“F*ck! What the f*ck!”
Buttface and Duan Jiude looked at Xu Que, and surprised looks appeared on their faces.
They couldn’t believe what they had just heard. The Divine Farmer Clan unexpectedly wanted to make their future saint the daughter-in-law of Xu Que’s father? It was tantamount to wanting her betrothed to Xu Que.
Mo Junchen also looked startled, while Liu Jingning wore a fake smile as she looked at Xu Que, with a playful and seemingly mocking look in her eyes.
“Huh? Why are you all having such extreme responses? Didn’t you hear them say what they wanted to do? They want to kill me with poison,” Xu Que rolled his eyes as he spoke in response to the way the others had reacted.
Xu Que’s body shook with laughter, and he sneered coldly, as he said, “I have assumed that they had a great ploy, and I definitely didn’t expect that it was such a contrived and overused plan. They plan to send a woman to marry into my Xu family and have her poison me. Hee, hee, it’s so naive.”
That was right! It was so naive!
This method seemed stupid no matter how you looked at it, as any experienced cultivator wouldn’t be poisoned, let alone a Celestial King or a being at a higher stage.
“Other people surely wouldn’t fall into their trap, but you… That’s still unknown,” Liu Jingning said with a smile at Xu Que, as she mocked him.
Even though Liu Jingning said these words, she was still relieved, as she was aware that the Wicked Trio was quite adept at poisoning people and plotting against them. It didn’t matter how treacherous the Divine Farmer Clan was, as it still wouldn’t be canny enough to be able to plot against these three fools.
“What do you mean, the outcome is unknown when it comes to me? Little demoness, don’t you have any trust in me? Fine, I will marry that woman, and I will see how she will poison me,” Xu Que spoke confidently. He seemed full of mettle!
“Does Hongyang know that you are so wanton outside?” Liu Jingning said with a smile.
“Even if she knows, so what? And if she doesn’t know it, so what? If the family isn’t stable, how can the world be stable? Even if Hongyang was here, I would still utter the same statement.” Xu Que stuck out his chest and raised his head, while he pointed his finger at a distant location and spoke vigorously, “Today, even if I have to starve to death, die from the cold, or jump to my death, I still won’t allow that woman of the Divine Farmer Clan to enter my Xu family.”
“You are quite amazing!” Liu Jingning imitated Xu Que’s previous posture, blinked, and smiled, while she raised her thumbs up at him.
“Even though I don’t understand what is going on, I still feel that…Brother Que is quite amazing,” Buttface stood up and shouted.
A frown appeared on Duan Jiude’s forehead. “What is amazing about him? Buttface, if you don’t understand anything, don’t shout out at will. This lad has obviously cowered, and he’s a henpecked male…” COUGH! COUGH! “I have mistaken what I saw for something else. He didn’t cower, and it’s all due to love!”
As Duan Jiude got halfway through his statement, he changed his interpretation of what Xu Que was doing because he detected clearly that Xu Que’s mocking gaze had fallen upon him. At that moment, he felt his scalp getting numb.
Buttface laughed loudly, because he felt that there was still hope for him to get some simmer-fried Duan Jiude.
Meanwhile, outside of the Divine Aperture’s Shell, the Divine Farmer Clan was still waiting.
Several talented youths of the Divine Farmer Clan sat together talking.
One of the youngsters looked at Yi Fang and spoke in a low voice as he shook his head, “I still think that this method is quite dangerous. If it fails, our sister will suffer the deadly poison’s backlash, and this isn’t any different than pushing her into a sea of flames.”
“You should calm down! If I didn’t have enough confidence in this, I wouldn’t have carried out the plan.”
Yi Fang was obviously quite sure about this, and he patted his clothes as he stood up. He spoke calmly, “According to what everyone says, Xu Que’s father really has a special fetish and fondness for his daughters-in-law. I once questioned a Jade Lake disciple, and she said that Xu Que’s father has an ambiguous relationship even with Liu Jingning. She said that anyone with a discerning eye would realize that they were having an affair.”
“Is this true?” The other youngsters were startled.
