The lady in white was looking refreshing, like a fairy. Forming a hand seal, she emitted a mysterious amount of energy. She was trying to taking back the 30% control of the garden.
After a while, that mysterious power faded away.
The lady in white turned around and admired the handsome young man before her. With a smile, she said, "Thank you for giving me back the control of the Medicinal Garden."
"You are being too kind. It seems like you gained back the control." Ling Xian grinned. After he walked out of the Manor of Light, he returned to the Medicinal Garden of Immortality and told the lady about the death of Di Tian.
"Yes, that person is now dead. Of course, I can get my control back." The lady in white nodded softly and smiled a smile that was soul crushing.
It was apparent how ecstatic she was.
To her, the Medicinal Garden of Immortality was her land and her territory. To have absolute control over it was something to be extremely happy about.
Ling Xian softly grinned. "If that’s the case, then our deal is over. I, Ling Xian, do not owe you anything anymore."
"Thank you, Ling Xian. I will remember this kindness." The lady in white’s expression was calm, but her tone was very determined. It seems like she was truly thankful towards Ling Xian.
"There is no need to thank me. You saved my life, after all, I should be thanking you." Ling Xian brandished his arm. "This is it then. I will no longer bother your meditation. Goodbye."
After he finished speaking, he walked towards the cabin, ready to call Yan Ning Zhi and them and leave the Medicinal Garden.
However, just as he turned around, the lady in white opened her mouth and stopped him.
"Wait a second."
Ling Xian frowned and asked, "Is there anything else?"
"You forgot one thing. Our business is unfinished." The lady in white softly smiled. Even though she did not want to, because she was a woman of her words, she must complete whatever she agreed to.
Ling Xian froze but remembered, "There is no need to be so polite. You saved my life, I will not ask for a leaf from you anymore."
"You don’t want it?"
The lady in white brushed away the hair on her forehead and smiled, "You better think clearly. You know my identity, and therefore, you must know how valuable my leaf is."
"Not only is it valuable, but it is also immeasurable. Even the most powerful of the Taoism community would waver before that leaf." Ling Xian smiled wryly. He knew the real identity of the lady in white and knew how treasured her leaves were.
If this woman did not save his life, he would not be acting so polite. But she saved his life once after all and he was not shameless enough to still ask for that leaf.
"If you know, then you must understand how rare opportunities like this one is. It could be said that you may only get a chance like this once in a thousand years. Are you sure you don’t want it?" The corner of the lady’s mouth lifted. Staring at the handsome young man, she found herself not being able to see through him.
As the ruler of the Medicinal Garden and an important figure inside the Palace of Fortune, she has seen countless humans who fought to the death for not just her leaf, but any spiritual medicine inside this place.
For this reason, she thought of humans as greedy.
After being rejected by Ling Xian, she was very surprised, and for the first time, she became curious about this boy.
"Of course I want that item. But I have no reason to take it." Ling Xian wryly grinned.
"You are a very interesting person." The lady in white smiled, "Just take it. We agreed to it in the beginning. I do not want to be someone who doesn’t keep my words."
Then, she retracted her smile, and her expression turned heavier. She formed a hand seal in preparation for getting a leaf of hers.
Instantly, a milky white ray of light seeped out of her.
Following that, a palm-sized green leaf materialized, emitting an aromatic fragrance.
"Phew.. this is the… legendary Leaf of Everlasting Life?"
Staring at the green leaf, Ling Xian’s gaze became heated, and his breathing fastened.
It was the legendary Leaf of Everlasting Life that could give birth to life, flesh, and bones. Even those with great power would go insane over this!
"That’s right. This item has the ability to resurrect the dead. It is known as the number one spiritual medicine." The lady in white nodded, but her face appeared pale.
It was apparent that giving up this life has exhausted her. Even though that was the case, she still gave it up to prove that she was a woman of her words.
Noticing her getting weak, Ling Xian frowned and asked, "Are you okay?"
"It’s nothing. Even though I exhausted my source of energy, I will recover after a while of rest." The lady in white waved around her arm and said, "Okay, take this Leaf of Everlasting Life. If you run into danger in the future, it could save your life."
"Thank you for this grand offering."
Ling Xian’s mouth curled up as he stared at the Leaf with a flaming gaze. He was very excited.
It was the Leaf of Everlasting Life. Owning this item was the same as having a second. The value of this was hard to imagine. It was hard for him to not be overly ecstatic.
Flinging around his sleeve, Ling Xian carefully stored the Leaf of Everlasting Life. Then, he paid respect to the woman, "I appreciate all your kindness. I, Ling Xian, will remember this forever. If you ever need anything, feel free to find me."
"With your talent, you really may be able to help me in the future. We will think of this as an investment." The lady in white smiled. Her pearly eyes stared at Ling Xian with expectation.
Expectation for the day he becomes a powerhouse.
Ling Xian’s expression was serious as he whispered, "If that day really comes, I will not decline."
"Good. Remember what you said today." The lady in white smiled and waved her hand, "Okay, you can go. I need to rest for a bit."
"Okay, please rest well." Ling Xian nodded and walked to the other cabin.
Inside the cabin, he slowly walked to the bed. He mentally summoned the Array Lifting Stone and Di Tian’s storage pouch, as well as the bright green leaf.
"These are all my gains from this trip. It sure was not a waste of time."
Staring at the three items that were hanging in the air, Ling Xian revealed a smile out of satisfaction.
Putting Di Tian’s storage on hold, because he didn’t know what was in them yet, the Array Lifting Stone and the Leaf of Everlasting Life were enough to drive all cultivators insane. Of course Ling Xian was satisfied.
More than that, the meaning of the Array Lifting Stone and the Leaf of Everlasting Life excited him.
The former represented the end of the Immortal Trap, which meant he could strive to a higher level. The latter represented getting another life.
"The Array Lifting Stone is now in my hand. I will now have to try and have my breakthrough." Ling Xian smiled and muttered to himself, "But for now, let me see what is in Di Tian’s storage pouch."
When he was done, he waved for the gold storage pouch to fly onto his hand.
"One of the best Heaven’s Favorites, the leader of the Alliance of Tyrants, I bet his storage pouch is fat." Ling Xian’s lips curled up, and his eyes flashed with anticipation.
"I hope there is something valuable in here that can surprise me."
