Not only did the sudden appearance of the dirty geezer shock Chen Xi's group of three, even Yun Lansheng's eyes squinted as the vital energy in his entire body rumbled, and his snow white hair fluttered as he stood on guard, as if he was confronted by a formidable enemy.
But Yun Lansheng seemed to have heaved a sigh of relief in his heart and withdrew his aura when he saw the dirty geezer's appearance clearly, and then he said with surprise and bewilderment, "Madman Liu, why have you actually come…?"
When he spoke up to here, he seemed to have recalled something, and he pointed at Chen Xi. "For him?"
The dirty geezer opened up his intoxicated eyes to glare at Yun Lansheng before cursing. "You're a madman, your whole family is filled with madmen!"
Yun Lansheng's face froze as he rubbed his nose and went silent. He understood this fellow extremely well, the dirty geezer was eccentric, yet possessed a peerlessly formidable strength, and he would absolutely not be able to gain any advantage in a bicker with the dirty geezer.
Chen Xi and the others were astounded. This fellow that seems like a beggar actually dares to speak like this to Yun Lansheng? Could it be that he's a formidable Earthly Immortal Realm expert as well?
Most surprising to Chen Xi was the dirty geezer was obviously looking for him. But… I clearly don't know him? No matter how he racked his brains, Chen Xi was unable to figure out exactly how this dirty geezer would know that he was Chen Xi.
"You really have the appearance of a talented person; your appearance is handsome and bones are brilliant. You really are a good seedling." The dirty geezer shook his head complacently when he saw Yun Lansheng shutting up obediently. After that, his gaze descended onto Chen Xi before he sized Chen Xi up while praising, and he seemed as if he'd noticed a piece of fine jade and didn't conceal his fondness in the slightest.
Perhaps Chen Xi would feel slightly embarrassed in his heart if he was praised by anyone else, yet when facing this dirty geezer that was entirely slovenly, there was only a strange feeling in his heart.
It was like a beggar was playing the part of an otherworldly expert that was telling his fortune by studying his bone structure, and it was covered in an absurd feeling no matter how he looked at it.
But from Yun Lansheng's earlier reaction, Chen Xi knew that this dirty geezer called Madman Liu was surely an extraordinary expert, and he naturally wouldn't dare judge the dirty geezer by his appearance.
"Senior…" He took a deep breath and was just about to speak when he was interrupted with a wave of the hand by Madman Liu. "Don't call me senior, it's too distant, I don't like it."
Chen Xi was stunned, and then he said with a smile, "Then how should I address you?"
"In any case, you're my disciple from now on, so address me according to that." Madman Liu stroked his goatee while grinning.
Chen Xi was shocked and said, "Senior…"
"I told you I don't like you calling me senior!" Madman Liu glared as he angrily interrupted Chen Xi once more.
Chen Xi's mouth opened and closed once more. He finally understood Yun Lansheng's feelings as speaking with this dirty geezer could really cause one to be suffocated to death.
"Madman Liu is an Earthly Immortal Realm expert of one of the three great sword sects of the Dark Reverie, the Nine Radiance Sword Sect. He has an eccentric personality, but his character isn't bad. Follow according to his intentions and see exactly why he has come. It wouldn't be late to make a decision after you've figured the situation out." Yun Lansheng's voice entered into his ears, allowing Chen Xi to finally understand this dirty geezer's identity. But what he was unable to wrap his head around was that there was no relationship between him and Madman Liu, so why would Madman Liu come looking for him?
Could it be…
A flash of enlightenment suddenly arose in Chen Xi's mind as he thought of a possibility, and it slipped out of his mouth. "You were sent over by Aunt Bai?"
Madman Liu was stunned before suddenly roaring with laughter, and he stretched out his hand to point at Chen Xi. "Not bad, not bad. Kid, you're quite intelligent and are much better than those stupid disciples I've taken."
After that, his expression turned serious as he shook his head and said, "I wasn't sent over by little girl Bai, it was she who begged me to come over. This absolutely can't be mistaken."
