Chapter 18: A date.
Beneath the moonlight, after images were seen as the sound of metal colliding resounded.
But the moment when Anaconda attacked Ye Xuan with his daggers and showed his killing intent, Ye Xuan took out his military knife and blocked the attack. His whole body took the strong impact for the strike but his body didn’t even move an inch.
“Your strength is not bad…”
Ye Xuan said calmly after blocking Anaconda’s attack. His face didn’t fluctuate at all and was still as calm as before.
“Damn it! This guy actually blocked my killing move, Killing Tiger?!”
Compared to Ye Xuan’s calm demeanor, Anaconda’s mind was filled with shock as he never thought that he would be able to block his attack.
He didn’t hold back at all when he made his move as he used his ultimate move, the Killing Tiger, but Ye Xuan easily blocked it and didn’t even budge.
“Brat, I admit that you have some skills since you were able to kill Wolf Devil. But it’s still too soon for you to face against me! You’ll need to go back to your mother’s womb and train for ten more years!”
Anaconda angrily said as he stared at Ye Xuan with his arrogant eyes.
“Wings Spreading Crane!” (TLN: it sounds a bit better in chinese but it’s still a lame ass name.)
As he finished his sentence, his feet soared with a powerful counteracting force and his right leg kicked toward Ye Xuan’s chest with a powerful strength.
Ye Xuan’s face was still emotionless as his right clenched into a fist and punched out.
After the muffled sound of a strike was heard, Anaconda could only feel his feet go numb before a powerful force sent him off like cannonball. He needed to take multiple steps backward before he could stabilize himself.
He could feel his legs numbing as he looked up to see Ye Xuan’s calm face. His expression turned serious as he knew was facing against a tough opponent.
This brat wasn’t as simple as he looked.
“Brat, if cripple your arms and beg mercy, I’ll leave your corpse intact. If not…”
Before Anaconda could finish his sentence, Ye Xuan interrupted him and said wrily, “Stop talking shit, I’m in a hurry!”
Anaconda yelled out angrily as his heart was burning with rage. His legs exploded forward like a dragon sailing through the sea, his speed soared as he headed straight toward Ye Xuan with his knife ready to strike.
However right at this moment, Ye Xuan’s eyes flashed with killing intent as he threw his knife at him.
A silver light flashed through the air and the sound of flesh being stabbed resounded. Anaconda, who was charging toward toward Ye Xuan, stopped on his track and froze, because he had a knife embedded between his brows.
Anaconda’s body started to tremble violently as bright red blood spurted out of his mouth.
He tried to say something as he struggled to point his finger at Ye Xuan but eventually he fell and died.
“Oh… crap, he’s dead.”
Ye Xuan face palmed in exasperation when he realized he killed him.
He completely forgot to leave him alive and question him about Wolf Devil’s attack on Leng Qingcheng as well as the mastermind behind the attack.
He lost a lead when Wolf Devil died.
Finally his brother, Anaconda, came but Ye Xuan accidentally killed him.
He retrieved his army knife and crouched down to carefully search Anaconda’s body. Ye Xuan only found some concealed weapon and a cell phone.
There was a peculiar number on the cell phone’s call history and this number called Anaconda multiple times before he came to kill Ye Xuan.
After pondering for a moment, Ye Xuan picked the phone and called the number but to his disappointment, he heard that the number didn’t exist.
The other party skill and reaction speed greatly surprised him. Only an idiot would believe that Anaconda only came to avenge his brother and that there were no other parties involved.
Unfortunately, Ye Xuan accidentally killed the guy.
Ye Xuan couldn’t be blamed for his death. It was just that Anaconda was too weak. After all, Ye Xuan thought that he was strong enough to avoid the knife.
He thought the opponent would at least have the strength of a king but he turned to be a little bronze, causing Ye Xuan to feel helpless about the situation. (TLN: Maybe a League reference but i’m not sure.)
Ye Xuan took out liquids he bought at the black market and poured it on Anaconda’s body before he turned away to leave. Anaconda’s body slowly melted and eventually evaporated into the air without leaving any trace.
