Chapter 58 – The Girl’s Temper. Beat Him Up!
[The faster I improve, the sooner I can leave this world…]
Ye Xiao was also keeping an eye on his own condition. He had been continuously using his power, so he must have consumed a lot of it. If that’s the case, then why was it that he didn’t feel tired at all? On the contrary, he felt like he was in a pretty good shape. He used his spiritual consciousness to check his own spiritual space and was surprised to discover that inside the Yin Space of the nine Spaces which was previously empty, there now existed some cyan fog!
The cold qi, which had been dispelled from the girl’s body, was actually not banished by the East-rising Purple Qi; it had been absorbed by the Spaces… In other words, the cold qi was actually the kind of energy that the Yin Space needed!
At this moment, Ye Xiao was incomparably astonished and overjoyed!
He had been thinking that his treatment would be some kind of thankless task which would consume a lot of energy. He had never imagined that he would have acquired such a big reward!
If not for this coincidence, it would have been quite difficult for him to find out what this Yin qi was.
After realizing this, Ye Xiao suddenly became filled with expectations about curing Wen-Ren Chu-Chu’s master. Since she was the master of this girl, her cultivation must be of a much higher grade… To put it simply, Ye Xiao could gain much more Yin qi than the amount he had gained from Wen-Ren Chu-Chu.
When he thought about that, Ye Xiao immediately told her, “If you can’t find me when you come here again, you can go to the Northern General’s House. You will know how to contact me when you get there…”
In order to get more Yin qi, Ye Xiao had to make it more convenient for her; of course, it was this convenience that brought many complications.
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu smiled gently, “You do have connections with them. During the auction, you had been acting against the Mu Clan the whole time. I guessed that you might be related to the Ye Clan… I was right.”
Ye Xiao said gloomily, “It is not a good thing for a girl to be too smart…”
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu heard him and actually sighed. She spoke softly, “Do you think I want to be this smart and concerned about everything… I want somebody to be the smart one for me…”
They were both quiet for a long time.
Ye Xiao was sitting on the bedside while Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was standing in front of window. As she gazed out of the window, Ye Xiao looked at her back.
“Sorry for offending you this time.” Wen-Ren Chu-Chu spoke in a sombre voice, “I was planning to invite you to the Kingdom of Lan-Feng because I admire your skill in dan-making… I never thought that I would be the one to owe you such a big favor.”
Slowly, Wen-Ren Chu-Chu’s voice regained its initial tranquility.
Ye Xiao didn’t talk.
“But it is fortunate that I came up with such a plan… Otherwise, I don’t know how long we would have needed to struggle before we can find a way to dispel the cold qi… This was such a lucky coincidence.” Wen-Ren Chu-Chu spoke again with a half-smile.
“One does what one must. You don’t have to keep it in mind.” Ye Xiao spoke indifferently.
“Feng Zhi-Ling…” Wen-Ren Chu-Chu said embarrassedly, “When my master comes to you for the treatment, will it also have to be like this… to proceed with her skin being touched?”
Ye Xiao was highly perceptive and noticed something strange in her words, but he didn’t think too much about it. He would never guess what she was thinking anyway. He said, “Yes. The reason why we have to do it this way is probably because my cultivation is not good enough to operate the Purple Sky-fire outside my body. I have to touch your skin to connect my qi to yours… To reach the level where I can operate the Purple Sky-fire outside my body, I need to at least reach the Grandmaster levels of Tianyuan, which would allow me to fly up to the Qing-Yun Realm.”
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu’s slim body shook suddenly as she cried, “You… You are actually planning to abandon this land and fly to the Qing-Yun Realm?”
Ye Xiao didn’t understand the reason for her sudden agitation. He said with astonishment, “Do you mean that I cannot break the limit of this world and progress to the higher realm?”
“Hmmm, no… I didn’t mean that. It was just too…” Wen-Ren Chu-Chu became embarrassed and the blush on her face once again reached her neck. Her voice became as soft as the buzzing of mosquitos. Even though Ye Xiao had ultra-sensitive hearing, he still couldn’t clearly hear the last two words that she had spoken.
“Brother Feng… Since you have completed your part of our agreement, I shall keep my promise and set you free.” Her voice contained a sense of melancholy and depression.
Ye Xiao frowned and thought: [That tone of hers…Could it be that she regrets making the agreement? Does she want to catch me once more after letting me off?]
“Don’t worry, my words carry no other meaning. It is just that… after you leave, I have to give up the former plan and go back to my kingdom straight away.” Wen-Ren Chu-Chu spoke in a low voice, “In three months, I will come back here with my master. I hope that you will give us a surprise at that time.”
“Hm, I see. I also look forward to the day we meet again.” Ye Xiao said.
When she heard those words being spoken so indifferently, without even a trace of expectation, Wen-Ren Chu-Chu couldn’t help but bite her lower lip.
“Do… you want to see my true face?” In a fit of irritation, she asked this question. She didn’t even know why she did so; it had just come out of her mouth.
