OMF V4C77 Maybe Then

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>


Xin Lan closed his eyes and took a deep breath before opening them again. „Very well. If that is what you think, then maybe I should return to that roadside.“ He gave a short, derisive laugh. „Ah, I did everything His Majesty asked me to. I tolerated you all those years even though you were being so disrespectful to His Majesty. I looked the other way even when I found out just how deep that disrespect went.
And when His Majesty asked me to go to the demon realm after his death to keep an eye on you so you wouldn’t suffer too much I still did it! But if His Highness thinks that the master’s dog shouldn’t be kept, then it will gladly return to the roadside. It would still be better than having to stay at yours.“
Jin Ling snorted. „Then go if you want to go! Don’t stay here and waste my time with your words!“ Weiterlesen

OMF V4C76 If Not for Him

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>


Thanks to the time flowing differently in the mortal and immortal realms Jin Ling had already spent a few days in the capital to have a look at how Xiao Li was doing. Well, there wasn’t much to say about that.
He had found out next to nothing but it was still quite amusing to see his eyes nearly blazing with hatred whenever that human woman he had had to marry appeared. It had been especially grave when his newly wedded wife met Jin Ling and couldn’t help but regret a bit that she had already married. After all, even with his copper-colored hair changed to a more human appearance Jin Ling could be called inhumanly handsome.
Xiao Li didn’t take that nicely. He might not like her but which man could stand it if his wife was eying another? And that even in front of him? The man in question might be his king but he still didn’t want his own wife to show that obvious that she didn’t think of him as highly as of a man that was a total stranger to her. Wasn’t that questioning his worth? Weiterlesen

„Thank you.“ Jinde reached out and his fingers lightly touched Xin Lan’s skin. „I know you never liked Chun Yin and his child. It must be hard doing me this favor. But you know it wasn’t entirely his fault. We were both played by Jian Heng.“
„It was a set-up, yes, but he jumped into the trap himself. Who asked him to betray you? It was his own decision to sleep with that woman.“
Jinde retracted his hand and turned around, slowly sinking back onto the seat in front of the table. Ah, yes, thinking back to all the things that had gone wrong that had always been what hurt the most. The fact that he had willingly slept with her, willingly stayed with her, and in the end … he even willingly chose her over him.
Xin Lan knelt down beside him again. He was tempted to take his hand and plead with him to forget about that man but he knew better than to actually do that. „I shouldn’t have brought it up. I’m just afraid that you might expect too much. He didn’t stay true to you back then. Who can say if it will be different this time around?“ Weiterlesen

OMF V4C74 Always at Your Side

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>


Jinde felt a pang in his heart at Xin Lan’s words. Right, he hadn’t thought enough about it. He had only thought about himself and his pain upon losing Chun Yin back then. He hadn’t really considered Xin Lan’s feelings even though he had known him for so long.
„I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have kept it from you.“
Xin Lan smiled slightly. „It’s not a problem. I’m just happy that you’re still alive. Whatever was before … it doesn’t matter.“
Jinde nodded and gently stroked Xin Lan’s cheek. „How have you been these years? Jin Ling …“
„I accompanied him as you had wished.“
„Did he make a lot of trouble for you?“ Weiterlesen

OMF V4C73 The Worst Thing that Happened to Me

„Stop with this nonsense, Xin Lan, you’re scaring the humans.“
Xin Lan’s heart seemed to skip a beat when he heard this oh so familiar, calm voice. The words were scolding him but the tone seemed to indulge him. His temper that had flared up and unconsciously called up a tempest was instantly soothed. The lightning and the thunder stopped and the clouds slowly dispersed. For a moment, the people from the Yun Zou Sect could see a dragon completely covered in silver-colored scales. Then the dragon sped up into the sky, turned in a circle and suddenly vanished.
All the disciples looked at the sect master who in turn looked at the Grandmaster. Was it really over? All of them couldn’t believe it.
Zhangsun Xun Yi turned to look at the house where that person had taken up residence for now and sighed. He hadn’t fought but once again he had sacrificed himself for their sect. What if this person was an enemy of his? What if this would bring him trouble? Well, he couldn’t do anything but trust in him. He wouldn’t be able to defeat whoever had come here anyway. Weiterlesen

