“Hehe, Senior Sister Apprentice Tianyin is really knowledgeable; junior fellow apprentice really admits defeat in that.”
Luo Yuan’s eyes flashed, and he kept saying with his expression remained unchanged,
“I also know that this move may harm Piaomiao Peak’s interests, and Nephew Disciple Jia Lan will also sacrifice a lot. So, I’m willing to use 3 pellet grade nine serene illusion spiritual pills, a natural blood jade, and 1 entry to the ‘Illusion Moon Way’ as an exchange. As for Nephew Disciple Jia Lan, I will also provide a lot of resources and will do my best to help her advance to Real Pellet State. So, what do 2 senior sister apprentices think?”
Tianyin Shangren didn’t answer immediately after hearing this, but her eyes flickered.
The nine serene illusion spiritual pill was made by the soul essence of a Real Pellet State beastkin, nine serene illusory moth. This beastkin could only be found in the Evil Ghost Way. The soul essence contained extremely pure illusion which had great benefit to the Real Pellet State cultivator who mainly practiced illusion. It could often help cultivators to break through the bottleneck. Therefore, each pill was worth tens of millions of spirit stones, and it couldn’t be found on the market.
Even the flawless grade nine serene illusion spiritual pill had a certain effect to break through to the Celestial State.
The natural blood jade was also a rare spiritual material to forge illusion magic weapon. The value was so great that it was self-evident.
As for the ‘Illusion Moon Way’, it was a small dimensional space in the Taiqing Sect that was said to be an excellent place to practice illusion and break through the realm. It was similar in nature to places such as the Sky Wind Cave where Liu Ming had been to, but it required several times higher contribution points to enter. It was specially provided for the Real Pellet State cultivator to use. Every activation would consume countless treasured resources, even an honorable peak master couldn’t enter it freely.
These conditions were all abnormally precious, even though Tianyin Shangren, as a peak master, couldn’t help but be moved.
But after she thought slightly, she glanced at Yuyin Zi and said softly,
“Junior sister apprentice, Jia Lan is your disciple, what is your thought on this?”
Luo Yuan felt relieved when he heard this. Since Tianyin Shangren said so, she apparently had acquiesced to the matter, but because Yuyin Zi was Jia Lan’s master, so she couldn’t make it clear.
As long as Tianyin Shangren nodded, this matter was almost settled.
Seeing this, the young man in a brocade robe standing behind Luo Yuan also showed a hint of joy in his eyes.
Yuyin Zi pondered for a moment before slowly speaking,
“The conditions offered by Junior Fellow Apprentice Luo are indeed rich enough, but my disciple is the most directly related person, so I still have to ask her thoughts.”
Luo Yuan frowned, but he seemed to immediately remember something and said with a smile,
“En, Senior Sister Apprentice Yuyin is right.”
“If this is the case, I would like to ask Junior Sister Apprentice Yuyin to ask Jia Lan to come here.” Tianyin Shangren glanced at Yuyin Zi. She seemed a little unhappy, but she didn’t reveal it on her face.
Yuyin Zi nodded. She took out a voice transmission talisman and spoke a few words in a low voice, then she launched a symbol into it. The voice transmission talisman shone and vanished into thin air.
In the following time, the 3 of them drank spiritual tea while chatting casually.
Not long after, there was a faint sound of footsteps from outside the door, and a slim girl in a blue skirt walked into the hall. Her hair was like clouds and her skin was white as jade. It was Jia Lan.
Hearing the sound of footsteps, all 4 people who were in the main hall looked at the door in unison.
When Jia Lan saw outsiders sitting in the hall, she frowned and paused slightly at the door. She continued to walk in and bowed to Tianyin Shangren and Yuyin Zi, saying:
“Disciple Jia Lan greets to peak master and master.”
“You don’t need to be polite, Jia Lan, this Luo Yuan, the peak master of the Illusion Vanish Peak.” Tianyin Shangren greeted Jia Lan with a smile on his cold face when he saw Jia Lan came in.
Jia Lan turned around and bowed to the middle-aged man.
“Greetings to Master’s Junior Luo.”
Jia Lan was no stranger to Illusion Vanish Peak. There were many peaks in the inner doors, but only the Piaomiao Peak and Illusion Vanish Peak were specialized in illusion. This Peak Master Luo Yuan was even the top illusion cultivator of the Real Pellet State in the Taiqing Sect. This was her first time seeing him.
“Nephew disciple does not need to be so polite.” The middle-aged man said, looking up and down Jia Lan and nodding slightly. His eyes flashed with a hint of approval.
The young man in a brocade robe standing behind him was staring at Jia Lan since she stepped in. At such a close distance, the fiery eyes had become more intense.
Jia Lan seemed to feel the hot gaze of the other party, and she frowned slightly with displease, but she didn’t reveal this on her face.
“Jia Lan, sit down here.” Yuyin Zi also saw the gaze of the man in a brocade, and she immediately called her disciple to her side.
Seeing this, the young man in a brocade robe retracted his gaze and stood there honestly.
“May I know why are Peak Master and Master summoning disciple?” Jia Lan walked to Yuyin Zi’s side, did not sit down and just asked lightly.
“It’s like this…” Tianyin Shangren glanced at Yuyin Zi, then she told her about the marriage proposal. However, she intentionally avoided the words that would cause her aversion.
