Ultimate Scheming System Chapter 110
"Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 40 act tough points!"
"Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 60 act tough points!"
"Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 80 act tough points!"
Hearing the system ring out repeatedly within his head, Xu Que squinted his eyes and laughed out loud.
This way of acting tough was rather profitable! At least, he didn’t waste his talents of rescuing others and could always lend a helping hand to those in need! Afterall, a good person would always have good karma. Since he had taken the path of acting tough as his noble profession, the least he could do was to excel in it. Saving people and acting tough went hand in hand. The most profound aspect about acting tough was to assimilate it, bit by bit, into everyday life and routine!
Just as Xu Que was revelling in happiness, the Empress had started to regain her composure again. Her gaze never left Xu Que, causing him to feel some discomfort.
Afterall, he was being looked at by a beautiful looking, stark naked lady and it was normal to feel somewhat shy.
"Little brother, let me ask, are you here to participate in the test conducted by Sky Incense Valley to become a disciple?"
Both pairs of eyes locked onto each other. At last, the Empress broke the silence. Her voice was extremely warm and friendly, bearing a tinge of understanding. Her gaze was extraordinary as though she could see through any deception on this world.
Right now, the only thing her eyes were looking at was the man who had superb innate talents. This same person had just fed her ‘faeces’ earlier on.
However, when Xu Que heard this, he was extremely unhappy. His eyebrows knitted into a frown and he asked, "Missy, you haven't even seen my ‘brother’, how can you know that it's little?"
"Eh? What do you mean by this?"
The Empress’s paused, unable to fathom whatever Xu Que had meant. "Could it be, that you have other brothers at home? Could they be as talented as you? If so, that's great! All of you can join Sky Incense Valley!"
The Empress had always been a renowned child prodigy. However, she relied heavily on the counsel and guidance of the leaders of Sky Incense Valley in order to get to where she was today.
The amount of strength and talents displayed by Xu Que would've put her talents when she was younger to shame. Earlier on, it was extremely clear that that thing he placed into her mouth looked and smelt like faeces. How could it have increased her soul strength then?"
If this young man had other equally gifted brothers and they were all to join Sky Incense Valley, that would make the Sect extremely strong!
"Eh? So what you’re trying to say, is that you wish to meet my little brother?" Xu Que broke out into hysteric laughter. In all honesty, he didn’t intend to be this dirty minded but couldn’t help it under such circumstances!
"That’s right! If it’s convenient, please introduce us..." The Empress replied seriously.
Seeing such a serious expression on the Empress face, it was clear that she wasn’t kidding. Xu Que was completely stumped and didn’t know how to react to that answer. Missy, why don’t you understand slangs and social lingo? Why can’t you catch my drift?
"What? Will it be inconvenient? Is your little brother staying too far away from Sky Incense Village?" The Empress looked at Xu Que’s expressions of difficulty and asked curiously.
"No no no… He’s not far away at all. Instead, he’s extremely close." As he spoke, Xu Que looked down at his own pants.
"Oh? Do you mean to say, he came for the same test as you?" The Empress asked, astonished.
"That’s right. He did come! It’s only… It’s not convenient for him to see you!" Xu Que replied helplessly.
This Empress was clearly a very thorough person and always felt the need to get to the bottom of the matter. She then persisted in asking, "Why would it be inconvenient? Since he’s in the vicinity…"
"Aiya! The logic behind the reason is extremely deep. Even if I were to tell you, you might not understand. The bottomline is, not letting you meet him would be best for you."
Xu Que shook his head as he tried to change the topic, "Little miss, if I didn’t guess wrongly, you are a disciple of Sky Incense Valley?"
"Did you just call me little miss?" The Empress paused in shock before bursting out in laughter. "Do you know how many times older I am than you?"
"What’s the use of being older or younger than someone?" Xu Que shrugged his shoulders before pointing towards the fair chest before speaking out boldly, "What’s most important is, that is small. Although I think you’re at least a D-cup right? But I’ve seen E and even F cups!"
The Empress was bewildered as she looked down. The second she looked down, her face fell.
She then finally recalled that she had been in secluded meditation on the eighth level all these while. Everytime she came up here, it was natural for her to completely disrobe and meditate. However, the elders who had come up here were all elderly old women which she wasn’t ashamed to be naked in front of.
Who would ever imagine that a young man like Xu Que would ever end up here. When their interaction first began, the Empress didn’t think much of it. However with Xu Que’s reminder, she then realized they were of opposite genders and was thus extremely inappropriate! She was the highly esteemed Empress of the Water Nation. And yet she had been seen naked by a random, unknown man. This… This was a scandal!
"Sou!" A wave of freezing energy wafted out from her body as it wrapped around her body, sticking to her skin before transforming into a layer of opaque ice, covering her skin.
What was most extraordinary was that this layer of ice had embroidery all over it and yet it didn’t look strange. Instead, it made her look even more ravishing and befitting of an Empress of a nation.
She looked upset and yet the Empress’ feeling were in a whirl right now. She glared at Xu Que, who looked right back into her eyes. She then realized that she was looking at this handsome looking young man and an indescribable feeling was in her heart. With her personality, if anyone else had seen her in a compromising position previously, she would have turned him into ashes without a second thought and erase all trace of his existence from this world.
Whenever when she looked at Xu Que’s crystal clear pupils, she was reminded of how she looked at him just as he fed her the delicious tasting smelly tofu. Her once cold heart of ice had been melted to water and had started dripping and softening, drop by drop.
"Little miss, aiyo! That’s a pretty cool trick, using ice as a set of robes. How much money can you save up without having to spend on clothings! But… Aren’t you cold?" Xu Que asked in awe.
The Empress ignored him and looked somewhat angry, but not quite. She looked at Xu Que strangely and was extremely conflicted. She had no idea what to do with Xu Que at this point.
And Xu Que continued looking at her, seemingly happy.
Indeed, there existed a special breed of women who were still pretty in their anger. Or rather, still exuded a particular charm in spite of their anger.
Xu Que could somewhat feel a sort of majestic aura wafting out from her. Although this aura wasn’t threatening, it could make someone feel like she was extremely dignified and graceful.
