Black angel - Chapter 7 Boiling Spring Township
The next morning, Xinran and his party continued their journey. The Red Eagle’s troops also immediately pulled out, keeping a distance of 500 meters with the former.
When the sun set, the forest came to an end, and in front of it was a valley surrounded by mountains.
Yulia pointed to the place where the cooking smoke rose and said excitedly, “the front is the boiling spring village!”
The red hawk’s troops arrived immediately. They were about to go down the mountain, but Song Xi stopped them. He reminded him, “boiling spring village has just been attacked by a demon. A large group of strangers rushed in, I’m afraid, causing misunderstanding. It’s better to send two representatives to the village with Yulia, and then let the others go down the mountain after getting in touch with each other. ”
The red eagle thought for a while and felt that Song Xi’s suggestion was very necessary. He made up his own mind and said, “Su, you go with me!”
Xinran didn’t have a good temper: “I’m not your slave. I’ll do what you say!”
Song Xi was afraid that Princess Hongying would have a temper attack, so she laughed and said, “let’s go with my sister Hongying! After all, women are good at talking. “Hong Ying sneered,” Lord song, please stay at the camp. It’s better for both sides. ”
Song Xi understood that Hongying didn’t trust her and wanted to keep her as a hostage. She said calmly, “whatever you want.”
Red eagle looked back. Xinran and Yulia were walking down the mountain. They hurriedly drank: “Su, wait for me!”
He ran after him.
A flat gravel road leads to the deep valley. The road sign at the mouth of the valley has the words “front: boiling spring village, left: Zhongru cave”. Walking into the valley, there is a lush green alfalfa field and oat field, the latter is mainly used for wine making.
Around the village, the fence is covered with pink roses, not only beautiful, sharp thorns also constitute an effective protection net.
According to Yulia, there are about 20000 households in the valley, of which more than 60% are women. Now what you are going to is just one of the thousands of villages belonging to the town.
A centaur boy, who was drinking water at the entrance of the village, found a stranger coming and ran away in a panic. After a while, a team of Centaur patrols in leather armour came out. They held spears and looked at Xinran and others with obvious hostility.
The red hawk did not get the welcome in accordance with the identity of the king’s daughter. Instead, she was looked at as a robber, and her face suddenly became gloomy.
Yulia quietly reminds her that centaurs do not welcome human beings to visit, and that it is an extraordinary time to ask her to be patient as much as possible.
At this time, the leader of the spear team stepped forward. It was a pretty little brunette with a long bow over her shoulder and a steel spear in her hand. She did not see Yulia standing behind the Red Eagle, her eyes focused on Xinran’s face. The front hoof is restless to step on the ground and seems ready to rush up and stab him with a spear.
Yulia stares at the black haired girl’s face and suddenly exclaims, “Luna!”
The black haired girl turned her head in surprise, fixed her eyes on Julia, and suddenly threw down her spear and rushed in screaming. Yulia went up and hugged her tightly.
“Goddess! You are back at last
The girl named Luna kisses the people who come back from afar.
With tears in her eyes, Yulia took Luna’s hand and couldn’t wait to ask, “are you ok? Luna, I thought I’d never see you again in my life! Don’t you think Daddy Dongqi is still alive? Where’s Wenji? Is she OK? ”
Luna looked gloomy and bowed her head: “a lot of things happened in your absence. I’ll tell you in detail later Are those two human beings your friends? ”
Yulia nodded and introduced red eagle and Xinran to her.
Luna heard that the Red Hawk is a female general from Amazon, showing an incredible expression, “so you are your royal highness, much younger than we imagined.”
Red Hawk has been for the other party did not recognize her and dark anger in the heart, smell speech thought that the Centaur girl despised her, will attack. Fortunately, Luna added in time: “it’s much more beautiful than you think.”
Red Eagle immediately turned angry into joy, light talk said: “you flatter.”
But to Xinran, Luna showed more surprise. Especially when Yulia told her unabashedly that the exotic youth was his master, her eyes even flashed a trace of anger. With a deep look and a happy look, Luna ran quickly to a big and powerful Centaur soldier and whispered a few words.
