这穿越方式绝逼不对！Chapter zero six three – Taught to the wrong path
“Please wait a minute!”
The young man in white quickly called out to stop them when he saw they were about to leave. After being freed from that terrifying pressure, the young man has yet to figure out what is actually happening when he got stunned by the development and climax happened between Yin Suye, Shui Ruoshan and Huo Ruyan. And now, show is over but he still hasn’t figure out what happened between the three of them. However, this doesn’t prevent him from stopping the people first. After all, a big mess in the inn still need someone to be responsible.
Yin Suye’s eyes slightly squinted, it was obvious that his patience is running out. If not for him still carrying Shui Ruoshan in his arms, he probably has already struck out.
“Not stepping aside!”
The emotion in the young man in white doesn’t look good, and he still insisted to block in the middle of the path.
Yin Suye used one hand to continue carrying Shui Ruoshan, while his other free hand is ready to go. As long as the other party starts moving, he will immediately pull out his sword from his space ring and put on an offensive stance.
Upon seeing that Yin Suye has the intention to take action, Shui Ruoshan reached out to hold Yin Suye back without thinking. He gently shook his head to tell Yin Suye not to do it. Yin Suye’s habit in attacking at the drop of a hat is very bad. It’s very easy to offend other people and leave himself with hidden dangers and new enemies.
Sensing Shui Ruoshan’s disapproval, Yin Suye hesitated for a moment before slowly put his hand back to its original place. That expressionless face was as if nothing has happened at all.
After he persuaded Yin Suye, Shui Ruoshan then shifted his gaze towards the young man in white.1
“Who are you ah?”
Shui Ruoshan doesn’t have much info of this young man in his draft outline. This young man in white is just a little cannon fodder in the protagonist’s way to level up; a fuse to lead the story to the next plot. So, even he as the author also doesn’t know much about this young man. No author would write a detail description for cannon fodders with a very short ‘airtime’ after all.
“My name is Bai Yu. The ‘Bai’ from the color white, and the ‘Yu’ from the word feather.”
The young man in white, no, should call Bai Yu now. Bai Yu fixed his own expression, looking very serious with his self-introduction.
Just stating a name only, not need to be so detailed ah!
Instantly, the word ‘chatterbox’ flashed through Shui Ruoshan’s mind.
“I have introduced myself, why haven’t you guys introduce yourself as well ah?” He asked in dissatisfaction after waiting for a moment and the other party didn’t say anything.
Facing this person who talks all by himself, Shui Ruoshan could only use the word ‘God-tier Speechlessness’ to describe his current mood. How big is this ‘nerve’ of Bai Yu? To actually ignore the ‘low pressure’2 from Yin Suye, running his mouth away without any sense of crisis! The thickness of this ‘nerve’ must have be thickened to a certain (godly) level!
“Do you have any reason to stop us?”
In order to prevent Bai Yu from continuing his nonsense, Shui Ruoshan felt that it would be better to go directly to the main point.
“Oh yeah, I stopped you not to make friends but for serious matters!”
Bai Yu patted his head as if he has just got enlightened. He seemed to be upset by the fact that he keep going out of the main point.
Shui Ruoshan felt that talking to Bai Yu was a very wrong move. It was like ‘çhicken talking to duck’, are you alright, dear? At the same time, he deeply doubted if such a silly character was really created by him.
Bai Yu seemed to also notice that his behavior just now was a bit unreliable. So he fixed his expression, and put on an act in coughing a few times; wanted to use these action to save his image.
“Just tell us why did you stopped us! Other than that, PLEASE.SAY.THE.MAIN.POINT!”
If he don’t remind Bai Yu, Shui Ruoshan think Bai Yu probably could stand there and perform ‘facial expression changing stunt’ for a long time.
“-cough- actually what I wanted to say is your partner released his pressure for no reason just now, not only it injured the people present, it almost collapsed the inn. So, you guys cannot leave just like that!”
Bai Yu pointed at Yin Suye, and started listing down the number of crimes done by the other party.
“The one who injured the people was that woman, not us! You stopped the wrong person!”
Shui Ruoshan pointed at Huo Ruyan, ‘directly throwing the dirty water’ on Huo Ruyan.
These matters were originally caused by Huo Ruyan, so it’s alright to let her take the responsibility. Want him to pay (take the responsibility) on behalf of Huo Ruyan? Don’t say the door, there won’t be windows or even door seams alright3!
“The remaining innocent people who were implicated, how about them?”
At crucial moments, Bai Yu still could be counted on for a bit. Excluding those who were injured by Huo Ruyan, the rest of the people were all injured by Yin Suye’s pressure.
“Them ah? That is even lesser of our problem!”
Shui Ruoshan glanced around the inn, and found out that he couldn’t find even a single unharmed person. Instantly, he had a deeper understanding towards the extent of Yin Suye’s ferocity.
“Yin Suye is clearly affected by the battle between you and Huo Ruyan, so he couldn’t help but took action for self-preservation purpose ba!”
When Shui Ruoshan lies, he really don’t blink at all. That solemn statement let people feel that he is speaking the truth. Let’s not talk about the time when Huo Ruyan and Bai Yu confronted each other first, they didn’t even do anything at first. Even after they started attacking, their movements were quite small. The people at the ground floor were not affected, so how could he and Yin Suye who were at the second floor get affected? Even if the battling movement gets bigger, with Yin Suye’s strength, there won’t be any chance of him getting affected by other people’s battle!
“Speaking of this, the fact that everyone present got injured, the responsibility still lies on you and Huo Ruyan.”
Shui Ruoshan explained his conclusion without any regards.
“If both of you didn’t fight, then Yin Suye won’t have to take action. Then none of the people here will get injured!”
Such a simple case of cause and effect, right?
