Chapter 42


The air froze.

Their gazes were stuck onto each other, big eyes staring at the small ones.

In the suffocating silence, Lin Suci was the first to regain his sanity.

The slender girl in a pink skirt was dolled up with makeup and powder. Her expression of horror was on her face. Her eyebrows, mouth and nose were opened to the extreme, not to mention ordinary girls, anyone would look ugly in that and was difficult for people to look directly at.

Lin Suci swallowed hard, “…Uh, long time no see?”

On the other side, Bai Qingkong, whose face looked like as if being struck by lightning, replied with a dull gaze, “…Long time no see.”

“Your dress-up…” Lin Suci racked his brains, and boasted nonsense with his eyes wide open, “is very…chic.”

Bai Qingkong blushed after realizing it, “Don’t look…”

Dressed up as a girl in a fine pink skirt, Bai Qingkong lifted the puffy skirt and squatted, covering the with hands. Bai’s actions revealed that he had no choice to be like that.

Lin Suci’s gaze shifted all over him.

The other one was taller, covering her face with sleeves all the time, leaning on one side like a stone pillar, stiff and motionless.

“Aren’t you saying hello?” Lin Suci gradually found some fun in it.

The other one who was having ‘fun’ did not want to be happy like that at all.

Shu Changyi also turned his face to the side, his eyebrows and lips were drawn as if he was dead, “You…Are you fine?”

Lin Suci: “I’m fine, but looking at you two, it doesn’t seem so for both of you.”

Bai Qingkong and Shu Changyi were speechless, “…”

Whenever people did not meet in life, it would be a joy if good old friends met. However, Bai Qingkong and Shu Changyi could not wait to screw themselves into the ground. Facing Lin Suci’s tease, they lowered their heads, seemingly lost their faces.

The three talked for a while, and the young woman was surprised, “Does this young man know them?”

Lin Suci came up with curiosity, and immediately asked, “Why, from your words, do you know them as well?”

“Naturally, I do.” The young woman did not look at the two people with greenish-blue faces, and continued, “They are the girls who just came to the Fragrance House. They were so hungry that their chests were almost attached to their backs. I have taken care of their two meals. Occasionally, I also asked the guests who came if they would like to give them a bite of food.”

Lin Suci knew what the prostitute’s meal was. He strangely looked at the opposite two, wondering if he should be grateful that the world’s male protagonist did not sell himself.

Just another thought came to him. If the world’s protagonist wanted to sell his body and no one bought it, it was also embarrassing and miserable.

Bai Qingkong squatted on the ground, and threw the container in hand, “We didn’t have any food to eat today. I wanted to beg for food from this sister’s family, but I met you. Why don’t you treat us to a meal?”

When did Lin Suci ever disagree with something? He immediately clapped his hands, “Deal, let’s go eat together.”

“Wait,” Shu Changyi saw that Lin Suci was about to take them away, his cheeks twitched, “Let’s go to…the Fragrance House first to give a few spirit stones to the mother of keepers.”

Lin Suci followed the two people all the way to the entrance of the Fragrance House. Looking at the majestic soaring swordsman Bai Qingkong, and the world-famous wing ravage swordsman Shu Changyi, Lin Suci watched them as they nodded and bowed with a smile to stuff money for the mother of keepers.

Leaving the Fragrance House, he was silent for a while. At last, he could not hold back as he clutched his stomach and almost burst his belly, laughing.

There was a restaurant not far away that Lin Suci had been fond of. He originally wanted to order a table of dishes, but Xiao Lan and him surely could not finish them. Fortunately, he met Bai Qingkong and Shu Changyi, so he casually wanted one big table, and the four people set up a screen to separate them from the other customers. They were full with food and drinks. The four leaned on their chairs while rubbing their stomachs, very joyous.

“Xingchen, thank you very much. When we go back, we will treat you to something delicious.” Bai Qingkong rubbed his bulging belly, feeling somewhat unconscious.

Lin Suci did not care about that kind of thing, just curious, “What were you guys doing though?”

Bai Qingkong and Shu Changyi looked at each other.

“This matter… It’s a long story…”

After leaving Purple Gold Glaze, Bai Qingkong and Shu Changyi took the chance to slip away. Shu Changyi vaguely explained about what was going on. He only said that he had a distant younger cousin sister, who came here from afar, but did not find Shu Changyi when she first arrived. However, she was taken to a bad place, and finally was grabbed home by a cultivator to be a slave.

Shu Changyi could not get the sect to come forward, so he had to think himself to save his cousin. It happened that Bai Qingkong was also there. The two of them made a plan and waited for the opportunity to arise by pretending to be a prostitute in the Fragrance House that the cultivator often visited. When he ordered them, they will follow him back to his house and secretly take away his cousin.

“Our appearance is indeed ridiculous, but it is also to save people…” Shu Changyi stroked his braid and sighed deeply.

“Yes,” Bai Qingkong was also worried, “Brother Shu and I have been waiting here for several days. We were hungry every day and dare not leave. We afraid of missing the chance and unable to save Shu’s cousin anymore.”

Lin Suci was a little puzzled after hearing that.

It was not the plot in the original book.

Also, where did Shu Changyi’s cousin sister come from?

Although he felt a little strange, when he thought about it, Shu Changyi himself had many problems, and it was normal for him to have problems.

Anyway, since little cabbage was the world’s male protagonist, he would certainly not lose in such a small matter.

