Chapter 139: Second and First (Part Two)
Wu Yidao completely ignored him and pulled Wu Yinyu’s hand as he said, “Although your results are good, I still need to discuss it with you. When I met Spiritual Master Xiao this morning, he told me that you should return to One Qi Daoist Temple. I already arranged everything, and you can leave tomorrow morning. See what you need and bring everything.”
“How is this discussing with me?” Wu Yinyu’s expression changed, and she broke away from Wu Yidao’s grip and quickly walked toward her room.
Fang Jie was surprised and didn’t know what to say.
Jiu Secai shook his head as he pulled Fang Jie, signaling the latter not to get involved.
Wu Yidao completely ignored Fang Jie and chased after Wu Yinyu.
While watching these two, Fang Jie suddenly somehow got a little envious.
“What happened?” Fang Jie asked.
Jiu Secai sighed and suddenly asked Fang Jie after a moment of silence, “Is Miss pretty?”
Fang Jie nodded and said, “Although she isn’t mature yet, it is undeniable that she is pretty.”
“His Majesty said that too.” The fatty shook his head and said, “You said she is pretty, and His Majesty said so as well. Everyone says that, so Miss must be pretty. When you two played, there was a refreshing atmosphere. Eh, I mean that you two are about the same age, so nothing looks strange. However, His Majesty… is about 40 years old.”
Fang Jie finally understood the situation, and his heart lurched a little.
“I got it,” he said.
Jiu Secai sighed powerlessly and added, “Now, it seems like only One Qi Daoist Temple on Pure Joy Mountain could allow Miss to have a few more peaceful years.”
“What about a few years from now?”
“Who knows?” Jiu Secai waved his hand and walked into the yard.
When Jiu Secai’s fat body disappeared, Fang Jie suddenly remembered that he still didn’t know his test results in the entrance exam.
But since everything was announced, Fang Jie was in no hurry. He straightened his attire and walked south.
The small shop that Xie Fuyao mentioned wasn’t far away from this city gate, and Fang Jie spent quite a while before finding the spot.
When he got there, Xie Fuyao was already waiting. The table was clean, and there was nothing on it except for a pot of tea.
Clearly, this young man knew how to respect others; he didn’t order anything before Fang Jie and others got here.
“What is good here?” Fang Jie asked after sitting down.
“Stewed meat.” Xie Fuyao asked the waiter to fill the teapot, then he pointed at the big iron pot by the kitchen and said, “When I first came to Chang’an, my father brought me here to eat the stewed meat. Since then, I couldn’t forget it. Regardless of how many delicacies I eat, I still feel like a bowl of stewed meat with buns on the side is more delicious.”
Fang Jie wanted to say that Xie Fuyao was quite low maintenance, but he felt like he wasn’t close enough with Xie Fuyao to make such a comment.
While the two of them talked, Zhang Kuang and Mo Xidao arrived together.
As soon as they got here, they asked Fang Jie if he felt better, and Fang Jie smiled and pointed at the big iron pot, saying that he was strong enough to finish it himself.
Seeing that Fang Jie was ok, Zhang Kuang joked, “Are you talking about eating that iron pot?”
After Fang Jie got caught by that old monk, Xie Fuyao instantly chased after that old monk despite the latter’s insane strength. Therefore, Zhang Kuang and Mo Xidao’s impression of him changed greatly. The border soldiers could trust their backs to their peers, so Zhang Kuang and Mo Xidao didn’t mind befriending someone who was this fearless and loyal to friends.
“Oh right. Fang Jie, we met your friend on our way here.”
“Ah? Where is he?” Fang Jie asked in a hurry.
“He is probably out of Chang’an already; he left the city on a horse alone. You probably can’t catch up to him now. I chatted with him and told him that you were injured. I can tell he is worried about you, but he said that he won’t go visit you after a while of hesitation. He is probably still upset about being disqualified. I know that people like him who are from big families have pride in themselves, and he probably doesn’t want to see you due to shame.”
