Chapter 78: Lighting a Fire
The bewitching man’s question was obviously difficult for these young handsome men, who have been imprisoned for many years, to answer. At a loss, they shook their heads. What can they still do with their remaining lifespan?
“We can go home…”
All their anxieties were in these four heavy words.
Yes, go home, even if it’s just to catch a glimpse of their family, who they haven’t seen for a long time, from afar, before quietly leaving to die alone.
Their cultivation levels weren’t low. Their hearts have already been tempered by their cultivation. Once they’ve decided, they would resolutely leave.
Only the beautiful teenager, who was staring at Chu Ye with a pair of big clear eyes, pleaded, “Sister, can I go with you? With my current strength, I wouldn’t be able to get out of the pagoda’s second floor on my own.”
At that moment, Chu Ye seemed to see Chenzhu in him. The teenager’s clear eyes resembled those of Chenzhu’s!
This pure boy is too pitiful.
Even after going through so much, he still had such a pure pair of eyes.
“Ok!” Chu Ye immediately agreed.
She had no reason to refuse, especially when faced with such a pair of eyes.
It wasn’t his fault that he became one of Lady Zanhua’s male pets.
No one should discriminate against him.
Next to her, the bewitching man frowned and licked his thin lips. “Then let’s go!”
He didn’t want to stay in this place any longer. Thinking about how he almost became a male pet a few days ago, he urgently wanted to leave.
This was definitely the biggest stain in his life.
Therefore, once the teenager, the very last one, walked out of the underground palace, the bewitching man conjured intense flames with a wave of his hand, which completely engulfed the underground palace.
Several minutes later, the originally grand underground palace turned into ruins. The towering tree that served as the entrance to the palace was also burned to ashes.
Chu Ye’s eyebrows raised at his actions. However, she fully understood the man’s current psychological state, and simply glanced at his stone-cold face. Without saying a word, she simply saddled Xiao Yin, who had already transformed into his original size, walking to the forefront.
“Hey woman, I used too much magic power. I can’t walk properly anymore, so let me sit with you.” The bewitching man momentarily regained his roguish character. As soon as he finished speaking, he lept up, wanting to cling onto Chu Ye from the top of the tiger’s back.
“Scram!” Chu Ye unceremoniously shot out her foot.
He’d been eating quite a lot of her tofu for the past few days, and now they’ve escaped, he still thinks he can do so. Really asking for a kick!
“Ah!” The man’s unprotected bottom was ruthlessly kicked. With a scream, he spun and fell to the ground. He exclaimed, “Woman! As a woman, how can you be so rude?”
“Nothing to be done about it. When you give some people a few dyes, they’ll open a dye store; give them a bamboo pole, they’ll try to climb to the heavens. They’re in need of a spanking!” Chu Ye retorted.
“Hahaha!” The teenager who had been obediently following them, couldn’t stifle his laughter.
“What are you laughing at?” The bewitching man fiercely glared.
He promptly wiped the smile off his face and timidly leaned on Chu Ye.
From the very beginning, he had sensed that this person disliked his joining them.
“You don’t need to be afraid of him.” Chu Ye noticed that the boy was a little scared of the bewitching man. “What’s your name?”
“Sister can call me Xiao Dong.” Xiao Dong grinned, exposing the two little tiger teeth (or canine teeth) at the upper corners of his mouth. Adorable.
“Hahaha. Xiao Dong (little hole)?” This time, it was the bewitching man’s turn to laugh. “Why not call yourself **?” (T/N: Two different characters, but has the same pronunciation. The actual Dong in his name means movement. Though I personally don’t think it’s any less lewd XD)
“It’s Xiao Dong, as in earth-shaking movements.” Xiao Dong explained loudly, neck flushing from the vulgarity of the man’s words.
The man let out an “oh” in sudden realization. “It turned out to be animalistic movements. This name is truly unique.”
Xiao Dong’s forehead was filled with black lines.
Too lazy to argue with him, he instead looked up at Chu Ye, and asked, “Sister, what’s your name?”
The bewitching man immediately extended his neck, prepared to listen carefully, He’d been with her for quite a while now, yet he still didn’t know her name.
“Chu Ye!” Chu Ye magnanimously stated her name.
“Chu Ye? Haha, your name is also quite unique.” The man didn’t forget to say a few words of criticism.
Shortly after, he received sharp looks from Chu Ye and Xiao Dong.
“Shut up, you damned bewitcher.” They even spoke the same words in unison.
Xiao Dong has sharp senses. With Chu Ye’s presence, he doesn’t need to afraid of speaking badly of the man, even if it’s right in front of his face. His eyes seemed to penetrate into the bewitching man’s soul and completely see right through him.
“No, no, Bewitcher isn’t my name. If you don’t mind, you can call me Brother Xie (means evil; demonic).” The enchanting man looked pleased with himself. It seems that he really wanted to carry out the “evil” to the end.
Chu Ye and Xiao Dong rolled their eyes and naturally retaliated.
With the divine beast Xiao Yin’s presence, although it is currently only an empty shell, its mighty presence hasn’t been reduced. So throughout their entire journey, all the magical beasts they encountered were scared off. There wasn’t any need to fight.
Therefore, during the entire journey, the three relaxedly had a verbal battle, contrary to what one would expect. They only needed to use a tiny bit of spiritual energy to monitor the ground so as to not step into a swamp.
