He lifted up the tent cover to Feng Buping’s tent and looked inside, the men in there were sound asleep.
“Uncle Feng, the sun is shining on your butt already!” giggled Qiu Luo as he patted on Feng Buping’s shoulder. Seeing that Feng Buping didn’t stir at all, he patted him a few more times harder, but still no response.
“Oh, yeah?” Qiu Luo pinched Feng Buping’s nose and then covered up his mouth.
Feng Buping’s face immediately flickered between red and white and suddenly his eyes opened up. He sat up and gasped for air.
“Xiao Luo, how come you are here? Eh, why is your neck swollen?”
“I am fine, I am fine. I fell this morning….” Laughed Qui Luo, embarrassed, “Uncle, the sun is almost going down already, I thought you have grounds to cover?”
“WHAT?!” Feng Buping was shocked, he had always woken up before the sun was up, why was he in such a deep sleep today?
He rocked his companions by his side, sure enough it was quite difficult to wake them.
“Shit, a sleep spell was casted on us!” said Feng Buping with a solemn look, “Only high level mystical beasts were capable of doing that!”
Qiu Luo had a pretty good idea, that was the deed of that phoenix!
“Lucky that didn’t work on you, else we’d all be dead. We can’t stay here any longer, we need to pack up and leave!” Feng Buping quickly splattered water on his companions and woke them all up, then everybody hurried to pack up and headed on their way.
Qiu Luo tailed the rest of the group. Every step he took irritated his injuries and it so painful he had tears streaming down his face, “That damn pheonix. I am okay with her taking advantage of me, but did she have to be so violent? Sigh, wouldn’t it be nice if there’s someone here with healing power?”
A gentle-looking green light suddenly appeared on his body. Basking in the green light, the bruises on his body lessened progressively and finally disappeared all together!
“What just happened?” asked Qiu Luo, completely startled. Did that green light appeared when he thought about it? He tried again to think about healing power. Sure enough, the green light appeared again!
Perhaps it was because his injuries were already all gone, the green light disappeared quickly.
“Hmm, I wonder if I can use this on others?” wondered Qiu Luo and decided to find out right away. He picked a small bug from a leave on a tree on the side of the road and put it in the middle of his palm. Then with a small twig he poked the bug on its round tummy. The bug immediately started rolling around in his palm and green fluid leaked out from the puncture wound on its stomach.
Qui Luo thought about it and a the little bug was immediately surrounded by a rich green color. The bug stopped struggling right away and the would on it’s stomach was closing up at a visible speed.
“I did it!” Qiu Luo was emotional. He had no idea whether the green light has to do with the Xuanyuan cleaver or Silver Wind, but he knew that he had just gained another awesome life-saving skill.
“I wonder if it can cure someone with their heads cut off….” Thought Qiu Luo for a brief second…
Suddenly there were chaos among the caravan in front of him. Qiu Luo looked up and everybody stopped on their way and one by one they kneeled down and bowed to the sky, and the sun in the sky was blocked by some unknown object.
A enormously large silver phoenix flew above Mount Chongxi elegantly. The feathers on its magnificent tail sparkled gorgeously under the sun….
