OMF V5C3 The One to Hold His Love

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>

Jing Yi wasn’t the only one who couldn’t walk away from his problems this easily. Leng Jin Yu had also met with some trouble. He only managed to soar into the air and distance himself a few hundred meters from the Yun Zou Sect when someone appeared in his path.
Leng Jin Yu stopped and his brows drew together. The man in front of him had long, silvery-white hair and half of his face was covered by a mask. This was the same person that had already reacted to him so strongly at the Leyuan region.
“What may I do for you?”
Xin Lan narrowed his eyes. “Where do you intend to go?”
Leng Jin Yu inclined his head. “May I know how that concerns you?”
Xin Lan didn’t answer but he clenched his fists and the winds around him picked up, making the strands of his hair dance and the sleeves of his robe flap. “I want you to turn back.”
Leng Jin Yu paused. This wasn’t right. He didn’t know this person but the other obviously hated him. Had something happened while he was in the secret realm? Or … He thought back to the moment he came back.
He had attacked the sky of the secret realm since he hoped that the distance from the dimension of the realm to the Leyuan region would be closer there. He didn’t know if it had actually worked but the next moment, they had fallen through empty space. Without knowing what was happening, he had held onto Jing Yi as tightly as he could. That was also how they had finally arrived at the Leyuan region.
This person, he wasn’t mortal and he had never heard of him in the Nine Heavens. So most likely …
“If I didn’t get it wrong, you were with Longjun so you should be part of the dragon race. You probably didn’t like seeing me with your king’s beloved.”
Xin Lan snorted. He didn’t care about that boy’s beloved at all. Whoever it was this man took a liking to he wouldn’t accept it. This man had dared to betray his master once. He wouldn’t let him do it again!
Seeing that the other person didn’t react at all Leng Jin Yu tried to explain further. “If Longjun brought you with him to that place, you should know about the matters regarding the Son of Heaven. Maybe you have heard that the gods sent someone to help him with achieving his trials? That person is me.”
He cupped his fists and bowed. “I’m called Leng Jin Yu. I was originally a cultivator and ascended as a deity some years ago. Since His Highness intended to join a deity sect the Fate’s Scribe and the God of War decided to send me as help.
“Back when that accident occurred I couldn’t judge accurately just how much damage would be done. His Highness is currently living with a mortal body so even if he is heavily injured or even dies, it wouldn’t be too much of a problem. In fact, being injured might have been beneficial to his trial. But Longjun is a different matter. He might have died and then …”
He sighed. “I might not be part of the gods for long but I know that the dragons are our allies. I couldn’t have let anything happen to him. That was why I pushed him out of the way. I actually didn’t intend to be imprisoned with His Highness.
“Actually, I thought I’d be able to leave the realm immediately but it turned out that things weren’t as easy. Now, we managed to leave the secret realm so I have to go and report to the Fate’s Scribe and the God of War. So please, let me pass. I assure you that nothing is going on between me and His Highness. I’m just an ascended deity. I wouldn’t dare to presume anything.” He smiled but that seemed to be the wrong move.
The man opposite him actually gave off a faint killing intent, his arms shook in anger and the winds around him blew even fiercer. Leng Jin Yu frowned. Just what was this about? He had already explained this much but the man was still like that. Could it be that he had misjudged the situation?
Xin Lan took a deep breath and tried to calm down. He also knew that he was being unreasonable but it had just happened. He didn’t have himself under control. He had known that he would see this person again. Or, well, the one he had become now.
He looked vastly different from the arrogant Chun Yin he knew from the past and his way of speaking was also completely different. But one thing wouldn’t change: This was the person his master had chosen. This was the person that would forever prevent him from attaining his master’s favor.
Seeing this person and hearing how he actually admitted that he wasn’t suited to his master his heart couldn’t help but race. Yes! Yes, he wasn’t suited! He had never been! His master was beautiful, intelligent, his magic stronger than that of most dragons of this day and age. Someone like him should only have the best. The man at his side … should have been the strongest of their race.
And yes, back then Chun Yin had been the strongest of the dragons. He had been the one most gifted with the sword, the one famed in all three immortal realms. But there was still him! He might not have had fame but it was because he kept to himself and only did things for his master silently. If they had fought, he would have been able to kill Chun Yin in just a few moves! So why … why did his master still choose Chun Yin? Why hadn’t he … given him a chance?
Xin Lan closed his eyes and took another deep breath. There was no use in thinking like that. When Jinde took him in back then he had already been deeply in love with Chun Yin. And he was one of the dragons born after the curse. Falling in love once … there was no possibility of him falling in love ever again.
“You will come back after you reported?”
Leng Jin Yu nodded. “Yes. My task isn’t done yet.”
“Alright then. You may go. Don’t take too much time.” Xin Lan turned away.
Ah, there really was no use in getting angry at this man. In the end, he would still be the one who held his master’s love. There was nothing that could be done about that.
