Qiang Yan took out his sword and then wanted to rush over to where Qiu Ling was fighting but he stopped once again. Ah, his nephew-in-law was getting by quite well. He should rather take care of the other people to make sure they wouldn’t interfere with him and Jing He’s reincarnation.
He turned around to see who was the most troublesome and saw the disciples that had meanwhile gathered in front of Jinde and Yuchi Bing Xia. He didn’t know any of these people but thanks to the different robes it was easy to see who was part of the Chun Feng Sect and who wasn’t.
Qiang Yan moved in their direction only for one of the veiled people to look up at him. He stopped again, staring at the veil in the hope of seeing something from the person’s appearance to make sure whether he knew who the person. Unfortunately, the veil covered his face and most of the body, not letting him see even a single strand of hair. His lips twitched. He couldn’t be sure but there was only one person that would need to cover up this much, wasn’t there? “Longjun?”
Jinde shook his head and motioned over at Qiu Ling. “That one’s over there.”
Qiang Yan stared at him, trying to figure out what he meant. Did that mean that he was the former dragon king or did he mean that he wasn’t? He rubbed his neck and finally stepped on the ground, cupping his fists just in case. “I’m Qiang Yan, the God of War. I came here with … the ascended deity Leng Jin Yu.”
Jinde’s expression lit up and he brushed the veil aside, revealing his face. “Where is he?”
The disciples of the Chun Feng Sect raised their weapons at seeing Jinde’s hair and eye color. “Demon!”
Jinde rolled his eyes and threw them a glare, absolutely not happy that they were hindering him from seeing his husband as soon as possible. And anyway, did these guys not know any other insults? He was getting tired of this.
Yuchi Bing Xia and Hua Min also couldn’t help but give Jinde a confused look. “What are you doing?”
Jinde blinked and then took a closer look at Qiang Yan, finally noticing the faint layer of spiritual energy that was shrouding his body. Ah, it seemed that the humans weren’t able to see him if their level wasn’t high enough. He looked over at Zhangsun Xun Yi who had furrowed his brows and was looking at the place where Qiang Yan stood. Well, he was probably able to perceive something even if he wasn’t able to see exactly who had come to pay them a visit.
Zhangsun Xun Yi retracted his gaze and turned to the Sect Master and their guest. “Somebody came over. It seems that your head disciple came out of closed-door cultivation.”
Yuchi Bing Xia raised his brows. “Why wouldn’t he come over himself if he came out?” And why couldn’t he see the person that had announced this? His level wasn’t low, ah …
Jinde tilted his head and finally took off the hat. Anyway, his husband was already back and the people of the Chun Feng Sect had already seen. Why should he still bother to wear this damn thing? “I’d like to know that as well. So where is my husband?”
Qiang Yan’s lips twitched and he finally dropped the spell that was hiding him from mortal eyes. The disciples of the Chun Feng Sect tensed up, seeing that there was yet another opponent. The situation was really turning unfavorable for them.
Qiang Yan vaguely motioned towards the Sect Master’s palace. “He’s finishing that thing up.”
Jinde nodded. “Does that mean that I can go over and see him now?”
Qiang Yan nodded. “You should probably do that. What about …” He motioned to where Qiu Ling and Liu Cheng were still fighting.
Jinde looked over and shrugged his shoulders. “I’m wondering about that as well. These people think that everybody’s a demon and want to cut us up with these abominable things there.” He motioned at Liu Cheng’s weapon just in case.
Qiang Yan looked over but he couldn’t see anything special about the weapon. Well, that wasn’t a problem right now. “I can take care of them.”
Jinde raised his brows. “All of them? Because these people have a whole sect behind them that will likely try to hunt us down afterward.”
Qiang Yan looked over and furrowed his brows. Right, Bai Mu had insinuated that type of thing as well. There was no way the Chun Feng Sect would give up if they didn’t manage to either imprison or kill Qiu Ling and Jinde. Jinde wasn’t a problem since he could enter the realm as soon as the array was finished but Qiu Ling couldn’t do that …
Qiang Yan’s gaze darted around and he moved over to Jinde’s side. He leaned closer and lowered his voice. “Say … I can imagine that you’d want to spend as much time with your husband alone as you can but … Why don’t you take them with you? Even if the array only allows you and Leng Jin Yu to enter, you can get around that as long as one of you takes them in and out. They would just have to wait until the Chun Feng Sect left.”
Jinde glared at him. “Since you know that I want to be alone with my husband why do you even ask?”
Qiang Yan glanced at him and gave an apologetic smile. “Well … You first need to heal anyway, don’t you? By the time that is finished, I’m pretty sure that the Chun Feng Sect would’ve given up on finding him. Then you can just kick the two of them out.”
Jinde’s brows twitched but he finally pushed off the ground, rushing over to Qiu Ling and grabbing his arm. “You’d better make up for that.” With that, he pulled him along and rushed over to where Leng Jin Yu had just finished up tying the anchor to the array. “Open it!”
Leng Jin Yu looked up and then stepped into the array, using his spiritual energy to stand there and hold the gate open so Jinde could pass through with the two people behind him. He had no idea what was going on and why his so-called son and his lover were suddenly accompanying them but he didn’t need to think much when he saw the people that were trying to rush after them.
Qiang Yan might be able to fight all the disciples of the Chun Feng Sect but he wasn’t able to take them out in just a moment if they were trying to flee either. The worst thing was that this clamor had also drawn over everybody else. The guests that had paid the Yun Zou Sect a visit, as well as the other disciples of the Yun Zou Sect that hadn’t been there on the training grounds, had all come out to take a look at what this was about.
Leng Jin Yu’s lips twitched and Jinde used the spiritual energy that he had recovered in the Liu He Alliance to dash to the array without paying attention to anything around him, finally grabbing onto his husband’s shoulders and vanishing in the newly created realm together.
Neither of them noticed the person that had taken out what looked like a mirror made of black glass, showing the current scene to the person on the other side.
