Chapter 27 – Hero Saving the Beauty
Yuan Chu was horribly annoyed.
“What’s wrong?” Ye Chenyuan couldn’t help but ask, seeing her silence and her stealthy puzzled glance at him.
Yuan Chu frowned. She pointed to the beautiful girl no far from them. “Little Yuan Yuan, look closely at that girl. Don’t you want to save her?”
Hearing this, Ye Chenyuan closely glanced at the girl, who was fighting her attackers. He seriously replied, “Master, I don’t know her.”
If I don’t know her, why should I save her?
Yuan Chu fell down laughing. So oblivious! Might he walk down the same disastrous path?
No! It was fine before since he was her enemy, but now he was her disciple. Cultivators inquiring after dao was good and all, but it was too pitiful if they had nothing besides that in their lives! After all, on top of not abstaining from mortal pleasures, many had three wives and four concubines!
In a moment, countless ideas flashed past Yuan Chu’s little mind. Especially the thought of Ye Chenyuan’s lonely end, it was so heroically tragic… This could not go on!
For her disciple’s lifelong happiness, she must start now!
She pointed at the girl. “See that girl? She’s so pretty, yet someone’s trying to kill her. There must be some big inside story! Since we saw it, we can’t just stand by and watch!”
Ye Chenyuan frowned slightly. For some reason, he felt like his master had just started on some weird scheme. Also, that girl was pretty? He couldn’t see it.
But he stood by anything his master did, so he immediately changed his attitude. “Then what does Master want me to do?”
Yuan Chu smiled at his obedience. “How about this: the ones set on killing, the talisman they threw hit me! I’m very unhappy, so you should go teach them a lesson!”
She had seen beforehand that among those people, the strongest was at Foundation Building. With Ye Chenyuan’s current great perfection Qi Condensation cultivation, and his unscientific ability to kill people above his rank, it was definitely no problem for him.
Seeing Yuan Chu’s evil grin, Ye Chenyuan helplessly nodded. Perhaps a year of punishment had bored her silly, so she wanted to amuse herself. How could he not help her?
Thus, he took out the pastries in his storage bad and arranged them next to Yuan Chu. Once he was done attending to her, he cutely said, “Then please wait a moment, Master. I’ll be right back.”
Yuan Chu hurriedly waved her hand. “Go, go!” Don’t make the girl wait!
Ye Chenyuan somewhat helplessly glanced at her. The pampering and indulging in his eyes was obvious. But Yuan Chu, who was anxious to watch the drama, didn’t notice it.
“Enough, stop resisting! That our master took a fancy to you is your good fortune! You dare to run? Hurry up and come with me!”
After drawing near, Ye Chenyuan realized these people weren’t here to kill the girl but to take her away.
He hadn’t wanted to participate in something like this, but they were Master’s orders. And so, just as the man was just about to grab the girl, he pulled his sword out of its scabbard and used the blade to separate them.
Before, they had raised up a storm fighting; no one noticed two unexpected guests arrive amidst the exploding talismans flying everywhere. And that girl never thought that someone would still move to save her even seeing the Zhou family’s special attire.
The girl was behind Ye Chenyuan as he faced the group of more than ten people, yet he showed no fear.
“This person, my master wants her. If you want to make a move, I will accompany you.”
The opposing people heard his words and became enraged. So it was someone who came to steal a bride? The leader swept his gaze over him, sneering. “Do you know who we are? Not even going to ask around? We are the Zhou family’s people! This woman is the concubine our lord took fancy too! Now that you know, scram! A great perfection Qi Condensation cultivator wants to play the hero saving the beauty? Do you believe I could leave you on the ground searching for your teeth?!”
Ye Chenyuan didn’t speak. In his sea of consciousness, Venerable Li asked him, “The Zhou family? Isn’t that the family who you are offering birthday felicitations to this time? Isn’t the quality of their subordinates just too poor…”
Ye Chenyuan also thought it was troublesome, but the person Master wanted to save, no matter who it was, he had to save her!
Seeing Ye Chenyuan refuse a toast only to be forced to drink a forfeit, they exchanged glances and then sprang upon him like a swarm of wasps. Ye Chenyuan was on guard at first; after all, they were of higher cultivation than him. However, after exchanging blows, not to mention the Qi Condensation ones, the only Foundation Building cultivator’s foundation wasn’t stable at all. It was like he had completely relied on external sources to accumulate it. Plus, his cultivation technique was too poor. It wouldn’t be difficult to defeat him.
Venerable Li had wanted to help, but seeing how Ye Chenyuan easily dealt with them, he leisurely commented, “This fellow’s a bit strange. He seems like some sort of earnest cultivator, yet he’s already at Foundation Building. Must’ve used some sort of trick.”
Ye Chenyuan didn’t care about that. Although he had expended a lot of effort, he still defeated those people! A Qi Condensing cultivator could unexpectedly surpass his realm and challenge a Foundation Builder with one against ten! If this person didn’t have amazing luck, then he had a powerful background!
Thinking this, the defeated Foundation Building cultivator didn’t dare to advance. He covered his beat-up stomach, saying in dissatisfaction, “Who are you? If you have guts, say your name!”
Ye Chenyuan didn’t want to invite trouble for his master. He used one hand to help the girl on the ground up. He glanced at the ten or so cowering people and frowned.
Then, it was like their bravery was scared to pieces. They shouted curses while retreating.
The girl couldn’t be any more grateful for being saved!
“Benefactor!” She bowed deeply at Ye Chenyuan. “Many thanks for your help. If not for you, they would’ve taken me away to become a concubine!”
Seeing her throw herself at him, Ye Chenyuan quickly took a big step back. “No problem. It wasn’t me who wanted to save you. It was my master.”
The girl raised her head, about to say something, but when she saw Ye Chenyuan’s face, she was startled into a daze.
The cultivation world was not in the least lacking in beautiful people. She had stayed so long in the Zhou family, yet she hadn’t seen such an attractive youth. A pity, he was too young.
Her eyes darkened slightly, and she bowed again. “I do not know where your master is. I must thank him! Only…”
She hesitated. “Only because of me, you’ve offended a side branch of the Zhou family. They will certainly come back to look for trouble…”
Also, although she herself had been saved, she didn’t know what to do now.
If the youth in front of her… If his master could let her stay with them, it’d be good. To be able to raise a disciple like this youth, his master must be amazing.
Thinking this, the girl looked at Ye Chenyuan with faintly expectant eyes.
Ye Chenyuan frowned deeply. He didn’t know why, but the girl’s prying eyes disgusted him. Sure enough, saving people and whatnot was truly too troublesome!
