The snow fox lowered his large head in deep thought, then raised his head and looked at Leng Ruoxue. “Although I am a spirit beast, I know to be grateful. You saved me, so I am willing to acknowledge you as my master,” the snow fox said. As a proud high-level spirit beast, he would rather die than be tamed if he was forced by a human into acknowledging them as his master. However, this human had not forced him, and he actually owed her a favor now. The one thing that purple-eyed snow foxes hated the most was to owe favors.
After speaking, he initiated the contract directly, and a golden contract array appeared under the feet of the human and the beast. When the array disappeared, the contract was formally established.
Leng Ruoxue looked at the big fox in front of her speechlessly. She didn’t say that she wanted him to repay the favor. Why did he force himself upon her as well…
But what contract was that just now? Why is it another type of contract I don’t know? Who said that there were only equal contracts and master-slave contracts. Was it all a lie? Leng Ruoxue complained.
“Master, this is a soul contract. It is only available to spirit beasts with inherited memories. But few spirit beasts will actively acknowledge humans as their masters, so humans aren’t aware of the existence of this contract,” the snow fox explained, knowing what was on his master’s mind. Only if the spirit beast initiated a contract would this contract for spirit beasts with inherited memories be established, which was why humans did not know about it. Furthermore, spirit beasts that actively acknowledged their masters did not need to be tamed, which was also unknown to humans.
Soul contract? But it seems different from the one with Baby.
“What are the inherited memories you mentioned?” Leng Ruoxue asked thoughtfully. If she remembered correctly, Baby said that he knew about the contract from birth. Did that count as inherited memories?
“They are a way of inheritance that only spirit beasts with ancient, noble bloodlines have. Spirit beasts will only have part of their inherited memories at birth, and they will obtain more and more memories as they advance,” the snow fox explained.
After listening to the snow fox’s explanation, Leng Ruoxue understood. To put it simply, inherited memories were the inheritances of certain spirit beast families.
“Do you have a name?” Leng Ruoxue asked suddenly.
“I don’t have a name,” the snow fox answered. Although other spirit beasts he knew called him Purple Eyes, he didn’t consider that his name.
“I’ll call you Charm from now on then!” Leng Ruoxue said after some thought.
“Thank you, Master,” the purple-eyed snow fox replied happily.
“Charm, don’t you think you should wash?” Leng Ruoxue reminded him. She heard that purple-eyed snow foxes loved cleanliness, especially their snow-white fur, which they viewed as a treasure. To put it plainly, they were vain foxes in love with their beauty.
Charm lowered his head to look at himself and then ran away.
After a while, Charm ran back again. Leng Ruoxue looked at the snow-white fox. He was indeed very beautiful, and she could not help but admire his beauty.
His snow-white fur gleamed in the sun, looking very soft and smooth. With a body more than two-meters tall and watery amethyst-like pupils, he looked like a large plush toy. Probably no woman could refuse such a beautiful spirit beast!
“Master, may we not leave this place for the time being?” Charm asked after some thought. Since he acknowledged her as his master, he would have to leave with her, but…
“Why?” Leng Ruoxue was a little puzzled. She was here to train and would not stay in one place for too long. Moreover, she had not gone far yet because this forest was too big!
“Master, come with me.”
“Master, put away this big reptile first!” Charm pointed at that big block of ice.
“This is your trophy.” How could she snatch something away from her own beast?
“What is mine belongs to you, Master. Master, robbery in the forest is very common. No one is as kind as you,” Charm said. Master is really different, not like those hypocritical, greedy humans.
Am I kind? She did not think so. She was just more principled and would not rob casually. If she wanted to rob, she would rob from those not pleasing to the eye, such as the seventh prince.
After storing the earth lizard in a storage ring, Leng Ruoxue followed Charm to a cave, which seemed to be his home.
“Are these green spirit fruits?” Leng Ruoxue looked at the small tree half a meter tall in front of her. On the tree, there were five green fruits, each the size of a baby’s fist and obviously still not ripe.
“Yes, they are almost ripe. I’ve been guarding the tree for a long time. That big reptile tried to steal it from me, which was what started the fight,” Charm explained.
“Move it to my space!” Leng Ruoxue said. Green spirit fruits were also a heavenly material and earthly treasure, just not as good as those in her Heaven and Earth Bracelet.
Space? Charm looked at his master with bewilderment. Green spirit fruits were a great thing, useful to both humans and spirit beasts. Humans could increase their spiritual energy and spiritual beasts could advance if they ate them. However, it seemed as though his master was not very interested in them.
Heavens! What is this place? Charm was dumbfounded as he looked at the large medicinal field in front of him. Even more dumbfounding was that he didn’t recognize most of them. However, spirit beasts were very sensitive to such treasures, so he was sure that they were definitely good things, even better than the green spirit fruits he regarded as a treasure. No wonder Master wasn’t too interested in the green spirit fruits.
“This is the space I told you about. Pretty good, isn’t it?!”
“It’s more than good…” Charm did not know what to say. He could only say that his master was really abnormal.
“Big Sister, plant that little tree here!” Qing Jue pointed to an empty field. Another two fields had appeared after unlocking a seal. Moreover, Qing Jue arranged and managed everything planted.
“Okay. Has Baby woken up?” Baby became very sleepy after entering the forest, so Leng Ruoxue left him in the purple bamboo house.
“Master, he…” Charm looked at the toddler and then at his master, his fluffy face full of question marks.
“He is Qing Jue, the artifact spirit of the Heaven and Earth Bracelet. Tell him if you want to enter or exit this place from now on,” Leng Ruoxue explained.
“When the green spirit fruits are ripe, I’ll concoct them into pills for you to consume,” Leng Ruoxue added. Concocting pills would best preserve the medicinal value of heavenly materials and earthly treasures.
