Chapter 483: Night Fell (1)
Not long after that, Uncle Nine and Ah Ke came back out from the room.
The two chatted with Old Ba when they saw him.
Uncle Nine invited Shen Yanxiao and Vermillion Bird to stay at his house for the time being and promised that he would find a way to send them back the next morning.
“Thank you, Uncle Nine.” Shen Yanxiao extended her appreciation with a smile, even as questions piled in her mind.
Even if we cant find a way to send you back tomorrow, the people delivering our crops will be here in a few days.
We can ask them to send you home as well,” Ah Ke said with a smile.
“It is a pity that we cannot leave the village.
Otherwise, I could send you back today.” Old Ba sighed.
He wanted to help the two children find their family as soon as possible.
“You cannot leave the village” Shen Yanxiao was surprised to hear that.
“Old Ba, it is already so late, you should get on with your business.
I will take care of the two kids here.” Old Ba was about to explain when Uncle Nine interrupted him.
What great timing!
“Yes, of course.
Then we shall take off now.” Old Ba and Ah Ke left after they said their goodbyes to Uncle Nine.
Uncle Nine brought Shen Yanxiao and the Vermillion Bird to a small cabin next to the house.
The cabin was so small that it could only house a simple bed.
“You can sleep here tonight.
Dont go out at night if you dont have to; the Ying Qi in our village is very heavy.
Id hate to see you two get scared by some ghastly things,” Uncle Nine told them kindly.
“We wont!” Shen Yanxiao and Vermillion Bird nodded as if they would give their full cooperation.
Uncle Nine had other business to attend to, so he left them by themselves after that.
Shen Yanxiao and the Vermillion Bird were the only ones left in the room.
The little Phoenix, who had been hiding in Vermillion Birds hair, snuck out when Uncle Nine left.
It fluffed its feathers and stared at the strange environment with wide eyes.
“People in this village are odd,” the Vermillion Bird said as he sat crossed-legged on the bed.
“Are you planning to stay in the village How would you get to the Graveyard of the Sun if they send you away”
Shen Yanxiao looked around the few things in the room.
Shen Yanxiao answered quietly, “I will not stay here, of course.
Yes, I think the people here are strange too.
However, if we were to get to the Graveyard of the Sun, we must pass through this village.
It seems like there are many villagers here in the day.
If we were to go now, something might go wrong.
So, lets sneak away tonight.”
People in the village appeared to be quite friendly.
However, they were vigilant as they remembered the Cave Wolves Mercenary Groups experience.
Shen Yanxiao could not guarantee that it would be a trouble-free journey if she were to head toward the Graveyard of the Sun during the day.
She would rather sneak out than to expose her intention to the villagers.
She did not want to make herself a target.
It would be perfect if the villagers would not stop her from going to the Graveyard of the Sun.
However, if they did, then Shen Yanxiao wanted to take every precaution to avert any danger.
Thieves were always better protected at night.
Shen Yanxiao did not spend more time thinking about it since she had made up her mind.
She would play it by ear.
She had the Vermillion Bird with her, so she could easily make her escape in case of a dangerous situation.
However, she still had a hard time picturing those kind and humble villagers as violent thugs.
The night eventually cast its shadow over the small village.
The villagers, who had been busy all day long, put away their farming tools and returned to their homes.
Shen Yanxiao sat by the window.
She watched as the day left and the night fell.
Calmness glistened in the depth of her eyes.
