OMF V5C73 Let’s Talk About It

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>

Leng Jin Yu looked at his dejected figure and closed his eyes. Just what had happened? Why had Zhong Jing Yi done that? He turned back and found that neither Qiu Ling nor Jing Yi had moved while the crowd around them was spiritedly discussing what was happening.
Leng Jin Yu sighed and went back. He stopped in front of Jing Yi who looked up at him with an apologetic expression.
“I … I’m sorry. I didn’t know …” He clenched his fists and looked down. He had only thought about Qiu Ling and how he could make sure that nothing would happen to him. He had never even considered Yu Jin’s side of things. After all, Yu Jin had said that he didn’t know about the person he seemed to remember. He never would have thought that Yu Jin might have found that person in the short time since their return.
“It’s alright. I’ll explain to him later. I’m sure he’ll understand.” Well, he could only hope Jinde would. Actually, looking at how he had left, Leng Jin Yu wasn’t too sure if Jinde would really understand. After all, things had happened in their past lives. Something like this kiss he had had to watch would inevitably rip those old wounds open again.
“Junior martial brother Zhong, I think that … we should have a talk. The three of us should. Because I think that there are a lot of misunderstandings that need to be unraveled. Here is hardly the place though. How about the two of you calm down a bit on your own while I go and talk to that person? After that, we can meet up again and talk things through.”
Jing Yi lowered his head. He could imagine what Yu Jin wanted to talk about. He knew about Tian so he probably wanted to clear this up so he wouldn’t get drawn into this any further. Well, it was understandable. If Yu Jin had found his special person, then he couldn’t let him suffer for his own selfish reasons. He couldn’t let Qiu Ling be hurt in a fight against Tian though.
Jing Yi considered and finally cupped his fists and bowed. “I understand, senior martial brother Yu. There already is somebody you love. I don’t expect anything from you, don’t worry. I can’t change my feelings but I will give up on you and just stay alone for the rest of my life.”
“No, what …” Leng Jin Yu frowned. “I said it’s a misunderstanding and we should talk about it!”
“There’s no need for that. I already understand.” Jing Yi turned around and stopped in front of Qiu Ling again. “Qiu Ling, please don’t make things difficult for senior martial brother Yu. You’ve heard it already. He doesn’t like me. It’s all one-sided affection on my part so just let him be happy with the person he likes. As for us … It won’t change anything. I can’t be with anyone but the person I love.” He took a deep breath. “Right. We were supposed to go on a mission together but I know the situation isn’t right for that. Please don’t bother with it. I’ll just go and finish the mission on my own. It’s also what I owe the sect. Farewell.” He cupped his hands in front of him too and turned away.
He didn’t go to see Xiao Dong and Shao Hai as he had originally planned and just left the sect grounds directly. He already had the list of materials for the array and he knew of the places where he could find some of them. He would get those first and bring them back to the sect before he tried to find out where the others were. Ah, maybe things would already be different by the time he came back.
Qiu Ling watched Jing Yi leave and stealthily touched his chest. It still hurt since the moment Jing Yi had kissed Leng Jin Yu. Was this the pain of losing your lover? Then … what would happen now? His beloved seemed intent on breaking up with him. According to the curse of the dragons …
Leng Jin Yu sighed when Jing Yi left. There obviously wasn’t any use in trying to persuade him. He didn’t understand why Jing Yi would pretend to be in love with him in front of Longjun but it was obvious he didn’t want to stop doing so. In that case, he could only try and convince Longjun to listen to him. As long as he knew about the misunderstanding that had occurred, he could do something about it and everything would get back on track.
Leng Jin Yu walked over to him and lowered his voice. “Longjun, there is something we should talk about.”
“Leave me alone.” Ah, he couldn’t believe his own father had made his beloved split up with him. This was too vicious! Had that guy no morals at all?! Qiu Ling turned to glare at him. “You’re a bad parent!”
Leng Jin Yu touched his brow. He didn’t even want to try and understand what he meant with that. “Longjun, I’m serious here. Didn’t you want information from me? Well, I’m willing to tell you. You’ve also seen how Jinde reacted. I’m in love with him. I wouldn’t want him to misunderstand. So I have no reason whatsoever to hinder you in your relationship with the Son of Heaven, do I?”
“Well … the old geezer said it himself. You cheated on him once already.”
Leng Jin Yu frowned. “Could we leave my past life out of this? Please follow me. I’d like to explain to both Jinde and you.”
Qiu Ling looked at the place where Jing Yi had vanished once again and sighed. “Ah, well, I guess it wouldn’t change anything. My beloved doesn’t want to see me right now.”
“He will soon. So please follow me.” Leng Jin Yu motioned to the house where he was living with Jinde and hurried over. Ah, he had to clear this up as soon as possible. He definitely couldn’t allow Jinde to misunderstand any longer.
