Meng Qi was totally stupefied, but the white-robed man’s eyes were clear, and his mind couldn’t be clearer still.
Meng Qi stayed unmoved for a long time, but Yun Qingyan suddenly took a step forward. His hand raised up to pinch Meng Qi’s slender jaw.
The temperature of his fingertips was actually warm, but the area where their skins made contact was so hot that Meng Qi almost mistook it for a burning flame.
Meng Qi took a step back subconsciously, tilted her head slightly, and tried to break free from Yun Qingyan’s fingers.
Her face was deep red.
“Haha…” Yun Qingyan suddenly laughed in a low voice. So, it turned out that this girl didn’t feel anything at all… Up until a moment ago, he really almost thought that Meng Qi didn’t care about the things that happened between them. He thought that in Meng Qi’s eyes, he was no different from Ji Wujiong, Chu Tianfeng, and Qin Xiumo… just one of her many patients she wanted to save, and nothing more!
But it turned out that he had misunderstood her.
Yun Qingyan’s eyes softened. “Forget it.” He waved his hand casually, seemingly in a good mood, “You can take as many as you want. It doesn’t matter if you pick them all.”
“No…no need to kiss?” Meng Qi was startled and asked in a low voice. She didn’t notice it herself, but when she said that, her voice carried upon a faint trace of… disappointment.
“What about the Zilan lotus seeds?” Meng Qi paused for a moment before murmuring again.
The corners of Yun Qingyan’s lips raised slightly, and it indeed seemed that he was in a much better mood now. “It’s all yours.” He said again.
“Thank you, Sovereign Qingyan!” Meng Qi sighed in relief and quickly became ecstatic again. She looked at Yun Qingyan and hurriedly added: “Phoenix fruits can be refined into Nirvana Pills. After refining them, I will give the produced pills to you. As for me…” Meng Qi looked up at the hundreds of phoenix fruits hanging on the big tree, “I will keep ten… no! Five will do!”
Meng Qi hesitated for a moment: “As for the Zilan lotus seeds, this particular lotus has never been seen in Three Thousand Worlds for hundreds of years, so the formula of the medicines utilizing it has also been lost. At this moment, I still don’t know how to use it yet, but I will definitely figure it out. Therefore…”
Before Meng Qi finished speaking, Yun Qingyan waved his hand and interrupted. Didn’t she need him to do something? He gave her a glance.
The girl in the blue robe lifted her head again and cautiously said to him: “I… I cannot use aura yet, but after three days, I want to come here to pick the pods.” She asked, “Is it okay?”
The next instant, Yun Qingyan flicked his sleeve, sending a burst of strong wind towards the lotus pods.
“Ah!” Meng Qi exclaimed in surprise. In a blink of an eye, all the mature lotus pods in the pond had been neatly piled up in front of her. “Thank you, Sovereign Qingyan!” Meng Qi was so excited that she hurriedly leaned over and swept all the lotus pods into her storage space item.
“Phoenix fruits need special storage to keep them preserved before they get refined into pills.” When Meng Qi saw Yun Qingyan’s gaze swept towards the tree full of phoenix fruit, she quickly said, “I don’t have anything like that right now.”
“Let’s see…” Yun Qingyan was really in a good mood. He thought for a while and asked, “Shengsheng bottle…or is it a vessel made of the branches of a phoenix tree?”
“Both!” Meng Qi nodded vigorously, “Sovereign Qingyan, you are really amazing! How come you know everything?”
Yun Qingyan chuckled lightly. The initially awkward atmosphere between the two seemed to have completely dissipated. He turned his head and met the girl’s lively eyes, brighter than even the stars. Meng Qi’s voice was actually a little sweet and soft, which didn’t match her usual calm appearance. Being called ‘Sovereign Qingyan’ in such a sweet voice and being looked at with such adoring eyes, there was no way Yun Qingyan didn’t feel good. He raised his hand, and the next moment, a small exquisite wooden box appeared on his palm.
“Phoenix wood box!” Meng Qi exclaimed in surprise, her eyes brighter than before. She then raised her head and looked at Yun Qingyan: “Apart from here, it is said that the only remaining phoenix tree in the Three Realms is in the ancestral land of the celestial demon phoenix clan. Sovereign Qingyan, where did you get this box?”
