Realms In The Firmament - Chapter 207
Chapter 207 - The Misty Cloud Palace
Ye Xiao smiled proudly, ’’What Feng Zhi-Ling promises, it will be done! I know the disease that people in your sect will get and I also know what you people should never do! Your sect treats virginity as more important than your lives. Besides, when you cultivate into some certain levels, you won't survive without this material... That is why I tried so hard to develop the Regeneration Ink Lotus after I got it. It is better to solve such problem sooner than later...’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was extremely happy when she heard so. She wiped the tears on her face and held the arms of the lady in white. She said happily, ’’Master, now we have the Regeneration Jade Lotus, you don't need to be touched by others. And it can temporarily suppress the... You...’’
’’I don't want it.’’ The lady in white shook her head and said something that was so over Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's expectation. Yet it was under Ye Xiao's expectation.
’’Master... What did you say? You don't want it? It is the only thing that can keep you alive... You...’’ Wen-Ren Chu-Chu couldn't believe it!
However, the lady in white just indifferently stood there without saying anything. She looked at the mountains far away. In her eyes, there was a sense of confusion, but they were most filled with decisiveness. The next moment, she smiled.
Ye Xiao sighed, ’’Do you still not understand that your master truly doesn't want to have the Regeneration Jade Lotus?’’
’’Why?’’ Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was surprised and shouted. She seemed asking Ye Xiao and also asking the lady in white.
The lady in white smiled softly and rubbed Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's hair. She was still quiet.
Ye Xiao spoke blandly, ’’Because she has her own master too... Her master must need one kind of the Regeneration Lotus. The Regeneration Jade Lotus could be developed into the Renascence Jade Lotus after all, if there are a lot of precious medical materials to help... It may need a lot of time... Her master may not be able to wait till the day comes. I think it is more likely that she wants to save it for her disciple... She doesn't want to use it, because she wants to keep it till her disciple is in need. If her disciple works hard enough, it will be useful for her...’’
’’Am I right?’’ Ye Xiao looked at the lady in white and asked slowly.
The lady in white looked at him. Her eyes were cold again, but without killing intent anymore. She was still silent.
’’Master!’’ Wen-Ren Chu-Chu cried. Her eyes were full of tears and she was anxious, ’’Master, please don't do this. It is too early for me to have it. I may not be able to get to the stage as high as yours... How can you possibly sacrifice yourself for me like this...’’
She was sobbing too much to speak, ’’Master, since the day I became your disciple, you always kept the good things for me. You never enjoyed anything better. However, this time, I can't be so selfish. Now it is lucky that Brother Feng developed a Regeneration Jade Lotus successfully. It is a proof for that the gods are blessing you. Please, I want you to be selfish one time. Don't be too hard on yourself... Please...’’
The lady in white smiled and rubbed her hair lightly. She murmured, ’’Silly girl.’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu cried out loudly with tears, ’’You keep thinking about me all the time. I can't lose you! You sacrifice whatever you have for me, but how can I be so selfish to accept it...’’
The lady in white smiled, ’’It is unavoidable that we have to be apart with someone we love in our lives. It will happen sooner or later. We can't escape.’’
’’Then let it be as late as it can be!’’ Wen-Ren Chu-Chu shouted emotionally.
Ye Xiao spoke blandly, ’’Is it really so tough? The life in the Misty Cloud Palace?’’
The lady in white was stunned. She turned to Ye Xiao, looking at him straight in the eyes. Her eyes became colder and colder and she spoke blandly, ’’You are an outstanding figure indeed. You actually know the Misty Cloud Palace of mine?’’
Ye Xiao smiled, ’’It is so easy to earn the praise 'outstanding'. I have just heard about it. However, the Misty Cloud Palace is shocking the whole Qing-Yun Realm. It is one of the three Saint Palaces in the Qing-Yun Realm along with the Ice Cloud Palace and Jade Flower Palace. How can I possibly be qualified enough to have connections to such great forces. They are heavens for the mortal people. However, I just didn't know life can be tough in this kind of place.’’
The lady in white spoke blandly, ’’It seems you truly know a lot.’’
Ye Xiao nodded, ’’I know more. With your special personality, you must have an extremely tough life in the Misty Cloud Palace. No matter how strong and powerful you are, you are just not in the same pace with others.’’
’’You are wrong.’’ The lady in white shook her head slowly and she looked depressed.
Ye Xiao smiled and spoke, ’’There is a mountain above the Cyan Mountain. The mountain is inside the misty clouds. It stays in the mists for centuries, the No.1 passage in the Qing-Yun Realm!’’
’’It truly is a distinguished place.’’ Ye Xiao sighed.
He knew about the Misty Cloud Palace. That was no doubt. However, he had never been in touch with it. That was also the truth.
The main forces in the Qing-Yun Realm was like this: one man, two temples, three saint palaces and seven factions!
A man ruled the world. One of the two temples was located in the south while the other in the north. The three saint palaces were hidden inside the mists. Seven factions were in the human world!
Ye Xiao's biggest enemies in his previous life were three of the seven factions. They were the most powerful factions among all.
However, when the three factions hunted down the Xiao Monarch, they got weakened a lot. They might have lost their top-three positions in the seven factions already!
’’However, even though your Misty Cloud Palace is extremely powerful, the Ice Cloud Palace seems to be surpassing you. Even it isn't now, in the coming future, it will. That is the truth.’’ Ye Xiao spoke blandly, ’’The reason is simple. The reason is.... that in your Misty Cloud Palace, there is a problem in the most powerful group.
The problem is naturally... the martial art you are cultivating.’’ Ye Xiao took a breath in and said, ’’Let me make a guess after analyzing all the facts I know. It should be... for some certain incident, your medical material garden was ruined. Or maybe the place you used to produce the Regeneration Ink Lotus, the Regeneration Jade Lotus and the Renascence Jade Lotus was ruined by that incident. Right? Maybe... Maybe you just ran out of you good luck?’’
The lady in white shrank her pupils. She looked at Ye Xiao and took a deep breath in. She spoke in a deep voice, ’’I think you have known too much.’’
Saying so, she showed some killing intent again in her eyes.
For her, a man who knew that much secrets about the Misty Cloud Palace should be killed instantly!
’’I am an outstanding dan-maker. My work on developing the Regeneration Jade Lotus is the best proof.’’ Ye Xiao spoke frankly, ’’Besides, what I know is some basic information about the Qing-Yun Realm. That is all.’’
