Chapter 240: Xiao Bu Dian Has an Evil Tongue
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Even if it was their first meeting, it was only a casual one. Furthermore, they might not have recognized each other’s appearance clearly.
But if the time of cultivation in their own caves were considered, maybe they had not seen each other in more than ten years.
That was even though the appearances of both had experienced a huge change.
But both Xiao Yan and Murong Yanran still were able to recognize each other.
It was just that they were taken aback under such a situation. Murong Yanran and Xiao Yan were both embarrassed and awkward.
Xiao Yan had expected Murong Yanran to oversee Xingyun Peak, grandly awaiting his arrival.
Otherwise, he would have expected him to bring together the members of the Sword of Radiance Sect, intercepting him halfway and killing him. But he had never expected Murong Yanran to be in such an embarrassing state.
Xiao Bu Dian passed the Blue Cloud Horn Snake to Tuntun and approached forward, curiously asking, “Big Senior, are the both of you acquainted?”
Murong Yanran and Xiao Yan shouted in unison, “No!”
“Who are you trying to bluff?” Xiao Bu Dian looked at the two embarrassed individuals, twisted his lips and looked at Xiao Yan. “Big Senior, I am already 21 years old and not a little kid. Do not treat me like it is so easy to pacify, okay?”
Xiao Yan rolled his eyes and did not answer him.
Xiao Bu Dian looked at Murong Yanran with a smile on his face, “If I did not hear wrongly, I remember him calling your name.”
Murong Yanran’s face turned black, knowing that Xiao Bu Dian was acting foolish even though he obviously knew about it.
“So, you are Murong Yanran?” Xiao Bu Dian walked around her. “So, it was you who rejected my Big Senior. You have a special personality.”
As Murong Yanran was scrutinized by Xiao Bu Dian, she felt extremely embarrassed although Xiao Bu Dian was still a big child.
What made her more embarrassed was that Xiao Bu Dian was not appreciating her beauty, but curiously observing her like an animal.
“Although I am not a cultivator in the Aurous Core Stage, you are wrong if you think you can belittle me.” Murong Yanran calmed her nerves and said seriously, “Are the disciples of the
Celestial Sect of Wonders of such low upbringing?”
Xiao Bu Dian opened his eyes wide, as if he saw the most shocking thing on Earth, before laughing, “You cannot stand this already? When you dumped my Big Senior at Shazhou County, where did your upbringing go to?”
“Someone who humiliates others subjects herself to humiliation. What gives you any special rights?”
Murong Yanran went pale and she was silent.
Xiao Yan waved his hand in a distance and Xiao Bu Dian stopped talking. Xiao Yan stared at Murong Yanran, saying calmly, “Lady Murong, why are you here?”
“Travelling? It seems like you have forgotten that someone said before that he will go to Xingyun Peak to challenge you. Or you may have thought that the person will never appear?”
Murong Yanran took in a deep breath and raised her head to look at Xiao Yan, “I did not forget.
Since we have met today, let us fulfill our wager from before.”
As she was saying, she slapped the treasure gourd on her waist and a reddish fog surged out, masking her entire body. At the same time, the long sword at her waist was drawn and became a white radiance flashing in mid-space.
At this point, she already knew that Xiao Yan’s abilities were well over hers, but she was still determined to give it her all. Her pride and dignity did not allow her to back down in front of Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan looked at Murong Yanran without speaking, whereas Xiao Bu Dian laughed while looking at Murong Yanran, saying, “Middle stage of the Foundation Establishment Stage? You cannot overcome my Big Senior then.”
He turned his head to look at Xiao Yan, “Big Senior, let us return to where Master is. Let him create a Celestial Small World for the both of you to duel and let Master repress your cultivation.”
“There is no use repressing it to the Foundation Establishment Stage though. The disciples of the Celestial Sect of Wonders have invincible powers. If she wants to spar with you, Master must at least repress your cultivation to the Qi Cultivation Stage.”
Murong Yanran was enraged while Xiao Yan looked at Xiao Bu Dian expressionlessly.
Tuntun could care less about the Blue Cloud Horn Snake and looked at Xiao Bu Dian while shaking her head, thinking, “This little devil’s mouth is too evil already. If I was Murong Yanran, I have no other path to choose other than fight for my life. Otherwise, I will have no more face to show others.”
The problem was, the result will literally be death.
Murong Yanran took in a deep breath and threw all nonsensical thoughts to the back of her head. The long sword was lifted straight in front of her chest and she said in a deep voice, “Disciple of the Sword of Radiance Sect, Murong Yanran. Please advise.”
After she finished speaking, she suddenly saw that Xiao Yan and Xiao Bu Dian were both looking at each other. Xiao Bu Dian spoiled the moment by whining, “No more nice show for me to see.”
Before Murong Yanran even reacted, a streak of purple gas suddenly broke through space and dragged her away. After that, she lost her consciousness.
Lin Feng’s voice resonated from space, “Xiao Yan, do not rush to make a move. This girl could have secretly escaped from the Sword of Radiance Sect.”
Xiao Yan and Xiao Bu Dian were both stunned. Xiao Yan laughed, “What is the Sword of Radiance Sect doing?”
