With the plan being smoothly implemented, Elder Baili went over to his disciple, patting his head and giving some last-minute advice for the mission. Afterward, he gave Mei Chao Bing a dark look without anybody else noticing and pursed his lips.
Hmph, just because he didn’t think that this guy was a traitor that didn’t mean that he wasn’t angry that he had stolen his disciple. Well, it was still good that Yun Bei Fen would have somebody with him who was able to protect him. Ah, he still had to make sure that this brat wouldn’t abandon his little disciple halfway through though. Wouldn’t Fen’er be heartbroken if he did?
Elder Baili cleared his throat and raised his chin to give Mei Chao Bing the most awe-inspiring gaze he could muster. He had to instill some fear in him first so he would think twice about treating Yun Bei Fen badly. “Mei Chao Bing, you better pay attention to Yun Bei Fen while you’re on the mission. If he gets back with even hair out of place …”
Mei Chao Bing smiled and cupped his fists, bowing to Baili Chao. “I wouldn’t dare to neglect his security. Elder Baili doesn’t need to worry.”
Baili Chao harrumphed again but smirked inwardly. He could make a trap for Yang Wu Huang, so he could also trap this Mei Chao Bing! “What ‘I don’t need to worry’? Naturally, I don’t need to worry! That’ll be the day if I couldn’t even entrust Fen’er to his own fiance! If you don’t bring them back in one piece, you can bet I won’t give him to you regardless of what I’ve promised before!” He gave a huff and didn’t wait for Mei Chao Bing to say anything before he turned around and stalked off, leaving the square in stunned silence.
As soon as he was out of sight, he smirked. Hmph. This guy better not thought about abandoning his disciple now! He better not think about abandoning the Teng Yong Sect and going to the demonic faction either! No, he wouldn’t allow that.
Mei Chao Bing watched the Elder leave in a daze. Fiance? That … He somehow felt there were too many blessings at once today. Could it be he was still lying in bed and dreaming?
He glanced at Yun Bei Fen but his little bunny stopped didn’t even seem to have noticed just what his Master had said. He looked back at Mei Chao Bing with the same glittering eyes as usual.
Mei Chao Bing sighed and gripped his hand. That would need to be one elaborate dream if he could come up with all of this. No, most likely, Elder Baili had thought of doing this from the very beginning. Maybe this was his way of honoring the promise that he would let them be together or maybe he wanted to make sure that he really took care of Yun Bei Fen. After all, now his own reputation was also tied to this. Not that he would have needed this additional reason. He would never let anything bad happen to Yun Bei Fen anyway.
Well, it was good as well. Now that Elder Baili had already said something like that, he didn’t have to hold back anymore. He was sure that this information would be spread around at the speed of lightning. Whoever hadn’t been at the square right now and maybe even the people back in the sect would hear of this in the shortest amount of time possible. He might as well go all out then.
He was willing, Yun Bei Fen was willing, and now everybody knew. What reason was there to pretend anymore? Yun Bei Fen wasn’t that young anymore that it would be a problem for him to be in an official relationship. They should just proudly display it in front of everybody else and see where things were going from there.
Mei Chao Bing brushed through Yun Bei Fen’s hair and gave him a smile. “Your Master really is a nice person.”
Yun Bei Fen smiled back. “You’re much nicer than him. He actually scolded you again just now. Wasn’t everything good before?”
Mei Chao Bing shook his head and nudged Yun Bei Fen’s nose. “What are you saying? He wasn’t scolding me, he was just … advising me in a slightly harsh tone. It’s because he’s just as worried about you as I am.”
Yun Bei Fen tiptoed and kissed Mei Chao Bing’s lips. “But you’re talking much more nicely. Master is always getting angry. I sometimes doubt he likes me at all.”
Mei Chao Bing pinched his little bunny’s cheeks. “Do you really think that?”
Yun Bei Fen blinked his eyes and then shook his head. “No, no, Master really loves me. If he didn’t like one of his disciples, it’d probably be second senior martial brother! He always says he’s troublesome.”
“Mn.” Mei Chao Bing gave a noncommittal grunt. He didn’t know Yun Bei Fen’s senior martial brothers that well. In fact, he had only seen each of them a few times. The first and second one were much older than him while the third one was more or less around his age or at most a few years older. There hadn’t been many chances to see either of them.
He had heard of them though. In fact, the whole Teng Yong Sect had probably heard of them. They were a bunch of troublemakers but Elder Baili was fiercely protective of them if somebody from outside made trouble for them. He really couldn’t imagine that the Elder didn’t love any of them as if they were his own children even if it was that especially troublesome second disciple.
As for Yun Bei Fen … Mei Chao Bing smiled. Whether it was him or the Elder, this little bunny had wrapped them around his little finger. He only had to flutter those eyelashes and look at them with those adorable doe eyes and they would do whatever he wanted. Cuteness was really a lethal weapon.
