Chapter 22 – Change seats with the old man
Ye Fan made some talismans and self-defense tools, and then carried a travel bag on his back to set off on the journey to Luofeng Town, Shanxi.
“Sorry, our hotel is full.” The lady at the front desk looked at Ye Fan.
Ye Fan looked at the receptionist lady full of depression, “Not even one room is available?”
The receptionist shook her head and said, “No.”
“I can add money!” Ye Fan said sullenly.
“I’m sorry, we are really out of rooms.”
Ye Fan was standing at the front desk rubbing elbows with the receptionist when Bai Yunxi came down from the top of the stairs of the inn.
Ye Fan saw Bai Yunxi and got excited all of a sudden, Ye Fan walked up quickly, grabbed Bai Yunxi’s arm and said, “Did you book a room?”
Bai Yunxi was a bit baffled by Ye Fan’s thoughtless sentence.
“Why are you here?” Bai Yunxi frowned and asked.
“I’m here for archaeology! However, there is no room!”
“Archaeology?” Bai Yunxi asked in confusion.
Ye Fan took out a work permit and said, “Yes, Uncle Zhou introduced me, look at this…”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
“Why did Uncle Zhou introduce you?” Bai Yunxi said in disgust.
“Maybe he thinks I have a future! Did you receive the letter I sent you before?” Ye Fan asked.
Bai Yunxi frowned and said, “Letter? What kind of letter? I didn’t see it.”
Ye Fan was full of depression and said: “Hmph, that bastard lied to me that he had already sent it. I’m going to talk to him about it another day.”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
“Ah! How about this, I will go to your room to sleep on the floor, I will pay for the room?” Ye Fan looked at Bai Yunxi and suggested.
Yang Fei came out just in time to hear Ye Fan’s “brave words”, and immediately admired him.
Yang Fei is Xiao Chi’s apprentice, and he has a good relationship with Bai Yunxi. In Yang Fei’s eyes, Bai Yunxi, a young junior, is handsome and talented, but he is too cold and arrogant. However, Bai Yunxi comes from a distinguished background, and it is normal to be noble.
“I don’t think so,” Bai Yunxi said with a sullen face.
Ye Fan smiled and said, “Are you afraid of me snoring? You can rest assured that I sleep well and will never disturb you.”
Bai Yunxi sneered and said, “Shut up! There is no floor for you to sleep on, so you should sleep out in the open.”
Ye Fan complained a little depressed: “Ah! You are really indifferent!”
Bai Yunxi smiled gloomily, and said, “Why do you think that I will give you the floor of my room for a room fee of several hundred yuan?”
Ye Fan looked at Bai Yunxi and said, “It’s not like I’m taking up the bed where you sleep.”
“Dream on!” Bai Yunxi sneered.
Ye Fan: “…”
Yang Fei came over and said, “Little brother, can you show me your work permit?”
“Yes!” Ye Fan said generously.
Yang Fei took the work permit and checked it, “If you don’t mind, there is an empty bed in my room that can be given to you.”
Ye Fan nodded and said happily: “Well, okay, thank you. It would be nice if Young Master Bai’s temper was as good as yours.”
Yang Fei: “…”
Ye Fan followed Yang Fei into the room.
“Classmate Ye, you are also a scholar of ancient literature research?” Yang Fei said with a smile.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “That’s right.”
“Take a look at what this inscription means.” Yang Fei took out a piece of paper and handed it to Ye Fan.
Ye Fan’s eyes swept the paper casually, and said, “Oh, this is about a princess who likes to collect men, so she married eighteen husbands. As a result, when the princess died, her emperor brother let those eighteen unfortunate bastards be buried with her. What a magnificent figure among women!”
Yang Fei looked at Ye Fan in surprise, and thought: So powerful!
The state did not know about the tomb in Shanxi, and it was discovered by chance when two tomb robbers took out a bronze tripod from it and sold it on the black market.
What Yang Fei showed Ye Fan was the inscription printed on the copper tripod.
At the beginning, Professor Xiao spent a lot of effort to figure out the meaning of this inscription. He didn’t expect Ye Fan to know it with a casual glance, this guy is really powerful!
“Where did this thing come from?” Ye Fan asked.
Yang Fei smiled and said, “From an antique.”
“Then I’m afraid this antique is an evil weapon! If you touch it for a long time, you will lose your life!” Ye Fan said indifferently.
Yang Fei’s heartstrings tightened. According to the information, there were ten tomb robbers in total, and eight died in the tomb. Although the remaining two escaped, they all died shortly after. And that’s the tomb they are going to explore.
Yang Fei shook his head and did not think deeply.
“Young Master Ye, what is your relationship with Young Master Bai?” Yang Fei asked curiously.
Ye Fan shrugged and said, “There’s not much relationship yet, but when I catch up with him, he’ll be my wife.”
Yang Fei: “…” Brave man! Dare to say such a thing, let the old man of the Bai family know, he has to dip this guy in a pig cage.
“Then you have to work hard, Young Master Bai is not easy to chase!” Yang Fei said.
Ye Fan nodded, and said with conviction: “Isn’t it? He won’t even let me make sleep on the floor.”
Yang Fei: “…”
“Is it Zhou Jinzhi, Old Man Zhou recommended you to come here…” Yang Fei asked.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes!”
Yang Fei: “…” Why would Old Man Zhou send such an oddball over?
“Let’s rest early, tomorrow we will take a two-hour bus into the mountains,” Yang Fei said.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Oh, okay.”

Early the next morning, several people were waiting for the bus in the open space in front of the hotel.
