Little White1The original word is “Xiao Bai” which is translated to little white. It’s a cute nickname to give to people/pets. In this case, it’s the name of the rabbit. Also, the void beast is called Xiao Ba, but I just translated it to Little Eight which is a cute nickname too. If you noticed a lot of female protagonists in Chinese novels usually have the word “Xiao” as their middle names so you can nickname them “little” whatever., Is This Wine Poisonous
The Zuili father and mother rushed over when they learned their baby girl had returned.
Nan Xun’s had yet to sit in the chair, and the door burst open by a gust of wind.
A beautiful woman rushed in and strode to Nan Xun, she hugged her and howled, “Xuan’Er, Niang’s2The mother is referring to herself in the third person. Niang = mother. good daughter, what are you doing back? You should have ran away a little farther, ah, you’re really mad at mother!”
The handsome uncle, her father, followed her mother and heard her words. He hurriedly set up a soundproof enchantment outside the house, otherwise, if the words were heard by others, they would surely suffer.
Nan Xun was surprised.
Did her father and mother know from the beginning that she dared eloped Qin Yuexuan?
Nan Xun hung her head and whispered: “Niang, if I really left, what would you and Daddy do? Anyway, it’s no use leaving the Zuili family. I might as well make some contribution for the family.”
When she heard this, her tears ran down like a flood.
Her father was also red-eyed. “Xuan’Er, father is incompetent and can’t protect you.”
Nan Xun shook her head and said with tears: “There are several elders from the Zuili family and other families that are covetous. Outsiders only see Daddy’s status as the head of the Zuili family. How can they ever know the bitterness in Daddy’s heart? So, I don’t blame father and mother, really.”
Her father, an old gentleman, couldn’t help hearing this anymore and began to howl with his wife in his arms.
Nan Xun: ……
Her mother wanted to help her escape, but she didn’t expect her to return and for Zuili Yuejian to tell the elders of her return. The elders came to see her and was at a deadlock with her father for a long time.
Finally, her father watched the elders cast a powerful isolation enchantment, that not even a fly can enter.
The title as the head of the Zuili family sounded noble, but in fact, her poor father was a mere puppet. He is an excellent puppet of the Zuili family as all the decision-making power of the most important matters are decided by several elders.
The Xuans and Demons have been fighting for about one hundred years. At first, both sides were defeated and sustained heavy injuries. However, over time, the Demons were far more resilient than the Xuan, so they decided to prolong the truce period.
Later, after the discussion between several large families, it was strategized to create an alliance.
The Zuili family is the head of the five major families. In order to show sincerity, the person naturally sent should be a member of the Zuili family. But every child within the Zuili clan is capable, and the elders were reluctant.
Therefore, all eyes fell on Zuili Xuan.
She had no skill, but was the daughter of the Zuili clan, extraordinarily beautiful, the entire Zuili family couldn’t find a more qualified candidate than her.
In a blink of an eye, Nan Xun was left alone along with the long-eared rabbit within her arms.
Perhaps the long-eared rabbit’s presence was nearly non-existent since no one noticed it this entire time.
Nan Xun tried to contact the void beast, but the little thing didn’t respond at all and she didn’t know what had happened.
So, Nan Xun can only chat with the long-eared rabbit.
Nan Xun ate at the same table with the long-eared rabbit and slept holding the long-eared rabbit for the past two days.
On this day, Nan Xun was lying on a rocking chair with the rabbit in her arms, looking at the stars in the night sky.
“Little White, I really want to drink. When I get drunk, I don’t have any worries.” Nan Xun muttered, rubbing the ears of the long-eared rabbit.
Even when its ears were ravaged, the rabbit’s response is faint. It looked sideways at the table next to it, and there was a flash of blood in its bright red eyes.
In the next moment, Nan Xun pointed at the table and exclaimed.
“Wine? How can there be a jug of wine there?” Nan Xun stared at the small table in front of her, and almost stared a hole into it.
At last, Nan Xun determined that she was blind and that there is a jug of wine on the table.
Nan Xun hesitated for a long time and asked the long-eared rabbit, “Little White, do you think this wine is poisonous?”
The long-eared rabbit glanced at her without any expression.