The Centaur nodded, turned and strode towards Xinran, stretched out his right hand and said in a voice: “welcome to you, human friend!”
He had a scar on his face, which made his rough face look even more frightening. Carrying a double-edged, long handled Tomahawk rarely used by centaurs on his shoulders, his solid muscles are exaggerated through his linen vest, and no one can doubt that he has the same strange power as the ogre.
When Xinran took his hand, she immediately felt caught in the vice.
(Juan’s family I’m still at Luna’s mercy! ）Yulia smiles bitterly and looks at the giant man who sincerely gives Xinran a powerful man.
Luna caught Yulia’s emotional change, thinking that she was worried about the vulnerable human youth, and her mouth was filled with a smile of schadenfreude. The man with muscles in his head is her husband, a famous Centaur warrior in boiling spring.
Before she got married, Luna was Yulia’s homosexual lover. After so many years, she still had feelings beyond friendship for Yulia. So when she heard about Xinran’s identity, she could not help but feel jealous, so she instigated Juan to “bully” him.
“Hello! Big guy. ”
Gladly withdraw the palm of the hand with indifference.
Juan’s facial muscles twitch, showing shock. He has tried his best, but the other side easily broke free, obviously the strength is far above himself.
Luna found her husband frustrated and said with a hearty smile, “Yulia, you brought the monster home.”
Yulia glared at her angrily and said, “you are still so naughty, Luna. I thought I would become more stable after marriage.”
Luna smiles indifferently and invites everyone to go to the village to have a rest. The Centaurs stopped in front of the tavern with the horseshoe sign and asked everyone to go in for a drink. Luna is the owner’s wife of this small hotel called lucky stone.
Red Eagle impatiently said: “I want to see the Lord as soon as possible, to understand the details of the white devil. Hello, you big guy, call me the Lord. ”
Hearing the words “white devil”, Luna shivered and whispered, “it’s Mr. juniper’s lunch time. He told no one to disturb him. Why don’t you have a drink before you go to him!”
The Red Eagle angrily said: “how can this be true, a small Lord, the shelf should be so big, not like words!”
Xinran heart secretly smile: your frame is not smaller than others.
“I didn’t hear you wrong, did I? Did you say that juniper became the Lord? ”
Luna awkwardly nodded her head – half jokingly and half seriously: “don’t you feel happy that your fiance is flourishing?”
Yulia shook her hair angrily and said coldly, “don’t mention this name to me again. It’s disgusting!”
“Who is juniper?” asked Xinran puzzled
“It’s the man who used to go with me to Zhongzhou Don’t you remember? You sent me letters for him
Xinran remembered what happened to Yulia in the past and the man who abandoned her ruthlessly. She couldn’t help feeling jealous.
Yulia did not know how he felt, and continued to ask Luna, “no matter how you say, it’s impossible for Dusson to be the Lord. What’s wrong with father Dongqi?”
Luna said painfully: “two months ago, in the battle with the white devil, master Dongqi died unfortunately…”
“What about sister Wenji? She should be the first heir of the Lord
“On the night of master Dongqi’s death, Miss Wenji also mysteriously disappeared, and her whereabouts are still unknown As Miss Wenji’s husband, Du song is the natural heir to the Lord. ” Luna said with difficulty.
Yulia clenched her lips, and her clenched fingers lost their color. “Du song wrote to break the engagement so as to marry sister Wenji Poor Wenji, how can she marry that beast with a human face and a beast heart! ”
Luna wanted to persuade her, but did not know where to start, so she gave Xinran a look, hoping that he could comfort Yulia.
Xinran returned with a bitter smile, turned out of the hotel, and took a deep breath of the room mixed with the smell of wheat wine. What can he say from his standpoint? He didn’t even know if Yulia was still in love with the man. How much of the tears and curses just now are due to regret for friends, and how many are caused by jealousy? For the first time in his life, he lost his confidence in love. His heart was full of bitterness and jealousy. It was probably a sign of lovelorn
The moment of confrontation between love enemies soon came. The sentinel sent the news of the arrival of Yulia and his party into the Lord’s house, and a handsome and straight young Centaur came to meet “lucky stone” in person. Yulia took a look at him and immediately lowered her head, as if to cover up her feelings like a volcano. Luna saw that she was silent, so she had to introduce the origin of Xinran and red eagle, and told everyone that this young man was Lord Du song.
