The Anarchic Consort - Chapter 286 - Master Wushuang
“I’m just worried about your health, am I not?” Nangong Lie smirked slyly that meant no worries at all, but was, instead, rather provocative.
Seeing this scene, Helian Wei Wei spoke with a calm tone, “Classmate Shuang, there’s a seat beside me, you can sit here.”
As Nangong Lie did not expect she would speak up for Master Wushuang, he furrowed his eyebrows at Helian Wei Wei and then turned his gaze at Baili Jia Jue.
Baili Jia Jue’s face had no expression. Only when he heard Helian Wei Wei’s voice, he lifted his beautiful eyes.
The polite smile Jing Wushuang wore on his mouth never ceased. “Thank you.” This was directed toward Helian Wei Wei.
Helian Wei Wei lifted her thin lips. “You’re welcome. Courtesy demands reciprocity. It’s how it’s supposed to be.” He had helped her once, so she returned him the favor now. Besides, this was not a big favor.
“Won’t I disturb you?” Jing Wushuang glanced at the man on her left side, then met Helian Wei Wei’s eyes, his eyes curved with exceptional gentleness.
Helian Wei Wei smiled leisurely and replied, “You won’t.” Wherever he sat was nothing to do with her. The main point was to get him off the hook.
After Master Wushuang seated, he coughed lightly, revealing a smile toward Helian Wei Wei that could melt all the snow and dew.
There was a type of man in this world, who would quietly nurture his surroundings, forming a scenery by merely sitting down.
It was entitled to a man like Jing Wushuang.
Nangong Lie flashed another glimpse at Baili Jia Jue. Aren’t you doing anything?
Baili Jia Jue ignored him, just that his eyes lost their usual temperature, but it did not affect his grace, though. Instead, due to some reasons, his grace magically became even more charismatic that could move one’s heart. He reached out his hand with his finger pointing at Helian Wei Wei’s book. “This part is wrong.”
“Hmm?” Helian Wei Wei did not know why the topic had changed to this, but she instinctively replied, “Didn’t you ask me to do this? Is it still wrong?”
Baili Jia Jue affirmed her calmly.
Regarding this, Helian Wei Wei had no guards against His Highness. Upon hearing that it was wrong, she leaned her head forward to meet his, completely unaware of how tacit and intimate her actions were. Jing Wushuang captured everything in his eyes.
Jing Wushuang squinted his eyes, meeting Baili Jia Jue’s eyes unintentionally.
Jing Wushuang was then stunned.
It was a gaze that was freezing cold without any warmth, like an absolute superior with suffocating pressure.
How long had he last seen a gaze like this?
Jing Wushuang lowered his eyesight, appearing to be reading his book, unaffected, but was actually pondering on his thoughts.
A class that was unpeaceful ended.
The students’ gossip grew like wild grass, all about this mysterious new student. There were many who wanted to gather information about him.
The Inferior Compound must have a stroke of explosive luck this year, considering so many handsome men had enrolled in it.
Just that the first two students had their own problems. One was like a god, although handsome, he was not easy to approach. There were some girls who thought of sending letters to Baili Jia Jue, but every time they looked at his face, they felt dizzy before being able to speak.
Moreover, this guy would probably toss away their letters after taking them, or even ignored the girls and walked past them.
As for another person, he had numerous girls around him. He was definitely easy to approach, but he could not offer a sense of security.
The newcomer was different. His easy-going moderation and elegance made it difficult for the teacher not to like him. Along with his light coughs from time to time, the girls all loved and pitied him.
Therefore, when it was time for a break, two or three girls who were straightforward gathered around him to get to know more about him.
Jing Wushuang basically answered all of their questions tactfully.
Helian Wei Wei was listening to him. She had to admit that this youngest master in his family managed to phrase every sentence appropriately. He was absolutely smart.
Qing Zhan did not know the background of Jing Wushuang. However, seeing how Helian Wei Wei and the others were reacting, she naturally caught a glimpse of Jing Wushuang.
Her glance chilled Nangong Lie’s eyes further.
Leaning his body, he put his arm on Baili Jia Jue’s shoulder. ” Why doesn’t he remain at his City of Martial Practice? Why did he come here? To hook up with girls?”
“Your hand.” Baili Jia Jue lowered his gaze, his voice as unaffected as ever. “You don’t want it anymore?”
Nangong Lie’s eyes bore slyness in them, “Ah Jue, as your brother, don’t say I didn’t remind you. This guy came here most probably for Helian Wei Wei. Lately, Wei Ze World has been getting too powerful, and he as the master from the City of Martial Practice definitely will grow cautious of it. It’s odd, though, that Helian Wei Wei would actually speak up for him. From what she said, it seems like both of them encountered each other before. What can this mean? Cherishing each others’ hearts because they are in the same field? ”
Cherishing each others’ hearts?
Upon hearing those four words, the corner of Baili Jia Jue’s mouth twitched into a demonic cold that could hurt the eye, so strong that Nangong Lie gulped down his upcoming words.
Other students were still engrossed with the newcomer.
“Oh well, have you heard of it? The Superior Compound also has a newcomer. She looks just like a fairy, and I wonder whose young lady could it be. She is rather young, but her martial Qi value is really strong. She could light up the entire crystal ball, and even the dean praised her. What’s more important is that she also knows how to create martial arts, and she has an exquisite weapon with her!”
“Someone like this really exists? Where is she from? I’ve never heard of anyone like her in the Capital!”
“I don’t know either, but the news must be true. The teacher at Superior Compound said so himself…”
The news about newcomers made a fuss among students, but to Helian Wei Wei it was the most common thing. There were very few matters that could spike her interest. Moreover, her whole mind was thinking of how to find the Hidden Army, so she did not take notice of the news.
What really bothered her was the words whispered by Yuan Ming in her ears. “This girl is indeed interesting.”
“Hmm?” As Helian Wei Wei lifted her eyes, she saw a young lady standing at the shop she frequented, seeming to be choosing books.
The point was, there were very few people who visited this place, except for Helian Wei Wei.
Normally, whenever there were outsiders, Old Man Huan would not show up himself, but today he sat in the yard securely with a cup of hot tea beside his hand.
Helian Wei Wei smiled and sauntered there.
The young lady smiled with elegance as she came across Helian Wei Wei. “What a coincidence.”
“It indeed is.” When Helian Wei Wei decided to be casual, generally no one could guesstimate her feelings.
The young lady tilted her head and watched Helian Wei Wei for a moment. Without saying more words, she turned her body back to continue choosing her books, but as she lowered her eyes, it turned icy cold…
