Chapter 20: Fate (2)
It felt like Ye Yu was scared that Ye Yu didn’t understand, so she smiled at the other party and repeated her words, admiring the young lady.
“Lady has written great words. One could tell you must be from an affluent and well-educated family!”
The teahouse became silent momentarily before people burst into laughter.
How could the young lady not understand that Ye Yu was mocking her? Her face was flushed from anger, but she couldn’t explain herself.
After all, the truth was in her face and she hadn’t placed the brush in her hand down yet.
The young lady coldly humphed and said, “Tell me now!”
This time, Ye Yu didn’t bother to request to ‘check her pulse.’ No matter what she was thinking it was clearly that the customer would probably not cooperate with her.
Thankfully, the person only wanted a name, so that was simple for her.
In the small frame which indicated the person’s whole life, the first row revealed their names. In other words, as long as she and the young lady ‘accidentally’ touched one another, she could figure out the other party’s name at first glance.
Thinking of this, Ye Yu slightly smiled and asked, “Why don’t we discuss the price first?”
The young lady seemed to be quite infuriated and she asked, “You didn’t even tell me what I want yet and you want money?”
Ye Yu smiled and said, “It’s only a fact of moments before I tell you your name, so why not discuss the price first? After all, we’re not in a hurry. In the end, the money is still mine.”
As she finished, Ye Yu purposefully paused and said, “…Or could it be that you’re a bit scared?”
“Ok! I’ll give you a price!” The young lady clenched her teeth and placed her hand on her waist, and then a rock laid on the palm of her hands.
Everyone stared at it and countless people were confused, but one person’s expression changed.
“It doesn’t seem like an ordinary spiritual stone…”
“Look at the smoothness. This is probably a medium grade spirit stone!”
“A medium grade spirit stone probably costs tens of thousands of silvers, right?”
“Tens of thousands of silvers? That’s just a saying. If you don’t believe me, go to Dengtian Pavilion and ask. Which fool would sell a medium grade spirit stone to you for tens of thousands of silvers?”
“That’s also true…”
Hearing the discussion behind her, the young lady finally revealed a mocking smile.
“How is it? Would this price move great master Ye?”
Ye Yu didn’t say anything, but her curious gaze landed on the stone.
She was different from the people in this world. According to the setting in the book, certain people from the immortal/devil mainland were born with spiritual foundations. Even if some weren’t born with this, they could acquire this through other methods, like using large amounts of spirit stones or spirit seeds to induce the spiritual foundation.
As a complete stranger, she had nothing to do with the immortal/devil world as well as the spiritual foundation. That spirit stone was no use to her, therefore. Besides the fact that it could solve her issue of walking in the dark and replacing the use of a flashlight.
However, after hearing people’s discussion, she changed her expression.
Ye Yu stood up and looked towards the direction of the discussion.
Seeing that great master Ye had stood up, everyone didn’t dare to talk anymore, all waiting for her to speak.
Then, they saw great master Ye smiling and asking, “Which brother said that it costs tens of thousands of silver? I am willing to sell it.”
Everyone was speechless.
If they remembered correctly, the spiritual stone didn’t seem…
“Ye — !” That young lady stood up angrily, but didn’t call out Ye Yu’s full name. In the end, she coldly said, “You didn’t tell me what I wanted yet. Don’t be too arrogant! If you can’t give me an answer, you’re the one losing face!”
“I misspoke. Lady, please calm down…”
After hearing this, Ye Yu turned around calmly and pretended to help this young lady, saying, “Here, take a seat — “
Her finger carelessly touched the young lady’s wrist.
After a few seconds, everyone in the teahouse noticed that the young lady had sat down, but their great master Ye seemed to be stunned.
“Great master Ye?”
Someone kindly called and this made Ye Yu snap out of her trance.
Then, she sighed and looked at that young lady with complicated feelings.
The young lady made eye contact with Ye Yu and her body instinctively sat up, shivering.
The young lady didn’t know why but the gaze made it seem like Ye Yu had seen through her and she was transparent in front of her eyes.
…but how is that possible?
This so-called great master Ye was just an ordinary person and she, herself, had passed ningqi and tongmai, the two realms already. She even moved from the Devil Nucleus Realm to the Infant Realm. She should’ve escaped the clutches of ordinary people…
Before the young lady could finish her thought, she heard the woman standing there laughing and saying, “It’s really…fate.”
“What, what fate?”
Ye Yu seemingly laughed at the young lady pretending to be stupid.
“It seems like we have the same names. Isn’t this fate?”
