Chapter 396: Lang Ya, A Homosexual’s Obsession
By the time Yun Jiuge and Jin Chuan came to the hall, the three elders had already arrived with their disciples.
Elder Mo Hua sneered when she saw Yun Jiuge arriving with Zi Shang. She still remembered the past with much bitterness.
Elder Bai Gu, on the other hand, was expressionless.
He found a good Spiritual Bone some time ago, so he was not to concern with Yun Jiuge's Xuan Yin White Bone Monkey.
Qiu Sen stood in the middle. For some reason, he looked lost in his thoughts and did not pay any attention to the arrivals.
Yun Jiuge secretly looked at his small and short figure, thinking how pitiful it was for a grown man to only have a body of a five-year-old and unable to do what he wanted.
Fortunately, Qiu Sen did not see Yun Jiuge looking at him with pity in her eyes. Otherwise he would most certainly be enraged.
"Junior Yun Jiu, you came!" Si Youyue greeted Yun Jiuge with a smile as she stood behind Qiu Sen.
Yun Jiuge smiled and nodded without saying a word.
Jin Yuanwei glanced at Yun Jiuge but chose to ignore her.
Lang Ya did not even give her a sideways glance.
Next to him was a round-faced Senior Sister who had been playing with a gold abacus. Yun Jiuge could not tell what she was busy counting but she seemed like a money-faced person. This person was Yu Ziyan.
"Junior, we have not met for a long time, congratulations on the advancement of your level," Bai Lan greeted Yun Jiuge. She winked at Yun Jiuge as if they were buddies.
Standing beside her was a tall and good-looking young man. It was Mo Jingyuan of Mo Hua Peak.
He was wearing bright red clothes, embroidered with a gold pattern. He was busy playing with his hair.
He was looking around and took only a cursory glance at Yun Jiuge He seemed disinterested in her and instead focused his attention on Zi Shang.
Zi Shang was however shrouded in Yin Qi, so Mo Jingyuan could not get a good look at him.
He turned his gaze away, and then happily feasted his eyes off Lang Ya's tall and strong body. He looked like he was mentally stripping off Lang Ya's clothes and running his hands all over his lean body.
It suddenly dawned on Yun Jiuge that Lang Ya was aware that Mo Jingyuan was a homosexual due to his personal experience.
"Junior Yun Jiu, come this way," Jin Chuan brought Yun Jiuge to the location of Sect Leader's Peak.
Although he did not get along with Yun Jiuge very well, they were both disciples of Sect Leader's Peak and thus must stand together at a time like today's.
"Senior, will the Sect Leader be coming today?" Yun Jiuge asked in a low voice.
"Of course, he will," he replied. As soon as Jin Chuan stopped talking, a man came walking out from the back of the hall.
The last time Yun Jiuge saw the Sect Leader, he was being pursued by Elder Mo Hua and the others. She managed to see only the Sect Leader's back at that time. Today would be the first time she could see the Sect Leader's face.
Yun Jiuge did not expect the Sect Leader's face to be covered with a layer of black fog. His appearance could not be seen clearly.
Yun Jiuge felt sad. She heard from Little Fatty that the Sect Leader used to be very natural and poised. He would show his true face to others. But of late, his behavior had changed and he became quite mysterious.
"Elder Qiu Sen will lead the team to the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm this time. You will each take your Amulet to enter the Secret Realm to kill more Fiendish Corpses," he briefly addressed everyone. Then he cast out a few rays of gray light which flew into the hands of each person. The Sect Leader was a man of few words.
Yun Jiuge caught the gray light and found that it was a large round Amulet. A vicious-looking black colored Fiendish Corpse was engraved on it. It was the Amulet to enter the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm.
"Let's set off," Qiu Sen ordered. He was the first to head out of the hall.
The Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm was 3000 miles away from the Yin Corpse Sect. If they were to travel on the ordinary Flying Devices, it would take at least two days of flying.
All five major sects were making the journey together. So as not lose face, the Sect Leader generously let them travel on the sect's Flying Device.
