Xiao Lan Hua had a nightmare. She dreamed that Changheng was going to kill her and Dongfang Qingcang. Xiao Lan Hua woke up in fear. At the same time, Dongfang Qingcang also woke up with a strange feeling. He contemplated for a while and laughed. After a long time of becoming an emotionless creature, he finally felt fear.
According to Shang Que, Dongfang Qingcang’s cultivation had reached perfection. He was also a disciplined person who woke up early. Therefore, a lazy plant fairy-like Xiao Lan Hua was truly irksome for him.
Dongfang Qingcang’s attempt to wake her up was fruitless. The sleepy Xiao Lan Hua refused to wake up and told him to count the flowers in the garden if he was too bored. After she said that, the Xilan seal on Dongfang Qingcang’s forehead shone. And all of a sudden Dongfang Qingcang was transported into the garden. His hand and forefinger stretched up, and he started to count the flowers. All that happened against his will. However, he could not refuse it, no matter how hard he tried.
Angered, Dongfang Qingcang called Shang Que and told him to find The Book of Xilan, which recorded every secret from the Xilan clan. A while later, Shang Que returns with a very long scroll. Together they try to find information about the Xilan curse that binds him.
Dongfang Qingcang found information about the Heart Curse. It has been written on the scroll that the curse bearer and the receiver would share the same joy and sorrow as well as life and death. Their bodies and minds were connected too. Dongfang Qingcang would feel Xiao Lan Hua’s emotions, and every injury to her body would appear on him. On the contrary, Xiao Lan Hua wouldn’t feel any of Dongfang Qingcang’s emotions and injuries. And if Xiao Lan Hua uses the Xilan Seal to command him, he cannot refuse at all. Dongfang Qingcang was at a loss. The Heart Curse has made Xiao Lan Hua his biggest weakness.
But Shang Que made a good remark. He said that Xiao Lan Hua didn’t know that she was a descendant of the Xilan clan. And it means that she didn’t know about the curse or how to use it. Dongfang Qingcang confirmed it to Xiao Lan Hua. When he reported that there were 8,452 flowers in the garden, Xiao Lan Hua was dumbfounded. She was surprised that Dongfang Qingcang would take her words seriously. She didn’t know that The Heart Curse was taking effect.
Xiao Lan Hua asked Dongfang Qingcang. After all this time, the silly orchid still didn’t know his identity. However, when Dongfang Qingcang tells her his name, Xiao Lan Hua didn’t pay attention. She misheard his name was Dongfang Qiang.
Xiao Lan Hua said that the surname Dongfang was not good because it could be connected to the dead demon lord Dongfang Qingcang. But Xiao Lan Hua tried to comfort him. She said that he looked better than Dongfang Qingcang who was written in the book. The book that she read said that Dongfang Qingcang was a green monster with fangs, horrendous face, and his hair was full of lice. Dongfang Qingcang was fuming. He cannot believe that people in Shuiyuntian would describe him like that.
To get back at her, Dongfang Qingcang scared her by telling her that Dongfang Qingcang’s favorite food was a chubby little fairy with thin skin and tender meat like her. He would have the fairy boiled, fried, steamed, or roasted. And it worked. Xiao Lan Hua was terrified to hear that…🤣
In the end, she called him Daqiang…😅
Dongfang Qingcang was struggling to hold back his anger when he found out how bad his image was in the Shuiyuntian history book and Xiao Lan Hua’s mind.
It’s soo funny to see how Dongfang Qingcang and Xiao Lan Hua interact. She was foolish to the point that everything she said and did could drive him mad. You could see that Dongfang Qingcang’s blood was boiling.
Dongfang Qingcang told her that during the battle, Chidi Nüzi never defeated him, and she stabbed herself with Shuofeng sword. When Xiao Lan Hua questioned him about how he could know such details, Dongfang Qingcang answered that he had read it in a book. He also asked about a torn page in the book. Xiao Lan Hua dodged the question by running to do chores.
Dongfang Qingcang told Shang Que to bring The Heart-Hidden hairpin. And he must be careful not to be noticed.
Although they had a bad relationship, Xiao Lan Hua enjoyed Dongfang Qingcang’s company. She had been lonely for the past 1,000 years.
