Mei Chao Bing finally pushed the thought away and just focused on Yun Bei Fen again. In any case, it couldn’t be changed but he could use his time wisely. Unfortunately, he also couldn’t do much for Yun Bei Fen right now other than watching him practice and inject a word or two every now and then to praise him when things had gone well or to tell him what the problem might have been when one of his tries was even worse than the others.
By the time they arrived at the Zhen Yan Sect’s camp, Yun Bei Fen hadn’t made much progress. While he was already able to move his ‘attack’, it wouldn’t even tickle if he hit someone with it. He was a little depressed but everybody reassured him that it wasn’t a wonder that it hadn’t worked yet. After all, it hadn’t even been a week. He should give it some more time. At the very least, until they were back at the Teng Yong Sect.
Needless to say, Mei Chao Bing was the one who tried to console him the most. “In any case, you can also ask your Master at that time. Maybe he’ll have an idea of what will help you more with practicing.” He rubbed his head, giving him a reassuring smile.
In any case, just a while ago, Yun Bei Fen hadn’t known anything about cultivation and hadn’t even been able to sense spiritual energy that was further away. Being able to do so now and also being able to both use a flying sword and form at least a small energy shield to defend himself was quite a lot of progress.
Well, this was also because his level was more than high enough to start with these things. Usually, disciples would start to learn this kind of skill when they were in the Qi refining stage. As a disciple in the foundation establishment stage, it really wasn’t anything to brag about that he had finally learned this. In fact, it would make people wonder just how Elder Baili was teaching his disciples.
Mei Chao Bing naturally wouldn’t tell him this. To him, it was good if his little bunny was slowly making progress. It was only important that he wouldn’t get into trouble and be hurt. And since he was slowly getting a little more proficient that was the only necessary thing.
Yun Bei Fen wasn’t too sure if his Master would really be able to help him but he also understood that he needed to give things time. Thus, he focused on something else first. “Mei Chao Bing, say, are you going to see Elder Fa again?” He still remembered that Mei Chao Bing had promised the last time that he would take him along if he did but he couldn’t help but wonder.
Mei Chao Bing brows, having a good guess why his little bunny would be asking. “Why? Do you want to meet her?”
Yun Bei Fen hesitated for a moment but then nodded. “It seems you’re getting along with her well if she actually gave you candy for me. So I would like to see her.” He knew that Mei Chao Bing had never had it easy in their Teng Yong Sect since the matter with his Master. Now, there was actually another sect’s Elder who would treat the two of them so well. Of course, this Elder Fa had to be a special person. Why wouldn’t he want to see her?
Mei Chao Bing smiled and then nodded. “I guess we should do that then.” He turned to Song Mu, wanting to discuss the matter.
The other disciples just raised his hand though. “You were the one who was originally intended to inform the Zhen Yan Sect anyway. That we travel together was more out of convenience. I wouldn’t tell you what to do or not to do now that we’re back here.”
Mei Chao Bing nodded. In other words, Song Mu was giving the command of the group back to him now that they had reached the Zhen Yan Sect once more. This made sense considering that they had done things the same way when they had come here originally. “Well, let’s go then.”
This time, they didn’t have any problems at the entrance. The disciples guarding the camp weren’t the same ones as the last time but since Mei Chao Bing and the others had spent some time in the Zhen Yan Sect’s camp previously, they had also seen them. After all, it wasn’t like there were many people coming to visit. They immediately let them in and then led Mei Chao Bing and Yun Bei Fen over to the tent where Elder Fa was staying.
The Elder nodded and immediately asked if they were going to stay before sending off the disciples again to make sure that the rest of the group was accommodated. Then, she invited Mei Chao Bing and Yun Bei Fen to sit down.
She couldn’t help but take a slightly longer look at Yun Bei Fen. She had only seen him for a short moment before and hadn’t really had time to take a good look at him. Now though, she felt that this youth was indeed just as cute as she had thought. “So, you are Ah Bing’s fiance.”
Yun Bei Fen nodded happily. “Thank you for the candy, Elder Fa.”
The Elder couldn’t help but laugh and actually pulled out a few more pieces, handing some to Yun Bei Fen and another one to Mei Chao Bing. “I knew you’d like that. Here you go. Have some more.”
Mei Chao Bing couldn’t help but smile wryly while Yun Bei Fen showed her a genuinely happy smile and thanked her again.
Elder Fa felt that he was even cuter than she had thought. “So, are you and your group going to stay for a bit this time?”
Mei Chao Bing could only shake his head even though he really would’ve liked to stay here for a while longer. “I’m afraid we can’t. Actually, the Elders sent a message that we should return soon. They didn’t say much but I’m afraid things aren’t looking good.”
