Jialan Yuntian’s expression sank. Everyone turned to stare at him and someone spoke up, “Governor Qin, don’t go too far. The Jialan Clan Leader has already given you sufficient face and is even willing to marry a young miss of the Jialan Clan to you. Why must you be so forceful?”
“The conflict between me and the Jialan Monarch most probably cannot be resolved. Hence, one of us must die. Isn’t that right?” Qin Wentian smiled at the Jialan Monarch.
The icy look in the Jialan Monarch’s eyes was obvious to the extreme as he stared at Qin Wentian. If he knew that Qin Wentian would have such status today, he would have spared no expense to kill him back then.
“Since this is the case, this old man shall not speak on this further. Governor Qin, you can consider my words well after you return. My Jialan Clan will definitely not make any moves against you. I hope that the Jialan Clan’s concession will be able to win Governor Qin’s friendship.” Jialan Yuntian stared at Qin Wentian as he spoke. “Let’s forget about this matter temporarily. Come, I’ll toast Governor Qin.”
“Please.” Qin Wentian lifted his cup, the two of them then drained the contents within.
Because of Qin Wentian’s existence, the atmosphere of the banquet was no longer as relaxed as before. After drinking a few more cups of wine, Qin Wentian spoke, “There are still some matters I need to handle in the governor’s manor. I, Qin, will take my farewell first.”
“Right. Since this is the case, please feel free to return. Qiuyue, help me send Governor Qin away.” Jialan Yuntian spoke.
“Yes Grandpa,” Jialan Qiuyue stood up and walked to Qin Wentian’s side. “Governor Qin, let me send you to the entrance.”
“You are too polite, I can go there alone.” Qin Wentian rose up from his seat, but Jialan Qiuyue merely smiled and continued following beside him, leading him out. Qin Wentian’s serving girl quietly followed behind them.
“Governor Qin, why must you not be so amenable to reason? My Jialan Clan has been in Lifire City for far too many years. At that time, the palace lord wasn’t even the Lifire Empyrean. My grandpa treats you so well but it isn’t because he’s afraid of stirring up trouble, he was merely respecting you for your character. In fact, he was even willing to forgo revenge for my uncle.” Jialan Qiuyue softly spoke, one couldn’t say that beauties would truly always have an advantage, this was especially so for exceptional beauties. Jialan Qiuyue’s words didn’t cause Qin Wentian to feel any sense of disgust at all.
“For some things, it’s good enough if Miss Jialan understands it in your heart. If back then the daughter of the Jialan Monarch, Jialan Mingyue, was the same as you, maybe there wouldn’t have been this hatred today.” Qin Wentian smiled as he replied. Jialan Qiuyue’s beautiful eyes flashed with contemplation before she smiled, “I hope Governor Qin can think things through.”
Only after sending Qin Wentian out of the Jialan Clan did the main character of today’s celebration, Jialan Qiuyue, return. Qin Wentian’s eyes gleamed with sharpness. This Jialan Clan was truly something exceptional.
This invitation had a few key points to it. Firstly, they wanted him to see the Jialan Clan’s strength. Secondly, they wanted to cause a gap to appear between him and Di Tian. Sadly, they had no idea he was Di Tian and Di Tian was him. Thirdly, a most important point that was somewhat obscure but was extremely terrifying – the Jialan Clan took the initiative to invite him and wanted peace but he directly rejected. If this matter spread to the Lifire Empyrean, what would he think about it? Would he feel suspicious?
After Qin Wentian left, many people in the banquet expressed rage for Qin Wentian’s attitude and hoped that the Jialan Clan would act against him. However, Jialan Yuntian didn’t express any stance and didn’t speak about this matter any longer. After Jialan Qiuyue returned, the atmosphere slowly returned to normal as everyone enjoyed the banquet.
After several months, a guest came to the northern governor’s manor looking for Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian immediately met with this guest.
