The Silly Alchemist Chapter 488Death By A Single Arrow (4)
Li Yue was taken by surprise. Before she could fire her arrow, Ye Lang had already shot his own. She stood stunned as the arrow show past her like a bolt of lightning.
It wasnt just because she hadnt expected Ye Lang to shoot first, most importantly, she couldnt believe how fast this arrow was travelling, it was unbelievable.
Shed witnessed his archery skills at the range and already felt inferior to him. To her, hed already reached the peak of archery, perhaps not many could beat him in this mainland.
However, at this moment, she felt that perhaps even then she was underestimating just how powerful he was.
Ye Langs arrow shot forward like lightning, appearing in front of the wolfs eye in just the blink of an eye and piercing right through it.
The wolf seemed to see something it couldnt believe at that moment. Instinctively, when it saw the arrow, it closed its eyes but what could a mere eyelid do? The arrow pierced through its eyelid.
It did not stop there. It drove straight into its head, damaging the brain. That one arrow was so powerful the wolf was almost knocked back by the force equivalent to a bull.
The mighty beast had already become the prey before it had the chance to display its magnificence. And now a dead prey.
Li Yue and Coldblood Five were in shock, surprised at the outcome. Theyd expected a long fight but Ye Langs single arrow saved them a lot of time.
Was this his true capability?
When you shoot at the range Were you holding back? Li Yue did not put down her bow and arrow. She seemed to have forgotten about it.
Holding back? Oh, are you talking about my actual skills? Of course I was. We should always be humble, we cannot always show off our true strengths. He nodded, admitting hed been holding back.
Tell me honestly, is it true youd never touched a bow and arrow before this? Li Yue had a solemn expression. She was suspicious but anyone would be.
Li Yue had been there to witness his growth from an absolute beginner to expert to this unfathomable master, and hed made this progress in 7 days!
How was it possible a person could improve so much in a week?
It didnt seem possible at all. Even a prodigy might not be able to do this.
Unless hed been lying. Hed already known archery before this and he was only there to get a chance to talk to me.
Li Yue wondered in her heart. Perhaps Ye Lang had been lying to her and set everything up in efforts to pursue her. She couldnt believe she fell for it!
Ive never done archery. He shook his head.
Never? Thats impossible! You must be lying! Youve been lying to me so you could get the chance to talk to me. Thats why we met so often wherever I went! Im so stupid, I cant believe I actually thought those were coincidences, said Li Yue coldly, feeling like she had just been cheated.
... Ye Lang was stunned for a moment then said, Youre right, they werent coincidences at all. I was trying to get to know you, I wanted to win you over.
You idiot, why did you tell her? Didnt we tell you to never admit this even if you were dying? said Coldblood Five, panicking.
She already knows, I might as well admit to it. Its not a big deal. At least now I can date her without being so shady, replied Ye Lang.
He had never cared about this anyway. So what if they knew? Why would you need to hide the fact that you were pursuing a girl? If she knows, she knows!
At this point, Athena didnt care either, nor did she think it was a big deal. At least now he could date her using all the classic strategies- so long as Li Yue never knew their true objective.
Yeah, that was the key to success. As long as no one knew about the armour, everything else was not a big deal.
No one ever said a relationship would fail if the girl found out you were pursuing her! Some people even do it with their intentions well-known, then win the girls heart with this attitude.
Athena also thought this was a good time to reveal his intentions anyway because Ye Lang had already formed a deep impression on Li Yue. Everything hed done previously had achieved this objective.
Right now, even if Li Yue knew about it, at least she would not dump him immediately and chase him out.
Hmmph. Li Yue scoffed.
Indeed, all she did was scoff. She didnt seem to intend to chase him away because they continued to hike among the hills to forage and hunt.
Dont be mad, you have so many admirers, it wont matter if you have one more. Also, I want to make one point clear: Im pursuing you, yes, but I never lied, said Ye Lang, catching up to her.
You never lied? Youve already admitted that they werent all coincidences, now youre saying you never lied? Li Yue was growing more upset, her impression of Ye Lang worsening by the minute.
In the beginning, it didnt matter to her that he was pursuing her. Like what he said, there are so many people pursuing me, its not a big deal to have one more. However, its just wrong hes refusing to admit he lied.
You never asked me! And thats why you can say I was hiding the truth from you- but I never lied, explained Ye Lang solemnly.
Li Yue was stunned for a moment. Based on Ye Langs explanation, indeed he did not lie. He was just hiding the truth but did that mean he deserved her forgiveness?
She was angry now, especially because she felt like there was something he mustve lied about. Your archery skills! Wasnt that a lie? You were such a clueless idiot before, I cant believe I even taught you on your first day! Youve already attained such a high level of mastery and you even got me to teach you. Were you just waiting for me to embarrass myself so you could laugh at me?
She grew more and more furious as she spoke, at this point she couldnt wait to teach him a lesson.
I definitely wasnt lying about that! I was exactly the clueless idiot, I was new to this! Ye Lang shook his head, explaining himself in a sincere tone to show he wasnt lying.
I cant believe youre still lying! If you were a beginner, how could you have become an archery expert in seven days?! And a very high-level master too! Ive practised for more than ten years and youve already surpassed me! This was her very honest rebuttal.
Ye Lang cocked his head and thought for a moment. About that. I think it might be because Im a prodigy.
A prodigy. Even a prodigy wouldnt be able to do that, spat Li Yue coldly.
Then Im the prodigy of the prodigies, offered Ye Lang.
... Li Yue fell silent.
Miss Li Yue, Im serious. I am not lying, I really am the prodigy of prodigies, added Ye Lang quickly because she wasnt talking.
