OMF V5C13 He Was Too Young

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>

Leng Jin Yu smiled wryly. “Master, could you not look at me like that? It was a long time. Can’t I be happy that I was able to return?”
“Uh … sure … sure you can.” Yuchi Bing Xia tried to pour himself a cup of tea but the only thing he managed to achieve was that his sleeve got wet. Ah. His disciple was behaving too shockingly!
Leng Jin Yu sighed, took the teapot out of his Master’s hands and poured the cup for him. “Being trapped in there, not knowing whether I’ll be able to return or not … it made me see a lot of things differently. What I thought of as important before suddenly had no meaning to it anymore while things I had considered normal or taken for granted seemed much more important.”
“Well, it’s good you could learn something from it. It’s even better you were able to return already. I was afraid you …” He shook his head and sighed.
Leng Jin Yu nodded. “Mn, I’m back.” And the things he had learned or maybe the one thing he had learned … he wouldn’t postpone it any longer. As soon as he had greeted his Master and found that Senior Xin he would find out more about the person missing from his memories and then he would go and search for him.
Seeing the smile on Yu Jin’s lips Yuchi Bing Xia felt his heart ease. Ah, his disciple had come back. Not only that he seemed to be even stronger than before. Not only in regards to his cultivation but also in regards to his personality. Being tested like that … maybe it had really done him good.
Yuchi Bing Xia smiled. It seemed he wouldn’t have to worry any longer now. “Yu Jin, in the time in the secret realm, have you ever thought about what I said before? About succeeding me?”
Leng Jin Yu lowered his gaze onto his cup of tea and nodded. “I did. And … if it is still your wish, then I will do so.”
“Really?” Yuchi Bing Xia raised his brows. He certainly hadn’t expected that his disciple had already reconsidered the matter. “That’s good then. Although, I have to be honest with you. The Yun Zou Sect isn’t doing as good anymore. In fact, it’s doing quite bad. We can’t even be considered a first ranked sect anymore. Back then when that Zhong Jing Yi and you disappeared a lot of the other disciples got killed and Grandmaster Zhangsun’s disciple left to search for a way to get his fiance out of the secret realm. The only … talent we had left was that Qiguan Cheng Da.”
“Qiguan Cheng Da.” Leng Jin Yu’s eyes narrowed. He remembered that it had been Qiguan Cheng Da who stood next to Zhong Jing Yi when the spiritual disturbance occurred. Most likely, all of this was his doing.
Before he had been the one who pointed Qiguan Cheng Da in the direction of Zhong Jing Yi for the sake of the trial but now he had returned here for himself and the crown prince’s trial was more or less accomplished. Maybe it would be better to make sure that Qiguan Cheng Da wouldn’t do anything more from now on or the Yun Zou Sect might end up completely destroyed.
“Mn. So are you sure that you want to accept the position of Sect Master? Naturally, you don’t have to decide now and even if you do, you’re still young. You don’t have to take the seat immediately.”
Leng Jin Yu smiled. “Master, whether the sect is doing good now or not is not important. The important thing is that we’ll work together to improve the sect’s situation in the future. If I reconsidered this decision just because the sect is ranked differently now, then I wouldn’t be fit to be the Sect Master in the first place.”
Yuchi Bing Xia nodded. “Alright. Then it’s set. You’ll succeed me. From now on I’ll slowly let you get acquainted with everything you need to know.”
“Mn. Thank you for your guidance, Master.”
“Don’t mention it. It’s for our sect too.” Yuchi Bing Xia drank his tea, his thoughts circling around all the things he needed to teach Yu Jin from now on.
Leng Jin Yu smiled when he saw his Master like this. He really loved the Yun Zou Sect very much. “Master, if there’s nothing else, I’ll return to my house for now.”
“Mn, returning home is —” Yuchi Bing Xia stopped and his eyes went wide. Right! Yu Jin’s house! How could he have forgotten about it?! There was still a beautiful god residing inside right now!
Yuchi Bing Xia leaped to his feet and hurried to the other side of the table, pulling Leng Jin Yu to his feet. “Yu Jin, before that there is one thing I have to tell you. No, there are a few things I have to say. Ah, I don’t even know where to begin with this …”
“Don’t worry, Master. Just tell me from the beginning. I’m sure I’ll be able to cope.”
“Mn. Yes.” Yuchi Bing Xia looked at his disciple. He wasn’t too worried although … “Yu Jin, say, have you ever been in love?”
“I thought so.” Yuchi Bing Xia sighed. “Well, the thing is that there is a kind of … hidden expert in our sect. The only ones who know about this are Grandmaster Zhangsun and me or, well, the previous Sect Masters. Since you’re going to succeed me you should also know about him.”
“I’m afraid I don’t understand.” What did this have to do with whether he had ever been in love?
Yuchi Bing Xia patted his hand with a pitying expression. “He was originally living in a special dimension at the foot of the Grandmaster’s peak but there was some kind of accident so … he moved into your house.”
“Oh. I wouldn’t mind moving somewhere else.”
“Ah, that’s not it. I guess he’d also like to return to his own place. It’s just … I’d like for you to meet him first.”
Leng Jin Yu nodded. “Then … let’s go over now? Or … announce ourselves to him?”
Yuchi Bing Xia patted his disciple’s hands again. “Going over right now isn’t the problem. It’s just … you’re still so young. I’m afraid you won’t be able to take it.”
“Is he … especially powerful?” Leng Jin Yu didn’t think much of it. He had ascended already. Regardless of how strong that person was, he wouldn’t mind.
Yuchi Bing Xia’s expression got only worse. “That too but the real problem is … He’s especially beautiful. Even I think it hurts to look at him directly. You have to promise me that you will keep your calm. Falling in love with a person such as that … It won’t lead anywhere.”
Leng Jin Yu had trouble keeping a straight expression but he forced himself to nod as earnestly as he could. “Don’t worry, Master. I certainly won’t be that easily impressed by someone’s outer appearance.”
Yuchi Bing Xia sighed. His disciple was too young. He was unable to imagine just how beautiful the person in question was. Ah, he could only hope this wouldn’t end in embarrassment.
Seeing the expression of his Master Leng Jin Yu’s lips twitched. As if he would fall in love at first sight just like that. He had lived for so long and never fallen in love. He was sure that nobody but that person missing from his memories would be able to move his heart.
Well, he would soon find out just how right he was with that thought.