Lin Suci relieved his heart and poured wine for the two of them.

“Qingkong and Brother Shu are really good people. You are willing to sacrifice yourselves to save others. Let me give both of you a toast.”

He poured wine for two people, and turned it around, trying to quietly add wine to his glass, but was stopped by Xiao Lan who had been staring at him, “Little junior, you can’t drink this.”

Lin Suci’s face drooped.

After a meal, he was the only one who could not touch a drop of wine. He did not dare to move when he smelled the wine, so he stuck his tongue out with greediness.

It was a pity that Xiao Lan said that if he drank, he would tell Yan Boshen.

Yan Boshen had a strict control on him, Lin Suci decided not to challenge the status of his owner, and held the teacup sensibly.

Shu Changyi suddenly said, “Are you going to come together?”

What together?

Lin Suci blinked, “…what do you mean?”

“It’s just that you seemed curious about us like this. If you like it, you can also dress like this.” Shu Changyi explained.

Lin Suci raised his hand and shook it resolutely, “Thank you, but I won’t join you.”

After a pause, he gave a smirk, “I can’t compare to Qingkong and Brother Shu who dressed in women’s clothing, yet looked so good.”

Looking at the two people in front of him, he felt that Bai Qingkong’s young age and thin body looked as fine as a female, and did not seem unsuitable at all. As for Shu Changyi, he was smaller himself. Although he did not want to be so indistinguishable from Bai Qingkong, he was still able to make a pass with the makeup.

In that way, they were still considered as two little beauties.

Lin Suci refused them, waited for them to slightly digest the food, and planned to send them back.

It was dusk now, and the alley with red lanterns was all lit up. Compared to the empty space when he went to buy rouge before, it was crowded and bustling now.

Lin Suci and Xiao Lan walked in front, Bai Qingkong and Shu Changyi pretended to follow behind them as if they were ordered, and blended into the Fragrance House.

That was the first time Lin Suci had seen such a place. It was colourful and filled with an ambiguous fragrance, the surrounding girls and guests laughed and laughed one after another, and the staircase was crowded with girls holding handkerchiefs.

One of the people in charge saw Bai Qingkong and Shu Changyi, and quickly said, “Bee and Butterfly, don’t stand there and wait! If there are no guests today, I will deal with both of you!”

Lin Suci controlled himself from smiling, there seemed to have no loving friendship between them at all. He watched Bai Qingkong and Shu Changyi with a stiff smirk as they mixed into the group of girls, and then beckoned the handkerchief to attract guests.

“Two young men, may I know what kind of girl both of you like? We have female cultivators here. It’s best to practise dual cultivation here. Why don’t you look around?”

The woman-in-charge circled Lin Suci and said with a smile.

Lin Suci’s heart moved.

That was the first time he had seen that kind of fireworks in Willow Lane.

“Little Junior,” Xiao Lan spoke to him telepathically, “Just take two glances around. If you dare to stay, Big Senio Brother will demolish you.”

Lin Suci rubbed his nose, “I’m just looking around.”

He stood in the hall, surrounded by extravagant fragrance. Many people there knew that he was a little monk or cultivator who had not been involved in the huge world, so Lin Suci attracted almost everyone’s attention.

Lin Suci looked at it for a moment, and felt that Bai Qingkong and Shu Changyi were also there. That small branch line could go anyway, so it had nothing to do with him.

He walked up the side ladder and stood in front of Bai Qingkong and Shu Changyi.

“You guys may continue. If you need help in the future, you can call me. I should go back today. It’s too late.”

Lin Suci greeted the duo.

Bai Qingkong used a handkerchief to cover his lips, “Okay, this is not a good place either, it’s too messy, so it’s best for you to go back soon.”

Lin Suci nodded, “Then I will leave first. If you have no food to eat, I will come and take you out to eat tomorrow.”

“Then I’ll be waiting for you.” Shu Changyi was more like a fish obtaining water, and casted a wink at Lin Suci.

Lin Suci raised his eyebrows, his lips twitched, and his green eyes looked extremely clear under the dim and ambiguous light.

The delicate young man winked more professionally than Shu Changyi, “I will never ask a little beauty to wait in vain.”

As he said, he stretched out his hand and lifted Shu Changyi’s head by the chin.

Shu Changyi: “…” I let my guard down.

Lin Suci laughed and waved to the two of them to signal that he was leaving.

“This young man…”

Lin Suci was still standing on the side ladder before going down, and suddenly heard someone shouting at him downstairs.

He looked down.

Standing not far behind Xiao Lan, there was a brawny man in brocade clothes with a face full of flesh, looking like a butcher who slaughtered pigs for a living.

Lin Suci was surprised, and pointed at himself, “This strong man, did you call for me?”

Shu Changyi took a sharp breath behind him, and carefully poked him in the back, with a light and fluttering breath, he spoke, “This person is the one who took my cousin…”

The brawny man looked excited and stared straight at Lin Suci, his gaze gave people a nauseous feeling that seemed disgusting and could make scalps went numb.

“May I know how much this young man is, would you like to come with me?”

Lin Suci had a familiar feeling. It seemed that a few months ago, someone asked him in that way.

It used to be the same for Cui Hong, but now the top of the grave was full of grass.

Lin Suci gritted his teeth, and suddenly remembered something, his fierce face suddenly showed a brilliant smile, “Three thousand spirit stones, and I will come with you with these two little sisters.”
