“Oh! You have started fighting over me so quickly?” Xu Que winked and looked at Liu Jingning playfully.
“I’m serious!” Liu Jingning rolled her eyes at Xu Que and shook her head.
Xu Que reached out and rubbed Liu Jingning’s head. He said with a smile, “Just set your mind at ease, I’m well aware of the situation.”
As a matter of fact, Xu Que had also discovered something through his previous conversation with Bai Cailing. She only cared about the Jade Lake. Everything she did was for the Jade Lake’s interests.
For this reason, since the two factions, the Jade Lake and the Divine Farmer Clan, had a good relationship, Bai Cailing was not going to sell out and betray the Divine Farmer Clan.
However, the two factions’ good relationship was based upon making use of each other, and this was why it didn’t matter that Bai Cailing divulged the location of the Chiliad Gold Resurrection Vine’s farmland.
Bai Cailing had discovered its location when she was in the ancient battlefield, but she didn’t inform Xu Que at that time. She had probably planned to look for it by herself if she ever got a chance.
It was only after Xu Que returned that Bai Cailing told him about the location, before she entreated him to treat the peach garden.
According to normal people’s thought processes, they would first raise a request before offering something in exchange. However, Bai Cailing had done the opposite.
It was obvious that Bai Cailing had a good understanding of the character of Elder Xu, and she was aware that he hated being threatened or bribed into carrying out exchanges. This was why Bai Cailing had divulged the location of the vines to Elder Xu, in order to keep a good relationship with him. At that time, she raised her request, knowing full well that Elder Xu wouldn’t reject her request!
If those two things had occurred separately, one probably wouldn’t find anything amazing about them, but, when one pondered them together, one could understand that Bai Cailing was shrewd and sophisticated. Even though she was doing everything for the Jade Lake, she still made Xu Que feel quite uncomfortable.
All after, in other people’s eyes, or in Bai Cailing’s eyes, Xu Que looked as if he had been exploited.
Even though Xu Que had comprehended this, he wouldn’t expose it. He had lived two lifetimes, and he had a good understanding of the ways of the world. There wasn’t any need to expose this matter.
Xu Que really didn’t have any feelings for Bai Cailing that Liu Jingning needed to be jealous about!
He had mingled in the World of Cultivators for a long time, and, at first, he was just a greenhorn who easily felt things for other people. And, at that time, most of the people surrounding him had had pure intentions.
Now, however, anyone who could cultivate to such a high stage was by definition not a simple person.
Xu Que wasn’t any longer as he had been, and he wouldn’t easily fall for any pretty woman he saw.
“Lil Que, did you really understand what I said?” Liu Jingning looked suspiciously at Xu Que.
After all, it seemed to her that this guy was quite fickle.
“Ha, ha, it’s me who should raise such a question to you. You can be at ease. Do you really think that I’m the same as before and that I haven’t changed at all?” Xu Que chuckled.
Moreover, there was still something that he didn’t say. Since he had Liu Jingning, Jiang Hongyan, and the others, he was already content with what he had and didn’t need any more women.
But Xu Que couldn’t really state such words because he found them quite disgraceful. After all, he was someone who had grown up in a monogamous modern society, and, even though polygamy was quite ordinary in the World of Cultivators, Xu Que still found this matter embarrassing. However, it was fortunate that even though he didn’t state it, he still felt that Liu Jingning understood it slightly.
“Fine, it seems like you have grown up.” Liu Jingning was taken aback for a moment, before she looked at Xu Que with a fake smile and spoke.
“It was always big, okay? I must look for a chance to let you try its size.” Xu Que chuckled, before he strode away toward the peach garden. He left behind an angry Liu Jingning, whose face was very flushed.
Mo Junchen and Duan Jiude obviously understood what Xu Que had implied. But they acted like they hadn’t heard him and looked around at anything that wasn’t Liu Jingning.
As for Buttface, he wore a confused look and pursued Xu Que to join in the fun. He wore a curious look and questioned Xu Que, “Brother Que, brother Que. What size should she try? I also want to try it.”
One day quickly elapsed.
Xu Que diluted a bottle of Living Holy Water and sprinkled it on every peach tree. He didn’t have to spend a long time doing this. But, he still stayed for a whole day in the peach garden so that the members of the Jade Lake would assume that this task was quite difficult.
The next day at dawn, all the peach trees had recovered, and they released boundless Celestial Core Power and Spiritual Qi that spread throughout the whole Jade Lake Holy Land.
Such a great disturbance obviously alerted all the women of the Jade Lake.
At dawn, the entire area surrounding the peach trees became filled with people. Xu Que acted as if he had just woken up from sleep and opened his sleepy eyes, as he walked out, leaning on his walking stick.
Bai Cailing and more than ten deacons and elders rushed over, and, as they saw that the peach trees and all the garden had changed beyond recognition, they all became excited.
“Elder Xu, this is a great favor and kindness, and the Jade Lake will never forget it,” Bai Cailing expressed her gratitude.
“It’s nothing. I have just slept for a night with them. Fine, since the peach garden has recovered, I also must head off to carry out my proper business. I’m quite pressed for time, and I mustn’t delay it any longer,” Xu Que spoke calmly.
“Okay, Elder Xu, I will accompany you,” Bai Cailing promptly said.
“Huh…you don’t have to. Moreover, now that the peach garden has recovered, you are going to be quite busy. It’s enough for me to take a trip there.” Xu Que was taken aback. He didn’t expect that Bai Cailing would be so cordial. He thought to himself, “Did she also want to get her share of the Chiliad Gold Resurrection Vines?”
Bai Cailing said with a faint smile, “Elder Xu, there is something you don’t know. There are many Restriction Spells set up on the Mystery Land, and they can’t be broken by brute force. However, innumerable disciples of our Jade Lake have ventured there, and we have accumulated rich experience through many generations. We have managed to figure out a way to pass through the Restriction Spells. But this method is quite complex and touches upon many subjects. This is why I want to show you the way personally so that you can save time and energy.”
As Bai Cailing spoke, it seemed as if she had recalled something, and she added something further, “But what you have said isn’t wrong. The Jade Lake will have many affairs I must take care of personally, and this is why, after I show you the way inside, I have to come straight back here.”
“Fine! Bai Cailing, I will have to trouble you with it.” Xu Que revealed a faint smile and nodded.
Bai Cailing added such a statement to inform Xu Que clearly that she didn’t want to take a share, and that she didn’t covet the Chiliad Gold Resurrection Vines. This was why after she helped them inside, she would return home. This was really a wise choice!
Moreover, in Bai Cailing’s eyes, the value of the Jade Lake’s peach trees was much higher than the Chiliad Gold Resurrection Vines, and, as a matter of fact, this was really the case. If this hadn’t been the case, Bai Cailing wouldn’t have given up the location’s secret to have Xu Que treat the peaches.
Xu Que’s group quickly set out on its journey.
Bai Cailing showed them the way personally, and, this time, she didn’t let any of the Jade Lake’s disciples follow her, and she didn’t take any of her guardians with her.
After all, the Mystery Land was in the Tianxiang Celestial Realm’s domain, and it wouldn’t be too good for them to let many people learn about this affair. This was why Bai Cailing chose to guide the group alone, and such a matter made Xu Que develop a new understanding of her.
This woman was really anything but simple. She was brave, scheming, and shrewd, and Xu Que admired her. After all, nothing that Bai Cailing had done overstepped the bounds of decency, and it seemed to him that she was a trustworthy and moral person.
Such a person had boundless prospects, and such a woman didn’t need a man’s care or protection. Even on Earth, she probably could become a successful career woman.
