The Legendary Siblings Chapter 83

Su Ying cried, “Because a sick person who takes this pill, his illness will worsen ten times, if a person who’s not sick took this pill, he will immediately be plagued by a hundred illnesses, and his whole body will be in great pain…”

Jiang Yu Lang cried hoarsely, “Miss… I have no enmity with Miss, why would Miss want to harm me thus.”

Su Ying laughed, “Didn’t you say that you are deathly sick! I did not wish to treat you as a shameless liar, so I gave you this medicine out of the kindness of my heart. If you were really sick, then it means you weren’t lying… besides, I was afraid that your illness will take a long time to heal, so I kindly massaged your stomach to help the medicine work faster.”

She sighed and continued sadly, “Look, I was being so nice to you, and you didn’t even thank me.”

Jiang Yu Lang was shocked, scared and in pain, the sweat on his head running down like rain and he stammered, “Miss Su… Elder Su… I… only now do I know your prowess, please, on the account of Bai Shan Jun and his wife, let me off.”

Su Ying replied, “Aiyo, I actually forgot that you’re Bai Shan Jun and his wife’s friend.”

Jiang Yu Lang stuttered, “Miss… Miss must not forget it.”

Su Ying sighed, “That’s right, since you are their friend, I can’t just watch you die of illness here, no matter what I have to save you… a pity that this medicine is not a poison, so there’s no antidote. You’ve eaten it down… what can be done?”

Jiang Yu Lang pleaded, “Please, Miss, Miss must certainly have a way out.”

Su Ying clapped her hands and exclaimed, “That’s it, I’ve thought of a way.”

Jiang Yu Lang asked in joy, “What way?”

Su Ying replied, “I only have to split your stomach open and take the pill out.”

Jiang Yu Lang choked, “Split my stomach open?”

Su Ying said gently, “Don’t you worry, I will certainly cut it gently, and take the pill out gently, you will not feel an ounce of pain.”

Jiang Yu Lang can’t help but reply with a bitter look, “Once the stomach is cut open, the person would be dead, would he still feel pain?”

Su Ying clasped her hands and laughed, “You’re really a smart person.”

She chuckled, “This is the secret method that has been passed down our family for stopping pain. Cut off the hand if it hurts, cut off the leg if it hurts, cut of the head if it hurts, cut up the stomach if it hurts, it’s guaranteed to be a miracle cure.”

As she spoke, she walked away, mumbling, “Where’s the knife… where’s the knife…:

Jiang Yu Lang exclaimed in alarm, “Miss… Miss please don’t…”

Su Ying asked, “Don’t you want me to cure you anymore?”

Jiang Yu Lang replied hoarsely, “No, no.”

Su Ying sighed, “Since you refuse, there’s nothing I can do, but this is your own idea, you can’t blame me for not saving you, right?”

Jiang Yu Lang agreed, “Right, right, right. Extremely right.”

Su Ying asked, “Do you know now, who is the world’s greatest fool now?”

Jiang Yu Lang said with a bitter look, “It’s me, I am the world’s greatest fool, greatest scoundrel, greatest…” He actually can’t help but start bawling.

Su Ying smiled, “Useless, such a big man and still crying, it really makes me feel bad seeing this.” Her hand reached into the armrest of the chair again and lightly pressed, and the bed suddenly bounced, together with Jiang Yu Lang on it. A hole appeared on the ground behind the bed and with a scream, Jiang Yu Lang fell into the hole, sliding down as if he was on a slide.

Su Ying smiled lightly, “One crying, one laughing, these two are really a match made in heaven, so I’ll let you keep each other company…”

As she spoke, the bed settled on the ground again, the hole covered up again.

In the distance that person can be heard shouting again, “There’s no meaning in drinking alone, Lass Su, come and accompany me.”

Su Ying sighed and said with a bitter smile, “He is really the bane of my life, why am I at a loss once I see him.”

