OMF V5C17 Keeping His Distance?

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>

Yuchi Bing Xia stared at his youngest disciple that he had been proudest of since the day he took him in. He could only shake his head.
“Didn’t I tell you? How could you …” He sighed and rubbed his brow. What use was there in saying anything? It was already too late by now. It was obvious that Yu Jin wasn’t able to control himself in the face of the beautiful god. Ah, just thinking back to how he had looked at him … Honestly, couldn’t he have at least tried to hide his desire? Well, he couldn’t change it anymore.
Yuchi Bing Xia sighed again and patted his disciple’s shoulder. “Don’t worry too much about it. A person like him certainly knows how beautiful he is and what kind of effect he has on people. He wouldn’t bear a grudge.”
“Mn.” Leng Jin Yu just murmured without really listening.
That man, Jinde, just who was he? And why … Honestly, now that he didn’t stand in front of him he also understood that everything he had said must be utter nonsense. What afraid of other people? If he was the hidden expert of the Yun Zou Sect, then there shouldn’t be such a thing! Why would he need someone else to take care of him? And a disciple no less?
But what reason would he have to lie? Why should he want to make him stay together with him? It couldn’t be that he had also fallen in love at first sight, could it?
Leng Jin Yu paused. Also? He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. Was this karma? Because he had previously thought that maybe his Master would fall in love at first sight he had been made to experience just that? But why did he feel that Jinde was so familiar then?
“Master …”
“Yes?” Yuchi Bing Xia perked up. His disciple was finally reacting again! This was a good sign. Maybe the next time he wouldn’t embarrass himself as much in front of the beautiful god?
“What he said about the special dimension and people who can’t be allowed to find him …” He didn’t finish his sentence. After all, he also knew it was idiotic to ask. Wasn’t it obvious that it had been a lie?
Yuchi Bing Xia looked back at the house. “I don’t know much about that. In fact, I’ve only seen him a few times. The one who interacted with him the most is certainly Grandmaster Zhangsun so you’d need to ask him if you want to know more.”
“So you don’t know if it’s true or not?”
The Sect Master looked at his disciple strangely. Why would he question the beautiful god’s words? “Well, I only know that somebody broke into the Yun Zou Sect when you had gone to get Grandmaster Zhangsun’s disciple and his fiance from the Hei Dian Sect. That person somehow stumbled into the special dimension where the Grandmaster found him.
“By that time, that man had already fled and somehow settled down in your house. We had quite a bit of trouble to find him after he vanished. After that … I don’t know what happened but he asked to stay there. Naturally, we wouldn’t reject it if he asked for a favor. He is our sect’s greatest beneficiary.”
“I see.”
“Yu Jin, be that as it may, you have to find an excuse to get out of there. He might have been understanding of your behavior today but you should have noticed that you are unable to control yourself when he is around. It can’t go on like this. You would disgrace yourself sooner or later. You can’t want that.”
Leng Jin Yu looked up at the sky. Ah, how had it come so far? He, the person who had never fallen in love, not even when he entered the Nine Heavens that was rumored to be full of beauties was actually being lectured because his Master feared he would disgrace himself in front of this hidden expert. Was he really unable to control himself when Jinde was around?
Leng Jin Yu gulped. Alright. Just thinking back to how he had grabbed Jinde’s hands and promised to take care of him was probably answer enough. Yes, he wasn’t himself when that man was around. He lost all reason.
“I’ll try to think of something.” He promised as such but inwardly he didn’t want to. Even though he understood that this was dangerous and that it might be better to keep his distance from him, he wanted to stay close to him and do exactly what he had promised him: To be at his side and protect him from whoever dared to disturb his peace. He deeply felt that that was what he should do.
Yuchi Bing Xia had no idea what his disciple was thinking so he was gratified that Yu Jin was so understanding. “Alright, then you take some time and clear your head. If you need help, I’ll be in my study. You can just come over and ask if you feel you can’t figure it out alone or are unable to confront him by yourself.”
Leng Jin Yu nodded and watched his Master leave. As soon as his figure had vanished his gaze returned to the house where he had lived and his feet carried him closer. He forcibly stopped himself when he noticed what he was doing.
No! He couldn’t give in! His Master might not be right that he definitely had to keep his distance from Jinde but he shouldn’t get too close to him for now. First, he had to figure out some things. Mn, taking a stroll to clear his mind wasn’t a bad idea.
Unfortunately for him, he wasn’t the only person outside and the list of people who didn’t like him seemed to be getting longer.
