Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 138: Lady White
The disciples of Heavenly Yao Sect who were bearing down menacingly suddenly retreated. Just like sea tide, they returned cleaning everything. They even took away the corpse of Hou Yuan Chang.
Hou Yuan Chang was dead, now the matter had gotten big.
Heavenly Yao Sect will certainly not let this matter drop, and after learning of this news, it was impossible for Protector Hou Shan to not act out violently. Not a single disciple of Heavenly Yao Sect was willing to stay here, in order to avoid getting involved in this disaster.
And on the side of Cloud Mist Sect, both fatty Zhao Dazhi and Protector Yang Tian Kuang were lifeless, and simultaneously became silent without prior discussion. Both inside and outside the courtyard, the atmosphere became heavy and stifling. Now the storm clouds were approaching.
Thinking about the upcoming storm, fatty and Yang Tian Kuang were so scared that they were terror-stricken. Ye Chuan however was the exception, he leisurely did what he ought to do.
The sky quickly darkened.
Fatty Zhao Dazhi and Yang Tian Kuang returned to their respective rooms and stayed silently.
Fatty Zhao Dazhi lied on the bed after closing the door without speaking. Then, he completely covered his body with a cotton-padded quilt, as if he could feel a little safety and also a little warmth like this. In the dim light of the night, he was even more scared and restless in his heart. Even if nothing happened tonight, what about tomorrow? How could they answer to the blame of Heavenly Yao Sect and the fury of Protector Hou Shan?
Fatty Zhao Dazhi was extremely worried and troubled, inside Heavenly Yao Sect, a storm was approaching, and since they had no place to run, they could only wait to die.
Knock, knock, knock, suddenly a knocking resounded in the darkness.
Fatty cried out in fear, quickly waking up from his absent-minded state.
There was no reply from outside the door, and with a creaking sound, the door opened, and a burst of cold wind poured in. The fine hair on the body of restless and nervous fatty stood erect, and his fatty meat also trembled. Unfolding the quilt, from the corner of his eyes, fatty saw a tall and straight figure entering, and walking quietly towards him as if a ghost, greatly scaring fatty.
“Just a trivial matter but you are so scared like this, fatty, with me, Senior Apprentice-Brother here, what’s there to fear?” a familiar voice resounded.
“Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, is…, is that you?”
Fatty lift up the quilt and completely exposing his head, he looked, and seeing it was Ye Chuan who had entered, he was relieved.
“It’s me, fatty, get up.”
Ye Chuan looked at terror-stricken fatty while grinning and said: “We finally came to Heavenly Yao Sect, let’s go, go out for a walk with Big Senior Apprentice-Brother to see the how’s the integrity of the unequaled sect.”
“No, I am not going.” Fatty Zhao Dazhi exerted all his strength to shake his head.
Now, he was truly afraid of Ye Chuan, just staying at this small courtyard had invited such a big calamity, if they go for a walk everywhere, then only heavens know what kind of disaster he would invite!
“That is also fine, then I and Protector Yang are going out, you stay and look after the house, if Hou Shan of Heavenly Yao Sect come, then say……” Ye Chuan deliberately paused while speaking.
“Go, I’ll go.”
Fatty Zhao Dazhi suddenly stood up fearing he would be slow.
When Ye Chuan and Protector Yang went out and only he stayed here, if the people of Heavenly Yao Sect came, then wouldn’t that be mantis trying to stop the carriage?
“If that is the case, then let’s go, and let Protector Yang stay behind by himself. He is very experienced, mature and steady, regardless of the situation, he would be able to handle the situation with ease. Fatty, let’s go!” Ye Chuan smiled, and fatty Zaho Dazhi was speechless. He understood that he had been duped and fallen into his trap. But, since he had already woken up, he had to go with Ye Chuan, lamenting his cruel fate.
Outside the courtyard, it was very quiet, there was not even a single guard. With Heavenly Yao Sect at the apex of its power, no one dared to break in, so usually, they didn’t need to patrol inside the sect. Moreover, after the incident, the guards nearby might have left, lest they would be involved in this matter.
