Stealing the Yuri Protagonist Harem (Xianxia) - Chapter 137
Luo Wusheng quickly completed his confirmation.
As he watched Lu Yuliu take out the short wooden sword and instantly become alert due to the familiar words on it, the little girls immediately scanned her surroundings as if she were a startled bird. Then, because she couldn’t find himself hidden, she let out a sigh of relief, and Luo Wusheng fell into contemplation.
Why is Little Yuli here, and why did Yue Xuanji hide Little Yuli in the Wandering Immortal Inn…
Hidden away, Luo Wusheng looked at the reply Little Yuli had given him.
[I’m not telling you!]
This girl probably hasn’t learned to use evasive words that are less likely to get her in trouble. Instead, she hasn’t figured out how to answer this question at all.
(If I were to reveal myself in front of her right now, would I give this girl a psychological trauma? Will she get PTSD every time she sees me asking where she is in her wooden sword?)
Luo Wusheng thought for a moment and chose to watch what this girl was up to now with great interest.
Judging by Little Yuli’s familiar looking clothing, she probably hadn’t left the house during the day these past two days, and if it weren’t for Luo Wusheng staying at the inn tonight, he probably wouldn’t have noticed her at all.
He had been worried that something might go wrong during the process of collecting good fortune, so he had been paying attention to any special guests who had checked into Wandering Immortal Inn these past two days… But he hadn’t expected that it would be because of a certain white-haired loli that he would catch a big fish.
At this point, Luo Wusheng’s thoughts had become clearer and he had even started to make some guesses.
Others might not know what’s special about Little Yuli, but he did.
He had always been trying to curry favor with the protagonist’s group to change his fate of dying in the Demon Purging War, right?
If so, could the good fortune that changed his fate this time be related to Little Yuli, the true protagonist? Is that why the tower master of the Tower of Heavenly Mechanics concealed Little Yuli’s aura from him before tomorrow?
As Luo Wusheng thought about it, he watched the young girl in front of him, after putting away the message-transmitting sword, draw on the door layer by layer with spiritual energy.
At first, Luo Wusheng was a bit puzzled, not understanding what this girl was doing… But soon, he remembered the significance of this operation in the original work.
(Is this Little Yuli’s self-imposed isolation formation to prevent herself from having her episodes noticed by an outsider?)
In the original work, after experiencing several major incidents caused by her episodes, Lu Yuliu, in pain and determination, used her talent and effort to create a formation specifically designed to limit herself.
As long as this formation is set up around her, the sword intent within her body would become entangled and chaotic. After a series of mysterious reactions, it would send numerous feedback to her with thoughts of not wanting to leave the formation inside her mind.
In this way, with her mind that can only form simple thoughts during her episodes, this formation would greatly influence her, achieving the goal of securely locking herself in her room during her episodes.
But shouldn’t this formation have been researched at least after she had episodes in front of her master? Why did she bring out the finished product so quickly?
And the fact that she’s setting up this formation now…
Luo Wusheng suddenly realized something.
It had been exactly twenty-two days since the last time Lu Yuliu had an episode.
Considering the time of when her episodes would usually happen, it was indeed around time for her to have an episode.
And then thinking back to the fact that she didn’t have an episode in the Sword Sect before and was close to her master…
(Gasp—does this mean that Little Yuli canon first episode still hasn’t happened yet?)
Luo Wusheng felt that he had already guessed why Little Yuli was here.
All those Sword Sect missions that she said we’re all just a cover. The real reason was that she needed a place to quietly wait out her episode. After all, the tragic history of what he had done to her when she had her last episode when he was around her was still vivid in her memory.
But if Lu Yuliu had an episode in the royal city this time, what would she do to get her master to her bed?
Wouldn’t having her episode without her master around mean this flag raising event is going to be wasted?
(Well, not necessarily… According to the Second Law of Episode Activation in the original work, every time Little Yuli confidently sets up a formation, thinking that nothing unexpected will happen, there will always be a harem member entering it in the end, unfolding the highly anticipated plot…)
That’s right, the formation that little yuli prepared in advance is something that she use to protect herself from herself, not from others. While it’s true that she’s unlikely to leave the formation, it doesn’t prevent others from having the opportunity to enter. Perhaps when she is having an episode, her master would show up and be worried about her student, and naively went inside the formation, and would end up being pushed to the ground by little yuli and have her flag be raised.
At this moment, Lu Yuliu had completed the formation and looked at the wooden sword in her hand with a hint of confusion on her face, as if she were curious why she hadn’t received a sarcastic reply from a certain Demon Sect Holy Saint.
However, she didn’t dwell on it for long. After scanning the area outside the door once more, she prepared to return to her room.
After some hesitation, Luo Wusheng chose not to reveal himself.
Although he felt that the good fortune might be related to Little Yuli, there was only half an hour left until the crucial moment. It wouldn’t hurt to wait until he understood what Yue Xuanji had left on that jade slip and confirmed that the good fortune was indeed related to Little Yuli before giving the young girl a pleasant surprise.
Watching the young girl close the room door with a relieved smile on her face, Luo Wusheng squinted his eyes, calculating the time.
This critical last hour was quite challenging to endure…
Just then, the sound of a door opening made Luo Wusheng instantly snap out of his thoughts, and his attention shifted to the direction of another door.
(That room… should also be empty…)
Luo Wusheng looked at the door that had opened but had no one coming out of it, and his scalp tingled.
If he wasn’t sure that this is not the world of xianxia, he would have thought that he was in a horror-themed story.
Adjusting his mindset, he moved closer to the door and looked inside the room.
He saw that the room was decorated in an ancient style but didn’t have too many furnishings. There was a small incense burner placed in front of the door, emitting a hazy smoke that turned the room into what seemed like a fairyland.
Through the smoke, he vaguely saw the figure of a young girl kneeling beside a chess table placed on a bed.
A jade chain shimmered on the girl’s left hand, and between her two fingers, she held a chess piece, pointing in Luo Wusheng’s direction.
Faced with this scene, Luo Wusheng’s mouth twitched, but he secretly breathed a sigh of relief.
The old woman who had been AFK for so many days had finally appeared.
“Holy Saint~ How about a game with this lady?” Her affected voice carried a playful tone.
Hmm, if he could record this scene and show it to the little fox demon empress, it would surely result in another “sisterly love” drama.
Unfortunately, there were no cameras in this era.
“Miss Yue seems to be quite leisurely at this moment… Could it be that after this game, my good fortune will arrive?”
Stepping into the room, the door behind Luo Wusheng closed under some mysterious force.
However, he showed no surprise and instead sat down on the other side of the chess table, crossing through the smoke with a smile on his face, and faced Yue Xuanji.
With this big supporter here, much of his nervousness disappeared.
After he finished speaking, Yue Xuanji, with the star-moon jade chain on her hand, lightly lifted her finger, and the chess piece between her fingers fell onto the chessboard.
“If you win, then maybe it’s time.”
A smile appeared on the little loli’s face.
