Chapter 258 Recruitment from the Misty Rain House

As Li Ban tried to open his mouth to question Lu Bei, Jing Yun saw through his intention from the look on his face and held him down.

“General Li Ban! Our priority comes first…” Jing Yun reminded him using telepathy.

“Fine. Let’s settle the matter regarding the World Passage first!”

Li Ban withdrew his gaze but his spirit sense still lingered around Ning Fan, secretly spying on him.

Li Ban knew that this person was Lu Bei. Moreover, he had already learned about the shocking news where he eliminated three Spirit Severing Realm demons on his own.

However, the longer he studied that person in such a close distance, the more familiar he felt about him.

Such eerie but familiar feeling… Could he be Zhou Ming?! No. Impossible! The last time I met him, he was just a Harmonious Spirit Realm ant. Besides, I had already destroyed the ancient teleportation formation right after it was activated. There was no place where he could survive in the Void Realm, let alone appear in a place like this… Besides, I don’t believe that a Harmonious Spirit Realm ant is able to cultivate and obtain the power to kill Spirit Severing Realm experts within just tens of years! But…what’s the explanation for this familiar aura and my previous demon partners?”

Li Ban’s mind was a little troubled.

After exchanging conventional greetings with some of the guests, Ning Fan withdrew his expression and steadily sat beside Lu Wan’er.

Deep inside, he was sneering.

The current Li Ban is no longer equal to me! It’s why he could not even see through my Sense Falsifying Art!

Such person has come to Luo Yun Province together with Jing Yun and they will probably look for me in the future. There will be lots of chances to kill him!

As for Lu Daochen, after privately exchanging glances with Ning Fan while nodding his head in good faith, he moved on to greet the other guests. He did not even have a deep conversation with Ning Fan, not to mention explaining to him about what they were going to cooperate in.

Those who could enter the Encompassing Heaven Hall were mostly Late Nascent Soul Realm experts and the members of influential forces in the Luo Yun Tribe.

As maidservants, the Flower Demoness and the Wind Demoness stood at Ning Fan’s sides while helping him to refill the wine in his cup.

Lu Wan’er was sitting on his right-hand side while the green-dressed lady from the Misty Rain House was sitting on his left.

Seeing the two women serving Ning Fan, Lu Wan’er’s eyebrows knitted together. Her woman’s intuition told her that the relationship between Ning Fan and the two women were not simple.

“They are…”

“My concubines…” Ning Fan smiled and answered without trying to conceal that fact. After all, there were some things he had to let Lu Wan’er know bit by bit.

“Oh…” Lu Wan’er appeared to be a little dispirited. Her disappointment was not because of the fact that Ning Fan had concubines. She was disappointed because Ning Fan did not tell her about it and took in concubines on his own…

Right. In the past when Lu Bei tried to behave like a hedonist, he used to ravage countless women…

Quickly, she refreshed her thoughts and replaced her disappointed look with a smile and introduced the green-dressed lady to Ning Fan.

“This is the most popular courtesan of the Misty Rain House – Yao Fei. She is my one and only friend in the province. In the past when Lu Tianming tried to force me into marrying him by surrounding me within the Misty Rain House with his troops, it was her who aided me in my escape.”

“He surrounded the Misty Rain House with soldiers…” Ning Fan frowned. He did not expect that Lu Tianming had done such a thing.

If he had known it earlier, he would have probably finished that man off even if Lu Daochen was there to stop him.

But what was more beyond his expectations was that Lu Tianming did not attend such an important banquet.

Half of it is probably because he was critically injured by me and the other half is because he is afraid of me. It’s why he doesn’t dare to appear in front of me again…

He is quite a cunning kid, quite slippery like an eel. Apparently, he learnt quite a lot about the behaviors of a typical young master. As soon as danger approaches, his shadow disappears…

“This is not the main point!” Lu Wan’er rolled her eyes at Ning Fan, pouting her lips. The disheartened feeling that she felt earlier had completely vanished like an evaporating cloud. Although she was wearing a sulky face, she was touched by Ning Fan’s reaction.

Lu Bei frowned because of my sufferings…

“*Chuckle* So this is Lu Bei, the person whom Little Sister Wan’er praised excessively and incessantly. Hmm. This person is truly extraordinary. I can’t see through him at all with my current cultivation level…”

“Big Sister, you are just at the Late Nascent Soul Realm. Of course you can’t see through him! Besides, since when did I praise him…”

“You dare to deny? Weren’t you telling me about him non-stop in the past few days? You even said that ‘If I can marry Lu Bei, I will never regret it for my entire life’…”

“I didn’t say that!”

Lu Wan’er’s face blushed in embarrassment. Although Ning Fan was sitting between the two of them, his presence was disregarded as Lu Wan’er began to frolic with the green-dressed lady.

The frown on Ning Fan’s face gradually loosened up.

In the banquet, there were not many of them who could gain his attention.

The two generals of the Luo Yun Tribe – the Fourth General, Lu Qing and the Sixth General, Lu Zhan were not enough to make him be afraid of them.

On the other hand, the three generals of the Pure Flame Tribe – Jing Yun, Li Ban and another general were all Early Spirit Severing Realm demons. Therefore, they were incapable of making Ning Fan feel fear.

As for the other Nascent Soul Realm guests, none of them were significant at all.

Among them all, he only looked highly at two individuals. The first one was Lu Daochen. This man might just be a Mid Spirit Severing Realm expert, but his combat power seemed to be matchless among the experts at the same cultivation level as him. As an Honorable Demon General entitled as the Cloud General, he had inherited the Power of Bestowal which contained the cloud element ability. If he displays that unique power, he would be able to fight against a Late Spirit Severing Realm expert within a short period of time!
