Fey Evolution Merchant - Chapter 1385 - I Already Have Someone I Like
However, the Creation Masters from the Divine Wood Federation clearly would not be able to do the same because of their lack of knowledge, and they would not be shocked by any fey placed before them.
As the cool breeze blew past Lin Yuan, he looked down at the forest below him and thought, In this federation where power reigns supreme, experts are almost no different from gods, and the weak are basically as pathetic as ants.
Every person needs to live by the original rule of the jungle, and an outsider like me is no exception. In this place, people speak with their fists, and anyone who tries to rationalize with words will only be treated as a joke.
Liu Jie knew that Lin Yuan was going to Phoebe Zhennan City to discuss the trade of Item-Storing Walnut Trees with Luo Ya. However, from the moment he saw the way Luo Ya stared at Lin Yuan, Liu Jie could not help but be on guard.
Luo Ya looked at Lin Yuan like she was ready to dig sharp hooks into him that would pull him down into a world of degeneration.
Lin Yuan was only 18 years old and did not know much about intimate relationships. As Lin Yuan’s retainer, Liu Jie could not allow a woman like Luo Ya to contaminate Lin Yuan.
Liu Jie decided he would remain at arm’s length from Lin Yuan the entire time that they were in Phoebe Zhennan City to prevent Luo Ya from having the chance to be alone with Lin Yuan.
Blackie had been flying for a few hours and would reach Phoebe Zhennan City soon.
Lin Yuan took out his phone and found the slip of paper that Luo Ya had given him with her phone number on it.
In a large manor in Phoebe Zhennan City…
A short-haired middle-aged man with an expression of displeasure looked at a despondent girl staring at her phone.
She had not taken any of what he said to heart, and he fiercely slammed down the two walnuts in his hand that resembled red jade and said, “Little Ya, are you even listening to me? The Huang family has visited multiple times. Previously, you were young and playful, so I let you do as you pleased. But now, you’re at the age to talk about marriage.
“The Huang family is a Class 2 family just like us. Huang Yu is the son of the leader of the Huang family, Huang Zhan. He is the only son in his family. When you marry into the Huang family, you’ll become the Mistress of the household once Huang Yu succeeds Huang Zhan.
“I’m not insisting that you have to marry Huang Yu, but he has always liked you. Why don’t you give it a try and get to know him? You can tell me if you really don’t like him, and I’ll reject the marriage proposal.”
This was not the first time that Luo De was bringing up marriage with Luo Ya.
She had turned her father down previously because she had not had her fill of fun and did not want to settle down so soon. The people of the Divine Wood Federation were open-minded, and she did not think her past actions were embarrassing even if they were exposed. However, she would not be able to act in the same carefree manner once she was married.
However, she was rejecting him now for a different reason. In the past few days, all thoughts of playing had evaporated as thoughts of Lin Yuan occupied every crevice of her mind now.
After seeing how amazing he was, she could not bother with Huang Yu, much less marry him.
When she saw how desperately her father was trying to persuade her, Luo Ya placed her phone down on the table and said, “Father, you’ve been suggesting those three families to me over the years because our family is the weakest out of the four Class 2 Creation Master families in Phoebe Zhennan City. But at the end of the day, we’re still a Class 2 Creation Master family. How will it affect us if we don’t become linked to a Class 3 family through marriage?”
Luo De sighed.
Luo Ya was still too young to think of the key parts of this.
There were currently four Class 2 Creation Master families and one Class 3 Creation Master family in Phoebe Zhennan City. The Zhang family was the Class 3 Creation Master family, and they were poised to dominate all the Creation Master resources in Phoebe Zhennan City.
The leader of the Zhang family had recently been promoted from a mid-level Class 3 Creation Master to a high-level Class 3 Creation Master. It was clear that the Zhang family was trying to put pressure on the four Class 2 Creation Master families.
Amongst the Class 2 Creation Master families, the Huang family was the only one who was linked to the Zhang family by marriage. The Mistress of the Zhang family was the younger sister of the head of the Huang family.
If Luo Ya married Huang Yu, the Luo family would become linked to the Zhang family.
Currently, the Luo family’s strongest fey was the Platinum III/Flawless Poison Dust Flying Moth. Meanwhile, the Zhang family head had the Platinum X/Fantasy Rotting Poison Snake Wyrm.
It was impossible for the Luo family to stand against the Zhang family.
Luo De had always doted on Luo Ya. If he had any other option, he would not force her when it came to matters of the heart and cause her to sacrifice her happiness.
Just as Luo De was about to try and convince Luo Ya again, the latter picked up her phone and said solemnly to her father, “Father, I already have someone I like.”
Luo De frowned. However, he did not lose his temper at Luo Ya. Instead, he kept a lid on his emotions and said, “Little Ya, is the person you like one of the members of the group of robbers that you invested in a few years ago?”
Luo Ya thought about the gang of dirty and rough men from the Withered Cliff Thief Death Corps and almost choked.
When Luo De saw the look of disdain on Luo Ya’s face, he knew that the person she liked was not a member of the Withered Cliff Thief Death Corps.
Then who could it be? Has she caught real feelings for one of the boys she plays around with?
Luo De decided to snap some sense into Luo Ya so that she would start to seriously consider Huang Yu.
“Little Ya, is the man you like in Phoebe Zhennan City now? If so, call him here so I can take a look at him.”
Luo Ya did not know what Luo De was planning. But when he mentioned Lin Yuan’s possible location, she immediately withered on the inside.
I want to know where Lin Yuan is too! But almost nine days have passed, and the phone just refuses to ring!
Just as Luo Ya was swimming in the depths of despair, her phone started to ring.
Her eyes instantly lit up with hope, and she excitedly checked it.
When she saw that the call was coming from Lin Yuan, she anxiously grabbed the chair’s armrest and carefully cleared her throat before picking up.
She had wanted to wait for him to speak first as a ladylike gesture. However, she failed to control herself and babbled the moment she picked up, “Have you been busy as of late? You haven’t called me once! When will you have the time to come to Phoebe Zhennan City so I can give you a tour? I have eaten at some of the restaurants in Phoebe Zhennan City ever since I was young, and they have great food!”
