Fei Bai Mu was not the only person coming over to the Yun Zou Sect. Back in the capital city of the Long kingdom, Jing Yi was looking at his mother with the apologetic expression.
“We really won’t be gone for long. We’re just going to check on some things in the sect and then return as soon as we can. We definitely won’t leave uncle and aunt alone with this matter with Guanyu.”
Madam Zhong sighed and patted her son’s hand. “That girl has always been willful. Don’t you know that already? And it’s not like she ran away on her own. Her husband is with her and he’s a cultivator himself. She won’t be in any danger. It’s just a matter of time until she comes back together with Xiao Li. There’s no need for you to worry about her. Just go and do what you have to do.” She turned to Qiu Ling next, reaching up and patting his cheek. “I guess I don’t have to tell you. Take care of Jing Yi when you’re out there. Even though you don’t have to care about Guanyu, I’d also be happy if you came to visit again sometime.”
Qiu Ling nodded. “Of course, mother-in-law. I’ll definitely bring Jing’er over some more in the future.” Don’t joke with him, he had already seen that his beloved was anxious about how his mother was doing. Naturally, he would let him spend some more time in the capital city from now on. Even if he had to live with that stupid girl hanging around all the time, he could also deal with it. Anyway, if he and his beloved were there, she wouldn’t need to help out in the teahouse. The two of them could do that while she went to help her father or something. Wouldn’t that be much better?
With that thought, Qiu Ling wasn’t too worried. He gave Madam Zhong a smile and then turned to his beloved, tugging at his hand. “Well, I guess we should go then. Anyway, if you don’t want to, we also don’t have to return to the Yun Zou Sect. I’m pretty sure they are able to handle everything on their own.”
Jing Yi smiled wryly. He also knew that Qiu Ling didn’t want to but he still felt that it was better to go there. “It’s just for checking out how things are. If there’s nothing else to consider, then we can return right away. We’ll just go and take a look.”
Qiu Ling nodded and the two of them finally left the teahouse and then flew over to the Yun Zou Sect.
Considering that all of this had started with Ma Zhi Wu, they first went to the Grandelder’s palace. If somebody was sure to be up-to-date with what had happened in the last week and a half, then it would be Nian Hong Fang.
The person in question was currently pacing up and down in his Master’s study. They already knew where Ma Zhi Wu was but now, they had to wait for the Jian Yi Sect’s Sect Master to answer Alliance Head Hua’s message. Once again, they had to wait. It was starting to drive him crazy.
When he heard steps behind him, he whirled around, a hopeful expression on his face. Seeing that it was Jing Yi and Qiu Ling who came in, his expression dimmed somewhat.
Jing Yi raised his brows. “Senior martial brother Nian … What’s the matter?”
Next to him, Qiu Ling narrowed his eyes. It seemed that this Nian Hong Fang had been waiting for somebody else. “You probably found out where he is?” And maybe he was even waiting for him to appear in front of him again? Then these guys had been even faster than he thought!
Nian Hong Fang sighed and schooled his expression. “I’m sorry. It’s true, we found out where he is. Right now, we’re waiting for the help of another sect to figure out how to go from here. In fact, this isn’t as easy as we thought it’d be.” He motioned at the table and then sat down with the two of them, explaining just what had happened.
Jing Yi couldn’t help but stare at him in a daze when Nian Hong Fang finally finished. “It actually was the Chun Feng Sect? I can’t believe it.” Even though there had been a confrontation between them the last time, he had been sure that that had just been a misunderstanding.
They knew Hong Bao so he had always felt that that matter would be cleared up in the future as soon as they had the chance to sit down and talk about it. To think that things had actually escalated further and that even before that last meeting … This really made him wonder what it meant.
Nian Hong Fang sighed. “I also wouldn’t have thought that. But it’s definitely the truth. I don’t think there can be any doubt about that if there are other sects who suffered the same fate. Their morals are really …” He shook his head. “To be honest, it makes me wonder if the demon-hunting sects might not be worth than the demons. How can they say the demons are evil creatures but then stab their own partners in the back like this? It’s not right. It absolutely isn’t right.”
Jing Yi nodded while Qiu Ling didn’t bother to say anything. He actually felt that demons were indeed evil but those demon-hunting sects weren’t any better. Weren’t they all on the same level? What reason did they have to talk badly about each other? It was just the pot calling the kettle black.
Anyway, this time, they had captured somebody from his own race, as well as a friend of his beloved. He shouldn’t just let them get away with it. Unfortunately, the dragons were still related to the demons so the demon hunters would be able to injure them quite easily. It really made him wonder what he should do about that.
Anyway, as the king of the dragon race, he felt that it was time to show his might. He definitely couldn’t let them get away with this.
