Miss Cannon Fodder Wants To Escape Death Flags - Chapter 10
It was later discovered that the master himself had also eaten fried melon skin and even developed a brand new fish called ‘Luoying Baixiang extract’.1
It was fried flower petals and leaves.
This night pearl was the only valuable object he had in his body and should have been well kept but…
The inexperience little white dragon summoned up his courage as he quickly glance at Ning Ning’s pale face and secretly made up his mind.
Since they were both disciple of the same master they should helped each other. If this thing could exchange the confidence of his senior sister to continue living then sacrificing his valuable thing was nothing.
After all he was of indomitable spirit! It was no big deal for him to drink dew and eat leaves again but if his senior sister goes crazy her whole life would be over!
On the other hand Ning Ning who was offered with the pearl was in a complicated mood.
In the original plot, Lin Xun was indeed a while lotus with no ill intention and a very soft hearted person. When he sees injustice he would go up to serve the justice even if he was too shy and stammers while blushing as he help.
The reason why the author set him into this character was to highlight the male lead Pei Ji’s decisive, cold and unrestrained nature.
To be honest while reading the novel from the a reader’s point of view, Ning Ning had also felt that the young prince was really overflowing with sympathy but when she herself became the one being pitied by him—
This is a little angel ah, woo woo!2
Obviously he is poor like me but he can still give me his last assets!
What about double standard? Lin Xun is really great!
“No, no, no, I don’t need it.”
Ning Ning hurriedly waved her hand.
“Don’t you have small amount of sprit stone left as well?”
She said cryptically, deliberately omitted Lin Xun’s topic of eating melon skin and washing in the rain so as to preserved the child’s simple and fragile self-esteem.
Unexpectedly the silly son of the dragon palace smiled at her.
“It doesn’t matter, last time senior elder sister took me to Wan Jianzong and stole a lot of melons. The melon skin is enough to eat for several—”
Before Lin Xun could finished speaking, he paused.
He has low self-esteem and was easily shy, so when he talked earlier he deliberately hid his identity and lied that those things were done by a ‘friend’ but now this sentence…
Wasn’t it just a big and bold declaration that he was that friend that he mentioned earlier?
A hot air immediately surged up and his white jade like face was covered with layer of crimson color. It was like a halo of ink which became thicker and thicker and finally turning red and covering his whole face.
Too, too embarrassing!
He wanted to make a good impression in front of his senior sister.
But he was not good at communicating with other ever since he was a child. He was too shy to speak when he met this senior sister several times before.
Today, he heard something exploded in her room so he went into her yard without much thought and didn’t expect to make such a joke of himself instead.
Li Xun stammered and could not think of anything when he suddenly heard Ning Ning’s voice, her tone was no different from before.
“Brought back enough melons to eat for several days? How many melons did you and senior sister steal, the Ten Thousand Sword Sect did not catch you?”
She didn’t hear it wrong.
He was really taking about ‘melon skin’ earlier.
He was in an apprehensive mood after hearing Ning Ning say this, and his senior sister looked normal.
Seeing this, he guessed he must have not heard his last sentence and didn’t associate him with ‘that friend’.
Li Xun pursed his lips and smiled, the redness around his ears receded a bit.
“Quite a lot, does senior sister want to know about us stealing melons?”
“You tell me.”
So the topic successfully turned to the melon field between the senior sister stealing at Wan Jianzong. And even remember what his senior elder sister said.
“Stealing melons can’t be counted as stealing. Are sword cultivator be easily called as thief?
Lin Xun spoke seriously while helping Ning Ning cleaned up the debris all over the ground and didn’t notice that Ning Ning quietly breathed a sigh of relief.
Phew, that was close.
Looking at the little white dragon earlier, his eyes were red and his small face was pale. Fortunately she reacted quickly and pretended to be confused.
Otherwise, she was afraid she would really have to cry out.
On the second day, Ning Ning was woken up the system.
Luckily the bed and the furnace were far apart so the bed did not exploded yesterday.
After saying goodbye to Lin Xun, she quickly dragged her tired body to sleep.
When she first opened her eyes the next day what she saw were a few large paragraphs suspended in her head.
[Ding! Mission Posted!]
[The Sword Sect Competition is underway and you hold a grudge for losing Pei Ji yesterday so you vow to teach him a lesson.]
[Please go to the tournament arena immediately and attack Pei Ji in the tournament secretly.]
The plot where it all started was finally here.
Ning Ning sat up from the bed in daze and touched her messy hair.
This was the starting point of Pei Ji’s counter attack, it was one of the very impressive scenario in the original plot.
The Xuanxu Sword Sect adopts the elimination system. Pei Ji defeated Ning Ning yesterday so he still has to continue the competition with other disciple today.
Though he don’t know whether to say his luck was good or bad, since his opponent today was actually a disciple of Jin Danqi.
‘Luoying Baixiang extract’.1-literal meaning is a drop of passion fruit extract
woo woo!2– sound of crying
