Xiang Yong reacted immediately. “Yi Zan, what may I do for you?”
“The Son of Heaven was abducted by the demon king. His Majesty has followed them and is likely fighting in the demon realm alone.”
There was only a slight pause before Xiang Yong reacted. “I’ll gather our warriors and lead them over. You and Qiang Wei …”
“We’ll continue to guard His Highness’ immortal body. Qiang Wei is trying to reach Fu Min.”
“Alright. I’ll leave that to you.”
“Mn.” Continue reading
Thanks to Shen Lu’s failure of intervening with the system once more, Su Yan and Nie Chang still stood there and were faced with the same list of tasks.
Even though Su Yan wanted to agree with Nie Chang and just do something else but … he also wanted to go home. And sooner or later they had to do these tasks anyway, hadn’t they? “How about … just taking that shower together?”
Nie Chang sighed. “I doubt you there are showers in this world.”
Su Yan pursed his lips. “Well … Nobody said it had to be a shower. We could just use a waterfall with spiritual water or something.”
Nie Chang glanced at him. Excuse him for being skeptical but wasn’t this the person that had refused to come out of bed before because the weather in August was too cold, even requiring his boyfriend to climb below the blanket and forcefully put some clothes onto his body before he could be dragged out of bed? And if he remembered correctly, then a certain person always adjusted the water to be at least lukewarm if not even outrageously hot. “Darling … Do you think someone will make the effort to heat the water up for you?” Continue reading
While Qiu Ling’s message was being related to Jin Ling, the preparations to rescue their crown prince from the clutches of the evil demon king also started in the Nine Heavens.
The Heavenly Emperor just waved at Qiang Yan. “Do what you must. Just bring me my son back. If that mortal reincarnation of his dies, I don’t mind. He has already done what he has to, after all. But nothing can happen to his soul.”
“Don’t worry, brother-in-law.” Qiang Yan nodded and stormed out of the palace, grabbing the next best Heavenly Guard he could get his hands on. “Go to the God of War’s palace and beat the war drums. All men are to gather immediately. We’re going to war with the demons.” Continue reading
Jing Yi covered his face with his hands. He regretted it now. When he saw those things in the secret realm, he shouldn’t have been so hasty to judge. And even if it had been true and there had been a Tian, how had he been able to waver so fast? That shouldn’t have happened.
“I’m sorry. I’m so sorry, Qiu Ling. It’s all my fault. If not for me being so indecisive …” He sighed again and lowered his hands, staring at the wall on the other side of the room.
“When I get out of here … Let’s continue where we left off. Let’s not wait any longer. Let’s just … get married like you always wanted and spend the rest of our lives together.”
Jing Yi smiled to himself and pulled his knees up to his chest again. Continue reading
Baili Chao left the Sect Master’s study in a complicated mood. His disciple, the savior of the Teng Yong Sect? Heavens! And he had still joked about his name having to do with the Black Warrior back when he took him in. Was fate playing a joke on him?
When he reached the hall he found Yun Bei Fen leaning against the wall with a dreamy expression, his gaze still trained on the white-clad man a couple of meters away. With the clearing around Mei Chao Bing, it was especially obvious. Thankfully, the disciples that were still there were discussing the mission and only peeked at the little beauty every now and then, none of them even thinking about at whom he might be peeking at.
Baili Chao shook his head and went over to fetch his disciple. Ah, if he told Yun Bei Fen that Sect Master Zhang wanted him to marry Mei Chao Bing to evade a disaster, he would be ecstatic. Well, ecstatic and probably indignant that the Sect Master would think Mei Chao Bing could become a problem. Mn, it was still better not to bring it up. Continue reading
Nie Chang finally cleared his throat. “Uhm, we’ve just arrived today, no need to be hasty. How about we try to find you something to eat first and then see what we can do?”
Su Yan looked at the mirror with a complicated gaze before turning to Nie Chang. He really wanted to accept but … “Didn’t we want to fulfill the tasks as soon as possible so we could return home?”
Nie Chang nodded. “That’s also true.”
The two of them turned back to the mirror, looking at the list strangely. Actually, there wasn’t much to see. The upcoming milestones were the same that Su Yan had seen before. It was just that … the ten types of kisses had been exchanged. As for what they had been exchanged … Neither Su Yan nor Nie Chang wanted to think too deeply about it. Continue reading
Jing Yi was left alone. He continued to sit on the bed and listened for Jin Ling’s steps to recede outside. Only when he was sure that he couldn’t hear him anymore, did he heave a sigh of relief.
Ah, at least he wouldn’t have to deal with this unreasonable person for the time being. He didn’t doubt that he would come back though. Before that could happen, he needed to get an idea of where he was and if there was a way to flee from here without being caught immediately.
Thinking about that he couldn’t help but sigh. “I should have asked Qiu Ling more questions. I would at least know a bit more about the demons then.” Continue reading
Jin Ling looked at the person that was obviously terrified. It shouldn’t be too hard to make this kind of person waver. After all, this wasn’t the true Son of Heaven and he didn’t remember everything. If he showed him a vulnerable part of him, then he would naturally soften and with a bit of time …
Jin Ling sighed again. “You’re afraid. I’m sorry. That’s not what I wanted.”
Jing Yi didn’t answer. He couldn’t trust this person. The less he talked, the better. Instead, he should try and find a way out of here. He glanced in all directions and noticed two doors. One was behind Jin Ling but the other one was on the other side of the room. If he managed to get there before him … Maybe he could find a way outside?
But no. This person lived here. He would know this place better than him. If he tried to flee but got lost, he would be caught in no time and dragged back here. And then this Jin Ling would have been warned and every new attempt to flee would become harder. He couldn’t risk that. Continue reading
Nie Chang patted his little darling’s head and pointed at the mirror again. “Alright, then let’s take a look at your experience bar?”
“Mn!” Su Yan beamed at his boyfriend as if his previous guilt and sadness had never existed. He even continued to smile when he turned to the Lovely Writing System. “System, show us my progress!”
The system reacted promptly and the pink progress bar with the row of numbers below it appeared again.
“Kya! Look at that!” Su Yan grabbed his boyfriend’s arm and laughed, pointing at the pink bar. He had no idea how much progress he had really made but it was a lot! Much more than the practice tasks had gotten him at least.
Nie Chang nodded with a smile and calculated. “That should be almost one-third of the experience points you need to get to the next level.”
Su Yan blinked. “Huh? How do you know?”
Nie Chang motioned at the mirror. Continue reading
While a certain couple tried to reestablish the mood, Zhong Jing Yi finally opened his eyes. The first thing he saw was an unfamiliar pair of legs clad in a violet robe. He blinked. Just what was going on here?
The last thing he remembered was that a man had appeared that claimed to be Tian but he hadn’t felt even an ounce of familiarity from him. Whoever he had been, he definitely wasn’t his past life’s lover. Especially since he was almost certain by now that Qiu Ling had said the truth. He really was the king of the dragon race and he had indeed been the one he had fallen in love with back when he was Jing He. He didn’t fully understand the ins and outs but that could wait until later. For now … Continue reading
