Chapter 63: Danfeng Real Motives
Gong Nanyan was stunned and lost for words as she stared at Xiaofang, “Young Master Fang…” She really had not expected him to purify her spiritual inner core at the cost of his own cultivation progression and expending a portion of his life energies from his inner core for her sake.
When he had massaged her breasts, she had thought that he was going to just unblock her energy veins. But he went a step further and removed the root of her problem.
Xiaofang was sweating heavily and he had exhausted himself as he muttered, “It is done…”
When he had muttered it was done, he had collapsed on her as he succumbed into a deep sleep.
Gong Nanyan was startled when Xiaofang had suddenly collapsed into her naked body. Her body began to tremble lightly but she did not push him away. Instead she slowly removed his damp robe as she was afraid that he may catch a cold.
Quietly she covered the two of them with her blanket as she muttered, “Young Master Fang…how do expect Nanyan to pay you back this debt of deep gratitude to you?”
After her inner core was purified, there was a surge of profound energies that increased her golden celestial level to the intermediate stage. She was secretly delighted but at the same time she was suddenly at a loss; it was because not everyone had a golden opportunity to restart their cultivation anew.
When her cultivation was restarted, this meant that her Lofty Snow Cultivation Arts was also at its purest form, without the harmful effects of the cold negative energies that had afflicted her body. She was back to being a normal person again and she had even regained her ability to bear children. This was provided that she did not cultivate in the Lofty Snow Cultivation Arts again…
All of a sudden, she had realized that the Lofty Snow Cultivation Arts had lost its allure on her…
She opened her eyes and looked at Xiaofang as she stroked him gently, “Young Master Fang…protégé mistress…”
It took her a long time to calm down and finally to close her eyes. But all of a sudden Xiaofang began to stir in his sleep as he grabbed her soft body tightly, muttering. “Jing’Er…”
“Who is this Jing’Er? His consort or mistress?”
When Xiaofang was sleeping soundly, he had suddenly dreamed that he was back with Jing’Er again and that they were doing their body dual cultivation. He had missed his Jing’Er so much. Especially more when Xuan Danfeng had tried to tempt him with her beautiful snowy legs and that stirred up the lusts that were within him. Right now, he was holding Jing’Er beautiful soft body and he was banging her…
All of a sudden he got a jolt because it all felt too real and he had suddenly remembered where he was. He quickly opened his eyes and he was lying on top of Gong Nanyan…
Gong Nanyan turned her glances away from him before she said indifferently, “You are awake.”
She gently removed his hands from her bosom as she got up shyly from the bed, “You should sleep a little more. I will go and prepare breakfast for you…and your warm milk.”
Xiaofang was trembling as he thought, “What have I done?!”
Gong Nanyan said quietly as she looked intently at him, “In the future when I am talking to you, I will look at you.”
Then she quietly put on her robe and left the room…
Xiaofang muttered, “She really has a nice figure…”
Gong Nanyan was actually as beautiful as Xuan Danfeng and Feng Minyue but because she was too aloof, it was really hard to get a good impression of her. The first impression everyone got from her was her disdain and indifferent look to everything around her.
When she had suddenly stopped her acting of speaking slowly and icily, Xiaofang found that her voice was actually quite sweet…
But he was quickly scolding himself, “Jing’Er, what have I done…”
Gong Nanyan had already reached the kitchen. As soon as she had entered the kitchen, she said politely. “Prepare a set of meal and warm milk. Bring it to my abode. It has to be goat milk this time.”
Just as she turned her back, she looked back and said politely. “Thank you for your help.”
When she had left, the protégés in the kitchen were all stunned. Was this polite and beautiful maiden really their fourth protégé sister? She had actually addressed them so politely and her voice was actually so mesmerizing?
“Did something shocking happen to her?”
“Is this really our fourth protégé sister?”
“Maybe it is her sister?”
Gong Nanyan did not return to her abode but she had walked to her protégé mistress residence and waited quietly outside the large golden doors. Her eyes were brimming with tears. She had finally decided…
There was no need to announce her coming because her protégé mistress could sense her.
“Gong Nanyan, you may come in.”
Gong Nanyan quietly walked into her protégé mistress room and as soon as she saw Xuan Danfeng, she immediately kneeled down. “Protégé mistress, I begging you for your forgiveness!”
Xuan Danfeng was meditating when she had arrived. She slowly opened her eyes with a devious smile, “Nanyan, what wrong have you done? Why are you asking me for your forgiveness?”
Gong Nanyan was suddenly weeping bitterly as she could not withhold her tears anymore, “Your unfilial disciple wishes to leave the Lofty Snow Palace…”
Xuan Danfeng asked gently, “What happens to my lofty and unemotional Nanyan? What prompts you to say such bold words today? Is it because of Young Master Fang? Did he bully you? Hurry and tell me.”