Even though they had also heard some rumors about this matter, they were still only rumors, and they didn’t expect that they were true.
“Hee, hee, it’s really true. This is why I wanted to bring my younger sister. My younger sister’s appearance and demeanor can be ranked among the top ten in the Heaven Continent. As long as she joins the Xu family and becomes the daughter-in-law of Xu Que’s father, she only has to be slightly proactive, and Xu Que’s father surely won’t be able to restrain himself.”
As Yi Fang spoke, he revealed an ice-cold sneer. “As long as he can’t restrain himself, and his Yang Qi enters my younger sister’s body, the Taiyin Severed Root Poison in her body will be ignited, and it will enter the body of Xu Que’s father and take his life. Even if he’s a Celestial King or a being at a higher stage, his Spiritual Root will be severed in an instant, and his Dantian will be destroyed.”
When these words echoed out, the youngsters descended into silence. It couldn’t be denied that such a plan had high odds of success, because they were all clearly aware that Taiyin Severed Root Poison was so terrifying, and it was the sole poison that could kill a Celestial King or a being at a higher stage.
But the crux of the matter now was how could they get Xu Que’s father to lose control of himself. This matter would probably depend upon their little sister’s performance.
As they thought of this, they all looked at the young woman.
The young woman’s head was still lowered, and she kept her silence. Her beautiful face seemed ice-cold, and this was her true character. She was ice-cold and aloof, and having her seduce an old man would be quite difficult.
“Little sister, we don’t have a lot of time left. We can only seal your Taiyin Severed Root Poison for one year, and this is why you must quickly master some Charming Arts,” Yi Fang looked at the young woman once again and spoke to her.
“Okay!” The young woman nodded. This was the first time she had spoken, and she had a soft, sweet-sounding voice.
Upon hearing these two people’s conversation, the youngsters next to them didn’t have any qualms. If their little sister who possessed an outstanding demeanor and pretty appearance mastered the Charming Arts, then there wouldn’t be any man in the world who could resist her.
The youngsters exchanged a glance and kept their silence. This was tantamount to approving the plan.
Even though this plan seemed coarse because they depended only on Taiyin Severed Root Poison, this poison was enough to make up for any deficiency in the plan.
At this moment, Xu Que and his companions descended into silence.
This was especially the case for Xu Que, as he felt slightly dumbfounded.
Previously, he had assumed that this group of the Divine Farmer Clan had planned to make a woman marry him and earn his trust, before looking for a chance to poison him.
He had never imagined that these people could be so shrewd, and he didn’t expect that their plan B would be seduction.
F*ck! It’s well known that I’m famous for my steadiness in the face of women, so how is it possible for me to be seduced so easily?
“Lil Xu Que, it seems as if you have been really lucky, as you have just made a detour next to death’s door,” Liu Jingning smiled and spoke.
She believed that if they hadn’t gotten to hear the Divine Farmer Clan’s plan by chance, Xu Que would most likely have fallen prey to the plan.
After all, this poisoning mode was quite tricky, and even the Wicked Trio would fall for it. After all, those three fools were all males and thus weren’t able to use such a method. This was why they might have fallen for it!
“Hee, hee! As a matter of fact, even if I hadn’t gotten to know of it beforehand, I still wouldn’t have been seduced so stupidly. If she tried to have me fall for her, then she might have had a chance to trick me, but if they wanted to use Charming Arts, then I can only say that they have underestimated me,” Xu Que sneered and shook his head.
“Lad, it seems now that the danger you will face after 40-plus days isn’t this,” Duan Jiude added, as he looked pensive.
Buttface was thoroughly dumbfounded as he listened to them, and he wore a funny expression as he looked at the others and asked, confusedly, “Hold on! I still don’t understand how will they poison him? Why will brother Que be poisoned if he can’t restrain himself.”
“F*ck! Can’t you understand even this?” Duan Jiude opened his eyes wide.
Xu Que turned his head around to look at the Divine Farmer Clan’s woman, while he sighed with emotion, “It’s because…she is poisonous.”