Behind this porch the flowers grew thick like cotton, on the little hill grew fine trees. At the bottom of the hill there’s a cave, the lamp inside shining as bright as day, and decorated even more comfortably than the room of a rich young girl. But at the mouth of the cave there are iron bars, thicker than a little child’s arms.

Right now, inside the cave, a person was sitting at the side of the table drinking wine by the cupful. His head was hanging, his feet bare, he was wearing a loose and large white robe, and he looked extremely hilarious indeed.

He was facing the inside, and his face cant be seen clearly, but he kept yelling “Lass Su, if you still won’t come, I will…”

Su Ying said gently, “Aren’t I here now? I’ve never seen someone as impatient as you.”

That person banged the table and yelled, “Are you complaining that I’m impatient now? I’m born with a temper like that, if you’re not used to seeing it, you can not look!”

Su Ying lowered her head, her tears almost flowing out.

That person suddenly laughed, “But if I have no wish to see you, why would I be so anxious to ask you here. As people always said, a day without meeting, is akin to three autumns without meeting, but I cannot not see you for even a single moment.”

Su Ying can’t help but break into smiles amid her tears, and biting her lips, said with a laugh, “I know that this life of mine, will surely die of frustration because of you.”

That person laughed loudly, “You must never die, once you’re dead, who will drink with me?”

He turned around as he laughed, the light shone on his face.

His face was spotted and there were countless knife scars, and he seems like a horribly ugly person at first. However, on a closer look, it seems that there’s not a single scar on his face. His eyes were large and bright, his nose straight and upright, his thin lips, lazy smile…isn’t this person the one who cannot be cut away, cannot be abandoned, making one think of him day and night, the loveable and yet hateful Xiao Yu’er?

Su Ying saw Xiao Yu’er turn around, and her eyes shone. She said with a gentle laugh, “Since you want me to come and drink with you, why didn’t you bring the cup over.”

Xiao Yu’er blinked his eyes and said with a grin, “Since you’ve come to accompany me to drink, why won’t you come in.”

Su Ying shook her head and smiled, “I’ll drink with you outside here, isn’t it the same?”

Xiao Yu’er replied with a straight face, “How can that be the same, you must sit beside me, talk with me, only then can I drink my wine. Didn’t I say earlier how much I miss you.”

Su Ying’s eyes glimmered, her cheeks showing a slight blush, and she lowered her head and said with a smile, “I’m outside here anyway, you can still see me.”

Xiao Yu’er suddenly jumped up and scolded, “You stinking lass, stupid lass, who wants you to come and drink with me, scram quickly!”

Su Ying was actually not angry at all, and just laughed, “Anyway, even if you try to flatter me, I won’t go in, if you scold me, I stilll would not go in.”

Xiao Yu’er roared, “Why won’t you come in, are you afraid I’ll eat you up? I’m not Li Da Zui.”

Su Ying smiled, “I know you do not eat humans, but once I open the door to go in, you will take the chance to dash out, right?”

Xiao Yu’er snarled and said frostily, “You are not the worm in my stomach, how do you know what I’m thinking?”

Su Ying only laughed lightly, not saying anything at all.

Xiao Yu’er walked a few rounds inside and suddenly stopped in front of her, saying with a smile, “I know you’re a good person, and you treat me very well. You’re not angry even when I scold you, but why must you lock me up here?”

Su Ying said slowly, “You’re one who loves action, and impatient as well. If I do not lock you up, you must have long gone by now, but you have not recovered from your injury yet. Once you move, it will become worse.”

Xiao Yu’er smiled, “So you have good intentions after all.”

Su Ying smiled, but who would have expected Xiao Yu’er to suddenly jump up again and shouted, “But I care naught for you good intentions. Whether I live or die is none of your business, so don’t think that just because you saved me, I will obey you and be grateful to you…”

Su Ying lowered her head and said, “I… I did not ask you to be grateful to me, right?”

Xiao Yu’er walked another seven, eight rounds inside, and suddenly smiled, “Tell me the truth, why did you save me, I really cannot understand why.”

