Qiu Ling was fuming but he still went after them, sitting down in the chamber that Leng Jin Yu brought them to. Grandmaster Zhangsun only sighed and also followed them, feeling that he should’ve tried to stay outside when the array lit up and gone back to spend the time with Hua Min. This definitely wasn’t a matter he wanted to get involved in.
Fei Bai Mu looked around, feeling a bit astonished when she saw the place. “I wouldn’t have thought that this was the kind of place that Grandmaster Leng would like to live at after his ascension. He always struck me as a little more … plain.”
Leng Jin Yu’s lips twitched. In fact, he didn’t care about how the place where he stayed at looked at all. Whether it was a palace or a hut, he could still cultivate. But he had made this place look like this for Jinde and from what he had seen so far, his lover seemed to like it. Anyway, he did not really want to discuss that with Fei Bai Mu. “Well, some things are different now. Anyway, who is that child?”
Fei Bai Mu raised her brows. “That’s what you want to know after all this? I thought you were going to explain what happened.”
“I am going to explain what happened. I’d just like to get this matter out of the way. I’m pretty sure the answer to that will be shorter than my explanation.” And he really couldn’t take Qiu Ling’s accusing glare any longer.
Fei Bai Mu looked at the young man that was sitting next to her who was still looking furious. “Relax, he’s my youngest disciple. He has nothing to do with our Grandmaster.”
Qiu Ling glanced at his father and gave him a long look. “Good for you. I totally would’ve told the old geezer.”
Leng Jin Yu’s lips twitched but he didn’t say anything to that and just turned back to Fei Bai Mu. “As for your question … Originally, I did not intend for things to go like this. I was staying in the Nine Heavens after my ascension when some incident happened that required me to come back to the mortal realm. I was … Well, putting it simply, I had to investigate something that was taking place at the Yun Zou Sect. That was when I came here. In the end, even though that matter had been cleared up later on, I still stayed here because I met the person I wanted to spend my life with.”
“Even though you claimed that this matter was difficult to explain, you’ve finished quite fast.” It really made her wonder if he had just been saying that and hurriedly made something up.
Leng Jin Yu had no trouble seeing her doubt but he gently shook his head. “That is what happened. I just think that you won’t accept this bare-bones explanation, will you? So, what else do you want to know?”
Fei Bai Mu looked at him for a moment and then glanced at her disciple that was still trying to be picked up by Qiu Ling. She sighed and then tried to hand him over.
Even though Qiu Ling was finally convinced that this child was not his father’s illegitimate child, he didn’t look like he was planning on doing her the favor. “What?”
“He likes to be carried around by handsome people. So just pick him up for a while.”
Hearing that, Qiu Ling didn’t hesitate any longer and just took the child. Obviously, he was the most handsome person in the room. Naturally, the child would want to stay with him. “Your disciple has such good taste.”
Fei Bai Mu stared at him until she was pulled back to reality by Leng Jin Yu’s sigh.
“You were saying?”
Fei Bai Mu shook her head and turned back to him, giving a smile. “The person you wanted to spend your life with … where are they now?”
“Meditating. I’m also afraid you won’t be able to see him. He is … not quite in the condition to meet anyone right now.” His gaze dimmed a little, making Fei Bai Mu furrow her brows.
“Might I ask what the matter is? Even though you’ve already left, I still see you as a member of our Jian Yi Sect. Anyway, since you’re back, we should help you out if we can.”
Leng Jin Yu just smiled. “If it was that easy, he would’ve long been healed.” After all, he would have been able to go out and get some resources for him and there was also Xin Lan who would never give up any opportunity to show his usefulness in front of Jinde.
Sure, the Jian Yi Sect had more people but they wouldn’t be able to compare with either of them. Anyway, he also didn’t want to inconvenience them. And what would they get from helping Jinde? The two of them weren’t even residing in the Jian Yi Sect.
Fei Bai Mu watched his expression, wondering what exactly this was about. She didn’t really mind helping the spouse of their Grandmaster. Anyway, if he had only stayed here because of that person and that person had to stay here because they were hurt, then it would be beneficial to them if they helped to heal them. After all, wouldn’t they be able to go to the Jian Yi Sect afterward?
If she was able to get an ascended deity and his spouse to stay at the sect, there would be no way anybody would ever dare to make a move on the Jian Yi Sect. This was definitely beneficial to them.
Qiu Ling looked from one person to the other and wasn’t quite sure what was going on. These matters of the mortal realm … He didn’t really care for them. Anyway, he hadn’t come here because of that. “If that were all the questions you had, can I ask one of my own? Old man, what do you know about the demon-hunting sects? I feel like teaching them a lesson but it’s a little troublesome for our race. Any ideas?”
Hearing him mention that, Fei Bai Mu turned to get another look at him. This person … was not human either? It seemed she was meeting more and more people like that these days.
