Chapter 23: Spiritual Beast
The scene within the teahouse was unexpected for many people.
Originally, one could tell that Ye Residence’s princess was about to make a move, including Ye Yu, so everyone in the teahouse couldn’t help but feel nervous for Ye Yu.
However, within the split second, the situation had went downfall —
In the end, it was sorted out and the arrogant Ye princess was instead the one on the ground injured heavily.
Once everyone reacted, gazes of admiration and praise landed on Ye Yu.
Clearly, Ye Yu was a cultivator whose ability was above the Infant Realm in their perspectives.
But only Ye Yu and the injured princess knew the truth.
Princess Ye went from shock to surprise and then finally to fear. After snapping out of her trance, she immediately grabbed the pouch by her waist and placed a pill into her mouth, adjusting her breathing.
Moments later, her pale white face slowly returned to its redness.
The pill was clearly not just an ordinary healing pill.
After doing this, Princess Ye slowly stood up and kept her gaze concentrated on the little black puppy lying back Ye Yu’s side.
Right now, it has recovered to its lazy and leisure expression from before.
Yet, Princess Ye felt differently regarding the little black puppy from before. In her eyes right now, this gentle and harmless puppy was like a fierce beast who would pounce on its prey at any moment.
Princess Ye swallowed her saliva.
The fact that the little black puppy could suddenly strike without her noticing and its casual imposing manner had caused her to suffer a heavy injury meant that it must be at least 2 realms higher than her or so…
But how could a spiritual beast in that realm be willing to listen to a weak and defenseless ordinary woman?!
Princess Ye felt as her understanding of the world had been turned upside down.
Her expression changed a few times, but in the end, she tightly bit her molar teeth. She clenched her hands and walked to Ye Yu, looking at the little black puppy who didn’t even bother to look at her in alarm, as if preparing for the other party to strike whenever.
Then, she walked straight to Ye Yu and that little black puppy still didn’t glance at her at all.
Princess Ye’s expression slightly changed, but suppressed her anger, despite her urge to unleash it on Ye Yu. She looked at Ye Yu and forced a distorted smile, saying, “So, great master Ye…has a spiritual beast as bodyguard…no wonder you’re confident. It seems like I underestimated great Master Ye…”
The pupil of Ye Yu’s eyes shrunk.
Before the princes had said anything, Ye Yu who had no cultivation at all, was unable to detect who had helped her in reality.
But now, the answer was obvious.
Yet, Ye Yu didn’t reveal her shocked expression, shooting Princess Ye a small smile.
“It’s not that I’m not confident in my words from before. It’s because I want to say that if people only dare to say things when they’re confident, then they’re actually pitiful and weak in reality. ‘Princess’ Ye, what do you think?”
Princess Ye’s face flushed from the subtle jab.
She naturally could tell that Ye Yu was mocking her for bullying people under the name of the Ye Residence. Normally, she would’ve exploded by now, but…
Princess Ye looked at the little black puppy in alert, trying her best to hold the smile.
“I will remember great master Ye’s words…I’ll be sure to thank you in the future.”
After saying this, Princess Ye calmly turned around and left the teahouse. But looking at the speed, it seemed like she was chased by some ferocious beast.
The moment Princess Ye left, the An Xiang Teahouse became silent for a while before people started to murmur in low voices.
Of the customers, there was someone who admired Ye Yu without hesitation.
“I am truly admired by great master Ye who doesn’t submit to threats and status.”
Yet, there were others who praised her actions and couldn’t help but say in low voices, “But General Xuan Bin in the Ye Residence has gained the Emperor’s favor deeply. Now that the residence has been getting more and more powerful by the day…even if great master Ye is a cultivator, it’s not a smart decision to offend such an important figure…”
“Thanks for everyone’s concerns.”
Ye Yu smiled and bowed, saying, “In this world, fate is like money to me. Happiness is the most important. If I can be happy and live my life the way I want, that’s the best. But if I am fated to endure grievances and forced to tolerate injustices, living in fear day and night…”
At this point, Ye Yu shook her head and smiled. “I’d rather die and live unrestrained than being forced to do things the way others like.”
Once she said there, there were people revealing looks of disapproval while others fell into deep thought. There was another one who said, “Great master Ye is open-minded.”
“Right, great master Ye is indeed open-minded…given 30 medium grade spirit stones at which each one is worth 10,000 silvers, great master Ye was able to deny the offer just like that…”
People sighed with feelings.
Ye Yu smiled and looked down, muttering something.
“Great master Ye, what did you say?”
Everyone didn’t hear it clearly and asked for clarification.
Ye Yu said, “…I said that it’s just merely worldly possessions.”
“Oh, no wonder you’re known as great master Ye. You have different views from ordinary people like this.”
500 silvers who was lying on the table pursed his lips.
The little black puppy had heard this clearly. In reality this woman said, “300,000 silvers ah. Young people these days don’t know how to do business…if she really exchanged the spirit stones for silvers and placed it in front of me, I might just agree right away…”
Before 500 silvers could express his disdain towards Ye Yu, he suddenly felt a cold and eerie gaze on him.
After two seconds, he slowly turned his body, back facing Ye Yu and refusing to raise his head.
Then, he heard Ye Yu talking from behind, “Everyone, I am incredibly sorry, but there are urgent matters that I need to handle at home. Please come again tomorrow.”
Although everyone was displeased, after seeing Ye Yu’s ‘cultivation’ skills and witnessing this great show, they naturally couldn’t say anything much; they all bid farewell to Ye Yu.
Ye Yu smiled at them and patted 500 silvers’ forehead, heading out of the teahouse.
500 silvers forze for 2 seconds before jumping down the table and gloomily following her with his tail between his legs.
Ye Yu paused before bending down and carrying 500 silvers in her arms.
When she stood up, she paused and said, “Why did you become heavier?”
“And, why did that Princess Ye said you’re a spiritual beast?”
“500 silvers, I’m warning you. Don’t act dead.”
