In this way, when the news came back, although Meng Ruyan would not say anything, she would definitely be a little shaken. She might even compare Lu Yuan with the other heavenly prides of the clan.
With this comparison, Xu Ze felt that Meng Ruyan and Lu Yuan’s relationship would definitely be affected and with time, Meng Ruyan might be able to completely forget Lu Yuan.
However, what Xu Ze did not know was that Meng Ruyan had been emphasizing her status as Lu Yuan’s practitioner partner in the clan mainly to reduce his troubles.
She had some fondness for Lu Yuan, but this feeling was by no means deeply ingrained or unforgettable.
After all, her relationship with Lu Yuan back then was more like they were using each other.
She relied on Lu Yuan to cultivate, and Lu Yuan relied on her to solve some problems.
Both sides were mutually beneficial and each took what they needed.
As Meng Ruyan entered the Upper Realm, Lu Yuan’s help to her was undoubtedly much smaller.
Even if Xu Ze did not do so, Meng Ruyan was prepared to clarify some matters with Lu Yuan after this trip to the Lower Realm.
In the past, she was still very weak and needed Lu Yuan, this tool, to help her.
However, things were different now. She no longer needed to rely on Lu Yuan for anything.
It was good for both of them to part on good terms.
Having Lu Yuan as a practitioner partner as a shield in the Upper Realm was already the last use Meng Ruyan had of him.
The only thing she was thinking about now was whether she could peacefully break up with Lu Yuan during this trip to the Lower Realm.
After all, if they could not break up peacefully, the cultivation technique she had cultivated back then would affect her mental state.
Once she got entangled with Lu Yuan too deeply and was unable to resolve this heart demon, it would definitely affect her future cultivation.
Unless it was absolutely necessary, Meng Ruyan was still not prepared to go to the final step of killing her heart demon.
After all, she now had many high-tier cultivation techniques from the Stellar Moon Cave. She no longer needed to cultivate the incomplete cultivation techniques that she had found back then.
The main reason for her actions was that Meng Ruyan had discovered a fact during her cultivation.
Lu Yuan, this tool man, seemed to have a more important position in her heart than she had imagined…
This wasn’t a good thing for Meng Ruyan, who was determined to transcend the tribulation, become immortal and find out the truth about her parents.
A practitioner partner…would only affect her cultivation speed!
Lower Realm, Black Jade Peak.
“Something’s wrong. This Fang Yu doesn’t seem like a rash person. He seems to have been instructed by someone to provoke me.”
Lu Yuan recalled Fang Yu’s calm expression when he left. He felt that this fellow was not some unreasonable person.
If this person’s personality was really as arrogant as he had shown before…
Then when he left, he should have looked at Lu Yuan with anger instead of ease.
Lu Yuan had a rough deduction after some analysis.
Perhaps Fang Yu’s strange behavior was due to his dear senior sister.
At this moment, Lu Yuan also found out about Meng Ruyan’s situation in the Stellar Moon Cave through Xu Ziyu and Xu Zile.
Although Lu Yuan didn’t know about the situation of the reformist fraction and the conservative fraction, he knew about Meng Ruyan’s reputation in the Stellar Moon Cave. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that she was the goddess of many male fox demons in the Stellar Moon Cave.
Thinking of this, Lu Yuan speechlessly patted his forehead.
Alright, there must be a bootlicker who was prepared to take this opportunity to teach him a lesson.
What a femme fatale…
Wait a minute, if his interaction with Meng Ruyan was already like this, would Xu Wan’er, who had the talent to topple cities, bring him similar trouble?
