Chapter 12: Weather Forecast (2)
Ye Yu looked genuinely at him and said, “Whether you’re in the devil city or not has no influence on me. Really.”
Before Li De could say anything, the people in the teahouse watching a show had already burst into laughter.
Li De was infuriated and said, “Then if I lose, I will…I will worship you as master!”
Ye Yu shook her head and said, “I’m not interested in a disciple who is slow-witted.”
Li De was speechless.
But at this time, Ye Yu who had taken a few steps suddenly stopped and even turned around.
“However, maybe it’s a trend to accept a fee to formally become an apprentice here?”
Li De was baffled.
Seeing how seriously Ye Yu was staring at him, Li De confirmed that she wasn’t joking around.
He kept a poker face and said in a disdainful tone, “You think I would care about that fee if you can really win me?”
Ye Yu said, “Ok, then I’ll compete with you. Tell me, what is the competition about?”
“On fortune-telling obviously!”
“We are each going to pick 10 people present and we will fortune-tell for each person, how about that?”
“It’s too much work.” Ye Yu waved her hand and said, “I already said that I’m in a rush.”
“Then how do you want to compete?”
Ye Yu raised her finger at the bright and sunny sky outside the teahouse.
“So what if we can fortune-tell people’s lives? My nickname is ‘half-immortal,’ so I naturally have to know how to fortune-tell destiny.”
Li De widened his eyes and finally snapped out of his trance after a while, looking at her coldly and tauntingly.
“Even the head of the Tianji Pavilion doesn’t dare to speak of destiny. A young lady like you dares to say that? Aren’t you afraid of biting on your tongue?”
Ye Yu smiled and said, “I’m not scared. Are you?”
“…Fine! I want to know about my destiny. As long as you can tell me, I will definitely worship you as master! Plus, from now on, I will regard your words as orders and will do anything to fulfill your orders!”
The bustling atmosphere in the teahouse gradually faded and became more quiet. Countless people all glanced over.
Although Li De wasn’t always accurate in his fortune-telling, he was also a well-known figure who had travelled extensively. Now that they heard Li De exclaiming this confidently, the people couldn’t help but feel nervous for Ye Yu.
Li De seemed to be infuriated by Ye Yu’s words of telling destiny that he remained expressionless now. “What happens if you lose?”
Ye Yu was shocked and said, “How could I lose?”
The teahouse was silent.
Li De’s face turned bright red and 500 silvers who was in Ye Yu’s arms couldn’t help but look at her unhappily.
Before Li De exploded due to anger, Ye Yu sighed and said as if tolerating a kid causing trouble.
“Whatever. I’ll casually say something…If I lose, I’ll leave the devil city, ok?”
“ — You go first!” Li De clenched his teeth and said this.
Ye Yu glanced at the sunny and bright sky outside and smiled, turning back around.
“Within the time to burn a joss stick, it will rain. Everyone, go back and collect your clothes.”
“How is this possible?!”
“Right? It’s bright and sunny right now. How could it rain? Don’t mention the time to burn a joss stick, but it won’t rain within 2 hours still!”
While everyone was exclaiming happily and roaring in laughter, Li De slowly went from anger to disdain. From his perspective, Ye Yu was just speaking without thinking since she knew that she couldn’t win him.
Ye Yu didn’t bother to explain herself and she continued, “Before leaving the house, I didn’t fortune-tell how the day was going to be today, so I forgot to bring an umbrella. I’m going to buy one now and if no one believes me, you guys can wait here.”
Li De sneered, “Who knows if you will run off?”
“I didn’t even get my fee yet, so why would I go?” Ye Yu stared at him confusedly and shook her head, carrying 500 silvers out the teahouse.
Within the time to burn a joss stick, Ye Yu came back with an oiled paper umbrella and slowly walked over in the rain, forming a clear contrast with the people hurrying on the streets for shelter.
The customers who suddenly witnessed the rain and were stuck in the teahouse as well as Li De who was flabbergasted watched as she walked over in the rain.
“…Could greater master Ye really be…an immortal from reincarnation?”
Someone murmured this in the teahouse.
At first, the other people thought it was bizarre, but after thinking about it, this seemed to be the only reasonable reason.
Otherwise, why could Lady Ye accurately state what was going to happen just by casually glancing at it when even the head of the Tianji Pavilion didn’t dare to speak of it?
At this time, Ye Yu who was regarded as an immortal by everyone, pushed her phone within her pocket silently.
Although the battery had never changed since she came here, the battery didn’t seem to be providing the power of the phone anymore. But who knows if the phone will short circuit if water got on it?
Plus, from today, it seemed like the weather forecast was much more accurate here than in her last life. She reluctantly removed the phone from the list of useless things.
As she thought about this, Ye Yu smiled faintly and walked into the teahouse, placing the oiled paper umbrella to the side and then looking at Li De who was stunned.
“You don’t need to climb a mountain of swords or plunge into the sea for me. Good disciple, hand in your fee first.”
