Zhanxian - Chapter 243
Jiu Xian thought that Yang Chen had said, meant that once he lost, he would not bring out more. He smirked in his heart, Yang Chen was really a person who couldn’t understand good wine, could it taste more delicious than the Blue Cloud Immortal Class, how could it be compared with it.
After hearing the words of Yang Chen, Jiu Xian was startled and looked at him, suddenly having a sense of confidence. A good wine drinker wasn’t afraid of drinking wine.
As Yang Chen said, once he tasted the delicious wine today, he would never taste it again, but what could he do?
Seeing that Yang Chen was so determined, it seemed that he had no fear of it. For a while, Jiu Xian felt a sense of loss.
But soon Jiu Xian understood, that he had almost fallen into Yang Chen’s evil scheme. If Yang Chen could take out a delicious wine that was more delicious than Blue Cloud Immortal Class, why would he still line up here?
Understanding this clue, Jiu Xian directly shook his head and sneered: “That is the future, today this old man really has to wait for a taste of your wine.”
“Little Xue, go find some water!”
Yang Chen did not say anything more at this moment and directly directed Sun Qingxue.
Sun Qingxue was anxious, thinking about how to resolve the situation between Yang Chen and Jiu Xian. Listening to Yang Chen’s words, she couldn’t help but become awkward. Once Yang Chen couldn’t get it, wouldn’t it be very difficult? She couldn’t help but screamed: “Elder brother Yang!”
“I haven’t lied to you?”
Yang Chen smiled softly and seemed to know why Sun Qingxue was anxious.
When she heard this sentence that Yang Chen had said several times to make her heart felt at ease. Sun Qingxue didn’t know what it was, but she suddenly felt relieved. When Yang Chen said this, that kind of confident appearance made Sun Qingxue seem to return to the memory of the execution ground with her whole family, she then seemed to return to the small courtyard where the master was riddled with Blood Phantom Vine.
So, Sun Qingxue had no doubt again, she directly rushed into the restaurant. As a Blue Cloud Sect’s disciple, it was not a big problem for her to go in for a glass of water. After a while, she walked out with a large basin of clear water.
The folks of the restaurant were also smart, and they have heard the movement outside. They did not hesitate to move a table out and bring a set of chairs to the front of Jiu Xian. Jiu Xian was impolite, sitting directly in the chair unceremoniously, waiting quietly.
Sun Qingxue put the large basin of water on the table and then naturally walked behind Yang Chen. Yang Chen did not talk much nonsense, but also sat on the opposite side of the table.
From his Cosmos bag, Yang Chen took out a large jade wine glass, almost three or two. Later, Yang Chen thought about it and it seemed to be a pity. He took the glass back and replaced it with a small cup of two quantities and put it on the table. At the same time, a jug was pulled out and placed next to it.
This action was very obvious. The meaning of his expression was very clear, he couldn’t bear to drink a large glass of the wine, so he would only use a small cup.
Seeing this look, even Jiu Xian was looking forward to it. The way Yang Chen cherished it, could there really be a better wine?
In the eyes of the public, Yang Chen injected the clear water into the jug. This action coursed a doubt in the people watching. Was this going to be wine or drinking water? The people on the side began to talk about it.
There was such a big movement here, and other people who bought and sold in the market square had also come around. Although not everyone was good at drinking wine, but a well-known wine drinker senior and a younger generation’s bet, it was still much worth seeing.
After completing everything, the pot had already been filled with more than half of the clear water. Yang Chen stood up and bowed his head to the people around him. He loudly reminded: “Friends with shallow alcohol capacity, please take a few steps back, so that you wouldn’t get affected.”
What did that mean? Have they been reminded of drinking yet? This was too much to look down on! Everyone had such an idea in their minds. Arrogant! Did he really think that alcohol qi could make people drunk?
The way the people were acting, Yang Chen didn’t care. He had already warned and if others didn’t listen, it was not his business. At most, some people would be smoked and drunk like the drunkards flailing around this area. It wasn’t a big deal.
Jiu Xian had been irritated by Yang Chen’s move. The more Yang Chen was like this, the more he felt that he was right, the alcohol qi could make people intoxicated, what kind of strong liquor was this? Before Yang Chen took out the wine, Jiu Xian had already begun to sit uneasily, without the image of a senior.
