Chapter 1943 Purely curious
“What is it?” Elder Gong asked with a light chuckle after drinking a sip of tea.
Ye Wanwan turned it over in her mind for almost a minute before gritting her teeth and brazenly asking, “It’s nothing really, Master, I was just purely curious. I accepted an S-rank mission and it involved obtaining Lord Asura’s hair. Say, Master, who’s so bored that they’d want someone’s hair and set this mission as an S-rank mission…?”
Elder Gong glanced at Ye Wanwan and seriously answered, “If it was a normal person’s hair, it wouldn’t be qualified to be a D-rank mission, let alone an S-rank mission. However, is Lord Asura someone easily trifled with? The mere act of obtaining a strand of his hair might lead to your clan’s destruction in a worst-case scenario.”
“Then… Master, do you know who issued this mission…? Can you look into it?” Ye Wanwan asked.
“Why are you asking this?” Elder Gong furrowed his brows immediately.
“I’m curious… I’m purely curious!” Ye Wanwan promptly responded.
“Curious? Are you trying to deceive me like I’m a three-year-old?” Elder Gong’s expression darkened instantly. Wasn’t this excuse too clumsy?
Ye Wanwan thought for a moment, her eyes rolling before she looked at Elder Gong with a pout. She crafted a tale that was half true and half false. “Actually, Master… I’ve obtained Lord Asura’s hair already, but I don’t know who issued this mission and why they want Lord Asura’s hair. Think about it, Master—what if the mission poster had ill intentions and will harm Lord Asura after obtaining his hair? At that time, the entire Asura would hunt me down like crazy, so I don’t dare to submit this mission…”
“What? You obtained Lord Asura’s hair?”
Elder Gong was surprised. She finished an S-rank mission in a few days?
Yes, that’s right.” Ye Wanwan bobbed her head. “But I’m too afraid to submit the mission. Master, you also know how it’s all demons and devils in Asura. I’m scared.”
“Ay…” Elder Gong shook his head and sighed softly.
Elder Gong was silent for a while before finally answering, “In truth, Wanwan, you don’t need to be afraid. It was your Senior Sister Worriless who issued this mission back then.”
Ye Wanwan was flabbergasted and incredulous when she heard that.
Who issued it?
In other words, it was the pre-amnesia me who issued the S-rank mission of obtaining Lord Asura’s hair?!
Isn’t… isn’t this too melodramatic?! Why did I want Lord Asura’s hair?
“Your Senior Sister Wordless fell in love with a man when she was still in the Independent State and had a child with him, but your Senior Sister Wordless didn’t know that man’s true identity. That man claimed to be a minor leader in Asura, but your Senior Sister Worriless suspected that man’s true identity to be Lord Asura of Asura…” Elder Gong slowly reiterated the story.
“Um, why didn’t Senior Sister Worriless ask him herself outright?” Ye Wanwan hastily asked.
Your Senior Sister Worriless had an extremely headstrong personality. After she discovered she was pregnant, she never sought out that man again and broke all ties with him. With your Senior Sister Worriless1 personality, why would she be willing to contact a man who was unwilling to even reveal his own identity, let alone ask him directly?” Elder Gong said.
If that was the case… Si Yehan also didn’t seem to know she was Worriless Nie, so didn’t that mean she also concealed her own identity?
