Chapter 1569: By Whose Means
Wang Songshan and Fang Tian’s faces reddened when Wang Ruoshui scolded that they ‘have no shame’. Indeed, it was inexcusable for them as elders to play such a joke on their juniors.
Fang Tian especially didn’t dare to make another sound and lowered his head after being scolded by Wang Ruoshui. It was as if he had just been bullied. Although Wang Songshan hated Fang Tian’s cowardice secretly, he had no choice but to solely stand up for the plan that they had both discussed. “Ruoshui, don’t be angry. It is because these two juniors didn’t recognize our good intentions. We had set such a blissful engagement for them, yet they didn’t appreciate it. So, Old Fang and I just wanted to teach them a lesson! Ruoshui, you saw it too. Our little friend Yang Ming was so determined in canceling the engagement before this!”
Wang Songshan said secretly. I’m sorry, little friend Yang Ming. I can only transfer the blame to you. Otherwise, I will be scolded. I must save myself ah.
Sure enough, Wang Songshan’s move had turned the tables. He had transferred the blame onto Yang Ming without leaving a trace! As Wang Ruoshui heard this, she thought about Yang Ming’s various behaviors in calling off the engagement before. She became angry immediately. Indeed, this kid really didn’t know how to appreciate a favor. She kindly wanted to let her niece marry him, yet he rejected desperately. He even suggested a ridiculous idea like having a draw in their fight just to achieve his purpose. Wang Ruoshui was still thankful as he had helped the Butterfly Family through a tough obstacle afterward. It’s just that once she thought about Yang Ming’s intentions, there was not a single bit of gratitude left at all. The reason was simple; Yang Ming’s intentions were not pure. The reason he had helped the Butterfly Family was just because he wanted to call off the engagement!
“Yang Ming, how is my niece not good enough for you?” Wang Ruoshui raised her eyebrows at Yang Ming immediately when she thought of this, “You wanted to call off the engagement by every means possible? Now that you’ve seen that my niece is your beloved, you no longer want to call it off? What is the rationale for this? How is it possible for our Butterfly Family to accept this? Do you think that our Butterfly Family is easy to bully? That it is up to you whether to call it off or to proceed with the engagement? Don’t you think that you’ve attached too little importance to our Butterfly Family, as well as I, Wang Ruoshui? By whose means do you dare to be so arrogant?”
Wang Songshan didn’t expect that his simple sentence would make Wang Ruoshui so upset. He looked at Yang Ming and said in his heart. I didn’t think that my sister’s temper would be so explosive. Pray for yourself!
Wang Ruoshui’s last sentence, “By whose means do you dare to be so arrogant” was obviously directed at Fang Tian. Fang Tian lowered his head immediately the moment Wang Ruoshui said this sentence. He didn’t even dare to breathe out loud.
Yang Ming scolded silently. This woman Wang Ruoshui is taking out all her anger toward Old Man Fang on me. Who did I offend? How am I so unlucky? This is a disaster.
It seems that if I don’t cut the knot and settle this quickly, Wang Ruoshui will always be huge trouble! Whenever she is reminded of this in the future, she will always use it as an excuse to take it out on me. How can I put up with that? If things go south and she forces me to compete with her, will I still be alive? Yang Ming really couldn’t do much to someone who was Fang Tian’s old lover and Wang Xiaoyan’s aunt!
Originally, Yang Ming already had huge scruples. Now, she had another layer of identity as Wang Xiaoyan’s aunt. This meant that she was also his aunt. Yang Ming could only be treated as a punching bag if he were to compete with her. How could he possibly fight back?
Therefore, Yang Ming had to resolve this huge trouble once and for all. Otherwise, his future will be finished.
Of course, it was impossible to finish this matter once and for all by defeating Wang Ruoshui directly. Yang Ming’s idea was to convince Wang Ruoshui wholeheartedly and not give her any chance to argue back. She also must not be able to reason against it.
This was indeed a little difficult to handle. Yang Ming’s strengths lay in fighting and killing people, but he couldn’t use them at this moment. It really gave Yang Ming a headache. Since he couldn’t battle with martial arts, an IQ battle would have to do.
“Yang Ming, why don’t you say something? By whose means do you dare to deceive us to this extent?” Wang Ruoshui snorted and questioned intensely when she saw that Yang Ming was silent and his expression was changing erratically.
