Bai Lie had been eagerly waiting, and finally, when the moonlight fell into the third eaves.
In the void outside the pavilion, a voice came.
“Bai Lie, I’m here!”
A beautiful and charming sound, enough to intoxicate others..
Bai Lie was overjoyed and came directly to the entrance to greet her. All the Young Supremes got up one after another, their eyes lit up.
Such a beautiful woman, no matter how many times they see her, they feel that it’s not enough. No wonder even an Iron-Blooded man like Bai Lie became addicted to her.
“Yin Mei, the Holy Maiden of the Nine-Tailed Celestial Fox Family…”
Ye Ling was also amazed as he watched. Yin Mei had obviously dressed up seriously today and even put on a little make-up, which made him a little envious of Bai Lie.
“Yin Mei, you’re here?”
Bai Lie smiled towards the entrance, with a fascinated look on his face.
The woman in a red dress smiled softly.
Stepping out of the shadows, it seemed as if flowers were blooming behind her with every step.
Her face was enchanting.
She was beautiful, beautiful even when compared to the Holy Maidens that came before her.
Rather she had the beauty of a Demon Fox, able to enchant every being with her charms.
She walked out of the shadows and descended on the void, her beauty was almost surreal, and her face was as white as jade.
A pair of curved eyebrows and ruby-red eyes that glowed brightly…
With a straight nose, thin red lips,and a smile highlighting her shining teeth, her silky hair swayed as she moved.
In the night, the moonlight was hazy.
She has a beautiful figure, like an immortal fairy that charms all living beings. Her skin is lustrous and glistened perfectly under the night sky as she walked towards the pavilion.
Obviously, Yin Mei dressed up just for today, and she was so much more beautiful than all the other times Bai Lie had ever seen her.
He was stunned and quickly reacted with heartfelt admiration.
“Yin Mei, you look beautiful!”
Yin Mei gave him an embarrassed look, and said, “You’re so silly.”
These words almost made Bai Lie’s bones crumble as his soul seemed to tremble.
But soon, he soon noticed all the Young Supremes in the pavilion, and even his virtuous brother, Ye Ling, who all wore a slightly dazed expression. Notice this, his face immediately showed a hint of displeasure and discomfort.
After all, Yin Mei had specially dressed up in order to see him. How could he let other men stare at her like that?
Although Bai Lie had a heroic personality, he was a man who possessed strong, possessive traits.
He snorted coldly to show his dissatisfaction.
When the Young Supreme in the pavilion heard his voice, they reacted quickly and hurriedly retracted their gaze with a hint of embarrassment on their faces.
Ye Ling also slowly withdrew his gaze, pretending to be calm and toasted for a drink, and said, “Brother Bai Lie is really lucky!”
If it was some other time, Bai Lie would’ve been very happy to hear this, but when he thinks of Ye Ling’s personality, he felt something was wrong just now.
“Yin Mei, you came at the right time. I was just talking about you.”
But Bai Lie didn’t care, and hurriedly welcomed Yin Mei with a smile.
At the same time, he ordered the people in the pavilion to leave the banquet.
Yin Mei finally took the initiative to look for him for once, and she was so elegantly dressed that he was overjoyed. His face was red, and the character ‘King’ on his forehead was shining with strange brilliance.
Bai Lie felt something wonderful would happen tonight, and he wondered whether he could receive a kiss tonight.
After all, it’s nighttime, and anything could happen after drinking.
Thinking about it made him a little excited.
“I’ve kept you waiting, there’s been a lot going on in the sect lately, Brother Gu has been announced as the heir and the ceremony is just around the corner.”
“He left the mountain gate today; otherwise, I would not have dared to come out casually.” Yin Mei smiled and said as she took her seat.
However, she was faintly separated from everyone by a distance, which didn’t displease Bai Lie at all. In fact, he was rather happy.
At this moment, he even hoped that everyone would leave, so only he and Yin Mei could be left alone.
The banquet started again.
Yin Mei mingled with everyone, naturally and generously, but still very decently.
However, Bai Lie’s complexion was a little unpleasant, especially when he noticed the secret glances some Young Supremes sent towards her.
Tonight, Yin Mei had truly brought out her charm and beauty, so how could she not attract people’s attention?
Soon all the Young Supremes saw Bie Lie’s expression, and they knew very well what it meant, leaving one after another.
If Bai Lie is offended by this, then the gain will not be worth the loss.
In the pavilion, only Ye Ling, Yin Mei, and Bai Lie were left.
“I would like a toast to the Holy Maiden. It is rare to find someone like the Holy Maiden who does not follow the crowd and dares to stand up to Gu Changge.”
