The crowd looked towards the door. There stood a tall woman who was wearing a hat and a heavy cloak on her body.
On her shoulders stood a small yellow bird, looking at their table with its round bird eyes.
The fourth junior brother saw that San Qi's eyes were glowing.
A cold wind blew in from outside the door. The cloak swayed with the wind, revealing the sword worn by the woman's waist. When the people saw the sword, they stood up in surprise. They were filled with joy.
Ah Jin took off the hat, her lips turned into a smile.
"What? You don't recognize me?"
"Eldest senior sister!"
"Eldest senior sister!"
"Senior sister Yao!"
Meanwhile, when Xiao Er heard the sound of the bell on the door, he also rushed out anxiously.
"Guest, please come inside!"
The group surrounded Ah Jin and asked her about her experience.
When Gu Qingmei saw that Yao Jin was safe and sound, she was also shocked in her heart.
How could it be? Why was she okay?
Ah Jin looked at Gu Qingmei and asked, "Junior sister, you don't seem to be very happy to see me."
Gu Qingmei's eyes flickered, and she took Ah Jin's hand and said, "Not at all, I was worried sick about you! You didn't think to send a letter so that we could rest assured."
Gu Qingmei touched her pulse and found that it was strong and without any trace of injury.
Ah Jin pushed her hand away and said to the group of fellow disciples, "Sorry for making you all worry."
The fourth senior brother smiled and scratched his head.
"It's good that senior sister is back! We're fine!"
"Yes, I knew eldest senior sister would be fine. Some people have never thought good of you."
The third junior brother still did not forget to stab Gu Qingmei at that moment.
Gu Qingmei's cheeks blushed. She pointed at the third junior brother and said, "Third senior brother, you don't have to go too far! I'm just worried about eldest senior sister."
The second senior brother saw that the war was about to start again and quickly interceded.
"All right, all right, now that eldest senior sister is back, don't say anything."
Thus, the two had a truce and ignored each other.
Ah Jin pulled out a purse from her sleeve and handed it to Gu Qingmei.
"Junior sister, here you can have this purse back. I found it to be good. It works well."
Gu Qingmei's face turned from red to white. She suppressed the panic in her heart and said, "If it works well, I, I'll make it for you next time."
"No need. Next time I may not have the blessing to enjoy it."
Gu Qingmei's face turned pale.
"Eldest senior sister, I, I don't understand what you mean."
Ah Jin stopped talking and walked into the inn and began to tell them about her experiences along the way.
Gu Qingmei was behind, looking at Ah Jin surrounded by people, her face turned white to blue.
As long as she was there, she would be ignored entirely.
Why? They all grew up together. Why should people be treated differently? Why couldn’t they see more of themselves? Just because she was the eldest senior sister?
Ah Jin felt the burning gaze behind her, and San Qi tacitly looked back.
Gu Qingmei and San Qi's dark eyes instantly locked together. Gu Qingmei hastily put away her expression and replaced it with a pure and lovely look.
San Qi turned back and said to Ah Jin in its heart.
"This woman changes her face really fast."
"If she didn't have several tricks up her sleeve, she would have been killed by the original character. Where else could it be our turn to appear."
Gu Qingmei looked at the small yellow bird on her shoulder and was stunned for a moment. She was pretending to be silly to a bird for what?
Could it be that she was guilty by association and even Yao Jin's bird she was afraid of?
She quickly pushed this thought out of her mind. Such ideas of extinguishing one's own morale and raising the prestige of others should never be allowed.
