Aspiring to the Immortal Path Chapter 27: A New Rival

Translated by: Hypersheep325

Ji Ziqian stood in the hall, bowing to Zheng Shufeng. "Ziqian pays respects to my maternal aunt!"

Seated on the raised platform, Zheng Shufeng inspected Ji Ziqian. She saw that this was a delicate youth who appeared well-learned and polite. Satisfied, she softly asked, "How old are you now?"

"Thirteen, born in the same year as Chong'er and two months older than Chong'er. Sister-in-law, how could you forget?" The one who spoke was a middle-aged woman seated next to Zheng Shufeng. She was elegantly and luxuriously dressed, but she seemed lacking compared to Zheng Shufeng.

Her name was Wei Lanxin, and she was Wei Danbai's younger sister who had been married out.

Zheng Shufeng slapped her forehead. "Oh my! I'm getting old, so my memory isn't what it used to be. Ziqian, it has been a long time since you last came to our home, yes?"

"Two years and four months," Ji Ziqian answered.

"Oh, you remember the day so well," the lady said with a smile.

"Ziqian has always yearned to enter the Wei Clan, but the distance of my home makes visiting inconvenient. I naturally remembered my one visit."

"You're a child that knows how to speak." The lady nodded in satisfaction. She turned to Wei Lanxin. "This child doesn't seem bad."

"If you think he's not bad, then there's a chance?" Wei Lanxin smiled.

Zheng Shufeng was in no rush, casually saying, "But Ziqian is still a child of the Ji Clan. Wouldn't it be wronging him too much to make him a servant student of Chong'er?"

"No, no!" Wei Lanxin waved her hand. "Ziqian is blessed to be able to enter the Wei Clan. It's an opportunity that you can't get even if you beg for it. We don't seek anything else. My clan will pay for everything else. All we need is the spot."

"How could that do?" The lady was not happy to hear this, frowning and saying, "Since he will be a servant student, the Wei Clan will naturally pay for the expenses. How could it be reasonable for your clan to pay?"

Ji Ziqian hastily said, "If maternal aunt's support can allow me into the academy, Ziqian will be deeply grateful and will repay you until my body crumbles!"

"These are heavy words," the lady said. "We are all family, so what need is there to repay until the body crumbles? Sit, sit. There's no need to be so polite. In a little while, I will take you to see the venerable master. For this matter, his venerable self's approval is needed…"

Standing in the flowerbed, Tang Jie sternly asked, "So the lady has already agreed?"

Translator Notes

It seems like Tang Jie has a way to deal with this young master trying to steal his spot! Though it seems like Ji Ziqian will already have a tough time.
