Qin Wanwan didn’t say anything, seeing her not answering, Jian Xingzhi frowned: “Why aren’t you saying anything? You know what you’ve done wrong?”
“Master,” Qin Wanwan was a bit aggrieved, “look, you are standing in front of me. In the end, is it you who needs saving me or me saving you ah?”
“You are not only alive and kicking, you have even built your own mercenary organization. What kind of ability do you have, is this disciple unaware? Then why would I come here? Coming here wouldn’t be like sending myself to the death’s door? But I’m still here!”
Qin Wanwan completely turned 180 from her escape plan and turned into a full bloomed helpless disciple in front of Jian Xingzhi: “Knowing that you were in trouble, I still came to save you. I knew it was risky, but I still came to die, because I was worried about you. I came to the door of this Feng Yalou House to find you. Such a move, simply not caring about life and death is the most heroic! Master, have you ever seen any woman braver than me?”
The young heralds were confused while listening to Qin Wanwan’s monologue. Their eyes looking at Qin Wanwan turned admiring.
If it wasn’t for the fact that she ran fast without looking back, they would have believed it.
Jian Xingzhi wanted to find faults in her words but couldn’t find any. Just at that moment, Huanxi came forward and said hesitantly, “Master, please be prepared. It’s your turn after two more people.”
Hearing these words, Jian Xingzhi immediately changed his face. Looking at the people next to him, he ordered in a cold voice: “Arrange.”
Qin Wanwan didn’t have the time to react before he saw Jian Xingzhi carrying the hem of his clothes and leading people into the inner room hurriedly. While leaving, he also didn’t forget to call Qin Wanwan: “Beicheng, come with me.”
Qin Wanwan hurriedly followed in and watched in amazement as Jian Xingzhi sat in front of the dressing table and a group of men with murderous faces began to dress him up. He stretched out his feet, and one man began to paint his nails. Stretched out his hands, and another man put bracelets on both hands. Raised his head, and a man began to put makeup on his face. His long dark hair was being handled by another man, being curled with a red-hot iron rod in his hair. As he was dressing up, he began to instruct Qin Wanwan.
“I will tell Huanxi to take you to the lobby. I will become today’s most beautiful flower of Hua Ling, so the city lord’s subordinate Cuilu will notice me and want to take me with her to the city lord’s house. And that’s when you have to come out and stop it.”
“And then what?” Qin Wanwan listened carefully to his script and asked. Jian Xingzhi pursed his lips, he faced sideways, and the herald began to paint blush on his face as he seriously instructed her, “Then you will get hurt by someone and rush to escape. Remember to shout this sentence before running, ‘I will come back to save you Zhiyan!’.”
“But shouting this ……” Qin Wanwan did not understand, “What is the purpose of all the drama?”
“In order to make them strengthen the defense!” Jian Xingzhi said in a logical manner, not feeling that there wasn’t any logical problem in between from the beginning.”After I enter the city lord’s mansion, you will come back to save me and then be caught by them and become their prisoner!”
“And after that?”
“After that I will try to save you, don’t worry, I won’t let you die.”
Qin Wanwan: “……”
She knew it, she had to come and take the blame again.
Just at that moment, Huanxi rushed in again, “Master,” he rushed to Jian Xingzhi’s side and whispered, “Let’s go, everything is ready.”
Jian Xingzhi stood up and led the group of heralds out, while carrying the hem of his clothes that was dragging on the floor as if sweeping it and rushed out.
Qin Wanwan took a moment before standing up in a hurry and following Jian Xingzhi out the door: “Master, you have been dilly-dallying all along, what exactly is the reason for all of this?”
“I’ll go to the city lord’s residence.” Jian Xingzhi looked at her and calmly replied, “After I successfully blend in, then you can go in.”
So that I could be caught and imprisoned?
Qin Wanwan’s head was filled with question marks, questioning the logical sense of this unreasonable plot: “Then can’t we go in directly? Why do we have to be so dramatic?”
“Why don’t you ask the pixie.” Jian Xingzhi walked backstage and looked at the man who was playing the Guqin* on stage.
[T/N: Guqin is a Chinese musical instrument, also known as Chinese piano.]
Knowing that he was also doing a task, Qin Wanwan glanced at the stage in an effort to try to get more information, “Okay, then we’ll split up, but Master, what about these men of yours?”
“Kill them?” Jian Xingzhi turned around, behind him, the little heralds instantly knelt in a row, looking at him with teary eyes; “Master …… Master ……”
“Shut up before I really kill you all.” Jian Xingzhi waved his hand and turned his head to look at the stage: “Wait until I become Hua Ling.”
Qin Wanwan finally realized something was wrong, she twisted her head to look at the man playing the Guqin elegantly on the stage, and suddenly remembered, “Master, to be the Hua Ling, you have to perform on stage?”
“Of course, I have my unique skill, don’t worry,” Jian Xingzhi raised his hand and patted Qin Wanwan on the shoulder in assurance, “every time I performed in the Immortal Realm, there were so many people that it was simply crowded. Your Master is good at everything, just being a simple Hua Ling, it’s a piece of cake. You just go down the stage and watch my performance.” Saying this, he again turned around and commanded Huanxi. “Take Miss Gu down and arrange a good seat.” After that, Jian Xingzhi admonished her, “you must succeed in the task.”
It was as if she could succeed.
But even though it was not easy to succeed, it was easy to pretend. Qin Wanwan immediately nodded: “Master, don’t worry, I will.”
After the two discussed, Huanxi took Qin Wanwan to leave, before leaving, Jian Xingzhi suddenly called out to her, “Wait a minute.”
Qin Wanwan turned around and saw Jian Xingzhi looking her up and down for a moment and asked a question without a head or tail: “New clothes?”
