirit spring, which only bloomed in the eyes of Lingquan spring. Now, the power of elements is turbid. Without the precipitation of an aura of hundreds or thousands of years, there will be no spiritual spring or cold weather. Don’t think about it. That’s how much merit one needed to accumulate to awaken such a natural plant,” the old man waved his hand after he said that.
Su Mian and Mu Gui left the glass house.
Su Mian was silent, she had a clear spring in her space which was at least hundreds of years old.
She had no power in her previous life. After unintentionally opening the gourd space in this life, she awakened the wood power and found that it was healing wood ability.
Was her natal plant really the flower of healing?
