Chapter 9: Dragging Out Disciple For A Stroll When Free~
He didn’t expect Gu Yunjue to be so susceptible, Mu Chen wavered a bit then answered, “He’s an old friend.”
“Who is that old friend? Master looks like you have a lot of old friends.” Gu Yunjue was clearly very interested in this old friend that made Mu Chen reveal a reminiscing and sad look of regret. His delicate eyes slightly narrowed into a pretty curve, hiding the malice in his eyes. He pulled Mu Chen and continued to ask.
Mu Chen dotingly patted his disciple’s back, “An old friend, just an old friend.” He did not have the desire to explain anymore, but the little disciple in his embrace would not let it go, “What kind of person was your old friend? Does Master like him?”
“Hm.” Mu Chen dropped his gaze down, he didn’t want to speak.
“Do you like this disciple more or your old friend more?”
“You.” His tone already has a trace of impatience.
“By how much?”
“Hm.” Continuing to endure…
Mu Chen used a silence spell on his little disciple, annoyance in his eyes. This little thing was too noisy, where does all his questions come from?
Gu Yunjue opened his mouth but he couldn’t make any sound. He became aware the Mu Chen had done something and smiled from anger, he didn’t want to listen to him talk? He reached out and grabbed Mu Chen’s hair, lightly twisting it in his fingers. With a smile on his face, he used the tips of the hair to jab Mu Chen’s face, soundlessly saying, “Master, smile.”
Mu Chen tilted his head to avoid it, he helpless watched over Gu Yunjue. This naughty little devil!
Gu Yunjue squinted his eyes, causing his peach flower eyes to bend into a curve like a new moon while he propped Mu Chen. He wanted his face to show a different expression because of him while he was also secretly thinking. He had already confirmed that the devil power was the Spirit Devil Cultivation. It was impossible for his little Master to have the chance to touch that cultivation method. The fluctuation of the devil power was also very close to his spiritual power. Gu Yunjue was now suspicious if Mu Chen was like him, his soul returning to one hundred years ago? And had even carried with him his one hundred years of skill? How should he feel it out?
This thought had just been raised when Mu Chen directly threw Gu Yunjue into the sky. With a toss of his hand, a round film of transparent spiritual power formed on Gu Yunjue. Below the film was also a cord form from spiritual power being grabbed by him, with a light pull, the floating Gu Yunjue followed the movement and started to sway back and forth. Mu Chen felt that with his little disciple being naughty without end, this was the best way to bring him out.
Silenced–Thrown into the air–Covered by spiritual power–Pulled along as he walked!
Mu Chen’s lips slightly raised, perfect!
Gu Yunjue sat inside and looked down at Mu Chen. Tiny bit of unhappiness that rose in his heart was defeated by Mu Chen’s small smile, his heart suddenly soften like a bowl of spring water. It was as if he could accept anything this man did to him. He helplessly held his forehead and scolded himself silently. If he didn’t go insane, then he must have been hit by some magic. This situation isn’t right!
Bringing with him a group of people, Yue Mingze and the others all searched through the forbidden area but they did not find anyone. He immediately gave the order to sear Lofty Cloudy Sect, to not let off any traces. For a Synthesis Stage Devil Cultivator to come to the Immortal Realm, perhaps he was here to find his parents and visit friends? Like who would believe it?
“Could the child have seen wrong?” A black-clothed old man stroke his beard and said with some doubt, “To not even sense a single trace of power, this is clearly not aligned with common sense.”
“We’ll know if we ask Elder Mu.”
Yue Mingze knitted his brows, feeling uneasy, “This one will personally go.”
Another middle-aged black-clothed cultivator that was holding a fan smiled and said, “I heard that Ten Thousand Sword Sect’s Sect Master wanted to become dao companions with Junior Brother Mu, his card has already been sent to Sect Master. I don’t know if the rumors were true?”
