Chapter Ch25 - Up Your Alley
Yan Tianhen immediately began to panic and said, “Yesterday you obviously said that you’ll return me Hu Po for a thousand gold!”
“Yesterday was yesterday, today is today, and yesterday my terms depended on you being the redeemer. Since there’s someone else doing the redeeming today, then naturally I’ll have to change my conditions a bit.” Ji Yunwei took out a fan out of nowhere, flicked it open, then began to fan himself with an idle composure.
Hu Po let out a low growl at Ji Yunwei. Ji Yunwei slanted his eyes to look at it, then smiled, “What’s wrong, if you follow me you get to eat and drink whatever you want, and it wouldn’t be a problem no matter how many demonic delight fruits you desire. Plus, there would be other tiger cubs to play with you too. Why are you unwilling? Don’t tell me you must follow a master who had sold you for money, only to be happy if you’re sold off again?”
Hu Po’s whole body of hair was standing on its ends. It angrily bared its teeth, lowered its body and raised its tail up high.
But, not long after, Hu Po hung his head and laid down on the table with a heartbroken expression on its face.
Ah Bai laid down next to Hu Po and used its body to bump Hu Po. He even stuck out his pink tongue and licked Hu Po’s face to comfort Hu Po.
As he took in this whole sight, Yan Tianhen felt so guilty that he didn’t even dare to raise his head.
Even though yesterday was an emergency and he had to sell Hu Po against his wishes, Yan Tianhen had sworn to get these two tiger cubs back no matter what. However, he still felt very aggrieved over it.
Afterall, he had personally raised these two tiger cubs and they had already become his best friends. To have to resort to selling his own friends, one can imagine how Yan Tianhen must have felt.
Lin Xuanzhi lifted his hand and rubbed Yan Tianhen’s head, then said to Ji Yunwei, “I had never thought of selling Hu Po, yesterday was an emergency, no matter what conditions you have, you can say it.”
Ji Yunwei’s fan closed with a “pa”, his eyes turned into slits as he smiled, “What if I definitely want this tiger cub? Someone who’s only of a Refining Qi stage second layer cultivation like you is definitely no match for me.”
“Lin mou1 will only raise my hand against enemies.” Lin Xuanzhi lightly said, “As a primary level realm beast tamer, since you didn’t directly form a contract with this demonic beast, I’m guessing that there’s still room for negotiation.”
Ji Yunwei’s eyes lit up slightly, then said, “So your surname is Lin.”
Lin Xuanzhi said, “The humble me is Lin Xuanzhi.”
Ji Yunwei suddenly had an epiphany and clapped his hands together, then smiled as he said, “I’ve always heard of you, but today I finally got the chance to meet you in person. Lin young master’s great reputation is renowned throughout the Five Continents. In fact, ever since I entered the East Continent, I’ve heard cultivators talk about you non-stop. Now that I’ve seen you today, I understand why people say you have an extraordinary appearance.”
Lin Xuanzhi lightly smiled, then said, “I fear Ji young master didn’t only hear good things about me. And talking about being renowned throughout the Five Continents, I think Ji young master is more suited to be complimented as so.”
Ji Yunwei was slightly surprised, “How did you know who I am?”
Yan Tianhen also looked at Lin Xuanzhi with a puzzled expression.
“How I knew about you isn’t important, what’s important is, I’m laying my sincerity on the table. Since we both know each other, then why don’t we sit down and have a nice talk?” Lin Xuanzhi threw out a friendly brick.
Ji Yunwei clapped his hands as he laughed aloud, then nodded and said, “That would be great, I am very interested in getting to know Lin young master.”
Yan Tianhen looked at this two converse back and forth, and in a moment they had even decided on where to sit down to have their discussion. He inwardly sulked — his Dage is actually quite a cold person, and acts even colder to strangers. Today was obviously the first time his Dage had met Ji Yunwei, yet they acted as if they had been friends for a long time. This had completely overturned his impression of Ji Yunwei.
Don’t tell him, his Dage likes the Ji Yunwei type?
Yan Tianhen’s head was smacked.
“You’re not allowed to imagine weird things in your head.” Lin Xuanzhi lowered his head and said to Yan Tianhen.
Yan Tianhen was stunned, then realised that he had unconsciously said aloud whatever he was thinking, and within a second his face turned bright red.
On the other side, Ji Yunwei looked very amused, then he revealed a faint smile as he narrowed his eyes and sized up the two people in front of him.
These two look pretty interesting; one’s beautiful and the other’s ugly, one’s calculating yet the other’s simple-minded, if it wasn’t because they were brothers, they would actually complement each other quite well.
1. Mou (某) is a word used to replace one’s name, so LXZ replaced his name ‘Xuanzhi’ with ‘mou’↩
