Chapter 1437: Lu Yanxue Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Chu Qingyi left. Lu Zhan stared at Qin Wentian and sighed before he left as well. He was very unwilling to be swept up in this storm but there was no way for him to evade it.
Qin Wentian calmly watched the happenings. Although there were waves in his heart, the waves weren’t too great.
A holy maiden of the Snowdrift Sage Hall, Mo Xiaoxiao, was in opposition with Chu Qingyi but she was actually going to use him as the excuse? This was really a laughable matter. Since she wanted it to be so, she was destined to be disappointed.
“What relationship do you have with Qingyi exactly?” Lu Yao curiously stared at Qin Wentian. From the conversation between Chu Qingyi and Qin Wentian, the two of them didn’t seem like good friends or lovers. On the contrary, they even seemed to have some grudge between them. But if this was the case, why would Chu Qingyi spare no expense, asking her to help save him?
“We don’t have any relationship at all.” Qin Wentian calmly replied. Lu Yao started, she then smiled and shook her head, “It’s fine if you don’t wish to tell me. In any case, there’s still a period of time before the birthday celebration. You should recuperate well. Qingyi will think of a solution and I’ll do my best to protect your safety.”
“Many thanks.” Qin Wentian nodded lightly to Lu Yao. This maiden was able to promise to take good care of him under such a situation. She was really a very good friend.
As for his safety, no one else here was qualified enough yet to protect him.
The only characters he had to be wary of, were immortal emperors. He couldn’t care less about a mere City Lord. The truly troublesome matter was that the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor sought help from an extremely powerful source. Unless there’s another equally powerful character willing to protect him, he mustn’t appear in the Eastern Sage’s vision, or let him know any clue regarding his whereabouts.
For this period of time, Lu Yao really did take good care of Qin Wentian. She would often brew some medicine for Qin Wentian to consume. Actually, Qin Wentian didn’t really need the medicine. However, upon seeing how insistent Lu Yao was as well as to thank her for her kind gesture, he finished up the contents of the brewed medicine every single time. Also, his injuries were gradually recovering and his energy and spirit were slowly restored.
“Have you gone mad? You are actually still giving him medicine. Don’t you know what the current situation is?”
“Lu Yanxue’s cultivation has already reached the mid-stage of the immortal king realm. What a fast cultivation speed is this? Her talent is outstanding and she is heavily recognized by the Snowdrift Sage Hall. When she comes back for the birthday celebration, a huge commotion will definitely happen. You are actually still taking care of this man? Are you really intending to make an enemy out of Lu Yanxue’s faction? She’s the senior apprentice aunt of Mo Xiaoxiao’s faction in the sect too.”
“That’s right, we should capture him now and hand him over to Mo Xiaoxiao. Let’s forget about Chu Qingyi.”
The voices outside quarrelled. Although there was some distance between them, Qin Wentian could still hear these words clearly. Qin Wentian’s immortal sense extended outwards and after that, he saw a group of young people from the Lu Clan surrounding Lu Yao. All of these people had cold looks on their faces and were berating Lu Yao rudely.
“When Qingyi was here, why did none of you step out to say anything? Now that Qingyi has left him in my care, you guys suddenly became so gutsy and stood out?” Lu Yao glanced at the people around her, all of them in the same generation as her. She was so enraged that her body was trembling.
“Chu Qingyi is, after all, a holy maiden of the Snowdrift Sage Hall. We cannot clash head-on directly with her. Now that she’s left, maybe she doesn’t intend to bother with this matter any longer. However, you are so stupid and still actually helping her? In addition, if we hand over this man to Mo Xiaoxiao and Lu Zhanfei, even when Chu Qingyi returns and learns of it, she wouldn’t dare to say anything.” A female icily spoke.
“That’s right, we can express goodwill to Mo Xiaoxiao. After all, in our Lu Clan, Mo Xiaoxiao’s authority is greater than Chu Qingyi.” The other people here all nodded.
