Chapter 13: Sheng Xiao: He’s blind and shallow
“Master Sheng, this way please.” Fan Sheng, the owner of the restaurant, smiled warmly as he led Sheng Xiao to the private room. His respectful manner left everyone speechless.
Anyone affluent would know that Fan Sheng’s true master was His Majesty’s younger brother, the prince of the Ink Moon Tower. The only people who could make Fan Sheng bow and greet them were the dukes and nobles, and only the Patriarchs of the six major cultivation families.
However, the six Patriarchs were all old, while the young man in front of them was a young and handsome man. It was obvious that he wasn’t them.
His surname was Sheng, and he was already a Beast Tamer at such a young age. There was only one such person in the entire Divine Moon Kingdom—
No one in the Divine Moon Empire dared to neglect Sheng Xiao.
Not only was he the young master of the Sheng Clan, but he was also the youngest Monarch-level Beast Tamer in the history of cultivation on the Holy Spirit Continent!
In the Holy Spirit Continent, all those who had awakened their beast forms were called Beast Tamers.
There were strict rankings for Beast Tamers. According to the strength of the Beast Tamer, they were divided into Scholar, Master, Supreme Master, Grand Master, Prime Master, and the Divine Master that only existed in legends! Currently, on the Holy Spirit Continent, there were more than a million recorded Scholars, hundreds of Masters, tens of thousands of Supreme Masters, thousands of Grand Masters, and only three Prime Masters.
And the legendary Divine Master was an illusory existence.
How far a Beast Tamer could go depended on their talent and hard work. Some Beast Tamers would never be able to break through the realm of a Scholar even after cultivating for their entire lives. For a slightly more talented Beast Tamer, to be able to reach the realm of a Master before the age of 40 was considered outstanding.
That was why five years ago, when Sheng Xiao broke through to the level of a Scholar at the age of 20 and became a Master, it caused a huge commotion in the entire Holy Spirit Continent! Because he broke the record of the cultivation world of the Holy Spirit Continent and became the youngest Master Beast Tamer on the continent!
The entire Divine Moon Empire was proud to have Sheng Xiao as their peerless genius!
Sheng Xiao, who had such a terrifying cultivation talent, had a bright future ahead of him. Not only Fan Sheng, but even the master behind Fan Sheng had to treat Sheng Xiao with respect.
Once they knew that the young man was Sheng Xiao, everyone looked at him with fervent gazes!
“It’s Master Sheng!”
“Something big must have happened for Master Sheng to come to the Prosperous Capital!”
When Yu Huang heard the discussions around her, she turned her head to look at the tall figure. She recognized him as the person who had lended her the fountain pen at the hospital. Yu Huang was very surprised.
He was the legendary number one cultivation genius of the Divine Moon Empire, Sheng Xiao?
Yu Huang found some of Sheng Xiao’s memories from the Host. The Host had never seen Sheng Xiao in her entire life, but she knew everything about him like the back of her hand. It could be said that there was no girl in the entire Divine Moon Empire who did not love Sheng Xiao!
If Xuanyuan Jing was the heavenly star, then Sheng Xiao was definitely the underwater moon.
You could take a plane to every planet, but you would never be able to catch the moon in the water. Sheng Xiao was the underwater moon that countless girls wanted but did not dare try to have.
Yu Donghai had long been dumbstruck by this scene, and he sighed lightly as he said, “This young man is extremely radiant.” After he glanced at Yu Huang, Yu Donghai muttered in a very low voice. “I think this kid is much more outstanding than that kid, Xuanyuan. He’s suitable for you!”
Yu Huang glared at Yu Donghai when she heard that. “Father, don’t talk nonsense. People will laugh if they hear it!” Since everyone was paying attention to Sheng Xiao, no one noticed them.
Although she had met Sheng Xiao once, Yu Huang was not naive enough to think that he had a deep impression of her.
She was an old monster who had lived for more than two hundred years. She lived rationally and thoroughly. She knew very well that a woman who could be remembered by such an outstanding man should also be an outstanding woman. Only a toad and a love-struck fool would dream of being remembered by a big shot that they had only met once.
And she was still a nobody.
Even if she was attracted by Sheng Xiao’s outstanding qualities one day, she would not be stupid enough to think that Sheng Xiao would take the initiative to walk toward her if she just stood still.
If she really fell in love with someone who was a hundred times more outstanding than her, Yu Huang would charge forward even if she had to overcome all obstacles. She would work hard to become more outstanding and powerful. Then, she would raise her head, straighten her chest, and walk in front of him. She would confidently say to him, “I want you!”
On the other side, Fan Sheng led Sheng Xiao to the private room. When they passed by the stairs, he reminded Sheng Xiao carefully, “Master Sheng, be careful of the steps.”
Sheng Xiao was about to walk up the stairs when he felt a curious gaze on him. He paused for a moment and turned to look at the small table in the corner.
Yu Donghai felt embarrassed when he noticed that Sheng Xiao had noticed him. He quickly lowered his head to avoid Sheng Xiao’s gaze.
Sheng Xiao only glanced at Yu Donghai’s face once before his gaze landed on Yu Huang, who was sitting opposite him. The young girl sat calmly in a corner and ate her food quietly. Compared to the feverish customers around her, her attitude was cold.
This time, she was not wearing a veil. The right side of her face, which was full of burn scars, was facing Sheng Xiao. She did look scary. However, the girl’s hazel eyes were calm and gentle.
Sheng Xiao felt that Yu Huang was a very interesting girl. She was arrogant and fiesty when she talked back to Xuanyuan Jing. But when she was calm, she seemed graceful and composed.
Such a girl reminded Sheng Xiao of the cactus on the window sill of his dormitory. Compared to those beautiful flowers, Sheng Xiao admired cactus more.
For a species like the cactus, as long as it was given a bit of soil, it would be able to extend its tentacles to firmly grab onto the soil and absorb every drop of water. It would be able to thrive.
Being resilient was even rarer than being beautiful.
Sheng Xiao thought for a while and walked toward Yu Huang. When he got closer, he saw that Yu Huang did not notice his approach. He took the initiative to greet her. “What a coincidence.”
The man’s voice was cold to the bone, but clear as a lake.
This voice suddenly sounded beside Yu Huang’s ear, stunning her. Yu Huang raised her head and looked at Master Sheng, who was standing beside her table. A hint of surprise appeared on her face.
Sheng Junshi still remembered her?
After witnessing Xuanyuan Jing breaking off their engagement, it was normal for Sheng Xiao to remember her.
Yu Huang stood up and asked respectfully, “Master Sheng, are you looking for me?”
Sheng Xiao noticed that her attitude was respectful. She was not as easygoing as she was when they met at the hospital. He thought that Yu Huang did not remember him. He reminded her, “We met at the hospital garden before.”
It was definitely not honorable for Yu Huang to be watched by Sheng Xiao. She felt awkward and explained, “I didn’t know Sheng Junshi’s identity and it was rude of me. I’m sorry.”
Sheng Xiao raised his eyebrows and said, “You did well.” Seeing that Yu Huang was in low spirits, Sheng Xiao felt that he should say something to comfort her. He thought for a while and said to Yu Huang in a serious tone, “He is stupid, blind and shallow. You should be happy that you broke off the engagement with such an idiot.”
Yu Huang: “?”
This number one genius was different from what she had imagined. Was it really appropriate to disparage someone behind his back?
