Chapter 372: How Could There Be Only One Opponent In Life?
Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
A moment later, Chu Yun gradually became familiar with this strange chess set. In addition to her luck and Chen Chen’s deliberate compromise, she finally won once.
Looking at her empty hand, Chu Yun revealed a joyful smile from the bottom of her heart. It was as if she had defeated a cultivator of the same realm and reached the peak of her life.
“Fellow Daoist Chen, you clearly had four ‘5’ chess pieces just now. Why did you open them?”
Looking at the remaining chess pieces in Chen Chen’s hand, Chu Yun asked curiously.
Chen Chen threw down the cards in his hand and said bitterly, “Life is like this. Sometimes, you have to sacrifice something in order to gain something.”
“I see. This chess game is really profound.”
Chu Yun revealed a thoughtful expression as if she was thinking about some truth in life.
After that, the two of them played a few more “chess” games. Chu Yun played very seriously, and every card she played was extremely cautious.
When Chen Chen saw this, he could only put on an act and put on an enigmatic look.
Playing cards was extremely boring. The two of them who did not get any money ran quickly, but he actually played like a sage.
This kind of feeling was quite rare.
Unknowingly, the sky gradually darkened, but Chu Yun was still enjoying it. Chen Chen was about to fall asleep from playing.
Seeing that this woman still had no intention of leaving, he couldn’t help but remind her, “Fellow Daoist, it’s getting dark…”
Hearing this, Chu Yun looked out of the window. Only then did she realize that half a day had passed. Only then did she realize that she had lost her composure.
After playing this strange chess game for half a day, she didn’t understand what kind of person Chen Chen was. Instead, she almost lost herself in this chess game.
Could it be that those female cultivators from a few days ago were also like this?
Chu Yun hurriedly stood up and said with an apologetic expression, “I’ve affected your cultivation Fellow Daoist. I’m really sorry. However, I wonder if you would be willing to lend me this chess game so that I can go back and observe it?”
Chen Chen waved his hand and immediately agreed. A set of bamboo pieces was not worth much, so what was there to be unwilling about.
Chu Yun was very happy when she heard this. She carefully put away the ‘chess set and bowed slightly as a form of gratitude. Then, she left Chen Chen’s room.
As soon as she left, Li Xiang suddenly opened her eyes in a nearby cultivation room. There was a hint of coldness in her eyes.
“This woman actually stayed in that pretty boy’s room for so long. What did she do? Could she have done something indecent?”
Thinking of this, she felt a burst of anger in her heart.
Since Chu Yun’s master had a conflict with her master, she and Chu Yun had been secretly competing with each other, and they did not like each other.
Her cultivation talent was outstanding, and in terms of strength, she was slightly stronger than Chu Yun.
However, Chu Yun was not bad either. The key point was that Chu Yun was also good at many other things, and she did not know any of those.
Therefore, in the sect, Chu Yun was more popular than her, which made her feel a little uncomfortable.
Now that she sensed that Chen Chen was cheating on her master with Chu Yun, the anger in her heart was rising one wave after another, and she could not contain it at all.
“No, if that woman still goes tomorrow, I must expose this adulterous pair on the spot! Hmph!”
With a cold snort, Li Xiang closed her eyes.
The next day, Chu Yun once again brought the food to Chen Chen’s room. At this time, her heart was full of mixed feelings, and she was even a little nervous.
Last night, she did not sleep or cultivate. She was only studying that chess set. In the end, she found something that she could not figure out.
Why could the other four chess pieces be the same to form a bomb, while the big and small king pieces were clearly different, yet they could form the biggest bomb.
Recalling what Chen Chen had said yesterday about the big king representing the sect master and the little king representing the Grand Elders, her heart became even more complicated.
Could it be that Chen Chen had known something long ago, so he had used this chess set to hint at her?
To tell her that only the sect master and Grand Elder could unite as one to stabilize the sect?
