Before coming to Azure Wood Island, Yang Kai and Zhu Qing had just talked about this topic, and Zhu Qing had specifically instructed him not to leave her sight, lest he give the Dragon Clan sisters a chance to take advantage of him.
Yang Kai also patted his chest and promised that he would not be tempted by beauty.
Who would have thought that the Great Elder would suddenly bring this up? If it weren’t for the previous conversation, Yang Kai might not have been able to connect the dots, but with the conversation he had with Zhu Qing, the meaning behind the Great Elder’s words… was quite intriguing.
Yang Kai was dumbfounded, “Great Elder, don’t tell me…”
Zhu Yan chuckled as he sized up Yang Kai from head to toe with his seemingly turbid eyes, as if he was looking at a beautiful piece of jade, causing Yang Kai’s goosebumps to rise as he gently nodded, “It’s good for you, little brat.”
Yang Kai was suddenly speechless. At this moment, he really wanted to pry open this old man’s head and see what he was thinking. Fu Ling’s flirtatious behavior in front of him was one thing, but why did the Dragon Race’s Great Elder also have such thoughts?
Zhu Yan turned to look at Zhu Qing and said solemnly, “Qing’er, I’m afraid this matter will make you suffer a bit, but for the sake of my Dragon Clan’s grand plan, I have no choice but to do so. I believe you understand.”
Zhu Qing lowered her brow, “Qing’er understands, but Great Elder doesn’t need to tell me this, everything will depend on his own opinion.”
Zhu Yan snorted coldly, “Good boy, as long as you don’t have any objections, what can he say? Man… hmph!”
Yang Kai immediately said, “I have an opinion.”
Zhu Yan looked at him with interest, “You have a problem with that? What problem can you have?”
Yang Kai wiped his face, “My opinion is too big!”
Zhu Yan smiled, “If you have any objections, just say it.”
Yang Kai said solemnly, “It’s true that I’m a man, but it’s not that I don’t have a bottom line. Not to mention that I don’t know any of the Dragon Race’s women, even if I do, this kind of thing requires mutual consent. When the conditions are right, success will follow. I and Qing’er went through thick and thin together to reach this point, so how could I be like this with the other Dragon Women? What does Senior think I am? A pig?”
“So you’re not willing?” Zhu Yan stared at him in surprise.
Yang Kai sneered, “If it was Senior, would you be willing?”
Zhu Yan thought about it seriously, “It’s very difficult to refuse…” Even a man would find it difficult to refuse such a temptation, after all, there were several Dragon Ladies.
“Moreover, the Dragon Race cannot tolerate the matter between me and Qing’er. If something were to happen between me and the other Dragon Ladies, how could the Dragon Race tolerate it?”
Zhu Yan immediately said, “If you can quickly improve their bloodlines, not to mention Qing’er, even if all of them marry you, what harm is there in that?”
Yang Kai was flabbergasted by this old man’s boldness, and just thinking about this scene… made his blood boil. However, if this was really the case, then the male Dragon Race on Dragon Island would probably view Yang Kai as a thorn in their side, a thorn in their flesh. Even his little brother-in-law would not be able to escape this fate.
Originally, the Dragon Race’s male and female ratio wasn’t even compatible. If all of Dragon Island’s Dragon Women were to be taken away by Yang Kai, how could the remaining male Dragon Race bear it?
“Senior, please don’t mention this matter, I absolutely won’t,” Yang Kai waved his hand and refused righteously. At the same time, he stole a glance at Zhu Qing’s expression and saw that she was quite happy and relaxed.
“Don’t be in such a hurry to refuse. Go back and think about it, this matter won’t do you any harm,” Zhu Yan waved his hand.
Yang Kai didn’t pursue this matter any further, instead cupping his hands and saying, “There are a few things I need Great Elder to help me with on this trip to Dragon Island.”
Zhu Yan smiled, “The grudge between you and my Dragon Island hasn’t been settled yet, so why are you asking this old master to help you? Is there something wrong with your head or is there something wrong with mine?”
Yang Kai said, “Whether Great Elder admits it or not, it is a fact that this little brat possesses the Dragon Clan’s Origin.”
Zhu Yan thought to himself, If it weren’t for this, you wouldn’t even have had the chance to speak, I would have slapped you to death a long time ago. Moreover, you possess the Ancestral Dragon’s Origin, so you have a lot to do with it.
“Since that’s the case, the boy can barely be considered half a Dragon Race,” Yang Kai continued, “Since he’s half a Dragon Race, isn’t it not too much to ask Great Elder to help him accomplish a few things?”
“That depends on what you’re talking about,” Zhu Yan snorted.
Yang Kai said solemnly, “For the Dragon Race, these things aren’t a big deal. The first thing is that I hope Qing’er can accompany me and leave Dragon Island with me, no longer under house arrest.”
Zhu Yan asked, “What else?”
“This little brat wants to enter Dragon Temple to take a look!” Yang Kai muttered to himself for a moment before continuing, “Last time, I came to Dragon Palace in a hurry and although I managed to attract many Dragon Souls, I didn’t have the time to comprehend anything. This little brat came here to Dragon Palace to learn the Secret Techniques of the Dragon Race!”
Zhu Yan was silent for a moment before asking, “Just these two things?”
“This old master has no objections.”
Yang Kai was stunned and was overjoyed, “Many thanks for Great Elder’s help.”
