What To Do if You’re the Villain and the Heroine Likes You. - Chapter 97
—The fourth of Sun Tzu’s 36 strategies of war is to wait for the enemy with peace of mind. (TL Notes: Sun Tzu was a Chinese military general, strategist, philosopher, and writer who lived during the Eastern Zhou period. Link to 36 strategies. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirty-Six_Stratagems)
The fourth strategy is to wait for the enemy. Naturally, Chu Chu does not know military tactics. But she understands that in a fight between masters, ordinary moves cannot distinguish the top from the bottom. And the fight is about profound internal strength, and the fight is about this and that.
Now she was lying comfortably on the ground, while He Yunxiao had to keep a firm grip on the right hand to prevent herself from breaking free at any time.
This was bound to be not long-lasting.
When he gets tired, she can break free, or maybe he’ll be smart and admit defeat sooner.
Either way, the victory will definitely be hers.
How could I lose to He Yunxiao, a mere eighth-ranked martial artist, when I could defeat him at the drop of a hat?
Just when Chu Chu was comfortably waiting for He Yunxiao to admit defeat, this ignorant man, why else, suddenly began to sing a song.
“The sun always shines after the rain and wind, there is a clear sky over the dark clouds, cherish all the touches ……”
Chu Chu hadn’t heard anything like this and frowned and asked, “What are you doing?”
He Yunxiao looked like he was winning with pleasure and smiled, “Singing.”
This song, “The sun always shines after the rain”, was the song He Yunxiao used to play every time he took an exam during his secondary school years. It can be said that it is closely related to “psychological and physical torture”.
He Yunxiao’s left hand increased its strength at this time, holding Chu Chu’s right hand in a firm grip to prevent her from struggling desperately for her life.
Then he put his face in front of Chu Chu’s and said like a devil, “Lord Chu Chu. How about we call it a draw? I apologise to you, and you don’t kill Fan Ziruo.”
Chu Chu coldly snorted, “Impossible.”
When He Yunxiao looked at her like this, his heart burst with joy.
Last time, in the Spring Breeze Mansion, he tricked Chu Chu once to get a promise from her. This time he had to make a fortune from her!
No matter what else, Fan Ziruo, she must not be killed.
“Lord Chu Chu, do you know that on the upper abdomen of a person, there is an acupoint called the Moisture Point?”
Chu Chu’s face was calm.
As a top expert, she knew every part of her body like the back of her hand. This thing, the Moisture Point, was naturally known to her.
This place was not very important to martial arts practitioners, so she did not understand what He Yunxiao was doing by mentioning this acupoint.
He Yunxiao continued, “This acupoint is not usually useful. Sometimes, it is supplemented with acupuncture when treating abdominal pain, regurgitation, or spleen deficiency.”
Chu Chu furrowed her brows.
She had sensed a hint that something was wrong.
After taking a big detour, He Yunxiao finally stated his dreadful purpose: “By the way, it has another inconspicuous use, diuretic.”
Chu Chu, who had always been untouchable, finally paled slightly at this point.
It was said in the novel biography that those who had become immortal could open up the five elements and remain untainted by mortal dust. Although she was highly skilled in martial arts, she was still a mortal, and some mundane matters were inevitable.
She only felt that He Yunxiao’s big hand touched her upper abdomen, and then a trace of pure internal energy passed out from his fingers and kept stimulating that shameful acupuncture point.
Feeling the strange sensation coming out of her body, Chu Chu subconsciously tried to use her internal energy to shock He Yunxiao’s internal energy to stop his shameful act.
However, this was immediately noticed by He Yunxiao.
He Yunxiao leaned over and continued to whisper devilishly in Chu Chu’s ear, “Is Lord Chu Chu going to use her inner strength? I remember that you promised not to use it. Lord is not going to go back on your word, are you?”
Chu Chu turned her face the other way and said through clenched teeth, “No.”
“After all, Lord Chu Chu is true to your word. I, Yunxiao admire and revere you.”
When He Yunxiao finished speaking, his hands increased in strength.
A moment later, this great master of martial arts, the world’s best, was already clenching her teeth and holding her legs together at death’s door, not daring to make any extra movements.
He Yunxiao felt that it was almost time, and that she could not be pushed too hard. So the internal force he was channeling in his hands stopped.
He could clearly feel that Chu Chu, underneath him, sighed with relief.
He Yunxiao negotiated in a friendly voice, “Chu Chu, let’s not kill Fan Ziruo, okay?”
Chu Chu was not at all convinced and said, “If you dare to let go of me, I will immediately go and kill her.”
