Chapter 680: The Burial Plateau
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Everything afterward went extremely smooth for Luo Yunyang. Because they were subordinates in Long Xinyue's team, they received their seals rather smoothly.
The martialists unable to join the combat teams helmed by the various geniuses from the great sects were all striving for the sake of obtaining a placing to enter the Burial Plateau.
“Seems like my insight is still rather great. You are indeed living off a woman!” Mo Yunying, who was also under Long Xinyue, said sarcastically.
Mo Yunying had always remained polite to Luo Yunyang in front of Yin Feihuan. However, her sharp barbs would appear the moment Yin Feihuan wasn't around.
At first, Luo Yunyang didn't care about Mo Yunying and her poisonous tongue. However, upon realizing that she wasn't willing to curb her jabs, he asked snidely, “Do you really wish to let my Junior Sister marry your Senior Brother?”
“It's not just my wish. They are a match made in heaven,” Mo Yunying said while pointing in the distance.
Yin Feihuan and Mo Yunshen came together from a distance. Appearance-wise, they looked rather compatible.
Luo Yunyang, who did not wish to continue bickering with Mo Yunying, sneered. “You don't say.”
“No way, Junior Sister Yin Feihuan is the partner master has arranged for me. According to the rules, she cannot be married off.”
He watched Mo Yunying's eyes widen in rage before continuing. “Then… you tell me. How much do you want to see the two of them become a match?”
“Extremely!” Mo Yunying said resolutely. “Don't hang on to any delusions, got it? Only my elder brother can match someone like Sis Feihuan.”
She then said in a threatening tone, “If you dare interfere flagrantly, don't blame the Irregular Star Sect for taking this into its own hands.”
Luo Yunyang shook his head. “How can I stop it? Aren't I helping you come up with a plan? Look, Junior Sister Feihuan was the match set for me by the master, so your brother's wish to marry her is a little difficult to fulfill. I do feel that we could try out an idea that could help your brother achieve this. This plan would ensure that I don't end up old and lonely either. Let me know what you think. I might as well swap a bride. Feihuan will stay with your brother and you will be with me!”
“What are you saying?” Mo Yunying, who was embarra.s.sed and angry, looked as if she was about to explode.
“I think I put it rather clearly. The two of us are rather compatible too.” Although Luo Yunyang was smirking inwardly, he kept a straight face.
“I will kill you, you pervert!” Mo Yunying, who was agitated upon seeing Luo Yunyang's absurd att.i.tude, rushed haphazardly over at him.
Mo Yunying's cultivation base simply wasn't enough in the face of Luo Yunyang's. However, her tremendous howl was very powerful.
There were over 1,000 elites from various great sects in Long Xinyue's team. They had all gathered and become subordinates of Long Xinyue for a variety of reasons.
Because Long Xinyue was on the beauty charts, more than half of these people were women.
It could be said that this was a dazzling troop.
After just experiencing the incident with the Lianhua Sky Sect, the entire team was very sensitive to the word pervert.
Over 100 people enveloped Luo Yunyang at practically the moment he evaded Mo Yunying's attack.
Some of their auras were like blazing suns, while others were like raging gales. There were even some that were like chilly long swords cutting through the sky.
Luo Yunyang regretted joking with this b*tch that had been annoying him all day when he felt all these waves of energy!
Little chili-like Mo Yunying was really intense.
“What's going on?” The fairy-like Long Xinyue floated in the sky. Although she had a calm demeanor, the pressure she exerted as she descended made the atmosphere seem to condense.
Mo Yunying attacked Luo Yunyang wantonly. In order not to seem too conspicuous, Luo Yunyang kept evading her.
From everyone else's point of view, he looked like a spent force.
“Stop!” Although she knew that her Ancestral Master was fine, Yin Feihuan still rushed over quickly and blocked Mo Yunying.
Mo Yunsheng also obstructed his younger sister and glared at Luo Yunyang murderously.
This low-life had actually dared to take liberties with his pure little sister!
This was unacceptable!
If it had not been for Yin Feihuan and Long Xinyue, who was standing aside, he would have definitely slain this annoying fellow with his sword right then and there.
“Yunying, what's going on?” Long Xinyue asked calmly while she looked at Mo Yunying.
Although the difference between a martialist like Mo Yunying and Long Xinyue wasn't quite large, this was the first time Long Xinyue had called out Mo Yunying's name.
Mo Yunying glared at Luo Yunyang furiously. She wished to say something but couldn't find the right words when she opened her mouth.
“Yunying, voice any grievances you have to Fairy Long. Fairy Long will definitely help you solve them,” Mo Yunsheng said as he shot Luo Yunyang a cold stare.