“Miss Luna, please allow me to correct your slight mistakes in wording.”
Du Song said with a polite smile: “I’m just the” acting “Lord. When Wenji comes safely, I don’t have to worry about my identity any more.”
He said it to everyone, but his eyes were always on Yulia.
There is no doubt that it is a pair of tender eyes. Xinran is even a little ashamed. He has never experienced the taste of being so infatuated with a woman (did God arrange today’s meeting in order to punish my unfaithfulness? ）The bold red hawk did not notice the strange atmosphere among Xinran, Yulia and tusong, and said impatiently, “no matter whether Wenji is alive or not, our first priority is always to solve the white devil! Tell me, where is he hiding? ”
Du sighed, shook his head and said, “I’m sorry, I don’t want to die for this. Your highness, centaurs, thank you for your generous help. However, it is better to stop this matter! ”
The red eagle was furious and pointed to his nose and scolded: “wanton! You are the first to ask for help. When we come all the way, you want to send people away again. Do you think I’m a slave for running errands for you
Du Song said quietly: “the order for help was given by the old lord. Now that the situation has changed, of course, it can’t be saved. What’s more, I do it for your good. The white devil is vicious and cunning, which can’t be resisted by human beings. Why should I die in vain? “
the Red Eagle kicked the table over with one foot, and said angrily:” stop! Don’t think Amazon people are as timid as you are. I will never leave the boiling spring without getting rid of the white devil! ”
Du song sighed wrongly: “it’s your freedom whether you go or not. I have no right to interfere. The guest room is ready. Please have a rest
After that, she told Luna to take the people to the guest room, leaving Yulia in particular and saying that she wanted to talk with her alone.
Yulia did not agree and gave Xinran a look of inquiry. Xinran wanted her to ignore Du song, but when he found the sincere pleading in Yulia’s eyes, he had to bear the pain in his heart and nodded.
Yulia was obviously relieved and beamed with joy. Du song patted her on the shoulder and left the pub. “Excuse me,” Yulia said with an apologetic smile
Can’t wait to go after juniper. Before going out, I didn’t even look back.
Xinran pulled a chair in the corner of the hotel and sat down, with a gloomy face and silence.
The Red Eagle came to him and asked him whether he would accept the guest room arranged by juniper or return to the camp. Gladly turned a deaf ear. The red eagle was angry for several times. The young lady was angry and said, “did you listen to me?”
Xinran looked up at her coldly, and squeezed a word out of her teeth, “roll!”
The red hawk, like a lightning strike, took two steps backward and tried to pull out his sword. Finally, he put down this tone and said, “I know why you are not happy Well, what a careful man. Is it worth it to be a maid? ”
Xinran impatiently waved her hand, let her stop shivering, “Yulia is not a maid, is my most important partner, can not give up relatives.”
Red Eagle pulled a chair and sat down opposite him. He said with a smile, “since you value her so much, you should think about her happiness. Think about it! On the one hand, you are the one who wanders around with your inexplicable master and leads a precarious life. On the other hand, you can take the throne of the Lord’s wife, get together with your relatives and friends in your hometown, and enjoy a good life. Which one would you choose
Xinran angrily stares at her, wondering why this little hot girl suddenly has a sharp tongue?
Red Hawk is very happy to be able to overcome Xinran in a battle of words, slowly said the conclusion, “if you really love Yulia, you should think more about her future, otherwise it will be selfish –”
“Hey, can you spare your time!”
Xinran became more and more furious. “Do you really think that juniper is a good man?”
Red Eagle shrugged and said with a smile, “at least better than you.”
Xinran turned her head and said to herself, “I don’t want Yulia to be happy But that doozon guy is not reliable at all! Damn it
He gave the table a heavy blow and roared, “boss, bring me the wine!”
Luna took two cups and filled Xinran and Hongying with wine.
“I understand your mood, but things are not as bad as you think.”