Maybe she was simply dissatisfied with his reaction?
Or maybe she did not resign herself to be considered ugly by Ye Xiao?
Ye Xiao shook his head, “There is no point in seeing your face… No, thanks.”
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu’s slim body shook as a desolate smile appeared on her face. She murmured, “That’s right, what’s the point of him seeing my true face?”
She stood by the window quietly for another long time.
And when she finally turned around, her expression was ice cold.
She spoke blandly, “Since we have made an agreement already, Brother Feng, let me walk you out.”
“You’re letting me go just like this?” Ye Xiao actually felt a bit surprised.
[That is surprising, isn’t it? Is she not afraid that I’ll go back on my words or try to hide from them? Does she really not want to use any special technique to set an unbreakable block on me or something…]
“Why don’t you leave already? Do you want to live here?” Wen-Ren Chu-Chu suddenly became angry and spoke fiercely, deviating from her normal behavior.
Ye Xiao was more confused and felt that this girl was too susceptible to mood swings. He couldn’t help but sigh in his mind as he thought: [Girls are really incomprehensible creatures after all. No matter what, I have just solved a big problem for her…
And now, she suddenly became unfriendly.
There’s a good saying describing this: In this world, women are the most difficult to understand!]
He sighed internally again and followed Wen-Ren Chu-Chu out.
When they arrived at the door, Wen-Ren Chu-Chu stopped and took out a jade box from her clothes. She passed it to Ye Xiao and spoke expressionlessly, “Here is the Regeneration Ink Lotus.”
“Ok.” Ye Xiao took it immediately and held it in his hand. His eyes glanced around; he looked eager to leave.
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu gritted her teeth again.
[Asshole. You could at least fake it… Couldn’t you just pretend that you are a little reluctant to leave? I have been taking care of you all day and I have even been touched by you. Do you really need to leave so desperately?]
She then gritted her teeth and said, “Feng Zhi-Ling, you better remember this. It is a big gamble for me to give you the Regeneration Ink Lotus! If you ever lose it or ruin it… I will… I’ll… I will rip your skin off bit by bit!”
Ye Xiao shook his head and laughed, “Lady Chu-Chu, if you keep being so violent… who would want to marry you in the future?”
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was still angry but then she blushed again.
“Just leave.” She said.
A breeze blew past, blowing her robes in the air. Her long hair that was ruffled by the breeze was also floating. Her slim and tall body seemed like it would fly away with the wind at any moment.
But her eyes were filled with a sense of solitude and loneliness.
“Good bye.” Ye Xiao wouldn’t dare to stay longer, would he? As he was allowed to leave, he left without any hesitation.
“Hold on!” Watching him leave so quickly, Wen-Ren Chu-Chu gritted her teeth. She felt that she was going to freak out because of this unromantic man.
“What?! Is there a problem?” Ye Xiao turned around speechlessly.
“Just one more question.” Wen-Ren Chu-Chu took a deep breath and said, “Feng Zhi-Ling… Your face… Is this your true face?”
She didn’t want to ask this question and hadn’t planned it. She told Ye Xiao to hold on because she was still slightly angry, that was all.
However, when Ye Xiao turned around, she had nothing to say, so she tried to come up with something. Then she suddenly got an idea: [My face is disguised; could he be disguised too?]
After all, that was just her trying to think of a topic.
Ye Xiao stayed silent for a while before asking her, “Lady Chu-Chu, is your present face your true face?”
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu wouldn’t have even dreamt about receiving such an answer. She was shocked and replied, “What?”
“Think about it Lady Chu-Chu; the same applies to me. We both have a tacit understanding.” Ye Xiao laughed, threw up his hands and shrugged his shoulders.
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu’s slim body shook a little and she murmured, “It turns out you are not showing your true face either.”
She suddenly became enraged.
She had been taken advantaged of and had gotten nothing in return; only at the end did she realize that she hadn’t even seen his true face!
She got angrier the more she thought about it. Suddenly, she spoke in an ear-piercing voice, “You actually lied to me!”
Ye Xiao was astonished, “I lied to you? Never. What did I lie about?”
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu dashed over with a furious look on her face and started to beat him up frantically. She gritted her teeth while punching him, “Feng Zhi-Ling, how dare you lie to me! Feng Zhi-Ling, you lied to me…”
Her punches were getting stronger. It seemed like she was trying to release all the grievances in her heart. This girl’s temper, as well as her feelings, were all contained in her punches.
Since she was at the Level 9 of the Grade of Diyuan and Ye Xiao was only Level 1 of the same grade, she could naturally beat him up however she wanted. She was really doing it with ease and enthusiasm. Ye Xiao couldn’t do anything to defend against her and he was dumbstruck by the sudden attack.
Unwittingly, before he realized what was going on, he had been struck by the storm-like punches more than a dozen times.
Ye Xiao was totally speechless over this injustice!
He felt that he had been completely wronged.
