Rebirth of a Useless Waste: Number One Evil Immortal Novel - Chapter 213
213. A Mindless Girl
Helian Hongzhan handed the white silk to the servant girl behind him and said to Rong Qing: Ye Lingluo had no blood relationship with Ye Peng, but her father was the adopted son of Ye Peng’s father. The passed city lord and his wife had deep love, and even though Mrs. Ye had been infertile for many years, he never thought about concubinage. He adopted a poor farmer’s son, namely Ye Cheng, Ye Lingluo’s father. After two years, Mrs. Ye was pregnant with Ye Peng. Later, Ye Peng succeeded as the lord and Ye Cheng was his assist. The latter had no talent for cultivation and died early. It was rumored that the two brothers had a bad relationship. Ye Cheng also said to be longing for the position of city lord but was suppressed and later killed by Ye Peng. Ye Lingluo was sent to Lingyun at an early age, and her relationship with her father was not close. She might not be clear about these things and perhaps regarded her ‘enemy’ as her greatest backing.
Rong Qing sneered, “Saying Ye Peng a backing to her is not wrong. No matter what Ye Peng really did to his brother, he should be kind to his brother’s daughter. Otherwise he would be suspected killing his brother and out of the reputation of mistreating his niece. Ye Peng valued his reputation so much, so long as Ye Lingluo doesn’t seek trouble, he won’t do anything to her.” When the two was communicating with sound transmission, Ye Lingluo had already sat between the city lord and his daughter.
During this period, all the competent in the sect went to the Secret Realm for experience, so the rest was a group of less capable disciples. Many of them curried favor with her but she only felt boring. So she came here to watch the fun when the Elixir Competition was being held. She would like to see if there were any young, handsome and outstanding alchemists besides Gao Qinglin.
Unfortunately, she was a bit late. When she arrived, the competition was nearly over. But she heard a lot along the way. It was said that a level-7 alchemist in his early twenties appeared at the competition!
At that time, she didn’t believe anything and even laughed at the speaker, thinking it was a myth. Maybe the man in legend was really a particularly outstanding alchemist, level 4, or at most level 5. The news came from Zhongzhou City and was changed many versions, so a level-7 alchemist was created! What an eye-catching news! But the fact was absolutely different!
However, the closer she get to Zhongzhou City, the more she heard such words, even more exaggerated than before! Such as the disciple of the heaven, a master of a hidden super sect, or even the reincarnation of elixir, all kinds of that. The man had an elder brother, who was a young middle-stage Nil Infant, even more talented than Lingyun’s Helian Hongzhan!
At the very least, it was certain that the man had succeeded in refining level-7 elixir, which was witnessed by the audience!
Ye Lingluo felt her heart would jump out of her chest. Every time she heard this man’s rumors, she became more excited, and then went to collect more.
Compared with alchemist, Ye Lingluo worshiped more the powerful cultivators who focused on practicing. But this time was different. Level-7 alchemist! This man was absolutely capable of making the best cultivators in the Small World ally with him! As long as she could stay with this person, all she came into contact with must be the real strong.
So she speeded up her journey and immediately came to the lord’s mansion as soon as she arrived in Zhongzhou City. The alchemist named Mu Yue and his elder brother Chi Jiang all lived in there.
At the first sight of Mu Yue, Ye Lingluo was disappointed. In her imagination, Mu Yue should be a handsome and talented alchemist, but his appearance was too ordinary. The man next to him should be his brother Chi Jiang, who was a handsome man with elegance, making her couldn’t take away her eyes from him. An handsome and talented Nil Infant cultivator, only such a talent was worthy of herself!
There was a trace of disgust in Ye Peng’s eyes when he saw Ye Lingluo’s eyes sticking to Chi Jiang. He was thinking about setting up his daughter and Mu Yue, but if the plan failed, he could consider Chi Jiang. But that bastard Ye Lingluo cast greedy eyes on Chi Jiang! He felt it would be troublesome.
“Lingluo, why don’t you give your uncle a message before coming here? I haven’t gotten time ordering to clean your room. How can I arrange you to the guest room! Well, our housekeeper will take you to the Qianyu Hotel so you can come back after your room is ready. We clean your room everyday, but the furniture is too old. To make new ones for you will take some time.”
Rong Qing couldn’t help but want to laugh hearing Ye Peng’s words. He covered his upward lips with his head down. Ye Peng was very good at lying. How could he say that without reddening his face? Even idiot knew that he didn’t want Ye Lingluo to live in his mansion. The rumors might be true. Maybe Ye Lingluo’s father was really killed by Ye Peng.
