Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 136: Grandpa Hou came
“Ye Chuan, if you are any slower, I will force myself in.”
“Big Senior Apprentice-Brother……”
Fatty Zhao Dazhi and Protector Yang Tian Kuang darted out from inside the room and stopped Ye Chuan, for fear that he would act impulsively.
Protector Yang Tian Kuang coughed few times, and feigning calm, he took several deep breathe and walked forward mustering his courage. But before he could open the door, the door of the courtyard fell apart and a person flew over. A youngster full of killing intent came in front of the trio. He had a wretched appearance and his forehead was protruding, still, even though he was ferocious and was full of killing intent, and his stature was thin and also small, but he was persistently wearing showy big red war robe which was incongruous. He looked just like a monkey who had just run out from some valley, appearing rather comical. Behind him, a large group of disciples and odd-job men were following, coming to watch the excitement.
“Noble son, may I ask……” Yang Tian Kuang very cautiously spoke with a smile.
Seeing this crowd of Heavenly Yao Sect’s disciples who had a threatening appearance, his heart thumped, knowing the situation was anything but reassuring. He understood that the disciples of Heavenly Yao Sect had come to carry out a vendetta against them. He knew that not only Ye Chuan encountered the mishap, even he and fatty Zhao Dazhi wouldn’t be able to avoid this disaster easily. When the moment comes, they would die without a place to cry out about their grievances, and even if Cloud Mist Sect investigated after the events, they could casually push all the blame to an outer sect disciple at worst, muddling through the work.
“Surnamed Hou, given name Yuan Chang, calling me Grandpa Hou is enough.”
The youngster with wretched appearance interrupted Yang Tian Kuang, and with the appearance of self-centered show-off who set himself high above the masses, he ferociously said: “Who is Ye Chuan? Stand out for me!”
Hou Yuan Chang got straight to the point, as soon as he opened his mouth, he pointed out that he wanted to see Ye Chuan and his killing intent soared.
“Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, don’t move, don’t speak.”
Fatty Zhao Dazhi, while sweating profusely, on one side he whispered and on another side he secretly pulled the lower hem of Ye Chuan’s clothing.
This circumstance was not right, if Ye Chuan stood out, then he might suffer head-on attacks without even a chance to argue or plead for mercy. Hou Yuan Chang, this fellow appeared incongruous, but his cultivation nevertheless was high. Sensing the surging energy fluctuation within his body, he clearly was an elite of late-stage Xiushi realm. Compared to only rank 2 Xiushi Ye Chuan, he was many times more powerful. Let alone Ye Chuan, even Protector Yang Tian Kuang might not necessarily be his opponent.
“I am Ye Chuan, I wonder why Grandpa Hou honored us by your presence, excuse me for not going out to welcome you.”
Ye Chuan greeted in the presence of all. He had a respectful, reserved but somewhat unsettled appearance, “Grandpa Hou look happy and healthy, is a man of striking appearance, I wonder the relation between you and His Excellency Sect Protector Hou is……”
“He is my father.”
Hou Yuan Chang held up his head and threw out his chest. He was very satisfied with the expression of Ye Chuan and he said: “Boy, I heard you are current generation Big Disciple of Cloud Mist Sect, is that true?”
“Yes, however, that is just junior apprentice-brothers and junior apprentice-sisters praising me, compared to me, there are many more remarkable younger generation disciples inside the sect.”
Ye Chuan nodded his head, speaking sincerely and politely, relieving both Yang Tian Kuang and fatty Zhao Dazhi who were worried that he would bring disaster by shooting his mouth off. Ye Chuan paused, then looking Hou Yuan Chang up and down, from head to toe, and again from toe to head, he nodded his head and said: “People say, with the father being a lion, the son cannot be a dog, it seems, it is indeed true. Unfortunately, your forehead is protruding a bit, and if the mouth was a bit longer or you had few protruding teeth, then you would have looked better. Now, like this, although good-looking, but you looked just like a monkey. Fatty, don’t stop me, let me slap him few times. Even his father Hou Shan had to call himself junior apprentice-brother in front of this noble son, but this brat is calling himself Grandpa Hou, too outrageous, truly treating the laws of the sect as air.”
