I couldn’t return the body. Even if I could, I couldn’t bear to leave Dàgē and Xiǎomèi. So I could only make up for it in a different way. I could marry her, protecting the Ice Emperor’s little brother, and naturally take Mom in as my mother-in-law. Then I could call her “Mom.” This was the best solution I could come up with.

Guan Weijun was stunned. Junjun as well. Both of their eyes were wide open, as if they had suddenly seen me go crazy. Well, I admit that this sudden marriage proposal was a bit crazy. But hey, yesterday, Guan Weijun had only taken one look and had wanted to marry Dàgē. I, at least, had been looking at her for several days already. There isn’t a need for this level of surprise, right?

Guan Weijun rolled her eyes exaggeratedly and huffed, “I’m not interested in little boys. Scram, let your big brother come!”

I was in an awkward position. Dàgē did say he could marry her, but that was absolutely not okay. This was my own problem. I couldn’t just let Dàgē sacrifice himself and marry a woman he didn’t even like!

As for Dàgē ever becoming fond of Guan Weijun, chances were… and this was not me putting myself down or anything, but in my last life, I really wasn’t some great beauty. This Guan Weijun in front of me was even worse at prettying herself up than me, and would barely pass for an athletic cutie. Compared to that deceased, gorgeous assassin who had knocked on our door, they were fundamentally two different species.

After sleeping in for two whole days, I couldn’t escape my chicken soup fate. Actually, the soup left no aftertaste in my mouth, so it wasn’t particularly hard to finish.

Well, it was about time to face the problem regarding Guan Weijun. Ignoring her wasn’t the way to go. I didn’t know if the solution I had thought of would work though, and I was hesitant about carrying it out, but this was also the only way I could make it up to Guan Weijun.

With feelings of guilt, I looked down at the ice pattern on my left wrist… Hm? Has the color turned darker? Although it hadn’t returned to its original shade, it wasn’t as faint as it had been yesterday, like it was on the verge of fading.

This ever-changing shade is making me so nervous!

Forget it. This wasn’t supposed to be mine in the first place. I forced myself to stop thinking about the ice pattern and walked out the door to find Guan Weijun, but Junjun blocked me right outside the door.

“Érge, where are you going? I want to go, too.”

I frowned. If Junjun comes along, things might be a bit… Suddenly, I was hit with Junjun’s ultimate puppy-eye attack. I immediately surrendered. I could face my big brother sternly, but once I was in front of my little sister, my body would turn into putty.

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.”

After communicating with Xiaorong and confirming that he knew what he needed to do, I jumped straight out of the window and formed my ice dagger in midair. Semi-transparent branches shot out. I was pushed right at the cocoon. Since I hadn’t mastered this move yet, my face almost crashed into it. Fortunately, I pulled the ice spear out in time and used the force from the push to pierce right into the top of the cocoon.

I drove the spear head in and felt satisfied but immediately met resistance. I tightened my right hand around the handle, then grabbed the ice dagger on my thigh with my left hand and stabbed it right in the same area as the spear head.

By the time we returned to the mini storage, it was already very late. There was no need for discussion. Everyone automatically understood that we were going to stay here for the night. The dark was definitely not the best time for the living to be active.

Upon returning, Guan Weijun ascertained everyone’s well-being. She then went to the side with Zhang Jing and Tai Wen for a private discussion. The topic was probably the distribution of crystals. Those two seemed to be her right- and left-hand. I didn’t know how she was going to distribute them; there were five crystals, so it was best to give them all to one person. One person could hardly feel any effect with partial consumption. But at the end of the day, the distribution itself was always the difficult part. One wrong move, and just a few crystals could shatter the team’s harmony.

I scrunched my brows and watched Guan Weijun. She placed the crystals in Tai Wen’s hands. I couldn’t really tell from my angle, but it seemed to be all of the crystals…

“Please don’t be afraid of my Xiao Jun.”

Startled, I looked back and saw Mom looking at me with uneasiness. She even anxiously explained, “You probably saw Xiao Jun’s strength, right? She’s actually a good girl. She’s just… just a bit tomboyish and learned a bit of boxing. I don’t know how her strength became so powerful…”

I looked back on how Guan Weijun could use her bare fists to smash brains into pulp all over the floor. And this much power was before she even ate any crystals! But to me, that scene wasn’t gruesome. I just found it regrettable. If I had been that strong in my last life, maybe Mom wouldn’t have passed away so early on in the beginning stages of the apocalypse.
