Chapter 186: Gui You Regrets
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Su Xiaolu was so tired that she was trembling. She had worn the heavy item last night and her limbs were tired. The last two hours were especially torturous.
Su Chong’s expression was normal. At this moment, he was looking at Gui You’s swordplay in high spirits.
Gui You’s was very good at martial arts, and his sword technique was exquisite. After practicing for a while, his expression became even colder.
When the time came, Su Xiaolu trembled and almost cried. “Master Gui You…”
Su Chong jumped down in two steps and quickly supported Su Xiaolu. He asked with concern, “What’s wrong, Xiaolu? Are you feeling unwell?”
Su Xiaolu almost cried. She was exhausted.
Gui You walked over calmly. He reached out and patted Su Chong. “Kid, don’t you feel anything unusual about your body?”
Su Chong was puzzled. “?”
“Look at your younger siblings. Standing for a while is already their limit, but you and Simei can last for a few hours.”
Gui You looked at Su Chong with a trace of shock on his deep face.
Su Chong pondered for a moment before saying, “I’m just stronger.”
Gui You shook his head. He wasn’t just strong.
Su Chong had an excellent foundation. Many people practiced martial arts since they were three years old. Those who never practiced martial arts would have their meridians slowly blocked. Su Xiaolu’s foundation was already very good, but she had medical skills.
Su Chong was different. He was already 16 years old. At this age, it was too late to do anything, let alone practice martial arts. However, his meridians did not even need to be opened. He was a genius with an excellent foundation.
Gui You looked at Su Chong seriously and said, “Kid, I have the intention to take you in as my disciple. Are you willing?”
After accepting Su Xiaolu and discovering that her brother was a martial arts genius, Gui You was heartbroken.
He had regretted it countless times. Screw the one disciple rule.
Su Chong and Su Xiaolu were siblings. They were all family.
Especially today, when he saw those children who came to stand on the pillars out of curiosity, he was even more determined to take Su Chong as his disciple.
Su Chong was a little happy, but he held Su Xiaolu and looked at Gui You. “But you’re Xiaolu’s master.”
As an elder brother, how could he compete with his younger sister? He wanted to learn from Gui You, but he cared more about Su Xiaolu.
It was fine if he didn’t learn martial arts. If Su Xiaolu was sad, he would be too.
Su Xiaolu was also afraid.
Gui You looked at Su Chong gently and said, “The girl is my disciple, and you can also be my disciple. You can learn the same things. In the future, I’ll teach the girl during the day and teach you when you come back in the afternoon.”
Gui You was patient when facing Su Chong.
He could tell that Su Chong valued his family. At home, this girl was the blessing that everyone doted on. Su Chong was young and energetic. He was at the age where he would let his emotions affect his decisions. If he did not speak properly, he was sure that Su Chong would not acknowledge him as his master.
After Gui You finished speaking to Su Chong, he said to Su Xiaolu, “Girl, you’re a divine doctor. Take your brother’s pulse and see if he’s a martial arts genius. Isn’t it a pity for such a good seedling to not practice martial arts? He might not even be able to become the top scholar, but I’m good at martial arts. I can guarantee that as long as your brother goes to the battlefield, he’ll definitely be able to make something of himself and become a king with a different surname.”
“I haven’t told you my name yet, have I? Girl, kid, remember, I’m the number one swordsman in the world. I’m from the Ghost Saber Sect and have retired.”
He stood with his sword in hand and spoke calmly.
Su Xiaolu gulped in shock. The old man only said that he was powerful, but he didn’t say that he was the best in the world.
No wonder he couldn’t even see the sword when he practiced with it.
Number one? Then he would be first with a dagger too.
Su Xiaolu was very familiar with Gui You’s doting on Su Chong. Wasn’t this how the old man treated her?
It seemed she had been mistaken. Gui You had been cold to her not because of his true nature, but because she had not satisfied him to this extent.
Gui You saw that Su Chong was still considering and felt a little anxious. He said, “Kid, what are you hesitating about?”
This damned rarity.
Su Chong thought for a moment and said, “Then if I promise you, can you be less strict with Xiaolu? She’s still young and her body won’t be able to take it.”
Gui You was too harsh. It was a good thing to have a master like this. He was not afraid, but his sister was still young.
Today was even more tiring than yesterday. He couldn’t even stand on his legs when he came down.
Su Xiaolu was touched.
She looked at Gui You.
Gui You glanced at her and nodded. “Sure. She’s not as talented as you, but she’s still my personal disciple. If you’re first, she’ll be second.”
Seeing that Su Chong was willing to give in, Gui You was in a good mood.
It was a small request. He could agree to it. It didn’t affect anything.
Seeing that Gui You had agreed, Su Chong said respectfully, “Alright, I’m willing to take you as my master.”
Su Chong bent down and carried Su Xiaolu home.
Gui You’s cold expression finally softened.
He injected internal energy into Su Xiaolu to ease her legs.
Su Xiaolu couldn’t help but ask, “Master Gui You, if my brother can’t learn it, can you not kill him? Can I pay with my life?”
Gui You’s emotions were hard to understand. She was really a little afraid.
Gui You looked at Su Xiaolu in disdain. “It’s impossible that he can’t learn it, but you’re thoughtful. Although you’re not as talented as him, I’ll teach you well.”
Seeing Su Xiaolu’s sincerity, Gui You felt relieved. It was no wonder that his good disciple loved this girl.
“Also, I was just scaring you when I told you that I would kill you if you couldn’t learn it. I’m a good person. How can I kill you so easily?”
As Gui You got up to go out, he added.
For the sake of his good disciple, so what if he treated this girl better?
Since his good disciple valued family, if he treated them better, his good disciple would learn more diligently.
Su Xiaolu was stunned for a long time as she watched Gui You leave.
Actually, Gui You was the same as the old man.
As she thought about it, Su Xiaolu smiled.
She was happy for her brother and didn’t have to worry about anything else. Su Xiaolu fell asleep peacefully.
Gui You wanted to take Su Chong as his disciple.
His expression towards Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao was very gentle. He simply explained that Su Chong was very talented.
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao looked at each other. Su Sanlang smiled at Gui You and said gently, “Mr. Gui You, we still have to ask Chong about this. If he’s willing, we’ll give you an answer.”
“Yes, ask away.”
Gui You looked at Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao sincerely. He had said everything he needed to say. He got up and left.
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao also quickly called Su Chong to ask for his opinion.
Gui You returned to the next room and wrote a letter.
He expressed his approval of what Old Wu had said in the letter. At the same time, he also said that he had taken Su Chong as his disciple.
Just as Madam Zhao had said, Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao had good characters. They were very ordinary, but special at the same time.
