“Master!” Bai Ruan’s face sank, and he raised his eyes to meet Yun Zhen’s short gaze, then raised his face again and muttered in a low voice, “Don’t talk nonsense.”
“This teacher hasn’t finished talking,” Yun Qing retracted the hand covering Bai Ruan’s lower abdomen, and said with regret, “Although there is a lucky star in the children’s palace, bad luck has broken through the three squares. Let’s not talk about you being a male rabbit, even for a female rabbit, this baby is guaranteed to be miscarried.”
Bai Ruan replied angrily, “Even if you didn’t calculate, there’s still no way for me to give birth. I don’t have that kind of ability…” This topic was too shameful. Before waiting for Yun Qing to answer, Bai Ruan continued in a hurry, “By the way, Master, last time you said there is a way for my student to grow his teeth back. What kind of spell is that?”
“You have already gotten fake-pregnant and keep calling him ‘student’, yet you don’t want to give his a status.” Yun Qing wrinkled his nose and curled his mouth, his chin straightened, looking with contempt at the scumbag. Looking at Bai Ruan with disgust in his eyes, he said, “Heh—scumbag Bouncy.”
Bai Ruan rose up to retort back, “Don’t you also call my uncle ‘Senior Brother’ ?”
Yun Zhen coldly replied, “Good point.”
Yun Qing blinked slowly. “Using me and your Uncle as reference. Aren’t you just admitting it?”
Bai Ruan was stunned as though struck by lightning.
After a moment of silence, Bai Ruan stammered, “It’s not…that, that…master, the growing teeth spell, is it long?”
Yun Qing caused enough trouble and had a frivolous look. “This spell was invented by our ancestor master. It was originally used to restore and rejuvenate. However, it hasn’t been achieved till today. It is a bad technique that is not easy to use, so I haven’t taught it to you.”
Bai Ruan obediently waited for his Master to continue.
Yun Qing continued, “This disabled technique fails because although it can restore a person’s state to decades ago, it will go back quickly after recovery.For example, a fifty-year-old man used this spell so hard to recover to eighteen years old. As a result, he might return back to fifty years old in a month. It’s not worth it at all. During this period, the serious illness that would have been born can not be avoided. Not only can it not be avoided, but it also progresses quickly. So under normal circumstances this technique is useless.”
Bai Ruan penetrated at one point, and his eyes gleamed slightly. “But if an eighteen-year-old is restored to an infant, during this period of rapid growth, will he change his deciduous teeth?”
“Your cleverness is like mine.” Yun Qing nudged Yun Zhen with his elbow, with a proud look all over his face. “Your apprentices are more stupid than the previous ones.”
Yun Zhen gently replied, “Indeed.”
Bai Ruan’s thoughts strayed and he couldn’t help but imagine the scene where Lang Jing Feng, who was usually arrogant and domineering, turned back to a little milk wolf.
The growth rate of original wolf demons was different from that of the ordinary wolves, but was synchronized with the human form. A three-year-old wolf was an adult, but the original shape of the three-year-old wolf demon was hundred percent a young wolf.
It must be a small furball, probably not too much energy. Baby teeth wouldn’t hurt… Bai Ruan thought, his eyes glanced around twice, the corners of his lips curled up unkindly and his expression looked unfriendly.
Yun Qing squinted at him. “Bouncy, your expression…”
Bai Ruan, “En?”
Yun Qing, “You have a good relationship with your little friend, and you have a husband and wife relationship. However, at first glance, it looks very wicked.”
“How can there be? There isn’t.” Bai Ruan hurriedly put on an expression of virtue.
After learning from Yun Qing the details of the spell, Bai Ruan realised two problems.
One was that after the restoration spell, the duration of a day for the victim was about a normal year. In terms of conversion, it’d take half a month for Lang Jing Feng to grow from a child to an adult. So if he didn’t want to expose this, he had to continuously stay at home for half a month without seeing any acquaintances; secondly, many of the rare materials used for the spell were originally stored in a small warehouse in the Temple. But the small warehouse had been destroyed during the battle and turned into a pile of ruins, and he didn’t know how much of the inventory inside could be saved. If the loss was huge, it would take some time to purchase the materials once again. After all, divine treasures were not like carrots and cabbages where one could buy them anywhere, anytime. It all depended on luck.
