Looking at her master’s obvious hesitation, Lu Yuliu felt a bit uneasy.
She realized that she had been too hasty and should have casually chatted with her master for a while before bringing up this matter when the timing was right.
It was too abrupt to ask such a question right from the beginning.
But she really wanted to know the answer to this question.
If her master was still completely devoted to the path of the sword like before, then naturally she wouldn’t consider finding a Dao companion… But now, with her master’s sword heart being reshaped, it was clear that she was no longer the same indifferent Holy Saint as before.
And thinking about the content of the story described by the Holy Saint of the Demon Sect…
Miss Sword Fairy was worried.
She was worried that some annoying guy would suddenly appear above her head and complicate things.
Seeing her master’s thoughtful expression after a brief moment of confusion, her worry grew even stronger.
At this moment, Ling Shuangxue was indeed lost in thought.
What did her disciple mean by suddenly asking this question?
Since this peerlessly talented disciple helped her reshape her Dao heart, she had started to instinctively ponder the meaning behind her disciple’s words.
But then again, a Dao companion…
If it were her former self, she probably wouldn’t have even considered this question and would have instantly come to a conclusion.
But now, recalling the descriptions of romantic relationships between men and women that her disciple had depicted in their correspondence, Ling Shuangxue suddenly felt that finding a Dao companion might not be a bad idea after all.
After all, she was already in the middle stage of Nascent Soul, and her disciple was approaching the Golden Core stage. Sooner or later, they would have to venture out into the world…
In the long years to come, it wouldn’t hurt to have a talented man by her side.
(Thinking about it this way, the story told by Yuliu does focus mainly on the romantic relationship of that sword immortal… Perhaps Yuliu is trying to tell me that if I were to follow the path of sword cultivation of that sword immortal, having a renowned Dao companion might make things easier?)
Unfortunately, she had not yet encountered a man who made her heart flutter.
Having spent many years in seclusion on Frost Snow Peak, she had barely even met her fellow disciples in the Sword Pavilion, and the conversations they had were fewer than the exchanges she had with her disciple in the past two days through their correspondence.
With these thoughts in mind, she shook her head lightly.
“I haven’t thought about this before… but perhaps I will consider it in the future.”
When Lu Yuliu saw her master shake her head, she was about to breathe a sigh of relief, but then she heard what her master said next, and even the tea cup in her hand trembled.
Her words clearly indicated that her master was no longer uninterested in men like she used to be.
Indeed, her master had changed significantly since reshaping her sword heart.
Now that her master said this, it was only because her sword heart had just been reshaped and she hadn’t encountered a man who interested her yet.
But if someone like that Holy Saint of the Demon Sect, who replaced her in exchanging letters with her master, were to be exposed…
Miss Sword Fairy couldn’t guarantee that her master wouldn’t be interested in the Holy Saint who helped reshape her sword heart.
After all, she herself was a precedent for being inexplicably interested in that Holy Saint.
Before going to the Demon Sect, she had never imagined that she would have such a deep connection with that Holy Saint of the Demon Sect.
But look at it now, she had even gotten used to being called “Little Yuli” by that Holy Saint…
What was even scarier was that she had gotten used to it too!
Coupled with that Holy Saint’s peerless talent and good looks, as long as he didn’t speak in a teasing manner and said things that sounded pleasing to the ear, he could occasionally bring forth some interesting things…
Lu Yuliu was very worried that her master, who had never had much contact with men, wouldn’t be able to resist his charm.
Didn’t she see how her master had already changed because of that Holy Saint through their correspondence?
The young girl felt that her worries were not unfounded, but she hadn’t considered that she, just like her master, was once a Sword Pavilion fairy who had no interest in men until she met the Holy Saint of the Demon Sect.
Her thoughts were constantly churning in her mind, but one idea became increasingly stronger in her consciousness.
At this moment, Ling Shuangxue, seeing that her disciple didn’t respond after hearing her answer, proactively asked, “Why did you suddenly bring up this matter today?”
She actually wanted to tease her disciple a bit and ask, “Could it be that you have someone you care about now?” but she restrained herself from making too drastic changes right on the first day of their conversation since their correspondence began.
After all, this was the first time in these few days that they sat down face-to-face and talked, so there was no need to rush.
Lu Yuliu heard her master’s question and quickly collected her thoughts, putting on a smile on her face that didn’t show any problems.
“It’s just been a long time since I had such a conversation with Master, so I felt a little nervous and the thought came up… Please don’t mind, Master.”
The conversation between master and disciple continued for a long time.
To disguise the fact that she was most concerned about the question she had just brought up, Lu Yuliu started chatting with her master about various other trivial matters.
But the more they talked, the more anxious she felt in her heart.
She clearly sensed how deeply her master had been influenced by the recent reshaping of her sword heart.
Feeling her master’s gentle gaze, Lu Yuliu’s uneasiness grew even stronger.
In order to avoid giving herself away, she didn’t dare to mention anything about their recent correspondence.
(As expected… If things continue like this, my master will eventually discover the issue with the letters…)
The future where the Holy Saint of the Demon Sect becomes an elder in her own sect seemed to be beckoning to her.
Even if it didn’t turn out as she imagined, Lu Yuliu couldn’t imagine her master’s reaction when she discovered the truth.
It would probably be a social death just like herself on that day on the ship.
She thought her master, who was supposed to maintain her cold and aloof demeanor towards others, ended up exchanging so many letters with that Holy Saint…
Could she be expelled from the sect after the truth comes out?
As another topic came to an end, Lu Yuliu spoke seriously to her master:
“Master, I’m planning to visit the Royal City.”
She couldn’t stay in this Sword Pavilion anymore!
On the other side, Ling Shuangxue had just picked up the tea cup, which was filled to the brim, and her hand froze for a moment.
She almost spilled the precious tea.
“…Why?” Ling Shuangxue asked after a moment of silence, forcing herself to maintain her calm and composed expression, even though her rare loss of composure had already revealed her inner turmoil.
“This disciple won’t hide anything from you, this time I was able to obtain the Blood Spirit Jade for you, Master, through a trade with the Demon Sect’s Holy Maiden, Bai Xiaoyao… Now that you have awakened and reached the mid-stage of Nascent Soul, it is time for me to fulfill my promise to the Demon Sect’s Holy Maiden.”
Although the promise still had more than two months before it was supposed to start, everything she said was mostly true, and Miss Sword Fairy had no guilty conscience.
As for a certain Holy Saint of the Demon Sect? What did that have to do with her trade with Bai Xiaoyao?
After a little thought, she added, “Coincidentally, it will be about a month until the competition for the Human Immortal Ranking begins. It would be a good opportunity for me to familiarize myself with the Royal City.”
Seeing that her disciple had clearly made a decision and had such valid reason, Ling Shuangxue felt a sense of regret.
She had originally planned to deepen her relationship with her disciple on Frost Snow Peak.
But she wasn’t too disappointed.
Ling Shuangxue gently put down the teacup in her hand.
“In that case, I will accompany you on this journey.”
Well, since there was an opportunity, it would be a way to deepen the relationship between master and disciple to go to the Royal City together.
On the other side, Miss Sword Fairy almost couldn’t hold back her expression on her face.
