Chapter 760 - Why are you so confident?
"I really don't know why you are so confident. Would you believe it if I tell you that nobody will shed even a single drop of tear for you if I just smacked you dead right now?" Now that Zuo Liang was definitely done for, Ye Zichen decided to mess around with him.
He was rather curious about why Zuo Liang was still able to laugh.
"You wouldn't dare," Zuo Liang maintained his smile without any hint of nervousness. "I forgot at the start, you are already someone who belongs to the sacred land of the Immortal Region. That means you should know that they cannot interfere with the normal clans in the outer regions."
"Then that's it," Zuo Liang smirked. "You should know that there are patrollers patrolling the outer regions, don't you?"
As if on cue, a fat and a thin man appeared out of nowhere.
The surrounding people looked at the pair in shock. Not long later, the thin man stepped forward and bowed towards Ye Zichen. "Your Majesty."
"You…" Ye Zichen wrinkled his brows. He did go over to the sacred land of the Immortal Region after fully fusing with the Yellow Emperor's memories, but he only stayed there for less than one day, he didn't even manage to remember all the important people, so there was no way he was going to know these small fries.
"We are the current patrollers on duty in the outer regions," said the thin man.
Meanwhile, the fat fatty fidgeted beside him. It was clear that he was rather nervous.
"Why did you come here?" Ye Zichen raised his eyebrows.
"we sensed someone mentioning the sacred land of the Immortal Region, so we came to have a look. We did not expect Your Grace to be here," the thin man replied.
"Ho? You managed to sense that?" Ye Zichen exclaimed.
Then, Zuo Liang snorted, "Great patrollers, please do this humble civilian justice. This Yellow Emperor of yours wants to interfere with our clan's business."
"Hmm?" The thin man tiled his head and looked at Zuo Liang in confusion.
"Ignore him. Just go wait by the side," Ye Zichen waved his hand.
The two patrollers obediently walked beside him.
Zuo Liang was slightly stunned by this turn of events. He quickly frowned, "What? Are you not going to do anything when the Yellow Emperor's trying to interfere with us?"
"Sorry, we don't have such rights," the thin man nodded with an apologetic smile.
Zuo Liang nearly choked on that answer.
I asked around before all this! The patrollers surpass anybody in the Immortal Region, and now they're telling me that they have no rights? You're kidding me!?
"Wow, what a wonderful sacred land of the Immortal Region. We trusted you for several tens of thousands of years. Everyone here is important to the outer region. You people see this? This is the Immortal Region we placed our faith it. Doesn't this mean that this Emperor Ye can just rob and kill whoever he wants? Since we don't even have somewhere to voice our complaints, then we might as well turn on ti!"
Before Zuo Liang could finish his sentence, a figure blinked in front of him. When Zuo Liang finally realized someone had appeared in front of him, he noticed a shimmering dagger against his throat.
"Your spread of lies deserves death!"
It was the nervous fatty.
Man, I really can't judge a book by its cover. While he looks fat, he's really quick on his toes.
The blade got even closer to Zuo Liang's throat. A trickle of blood flowed down the blood.
Zuo Liang was terrified, he didn't even dare to gulp. He could already feel the edge of the blade cutting against his skin. He was seriously afraid that the fatty will slice his throat.
"Now, now, don't scare him. We are from the sacred land of the Immortal Region, we are no bandits. Put the knife down," Ye Zichen patted the fatty's arm.
Zuo Liang's heart nearly jumped out of his chest.
Fortunately, the fatty had a stable hand, so Ye Zichen's pat didn't cause him to slice through Zuo Liang's throat.
"Emperor Ye, you are right. Uhm… When you have time, can you give me an autograph? I grew up listening to stories about you, I've always been your fan," the fatty said with a nervous blush.
Ye Zichen couldn't help but chuckle, "Of course."
"Thank you so much."
As the blade finally left Zuo Liang's neck, Zuo Liang let out a huge sigh of relief.
At that moment, he saw the fatty turn to Ye Zichen for an autograph…
He quickly shot backwards.
When Ruan Qingtian saw that he was going to hide back in the barrier again, he called out loudly, "Ye Zichen, don't let him get in there!"
Ye Zichen turned around. He saw that Zuo Liang had taken a few steps back.
He looked at Ruan Qingtian calmly, "Why are you so worked up?"
"No, he…" Ruan Qingtian wasn't sure of how to explain it. He could only show Ye Zichen by hammering in front of him.
"Ye Zichen, let's see what you're going to do now?" Zuo Liang laughed cockily.
Ye Zichen reached his hand out and felt the barrier.
He pushed against it a few times, then gave up.
"I really don't get why you're so excited. Yes, I can't get in, but can you come out? All you can do is hide within the barrier. Isn't that right?"
Zuo Liang froze for a moment. That seems to be the case.
Then, his eyes lit up as he saw Zuo Hongde.
"Zuo Liang, what are you trying to do to my father?" Zuo Mo quickly scolded when she saw Zuo Liang getting ideas about Zuo Hongde.
"What I am trying to do?" Zuo Liang smiled sinisterly and slowly walked towards Zuo Hongde with a smirk. "Indeed, I can't get out, but you can't come in. Don't force me. It's already a great deal for me when I got so many elders and the ex-clan head here with me."
"Shut up," Zuo Liang's gaze turned cold. He grabbed Zuo Hongde's throat with bloodshot eyes. "If you don't want him to die, then obey my command."
Ye Zichen laughed. He shrugged indifferently, only to vex Zuo Liang more.
"I can see that you want him to die. Zuo Mo, don't blame me for this. Blame Ye Zichen!"
With that, he put more force into his grip…
Zuo Liang felt a hand connect with his cheek.
When Zuo Liang came back to his senses, he saw that Ye Zichen, who was originally standing outside the barrier, standing right in front of him.
"I really don't know why you're so confident. How'd you know that I can't get in?"
