OMF V5C46 Giving Him Face

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>

Yuchi Bing Xia gaped. Had he … Had he just said that he didn’t need to thank him? After destroying their array? That array?!
Jing Yi paled when he saw the Sect Master’s expression. He grabbed Qiu Ling’s arm and pulled him down with him as he bowed. “We know our fault, Sect Master! We know this can’t be undone. We’ll accept our punishment!”
Yuchi Bing Xia raised his brows. At least this young man still knew how to react appropriately. Well, he probably should have knelt down instead of just bowing considering just how great this kind of offense was.
Jing Yi also knew this but what use was there if he knelt down and Qiu Ling just continued to stand beside him? Then the Sect Master might get even angrier. No, he had to apologize first and then somehow give Qiu Ling a hint.
He furrowed his brows and tugged at Qiu Ling’s sleeve, lowering himself slowly. This should be pretty obvious, shouldn’t it? Certainly, Qiu Ling would —
“My love!” Qiu Ling turned around and grabbed him by the waist. “What’s with you? Aren’t you feeling well? Do you want to sit down? Lie down? Should I bring you back to your room? No, do you want me to bring you to a room here in the inner sect? I can fly you over immediately!”
He wanted to pick him up but Jing Yi hurriedly evaded.
Forget it! Qiu Ling was a hopeless case. He would just kneel down himself. Maybe Qiu Ling would understand then. Jing Yi grabbed his robe and knelt down. “Asking the Sect Master to mete out punishment!”
Qiu Ling looked at Jing Yi and then turned to look at the Sect Master incredulously. Mete out punishment? This guy should better not dare to punish his beloved!
Yuchi Bing Xia grimaced. Why was this Qiu Ling looking at him like this? He wasn’t the one who had destroyed something! Yuchi Bing Xia tightened his lips. He wanted to scold him harshly. As the Sect Master shouldn’t he be able to yell ‘Still not kneeling down and begging for forgiveness?’ or something along those lines? But why was everything he could think when seeing him ‘first talent of the Yun Zou Sect, don’t aggravate’?
Argh, being the Sect Master was such a shitty job! He should go and look how Yu Jin was getting along with the beautiful god after this. If everything was alright, he should speed up the process of making him the new Sect Master.
Yuchi Bing Xia sighed and waved the matter aside. “It’s alright. Let’s not talk about this any longer.” But don’t think I won’t go and complain to your Master! The costs for repairing that array will definitely come out of Grandmaster Zhangsun’s pocket!
Jing Yi lifted his head and stared at him dumbly. Had that really just happened? They had destroyed the property of the sect but hadn’t been held responsible? Just what was happening here? He looked at Qiu Ling in confusion and got a splendid smile in return.
“My love, why don’t you get up?” Qiu Ling grabbed his arm and pulled him to his feet. “Are you feeling better now?”
“Uh …” Jing Yi averted his gaze once more.
Yuchi Bing Xia coughed. He was already crying inside from having lost the second biggest, second most expensive array of their sect. Did they really need to display their affection in front of him? Especially since they were supposed to have broken up already?!
“So, in the end, why did you come here?”
“Oh, I don’t know.” Qiu Ling continued to look at Jing Yi. He hadn’t even thought to ask about this. He had just brought his beloved here since he wanted to go see the Sect Master. Now that that guy mentioned it … he was also curious. It couldn’t be that his beloved had come here to see that guy’s disciple, right? That senior martial brother Yu Jin?!
Qiu Ling frowned and hurriedly grabbed Jing Yi’s hands. “My love, if you’re here to see that Yu Jin, then let’s better go. Don’t you think I’m a much better catch then he? I even solved this problem of the sect just like that!”
Jing Yi’s brows twitched. Could Qiu Ling stop to relate everything to their relationship? And why was he still talking about that array? If one thought about it a little longer, then the Sect Master had probably just let them go to give Grandmaster Zhangsun face! Who knew if he wouldn’t reconsider if Qiu Ling mentioned the matter a few more times?
Jing Yi took his hands back and turned to the Sect Master. “I’m sorry for disturbing the Sect Master. It’s just that I wanted to bring back the things senior martial brother Qiu took for me. I do understand that I haven’t done enough to become an inner sect disciple just yet and I don’t want to get my status just because of … my relationship to senior martial brother Qiu.” He bowed again and offered the robe and the jade pendant.
Yuchi Bing Xia nodded. This youth wasn’t bad. If his aptitude was a bit better, he definitely wouldn’t have minded making him an inner sect disciple. But as things stood … most of it had really been because of the Grandmaster’s disciple. He couldn’t say that now though.
He took the jade pendant and turned it between his fingers, his expression darkening a little. “I guess this is my fault.”
Jing Yi tensed and looked up. What was the Sect Master saying there? Was this him admitting that he had indeed only made him an inner sect disciple because of Qiu Ling? And after the thing with the array, he now regretted it deeply?
Yuchi Bing Xia sighed and put the jade pendant back onto the robe. “I sent nobody to bring you over or explain anything to you so it’s expected that things might go wrong. You have to induce the jade pendant with your spiritual energy for it to work on the array.”
“Ah?” Why was he telling him this?
Yuchi Bing Xia smiled a little strained. “I probably can’t deny that a lot of your opportunities came from knowing the Grandmaster’s disciple. But that isn’t everything and luck plays an important role in cultivation. So just go and have Wu Min Huan assign you to a place here in the inner sect. You’re already an inner sect disciple of our Yun Zou Sect. Nothing will change about that.”
