Chapter 129 — The Shattered Mirror
“Senior Sister, the person who attacked me today is too much,” Hu Xiangyu gritted her teeth.
Hu Xiangyu grew up in the Moon Palace, and under the influence of the Moon Palace elders, she developed an arrogant personality.
When Hu Xiangyu came out, she happened to see the national karate finals and snorted when she heard the audience praising the champion as the world’s number one master.
After finding an opportunity, Hu Xiangyu took advantage of that karate champion leaving alone and fought against that person once, resulting in an easy win. After this incident, Hu Xiangyu increasingly ignored ordinary people outside the sect.
However, the fact that she had suffered such a big loss on Ye Fan made Hu Xiangyu feel a bit uncomfortable.
Shi Yue glanced at Hu Xiangyu and said solemnly, “We can’t afford to provoke that person.”
Hu Xiangyu said displeasedly: “Senior Sister, you are too cowardly of others and destroying your own prestige. I’m not his opponent, could it be that Master can’t beat him?”
“The Yang family, one of the four great families of ancient martial arts, I think you should know?”
Hu Xiangyu nodded and said: “I know, the four great families of ancient martial arts are famous. I heard that the Yang family has developed prosperously in the past few years, the other three families have been left behind.”
“That was a few days ago. Ye Fan had friendship with Mu Lianping and taught Yang Lengxue of the Yang family a lesson for Mu Lianping. Yang Qianshan of the Yang family came out to avenge Yang Lengxue, but as a result, he was beaten and crippled by Ye Fan. The Yang family has lost a top-level expert, and the momentum has dropped a lot.”
Shi Yue paused and said again: “That Ye Fan is the one you met today, the one who attacked you. The Yang Qianshan of the Yang family has been ruined, you are not wronged to lose.”
“Senior Sister, is Ye Fan so powerful?” Hu Xiangyu asked suspiciously.
“Otherwise, why do you think the Bai family would marry their third young master to Ye Fan? The Bai family is willing to give up their grandson to a man as a wife in order to trap Ye Fan. However, Bai Yunxi is also capable enough to make Ye Fan obedient to him,” Shi Yue sneered.
Hu Xiangyu snorted softly and said, “Shameless. Senior Sister, is it because Ye Fan is so powerful, the vengeance for his beating me will not be avenged?”
“Master told us not to provoke him. It’s better not to have a conflict if we can,” Shi Yue said.
Hu Xiangyu frowned, with an unpleasant expression on her face, not sure if she had listened to Shi Yue’s words or not.
Ye Fan followed Xiao Chi to the place where the accident happened, “It’s here, when the ground was dug, a few migrant workers fainted.”
Ye Fan rolled his eyes and said, “There’s a dilapidated Gathering Yin Formation in this place. It’s been around for decades. I don’t know who set it up.”
“Gathering Yin Formation, what’s the use?” Xiao Chi asked.
Ye Fan shrugged, and said, “I don’t know!” Ye Fan secretly said: There are many Gu Masters, Spell Casting Masters, and Evil Feng Shui Masters here cultivating strange and mysterious methods. The gathering yin formation is dilapidated, it should not have been maintained for many years, the master who laid the formation may have died many years ago.
“Then how to solve it?”
“Small matter, I will just completely destroy this formation, and then let the leaders of the academy find those great dancers to do a few rituals,” Ye Fan said.
Xiao Chi nodded and said, “Okay.”
When Ye Fan returned to the villa, Bai Yunxi had already returned.
“Back?” Bai Yunxi glanced at Ye Fan and asked lazily.
Ye Fan held a large bucket of popcorn, nodded, and said, “Yes.”
“Where did you go? You came back so late?” Bai Yunxi tilted his head and asked.
“Hou An asked me to watch a very interesting, thought-provoking, and educational movie. It wasn’t bad,” Ye Fan said with an aftertaste.
“What is this movie called?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Bai Yunxi secretly said: Sure enough, this is another animated film. The full name of this movie should be Flying Pig Cultivating Immortality. In order to please Ye Fan, Hou An also lost a lot of blood from watching this kind of brain-dead movie with Ye Fan.
“Hou An’s business, did you take over?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Ye Fan blinked, and said with some guilty conscience: “Yes, it’s next.”
Ye Fan explained a little embarrassedly: “I originally wanted to inform you, but then I found out that the woman Hou An offended was a weak-brained chicken, and their sect was nothing special, so I thought, just accept it.”
“So, you think the other side is not enough to worry about so you took it?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes!”
“Is that so? I thought you took it because you wanted to hide your private money,” Bai Yunxi said slowly and methodically.
Ye Fan dodged and said, “How can I hide private money, I have turned it in, look at my two sleeves…”
Bai Yunxi waved his hand and said, “Forget it, it’s not a big deal for a man to hide private money. I have something to tell you…”
“Recently, there have been a lot of ancient martial artists gathered in Beijing. Ancient martial artists generally do not leave the mountain, but, as you know, that painting of Immortal Mountain has aroused the idea of many ancient martial artists to go to sea. There are dragons mixing with fishes in Beijing these days, so don’t go out,” Bai Yunxi said.
