Chapter 531: Amazing MaoQiu
Translated by Jouissance of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
This place was such a ripoff!
You XiaoMo definitely had spirit gems on him; as a transcendent level mage, he wouldn’t be poor. Never mind twenty-one thousand spirit gems, twenty million wasn’t even a problem for him. However, he refused to be scammed like this.
“Where’s your boss!?” You XiaoMo’s expression chilled, saying demandingly.
The man’s expression finally shifted away from that false kindness, revealing a sliver of mockery. “Even if I do get the boss, I’ll tell you honestly, it was her who told us to do this. It’s better that you watch yourselves.”
You XiaoMo really didn’t understand. When had they ever offended this woman? It was the first time they had ever met; it wasn’t possible that they would’ve met before now.
“You dare take that tone? Your boss doesn’t think that she can scam people as she wants just because she’s the boss of a tavern, does she?” The corner of MaoQiu’s lips quirked up, her alluring eyes sharpening, making her vulpine beauty even more attractive.
The man was stunned for a moment, mind drifting before he returned to the present and hollered, “So what if that’s true? This is our territory, so what we say goes. If you don’t pay, don’t even think of walking out of Ziran City.”
Ling Xiao blew on the hot tea in his cup and took a sip, looking at the server coldly. “Then try us. Let’s see if we can walk out of Ziran City or not.”
The server was just a mid-level demon beast. Ling Xiao released just a sliver of his aura and the other couldn’t take it anymore, legs giving out under him as he collapsed.
“You sure are daring to speak like that!”
It was then that the door to the elegant room was opened from the outside, and a white figure walked in. It was the boss of the tavern. Who knows how long she had been standing there?
The boss’ demeanor was no longer as clean and noble as it was before, but with a confidence and pride like a goddess of victory, standing high up above everyone else.
Ling Xiao looked at her coldly. His lips quirked into a curve. “No matter how daring I am, it’s nothing on your scam of a shop. Just one meal costs twenty-one thousand spirit gems. Aren’t you afraid it’ll affect your business if people hear about this?”
The owner chuckled softly, her orchid fingers playing with the dark locks of hair near her ear. She looked at Ling Xiao with a curl of interest on her lips, and her dignified demeanor suddenly became very suggestive. Though she couldn’t compare to a natural fox like MaoQiu, the sudden charm made people unable to remove their gaze. For example, their server had his eyes practically glued to her.
“So long as I deny it, then, gentleman, do you think they’ll believe me or outsiders like you?” The owner smiled confidently.
This was implying that she was dead set on scamming them.
No matter how dumb You XiaoMo was, he would still be able to tell what was going on here. This tavern owner who looked pure and dignified was actually very coquettish, and had her eyes on Ling Xiao. That was why she was making things difficult for them. You XiaoMo couldn’t help but glare at Ling Xiao. He was too handsome for his own good!
“Tavern owner, I suggest you get rid of that repulsive expression you’re wearing, or else you’ll regret it.” MaoQiu said this with a smile. It was very rare that she would be so nice to such an annoying person and issue to them such a warning. She really was too nice.
“Regret?” The owner looked like she had heard something unbelievable, suddenly beginning laugh uproariously, her laughter grating. Their server also began to laugh.
The owner stopped laughing abruptly, looking at MaoQiu with a chilling gaze. “That’s the first time someone has ever said something like that to me. How interesting. That word doesn’t exist in my dictionary; the people who will be regretting their actions are you, not me.”
“Just wait; you don’t know who you’ve messed with.” The sucker up server, with the owner to back him up, often acted bigger than he was, arrogant and unafraid.
“Alright then. We’ll just wait for you to make us regret. Then, I guess we don’t need to pay anymore,” You XiaoMo said as he began to walk out. This was the first time he had ever dined and dashed, and it was an unpleasant experience.
“Don’t even think of leaving!”
Four brutes swarmed inside, blocking the exit.
Against these small fries, You XiaoMo could knock them all off their asses with a single kick. Right now, he was in a bad mood, and naturally wouldn’t show any mercy.
You XiaoMo raised a foot and took aim at the first brute that charged towards them, kicking out. The other didn’t even have a chance to dodge, his body flying backwards into the three behind him. The group was immediately bowled over, screams resounding along with the cracking of bones. He had dealt with all four in one kick.
The owner’s expression chilled, but she didn’t panic. “You can’t escape. Hei Xiong is arriving soon. He won’t let you go so easily.”
“Who’s Hei Xiong?” You XiaoMo raised an eyebrow. Seemed like this person was someone big.
The server who had went to cower behind the owner’s back peeked his head out, saying in a prideful tone, “Hei Xiong is the master of Ziran City. He’s the strongest in the entirety of Ziran City and he’s the owner’s backer. None of you will be able to escape.”
The owner straightened her back, her lips curling up slightly.
Though Hei Xiong was ugly, he was truly strong, and Hei Xiong liked her. Since she enjoyed running taverns, Hei Xiong helped her open this one.
She didn’t need to send anyone for Hei Xiong to have received the news of what just occurred. He was almost definitely on his way now.
Ling Xiao stood after finishing his tea. His form was tall and slender, seeming to shock the two. The owner’s eyes seemed to brighten.
“Gentleman, you know that it doesn’t have to come to this. So long as you agree to my terms, I can promise, I won’t let Hei Xiong harm your companions.” The owner’s eyes were practically glued to Ling Xiao, her arousal clear as day in her expression. She had never ever seen a man so handsome. Compared to him, Hei Xiong was like cow shit on the street.
