Hearing this, Mu Chen stared at Gu Yunjue, how could this bastard dare to call his courtesy name…Wait! Wedding ceremony?
"You…stop being mischievous!" Mu Chen called to his mind and pushed Gu Yunjue away without knowing what to do. But unexpectedly, Gu Yunjue leaned over, directly wrapped his arms around Mu Chen's waist, held Mu Chen tight, and said with a voice full of love, "Master, what are you worrying about? Are you afraid that someone would gossip?"
Mu Chen's body got stiff for a while, but then he felt relaxed. His first reaction was to worry about the reputation, not his own reputation but the reputation of Lofty Cloudy Sect which was one of the four eminent sects…But on second thought, he realized that he had made Yue Mingze expel him for this reason, and there were many people who knew that he and Gu Yunjue had been a couple, so, was there anything should be worried about?
Gu Yunjue continued to say softly, "No one know you here. You are no longer the Great Elder. And I have been expelled from Lofty Cloudy Sect. By rights, you are no longer my master and I am no longer your apprentice. But our contract of being a couple is still valid. We are a couple, so, why we dare not to announce it to the world?"
Mu Chen meditated for a while, then patted Gu Yunjue on his hands, and motioned Gu Yunjue to loosen his hands.
Gu Yunjue frowned, seized Mu Chen and called, "Qingxing?"
Mu Chen stared at Gu Yunjue with disapproval, "Call me master! If you continue to call me casually, I'll punish you to kneel down!"
Gu Yunjue leaned on Mu Chen sadly, held Mu Chen by his waist and rubbed Mu Chen's face, "Master."
Mu Chen then looked relieved. He touched the back side of the head of his apprentice, with the mood in his eyes changing from hesitation, entanglement and struggling to calmness; he said, "Keep all things simple."
"Master, does it mean that you accept my proposal?" Gu Yunjue held Mu Chen's face, his fingers trembling slightly, his black eyes seeming to contain sparkling stars all shining with brilliant glory.
Unfamiliar look came over Mu Chen's face, this bastard, he had already said that keep all things simple, why would Gu Yunjue ask the question again? "Are you sure that you want to ask me again?" Mu Chen stared at Gu Yunjue, with the colour of his eyes deepening, he thought that if the bastard continued to ask, he would say no.
Gu Yunjue wouldn't want to ask again. He held Mu Chen up high and spun in circles.
Mu Chen lowered his head angrily, but the smile on Gu Yunjue's face dazzled him. After a thought, he felt relieved. This bastard had offended him for many times. Just let him be happy for a moment, but it wouldn't happen again. Then he gave up stopping Gu Yunjue. Seeing that Gu Yunjue smiled as if having the whole world, Mu Chen also raised the corners of his mouth.
Mu Chen had never seen Gu Yunjue smile so contentedly. After all, Gu Yunjue didn't want much.
"Well," Mu Chen poked Gu Yunjue's forehead, "As you just came back, you must have a lot of things to handle, go deal with them."
Gu Yunjue held Mu Chen in his arms and walked out, with the smile still on his face, he said in a spooky tone, "Master, you come with me. If you dare to run away, I will lock you up."
Mu Chen raised his hand and slapped his apprentice. How should Gu Yunjue dare to frighten him, the bastard!
*The Floating Souls Valley.
A young man, holding a red gold-inlaid note, looked serious, came to an isolated place covered with a magic formation and said loudly, "My lord, Ronggu Peak sends you an invitation."
With the magic formation shaking lightly, a young man in fine purple clothes came out. He was Gu Yunjin.
"Ronggu Peak has never been in contact with the outside world. How could it send me an invitation this time?" He took it. After wiping off the devil gas covering on it, a bright-red invitation emerged in front of him.
Gu Yunjin's face changed after he had read what was written on it.
The power in Gu Yunjin's palm was strengthened gradually, then the note in his hands was crushed up. His eyes became scarlet immediately. New and old hatred came into his mind all together, which even made Gu Yunjin have difficulties in suppressing his devil spirits.
"My lord, it is…"
Gu Yunjin sneered, "Who else could it be? I know that his is sophisticated, but I didn't expect that the whole Devil Realm was trapped by Gu Yunjue."
Hearing this, his subordinate's face clouded over, "Is Gu Yunjue the host of Ronggu Peak?"
A ray of murderous look flickered in Gu Yunjin's body immediately.
There were not barriers between the Demon Realm and the Devil Realm, but only a huge mountain. And Ronggu Peak was located at the throat of the mountain and next the Demon Realm.
The Devil Realm had been divided into three parts. And the devil master's body had reached its limit. He would die before the Ascension Stage came. With the help of medicine to sustain his body, and with the protection and support of Star-Cloud Exalt, he could maintain his status as the devil master.
