Rong Yue was woken up by hunger.
His stomach had been so empty that he didn’t feel anything, and his arms and legs were weak. Outside came the sound of excited people, accompanied by the rumble of drums and the whine of bone ocarinas.
Today was the day the chief’s youngest daughter, Yu Lian, got married.
Several warriors from the Sentei tribe had come to take Yu Lian away after the grand gathering celebration held by the Gongshan tribe. From now on, Yu Lian would be the contracted wife of the first warrior of the Sentei tribe.
If there was no Yu Lian, the protagonist of today’s gathering celebration would have been Yue.
Only then did Rong Yue realize that he was encircled in a hot embrace, and when he looked up, he was almost smothered by the hot pectoral muscles.
“!!!” Rong Yue had never been so close to a human being, he subconsciously reached out and pushed –
He couldn’t be moved.
Not only did he not move him, his weak and feeble movements felt flirtatious.
Rong Yue: “…………”
He was so immersed in the confusion and shock that he didn’t notice that the man holding him was awakened by his movement.
The robust arms loosened a little, and a low, calm male voice rang out from close range: “You’re awake?”
Rong Yue’s ears went red, but his attention was suddenly pulled back by the other’s body temperature.
He reached out and took the back of his hand and pressed it against the man’s forehead, which was very hot.
“You’re feverish.” Rong Yue said with a frown.
The man had obviously expected him to cry out, not take the initiative to care for him, so he froze for a moment.
Rong Yue raised his hand to use a [Sacred Prayer] that would reinvigorate him, but it wasn’t until he accidentally touched the other man’s face that he remembered he was now at level one, and his empty hand wasn’t holding his staff.
He and the man looked at each other awkwardly, and the other’s deep, handsome face, which had been filled with a stern intent, was washed away by a smile.
“Yesterday, you were still making a fuss about not marrying me, today why are you suddenly so …… “Halfway through the man’s sentence, he suddenly grabbed Rong Yue’s hair: “What’s wrong with your hair? Why is it suddenly white?”
Rong Yue was stunned and quickly looked down.
Only to see that this body’s originally black waist-length hair, was now silver white, the colour stopped at shoulder length.
Rong Yue was familiar with the color.
Was this proof of his possession of this body?
Should he tell this nominal “husband”, his true origin?
Rong Yue was once a high and mighty pope, a man of grace, but he was also distant. No one had offended him except his old adversary and some players.
This man in front of him gave him an extremely fresh experience.
To be honest, the life of eating flowers and drinking dew all day didn’t meet his inner expectations. He once prayed that he could live an easier life in his next life, not having to be by himself ……
Now, was this his chance?
He locked eyes with Tian Yang and was just about to say something when he suddenly felt a wave of vertigo and fell backwards –
The man was quick to hold him in his arms and frowned: “Are you in pain? Come on, I’ll take you to Lord Xueqi’s place.”
Before Rong Yue could explain, suddenly his body was light, he was picked up by the man in a princess hug and was outside in the blink of an eye.
The clamor of the crowd celebrating was immediately clear.
“…… Tian Yang!” He couldn’t help but shout out the other man’s name: “Put me down!”
The person holding him ignored him, so Rong Yue could only give up, “I’m just hungry, very, very hungry!”
Tian Yang slowed down and frowned, “There’s only a little dried meat left at home, so I’d better take you over to the square to eat.”
Yu Lian’s wedding was a major event for the whole tribe. On this day, anyone could go to the square to sing and dance, and there were no restrictions on food and drink, it was all provided by the chiefs and elders.
People who usually had little money at home would go there to eat openly, while remembering the kindness of the tribal chief.
Rong Yue wanted to see this other world’s style with his own eyes, and was really hungry, so he stopped struggling and acquiesced to Tian Yang’s embrace.
“Yue” remembered Tian Yang as a wreck, but his embrace was still strong, and his speed wasn’t slow, he arrived at the square in a blink of an eye.
Gongshan was a large tribe, the population was several thousand people, so this event was quite lively.
A huge bonfire was burning in the center of the square, surrounded by warriors holding beast meat on the grill, and young girls going back and forth, holding unknown fruits and fresh spring water.
At the top of the bonfire, beast skin and plant fabric made up a high platform, a rugged man whose face couldn’t be seen was sitting with his arms around several women, from time to time he let out a bellowing laugh.
