Hai Kuanglang sighed and nodded. “Im afraid that Senior Martial Brother is the only person in this world who will think that it’s brotherly affection.”
Wan Yitong approved, There are not many people as pure as Eldest Martial Brother.
Zhan Fengting, This brat actually used “pure” to describe him?
He really was cheeky!
Zhan Fengting glanced at the two people with a smile that didn’t look like a smile, No matter whether it is or is not, it has nothing to do with you guys. Xuanzhi is still your Junior Martial Brother.
Who said it’s not? Hai Kuanglang chuckled slyly, touching his chin. I didnt expect that there would be a day when I could hold something over Lin Xuanzhi.
Wan Yitong spoke like he was singing a duet, This ‘hold something over him’ is really satisfying.
Enough, do what you have to do. Dont start gossiping whenever you get together. It’s not like you guys are parrots. Zhan Fengting then asked Wan Yitong, Do you need any help with dinner ingredients?
Of course I do! Wan Yitong widened his eyes in exaggeration. I usually only cook for Master, so I can finish alone, but today I have seven or eight mouths crying for food!
Then what are you still here for! Hai Kuanglang scolded.
Lets go together. Zhan Fengting said.
The three people happily walked towards the kitchen together.
Luminous Dream Pavilion was a place where Esteemed Lan Yue could steal half a days leisure time on ordinary days. The surroundings were full of splendid decorations, flowers, and the gentle murmur of running water. There was a large empty terrace outside the pavilion. One could see from a glance the Ninth Heaven Waterfall cascading down, a thousand meters tall, through the thick foliage.
The spiritual Qi was dense, mingling with the delightful fragrance of flowers. In the midst of this kind of picturesque mountains and water, Lin Xuanzhi saw Esteemed Lan Yue standing on the empty platform with both hands behind his back.
Teacher. Lin Xuanzhi stood still and gave a salute.
Esteemed Lan Yue turned around and looked at Lin Xuanzhi with light eyes. No need to be so courteous. There’s also no need to salute when you see me in the future.
Lin Xuanzhi lifted his eyes and looked up at Esteemed Lan Yue, who was a little bit taller than him, This is not in-line with propriety.
Esteemed Lan Yue came up and sat cross-legged on the praying mat on one side of a small stone table. Your fate is extremely noble. Accepting you as a disciple has already cut my lifespan and Dao attainment short. If I receive a few more salutes from you, I’m afraid that in a few days, I’ll be in the underworld, having tea with Yama!
Lin Xuanzhi, .
Esteemed Lan Yue lifted his eyelids and looked at Lin Xuanzhis grave expression. He thought that this youngest disciple was too timid and easily scared, so he relaxed his tone slightly, Actually, its not that bad. You dont have to be concerned.
Lin Xuanzhi took a deep breath and looked at Esteemed Lan Yue with seriousness. Master, what you said about an extremely noble fate that can kill close relatives is this true or not?
Esteemed Lan Yue was slightly stunned. He did say the former, but he never said the latter. Lin Xuanzhi must have guessed it himself.
Esteemed Lan Yue said lightly, It’s true that you have an extremely noble fate, and it’s also true that it can kill close relatives. However, your fathers death had nothing to do with your fate.
Lin Xuanzhi felt slightly depressed. If that’s true, then how can it have nothing to do with his death?
Esteemed Lan Yue glanced at him. Your fate is indeed noble, but it’s not like you’re the only one with a noble fate in this world.
Does Teacher mean that my dad also had a noble fate? But he is no longer alive.
Esteemed Lan Yue explained, Your dad’s fate is only slightly better than that of ordinary people, but he is extremely lucky. Your other father, however, possesses a grand and noble fate matchless under the heavens, and his fate is also surrounded by purple Qi. Even if he gives your dad a sliver of it, it’s more than enough to ensure your dad’s luck.
Lin Xuanzhi felt a great shock. Purple Qi was the most primordial and purest spiritual Qi in heaven and earth, and it also represented royalty. Was it possible that his unknown father was a king?
However, none of the kings in the Upper Realm’s Celestial clans fit the bill judging from his travels in the previous life.
