Chapter 96: The Demon Girl 5
Feng County was originally a small county town that was not too big. However, with the famous Wutong Villa in that county; many famous people in Jianghu could be seen lingering around this area. The residents of this small town were also already used to this kind of sight. In recent years, under the Wutong Villa deterrence, no one dared to kill people in this county. Because of this, Wutong Villa has become a god’s residence in Feng County’s people’s hearts. Every time a child is born in this county, the parent’s biggest wish is not to let him become the scholar’s champion but for their child to enter the Wutong Villa to practice martial arts and become a famous hero…
Xia Beibei was also not a stranger to Feng County. In Ye Lan’s memory, she had been to this place many times. After having dinner in the city, Xia Beibei specially chose an inn not far from the Wutong Villa. When the waiter opened the inn door and saw Xia Beibei, who dressed up in a strong outfit, he could not help but greet her warmly: “Nuxia, are you here to participate in the apprenticeship assessment of Wutong Villa? Come and stay at this guest house, ah. Our inn is located on the east side of Wutong Villa. The so-called luck comes from the east. Therefore, your wish might come true. Nuxia, you surely be able to enter the Wutong Villa successfully.”
[T/N: Nuxia – Heroic female. I cannot find the equivalent name in English, so I left it in pinyin]
Hearing the waiter’s witty words, Xia Beibei’s eyes flashed: “Waiter brother, you can really speak!”
Before he finished speaking, Xia Beibei raised her hand and threw out a silver ingot: “Give me a room with the best feng shui. This time my wish will definitely come true!”
The waiter was beaming with joy as he received the money from Xia Beibei. He immediately led Xia Beibei upstairs with a smile. When Xia Beibei was about to climb the stairs, a blue figure appeared at the inn’s entrance.
“Shopkeeper, give me a room!”
The man in a brocade robe had a deep look and spoke in a low tone as he raised his hand to put down a silver ingot.
“Young Master, I’m really sorry. This young lady has ordered the last room in our shop.” Although he was very tempted when he saw the money, he had to tell the truth as a shopkeeper. The blame was only for those who came to Feng county these days. There were too many martial arts people, but the Shopkeeper could only look at the silver since there are not many good rooms available in the inn. Even so, his face still beamed with a smile.
The man adorned in a blue robe followed the direction pointed by the Shopkeeper. As he raised his cold eyes and took a look, he was taken aback: “Ye Lan?”
The figure of Xia Beibei going upstairs paused for a while when someone called the Ye Lan’s name. A flash of light passed quickly in her eyes, but the moment she turned around, she was already smiling.
The two people faced each other. The man in blue robe looked at Xia Beibei with deep eyes while Xia Beibei was also taken aback when she saw the familiar face of the person downstairs —
The landlord of the Tianxiang building, Feng Jiutian.
Ye Lan had seen this person and had dealt with him before.
Tianxiang building was the most extensive information broker in the martial arts world. As long as you have money, you can get all the information you want from the Tianxiang building.
Feng Jiutian, the owner of the Tianxiang building, has a different mind from other mysterious organizations. He didn’t like to stay behind the scenes. Instead, he wants to travel around the world and make friends with the world’s heroes. He was a well-known genius in the current generation.
“It turned out to be Landlord Feng.”
After being exposed by Feng Jiutian, Xia Beibei no longer hides her identity: “What? Does Landlord Feng want my room? If you really want it… You can change things with me later.”
Xia Beibei smiled at Feng Jiutian, then turned her head and hurried upstairs.
After staring at Xia Beibei’s figure for a short moment, Feng Jiutian turned and looked at the Shopkeeper beside him: “Give me a clean guest room, thank you.”
When she arrived at her room, Xia Beibei did not immediately rest. She sat at the bāxiānzhuō while facing the door with a pensive expression.
[T/N: Bāxiānzhuō – old-fashioned square table to seat eight people]
Before long, there was a knock on the door.
Xia Beibei stood up involuntarily.
“Feng Jiutian.” Outside the door, Feng Jiutian’s low voice came.
Hearing Feng Jiutian’s voice, Xia Beibei walked quickly to the door and opened the door: “Lord Feng, you are…”
As soon as Feng Jiutian raised his hand, he gave the number plate of a guest room to Xia Beibei: “Earth room, No 3.”
Xia Beibei: …
“Lord Feng, you are…”
Xia Beibei played with the token and raised his eyes to look at Feng Jiutian, with a smile in her eyes: “Lord Feng, are you planning to exchange something with me?”
“Wutong Villa will open three days later to accept apprentices. This is the first time since the establishment of their Villa. They are planning on recruiting talents from the Wulin. This time, Yue Yuanying has lost his blood and has also widely distributed an invitation to all schools.
As Feng Jiutian said this, he raised his hand again and took out the invitation from his sleeves: “Look, I’m here to join in the fun this time. Ye Lan, do you think you will be able to destroy the Wutong Villa in front of those Wulin’s people? Or… Do you think you can leave calmly after killing someone?”
Hearing Feng Jiutian’s words, Xia Beibei was taken aback–
To think that the Wutong Villa had this kind of planning! Their preparation is such an extravagance. Even the Xueyi Sect had not received this news in advance. This Wutong Villa’s confidential work is being done too well, huh?
“Yue Yuanying is only an old man.”
Xia Beibei pondered for a moment: “I don’t know who is behind the scenes that help with the Wutong Villa? If the landlord Feng is willing to tell Ye Lan, Ye Lan is also very willing to change the room with you.”
While talking, Xia Beibei also took out the token to her room.
Hearing Xia Beibei’s words, Feng Jiutian, looked down and smiled: “The person behind the scenes? That person is not someone you can deal with. At least, you are definitely not his opponent now. Ye Lan, you should go back!”
After speaking, Feng Jiutian brushed his hand. The token in Xia Beibei’s hand had reached his palm.
Xia Beibei: …
Is this what we called forcing somebody to buy and selling, ah? Landlord Feng, if you have to use force to break a melon off the vine, it won’t taste sweet.
Xia Beibei stood still in place. Feng Jiutian ignored her as he walked into the room calmly and began to take off his robe: “Miss Ye, I’m going to sleep. Won’t it inconvenient if you were still standing there?”
Xia Beibei: Your mom!
Xia Beibei gritted her teeth and grabbed another token in his hand: “Then I will go first. Lord Feng, you have a good rest!”
After cursing Feng Jiutian secretly in her heart, Xia Beibei reluctantly left the room.
After Xia Beibei left, Feng Jiutian shook his head slightly. He raised his hand and extinguished the oil lamp in the room…
After a while, Xia Beibei took the token Feng Jiutian gave to herself and found the room with the name [Earth]. The room was also cleaned up. In fact, Xia Beibei was not incredibly picky about the place. She just doesn’t like Feng Jiutian’s action of trading through coercion and acting as if it was inevitable and right.
Your mom, such a person, is just short of being whipped and thrashed.
However, Feng Jiutian’s words also gave Xia Beibei many hints-Wutong Villa’s series of masterpieces, including the anomaly of Yue Zhengfeng, are by no means accidental.
There is a big hand behind the scenes controlling all this. I wonder what his purpose behind these black hands?
Because of his interference, the plot of the whole world is getting messed up…
