Chapter 1859: The Human Heart Is Unpredictable
The Fourteenth Prince had his arms at his back, his eyes were clear and handsome-looking, his bearing dignified yet he did not appear domineering at all, instead, he wore a spring-like smile on his face.
As he walked to the side of Crone Qushan, the Fourteenth Prince folded his hands together in salutation, as he said politely. “Greetings, Elder Qushan.”
With Crone Qushan and the Fourteenth Prince standing before them, the other cultivators who had been eyeing the cultivation resources of the Nine Carols Star all came forward, as they protested against the Tianchu Civilization.
“Tianchu Civilization to monopolize the Nine Carols Star, and not permitting outsiders to enter, that means that the planet has some amazing opportunities on it.”
“All of us are also seeking the path, Fairy, you should not turn us away.”
“Such a huge planet definitely has endless resources, the Tianchu Civilization isn’t afraid of gorging themselves to death?”
Even Shiqing Shenzi and the Dizu Crown Prince fell silent, as a mysterious glint appeared in their eyes.
While both of them were after the affection of Fairy Tianchu, they also had other goals. From the beginning, they had placed their cultivation first. They could see that within a short time of coming to Kunlun Realm, Fairy Tianchu’s cultivation had progressed extremely quickly, and had reached an incredible level.
If they were told it had nothing to do with the Nine Carols Star, they would definitely not buy it.
If they could enter the Nine Carols Star, perhaps not only they could encounter a supreme opportunity, they may also take a beauty home.
Everyone was being obviously calculating, as they wanted to seize all of the benefits.
“I dare anyone to break into the Nine Carols Star today?.”
The Butcher pulled out his cleaver and held it in his hand as a massive wind force was immediately formed. To be precise, that was no wind, but instead a series of sharp sword Qi.
The Butcher’s cultivation was above the Fool’s.
A simple ‘blade draw’ was enough to cause the space to tremble slightly.
Crone Qushan only spat out a ‘hmph’, yet in the ears of the cultivator’s on the island, it was like a thunderclap, and countless were dazed and their heads raking with pain.
The Butcher, who was attacked, staggered about a dozen steps back. His face had become extremely pale, as blood dripped out from his ears.
Even so, the Butcher was not at all afraid, as he roused his entire saint Qi, wanting to strike at Crone Qushan.
Fairy Tianchu called out softly.
“Your Highness, we, the cultivators of Tianchu Civilization fear no one.”
Everyone, including the Butcher, the Fool, and the eight Great Elders of the Tianchu Civilization said in unison.
Fairy Tianchu stopped them, as she stared at Crone Qushan, saying. “Since everyone is insisting on going into the Nine Carols Star to cultivate, then it will be ill manners for Luo Ji to stop you. But, after going in, please do not be disappointed.”
As she said that, Fairy Tianchu turned around, and flew back to the Nine Carols Star.
A cold light appeared in Li Miaohan’s eyes. “Damn it, these guys were usually like a group of lovestruck loons hounding Master and giving her all sorts of flattery. But at the critical moment, all of them still focused on their own interests.”
Zhang Ruochen smiled and said. “You don’t need to be so angry. On the surface, Fairy may be compromising to them, but isn’t it also a method to drive away the hounds. It may not be a good thing that they enter the Nine Carols Star, and perhaps they may come to regret it in the future.”
All of the cultivators on the island were overjoyed as they rushed to fly to the Nine Carols Star.
Before Fairy Tianchu flew into the Nine Carols Star, the Dizu Crown Prince took the opportunity and raised his voice. “For Fairy Tianchu to allow everyone to enter the Nine Carols Star, and obtain supreme fortune together, it is due to her generosity. If anyone dares to cause trouble at the Nine Carols Star, then don’t blame me for being unkind.”
As he said those words, the Dizu Crown Prince stared towards the Fourteenth Prince with a deep gaze.
The Fourteenth Prince smiled slightly and bowed. “Imperial brother.”
The Dizu Crown Prince snorted, as he flicked his sleeve and transformed into a golden light as he flew away from the island.
Zhang Ruochen and Li Miaohan both returned to the Nine Carols Star, to pay Fairy Tianchu a visit.
The Dizu Crown Prince, Shiqing Shenzi, and several other distinguished sons of heaven all stood outside Fairy Tianchu’s cultivation chamber, yet all of them were blocked outside by the Butcher and the Fool.
The Dizu Crown Prince looked solemn as he said, “Fairy, Crone Qushan’s cultivation is very profound, and her saint techniques powerful. We had no choice but to come to a compromise earlier.”
Unexpectedly, Shiqing Shenzi did not argue with the Dizu Crown Prince and said, “I’m not afraid of Crone Qushan, but if we fight, both sides will definitely lose. If the Blood Wasp Ashuran King is lurking nearby, then he will certainly reap all the benefits. If things progressed till that state, the situation will be even more unfavorable to us.”
The Dizu Crown Prince continued right after. “Letting Crone Qushan and the rest into the Nine Carols Star isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If the Blood Wasp Ashuran King dares to come, even if it was only for merits, Crone Qushand will definitely act.”
From the chamber, there was no response at all.
The Butcher’s expression was unfriendly, as he spat. “I’m holding back a stomachful of vengeful flames, if you lot dares to disturb the Fairy’s cultivation here any longer, don’t blame me for being rough on you.”
