Chapter 727 (Extra 14) : Meet Up
Translated by Jouissance of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
The negotiations eventually ended with You XiaoMo fleeing in a panic.
That Lycan was around Spiritual Realm in terms of cultivation level. On a lower level realm like Earth, he was certain to stand at the very top of the pyramid. If it wasn’t for You XiaoMo and Ling Xiao, he might really become the ruler of Earth.
As for the Li Family, they soon fell without the support of the Lycan.
A once impregnable fortress, the entire Li Family collapsed in two days with the other powerhouse families all leaving them. From then on, the capital would never see hide nor hair of the Li Family amongst their powerhouse families. Their forces were divided and conquered by the other families, seperated, even the high level mage of the Li Family wasn’t spared. Practically no one brought up the incident again.
To You XiaoMo, these were all inconsequential.
Ever since his identity had been exposed, the four members of the You Family did everything in their power to try and meet with him. He hadn’t prepared himself mentally yet, so he didn’t dare meet with them and thus kept dodging them.
They didn’t return to White Shark again and Johnson let them be. It wasn’t like they didn’t understand. However, what You XiaoMo wasn’t expecting, was that he was still caught, in the end.
“How… did you guys find me?” A little speechless, You XiaoMo looked at You Bo, who was refusing to let go of the door, taking up the doorway. You Lu stood behind him. He didn’t see Father and Mother You. Though You XiaoMo was puzzled as to how the two managed to find him, he still let out a breath of relief. At the very least he wouldn’t have to face all four of them at once. He definitely wouldn’t be able to handle that.
You Bo sneered. “Not telling.”
The corner of You XiaoMo’s mouth twitched. He looked to You Lu. You Lu was completely stoic and there was no chance of figuring out anything from his face. He should’ve realized sooner that neither of his brothers were easy to deal with, one a volcano, one an iceberg. He really hoped that one day that it would cause thermal expansion and contraction.
“Dear wife, why don’t you invite the guests inside?” Ling Xiao’s cheerful voice came from inside, blatantly trying to cause chaos.
As soon as the words were out, You XiaoMo noticed an immediate drop in temperature. It was summer, but it felt like winter had come, gooseflesh rising on his arms. He really wanted to rub his arms.
The explosive You Bo instantly scowled and said, “This is the first time I’ve ever heard of blood brothers being guests. You XiaoMo, you sure have grown bold after ten years. You’re trying to distance yourself from us now? Are you not planning to treat us as your family anymore?”
You Lu, hearing this, raised an eyebrow but was too late to stop him.
The awkwardness in You XiaoMo’s expression vanished. He said in a self-mocking tone, “The ones who wanted to distance themselves was you, no? I’m just a normal person. Didn’t you guys always consider me a burden? If it wasn’t for that accident ten years ago, then you’d probably be contemplating on how to disappear from my life right about now and go on to live happily as a family, no?”
Seeing the mockery on his face, You Bo’s heart clenched. Though he had already prepared himself for something like this but personally hearing it made him realize he wasn’t nearly as prepared as he had thought. You XiaoMo knew, as they had expected.
“XiaoMo, it’s not the way you think it is.” The silent You Lu calmly gazed at him, as emotionless as always.
However, You XiaoMo noticed a hint of sorrow in his eyes. He felt like he might be seeing things. In you XiaoMo’s eyes, You Lu was always so tall and strong, like their father. He was a powerful person, a man without any hint of weakness whatsoever.
“I don’t want to hear your explanations. I only believe in what I hear, what I’ve seen. If you’re just here to say this, then please leave. I don’t have the time!” You XiaoMo hardened his heart. He didn’t want to forgive them so easily. He took a step back and slammed the door shut.
Yet You Bo stopped him before he could. “Don’t think I don’t know that you have plenty of time. I can hear the game music coming from inside. If you don’t want me to come and bother you every day, then meet with our parents for a talk. They’ve missed you.”
You XiaoMo cursed under his breath. That damn Ling Xiao. He had turned the game off!
However, You Bo’s words did have him hesitating. You Bo was someone who meant what he said. If he didn’t agree then the other might really come and bother him every day. He couldn’t flee back to the TongTian Continent now; that would be cowardly!
“Alright, I agree.”
“I’ve booked a room at the Sky Sea Gardens. You had better come!” You Bo immediately said.
You XiaoMo clenched his fist internally. He had been played by You Bo again! The other had known he would agree, so he had planned everything, just waiting for You XiaoMo to jump into the trap. And he did!
After the two left, You XiaoMo returned to the bedroom of their suite with his head hanging. Ling Xiao was helping him beat levels with his controller, his actions becoming smoother and smoother. This guy was even more like a veteran gamer than You XiaoMo, a real 21st century young adult. He was just about to speak when the other spoke up.
“I already guessed how that would end.”
With the You Family.
Mother You, after finding out that You XiaoMo was willing to sit down and talk with them, was delighted. She immediately dragged her husband out shopping. She wanted to make sure she was as pretty as possible. Perhaps they’d forgive her upon seeing how beautiful she was. It had to be said that You XiaoMo’s habit of occasional stupidity might be from his mother.
Father You had no other choice but to sacrifice himself. Though he felt that his wife was being rather naive, anything was possible considering it was You XiaoMo.
The time they agreed on soon arrived. Night fell on the prosperous city, the streets filling with the energy and noise of city nightlife. The pure moon hung high in the sky and the Sky Sea Gardens soon came to its peak traffic. Every single person who entered or exited Sky Sea Gardens were people of prestige.
The You Family didn’t like this sort of bustling atmosphere, but the food there was decent. It would definitely satisfy Xiao Mo/their son.
When the time arrived, You XiaoMo and his husband Ling Xiao appeared at the main entrance to Sky Sea Gardens. Gazing upon the beautiful architecture, this was the first time he truly felt a sense of returning since coming to this realm. This was the big city, the atmosphere that was uniquely Earth. That world with cultivators everywhere had to be an illusion.
After basking in the moment for a while, You XiaoMo led Ling Xiao inside, but one of the employees who had noticed them for a while, blocked their way.
