Chapter 27 – Touched
“Eighth… eighth-grade beast?” Ye Qingwan was clearly taken aback by the Fire Python Tiger too. Only now did she realize it was Xia Fukun who summoned it.
This guy… this can’t be real, right? How could a fourth-grade beast trainer summon an eighth-grade beast?!
Ye Qingwan couldn’t help but be reminded of what Xia Fukun said to her earlier.
“Erm, I can trust you, right?”
If Xia Fukun’s ability to summon an eighth-grade beast as a fourth-grade beast trainer was spread out… Ye Qingwan believed that it would make not only the Yaslan Empire or the Scarlet Water province crazy, but the entire Nine Spiritual Mainland!
Fourth-grade beast trainer, eighth-grade beast.
Which means that…
He would be able to summon an Assimilation Realm beast when he reaches seventh grade!?
All of a sudden, Ye Qingwan’s breathing became rapid.
At the same time, Xia Fukun appeared next to her. She took a glance at him and asked, “So the giant flying snake at the Misty Swamp was summoned by you, right?”
Xia Fukun smiled, not answering her question.
Looking at Xia Fukun, a weird feeling arose in Ye Qingwan.
She turned to Xia Fukun again subconsciously.
“Aren’t you worried that I’ll spread your secret?”
Hearing her words, Xia Fukun took a deep breath and looked at Ye Qingwan seriously.
“There are only two types of people in my world: friend or foe. My friends are living, and my foes are dead or soon to be.”
Ye Qingwan jumped up in fear and stared at Xia Fukun.
“So which am I?”
Ye Qingwan had seen many guest masters in this world, as she was part of the Ye family, and most were absolutely cruel. They would do anything for themselves and their benefits.
But for a reason she didn’t know, she secretly hoped that Xia Fukun wasn’t such a person.
Xia Fukun smiled at Ye Qingwan’s question.
“You’re the third type.”
“Third type?” Ye Qingwan was slightly taken aback.
“Mm, you’re my woman.”
“Get lost!” Ye Qingwan furrowed her eyebrows and sulked.
“Haha!” Xia Fukun laughed out loud before turning to Yang Guo, who was in despair.
He had vowed to Bu Peng that, with him here, the young mercenaries would surely be taken down. However, he never would’ve thought that…
Both of them are beast trainers! What’s even worse is that the guy can summon a beast that’s way beyond his grade!
I could understand if a fourth-grade beast trainer summoned a fifth-grade beast, but this is an eighth-grade beast!
Even if you want to cheat, isn’t that too much?
I’m Yang Guo, a Warrior Realm martial artist who uses dirty tricks – no, I mean, a sword as my weapon, and it’s impossible for me to defeat an eighth-grade beast.
Very soon, Yang Guo was defeated by the Fire Python Tiger that Xia Fukun summoned.
“I’ll give you another chance, do you have anything valuable on you?” Looking at Yang Guo, who was on his deathbed, Xia Fukun bent down and asked.
Yang Guo never expected that he would have such a day.
When he first came to the Bu Peng family as a guest master, he thought that they were using a sledgehammer to break a nut. Even though he was perhaps just an ordinary martial artist among the entire Nine Spiritual Mainland, Warrior Realm martial artists were considered quite powerful in the Yaslan Empire. For example, Xia Kuangyun was Summer City’s mayor when he was only in the Profound Realm.
However, Yang Guo never thought that his already bad life would get worse.
I’m so sad! My heart is bleeding!
Yang Guo’s mouth moved slightly. He vomited out a mouth of blood.
“This… this young knight, I will give you everything that I get in my life from now on, can you let me live…?”
Xia Fukun laughed.
“Discussing conditions with me? Go and die!”
With that, the Fire Python Tiger pounced up to Yang Guo.
“Wait, wait!” Yang Guo immediately shouted.
“You’ve thought about it?” Xia Fukun turned around to see a storage ring floating toward him.
“My assets are all in this storage ring. I hope Young Knight can keep your promise and let me live….”
Suddenly, Yang Guo’s eyes widened. A sword pierced through his body before he could finish his words.
Xia Fukun turned to Ye Qingwan, who was standing behind Yang Guo’s dead body.
She was still an icy beauty. Despite killing Yang Guo, she maintained a poker face.
“We couldn’t let him live. If he spread your secret, it would have brought you much trouble in the future.”
Hearing Ye Qingwan, Xia Fukun couldn’t help but feel touched. He took a step forward and held Ye Qingwan’s hand in his.
“Do you care for me?”
Ye Qingwan looked at Xia Fukun and took a deep breath.
Xia Fukun chuckled and looked at her seriously.
“I’m not a three-year-old kid, I know who to kill and who not to. It’s just that…” he said, staring at Ye Qingwan in her eyes. “When we get together in the future, I don’t want to see you kill anymore. I do not want your hands to be tainted by blood. I’ll slay all the enemies that block our way.”
After this, Xia Fukun bent down and took Yang Guo’s sword, keeping it in the storage ring. He might’ve been a Profound Realm martial artist, but he didn’t even have any weapons. In wuxia novels, the characters used swords handsomely, so it was time for him to do so as well with Yang Guo’s sword.
Xia Fukun’s words rang through Ye Qingwan’s ears.
A sappy statement, and yet not.
However, it touched her heart for the first time.
The teenager right in front of me, the playful teenager that’s never serious, maybe… he’s better than those so-called geniuses.
“Let’s go. We have to see what the Bu Peng family is up to. My Fire Python Tiger can’t remain summoned for long, so we have to be fast.”
Xia Fukun’s reminder brought Ye Qingwan back to reality. She followed quickly.
