OMF V5C11 Everyone Has Their Own Fate

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>

The Heavenly Emperor and the Heavenly Empress exchanged a glance. It couldn’t be that the person who had come to report had seen Senior Xin, could it?
Bai Fen leaped to her feet and hurried over, grasping Leng Jin Yu’s hands. “The two men with him … Had one of them white hair and wore a mask covering half his face?”
Leng Jin Yu looked at the hands of the Heavenly Empress before lifting his gaze. “Yes. There was.”
“That’s him!” Bai Fen tightened her grab on Leng Jin Yu. “Then do you know where he is now?”
Leng Jin Yu thought back to how that man had looked at him. This hate … But he had still sounded as if he definitely had to return to the Yun Zou Sect. Why? Well, at least he was sure about the answer to the Heavenly Empress’ question. “He should still be at that place. I can go and notify him that you wish to see him. I’m just not sure … He didn’t seem very amicable. I wouldn’t be sure that he agrees to help.”
Bai Fen gave a relieved sigh. “Don’t worry about that. If rumors are true, Senior Xin has always looked a little grumpy. If he knows that this is about our crown prince, he would certainly help. So, please, go and talk to him, yes?”
Leng Jin Yu nodded and turned to the God of War, unobtrusively extricating his hands from the grip of the Heavenly Empress. “In that case, I should go as soon as possible. May I have a word with the God of War before that?” He cupped his fists and took a deep breath.
He was doing the right thing. If he returned to the Nine Heavens after delivering the message, he would always regret it. He would always ask himself what he would have remembered had he stayed in the Yun Zou Sect longer. He would always wonder if that person and he … could have had a future together that he had destroyed with his own decision.
Qiang Yan observed Leng Jin Yu’s expression. The young man had always seemed serious but today … He felt like he was even more resolute than normal. “Mn. Then I’ll take my leave too.” Qiang Yan nodded at his brother-in-law and smiled at his sister and went outside with Leng Jin Yu.
The two of them slowly walked down the steps and followed the road away from the Heavenly Emperor’s palace. Neither of them said a word.
Only when they had already reached the next palaces did Qiang Yan clear his throat. “This isn’t just about returning to the mortal realm?”
Leng Jin Yu stopped walking and turned to the God of War. He cupped his fists again and bowed. “It is about returning to the mortal realm. It’s just … when I return this time I’m afraid I won’t be coming back.”
Qiang Yan raised his brows. “Not coming back? What do you mean by that?”
Leng Jin Yu straightened up and sighed. “I was originally mortal and now I feel that the mortal realm might be the place where I should stay.”
“Didn’t you want to become part of my palace before?” Qiang Yan scratched his head. How had this happened? He had found an excellent addition to his palace and now the person told him he didn’t want to join him anymore. Maybe he shouldn’t have sent him to the mortal realm? Just what was so good about it that Leng Jin Yu would rather stay there?
Leng Jin Yu lowered his head. “I know this is sudden. Originally, after I ascended, I thought that the God of War’s palace would be the place where I belong. But now I think I might have erred. When I went to the mortal realm to assist His Highness I …” He stopped talking. Just what was he supposed to say? He felt like whatever he said it wouldn’t be able to express his feelings.
Qiang Yan sighed. “You don’t have to explain. It’s a pity though. I think you might have liked it in my palace.”
“Mn.” Leng Jin Yu nodded. “I think so too. But … everyone has their own fate. Having followed the crown prince for so long I know that when I was mortal someone in the Scribe’s Palace probably wrote mine but now it’s different. My fate is truly my own fate now. And I feel that … it should take place in the mortal realm.”
“I see. Well, then … go and follow your fate. Should you return to the Nine Heavens in the future and think that the God of War’s palace might be a place for you then, you can still come by. It’s not like much changes here anyway. At least not when you spend a few years in the mortal realm.”
Leng Jin Yu nodded. “Then I’ll take my leave now. I can’t promise I’ll be able to find him right away. I’ve only seen him twice so far and I don’t know where exactly he will be. I don’t think it will take longer than a few days though.” After all, that man seemed to hate him with a passion even though he had no idea why. He would probably meet him again soon.
“Don’t think too much about it. In fact, it’s good if he’s really in the mortal realm. You don’t have to bring him here. Just tell him what happened and ask him if he would be willing to have a look at Jing He’s soul to make sure nothing went wrong when he used the soul-engraving dagger.”
Leng Jin Yu frowned. “I’m afraid I don’t understand the situation too well. Will it really be alright if I try to explain?”
Qiang Yan nodded. “Yes. Just tell him that Jing He used the soul-engraving dagger and that we ask him to make sure if everything is still alright with him. He will understand everything from that.”
Leng Jin Yu wasn’t sure if it would really work but the God of War should know that man better. “Alright. Then I’ll go now.” He cupped his fists again, turned around and left.
Actually, he couldn’t wait to return to the Yun Zou Sect.
