The following year.
It was drizzling with a gentle breeze.
Jiang Lan stood at the Ninth Summit’s square, cleaning with a broom in his hand.
Xiao Yu was not by his side. She had returned to the Third Summit.
In two days, it would be the wedding day set by Kunlun.
At this moment, Jiang Lan’s heart wasn’t calm, so he started to clean up.
He still remembered what his Senior Sister said when she returned to the Third Summit. She said, “Junior Brother, don’t pull the grass these few days. Don’t clean the house. Don’t look at the sky. Don’t read books. If you really can’t do it, you can cultivate.”
She was worried that he would fall into a state of enlightenment during these two days.
In fact, he would never make the same mistake again.
He did not speak to his Senior Sister about it directly and only mentioned it occasionally.
Since his Senior Sister did not believe him, he would not mention it.
It was not bad to see his Senior Sister often.
The fallen leaves were gently swept away, and Jiang Lan’s originally unstable heart also calmed down.
Was he feeling uneasy or excited?
He couldn’t tell, but these two days seemed extremely important to him.
It could directly affect his life.
He didn’t know if others could treat it calmly, but at least he couldn’t.
“It feels rather troublesome,” Jiang Lan thought. Then, he looked at the peak of the Ninth Summit.
“I wonder if Master is staying alone to avoid such trouble.”
Everyone had different attitudes when it came to such matters, but one would eventually feel lonely when one grew old.
Therefore, once he reached a certain level, he had to try to probe his master’s intentions.
He wanted to find an old partner for his master.
He was becoming stronger. He could also consider retirement for his master.
Voices could be heard from the sky. They were flying Dharma treasures.
They were the big shots invited by Kunlun.
The Eighth Prince had mentioned it before.
He didn’t care much because it wouldn’t affect him.
Kunlun would definitely not let anything happen to the wedding as it concerned the Jade Pool.
No mistakes were allowed.
Since the wedding was set in stone, no one could stop Kunlun from completing it.
Even the dragons could not do it.
Not to mention that the dragons with the right to speak were also anxious to complete the wedding.
As for the spies, the list was sent last year and most of them were cleared.
The knowledgeable Yu Yuan was still preserved. His cultivation level had reached the Human Immortal Realm.
So far, there was no spy that could compare to him.
“What are you thinking about?” A voice suddenly sounded from the side.
Jiang Lan turned around and saw his master’s figure slowly appear.
“Master.” Jiang Lan bowed respectfully.
“Don’t think too much about it. Just calm your heart.
There’s no need to pay too much attention to it. The wedding might be grand, but it’s not complicated. When the time comes, I’ll tell you to head to the Kunlun Great Hall from the Ninth Summit.
Just like when you were engaged, you can bring the Goddess back after receiving the blessings.
You two only need to complete the ritual.
You don’t have to do anything else,” said Mo Zhengdong.
Jiang Lan nodded slightly.
That was good. He did not need to see anyone or do anything.
He would not reveal too much by doing so.
It could be said that it would not affect him much, but in reality, his entire life had changed.
He was at a loss.
Ever since he found out about the engagement, he had made preparations.
He had originally thought that he would be able to calmly accept marriage and not have too many emotional fluctuations.
He had overestimated himself.
Of course, he didn’t hate this kind of overestimation. Experiencing this kind of uneasiness and helplessness was also a very important part of life.
“The wedding affects your entire future. It’s normal to be a little nervous. Don’t mind it too much. Just focus on welcoming the day and take it seriously,” Mo Zhengdong consoled.
“Yes.” Jiang Lan nodded.
He really didn’t have to care too much about it, and it was a happy thing.
He understood the logic but it was not easy to calm down.
The next day.
Jiang Lan sat in the courtyard and looked at the starry sky.
When the sun rose tomorrow, it would be his and Xiao Yu’s wedding day.
The Kunlun disciples had been waiting for the next day for a long time. Many people came from other places for the same reason.
As for whether they were waiting for the grand ceremony or for something else, no one knew.
Jiang Lan only knew that he was waiting to marry his Senior Sister.
He did not cultivate tonight, or rather, he did not cultivate for the past two days. Most of the time, he was reading and cleaning.
He was waiting quietly for the time to come.
He had already received the wedding clothes and needed to change into them tomorrow.
Actually, he knew very little about Kunlun’s arrangements and the wedding process.
It was as if this wedding was a catalyst for many people.
No one cared about him, and Kunlun had no intention of pushing him out to let others know.
Everyone had their own motives.
“Brother-in-law.” The Eighth Prince’s voice came from outside the courtyard.
He turned around and saw the Eighth Prince bringing the youth over.
They were holding something pretty.
“Big brother.” The youth came to the yard and placed the gift on the table.
“I heard that one needs to give gifts for a marriage. This is a gift that we have prepared for a long time.”
Jiang Lan took the gift and opened it.
It was peanuts.
They spent a long time wrapping it up? Jiang Lan thought.
However, he still thanked him and accepted it.
This was the first wedding gift he had received.
Even though it was only peanuts, the youth normally gave peanuts as well so this present was not surprising.
It was fine as long as the thought was there.
“That’s right.” The youth sat across from Jiang Lan.
“What does big brother usually do? I want to see if I can figure out a way to make Hong Ya not hate me. It would be even better if she likes me and is willing to marry me.”
“Wake up.” The Eighth Prince also sat down.
He had taught the youth for hundreds of years, but the youth never listened to him.
“What do I usually do?” Jiang Lan didn’t hide anything.
“I watch the sunrise in the morning, watch the sunset in the evening, and observe the changes happening around the world. I also read books during the day and cultivate at night. I then repeat this for cycles.”
“You’ve been reading books and cultivating? Then how did you marry Sister Goddess?” The youth asked curiously.
“Are you stupid? Young man, don’t you understand?” The Eighth Prince was exasperated.
“Brother-in-law has been comprehending the Heavens and Earth all these years to strengthen his mental state. He doesn’t slack off in his cultivation either, and he ceaselessly improves.
When he becomes an immortal, it will be the day of his wedding. This is also what’s happening tomorrow.
Brother-in-law is telling you that when you step on the wings of the Hong Ya, she will look up to you and worship you. Only then can there be further development.”
“Big brother, is that what you mean?” The youth looked at Jiang Lan.
“…” After a moment of silence, Jiang Lan spoke.
“Becoming stronger will allow you to do more things. When you encounter danger, you won’t be so powerless.”
The young man looked at the Eighth Prince and said.
“Did you hear that? Big Brother didn’t let me step on Hong Ya’s wings.
Besides, that person from the royal family also said that the words of a dragon cannot be trusted.”
“Last time, that person even said that helping a woman when she was helpless would leave the best impression.
You risked your life to save Hong Ya but does she have a good impression of you?
Believe me, they are all ordinary people that do not belong to the same world as us,” said the Eighth Prince disdainfully.
“Why not?” The young man was unconvinced.
“Hong Ya said that if I was in danger, she would risk her life to save me.”
“That’s right. She thinks you’re weak and looks down on you,” the Eighth Prince said.
The youth was confused.
Jiang Lan just sat at the side and watched the two of them argue.
It was indeed better to become stronger.
As for how to marry a woman…
He did not know about this. He was paired with Xiao Yu directly.
Furthermore, Xiao Yu had taken the initiative to express her goodwill. She wanted things to develop in a good direction.
He felt it and responded wholeheartedly.
Perhaps it was because of this.
One had to make the first move and the other would need to respond well..
