After the arrangements were complete, the kadsura coccinea forest became quieter.
The only people left were Ren Baqian, the empress, and 300 winged cavalry warriors.
Ren Baqian still allowed the winged cavalry to chop some timber to build houses, and he wasn’t intending to leave until he finished eating the kadsura coccineas.
He would have a kadsura coccinea once every day and night and would spend the rest of the time training or accompanying the empress.
This area was considered pretty scenic and exuberant. It was quite relaxing for them to move here after staying in the valley of the Earth Yin Spring for three months.
At night, Ren Baqian and the empress held hands as they sat on a rooftop and gazed at the stars above.
He enjoyed holding her hand as it was very soft and tender.
Her body also gave off a smell that he felt was very fragrant.
With beasts howling the distance, they were surrounded by the wilderness. They felt better laying here and gazing at the stars than in the palace.
“Your Majesty, after I’m done with eating all the fruit, we should probably head back and get married, right?” Ren Baqian asked.
“Yeah!” The empress hummed softly.
She originally intended to simply sweep her late mother’s tomb and accompany Ren Baqian to cultivate at the Earth Yin Spring. She didn’t expect so many things to happen that she had to delay her wedding.
The next thing to do was to find those herdsmen, a task which she assigned to Xi Wanya and her brother.
The herdsmen were very secretive and hard to locate, but they weren’t very strong. The only thing worrying about them was whether they still had any hidden trump cards. For instance, that Liu Sheng whom they had met earlier.
In any case, both she and Ren Baqian ought to head back already. Even though she was able to communicate with others through radio nowadays, she couldn’t possibly be absent at the imperial court all the time.
“Do I have to give you a betrothal gift then?” Ren Baqian turned around and saw the empress’s glowing face.
“I don’t need anything,” the empress replied casually, but she felt slightly angry. Did he have to ask about such matters? As an empress, what could she possibly lack? She would definitely accept anything that he was willing to give.
Even if it was just a stalk of that beautiful little white flower.
“I know that Your Majesty doesn’t lack anything! However, I’m just wondering whether you should give me a betrothal gift instead?” Ren Baqian acted surprised.
The empress turned to him and glared.
She was shocked by his shamelessness.
“Aren’t you marrying me? This is my first time getting married…” Before Ren Baqian could even finish his words, she angrily kicked him off the roof.
He lay on the ground and burst out laughing.
The empress leaped off the roof and landed on his stomach, almost stomping him into the ground. She then walked back to her room without even looking back.
Ren Baqian was left sprawled on the ground and groaning.
Even though his defense had gotten stronger, her feet immediately shattered all the essence qi that covered his skin…
Some time later, he finally stood up and rubbed his stomach after seeing that the empress had already shut the door.
Ren Baqian pushed the door and realized that she had latched it from the inside.
“Your Majesty… Let me in…” He had a hidden bitterness on his face.
This wooden house was a suite. The empress stayed in the bedroom while Ren Baqian stayed in the living area.
Now that she had latched the door, he had no means of getting in! Smashing the door was the only thing he could do, but he reckoned that he would end up worse if he did that!
At present, it was early 2026 and 9 PM in the evening.
When Ren Baqian returned to Earth, the first thing he did was check out the room that was filled with snacks, and he actually didn’t see Lin Qiaole there.
Normally, she would be entranced in that room every day.
It was rare not to see her there today.
He left her on Earth previously because he was afraid that the herdsman would stir up trouble.
Lin Qiaole was a Spirit Wheel expert and unrivalled on Earth. If anything were to happen, even a nuclear warhead couldn’t stop her.
It was impossible for an ordinary person to even follow her movements.
Thankfully, she stayed well-behaved as expected. All she did was eat and sleep, turning that snack-filled room into her nest.
Ren Baqian changed his clothes and went downstairs, only to see that the winged cavalry warriors were watching a romance film on television.
They were sighing, sniffing, and just short of crying on each other’s shoulders.
“They have fallen from grace!” Ren Baqian lamented.
He estimated that these winged cavalry had already been on Earth for about five years, and they had indeed changed a lot.
They began to binge-watch, play mobile games, send text messages…
Ren Baqian was even considering whether he should allow them to get married and have children on Earth.
However, given their body size, it wouldn’t be easy for them to find suitable partners.
For instance, Tong Zhenye and his group of people only visited Lan City’s brothel to have fun and wouldn’t normally spend the night with the ladies there.
The reason was that they would get into big trouble for doing that.
However, it was said that there were a few new Earth Wheel level ladies at Qinghua Courtyard, which was one of the four big brothels in Lan City. Zi Donglai kept them when he went to the Yun Nation to exterminate the sects. Because of this, Qinghua Courtyard had gained quite a fair bit of reputation lately. Tong Zhenye and Qin Chuan had also faced off at Qinghua Courtyard a number of times.
“Where’s Librarian Lin?” Looking at the winged cavalry warriors’ behavior, he felt like kicking them out of the house.
“Lady boss, you can check if she’s up on the roof! She made a new friend recently!” One of them looked at him with tearful eyes.
“The roof? Lin Qiaole made a friend?” Just as Ren Baqian started feeling puzzled, he heard a noise from the roof.
Without speaking another word, he walked out the door and hopped up on the roof. He saw Lin Qiaole squatting there in a singlet and shorts, howling into the distance.
“Woo! Woo!” Her friend howled back in response.
After hearing this, Ren Baqian wondered whose husky it was…
He was immediately shocked to see this!
So, this was Lin Qiaole’s new friend? She made friends with a husky? The others fell from grace after coming to Earth and so have you!
“Look, he’s asking me to go play!” Lin Qiaole lifted her hair and said to Ren Baqian. On her small and delicate face, her eyes were gleaming with joy.
He was speechless and didn’t know how he should react. He had been through a lot of ordeals, but this… He was at a loss.
“I’ll get going then!” Before he could even respond, Lin Qiaole vanished into the night sky.
How could Ren Baqian possibly allow her to roam around by herself? He leaped down from the roof and headed toward where the howling was coming from.
There weren’t that many houses in this area and that howling sound came from around 200 meters away, so it shouldn’t be hard to locate.
There was only one villa in between them.
Currently, the few chefs that Ren Baqian had hired lived there.
After all, the winged cavalry warriors had huge appetites that required quite a number of chefs. There were also large amounts of fruits, vegetables, and meat that were delivered to them every day.
Outside the villa and where the howling was coming from, Ren Baqian heard a commotion from within that house. It seemed like Lin Qiaole had alarmed the people inside.
After he leaped on top of the wall, he saw two men in suits staring at her cautiously while breaking into cold sweats. These men didn’t know when this girl had appeared in their house, and they acted as if they had seen a ghost.
