Told Wang Ma Secretly
â€œItâ€™s not?â€ Yang Chen asked in annoyance. â€œThereâ€™s some sort of
weird energy emanating from it. Surely it couldnâ€™t just be a piece of
â€œOf course not.â€ Xiao Zhiqing explained, â€œThis is akin to an
identification card for the members of Hongmeng.â€
â€œThatâ€™s right,â€ Xiao Zhiqing said. â€œIf this â€کHuangâ€™ medal
really belonged to the cultivator. You can bet that he was from
It turned out that Hongmeng was located near the great ancient array,
near the centre of Kekexili. The creator of the illusion also created the
Godsâ€™ Island, which was made up of areas of different altitudes.
The great ancient array was located at the top. The Godsâ€™ Island were
separated into four main areas from the highest to the lowest
altitudeâ€”Heaven, Earth, Xuan, and Huang.
The Heaven area did not care about Hongmeng and was only focused on
watching over the array. They were only concerned with keeping up their
Whereas the Earth area consisted of the leaders of Hongmeng, but they
only had more than ten elders, most of whom were in the Tribulation
The Xuan area consisted of the main forces with more than a hundred
cultivators and most of them were in the final phase of the Soul Forming
Lastly, the lowest area, Huang, contained the most number of cultivators.
They were made up of those who had joined Hongmeng for less than two
centuries or those of cultivation lower than the Tribulation Passing
Those in the Huang area were normally termed as Hongmeng by the Yellow
Flame Iron Brigade since they were in charge of being in touch with
Technically, the cultivators in the Huang area werenâ€™t uniformed. The
stronger ones could be in the final phase of the Soul Forming stage
whereas the weaker ones could be in the initial phase of the Soul Forming
For example, Ling Xuzi entered Hongmeng for less than two centuries and
he had not reached the Tribulation Passing stage. He was considered an
upper-level cultivator in the Huang area and was therefore chosen as a
Hongmeng wasnâ€™t as strict and rigid as most people might think. As long
as their members did not disturb the peace and society, they were quite
relaxed about the policies.
Their sole purpose was to watch over the array, making sure that
cultivators in the Soul Forming stage wouldnâ€™t bother the society. They
werenâ€™t there to detain them.
But everyone was aware that the Huang area was quite chaotic.
Not all of them were loyal to Hongmeng. Some of them even defected to the
hidden clans in order to obtain medicines and scriptures to improve their
Hongmeng might be a big organization but it was hard for them to share
resources with thousands of cultivators.
â€œThis was used to prove his identity and disable the illusions
surrounding that area,â€ Xiao Zhiqing said.
Yang Chen beamed. â€œAh. This seems to be more useful to me than the
other two. I have to take good care of this.â€
Having said so, Yang Chen kept all the items back into the parallel
Lin Ruoxi had been quiet the whole time but she decided to speak up then.
â€œDonâ€™t act rashly. Iâ€™m worried that now that youâ€™ve killed the
cultivator, would Hongmeng treat you as their enemy now?â€
â€œI donâ€™t think so.â€ Xiao Zhiqing shook her head. â€œHongmeng
definitely wouldnâ€™t harm the mundane just to snatch something.
Targeting Yang Chen was not out of the ordinary. But involving you made
me suspect that this issue was more personal than business. He might have
come from one of the hidden clans. Even if Hongmeng knew that Yang Chen
killed the cultivator, they would understand that the cultivator was the
instigator of their fight. The elders adhere to the principles strongly
which makes them better people than those from the hidden clans.â€
Xiao Zhiqing words were coated with venom.
Her hatred ran deeper than the two would ever know.
Lin Ruoxi sighed in relief but frowned afterwards. â€œAre you saying that
the hidden clans are behind all this?â€
â€œThatâ€™s right.â€ Xiao Zhiqing snorted. â€œI wouldnâ€™t put their
greed above doing this. They must have wanted what Yang Chen had but
couldnâ€™t obtain it. Normally, a cultivator from the Huang area would
only have one mystical artifact but this person had three. It would only
make sense for him to be contracted by the hidden clan.â€
Yang Chen contemplated for a while about the link between the cultivator
and the mysterious man he had encountered in the Tang Sect. But he kept
it to himself.
