Yang Chen thought about it and finally remembered Cai Ning’s master, Tang Luyi warned him that he had to wait until Cai Ning reached the Xiantian stage before he could take away her virginity.

Yang Chen himself had forgotten about it. He certainly did not think she would remember.

Cai Ning realized she had overthought things when she noticed his facial expression!

She was so embarrassed that she turned around to avoid his gaze. Her heart was thumping so fast it was as if she was talking to her crush.

Yang Chen chuckled while walking forward to wrap his arms around her slender waist. With a gentle voice, he said, “You don’t have to be shy around me.”

“I...I didn’t mean it that way…” Cai Ning tried to justify herself.

“I know.” Yang Chen played along. “I’m here today to pass you the pills. As for everything else, let’s just go along the flow. You look like you’re about to burst into tears.”

“No!” Cai Ning felt extremely humiliated that she turned around and rebutted him with rosy cheeks. “I won’t cry!”

Yang Chen thought her serious face looked really cute and he couldn’t hold his laughter anymore.

Cai Ning became more ashamed. “You...don’t laugh! Don’t you dare laugh at me!”

Yang Chen spun her around and cupped her cheeks to peck her lips!


Cai Ning widened her eyes in shock, trembling from the surprise. 

Yang Chen sucked her lips for ten whole seconds before ending the kiss with a satisfied expression.

He chuckled when he saw her dazed and flushed face. “Alright, get onto the bed. It’s time to get started.”

Cai Ning was completely taken aback by the change of events and she nodded meekly before walking to her bed.

After taking some time to calm down, Cai Ning recovered to her normal state.

Yang Chen didn't really need to guide her since she was familiar with the theory and practices of cultivation.

He only needed to wait for the effects to take place and watch over her as she absorbed the energy.

The Bodhi pill had a rather apparent effect on her since she had just entered the Xiantian stage not long ago.

For Cai Ning, rich spiritual energy like this could cause her Xiantian True Qi to expand and solidify quickly in her Dantian.

Yang Chen did a rough estimation and he realized that Cai Ning could enter the Xiantian Full Cycle stage by consuming two Bodhi pills.

This showed that compared to possessing artifacts, medicinal pills were much more important to cultivators with a lower cultivation base!

Unfortunately, he only owned low-class pills. For someone like him who was in the Tribulation Passing stage, a high-class pill wouldn’t be effective for him, let alone the Bodhi pills. Only the legend-class pills would be of any help to him.

However, he still had to get more pills to help speed up his lovers’ cultivation.

From the looks of it, Bodhi pills could increase their cultivation base up to the final phase of the Xiantian stage. As for Rose and Cai Ning, they should be able to reach the Full Cycle easily.

They would probably enter the Xiantian at different times since it also depended on their talents. As for the Soul Forming stage, Yang Chen was willing to play by the ear since it wasn’t easy to enter.

Anyhow, he couldn’t possibly wait till they were in the Soul Forming stage before getting the pills. It would be too late by then.

Right when Cai Ning became completely focused on her cultivation, Yang Chen left another Bodhi pill in front of her and left the room without making any noise.

He was sure that with her talent, her True Qi should be sufficient to enter the Full Cycle stage by tonight.

Yang Chen checked his surroundings and made sure no one was around before teleporting to his car.

There were barely any stars in the sky when he made his way home under the full moon.

Back in their room in the Yang mansion, Lin Ruoxi had just finished her work and was stretching her body while remaining seated in front of the desk.

She looked up at the clock and realized that it was already 1 o’clock.

“Damn it, Yang Chen, I knew you wouldn’t hold it in. I’m not going to wait for you anymore.”

Lin Ruoxi mumbled and cursed at him, feeling the heaviness in her heart.

As time passed, she became immune to the existence of his lovers.

However, she did not intend for this to happen!

Lin Ruoxi knew she was a coward. She didn’t have the guts, nor did she want to leave him. After all their quarrels and struggles, she still had deep feelings for him. It felt as if she was trapped in quicksand. The harder she struggled, the deeper she sank.

She could no longer retract her feelings and he had taken over her body too.

Somehow, by being with him, she could experience everything a woman ever wanted, except loyalty!

She resented and loved him at the same time.

However, a third person in marriage was a conflict that could never be resolved. She could forget about it but every time she thought about it, it gave her serious headaches.

Their agreement was supposed to end next March but she knew she wouldn’t be able to change anything.

Yang Chen wouldn’t leave the other women for her and she wouldn’t leave him because of them.

In the end, this would turn into an unresolvable conflict.

Lin Ruoxi couldn’t understand how women in Middle Eastern countries handled polygamy. How did they stand to be near each other all the time?

Her mind was filled with random thoughts and was interrupted by knocking sounds at the door.

Lin Ruoxi was startled at first but she brightened up eventually as she made her way to the door.

Her emotions quickly turned into astonishment when she realized who was by the door.

“Yang Chen...he isn’t back yet?”

Yang Pojun was standing in front of the door with a smile!

Lin Ruoxi was taken aback and she was tongue-tied for a while. With a nod, she answered him, 

“Not yet.”

“Were you working?”

“Yea...I had to settle my work. I just finished it.”

“Aren’t you tired?”

“I...it’s not that bad.” Lin Ruoxi thought their conversation sounded weird.

Yang Pojun seemed very friendly. “Don’t be nervous. I didn’t come here to look for him. I came to talk to you?”


“Come out and take a walk with me. I’m just a father-in-law wishing to speak to my daughter-in-law.”

Father-in-law and daughter-in-law?!

Lin Ruoxi doubted her own hearing for a second. It was impossible for Yang Pojun to say things like this.

Lin Ruoxi closed the door with a dazed expression before following Yang Pojun out to the backyard. The servants had mostly gone to rest so patrol guards would walk past them occasionally.

The backyard was so serene and chilly which made Lin Ruoxi regret not wearing a scarf. 

Yang Pojun walked in front of her with a flat expression. Out of nowhere, she started to speak.“I heard you took over Yu Lei International before graduating from university?”

Lin Ruoxi answered softly, having calmed down. “I finished my degree but not my postgraduate studies.”

“That’s fine. Nowadays a master’s degree is required to become a government official in a lot of places. You’re excellent. Even though I used to be in the military, I’ve always heard about your achievements which piqued my curiosity. I always wondered how a young female president managed to do so many things. I didn’t expect you to become part of our clan at our first meeting.”

Lin Ruoxi was overwhelmed by his compliments, not sure how she should answer him.

Yang Pojun didn’t give her a chance to voice out and he continued to talk. “I never really got the chance to talk to you because of my relationship with Yang Chen. I know I did a lot of unpleasant things to the both of you and I’m sure that you’re looking down on me secretly.”

Lin Ruoxi shook her head hurriedly when she heard that. “No, I don’t think about you that way.”

Yang Pojun turned around and he chuckled when he saw her serious yet anxious expression. “I said you don’t have to be nervous. I believe you. You’re not Yang Chen. He’s always joking around.”

Lin Ruoxi was kind of weirded out by his smile but at the same time, she felt more relaxed. “He’s not always like that. He’s sometimes really serious too.”

Yang Pojun squinted his eyes and smiled, “Can I ask you something?”

“Please do.”

“I would’ve never associated you with Yang Chen before this. You’re such an excellent person. Why would you marry a flippant person like him?” The look of confusion on his face was so strong it was as if he had been troubled with this question for a long time.
