Chapter 56: Quiet Time

Ye Jing and Xiaofang were sitting together as they overlooked the lofty mountains. It was just the two of them.

The breeze was refreshing and the clouds were thicker than usual. For a while, they were just enjoying their quiet time together before they headed home.

Ye Jing was swinging her legs as she inhaled deeply, “I didn’t think that you will declare your love for me so boldly in front of so many. Have you eaten a dragon gut?”

Xiaofang was grinning, “Yup, I think so.”

Ye Jing smiled gently before she said quietly, “Sister Yuqing says that she will be leaving us to settle her own stuff. What do you think? Don’t you want her to stay with us?”

Xiaofang shook his head, “She must have plenty of things to settle. We have no right to ask her to stay with us.”

Ye Jing leaned her head gently on his shoulder, “Are you dense? You can’t tell that she likes you?”

Xiaofang shrugged his shoulder and replied nonchalantly, “It has to be mutual like Jing’Er had said.”

Ye Jing giggled softly, “Oh yes? I saw you peeking at her quite a few times and your hands seem to be so naughty when you are handling her.”

Xiaofang was suddenly flustering, “Says who?”

Ye Jing gently pushed him away as she chuckled softly, “I saw you. Stop bluffing me. She is a peerless goddess who can melt the hearts of men and women. I don’t believe that you won’t be tempted. And you seem to be staring at Xuan Danfeng legs as well. How can I believe you?”

Xiaofang protested awkwardly, “It is all because my Jing’Er doesn’t want to show me any attention…”

Ye Jing leaned her head forward and laughed softly, “So it becomes my fault?”

Then she leaned on the grass patch as she watched the clouds, “You know Xiaofang. We only got six months of respite if we were to believe the words of the Devil Isle. Maybe even less than that. I really don’t mind if you take Yuqing or Danfeng as your concubines but I got to be your main consort. Deal?”

Xiaofang sighed softly, “You know that I have already told everyone that the only maiden that I like is my Jing’Er? How can I go back on my words?”

Ye Jing got up and whispered to his ears, “You’re so badass. Like real I believe in you. I remember how you made your first promise to me not to tell anyone but you ended up telling your mum…Did you know how embarrassed that I was at that time? I had wished that I could dig a hole at that time…”

Xiaofang ears had turned really red as he said weakly, “Alas, that time….I really did not mean it…”

Ye Jing suddenly smiled mysteriously, “Anyway Xiaofang. Listen up. I’ve already promised Xuan Danfeng to let you visit the Lofty Snow Palace as an honorable guest. So make the full use of your time and enjoy your stay there.”

Xiaofang was startled, “Jing’Er, you did what?!”

Ye Jing said quietly, “The Lofty Snow Palace is just nearby and will be near to the Tranquil City that I will be visiting. I am going to pay the Ruler of the Tranquil City a visit. I have some tricky questions that I need to ask her.”

Xiaofang panicky said, “Jing’Er, let me go with you…”

Ye Jing shook her head lightly, “No, you can’t. Don’t worry, I won’t be in any danger. Have you forgotten that I am the patriarch of the Tranquil City? I will be safe there.”

Xiaofang protested, “What if the Devil Isle pursues you into the Tranquil City?”

Ye Jing giggled, “I am just a small fry. Frankly speaking, you should worry more about yourself. I am quite sure that you and Yuqing will be on their number one hit list. Anyway, the Devil Isle won’t dare to approach the Tranquil City.”

Xiaofang asked curiously, “The Devil Isle won’t dare to approach the Tranquil City? Jing’Er, are you certain?”

Ye Jing nodded slowly before she whispered, “You promise you don’t tell it to anyone…I suspect that the Goddess Palace is actually at the Tranquil City itself…”

“Huh?!! No way…” Xiaofang was shocked to hear.

Ye Jing continued, “It won’t be convenient for you or anyone to follow me. Got it?”