Just as Tian Yang stepped into the crowd, the people around him spotted him, and moved to avoid him. By the time he arrived at the low wooden table, a silent vacuum had formed around the two.
Rong Yue tugged on Tian Yang’s lapel, signaling him to put him down.
Tian Yang was afraid that the timid sacrifice wouldn’t adapt to the gaze of others, so he deliberately held him firmly, he wanted to feed him. But the little sacrifice wanted to come down, so he had to let go.
Rong Yue finally set his feet on the ground and stood on this strange land for the first time.
Everyone was looking at him.
If it was ‘Yue’, he would have been scared silly.
But for Rong Yue, who had been receiving the worship of millions of people for years, it was perfectly normal to be in the center of the gathering of eyes.
Since he decided to let himself go, Rong Yue’s heart churned with the desire to eat.
He sat down calmly and gracefully, scanned the food in front of him, and picked a bowl of something like paste. From this body’s memory, this was the usual food for everyone, called “twist soup”, similar to the rice porridge of the Wumang continent.
He held it up and took a sip.
…… Was just a paste with little taste.
Rong Yue was disappointed, but his body that had been hungry for too long had to eat something easy to digest first. Instead of touching the greasy barbecue, he reached for a bunch of little red fruits.
He casually said to Tian Yang, “You’re sick, eat less meat, come and have some soup too.”
The eyes of the onlookers widened in shock.
They heard that the chief raised a small sacrifice “Yue” who was a timid and soft teenager, if one spoke louder, he would cry in fear, he never went out of his own accord, in several years, he hadn’t even seen sunshine.
Yesterday, he refused to marry Tian Yang, crying loudly, many people living in the neighborhood heard ……
Now they finally saw him!
A dazzling young man, elegant posture, noble temperament, even more beautiful than the Yu Lian to be married today!
Tian Yang a dying cripple, was really too lucky!
Tian Yang was no less shocked than others, but no amount of doubt could suppress his good mood. He laughed out loud three times and walked over to Rong Yue and sat down.
“I’ll listen to my wife, I’ll eat whatever you want me to.”
Rong Yue was still not used to being so close to people, but it was hard to move away in full view of everyone, so he whispered, “It’s too crowded, go a little to the side.”
Tian Yang nodded, squeezed closer, and put a hand on Rong Yue’s waist.
Rong Yue: “…………”
Rong Yue’s upbringing prevented him from beating up a sick person, so he didn’t care about it, he simply relaxed to eat.
He also smoothly ate a small red fruit that Tian Yang fed to his mouth.
The two people were eating as if no one else was around when they suddenly heard a female voice screaming, “Why are you here!”
Rong Yue turned his head with a frown and saw a girl wearing a flower garland. She was wearing a light linen dress, her figure was shapely, and if she wasn’t cross-eyed, she was quite a pretty girl.
He recognized her from Yue’s memories, she was the chief’s youngest daughter, Yu Lian.
Without waiting for him to speak, Tian Yang first put down his bowl and stood up, stepped in front of Rong Yue and asked with a smile, “What’s wrong Missy, have we been expelled from the tribe? Not even allowed to eat a mouthful of rice?”
Tian Yang was the former tribe’s number one warrior, even though he was sick from poisoning, his strength wasn’t one in ten, but his aura was still powerful.
Yu Lian couldn’t help but take a step back, holding back her fear, she shouted angrily, “Yue never goes out! Did you force him? Although he is useless, he is also a sacrifice, if you mistreat him, you’re going to be driven out ……”
Before she finished speaking, Rong Yue stood up first, still holding the fruit with one hand, his other hand grabbed Tian Yang and put him behind him.
“Who abused me?”
His temperament was gentle, but his eyes had no warmth. Yu Lian froze at the unfamiliar look, and suddenly screamed in shock again, “Yue! What happened to your, your hair!?”
Seeing the curious gazes, Rong Yue sighed: “Yesterday I was sick and inadvertently used Heavenly Hearing when I was unconscious. The god told me …… I’m too sad lately, if I continue like this, I’ll get white hair.”
The crowd around: “…………”
What was going on? It sounded like nonsense, but it had a wonderful convincing power!
Seeing Yue talk back to her, Yu Lian became even more angry.
