Chapter 35: Even (Part One)
Fang Jie looked at Cui Lueshang apologetically and jumped over before dragging his robe to cover Cui Lueshang. He whispered, “Gongzi Cui, quickly turn around! Don’t let them see you. This damn horse had to move right now! A beast is a beast after all!”
Cui Lueshang didn’t see Fang Jie signaling Da Quan, so he looked at Fang Jie with gratitude. His face was burning so much that it felt like an egg could be cook on it. He was from Long-West Cui Family. Although it wasn’t the most famous Cui Family, it was one of the big families in Long-West State. Cui Lueshang had received proper education, and he had never done anything this shameless before.
The thrill that he sensed when he lowered his pants was gone, and he was embarrassed right now.
While pulling up his pants, he thought in anger, “What if those beauties saw my face? How can I live in Xiang City if this gets passed around? If my peers find out about this, I wouldn’t be able to raise my head in front of them.”
The more he thought, the angrier he became.
He regretted listening to this young man, and he thought, “How would I be in this embarrassing situation if I didn’t listen to him? However, this young man instantly came over to block for me instead of kicking me when I’m down. It seems like he is loyal to friends.”
Although Cui Lueshang was from a big family, and he wasn’t dumb, he wasn’t as clever as his brothers. He was quite naïve, which was a rare trait for people who lived in big families. Since his mind was simple, even though his mother was his father’s wife instead of a concubine, his father didn’t like him.
His relationship with his father wasn’t great. The more that his father forced him to read books and learn how to write, the more rebellious he became. In the end, his father gave up and allowed him to do whatever he wanted.
Cui Lueshang was close with a few other gongzi in Xiang City, but they didn’t treat him as a true friend. Instead, they used him as a walking wallet. When they went out, Cui Lueshang paid for everything nine out of ten times.
Cui Lueshang was thinking about how loyal to friends Fang Jie was, but Fang Jie slightly moved to the side by half a step, showing a bit of Cui Lueshang’s butt. Seeing this, the girls of Beckon of the Red Sleeve screamed; they weren’t panicking but were having fun instead.
Hearing the screams, Cui Lueshang was even more embarrassed. He pulled up his pants and fled after saying, “Brother, see you again.”
“Little Brother, come and find me at Xiang City. I’m going to the Capital to participate in the entrance exam of the Martial Arts Academy. If you are heading to the Capital as well, we can travel together,” Cui Lueshang’s voice sounded, but he was long gone.[Support the real translators and read on Noodletown Translations for free.]
Fang Jie chuckled and said, “His light-body skill is pretty good.”
Da Quan pulled the horse over and chuckled as well, “What a surprise; you met a future peer. This prank isn’t that fitting anymore. Those girls of Beckon of the Red Sleeve saw this and got entertained; we need to get some benefits from them.”
Mu Xiaoyao was too lazy to pay attention to these two dirty men. While they tried to escape from those hunters all these years, Fang Jie and Da Quan had done many pranks like this.
Mu Xiaoyao felt like Heaven was unfair because of them. If Heaven were truly fair, it would have sent down a thunderbolt and killed these two.
“Fang Jie, what are we eating tonight?” Da Quan rubbed his belly and asked, “How about we go onto the mountain and see what we can hunt? I have eaten too much dry bread. If I can’t eat meat, I would rather go back to Fangu.”
Fang Jie nodded and said, “It is still early; we can go and see what we can find on the mountain.”
Da Quan tied the horse to a tree and asked Mu Xiaoyao who was inside the compartment, “Are you coming? There are many thirsty men around. What will you do if someone got in when Fang Jie and I aren’t around? Although Fang Jie and I don’t see you as a woman, you are still…”
“Go away!” Mu Xiaoyao shouted.
Da Quan wasn’t angry after he got shouted at; he turned around and left. It felt like he wanted to be cussed at every day, and Fang Jie said that his dirtiness was the most valuable trait that he had.
