The Overlord Dragon slowly leaned forward and sent them back to the water surface. Silver light flashed on Gu Yue’s body as she carried Tang Wulin and vanished together from the lake surface in the next moment. They were transported into a far-distant place that they could not even be seen on the shore.
The Sea God’s fate on the Sea God Lake would undoubtedly become a memorable incident of the Sea God Lake Date Festival which everyone dwelled upon with great relish.
The surface of the Sea God Lake was still shimmering, but it appeared slightly dimmed following their departure. It was as if the protagonist of the event had left.
Tang Wulin had never known Gu Yue to be so passionate that he could almost melt in her arms.
She kissed him spontaneously. It was a kiss that tasted slightly salty. Her soft, full sensuous lips parted with ineffable passion bursting forth from within.
How many years had it been since Tang Wulin suppressed the feelings in his heart? He hugged her tightly and wished that he could just hold on to her and be locked in a passionate embrace with her forever.
He did not know where he was, but he knew he was surrounded by trees. He worried not as he was with the most important person in his life.
The kiss lasted for a very long time. They were both young and inexperienced, so inexperienced that they were not sure how to proceed. He could only hold the small of her back tightly while she wrapped her arms around his neck.
It lasted for a long, long time…
It was not until both of them were almost breathless and their lips were swollen, only then did they loosen their embrace and panted loudly.
“If I were to say I don’t love you, will you really kill yourself?” Gu Yue enquired, a little out of breath.
“Why would I kill myself? I was just going to scratch my head with the Golden Dragon Claw.” Tang Wulin chuckled.
Gu Yue raised her head and stared at him, while he took the opportunity to give her lips a soft peck.
“Liar!” Gu Yue spoke in rage.
Tang Wulin smiled and spoke, “If I could lie and convince you, then I’m willing to be a liar for the rest of my life. Gu Yue, I love you.”
Gu Yue paused for a while. When the passion in her heart had subsided, she was calm for a moment before her rational mind took over. She buried her head against his shoulder. Then, a tinge of bitterness showed on her charming face. “You shouldn’t have done that, you know? You’re playing with fire and you’ll get burned. I can’t be together with you. We’re different, so we won’t be together eventually.”
Tang Wulin spoke calmly, “If we are destined to be apart, why worry about it now? Since we’re together now, let’s enjoy the moment. In any case, should this be our destiny, I’ll be by your side to face the future with you no matter how difficult it would be.”
“You don’t understand.” Gu Yue shut her eyes in agony.
“I do!” Tang Wulin spoke with determination.
He did not inquire about Gu Yue’s concern, because he knew that she would tell him sooner or later when she wanted to. On the other hand, if she did not bother to tell him, then he was willing to face it with her no matter what it was.
Gu Yue grabbed his shoulder. She could not bear to leave his arms.
“Wulin.” She looked at him in all seriousness.
Tang Wulin smiled and said, “Tell me what’s on your mind. I believe that you already know my intention, but you should also know that I’ve always been a very persistent person.”
A sense of bitterness was revealed at the corners of Gu Yue’s lips. “What if one day you realize that I’m the enemy that you have no choice but to confront, what would you do?”
Tang Wulin answered, “If the day comes and you’re the enemy I have no choice but to confront, then you should kill me so I can live in your heart. Then we’ll never part at all.” He spoke very calmly. Those were not meant to be sweet-sounding words, nevertheless, tears began streaming uncontrollably down Gu Yue’s face.
Tang Wulin wiped the tears off her face. He cupped her charming face in his hands gently. “What happened? Tell me, so we can face it together.”
Gu Yue shook her head. “No, I can’t. If there is truly such a day, then perhaps I’ll kill you. Aren’t you afraid of death even just a little? Could it be that you aren’t concerned about your family members at all? Let me go. As long as I’m not by your side, I still have control over everything. However, if I remain by your side, you’ll die sooner or later.”
