Cultivation Online - Chapter 1001 - Not Ready
Chapter 1001 – Not Ready
The following morning during breakfast, Li Jinxi asked, “Yuan, now that you’re back, are we going to start ascending to the next realm?”
“Yes, but I want to wait a few more days just in case anything happens. Once I start ascending, I will be staying in Cultivation Online until I finish all of the trials, so I want to make sure that nothing will distract me from it.” He nodded.
“I don’t think you need to worry. If anything happens, we’ll be able to do something about it. We’re here for you, after all. You can rely on us.” Wang Ming suddenly said.
Yuan pondered for a moment before nodding his head, “You’re right. I should rely on you guys more.”
“All right, we’re going to ascend tonight. Make sure you’re prepared by then.”
“Okay.” The members ascending with him nodded.
“Young Master, may I have some of your time? I have something to ask you.” Meifeng asked him after breakfast.
“Sure. Where do you want to talk?”
“We can do it in my room,” she said.
Yuan nodded and followed Meifeng to her room.
After preparing some tea and serving it to him, Meifeng sat down before him.
“I’m ready when you are, Miss Meifeng.” Yuan said to her.
“Thank you, Young Master. But to be honest, this isn’t that serious, and the topic might not be what you expect.”
Yuan raised an eyebrow as he wondered what she wanted to tell him.
After taking a deep breath, Meifeng spoke with a serious look on her face, “Young Master, what do you think about having a child with my daughter?”
Yuan was sipping his tea when Meifeng started speaking.
After hearing her question, he nearly spat out the tea in his mouth.
“A-A child with Meixiu? Where did this come from?” He asked her a moment later.
“As her mother, it’s only natural for me to think about these things now that she’s found herself the perfect partner. And to be completely honest with you, Young Master, I also want to see some grandchildren.”
“I-I don’t know what to tell you, Miss Meifeng… This is not something I can decide on. Furthermore, we don’t have the time to take care of a baby, not to mention that things will only get busier as we get closer to unveiling the truth behind Cultivation Online and Earth.”
“If you’re worried about not having enough time, you don’t need to worry because I can take care of the baby and do my work at the same time. I’ve already done so with both Meixiu and you, after all.”
“Even if you say that… Have you spoken to Meixiu about this?” Yuan asked.
“What’s her answer?”
“She said that she’s not ready.”
“If she’s not ready then there’s nothing I can do. I won’t force her to have a child with me if she isn’t ready to have one.” Yuan shook his head.
“I know, and I am not asking you to do so. However, if you ever feel like having a child with Meixiu, you will most likely have to be the one to convince her. Knowing her, she’s probably waiting for you to approach her.”
“I see… Then to tell you the truth, I also think I am not ready to have any children. I am still young, and there are many problems in my life that I need to sort out first before I can even start thinking about bringing another life to this world.”
Meifeng closed her eyes and remained silent for a couple of moments before sighing, “Since the Young Master has spoken, I won’t bother you with this matter anymore. Though, I would like to ask, how is your relationship with Chu Liuxiang? Judging by what I’ve seen from her, she seems like the type of girl to want a family as soon as possible.”
Yuan smiled and said, “As expected of you, Miss Meifeng. Your eyes are as sharp as ever. Indeed, Lulu’s dream is to have her own family. However, she hasn’t asked me to do anything yet. She’s also probably waiting for me to approach her, but who knows. She’s sometimes very unpredictable.”
“I understand. And I apologize for wasting your time with my little nonsense… Ever since Meixiu left with you, I have been thinking about having grandchildren, even though it’s never happened before.”
“Don’t worry about it, Miss Meifeng.”
“Also, you should stop calling me that. You’re my Master now. You can just call me Meifeng.”
“I can call you Meifeng, but you’ll also have to drop the formalities and call me Yuan.”
“That’s not fair, Young Master…”
“Please. You’re Meixiu’s mother. It would be weird for my future mother-in-law to address me as Young Master.”
Meifeng released a defeated sigh.
“I understand. If that’s what you want, I shall obey… Yuan.”
“Thank you, Meifeng.” He smiled.
For the rest of the day, Yuan would work on his little treasure hunt. Once he made all preparations, he made his way to the Stairway to Heaven and waited for the others to show up.
When Meixiu, Chu Liuxiang, and Li Jinxi entered Cultivation Online, they all approached the Stairway to Heaven.
“We’re finally going to ascend. I’ve been waiting for this moment!” Chu Liuxiang said in an excited voice as they approached the man handing out the badges.
“I’d like four badges.” Yuan said to the man, who immediately raised his eyebrows.
“Four? Only one of you can challenge the Stairway to Heaven at a time,” he said.
“I know. I am going to be the only one challenging the Stairway to Heaven. They’re just coming along with me.” Yuan smiled.
“Seriously? Are you aware that—”
“Yes, I am aware that by doing so, it would make the trials much harder, and I am prepared for it.”
The man looked at the three beauties standing behind him and sighed in a low voice, “Statistically speaking, men that focus too much on women will never go far in the cultivation world. However, this is your life, not mine.”
Once the old man handed four badges to Yuan, they immediately began climbing the staircase that led to the Stairway to Heaven.
