Chapter 114 – The Happy Ye Fan
Ye Fan returned to the villa full of excitement. As soon as Ye Fan returned to the villa, he danced a tap dance, which scared both Mu Lianping and Zhang Xuan.
“Young Master Ye, what made you so happy?”
Ye Fan sat down on the sofa beside him and said, “Yunxi promised me to get engaged!”
Mu Lianping: “…” Third Young Master Bai is really a good person!
“First get engaged, then get married, I have to prepare well,” Ye Fan said happily.
Ye Fan picked up the phone and called Wu Sihan.
“Hey, cousin, I’m about to get engaged!”
“Engagement partner? Of course, it’s Third Young Master Bai! I’m such a dedicated person, how could I easily change my mind, why are you asking such a stupid question?”
“Forced? I didn’t force him! Your cousin, I, is such a sought-after person, there is no need to force! Forcing is such a cheap tactic!”
“I’m not kidding, I’m not kidding, I’ll be a married person soon, not a single dog.”
Mu Lianping: “…”
Zhang Xuan: “…”
Ye Fan put down his mobile phone with a frown, Zhang Xuan looked at Ye Fan and smiled, “Young Master Ye, you are getting engaged to Third Young Master Bai, congratulations!”
Ye Fan put his hands on his back, smiled brilliantly, and said, “Well, when the time comes, you have to come ah! So that you can share a little bit of my happiness.”
Zhang Xuan hurriedly said, “Definitely, definitely.”
Ye Fan restrained his smile and said solemnly, “Remember to prepare generous gifts.”
Zhang Xuan: “…” This is what Ye Fan really wanted to say.
Zhang Xuan nodded and said, “Okay, then, I will definitely prepare a generous gift!”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Very good, very good.”
Zhang Xuan: “…”
Ye Fan turned his head and looked at Mu Lianping. Mu Lianping smiled awkwardly and said, “I will also give gifts.”
Ye Fan nodded in satisfaction.
Zhang Xuan: “…”
“As long as you remember to give gifts, it’s okay if you are too busy to come by then!” Ye Fan said.
Zhang Xuan: “…”
Mu Lianping: “…”

“Yunxi, I heard from Young Master Mu, you promised Ye Fan to get engaged first, have you thought about it?” Bai Yunjin looked at Bai Yunxi and asked.
Bai Yunjin was a little tangled in his heart. He actually learned the news that Bai Yunxi and Ye Fan were getting engaged from an outsider.
Bai Yunxi nodded and said, “Yes.”
“You aren’t doing it for Daoist Master Xu?” Bai Yunjin asked.
Bai Yunxi raised his head and looked at Bai Yunjin, a bit of mockery flashed in his eyes, “Big brother, in your mind, am I such a self-sacrificing person?”
Bai Yunjin: “…” His younger brother doesn’t seem to be that kind.
“You think too much.”
Bai Yunjin: “…”
“Anyway, I will accept Ye Fan sooner or later. Since it is the same sooner or later, I’ll accept him earlier to save him from making some crooked ideas,” Bai Yunxi said.
Bai Yunjin couldn’t help but think of Daoist Xu Yuanqing. He asked Ye Fan afterward. This guy Ye Fan told him everything very “frankly”. This guy Ye Fan showed him the script generously. He also complained that Xu Yuanqing could not speak, and he suffered a big loss.
Inside the villa.
“Young Master Ye, here are the medicinal materials I found for the Meridian Renewal Pill you mentioned,” Mu Lianping said.
Ye Fan glanced at it and said excitedly, “You’re really efficient! You actually found them all.”
Mu Lianping frowned. There are hundreds of medicinal materials for the Meridian Renewal Pill that Ye Fan listed. Mu Lianping knew very well that among them, there should be many medicinal materials that were not for refining Meridian Renewal Pill. Ye Fan definitely hid some, however, it is common for alchemists to carry private goods with them. If they ask others for it, Mu Lianping will also pretend not to know.
“It’s still useful to use my grandfather’s face,” Mu Lianping said.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “I don’t know what’s going on with people nowadays, they just believe in those old men with long beards. Such a genius like me, being recognized as a liar by others, it’s ridiculous!”
Mu Lianping: “…”
“Young Master Ye, when can we start alchemy?” Mu Lianping asked.
Ye Fan moved his eyes and said, “Since the herbs are all ready, we can start now. I’ll start the furnace. In two days, I have to prepare for the engagement. By then, I won’t be free.”
