Still, there's no need to fight over it like this right?
Still, there's no need to fight over it like this right?
Duan Yao patiently explained: "I really didn't learn the Bodhi Heart Sutra . " Initially he wanted to practice, because it was said to be one of the strongest skills in the pugilistic world currently, just the sound of it is imposing; but no matter what, Teacher refuses to agree to it, and so he's already regrettably resigned to it .
The lady callously laughed: "Nan Mo Ya has said before, he passed the Bodhi Heart Sutra to you; unless he dares to lie to me?"
As expected . . . . Duan Yao said sincerely: "If there's a day where Teacher doesn't lie to people, then that's the day they see a ghost . " Out of all people to trust, you decided to believe him?
"Stop saying so much drivel!" The lady's voice suddenly grew louder in volume, "No matter what, I will still bring you back to Tian Sha sect today!"
"What kind of sect is this again?" Duan Yao has never heard of it before, and asked softly .
"She's Lan Ji, she has a senior - junior relationship with Lan Jiu Mei of Zi Wei Men . " Duan Bai Yue said .
Duan Yao still doesn't understand; Zi Wei Men is a poison sect in Xi Nan, although their relations with Xi Nan manor can't be considered good, but it's not bad either; he himself even personally went a few times to buy Gu, so he's on good terms with Lan Jiu Mei, but he has never heard before that she has a senior or junior . But even if there's a relationship, what does it have to do with himself?
He met with a disaster for no reason .
"Even if Yao-er has really learned the Bodhi Heart Sutra, he still can't help sect leader gain the skill; why force him so aggressively?" Duan Bai Yue said .
Duan Yao felt tight in his chest, he really hasn't learned it before .
"Whether if there's use or not, I can only know after bringing him back . " Something flashed in Lan Ji's hand; a red eyed venomous snake flew over, spitting; before Duan Bai Yue can react, Duan Yao has already caught seven inches of the snake, hit it a couple of times, breaking its spine, and curled it up and placed it into his cloth bag .
A fortune has flown over; this snake is quite expensive .
Duan Bai Yue clicked his tongue: "After a year of not seeing you, sect leader Lan is still as disreputable as ever . "
Lan Ji, in a rage, came forward furiously to attack; the fighters of Xi Nan manor also fought resolutely with the disciples of Tian Sha sect; pandemonium ensued in the forest; Duan Yao firmly stepped two steps back to look at the scene — if they were fighting using martial arts honestly, Duan Bai Yue will be at an advantage, and there's no need to worry . But now that he has internal injuries, the fight now has now no meaning whatsoever; and so after the two parties exchanged a few hundred blows, Lan Ji only felt a coldness on the left side of her neck, not knowing what soft and slimy thing licked her face .
"Gu!" A purple toad jumped onto the floor, and quickly hid behind Duan Yao .
Lan Ji's expression changed .
"You better go back quickly to remove the poison . " Duan Yao advised kindly, "Your face will rot . "
There's no women who can stand these four words; even a lady from a demonic sect is also no exception .
Lan Ji disappeared almost instantly .
"Are you alright?" Duan Yao sighed with relief, and helped Duan Bai Yue to sit by the fire .
Duan Bai Yue shook his head: "It will be alright after I adjust my qi . "
"All because of that damn old man!" Duan Yao thought and got angry, "Don't know what kind of stupid martial arts he taught you either!" To think he even practiced till he almost got mad .
Duan Bai Yue smiled, and ate a pill .
Duan Yao continued to complain: "If I knew this would happen, I would have found another Teacher instead . " Let's not talk about whether his martial arts will be good or not first; the person's character can also be ignored; but at the very least he mustn't con his disciple!
"Seems like Lan Ji absolutely wants to bring you back to Tian Sha sect . " Duan Bai Yue said, "You should be careful during this journey . "
"You see, this is caused by Teacher again, everything was fine and dandy, then he ran to a woman from a demonic sect and told her I know the Bodhi Heart Sutra!" Mentioning this issue, Duan Yao got even angrier, "And the person who practiced it is actually you!"
