Cultivation Online - Chapter 498 - Grow Up
"Alright, I have to return to the hospital now. You can stay here if you like, Xiuying." Doctor Wang said after chatting with Yuan for about half an hour.
"See you later, Doctor Wang," Yuan said to him.
"Yes, I will see you later. Once again, I am so glad that you've finally recovered. Let's hope it only gets better from this point."
Doctor Wang left the place, but Wang Xiuying decided to stay there for a little longer.
"I still can't believe…" Wang Xiuying mumbled in a low voice as she watched Yuan practice his movements by walking around the house.
"Hmm? How come you know where to go?" Wang Xiuying quickly realized this, as she wasn't aware that he could use divine sense in the real world.
"It's divine sense," Meixiu explained to her.
"Wait… That divine sense?" Wang Xiuying's eyes widened with shock.
Although Meifeng didn't know the significance behind divine sense, Wang Xiuying did.
"Yes." Meixiu nodded.
Once Yuan was comfortable with his movements, he started doing exercises such as sit-ups and push-ups.
Since he was a peak Spirit Warrior, strength and endurance weren't an issue for Yuan. It was only a matter of his form.
Ten push-ups… twenty… thirty…
Fifty… one hundred…
Yuan managed to achieve a hundred push-ups and sit-ups without any breaks and still had plenty of energy left by the end of it.
Meanwhile, Wang Xiuying called a moving company to move her piano to their apartment.
"Alright, it's about time for me to leave. The piano should be here tomorrow afternoon," she said to them afterward.
And she continued, "I will also be here tomorrow to listen to you playing."
"Okay. See you later." Yuan said.
Yuan then proceeded to continue his exercise, working up a good sweat.
"I am going to take a shower," Yuan said to them.
"Do you need help?" Meixiu subconsciously asked him since she was used to it.
"It's okay, I got it," Yuan said before entering the bathroom.
Once Yuan entered the bathroom, Meifeng looked at Meixiu with a mocking smile, "Looks like you're no longer needed now that he's recovered."
"Nonsense." Meixiu quickly responded.
"Oh? Then what can you do for him now that he can do everything himself?"
"I-I can still do the housework such as cleaning and cooking," she said.
"So basically a housewife? Are you going to assist him in the bed too?" Meifeng suddenly asked.
Meixiu immediately recalled their last shower together and blushed.
Of course, Meifeng was unaware of this, and she continued, "You know it's going to happen sooner or later. The Young Master may still be an innocent child now, but he will eventually mature and experience actual puberty."
"Once that happens, he will need a real woman to look after him. If you're not going to stand up for that position, someone will take him away from you, and you will truly no longer be needed at that time."
"I hope you still remember what I taught you."
Meixiu stared at Meifeng with a deep frown. As much as she wanted to refute Meifeng's claims, she knew that everything her mother said was the truth.
"You're already an adult, yet you haven't matured yet. Grow up, Meixiu. You have the perfect opportunity to establish your position right now. If you let this chance get away, you'll regret it when the Young Master returns to his ordinary life and becomes surrounded by even more women."
"If I were in your shoes, I would already be pregnant by now."
Meixiu was left speechless by her mother's last sentence.
Meanwhile, somewhere in the city, Mister Johnson stood before the two cultivators that had abandoned their mission with a deep frown on his face.
"Four grown men with over 10 years of military experience, yet you somehow lost to a little girl half your age, even running away with your tails tucked between your legs. Do you understand the word shame? This is what you get for underestimating Meixiu when I specifically warned you to not underestimate her."
Hearing Mister Johnson's lecture, the two cultivators didn't dare to utter a single word.
"Johnson… That bitch killed Scorpion and Hawk… Is there anything we can do to avenge them?"
Mister Johnson remained silent for a moment before speaking, "How can you be so sure that they're dead?"
"We watched that bitch snap Hawk's neck without mercy! There's no way he's still alive after that brutal strike!"
"Even Scorpion had his neck twisted in a weird angle by a single punch!"
Mister Johnson then said, "They are still alive."
"W-What? Really? How do you know that?"
"You think I don't have friends in the police force? They told me about the incident that had been marked as a robbery. Scorpion and Hawk had been taken to the hospital. They were on the verge of death when they arrived at the hospital, but they're not dead."
The other two released a sigh of relief after hearing that their comrades were still alive.
"I wouldn't relax now if I were you. They may be alive, but they're currently in custody. I will have to speak with my buddies if they don't want to go to jail." Mister Johnson said.
"What about the mission?" One of them asked.
"The mission is a failure. Now that you've caused a commotion, we can no longer continue, or we will risk being investigated. I'm not particularly worried about being investigated, but our clients, the Yu Family, definitely won't be happy if they're investigated, so we can only wait until things calm down for now."
"W-What about our pay?"
Mister Johnson sneered and said, "You still have the guts to ask for money after your embarrassing failure?! I wouldn't be surprised if the Yu Family asks for compensation for this failure! If that happens, it's coming out of your accounts!"
"What?! No way!"
After dealing with the two idiots, Mister Johnson had to call the Yu Family to let them know the result of the mission, which was a complete failure.
Obviously, the Yu Family wasn't happy when they heard this news, and they immediately demanded a full refund.