“Don’t forget what Qingyi said when she left. There’s nothing wrong if you all want to please Mo Xiaoxiao. However, if there’s someone who really dares to capture him to hand him over to Mo Xiaoxiao, Qingyi will definitely not spare any of you. You all best consider the price you have to pay.” Lu Yao’s voice turned domineering and cold, causing these people to hesitate.
After that, a young man cursed out loud with an ugly expression on his face. “For a mere trash, you want to protect him? Lu Yao, you may cause our entire faction to be punished. You should know how to weigh the benefits and costs.”
“Lu Yao, if something happens to our faction, you will really be a sinner.” The group of people flicked their sleeves and left. Lu Yao was so angered that she was panting. Staring at the departing people, her heart was filled with anger and unhappiness.
“Nothing but a bunch of snobs.” Lu Yao angrily spoke.
“Since you know their character, why are you still angered by them?” A voice drifted over. Lu Yao turned, only to see Qin Wentian walking here. She couldn’t help but ask, “Sir Qin, you’ve heard it?”
“Mhm.” Qin Wentian nodded lightly. “Don’t worry, these matters won’t be able to affect me.”
“That’s good. Sir Qin, you are still injured, you must not be angered or your internal injuries might flare up once more. Qingyi asked me to take care of you, even if I cannot allow you to make a full recovery, I mustn’t further aggravate your injuries.” Lu Yao smiled. Qin Wentian walked to her side, “Lu Yao, do you have any wish you want to fulfill?”
“Why are you asking this question?” Lu Yao had a look of curiosity on her face.
“You gave me a grand recovery pill to consume, I said that I would repay you for that before and I’ll naturally do so. However, I have no idea what you want, and hence, I’m asking if you have any wishes. Maybe, I might be able to fulfill them for you.” Qin Wentian laughed. Although he would be fine even without the grand recovery pill, he was someone who could clearly differentiate between hatred and kindness. The two of them weren’t acquainted at all, Qin Wentian naturally wanted to repay Lu Yao for her kindness.
Lu Yao giggled, exuding an innocent and sunshine-like feel.
“What are you laughing about?” Qin Wentian started.
“I’m laughing at how silly you are. You might be in deep trouble but you are still concerned about my wish? Could it be that you will help me to fulfill it?” Lu Yao rolled her eyes. Although she didn’t believe him, his words did give her a feeling of comfort.
“I’m silly?” Qin Wentian had a face filled with black lines. There were very few people who would say that of him.
“Am I not correct?” Lu Yao laughed mischievously when she saw the awkward expression on Qin Wentian’s face, she was really quiet adorable.
“My wish is very simple, I only hope that my faction in the clan would be more heavily recognized instead of being pushed to the side. However, my talent cannot be considered high among my clan. Hence, I say that this wish of mine is very hard to fulfill. For those powerful innate techniques and secret arts, alchemic skills and all various divine weapons, all of them would never flow to me. In the future, even my marriage might not be able to be decided by me. Only if the Clan Lord attached a heavy importance to me, I might still be able to have the authority of choice.”
Lu Yao stared in the horizons as she sighed. However, she soon recovered and glanced at Qin Wentian, “Haha, I have no idea why I’m telling you this. These are all just empty fantasies of mine. You cannot laugh at me okay?”
“I won’t.” Qin Wentian shook his head. “Maybe I might really be able to accomplish some of these wishes for you.”
“Forget it, I will already be very satisfied if one of those many wishes could be fulfilled.” Lu Yao shook her head. “In any case, let’s forget about this, we have to survive this calamity first. This time, during Grandpa’s birthday celebration, you might be in great trouble. I wonder if Qingyi will be able to think of a solution.”
“Nothing will happen to me.” Qin Wentian spoke lightly.
“Let’s hope so. Sir Qin, you should hurry up and recuperate. If things are bad, I’ll try and sneak you away.” Lu Yao spoke. Qin Wentian didn’t say anything in response. He returned to his own room to continued and recuperate, circulating his energy unceasingly.
As time flowed by, the date of the celebration banquet for the City Lord was arriving.
