"Welcome back, Xiao'er." Ling Yun, with a gentle smile. He immediately hugged her before planting a longing kiss on her lips.

Xiao Xiao wrapped her hands around Ling Yun's neck directly and closed her eyes again, and she kissed her husband without caring about the two women, especially since they hadn't seen each other after their first night as one.

Somehow, their kiss fueled Nangong Nichang's jealousy, as she started to feel the feeling she had always avoided for so many years. 'Sigh, that woman is his wife, so it's natural if he kisses her. As for me, we are strangers to each other, so I shouldn't feel like this.'

However, Nangong Nichang's attitude and behavior did not escape Zhou Yu's observation, and she tapped her chin lightly while thinking. 'Her feelings for him are still just a seed that has just been planted, and it is still need takes a long time to germinate and bloom, so I have to think of a way to make her stay by his side, or it will disappear again.'

After a while, Ling Yun stopped their kiss and rubbed Xiao Xiao's cheeks. "I'm glad you finally woke up, Xiao'er. I was really afraid that you would ascend to higher realms before me, and I tried my best to catch up with you, but your cultivation was getting further and further away."

"Before my consciousness completely disappeared, I also thought about that, and I was afraid that I would leave you in the lower realm." Xiao Xiao then looked at the area around them and sensed the quality of the qi. "We are already in the upper realms, right? This way, we won't be separated again, and I will stay by your side."

"Yes." Ling Yun nodded to her. "This Sky Cloud Realm is one of many realms in the upper realms, and there are two other realms nearby, the Star Cloud Realm and the Earth Cloud Realm."

"I see." Xiao Xiao then pulled Ling Yun to sit under a shady tree. "I know that I shouldn't be awake now, but you've brought a lot of changes to me, so tell me all the things I've missed over the past few months; I really want to know everything."

Not only Xiao Xiao listened to Ling Yun's stories, but Nangong Nichang also listened to everything, and Zhou Yu didn't stop her from doing that.

Unlike Nangong Nichang, who didn't know about the earth and its inhabitants, Xiao Xiao certainly knew all the cultivators in the cultivator realm. Ling Yun's achievements while she was hibernating were truly extraordinary in her eyes, especially since he destroyed the Mo clan and the Hundred Flower Sect.

Ling Yun then told Xiao Xiao about the Celestial Fortress through voice transmission, for he still couldn't fully believe Nangong Nichang. He was afraid that she would leak everything to others, which would bring a lot of trouble to him and those close to him.

After listening to everything, Xiao Xiao smiled and said to him. "The first time I found out that you were a cultivator, you were still ignorant and inexperienced, and you continued to depend on Ling Xi. However, you have changed a lot in the few months we haven't seen each other, and you have become more reliable now."

"If I weren't like this, I wouldn't be here now, and we would be separated for such a long time if you ascended before me." Ling Yun then hugged Xiao Xiao and told her again. "Anyway, I plan to join the Eternal Spring Sect, and it's a dual cultivation sect."

"I don't think it's a problem." Xiao Xiao replied as she nodded. "You are a dual cultivator, and you also have dozens of women now. So I think that sect is the best choice for you, and I will support your decision, but I will join the sect too."

"Eh?" Ling Yun was surprised to hear that. "Do you really want to join the sect?"

"Yes." Xiao Xiao then said to him. "Even though you have changed a lot, I can't help but worry about you, especially since the cultivators in this realm are powerful, so I will just accompany you to the sect."

"All right." Ling Yun didn't mind it, especially since he could bring Xiao Xiao back to the Celestial Fortress whenever he wanted. Besides, he had not seen her for too long, so he also wanted to spend more time with her. "I will take you back to our residence in two days, and they will be happy to see you awake now, especially my mother."

Hearing that, Xiao Xiao turned to Ling Yun with a suspicious look. "How is your relationship with Sister Mingxia? Have you impregnated her now?"

"Why do you ask that?" Ling Yun immediately asked back after he was done being surprised.

