“He needs your help with something?” Feng Jiu was surprised: “You didn’t agree?” He must not have agreed, that’s why his Master had stayed on for a few more days.
He looked at her and when he saw her look of surprise, he replied: “I was just about to go and turn him down.”
Upon hearing this, Feng Jiu said: “Although I’ve never met him before, he is still your Master after all. Since he has asked for your help, it must be an important matter. What has he asked you to do? Can I help?”
Xuanyuan Mo Ze paused, his deep gaze fell on her face and he met her quiet and beautiful eyes: “He wants me to go cross the seas with him. He said he needs me to use my Xuanyuan Sword. Because the return date was uncertain, I didn’t promise him.”
“Cross the seas?” Feng Jiu was startled: “And you don’t know when you will return?” He wouldn’t know how long he would be gone for?
“Yes.” He replied. His lips twitched slightly and he stroked her hair with one hand: “Don’t worry, I’m not going. I will tell him later.”
Feng Jiu fell silent. She thought for a while and said: “Why don’t you just go!” She looked at him with a serious expression and said: “Since your Master has come to ask for your help, it doesn’t seem right to refuse him. Besides, it might really be a very important matter.”
“If I cross the seas with him I won’t know when I will return. Won’t you worry?” He asked with a smile in his eyes.
Feng Jiu smiled gently and put a hand on his arm: “With your strength and wisdom, I should be worried about those people who want to cause you trouble instead. Besides, I will be here waiting for you! You won’t dare not come back!”
Upon hearing this, Xuanyuan Mo Ze chuckled lightly: “Let me take you to meet my Master! Even if I am to leave I will wait till after the grand opening of the Heavenly Pill Tower and I’ve made sure you’re on the right track before I leave.”
“Aren’t you in a hurry?”
“It doesn’t matter even if he’s in a hurry. If I don’t want to leave, is he going to tie me up and carry me away?” He took her hand and headed towards the small gate between the two Mansions and took her to see his Master Immortal Lord Stillwater.
In the Ling Mansion, when Immortal Lord Stillwater heard that Xuanyuan Mo Ze had returned, he walked out to the front yard at once. When he saw the man and woman sitting at the table talking, he couldn’t help but be slightly startled.
He had a guest?
His gaze turned and he sized up the girl in the red dress. At a glance, he couldn’t help but secretly praise: What an outstanding girl!
Few could compare to her disposition, appearance and cultivation level. If such a woman was with him, it could only be one person, and that was the Ghost Doctor.
He had heard of the Ghost Doctor Feng Jiu by reputation, it was rumoured that this woman not only had outstanding talents in cultivation but was also proficient in the art of alchemy and medicine, her first-rated medical skills had reached the point where she could bring back the dead.
Though those were just rumours, now that he had seen the two of them together, he did think that they were a very good match.
“Master.” Xuanyuan Mo Ze took Feng Jiu’s hand and stood up. He looked at Immortal Lord Stillwater who was approaching them.
“Feng Jiu greets Immortal Lord Stillwater.” She walked forward and bowed to the old man who walked towards her.
“No need to be so courteous.” Immortal Lord Stillwater said. He looked at Feng Jiu: “I have long heard of Ghost Doctor Feng Jiu, but I didn’t expect to be able to meet her today. You are more remarkable in person than in rumours, truly a phoenix amongst people.”
Feng Jiu was slightly surprised and looked at Immortal Lord Stillwater with a smile and said: “Immortal Lord Stillwater has overpraised me. You’ve arrived in the Mansion for a few days now and I haven’t come to pay you a visit till today, please accept my apologies.”
“Don’t worry about it.” He smiled and shook his head, then looked at Xuanyuan Mo Ze.