Xiao Bu Dian revealed a smile again, “This seems even more fun.”
Lin Feng answered quietly, “Just act like you did not see this girl. We will go to Xingyun Peak as planned. When we are there, we will see what games they are trying to play.”
Xiao Bu Dian and Xiao Yan agreed. Xiao Yan dazed in his position, while Xiao Bu Dian’s attention was quickly shifted to the Blue Cloud Horn Snake that was with Tuntun.
Although Murong Yanran was dragged away by Lin Feng’s powers, she awoke after a while. As she opened her eyes, she saw a young man in a purple robe looking at her quietly.
She could not feel any sense of stature or vibration of mana on the young man, but she was still frightened. She felt that the person in front was stronger than her elder, the Azure Clouds
Grandmaster, by multiple times.
Murong Yanran had only seen this person for the first time in her life. The only time she felt the same feeling was when she visited the leader of the Sword of Radiance Sect.
The oppression of the Sword of Radiance Sect was more straightforward, but it was not as composed as the person in front of her.
Lin Feng looked at Murong Yanran with interest and he had something he really wanted to tell Murong Yanran.
“Lady, thanks for nurturing Xiao Yan for me. You are such a nice person!”
Murong Yanran looked at Lin Feng and felt that he looked familiar, but could not recall where she saw him.
Lin Feng looked at Murong Yanran’s perplexed expression and could not refrain from smiling. He knew what she was perplexed about.
Strictly speaking, they had both met once before.
Lin Feng learned from her the existence of Xiao Yan.
At that time, the gravely injured Long Ye possessed a peach tree, posing a threat to the Shi villagers and Xiao Bu Dian. A fledgling Lin Feng was only in the Qi Cultivation Stage. To save Xiao Bu Dian, he scammed Murong Yanran and her sect members to deal with Long Ye.
Lin Feng of the past and present was different. After staying in the Heavenly Cosmic Ray World for eight years, besides the changes in appearance, his stature and temperament had both changed.
To a bystander, it would be like there were two different individuals.
Murong Yanran thought that he was very familiar. This was all thanks to the fact that she had already started cultivating mantras, which made her spiritually enhanced, enabling her to retain some of the memories.
Lin Feng used his mind to summon the Purple Clouds to influence Murong Yanran’s senses, wiping off her faint memories of Lin Feng.
Murong Yanran did not realize this and only felt a little faint-headed. After regaining her senses, she looked at Lin Feng and did not realize anything amiss. Although it was a little weird, she could only take it as she had recalled wrongly.
She looked at Lin Feng, asking politely, “Elder, may I ask who you are…”
“I am the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders, Lin Feng.” Lin Feng answered, “You are Murong Yanran, a disciple of the Sword of Radiance Sect who had a wager with my disciple Xiao Yan?”
Murong Yanran smiled bitterly while nodding her head, bowing and greeting, “Murong Yanran is honored to meet the leader of Celestial Sect of Wonders.”
Lin Feng asked, “What do you feel upon meeting Xiao Yan?”
Murong Yanran went pale, pursing her lips and asked softly, “I was young and reckless and suggested a foolish method to reject the marriage. I did not realize then, but when I grew older and thought about the matter, I realize that I have caused Xiao Yan and his family much embarrassment.”
“Regarding this, I am extremely apologetic. But I do not regret rejecting the marriage. Now that Xiao Yan’s cultivation has far exceeded mine, it is all due to his destiny and achievements. I am not jealous. I will make the decisions regarding my marriage and I will not regret them.”
The expression on Lin Feng’s face did not change, but he muttered silently, “Do not say this, little
girl. His achievements are partly your credit.”
Murong Yanran looked at the emotionless Lin Feng, slowly bowing, “The promise we made in the past was that if I lose in the hands of Xiao Yan, I am willing to be a slave or a maid. However, I am unable to fulfill this wager now. My family and sect will not be able to accept such a result.”
“Anyway, in Xiao Yan’s eyes, I am just a thick-skinned person. Let me just be thick-skinned once more. The mistake that I had made in the past, I am willing to use my life to pay for it. But if you want me to be a slave or a maid, I am unable to do it.”
Lin Feng looked at her but did not reply. On the other hand, he said, “Oh yes, the Azure Clouds Grandmaster from the Sword of Radiance Sect, is he your elder?”
Murong Yanran trembled in shock, before hearing Lin Feng continuing his words, “He is now three hundred miles south from here. According to him, he is here to welcome me on my journey to the Sword of Radiance Sect at Xingyun Peak.”
“But now it seems like he is here to find you?”
Murong Yanran trembled again, lowering her head. After a while, she said softly, “I do not know why he is here. I had only gone out for traveling purposes and I am preparing to return to the Sword of Radiance Sect.”
Lin Feng laughed, “Oh, that is just nice. I will call him over and you can go with him.”
Murong Yanran did not know what to say and her body just trembled vigorously.
Lin Feng looked at her and suddenly asked, “Why did you secretly escape from the Sword of Radiance Sect? According to what you said previously, you did not plan to avoid the battle with Xiao Yan.”
