When I came round, a blood-red and yellow sunset was reflected on the snowy leaves of the icy tree that had filled the sky, strikingly colorful like tears of blood, appearing as beautiful as a rose… Jiang Xiaorong, why the heck did you grow and fill the sky for no reason?
I crawled up and even had to push aside the branches all over my body, as I had been completely buried by tree roots. Frowning, I asked, “Xiaorong, are you protecting me?”
The banyan tree excitedly shook his tree trunk, even curling up his roots and tightening around me, as if asking for credit for how well he had protected me.
“Well done.” I nodded, then asked with a slight smile, “Now then, tell me, how many caterpillar crystals did you eat while I was asleep?”
The banyan tree suddenly froze, as if he was just a tree that was incapable of moving. That shaking just now must have been caused by the wind.
Rolling my eyes, I said, “Still playing dumb? Don’t tell me there’s nothing left? Besides, aren’t you afraid of exploding from overeating? Now, hand over the rest of the crystals.”
