Chapter 77 – Yin-Yang Flower
Translator: Seventh Peril Editor: Anuvrat
Ye Zhong tossed the token in his hand, satisfied with the 200,000 Spirit Value points in it.
Although Luo Long’s strength wasn’t that great, as Lu Fan’s Big Brother, he was even richer than Lu Fan. Now that Ye Zhong had exploited Lu Fan, Ye Zhong was no longer worried about his financial status. But even so, the more Spirit Value points he had, the better.
Squinting his eyes for a moment, Ye Zhong waved his hand to emptied Lue Long’s Spirit Value Token and tossed the token back to him. He then looked back at Wang Mo and said, “Oh right, Wang Mo, give those tokens back to our Senior Brother Luo Long as well. Otherwise, he would have lost too much face if he came to take revenge for his fellow brothers, and not couldn’t even take back their tokens, but also lose 200,000 Spirit Value points. We are all fellow disciples of the same sect, and we must not be merciless when doing things. Don’t we all have to leave a way out for others?”
“Ye Zhong! You…”
Luo Long’s expression changed. He wanted to turn around and leave. However, when he saw Wang Mo smiling as he threw over ten or so Spirit Value Token, he could not help but clench his teeth and catch them. No matter how much he lost his face this time, he wasn’t willing to miss this opportunity. It had to be known that the value of Spirit Value Token was extremely important to the disciples of the Xingxiang Sect. It couldn’t be lost at any cost.
“Senior Brother Luo Long, I will not send you off, and I welcome you all to find trouble with me. As long as you bring enough Spirit Value for me, I promise I will not beat you to death. Please—” Ye Zhong cupped his hands and smiled.
Luo Long’s expression changed drastically. After a while, he clenched his teeth and finally couldn’t say anything harsh back. He turned around and left.
Looking at the retreating figure of Luo Long, Ye Zhong sneered. If this place wasn’t the Xingxiang Sect, he wouldn’t have wasted so much time with these fellows who provoked him. He would have directly slaughtered them to death.
The surrounding disciples of the Xingxiang Sect were all staring at Ye Zhong with odd expressions.
After a long time, quite a few people finally sighed and slowly dispersed with a complicated expression on their faces.
Ye Zhong did not mind the opinions of these people. As long as they did not provoke him, he would not do anything to them. For Ye Zhong, the most important thing at the moment was cultivation. No matter what he wanted to do, or how he had to think of a way to return to the Three Thousand God Realms in the future, without sufficient strength, there was nothing he could do.
Only after instructing Wang Mo to continue his cultivation, Ye Zhong headed towards the Spiritual Medicine Hall once again.
Along the way, many disciples of the Xingxiang Sect looked at Ye Zhong strangely. Ye Zhong had only been at the sect for a month, but he had not lost a single battle since his arrival. This fact shocked many of the disciples. Especially the fact that Luo Long had been defeated in such a miserable manner today. This was completely outside of everyone’s expectations.
“Ye Zhong, you scoundrel!”
When Ye Zhong reached the edge of Mount Xiang’s square, suddenly, a delicate voice sounded from behind him, and Ye Zhong caught a whiff of a fragrant scent wafting towards him from behind.
“Yo… You… You shameless!”
Upon hearing the shout, Ye Zhong quickly turned around to see a girl in a green dress swinging her slender jade leg towards him. Coincidentally, his right hand caught at her ankle. Although it was just a light touch, it still made the girl shy and angry.
The young girl had an oval face and exquisite facial features. She wore a green dress and was captivating.
“Have you caught enough?”
Noticing that Ye Zhong did not intend to loosen his grip, the young lady spoke in embarrassment.
“So it’s you, Xiang Qiyu?”
Ye Zhong frowned and let go of his right hand. The girl had suddenly attacked him from behind. If he had not held back in time, he might have hurt her badly by now.
“It’s good that you still remember me, Xiang Qiyu! I heard that you are very powerful, to be able to obtain the Inheritance of the Innate Temple, and even reaped many benefits! But now that you’re a big shot, you keep refusing our visit! Do you remember what you promised us?” She snorted and shouted at Ye Zhong.
Ye Zhong frowned slightly, remembering that he had promised the three little tail-waggers the other day that he would let them study the Inheritance of the Innate Temple after the event, but he had forgotten about it as he was too busy cultivating in the Xingxiang Sect.
At this moment, there were already many people watching the scene. Ye Zhong had a reputation recently, and the girl in green was rather famous in the Xingxiang Sect. As such, their little dispute at this moment had attracted quite a few curious eyes.
“Qiyu, did this guy bully you? If that’s the case, I will help you teach him a lesson!” A handsome youth among the handsome youths walked out from the side. When his gaze landed on Xiang Qiyu’s exquisite body, his eyes flashed with a lustful gaze.
“Hey, I know you, you are Ye Zhong! Although you are powerful, my Eldest Brother is an Inner Disciple, and is ranked much higher than you! If you dare to mess with my woman, I’ll make sure you pay!”
