Ah Jin woke up sitting cross-legged in bed by herself in meditation.
The original character had been practicing internal energy all night.
Ah Jin did not care about the situation around her.
The first thing she did was to look around for San Qi.
"San Qi? San Qi?"
Ah Jin called out in her mind.
San Qi's muffled voice came from behind her.
Ah Jin reached back and felt for it.
She found something soft behind her buttocks.
Ah Jin saw a helpless San Qi and asked, "What's wrong with you? Stand properly."
If Ah Jin didn't ask, it was fine.
Once she asked San Qi, San Qi became even more annoyed.
"It's because you insisted on pulling me here! This is my physical body. Do you know how much energy it took for me to keep my body? Oooh … My energy ..."
Ah Jin stroked the bird's head soothingly and said, "You can make more energy if you lose it. Don't be so depressed. Energy is for spending, right?"
San Qi could not believe what it was hearing.
What kind of face was this person using to say such things?
Ah Jin stuffed San Qi into her sleeve.
She began to accept the memories of the original character.
They were now away on an outdoor experience training.
That was the time when the turning point happened.
She surveyed the surrounding environment.
Simple tables, chairs, and beds.
She was probably in an inn.
She grabbed her stuff, and according to her memory, located the second junior brother's room. She knocked on his door.
The second junior brother was surprised to see that it was his eldest senior sister at the door.
The eldest senior sister had always been the most diligent.
Why was she so early today?
"Eldest senior sister, what can I do for you?”
Ah Jin did not forget to maintain her persona.
She said with a cold face, "The market. Want to go and see?"
The second junior brother was even more surprised.
‘D*mn it! Eldest senior sister actually wanted to go out to play!’
Ah Jin looked at his shocked expression.
She added, "Going to see the people’s s situation."
The second junior brother then breathed a sigh of relief.
He thought that the eldest senior sister had become enlightened.
"Do you want to call the others?"
"No. We'll just go and take a look."
The second junior brother went back to his room to get his outer robe and stuff.
Then they left the inn and went straight to the market.
Apart from the merchants with their stalls, there were also people from various sects of Jianghu.
Everyone was dressed sharply and ably attire, either with a sword or a knife at their waists.
There were also people wearing hats moving quickly through the marketplace.
Ah Jin took her second junior brother around the corner and quickly found a bird store.
The store was filled with a variety of colorful birds.
Ah Jin chose a small yellow bird that most resembled San Qi and paid for it.
The merchant was quite good.
She gave her a complimentary birdcage.
Ah Jin came out with the birdcage.
The second junior brother looked at her suspiciously as if asking what she bought the bird for.
Ah Jin did not explain.
She just stretched out a finger and pointed to the sky.
The second junior brother followed her finger and looked up at the sky.
Nothing was there.
At that instant, Ah Jin seized the chance, grabbed the bird in the cage, threw it away, and then threw San Qi in.
It was a set of movements that flowed smoothly.
The second junior brother looked down at Ah Jin, "Eldest senior sister, I didn't see anything in the sky. Was there something just now?"
Ah Jin looked as usual, "I saw it wrong. Let's go back."
The second junior brother examined the little yellow bird in the birdcage.
A moment ago, it was still jumping around, but now it was lying on its back.
It looked like it was dying inside the cage.
"What's wrong with it? A moment ago, it was very energetic. Eldest senior sister, look at that expression on its face. It looks just like a human. This bird is such an intelligent creature."
Ah Jin said without changing her expression, "Maybe it’s hungry."
San Qi was lying on its back in the cage, shutting itself up.
In its mind, it cursed Ah Jin, "You're the hungry one! Your whole family is hungry!"
Ah Jin, "You don't want to live anymore?"
San Qi, "..."
Birdlife is hard. Could this life still be lived?
Although the second junior brother was curious, he was not surprised.
The eldest senior sister often bought all kinds of strange things to give away to people.
He was already accustomed to it, but this was the first time she bought a living thing.
When the two arrived back at the inn, other people had already gathered in the hall to drink tea.
Gu Qingmei saw Ah Jin carrying a birdcage back and curiously came forward.
"What a cute little bird. Eldest senior sister, did you buy it as a gift for master?"
Ah Jin put down the black cloth on the birdcage to block her view.
Coldly returned a sentence, "What's it to you?"
It was the first time Gu Qingmei was treated with such dislike by her eldest senior sister.
She was a bit aggrieved, and her eyes reddened.
"I'm just asking. Why are you so aggressive?"
After saying that, she stomped her foot and ran back to her room.
When the others saw this, they sent a signal to the second junior brother standing behind Ah Jin.
'What's wrong with eldest senior sister? Not in a good mood?'
The second junior brother replied with a wink.
'No. She was fine just now.'
Ah Jin stood between them and blocked their eye contact.
"Just say what you have to say. What's the point of keeping your mouth shut?"
The third junior brother clenched his fist with one hand.
He coughed dryly to cover his embarrassment.
"Ahem. Eldest Senior Sister, are you in a bad mood?"
The fourth junior brother then said, "Did junior sister do something wrong?"
The men were puzzled.
"Then why did you get angry just now?"
They had all grown up together.
The eldest senior sister had taken care of them since they were young.
They were familiar with some of her emotions.
Although she was usually serious and cold, they still knew if she was angry or not.
"She's too willful. It's time to grow up."
The crowd did not say anything.
She was the eldest senior sister.
She had the final say.
Gu Qingmei was the youngest one and the last one to join them.
Unlike the friendship they grew up with, the junior sister was already ten years old when she was admitted.
Although they had been together for six or seven years, they still trusted the eldest senior sister who had "raised" them.
They started to discuss where they should go next.
Someone said he wanted to take a job as a bodyguard.
One said that there was a rumor that there were bandits around Pingyang City and wanted to fight them.
Finally, Ah Jin tapped the table and said they would escort people to Pingyang City.
They could both escort the people and fight the bandits.
The second junior brother went to the Escort Agency while the rest of the group packed their bags and were ready to go.
Regarding the angry junior sister, the two remaining brothers looked at each other.
Though the junior sister was gentle and lovely, she was very unreasonable when she was angry.
It should be said that women were all unreasonable when they got angry.
Two people voted and tossed a coin.
In the end, the fourth junior brother won.
The third junior brother went to inform the junior sister.
With a bitter face, he reluctantly knocked on her door.
Gu Qingmei found him when she opened the door, her face eased up.
"Third senior brother."
The third junior brother scratched his head, saying, "I've come to inform you that we are going to do a mission later. We have agreed to escort people to Pingyang City and fight bandits on the way."
"Yes, I understand. Is there anything else?"
"Eldest senior sister told us to pack our bags and be prepared to leave at any time. And ah, eldest senior sister did it for your own good. Don't be angry."
Gu Qingmei dried the teardrops at the corner of her eyes, and she promised in a delicate voice,
"I know. I must have done something wrong. That's why eldest senior sister spoke of me like that. I won't be angry."
The third junior brother was relieved to hear her say so.
"In that case, come down quickly."
After saying that, he flew downstairs as if he was running for his life.
