“Junior-martial brother Soi, junior-martial brother Soi!” Zhu Yao was suddenly nudged by the person next to her, and only then did she regain her senses.
“What ‘Ah?’ It’s your turn, hurry and take it out.”
Zhu Yao was startled, and asked in reflex. “Take out what?”
Zi Dan laughed out loud, slapped on her shoulder, and quipped. “You can’t have rushed over here too quickly, and have forgotten to bring a greeting gift for your little niece, right?”
Only then did Zhu Yao realize, that everyone present, had took out either mystic tool or spiritual pellet related items, and handed them to the child’s mother. These were considered as greeting gifts, and even Wang Xuzhi had passed her a spiritual sword.
Zhu Yao gave a face. She really did not know she had to prepare a gift. Turning her to glance, she glanced at the little baby girl who was still in someone’s embrace, and the three letters on her face were still causing her to feel irritated. Suddenly, an idea came to mind.
Turning around, she looked at Zi Mo in the eyes, and said. “Hoho, senior-martial brother. I really have forgotten to bring a greeting gift, however, the moment I see this little niece of mind, I exceptionally… like her. Why don’t I take her as my disciple then?”
No matter what kind of BUG this little girl was, right now, she was just a baby who had just been born. The reason why Xiao Yi would bring the Five Spirits away, causing the apocalypse, was because of the experiences when he was young, which caused his three views to be distorted ever since he was young, and could not be reformed. However, this child was still young, she could completely bring her up from young, and have her become a kind person.
“Uh, this…” Zi Mo hesitated a little.
“You sure came up with a great idea!” Hong Chou from the side suddenly cut in, snorting lightly. “You did not even bring a greeting gift, yet, you still wish to take away their daughter. Senior-martial brother, do not listen to him. I see that I have a better compatibility with your daughter, why don’t she become a disciple of mine?”
Zhu Yao turned her head and stared at her. You damnable lolicon.
Hong Chou stared back at him. Miser who did not even bring a greeting gift.
Zi Mo looked at the two forceful people back and forth, and was hard pressed for a moment. He never planned on letting her daughter have a master. And, both him and his wife were Nascent Soul practitioners, so why must his daughter take someone else as her master!?
In the end, Zi Mo could only evade the topic by saying that his child was still young, and the matter could only be discussed after testing her spirit veins. Then, he chased the two of them out.
After returning, Zhu Yao, however, could not calm down. She had yet to deal with Xiao Yi, yet now, another one popped up. She was really being treated as a GM, huh? With so many bugs around, how could she fix them all?
After that day, Zhu Yao had gone to Sword Peak to see the little girl for a couple of times. Although she would always encounter that lolicon Hong Chou, she had confirmed it, the exact same letters, BUG, were really written on the face of the little child. The only difference was, the one she saw back then on Xiao Yi was much deeper. And, that yellow exclamation mark did not appear above the little girl’s head. Did this prove that she could still be reformed?
She believed that there was no bad people from birth. However, the main point was, how would she reform her?
“Big sis Zhu Yao, are you here?” From afar, she could hear little wimp’s voice.
When she opened the door, he had once again entered with a big stack of documents. After knowing that she wished to take his own daughter as her disciple, Zi Mo enslaving her had become even more justifiable.
Hence, her enslaving little wimp had become even more natural as well.
Wang Xuzhi looked as though he had been born to do great things. The big and small matters between the various Peaks, caused her head to ache, yet, he was able to manage each and every one of them smoothly.
This was something she had to praise him for.
“Why did you come here so late in the night?” Zhu Yao took the documents from his hands, and placed them on the table. “You could have sent them over tomorrow.”
“I was afraid that you might be in an urgent need for them.” Little wimp smiled. Habitually, he poured a cup of tea for her, and then, poured one for himself. “Big sis Zhu Yao, did you just return from Sword Peak?”
He shook his head. “Big sis Zhu Yao, you should just give up. Master only has this one treasured daughter after so many years, furthermore, master-aunt risked the danger of losing her cultivation just to give birth to little junior-martial sister, so how would they allow their own daughter to take someone else as her master?”
Zhu Yao rolled her eyes at him. What did this little wimp know? She did not want to bring up their child for them either. Didn’t she have no other choice? And, there was something she was more worried about. Back then when she saw Xiao Yi’s BUG, she had that precognitive dream. Now, even though she had slept every day, she was unable to dream of the matters concerning the Sect Master’s daughter.
Seeing that she was still not giving up, Wang Xuzhi sighed. Drinking a sip of his tea, he suddenly recalled something, and asked. “Oh right, big sis Zhu Yao. Why did you deactivate all of the prohibition formations at the entrance? Did something happen?”
“Prohibition? I didn’t deactivate them.” Zhu Yao was startled, as she made eye contact with him.
Then, who deactivated them?
Her heart tightened, and just when she was about to stand up and take a look, a cloud of black smoke suddenly flew over. Zhu Yao hurriedly set up a defensive formation, yet, she was still a step too late, and was struck by that black smoke.
Wang Xuzhi fainted instantly at that moment.
“Little wimp!” Zhu Yao became anxious. Just when she was about to circulate her spiritual energy, she felt a pain at her chest. The mystic powers in her entire body, seemed to have been completely sealed, and could not be released.
“We meet again.” A dark female voice rang next to her ears, and then, she was struck with a palm at the back.
In the next instant, she sank into a state of unconsciousness.
It was Rui Yu!
When Zhu Yao woke up, she was at a dark place. Her four limbs were being restrained by talisman chains, and she was being hanged above a huge black pool. That pool was exactly the same as the pool used to refine demonic beasts she saw at the underground city. The only difference was that the pool before were refining the remains of demonic beasts, while the pool now was floating with human bones.
