“Is the weather changing?”

Fang Chaozhou couldn’t help but hug his arms and looked up into the sky.

Xue Danrong’s line of sight remained on Fang Chaozhou’s right hand where the teeth marks sat.
Those teeth marks were obviously human-bit, not animal-made.

The more Fang Chaozhou stood there, the more he felt the cold air to be very heavy.
Then he promptly walked into the inn and said to Xue Danrong, “Youngest Shidi, thank you for opening the door for me, you hurry back and rest.”

“Earlier, Eldest Shixiong asked where Shixiong went.” Xue Danrong started to speak coldly. 

Fang Chaozhou locked the door while casually answering back: “The Gilded Cave.” After answering, he paused, “Oh, I forgot.
You probably don’t know what kind of place that is.”

He merely spoke thoughtlessly and thought that Xue Danrong’s curiosity was never that serious.  Rather than being not curious, it was more like he didn’t care about other people’s businesses.
However, he didn’t expect Xue Danrong to surprisingly ask him about it this time.

“The Gilded Cave? What kind of place is that?”

Fang Chaozhou locked the door and hesitated before saying, “A place to eat, drink, and be merry.”

“Second Shixiong.” Xue Danrong’s voice became very cold all of a sudden, “Master allowed us to come down to the mountain, not for us to come to eat, drink, and be merry.
If Shixiong continues to be like this, then I can only inform our Master.”

Fang Chaozhou turned around and looked at Xue Danrong’s frosty, beautiful face.
Actually, he did not know how he stirred up Xue Danrong’s unpleasantness.
However, seeing the other party so angry, he’ll just…… hurry and apologize.

Next time, I won’t go there anymore.”

A salted fish adapts to circumstances.

Xue Danrong did not speak and immediately turned around, walking away.
It seemed he wasn’t willing to speak one more word to Fang Chaozhou.
Fang Chaozhou let out a sigh of relief as he watched Xue Danrong’s back disappear in front of him.

He truly did not wish to stay together with this Youngest Shidi.
He even felt the air become thinner when he was with him.

Fang Chaozhou was ready for the big devil to knock on his door.
He had prepared to just hand over Youngest Shidi, but never thought that before the big devil knocked on his door, others would come to his door.

Fang Chaozhou finally opened his eyes with difficulty after the attack of Du Yunxi forcibly lifting his quilt and taking a cold towel to wipe his face.
At this moment, all that was in front of his eyes were blurred.
He could only hazily make out a person’s shadow in front of him, swaying.

“Fifth Shidi, is there an earthquake? Or a fire?” He asked, bewildered.

Du Yunxi sat down beside Fang Chaozhou’s bed.
During these days, he had experienced how lazy his family’s Second Shixiong was.
He directly helped him up and said, “Second Shixiong, a girl is looking for you!”

“Estimate? Estimate what? I don’t need to estimate anything.” Fang Chaozhou still wanted to fall down.

[T/N: Fang Chaozhou misheard “girl” as “estimate.” They sound similar in Chinese.]

Du Yunxi let out an “ai”, hesitated for a second, and couldn’t help firmly pinching his family’s Second Shixiong.
After an “ao” was heard, Fang Chaozhou’s eyes finally opened completely.
However, the pinched area instantly turned red.

Fang Chaozhou’s skin was already fair.
Nowadays, he’s gluttonous, lazy, and doesn’t like to go out.
He also ate the beauty pills Du Yunxi had gifted him like candy.
The more he ate, the more his body’s skin turned fairer and softer.
With only a firm pinch, that area reddened like peach blossoms in April. 

Fifth Shidi, why on earth did you pinch me?” Fang Chaozhou had a stunned expression like he had just woken in the middle of a nightmare.

Du Yunxi pursed his lips and ultimately just said, “Second Shixiong, you’ll know if you go downstairs and look for yourself.”

By the time Fang Chaozhou somewhat freshened up, he walked to the top of the stairs and saw a red-clothed beauty sitting across Eldest Shixiong.
His footsteps stopped instantly.

Du Yunxi walked behind Fang Chaozhou.
Seeing Fang Chaozhou’s footsteps stop, he also stopped his.
He lowered his voice, “That is the woman that came looking for Second Shixiong at right at the crack of dawn.
She said that there’s something she must say to Second Shixiong.
Eldest Shixiong accompanied her for quite a while and stubbornly didn’t ask anything, insisting that he would be allowed to only when you get here.”

After speaking, he deliberately scrutinized Fang Chaozhou’s complexion.

It seemed like usual. 

After listening to Du Yunxi’s words, he went downstairs at once.
Eldest Shixiong had good eyes and immediately spotted him when he got downstairs.
Straightaway, he opened his mouth and yelled, “Second Shidi, you come over here.”

Following those words, the beauty in red sitting on a stool also turned her head.
Precisely, she was the one who read the script to Fang Chaozhou for most of the night.
Miss Yiyi from the Gilded Cave. 

Just by seeing him, Miss Yiyi’s pink face carried tears, a lovely and pitiful face looking towards Fang Chaozhou.
She even stood up, slightly opened her red lips, and very sentimentally called out for Gongzi.

Fang Chaozhou blanked out for a second, “Ah?” He looked behind him and said with some uncertainty, “You’re calling for me?”

Miss Yiyi tearfully nodded, “Can Gongzi still remember this servant? A few days ago, Gongzi gave this servant a large sum of silver in the Gilded Cave.”

As soon as these words came out, the people present all looked at Fang Chaozhou somewhat strangely.
They all knew what kind of place was the Gilded Cave.
At the same time, most of them also knew of Fang Chaozhou’s erectile dysfunction illness.

