Chapter 113 — Arranging the Engagement
“Daoist Master Xu, where is Young Master Mu?” Bai Shiyuan asked.
Xu Yuanqing frowned and said, “He’s gone to see Young Master Ye.”
Bai Shiyuan said in surprise: “He went to Ye Fan’s place, what is he doing at Ye Fan’s place?”
“He watched Ye Fan’s related videos and became a fan of Ye Fan.”
Bai Shiyuan almost spit out a mouthful of tea. “Young Master Mu became Ye Fan’s fan?”
Xu Yuanqing nodded and said, “Yes.”
The competition between the ancient martial arts families is very fierce. The Mu family has not produced any special talents in these years. The reason why Mu Lianping took the risk of taking the spirit flame fruit was because Yang Lengxue, who was engaged to Mu Lianping, disliked Mu Lianping for being too weak and couldn’t even take twenty moves from her.
Yang Lengxue was born in the Yang family, one of the four major families of ancient martial arts, with a cold temperament and stunning appearance. At a young age, the level of ancient martial arts has reached a very high level, it is said that even the elders of the Yang family are not her opponents.
A month ago, Yang Lengxue broke into Mu’s house directly, forcing Mu Lianping to duel with her, and threatened that if Mu Lianping couldn’t take even twenty of her moves, then he is a waste and not qualified to be her partner, the result, Mu Lianping was defeated.
There is a special method in the Mu family, which can check whether the children of the Mu family are suitable for eating the spirit flame fruit. Mu Lianping is not qualified to eat it. However, this test can sometimes be wrong. Therefore, after being defeated by Yang Lengxue, Mu Lianping still took the risk of taking the spirit flame fruit.
Unfortunately, it was a complete failure!
Thinking about what happened to his grandson, Xu Yuanqing was furious, but there was nothing he could do. Yang Lengxue wanted to withdraw from the marriage, why choose such an insulting means?
“I saw a video about Ye Fan jumping off a building, I wonder if it’s true,” Xu Yuanqing asked.
Bai Shiyuan nodded and said, “That one is true.”
“Why would he do that? To practice?” Xu Yuanqing asked, puzzled.
“Because a ghost child likes to jump off buildings, Ye Fan had to jump with him in order to send that brat to reincarnation,” Bai Shiyuan said.
“Ye Fan can jump from such a high place, but he is unscathed, his strength should not be low!” Xu Yuanqing said.
Bai Shiyuan nodded and said, “It’s not low, Ye Fan has also killed foreign super soldiers before. Some time ago, there was an accident in the Palace of Kings of Hell, a famous international killer group, the West King died. That was Ye Fan’s work.”
Xu Yuanqing widened his eyes and said, “He is so powerful.”
He has also heard of the West King of the Palace of Kings of Hell. This guy’s ancient martial arts level should be close to that of the Mu family’s elder. This person was actually taken out by Ye Fan. Ye Fan is only how old ah?
Bai Shiyuan nodded and said, “I don’t know much about ancient martial arts, but he seems to be very powerful.”
That Song Pingyuan of the Song family was the one who let Ye Fan finish him off, and the Song family was now on the verge of being exhausted.
Although the Bai family has a big business, the ancient martial arts practitioners are outside the law. If Ye Fan forced him to buy and sell, Bai Shiyuan would be helpless.
Bai Shiyuan nodded and said, “Ye Fan’s character is actually quite good, and his ability is also good. He doesn’t have any major shortcomings, he just owes a beating.”
Xu Yuanqing: “…”

Inside the villa.
Zhang Xuan looked at Mu Lianping and said in displeasure, “Young Master Mu, you’re not leaving?”
Mu Lianping glanced at Zhang Xuan and said, “I’m waiting for Young Master Ye to treat me. How about Young Master Zhang, don’t you have something to be busy with?”
Zhang Xuan crossed his arms and said lazily, “I’m not busy!”
Mu Lian said calmly, “I’m not busy either.”
Zhang Xuan frowned, feeling a little depressed in his heart.
Ye Fan’s talismans and magic weapons have always been bought by him the most. Now, for no reason, there is a competitor like Mu Lianping.
Ye Fan has been tossing around with some formations recently, and he has no time to draw talismans or make tools, it is really annoying to have such a person grabbing it!
A strong scent of medicinal pills spread out, and Zhang Xuan and Mu Lianping stood up at the same time.
Zhang Xuan’s eyes widened, such a strong scent of medicinal pills is definitely a good thing! Ye Fan is really amazing. He does talismans, formations, and alchemy.
Ye Fan opened the door and saw Zhang Xuan and Mu Lianping.
“Why are you two standing here, you startle me,” Ye Fan said displeased.
“Young Master Ye, what good things did you make this time?” Zhang Xuan thickened his face and asked curiously.
“It’s nothing, it’s just a great recovery pill to replenish Yunxi’s body,” Ye Fan said lightly.
“Great recovery pill, that thing is a big supplement! Ordinary people can’t eat it! Sell it to me,” Zhang Xuan said.
Mu Lianping hurriedly said, “Young Master Ye, you set a price and I’ll buy it.”