On the whole, the summer vacation after the end of the second year of high school was the most suitable for casting spells. According to his previous experience, Bai Ruan estimated that the summer vacation between the second and third year of high school would last 20 days, and the timing was highly suitable. If he didn’t pay close attention to this period, he would have to wait until the college entrance examination was finished.
Bai Ruan originally planned to go back to discuss with Lang Jing Feng after he was done today, but this matter had been on his heart for too long, and every time he thought about it, he felt guilty. So he didn’t hold back, despite being embarrassed last night and Lang JingFeng being in self-study class now. He edited a long WeChat message to clarify the matter and sent it to him to ask his opinion.
Two minutes later, Lang Jing Feng replied: “Okay. During summer vacation is fine.”
The tone was not as cheerful as Bai Ruan imagined. Perhaps because he didn’t care too much.
Bai Ruan: “Great! I’ll tell my master!”
Lang Jing Feng: “But I still have a problem. Can Teacher Bai help solve it?”
Bai Ruan: “What? Say it.”
Lang Jing Feng knew that his teeth could grow back and he was not afraid of Bai Ruan feeling guilty. He said in a miserable manner: “My parents don’t know about my teeth grinding. If they knew, the lightest sentence would be to beat me into the hospital. My mother would probably confiscate my wallet and mobile phone, strip my clothes, and throw me into the mountains and old forests to let me go hunting in my original form.”
Bai Ruan agreed and thought that would happen. The older generation of wolves must deeply value wolf fangs. Knowing that the little wolf cub had caused such trouble, they wouldn’t know what kind of punishment was suitable.
Lang Jing Feng: “Can I live in your house for half a month? I’ll find an excuse to convince my parents.”
Bai Ruan originally had the crooked idea of taking the opportunity to retaliate against the little milk wolf. In addition to being distressed about Lang Jing Feng being punished, he also felt that it was best to solve the matter without alarming his family, so he agreed in one fell swoop: “Okay.”
Lang Jing Feng didn’t expect that Bai Ruan would promise so quickly, and replied: “Am I staying at your house today? You ignored me last night. I know that I was wrong. If I stay another day, can you pay attention to me, wifey?”
Bai Ruan’s hands shook and he almost smashed the phone.
Lang Jing Feng quickly sent the next sentence: “I’m sorry, Teacher. I made a mistake.”
Bai Ruan: “…”
Bai Ruan’s words were like gold: “No way.”
Lang Jing Feng: “Has the Heart Monster been suppressed?”
Bai Ruan, “En.”
Lang Jing Feng: “What if it’s clone is still outside?”
Bai Ruan: “Impossible, the seal will not work if it is incomplete.”
Lang Jing Feng turned around: “Are you at the Temple?”
Bai Ruan: “Well, I have a lot of work here, let’s not talk anymore. Mobile phones are not allowed during self-study class. If you continue to reply, I will confiscate your phone when I get back. [Smile]”
Lang Jing Feng obediently didn’t reply.
Next, Bai Ruan and his fellow apprentices cleaned up the remnants of the Temple. The other Master uncles were not idle, each using a technique to move large pieces of building debris that couldn’t be moved by humans.
Only Yun Qing, who had somehow got a recliner from his Qiankun bag1Also known as “Ruyi Qiankun Bag” and “Golden Bag”, specially used for storage. With incredible power, there is a strange space inside, and the space seems to be able to contain the heaven and the earth inside. There are other things in the bag, which is called “the sky in the bag”., put on his sunglasses, laid on it while eating melon seeds and drinking Coke. He was so comfortable, it was as if he was owed a beating. However, for the sake of big brother Yun Zhen doing two jobs alone, none of these senior brothers of the Yun generation said anything.