The more she thought about it, the more she felt that this was the case. If Chen Chen had already known that she and her master had done something behind the scenes, then the people she had sent out earlier would have looked a little ridiculous.
Sighing, Chu Yun knocked on the door and then entered the room.
Not long after, the two of them began to “play chess” in the room again.
To be honest, Chen Chen was a little scared. Although the woman in front of him was still pretty, it was a little boring for the two of them to play “Run fast”.
With that thought, he smiled and said, “Fellow Daoist, why don’t we raise the bet? Only in this way can we better understand the philosophy of life when we lose.”
Chu Yun didn’t refuse. Seeing this, Chen Chen took out ten supreme-grade Spirit Stones from his storage ring and then agreed to pay the other party one supreme-grade Spirit Stone if they lost a game.
“Fellow Daoist, I didn’t expect that with your cultivation level, you would only use one supreme-grade Spirit Stone as a wager.”
Chu Yun looked at the Spirit Stone and said with a smile. At the same time, she also took out ten supreme-grade Spirit Stone.
Chen Chen casually explained, “When you and I play chess, I win more than I lose. If the wager is too big, I’ll take too much advantage.”
Chu Yun was stunned when she heard this. In her heart, she felt that Chen Chen’s character wasn’t bad.
All this while, she had never asked Chen Chen how he hooked up with the sect master. Today, she had to find an opportunity to ask him.
However, the two of them had only played a few games of “Go” when the door was suddenly opened. Li Xiang, who was tall and slender, barged in with a cold expression. Her face was full of anger.
When Chen Chen saw this, he subconsciously picked up the Spirit Stones and prepared to run away. However, just as he stood up, he realized that there was no one in this world who would arrest anyone for gambling.
With that thought in mind, he sat down with a calm expression and asked lightly, “Girl, what are you doing?”
Li Xiang looked at the chess pieces on the table and the two neatly dressed people, and her expression changed again and again.
For the sake of privacy, the rooms in the sect were all shielded from the detection by divine senses so she had no idea what was going on inside before she entered.
Now that she had barged in, the situation inside was completely different from what she had imagined. For a moment, she didn’t know what to say.
“Senior Sister, why are you here?” Chu Yun stood up, bowed, and asked.
“What are you doing?” Li Xiang asked with an unfriendly gaze.
Chu Yun knew what Li Xiang was thinking, and her pretty face blushed slightly. She hurriedly explained, “Fellow Daoist Chen and I are playing chess.”
Li Xiang looked at the scattered chess pieces on the table, and her eyes were full of suspicion.
“It’s like this…”Chu Yun began to explain.
This explanation lasted for half an hour, and Li Xiang was finally given a clear explanation.
Li Xiang’s eyes were curious, but her expression was still cold. When Chu Yun saw this, she said, “Senior Sister, why don’t you and Fellow Daoist Chen play a game?”
Li Xiang was a little tempted when she heard this, but she couldn’t bring herself to play chess with Chen Chen, her newly found “father”…
At this time, Chen Chen waved his hand and said, “There’s no need for that. Three people can play this game.”
After saying that, Chen Chen couldn’t help but cry in his heart.
Finally, he didn’t want to play the game of “Running fast” anymore. If these two women were smarter, they could even play a game of “FIghting the Landlord” or “Exploding Golden Flowers”.
Chu Yun was overjoyed when she heard this and asked, “Fellow Daoist, are you serious?”
“Of course. This chess game is like life, and how can there be only one opponent in life? Not to mention three people, even if you find thirty people and I use a few more sets of cards… I can still play chess.”
Chen Chen said calmly with an unfathomable look on his face.
Li Xiang slowly sat down at the side when she heard this. When she saw that Chen Chen and Chu Yun had a few supreme-grade Spirit Stones on the table, she immediately took out a few supreme-grade Spirit Stones without thinking.
A moment later.
A strange sound came from within Chen Chen’s room.
“I can’t afford it.”
“Three against two.”
