Qin Wushuang listened silently. He had already guessed that the Monkey Clan should have been one of the powerhouses from the Xuan Yuan Mound. They were only sent into exile at the Dispersed Praying Mountain. However, he did not want to get involved in the internal affairs of the Monkey Clan. Although he felt happy for Bao Bao, a friend in times of tribulation, he cared more about the Spiritual Infant Fruits.
After that battle, regardless of Bao Bao or the Silver Monkey King, they had already acknowledged Qin Wushuang. And initially, the Monkey Clan did not reject human beings as intensely as they did the Barbarian Tribe. Overall, they were friendly and open-minded toward the human beings.
Otherwise, with all these frequent human adventurers coming to the Monkey King Mountain, the Monkey Clan would have slaughtered them all.
"Silver Monkey King, let's go back to the Stone Forest Cave. This time, the Barbarian Tribe went overboard, we have suffered a great loss." Bao Bao said with a solemn tone.
The Silver Monkey King sighed: "Fortunately, I already foresaw the events and dismissed all the monkey disciples. Otherwise, we would have suffered a much greater loss. Although the Barbarian Tribe did not send many people, the ones they sent were all elite warriors. Ok, we will collect on this grudge with the Barbarian Tribe in the future."
When they returned to the Stone Forest Cave, the Silver Monkey King issued a call and all the monkey disciples that were hidden in all hiding spots returned to the mountain. After a slight tally, this time, the Monkey Clan had lost three or four hundred disciples. They were all brave warriors of the clan. Although they were not the strongest, they were part of the main force.
Of course, the Barbarian Tribe also suffered a great loss. Both sides had an almost equal number of loss.
After clearing away the aftermath of the battle and reorganizing it, the Holy place of the Phoenix Return Mountain was restored to its original look. While interacting with a human friend like Qin Wushuang, the friendly Monkey Clan treated their guest to the best refreshments. Qin Wushuang felt deeply honored as he enjoyed the accompaniment of both the Gold and the Silver Monkey King. This was not a treatment to be enjoyed by ordinary humans.
When the Silver Monkey King asked about Qin Wushuang's background, Qin Wushuang felt that since he had gone through a life and death situation with the Monkey Clan, he should not hide it. Instantly, he said: "I came from the Great Luo Empire to the east, I am a disciple of the Stargaze Palace. My teacher's dantian was injured by evil enemies, thus I came to the Dispersed Praying Mountain in search of the Spiritual Infant Fruits. And when I arrived at the Monkey King Mountain…"
The Silver Monkey King also felt surprised when he heard his words: "I didn't expect such righteous people existed in the human world. I have underestimated the human countries. Wushuang, you came to the right place."
Bao Bao chuckled: "Silver Monkey King, I told him way before that he came to the right place. However, I also told him that to get the Spiritual Infant Fruits, he must defeat the king of the Monkey Clan."
The Silver Monkey King nodded: "It is not easy to get something like the Spiritual Infant Fruits. Although we do not restrict the adventurers at the monkey king mountain, we only allow them to gather some ordinary resources and spiritual objects. Usually, they are not allowed to touch anything that is over a hundred years old. And the Spiritual Infant Fruits is something that would only sprout every hundred years or so. It's one of the rarest item of the mountain."
Qin Wushuang sighed: "Since the Spiritual Infant Fruits is this , the Holy Ivory Flower must be something outstanding, right?"
The Silver Monkey King laughed: "To put it precisely, the Holy Ivory Flower does not have a ranking. This thing is born of nature and the chances of it blooming are too slim. For the Spiritual Infant Fruits, the monkey king mountain has always had them. The most precious thing at the Monkey King Mountain are the thousand year spiritual objects. The Holy Ivory Flower that occur every tens of thousands of years is an accident, for sure it is an accident! Of course, only when a Golden Monkey King like Bao Bao swallows it, then it would not be considered a waste."
Bao Bao laughed and did not become full of himself. He said: "Silver Monkey King, Big Brother Wushuang has helped us so much, we should give him the Spiritual Infant Fruits, right?"
The Silver Monkey King nodded: "Of course, not only should we give him that, the Monkey Clan should not hesitate to give him anything else that is precious. The Monkey Clan has always made a clear distinction between gratitude and grudges. The humans always said that a drop of water shall be returned with a burst of spring. The Monkey Clan also believes in this."
Bao Bao said to Qin Wushuang joyfully: "Human, I didn't break my word, right?"
Qin Wushuang was brimming with happiness: "Thank you two so much!" When he said the words, Qin Wushuang's voice cracked. He was too happy. The moment he had entered the Dispersed Praying Mountain, he had felt anxious and uncertain. He felt that since that Spiritual Infant Fruits was such a rare thing, wouldn't he have only a slim hope?
Unexpectedly, not only did the Monkey King Mountain have it, he would be given it. And it had only been two month of time since he entered the Dispersed Praying Mountain. Roughly, he only left the Stargaze Palace half a year ago.
It was still far from the three year promise he had made with the Head Palace Master and with his teacher.
Seeing Qin Wushuang's joy, the Silver Monkey King also appreciated him as he complimented: "Wushuang, a young man like you is rare. You value relationships greatly and would risk your life to travel through the Dispersed Praying Mountain for others. If all humans had such passion as you, the humans in the Tian Xuan Land would not have such a difficult time, ha ha."
