Chapter 217: Swatting Two Houseflies

I Am Overlord

The two newcomers were inner disciples of the Cloud Margin Pavilion, both Transformation Realm cultivators. The woman was Wang Jiaohua, Ye Lingyun's cousin. As for the man, he was Wang Jiaohua's lover, Wen Jinrui.

Some curious disciples had noticed the two and had followed them to see what was happening. They were able to guess that Wang Jiaohua was most likely here to take revenge for Ye Lingyun.

"Who's Xia Liuhui? Get your ass over here!" shouted Wang Jiaohua the moment she entered the restaurant.

When Xia Liuhui heard her, he shivered and whispered to Xiang Shaoyun, "Boss, trouble has arrived!"

Wang Zhenchuan had a solemn look on his face as well. "Worse comes to worst, we'll just fight it out with them."

Someone pointed at Xia Liuhui, immediately causing all gazes to focus on them. Wang Jiaohua and Wen Jinrui also looked over before walking over.

"Boss, what should we do now?" Xia Liuhui grew anxious.

"Calm down. Nothing will happen. Your boss is here," Xiang Shaoyun said calmly.

He then glanced over at Wen Jinrui before sneering, "I did not expect to see him again this quickly. Looks like it's time for me to get some payback."

The Wen Clan had moved against him numerous times. In fact, he had been suspecting that the sudden appearance of a King at the Flame Mountain also had something to do with Wen Jinrui. He would need some payback for that.

Wen Jinrui saw Xiang Shaoyun, but he was unaware that Xiang Shaoyun and Overlord Xiang were the same person. He only remembered Xiang Shaoyun as the kid who had played some tricks on him during their time at Wu Town.

That is quite a surprise. You're in Cloud Margin Pavilion as well, kid? Good, we can settle debts old and new together! thought Wen Jinrui with a sneer.

"You're Xia Liuhui? And these two must be your accomplices? Get your asses over here! You dare to harm my cousin? Nobody can save you today!" said Wang Jiaohua overbearingly.

When a pretty woman talked so overbearingly in public, she did look rather tyrannical. Wang Jiaohua was only 20 years old and was already a fifth-stage Transformation Realm cultivator. With her talent, she had the qualifications to be arrogant. Even so, she still knew the restaurant wasn't a place she could act wantonly. Thus, she held her hands and did not do anything within the restaurant.

Xiang Shaoyun spoke before Xia Liuhui could, "Where did this noisy old lady come from? Is she not aware that the sight of her is enough to cause someone to lose their appetite?"

His words sank everyone into silence. Old lady! That was an absolute insult for any beautiful young woman.

At those words, Wang Jiaohua's face twisted and an imposing aura surged out of her as she bellowed, "I'll kill you!"

Ever since Wang Jiaohua had joined the Cloud Margin Pavilion, nobody had ever spoken to her like that. Xiang Shaoyun was the first. Just as she was on the brink of losing her temper and was about to attack in the restaurant itself, Wen Jinrui pulled her hand and said, "Jiaohua, don't let that get to you. He is purposely trying to anger you so you will attack and break the rules. Let me deal with this."

Wang Jiaohua suppressed her fury and said, "Ok, love. Make sure he suffers." 

Wen Jinrui nodded and stared at Xiang Shaoyun with a sharp gaze before saying, "Kid, we meet again."

Xiang Shaoyun grabbed a handful of peanuts from the table before asking, "And who in the world are you? Do I know you?"

When the crowd saw the contempt Xiang Shaoyun was showing Wen Jinrui, they couldn't help but give him an inner thumbs up. They had never seen Xiang Shaoyun before, but the guts he had in order to show inner disciples such scorn was something worthy of admiration. Of course, they were also wondering what would happen to Xiang Shaoyun.

"You are very good at talking, but it's all pointless. If you know what's good for you, come out with me right now and stop hiding here like a coward," said Wen Jinrui after he forced himself to calm down.

"Eh, what's so bad about being a coward? At least one can avoid a beating being a coward," said Xiang Shaoyun shamelessly.

Those words changed the inner thumbs up the crowd was giving him into an inner middle finger. Earlier, they had all thought that the kid was a capable person himself and that that was why he had dared to offend two inner disciples. But it turned out he was just a coward!

Wen Jinrui viewed it as a sign of Xiang Shaoyun shrinking from the fight. He thus roared with laughter and said, "Haha, yes, you are right. But you can't hide forever. You will have to face the music eventually."

He then said to Wang Jiaohua, "Jiaohua, why don't we order some food here as well? We'll take our time waiting for these three cowards to leave before crushing each one of them."

Wang Jiaohua nodded. "Ok, let's wait then. We have plenty of time."

"You might have a lot of free time, but I'm a busy man. Let's go out and settle this right now. The sight of an adulterous couple like you two is making me lose my appetite," Xiang Shaoyun said with disdain as he stood up.

"Boss, it's better if we wait for a bit more," Xia Liuhui advised. He knew Xiang Shaoyun had an impressive combat power, but he did not think Xiang Shaoyun was strong enough to face the likes of Wen Jinrui and Wang Jiaohua.

"I'll go get my master," Wang Zhenchuan decided.

"Don't worry. Just swatting two houseflies." Xiang Shaoyun waved his hand. He then looked at Wang Jiaohua, "I am the one who beat your cousin up. You want payback? Then, come with me, old lady."

He then strode out the restaurant. His heroic bearing caused a number of young women in the vicinity to be smitten. What a resolute and handsome man!

"Senior Brother Wen, I want him to suffer a fate worse than death!" demanded the furious Wang Jiaohua.

Wen Jinrui nodded as a sharp glint crossed his eyes. "Don't worry. He is only a bug from a small town. I will teach him a lesson for offending you."

And thus, the people in the restaurant all left, awaiting the coming "show" to unfold.

The moment Wen Jinrui arrived outside, he prepared to attack, "Die, bug!"

"HOLD ON!" Xiang Shaoyun cried out.

"Hmph. It is too late for regret," Wen Jinrui snorted.

"Do I look like I am begging for mercy? Please, stop imagining things. I only want to ask if there is a good location for a spar here. I'm tired of getting harassed by your enforcers," said Xiang Shaoyun with a shrug.

"Well. Very well. Let's go to the arena then. There, even killing is fine," said Wen Jinrui with a twisted expression.

"Sure. To the arena, then," Xiang Shaoyun agreed indifferently.

Soon, they arrived at an arena. Wen Jinrui was in too much of a hurry to showcase his strength, so he immediately leaped onto the arena before taunting Xiang Shaoyun with his finger. "Come up here to your death."

"Hehe, ignorance does breed bravery it seems," said Xiang Shaoyun with a nonchalant smile. He then said to Wang Jiaohua, "Old lady, you want to come up as well? We can save some time that way."

"Let me deal with the old lady instead," a melodic voice suddenly rang out in the air.
