“Put this thing away yourself.”
Shen Xiaoxiao looked at the Ghost Axe in Yan Kuan’s hand in surprise. She thought that Yan Kuan had already replaced the fake one for the man in black. Why was it still here?
“The Black Ganoderma is real, but this Ghost Axe is not. After all, this thing is made of gold. Although I don’t know why this thing made of gold is called a Ghost Axe and why it is pure gold.”
Yan Kuan’s words were naturally what Shen Xiaoxiao had been wondering all along. However, when she looked at the key that symbolized the inheritance of the Shen family, she still felt a sense of sorrow.
In her previous life, Gu Yuehua and the Pei family had tried every possible means to obtain this thing. However, in the end, they were thrown into the cesspit by her.
In this life, she had tried every possible means to get this thing back from Pei Dongguo. Before she could even warm it up, it was taken away by the man in black. Now, she had once again regained it. She knew that this was a hot potato, and it was also something that she could not refuse.
“I have thought about this for a long time. It is indeed extremely dangerous to put it on you. However, based on where you hid it, I also believe in it. Moreover, from now on, I will not leave you even half a step. Naturally, your safety will be personally guaranteed by me.”
After Yan Kuan finished speaking, he kept looking at Shen Xiaoxiao. At this moment, Shen Xiaoxiao’s thoughts had already drifted overseas. She suddenly began to realize… What exactly was in the so-called inheritance of the Shen family that Pei Dongguo and the later Ouyang Tian could not wait to get their hands on? And what about the man in black? He had used a big move earlier to trick Yan Kuan with a fake version of herself for this thing. What exactly were they looking for?
Seeing that Shen Xiaoxiao was in a daze, Yan Kuan naturally asked. Shen Xiaoxiao thought for a moment and said, “I want to take a trip back to the country to take a look.”
“You want to go to your ancestral home? But the Black Ganoderma is not there.”
“I know that the Black Ganoderma is not there. I want to go to our old home to take a look. What exactly do these people want? Is it really some treasure passed down from the Ming dynasty? I don’t think so. The man in black does not need money. Otherwise, he would not support Dongyou Country.”
However, he definitely had more than one Dongyou Country under him. There were so many things that could create wealth for him. Oh right, there were also those treasures of the Ouyang family that he mentioned earlier. These things could clearly be obtained by him… There was no need for him to covet those things of her Shen family, right? “This is very strange. I feel that there must be something in our ancestral residence, and that is what the man in black wants the most.”
Yan Kuan had long known Shen Xiaoxiao’s guess. He had even guessed half of the man in black’s identity because of this guess. However, he still needed to verify some things. After all, this news was unimaginable to him, let alone Shen Xiaoxiao.
“There is indeed something that the man in black wants in your Shen family’s secret inheritance fund.”
Shen Xiaoxiao did not expect Yan Kuan to know about it. She immediately became curious. What exactly was it?
“What is it?”
“Yin-Yang Fruit? What is that?”
This was the first time that Shen Xiaoxiao had heard of this thing. What exactly was it?
Yan Kuan pulled Shen Xiaoxiao to sit on the sofa and told her what he knew in detail.
“It is said that as long as you obtain the ‘Yin-Yang Fruit’, ‘Suoyin flower’, and ‘Black Ganoderma’, you will be able to live forever and be immune to all poisons. I believe that the man in black’s target is this Yin-Yang Fruit. And your Shen family happens to be the owner of the last Yin-Yang Fruit in this world.”
“What? Live forever? Eternal youth? Are you telling a fairy tale?”
Shen Xiaoxiao did not expect Yan Kuan to say such an unbelievable thing. However, Yan Kuan’s expression did not have the slightest hint of him joking. For a moment, Shen Xiaoxiao did not know what to do.
“Is what you said true?”
Yan Kuan nodded and said, “Of course it’s true. Don’t forget that the Ouyang family has a thousand years of heritage. Is there anything strange? Just the Nine-Tailed Snake that I saw back then is definitely not an ordinary thing, let alone this Suoyin flower.”
“It’s not what you think. It’s a real plant. This thing is very lewd. Remember when I told you about those disgusting things I encountered? This Suoyin flower is something that looks like a clam after it dies.”
“The man in black wants to live forever? To be young forever?”
“He definitely wants to, but this poison is invulnerable. The most important thing is to cure all the poison in the world. In other words, our previous guess was right. The man in black really wants to save people.”
“Do you still remember that bottle of blood sample we took from that base?”
“Yeah. Has that blood sample been tested?”
“Yeah, guess who that person is?”
Let Shen Xiaoxiao guess? At first, Shen Xiaoxiao thought that it was Yan Kuan’s biological father, but now that Yan Kuan said that, it was definitely not his father. Then who was it? Could it be?
“Could it be someone from the Ouyang family?”
“Hahaha, little thing, you are indeed smart. That’s right, that person is from the Ouyang family. However, all the DNA samples of the Ouyang family, including Ouyang Tian, do not have any information about this person. However, the Ouyang family’s genes are in the blood. In other words, that person is a real person, not a clone. Of course, it also means that the person’s age is definitely higher than Ouyang Tian, or even someone from the Ouyang family who has already died.”
“Ah? Why am I getting more and more confused? Are you saying that that person is a member of the Ouyang family who has already died?”
“Yes, that’s what I mean. Is that person a member of the Ouyang family, or a member of the Ouyang family who has already died?”
This time, Shen Xiaoxiao did not know how to guess at all. A member of the Ouyang family who had died, which meant that the person had already been crossed off the family tree. However, this person was older than Ouyang Tian, even older than any of the current members of the Ouyang family. Then, who was this person?
“The oldest person in the Ouyang family is already 98 years old. In other words, that person’s age is at least over 98 years old.”
“And his blood indeed contains the Suoyin flower. The only surprising thing is that the poison in the Suoyin flower in his body has already exceeded nearly 50 years.”
“Exceeded 50 years? Didn’t you say that the Suoyin flower can only last for 30 years?”
“Yes, that’s indeed the case, so I’m even more certain that he can do everything he can to keep a person alive for 50 years. As expected, the person the man in black wants to save is him.”
“Since the person the man in black wants to save is him, what does this have to do with kidnapping our children?”
This should be the first time that Shen Xiaoxiao subconsciously said the words ‘our children’. She did not even realize it herself, but Yan Kuan was secretly delighted. This woman was stubborn on the surface… It was not impossible for her heart to have some thoughts.
“Have you forgotten that I have a relationship with Ouyang Jinling? Perhaps it has to be traced back to Ouyang Jinling’s blood….
