Chapter 67: Jealousy (1)
In the magnificent devil-immortal mainland, even if people couldn’t cultivate, people were well-respected by their martial arts skills.
Besides having a sturdy and strong body, the people on the devil-immortal world liked to ride horses and be extra. The teaching grounds was exactly where all the noble masters of devil city went to practice their riding skills and archery.
If it was in any other previous dynasties, there was no need for the devil emperor to actually come to the teaching grounds. Even if he was really interested in coming, everyone needed to retreat and make their way off.
Yet, it was different for Xuan Yi’s dynasty.
This was all because the regent, Xuan Bin, had personally ordered for the two cultivating teachers to teach and guide the emperor in order to supervise and make sure the youth devil emperor doesn’t neglect his training in cultivation.
At the same time, although the emperor was the most respected man of the world, he couldn’t dominate the teaching grounds either. Yet, the regent allowed the other officials and young masters to cultivate and practice together with the emperor.
Everyone knew that the emperor was just a ‘useless’ person that couldn’t cultivate. In addition, his body was weaker than the others, unable to compare his archery and riding skills with other people. Therefore, even in the original novel’s storyline, Xuan Yi had been humiliated and made fun off by the officials either in public or private.
However, those people who believed that they were keeping it low, didn’t know that the ‘useless’ emperor was able to hear their words loud and clear.
In this ‘food chain’ within the teaching grounds, besides the weak emperor who was at the bottom of the chain, there was naturally a person at the top.
That person was Princess Ye’s elder brother, Ye Yunsheng.
After thinking it through, Ye Yu didn’t find it hard to understand what the guards meant by ‘sparring’ and revealed mocking expressions.
After all, normally, the two’s abilities, whether in cultivation or archery or riding, were of two different worlds.
Instead of saying “sparring,” why not say “fool around?”
“Ye Yunsheng doesn’t have a sinister or malicious personality, right?”
Ye Yu asked in her heart.
The system who had been “granted a special pardon” entered the host’s conscious mind and said eagerly, “According to the roles in the original novel, Ye Yunsheng is a noble and honest person. He especially looks down on despicable means. This is the reason why he didn’t accept Xuan Bin’s invitation for recruit after finding out the truth back then.”
“Therefore, the two must have something up their sleeves.”
Ye Yiu pondered.
The system hesitated and then she couldn’t help but remind in a low voice, “My host, we’re on the same side as the devil emperor.”
Ye Yu laughed thoughtlessly and said, “Oh, sorry. Didn’t you give me the princess’s perspective? Sorry for putting myself in her shoes.”
“…” The system gave up in arguing.
The interaction stopped for a while and Ye Yu was led towards the outer teaching grounds by the guards.
Before heading in, she heard two young masters from the devil city gathering together to talk.
“Did that useless emperor improve as much as you’ve said?”
“It’s 100% true. I personally witnessed it myself. He and Ye Yunsheng’s archery skills are equally matched.”
“That’s impossible. Crown Prince Ye is a well-known and talented person within the devil city. How could that useless person be compared to Crown Prince Ye?”
“I don’t think Ye Yunsheng used his essence qi yet. They’re just competing purely on their shooting skills.”
“I knew it…”
Ye Yu listened thoughtfully.
The devil emperor who had been holding onto the principle of staying low-profile and acting weak finally revealed his skills. So, it seems like he plans on recruiting Ye Yunsheng?
Before Ye Yu could finish thinking, she had already walked into the teaching grounds.
She swept her gaze around and saw Ye Yunsheng. But Ye Yu was unable to find Xuan Yi’s figure by Ye Yunsheng’s side or anywhere else within the teaching grounds.
She hesitated before revealing a harmless smile, walking towards Ye Yunsheng…
“Emperor Xuan, are you really going to do that?”
In the cultivation room within the teaching grounds, the teacher wearing the cultivation uniform knitted his eyebrows tightly and asked worriedly.
Xuan Yi who had also changed into the uniform looked faintly at him and said, “I already made my mind up. Don’t you guys dare to approach her. The target will be Ye Yunsheng this time.”
That man hurriedly said, “But comparing the two, Ye Yu is clearly easier to control. Plus, to the others, Ye Yu is also more trustworthy than Ye Yunsheng, your majesty.”
Xuan Yi’s face distorted and he suddenly raised his eyes, his eyebrows twitching.
“Because I won’t allow her to put herself in danger! Do you understand now?!”
After that, the room was dead silent.
After snapping out of his trance, as though annoyed at his lack of control, Xuan Yi walked out with a gloomy expression.
The man stayed in his spot for a long time before chasing after Xuan Yi with a confused look. “..Your majesty!”
By the time Xuan Yi returned to the training grounds, he almost immediately sensed a familiar existence.
His eyes flickered over and subconsciously glanced at a direction.
Then, he glanced at the woman smiling beautifully by Ye Yunsheng’s side.
…well, aren’t they intimate with each other?
Xuan Yi couldn’t help but knit his eyebrows.
