Chapter 766 – Cultivation breakthrough (4)
One could only see her dressed in a purple brocade skirt made of muslin, so long that it trailed on the ground. A long, snow-white satin cloth was softly wrapped around her fine jade-like arms. Her long jet-black hair gave off a sparkling and translucent luster.
Her facial features seemed to be finely carved like delicate gems. Her fine jade-like nose was lovable and charming, with lips the colour of which was as bright as oriental cherry blossoms. She was so beautiful, that she could not have been produced locally.
At this time, she looked like the fairy from the ninth heavens, coming down to the mortal world. From high up in the sky, with every step she took, a lotus grew as she slowly descended. Like fireworks, she was like a mist, seemingly made of nothingness but gorgeous!
When they saw this woman’s appearance, almost everyone inhaled a breath of cold air.
Who was this woman?
Many people were asking this question inside their hearts.
This woman walked over to Grandmaster Rong Yun with graceful movements. Finally, she stood in front of him determinedly. Her facial expression consisted of a smile. That pair of pitch-black and deep, well-like eyes flashed with a trace of cold light.
Seeing the person who had just arrived, Grandmaster Rong Yun’s clean and handsome eyebrows wrinkled slightly, the look in his eyes appearing even more complicated.
“Rong Yun, long time no see.” The corner of the absolutely beautiful woman’s mouth raised with a hint of an enchanting smile that could attract and absorb a person’s soul.
Grandmaster Rong Yun frowned and humphed indifferently: “Fairy Yan Xia, I trust you have been well since we last met.”
Fairy Yan Xia?
Just these three words suddenly frightened everyone so much that their complexions became pale. They lowered their eyes, to make it pleasing to the eyes, and dared not cast half a gaze at her again.
It was Fairy Yan Xia!
At that time, what kind of awe-inspiring character was this?
Legend said that she cruelly murdered her superior, and that she killed people like cutting grass. Once, during one night, she massacred every family in a city.
It was also rumored that she had once stolen many talented children that the ten most powerful families were cultivating, provoking the ten most powerful families to send out the order to kill her.
Even up till now, on the continent’s bounty list, the monetary reward for her was still ranked at number two.
Now, she actually openly appeared in the Eastern Ling Empire, furthermore, in a public place with numerous people.
From Fairy Yan Xia’s face, one could not see any hints from the marks of time.
At this time, she was still as pretty as a young lady. Her skin was like condensed amber, one blow could break it.
Everyone bowed their heads in succession, muttering to themselves inwardly.
Rumour had it that Fairy Yan Xia had loved Grandmaster Rong Yun bitterly for many years. Could it be that the rumour was actually true?
Fairy Yan Xia stood fixedly before Grandmaster Rong Yun. This absolute beauty had on a complexion of being fully occupied. A cold light flashed across that pair of beautiful eyes.
“Rong Yun, is this the personal disciple you want to accept?” Fairy Yan Xia sized Li Yaoyao up from top to bottom.
Li Yaoyao had a thin scarf covering her face. Tender and beautiful, she was faintly discernible and appeared even more quick-witted.
Seeing Li Yaoyao’s appearance, Fairy Yan Xia’s eyes flashed, the corners of her eyes evoking a taunting sneer.
Grandmaster Rong Yun seemed somewhat displeased and lightly humphed: “Is this a place you can come to? Why don’t you hurry up and go.”
“I asked you something, you really want to accept this youn
g girl that’s as delicate as a flower, to be your personal disciple?” On Fairy Yan Xia’s beautiful-as-a-flower face, the smile did not diminish.
Grandmaster Rong Yun frowned, he just remained silent and said nothing.
However, this silence of his, was like tacit agreement in Fairy Yan Xia’s eyes.
She did not bother Grandmaster Rong Yun again and instead turned her head to directly size up Li Yaoyao: “So, it’s you that has been following at Rong Yun’s side for half a year’s time?”
Li Yaoyao felt somewhat nervous inside her heart.
As the one of the ten super influential family and the Jade Lake’s Li family’s little princess, she naturally knew more than other people about things.
Wasn’t Fairy Yan Xia already secretly attacked and killed by the number one highest awarded person on the bounty list? How could she be appearing now?
“Jade Lake’s fairy? Tsk, tsk, tsk——” Spite and disdain appeared in Fairy Yan Xia’s eyes, “I’ll give you a chance now, do you want to withdraw voluntarily or be forced to withdraw?”
“The meaning of Fairy Yan Xia’s words, this person from the younger generation does not understand.” At her back, she had Jade Lake’s Li family as a supporter. Li Yaoyao raised her eyes, neither servilely nor overbearingly. Her expression was calm and collected as she smilingly looked at Fairy Yan Xia.
