Chapter 265 Let’s Get Married!
The news of Xuanyuan’s return to Fighting Dragon City spread as fast as a plague.
What Xuanyuan did in the Eastern Dynasty had made everyone happy.
The Hai family was in charge of the surveillance department and supervised the whole Eastern Dynasty. They were very powerful. If it weren’t for Xuanyuan, their secretly cultivated force in the Eastern Dynasty would not have been destroyed, and the Hai family would be stronger than ever.
It was well-known that the Fighting Dragon Sect had always been at odds with the Eastern Dynasty, but on the surface, the two had maintained a good relationship.
However, when it came to competing for interests, the Fighting Dragon Sect would not hesitate to bare their fangs. With the power of Nightmare Ghost, Xuanyuan nearly destroyed half of the Hai family, causing the Hai family an irrecoverable loss. The whole Hai family didn’t have strength to fight back. The royal family of Eastern Dynasty and the Yin family could only persuade them to call for a truce. That made the master of the Fighting Dragon Sect and his senior cadres extremely happy at Xuanyuan’s actions, seeing it as him on behalf of the Fighting Dragon Sect.
“Xuanyuan, what a rising star! Excellent! He tarnished the reputation of the Eastern Dynasty and caused the Hai family great loss!”
“Only because of the power of Nightmare Ghost. He would have already been killed if he was all on his own.”
“Let’s see you try it then. At least he can use the power of Nightmare Ghost. What can you do? “
“In any case, Xuanyuan has really done us all a massive favour.”
There were conflicts between the cultivators in the Eastern Dynasty and the Fighting Dragon Sect, since the rise and fall of the two groups had a massive impact on their respective cultivators. If the Eastern Dynasty fell into decline, a cultivator from there would feel ashamed. Others might look down on him, thinking that cultivators from such a powerless place must also be powerless.
“Haha! That’s right. It’s all thanks to Xuanyuan! Look at these arrogant cultivators from the Eastern Dynasty!”
Comments and discussions kept going in the Fighting Dragon Sect.
Xuanyuan didn’t bother with what those around him were saying. He ignored them and entered Taibai Trading.
Youxue turned into a human being, and stood motionless like a statue. He guarded the entrance of the corridor leading to the agarwood House. Many people who passed by the entrance of the corridor couldn’t help but feel awed when they saw Youxue. For them, the aura of an emperor class fighter was too strong.
Surrounded by the smell of agarwood, Xuanyuan calmly sat down in an armchair, facing Bai Youniang.
Bai Youniang was excited. Her fingertips slightly quivered, and her voice trembled.
“You are finally back! Over the last two years, the master of the Fighting Dragon Sect, the head of the Eastern Dynasty, the Lightning King and the Soul Demon have all fallen. I thought even you died in the Land of Darkness. I was so worried about you!”
“I’m here now! I came to see you directly after I got back from the capital of the Eastern Dynasty.” Xuanyuan smiled slightly.
“Of course I know that! I’m so very happy to see you!” Bai Youniang smiled sweetly. Her chest was fuller than when he had last seen her. The faint scent that exuded from her was enchanting. Looking at Xuanyuan’s free and easy face, Bai Youniang felt a bit downcast. But soon, she had a confident face again and asked, “Xuanyuan, shall we get married?”
“What?” Xuanyuan was stunned, unable to respond.
Bai Youniang stood up and walked to Xuanyuan. She sat on his knee, put her hands around Xuanyuan’s neck, and whispered sweetly, “Shall. We. Get. Married?”
“…” Xuanyuan almost fainted. Xuanyuan could feel Bai Youniang’s breasts touching him, and heard her short, gasping breaths. He could see her face, flushed red in embarrassment. Obviously, it had taken a lot of courage to propose to him.
“We haven’t seen each other for two years, and it seems like you’ve developed a sense of humor. I’m far too young to get married. Plus, I have to roam the world in order to find a way to deal with the Heart-Devouring Bug.”
“If we get married, it would be justified for me to leave and travel the North, the West, the South, and even the Mo Land and the Yao Land to find a way to dispel the Heart Devouring Bug. My father is the president of Taibai Trading in the East, so I believe that his social network can help us find it out. ” Bai Youniang was beaming.
Xuanyuan felt warm and moved. Obviously, Bai Youniang had already known about this, but she had still put forth such a proposal. However, he thought that it would be selfish to accept that.
“Thank you, Youniang, but I can’t accept your proposal. If we can’t find a cure, I’ll end up dying. That is just far too unfair to you.”
“It doesn’t matter if we can’t find it. We can always start over. While we are looking for it, I will help you cultivate so that you can break through the Fighting Xian Realm and reincarnate. As long as you can live well in the future, nothing else matters to me.” Bai Youniang smiled gently.
