"Good morning, Young Master." Meifeng greeted him when he walked out of his room.
"Miss Meifeng? You're cooking breakfast today?" Yuan said.
"That's right. Since I am no longer on vacation, and I will be leaving soon, I want to do something for you before I leave."
"You're also up earlier than usual today, Young Master."
"Yes, I had another bad dream…" He sighed.
"You know, nightmares usually happen because you're stressed or when you're thinking too much about a certain thing. If there's something on your mind, you should let it out. Although I won't be here, you still have Meixiu. I'm sure you can tell her about it." Meifeng said to him.
"I will keep that in mind." Yuan nodded.
A few minutes later, Meixiu woke up and came out of her room, but to her surprise, her mother had already prepared breakfast for them.
"I only made enough for you two since I won't have the time to sit down and eat," Meifeng said after placing the food on the table.
"Thank you, Miss Meifeng. I hope you take more breaks so we can spend more time together." Yuan said.
Meifeng chuckled and said, "Although I would like that as well, I don't want to disturb your love nest too much."
"L-Love nest?!" Meixiu nearly spat out the water in her mouth when she heard Meifeng's words.
"Anyways, I will see you later. Stay safe, Young Master. If you ever run into any troubles, give me a call."
Meifeng then left the place shortly after.
Meixiu turned on the television while they ate so it wouldn't feel as awkward.
"As many of us had anticipated, Chairman Zhao from the Cultivators' Association has handed in his resignation letter after yesterday's drama and will no longer be affiliated with the Cultivators' Association!"
"Eh? He resigned? Things turned out much better than I'd expected." Yuan said after chewing and swallowing the food in his mouth.
"Wow! This food is amazing!" He then realized how great the food tasted and praised it loudly.
"Of course, your food also tastes great, Meixiu, but there's something different about Miss Meifeng's cooking!" Yuan added since he didn't want to upset her.
"Don't worry, I am well aware that I am still nowhere near my mother's level," she said in a calm voice.
"I don't think you should compare yourself to Miss Meifeng. Not only are you less experienced, but you're also much younger than her. If anything, you should compare yourself to people around your age."
Sometime later, Meixiu asked, "What are you going to do today?"
"Well, it's been a while since we've last played Cultivation Online. I am thinking about playing today."
"Okay. You can go ahead and play with me. I want to make sure that everything is actually fine before I relax."
"What about Yu Rou and Xia Jingyi?"
"It might be a bit early, so give them a text first."
Meixiu then texted Yu Rou and Xia Jingyi to see if they wanted to play.
[Yu Rou: Sorry, but I won't be able to play for a while since I will be busy with a few things.]
[Xia Jingyi: I am really close to a breakthrough… I think… So I am going to focus on cultivation for now. Sorry.]
After breakfast, Yuan went into his room and laid on the bed. He then wore the console and went inside Cultivation Online without any help for the first time.
"Welcome back, Brother Yuan." Xiao Hua and Lan Yingying greeted him.
"Good morning, you two."
"Have you dealt with whatever was troubling you?" Xiao Hua asked him.
"Yes, I have… for now."
Yuan then looked around and asked, "Feng Feng still hasn't returned?"
Suddenly, Feng Yuxiang's voice resounded, "I have been back for a while now."
A beautiful woman suddenly approached them from behind.
"It's been a while, Feng Feng," Yuan said to her with a smile on his face.
"Yes…" Feng Yuxiang nodded, still having some trouble looking straight into his eyes.
"Where are the others?" Feng Yuxiang then asked.
"They are currently busy, so it's just me today."
"Well… What would you like to do today?" Feng Yuxiang then asked him.
"Let's go somewhere quieter. How about that pond where we studied our techniques?" Yuan suggested.
They then made their way towards the silent pond.
Once they arrived, Yuan approached the water and silently stared at the water.
"Did something happen to the Young Master? He feels a little different than usual." Feng Yuxiang noticed this and asked the other two.
"No idea…" They shook their heads.
After standing there for a couple of minutes, Yuan turned around and asked the three ladies, "Do you guys believe in reincarnation?"
"Reincarnation?" They repeated.
"It's a common topic in the world of cultivation, right?"
"Well… Although reincarnation is definitely a very popular belief amongst many cultivators from the Lower Heavens to the Supreme Heaven, nobody has ever been able to prove that it exists." Feng Yuxiang said.
"Do you believe it exists?" Yuan then asked.
"Of course. In case you forgot, Young Master, I am a phoenix— I am the embodiment of rebirth. However, I have never experienced reincarnation, nor do I know anybody that has been reincarnated."
"With that being said, even if someone is reincarnated, I don't think they will retain the memories of their previous life, or it would've been proven to truly exist by now." Feng Yuxiang said.
"Why are you suddenly interested in reincarnation, Young Master?"
"Well, it's been on my mind ever since someone mentioned it to me, and I am sort of in this deep hole that I cannot get out because of it…" Yuan sighed.
"If you ask me, I don't think it really matters if reincarnation is real or not. What happened in one's past life has already ended when that person died. Even if they somehow recall the memories of their previous life, what can they do about it? It's not as if they could reclaim the name of their previous life and act like they never died."
"That makes sense…" Yuan nodded, agreeing with Feng Yuxiang's words.
