HSSB118: Yan Zhaoge given the cold shoulder?
Looking first at Feng Yunsheng, then at Sikong Qing, Yan Zhaoge could not help but smile as he shook his head, “Since senior apprentice-aunt Fu has left seclusion, this is something that should still be expected.”
“Let’s go; we depart for the North Heaven Region at once,” Yan Zhaoge clapped his hands, then strode on ahead.
As though his earlier words had been prophetic, Zhao Ming also just happened to be preparing to depart for the Scarlet Rainbow Sect of the North Heaven Region, thus joining them on their way.
After having met their First Seat Elder in the North Heaven Region, Yan Zhaoge and the others bid Zhao Ming farewell before he set off for the territory of the Scarlet Rainbow Sect, with Yan Zhaoge’s group continuing on their way to the Cloud Pavilion Lake.
The Cloud Pavilion Lake was situated within the territory of a small kingdom located to the east of the North Heaven Region. While it did not occupy a huge area, it still made for a beautiful and unique scene.
Looking over from afar, from the rippling light on the lake’s surface, one could faintly see that in the air above the centre of the lake, there were white clouds gathered which remained forever undispersed.
Unique ripples of spiritual qi enveloped the entire Cloud Pavilion Lake, with the formation of a unique existence at its centre.
The water vapour within the air was condensed into clouds, yet there was no wind, no rain.
Here, it was spring all year round, even the surrounding temperature not seeing much change, such that those white clouds would never disperse, seemingly having erected a massive pavilion at the centre of the lake.
A structure which was eternally there, formed out of cloud qi.
Yan Zhaoge and the others all already being Martial Scholars, they directly walked on the water, heading towards the centre of the lake.
But before they had neared the pavilion formed of clouds, a screen of water suddenly rose up on the lake’s surface all around it, resembling a barrier.
Gazing over, Yan Zhaoge instantly rolled his eyes.
On the screens of water, words were actually visible.
‘Those of the Yan Family wait outside; the rest can enter.’
Seeing this, Ah Hu’s face instantly turned bitter, “Young Master…”
Feng Yunsheng and Sikong Qing stared at each other. However unclear they had been on the situation before, they knew for sure now that that rumoured Elder Fu really didn’t like the sight of Yan Zhaoge and his father.
Ah Hu rubbed his hands, secretly sending a sound transmission over to Yan Zhaoge, “Young Master, we have no way to force our way in there ah.”
While the screen of water before them appeared flimsy, if one were really to think that it was weak, then it would really be that there was a hole in their brain.
This was formed of the longtime Martial Grandmaster expert Fu Enshu using her fist intent to manipulate the water.
It was like how Shi Tie had previously used his fist intent to lock down the heavens and the earth, directly causing Yan Xu to neither be able to advance nor retreat.
To those whose level of cultivation was similar to or superior to Fu Enshu, this screen of water naturally wouldn’t count as much, but to Yan Zhaoge and Ah Hu, this flimsy-looking thing was something that was even more tough and indestructible than walls of copper and ceilings of iron.
Seeing the screen of water before them, Yan Zhaoge could not help but laugh as he shook his head, “It’s fine.”
Turning to look at Feng Yunsheng and Sikong Qing, he said smilingly, “Senior apprentice-aunt Fu’s orders; the two of you should enter first.”
Gazing over, the two saw Yan Zhaoge with a calm and unruffled look on his face.
After such a long time had passed, they more or less knew that Yan Zhaoge was really a person who caused others to suffer a loss and did not suffer them himself; this was so even faced with those of the clan’s senior generation.
Looking at them, Yan Zhaoge smiled lightly, “After you enter, I will naturally be able to enter as well.”
The corners of Feng Yunsheng’s mouth twitched, as she looked like she was smiling while also not. Secretly shooting Yan Zhaoge a thumbs up, she no longer hesitated, immediately walking towards that screen of water.
Glancing silently at Yan Zhaoge for a moment, Sikong Qing nodded slightly, before turning and heading towards that water barrier as well.
As they arrived, a gap naturally formed in that screen of water, letting them both in.
“Young Master, how does one say it again?” Watching them enter, Ah Hu sent over a sound transmission in a slightly pained voice, “It is better to offend a gentleman than a scoundrel; it is better to offend a scoundrel than a woman?”
