Cough, cough .
The archbishops couldn’t help but interrupt Ye Lang at this point, and with a stern voice he said, “Gentleman Ye, first I would like to thank you for your contributions to the Teachings . Without you, we would have been in deep trouble, perhaps even to the point of no return . However, you still cannot disrespect our Lady like this . ”
“Disrespect her? Did I?” asked Ye Lang, confused .
“ . . . ”
Kid, I’d have to disrespect the Lady once more if I had to point out exactly what you said .
“Let’s forget about that . Right now, we only want to know if you can save the Sacred Lady,” said another archbishop solemnly, looking directly at Ye Lang .
“That depends on her condition,” came Ye Lang’s reply, staring at the silhouette within the crystal .
“What condition?” they asked frantically .
Ye Lang narrowed his eyes at the archbishops, “What condition? I will only know if you tell me . ”
“What do we have to say? Don’t you know?” the archbishops asked in confusion . They didn’t understand what Ye Lang wanted them to say . They were the ones who asked first!
“How would I know if you don’t tell me? You all are weird, do you think I’m a god or something?” Ye Lang regarded the four archbishops, “hey, are you quadruplets?”
“ . . . ”
Yep . To Ye Lang, they looked like they were from the same mould, virtually indistinguishable from each other .
“If we don’t tell you, you don’t know?” asked the archbishops . If this was the case, they now doubted if Ye Lang could save her . Their expectations of him were too high .
However, they had forgotten who he was…
“What nonsense is this? How would I know what happened 21 years ago? Why was she sealed in this crystal? You have to tell me! How would I know if you didn’t?” complained Ye Lang, not forgetting to add, “old people can get quite muddled sometimes . ”
“ . . . ”
Everyone fell silent, while the four archbishops stood embarrassed . They realised they too forgot that even a genius doctor would need someone to explain the patient’s situation . Ye Lang couldn’t even see the Lady clearly, how would he know what happened? Then how would he be able to cure her?
“This is my fault, I wasn’t aware of this . Feng Xing, tell your men to leave us, close the door, and guard this room well . Do not let anyone else enter . Also, upstairs too…” one archbishop started giving instructions . They were about to discuss some serious matters and did not want so many people involved .
Time to leave .
“Yes, Archbishop Will,” replied Feng Xing . Archbishop Will was the one he had talked to before, he was a respectable man .
“Don’t bother with upstairs . ” Ye Lang raised an arm, pushing an alchemy formation upwards to the ceiling . It glowed the same way he did when he was using the purification formation .
What happened next was unbelievable .
One the glow dimmed into an alchemy formation again, dots appeared at the centre of the formation, floating midair . They moved in an orderly manner, then quickly stuck together, filling up the hole in the ceiling .
The ceiling was back to normal in the next moment without a scar as if the hole never happened .
What… What was this? This was incredible!
No one could express the shock they were experiencing, watching the solid ceiling once again .
How could a hole in the ceiling fill itself back up?
Ye Lanyu didn’t understand, neither did the princess or anyone of the teachings . Zhen Xiaoyan was more shocked because as an alchemist, she understood alchemy too .
“Ye Lang… H-how did you do it? You used the purification formation to make a hole, but then how did you fill it back up?” sputtered Zhen Xiaoyan .
Ye Lanyu and the princess understood that Ye Lang had never used this formation in front of Zhen Xiaoyan- she was usually his first test subject or audience .
“This is a reverse purification formation, it re-forms matter that had been purified away . You just have to alter the formation a little for this . This can only be used on non-living objects, and they cannot be purified a long time ago,” said Ye Lang, who folded his arms, waiting for the archbishops to speak .
However, the four of them could only repeat three words… . Reverse… Purification… Formation…
They didn’t know this could be done . This kid was really something .
“Are you all ready to tell me?” asked Ye Lang, bringing them back to reality . His tone was natural, it didn’t anger them at all .
“Feng Xing…” Archbishop Will gave Feng Xing a look, then didn’t say a word .
“Alright,” Feng Xing nodded . He knew what he had to do .
Very quickly, he brought all the Light Riders out of the room . . .
The Light Riders closed the door behind them . There were only the four archbishops, Ye Lang and the three girls left in the room .
“I know it is impossible to get you three ladies out of here, so I need you to promise us one thing: do not ever tell anyone about the Sacred Lady,” warned Archbishop Will .
“Hmmph!” Ye Lanyu turned her head away .
If anyone else witnessed this, they would’ve scolded Ye Lanyu for throwing away the opportunity of knowing the archbishop . The benefits this brought was something many people dreamt of .
The Ye family’s head, Ye Chengtian, would also scold her for being an idiot . Even Second Sister would say the same .
However, they wouldn’t scold Ye Lang because they knew he had always treated everyone the same, and they had given up on changing him .
Ye Lanyu wasn’t a person who didn’t know politics, she was only sulking because they attempted to chase her out!
The archbishops initially only wanted Ye Lang in the room- the fewer people, the better . To them, the three girls were irrelevant to this so they very naturally told the girls to leave the room!
