Chapter 399: You’ll Get Pregnant
Translated by Jouissance of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
The expressions of the “nostrils-for-eyes” Vermilion Blood Clan twisted as one.
You XiaoMo’s words truly showed his talent for offending people. Though he hadn’t specified who he was talking about explicitly, anyone would know who he meant. Plus, these words were even said in front of very people he was talking about, so the effects were even more impactful.
The only one who knew the full situation was Ling Xiao, who silently gazed skywards.
Yet, what was unexpected was that the Vermilion Blood Clan’s people didn’t erupt in rage then and there.
Hu KangNing’s complexion had turned ugly, but, as if being held back by someone, didn’t act despite how he was trembling with rage, red-eyed, and looking as if he wanted to rip You XiaoMo to shreds.
The person who was stopping him was You QingShan.
It was then that Cheng DongQing from the Mage Guild glanced at You XiaoMo with an insincere smile and said to You QingShan, “Brother QingShan, I truly admire your restraint after being insulted like that by this buffon!”
You QingShan was unmoved, mildly replying, “You said yourself that he was nothing more than a buffoon, so arguing with him is just going to bring us down to his level. I don’t have the time for that.”
Cheng DongQing’s complexion shifted slightly, remembering how he had argued with You XiaoMo before. But it couldn’t really be considered arguing, and he quickly pushed it out of mind, agreeing with the other weakly, “Brother QingShan is very right.”
This was the first time he had received such a counterattack by an opponent and You XiaoMo didn’t know how to react..
After a moment, You XiaoMo looked at Ling Xiao with wide eyes.
Ling Xiao sighed softly. “Didn’t I tell you that you shouldn’t talk to people with ‘nostrils for eyes’? But you didn’t believe me. Don’t you know that talking with them can get you pregnant?”
“Pfft-“ You XiaoMo laughed so hard that his chest hurt.
He was wrong; this was the real final boss!
Around them, the expressions of those who heard this twisted. You’d get pregnant hearing someone talk, that truly was a new phrase. Most people were like You XiaoMo and couldn’t hold in their laughter. However, they were more reserved, turning to chuckle into their hands.
Hearing this sentence, You QingShan’s gaze turned cold enough to create ice. Yet he didn’t want to get into anything with them, because of what he had said before. This was the fabled, “digging oneself into a ditch.”
“No need to bother with them. It’s almost time. Let’s go.”
Ling Ming came out to help him the out of the awkward situation.
Cheng QingShan glanced at You XiaoMo darkly, his gaze baring murderous intent. Though he hadn’t acted, he had etched You XiaoMo and Ling Xiao’s appearance into his mind.
If You XiaoMo knew what he was thinking, he would tell the other that their appearances were fake.
Xiong Xiao and Qiao WuShuang looked at You XiaoMo and Ling Xiao, not knowing if they should cry or laugh. It was hard to believe they could come up with something like that. They had managed to completely destroy any chance of a good relationship with You QingShan today. None of the Vermilion Blood Clan’s people were forgiving.
Xiong Xiao was the first to let go of his reservations. In reality, he had long since began to look on the clansmen of the Vermilion Blood Clan with distaste. They were all arrogant like they had gotten ten thousand two five eights*. If it wasn’t for his position, he would’ve done something like that ages ago.
“You two really exceeded my expectations.” Xiong Xiao was exuberant, laughing freely. “But that was great!”
“It was nothing!” You XiaoMo said humbly, smiling so much that his eyes were slits.
Qiao WuShuang shook his head with a smile. After entering the Underground Palace, the Vermilion Blood Clan would certainly come after them, yet they could still smile like that.
As the time got closer, tension began to fill the air.
Qiao WuShuang seemed to see someone he knew and suddenly said, “I have something to do, so I’ll be taking my leave.”
After that, he began to walk towards a group of people on a distant mountain. They were powerhouses that had just appeared, radiating an intense aura.
Xiong Xiao said, “They’re from the Beast Transfiguration Guild.”
You XiaoMo’s eyes lit up. “Qiao-dage is from the Beast Transfiguration Guild?”
Xiong Xiao replied with surprise, “That’s right. You don’t know?” Qiao WuShuang was very famous in the Southern Continent. Logically, there shouldn’t be anyone who hadn’t heard of him.
You XiaoMo laughed and said, “Now I do.”
This really was an effortless find when they had no idea how to proceed. With their relationship with Qiao Wu Shuang now, it’d be easier for him to learn Beast Transfiguration.
