Chapter 150: Let’s Bet
Luo LingXiao sneered, “In the previous test, Tao friend Jiang not only beat me, but also took away the prize that originally belonged to me, so now I want to make a bet with you!”
Jiang Yun raised his eyebrow and asked, “What do you want to bet on?”
“If you can beat me in this test, then I promise to double the prize you got; but if you lose, then you should give back all the things you got!”
Luo LingXiao’s words made many cultivators around secretly frowned. Although they understood that Luo LingXiao’s behavior was mainly to humiliate Jiang Yun and take revenge for his humiliation; but as a little lord, such behavior was really a bit out of place.
Because he could and should make this bet before he had taken the test. While now, he had passed the test before he made the bet with Jiang Yun, which made it pretty clear that he was deceiving and bullying Jiang Yun.
Jiang Yun frowned and fell into hesitation.
In the eyes of others, Jiang Yun’s action made them feel that he must be a little timid. After all, Luo LingXiao’s current test result was the best among the nearly thousand cultivators.
In fact, Jiang Yun was actually a little embarrassed and shy.
Things I have gained are quite huge since I have come to Luo family. Moreover, I am still secretly planning to take away the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips. If I win more things from Luo LingXiao, will it be too much?
Seeing that Jiang Yun did not speak, Luo LingXiao raised his eyebrows and said, “What? Is Tao friend Jiang afraid of it? Or, do you look down on prizes given by my Luo family?”
“Uhhh…” Jiang Yun touched his nose and said, “No. it’s just that although those things are precious, they are of little use for me now. If little Lord Luo can change your bet, then I can consider it. ”
“What kind of bet?”
“If I lose, I will return everything, and apologize to you. But if I am lucky enough to win, I don’t want anything else but only the Golden Demonic Ape!”
This sentence made the crowd suddenly calm down. even Xiao Zheng was shocked.
Because Jiang Yun was really asking for too much!
The Golden Demonic Ape was a Primacy Demonic Beast, whose strength could be comparable to a cultivator of the Blessing Land Realm. Even, its strength could continuously improve. It was definitely priceless, even for Luo family, a family of demon refining, may probably be unwilling to bet on it.
Luo LingXiao was in silence as well.
Jiang Yun smiled slightly, “What’s up? Does little Lord Luo dare not to bet? Or, may you not believe in your own strength and be worried that you will lose to me?”
Actually, Jiang Yun had no desire to bet. But since Luo LingXiao had always been clashed with him, then he simply increased the bet. What’s more, he really liked that Golden Demonic Ape.
Luo LingXiao really did not dare. It did not matter to lose something else, but he had no right to decide the ownership of a Primacy Demonic Beast yet.
However, at this time, Luo Qing’s voice suddenly sounded, “The Golden Demonic Ape has great use for our Luo family. Therefore, it can’t be set as a bet. But as long as Tao friend Jiang can beat LingXiao, I can give you a qualification to enter the Demon-Refining World!”
Luo Qing’s sudden voice made everyone stunned, especially Jiang Yun. The next second, his eyes flashed a cold light!
Because, according to what Luo Qing said before, once the Demon-Refining World was opened, every force present would get a quota, which naturally included Jiang Yun.
But now, he simply took the qualification of entering the Demon-Refining World as a bet.
In this way, even if Jiang Yun won, he would not get any benefit; instead, if he lost, not only the things that he previously acquired should be returned to Luo family, but also he had to apologize to Luo LingXiao.
This was clearly to bully Jiang Yun, but no one could do any favor or speak for him. After all, the Demon-Refining World belongs to the Luo family. Luo family had the right to decide who was eligible to enter it!
“Let’s bet! Jiang Yun!” At the same time, Luo LingXiao shouted.
With the support of his Forefather, he would have a little hesitation. His voice sounded very loud.
“Okay!” Jiang Yun did not hesitate too much. Because he must enter the Demon-Refining World, which was actually the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips.
After that, Jiang Yun cupped his hand to many cultivators around him and asked, “Is there any Tao friend who is willing to be a witness?!”
However, every cultivator looked to each other and no one dared to stand up.
Of course no one dared to! They were in the Luo family now; if they helped to be a witness, and if Jiang Yun won, then they were actually offending the Luo family.
If there was no Demon-Refining-World thing, there may be someone standing up; but now whether they could enter the Demon-Refining World were decided by Luo Qing. Hence, no one spoke for Jiang Yun.
However, what everyone did not expect was that Xiao Zheng nodded and said, “Well, I would like to be a witness for Tao friend Jiang!”
Jiang Yun did not care about others’ attitude. He just bowed to Xiao Zheng, then looked at Luo LingXiao and said, “Little Lord Luo, may I start right now?”
Although Luo LingXiao did not regard Jiang Yun as a threat, and he did not think that Jiang Yun could really achieve a better result than himself, he could not help but getting nervous at this moment; he observed Jiang Yun’s every move carefully.
Others naturally had a similar behavior. Even Xie XiaoYong had widened her eyes and watched.
Jiang Yun smiled slightly. He reached out a hand which was then hanging over the pile of sesame seeds. He said, “Little Lord Luo, don’t blink now.”
With his voice fell, a stream of Spiritual Energy was shot from his palm. It easily grasped a sesame seed and placed it in the jade bottle.
The layman watched the surface with excitement, while the expert saw the nature!
Everyone present was surely an expert in Tao cultivation.
Although Jiang Yun just picked up one sesame seed, his smooth action shocked everyone.
Jiang Yun’s precise control of the Spiritual Energy was definitely beyond anyone present!
Even Xie XiaoYong was not as good as him.
Luo LingXiao’s face changed abruptly. Until this moment, he finally understood that Jiang Yun had pretended to be hesitated when he had come up with the bet!
But now even if he realized this, it was useless to regret.
However, of course he refused to be defeated by Jiang Yun again, so he was quickly thinking in his mind, “No, I can’t let him win me again. I must think of a way!”
The period of ten seconds was very short. Jiang Yun naturally would not waste it. So under the gaze of everyone, he quickly picked up the sesame seeds and put them into the jade bottle one by one.
“One, two, three…”
Almost everyone was silently calculating the number for Jiang Yun.
“Seven, eight, nine, time is up!”
Jiang Yun finally put nine sesame seeds into the jade bottle.
This achievement not only exceeded all the participants and Xie XiaoYong, but even Xiao Zheng.
Because Xie XiaoYong had said that Xiao Zheng could only picked up eight sesame seeds within ten seconds.
People in shocking look all concentrated their views on the nine sesame seeds inside the jade bottle.
However, only Xiao Zheng who just glanced at the jade bottle then turned his gaze to Jiang Yun. He stared at Jiang Yun, showing a meaningful color in his eyes.
Although Xiao Zheng was equally shocked like other people were, he had a strong feeling that Jiang Yun could make a grade far beyond nine seeds.
Jiang Yun showed such a grade should be only due to his previous words, that as long as Jiang Yun could surpass him in the talent of medicine refining, he would not be qualified to accept him as a disciple and he had to take him back to the Grand Medicine Sect instead.
Now, Jiang Yun showed his control of the Spiritual Energy, which was just beyond his a little bit!
This could not be a coincidence. Jiang Yun must be doing it deliberately!
Regardless of whether it was intentional or not, Jiang Yun’s performance really gave Xiao Zheng a surprise. However, when he just wanted to announce the final result, Luo LingXiao suddenly yelled, “Wait! This test is not fair!”
