Chapter 233: An Unworldly and Handsome Man Appears
“You can count on me, Junior,” Qiao Shaohua replied with confidence.
Although Yue Lingjun was arrogant, willful, and unpleasant looking, on account of Patriarch Lingyun, he had to appease her.
“Hurry!” Yue Lingjun became anxious when she saw Lin Yanxi standing nearby, looking tempted to own a Legendary Venomous Insect.
Lin Yanxi was a disciple of the Tianxiang Sect. The foul-smelling men who wanted to fawn over her would surely fight to obtain the remaining two Legendary Venomous Insects.
“My turn.” Qiao Shaohua pushed his way in front of Ye Jiuge.
Ye Jiuge shrugged and pushed over the box.
Qiao Shaohua copied the previous person and poked his finger into the box, but his finger was immediately refused.
“Unfortunately, you do not fulfill the requirements to become a Master of a Legendary Venomous Insect. Next.” Ye Jiuge ignored Qiao Shaohua’s disappointed expression and moved away with the box.
“Hold on!” Qiao Shaohua was unable to accept the fact that the Legendary Venomous Insects had rejected him. He wanted to argue with Ye Jiuge but was pushed aside by a tall, thin and dapper youth.
Qiao Shaohua had not yet begun his proper objection when Yue Lingjun hollered in exasperation, “Wang Haoqiang, why are you in such a rush?”
“There are so many people waiting. If everyone were as long-winded as you two, when would we ever finish?” Wang Haoqiang tossed a side-glance of disdain at Yue Lingjun.
Her features were so pathetic, yet she had the boldness to holler at the top of her lungs. Did she think that Patriarch Lingyun’s name was matchless?
The Qiqiao Sect was not afraid of the Danyang Sect.
“Bah! You do not have any intention of using the Legendary Venomous Insect for yourself. You are only hoping to use it to flirt,” Yue Lingjun spat harshly.
“Tch, that is none of your business.” Wang Haoqiang did not care whether his intentions were exposed.
Just now, he had grown jealous when he saw how Baili Moyun had become so popular among the female Spiritual Practitioners because of his small bird parasite.
When his crush, Lin Yanxi, hadn’t stopped cooing over the little bird parasite, it had strengthened his resolve to get his hands on one.
“Please insert your finger here,” Ye Jiuge continued as if she were unaware of their squabbles. She remained calm and indifferent.
Wang Haoqiang made a show of raising his finger high, then stuck it into the box fiercely and repeated in his heart continuously, “Bite me, bite me!”
But his finger was rejected even faster than Qiao Shaohua’s.
“Unfortunately, you do not fulfill the requirements to become a Master of a Legendary Venomous Insect. Next,” Ye Jiuge repeated her rejection line.
“Impossible! Are these Legendary Venomous Insects stupid? They didn’t even recognize me.” Wang Haoqiang was in disbelief.
“Strength! That’s real strength!” Baili Moyun laughed boastfully, then turned to the stone-faced, dashing man beside him. He prodded him in the waist in encouragement. “A’li, have a go!”
A’li, or Nangong Li, was the core disciple of the Ziyun Sect. He was also Baili Moyun’s best friend.
“Next!” Ye Jiuge walked straight toward Nangong Li.
Nangong Li frowned. He was not keen to participate.
“Give it a try!” Baili Moyun kept urging.
Nangong Li was annoyed by Baili Moyun until he couldn’t take it anymore, then he carelessly stuck his finger into the box.
“Did you get one?” Baili Moyun was more nervous than Nangong Li.
“Yes.” Nangong Li nodded. The look he gave Ye Jiuge was deep and complicated, but he did not say much.
“Quick, take a look. Which Legendary Venomous Insect did you get?” Baili Moyun pulled Nangong Li’s finger out of the box.
Another black speck burrowed out of the box. When it came out of its cocoon on Nangong Li’s arm, it took the form of a hawk with a black body and blood-red eyes.
