"Holy spirit fruit?"
Those three words fell clearly into Yunyao's ear as she was carried around by Gu Ruoyun. Her eyes sparkled immediately and she quickly raised her head. Her gaze finally landed on the inconspicuous fruit sitting in Elder Jiu's stall.
A holy spirit fruit was considered as a sacred object to a cultivator. However, if a cultivator wishes to consume it, it must first be properly processed. Even so, one can only activate half of its medicinal effects.
In truth, holy spirit fruits were specially prepared for spiritual beasts! Furthermore, an unripe holy spirit fruit can even cause a fight to the death between spiritual beasts, all for the sake of obtaining one holy spirit fruit.
She had not expected that they were able to find such a treasure here.
"Xiao Yun, this holy spirit fruit can help raise this little kitty into the ranks of a Martial Emperor," said Qianbei Ye as he turned his head to Gu Ruoyun.
You're the little kitty, all of your family members are little kitties! Yunyao cursed silently.
If it weren't for her curiosity towards this trade fair, she would never have disguised herself like this. If she had appeared in the form of the White Tiger, she would certainly have caused a huge sensation.
So she had no choice but to disguise herself as a cat.
"Mmm?" Gu Ruoyun gently raised a brow, "This holy spirit fruit is certainly a rare treasure. With the help of this, Baobao and Yunyao's powers will greatly increase."
Only one holy spirit fruit will ripen every ten thousand years. Therefore, it can be assumed that there was no one in this world who was ignorant of its great value.
However, the holy spirit fruit doesn't look very much different from an average fruit. As such, not many can identify it at all.
But what Gu Ruoyun did not expect was that someone from the Medicine Order actually knew about the holy spirit fruit.
"If you like, I can just grab it for you."
Qianbei Ye lowered his head towards the young girl next to him and spoke as if it were as easy as having a meal or drinking a glass of water.
If she wants something, forget about one holy spirit fruit, he would seize the entire mainland for her sake!
Gu Ruoyun shook her head, "Xiao Ye, we are refined citizens. There's no need to use violence to solve our problems. That was bad. Bad!"
Even though both parties had deliberately lowered their voices, with Elder Jiu's cultivation rank even the soft buzz of a mosquito could reach his ears.
So, upon overhearing the couple's shameless conversation, the corners of Elder Jiu's lips twitched violently. He had to take a deep breath in order to prevent himself from fainting from anger.
Refined citizens? He thought indignantly, Do refined citizens casually open their mouths to snatch away other people's treasures? If they're refined citizens, then perhaps shameless people were now extinct from the entire mainland.
Elder Jiu fixed his gaze upon the little white cat in Gu Ruoyun's arms. a strange light flashed across his eyes and left as quickly as it came. He said, "You two, are you interested in my treasure?"
Gu Ruoyun rubbed her chin and smiled, "A while ago, you mentioned that you would be willing to give this holy spirit fruit to anyone who would be able to cure you of your chronic disease?"
Holy spirit fruit?
The passers-by around Gu Ruoyun could not help but pause in their steps upon hearing her words. They stared in astonishment at Gu Ruoyun's direction as their eyes filled with shock.
"Holy spirit fruit? Could it be that this fruit was actually the mythical holy spirit fruit?"
"The holy spirit fruit, it is said that once consumed, it can raise a cultivator's powers over a few levels consecutively. Don't know if that's actually true though."
"Aren't those members of the Dongfang family? They want to obtain the holy spirit fruit? But their intentions are pretty normal. Without the help of the holy spirit fruit, they couldn't possibly be able to pass the Trials. With the help of the holy spirit fruit, they just might stand a chance."
The crowd began to whisper into one another's ears and discussed feverishly amongst themselves.
Yet, Gu Ruoyun, who was in the middle of the whirlpool of discussion, only showed a calm smile on her face as she looked serenely back at the old man who was standing behind the stall.