At that moment, Zhu Yao felt creeped out, and just when she was thinking of struggling, she realized that her mystic powers were sealed, even her four limbs were stiffened a little abnormally. It seemed like someone had casted an art on her.
“Yo, seems like you’re awake?” Rui Yu suddenly appeared in front of her. Stationing herself in the air, her smile was extremely bewitching, as she pointed to the surroundings. “This is a prison designed especially for you, how is it?”
“It’s you!” Rui Yu? Why did she capture her?
“Seems like you remembered me.”
“Why did you capture me?”
Rui Yu laughed, and then, suddenly, gave her a tight slap. “Why? After how you plotted against my Xiao honey, shouldn’t I capture you?”
Plotted against? She’s talking about how she helped to matchmake Xiao Yi and Ling Long?
“I arranged a very good marriage for him, how could you say it’s a plot?” The hell. You captured the wrong person, right? If you have to capture someone, it should be Xiao Yi, shouldn’t it?
Rui Yu’s expression turned cold, raising her hand, she gave her another slap. “Don’t play with my mind, I will never believe it. I have never suspected Xiao Yi’s feelings for me. If you’re the least bit sensible, then take out your treasures. Otherwise…”
Zhu Yao was startled. “What treasures?”
Rui Yu frowned, reaching her hands out, she cast an art. At that moment, Zhu Yao felt as though her entire body was exposed to intense flames, her entire body even began to spasm from the pain.
“It doesn’t matter if you don’t speak.” Rui Yu laughed coldly. “In any case, I have all the time in the world to get you to speak.”
After she said that, she disappeared. As for Zhu Yao, she fainted from the pain.
Ever since then, she would come over every day to ask that question. If she did not get an answer, she would torture Zhu Yao. Sometimes, it was flames. Sometimes, it was lightning. Sometimes, it was ice. The punishment meted out every day was different.
And her cultivation just had to be completely suppressed, and she was completely unable to resist at all. If she had not once experienced the pain of a shattered Azoth Core, she would have already turned crazy from the torture.
When Rui Yu appeared before her for the eleventh time, and was about to torture her, she finally could not help but curse out.
“Xiao Yi, you motherf***ing coward, you have the guts to capture me, but not to appear before me?”
Rui Yu paused for moment, a hint of fluster instantly flashed past her face, and then, she immediately recovered. “What are you blabbering about? I’m the one who captured you, what does this have to do with him?”
“Do you think I’m motherf***ing stupid!?” Zhu Yao rolled her eyes at her. “Without an insider, how would you, a single heretic practitioner, dare to infiltrate Ancient Hill Sect?” In these ten days, she finally understood, why the formation at her courtyard would deactivate by itself. And at that same moment, Rui Yu suddenly appeared in her room.
“Hmph, you’re rather smart.” A white figure revealed himself beside Rui Yu, and as expected, it was Xiao Yi. “No wonder you’re able to plot against me every single time.”
“Are you crazy? What did I plot against you?” Zhu Yao was even about to curse his mom. She saved him for so many times, why did they all turn into plots?
“Stop acting!” Xiao Yi’s expression turned cold, as he said, emphasizing on every single word. “Senior. Martial. Aunt. Zhu. Yao.”
Zhu Yao was stunned. The hell, how did he know about it?
“Are you wondering why I knew about it?” Xiao Yi snorted. “If I did not happen to hear Wang Xuzhi call out your name, I really wouldn’t have known, you’re actually Zhu Yao, the personal succeeding disciple of Sovereign Yu Yan, who should have died a hundred years ago.”
Zhu Yao turned solemn. She knew she should not have told little wimp the truth. Although he would always call her ‘Elder’ whenever someone else was around, in private, he would still call her big sis ‘Zhu Yao’. But just when did Xiao Yi hear it?
“The matter about you taking over someone’s body doesn’t concern me, but you definitely shouldn’t have plotted against me every single time.”
“Stop!” The more Zhu Yao listened, the more confused she became. “I have never… Taking over a body, and plotting against you, is there even any relations between them at all?”
The hatred in Xiao Yi’s eyes deepened. “Don’t think I don’t know how you despicably stole my Wood Spirit and Water Spirit from my hands.”
Zhu Yao frowned. As expected, he had already known the matters concerning the Wood Spirit and Water Spirit. But…
“Wait a minute? Stolen from your hands?” Just where did that come from?
“Do you really think you could have done everything seamlessly?” Xiao Yi’s face was filled with resentment. “That old man who saved me from the secret realm, had long told me of your matters. It was just that my cultivation back then was still shallow, and I did not know that girl was actually metamorphosed by you as well.”
“Then, did he tell you this? Back then when your Azoth Core went berserk, I was the one who suppressed it. Otherwise, you would have already died from trying to maintain your Azoth Core.” At that moment, Zhu Yao felt it was a little funny. “Also, you said I stole them from you. Were the Wood Spirit and Water Spirit ever in your hands? Or are you saying that your name is written on them somewhere?”
Xiao Yi was speechless for a moment, his embarrassment turned to rage, as he said. “Stop denying it. In any case, no matter what, I will never forgive you.”
“Who’s the one denying it!? Xiao Yi, do you even have brains at all!? Can you actually think logically!?”
“Shut up.” Xiao Yi once again tortured her, stopping her words. “There’s no point in speaking any further. If you don’t hand me the Wood Spirit, Water Spirit, and your body-takeover exotic treasure today, I will never let you off.”
In the end, aren’t all these just for your own benefits? Zhu Yao coldly laughed. She wanted to roll on the ground from the pain, however, she was firmly tied.