In Wang Ruoshui’s opinion, the only so-called means of Yang Ming was Fang Tian. It would be settled as long as Yang Ming said Fang Tian’s name. She would then drag the old brat Fang Tian into this and settle them at once!
Wang Ruoshui had accumulated deep grievances with Fang Tian. Although there were some changes in the past two days, how was it possible for a heart’s resentment to be resolved just like that? Yet Fang Tian was still obedient toward her, making it hard for her to find an excuse to get angry! In fact, Wang Ruoshui was hoping that Fang Tian would be a little firmer so she could cry and make a fuss at him. This would be a little more relieving. However, Fang Tian didn’t let her achieve her wish!
So, Wang Ruoshui deliberately directed the flame onto Fang Tian while she was teaching Yang Ming a lesson. Her anger would be transferred successfully onto Fang Tian as long as Yang Ming cooperated. Yang Ming would only be an innocent victim.
How could Yang Ming know about Wang Ruoshui’s complicated thoughts? Yang Ming was somewhat scared seeing her stare directly at him! Hearing that she had directed her anger deliberately onto Fang Tian, Yang Ming actually thought that she wanted to take it out on both the teacher and the apprentice together! Yang Ming said in his heart. No matter what, Fang Tian is still my master. I am usually disrespectful toward him, but at crucial moments, I have to be loyal. I can’t just sell Fang Tian out like that!
Moreover, Old Man Fang and Wang Ruoshui’s relationship was complex. It was established that the two of them would end up together. So, it was hard to guarantee that Fang Tian and Wang Ruoshui wouldn’t team up and denounce him after a few days if he were to sell Fang Tian out now.
That’s right! As Yang Ming thought about Fang Tian and Wang Ruoshui’s relationship, the lightbulb above his head lit up! He had thought of a solution!
A graceful arc swept across the corner of Yang Ming’s mouth. “To say whose means I’m depending on… This is inappropriate to mention, right?”
“What’s not appropriate to say?” Wang Ruoshui snorted, “Just say whatever you have to say!”
“Then… I’m really going to say it, okay?” Yang Ming pretended to be nervous. “But… This really isn’t appropriate to say!”
“Yang Ming, say it quickly. As a grown man, what are you dilly-dallying about?” Wang Ruoshui was a little impatient upon hearing Yang Ming repeating himself. She glared at him and scolded.
“Alright then, I’m going to say it…” Yang Ming sighed and shrugged.
Fang Tian’s face turned pale as soon as Yang Ming opened his mouth. He scolded silently, You kid are too unfaithful, aren’t you? Can’t you just take the shot for me? You’re actually thinking of shifting Wang Ruoshui’s anger onto me? Aren’t you too disrespectful? What’s the use of having you as my disciple?
“Are you going to say it? Spit it out!” Wang Ruoshui said anxiously.
“Actually, the reason why I have no fear and seem to not be worried about anything is that I have someone supporting me. They are incredibly powerful. No one in the whole Butterfly Family would dare to offend them! Uncle Wang, even as the master of the Butterfly Family, you can’t too!” Yang Ming shook his head as he said this. “If you see this person, you will also have to give way!”
Everyone present was stunned at once when they heard Yang Ming’s words. However, Wang Songshan and Wang Ruoshui’s faces showed anger. They could somewhat guess who Yang Ming’s support was!
Is it someone from the Buffon Family? Someone who the Butterfly Family’s master Wang Songshan did not dare to offend could only be someone from the Buffon Family, right? However, even if this is the case, how can I maintain my face as the Butterfly Family’s master now that you have said this in front of so many people? Where do you even put our Butterfly Family?
Although Wang Ruoshui had questioned Yang Ming intensely earlier, she didn’t have any bad intentions. She just wanted to teach Fang Tian a lesson. The so-called ‘by whose means’ was obvious to those smart people that Wang Ruoshui was directing it to Fang Tian!
However, she didn’t expect that Yang Ming would actually bring another person into this. Wasn’t this obvious bullying? Even if the Butterfly Family really couldn’t offend people from the Buffon Family, he couldn’t just say so, right?
“Yang Ming, who is this person that you’re talking about?” Wang Ruoshui’s face froze and her tone dulled.
