Chapter 318 Discord!
Hei Yinghao thought for a moment, but he could only shake his head and said: "Looks like we have no other choice… You will go first and use your [Frozen Blast] to freeze him, then I will use my [Blood Burst] and [Blood Ignition] to knock him off in one move. How about it?"
Bing Yi glared at Hei Yinghao and said with a tone filled with annoyance: "Why do I need to listen to you? Who do you think you are? How dare you order me around?!"
Hei Yinghao became speechless in an instant, then shouted back in anger: "Do you really think I want to spend my precious time with you?! If not for this task from Instructor Mei Lan, I would have already left you alone and chase after my Little Xue by now!"
Bing Yi rolled her eyes and lazily replied: "Silly Fox… If not for this task from Instructor Mei Lan, you will not be the first one to chase after Little Xue, but me!"
This was Instructor Mei Lan's miscalculation.
When there was Tang Li Xue among them, these two were usually acted friendly and tolerated each other very much, but without Tang Li Xue, they kept arguing with each other on and on, wasted so much of their time.
After arguing fiercely for 15 minutes or so, Hei Yinghao finally got sick over it and said: "All right, shut up! Then we will do it just like before! You will target one, and I will target one too! We will bring them to Little Xue's room and interrogate them together there later!"
Hei Yinghao and Bing Yi decided to split up and targeted the two different higher-ups from the Lin Family.
Instructor Mei Lan who had been stealthily following them from behind had shaken her head in disappointment.
'Sigh… these two are really… far worse than I have imagined before!' Instructor Mei Lan sighed, but she still decided to quietly follow them again from behind.
Although, Hei Yinghao and Bing Yi had split up, but the courtyard of their targets were close to each other, so Instructor Mei Lan could still observe the movements of those two disciples of her.
This was the common problem faced by the team formed for the first time.
Usually, they would fight to determine the team leader, and the other two must follow that team leader's order later on.
However, Tang Li Xue's team had never faced this kind of dispute.
Both Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao had decided to follow Tang Li Xue and make her their leader. Even though Tang Li Xue never ordered them around, but both Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao would do everything they can to help Tang Li Xue to complete the mission.
However, Instructor Mei Lan thought their synergies with each other were so good before. That was the reason why she decided to bring them along with her when she carried her mission like this.
'I am really too hasty this time… It seems they are not ready for this.' Instructor Mei Lan thought as she pondered for a while.
'I will try to warn them harshly later, then I will see their next performance later in the next mission. If they still act like this, then...' Instructor Mei Lan squinted her eyes.
Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao moved swiftly and sneaked silently into their target's place.
They jumped from the wall and entered from the backyard, then easily broke the lock of the backdoor.
But the cultivators at Foundation Establishment Stage already have sharp senses while Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao did not have any stealth-type divine ability like Tang Li Xue's [Ethereal Form], passive ability: [Conceal], or learn the [Art of Concealment], so they immediately got discovered.
"Who is there?!"
"Who dares to sneak into my place?!"
Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao knew that they had already been discovered by the people in the house, so both of them immediately rushed in and decided to attack the people in the house!
However, before they could start the fight…
[Heavenly Sound]... Third Song: Dreamy Lullaby!
A languid but nice to hear song started to enter everyone's ears.
Everyone in the radius of this song started to feel very sleepy including Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao.
One by one began to fall deep asleep, and their bodies fell onto the ground. They were even snoring loudly.
Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao tried to resist it, but even they could only last for a few minutes before fell into a deep sleep too.
Both Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao were thrown into a pool in the courtyard, and they immediately opened their eyes in panic, then swam onto the edge of the pool.
After they jumped out from the pool, they immediately realized that the one who had thrown them into the pool was Instructor Mei Lan.
"Instructor Lan, why… why do you throw us into here?" Hei Yinghao asked.
Instructor Mei Lan glared at both of them, but Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao did not dare to see into her eyes.
