Chapter 294 - 294 Stubborn Man
294 Stubborn Man
The hammer whistled through the air.
Ye Jin’s expression changed and she hurriedly raised her hand to block the hammer, but suddenly, her vision blurred. When she saw clearly again, she was already behind Lin Ran.
Before she could shout “be careful”, the hammer smashed into Lin Ran’s head.
After a loud bang, the hammer in Ye Jin’s father’s hand flew out, but Lin Ran was still standing there unscathed.
Lin Ran rubbed his forehead and raised his eyebrows at the dumbfounded Ye Shixiao. “Since you know who I am, you should know that this can’t hurt me.”

“Are you really Lin Ran?”
Ye Shixiao asked tentatively. Even though he was trying his best to control his voice, it was still trembling when he spoke.
Lin Ran nodded. “Ye Jin told me everything. I know why you hate me—but I can guarantee you that it’s definitely not what you think.”
“Father! Just believe him!”
Ye Jin took the opportunity to stop Ye Shixiao and quickly told him what Lin Ran told her.
After hearing everything, Ye Shixiao didn’t say anything, but he no longer looked at Lin Ran suspiciously.
After a short silence, Ye Shixiao asked coldly, “Why did you come to the Great Yong Dynasty instead of staying in the Heavenly Saint Dynasty? Aren’t you afraid that we’ll report you to the authorities and arrest you?”
“Report me to the authorities?”
Lin Ran burst out laughing. “It’s not that I look down on the Great Yong Dynasty. There are probably less than ten people in your country who can fight me for three rounds.”
Ye Shixiao’s expression changed, but he continued to say firmly, “I’m warning you, if you don’t leave my house, don’t blame me for being rude.”
Seeing Ye Shixiao’s stubborn temper, Lin Ran immediately felt a little helpless. After some thought, he suggested, “How about this? I’ll ask you a few questions. I’ll leave after you answer.”
Before Ye Shixiao could speak, Ye Jin grabbed Lin Ran’s arm. “No! You can’t leave! You still have to teach me how to cultivate!”
Ye Shixiao shouted in a low voice and reached out to pull Ye Jin, but he missed. His expression immediately turned ugly. “Jin, don’t forget that he’s the enemy of the Great Yong Dynasty. How can you let the enemy teach you?”
“Father! Lin Ran is not our enemy!”
Ye Jin frowned slightly, her childish face filled with seriousness. “In any case, I don’t think he’s as bad as the rumors say. Otherwise, how could I have come back alive when we left the city together today?”
“Did you go out of the city with him?”
When Ye Shixiao heard this, his expression changed. “Didn’t you say that the person who asked me to reforge a sword is called Huo Qiyun?”
“Huo Qiyun is him, and so is Lin Ran. That’s the fake name he used!”
“All the more reason not to let him teach you! Which good person uses a fake name?”
“Father, just believe me this once! He’s really not a bad person!”
“No! I’m your father. I have the final say in this matter!”
Seeing that the father and daughter were about to quarrel, Lin Ran, who was ignored, was a little embarrassed. He waved his hand between the two of them and asked helplessly, “Can you talk later? I’m still here.”
Only then did the two of them remember his existence. Ye Shixiao reached out and pulled Ye Jin behind him. He stared at Lin Ran and said aggressively, “I don’t care what kind of bewitching technique you cast on my daughter. Leave my house immediately! You’re not welcome here!”
Lin Ran frowned. “You don’t want to listen no matter what, right? Am I being too friendly to you?”
Hearing Lin Ran’s unfriendly tone, Ye Jin hurriedly stood out and advised, “Give me some time. Can you wait downstairs for a while?”
At this moment, Lin Ran was in a fit of anger, but for Ye Jin’s sake, he nodded and walked downstairs.
Just now, Lin Ran had only dispelled the thick smoke upstairs, but the smoke was still lingering downstairs.
Waving his sword to disperse the thick smoke again, Lin Ran realized that a few furnaces had already been lit. However, because there were too many cracks on the furnaces, the smoke had already gushed out of the cracks before it could enter the flue.
Beside the furnace was a pile of mud mixed with hay. It looked like it was used to repair cracks.
Lin Ran pursed his lips and hesitated for a moment. In the end, he sighed and rolled up his sleeves to repair the furnace. This job was simple. He just had to apply the mud on the crack.
As the cracks on the furnace decreased, the surrounding thick smoke slowly faded.
Soon, Lin Ran patched up the last crack and was about to disperse the remaining smoke when he turned around and saw Ye Jin and Ye Shixiao standing on the stairs. They looked like they had been standing there for a long time.
Realizing that he seemed to have been taken advantage of, Lin Ran’s expression turned ugly. “Are you using me as free labor?”
Ye Jin covered her mouth and chuckled, but Ye Shixiao said with a nonchalant expression, “I’m going to reforge a sword for you anyway. What’s wrong with letting you do some work?”
Lin Ran couldn’t be bothered to waste his breath. He changed the topic and asked, “So you’re willing to help me?”
“I’m not helping you. I’m helping Jin.”
Ye Shixiao corrected him with a cold expression, “Jin said that she took your money. Our Ye family will never take anything from others for nothing!”
Lin Ran thought to himself, “Then why don’t you just return the money?” However, he nodded and said, “First of all, thank you very much for being willing to help me, but I still have to ask you a few questions.”
Ye Shixiao nodded. Lin Ran went straight to the point and asked, “Is the material you asked us to find on Mount Xianyong the material Ye Jin’s necklace is made of?”
Lin Ran asked again, “Is it the same material as the Ten Miles Dragon Roar?”
“No, it… Hiss!”
While Ye Shixiao was shaking his head, he accidentally pulled the wound on his face. He immediately gasped in pain.
After a few seconds, Ye Shixiao continued, “That material is called Heavenly Iron. It’s even tougher than the material of your broken sword. After reforging it with Heavenly Iron, the quality and power of your sword will rise to another level.”
As soon as Lin Ran said that, Ye Shixiao replied as if he had expected it, “Don’t worry, I’m just reforging the sword. It won’t affect the array formation in your sword.”
“As expected of a master!”
Lin Ran raised his eyebrows in surprise. “You can even tell that there’s an array formation in the sword?”
“Cut the crap. What else do you want to ask?”
Ye Shixiao waved his hand impatiently. “If not, get out. Don’t disturb my work!”
Lin Ran opened his mouth and was about to speak when he suddenly heard hurried footsteps outside. Then, more than ten men in black rushed in with sabers!
