Seeing that their Grandmaster was satisfied with the work they had done, Elder Tang couldn’t help but use the opportunity to ask some questions. Anyway, he wouldn’t deny it, he was a gossipy person. Who could fault him? Life as a cultivator was very long and taking in spiritual energy all day long for years on end was pretty boring. If not for those competitions that were held every few years and teaching some disciples at the side, he really wouldn’t have anything else to do.
So sometime down the road, he had started to meet up with some other Elders — regardless of they were from their own Jian Yi Sect or from other sects — for a cup of tea or a game of weiqi and would … exchange some information.
Yes, that was what it was. They weren’t merely gossiping, they were making sure that they were up to date with the things happening out in the world! That was important business.
And right now, what was happening out here was that the Grandmaster who had supposedly stayed a bachelor from the time he entered their sect to the day when he ascended to heaven had actually gotten married without them knowing and even found himself such a beauty. How could he not try to gather some information for his friends?!
Thus, now that the opportunity arose, Elder Tang couldn’t help but lean over the table and lower his voice so as to not disturb the beauty outside. “Grandmaster, there’s something I’d like to ask.”
Leng Jin Yu raised his brows and glanced at Elder Tang, already feeling that there was something strange up with the way he approached this. “If there’s something that Elder Tang would like to know, then please just go ahead and ask. Anyway, we’re from the same sect. Naturally, I will do my best to answer your questions.”
Elder Tang glanced at the door to make sure that Jinde wasn’t in sight. “How did you meet your husband?”
Leng Jin Yu was taken aback. This was the question that Elder Tang had? He really wouldn’t have expected that. Well, it wasn’t difficult to answer though. And he also didn’t believe that it would be a problem to answer it. “Well, I’ve been staying in the Yun Zou Sect pretending to be a disciple. When I came back from a mission, he had occupied my house.” Well, it had been slightly more complicated than that but those gritty details probably weren’t important to the Elder. The gist of the matter was just as he had said right now.
Elder Tang looked at him in a daze though. “Ah? He occupied your house?”
Leng Jin Yu nodded. “That is precisely what happened.”
Elder Tang looked at the door as if he would be able to see Jinde that way and furrowed his brows. He really wouldn’t have thought that the Grandmaster’s husband was like that. “But why would he do that?”
Leng Jin Yu just gave a smile. “Well, he could not stay any longer at the place where had he had been before so he needed to relocate. Since I wasn’t in at that moment, he just chose my house. Afterward, he stayed.”
Elder Tang still had trouble wrapping his head around this. “And you just allowed him to do that?”
Leng Jin Yu sighed at that. “This matter is a bit more complicated than it sounds. There are some ties from a previous time between us. Anyway, you do not need to worry about Jinde. There’s nothing wrong with him. Our relationship is also going very well. I’m happy with him as is and I could never be with another person. So there really is no need to worry, Elder Tang. I do appreciate that you’re thinking about my well-being though. It just goes to show that in the Jian Yi Sect is still like a family.”
Elder Tang put some of his worries to rest when Leng Jin Yu was so straightforward about things. He didn’t quite understand but as long as the Grandmaster said that there was no need to worry, then there was no need to worry.
Well, he wouldn’t have needed to worry before that either considering that the Grandmaster would certainly know what to do. Although … Considering that he hadn’t had a relationship before, it was still a bit worrisome. After all, what if a beauty turned his head and made use of his innocence? That would definitely lead to trouble!
Leng Jin Yu raised his brows. He had a shrewd idea of what was going on in Elder Tang’s head but he didn’t dare to acknowledge it. If he did, wouldn’t things become even more absurd? No, it was much better to just leave it at that. He cleared his throat and then turned to Fei Bai Mu. “I think you mentioned that you would return to the Jian Yi Sect after this was done?”
Fei Bai Mu gave a nod. “I will. Anyway, there’s nothing else we can do to help you and your husband and that matter with the Chun Feng Sect needs to be finally dealt with. I think we have prepared long enough. And with those disciples rescued from there, they can also give their accounts when we invite them. With that, there really won’t be any chance for the Chun Feng Sect to try and invert black and white. Also, we won’t have to fear that anything will happen to the imprisoned disciples anymore. That does make matters much easier.”
Leng Jin Yu was satisfied with that. “You’re definitely right. What happened with the Chun Feng Sect … It does need to stop. Something like this can’t be condoned to happen any longer. Otherwise, there will be many more innocent people suffering in the future. You should deal with it soon as you can.”
Fei Bai Mu gave another nod and then stood up. “That is what I will do. Speaking of which, I’ll leave right now. I only have to have a talk with the person currently in charge of the Yun Zou Sect to invite them over. After all, this trial concerns the Yun Zou Sect as well. Don’t worry, I won’t mention our relationship. Speaking of which … Will you be there when we put them on trial?”
Leng Jin Yu glanced toward the door to the garden before he answered. “I can imagine that you would like me there but I’m not sure if I will be able to. It’s not that Jinde can’t be left alone but I still feel better being with him. We will see if it is possible. If it is, then I’ll come with the people of the Yun Zou Sect.”
Fei Bai Mu nodded and then waved at Elder Tang before leaving the dimension. It was true, they could not let this go on any longer. No, instead, they had to finally put an end to this. After that, they could focus on other things again.
