Qin Wushuang waved his hand and tossed him a purple long sword. Then, he said with a smile: "This was Ye Wentong's sword and not an ordinary object. This will be the welcome gift. This set of armour also belonged to Ye Wentong. Of course, it belongs to you."
Qin Wushuang was rather generous. He had no reason to be stingy since he was generous at another's expense. Now, regarding weapons and armours, Qin Wushuang did not have any urgent needs. Naturally, he was happy to give them away as a favor.
When Lin Dian took these two things, he looked at Qin Wushuang with disbelief. Indeed, he was somewhat shocked. Although he understood that the other party was trying to win him over, despite this fact, he did not expect that he would generously give away these things so freely. Even for welcome presents, one would only give away some small gifts. How could he give away such important weapon and armour?
For your information, Ye Wentong had been the head of the Red Maple Human Clan. His weapon and armour were all top-tier treasures!
"It's one of the reasons to win you over." Qin Wushuang said with a smile, "Most importantly, among all your warriors with the foreign surnames, I think you are the most qualified to keep it."
After he had finished, he laughed and said again, "This is only an encouragement, and not an ending. Lin Dian, if you are a man, then give me your word. Regardless of whether you go to the Stargaze Palace or not, I only need your word."
"Let me ask you something, if you go to the Stargaze Palace, can you maintain absolute loyalty. From this point, would you follow the Stargaze Palace to live and die with it?" Qin Wushuang asked seriously, "Although my Stargaze is only a sect in the human countries, our thousand year legacy passes down this spirit. Life and death go hand in hand!"
Lin Dian's felt his blood boiling. For his entire life, he had pursued this spirit. However, those descendants of the eight Great Bandits in the Red Maple Human Clan had absolutely no skills, and no morals. He could not feel a single trace of belongingness and acknowledgement.
Hearing Qin Wushuang's question, Lin Dian did not hold back as he answered: "If the Stargaze is truly as good as you say, then so what if I entrust my life and death to it?"
Qin Wushuang gave a carefree laugh: "I only wanted to hear your conviction, and I did not ask you to die. Lin Dian, one day, you will also say to me that you felt fortunate to have chosen to follow me!"
A trace of a smile emerged from the corner of Lin Dian's mouth: "I also look forward to it! However, I also heard about you in the Red Maple Human Clan. I know that you are no ordinary character. In the future, if you can truly establish yourself in the Forbidden Spiritual Zones, I will tell you myself that the decision I made today was extremely smart!"
Instantly, Qin Wushuang's heroic spirit rose: "Great, it's a deal! That day will come."
"It's a deal." Lin Dian also laughed.
Qin Wushuang said: "I have a letter here, please keep it safe. You will give it to Zhuo Buqun, the Head Palace Master when you arrive at the Stargaze Palace. He will know what to do."
Since Lin Dian had intended to follow him, he did not question him as he nodded and took it.
Then, Qin Wushuang said again: "There are a lot of talented people among the elite warriors with the foreign surnames. While I do value talent, at the same time I cannot neglect their moral character. Lin Dian, you know many of them. If they have good morals, regardless of their strength, you can select some and take them as your subordinates. When you arrive at a new place, it would always be better to have some of your own people, right? However, my only condition is that the people you select must have definite moral characters. They must not be people that would betray the sect for profit, or have a two-sided face!"
After a moment of silent thinking, Lin Dian nodded: "Although we seemed to have abandoned the Red Maple Human Clan, the people we have abandoned are descendants of the eight Great Bandits. If they weren't without morals or skills, excluding us with the foreign surnames, even if we couldn't defeat you guys, we would never betray them! Among those people, certainly, there are some dishonorable people. Yet, there are a few righteous and brave guys. I will pick some. Not too many, just seven or eight. However, the people I pick will at least be at the Middle Stage, and a few at the Advanced Stage."
Qin Wushuang laughed: "That's for the best. For people, quality is better than quantity. Without a good moral character, even a few hundred people would be useless. When it would be time to use them, they would add even more trouble. For such people, we don't need them."
Lin Dian nodded slowly: "Ok, then I will go and select a few."
Qin Wushuang nodded: "Don't be in haste to select them. When you go back, you should keep an eye in the dark. For now, don't let them know my intentions. When we select people, we cannot pick the crooks among the honest people. If we are to pick one, we must absolutely pick the right one."
Lin Dian was extremely satisfied. Through the conversation with Qin Wushuang, he had completely experienced this young man's charisma. In comparison, his generosity seemed to be insignificant. Most importantly, from this young man, Lin Dian felt a mature temperament of a ruler.
He had such a temperament at this young age. One could see the endless limits of this young man's potential and future!
To work for such a young man, his future would definitely be much better than staying at the Dispersed Praying Mountain and doing nothing! This was Lin Dian's conclusion after much analysis!
After Lin Dian had left, Bao Bao scrambled out and smiled: "Boss, how did it go?"
Qin Wushuang said: "Lin Dian is a promising talent. He's worth taking on."
Bao Bao nodded: "That person has a strong integrity. By the way, Boss, the Silver Monkey King ordered us to see him a moment ago."
Qin Wushuang said: "I still haven't congratulated him after he broke into the Void Martial Stage. Let's go now."
When they had returned to the Phoenix Reversal Mountain where the Monkey Clan Holy Ground was located, the aura the Silver Monkey King had undergone a tremendous change after the breakthrough. Indeed, his complexion seemed great.