Mu Lianping nodded and said, “Right, right, start the furnace first. Young Master Ye, hurry up and settle all the trivial matters, and then, focus on preparing for the engagement.” Mu Lianping spent more than twenty years of hard work, but now, he doesn’t even have a trace of spiritual energy. How can his heart not be anxious? Hearing that Ye Fan said that the furnace would be opened immediately, Mu Lianping was immediately overjoyed.
Zhang Xuan: “…”
Ye Fan’s elixir was quickly refined, and Ye Fan threw the elixir to Mu Lianping, who hurriedly took it.
Ye Fan put his hands on his back, facing Mu Lianping, and said with a very lofty demeanor: “There are three medicinal pills in it. According to my estimation, you can almost recover after taking two of them. If you are afraid of problems, just take them all.”
Mu Lianping asked curiously, “Young Master Ye, will there be any problem if I take more than the amount of medicinal pills?”
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “It won’t be a problem, it’s just a waste.”
Mu Lianping nodded when he heard the words.
Mu Lianping came out of Ye Fan’s place, returned to Bai’s house, and found Xu Yuanqing immediately.
“This is the meridian renewal pill refined by Ye Fan?” Xu Yuanqing asked.
Mu Lianping nodded and said, “Yes.”
“This medicine pill seems to be very good,” Xu Yuanqing said.
Mu Lianping nodded and said, “Since that’s the case, I’ll take it and see!”
Xu Yuanqing nodded and said, “Alright.”
Mu Lianping swallowed the medicinal pill, and the medicinal power instantly dissipated. A gentle medicinal power spread through his body, and Mu Lianping’s damaged meridians were instantly connected.
“How do you feel?” Xu Yuanqing asked.
Mu Lianping moved his hands and feet, and said excitedly: “Very good! I seem to be able to use spiritual energy again.”
When Xu Yuanqing heard the words, he was overjoyed, “It’s good that it’s restored, it’s good that it’s restored.”
Mu Lianping was a little surprised when he received the message from Mu Shiyu.
“Grandpa, the patriarch…”
Xu Yuanqing looked at Mu Lianping and said, “What’s wrong?”
Mu Lianping said a little excitedly: “Patriarch has come over in person.”
Xu Yuanqing couldn’t help being a little surprised. Under normal circumstances, the ancient martial arts family like the Mu family would not enter the city. Now, the head of the Mu family, Mu Feng, actually came out.
“Your Patriarch, why did he suddenly come out of the mountain?”
“It seems to be because of the medicine pill.” The medicine pill he couriered back seems to be very effective. Although the spirit flame fruit is precious, if you are not lucky, consuming it is also in vain.
Because over the years in the Mu family, there has been no one suitable to take the fruit, so the fruit should have a surplus.
Rather than letting these spirit flame fruits hide until it’s moldy, it is better to take them out and exchange them with Ye Fan for the Great Recovery Pill.
The Mu family has come to a very dangerous situation. If it continues to decline like this, it will be impossible to keep the spirit flame fruit tree. Ye Fan is not well-known now. If other people know Ye Fan’s value, by then, it may not be their turn to cooperate with Ye Fan.
A few days after Mu Lianping received the news, the Bai family welcomed several distinguished guests.
Bai Shiyuan welcomed the guests of the Mu family very warmly.
Soon after being sent to Bai’s residence, Mu Ke fell ill, and Mu Lianping had to hurriedly send the person to Ye Fan’s villa.
Ye Fan put his hands on his back, frowned at the person who was sent to the villa, and said with displeasure, “I’m about to get engaged soon, and you are still dragging people to me.”
Mu Lianping looked at Ye Fan and said flatteringly: “Isn’t this an emergency? Young Master Ye, isn’t it easy for you to help with the treatment? Besides, Young Master Ye, you can absorb the medicinal power of my uncle, and you still improve your cultivation. You are not at a loss!”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes, I need to become more powerful.”
Ye Fan secretly said: If Bai Yunxi’s physique exploded, it would freeze everyone around him into ice sculptures. If he wasn’t strong enough, he might not be able to withstand it.
Ye Fan glanced at Mu Ke, who was lying on the bed. Mu Ke’s cultivation base was already around the eighth level of Acquired. If he was in his prime, Ye Fan would not necessarily be an opponent. But this person’s meridians are seriously damaged by the spirit flame fruit, and his current strength is not enough for Ye Fan to worry about.
