"Someone important? If you wanted to pretend that, you should've given him some decent clothes," The woman said sarcastically as she pointed towards Xu Ming.
Xu Ming looked down and realized that he was still wearing the same clothes that were burnt around the chest area after the fight.
He didn't get the opportunity to change clothes since Jay and Xin had been with him from the moment he woke up. All his spare clothes were in his storage as well.
"Aunt Xi, He's our friend. His clothes got in a situation like this because of a fight," Xin said but she noticed the look on Xu Ming's face and didn't disclose that he was a cultivator or who he was fighting.
"Sigh. You're the young miss of the Ling clan. At Least think before you make any random beggar your friend. Keeping that aside, What is he doing here? Why did you bring him inside our clan?" The woman further asked.
"We're taking him to meet our father," Xin replied.
The Woman was visibly surprised as she heard her words.
"Haa? Have you lost your intelligence? You're taking him to meet my brother? Don't you know that he's the master of this clan? What would happen to his reputation if any random kid was allowed to meet him?" She asked.
" Take him back. Give him a few copper coins and let him go. Don't make the things complicated for our clan," She further said.
"Ahh Aunt, Actually it was my father who asked us to bring him. Otherwise, why would I bring him here? I'd go now. Father must be waiting," Xin said.
She decided to lie since she didn't want to stretch things too much as she couldn't expose his ident.i.ty, but her plan made things even worse.
"Hmm? Do you think I'm stupid? You would lie to my face and I would believe it? Why would my brother ask to meet him!" The woman didn't believe her in the slightest and her tone turned even louder.
Quite a few servants of the clan, that were nearby, heard the commotion, and started looking at them.
"I'm not lying, Aunt," Xin insisted.
"Oh really? Come with me. Let's ask your father then," Xi said with a smile as she gestured to them to follow her. She turned back and started walking.
She stopped and looked back, but noticed that the kids hadn't moved an inch.
"Why are you not coming? Is it because you are lying? There's nothing to be ashamed of," She said with a grin.
"Come-on sister! Let's go as well. We're not lying after all," Jay couldn't bear the sarcastic tone and looked at Xin as he said. He had an idea in his mind.
"Ok," Xin agreed. She looked back at Xu Ming and gestured to him to come with her with a pleading look on her face.
They went to the Study of their father with their Aunt Xi.
Xi took the lead and knocked on the door of the Ling Clan's Clan Master.
"Brother? Can I come inside?" She let out.
"Come in. The door is open," A man's voice came from the inside.
Xi pushed the door open and entered the room with the others.
A man was sitting on a chair and reading a book. There were many shelves in the room that were filled with books.
The Man looked to be quite young. There are no wrinkles on his face, though his hair was white.
"Hmm? You all came together? Xin? Jay? When did you come back to the city?"The man let out in surprise as he saw them.
"We just came back, father," Xin replied with a smile.
"That's great. I'll talk to you later. Let me hear your aunt first," He said with a smile and s.h.i.+fted his focus back to the older woman in the room.
"You don't generally come to me like this. Did you need something?" The man looked at Xi and asked.
"It's nothing big. I just saw niece Xin bringing that beggar inside our clan. When I asked her about it, she told me that you invited him. I couldn't help but be curious as to why you would invite someone like him?" Xi asked him with a smirk on her face.
She was quite clear that he didn't invite that boy, but she couldn't tell him that she thought that his kids were liars. So she changed the form of her questions, while still conveying it.
"I called him?" The man looked visibly confused as he looked at his kids standing behind his sister. He could see Jay's pleading expressions.
"Hahaha, Yeah right. I called that kid to meet him. I had some personal reasons, but I can't talk about them. I'm really sorry Xi," The man started laughing as he lied to save the reputation of his kids. He didn't want to expose his kids in front of others.
"Oh? It's fine. I'll take my leave then," Xi looked visibly shocked as she heard her brother.
She was now feeling glad that she didn't accuse the kids in front of her brother as she was wrong.
She hurriedly left the room.
"So kids, Can you tell me who that kid is? And why did you lie to your aunt?" He asked with an amused smile on his face. He didn't look the least bit angry, he was just curious.
"I'm sorry father. We had to lie to Aunt since we couldn't expose his ident.i.ty," Xin said as she pointed towards Xu Ming.
The man was visibly stunned as he tried to understand the hidden meaning behind her words.
"You didn't want to expose his ident.i.ty? Who is he? What is his real ident.i.ty?" He asked with a frown.
"You'd be amazed when you know about it, father," Jay let out excitedly.
"He's an amazing cultivator! We found him when we were coming back to our kingdom. He is a brave warrior who bravely fought against a cultivator of an even sect and managed to kill him. I think he was harmed in the battle as well. That's why he was unconscious when we found him," Xin was the one who explained.
"Hmm? Do you have the clothes that the evil cultivator was wearing?" He asked.
He didn't doubt what he heard since he believed his kids.
"We brought the body as well. It's on the top of our carriage. We can send a servant to bring that here?" Xin informed him.
"Mu Gu should be standing outside. Tell him to bring it here," Their father told them.
Jay went outside and told the person about it before he came back.
Their father didn't say anything in the meanwhile though. Although he believed their kids, he felt like there might be a possibility that they mistakenly considered a random person to be an evil cultivator.
Real evil Cultivators weren't someone a kid who looked to be 9-10 years old could defeat after all.
In a few minutes, their servant came with something that was tied crudely in cloth.
He placed that in front of the clan master before he left.
The man stood up from his seat as he stepped towards the thing their servant brought. He opened the knot and uncovered it.
There were two halves of a body there that was cleanly cut in the middle.
"T-that's the dress of the Mighty Demon Sect!" The man exclaimed in shock as he took a step back.
"I can't believe you managed to kill a disciple of one of the strongest demonic sects, despite being so young!" The man said as he forgot about his dignity and hurriedly walked towards Xu Ming. He held his hands as he looked at him with a fawning look on his face.
