Chapter 119: Race Will Not Affect Our Friendship
“You mean, you have news to tell me, right? Then hurry up, my friend, I can’t wait any longer!”
Stone pretended to be very experienced as it extended one of its fingers and shook it.
It felt that this action could make it seem like a mature tree spirit that was qualified to leave the village.
However, Mike’s expression did not look good.
The more Stone trusted him, the guiltier he felt.
When he was in the Tree Spirit Village, the question in the test had been very obvious.
It was practically referring to their current situation!
However, Stone was oblivious to it all.
Because it had already regarded Mike and the princess as friends and family.
Mike closed his eyes and took a deep breath.
The little tree spirit face also became frozen.
It seemed to have realized that its new friend was about to share some bad news.
When Mike opened his eyes and said that sentence, Stone was completely dumbfounded.
“Stone, listen… actually, she and I are not tree spirits, we are humans.”
Hearing this, the little tree spirit was completely dumbfounded.
It took more than ten seconds before it came back to its senses.
Stone widened its eyes and looked at Mike before it that looked nothing like it. Then, Stone opened its mouth wide and said in surprise,
“You mean, you are actually not a tree spirit, but a human?!”
“Yes, that’s what I meant.” Mike nodded.
[You’ve hurt Stone, your friendliness has decreased to friendliness.]
Stone continued to say,
“You mean, you… lied to me before?!”
“Yes… that’s right.” Mike tried hard to keep himself calm.
[You’ve hurt Stone, your friendliness has decreased to peace ]
The little tree spirit, Stone, reached out its hands to cover its head and shook its head repeatedly.
Stone tried its best to find evidence to back Mike up.
“No, no, no, you must be joking, my friend. Don’t you have the Tree Spirit Village pass? I’ve seen it before. It can’t be fake.”
The princess lowered her head when she heard this.
Mike sighed and bent down to support the little tree spirit, Stone’s, shoulder. “Buddy, to tell you the truth, I picked it up outside.”
[You’ve hurt the Stone. Your friendliness has decreased to indifference.]
Upon hearing this, the little tree spirit came to a realization.
“So, you’re not a tree spirit at all. You’re a human. Our friendship is all fake…”
It seemed to be on the verge of collapsing.
However, Mike interrupted it.
“No, you’re wrong about one thing.”
The little tree spirit, Stone, came back to its senses and looked at Mike in confusion.
Mike also looked at the little tree spirit and said word by word,
“Our friendship is real, my friend.”
[You have touched Stone. Your friendliness has increased to fanatical faith.]
The moment he received this message, Mike was slightly stunned.
The friendship that was quickly built up before quickly crumbled after Mike told the truth.
Though now, it had directly risen to the highest level.
Mike was sure that this was not because of his skills.
This was a real increase in friendliness.
The little tree spirit’s pupils clearly dilated a little.
Stone was very shocked and very surprised.
“You mean, we’re still friends?”
“Yes.” Mike smiled and nodded.
“Even if you’re not a tree spirit, you’re still willing to be friends with me?”
Seeing Mike’s reaction, Stone’s mouth opened wide, revealing a happy smile again.
“That’s right, that’s right, we’re friends, we’re good friends!” it danced excitedly.
It seemed as if the lies and deception from before did not affect their friendship at all.
The differences between their races did not affect their friendship.
They were friends.
Best friends for life.
Mike let go of the little tree spirit because he could see that the little guy wanted to dance.
Sure enough, the moment Mike let go, Stone immediately jumped up and started humming a happy melody.
“Friends ~ Friends ~ We are good friends ~”
Looking at the little tree spirit, Mike and the princess smiled and looked at each other.
Obviously, Stone did not remember the questions in the test.
However, that was not important. What was important was that this was an outcome that everyone desired.
“So, are you going back to Tree Spirit Village? Or are you coming with me?” Mike asked.
“Of course, Stone will stay with friends.”
The little tree spirit, Stone, revealed a mocking smile and reached out his elbow to bump Mike’s calf.
Yes, this was his maximum height.
“Okay, let’s send the princess home.” Mike carried the little tree spirit on his shoulder.
The little tree spirit also raised its hands high and shouted excitedly,
“Yes, yes, let’s send her home!”
Elwyn Forest was not far from the City of Light.
In order to let the princess follow his pace, Mike did not use his Swift Steps skill.
However, their speed was not slow.
Very soon, the two people and the tree had already reached the City of Light.
Of course, the players along the way all cast curious gazes at this team with strange members.
They had never seen players and tree spirits get along peacefully.
Moreover, two female players even took the initiative to approach them.
“Oh my god, is that a baby tree spirit? It’s so cute!”
“I didn’t expect the baby tree spirit to be so cute. I thought tree spirits were very scary creatures.”
The little tree spirit, Stone, stuck out its chest happily and put its hands on its waist.
“Yes, yes, I’m very cute.”
Such a reaction made the two female players happy again. Some of them even wanted to hold Stone in their arms and cuddle it.
However, the princess, who had been away from home for so long, could not wait to go home.
After she tactfully expressed that she and God Slayer still had things to do, the players could only end the conversation with some regret.
After all, no player wanted to reduce the princess’s friendliness because of such a small matter.
It was not worth it.
Soon, they smoothly arrived at the palace.
When the king saw the princess, two lines of hot tears immediately flowed out from the wrinkled corners of his old eyes.
“My daughter, is it really you? Oh my god, great, you’re finally back!”
He walked over excitedly and held the princess’s hands. He sized up the princess and said,
“Oh my god, what have you been through during this period of time? Seeing your thin body, it’s as if my heart has been pierced ten thousand times by a sword.”
The princess was also full of tears. She turned her head to look at Mike and sobbed.
“Father, it’s all thanks to the respected God Slayer that I can come back safely. If it weren’t for him, I’m afraid that I will be dead soon.”
After the princess’s reminder, the king finally reacted.
He looked at Mike and said with a serious face,
“God Slayer, I, Onivis Harvey, on behalf of the royal family, solemnly express my gratitude to you.
“You found my daughter, Onivis Alice. I will definitely reward you handsomely!”
