Chapter 75 – I’ll have to see.
Ye Zifeng was never a courteous person so when he saw Bingqian invite him, he went right into the carriage.
As he was climbing onto the carriage, he almost collided with a young lady inside.
The young master was dressed in all white with very light red lips. No matter how you look at it, she looked like a very sick girl.
“So it was Miss Jing. I’m sorry. Did I hurt you?” Ye Zifeng quickly cupped his hands and apologized.
Yang Jing was here to bring Bingqian to Tiandao City so her presence here wasn’t a surprise to Ye Zifeng.
Yang Jing shook her head and didn’t mind it, “The carriage is a bit small. It’ll be a tight fit with three people in here. Bumping into each other is something that’s bound to happen. Don’t worry about it.”
Bingqian giggled and got in the carriage as well.
“He’s a rough guy. He won’t be worrying about it at all.”
“I’m a prudent person. How am I rough?”
Liu Bingqian started to laugh, “Because I said so. You can’t retort against it!”
Ye Zifeng raised his brows and shook his head while laughing. He really didn’t understand women. Women were people that he couldn’t argue with at all. He knows that he’ll lose no matter what he says. Now that there were two women in front of him, he can’t say anything carelessly.
He started to think about something and couldn’t help but open his mouth, “It’s kinda strange. The Liu clan isn’t lacking money. Why are you guys using such a small carriage? Isn’t this kinda making the Liu clan lose face?”
Liu Bingqian sighed and shook her head, “To tell you the truth, I want to ride in a big carriage too. However, the Liu clan’s carriage was sabotaged by someone last night so we had to use the smaller backup carriage.”
“Sabotaged? Who would dare touch something from the Liu clan?” Ye Zifeng was surprised.
“I thought it was strange too but we can’t help it either. It already happened. It’s very hard to investigate something so insignificant like this.”
Liu Bingqian sighed again. She didn’t want to look into this either and treated it as a prank from someone.
Ye Zifeng smiled, “I got it. Since the big carriage is broken, we have to use the smaller carriage. So this was why Uncle Liu allowed you guys to come over and pick me up. Putting a small carriage in front of the Liu clan is really embarrassing for you guys isn’t it?”
Ye Zifeng sighed in his heart. Liu Mu would go this far to save face for his own clan. So this was why the Liu clan was able to maintain their position as one of the three great clans in Leizhou City for so long…. It’s because Liu Mu had always been working hard for the clan and cared for it so much. Compared to Ye Chongtian, Liu Mu was on another level as the master of a clan.
Ye Zifeng thought about it some more and felt a bad feeling. The entire city knows about his plans to go to Tiandao City with Liu Bingqian. If they dared to sabotage the Liu clan’s property, then they’re probably not scared of the Liu clan.
With this reasoning, the chances of it being someone from the Wang clan is very high. He then thought about Wang Lin.
“What’s up? Why did your expression suddenly become so unsightly?” Liu Bingqian asked.
“Hold on Bingqian. Don’t talk for a sec and let me think.”
Ye Zifeng calmed himself down and closed his eyes. A strand of cold qi flew from the carriage towards the Ashen Spirit SEct.
At the same time, in the Nurturing Heart Hall, Shen Liu’s expression suddenly changed.
“Well, the lesson will end early today. You guys go and rest for a bit and I’ll bring Elder Lin here for the next lesson.” Shen Li suddenly ended his lecture which caused many students to be confused.
His face sank as he quickly walked out of the lecture hall.
He closed his eyes and started to connect with Ye Zifeng.
“Ye Zifeng you brat. What is it now? Do you have some troublesome task for me again?”
Shen Li as different from Elder Zhao. He calls Ye Zifeng by brat and Elder Zhao adds a word in front and calls him a stinking brat.
Ye Zifeng smiled, “Elder Shen. It’s not that troublesome. It’s just that I’m leaving Leizhou City right now and I’m afraid that someone is tailing me, trying to ambush me….”
Shen Li’s became furious, “I’ll skin whoever that dares to harm you!”
“The Wang clan. Do you dare to skin them?”