Qin Wanwan nodded her head blankly: “Ah.”
Jian Xingzhi raised his eyebrows: “Not bad. After we go back, Master will buy you two more.”
Qin Wanwan was unable to respond for a moment, and just then, she heard Jian Xingzhi’s name being called on the stage: “Next, Jian Xingzhi from Feng Yalou.”
Jian Xingzhi ran up to the stage holding the long hem of his coat. Huanxi reminded her, who was looking at him blankly, “Miss Gu, let’s go.”
Qin Wanwan returned to her senses and followed Huanxi. Huanxi led her towards the VIP seats.
38 seemed to notice something and asked her in a whisper, “Master, are you helping him with this task?”
“Of course,” Qin Wanwan sighed, “For the sake of the beautiful clothes, if I don’t help him, he’ll have negative points, right?”
“Master is so kind!” 38 hurriedly patted the horse’s back*, “Helping him means also helping yourself. He is the core person of your tasks, help him solve the problem, and yours may be completed with his.”
[T/N: Patting the horse’s back either means overpraising someone or supporting someone. Not too sure. I could be wrong]
Qin Wanwan didn’t want to theorize with these silly systems, what else can she even do without helping him?
It’s just that Qin Wanwan didn’t want to think about it anymore and followed Huanxi along the corridor.
Feng Yalou House has two floors, the VIP seats are on the second floor. Huanxi led her to the second floor while whispering to her, “Lord Cuilu is right next to you, we opened a dark hole in the private room, so that it could be convenient for you to observe Lord Cuilu.”
“You are really thoughtful,” Qin Wanwan with the spirit of being kind to people, hurriedly praised Huanxi, “you will certainly have a great future in this mercenary profession.”
Hearing these words, Huanxi’s movements stiffened, and he laughed awkwardly: “Miss misunderstood, we …… we are all small heralds of the building, not any mercenary.”
“Ah?” Qin Wanwan was bewildered, “You guys …… you are heralds not mercenaries?”
“The truth is,” as Huanxi explained the whole matter, his eyes turned red. He subconsciously began to pout like a girl and started complaining, “this slave has never faced this kind of brutal Fuqin …… Oh no, Master. After he came here, he forced us to look like rough men to kidnap Miss ……”
As Huanxi complained, he bowed his head and wiped the tears: “Please talk to your Master Miss. We are small flowers, more delicate than the winter’s snow, we really can’t keep up with his harsh commands. When Fu…Master trained us today, more than a dozen of our brothers were sent to doctors ……”
Qin Wanwan: “……”
Jian Xingzhi, you are really worthy of being the strongest man in the Immortal Realm.
After complaining, Huanxi suddenly realized that he said too much, so he hurriedly wiped the tears, sucked his nose and said, “We don’t have much time. Master may have already reached the stage, let’s go.”
Qin Wanwan nodded, she was also not good at comforting this kind of man who cries anytime and anywhere. After sending Huanxi away, she went into the VIP room, and saw there was already a waiter waiting for her in there. When Qin Wanwan entered, he gave Qin Wanwan a salute and poured tea, as he respectfully said, “Miss, please sit here.”
Qin Wanwan sat down by the window, she turned her head to look at the compartment, and then used her divine sense to feel that there were three people in the compartment. One of them was a woman, sitting in the chair. She was accompanied by two more women, who were standing beside her. The woman sitting was at the level of God Transformation, the ones standing were all her maids, who were Nascent Soul cultivators.
Maybe the other party sensed Qin Wanwan’s divine sense, so she quickly retracted her divine sense and turned her head to look at the stage.
The host on the stage was introducing Jian Xingzhi, while Jian Xingzhi was standing on one side, looking very confident. He didn’t seem to have any stage phobia, and seemed to be used to all kinds of situations.
Qin Wanwan leaned back in her chair, grabbed a handful of melon seeds, and waited for Jian Xingzhi to perform. Although she was skeptical at first, she actually found it a bit interesting.
After the host introduced Jian Xingzhi, he turned his head to look at Jian Xingzhi as he asked, chirping: “So, what talent is Jian-gonzi going to show us today? And what talent will move the hearts of our guests to give their precious votes for him? Let’s cheer for Jian-gonzi!”
With that, the audience roared with applause.
After all, on this kind of occasion, the most important thing is the face. The face of Jian Xingzhi was simply unparalleled, especially in this kind of beauty pageant.
“This young man has the spirit.”
Qin Wanwan chewed on melon seeds, listening to the voice coming from beside the room. It seemed that the city lord’s subordinate, Cuilu, was very appreciative to Jian Xingzhi: “Not bad looking either, the Lord of the City likes such energetic children.”
Isn’t it obvious?
Qin Wanwan rolled her eyes, with Jian Xingzhi’s looks, even if he were been ugly, who would still dislike it knowing his talent?
Cuilu just finished, when the voice of Jian Xingzhi came from the stage, “Gentlemen, today I am going to show you the most beautiful sight of a man.” Saying this, Jian Xingzhi suddenly took off the long jacket, leaving only a pure white single shirt inside. He raised his head proudly and cupped his fist. His muscles bulged through the clothes at the movement as he exclaimed. “Power!”
The atmosphere in the room was instantly ignited, applause fell like thunder. Qin Wanwan on the other hand was dumbfounded, she looked at Jian Xingzhi on the stage and saw someone carrying a big stone on the stage and walking towards him. The one who brought the stone was at the Foundation Establishment. Jian Xingzhi raised his hand and pointed to the stone as he exclaimed loudly, “Today, my first show, breaking the boulder with my chest!”
With that, he lay down on a stage, and had the stone pressed up on top of his chest. With a pair of handsome eyes calmly looking at the man holding up the sledgehammer, he encouraged, “Come on!”
