Chapter 803: Stealing a bite of the Forbidden Fruit
Since it was a Women’s Kingdom, it reminded Xiao Luo of the scenarios that happened in the Women’s Kingdom of the Journey to the West. Walking along the streets, Xiao Luo blended in somewhat because many of the women looked like men too. The way they spoke was quite manly, and they sounded just like men.
“Screw her grandpa duck. Look at that woman. Luckily, she does not have a beard. Or else I would have thought she was a man. If you look under her armpit, you will notice how thick her armpit hair is. She has more hair under her armpit than on her head.”
Duck Emperor saw the buff-looking woman walk past and could not help commenting. “I can even smell her body odor from such a distance away. Disgusting. It is way too disgusting. Little girl, come. Let me smell the fragrance on your body to dispel the poison.”
Duck Emperor slipped right into Ghost’s pocket and felt better after taking a whiff of her fragrant smell.
“Ah, she smells bad!” Ghost pinched her nose.
Xiao Luo thought the woman was smelly as well. She smelt so awful that it was better to walk in the opposite direction of the woman.
After walking hundreds of meters, they arrived at a pond filled with lotus flowers.
“Both of you wait here. I will fly up into the air and look for the teleportation portal,” Xiao Luo said.
“Do you even need to check? I am sure it is at the Royal Palace,” Duck Emperor said.
Xiao Luo said nothing and only glared at him. Like the wind, he disappeared and flew into the air about hundreds of meters high. At that altitude, he could look at the Baiyue Nation beneath him. All the pedestrians looked just like ants. But what had surprised him was that he could not see the borders. From what he saw, the entire area belonged to the Baiyue Nation.
“I cannot believe the area of land for a nation filled with women could be this vast,” he muttered to himself.
After he commented, Xiao Luo headed straight toward the heartland of Baiyue Nation. It was a Royal Palace and looked just like the Forbidden City. The golden glazed tiles were exceptionally dazzling. There was also an open hall with a waterside pavilion, mountains of rocks, and a bamboo vineyard.
After looking at the entire area for a while, he still could not spot the teleportation portal at all!
There could only be two possibilities. Either the Baiyue Nation was hiding it on purpose, or perhaps an object was blocking it from his line of sight. It seemed like his method was not working. He would need to ask around for information.
He quickly flew back with that thought in mind.
When he landed on the ground, he noticed Ghost and Duck Emperor eating some strange fruit. It was in the shape of an apple, and the skin color was like a cherry. It looked very delicious.
“What are you guys eating?”
Xiao Luo furrowed his brows. They were eating something they did not even know. Were they not worried it might be poisonous?
Ghost added, “Senior Luoluo, do you want to have a bite? It tastes so good.”
“Where did you get it from?” asked Xiao Luo. The look on his face changed a little.
“Duckling picked it off from the tree over there,” Ghost answered, pointing at the tree beside the pond.
Xiao Luo looked at the tree, and there was indeed a bunch of fruits growing on it. The fruits looked just like the ones which Ghost and Duck Emperor were munching.
“How can you randomly eat anything you find? Throw it away!”
He walked right up and slapped away the remaining fruit in Ghost’s hand. He stared at Duck Emperor and said, “And yours too.”
“What is wrong? It is just a fruit,” complained Duck Emperor. Then, he quickly put the remaining fruit into his mouth and swallowed it into his stomach.
“Do you know what fruit this is? What are you going to do if you get poisoned after eating it?” Xiao Luo said, looking very annoyed.
“I just asked. This fruit is not poisonous. We can eat it.”
Duck Emperor retorted, “Besides, did you not notice that there was a slight bit of fragrance in the air in this nation? They are from these fruits, which is why they taste so good. I have already eaten three of them.”
“Did you ask someone? For real?” Xiao Luo asked Duck Emperor a little doubtfully.
Duck Emperor said, “Yes, we did. It was Ghost who asked around. They told her this is the forbidden fruit. If we did not ask what the fruit was, we would never eat it.”
It surprised Xiao Luo when he heard what Duck Emperor said. The forbidden fruit was the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. It was the tree in the Garden of Eden from the Bible. The punishment for taking a bite of the forbidden fruit was severe. Could there have been any other reason they called it the Forbidden Fruit?
“Senior Luoluo, it should be fine. Right?” Ghost asked when she noticed Xiao Luo looking concerned.
“We just ate a couple of fruits. What can happen to us? At our high cultivation level, even if it is poisonous, we can suppress it easily. Little girl, do not worry,” said Duck Emperor as he reassured Ghost. He was unconcerned and was even thinking of eating a few more fruits. The forbidden fruit was very delicious and tasted so much better than any fruit he had ever eaten.
“You do not know sh*t!”
Xiao Luo reprimanded the duck, and added, “You went to the market as well. There are so many stalls selling fruits, yet none of them sold the forbidden fruit. It tastes so delicious, and yet no one sells it at the market. Yet, one can pick it off the tree and eat it just like that. Is it not enough to show you how unusual this forbidden fruit is?”
When he listened to Xiao Luo, Duck Emperor panicked a little, but he still argued his point. “Maybe… maybe there are just so many forbidden fruits, and it is just too ordinary. Look around this pond. There are dozens of forbidden fruit trees, and there is an abundant supply of it…”
“I hope that is the case,” Xiao Luo sneered.
“Senior Luoluo, surely these forbidden fruits are not poisonous. Right?” Ghost was getting more worried.
“It is not whether they are poisonous. I suspect the women in Baiyue Nation consume the forbidden fruit to get pregnant,” Xiao Luo answered.
After he said that, Ghost and Duck Emperor’s hearts beat a little faster.
“God-damn brat, you better not scare me. You said the women got pregnant from drinking the water from the Zimu River, not from eating any fruit,” Duck Emperor said.
“I just said there is a possibility a Zimu River might exist. I never said it exists for sure. Who knows? It could be the people at Baiyue Nation consume the forbidden fruit to get pregnant,” Xiao Luo replied.
Like a bolt of lightning, Duck Emperor sat right down on the ground and opened his eyes wide. That was right. Why did he not think of it? Though he might be a duck from the Dimension of Chaos, he was still quite familiar with the Original World. Considering his knowledge, he could be a half-being of the Original World. He knew the meaning behind a forbidden fruit. If Xiao Luo’s assumption was correct, the forbidden fruit might be the fruit that made one pregnant.
“Screw his grandpa duck. I cannot believe my ability to resist temptation is so low,” Duck Emperor mumbled, secretly blaming himself.
“Does pregnant mean I am going to have a baby?” Ghost asked Xiao Luo.
Xiao Luo nodded his head and uttered, “Mm-hm.”
“No way, no way. I do not want to have a baby. Giving birth is very painful,” blurted Ghost.
Ghost worried at the prospect of being pregnant. She had seen women giving birth back at the Dark Castle and watched how they screamed their lungs out in pain. Giving birth was a severely painful experience. There was no way she wanted to go through the pain.
Xiao Luo kept quiet. He only hoped his assumption was wrong and the forbidden fruit was not like the water from the Zimu river, but just an ordinary fruit—not one that could make a person pregnant.
However, hope was only wishful thinking, and reality could be cruel.
Duck Emperor, who ate most of the forbidden fruit, felt something going on right then.
“Pain… ouch! My belly hurts… my belly hurts so much,” Duck Emperor cried as he rolled on the ground.
“Me too… my stomach is hurting.”
Right after Duck Emperor, Ghost could feel cramping pain in her abdomen.
What the hell!
Xiao Luo could not help but curse silently.