Ye Fan stretched out his hand and absorbed the medicinal power in Mu Ke’s body.
The situation between Mu Ke and Mu Lianping is similar, but somewhat different. Because of the time, the medicinal power in Mu Ke’s body is more chaotic, and the damage to the meridians is also higher than that of Mu Lianping. However, Mu Ke’s cultivation is high, if he was a little bit weaker, he would not be able to stand it.
Mu Ke’s situation was quickly relieved, and Mu Lianping was relieved to see Mu Ke calm down.
Mu Shiyu pulled Mu Lianping aside and said, “Who is this Ye Fan? When did such a powerful person appear in the ancient martial arts world?”
When Mu Shiyu received Mu Lianping’s letter, he was still a little skeptical. However, seeing that Ye Fan’s shot could really cure the medicinal power, there was always an unreal feeling. If he had met such a person earlier, why would his uncle suffer so many years of torture?
Mu Lianping shook his head and said, “I don’t know Ye Fan very well either, but this guy seems to be very powerful.”
Mu Shiyu said suspiciously, “Really?”
Mu Lianping looked at Mu Shiyu and said, “Cousin, you wouldn’t want to find him to spar, right?” Mu Shiyu was a martial arts nerd, and Mu Lianping was really a little worried about Mu Shiyu and Ye Fan fighting.
Mu Shiyu smiled and said, “How is that possible?”
“Ye Fan, have you thought about the day you and Yunxi will get engaged?” Bai Yunjin asked.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “I’ve thought about it, and I’ll choose the nearest auspicious day. It’s better sooner rather than later, a long delay may cause complications.”
Bai Yunjin looked at Ye Fan and said, “The nearest auspicious day will arrive in half a month, won’t it be too urgent?”
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “No, no! It’s just right.”
Bai Yunjin looked at Ye Fan and said, “In that case, you and Yunxi should prepare first. If you need anything, you can call me.”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Okay, I’m very capable, I can handle it, I shouldn’t need you.”
Bai Yunjin smiled and said, “It’s naturally best if you can handle it all by yourself.”
Inside the villa.
“Young Master Ye, you’re looking for me?” Cai Zhenjun looked at Ye Fan and asked curiously.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes, I’m here to find you, I have something to ask you for help.”
Cai Zhenjun asked curiously, “What’s the matter?”
“Yunxi and I are about to get engaged, and I don’t know how to get engaged, you can give me some pointers,” Ye Fan said.
“Engagement ah! Then you need to organize a big event, and then invite a bunch of people to eat, drink, and greet each other.”
“Package a big place, where do you think I should go? Where do you think is big and cheap?” Ye Fan asked.
Cai Zhenjun said somewhat puzzled: “Young Master Ye, are you short of money?”
This guy, Ye Fan, his ability to hold money is first-class, so is he still short of money?
Ye Fan frowned and said, “The engagement is to pay the bride price, once the bride price is paid, won’t there be no money?”
Cai Zhenjun: “…”
Cai Zhenjun rolled his eyes and said, “In that case, you should call Dingfeng’s boss, Wang Jingshi! He is in the hotel business, so let him find a place for you. Doesn’t he have a relationship with you?”
Ye Fan thought for a while and said, “Ah! It makes sense! That guy is quite superstitious. When the time comes, I will give him a few jade pendants to pay off the debt.”
Cai Zhenjun: “…”
“Young Master Ye, these few days, there seem to be a few strange people coming in and out of your place?” Cai Zhenjun asked.
“Yeah! People from Longhu Mountain and Mu family often come to visit me. Those guys jump over the wall! The property management can’t control them. Because I want to get engaged, I don’t have time to take care of them, so I just blew them all away,” Ye Fan said.
Cai Zhenjun said in surprise: “Jumping over the wall? That group of security guards actually couldn’t find out? We pay so much property fees, it’s all for nothing, I’m going to complain about it…”
Ye Fan waved his hand and said, “It’s no wonder, that group of security guards are all ordinary people, and those who jumped the wall are ancient martial arts practitioners.”
Cai Zhenjun was shocked and said: “Ancient martial artists, that’s amazing!”
Ye Fan pursed his lips and said, “Just so-so!”
Ye Fan didn’t care about the Mu family, but other big bosses were not the same.
In the past two days, the Bai family was in a crowded environment, and several members of the Mu family received gifts with helpless hands.
There was a knock on the door, Ye Fan frowned, got up, opened the door, and invited someone in.
