17 - This tragic but honest hero (05)

"Ah Jin, have you ever loved someone?"

Hearing his words, Kui Jin frowned slightly.

Is this person about to start telling him about his relationship with that spy?

"No." So there is no need to ask me about feelings.

Xie Chenyang's hand on his waist couldn't help rubbing it slightly: "I hadn't loved anyone before, until I met you."

Kui Jin's heart jumped.

Xie Chenyang thought of the last world and closed his eyes: "When your sword crossed that wall and you came to me, I saw you and I knew what love was."

Lost and recovered love.

Kui Jin's hands that were soothing him stiffened slightly on his back.

He should scold him for being so shameless.

But he could hear the sincere emotion in his tone.

"Ah Jin, when I kissed you after waking up that day, I didn't think of you as someone else, I just couldn't help it," Xie Chenyang said softly, "Except for you, I haven't been very close to anyone else, so how can I treat you as someone else."

"That Demon Gate spy..."

"There was nothing between us, nothing happened with me and him that night, but he put on an act deliberately. But then I never got close to him."


Kui Jin's throat was a bit dry.

"It's a lie that I want to talk with you all night, the truth is I want to sleep with you," Xie Chenyang held his waist tightly. "For you, we have only known each other for a few days. For me, it feels like years, Ah Jin, my every word is sincere, can you trust me?"

Although these words were given to him by the system.

They really were sincere.

It's just that his sincerity had been interpreted into words by the system.

Kui Jin's heart was a little conflicted.

It was undeniable that Xie Chenyang's sword technique that night surprised him.

And when they were returning, he could not help but pity the sight of him falling into his arms covered in blood.

Yes, pity.

While carrying him on the road, when his shidi wanted to take him, he didn't really care about their injuries, but simply didn't want to give him away.

He thought that if Ah Fo was in the place of Xi Yang, he would never have had those emotions.

For many years, his relatives and friends had never made him feel this way, how could a person he’d just met feel different?

Kui Jin wasn’t someone who couldn’t see into his own heart.

So he knew that he was moved by surprise and pity for this suffering person.

"Ah Jin, I shouldn't be so abrupt," Xie Chenyang tilted his head slightly and kissed his ear. "But I don't want to wait anymore. If I wait one more day, then I’ll have one less day with you. I love you."


"Will you spend the rest of your life with me?"

"I wish..."

Before Kui Jin finished speaking, Xie Chenyang couldn't help himself anymore, he held his face and kissed him.

A breeze passed.

Their robes caught the wind and their hair tangled.

Xie Chenyang was so excited that he was able to get intimate with his lover again.

Kui Jin was surprised by his familiarity, suspecting that he had lied when he said he’d never been intimate with others before, but he gradually became immersed in his affectionate lingering.

The kiss ended.

Xie Chenyang gently wiped the corners of his lips, looking at his plain and gentle face, his eyes were smiling, and there was a charming warmth.

【He still looks the same, his ears are red even though his face is still indifferent and cold.】

System: "This is emotional management, you should learn some."

【Ha, that’s right you’ve never seen his expression when he’s moving under me.】


The system was speechless: "Why should I know that?"

【Of course you’re not allowed to see it. This is my love, only I can watch him. Your mosaic mechanism is really great.】

System: "……"

Xie Chenyang took Wei Jin's hand: "Go back to Shanzhuang with me, otherwise every time I come to see you, I’ll have to climb the mountain, which is quite tiring."

Kui Jin's voice was faint: "Tired?"

Xie Chenyang nodded honestly.

"Then don't come to me."

Kui Jin pulled his hand away and returned to the wooden house.

Xie Chenyang looked at his back blankly:【Why is he angry?】

System: "Huh?"

【Good system.】

System: "At that time, you shouldn't say, 'Coming to see you is so tiring’, but ‘I want to be with you all the time so go back with me?', and so on."

What's wrong with being tired!

Xie Chenyang pulled his hair:【It's troublesome and I am tired.】

System: "Then if he doesn't want to go back to Shanzhuang with you, will you not visit him because you can’t be bothered climbing?"

【No, although it’s tiring. But if he really doesn’t want to come down, I’ll definitely go to him instead.】

"That's not what you said."

Xie Chenyang: "..."

Alas, a man's heart is really hard to understand.

Then, he ran into the house, picked up Kui Jin and ran down the mountain.

"Xi Yang!"

Xie Chenyang: "I want to see you every moment, so you have to come back with me."

"You let me go and I’ll come by myself."



Xie Chenyang put down Kui Jin.

Kui Jin turned around and walked back up the mountain.

Xie Chenyang widened his eyes and wanted to grab him.

Kui Jin avoided his hand: "Wait for me here, I’m going to get my sword and luggage."

Xie Chenyang: "Oh."


The martial artists who received the call-to-arms, no matter what the reason, prepared themselves and were ready to leave.

The first thing Xie Chenyang did after bringing Kui Jin back to Shanzhuang was to call all the disciples of Shanzhuang.

"This is Kui Jin, my love. From today onwards, he will be another master of Mingdao Shanzhuang. Seeing him is like seeing me."

The disciples just paused, then shouted one after another, "Second Master!"

Kui Jin had rescued them, and no one thought ill of him.

They were glad to hear he wanted to be with their master.

They were actually worried for a while, wondering whether or not the master could let go of the Demon Gate spy, or whether he would be tricked by him again.

Now that he had another love, things couldn’t be better!

Receiving the expectant look of the disciples, Kui Jin said: "..."

