Chapter 340: Cudgel Ones Brain
Translated by Crystal of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
Before leaving the South, Ling Xiao pulled You XiaoMo over to make him do a briefing of their trip. His attitude was as if it was an annual report, by You XiaoMo standards that was highly suspicious.
What was there to conclude? So, You XiaoMo asked in confusion, Do I really need to?
Ling Xiao nodded seriously, Yes, let me hear your thoughts.
Ehhhh. You XiaoMo scratched his head and said, Im happy to see my relatives, knowing the whereabouts of my father makes me happy, andand
Sneakily, You XiaoMo peeked at Ling Xiao, Do you want to add anything?
Ling Xiao became angry to the point of laughing. He knew he couldnt count on You XiaoMos brain and instead went straight to the point, About the TianXin Sect, what are your thoughts?
You XiaoMo blinked a little, The TianXin Sect huhMy thought is, its too bad we didnt get to see Da ShiXiong and Second ShiXiong. I wonder where they went for training, I want to meet them again.
Squinting his eyes Ling Xiao asked, Thats it?
Seeing the dangerous expression, he was making, You XiaoMo knew he didnt get to the point but no matter how hard he tried, he couldnt think of anything else. Out of ideas, he carefully asked, Maybe, you can give me a hint?
Ling Xiao rubbed his hair and answered, Is your way of treating people to treat them back double if theyre nice to you?
You XiaoMo replied obviously, Of course, it isnt this normal?
In his previous life, he didnt have many friends, you could count them with one hand. It wasnt because he was a loner but because his family was strict. They kept a tab of who he became friends with so when he just start a friendship with a classmate, his family would scare them away.
Especially his devil like brothers, for some reason they had to test all of his friends, too see if they were worthy. Of course, that just scared them away.
Whenever he remembered this he became super frustrated, those two were such a pain!
But it was because of that he treasured his friends very much.
So, Ling Xiao continued asking, Your lingering feelings towards the TianXin Sect, is it because of your three ShiXiong?
Without thinking You XiaoMo said, Of course. If Zhao ShiXiong left as well, then I wouldnt have a reason to go to the TianXin Sect. After he said this, he looked over at Ling Xiao suspiciously, Youre really weird today, why did you bring this up all of a sudden? Is there something youre not telling me?
Suddenly Ling Xiao laughed and raised his finger to hook You XiaoMos nose, Seeing that youve suddenly became smarter, Ill let you in on a secret.
You XiaoMos eyes went wide. There really was something?
Ling Xiao whispered to You XiaoMos ears, About two years ago, when we left the TianXin Sect, I told a secret to your Da ShiXiong and Second ShiXiong.
You XiaoMo froze. It took a second before he found his voice again, Wha-What secret?
What do you think? Ling Xiao asked in return.
You XiaoMo stayed silent for a while before asking, You actually told them? Its not a prank, right? There was too much precedence for You XiaoMo to not be vary.
Why would I lie, its not like I get to eat your saliva.
You XiaoMo didnt blush, instead he rubbed his hand together nervously, UmmWhat were theyre reactions?
Ling Xiao looked at him expressionlessly and suddenly smiled.
As if a bucket of cold water was dumped on him, You XiaoMo felt cold inside out, was he tricked again?
Ling Xiao said, Actually I didnt say everything, I just told him that Kong Wen had died. He set his eyes on someone elses treasure and wanted to kill for it, but instead he died. Although
Just as You XiaoMo let out a breath of air, the although made him panic again. Stuttering he asked, Although what?
Ling Xiao continued, Although it would seem as if they guessed it already. Want to know their reactions?
You XiaoMo kicked him.
Ling Xiao grinned, Fang ChenYue blanked for a second, Fu ZiLin just let out a oh sound and they both left after acknowledging they knew. Looking at them, it seems like they were unsurprised.
Blinking You XiaoMo asked, Thats it?
Ling Xiao nodded, Thats it, but I think they were playing dumb.
Playing dumb seemed like a good option, if You XiaoMo was in that situation, he would probably do the same. As long as everyone had a mutual understanding, it seemed like he didnt need to worry anymore.
