At that time, the king they wanted to contact had long become bored. Qiu Ling had been looking at his transmission stone in annoyance for a long time. In fact, even after a few hours it had felt like days to him.
How long could it take to break somebody out of the demon king’s dungeon? Was that really such a hard task? Actually, why had he still been in there? Shouldn’t he have broken out on his own long ago? Since when were the people of his dragon race so useless?
Leng Jin Yu sighed at the incessant drumming of Qiu Ling’s fingers on the table. He was pretty sure he had seen Jinde’s brows twitch more than once. If he didn’t interfere, these two would probably start to bicker again in a while.
Feeling that he should try to mediate since he was married to one and more or less related to the other, he cleared his throat. “I’m sure they’ll contact you soon. Just wait a bit more. After all, the time in the mortal realm flows differently. While it’s only been a few minutes there, hours will pass here. You’ll have to give them a bit of time.”
Qiu Ling pursed his lips. He didn’t have time though! His beloved was waiting for him outside and was probably very worried already. After all, hadn’t he promised that he would only go and do something for a short moment? His Jing’er must be worried sick!
Outside, Jinde sighed and looked through the door, giving Qiu Ling an annoyed look, indeed not far from starting to give him a piece of his mind. “Why are you more of a child than Xiao Yu? If you’re so eager to go and get back to your fiance, then just leave here for now and wait for them to contact you outside. It’s not like you need to stay here all the time.”
Qiu Ling pursed his lips even further, looking at the child in Jinde’s arms with the same annoyance he had felt before. It was a bit of a different flavor though. “No idea what you’re talking about. Anyway, I’ve also asked him something for your sake. It’s not like you won’t get anything out of this.”
“You did but it still won’t change anything about the fact that you’re still here without knowing what to do. You can just go back to your fiance and wait there. As soon as you know something, you can just come back and tell me. I’ll still be here at that time.”
Qiu Ling huffed but still got up and left the secret realm after giving the two of them a dirty look. One of them was his actual father’s reincarnation while the other was something like his stepfather. How could they throw him out like this? Shouldn’t they have invited Jing Yi to come over instead? They were so irresponsible!
It was probably just because they were planning to have another child. He had known that he wouldn’t count for anything anymore when that time came. Hmph. He’d show them! When he and Jing He got a child, it would be a thousand times more beautiful than theirs!
Back inside the realm, Jinde shook his head and then went to sit down next to Leng Jin Yu again, handing him the child in his arms.
Hua Lin Yu looked at Jinde blankly. He stretched out his arms, wanting to be held by him again.
Jinde reached out and nudged his nose in return. “You stay with my husband for a moment. I’m still trying to get him to have a child with me in a while. Help me to show him that it’s very nice to have a little one like you.”
Leng Jin Yu side-eyed his husband and then patted the child’s head. “Don’t worry, it’s nothing against you. He’s just a bit willful sometimes and does as he wants. Nobody can change his mind.”
Hua Lin Yu turned to look at him and even though he felt that this man couldn’t compare with the other’s beauty, he was still really handsome. In the end, he hugged Leng Jin Yu’s neck and obliged.
Jinde smiled happily and looked at his husband carrying the child. Mn, this was very good. When they had one of their own, the scene would be just as beautiful. No, it would be even better because then, it would be their own child. He could hardly wait for that day.
Fei Bai Mu looked from one person to the other and really wanted to clear her throat to remind them that she was still there. In fact, she really would’ve liked to get up and leave just like Zhangsun Xun Yi had before but unfortunately, the child the two of them were playing with was her small disciple. She couldn’t leave him here. If she did, the Hua family would have a few things to say about that.
Since there was no way to leave, she felt that she should at least make herself useful. “Grandmaster Leng, you wouldn’t happen to have a study here, would you? I’d like to write back to the Jian Yi Sect.”
Leng Jin Yu raised his brows but then nodded. “Of course. Do you want to stay here for a while or …?”
Fei Bai Mu looked at the child that he was still holding and then to the Grandmaster’s husband. “I guess I will have no other choice.”
Jinde beamed at her and then got up. “Since Jin Yu is busy right now, I can bring you over. Actually, you can choose a room. We have a lot of them here.” He went out of the room, waiting for her to follow.
Fei Bai Mu glanced at the Grandmaster and her little disciple and then sighed, nodding at Leng Jin Yu. “Then I’ll go and take care of some things first.”
Leng Jin Yu nodded and just continued to sit where he was. Obviously, there were some things that Jinde and Fei Bai Mu wanted to talk about. He turned to Hua Lin Yu and gave him a smile. “So, you haven’t been long in the Jian Yi Sect, have you?”
The boy shook his head. “I haven’t. My family only brought me there a week ago. But everyone is really nice.” He pondered for a moment and then looked at the door where Jinde had just vanished. “My Master lied though. Her other disciples aren’t that good-looking after all.”
He looked very disappointed when he said that, making Leng Jin Yu couldn’t help but chuckle.
“Did she say her disciples were all very good-looking?”
Hua Lin Yu nodded. “I also thought they were good-looking at first. But now I think she was exaggerating. They’re not that good-looking.”
Leng Jin Yu couldn’t help but pity the disciples of the Jian Yi Sect. Most likely, this child had ridiculously high standards after seeing people like Jinde and Qiu Ling. And, even if he didn’t like to admit it, having contact with Xin Lan probably hadn’t helped either.
Somehow, the dragon race had ridiculously many good-looking people. There had to be something in their genes that caused this. It was a pity for the other races but they just couldn’t keep up.
