Chapter 70: Dog Grows Up (2)
Ye Yu stopped answering the system and focused her attention on Xuan Yi who was already pulling the bow.
Although Xuan Bin couldn’t detect Xuan Yi’s qi, but from the strength and angle of the bow, Ye Yu guessed that Xuan Yi still didn’t use any cultivation to cheat. From those people’s perspectives that didn’t know about Xuan Yi’s cultivation, the ‘useless’ emperor who has no essence qi had shot the arrows precisely and accurately consecutively, making them shocked.
Even when the emperor was sparring with Ye Residence’s Crown Prince, they hadn’t seen the devil emperor’s skillful archery techniques.
It could be described as the work of a God assisting.
Not long, countless people huddled by the archery platform to look.
Hearing the admiration and praises, it made Ye Yu feel much better, smiling.
But while some people genuinely admire the emperor, there were others that were jealous that their spotlight was stolen.
Especially the wealthy young masters not far from the archery platform. Just before, they were secretly mocking the useless devil emperor. Now, the latter had stolen their spotlights. Despite the fact that no one admitted faults, it was enough to make their faces red with the occasional gazes they received.
One of the attendants specially lowered his voice and said, “Young master, what should…”
Someone cut off and said, “I’ll personally go later on.”
“Young master, you are?… Young master, after all, you know how to cultivate. Wouldn’t people laugh at you?”
“I’ll try my best to control it. Plus, if I don’t get my face back, do you think no one’s going to laugh at me?”
“Young master, you’re intelligent.”
Ye Yu’s gaze turned sharp and cold as she took in their conversation by extending her consciousness. Yet, she didn’t say anything and glanced at the archery platform Xuan Yi was on.
The person behind the archery platform had a flexible and light figure, seemingly ignorant to the plot happening just dozens of meters away from him.
…So calm and indifferent. She liked it.
Ye Yu smiled and curled her lips.
Yet, the system wasn’t as calm as Ye Yu.
“My host, how come you’re not stopping them yet? This wasn’t part of the original storyline. Plus, Xuan Yi definitely wouldn’t expose his status right now and if this continues, he can only allow others to bully him…”
Ye Yu said calmly, “Of course I can’t stop them.”
The system said, “…Ah?”
“Do you know what to do to prevent villains from commiting malicious deeds?”
Ye Yu smiled and asked.
In her line of vision right now, the person that was called “young master” had walked back to his archery platform, picking up his bow and arrow, pulling it to the fullest.
The slender bow was pulled into a round moon-like arc, revealing a faint noise.
Many people’s expressions changed and they all glanced over.
That was the injection of essence qi and as long as people knew cultivation, they understood this.
The system was anxious and didn’t bother to answer Ye Yu’s question, urging, “My host, if you don’t stop him right now, it’ll be too late!”
Ye Yu faintly laughed and said, “If we’re just purely stopping them, it won’t prevent them from doing it again in the future.”
At the same time she finished talking, the arrow had whizzed away and the sound had teared through the window and air.
Moments later, they heard a long bang and the row of targets had fallen on the ground under the pile of dust.
There was an uproar in the teaching grounds.
This scene didn’t surprise Ye Yu at all. She smiled, walking over; however, her beautiful eyes were cold and chilly.
“Even if I stop them this time, there will be another time, and then another time, and then another time…”
Along with her murmuring, the culprit on the archery platform curled his lips in satisfaction. Then, he pretended to be vexed, waving his hand at Xuan Yi who was forced to stop.
“I accidentally leaked my essence qi and probably startled your highness. Qi Residence’s Qi Song needs to work on his cultivation. Your highness, please show mercy!”
That man clasped his hands, but revealed a smile that was hidden from everyone.
The teaching grounds was filled with keen and alert cultivators. Right now, it was dead silent as they listened to the teasing and mocking words, glancing at Xuan Yi quietly.
They were actually a bit curious. They wondered if the emperor will continue to ignore the humiliation and endure the shame.
But in this silence, someone seemed to smile but didn’t, replying to the previous statement, “If you want to teach someone to be good, then you need to harshly and ruthlessly punish them for their wrongdoings…first.”
After hearing the words, everyone couldn’t help but glance over. Then, they detected a sharp essence qi shooting forward quickly and hit Qi Song who was clasping his hands before anyone could realize what happened.
Along with the extremely painful scream, fresh blood splashed the air.
Everyone was in terror right now.
Their attention was in the center and the young woman smiled harmlessly, slightly narrowing her almond eyes.
“Oh, sorry. My cultivation is pretty good, but I accidentally leaked my essence qi as well. If I startled you…”
Ye Yu paused here and then looked back, glancing straight at Xuan Yi. Then, she clasped her hands and bowed, saying, “Your highness, please forgive me.”

Emperor: Woof, woof, woof!
