Gu Louyin’s actions can not be considered sudden; Xiao Yuan could have avoided him. But before he could avoid it, he unexpectedly met Gu Louyin’s eyes. His eyes that used to be untouched by mortal desires had at some point filled with lust, creating quite a contrast to his original cleanness and momentarily made Xiao Yuan lose his concentration.
After all, the silver-haired sword cultivator in front of him was so mesmerizing that he could fall into a trap if he wasn’t careful. Xiao Yuan had never thought that he would be captivated by beauty one day.
When he recovered, something soft and cool was already covering his lips. Xiao Yuan couldn’t help but wonder how this illusionary realm could be so real, that even the feeling of touching each other’s lips was so, so……
Xiao Yuan couldn’t tell how he felt. The only thing that was certain was that he and Gu Louyin were not suitable for doing this kind of thing. He wanted to retreat but was blocked by the door behind him. He put his hand on Gu Louyin’s chest and tried to push him away.
However, instead of being pushed away, Gu Louyin grabbed his wrist, placed it next to his face and pressed it firmly to the door.
Xiao Yuan: “…” Where is his Bihai Chaosheng?! He needed his fan to slap this deviant sword cultivator on the head! He couldn’t believe it was the same man. Was this really Gu Louyin who always abided by the rules of etiquette? Did he think he could do whatever he wanted just because he was in the illusionary realm?
Xiao Yuan was about to have a fit when Gu Louyin suddenly straightened up and their lips parted.
Gu Louyin probably had no experience, his lips just pressed to Xiao Yuan’s mouth as if he was a child playing house. Xiao Yuan lowered his eyes. His wrist clenched by Gu Louyin’s hand was firm, and he wondered if this level of flirtation was worth risking his exposure by summoning Bihai Chaosheng. But he knew in his heart that even if he summoned Bihai Chaosheng, he might not be Gu Louyin’s opponent.
While he was thinking, his lips opened unconsciously, slightly reddened. The desire in Gu Louyin’s eyes grew even greater. He lowered his head again and kissed Xiao Yuan’s lips. This time, he was not satisfied with tasting it half heartedly and plunged deep into Xiao Yuan’s mouth.
Xiao Yuan’s breath halted, and Gu Louyin’s aura was all around him, clear and cold, making him think of the plum blossoms blooming in the wind and snow in Chanxin Courtyard.
Gu Louyin’s whole body felt slightly cold. Could it be that he was a human created by the ice and snow cultivated on the mountain?
This was the first time Xiao Yuan was like this with someone while conscious. Compared with the Acacia Gu attack, it seemed that there was something less and something more.
Xiao Yuan blinked absent-mindedly and his long feathery eyelashes swept across Gu Louyin’s face, causing him to breathe heavily again.
When Gu Louyin raised his head, his cheeks were flushed. Gu Louyin looked down at him, his eyes deep and dark, and he repeated in a hoarse voice what he had just said: “Apart from guilt, there are… other things.”
Okay, okay, I know there are other things, can you let me go first?
Xiao Yuan whispered, “It hurts.”
Gu Louyin seemed at a loss, “I kissed you and hurt you?”
Xiao Yuan was speechless for a while, then moved his wrist slightly and calmly said, “I mean my hand.”
Gu Louyin glanced at Xiao Yuan’s hand that was pressed to the door and immediately let go, “Sorry, I didn’t mean to.”
Xiao Yuan was finally able to get out of the narrow gap between Gu Louyin and the door. He lowered his head and rubbed his wrist, not looking at Gu Louyin. Gu Louyin’s strength was a bit too much, but he still had a sense of measure and he didn’t leave any marks on his wrist.
Although Xiao Yuan was not acquainted with the romantic scene, he was not a fool. Gu Louyin had done his part, and of course he knew what ‘other things’ he was talking about. After thinking about it again and again, Xiao Yuan said, “Yin and Yang are separated, people and ghosts have their own paths. You… accept the situation and move on.”
Gu Louyin hummed “en”.
Xiao Yuan felt that he wasn’t going to move on at all and said, “You have already seen me, so stop summoning my soul and do other things. With your cultivation base, why should you stay in the deserted snow-capped mountain? The world is so big and there are so many monsters, demons and ghosts. There are many things you can do.”
Gu Louyin nodded and said, “Okay.”
Xiao Yuan was a little surprised. Gu Louyin agreed so readily. He had even prepared a long speech. So it seemed that Gu Louyin was not too dead set in his ways and could still listen to someone.
Gu Louyin asked, “If you have any unfinished wish, you can tell me.”