“Furthermore, you are not afraid of Gu Changge even when he can cover the Heavenly Dao Immortal Palace with one hand. That alone fills this younger brother with admiration!”
Ye Ling said with a smile, raising the wine glass made of white jade in his hand, and bowing to Yin Mei from a distance.
He was telling the truth.
When he heard what had transpired in the Myriad Dao Banquet, he had a good impression of Yin Mei, a woman with unyielding integrity.
‘Now that I have met her a few times, I was surprised by her appearance tonight’
‘Brother Bai Lie is really blessed.’
The Holy Maiden of the Nine-Tailed Celestial Fox Family, such an identity, is rarely matched by anyone.
Thinking about this, Ye Ling drank all the wine in his glass in one sip, showing his heroism.
“Brother Ye Ling is very polite.”
Hearing this compliment, Yin Mei seemed to be happy too, smiled, and offered a glass to him with respect.
“I’ve also heard much about brother Ye Ling from recent rumours. You not only fought against Ye Langtian, who is known as the reincarnation of the Ancient Emperor, but you also challenged Senior Brother Gu. This level of bravery is truly astounding and worthy of admiration.”
“Despite knowing the strength of Senior Brother Gu, you dared to do this. Few people in the younger generation can match him.”
She pursed her mouth and smiled, her eyes curled, and she looked very happy, and she began to talk with Ye Ling from a distance.
“No, no… the Holy Maiden praises me too much. There is nothing to fear. Although Gu Changge is strong, there are still many people who are not afraid of him.” Ye Ling said this as he laughed at his words.
He was very happy with this flattery, and the person who said it was none other than his elder brother’s fiancée.
This made him feel strange.
But Ye Ling still concealed it well.
Soon, the two of them talked like there was no one else around them, Yin Mei smiled from time to time, and her eyes twinkled, making her more beautiful and charming.
Although Ye Ling’s face was ordinary, he had an aura of confidence, unlike normal people.
This scene happened in front of Bai Lie’s eyes, making him lose face as though he were a mere outsider between the two.
Normally, Yin Mei was very reserved towards him, and her attitude was not as natural and casual as it is now.
But now while talking to Ye Ling, she laughed from time to time and looked very happy.
Bai Lie’s expression became more and more unsightly, and he faintly felt that Ye Ling, his virtuous brother who was usually pleasing to the eye, had now become an eyesore.
Bai Lie’s expression was slightly dark, and he didn’t directly address him as one would a virtuous brother. This time, he called out Ye Ling’s full name.
“Brother Bai Lie…”
Ye Ling also suddenly reacted with an awkward expression as he was indeed a bit distracted just now.
He focused on talking with Yin Mei and left Bai Lie alone.
However, he still didn’t care about it. He felt that Bai Lie was too narrow-minded. He was just talking to Yin Mei, and there was still quite the distance between them, so why did he care?
Ye Ling then glanced outside, smiled and got up to leave, “This Little Brother won’t bother you anymore; it’s getting late and it’s time for me to rest.”
He also knew that Bai Lie might be a little angry now.
So, he was naturally going to leave first to let Bai Lie calm down. He always had good luck with women, so Yin Mei saying a few words to him was nothing unusual.
Bai Lie made too much fuss.
Bai Lie’s complexion was very unpleasant, what Ye Ling did today was indeed somewhat unreasonable in his opinion.
Normally, he takes good care of Ye Ling and provided him with a lot of cultivation resources, but now in front of him, he actually wanted to “hook up” with his fiancée?
What is this?
Bai Lie didn’t say much, but his expression was a bit gloomy.
At this time, Ye Ling also said goodbye to Yin Mei and left the pavilion.
At any rate, the place where he currently resides is not far from here.
For a time, only Bai Lie and Yin Mei were left in the pavilion.
Bai Lie was keeping a distance from Yin Mei, his face very ugly as he was about to question her for what she had done just now.
At this time, the smile on Yin Mei’s face also disappeared. When she spoke, she did so indifferently, “Ye Ling is not someone who he seems to be, so stay away from him in the future.”
This quick change of face made Bai Lie a little shocked, even dumbfounded.
Just moments ago, she was talking and laughing with Ye Ling, and now she was back to her previous indifferent and detached look.
This shocked Bai Lie and left him speechless for a while.
But soon, he understood the meaning behind Yin Mei’s words and his eyes widened slightly.
‘Yin Mei’s attitude just now was actually a test for Ye Ling?’
At this time, Yin Mei pouted and lightly said, “What’s on your mind? How did you get to this point exactly?”
“Since the first day we met, Ye Ling had been staring at me with impure eyes, and I am uncertain of his thoughts.”
“It’s just that you didn’t notice it. If I had told you directly at that time, you might’ve suspected that I wanted to separate you two brothers, so did you see the real him today?”