Duan Bai Yue smiled calmly: "That's right, it's this king . "
"Then do you know why, she really wants to bring me back to the sect?" Duan Yao asked .
Duan Bai Yue replied: "Because she wants to marry you . "
Duan Yao: " . . . . . . "
After Duan Nian and the other subordinates heard this, they were also shocked .
Wants to marry . . . .
Duan Bai Yue waved his hand in front of him: "Now that you hear that you are getting a wife, so you struck dumb by happiness?"
Duan Yao, unable to believe it, pointed at his own nose: "But I'm just thirteen . "
"Thirteen is not that young anyway . " Duan Bai Yue patted his head, "After two years it can also be used . "
Duan Yao: " . . . . . "
Duan Yao: " . . . . . "
Duan Yao: " . . . . . "
Explain your words, what do you mean, after two years, then it can also be used .
Duan Nian's eyes are full of pity .
To have a brother like his master, it's truly dubious .
Although his words were mocking, Duan Bai Yue still increased the protection on the upcoming journey; after peacefully rushing about ten day's worth of journey, Qian Yue city is in their sights; but Duan Bai Yue sent down orders to turn back, and to return on the road they came on .
. . . . . .
Duan Nian reminded Duan Yao, the lord's mood doesn't seem to be good now, it's better for young master to not get caught in it .
Duan Yao, teary eyed, what does his mood have to do with me, I only want to find an inn and rent a room, so I can get a nice sleep!
"Then where are we going?"
Duan Nian answered: "Qiong Hua city, it's not that far from here, just bear with this for two more days, young master . "
Duan Yao unwillingly agreed, his heart full of indignation .
In Qiong Hua valley, Ye Jin is currently squatting in the yard, separating the herbs . Chu Yuan sat by his side, and casually picked up a ginseng root .
"Eat it, it's good for the body . " Ye Jin said .
Chu Yuan chewed twice: "It's sweet . "
"You really ate it?" Ye Jin sincerely looked into his eyes, "I lied, it's poisonous . "
Chu Yuan looked at him and laughed .
Ye Jin pouted,: "When are you leaving?"
"It should be within these few days . " Chu Yuan said, "Counting the days, it should approaching . "
Ye Jin also took a herb to chew on .
After a period of silence, Chu Yuan tried asking: "Why don't Xiao Jin go back with us to the palace?"
"In your dreams!" Ye Jin rejected instantly, "I still have things to do a few days later . "
Chu Yuan thought for a while: "Are you going to Ri Yue sect?"
Ye Jin's eyes widened: "What am I doing, going to Ri Yue sect?"
"It's just a guess . " Chu Yuan said, "when sect leader Qin came by a few days ago, he said he's going to Ri Yue sect to propose marriage; I thought you will be going for the wedding . "
"Don't mention those three words ever again!" Ye Jin placed his hands on his hips, "Or I will castrate you!"
Chu yuan doesn't know whether to laugh or cry: "What kind of ridiculous talk is this?"
"I grew up in Jiang Hu, of course I won't be as polite as you . " Ye Jin rubbed his nose, "I'm going to pick herbs, you can go and rest . "
Chu Yuan nodded, and saw him out of the small yard with his eyes; a rare peaceful smile on his face .
"Your Majesty . " A while later, Eunuch Si Xi jogged into the room, "Someone has sent a letter . "
"Qian Fan?" Chu Yuan said, sitting up from the bed .
"No . " Eunuch Si Xi panted, "Xi Nan King . "
Chu Yuan's hand stiffened .
Seeing that his expression is a bit ill, eunuch Si Xi cautiously asked: "Does Your Majesty want to take a look?"
Chu Yuan took the letter from his hands, and opened and glanced at it .
Eunuch Si Xi continued: "There's no reply from the palace yet; according to the travel time, I'm afraid we must at least wait for three, four more days; rest assured, Your Majesty . "
Chu Yuan sighed in his heart, and didn't say anything else .
