Realms In The Firmament - Chapter 240
Chapter 240 - I Want A Fight
The only thing that was like a blemish in an otherwise perfect thing was that Bing-Er hadn't recovered any of her memory. Sometimes, when she was about to remember something and she thought about it, she would suffer a headache.
Ye Xiao couldn't do anything about it.
It was the auction the next day.
All the renowned forces were in the capital. All that had received the invitation from the Ling-Bao Hall had come.
There was a rather surprising thing that had happened recently.
The Room Tian No.1 was booked.
Everybody knew that it was the most luxurious and valuable room in the Ling-Bao Hall. Only the most powerful and wealthiest man could sit inside that room. It was something known by all people.
The surprising point was that nobody knew who had booked it this time.
Even Ye Xiao didn't know it.
Only Wan Zheng-Hao knew.
That was the rule of the auction. Besides, Ye Xiao hadn't been to the salesroom yet, so he didn't have the time to ask Wan Zheng-Hao.
No matter what, it was certain that... whoever booked this room must be some extraordinary figure that nobody dared to ignore!
Whoever booked it should have a position higher than the royal family, the noble clans and the great sects!
Otherwise, Wan Zheng-Hao wouldn't keep it a secret like this. Even though he wanted to, he wouldn't dare.
Wan Zheng-Hao had planned to discuss it with Ye Xiao though. For ten days, Ye Xiao hadn't stepped into the Ling-Bao Hall even once. So Wan Zheng-Hao didn't have the chance to tell him!
The reason why Ye Xiao hadn't come to the Ling-Bao Hall for so long was that he was under a rather embarrassing situation...
Bing-Er was finally able to move. Even though her bones were still damaged, she could already manage to finish some of her own private business.
It was painful for her though. However, the sense of shame that every girl was born with made her want to refuse Ye Xiao's help as soon as possible.
’’When I get better, I will serve you well... You are not the kind that serves people...’’ Bing-Er said with a red face.
Ye Xiao had to give in.
Even though he didn't want to stop doing it, he didn't have a good reason to object.
In order to release Bing-Er from pain, he went out to get some Bone Connecting Grass. He had bought nearly all the medical materials in every medicine store in the capital. As the auction was about to launch, the replenishment of the medical stores was quick. It was the day one of those stores had promised Ye Xiao that they would get the medical materials he wanted.
Just a second after he got the Bone Connecting Grass, Wen-Ren Chu-Chu got him, ’’Come with me!’’
Ye Xiao rubbed his nose.
Feeling her killing intent that was cold like the blue moon, as well as her pride like freezing ice, Ye Xiao could only sigh. Holding the grass, he followed Wen-Ren Chu-Chu away.
He had to go because he was facing a girl who was 'on fire'!
However, under the suppression of the two ladies, he could feel belligerence inside him rising up. There was a place inside his body that was ready to do something.
He was shocked.
’’Master Feng.’’ Bing Xin-Yue was still in a dress which was white like snow. She was cold and prideful, ’’Don't be offended if we are inviting you the wrong way.’’
Ye Xiao rubbed his nose again and smiled, ’’No. It is truly a beautiful thing that two pretty ladies invited me. I longed for it.’’ So he said, but he thought, [The wrong way? Your disciple almost kidnapped me, yet I can't be offended? I do! I really do. So what?
I am not strong enough at the moment, but it is never too late for revenge. Let me just stay calm about this then. When I get over you two, I will let you know what 'a vile person that will take revenge all the time' is. I am not a vile person though. But I will take my revenge all the time, twenty-four hours a day! What about that!]
He was imagining something he felt good about, but on his face, there was still a big smile. He looked totally fine about everything.
Bing Xin-Yue was hesitant. She looked at Ye Xiao and didn't speak a word.
Ye Xiao was looking back at her with the appearance of Feng Zhi-Ling. He was acting humble and honest. He didn't talk either.
They just looked at each other for a long time. Nobody knew what they were thinking about. Things became silent all of a sudden.
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was beside them. Suddenly, she turned mad and shouted angrily, ’’Why don't you talk?’’
The angry shout was apparently towards Ye Xiao. Looking at Ye Xiao and her master look at each other for a long time, she was mad for no apparent reason.
Well, they kept looking at each other... For Wen-Ren Chu-Chu, maybe there would be something special in their sights...
Ye Xiao was wronged and he said, ’’You dragged me here without saying anything. I have yet to find a clue why you brought me here, what do you want me to say? How am I supposed to know what to say?’’
And then he acted like he was enlightened. He talked to Wen-Ren Chu-Chu, ’’Oh right. Lady Wen-Ren, you look so pretty today.’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was stunned. That was so sudden. And then she actually felt a bit happy in her mind. Her face blushed and she couldn't help answering, ’’Do I?’’
Ye Xiao nodded honestly and said, ’’Of course. Your skin looks whiter than before. You must have put on weight again.’’ He nodded and said with appreciation and certainty, ’’You must be. Good to be overweight! Good to be...’’
The way he looked and the way he talked was like he was looking at a pig that he raised himself. It was like he suddenly found out that his pig had grown bigger. That was joyful though. Like he was saying, 'Ah finally, you get fat. A little bit fatter and I can sell you for some money...'
’’You!’’ Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was so angry that her face turned pale. She gritted with her teeth while looking at Ye Xiao fiercely. She looked like she wanted to swallow him whole.
Ye Xiao nodded seriously, ’’I am always an honest man. Look at your waist, it got bigger. Not much, but... Hmm. What a shame... It would be great if it got bigger.’’
He talked with a sense of pity. It showed that he was unsatisfied with her waist not being big enough!
’’I will punch you to death!’’ Wen-Ren Chu-Chu couldn't stand it anymore. She rushed over and started beating him up.
Ye Xiao kept teasing her because he wanted a fight. Now he got what he wanted, so he surely wouldn't run away from it. Facing the fierce attack from Wen-Ren Chu-Chu, he fought back at once. Instantly, they became two masses of whirlwinds rolling from east to west and south to north in the yard.
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu kept her face cold and dark. The fire of anger was burning like hell inside her heart. She was just too furious, so she didn't hold back on her attacks.
[Asshole! I am less than 50 kilograms! How can I be fat? I haven't really eaten anything for several days. How is it possible that my waist got big? And you actually said that it should get bigger! How dare you!’’
