Urban Martial Arts System - Chapter 39
Chapter 39: Dumbstruck Li Xiaoyi
Yanping City was only a city by name. It was more important than any province. Because Yanping City was the capital of the capital, it was the center of politics and economy of the country. Here, all kinds of giants were everywhere. Those wealthy people who could cover the sky with one hand must have their tails caught in Yanping.
However, in this place where there were so many powerful people, there was an off-road vehicle that ran rampant. Wherever it passed, all vehicles gave way.
No one dared to provoke it.
This car had a special license plate, and people with insufficient levels would not dare to provoke them. Even if they had enough level, everybody could recognize Zhou family’s second master.
“Hahaha, eldest brother, Aping made us proud. There has been a word from above. When your term ends, you will be transferred back to the capital and join the National Standing Committee.” The second uncle was full of joy.
“Guosheng, this is just a rumor. Nothing can be done until it is officially announced.” Zhou Guorong clearly raised the corners of his mouth, but still maintained the demeanor of being a big brother.
“Big brother, you are still so deceptive. You always incite us to go to Da Hutong, but it’s always only me and the third brother in the end.” Zhou Guosheng exposed Zhou Guorong’s secret. “Aping, you won’t be able to learn from your dad in the future. Return to Yanping, and when you are free, ask your third uncle to take you to Da Hutong.”
“Cough, cough. What did you say? Ping’er is still just a child.” Zhou Guorong couldn’t remain silent and coughed vigorously.
“What kid? Brother, don’t think I don’t know. When you were in high school…”
“Guosheng!” Zhou Guorong slapped his head. Zhou Guosheng hummed twice, but did not continue.
“Hehe, eldest brother, second brother is afraid of you, but not me. Ping, don’t worry. When your third uncle takes you to play, you will understand what’s the best thing in the world.” Since Zhou Guoan lost to Zhou Ping, he was acting like an equal. Zhou Ping felt that getting along with Zhou Guoan was more like getting along with a friend.
“Hey, Aping has suffered a lot over the years. Big Brother is the one to blame. He just left Yanping and didn’t wait. He wanted to go to places where the birds don’t shit.” Zhou Guosheng sighed, and Zhou Guorong didn’t say anything. Only Li Xiaoyi, who had no sense of existence, rolled her eyes when she heard this.
Young Master Zhou suffered? What a joke! Not mentioning his martial arts, he is rick and powerful. As Soon as he entered the school, he was overbearing and domineering. Anybody who wanted to teach him a lesson came back with a black eye the next day. He even admitted that he was very arrogant. Even the teachers were respectful of him.
“If this is considered hardship, I would rather suffer more.” Li Xiaoyi curled her lips.
After all, Li Xiaoyi’s background was too low, and her judgments were obviously different from those of the Zhou family. For the Zhou family, it would have been aggrieved to go to other places. Were there people who dared not to see Young Master Zhou pleasing to the eye? In Yanping, anyone who dared to be disrespectful to the Zhou family was immediately taught a severe lesson.
The off-road vehicle went straight. The red light turned green wherever it goes. We must know that this was Yanping, where the powerful are gathered, and the power of the Zhou family was evident from this.
The Zhou family brothers hadn’t seen each other for several years, so they could not finish talking. Time flew by, and the off-road vehicle finally stopped in front of a quaint courtyard.
This was the Zhou Family Courtyard. Except for people standing guard on both sides, it did not seem to be unique.
Li Xiaoyi looked at the Zhou family compound. Its simple appearance was completely different from the magnificence she imagined.
The three brothers took the lead and walked in. Zhou Ping pulled Li Xiaoyi in a daze and quickly followed.
“Don’t make a fool of yourself. Everything here looks ordinary, but it’s actually amazing.” Zhou Ping saw the doubt in Li Xiaoyi’s heart and whispered. “This gate alone is made of bloodwood, and the entire Zhou family compound is an imitated southern garden. You will know when you go in.”
Li Xiaoyi was taken aback.
The real bloodwood was an incredible treasure. This was also an extremely rare wood newly discovered after the prosperity of martial arts. Although the bloodwood was wood, it was full of power. In ancient times, it was able to drive away evil spirits and avoid ghosts. Moreover, the bloodwood had a very good warming effect on qi and blood. Long-term exposure could greatly increase one’s cultivation.
If you could carve a wooden sign with bloodwood and carry it with you, it was already unbelievable. If there could be a wooden pillow made of bloodwood, it was found in a large family and can also be used as a heirloom. As for the door made of bloodwood? Li Xiaoyi couldn’t even think about it.
How much was it? It couldn’t be bought with a lot of money. It was a legendary existence to ordinary people. Basically, large families kept them at home as treasures. Even if a little piece of bloodwood was found, it could only be exchanged with other treasures. Money? Nobody would sell it even with all their riches.
Pushing open the bloodwooden door, Li Xiaoyi felt a warm feeling coming out of her body. The blood all over her body seemed to be activated.
“This is the bloodwood? It has a strong effect. If you can practice here at the gate, the technique will definitely improve quickly.”
Li Xiaoyi had an idea of staying beside the bloodwooden door and not leaving. Unfortunately, she could only move forward passively.
“It’s no wonder they said that Young Master Zhou went to other places to endure hardship. Compared with this place, it is really a hardship.”
It was just a door, and Li Xiaoyi had a deep understanding of what was called a top giant. Reluctantly looking away from the bloodwooden door, Li Xiaoyi immediately understood what a frog at the bottom of the well was.
“Tong Shenmu, Invincible Flower…”
Li Xiaoyi looked at the precious tree species. Just one of these trees was comparable to the entire asset of her family. But here, these things were only used as ornaments.
“Are you okay?”
Walking on the corridor, Li Xiaoyi felt clear headed. The mind that was attracted by all kinds of precious trees quickly came to life.
“The floors laid here are made of special materials. Walking on the floor can make people clear-headed, and long-term exposure can avoid generation of demons,” Zhou Ping explained to Li Xiaoyi in a low voice.
Li Xiaoyi was shocked and numb. The Zhou family courtyard, which was originally thought to be primitive, became mysterious and unpredictable in her eyes. Being dragged by Zhou Ping in a haunting manner, Li Xiaoyi didn’t even notice the beautiful scenery.
Zhou Ping secretly sighed in his heart. That was a difference in level. The Zhou family courtyard was not most famous for these rare treasures, but the scenery that Li Xiaoyi overlooked.
Finally, the group came to the front of the main house.
