OMF V6C51 The Second Part of His Plan

Leng Jin Yu’s lips twitched. “I don’t think it works that way …”
Qiu Ling snorted. “What are you trying to say? That you wouldn’t have given the child you have with Jinde preferential treatment? You have to be kidding me! I am the proof of you cheating on him! You probably would have wanted to abandon me as soon as the two of you got married.”
“That’s not what I meant.”
Qiu Ling blinked. “You really think you could have treated us equally?”
“No … I mean, yes. But that’s not what I was talking about.”
Qiu Ling looked at him skeptically. This guy actually dared to pretend he wouldn’t have preferred his love child with Jinde over him! How dishonest could one get?
Leng Jin Yu felt like this conversation was draining his energy faster than any fight ever could. Just why was it so hard to communicate with this person? “I was talking about the possibility of having a child with him. We’re both men. How should that work out?”
Qiu Ling harrumphed. “Don’t take me for a fool! What does that have to do with being a man or not? If anything, your chances should be higher because of that. If a frail woman can give birth to a child, then why shouldn’t the old geezer be able to do so?” He paused and tilted his head. “Well, his age might be a problem now. Then again you’re quite young now …”
Leng Jin Yu rubbed his brow. Right. He had forgotten that this person hadn’t grown up in a normal family. He probably didn’t know too much about either marriage or children. Ah, somebody should advise him before he married the Son of Heaven.
Qiu Ling didn’t notice Leng Jin Yu’s reaction. Instead, he furrowed his brows. “Actually, even though that’s the case, I can’t deny that it still might have been better if you stayed with him. At the very least, it’s unlikely that you would have died. And then I wouldn’t have had to kill my mother and grow up on my own. And all the rest also wouldn’t have happened.” He shook his head. “Anyway, it’s already in the past now. Let’s not think about it any further. You know originally I planned all of this differently.”
Leng Jin Yu raised his brows. Planned? What was he talking about?
“Actually, I wanted to send Fu Min and Fu Heng here so they could inform you that I want you to inform Xin Lan that he should contact me. We definitely can’t expose the old geezer’s whereabouts to that bastard!”
Leng Jin Yu went back to rubbing his forehead. That ‘bastard’ should be the demon king, shouldn’t it?
“Now everything turned out differently. But I think it should still work so don’t worry too much. Seeing that you’re quite alright and that I can’t do anything about that fallen god either while we don’t know who he is, how about we already work on that other part of my plan?”
“There is another plan?”
“Of course! Didn’t I say I had an idea how to help the old geezer hide from that bastard for the rest of his life?”
“I suppose you did.”
“Mn. So we should start with that.”
“I thought you would only tell us about that after Xin Lan found out what you want.”
Qiu Ling looked at him as if he was an idiot. “Even if you were stupid and died early, you’re still my family. And the old geezer wasn’t bad to me. Since you’re married to him now, I should also help you out. Especially since Jin Ling will be really mad.” He grinned just thinking of it. Ah, he’d love to go and tell him what he had done afterward!
Leng Jin Yu shook his head. He had almost thought that Qiu Ling’s thoughts were rather touching but it turned out he just wanted to get back at the demon king. Well, he probably had still meant what he said before. “So what’s the plan?”
“Do you remember that secret realm you were imprisoned in with Jing He?”
“Mn.” How could he not? That was the place where Jing Yi had remembered parts of his past life because he hadn’t paid enough attention. He had also almost lost his life in there before he was able to meet Jinde. “What about it?”
“Well, it wasn’t possible to get out of there without the blood of the person who made the array, was it? So I thought why shouldn’t we make the exact opposite? We can just make an array where people can’t get in without the right blood! What do you think?”
Leng Jin Yu pondered. “That does sound like a good idea. But I couldn’t figure the array out. And inverting it would be even more difficult. Are you sure we can do this?”
Qiu Ling grinned and threw the twig aside. “We can’t but I know who can.”
Leng Jin Yu raised his brows. “Who?”
“My cousin-in-law! After all, he could also open the array for me and I’m sure he’ll help me to make a new one too. Then the old geezer can just hide in there and that bastard will never be able to get in.”
Leng Jin Yu nodded slowly. That made sense. He couldn’t help but wonder if it would be so easy though. “Are you sure he will help us?”
Qiu Ling snorted. “Please! That guy is my cousin-in-law. Naturally, he will help us. So how about it? We could go and ask him right now. Then you’ll know that I’m right.”
Leng Jin Yu sighed and nodded. “Alright. Let me tell Jinde though. He certainly wouldn’t like it if I left without a word.”
“Mn. Go, go. Don’t mind me.” Qiu Ling turned away and picked up his twig again, preparing for another long session of drawing his beloved’s portrait. Mn, it really was a pity that he couldn’t pick this drawing up and take it with him. His beloved looked too great even if he was just drawn into the sand.
