Chapter 1933: Xing'er and Lan'er
"You-" Jian Chen stared at fairy Hao Yue furiously. Just when he wanted to say something, he seemed to think of something else, and his anger deflated like a balloon. He said, "Whatever. You've saved me twice before after all. I won't dwell on the matter this time with you." Jian Chen was helpless. He could only resign himself to the matter this time. After all, fairy Hao Yue had become an existence powerful enough for him to look up to after recovering her body.
"But you need to explain to the two princesses clearly that this has nothing to do with me, and you're behind it all," Jian Chen added.
Fairy Hao Yue looked at Jian Chen as if she was forcing back her smile. She asked in fake surprise, "What was I behind? Jian Chen, do you have any evidence at all? Princesses, did you see me throw this person in there?"
Fairy Hao Yue's question immediately left the two princesses slightly bewildered. They felt wronged, and it seemed like they were about to burst into tears. They had no idea how to answer this question.
The person before them was an existence equivalent to their ancestor. Her status was so great that even they, the princesses of the empire, struggled to remain composed.
Even the emperor would find it very difficult to see his ancestor, a Primordial realm expert normally, let alone them.
If it were not for the fact that the ancestor had come out of the forbidden grounds to see the sister she had not seen for many years, she probably would not even show her face for several tens of thousand years.
They were paramount existences in the Xuandao Empire, just like gods. The two princesses felt indescribably nervous before people like them.
The two princesses could not help but secretly glance at Jian Chen. Evident fury still burned in their eyes.
However, what stunned them was how Jian Chen behaved completely differently from them.
Facing the two Primordial realm experts, Jian Chen showed no respect at all. He stood there in a composed manner as resentment filled his face along with some anger. He stared viciously at the senior that even their ancestor had to treat politely.
The two princesses could not help but become curious along with their resentment when they saw how composed Jian Chen was.
However, humiliation soon drowned out their curiosity. They gritted their teeth as hatred filled their eyes.
"Sister Hao Yue, stop toying around with the juniors. Look at how much you've scared them," Tian Shuang rubbed her temples as she felt very speechless. She could not see the point in fairy Hao Yue's actions at all.
They were both Primordial realm experts, so the weak juniors before their eyes were like ants. How would they be bored enough to toy around with them?
Moreover, Hao Yue had always appeared to be cold and proud in her eyes. Suddenly, she had become so mischievous, actually playing around with juniors out of boredom. Tian Shuang really found this difficult to adapt to.
"Xing'er, Lan'er, you are dismissed," the emperor said with a dignified voice.
The two princesses bowed towards the emperor, Tian Shuang, and Hao Yue. Tears of being wronged flickered in their eyes as they glared at Jian Chen viciously. They departed in very low spirits as they pouted their lips.
They had guessed that Jian Chen probably had some connections with the senior that even their ancestor received politely. With such a powerful person supporting him, it was impossible for them to make up for any grievances they had suffered. Even their father would not be able to help.
Fairy Hao Yue could not help but smile when she saw Xing'er and Lan'er leave as if they had been wronged. She said, "Don't act like you've just suffered a lot, you little girls. If the two of you can become his wives, the Xuandao Empire will definitely rise up in the future. All the generations, both past and future, will benefit from it. I'm only giving you a good start. Whether you can grasp this once-in-lifetime opportunity or not will be up to your choices."
"Fairy Hao Yue, what're you blabbering on about?" Jian Chen stared at fairy Hao Yue with a pale face. He had no idea what fairy Hao Yue was trying to pull.
"Jian Chen, I'm not just toying with you. These two girls aren't as simple as they seem," fairy Hao Yue's voice rang out in Jian Chen's head.
Lan'er and Xing'er immediately felt their faces heat up slightly when they heard fairy Hao Yue's words, even after they had walked quite far away. They had almost become furious from the embarrassment.
If someone else had said that, they would definitely chase them down regardless of the consequences and cut out their tongue.
However, they did not dare to try something like with fairy Hao Yue. As a result, they could only act like they did not hear it, quickly leaving the place.
However, the emperor and Tian Shuang, who believed she understood fairy Hao Yue better, stared at Jian Chen in shock once they heard that.
The two of them refused to believe that fairy Hao Yue would spout lies. Clearly, the puny Overgod before them was far more complicated than he seemed since she had said something like that.
"Sister Hao Yue, may I ask who this little brother is?" Tian Shuang stared at Jian Chen uneasily as she became serious for the first time.
This was the first time she had stared at a mere Overgod so seriously ever since she had reached the Primordial realm.
"He's Jian Chen," said fairy Hao Yue.
"Jian Chen?" A sliver of doubt appeared on the faces of Tian Shuang and the emperor. They found the name to be extremely unfamiliar.
They had not heard of any ancient, powerful organisations that used a surname like that.
However, Man Ye's eyes lit up. He stared at Jian Chen closely and said, "Are you that Jian Chen from the southern region?"
People as great as the emperor and Tian Shuang naturally would not know of Jian Chen's name, but Man Ye was extremely familiar with it.
This was because he had once experienced envy towards the owner of the name. Jian Chen had not even made it onto the Overgods' Plaque, yet his fame had already spread through the entire southern region and reached the northern region. He was so renowned that he was far more famous than Man Ye, who was also rumored to possess the strength to make it onto the Overgds' Plaque.
"Jian Chen of the southern region?" Jian Chen became slightly doubtful when he heard Man Ye's words. Why did he add 'southern region' to it? Was he no longer in the southern region?
However, it clearly was not the time to consider this question. He clasped his fist and said, "I am indeed Jian Chen. I just wonder if I am the same Jian Chen brother Man Ye speaks of. After all, there are many people that share the same names and surnames in the world."
"It is you. You're the same as in the rumors," Man Ye studied Jian Chen closely. Afterwards, he began to radiate with battle intent. He took a step forwards and stared at Jian Chen sharply, "Jian Chen, I want to challenge you."
"Do not be rude!" Tian Shuang said emotionlessly. She only cared about one thing right now, which was just what background Jian Chen possessed such that her sister Hao Yue would praise him so much.
Man Ye's presence immediately froze up and deflated like a balloon, disappearing completely in a single instance. He said politely, "Yes, master!"
Fairy Hao Yue glanced towards the imperial city and said to Jian Chen, "That little whore is still there. Jian Chen, come with me. It's time to deal with her." With that, fairy Hao Yue directly flew off. She did not move particularly quickly.
Behind her, Jian Chen hesitated slightly before immediately following along as well. He arrived in the floating garden with fairy Hao Yue. With a single glance, he saw Yaxi Lian, who dangled in the air.
At the same time, he also saw the huge crowds gathered below.
This sight immediately stunned Jian Chen. Fairy Hao Yue had actually left the commander of the seventh army of the Empyrean Demon Cult, Yaxi Lian, dangling in the air naked so that countless people could admire her as they pleased.
He did not dare to imagine just how great the commotion would be if the news made it back to the Empyrean Demon Cult and the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian where the war was happening.
