Chapter 490: Not Giving in to Neither Soft nor Hard Tactics!

Translator: Rain Editor: Chrissy
"Our relationship is not what you think. It is such a pure and beautiful thing between us. Why do you have to make it sound like she has an affair with me!"

Ye Xiao’s eyes were like lightnings that stared at Wan-Er. He spoke in a deep voice, "I saved her life. She knows how to return the favor, so she tried to help me when I am in danger. Even if she dies, she is just giving back the life to me. It is surprising to me, but it is reasonable. Is it really that hard for you to understand it?"

Ye Xiao said so. He sounded the same, but his heart was filled with pain at the moment. It didn’t stop. [I… Why would such a pretty girl sacrifice herself to me? She even doesn’t want me to know what she would do for me!]

It was a negotiation now. If he lost the initiative, it would be hard to get it back. If he showed even a bit of his true feelings, showing his weak point, Wan and Xiu would get right on it. They would push his bottom line lower and lower, until they could fully exploit him.

Ye Xiao had to be tough. He could not give in any bit. He needed to be cruel and mean. He had to.

"You use her to threaten me. Well, I am still… not going to say yes!"

"She and I, we don’t have love. Even if she is my lover, I will not accept what you proposed! Even if I need to watch her die first, or we both die together, I still won’t accept it! I will never say yes!"

Ye Xiao’s face was cold like iron. His voice was like ice. He sounded determined.

Wan and Xiu looked at each other. They both saw the helplessness in each other’s eyes.

They truly had no idea how to make this man give in a little bit. They were helpless.

Ling Wuxie seemed casual and said, "I thought you didn’t want to even say a word just now. You have even urged us to leave. How come after we mentioned this Bing-Er, you talked so much? Do you still insist in sending us away…"

He clicked his tongue as he said, "I really am interested. I wonder how beautiful and pure-hearted that girl is to make Feng Monarch change his mind like this? I don’t think she is going to disappoint me!"

Ye Xiao was surprised. He turned around and stared at Ling Wuxie, with cruelty and coldness in his eyes.

Ling Wuxie was smiling. He nodded and spoke in a casual way, "No offense. I have a shortage. I talk fast."

Ye Xiao blandly spoke, "Never mind. Fast or slow, you will get to know whether I am telling the truth or not. I would talk to you, but that didn’t mean I would give in."

He was relaxed now. He spoke in a heavy voice, "What else you want to threaten me with. Go on. I am a bit tired. I need to close my eyes. Please. I will listen to you. I won’t stop you. I promise. Just go away when you are done talking. Ling-Bao Hall has sent away all the servants, so we have no food and drink for you. Forgive me."

"I have been busy the whole day. I am exhausted."

Ye Xiao stretched his body when he finished talking. He lied down on the chair and then closed his eyes.

Apparently, he was showing one attitude.

[I don’t want to speak, or to listen.]

[You think I have changed my mind because you mentioned Bing Xinyue?]

[Fine. You can go on. Just say whatever you want.]

[I won’t interrupt. I will listen. I just won’t truly pay attention to it!]

Ling Wuxie realized he was wrong.

After Bing Xinyue was mentioned, Feng Monarch slightly changed his attitude. They seemed to have grasped an opportunity, however, what Ling Wuxie did was wrong. He actually revealed it.

Feng Zhiling was such a tough man!

When Ling Wuxie revealed it all, even if Feng Zhiling was moved, he would stop and play tough again.

Ye Xiao kept his eyes closed as he said, "You have strength, you have energy, you have noble identity, you have power… So you think you can do whatever you want?"

"Do you really think you can control a man by controlling his woman?"

"Do you really think you can threaten all living men by controlling the rise and fall of the world?"

"You are wrong."

"You made it, but you are asking for way too much."

"You want nothing from this world. You care for nothing in this world. The world is turned over. The kingdoms fall, people suffer. You just don’t care. That is why you can make it till now."

"But now it is different."

"You need something from me."

"So I won’t care about your threats! You either just kill me, or you just play your game yourselves. Just go live your boring lives for maybe thousands or millions of years. Or maybe you can just go away now!

"I won’t make more Heaven Seizing Supreme Dan beads for you. The one I promised you, I won’t make it any sooner. Dan-making requires the dan-maker to be calm and peaceful, or else he would definitely fail. No matter how many times he tries, he will fail! I promise, after about seven months, I will take a Heaven Seizing Supreme Dan bead to Master Bai. As for the other beads you want, I suggest you should go ask somebody else’s help. I really cannot do anything!"

"Just so you know, I don’t surrender to softness nor to hardness. Both softness and hardness, I won’t surrender!"

"Please leave now!"

Wan of the Clouds, Xiu of the Heavens and Ling Wuxie didn’t know what to say or what to do next!

They knew that this man wouldn’t lie, especially on a topic that concerned his own decision. They saw it from how he dealt with those assassins and the people of the two great sects.

However, they didn’t know what to do… when they couldn’t reach to an agreement on this.

Like Feng Zhiling said, they were the ones who needed help. If Feng Zhiling kept being tough, wouldn’t be moved by any means, what could they do?

Wan-Er and Xiu-Er both wanted to sighed. [Why would there be a man with such personality in the world?]

Translator's Thoughts

Due to some personal reasons, there will be delays for RITF's translations. As such, rather than 2 a day, we will just post multiple chapters (5-6) in days when we are able to finish a chapter. However, we are still to follow the schedule, and expecting that everything will return to 2 a day in the beginning of November. To help everyone keep up with the schedule, by October 31, we should be at Chapter 514. For now, October 23, we should be at chapter 498. We apologize for the inconvenience, but once everything is sorted out, we will catch up and get back to normal schedule. Much love to every reader of RITF! :)