“Is it like this?”
Bai Yu has completely turned dizzy by Shui Ruoshan’s words. Whenever he thought of the person who caused this situation might be him, he will feel uneasy.
“Of course it’s like that!”
This skill in fooling other people, Shui Ruoshan felt that he has full score of this; he could just open his mouth and start right away. No need to worry too much in the mind, then speaking it out will definitely come in sets.
“It seems like this is really the truth!”
Very obvious, Bai Yu also felt that if he didn’t start arguing with other people, then the incident happened behind probably will not happen.
“You finally understood, en, very good!”
Shui Ruoshan was very pleased and nodded. He is very sure that this honest child Bai Yu has completely fooled by him. But in order to prevent unnecessary trouble, he felt that it is still necessary to deepen the influence on Bai Yu.
“If you want to seek justice for all these people here, then just look for yourself and Huo Ruyan. This matter was caused by both of you after all.”
Through that short period of contact, Shui Ruoshan is very certain that Bai Yu is actually a silly young man with excessive sense of justice ah! Otherwise, he won’t come forward and argue with Huo Ruyan about the logics after she injured those people. Right now, it’s also because Yin Suye injured those people that he came up to stop them from leaving. When this kind of people become stubborn, they will become the typical representative of the saying ‘won’t look back as long as one doesn’t hit the south wall’ ah![Banana : It means someone being stubborn and won’t give in until he/she hits the dead end. ‘Stubborn like a mule’]
So, in order to avoid the fate of being tangled together, Shui Ruoshan chose to shift the attention and thoroughly removed themselves from this matter.
“All the things happened were actually caused by me?!”
Bai Yu could be clearly seen shocked speechless by this fact, his entire body slowly collapsing.
“Actually, the main reason is not with you but with that woman, Huo Ruyan!”
Seeing Bai Yu’s expression from suffering a heavy blow, Shui Ruoshan suddenly couldn’t bear to continue. Actually, he doesn’t hate this kind of Bai Yu so he doesn’t mind giving a hand to Bai Yu and causing some troubles for Huo Ruyan along the way. After all, Bai Yu in the plot is the one to cause trouble for Huo Ruyan, just that the flow was accidentally interrupted by him and Yin Suye. Right now he just only letting the plot return to its original trajectory only!
Totally no psychological pressure at all ah!
“What do you mean?”
The moment he heard that the matter is not like what he thought of, Bai Yu instantly recovered his spirit; staring intently at Shui Ruoshan.
“Because if not for Huo Ruyan suddenly took action and injured the people, you won’t come forward to seek justice for the injured people!”
Shui Ruoshan doesn’t want to explain much. Everything was exactly the same with the previous cause and effect he mentioned earlier, so there’s nothing much to talk about.
Bai Yu’s eyes became bright. He bowed at Shui Ruoshan, sincerely gave his thanks. He seemed to be grateful to be able to learn such profound philosophical truth.
“Don’t mention it!”
Shui Ruoshan suddenly felt he couldn’t look directly at Bai Yu. Simple too silly that one couldn’t bear to look directly at him ah! Actually, was it the level of these people from parallel world is too low or simply his level is too high ah?! This Bai Yu is too naive and easily cheated! He actually got deceived with his(SRS) few words! Such a silly person will definitely is a typical example of ‘being cheated and still help people count money’4. At the same time, a deep sense of guilt inevitably developed in his heart. He seemed to have taught a good young man to a wrong path?!
“Actually, you can follow this brother5 to roam (the world), guarantee good food and spicy drinks6!” As he said that, Shui Ruoshan flipped his hair. If not for the situation doesn’t match, he really wanted to add one more sentence – ‘This brother is just a myth, don’t worship this brother!’7
That way it would feel awesomely cool!
Shui Ruoshan didn’t stop to look at himself, his little Zhengtai(shota) figure and his little bun appearance; yet he make a serious and solemn expression. Does he know how ‘meng’ he looked right now and how much he is inviting other people to smooch him?!
Killing the crowd with ‘meng’ ah, my dear!
Could you please be a bit more self-conscious, my dear?!
The little Zhengtai who didn’t notice anything still stood there with much proudness, completely oblivious towards Yin Suye standing behind whose gaze turned deeper and more dangerous…
He(YSY) knew he will soon need to use his supreme charm to conquer a little brother!
Little kid don’t be too proud/pleased!
“If you can teach me more philosophies, I will follow you to roam!”
Bai Yu didn’t hear the joke-like words of Shui Ruoshan at all, he gave his words with a rather serious committed look.
“Good! Remember to call me ‘Laoda'(Boss)!”
Shui Ruoshan thought for a moment and felt that he doesn’t dislike this kind of Bai Yu so he decided to take this especially easy-to-deceive younger brother. One need to know, from the day he transmigrated until now, Bai Yu was the first person who didn’t look down at him because of his child-like appearance. Instead, he(BY) talked and treated him(SRS) with equal footing; even trusted his words. This has greatly satisfied Shui Ruoshan’s vanity. Getting a younger brother who listens to his words, it seemed to be a very good thing.
Bai Yu readily accepted the instruction and called Shui Ruoshan ‘Boss’ without even stopping to think. That natural action was as if it’s not a strange thing at all to recognize a child as the Boss.
After he finally cheated the person to follow under his wings, Shui Ruoshan then felt that this ‘younger brother collecting process’ is too simple, too easy, too smooth. This caused him to feel insecure/unstable! Especially when he looked at Bai Yu’s foolish face, he felt like he shouldn’t be so smooth in seeking death! At the very least, he should observe Bai Yu for some time before deciding whether to accept him as his younger brother or not! He keep having a feeling that with Bai Yu as his younger brother, his future days will be very hard to live!
In other words, he is repenting now, is it too late to do so?
