Chapter 256.1: He Looks So Much Like My Son
After a few moments, someone answered from inside and the door was slowly opened.
The person who opened the door was a tall and good looking young man. When he saw the man with such an enchanting countenance standing outside, he was taken back a moment by surprise.
His eyes were wide with shock as he turned his head to cast a careful glance inside before he asked softly: “Young Lord, why have you suddenly returned?”
Bai Zhi Yan arched up an eyebrow and gave the man a measuring glance. “What? I need to report back in advance before coming back to my own home? Why are you acting so furtively for?”
Sensing the displeasure in Bai Zhi Yan’s tone, the man quickly shook his head and said: “That is not what I mean. Young Lord, don’t get angry yet and let me explain. We have a couple of guests who came here to the sect some time ago and it seems like they are on rather good terms with the Sect Leader, so the Sect Leader has been in a rather good mood recently. I am just afraid that if the Young Lord were to get into an argument with the Sect Leader, it would not be nice to have the guests witness that.”
The pair had been father and son for such a long time and almost everyone in the Divine Healers Sect knew how the two of them got along with each other. That was the reason why that man was being so cautious.
Hearing that, Bai Zhi Yan’s curiosity was piqued.
To think that such an inflexible and stern person like his Father would actually come to have close friends. How come he did not know anything about that?
To the extent that he was unwilling to even see his own son! ?
With that thought in mind, Bai Zhi Yan curved his lips up in a smile. “You do not have to worry about that at all. I did not come back here to pick a fight with him. I was just young and immature in the past, and I am no longer as rash as I was before.”
He really wanted to see who those guests were.
Bai Zhi Yan turned his head around to look at the youth behind him. “Kid, you have better keep close to me.”
Qing Bei nodded, indicating that he would.
It was only at that moment that the man from the Divine Healers Sect came to notice that there was a youth standing behind Bai Zhi Yan. The youth was rather thin and Bai Zhi Yan blocked the youth out completely earlier, so he had not seen the boy.
Although the youth was together with their Young Lord, but he still had not forgotten that the Divine Healers Sect was not a place that allowed outsiders into their grounds easily, and he went on to ask: “This young master here is…..”
“It’s alright. This young lad is like a younger brother to me, and can be considered to be one of us.”
Bai Zhi Yan waved his hand dismissively as he spoke, and he immediately led Qing Bei to go inside together with him.
At that same moment, Bai Qiu was entertaining his guests, Qing Lan Fei and Mo Jing Yu, in a quaint and elegant pavilion that offered a serene and peaceful view.
It was only after that day when Qing Lan Fei came to the Divine Healers Sect that Bai Qiu came to be aware that the Elixir Cultivator who was widely known and highly revered in Cloud Heaven was now actually married to this man in front of him.