The next day, Xiao Lan Hua’s attempt to fix the Destiny book was in vain. Her power was not strong enough to fix a badly broken destiny book. She fainted on the spot. Shang Que advises his master to nurture Xiao Lan Hua’s power using guidance from the secret book.
Meanwhile, Changheng was busy making Immortal Pill with his power. This servant, Qingchuan, tried to persuade him to stop guarding the furnace. However, Changheng refused to do so. Rong Hao helped Changheng by dragging Qingchuan for tea and gossip.
Changheng reminiscences the past. 500 years ago, when he was in a bad condition because of injuries, Xiao Lan Hua, who had just been born from an orchid, helped him. She didn’t have any name, much less a friend.
Looked like the Immortal Pill was made for Xiao Lan Hua.
Dongfang QIngcang tried to fix Chidi Nüzi’s destiny book. But his hard work was fruitless.
That night, Dongfang Qingcang and Shang Que read the scroll to find a way to nurture Xiao Lan Hua’s power. And it turned out, it’s quite complicated to nurture a Xilan grass. But Dongfang Qingcang didn’t have any choice but to follow his guidance.
Therefore, since that day, Dongfang Qingcang could be seen in the forest, collecting morning dews for the little orchid. Ahhhh… Dongfang Qingcang, I can feel your hardship. Raising plants was never my specialty…😫
The Immortal Pill that Changheng made with great difficulty is ready. He was about to give it to Xiao Lan Hua when Qingchuan reported that Lord Yunzhong had called him for an important meeting in Yunzhong Water Pavilion and he must not delay it. Therefore, Changheng put the pill back in his sleeve and went to the pavilion.
Meanwhile, in the Arbiter Hall, Xiao Lan Hua was looking for Dongfang Qingcang. She ran up and down around the Arbiter Hall and called his name. When she realized that he might have gone… Her face lit up and Xiao Lan Hua happily called her spirit friends.
Xiao Lan Hua and the plants spirits were happy because Dongfang Qingcang was gone. The spirits were worried about her because Dongfang Qingcang was a criminal.
Unbeknownst to them, Dongfang Qingcang overheard their conversation. He felt a sense of inexplicable feelings because he was worried about whether Xiao Lan Hua would dislike him. Dongfang Qingcang was also touched when he heard Xiao Lan Hua’s sympathy for him. Xiao Lan Hua has been lonely for 1,000 years, but Dongfang Qingcang had been imprisoned for tens of thousands of years. So he must be lonelier than she is. Xiao Lan Hu was worried if Dongfang Qingcang turned himself in, he would feel alone again. Xiao Lan Hua also said she was sad because Dongfang Qingcang left without saying goodbye.
All of a sudden, Dongfang Qingcang appeared with a bowl of morning dew. He told Xiao Lan Hua that morning dew was good for her cultivation roots. However, Xiao Lan Hua could not drink the morning dew because it was too cold. So Dongfang Qingcang makes use of his Hellfire power to heat the water. But then it was too hot for Xiao Lan Hua. Dongfang Qingcang had to blow the dew to cool it down. But again, she still could not drink it because it was tasteless.
Poor Daqiang… His effort was in vain…🤣
Lord Yun Zhong called Changheng because he wanted to ask him whether he had found the whereabouts of the Goddess of Xishan. Changheng was worried the Goddess had already passed away. But Lord Yunzhong rebuked him. The Goddess of Xishan has sealed Tai Sui, the Evil king. If she was really dead, Tai Sui broke free from the seal and wreaked havoc in three realms.
Lord Yunzhong reprimanded Changheng for talking carelessly. He also asked Changheng what he would do after he found the Goddess. Changheng resolutely said that he would complete the engagement. Lord Yunzhong showed Changheng the handkerchief that he found In the forest. Lord Yunzhong accused Changheng of having an intention to break off the engagement and having an affair with the owner of the handkerchief. Lord Yunzhong scolded and reminded Changheng of the importance of his engagement with the Goddess.
Meanwhile, Xiao Lan Hua added six kinds of herbs and seven kinds of honey to the dew before drinking the whole bowl under the scrutiny of the demon lord. That night, Dongfang Qingcang orders Shang Que to protect Xiao Lan Hua while he went somewhere.