The Shengsheng bottle was an artifact. Although the refining process was complicated and consumed expensive materials, the bottle was still available in the Three Thousand World. Made correctly, a Shengsheng bottle could hold all kinds of things and preserve them from deterioration, a trait that made it very popular among medical cultivators.
Of course, including Meng Qi!
“A hundred years ago, I had a duel against someone of my generation from the phoenix clan.” Yun Qingyan said in a light tone, “He lost a piece of phoenix wood to me.”
“Amazing!” Meng Qi praised sincerely.
When Yun Qingyan mentioned the phoenix clan, he suddenly remembered something, “During the Grand Tournament a while ago, the last thing Ji Wujiong summoned from the array was a celestial demon phoenix.” He said, “He and the phoenix clan should have some relationship.”
“Hmm…” Meng Qi nodded.
Ji Wujiong… phoenix…
Meng Qi almost jumped up in a panic. She finally remembered what had been nagging her mind! Beyond The Heaven! Su Junmo, Sikong Xing, and her other friends were still waiting for her report!
As a result, not only did she have no chance to ask Yun Qingyan if she could tell others about him. Later, she even fell unconscious for so long… at least more than a day.
Sikong Xing, Sister Xue, and the others should have left for Starfallen Sea, hadn’t they?!
Meng Qi no longer remembered the phoenix fruits and hurriedly rummaged into her storage space.
She forgot! Her Beyond The Heaven’s jade slip seemed to have fallen into Yun Qingyan’s room that day, and she hadn’t had time to retrieve it later. And she also couldn’t use aura now and couldn’t enter Beyond The Heaven!
Meng Qi frowned and retracted her hand.
“What’s wrong?” Seeing her frowning, Yun Qingyan asked.
“My friends said earlier that they would come to Starfallen Sea to rescue me… It’s all my fault!” Meng Qi’s brows furrowed even tighter. “They decided to venture deep into Starfallen Sea because of me. Just to take me home safely.”
“Sovereign Qingyan.” Meng Qi said, “I seemed to have left my Beyond The Heaven jade slip in your previous room. I want to look for it.”
“You can’t use aura now…”
“I can give it a try.” Meng Qi said, “I am a Golden Core cultivator, so the consequences of the spiritual sea shock should not be too serious. I can give it a try; no, I must give it a try!”
“One more thing. Sovereign Qingyan, can I tell my friends that I am staying with you in the Starfallen Sea? I have to ensure them of my safety so they can dispel their worries.” She paused, “Otherwise, they won’t believe that I, a Golden Core cultivator, can survive by myself in the Starfallen Sea.”
Yun Qingyan gave Meng Qi a meaningful look: “Okay!”
“Thank you, Sovereign Qingyan.” Meng Qi breathed a sigh of relief, “When can I go to find my Beyond The Heaven jade slip now?”
“Meng Qi…” Yun Qingyan called her name and stared at her for a moment.
He suddenly handed her a small and shiny white jade token.
“What is this?” Meng Qi was puzzled.
“Even if there is a phoenix wooden box, it is difficult for you to pick all the phoenix fruits at once. This manor is called Luoyun Manor, and this token allows you to enter every area in the manor freely, just like…cough—” Yun Qingyan coughed lightly: “…just like the manor’s owner.”
“Oh.” Meng Qi nodded, “Thank you, Sovereign Qingyan. I will definitely return it before I leave.”
Yun Qingyan: “…”
Meng Qi put away the token and turned to look around: “The previous room…”
“Are you going to see Su Junmo and Sikong Xing?” Yun Qingyan asked.
“Yes!” Meng Qi said.
“I’ll go for you.” Yun Qingyan said.
“Can you?” Meng Qi’s eyes lit up, “Then I will trouble you! Sovereign Qingyan, can you go now? I’m very worried. Maybe they have entered the Starfallen Sea now.”
Yun Qingyan gave Meng Qi another meaningful look, but nodded without a word. He didn’t even need a jade slip — with a flick of his sleeve, he arrived in Beyond The Heaven in an instant.
Standing on the highest floating island, Yun Qingyan flicked his fingers. In less than half an incense stick time, Su Junmo arrived, and he quickly walked to Yun Qingyan.
“Lord.” The white fox demon bowed respectfully.
