[the diary of Gian]
November 23rd, Thursday, sunny
Unknowingly, I have been here for a week…Every day, there was nothing to do except sitting, practicing, eating, and sleeping was so dull!
I don’t know what’s going on outside. He always said that a lot of people would come to make trouble for me, but a week has passed, and no one has come to me, and he didn’t seem to care at all. He must be lying to me…Must it be?
Alas…I can’t send a message even if I come here for no reason. I wonder if my friends will blame me for leaving without saying goodbye. If what he said is true, at least Lu Ang will know what happened to me. I hope he doesn’t worry too much…I really wanted to go back to school…
And the shop manager…If I don’t go to the study for so many days, he will definitely deduct my salary…And will he fire me? Please don’t! It was not easy for me to find such a well-paid job…God bless me! God bless me! I will pay you back when I go back!
By the way, Shane and Jin Yuan! I don’t know how they are doing now. It’s time to go back to the capital city after so many days, right? If they knew I was here, would they come to me? Of course! Goddess, I hope they can come to me as soon as possible. This boring place is almost suffocating…
Alas…However, today, he finally felt that his progress had been improved. He could hold on longer to resist the black tide, but he was still as stubborn as before, not even smiling. On the other hand, I don’t know what’s wrong with him recently. He seems to be in debt and keeps a straight face all day long. But when he sees that I fail to practice, he will laugh and sneer at me again. He is really bad…He was so difficult to get along with. No wonder he could only stay in this damned place alone!
“Gian！Gian… “There were two soft cats like cries coming from outside, one after another, which seemed to be unhappy.
“I’m here!” Gian quickly put the small notebook that he had found out from nowhere under the pillow, put the brush back on the table, and replied loudly. He habitually patted his sleeves and ran out of the door.
Outside the bamboo house, it was a sunny day. The fragrance of grass and breeze blew. When they touched men, they went straight to the collar of their sleeves. It was a pleasant scene. But now, Gian already had no feelings for these, let alone any thoughts of appreciating them. He bowed his head, crossed the stream, and entered the bamboo forest without even considering the direction. He quickly walked to the side of the quaint Pavilion.
Outside the Pavilion, two figures stood out of his expectation. Needless to say, the one with purple robes and purple hair and a pipe was the evil man he had been getting along with day and night for the past week. The other one was a tall and thin middle-aged man, with long grey hair and a snow-white robe of a monk. On the robe, there was no Phoenix mark of the Holy Tower, and no one knew where he came from.
The young man raised his head and looked at the stranger carefully. He saw that the stranger had a gentle face and a smile at the corners of his mouth as if he was easy to get along with. He could not help but smile. He bowed his head, and the stranger also touched his chest to greet him politely.
“All right, all right. Don’t be so courteous…” Hsuan waved his pipe and pointed at the man beside him. “This is my disciple. I have something to deal with these days, so he will help me teach you. Well, tell him if you have any questions, okay?”
“Yes, sir!” Gian first agreed. Then, looking at the man who was as gentle as a jade, he couldn’t help but mutter in his heart, “This monk is already forty years old, isn’t he? How could he be his disciple? It was said that the older the cultivators were, the more powerful they were? Well, maybe he was just like me who was fooled by him inexplicably…”
Even if he cursed in his heart, he didn’t dare to show any signs on his face. He lowered his head and played the role of a winged tiger, in case of attracting the other party’s malicious tricks. These days, he finally understood that as long as he was obedient and did not speak, this seemingly moody gentleman could do nothing to him and could not find an excuse to scold him.
The Priest nodded with satisfaction when he saw the sincere expression on his face. Then he smiled at the white-robed monk and said, “Now you have seen him too. Don’t say that I haven’t reminded you. Be careful.” He gave him a meaningful look. After the teacher received it, he nodded happily. “Don’t worry. I will try my best to teach ….our friend. “
As soon as he finished speaking, the smile on Hsuan’s face disappeared. He pretended to cast a cold glance at the world sea and said, “Go and meditate for a while.”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“Oh…” The young man didn’t dare to ask more. He nodded and turned to the training platform.
Looking at the thin boy’s back, Ning sighed in his heart. He didn’t expect that the powerful blood power of the Holy King would reappear in such a weak young man from the South Island. He felt a little regret, but could only praise the unforeseen nature. When the young man’s figure disappeared into the bamboo forest, he turned to his teacher. He asked without hesitation, “What level do you want him to reach?”
The Priest had already laid back on the bamboo chair. With a cigarette in his mouth, he replied casually, “We have to build a balance…What if he gets out of control? “
“You are right…” The monk echoed with a smile. He had already thought about it, but then he thought of the eye-catching court meeting tomorrow. After hesitating for a moment, he asked in a low voice, “The court meeting tomorrow morning…Do you know? “
“……You don’t have to worry about it. Just focus on taking care of that brat. “Priest didn’t give a direct answer. He closed his eyes and pretended to rest.