Looking up, You XiaoMo stared at Ling Xiao with sparkling eyes. Ling Xiao rubbed his head in return, Yes, you dont have to worry about it anymore.
You XiaoMo responded by putting his hands around his waist and laughing. It was so great to let go of a burden.
After he finished, Ling Xiao chilled his excitement, After this, if there is no need to, dont get into contact with Ye Han.
A sudden stop came to the laughing, You XiaoMo threw over a question, Why?
Ling Xiao continued matter of factly, If he can sell us out once, he can do it again. Ye Hans roots are at the TianXin Sect so regardless of me being there, strong or not, his only has one option and thats to protect the TianXin Sect.
You XiaoMo paused for a moment, he had never thought about this before. When he met Zhao ShiXiong, he told him the reason Ye ShiShu revealed their location was because he knew Ling Xiao was strong enough to deal with them. Everything was built on that notion that Ling Xiao was stronger.
This was what Ye-shishu told Zhao ShiXiong to relay. After Ling Xiao gave the hint, he realized he was tricked.
Since it was told by Zhao ShiXiong, who he hadnt seen for two years, when they met, his attention wouldnt be on the conversation and so he would have no suspicions. But if it was someone else, like those other fellow disciples who he was not close with, the situation would be very different.
The most important thing though, he realized, by Zhao DaZhous strength, this task of going to DaoXin academy was too much for him to handle..
He was just a level five mage with no fighting power. Enough with the cute little tiger, humans were deceptive, and Zhao DaZhou was not very clever. If he got tricked by someone with ulterior motives, hed be dead. For the TianXin Sect, Ye Han-shishu would cudgel his brain out.
Seeing his troubled face, Ling Xiao knew he understood, I wont object to you meeting with your seniors but only as pure friends. Anything related to the TianXin Sect you shouldnt be involved with.
You XiaoMo looked at him listlessly, Okay, but didnt you help Zhou Peng-shixiong get to where he is now? He seems like your little brother.
At that, Ling Xiao raised his eyebrow, Thats his path to take, I just gave him an opportunity. Even if he destroys it, it has nothing to do with me.
You XiaoMo bared his teeth, he thought that Ling Xiao wanted to make the TianXin Sect be his first place of power in this middle level realm since he wasnt one to help without a reason. But it seemed like he was wrong, Ling Xiao didnt plan on having any influences on Long Xiang Continent.
Seeing that Nan Ye City was up ahead, You XiaoMo remembered a question. Ling Xiao had said before that he came to a middle-levelled realm for to find someone, and that someone was him.
To be honest, he was certain they had no interactions before this and as for the original You XiaoMo, if Ling Xiao knew him, he would know his identity. Clearly, he didnt, so it was most likely Ling Xiao found him by his soul.
Ling Xiao, what you said in the trials, about my past, its it true? After the atmosphere was silent, for a while, You XiaoMo couldnt help but ask. Ling Xiao didnt seem like one of those evil-doers with a terrible past. Also, if he really were to fight with the QiLin Clan and the Demon Phoenix Clan, shouldnt he develop his influence or recruit some underlings? The more he thought, the more things didnt add up, the chance of this being a lie was very high.
Ling Xiao let out a sign, What is there to lie about? Its not like youre going to give me your heart. Seriously, I tell you the truth and you dont believe me. Do I have to lie for you to trust me?
You XiaoMo felt a little guilty, Thats because you had such a bad record previously. But what does your past have to do with you finding me?
Ling Xiao said, When did I say these two things were related?
Now You XiaoMo was confused, Then why did you come find me?
From the corner of Ling Xiaos eyes, he could see You XiaoMos face shine in expectation and said, The reasonI cant tell you right now.
This got You XiaoMos interested and he said impatiently, Why cant you say?
Ling Xiao replied warmly and caringly, Im afraid youll feel pressured. The reason I found you is not simple, if I tell you now, it might be a hindrance to your training so its best if you stay oblivious to it.
You XiaoMo felt his mouth twitching, he really didnt like this conclusion one bit, Fine, lets not think about these questions anymore. See, we are at Nan Ye City already.
