Xiang Shaoyun left the Hundred Beasts Mountain with Little White. Following Little White were an old demon and several Demon Sovereigns. One could say that Xiang Shaoyun had obtained a group of powerful helpers from this trip.
Inwardly, Xiang Shaoyun lamented, What a good brother to have.
The group returned to Xia Hamlet. However, Xiang Shaoyun had the demonic beasts wait outside the hamlet, as he was afraid that they would harm the humans. He only brought Little White and Money into the hamlet. As far as he was concerned, the two were his brothers, and their races were no longer an issue.
Xia Liuhui had met Little White before, so he was naturally overjoyed to see Little White again. Little White did not dislike Xia Liuhui. Rather, he quite liked Xia Liuhui as a person.
And when he saw Tuoba Wan’er and Gong Qinyin, Little White greeted obediently, “Sister-in-law.” The two were extremely pleased to be greeted that way.
If they weren’t aware that Little White was actually a demonic beast in human form, they would probably start introducing some girls to him.
In the blink of an eye, three days pa.s.sed. Ye Chaomu finally arrived.
Ye Chaomu arrived with her 13 eagles, an old woman, and a middle-aged man of few words. They all had their auras concealed, but when one looked at them, one would still feel like they were surrounded in a divine radiance that gave each of them an extraordinary demeanor.
Even so, in Ye Chaomu’s presence, they no longer seemed as remarkable. She was akin to a pearl in the dark night. Wherever she went, she would s.h.i.+ne brilliantly.
She was seated atop a green-eyed cat. She wore a skintight black outfit, displaying her gorgeous figure with curves in all the right places. Anyone seeing her would wonder if she was a masterpiece created by the heavens.
Her long hair cascaded down her neck and gently drifted about. Her face was enchantingly beautiful, causing anyone looking at her to have a sense of inferiority. From afar, she looked like an ethereal fairy. She was both angelic and seductive; her beauty couldn’t be described with words alone.
When the people stationed near Xia Hamlet saw Ye Chaomu’s group, they went on high alert as though a great enemy had arrived. After all, the newcomers were too powerful, and they had no idea if the newcomers were friends or enemies. Fortunately, Du Xuanhao had met Ye Chaomu before. He immediately stopped the turtle and the toad, telling them to not make any reckless moves.
“Who is this girl? She looks so good. I feel inferior just looking at her,” exclaimed Hua Cheng in admiration.
Du Xuanhao replied, “This is young master’s sister.”
He then rushed forward, saluted Ye Chaomu, and said, “Greetings, Miss Ye. I am Du Xuanhao, someone under the young master’s command. We met before.”
Ye Chaomu’s eyes gleamed as she answered calmly, “Um. You may rise. Is my big brother here?”
“Yes. I’ll show you the way,” said Du Xuanhao respectfully.
For some reason, he felt timid facing Ye Chaomu, as though her presence was too much for him.
“It’s fine. My big brother is coming out,” said Ye Chaomu as a charming smile bloomed on her face.
But soon, the smile vanished. That was because, apart from Xiang Shaoyun, she also saw the two beauties by his side. She felt displeased seeing them.
“Little Mu, you’re finally here!” Xiang Shaoyun called out in joy.
He rushed forward, his heart filled with joy. In his heart, Ye Chaomu was the person closest to him. Although they weren’t biologically related, that did not stop them from having a strong relations.h.i.+p.
Ye Chaomu got off the green-eyed cat and jumped toward Xiang Shaoyun as she cried out, “Big brother!”
She dove into his arms unhesitatingly. She buried her bountiful chest right into Xiang Shaoyun’s body, allowing him to feel clearly just how much she had grown. Xiang Shaoyun, who originally had no distracting thoughts, immediately felt a flame rising within him. The girl in his arms was simply too charming.
Of the many women he had met, Yu Caidie and the frozen women were probably the only ones that could compare with her. Even Tuoba Wan’er and Gong Qinyin were somewhat lacking compared to her. However, Xiang Shaoyun couldn’t really put into words just where they were lacking.
It was at that moment that Xiang Shaoyun sensed a thick devilish aura in Ye Chaomu’s body. Others might not be able to sense it, but when he hugged her, some sort of indescribable resonance formed between them.
What is going on here? Does Little Mu have devil blood in her just like me? wondered Xiang Shaoyun inwardly.
“Big brother, I missed you!” said Ye Chaomu as she hugged him tightly.
The others might have thought that this was merely a normal interaction between siblings, but Xiang Shaoyun sensed a different sentiment from her voice. After all, Ye Chaomu once made it clear that she really liked him. The love she had for him was not the familial type. Rather, it was the type between a man and a woman.
Xiang Shaoyun quickly threw away all the distracting thoughts and gently stroked her head as he said, “I missed you as well, little sister.”
His emphasis on “little sister” was an attempt to remind both of them that they were siblings, not lovers. Of course, he deeply cared for her. However, he had always viewed himself as her elder brother and had never intended to have a romantic relations.h.i.+p with her.
Ye Chaomu let go of Xiang Shaoyun, and as she looked at his face that was right before her, she planted a kiss on his lips unhesitatingly. Xiang Shaoyun was completely stunned. The people around them were stunned as well.
“Liuhui, are they really siblings?” asked Tuoba Wan’er, finding it hard to accept.
“I guess so, b-but they aren’t really biologically related,” said Xia Liuhui gloomily.
Back when he had first seen her, he had fallen deeply for her. Alas, he had lacked confidence and did not have the courage to court her. Also, Ye Chaomu had shown Xiang Shaoyun affection back then. As a bystander, he saw everything clearly.
At this time, Xia Yingying said, “My young lady and Young Master Xiang might refer to each other as siblings, but the young lady loves him deeply.”
Xia Yingying had been staying by Ye Chaomu’s side for a while. She deeply wors.h.i.+pped her, and she believed that Ye Chaomu and Xiang Shaoyun were meant for each other. She would speak the truth despite knowing of the relations.h.i.+p between Xiang Shaoyun and the two women by his side.
Tuoba Wan’er and Gong Qinyin exchanged glances, a look of vigilance in their eyes.
