Chapter 174: Spatial Mahjong Competition
Zhu Yao really never expected to see her former avatar so soon. That’s right, what her master picked up was that piece of divine jade with a dimensional space within it. Mo Xianxian’s biggest cheat. Other than missing half of its body, the rest looked exactly the same.
Returning to Dawnfall Peak, Yu Yan cast an art, encompassing the divine jade he picked up with a barrier-like isolation divine technique.
“What happened?” Yu Yan solemnly asked.
“I don’t know either.” Zhu Yao glanced at that piece of jade. “I don’t know which wrong train Mo Xianxian got onto, but she wanted to kill me no matter what.” Zhu Yao hence explained to her master everything about the bug this time, along with what she had seen from her precognitive dream.
“I think that she must have hidden herself in the dimensional space within the jade.” She must had thought that this was a foolproof plan, after all, in a huge fire like that, who would notice such a regular piece of jade? Even if it was seen, no one would think that there’s actually another universe within it. Unfortunately, out of anyone whom she could have entered the dimensional space in front of, she just had to do it in front of Zhu Yao. Should she be seen as unlucky, or even more unlucky?
“Master, is there any way to let her out?”
Yu Yan turned his head, and looked at her strangely.
“I want to talk to her.” Ultimately, Mo Xianxian was a pitiful person as well. She was once the pride of the heavens, revered by the people in the Lower Realm. With all of her might, she finally managed to ascend to the Higher Realm, all for the sake of finding her own husband to pursue their former destinies. In the end, she found him, but the love had already disappeared.
However, on the day of the practitioner-pair ceremony, clearly, she had already completely given up on Xu Nuoyan, so why did her attitude change once again? Did someone tell her something? Or could it be that she was still unwilling to see things clearly, and hence, wanted to vent all of the wrongs and faults on Zhu Yao?
“Are you certain?” Yu Yan frowned. According to his ideology, an enemy must be eliminated, so as to avoid future troubles from occurring. Since that woman actually dared to make a move, then she should have the resolve to die.
“Mn.” Zhu Yao nodded. “Master, do you know a way?”
Yu Yan turned to look at the divine jade on the table, and only spoke after a while. “Back then, when I was inside, the void-shattering formation had already been completed to a large extent, if it’s activated from the outside…” Yu Yan hurriedly cast an art, and then, slashed his hand towards the void, causing a bright light to flash in mid-air.
Space twisted, and a white tear expanded towards the two sides. Faintly, the mountains and rivers on the other side could be seen.
Suddenly, a blue figure flew out. Zhu Yao was about to make a move to stop Mo Xianxian, however, she suddenly heard a furious roar.
“I’m going to kill you!” It was actually a male voice.
Zhu Yao was startled. The hell, her master did not inform her that this passage was linked to Thailand though? Why did her gender change?
That person was dressed in a blue robe, and had a burly figure. His entire body was filled with rich muscles that could not even be covered by the robe he was wearing, and that face…
“Goudan!” Why was it him!?
“How do you know my name?” The man blanked, and even the sword he was striking towards her with had stopped for a moment, before he immediately regained his senses. “No, that’s not it! This daddy here will slice up the bastard for bullying little sister Xianxian!”
You think you alone have what it takes!? Zhu Yao rolled her eyes at him, as she dodged to the side. With a swing towards his forehead, she sent a slap right towards it. In an instant, he was crawling on the ground. Then, she cast a binding art to fixate him onto where he was. “It’s been a few months since we last met, and your guts seemed to have fattened up, huh?”
With cultivation level lower than an Earth Deity, he actually dared to stand up for someone else. Just where did he get his confidence from?
“Release me!” Goudan fumed as he struggled for a few times. “If you have the guts, then fight me fair and square!”
“…” Didn’t he launch a sneak attack against her just earlier?
