Chapter 2053: The Little Master
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
The corners of her lips twitched. Just about a hundred meters behind her, an old man in grey rode a strange-looking mutant beast with a swagger. The expressionless Zhuo Junyue tagged along beside the old man. Seeing these two people following her silently, she could not help but slap her forehead with a sigh.
Seeing that Feng Jiu had already noticed them, the old man grinned without showing consciousness of following people at all. He waved at Feng Jiu excitedly. “Hey, Little Scoundrel…” In the middle of speaking, he changed his speech and didn’t call out little scoundrel anymore, but “Little Master.”
Hmph. When it came to cheekiness, if the old man claimed to be the second, nobody would dare to claim as the first. Although he was at a disadvantage, he felt so excited at the thought of being able to learn Tai Chi.
So, it didn’t matter whether she agreed or not! He called her little master first and then kept pestering her. In the end, he didn’t believe that she wouldn’t teach him.
“Why didn’t you follow them but follow me instead?” She asked helplessly. The old man was too much of a shirk. Didn’t he worry that all those people would die in this place? They’ve at least spent time together during this trip, why didn’t he care if they live or die?
“I told them to return first. Why does the old man need to keep protecting them?” The old man answered, motioning to his mount to step forward. When he arrived at Feng Jiu’s side, he said again. “Besides, the old man wants to learn Tai Chi from you! I’ve called you Little Master, so you can’t cheat!”
“I didn’t force you to call me that.” Feng Jiu glanced at him. “What’s more, I didn’t say that I will teach!”
“You, you, you can’t do this.” The old man spoke with some grievances, but there was nothing he could do about it.
Feng Jiu looked at him. After giving it a thought, she said, “I will go back after finishing my task. It’s also inconvenient to stay here for a long time. You know I have the Aurora Teleportation Device and I’ll be far faster than you when I get away.”
“Speak the human language.” The old man glared at her. Don’t you need to use plain language when speaking to others?
“I said, it’s no use following me. You never know when I’ll be gone. Since you want to learn, I can give you a way.” Feng Jiu looked at him.
“What way? I’m telling you, I’ll only learn from you. Don’t push me out to any sloppy people.” He snorted and looked proud. “Not everyone can get the old man to call him Little Master.”
“You don’t need to call anyone Master. Look for a man called Leng Hua in the Hundred Rivers City’ Heavenly Pill Tower. I taught him Tai Chi, so you can learn from him. “She smiled with her eyes narrowed.
“That won’t do! How much has he learned from what you taught? The old man doesn’t dare to be taught by anyone without accomplishments. ” He turned his eyes, stared at Feng Jiu and asked, “What are you going to do in the depths of the forest?”
Feng Jiu looked into the deepest part of the Volcano Forest when she heard his question. “Since I have come here, I want to bring back some Volcanic Flare Stones to see if they are really useful treasures.”
“In that case, wouldn’t it be better for us to follow you? We can take care of each other on the road! Besides, the old man is injured now. If someone wants the old man’s life, won’t the old man die? Besides, I’ve been here and am familiar with this place. ” He said triumphantly with an expression on his face that he knew where the Volcanic Flare Stone was.
Seeing this, Feng Jiu took a glance at him and swept her gaze over Zhuo Junyue. She finally nodded. “That’s fine.”