And in an inn in Qiong Hua city, Duan Yao finally got his wish; lying on the bed, he slept a nice long sleep; he only woke up on the third day .
"Young Master . " Duan Nian, who is checking on him from the door, heard some movements and asked, "Do you want a meal?"
"Where's big brother?" Duan Yao stretched his waist .
"He has gone out early in the morning . " Duan Nian said . "He said he's seeing an old friend . "
Duan Yao became alert instantly, and nosily sat up from the bed, meeting an old friend?
Duan Nian opened the door, and helped him to bring in water for washing up .
"When big brother went out, did he dress up?" Duan Yao grabbed his wrist .
Duan Nian was shocked by the two words, "dress up" .
Duan Yao had heavily implied; his face was full of meaning .
A secret meeting . . . .
Near Qiong Hua valley, there's a Albizia tree; watered by the divine physician using herbal dregs, it became dubiously lush; it's as if it has gone crazy, and blooms all year round .
Duan Bai Yue leaned on the tree, looking to the azure horizon, engrossed in his thoughts .
Footsteps sounded from a distance away .
Duan Bai Yue smirked, but did not turn back .
"Xi Nan King . " Eunuch Si Xi greeted with respect .
Duan Bai Yue's smile froze on his face .
"The emperor is a bit ill, I'm afraid he can't come . " Eunuch Si Xi's manner was very earnest .
Duan Bai Yue frowned: "The injuries aren't healed yet?" The spies from Xi Nan manor had only received the news a few days ago too, that Chu Yuan was the target of an assassination, but they did not say it was a serious injury .
Eunuch Si Xi replied: "Yes, that's right . "
Duan Bai Yue smiled: "If that's the case, then this king won't disturb him anymore . "
Eunuch Si Xi stood on the spot, and only turned to leave after he saw him out of the mountain valley with his eyes
Chu Yuan, wrapped in a thick cloak, is standing not far away in wait .
"Your Majesty, Xi Nan King has left . " Eunuch Si Xi replied .
Chu Yuan nodded, his face a bit pale .
Eunuch Si Xi continued: "There are a lot of traps in this valley, and there are miasma of poisonous plants everywhere, even if one is highly skilled in martial arts, they also can't barge in; rest assured Your Majesty . "
Chu Yuan closed his eyes slightly, but beside his ears are only the sounds of the wind .
In the dark of the night, heavy rain pours; Duan Bai Yue, holding an umbrella, saw a silhouette not far away and smiled: "Emperor Chu is waiting for me, as expected . "
"Xiao Jin doesn't like having outsiders barge in, we of course don't wish to disturb him . " Chu Yuan's expression is distant, his palm cold .
Duan Bau Yue came up to him with big steps, took off his cloak and wrapped him tightly in it: "Why can't you be worried that I will barge in anyway and get hurt?"
Chu Yuan avoided his hand: "You have not said yet, why are you here?"
"Liu Manor has been eradicated, why should I still stay in the capital?" Duan Bai Yue asked back .
"Even if you want rewards, you must wait for us to return to the palace . " Chu Yuan turned and walked back, "If Xi Nan King has no other matters, then please leave . "
Duan Bai Yue called from behind him: "Want me to protect you up to the north?"
Chu Yuan shook his head .
Duan Bai Yue paused, and only said after a long while: "That's alright too . "
During the last part of his way back, Chu Yuan almost seemed like he's escaping back to his residence .
The surrounding are silent; there are no outsiders in Qiong Hua valley, the imperial guards are also injured, and so no one is on night watch; even Si Xi is in a nice, deep sleep .
Chu Yuan held onto the table and sat down, his chest hurting; almost as if someone tore a part of his body away .
This night, Duan Bai Yue stood under the tree for a long time, so long until the rain and fog have stopped, and the sun is shining in the sky robustly .
Behind him, someone sighed .
Duan Bai Yue immediately turned .
Bai Lai Cai looked at him and shook his head; the only thing he left out was to beat his chest in sadness .
Duan Bai Yue's head begin to ache again: "Teacher . "
Let me know if you spot any mistakes!