Zhu Yao’s head ached a little. How could she have forgotten that Goudan had bound that dimensional space back then as well? So, it was very normal for him to be able to enter the space, and this guy seemed to still harbour some feelings for Mo Xianxian. But in that precognitive dream, he basically wasn’t mentioned at all! Could it be that the timeline had already strayed off since the very beginning?
“You shameless soft egg, if you have the guts, then release me.” Goudan still continued to curse out.
Zhu Yao could not help but kick him. This lady here has yet to ask you about the benefits you obtained, and you dare to cuss at me? “Why aren’t you cultivating in Advent Cloud Palace, but instead, hiding in the dimensional space? Where’s Mushmush?”
“Hmph!” Goudan snorted very strongly. “Don’t think that just because you’re acting all familiar with me, I will forgive you. Let me tell you this. Bullying Xianxian is the same as bullying me! I will never forgive… Aiyaaaaa, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts… my ears, my ears!”
Zhu Yao pulled his ears, and did various twists and turns. “Are you going to speak, or not?”
“I will speak, I will speak, I will speak…” Goudan submitted in a second. The moment Zhu Yao relaxed her fingers, he weakly glanced at Zhu Yao. “Let me get up first.”
Zhu Yao released the binding art on his body. “Speak, how did you get entangled with Mo Xianxian?”
Goudan rubbed his own arm, and his eyes rolled to the left and right. Glancing at Zhu Yao, a small arc was made at the corner of his lips, looking as though he was about to do something bad at any moment. As expected, immediately after, he pointed outside and loudly said. “Wow, there’s a tiger outside.”
Zhu Yao stood as still as a mountain.
“Really, there’s a huge tiger outside.”
Zhu Yao did not make a single budge.
“I’m… I’m not lying. Take a look yourself.”
Zhu Yao continued to look at him.
“You must believe… believe me. I don’t lie.”
Zhu Yao stared ruthlessly at him.
“Look, another one came.”
“…” Zhu Yao’s expression darkened, as she let out a long sigh. “You dropped your purse.”
“Ah!” Goudan immediately lowered his head to look for his money pouch.
Zhu Yao sent her slaps straight towards him, and his head was instantly filled with bulges. “If you want to lie, you must first pick up the skill properly, alright? Nonsense such as tigers appearing, is something a three-year-old wouldn’t believe even if you told him about it! You might as well say an UFO appeared.” When this guy was born, his intelligence must have been thrown away along with umbilical cord, right!?
“Stop, stop! Stop hitting, stop hitting…” Goudan dodged in an embarrassing manner. Like a mouse being beaten, he once again squatted back down onto the ground.
“Speak. When did you enter the dimensional space?”
“What does this have to do with you? That dimensional space was mine to begin with. As long as I wish for it, I can enter it at any moment.” Goudan’s shame seemed to have turned into anger, as he immediately picked up the sword on the ground, leapt a step back, and summoned a golden sword intent. The sword intent seemed to carry an imposing aura. “Hmph. You vile woman who bullies others, don’t think I’m afraid of you. In this world, other than the great deity inside that dimensional space in the past, who had since disappeared, I, Goudan, hasn’t feared anyone else. Die!”
The great deity who disappeared? Zhu Yao was stunned for a moment. Turning her head, she looked towards a certain master who had been simply watching the show at the side the entire time, and pointed. “Are you referring to him?”
Goudan unconsciously turned his head, and his eyes suddenly widened. With a face that looked as though he was being struck by lightning, his hands shivered, and the golden sword intent which carried the condensation of his entire divine energy whizzed uncontrollably towards Zhu Yao.
Why was the great deity within the dimensional space here? This wasn’t logical!
Yu Yan frowned. In the next moment, the immense pressure of a High Deity pressed towards Goudan. His sword intent shattered resoundingly, while he was slammed heavily towards the ground as well, puking out three liters of blood. As expected, this great deity was an eternal nightmare in Goudan’s ‘arrow’ life.
Yu Yan was furious. This person sure had the guts to assault his disciple right in front of him. With a twist of his wrist, a heavenly lightning bolt was just about to strike towards Goudan.