Both Li Miaohan and Zhang Ruochen walked over.
Zhang Ruochen said. “Sirs, for you to come to the Nine Carols Star, weren’t all of you looking for opportunities on this planet? Why are you still wasting time here?”
The eyes of those proud sons of heaven at the chamber sank.
If it was someone else who dared to spout such barbs at them, they’d long reduce him into a pile of paste.
However, Zhang Ruochen’s identity at the moment was Li Miaohan’s elder brother. And even if it was to show Fairy Tianchu their demeanor and upbringing, they had to restrain themselves.
Moreover, Crone Qushan had a very high evaluation of Zhang Ruochen, and the Dizu Crown Prince and the others dared to act rashly.
Zhang Ruochen said, “I would like to meet Her Highness alone.”
The anger on the Butcher’s face faded a little, as he nodded gently, opening the stone door of the chamber, and let Zhang Ruochen walk in.
Li Miaohan originally wanted to go in with him, but as she got to the stone door, she heard Zhang Ruochen’s voice. “Sister, wait for me outside.”
A puzzled look appeared on Li Miaohan’s face, and she stared at the Fool.
The Fool smiled at her and said. “Miss Miaohan, please wait outside for a moment. I guess your brother and Her Highness have some important things to discuss.”
The stone door closed again.
The Fool was actually willing to let Zhang Ruochen meet Master alone, and this showed that her previous thoughts were absolutely wrong. Zhang Ruochen was probably not as simple as pursuing Master’s affection, and it was very likely that Master and Zhang Ruochen had known each other for a long time.
Li Miaohan was not stupid, but instead, her mind was very keen.
It was precisely because of her sharp mind that she felt that things were unusual.
Of course, Li Miaohan did not think that her immaculate Master would have an emotional relationship with Zhang Ruochen. She was guessing whether if Master had already formed an alliance with Zhang Ruochen?
“Who is he, and how could he meet Fairy alone?”
“Perhaps he is Miss Miaohan’s brother? But why have I never seen him before.”
“It seems like that man’s relationship with Fairy is not normal. No wonder our various pursuits could not get Fairy to look at us. It seemed like someone had gotten there first.”
The proud sons of heaven outside the chamber could not calm themselves down, and many bore an angry expression.
The moment he entered the chamber, Zhang Ruochen heard the gentle sound of flowing water.
A seven-colored holy spring radiated colors of purple, white, blue, black, red, green, and gold as they trickled down and formed a colorful mist, making the entire cultivation chamber looking rather dreamy.
Fairy Tianchu stood by the holy spring. Her posture straight, her black hair long and flowing, her figure slender, looking as beautiful as a breathtaking painting.
She did not wear a veil, nor did she had a saint light screen around her. Zhang Ruochen could clearly see her almost flawless face, with a gentle outside, her curly lashes, her skin looked soft and nourished like an ice crystal jade, with grains of light radiating out from it.
“Isn’t it ridiculous?” Fairy Tianchu said.
Zhang Ruochen knew exactly what she was referring to and said, “It’s not. Everyone after all has their own selfishness. Besides, I don’t believe that you will be angry, depressed, or annoyed because of the choice they made.”
Fairy Tianchu’s beautiful eyes finally looked at Zhang Ruochen, as a smile appeared on her face. “Zhang Ruochen! Zhang Ruochen! We have only met a few times before, do you really understand me?”
Zhang Ruochen continued. “For you to be willing to give up your life to save your Lord Ancestor; for you to compromise with people you hate for the continuity of the Tianchu Civilization; for you to face a powerful foe to repay a debt of kindness. I don’t think the relationship between men and women would affect a person like you. Your heart is much strong than most men, and the likes of the Dizu Crown Prince may not even have a place in your eyes.”
Fairy Tianchu demurred for a moment, before saying. “What you see is only one side.”
Zhang Ruochen frowned. Did he say something wrong?
“What you see is only the strong side of a person and not the weak side.” Fairy Tianchu wanted to say this out, but she did not.
For some reason, Fairy Tianchu did not want Zhang Ruochen to see her weak side.
Fairy Tianchu then said. “What important matter do you have?”
“Mister Godcliff had come to Luoshui,” Zhang Ruochen replied.
Fairy Tianchu’s gaze froze, as she slowed down and said to herself. “Seems like I’ve made the right choice. It is a good thing to allow them to enter the Nine Carols Star.”
Fairy Tianchu seemed to have thought of something as she suddenly raised her head and said. “You should stay in the Eastern Region Holy City. Mister Godcliff hates you more than me, and if he knows that you have come to Luoshui, he will do whatever it takes to kill you first.”
Zhang Ruochen said, “You should know that I came here because of you.”
Fairy Tianchu turned around, her back facing Zhang Ruochen as she blinked twice. “What do you mean?”
Zhang Ruochen said, “A person told me before, a lady that would endanger herself to help me definitely would not do it because she wants to repay a debt of gratitude. So if danger were to befall this lady, how could I simply just stand aside?”
As he said that, Zhang Ruochen walked out of the chamber.
“What… What does he mean by that?”
Fairy Tianchu bit her lips lightly, her heart was in a slight flux.
Looking at Zhang Ruochen’s fading silhouette, Fairy Tianchu noticed that this guy was indeed somewhat different compared with the Dizu Crown Prince and the rest.
