Chapter 257: The Sect Leader Wakes Up Grumpy Every Day (5)

This woman was extremely indifferent, ignoring them completely. At mealtime, she even managed to grab an extra steamed bun, causing envy and jealousy among the others. However, they dared not utter a word of complaint, hindered by the fact that the woman had arms much thicker than theirs.

Now they saw Liu Chunhua take the initiative to engage with the newcomer, which surprised them and also raised a faint sense of danger and alertness.

One of them couldn’t help but ask, “What do you think you’re doing, Liu?”

Another woman added hesitantly, “Are you trying to break the rules here?”

Liu Chunhua lifted her head, emitting a cold, harsh laugh. With her already fierce appearance, this laugh intimidated them all.

The six women glanced at each other, and finally, someone said, “Forget it, let’s just drop it.”

Then they each sat down, either bored enough to sleep or indulging in daydreams of escape.

In the dungeon, the prisoners repeated the same routine every day, hoping for slightly better meals and enduring the daily patrols of the guards, some of whom were indifferent, while others immediately brandished their swords at the slightest sign of trouble.

Shen Mubai was aware that beneath the seemingly calm surface, there were hidden currents at play.

The traps set by the demonic sect surrounded them, with highly skilled martial artists lurking in the shadows. At any sign of movement, they would immediately set up a net, ensuring no one could escape.

She silently nibbled on her steamed bun, wondering when this life would see any improvement. Leaving aside the challenge of how she, a prisoner, could rescue Jun Jiuling, the most pressing issue was not getting enough to eat.

It would be embarrassing if she didn’t have the strength to escape when the time came.

Shen Mubai couldn’t help but glance at Jun Jiuling across from her and then at Liu Chunhua, who was devouring half a steamed bun. The sight almost made her drop her own bun.

Liu Chunhua stared at her with eyes like bronze bells, her voice not the usual soft and gentle tone of most women but rather rough. “Why are you always staring over there?”

Then she furrowed her brows slightly.

Shen Mubai quickly changed the subject: “I’m just… curious about him.”

Liu Chunhua, hearing this, replied lightly, “Have you never seen the leader of the demonic sect?”

Shen Mubai found her question somewhat odd but couldn’t pinpoint what was wrong, so she replied, “Actually, I haven’t.”

After finishing the last bite of her bun, Liu Chunhua said casually, “Ignorant little girl.”

As she spoke, crumbs sprayed onto Shen Mubai’s face.

Shen Mubai, with a pained expression, turned away, repeatedly nodding, “I’ve just come out to the world. There’s a lot I don’t know.”

Liu Chunhua smiled mysteriously, with a hint of mockery in her voice.

Then, she fell silent.

Shen Mubai felt awkward and decided to break the silence. “Um, Chunhua, how did you end up here?”

At this, Liu Chunhua raised an eyelid. Her rough face seemed weathered, and she replied indifferently, “Snatched a boar.”

Shen Mubai stuttered, “Wh…what?”

Liu Chunhua furrowed her brows, speaking harshly, “Are you deaf?”

Shen Mubai couldn’t help but move aside, saying, “Forgive me, I’m sorry!”

Liu Chunhua smacked her lips and yawned.

Shen Mubai glanced at her nervously.

Liu Chunhua frowned at her displeasure and said, “I’m not interested in you.”

Shen Mubai edged a little closer in silence.