Ye Chuan pretended to rolled up his sleeves, and had the appearance of wanting to get into a fight. Several words in the front were polite, making Hou Yuan Chang contented in front of people, but in the middle, the tone suddenly changed, raining down curses to Hou Yuan Chang who was bearing down menacingly.
What I am truly afraid would come has come, is Ye Chuan truly tired of living? Or did he think this place is still Cloud Mist Sect?
Fatty Zhao Dazhi wailed in his heart, and the fatty meat on his body trembled.
Protector Yang Tian Kuang also trembled in his heart. He looked ashen and was endlessly regretting in his heart. If he had known earlier that Ye Chuan would be like this, then he would have rather accepted the punishment of the sect instead of leading this group. Dying was a small matter, but all the face had been lost. Bragging at this moment, wasn’t this just courting disgrace?
Many disciples of Heavenly Yao Sect that had come to watch the excitement were dumbfounded. They doubted that they might have heard wrongly, shortly afterward, they couldn’t help but roar with laughter.
Hou Yuan Chang looked like a monkey, everyone already knew this point long ago, but who dared to speak it out? Not for the monk’s sake, but for the Buddha’s, considering the face of his father Hou Shan, even if cursed, shouldn’t he restrain a bit?
Everyone wanted to speak but no one dared to say these words, however Ye Chuan said those words, moreover, he said in all seriousness, and his voice was loud, so everybody heard clearly.
The face of Hou Yuan Chan suddenly became purplish red just like the pork liver.
As a silkpants, he was violent, and would always act wilfully with few of his companions. But hearing Ye Chuan saying such words face to face like this, he lost his temper, and he thoroughly went out of control in front of everybody who was roaring with laughter, “Brat, I will kill you, personally kill you!”
“Want to kill me?”
Ye Chuan shook his head, and looking at Hou Yuan Chang who had went out of control, he said with a smile, “You are not capable, even if your father Hou Shan came personally, he is barely adequate, as for you boy, there is a big disparity.”
With regarding Hou Yuan Chang, this kind of trash, Ye Chuan didn’t care in the slightest. In any case, he had come to Heavenly Yao Sect this time not to deal with a man as he deals with you, but had come to borrow Heaven Burning Furnace. So he had stirred up the activity to alarm the higher-ups of Heavenly Yao Sect, thinking to see them.
“Hahaha, hahahaha……, good, brat, then we will have three hundred rounds of the bout to see who is powerful! Come, let’s have a life and death battle, come, now!”
Hou Yuan Chang was so angry that he laughed, then pulling out Nine Ring Sword hanging on his waist, he poured energy from his hands, causing this sharp sword to tremble making a humming sound. After that, it erupted with dense ruthless aura, and a dark radiance appeared on its blade, moreover as if it was smeared with a layer of fresh blood, a fishy smell assailed the nostrils. Very obviously, this sword had soaked in the blood of many opponents, refining their energy.
“No, that’s wrong!” Ye Chuan shook his head.
“What, what is wrong? Brat, you are scared!” Hou Yuan Chang stepped forward, and the energy fluctuation within his body and his killing intent steadily rose, moreover, his momentum was even more flourishing. And seeing Ye Chuan didn’t dare to accept the challenge, he finally felt as if he retrieved some face, but he didn’t let the matter drop without taking advantage of an opportunity, so he instead got more aggressive. Now his ferocious appearance all the more looked just like a monkey.
“What I mean is, I don’t need three hundred rounds to kill you, a single move is enough.” Ye Chuan indifferently answered. This extremely short sentence caused Hou Yuan Chang who had thought that he had retrieved some face go completely insane. He suddenly roared violently, and three feet long sword light sprang out from his Nine Ring Sword, and he completely displayed his cultivation of Rank 5 Xiushi, “Come, brat, I will let you make three moves first, and then if I cannot kill you using only one hand, then I am not surnamed Hou!”
Hou Yuan Chang flew into a rage, and he was ready to fight throwing caution to the wind.
Originally, he just wanted to just humiliate Ye Chuan in public, venting the anger instead of his father Hou Shan. But he had never thought that, Ye Chuan would drive him insane in few words, driving the matter completely out of control. At this moment, he only had the thoughts to kill Ye Chuan in his heart, even if Son of Heaven himself come in person also wouldn’t be able to stop him!
