Qiangu Dongfeng's brows furrowed slightly as he said, "Don't you think she communicated a bit too much with Tang Wulin on the final day of the joust for a spouse event? I feel like there's something going on between them."
Qiangu Zhangting faltered slightly upon hearing this. "What do you mean, Grandfather?"
Qiangu Dongfeng replied, "I'm wondering if Na'er's heart really lies with you."
"Of course it does! Didn't she crush that bastard already? I had no idea she was that powerful; this is why I have to work even harder in my cultivation! If you ask me, Na'er's powers are most likely close to the Limit Douluo level; this is fantastic news for us!"
A serious look appeared on Qiangu Dongfeng's face, and he continued, "That's why you have to pay even more attention to your grasp on her. Have you really captured her heart? Does she really love you? Trust me when I say this: there was something different about the way she looked at Tang Wulin on that day. If there were nothing going on between them, that wouldn't have been her reaction."
A disdainful look appeared on Qiangu Zhangting's face. "That's just a completely unrequited love from him. Na'er is so exceptional, it's only normal that she attracts others. Didn't you see how cold Na'er was toward him?"
Qiangu Dongfeng sighed, "Foolish boy, it's exactly because of how cold and aloof Na'er was that I'm concerned. Don't you understand? You're allowing yourself to be blinded to the truth."
Qiangu Zhangting protested, "I think you're the one that's blind to the truth. Na'er has told me that I'm the only one she loves, and that she'll marry me once all this turmoil subsides; what's there to be worried about?"
Qiangu Dongfeng asked, "Alright, then how far have you gone with Na'er? Have you had physical relations with her yet? If you want to claim her heart, you have to claim her body first. My concerns would be erased once you've had physical relations with her; having a child with her would be even better."
Qiangu Zhangting blushed slightly upon hearing this. "What are you saying, Grandfather? Na'er and I share a very pure relationship. We're only going to do the deed on the day of our marriage."
"You're an idiot!" Qiangu Dongfeng slapped a palm over his own forehead as he sighed, "Have you been brainwashed by her? Nothing is truly yours until you claim it; why don't you understand? Besides, how do you even know if Na'er is as pure as you think?"
A surprised look appeared on Qiangu Zhangting's face. "How could you say that about Na'er, Grandfather? You weren't like this in the past!"
Qiangu Dongfeng harrumphed coldly, "That's because Na'er couldn't pose any threat back then, but she's different now; her reputation has almost even exceeded my own, and the power she displayed is different from what we saw in the past. Truth be told, even your great-grandfather admits that her combat prowess is already comparable to that of a Limit Douluo. I don't care what you think; seal the deal with her as soon as you can, understood?"
Qiangu Zhangting replied in a sheepish manner, "I understand. There's nothing to be worried about; I'm confident that Na'er would be willing to give herself to me as long as I ask."
"Really?" Qiangu Dongfeng asked in a skeptical manner.
Qiangu Zhangting flared up with indignation. "Don't you have at least that much confidence in me? I'll prove it to you!"
"Alright, that's the spirit! Keep working hard in your cultivation. Enrolment for Shrek Academy is about to begin; we have to take advantage of this opportunity to embarrass them just as they did to us during the joust for a spouse event."
Qiangu Zhangting's eyes immediately lit up. "What's the plan?"
"Focus on taking down Na'er!" Qiangu Dongfeng snapped, "Don't divert your attention to anything else; you'll know when the time comes."
Qiangu Dongfeng departed, and for some reason, Qiangu Zhangting couldn't get his words out of his mind.
Take down Na'er? Seal the deal?
These thoughts were like seeds that took root firmly in his mind, making him feel as if there were a kitten clawing at his heart.
Na'er was so beautiful, and her figure was absolutely flawless. Ever since he first met Gu Yuena, all of Qiangu Zhangting's past lovers had lost all appeal to him.
She was going to marry him eventually anyway, so there was surely no issue in sealing the deal and assuaging his grandfather's doubts.
With that in mind, Qiangu Zhangting felt as if his heart had been set alight. He had been waiting for this day for far too long.
He picked up his soul communicator and dialed that familiar number.
"Na'er, where are you right now?" Qiangu Zhangting asked in an urgent voice.
"I'm in my room. What's going on? Why do you sound like you're in such a rush?" Gu Yuena asked.
"It's alright, I just really miss you. I'll go find you," Qiangu Zhangting replied as he repressed the arousing images that had begun to surface in his mind.
Na'er hesitated momentarily before replying, "Alright, come on over then."
"Wait for me, I'll go after I take a shower," Qiangu Zhangting said.
After ending the call, he immediately took a shower and changed into a set of clean clothes. He then inspected himself in the mirror to ensure that he was presenting himself in the best possible way, then immediately headed to Gu Yuena's room.
Gu Yuena had her own area in the Spirit Pagoda headquarters, not just her own room, but also a living area, cultivation area, etc.
This was the same level of treatment that Qiangu Zhangting received.
Gu Yuena was waiting for him in her living area, and his heart immediately melted at the sight of her.
She was currently wearing a set of loose-fitting white robes, but even that couldn't conceal her stunning figure.
Her long silver hair was draped down her back as a ponytail, and her face was slightly flushed with vitality, seemingly a result of her earlier cultivation.
"What's going on, Zhangting?" Gu Yuena asked with a smile.
Qiangu Zhangting gulped nervously before taking a seat beside her. He had already prepared a long speech in his mind, but all of that suddenly completely slipped his mind at the sight of Gu Yuena.
Gu Yuena was his goddess, and he couldn't bear to defile her, but the scorching flames in his heart were overriding his sense of reason.
"Na'er, Grandfather just came to me and said a lot of strange things," Qiangu Zhangting said.
"Oh? What did the chairman say?" Gu Yuena asked.
Qiangu Zhangting rubbed his hands together, and replied, "Grandfather is urging us to get married earlier."
Gu Yuena countered, "But the joust for a spouse event has only just ended, and technically, I'm supposed to be Lan Fuozi's girlfriend. If we get married now, the Spirit Pagoda's reputation will take a big hit. That Lan Fuozi is no ordinary character, either, so we can't take him lightly."
Qiangu Zhangting hesitated momentarily before continuing, "We don't necessarily have to get married, but Grandfather says that we should have a child first."
He stole a nervous glance at Gu Yuena as he spoke.
A cold light flashed through Gu Yuena's eyes, and she said, "Are these your intentions or your grandfather's intentions? You promised me that you would respect me and refrain from physical relations prior to our marriage."
"I did say that; please don't get angry, Na'er. It's just that, we've been together for so long, but I haven't even held your hand once; can we be a little more intimate? I love you so much, Na'er; I'm struggling to hold myself back."Previous Chapter Next Chapter
