Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 283: Are you okay?
The sky gradually got brighter.
The situation of Five Fingered Mount Yin became more and more serious. Trees and vines withered all over the place, and gradually, it spread to the middle area of the mountain from the top. Originally verdant and luxuriant mountain changed into a half yellow and half green mountain. Halfway up the mountain was still green but the part above it had changed into a yellow area without any life.
Ye Chuan sat cross-legged on the ground without any movement. His eyes were still closed, seemingly, the changes of the mountain had nothing to do with him. Little Long’er however was paying close attention to the changes of the mountain. Seeing the soul-shaking changes, he truly experienced the means of Ye Chuan.
When fighting experts, weather and geographical advantages were important. Originally, after Old Demon of Mount Yin returned to his lair, he had both geographical and weather advantage, but in an instant, everything was turned over!
Producing clouds with one turn of the hand and rain with another, in an instant, the situation was reversed. Both cultivation and wisdom were indispensable.
Ye Chuan who had just broken through to Rank 1 Daoist Master realm gradually showed his brilliance!
The Old Demon of Mount Yin who was hiding in the mountain also became silent. That arrogant laughter completely disappeared. He could no longer be excited and also didn’t take the initiative to provoke. The might of Yang Severing Water was much fiercer than he had imagined. After the vines on the ground were corroded and withered, even the roots inside the cave and underground were not spared.
Old Demon of Mount Yin no longer provoked but he also didn’t appear. Both sides were silent and this situation was in a stalemate, waiting for each other to make a move.
Ye Chuan was quietly cultivating on the ground. After breaking through Daoist Master realm and achieving half dragon state, now, he was carefully sensing the changes of his body, silently waiting for an opportunity. Old Demon of Mount Yin was also waiting for the appearance of a chance. Although he knew that there was only a tiny hope, it was still better than rushing out without careful consideration. After suffering heavy damages in succession, he didn’t dare to face Ye Chuan directly again. Only God knows whether Ye Chuan still had that kind of powerful yang rune or not. Moreover, there was Little Long’er who had transformed into a dragon beside him. One collision from that little dragon would break his bones.
Old Demon of Mount Yin who had suffered heavy injuries was unwilling to fight head-on and he also didn’t want to abandon Five Fingered Mount Yin, so he could only hole up like this.
This lair, he had been secretly taking care for more than 100,000 years. It was not easy to achieve current appearance, how could he be willing to abandon it?
Time quickly passed. Now it was already noon.
Noon, it was the time when the sunlight was most powerful. Under this sunlight, Yang Severing Waster not only didn’t evaporated, on the contrary, its power doubled. The trees and vines below the halfway point also began to wither quickly. Looking from far away, this mountain appeared as if a yellow wave from the top of the mountain wanted to engulf the entire Five Fingered Mount Yin. If this continues like this, then, before dark, Five Fingered Mount Yin will be devoid of any life. Old Demon of Mount Yin who had lived for more than 100,000 years will die along with everything on this mountain.
A cold ill wind suddenly blew out from the mountain.
Old Demon of Mount Yin who had been holing up finally rushed out harnessing the ill wind. Then, looking at Ye Chuan, he gnashed his teeth and said, “Brat, you are truly sinister and despicable. You are too ruthless! If you have the ability, then come, fight with this lordship.”
Old Demon of Mount Yin was frightened and also furious. He was so angry that he was depressed in his heart.
He had gone to Mu Clan village to suck vital yang and this was already not the first time he had done so. Every time, everything would go smoothly and he would return with a good result as Old Mu and Mu Shan could do nothing to him. But who would have thought that that father and son would invite these two experts from who knows where to deal with him this time.
The cultivation of Ye Chuan appeared low, but he made him feel uncomfortable!
“Not sinister and not despicable, then how should great matters be done?”
Ye Chuan opened his eyes, and looking at the furious Old Demon of Mount Yin, he evilly smiled and leisurely said, “Previously, I wanted to be a very honest and heroic person, but later, I discover that it was very boring to be such person, so I made a decision to become the most sinister and most despicable person. Ai, it’s too pity, that was not that easy. It’s easy to be sinister and despicable once or twice, but to be sinister and despicable throughout the life, it is very difficult.”
Old Demon of Mount Yin directly spat and he wanted to vomit blood in his heart.
