Taoist Master and the Cat - Chapter 252
However, if they went further, reaching the borders of villages and towns shrouded in the incense of Qingxu Temple, many people would recognize him.
When Xie Jingyuan rubbed Su Miaomiao’s head through his clothes, a round white cat’s head poked out lazily.
Xie Jingyuan explained, “You and I being like this is inappropriate in public.”
He was a big man, if he had the cat on his shoulder, the people would only laugh at him for liking the cat too much. But if he had the cat close to his chest, the people may suspect that he had some special hobbies.
Su Miaomiao met his persistent eyes, snorted, then crawled out obediently, and nestled on his left shoulder.
While walking, Xie Jingyuan reminded her in a low voice what she should pay attention to in the future.
“Don’t change into a human form outside my room. If the common people know that you are a demon, it may cause unnecessary trouble.”
The cat’s body was flexible, it could run fast and climb high, and it was easier to stick to the Taoist master. Except for some special occasions, Su Miaomiao preferred to keep her original form.
“No licking of any part of me outside my room, not even in your original form.”
Xie Jingyuan quickly ended the topic, “I will tell the two uncles about our relationship between you. For the rest, except for Xu Shou and Gu Jialing, you should not tell other people or demons. When discussing this with Xu Shou and the others, don’t let other people or demons hear it, and don’t mention any intimacy between you and me, including holding hands, kissing or even taking a bath together.”
Su Miaomiao agreed one by one. She was a cat, not a bird, and she didn’t like to chat with anyone too much.
She was more concerned about one thing, “Why do you have to tell the two uncles?”
In other Taoist temples, there had also been examples of Taoist masters secretly marrying demons. Once discovered by fellow sects, in light cases they may be expelled from Taoist temples, in severe cases they would be executed.
Therefore, even if Xie Jingyuan didn’t give so many instructions, Su Miaomiao knew that the matter between her and him should be kept secret, so as not to spread it to the ears of other Taoist masters who would come to cause trouble.
If Su Miaomiao were to make the decision, she wouldn’t even disclose it to Uncle Sun and Uncle Wang.
Xie Jingyuan explained, “The two uncles are my elders, it’s not easy to hide that you and I are married.”
Humans and demons were different, whether it was for the sake of Qingxugu Temple, Xie Jingyuan couldn’t announce the marriage of the two openly. But Xie Jingyuan also didn’t want to secretly live his married life with Su Miaomiao in Qingxu.
Telling the two uncles was not only showing respect to them, but also a responsibility to Su Miaomiao.
Outsiders may not know about it, but his elders should know about that marriage and treat Su Miaomiao as his wife.
When they arrived at Qingxu Mountain, Xie Jingyuan temporarily bypassed the Qingxu Temple, and took Su Miaomiao to the back of the mountain to meet Xu Shou and Gu Jialing.
It was noon soon, so Xu Shou and Gu Jialing were sitting by the river, preparing to eat.
Suddenly, Xu Shou sniffed, and in the next moment, he changed into his original form and rushed down the mountain.
Gu Jialing was stunned for a while before realizing it. So he dropped the barbecue in his hand, and turned into a bird to catch up.
Soon, a big black dog came in front of Xie Jingyuan.
Just as Gu Jialing was about to ask where Su Miaomiao was, a white light suddenly shot out from one side, and the familiar cat’s paw held his head and fell to the ground.
“Hey, you stinky cat, why are you still stubborn?!”
Obviously, he could dodge with his cultivation, but Gu Jialing still put his head on the ground, and let Su Miaomiao press him with one paw and shuffle his beautiful feathers with the other.
Su Miaomiao had enough fun, looked at the bird’s round head, lowered her head and licked it.
Finally Gu Jialing couldn’t take it anymore, he lifted his wings up, pushed Su Miaomiao away and flew out.
Xie Jingyuan looked at Su Miaomiao with complicated eyes.
Xu Shou walked around behind Xie Jingyuan silently, in case Su Miaomiao came to him too.
“That can’t happen anymore,” Xie Jingyuan hugged Su Miaomiao back into his arms and made another rule.
“A man and a woman can’t lick each other.”
“But I have licked his hair before.”
“The past is the past. Now that you and I are married, we can no longer act beyond courtesy with them.”
Su Miaomiao looked at Xu Shou and Gu Jialing regretfully.
Xu Shou stared dumbfounded at the Taoist master in front of him.
Gu Jialing was cleaning the back of his head, so he didn’t hear what Xie Jingyuan said.
Xu Shou asked in disbelief, “Master, you just said…”
“Yes, I came back this time to inform you that Miaomiao and I have married.”
In the human world, when a man and a woman got married, they needed to entertain their relatives and friends, but he and Su Miaomiao were both lonely, one was a Taoist master and the other was a demon. So there was no need to pay attention to vain etiquette.
“Husband and wife?” Gu Jialing finally came to his senses and turned into a young man and stood beside Xu Shou. The shock on his face was much more than that of Xu Shou.
After a short silence, Gu Jialing started to ask questions-
“No, you two have only been away for half a year, how did you get married?”
“Taoist Master, even if you want to get married, there are so many ladies. Why did you fall in love with her?”
“Su Miaomiao, you are really brave, aren’t you afraid of thunder?”
For his bunch of questions, Xie Jingyuan answered some, while others were answered by Su Miaomiao’s claws.
Xu Shou had lived for more than two hundred years, and had seen many marriages between humans and demons, some of which were evil demons that confused mortals, and some of them were so moved by their true feelings that they were willing to take risks.
Since the Taoist master chose Su Miaomiao, he naturally liked her. Even if she had shortcomings, as long as the Taoist master liked her, what else could others interfere with?
Especially after hearing from the Taoist master that as long as they did not give birth, they would not be punished by heaven, Xu Shou had only one last sliver of concern.
“If the two uncles disagree, what will you do?”