Qin Wushuang said: "It's not others, it's my teacher."
"Regardless of teacher or disciple, they are all the others." The Silver Monkey King laughed: "I have lived for thousand of years and seen too many sly and unrighteous humans. I have seen too many humans that schemed against each other. Today they are friends, the next day they are enemies. Today they are teacher and disciples, in the next day, they are strangers."
Qin Wushuang remained silent. For sure, since the Silver Monkey King had lived such long time, he must have a vast knowledge. Being the king of a clan, he would not injure humans for no reason. Relating to Qin Wushuang's experience living in the secular world, there were indeed too many schemers and cheaters as the king had said.
"Ok, Wushuang, let's go get the Spiritual Infant Fruits. Bao Bao, are you going to come along?" Now, the Silver Monkey King would ask for Bao Bao's suggestion for each decision he made.
Bao Bao jumped from the stone chair and yelled: "How could I not go?"
The Silver Monkey King laughed: "Wushuang, please."
Led by the old and the young Monkey King, Qin Wushuang came to a cliff side on the left of the Phoenix Return Mountain. The Silver Monkey laughed: "Bao Bao, stay here with Wushuang, I am going to get the Spiritual Infant Fruits."
Bao Bao said impatiently: "I am going to go, I am going to thank Big Brother Wushuang myself."
After he had finished saying that, Bao Bao twisted his body and headed to the side of the cliff. He climbed down like a bolt of lightning. In a moment, like a ray of gold light, Bao Bao scrambled back up.
As soon as he laid out his hands, a sparkling, translucent and pure fruit like a piece of white jade appeared in his hand. The shape of this fruit was like the innocent and pure shape of a baby. This caused Qin Wushuang to feel a strange thought emerge in his head the moment he looked at it—Wasn't this a Ginseng fruit?
He remembered that in the methodology of his previous world, the Ginseng fruit had this shape. Could this Spiritual Infant Fruits be the legendary ginseng?
However, the effects of this Spiritual Infant was inferior to the legendary ginseng fruit. When one consumed the ginseng, they would gain immortality and be as strong as the moon and sun.
Bao Bao said with a happy smile: "Big Brother Wushuang, this Spiritual Infant Fruits have completely matured. Just take it."
Just as Qin Wushuang was about to take it, the Silver Monkey King said: "Hold on!"
He saw the Silver Monkey King walking over with a green jade bottle to put the Spiritual Infant Fruits in.
"The Spiritual Infant Fruits are not normal items, ordinary storage object will not keep its spiritual Qi fresh. Only this green jade bottle could retain the spiritual Qi. So when you take it out, it would be like as if it was just harvested."
Qin Wushuang accepted it respectfully and said with gratitude: "Thank you so much."
The Silver Monkey King sighed: "Wushuang, I should be the one to thank you. If you did not urge Bao Bao to consume that Holy Ivory Flower, I am afraid this battle would dragged on another month. The Monkey Clan would have suffered an immense loss."
Qin Wushuang did not seize all the glory for himself: " It was Bao Bao's good fortune. It's something he should have consumed. I only reminded him."
"Ha ha, it's rare to see someone that doesn't take all the praise." The Silver Monkey King laughed: "Of course, let's seek truths from the acts. You still made a great contribution by protecting Bao Bao."
As he spoke, the Silver Monkey King stopped for a moment and said to Qin Wushuang: "Wushuang, I am afraid those Barbarians will find out your identity after seeing your arrow. Thus, after you return to the human countries, you must be careful that the Barbarians might come and seek revenge."
Bao Bao said angrily: "Darn those Barbarians, when I gain my full power, I will slaughter my way to the Barbarian Tribe and kill all eight of their Chieftains, let's see if they can still stir up a havoc."
The Silver Monkey King did not stop him and nodded: "Bao Bao, for this grudge, we will seek them out sooner or later. When the elite warriors return from the beast sacrificial ceremony, we will gather all our warriors and slaughter to the Abyss Barbarian Tribe!"
When they returned to the Stone Forest Cave, Bao Bao laughed: "Wushuang, you came to the Monkey King Mountain as a guest. Why don't you stay here and hang out, you can leave when the elite warriors of the Monkey Clan have returned."
The Silver Monkey King looked forward and wished for him to stay. Since he was injured, he needed some time to recover. And Bao Bao had only just evolved into the Golden Monkey King and did not have the power to resist against the combined attack from the three Chieftains. With Qin Wushuang here, it would be beneficial to the Monkey King Mountain.
Qin Wushuang thought inwardly: "My teacher's dantian was sealed by the Head Palace Masters and the other elders with the Four Division Lock Seal, it will hold for up to three years. And since I received such great benefits from the Monkey Clan and became good friends with Bao Bao, it would not be courteous for me to just immediately leave."
He immediately nodded: "Ok, please allow me impose on you for a while longer."
Bao Bao was overjoyed when he heard that he said yes: "Boss Wushuang, don't talk about imposing. I am more than happy that you can stay."
After he had finished speaking, he pulled Qin Wushuang's sleeve: "Let's go, Senior Brother Wushuang, I will show you around."
He pulled him away without allowing him to speak. The Silver Monkey King also felt extremely gratified when he watched this scene. The Silver Monkey King had lived for thousand of years and had a keen sense of judgment when it came to people. Naturally, he could see that this Qin Wushuang was not ordinary! It would only help Bao Bao by becoming friends with him!
