Chapter 701 Bringing Disgrace Upon Your Own Head
In fact, almost all attendees at the banquet were looking forward to the arrival of the Lady of the Clouds.
Because she had been enjoying a great reputation recently.
In the past, the Goddesses of Martial Arts and beauties from various major star regions, tribes, and races in the Ziwei Star Zone were ranked on the List of Bright Pearls. Those included in the list were all goddess-like figures with both talents and good looks. Countless Heavenly Legends would take a fancy to any of them and chase her like crazy.
However, since the Lady of the Clouds made her debut with a dance, she had completely surpassed all the goddesses on the List of Bright Pearls.
The mysterious Lady of the Clouds had become the most beautiful woman in the Ziwei Star Zone now.
It was said that Ling Tianshuang, the “Flying Frost Divine Sword”, who ranked first on the List of Bright Pearls, once went to see the Lady of the Clouds in person because she was unconvinced about the latter’s status. After the two of them met, they talked in private for a long time. Finally, when Ling Tianshuang left, she openly admitted that she was inferior to the Lady of the Clouds.
The reputation of the Lady of the Clouds soared because of this event.
Moreover, even such a peerless Heavenly Legend like the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan had fallen for the Lady of the Clouds, which added to the mystery of her image and charm.
A few moments later.
Several maids of the Heavenly Deity Clan walked slowly into the main shrine hall with a woman in a white dress.
Suddenly, all eyes fell upon this woman.
She was wearing a casual, loose white dress, which could not hide her perfect curves, and a large organza hat that completely covered her face. For some unknown reason, however, when all the people at the banquet saw the shape and contour of her body, they couldn’t help exclaiming, “She really deserves the title of the most beautiful woman in the entire Ziwei Star Zone.”
Nobody could tell where the beauty of this woman wearing a white dress and an organza hat lay, but she simply gave the impression that she should be the most beautiful woman in the Ziwei Star Zone and there was no doubt about that.
When many practitioners saw a senior master who had been famous for a long time, they could tell from the master’s aura and vibe that his cultivation level was unfathomable and he was a powerful one that they could never defeat.
Li Mu’s heart began to pound wildly.
“She looks so familiar to me.
“She just looks so familiar to me.”
Li Mu could immediately recognize the Lady of the Clouds just by taking a look at her figure. She was definitely Hua Xiangrong.
“Wait for me to come back. I will marry you when we see each other again.”
That was what Li Mu said to her when he left the Heavenly Land.
Now, he saw her again.
At first, Li Mu thought that he did not have very strong feelings for her.
However, he suddenly had an impulse to take this woman into his arms right now.
Her white dress accentuated the coldness that was like the atmosphere in the Moon Palace, which made people feel the lonesomeness in her bones.
At that moment, Li Mu lost control of himself again.
He unknowingly walked toward her step by step.
“Huh? Stop!” Huangfu Chengdao, the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan, blocked Li Mu’s way, his face flaming with killing intent. He sneered and said, “Get lost!”
Shocked, Li Mu suddenly came to his senses.
Li Mu glanced at the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan. When their eyes met, he saw the latter’s eyes flaming with a kind of anger that a male animal had when it wanted to protect its mate. Obviously, Huangfu Chengdao had regarded the Lady of the Clouds as his exclusive property and would not allow anyone to get close to her.
Li Mu smiled and ignored him.
“It was not the right time to make a move.
“There’s no need to get angry with this kind of person who is doomed to fail.”
Li Mu went around to the other side and stopped at a relatively eye-catching position on the edge of the dance floor. He picked up a glass of wine and then watched Hua Xiangrong quietly.
Huangfu Chengdao, the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan, was almost unable to contain his anger.
Had it not been for today’s special occasion, he would probably have taken action to kill Li Mu.
In the eyes of other attendees, this scene naturally verified the label of strong lust for women on Li Yidao the “God of Broadswords”.
Many practitioners were stunned by the beauty of the Lady of the Clouds when they saw her. They had an impulse to die for this woman, but they managed to control themselves well. Only Li Yidao, who had treated Daji the little princess rudely, almost fought with Huangfu Chengdao, who ranked first on the List of Heavenly Legends on the spot because of the Lady of the Clouds…
“That’s enough to show how weak-minded Li Yidao is in the face of beautiful women.”
Duan Shenping the “Seven Luminaries Divine Bell”, Ye Tianxie the “Purple Flame Divine Spear”, and the others sneered at Li Mu.
Many practitioners looked at Li Mu with their eyes flaming with contempt.
Lust for women was a fatal flaw of practitioners.
About this, Li Mu’s mind did not waver at all.
He leisurely savored the wine as he thought about how to reconcile with Hua Xiangrong and little Daji without revealing his identity.
At this time, the sound of pleasant music rang out.
The Lady of the Clouds had begun to dance gracefully, whirling around the dance floor.
She was wearing a white veil that covered her face and a loose white dress that did not show her slender figure. However, she danced in an extremely beautiful and graceful manner like a heavenly fairy dancing under the moonlight to rid herself of loneliness in the Moon Palace. Her every move seemed to be holy and perfect, forbidding any profanity and making people want to cherish and take good care of her.