In summer, the sun set late, and the sky was still bright at six o’clock. The ruins of the small warehouse had been cleared. Bai Ruan squatted in a pile of gravel and checked various medicinal materials, magical instruments, and red stones. He sorted them out and placed the goods in a nearby open space. Suddenly, the voice of a young disciple was heard from outside the Taoist Temple. Bai Ruan pricked his ears, and heard Lang Jing Feng’s voice lazily coming across the courtyard wall, “I’m looking for Bai Ruan.”
“You wait there, I’ll ask.” The little apprentice ran in anxiously, “Don’t come in.”
Luo Xia Temple had not been open to pilgrims in recent years, and almost no one came except the disciples. After this incident, some people had been on duty outside the gates to prevent people from seeing things they shouldn’t see. So this disciple guarding would inevitably get nervous when he saw someone coming.
“Come in, come in. We are family.” Yun Qing didn’t even turn his head, he waved his hand at the little apprentice who rushed over from a distance, and greeted Bai Ruan again, “Bouncy, the child’s dad is here.”
“Master!” Bai Ruan’s mood was dismal. He wiped his sweat and ran towards the door.
He was still wearing his school shirt and trousers. The tie was rolled up and tucked into his chest pocket, and his sleeves were folded over his elbows, revealing his thin forearms and delicate wrist bones. The white shirt and face were covered with mud prints, but he still looked very handsome.
“Child’s dad?” Lang Jing Feng slung his schoolbag into the half-broken door. His handsome face was originally smiling, but sank as soon as he saw Bai Ruan, “Fuck… Teacher Bai?”
Bai Ruan automatically ignored the first question, and his expression was grim. “What’s the matter with you? You skipped the night self-study period?”
Lang Jing Feng lifted his chin, scanned the ruined Taoist temple, and understood. He pulled Bai Ruan, who was standing one meter away, into his arms, and wiped the dirty face with his fingers and the back of his hand twice. With a bossy face, he said contentedly, “You’re the only one working?”
“Everyone is doing it.” Bai Ruan turned his face uncomfortably, “What’s the matter? your night self-study…”
“Don’t move.” Lang Jing Feng took out a small pack of wet wipes and wiped off the dirt on Bai Ruan’s face.
“Okay, don’t wipe anymore, it will get dirty later on.” The distance between the two were so close that Bai Ruan became embarrassed. He ignored Lang Jing Feng last night, and this morning he sneaked away before the other woke up. This was the first close encounter after the awkward situation.
Lang Jing Feng wiped it off with a wet towel, then took out a facial tissue, wiped off the water and fine sweat on Bai Ruan’s face as if he were playing with an expensive doll, and ordered, “I skipped the self-study period to work for you. You go and rest.”
“You…” Bai Ruan glared at him. “It’s so natural for you to say that you skipped the self-study period at night? Can you still finish your homework today? I had arranged a composition…”
“Okay, Teacher Bai, when was I not the first to do my Chinese homework? I finished it during self-study at noon.” Lang Jing Feng scratched the tip of Bai Ruan’s nose with his index finger knuckles. “I took a taxi and finished one physics paper on the way.” After speaking, he took out a bottle of white peach black tea from his school bag and handed it to Bai Ruan’s hand. “I remember you love to drink this.”
At this time, Yun Qing’s voice came out undeadly, “Bouncy, he is happy to do it so let him.”
Bai Ruan followed his reputation, and Yun Qing was standing on the edge of the recliner and beckoning him. “Come and rest for a while, my granddaughter has a hard life. It’s a life that can’t be born. Let her be comfortable in her father’s stomach…”
“Master! Y-You, what nonsense are you spouting!?” Bai Ruan looked terrified, wishing to rush over to pinch Yun Qing’s broken mouth shut!
Lang Jing Feng raised his eyebrows. “Granddaughter?”
The author has something to say:
Father-in-law and son-in-law had a drink under the moon——
Yun Qing (toasting): My granddaughter has a hard life. She is destined to not be born.
Lang Jing Crazy (crashing the cup): Let’s not talk about sad things. Master, have a drink.
Yun Qing (shoulder pat): You’ll have a child.
Lang Jing Crazy (pouring wine): Bouncy and I will work harder.
The furious male rabbit, Bai Ruan Ruan kicked the table over with his hind legs.