"I knew that Sister Mingxia really wanted a child from you, so I thought you had already impregnated her."

"Haha." Ling Yun laughed wryly at that. "In fact, I've known that for a long time, but I'm not ready to have a child. However, once I become truly strong and our lives stabilize, I will impregnate all of you."

"Hehe." Xiao Xiao chuckled and laid her head on her husband's shoulder. "Back then, my great-grandmother told me that I was destined to be your wife, but I adamantly denied it, especially since I only cared about you as my own little brother. However, I ultimately couldn't escape my destiny, and I am your wife now, so I also want to have several children from you, and they will definitely be as strong as us."

"Don't worry, we will have some cute and strong children in the future."

Xiao Xiao then looked at Nangong Nichang. "Is she also one of your women?"

"Huh?" Nangong Nichang gasped when she heard that, and she immediately denied it. "Big Sis, I only met your husband last night, and I still don't know him, so I'm not his wife."

"Does that mean you want to be his wife if you get to know my husband better?" Nangong Nichang's face became red again, and she turned her head away. She neither agreed nor disagreed with that. 'Hey, husband, what have you done to her?'

'Hmm?' Ling Yun looked at Xiao Xiao with an amused smile. 'Her name is Nangong Nichang, and her clan is the first-grade clan in this realm, and she is a disciple of the Heaven Secrets Sect. Before you woke up, I helped her treat her injuries, and she had to take off her clothes for that.'

'Aren't you interested in her? I think Nichang must have never been in a relationship with any man, or else she wouldn't dress like a man, so I think you can approach her.'

Ling Yun sighed after hearing that, but he admitted that Nangong Nichang was indeed attractive, but he was not attracted to her yet, especially since there were still several women he had not completely conquered. 'I don't want to add to the problem, and I want to focus on all of you for now. As for her, we'll see in the future.'

"Hey, husband! Since Xiao Xiao is accompanying you now, I'll go meet someone first, and you guys don't need to worry about those strong beasts, for they won't be able to get close here."

Without waiting for their answer, Zhou Yu went straight into the void, and Xiao Xiao asked him. 'Since when was she your wife? As far as I remember, only Ling Xi and Lei Lin stayed by your side, so I was really surprised by the relationship between the two of you.'

'Ha ha.' Ling Yun laughed softly and told her about her true relationship with Zhou Yu, causing Xiao Xiao to sigh helplessly.

In the end, Ling Yun did not continue his practice, and he accompanied the two women to chat, but Nangong Nichang was too passive and listened more to their conversation, which more or less began to affect her feelings.




Meanwhile, Zhou Yu had arrived at another place, and she had returned to her true form. She then walked into a room, surprising the old man who was meditating.

Spare no time, the old man immediately prostrated himself in front of Zhou Yu, and his body seemed to be shaking quite strongly. "Why... why... you..."

"Enough." Zhou Yu stopped the old man directly. "Ye Zhong, I came here to ask you about Nangong Nichang."

"Eh?" Ye Zhong looked at Zhou Yu in shock. "What... what do you want to know about Nichang?"

"Has Nangong Yuhai prepared a fiancée for her? I've searched about it in Nichang's memories, but I didn't get any information about it."

Ye Zhong nodded to her. "Yes! Yuhai has prepared a fiancée for her, but their relationship isn't official yet, and he's still waiting for her to reach 21, which won't be long now."

"Who is that man?"

"Huang Ba, the young master of the Huang Clan in Star Cloud Realm, but people don't know about it yet."

Zhou Yu frowned upon hearing that. "Why does Yuhai want to marry Nichang into that clan?"

"I don't know why Yuhai did that." Yen Zhong answered with a shake of his head. "Perhaps they have already done something to the people from the Nangong Clan."

Without saying anything, Zhou Yu immediately disappeared from his sight, and Ye Zhong immediately wiped the sweat from his forehead. "Phew! She's been missing for so long, but she suddenly returned and asked about Nichang."