“Yang Fang, what does my conversation with Senior Brother Ye Zhong have anything to do with you? What’s more, I… and him… I mean…” Noticing that the good-looking youth had stepped out to meddle in her affair, she suddenly frowned at him. Then she actually stepped forward and wrapped her arms around Ye Zhong’s, smiling sweetly as she spoke.
“Eh, that person is Yang Fang. Isn’t his Eldest Brother the Inner Disciple Yang Hao?”
“Is there going to be a good show to watch this time?”
Many of the disciples who witnessed the scene had strange expressions on their faces. This Ye Zhong’s ability to cause trouble seemed pretty good.
Ye Zhong frowned slightly. Looking at Yang Fang’s extremely gloomy face, then at Xiang Qiyu’s smiling face, Ye Zhong felt a chill in his heart.
Although Ye Zhong knew that Xiang Qiyu probably used him as a shield to avoid Yang Hao, her actions just now made Ye Zhong have a bad impression of her, and he was not interested in provoking another Inner Disciple for her at all. Even though he was not afraid of that so-called Inner Disciple.
“Ye Zhong, it’s fine that you pursue Senior Sister Su Yu, but you also pursue Junior Sister Xiang Qiyu as well. Aren’t you afraid of death?” Yang Fang looked at Ye Zhong, jealous to the point of going crazy.
“Scram.” Ye Zhong swept a nonchalant glance at Yang Fang and pulled his arm away. He then looked at Xiang Qiyu and said, “Go to my courtyard, and ask Wang Mo to transcribe a copy of the Spiritual Secret Art for you.”
With that said, Ye Zhong headed straight for the Spiritual Medicine Hall. He had no interest in talking nonsense with these people.
“Good! Ye Zhong, you are very good! Don’t think that you’re great just because you’ve defeated Luo Long. Let me tell you, you—” Yang Fang glared at Ye Zhong and spoke harshly.
Before he could finish his sentence, Ye Zhong casually sent him flying with a slap.
A faint voice rang out, startling the entire audience. Obviously, no one had expected that Ye Zhong would not only ignore Yang Fang, but he did not even care about Yang Hao’s face. No one knew if he was confident, or if he was just ignorant and fearless.
Surprise flashed across Xiang Qiyu’s eyes. Even though she had worked with Ye Zhong before, she knew that her Senior Brother was powerful. However, she did not expect the current Ye Zhong to be this powerful.
“Senior Brother Ye Zhong, how about I treat you to a meal today, I…” At this moment, Xiang Qiyu seemed to have forgotten about the fact that Ye Zhong grabbed her ankle, and walked towards him with a smile.
“No need.” With Ye Zhong’s sharp wit, it was obvious that Xiang Qiyu was trying to get involved with him, using him as a shield. He did not like her behaviour. Moreover, the two did not have a close relationship. That day at the Innate Temple, if he had known of her temperament, he would not have cared about their lives.
“Also, after copying the Spiritual Secret Art, our partnership will be over. You don’t owe me, and I don’t owe you anything.” After taking half a step, Ye Zhong seemed to recall something, he turned around and left in big strides.
Xiang Qiyu was slightly stunned. She could vaguely notice that Ye Zhong had seen through her thoughts.
All sorts of Spirit Herbs floated within the crystal-like bubbles in the Spiritual Medicine Hall. Ye Zhong walked around the hall for a while, but did not find the Yin-Yang Flower he wanted.
However, this was also within Ye Zhong’s expectations. Previously, the Purple Wood Spirit Root was relatively easy to find. But Yin-Yang Flowers were extremely hard to find, they were things that could not be found unless one had a fortuitous encounter with them. Thus, not being able to find it in the Spiritual Medicine Hall was a very normal thing.
However, to Ye Zhong, the Yin-Yang Flower was something essential. Therefore, after hesitating for a moment, he walked toward the counter.
“Yin-Yang Flower?” The girl behind the counter frowned slightly. After thinking for a moment, she shook her head and said, “We originally had this item in our Spiritual Medicine Hall. However, you came a little too slowly. I’m afraid that obtaining that Yin-Yang Flower now won’t be that easy.”
Upon hearing this, Ye Zhong frowned slightly, but he was determined to get the Yin-Yang Flower. He thought for a moment, then took out his Spirit Value Token and casually withdrew 1,000 Spirit Value points to bribe the girl before him.
Just seeing how far Ye Zhong wanted to get the item, the girl smiled before narrowing her eyes, she then said softly, “A few days ago, it’s Elder Ling Wei of the Spiritual Talisman Hall who took away the only Yin-Yang Flower. I don’t know what he wanted it for, but if you go to his place to try your luck, you might be able to find it.”
“Also,” For the sake of 1,000 Spirit Value points she had received, the young girl hesitated for a moment before smiling, “Elder Ling Wei has a weird personality, it might not be easy to get something from him. However, he likes gambling, so perhaps, you can start with that.”
Hearing this, Ye Zhong nodded his head and walked out of the hall.
