Leng Jin Yu stopped at once when his transmission stone started to pulse. He took it out with hasty movements and imbued his spiritual energy. Could it be that Jinde had already managed to reach the Liu He Alliance? Was he safe already?
He looked at the transmission stone with anticipation but the face that finally greeted him was that of the God of War, Qiang Yan. Leng Jin Yu’s expression fell. So it wasn’t Jinde. Either he hadn’t managed to reach the Liu He Alliance at all or it wasn’t convenient for him to reach out to him. Either way, he’d need to continue to worry. Until he saw Jinde for himself and heard him say that everything had turned out well, he wouldn’t be able to rest his worries.
“Leng Jin Yu?” Qiang Yan raised his brows. He hadn’t missed the disappointment in Leng Jin Yu’s eyes. Just what had happened? Looking at him closer, it also seemed as if something was wrong. His skin was pale and there were dark shadows under his eyes. “Did something happen? Continue reading
While the Heavenly Empress wondered about her son’s well-being, Qiang Yan finally contacted his own son. The transmission stone showed Bai Mu’s apparition after only a moment. The two of them stared at each other, both hesitating for a spell.
Qiang Yan cleared his throat and waved. “Uh, I went to the Temple of Medicine and asked about the pill. They said that they can refine it as long as we provide the ingredients and the recipe.”
Bai Mu just continued to stare at him. Continue reading
Qiang Yan waved. “There’s no need to worry about that. I do not have the recipe with me but I know somebody who has it. It’s just a matter of bringing it here.”
The God of Medicine raised his brows. It seemed the God of War had come prepared. “Well, then you should first organize the ingredients and the recipe. How much the compensation is will depend on how difficult that recipe is to follow. Anyway, I doubt you’ll have difficulties getting what the Temple of Medicine wants in return.”
Qiang Yan nodded. Indeed, this shouldn’t be a problem. As one of the major gods of the Nine Heavens, there weren’t many things he lacked. And even if it was something that needed to be organized first, it wouldn’t be too difficult. After all, this was only a pill for a mortal. The difficulty of refining it should be much lesser than that of refining a pill for a god. “Then I thank you for your help in advance. I will go and organize everything immediately.” Continue reading
“I can drink …” Xiang Yu unsteadily lifted his cup and pushed it into Xin Lan’s face. “At least as much as you!”
Xin Lan peered over the rim of the cup and his lips curled up. “That one is empty.”
“Ah?” Xiang Yu took the cup back and stared into it. It seemed … he was right. It was empty. He pushed it back at Xin Lan. “Then … let’s fill it again!”
“The jar is also empty.”
“Then let’s open another one! I can still drink!” Continue reading
“My love …” Qiu Ling cooed and slid onto the seat next to Jing He, waving a bottle of wine. “How about sharing a cup with your future husband?”
Jing He gazed at the bottle and slowly raised his gaze to Qiu Ling’s eyes. “I don’t know if that is such a good idea.”
“Just one cup, my love.” Qiu Ling smiled and raised his brows.
Jing He gazed at him, his heart fluttering. How could he reject what the man he loved wanted? If it was this important to Qiu Ling … He nodded. “Alright. One cup shouldn’t be too much. It isn’t a strong wine, is it?” Continue reading
At the same time, the God of War, Qiang Yan, reached the Temple of Medicine in the Nine Heavens. He stopped at the door and took a deep breath, straightening his robe that had become crinkled on the way over from the dragon realm. Only then did he go to the study of the God of Medicine that was facing the giant herb garden in the middle of the temple.
Just like the God of Love, the God of Medicine was already fairly old. His hair had already turned gray and his face spotted several wrinkled lines. He also carried himself with an air that made other people instinctively think of an old scholar.
When he heard steps by the door, the God of Medicine turned to look up and couldn’t help but raise his bushy brows. “The God of War? Now, this is a surprise! Come in, have a seat.” Continue reading
The disciples of the Chun Feng turned around when the Liu He Alliance’s disciple returned. When they saw the person that had actually entered the pavilion in front of him, they couldn’t help but gape. Was this really Alliance Head Hua? Just who had they picked up in that small town and delivered here?! An Alliance Head would actually come down to greet him on his own?
Jinde couldn’t help but smile when he got up. It seemed his husband’s reputation had helped him quite a lot. There really wouldn’t be any questions asked just because he sent something over that had to do with this Alliance Head. Ah, who could have known that a single teacup would have such an effect? He stepped forward and cupped his fists, slightly bowing to the man. “Greetings, Alliance Head Hua. I’m grateful that you’re willing to receive me.” Continue reading
Oh, wow, here’s yet another announcement to be made: In two days, it’ll be the Qixi Festival which is basically Chinese Valentine’s Day. In honor of the occasion, I’ve prepared a little something for all of you (yes, all of you! No Patreon-exclusive-extra this time 😊): It’s an Oh. My. Fate?! Special that will feature Qiu Ling and Jing He and – drum roll please! 😏 – include a little bonus about Xiang Yu and Xin Lan.
Here is the synopsis of the story:
When the stars are glittering in the sky and a warm breeze caresses our skin, let us indulge in wishful thinking for just one night. A night of temptation we will never forget.
My love, won’t you have one cup of wine with me?
I’ll post the special as two chapters and link to them from the OMF Extras-page. If you’re subscribed to my website, you should also get an email as usual when I post. If you’re reading on the other sites (like Tapas or Scribble Hub), I’ve decided to post it as what was previously “A Hairy Situation” (and what will be renamed “Oh. My. Extra?!” in a bit) so that I’ll be able to collect all the future extras in one place to make fiding them easier. 😊
The disciple didn’t know what to say for a moment. Well, at the very least, this person had told him the name of their sect. If he remembered right, then Alliance Head Hua had sent somebody there a while ago. It wouldn’t be too strange for one of their disciples to come here. Maybe this had even been agreed upon previously. “So Alliance Head Hua is awaiting you?”
Jinde sighed. Naturally, that Alliance Head had no idea that he would be coming. If this disciple sent a message saying that the person he wanted to see was here, then who knew if he would accept? Jinde untied the bag holding the teacup and handed it to the disciple. “He isn’t awaiting me but I’d ask you to show this to him and ask if he would be willing to see me.” He stepped back, indicating that he would wait on the path for the time being.
The disciple nodded and turned to the man that had come over with Jinde. Continue reading
In the end, neither of them could figure the other out and the group finally left in the afternoon with Jinde still covering his eyes and hair with the veiled hat. The group walked over to the edge of the town and the person that had talked to Jinde before took out something that looked like a dried leaf. When he imbued his spiritual energy, the shriveled up surface turned back to a brighter green color and grew until it was big enough to seat all of them. The man motioned at the leaf and gave Jinde a smile. “This is our sect’s spiritual artifact. Get on and have a look around. We won’t need long to get to the Liu He Alliance.
Jinde nodded and followed the other men onto the leaf. He sat down cross-legged and indeed took a look around when the leaf rose into the air and departed from the town, traveling further to the north. Continue reading
