“Want… want to kill me?” Shangguan Yu was shocked, “Why would Big Brother Wei want to kill me? I didn’t do anything to let him down.”
Shangguan Long sighed and walked over to the table, pulling her daughter’s hand to sit down as she gently said, “Mother naturally knows you didn’t do anything wrong to him, Mother also believes your words, but does your Big Brother Wei believe you?”
“What… what do you mean?” Shangguan Yu was confused.
Shangguan Long said, “It’s been more than two years since you were abducted by that Mo Ning, right? That Mo Ning’s reputation has spread far and wide. Who doesn’t know that he’s a lustful lecher? With his identity as Black Feather Sect’s Young Sect Master and the backing of that Black Feather Old Ghost, he has ruined the purity of countless women’s families over the years. You were abducted by Mo Ning for two years and there has been no news of you since then. It was all thanks to the Soul Lamp in my hand that I was able to confirm that you were still alive. Black Feather Sect were like a stray dog fleeing across the world, yet that Mo Ning still brought you with him. What does Big Brother Wei think of this?”
Shangguan Yu said with a pale face, “Mother meant that Big Brother Wei would want to… but I really didn’t do anything wrong to Big Brother Wei. After I was abducted by Mo Ning, I immediately used the Secret Technique you taught me to freeze myself. When I woke up, I saw Father, I…”
“Would your Big Brother Wei believe you?” Shangguan Long interrupted her and stared at her coldly.
Shangguan Yu was speechless.
“Even if you don’t care what Mother thinks, it’s your Big Brother Wei’s opinion. Silly girl, why don’t you think about it yourself?”
Shangguan Yu said in a trembling voice, “I can explain it to him, he will definitely believe me.”
Shangguan Long chuckled sarcastically, “Fine, even if your Big Brother Wei believes you, what about the entire Raising Heaven Pavilion? Will anyone believe you?”
“I don’t care if others believe me or not, as long as Big Brother Wei believes me,” Shangguan Yu shook her head, her eyes filled with determination, obviously having great confidence in her beloved.
“If Wei Wushuang was an ordinary cultivator, it’s true that he wouldn’t care about others, but since he is the Young Pavilion Master of Raising Heaven Pavilion, it’s not up to him to decide!” Shangguan Long patted the back of her daughter’s hand and said sincerely, “If you really enter the Wei Family’s main gate and become the Young Pavilion Master’s wife, Wei Wushuang won’t be able to raise his head in the future, and Wei Jiuweng won’t allow you to enter his house.”
Shangguan Yu’s face suddenly paled.
Shangguan Long let out a long sigh, “From the moment you were abducted, there was no way to reverse the situation. Wei Wushuang may have really cared about your safety at the beginning and wanted to save you, but after two years, his thoughts should have changed somewhat.”
“You and Wei Wushuang were childhood sweethearts, a perfect match, it was also because of this that his Raising Heaven Pavilion couldn’t easily annul the engagement, otherwise it would be offending my Flying Flower Boat! Since this engagement can’t be annulled, could it be that Wei Wushuang really wants to marry you in the future? There is only one way to solve this problem!”
“What method?” Shangguan Yu’s body trembled as she stared blankly at her mother.
“If you die, everything will be fine!” Shangguan Long stared at her indifferently, “If you die, Wei Wushuang naturally won’t have to marry you, and Raising Heaven Pavilion won’t offend my Flying Flower Boat. This is the best of both worlds.”
Shangguan Yu stood up in shock and couldn’t help taking a few steps back, as if she was in great panic. Shaking her head, she said, “It’s not like that, Mother, it’s not like that. You’re just talking to yourself, Big Brother Wei is definitely not that kind of person.”
Shangguan Long said lightly, “If it really isn’t, why are you so flustered? I’m afraid you also believe it in your heart, don’t you? Do you want to know why you have such thoughts? It’s not that Mother’s words are reasonable, it’s that you’ve already noticed it, it’s just that you haven’t realized it yet.”
“Although you’ve sealed yourself these past two years, you haven’t completely lost your senses, so you’ve more or less noticed some of the movements in the outside world. Think about it, how many battles has Black Feather Old Ghost experienced in these past two years? There were a few battles where my Flying Flower Boat chased after him and fought with Black Feather Sect, and the other battles were likely caused by Raising Heaven Pavilion. In those battles, did you hear your Big Brother Wei calling out to you? Did you feel that Raising Heaven Pavilion wanted to save you?”
Shangguan Long sneered coldly, “If I’m not mistaken, in those battles, Raising Heaven Pavilion couldn’t wait to destroy that Black Feather Old Ghost's ship and kill everyone, right?”
“As long as they can exterminate Black Feather Sect and kill you while they're at it, they can tell Mother that it was Black Feather Sect who was desperate to kill you. With no witnesses, what can I do to them?”
Shangguan Long’s words were so harsh that Shangguan Yu couldn’t bear it any longer and covered her ears, “Mother, I don’t believe it, I don’t believe it.”
“Whether you believe me or not, this is the truth!” Shangguan Long coldly snorted, “My Flying Flower Boat and Raising Heaven Pavilion set out together to pursue Black Feather Sect. We had agreed that if we found any trace of Black Feather Sect, we would immediately send a message to the other party to form a pincer attack. However, even though they discovered Black Feather Sect several times, they didn’t send a message in time. Every time we rushed over, Black Feather Old Ghost had already escaped. If Raising Heaven Pavilion had no other intentions, how could they have done so?”
