Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 151: I still like my junior apprentice-sister a bit more
After a good while, Heavenly Empress finally declared where she stood, but she didn’t look towards Ye Chuan, rather looked at Elder Tian Qing standing below and said, “Tian Qing, what do you think?”
“Heavenly Empress, this……”
Elder Tian Qing who held power in his hands to decide numerous affairs daily stammered.
Although Heavenly Empress didn’t agree directly, but it was obvious that she had tacitly agreed to the marriage of Ye Chuan and Heavenly Maiden to form an alliance. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have asked him. Still, since she had already agreed, why was Heavenly Empress still taking the trouble to ask him? Did she want……
Elder Tian Qing pondered and understood the meaning of Heavenly Empress, then he said, “We should continue the alliance by marriage with Cloud Mist Sect. Heavenly Maiden marrying to Cloud Mist Sect’s Big Disciple conforms the tradition of our Heavenly Yao Sect. But, Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia is beautiful and attractive, and her talent is also top notch which appears only once in a millennium, so if they want to marry our Heavenly Empress, then Cloud Mist Sect also should show some sincerity. But, in my view, the current circumstance of Cloud Mist Sect is not very good, so I fear it would be somewhat difficult for them to put out a large number of betrothal gifts. Therefore, how about noble son Ye return our guardian beast White Dragon of Heavenly Pond, and also hand over the technique to activate that restriction of just a moment ago?”
The older the ginger the spicier, Elder Tian Qing quickly understood the intention of Heavenly Empress. Some words were not good for Heavenly Empress to say directly, but he could speak bluntly.
Guardian beast was fine, but that Mountains and Rivers Restriction Ye Chuan had activated just a moment ago was truly too shocking. It was an incomparably ancient restriction, so much so that no-one within the sect knew about its existence, truly was inconceivable.
Using a Heavenly Maiden to exchange such ancient restriction which can withstand Sage realm expert’s attack, it was worth it!
Elder Tian Qing quickly made the decision, and Heavenly Empress who was sitting above also nodded her head slightly, clearly had the same kind of intention.
“No, Master, I……”
Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia was anxious, what she really afraid would happen had happened, but before she finished speaking, she saw the complexion of Heavenly Empress becoming colder, so she hastily shut up and didn’t dare to speak again.
As the only disciple of white-haired Heavenly Empress, she knew the consequences of enraging her master. In front of other people, she did as she pleased, but in front of Heavenly Empress, she didn’t dare to be unbridled.
“Youngster, what do you think?” Heavenly Empress looked towards Ye Chuan.
“Not up to much or to say, very bad.”
Ye Chuan shook his head in all seriousness.
All the people within Heavenly Yao Hall had their eyes wide open looking at Ye Chuan. The requirement of Elder Tian Qing was not excessive at all, as long as he nodded his head, he could hold a beauty and return, but he unexpectedly refused?
Anxious Heavenly Maiden who didn’t know how she could resist this marriage was dumbstruck looking straight at Ye Chuan.
“Youngster, are you reluctant to part with that white snake, or to say that you want to be the only one that grasps that ancient restriction?” Heavenly Empress coldly looked at Ye Chuan and her complexion became somewhat bad.
Strictly calculating, this inter-sect marriage was still somewhat unfavorable to Heavenly Yao Sect, but no-one had thought that Ye Chuan would actually disagree this alliance by marriage.
“No, no, Heavenly Empress, you are misunderstanding. That white snake is your Heavenly Yao Sect’s guardian beast, naturally should be returned to you. I don’t have any plan to take it away. As for the activation technique of Mountains and Rivers Restriction, passing it to you all is also fine, after all, this restriction is your Heavenly Yao Sect’s restriction, I will not take it.”
Ye Chuan looked at white-haired Heavenly Empress, and sincerely said: “My request is actually quite simple, I only want to look for Heavenly Empress to borrow a thing that’s all, I didn’t come to propose a marriage alliance. The looks of this girl Zixia is pretty good and she also has developed very nicely, but, she is not the type of girl I like, I still like my little junior apprentice-sister a bit more.”
Inside the hall, suddenly a commotion rose. People began to talk in whispers looking at Ye Chuan and also looked at Heavenly Maiden who always considered everyone beneath her notice.
