"The Xuan Yuan Mound?" Both Tan Zhongchi and Qin Wushuang were surprised.
"They're from the Xuan Yuan Mound." Bao Bao thought hard, "I remember the place was called Whirlwind Snow Building that is located in the far north. It seems that the Whirlwind Snow Building has some relationship with the Monkey Clan. However, the Silver Monkey King said that it's all in the past. With the current situation, ever since the Monkey Clan was exiled to the Dispersed Praying Mountain, we've had very little interactions with many of the powerhouses from the Xuan Yuan Mound."
Tan Zhongchi could not laugh or cry as he looked at Qin Wushuang with a smile: "Wushuang, this is fate. Regarding if whether it is a good fate, I would not dare to guess. However, I cannot predict how the things in Xuan Yuan Mound will go."
Qin Wushuang said seriously: "Teacher, my mind is currently only focused on dealing with the Nine Palace Faction. In my mind, I only have a grand goal of making the Stargaze Palace known to all and making the Great Luo Empire rise above all human countries."
Tan Zhongchi voiced his approval: "Great, I clearly did not judge you wrong. Wushuang, I feel happy that you have such a grand wish. I have more reasons to believe that this wish will be realized one day."
Bao Bao laughed: "Wouldn't that be a piece of cake? Boss Wushuang, I think you can complete this wish in ten years times. By that time, you better accompany me on my return to the Dispersed Praying Mountain to deal with the Barbarian Tribe."
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Alright."
He stood up and said: "Bao Bao, let's go set up the defense perimeter. Let's let Teacher rest so he can restore his power."
"Alright." Bao Bao agreed.
Indeed, the aftereffects of the Spiritual Infant Fruit was so powerful in defiance of the natural order. The more Tan Zhongchi practiced, the more astonished he was. Each day, he could feel a wave of strong presence spread all around his dantian. That was a wave of full of vital energy that kept growing like a vigorous baby.
"No wonder the Spiritual Infant Fruits are a divine object. Just as Bao Bao said, it should not be any problem for me to break into the Perfect Stage. Perhaps, I can make an attempt in one year."
Inwardly, Tan Zhongchi was filled with joy. Whenever he thought about how Qin Wushuang had strived for such a miraculous change, he only felt warmth and gratification.
In less than a month of time, Tan Zhongchi had recovered his strength to the same level before his injuries and had even advanced a bit. Of course, he knew that he could not take everything in at the same time. It would not be realistic to charge into the Perfect Stage. At the moment, he suppressed this urge and summoned Qin Wushuang: "Wushuang, I am already completely healed. You have protected me for this long, don't delay your own training. From this point, go train."
Stammering, Qin Wushuang nodded and said: "Teacher, I have a request."
"Tell me." Kindness filled Tan Zhongchi's eyes.
"I would like to return to the Bai Yue Country, could I forgo participating in this year's year-end exam?"
Tan Zhongchi laughed: "At your level, there is no need to participate in the year-end exam. Go ahead. I promised you to not restrict your freedom."
Qin Wushuang had also only just recently walked out from the shadow of that battle with Zhao Heng as he nodded: "Teacher, please send my regards to Senior Sister and the others. I will return to the Stargaze Palace early next year."
This time, Qin Wushuang would return home to activate the Third Circle of the Seven Deadly Formation Arrays. Most importantly, he needed to break the seal on the Purple Flame Electric Beast. With this Purple Flame Electric Beast freed, Qin Wushuang would have enough trump cards to fight against the Nine Palace Faction!
After bidding goodbye to his teacher, Qin Wus
huang brought Bao Bao and headed to the Bai Yue Country.
Whether it was a coincident or not, Qin Wushuang had been in the sect for three years now. And for each of the four times he had returned home, it had been in winter. The previous three times were before the new year. The remaining time he had been transported back to the Great Cang Mountain through the transportation circle.
The first time, he returned home to avert a national crisis. The second time was last year, he had returned in victory from the Heavenly Lake Empire. The third time would be this time.
He calculated that it had been exactly one year since the last time he had returned to the Bai Yue Country. Last year around this time, his brother-in-law, Da Xi Ming had consumed the Supreme Quality Initial Stage Pill . If no accidents had happened, he should be at the Upper Sky Realm by now.
"Boss Wushuang, where are we going this time?" Bao Bao spoke with a completely curious tone.
Qin Wushuang laughed: "To my home, the Bai Yue Country. Bao Bao, I am taking you to a fun place."
Bao Bao could not resist against the word "fun." As soon as he heard the words, he became excited: "Yay, how much fun?"
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Before I take you there, you must promise me to not tell anyone this secret, including the elders of your clan."
Bao Bao thought: "Not even the Silver Monkey King?"
Qin Wushuang gave a long sigh: "No."
Bao Bao said seriously: 'Alright, Boss Wushuang, you must have your reasons to do so. Don't worry, I will not tell anyone."
"Alright, I will take you there." Qin Wushuang said with a laugh.
This time when Qin Wushuang returned home, he kept a low-profile and did not pay a visit to anyone. Instead, he entered the border quietly. This year's situation was the same as last year. Large groups of farmers came to offer their help at the Heavenly Royal Mansion.
