Chapter 37 – How am I supposed to continue the act?

In the western region of Great Shang, the carriages and horses were rushing from the Divine Temple in the Western Regions to the capital city of Great Shang.

In the front and back of the team, a hundred fully armed divine temple cavalrymen followed, covered in silver armor from head to toe, with only their eyes exposed, almost armed to the teeth.

In the middle of the team, the most prestigious person in the world was sitting on a luxurious carriage inlaid with gold and jade.

The Divine Child of the Divine Temple!

Yan Xiaoyu.

His handsome face, as if carved by the heavens themselves, with sword-like eyebrows and starry eyes, exuded a heroic aura. He wore a moon-white robe with gold thread embellishments, which, combined with his perfect face, made everyone else in the entourage pale in comparison.

Yan Xiaoyu, the strongest Divine Child in the history of the Divine Temple, without a doubt.

In terms of strength and talent, Yan Xiaoyu had already surpassed the other three, ranking first.

“Divine Child, there is a rugged mountain road ahead, with many bandits lurking. It may be dangerous, so please be careful,” the chief of the divine temple cavalry, Mu Shou Zhi, rode up on horseback as they were about to pass a mountain stream, speaking respectfully.

“The Divine Child has my protection. The chief only needs to lead the way,” Yan Xiaoyu had not spoken yet when a red-robed, androgynous, and wrinkled-faced old man under the carriage spoke in a hoarse voice.


Mu Shou Zhi glanced at the red-robed old man who had spoken and nodded in agreement, then immediately spurred his horse to the front of the team.

“Grand Archbishop Rongnü, you can come up if you want,” Yan Xiaoyu looked at the red-robed old man under the carriage, speaking gently.

Although Liu Rongnü looked like a dying old man and seemed unremarkable, her status was extremely respected, ranking among the four red-robed grand archbishops of the Divine Temple, second only to the temple master. Even he had to treat her with respect.

“No need.”

Liu Rongnü replied calmly, “I’m used to walking.”

Yan Xiaoyu nodded with a smile at her response, not trying to persuade her further.

In the Divine Temple, there were many strange people, and this Grand Archbishop Rongnü was particularly eccentric, resembling a monk who had renounced the world. However, her cultivation was extremely powerful, and no one dared to provoke her.

The carriages rumbled past the mountain stream, and on both sides of the mountain slopes, there were occasional falling rocks, creating an increasingly eerie atmosphere.

The chief of the divine temple cavalry, Mu Shou Zhi, looked at the mountain slopes on both sides, his eyes narrowing slightly.

Something was not right!

“Haha, after waiting for so long, we finally caught a big fat sheep. Brothers, the silver is delivered to us. Kill them!”

At that moment, a rough and hearty laughter rang out from the side of the mountain slope, echoing through the valley.


Following that, hundreds of figures emerged from the mountain grass, picking up rocks and logs to throw down below.

Suddenly, the sound of rolling boulders echoed through the mountain stream.

“Form a defensive formation, protect!”

The chief of the divine temple cavalry, Mu Shou Zhi, remained calm and gave the order.


The hundred silver-armored cavalrymen in the front and back of the team responded in unison, immediately contracting and crossing their long spears to block the rolling logs and falling rocks.

Bang! Bang! Bang!

The violent collisions sounded as countless boulders and logs were blocked by the hundred silver-armored cavalrymen, and not a single one fell into the interior of the team.

As the boulders and logs fell to the ground, warhorses neighed, dust billowed, and on the mountain, several hundred bandits immediately rushed down, shouting.

“Kill them!”

Three to four hundred bandits, each wielding a machete, exuded a fierce air. Among the group of bandits, the leader held a large machete, covered in scars, and charged down at the front.

“Change formation, attack!”

Amidst the swirling dust, Mu Shou Zhi watched the bandits charging down, calmly giving the order.


The hundred silver-armored cavalrymen received the order, their armor clanging as they moved, forming a battle formation and charging into the swirling dust with their long spears.

In an instant, the hundred silver-armored cavalrymen and over three hundred bandits engaged in a one-sided slaughter. The bandits quickly fell in the swirling dust, staining the ground of the mountain stream red.

Some bandits broke through the defensive line and charged towards Yan Xiaoyu’s carriage. Before they could even see the face of the young man on the carriage, they felt a terrifying wave of energy.

With a loud bang, everyone near the carriage was sent flying by this terrifying wave of energy, along with the swirling dust, which was completely dispersed.

As the dust cleared, the bandits writhing in pain on the ground, in the middle, the red-robed old man stood there, with five divine hidden techniques constantly roaring on his body, exuding a terrifying aura.

“Get lost!”

Liu Rongnü’s pair of old eyes swept over everyone present, and she coldly ordered.

Like thunder, her voice exploded in the mountain stream, and all the bandits, including the bandit leader, were struck as if by lightning, spewing blood and looking horrified, then scrambling to escape up the mountain.

Practitioners of the Five Realms, terrifying as such…After sending away the bandits in the mountains, the Divine Temple team continued on their journey. On the carriage, Yan Xiaoyu looked at the old man in the red robe beside him and nodded in acknowledgment. “Bishop Liu, thank you for your help.”

“It is my duty,” Liu Rongnü replied calmly, then fell silent and continued to follow the team.

Seeing this, Yan Xiaoyu smiled faintly and said no more.

It seemed that it was not easy to win over Bishop Liu.

Great Shang Capital City.

The news of the Divine Temple team being attacked quickly spread to the major powers.

Especially within the Divine Temple team, the terrifying strength displayed by Bishop Liu shocked everyone in the capital city.

“The Fifth Realm, damn it.”

Li Yuan, Li Ziye, couldn’t help but curse when he heard the news.