“Who offended her? She’s just narrow-minded,” Yan Zhaoge curled his lips, “Just relax your mind and wait for a moment and it’ll be fine.”
“Very soon, she will ask us in on her own accord.”
Ah Hu was silently left speechless. His Young Master had always been domineering to the extreme; this he knew full well. However, the other party now could not be viewed like any ordinary person.
In terms of rank, Fu Enshu was on the same level as Fang Zhun and Shi Tie; even if her strength as well as position were slightly inferior, it was still not something that disciples of the younger generation could stand up to.
…Especially when, this woman was not at all quite a reasonable person.
If she really wanted teach a disciple of the younger generation a lesson, pushing him to the point of being half-dead, there would also be nowhere for him to seek justice to.
This was the real one of Yan Di and Shi Tie’s generation of Broad Creed Mountain young disciples who was their greatest chaos-inducing demon lord in the past.
Of the Chief of Broad Creed Mountain Yuan Zhengfeng’s personal disciples, Yan Di was the youngest and also the one who entered the clan the latest, when most of the others had already been apprenticed.
When Yan Di had entered, amongst all his young senior apprentice-brothers and sisters, the one Yuan Zhengfeng had trusted the most in was Shi Tie and the one whom he had appreciated the most for his talent was Fang Zhun, but the one who could make him the happiest was actually Fu Enshu.
Fu Enshu’s parents were not just from the same clan as Yuan Zhengfeng; they were also close buddies with whom he had gone through some life-and-death situations before. Sadly, they had both died early. Fu Enshu had then virtually been raised by Yuan Zhengfeng, the two sharing a relationship as close as a true father and daughter pair.
On some level, Yuan Zhengfeng had just doted too much on Fu Enshu since young.
Yan Zhaoge thought from the bottom of his heart that there were really many people who had to thank Shi Tie.
If not for this strict, serious senior apprentice-brother pressing down on them from above, many times not even giving face for Yuan Zhengfeng, Fu Enshu, this tyrant of Broad Creed Mountain would have done a lot more damage than she had.
Looking at Yan Zhaoge, Ah Hu smacked his lips, “Young Master, even faced with Elder Fang, you are still so confident. For that, I would be even more confident than you; after all, Elder Fang is a very reasonable person.”
“However, if it is Elder Fu, she does things most of the time based on her mood.”
Yan Zhaoge shrugged, putting up three fingers.
“Firstly, while senior apprentice-aunt Fu does as she likes more than others, being wild and unbridled in her actions, making decisions based off her own personal likes and dislikes, at the end of the day, she still passionately loves our clan.”
“Having been born there, raised there, with Grand Master looking upon her as a daughter, doting on her, how would she not love and respect Grand Master as a father?”
Yan Zhaoge said as he kept back a finger, “Faced with significant matters which would truly be beneficial to Broad Creed Mountain, she can suppress her own feelings, thinking for the clan’s sake.”
“Secondly, saying such things about the senior generation behind their backs is not very nice, but this senior apprentice-aunt Fu is impatient towards most things. Even if she gets interested in them, it’s also generally ‘three days going fishing, two days letting the net dry’.”
Yan Zhaoge kept back another finger, “However, senior apprentice-aunt Fu is extremely passionate towards martial cultivation, many years feeling like a single day for her. Don’t be fooled by that chaos-inducing demon lord personality of hers in her youth; her diligence in cultivation is something that even eldest apprentice-uncle praises.”
“Towards yet known secrets of the martial dao, senior apprentice-aunt Fu has an extremely strong desire to get to the bottom of them. When there are some things that she cannot understand, she will find it hard to eat and tough to sleep, just having to comprehend the profundities within before being willing to let it go.”
Saying thus, Yan Zhaoge also praised, “If she were not a crazy devil…being able to reach her current cultivation realm, senior apprentice-aunt Fu naturally didn’t do so by luck.”
“Senior apprentice-aunt Fu loves her face and likes holding grudges, but compared to her face, the difficult problems in the martial dao that she cannot crack gets to her even more.”
Saying thus, Yan Zhaoge smiled, keeping his final finger, “The third ah, hehe; of the entire Broad Creed Mountain, senior apprentice-aunt Fu has one of the most impatient personalities, not being able to hold patient easily…”
Before his words had fully sounded, the water barrier before them, silently and noiselessly, suddenly opened.
