But if he did approve of you, he would regard you as a precious treasure, and he wouldn’t allow anyone to take you away from him.
In his eyes, therein lay the difference in worth between the nine founding elders and Xu Xiaoshou…
They were worlds apart.
He eyed the silent young man, then turned to Xiao Qixiu with his straw hat in hand. “Our plan to capture the masked figure tonight failed. We underestimated his strength. He killed two Inner Yard disciples before escaping with ease.”
After a slight pause, he added. “That’s what we’ll announce to the others.”
Xiao Qixiu was stupefied. He gave Ye Xiaotian a look.
Ye Xiaotian was staring at Elder Sang in astonishment. It appeared that he was still in shock from the old man’s bewildering antics.
Elder Sang grinned cheekily. “If you still want that arm of yours, you should nod and agree.”
Ye Xiaotian remained silent.
He clutched his broken arm. The wound had stopped bleeding, but without an accomplished alchemist, it might not heal. Ye Xiaotian sank into deep contemplation.

“Is it really him?”
The two men were speaking in riddles and confusing Xu Xiaoshou. His curiosity was piqued. “Who is he?”
Three pairs of piercing eyes turned to stare at him, and Xu Xiaoshou slowly inched away from the trio.
“You’re the ones who told me to stay. Sure, keep your gossip to yourself. But why are you ostracizing me…” he protested weakly.
The other three men were baffled. What gossip?
Elder Sang patted Xu Xiaoshou on the shoulder. “Focus on your cultivation. This isn’t something you should get yourself involved in right now.”
That only served to amplify his curi