The Divine Temple actually sent a Bishop in red to protect Yan Xiaoyu. What a joke.

He couldn’t possibly send someone to knock out Yan Xiaoyu in the presence of a Fifth Realm powerhouse.

“Liu Rongnü is also here?”

Bai Wangyu, upon hearing the news, showed a hint of surprise on his usually calm face. This was troublesome.

The strength of Bishop Liu was unfathomable, and she was probably even more powerful than the Confucian School’s Grand Elder.


Beside him, Li Ziye responded with a face full of frustration.

There was no need to think about it. His fantasy of snatching the third King’s Medicine was completely ruined.

He should continue to consider his plan to sell his looks!

Indeed, he was more suited to living off others.

If things didn’t work out, he would just have to yield to Long Sun Nanqiao when they went for a stroll by the lake tomorrow.

“Old Bai.”

Thinking of this, Li Ziye looked at the little red hat beside him and repeatedly instructed, “Tomorrow, when you and I go together, act according to the situation. If Chen Yifei and those playboys want to cause trouble for me, you can cripple them. If Long Sun Nanqiao uses force on me, pretend not to see it, understand?”


Bai Wangyu glanced at the idiot beside him, didn’t want to speak, afraid that idiocy was contagious.

The next day, at the break of dawn, Li Ziye eagerly took the little red hat and went to Long Sun’s mansion to meet Long Sun Nanqiao.

Outside Long Sun’s mansion, the two didn’t wait long before Long Sun Nanqiao, dressed in a long skirt, walked out. Her beautiful face was clearly carefully made up, looking charming and attractive.

“Nanqiao, please.”

Li Ziye helped Long Sun Nanqiao onto the carriage, then gave the little red hat a look and said, “Old Bai, drive.”

After that, Li Ziye also got into the carriage.

Bai Wangyu sat in the carriage, silent, and silently acted as the coachman.

Inside the carriage, Li Ziye looked at the woman in front of him with a bright smile on his face.

He didn’t think his behavior was excessive at all.

To make the Confucian School’s senior brother act as a coachman, only Li Ziye dared to do so under the heavens, and he was so unapologetic about it.

“Young Master Li, did you find me for something?” Long Sun Nanqiao looked at the smile on the young man’s face and felt a hint of indescribable awkwardness, unable to help but ask.

“Strolling by the lake, enjoying the scenery!”

“It’s autumn now.”

Long Sun Nanqiao reminded him that it was the first time she had heard of strolling by the lake in autumn.

“What’s wrong with autumn? As long as Nanqiao is here, it’s spring everywhere.”

Li Ziye began to show off his shameless skills to win the girl’s favor, smiling.

If you want to win a girl’s heart, you have to be shameless, absolutely shameless, shameless to the core!

“Young Master Li, why are you so sweet today?”

Hearing the young man’s words, Long Sun Nanqiao’s face showed a hint of a smile as she asked.

“A few days ago, when Nanqiao came to Li Yuan, I didn’t realize your good intentions at the time. It wasn’t until after you left that I regretted it. So, today, I invite you to come out and enjoy the scenery to make amends.” Li Ziye smiled.

Outside, Bai Wangyu, who was driving the carriage, couldn’t help but twitch his mouth when he heard the nonsense Li Ziye was spouting inside the carriage.

Regret? If it weren’t for the King’s Medicine brought by Yan Xiaoyu, he wouldn’t believe that this guy had an ounce of regret in his heart.

Of course, Bai Wangyu didn’t expose the lies of the guy in the carriage, but chose to assist in his wrongdoing.

After all, they were in this together.

On the outskirts of the city, the Xiang River flowed from the capital city, extending all the way to the lake. The turbulent river gradually calmed down, forming a beautiful lake.

Around it, perhaps due to the warmth of the lake, there was still a hint of greenery.

“We’re here!”

With the morning sun shining, Bai Wangyu stopped the carriage a hundred steps away from the lake and spoke.

“Nanqiao, please!”

Inside the carriage, Li Ziye gallantly helped Long Sun Nanqiao down from the carriage and, after taking a distant look at the lake, stepped onto the grass and walked forward with her.

Bai Wangyu, on the other hand, stayed by the carriage, silently watching the horses without following.

By the lake, Li Ziye led Long Sun Nanqiao and, looking at the water ahead, was suddenly inspired to recite a poem: “The water glistens beautifully in the clear sunshine, and the mountains look mysterious even in the rain.”

After reciting half a good poem, Li Ziye shifted his gaze back to the woman beside him and began to praise her with poetry. “To compare the Xiang River to Lady Xi, light makeup or heavy makeup, both are suitable!”

So moist, so moist!

After reciting the poem, Li Ziye couldn’t help but praise himself in his heart. Fortunately, he still had some reserves of poetry.

“Young Master Li, your literary talent is indeed extraordinary, but have you always been like this in winning over girls?”Changsun Nanqiao praised the former, then with a smile that was not quite a smile, she asked, “Should I play along a bit, and pretend to be deeply moved?”

If she were still a naive young girl, she might have been swayed by this fellow’s literary grace.

But now, she was nearly twenty-eight years old, no longer the little girl who could be touched by a poem or two.

Beside her, Li Ziye, who had just finished a fine poem and was ready to bask in adoration, was taken aback by her words.

This isn’t how it’s supposed to go!

Shouldn’t she be looking at him with admiration after he displayed his talent, then crying out to devote herself to him?

At the very least, she should be tearfully lamenting the helplessness of ‘you were born before me, and by the time you were born, I was already old’!

Li Ziye looked at the woman beside him, his gaze somewhat vacant.

With such a reaction from you, how am I supposed to continue the act?