Fang Tian’s forehead was also sweating with anxiety. He said in his heart, Yang Ming is indeed too young. How can he bring up external forces in this situation? How should the Butterfly Family consider this?
Nobody was more anxious than Wang Xiaoyan! If these words of Yang Ming had offended her father and her aunt, how could she possibly end up with Yang Ming in the future? How could she face her family?
Chapter 1570: Diverting a Crisis with Words
Wang Xiaoyan couldn’t help but look toward Yang Ming worriedly when she thought of this. However, she met Yang Ming’s mysterious gaze coincidentally, and he winked at her. Wang Xiaoyan was a little taken aback, but she understood Yang Ming immediately because of her intelligence. She couldn’t help but cover her mouth to giggle. It seems that Yang Ming has a plan!
“Ai, my greatest support is actually my master’s wife. Once my master’s wife shows herself, no one would dare fight her. Even my master would turn into a big softy immediately. He is the King of Assassins, yet he, too, needs to give way!” Yang Ming shook his head as he said.
“Your master’s wife?” Wang Ruoshui’s expression stilled at this instant. She looked at Yang Ming blankly, “Who is your master’s wife?”
It was no wonder that Wang Ruoshui was confused. Yang Ming’s master is Fang Tian, but when did Yang Ming get himself a master’s wife? One of Fang Tian’s wives died a long time ago, and the other was caught a long time ago. It seems that the one that was caught has also died. So where exactly did Yang Ming’s master’s wife come from?
“Puchi…” Wang Ruoshui was in the game, but Wang Songshan was the onlooker. The onlooker sees more of the game. Seeing Yang Ming’s proud and fearless expression, Wang Songshan understood who Yang Ming meant as his master’s wife instantly! He couldn’t help but laugh out loud. “Sure enough, once your master’s wife shows herself, even I will have to give way! It’s true; it’s really true!”
Old man Fang Tian felt inexplicable when he heard Yang Ming’s words. He was trying to make sense of it, Besides me, does Yang Ming have another master? It was no wonder that Fang Tian would think this way as he was clear that he didn’t have a wife. So, he would naturally feel ineffable when Yang Ming mentioned a master’s wife whom he didn’t even know about.
However, after Wang Songshan laughed, Fang Tian also realized what was going on. These two old men had been friends their entire life and shared the same thoughts. So, when Wang Songshan laughed, Fang Tian became clear and laughed along with him. He no longer cared about Yang Ming calling him a softy anymore. Because in the presence of this master’s wife, so what if he was considered a softy?
“What are you two laughing about?” Wang Ruoshui was even more baffled by Wang Songshan and Fang Tian’s laughter. She couldn’t help but scold them, “You, don’t you feel ashamed that someone said a master like you will have to give way for a woman? How can you still laugh? And you, someone said that you turn into a softy at the sight of that woman, yet you can still laugh? The two of you… are really, really… How do I say this?”
“I’m being scolded by you now, how can I not give way? So what if I’m the master? You still dare to scold me, right?” Wang Songshan laughed bitterly.
“Me too. I don’t even dare to answer back when I’m being scolded by you. I don’t even dare to lift my head. If I’m not a softy, what am I…” Fang Tian also laughed bitterly.
“That’s you in front of me! But that master’s wife…” Wang Ruoshui stopped abruptly as soon as she said this. Her face reddened suddenly. She had finally understood who Yang Ming’s master’s wife was!
It was no wonder that Wang Songshan and Fang Tian would suddenly laugh out loud. It was no wonder that they would then say those two weird sentences. It appears that the master’s wife, is actually me?
As Wang Ruoshui thought about her relationship with Fang Tian, she also understood that it was just a matter of time before they end up together. However, to have Yang Ming call her his master’s wife in public, even Wang Ruoshui who was already at such age couldn’t help but blush!
Although Wang Ruoshui was no longer a young little girl, her emotions towards Fang Tian was no different from a little girl in love. She was happy one second, then angry the next.
Although her relationship with Fang Tian seemed to have eased a little, there was always some kind of gap between them. This was also why Wang Ruoshui wanted to grab this opportunity to find fault with Fang Tian!
However, Wang Ruoshui only felt as if her heart had suddenly opened up when Yang Ming exposed their identities in front of her brother and nieve. The grievances and unhappiness that were suppressed in her heart had all disappeared instantly.