“Oh… Someone from the Wang clan? Well then…. I’ll leave them be.”
Hearing this, Shen Li stuttered for a bit and then awkwardly smiled, “No way. How can it be someone from the Wang clan? I warned Wang Tianzhi already. I know how he is. Even if he’s really mad, he won’t do anything to you right now.”
“You warned Wang Tianzhi. This doesn’t mean that his brothers will let me go. If I’m not wrong, then the one who wants to harm me might be Wang Lin.” Ye Zifeng muttered.
“The youngest young master huh….. If it’s him… Then that might be possible.”
Shen Li thought about that bossy and domineer but weak younger brother Wang Lin….. The younger brother Wang Lin usually do things without using his head and might really be ambushing Ye Zifeng…
“What do you want me to do then?”
Ye Zifeng smiled, “It’s simple. Use your soul’s divine sense to check if there’s anyone following me.”
“What? You’re calling this simple?” Shen Li was dumbstruck. If Ye Zifeng was in front of him right now, he would take his shoes off and smack him on the head with it right now.”
“Then… You can come over and protect me…..”
“Nonsense! Do you think I have time to go over and protect you as one of the three elders of the sect?”
Ye Zifeng smiled, “Is that so?”
Shen Li was startled. He wanted to yell at him but stopped himself.
He finally realized his mistake. Becoming a host of the Heavenly Clan Gathering was a grave mistake. Meeting Ye Zifeng was the thing that he regretted the most in his life.
“Okay. I’ll listen to you and use my divine sense to help you check your surroundings.”
Shen Li took a deep breath and sent his divine sense towards Ye Zifeng.
A while later, Shen Li replied, “Hold on. Brat. Are you almost out of the city? I checked the surroundings already. There’s no one following you.”
Ye Zifeng was startled, “No way. Are your senses limited because you’re too far away?”
Shen Li couldn’t hold back and yelled at Ye Zifeng, “You brat. How can you underestimate my abilities? Let’s not talk about you still being in the city, but even if you’re almost in Tiandao City, as long as I know where you are, I can easily check up on you.”
He didn’t lie and say that he could sense Ye ZIfeng even if he was in Tiandao City. Instead he said almost in the City. This was because there was a special formation in cities that Martial Practitioner realm cultivators aren’t able to feel through from the outside.
If it was somewhere between the two cities, he was able to check up on Ye Zifeng if he knew his position.
Ye Zifeng muttered to himself, “That’s strange. If Wang Lin wants to ambush me, he should be following me right now? Could it be that the ones who destroyed the carriage wasn’t someone from the Wang clan? Was it just a prank?”
Hearing this, Shen Li became curious, “What’s that about a destroyed carriage?”
Ye Zifeng thought about it again and smiled, “Alright. I’m good. I’m getting a bit too far now. With my cultivation, I can’t keep up the connection with you. If something really happens, then I’ll notify you again….”
“If something really happens, can I even get there in time? Also you brat, what do you see me as?” Shen Li started to yell at him. He saw how Ye Zifeng was treating himself like a bodyguard, casually calling for himself whenever he wanted. Shen Li was a bit unhappy about this.
Ye Zifeng didn’t care at all and opened his eyes. The connection between the two was cut off.
“What happened big brother rough guy? Are you alright? You look very pale, almost as pale as sister Jing!” Liu Bingqian was very worried.
Ye Zifeng smiled, “I’m fine. That’s right. Did something happen while I was dozing off?”
“Something happen?” Liu Bingqian thought about it and shook her head, “No. Nothing stranged happened. Oh yeah. We’re almost out of the city.”
Yang Jing looked outside and smiled, “Oh yeah. Young master Ye, could it be that it’s your first time out of the city? Is that why you’re so nervous?”
Ye Zifeng laughed and looked out the windows. He looked afar and had a complicated look on his face.
“Could it be that I’m too sensitive?”
His expression then changed, “Even if you want to ambush us, you can’t go and deliberately destroy the carriage and inadvertently alert the enemy……. Are my opponents retards or are they really smart? Hehe… I’ll just have to wait and see.