Zhu Yan chuckled, “This old master doesn’t have any objections, but I don’t know what Second Elder is thinking. If you can convince Second Elder, everything will be fine.”
The corner of Yang Kai’s mouth twitched, “You are the Great Elder, shouldn’t you be the supreme one on Dragon Island?”
Zhu Yan blinked and said, “To the outside world, I am naturally the most respected, but to the inside, I am the Second Elder’s steward. Alright, go find the Second Elder, if you want to fulfill your wish.”
Saying so, he turned around and walked into the tree house.
Yang Kai stared at his back and muttered under his breath.
Zhu Yan’s figure paused for a moment before he turned his head and asked with a twitching expression, “Boy, what did you just say? If you have the guts, say it again!”
Zhu Qing hurriedly said, “He didn’t say anything, Great Elder probably heard wrong, we’ll take our leave first.” Saying so, she grabbed Yang Kai and flew out.
Yang Kai turned around and shouted, “The Great Elder of the Dragon Clan is actually afraid of his wife!” His voice was like a dragon’s roar, causing the leaves to fall.
“Brat, get your ass back here!” Zhu Yan angrily shouted, rolling up his sleeves as he tried to chase after Yang Kai and Zhu Qing, but Yang Kai and Zhu Qing were nowhere to be seen. Cursing non-stop, he put his hands behind his back and straightened his neck, “What a joke, why would this old master be afraid of his wife? If her eyes grow out, this old master won’t lower himself to her level.”
After he finished speaking, he quickly looked around to make sure there was no one around before valiantly returning to his treehouse, like a rooster who had just won a battle.
High up in the sky, Zhu Qing pinched Yang Kai’s ear and angrily said, “Why did you provoke Great Elder? Great Elder is a very good person.”
Yang Kai grinned, “Don’t twist it, my ear is about to fall off, it was just a casual remark.” Reaching out, he grabbed her soft hand and pulled it off.
Zhu Qing said angrily, “Besides, is it shameful to be afraid of your wife?”
Yang Kai grinned, “Men aren’t actually afraid of wife, how could a big man be afraid of their wife?”
“Really?” Zhu Qing glanced over.
“The so-called fear is just a show of tolerance and love.” At this time, Yang Kai naturally knew what to say to win her favor.
Zhu Qing’s expression changed slightly as she glanced at his slightly red ears, the cold look on her face instantly melting away as a sweet feeling filled her heart. However, not long after, her mood became heavy again as she warned, “The Great Elder hurdle is barely passed. When you meet the Second Elder later, you must not lose your temper. As long as you pass the Second Elder’s hurdle, it will be much more convenient for you to come to Dragon Island in the future. Perhaps I can go out to see you in the future.”
“I know, I know, I don’t care what she says later, I’ll just treat it like she’s farting.”
Zhu Qing didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, “You can’t let her hear that.”
Snow Island was Fu Zhun’s Spirit Island. Fu Zhun was an ice dragon, so the Spirit Island she resided on was naturally cold and filled with wind and snow. From afar, the entire Spirit Island looked like a giant iceberg, with thousands of birds flying and thousands of people disappearing.
Before they even got close, a wave of extreme cold swept over them, even freezing the surrounding sea into ice. There seemed to be no life within a few thousand kilometers.
Although this cold was cold, it did not affect Yang Kai or Zhu Qing much.
The two of them flew straight towards the centre of the island, where they saw a giant ice platform made from ten thousand year old ice. Fu Zhun was sitting atop this ice platform, her white robes seemingly blending perfectly with the surrounding scenery.
Falling from the sky, they landed about thirty meters away from Fu Zhun.
Zhu Qing bowed, “Qing’er and her husband, Yang Kai, greet the Second Elder.”
This sudden call of ‘husband’ caused Yang Kai to become somewhat distracted. It wasn’t until Zhu Qing gently touched him that he cupped his hands and said, “Yang Kai greets Second Elder.”
Fu Zhun opened her eyes, her beautiful eyes filled with a cold light that seemed capable of freezing one’s mind, completely ignoring Yang Kai as he stared at Zhu Qing, “Who told you to leave the island without permission? Scram!”
As soon as these words came out, the veins on Yang Kai’s forehead bulged as his anger soared. What was the meaning of this? Qing’er had come to see you out of kindness, but now she was asking her to scram?
Seeing the displeasure on his face, Zhu Qing quickly said, “Qing’er and her husband came here to ask Second Elder for help.”
“Husband?” Fu Zhun sneered, “You’re not married, so how could you have a husband? Even if you did, it should be the dead Fu Chi, not some random guy.”
Zhu Qing said, “Qing’er’s husband is right beside her, so why should Second Elder ignore him?”
Fu Zhun closed her eyes and said, “I don’t see anything about your husband, even if I do, this Queen will not admit it.”
Zhu Qing sighed, “Whether Second Elder admits it or not, it is a fact that my husband and I are husband and wife. Qing’er will never marry anyone else.”
“Since that’s the case, there’s no point in saying anything more. Scram back to where you came from. Come see me when you’ve thought things through.”
“That old witch!” Yang Kai shouted angrily. Although he had repeatedly warned himself to be patient before coming here and had mentally prepared himself for Fu Zhun’s attitude, now that he heard her telling Zhu Qing to scram, he couldn’t help feeling a little annoyed.