This birthday celebration for the City Lord, was held once every hundred years. Today, the entire Coldnether Immortal City was in a commotion as experts from several powers arrived here to offer their congratulations. There were also many powers who left after they brought their gifts. These minor powers didn’t even have the qualifications to enter the banquet. Those who could do so were definitely people with extraordinary statuses.
Today, the atmosphere in the City Lord Manor was extremely lively as everyone was busy in preparation. Only in the residence where Qin Wentian and Lu Yao was in, was relatively quiet. Nobody showed any interest in them. Clearly, the recent matter has affected Lu Yao’s faction’s standing within the clan. Lu Yao was sighing in her heart, seems like her wish would never be fulfilled as the distance grew further and further.
At this moment, Qin Wentian appeared and walked towards the exit.
“Stop right there.” Somebody blocked Qin Wentian as that person coldly spoke.
Qin Wentian frowned, “Even my freedom is restricted?”
“It’s too late even if you want to flee now.”
“Flee?” Qin Wentian stared at the guard blocking him. “I don’t have any grudge with the Lu Clan. Does your Lu Clan really plan to kill me?”
“That would have to depend on the City Lord’s will. In any case, before the matter about the grand recovery pill comes to a conclusion, you are not allowed to take a single step out from here.” The guard spoke in a glacial tone. Qin Wentian coldly laughed, “Very well. But who knows, maybe at the time when I have no wish to leave, you guys might be begging me to leave.”
As he spoke, he directly turned and returned. He then saw Lu Yao’s silhouette flashing, walking towards him with an expression of worry on her face.
“Are you okay?” Qin Wentian asked.
“Lu Yanxue has arrived and she also brought many experts of the Snowdrift Sage Hall with her, as well as several people of her generation. The old man City Lord, personally went out to welcome her.” Lu Yao spoke. She then glanced to the guards around here as she coldly spoke. “Scram, are you guys monitoring me?”
“Miss Lu Yao, please don’t be angered. We are merely following orders.” A guard coldly laughed, a glint of amusement could be seen in his eyes when he stared at Qin Wentian and Lu Yao.
“There’s no need to make things difficult for them.” Qin Wentian calmly replied. Lu Yao’s expression was painted with worry. At this moment, a voice drifted over from afar, Chu Qingyi had arrived. Lu Yao glanced at her with anticipation, only to see Chu Qingyi had a frown on her face as she spoke to Qin Wentian. “No matter what happens, I’ll protect your safety, disregarding everything,”
When Lu Yao heard this, her heart couldn’t help but to sink.
Qin Wentian saw the determination in Chu Qingyi’s eyes. He then smiled at her, “Thank you, let us go to the banquet then.”
Chu Qingyi was stunned when she saw Qin Wentian’s smile. She then nodded her head solemnly, “Okay.”
This time, after she returned to her sect, her elders told her not to interfere in this matter because Lu Yanxue’s status in the sect was getting increasingly higher.
At this moment, many experts have already gathered at the location of the banquet. Their eyes were all turned in one direction. The City Lord Lu was personally welcoming this particular entourage. Several female figures flew over, all of them exuding an extraordinary aura, flying towards here.
“Yanxue, you’ve returned.” City Lord Lu happily stated.
“I naturally have to come back to wish father well on your birthday.” Lu Yanxue looked about thirty years of age and was very beautiful, with an extraordinary aura. She was an immortal king and when she descended, she clasped her hands, “Yanxue congratulates father on his upcoming birthday.”
“We congratulate City Lord Lu respectfully.” Many disciples of the Snowdrift Sage Hall bowed in unison and gifted grand presents. City Lord Lu had a face full of smiles. He then spoke, “Yanxue, dispense with the formalities. Just take your seat.”
“Right.” Lu Yanxue nodded lightly.
“Senior apprentice aunt!” Mo Xiaoxiao stood up and greeted.
“Aunt!” Lu Zhanfei also called out.
Lu Yanxue glanced over, nodding her head to signal her intent. She basked in her glory and directly sat on one of the master seats, like the moon surrounded by stars. After that, all the experts respectively stood up and clasped their hands to offer respectful greetings for her.