I know what you want to ask; nothing more than whether your dad is alive or dead now, and if alive, where, or who your other father is. Esteemed Lan Yue continued, I can tell you that although your dad’s fate star is weak, he is still alive. That father of yours will never let him die easily.
Lin Xuan bit down hard on his lower lip as his eyes became slightly red.
Seeing this, Esteemed Lan Yue sighed in his heart. In the end, this was still a child.
Esteemed Lan Yue continued, As for that father of yours, I must not say, must not say. Even if I tell you right now, there is no other benefit besides adding to your worries. When the time comes, I’m afraid that you won’t have any choice but to know, even if you don’t want to.
Lin Xuanzhi closed his eyes and hid his violently surging emotions under his eyelids.
After a long time, he opened his eyes again and looked gratefully at Esteemed Lan Yue, Huarong thanks Master. Knowing that my dad is still alive, I have nothing else to ask for.
This was the best news he had heard since his rebirth.
In his last life, although he received Esteemed Lan Yue’s goodwill, he had already obtained the qualifications to enter Sky Peak Sect by that time. Naturally, he looked down on a mere Peak Master from Profound Sky Sect and rejected it without thinking. Thinking about it now, if he had come to Sinking Sword Peak early on and learned that Lin Zhan was still alive, then would his hatred of Yan Tianhen have weakened by a lot?
Would he and Yan Tianhen still walk to that irreversible outcome?
An inexplicably complex emotion swirled in Lin Xuanzhis heart.
Mysteriously and inexorably, when he first set foot on Sinking Sword Peak’s stairway, he had a feeling that the destinies of him and Yan Tianhen in their last life had already begun to completely turn around and be rewritten truly rewritten. This feeling was incomparably intense.
Esteemed Lan Yue said, Sit down and talk.
Lin Xuanzhi went to the opposite side of Esteemed Lan Yue and sat down cross-legged.
What was displayed on the stone table between the two was actually a disk with pieces scattered about like stars in the sky. Round gold and purple chess pieces were arranged one by one on the dense net, looking like the stars in the sky.
Lin Xuanzhi could see from a glance that this was not a chessboard, but an astrolabe and a powerful magic treasure.
Many years ago, when you were still in your infancy, Lin Zhan brought you to ask me to divine your fortune. From a distance, Esteemed Lan Yue’s hand covered the center of the astrolabe. It was as if those celestial bodies were pulled by some attractive force; one by one, they shuttled about and moved. Lin Xuanzhi felt dazzled looking at it.
These celestial bodies contained spiritual Qi unique to magic tools, and the realm was very high. Not just anyone could dare to look at them casually.
Lin Xuanzhi directed his gaze away from the astrolabe, looking towards Esteemed Lan Yue.
When Esteemed Lan Yue stopped, the arrangement on the astrolabe had already changed.
At that time, I tried to deduce your fate, but something that astonished me to no end happened at that moment. Esteemed Lan Yue withdrew his hand, lifting his eyes to look into Lin Xuanzhi’s eyes. Your natal chart is exceedingly unusual. Although the light was weak at that time, the purple Qi was soaring. Your fate star ought to be a natural-born Star of the Sovereign, but your fate star was sometimes strong and other times weak, flickering intermittently. Furthermore, because the purple Qi surrounding you was too strong, I couldn’t see your fate clearly.
Although Esteemed Lan Yue’s tone was bland, one could see the excitement in his eyes.
In this world, the fate stars that couldn’t be seen by a prophet were either one’s own fate or the fates of those close to the diviner, as well as those whose fates the Dao of Heaven itself protected from divination.
Esteemed Lan Yue could be said to be exceedingly diligent.
However, he had only just begun, wanting to use the Heaven-Seeing Eye unique to the prophet family to pull apart the clouds and scatter the fog and clearly see that fate star’s past and future, when he suffered a backlash from the Dao of Heaven and was grievously injured.
Nevertheless, relying on his years of experience and talent, Esteemed Lan Yue still caught a glimpse of some information that the Dao of Heaven may have intentionally revealed to him.
