As he was deep in thoughts, he heard some laughter from outside. He raised his head and saw Feng Qing Ge holding onto Feng Xiao affectionately and walking towards him.
Looking at how close they were, he became unsure. This father and daughter pair had always been close. How could such affection and intimacy be faked? If she was not the real Feng Qing Ge, how could Feng Xiao not notice?
However, he did not know, to Feng Xiao, he held his family with high regard. If he were to ever suspect anyone, it would never be his own family, not to mention his own daughter whom he doted heavily on.
Even if he did notice that she was a little different, he would never ever think of something so ridiculous as an imposter who had taken on the same appearance as his daughter.
Moreover, to him, no matter how wayward she was, she would always be the apple of his eyes. No matter what she did, he would always stand on her side. Unconditional love, that was what it was. He would never doubt her.
“Big Brother Murong!”
Feng Qing Ge loosened her grip and let go of Feng Xiao’s hand and happily skipped over to his side, her eyes were bright and sparkled with affection as she cheerfully asked, “Have you waited for a long time?”
As he gathered his thoughts and calmed himself, he distractedly put down the teacup in his hand. He then looked up and smiled, ” No, I’ve just arrived not too long ago.”
He looked over at Feng Xiao and ceremoniously called out, “Uncle Xiao.”
In the Feng Household, his identity was not of the Third Prince but the future son-in-law and they had watched them grow up together, therefore he paid his respects as a younger generation would.
“Oh, it’s Yi Xuan! Since you are here, help me bring this girl out. With you around, I feel more assured.”
Feng Xiao laughed heartily: “The journey to Peach Blossom Monastery takes around two hours, this girl has already dawdled on for so long, don’t waste anymore time and head over as soon as you can!”
“Father, you really don’t want to go together with us? Since you’ll be idling about at home, why don’t you just join us? Then I can accompany you and we can admire the beautiful blooms together. The scenery is breathtaking! She hooked her arms around Feng Xiao’s arms and asked in a coquettish tone.
When he heard this, Feng Xiao laughed out heartily once more. “Ha ha ha, no..no… with Yi Xuan around, I’ll just be a light bulb. Go on and enjoy yourselves. No need to rush back!”
He looked over to Murng Yi Xuan and said, “Yi Xuan, I will have to trouble you to take care of this little girl of mine.”
Towards this future son-in-law of his, he was very satisfied. The two of them had grown up together and had mutual affection towards each other, tying the knot was just a matter of time, all that’s left was to pick a date.
“Uncle Xiao, please rest assured, I will take good care of Qing Ge.”
He looked at the shy Feng Qing Ge who had on a slight blush. He flashed a resplendent smile to cover up the tangled feeling he harboured in his heart.
Feng Xiao walked them to their horse carriage and until the carriage was out of sight did he turn back and walk back to the Feng Mansion.
-At the Peach Blossom Monastery-
As she strolled along the small path inside the Peach Blossom Monastery, the scenery was beautiful and the more she looked, the happier Feng Jiu felt. With every step she took, she felt more satisfied with what she saw, without a doubt, this place was the best location! It was beneficial for both cultivation as well as recuperation.
Peach Blossom Monastery was located in the the southern region of Cloudy Moon City. There was actually an entire mountain that was full of various colours and variety of Peach Blossoms. There was simply no end to the splendour!
The Peach Blossom Monastery was built in the inner perimeter of this paradise and it was a forbidden place, no outsiders were allowed to set foot in here.
Every year, during the month of march when the peach blossoms were in full bloom, this was a scenic spot that attracted many visitors. Many people would come by this Peach Blossom Mountain to enjoy the spectacular sight as they admired the beauty of nature in the outer perimeter of this Peach Blossom Mountain. Many would also try to catch a glimpse of the Peach Blossom Monastery. Now, the right to enter this paradise belonged entirely to her.
After she explored her new abode, she came to a stop. “Leng Shuang, didn’t the Black Market send some guards over? Go and inform them to head over to the foot of the mountain and close the mountain for three days.