Ye Peng showed this attitude and seemed to have no scruples about Ye Lingluo.
However, to Rong Qing’s surprise, Ye Lingluo didn’t recognize the meaning of Ye Peng’s words, and she replied happily, “Uncle, don’t bother. I can share a room with sister Qingxin, and then move out when my room is ready. Qianyu Hotel charges high, I don’t want you to spend so much money just to host me.”
If her tone was dragged a little longer, there would be a feeling of deliberately disgusting Ye Peng. But from her voice, she seemed to be overjoyed and her present expression must be excited.
Rong Qing looked up and saw Ye Lingluo’s obsessive expression on her face, but she didn’t look at Ye Peng, but Helian Hongzhan.
Damn it! When the woman was in Lingyun, she seduced Helian Hongzhan in every possible way and spread rumors. Now in Zhongzhou City, Helian Hongzhan had changed a new look, and she was still drooling to him! Anyway, she was predestined to fall for Helian, right?
Rong Qing was angry and thought, he must teach the woman a good lesson! He had planned to teach Ye Peng a lesson, considering about Wisteria poison and other methods, but now he had a better plan.
In the afternoon, Rong Qing sat in the yard and chatted with Helian Hongzhan, revealing that today was Mu Yue’s birthday, and then ‘happened’ to be heard by a servant girl. The servant girl felt that something so important must be told to the lord, so Ye Peng knew Mu Yue’s birthday was today.
How could Ye Peng miss such a good chance to win over a friend and his possible son-in-law? He definitely needed to celebrate Mu Yue’s birthday. Ye Peng invited several friends, all of whom had close contacts with him, including Liaoque. He didn’t invite any of those who might win over Mu Yue with him, so he didn’t let these people know Mu Yue’s birthday.
That night, all the servants were busy, preparing for Mu Yue’s birthday, and arranging the dinner for all the people. The mansion was lively inside and out. People knew nothing about what’s going on was wondering what’s good news about the Ye family.
Ye Peng called Ye Qingxin to his study, closed the doors and windows, wearing a cautious face.
Ye Qingxin felt puzzled, “What did father call me here for?” She was thinking about a suitable birthday gift for Mu Yue. The sudden news didn’t leave her much time to prepare. She racked her brains but hadn’t had an idea.
“Tonight is Mu Yue’s birthday, you should already know?”
Ye Qingxin nodded with a redden face, “I know. I was thinking about what gift to give him but have no idea. I heard sister Lingluo is going to give Mu Yue a 300-year-old Fire Spiritual Grass, and she got it on the way over. But I remembered Mu Yue said that their sect is full of all kinds of rare spiritual plants and fruit, which should not be worse than the gift from Lingluo, so I still couldn’t make up my mind.”
Ye Peng nodded, “You’re right. Ye Lingluo is actually a waste only with a good appearance! She never uses her brains. Her gift definitely won’t impress Mu Yue. But I guess her goal is not Mu Yue but her brother Chi Jiang.”
Ye Lingluo tilted her head. “Master Chi is also excellent. He’s young and handsome with such a high cultivation. But I’ve already fallen in love with Mu Yue, otherwise, I must become a rival in love with sister Lingluo.”
“Silly girl!” Ye Peng patted on Ye Qingxin’s hand. “How can that bastard compare with you? If you really become rivals in love, then dad must help you get rid of the bastard first! Her father once plotted to be the city lord, and left us a restless little bitch. Dad also thinks Mu Yue is better. He can refine level-7 Essence-Condensing Elixir. If he can become my son-in-law, I can definitely get another elixir. With that thing, dad will surely catch up with Chi Jiang!”
Ye Qingxin’s face was hotter. “I also want to share dad’s worries, but Mu Yue doesn’t seem to be interested in me. I had thought Mu Yue did that intentionally to get my attention. I’ve hinted many times but he still didn’t respond. I always felt that he had prejudice against me, and I don’t know if it’s because of Dong Jue.”
Ye Peng shook his head. “In my opinion, Mu Yue was vengeful, but he doesn’t seem like a person who will easily vent his anger on people who’s not to blame. Maybe it’s just because Dong Jue loves you that he doesn’t feel very good, but tonight there is a chance for you two to get along!”
Ye Qingxin looked up at Ye Peng with obvious joy in her eyes. “What can I do?”
