To my dear readers,
Firstly, I would like to thank Pauline Ngo for her donation! Donations really motivates me to work harder. (When people give me money, I feel like I have to hurry up and not let them down)
In addition, I plan to finish this novel before the year ends. This means that I have to translate roughly 11-12 chapters per month from now on. My version has 89 chapters. I must discipline myself to hit my goal! (Feel free to support me)
And lastly, I am going to stop the Chinese lessons for now because I am stressed. Maybe I will resume in November. Sorry. If you really want to learn very badly, message me the word or phrase and I will personally respond back to you.

Now that they have an idea of where to go, they could ignore a lot of other paths and focus on their targetted direction. In order to maximize their efforts of finding the Princess, Lian Feng decided to disband his group. He wanted his subordinates to contact others around the black forest to form small teams as they all head towards the same direction. As for him and Lin Shan, they will be the first to go in for the search with the help of Wu Ying.
Based on the old couple’s descriptions, Du Ming Yue left two to three days ago. However, since the terrain of the black forest was unusual and it was filled with numerous plants, Du Ming Yue most likely wouldn’t be too far off.
As expected, Lian Feng and Lin Shan found some clues after searching for a day. One of the clues was a torn piece of yellow fabric. The material obviously came from the Palace. Lin Shan was positive that Du Ming Yue was nearby.
But by the third day, they had less than a day remaining from the ten days they were initially given. If they could not find Du Ming Yue by noon tomorrow, they will have to retreat from the forest and report back to the Palace. Time was getting tight, and the hope that Lin Shan had was diminishing.
