Being an Author is a High Risk Occupation [Chapters 13 - 26] - 26
Valley Master Ding Ruojian promptly pulled the witch off and didn’t let her red lips touch his face. He threw her off him and took a deep breath. Qi Ruxue saw Ding Ruojian’s actions and immediately took out two cotton balls and stuffed them into her ears.
Ding Ruojian said, “You’re too impudent! How can you, as the Master of Qingyu Lou, one of the seven major sects, be so improper? You represent Qingyu Lou’s image. Qingyu Lou is one of the seven major sects. You should also be aware that blah blah……”
Qi Ruxue handed Zhuohua two cotton balls. “When he’s like this, the words that he says are useless nonsense. You don’t have to listen to them.” She pointed to Ding Ruojian’s waving hands as he spoke.
“He’ll put his hands behind his back when he talks about something important.” This way, she could prevent her ears from being tormented.
Zhuohua quietly took the cotton balls and looked strangely at the witch’s excited expression. She not only could listen to him, but nodded her head and answered “Yes” from time to time.
“Shifu can do it as long as it’s a beauty. Other than that, no physical or mental attacks can harm her.”
Zhuohua stuck the cotton balls in her ears.
She was indeed worthy of being Qingyu Lou Master.
Zhuohua couldn’t compare to her!
Ziche DuanYuan took Pei BuFan back to the courtyard. Pei BuFan immediately ran out and went to a side room to find Gong Yi. Although Gong Yi was a pitiful person, but the male lead wouldn’t look at him even if he stayed by the male lead’s side! He wasn’t his fated partner! Thus, Pei BuFan had no pressure getting rid of him.
Ziche DuanYuan frowned. He opened the door to the magic treasure and Pei BuFan ran out impatiently. The doubts in his heart turned into anger when he saw the direction that Pei BuFan ran in.
He had forgotten that an outsider lived in his courtyard.
He should have dealt with him a long time ago!
Ziche DuanYuan frowned deeply. He pursed his lips as he followed along briskly. He wanted to know why Pei BuFan was so anxiously looking for him.
What could he do? What could Pei BuFan, a black cat who couldn’t speak, do? Scratch him maybe.
Ziche DuanYuan didn’t like Gong Yi anyway. He had long seen through his intentions. If Pei BuFan expressed his dislike of Gong Yi, the male lead, with his personality, would certainly kick Gong Yi away.
With Gong Yi’s aptitude, as long as he didn’t always search for someone to press him down and worked hard with his own efforts, he would certainly have some success.
In any case, it had to be better than looking at his pitiful face!
But Pei BuFan turned over Gong Yi’s room and couldn’t find him.
Where did he go?
Ziche DuanYuan also discovered the same problem when he arrived.
Servants who came to serve their masters were basically the same as having sold their bodies. They belonged to their masters from top to bottom. Let’s not mention running away, but if they even talked too much to someone else, the masters could suspect them of betrayal and kill them.
But judging from Gong Yi’s room, it was evident that no one had lived there for a long time.
Pei BuFan calculated in his heart. It should be two days after the male lead left that he hadn’t come back.
‘What to do?’ Pei BuFan asked anxiously. ‘Does this count as successfully kicking him away?’
The system answered after a long silence: [Does not count. Find the person and have the male lead personally kick him away.]
‘So this Ye has to find him first, right?’
‘Hehe…… System, give me a little arrow!’
[…… The person is still in Jianxian Valley. Find him yourself.] The system didn’t want to pay attention to Pei BuFan’s lazy attitude.
Pei BuFan was startled. He was still in Jianxian Valley?
Ziche DuanYuan bent down to pick Pei BuFan up in his arms to examine the room. The things of value in the room were gone. However, daily necessities such as clothing were still there. Ziche DuanYuan rummaged around. He pretty much had a guess in his heart.
He intended to ignore it, but his eyes landed on the black cat in his arms. He changed his mind and took out a small jade card.
He should let Pei BuFan see Gong Yi’s true character, lest he kept thinking about him. Gong Yi just had an above average face. So what? Could it be that he was as good-looking as Ziche DuanYuan?
He stirred the heart’s blood that was on the jade card. This was the contract that Gong Yi had signed when he followed them. As long as he crushed the jade card, Gong Yi would die. He could also use the jade card to find Gong Yi at any time.
The jade card turned into a beam of light and flew eastwards. Ziche DuanYuan coldly snorted and carried Pei BuFan to follow.
The jade card stopped in front of the third floor of the palace. Ziche DuanYuan frowned and took the jade card back. He slowly stepped inside. With the token of the Valley Master’s direct disciple, he could freely access most of the palace. This was a testing hall for elders. As long as he didn’t intrude into the private territory of the elders, Ziche DuanYuan could go anywhere.
As soon as they stepped into the hall, Ziche DuanYuan and Pei BuFan heard a familiar voice from the back where the disciples lived.
