Chapter 94: 500 Silvers, Calm Down (2)
Even if there was only a slim possibility, everyone still rushed madly for something unattainable.
Who knew that even before arriving at the feet of the Jian Sect’s mountain, Ye Yu didn’t expect to witness what it meant by “a vast crowd.” It was even more crowded than the train stations during the rush hours of work in the imperial capital from her previous life.
They were squished to the point where their feet were about to leave the ground.
Watching from afar, Ye Yu wanted to back out of this already.
It seemed like Xuan Yi had seen through Ye Yu’s thoughts, so he stopped the horse carriage and comforted, “The selection ceremony for Jian Sect’s disciple will continue for the next five days. We don’t need to be too anxious and we can go there when there aren’t as many people anymore.”
Ye Yu sighed.
More or less, she feared being in crowded places. Seeing people moving slowly in a line, she already felt dizzy before leaving the horse carriage.
“In case anything happens, I will hide your cultivation first.” Xuan Yi said.
Ye Yu was stunned and then she nodded and expressed her approval. Then, she felt Xuan Yi’s consciousness looming over her.
Moments later, he completely hid Ye Yu’s devil cultivation. Xuan Yi withdrew his spiritual consciousness and then seemingly carelessly asked, “You don’t seem surprised that I can do this?”
Ye Yu hesitated before reporting in honestly, “Mhm. Because you had exhibited this ability in your original fate as well.”
Xuan Yi’s gaze flickered as he said, “Sister, in my original fate, you don’t exist, right?”
“…” Ye Yu expected him to remember the things she had said to him as the world was resetting and they were in the underground palace, so she wasn’t surprised by Xuan Yi’s guess.
She nodded and said, “Mhm.”
“Then in my original fate, who did I do this for?”
Hearing this question, Ye Yu lazily smiled.
Xuan Yi was speechless.
As expected, once he exposed her, this woman didn’t bother to hide her true nature.
Yet, he liked her this way.
This was probably an incurable sickness that even Yun Sect could do nothing about.
He thought about it and got an answer.
“Is it for Yun Hua?”
Ye Yu smiled and nodded, saying, “Yes, your Empress.”
Xuan Yi heard of the same phrase again. In the beginning, he didn’t really understand, but after connecting what Ye Yu had said, he knew the meaning of the phrase now.
The first second after thinking it through, Xuan Yi knitted his eyebrows.
“I won’t marry her and I’ve told you that before.”
Ye Yu really didn’t want to discuss the deviation of the storyline with Xuan Yi and she was about to skip over this topic when an idea popped in her mind.
She secretly asked the system, “In the original novel’s plot, Xuan Yi was on his way to the Jian Sect with Yun Hua that he noticed that she was Yun Sect’s leader’s only daughter, right?”
After the system checked the data, it gave a positive answer.
“Then I’ll complement the plot.”
In reality, Ye Yu slightly narrowed her eyes and said, “Do you know Yun Hua’s status?”
Xuan Yi said, “I don’t know, but this has nothing to do with me marrying her or not.”
“…There is a relationship.” Ye Yu chuckled happily and said, “She is Yun Sect’s leader’s only daughter. If you really married her, then you’ll gain a ton of assistance and power, only one man below in the immortal world. If you’re really not interested in her, why don’t I marry her for you?”
