Qin Yun was overjoyed. He was now very certain that Mo Mo truly was the High Priest of the magical fairies.
After hearing the voice from outside, Mo Mo who was inside the first bead shouted very worriedly, "Brother Yun, you definitely can't return me. I don't want to go back, I just want to follow you. You have to believe me, I will definitely bring you benefit's. I beg you, don't return me, I beg you..."
Mo Mo was begging with all her might but on her delicate and beautiful face, there were only tears. Her pair of green eyes were filled with tears, looking extremely pitiful.
Qin Yun looked at the fairy in the first bead and felt his heart soften. Even if she did not plead with him so sorrowfully, he would never hand her over.
"Teacher... Well, why? They had clearly already given up on that little thing, so why do they want to take it back?" Qin Yun asked, "You need to know that I bet my entire fortune on that auction."
Du Gui said, "The higher-ups of the Star Xuan Wu Academy also didn't tell me much. In short, after they saw an old man from the Blue Spirit Star Palace, they made a decision! They are willing to return your Xuan Points and give you five magical beast crystal eggs!"
"And if I disagree?" Qin Yun revealed an awkward expression.
Du Gui frowned and said, "I don't know either. In short, that little thing must have some other powerful aspects, which is why they are in such a hurry to take it back. If you don't agree, they will continue to send people."
"Right, where's that little thing?"
Qin Yun said haltingly, "That little fellow is in a very bad state. I haven't had enough benefit from it and I'm not going to return it! Since this little fellow made them so greedy, then I must have hit big."
"Qin Yun, that tiny thing's taste is tricky. You can't raise it either. You better think it through." Du Gui said.
"Yeah, I've decided to raise that little guy." Qin Yun nodded and asked, "Teacher, are there any better trees here?"
"Good trees? Of course it's this Starsun Treasure Tree!" Du Gui raised his head and looked at the towering tree that pierced through the clouds as he smiled.
Qin Yun knew that this was a good tree but he could not get it to the space in the first pearl.
"Can I get a branch?" Qin Yun pointed to the dense foliage and asked.
"Whatever, there's plenty anyway. Just don't destroy it." Du Gui waved his hand and said, "I'll go back and tell them that you don't agree to return it and make them give up."
"Un, I'll be troubling teacher then!" After saying that, Qin Yun flew into the air. He took out his spirit essence saber and hacked down a branch that was more than twenty meters long.
This was a relatively tender section. Even though the leaves were as big as a washbasin, they were all new leaves. They were all very tender green and emitted a faint green glow.
He placed this branch and a large chunk of soil into the first bead and planted this huge branch as if it were a tree.
This caused Mo Mo to be extremely happy, joyfully flying around the tree, skipping about on the big leaves, laughing non-stop.
"Mo Mo, if they want to take you back, I will leave this place, you don't have to worry." Qin Yun was also reluctant to part with the fairy.
This little girl acknowledged him so much. She trusted him so much that she already treated him as a family member. How could he bear with it?
"Big Brother Yun, where did you get the branches? Trees that can grow these kinds of branches are very powerful." said Mo Mo sitting on a leaf.
"I'm in the hollow of this big tree, what's wrong? You know something about this tree?" Qin Yun also knew that the Starsun Treasure Tree was not simple and asked hurriedly.
Qin Yun used his mind energy to transform it into sound and transmitted it into the first bead to communicate with the fairy.
"A tree that can grow for many years and become very large, this means that there is a totem within the tree! If you let me out, I might even be able to find the totem of this tree!"
Qin Yun immediately released the fairy, allowing her to rest on his shoulder.
"It's up there!" After Mo Mo closed her eyes, she quickly sensed it and explained.
Qin Yun hurriedly walked out of the tree hole. His speed was quite fast.
Once he was outside, he floated upwards.
At seventy meters, Mo Mo stopped him.
"At this height, can you enter the middle of the large tree? There's a very old inner core inside, there's a totem inside the core!"
Qin Yun circled around the tree and quickly found an empty tree hole.
He went into the hollow of the tree and started digging again. After half an hour of work, they finally arrived at an empty spot in the middle of the big tree.
In the middle of this area, there was actually a transparent crystal pillar!
When Qin Yun saw the transparent crystal pillar, he could not help but be stunned!
Because, deep in the Tian Xiao Imperial Tomb, there was a similar pillar in the circular stone room.
That was the source of the energy that maintained the operation of the Tian Xiao Imperial Tomb.
"Mo, do you know what's going on with this crystal pillar?" Qin Yun circled the crystal pillar and carefully observed it's interior.
When he was in the Tian Xiao Imperial Tomb, he had obtained the Mental Resonance Xuan Pen and an inscription spirit.
"This is the inner core of the big tree! The totem is hidden inside, I can already see it." The fairy floated around the crystal pillar and said, "Let me try and see if I can read this totem and brand it on your body."
