Jinde wasn’t the type of person to hesitate for long when he decided on something. Since he wanted to have a second wedding and also wanted to use it to extend a helping hand to Xin Lan for once, he would naturally just go for it. Thus, his husband was soon kicked out of the special dimension with the task to start organizing everything with his Master and Grandmaster Zhangsun, while he would stay behind and take care of some of the finer details that he felt were important. Like the very important question of which fabric he wanted their wedding robes to be made of or how their wedding chamber was supposed to be decorated.
Leng Jin Yu couldn’t help but oblige. In any case, if this was important to Jinde, he wouldn’t say no. It would’ve been nice if their second wedding was really just their wedding and not overshadowed by somebody else’s special occasion but he was willing to let that go as long as he had the chance to officially marry Jinde in the human realm. Thus, he went over to Sect Master Yuchi’s peak and had the disciples outside announce his presence.
Yuchi Bing Xia looked up from the work he was currently doing, his expression a little surprised. “Yu Jin came over?” He came over and didn’t just come in himself but actually had somebody else come over and announce him? This disciple of his … he really was too polite!
Wu Min Huan who was sitting to the side and helping his Master deal with things tensed up a little. Even though his Master had changed his mind and now wanted him to follow him onto the position of Sect Master again, he couldn’t forget how simply he had been tossed aside before. If Yu Jin tried to take the position back, he was pretty sure that his Master might waver again. He really wasn’t sure if he could deal with that.
Yuchi Bing Xia didn’t notice what was going on and just waved. “Well, let him in then.” After all, he definitely wouldn’t turn away his own disciple. When Leng Jin Yu walked in, he gave him a bright smile. “Yu Jin, come over and sit down. What is the matter?”
Leng Jin Yu cupped his fists and bowed, greeting the two of them first. “Master. Senior martial brother.” Only then did he go over and sat down on the other side of the table. In fact, he would’ve liked to just continue standing. No matter how much he tried to see himself as a person of the Yun Zou Sect, he knew that all of this was just a lie. He would forever be that Leng Jin Yu of the Jian Yi Sect. That wouldn’t change. But, well, this was a worry he wouldn’t have much longer. He had already thought so before but now, with their second wedding being imminent, the time really wasn’t long anymore.
“Well, this is about …” He fell silent again, not quite sure what to say. As far as he remembered, whether it was Yuchi Bing Xia or Zhangsun Xun Yi, neither of them had ever used Jinde’s name. They hadn’t even told him when they introduced him. To them, he had only ever been ‘that person’. But he couldn’t very well call his husband that way, could he? Also, Wu Min Huan was present right now. He didn’t quite know how to address his lover in front of him since Wu Min Huan likely didn’t know about him and which significance he had for the Yun Zou Sect.
Yuchi Bing Xia raised his brows. “This sounds quite serious. Is it something you can’t even tell your Master?”
Leng Jin Yu gave him another look. “It is not that I can’t tell you, Master. Rather than that, I don’t quite know how to say this.”
Wu Min Huan looked from one person to the other, feeling a little left out. He really wondered if he should excuse himself and just go.
Before he could do so, Leng Jin Yu spoke up again. “You know that I have been living with my lover for several years now. I in any case, in the eyes of his people, we would have long since been seen as a married couple. It is just that here, it is the other way around. So now that he has healed his injuries, we were thinking of holding a second wedding according to our customs.”
Yuchi Bing Xia’s eyes widened and he stared at his disciple incredulously. Right. Now that he thought about it, his disciple had never really married that man. Although … to be honest, he still wasn’t quite sure what to think of this relationship. “Are you sure that you want to do this? Marrying him …”
Leng Jin Yu shook his head. “Master is worrying too much. This wedding … it is a mere formality. It will not change anything between us. It is just that it is something the two of us would like to do. So I would be happy if Master was giving us his blessing and would maybe help me with organizing a few things.”
Yuchi Bing Xia sighed and finally nodded. “Well, you said back then that you were not going to reconsider. It’s been a thousand years. I probably shouldn’t expect you to change your mind after all this time if you weren’t even willing to do so back then. Since it’s like this, then I won’t say anything. In any case, you are my disciple, I want you to be happy. Also, with your status in the sect, this should be a big thing. We should put some more thought into organizing it. Have you already thought about when you want to hold the ceremony?”
Leng Jin Yu shook his head. “No. But as I know him, he would prefer it if he didn’t have to wait too long. So the sooner we are able to arrange everything, the better it would be. If he could, I’m pretty sure that he would like to marry tomorrow already.”
