On their way back, Han Chenfei asked seriously, “Overlord, what are your plans for the future?”
Everyone wanted to know the answer, so they all started paying attention to what Xiang Shaoyun was about to say.
With a deep voice, Xiang Shaoyun replied, “I am returning to the Western Desert’s Celestial King Province. There is something I need to do there.”
“Are you really not coming back to the academy? With your current reputation, the academy will definitely let you return,” said Han Chenfei.
“My boss is not one to cling onto the past,” Xia Liuhui interjected. He then looked at Xiang Shaoyun and offered seriously, “Boss, why don’t you join the Sacred Deer Academy? We have a lot of beauties. With our charm, we will be extremely popular with the girls.”
“Academy life is no longer suited for me,” said Xiang Shaoyun as he shook his head. He looked at everyone and continued, “Don’t worry and focus on your cultivation. We will meet again in the future. The dominion is vast, and I want to travel around. I will be fine.”
“You’re right. After this, I am going to travel around as well. The academy has decent cultivation resources, but it lacks excitement,” said Ouyang Chuanqi.
“Deputy commander, you’re not thinking of leaving as well, right?” Xuan Yuantian asked anxiously.
Ouyang Chuanqi replied, “Of course not. I will occasionally leave to expand my horizons. There are still some nice things in the academy I need to get my hands on, so I definitely won’t be quitting the academy.”
“Ouyang is right. All of you should remain in the academy. I was left with no choice but to leave at the time. I don’t regret it, but I still find it hard to accept. In the future, some people will definitely pay for what they did,” said Xiang Shaoyun with a firm look in his eyes.
Even though he had killed Feng Xiaosha and Gui Mochou, he did not consider the issue over. The true culprits would not stop trying to harm him, and if he had a chance to take his revenge on them, he would not let it go.
Some grudges could not be erased with mere words. They had expelled him with the intention of severing his future. If it wasn’t for his master’s care, he would have been killed.
The group went to the nearest coastal city and traveled from the city to the Dragon Phoenix Academy. Xiang Shaoyun was able to make a full recovery while traveling.
It was unknown if Xia Liuhui was under a special mission issued by the Sacred Deer Academy elder, but he had been singing the Sacred Deer Academy praises in front of Xiang Shaoyun all the time. He would talk about all the beauties in the academy, and he kept extending invitations to visit the academy.
Xiang Shaoyun knew Xia Liuhui well, and he also knew that Xia Liuhui had always been someone who was all talk, so he didn’t pay much attention to him. Nevertheless, he was still going to return to the Xia Hamlet with Xia Liuhui, as the time for them to reconvene had arrived. It had been seven years since their last meeting there.
After half a month of travel, the group reached Dragon Phoenix City.
There, he told Ouyang Chuanqi, Han Chenfei, Tang Longfei and Xuan Yuantian to return to the academy. They had no excuse to continue sticking around, so they had no choice but to leave.
During the moment of parting, Han Chenfei couldn’t hold back and gave Xiang Shaoyun a hug and a kiss before running off, causing Xiang Shaoyun to feel rather awkward.
“You’re truly my boss. When are you going to teach me a few tricks, boss? I feel like I’m going to grow old alone,” said Xia Liuhui with admiration and envy.
“Brother, if you were half as handsome as the overlord, you won’t grow old alone,” said Tang Longfei as he patted Xia Liuhui’s shoulder.
That made Xia Liuhui feel like crying. He really wanted to loudly yell the following words: “I’m quite handsome too.”
“If you have the chance to return to the Bloodsin City, please send my regards to my father. Tell him I won’t bring shame to him,” said Tang Longfei before turning and leaving as well.
And with that, only Xia Liuhui was left beside Xiang Shaoyun. Of course, the wolf guard, Money, Aikai, turtle, and toad were not counted.
The group found a random restaurant and entered. There, they started drinking and talking about their experiences over the past few years.
It turned out that Xia Liuhui had really entered the Sacred Deer Academy through the back door. Fortunately, he had worked hard to prove himself. Otherwise, he would bring great shame to Duo Ji. Currently, Xia Liuhui had no idea where Duo Ji was at. After he had entered the Sacred Deer Academy, Duo Ji had vanished.
“My master is too cruel. He threw me to the academy and never appeared again. Old pitiful me was left alone to be ravaged by the girls of the academy,” complained Xia Liuhui.
“Sure, sure. I think you probably love it there. In fact, you probably wish to stay there your entire life,” said Xiang Shaoyun with a tone of reproach.
“Boss, that is absolutely not true. I am not that kind of man,” Xia Liuhui protested.
“Yeah, yeah. Let’s change the topic. This time, I’m going to return to the Ziling Sect. There will be an intense battle, and things will get dangerous. You need to prepare yourself,” said Xiang Shaoyun seriously.
“Don’t worry, boss. I have not wasted the past few years of my life,” said Xia Liuhui as he heavily nodded his head. He sighed and continued, “I wonder how Yingying is doing by Miss Ye’s side.”
Xia Yingying was his only sister, and he missed her greatly. Xiang Shaoyun also missed Ye Chaomu greatly, wondering just how strong she was now.
One ought to know that Ye Chaomu was even more terrifyingly talented than him. Even with his numerous fortuitous encounters and rapid growth, he was confident his sister would not fall behind him. In fact, he was worried that perhaps he hadn’t even caught up with his sister.
After all, his sister’s master was an incredibly remarkable big shot. After chatting for a bit, Xiang Shaoyun told Xia Liuhui to either rest in the tavern or take a stroll around the city. He had to go pick up the three birds. Xia Liuhui was not someone who could stand sitting around silently, so he naturally decided to tour the city.
But as soon as he stepped out, Xia Liuhui saw an exceptional beauty walking over and was instantly bedazzled. She seemed to be walking toward him, causing his heartbeat to speed up and his face to flush red.
Has she taken a liking to my handsome and heroic self? wondered Xia Liuhui inwardly.
The beauty stopped before him. Looking at him with her enchanting eyes, she asked, “What is your name?”
“X-Xia that means summer, l-liu that means flow, and h-hui that means swing. I-I wonder wh-what’s your name, miss?” Xia Liuhui replied stutteringly.
He felt like spring had arrived, as though he was living in the most beautiful dream ever. He was filled with joy as a beauty had finally taken a liking to him. The heavens had finally decided to be fair.
“Xia Liuhui? Good name,” said the beauty as she flashed him a sweet smile. “I am Tuoba Wan’er. You may address me as your sister-in-law. I’m your boss’s—Xiang Shaoyun’s— fiancee.”
