“Ahem.” The old man in white robe coughed lightly, stood up, cupped his hands towards Xiao Zhan, and said with a smile: “Chief Xiao, I came to your family this time mainly because I have something to ask for!”
“Haha, Mr. Ge Ye, please tell me if you have anything to say. If it is within our ability, the Xiao family will not refuse.” Xiao Zhan did not dare to neglect this old man, and quickly stood up and said politely, but because he did not know what the other party wanted. What’s the matter, so I don’t dare to talk too much.
“Haha, Chief Xiao, do you know her?” Ge Ye smiled slightly, pointed at the girl beside him and asked with a smile.
“Uh… I’m sorry for Xiao Zhan’s poor eyesight, but this lady…” Hearing this, Xiao Zhan was startled, looked the girl up and down, and shook his head in embarrassment.
When Nalan Yanran was accepted as a disciple by Yun Yun, she was only ten years old and had been practicing in Yunlan Sect for five years. She had not seen the so-called eighteenth transformation of a girl for many years. Naturally, Xiao Zhan didn’t know about the girl in front of him. She is her daughter-in-law in name only.
“Ahem…her name is Nalan Yanran.”
“Nalan Yanran? Mr. Nalan’s granddaughter Nalan Yanran?” Xiao Zhan was startled at first, and then his face was full of joy. He must have remembered what happened back then. At that moment, he hurriedly showed a gentle smile to the girl: “It turns out She’s Nalan’s niece, Uncle Xiao hasn’t seen you for many years, so don’t blame uncle for his poor eyesight.”
The scene that suddenly appeared made everyone slightly stunned. The three elders looked at each other and frowned…
“Uncle Xiao, my niece has never come to see her, so she should apologize, but how can I dare to blame Uncle Xiao.” Nalan Yanran said with a sweet smile.
“Haha, niece Nalan, I have heard before that you were taken under Master Yun Yun’s sect. I thought it was a rumor at the time, but unexpectedly, it turned out to be true. My niece is really talented…” Xiao Zhan praised with a smile.
“Yanran is just lucky…” With a faint smile, Nalan Yanran couldn’t stand Xiao Zhan’s enthusiasm. She gently pulled the kudzu leaves beside her with her palm under the table.
“Haha, Chief Xiao, what I am requesting today is related to Yan Ran, and the sect leader himself spoke about it…” Ge Ye chuckled lightly, and when he mentioned the word sect master, the expression on his face, Slightly solemn.
His face changed slightly, and Xiao Zhan also suppressed his smile. Yun Yun, the leader of the Yunlan Sect, was a big shot in the Jiama Empire. He, the head of a small clan, couldn’t afford to be offended at all. But with her strength and power, she could not afford to be offended. Do you need help from the Xiao family? Ge Ye said it was related to Nalan’s niece, right?
Thinking of some possibility, the corners of Xiao Zhan’s mouth couldn’t help but twitch a few times, and his huge palms trembled slightly, but fortunately they were covered by his sleeves, so they were not discovered. He suppressed the anger in his heart and his voice was trembling. He said in a condensed voice: “Mr. Kuzuye, please speak!”
“Ahem…” Ge Ye’s face suddenly showed a hint of embarrassment, but remembering the sect master’s love for Nalan Yanran, he could only grit his teeth and said with a smile: "Clan Chief Xiao, you also know that the Yunlan Sect has a strict family style, and the sect master The expectations for Yanran are also very high. Now she is basically being trained as the next sect leader of the Yunlan Sect… and due to some special rules, the sect leader’s successors are not allowed to have entanglements with men before they become the official sect leader… …”
“After asking about Yan Ran, the lord of the sect learned that she has a marriage relationship with the Xiao family, so…the lord of the sect wants to ask the Xiao clan leader to…can dissolve the engagement.”
“Crack!” The jade cup in Xiao Zhan’s hand suddenly turned into a puff of powder.
In the hall, the atmosphere was somewhat silent. The three elders above were also shocked by Kuzu Ye’s words. However, after a moment, there was a touch of sarcasm and ridicule in their eyes when they looked at Xiao Zhan.
“Hey, someone came to your door and forcibly broke off the engagement. Let’s see how much prestige you, the patriarch, will have in managing the family in the future!”
Some of the younger generation of boys and girls did not know about the engagement between Xiao Yan and Nalan Yanran, but after asking their parents around them, their faces suddenly became brighter, and they cast sarcastic and mocking glances towards the corner. Xiao Yan…
Looking at Xiao Zhan’s extremely gloomy face, Nalan Yanran did not dare to raise her head, buried her head, and twisted her fingers together nervously.
“Clan Chief Xiao, I know this request is a bit too much, but for the sake of the sect leader, please cancel the engagement…” Ge Ye said lightly with a helpless sigh.
Xiao Zhan clenched his fists, and a faint cyan fighting spirit gradually covered his body, and finally vaguely gathered on his face to form an illusory lion’s head.
The Xiao family’s top skill: Wild Lion’s Fury! Level: Intermediate Xuan level!
Looking at Xiao Zhan’s reaction, Ge Ye’s face suddenly became solemn, and he blocked Nalan Yanran’s body. His hands like eagle claws suddenly curled up, and green fighting energy gathered in the eagle claws, exuding a small and sharp… The sword energy.
The Yun Lan Sect’s profound skills, the Green Wood Sword Technique! Level: Low level of Xuan level!
As the breaths of the two people erupted, the faces of the weaker teenagers in the hall suddenly turned pale, and their chests immediately felt a little tight.
Just as Xiao Zhan’s breathing became more rapid, the sharp shouts of the three elders sounded like thunder in the hall: "Xiao Zhan, stop it! Don’t forget that you are the patriarch of the Xiao family. !”
His body suddenly stiffened, and the fighting spirit in Xiao Zhan’s body slowly converged, and finally disappeared completely.
Sitting back on the chair, Xiao Zhan looked at Nalan Yanran with an indifferent expression and said in a hoarse voice: “Niece Nalan, you are so courageous. Nalan Su has a daughter like you, it is really impressive. I’m jealous!”
Her delicate body trembled slightly, and Nalan Yanran said: “Uncle Xiao…”
“Haha, just call me Patriarch Xiao. I can’t bear the title of uncle. You will be the future head of the Yunlan Sect, and you will also be a prominent figure in the Dou Qi Continent in the future. My Yan’er is just a person with mediocre qualifications, and indeed he is qualified. If I don’t want you…” Xiao Zhan waved his hand lightly and said in an indifferent tone.
“Thank you, Patriarch Xiao, for your understanding.” Hearing this, Ge Ye was overjoyed and smiled apologetically at Xiao Zhan: “Chief Xiao, the sect leader knows that today’s request is very impolite, so I specially asked me to bring something. Consider it an apology!”
As he spoke, Kuzu Ye reached out and wiped a ring on his finger, and a green ancient jade box appeared out of thin air in his hand…
Opening the box carefully, a strange fragrance immediately filled the hall, making everyone who smelled it feel refreshed.
The three elders stretched their heads curiously and looked into the jade box. Their bodies shook violently and they said in shock: “Qi Gathering Powder?”