“My next life? That’s too far away. Apart from that, my constitution is far too unique for me to just give it up and reincarnate. Thank you for all you have done for me, Youniang. You spent 50 billion king coins on Tianji to affirm the possible existence of Fighting Earth, right?” Xuanyuan asked with a smile.
Bai Youniang was surprised and nodded. Obviously, she did not know why Xuanyuan would know.
“You must also have been the one that threatened the Hai family when I was getting chased. I don’t know who else with that ability would be willing to help me, except for you.”
Bai Youniang pressed her face against her chest, and said, ” If it’s in my power, I won’t let you be hunted down.”
“You have done so much for me. I can’t possibly repay you. Please don’t talk about getting married. It can only hurt you in the long run. I’ve been used to being alone for a long time. Now, I’m going to make a breakthrough on my own without any issues. Besides, I can’t do this to you, Youniang. Do you understand?” Xuanyuan said softly, gently holding Bai Youniang. She felt extremely warm.
“I understand.” Bai Youniang’s eyes welled up with tears, and she held Xuanyuan tighter. After a long silence, Bai Youniang suddenly said, “I’ll be waiting for you.”
Xuanyuan’s heart tightened, and he smiled bitterly, “What are you doing, lady Youniang? The world’s full of good men, and many of them are pursuing you. What’s so good about me? “
Bai Youniang sniffed, let go of Xuanyuan, and mysteriously said, “You don’t understand.”
Xuanyuan did not know how to reply. Outside the agarwood House, the Pig shook his head and sighed, “It’s really sad. This kid doesn’t understand the pain us bachelors. I used to be a king surrounded by thousands of concubines, but look at me now. I am merely a lonely bachelor. What a sad story! We should be able to pick up any woman we like. It’s fine for an emperor to have several concubines.”
“Xuanyuan’s mind has not settled down. Rejecting Youniang is the best decision for him. He is different from many people in this world.” Greed talked with the Pig.
Bai Youniang came to the seventh floor of Treasure Tower with Xuanyuan, the Pig, and Youxue. The entire 7th floor was cleared for just them.
The floor was still round, but it was smaller. There were many holes in the walls, which contained pieces of top rank heaven class instruments.
She knew that in the past two years, Xuanyuan had advanced his strength by leaps and bounds. Although she was now an imperial fighter, Xuanyuan’s Qi was far vaster than hers. Xuanyuan’s Qi could now support the operation of the top rank heaven class instruments. However, controlling a xian class instrument was still too difficult for him.
The armor he was using was no longer suitable for Xuanyuan. On the day when the Heart-Devouring Bug suddenly attacked Xuanyuan, the armor did not automatically protect him. Even if it had responded, it still might not have been able to resist the Heart-Devouring Bug.
The gifts Bai Youniang gave to Xuanyuan were always of the highest quality.
Bai Youniang walked over to a robe with the aura of the Dragon Race and said softly, “This is the Heavenly Dragon Fighting Robe, which was made of the sinews and scales of dragons. It was refined with various kinds of top-tier materials found all over the world, before being struck by lightning. It is a robe that could be ranked as xian class.”
The Heavenly Dragon Fighting Robe was a top rank heaven class instrument that could ascend to the xian class. The robe also had the ability to wrap any enemy in it, while also boasting extremely high defensive power.
Xuanyuan nodded and said with a smile. “That’s exactly what I need.”
Bai Youniang set aside the Heavenly Dragon Fighting Robe, and went to another section. She took out a dragon crown. On top it was a lifelike green dragon shrouded with Dragon Qi. Bai Youniang said, “It is the Dragon Emperor Raining Helmet, a top rank heaven class instrument that, once again, can ascend to xian class. It was carved from the horn of a rain dragon that descended from a green dragon, and then forged with thirty-six different treasures, one of them being the Rain Healing Crystals, for 18 years, before it was struck by lightning three times so as to have the ability to release a strong protective force and large-scale rain fog for group healing. It is the best instrument you could bring with you to fight in the battlefield…”
Obviously, Bai Youniang had already considered its strategic benefits. Xuanyuan was very satisfied with the instrument she chose.
“The Xian’s Arch of Five Elements was forged with the essence of heaven and earth received by the rare Five Element Elf for thirty-six years. With only one more step, it can enter the xian class. It is not as good as the Heavenly Souls Arch at damaging souls, but its force is amazing. What’s more, as long as the Qi of the five elements exists where its target is, the arrow that it shoots out tracks and homes in on its target until they are pierced. Its one weakness is that it consumes a lot of Qi.”
“It doesn’t matter. It’s suitable enough for me!” Xuanyuan smiled slightly. Bai Youniang was understanding him more and more.