Ye Fan waved his hand and said, “Go, go, I don’t have enough to eat. For the time being, I won’t sell it.”
Zhang Xuan sighed with regret.
Ye Fan’s eyes swept around the two of them, and his eyes stopped on Mu Lianping, “If you use that fruit for it, I can exchange it for you.”
Mu Lianping was silent for a moment, frowning, turned his head and looked at Zhang Xuan, “Fellow Daoist Zhang, can you please excuse yourself?”
Zhang Xuan pouted and said displeasedly, “Okay, you guys talk.”
“Young Master Ye, I see that you like that fruit so much. Actually, the people in my Mu family will have lot of casualties after eating this fruit. If outsiders eat it, it’s basically a dead end,” Mu Lianping reminded.
Ye Fan raised his eyebrows, secretly guessing that Mu Lianping’s ancestors might have had some fire spiritual root cultivators with good qualifications. Because of the inheritance of blood, there are many fire spiritual root owners in the Mu family. However, with the continuous inheritance, the descendants’ bloodlines are becoming more and more complex, and there are fewer and fewer fire spiritual root owners.
However, he can definitely take it, he has all kinds of spiritual roots! “Don’t worry about this, I’m definitely not going to die.”
Mu Lianping frowned. During this time, he stayed in the villa and observed Ye Fan’s ability to determine whether he needed to reach a cooperation with Ye Fan.
Over the years, the talents of the Mu family have withered away, and their status in the ancient martial arts families has been greatly reduced. If it were changed a hundred years ago, when the Mu family was in full swing, the woman Yang Lengxue would never dare to break into the Mu residence. And after defeating himself, disregard the face of the Mu family, and trample himself underfoot.
Thinking of Yang Lengxue, Mu Lianping couldn’t help but feel a bit of hatred in his heart.
“The effect of spirit flame fruit is very big, but I don’t know how big the effect of this great recovery pill is?” Mu Lianping asked.
Ye Fan thought for a while, poured out two medicinal pills, and said: “These two spirit flame fruits are exchanged for ten great recovery pills. I’ll let you borrow these, and after trying the medicinal pill, if you are unwilling to exchange them, then you will pay me back twenty million.”
Mu Lianping was overjoyed and said, “Okay.”
Mu Lianping had seen a lot of medicinal pills, but he still had a good eye. This medicinal pill was a good thing at first sight. Buying it for 10 million a piece is definitely a profit.
As for whether the clan is willing to use the spirit flame fruit in exchange, he doesn’t know. However, Mu Lianping thinks that the clan elders should be willing to exchange. In the past few years, the cultivators born in the Mu family, there was almost no one who can take the spirit flame fruit. Several masters of the Mu family were paralyzed because of taking the spirit flame fruit, and the spirit flame fruit has become more and more useless to the Mu family.
Mu Lianping brought the medicinal pill back to the Bai family.
“This medicinal pill, Ye Fan gave you?” Xu Yuanqing asked.
Mu Lianping nodded and said, “This is the sample he gave me!”
Xu Yuanqing looked at the elixir and said, “Amazing! I didn’t expect that Ye Fan was not only strong, but also so good at refining pills. I can’t compare to him, I can’t refine this pill.”
Mu Lianping looked at Xu Yuanqing and said, “Grandpa, maybe Ye Fan is good at refining this kind of medicine pill.”
Xu Yuanqing waved his hand and said, “You don’t need to comfort me. In fact, I saw the Shiquan dabu pills that Ye Fan gave to Old Bai. The ratios are almost perfect. Anyone can take it and there are no side effects. It’s amazing!”
“Zhang Xuan of Longhu Mountain has been staying with Ye Fan. I think the Longhu Mountain may have a cooperation with Ye Fan,” Mu Lianping said.
“I heard Old Bai said that the West King died in Ye Fan’s hands. If this is true, then Ye Fan might really be able to break through to the Innate,” Xu Yuanqing said with a sigh full of emotion.
Mu Lianping did not speak. It was rumored that Zhang Sanfeng had broken through to the Innate for hundreds of years, and after that, no one could do it again.
For Ye Fan…it’s possible!
“Patriarch, what’s wrong?” Mu Shiyu asked.
“In Mu Lianping’s letter, Lianping said that he found someone outside to cure his illness, and wanted us to send Elder Mu Ke out and hand it over to that person for treatment,” Mu Feng said.
“Lianping really has his illness under control? Is Daoist Master Xu’s medical skill so strong?” Mu Shiyu asked excitedly.
Mu Ke is the elder of the Mu family. He was originally a peerless expert. Two years ago, because of his inability to break through, Mu Ke took the risk of taking the spirit flame fruit, which caused him to become paralyzed.
Mu Feng shook his head and said, “It’s not Daoist Master Xu, it’s another person.”
Mu Shiyu frowned and said, “Patriarch, in this case, I will take Uncle Mu Ke out.”
After Mu Ke took the spirit flame fruit, the fire poison would flare up every few days, and he would attack like crazy. If not for Mu Ke’s high cultivation, he would have been dead. The younger generation is very sympathetic to the elders who suffer like this.
