Xuanyuan Che lifted his cup of tea and took a small sip. “That is because even their servants are all highly skilled assassins, and they are just keeping in line with the norm of their profession. They cannot afford to be recognized when they carry out their missions and that is why they all have to be masked.”
Lian Shao Jie nodded, his gaze glancing at the cold and aloof young woman opposite. She just sat there, and it was probably because of her icy personality, no one around her was talking to her. She always had two other young women following her around but for some unknown reason, they had not come with her this time.
Lian Shao Jie curved his lips up in a smile, as he nudged the man beside him with his shoulder. “With such a frosty personality, what kind of a man do you think it would be that will finally conquer a woman like that?”
“You’re well suited for that.” Xuanyuan Che said emotionlessly.
Lian Shao Jie was startled by that reply and he then said with a laugh: “Having fun at my expense? Is it because you are actually still unable to let go of her and was unhappy hearing what I just said…..”
Hearing that, Xuanyuan Che laughed lightly, his good looking countenance tinged with a barely perceptible but meaningful smile. “I thought that since you are always talking about her before me, I thought that you might have developed an interest in the Faint MIst Sect’s greatest beauty instead?”
Lian Shao Jie almost choked, before he glared at the man beside him. “Nonsense! I wouldn’t want to press a warm face against cold buttocks.”
“Oh, so you’re just not confident, and is worried that it will be a loss of face when you fail to conquer the woman.” Xuanyuan Che said, his face looking like something just dawned on him.
Lian Shao Jie knew that he would not win this guy in an argument, so he just scoffed coldly with a grunt, and then clamped his mouth shut, not going to say another word.
“Have the people from the Faint Mist Sect and the Limitless Sect arrived?”
Feng Qi and Yi Han who were just about to make their way to the Carefree Valley’s guest hall immediately froze in their steps when they heard that voice, a little surprised when they saw the man walking out slowly from the bamboo house.
Yi Han was a man whose face had ruggedly good looks, a towering and brawny figure, an assassin in the Assassins Temple well known for his strength. It was said that the strength of those fists could kill a ferocious wild beast, their power explosively powerful.
“Ah Zhan, you’re here in the valley?” Feng Qi asked, his eyes blinking in surprise. Remembering the man’s question, he then nodded. “Someone came in to inform us that they have arrived, and we were just about to make our way over there.”
He then seemed to recall something else after saying that and opened his mouth to say: “Oh right. You asked me to look for a young lady with outstanding looks and unsurpassing skills in Medicine, and I have located a few targets…..”
“No need. I already found her.” Xi Zhan Chen interrupted the man, and then went on walking off in front.
Feng Qi and Yi Han looked at each other. [Is he….. going to the guest hall?]
[Has the sun risen up in the west today? Why does it feel like there’s something strange about the man ever since he came back from his last trip?]