Qin Yun's eyes widened as he looked at the crystal pillar. He could only see many white beams of light fluttering inside it. He could not see any totems at all.
However, he felt that it wasn't very strange for Mo Mo to say that she could see.
"Where is the totem? I don't see it!" Qin Yun moved closer. His eyes had touched the crystal pillar but he still could not see it.
"Of course you can't! The totem of the tree exists in the form of a soul body. Of course, you can't see it but I can see it." Mo Mo smiled and said, "Brother Yun, totems are best accompanied by a spirit body. Have you decided where to place the totem?"
Qin Yun had three Martial Spirit's. Two of them were already occupied by the Heavenly Lion and Dragon Tiger totems.
Right now, only the Nether Sun Martial Spirit was empty.
"Put it in my dantian. This is the only place I can place a totem." Qin Yun asked, "Do I need to do something?"
"No need. Lie on the ground, close your eyes and relax your entire body." As she spoke, her body was already covered in a layer of white light.
She controlled the threads of light and poured them into Qin Yun's dantian, pouring them into the nether sun inner core within his dantian.
"Mo, won't you hurt the big tree this way?" Qin Yun asked worriedly. The Starsun Treasure Tree was of great importance to Du Gui. He did not wish to kill the tree.
"It won't hurt the tree. I'm just copying the totem and fusing it with your martial spirit. It won't hurt the tree at all. However, this totem is still in it's infancy and needs a long time to grow. It will only be used by you after that." When Mo Mo saw how concerned Qin Yun was for the big tree, she was also very grateful.
"Alright, since I already have the Heavenly Lion and Dragon Tiger totems, it should be enough for me to meditate for a while." Qin Yun nodded his head as he inwardly sighed at the power of the fairy. How could she fuse the tree totem into his Nethersun martial spirit so quickly?
Mo Mo said, "Tree totems are extremely rare! Compared to beast totems and weapon totems, they are much rarer. I am not too sure about the strength of the totems but I am sure that they are extremely useful."
Qin Yun stood up and looked at the crystal pillar. He suspected that the Tian Xiao Imperial Tomb had a hidden totem too.
"Let's go out! Don't let anyone discover this place!"
Qin Yun hurriedly hid the fairy and walked out of the "dantian" of the Starsun Treasure Tree. After exiting, he sealed the tree hole.
"Big Brother Yun, the tree totem that I just helped you obtain consumed a lot of energy, maybe in two or three days I'll be hungry. I'm sorry." Mo Mo said in a small voice.
"Don't worry, I will help you get food as soon as possible." Qin Yun said with a smile.
For Mo Mo to help him obtain the rare tree totem, even if he had to spend a few more Spirit Beast Cores, it would be worth it.
"Big Brother Yun, I just shed a pair of wings. If they don't give up on me, you give them these wings and say I'm starved to death so they won't make things difficult for you."
Qin Yun took out a pair of tiny transparent wings from his storage space. They were extremely small and very beautiful, as though they were specially crafted from crystals.
Carefully putting the wings away, he went back to his tree hole and waited for the news from Du Gui.
Du Gui had a relatively high status in the Star Xuan Wu Academy. If not, the higher-ups of the academy would have personally come to negotiate with Qin Yun about the fairy.
Qin Yun waited in the tree hole for an hour before he heard Du Gui shout from outside, "Qin Yun, come out for a moment."
He hastily walked out and also felt a few strong auras. There were a few experts of the Martial Dao Realm outside!
After leaving, he saw Du Gui and Pan Dawei.
Beside them, there were five old men with white beards, hair that reached their waists and wrinkled faces.
Three of them were wearing white robes, the other two were wearing blue robes from Blue Spirit Star Palace.
"Qin Yun, I heard that you are unwilling to hand over the fairy, right? The offer we made could be considered pretty good but you better not be too greedy." A hunchbacked old man said in a cold voice.
"The fairy was purchased by me and belong to me. Why should i hand over anything?" Qin Yun said with a sneer, "Back then, you had given up on the fairy and auctioned it off. Why are you retracting your auction now?"
"You disrespectful young man, how dare you talk back!" The hunchbacked elder roared angrily and pushed Qin Yun back.
Du Gui hurriedly walked over and stood in front of Qin Yun. He said, "Elder Zhang, while young people might be a little irritable, it's also you who are in the wrong first."
"Am I wrong? It was clearly him. He knew that the magical fairy is extremely precious and wanted to take it for himself." Elder Zhang said angrily.
"Pfft! You guys took it out for auction. I bought it, it's mine. I'll do whatever I want, it's none of your business!"
Qin Yun was also infuriated. That fairy was clearly bought by him but this old bastard had treated it like his own. It was no different from banditry.
(TL NOTE : what a pity..even Star Xuan Wu has scum like this...)