Mu Feng frowned and said, “Alright, Lianping said that the person who treated him also had a medicine similar to Shaolin’s Great Recovery Pill. This medicine is very good for improving one’s cultivation. The medicinal pill, Lianping has already had someone send it, I just don’t know if it’s so magical.”
“Patriarch, when will the stuff arrive?” Mu Shiyu asked.
Mu Feng frowned and said, “It should be soon.”
“Patriarch, Young Master Lianping has a package delivered,” a guard said.
Mu Shiyu said with a strange face: “Did Lianping send the medicine pill by express? He is not afraid of accidents?”
Mu Feng opened the layers of packages, and finally found two medicinal pills, and a refreshing medicinal fragrance suddenly jumped into the noses of the two of them.
Mu Feng’s eyes lit up and said, “Good stuff!”
Ye Fan frowned, holding his chin in displeasure, sitting in Bai Yunxi’s office.
Bai Yunxi glanced at Ye Fan, and said puzzledly, “Are you in a bad mood?”
“Mu Lianping and Zhang Xuan are both staying in my villa, occupying the mountain as the king, and still not paying the rent,” Ye Fan said angrily.
Bai Yunxi said puzzledly: “If you are not happy, just drive them away.”
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “That won’t work, those two are big customers, and I have to rely on them to make a fortune…”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
“I heard that you and Daoist Master Xu made some shady transactions?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “No, no! Don’t you know me yet? I’m very honest. My business is clean. How could I do a shady transaction?”
“Really?” Bai Yunxi sneered. Where is this guy Ye Fan honest?
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes! Yes!”
Bai Yunxi: “…What kind of deal did you make with Daoist Master Xu?”
Ye Fan said with a bitter face, full of displeasure: “It’s nothing! It’s just that your brother told me that Daoist Master Xu’s words are very useful, and your grandfather listens to him very much, so I let him help me persuade your grandfather to settle our marriage as soon as possible. But this old man is too old to speak, and I lost a lot of money.”
Bai Yunxi: “…” After proposing paying in installments, Ye Fan made another cheap trick!
“Can you stop doing that?” Bai Yunxi said angrily.
Ye Fan looked at Bai Yunxi innocently and said, “Then you marry me! If you marry me, I will stop!”
Bai Yunxi glanced at Ye Fan, pondered for a moment, and said, “Since that’s the case, let’s arrange an engagement first.”
Ye Fan blinked his eyes, and after a long while, he came back to his senses and said, “Ah! You’ve agreed?”
Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Fan, whose eyes were shining, and nodded his head.
Ye Fan walked to Bai Yunxi’s side with some excitement and carried Bai Yunxi up.
Bai Yunxi said angrily, “Let go.”
Ye Fan had to reluctantly put Bai Yunxi on the sofa.
“I already promised, what about your bride price preparations?”
Ye Fan smiled and said, “I’ve thought about this for a long time.”
Ye Fan took out a box and opened it to show Bai Yunxi.
Bai Yunxi frowned and said, “Aren’t these the jade pendants you said you wanted to sell?”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes! Yes! These jade pendants are worth 10 billion yuan. However, the people I met recently are all too poor, they were only happy to buy a few. So I thought of another way, I’ll give these to your grandfather directly as a bride price ah! Let your grandfather take it to sell, I think the old man is quite idle, so I just find something for him to do.”
Bai Yunxi: “…you are really smart.”
Ye Fan smiled and said, “Of course!”
Bai Yunxi: “…” Things are precious because they are rare, does this guy Ye Fan understand that? It is true that this batch of jade pendants is a good thing, but with so many all at once, how can they be sold?
Jiang Chengyi sighed and said, “It’s a pity, this time, the old man from the Bai family has the upper hand!”
Jiang Shuya frowned and said, “Let Ye Fan solve the problems that Daoist Xu Yuanqing couldn’t solve. Could it be that Ye Fan’s medical skills are better than Xu Yuanqing?”
“This guy, Ye Fan, does have something special. People from the national special team wanted to recruit Ye Fan, but they were rejected,” Jiang Chengyi shook his head and said.
“This guy Ye Fan is really big,” Jiang Shuya couldn’t help saying.
“This guy, Ye Fan, may be holding a grudge. Someone proposed to let Ye Fan join in before, but the higher ups rejected it, saying that Ye Fan’s character is not up to the standard.” However, with the exposure of Ye Fan’s ability, the higher ups’ opinion seems to have changed.
Jiang Shuya said with some regret, “This guy, Ye Fan, is dead set on Bai Yunxi, so it’s impossible to pull him in.”
“That damned old man of the Bai family has such good luck,” Jiang Chengyi said with jealousy.
A strange look flashed in Jiang Shuya’s eyes.
“The Song family has recently entered another provincial governor, and it is estimated that it is going to fall.”
Jiang Shuya shook her head, the Song family’s downfall was already doomed. The century-old clan was overthrown overnight, and the fuse seemed to be Ye Fan, this Ye Fan really couldn’t be offended.
