The two people smiled at each other, making the Alliance Head feel that he really was at the wrong place. If these people wanted to flirt, then did he really need to be here? He had thought this was about serious business! Well, having the honor of seeing Grandmaster Leng made up for it a bit. And if this could dissuade this man from going to the Yun Zou Sect, that would also be good. He just had to hold on a bit longer.
Before Hua Min could sigh with relief though, Jinde’s smile broadened. “Since the God of Medicine doesn’t know and the God of War is on our side, there shouldn’t be a problem if I came over to the Yun Zou Sect with a delegation from the Liu He Alliance, would there?”
Leng Jin Yu raised his brows. “I could have sworn I had said that the situation in the sect was very dangerous.”
“You did? I can’t remember at all. Ah, this must be me getting old. My memory just isn’t that good anymore. Or maybe it’s my hearing that’s slowly getting worse.”
Leng Jin Yu smiled also widened. “That can’t be it. My husband is very beautiful, I can’t believe you’re any older than me. Since I don’t feel my hearing and my memory have gone bad, I must have forgotten to say it. Anyway, the situation isn’t well. I don’t think it would be good for you to come over.”
“So you don’t miss me at all?”
Leng Jin Yu sighed. Jinde really wasn’t playing fair with him here. “My dear … Do you have to do this to me?”
Jinde leaned closer, the apparition seemingly growing bigger. “Do what? Showing you my love? I really can’t understand you, Jin Yu. Shouldn’t every husband be thrilled to be shown this much affection?”
Leng Jin Yu gave a wry smile. “I’m certainly very thrilled that you want to see me this badly. Unfortunately, I also know that things will get dangerous if you come here. And I don’t want to put you into danger. Can’t you wait just a bit longer? I’m sure the God of War will contact me soon. Then you can return and stay here. Wouldn’t that be much better? Just imagine you came here but could only stay for a day or two. Wouldn’t it be really hard to bid farewell once again?”
“Well, since the God of War is contacting you soon, then if I return now, maybe I will even be able to stay already. Wouldn’t that be great?”
“It certainly would. Unfortunately … We don’t know for sure. So let’s not take any chances.”
Jinde hummed. His husband was really being tricky today. How could he convince him? Yes, he also knew it was dangerous but he couldn’t take being locked up here any longer. He wanted to go back. He wanted to see him. He was … He was missing him too much. “Jin Yu, can’t you understand at all?” The previously frivolous smile turned into a look of longing that perfectly showcased just what Jinde had been saying previously.
Leng Jin Yu looked at him, his heart hurting. He also didn’t want to be like this. He missed him just as much as Jinde missed him. If he could, he would go over right away but he knew that he couldn’t. “Jinde … I’m sure the God of War will contact me soon. Are you really unable to wait just that bit of time anymore?”
“What if I can’t? Jin Yu, I’m not feeling too well. I was alone previously and I could take it because I was still waiting for you to return to me. But now … We’ve seen each other again and were still separated. Now that I know where you are, I just can’t feel at ease not being with you. It’s alright if I know that it’s only a day or two but … a few weeks have already gone by. Who knows how many more there will be? I don’t know if I’ll be able to take that.”
“Is there nothing I can do to convince you otherwise? Not even if I contact you every day?”
Jinde shook his head. “I don’t want to be without you. I know I’m being willful and making trouble and I know that I should keep all this to myself and just wait but … I can’t help but feel this way.”
Leng Jin Yu didn’t answer immediately. He could also see what Jinde was feeling. He felt the same and maybe it was even worse for Jinde who had waited for so long. He really wanted to give in to him and let him return. He was still afraid that things might go wrong though. Was there nothing he could do to fulfill Jinde’s wish and still make sure that nothing would happen to him? “The delegation from the Liu He Alliance … When will they set off?”
Jinde looked to the person sitting next to him who was pretending not to notice anything. When no answer came, Jinde reached out and tugged at his sleeve. “The delegation. When will it set off?”
Hua Min turned back and looked from Jinde to Leng Jin Yu, feeling that he really shouldn’t be here. “In two days’ time, I guess?”
Leng Jin Yu nodded. “I see.” He turned back to Jinde and gave him a look. “Let me try and contact the God of War to see how they’re doing. Maybe he’ll be soon here anyway. If he is, then I won’t say anything and you can return but if he isn’t, then you have to promise me that you will stay there.”
Jinde pursed his lips but finally nodded. “Fair enough. Then you should go and contact him first. Reach out to me as soon as you know something, yes? Even if I can’t come over, I want to at least see you like this.”
Leng Jin Yu smiled. “Alright. I’ve also missed you. I won’t take long.” With that said, he cut the connection.