â€œI have to thank you for helping me clear up my confusion. Iâ€™ll ask
you for help if I have any questions.â€ Yang Chen smiled.
Xiao Zhiqing brightened up and nodded her head immediately. â€œIâ€™m
doing my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Zhonghai University. You can find
me there whenever you want.â€
After saying that, she immediately retracted her words and apologized to
Lin Ruoxi. â€œMiss Lin, I didnâ€™t mean anything by it, I swear!â€
Lin Ruoxi shook her head with a soft smile.
She didnâ€™t really hate her now that she knew of her past. She even
invited Xiao Zhiqing for dinner but she respectfully declined.
Even though Yang Chen didnâ€™t say that he would protect her and help her
seek revenge, she knew that he wouldnâ€™t let her die.
She also knew that her request was a bit too much to ask for, so she was
glad to get something out of it.
Zhenxiu returned around evening after work but Hui Lin had left for work
and wouldnâ€™t be back for a couple of months.
Yang Chen thought it was better for both of them since it wouldâ€™ve been
awkward between them because of what he said to Hui Lin at the Yuanâ€™s
Wang Ma cooked a lot of dishes to soothe their nerves since Lin Ruoxi was
kidnapped in the morning.
Just when they were about to have their dinner, Yang Chenâ€™s phone
Yang Chen picked it up and was happy to see the caller ID.
He answered the call and asked, â€œRon, is it ready?â€
The person who called was an old man, Ron, who watched over Yang Chenâ€™s
house in Europe.
â€œYour Majesty Pluto, everything is ready. We may begin as soon as the
following month,â€ Ron replied joyfully.
Yang Chen hummed a response and hung up his phone.
Yang Chen turned around to face Lin Ruoxi which made her blush under his
stare. She then asked, â€œWhatâ€™s wrong?â€
Yang Chen took a deep breath. â€œWeâ€™ve been preparing for almost half a
year and itâ€™s finally finished. Weâ€™ll leave for Beijing tomorrow or
the day after tomorrow.â€
Lin Ruoxi was taken aback at first but she blushed and nodded when she
realized what he meant by getting ready.
â€œBeijing? Are you guys going there to meet Aunt Guo and Brother
Yangâ€™s grandfather?â€ Zhenxiu asked expectantly.
Yang Chen smirked. â€œDo you want to go too?â€
Zhenxiu looked at Wang Ma. â€œWang Ma, Iâ€™ll go if youâ€™re going.
Donâ€™t you miss Aunt Guo?â€
Wang Ma stroked her head and chided. â€œDonâ€™t bother them. Stay here
and watch over the house with me.â€
Zhenxiu stuck her tongue but didnâ€™t say anything else.
Wang Ma turned around and told Yang Chen, â€œSir, I heard from Miss that
you were planning a wedding?â€
Yang Chen looked at Lin Ruoxi in surprise and chuckled. â€œHehe, dear, I
didnâ€™t know you were looking forward to it so much that you even told
Wang Ma secretly?â€
â€œIâ€¦ I didnâ€™t?!â€ Lin Ruoxi wanted to crawl under the table.
Wang Ma laughed. â€œAlright, I was eavesdropping. Why are you so
embarrassed about the wedding? Not to mention youâ€™ve been married for
almost two years.â€
Yang Chen almost broke out in cold sweat. It took him this long to
prepare the wedding. It had to be perfect.
â€œSir.â€ Wang Ma giggled. â€œI might not be going to Beijing but can I
attend your wedding? I know you wouldnâ€™t hold it in China since
youâ€™ve been preparing for it for a long time. Itâ€™s been my wish to
watch Miss get married.â€
â€œWang Maâ€¦ why are you bringing this up?â€ Lin Ruoxi got a bit
Yang Chen smiled. â€œOf course you can. I have even chosen a position for
you in the wedding. Donâ€™t worry about it.â€
Wang Ma smiled in relief and wiped her tears. â€œMiss, I think you should
put your work aside for now. Nothing is more important than meeting your
in-laws and holding a wedding. Why donâ€™t you leave tomorrow?â€
