“Ouch!” the woman cried out. “What was that?”
The nest had tumbled onto the ground by her feet. She gave it a kick, and it rolled about a meter away from her before hornets came launching from their nest in an angry swarm.
The two women were soon enveloped by a black shroud of buzzing insects, stinging at them madly.
“Aaaaaaaahhhh!” the two women shrieked like pigs being slaughtered.
Xu Xiyan hopped down and ran back to Huo Yunshen gleefully, the two women behind her continuing their desperate howling.
She returned the slingshot to Lu Qiancheng, then whispered something into Huo Yunshen’s ear. Huo Yunshen shook his head and let out a chuckle.

Huo Xun was in good spirits as he sat in a chair in the hall, wearing a red Tang dynasty style suit with large embroidered patterns. He received many congratulations and blessings from the guests.
