Her intuition was telling her that it was likely impossible to drag Huan Jiu Li into the Aged Consulate as Ji Mo Ya seemed to dislike her getting too close with other men; however, if it's her mother and younger brother, it should not pose a big problem.
Indeed, Ji Mo Ya said, "If you be obedient, this Young Master can consider."
Huan Qing Yan immediately revealed a wide smile, "I knew Young Master Ya is the best. I must also thank Young Master Ya for finding us at the crucial moment today, saving me and Brother Jiu Li from the hands of that mysterious person. Oh right, how did you know I was at the Ninth Prince Estate? Did you follow me?"
Ji Mo Ya revealed an expression of disdain and turned away his head, "Who followed you? This Young Master happened to notice the large quantities of demonic energy coming out of the Ninth Prince Estate, so I went over to look; who knew you would be there recklessly inviting death!"
Huan Qing Yan half believed, half suspected but she did not follow up on it. Whether she was being followed or not was not important; she was fine with it either way, since he already knew nearly all her secrets already.
He even knew about the ancient bowl's dimension, what else would she be afraid of him knowing!
"Take out that black metal piece for this Young Master to take a look at."
Huan Qing Yan pouted. Hey, didn't he say that he did not follow her; if he did not follow her, why would he know that she had that piece of black metal…
For the sake of Ji Mo Ya's face, Huan Qing Yan did not plan to touch on this topic any further.
She took out that black metal piece and offered it to him like a treasure, "You can only look, this is mine and it is very useful, as it can be used both as a shield and a flying sword! Could you help me check by seeing if this is a piece of shield-type magic equipment or a shred of a sword?"
Ji Mo Ya took it and checked it in detail, "It is not a shield type…"
"What type of magic equipment is this broken piece from?
Ji Mo Ya checked it another few times and mumbled, "I do not know for sure; it looks like the bottom of a wok, a magic equipment of a spirit chef?"
His tone was not confident.
Huan Qing Yan exclaimed, "Can it be that for this life, I must walk the path of a spirit chef? I could even randomly pick up an item related to a spirit chef just like this? But I can't, a spirit chef's cultivation speed is slow. I want to become as powerful as Young Master Ya quickly so that I can roam the continent instead of staying in this lousy Hanging Cloud Empire."
"Who told you that a spirit chef could not be powerful? Amongst the human ancestors, there existed a Chef Saint. His tale and history was something many juniors wished to follow; his strength was not only comparable to any of the other saints that ever existed, it was even stronger than several of them. The Chef Saint was said to be given the title of number one on the Spirit Treasure Continent. He was also the only Chef Saint…"
Huan Qing Yan's eyes turned, "Young Master Ya, are you perhaps the successor of this Chef Saint?"
"This Young Master had never cooked before, so what do you think?"
Eh, okay then.
Ji Mo Ya passed that black metal piece back to Huan Qing Yan, "Take care of it properly. If you can collect all the pieces, who knows, it might be of great use for you in the future."
When he saw how Huan Qing Yan blocked that sword attack using this metal piece, his intuition immediately told him that this shred was not as simple as it seemed.
However, he currently was unable to find out what it was, and since it was something that even he himself was unable to determine, this only proved that this item was not ordinary.
Huan Qing Yan happily kept the black metal piece, "Young Master Ya, do you have any more instructions? If not, Qing Yan will go fetch my mother and brother now…"
"Do not go out for the next few days, obediently stay within the Aged Consulate. I will get the Feather Guards to fetch your family."
Huan Qing Yan showered Young Master Ya with another round of praises before she left the main building and returned to her accommodations.
