1380 Only the Blind Would Be Interested in You!
"She said it?" Zhang Xuan cowered his neck back as a prickling sensation broke out all over his scalp.
He hurriedly drove his zhenqi furiously, ready to escape immediately should the other party charge at him.
This future brother-in-law of his could be rather unreasonable at times, and Zhang Xuan had no intention of getting pummeled for no good reason either. Naturally, the wisest course of action was to flee first and return to communicate only after the latter had calmed down.
"Indeed!" Luo Xuanqing waved his hand in irritation.
Seeing that Luo Xuanqing didn't make a move on him, Zhang Xuan hesitated for a brief moment before asking warily, "Then... who is he?"
"I don't exactly know who it is, but it's a person that she met in the period that she left home. According to her, he's a master teacher who has a heart vast enough to embrace the entire world, never hesitating to help those who are in need. Despite his low cultivation, his character is nothing short of perfection. On top of that, his mastery in pill forging is unrivaled in the world, unprecedented even in history…"
The more he spoke, the more furious Luo Xuanqing became. In the end, he swung his sleeves backward angrily as he exclaimed, "But she refused to reveal his name! So, I have no idea who he is either."
"She didn't reveal his name?" Zhang Xuan heaved a sigh of relief.
At the same time, he couldn't help but feel deeply touched inside. He would have never thought that he would appear to be so perfect in Luo Ruoxin's heart. As expected of his soulmate, she was able to discover the goodness in him.
Harboring such thoughts in mind, Zhang Xuan turned to look at Luo Xuanqing once more and said, "Since the little princess has described that person to be so perfect, what else do you have to worry about?"
It was incomprehensible to him why this future brother-in-law would reject such a perfect man. It would be impossible to find another person as outstanding as that out there in the world!
If Luo Xuanqing was going to reject such a guy, just who in the world could catch his eye then?
"Perfect? Hmph! The more she says such words, the more apparent that she has been scammed by that fellow... How can there be any perfect man in the world other than me?" Luo Xuanqing waved his hand indignantly.
"Cough cough!" Zhang Xuan's eyebrows twitched upon hearing those words, and he nearly choked to death on his saliva.
He didn't think that this future brother-in-law of his would be so narcissistic...
A person who wreaked havoc across all halls in the Sanctum of Sages, becoming a figure whom the entire school has picked up their pitchforks against... Is that your definition of perfect? Do you really have no idea what other people think of you?
With such thoughts in mind, Zhang Xuan couldn't help but shake his head and say, "When it comes to perfection, I'm afraid that you still have much to work on. Perhaps only I have come the closest to it…"
"You?" Those words immediately induced Luo Xuanqing to send a disdainful glance over. "Stop daydreaming over here! I admit, you do possess incredible means, commanding formidable capability in formation, beast taming, and dealing with lightning tribulations. However, with your eccentricity and lack of common sense dealing with situations, your lack of thought before speaking, and your pathetically weak social awareness, I really have no idea how you can the cheek to call yourself perfect! In fact, I doubt whether there would ever be a girl in the world who would be interested in you. Even if there is one, she must most definitely be blind!"
Even though he had only known this young man for roughly twenty days, he had already gained a deep understanding of the other party from the time they had spent together. Poor social awareness, lack of sensitivity to his surroundings, often choking others with his words, and not to mention, a complete lack of response that an ordinary man should have when facing the ladies!
This had led Luo Xuanqing to deeply suspect if the young man had some kind of weird interests. If anyone could fall in love with such a person, she must be blind!
"You…" Black lines streaked across Zhang Xuan's face. "Speak for yourself! Aren't you very much single? Given your hot-tempered personality, it would take a miracle for any girl to be interested in you!"
I only speak to you politely out of respect for you as my future brother-in-law, but how can you say that there's no one in the world who would like me and even claim that your own younger sister is blind...
The one who is blind is you!
The same bloodline, the same clan, and the same parents; how could there be such a huge difference between the both of them?
It is no wonder why you are still single despite already treading into your thirties!
"You... Bullshit! It's not that I can't find a girlfriend but that those who get close to me are usually due to my identity as the Young Master of the Luo Clan!" Luo Xuanqing bellowed with eyes bulging in agitation.
"Stop finding excuses for yourself! There's just no one who is interested in you as a person, that's all there is to it!" Zhang Xuan harrumphed.
"You…" So furious that his lips were quivering non-stop, Luo Xuanqing was on the verge of erupting.
Just like that, the two men glared at one another angrily with a fiery inferno blazing in their eyes, seemingly wanting to tear the other party apart.
Some time later, Zhang Xuan waved his hands and harrumphed coldly, "To tell you the truth, I have a girlfriend, and my girlfriend loves me a lot."
"Hah hah." Luo Xuanqing.
"What I'm saying is true! My girlfriend is really pretty, and she's strong at that." Zhang Xuan continued.
"Hah hah." Luo Xuanqing.
"Are you doubting me? Just think about it, how can someone as outstanding as me possibly not have a girlfriend?" Black lines were starting to emerge on Zhang Xuan's forehead.
"Hah hah." Luo Xuanqing.
"..." Zhang Xuan.
A while later...
"To tell you the truth, I have a girlfriend too." Luo Xuanqing said.
