Hua Min looked at Jinde with a complicated expression. What he said … It wasn’t wrong. He wasn’t too sure what to make of it though. They had the Sect Master of the Yun Zou Sect, the Grandmaster of the Yun Zou Sect, the most talented disciple of the Yun Zou Sect, and even him as an Alliance Head of the Liu He Alliance. Would they really not be able to make these few disciples of the Liu Cheng Sect submit to them without the help of Grandmaster Leng?
Yuchi Bing Xia understood even less. “Yu Jin? Why would he be able to help?”
Jinde smiled. “Well, I just trust my husband very much. Can’t I do that?”
Yuchi Bing Xia’s lips twitched. “You can certainly do that just … I really doubt he’d be able to do anything. At the very least, I doubt he’d be able to do anything that we aren’t capable of doing.”
Jinde shrugged his shoulders. “Well, maybe I’m blind because of love and overestimating him. I guess we’ll have to see.” He glanced at the weapon that Yuchi Bing Xia held and then stretched out his hand. “Didn’t you want to give me a weapon, father-in-law?”
Yuchi Bing Xia’s lips twitched and he had a look at his spatial bag. He should have a weapon somewhere in there. Before he could find one, Zhangsun Xun Yi took one out of his own and handed it to Jinde. “You shouldn’t fight if it isn’t absolutely necessary.”
Jinde nodded. “I know that. It wouldn’t do to get injured at this point in time.” He sighed. “It really makes me wonder just when Jin Yu will return.”
As for the person in question … He was currently waking up. His eyelids fluttered and he finally cracked his eyes open, slowly blinking at the environment that was flashing past him. He seemed to be moving at a fast pace?
He wanted to raise his hand to rub his eyes only to find that he was held on both sides. Leng Jin Yu lifted his head and looked to his right side, seeing Bai Mu next to him.
Bai Mu also looked over when he felt him move and then motioned for Qiang Yan to stop. The two of them landed on the ground and put Leng Jin Yu down. “How are you?”
Leng Jin Yu touched his forehead. He was still feeling slightly dizzy but other than that, he didn’t feel any different from before. “I guess I’m alright. We’re …” He looked around, feeling that this place looked familiar.
“Not far from the Yun Zou Sect. We thought that since you needed to return soon, it would be best if we already brought you over. It’s good that you woke up beforehand though. I really wouldn’t want to explain this to your husband.”
Leng Jin Yu’s lips twitched at the thought of him being carried over and handed to Jinde while still being unconscious. If that happened, there would definitely be trouble. He could already imagine Jinde’s furious expression as soon as they were alone and how he’d chew him out for risking his life like that. Well, he wasn’t wrong. “I guess we should hurry then. I don’t know how much time has gone by in the mortal realm since I left but we should finish the array as soon as possible.”
Qiang Yan nodded and then motioned in the direction they had been going in. “Can you go alone or do you still need help?”
Leng Jin Yu moved his arms and legs and inspected his spiritual veins but couldn’t find anything that was wrong. “I should be alright.”
Qiang Yan nodded once more and the three of them took to the air again, moving toward the Yun Zou Sect. When they got closer, Qiang Yan’s brows furrowed. Something was happening down there. He could hear the clanging of weapons and there was a distinct feeling of a fight happening close by. He glanced over to the other two people and noticed that their expressions also weren’t good. “What should we do?”
Leng Jin Yu pondered and slowed down to make sure they wouldn’t reach the Yun Zou Sect before they hadn’t decided. “We don’t know who the ones fighting are. It might not have anything to do with Jinde. But just on the off-chance that it does, we need to finish the array first so that he can seek refuge there.” He glanced at Bai Mu at that. “If I took out the part of my soul that I cut off, would you be able to take it to the array and finish it yourself?”
Bai Mu shook his head. “I would advise against trying that. Souls are very fragile. Especially so after they are taken out of the body. It would be best to only do that when we are directly in front of the array and able to incorporate it as the anchor immediately.”
Leng Jin Yu sighed. Well, that would have been a little too easy.
Qiang Yan cleared his throat to get their attention and then motioned toward the fight. “How about I head over there while the two of you finish the array? Whatever is going on, with my skills, I should be able to stall whoever is attacking. I’ll try to let your husband know that he should head over to the array as soon as he can. Setting up the anchor shouldn’t take a long time so that should be our best guess.”
Leng Jin Yu nodded. “If you wouldn’t mind.”
Qiang Yan waved. “Don’t mention it. In the end, we are more or less family. It wouldn’t do to leave you hanging right now, would it? So just go. I’ll go ahead. Let’s hope that I’ll draw the attention of whoever is doing that.”
The other two nodded and then headed off in slightly different directions. Now, it wouldn’t be long anymore until the safe haven Leng Jin Yu had planned for his lover was finally finished so that he wouldn’t have to worry about the demon king any longer. The only question was: Would it be finished soon enough?