However, later, Star-Cloud Exalt was killed by Mu Chen and Gu Yunjue, and the devil master was set up by Gu Yunjue and hurt by Mu Qing. Gu Yunjin, which was used as a container of Devil Lord's soul, finally found an opportunity to lead his subordinates to escape from the Devil Palace and split the Devil Realm into two parts. He occupied two thirds of the Devil Realm, wanted to rely on Ronggu Peak and swallow the force of devil master.
However, out of expectation, Gu Yunjue had already prepared enough. He did not only occupy Ronggu Peak in advance, but also developed his force rapidly while Gu Yunjin battled with Devil Lord. When the force of Gu Yunjin and that of Devil Lord were evenly matched, Gu Yunjin looked back and found that there was such a strong force behind him, which could distantly correspond to the status of Devil Lord. As long as Gu Yunjin took some action, either one of the two parts could finish him off in the back.
Gu Yunjin originally planned to kill Gu Yunjue through another's hand, however he failed and was used by Gu Yunjue, and even let his henchman, who had been protecting him since he was a child, get killed.
There was another thing that Gu Yunjin hadn't imagined, either—the host of Ronggu Peak, who had never appeared no matter how Gu Yunjin provoked him deliberately, was Gu Yunjue.
Ronggu Peak had been protected by magic formations, and its host had been avoided appearing. Gu Yunjin had sent people to investigate for many times, but he didn't get any useful information.
For the moment, Gu Yunjue returned to the Devil Realm and became high-profile instantly. He planned to hold the wedding ceremony once he came back. And the invitation even was sent to Gu Yinjin, in Gu Yunjin's view, which could be seen as a provocation that directly slapped his face.
"Prepare a generous gift. As I am the older brother, how could I miss my younger brother's wedding ceremony?" Gu Yunjin said angrily, gnashing his teeth.
It had been some time since Mu Chen came to the Devil Realm, and he had fully adapted to the environment here. Because the Yanyang Palace was their residence, the other palaces were divided by their subordinates. In the Lofty Cloudy Sect, the Qinyang Palace was originally a place where Duanmu Feng planted trees and made wine in order to earn money for Lofty Cloudy Sect. But at the moment, here was used to plant fruit trees by the people in Ronggu Peak, who also raised a lot of delicious magic beasts in this orchard and many crucian with dragon scales in the spring on the back of the mountain. So, the whole Ronggu Peak achieved self-sufficiency. The man who managed all of these things was Mu Chen' big cousin—Chen Mo, who didn't want to go back once he arrived here.
Mu Chen sat at the little wooden table under trees, ate the spirit fruits sliced into small pieces, and waited for Chen Mo who was squatting on the ground and grilling fish for him.
"Your skill of grilling fish is still so bad. I don't know if I would have diarrhea after I have eaten this." Mu Chen said dissatisfiedly while he was eating the grilled fish.
Chen Mo didn't care what Mu Chen said. He blew the burnt fish skin, sprinkled a pinch of salt on it and laughed happily, "You don't understand, this is called crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, which is so delicious."
Mu Chen wiped the juice on the corners of his mouth, looking disgusted, "It has already been burnt. The fish died with grievance."
"Tut-tut, you don't know anything about the delicious." Chen Mo tore a piece of fish skin from the stomach of the fish and handed it to Mu Chen, "Taste it. It's delicious."
Mu Chen rejected him disrespectfully and relentlessly. Seeing Chen Mo put that piece of fish skin in his mouth and enjoy himself, Mu Chen couldn't help asking: "You really don't plan to go back?"
Chen Mo smiled, as if he had removed all the shackles, and said without any burden, "There are many people who want the seat at home. They all wish that I will never go back. Besides, my temperament is not suitable for taking the place of the head of the family. An isolated life fits me well. Even if I returned there after I died, they would still want to drive me out of the sect."
Mu Chen raised the corners of his mouth into a smile, "As long as you feel happy."
"Will you really betray and leave the Lofty Cloudy Sect for him? I heard that the little leader in the Immortal Realm had already expelled you from the sect. Is it really that you didn't force him to do that?"
Mu Chen replied indifferently: "He wouldn't listen to me if I didn't compel him. Once the children grow up, they would have their own ideas. The next time I meet him, I will beat him up to give him a lesson."
Chen Mo handed the fish to Mu Chen, but Mu Chen replied him with a disdainful look. Chen Mo curled his lips helplessly, "Please be nice to me."
Mu Chen had to take it over, then said unhappily, "It's not as good as those Gu Yunjue grilled before."
"Eat it, or shut up!" Chen Mo said sourly, "Once the children have grown up, they really become disobedient. If they felt hungry before, they would eat anything."
"Humph!" A groan escaped from Mu Chen's lips, as he thought that he had already said it was "before" and it was obviously that he didn't grill it well, why he wouldn't let others give opinions?
The Devil Palace.
A white figure held the invitation, which was placed quietly in front of Devil Lord. A weak voice arose, "Have you heard about the Reincarnation Pearl?"