“Looking for me? What’s the matter? I just extracted the medicinal power for you. Next session is after three days, you should go back first,” Ye Fan said lazily to Mu Ke.
“Young Master Ye, I want to talk to you about the Meridian Renewal Pill.”
Mu Ke was tortured by the spirit flame fruit for many years, his meridians were severely damaged, and his cultivation had regressed greatly. Originally, Mu Ke already felt lucky to have his life back, but seeing Mu Lianping alive and well, Mu Ke had other thoughts.
Mu Lianping also took the spirit flame fruit, but this guy had better luck than him. Not long after taking it, he found Ye Fan to save his life. Moreover, Xu Yuanqing took advantage of Bai Shiyuan’s relationship to exchange a bunch of Meridian Renewal Pills with Ye Fan. Relying on medicinal pills to warm up, Mu Lianping’s ancient martial arts level not only did not decline, but improved.
“Meridian Renewal Pill? This matter has been cleared up! I’ve already given the pills to Mu Lianping, and the payment has been made,” Ye Fan said.
Mu Ke frowned and said, “I want to ask you to help me refine another Meridian Renewal Pill!”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Okay, the medicinal materials are taken care of by you, my charge for refining it is 100 million.”
Mu Ke looked at Ye Fan and said embarrassedly, “Can you make it cheaper?”
With the development of the times, some hidden families chose to join the big families, developed some industries, and made a lot of money.
Some are in a corner, isolated from the world, and practice with all their hearts.
The Mu family has been away from the world for many years and has no money, so the family members of the Mu family are very frugal.
The reason why Mu Lianping was able to pay Ye Fan’s shot fee was entirely due to Xu Yuanqing.
Ye Fan frowned and said displeased: “No way, 100 million yuan is my friendly price. I’m about to get engaged to Bai Yunxi, and by then, my value will skyrocket immediately.”
Mu Ke: “…”
Ye Fan looked at Mu Ke, thought for a while, and said, “Shouldn’t there be still one pill in Mu Lianping’s hands? Last time, I gave him three pills. In his situation, taking two pills is enough.”
“He… ate it all,” Mu Ke said with a bitter face.
Ye Fan shook his head and said helplessly, “There’s no way then.”
Mu Ke thought for a while and said, “If you give me the Meridian Renewal Pill, how about I be your bodyguard for three years?”
Ye Fan smiled coldly and said, “Who are you kidding me? A peerless master like me, where do I need bodyguards? At that time, who will protect who will be uncertain.”
Mu Ke said displeased: “Fellow Daoist, you are not young, but your tone is not small!”
Ye Fan laughed and said, “I’m a bold man with high skills!”
Mu Ke: “…”
Mu Shiyu walked into Mu Lianping’s room and said, “Uncle Mu Ke is back, he doesn’t seem very happy.”
Mu Lianping said with some puzzlement: “Unhappy? Uncle Mu Ke’s illness has been resolved, how can he be unhappy?”
“It seems that he went to find that guy Ye Fan to ask for the Meridian Renewal Pill, but it should be unsuccessful,” Mu Shiyu said.
Mu Lianping frowned and said, “If you want something from Young Master Ye, you need a lot of money!”
This guy, Ye Fan, recognizes money but not people. Of course, it also depends on who the person is. Bai Yunxi is definitely recognized by him.
“It’s your fault, too. Why did you eat all the pills? Didn’t you say that taking two pills and taking three pills are just the same?” Mu Shiyu said.
Mu Lianping said a little embarrassedly: “But if I didn’t eat it, I wouldn’t know about it!”
Mu Shiyu shook his head and said, “Forget it, let’s find a way to make 100 million. Lianping, do you know any way to make money quickly?”
“This ah? I heard that some ancient martial arts practitioners committed murder to get easy money, while some opened companies. However, I am afraid that no one in our Mu family has such business acumen. Sell antiques! It’s quick to get money.”
Mu Shiyu frowned and said, “Our Mu family has some antiques, but those are the lifeblood of the old man and cannot be sold.”
Mu Lianping frowned and said, “Otherwise, I’ll discuss with my grandfather and borrow some from him.”
Mu Shiyu frowned and said embarrassedly, “How embarrassing is that! The old man has already helped a lot.”
“Young Master Ye is very interested in the spirit flame fruit, but I don’t know if the Patriarch is willing to give it up,” Mu Lianping said.
Mu Shiyu narrowed his eyes and said, “I’ll go talk to the Patriarch.”
