After killing Lin Fan and the others, Xiang Shaoyun looted their corpses.
Instead of keeping the spoils for himself, he gave them to Xia Liuhui and Liang Zhuangmin and said, "Take these. Consider this a compensation for your mental distress they had caused."
The storage rings of several Soul Foundation Realm cultivators amounted to a considerable sum of wealth. One could see just how generous Xiang Shaoyun was for him to give them all to his brothers without a care. When Devil Concubine saw, her eyes flickered.
Xiang Shaoyun was good-looking and domineering. Now that he was demonstrating his generosity, he looked more and more like the perfect man for her. She had been observing him for an entire month, and she was starting to believe that he really was an upright gentleman. Through her observations, she developed a sort of attraction toward him.
She had seen way too many outstanding men, but Xiang Shaoyun was the first to give her this kind of feeling, which was why she had suddenly decided that Xiang Shaoyun was her man. She didn't do that just because he had seen her bathing but because he had defeated her in combat as well. Since her defeat, she had admired his strength.
Even after she tried killing him so many times, he did not take advantage of her moment of danger. Rather, he had saved her and had even agreed to take a stab from her. That was when she started believing he was a decent man.
As she spent time with him, she found that he might seem uncaring, but whenever she was in danger, he would help. Some of the dangers were situations she had intentionally placed herself in, but through that, she managed to ascertain that he really did care about her.
Hence, she was not about to give up on a man like him. Yes, he had a wife and a son. So what?
Xia Liuhui and Liang Zhuangmin did not stand on ceremony and accepted the storage rings. They even shared the spoils with Min Rourou and Wu Zhijun.
"H-how can we do this? Return it to him!" said Min Rourou, embarrassed.
"Just accept it. Consider this a gift from my boss for your first meeting. My boss is rich," said Xia Liuhui as he stuffed the storage ring into Min Rourou's hands.
Min Rourou insisted, "No. There are definitely many treasures inside. I can't take it!"
At this time, Xiang Shaoyun walked over and asked, "Liuhui, who is this?"
"Boss, this is the beautiful and gentle sister-in-law of yours, Min Rourou. Rourou, greet my boss. His name is Xiang Shaoyun. With his care, nobody will dare to bully us!" introduced Xia Liuhui.
Xia Liuhui seemed excessively proud, as though he was flaunting to his boss that he had finally found a beautiful partner.
Min Rourou blushed and said, "H-hello, Xiang Shaoyun. Y-you're even more remarkable than what Liuhui had said about you. You're too handsome and cool."
Xia Liuhui nearly fainted. He hurriedly hugged Min Rourou and said, "Rourou, don't get yourself poisoned by my boss! He has a lot of beauties already. Don't get involved! You can only be mine!"
Xia Liuhui had personally seen how every single woman by Xiang Shaoyun's side was as beautiful as a fairy. He didn't even dare to doubt Xiang Shaoyun's attractiveness. He was truly afraid that Min Rourou would also fall for Xiang Shaoyun. If that happened, he would probably cry himself to death.
Xiang Shaoyun rubbed his nose and said, "Calm down, Liuhui. She was only showing me some admiration. She's still loyal to you. In any case, I already have a woman sticking to me."
He had no choice but to use Devil Concubine as a shield. He did not want to see his brother's woman fall for him, which wouldn't be good. Devil Concubine played along and stepped forth to hug Xiang Shaoyun's arm, demonstrating her ownership over him.
Xiang Shaoyun rubbed his nose and transmitted to her, "Can you not be so blunt?"
"No, you said it yourself. I'm your woman," said Devil Concubine as her lips curled into a smile. She wasn't transmitting her voice. Everyone heard her clearly.
Xia Liuhui hurriedly said, "Rourou, see, the sister-in-law is here. Don't even think about my boss anymore."
Min Rourou blushed and said, "I-I never said I liked him. I-I only admire him. What nonsense are you talking about!"
"Only admiration?" Xia Liuhui asked solemnly.
"Of course! Haven't you always bragged about how amazing your boss is? After meeting him, I found that he is even better than you have described. I couldn't help but voice my praise for him," explained Min Rourou shyly.
"Good, that's good. My boss is too much of a player. He won't be a good match for you. Only a loyal lover like me is suited for you," said Xia Liuhui.
Xiang Shaoyun cursed inwardly, How am I a player?
"Shaoyun, after several years, you have grown stronger yet again. Looks like there is no way we can catch up to you anymore," said Liang Zhuangmin with a sigh.
He had been placing a lot of effort into cultivating and had also obtained some decent fortuitous encounters. However, he was still a seventh-stage Dragon Ascension Realm expert. His cultivation was lower than Xia Liuhui and an entire realm lower than Wu Zhijun. Witnessing Xiang Shaoyun's strength dealt him an even bigger blow.
However, he wasn't someone whose heart would waver so easily. He continued encouraging himself, telling himself that he would definitely catch up to them one day.
"Don't say that, big brother. You have been growing quickly, too. It won't be long before you become even stronger," said Xiang Shaoyun. He looked at Wu Zhijun and said, "Long time, sister-in-law. You have become prettier. No wonder my big brother can never forget you."
Wu Zhijun smiled and said, "You sure have your way with words. No wonder even Devil Concubine has fallen for you."
Xiang Shaoyun felt somewhat awkward. Devil Concubine's infatuation with him did not seem related to words.
"Yes, he's a smooth talker. I really like him," agreed Devil Concubine bluntly.
Xiang Shaoyun almost fainted. He could swear that he had not exchanged more than 10 words with her during the month he spent with her. How was he suddenly a smooth talker?
"Sister, you're so beautiful. You must have a lot of pursuers," said Min Rourou curiously.
She was right. Devil Concubine was too beautiful. She was comparable with Yu Caidie in terms of beauty. Furthermore, the cold way she carried herself made her look like a domineering queen, a woman that proved fatal to many men. Many men would love to conquer a woman like her since it would grant them an immense sense of accomplishment.
Devil Concubine replied nonchalantly, "I don't know. He will be my only man."
Xia Liuhui and Liang Zhuangmin were filled with reverence toward Xiang Shaoyun when they heard her. Xiang Shaoyun was probably the only man that could make her say something like that.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
