Behind, Touba Yu’er was also supporting another terrifying human shaped ball…
Further back, was a tall adult male; in his hand was a bottle that he was using to collect Honey Fruit Bee’s honey.
The bottle was slightly more than half filled.
That man looks rather familiar…
“It’s you?” Bai Li Zi Xi’s voice was cold and arrogant.
“Lady Huan! It is great that you are fine!” Mu Rong Xin Nuo happily said.
Tuoba Xiang’er had learned her lesson, apart from glancing at Huan Qing Yan, she did not participate in the ‘reunion’ conversation.
She shifted her gaze to the beehives hanging on stone walls behind, “Uncle Yan, there are many beehives here. It looks like elder sister can be saved.”
The man lightly acknowledged her words, he glanced at Huan Qing Yan before heading towards the hives to collect honey.
Huan Qing Yan was startled, Uncle Yan?
No wonder he looked familiar, this uncle likely transformed from the Little Shota?
How long has it been only, that Little Shota had suddenly turned into an uncle? What secret technique was that? How mysterious.
Bai Li Zi Xi saw Huan Qing Yan had not replied to her; it was obvious that she was being ignored, her expression turned even colder and arrogant.
“I heard that the reason Shang Qiu Yan and Tuoba Yu’er had turned into this state, was all because you stopped them from running away, causing them to be surrounded by the bee swarm?”
Mu Rong Xin Nuo softly reminded, “Lady Huan, the Saintess is talking to you.”
Huan Qing Yan looked at the two balls, “What? I thought those two balls are some sort of rare humanoid race? They are Lady Shang Qiu and Lady Tuoba? Oh heavens, it caused me a fright!”
When the two balls heard her, their body trembled and their breathing turned heavy. They painfully mumbled, incoherently, not able to speak complete sentences.
“You are so sinister, harming fellow human comrades, do you admit your crimes?” Bai Li Zi Xi coldly looked at her while blocking the entrance of the cave room.
That only entrance, as well as the exit.
Huan Qing Yan calmly took out a Recording Stone and activate it, before she slowly spoke, “Lord Saintess, are you representing the Holy Court? Does the Holy Court charge a person of crimes without checking the truth?”
Bai Li Zi Xi’s face froze, Huan Qing Yan was truly shameless; to think that she would use a Recording Stone!
If the Recording Stone spreads to the public, her public image as the Saintess would be badly affected.
Not only was Bai Li Zi Xi caught off guard, but even Mu Rong Xin Nuo and group was also surprised.
The expression of the two balls was also showing a hopeless feeling if their current image was spread, how could they continue living from now on!
Bai Li Zi Xi controlled herself, “Then you have a chance to explain yourself, Lady Shang Qiu and Lady Tuoba are both badly poisoned by the Killer Bee’s venom. If there is not enough honey to apply and neutralize the poison, they will not survive today.”
Huan Qing Yan smiled, “This is the situation, I am the first to discover a patch of Honey Fruit Trees… after some harvesting, these two came to challenge and attacked me together. Mu Rong Xin Nuo was also at the scene, she can be the witness. After that, the bee swarm attacked and they were unable to escape in time, yet I am to blame?”
With the Recording Stone present, everyone was somewhat apprehensive.
Bai Li Zi Xi looked at Mu Rong Xin Nuo to seek confirmation, “Is that true?”
Mu Rong Xin Nuo gently nodded, “It is like this Saintess, Shang Qiu Yan and Tuoba Yu’er issued the challenge first, I was unable to convince them to stop… it is all because I am useless, it would have been alright if I can convince them to stop! However, Lady Huan, you had used the Ice Shatter Bead on yourself. If you have done the same for Shang Qiu Yan and Tuoba Yu’er, these girls would not have suffered and turned into this state…”
