Chapter 617 - Seeing Yin Yang Umbrella Again
Edited by: Molly
Yan Tianhen heard this but didn’t quite understand. “Wait, what does Immortal Blessing Pavilion have to do with you?”
Bai Yanqiu looked at him and answered calmly, “My mother’s surname is Bai. I am the real successor of Immortal Blessing Pavilion. My family has been practicing medicine for generations, but now it has fallen into the hands of others.”
Yan Tianhen opened his mouth wide to exclaim, “So it’s like that.”
Who would have thought that the average-looking Boss Shan, who seemed a bit slow-witted but actually had a black heart, could give birth to such a refined son? Bai Yanqiu probably resembled his mother much more.
Yan Tianhen was somewhat apologetic as he spoke, “Bai Shixiong, I didn’t mean to meddle in your family’s affairs. When I took the mission, I saw that the task involved local ruffians bullying the shopkeeper, so I thought about accepting the mission. However, after I knew about the situation, I risked mission failure and completely ignored the owner.”
Bai Yanqiu smiled slightly. “I know. Shidi, thank you for your trust. In fact, a few years ago, I also thought about taking Immortal Blessing Pavilion away from them. However, I was still young back then, my ability was insufficient, and I spent many years training outside, so I didn’t have the time and energy to manage the huge Immortal Blessing Pavilion. Therefore, I placed Immortal Blessing Pavilion in that couple’s hands for the time being. I was waiting for a good time to sound the drum and sue them in order to snatch it back.”
Bai Yanqiu’s move was pretty poisonous. Instead of letting passion dictate his fights, he temporarily retreated. Firstly, he needed to grow stronger. Secondly, in order to manage Immortal Blessing Pavilion, human capital and financial resources were both indispensable. Since Boss Shan and the three-tailed fox wanted to look after the store for him, why would Bai Yanqiu be dissatisfied?
In any case, these two would certainly manage Immortal Blessing Pavilion properly. After all, these people thought of Immortal Blessing Pavilion as their own property.
Bai Yanqiu, on the other hand, finally felt that the time was right after many years, so he returned to snatch back the Immortal Blessing Pavilion his mother left him. Not only did this plan save him energy, but it also preserved his mother’s business, so what could he have against it?
After thinking about this, Yan Tianhen admired Bai Yanqiu very much. He said with a smile, “Bai Shixiong is thoughtful and far-sighted. When does Bai Shixiong plan to take back the business?”
Bai Yanqiu originally wanted to wait a few more years, but since Yin Nian and Yan Tianhen were worried about this matter and had done so many things for him, he naturally had to reciprocate and let these two younger martial brothers see a satisfying result.
Bai Yanqiu replied, “I returned this time precisely to take back Immortal Blessing Pavilion and get justice for my mother and me.”
Yan Tianhen was immediately overjoyed. In this world, what normal person didn’t like to see satisfying things that upheld virtue and condemned evil, redressing wrongs and clearing people’s hearts?
Yan Tianhen immediately said, “Bai Shixiong, when do you plan to sound the drum and state your grievances? I’ll go with you to boost your confidence!”
Bai Yanqiu naturally had no reason to disagree.
After they consulted with each other, they decided to go to City Lord Qin’s residence to beat the drums in the afternoon, so that they could sue this pair of adulterers and whores.
Lin Xuanzhi was the one who asked Yin Nian to invite Bai Yanqiu, yet from beginning to end, he never participated in this matter. Yan Tianhen naturally wouldn’t let such miscellaneous tasks disturb Lin Xuanzhi’s peaceful cultivation, so he didn’t invite Lin Xuanzhi.
Bai Yanqiu still needed to go back and prepare some more evidence, so he left first after the discussion.
After Bai Yanqiu left, Yan Tianhen couldn’t restrain his curiosity and asked, “Yin Nian, how did you meet this person?”
“In that year, first there was a flood in the North Land, followed by three years of great drought. Countless people died. The demon clans secretly poisoned the river water, spreading plague. One person infected ten, and ten people infected a hundred. Within two months, several cities in a row had become graves for the living dead, and I was also infected. I almost died in that pile of corpses, but Lord Fuxing arrived in time and treated me with medicine, saving my life. At that time, his face was covered by a piece of white gauze, which was used to keep out the poison in the air. When he treated me, I accidentally rubbed off his white gauze and saw his appearance.”
Yan Tianhen suddenly understood. “It turns out that Lord Fuxing saved your life before.”
Yin Nian touched his chin and mused, “If Master and Dad didn’t arrive in time back then, I think I would’ve followed Lord Fuxing and learned the art of medicine instead, helping the world.”
Lin Xuanzhi swept a light glance over him. “Why, do you regret it?”
Yin Nian quickly showed his loyalty and spoke with justice, “Of course, my temper is not suited for learning medicine at all. If I had followed him, there would be one less genius swordsman in the world today.”
Yan Tianhen, “…”
Back then, Lord Fuxing saved Yin Nian and didn’t really care that Yin Nian saw his true appearance. After all, his reputation was not so prominent back then.
After that, Yin Nian happened to meet Lin Xuanzhi and Yin Chongyue, who were passing by. Lin Xuanzhi saw that the child in shabby clothing was very pitiful. His appearance also didn’t look like someone from the North Land. Only after asking the locals did he learn that this child had been abducted and sold, but he had fled here and was now drifting about. Not even the child himself remembered where his hometown was.
Lin Xuanzhi felt compassion. When he touched the child’s origin bone, he found out that this child was born with an innate sword bone, so he accepted him as an apprentice and brought him from the North Land to the south. Lin Xuanzhi personally taught him how to hold the sword, regulate his breathing, strike, and kill.
It could be said that he’d done his best.
What Yin Nian didn’t tell Yan Tianhen was that back then, Lord Fuxing also asked whether he wanted to follow him. Yin Nian thought about it and refused. He didn’t want to be a good person who always helped the world. He was a selfish person; he just wanted to survive.
Because they were going to join in the fun in the afternoon, Yan Tianhen and Yin Nian muttered for half a day before bidding farewell to Lin Xuanzhi and going off to find Bai Yanqiu.