In the long-awaited hands of Yang Chen, he didn’t know when a blue-yellow gourd appeared. Yang Chen held the gourd’s waist, opened the gourd cover, and carefully began to tilt slowly over the jug.
A drop of viscous liquid slowly appeared from the gourd’s mouth, and then reluctantly lingered on the gourd’s mouth for a while, which then completely separated from the gourd and slammed into the water in the jug. Immediately, Yang Chen was like hiding a treasure, quickly covering the gourd and taking it away.
From the time the liquid appeared, the eyes of the people did not move. The strange thing was that although Yang Chen was very solemn, but everyone couldn’t smell a trace of wine, was this the wine that Yang Chen talked about?
Senior Jiu Xian was also wondering, but soon he no longer doubted Yang Chen’s words. Among the jug, there was a faint smell of wine. He sat down closer to it and smelled it most clearly.
This wine’s smell faintly spread around, and everyone could smell it. Slowly, the wine was getting stronger and more fragrant. There were a lot of good wine drinkers here. At this moment, a series of sounds like sucking of the nose was made, one after another, it was interesting.
However, the exudation of the wine taste did not stop at all. As time went by, the fragrant smell quickly filled the entire market. There were a few with shallow cultivation, and their face had already begun to appear red, they were actually intoxicated and a little bit drunk just by the alcohol qi.
The original street had a flavour of Blue Cloud Immortal Class, but now, the noses and minds of the people were filled with this mellow wine, and there was no such thing as the Blue Cloud Immortal Class.
The performance of the senior Jiu Xian was even worse. Although he was sitting neatly, his nose was swaying in a row, as if he wanted to completely absorb the smell of this fragrance into his nose. If it weren’t for so many people watching here, maybe Jiu Xian couldn’t hold it anymore, and the jug would be taken up and drunk already.
Yang Chen finally picked up the jug and shook it gently in his hand, so that the wine yeast dissolved completely. With his movements, some people in the city finally fell, whistled and snored.
However, no one cared about this. Everyone’s eyes were moving with the jug in the hands of Yang Chen. After a while, he grabbed the jug and gently picked a small cup on the table.
After filling it, Yang Chen rushed to the opposite side of Jiu Xian and made a request for action.
Yang Chen had made a series of tricks, which had already wet the appetite of Jiu Xian, it should be remembered that before the gambling, it was said that in addition to this glass of wine, there would be nothing else.
When he smelled the wine, Jiu Xian knew that he had lost miserably. In this world, there was such a great wine, just the smell, could make people intoxicated.
However, the wine was in front of his eyes, smelling the flavour, he restrained himself, grabbed the little jade cup, looked at the quantity which was not enough, and could not help but feel some reluctance.
Under his nose, he smelled it for a while and enjoyed the rare flavour. Senior Jiu Xian couldn’t bear it anymore. He took the wine glass and sent it to his mouth.
On the tip of his tongue, he immediately felt the most delicious stimulation. It was just the wine made from just a drop, that was, just enough to moisturize the tongue. He contained it in his mouth for a long time, Jiu Xian was reluctant to swallow it into his belly.
A burning sensation passed directly from his mouth to the soles of his feet and back to the top of his head, then changed to a cool feeling. Between the cool and warm, the spiritual power of his whole body seemed to have burned up, his pores opened naturally, a burst of alcohol qi spurted out and then under the control of Jiu Xian, it was smashed back into his pores.
Senior Jiu Xian was no longer able to maintain his posture and sit respectfully, he closed his eyes and look up to the sky, the intoxication and enjoyment appeared unobtrusive in the eyes of the audience.
The people who lined up to buy wine, were stalking their heads one by one and kept sucking their noses. The sound of sucking on the scene did not stop, as if everyone wanted to absorb all the wine qi that was in the air.
“One more cup!”
Senior Jiu Xian finally opened his eyes again and put the glass on the table, but he was not willing to let go, still holding it in his fingers, and said to Yang Chen.
Yang Chen was not stingy, he gave a full cup of wine to Jiu Xian, looking at him with a smile.
However, at this moment, Jiu Xian had no interest in Yang Chen’s previous talk. This glass of wine was simply a jade liquid, and all the wine worms buried in his body were hooked on it. It seemed that a small hand had been extended in his throat. It kept rushing and wanting the wine to be poured into his mouth immediately.
