Almost at the same time, a beautiful figure suddenly dashed up from the mountain below; it was a beautiful young woman. She looked at Xu Que in confusion and frowned slightly, “Young Master Zhan, why aren’t you speaking?”
“Uh, nothing. How’s your preparation?” Xu Que immediately resumed Zhan Gaoli’s usual expressions and even imitated the tone of his speech. He was curious. When he passed by, he hadn’t discovered the existence of that woman. But when the woman appeared, he knew that the mountain was set up with spells and had concealed all forms of presence.
Now that the woman had taken the initiative to find him, Xu Que immediately began to perform. He wanted to find out what Zhan Gaoli was up to since he had actually set a time to meet with someone.
“How else can we prepare? We can only wait for them to ripen. According to what we’ve promised before, after three days, all the Aquamarine Kirin Fruits will be ripe, and the four fruits will be divided equally! But Young Master Zhan, you have returned once every two days. Is it that you don’t trust me?” The young woman’s gaze had a trace of seduction, as she accused Xu Que with a fleeting gaze.
Xu Que raised his eyebrows. Good fellow, I didn’t know that this woman had a relationship with Zhan Gaoli too!
“Of course not. How could I not trust you?” Xu Que laughed and reached over for the young woman’s small waist.
The young woman’s expression changed slightly. She pushed Xu Que away. She whispered, “Hey, they’re still below. If they find out, our plan will be very hard to achieve!”
“Ha, ha, who asked you to be so attractive? How can I endure it?” Xu Que laughed again, but he didn’t make any moves. He had basically understood the general situation. Obviously, Zhan Gaoli and the others had found an Aquamarine Kirin Tree together, but the fruits weren’t ripe yet, so they concealed it with spells to prevent others from discovering it.
But the relationship between the woman and Zhan Gaoli wasn’t simple; the two had other plans in secret. As for what that plan was, Xu Que could guess. It must be that the two wanted to pocket the Aquamarine Kirin Fruits without sharing.
“Since you’re here, let’s go down. There are only three days left. You should be more careful. If they discover us in advance, we’ll be in trouble,” the woman reminded him again.
Xu Que nodded. “Don’t worry, with my strength, it will be easy to finish them off!”
“Humph, you have the cheek to say that. You know, every time I poisoned my husband these last few days, I was so frightened. Fortunately, your poison was tasteless enough, and he didn’t expect that the woman who has accompanied him for decades would poison him, so he hasn’t noticed it!” The woman rolled her eyes at Xu Que.
Xu Que gasped in surprise after hearing her.
This woman is so vicious that she colluded with Zhan Gaoli to poison her own husband!
D*mn it, this is simply a pirated version of Pan Jinlian and Wu Dalang, and my “Zhan Gaoli” is a living Ximen Qing!
“Ha, ha, I had the confidence to entrust you with the task. All right, let’s hurry up so that they won’t be suspicious!” Xu Que responded casually and urged the woman to go down with him.
After all, he wasn’t very clear about their plan now. If he continued to talk about the details of the plan, it would be embarrassing if he couldn’t answer her questions, and the wicked woman would surely notice something was amiss.
Finally, under the guidance of the young woman, Xu Que performed a little Lightweight Art and landed among the mountains. The young woman opened the way for Xu Que, so he went through the spell smoothly. At last, he arrived at the middle of the spell Array. Only then did he realize that the foot of the mountain had a completely different environment. It was as desolate as the outside, but the Spiritual Qi was abundant at the foot of the mountain. In the center of a dry land, there was a giant tree which was tens of meters high. Its trunk was covered with dense veins that looked like a Kirin.
Of course, what was really precious about that tree were its fruits!
Aquamarine Kirin Fruit was a very rare Spiritual Fruit. Its growth environment was very demanding, but it was a natural medicinal item. For the cultivators in the Human Celestial Stage, it was a precious treasure. It could increase an enormous amount of Celestial Core Power to achieve breakthrough in the Cultivation Stage. Simply said, an Aquamarine Kirin Fruit was equivalent to a cultivator in the Human Celestial Stage practicing for 500 years in Secluded Meditation; it was extremely valuable!