“Stop!” The air once again began to twist, and a pinkish figure descended from the sky. Zhu Yao’s eyes shone. Mo Xianxian finally decided to co-
Little bitch!? Why was it her?
And just where did she pop out from, hey?
Tao Manfeng blocked in front of Goudan, and though the sword in her hand was slightly trembling, she did not take even half a step back. She looked as though she was prepared for death.
The corner of Zhu Yao’s lips twitched. Was today the day the conference for former jade’s dimension space owners supposed to happen? The number of former owners here were just about enough to form a mahjong table, you know?
“Little sister Manfeng, hurry and leave!” Goudan pushed Tao Manfeng away, while his legs began to tremble. “You can’t beat this great deity.” He was really afraid. Recalling the time he first entered the dimensional space, he was zapped to the point he was between life and death by this great deity. That scene was simply comparable to the dark past of one’s childhood, a memory which he did not even dare to recall. If little sister Mo Xianxian had not bound the dimensional space with her blood, and if he was not forcefully pulled into the dimensional space, he most probably would not have realized the secret behind the jade in his entire lifetime.
“Shut up!” Tao Manfeng glared at Goudan. “Not everyone here is as stupid as you.”
Mn, Zhu Yao agreed with these words of hers.
“High Deity!” Tao Manfeng bowed towards Yu Yan. “Goudan had only become a spirit not long ago, so he might make many offences in his various ways of conduct. I seek High Deity for your forgiveness.”
Yu Yan did not even spare her a glance, and simply continued to summon his heavenly lightning bolt, not to mention, that one single bolt had even split into two. Very evidently, he wasn’t forgiving at all.
“High Deity!” Tao Manfeng flustered, and she had no choice but to light up a protective barrier to shield both her and Goudan.
Zhu Yao was a little stunned while watching this scene. She knew absolutely clearly what kind of person Tao Manfeng was, yet, she actually stood up for someone she was unrelated to, and the other party was even Goudan. Th-This… This was a little too miraculous, wasn’t it?
For a moment, the thought of a drama regarding a triangle love relationship popped up in her mind. Mo Xianxian vs Goudan vs Tao Manfeng.
Why did she feel that the style of this drama would be so strange?
“Master, wait.” Zhu Yao had no choice but to shout ‘cut’. Yu Yan glanced at her, and was evidently not amused with his disciple’s soft-hearted actions. Zhu Yao took two steps forward, and pulled down the hands he was casting an art with. After pondering for a moment, she tightened her hands, and her fingers intertwined with his. She then chuckled. “Give me some face.”
Yu Yan frowned. Looking at his hands which was intertwined with his disciple’s, a sense of satisfaction strangely surged from the bottom of his heart. Mn. Allowing his disciple to rebel against him just once did not feel unacceptable.
Hence, he turned his head, and could not be bothered any longer.
Just… He did not wish to let go of her hands.
Zhu Yao struggled for a few moments and was unable to escape from his grasp. She had no choice but to turn around to block their intertwined fingers from view. Haah, her master was being petty again.
“Tell Mo Xianxian to come out, and I will let the both of you go.”
“No way.” Goudan fumed the moment he heard her words. “She’s already injured, what are you planning to do with her still?”
“There’s something that I wish to talk to her about.” Zhu Yao rolled her eyes at him. “Don’t worry, I won’t kill her.”
“Hmph. I don’t believe you. I know you simply want to harm her.”
Haah, look at that temper of hers. With a wave of Zhu Yao’s hand, the jade on the table instantly flew into her hand. “If I wish to kill her, I wouldn’t do something so troublesome. I would have simply destroyed this piece of jade, why’s there the need to go round and round with you people?”
Goudan still carried that look of disbelief, though, Tao Manfeng nodded. “Fine, I will head in and speak to her.” After saying that, she raised her head and glanced at Yu Yan, before disappearing into the dimensional space.
A moment later, she appeared in the room, along with the injured Mo Xianxian.