Su Ying was silent for a moment before saying slowly, “That day, I happened to go to ‘Heaven Outside Heaven’…”

She had only said one sentence when Xiao Yu’er jumped up again and yelled angrily, “What ‘Heaven Outside Heaven’, that is just a rat hole.”

Su Ying smiled in surprise, “Fine, even if that is a rat hole, you need not be so angry.”

Xiao Yu’er asked loudly, “Why shouldn’t I be angry, now I get a headache once I hear the word ‘rat’.”

Su Ying replied, “But you are the one who said the word, I didn’t say it.”

Xiao Yu’er pulled a face, “I get a headache hearing others say it, so naturally I get a worse headache hearing myself say it.”

Su Ying tried to control her laughter and said, “Can’t you not say it then, no one forced you to say it.”

Xiao Yu’er replied, “My mouth itches if I don’t say it, I…” As he said these, he himself can’t help but almost burst out laughing, he himself felt that he is really quite unreasonable. He turned his head around, controlled his urge to laugh and said, “Why didn’t you continue talking?”

Su Ying continued, “That day, I happened to go to Heaven…. to ra…” She suddenly realized that she cannot say the words ‘Heaven Outside Heaven’, nor the word ‘rat’, and can’t help but feel the hilarity of it. She could only bit on her lips and said, “That day, I went to that place to collect the herbs they bought for me, but who would have expected that I’ll see you there. You were there coincidentally as well.”

Xiao Yu’er commented, “It’s my bad luck that I went to that ghastly place, and it’s your bad luck to bump into me.”

Su Ying smiled and continued, “But when I saw you that day, you did not look like you’re having any bad luck at all. Although the clothes you wore were tattered and torn, but your bearing was as if you wore the world’s most magnificent and expensive clothes.”

Xiao Yu’er sat down, propped his leg up and asked, “Besides that? Not only was I regal, but I’m not too bad looking as well.”

Su Ying covered her mouth in a smile, “That’s right, you’re really not too bad looking, especially your eyes.”

Xiao Yu’er raised his voice, “My brows, my nose, my mouth are not good looking then?”

Su Ying giggled, “From the top of your head to your toes, there’s nowhere which it’s not good looking… is that enough?”

Xiao Yu’er drank a mouthful of wine, and laughed, “Hmm… that’s better…”

Su Ying was laughing so hard that she almost couldn’t breathe, “I am not one who is easily shocked, but when I saw you, I…”

Xiao Yu’er laughed loudly, “When you saw me, your eyes turned straight, your mouth gaped open, you looked as if you’ve seen a big head ghost. At that time I really felt like stuffing a large egg into your mouth.”

Su Ying guffawed, “That was because I was feeling perplexed. How did you manage to find… find that place.”

Xiao Yu’er was silent for a moment, and replied with a frown, “Of course there must be a reason for that, but you… you need not know it, because no matter how I manage to find that ghastly place, it’s none of your business.”

Su Ying sighed, “What bewildered me even more, is that you were not afraid at all when you were there.”

Xiao Yu’er laughed coldly, “What is there to be afraid of, I’ve seen lots of places that are even more horrible and terrifying.”

Su Ying asked, “But have you seen anyone more… more frightening than Wei Wu Ya?”

It was as if Xiao Yu’er could not speak anymore suddenly, the hand that was holding onto the wine cup seems to be shaking, that even the wine in the cup is almost spilling over.

Su Ying sighed again, “From the time I was seven or eight, I had to see him almost every two to three days, but until now, when I see him, I still feel like shivering as well.”

Xiao Yu’er banged the cup on the table and shouted, “I am not afraid of him, I just felt sickening, that face of his, that look is totally not human at all… He looks as if Heaven had taken a rat, a fox and a wolf, tore them up, and then mixed with a bottle of poison and a bowl of stinking water, a living ghost made out of these.”

Su Ying can’t help but laugh again, “This mouth of yours is really wicked, but you have really described him so well.”