Changheng reminisced times 500 years ago. He was touched by her when Xiao Lan Hua said that she’d protect him. All this time, Changheng was always the one who protected others. Nobody had told him that they would protect him.
With a sad feeling, Changheng stared at the handkerchief before he put it in a box. Qingchuan came with a box of pastries from Fairy Danyin. Changheng reprimanded him for accepting the box. He also told Qingchuan to take the Immortal Pill away because it was useless now.
At the Arbiter Hall, Xiao Lan Hua was preparing to sleep when Dongfang Qingcang appeared in her room. He gave her an eternal fire to warm up the room. He took the fire from the magma of the Cangyan Sea.
Xiao Lan Hua reprimanded Dongfang Qingcang for recklessly going to the Cangyan Sea only for her. That place was too dangerous, and he might lose his life. However, she didn’t know that for Dongfang Qingcang, the strongest person in the three realms, the task was nothing. But Xiao Lan Hua had another opinion. She thought that Dongfang Qingcang must love her so much for overseeing those dangers.
Dongfang Qingcang told her that she could like anyone, but she only belonged to him. For a short while, Xiao Lan Hua was carried away by his sweet words.
Hmmmm… these two people obviously thought differently.
Xiao Lan Hua tried to persuade him again to confess his crime so he could get out of prison as soon as possible and live a new life. Dongfang Qingcang was so angry, he didn’t spare a word and just left. Dongfang Qingcang and Shang Que are still discussing a way to raise Xiao Lan Hua. Our demon lord concluded that Arbiter Hall was facing the north. And it was the reason why Xiao Lan Hua lacked sunlight. Therefore, Dongfang Qingcang decided to take her to the highest place with the most sunlight in Shuiyuntian.
When Dongfang Qingcang could not wake her up, he took her away to Yunzhong Water Pavilion. Xiao Lan Huan was frantic when she heard where they were. Yunzhong Water Pavilion was Lord Yunzhong’s hall. Nobody could enter without being summoned. Suddenly, the guards appear, but they can not see them. Xiao Lan Hua was surprised to know they were invisible, thanks to Dongfang Qingcang’s power.
Dongfang Qingcang took her to see the first ray of sunlight. Xiao Lan Hua was very happy to see the sunrise and the cloud whale.
From the face of Dongfang Qingcang, I guess that he could feel Xiao Lan Hua’s happiness inside him, but he just didn’t know that that feeling was happiness. She also caught him staring at her…😁
That night at the Arbiter Hall, Dongfang Qingcang recollected his effort to collect morning dew and take her to bask in the sunlight. Suddenly, he felt pain and the Xilan seal appeared on his forehead. It turned out that Xiao Lan Hua drank the elixir that she took from his room. The elixir’s nature is Yang, and incompatible with her body. That’s why Dongfang Qingcang hid it from her. He helped her to ease the pain.
That night, Xiao Lan Hua felt the pain was killing her, and she felt like she was dying. So she started to say her last words. Xiao Lan Hua said that Dongfang Qingcang might be bad-tempered and sharp-tongued. But in the reality, he was a nice person. She also persuades him (again) to confess his crime. Losing freedom is better than losing a life. But Dongfang Qingcang assured Xiao Lan Hua that she would not die.
Xiao Lan Hua said that she missed her master and the flower soup that Si Ming always cooked for her if she was sick. Because of that, Xiao Lan Hua drowned in sorrow so much that it bothers Dongfang Qingcang. He could not stand the sad feeling. Therefore, he started to cook flower soup for her. His action touched her feelings. Once again, Xiao Lan Hua wanted to cry because of happiness and it made him confused. Therefore, she taught him that people might cry when they were sad but also when they are happy. After he heard the explanation, Dongfang Qingcang said that having emotions was a problem.
Dongfang Qingcang told Xiao Lan Hua to drink more soup, but she refused and went to bed. When Dongfang Qingcang tasted the soup. He understood why Xiao Lan Hua finished it in one sip. The taste was terrible..😝
When Dongfang Qingcang went to the garden, he realized that the garden was somehow connected to Xiao Lan Hua’s primordial spirit. Therefore, to nurse Xiao Lan Hua was to nurse her heart. But Dongfang Qingcang was troubled by the idea of making Xiao Lan Hua happy.
