In the end, the three people agreed that it would be best to go and see Jinde and Leng Jin Yu to talk things through with them. In any case, they were also the ones who were in danger of being found out. So they should make a choice of their own. If they felt that it was enough for them to just temporarily alter their appearances to go out, then the Ye Zhong Order wouldn’t bother about this any longer and just help the Yun Zou Sect wrap up the case. If they wanted a long-term solution instead, then they would try and think of another way.
They went to the array that led to the dimension where the two sweethearts were, and Yuchi Bing Xia couldn’t help but feel a little embarrassed. One of the people on the other side was his own disciple that he had taken into the sect. He probably shouldn’t feel that there was anything strange about going to see him. But … this disciple had just gotten married today. The kind of thing these two would be busy with right now … it really wasn’t hard to imagine. Since this was the case, maybe they should just come back tomorrow.
Fei Bai Mu glanced at Yuchi Bing Xia and had a faint guess in her heart just what was going through his mind. She smiled and then stepped forward and into the array, letting the Grandmaster decide himself whether he and his husband wanted to see her or not.
The Elder of the Ye Zhong Order glanced at Yuchi Bing Xia and then also stepped into the array, waiting together with Fei Bai Mu. In any case, she was quite intrigued by this story. She at least wanted to know what exactly was up with it.
Yuchi Bing Xia sighed and then followed the two of them into the array.
Inside the dimension, Leng Jin Yu raised his head, his gaze complicated. “We got some visitors: Sect Master Fei, Sect Master Yuchi, and a woman who seems to be a demon hunter. She should be from the … Ye Zhong Order.”
Jinde who was currently in a just half-dressed state gave him a look and then sighed deeply. “It is really such a bother to be married to an important person. Even our wedding night can’t just be enjoyed but will be interrupted.”
Leng Jin Yu glanced at him and shook his head while tidying up his own clothes. “I find it quite strange that the person telling me this is the former dragon king of all people. Clearly, your position is quite a bit higher than mine if you want to think like this.”
Jinde also fixed his appearance, even though he was quite reluctant to do so. “Ah, the important part in that is the word ‘former’ so you should focus on that.”
“I would, but then you should also keep in mind that neither am I currently the Grandmaster of the Jian Yi Sect. I am just a disciple of the Yun Zou Sect.”
“Not for long anymore.” Jinde shook his head and then waved. “In any case, just go and receive them. I’ll wait here.” Right now, he might not need to hide anymore, but it was still better to let Leng Jin Yu handle these things.
His husband nodded, but still leaned down again and kissed his temple. “I’ll try to keep it short.”
Jinde laughed and shook his head while he pushed him off. “Don’t kid yourself. Everybody knows that we got married today even if our ceremony was so rudely ended. They wouldn’t come here if it wasn’t about something important.”
Leng Jin Yu’s gaze turned serious and he nodded. Indeed. Especially today, nobody would just come to disturb them. Unless … something major had happened. After their wedding and Jing Yi’s ascension, he really wondered just what that might be. Well, he’d find out in a bit.
He casually activated the array, while he himself went to the door of the palace, to greet the three people.
When Elder Suo saw Leng Jin Yu, she couldn’t help but look at him intently. She had seen him at the wedding ceremony of course but since she wasn’t actually that interested in the festivities and had only come to represent her sect, she hadn’t paid too much attention. Now that she saw him close up, she had a strange feeling though. This person … was he really just a disciple of the Yun Zou Sect? Maybe this dimension was partly at fault but the way he carried himself suggested that he was an extraordinary person. So maybe he was that lover who was fancied but the demon king? There were all kinds of thoughts rushing through her head, but she said stayed quiet and didn’t voice even a single one of them.
Yuchi Bing Xia shot Leng Jin Yu an apologetic gaze. “Ah Jin, I’m sorry. I know it’s your wedding day today but something happened outside. I’m afraid we’ll have to bother you and your husband.”
Leng Jin Yu just smiled faintly and motioned inside. “I already thought so. Why don’t you come in?”
Yuchi Bing Xia nodded and the three people followed him over to a room where Jinde had casually placed a tea set already so Leng Jin Yu could receive the guests. He himself had left though, feeling that he would just let his husband deal with this matter.
Fei Bai Mu glanced around, realizing what was likely going on. “What about your husband? I think that this matter will also be of interest to him.”
Leng Jin Yu raised his brows but nodded. “I will go and get him. Please take a seat already.” He inclined his head and then left, giving Jinde who had already appeared outside a meaningful look.
“Looks like it is something even more major than what you thought.”
Leng Jin Yu nodded and reached out, taking his hand. “Whatever it is, I’m sure we can deal with it.”
With that, the two of them went back inside, sitting down at the table with the other three people, and quietly listened while Yuchi Bing Xia explained.