And all of this solely came from Yang Ming’s ‘master’s wife’! It’s true. When I get together with Fang Tian, wouldn’t I become this kid’s master’s wife? To say that this kid came by my means isn’t wrong! Isn’t it true that in the Butterfly Family, even my brother, the current master, will also have to let me have my way? As for his master Fang Tian, hmph hmph, so what if he is a softy in front of me? It’s normal!
Wang Ruoshui’s intestines were knotted up. Her initial anger had turned as soft as silk. She no longer held her previous disgust towards Yang Ming. Now, she only liked him more and more! Because of the title ‘master’s wife’, Wang Ruoshui’s attitude and identity had changed greatly!
It’s true. I am this kid’s master’s wife. How can I still make things difficult for him? I should help him instead! Since he and my niece are in love, I should just fulfill their wish.
“Master’s wife, hehe. I’ll make up for the apprenticeship ceremony next time. However, you must not look to compete with me anymore. How can I be your opponent?” Yang Ming continued to praise her. He laughed and said, “Plus, if master’s wife were to fight me, wouldn’t that be bullying the weak?”
“I— I—” Wang Ruoshui’s mind was disrupted because of Yang Ming. She no longer cared to teach Yang Ming a lesson. Her face felt as if it was burning. She turned around. “You guys talk. I’m going to rest…”
After speaking, Wang Ruoshui didn’t care what everyone else was thinking and turned to walk out of the restaurant door quickly.
“Master, aren’t you going to grab this opportunity?” Yang Ming reminded as he smiled wryly at Fang Tian who was at the corner.
“En, I’m also going to rest. You guys talk…” How could Fang Tian not understand what Yang Ming meant? He left a word and ran like the wind in the direction of Wang Ruoshui.
At this point, only Wang Songshan, Yang Ming, and Wang Xiaoyan were left in the restaurant. The three of them looked at one another. Alas, Wang Songshan and Wang Xiaoyan’s gazes were focused on Yang Ming. They evaluated him from head to toe.
“Ahem— Uncle Wang, Yanyan, why are you two looking at me like that?” Yang Ming got goosebumps from their gazes.
“Little friend Yang Ming, I didn’t know that you have a quick wit!” Wang Songshan laughed thoughtfully. “Your words not only solved your problem but also solved your master’s problem. You even let Ruoshui and Old Man Fang remember your deed! I really bow down to your mind games. You’re really a young hero!”
“Er, Uncle Wang, you’re flattering me…” Yang Ming broke a sweat. “Actually, all humans are forced to be quick-witted in an emergency. Without this environment, there’s no way I would be able to think of this…”
“But no matter what, the thing between Yanyan and you is finalized!” Wang Songshan nodded. “Oh right, as for the thing earlier, you won’t resent your master and I, will you?”
“Uncle Wang, you’re kidding. How can I resent you…” Yang Ming laughed bitterly. “Forget it. This is also my fault as well as Yanyan’s. We lacked communication. We can’t blame anyone else.”
“Father, you still dare to say this?” Wang Xiaoyan was still a little dissatisfied. “Look at me. The tattoo on my hand will be difficult to clean!”
“I told you to dress better, but you didn’t listen!” Wang Songshan said innocently.
“——” Wang Xiaoyan was speechless. Who would dare to dress better previously?
The Butterfly Family’s dinner party turned out to be just for three. Only Yang Ming, Wang Songshan, and Wang Xiaoyan were in the restaurant. The three of them had a tacit understanding not to ask where Fang Tian and Wang Ruoshui had gone. They also couldn’t be bothered. Of course, the two of them had gone on a date.
“Did the Lancer Family respond?” Yang Ming asked.
“Not yet. However, asking them to present Goode’s head personally seems to be putting them in a difficult situation.” Wang Songshan shrugged. “If I were Thomas, I wouldn’t do it.”
“Hehe, you wouldn’t? That’s okay. If he won’t do it, then we’ll get it ourselves after a few days.” Yang Ming smiled as he said calmly.
“Of course, isn’t it easy to kill a Goode?” Wang Songshan did not doubt that he or Yang Ming had the ability to acquire Goode’s head. Wang Songshan no longer felt the need to be careful now that the Lancer Family was a loser. The only obstacle, the firearms supply, had been resolved. In Wang Songshan’s view, the Lancer Family was nothing.