Inside the antique room in the mysterious antique shop in Xing Hai. (Black market store)
Ye Xuan sat languidly on the sofa as he looked at the pretty manager across him.
The last time he was in such a hurry that he didn’t pay much attention to the pretty manager, but now he realized that she was a high level beauty. She had a flawless face while rocking a ponytail and wore a white uniform shirt with a black skirt. Her smooth white legs, wrapped in black stocking, were even longer than the professional model’s ones. It could be said that her beauty could make any man addicted to her.
“Esteemed guest, this little girl, Ye Qianwei, is the manager of this branch. I wonder what can I do for you?
The pretty manager asked with a charming smile on her face.
Her attitude toward Ye Xuan was more respectful and welcoming than the last time he came.
“Help me find the owner of this phone numbers.”
Ye Xuan said casually as his face was as impassive as ever.
This black market store manager change of attitude toward him was probably because of the poetry line he wrote.
Ye Xuan didn’t feel anything was amiss at first, and wasn’t until Ye Qianwei changed attitude toward him, that he realized that the line he wrote had probably caught the attention of her superiors. If it wasn’t the case, this Ye Qianwei wouldn’t have such drastic change of attitude toward him.
However, this wasn’t a bad thing for Ye Xuan and he didn’t need to be vigilant about it.
After all, his relationship with Elena, the founder of the Night Temple and owner of this black market store, was quite good.
“OK! Esteemed guest, do you have any other instruction?” Ye Qianwei asked again.
Ye Xuan thought for a moment and said.
“I want several hundred detox pills.”
“Okay, please wait for a moment, I’ll get it for you right away!”
Ye Qianwei bowed gently and brought back a delicate jade bottle before handing it to Ye Xuan.
Ye Xuan didn’t put on air and accepted it without courtesy.
“This is my cell phone number. Call me if you have any news.”
Ye Xuan left his phone number before standing up to stretch his body a bit and walked out of the room.
The pretty manager respectfully sent him off as she watched Ye Xuan leave.
After Ye Xuan left, she sent a report of what happened here to her superiors.
Soon, Ye Qianwei received a response from her superiors. “You did a good job, try your best to befriend him and no matter what he ask, do everything you can to help him.”
Ye Qianwei couldn’t help but fall into silence when she saw the reply. She wondered why her superior cared so much about this man.
Although she didn’t go to investigate Ye Xuan identity, she still had some knowledge about his background.
This guy’s name was Ye Xuan and was once a wealthy young master of Xing Hai but he was kicked out of the Ye Family and had lost everything.
She didn’t understand why her superior would issue such an order to her.
Looking at the time, the suspicious Ye Qianwei prepared to close down the shop.
This wasn’t something she should be worried about.
Moreover, she still had to attend an important banquet tomorrow.
It was already midnight when Ye Xuan left Xing Hai black market store and returned to the apartment.
Su Xiaomeng and Leng Qingcheng were still awake. Su Xiaomeng was sitting on the sofa playing on her console, while Leng Qingcheng was immersed in reading her medical book.
“Phew! Ye Xuan, you’re finally back. You worried me to death!”
Su Xiaomeng let out a long sigh of relief and said with a smile when she saw Ye Xuan came home.
Although she didn’t like Ye Xuan, his previous performance impressed her greatly.
“You worried about me? Are you kidding me? It’s good enough that you didn’t curse me.” Ye said jokingly.
Afterward, Ye Xuan gaze fell onto Leng Qingcheng, who wore a beautiful nightgown and was reading her book seriously, and teased her.
“Qingcheng, it’s so late, were you waiting for me?”
“I was bored.”
Leng Qingcheng gave a cold glance at Ye Xuan before she stood up and walked back to her bedroom with her book in hands.
She was actually felt concern for Ye Xuan, otherwise she wouldn’t have waited for him to come back before going to bed.
As if she thought of something, Su Xiaomeng asked him.
“Oh yeah, Ye Xuan… did you find anything when you went out to investigate?”
After hearing Su Xiaomeng’s words, Leng Qingcheng drastically slowed her pace toward her bedroom.