This cultivator was named Zheng Xuansu, he indeed was a Senior Brother that had a higher seniority compared to Mu Chen. Although the two of them were both Dan Yanzi’s disciples, Mu Chen was the personal succeeding disciple and what he learned was a sect cultivation method. Zheng Xuansu was just a disciple in name, what he learned was a normal cultivation method. Although he couldn’t say their relationship was any good, it was also not bad. After all, with Mu Chen’s temper, as long as other people did not provoke him then he would also be too lazy to respond to others.
Yue Mingze awkwardly answered, “Although the number of female cultivators really is less, and it doesn’t matter if they tie the knot with another male cultivator, but binding Yin and Yang is still the correct path, although Mu Chen looks like… he still is a man in the end.” Although having a Lofty Cloudy Sect Elder marrying the Ten Thousand Sword Sect’s Sect Master could make the relationship between the two sect firmer, he had never thought before that Mu Chen could marry another person. Moreover, Yu Tianyi’s cultivation had already reached Immortalization Stage and is just a step away from ascending, for Martial Uncle Mu to be with him… isn’t that being bullied? Yue Mingze pulled his face, although he was still powerless in supporting up Lofty Cloudy Sect right now, he would not also sell his Martial Uncle.
Zheng Xuansu used his folding fan to softly pat his palm. Showing a reminiscing expression, “Junior Brother Mu is a Pill Cultivator, before Master ascended, he had worried that after he passed on, Junior Brother Mu may be bullied by other people and wanted to find him a sword cultivator as a dao companion. But at time, Junior Brother’s cultivation was not even at Core Formation Stage. So even though Master had found a few remarkable cultivators, he did not dare to mention it due to the large difference in their cultivation. Perhaps now is a chance.”
Yue Mingze solemnly said, “That was before, the current Martial Uncle Mu simply doesn’t need someone else to protect him.”
Zheng Xuansu’s hand stopped, his face revealing embarrassment for a split second. He was a bit displeased by Yue Mingze’s stubbornness, “That’s true.” Although Pill Cultivators firepower was weaker, looking back at Mu Chen’s performance at the trial assembly, no one would dare to consider and regard him as a common pill cultivator. In a short while, his face returned to normal and he continued, “But rejecting this kind of matter directly isn’t too good, let’s ask Junior Brother Mu. Maybe he has his own opinion.”
Yue Mingze’s face was calm and collected, but he was sighing in his heart. What Zheng Xuansu said was right, he really does not have the power to make Martial Uncle Mu’s decision for him, so he could only take the chance to deliver the line to him later. Thinking to this point, Yue Mingze’s hands that were hidden in his sleeves started to count off again, he was calculating once more the probability Mu Chen would become hostile.
After Mu Chen went back, he had Jing Ting and Jing Ming take out Gu Yunjue for a walk while he set down a boundary in his room to heal himself.
With Mu Chen gone, Jing Ming immediately restored his childlike nature, jumping around and pulling along Gu Yunjue ahead. While they walked, he also introduced the surroundings to him, a tail seem to be behind him, waving to and from.
But Jing Ting’s face was still cold, the gaze he used to watch Gu Yunjue carried some examining and alienation.
Gu Yunjue could tell what Jing Ting was thinking about in a glance. His arrival had made Master’s peaceful days become a bit different, this little wolfdog that was protected and fed was just scared his master(owner) would be taken.
“This medical garden is taken care of by Uncle Li, look, isn’t it quite pretty?” Jing Ming pointed at the wide expanse of medical fields before them and showed off to Gu Yunjue, “This was taken back from the outside by Palace Master, no matter what he brings back, as long as it still has a trace of vitality, Uncle Li would be able to bring it back to life.”
While speaking, a middle-aged cultivator dressed in black walked over with a gentle smile. This man did not look good at all, even a bit fiendish. He had thick eyebrows and big eyes, square-jawed face, and long beard. His hands were clasped behind his back, he seemed to be holding something.