Seeing this, Yuyin Zi frowned, but in the end, she didn’t interject anything.
Jia Lan’s eyes flickered after listening to it. After a while, she took a deep breath and said respectfully to Luo Yuan,
“Master’s Junior Luo, please forgive me. Disciple has no intention of dual-cultivating with Senior Fellow Apprentice Wen.”
As soon as these words came out, both Tianyin Shangren and Yuyin Zi were slightly startled. However, the former’s smile seemed to freeze in an instant while the latter’s complexion was relieved.
The young man in a brocade robe Wen An’s face changed. His eyes flashed sinisterly.
Luo Yuan’s face sank when he heard the words, and he suddenly became a little unhappy. After taking another glance at Tianyin Shangren, he slowly said,
“In this way, does Jia Lan look down on my disciple?”
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Wen is a talented person with excellent cultivation skills. How dare I have this intention? It’s just that I already have someone in my heart and I will marry no one except him. Please forgive me, Master’s Junior Luo.” Jia Lan bowed her head slightly, and her face looked slightly flushed.
Hearing this, everyone in the hall couldn’t help looking at each other.
“Oh, which disciple are you talking about, why have I never heard this from you?” Yuyin Zi asked anxiously after being surprised.
“Reporting to Master, it’s… It’s Liu Ming from the Fallen Serene Peak, Senior Fellow Apprentice Liu.” Jia Lan hesitated and said a name.
“Liu Ming? The Fallen Serene Peak’s disciple who will participate in this Tianmen Convention?” Yuyin Zi was startled.
Although Liu Ming didn’t show up much in the clan after entering the inner door, he had gained a lot of fame recently. Especially his draw with Luo Tiancheng, it shocked the entire inner door. Yuyin Zi apparently also heard of his name.
Tianyin Shangren also revealed an unexpected look upon hearing this.
As a peak master, she naturally knew more about Liu Ming. She knew he was by no means comparable to the ordinary inner disciple. When she thought of this, she suddenly hesitated.
“If I’m right, nephew disciple should still be a virgin right? I can see that Jia Lan attaches importance to this matter, but you should choose the right person carefully for dual cultivation. If you meet someone with ill intentions, it will ruin your life. My disciple really wants to marry you with sincerity. I can personally guarantee this.” Luo Yuan’s smile finally disappeared. He said solemnly after a long while.
“Disciple has been keeping my virginity due to the special cultivation method. I need to maintain a pure yin physique to cultivate. As for Senior Fellow Apprentice Liu and me, we came from the same place, so we know each other for a long time. I’m quite confident that I won’t be wrong about his character. It’s just that he and I are busy cultivating, so I have never mentioned it to the others. Please forgive me, Master.” Jia Lan said, turned around and bowed down to Yuyin Zi.
Yuyin Zi quickly helped her up and said softly,
“Well, Master didn’t mean to blame you. Dual cultivation is a major matter after all, so it must be cautious.”
Seeing this, Luo Yuan snorted softly. Since it had progressed to this point, he couldn’t say anything more.
“Junior Sister Apprentice Jia Lan, since you and Liu Ming have not really married yet, and you have never disclosed your partner identity to others, then you can’t take it seriously. In Cultivation Realm, it is common for several men to pursue a female sister at the same time. I still have a chance to propose marriage to Master Yuyin Zi.” The young man in a brocade robe, who had not spoken, suddenly said.
“Yes, An’er is reasonable.” Luo Yuan said with a bright gaze and nodded.
“This…” Yuyin Zi couldn’t help but be speechless.
“Senior Sister Apprentice Yuyin Zi, me and my disciple come here sincerely; senior sister apprentice won’t take away this opportunity from us right?”
Without waiting for Yuyin Zi to speak, Luo Yuan continued to say with a smile,
“I heard that the senior sister apprentice has been stuck in the Real Pellet State intermediate stage recently and cannot break through the bottleneck. I happened to have a Phantom Heart Book, which is the cultivation experience left over by Elder Huan Xin (also known as phantom heart). I just got it by chance. I believe it should be helpful for senior sister apprentice to advance.”
“Elder Huan Xin’s cultivation experience…” Yuyin Zi’s expression changed drastically. A hint of surprise flashed in his eyes.
Speaking of Elder Huan Xin, he was a grand elder of the Taiqing Sect more than ten thousand years ago. His cultivation base was unpredictable. Rumor had it that he had reached the peak of Celestial State; he was just one step before reaching the Mystic Comprehending State.
This person was born in Illusion Vanish Peak in his early years, and he was proficient in illusion and array. However, he disappeared after an outing. As the elder of a peak, she naturally heard about it.
The cultivation experience left by Elder Huan Xin was of course needed for those who were stuck in the bottleneck like Yuyin Zi.
Not only Yuyin Zi, but when Tianyin Shangren on the main seat heard the 3 words “Phantom Heart Book”, her face was greatly moved too.
Jia Lan looked at the expressions of the 2, and her face turned pale.
“Oh, by the way, I still have 1 thing to mention. Wen An is a direct descendant of Grand Elder Wen Ge. Elder Wen is also very concerned about this marriage proposal.” Luo Yuan was satisfied seeing the expressions of the 3, then he suddenly mentioned another important news.
TL: GG? Will it somehow be resorted to with a fight between Liu Ming and Wen An?