Heavenly Empress was surprised, and the complexion of Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia who was standing behind her become red through and through, and she was so angry that her entire body trembled.
This kid, did he actually say that she was not the type of girl he liked, moreover was inferior to his little junior apprentice-sister?
Heavenly Maiden was embarrassed and also angry, she had thought that Ye Chuan had taken a fancy of her, and wanted to eat swan’s meat being a lazy toad, but who would have thought that this brat would unexpectedly speak out such thing! He clearly didn’t come here to purpose a marriage alliance, but he intentionally let everyone misunderstood, persistently assuming innocent and sincere appearance. He was deliberate, deliberately making a fool of her!
Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia was so angry in her heart that if she could, she would have already killed Ye Chuan over and over again. Now she was too embarrassed to face anyone.
“Okay, what do you want to borrow? Speak.” Heavenly Empress quickly responded.
“Heaven Burning Furnace.” Ye Chuan replied. After so many twists and turns, he finally spoke out the purpose of this trip.
Elder Tian Qing, Tian Ku as well as other people were greatly surprised, and said in unison, “Impossible!”
“No, absolutely not! Heavenly Empress, Heaven Burning Furnace is our Heavenly Yao Sect’s defining treasure, ever since the ancient times, it suppresses the fate of our Heavenly Yao Sect. we must not lend it to others!”
Elder Tian Qing quickly stood out and sternly refused, then said clearly, “For millions of years, Cloud Mist Sect has deteriorated steadily, many contemporary powerful sects had also declined, and some had even disappeared in the long river of time, but our Heavenly Yao Sect is flourishing, and nowadays we are aspiring to be unequaled sect in the continent, why? Because of the great efforts of our Heavenly Yao Sect’s successive generations’ disciples, and even more because of the existence of Heaven Burning Furnace, which suppress our fate. If we let other people borrow this peerless treasure, then our ill fate will no longer be suppressed, and we will have to face the imminent disaster!”
Elder Tian Qing who held power in his hand became the first person to stand out to refuse, and there was no room to compromise.
It was fine if Ye Chuan wanted to marry Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia, but if he want to borrow Heaven Burning Furnace which suppressed sect’s fate, then that absolutely wasn’t possible!
“Yes, Heavenly Empress, we absolutely cannot lend!”
“Just opened his mouth but he is already asking Heaven Burning Furnace, the brat is here to create trouble, let’s drive him out!”
Numerous experts of Heavenly Yao Sect simultaneously opposed, all of them rejected this proposal in unison.
“Youngster, you have also seen, it’s not like this mistress also doesn’t want to lend you, rather all the people of the sect are disagreeing, so this mistress could do nothing.”
White-haired Heavenly Empress looked at Ye Chuan, and with Elder Tian Qing and others as the pretext, she slowly said, “How about this, considering the face of your Master Yun Feiwu, as well as, considering you have come from so far, this mistress will give you some flying swords, pills and crystal stones, moreover, make Tian Qing to personally escort you back, isn’t this fine?”
“Not fine, I only want Heaven Burning Furnace.” Ye Chuan refused.
“What if I refuse?” Heavenly Empress looked at Ye Chuan and her complexion sunk.
“Your Highness Heavenly Empress, I fear you cannot!”
Ye Chuan coldly smiled, then looking at numerous experts of Heavenly Yao Sect, he coldly said, “This treasure Heaven Burning Furnace, politely speaking, I came to borrow; bluntly speaking, I came to take it, merely you can think as you please. But if you don’t want to lend, then don’t blame me for being impolite.”
“Are you threatening me?” Heavenly Empress was angry. Her face was covered with a layer of frost, and her hair ends of white hair also stood up.
“You can think so, Your Excellency Heavenly Empress, think carefully, if I truly want to take it away, can you all stop me?”
Ye Chuan talked big. Hearing this, the complexion of all the people within Heavenly Yao Sect changed, they also unsheathed their sword and the air was filled with killing intent, but recalling Ye Chuan could activate Mountains and Rivers Restriction, as well as recalling the scene of Heaven Burning Furnace wrapped in flames slowly rising from the depth of ground, their heart shook.
The more presumptuously Ye Chuan talked big, the more it appeared that he had a well-thought-out plan. With the might of that Mountains and Rivers Restriction he had activated just a moment ago, he truly seemed to have the capability to take away Heaven Burning Furnace!
