395 What Happened Back Then (2)

That person wasn’t facing him. Chu Feng could only see his side profile, but he felt that it was a little familiar.

Of course, this was not the main point. The main point was that the fish clearly did not listen to him.

The person put aside the cleaned fish and casually grabbed the fish food they had left there and scattered it into the pool. The stupid fish rushed over.

The person quickly scooped it up and a fish appeared in her hand. With a raise of her hand and a slash, the fish’s stomach was cut open. Her entire movement was smooth without any hesitation.

Chu Feng’s eyes widened.

The two people in the pavilion were still talking, unaware that the fish in the pond were suffering from a disaster.

“There’s no time.” The abbot sighed again. “She kept saying that there was no time. I asked her what she meant, but she was unwilling to say.”

“Our benefactor forcefully drank a bowl of growth medicine and gave birth a month earlier than expected.”

“I remember that it was the 13th of September. My benefactor didn’t let me hire a midwife.”

“Xuanyuan Ce, you’ll regret it. You’ll definitely regret it!”

The abbot was still recounting what had happened back then when words that had tortured him for seventeen years suddenly sounded in Xuanyuan Ce’s mind.

What did he say back then?

“Ji Luo, today is my big day. Don’t pester me endlessly.”

“I’ve already agreed with the Princess Consort that after she returns in three days, I’ll welcome you as a concubine. At that time, the two of you will…”

A slap sounded loudly.

The response was a loud slap and the person’s back view as she left without hesitation.

From then on, that person seemed to have disappeared from the face of the earth.

She appeared in the same way. He did not know where she came from, let alone where she went.

All she left him was that slap and that determined back view.

As the abbot recounted the dangers of Ji Luo’s childbirth, Xuanyuan Ce felt his heart being grabbed by a large hand, so tightly that he almost couldn’t breathe.

A metallic taste rose in her throat.

The abbot’s gaze drifted away, but he had been paying attention to the change in his expression. Seeing him like this, a glint that should not have appeared on his face flashed across his eyes.

He nodded in satisfaction and changed the topic. “Fortunately, nothing went wrong. Our benefactor gave birth to a baby girl. That baby girl also has the same mark between her eyebrows as our benefactor.”

He was a monk. How could he know so well how his benefactor gave birth?

However, this fellow had betrayed his benefactor first. Just now, he had threatened him with the fish in the pond.

If he didn’t vent his anger, he wouldn’t be the abbot of the temple for much longer.

Therefore, he summarized the dangers that the women he had heard of might encounter in childbirth.

Something about discovering that the fetus was in an improper position during delivery, giving birth for a day and a night, but the fetus’s feet came out first. It was not easy for her to give birth, but she suffered a major hemorrhage.

In short, the effect was better than he had imagined.

The abbot chanted a Buddhist proclamation in his heart. “Please don’t blame my benefactor and Buddha.”

Xuanyuan Ce’s forehead was covered in sweat, and his face was pale, as if he had just given birth.

He swallowed the taste of blood and clenched his fists. “What about the child? Where did she go?”

“It’s gone.” At the mention of this, the abbot looked worried. “After the child was born, my benefactor didn’t rest for a day. He brought the child out early and returned late all day.”

After about a month, she returned alone.”

“I noticed that the mark between my benefactor’s eyebrows was gone. She looked like she had been severely injured, so I asked her what had happened.”

“My benefactor only said that the child was missing before returning to the courtyard. However, I didn’t expect her to burn down her courtyard that night, and I never saw her again after that.”

Later on, a group of people found the temple. Only then did he know that his benefactor had returned that night to erase any traces of her life there.

No wonder she didn’t let him find a doctor. No wonder she had lived in the Hidden Spirit Temple for a year and never let the novices in the temple know of her existence.

At most, she would walk around the back mountain occasionally. If anyone saw her, they would only treat her as a devotee who came to offer incense.

She did not want to implicate Hidden Spirit Temple!

Xuanyuan Ce closed his eyes and tried his best to calm himself down. He analyzed the information he had obtained from the abbot.

Someone was after her!

The child was gone!

She was skilled and knew how to use poison. What kind of person could force her to that extent?

Xuanyuan Ce knew that he could not get anything else out of this abbot. He slowly stood up and prepared to leave.

A wind blew past, causing the bamboo forest to rustle. At the same time, it brought with it…

“Wait.” The abbot suddenly shouted, “Do you smell something?”

Xuanyuan Ce paused. He really did not want to talk to this person. He was angry that this person had hidden it from him back then, but he hated himself even more.

However, the smell was too strong for him to ignore. He sniffed and subconsciously said, “It seems to be the smell of fish being roasted.”

As soon as he finished speaking, a figure fell from the sky with a bang.

Chu Feng stood on the tree and counted how many fish that person had killed. He was counting seriously when the abbot shouted, scaring him so much that he lost his balance and fell.

Chu Feng got up and met two gazes. He rubbed his nose and felt inexplicably like he had been caught doing something bad.

However, he wasn’t the one catching the fish.

“Someone is roasting fish by the pond.” He exposed her without hesitation.

The abbot’s pupils constricted and he ran in the direction of the pond. His monk robes fluttered with the wind.

How could someone who was so old have such speed?

Xuanyuan Ce raised his eyebrows and followed. He finally realized that the abbot was deliberately exaggerating the details of the pregnancy to scare him.

However, even without those accidents, he knew that the woman had almost died during labor.

If Ji Luo was still alive, she probably hated him to the core.

Beside the release pool, Shen Yijia picked up a roasted black fish, tore off a piece of fish, and brought it to Furball’s mouth. “Hurry up and eat. I have to go down the mountain after eating.”

She was afraid that Furball would not be used to a new environment, so she asked Mo Yuan and the other two to wait at the foot of the mountain. She rode Furball and accompanied it to walk around the mountains. They seemed to be patrolling their territory. As they walked, they discovered this pond.

There was nothing strange about having a pond in the mountains. What was surprising was the densely packed fish in the pool. They were all very fat.

Shen Yijia felt that they could not swim anymore.

This was a pleasant surprise. She immediately decided to cook a delicious meal for Furball here and bring some home to make dried fish.

While roasting the fish, she killed the fish at the same time. In the end, she was so happy that she forgot the time and burned the fish.

Fortunately, it was only the outer layer.

Furball shrank back. When it met Shen Yijia’s caring gaze, it opened its mouth with tears in its eyes.

It regretted it. Why did it have to see this person?

“Amitabha. How can we kill in the Buddhist Sect?” The abbot looked at the clean fish that had been skewered there and felt dizzy.

Originally, there would be novices walking around the back mountain, but because of Xuanyuan Ce, he reminded them not to come to the back mountain for the next few days.

Unexpectedly, this happened.