Xin Lan reached the gates of the Yun Zou Sect after only a few minutes. His gaze swept over the valley and the peaks with their houses and the mortals busying themselves and he frowned.
Where exactly was his master? He couldn’t feel him from where he was right now. Had Qiu Ling lied to him after all? But no, that wasn’t likely. The life of his beloved still depended on him and in contrast to his father Qiu Ling was serious about the person he loved. He wouldn’t risk anything as long as his beloved was involved.
His master had to be here.
Xin Lan closed his eyes and extended his senses again. His presence swept over the Yun Zou Sect startling the disciples and elders into looking up. They couldn’t see anyone though. Weiterlesen

While Jing Yi observed how Jing He had tried to make sure that his lover wouldn’t miss out on anything with him the person in question finally arrived at the Leyuan region with Xin Lan.
Qiu Ling felt a little torn. Yes, he wanted to get his Jing He back as soon as possible but he also felt a bit bad about selling the old geezer out. If he could, he really would have liked to warn him that such a troublesome person had found out that he was still alive. Unfortunately, Xin Lan didn’t leave him out of his sight and he would take it out on Jing He if Qiu Ling really tried something. Thus, he couldn’t do anything. Well, the old geezer would be able to cope with it somehow. Probably.
When Qiang Wei saw the two of them arrive his expression brightened. „Your Majesty, Senior —“ Weiterlesen

OMF V4C70 What Should Be His Will Be His

The memory diffused as if he had reached the end. Jing Yi surfaced from the ruminant state he had been in and blinked his eyes. He had seen so many things, he didn’t even know where to start with processing them.
The worst thing was that these memories didn’t seem to follow the course of his previous life. The things he had seen earlier, outside of his inner self seemed to have happened long after the things he had witnessed just now. After all, they had already been lovers in those early memories while this just now had obviously been from a time when nothing was certain yet between them.
The only thing Jing Yi knew with certainty was: Jing He had loved that Tian very, very much. Not just seeing him, even thinking about him had made his heart beat faster. It really was a pity that their circumstances had been so bad. Well, if he was honest, he still didn’t really understand what about them had been bad. Weiterlesen

„Rejecting?“ Qiang Yan turned to look at him, obviously stunned. „Why … Why would you do that? I thought …“
He didn’t finish the sentence but Jing He could imagine what he wanted to say: I thought you liked him. So it turned out he was that transparent.
„Father doesn’t like him.“
„Well, your mother likes him …“
„It’s a pity then. I can’t fulfill both of their wishes.“ Jing He looked away. Ah, he didn’t want to see his uncle’s gaze right now. He didn’t want to see anyone. He’d much rather be alone and think of that person since there was nothing else he could do.
„Jing He, have you ever thought …“ Qiang Yan sighed. „Look, this is about choosing your spouse. Whether your father or mother is satisfied with the choice isn’t really important, is it? You’re the one who’ll spend his life with that person. You’re the one who should be happy. Weiterlesen

OMF V4C68 Mending His Irresponsible Behavior

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>


Jing He came out of his thoughts and looked up at his father with a sigh. He never wanted to see him angry again or hear the worry in his uncle’s voice or feel the hot tears of his mother on his skin. Even now, he still felt that he had done the right thing back then when he changed his behavior.
And now he had to do the right thing, too. He had to reject this man that his father wouldn’t accept. He had to make sure that he wouldn’t come and find him again. But he also had to make sure that he was tactful enough not to endanger the relationship between their races.
It was a pity but … what could he do? This had been going on for far too long. Just a few days should have been enough time for him to figure it out but he had actually let things drag on until almost two years had gone by. It was no wonder that the gods had started talking and that his uncle would joke about it and that his father would react like this. It was his fault. He hadn’t reacted the way he should. He had … almost made another mistake. Weiterlesen
