Chapter 134: Making Threats and Promises

After Bai Luochu spoke, she left the study room without turning back . When she exited the Remote Paddy Inn, she even pushed her movement skill to the limit and returned to the residence . She was afraid that Ying Lan would chase after her to make her give up on the journey to the Falling Cloud Mountain Range .

Ying Lan watched as his mistress vanished instantly and knew that he couldn’t chase after her even if he wanted to . He was cursing the speed at which Bai Luochu improved and the fact that she was adamant about heading over to the Falling Cloud Mountain Range . Since he had no chance of convincing her, he was no longer at a loss of what to do as he went straight into his study room . As soon as he stepped into the study room, Ying Lan thought that since he couldn’t persuade his mistress, why not look for that silver-haired man to threaten him and make him promise that he would protect the mistress with all he had? Ying Lan thought that it was a great idea and made his way to the silver-haired man’s residence .

This time, Ying Lan didn’t hesitate, after all, this matter was already a done deal . He was here simply because of his mistress’ safety and it was something that he wouldn’t feel hesitant about . Once Ying Lan arrived at the entrance of that silver-haired man’s courtyard, he immediately knocked on the door .

The silver-haired man was currently enjoying wine while admiring the moon . When he heard someone knocking on the door, he felt rather curious . Since he didn’t have any friends in the capital city, who would look for him at this time?

After thinking about it, the silver-haired man walked straight to the entrance and opened the door . When he saw Ying Lan, he instantly knew that Ying Lan was here because of the trip to the Falling Cloud Mountain Range . Without delay, he invited Ying Lan into the house .

Ying Lan originally wanted to mock the silver-haired man for opening the door so late at night . However, when he recalled the silver-haired man’s strength, the words couldn’t leave his mouth . If he was to ask his question, he might be made fun of instead . He wasn’t going to do such things to dig a pit for himself . He entered the door without reservations and headed straight for the stone table in the yard and sat down .

The silver-haired man poured a cup for wine for Ying Lan before asking, “Why is Commander Ying Lan visiting at such a late hour?”

In fact, the silver-haired man already guessed Ying Lan’s purpose . He was asking because he wanted Ying Lan to take the initiative to beg him, allowing him to gain the upper hand in this conversation .

Ying Lan wasn’t a greenhorn and he naturally knew the silver-haired man’s intention . But right now, the mistress’ safety was of paramount concern and he couldn’t be bothered . He immediately explained his purpose of visit . “I am afraid you have already guessed my purpose of visit . I still don’t approve of you following Master to the Falling Cloud Mountain Range, but since the Master has already made up his mind, as a subordinate, I can’t say anything else . I hope you can understand that I am willing to look for you, not because I trust you . It’s because I need you to spend more effort when protecting my master during the trip to the Falling Cloud Mountain Range . ”

Ying Lan finished his statement while the silver-haired man kept silent . Ying Lan was immediately agitated but he knew that he couldn’t do anything to anger the silver-haired man . Hence, he swallowed the ball of rage in his heart and said, “I hope you can understand the importance of protecting Master . You and I have similar cultivation and if anything happens to Master, I will risk my life to kill you . ”

The silver-haired man finally raised his head to look at Ying Lan with his limpid eyes . He still had an indifferent expression but he was cursing silently as he thought about how Ying Lan was asking him for help . Wasn’t this a threat? In fact, even if Ying Lan didn’t come, he was going to make sure that Bai Luochu would return unscathed without losing even one strand of hair .

The silver-haired man was a person who was proud and aloof . He didn’t want to fight with Ying Lan and he quickly replied, “Commander Ying doesn’t have to worry . I will definitely protect him . If there is nothing else, please return . I still have to rest . ”

The silver-haired man immediately chased Ying Lan out . When Ying Lan noticed that he had already achieved his objective, he didn’t say anything else and left .

The silver-haired man closed the door and returned to the stone table . He looked at the cup of untouched wine he had poured for Ying Lan and finished it all . He raised his head and looked at the beautiful moon as he lamented softly, “The trip to the Falling Cloud Mountain Range… is truly worth looking forward to . ”

After speaking, he emptied the last of his wine and returned to his room . Before long, the candles were extinguished and it was obvious that he had fallen asleep .

On this night, the relay station where the members of the Phoenix King Valley were staying was particularly lively .

After Pei Wuchen exited from Feng Wan’er’s room during the day, he headed straight for the old hall master’s room . However, he was stopped at the entrance and was told that the old hall master was busy and was not going to meet any random person . Since Pei Wuchen was the last disciple of the Phoenix King Valley Master and also one of the officials in the Cloud Water Nation’s imperial court, he wasn’t a fool . How could he not know the old hall master’s intention? He too knew that he had gone overboard when dealing with this matter . Pei Wuchen said nothing else and knelt on the ground with a ‘plop’ . He faced the old hall master in the room and yelled out, “This rebellious disciple knows his sin . But this matter is too urgent and I can’t deal with it any other way! The only thing now is to discuss with Hall Master a method where both sides benefit . Wuchen wishes for Hall Master to give me a chance!”

These words were profound like the ocean but there was no response . Pei Wuchen understood that he had angered the old hall master deeply and he didn’t stand up . He simply knelt in the yard, hoping that he could move the old hall master . . .

Although the weather wasn’t too hot, basking in the sun for a long time was also a kind of suffering . Furthermore, Pei Wuchen was kneeling on the ground and the ground was hot enough to fry an egg . Right now, Pei Wuchen was like a bun in the steamer .

Feng Wan’er delivered food and water to him during this time but he didn’t accept it . After all, the more he suffered now, the higher the chance of him convincing the old hall master . After kneeling for an entire day, his lips were splitting and his body was swaying . Feng Wan’er was feeling the pain in her heart and she couldn’t bear it anymore . She didn’t bother about Pei Wuchen’s refusal and used a handkerchief soaked in water to dab on Pei Wuchen’s lips, allowing Pei Wuchen some relief .

It was already time for dinner and it was clear that the old hall master wasn’t intending to bother with Pei Wuchen .

Feng Wan’er became impatient and wanted to rush through the door and argue with the old hall master . In the end, Pei Wuchen stopped her . “Wan’er, you must not . If you enter right now, everything I have done today will be in vain . ”