Tang Wulin smiled. “In any case, it’s only because I’m not powerful enough. Gu Yue, don’t worry. I’ll work hard to become more powerful so I can protect you well. Tell me, who’s threatening you? Who are they? We’re in Shrek Academy! Could there be anything else on the continent that our students can’t manage?”
Gu Yue shook her head strenuously. “No, that’s not it. You don’t understand, you just don’t understand.”
Tang Wulin watched as her emotions were suddenly agitated, so he hastily held her in his arms. “Alright, we won’t talk about it then. You can tell me when you’re ready. I’m sorry Gu Yue, but do you know that I really love you so much? Don’t ever leave me no matter how difficult the situation is. I’ll always stay by your side.”
Gu Yue did not speak anymore because she knew that it was impossible to make him change his mind regardless of what she said.
Yet, what should she do? Should she be with him for just a moment’s comfort?
They were not who they once were. They were adults now. Their affection for each other was no longer the silly puppy love it once was.
If they were still together after the Sea God Lake Date Festival, she knew that it would be difficult to keep herself under control and the relationship would only become more serious.
The both of them held each other tightly.
“Let’s go. Come to my place,” Gu Yue whispered softly.
“Sure. I don’t have a place to stay coincidentally.” Tang Wulin had just returned recently, so it was true that he did not have a place to stay.
Silver light shimmered once again. She refused to leave his arms so she could only use her spatial retreat to bring him along as they left silently.
Tang Wulin was astonished to discover that despite his spiritual power which had already attained the spirit abyss rank, Gu Yue still managed to exert a feeling as if the spiritual world was as vast as the ocean when she mobilized her soul power. What rank had her spiritual power already achieved?
Gu Yue’s place was similar to Na’er’s. She too lived in a small wooden cabin on Sea God’s Island, but it was not located in the inner court. This was not a place easily available to an ordinary inner court disciple. She was assigned the cabin only because she was the leader of the Shrek Seven Monsters.
The origin energy on Sea God’s Island was way thicker than the external world. When cultivation was practiced here, any type of martial soul would yield twice the result with half the effort.
She held him as they lay on the wooden bed which was covered with a bedsheet. She cuddled against him as he held her. He did not have any intention to be physically intimate at this moment except for a feeling of pure affection flowing from his heart.
Everything else paled in comparison so long as he could embrace her like this.
Her breathing had returned to normal and was especially relaxed. Her knitted brows were no longer knitted as she fell asleep nestled in his arms like an infant.
He smiled as lethargy crept into his body. He had not rested since he returned. The tranquility of the moment with the woman he loved in his arms made him feel exceptionally contented.
He closed his eyes as he gradually drifted into dreamland and entered into a world that belonged to the both of them.
The Sea God Lake in the early morning had a mysterious beauty to it. Mist clouded over the surface of the lake while blue waves rippled on the water.
She stood by the lakeside for a very long time. Her shoulders were covered with the morning dew, yet she did not have any intention to brush it off.
She appeared like an elf with her silver hair blowing in the morning breeze as she gazed distantly into the foggy dawn.
Her large purple eyes reflected the lakewater. The corners of her lips cracked into a faint smile.
Another woman walked over silently and stood by her side. Her black hair blowing in the wind made her glow with health. There was a faint blush on her charming face.
However, when she saw the other woman, her smile vanished.
They stood side by side as they gazed into the crystal clear lake water before them.
“You’ve won!” Na’er spoke in a soft yet relaxed manner.
“It seems like you really want me to win.” Gu Yue frowned.
Na’er chuckled. “Yes! I actually want you to win badly as I figured that you’d win anyhow. I understand him too well. Can you believe it? I exist only as an episode in his life. I confessed my love for him so I could have a suitable excuse to leave.”
“He would be sad if you were to leave,” Gu Yue spoke.
Na’er shook her head with self-mockery. “I had lost. Am I allowed to stay? However, I had already known that I’ll certainly lose. Anyway, I had to lose, otherwise, he would’ve died for real, right?”
Gu Yue was silent.