“Wish…” Xiao Yuan smiled, “I want to destroy Yunjian Pavilion, do you want to help me?”
Gu Louyin thought for a while and said, “Yes.”
Xiao Yuan was very surprised. On the day when Gu Louyin was demonized and injured his fellow disciples, it could be said that he was forced by the situation. Asking him to destroy Yunjian Pavilion was not the same as hurting some elders. Yunjian Pavilion was Gu Louyin’s shimen in the end. Whether Gu Hang was Gu Louyin’s biological father or not, Gu Louyin had called him “father” for many years. Could Gu Louyin really do it?
Gu Louyin could see what he was thinking and said, “You want to destroy Yunjian Pavilion but you don’t want to slaughter Yunjian Pavilion.”
“Correct.” Most of the people in Yunjian Pavilion were innocent disciples, and Xiao Yuan had no interest in taking their lives or spilling their blood. He was not Xiao Du.
Gu Louyin said, “Why did Yunjian Pavilion become the number one in the world in just ten years?”
Xiao Yuan understood, “You mean Qingyan?”
Xiao Yuan didn’t want to go head-to-head with Yunjian Pavilion and had been trying to dampen its edge. Xiao Du probably had this idea before, so he forced him to go to Yunjian Pavilion to steal Qingyan. Qingyan was the treasure of Yunjian Pavilion. The reason why Yunjian Pavilion’s swords were unparalleled in the world was because they were refined by Qingyan. If Qingyan could be destroyed or taken away, Yunjian Pavilion would be an eagle losing its wings. What qualifications would they have to be the world’s number one sword sect then.
Yunjian Pavilion knew the importance of Qingyan better than anyone and had already placed a blood ban spell on Qingyan, so only the bloodline of the Gu family could get close to Qingyan. It was true that Gu Louyin rebelled against his shimen, but the blood of the Gu family was still flowing in his body.
Xiao Yuan asked, “Will you steal Qingyan?”
“And destroy Yunjian Pavilion?”
Xiao Yuan opened his lips, not knowing what to say. At this moment, the illusion suddenly distorted. He was unsteady and almost fell. Fortunately, Gu Louyin quickly supported him.
The two looked out the window at the same time; it was pitch black outside and they couldn’t see anything. The longer the soul summoning illusion lasted, the more spiritual power it consumed, and even Gu Louyin couldn’t last long.
Xiao Yuan said, “I really have to go.”
Gu Louyin’s eyes were fixed on him. “Don’t go.”
Xiao Yuan felt helpless, “I have said everything I have to say, what else do you want to do?”
Gu Louyin paused and said, “I want to take you to see my mother.”
When Gu Louyin took him to Dongguan Mountain, he specially took him to his mother’s grave. Was this also one of Gu Louyin’s obsessions, or was it that once a sword cultivator had someone he liked, he wanted to take them to his parents? Xiao Yuan remembered the gentle voice in the wedding hall and said, “That’s not your mother, or even her soul, she’s just your memory.”
Gu Louyin said, “I know.”
Xiao Yuan pressed the center of his eyebrows and said, “Okay, then I’ll leave after seeing her – where is she?”
Gu Louyin said, “I only have to see my parents on the second day after I get married.”
Xiao Yuan felt as if he had been set up, “Where does today and tomorrow come from in an illusion?”
“It’s time to get some sleep.”
“Sleep?” Xiao Yuan looked at the wedding bed with a stiff expression, “I’m not sleeping.”
Gu Louyin said: “You sleep, I will guard you.”
“This is not very good, right? You spending so much spiritual power to create an illusion just to let me sleep? I think it’s…”
Before Xiao Yuan finished speaking, Gu Louyin stopped him and picked him up. Gu Louyin walked to the bed, gently placed him on the red quilt, took off the heavy crown from his hair and whispered softly, “Go to sleep.”
Gu Louyin sat on the side of the bed, and even his crimson wedding dress could not hide his refined and pure feeling. Seeing the refusal written all over Xiao Yuan’s face, he said, “This is the last time.”
“In the future, I will not summon you again.” Gu Louyin said, “I will do what you want me to do, and then…” He stopped and said, “Wait for me, it won’t be long.”
Xiao Yuan frowned, vaguely feeling that Gu Louyin’s words were not right. He wanted to speak, but suddenly was overwhelmed with drowsiness. He didn’t know if it was because he had been on the road for days, or his soul was too tired from the effects of his body, or there was something tricky in the illusion. Gu Louyin’s face gradually became blurred and his eyelids became heavier and heavier. He could no longer hold on and fell asleep.