“Yi’er is telling the truth.” The voice was frail and pitiful. Every word was filled with infinite grievances. “He liked me, so he brought me to this Middle Realm, but he shortly abandoned me. Yi’er thought that he was true to me, so I was willing to give everything to come to Jianxian Valley. Yi’er was willing to be a slave to serve him, but in the end……” He started sobbing.
Ziche DuanYuan was so angry that his body trembled.
Pei BuFan looked carefully at Ziche DuanYuan and slowly huddled into a ball. I didn’t hear anything. I don’t know anything……
“Since he abandoned me, why should I waste my heart on him?! You dage, please let Yi’er stay here! Yi’er is willing to serve You dage. Yi’er is willing to stay far away from him and never see him again……”
If one looked at the general meaning of the words without paying attention to the details, it could be considered to be the truth.
If one didn’t look at the details……
Who was the one who abandoned whom?! He didn’t want to bring this person along from the very beginning!! Like him? He wasn’t blind yet! Insisted on bringing him here? If Pei BuFan hadn’t begged him, he would have kicked him into the next life! Being a slave was wronging you? Then he shouldn’t have knelt and begged to follow along!!
If it wasn’t for Pei BuFan, would he bring……
Ziche DuanYuan pinched Pei BuFan’s butt, which made the latter shudder in pain.
Pei BuFan: How much hatred do you have against this Ye’s butt? qaq
Ziche DuanYuan had no patience to listen to any more. He strode over and fiercely asked, “Who do you think you are?!”
Gong Yi, whose cultivation was low, hadn’t detected that the male lead was there. His face turned white from fright when he saw him.
“Like you?” Ziche DuanYuan looked him up and down and coldly sneered. “Just a face smeared with white powder and mimics a woman’s speech and walk. Why would I like you? Am I blind? You also smell……”
Pei BuFan: “Achoo!”
Ziche DuanYuan: ……
The man who was being confessed to: ……
Gong Yi: ……
Pei BuFan swished his tail. My nose was itchy. You continue. I never knew that the male lead’s mouth is so vicious.
Ziche DuanYuan continued, “I brought you here as a servant to clean out my black cat’s litter box. With your looks……” The male lead looked Gong Yi up and down again and coldly sneered, clearly not putting him in his eyes.
Pei BuFan: What does this have to do with this Ye?! This Ye doesn’t need anyone to help with kitty litter!! This Ye can find his own place!!
Gong Yi was ashen and his body was trembling.
Ziche DuanYuan returned the jade card to Gong Yi and continued, “Don’t you want this back? I’m returning it to you.” Then he said to the man who had been staring at Ziche DuanYuan in surprise, “If this Daoist friend likes someone like this, you can directly take him away.” He turned to leave.
Gong Yi held the jade card in his hand and stood there motionlessly.
The man suddenly woke up like he was dreaming. He chased after Ziche DuanYuan and left Gong Yi there.
“This Daoist friend, wait!”
Ziche DuanYuan looked at him with an impatient face.
“Apologies.” The man touched his nose. “I don’t have much relation with him. He accidentally fell a few days ago and I caught him. Then he…… Hehe. I’m not very good at refusing people.”
Pei BuFan: I can tell. Very dull.
No wonder he was bothered by Gong Yi. Since he lived here, he must an elder’s direct disciple. His status was high and he was easy to talk to. He was better to hook than the cold-faced godly male lead. It wasn’t strange for Gong Yi to change to an easier target.
“I have someone I like. Hehe.” The man smiled. “His words…… Apologies.”
“It’s fine,” Ziche DuanYuan said indifferently.
“You were insulted, so…… This Daoist friend is really broad-minded.” The man laughed.
Pei BuFan’s body shook. “Broad-minded” was the word least suited to describe the male lead!
The male lead was someone who took revenge for the slightest grievance! He let Gong Yi off right now must be because he was big-hearted. Bah! I mean, because he wanted to maintain his virtuous appearance in the Valley!
Wait for it. Gong Yi dared to discredit the male lead. He absolutely wouldn’t let him off.
Pei BuFan closed his tiny eyes. He didn’t care anymore.
“My name is Yuan Wangyou. I’m Elder Xunming’s eldest disciple. This Daoist friend is new, right? Who’s your Shifu?”
“Ziche DuanYuan: Valley Master’s fourth disciple,” Ziche DuanYuan replied.
“Oh, then you can call me shixiong. I’ll call you Ziche shidi.” Yuan Wangyou said, “Is Ziche shidi here to take part in the disciple ceremony? The ceremony is tomorrow, so Ziche shidi can take a stroll around today. Yes, this year’s new disciples have arrived. I was going to take a look…… Hehe. Why don’t we go together?”
Ziche DuanYuan thought about it and nodded.
If Yuan Wangyou was going to see them, then they should be Valley Master’s and the elders’ direct disciples.
They could be important contacts.
