“Elder Xu, do you like this place?” The female apprentice, who sensed Xu Que’s mood swing vaguely, asked curiously.
“Yes, I like this place so much!” Xu Que nodded his head. The female apprentice smiled for she could understand Xu Que. After all, these peach trees used to be the forbidden place of the Jade Lake. Now, even though they were not as powerful as before, it was still the most beautiful scenic spot in the Jade Lake!
“Could I sit here alone for a while? I like this place so much, and I can almost remember the time I was with my wife when I sit here!” Xu Que asked with tears in his eyes.
“Of course! Elder Xu, I will be right outside of this area. If you want to go back to your room, I will take you back!” The female apprentice said with a smile. Now, she didn’t worry that Xu Que would go into a forbidden place for there was only one way to leave this area. Also, these peach trees had been abandoned, and this frail old man couldn’t make any trouble here.
“Okay! Thank you! What a good girl! If there is a chance, let’s bathe together!” Xu Que said with a kind, nice smile.
“You are welcome, Elder Xu… What?” The female apprentice, who was about to leave, figured out something must be wrong with the words uttered by this old man. Bathe together? …What is this old rascal trying to do?
“What? What’s wrong?” Xu Que asked with puzzlement as he looked at the female apprentice seriously.
“Elder Xu, just now you said let’s…” The female apprentice was stunned by Xu Que’s reaction and now realized she must have misheard him. No way! I really heard the word bathe!
“Oh, I said if there is an opportunity, let’s breathe the air in this place together! I know a magic art of expiration and inspiration that can enhance the cultivation achievement! When it is used in a good place like this, it is even more efficient!” Xu Que said gently.
The girl nodded her head. Her heart was full of self-accusation. What a good old man! How could I attribute bad motives to him? This is totally unacceptable! At last, Xu Que smiled as the girl left, lowering her head. What a good girl!
Now, Xu Que was alone in a big garden of peach trees. Clear lake water, shiny peach trees, an old man, corridors, pavilions…what a scene of classic beauty! Xu Que walked up to the peach tree scratched by Buttface slowly. After looking at it closely, he smiled. Buttface had left a mark here, which meant something was hidden under this tree.
Xu Que tried to check with his Soul Strength, but he found nothing. Then Xu Que sent his Little Gold Clone into his Soul Strength. His perception about things in this area was enhanced remarkably. Under these peach trees, he sensed a lump of horrible Celestial Core Power at the bottom of the lake. It was not fearsome, but unimaginable. The Celestial Core Power was so dense in it that it was just like the liquid in the Golden Branch Jade Elixir Pool.
It seems it is not a problem of the soil. The thing under the trees takes away all essences and nutrition in the soil. It even robbed some Celestial Core Power from the peach trees! Xu Que squinted his eyes for he had figured out the reason. Now, he could see the peach trees were sending Celestial Core Power to that thing. Meanwhile, that thing would also give some Celestial Core Power back to the peach trees to avoid them from withering. However, compared to the Celestial Core Power it consumed, the Celestial Core Power it gave back was nothing and could never keep the peach trees alive! So, as the female apprentice had said, the Holy Mother of the Jade Lake used countless precious resources to keep the trees alive. But it was just a temporary relief for it could only postpone the death of these trees.
Heh! They will need the help of the Act-Tough Saint at last. The thing they need is the Living Holy Water! Xu Que smiled. Then he took out a small jade bottle, which was full of Living Holy Water from the System package.
Xu Que had taken away all the Living Holy Water in the Mystery Land of the South Continent. He hadn’t used it up yet. It was so precious that it was not only favored by the Equipment Forgers, but also the Alchemists! It could be used to forge equipment and refine pills. However, its fundamental function was to promote the growth of all kinds of elixirs! Now, these peach trees only got Celestial Core Power from those precious materials, which couldn’t provide them with Vital Force. It was just like a patient who could only get blood transfusions. If the root cause of the patient’s illness was not removed, the patient would die sooner or later, no matter how much blood was injected into his blood vessels.
Patter! Xu Que opened the jade bottle and poured all the Living Holy Water on one peach tree. The next moment, the tree trembled violently with a powerful Vital Force, which even created many ripples on the lake surface. Xu Que gave a play of several magic arts to gather a gust of powerful water element Celestial Core Power in his palm. Then he pressed his hands on the lake surface abruptly!
Around the peach tree nourished by the Living Holy Water, lake water flowed back instantly. Xu Que could see the Living Holy Water was dashing rapidly into the tree to nourish it. Then powerful Celestial Core Power started to gush into the sludge under the tree through the tree roots.
At this time, Xu Que pressed his hand into the sludge. Meanwhile, the Water Element Celestial Core Power was changed to Earth Element Celestial Core Power. A plume of yellow Qi, which was led by the Celestial Core Power of that tree, rushed deep into the sludge. After several seconds, Xu Que’s eyes lit up and he shouted, “Got you!” He clenched his hand in the sludge. The yellow Earth Element Celestial Core Power wrapped that lump of horrible light like a giant hand.
Xu Que took out his hand from the sludge rapidly. Then a hole appeared in the sludge, from which a lump of light, which was wrapped by Earth Element Celestial Core Power, came out!
When this light, which had hidden under the lake for so many years appeared, it was floating in the air and giving off dazzling light. All the peach trees were covered in dense Celestial Core Power. Then the air was filled with a most refreshing fragrance!
Before he could see it clearly, Xu Que waved his hand to take that light into the System package to isolate its aura.
“Elder Xu, what just happened?” When the light had just been concealed, a figure rushed into the area hurriedly. It was the female apprentice who had left just now. She was surprised for she had sensed a gush of horrible Celestial Core Power. So she had come here immediately to check whether Xu Que had done something horrible in the peach tree garden.
When she ran into the garden, she found nothing. The Celestial Core Power in the peach garden was just a little bit denser than before. But the horrible Celestial Core Power she sensed just now had disappeared.
“What? Nothing! I am old and have dim eyesight. So I tried to watch this peach tree closely. Now, I want to go back to my room to have a rest!” Xu Que replied with a smile as he turned from the lake slowly.
The female apprentice didn’t doubt his words. She nodded her head and looked at the peach trees curiously, for she didn’t understand why the Celestial Core Power in this place was denser than before. Also, she was confused by the horrible Celestial Core Power that had disappeared in a flash. Although the female apprentice was confused, she still led Xu Que back to his room.
After closing his door, Xu Que activated the System interface and opened the System package immediately. Although he hadn’t planned to rob the Jade Lake, he had obtained this thing out of his own good luck! So he would never give it up, for it looked so extraordinary!
However, when he fixed his eyes on the thing, he was dumbfounded. My God! This is…