With a ‘humph’, Xiao Yu’er suddenly laughed as well, “To tell you the truth, when I saw the two of you, I really felt like laughing in my heart. The two of you sitting together, it looks like a fragrant crispy pigeon placed next to a pile of dog shit, there’s nothing more incompatible than that in the whole world.”

Su Ying lowered her head, and was silent for a moment before saying slowly, “He may not be a good person, but to me… to me he’s always been nice. These ten over years, he has never rejected any of my requests. No matter what I wanted, he will agree.”

Xiao Yu’er replied, “Humph, an ugly person flattering a little beauty, that is the most logical thing in the world.”

Su Ying was silent for a moment again, then she beamed and said, “He saw you barging in suddenly, and even had the guts to stare at him and yell, he was really shocked as well. For so many years, I have never seen anyone who could make his face change color, but when he saw you, it seems that even his eyes have turned green.

Xiao Yu’er raised his head and laughed madly, “It was most likely that he thought those rotten metal pieces outside the cave would be enough to stop me, but those things, in my eyes, is just child’s play.”

Su Ying replied, “It’s precisely because you were able to break through his eighteen traps, that’s why he was a little wary of you, so even though you were yelling at him, he just sat there unmoving.”

Xiao Yu’er interrupted, “Since he already knows my capabilities, why did he order those fools to their deaths?”

Su Ying explained, “He did not strike himself, but ordered his disciples to strike, because he wanted to test the level of your martial arts first. He knows that those people are not your match as well.”

Xiao Yu’er laughed loudly again, “Do you think that I know not what he was thinking? That’s why I deliberately made it such that he cannot guess the basis of my martial arts.”

Su Ying laughed, “Wei Wu Ya really did not expect that even he would not be able to see the basis of your martial arts.”

Xiao Yu’er added, “That’s why he kept sitting there and did not strike, right?”

Su Ying agreed.

Xiao Yu’er asked, “He can just sit there and see those people being beaten to death?”

Su Ying sighed, “Those people may be his disciples as well, but they have not been allowed into the inner hall yet, and are not the few of his beloved disciples. Besides, he does not take into heart at all the life and death of others. As long as it’s beneficial to him, even if he have to cut his own son’s head off as a gift to another, he would not even frown on it.”

Xiao Yu’er exclaimed angrily, “I’ve long known that this person is inhumane! Who would have expected that he’ll be worse than a beast!”

Su Ying sighed, “Who would have known that you would be tricked by him in the end.”

Xiao Yu’er glared, “What do you know, when it comes to battle of the wits, he’s far from it.”

Su Ying replied, “But you… you’re still…”

Xiao Yu’er sighed as well, “He may not win me in a battle of wits, but I cannot win him in a battle of strength. To tell you the truth, I really did not expect that beast’s martial arts to be so powerful.”

Su Ying replied, “It was said that twenty years ago, his martial arts were already one of the best in the world, that the ‘twelve Zodiacs’ can terrorize the martial arts realm, is solely because of his ability…”

Xiao Yu’er said, “He was not boasting. Those in the ‘Twelve Zodiacs’, I have seen two as well, but their martial arts are not even a tenth of his.”

Su Ying said, “Twenty years ago, he thought that he was invincible, but later he met the Floral Palace Princesses, and it seems that he suffered a great loss, that’s why he retired and hid here. These twenty years, he has been practicing his martial arts day and night. According to him, even if both the Floral Princesses were to attack together, he might not be afraid of them.”

Xiao Yu’er laughed loudly, “Now he’s boasting. Don’t talk about the Floral Princesses coming themselves, even if the disciples of the Floral Princesses were to come, he would not have an easy way out.”

Su Ying’s eyes shined, and asked, “How many disciples does the Floral Princesses have?”

Xiao Yu’er replied, “I don’t know about the females, but there’s only one male.”

Su Ying’s gaze fixed on him, “You… you and him are friends?”

Xiao Yu’er sighed, “I could have been friends with him, but now… now it seems like we must be enemies.”

Su Ying smiled, “Very good, excellent!”

Xiao Yu’er stared, “What’s so good?”