Indeed, after a year, the construction of the Heavenly Royal City was different. The current Heavenly Royal Mansion already had its outlooks and formed the initial shape of a major city.
Qin Wushuang returned to the Royal Qin mansion quietly. Naturally, the entire family was extremely happy when they saw each other. Just like Qin Wushuang's prediction, Da Xi Ming, his brother-in-law had already advanced to the Upper Sky.
And his father had arrived at the peak of Stage Nine of the Genuine Force. He was only one step away from the Upper Sky.
"Wushuang, the intelligence from the Tong family said that you are going out on business. I thought you would be gone for a very long time. I didn't expect that you would be able to come home for new year's." Qin Lianshan was extremely happy. Currently, with his son becoming more capable and holding a higher position at the Stargaze Palace, he was delighted.
He had longed for his son to become successful and his son had done it. Being a father, his only wish would be that his son would come home often.
And Qin Wushuang did not fail to live up to his father's expectation. He had come home every new year and arranged everything perfectly.
"Father, this business trip went well, thus I came home early. Is everything going well at home?"
While Qin Wushuang was talking, the sound of rushed footsteps came from outside the door. A childish sound came from outside. Next, a cute little boy stood at the door after charging in. He shook a pinwheel and looked inside with curiosity.
Qin Xiu, who was standing outside the door smiled: "Chengcheng, do you know which one is Uncle?"
Currently, Little Chengcheng was a year and four months old. The children of this world seemed to grow faster than the ones in Qin Wushuang's previous one. Little Chengcheng was already as cute and outgoing as the kids two or three years old from his previous world.
The little guy stood by the door and thought for a moment. He extended his little hand and pointed at Qin Wushuang: "He is Uncle."
Qin Wushuang walked over with great joy and extended his hands: "Chengcheng, would you like a hug from Uncle?"
Since Little Chengcheng was born of the Royal family, he was not shy as he said with chuckle: "Uncle, Mommy talks about how powerful you are everyday. She says that you are the most powerful uncle in the world."
Qin Wushuang laughed: "That's your mom complimenting me, do you think I am powerful?"
The little guy tilted his hand and looked again. Then, he mumbled: "Mommy would never lie to me. If mommy said you are great, then of course you are great."
These words even made Qin Lianshan laugh.
Qin Xiu walked in and looked at Qin Wushuang with a smile: "Wushuang, you are back."
"Sis, you are still so young." Qin Wushuang sighed.
Qin Xiu laughed: "Wushuang, when did you learn how to talk so smoothly. How could I be still be so young the more older I get? Nothing like this would happen in the world."
Qin Wushuang laughed and suddenly, he remembered something: "Sis, that may actually be possible in this world. Sis, think, how would you look like when you are one hundred years old?"
Qin Xiu said while pretending to be angry: "One hundred years old, if I can live that long, I will have a face full of wrinkles and white hair."
Qin Wushuang laughed: "If nothing unexpected happens, that would happen. How about this, with Brother-in-law entering the Upper Sky, wouldn't he become lonely with such long lifespan? So I've decided to give you a few hundred years of youth."
Qin Xiu thought he was joking as she laughed: "Wushuang, not seeing you for a year, you have become much more smooth. Tell me quickly, do you have someone on your mind?"
Qin Wushuang laughed: 'Sis, I am not joking. Currently, Father and Brother-in-law are all at the Upper Sky. With good luck, they will reach an even higher stage. At the very least, they would live for another few hundred years. I don't want anyone missing from my family. Thus, I will let you keep your youth."
Bao Bao was overjoyed while sitting on Qin Wushuang's shoulder. Of course, he knew Qin Wushuang's intention as he became excited and scratched his ears and cheeks.
From outside the door, Da Xi Ming's straightforward laughter came: "Wushuang, what method do you have to preserve your sister's youth?"
Da Xi Ming walked in with a face full of joy. Little Chengcheng called: "Daddy."
Qin Wushuang touched Bao Bao: "Initially, I wouldn't dare to imagine it. However, today, none of my words are false. Bao Bao, meet my family."
With familiarity, Bao Bao cupped his hands and imitated how humans greeted each other. His fluffy body appeared extremely comical. He did not even forget Little Chengcheng as he also cupped his hands to him.
Little Chengcheng also started to do the same as he found it curious. This way, with one saluting another, a human and beast started to salute to each other.
"Bao Bao is from the Monkey Clan at the Monkey King Mountain in the Dispersed Praying Mountain. The Monkey King Mountain is rich in spiritual produces. The Monkey Clan had given me two thousand-year spiritual fruits. These extremely rare fruits are called the Green Ice-Heart Fruits. An ordinary person will gain the power of the Upper Sky immediately after consumption. At the same time, they would gain five hundred years of youthful life!"
After he had finished speaking, he pulled the two jade boxes out and held them in his hands. As soon as these divine goods had appeared, radiant lights illuminated the hall. Even the people among the secular world could not help but feel stirred and moved when they saw such divine treasure. They knew immediately that this treasure was not ordinary!