“Why?” Ye Fan asked.
Bai Yunxi shook his head and said, “You’re too good at causing trouble.”
Ye Fan: “I’m not!”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
Xiao Chi stayed in the apartment, looked at the pile of jade pendants on the table, and smiled silly.
“Old man, you’re looking at this again?” Mu Wan said helplessly.
“I have so many treasures! Tsk tsk, I’m really amazing. Madam, do you know that I’m very popular recently? Those who were originally arguing with me have been rushing to please me recently…” Xiao Chi said smugly.
Mu Wan shook her head and said, “What do you have to be proud of? It’s not you they want to see, but the jade pendant in your hand.”
Ye Fan had made a lot of noise before, and several professors at Beijing Academy knew that the rumors were true.
Ye Fan gave 2,000 self-defense jade pendants as a betrothal gift. I don’t know how it got out. Now, many people outside are staring at it.
“So what? These jade pendants are mine now,” Xiao Chi said proudly.
“Okay, just a few dozen jade pendants, you have to look at them several times every night. You, what virtue ah?” Mu Wan said displeased.
Xiao Chi said solemnly: “Many people are staring at my baby, of course I have to check it every day.”
Mu Wan: “…”
Xiao Chi and Mu Wan were talking, and the jade pendants on the table raised a ray of light. Dozens of rays of light gathered together and shot out of the window, and the glass window was shattered all at once.
Xiao Chi looked at this scene inexplicably, “What’s going on?”
Mu Wan frowned, and said: “Is it because you often take out these jade pendants to see, so the jade pendants showed some problems ah!”
“Impossible ah! There’s no such thing,” Xiao Chi said.
Xiao Chi walked to the window and looked left and right, and said, “Is there someone out there who is plotting against us, so the jade pendants automatically started a counterattack?”
Mu Wan said disapprovingly: “It probably won’t. The security of our community is very high.”
“It’s a bit late today, let’s talk about it tomorrow, I’ll ask Ye Fan tomorrow,” Xiao Chi thought for a while.
Xiao Chi was on vacation the next day. He was bored and took a walk in the community park downstairs.
There was nothing wrong all night, and the window was repaired, and Xiao Chi forgot about the glow of the jade pendants.
“Professor Xiao, do you know that something happened to our community last night?” An uncle of the neighborhood committee grabbed Xiao Chi with a heart full of gossip.
Xiao Chi asked curiously: “What happened? What happened?”
“There was a very young and beautiful woman who fell under a tree and fell into a coma. She was found in the morning and sent to the hospital for emergency treatment.”
“Who is it? From our community?” Xiao Chi asked curiously.
“It’s not from our community, she looks like she fell from a tree.”
Xiao Chi thought thoughtfully: “Could it be that the person who fell from the tree was a thief? What’s going on with the young girls now? They don’t do much hard work, and have to be a thief.”
“This girl is not like a normal thief,” the uncle of the neighborhood committee said mysteriously.
“She still holds a strange mirror in her hand, with a big hole in it. I took a picture and asked someone who knows the trades. It seems that the mirror is an antique or a feng shui tool. The woman may be a feng shui master who wants to ruin someone’s feng shui, but it seems that something happened, maybe it was backlashed,” said the uncle of the neighborhood committee.
Xiao Chi only took the words of the uncle of the neighborhood committee as gossip. Hearing this, he immediately thought of the glowing jade pendants, and a little bit of vigilance rose in his heart.
“Where is that girl now?”
“Sent to the hospital.”
Xiao Chi nodded, “Oh”. “Where’s the mirror?”
“The origin of the woman is unknown, so someone called the police, and the mirror was taken away by the police.”

“Officer Chen, what do you think this mirror is?”
Yesterday, Xiao Chi’s community reported an accident. Because the woman was suspected of stealing, they should have taken the woman back to the police station for questioning. Unfortunately, the woman was unconscious and was sent to the hospital for a checkup to find out what happened.
Chen Kelan groped for the mirror and said, “Experts say that this is an antique that is more than a thousand years old, but it’s a pity it’s damaged.”
“Officer Chen, what do you think the woman is doing in that community?”
Chen Kelan shrugged and said, “Who knows?”
Chen Kelan had some doubts that the woman was heading for Xiao Chi, because the woman fell under a big tree, and the big tree happened to be facing Xiao Chi’s apartment.
“Zhang Lin, you’re back, how is the situation at the hospital?” Chen Kelan asked curiously when she saw the police colleague who was taking care of the woman coming back.
“The person has been picked up.”
Chen Kelan frowned and said, “Weren’t you supposed to bring her back to make a record?”
Zhang Lin shook his head and said: “No, they have a backstage. They took the people away directly, and I couldn’t stop them.”
Chen Kelan said a little depressed: “This one has a backstage, that one has a backstage, do we still need to do our work?”
Zhang Lin smiled bitterly and said, “The capital city is full of powerful people, so our work is not easy to do!”
Chen Kelan: “…”
Zhang Lin looked at the mirror on the table and said, “By the way, this mirror! The above is looking for this mirror, let’s hand in the things quickly.”
Chen Kelan said with little interest: “Okay.”
