Chapter 103: The Demon Girl 12
T/N: Actually I’m not planning to update today. Oh well.
I found out many comments asking :-
[Is Xia Beibei really going to be an ultimate villain? She just being stupid there and getting killed for no reason]
[Isn’t she like cannon fodder, getting killed here and there?]
These comments make me wonder if anyone knows what being a villain is? According to online dictionary, villain constitute of [a cruelly malicious person who is involved in or devoted to wickedness or crime; A scoundrel. A character in a play, novel, or the like, who constitutes an important evil agency in the plot. A person or thing considered to be the cause of something bad]
This novel is a story of someone being a villain and getting killed by the righteous hero. No matter how powerful the villain is, that role will be killed at the end. It just a matter of whether you were being killed at the beginning for being a low-level villain or being the ultimate Boss who kept toying with the ML/FML and killed at the end of the novel.
I know many of the readers were like, why won’t Xia Beibei counterattack? We are continuously being fed with a counterattack novel that we wish the MC will become the winner all the time. I also asked and wished for it myself when I read this novel. But remember Xia Beibei is there to ensure the progress of the plot, not ruin it. There are many opportunities for Xia Beibei to kill the ML/FML but she didn’t [Like last zombie arc]. Why? That is not her job. We can see her perseverance to ensure the plot remains as what it is. To let the ML/FML won~ But she did her best to portray her villain role. Maybe to FML/ML, she is a scrouge, but she also proves that she is still a treasure to others. She gave more dimension to her character rather than a simple good-for-nothing.
That’s why at the beginning, Yan Yicheng had wondered if Xia Beibei had the tenacity to continue holding into the villain’s role. I mean, who likes being killed when they obviously had many chances to turn things around, right?
As for why Yan Yicheng killed Xia Beibei, this is also to ensure the progress of the plot. Human nature is too fickle. Like in the second arc. If Yan Yicheng did not kill Xia Beibei after she falls down, what will happen if the Emperor suddenly caught and wanted to torture Xia Beibei in the dungeon and ended up falling in love with her perseverance or something, turning this into a dog blood drama? This will totally ruin the world’s progress.
Okay, the rant is being too long. Hopefully, you understand why Xia Beibei is like this and why Yan Yicheng is like that. BTW, 10/10 is my birthday. So happy birthday me~
Seeing Xia Beizhen finally took Zuo Qianji’s ashes, Feng Jiutian’s eyes then fell on her: “How is your injury?”
“My injury has stabilized! Thanks to Senior Zuo for giving his internal force to me, he is indeed my benefactor. Furthermore, you…”
Xia Beibei glanced at Feng Jiutian: “Last night, I said something excessive to Senior Zuo, I…”
“He will thank you.”
Feng Jiutian glanced at Xia Beibei: “You gave him a chance to redeem his sins and a chance to die with peace of mind. What he needs is not beautiful words of others, but the accusations and denouncement.”
Zuo Qianji, the pitiful and lamentable generation of Wulin heroes.
During his years in the Western Regions, he had been resisting the medicinal power of the Forgetfulness Herb. Isn’t this a self-torture?
He was a coward who couldn’t face his lover and daughter, and he paid a lifetime price for this weakness.
“After all, he is still a coward. He would rather be tortured night by night by the Forgetfulness Grass than come back and face his wife and daughter.
Such a man, indeed, not worth of forgiving…
“It is not advisable to stay here for too long. Let’s leave here immediately!”
Xia Beibei and Feng Jiutian simply ate some dry food and quickly left the courtyard in the suburbs. However, they did not expect to be stopped by a large group of people as soon as they walked out.
Today was initially a good day for disciples’ gathering at Wutong Villa. It could be considered as a significant event in the Wulin circle. Countless sects have already gathered at Feng County, and some distant disciples had arrived at the outer peripheries of Wutong Villa early this morning.
Although only a few hours have passed, the rich bloody scent could still be smelled from outside the villa’s door. Even on the steps leading to the front entrance of the villa, dried blood stains can vaguely be seen.
The Wutong Villa was washed in blood overnight, and no dogs or chickens were spared!
There were countless dead bodies in the villa. That bloody and cruel scene was too shocking!
All the signs showed that people who did such frantic things were the Xueyi Sect’s people!
Those wicked evildoers! They were simply deranged, and must be punished!
As a result, all the sects organized a spontaneous search and hunted for those Xueyi evildoers around Feng County. At the moment, Xia Beibei and Feng Jiutian were surrounded by people.
There were quite a few people in the martial arts who knew of Ye Lan identity. Although some of them did not know here, they have all seen the portrait of the Xueyi sect’s Evil girl. Therefore, they were able to ascertain Xia Beibei’s identity after coming face-to-face.
It was the Kongtong school and Huashan Sword sect who managed to block Xia Beibei and Feng Jiutian on their way out. The leader of the search group was Tong Lian, the great elder of Huashan Sword sect.
Tong Lian was also considered as a senior in the Wulin circle. Therefore, he was naturally knowledgeable and had friends all over the land under heaven. He recognized Feng Jiutian at first sight, so he stopped the movement of everyone behind him. He then moved forward and hold fist salute to Feng Jiutian: “Landlord Feng, I haven’t seen you in a while. I trust you have been well since we last met, ah!”