"Hah hah." Zhang Xuan.
"She's extremely pretty, and she possesses great strength on top of that." Luo Xuanqing said.
"Hah hah." Zhang Xuan.
"You…" Luo Xuanqing gritted his teeth furiously.
Just like that, the duo glared at one another furiously once more.
The standstill continued for quite a while before Luo Xuanqing finally waved his hand and said, "I won't waste my breath with you anymore. Anyway, help me look into the person whom my younger sister likes."
This was the matter which he wanted to entrust to Zhang Xuan.
"You want me to help you look into the matter?" Zhang Xuan frowned. "As the Young Master of the Luo Clan, you possess a much wider information network than I do. Why would you want to go through me instead?"
Even though Luo Xuanqing appeared to be extremely reckless, often acting without much thought, through the matter with the Netherworld Azure Dragon Beast, Zhang Xuan knew that that was only how he appeared on the exterior. In truth, he was a rather meticulous person on the inside.
"I have already promised my younger sister not to investigate that man. However, it can't really be helped if you were to investigate the matter and unwittingly speak of it before me, and I accidentally overhear that man's background, right?" Luo Xuanqing said.
It was not that he didn't want to look into this matter himself but that his younger sister had pleaded with him not to disturb the man whom she loved. He was unwilling to accept her request initially, but looking into her sorrowful eyes, he still eventually succumbed to her request.
But still, he couldn't let this matter go just like that. If he were to go through another person instead, that wouldn't be considered as breaking his promise, right?
"This…" Zhang Xuan fell into deep contemplation.
Most likely, Ruoxin knew that it would be impossible for him to stand against Luo Xuanqing and the entire Luo Clan with his current strength, so she chose to keep his identity hidden so as to prevent him from being harassed and hurt.
"Hai!" Zhang Xuan sighed deeply.
He felt like he really owed the other party far too much.
"Alright, I'll help you find the other party. However, do you have any clues?" Zhang Xuan hesitated for a moment before nodding.
By agreeing to the other party, he would be able to forge a long-term connection with Luo Xuanqing, possibly allowing him to enquire into Luo Ruoxin's current situation at any moment. At the same time, he would also be able to control the flow of information that got to Luo Xuanqing, thus placing him in a safer position.
"The clues are as I have told you before. The person she likes is a master teacher, and it seems like he's of good personality and his looks are fairly decent too... As for where she has been to during that period of time, I'm not too sure yet. I'll get to you if I manage to hear anything about that." Luo Xuanqing paused for a moment before saying.
His younger sister had concealed herself so well that there was completely no news about her during the period of time she left home. As such, not even he was aware of her whereabouts then.
Perhaps, there might someone in the clan who was aware of the matter, but he would have to ask around.
"Alright. I'll be waiting for your news then." Seeing that Luo Xuanqing didn't know much about the matter, Zhang Xuan heaved a sigh of relief.
This meant that there was still some time for him to bring up his cultivation before his relationship with Ruoxin got out.
He wasn't ready to appear before the Luo Clan as Ruoxin's boyfriend yet. At the very least, he would have to clear the 8-star master teacher examination and officially become the sanctum head before then.
Only then would he be qualified to stand beside Luo Ruoxin and stand against the will of the two Sage Clans.
"I have just achieved a breakthrough, so I need some time to reinforce my cultivation. Here is the pinnacle spirit stone I have promised you a while back." Luo Xuanqing flicked his hand and passed a jade container over.
It seemed like he had met his clan members earlier and received the pinnacle spirit stone form them.
"Thank you." As this was what they had agreed on earlier, Zhang Xuan didn't hesitate to take it.
As soon as he placed his hand on the jade container, he immediately felt a pure surge of spiritual energy flowing into his meridians, and the Heaven's Path zhenqi in his body began to tremble in excitement.
As expected of a pinnacle spirit stone! It could induce such a reaction in him even without opening the jade container. There was truly a vast difference between it and concentrated high-tier spirit stones.
"I'll find you after reinforcing my cultivation…" After saying those words, Luo Xuanqing activated a formation plate before sitting down to cultivate.
Since he had survived his lightning tribulation, it meant that he had already successfully achieved a breakthrough to Dimension Sundering realm.
Seeing that Luo Xuanqing had already made preparation measures, Zhang Xuan decisively left the area and returned in the direction where he came from.
Returning back to his living quarters, he was just about to use his pinnacle spirit stones to replenish his zhenqi when he saw Sun Qiang rushing over.
"Young Master, someone has been waiting for you here for quite a few days."
"Waiting for me?" Zhang Xuan frowned.
He had been too busy ever since he enrolled into the Sanctum of Sages such that he hadn't even returned to his residence for quite some day already, let alone getting to know others here... Just in the world was looking for him?
Not to mention, to be so determined as to wait day after day for him?
"That's right." Sun Qiang nodded.
"Who is it? From what power?" Zhang Xuan asked.
"He's a young man in his twenties. I'm not too sure what power he's from, but he did mention his name." At this point, Sun Qiang pondered for a moment. "I think his name... Feng Ziyi!"
Feng Ziyi? Isn't that Yang shi's real student?
'Gedeng!', Zhang Xuan's heart skipped a beat.