After speaking, she looked at Bai Lie, frowning, looking disappointedly at him.
Bai Lie was dumbfounded.
After listening to these explanations, combined with Yin Mei’s different behaviour today from usual, Bai Lie soon became stunned.
He did not doubt Yin Mei’s words.
There was no need to be suspicious.
After all, Ye Ling’s behaviour just now was indeed quite excessive.
Bai Lie thought about it carefully.
Her actual purpose was to help him see Ye Ling’s true character.
Bai Lie was a little moved by this, but he didn’t expect that Yin Mei would think about him so much in secret.
He was suspicious of Yin Mei just now.
This made Bai Lie feel guilty, but he was touched by her actions once more.
“Yin Mei, you truly have me in your heart. I was wrong to blame you. It turned out that you were thinking of me.”
Bai Lie said with emotion, but later, his expression also became cold, “I have always understood Ye Ling’s temperament, but I didn’t expect him to reach this level. He even dares to have such thoughts about you…”
He knew Ye Ling’s thought to hit on Yue Mingkong, the Fourth Princess of the Supreme Immortal Dynasty.
Combined with what he saw today, his expression was even fiercer, and he directly viewed Ye Ling to be the same as Gu Changge.
“Hmph, I knew that Ye Ling was only respectful to me on the surface, all the while hiding his true heart.”
“He is no different from Gu Changge!”
Bai Lie said coldly, already considering how to solve the matter of Ye Ling.
At this moment, he failed to notice a touch of mockery flashed in Yin Mei’s eyes, though it was fleeting and was well hidden.
Naturally, everything she did tonight was ordered by Gu Changge.
Yin Mei just did what she was ordered to do.
And all this, just as Gu Changge said, she followed his orders without any deviation. Yin Mei’s heart quivered as she began to fear him even more.
Gu Changge’s control over people’s hearts is simply terrible.
She couldn’t think that all of this would be so simple.
Bai Lie and Ye Ling had a deep brotherhood for several years, and it was broken by Gu Changge so easily.
Meanwhile, she had only met and talked to Bai Lie a few times.
The rest of tonight’s events were not planned, so she couldn’t care less about the outcome.
However, Yin Mei also knows that part of the reason that this plan worked is that she is the Holy Maiden of the Nine-Tailed Celestial Fox Family.
Of course, the most important factor is that Gu Changge’s control over Bai Lie and Ye Ling’s temperament is so precise that she can’t help but shiver.
Although Gu Changge never showed up from the beginning to the end, he had everything under control.
Bai Lie and Ye Ling probably didn’t even know that Gu Changge was the puppet master of all this in secret.
‘Young Master Gu is too scary!’
Though she would never admit it, Yin Mei was confident that the decision she made was correct. Otherwise, she couldn’t even imagine what sort of death she would have suffered.
“Yin Mei, it is now late at night, do you want to go back to the mountain gate?”
At this time, Bai Lie looked over at Yin Mei with a hint of expectation and asked.
‘After all, it’s too late at night for Yin Mei to return to the mountain gate, right?;
Yin Mei heard that, and the expression on her face went back to her natural expression with seemingly no abnormality. She shook her head and smiled gently, “I won’t go back tonight. I have a small courtyard in this Ancient City where I can rest.”
Bai Lie was a little disappointed, but he couldn’t force it.
After that, Yin Mei also stayed for a while and then left.
But before leaving, her eyes flashed slightly, and a cheery voice came, saying, “But it’s not that far from here, it’s three hundred miles to the east.”
“Three hundred miles to the east…”
These words made Bai Lie’s eyes burst into flames, and he felt a little joy in his heart.
Could this be Yin Mei’s suggestion to him?
But now is not the time to be excited about this, his face sank and he waved his hand.
In the void behind him, a terrible figure appeared, with an extremely strong aura. It was his secret protector, an Expert from the White Tiger Clan.
At the same time, Bai Lie’s usual followers all appeared from below the pavilion. There were a lot of them, each one extremely powerful, the weakest had a Cultivation Base that was already in the Sacred Realm.
“Go and catch Ye Ling for me. That damned guy, how dare he treat me like this.” Bai Lie said with a gloomy expression.
“Yes, Young Master!”
Soon, along with the protector, everyone rushed out of the pavilion and headed to where Ye Ling was.
Bai Lie felt a little relieved about this.
He knew that Ye Ling had a lot of methods, so he sent his protector who was sure to apprehend and bring Ye Ling back to him.
“What Yin Mei said before she left, did it imply something for me?”
At this moment, Bai Lie couldn’t help but show a smile on his face. With that, he got up and left for the place that Yin Mei mentioned…