“Here, this is your ticket, just take the right seat later,” Yang Fei said.
“Wait a minute, can I sit with Young Master Bai?” Ye Fan asked.
Yang Fei shook his head and said, “I’m afraid it won’t work. Your ticket is No. 4. You have to sit with me.”
“Why do I still have to sit with you when I already slept with you?” Ye Fan asked unhappily.
Yang Fei: “…” You think I am willing, ah?!
Noticing the gazes gathered around him, Yang Fei blushed, wishing he could dig a hole in the ground and get in.
“What about Young Master Bai?” Ye Fan asked.
Yang Fei said angrily, “He hasn’t come yet.”
“It looks like this guy likes to sleep in,” Ye Fan muttered.
Ye Fan got into the bus and found that his seat was diagonally opposite to Bai Yunxi, who was sitting in the number one window seat, and sitting with Bai Yunxi was a weak-looking old man.
“Hey, old man, let me change seats with you, okay?” Ye Fan asked carelessly, holding on to Xiao Chi’s seat.
Yang Fei: “…” Old man?! This damn guy actually called Professor Xiao old man?!
Yang Fei turned his face, deeply regretting his momentary soft-heartedness yesterday, such a guy deserved to sleep outside.
Xiao Chi frowned, gave Ye Fan a displeased look, and said, “No change.”
“Old man, don’t be so stingy!” Ye Fan took out a jade pendant and said, “Old man, see if I can change your seat with this jade pendant.”
Before Xiao Chi could speak, a man in a Taoist robe next to him opened his eyes and said, “Little brother, this jade pendant is pretty good, with a hint of spiritual energy. I’m afraid it can’t be bought without two or three million.”
Ye Fan looked at the man and said in surprise: “Hey, friend, you are quite knowledgeable!”
Xiao Chi: “…” That’s Mr. Zhang Wentao from Longhu Mountain! He was specially sent by the special department of the state. Ye Fan, this guy, really doesn’t know the goods, what kind of attitude!
“I don’t know which master handed this jade pendant?” Zhang Wentao said with a smile.
“I found it in the antique market, five thousand yuan.” The jade pendant was indeed bought by Ye Fan, but the formation in the jade pendant was entered by Ye Fan later.
“Little brother is lucky!”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes!”
Ye Fan turned his eyes to Xiao Chi and said: “Hey, old man, you heard him, it’s a good thing! It can bring good fortune and ward off evil. It’s most suitable for people like you who are old and still don’t think twice about running to a place with strong Yin energy like an ancient tomb to seek their own death.”
Xiao Chi’s beard shook with anger, his face was blue!
Yang Fei: “…” This guy, Ye Fan, is there something wrong with his head?
Zhang Wentao looked at Xiao Chi and said, “Professor Xiao Chi, this jade pendant can ward off evil. You can change seats with him, it’s not a loss.”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes! Yes! It’s just a seat!”
Xiao Chi glanced at Ye Fan and said, “Okay, I’ll swap with you.”
“Old man, your name sounds familiar,” Ye Fan gave the jade pendant to Xiao Chi, and did not forget to mutter a sentence.
Xiao Chi: “…”

Ye Fan got his wish and sat next to Bai Yunxi. Bai Yunxi was wearing sunglasses and had his eyes closed, not giving a single glance to Ye Fan, who took out a bag of potato chips and handed it over, saying curtly, “Do you want to eat potato chips?”
Bai Yunxi glanced at Ye Fan coldly and said, “No.”
“Would you like to eat white rabbit toffee?”
“Would you like to drink Zhiduoxing milk?”
Bai Yunxi took off his glasses and said, “I don’t want to drink it, but you can drink a little more and grow more brains.”
Ye Fan smugly said, “I am learned and knowledgeable, so I don’t need to grow more brains.”
Bai Yunxi: “…” Are you sure?
“Hey, you have taken the medicine, ha, and you lied to me that you did not see the letter I wrote to you. Then how did you know the prescription?” Smelling the smell of medicine in Bai Yunxi’s body, Ye Fan said with satisfaction.
Bai Yunxi: “The prescription is from a peerless master…” Bai Yunxi’s words suddenly got stuck, “Could it be that…”
Ye Fan nodded, patted his chest, and said, “Yes, that peerless master is me.”
Bai Yunxi sneered and said, “If you are sick, go see a doctor.”
Ye Fan said in disapproval: “I’m not sick! You are more seriously ill.”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
Bai Yunxi put on his sunglasses, too lazy to talk to Ye Fan. Ye Fan grabbed Bai Yunxi’s hand, Bai Yunxi wanted to withdraw it, but a warm energy flowed in from the palm of his hand, and Bai Yunxi had a warm feeling all over his body. This unprecedented experience made Bai Yunxi indulge Ye Fan’s behavior.
The car kept driving forward and Bai Yunxi drifted off to sleep.
When he fell asleep, he leaned on Ye Fan’s shoulder.
Seeing Bai Yunxi’s sleeping face, Ye Fan felt a little proud.
Zhang Wentao looked at Ye Fan and smiled, and said, “It turns out that the little brother is a fellow master, I was disrespectful.”
Ye Fan smiled and said nothing.
Ye Fan knows that there are some people in this world who have some strange skills. Ye Fan doesn’t know much about them, so he will not comment.
Xiao Chi looked at Bai Yunxi, who was sleeping on Ye Fan’s shoulder, and couldn’t help but have a feeling that his good cabbage was eaten by a pig.
good cabbage was eaten by a pig – his precious baby fell into the hands of a bastard