Hiss, you little villain, you can’t even hold your breath anymore, and you still dare to be so hard-headed.
The hand once again outputs internal force.
Chu Chu was even more defiant and said, “He Yunxiao, if you dare to let go of me, I will even kill you.”
The force was increased.
A moment later, He Yunxiao watched as Chu Chu, the number one martial artist in the world and the unbeatable Chu Chu, bit her lips tightly and a blush appeared on her face.
To be honest, although He Yunxiao didn’t like Chu Xiaoxiao as much as he liked Nanzhu, he had to admit that Chu Xiaoxiao was beautiful, and Chu Xiaoxiao with a red blush on her face, had a billion points of cuteness.
Especially, the one with the red blush now was the overbearing and unbearable Chu Xiao Xiao who once wanted to kill him outright.
Now underneath him, biting her lips with a shy face ……
Can’t think about it, no more.
The Book of Peach Blossoms.
In the midst of the Jin Dynasty, the people of Wuling fished for their livelihood. Walking along the edge of the stream, forgetting the distance of the road ……
The pressure and internal force stopped again.
He Yunxiao coaxed in a gentle voice, “Chu Chu, I consider you a winner and I apologize to you. You just don’t kill Fan Ziruo, okay?”
The red blush on Chu Chu’s face had yet to dissipate as she glared at He Yunxiao and said fiercely, “Don’t even think about it!”
He Yunxiao just couldn’t understand how this Chu Chu suddenly became so determined that she wanted to kill Fan Ziruo, given that Fan Ziruo is so close to being successfully raided and she hasn’t interacted much with Chu Fan in the past two days.
One of the three major illusions in life, she likes me.
He Yunxiao thought to himself that it was impossible. Chu Xiaoxiao was the “real” heroineheroine. She could only like Chu Fan, not anyone else. After taking another look at the favorability level, He Yunxiao put his mind at ease.
Only 39. I told you, she can’t possibly like me.
So why did she have to kill Fan Ziruo?
He Yunxiao couldn’t understand.
But he couldn’t understand it. If he didn’t understand it, Ziruo would be gone, he had to understand it!
He Yunxiao decided to review what he had said to Chu Chu.
After thinking carefully, He Yunxiao was enlightened.
He realized that although he had coaxed Chu Chu every time, he had actually been coaxing her from the perspective of the winner. It was all assuming that he was the winner and she was the loser, and then he had condescended to give in and coax her like that, no wonder she couldn’t stand it.
It has to be the other way around!
Assume that you can’t beat her and she’s the winner, then ask her for something!
Tone of voice, it has to be a tone of hopelessness!
Emotions were brewing, He Yunxiao slowly spoke.
“Chu Chu, are you still not going to admit defeat?”
Chu Chu was categorically not of a nature willing to admit defeat, she gritted her teeth and said fiercely, “I haven’t lost!”
“Can’t you just let me have my way for once?”
Hearing He Yunxiao say that, Chu Chu’s tone was indeed much softer.
“Losing is losing, winning is winning. Each according to their abilities, there is no such thing as giving in to each other.”
He Yunxiao thought silently in his heart: suppose he can’t beat her. Suppose he can’t beat her. Suppose he can’t beat her ……
“Chu Chu, we’ve fought several times, and I haven’t beaten you once, and I just want to win you once. I almost won this time, but ……”
“You can already be proud of yourself for pushing me like this, so what’s so unsatisfying about it.”
“Unfortunately, it’s always a little short.”
“Know that you are slightly behind, just work hard.”
He Yunxiao felt that it was almost time to ask her for something, so he sighed and said, “Lord Chu Chu asked me to kill Fan Ziruo, so naturally I have to do it.”
[Chu Xiaoxiao’s favorability level changed from 39 to 40]
Then began to add a billion details to the memories, “It’s just a pity that she said to me only yesterday that she wanted to see Lotus, but I didn’t expect that she wouldn’t even live to see this winter. She has treated me quite well these past few days, but it’s a pity that she should never have upset Lord Chu Chu, unfortunately.”
Chu Chu frowned and said, “If you could stay away from her, it wouldn’t hurt to let her live until next summer.”
“I always keep my word.”
The big deal is done! Let’s stall it for a while and then figure out what to do! If you can’t, use the opportunity to change Chu Chu’s mind, so that Chu Chu Chu won’t kill her.
With the guaranteed result in hand, He Yunxiao was ready to take advantage of this rare opportunity to make more money.
Who knew if there would be another heroine that needed to be made unkillable for Chu Chu to appear in the future? When the time came, how could he keep them alive without the chance to do something Chu Chu had personally promised?
He quietly released the internal force in his hands once again.
