Qiu Ling looked up at the person quietly talking to him. This was important. He knew that. This was about his Jing He, after all. But his Jing He was gone … He had been taken from him again. Once again, they were separated and he didn’t know when they would see each other again.
He didn’t want to believe it but could it be … Jing He had been right back then? Were they really a pair of star-crossed lovers like Tian and Xing? Would they forever be unable to be together? Would they always be separated like this? Would they never marry like he wanted them to?
He didn’t want that. He didn’t want to be without him. His Jing He … He was the only important thing in his life. The one he wanted to spent all his remaining years with. How should he go on without him? Continue reading
When Leng Jin Yu left the house, he saw Qiu Ling standing among the bamboo trees, not moving at all. He couldn’t help but frown. The demon king had turned up. Why was he just standing there? Shouldn’t he have some kind of reaction?
He looked for Zhong Jing Yi to get some kind of clue what this was about only to find out that the person in question wasn’t there. Leng Jin Yu felt a sinking feeling in his heart. Don’t tell him …
He made his way over to Qiu Ling and stopped some steps away from him. “Longjun?” He didn’t get a reaction. Most likely, this was really as bad as he had thought. Leng Jin Yu gulped and stepped closer, reaching out to the person left in the bamboo grove. He lightly touched his arm and called out once again. “Longjun? Where is His Highness?”
Qiu Ling turned around, his expression lost. “He … He took him away.”
“The demon king?” Continue reading
The person in question was lying on the floor right now, looking at his newly-wedded husband with raised brows.
“Might I —”
Jinde clasped a hand over his mouth before he could say another word. He tilted his head and listened for any sounds outside. Nothing. It seemed he had already left.
Jinde closed his eyes and took a relieved sigh. He had honestly thought his heart was going to stop right now. How could that bear child turn up this unexpectedly?
Leng Jin Yu’s brows raised even further. Just what was happening here? He didn’t dare ask though. Jinde had looked quite spooked just now. He didn’t want to aggravate him further.
Jinde’s golden eyes opened and he took his hand from Leng Jin Yu’s mouth. “I’m sorry. That … That was … Ah, forget it.” Continue reading
A young man dressed in a green robe approached the gates of the Yun Zou Sect on his flying sword. Just a meter short of it, he swooshed down, kept the weapon and walked up to the two disciples guarding the entrance.
He cupped his fists with a smile. “Greetings. This one is You Xin Ru from the Liu He Alliance. I came on the orders of my Master, Alliance Head Hua, to deliver something to Grandmaster Zhangsun.” He took out a scroll and showed it to the disciples but didn’t open it.
The two disciples exchanged a glance. “For Grandmaster Zhangsun?”
You Xin Ru nodded. “Yes.” Continue reading
Just like back in the night before Jing He descended for his trial, the two lovers weren’t on the same page at all.
Jing Yi separated from Qiu Ling and his heels touched the ground again but he didn’t look away. Right now, he felt happy. Way happier than he had felt in the last couple of years when they had been separated whether it was by space or by his own doing.
Realizing that Qiu Ling had indeed to be Tian made this so much easier but right now he felt that even if he wasn’t, even if there was still another person waiting for him somewhere, he should stay with him nonetheless. Because Qiu Ling was the man he had fallen in love with and whatever had happened in a past life couldn’t change that. His feelings from this life wouldn’t just disappear and the man he had loved in his past life wouldn’t be anything more than a stranger. So regardless of who Tian was, Qiu Ling was the one he wanted to stay with. Continue reading
Qiu Ling ran out of the door and toward where he felt his beloved’s presence. He finally saw Jing Yi at the edge of a bamboo grove. The sleeves of his white robe were fluttering in the wind and his black hair swaying in the breeze behind his back. With the desolate air about him, he looked surprisingly much like Jing He.
Qiu Ling accelerated his steps and just like Jinde had said he wrapped Jing Yi into his arms. Ah, it seemed he had forgotten to call out to him before! Well, it should still be effective to do it now. Continue reading
Back in the Yun Zou Sect, Leng Jin Yu took a deep breath. He wouldn’t respond to that. He would just ignore it and get back to the point. “Longjun.”
“Don’t Longjun me! Isn’t it true?!”
“You’re not even listening to me!”
Qiu Ling wanted to interrupt again when he noticed that Jing Yi had stopped struggling in his arms and had instead turned especially still. He looked down only to find his beloved stare at his lapel with a contemplative gaze. Qiu Ling drew his brows together and tried looking at his robe. Uh … It seemed normal? Continue reading
While the men inside the house were still confronting each other, another person outside leaned against the trunk of a tree not far from it and took out something that looked like a black mirror. He imbued some spiritual energy and a handsome face appeared on the black surface.
“What is it?”
“Something happened and I thought you’d like to know about it.”
“Oh? I thought that Zhong Jing Yi and his lover had left?”
“Mn, I thought so too but the two of them returned just now. Other than that, two other people came to the sect. They were looking quite strange. One of them had light-colored hair while the other’s was red. They were standing in front of the door to senior martial brother Yu’s house.” Continue reading
The two people leaning over the rim of the tub froze with their lips just a hair’s breadth apart. They looked at each other and turned to the door in unison only to see Qiu Ling with Jing Yi on his arms staring unabashedly at them, taking in the whole scene.
Qiu Ling blinked when he felt that he had seen enough. “Is this some kind of weird foreplay? Have you started yet? If not, then wait for a while and help me first. Jing He’s soul is cracked. I need a way to repair it. It shouldn’t be painful though. Oh, and I want one that will really heal everything. You should know one, shouldn’t you?”
Leng Jin Yu’s lips twitched. Suddenly, he seemed to understand what Jinde had meant when he called Longjun a bear child. This guy had no decency at all! Couldn’t he see that Jinde was still naked?! Continue reading
“It’s that bad?”
Jinde turned his head and smiled at his lover. “What do you think? After what happened with his parents, he didn’t dare return to the capital. He lived out there in the wilderness, all alone. He had to deal with his father’s death, with the fact that he himself killed his mother, with his mixed heritage that finally showed after killing her. There was a lot on his plate and nobody to help him through it.
“And that is only what I know about. That child didn’t talk about it much but I guess there are some other things that happened along the way. He won’t confide in me though. After all, there is still a part of him that wants to believe that things would have turned out differently if it wasn’t for me. If his father hadn’t loved me or if I hadn’t become king, then maybe his life could have been different. He might not say so but that is what he thinks nonetheless.”
“But —” Continue reading