Now, on that tree there were eight Aquamarine Kirin Fruits in a pale green color. Each Aquamarine Kirin Fruit was only the size of a little thumb, and it emitted a faint light and a strong Spiritual Qi. When they had completely turned aquamarine, it meant that they were ripe and ready to consume.
Seeing that, Xu Que’s heartbeat couldn’t help but increase. He had finally found a treasure that could make his heart race. If he could swallow those eight Aquamarine Kirin Fruits, he wouldn’t need to spend an immeasurable amount of time in Secluded Meditation. He was confident that he could attain the Later Stage of the Human Celestial Stage or even the Earth Celestial Stage in just a few days. He would advance faster than killing to earn his Experience Points like before!
“Uh, Young Master Zhan, you’re here?” A hoarse voice was heard.
Xu Que looked around and saw two men coming out of a cave that had been recently dug. The man who spoke was a middle-aged man with a very hoarse voice.
There were many scars on his face.The scars looked very odd, like a kind of Rune Mark that was permanent and looked extremely ugly.
The other man was bland in his appearance, but his facial features were similar to those of the middle-aged man, except that he had no scars on his face, and his Cultivation Stage was similar to that of the middle-aged man. The middle-aged man was at the peak of the Human Celestial Stage, while the other man was in the Medium Stage of the Human Celestial Stage. They must be two brothers!
“Uh, there’s nothing to do outside, so I have come to wait for the Aquamarine Kirin Fruits to ripen with all of you!” Xu Que immediately nodded and responded with a slightly arrogant tone.
He felt that with Zhan Gaoli’s status, he was unlikely to mingle with that group of people. Moreover, the middle-aged man spoke with a trace of fear, so Xu Que felt that he shouldn’t be too polite. He needed to have an arrogant demeanor like Zhan Gaoli. Their reactions also suggested that his judgment was right. The middle-aged man didn’t suspect anything about him. They nodded after hearing him, and their attention was on the Aquamarine Kirin Tree!
“We’re so lucky to find this Aquamarine Kirin Tree here. It’s a piece of great enlightenment for us, but we have to thank Young Master Zhan for his spell. Otherwise, there would surely be countless people fighting for this now!” Just then, the middle-aged man spoke.
“Oh, that’s nothing, you scratch my back and I scratch yours!” Xu Que smiled, still maintaining that haughty look.
“All right, let’s not spend too much time looking at this Aquamarine Kirin Tree. It’ll take another three days for it to ripen!” Then, the young woman smiled and went to the side of the middle-aged man and held his arm in a loving manner.
The middle-aged man laughed and said, “Ha, ha, Mei Mei is right. Let’s go in first.”
After that, the middle-aged man held onto the young woman’s small waist and stepped into the cave, following which he activated a Protective Screen to cover up the cave entrance.
But with Xu Que’s strength, it was easy to hear the rough and harsh panting sound coming from the inside. Obviously, the two went in to do something indescribable.
“Tut, tut, tut!” Xu Que couldn’t help shaking his head. He couldn’t imagine that Zhan Gaoli had such a peculiar taste that he even chose a loose woman with an ugly husband.
But just then, Xu Que happened to catch a glimpse of the man beside him. He should be the younger brother of the middle-aged man. He hadn’t spoken yet. But when Xu Que caught a glimpse of him, he saw that he was staring at the cave with a trace of jealousy and hatred in his eyes. Although his emotions merely flashed for a short moment, Xu Que captured it and was absolutely sure. He was surprised and he guessed that both brothers liked that woman.
“Humph, this b*tch!” Suddenly, the man cursed under his breath, and then he ignored Xu Que as he walked straight into another cave.
Xu Que felt nothing at first, but when the man entered the cave, he suddenly realized that something was wrong!
The man just scolded that young woman. What’s going on?
Xu Que was baffled. What a complicated relationship involving the four of them!
