I don’t think I have trouble staying committed but I do admit that I have trouble not getting involved in new things. 😅 Anyway, I have yet another story to announce: Finders Keepers!
This is what the story is about:
Warrior Hou Dong has had it. One more word from these bloody merchants and he and his men will ditch them in the desert. First, providing him with inaccurate information and now trying to snatch the beauty he found? Tch, they can keep their money to themselves! This treasure is worth far more than the measly remuneration they promised.
Before I start rambling again, let me just get to the most important point: I’ll start posting on August 3rd (so next Saturday) on Patreon and there’ll be a new chapter every Saturday. Please keep in mind that this is not a novel but a short story/novella instead so there’ll only be a few chapters. 😊
Xin Lan stared at the gate and furrowed his brows. Was this guy mocking him? Why wasn’t he coming out? He thought about calling out to him once again but thinking of that stupid face he couldn’t bring himself to do so.
Obviously, Tian was just playing with him. He didn’t intend to come out. He could but he didn’t want to. He was basically trying to say that he was the owner of this place and could do whatever he fucking wanted. And most likely, he was also trying to make the point that he didn’t welcome him as a guest.
Xin Lan sighed. He didn’t have time to play with Tian. Even though he had only promised Xiang Yu to accompany him on the trial because of his Master, he would take this promise seriously now that he had made it. He was a man of his word. So he had to find out just where that fallen god had gone for his trial and he also had to make sure that he found out before Jin Ling noticed anything. He definitely didn’t want any demon to mess with that child. Continue reading
Xin Lan continued forward, flying further and further to the north, up the mountain, resisting the cold and icy wind, not caring about the fact that every bit of life was slowly left behind.
Jin Ling tried to keep up with him for a while but finally couldn’t take it any longer when he had reached halfway up the mountain. He cursed and hovered there for a moment longer but in the end, he couldn’t go further. Ah, maybe this wouldn’t have been impossible if he hadn’t searched around in the Yun Zou Sect. Maybe, he could’ve gone just a little bit further. Maybe Jinde was up there somewhere, waiting to see him. Maybe right now, he was giving up his last chance to find him. Continue reading
Jing He stood up to greet his two visitors. His heart couldn’t help but palpitate though. Someone of the dragon race … Did this have to do with what Longjun had said the previous day?
Qiang Yan took one look at his nephew and knew that he was still nervous. Ah, he could only hope this An Bai would continue to be as empathic as he had seemed until now. Well, he would just stay around for a while to make sure those two got along.
“Jing He.” Qiang Yan went over and took a closer look at his nephew. Normally, he always pretended to be more distant in front of others but screw it. If his nephew really married the dragon king in the future, it was better to let them know upfront that his uncle was the God of War. Hmph, they better don’t try to bully his nephew! “Ah, my dear nephew, I went to the dragon realm yesterday and had the good luck to meet scholar An Bai. We talked for a while and I felt that he was a very knowledgeable person and that the two of you would get along well. So I invited him over.” Continue reading
Jin Ling watched him, hesitating on what to do himself. Should he follow him? Maybe Xin Lan would go where Jinde was at the moment. But what if this was just a ploy? What if Jinde really was still in the Yun Zou Sect and was just waiting for the moment he followed Xin Lan to move to another place? So if he followed him, he might lose out on his only chance to find Jinde.
He looked around, trying to find out where Qiu Ling was. If Jinde was here and wanted to leave, then he would likely use that bastard’s help, wouldn’t he? So where was Qiu Ling?
He didn’t need to look around for long. Qiu Ling was sitting under a tree outside, his beloved next to him. Just now, he pulled him into his arms and happily hugged him. Continue reading
Leng Jin Yu left the dragon realm and only stopped when he had reached the human realm. This place was still quite a bit off from the Yun Zou Sect but he didn’t continue. He furrowed his brows and his gaze slipped to the side.
