Lin Yuan instinctively touched his pocket.
This was when he realized that his clothes had been changed an unknown amount of time ago.
Instead of his original moon-white spirit qi clothes, he was now wearing moon-white lounge clothes similar to what he and the Moon Empress wore on a daily basis.
Lin Yuan was about to look for his phone when he suddenly remembered the Mother of Bloodbath had taken his phone before he was sucked into the dimensional rift.
Lin Yuan hurriedly turned to Chu Ci and asked, “Chu Ci, lend me your phone. I need to make a call.”
When Chu Ci saw the look of worry on Lin Yuan’s face, she quickly handed him her phone.
Seeing how worried he is, could something urgent have happened?
Before he had lost consciousness, Lin Yuan had treated Liu Jie’s injuries, but Lin Yuan was unsure if Liu Jie’s mental state had been affected by the purplish-gray poison.
During the seven days that he had been in a coma, the Insect Queen’s transformation must be almost completed.
Lin Yuan was also rather concerned about Zhou Luo.
However, Zhou Luo’s life was not in danger.
Since Zhou Luo had taken an oath to Lin Yuan under the Willpower Rune, Lin Yuan was certain that Zhou Luo was still alive.
Lin Yuan received Chu Ci’s phone and was about to call when he realized that Chu Ci did not have Liu Jie’s number.
Lin Yuan did not have the habit of memorizing phone numbers, so he circulated his spiritual energy to summon Genius.
Lin Yuan asked Genius, “Genius, what’s Big Brother Liu’s phone number?”
Genius had evolved into the Thousand Questions Beast and was not what it used to be.
Not only had it retained all its abilities as a housekeeping beast, but it was also even stronger now.
Genius answered in a child-like voice, “1...”
Genius hopped into Lin Yuan’s embrace, its tiny claws digging into Lin Yuan’s neck.
Genius had turned into a mask for Lin Yuan when they were in the dimensional rift.
Thus, Genius and Lin Yuan had shared the same view of everything in the dimensional rift.
Genius had watched with fright as the flesh of Lin Yuan’s hands was stripped by the dimensional fluctuations.
However, Genius had been unable to do anything other than watch.
Lin Yuan had comforted Genius in the spiritual world, but it was still anxious over Lin Yuan after being summoned.
When Lin Yuan saw how worried Genius was, he stroked Genius’ three tails and was about to massage Genius’ furry neck when he saw Genius raise its head to look at him.
Tears were welling up in Genius’s eyes, but it spoke with utter solemnity. “I want to be stronger, Yuan! I want to help you!”
Lin Yuan smiled and stroked Genius’ head.
“Genius has always been helping me. Knowledge is power. You’re amazing!”
Genius swiped its claws at the air before replying, “Genius is as powerful as a plate of roasted meat. I’ll do my best to become as powerful as 100 plates of roasted meat!”
Genius stretched out its claws and waved it in front of Lin Yuan.
Lin Yuan pinched Genius’ claws that were moving about in the air and touched the soft pads underneath its claws. He shook the claws twice before hooking his finger around Genius’s claws.
“Then we have a deal. I can’t wait till Genius becomes as powerful as 100 plates of roasted meat!”
Genius’ brilliant blue eyes shone, and the corners of its eyes were still damp.
Genius’ small face spread into a human-like grin.
Before Genius could respond, Chu Ci dashed in.
Chu Ci scooped Genius into her arms and started to stroke Genius’ fur with practiced ease.
Chu Ci’s actions immediately had Genius purring contentedly.
“Did you miss me, Little Genius?”
Chu Ci took a few pieces of meat out of the fey storage box Lin Yuan had gifted her and held the fragrant morsels up to Genius’ mouth.
In the time that Lin Yuan had been in a coma, Genius had not had any appetite for food.
Most of the Cane Luffa in the Spirit Lock spatial zone had ripened and fallen to the ground during the seven days.
Genius had been so worried about Lin Yuan that it had not thought about food at all.
But now that it took a whiff of the meat in Chu Ci’s hand, Genius’ stomach immediately started to gurgle.
Genius said in a child-like voice instead of eating the meat, “Genius missed Chu Ci so much! I missed you as much as 1,000 pieces of roasted meat!”
Lin Yuan raised his eyebrow at Genius’ words.
Genius had always been beloved everywhere it went. Even a middle-aged uncle like Hu Quan enjoyed hugging Genius at every opportunity.
Lin Yuan finally understood why.
At that moment, Lin Yuan’s call to Liu Jie went through.
Lin Yuan rushed to ask, “How are you recovering, Big Brother Liu?”
Liu Jie did not answer Lin Yuan’s question. He could not help but take over the conversation and ask, “How are you, Lin Yuan?”
Liu Jie still had more to say, but Lin Yuan heard Wen Yu’s voice on the other end say, “Big Brother Liu, is the call from Young Master? Why didn’t you say anything? Has his body recovered?”
Lin Yuan heard Wen Yu’s voice increase in volume by several times.
“All of you come here! Young Master is calling!”
Less than half a minute later, Lin Yuan heard Endless Summer, Hu Quan, the Mother of Bloodbath, Listen, and Zhou Luo’s voices.
Their tones were urgent as they anxiously questioned his condition.
A tinge of warmth crept over Lin Yuan’s heart.
When the cacophony of voices died down, and after some idle chatter, Lin Yuan said, “I’ll be going back tomorrow. It’s going to be New Year’s in two days. We should make preparations together!”
Lin Yuan was really looking forward to this year’s New Year’s celebrations.
Last year, Lin Yuan had spent New Year’s with Chu Ci in the Xia Region.
This year, both Lin Yuan and Chu Ci had embarked on a new chapter of their lives and had amassed many caring companions.
After saying that, Lin Yuan was about to ask if Liu Jie’s Insect Queen had finished transforming.
Liu Jie said, “Lin Yuan, I just received word from the Radiance Sacred Hall that the Chief Guard of the Spirit Guards wants to see me!”
Now that he knew Liu Jie was busy, Lin Yuan did not ask about the Insect Queen’s transformation.
Lin Yuan was going to return to the mansion tomorrow anyway. If there were any issues with the Insect Queen, Lin Yuan could use True Data then to check.
The moment he hung up, an ethereal and strangely crisp spiritual voice called out once again from the depths of Lin Yuan’s soul.
