But without exception, everyone’s stare was laced with bitterness.
For the Array Lifting Stone, they all made their moves and tried to slaughter each other. What ended up happening was Ling Xian snatching away this treasure.
After what happened, how could they not be bitter?
On top of that, before Ling Xian arrived at the Manor of Light, these people have explored the entire Manor and found that there were only two rooms they could enter, one was the Cauldron Room, the other the Technique Room.
There was no need to mention the cauldron room. The medicinal Dans inside were either dried up from age or divided up amongst people. Inside the Technique Room, on the other hand, the Array Lifting Stone was the only treasure.
When Ling Xian took the Array Lifting Stone as his own, he had taken control of the biggest treasure inside the Technique Room, or rather, inside the Manor of Light.
After all, no medicinal Dan can compare to the Array Lifting Stone.
The addition of everyone’s gains together today was not as valuable as the Array Lifting Stone. In other words, Ling Xian’s gain today has far surpassed everyone here!
For this reason, it was natural for everyone here to be jealous and envious. They all wanted to attack and end Ling Xian here and now.
However, they could only think of this scenario. Even if they ate a cougar’s guts, they wouldn’t dare to make a move against Ling Xian.
"Aye. The biggest fortune inside the Manor of Light was taken away by him. Let us just go."
"We ended up with nothing. Let’s just disperse."
"Yeah… rather than wasting time here, we might as well look for fortunes outside this Manor. We investigated after all. There is nothing else left inside the stone room."
"That’s right. Leaving empty handed is better than losing our lives here."
Everyone shared their opinions and began to march toward the exit of the stone room.
The biggest fortune was taken away from everyone, and they had no balls to attack the victor of the foundational level. Why would they stay? To watch that person smile and feel bad about themselves?
Everyone at the scene sighed. The cultivators who were on the ground pretending to be dead also stood up and dusted themselves. They then proceeded to leave the stone room.
Seeing this, Fang Yun exhaled. His expression told the tale of unspeakable depression. He whined, "I thought I could get some things from inside the Manor of Light. However, the Cauldron Room was raided. Then the Array Lifting Stone from the Technique Room was taken by the boss. Why am I so pitiful?"
"How are you pitiful? Don’t think I don’t know. You took a lot of spiritual medicine from the Medicinal Garden of Immortality. Stop pretending to be pitiful." Lu Chao Xian made a face.
Fang Yun continued to mutter, "Did you take any less than me? If that lady didn’t stop you, you would’ve emptied the Medicinal Garden."
"Hmmph, I didn’t take little stuff, but I also didn’t pretend to be pitiful like you are," Lu Chao Xian sneered.
Ling Xian smiled and shook his head. "Okay, stop arguing."
Hearing this, Fang Yun and Lu Chao Xian glared at each other, but they listened to Ling Xian and stopped their mockery.
"Since you have followed me so far, I will not let you leave empty-handed," Ling Xian paused and said. "How about this, I give you the storage pouch of the three dead Heaven’s Favorites."
After he spoke, he mentally called out the three purple storage pouch. Each one of them was vibrating with a shocking amount of energy.
"There are three of you, one each."
Ling Xian grinned and flung around his sleeve, dropping the three pouches onto each individual’s hand.
"I… is this okay? We didn’t do anything to help. They are all prizes you earned." Lu Chao Xian hesitated.
Yan Ning Zhi shook her head and declined, "Yeah, I accept your kindness. But I do not deserve this and cannot accept such a valuable gift."
Even the thick-skinned Fang Yun blushed, "Brother, I was merely kidding with what I said. Don’t overthink it. You should keep these storage pouches."
"What are you guys being polite for?"
Ling Xian lost his composure and smiled. He got his hands on Di Tian’s storage pouch, which meant he had half of the Alliance’s riches. The pouches of the three core members of the Alliance are not more valuable than Di Tian’s storage pouch.
This was why he didn’t care about the three storage pouches.
On top of that, Yan Ning Zhi was the descendant of the Immortal of Array. Ling Xian had to take care of her. How valuable was a storage pouch? Lu Chao Xian and Fang Yun were considered his friends as well. Toward friends, he has always been generous.
"This isn’t about being polite. It’s that we have no reason to accept. At the very least, I have no reasons to." Yan Ning Zhi nodded. Though her movement was gentle, she was determined.
Lu Chao Xian was the same. He was speechless, but he continued to shake his head.
"How is there no reason?" Ling Xian grinned, "Just think of it as a gift to compensate you guys. I cannot let you return empty-handed."
Yan Ning Zhi and them frowned, debating if they should accept.
"Stop declining. This is embarrassing me."
Ling Xian continued to beam. Glancing at Lu Chao Xian and Fang Yun, he said, "You should know about my background. These three pouches probably only have some medicinal Dans and things like that. They are worthless to me."
Hearing this, Lu Chao Xian and Fang Yun bitterly smiled. The image of hundreds of Petals of Enlightenment in the air filled their brains. That image has long been imprinted in their heads. How did they not understand Ling Xian’s background?
Compared to a room full of Petals of Enlightenment, these three storage pouches really were considered nothing.
"Okay. We will accept."
Lu Chao Xian and Fang Yun said in unison and accepted the storage pouch.
Seeing this, Yan Ning Zhi was startled. She did not understand why they accepted these so fast after what Ling Xian said.
Could it be… Ling Xian has a rich background?
Yan Ning Zhi suspiciously stared at Ling Xian.
How could she know that Ling Xian’s background was more than rich? He could be described as having coins around his waist and spending them as much as he wants. Even a dominating political force may not be able to compare to him in terms of fortune.
"Okay. Those two accepted, you should stop being so stern." Ling Xian smiled.
Yan Ning Zhi frowned. After staying silent for a while, she said, "Ok. Thank you for the gift."
"There is no need to be so polite with me," Ling Xian waved his hand and said out of etiquette.
However, he did not think that such a casual statement made Yan Ning Zhi’s face blush. She thought Ling Xian meant it as she shouldn’t be thinking of him as someone outside from her family.
[Do not treat him like an outsider? Does it mean I should consider him as…]
Yan Ning Zhi’s face was pure red out of shyness. She obviously misinterpreted the whole thing.
Seeing this, Ling Xian silently thought, oh cr*p and quickly changed the topic, "Okay, this is the end of this. Let us leave."
When he finished speaking, he turned to exit the stone room. He planned to leave the Manor of Light and return to the Medicinal Garden of Immortality.
