Chapter 1119: Propriety Between Man and Woman

The coarse voice belonged to a man with a bulky build. He had an ugly appearance, looking like an iron tower with a pair of iron wings closed around himself. He had a square head that looked like a stone, giving him an unnatural and nasty look.

Anyone with a brain would be able to tell that he was of the ironwing race, the strongest race and organization in Getian City. The spirit ear race and ironwing race had always avoided messing with each other, restraining themselves when interacting with the other party.

This ironwing wasn't here to create trouble either; he was here by coincidence. He was trying to see who among the various races were here for the auction and the treasures they had brought with them. If possible, he wished to buy the treasures before they could sell or auction them off.

This ironwing was named Tiegata. He had been in the inn for a while and had long set his sights on Hu Meihui. In the aesthetics of the ironwings, a regular female human would not appear attractive. They found humans too weak and soft, and they preferred harder and stronger females.

However, Hu Meihui was simply too charming. The charm every fiber of her being exuded created an illusion in Tiegata's eyes. Tiegata was never one with strong willpower, so when he looked at her, he saw a bulky and strong woman that gave him the urge to take her for himself. That was why he had invited her to drink with him.

When Hu Meihui looked at Tiegata, a look of disgust appeared on her face. Even so, she still calmly replied, "Sorry. I am only drinking with this young master. Of course, if he is willing to let me drink with you, I won't mind."

One ought to say that Hu Meihui was good at making use of her strong suits. By doing this, she could make her position clear and figure out if Xiang Shaoyun would be willing to fight for her.

However, Xiang Shaoyun acted in a way that was completely contrary to common sense. He smiled at Tiegata and said, "Brother, since you want to drink with her, you may take this seat."

He then stood up and vacated his seat.

The people in the surroundings had a look of scorn as they thought, Is he still a man?

They had thought that Xiang Shaoyun would confront Tiegata, but it turned out he was just a coward. What a disappointment. Hu Meihui thought the same. She had not imagined that this young man would actually throw away his honor so easily, completely foiling the little ruse she was trying to play.

Tiegata let out an unpleasant laugh as he said, "Good. Not bad at all. You're a smart one, kid."

He sat down and fixed his gaze on Hu Meihui. A blatant look of lust covered his face as though he was going to swallow her alive. Hu Meihui felt incomparably disgusted. She stood up and prepared to return to her own table.

Tiegata was naturally unwilling to let that happen. He reached out to her but failed to grab her. Instead, a wine glass entered his hand. He crushed the glass, and the wine splashed on the table.

At this time, the inn's bartender noticed what was happening and said, "Nobody is allowed to create trouble in the inn. Please watch your conduct while here."

This place was spirit ear territory. Even an ironwing would not dare to act out of line.

The warning woke Tiegata from his agitation. He did not dare to create trouble, but he still bore a grudge against Hu Meihui as he said, "Little fox demon, you better stay here forever, or you will eventually be mine."

He then left. As for Xiang Shaoyun, he returned to his room and sighed inwardly, Not one of these foreign races is to be underestimated. They all have unique abilities that one should always be vigilant against.

In the coming days, he stayed in his room and focused on cultivation. Every night, he would absorb the astral energy of nine different stars in the sky. Again and again, he replenished his stars, growing rapidly in his cultivation.

With Di Batian still alive somewhere, Xiang Shaoyun did not dare to slow down. He had to focus on growing, aiming to one day become a Heaven Battling Realm expert. Only then would he be able to protect his Ziling Sect. Without sufficient strength, he would only be living an uneasy life.

In the blink of an eye, several days passed. Xiang Shaoyun finally left his room, but to his surprise, he saw Hu Meihui walking out of the room opposite his room at the same time.

She was slightly stunned before a melodious laugh sounded, "Hehe, what a coincidence. We're actually neighbors."

Xiang Shaoyun smiled helplessly. "Yes, what a coincidence."

"Let's walk together," she invited warmly. "I believe you're also here for the auction."

This time, she wasn't using any of her charming abilities as she smiled. However, this natural smile was much more alluring than her ability-infused smile. Xiang Shaoyun couldn't find a reason to reject her, so he had no choice but to walk with her.

At this time, several other fox ladies came out of different rooms. When they saw Hu Meihui, they all greeted her, "Princess."

"Um. Greet Young Master Xiang as well," said Hu Meihui generously.

"Greetings, Young Master Xiang," greeted the beautiful fox ladies as they saluted him.

Xiang Shaoyun said, "This is definitely more respect than I deserve."

"Of course you deserve it. Few men can catch our princess' eyes. You should be honored," said an outspoken fox lady.

"Is that so? I should really be honored, then," said Xiang Shaoyun as he rubbed his nose.

"Alright, let's get going, or we won't have any seats at the auction," said Hu Meihui as she wrapped her arm around Xiang Shaoyun's arm.

Xiang Shaoyun instinctively pulled back and said, "We should be mindful of the propriety between man and woman. Princess, please watch your conduct."

Those were words that could be extremely hurtful for a woman.

However, Hu Meihui smiled cheerily when she looked at how serious Xiang Shaoyun was. "You are truly a unique man. How can you reject me so cruelly?"

"Everyone knows how good the fox race is at charming abilities. I do not intend to become one of your pets," said Xiang Shaoyun bluntly.

He made his stand clear, so Hu Meihui would stop messing with him. He did not wish for hostility to break out between them.

"Hey, Xiang Shaoyun, you boorish man. My princess has never been so kind to a man before," said one of the fox ladies unhappily.

"That's right. You make it sound like our fox race is an evil and villainous race. If men like you weren't such perverts, we wouldn't even be bothered to waste any time on you people," said a different fox lady.

"That's enough. Xiang Shaoyun's concerns are understandable. Let's go," said Hu Meihui somewhat bleakly.

She then ignored Xiang Shaoyun and left with the others.

Looking at their departing figures, Xiang Shaoyun patted his forehead and muttered, "This young master won't be so easily bewitched."

He had thought that this was the end of the episode with Hu Meihui, but alas, things tended to turn out contrary to the way one wished.