"You two really make me very disappointed. Don't you two know what teamwork means? Also... your way of thinking is too rigid and inflexible! Why do you two need to slip into their house? Sigh..." Instructor Mei Lan did not know what to say to them anymore since there were just too many things that went wrong.
Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao felt even guiltier and did not dare to raise their heads.
Instructor Mei Lan thought for a few moments before took out a crystal ball from her space pouch and gave them to Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao.
"Instructor Lan, what is this?" Bing Yi asked curiously.
"This is the spying-type device. As long as I wear this white hairpin, you can see what I do through this crystal ball. I want you to go back to Little Xue's room and look at how I complete this task. Do you two understand?" Instructor Mei Lan explained as she showed them a common-looking white hairpin.
Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao quickly nodded their head simultaneously and quickly ran back to Tang Li Xue's room.
Instructor Mei Lan shook her head and walked toward the courtyard of Lin Family's Patriarch.
When she almost arrived there, Instructor Mei Lan took out a jug of wine before approached the courtyard of Lin Family's Patriarch.
She also pulled her black hood a bit to make her elegant beautiful face more visible to anyone who was looking at her.
Instructor Mei Lan knocked at the gate of the Lin Family's Patriarch place a few times.
Not long after that, the butler of Lin Family's Patriarch came to open the gate, and he greeted Instructor Mei Lan politely.
Instructor Mei Lan smiled gently and said: "I only want to drink this Nine Fragrance Wine with Lin Family's Patriarch while chatting with him for a bit. But if Lin Family's Patriarch is too busy right now, then I can..."
Before Instructor Mei Lan finished her words, Lin Family's Patriarch already replied from inside: "Please come inside, Miss Envoy. I hope you do not mind my humble residence."
Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao, who watched at Instructor Mei Lan from the crystal ball, had dropped their jaws in awe at Instructor Mei Lan's way.
She just walked into the courtyard of Lin Family's Patriarch blatantly!
But Lin Family's Patriarch was an expert at Core Formation Stage. He was on a completely different level with the elders at Foundation Establishment Stage!
Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao started to feel really worried about Instructor Mei Lan's safety.
Meanwhile, the butler led Instructor Mei Lan to enter the courtyard and heading toward the inner garden where Lin Family's Patriarch already waited for her.
Instructor Mei Lan started to assess Lin Family's Patriarch the moment she saw him.
She already saw Lin Family's Patriarch before when he greeted her in front of the entrance of Lin Family's residence, but she could not evaluate him at that time since there were too many people previously.
Lin Family's Patriarch was already a few hundred years old, but he still looked young, maybe around 25-30 years old.
His appearance was average at best, but the pressure emitted from his body was quite scary.
The eyes of Lin Family's Patriarch immediately brightened a lot when he saw Instructor Mei Lan's charming beauty.
Instructor Mei Lan's beauty gave a different feeling from Tang Li Xue's stunning beauty.
If Tang Li Xue's beauty could make anyone who looked at her dumbfounded, then Instructor Mei Lan's beauty would make anyone who saw her feel awe and comfortable.
It would make her appear gentle and graceful. Anyone will certainly have a good feeling toward her after they saw her appearance.
Lin Family's Patriarch stood up and saluted Instructor Mei Lan while smiled at her: "Miss Envoy, you are really beautiful. I, Lin Xuan, really admire you very much."
Instructor Mei Lan covered her mouth with her long sleeve and giggled softly.
She appeared so elegant and lovely right now. Even Lin Family's Patriarch could almost not be able to hold the urge to hug her right now.
But Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao already shuddered in fear and horror when they saw how Instructor Mei Lan acting.
Not to mention Lin Family's Patriarch, even both of them would fall into Instructor Mei Lan's sweet trap if they did not know Instructor Mei Lan's objective right now!
"So the name of Lin Family's Patriarch is Lin Xuan. Patriarch Lin is really a sweet talker. Patriarch Lin does not need to be so polite to me. You can call me by my name, Mei Hua." Instructor Mei Lan said while giving fist palm salute to Patriarch Lin, but her gentle and enticing smile never left her beautiful face.