The thumb-sized hawk was a combination of awe and adorableness, and it caused the female Spiritual Practitioners to scream.
“Yours isn’t too bad, after all!” Baili Moyun sighed in surprise.
Although, he still preferred his own Xiao Tao.
“Yes!” Nangong Li had worried that the Legendary Venomous Insect would be slightly feminine looking, so he was relieved after seeing the hawk.
“There’s only one remaining.” Ye Jiuge raised the box high and asked, “Who else wants to try?”
“You try, Honglei.” Baili Moyun dragged Gong Honglei over hurriedly and forced his finger into the box.
“You!” Gong Honglei looked at Baili Moyun with exasperation.
There were only so many Legendary Venomous Insects available. He had never thought about participating in the selection.
“You got this,” Baili Moyun called out knowingly based on his previous experience.
The last Legendary Venomous Insect had already hatched. It was a jade-green praying mantis that looked rather impressive.
“Haha! That suits you,” Baili Moyun couldn’t help but laugh.
Gong Honglei’s personality was rash and overwhelming, and he often rushed headlong into a situation without being able to stop, just like a praying mantis. This Legendary Venomous Insect complemented him very well.
“It seems like the Legendary Venomous Insects take an image that is pleasing to their Master,” Gong Xifan laughed.
“That’s right. Pleasing their Master also represents their pledge of allegiance.” Ye Jiuge took this opportunity to boast about the insects’ intelligence, just in case Gong Xifan thought they had lost out in the deal.
“These three insecys are useless. Who can really know for sure whether they really sought their Masters themselves? It’s obvious that you’ve manipulated the whole thing,” Wang Haoqiang accused while screaming, and his words incited the rest of the unsuccessful Spiritual Practitioners to agree with him.
“I was curious as to why Great Master Gong would be so protective of her. It’s no wonder. Someone is very good at sucking up. We should learn from that someone!” Yue Lingjun said sarcastically, and her words received quite a bit of agreement and support.
The Spiritual Practitioners were all from the various large and famous sects. They were not happy or satisfied with the leader, Gong Xifan, in whom they saw the person obstructing their Senior’s path.
While they did not dare voice their views aloud, secretly agreeing with a dissident was alright with them.
Ye Jiuge treated Yue Lingjun’s sarcasm like a dog barking.
This was Gong Xifan’s territory. It wasn’t her place to garner too much attention.
In the end, Gong Xifan had yet to open his mouth when a clear voice rang out from behind Ye Jiuge: “Intelligent things should be paired with capable people. What right do losers have to question?”
“Who’s there?” Yue Lingjun’s eyes bulged as she stared in Ye Jiuge’s direction, and she saw an unworldly, handsome man.
His hair brushed his eyebrows, and he had glittering black eyes, a high nose, and a flushed face that was very seductive and tempting.
Just standing near him made one feel like they were in the presence of a true king.
Yue Lingjun’s heart pounded.
She had seen her fair share of beautiful men in the Danyang Sect. But they all paled in comparison to the man in front of her.
For a moment, it seemed like the whole world turned dim and dark, and he was the only glittering light in the abyss.
When had such an unworldly handsome man appeared? She hadn’t even realized it, which seemed impossible.
Many others shared Yue Lingjun’s thoughts, and all the female Spiritual Practitioners couldn’t take their eyes off the man.
Meanwhile, the male Spiritual Practitioners saw the man as an enemy. They had also failed to notice the arrival of such an unworldly, handsome man.
It was like he had appeared only after he’d spoken.
“What are you doing?” Ye Jiuge was very frustrated with Zi Shang—seducing people wherever he went. Was he so worried that others wouldn’t see how handsome he was?
“I’m teaching these losers to know their place, of course.” Zi Shang was very serious.
A demon teaching a human their place—was he kidding? Ye Jiuge glared at Zi Shang harshly, ordering in a low tone, “Go away. Don’t create trouble for me.”
Unfortunately, in such a situation, it would be impossible for Zi Shang to go away even if he wanted to. Gong Xifan had already looked over.