Luna gently comforted and pleased, “perhaps Yulia only to inquire about Miss Wenji’s whereabouts to meet with Du song alone.”
Xinran was overjoyed at the speech and drank it up in one gulp, “that’s right! Yulia, it’s a fool to ask for information
Red Eagle sneered: “you are too naive, ask for information to find Miss Luna, why ask the old lover?”
Xinran was drenched with cold water. Dejected, he said, “what you said is not unreasonable…”
Under the gloomy flash, he drank again.
The Red Eagle drank with him, and his face was flushed with wine, “so I said If you want to be more open, it’s not easy to have a woman! It’s all over the street! Think about it! When you get to Amazon, you have as many women as you want, and you care about a little Yulia? ”
“No Yulia is unique, no one can replace her, including you… ”
Xinran also some drunk, wine into the sorrow, more worried.
The Red Eagle patted him vigorously on the shoulder and said, “idiot! If you look carefully, where is Miss Ben worse than that frivolous mare? ”
Xinran didn’t answer her and drank. The two drank more and more. They were eager for Yulia to come back, but she was not seen until late at night. After drinking the last glass of wine, he got up with top heavy weight and tried to go out to find her. After two steps, he fell to the ground and could not get up again. Fat fat hazy, feel the Red Eagle kick him, and then a pair of warm arms around his neck A delicate body mixed with the fragrance of wine and women’s body is lying behind, whispering and feeding.
“My God! How do you sleep here? ”
A little cold hand touched his forehead, which made him feel refreshed and comfortable, “Luna! Why let him drink? ”
“Hey! I said Yulia, it’s not normal for a man to have a drink! ”
“But Why is your Highness the Red Eagle drunk
“The little girl tried too hard to comfort your master, but she was more drunk than he was. I said Why do you come back so early? If you stay a little later, the two of them will be cooked with uncooked rice… ”
After the words, Xinran did not hear. He fell asleep.
That night, drunk Xinran and Red Eagle sleep in Luna’s shop. Yulia returned to the camp to inform Song Xi, and then returned to the pub to take care of Xinran.
In the middle of the night, Xinran said a lot of dream talk, but I couldn’t remember clearly when I woke up. I vaguely remember Yulia’s company all night. When I woke up, her tenderness still remained on her fingertips
After daybreak, Du song brings people to the door and says he wants to talk with Xinran and Hongying. He made a straightforward request that Yulia be released from the contract of the Lord devil and let her be free.
“I can’t cancel the contract unilaterally unless Yulia agrees,” he replied
I’m sorry to say that you look down on me
When I’m tired of this kind of small crotch trick, I’ll laugh at you
A flash of anger flashed on Du song’s face, and then he negotiated with the Red Eagle, “give Yulia freedom, and I’ll take you to the white devil!”
Red Eagle picked up the teacup and smashed it on his face and said angrily, “you are an idiot! Let alone that I have no right to interfere in his decision. Even if I can do it, I won’t be threatened by you. Isn’t it ridiculous that the white devil is clearly your Centaur’s enemy, but you threaten me with it? ”
Du song shook his head and said sadly, “I have lost most of my people. I don’t want to bear more pain. The white devil will not attack boiling spring village again. I don’t need to provoke it.”
Xinran frowned slightly, thinking how he would calculate that the White Devil would not come again.
Then Yulia came into the door and said unhappily, “juniper! You’re doing something strange again — “
” Yulia, do you really want to leave me? ”
Xinran tried to act as if nothing had happened. In fact, his heart had already reached his throat. From the sea of Han, Yulia has become an integral part of his life.
Yulia felt happy uneasiness, cast a deep glance, and told Du song in a low tone, “I’m sorry, your fate is over. I’m neither a subject of boiling spring village nor your fiancee now. My identity will always be only one loyal servant of young master Su!”
Du song’s face was as gray as death, and he said painfully, “Yulia Why do you still refuse to forgive me The letter was forced by the patriarch’s daughter. If I don’t do it, there will be no place for me in boiling spring village. In fact, I always love you
Yulia shook her head sadly, tears in her eyes and said, “everything is over. I don’t hate you any more. I hope you can forget me too. Goodbye!”
