OMF V8C23 A Special Status

Back in the mortal realm, Xin Lan looked at Hua Lin Yu and finally raised his brows. “Do you want to follow her and arrange accommodations for us as well?”

Hua Lin Yu looked at him, a little unsure of what to do. “Well … Do you want to stay here?” In any case, the wedding was already done. There really was no reason to stay here, was there? Could it be that Xin Lan was staying for Jinde?

The thought involuntarily crossed his mind, startling Hua Lin Yu. He really didn’t understand why he had suddenly questioned that. No matter why Xin Lan wanted to stay, it was alright. It didn’t matter. Also, didn’t he also want to stay? After all, his Master was here and he hadn’t seen her in three years. It would be nice to be able to catch up.

He looked at the ground, puckering his lips, and finally nodded. “Well, I guess it would be better to stay. So yes, let’s follow her.”

Xin Lan nodded and the two of them trailed after Fei Bai Mu, soon catching up to her when she had almost reached Wu Min Huan.

Fei Bai Mu glanced at them, a bit worried that they might bring up the previous question but seeing how her disciple was just looking around, she put her mind at ease. Apparently, there were some other thoughts on his mind.

She turned back to the front and inclined her head toward Wu Min Huan. “Disciple Wu, the Elders of my sect and I, as well as my disciple, Hua Lin Yu, and his fiance would like to stay for a few days if it isn’t too much to ask of the Yun Zou Sect. Would you mind arranging some lodgings for us?”

Wu Min Huan’s eyes immediately sparkled when he saw Fei Bai Mu in front of him. “Sect Master Fei, you absolutely do not need to worry. The Yun Zou Sect is honored to have you here. In fact, accommodations have already been prepared in case you would like to stay here. If you want to, I can bring you over there immediately.”

Fei Bai Mu smiled, happy that this disciple of Sect Master Yuchi’s was this thorough in his preparations and able to deal with matters well. He was definitely a good successor as the Yun Zou Sect’s Sect Master. In that case, their Grandmaster wouldn’t need to worry about staying here and could follow them whenever he and his husband had enjoyed themselves enough. “Thank you very much. It would be great if you could do so. If it is inconvenient, I don’t mind being led over by anyone else though. I’m pretty sure that you will have a lot to do as the Sect Master’s head disciple.”

Wu Min Huan felt as if he was walking on clouds. The Sect Master of the Jian Yi Sect had actually recognized him as their Sect Master’s head disciple! Who could say something like that of themselves? “Ah, it definitely isn’t a bother. Sect Master Fei doesn’t need to worry about it.” He hurriedly motioned to the side, intending to lead them over himself.

Fei Bai Mu didn’t try to argue. She also knew what kind of status she had in both the Jian Yi Sect and in the cultivation world. This definitely wasn’t the first time she was in the presence of an excited disciple. In fact, even the Elders and some of the Sect Masters would sometimes treat her like this. What more a young disciple.

Xin Lan was also used to that kind of treatment so he didn’t even raise a brow when he saw Wu Min Huan behave like this. On the other hand, Hua Lin Yu looked at him curiously. He had grown up with Fei Bai Mu around so he never felt that she was somebody that special. She was just his Master who had always treated him kindly. He knew that she had the highest position in the Jian Yi Sect and he also understood that the sect was one of the most important ones in the cultivation world but he still couldn’t help but be amazed whenever he saw something like this happening. Even more so when it happened at the Yun Zou Sect he felt that people shouldn’t be that surprised since they had been working together before.

After just a moment, they reached the houses that had been prepared. Considering the status of the Jian Yi Sect, Wu Min Huan had arranged for them to stay on the Sect Master’s peak.

Xin Lan raised his brows when he saw that one of the houses they had been assigned was the one where Jinde and Leng Jin Yu had lived together at the very beginning after they finally met again in the mortal realm. This really was such a coincidence. He sighed to himself, and then pulled Hua Lin Yu over there, not explaining anything. In any case, maybe living in the house of a happy couple would bring them some luck as well.

Hua Lin Yu looked at him slightly confused, trying to figure out what was going on. “Is there something special about this house?”

Xin Lan glanced at him, originally wanting to pretend that nothing of the like was the case. Finally, he reconsidered though. To get Hua Lin Yu back, he had to try a bit harder. “I was staying in the Yun Zou Sect for a bit before. I happened to spend some time at this house so I just felt like taking it. If you have some other kind of preference, we can still change though.”

Hua Lin Yu shook his head. He actually didn’t care what kind of house they would be living in. In any case, it probably wouldn’t be for long, right? He looked around, and then couldn’t help but ask. “So, how long do you want to stay?”

Xin Lan reached out, gently brushing through Hua Lin Yu’s hair, a smile on his lips. “However long you want.” He raised a strand of his hair, silently pressing a kiss onto it. Here, away from the Hua family, things were a little easier. Maybe he would be able to make Hua Lin Yu decide already. It certainly would be great if he could do so.