Xiong Xiao glanced over at the Broken Valley, saying to them, “The entrance of the Underground Palace is about to appear. You guys be careful. I need to go and meet up with the others, so I’ll be taking my leave.”
You XiaoMo waved at him.
There were many people who had rushed here to the June Mountains. Apart from the a superclan like the Vermilion Blood Clan, there were quite a few other groups, all powerful sects of the Southern Continent and some infamous names, too. As time went on, these people all pressed towards the entrance of the Broken Valley.
You XiaoMo and Ling Xiao were rather far back, but they had an eighth of an hour, so they weren’t very worried.
After about ten minutes, an excited voice yelled out from the front, “The entrance to the Underground Palace has appeared!”
As the voice rung out, the crowd raced forwards with impatience.
The crowd swarmed into Broken Valley like ants. Even the weaker practitioners and mages ran towards their deaths as if bewitched.
The result was as expected. None of them lived and were all torn asunder by the sharp winds, falling at the entrance in gruesome pieces. The people’s minds finally cleared at seeing this, sorrowfully looking at the already dead people and afraid to reckless charge inside. All they could do was stand at the entrance looking and sighing.
As for the Vermilion Blood Clan and other groups, they darted inside under the guidance of their elites.
You XiaoMo hurriedly pulled Ling Xiao over. They hadn’t even entered the Broken Valley when they felt a cold, dark presence, as if their very souls were trembling.
After entering with the others, two towering cliffsides appeared in view, covered in moss that formed jagged shapes on the walls, looking foreboding. In front of them were the raging winds, emitting chilling howls like screaming ghosts.
You XiaoMo raised his head and looked up, seeing a small crack in the air as he had thought he would.
This crack had been here for many years and more and more Spatial Force drifted out from the crack, so only Emperor Level and above cultivators could endure it.
No one dared to approach the crack, avoiding it with their lives.
You XiaoMo could see the Vermilion Blood Clan at the front, their figures blurring. The others followed them like an osseous disease. They were all so careful, terrified of getting lost.
But this was understandable. Though everyone knew that Broken Valley was where the Underground Palace would appear, the valley was massive. From the outside, it might only seem two hundred meters wide, but it was thousands of meters deep and the dangerous winds raged everywhere. They couldn’t find it by walking through the entire thing. So the best method was to follow the Vermilion Blood Clan.
“Let’s go.” Ling Xiao grabbed his hand and pulled him forwards.
You XiaoMo followed at once. Though they already knew where the entrance was, they couldn’t show it or else the Vermilion Blood Clan would suspect them to be the perpetrators of the incident at the castellan.
They didn’t know this, but You Ming, near to the front, was indeed observing them.
When he saw You XiaoMo and Ling Xiao, they immediately caught his attention, especially that Ling Xiao. This man made him feel as if he could see through the other, yet as if he couldn’t at the same time, enveloped in a mirage and difficult to identify.
Though he wasn’t sure if it was them that killed Hu Yin and Hu Lu, he was already suspicious of the two.
As everyone advanced, a sharp scream suddenly rung out. Two seconds later, with the poof of a small explosion, the scream came to an abrupt halt.
Some poor guy had managed to get himself carried over to the crack by the winds. He had only just approached when the special force coming out of the crack killed him. The air was filled with blood, the winds carrying it further. Some people didn’t dodge in time and was splattered with a face full.
You XiaoMo hid behind Ling Xiao, using him to block the blood.
Of course, the rain of blood didn’t touch Ling Xiao, not even the corners of his clothes.
After a while, You XiaoMo was dragged back in front by Ling Xiao.
“My wife, it’s just a death. It’s not like you haven’t witnessed death before. This is just a small thing; there’s no need for fear.”
You XiaoMo rolled his eyes. “But it’s still disgusting.”
Human bodies were still fragile. Organs like the liver and guts had been blended into the rain of blood as well. If it really had splattered on his body, he would be sick for days.
Ling Xiao smiled. “You’ll get used to it.”
You XiaoMo replied, “I’d rather never get used to it.” That was because getting used to it meant that he might be met with even more similar situations.
That was when the crowd came to a halt.
It seemed that the entrance to the Underground Palace had been found. The powerful groups, including the Cang Alliance and Beast Transfiguration Guild, gathered around. The large group seemed to be confirming if this was the entrance to the Underground Palace or not together.