None of the practitioners around the dance floor made a sound.
All the people were watching the fairy whirling around the dance floor, intoxicated.
Even Bai Yuanshou, a martial arts master and a big shot in the Star River, nodded frequently as he watched with a look of admiration on his face.
Li Mu also secretly admired her.
What Hua Xiangrong had been practicing was the simplified version of Xiantian Skill 2.0 that she completed and amended by herself. Although its effect was not as mysterious as that of the complete version, it gave full play to the talents of her Congenital Taoist Figure. What surprised Li Mu even more was that her cultivation level had reached the General Realm.
She had made progress faster than Li Mu.
“Is it because that her Taoist Figure is especially compatible with Xiantian Skill?
“Or is it because of her state of mind?
“Or did she have a new opportunity after entering the Star River?”
Anyway, Li Mu felt genuinely happy for Hua Xiangrong.
While he was in a trance, the music ended.
Hua Xiangrong’s dance was over.
Because of her Congenital Taoist Figure, she had an indescribable congenital charm. Even if she did not do anything, she would still be the center of attention, as if she had a light-emitting body.
Huangfu Chengdao, the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan, was the first to walk up to her and offer her a cloak. His words and facial expressions all showed his deep concern.
The Lady of the Clouds took the cloak politely and put it on herself. She declined Huangfu Chengdao’s good-natured offer to put it on for her.
Her refusal made Huangfu Chengdao feel a bit embarrassed, he still displayed his warm-heartedness.
When others saw that happened, a thought popped into their heads, “People say that the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan and the Lady of the Clouds have pledged to get married and spend the rest of their lives together, and they love and care for each other very much. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case. The Lady of the Clouds seems to be keeping a certain distance from the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan. These small details show that they are definitely not a loving couple.”
Li Mu was amused when he saw this scene.
Since he knew that the Lady of the Clouds was Hua Xiangrong, he had never taken the rumors to heart no matter how many times he heard people say that the Lady of the Clouds and the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan traveled together and that they were a happy couple in love.
Because he was absolutely sure that Hua Xiangrong would never fall in love with another man.
Even if that man was an illustrious, peerless Heavenly Legend like the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan.
The crowd in the main shrine hall burst into wild applause.
Various sounds of cheers rang out.
Only then did many practitioners and Heavenly Legends shocked and fascinated by the dance come to their senses.
Bai Yuanshou walked over to the Lady of the Clouds and proposed a toast to her in person.
This pontiff of the Heavenly Fox Clan behaved very gracefully. He was not pedantic at all, and his image was completely different from the stereotypical image of those dominators with great power who, as many people imagined, were condescending to ordinary people and never changed their faces to show emotions. He was more like an easygoing and amiable young uncle. It was difficult to associate him with the word “pontiff”.
After seeing Bai Yuanshou taking the lead, other people also went over to greet the Lady of the Clouds.
The face of Huangfu Chengdao, the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan, looked gloomy. There were several times that he wanted to stop them, but he endured it.
Although he had a high social status, he could not go too far on such an occasion.
At this time, Li Mu slowly walked over to Hua Xiangrong with a glass of wine in his hand, ignoring the murderous look in the eyes of the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan, and said, “That dance is spectacular, and it is a rare thing to watch in this world. You really deserve to be the most beautiful goddess of the Ziwei Star Zone.”
The look on the face of the Lady of the Clouds under the white veil did not change. She just nodded slightly out of politeness.
Her reaction was within everyone’s expectations.
However, Li Mu did not leave after saying that, but instead he continued. “The Lady of the Clouds, may I ask where you are from?”
In other people’s eyes, that was a shameful way to find topics and a very lame way to strike up a conversation.
As expected, the Lady of the Clouds did not respond at all.
Huangfu Chengdao walked up to them and stared at Li Mu with his sharp eyes.
Li Mu ignored Huangfu Chengdao like he hadn’t seen the latter at all. He said to the Lady of the Clouds, “I once met an old friend. He said that he was a friend of yours. I don’t know if you’re interested in knowing his name.”
The Lady of the Clouds frowned slightly and said, “No.”
“Wow, I haven’t seen her for a few years. She has become much colder towards me.”
Li Mu still wanted to say something, but the Lady of the Clouds bluntly said, “I don’t want to know anything. Young hero, please leave.”
Li Mu was dumbfounded.
The people around him, especially Duan Shenping, Ye Tianxie, and other Heavenly Legends, all burst out laughing.
“What is a shame?
“What Li Yidao did is a shame.
“Li Yidao has really made a fool of himself this time.
“Dealing with a woman is not as easy as drawing your broadsword and defeating your opponent on the Immortal-slaying Platform.
“Your title of the ‘God of Broadswords’ is really meaningless in front of the Lady of the Clouds.”
Huangfu Chengdao, the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan, also laughed.
“Li Yidao, you’re bringing disgrace upon your own head.”
