Chapter 209 – You Can Do It!
Back then, the Xiao Monarch said, “Now that most of the famous figures all care about their titles, if we can link both of your names together, those small characters will very likely not mess with her because of their fear for you.”
“Oh? Is it true?” Jun Ying-Lian said.
“In fact, you don’t need to intentionally protect the people from the Misty Cloud Palace. You are actually being kind to her. That’s all. Right?” Ye Xiao asked.
“Hmm. Look. What do you think?” Ye Xiao thought for a while and said, “Let’s make it ‘Misty Cloud Bing Xin-Yue; Broad Heaven Jun Ying-Lian. How about that?”
“Great! That’s great!” Jun Ying-Lian’s face seemed glowing. She said, “Broad Heaven Jun Ying-Lian. Hmm. By the way, what’s your poetry title?”
“I don’t want to be involved into this thing. Count me out please.”
“I think it will be better if we put your name in it too. Right? Misty Cloud Bing Xin-Yue; Broad Heaven Jun Ying-Lian. Chaotic Storm Xiao Monarch; A slight effort to conquer the heavens. That is so vigorous. Who dare not to step back when hearing such lines?”
“Forget it. I am a man. Even though you don’t care, we have to protect the little girl’s fame. Besides, I am just by myself. I am afraid I can’t be at the same stage with the huge forces behind you two.”
“Hmm. Let’s see what Yue-Yue would say. I don’t really care anyway.”
“Heh heh. Yes. Just let things be how it is now.”
At that day, after talking to Ye Xiao, Jun Ying-Lian told Bing Xin-Yue about it when they met. As expected, Bing Xin-Yue refused it right away. And this thing had come to no end.
Bing Xin-Yue was the big disciple of the Misty Cloud Palace after all. She was rather capable in cultivation herself. Although she was a soft and gentle girl, she was still proud and a little bit arrogant because she was from a great sect.
She surely knew that what Jun Ying-Lian proposed was good for her, yet she still said no.
Hence, the two phrases that brought Bing and Jun together had never truly spread in the world. That was why it was seldom for people to know about it.
A few years after that, Ye Xiao died in that incident. He had never seen Bing Xin-Yue, but only heard about her from Jun Ying-Lian. Unexpectedly, he actually met her in the Land of Han-Yang this time.
[She is… her best friend. The sworn sister of… her. The best friend of… her.]
Ye Xiao coughed. When he looked at Bing Xin-Yue, his eyes had no unpleasantness anymore. He became kind and gentle. [It turns out this lady is Bing Xin-Yue, the girl she kept talking about.]
“The reason why I brought you here is that I want to know what exactly is that Purple Sky-Fire that you said you can cure us with?”
Bing Xin-Yue said casually, “You said it was the No.1 fire that was best to make dan beads. Well, you can fool the little girl Chu-Chu, but you should stop lying in front of me.”
Ye Xiao smiled bitterly. What kind of person was Bing Xin-Yue though?
He had heard Jun Ying-Lian talking about her more than once even though he had never actually met her.
She was a lady who wanted very little. She seemed to not care about all things. She was smart. There was hardly anything that could escape her sensitive awareness.
If she didn’t ask, she just didn’t care.
That didn’t mean she didn’t know anything or didn’t understand the truth.
For the current situation, the lie that he had made the last time to escape Wen-Ren Chu-Chu had apparently touched Bing Xin-Yue’s sensitive mind. It concerned a person that Bing Xin-Yue cared the most.
That was why she had to figure it all out on this matter.
Facing Bing Xin-Yue, Ye Xiao was running his brain fast. He was thinking about what to say and how to say to prevaricate in front of her.
Bing Xin-Yue was not Wen-Ren Chu-Chu.
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu might have lots of tricky thoughts in mind, yet she was easy to deal with. As long as he could keep pursuing her weakness, she could be defeated. Even if she turned violent, it wouldn’t be a huge loss for Ye Xiao. At least she wouldn’t threaten his life. Well, Bing Xin-Yue… There was very possibly nothing in this world that she didn’t know. And if she found out Ye Xiao was lying, she might take his life immediately.
He knew many things that he shouldn’t. If he became useless for her, he would die unreasonably!
“The Purple Sky-Fire… I have to say it is real.” Ye Xiao said bitterly, “Surely, it is actually not that magical like I told Chu-Chu before… However, think about my situation back then. I was captured by your disciple. I just wanted to survive and get away from here. That’s why I had to tell her the truth that I could cure the disease that was caused by the martial art of your sect… In fact, I never want to use my martial art on anything…”
Ye Xiao didn’t make it very clear with the last sentence. However, Bing Xin-Yue understood him well.
She sighed and said, “That’s true. An innocent man can be accused for only carrying something priceless. If other sects know that you are actually capable of resolving the main problem of the Misty Cloud Palace, I am afraid you, even your whole clan and everybody in your sect, will be in some serious trouble forever… You might all get killed. Even if you are in our hands, we surely won’t kill you, but we will very possibly capture you forever!”
Ye Xiao was alarmed immediately. He said, “Don’t mistake me. I can only temporarily control the initial problem of your disease. In fact, I have no confidence to handle the situation of some higher levels like yours.”
“You do.” Bing Xin-Yue spoke casually, “I have checked on you carefully and made sure you are capable of solving my problem. Otherwise, what makes you think I would talk to you peacefully like this. You have a kind of qi that is very vigorous. Such vigorous qi is something I have never seen in any people. The most magical thing is that you actually control both the gelid power and the pure yang power… Ah.”
She sighed and said, “When the Misty Cloud Palace was established at the beginning, there were three kinds of martial arts we had. The most powerful one was the one I am cultivating… However, after a big fight, we lost a part of our martial art.”
“You lost some of your basic martial art?” Ye Xiao asked.
“Yes.” Bing Xin-Yue said, “After that, our ancient masters spent a lot of time and energy trying to complete the martial art. And they finally got it done…”
“However, it was still not the original one. From then on, the only flaw in our martial art remained till now…” Her pretty eyes were staring at Ye Xiao. She spoke slowly, “From then, whoever cultivated this martial art would become unbelievably powerful and invincible, but we need the Regeneration Ink Lotus, Regeneration Jade Lotus and the Renascence Jade Lotus…”