Seeing that he didn’t want to tell him, Ning didn’t ask anymore. In fact, he was very dissatisfied with the reappearance of this farce like a fairy. In his opinion, his irascible brother had really passed out. For his own selfish interest, he had completely disregarded the reputation of the royal family, causing the city to be filled with gossip. Now there were even rumors in the holy tower, which was really detrimental to the dignity of the divine sect.
However, he had no interest in such an ordinary thing and didn’t want to get involved. Hearing the teacher’s order, he naturally knew that the other party must have some considerations. So he was relieved and answered. Then he turned around to communicate with his nominal junior fellow disciple.
Lying on the bamboo chair, Hsuan was basking in the sun lazily. When he thought of the court meeting to be held tomorrow, he had no scruples at all. With his identity, he didn’t need to participate in the court meeting at all. Since the emperor had such a plan, he must have his own arrangement, and there was no need for him to waste time on it. The master and the disciple were really good at shaking hands.
He finished his cigarette leisurely and looked up at the sun. It was almost time to send food. In order not to let the two troublemakers at home make any trouble, he had to personally send food to the study and take care of the world sea’s food. He had to serve them from both sides, which made him look like a servant.
He shook his head with self-mockery and looked in the direction of the training platform. Undercover of the bamboo forest, he could only vaguely see a few grey white stones. The faint laughter came from time to time as if the two of them got along very well.
This ungrateful boy…He frowned with a bit of dissatisfaction. He thought that he had spent a lot of time and energy to teach Gian, but he hadn’t seen such a joyful scene. Instead, the relationship between them had become a bit stiff. Of course, he would never admit that it was his bad attitude that always found fault with him, which was the main reason why the two of them could not get along well.
With this thought, he immediately straightened his face and looked at the voice. Suddenly, he coughed heavily, which made the other side seem to be frightened. Then he was satisfied with the white light and disappeared in a flash.
In the small living room on the inner floor of the study, Miyo and Huang were fighting against piles of delicious dishes, trying to destroy the food. The plates and bowls piled up on the small table almost covered their figures.
In the past few days, there had been people bringing food and dishes. They had a relaxed life. They didn’t have to go out to have meals. Occasionally, they could eat the unique cooking of master Blake, who was bribed by Hsuan with the Psychedelic flower. It was really moisturizing. Even the bulging belly of Huang seemed to have grown a lot.
Hsuan leaned against the deck chair by the window, watching the two big appetite kings eating non-stop. He felt inexplicably satisfied. He had lived alone for countless years, and sometimes he felt a little empty when he calmed down. The sudden appearance of the quiet little girl seemed to fill in a kind of blank in his life, which made him feel that he had regained the vitality of many young people and no longer felt too lonely.
Looking at the girl who was eating slowly, he suddenly realized that if the storm of the court was over, would he send her back to her own father? As soon as he thought of this, his face immediately darkened, and the resentment that had been haunting him for thousands of years quickly surged into his heart.
“Sending the girl away? Are you kidding me…”It was not easy for him to find such a warm home-like comfort. If anyone dared to compete with him, he would turn against him! However, as a father, it was a matter of course for him to get his daughter back. Even if he could stop her at this time, if the girl regained her memory in the future, she would think clearly about all this. At that time, would she blame him…
Full of his own thoughts, he struggled for a long time between being sent away and not. His face was sometimes bright and sometimes dark, ups and downs. Finally, he couldn’t help but ask the girl tentatively in a low voice, “Miyo, you…Do you want to go back to your own home? “
Her own home? The girl raised her head from the huge rice basin and licked the rice grains on her lips carefully. She tilted her head and looked at the Priest in confusion.”Her own home? Isn’t this her home? Why did brother Hsuan ask such a question?”In her little mind, she only remembered the eight years she had spent in the study. She had no impression of anything else, so she naturally couldn’t understand this seemingly ordinary question.
Hsuan sighed and kept telling her the truth. Then he heard Hans shout, “What? What! What do you mean? Old smoker, I warn you! Don’t try to do anything stealthily! Miyo is my best friend. How could you send her away? Do you still care about me!? She was so pissed off! If you dare to say it again, I will get angry! If I’m angry, I’m even afraid of myself! “
“……” The Priest looked at the furious fat bird on the rice plate with a dark face. Although he didn’t want to talk to it, he was a little happy in his heart. “In that case, if the emperor asks, he can use Huang as an excuse…No matter how hard you persuade me, you can’t explain to a bird?”
He did such wishful thinking, and suddenly pulled a smile on his face. He asked them to continue to eat as if nothing had happened, and he wiped the pipe, leaned back in the chair, and continued to shake.
Right now, he had already given the hot potato Gian to his disciple. As long as the storm of the court was over, he would be able to live a free and happy life again! He didn’t have to stay in the capital city anymore.
No matter what happened, as long as he stayed out of it, who could do anything to him? He narrowed his eyes, with a smile on the corner of his mouth, as if he saw them coming happy day. He felt sleepy in the slight shake and fell asleep with the crisp collision of the bowls and dishes.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
