Bai Ming guessed that Huanhuans true background was definitely not ordinary.
However, since Bai Di was unwilling to say it, Bai Ming did not want to force him.
The topic ended there.
He smiled at Huanhuan and said gently, “Thank you.
I feel much better.”
Huanhuan took out a large handful of dried shellfish grass.
“This herb can treat coughs.
If you soak it in warm water and drink two cups a day, your throat should feel much better.”
Bai Ming pointed to the table beside him.
“Just put it there.”
Huanhuan took out a lot of shellfish grass.
If he drank two cups of it every day, this amount would be able to last him for a year.
Not long after, the high priest arrived with two oracles.
Each of the three middle cities had a temple, and they were each presided over by a high priest.
The high priest of Sun City was a tall, handsome male beast.
He always had a smile on his lips.
Although he was middle-aged, he was gentle, refined, and elegant.
It was easy to like him.
His name was Wen Qian.

Wen Qian was wearing a robe made of shark silk and had a golden crystal pendant on his chest.
The pendant flowed with light.
It was crystal clear and very beautiful.
He was followed by a dozen more attendants.
Most of them stopped before entering.
Only two followed him in.
The two divine servants pressed one hand to their chests and bowed.
Wen Qian didnt need to bow.
He walked straight to the bed and looked worried.
“Your Majesty, I heard you coughed up blood again.”
Bai Di helped Bai Ming sit up.
Bai Ming said, “Dont worry.
Im already better.”
His face was still very pale, but his voice was indeed not as hoarse as before.
Wen Qian couldnt help but be surprised.
“Your condition seems to have improved a little.
Whats going on”
Bai Ming smiled and said, “Maybe the medicine you prescribed me previously worked.”
Wen Qian was skeptical.
“Is that so”
He was the one who prescribed those medicines.
Of course, he knew how effective they were.
At most, they could only nourish the body and not really treat illnesses.
Bai Ming didnt seem to hear his question.
He said gratefully, “Ive been sick for so long.
I shouldve died long ago.
Fortunately, I was able to survive until now because of your treatment!”
Wen Qian pressed a hand to his chest.
“Its all because of the gods!”
Bai Ming nodded.
“Thank you, gods.”
Wen Qian got a divine servant to bring over a bowl of medicine.
“My king, this is holy water bestowed by the gods.
If you drink it, you should be able to sleep peacefully and avoid the torture of illness.”
Bai Ming drank the holy water and quickly felt sleepy.
The attendants helped him lie down.

The others followed Wen Qian out of the bedroom.
Wen Qian looked back at Bai Di and smiled kindly.
“Its been three years since we last met.
I didnt expect your beast soul to have upgraded again.
Youre indeed a genius of the royal family of Sun City!”
Bai Di nodded.
“You flatter me, High Priest.”
“I heard you found a female mate.” Wen Qians gaze landed on the little female beside him.
He was stunned by her appearance, but then his smile became even gentler.
“This is your mate, right Shes so beautiful!”
Bai Di stroked Huanhuans head.
“Yes, her name is Huanhuan.
Shes my mate.”
Wen Qian took out a pair of earrings made of blue crystals.
“I left in a hurry this time and didnt bring anything valuable.
This pair of crystal earrings are a gift for you.
I hope you like them.”
Huanhuan took the earrings with both hands.
“Theyre very beautiful.
Thank you for your kindness.”
She thought that would be enough, but Wen Qian continued, “Put them on now.
They must suit you very well.”
Huanhuan was stunned.
“But I dont have piercings…”
“After females reach adulthood, their ears will be pierced by their relatives or elders.” Wen Qian looked at her.
“This is common sense.
Didnt your parents tell you”
Huanhuan thought to herself that there was really no such practice in the 21st century!
She replied vaguely, “My parents passed away early, so Im not sure about many things.”
My words have reminded you of something sad.”
Huanhuan shook her head.
“Its all in the past.
“Why dont I help pierce your ears” Wen Qian said with a smile.
“I watched Bai Di grow up, so Im considered half his elder.
I wont take advantage of you when I help you pierce your ears.”
Huanhuan did not expect him to make such a suggestion.
She was slightly stunned and did not know how to answer.
Bai Di spoke up to help her out.
“Huanhuan is afraid of pain.
Lets forget about the piercings.
Anyway, it doesnt matter even if she doesnt wear them.”
“But you cant wear beautiful earrings without piercings.
Dont you think its a pity”
Huanhuan quickly said, “No, no.
Im fine like this.”
Wen Qian looked regretful.
“Alright, since you insist, well do as you say.”
He paused and glanced at the blue crystal earring in Huanhuans hand.
“Its a pity that you cant wear this pair of earrings.
Why dont I give you another gift”
“Theres no need to go through so much trouble.
I can put them away and give them to my daughter when she grows up,” Huanhuan said with a smile.
“If she finds out that these are earrings from the high priest, shell be very honored!”
Her compliment clearly pleased Wen Qian.
“Youre so beautiful.
Im sure your daughter will be adorable.”
“Thank you for your praise.”
Wen Qian looked at Bai Di and suddenly asked, “You suddenly returned to Sun City.
You must have encountered some difficulties outside, right”
Bai Di said, “Theres trouble, but its not a big problem.
I can take care of it myself.”
“Although youre not related to me by blood, Ive treated you as my own child since we were young.
If you have any difficulties, you have to tell me.
Ill do my best to help you.”
Facing Wen Qians love, Bai Di replied, “Ill remember.”
“Then Ill go back first.
Remember to come to the temple often in the future.”
Bai Di nodded.
Wen Qian left with the divine servants.
When they were gone, Huanhuan turned to Bai Di and asked softly, “Dont you trust this high priest”
Bai Di didnt answer.
“How did you know”
“I can feel it.”
Although the communication between Bai Di and Wen Qian seemed very harmonious, Huanhuans sixth sense as a woman allowed her to acutely capture that something was wrong.
Wen Qian seemed to be testing Bai Di.
Bai Di remained impeccably guarded as he kept all his answers slightly vague.
If Bai Di truly trusted the high priest, he wouldnt have such an attitude.
