"To live... Together with me?" the golden-eyed youth inquired: did he perhaps misinterpret what he had just heard? Was this body he had taken over mentally impaired by any chance?

"Yes! Sorry if the sudden news startled you, it was decided on the spot by Senior Lao and this Disciple went along with it!" Xiao Li giggled.

Startled? Cheng Hao had indeed been startled. But it was the kind of being startled that made people want to choke certain old men on the spot: what the was that old fart thinking? Was he a shotacon planning to build an harem of unsuspecting eight-year olds?

Sigh... seriously, what the hell is going on in this world? Why would a declining Clan still recovering from a century of war, send one of its precious Young Masters almost six months' worth of travelling away?

The golden-eyed youth scratched his head. A thought, or more accurately, a memory from his past life, had suddenly flashed across his mind...

...

Back then, the him from his past life had been just a little older than forty. Although he was clearly much older than what he looked like, he had stop aging after he had broken through the Ageless Realm at the staggering age of twenty-four. As such, his appearance had staled at that of a handsome young man with black hair and breathtaking blue eyes.

He had just assassinated a Patriarch of a certain Family. The assassination attempt had been akin to a suicide mission so, as per usual, he had chosen to undertake the ordeal himself and had infiltrated the mansion before his comrades could stop him. The Patriarch was assassinated, but the blue-eyed youth had been gravely wounded in the process and couldn't retreat to headquarters. To avoid his pursuers, he had even gone as far as running away to another plane of existence, but was followed and was ultimately cornered after more than a week of playing hide and seek. Although his opponents were many times weaker than his usual self, at the time his wounds had prevented him from using the full extent of his power. Furthermore, having to run away he could spare no energy to heal himself, so when he finally came face to face with his enraged chasers, he barely had any strength left to stand. Just as he was about to be killed, the figure of a purple-haired youth with emerald eyes had suddenly appeared! His strength was amongst the youngest and weakest in Cheng Hao's band of ragtag rebels, being still in his late teens and still not in the Ageless Realm. And yet, for two days and three nights, this 'weakling' had stood his ground against dozens, hundreds of enemies many times stronger than him, long enough for Cheng Hao's past self to recover and slaughter the remaining enemies himself.

"Why would you go so far? Just how..." the, blue-eyed youth had asked in astonishment, as he held in his hands an injured, purple-haired, green-eyed youth. "How did you find me?"

"What do you mean 'why' and 'how', boss?" had replied the wounded man while smiling blissfully. "I'm your number one stalker and self-proclaimed number one fan, boss, I have your presence memorized by every single cell in my body! Of course I'd know where you'd be! I knew you'd be here, in this strange-looking gorge, in this strange-looking mountain range! Sorry if I was late, it took me a while to catch up to you, you run really fast! I will always find you and save you, wherever you might be, boss! Just leave it to me, boss!""

At the time, after wandering on the meaning behind the words of this youth that called him boss so enthusiastically, he had ultimately disregarded that statement from the wounded youth and concluded that him being found had been a fruit of luck, and nothing more.

...

Years later, the now forty-five-something-years-old man had fallen to a scheme of some shrewd cultivators, had his strength sealed, and was thus caught and soon to be executed. As he was about to be killed, the purple-haired youth, without any regards for the countless injuries he received, had charged amongst countless enemy cultivators and freed him at the very last moment, before falling unconscious from the pain. Having had the shackles removed and seeing the wounded figure of the young man laying on the ground, the blue-eyed youth slaughtered everybody present in a fit of rage.

The green-eyed youth: "See boss? I knew you'd be here, in this strange-looking hall, in this strange-looking castle! Sorry if I was late, it took me a while to get past the guards outside! I will always find you and save you, wherever you might be, boss! Just leave it to me, boss!"

But... wasn't this location decided on the spot? Barely half an hour had passed since the time he was caught until the executioner was ready to go. And yet, this brat found him? Could it be... No! Once again, he had been 'lucky'. Next time, he might not have such luck and he would truly die! He will have to be more careful in the future...

...

Again. He had let down his guard again. He had explored underwater ruin full of defensive measures alone, without a guide, and had carelessly been caught into a sealing formation. What exactly did he expect? Now, trapped into a neigh-Indestructible Seal that could neither be seen nor sensed, and all that while in an ancient Tomb at the depths of an ocean, the blue-eyed ma

Xu Ling! The man with cold yet breathtakingly beautiful blue eyes that had eradicated countless Clans while still only in the Ageless Realm, stepped into the Immortal Realm at sixty-one, and at eighty-five years old was the head of an army of millions of beasts of all kinds and shapes!

Forty years ago, Xiao Lan had met a wounded Xu Ling and protected him with his own body, lowering himself to using his nails and teeth and coughing blood with every breath all to save the blue-eyed youth from impending death. He had repeatedly done so again and again for the following four decades, and never asked for anything in return. Now, on that faithful day forty years later, that same person he had so vehemently called "Boss" had picked him up, and placed him atop one of the tallest thrones that there could be! A friendship that spanned decades that would last for more than a century and even up to the final day, the day he finally faced Tian head on, Xiao Lan had always stayed by Xu Ling's side, always being there when needed and somehow always aware of his position at any given time.

A thousand years have now passed however. Xu Ling had reincarnated in the body of a young child only eight years old in a low-profile plane of existence and had spent six months to get used to the unfamiliar body and explore that region of the world he had reincarnated into. Nobody was aware of his existence, he only caught the unsuspecting Goldy that was residing in another plane of existence through a certain method... And yet, six months ago, someone had ordered the current Young Master of his family, a descendant, possibly the only descendant, to travel to abovementioned low-key plane of existence without so much of an explanation. Coincidence? Luck?

Cheng Hao smiled and a single tear rolled down his cheek under the curious gaze of the young Xiao Li.

He almost seemed to hear the energetic voice in his head... That voice that had been so annoying, so mysterious, at first, and that with time had become the most pleasant of melodies, one that soothed the soul:

"See boss? I knew you'd be here, in this strange-looking Sect, in this strange-looking Plane of Existence! Sorry if I was late, it took me a while to reach this place as it was simply too far! I hope you'll forgive me. I will always find you and save you, wherever you might be, boss! Just leave it to me, boss! And even if I can't be there in person, my descendant by blood will! Eheheh, Boss, ain't I awesome? You think I'll also get a cool nickname someday? Something as eye-catching as Evil Saint? That would be nice..."

"Self-proclaimed number one fan of mine, you used to say?" Drop. Drop. Drop. One after another, a stream of hot tears began to roll down the golden-eyed child's cheeks. Cheng Hao looked up towards the sky with a complicated gaze. Then, he smiled. It was a smile that was both painful and relieving at the same time, and yet communicated extreme longing. "Idiot. It's me who should be saying that about you, you little stalker!"

Cheng Hao wiped away the tears with the long sleeves of his robes and then pointed to the sky, a menacing expression on his face. "You truly do deserve a super-cool nickname. If we have the chance to meet again... I'll make one up just for you! So don't you dare die on me before I do just that!"

"Now then..." Cheng Hao smiled and grabbed Xiao Li's shoulder so firmly that the other almost let out a scream. "Shall we take a look at what's up with this nephew of yours that you so kindly sent me?"