Disciples: Come on, second master! Please be sure to lock away the master, don't let others coax him away!

"Oh? Isn't Ah Yang's fiance me?"

A soft voice sounded.

Xie Chenyang turned around and saw Ruan Zhou's soft face.

The two Baihe Valley disciples following him lowered their heads concealing their faces.

Kui Jin glanced at Xie Chenyang in a cool manner.

Xie Chenyang said, "It's not that, I didn't! That was just a childhood joke!"

"My mother and aunt made a good deal. It's not a joke," Ruan Zhou sighed lightly. "You all go down first."

The disciples Baihe Valley glared at Xie Chenyang vaguely before taking the order to retreat.

Kui Jin glanced at Ling Yi.

Ling Yi understood, and with a quick wave of his hand, he also took away the disciple of Mingdao Shanzhuang.

There were only three people left in the yard.

Ruan Zhou met Xie Chenyang's irritable gaze, and said helplessly: "You’re so anxious, you can't even wait for us to leave before announcing this."

Xie Chenyang said inexplicably: "It’s our business that Ah Jin and I are together, why do I need to wait for you to leave before we announce it?"

Ruan Zhou sighed lightly, "In whose name do you think I brought the disciples of Baihe Valley to collect the dead bodies for the people of Mingdao Shanzhuang?"

Xie Chenyang: "Could it be..."

Ruan Zhou nodded: "If it weren't for the marriage contract between you and me, and between the two schools, how could my disciples be willing to...otherwise, could it be that shifu didn’t know?"

He didn't know, he thought they coveted the villa.

Even though Mingdao Shanzhuang had suffered this catastrophe, it was also the number one sect in the world. A lean camel was still bigger than a horse, and no one knew whether Mingdao Shanzhuang still had any secrets.

Xie Chenyang: "I thought it was because of the friendship between the two..."

Actually, thinking about it carefully, the friendship between Mingdao Shanzhuang and Baihe Valley wasn’t deep.

That time they basically begged to get into Baihe Valley to treat his illness.

Their mothers exchanged letters afterwards, but it was limited to the personal relationship between the two women.

Therefore, when Xie Chenyang said this sentence, he knew it was wrong.

"My mother was very worried after Mingdao Shanzhuang was breached by the Demon Gate," Ruan Zhou said with a wry smile, "She had a bad feeling, and asked me to bring some people to help."

Baihe Valley has always been indisputable and never fought.

Without a reasonable reason, they weren’t the best choice to come to Mingdao Shanzhuang to clean up the mess.

Xie Chenyang actually didn't understand the politics, in his mind, he just needed to make sure his fists were big enough.

But the rest of his sect was only in their early twenties, so he thought of summoning other martial artists to attack Demon Gate together.

On the way back, he was ready to take his disciples to tend to the dead.

When he saw that everything was already handled in an orderly manner by Baihe Valley, he was grateful and thought about how to repay the first sect who reached out to help. He didn't really think they had any particular reason for helping.

"I’m grateful for your help, and I’m sorry that my failing to understand the situation made you lose face."

In the eyes of Baihe Valley's disciples, he must be a scumbag who used then threw away Ruan Zhou.


Ruan Zhou: "I didn't make it clear, I thought you understood my hint."

Xie Chenyang: "Huh? You hinted?"

Ruan Zhou: "..."

His eyes were a little complicated: "I think it was implied with my familiar and intimate address that I showed when I first saw you, or in saying that our two families need not stand on ceremony."

They hadn't seen each other for many years, but he was so intimate when they met, he thought he understood.

Xie Chenyang: "..."

"I didn't make it clear, I should have discussed it with you in private," Ruan Zhou shook his head, "This is the end of the matter however, so I won't talk about it."

Xie Chenyang:【Really? Did you understand his hints?】

System: "Huh? Didn't I say it when you first saw him, he is your fiancé, hahaha."

Xie Chenyang:【I thought you were joking!】

System: "..." It was indeed.

Kui Jin said coldly: "In that case, I..."

Xie Chenyang held his hand: "No, I don't want you to leave."

Kui Jin: "..."

Ruan Zhou coughed lightly: "I’ll say to my disciples that our marriage contract was not official, and that we’ll stay in the name of receiving the call-to-arms. We'll be participating in the meeting."

Xie Chenyang was moved: "Thank you, you’re too kind!"

Ruan Zhou looked apologetic: "It's just that they may have a bad attitude towards you later on, so I ask master to please deal with it."

Xie Chenyang said indifferently: "I understand."

After all, in their eyes, he was a scumbag to their young master.

Ruan Zhou: "Then I won't bother you two."

Watching his back, Xie Chenyang said: "For your help, I will send you a thank you gift!"

Ruan Zhou waved his hand and walked away.

Xie Chenyang looked at Kui Jin's cold face and leaned on him: "You see, I really don't have that kind of relationship with him."

Kui Jin bowed his head: "What kind of gift are you going to give?"

Baihe Valley gathered the bodies of the dead and performed the funerals, both things would have consumed a lot of money and manpower. It was far from an ordinary favour.

"Don't worry, I’ll think of something."

Whether Mingdao Shanzhuang had any gifts that would satisfy Baihe Valley, Kui Jin didn't ask.

After that, the disciples of Baihe Valley became guests, and they all occupied a courtyard. Those who couldn't stay immediately withdrew to Baihe Valley.

With no staff at Mingdao Shanzhuang, the twenty-one remaining disciples took care of everything and were very busy.