Although Mo Yunying was shrewd by nature, she really didn't know how to answer under the watchful eyes of so many people.
Long Xinyue's gaze fell on Luo Yunyang. “You talk! I am already using the Eyes of Truth. I will kill you if you dare utter any lies!”
Yin Feihuan had originally wanted to speak up, yet she stopped when she heard Long Xinyue say this. She shot a look at Luo Yunyang.
Her gaze was really complex.
Luo Yunyang simply didn't pay any heed to her. He observed the people gathered all around him. This was a headache indeed. He had tried to take advantage of the situation for personal gain, but he had quickly become the focus of everyone's attention.
“Mo Yuying said her brother liked my Junior Sister and asked me to stay further away from her. I… I said my master arranged Junior Sister's betrothal to me and I had no choice!”
After hesitating for a bit, Luo Yunyang continued pretending. “Mo Yunying said that I cannot measure up to Junior Sister.”
Yin Feihuan's face flushed upon hearing Luo Yunyang blurt out all this. Even though she knew her Ancestral Master was talking rubbish, she still felt somewhat happy.
Luo Yunyang then added, “I also feel that Junior Sister doesn't deserve me. However, I… I can't just not live up to the master's command.”
“Seeing that Mo Yunying was greatly hoping that I give up, I suggested that she… helps her brother by taking the place of my bride. Wouldn't that be a win-win situation?”
Mo Yunying's face turned red from embarra.s.sment before Luo Yunyang was done speaking. “Shut your mouth! I would rather marry a pig or a dog than a gigolo like you who lives off a woman!”
A chorus of hooting laughter rang out. Many people grinned as they watched Mo Yunying.
A smile also appeared on Long Xinyue's face. She didn't believe that this matter was poor form, yet Mo Yunying's reaction was a little too extreme.
“Alright, you can discuss this matter by yourselves in the future. Now, everyone prepare yourselves. We will be entering the Burial Plateau in a bit.”
Long Xinyue, who returned to her calm, composed manner, added, “The Burial Plateau offers countless opportunities. Even though various Heavenly Venerates have joined hands and suppressed the dangers to the lowest level, this doesn't imply that there isn't any danger.”
“I hope that you are able to gain a lot by following me and don't lose your life in the Burial Plateau.”
After saying that, she fixed her gaze back on Luo Yunyang. Although she was a little disgusted by this person, she said indifferently, “You… You must follow the rules in the future. Don't make things difficult for Little Sis Feihuan.”
With that, Long Xinyue turned and took her leave. The martialists that had come to watch the spectacle also dispersed one after the other.
Some ladies who were on good terms with Mo Yunying came over to her side and consoled her while mocking Luo Yunyang's naivety. He had aimed for someone way out of his league.
Given Mo Yunsheng's temper, anyone else that dared to take liberties with his beloved sister would have made him flare up long ago. However, he suppressed his rage as he saw Yin Feihuan standing beside Luo Yunyang.
“Let's go!” Yin Feihuan's reasoning told her that this matter should probably have transpired as her Ancestral Master had described. It was just a joke. However, she was still a little p.i.s.sed at Luo Yunyang.
This was an extremely weird feeling. When she became aware of her expression, she made an effort to quickly put on a normal expression. However, she felt that she shouldn't smile at the Ancestral Master!
He had actually thought about exchanging brides!
By the time she returned to the camp with Luo Yunyang, the iciness in Yin Feihuan's face was gone. However, she felt a little unnatural while facing Luo Yunyang.
“Ancestral Master, after cracking such a joke, I'm afraid you won't have a good time in the entire Mysterious Great Sky Land down the line!”
Luo Yunyang felt like explaining before he mulled this over and simply said, “This is just my sort of camouflage.”
Yin Feihuan had thoroughly adulated Luo Yunyang after he had saved her sect. However, she found it somewhat funny this time.
Luo Yunyang was famous!
He was not just famous within Long Xinyue's team. Practically everyone from the other teams also knew his name.
Many people sneered, while some fellows looked sour.
Even though they found this gigolo king disdainful, deep down many people were envious of his good fortune.
Some of them complained that their own masters had never arranged a betrothal for them with a Junior Sister on the Beauty Charts!
As the sun rose, Luo Yunyang and Yin Feihuan followed Long Xinyue's team to a huge valley.
This valley was extremely craggy, and there was a gigantic cliff 10,000 fathoms high behind it. A small snaking path that climbed to the top of the cliff could be seen in the valley.
Luo Yunyang shuddered subconsciously when he saw that cliff. He sensed a pressure that he had never experienced before affecting his body.
What lay beyond this cliff was the Bureau Plateau. Luo Yunyang felt that he was the closest he had ever been to his Heavenly Venerate True Body.