With dark clouds densely covering the sky, under the hazy moonlight, the path was a bit blurred and couldn’t be seen clearly. Following Ye Chuan making seven turns and eight curves for a little while, fatty Zhao Dazhi was completely confused. Now, he didn’t know how far they had traveled from the small courtyard, and seeing the path was getting more and more remote, he couldn’t help but became scared, “Big……, Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, where are we going?”
“Just looking for a hidden place to lie low for the time being.” Ye Chuan said.
Fatty blushed with shame and could say nothing in reply, and after a while, wiping the sweat from his forehead, he asked, “Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, then….., then what about Protector Yang?”
At first, seeing Ye Chuan’s indifference appearance, fatty Zhao Dazhi had thought that Ye Chuan had already prepared a well-thought-out plan, so he was slightly relaxed in his heart. But, suddenly hearing Ye Chuan saying he was looking for a place to lie low, his heart was thoroughly in a mess and he sweated profusely.
“Heaven helps the worthy, Protector Yang will certainly be fine. Tonight, he intentionally instructed us to take refuge, and he alone will deal with this problem. Protector Yang is a good person, ai, nowadays, there are fewer and fewer such good person, fatty, you should properly learn from Protector Yang, you should always prepare to sacrifice yourself for the safety of other people.” Ye Chuan said in all seriousness, appearing as if Protector Yang had already sacrificed himself for them.
“Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, I…”
Fatty began continuously sweating profusely, and became even more nervous. Ye Chuan didn’t appear to be lying, but his these talks, the more he listened, the more upset he became.
Now, Protector Yang had sacrificed his life to protect Ye Chuan, next, what about after Protector Yang died? According to the words of Ye Chuan, didn’t that mean it’s his turn?
Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, can you scam other people like this? Other people especially cheat outsiders, but you are especially cheating junior apprentice-brothers and junior apprentice-sisters!
Fatty wailed in his heart.
“Almost there, let’s go.”
Seeing fatty was so scared, Ye Chuan shook his head, and walked forward in large strides. After seven turns and eight curves, walking for roughly half an hour, fatty arrived at the summit of Coiling Dragon Mountain. And a vast lake appeared in front of two people, under the hazy moonlight, it was gleaming, and one couldn’t see the end of it. If he did not see with his own eyes, then even if he was beaten to death, fatty wouldn’t have believed that there was such big lake on the top of the mountain.
“Coiling Dragon Heavenly pond, after so many years, I, Ye Chuan came back again……”
Ye Chuan muttered in a low voice and seeing this gleaming crystal clear lake, he became absent-minded.
“Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, what did you say? Where is this, you……, have you been here before?”
Fatty stepped forward and standing beside Ye Chuan, he was somewhat puzzled. He didn’t know why, but without any reason, he was jumpy time and again, as if under the lake surface, a terrifying yao beast was hidden, and it could jump out at any time and swallow him in one bite.
The path to go up the hill was meandering and circuitous, so he had long been confused, but Ye Chuan appeared to be very familiar with this path. How did he know there was such a lake in this place?
“Look up the book, this is Coiling Dragon Heavenly Pond, the largest lake within Heavenly Yao Sect.”
Ye Chuan indifferently said. Seeing terrified and restless fatty, he suddenly placed his finger in his mouth and whistled, then said: “The book said that this place not only has a beautiful lake, furthermore there is a kind-hearted, graceful and understanding Lady White continuously waiting here for her husband’s reincarnation. Fatty, perhaps you are that person Lady White is looking for.”
“Lady White, where?”
Fatty Zhao Dazhi asked in high spirit.
In the calm and tranquil lake, suddenly a wave rose without any winds, and with a crashing sound, from under the water, a huge head bore out, and looked at fatty who was in high spirits.
With a body as thick as the water vat, a white snake with the entire body completely white who had survived for unknown numbers of years suddenly bore out from the water.
Is this the so-called Lady White?
White is sufficiently white, is this that nice, graceful and understanding Lady White?
Fatty Zhao Dazhi trembled and immediately lost his consciousness.
