As he watched his new subordinate leave the building, Luo Wusheng nodded in satisfaction.
These guys had certainly been through a tough time, being ostracized by the Demon Sect and then backstabbed when they came to the Demon Artifact Pavilion, even falling so low as to work in the brothel.
But the harder the experience, the better the person becomes. After going through so much hardship, they were now particularly enthusiastic about their tasks, exuding a sense of hopefulness for their future.
Although they were currently feeling a bit lost about the task Luo Wusheng had assigned them, they didn’t have too many questions and chose to work diligently.
Now, only Bai Xiaoyao and Luo Wusheng remained on the third floor.
Looking at the demoness who still refused to even look at him, Luo Wusheng felt a bit uneasy.
“Ahem, Junior Sister Xiaoyao, I was a bit impulsive earlier…”
Bai Xiaoyao didn’t respond.
“Ahem, my Junior Sister Xiao Yao is so beautiful, and she’s become even more alluring in just half a month. How could I not think of you?” Luo Wusheng said.
Bai Xiaoyao trembled slightly, but still refused to look at him.
Luo Wusheng scratched his head, realizing that he really didn’t know how to coax girls.
So he decided to be more direct.
“Ahem, Junior Sister Xiao Yao, shall I give you something else as a gift?”
Bai Xiaoyao turned her head.
In fact, she had wanted to turn her head when Luo Wusheng said the second sentence. It’s just that her senior brother’s mouth was really clumsy, and she was afraid that she would laugh out loud when she saw her senior brother’s serious face.
But when he mentioned giving her another gift, she became curious again.
“Another gift from my senior brother?” Bai Xiaoyao’s face was filled with a playful smile, and there was no sign of stubbornness.
The demoness was the demoness, capable of controlling her emotions at will, turning her face faster than flipping through a book.
Feeling the change in her attitude, Luo Wusheng breathed a sigh of relief.
“What my senior sister says naturally counts… but we still need some time to prepare,” Luo Wusheng said, probing a little, “You’re not still angry with me, are you?”
“What are you talking about, senior brother? How could I be angry with you?” the demoness’s smiling face showed no sign of being upset.
Luo Wusheng was secretly amazed, but he kept a straight face and asked, “So can you tell me why you came here now? You said it was just a joke when you left for the sea that day.”
“Oh, that’s because after senior brother left that day, this little demon couldn’t stop thinking about him day and night. Eventually, I gathered up the courage to come to the royal city to be with senior brother,” the delicate-faced demoness showed a hint of unfulfilled desire and resentment while saying such word.
(What a drama queen this demoness is.)
Luo Wusheng thought to himself, but he shook his head and smiled.
“You haven’t changed a bit, always joking around with your senior brother even after so many days apart,” said Luo Wusheng. “But nevermind, let me guess… You came here because the city is going to hold the competition for the Human and Immortal Ranking in just over a month, and you’re here to prepare early and help your senior brother?”
This was his guess based on the original storyline.
The competition for the Human and Immortal Ranking was a large event held in the Immortal Nation, where all the major sects and schools from around the Immortal Nation participated. It was mainly a gathering for young geniuses under the age of thirty with Foundation Establishment cultivation to compete and determine their ranking, and those who ranked high would be rewarded with several magical treasures and materials.
Representing the Demon Sect was the Holy Maiden Bai Xiaoyao, who had already achieved a perfect Foundation Establishment cultivation.
Of course, such a large-scale plot could not have happened without the intervention of the original main character, and this was the first time Miss Lu Yulian had made an appearance in the Immortal Nation.
Luo Wusheng felt that he had already guessed the truth.
“Wow, senior brother Wusheng is so smart! You’ve guessed it right!” exclaimed Bai Xiaoyao. “My senior brother is really too clever!”
He was as smart as a block of wood!
How dare he say that his character hadn’t changed? His head is still as dense as ever!
“Could senior brother ever be wrong?” Asked Luo Wusheng, he had a feeling that Bai Xiaoyao was being sarcastic in her praise.
“No, no, no, senior brother’s guess is certainly correct. And I’ve even prepared several gifts for my senior brother,” said Bai Xiaoyao with a coy smile, patting the storage bag at her waist.
Gifts from the demoness?
It seemed like his goodwill had worked, and this girl knew how to reciprocate it.
Luo Wusheng quickly forgot Bai Xiaoyao’s strange tone earlier and felt very happy. He looked at her curiously, wondering what kind of gifts she had prepared.
Dong dong dong.
Large wooden crates fell to the ground, making a muffled sound.
The demoness pointed her finger and the crates were opened one by one, revealing a plethora of materials for crafting.
“Since Senior Brother came here, I have been trying to collect information about the Demon Artifact Pavilion and have obtained quite a bit of news,” said Bai Xiaoyao with a smile. “For example, the crafting materials here have already been completely depleted, and there is no longer a single craftsman in the pavilion…”
“So I took the liberty of helping myself and brought over the materials that the Demon Sect was supposed to supply to the pavilion next year… but the most important thing is that there is a kind-hearted elder who contributed at least eighty percent of what is here.”
“A kind-hearted elder?” Luo Wusheng was puzzled.
“Why don’t you open the last box and take a look?” suggested Bai Xiaoyao.
Upon hearing her words, Luo Wusheng realized that there was one box that had not been opened.
He flicked his finger and a burst of spiritual energy shot out, opening the final crate.
Luo Wusheng raised an eyebrow.
Inside the last crate was a middle-aged man with a scruffy beard, showing signs of premature aging, dressed in the garb of a Demon Sect disciple, and unconscious.
“His name is Lu Bin,” Bai Xiaoyao said nonchalantly.
Luo Wusheng understood everything.
It seemed that this demoness was indeed different from him, as she had investigated everything before coming to the Demon Artifact Pavilion.
If the Demon Artifact Pavilion lacked materials for refining an artifact, she would bring the materials herself; if the staff of the Demon Artifact Pavilion were betrayed by a refining master named Lu Bin, she would bring the culprit to the Demon Artifact Pavilion for punishment, and even make the greedy elder behind him pay a heavy price.
This was the means of a demoness.
But the surprises brought to her by Bai Xiaoyao were not yet over.
“In addition, there are five refining masters from my Little Demon Domain who will also arrive in the royal city tomorrow. Although their level is not as high as Senior Brother’s, they can still help Senior Brother.”
After Bai Xiaoyao finished speaking, Luo Wusheng’s gaze towards this junior sister had completely changed.
“Junior Sister, I really love you!”
Unable to restrain the excitement in his heart, Luo Wusheng instinctively embraced the girl who had brought him so many surprises.