When he saw Qin Wushuang, the Silver Monkey King laughed: "Young Master Qin, are you having a comfortable time living at the Monkey King Mountain these past few days?"
"Haha, with the beautiful scenery of the Monkey King Mountain, I feel at home. Indeed, it's very comfortable."
Hearing his question, the Silver Monkey King laughed with satisfaction: "That's great. Young Master Qin, when Bao Bao becomes an adult, most likely the Monkey Clan will move back to the Xuan Yuan Mound and take back the territory that once belonged to us. At that time, this Dispersed Praying Mountain will become ownerless. If you like, you can take the mountain as your yard. The entire Monkey Clan will be glad to give it to you."
Qin Wushuang was shocked: "Your Majesty, how could you do this?"
The Silver Monkey King laughed: "Why not? The Tian Xuan Land is like this. An ownerless object will only get robbed by people in less than a year. If the Monkey Clan truly moves back, this Monkey King Mountain will become ownerless. Rather than let it get taken away by other powerhouses, we would rather give it to our family."
The Silver Monkey King had said these words from the bottom of his heart. Bao Bao also said: "Boss Wushuang, this is not a joke. It would be too unfortunate if other powerhouses take away the Monkey King Mountain. If it falls to one of our own, even if the Monkey Clan do not live well at the Xuan Yuan Mound, we can still come back!"
The Silver Monkey King looked at Qin Wushuang in earnest. Apparently, he looked forward to his answer.
Qin Wushuang gave a long sigh: "Since your majesty already said these words, of course, I cannot refuse. In the future, if I build my own powerhouse, I will use this Dispersed Praying Mountain as its stronghold!"
The Silver Monkey King laughed: "Great! Young Master Qin, by the way, although this mountain is not comparable to many of the holy ground at the Xuan Yuan Mound, it is a rare place. In the Dispersed Praying Mountain, it definitely has the richest Qi and the best scenery. Or else, that Red Maple and Barbarian Tribe would not have lusted after it."
Qin Wushuang said: "Of course."
The Silver Monkey King waved his hand and suddenly, the Red Face Guardian walked over with a tray in his hand. On it was a jade bottle. Apparently, something valuable was contained in there.
"Young Master Qin, this is a small gift from the Monkey Clan to thank you for your most valuable assistance. Please take it and don't decline." The Silver Monkey King said with a smile.
Qin Wushuang repeatedly declined: "Your Majesty, with my and Bao Bao's friendship, it's the least I could have done to help him come up with some strategies. Besides, you've already done me a huge favor when you gave me those gifts in the past."
The Silver Monkey King laughed: "That's quite another matter. Young Master Qin had already saved the Monkey Clan once. Now, it is the second time, how could the two times be the same? Young Master Qin, if you decline, then you are thinking that our gift is not valuable enough."
"Your Majesty, aren't you forcing me to accept things I should not have?" Qin Wushuang gave a long sigh.
The Silver Monkey King put down that tray and said: "Young Master Wushuang, we've had this thing since the first day the Monkey Clan had moved here. Until its growth today, we have finally found the name of this thing from our ancient records."
Bao Bao approached: "King, what is this?"
The Silver Monkey King said with a solemn expression: "This is the Purple Cloud Spiritual Fruit!"
"Purple Cloud Spiritual Fruit?" Bao Bao blinked his eyes, "What does this thing do? Can it help improve your strength? Is it as good as the Holy Ivory Flower?"
The Silver Monkey King laughed embarrassedly: "Naturally it's still far from being comparable to the Holy Ivory Flower. This is not a fruit that will increase your spiritual Qi or make you live longer. The information says that this thing is the seed of the ancient spiritual fruit. After consuming it, wings will grow out of your back! When you fly in the sky, you can travel a thousand miles in one jump. A day of flying could enable you to travel one hundred miles! It's a mystical skill on par with the gods!"'
"Travel one hundred miles in a day?" Even Qin Wushuang was dumbstruck. He kept shaking his head, "For such a rare spiritual treasure, even more reason that I cannot accept it."
Qin Wushuang gave a long sigh: "Young Master Qin, if you don't accept it, the more useless this thing will be to the Monkey Clan. Besides humans, the majority of the beast clan's body would conflict with the effects of the fruit. Even if they consume it, they would not grow the Yin Yang Purple Cloud Wings."
Qin Wushuang asked curiously: "Why is that?"
The Silver Monkey King said seriously: "That's right. Although there are some humans the Monkey Clan is on good terms with, you are the only one that has done so much for us. Tell me, who else should we give it to, besides you? Although it's somewhat inferior to the Holy Ivory Flower, it is still one of the two greatest treasures of the Monkey King Mountain. Now with you taking the Purple Cloud Spiritual Fruit, and Bao Bao having consumed the Holy Ivory Flower, the two greatest treasures will each have found an owner. The Monkey Clan would not have lived here for thousands of years in vain."
For thousands of years, the Monkey King mountain had produced these two great treasures. It was clear that these divine spiritual treasures were extremely rare! Even the Spiritual Infant Fruits and that once-in-thousand-years Green Ice-Heart Fruits is far inferior to these two.
Although the thousand year medicinal treasures like the Spiritual Infant Fruits and the Green Ice-Heart Fruits were not very common, they were also not that rare. However, they were rare treasures at the Monkey King Mountain.
And treasures like the Holy Ivory Flower and this Purple Cloud Spiritual Fruit were the rarest in the Xuan Yuan Mound!