Gong Nanyan nodded slowly and then she shook her head, “I am so despicable and shameless. After I have known that Young Master Fang has the healing focus ability, I’ve actually make use of him to cure me of my afflictions.”
Xuan Danfeng said casually, “You know that you don’t have to let me know and I won’t know at all.”
Gong Nanyan wept, “Protégé mistress has groomed me for a long time and you are my only kin…”
Xuan Danfeng said slowly, “Do you know that you have only cried on your first night here. From that point onward, there are no more emotions from you. We are not like the Heavenly Fragrance Villa where even the emotions are suppressed. But you have chosen to suppress all your emotions. You have purposely made everyone that wants to be close to you, to hate you or dislike you. Child, do you think that I do not know? And today you are weeping? This is so unlike the Nanyan that I’ve known.”
Gong Nanyan wept even more bitterly when she had heard her, “Protégé mistress really understands me…”
Xuan Danfeng sighed softly, “Just because I did not pick you to go to the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth, you felt disappointed and depressed?”
Gong Nanyan cried out, “This…is not the reason why I want to leave the Lofty Snow Palace…”
Xuan Danfeng walked over to her and tenderly lifted her up, “I know. This is because Young Master Fang has purified your inner core for you and that is why you are thinking of leaving?”
Gong Nanyan stammered with shock, “Protégé mistress knows…”
Xuan Danfeng tenderly said, “You are my favorite disciple. How do I not know that you are never happy here? I have promised Xiaofang not to reveal his bloodline to anyone. But I have purposely leaked it to you…”
All of a sudden Gong Nanyan got a jolt…
Xuan Danfeng nodded slowly and continued, “Now do you know why I have asked you to take care of him? It is to help you foster some friendly ties with him. I just never expected that you will take action so swiftly. Judging from your sudden decision, that silly lad must have completely purified your inner core for you.”
Then she added with a mischievous smile, “Or you have already surrendered your body to him? Hmph, it seems that he can’t resist my little beauty here.”
Gong Nanyan stammered, “He…didn’t touch me at all…”
Xuan Danfeng chuckled, “If he didn’t touch you at all, then how did he cure you?”
Gong Nanyan was flustered as she jumped into Xuan Danfeng embrace with a soft cry, “Protégé mistress, your Nanyan really did not know…”
Xuan Danfeng patted her tenderly, “Now don’t talk about leaving the clan. I won’t stop you if you decide not to cultivate further. At most, I find you another cultivation method that can suit you. Nanyan, do you know that you are like my daughter to me? Do you like this Young Master Fang?”
Gong Nanyan slowly nodded as she buried her head into Xuan Danfeng…
Xuan Danfeng smiled, “Then try to listen to him and pay more attention to his needs.”
Gong Nanyan said quietly, “I will…”
These were the reasons why Xuan Danfeng had Xiaofang brought back to the Lofty Snow Palace and why she had wanted Gong Nanyan to take special care of Xiaofang. She knew from the subtle expressions of Nanyan that she did not like to cultivate the Lofty Snow Cultivation Arts and that she had long wished to lead an ordinary life. However as a protégé of the Lofty Snow Palace, their most precious ability would be taken away. Even couples like Song Feixian and Xu Wenping was destined to be childless.
Xuan Danfeng said gently as she slowly wiped Nanyan’s tears, “Your happiness is in your hands. If you don’t make it happen, it will never happen.”
Then she smiled, “From now on, carefully instructs Young Master Fang on our celestial clan martial arts to him. You may even impart the Lofty Empyrean Sword Energies to him.”
Gong Nanyan was startled, “He…isn’t a direct protégé disciple of the Lofty Snow Palace. How can he be fit to learn the Lofty Empyrean Sword Energies? Moreover I can tell that he isn’t particular skillful in sword energies techniques.”
Xuan Danfeng smiled, “Don’t you underestimate him. We will all be depending on him in the future. Moreover he is only 17 and his future is boundless.”
Gong Nanyan was shaken as she stammered, “He is really only 17?!” She had not believed him when he had told her so and she had thought that he was an arrogant liar.
There was something that was still holding her back. Finally she found the courage to ask, “Protégé mistress, may I know who is this Jing’Er?”
Xuan Danfeng laughed softly, “So you know about his Jing’Er too? She is my Sister Ye Jing, the Holy Consort of the Holy Citadel City. Actually Xiaofang is not a young master from the Sky Sword Pavilion either. He is actually an elder of the Holy Citadel City. I’ve given him an alias here because I do not want anyone to know that he is here. That is because…”
As Xuan Danfeng described the battle at the Nuer Mountains to her, Gong Nanyan listened with more and more disbelief…
