Soon, they boarded the two boats as planned.
Darryl, Yvette and Stella entered the cabin; it was not very spacious, but it was clean.
The sea was calm; there were no big waves. The gentle breeze also made them feel comfortable.
As soon as Yvette helped Darryl to sit down, Stella approached him with a few elixir pills. “Even though these pills can’t heal your injury completely, they can ease some pain.”
Stella turned around and began to boil water for tea after she gave the pills to Darryl.
“Thank you!” Darryl took the pill, and he felt an immediate pain relief as it took effect. As he felt more relaxed and happy, he began to like Stella!
The Ice Fire Island’s dignified eldest young miss had taken good care of him. It was commendable that she did not appear aloof. It was a rare character trait for those with high status!
“Miss Stella!” Yvette stood up, smiled, and said, “You don’t need to get busy. You have also been traveling, so you should rest!”
Then, Yvette helped Stella with the tea preparation.
Stella smiled plainly. “It’s okay. I don’t feel tired. I’m just making some tea!”
The two women spoke softly and were very polite to each other. They were not jealous of each other; it was a very warm scene.
Darryl felt comfortable when he saw how they interacted with each other.
‘One is an honorable princess, and the other is an eldest young miss from a prominent sect. Both of them are so kind to me. I am blessed to have them in my life.’
Moved with emotions, Darryl sat cross-legged and closed his eyes to recover his internal energy.
Darryl had received multiple injuries from the previous battle. Even though they were not fatal, they were quite severe. With Darryl’s level of cultivation, it would take about ten months to recover completely.
Darryl entered the realm of cultivation.
Yvette and Stella made tea, and when they saw Darryl in meditation, they decided not to bother him. Instead, they sat at the side and closed their eyes to get some rest.
“Nope, I’m not waiting on her anymore. She’s way too difficult!”
“I can’t take it anymore!”
Sometime later, they heard a commotion outside—it was the four Scope brothers.
Darryl opened his eyes and glanced through the cabin window. He was shocked by what he had seen.
The four Scope brothers stood on the deck on the next boat. Their faces were reddened in fury as they used the oars to approach Darryl’s boat.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
As soon as the two boats were right next to each other, the four brothers jumped onto the next deck.
The loud noises also disturbed Yvette and Stella’s rest. They woke up and immediately went to see what had happened.
Stella frowned when she saw her senior brothers had hopped onto their boat. She asked softly, “What’s the matter? Why are you here instead of taking care of the Empress in the other boat?”
“Junior Sister, the Empress has set too many rules, and she has a foul temper. We can’t do it anymore!” First Scope wiped the sweat from his forehead; he was almost speechless about the situation.
Second Scope added quickly. “Yes, the Empress treats the cabin like a palace. She told us to do so many things, and if we didn’t do a good job, she would tell us to get lost. She’s too difficult…”
Next to him, Third Scope and Fourth Scope nodded in agreement.
“She’s too critical and fussy…”