“I remember, your reading voice is pretty good, but you suddenly coming here is……” After Fang Chaozhu found out from Li Zhu this Yiyi girl may not be a person easy to deal with, he was somewhat vigilant this time.

Above all, he and Miss Yiyi had only met once, as ordained by fate.
He didn’t think that just this one meeting ordained by fate could let the other party find his door.

How did she know he lived here?

Tianshui Sect had five peaks, and the disciples of each peak had a separate inn.
That night, Li Zhu certainly didn’t say which peak he belonged to.
In fact, Li Zhu also didn’t know which peak he belonged to.
What was even more strange is that Fang Chaozhou didn’t even divulge his surname that night.
How did this Yiyi girl tell his Shixiong and Shidi she wanted to find him?

Miss Yiyi took a silk handkerchief and wiped the tears on her face.
She humbly bowed her head.

She completely adopted a stance of being too frail to bear the weight of her clothes.
“Gongzi, to be quite honest, this servant only came to find Gongzi because this servant had no choice.
The Gilded Cave’s mother wanted to give me to a rich merchant surnamed Liu as a concubine.
He lives in the South of the city.

“Then congratulations to you”, Fang Chaozhou said without thinking.

Miss Yiyi’s hand that held the handkerchief quietly pinched tightly, but she very quickly proceeded to talk with a sobbing tone again, “Gongzi doesn’t know something.
That rich merchant surnamed Liu is already gradually getting old.
This servant is really unwilling and hopes that Gongzi has a few tender affections for this servant.”

Hearing this, Eldest Shixiong was somewhat unable to continue standing.
He coughed twice, “Miss Yiyi, my Second Shidi is a cultivator.
You’re an ordinary person.
Nevertheless, you guys are incompatible together.”

Miss Yiyi immediately said, “I didn’t dare to have the extravagant hope to be with Gongzi.
I only wanted to be by Gongzi’s side as a maid that does physical work, that’s all.”

Fang Chaozhou shook his head, “But I don’t need a maid that does physical work.”

Hearing that, Miss Yiyi immediately had a teardrop fall from her eye, delicate and pitiful.
If it was an ordinary man, perhaps he would be unable to bear it and hold her in his embrace, carefully comforting her.
However, everyone in the Tianshui Sect did not respond.

This was because they had a precious beauty——Youngest Shidi.

After seeing Youngest Shidi’s face, no matter how sweet and charming the beauties are, they all become withered red flowers after the rain, losing their color.

Only Xue Danrong could rely on his outer appearance to confuse everyone.

But letting a girl cry here is also not very good.
Eldest Shixiong thought for a bit and then conveyed a meaningful glance to Fang Chaozhou.
Fang Chaozhou didn’t understand what that glance meant until Eldest Shixiong lifted his finger to his eyes and made a  wiping gesture.
Only then did he nod his head, suddenly understanding completely. 

Hence, he said to Miss Yiyi in deadly earnest, “Miss Yiyi, it’s late.
You’d better go back early, my Shixiong’s eyes are feeling uncomfortable.
I’ll need to help him apply medicine later.

Eldest Shixiong: ……

He obviously was letting this guy hand over a handkerchief to this girl to wipe her tears!  

However, to everyone’s surprise, when Miss Yiyi heard what Fang Chaozhou said, she sobbed spasmodically.
Soon after, she speeded up her footsteps and suddenly rushed forward to hug Fang Chaozhou.
She also wailed sweetly and said: “Gongzi, just take pity on this servant, ok? Accept this servant, ok?”

Before Fang Chaozhou had the time to push away Miss Yiyi, he indescribably sensed a cold air behind him.

He paused, slowly turned his head, and immediately encountered a pair of icey, phoenix eyes.

It was Xue Danrong.

Xue Danrong was dressed in a set of snow clothes and a headband.
He stood on the stairs, looking down at them with the high ground. 

Seeing that it was Xue Dangrong, Fang Chaozhou turned his head back, wanting to push out the girl in his embrace.
However, his hands just simply didn’t dare to touch the other party’s body.  He was afraid his control would be bad if he used magic.
At that time, Miss Yiyi pretended to sustain injuries, completely wronging him. 

Under the confusion, he unexpectedly couldn’t drive the person out of his embrace for a little while.

Fang Chaozhou was at a loss about what he should do.
However, that scene wasn’t like that in the others’ eyes. 

In the end, Fang Chaozhou was desperate and cast a look, a cry for help, towards a Shimei at the scene.
The Shimei received Fang Chaozhou’s meaning and nodded cautiously.
She walked over to console Miss Yiyi, “Miss, if you have something to say, say it properly.
How about you release my Shixiong first.
Besides, men and women shouldn’t touch hands when they give or receive things.
If you hug him like this, wouldn’t my Shixiong need to take responsibility for you?”

[T/N: “Shimei” is a younger female that studies in the same place]

Fang Chaozhou: Shimei, if you don’t know how to talk, then don’t open your mouth!

In Fang Chaozhou’s embrace, Miss Yiyi lifted half her face.
As before, she sweetly said, “This servant doesn’t need Gongzi to take responsibility.
This servant is merely suffering from poor health.
This servant would be perfectly content as long as this servant can stay by Gongzi’s side.”

“A cultivator ought to be uninterested in self-indulgence and shouldn’t miss the mundane world.
Furthermore, he could live several hundred years, even up to a millennium.
You are a mere mortal.
Do you have any use staying by his side?”

That was Xue Danrong’s voice. 

Fang Chaozhou distinctly felt the girl in his embrace go slightly rigid. 

Soon after, he saw the other party turn their head to search behind him.
There stood Xue Danrong, posture upright.
