Chapter 24: Is this a place you can come to?
"Rise, you can come with me."
Although she didn't believe this girl's reason, the determination in her eyes were not fake.
Ye Yu Xi led Qing'er, Ye Wen, and the final girl with her as she left the Floating Fragrance House. Old Bao Zi did not dare do anything under the watch of Housekeeper Qiu and obediently allowed Ye Yu Xi's group leave.
"Young miss, do we need to find an inn first to settle them down?" Qing'er walked beside Ye Yu Xi.
Ye Yu Xi looked at the two people behind her and her eyes fell onto that girl, "We have already left the brothel and there is no one here, you're not planning to run?"
The girl looked at Ye Yu Xi in shock, but Ye Yu Xi had broken her thoughts. She did not turn and run as she fell to the ground kneeling, "I ask the young miss to save my child!"
Ye Yu Xi brought these people to look for an inn.
"What is your name and what happened to your child?" Ye Yu Xi looked at the girl who was older than her by a few years.
The girl kneeled down again and before she spoke, tears flowed down, "I am called Cao Man and my son just turned three years old. Because my husband's business suffered a loss and owed the Zhao Manor quite a bit of money, they killed my husband and sold me to the brothel while taking away my son. I later found out from the people in the brothel that the Zhao Manor had been secretly doing business selling people!"
Qing'er gritted her teeth on the side listening to this. The Zhao Manor really weren't anything good!
Ye Yu Xi's palm slapped onto the table as her face turned ice cold. There was a trace of killing intent flashing in her eyes, "Zhao Manor."
"Rise up. From this day forth, you are the same as Ye Wen, also surnamed Ye." Ye Yu Xi had Qing'er settle the two of them as she left the inn by herself.
After taking some gold coins from the bank Ye Yu Xi directly went into the main city sector.
The main city sector was set up the City Lord Palace and only those with cultivations above the third spiritual level could enter to buy and sell things.
"Stop! This is not a place you can enter."
When the two large men in front of the main city sector's doors saw Ye Yu Xi, they called out to stop her. Their tasks in standing here was very simple, they were to block people who didn't seem too strong or people that seemed poor.
"Un?" Ye Yu Xi looked up and stared at the men blocking her.
"So it's you, is this a place you can enter? Quickly go back." Seeing Ye Yu Xi's appearance, the two men were more determined not to let Ye Yu Xi in. Ye Yu Xi's situation was already well known by the people of Ningyuan City.
"Move aside." Ye Yu Xi coldly spat out these two words.
One man moved to the side and blocked the door before giving a cold laugh, "The people that can go in are all people with face, at least having a cultivation in the third spiritual layer. What does a piece of trash in the first spiritual layer need to go in for? Stop implicating father, scram, scram, scram!"
The other man also spoke up to stop her, but his voice was much kinder, "Young miss Ye, this place is not suited to you. There are important people here today, it is better if the young miss heads back."
The man blocking the door pointed behind Ye Yu Xi, "Scram now or father will make a move."
Ye Yu Xi's eyes turned cold and she made her move as fast as lightning.
A hand grabbed the large man's wrist and with a kacha sound, the large man's arm was broken. Kicking out, her foot landed in the large man's stomach and sent that large man's over two hundred pound body flying.
Ye Yu Xi smoothed out the wrinkles on her sleeve as she looked at the other man, "Can I go in now?"
Chapter 25: Scram (Part 1)
Ignoring the stunned guard, Ye Yu Xi walked into the main city sector.
There weren't many people near the entrance, but the inside was very lively.
Although the main city sector was big, there weren't shops here like on the ordinary streets. It was mostly filled with stalls, some using a few pieces of bamboo to hold up a cloth, blocking the sun.
Every three-five meters was a little stall selling something. There were all kinds of things, cultivation techniques, pills, weapons, and armours, but whether these things were real or fake depended on one's eyes.
Ye Yu Xi walked through the main city sector, not looking through every stall like a normal person. Ye Yu Xi only had a single goal, she wanted to find a weapon that suited her.
Her eyes swept over the booths and saw that there weren't many of them selling weapons, also most of them were selling large blades, dual handed axes, and other large weapons. They weren't what Ye Yu Xi wanted. Ye Yu Xi wanted to find a quick moving short weapon that could instantly take people's lives.
After walking for a bit, the crowd in front of her attracted Ye Yu Xi's attention.
The crowd was focused on a girl standing in front of a booth.
"This weapon is exquisite. How much is it, this young miss wants this!" Zhao Yu He looked at the only weapon in the stall and asked for the price.
Ye Yu Xi followed Zhao Yu He's gaze. There was a dagger in the stall with a dark black blade and strange patterns engraved on it, looking very ancient.
Seeing this dagger, Ye Yu Xi's eyes focused. This dagger, it was exactly the same as the three bladed thorn from earth. The three bladed thorn was a kind of short weapon and not only was the blade triangular, the mark it left was also triangular. It had a very strong penetrative might and could easily take lives. When Ye Yu Xi was an assassin, she liked to use this kind of weapon.
The eyes of the old man selling the item were nervous, it was clear he was anxious in selling this item. When he heard Zhao Yu He asking for a price, he shook his head, "This item isn't being sold for gold coins, it can only be traded for healing pills."
Most of the people came here because of the Zhao Family's young miss, Zhao Yu He. When they heard what the old man wanted, they couldn't help sucking in a cold breath. Although bartering was allowed in the main city sector, pills were more precious than weapons, so who would take them out?"
"I can give you gold coins, state your price!" Zhao Yu He was determined to have this item.
The old man sat there shaking his head, not making a sound.
Ye Yu Xi took out a white jade bottle and slowly walked over, "Old sir, can you see if this pill is alright?"
The old man took the bottle and opened a slit in it, causing a clear medicinal fragrance to come out. He was shocked when he smelled it and his eyes revealed a strange look, "Miss, is this pill an Origin Returning Pill?"
Origin Returning Pill! When everyone heard this, they were all shocked. The Origin Returning Pill was a second grade pill. In a place like Ningyuan City, a single first grade pill could be sold for up to a thousand gold coins and second grade pills were priceless!
"Everyone look, isn't that the Ye Manor's young miss?"
Someone recognized Ye Yu Xi, after all, Ye Yu Xi was considered a famous person in Ningyuan City.
"It can't be. Ye Yu Xi is known as a waste and isn't even accepted by her family, I heard she was kicked out of the Ye Manor."
"She only looks like her! How could Ye Yu Xi with her weak cultivation come to a place like the main city sector."
The old man finally made his decision as he nodded, "This miss, I can make this deal, the item is yours!" After saying this, the old man did not care about Zhao Yu He's expression as he took the dagger from her hand and gave it to Ye Yu Xi.
Ye Yu Xi turned to leave after receiving the dagger. She had found what she was looking for, so she had no need to stay here.
"Piece of trash, freeze! Who allowed you to leave!" Others would not recognize Ye Yu Xi, but how could Zhao Yu He who was set on the seventh prince not recognize her enemy!