Su Ying lowered her head with a smile, no longer talking.

Naturally Xiao Yu’er did not understand her thoughts, and all the more did not know that Hua Wu Que is about to die. He stared at her for a moment before continuing, “I also knew that he wanted me to sit, and had wanted to use devious means to harm me. I was afraid of fighting with him based on brute strength, but I’m not afraid of a battle of wits, that’s why I sat down immediately.”

Su Ying smiled again and said, “There’s actually a trap on his chair, he just have to press with his hand, and the person sitting on the chair will fall into an abyss of knives. No matter how good that person’s martial arts is, he will not survive.”

Xiao Yu’er asked, “Is it really that powerful?”

Su Ying replied, “Not only is his martial arts formidable, he is also well versed in other unorthodox skills. He thought that he only had to release the trap and you will certainly die, so he did not wish to waste his energy fighting you.”

Xiao Yu’er commented, “I’m afraid he would never have thought that after he had triggered the trap, I would still be safely seated without moving.”

Su Ying mused, “Not only was he perplexed at that time, I was befuddled as well.”

Xiao Yu’er laughed loudly, “To tell you the truth, I’ve long realized that there’s something wrong with that chair, so although it looked as if I was seated, but my butt did not touch the chair at all.”

Su Ying smiled, “You’re really an imp.”

Xiao Yu’er continued, “I took the opportunity to scold him a little more, but who would have expected that old beast would have a shorter temper than me, and he actually jumped up to fight with me. Once I saw that he was about to strike, I knew I was going to be in trouble.”

“But you still fought with him for quite a while, That great battle, I’ve never seen one like it before.”

Xiao Yu’er sighed, “That old beast really is quite skillful, not only is his martial arts formidable, his strokes vicious, even his attacks were slick and underhanded. Even if my martial arts were better than his, I won’t be able to take any advantage of him at all.”

Su Ying said, “He himself had also made this comment, even if those whose martial arts are better than him, that person might not necessarily win, because no matter what strokes he executed, he made sure that he would not be at the losing end.”

Xiao Yu’er added, “Precisely because he retained 30% of his strength while fighting, that I can take him on for such a long time, but in my heart I knew, as soon as I’m careless, I would die in his hands.”

Su Ying sighed, “There really aren’t any survivors among those he defeated.”

Xiao Yu’er continued, “Since I know that sooner or later I will suffer under his hands, and I cannot even escape, I then decided, even if I were to die, I do not wish to die in the hands of someone like him.”

Su Ying fluttered, “That’s why you… you…”

Xiao Yu’er said, “That’s why I retreated step by step, until I reached the side of the wall.”

Su Ying said, “There’s also a trap on the side of that wall, once you step on it, knives will come flying out immediately.”

Xiao Yu’er laughed, “Do you think that I didn’t know that?”

Su Ying was surprised, “You knew? Why did you still go over if you knew?”

Xiao Yu’er laughed loudly, “It’s because I could see that there’s a trap along the wall, because I knew he wants to lure me there, that’s why I deliberately pretended to be forced to a corner by him, and stepped on that trap. When the flying knives shot out, I pretended that I could not dodge and received a knife.”

Su Ying was stunned and asked hoarsely, “Why? Why did you deliberately let yourself be trapped.”

Xiao Yu’er smiled, “Because I did not wish to die in his hands.”

“But do you know that there’s poison on the flying knives?”

Xiao Yu’er replied, “Even if there’s poison in the knives, it’s so much better than his ghastly claws. If I were clawed by him, death will be a certainty, that’s why I would rather take the knife.”

He continued with a loud laugh, “I deduced that once he saw me injured by the knife, he would not continue the fight, or else I would have to fight him to the death… So now you should know that I was not really tricked by him.”

Su Ying looked at him for a moment, and heaved a long sigh, “If we were to compare the dexterity in reacting to situations, the remarkable methods, the quick turn of wits, I’m afraid no one in the world can really compare to you.”

Xiao Yu’er pulled a face, “Don’t you know that I am the smartest person in the world?”
