OMF V6C36 I’ll Reward You Very Well

Jin Ling finally arrived at the end of his garden and folded the sack. He turned around to bring it back, only to come face to face with Qiu Ling. He raised his brows. “What? You’re still here?”
“Of course! You still didn’t tell me where my beloved is!”
“And I won’t.” Jin Ling stepped past him but stopped right afterward. “Well, I won’t tell you unless … you tell me where your predecessor is.”
“Why? You want to ask him whether he wants to become part of your harem? Forget about it! He always liked my father. He wouldn’t even take a second glance at you.”
Jin Ling curled his hands into fists but forced himself not to react to that insult. “Your father is dead though, isn’t he? Your mother killed him. So your predecessor …”
“So my predecessor would be heartbroken if he was still alive. Thankfully, your father killed him for good. There’s no way he’ll have to deal with the pain now.”
Jin Ling looked back at him. Maybe he should just attack him and end it here and now? Unfortunately, winning against this bastard wouldn’t be easy. Ah, he shouldn’t let this guy provoke him. He wasn’t worth his time.
He turned away and walked back to the adjacent room, throwing the sack down next to a heap of bodies. Mn, they should wage war more often. His plants would probably grow a lot after getting all this nutritious demon meat. It should be much better than the beast meat he normally gave them.
Behind him, Qiu Ling entered the room and looked around. Strange. His beloved wasn’t here either. But he clearly felt his mark somewhere around here. “Are there any other rooms?”
Jin Ling glanced at him and passed by him, returning to his throne room. It didn’t matter what Qiu Ling did. A demon would always be faster than a dragon. If he wanted to, he could appear in that room in the next second and drag the mortal boy out of there and in front of Qiu Ling. He wouldn’t do him the favor though. After all, he would be the one who would need to find a new place where he could keep the boy if Qiu Ling found that one. He couldn’t take a risk, after all. Not if this concerned whether or not he would see Jin Ling again.
Come to think of it … He took out the black crystal mirror and imbued his energy, establishing the connection to the part that Qiguan Cheng Da had right now. The other person didn’t seem happy though.
“Didn’t you say you want to come over? It’s been several months already!”
Jin Ling raised his brows. Oh? It seemed he had forgotten about the issue with the time. “I’m sorry. But you should have noticed that I already solved your problem. That Zhong Jing Yi and the Grandmaster’s disciple … aren’t they both gone?”
Qiguan Cheng Da narrowed his eyes. “Do you want me to believe that that was your doing?”
“You don’t have to believe it. It’s enough as long as you help me find out some things.”
“I already did but you didn’t give me anything in return.”
Jin Ling sighed. Humans were so despicable! Couldn’t this guy do something for him just out of the goodness of his heart? As a righteous cultivator, he should love that kind of thing, shouldn’t he? Jin Ling’s lips finally lifted in a charming smile. “And here I thought getting rid of Zhong Jing Yi was my gift to you. Well, if that isn’t enough, I guess I can send someone over to bring you a thing or two. What would you like?”
Qiguan Cheng Da snorted. “What should I want? I’m a cultivator. Give me something that can help me achieve a breakthrough with my cultivation.”
“Mn, alright. I’ll send someone. In the meantime …”
“I don’t think I want to do anything ‘in the meantime’. I’ve already given you information. As long as you don’t provide me with anything, I won’t continue to do anything for you either.”
Jin Ling sighed. “Ah, I see. Well, you can at least listen to what I have to say, can’t you? In case you notice something related to that, you can inform me after you got what you wanted. Naturally, I’ll reward you for that too.”
Qiguan Cheng Da pursed his lips. He wasn’t too sure he could trust this person but his demands weren’t over the top and his rewards were good. Listening wouldn’t take up too much of his time either. “Alright. What is it?”
“I’m looking for a person. A man, to be precise.”
“That could be difficult without knowing who exactly you mean. Don’t you have a name?”
Jin Ling chuckled. “Believe me, if you see him, you will know it’s him. He has golden hair.”
“Golden hair?” Qiguan Cheng Da narrowed his eyes. Hadn’t he seen someone like that in the inner sect? Or, no, not there …
Jin Ling raised his brows. “What? You already know who I mean? That was fast.”
“Is this person related to Zhong Jing Yi?”
Jin Ling leaned back and crossed his legs. “Well … You could probably say so.” After all, the boy was Qiu Ling’s fiance and Qiu Ling’s father … Jin Ling’s smile dimmed.
Qiguan Cheng Da was reassured though. “Then I did see him. I guess there’s no reason to hide it from you since it’s something this simple. Don’t think you can scam me out of my reward though.”
“Don’t worry. If what you say is accurate, I will definitely reward you very well.” After all, if he really got Jinde back, then he wouldn’t mind giving away all the treasures in the demon realm. “What do you know about him? Where is he now?”