He wanted to use prodding to force Ye Chuan to make a move and lead him into the mountain, and then kill using the familiar terrain. But who would have thought that he would simply not be fooled! He was clearly wearing a robe of the righteous sect, but when he spoke, he stated he wanted to become the most sinister and the most despicable person. Was there anyone in the world who was more cunning and more shameless than him?
The Old Demon of Mount Yin hated Ye Chuan so much that his teeth itched. He suddenly felt that he was much more honest and a perfect gentleman compared to Ye Chuan. And this Ye Chuan was the true evil spirit!
“Youngster, who exactly are you?” The Old Demon of Mount Yin was ready to make move, but he forcibly suppressed his impulse to rush out quite a few times. For the first time, he had thought to negotiate with Ye Chuan.
In the past, he would never have such thoughts. The village head of Mu Clan village, Old Mu had thought of many ways to negotiate with him many times and he had even promised to pay tribute every year, but all of them were rejected by him. But now, he had no choice but to negotiate.
“Big Disciple of Cloud Mist Sect, Ye Chuan.” Ye Chuan replied straightforwardly without hiding anything.
“As it turned out you are the expert of Cloud Mist Sect.” Old Demon of Mount Yin was somewhat surprised. He had long heard that Cloud Mist Sect was getting worse day by day, and all the younger generation disciples were mediocre people. Your mother, who said that?
Rumors are rumors, they do people great harm!
The Old Demon of Mount Yin cursed secretly in his heart but he appeared very respectful on the surface as he said, “This lordship was confused wondering from where noble son came from, but it turned out to be you are the genius of Cloud Mist Sect. Noble son Ye, in what condition will you stop? Whatever compensation Mu Clan village gave you, this lordship can give you double!”
Old Demon of Mount Yin was rich and arrogant. In past 100,000 years, he had plundered many treasures. Since he was injured and couldn’t defeat Ye Chuan, he wanted to use a huge sum to purchase his freedom.
“Good, old yao brother is truly straightforward, compared to those small demons that had just embarked on cultivation, you are very frank. I like that attitude.”
Ye Chuan applauded and the eyes of the Old Demon of Mount Yin shone as he was able to see the hope. But who would have thought that the tone of Ye Chuan would suddenly change, “But, my conditions are very big, can old yao brother agree?”
“Agree, whatever the condition noble son has, feel free to speak!” The Old Demon of Mount Yin suddenly felt this situation was anything but reassuring, but he still toughened his scalp and agreed. At the worst, he would have to part with some treasures, but later, he could look for an opportunity to snatch back twice as much from Ye Chuan.
“First of all, I want a woman. She can’t be too beautiful and also can’t be too ugly. She can’t be too old and she also can’t be too young. That short braided little girl of Mu Clan village just happens to be perfect, I want to betroth her to my little brother.” Ye Chuan opened his mouth to speak his first condition without any politeness. Then, with the corner of his mouth slightly moving upward, he looked at Old Demon of Mount Yin with a smile yet not a smile and said, “Old yao brother, this condition, it shouldn’t be any problem for you, right?”
“This……” The forehead of Old Demon of Mount Yin sweated. He found both nodding and shaking his head inappropriate.
If he had known that Ye Chuan would put such condition earlier, then when he had caught that little girl, he wouldn’t have let her go. Now, how should he agree with Ye Chuan? Could it be that he had to go to Mu Clan village again and capture that little girl?
“Secondly, I still want a woman. She shouldn’t be beautiful but not enough to be ugly. Her cultivation should be at least Rank 7 Daoist Master realm. It would be best if she has peak Daoist Master cultivation base. Of course, if you can bring Half-Sage realm expert, then I will also not reject. My wife is looking for a housekeeper. If I bring back too beautiful housekeeper, then my wife will definitely be unhappy. My wife is much more powerful than me, if she is unhappy, that will be troublesome.” Ye Chuan stated the second condition.
The Old Demon of Mount Yin sweated profusely.
“Third, I still want a woman. I don’t want men. This time, I want a very beautiful woman, a little bit ugly also won’t do. As for cultivation, anything goes. I want to hide her in an unknown cave, for what, you should know. I don’t want my wife to realize her existence. Old yao brother, these requests are simple enough, right?” Ye Chuan wasn’t polite at all.
This time, not only Old Demon of Mount Yin sweated profusely, Little Long’er also had sweats on his forehead. He wondered if Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia or Zhu Sijia heard these words of Ye Chuan, would they transform into a fierce tigress from graceful maidens.