Shangguan Yu had already collapsed to the ground, tears streaming down her face like broken pearls as she muttered, “I don’t believe you!”
Shangguan Long said, “If you don’t believe me, just wait. I’ve already sent a message to Raising Heaven Pavilion and they should meet up with us in a few days. At that time, you’ll see how your Big Brother Wei will treat you!”
Hearing the words ‘Big Brother Wei’, Shangguan Yu’s dim eyes finally lit up and she took a deep breath, gritting her teeth as she looked towards her mother, “I will ask him. Mother, you’re wrong, Big Brother Wei won’t abandon me.”
Saying so, she wiped her eyes and left.
After she left, a figure flashed in from outside. It was Tong Yuquan, the Right Protector of the Flying Flower Boat and also Shangguan Yu’s father, Shangguan Long’s husband.
However, at this moment, Tong Yuquan’s face was filled with anger as he glared at Shangguan Long and said, “You’re wise, Yu’er has deep feelings for Wei Wushuang and will never marry anyone other than him in this life, so why are you attacking her like this? Are you still her mother?”
Shangguan Long coldly snorted before raising her hand and pouring herself a cup of tea, lightly saying, “It’s precisely because I’m her mother that I have to say all this to her. It’s all for her own good.”
“Then why do you want her to seduce Yang Kai?” Tong Yuquan clenched his fists, the veins on his neck twitching, “Is it also for her own good?”
“Nonsense! I think you’re doing this for your own greed!” Tong Yuquan clenched his teeth and spat, “Although that Yang Kai is only an Emperor Realm, since he was able to create a second class force, his prospects are obviously great. If you can form a relationship with him, you’ll be like a tiger with wings!”
Shangguan Long glanced at him indifferently and calmly said, “Oh? You can also see that his prospects are great? Since you can see that, what’s wrong with me letting my daughter follow him? That Wei Wushuang is only the Raising Heaven Pavilion’s Young Pavilion Master. Although he has some aptitude, it’s nothing more than that. If he were to lose his status as Raising Heaven Pavilion’s Young Pavilion Master, he would be nothing, but that Yang Kai is different. Not only can he establish a Second Class Force, but he also has a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator as his guard. How small can his achievements be in the future? The difference between these two is like the clouds and mud. If it were you, who would you choose to be your son-in-law? What’s more, Wei Wushuang’s thoughts over the past two years, it’s not like you haven’t noticed anything wrong with what I said to Yu’er.”
Tong Yuquan’s face sank as he said, “Wei Wushuang really isn’t worth entrusting, but do you know what kind of temperament Yang Kai has? It’s only our first time meeting him.”
Shangguan Long chuckled lightly, “That’s right, this is the first time we’ve met, but don’t forget, I’m a woman, so I have a good eye for men. I doesn’t care about that Yang Kai moral character, he’s always someone who does great things. If Yu’er follows him, she won’t be humiliated.”
“No matter what he does, if Yu’er doesn’t like it, everything will be meaningless!”
“As time passes, love will naturally form!” Shangguan Long coldly snorted, “If they can live together day and night in the future, when Yu’er gives birth to a son or two, how could she not like him? If that’s the case, not only will Yu’er obtain her own happiness, my Flying Flower Boat might even be able to seize the opportunity to annex the Void Land. At that time, my strength will definitely increase greatly!”
“Shangguan Long, how did you become like this?” Tong Yuquan stared blankly at his woman, as if he was looking at a stranger.
“If you have the mood to question me, why don’t you try to persuade Yu’er? I know that Yu’er has always had a good relationship with you and is very obedient to you, so your advice to her is more useful than mine. Of course, you can also choose to deceive her out of goodwill, but when the time comes, she will likely be even more hurt!”
Tong Yuquan grit his teeth and glared at her while Shangguan Long remained indifferent.
“Viper Woman!” Tong Yuquan cursed and also slammed the door.
Shangguan Long’s eyes twitched as she smashed the teacup in her hand onto the ground, smashing it into pieces!
A few days later, Yang Kai, who was meditating, clearly noticed that the Lotus Flower Artifact on the Flying Flower Boat had suddenly stopped advancing. Two hours later, it continued forward.
Confused, he called Lu Xue over to inquire about the situation and learned that the people from Raising Heaven Pavilion had rushed over to meet up with Flying Flower Boat.
Presumably, Flying Flower Boat had sent a message to inform them of their location.
Yang Kai extended his Divine Sense and carefully examined it. Sure enough, next to the Lotus Flower Artifact, there was a huge palace. There were also many Open Heaven Stage masters inside the palace, so it should be Raising Heaven Pavilion artifact.
Although this palace looked different from the Flowing Time Temple, it should be a collection of artifacts that could be used for many different purposes.
Soon after, many cultivators from Raising Heaven Pavilion boarded the Lotus Flower Artifact.
After another two hours, there was a sudden knock on the door and Lu Xue’s voice rang out, “Sir, Raising Heaven Pavilion’s Young Pavilion Master Wei Wushuang has come to visit, saying he wishes to thank Sir for saving his fiancee life.”
Although Yang Kai didn’t want to see him, he was here to thank him, so it wouldn’t be good to refuse him, so he could only invite Wei Wushuang inside.