You XiaoMo realized a truth of the world.
Going from being sexual to abstinence was very difficult, but the opposite was all too easy. You really couldn’t judge a book by its cover. He regretted choosing this tavern.
“Don’t even think about it!” You XiaoMo couldn’t help but yell. She already had this Hei Xiong yet she still was trying to find other men. Even if she wasn’t being sated, she couldn’t hit on his man. There were many others in Ziran city!.
The owner’s expression twisted, glaring at him with almond shaped eyes. “He hasn’t even said anything, what are you cutting in for? Fuck off.”
You XiaoMo was enraged. “He’s my partner, why can’t I cut in? You fuck off, what’s your fucking problem!?”
The owner was surprised.
She had thought that vulpine woman was the one with the man. She hadn’t thought it was the young man. As for homosexuality, it wasn’t uncommon in Ziran City, so there was nothing to be too shocked about.
“Master, please calm down!” MaoQiu comforted him, “This sort of trash that’s good at being a slut isn’t worth getting angry at. Don’t damage your health by getting angry at her.”
With that, the entire room went silent.
You XiaoMo stared. This was MaoQiu? His impression of MaoQiu was a very composed beauty. Today was the first time he had heard her curse. He really was learning something new every day.
MaoQiu didn’t seem to have any thoughts about it and continued. “Master, if you’re still wound up about this, I’ll teach her a lesson for you. Let’s see if she still dares covet the Boss’ beauty.”
You XiaoMo’s jaw dropped.
MaoQiu assumed that meant he agreed, looking towards the owner with malicious intent.
The owner had long since gotten so angry that her entire face had twisted. “You bitch! I dare you to say that again! I’ll rip up your mouth!” A feigned purity and dignity always crumbled quickly. Where was her elegant beauty now?
However, it wasn’t hard to guess how her personality had developed into this.
Demon cats had to rely on powerhouses to survive, but since they were all very good looking, baring alluring beauty no matter male or female, there were always plenty of elites fighting over them. Like the owner.
The owner was the number one beauty of the demon cat clan. Originally, three elites were fighting over her, all from Ziran City. In the end, Hei Xiong was the one who won, so everyone in Ziran City knew that a certain owner of a certain tavern was Hei Xiong’s woman. Hei Xiong really treasured this woman, and gave her everything she asked for. Thus, no one dared get on her bad side.
With a very powerful man’s backing, if the owner couldn’t be so confident, then who could?
MaoQiu’s figure flashed, instantly appearing in front of the cat demon, raising her hand and landing a harsh slap at the other’s beautiful face. The sound of the slap was very loud and clear, hard enough to send the owner’s head to the side.
The owner clutched her swollen face, eyes wide as saucers and looking at MaoQiu in disbelief. She was so enraged, her lips were shaking. “You bitch, how dare you…”
She hadn’t even finished speaking when MaoQiu slapped her across her other cheek before slapping her over ten times in succession, left and right, until her face was swollen like a bun.
The owner collapsed onto the ground, dizzy, clutching her swollen face with both hands. Her eyes practically spat fire as she glared at MaoQiu, her voice sharp and grating. “You bitch…”
MaoQiu kicked her.
The owner wasn’t able to dodge it, her forehead knocking against the floor and going red.
MaoQiu laughed lightly. “If you say the word bitch again, I’ll tear off your skin. I’m missing a set of skin, anyways.”
The owner was kneeling on the ground, panting. She had never suffered such humiliation, trembling in anger. Though she wanted to curse and let out her anger a little, she was afraid the other would really kill her. Her beautiful eyes glared daggers at MaoQiu.
“What are you looking at? Do you want me to pluck your eyes out, too?” MaoQiu raised an eyebrow.
The owner didn’t dare look at her again.
You XiaoMo watched on in shock. This was a true goddess!
He had really learned something new today. So MaoQiu could be so cool, too! Against an arrogant woman like the owner, you could only face her with the same venom.
MaoQiu returned to them, smiling softly.
The server was already dumb with fright. Usually, when people heard Hei Xiong’s name they’d be terrified. Yet these people actually dared to attack the owner. He didn’t dare speak out of turn again either.
“Let’s go!” Ling Xiao got up, patting the dust off his robes. He didn’t even spare the owner a look. He might’ve if she actually had a brain, but she didn’t.
You XiaoMo nodded. He didn’t want to waste his time on this dumbass woman. It was better if they just left Ziran City as soon as possible. He immediately had Ling Xiao wear his silver mask in case his face attracted anymore nutcases.
That was when the door was opened once again.
A heavy-built man with a rather ugly face walked in, easily blocking the door with his immense form. The man roared as he came in. “Who dares bully Hei Xiong’s little darling?”
“Ahhh…” Seeing her backer finally here, the owner didn’t try to repress herself anymore, beginning to wail, her swollen face twisting.
“My darling, who did this to you?” Seeing the owner on the ground, Hei Xiong’s expression twisted, immediately walking over and helping her up gently, like she might break, heart aching.
The owner’s face was terrifying, glaring poisonously at You XiaoMo and company. No matter how enraptured she had been with Ling Xiao, by now, there would be nothing but hate. She would never let go of this hatred.
“Hei Xiong-ge, you have to kill them for me.”
Hei Xiong’s cold gaze swept over You XiaoMo and company landing on the all-too-handsome Ling Xiao. Killing intent flashed through his eyes and he said in a icy tone, “Will you finish yourselves off, or do you want me to do it personally?”