“Governor Qin, how is the current situation of the north?” The Purple Moon Immortal Emperor smiled. This person was none other than the personal handmaiden of the Lifire Empyrean, the Purple Moon Immortal Emperor. Her beautiful eyes flickered with a smile, exuding an extraordinary elegance.
“Everything is good. Recently, there has not been much commotion here, the Jialan Clan is also temporarily very quiet.” Qin Wentian laughed. The two of them then sat down together as they sipped at the prepared tea.
“Oh?” The Purple Moon Immortal Emperor laughed. “But I heard that not too long ago, the Jialan Clan held a birthday celebration for Jialan Qiuyue and had invited Governor Qin over.”
Qin Wentian’s heart trembled. As expected, the Lifire Empyrean had sent the Purple Moon Immortal Emperor here to inquire about this matter.
However, he still had some doubts. Even if the Lifire Empyrean had some suspicions, there was no need for him to do things so clearly, right?
“Mhm.” Qin Wentian calmly nodded. “Also, the Jialan Clan is extremely cunning, even wanting to arrange a marriage alliance by sending a young lady from their clan to be wed as a concubine to me.”
As he spoke, even Qin Wentian himself also shook his head.
“Such a good deal, why did Governor Qin not agree to it?” The Purple Moon Immortal Emperor warmly smiled, exuding alluringness. Qin Wentian saw the look of passion in the eyes of the elegant and dignified Purple Moon’s face as he silently mused that the Lifire Empyrean truly knows how to enjoy life. He smiled and replied, “Leaving aside the possibility that this might be the Jialan Clan’s scheme, even if it is not, is it possible that I would agree?”
The Purple Moon Immortal Emperor’s beautiful eyes stared at Qin Wentian and Qin Wentian calmly matched her gaze. The look of passion in her eyes intensified and Qin Wentian bitterly smiled, “Fairy, if you look at me like that, I won’t be able to endure it for much longer.”
“Oh? How would you not be able to endure it?” The Purple Moon Immortal Emperor teased, as a playful look appeared on her face.
“Don’t. The palace lord would kill me.” Qin Wentian shifted his eyes away as the Purple Moon Immortal Emperor started laughing. Her eyes gleamed with light, how would there be any woman in the world that didn’t want people to admire her beauty? Let alone the fact that Qin Wentian was only admiring and wouldn’t dare to profane her at all. She naturally wouldn’t mind it.
“Let’s get to serious business. Governor Qin, the palace lord told me to make a trip here to pass you a message. If, in the future, when Governor Qin accomplishes deeds of great merit, it’s possible for him to allow Ye Qianyu to leave the Lifire Jail.” The Purple Moon Immortal Emperor spoke, causing Qin Wentian’s eyes to flash as he stared at her. He then nodded, “In that case, Fairy, please help me to pass my thanks to palace lord for his great kindness.”
“Mhm, I still need to go to some other places. I’ll take my farewell first.” The Purple Moon Immortal Emperor stood up.
“Let me walk you to the entrance.” Qin Wentian also rose and sent her out. After she left, a look of pondering appeared on his face. At this moment, a voice rang out in his mind. He immediately took out his messaging crystal and asked, “Beauty Xiao, is there something you need to look for me for?”
“Hehe, Governor Qin, you promised to come by my southern governor’s manor when you have the time. So, are you free now?” Beauty Xiao’s voice that carried hints of enticement rang out in Qin Wentian’s mind. He laughed and replied, “Beauty Xiao, I’m temporarily unable to leave the northern city regions.”
“Oh? What if I tell you I just received a very important piece of news?” Beauty Xiao seemed to be very confident, she was still laughing as she spoke. “This is a news regarding Ye Qianyu.”
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed, important news about Ye Qianyu?
He inclined his head and stared at the back view of the departing Purple Moon Immortal Emperor as his eyes narrowed. “Beauty Xiao, can you tell me what is it exactly?”
“Come to my governor’s manor first. I’ll tell you then.” Beauty Xiao giggled. Qin Wentian kept his messaging crystal as his figure flashed, soaring into the distance.
