Chapter 441 – Gathering Allies
Pagoda-Bearing Heavenly King Li, who was sitting and chatting within his palace, was stunned. From the sounds of Erlang Shen and the Monkey King’s words, it seems like he was the only one who didn’t take a side yet.
To be truthful, everything he said was just courteous words. Although he was an important general in the Heavenly Court and controlled an army, he was still the Jade Emperor’s subordinate.
The Jade Emperor had already forbid the deities in the Heavenly Court from even talking with Taibai Jinxing, so him entering the group was already giving Taibai Jinxing a lot of face.
However, the words of Yang Jian and the shitty monkey clearly checkmated him, causing him to be unsure of what to do.
Monkey King: @Pagoda-Bearing King Li, Geezer Li, where did you off to?
Immortality Peach Fairy: Let me ask stealthily. What is eradicating demons?
God of Thunder: Little fairy, don’t ask so much about what you shouldn’t ask. But then again, the Jade Emperor…
Erlang Shen: I nearly forgot. @God of Thunder, you have plenty of soldiers underneath your command, right?
God of Thunder: Ahem…
Taibai Jinxing: Hehe, this old man doesn’t wish to trouble everyone. If you feel like it will be hard on you, then pretend like this old man didn’t say anything.
Pagoda-Bearing Heavenly King Li: Taibai, you’re treating us like outsiders with your words.
God of Thunder: Yeah. To be honest, we do possess military forces, and since we’ve been comrades in the Heavenly Court for so many years, we do sincerely want to help you… But in the end, we’re under the Jade Emperor’s rule.
Pagoda-Bearing Heavenly King Li: He said exactly what I wanted to say.
Erlang Shen: Basically, you’re just pussies. Look, why didn’t the monkey or I think so much?
Mother of Lightning: You’re retarded, that’s something everyone in the Heavenly Court knows.
Erlang Shen: Hey, little biatch, I was just saying, why did you insult me?
Mother of Lightning: Little biatch?
Erlang Shen: That’s a way of addressing beauties.
Mother of Lightning: Oh, then I am a little biatch!
What Ye Zichen did not know that was Yang Jian’s words instantly called the phrase “little biatch” to become a new trend in the Heavenly Court. Whenever someone meets a rather pretty beauty, they would call her little biatch…
However, that’s irrelevant. Also, while these people were trying to gather allies in the group, Ye Zichen was not staying idle in private.
He went into his chat with Third Prince Nezha, but when he saw the moe shota profile picture, all of a sudden, Ye Zichen felt rather reluctant.
I would feel really bad for trying to fudge with the little guy.
However, he quickly discarded his tiny bit of conscience. Just what is my conscience worth compared to my life, the Modern Realm and the Three Realms?
“Ahem, Third Prince, what are you doing?”
Nezha, who was playing ball with Immortality Peach Fairy in the Immortality Peach Garden, immediately put down the ball and smiled towards Immortality Peach Fairy, “Immortality Peach-jiejie, wait for me for a moment. Sky Sovereign sent me a message.”
“Mhmm, hurry up and talk to Sky Sovereign. Big Sis is going to watch from the side,” Immortality Peach Fairy answered with a giggle.
Third Prince Nezha nodded heavily, then tapped his reply on the screen. “Sky Sovereign, I’m kicking a ball with Immortality Peach-jiejie. What did you find me for?’
Immortality Peach Fairy is there too?
Ye ZIchen squinted his eyes, but he quickly put the thought of her being there aside. This girl’s mindset is around that of a seventeen or eighteen year old. If it really ends up being an issue, I’ll just fudge with her as well.
“Third Prince is actually playing ball with Immortality Peach-meimei, so fun!”
“Wow, Sky Sovereign called me meimei,” Immortality Peach-meimei giggled and cheered.
Third Prince Nezha also nodded and typed out his reply with a smile. “Mhmm…”
“How can you reply so simply?” Immortality Peach Fairy smacked the Third Prince’s head and snatched over the phone.
“Sky Sovereign, do you want to accept Immortality Peach Fairy as your little sister? That’s a smart, intelligence, lively, cute, bright, generous and kind girl!”
The moment Ye Zichen saw this message, he guessed that Immortality Peach fairy was the person who sent it. He sighed speechlessly, then replied.
“Immortality Peach Fairy, it’s you, right?”
“Hehe, why can’t I deceive Sky Sovereign?” Immortality Peach Fairy giggled.
Ye Zichen replied once again. “Actually, I did wish to accept you as my stepsister, do you…”
“Is that really okay? If Sky Sovereign doesn’t mind, then I’m way too willing!” Immortality Peach Fairy replied without thinking. Being Sky Sovereign Nameless’ little sister is great.
I’ll gain a huge backing with such an older brother. What’s more, she has always been very curious about this mysterious Sky Sovereign as well.
“That’s great,” Ye Zichen smiled, then replied on the screen again. “Hand the phone back over to the Third Prince. I have some things I want to discuss with him.”
“Okay,” Immortality Peach Fairy giggled in response, then handed the phone over to Third Prince Nezha and placed her hands on her waist. “Chat properly with Sky Sovereign, Nezha.”
Third Prince Nezha nodded heavily, then typed out a message on the screen.
“Sky Sovereign, do you have some business with me?”
Ye Zichen thought silently to himself, then messaged Nezha.
“I heard that Third Prince has control over the Heavenly Court’s soldiers?”
“Yeah, even though I’m short, I lead even more soldiers than my dad,” Third Prince Nezha put on a proud smile. Actually, he wrote the message for Immortality Peach Fairy, who was beside him. No matter how old he is, he’s still a guy… They all like to display their strong sides to the girls they like.
However, those words were not so simple in Ye Zichen’s mind. More soldiers than Pagoda-Bearing Heavenly King Li. That’s definitely huge control over the military.
I really lack power right now, if I can trick the Third Prince… Ahem, correction, persuade him to become my comrade, then he’ll definitely be a force to be reckoned with.
“Does Third Prince like being a hero of justice?”
“Of course,” Third Prince answered without thinking. “My dad taught me to be an ally of justice and a hero since a young age… But the Heavenly Court is too peaceful, there is no way for me to become a hero.”
“I have a way of becoming a hero of justice. Do you want to give it a try?” Ye Zichen smiled like the fake grandma – big bad wolf.
“Yeah, Sky Sovereign, tell me what I should do!”
The Third Prince answered urgently. He likes Immortality Peach Fairy very much, but he can feel like she keeps on treating him like a kid.
That’s why, he needed a way to prove himself, and show her how amazing he is.
“Slay demons and defend justice!” Ye Zichen squinted his eyes.
Third Prince Nezha scratched his face when he saw the message. I seem to remember my dad telling me not to get involved in this matter…
“Sky Sovereign, my dad isn’t letting me!”
“Then you don’t want to be a hero anymore?”
“I do, but what if I don’t listen and my dad hits me?” Third Prince Nezha said slightly helplessly.
Seeing that, Ye Zichen squinted his eyes. No worries, I still have a backup plan…
“Give your phone to Immortality Peach Fairy.”
Nezha handed the phone obediently to Immortality Peach Fairy.
After getting the phone, Immortality Peach Fairy immediately replied on the screen. “Sky Sovereign-gege, I read all your messages just now. What do you want me to do?”
“Convince Third Prince Nezha. Will you have any issues doing that?”
Immortality Peach Fairy answered with certainty. She did have a way with the Third Prince.
