The Hero Turned Into A Potato And The World Fell To Ruin Chapter 4: Buried In The Ground, Covered In Soil

Liu Ji no longer knew how long he had been a potato for.

Years… Uh, no, it couldn't be that short.

Perhaps several decades? Uh, possibly several centuries or a millennium?

Ahh… I don't know.

Once Liu Ji accepted the fact that he was a potato, everything started to seem natural.
