Chapter 159: Marriage
After December, it was the new year.
Godfiends visited each other as a new year tradition. It was a joyous occasion. In fact, many Godfiends didn’t care about the new year festivities, but the Godfiends stationed at city passes were different. They might die in battle at any time, so they paid special attention to New Year’s Eve. After 800 years, Godfiends at city passes had made it a tradition to visit each other and celebrate the new year together.
“It’s really lively during the new year.” Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue walked along North River Pass’s streets. Many hawkers had set up stalls along the streets, and many people were performing acrobatics. People wore their best clothes as they celebrated.
“North River Pass’s population is slightly lower than Eastcalm Prefecture, but the atmosphere during the new year is more vibrant,” praised Meng Chuan with a smile.
The two walked alongside each other.
“Ah Chuan, we’ve been here for more than a year. When do you plan on getting married?” asked Liu Qiyue softly, her face slightly red.
Meng Chuan was stunned. How could Qiyue take the initiative to ask such matters? Even Meng Chuan felt that he was silly for forgetting!
“Qiyue, didn’t we agree on this?” Meng Chuan immediately held Liu Qiyue’s hand and coaxed her. “After we gain a foothold in North River Pass, we can get married. We have fought two times in North River Pass, and we achieved great victories both times. Especially in the last battle, I killed a few demon monarchs like Demon Monarch Lion. Now, who doesn’t have faith in me? Since we have a stable footing, we can get married immediately.”
“Get married immediately?” Liu Qiyue’s face turned scarlet. She immediately said, “I’m not that anxious.”
“I am. How can I not be anxious?” Meng Chuan shook his head. “We have to write a letter to Dad and the rest immediately. We’ll let Dad and the rest set a specific date. After all, we have to discuss such important matters with Dad and the others.”
Liu Qiyue smiled and nodded. “Alright, let’s discuss it with Dad and the rest.” She was feeling sweet right now.
She was finally getting married to Ah Chuan!
Meng Chuan and Liu Qiyue sent a letter to Eastcalm Prefecture. Meng Dajiang and Liu Yebai were overjoyed when they received the letter. They had been waiting for this day for a long time. However, it was not appropriate for them to rush the couple since they were defending North River Pass from demons.
Soon, the date was set. It was to happen on 26th January, a particularly joyous day for marriage based on the almanac.
Meng Chuan was alone on the bed.
“Today is the day of my wedding.” Meng Chuan smiled when he saw no one beside him. This was because Liu Qiyue had moved to another manor last night, where Liu Yebai stayed temporarily.
Meng Chuan had requested a North River Pass Godfiend to bring his family from Eastcalm Prefecture on a giant bird. He and Liu Qiyue were extremely important to North River Pass, so they couldn’t leave as they pleased. It wasn’t a big deal for ordinary Godfiends to leave temporarily. North River Pass was 6,500 kilometers away from Eastcalm Prefecture. It was too far. Many guests couldn’t come by themselves. They had to be escorted via flying mounts.
The North River Pass’s flying mount was a third Firmament demon monarch. After being controlled by Archean Mountain completely, it was very loyal! It was large, and it had a wingspan of over 100 feet. It had a very wide back, allowing Meng Dajian, Liu Yebai, several Meng family members, Liu Yebai’s good friend, and Ge Yu—Mirror Lake Dao Academy’s dean—to ride upon it.
“Chuan’er, hurry up. There’s still a lot of things to do today.” The fat Meng Dajiang was very anxious. He dragged Meng Chuan to a group of women.
Meng Chuan smiled and obediently put on his groom’s gown. The women put some makeup on him, to which he said, “Don’t make it too thick.”
“Don’t worry, Lord Meng. Don’t worry.”
“Lord Meng, your skin is very good. You’re very handsome.”
The women were extremely excited. This was the first time they were involved in a marriage between two Godfiends.
The groom wore a white silk robe, but the outer robe was much more complicated. There were many tassels and accessories. Godfiends usually wore simple robes. If not, a robe with dozens of tassels and accessories would take them too long to wear during wartime. Now, Meng Chuan wasn’t in a rush. He allowed the women to dress him. He even wore red boots.
Even his hair was combed backward neatly. There wasn’t a single strand of messy hair at his forehead, and he wore a golden crown. This was the first time Meng Chuan had worn a crown since he was young.
After spending more than an hour, the women finally stopped in satisfaction.
Meng Chuan walked out of the house. There were quite a number of people in the yard outside. Zhang Yunhu, Fan Cheng, the other Godfiends, the Meng family clansmen, Dean Ge Yu, and company waited outside.
“Color me surprised.” Fan Cheng was eating some snacks when he saw Meng Chuan walk out. His eyes widened immediately. “What a handsome young master.”
Meng Chuan gave him a warning look.
“Quite the red face, I must say. You are definitely covered in quite a bit of rouge.” Shi Xiu couldn’t help but laugh. He was amused.
“Good, good. It’s pretty good,” echoed Zhang Yunhu.
“I watched Meng Chuan, and Liu Qiyue grow up. Liu Qiyue often visited Mirror Lake Dao Academy to look for Meng Chuan,” said Ge Yu, the Meng family clansmen beside him. “I also watched them head to Archean Mountain together. Now that they are getting married, I’m very happy that I can attend their wedding. I’m glad my disciple still thinks of me as his master.”
“It’s not noon yet, and you’re already half drunk. Don’t drink too much. You can drink as much as you want tonight,” said a Meng family elder.
“Don’t worry, don’t worry. I’m not drunk at all. I’m still sober.” Ge Yu’s face was flushed red. He was a drunkard and loved alcohol. His joy today just made him drink more.
Meng Chuan chatted with everyone for a while.
“It’s time,” shouted Meng Dajiang immediately. “Chuan’er, hurry up. It’s time to receive the bride.”
“Receive the bride?” Meng Chuan immediately stood up.
“Lord Meng, come, come. Wear the red flower.” Three women ran over and tied a red flower to Meng Chuan’s chest. It added to the joyous vibes.
Meng Chuan obediently followed.
After a while, the wedding entourage set off. Meng Chuan rode a tall horse, and the entourage played music along the way. The sound of firecrackers filled the air, and many people on the streets were watching.
“Two Godfiends are getting married?”
“Is that Lord Meng who killed several demon monarchs?”
The people at North River Pass watched from afar as the groom rode on his horse.
To begin with, Meng Chuan was not bad-looking. He had condensed an Essence Soul and cultivated his body. Be it his looks or bearing, he was extraordinary. Many women couldn’t help but blush when they saw him. They thought to themselves, If they were to marry such a handsome young master, they would probably be smiling in their dreams. Perhaps only a female Godfiend was worthy of Lord Meng.
About 2.5 kilometers away from Meng Chuan’s residence was the largest restaurant in North River Pass, White Cloud Restaurant. Today, White Cloud Restaurant’s ninth floor had been booked.
On the restaurant’s top floor, a gray-robed elder stood guard outside the private room. There was only one person inside.
A cyan-robed woman stood inside the room. Her face was covered in a thin veil. She stood by the private room’s window and looked in the direction of Meng Chuan’s manor. Although she was over 2.5 kilometers away, she could clearly see Meng Dajiang watching everybody leave as he stood at the manor door. She also saw the good-looking youth riding a tall horse.
Dajiang, you’ve gained so much weight. The cyan-robed woman watched from afar. Chuan’er has also grown up. Her eyes were filled with tears.
