Chapter 25: Does He Understand? (1)
These two days, Li De had gotten a huge business in the devil city. A famous businessman invited him over to tell a fortune for his newborn.
According to Li De’s rules, the day before telling a fortune, he had to fast and bathe in order to worship the Heaven. He politely rejected the businessman’s offer of a single courtyard for him to live in while he prepared for his work. Instead, Li De specially went to a cottage within the forest outside the devil city.
Whenever he was about to tell a fortune, he would come here.
Like when he was the discipline of Tianjin Pavilion, he fortunately had heard of the head of the pavilion instructing the disciplines to pay extreme attention to preparation before the fortune-telling. Otherwise, one mistake could cause a counterattack on themselves, resulting in a punishment from Heaven and leading to lots of trouble.
Li De placed the leader’s words in his heart. No matter big or small fortune-telling, he always fasted and bathed in order to worship Heaven. He always believed in this being the reason why he had been living a peaceful life.
Until he met Ye Yu.
Recalling his new mysterious master, Li De couldn’t help but sigh.
An ordinary person who seemed to have no cultivation could frequently boast and act arrogant, not placing destiny in her eyes.
What made Li De confused was how even the leader of the pavilion treated the destiny carefully and with caution. But for Ye Yu, destiny was like weed grown in her garden. She could casually speak of this in a conversation with other people.
But after observing for a while, he noticed that not only didn’t Ye Yu face the wrath of Heaven, but she lively happily and freely. This swayed Li De’s faith he had believed in for many years.
Thinking of this, Li De sighed heavily again.
“Why are you sighing at such a young age?”
Before Li De finished sighing, he suddenly heard this calm voice.
Li De jumped up from the praying mat due to the startle.
Then, he saw Ye Yu who was standing right behind him, not having the intention of concealing herself at all.
Ye Yu was knitting her eyebrows, looking a bit unpleased at him.
“There is a saying that even when Mt. Tai collapses in front of one’s eyes, they remain expressionless. Even when a deer appears in front of them, they won’t blink their eyes. They are not influenced by worldly matters and are able to remain calm when encountering an issue. Although this master doesn’t require you to be able to do so, you can’t be so flustered and hot-tempered like you are right now.”
After hearing Ye Yu’s words, Li De silently swallowed his words.
This was the first in nearly a century that he was being reprimanded by a young lady who doesn’t seem to be older than 20 or so.
But, he had no choice. That day, he swore to Heaven and even delivered the card to worship Ye Yu as a master. No matter the scoldings he received from Ye Yu from that day on, he had to endure it.
Plus, although Master Ye doesn’t seem to be old, her words implied the truth…
After Li De calmed down, he couldn’t help but think of what Ye Yu had said.
However, she didn’t give him much time to think about it, expressing her intention of coming here after she casually found a stone to sit on.
“If this master sees…had done a good job at fortune-telling, you should be a cultivator from the immortal world. Plsu, you arrived at the Sprout Realm which is the same as the devil world’s Infant Realm, right?”
After Ye Yu said this, Li De stopped trying to analyze her words and widened his eyes when he heard this, as if looking at a strange beast descending from Heaven.
After a moment, he snapped out of his trance and said, “Master Ye, as an ordinary person, how do you know about my destiny? Even more, you seem to be certain and positive, not afraid that Heaven may unleash its fury on you…”
Ye Yu smiled and waved her hands, saying, “You don’t need to flatter me. As long as you have a sense of it in your heart.”
Li De seemed to have thought of something and suddenly widened his eyes at Ye Yu.
“Could it be that Master Ye was able to tell a fortune regarding my secluded and secret residence that day of as well?”
