You Cannot Afford To Offend My Woman: Chapter 219 – Sound out others’ feelings 2/2
Xiao Yi slowly closed his eyes, then said, “Seems like they intend on massacring my Xiao Family!”
“Big Brother Xiao, Xuan Yuan Sword is basically a problematic item to have right now, and as long as the Xuan Yuan Sword is not in your hands, they won’t be able to do anything towards you, after all, their target is the ancient godly item, and not you, Big Brother Xiao.”
Xiao Yi opened his eyes, and gloominess was leaking out from his eyes, “Wushuang, what do you think big brother should do?”
This question of yours is basically what I wanted!
Tang Wushuang slightly leaned his body forward. From this, it could be seen just how much he was yearning for the Xuan Yuan Sword.
And this slight action of Tang Wushuang’s was seen clearly by Xiao Yi.
“Big Brother Xiao, right now, the situation is looking very grim for you, all of the small families and rich merchants have claimed that they have distanced themselves away from you. If Big Brother Xiao believes in me, Big Brother Xiao can hand over the Xuan Yuan Sword to me and let me temporarily safe keep the Xuan Yuan Sword for you.”
In actuality, Tang Wushuang had thought of lots of methods where he would be able to obtain the Xuan Yuan Sword, and at the same time, wouldn’t spoil the friendship between him and Xiao Yi.
After thinking of all kinds of methods, this is the only method that I can try. However, I am definitely going to get chide at by my master once he found out what I did.
If it was 10+ days ago, Xiao Yi would have most probably handed the Xuan Yuan Sword over to Tang Wushuang. But, right now…
It was impossible. And even more, Xiao Yi was able to perceive the intention of this close brother of his.
Xuan Yuan Sword was an ancient godly item, and regarding its might, there wasn’t a need to say too much about it. To be able to go against Death Mage’s Sickle of Death, and even cause a groove to appear on the Sickle of Death, it could be seen just how formidable the Xuan Yuan Sword was.
For such an ancient godly item like this, who wouldn’t want to possess it? If there wasn’t any restriction on the number of ancient godly items that each Aristocratic Family was allowed to possess, the Aristocratic Families would have long come over to Xiao Family and snatch the Xuan Yuan Sword away from Xiao Yi!
Amongst swords, Xuan Yuan Sword was the king. Therefore, it was no surprise that Xuan Yuan Sword would be something that even the Aristocratic Families would want to possess.
What Tang Wushuang just said was indeed pleasant to the ears, especially the words, temporarily safe keep the Xuan Yuan Sword for you.
If Xiao Yi had handed over the Xuan Yuan Sword to Tang Wushuang, it was reckoned that there wouldn’t be a possibility for Xiao Yi to get back the Xuan Yuan Sword from Tang Wushuang.
Xiao Yi sighed, “Wushuang, back then when I fought over this Xuan Yuan Sword, it was fortunate that you were there to help me hold back the enemies!”
Upon hearing what Xiao Yi said, Tang Wushuang became exulted.
“However! Xuan Yuan Sword is what that symbolizes my Xiao Family! Without the sword, Xiao Family wouldn’t be Xiao Family anymore! Wushuang, you should understand what I am trying to say, right?”
Xiao Yi did not want to bluntly point out what Tang Wushuang was trying to do and wanted to get Tang Wushuang to give up on the idea of trying to obtain the Xuan Yuan Sword. This way, he and Tang Wushuang would still be able to continue on being brothers.
However, Tang Wushuang didn’t think the same way as Xiao Yi did.
Back then, if not for me helping you, would you have been able to obtain the Xuan Yuan Sword for yourself!
You are already in such a dire situation, and yet you still want to keep the Xuan Yuan Sword to yourself! Do you really not believe in me at all!
The more Tang Wushuang thought about it, the more indignant he felt.
Originally, Xiao Family and Tang Family were on the same starting line. However, because Xiao Family managed to obtain the Xuan Yuan Sword, Xiao Family’s position immediately surpassed Tang Family’s position.
Everyone all thinks that I am Xiao Yi’s underling, Xiao Yi's henchman.
Such bitterness like that, I am fine with bearing with it. After all, back then when I was still weak, it was Big Brother Xiao who extended out a hand to me and helped me.
However, at such a time like this, he is still trying to protect his Xuan Yuan Sword!
Tang Wushuang was very indignant as he thought to himself, “What master said is right, on the path towards power and wealth, only benefits matter!”
“Big Brother Xiao, if you still don’t make a decision right now, once those people arrive, Wushuang wouldn’t be able to help you anymore!” Tang Wushuang said while with his brows tightly wrinkled. And hearing from Tang Wushuang’s tone, there was actually threatening within his tone!
This caused Xiao Yi to become very hurt.
This world is filled with various kinds of benefits and enticements, and originally, I thought that Tang Wushuang would be able to walk to the end of the journey with me. However, from the looks of it, Tang Wushuang isn’t able to endure the enticement of the Xuan Yuan Sword.
“Wushuang, I appreciate your offer to help, but I am going to have to reject your offer. Later on, whatever that you should do, you can go ahead and do it!” Xiao Yi sighed. From the looks of it, today is going to be the day where us brothers are going to have a fall out with each other!
“Oh~ Isn’t this Young Master Tang? I didn’t expect Young Master Tang to come so early.”
A young man could be seen walking into the main hall from the outside. The young man wore a white color tank top, exposing out those explosive muscles of his. Those muscles of his were very sexy.
The sideburns on the young man’s face added an extra manliness to the young man, and the young man’s features were pretty good looking.
This young man was called Ling Tian, and he was Ling Family’s family head. Ling Family was a family that was located in the northeast.
Ling Tian’s goal for coming over here was very obvious.
Obtain the Xuan Yuan Sword!
So that he could then obtain the qualification to rise to the ranks of the Aristocratic Families!
It has to be mentioned that, Ling Tian had come into contact with Xiao Yi and Tang Wushuang before. Back then, they helped each other out. Just that, because they weren’t situated in the same city, they didn’t come into contact with each other that much. However, their relationship could still be counted as pretty good.
“Ah, it’s Ling Tian. Come, have a seat. Shu Nan, pour a cup of tea for Ling Tian.” Although Xiao Yi was wearing a smile on his face, he wasn’t feeling comfortable in his heart. After all, asides from Tang Wushuang, Ling Tian could also be counted as his friend.
However, Xiao Yi didn’t expect that, because of a crisis, forget that his normal friends left him, right now, even his good brother and good friend are turning against him.
Right now, what Xiao Yi was doing was to sound out others’ true feelings.
“Brother Xiao, sisters-in-law.” Ling Tian cupped his hand and did not bluntly point out his reason for coming here.
Shu Nan smiled tenderly and said, “Ling Tian, have a seat.”
“Alright, sister-in-law.” Ling Tian appeared to be very forthright, and Ling Tian’s bright expression formed a great contrast when compared to Tang Wushuang’s current gloomy expression.
After drinking up the cup of tea Shu Nan poured for him, Ling Tian laughed, “Good tea, this tea is much better compared to the teas in my house.”
Shu Qi laughed, “If you think that the tea is good, I will prepare a few bags of tea leaves for you to bring back later on.”
“Sister-in-law, don’t, I am simply a rough person, I was only pretending just now. In actuality, the tea was very bitter… It would be a waste to give me the tea leaves.” Ling Tian laughed heartily, causing the tense atmosphere to ease up for a bit.
After pausing for a moment, Ling Tian asked curiously, “Brother Xiao, is this injury of yours serious?”
In the end, Ling Tian headed straight to the main topic…