It was a ferocious-looking black Airship with several blast holes in the airship's hull. The Airship was not only fast, but it was also equipped with amazing attack capabilities.
Yun Jiuge boarded the Airship and found a quiet corner in the stern to sit down. She decided to close her eyes and rest.
The others also found their places to rest. No one spoke.
Only the Bai Lan was looking around. She walked towards Yun Jiuge with a flirty smile. She looked like she wanted to get chummy with Yun Jiuge.
But Yun Jiuge did not want to deal with her, so she secretly said to Zi Shang through Mental Transference, "Don't let her bother me."
"Sure," Zi Shang responded.
Bai Lan went near to Yun Jiuge and was about to speak when suddenly, everything went blurry for her. She was thrown to the bow by Zi Shang. She almost smacked into Jin Yuanwei.
"Senior Bai, can't you stay quiet? My master is not in a good mood. You will have to bear the consequences if you upset him," Jin Yuanwei said, his tone unfriendly. He had always disliked Bai Lan's hypocritical behavior.
"Sorry, I'm sorry," Bai Lan apologized repeatedly.
Elder Qiu Sen was the one leading the teams this time around. There was nothing to be gained from turning against Jin Yuanwei. So even though Bai Lan was frustrated, she couldn't say anything more.
"All right, all right, just find yourself somewhere to sit," said Jin Yuanwei as he waved her away.
Bai Lan went away with an apologetic smile. She stared hard at Yun Jiuge as she settled down.
All this while, Yun Jiuge did not open her eyes and pretended not to know what was going on.
Bai Lan's resentment grew. She could not help but muttered to herself, "Yun Jiuge, you may get away this time but just you wait. I'll deal with you once we enter the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm."
At the thought of the treasure that her Master had bestowed on her, Bai Lan felt happier. She had wanted to draw Yun Jiuge to her side with a few friendly words so that Yun Jiuge will let her guard down. Now there was no further need to do so.
The black Airship flew all day and all night before arriving at the Fiendish Corpse Valley early the next morning.
There was not a soul in sight at the Fiendish Corpse Valley. The people of the Yin Corpse Sect arrived first.
"Our Master has allowed everyone to go down and freely move around. When the other disciples from the four sects arrived, we will then enter the Fiendish Corpse Valley together," announced Jin Yuanwei. After he had conveyed the instruction from his Master, he went back to wait upon his master.
Si Youyue who wanted to ingratiate herself to Qiu Sen constantly stood at his side.
Yun Jiuge stepped on the Wicked Blade and descended from the Airship to the empty Fiendish Corpse Valley below. As usual, she looked for a quiet spot to sit down.
This time, Bai Lan did not make any attempt to approach her again.
Jin Chuan's face looked serious and he was rather stand-offish.
Yu Ziyan held a gold abacus and played with it in a corner, making popping sounds. Her face was flushed with excitement.
Lang Ya stood not far from Yun Jiuge on a boulder. Mo Jingyuan was hanging around him, talking and laughing. His slanted eyes danced as he kept throwing flirtatious glances at Lang Ya.
Lang Ya looked like he was finding it hard to tolerate him. But Mo Jingyuan's Cultivation was higher than his, so he had to endure.
After 15 minutes, a Spiritual Light flashed across the sky and a band of light composing of pink peach blossom petals appeared.
It was headed by a female Cultivator with Early Golden Core Cultivation, wearing a peach blossom palace attire. She was beautiful and a peach blossom symbol was painted on her forehead. She was Hehuan Sect's Elder, Peach Blossom Fairy.
Behind her stood six women and two men. The women were exceptionally beautiful and alluring.
The men were tall and handsome, but with a flamboyant air in their appearances.
Although Mo Jingyuan swept his gaze over the male disciples of Hehuan Sect, he was not interested in them. He continued to pester Lang Ya.
"Senior Qiu, long time no see," Peach Blossom Fairy greeted Qiu Sen after she put away the Flying Device. She walked gracefully towards Qiu Sen.
Her limpid eyes looked at Qiu Sen with deep affection. It was as if something was going on between the two of them.
