The fake young master’s expression was extremely fascinating to behold. He was using a disguising technique and hence, this wasn’t his real face. Everytime he acted, he would change an identity, proceeding in a very cautious manner.
In addition, he knew that were many from outside cities coming to this place, and his understanding of them was extremely thorough. These people from small cities wouldn’t dare to act recklessly or offend others as they weren’t capable of doing so. Hence, they would act extremely cautiously. So, as long as he acted well and behaved a little more domineeringly, he would usually get his way. Even if he failed, he would be able to leave easily.
For example this time around, he heard the conversations of the Wan Clan. Wan Yiyao said that after this, the Wan Clan would have a few more immortal kings and she seemed very excited. Clearly, the Wan Clan was an immortal-king power that came from outside. He was sure he would definitely succeed if he used scare tactics. But he didn’t expect his plan to be spoiled by Qin Wentian. But that’s fine as well, he can always choose to leave. But what’s worse is that the person he was impersonating was here, the true young master of the Duanmu clan.
His expression kept changing. After that, a thudding sound could be heard as he knelt directly, kowtowing to the real young master of the Duanmu Clan. “I have eyes but no sight, Young Master Duanmu, please spare my dog life.”
“Clean him up.” The young master quietly spoke. After which, those experts who brought the fake young master here nodded as terrifying auras gushed forth from them. After that, many of them instantly launched attacks, deleting the fake young master and his bodyguard away.
“They are all immortal kings.” The hearts of the crowd trembled. These people killed so cleanly, and after that, they moved the corpses away. Just like what the Duanmu young master had said – to clean them up.
“How tyrannical.” Wan Miaoyi sighed softly. Her beautiful eyes stared fixedly at the real Duanmu young master. This is a true major character, direct and tyrannical.
The people of the Wan Clan all looked at the young master with reverence in their eyes. A true major character was truly extraordinary, determining the life and death of others with a single sentence. Only people like this were legendary characters.
Only to see the young master of the Duanmu clan turning to Qin Wentian as he spoke, “Earlier you asked what sort of power my Duanmu Clan is. In any case, regardless of what level of power we are, it isn’t something you can imagine.”
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed, he didn’t expect that when he asked the fake young master the question, this also rankled the heart of the true young master of the Duanmu Clan. This young master must have felt that Qin Wentian was ill-informed, hence, he gave such a domineering reply.
“That’s only natural. For the brazen words uttered by this man, we beg young master Duanmu for your forgiveness.” Wan Qingshan hurriedly apologized and lifted his cup, “This time around, we have to thank young master Duanmu for resolving the crisis for us. We are filled with endless gratitude.”
As he spoke, he drained the contents in his cup. He didn’t offer any toast because he knew he wasn’t qualified.
Those watching the drama all smiled, this was the difference between minor and major characters. Before this, that fake young master could lie to them because the Wan Clan was undoubtedly minor characters. They didn’t dare to offend anyone or even dare to probe the fake young master at all. They decided to obediently sacrifice someone to save the rest.
Luckily there was a more intelligent young man in the Wan Clan, managing to expose the fake young master. However, this young man didn’t receive any heroic treatment nor thanks, on the contrary, the pretty lady earlier actually scolded him coldly, telling him that she didn’t need him to interfere. The others of Wan Clan also blamed him for being a busybody but now, when the true young master of the Duanmu Clan stood out, everyone was so respectful, even thanking him for exposing the fake earlier.
Could it be that the person they should be thankful to, isn’t the young man who first spoke out earlier?
At this instant, there was no doubt of the arrogance of major characters and the humility of the minor characters.
Qin Wentian naturally has seen through all of this. He came all the way here from a particle world, and had experienced the humility of minor characters and the glory of major characters. What has he not experienced before? Although the Wan Clan might be one of the lords of Skyflame City, over here, they are nothing but lowly ants.
These people made him feel pity, yet they were truly detestable as well.
“How boring.” Qin Wentian smiled at Zhiyin, lightly shaking his head.
“You can still laugh?” A smile also appeared in Zhiyin’s beautiful eyes.
“Since others are boring, I naturally can’t be too boring. In addition, there’s such an interesting beauty before my eyes.” Qin Wentian gracefully smiled, not minding the atmosphere at all. The Wan Clan were all minor characters, they naturally would have the humility of weaklings. He was different. So what if the Duanmu clan was an immortal-emperor power? What does that have to do with him?
Leaving aside a character from an immortal-emperor power, there are even immortal emperors wanting to kill him. How could he care for the attitude from some young master of just an immortal-emperor ranked power?
“Am I interesting?” Zhiyin blinked.
“Much more interesting than them.” Qin Wentian smiled.
“Enough.” Wan Miaoyan coldly berated. “Before this, I ignored the matter of Redwing for the sake of third uncle. Since you came with our Wan Clan on this trip, you should follow our orders. Right now, you kept fooling around here, it’s fine if something happened to you, but you shouldn’t implicate my Wan Clan.”
“When has he ever implicated our Wan Clan?” At this moment, Zhiyin stood up, staring at Wan Miaoyan.
Staring at Zhiyin’s movements, a strange look appeared on Qin Wentian’s face. Wan Miaoyan and the others froze as well. Zhiyin, who has always avoided competition and conflict, was actually standing up for him?
She had never stood up for her clan members when they fought with the juniors from other clans before yet now, she was standing up for an outsider?