After making a long intoxicating sigh for a long time, Jiu Xian finally sent this small glass of wine into his mouth. With the action of Jiu Xian, the sound of swallowing water was heard on the scene, and Sun Qingxue behind Yang Chen was immediately shocked.
Sun Qingxue did not expect it at all. Yang Chen’s drop of wine turned out to be so delicious. When she was a child, she was from a good family and she had a lot of wine. Although she didn’t like the things in the cup, she could also find out whether the wine was good or bad.
The wine qi made several drinkers drunk, Sun Qingxue was so close, but she was fine. Obviously, her drinking capacity was also good. But she still couldn’t imagine, so many people simultaneously swallowing their saliva unexpectedly.
They were all from Blue Cloud Sect. Their behaviour made her very embarrassed. In front of Big Brother Yang, could they not keep the face of Blue Cloud Sect?
However, looking at Jiu Xian of the Yuanying realm making such a face, she could not blame those who were the same. This kind of wine was a delicious food that people craved to have!
After giving the two cups to Jiu Xian, Yang Chen no longer intended to give him anymore. He turned and directly put the jug into the small hand of Sun Qingxue, “little Xue, take it.”
“Brother Yang, this is too expensive!”
Sun Qingxue also knew how to understand the value of this jug, and hurriedly shoved it back.
“Oh, it is not that precious, this is just the distiller’s yeast that the clear water melts.”
Yang Chen would not have her reject it, and directly shoved it back.
“First take the solution, wait for the day for me to let you taste the special brew that is the top-grade delicacy.”
After these words, the people listening around and Jiu Xian, were all stunned. This kind of wine was actually not that precious? However, Yang Chen’s words were very reasonable. The distiller’s yeast that the clear water melts, was certainly inferior to the distiller’s yeast that was specially-made as a liquor to hydrate, this was general knowledge.
This also meant that there was something even more delicious. The eyes of Senior Jiu Xian had already lit up, he was staring at Yang Chen, just like staring at a peerless treasure. However, while watching Yang Chen, he didn’t forget to let the corner of his eye follow the jug in Sun Qingxue’s hand.
The special drink was of course wonderful, but it wasn’t enough? Now, it was only the jug in Sun Qingxue’s hand that could solve it. Senior Jiu Xian had begun to rack his brains to find a way, how to get a cup of wine from Sun Qingxue’s hand. He was strong enough to grab it? As a Senior and as a guest of the Blue Cloud Sect, he can’t do anything like that. It seemed that only way was to use things to exchange for it.
“Senior, this wine, how is the taste compared with Blue Cloud Immortal Class?”
At this time, Yang Chen said such a sentence, and suddenly let Jiu Xian immediately recall the taste of the two glasses of wine, he couldn’t help but swallowed his saliva.
He wanted to shake his head and reject it, but Jiu Xian looked at the jug in the hands of Sun Qingxue and couldn’t help but admit. Finally, there was only one point:,“I lost!”
Jiu Xian was also trustworthy, directly throwing his own Cosmos bag to the table, “look inside and take whatever you want yourself!”
Under his control, the mouth of the Cosmos bag had been opened, waiting for Yang Chen to pick it himself. This was a bet. Under the eyes of the public, Jiu Xian would never reconcile, not to mention the large jug of wine next to it.
This bet Yang Chen made was righteous and had no polite thoughts. He opened the Cosmos bag directly and began to look at the things inside.
As a senior of the Yuanying realm, there were many good things in his Cosmos bag. However, those so-called high-level magic weapons, Yang Chen did not keep them in his eyes. On the contrary, a small thing thrown at the corner of the Cosmos bag by Jiu Xian caught his attention.
It was a wooden sign with a very irregular shape and a pattern of twisted characters. It looked very ancient, and if there wasn’t spiritual power to support, it might have decayed.
Jiu Xian looked at Yang Chen who actually picked such a broken wooden card, and thought that it an accident, could not help but scream, “are you sure?”
Yang Chen replied affirmatively.
Jiu Xian stared at Yang Chen with a strange look. He said, “this is what this old man got by chance. No one knows what the patterns are. If you want it, take it!”