Gu Yunjue finally noticed that the other’s eyes unexpectedly did not focus when he came closer, in other words, this man was a blind man.
For a blind man to plant several hundred miles of medical fields, it couldn’t help but make people curious. What kind of magical ability did he have?
“Uncle Li!” Jing Ming happily ran over Big Beard shallowly smiled, accurately finding and patted his head. It was obviously a fiendish face, yet his expression was quite dotting, when he faced at Jing Ting, his face was very gentle.
“So this is Palace Master’s new disciple, his foresight is never wrong, the young fellow must have something outstanding about him.” Big Beard lowered his head, his sightless eyes staring at Gu Yunjue. It seems like he found something wrong as his eyebrows crinkled and he said in amazement, “Such a strange birth chart!”
Gu Yunjue was also sizing up the other, he was positive that he had never seen this man before in his past lifetime. He had either died in the next ten years, or he had left. A blind man that could deduce one’s destiny, really interesting.
Big Beard shook his head and was no longer being serious, he handed the thing he was holding to GU Yunjue, it was actually a large bundle of Cold Fragrant Flowers. These flowers were clearly just picked, the petals still had dew on it. The white petals was glossy like jade, when shined on by the sun, one could see the light golden veins within.
“Could you give this to your Master for me so I don’t have to take another trip.” After Big Beard finished speaking, he waved at the three and directly turned around and left.
Gu Yunjue narrowed his eyes, his eyes frosty like a sharp sword, cold and severe. To dare to send little Master flowers, don’t tell him it was someone else that had feelings for his Master?
After a few steps, Big Beard stopped as if he remembered something. He hesitated for a moment before turning back around and looked in Gu Yunjue’s direction. “Young fellow, protect your Master well, it’s best to keep close to him.”
Gu Yunjue raised an eyebrow, the killing intent in his eyes have already disappeared without a trace. He would naturally follow his Master closely, but the words of the other made him unhappy, “What do you mean? Is Master in danger?”
“I can’t explain well.” Big Beard shook his head in distress, “A person reeking of blood, whether he is happiness or disaster for him, I cannot tell at all.”
This unclear sentence made Gu Yunjue’s mood even more restless, watching the other’s leaving figure once again, GU Yunjue pressed down the thought of searching through the other’s spirit soul. To not make Mu Chen angry, he will endure.
Jing Ming seeing Gu Yunjue “staring blankly”, he thought he was frightened and poked his shoulder while comforting him, “Palace Master is so strong, it is impossible for him to be in danger. You don’t need to worry.”
But Jing Ming’s face who was standing by the side wasn’t goo. Uncle Li had never calculated something wrong, since he had said so, then he must have seen something. Don’t tell him that the one to save Palace master would be this little bun of unknown origin?
Jing Ming pulled Gu Yunjue and hopped around, saying, “I’ll take you to go see Palace Master’s calabash, one vine has seven. Orange, red, yellow-green, green-blue, blue and purple. One calabash one color, even the attributes have nothing to do with each other. Isn’t it especially magical?”
This action caused Gu Yunjue to return to his senses. He also sighed ruefully, the person that fled from him on sight in his past life now was clowning around with him. Life is truly weird, he had only made a curve earlier in life yet the circumstances had differed so much. He shook his head, declining and asked Jing Ming, “This Uncle Li, just who is he?”
Author’s Comment: Doing a small show of not bearing responsibility.
Gu Yunjue: “I think my feelings for little Master isn’t quite right, the desire I have isn’t quite right either.”
Black Meow: “By the time you notice something is wrong, my family’s Mu Chen would be done for! You perverted scum without shame, rogue, stinky flirt!”
Gu Yunjue pulls his sword out.
Black Meow pulls out her dear fifty centimeter long double-sided blood groove silver-back machete. Added a thirteen thousand five hundred point big stick, another eight hundred and sixty thousand landmine and rushed up: The little Master is mine!!!
