Chapter 37: Personal Attendant
Considering that there were soldiers after them, Ye Yu and Xuan Yi didn’t dare to stay too long at their current location; they ended up heading towards the devil city which wasn’t too far from them.
Before they almost arrived at the devil city, Xuan Yi pulled Ye Yu towards a concealed and shady place outside the city, gazing sharply at the people coming in and out of the devil city.
Ye Yu knitted her eyebrows when she saw this, asking, “Ye Residence’s people are also within the devil city?”
“…” Xuan Yi observed momentarily before turning around and saying, “I’m not sure, but there seems to be three cultivators in the Infant Realm who look very suspicious.”
“Which three?” Ye Yu asked.
Xuan Yi immediately waved his hands and three forms of airflow pointed towards the direction of the three people.
He had a higher cultivation than the three people, so he naturally wasn’t worried of being detected right now.
After seeing the three people, Ye Yu squinted her eyes and laughed, saying, “Infant Realm cultivators are no noobs. Under broad daylight, they had settled down by the devil city’s entrance, so they are definitely targeting someone.”
Thinking of this, Ye Yu looked at Xuan Yi and asked, “Has anything big in the devil city or the devil palace happen…”
Ye Yu suddenly stopped talking and looked strangely, asking, “Why are you looking at me like that?”
Xuan Yi was stunned by Ye Yu’s words and then his originally gloomy and dark gaze recovered its brightness.
He shifted his gaze awkwardly and said, “It’s a habit…”
Ye Yu was speechless.
She knew that during the time period when she would carry 500 silvers all around with her, she would always see the little thing lying against the teahouse’s wooden table, lost in thought while looking at her. But whether it was a person of a dog’s soul hiding behind this intense gaze, the contrast really made a difference.
Could it be that she had been overly gentle that made it seem like she had the halo of a mother around her?
Ye Yu sunk into a deep reflection and while she was doing that, Xuan Yi had suppressed his emotions. He took out some things from the storage of the ring on his right hand and lined them up in a row besides the ground.
When Ye Yu snapped out of her trance and saw these items, she was stunned. “What is this?”
Xuan Yi didn’t look up and stared at the items in seriousness and solemness.
“You look too pretty, so you can’t just return to the devil city like this.”
Hearing this, Ye Yu was genuinely shocked.
She tilted her head and glanced at Xuan Yi only to see him still fiddling with the items, not reacting to what he had just said himself, making her laugh.
…This was the first time someone had complimented her looks genuinely and sincerely as if “they should’ve done this.”
While Ye Yu was thinking about this, Xuan Yi clearly had prepared his things and turned around to look at Ye Yu.
“Don’t move. Let me handle this for you.”
Ye Yu glanced at the tools in his hands and smiled but not really smiled, saying, “I didn’t know you were going to be a future stylist.”
After getting along with Ye Yu for a month or so, Xuan Yi was already used to this woman spitting some bewildering words, so he didn’t find it strange now.
He reached over and held Ye Yu’s chin, slightly tilting her face to the side.
When Ye Yu snapped out of her trance, she looked down and expressionlessly started to warn herself in her heart.
People can be shameless, but they must have a bottom line… The little body in front of you is only 15-16 years old, so you can’t be easily seduced by his beauty…
After she self-hypnotized herself a few times, Ye Yu heard the youth saying, “Ok, no one can recognize you now.”
Ye Yu looked up to glance at him.
Xuan Yi probably thought that she didn’t believe him, so he held the porcelain round can and explained, “I used high-grade spiritual things to blend this, so even a Primal Chaos cultivator wouldn’t be able to see your true appearance.”
“Oh.” Ye Yu said this without much energy and kept his head down. “How is the makeup’s substainabiltiy? Is it waterproof? Will it prevent acne? Can you remove the makeup quickly?”
Xuan Yi was confused and asked, “…what?”
Ye Yu stared at him and sighed, saying, “See, it’s obviously hard for us to communicate with one another. When you force 2 people who have difficulty communicating, issues are bound to rise.”
Xuan Yi’s gaze flickered and remained unmoved, saying, “You can explain to me.”
“I can’t explain it clearly.”
Despite seeing that Ye Yu was unwilling to cooperate, Xuan Yi wasn’t annoyed either.
He pondered momentarily before he said, “If what you mean ‘makeup’s sustainability’ is referring to how long the makeup could last, as long as I don’t do anything, this makeup will naturally stay there forever.”
Ye Yu shockingly looked at him and Xuan Yi couldn’t help but curl his lips up after confirming that his guess was accurate.
“Waterproof…if even Primal Chaos cultivators aren’t able to see through the makeup, how could the makeup easily be washed off by water? Of course, if it’s some century-old water-related spiritual things, I can’t be certain.”
“Indeed, I don’t understand your third point. But ‘take off easily’ should be talking about taking off the makeup right? I can help you handle that. It’ll be over quickly.”
Ye Yu looked at Xuan Yi in admiration and then patted his shoulders, saying, “You have talent in language, young one.”
Xuan Yi’s gaze flickered and after a moment, he held Ye Yu’s hand and led them towards the devil city. “Then let’s go inside now.”
Ye Yu originally wanted to struggle free but in the next second, after seeing the youth’s expression gradually changing, she couldn’t help but be stunned.
“This is the given power within my blood.”
As they were talking, Xuan Yi’s appearance had changed drastically and it seemed like even his height had changed quite a bit.
“If I was just altering my appearance, I don’t need these spiritual items.”
Ye Yu couldn’t think of any other adjectives.
The two entered the devil city without mishap and they headed towards the devil palace.
Halfway, Ye Yu carelessly thought of an important question. “You’re planning to bring me to the devil palace to hide?”
“But under what status? There couldn’t just be an extra person within the palace coming out from thin air.”
“I will let someone arrange for you to enter the Singsong Department and then…”
Xuan Yi looked down and his ears slightly turned red.
“I’m already at the age where I can pick women to tend to my sexual desires.”
Ye Yu was speechless.

Ye Yu: What the heck?