Lin Xuanzhi was the Star of Salvation, the chosen son of Heaven.
However, at the same time, Esteemed Lan Yue also saw that during Lin Xuanzhi’s adolescent years, there would be a major disaster; no one would be allowed to casually interfere in this great disaster. Only when he himself turned peril to safety and averted the danger could his wheel of destiny continue following the direction he chose.
When Lin Xuanzhi heard this, he was silent for a moment and asked, Dare to ask Master, is my great disaster considered over now?
Esteemed Lan Yue nodded, It has already passed, but when you grow into adulthood, the purple Qi around your fate star will be become even thicker than it is now. Where exactly you will end up and whether there will be any major disasters in the future; I can no longer see these with my present cultivation!
Lin Xuanzhi nodded, unconcerned.
Esteemed Lan Yue paused before continuing, There is another important matter that Teacher thinks is necessary to tell you.
Master, please speak.
Some time ago, when you were seriously injured, I once observed your fate star. At first, for a period of time, the direction of your fate stars path was the same as what I had observed before. Although the light was weak and had an aura of death about it, there was also no lack of opportunities to live. Therefore, when Su Mo climbed the mountain to request help from me in your dad’s place, I only told him to quietly wait for the good news.
Lin Xuanzhi paused for a moment and couldn’t help but interrupt, asking, Uncle Su once climbed Sinking Sword Peak because of me?”
Esteemed Lan Yue swept him a glance. Su Mo and your dad are best friends and have once gone through life and death together. Naturally, he is attentive to your affairs.
Lin Xuanzhis mood was complicated. But I havent seen much of Uncle Su since I was young.
Su Mo should have already told you Yan Tianhen’s identity and background. Esteemed Lan Yue said lightly, He and Lin Zhan used to communicate with each other frequently before Yan Tianhen was sent to the Five Continents. However, with Yan Tianhen now, they would have to be cautious with every step they took and couldn’t afford to let those who pursued Yan Tianhen notice. Su Mo and Lin Zhan deliberately avoided each other in advance just in case.”
Lin Xuanzhi suddenly realized.
Lin Zhan and Su Mo were both involved in the matter with Yan Tianhen. Yan Tianhen was beside Lin Zhan. If either Yan Tianhen or Lin Zhan was found one day, Su Mo could still be an unexpected trump card behind the scenes.
But if the two people had close relations, the pursuers might have directly uprooted their nest.
Lin Zhan died in the process of protecting Yan Tianhen, but Su Mo was absolutely safe; this was the best evidence.
Su Mo’s schemes are skilled; ordinary people cannot compare with him. Esteemed Lan Yue said, How was your relationship with Yuan Tianwen before you were injured?
Not many interactions.
When did you and he begin to have direct interactions?
Lin Xuanzhi thought for a moment. During my ex fiance’s 18-year-old coming of age ceremony, Yuan Tianwen showed up, interrupting it.
In the last life, the marriage document was destroyed by Yuan Tianwen’s methods. After the destruction, Yuan Tianwen also found Lin Xuanzhi and left him a lot of money, magic weapons, and medicinal pills as compensation for him. However, at that time, Lin Xuanzhi could only vomit blood in anger. He felt that his face was totally lost and threw away all those things.
Thinking about it again, Lin Xuanzhi was suddenly taken aback and said with some disbelief, Master, do you mean that Uncle Su didn’t prevent Yuan Tianwen from robbing my former fiance because he wanted to use Yuan Tianwen’s hand to lend me some help to the best of his abilities?
There must be a reason for this. Esteemed Lan Yue said, It’s not convenient for Su Mo to personally appear, so he schemed using his son. Otherwise, no matter how much he doted on Yuan Tianwen, he would never let Yuan Tianwen fight over your fiance and not care about it. Moreover
Esteemed Lan Yue raised his eyebrow and spoke with deep meaning, Your fiance is also a schemer. I heard some rumors about him from Su Mo’s side. The earlier this kind of person can leave you, the earlier you’ll be safe. Su Mo is accustomed to taking advantage of the situation for his own benefit. He is especially good at resolving a chaotic situation in a calm manner.