“The bomb was sent by Wolf Devil’s brother, Anaconda. He was probably trying to avenge his brother. But you don’t have to worry anymore. I took care of that guy.”
Ye Xuan said casually and yawned.
“It’s getting late, let’s sleep early.”
Leng Qingcheng expression turned sour as a cold flickered in her eyes. She didn’t expect Wolf Devil to have brother but she didn’t say anything and walked into her bedroom before the door behind her.
Ye Xuan and Su Xiaomeng yawned while stretching in fatigue before the both them returned to their respective bedroom.
The next morning before dawn, Ye Xuan woke up and started to exercise and practice to strengthen his body.
It was 8:30 a.m., when Ye Xuan returned to Wang Jiang residence after finishing his exercise and having breakfast. Su Xiaomeng and Leng Qingcheng just woke up and were having a shower.
“Here! I put the breakfast I bought on the table!”
Ye Xuan left the breakfast he brought on the table and went to watch TV.
“Ye Xuan, what time do you get up every day? Why did you go out so early?”
Su Xiaomeng, who wore a pink pajama and sitting on the table, asked Ye Xuan as she ate the dumpling he brought back.
When Su Xiaomeng, Leng Qingcheng couldn’t help to turn her head toward Ye Xuan to look at him as she was also curious on why he woke up so early to leave.
“What else can I do? Of course it’s to get up and exercise. Have you not heard of the saying that life is all about exercise?”
Ye Xuan said as he sat comfortably on the sofa while pointing down at the river.
“Tsk, you’re boasting. I don’t believe that you’re going out to exercise.” Su Xiaomeng joked as she pouted.
While Su Xiaomeng and Ye Xuan were talking, Leng Qingcheng had already finished grooming herself.
Her long and straight her was draped behind her, while her perfectly shaped body was wrapped in a pure white V-neck dress and her collar was hollowed out with a black lace. She was filled with a mesmerizing sense of beauty, coupled with a pair of high heeled shoes with a silver inlaid diamond. All added together gave her the presence of a queen and made Ye Xuan eyes lit up.
She was elegant, simple and sexy. Along with her cold and arrogant demeanor, she was very eye catching, like a queen standing above the masses.
Since when this woman figure was so hot?
Ye Xuan’s heart was deeply moved when he saw Leng Qingcheng.
As Ye Xuan was admiring Leng Qingcheng hot figure, she turned around said, “Xiaomeng, today I’m busy, I won’t be coming home for lunch or dinner.”
Leng Qingcheng took her bag and left after informing Su Xiaomeng.
“Hey, Xiaomeng, where is your sister going while dressing so beautifully.”
Ye Xuan asked with a frown.
“Of course it’s a date!” Su Xiaomeng said while playing her console.
“A date? With who?” Ye Xuan felt suddenly upset as he learned that his wife went out to have a date with someone else.
“A super-rich second-generation from a rich family! I’m not talking about you. From your current work and circumstances, you and my sister won’t be able to go on long enough, so you better know yourself and don’t delay my sister.” Su Xiaomeng replied as she thought about it.
Ye Xuan faintly smiled and didn’t say anything else.
Ye Xuan stood up and was about to go back to his room to sleep but his phone vibrated at this moment.
It was from an unknown number. Ye Xuan quickly pressed the answer button and said, “Hello, this is Ye Xuan.”
“Ye Xuan, it is really you? I’m Lan Wanting, I’ve been looking for you cell phone number for a while. By the way, do you have time today?” A pleasant voice came across the phone.
“I have plenty of time! Why are you looking for me?” Ye Xuan asked puzzled.
“It’s like this. Today, I have a banquet and I would like you to accompany me to it, can you?”
“Of course, what’s the time and place?”
“The Ocean Wave Hotel. We’ll meet at the entrance at eleven a.m.!”
“Sure, no problem!”
Ye Xuan hung up the phone and cleaned himself before changing into a new set of clothes and walked out of his bedroom while humming a song.
“Ye Xuan, where are you going?”
Su Xiaomeng couldn’t but ask when she saw him.
He replied without turning back.
