Chapter 28 – What Is Dual Cultivation?
Seeing that Ye Chenyuan hadn’t made any progress for a while, she leaped down from the spiritual tool. Only, she didn’t forget that her childish figure would be unconvincing. She used a transformation pill to change her appearance.
When he smelled his master’s unique milky fragrance, Ye Chenyuan couldn’t resist glancing back with a smile. Yet what he saw was an extremely alluring and handsome man walking toward them waving a fan.
Yuan Chu had transformed into Ye Chenyuan’s future appearance. Only, Ye Chenyuan always wore black or white if not blue clothes. The handsome man of her illusion wore red clothes with gold border. The jade folding fan in his hand was embedded with precious stones. It was like “I’m rich” was written on his face!
She smiled faintly at Ye Chenyuan and the girl. With the male lead’s devastatingly beautiful face paired with those blinding clothes, just a smile would be enough to captivate someone’s heart!
“Disciple, what’s wrong? And this fairy, I don’t know how to address you?”
The girl’s eyes stared fixedly at Yuan Chu’s face. She had completely lost her way. Hearing Yuan Chu’s words, she said without thinking:
“This little girl… Fang Die.”
Her expression was dull, but inside, she was flooded with thoughts. Heavens, there was such an attractive person in this world? Could he be a real fairy?! Only, why did this immortal look so similar to the youth who saved her? Could they be… brothers?
Ye Chenyuan’s face had completely darkened. Especially that Fang Die girl incessantly staring at his master, it gave him a deep feeling of grievance.
Master loved to play around, he could understand that. But why did she have to transform into something so similar to him? It was so weird to look at.
He helplessly sighed. “Master, we already saved her, and we have places to be. It’d be better if…”
Hearing Ye Chenyuan’s intention to leave, the girl awoke from her daze. She suddenly kneeled down with a thump!
In her blind enticement as she experienced this exceptionally beautiful countenance, Yuan Chu froze for a moment. She smiled. “Fairy Fang, speak your mind. No need to do this.”
Ye Chenyuan pursed his lips, glaring at Fang Die, dissatisfied at her underhanded moves.
“Asking Great God to save my life! This little girl truly has no choice, so I beg you!” As Fang Die spoke, she desperately tried to squeeze out a few tears, but to no avail. The man Yuan Chu had transformed into was simply too handsome. She stared in awe, almost forgetting her lines.
There it was, the classic scene of the hero saving the beauty! Yuan Chu was so unquestionably satisfied. She had forgotten about enlightening Ye Chenyuan, completely immersed in her play.
She folded up her fan, her voice solemn. “What troubles do you have? There is no harm in telling me. I might be able to help.”
“Master!” Ye Chenyuan resisted his impulse to toss this woman far, far away. He gritted his teeth. “We still have things to do!”
Yuan Chu pouted. Seeing Ye Chenyuan’s serious face, she hmph-ed and pretended not to hear him.
Fang Die pretended not to hear as well. She hurriedly recounted her bitter experiences.
It turns out, in Lihaiqian Province, the Zhou family had already dominated for thousands of years. Their unfailing prosperity was because of their unique cultivation technique.
Besides ordinary cultivation, they also cultivated the dual cultivation technique handed down by their ancestors. The Zhou family’s dual cultivation was particular. Other’s dual cultivation had two people advancing together. However, the Zhou family’s was different. Their dual cultivation technique only needed the man to cultivate. Every time he dual cultivated, the man’s desires would become especially powerful. It would need many women to satisfy it. And the higher the cultivation, the bigger the requirements. Thus, every man in the Zhou family had many wives. Their cultivations also had faster progress than other’s.
If it weren’t for their strong dual cultivation method and the benefits the brides’ families received, the Zhou family would have long sunk onto the path of demonic ways.
The thing is, the Zhou family was simply too big. The number of women they needed was too much. And those with slightly higher cultivations refused ordinary women. They wanted ones with cultivation, beautiful ones.
Those with the authority naturally didn’t need to worry. There would be women who were willing. But those without authority, those of side branches, if wanted women, they resorted to various methods. Some women weren’t willing, so they took them by force, turning into today’s matter.
Yuan Chu heard this and looked at her. “So you didn’t want to become a concubine and were caught escaping?”
Fang Die nodded. “Although this kind of cultivation method is harmless to me, but, but…” She sneakily glanced at Yuan Chu’s beautiful countenance, continuing dejectedly. “But that side branch lord that took to me, he’s three hundred years old! I’m only thirty…”
Yuan Chu’s smiling face stiffened for a moment. She silently choked down a mouthful of blood. The girl looked no older than fifteen. Turns out she was one of those beauty retaining pill eating liars? Fancy that she had wanted to introduce her to her little disciple!
But this girl was begging in front of her. It wouldn’t be much trouble to help her on the way; they were visiting the Zhou family anyway.
Thus, Yuan Chu nodded. “Don’t worry, I’m a disciple of Myriad Sword Sect. I come specifically to offer birthday felicitations to the Zhou family’s old ancestor, so you can leave it to me. I’ll put in a word for you. The Zhou family won’t trouble you anymore.”
The little girl… wait, no, Fang Die eyes shone at her words. The person in front of her was a disciple of Myriad Sword Sect, the head of the ten great sects! No wonder he was incomparably handsome with outstanding good looks!
Ye Chenyuan looked on gloomily. Particularly at that woman who insisted on following them to the Zhou family. Master had only spared a few words for her. Why did she insist on coming? She was clearing lusting over Master’s good looks!
On the low-profile flying spiritual tool, Ye Chenyuan couldn’t get used to Fang Die always talking to Yuan Chu. He concealed his emotions and dragged Fang Die into a conversation with him.
“Fairy Fang, that, the dual cultivation you just spoke of, what is it?”
Although it was to change the topic. Ye Chenyuan truly did not know what dual cultivation was. Before, when he was studying in the library pavilion, the dual cultivation techniques were placed on a high shelf. When he asked the old man overseeing the pavilion about them, the old man had seen that Ye Chenyuan was very young and told him those needed two people to cultivate and they weren’t very useful methods. Thus, dual cultivation was branded with “he couldn’t cultivate by himself” and “pretty useless, a waste of time if he read it”.
Who knew that, hearing Ye Chenyuan’s words, the round-cheeked girl’s face turned red!
Ye Chenyuan didn’t notice this change. Thinking of something, he frowned, asking, “And in dual cultivation dao companion, why is there a need to add the two words ‘dual cultivation’ in front of dao companion?”
Now, Fang Die’s face was so red it could be dripping blood.
Next to them, Yuan Chu was all fired up! See? Her disciple was starting to get things!
Thus, seeing Fang Die’s reluctance to answer, she immediately added, “Fairy Fang, tell him! This disciple of mine is still young. There are many things he doesn’t understand. And this kind of matter, it’s difficult for me to teach.”
Yuan Chu wore an incomparably handsome face of pleading. Fang Die was originally unwilling, but now, she agreed without a thought!