Seeing Tong Lian saying hello to him, Feng Jiutian took a step forward and looked at Tong Lian with a smile: “Indeed, I haven’t seen you for a while. When was the last time we met? Aiya, I think it was when Elder Tong came to Tianxianglou last spring to inquire about the whereabouts and price of some medicine, right? Elder Tong, have you taken medicine yet? I think you still look a bit pale and unstable. You look a bit weak recently, ah!”
Tong Lian: …
So Feng Jiutian, your poisonous tongue problem was incurable, right?
Tong Lian was blushing. The next moment he turned his gaze and looked coldly at Xia Beibei’s body: “Demon girl! Persisting in evil brings about self-destruction! Today we are going to avenge those hundreds of people who have died in Wutong Villa for their grievances! If you feel repentance in your heart, apologize at once! Otherwise, don’t blame us for being rude!”
Xia Beibei smiled and looked at the large group of righteous people in front of him: “Your righteous people are benevolent and virtuous, ah! Every day you noisily yell of taking revenge on behalf of others! With your willfulness, you, righteous people were allowed to be meddlesome to avenge others. Yet, on the other hand, I was not allowed to avenge yourself? The people of Wutong Villa have hatred with me. Only one of us could live under the land of heaven. Since their skill is inferior to others, of course, they only have themselves to blame! Once they enter the Jianghu, life and death are up to one’s fate! Elder Tong, could it be that the younger generation is wrong with this perception?”
“What a clever and eloquent girl.”
Hearing Xia Beibei’s words, Tong Lian smiled slightly: “The Wulin circle does allow people to fight and avenge themselves. But you are so cruel to massacre the whole Wutong Villa into a bloodbath! Do all of them have enmity with you? Demon girl, today, I will not allow you to quibble with your strong and unyielding words! Landlord Feng, you also step aside! I am determined to capture this demon girl today, and take her to the gate of the Wutong Villa to apologize!”
With that said, Tong Lian had already drawn out his sword, and everyone behind him was all ready to go.
At this moment, Feng Jiutian couldn’t help but smile coldly: “This Lord didn’t see her washed the Wutong Villa with blood. But this Lord did see your large group of shameless people insisting on embarrassing a young, little girl. Don’t you know what shame is?”
While speaking, Feng Jiutian stepped forward and stood in front of Xia Beibei.
Xia Beibei was taken aback as she watched him guarding her as if it was nothing. She remembered last night that Feng Jiutian also protected her by putting her body behind his back. She didn’t think much about it at that time. However, at this moment, Xia Beibei was touched by his action.
Xia Beibei opened his mouth, wanting to say something. Still, Feng Jiutian interrupted Xia Beibei’s words: “Don’t thank me, I just can’t understand how a large group of men could bully a woman like this. En, if you have the ability to one-on-one, come forward. I can also be a referee on the sidelines and watch the excitement by the way!”
Sure enough. You shouldn’t be grateful for such unreasonable people who loves looking for a fight.
Hearing Feng Jiutian’s words, Tong Lian smiled slightly: “In this case, the old man will come to experience the skills of the Xueyi sect’s demon girl! I won’t let people say that we are bullying others with numbers. One-on-one comparisons are always possible, right?”
“Elder Tong, you are senior, aren’t you embarrassed to bully junior with your status? If by chance that you lose, where are you going to put your old face? Are you going to commit suicide and apologize for this offense?”
Seeing Tong Lian stepping forward, Feng Jiutian couldn’t help but tease him again. Immediately, Tong Lian’s expression became even more ugly.
This Feng Jiutian, although he hasn’t said the words bluntly, he is clearly supporting that Xueyi sect’s demon girl!
“Senior uncle, let me go!”
At this time, a young disciple who had been standing behind Tong Lian stepped forward in a dashing manner. He then stood straight in front of Xia Beibei as he introduced himself: “I am from Huashan Sword Sect, Yue Xiangtian!”
Xia Beibei: …
Isn’t this a similar portrayal of Yue Buqun, cough cough.
[T/N: Yue Buqun is a character in Jin Yong’s famous novel The Swordsman. He was the head of the Huashan sect and was known as the Gentleman’s Sword. He is also a hypocrite]
“Huashan Sword Sect’s number one genius of sword, Yue Xiangtian?”
Seeing Yue Xiangtian’s initiative to volunteer, Feng Jiutian on the side spoke again: “As expected of a young genius. Handsome, temperamental, and value-oriented! I said, Xiaoyue, ah! Look, Xiaoye is a girl, and she is covered with injuries. You as a grown man are of course, vigorous and lively and happy to participate in a fight. But, what will other people think about this? Others will say that you are bullying others under the name of the Huashan Sword sect! They will say that you are taking advantage of someone else’s difficulties, ah!”
Yue Xiangtian: …
What Landlord Feng said seems to make sense, but I unexpectedly unable to respond…
T/N: Yan Yicheng did not OOC at all that it felt so jarring. I mean I can’t imagine that cold boss, having such a cheeky personality lol. I think only in front of Xia Beibei that he sometimes slipped from his character
