Chapter 518 – Jade Emperor has sent a friend request
“Who can explain to me just why that woman was there?” Zuo Qingcheng knitted her eyebrows and looked at the people around her coldly after leaving the auction house.
“Didn’t you all say that she was in the Endless Beast Region? Why was she at the auction house when I came over just now!? Who can give me an explanation?”
Zuo Qingcheng smacked the peach wood table into smithereens, but everyone in the room continued to stay silent.
After a long time, a young man answered with a trembled, “Master told us that First Young Lady was in the Endless Beast Region. We didn’t say it!”
“Hmm?” Zuo Qingcheng squinted her eyes and looked at the young man before raising her eyebrows, “Why have I never seen you before?”
“I’ve only just joined Treasure Tower…” the young man lowered his head as he replied.
“Since you are new, then you already dare to argue?” Zuo Qingcheng’s expression darkened even more.
Then suddenly, the young man tore at the area around his throat as if an invisible hand was choking him.
Everyone else in the room all lowered their heads and did not dare to say anything. Not long later, the young man levitated off the ground.
He kicked out, while his eyeballs bulged.
A good five minutes later, the young man’s struggle gradually began to weaken until he finally stopped struggling and was dropped onto the ground.
“Deal with him,” Zuo Qingcheng looked indifferently at the lifeless young man. When two people dragged him out, she spoke up once again. “Go and contact someone to destroy Zuo Mo’s auction regardless of the cost. Understood!?”
“Understood!” the people in the room nodded.
Zuo Qingcheng snorted, then smiled in satisfaction before the foxy smile surfaced on her face once again as she left the room.
“Zichen-ge, this is the room my sister arranged for you.”
Zuo Liang led Ye Zichen to a room on the eighth floor of the auction house with a smile.
Ye Zichen couldn’t help but shake his head with a soft sigh after seeing the arrangement of the room.
There were plenty of expensive spiritual items within, and just stepping into it caused everyone to feel like their pores opened up.
“If you need anything, just press the bell by the window over here. There will be an attendant waiting outside to tend to your needs.”
“Okay,” Ye Zichen nodded with a smile. “Oh yeah, who was that woman just now?”
“Her? She’s our second uncle’s child,” Zuo Liang raised her eyebrows.
“It seems like Zuo Mo isn’t on particularly good terms with her?” Ye Zichen asked.
“It isn’t just now. They’re on extremely bad terms. They’ve always been like oil and water. What’s more, the Treasure Tower is planning to elect a new Tower Head. Both my sister and Zuo Qingcheng are good candidates, so their relationship naturally worsened.”
“You don’t seem so hostile towards Zuo Qingcheng?” Ye Zichen raised her eyebrows.
“I’m different from them. My father actually died before I was born, and Zuo Mo-jie’s father adopted me in good will. I have no ambitions to become the Tower Head, so I naturally wouldn’t act like them,” Zuo Mo chuckled. “I’m leaving now since I still need to warm the audience up when the auction begins. If you need anything, just ask the attendant outside.”
“Alright, then go and busy yourself. Don’t mind me,” Ye Zichen nodded.
After Zuo Mo walked out of the room, Ye Zichen sat down by the window, which allowed him to see how the auction was going.
Ye Zichen chose to take out his phone using the time before the auction.
He clicked on Red Packet Server, and saw that the deities in the group were having a flame war once again.
Erlang Shen: Do you know just how long laozi endured you for? You’re blabbering on and on in the group with your alt. Do you dare to use your main!?
God of Thunder: Yeah. I have to watch you blabber every single day. Why are you so annoying?
Canopy Marshal: Dude, the Jade Emperor isn’t here, so even if you kiss ass here, he won’t be able to see!
God of Fortune: What a retard.
Taibai Jinxing used to be the peacemaker in the Heavenly Court’s chat group, but ever since he left the Heavenly Court, the task was left to Pagoda-Bearing Heavenly King Li.
Since he saw that the deities in the group were about to fight, he couldn’t help but try to calm them down.
Pagoda-Bearing Heavenly King Li: Everyone, just take a step back and leave it.
Little Prince: Old Li, don’t mind me.
Little Prince: Yang Jian, Zhao Gaoming, Old Pig and Lei Zhenzi, you guys are seeking death. You actually dared to challenge Heavenly authority.
Erlang Shen: Don’t bullshit if you can fight. Use your main account if you dare. See if laozi beats the shit out of you.
It seems like they are arguing with Little Prince.
To be honest, Ye Zichen didn’t have any good impression of Little Prince. He had been speaking to the others like the big boss of the Heavenly Court from the get go. Since everyone in the group were real major deities, nobody could accept a suspicious person like him.
Little Prince: Hehe…
Erlang Shen: Oh wow, you dare to hehe? Grandson, you are truly sick of living aren’t you. Speaking anymore is pointless. Fight me!
Little Prince: Hehe…
Ye Zichen kicked Little Prince out of the group the moment the message was sent.
This brat has been destroying the serenity of the group from the very beginning. I can’t allow such actions to proceed further.
Erlang Shen: Grandson, stop going hehe with laozi. Fight me.
“Alright, I already kicked him out of the group,” Ye Zichen spoke up.
God of Thunder: Sky Sovereign is finally here. You should have kicked him out from the start. He’s been blabbering on and on and on these few days. He’s got a problem with us playing cards, with us chatting etc. So damn annoying!
God of Fortune: Yeah: He’s lucky that laozi doesn’t know who he is. If I know, then… Hmph…
God of Fortune’s meaning was obvious. If he knew who the kid was, he definitely would have dispersed all of the brat’s fortune.
Erlang Shen: Bro, you finally came. That brat was truly lucky, otherwise, I would have broken his leg.
Pagoda-Bearing Heavenly King Li: Alright, calm down. He’s already out of the group.
Erlang Shen: Hmmph, never mind. I don’t want to care about that brat. Oh yeah, bro, since I’m not on duty today, how about I come down to play with you?
Canopy Marshal: Take Old Pig with you.
God of Thunder: Are you guys going to find Sky Sovereign? He’s returned to the Heavenly Court?
Immortality Peach Fairy: I want to go as well.
Erlang Shen: Little girl, don’t go. Watch your Immortality Peach Garden properly. Did the Queen Mother not punish you for the monkey stealing peaches? You really are forgetful.
Erlang Shen: My bro isn’t in the Heavenly Court, he’s over in the Immortal Region. You want to come?
God of Thunder: Immortal Region? Then never mind. I’m on duty today.
God of Fortune: I actually want to go quite a bit, but I can’t leave. If Sky Sovereign comes to the Heavenly Court, then let’s find a time and get together.
Erlang Shen: So only Old Pig and I will go. @Only Idealism, bro you free or not?
While the people in the group chatted about descending to go and find him, Ye Zichen felt his brain explode as he stared at a friend request.
Jade Emperor sent a friend request.
Original Chapter Teaser:
Zuo Qingcheng: Damn it! Just damn it!
Attendant A: My lady…
Zuo Qingcheng: You! You! Why didn’t you tell me that she was returning!
Attendant A: I…
Zuo Qingcheng: And you, and you, and all of you! You useless imbeciles!
Attendants: We… We got the news from the Tower Head himself. He…
Zuo Qingcheng: And? It was obviously fake news! She should be in the Endless Beast Region, and now she’s here!? How could she have possibly returned so quickly!? You should have noticed this sooner!
Zuo Qingcheng: Shut up, you mongrels! Shut up and do something!
