Blue butterfly clicked her tongue. That really sounded like a good thing but he really had guts telling her before that she should get straight to the matter at hand instead of making him play guessing games and then pulling something like this! “You know, you could’ve led with that.”
Tong Chen’s smile brightened and, in the end, he couldn’t help but chuckle a bit. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to frighten you. It was just that I wanted to explain why I’ve arrived at this conclusion. I thought you should have the full picture.”
Blue butterfly clicked her tongue once again, not even wanting to look at him for a moment. She got up and then paced up and down next to his platform, shaking her head incessantly. “Changing the world that we know … I wonder what kind of thing would need to happen for that.”
Tong Chen gave a hum but didn’t answer. If he was able to tell her, he would’ve done so long ago. Either way, he might have a few guesses but they were really nothing more than that, guesses. There was no way that he would say such a thing at a time like this when everything was up in the air but seemed perilous no matter which way you looked at it.
No, even saying what he had already said might’ve been too much. After all, it wasn’t like he could guarantee anything. If he was wrong and he gave her hope for no reason at all, he would also feel bad about it. After all, they all knew how much blue butterfly liked traveling in the real world.
Yes, those dreams of her were very convenient but it just wasn’t the same. Deep down, she longed to be like everyone else. But then, weren’t they all doing that? If he could be a regular person who wasn’t forced to watch what would happen in the future, he would also make the change.
While yes, his ability had allowed him to find the three best friends he could have ever made in this world, he would still give a lot to not have had to see most of the other things. But then, you could hardly choose your own fate, could you? No, that just wasn’t how it worked. He had accepted that long ago, even though he was still sometimes dreaming that maybe things could be different.
After staying quiet for a while, Tong Chen got up. “It should be night already. Are you going to pick up that small disciple and his senior martial brother?”
Blue butterfly looked at him and slowly raised her brows. “If I’m going to pick up that small disciple and his senior martial brother, why are you getting up?”
Tong Chen smiled brightly, lighting up his features. “Well, originally, I wanted to stay out of this but now you made me curious. I want to have a look at how that Zhi Guan is teaching his little junior. Maybe there is really something that I can see from his behavior. That sure would be interesting, don’t you think so?”
Blue butterfly pursed her lips but, in the end, she still had to say that she was indeed curious as well. “In that case, we should really go and have a look.”
Tong Chen nodded and then quietly waited until blue butterfly’s breathing vanished, indicating that she had disappeared into her dreamscape. Then, he emptied his mind, sharpening his own focus until he was finally in the right state. Immediately, he felt her pull him into her dreamscape.
He couldn’t help but give a hum when he left the real world behind. “You know, after doing this again just now, I’m even more curious about him. What kind of incredible focus is required to enter a dreamscape just like that? I can’t even begin to imagine.”
Blue butterfly scoffed and walked ahead of him, taking a peek at his expression. “And you’re still saying that you don’t think he has an ability. Are you sure he doesn’t? If it’s that incredible, then maybe there’s more to it.”
Tong Chen gave a hum but shook his head in the end. “It could be but no, I think it’s unlikely. But anyway, are we not here now to have a look at him? Maybe we will be able to see something we previously missed.”
Blue butterfly nodded and then made her way over to the border region.
At this time, whether it was Yun Bei Fen, Mei Chao Bing, or Zhi Guan, neither of the three of them was sleeping so she couldn’t just use one of their dreams. But then, that shouldn’t be too much of a problem. Anyway, Zhi Guan could enter by himself at a moment’s notice and when it came to that little disciple, he had already been in a dreamscape before so she hoped that things would also be a bit easier for him.
Not to mention that they should first check up on that Luo Lin anyway. After all, they still hadn’t even finished ascertaining whether he had an ability or not. Before they did that, they probably shouldn’t spend too much time on his martial brothers. After all, he was the one with the highest probability of it being true. That was where they should focus their efforts.
Soon enough, the two of them arrived in the border region and stepped out of the dreamscape in Elder Baili’s courtyard, not wanting to alarm anyone else. Even though most disciples wouldn’t be able to recognize them, it was better if they didn’t take any risks.
In any case, not to mention the disciples of their own sect, who knew if there weren’t any demonic practitioners around? So the less they appeared in public, the better. Then at the very least, they wouldn’t give those guys any indication of what was going on behind the scenes. Because at this time, they really couldn’t allow themselves to leave traces of the few advantages that they had in hand.