Chen Xi started smiling as well. He finally understood that this Madman Liu was really related to Aunt Bai, and it allowed him to easily understand why Madman Liu would have recognized his identity as soon as they met.
"Little girl Bai… From the Violet Thistle Mountain's Bai Clan?" The nearby Yun Lansheng spoke with surprise.
"Why ask so much? Could it be that you want to seize him from me?" Before Chen Xi could reply, Madman Liu glared and said, "Not to mention you, Yun Lansheng, it's impossible even if the Sect Master of the Heavenflow Dao Sect comes!"
Yun Lansheng shrugged and laughed bitterly without end. Anyone would feel their heads ache when encountering this old fellow that was difficult to deal with.
Qing Xiuyi looked around to the surroundings and saw numerous cultivators looking over here with strange expressions, and it caused her to feel rather uncomfortable to the point of being unable to refrain from frowning, so she said, "Let's go. Since he isn't an outsider, then let's go back before we continue."
"You…" Madman Liu was just about to say something yet he was instantly stunned when he saw Qing Xiuyi's appearance, and he cried out involuntarily. "This… Isn't this that…"
"Yes, it's her." Yun Lansheng nodded at the side.
"So in this way, she had already experienced a hundred reincarnations?" Madman Liu had a complicated expression as he muttered, and he seemed to have recalled some memories that were already sealed for a long time in his mind.
"Madman Liu!" Yun Lansheng frowned as he scolded.
"Oh, I understand, I surely won't speak carelessly." Madman Liu was stunned and seemed as if he was jolted awake from a dream, and then he let out a long sigh before glancing at Yun Lansheng with displeasure. "What a fierce tone! And you actually dare scold me? Want to have a fight?"
Yun Lansheng had a helpless expression. If it was possible, he really didn't wish to stay a moment longer with this troublesome old fellow. Unfortunately, it's probably impossible for this wish of mine to be realized.
When he thought up to here, he couldn't help but glance at Qing Xiuyi before taking a glance at the nearby Chen Xi, and he sighed in his heart. With his discerning gaze, how could he be unable to discern that the relationship between Chen Xi and Qing Xiuyi was beyond ordinary?
He was even extremely sure that if he brought up the suggestion of taking Qing Xiuyi away now, then before Chen Xi could make a reaction, Qing Xiuyi herself would absolutely not agree.
He couldn't do anything, so he could only choose to temporarily tolerate being together with Madman Liu.
Right at this moment, a group of people rushed over from afar. It was precisely Huangfu Qingying and the others. When they saw Chen Xi was safe and sound and had even rescued Zhen Liuqing and Qing Xiuyi, everyone revealed a trace of a relaxed expression and were extremely happy.
Being able to reunite once more with their companions in the dangerous Primeval Battlefield was undoubtedly something worthy of celebration.
That night, within the extremely vast hall in the northeast area, the sound of drinking wine and chatting resounded out like waves, and it was filled with cheer and joy.
Under the effect of wine, the chilly Zhao Qinghe became unrestrained, the straightforward Ling Yu turned joyful and childish, whereas Young Master Zhou even stripped off his top and competed with Madman Liu in drinking.
Even Qing Xiuyi, Zhen Liuqing, and Huangfu Qingying made an exception and had quite a bit of wine, causing all of their faces to flush red while their clear eyes turned alluring and were filled with flirtatiousness, and their beauty was capable of overturning the world.
Chen Xi grinned as he watched his scene, and for the very first time, he felt so relaxed and peaceful in the Primeval Battlefield.
How many battles had he experienced today to obtain the cheer and laughter of everyone while gathered together?
So it was especially worthy of being treasured and protected, right?
Chen Xi drank another cup of wine, causing the burning feeling of wine to spread throughout his body while his state of mind became even more firmer. No matter if it was for the sake of taking revenge or for the sake of the safety of his loved ones, any price he paid was a worthy price!