At this moment, Qin Wentian entered the southern governor’s manor. A serving maid led her into a beautiful garden that was beside a lake. This wasn’t the first time he came here. Although previously, it was his avatar that came, he naturally knew about it as their memories were linked.
“Governor Qin, please wait here for a few moments, our governor will be here shortly.” The serving maid bowed and smiled. After that, she turned and left the area, leaving Qin Wentian here alone.
The atmosphere of the garden felt tranquil, there was also arranged a pot of good tea on the table here. He lifted his teacup and quietly enjoyed the taste of it.
Fifteen minutes passed but Beauty Xiao wasn’t here yet. His immortal sense extended outwards, drifting to the place by the side of the lake where Di Tian and Beauty Xiao went to before. The lake’s waters were clear and crystalline. Inside the lake, a beautiful woman was currently bathing. Her inky black long hair were tinged with wetness, the upper body that was revealed had skin so soft that it felt that the gust from a breeze would break it. Her face was flawless, her smile filled with endless charm.
Qin Wentian speechlessly retracted his immortal sense. A moment later, he heard Beauty Xiao’s charming voice drifting over, “You’ve already seen it, what’s the point of retracting your immortal sense now? Governor Qin, do you want to bathe together? The temperature of the water is extremely comfortable.”
“Beauty Xiao, you should know why I’m here.” Qin Wentian spoke.
“Come closer and I’ll tell you.” Beauty Xiao giggled. Qin Wentian stood up. With a flash of his silhouette, he swiftly appeared at the lake as he quietly watched the beauty bathing in the lake’s waters.
“Can you tell me now?” Qin Wentian calmly regarded her as he asked.
Beauty Xiao slowly began to make her way back by wading through the water. Her figure was gradually revealed. Her snow-like skin was drool-inducing and her piece of clothing so translucent that it might very well not exist. Even Qin Wentian’s heart stirred when he saw that.
Beauty Xiao was stroking her hair. She then swept her hair to the back, causing her charm to increase in intensity.
Walking towards the shore, Beauty Xiao then stood beside Qin Wentian, exuding seductiveness as she smiled, “Governor Qin, do you wish to hear the news now or do you want to wait for me to change my clothes?”
“I’ll wait here for you then.” Qin Wentian calmly spoke, but his state of heart wasn’t calm at all. With such a scene before them, how could any man remain calm? However, his state of heart could be considered extraordinary given his cultivation base. His self-control was naturally extremely strong.
“Alright, Governor Qin wait for me then.” Beauty Xiao’s eyes were capable of hooking souls away from mortals. She brushed past Qin Wentian, leaving behind her fragrance. Qin Wentian then walked towards the nearby pavilion and sat there, quietly waiting. Not long after, Beauty Xiao appeared, wearing a nightgown like she was ready for bed. Her fair skin had hints of the redness of health within. Despite her change in attire, it did nothing to diminish her charm.
“Beauty Xiao, can you tell me now?” Qin Wentian pressured.
“Why are you in such a hurry. Could it be that before your eyes, I’m not charming at all?” Beauty Xiao spoke with some resentment.
“Beauty Xiao, can it be that you don’t know how strong your charm is? It’s just that you should know the person imprisoned in the Lifire Jail should have been me instead of Ye Qianyu. I naturally would be very concerned with news regarding her. I truly hope Beauty Xiao will tell me.” Qin Wentian bitterly smiled.
“Hug me, I’ll whisper in your ear.” Beauty Xiao charmingly smiled. Qin Wentian’s face was filled with black lines. He looked at how Beauty Xiao was looking at him and knew that she wouldn’t rest until he did so.
Walking up to her, Qin Wentian pulled her into an embrace and spoke lightly, “Can you tell me now?”
Beauty Xiao also embraced him, leaning fully against his body. She leaned closer and breathed into his ears before whispering softly, “I received news that the Lifelong Saint Hall wants to move Ye Qianyu away from the Lifire Jail.”