“Old third, the daughter whom you taught. She truly is excellent.” Wan Qingshan’s voice was cold, his words causing Wan Zhuqing’s expression to change. In reality, earlier Wan Qingshan didn’t hesitate to sacrifice Zhiyin, how could he not be angry at that? He was actually now enduring. Now, these people are all showing their hypocritical side.
“Second uncle, you are an elder that’s why I respect you. However, the things which happened earlier are clear for all to see. All of you are cowards, wanting to push me out to die. If Qin Wentian didn’t act to stop it, and if there was no real young master of the Duanmu Clan, I might have really already become the sacrifice for you all. Doesn’t the Wan Clan feel shame for this? Qin Wentian stepped out to save our Wan Clan’s face, all of you didn’t feel gratitude and are now even blaming him? Zhiyin wishes to ask second uncle, are you even worthy of respect?”
Zhiyin slowly spoke. Not interested in competition and conflict didn’t mean that she wouldn’t do so when the situations called for it. Each of her words were the truth, and stung extremely bad. Who was wrong and who was right could be determined with a single glance.
“Impudent.” Wan Qingshan’s countenance turned unsightly, smacking his palm on the table as waves of cold intent gushed forth from him.
“Before this, I didn’t discover that your mouth is so sharp.” Wan Yiyao coldly spoke.
“Old third, your daughter is refuting an elder. Tell me what do you think you should do?” Wan Qingshan’s voice was cold.
“What’s so difficult? I knew all of you never liked me. I will just leave then.” Zhiyin lightly spoke, in an extremely calm manner.
“Hehe, you truly have the heart to betray us and have never deemed yourself as one of the Wan Clan before.” Wan Qingshan instantly added another crime of betrayal to Zhiyin.
“Everyone, enough!” At this moment, Wan Zhuqing suddenly roared, causing everyone to quiet down, turning to stare at him.
“This time around, why did our Wan Clan come here? Second brother, you should know in your heart what you did. And having an internal fight before the public, what does this seem like? I, Wan Zhuqing, am still the number three of the Wan Clan. Second brother if you still treat me like your younger brother, we should temporarily leave this issue aside and make no mention of it until after we return to the Wan Clan.” Wan Zhuqing spoke.
Wan Qingshan’s gaze was cold, “Since old third has spoken, I will temporarily not pursue this. When we return to our clan, we will have an accounting. It’s just that your little friend best not interfere in our matters too much or I won’t be polite.”
“If this didn’t implicate Zhiyin, I wouldn’t even bother.” Qin Wentian sat there, calmly replying, as though everything had nothing to do with him.
“Zhiyin, let’s go back to rest.”
“Mhm.” Zhiyin nodded her head lightly. After which, the two of them stood up and departed directly.
“Kinship should always be first. That young man is no different when compared to the fake young master. Old third, you should pay more attention to your daughter.” Wan Qingshan coldly mocked. Wan Zhuqing unhappily flicked his sleeves and left.
In the courtyard which Zhiyin was staying at, melodious zither music could be heard. In an instant, all worries melted away, and Qin Wentian forgot about the boring things which happened just earlier. He quietly faced Zhiyin who was sitting in a pavilion, as he enjoyed the music, relaxing himself, even forgetting about cultivation.
After the music ended, Qin Wentian’s eyes were still closed but there was a smile on his face. “My mood did indeed get better. Zhiyin, why would such a marvelous person like you be in the Wan Clan?”
“How can I be considered a marvelous person?” Zhiyin lightly shook her head.
“How can you not count as one? No matter from which aspect, you are superior to Wan Miaoyan.” Qin Wentian smiled.
“Wan Miaoyan is the number one genius and beauty of our Wan Clan.” Zhiyin replied in a light voice.
“I can’t determine talent, but at the very least from the perspective of beauty, you are more prettier than her.” Qin Wentian laughed.
Zhiyin froze. She stared at Qin Wentian, “You have never seen my face before, how would you know?”
“Instinct.” Qin Wentian continued lying there with his eyes closed.
“Maybe your instincts are wrong.” Zhiyin’s voice was still as soft. Qin Wentian sat up and opened his eyes, smiling as he turned about. After that, his eyes stared at the young woman before him.
Zhiyin removed her veil, her beautiful eyes that were like the beauty which could only be found in poetry, was looking at him as a smile appeared on her face. Her smile was pure and clean, and there were no hints of complexity in her eyes.
“Seems like my instincts are pretty inaccurate.” Qin Wentian seriously spoke and shook his head, “My instincts are too bad, comparing Wan Miaoyan to you is basically an insult to you.”
“Yet my instincts told me that everyone else at the scene treated the Duanmu young master as a legendary major character while you were extremely calm, with no fluctuations to your heart. Your gaze when looking at him, was like looking at an ordinary man. This indicated that in your eyes, you probably don’t even care even if he is from an immortal-emperor ranked power right?” Zhiyin softly spoke.
Qin Wentian stared at the flawlessly pure young woman before him as he smiled, “For those who are pure in their thoughts, their sensitivity to things are much higher compared to ordinary people. The vast majority of people in this world have eyes but they can’t see what is right before them. As for you, you are able to sense things a lot more clearly. Right now, I can be sure that Wan Miaoyan’s talent is also inferior to yours.”
“You spoke so much, even changing the topic. Are you just silently admitting to what I said?” Zhiyin smiled.
“Naturally.” Qin Wentian nodded, as the two of them exchanged glances and laughed!