“Hearing this tone of yours, you don’t intend to withdraw voluntarily?” The corner of Fairy Yan Xia’s mouth hooked up darkly.

“What business is it of the senior when it comes to this young one formally becoming an apprentice? Senior had better go without delay. Otherwise, you may not be able to leave.” Li Yaoyao grit her teeth, pretending to be calm and composed.
If she could be persuaded by Fairy Yan Xia to withdraw with just a few lines, then in the future, what face would she have to stand in this world? How would the common people see her?
Therefore, Li Yaoyao must give a rejection firmly. Even though the corner of Fairy Yan Xia’s mouth had raised up in a strange smile, that gave birth to fear in her heart.
“Tsk, tsk, tsk, having not left the mountain for so many years, even a silly little girl could bully this fairy.” Fairy Yan Xia cast a mocking glance at Li Yaoyao, then her gaze met with Grandmaster Rong Yun’s line of sight.
“At that time, what you promised, does it still count?” Fairy Yan Xia unblinkingly looked at Grandmaster Rong Yun.
In the throne room, everyone below the steps were all extremely curious.
They did not dare to meet Fairy Yan Xia’s flamboyant gaze, and also did not dare to look face to face with Grandmaster Rong Yun’s eyes that were remote and deep as an abyss.
However, their lowered eyes were raging with flames for gossip.
Grandmaster Rong Yun and Fairy Yan Xia… Could it be that back then, they really had a love affair?
The promise Grandmaster Rong Yun made to Fairy Yan Xia… What could it be?
But they could not press them and did not dare to make any sound. They could only quietly wait for the gossip to explode.
Only after a long time could the sound of Grandmaster Rong Yun sighing softly be heard.
“Litte Yan, is there a need for you to be like this again?”
Just a little nickname actually made Fairy Yan Xia’s figure shake slightly. When she lifted those eyes again, that pair of eyes, that were like frozen ice, had a trace of melting.
“I just want to be this way, what are you going to do about it!” Seeing Rong Yun’s tensely-knit eyebrows and clearly rather awkward expression on his handsome face, strong evil tendencies streaked across Fairy Yan Xia’s face.
That time, when she confessed her affection to him, he also had this sort of expression.
She simply hated this expression of his.
“Little Yan, is there a need for you to be like this?” Grandmaster Rong Yun sighed, rather conspicuously embarrassed.
“You say it! Does that promise still count or not!”
In front of the person she actually loved, Fairy Yan Xia, who was originally exceedingly correct and indifferent, was also just like an ordinary person.
Grandmaster Rong Yun pondered over it slightly. Clearly, he was having a hard time making a decision. Only after muttering irresolutely to himself with half a promise, he then looked towards Li Yaoyao.
“You are determined to pay your respect to a master?”
Li Yaoyao did not know exactly what drug Grandmaster Rong Yun and Fairy Yan Xia were selling inside their own conversation.
But, for the matter of paying her respect to a master, she was incomparably resolute.
In order to let her pay respect to him as master, what kind of hardships and great price did the Jade Lake’s Li family pay?
As a result, Li Yaoyao took a step forward, bowed and made her salute: “Yes, I, Li Yaoyao, am resolutely determined. I must pay my respect to you as my master.”
Grandmaster Rong Yun’s eyes paused: “You really have thought it through clearly?”
The originally indifferent and refined Grandmaster Rong Yun quite uncharacteristically seemed somewhat long-winded.
This was not something he would characteristically do.
However, although Li Yaoyao felt there was something strange about Grandmaster Rong Yun’s behaviour, but because of being intellectually occupied by the execution of the plan of paying respect to the master, she nodded seriously and said: “Yes!”
“Then, you should kneel down.” Grandmaster Rong Yun sighed slowly and seemed somewhat regretful.
Hearing what was said, Li Yaoyao’s heart was joyful.
After going through untold hardships, Grandmaster Rong Yun finally wanted to accept her as a disciple!
Consequently, Li Yaoyao, who was crying tears of joy, hurriedly kneeled on both knees on the ground. She paid respect, by knocking her head loudly to the ground three times in succession.
However, just after she had finished knocking her head loudly for the third time, Grandmaster Rong Yun’s figure had already moved ten meters away.
In his place, was Fairy Yan Xia’s sinister and smiling complexion!
“Hahaha, Li Yaoyao, hurry up and pay respect to your master!” Fairy Yan Xia smiled darkly as she looked at her sideways. Her eyes were full of evil tendencies.
Confronted with this suddenly occurring great change, Li Yaoyao’s entire person was stupefied.