Turn to run to Xinran, hide in his arms silently tears.
The stone in Xinran’s heart fell to the ground, and Yulia did not have her old love revived. However, this does not mean 100% security. Everyone can see that not only does Du song have a deep love for Yulia, but Yulia also has some old feelings for him. Now Xinran only hopes to leave the boiling spring village as soon as possible, and pay respects to Du song forever.
However, contrary to her wishes, Yulia made a request which made him very uneasy, but could not refuse.
“Master, I hope to stay more days in boiling spring village. After all, this is the place where I was born, and there are many things worth remembering!”
Xinran stares at her eyes, full of unwillingness to write on her face. But Du song showed a surprise smile.
Xinran tried to persuade her to give up such a dangerous plan. At that moment, Yulia’s eyes passed a few meaningful eyes, and gave up his thoughts.
Based on Yulia’s concession, Du song reluctantly agreed to take Xinran and his party to the White Devil’s lair, the crypt of the underground bell.
This is a natural stalactite cave located in the West swamp of boiling Spring Township. The groundwater flowing out of the hole brings warm fog, and the water temperature is very high, so it is named boiling spring. Du Song said that the White Devil first appeared here. The old lord once led the rescue of ten Centaur warriors into the cave for investigation. He was attacked by the White Devil and almost all his troops were destroyed. Juniper was one of the few survivors at that time. However, when the Red Eagle asked about the characteristics of the white devil, he claimed that he did not know at all. At the cave entrance, Du song stopped and said, “I wish you all a safe return.”
“You won’t come with us?” Red Eagle asked in surprise.
“Sorry, I have to be responsible for the people. They have lost one leader and can’t lose another.”
The red eagle glared at him fiercely and strode into the cave.
Xinran was about to chase in, but Du song suddenly stopped him and said with a smile of ulterior motives: “Mr. Su, thank you for taking care of Yulia all the time. In return, I hope you can come back alive to attend the wedding of Yulia and me.”
“Please don’t mention it. I’ll give Yulia a a pair of scissors as a gift.”
“Ha ha ha ha ha, to cut off your dishonest cock.”
“You Damn the foreigner! I won’t forgive you! ”
Du song roared with anger.
Xinran ignored him and turned into the cave.
The view in the cave is very poor. The wall of the cave eroded by water for many years is smooth and cold. Xinran walks in front of him. His inborn “dark vision” ability helps him to see the road under his feet. Unable to see in the dark, the red hawk summoned the immortal bird “Garo” to illuminate with the light from the bird’s feathers.
There are many forked roads in the cave. Xinran sends out a bat to explore the way at every fork in the road, avoiding dangerous situations and dead ends. Red eagle was surprised to see him commanding these abominable vampire servants, and felt that the exotic young man was mysterious.
After walking for half an hour, they could not see the end of the cave. There was still a labyrinth of underground passageways in front of them. Xinran offered to sit down and have a rest. The Red Eagle did not refuse. At this time, clear footsteps came from behind.
The Red Eagle leaped up with his sword and lurked on the side of the cave like a swift bobcat.
“Don’t worry, it’s the footstep of Centaur,” he said with a smile
Red Eagle’s face turned red. He took up his sword and said with a smile: “maybe it was Du song’s conscience that he came back to find us.”
Unexpectedly, it was Juan and Luna who came into the cave.
The Red Eagle asked suspiciously: “is Du song to send you to come?”
Luna shook her head and said, “we’re sneaking in. Lord doesn’t know.”
She picked up the rabbit and showed it to the Red Eagle. “This is Miss Wenji’s servant demon. I found it by the river this morning. According to the mineral powder on the rabbit’s hair, it is not difficult to conclude that Miss Wenji is in the Zhongru cave.”
The servant devil is still alive, indicating that the master is still alive.
“If you want to save Miss Wenji, you must avoid the surveillance of the white devil. We have the same goal. It’s better to go together, or have a care.”
Happy to take the initiative to invite the Juan couple to join the team.
Of course, the couple will not refuse. They choose to come in to save people now, in order to get the help of Xinran and Red Eagle.
