"Hello, can I get your names?" A clerk working behind the desk asked Meixiu when she approached him with Yuan.
"Meixiu and Yu Tian," she said.
"Okay, give me a minute to create your identifications."
The clerk then looked up their information before creating an identification card with it.
"I just need a picture of your face now." The clerk then said.
Meixiu went first, taking a headshot by standing in front of the camera on the desk.
Yuan went next.
Once they both took a picture, the clerk printed it on their identification card before handing it to them.
"Here you go. You're done."
Meixiu accepted the cards and left the building shortly after.
"That was easier than I'd expected," Yuan said afterward.
"Yes. Besides that little recruitment, it went much smoother than I'd expected."
Meixiu then said, "Let's go home now that we no longer have to worry about it."
After returning to the apartment, Meixiu helped Yuan take a quick shower before changing his clothes.
"We're going to play Cultivation Online again starting tomorrow, right? Let's call Yu Rou and see if she wants to play with us." Yuan said.
"Okay, let me try to call her now."
Meixiu retrieved her phone and called Yu Rou.
However, Yu Rou didn't answer the phone in time, and it went to her voicemail.
"She's probably busy. I will try again later—"
Meixiu stopped talking when her phone began ringing.
"Oh? It's Yu Rou."
Meixiu quickly answered the phone.
"Sorry, I was just finishing up my registration at the Cultivators' Association." Yu Rou said.
"You also went to register at the association today? We just came back from that place."
"What? Really? What a pity that we didn't meet." Yu Rou sighed out loud.
"Anyways, do you need something?"
"Yes, we plan on playing Cultivation Online again starting tomorrow. Yuan asked if you want to play together."
"Of course!" Yu Rou quickly said.
"Where are you located? We'll come to you."
Yu Rou then gave Meixiu her location.
"Okay, we will see you there tomorrow," Meixiu said afterward.
After hanging up, Meixiu said, "Yu Rou said she'll play with us. She's also at a place called Seashell City."
Yuan proceeded to spend the rest of the day trying to breakthrough to Spirit Master.
Meanwhile, at the Yu Family's main house, Yu Yong and Tang Lee sat before an old man.
"How can we help you, Chairman Zhao?" Yu Yong asked him.
"Thank you for seeing me on such short notice, Yu Family." Chairman Zhao said, and then he placed a small box on the table.
"Accept this compensation from me."
Yu Yong accepted the box without even opening it.
Chairman Zhao took a deep breath before speaking, "Anyways, I have come here today regarding someone from your family."
Yu Yong frowned slightly upon hearing this, wondering if someone from his family had offended the Chairman of the Cultivators' Association.
"She's a servant from your family, and I believe her name is Meixiu." Chairman Zhao then revealed Meixiu's name.
"What? Meixiu?" Yu Yong's eyes widened.
"Did she do something?" he then asked.
"Haha… No, she didn't. She was at the Cultivators' Association today to register as a cultivator, and I was impressed by her cultivation talents. I wanted her to join my Cultivators' Association, but she refused, so I was hoping you could do something about it."
"The Chairman is impressed by Meixiu's talents? Really?" Yu Yong was in disbelief after hearing this.
"Yes. In terms of talents, she's definitely one of the best I have personally seen. Furthermore, she even claimed to be a Ninth Level Spirit Apprentice."
"Ninth level?! That's impossible!" Tang Lee exclaimed. She has only reached the sixth level even with her Heaven-grade cultivation technique. How could a servant who ran away from home reach the ninth level? With what cultivation technique?
"I know it's hard to believe, but if you saw her cultivation speed…" Chairman Zhao said.
"I am willing to negotiate— No, I will buy Meixiu from the Yu Family. How much do you want?" Chairman Zhao then asked.
Yu Yong exchanged surprised looks with Tang Lee.
After a moment of silence, he said, "I'm sorry, Chairman Zhao, but I'm afraid that's not possible right now."
"What do you mean by that?" Chairman Zhao frowned.
"Meixiu… She's actually no longer part of the Yu Family, as she decided to leave the family a few months ago." Yu Yong said.
"What?" Chairman Zhao sat there with a baffled look on his face.
"Then do you know where she is currently?"
Yu Yong shook his head.
"Unfortunately, we don't. Maybe her mother or my daughter knows something. I can ask them right now."
"Please do." Chairman Zhao nodded.
"Alright. Give me a few minutes."
Yu Yong proceeded to take out his cellphone to call Meifeng.
"Meifeng, do you know where your daughter, Meixiu, is currently staying?" Yu Yong asked her after she answered the phone.
After a moment of silence, Meifeng responded, "I'm sorry, but she didn't tell me anything. I have tried calling her before, but she didn't pick up."
"Then do you have any idea where she might have gone?"
"I do not."
"I see… Thank you."
"Umm… If you don't mind me asking, why are you looking for Meixiu?" Meifeng suddenly asked.
"Chairman Zhao from the Cultivators' Association would like to speak with her, so if you see her or hear anything, let me know."
"I understand. I will let the Masters know if I hear from her." Meifeng said.
Yu Yong hung up shortly after and proceeded to call Yu Rou.
"Huh? Do I know where Meixiu went? No, I don't. Why do you ask?" Yu Rou responded in a casual voice after hearing her father's question.
"Are you sure you don't know?" Yu Yong asked again. "Don't you have her contact information? You mean to tell me that you haven't spoken to her since she left? I don't believe it."
"I don't know what to tell you, father. I really don't know anything, but I can try calling her later."
"Okay. Let me know if you learn anything." Yu Yong said before hanging up.
He then returned to Chairman Zhao and said, "I apologize, but it seems like nobody knows her location. However, we'll try looking for her. If we find anything, we'll let you know."
Although Chairman Zhao was unhappy about the results, there was nothing he could do about it.
"I understand. Thank you for trying. Here's my business card. Call me if you find her." Chairman Zhao left his business card on the table before leaving the place.
Once Chairman Zhao was gone, Tang Lee said, "Unbelievable… To think Meixiu was a cultivation genius that even the Chairman of the Cultivators' Association would go through such trouble to recruit."
"We need to find her, or we might risk offending the Cultivators' Association," she added.
Yu Yong nodded, "I agree. I will call some people that specialize in finding people now."
Meanwhile, after her phone call with Yu Yong ended, Meifeng dialed Meixiu's number.
"Mother?" Meixiu quickly answered.
"Be careful, Meixiu. I don't know why, but the Chairman of the Cultivators' Association is looking for you." Meifeng wanted her.
"What?" Meixiu was surprised to hear this. The Chairman still hasn't given up on her?