She had become accustomed to bullying Yue since childhood, Yue had never resisted. He was such a person, and now he dared to talk back!
“Today is a celebration that belongs to me! I forbid you to come, and you are not allowed to eat my father’s food again!” She pointed at Yue and yelled, “From now on, you’ll only be able to eat Tian Yang’s catch! You’ll have to starve if he’s starving! Do you hear me?”
Without waiting for Yue to answer, a tall, strong man suddenly appeared behind Yu Lian and interjected, “Why is Xiao Yu here? Who’s that?”
Yu Lian’s eyes widened in aggravation, “Sen Qiang, what are you asking about him for, I’m your wife!”
The First Warrior of the Sentei Tribe narrowed his eyes at Rong Yue.
Rong Yue locked eyes with the other.
He was strong, and if he were replaced in his Continent, he could probably be a level fifty mini-boss.
In his original body, it was still manageable, but if they fought now, the level one him and the debuffed Tian Yang would definitely suffer a loss.
Just as he was cautiously assessing the strength of both sides, Sen Qiang suddenly smiled lewdly: “You’re my original wife? Quite pretty …… Come with me, I’ll take you too.”
“…… I refuse.”
Two voices sounded one after the other, and Tian Yang stood next to him, no longer playful.
“He is my deeded wife, don’t be too greedy.”
Rong Yue frowned.
He knew that, according to the rules of the tribe, Tian Yang and Sen Qiang, could fight for him.
Being forced to “marry” someone was already very strange, he didn’t want to experience the more excessive “two people serving one husband”. And Tian Yang gave him a good feeling, if he had to choose a person to partner with, he would rather choose Tian Yang.
But Tian Yang was poisoned and sick, he may not be able to overcome this problem.
This small problem of poisoning, if placed in the heyday of Rong Yue, a [divine prayer] could completely heal him.
But now …………
It didn’t matter, he could use the method of this world.
Rong Yue: “Sen Qiang?”
The strong man from the tribe next door answered and looked at him with interest.
Rong Yue smiled slightly, tilted his head and asked him: “Yesterday I had a vague premonition in my heavenly hearing, and god told me that today I will be able to measure the fortune of a destined person, without any payment. I choose you, do you need it?”
Sen Qiang narrowed his eyes and smiled lewdly: “That would be nice ……”
The main ability of the sacrifice was to measure good fortune, but there were quite a lot of instructions.
Because the “divine power” of this world had a lot of rules, each prediction would take the sacrifice’s sincere heart and soul, and it wouldn’t always be successful.
Therefore, the sacrifice was mostly for the whole tribe, few priests were willing to use the heavenly hearing for a person.
As for Yue, although he awakened to become a sacrifice, he could hardly do decent divination, but now he wanted to do one for Sen Qiang ……
Yu Lian thought that he wanted to please Sen Qiang, and her teeth clenched with anger, but she was just a wife after all, and she didn’t dare disobey her husband, so she could only glare as she stood aside.
Soon, with the help of the crowd, a simple divination table was set up.
The wooden table was a round stone plate, the inside was roughly divided into two halves, the left was painted red with flower juice, the right was just the gray stone, a handful of grass and wood ash was evenly sprinkled into the disc.
Immediately after, a little girl of four or five years old with messy hair climbed onto the table, covered the stone plate with a lid, then took two steps backward, raised her hands above her head and kowtowed three times.
This was the dust removal session before doing the heavenly hearing – according to Rong Yue’s judgment, there was no practical significance.
He reached out and picked up the little girl who had finished kowtowing, gently placed her on the ground, and smiled at her.
Then sat down solemnly on his knees on the round straw mat.
Rong Yue didn’t make any eye-catching movements, yet every move was sacred and solemn.
Before he officially started, there were no more whispers around.
“There is Sen Qiang, asking the sky to hear, is the road ahead auspicious or evil?”
His soft ethereal voice lingered, Rong Yue’s hands were against the sides of the stone plate, as he asked three times in a row.
Suddenly, a breeze brushed by.
The crowd held their breath.
Rong Yue smiled and raised his hand to make a gesture, signaling Sen Qiang to come to the front to see the result.
The crowd of people watching weren’t willing to stand still, they pretended that Rong Yue also called them, one by one, they stretched their necks closer.
