Cultivation Online - Chapter 555 - You Are The Problem
Once they were outside, Sebastian tilted his head to look at the clear blue sky for a silent minute before turning to look at Yuan.
Sensing Yuan's nervousness, Sebastian showed a friendly smile and said, "There's no need to be so tense. I just wanted to thank you."
"Thank me? For what?" Yuan raised his eyebrows.
"For accepting the Young Lady despite being separated for so long. I don't know how much she told you about the Chu Family, but she lived a very reclusive and boring life there with barely any interactions."
"Besides her family, myself, and a few other instructors, the Young Lady doesn't have any friends, so she was always bored, and she would always complain to me."
"Of course, there isn't anything I could do for her except listen to her complaints."
"This is my first time seeing the Young Lady so excited and blissful, and I am thanking you for that.."
"You don't have to thank me for that. I have known Lulu ever since the orphanage, and we were the closest thing to a family back then. No matter how much time has passed, I will always value her as such." Yuan said to him.
Sebastian nodded, and then he asked, "Do you have any plans for the future?"
"That's a very vague question…"
"I kept it vague on purpose since I don't know anything about you besides the fact that you're Player Yuan and that you're the Young Lady's childhood friend. What do you see yourself doing in the future?"
"Are you going to continue living like this, doing whatever you please, or do you intend on doing something big like standing at the top of the world? Maybe you will even start a family and settle down somewhere in the world."
"I can't tell you anything since I don't know what I want to do myself. I have only recently regained my ability to move, so not long ago, I didn't even have the luxury of deciding what I want to do, since there's literally nothing I can do in that state."
"Fair enough." Sebastian nodded.
"Then allow me to ask you this… Where do you see yourself with the Young Lady in the future?"
"With Lulu? I hope we can continue being close to each other, I guess, but that will also depend on what she wants to do with her life."
Sebastian remained silent for a moment before speaking, "You see, the Young Lady is a very important individual within the Chu Family, and being one of the most powerful families in the world, the Young Lady will definitely become a grand figure in the world."
"The Masters— her parents haven't decided on what they want to do with her after she finished her training, hence why they allowed her to do as she pleases for now. However, once they have come to a conclusion, they will ask her to return to the family."
"Maybe they will make her take over the family, or maybe they will send her to another family through marriage. We won't know until that day comes. However, regardless of what her parents want the Young Lady to do, there will be a problem."
"And that problem is you, Young Master Yuan."
"Huh? Why would I be a problem?" Yuan asked, as he was truly puzzled.
"You're too important to the Young Lady. I dare even say that you're more important to the Young Lady than the Chu Family is to her, so if she has to pick between you or the family, she will most definitely pick you— that is what I believe after seeing you two together for less than a day."
Sebastian's words confused Yuan even further.
"Why does she have to pick between me and her family?"
"As I'd said, the Young Lady's freedom is only temporary. Once she has to return to the family, she will most likely lose that freedom again and return to being alone or live with another family, which means that she will no longer be able to see you again, and the Young Lady won't accept that, so she might decide to leave the family, which will cause many problems."
Yuan was speechless. Why must a family become more complicated the more powerful they become? Why would they take away Chu Liuxiang's freedom? Why won't she be able to see him again? He cannot see how this would benefit anyone.
Sebastian then continued, "Therefore, you must make a decision. If you want to stay with the Young Lady, then you should prepare yourself for the future and become more influential so that you can affect even the Chu Family. You may be a little famous right now, but it's not nearly enough to truly affect the world and those that stand at the top."
"However, if you don't intend on doing that, then I suggest you separate from the Young Lady as soon as possible so that neither of you gets hurt, especially since the longer you're together, the more difficult it will be for you two when you have to separate."
"You must also understand that I am not threatening you right now, Young Master Yuan. In fact, I am on the Young Lady's side, as I have been ever since I was assigned to take care of her. I just want you to be aware of the Young Lady's situation, and I don't want her to experience any grievances."
"I have been with the Chu Family for nearly my entire life, so I know how they operate very well. Although there is no doubt that they care deeply for the Young Lady, it is also a fact that she was adopted, so she isn't truly part of the Chu Family. Even if they cannot benefit from her, they won't just throw her away, as they have sacrificed too many resources for her."
After a moment of silence, Yuan said, "I don't know what to say or think of this information…"
"Don't worry, you have plenty of time to think and come to a conclusion, but don't take too long since the Chu Family is sometimes very unpredictable. Anyways, it was nice talking with you, Young Master Yuan. If you have any questions, I will always be available." Sebastian said to him.
