When Leng Jin Yu finally arrived in the Yun Zou Sect, he directly flew to Grandmaster Zhangsun’s peak. Never mind the transmission stone for now. Qiu Ling didn’t care about it too much and most likely, nobody would want to contact him right now anyway. No, it was better to take care of the matter at hand first.
Zhangsun Xun Yi looked up when he heard steps in the corridor outside of his study. He furrowed his brows and rose to his feet, his body tensed. When had been the last time that he hadn’t known as soon as somebody set foot on his peak? To actually manage to get to the corridor before he noticed them … This person had to be much stronger than him.
The person that finally appeared made him relax and give a sigh. “Grandmaster Leng —”
Leng Jin Yu shook his head and cupped his fists. “Greetings, Grandmaster Zhangsun. This disciple came to ask for a favor.”
Zhangsun Xun Yi raised his brows but didn’t say anything. He motioned at the chair on the other side of the table instead. “Then why don’t you have a seat? Would you care for a cup of tea?”
Leng Jin Yu shook his head, neither accepting the tea nor sitting down. “Actually, this matter won’t be a big effort on Grandmaster Zhangsun’s part. It is just … I’d need you to act as a cover-up for a bit.”
Zhangsun Xun Yi raised his brows and walked around the table, approaching Leng Jin Yu. “Act as what?”
Leng Jin Yu smiled and motioned outside. “As a cover-up. You also know that Jinde can’t return to the dimension.”
Zhangsun Xun Yi nodded. “So you’ve decided to create another dimension for him?”
Leng Jin Yu nodded. “I thought that it would be convenient to have it be at the Sect Master’s peak, considering my current position. The realm I want to create is also a bit … less restrictive than the dimension where he was before.”
Zhangsun Xun Yi raised his brows but still nodded in the end. Creating a realm wasn’t easy. It required a tremendous amount of strength but then again, the way this person looked was rather deceitful. He shouldn’t forget that this person was much older than him and had already managed to ascend and just returned because of some private matters. “You want me to make an excuse in front of the Sect Master.”
Leng Jin Yu nodded. “That would be very much appreciated.”
Zhangsun Xun Yi nodded. “Then I’ll go and explain to him. By the way the …” He had already turned to the door but couldn’t help and turn back to Leng Jin Yu again. “You’ve been rather busy the last few days, haven’t you? You should check in on your … Master every now and then. He’s very attached to you.”
Leng Jin Yu sighed. He also knew that Yuchi Bing Xia put a lot of hope in this youngest disciple of his and had always paid special attention to him since the day he took him in. He did feel a bit like was betraying him with this. Well, that was nothing he could change out right now. He would make sure that he organized the Yun Zou Sect and made sure that it was in a better state before he handed it back to him. By then, there would be some way to explain. He didn’t necessarily have to tell him the truth. No, maybe there would be another way to explain. He’d just have to see about it.
Zhangsun Xun Yi nodded and finally turned to the door. “Maybe you should return with me to see him. I will propose that you should come and have a look. Seeing a realm being created would benefit you in your cultivation as well.”
Leng Jin Yu smiled awkwardly. “Shouldn’t you rather take my Master then?” He also knew that Yuchi Bing Xia had been stuck at his current cultivation stage for a long time. He had just lacked the time to focus on cultivation with everything that was going on in the sect. If he was actually able to observe the birth of a realm, then that might spark some inspiration that would let him advance to the next stage in a short amount of time. If things weren’t so complicated, then this really was an opportunity he would’ve liked to give him.
Unfortunately, this realm couldn’t be crafted by Zhangsun Xun Yi and had to be crafted by himself instead. That way, there was no way to let Yuchi Bing Xia be there. Even if he wasn’t strong enough to see through his real cultivation stage, he would definitely notice that something was amiss when he was next to them when he created the realm. There was no way to cover something like that up.
Zhangsun Xun Yi nodded. “You don’t have to worry about that. I think I might be able to give a good excuse for that.”
Leng Jin Yu nodded. “Then I’ll put that into your hands.” He fell silent and followed the Grandmaster over to his Master’s peak, his thoughts once again returning to Jinde. Now, it really wouldn’t be much longer until they could finally see each other again. It would only depend on how fast the God of War was.