He might not be a trueborn god but he had lived for a long time in the human realm, experiencing the life in the cultivation world. Not trusting people blindly had been a habit he had formed over a long time. There were just too many instances where somebody you thought of as a friend would stab you in the back. Even if they didn’t, some secrets just couldn’t be divulged. And right now, even though he couldn’t see the person, he knew that somebody was following him. This certainly wasn’t the moment to hurry back to the Yun Zou Sect. Then now what? Continue reading
In the dragon realm, Leng Jin Yu sighed deeply. “I never would have thought I’d say this but it seems there are actually people in the dragon realm that are harder to deal with than their king.”
Xiang Yong’s eyes narrowed. “Oh? It’s certainly the first time I’ve heard something like this. Even we dragons don’t always think that it is easy to get along with His Majesty.”
Leng Jin Yu smiled. “I never said it was easy. You’re just making things much more difficult for me. Is it really so important why your king trusts me?” Continue reading
Mei Chao Bing carefully guided his little bunny in forming the contract with … well, the other little bunny. In fact, this matter of signing a contract wasn’t too complicated. In short, the cultivator only had to use their spiritual energy and leave a mark of the spiritual beast’s head. This type of beast had already formed a spiritual awareness that would be able to accept the mark if they wanted to form a contract. If the mark was rejected, then no matter how much the cultivator tried, they wouldn’t be able to sign the contract successfully. But if it was accepted, then they would be bound together from now.
The only difficult part about this was to show Yun Bei Fen how to use the spiritual energy to leave the mark. For him who had only learned how to use this energy for anything else than taking it in and cultivating in the last few days, this was difficult. Naturally, he wasn’t able to do it immediately. Continue reading
Hua Min leaned against the door and took a deep breath. Ah, he was already this old but he still wasn’t immune to such charm. He shook his head and then went to see which room he could give this guest. Never mind that this man seemed amicable, that was still the person that had managed to marry Grandmaster Leng. Even if he himself wasn’t at the height of his power because of some previous injury, this was still a force to be reckoned with. He definitely couldn’t be slighted while he stayed at their Liu He Alliance.
In the end, Hua Min remembered that there was a room intended for the Elders of other sects if they were invited over to work on a joint project. The room was much more spacious than that of a disciple and included everything that a person with a high cultivation stage might want: There were shelves with a wide variety of manuals, a room that could be used for the refinement of pills and a courtyard that was strengthened with several arrays so that even somebody of the fourth or fifth stage could train their cultivation or sword arts without having to worry about destroying anything. This kind of room should satisfy this guest, shouldn’t it? Continue reading
At the same time, Alliance Head Hua of the Liu He Alliance gulped and shifted his gaze away from Jinde’s face to the carved seal on his desk. He picked the thing up and twirled it in his hands, trying to gather his thoughts.
Jinde merely gave a charming smile and threw the hat to the side. Finally being able to take this veil off felt good. He really wasn’t a person that liked hiding his appearance. Ah, he had probably been told a few times too often that he was a beauty when he was young. What could he do? He just liked to show off. He crossed his legs and leaned back. “I guess Alliance Head Hua has to be quite surprised.”
Hua Min raised his brows. “That’s … I guess it would sound insincere if I denied it, wouldn’t it?” He put the seal down with a thud and finally looked up again. It really was too shameful not to even be able to look at this person. This was a married man. The person he was married to was even an old friend of his Master. This was basically a member of an older generation! Mn, this definitely wasn’t a beautiful young man. He might look like it but he wasn’t. Continue reading
Mei Chao Bing quietly walked through the valley with his little bunny still wrapped around his arm. He wasn’t in a hurry at all. Whether the Elders expected them to turn up in the border region soon or not, why should he care about that? Hadn’t Sect Master Zhang told him to pay special attention to Yun Bei Fen? Well, he was doing exactly that. Nobody could say he hadn’t done what he was supposed to do. So why shouldn’t he let Yun Bei Fen take a good look around and slowly choose a spiritual beast that he liked? He shouldn’t have to choose the first thing they came across.
Just when he thought so Yun Bei Fen suddenly stopped in his tracks before he excitedly tugged at Mei Chao Bing’s arm. “Over there! Look over there!” Before Mei Chao Bing had the time to really look ‘over there’, Yun Bei Fen let go of his arm and madly dashed over, crouching down next to the roots of a tree. Continue reading
