ge mood, they got on the road.
Traveling quickly, it would take about a day to reach Wuying Pavilion.

“Gu xiong, are you sure we’re at the right place?” Ye Mochen pushed aside the gauze clad woman, his face full of doubt.
The building before them bore a plaque on which three giant characters were inscribed, reading “Spring Breeze Manor”. 

A woman whose head was covered in jewels and pearls and exuded a strong fragrance greeted them, “Gongzi, which girls strike your fancy?”

All the women had exquisitely madeup faces.
Each and every one of them was fair and blushing.
They were thinking that these several newly arrived gongzi were all handsome and talented, and if they could manage to bed one of them, they wouldn’t even care if they were paid or not.

“Coming and going with nary a shadow, where is the master of Wuying Pavilion?” Gu Feng casually uttered the secret phrase.
Wuying Pavilion’s influence was spread across the entire continent, and brothels were their point of contact.
They would convey messages directly to Wuying Pavilion.

Last life, he had been traveling with Mo Ran and Gu Yunxi to the Hundred Flowers Festival when Gu Yunxi was abducted along the way.
He and Mo Ran spent a great deal of effort to find her, and he became familiar with Wuying Pavilion’s workings at that time. 

“Ah, so you’re guests.
Come with me.”

They followed the matron along a path that twisted and turned, finally arriving at a rock garden.
The matron must have activated some lever, causing the scenery to suddenly change.

Exquisite buildings, flowing water, the area occupied was vast, looking just like the scenery of a sect, but on a smaller scale.


“Wait here, honored guests.
The pavilion master will be right with you.” The matron led them to a hall and then retreated. 

Not a moment later, a red clothed man appeared.
He had a prominent nose and his lips were somewhat upturned.
His peach blossom eyes held a fake smile.
His appearance was elegant and romantic, but the expression in his eyes was desolate.
He was clearly a ruthless man.

“Hua Yan!” As soon as the man appeared, Ye Mochen was unable to hold back because he saw Hua Yan standing behind the man.

 

“Beauty, aren’t you going to answer your lover? Should I withdraw to give you some space?” Wu Ying’s elegance was really on show as he treated the woman he fancied with such gentleness.

“I’d be happier if you just let me go free.” Hua Yan was flabbergasted by this man, and was pretty sure his brain wasn’t firing on all cylinders. 

“I’m afraid that won’t work.” Wu Ying rejected Hua Yan’s request with a gentle expression on his face.

“It appears that the Pavilion Master doesn’t intend to do business today.
In that case, I can only come back another day.” Gu Feng saw the time was almost right, and spoke in an unhurried manner.

“If you’ve come to discuss exchanging this beauty for another, I apologize.
It’s not possible.” Wu Ying seemed to just have noticed Gu Feng, and observed how Gu Feng and Su Mujin’s hands were clasped, his eyes brightening for a second.

“Who said anything about a substitute? I have some business to discuss with the Pavilion Master.
Let me invite you to dinner and we can converse about it,” Gu Feng suggested. 

“Come, take guest’s friends to refresh themselves.” As soon as Wu Ying called out, several black clad men appeared and escorted Su Mujin and his companions away.

Wu Ying looked in the direction they had left and didn’t come back to his senses for a long time.

“Cough, the people have left.
Don’t look any longer.
I’ve come to ask the pavilion master to buy some news.” Gu Feng cleared his throat, thinking that Wu Ying was watching Hua Yan.

I want to check on Taixu Sect Master’s daughter, Gu Yunxi, before she entered the sect.
I also want to know about the tools that the people at the top of this mural are holding.” Gu Feng spoke and transferred an image of the section of the mural directly to Wu Ying’s mind. 

Wu Ying looked and pondered for a while, then spoke “This information will be difficult to obtain and requires a lot of manpower .
.
.”

“As long as it can be uncovered, the price is no problem.”


“It’s a pleasure doing business with you!”

After settling on the specifics, Gu Feng handed over a deposit.
Wu Ying assured him that as soon as there was any news, he’d contact him. 

“Is your group heading to the Hundred Flowers Festival” Wu Yin inquired.

“That’s right.”

“You must be weary from the trip.
Why don’t you stay at my place to rest and refresh yourselves before heading out.”

“In that case, how can I refuse?” Gu Feng hadn’t forgotten that the purpose of this trip was also to rescue someone. 

Two flowers bloomed on the same branch.

Su Mujin had just left the great hall when he transmitted a message, “Hua Yan, for the next couple of days, do your best to show your interest in Wu Ying.
If you want to leave him you must do as I say.
Don’t ask why.”

“Okay.” Although she was confused, if she could escape by flirting with Wu Ying, she was game.

 

That evening Wu Ying held an impromptu banquet to welcome the guests.
Gu Feng was suspicious.
In his past life he had never seen the man act so enthusiastic. Could it be that he treated his guests better?

“Pavilion Master, I offer you a toast.” Hua Yan gazed at Wu Ying with eyes as soft as water, taking what Su Mujin had advised and running with it. 

“Hua Yan, what are you doing? Am I dead to you?” Ye Mochen indignantly slapped the table, playing along with the charade.

“Mochen, don’t be angry.
The pavilion master has treated me well the past couple days.
We ought to show our gratitude.” After saying this, Hua Yan shot a shy glance over toward Wu Ying.

Wu Ying’s eyes were full of mockery but he still responded with grace.
“If you like it, that’s good.
I heard Gu xiong say that you’re headed to the Hundred Flowers Festival.
I won’t keep you.
In two days time, you can all go together.”

If it was before, he might still be interested in Hua Yan, but now he had a new target.
