Soon, Lu Zhouhe’s performance was finished. After a moment of silence, the area was filled with deafening applause and compliments! Compared to Miss Dong’s performance, the atmosphere at this moment was even hotter. Apparently, Lu Zhouhe’s composition impressed most of the people here. They were sincerely convinced by his talent.
Even Xu Que was convinced by this composition. He knew he was not able to make such a high-quality composition. As a great musician, Lu Zhouhe could rival masters like Beethoven!
When Lu Zhouhe put away his Guqin, he glanced at Xu Que speculatively. His eyes were full of sarcasm. It was a provocation and disdain obviously. It seemed he was trying to respond to Xu Que’s provocation just now. In short, he was trying to tell Xu Que either show your talents or stop acting tough!
Xu Que was annoyed immediately. What I want is a face-to-face challenge. I don’t need this kind of eye contact! You are seeking death!
At the thought of this, Xu Que almost tried to kill the toy boy with one punch.
Just at this time, Buttface came up from nowhere suddenly. He said in a low, furtive voice, “Little brat, something big has happened!”
“What?” Xu Que was surprised.
Buttface said in a low voice, “Holy crap! I was freaked out just now. This is not an ordinary building. Just now I sensed a horrible aura. I guess it might come from a cultivator at the Celestial Realm!”
“What? Celestial Realm?” Xu Que was shocked instantly, “Really? Where did you find it?”
“It’s true! I went to the kitchen just now. That aura flashed by outside the kitchen. I was not able to track it, but I’m sure it is in this building!” Buttface said in terror.
Xu Que’s lips twitched immediately. He sneered at Buttface coldly, “Buttface, you are awesome! I didn’t expect you could have sneaked into the kitchen in such a short time!”
Howl! “I just passed by the kitchen! OK, OK, I’ll continue to scout the situation!” Buttface ran away diffidently.
Xu Que didn’t want to waste his time on Buttface. He also gave up the idea of attacking Lu Zhouhe recklessly. Anyway, he had so many ways to punish this guy. He just didn’t want to offend a cultivator at the Celestial Realm for such a small fish! At least, he wouldn’t do that before finding the Ten-Millennium-Flower-Dew!
What if he had to confront that powerful cultivator after finding the Ten-Millennium-Flower-Dew? Heh, heh, the Act-Tough Saint won’t be scared away by a cultivator of the Celestial Realm!
At the thought of this, Xu Que stared at Lu Zhouhe with a cold smile.
After Lu Zhouhe’s performance, a lot of people who were itching for a try didn’t dare to show themselves. Several highly skilled exerts stepped out and played high-quality compositions with Guzheng, Guqin, or jade flute.
The building was filled with compliments. Even Miss Dong, who was sitting behind the gauze curtain, kept praising them.
However, Xu Que had managed to find out the truth. No matter whether the compositions were happy or sad, that disappointment was always hidden deeply in Miss Dong’s eyes. It seemed all those compositions couldn’t satisfy her. It was just like the Go Astray she had played just now. She was trying to pursue something new or make some new changes.
Oh? Could it be that…. Xu Que’s eyes lit up as if an idea had occurred to him.
“Hah, hah, hah….” Xu Que struck the table and laughed loudly.
All the rest of the people in this area fixed their eyes on Xu Que.
Xu Que shook his head and said with a proud smile, “Guys, I am not here to blame you! I just want to tell you that all your compositions and poems are rubbish!”
His words threw the entire area into a dead silence.
After that, uproar broke out. Everyone stared at Xu Que and accused him angrily.
“How dare you break the rules of the Dong Family!”
“We’ve come to an agreement that we won’t talk about win or lose today. It is a friendly match. How dare you provoke everyone here?”
“Humph! I’ve noticed this man for a long time. He started to shake his head disdainfully when Miss Dong read her poem!”
“It’s more than that! He always acted like this whenever someone read a poem or played a composition. He even disdained Lord Lu’s composition. I didn’t expect he would say it in front of us directly! He is so arrogant!”
Many people kept blaming Xu Que angrily. Actually, they had endured him for a long time. They just didn’t want to step out and accuse Xu Que in front of the people of the Dong Family. However, now Xu Que had provoked them. They didn’t want to put up with him anymore. They also wanted to take this opportunity to vent their anger.
Lu Zhouhe was smiling coldly. He glanced at Xu Que sarcastically because he was trying to annoy Xu Que, so that Xu Que would act out. Now, he thought his plan had worked.
On the contrary, Miss Dong, who was still sitting behind the gauze curtain, was stunned a bit. From the very beginning, she had noticed Xu Que’s reactions and expressions. In order to show due respect to everyone in this area, she hadn’t asked him for the reason. After all, things like poems or music suited both refined and popular tastes. Different people had different viewpoints and tastes. Nothing could be accepted by everyone. Therefore, she ignored Xu Que and focused on enjoying the performances.
However, she didn’t expect that this guy would step out and denounce the works of other people as rubbish. This was outrageous indeed!
“My lord, why do you say that?” Miss Dong asked Xu Que, for she was trying to appease everyone. Her words quieted this area immediately. People just stared at Xu Que angrily.
Xu Que said with a faint smile, “I don’t want to waste my time with poems. I could read several lines:
I can barely wake up in spring slumber, as the chirping of birds is heard here and there.
Last night came a stormy rain. To try to count the fallen petals would be a vain task.
Hey, this is a poem I composed when I was five. It’s boring, why are you so surprised?”
All the people in the area were shocked.
Although Xu Que read the poem casually, they realized this poem was quite poetic and visually inspired. Especially the last line “To try to count the fallen petals would be a vain task” could be regarded as an excellent finishing touch!
More important, he said he composed this poem when he was five!
My god! Is this guy a genius?
His talents in poetry are extraordinary!
“I don’t think it is necessary for me to read the rest of my poems. Anyway, they are better than this one! That’s why I denounced your poems, for they are so terrible that they couldn’t be called poems!”
After saying that, Xu Que said with fervor and assurance again, “Moreover, just now I only shook my head for I was doing my best to contain myself! However, after hearing your compositions, sorry, I couldn’t hold myself back any longer! Maybe someone is curious about the reason!”
After saying that, Xu Que stopped as he looked at the people in this area. Their dumbfounded expressions made Xu Que smile, “The reason is that I am best at music!”
Instantly, the entire area was in an uproar.
What did he say?
Is he best at music?
Does this mean that extraordinary poem he read just now was nothing for him?
His talents in poetry are so remarkable! I didn’t expect that it is not his strongest skill! I can’t imagine how marvelous his musical skills could be!
